The Talisman Armament emanated a strange fluctuation while talisman markings flowed around it, and it ceaselessly absorbed the energy of the Golden Spear of Domination.
According to Chen Xi’s deduction, if it continued according to this speed, then it would at least take five years of time to completely absorb the energy within the Golden Spear of Domination.
Chen Xi paid no further attention to this. With a command in his heart, the Divine Fate Dao Ruler floated into appearance. A rain of brilliant and divine light descended, and it emanated a gorgeous glow and surged with auspicious qi.
In next to no time, the rain of light interweaved together and condensed at the center of the jade ruler to form a dazzling little person. The little person sat cross-legged there and chanted scriptures of the Dao in a solemn manner.
In an instant, Chen Xi was able to clearly sense the energy of the Grand Dao, and the entire world had become different.
The Grand Dao was without name or shape. It was hidden within all things in the world, yet it was illusory and difficult to comprehend.
However, through the Divine Fate Dao Ruler, Chen Xi was able to clearly notice the marks of the Grand Dao, and he was able to comprehend their profundities even more thoroughly.
The little person at the center of the ruler was the ‘divine’ that could deduce the Heaven Dao and transform the untraceable into traceable. On the other hand, Chen Xi was able to act together with it and seem as if he’d fused with the heavens, earth, and the Grand Dao.
This made his comprehension even easier, deeper, and thorough than it had been in the past.
It felt like everything complicated and mottled had become simple and clean. It made all profundities and obscurities unable to hide, and they were clearly and fully revealed before him.
This was the profound effect of the Divine Fate Dao Ruler. It could deduce the Grand Dao and reveal its profundities. Even though it wasn’t a combat type treasure, merely this ability alone was something that other divine artifacts couldn’t compare to at all. It could be said to be an unprecedentedly precious treasure.
From this day onward, Chen Xi fell into deep meditation, and he recuperated while he comprehended the Grand Dao in meditation while time swiftly flowed by without him noticing it.
Thee years later, merely three days had passed for the outside world.
On this day, Chen Xi had suddenly opened his eyes from his meditative state, and at practically the exact same moment, Huai Kong’zi’s voice resounded within the Ancient Springtime Realm.
“Three days have passed. All of you can leave now.” At this moment, it wasn’t just Chen Xi who’d awakened, the other disciples within the Ancient Springtime Realm had woken successively from their meditative states as well.
After that, numerous doors appeared in front of them.
This day has finally come. Chen Xi stood up and didn’t hesitate at all to stride through the door, and he instantly vanished on the spot.
The Square of Vie.
When Chen Xi arrived here, the other 29 disciples arrived successively as well.
However, it wasn’t Huai Kong’zi that was waiting for them, and it was a thin, short, and extremely ordinary old man.
Surprisingly, it was the Dao Institute’s Dean, Liu Shenji!
Chen Xi and the others were instantly shocked, and their expressions became solemn.
“Presently, the passageway to the Forgotten Grounds of Chaos has been opened, so come with me.” Liu Shenji glanced at Chen Xi and the others before he immediately determined that their cultivations had recovered to their peak state. So, he immediately stopped hesitating and waved his sleeve lightly.
In an instant, Chen Xi and the others felt the scene before their eyes flash, and then they were uncontrollably enveloped by a copious and irresistible force before they swiftly vanished on the spot.
They couldn’t see or hear anything.
It was like they were sinking through time, yet it seemed like a mere instant as well.
When Chen Xi opened his eyes once more, he immediately noticed that he’d arrived at an extremely unfamiliar region.
This region was extremely silent, vast, deep, and seemingly boundless.
Unlike other regions, the stars here were motionless on the spot, and it seemed extremely strange.
On the other hand, an extremely enormous black colored vortex surprisingly laid across the starry sky very far away in the distance ahead. When looked at from afar, it was like a bloody mouth that could devour a myriad of stars.
However, the strange thing was that the enormous black vortex had fallen into a motionless state now as well, and it seemed extremely terrifying.
“This is Chaos Region.” Liu Shenji had his hands behind his back as he stood in front of them, and he spoke indifferently while gazing at the enormous black vortex in the distance.
Chen Xi and the others were stunned. This is Chaos Region? Why doesn’t it show any signs of chaos at all, and it seems terrifyingly silent instead?
“This place is very dangerous. In the past, even Daolords wouldn’t dare step foot here at all.” Liu Shenji sighed with emotion. “It’s all thanks to the cooperation between the five extremes and the ultimate treasures of our respective sects that the tribulation energy here was suppressed, causing the chaos here to return to calm.”
Only now did Chen Xi and the others come to an understanding. They were clearly aware that the scene they were looking at now wasn’t the true appearance of this region anymore.
At the same time, it caused them to take this expedition even more seriously.
Merely opening up a path towards the Forgotten Grounds of Chaos required the joint forces of the five extremes of the Imperial Region. This clearly showed how dangerous this place was in the past. It was simply like a supreme forbidden area!
“See that passageway?” Liu Shenji pointed at the enormous black colored vortex in the distance as he said, “You’ll be able to arrive at the Forgotten Grounds of Chaos by entering it. According to legend, there are many undiscovered regions scattered throughout it. At the same time, all sorts of danger and killing intent is hidden there as well. All of you must be careful as you explore it.”
At this moment, Chen Xi and the others revealed solemn expressions as they listened, and they didn’t dare allow themselves to be distracted at all.
