Generally speaking, it was impossible for anyone to enter the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart before it opened naturally, even a member of the legion of gods. Only individuals with King Immortal-Slayer's legacy medallions could do so.
In total, there were nine such medallions and it required a minimum of three to open the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart. Obviously, the leader of this group had at least three of them.
This ‘Young Master Leaf’ was extremely attractive and had a profound cultivation base. He was a powerful and important person, otherwise he wouldn’t have so many other young geniuses as his followers. Including Young Master Leaf, there were a total of seventy-two individuals in this group.
And all of them were from the Tusita Heaven!
As a thirty-third ranked immortal world, the Tusita Heaven was considered to be very glorious and prestigious among immortal worlds. Top experts proliferated there, and compared to it, places like the Sage Sword Heaven, Brahman Immortal World, Martial Blood Heaven, and Glorious Treasure Heaven were mere ants.
Not even Yang Qi had ever seen the Tusita Heaven, nor did he know exactly what it was like. The immortal formation he had created to connect to it was merely a channel for power, not a passage for transportation.
“King Immortal-Slayer's legacy medallions are useful,” Young Master Leaf said coolly, “but they’re difficult to acquire and inherently dangerous. Normally, anyone who fuses with them eventually dies a violent death and has their destiny absorbed and sent into the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart to increase the power of King Immortal-Slayer’s will. Then the medallions will seek someone else to attach to. It's a seemingly endless cycle that will eventually end with King Immortal-Slayer being resurrected. But I don’t care about that. I think of it as a challenge! As long as my will can defeat King Immortal-Slayer’s, I can surpass him.”
“That's right, Young Master Leaf,” said one of the other young men. “You’ve long since become famous among the clans of the Tusita Heaven, and your cultivation base is strong enough to subjugate countless planes of existence. Now that we’ve gotten into the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart, there’s going to be plenty of treasure for us seventy-two brothers. We're going to follow the example of the ancient seventy-two brothers, including King Immortal-Slayer, and devastate the legion of gods and challenge the Lord himself!”
This young man had an incredible aura that made it clear that if he faced someone with a similar cultivation base to his own, but who was from a lower immortal world, that person wouldn’t be a match in any way.
That was what happened when one was born in a high-level immortal plane. Individuals from the lower immortal worlds were like peasants, while those from the high-level planes were like nobility. When it came to people from the Tusita Heaven, they were like members of an imperial clan.
“The seventy-two brothers of the past all perished in the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart, and their treasures are still here to be taken. Now that I have three of King Immortal-Slayer's legacy medallions I can start searching for the other pieces, and eventually combine them. It doesn’t matter where the medallions end up; people will find them, combine them, and eventually come to the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart. In fact, I might as well just lay here in wait.”
Young Master Leaf chuckled. “I'm very curious to see who else qualifies to collect these medallions. And yes, the main reason I’ve brought you all with me here is to follow the example set by King Immortal-Slayer. All of you are geniuses with special constitutions. For example, Tusita Master, you’re a Courageous One. Medicine Mortal, you’re a Heavenly Medicine One. Eternal Drum, you’re an Emptyheart One.
“All of the seventy-two brothers had special constitutions as well. King Immortal-Slayer was an Eternal One, and King Heaven-Devourer, a primal-chaos elder-snake, was a Devouring One. King Mourn-Parting was a Resentful One, King Life-Killer was a Life-Killing One, and King Wilds-Horn was a Guarding One. With me as your leader, we’re an unimaginably powerful force. We might be small, and we might not be the most intimidating group from the Tusita Heaven, but if we stick together we’ll eventually crush everything in our path. The Tusita Heaven is huge, but that just makes it a perfect stage for us.”
One of the other young men stepped forward. His skin was bright red and his eyes sparkled with fire, identifying him as a Flamedancing One. “Young Master Leaf, you’re definitely the only person who could have possibly gathered us all together. All of us have unique constitutions and are the obstinate and unruly type who don’t like to work with others. But you managed to unite us. It must be because you have the most powerful of the three thousand constitution types. You’re a Fortuned One, which makes you just as strong as King Immortal-Slayer, who was an Eternal One.”
