The Invincible Society didn’t have a lot of members. Including Yang Qi, there were only eighteen. Because of that, the Invincible Dugu had created special communication talismans that could be used to track down other members who were close enough.
The higher-level members were particularly sensitive to the fluctuations of such talismans.
As soon as Sword Seventeen ignited it, Yang Qi could sense an energy swirling out into the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart to locate the other members of the Invincible Society.
As he stood there waiting, he drew on his energy arts to tap into the essence energy of the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart. The ground beneath his feet instantly sank down a bit and sagefire filled the area, turning everything for dozens of kilometers into a vacuum.
In the past, he had been unable to draw on the essence of the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart. But with his Wheel of Fate, it was now possible. In the blink of an eye, he was able to sense the wills of the numerous powerful entities who had created the chart to begin with.
Magical laws, energy arts, and wills swirled back and forth in his mind.
In the blink of an eye, his enlightenment level broke into the fifth order of the Demi-Immortal level. Back in the Sage Monarch planetary system, his clone sensed the change and took a deep breath as he began another breakthrough.
The clone already cultivated three godly-class energy arts, those being the Jade-Emperor Profound-Welkin Exalted-Celestial God-Dao; the Prodigious Proto-Epoch, Invincible War-Steppe; and the Asiryangguk Sauvastika Devil Grand Infernal Energy. The latter was the most recent and had come with the true energy the first assembly chief of the Devil Sauvastika Assembly had built up over hundreds of thousands of years.
With all of that immense power, the immortal clone could, as a Tyrant Demi-Immortal, fight actual heaven-immortals. He could now be considered a truly invincible expert within the mortal world.
About twenty hours passed, during which time Yang Qi focused on his cultivation and gaining enlightenment of the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart itself.
As his Wheel of Fate turned, the God Legion Seal in his forehead shone with a dazzling, golden light, almost as if it wished to break free and escape to the outside world.
‘It seems I'm going to gain enlightenment of the most profound secrets of this place. Before long, I won't need that kid in yellow to get out.’ As his cultivation base grew higher, Yang Qi gained more control over the God Legion Seal. He was also coming to realize that the seal was actually an aspect of his being a Fateless One.
‘One of these days, I'm going to go see who else has God Legion Seals. What other Fateless Ones exist out there?’
All of a sudden, a beastly roar reached his ears from off in the distance, and he opened his eyes. Immediately, he saw dazzling blade nimbuses flying toward him and Sword Seventeen.
He recognized that aura.
“Elder Second Brother!” Sword Seventeen exclaimed. “I knew you were in here somewhere. Where’s Eldest Brother and everyone else?”
Elder Second Brother Book Genius was the very same individual who had initially helped Yang Qi so much with his energy arts. Back then, he had been a Universal Demi-Immortal, with energy arts that made him much stronger than that level. Now, he was surrounded by a mysterious saber energy that seemed to indicate he had acquired an immortal item.
“Sword Seventeen! Junior Eighteenth Brother! I've tried to reach you numerous times since we got into the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart. How come you never responded? I thought maybe you didn’t end up getting inside. Junior Eighteenth Brother, you—” All of a sudden, Elder Second Brother’s jaw dropped. “Your… your cultivation base….”
Elder Second Brother was favored by the heavens, and could dominate countless enemies in combat. He was also remarkably perceptive. After having been in the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart for so long, he had acquired much good fortune, yet it was nothing that could possibly compare to the advancement Yang Qi had made recently. Yang Qi’s mere breathing seemed to stir the dao of heaven, making him seem like someone who could defeat any foe.
Elder Second Brother didn’t even get a sensation like this when in the presence of the Invincible Dugu.
Furthermore, he clearly remembered how weak Yang Qi had been when they first met. In fact, he had been so weak that Elder Second Brother worried about accidentally killing him by exhaling too deeply in his presence.
Swallowing hard, he said, “How… how could someone so strong exist in the mortal world? Junior Eighteenth Brother, what good fortune did you come across?”
Sword Seventeen burst out laughing. “You have no idea what's happened recently, Elder Second Brother. You see, we did get into the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart a while back, but we escaped. Outside, Junior Brother is basically invincible. He killed an elder king, then went on to dismantle the entire Titan Emperor Collegium!”
With that, Sword Seventeen went on to provide a lengthy and detailed account of the things he and Yang Qi had done after leaving the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart. He talked about how they had caused a scene in the Hall of Beheadings and Executions, and described Yang Qi killing the elder king and nailing heads to the entrance of the society. He also touched on the complications with the initiators, the Immortal Army Battlefield, the immortal emissary, the death of the supreme rector, and the establishment of the Sage Monarch Collegium.
