Yang Qi was still in a very dangerous position.
Although he was in a lifeless and destructionless state, he couldn’t stay there forever. And once he was back to normal, the ten magisters would easily possess him.
However, he had no other choice than to hold on and wait for the right opportunity to present itself.
General Samman was incapable of doing anything, because of the presence of the ten wills. In fact, because of the powerful wills—and the two God Legion Seals—the surrounding fragment of the Cruiser of Civilization was rendered absolutely motionless.
[Beep-beep-beep. Beep-beep-beep. Warning. Warning. Power surge has created a lockdown effect. Photonic computers… cannot function.]
There were other future warriors on board, but they were also rendered immobile by the conflict between the ten streams of will and the God Legion Seal.
Everything was still.
At the moment, Yang Qi appeared to be in extreme danger. The ten streams of will were getting stronger and stronger, relentlessly gaining the advantage in the conflict.
Another factor was that the wills of the ten magisters had come via the seed of truth. If they were defeated, the magisters wouldn’t be hurt at all. In contrast, Yang Qi was putting his true body on the line. If he perished, he would cease to exist. He didn’t have the luxury of repeated attempts at victory; he only had one chance.
The ten magisters continued forcing their way forward and Yang Qi continued suffering setback after setback. The golden glow of the God Legion Seal was slowly shrinking down as the glow of attack from the ten magisters grew stronger. Yang Qi’s face on the golden imp was also beginning to fade away, indicating that he was losing control.
Suddenly, mad cackling filled the entire Cruiser of Civilization and someone new appeared. It was Young Master Leaf! And he was flanked by the other seventy-one patriarchs!
They were in some sort of ancient and powerful formation that had allowed them to break into the Cruiser of Civilization.
Young Master Leaf stood tall and straight like an emperor, and he had seventy-two halos shining behind his head, each of which contained a tiny person. In the centermost halo was his own animadestiny nascent divinity, and in the other seventy-one were those belonging to the other seventy-one patriarchs.
Apparently, he had turned the other seventy-one patriarchs into a defensive barrier of halos. In addition, there was an umbrella-shaped cloud of violet that rose above his head, thrumming with explosive power that could conquer everything.
It was the Tusita Heaven Treasured Parasol, formed from the essence of the Tusita Heaven itself, which could ward off all energy arts and all enemies.
Young Master Leaf’s cultivation base had reached a mysterious and unpredictable level, and he now looked just as majestic as the old King Immortal-Slayer had when he trampled countless immortal worlds. He was completely beyond the compare of any ordinary cultivator, even majestic demigod old-timers.
Leaf Dao-Denier looked down at Yang Qi and Samman and could see that they were locked in a deadly stalemate. “You two are taking each other down! I bet you never thought you would get your comeuppance like this, did you, Yang Qi!?”
“The future world actually used the seed of truth from the ten magisters to try to take on a God Legion Seal. Sadly for you people, the person who’s going to benefit here is me! I'm going to assimilate all of you! Immortal-slaying legacy medallions!” Two legacy medallions appeared, which he shoved into a central spell formation of the Cruiser of Civilization. Then he simply walked over to Yang Qi and grabbed the other four legacy medallions.
In the blink of an eye, he became the owner of seven of King Immortal-Slayer's legacy medallions.
The moment they touched each other, a projection of the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart appeared amidst sweeping winds and tempests. Next, Young Master Leaf exhaled a stream of flame onto the medallions as he tried to fuse them. At first, Yang Qi’s four medallions trembled as though they would refuse, but as the flames grew in intensity, they eventually submitted.
As the seven medallions combined, Leaf Dao-Denier seemed to grow larger and stronger, as if he were approaching a peak limit of power. His aura even began thrumming with eternal deathlessness, as though he might soon reach the level of the legion of gods.
“The God Legion Seal will be mine, too! And I’ll kill and assimilate all ten of you magisters! As for you, Yang Qi, you defeated me over and over with all of your crafty plots and machinations, but you’re going to be mine. I bet you thought that would never happen!”
Pulsing with the might of seven of King Immortal-Slayer's legacy medallions, Leaf Dao-Denier loomed over Yang Qi and General Samman. Fire erupted from both of his hands as he prepared to assimilate both of them.
