“If there’s a piece of the Mahātmā Jade in the House of the Invincible, that’s great,” Yang Qi said. “I’ll definitely get it. Jadefall, when I go to the House of the Invincible, I’ll shrink the Cruiser of Civilization down and put it into my God Legion Paradise. That way, you and all my other people can focus on your cultivation. You and the purrling won't even need to show your faces. Considering I don’t have enough sage monarch magistrates at the moment, I need your help to help run the Sage Monarch Society.”
Jadefall nodded. “Alright. It's true that all of us going to the House of the Invincible would probably attract attention. If you and the Second Devil General are the only ones who infiltrate it, things will go much more smoothly.”
They definitely couldn’t get into the House of the Invincible en masse the way they had joined the House of God Ordainment. The House of the Invincible operated much more strictly, so it made much more sense for Yang Qi to slip in and do some reconnoitering first. Once he had a foothold, he could then start his rise to the top.
As for the Second Devil General, he had no desire to hide out in the Cruiser of Civilization, and truth be told, Yang Qi actually wanted to have someone to back him up in the House of the Invincible.
‘I wonder if the House of the Invincible has any close ties to the Proud Clan,’ Yang Qi thought as he left the Bastille of the One God and headed toward the House of the Invincible.
He was leaving the vicinity of the old Eternal-Life God-Dynasty and House of God Ordainment for good. He hadn’t conquered the League of Academies or Nacrelight Sageland, but at this point, he didn’t care. There were better opportunities to be taken advantage of.
Besides, Summer Vastcold, Summer Soundfyre, and Mother Voidwalker were all working on improving their cultivation bases. Eventually, they would be strong enough to simply take over the Nacrelight Sageland on their own. So there wasn’t any reason to be anxious.
Perhaps when it happened, Yang Qi would be able to get some clues about the other Fateless One he had learned of.
Thanks to subjugating the two men and two women from the House of the Invincible, he knew exactly where their headquarters was located. And he had already come up with his infiltration plan. He would have his four agents take him to meet their Master. Then, he and the Second Devil General would pounce on that Master and take him captive. Yang Qi would subsequently subjugate him with the God Legion Seal. Of course, it was a risky plan. If anyone in the House of the Invincible realized what was going on, they would be in great danger.
Thankfully, Yang Qi was hovering right on the brink of a breakthrough. His psychic scale and godhood rating were both at about nine hundred and ninety million, which meant that as soon as he finished assimilating the Everlit Godlamp, he would break through to the peak level.
Yang Qi already knew that his agents had a Master whose cultivation base wasn’t at the peak Paramount God level. He was more on the level of Buddha Thunderjolt, which meant Yang Qi should be able to handle him alone, much less with the help of the Second Devil General.
Once he was in the House of the Invincible, it wouldn’t be a situation of carrying out complicated plots and schemes. He would just identify targets to subjugate and puppetize.
Using the God Legion Seal was the only surefire way to avoid leaving behind clues that could be discovered.
For example, he could use techniques of purification and conversion from the buddhist schools. But that would cause the person to pulse with buddhist fluctuations. And of course, the House of the Invincible would most assuredly have ways of detecting any devil arts that the Second Devil General could provide. Only the God Legion Seal could be used secretly.
Yang Qi and the Second Devil General were currently flying through the void toward the House of the Invincible.
Seeing that Yang Qi was actually moving along rather slowly, the Second Devil General couldn’t help but say, “Boy, those wings of yours are impressive when combined with the Myriad Worlds Greater Teleportation. But unfortunately, you can’t use them to their full potential. How about I take over? Just tell me how to use the Myriad Worlds Greater Teleportation.”
“Alright. Even if I told you how to use the Strength of the Hell-Crushing Godmammoth, it wouldn’t matter.” Sending out some psychic fluctuations, he imparted the Myriad Worlds Greater Teleportation technique to the Second Devil General. Truth be told, he was already at a level in which techniques didn’t matter. What mattered was personal strength and enlightenment, which could lead to one’s own dao.
Proud Heaven had created his Ten Universes, and Yang Qi had generated the Sage Monarch Grand Magic. Later, he would combine that with the Great Necropolis God Art to create something aligned with his own dao.
Because of that, he didn’t mind sharing the Myriad Worlds Greater Teleportation technique with the Second Devil General. The Second Devil General had seen all sorts of techniques in his time, so one random technique wouldn’t make any difference.
The Second Devil General knew how things worked as well, which was why he had casually asked for the technique.
After familiarizing himself with the details, the general nodded. “This technique isn’t bad at all. It can actually save me a lot of effort. Alright, let’s get to the House of the Invincible.”
Drawing on his devilishness, the general took Yang Qi and pierced through millions upon millions of worlds. As Yang Qi watched the greyspaces speed past, he realized he was getting a more overarching view of the god world. All of a sudden, he came to the understanding that it was neither a sphere, nor a pyramid, nor an enormous continent. It was some other profoundly strange shape.
Shortly thereafter, the Second Devil General and Yang Qi caught sight of an enormous continent, filled with hills, mountains, forests, lakes, oceans, streams, rivers, grasslands, deserts, cities and nations. Everything seemed larger than life. For instance, the trees in the forests seemed at least ten times taller than ordinary trees in the god world.
It was the same with the rivers.
Yang Qi almost felt like he was looking at a land made for giants.
The clouds in the sky had cities and palaces on them, and from what he could tell, everything was organized according to a strict ranking system. He couldn’t sense any destiny at all, because it was so incredibly powerful that it surpassed his ability to detect.
The Second Devil General stopped and hovered in the air, and as he looked out at the sprawling continent, he said, “So this is the House of the Invincible. I think I underestimated it. After all these years of growing stronger, I wonder what level this place has reached. The destiny has fully fused with space-time, making it separate from the magical laws of the god world in general.”
“Why can’t I see the destiny at all?” Yang Qi asked. Not even his Lord's Eye was able to reveal any hints of its existence.
“Your cultivation is too low, boy,” the Second Devil General replied. “Here, I’ll share some power with you so you can see.”
Instantly, Yang Qi saw that the entire continent was covered by what appeared to be a dense net. It was destiny, and it was so strong that it would be impossible to escape from once entangled. Thankfully, he and the Second Devil General were outside that net at the moment.
It was incredibly orderly, covering every bit of the land and containing the fate and karma of everyone who lived there.
“Incredible. This place is wrapped up with karma. Look! We’re only on the border of the House of the Invincible, and you can see that the city right down there has a population equal to about a third of the Eternal-Life God-Dynasty. And that place is obviously just a village compared to other places here. The leader is only a Greater God, yet he has a staff of Consummate Gods who don't dare to defy his orders.”
How could Consummate Gods possibly take orders from mere Greater Gods?
It seemed completely impossible, yet it was happening here.
Obviously, that Greater God had been appointed to his position by the House of the Invincible, and because he commanded destiny, people had no choice but to obey him. Whenever the city magistrate spoke, his words caused fluctuations in the magical net of law, forcing the Consummate Gods to listen. Yang Qi was completely taken aback.
Thanks to the information recorded in the Cruiser of Civilization, Yang Qi knew of certain ancient civilizations from the impure lands that didn’t possess any military might. And sometimes, there were government officials who were physically weak, but had authority over life and death. That was power that didn’t stem from strength, but from law, order, and destiny.
It was the same here in the House of the Invincible.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