It almost sounded like a mythological story.
As Elder Second Brother listened, his eyes grew wider and wider, and when the story was finally over, he said, “Are you serious about this? You actually destroyed the Titan Emperor Collegium?”
“It’s absolutely true,” Yang Qi replied. “We came back here to get the rest of you out. I need your help running the new planetary system, and also expanding into the rest of the mortal world. I don’t have many people I can trust to run things and enforce the new laws. With you Elder Brothers and Sisters to help, I think we can keep things under control. Elder Second Brother, considering the level of your cultivation base, I think you’re in the perfect position to act as the new supreme rector.”
“Junior Eighteenth Brother….” he began, but trailed off, temporarily at a loss for words. “The Titan Emperor Collegium is gone? Really…? Wiped out of existence by a Junior Brother of the Invincible Society…?”
“What’s wrong, Elder Second Brother?” Sword Seventeen said. “Don’t tell me you cared about the Titan Emperor Collegium?”
Elder Second Brother shook his head to clear it. “Cared about it? No. We disciples of the Invincible Society listen only to our Master. Whatever he says, we do.”
“I guess now would be a good time to mention that Master has already ascended,” Sword Seventeen said. “Before he left, he handed over the position of society chief to Junior Eighteenth Brother. Show him the command medallion, Junior Eighteenth Brother.”
“It’s right here,” Yang Qi said, producing the medallion and activating a certain feature inside, which caused a projection of the Invincible Dugu to appear.
“Master!” Elder Second Brother said, dropping to his knees.
“Disciples of the Invincible Society, hear my orders. I, the Invincible Dugu, hereby pass my mantle on to the profoundly auspicious Yang Qi. He will lead the Invincible Society to create a new heaven and earth, and all of his Elder Brothers and Sisters need to help him. You're all consummate geniuses, but as you know, heaven is jealous of such individuals. With Yang Qi to lead you, your path will be smooth and you will overcome the countless tribulations to come. Having left this message behind, I will ascend. We'll reunite in the immortal world.” With that, the projected image faded away.
Getting back to his feet, Elder Second Brother looked over at Yang Qi, his eyes shining brightly. “Junior Brother, you’re the new society chief. From here on out, we’ll follow you, no matter what. Your word is our command.”
“Excellent,” Yang Qi said. “Don't worry, I won’t let any of you down.”
“By the way, Elder Second Brother,” Sword Seventeen said, “how come you're the only one who responded to my call? Where’s Eldest Brother and everyone else? I could sense their presence when I sent out the message.”
“Don’t worry. Eldest Brother is here in the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart, and he rallied all the other Junior Brothers and Sisters. Working together, we acquired a lot of impressive stuff. For example, this immortal saber of mine is called the Dragon-God General-Beheading Saber, and it's a royal-grade immortal item. It surpasses anything that exists in the Titan Emperor Collegium. Or should I say the old Titan Emperor Collegium. Now that I've fused with it, it's become my animadestiny saber energy, and I can use it to easily cut down half-Demolishers. Right now, Eldest Brother is leading everyone else to try to acquire an actual god item! If we succeed, we’ll all advance by leaps and bounds!”
“God item!?” Yang Qi said, his eyes widening. He immediately thought of the jade flute he had acquired from Ascendant Beheader, an item left behind by an ancient god. It wasn’t an actual god item, but it was imbued with the aura of a god-spirit. But even just having been used by a god-spirit made that item incredible.
As for true god items, they were things that were actually created by members of the ancient legion of gods, which they expended blood, sweat, and tears to fill with godly laws.
“Yes,” replied Elder Second Brother. “It's a god item that people say was used by one of King Immortal-Slayer’s sworn brothers to fight one of the ancient god-spirits. It's damaged, but it's still enough to shake the nine heavens and ten earths, and devastate hosts of immortals and devils. It’s an enormous mirror that currently isn’t owned by anyone. Unfortunately, we're having trouble taking it. Eldest Brother has spent months trying to refine it with true flame, but nothing seems effective in diminishing its power. You got here just in time, Junior Eighteenth Brother. With your divine abilities and energy arts, maybe you can help take control of it. With that god item, we could definitely get out of this place.”
“A god item in the form of a mirror?” Yang Qi nodded. “Alright, let’s go take a look. Our Invincible Society is like a family, and we don't want something that amazing to fall into the hands of an outsider! With that god item, my plans for my planetary system will be even easier to carry out.”
“Alright, Junior Eighteenth Brother. Let’s go. I’ll lead the way!”
Elder Second Brother flew up into the air.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
