Chapter 394 – Ancestral Master Daozang

Void Illusionary Divine Palace, Main Hall

A long scarlet carpet led directly between the towering pillars and into the main hall.

Even inside, everyone’s auras seemed to be frozen and their soul realms remained useless.

Nie Li looked out in front of him. At the end of the main hall sat a cross-legged statue of a white-bearded elder, five or six meters in height. Even though it was only a statue, its craftsmanship was vivid and lifelike, as if it was a real person.

The statue was imposing and majestic, influencing others to have thoughts of worshipping him.

This was the Ancestral Master Daozang, spoken of in legends!

The Demon Lord stood only a dozen meters away from Ancestor Master Daozang’s statue as he quietly gazed up at it.

A murderous intent flashed through Nie Li’s eyes as he watched the Demon Lord. However, this wasn’t the right place for battle.

It’s very likely that Ancestral Master Daozang had hidden his true inheritance inside this main hall. Nie Li couldn’t let the Demon Lord get it, no matter what!

The Demon Lord sensed Nie Li’s presence and turned around to face him. The two briefly met eyes, then the Demon Lord turned back to face the statue, not minding Nie Li.

The Demon Lord’s aura used to be as sharp as a blade, but now it was more reserved. However, Nie Li sensed that the Demon Lord had become even more dangerous.

Nie Li didn’t know what kinds of opportunities the Demon Lord had received since entering the Draconic Ruins Realm. He was on high alert.

Suddenly, an endless sea of energy descended from above. Nie Li felt as though he could be drowned by this aura anytime.

Nie Li felt like he was going to be crushed by this energy, so he moblised the vine and the Myriad Miles Rivers and Mountains Painting to confront it.


A vast and distant voice sounded from the end of the main hall. It sounded surprised.

The voice spoke with a clear, booming tone. “I’ve waited for tens of millions of years. All the ones who’ve come before you were members of the demon clan. But now, I’ve finally received two young members of the human clan, both with good talent. Are the two of willing to succeed my legacy and serve mankind?”

The sound of this voice seemed to cleanse all wicked thoughts from their hearts.

“Human?” The Demon Lord glanced at Nie Li, who obviously looked like a demon to him.

Nie Li had used the Demon Blood Sacrifice to disguise himself as a demon, but this supreme power had seen through his disguise with a single glance.

The Demon Lord nodded and responded with indifference. “I’ll serve mankind.”

Wouldn’t it be bad if the Demon Lord obtained Ancestral Master Daozang’s legacy? Nie Li raised his head, stared into the empty air, and said, “I’m willing to serve mankind! However…” he pointed towards the Demon Lord and said, “I don’t believe that he can serve mankind. I implore the Ancestral Master to see clearly!”

The Demon Lord frowned as he looked at Nie Li, and a chilling ray flashed across his eyes. He clearly didn’t know how he’d offended Nie Li.

Ancestral Master Daozang’s voice was long and inuous, but penetrated their hearts. “Matters in the mortal world are closely tailed by karma. The two of you entered the Void Illusionary Divine Palace together, which means that fate has brought the two of you to me. The evil and good of the universe cannot be seen through. Why do we need to spent our efforts in futility?”

Nie Li furrowed his brows for a moment. Ancestral Master Daozang should definitely be able to see through the Demon Lord’s Spiritual Constellation Technique and realise that the Demon Lord had achieved his power through massacre. Yet Ancestral Master Daozang still wanted to accept such a despicable person as a disciple?

The Ancestral Master unhurriedly explained, “If you become my disciple, you will have the Daozang Secret Command, which allows you to command anyone of the Daozang lineage. However, a certain person will always be after your life, regardless of what you’ve done. That person can easily destroy the six major divine sects. If you’re afraid, you may back out now.”

“I’m willing.” the Demon Lord calmly replied without the slightest hesitation.

Nie Li, however, furrowed his brows. Since his reincarnation, he’d amassed quite an arsenal, from the [Heavenly God] cultivation technique to the Myriad Miles Rivers and Mountains Painting. With that, he could work his way to the pinnacle, until he was strong enough to confront the Sage Emperor. Right now, the Sage Emperor probably hadn’t even noticed him!

However, if Nie Li decided to join the Daozang lineage, then there was a high risk of being exposed. With his current position, challenging the Sage Emperor meant seeking death!

Even Ancestral Master Daozang, at his pinnacle, couldn’t to defeat the Sage Emperor!

Nie Li made his decision, cupped his hands, and said, “Please forgive me, Ancestral Master Daozang. I cannot become your disciple!”

