Chapter 422 – Master-Slave Contract

Perhaps because of how intense the sunlight was in the Endless Wilderness, clansmen of the Sky Origin Divine Clan had tanned black skin. They had mysterious tattoos on their bodies and along with their exceptionally long limbs, it was easy to recognize them.

At this moment, a group of Sky Origin Divine Clan’s clansmen was having an intense argument with a luxuriously dressed merchant.

The amount of people looking at the commotion increased in numbers, but the majority of them coldly looked from the sidelines.

Nie Li stood among this group of people and could clearly hear their argument.

The two clansmen of the Sky Origin Divine Clan that stood in the front were roughly in their forties to fifties. They were flushed with anger and their eyes were as round as a ball. Behind them was a bunch of Sky Origin Divine Clan youngsters. They were roughly 16-17 years old, with dull and desolate eyes.

“We will definitely not agree to your terms. We’ve made so many transactions before and they were all valued by their cultivations. Thirty thousand spiritual stones, nothing more than that. If you guys aren’t selling, then forget it!” Said a fat middle-aged merchant indifferently.
“We’re the Sky Gold Tribe of the Sky Origin Divine Clan. Our tribesmen are all the most outstanding warriors among the clan. These are the most outstanding youths among our clan’s younger generation. You can’t judge their value based on cultivation like in the past!” The two Sky Origin’s clansmen argued, not willing to give in.

Hushed whispering could be heard from the crowd.
“Those clansmen of the Sky Origin Divine Clan are greedy and insatiable. Thirty thousand spiritual stones for one is already a high price and they’re actually still not satisfied with it!”

“If this kind of practice is encouraged, the price would only be more expensive to purchase a Sky Origin Divine Clan slave in the future!”
These merchants from various places were here for the clansman of Sky Origin Divine Clan. Naturally, they would stand on that middle-aged merchant’s side.

As long as they had the money, they wouldn’t have to worry about not being able to buy a Sky Origin Divine Clan slave. Because there were several small towns around the border, there would be a large amount of Sky Origin Divine Clan slaves for sale on a daily basis. Afterall, there weren’t that many rich and powerful people that could offer thirty thousand spiritual stones for a Sky Origin Divine Clan slave.

Nie Li looked at those skinny and boney clansmen of the Sky Origin Divine Clan and couldn’t help sighing in his heart. They were once the most powerful fighting clan in the Draconic Ruins Realm that possessed unrivalled glory, and controlled a matchless and enormous kingdom. Now, they had fallen to such a stage. Arguing to the point of having their faces flushed with anger to compete over the price of their own clansmen. They had lost their glory long ago.

Nie Li wasn’t someone that would feel compassionate for others. But thinking about the Sky Origin Divine Clan that had fallen to such stage because of the confrontation against the Sage Emperor, and yet, not getting any respect from other clans at all, he couldn’t help letting out a sigh.

The Sage Emperor had sealed the endless Time and Space, intending to refine the few hundred realms, with the Draconic Ruins Realm included. Whereas the people of the Draconic Ruins Realm were unknown of this matter and were still having an internal strife with one another.
Thinking of all his experience from his previous life, Nie Li couldn’t help feeling depressed in his heart.

“Where are those two merchants from?”
“You don’t know? Those are from the Dragonbreath Chamber. They are in control of half of the slave transaction shares. That horse-faced middle-aged man is the Vice President of the chamber. It’s impossible for the Sky Origin Divine Clan’s clansmen to discuss price with them. In these few towns, no average person is willing to offend the Dragonbreath Chamber!”
Hearing this, Nie Li looked over and saw a middle-aged man with an arrogant expression, holding his hands behind his back. This should be the Vice-President of the Dragonbreath Chamber that those people were talking about.

Since it turned out that there’s a chance for him to purchase some clansmen of the Sky Origin Divine Clan, Nie Li definitely wouldn’t let such a chance go. Those few youths of the Sky Origin Divine Clan should be at 1-stage Dao of Dragon Realm. Furthermore, their talents were pretty good.

Nie Li forced his way through the crowd.

The leading clansman of the Sky Origin Divine Clan said in resentment, “President Lin, we just wish for a fair price. These few youths are the geniuses among our tribes. If it wasn’t for us landing in such a predicament, we would definitely not be willing to let them become slaves!”

“Fair price? Our price is already fair enough! If anyone is willing to offer a higher price than us, you can sell them to them!” Said a middle-aged man wearing silver luxurious clothing.
The Dragonbreath Chamber’s President Lin said nothing.

