Let the wheels of time be turned back to before Chen Xi’s group had encountered the Divine Shaman Sacrificial Altar.
Almost six years ago when the Dao Institute’s Li Lufeng had become the first disciple to step into the ranks of Region Lords.
At that time, Chen Xi’s group had just arrived at the snowfield that was covered in wind and snow.
When Li Lufeng became a Region Lord, his imposing aura was completely different. It was filled with a dignified aura, and it far surpassed everyone else.
So, he very naturally replaced Yea Chen and Yu Jiuhui to become the leader of the group from the Dao Institute, and he led their group to search for regions.
However, after merely a month had passed, Yea Chen and Yu Jiuhui had split up from Li Lufeng’s group because of a dispute, and they’d started to travel on their own.
This dispute had similarly arisen because of a Region Quintessence, and it was at a region that had been noticed by Kong Youran and the members of the Nuwa’s Dao Palace.
According to Yea Chen’s opinion, he would absolutely not enter into conflict with the members of Nuwa’s Dao Palace at such a moment. However, he’d never imagined that Li Lufeng who’d become a Region Lord wouldn’t take his opinion seriously at all, and Li Lufeng launched a slaughter against Kong Youran’s group.
In the end, even though Yea Chen and Yu Jiuhui did their best to stop it, a disciple of Nuwa’s Dao Palace had still perished miserably at Li Lufeng’s hands, whereas, Kong Youran and the others from Nuwa’s Dao Palace had been forced to flee. So, that Region Quintessence had naturally fallen into the hands of the Dao Institute.
Under such circumstances, Yea Chen and Yu Jiuhui were naturally extremely displeased by Li Lufeng’s actions. But at the same time, Li Lufeng revealed rage and disdain towards them because in his opinion, if Yea Chen and Yu Jiuhui hadn’t obstructed him, then besides Shi Yu who was cultivating within a Region Quintessence, the entire group from Nuwa’s Dao Palace would have been annihilated.
Since there was intense conflict between them that couldn’t be resolved, Yea Chen and Yu Jiuhui had chosen to split up from Li Lufeng.
However, to their disappointment, the other two disciples of the Dao Institute didn’t intend to leave with them, and they’d chosen to work together with Li Lufeng.
Obviously, they attached important to the might possessed by Li Lufeng who’d advanced into the ranks of Region Lords.
One year after then which was the first year Chen Xi cultivated within that mysterious region.
Donghuang Yinxuan emerged from his state of cultivation and became a Region Lord!
From that moment onward, the disciples of the Divine Institute followed behind Donghuang Yinxuan and started to search for new regions.
During the second year Chen Xi was cultivating within the mysterious region.
Kong Youran found a new region, and she started to refine and absorb its quintessence.
On that very same year, Yea Chen found a new region, and he started to refine and absorb its quintessence. On the other hand, Yu Jiuhui left to search for another new region by himself.
On the third year.
Leng Xinghun became a Region Lord, and he led the remaining 3 disciples of the Sovereign Sect to search for new regions once more.
On the fourth year.
Numerous incidents occurred throughout this year.
Firstly, Oracle Mountain’s Tu Meng emerged from his cultivation and became a Region Lord!
But in next to no time, Tu Meng entered into conflict with Li Lufeng’s group while searching for Chen Xi, and the battle between these two Region Lords caused a monstrous calamity.
In the end, when Tu Meng had a clear advantage and was on the verge of killing Li Lufeng, Tu Meng suffered a surprise attack from Donghuang Yinxuan who noticed the battle and rushed over, causing Tu Meng to become heavily injured and flee.
As for why Donghuang Yinxuan would help Li Lufeng, Tu Meng was unable to figure it out as well. However, he’d taken the Dao Institute’s disciples to be enemies just like the Sovereign Sect and Divine Institute.
It was also during this year that Jia Nan found a new region and started cultivating.
On the fifth year.
Disaster suddenly descended in the Forgotten Grounds of Chaos, and it caused the Sovereign Sect, Divine Institute, Dao Institute, and Nuwa’s Dao Palace to suffer losses.
The Sovereign Sect lost another disciple who died miserably within a blood colored storm because Leng Xinghun was unable to rescue that disciple in time even with his might as a Region Lord.
At this point, only three disciples of the Sovereign Sect remaining when Leng Xinghun was included.
On the Divine Institute’s side, a disciple fell into the chaotic expanse of the starry sky, and he became completely lost and had most probably suffered a tragic fate.
If this disciple wasn’t included, then only four disciples of the Divine Institute remained.
Nuwa’s Dao Palace lost another disciple as well, but this disciple hadn’t perished because of a natural disaster. This disciple had lost her life at Leng Xinghun’s hand.
If Shi Yu who’d emerged from his cultivation hadn’t rushed over in time, then the other disciple of Nuwa’s Dao Palace would have definitely suffered death at Leng Xinghun’s hands.
At this point, only three disciples of Nuwa’s Dao Palace remained, and one of them, Kong Youran, was still cultivating within a Region Quintessence.
On the Dao Institute’s side, one of the two companions by Li Lufeng’s side had the bad luck of being inflicted by the Dao Restraint Tribulation Energy while entering a Region Quintessence, and he perished on the spot.
At this point, if Yea Chen and Yu Jiuhui were included, then four disciples of the Dao Institute remained.
In short, this was the Forgotten Grounds of Chaos. No matter how extraordinary a peerless genius’ physique and cultivation were, it was impossible to avoid losing their lives unexpectedly when facing the brutal competition with their enemies here and the extremely dangerous environment here!
On the sixth year.
