Somewhere in the House of God Ordainment....
Months were spent in rest and recovery. At the same time, massive amounts of resources were sent into the Cruiser of Civilization.
Yang Qi had purchased millions and millions of godstones’ worth of items from the Nine Dragons Court and the Sumeru Temple, then sent the best of it to his people in the House of God Ordainment.
They now had immense hordes of treasures, and actually didn’t have enough geniuses to spend it on.
Unfortunately, Yang Qi still didn’t know of any way to get back to the impure lands. If he could summon all of his people from the Sage Monarch Society there, he would have so many Ascendants in his forces that the House of God Ordainment would become a truly formidable organization.
On the upside, the Cruiser of Civilization could use the resources to create thrall troops and provide some help to his current disciples. The rest, he kept in storage, for use later when Eternal Millennium’s martial-god soldier-kings were finished.
Although the martial-god soldier-kings were formidable, Yang Qi had learned about some of their weaknesses from the crown prince.
There were also things he knew based on his experience with angels. Thrall troops could be powerful, but angels were the ultimate soldiers. There was simply no way the martial-god soldier-kings could match up to them, much less surpass them. Unfortunately, Yang Qi didn’t know how to create angels the way they had existed in ancient times.
Forgetting about angels, the Cruiser of Civilization could create morphling kings, which were in no way inferior to martial-god soldier-kings.
Unfortunately, Yang Qi couldn’t create morphling kings yet. He needed to push the Cruiser of Civilization to a higher state of functionality. Once he was a peak Paramount God with peak Unbounded will convergence, and had access to even more abundant resources, he would be able to.
After all, each morphling king would be as strong as an Unbounded expert.
There was no way the martial-god soldier-kings would be that strong. At most, they could reach the Perfect God level, and get close to being as strong as Unbounded experts.
In a massive god kingdom in the Cruiser of Civilization, Jadefall, Yang Zhan, the Shepherd, and many of Yang Qi’s other friends and family were gathered on a golden platform, looking out at a host of enormous pods. There were so many of them they were impossible to count. These were the vivicreation systems.
Beneath each pod was a pool of liquid filled with crackling lightning. Strangely, this lightning wasn’t the usual silver color, but rather as red as blood. In fact, it somewhat resembled wriggling blood vessels.
“These are the vivicreation pods used to create the morphling kings,” Proud World said. “Is it really possible to create morphlings as powerful as Unbounded experts?”
“There’s one way to find out,” Jadefall said. “Although we can’t create the highest level morphling kings right now, at least we can make something that surpasses the Perfect God level. Call them morphling princes, if you will. Shepherd. Brahma. What do you think? Have you made all the proper adjustments to the various materials we need?”
“Don’t worry, Jadefall,” the Shepherd said. “Over the past few years, Yang Qi has sent immense resources to us from the Deva Dynasty. There’s no way we could use them all even if we tried. We have a huge stockpile built up here in the Cruiser of Civilization. Maybe we can't make morphling kings, but we can at least create a prototype. I'm also curious to see what level these morphling princes will be. And what will their godhood be like?”
“Prepare the materials,” said Yang Manifestation, who was none other than the former Sectlord Will Manifestation. “Yang Memory, start funneling the resources into the vivicreation tanks!”
A huge channel appeared, through which flowed a host of items including gems, flesh, blood, spirit medicine, medicinal pills, ores, souls, vital energy, and the like.
They were all rare items in the god world.
In addition, massive amounts of power also rumbled forth.
These were the ingredients that would go into creating a morphling king, and as they poured into the lightning-filled vivicreation tanks, they crumbled and melted into the liquid.
“Activate the vivicreation lightning!” Jadefall said, hitting a series of buttons to activate some of the functions of the Cruiser of Civilization.
Afterward, she turned to the people present and said, “Yang Qi is going to the Bastille of the One God, so all of you need to be ready. The Deva Dynasty, Nine Dragons Court, and Sumeru Temple are all going to target him at some point. Given the current level of his cultivation base, it’s going to be difficult for him to hold his own. In order to have a fighting chance, he needs some powerful thrall troops. This prototype morphling king, or morphling prince if you will, is what he plans on using to deal with Eternal Millennium. He wants to take his martial-god soldier-kings. If he uses the God Legion Seal to combine them with the secret reserve power of the House of God Ordainment, then throws in aspects of angel creation and his enlightenment of the True Devil’s techniques, he’ll create an extremely powerful weapon that will surpass even ancient angels.”
“What?” Yang Memory said. “Yang Qi wants to make thrall troops that will surpass ancient angels?”
Ancient angels were supremely powerful entities that could command great daos, subvert reality, and overcome any opponent.
