Chapter 1761 - Complicated Great Age
Even if it was just following at another’s side, not as a servant, but rather as a follower, this was still a choice that Huang would never make!
After all these years, he had advanced powerfully, what kind of people hadn’t he met, what kind of opponents hadn’t he fought? He even dared challenge the other side’s Emperor Clans, fight while covered in blood.
The so-called young masters, who were they? He didn’t acknowledge them at all!
“Youngster, you have to understand that in the wider world there are people more talented than oneself, this world is far more complex than you can imagine. You might think that you have heaven warping talents, now unmatched, right? I can tell you rather confidently that all creatures who emerge from your world, no matter how stunning, on the path of immortality, not a single one was able to claim to be king, all of them will be defeated in the end!”
This individual spoke these words confidently, but it was as if gusts of wind ravaged the earth, frigid air blasting over, making one’s heart tremble.
His words revealed some terrifying information that made one’s soul couldn’t help but tremble.
“Are you talking about Immortal Ancient Great Era?” Shi Hao asked which age it was. He couldn’t accept this at all.
“For Immortal Domain, a great era isn’t all that long. The years are endless, while Immortal Domain is even more endless, the length of existence of some inheritances exceeding your imagination!”
That mysterious individual spoke, voice still extremely calm, but the atmosphere instead became even more heavy.
He replied to Shi Hao’s question pertaining to time, informing him that these powers weren’t groups that appeared suddenly in an era, but had existed forever since far too long ago.
Did those types of inheritances exist? Shi Hao felt ill at ease, feeling his blood rise and fall, as if there were great waves surging. He felt a flame lit within him, wishing to rise up, break out of this realm and overlook the world!
At the same time, he felt some hesitation. The world was vast, the ancient realms great, the amount of time encompassed great, exceeding his imaginations. In the end, if there was turmoil, a great war erupting, in the end, just what kind of freaks would appear?
Shi Hao calmed down. He just felt like everything he had seen and experienced in the Nine Heavens Ten Earths was still just a corner.
“Everyone says that undead knights are ancient, that a single slumber can last millions of years, even a larger half of a great era. However, when compared to Immortal Domain’s inheritances, they actually aren’t that distant, some whose origins came even earlier, some of their past ancestors still alive!”
This mysterious person revealed a truth, telling Shi Hao some things. When the experts of Immortal Domain left, no one since ancient times could face them.
The Nine Heavens Ten Earths, even if they were glorious, previously truly dazzling and magnificent, as eras passed one after another, regardless of whether it was the eras he heard about or prehistoric eras, not a single one that emerged stood a chance in Immortal Domain.
This piece of shocking information left Shi Hao silent for a really really long time.
“However, we do have a common enemy, the greater situation is aimed beyond.” That individual added.
What kind of emotion was he feeling right now? It was hard for Shi Hao to say clearly. He knew that if he traced things upstream, Immortal Domain would simply be unimaginable, some ancient existences’ origins horrifyingly great.
However, they had enemies, they were waiting for something!
Those people, those times, if they were traced back, the two words ‘emperor collapse’ would most likely appear!
Just what kind of grudges, what kind of opposition was there, to cause this type of result? Generations passed one after the next, yet there was no way to dissolve it, just mentioning it would involve an endless ‘great terror’!
“Heh, are there any freaks that are that ancient, living all the way until this age?” Shi Hao’s thoughts wandered, unable to describe what he was feeling right now.
To be alive is to experience joys and sorrows, the vicissitudes of life, all types of gratitudes and grudges. However, compared to these old monsters, all of these things were insignificant, truly not that big of a deal.
What they focused on were truly great things, but they also had catastrophic impact, worlds easily destroyed at every turn!
Things like dividing that highest level stalk of immortal medicine into six parts, separately sealing them into ruined bodies, planting them into different ancient realms, these weren’t just single instances, all of them would produce heaven shocking impacts on this universe!
Shi Hao’s thoughts began to become a bit distracted, thinking of too many things. He sighed. The path ahead might be extremely long, only after withstanding the test of time would he have the qualifications to be involved.
Hot blood surged in his chest, flowing through his body, hard for him to control himself. His emotions were surging. He wanted to go against these powers and rise up, join in the shortest amount of time! At the same time, he released a light sigh, feeling complicated emotions. The path was uneven, the great world dark. Perhaps he was nothing more than an ant that would quickly wither away.
Shi Hao’s impression of this person couldn’t be considered bad, but of course, he wasn’t particularly watching out for him either, yet even so, he spoke about many things.
It was clear that he knew about Desolate Border’s battle, knowing the matter of Shi Hao being afflicted with the Immortal Breaking Curse, about the things that happened.
Even though he bore no malice, he didn’t show any intention of wishing to take action for Shi Hao. For these types of individuals, results are everything, it was extremely clear cut.
He knew Shi Hao was going to be crippled soon anyway, but he didn’t have any intention of helping, because to him, there was no need to do anything for someone who was destined to become ordinary.
For him, the difference between things of value and things without was too defined.
Shi Hao naturally wouldn’t ask this person of anything. The path was his own to take. The so-called Immortal Breaking Curse was already incurable in the eyes of others, at the very least, when a young cultivator like him was afflicted, then he was crippled already. He didn’t want to say too much.
Then, Shi Hao asked and consulted what kind of place this was.
In the end, he received confirmation that this was an extraordinary secret land after all!