Wang Zhong who’d been constantly flying around and searching throughout the Forgotten Grounds of Chaos had arrived at a sinister mountain that was covered in blood red vines, and he vanished within it.
On the same day that Wang Zhong vanished, phenomena of the heavens and the earth descended here. At that time, blood red lightning flickered while a storm of blood descended, and all of this only vanished after seven days and seven nights had passed.
At the same time, Leng Xinghun and Donghuang Yinxuan’s groups had converged together, and they’d arrived at a snowfield that was covered in wind and snow.
Chen Xi’s group had arrived at this snowfield many years ago….
As if it was being controlled by the indistinct will of the heavens, Tu Meng who’d just recovered from his injuries had arrived here as well, and he just so happened to encounter Leng Xinghun and Donghuang Yinxuan.
A battle was unavoidable.
No matter if it was Leng Xinghun or Donghuang Yinxuan, they were both Region Lords now. So, Tu Meng was very clearly aware of how dangerous the situation was when he faced their pincer attacks.
It was even to the extent that he was fighting desperately with the resolution to give up his life in battle.
However, this battle merely continued for some time before it was stopped by an unexpected event.
The ground of the snowfield seemed to be unable to endure the destructive force created by a battle between three Region Lords, and it cracked and collapsed in the end to reveal an enormous bottomless abyss!
After that, before they could react, an irresistible strand of enormous suction force enveloped them and swept them into the abyss.
Tu Meng was fortunate because this unexpected event allowed him to avoid death.
But he was also unfortunate and even slightly regretted coming to the snowfield. Because he noticed to his shock that a mysterious expanse of stars filled with killing intent existed at the bottom of the abyss.
It wasn’t just Tu Meng who’d arrived here, even Leng Xinghun and Donghuang Yinxuan had arrived here as well!
Under such circumstances, he was still unable to avoid the fate of being besieged and killed!
Tu Meng was naturally unwilling to be killed, so he fled with all his might and teleported at full speed within this dangerous expanse of space that was covered in stars. During this entire process, they’d almost caught up to him on more than one occasion, and he’d paid quite a price because of this.
After that, something that caused Tu Meng to be filled with regret happened….
Because he saw an expanse of Region Quintessences, and a very familiar figure was seated cross-legged within the Region Quintessence. Shockingly, it was his Martial Ancestral Uncle, Chen Xi!
If it was just like this, then Tu Meng wouldn’t feel regretful at all because he was clearly aware that even if Leng Xinghun and Donghuang Yinxuan joined forces, they would be unable to break through the tribulation energy that enveloped that Region Quintessence.
The true reason for his regret was that he suddenly noticed that A’Liang and Gu Yan were standing on guard outside this Region Quintessence!
This was simply equivalent to him drawing a pack of wolves over here and causing Gu Yan and A’Liang’s lives to be put in lethal danger!
Tu Meng truly wished for nothing more than to slap himself to death, and he was even unable to determine whether he was lucky or unlucky this time.
It was just a snowfield, yet he’d encountered Leng Xinghun and Donghuang Yinxuan by coincidence. This wasn’t lucky at all.
After that, an unexpected event occurred during the battle between them, causing him to be swept into a mysterious expanse of space which was covered in stars and resided beneath the abyss. This had indirectly helped him avoid death. So, this could be considered as lucky.
But in the end, he noticed that not only had he failed to escape his fate of being pursued and killed, he’d even implicated Gu Yan and A’Liang. This was extraordinary bad luck!
Gu Yan and A’Liang were originally hiding in the shadows. But when they saw Tu Meng appear here, how could they restrain themselves? Both of them had revealed themselves to welcome him.
However, when they noticed Tu Meng was in a sorry state and covered in a large amount of injuries, it instantly caused the excitement and happiness in their hearts to reduce greatly.
Especially when they noticed Donghuang Yinxuan and Leng Xinghun who’d arrived here in pursuit of Tu Meng, their hearts instantly fell to rock bottom.
We’re in danger!
When they heard Tu Meng’s voice transmission that was filled with regret and anxiety, both A’Liang and Gu Yan realized that a calamity would erupt at any moment!
What should we do?
It’s utterly impossible for us to flee.
Even Tu Meng who’d advanced into the ranks of Region Lords was in such a sorry state, let alone the two of them who were still Universe Enlightened Ancestral Gods.
At the same time, they didn’t hold any hopes that Chen Xi who was cultivating would be able to be of help to them. Because Chen Xi had encountered extremely great difficulty as well.
There were still two Region Quintessences before Chen Xi that hadn’t been refined and absorbed. If he left at this moment, then not only would his previous efforts be in vain, Chen Xi who hadn’t advanced into the ranks of Region Lords wouldn’t be a match for Leng Xinghun and Donghuang Yinxuan at all!
They couldn’t flee yet couldn’t place their hopes on Chen Xi as well. This caused Gu Yan, A’Liang, and Tu Meng’s expressions to become unsightly.
It felt like they were trapped beasts that were unable to escape any longer.
“I never expected that this fellow, Chen Xi, would actually be so extraordinary. He actually found such a mysterious region. Who would have imagined that a region that had taken form would actually be hidden beneath the surface of the Forgotten Grounds of Chaos? Extraordinary! Truly extraordinary! Even I feel slight admiration towards him.” Along with a wave of cold laughter, Donghuang Yinxuan and Leng Xinghun arrived side by side. Their gazes merely swept past Gu Yan and the others before simultaneously descending onto the Region Quintessences in the distance, and their expressions even carried a wisp of admiration.
However, Gu Yan and the others didn’t think for a second that it was praise towards Chen Xi!