“You’re right, I am a Fortuned One. And in addition to the Eternal Ones like King Immortal-Slayer, there is a third constitution that exists high above all the others. The Fateless Ones. That said, no such individual has yet appeared in our time. According to the legends, anyone who can acquire the power of a Fateless One will become invincible and will surpass all the other three thousand constitution types. If I can find a Fateless One, I’ll devour him without a second thought! Then I’ll combine all three thousand constitution types, doing what has never been done from ancient times until now and become the leader of the legion of gods!”
Young Master Leaf certainly had a big mouth. As he and his fellows flew through the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart, they continued discussing matters.
“Young Master Leaf, that looks like a city up ahead. It seems quite populous.” Sure enough, there was a plane of existence in front of them in which a large number of experts had gathered.
Some of them were Demi-Immortals from the mortal world, with a few being Demolishers. There were even some Godmyth patriarchs. The Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart opened every ten thousand years, but that was only to let people in. Getting out was another matter, and those who remained stuck inside would often form societies and cultures that resembled immortal worlds.
“Perfect. Wipe them out. The Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart is mine, and these people are useless to me. How dare they steal treasure from my own house!”
This particular plane of existence was roughly as large as an ordinary immortal world and was presided over by a handful of Godmyth patriarchs.
Places like this were common in the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart. After all, over the countless years that the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart had existed, it was impossible to say how many people had entered.
However, this mysterious Young Master Leaf from the Tusita Heaven was obviously not going to tolerate their presence. He viewed the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart as his own personal treasure, every last inch of it.
As far as he was concerned, everyone else in this place was just trash to be cleaned out.
He attacked immediately, unleashing a devastating force that caused some of the Demi-Immortals and Demolishers to explode before it even touched them.
A group of Godmyth patriarchs flew out in response. Facing the group of seventy-two, they said, “Who are you? And why are you attacking us? This plane of existence remains neutral in the affairs of the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart.”
“I'm not interested in talking with scum like this. Kill them all. Don’t leave a single one alive. Other than us, no living thing is permitted to exist in the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart!”
“Yes, Young Master Leaf!”
The other young men charged forward and destroyed the entire plane of existence, killing everyone present—even the Godmyth patriarchs, who didn’t even last a single round of combat with them.
After the time it takes an incense stick to burn, a plane of existence that had been inhabited by billions of cultivators was completely gone.
Young Master Leaf waved his hand, collecting together the countless howling souls of the dead. Looking at them, he shook his head. “What a bunch of despicable souls. How dare they profane the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart! They don't even deserve clean deaths. Be refined!”
Flames burst out of his palms and the souls were eradicated.
“Excellent. Keep clearing this place out. Er, what? Sections of the Mourn-Parting Heaven-Palace?”
In the wreckage of the destroyed world, there was a rancorous energy that Young Master Leaf noticed. Making a grasping gesture, he pulled up a collection of what looked like several hundred small houses. “Perfect! These are three hundred rooms from the Mourn-Parting Heaven-Palace! Murmur Hatred, step forward!”
“Yes sir!” A young man stepped out, pulsing with a rancorous energy that made him seem like he wanted to kill everyone in the world.
“Murmur Hatred, take these halls from the Mourn-Parting Heaven-Palace! You're a Resentful One, just like King Mourn-Parting himself. One of our main goals here in the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart is to equip the seventy-two of us with treasures that conform to our constitutions. Once we’re fully equipped, we can return to the Tusita Heaven stronger than ever before. And then who will dare to underestimate us?”
Young Master Leaf obviously had some high ambitions. “Let’s go. Kill everyone you see. They’re like a cancer that needs to be purged from the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart. How could we possibly allow the treasure and weapons of the seventy-two brothers to fall into the hands of despicable curs like them?”
A reign of carnage had descended on the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart. There would no longer be peace in the place, as countless outposts were attacked and destroyed. Even Godmyth patriarchs were wiped out by Young Master Leaf and his associates. There were also primeval godworm lairs that were destroyed and taken.
Certain experts usually remained hidden in secret locations in the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart, but even they were terrified.
Meanwhile, Yang Qi sensed that something strange was happening.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
Some of you may vaguely remember a cultivation level earlier on in the story that I originally called "Star something-something" but later changed to "Planet something-something." It relates to a broader topic of why there is confusion between stars and planets in Chinese translation sometimes. Check out the details here.
