To see Houselord God Bastard being the first to bow his head caused Yang Qi to let loose a hearty burst of laughter. Everyone watching knew that the position of league-lord was now set in stone.
Of course, despite his laughter, Yang Qi was still on full guard against the houselord. The man was obviously adapting to the circumstances, and considering that he was publicly apologizing and acting subservient, it meant that Yang Qi couldn’t openly make a move against him. Unfortunately, it only ensured that there would be plenty of plotting and scheming in the future.
Thankfully, the immortal-slaying clone was now in the mid Terrifying level. Not only were his energy arts improved, but he would have even greater control over the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart, making it even easier to keep in control.
With the countless superpower sects that made up the alliance, Yang Qi would have access to immense destiny and so many other resources that he could hardly imagine what was to come. However, one thing was for sure: he had helped the Will Manifestation Heaven Sect to advance dramatically. Going forward, it would be a powerful organization that no one would dare to mess with.
Furthermore, Yang Qi could use his access to the power of destiny to help the energy arts of Jadefall and his other people.
He released some energy arts fluctuations to make sure everyone could tell that he had yet again received a boost in strength now that Houselord God Bastard had submitted.
After seeing what Houselord God Bastard had done, Huangfu Genesis, Mu Renwang, and Su Xin exchanged glances. They knew that if they joined forces, they may be able to come out on top, but Yang Qi was a vicious and merciless character. They had no idea what methods he might use, and the process of fighting him could very well involve further casualties. Considering the losses their organizations had already sustained, they might not be able to recover.
Yang Qi had devastated roughly half of the main forces of their sects. Although they hated him to the bones for that, they had to acknowledge allegiance. Perhaps later they could scheme their way into taking away the position of league-lord, but they obviously couldn’t reveal even a hint that they were thinking such things.
Despite the fact that they didn’t speak such things aloud, Yang Qi knew what they were thinking. However, he chose not to discuss it at the moment, and instead, to keep things amicable.
“Your humble servant Huangfu Genesis would like to invite the league-lord to a formal banquet!”
“We would also like to invite you to a banquet, League-Lord!” Mu Renwang said. “We wish you success throughout all the ages. You’ll definitely unify everything under heaven and be invincible against all enemies!”
Upon seeing all of these experts offering allegiance, the rest of the sects present joined their voices together and said, “We wish you success throughout all the ages. You’ll definitely unify everything under heaven and be invincible against all enemies!”
Yang Qi had all three thousand of the special constitutions, making him both an Inspiring One and a Leading One. The powers of those constitutions, coupled with his Wheel of Fate, caused the destiny of all present to burn brightly as he absorbed it.
In fact, as the Wheel of Fate spun rapidly, it finally began transforming, sending the bright light of fate out from the top of his head. Although no one could see it, it allowed him to see much more deeply into the Great Necropolis.
In that moment, he suddenly came to an even deeper understanding of the secrets of the Great Necropolis.
Casually waving his hand, he said, “It’s always best to let things happen naturally. You've selected me to be the leader of this alliance, and I’ll do my best to live up to the immense responsibility. Next, we must combine the power of all the sects in our alliance to forge a new kingdom. Together, we’ll fight the Executors of the Ancient Road, the Great Necropolis Alliance, and the Fiend-Devil League. As long as we work together, we’ll surely succeed. For now, send out messages calling all organizations to gather together. Although the warding spells protecting Destructionless Castle are strong, they won’t hold against mid Terrifying experts. I’ll soon begin working on a god formation based on numerous daoist techniques I'm aware of. Once it's complete, it will keep us safe. However, it will require a huge number of people to complete, so please select the best among you and send them to the depths of Destructionless Castle, where the work will take place. Everyone else can remain here.”
“Yes sir,” everyone responded. At the moment, no one dared to do anything to defy Yang Qi, especially considering that his first act would be shoring up their defenses to keep them safe.
As soon as the orders were given, people burst into activity. Thousands of the most skilled sect leaders were selected to make the arrangements.
Considering he had long since learned how to command people in the Dao Defense League, Yang Qi easily settled into his new role.
There were already thousands of sect leaders who were already on good terms with the Will Manifestation Heaven Sect. With a wave of his hand, Yang Qi sent them primeval god skills in the form of paper talismans.
