Majestic and invincible godpower from the God Legion Seal flowed into Dibarra’s mind, forcing the archmonk to become Yang Qi’s servant. He had no choice but to be loyal, and would never defy orders.
As of this moment, Yang Qi had three followers whose godhood rating and psychic scale were at ninety million. That was actually greater than Yang Qi’s own numbers. However, he had his sage monarch magistrates and, when he used them, could unleash a might that would allow him to fight Patriarch Devas and the other late Paramount Gods like him.
And that wasn’t even mentioning how favorable the terrain was for him.
Looking at the three experts kneeling in front of him, Yang Qi knew that he had just achieved a major success. With these people working for him, he could shake the heavens, topple the earth, and bring major transformations to anything and everything.
As of now, it shouldn’t be a problem at all to conquer and unify the Eternal-Life God-Dynasty, Nacrelight Sageland, League of Academies, League of the Devil-Dao, and League of Wretch-Gods.
“Now I need to assimilate all of the angels and soul conglomerations in the Bastille of the One God. And also search for treasure! If I work on my cultivation here for half a year or so, and find that piece of the Mahātmā Jade, I should be able to reach the mid Paramount God level.” Looking at the three experts, he said, “Rise. Go back to your respective sects and start recruiting followers for me. Just say that I escaped into the Bastille of the One God and you lost track of me. I’ll secretly keep in touch and provide whatever help or assistance you need. For now, I’m not quite ready to deal with Patriarch Deva, Patriarch Dragon, and Buddhist Lord Sumeru. And that’s not to mention whatever reserve powers they can call upon. So for now, all we can do is lay the groundwork.”
The Patriarchs of the Deva Dynasty, Sumeru Temple, and Nine Dragons Court were so immensely powerful that even if Yang Qi somehow managed to subjugate them, it would only be after spilling rivers of blood.
So for now, he would just continue to plot against them from the shadows.
After his three new servants returned and began furthering his interests, he would decide what to do next. For the moment, the main thing he wanted to do was handle the House of God Ordainment, Nacrelight Sageland, and Eternal-Life God-Dynasty. After he took them over and seized their destiny, he would decide how to take over the Deva Dynasty, Nine Dragons Court, and Sumeru Temple.
If nothing else, Yang Qi was now confident that he would eventually reach the late Paramount God level.
And even though Patriarch Deva was also in that level, Yang Qi had monarch godhood. So when he got to that point, he could slaughter a hundred Patriarch Devas if he wanted to.
“You may leave now!” Yang Qi said.
The three experts turned and left.
Before long, they were reconvening with their own people.
“How did it go, Imperial Uncle?” Grand Prince Yi said.
“We're leaving,” the imperial uncle ordered. “Call everyone together so we can meet back up with Buddha Testimony and Dibarra.”
The people from the Deva Dynasty naturally followed his orders without question. Meanwhile, Buddha Testimony and Dibarra had gone to meet up with their respective groups.
“What happened, exalted Buddha Testimony?” Buddha Exterminator asked. “Why didn't you capture that Mister Second?”
“Watch your mouth!” Buddha Lawtongue snapped. “The exalted Buddha Testimony is in charge here!”
“Exalted Dibarra, did that Mister Second get away?” one of the senior monks asked.
“Stop asking so many questions. The time has come to meet back up with the Deva Dynasty and Nine Dragons Court.” Dibarra didn’t dare to say anything further, as his thoughts were being administered by Yang Qi. Although he didn't particularly want to lead all of his people into a trap, he had no choice in the matter.
Before long, the groups from the three sects had gathered in a rather large palace hall.
There, a pure land appeared, encompassing everything around it. At the same time, Buddha Testimony, Dibarra, and the imperial uncle all unleashed streams of energy that turned into a huge net and settled over everyone present.
“Imperial Uncle... you!”
Grand Prince Yi was so shocked that he couldn’t react, and within moments, was completely sealed.
“Calm down,” a voice said. “Buddha Testimony, Dibarra, and the imperial uncle have all acknowledged allegiance to me.” Yang Qi floated onto the scene with a smile on his face, flanked by row upon row of sage monarch magistrates, the Sovereign Lord’s Holy and Far-Reaching Consummate Omnicurse already at work.
The gathered forces of the Nine Dragons Court, Deva Dynasty, and Sumeru Temple all erupted into furious shouting.
“What’s going on here!?”
“What are you up to, Mister Second!?”
“Nothing much. Why don’t the three of you explain?” With a wave of his hand, he caused power to surge and the God Legion Paradise to slowly start shrinking down.
“Mister Second is an almighty being from the ancient past,” explained Dibarra. “He’s invincible, here in the Bastille of the One God, and as a result, subjugated the three of us. So all of you need to fall in line. Be baptized, and acknowledge allegiance to him. Together, we will found a new era in which Mister Second rules the Deva Dynasty, Sumeru Temple, and Nine Dragons Court.”
“Never!” shouted an old monk. “Dibarra, you’re supposed to be the next patriarch! How could you betray the Sumeru Temple like this? What exactly are you thinking?”
“Enough jabbering,” Yang Qi said. “Start the baptism!” Putting his palms together as if in prayer, he sent the power of the God Legion Seal shooting out, causing boundless golden light to wash over everyone present.
Bam. Bam. Bam. Bam! Bam!!
Howls of rage could be heard, intermixed with pleas for mercy. Many people trembled violently, and some even passed out as dramatic transformations occurred.
Yang Qi ignored it all, choosing to focus on the God Legion Seal instead. There, throne after throne rose up, one for every person present.
A flow of destiny entered Yang Qi as everyone there was forced to be loyal to him. And considering how powerful these people were, Yang Qi could tell that he already controlled about a third of the respective destinies of the Deva Dynasty, Sumeru Temple, and Nine Dragons Court.
Fiery flows of energy ripped through the God Legion Paradise as unimaginable faith power settled onto Yang Qi.
He had truly experienced an immense success.
‘No wonder!’ Yang Qi thought. ‘No wonder the God Legion Seal can be used to subjugate so many gods. Each one provides a huge amount of destiny, beyond anything I realized before.’
The process took several hours.
When it was finished, the God Legion Paradise vanished and everyone slowly regained their wits, whereupon they exchanged awkward glances. All of their thoughts were now laid bare before Yang Qi, and none of them could resist him.
“We’re all slaves now. Puppets....”
“There’s nothing to be done about it. That was the God Legion Seal!”
“Who is Mister Second, really? If he has the God Legion Seal, doesn’t that mean he's the successor of the Sovereign Lord?”
“Come on, let’s go. We have orders to follow from Mister Second. We need to go back, seize destiny, and serve his interests.”
“We can't defy Mister Second’s orders. Let’s go....”
With that, they turned and left the Bastille of the One God. The trip to the Bastille of the One God had been very difficult, but the return trip wouldn’t be. Yang Qi could easily create a dimensional passageway for them to travel without any obstacles.
‘It's finally quieted down....’
After they were gone, Yang Qi smiled at the thought of his immense gains. Now, he could focus fully on working on his cultivation here in the Bastille of the One God.
‘Oh, right. I ought to set up a spell formation to teleport stuff back to the House of God Ordainment. The vital energy here has a resonance with me, so I can use the God Legion Seal to create a teleportation portal very easily. That way, if anything happens in the House of God Ordainment, I can easily get back without flying there.’
Normally speaking, a teleportation portal linking a place as distant as the Bastille of the One God to the House of God Ordainment would be too expensive to use. Thankfully, Yang Qi had a virtually unending supply of power.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
