Stepping into the Terrifying level was the first major advancement the immortal-slaying clone had experienced since acquiring the eighth legacy medallion and gaining access to the godhood stars.
In the moment of his breakthrough, he focused all of the power of the godhood he had on the psychic scaling systems, using new aspects he had just gained enlightenment of to attack the Wretch God Apostle.
Boundless tribulations swirled about everywhere.
Within the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart, it seemed like doomsday had come, which was a signifying mark of Terrifying will. After all, Terrifying will was the will of gods.
It was only when a person reached the Terrifying level that they could reach the end of the Ancient Road to the Gods and enter the god world alive.
Those with weaker will convergences, such as Destabilizing will, would definitely suffer the fate of death. Even the weakest magical laws of the god world would crush them out of existence.
Of course, being in the Terrifying level didn’t necessarily guarantee that someone would survive in the god world. For example, the magical laws there were so strong that such people might be so weighed down that they would be forced to crawl instead of walk.
According to the rumors, the mid Terrifying level was the true hallmark for the god world. It was only in that level that travel was possible, and one could have a chance of staying alive. And the late Terrifying level was when one could finally begin gathering the power necessary for godly ascension.
Majestic psychic fluctuations filled the immortal-slaying clone’s mind, simultaneously causing heaven-shaking, earth-toppling changes to the interior of the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart. Everything inside was dramatically silent, and the godhood stars shone with dazzling light, making them seem like countless tiny suns. Terrain features popped up everywhere, and the virtual god world expanded, slowly beginning to grow even more true and real.
Roiling psychic power broke through all obstacles, becoming a raging flow that swept out in all directions.
‘The Terrifying level! This is the Terrifying level!? So incredibly domineering!’ The clone shivered as countless impurities were expelled from within him. At the same time, numerous magical treasures appeared. For instance, King Heaven-Devourer’s talismans floated up, becoming a majestic entity that could devour heaven, earth, suns, moons and cosmoses.
Unfortunately, Yang Qi had never been able to release the full might of those talismans. Only after reaching a Terrifying cultivation base could their true potential be unlocked. Now that the clone was in the Terrifying level, his psychic power and true energy had finally conformed to the true meaning of King Heaven-Devourer.
Bursting with more strength than ever, the primal-chaos elder-snake burrowed into Yang Qi’s sea of consciousness, where it opened its mouth to devour the Wretch God Apostle.
“Aiiee! Such incredible power!” The Wretch God Apostle's will had been just on the verge of flying back into his body. If that happened, and his will combined with his true energy, then he could use his secret magics to crush everything around him. Neither the secret magic, the peaklords nor anyone else would have been a match for him. With his nascent divinity trapped in Yang Qi’s sea of consciousness, he was only about ten percent as powerful as he would normally have been.
“King Immortal-Slayer's legacy medallions!”
The Wretch God Apostle struggled, sending out a stream of black flame that resembled a fire dragon to meet King Heaven-Devourer’s talismans. He knew that time was of the essence.
Meanwhile, back in the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart, eight of King Immortal-Slayer's legacy medallions appeared, hovering above the clone’s head. Clicking together, they created a united command medallion, square, in the middle of which was an empty, heart-shaped void. That was where the final medallion would be placed.
Just the eight medallions combined into one caused the immortal-slaying clone to thrum with even more psychic power. Countless god souls cheered excitedly as an immense expression of will appeared behind him, causing the entire Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart to tremble.
Power flowed down from the godhood stars like a waterfall. When they reached the unified command medallion, the clone let loose a long cry that rumbled like thunder.
Lightning bolts crashed, not literal lightning bolts, but bolts of lightning made from pure psychic power. God lightning stabbed all the way into Yang Qi’s sea of consciousness.
In that moment, Yang Qi’s own psychic power was being pushed to incredible heights with the help of the psychic scaling systems. Restraints shattered, and his nascent divinity suddenly gained enlightenment of the River of Civilization. It was as if he had the same view as the Lord of Civilization and could gaze down at the river, and the waves on its surface, which were in fact countless civilizations.