“Ladies and gentlemen, these talismans contain powerful primeval god skills. Use them, and you can temporarily become thousands of times stronger, and at the same time, weaken your enemy by thousands of times. When used in battle, they can ensure that no one will possibly be able to stand up to you. With my talismans, you can simply cut down anyone who dares to defy you! I hereby give you the right to execute anyone who breaks the law, although you’re prohibited from tyrannical abuse. We’re now part of a larger alliance, so all old grudges are hereby wiped out. The best example is how the grudge between myself and Houselord God Bastard is now a thing of the past. The same goes for all of you, got it?”
Feeling somewhat shaken, the gathered sect leaders accepted the talismans and went out to take the lead.
“Houselord God Bastard, Mu Renwang, Huangfu Genesis, Su Xin, the five of us are the top experts in the alliance now, so let's join forces and set up the main spell formation.”
“Er...” Su Xin said hesitantly, “shouldn't we have a meeting to talk things over first?”
“If you want a meeting, we can do it right here and now,” he replied coolly. “I'm guessing that you aren’t very happy about how things turned out, and aren’t willing to accept it. But in the end, the circumstances should outweigh our personal desires. The Executors of the Ancient Road aren't just going to let us go about our merry way. Therefore, I want your help to create this formation, and I hope you won’t hold anything back in terms of cultivation base or magical treasures.”
“League-Lord, don’t you have the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart?” Su Xin said. “That was how you defeated us moments ago. With the chart under your control, what need is there for spell formations?”
“What? The Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart?”
Houselord God Bastard and Huangfu Genesis were both visibly stunned. Clearly, they had been unaware that Yang Qi had a trump card of that level.
Yang Qi smiled coolly. He knew full well that Su Xin was trying to undermine him by revealing his trump cards. However, he didn't care. Su Xin was beautiful and clever, but he knew that it would only be a matter of time before he killed her. “The Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart is the last line of defense. Besides, would you people willingly enter the chart if I asked you to?”
“Let’s not make use of the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart for now,” Houselord God Bastard said. He knew full well the potentially catastrophic consequences of what going into the chart could entail. After all, no one below the level of a god could escape from inside.
“What kind of formation did you want to create, League-Lord?” Huangfu Genesis said. “Don’t tell me you have something stronger than Destructionless Castle itself?”
“Destructionless Castle?” Yang Qi said. He snorted coldly. “You think this thing is impressive? It’s more like a toy. The spell formation I intend to create is modeled after the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart, the True-Devil Unspoiled-by-Myriad-Kalpas-and-Tribulations Body, the Strength of the Hell-Crushing Godmammoth, and a variety of other energy arts. Once activated, no form of evil will be able to penetrate it!”
“What? The Strength of the Hell-Crushing Godmammoth?! You know that?”
All of the experts were stunned.
“Don’t tell me that you’re....”
“That’s right, I am,” Yang Qi said proudly. “I'm the bearer of the God Legion Seal, which makes me the mightiest figure in the Immortal Dao Age. I'm on the same level as Proud Heaven. You see, I didn’t even need to resort to using the God Legion Seal to deal with you four. If I had, do you think you would be sitting here talking to me right now?”
“Impossible!” Houselord God Bastard said. “The God Legion Seal and King Immortal-Slayer's legacy medallions are incompatible. How could you use them both?”
“That’s nothing. I cultivate the Unspoiled Body together with the Strength of the Hell-Crushing Godmammoth, which is something no one else has ever succeeded at. Not even in the god world. Furthermore, I've gained enlightenment of the divine abilities of the Great Necropolis. The Great Necropolis will definitely be mine one day. I couldn’t care less about Proud Heaven, the Executors of the Ancient Road, or even the people from the Primeval Age. Sooner or later, everyone will either submit to me, or die.” In order to further crush their spirits, he said, “Mu Renwang, Su Xin, did you really think that getting those eighteen godpower seeds from you was the only way for me to get stronger? Wrong. I would have gotten stronger regardless.”
“You....” Su Xin’s face drained of blood. All of a sudden, everything made sense to her. She thought back to how no one had been able to beat Yang Qi, then thought about how she had been foiled by him at every turn. Now, he was vastly stronger than before, and had defeated everyone who stood in his way. Not even the Woodfern Couple Palace, Genesis Sanctum, and House of God Bastards working together could outdo him. In the past, she had hoped to use him to get rid of her enemies, but now she didn’t dare to do anything to defy him, and instead had to follow his every order.
“Enough talking,” Yang Qi said. “Prepare to begin work. Here’s the formation chart, and the list of ingredients needed from the god world. I'm sure that you have these items in your storehouses, so bring them out immediately.”Previous Chapter Next Chapter