“Thirty thousand spiritual stones, that’s the price for ordinary 1-stage Dao of Dragon Realm!”

“They only possess the cultivation of 1-stage Dao of Dragon Realm. You claim that they are geniuses, but who knows if they can reach 2-stage Dao of Dragon Realm in their lifetimes?”

“Forget it! If you’re unwilling to make a transaction, you can find someone else that would offer a higher price!” The few merchants under President Lin said one after another with icily arrogant expressions.
Nie Li had guessed that they’re probably certain that no one would be willing to offend the Dragonbreath Chamber by offering a higher price!

The two clansmen of the Sky Origin Divine Clan had despair and wrath flashing through the depths of their eyes. However, there was nothing that they could do. As for those Sky Origin Divine Clan youths behind them, they all had their fists tightly clenched with tears flickering in their eyes. Being sold off like pigs, it’s definitely a huge humiliation to them!

Those two clansmen of the Sky Origin Divine Clan looked over at the people that were watching the exchange from the sideline; however, everyone turned their heads away in disdain. No one bothered to help them.

Is this a joke? Who’s willing to offend the Dragonbreath Chamber because of a few Sky Origin Divine Clan slaves?

“I offer fifty thousand spiritual stones for one, I’ll take all you have!” Nie Li’s calm voice sounded from the crowd.
In a split second, everyone had directed their shocking gazes towards Nie Li.

Even President Lin of the Dragonbreath Chamber revealed a displeased expression with his brows knitted together. He clearly didn’t expect there to be some ignorant fool coming out and going against their Dragonbreath Chamber.

Hearing Nie Li’s words, the two clansmen of the Sky Origin Divine Clan exchanged a glance and hesitated for a brief moment. Thereafter, they made up their mind.

Nie Li offered fifty thousand, it’s still much better compared to the Dragonbreath Chamber, which only offered thirty thousand!

With so many people present, only Nie Li was willing to increase the price.
Nie Li’s gaze fell onto those youths behind the two clansmen of the Sky Origin Divine Clan. There was a total of six Sky Origin Divine Clan youths. Although they were skinny and didn’t have any spirit, Nie Li felt the auras being emitted from them were still very powerful.

“This is three hundred thousand spiritual stones!” Nie Li waved his right hand and threw an interspatial ring.

One of the clansmen caught Nie Li’s interspatial ring and, thereafter, glanced inside and nodded towards the clansman next to him.

They never expected Nie Li to be so straightforward. Generally, transactions would require them to conclude the contract first, but Nie Li had actually threw out three hundred thousand spiritual stones so easily.

“This is their Master-Slave Contract!” One of the clansmen passed the six Master-Slave Contracts over to Nie Li.

Nie Li took took them and lightly smiled.

When Nie Li had completed the transaction, a cold voice sounded out.

“Brother, it doesn’t seem too right for you to do this!” It was the voice of President Lin and, judging from his tone, he seemed displeased.

    1. They are only merchants but nie li is always seems to have right on his side even when people are being told baselessly that these are geniuses but there is no proof are people supposed to just take them at their word

  1. “Oh yeah by the way, the Endless Wilderness has super harsh sunlight so of course these slaves are black.”

    Idk something about Nie Li just casually buying slaves, being excited to buy slaves and generally being nonchalant about buying slaves makes me kind of uncomfortable.

    I mean I’m sure they’ll get the treatment of the Nie Li posse, but still… this chapter………

    I hope they don’t just get referred to as “the slaves” later on. You know how the original Nie Li gang from Glory City was always referred to as “the others”? Like: Nie Li, Liu Pao and the others all charged forward!

  2. I think the price of everything in DRR are mess up.
    Every major sect surely have millions of fund and even Long Tianmiam got 500k for himself.
    In stead of spending them to support tons of Axis experts, isn’t it better to invest on 10 of DoD who will never ever betray you cos of slave contract.
    Ok, feeding them might be trouble but I think buying 4-6 and spare the rest as food cost is still possible, right?
    Why need thousand of Axis minions who probably never gonna reach DoD.

    1. It was said that Long Tian Ming has 2 DoD that followed Long Yu Yin. Furthermore, why bother sending DoD to Li Yifung, Axis is good enough for him to get rid of the Demon League.
      PS. We still don’t know Long Tian Ming’s forces, maybe he also spent the money for DoD and of course DoD is also limited, so if you calculate it maybe with a few DoD and axis realm are more effective than all DoD. Like if 6 DoD fight against 2 DoD and 100 Axis Realm of course we know the outcome.