There was a path here that needed to be protected. When he looked into the distance, there was an expanse of silence, an abandoned star system, a withered heaven and earth. However, the spiritual essence here was extremely rich.
The spiritual essence was turbulent, at times surging like a sea, at times completely sucked dry.
This place was extremely important. There was an ancient path that was guarded, waiting for something’s return!
Upon closer inspection, Shi Hao understood that this place was already in ruins, star remains in the distance. This was an ancient place, an abandoned ruined world.
Rain Deity, as well as the other creatures from the ancient times had previously arrived here, becoming soldiers to protect this place together.
Comparatively speaking, even though Rain Deity was powerful, he could only serve as a soldier here, not standing out at all. However, Rain Clan’s origins weren’t small, this clan still not considered weak.
After all, rain, winds, and lightning, these natural scenes weren’t trifling matters. In the past, they represented some ancient clans.
It was to the extent where there were some who believed that the reason these natural scenes appeared was because it represented the moods of some ancient clans!
However, in this ruined ancient world, Rain Clan declined, not really any exceptional experts to be seen.
In the end, it was an expanse of ruined cosmos, unknown just how many years ago it was destroyed. It had previously been entirely sealed, isolated from the rest of the world.
From near ancient history until now, those who guarded this place all declined, almost all wiped out.
It was because the essence energy that was released from the passage was like a haze, corroding everything. Meanwhile, the ancient path was reviving itself, an existence destined to cross over.
It could be said that the people who guarded this ruined world were almost all completely wiped out.
Only when Desolate Border’s great battle ended that Immortal Domain sensed something, receiving news about it, did the immortal gates finally open, making contact with some ancient lands, for example this place, thus allowing them to be saved.
Immortal Domain then took action, continuing to seal the passage!
“Turns out it was like this.” Shi Hao nodded. The entire ruined realm’s prosperity and decline was because of a single passage, one could see just how terrifying it was.
“Are there many creatures here?” Shi Hao asked.
“Not many, less than a million, but they are all cultivators.” That mysterious creature replied.
Shi Hao was stunned. This was a world of its own! However, its population in comparison was ridiculously few.
“If you open up those star remains, every inch of earth are crushed bones.” The mysterious individual said.
At this point, Shi Hao didn’t even need to ask much more in detail.
This world was destroyed, practically complete eradication. The reason why the remaining million creatures didn’t die was because the passage was stabilized.
“Wu, a pity. I wanted to introduce you to a certain clan’s inheritor, but you now lost this opportunity of fate.” This creature brought this up again.
“A young master? What rank in Immortal Domain?” Shi Hao didn’t seem too concerned, the corners of his lips curling upwards.
“It is hard to say, possibly a founder reincarnating through another’s body. If that is the case, reaching the top ranks isn’t an issue. If the legends aren’t true, and he is merely himself, then his name might appear in the top ten.” That individual said.
Shi Hao was stunned, truly shocked. He could look down on that so-called young master, but towards a second body reincarnation, that was extremely shocking, making all of his fine hairs stand on end.
If this was this type of monster, once they faced each other, it would be much more troublesome.
“Of course, if you weren’t crippled and weren’t willing to become that young master’s follower, you could also enter one of those ancient inheritances. If you gain their favor, there would also be great opportunities, but it would truly be difficult…” This mysterious individual said.
Shi Hao curled his lips, not feeling like saying anything. Right now, he had ancient scriptures and secret methods, did he even need to bow down before other inheritances?
“Heh, if I use words that are a bit more unpleasant, the methods passed through this world, what is so great about them? They are already methods that bit the dust. As the years pass, the times overlay, this world’s methods, strictly speaking, all came from Immortal Domain. After so many years have elapsed, even Immortal Domain’s cultivation system changed, creating new paths again. What can you bring out to compare to them?!”
These words finally made Shi Hao’s expressions change. He had long had thoughts of establishing his own path, and now, he was startled awake. Immortal Domain might have long created some paths.
However, this only further aroused Shi Hao’s fighting spirit. He wanted to go even further, see just who was stronger and who was weaker.
It wasn’t him being conceited, but rather because he already had all types of plans in mind, and now, he had stepped on his own completely unique path, using his body as the seed. If he continued to perfect it, he believed that he would definitely experience a golden age of harvest.
“This person, can I kill him?” Shi Hao was extremely brazen, asking this question.
“Rain Clan’s people, I am not concerned with them. However, you have to understand that killing a protector does not bring any benefits. In the future, you are going to be crippled, you should watch out for future karma.” That individual said.
Shi Hao was too decisive. The Everlasting Sword Core swept out. Under Rain Deity’s shocked gaze, a sword stabbed into the space between his brows, killing his primordial spirit, blood splashing all over the altar below.
This altar floating in the void was dyed red from blood.
“Is it easy to bring this ruined realm into the eight regions?” Shi Hao asked.
“It is difficult. Only within a specific time and location is there a chance of casting down a void projection, easier for the weak, difficult for the strong. Rain Deity went against the rules, casting his projection without permission, now that it met this conclusion, it can also be considered a type of predetermined fate.” That mysterious creature said. In the end, he left just like this, not paying anything there any more attention.
In the distant skies, there were all types of bright colors, divine rainbows swirling about. That ancient gate was faintly discernible.
Shi Hao didn’t waste any time, turning around to leave. With a chi sound, he pierced through the realm wall, returning to Desolate Region.
Sure enough, when he left that spatial node, it slowly squeezed inwardly, and then collapsed, ultimately completely disappearing!Previous Chapter Next Chapter