Using the power of the imperial-heaven pre-beginning in his sea of consciousness and the psychic powers of the Lord of Civilization, he began creating his own version of the psychic scaling systems.
Henceforth, his nascent divinity would have its own living psychic scaling systems.
‘I understand the psychic scaling systems. And the Civilization Founding Grand Magic.’ The Lord of Civilization had used the psychic scaling systems to create his Civilization Founding Grand Magic. And using that grand magic to improve the psychic scaling systems was a true boundless dao of gods.
Civilization was an expression of the psyche, and power was the basis of civilization.
That was the ultimate meaning of the psychic scaling systems. Thanks to Yang Qi’s experience in gaining enlightenment of the imperial-heaven pre-beginning systems, his work with the psychic scaling systems went very quickly. And before long, there was a raging River of Civilization flowing within his own nascent divinity.
As he came to understand the Civilization Founding Grand Magic, nothing about the psychic scaling systems remained a mystery to him. Suddenly, a tremor passed through him. Psychic power flowed through his meridians, limbs, bones, and acupoints.
Instantly, he was vastly stronger than before. Now that he had enlightenment of the psychic scaling systems, he could convert his own true energy into psychic power, which was a terrifying thought. Right now, his cultivation base was at a level where he could definitely control the power of fifty tribulations.
Clenching his hand into a fist, he punched the Wretch God Apostle yet again, causing more blood to spray out of his mouth. Then he hit him with his Devil-God Seal, instantly sealing his meridians, sea of energy, and essence.
“Aaaiiiieee!” the Wretch God Apostle’s will screamed as he struggled. However, no matter how he fought, he couldn’t prevent his body from being sealed. And as his energy faded and his essence was damaged, his will began to weaken.
“No! I surrender, boy! We can work together. Really work together! I won’t plot against you!”
“You want to work together now? Sorry, too late!” Yang Qi had not yet reached the Terrifying level, but it was only a matter of time before he succeeded.
Right now, the God Legion Seal, King Heaven-Devourer’s talismans, the systems of the Cruiser of Civilization, the powers of the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart, and the wills of the sectlord and two peaklords, were all converged in his sea of consciousness, crushing down on the Wretch God Apostle.
Truth be told, Yang Qi couldn’t help but admire the Wretch God Apostle for managing to hold out under the assault.
Unfortunately, he was doomed to be defeated.
If the immortal-slaying clone hadn’t broken through to the terrifying level, things might have turned out differently. The Wretch God Apostle was so powerful that he might have been able to eke out a victory. But now there was no way he could survive. The clone’s control of the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart was greater than ever, giving him even more tools to fight with.
With the stronger version of the chart, he could now break through the magical laws of the prison to either send corporeal items in, or allow Yang Qi to slip out. He was in an incredibly domineering position.
As of this moment, not even the most dangerous location could keep him trapped.
Except perhaps the god world.
“Press the attack!” The sectlord and peaklords were pushing their wills to the highest level they could manage.
“Begin the psychic enslavement!” the sectlord barked. “It’s one of the strongest abilities of the psychic scaling systems! Everyone, join forces to unleash psychic enslavement! Enslave the Wretch God Apostle!”
The immortal-slaying clone had used King Heaven-Devourer’s talismans in an attempt to devour the Wretch God Apostle, but the talismans were already starting to crumble.
Even as they collapsed, the clone opened up a vortex into the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart, which erupted with power, dragging the Wretch God Apostle’s will inside.
Instantly, Yang Qi’s sea of consciousness was cleared.
In the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart, though, rumbling like thunder could be heard as the Wretch God Apostle ripped his way out of the talismans, only to see the boundless godhood stars, which caused a tremor of shock to pass through him.
“What is this place?!”
“Congratulations, and welcome to the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart,” the clone said. Behind him were the wills of Yang Qi, the sectlord, and the two peaklords.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