They knew nothing about the mysterious Forgotten Grounds of Chaos, so if they were able to obtain some guidance from a figure like Liu Shenji, then it would absolutely be beneficial to their exploration of it.
“Most importantly, all of you must be wary of the tribulation energy that restrains the Dao, and you must not allow even a trace of it to taint you. All of you’ve probably heard that the Roc Daolord had perished all those years ago because he’d been inflicted by the tribulation energy that restrains the Dao.” When he spoke up to here, Liu Shenji turned around to look at Chen Xi and the others before he said, “As for what other dangers lie within, even I’m unaware of the answer. All of you have to rely on yourselves to explore and deal with them.”
A strand of pressure instantly appeared within their hearts when they heard this. Since even the Dean of the Dao Institute had spoken in this manner, it clearly showed how mysterious and unknown the Forgotten Grounds of Chaos was.
The unknown usually represented danger!
“After all of you enter the Forgotten Grounds of Chaos, this passageway will collapse completely. However, there’s no need to worry. Our five sects will join forces once more 10 years from now, and we’ll establish a path of return.” Lie Shenji spoke solemnly. “Remember, the time limit is 10 years, and it can be delayed by three years at most. If you’re still unable to return then, then there’s be no hope for you to return to the Ancient God Domain!”
Chen Xi and the others were shocked, and they committed this information to memory.
“There’s no time to lose. All of you can set out now.” Liu Shenji turned around, and then his gaze descended onto the enormous black vortex once more.
“Let’s go!” Leng Xinghun was the first to act. He led the other five disciples of the Sovereign Sect along with him as he flashed over, and he instantly vanished within the depths of the black vortex.
After that, the other powers took action successively.
They’d waited for too long for this opportunity to enter the Forgotten Grounds of Chaos. So, even if it was filled with terrifying and unknown dangers, they refused to hesitate for the sake of establishing a new region and becoming a Region Lord.
It was even to the extent that they were prepared to die!
Perhaps people of the outside world would feel that it wasn’t worth to pay such a huge price!
However, in the opinions of all these cultivators that were about to enter the Forgotten Grounds of Chaos, everything was worth it so long as the breakthrough in their cultivations that they obtained would surpass their predecessors.
“Let’s go.” Chen Xi took a deep breath before he led Gu Yan and Tu Meng to flash towards the distance.
At this point, all 30 disciples had vanished within the black vortex, and then Liu Shenji muttered. “I hope… all of you’ll be able to return safely.”
As soon as he finished speaking, he flicked his sleeve and left.
Not long after Liu Shenji left, the silence in this region was destroyed, and a strand of terrifying and violent chaotic force suddenly effused out.
After that, the stars shook, space was in disorder, and boundless spatial flames, lightning, baleful mist, and rains of blood rumbled through the surroundings and enveloped the entire region.
Once could even faintly hear the horrifying sounds of gods howling with sorrow and the Grand Dao collapsing.
Later on, the enormous black vortex rumbled and exploded into pieces amidst a loud crack, and then it transformed into nothingness.
This region had fallen completely into chaos.
It seemed like a terrifying energy of tribulation was what caused all of this to occur from behind the scenes.
“Looks like they’ve already gone in.” In the starry sky extremely far in the distance, Wu Xuechan, Xue Ling, Xu Tuo, Xuan Ming, and Cai Ya stood there while looking towards the distance, and they clearly witnessed the scene of chaos in the distant region.
“Some little fellows will probably be unable to return this time.” Xu Tuo spoke indifferently.
These words clearly referred to something.
Wu Xuechan was clearly aware of this, but he just grinned and said, “Fellow Daoist Xu Tuo, are you worrying about the disciples of your Sovereign Sect?”
The meaning behind his words was that Xu Tuo was speaking about the disciples of the Sovereign Sect.
Xu Tuo grunted coldly while his muddy eyes suddenly shot towards Wu Xuechan, and he said coldly, “Wu Xuechan, the Dao Discussion has ended now while those 30 little fellows have entered the Forgotten Grounds of Chaos. So, why don’t we seize this opportunity to have a battle? My heart is truly unable to rest in peace without killing you!”
As he spoke, his voice couldn’t help but contain a wisp of dense killing intent.
The eyes of Xuan Ming, Xue Ling, and Cai Ya focused when they heard this.
“If both of you fight and kill each other now, then who would bring those little fellows back 10 years from now?” However, before Wu Xuechan could answer, Liu Shenji’s voice suddenly resounded, and he appeared out of thin are right after that.
The corners of Xu Tuo’s lips twitched when he heard this, and he instantly went silent.
Wu Xuechan smiled and said, “Senior is right. It’s really unsuitable to fight now.”
At that instant just now, it wasn’t just Xu Tuo’s killing intent that was seething, even Wu Xuechan had aroused a trace of killing intent in his heart.
However, all of this had vanished without a trace because of Liu Shenji’s arrival.
“10 years of time is like the blink of an eye. Why don’t all of you rest here and prepare to act 10 years from now? I… will be waiting here as well.” Liu Shenji’s words instantly caused Xu Tuo and Wu Xuechan to abandon all thoughts of fighting each other. They were clearly aware that Liu Shenji had definitely acted in this way in order to prevent a battle between them from occurring.
Both of these Daolords couldn’t help but sigh in their hearts.