“Oh?” Ancestral Master Daozang didn’t sound surprised. “Very well, then. The one to inherit my legacy will be him alone!”

Nie Li was crestfallen. If he couldn’t stop the Demon Lord from acquiring Ancestral Master Daozang’s strength, then it’d be even harder to deal with the Demon Lord in the future. After all, Nie Li definitely wouldn’t stoop to borrowing the Sage Emperor’s hand to deal with the Demon Lord. The members of the Daozang lineage were innocent; furthermore, they’d be a core strength in his fight against the Sage Emperor.

Nie Li was inwardly quite irritated by the situation. It seemed that there were things he couldn’t control, even though he’d come back to life.

Nie Li recalled how Ye Zong had died at the hands of the Demon Lord, and his heart was filled with rage. There would be a day of reckoning.

Ancestral Master Daozang spoke in a distant voice, as if he was calling from another dimension. “”Although you are unable to inherit my legacy, you are still fated to me. I sense the [Heavenly God] cultivation technique, the Myriad Miles Rivers and Mountains Painting, as well as the Profound Chant of Kong Ming.

It couldn’t have been easy to achieve so much in so little time. I do not know where you came from, but I can guess where you’re going. But regardless of how high your cultivation is, I doubt you can match the Sage Emperor. In these tens of thousands of years, countless numbers have tried to shatter the Sage Emperor’s seal on space and time, but none have succeeded.

You can kill the Sage Emperor a million times over, but he will always reconstruct his body and come back stronger. That is, unless you break his seal on time and space. On the other hand, you can only die once inside this space-time. However, if you can find the other reincarnations, then your chances may be different at ten percent.”

Nie Li was shocked. He never expected Ancestral Master Daozang to see through him so clearly.

“Reincarnations? Who are these reincarnations?” Nie Li pursued.

“Since the beginning of time and space, there are six people who have the power to confront the Sage Emperor. I am one of them. We six coexisted in harmony as we comprehend the Heavenly Dao. However, none of us ever expected the Sage Emperor to have such wild ambitions as to lay down a Heavenly Dao Inscription Array of the Nine Heavens and Ten Earths to seal time and space.

We fought him, but if it hadn’t been for the Goddess Jin Yan, the rest of us would’ve been destroyed. She used her body to create the Ancestral God Land and seal one of the Sage Emperor’s demonic bones. As of now, the rest of us are using our divine intent to cycle through reincarnation. If you can find the others, then perhaps you can break the Sage Emperor’s seal on time and space. But whether or not you can achieve that depends on your luck and your fate!”

Nie Li’s mind drifted at the new information that Ancestral Master Daozang had imparted upon him. It wasn’t until today that he’d found a whisper of the Sage Emperor’s true nature.

    1. I think Xiao Yu’s parents were among the six and Xiao Yu can perhaps be considered as a reincarnation of one of them. Nie Li’s master could also be considered as another one of the six, although this will have to wait for the author to confirm. Which means that Nie Li’s dog shit luck has already let him meet 2 of the 6 people. Things are looking up for him this time round

      1. I think we will find that Yu Yan the Spiritual goddess of fire is another one, her origins are way to mysterious to not be some loooong term foreshadowing, and at some point it was said that the sage Emporer was bound by golden flames or something, golden flames are what she is made out of

          1. That one is one of Emperor Kong Ming’s Sucessors I dont think that Group of people and this one will overlap more than just Nie Li himself. But as Far as Nie Li and Yu Yan being 2 of the 6 im sure of it.
            As Far as Xaio Yu being on of the 6 im almost sure that she isn’t and that although her parents did face the Sage Emperor that they weren’t part of the ancestors who from the beginning was appearently keeping the Sage Emepror in check. I think that they were just powerful cultivators who challenged the sage emperor when they learned of the threat or something along those lines

  1. Coffee Service~
    Thanks for the Chapter~

    So Nie Li meets his predecessors whom fought the Sage Emperor, i guess it’s time to plan the downfall of that tyrant with them now.

  2. Thanks for the chapter! As if Daozang is giving the Demon Lord his inheritance his goal is for the Sage Emperors defeat yet he gave it to a person who could be as potentially evil as him

    1. well he is giving it to him but it doesnt mean that sage emperor will not kill him, even if he grows to be as evil as emperor, sage emperor will still kill him cause he likes his power and wants to be first no matter what and cause he is going to be daozang commander that means that sage emperor will pursue him no matter where he goes, even if he gets back in tiny world demons will forever pursue him, well it will not matter cause inside tiny world demons are weak af but yea 😀

      1. Why do these f*ckers do these things? Its because everyone will keep reading their incomplete bullsh*t!!! After 400 chapters of this new novel, will he get bored and create another one?

