Chapter 1657: Trend

The Doomed Star Sea had been an unusual land of the cursed since the human race had risen in the Mortal World.

The human race had various kinds of Qi warrior sects, among which the four great ancient sects were the strongest. In ancient times, there had also been strong sects that had competed with the four great ancient sects, but after losing the competition, they had also lost their place in the Mortal World, so they had gone out to explore new worlds. That was how they had found the Doomed Star Sea.

For thousands of years after that, countless cultivators who had committed heinous crimes and sects that hadn’t been considered to be legitimate had entered the Doomed Star Sea to take refuge.

Later on, some rebellious outsiders from the Spirit World had also come to the Doomed Star Sea.

Over time, the Doomed Star Sea had become a place where evil beings and crooked forces gathered. With its tough environment, the closer it was to the Void World, the more dangerous it became.

Nie Tian’s father was named Qin Yao.

Before he had entered the Doomed Star Sea, the situation in the Doomed Star Sea had been very complicated, with many experts occupying different areas and fighting each other year-round.

The battles in the Doomed Star Sea were often fiercer than those in the Mortal World and Spirit World.

After reaching the Doomed Star Sea, Qin Yao had become stronger and stronger. Through numerous bloody battles, he had climbed to the top and brought together all the vicious forces in the Doomed Star Sea.

Jiang Qinghuang’s father, Dylan of the Ancientbeasts, had been one of the overlords in the Doomed Star Sea. Nonetheless, he had bowed down to him eventually.

Right now, the Doomed Star Sea had six experts who were either late tenth grade grand monarchs like Dylan or at the late God domain.

As for early and middle tenth grade grand monarchs and human Qi warriors who were at the early and middle God domain, their numbers were naturally much greater.

This was because Qin Yao had begun to organize and plan large-scale battles against the three outsider races of the Void World after he had risen to power in the Doomed Star Sea.

Previously, the forces in the Doomed Star Sea hadn’t been able to put up a fight facing the suppression and invasion of the three outsider races of the Void World.

When the three outsider races of the Void World had entered the Doomed Star Sea, their intention had always been to cross into the Mortal World.

Especially after the Tree of Life had used its tremendous power to isolate the Silent Star Sea, the Void World could only target the Doomed Star Sea.

However, the Doomed Star Sea had turned out to be full of danger. The three outsider races of the Void World had failed to get anything from it or wipe out those from the Spirit World and Mortal World.

After his arrival, Qin Yao had quickly united the forces in the Doomed Star Sea, and organized battles against the three outsider races of the Void World.

Because Qin Yao and the others were familiar with the Doomed Star Sea, they had had a slight advantage when fighting against the three outsider races. Besides, if they couldn’t defeat the other side, they would just run.

While they had fought and escaped, many years had passed. However, the three outsider races still hadn’t taken down the Doomed Star Sea and marched into the Mortal World.

In contrast, Qin Yao’s force had gradually grown stronger, and had vaguely gained enough power to compete with the three outsider races.

This was largely because there were rare materials and resources in the Doomed Star Sea and the Void World that were unavailable in the Mortal World or Spirit World.

It was very difficult for outsiders to enter the Doomed Star Sea, but the crooked forces in the Doomed Star Sea were capable of entering the Mortal World and Spirit World as long as they remained hidden.

Dylan of the Ancientspirits who carried the phoenix bloodline, for example, could easily go to the Spirit World through the spatial passages between the Mortal World and the Spirit World.

One could find a wide variety of priceless treasures that were hard to find across the three worlds. Even Soul-cleansing Origin Elixir wasn’t rare in the Doomed Star Sea.

As a result, many outsiders with low bloodline grades and Qi warriors with low cultivation bases  were likely to make rapid advances after entering the Doomed Star Sea.

In addition, the countless battles they had fought against the three outsider races of the Void World for years had inspired and allowed many to become powerful experts.

However, those in the Doomed Star Sea had also suffered horrifying casualties.

Powerful experts could survive in the poor environment of the Doomed Star Sea, but the weak were prone to accidents and died easily. It was even harder for newly-born human children to survive in the Doomed Star Sea before they became Qi warriors.

Hence, breeding hybrids had become a new path.

Back when he had been in the Ancient Fragmentary Star Palace of the Mortal World, Qin Yao had been the advocate and enforcer of the new hybrid system.

However, he had failed too many times and made a big mistake in his early trials. The Ancient Fragmentary Star Palace had been so furious that they had driven him out.

The hybrid road that he had studied had failed to carry forward in the Ancient Fragmentary Star Palace and the Mortal World. However, after he had come to the Doomed Star Sea, his hybrid road had succeeded and had been regarded as a miracle by all the experts.

Therefore, he had won the title of “Creator.”

This so-called title meant that he had created a new system of beings that could cultivate both their bloodlines and spiritual seas.

As a large number of hybrids had been born in the Doomed Star Sea, and more and more people had begun to cultivate bloodlines as well as spiritual seas, those in the Doomed Star Sea had started to say that a new age was coming.

Feng Beiluo told Nie Tian that almost all of their early battles against the three outsider races had taken place in the Doomed Star Sea, because they had been more familiar with the Doomed Star Sea than the three outsider races.

Only the top experts, such as Nie Tian’s father and Jiang Qinghuang’s father, had ventured into the Void World occasionally, showing up in various forbidden lands of the Void World in search of priceless treasures unique to the Void World.

That was because the overall strength of the Doomed Star Sea was much weaker than that of the three outsider races in the Void World.

The top ten grand monarchs of the Void World were all late tenth grade grand monarchs.

There were also late tenth grade grand monarchs like Grand Monarch Soul Condenser who couldn’t even make the top ten.

Apart from Qin Yao, there were only six late tenth grade grand monarchs and late God domain experts in the Doomed Star Sea

If they had been in the Mortal World, this kind of power would have surpassed any of the four great ancient sects’ strength, but if they wanted to fight the three outsider races in the Void World, it was still not enough.

Hence, most of the time they wouldn’t leave the Doomed Star Sea. They only stayed to fight the three outsider races by virtue of their familiarity with the Doomed Star Sea.

Over the years, many experts had been killed by the three outsider races of the Void World, but had gradually been supplemented by the new crooked forces from the Mortal World and the Spirit World, so that they could always maintain their fighting strength, accumulate power and become stronger and stronger.

“A while ago, the Void World made up their minds to gather the powers of the three outsider races and even instigate small races like the Lightspirits, Seaspirits, and Moonspirits to swarm into the Doomed Star Sea. After they started a full-frontal war with us, we couldn’t resist, and were forced to retreat from battles.

“Several of our strongholds were found and suffered heavy losses.

“We had no choice but to go to the Shatter Battlefield to wake up the Chaos Behemoth, hoping to turn the tables with the help of its chaos power.

“However...” Feng Beiluo sighed with mixed emotions.

His spirits suddenly rose again as he added, “The fact that you dealt them a heavy blow in the Mortal World and killed Grand Monarch Ash Bone and forced Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory to flee from the Spirit World was an inspiration to us!

“While we were in a bad situation, you won battle after battle in the Mortal World and Spirit World. In addition to your identity, your name has already spread all over the Doomed Star Sea without your noticing it.”

As the two talked, Pei Qiqi said nothing and just listened.

“What is the relationship between the Doomed Star Sea and the Voidspirits?” she asked suddenly.

“We’re partners,” Feng Beiluo answered. “Each side takes what it needs because we share a common enemy.”

Soon, his eyes brightened and he pointed to a dazzling phoenix that appeared in its true form in the distance. “Lord Dylan!”