“I can’t believe you would dare try to screw us over, boy!”
“We're the ten magisters of the future world! How could you possibly take advantage of us?”
“Kill him! This brat is trying to assimilate us! Fight back!”
“Turn a portion of our power on him! Slaughter him!”
“Hit him with some divine will, even if we have to waste some vital energy. This brat has invincible destiny, and the legacy of a thirty-third ranked immortal world! He’s going to be the ruler of an entire immortal world and is clearly only a step away from being on the same level as the legion of gods!”
“Don’t let him succeed! He’ll ruin all of our plans!”
The wills of the ten magisters seemed just on the verge of breaking into Yang Qi’s sea of consciousness. Right in that moment, Leaf Dao-Denier arrived and was trying to scoop all of them up into the same net. Considering he had seven of King Immortal-Slayer's legacy medallions, he could draw unimaginable levels of power from the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart to help him do it.
The magisters knew that they were now in a very dangerous situation.
If they lost, and their scraps of will were destroyed, it wouldn’t be any significant loss on their part. But then Leaf Dao-Denier would get the God Legion Seal and all of those legacy medallions. Overall, it would be a catastrophe for the future world. He was obviously no less of a threat than Yang Qi. He was a ninth division Chaos God, and a demigod at that. It was entirely likely that he would achieve godly ascension, assuming he came across the right opportunity.
“Attack!” Five of the ten streams of will shifted to deal with Young Master Leaf, heading straight toward his sea of consciousness.
A projection of the mighty King Immortal-Slayer appeared behind Young Master Leaf. Simultaneously, the seventy-one patriarchs were deep in meditation, causing seventy-one projections of themselves to appear. It was very reminiscent of the scene from years past when King Immortal-Slayer fought the Sovereign Lord himself.
The wills of the five magisters were instantly shoved backward.
“Die! All of you, just die!” Leaf Dao-Denier shouted exultantly. He knew he had the upper hand here. In moments, he would have the seed of truth with the wills of ten magisters, seven legacy medallions, the God Legion Seal, Yang Qi’s cultivation base, and two fragments of the Cruiser of Civilization.
His session of seclusion had not been seen out to completion.
He’d received messages from the seventy-one patriarchs that a fragment of the Cruiser of Civilization had been spotted in the primal-chaos debris outside of the Tusita Heaven. He hurried over in formation with the other seventy-one patriarchs, and when he saw what was playing out, he knew his big chance had arrived.
It was the kind of opportunity that, once missed, might never reappear.
As for the ten magisters, they had worked hard on their plan to get the God Legion Seal, so there was no way they would just give up at this point.
Thankfully, some of the pressure was now off of Yang Qi.
“Die!” Young Master Leaf howled madly. “Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart, open up. Legacy medallions, give me power!”
The Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart swallowed up the Cruiser of Civilization. At the same time, Leaf Dao-Denier’s power grew as he was blessed by the power of monarchs. Simultaneously, the seventy-one patriarchs grew stronger, to the point where they were approaching new breakthroughs.
“Legacy medallions… reach out to the other weapons in the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart. Bring them here to bolster my seventy-one brethren! Make us stronger!”
The seven legacy medallions began shining with blinding light.
Instantly, countless streaks of light could be seen flying out of the depths of the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart. There were sage swords, heavenly palaces, suits of armor, spears…. All sorts of things flew into the hands of the seventy-one patriarchs.
They were items left behind by King Immortal-Slayer and his seventy-one brethren, and existed in sets. Now that Young Master Leaf had seven of King Immortal-Slayer’s legacy medallions, he could call out to these items much easier.
Ordinary search methods would have taken millions upon millions of years to find all of the items, but now they could be summoned with a breath.
The seventy-one patriarchs instantly began growing stronger, and as they added their might to Leaf Dao-Denier’s, the five wills were crushed even further.
The ten magisters were now furious beyond belief. How could they ever have guessed that Leaf Dao-Denier would come along and ruin their plans?
With no warning whatsoever, a grand will arrived, pierced through the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart, and blessed the wills of the magisters. In the blink of an eye, they began glowing like millions upon millions of suns, illuminating the universe as they launched a counterattack on Young Master Leaf.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