        People should punish this kind of behavior and stop reading anything this f*cker releases until he completes his works.

  3. Plot Twist:
    Demon Lord and Nie Li end up as friends and fight the Sage Emperor together… During battle, Nie Li punches the Sage Emperor and his mask(I’m guessing he has one) comes off… after seeing his face everyone is in shock…The Sage Emperor is Nie Li from another dimension… :O
    We find out that the Sage Emperor was bored so he sent a part of his body(the branch in Nie Li) to another time and made him have the fate to always want revenge… He has done this in multiple times and dimension(yes, there are millions of Nie Li’s) but one of them found a book, a book that shouldn’t exist in that universe… Nevertheless, he still dies after a fierce fight, so the Sage Emperor forgets about it… Little did he know that the person who found the book wasn’t death but had reincarnated and because of that he couldn’t control his fate anymore… He was our MC, “our” real Nie Li 🙂

    1. well sage emperor is demon so he cant do demon blood sacrifice to take on human form and look like nie li, would prove excellent plot but it willnt happen

    1. the sort of built up for it remember that the reason the demon lord left glory city was because he was betrayed by glory city but that was long before our story began and i really dont care for that far back

  4. I’m calling it:
    the Demon Lord is a reincarnation (cause every hero needs an antihero), Yu Yan is one (quite obvious with all the hints about golden flames and the ancestral god land we got), Ye Ziyun is reincarnated (simply because she’s the main waifu and needs this for plot reasons) and Xiao Yu is the daughter of two of them (well, we basically were already told that), as for the last one, we’ll probably only encounter him later on, or it is waifu nr2 Ning’er

    1. xiao yu is daughter of ye ziyun and nie li ? that’s what you think ?? hmm… now that im thinking about it , it might be true! 😀 nie li and party went to fight sage emperor lost and when they were about to die they sent their daughter back to past to help them and to kill that son of a bitch! 😀 yeaa makes sense! 😀 but … daughter and father falling love with each other ? :O

      1. for that theroy to work Xaio Yu wouldnt be in the time line but in this time would be the time line where Nie Li dies again but as you said with Yi Ziyun sends Xaio Yu back in time and after Nie Li dies he would need to be reincarneted one more time for her to fight with him.
        Lastly Nie li has aready Lived for hundreds of years in his previous life i cant remember if Nie Li only heard the voice of Xaio Yu’s father or saw his figure too but either way if Xaio Yu’s father was him Nie Li should have been able to pick up on it. and now im gonna nullify my last point Nie Li remembers almost all of his past life when he reincarnated if not all.

  5. Wasn’t Nie li close to killing the Sage Emperor in his last life time without the help of this 6 weaklings?

    The only reason he lost was because he was tired out from demolishing the Sage emperor’s army as explained in the beginning.

    So why is he still getting surprised by this experts.

    anyway thanks…

    1. “You can kill the Sage Emperor a million times over, but he will always reconstruct his body and come back stronger.”

      He didn’t know that part. We know he didn’t know because of this part that comes after:

      “Nie Li’s mind drifted at the new information that Ancestral Master Daozang had imparted upon him. It wasn’t until today that he’d found a whisper of the Sage Emperor’s true nature.”

      1. Yes I agree with acquiring the new info. it still doesn’t explain why is he surprise by the strength of this guy.. who’s strength still needed 6 people to fight the sage emperor. When Nie li alone at his strongest with a single lifetime can do the same thing better than the 6 of them combined.

        1. he is surprised cause this guy and 5 others have strength of god rank, and as he knew he was the only one who had reached god rank but now he found out that there are this guy and 5 others who were as strong as him if not stronger. got it ? 😀

        2. Actually if you take into account the wording Nie Li was stronger than them in Nie Li’s previous Life he was a Supreme Expert Nie Li was stronger than the 6 Diety rank Beasts of the Sage Emperor but they still wore him down.
          The 6 ancestors were just reaching Diety rank when they had to fight and flee from the Sage Emperor.
          Its real confusing because they dont spell out ranks until Nie Li reaches to those realms.

  6. Thanks for the chapter.
    I know I’m lazy, but did Nie Li get the complete version of the Temporal book back in his previous life?
    Six reincarnations + Sage Emperor …. I’m having the same suspicion as others too.

    1. In his previous Life he noticed that the Temporial Demon Spirit book was missing a few pages and by the look of how the story is going he didnt know where any were
