Chapter 1210: The Eight Great Devil Monarchs
“You know about the Origin World too?” Gan Xing looked at Qin Lie in surprise.
Qin Lie nodded slightly. “A little, yes.”
Gan Xing and Qin Lie seemed to be the only two people out of all nine bloodline warriors who knew about the Origin World.
Everyone else was clearly clueless.
“What is an Origin World?” Nan Qi asked seriously.
Yan Feng, Wu Sha and the others turned to Gan Xing for answers.
But Liu Yang… turned to Qin Lie.
“My knowledge may not be complete, so we should let Gan Xing explain first,” Qin Lie said.
Liu Yang turned her attention towards Gan Xing.
“An Origin World is a world that hasn’t manifested its laws of the world or truths yet.” Gan Xing didn’t decline. He started speaking of what he knew about the Origin World.
“We know that there are one hundred and eight levels in the Abyss, but back when it all began, it was said that the Abyss was just a canvas of chaos with nothing in it.”
“Inside this chaos, the most mysterious of explosions occurred and transformed the chaotic space into countless broken realms.”
“All these broken shards of space were Origin Worlds at the very start of their creation. They contained no laws or living beings.”
“An unknown period of time later, laws and truths slowly start to appear in these shards. As a result, the Abyss Devils were born.”
“It’d take another unknown period of time for these shards to complete its evolution and manifest its unique laws in full.”
“Finally, they became the Abyss levels we are now familiar with.”
“One might say that all one hundred and eight levels of the Abyss are transformed from many broken shards of chaos.”
“The place we’re in right now is a broken shard that has remained unchanged to this day for some reason. At the very least, it hasn’t dug into its potential and started developing the laws and energies an Origin World should.”
Strange flames danced in Gan Xing’s eyes as he explained to the crowd.
“The Origin World is a splinter of that ball of chaos many, many years ago, right? If given enough time—say, a couple million years later—it may evolve into a whole new Abyss level, right?” Nan Qi asked thoughtfully.
Gan Xing nodded slowly, “Theoretically so.”
“What’s so strange about an Origin World?” Wu Sha asked curiously
Gan Xing thought for a moment before continuing, “An Origin World is a place where the laws of a world haven’t taken shape yet. This means that it is much easier to penetrate into our bloodline and recognize its secrets and powers! In a fixed world, we wouldn’t be able to perceive them as clearly because the laws of the world are interfering with our senses.”
He paused here and looked at Qin Lie, “So what Qin Lie said earlier is correct. Here, we can cultivate and study the secrets of our bloodline much faster.”
“Here, we can truly unveil the mysteries of our bloodlines and figure out the very first shape and form of all of our bloodline latent abilities!”
Everyone was smiling and feeling excited when they heard this.
“Is there anything else? Are there any other miraculous effects?” Liu Yang prodded further.
“Hmm…” Gan Xing frowned for a moment before he smiled and spread his arms helplessly. “This is all I know about the Origin World. If there’s anything else, I’m not aware.”
“Oh.” Liu Yang looked disappointed.
It was at this moment Nan Qi looked at Qin Lie and asked, “Does your knowledge of the Origin World match Gan Xing’s?”
The crowd slowly focused their attention on Gan Xing.
Gan Xing himself said seriously and sincerely, “You don’t have to worry about my feelings or anything, Qin Lie. You can tell us anything you know. It will be beneficial to all of us if we can understand the Origin World better while we’re here.”
Qin Lie pondered for a moment before nodding. “What you said just now is correct.”
“Is there anything else you’ll like to add?” Gan Xing asked.
“Some, yes.” Qin Lie answered.
The group looked surprised for a second before they sat up primly and seriously.
Before they knew it, Qin Lie’s words were starting to weigh heavier and heavier in their minds.
“As Gan Xing had said earlier, the Origin World is definitely a new world that hasn’t undergone its natural evolution yet. It is a lot more efficient and effective to cultivate and study the secrets of our bloodline here because we’re able to perceive secrets that we normally cannot perceive anywhere else.” Qin Lie thought carefully as he explained in a soft voice.