“Yang Qi has a new idea,” Jadefall explained. “Because he has the God Legion Seal, he has the full legacy of the Sovereign Lord. With the sheepskin scroll and the Mahātmā Jade, he has the legacy of the True Devil. He also has King Immortal-Slayer's legacy medallions and all of the various legacies of the seventy-two monarchs. In addition, he knows the secrets of the Great Necropolis, and has cultivated the techniques of the purrling. Using all of those, he created his own unique Sage Monarch Grand Magic, which, although not complete, is more than enough to create his own thralls. In a moment, we’ll have a chance to see exactly how it works.”
Even as the words left her mouth, an immense will weighed down in the area. It was none other than the will of Yang Qi’s true self.
“Well, Yang Qi?” Yang Zhan asked. “Is your plan going as intended? You’re in a very dangerous situation there, what with Patriarch Deva keeping such a close eye on you. And he has his eyes on the purrling as well.”
“Don’t worry, Father,” Yang Qi replied, waving his hand dismissively. “Patriarch Deva can't do anything to me. That said, if he joined the Nine Dragons Court and Sumeru Temple to oppose me, I would have a hard time coming out of it alive. And if word leaked about my God Legion Seal, it would make things worse. That's why I've changed plans and am going to try to take out Eternal Millennium.
“I'd originally planned to stay in the Deva Dynasty for a bit longer. By absorbing more of its destiny, I could help the martial-god soldier-kings reach a state of completion, then kill the crown prince. Afterward, I was going to conquer the Eternal-Life God-Dynasty and Nacrelight Sageland, for use as a tool against Patriarch Deva and the Proud Clan. But now I don’t have time for all that. I need to deal with the Bastille of the One God first.”
“Oh, right,” Yang Zhan said. “Have you gotten any more good information about the Proud Clan?”
“The Proud Clan is very secretive. The information available in the Eternal-Life God-Dynasty, and even in the Deva Dynasty, doesn’t actually provide any concrete details about their headquarters. They just have too many branches set up in different parts of the god world. But considering they’ve imprisoned King Immortal-Slayer, it means they’re my top enemy. And I can’t afford to underestimate them.”
“I used to think the House of God Ordainment was large,” said the Shepherd. “But then my cultivation base improved, and I learned of the Eternal-Life God-Dynasty and the Nacrelight Sageland. Just when I thought they were the truly colossal organizations, I found out about the Deva Dynasty, Nine Dragons Court, and Sumeru Temple. Do you think there are organizations even more powerful out there?”
“Of course there are,” said Brahma. “Based on my experience in ancient times, I can tell you that the House of God Ordainment is like a backwater village. The Eternal-Life God-Dynasty and Nacrelight Sageland are like small towns, while the Deva Dynasty, Nine Dragons Court, and Sumeru Temple are like large towns. There are definitely more powerful groups than them.”
“That's right,” Yang Qi said. “And although some of the God-Lords of ancient times vanished, some still exist. Forgetting King Immortal-Slayer, the most powerful person I've encountered in the god world so far is Patriarch Deva, who’s a late Paramount God with late Unbounded will convergence. There are definitely peak Paramount Gods out there with peak Unbounded will. There may even be people who surpass peak Paramount Gods, and are actually half-Annulled. And the organizations attached to such people are the truly powerful ones. Right now, we’re fooling around with the small fries.”
Around then, the materials being sent into the vivicreation tanks caused an immense rumbling sound. At the same time, perfect caliber godstones were being thrown in one after another. Not even the Deva Dynasty could possibly sustain an effort like this.
As the materials were inundated with the blood-colored lightning, a hulking figure took shape, like some sort of ancient devil king arising from primal-chaos.
It was neither humanoid nor mechanical in nature. It was flesh and blood, with thick hair that wriggled like tentacles.
It had elements of humans, devils, and beasts, yet was none of those. It had a human face, a beastly body, and walked on all fours. Its godhood pulsed with power, and when it howled, psychic fluctuations rolled out that could rip space-time to shreds.
“A prototype morphling king,” Jadefall said. “It definitely doesn't have Unbounded will convergence. Cruiser of Civilization, use the power assessment systems to analyze it.”
The photonic computers in the Cruiser of Civilization glowed to life, sending a beam of light to pass over the morphling. A moment later, the computers spoke.
[Beep-beep-beep. Assessment systems recalibrating. Henceforth, Lesser Gods are the standard. Early Lesser Gods have a psychic scale and godhood rating of one. As for this morphling, it has a psychic scale and godhood rating of three hundred thousand!]Previous Chapter Next Chapter