    2. Sky origin clan members require 50 thousand or so spirit stones constantly I think every month or so and long whatever only has 500k after years of hard work and he still has to pay his people and even if he didn’t have anyone and just 10 or so sky origin experts with no one in the clan supporting him he won’t become it next head alsothe divine feathers sect just like the other sect has to pay all its members and supply all of its students on top of all that a dao of the dragon expert only has one life because all of their fate/star/axis soul become one at D.O.D stage

  3. There’s a clan with every member being dao of dragon realm… But instead of being the strongest faction in the world they’re slaves… Why… Why are they so dumb… This story is losing my interest

    1. Yeah they’re so dumb that they had to be defeated by a Supreme Existence that has 3 pages of the TDSB, killed countless supreme presence, made xiao yu’s parents (Supreme beings too) transport their daughter to millions of years into the future, has at least 5 deity rank demon beast to order around, and still nerfed because of his bone being sealed. But yeah DoD and being caged so stupid…

  4. I wonder where all this hate comes from… I mean, people getting angry about a book character going to buy slaves, being arrogant and whatnot. This kind of novels have this setting you know, à la ancient China, where slavery was pretty much normal and (as seen in other novels too) family/background literally allowed you to do anything you wished: “No matter if you’re stronger: touch me, and I’ll send my family/sect/clan to murder you and your family/sect/clan”. And that’s pretty much what Nie Li does: “I have a goal, I’ll do anything in my power to do that, but I need to get more power/money/influence or it’ll be useless”. People call him “Gary Stu” but I feel it’s not THAT bad: it suits the narration and I (personally) don’t care as long as I enjoy it.
    I’ve read other places where they say Nie Li being a pedophile. I don’t agree. Sure, he’s a centuries old man in a 13 old body, wooing on a 12 old girl, but that makes him a 13 old person in my book, and on that account, one or two years difference ain’t enough to make someone a pedo.

    Plot holes…. yeah there are some, but that doesn’t mean they won’t be mentioned nor filled someday (you never know), and even with those I still find TDG pretty enjoyable: Not the best book around, but still something I’m actually looking forward to read chapters every day, I’d vote it as 3.5/5 (MC a bit too awesome, secondary chars pretty much flat or just there for narration dues; excessive display on how hot the girls are, which I actually would approve if it weren’t stressed so much everytime. I know alchemy girl has wonderful boobs, but I don’t need to be reminded every single time… once in a while, sure but not all the time).

    Slavery (again). If in the book’s world slavery is normal, then it’s normal. No need to have MC being “oh god, why? Slaves? It’s horrible!”. If in that world it’s normal, it’s normal. He just bought six without a thought, we still don’t know how he’ll treat’em (the dragon guy has sworn absolute loyalty but aside a couple times where bigger things were at a stake, I don’t recall Nie Li being a jerk to him or ordering him around as a slave). In various comments I’ve read people being horrified by the fact “slave” is a topic in the book. So what? It’s not like the author is a slaver. Else you’d have to burn lots of books where they talk about murders, kidnapping, rape, and other “illegal” topics :L (and they actually did something similar in Europe some centuries ago). It’s a book. A BOOK. I really can’t understand people getting antsy about things talked about in a NOVEL :/

    And no, this ain’t to insult or diss people, it’s just I really can’t figure out how talking “slavery” in a book can get so much hate, where there are thousands (or millions) books/comics/movies that thrive on murder, kidnap, rape, drugs, and yet they’re good to be.

  5. It really seems like the cultivation levels are getting more and more arbitrary. Is it just me that finds it completely and utterly absurd that a bunch of 16 year olds are already Dao of the Dragon level 1? That’s like… stronger than their sect elders. It hasn’t even been attempted to explain why these people are so powerful – but it has repeatedly been stated that they have no resources, and even that they’re skinny! I mean, they’re literally thin enough that it looks like they don’t have the money for food! How the flying **** did these kids get all the way to Dragon level whilst struggling to eat? Doesn’t make any sense, and it makes all the struggles of other people seem like a bit of a joke. These kids are 1 level beneath Martial Ancestor, which is the highest realm introduced so far! I mean, it’s a gap almost equal to the gap between Draconic Ruins Realm (everyone is above Legend level) and Glory City (Legend level is highest).