“However, that is not all an Origin World is.
“If one of us can infuse their knowledge of the laws and their recognition of their own power into an Origin World while it is still evolving…
“The Origin World will shape itself to our will and manifest the natural laws that we know.
“When an Origin World completes its evolution with that person’s power at its foundation, this person—for having successfully imprinting their will and power into an Origin World—will become its ruler. They can easily control all the natural laws and powers that exist in this world.
“In other words… they will have complete control over a whole new Abyss level.”
Qin Lie said solemnly.
The crowd fell silent completely. The only thing that could be heard and seen was their heavy breathing and shockingly bright eyes.
“You mean that the person who successfully imprints their power and bloodline will become a Great Lord of the Abyss? They’ll become ruler of this Abyss level?” Levy screamed, “The ruler of the one hundred and ninth level of the Abyss! Haha, the mere thought of it is exciting already!”
“No, that isn’t all.” Qin Lie shook his head.
The crowd was caught by surprise yet again.
“According to my knowledge, most of the Great Lords of the Abyss have ascended to rank ten through studying an Abyss level and perceiving its core powers and laws after the Abyss level had already been formed,” Qin Lie said.
“What do you mean?” Liu Yang was confused by his explanation.
Qin Lie explained further.
“For example, Extreme Flame Abyss is an Origin World that has completed its evolution. After everything has settled and taken, it started giving birth to Abyss Devils. Most of the Abyss Devils in Extreme Flame Abyss are Flame Demons who are used to its extremely hot climate. What I’m saying is that the Great Lords of Extreme Flame Abyss reached rank ten after the Origin World has taken shape. They cultivate by studying the flame laws of Extreme Flame Abyss, and their goal is to completely master the core laws of Extreme Flame Abyss and become its true ruler.”
“They haven’t succeeded yet, though. If Extreme Flame Abyss truly had come under their control, they would have sunk the entire level to the bottom and join the Eight Purgatories.”
“Those so-called monarchs of the bottom eight levels of the Abyss, the Abyss Purgatories, are Great Lords who have truly fused with their Abyss level and mastered all of its core laws.”
Gan Xing looked shocked. “So, if we can imprint our powers to this Abyss level and take control of it before it takes form, we’ll become the monarch of an entire Abyss level when one day this Origin World evolves. Is that what you’re saying?”
“That’s the gist of it.” Qin Lie nodded. “It sounds easy, but it’s probably not as easy as it sounds.”
“But those are the steps towards becoming ruler of an Abyss level, right?” Gan Xing asked again.
“Mn.” Qin Lie continued, “First, one must imprint their understanding of power to this Origin World. Then, they must grow and evolve alongside it so they could spread their increasingly powerful laws throughout the entire Origin World so it could evolve into a new Abyss level a couple million years later.”
“Of course, there are a lot of things that needs paying attention to. One misstep is all it takes for the person to crumble alongside this Origin World.”
“Long story short, this process is extremely difficult and luck-based.”
“That being said, it’s still much, much easier than fully mastering the core laws of a natural Abyss levels over countless centuries like the monarchs of the bottom eight levels had done.”
“At any rate, there are only two possible ways to merge fully with an Abyss level just like the Devil Monarchs of the Abyss Purgatories.”
“Either they study and master all of the core laws of an evolved Abyss level…”
“Or they imprint their own powers onto an Origin World like this one—this is so that it evolves towards their intended direction—and grow alongside it for several million years.”
“These are the only two ways to control an Abyss level completely and become a so-called Devil Monarch.”
“Combat strength-wise, a Devil Monarch is a rank ten Great Lord of the Abyss.”
“There are only eight Devil Monarchs in total in the entire Abyss. They are the true rulers of Abyss Purgatories.”
“Each Devil Monarch rules over an Abyss level. They are the strongest Great Lords of the Abyss.”Previous Chapter Next Chapter
