Chapter 1396: Choosing Opponents – Cruel Rules
There had never been fixed rules at the meeting of the emperors. As long as the emperors agreed, the rules could be determined at the start of every round.
The second round ended and Emperor Qi looked at the remaining people. There were about seven-eight hundred people left. The second round had been a bloodbath and the Qi Clan, the Si Kong Clan, Tian Long Divine Castle, Tiantai, the Wen Clan and the DevMara Palace had fought like madmen.
"Since all the disciples are brave and strong, and since they don't seem to be enjoying themselves that much, we could stimulate them a bit more. What do you all think?" asked Emperor Qi, looking at everybody in a sharp way.
"Just say the rules without being enigmatic!" said Emperor Wen in a cold way. Emperor Wen and Emperor Yu hated Emperor Qi more than anyone else. After they came back from Xue Yue, Emperor Qi and Emperor Si Kong had joined hands to fight against Emperor Wen.
"Fighters can be selected." said Emperor Qi glancing at the crowd. "Now that we have very few low-level Zun cultivators left, those who are remaining are extremely strong, such as Mu Feng. There's no difference between him and a medium-level Zun cultivator. I'm suggesting we can sort them. What do you think?"
"Hmph!" Mu Feng smiled coldly. Emperor Qi was using him as an example. Indeed, there was no difference between him and a medium-level Zun cultivator. Besides, their cultivation level didn't matter that much, their fighting abilities were more important.
The emperors remained silent, they didn't understand the rules clearly actually. What did he mean fighters could be selected?
"But high-level Zun Qi layer are different. Cultivators of the top of the Zun Qi layer such as cultivators of the eighth or ninth Zun Qi layer are different, so we can put them in their own group. Then we can do the same as we had during the first round: cultivators can divide into two groups, low-level and medium-level cultivators on one side, and cultivators at the top of the Zun Qi layer on the other. What do you think?" asked Emperor Qi.
The emperors agreed with that of course. They all wanted to protect their low-level and medium-level cultivators, saving them from fighting against cultivators of the top of the Zun Qi layer. Even Emperor Qi didn't want that necessarily.
"And then, what I meant by selected, is a battle consisting of two cultivators. Cultivators at the top of the Zun Qi layer can only select other cultivators at the top of the Zun Qi layer while the others can do as they wish. If someone chooses you, you must fight. If you are chosen, you must go to the stage. If you want to surrender, you must go to the stage and then go back onto the ground. Dying or going back to the ground means you are eliminated. Everybody has one chance to choose someone else. That way someone will get eliminated during each battle, and we can do that until the end." said Emperor Qi. The rules were strict and quite scary if thought about it.
"I have the feeling he made those rules because he wants Mu Feng to die." thought some people. Mu Feng had infuriated Emperor Qi during the second round. Emperor Qi was already nice when he said that cultivators at the top of the Zun Qi layer couldn't fight against low-level or medium-level cultivators, but he was also afraid that Hou Qing Lin could choose Qi Qian Ren.
And the Qi Clan, Tian Long Divine Castle and the Si Kong Clan had so many strong cultivators, they would definitely find someone to kill Mu Feng. If someone chose Mu Feng, he would have to fight. Then, he'd have only one chance to choose someone to fight.
Besides, Tiantai had less people, so they wouldn't be able to choose as many people as the other groups.
"Hmph!" Mu Feng smiled in an ice-cold way.
"How many people will choose me?" thought Lin Feng. He had won against a cultivator at the top of the Zun Qi layer, so he wasn't scared to be chosen by other people. He knew that the Qi Clan, the Si Kong Clan and Tian Long Divine Castle had incredibly strong medium-level Zun cultivators though. Tian Long Divine Castle had nine incredible cultivators, while six of them were medium-level cultivators. The one who had fought against Meng Qing during the first round was already astonishingly strong.
"Choosing the opponents is not a problem, the problem is the order and the ranking. What will be the ranking?" asked Emperor Wen. He didn't mind if cultivators chose their opponents, he had faith in the young cultivators from the Wen Clan: Wen Tian Ge and Wen Ao Xue for example. They could both defeat cultivators at the top of the Zun Qi layer. The Wen Clan also had many medium-level cultivators who were quite strong.
Emperor Wen wished Mu Feng was stronger. Even though anyone could choose Mu Feng, if he was strong enough, he could also kill all of them. Then the Wen Clan would have less pressure for the later rounds.
"Since my clan is the host of the event this time, I'd like to make a humble remark. I suggest we rotate from east to south to west to north and that two fighters from the same group can never be in the same battle." said Emperor Emperor Qi. In the order he had said, he would be the first one and Tiantai would be the last one.
Those rules made the situation difficult for Tiantai. Some people wouldn't have the opportunity to choose their opponent and would die before their time came. Emperor Qi's rules were clearly pitted against Tiantai.
"Not bad." said Emperor Si Kong. Of course he was happy about that and some of the others agreed as well..
"I agree." said Emperor Yu calmly. Tiantai's cultivators were not weaklings, they had all gone through hardships in their lives. Emperor Yu would never forget what Emperor Shi and him had gone through to become emperors themselves. They had killed countless people.
Emperor Yu didn't mind. During that third round, if they wanted to finish the meeting with two-hundred cultivators, the battles were going to last for a very long time. Only one person could be eliminated at a time, given that there were seven-eight hundred people in total, after three-four hundred battles, only half of them would be eliminated. Then, battles would start again from the beginning, and two hundred battles would take place to eliminate another half of them. That meant that there would be five-six hundred battles in total and that some people would get to choose an opponent twice.
"Since you all agree, let's start. Qi Xiao, you go first." said Emperor Qi. Qi Xiao nodded and jumped onto the battle stage. He was a cultivator at the top of the Zun Qi layer who had broken through to the eighth Zun Qi layer. Some people had noticed him before because his Empty s.p.a.ce Agility Technique was incredible.
"Let's see whom he'll chose." thought everybody. Qi Xiao glanced at the crowd, especially at the people from Tiantai. Then he pointed at a cultivator at the top of the Zun Qi layer from Tiantai and demanded, "Come and die!"
The cultivator of the top of the Zun Qi layer from Tiantai pulled a long face. He had broken through to the seventh Zun Qi layer and he controlled gold and Earth abstruse energies. But, he knew that he wasn't as strong as the cultivator from the Qi Clan.
Even if he couldn't win, he wanted to fight, so he jumped on the fighting stage.
"Slash, slash, slash…" as soon as he landed on the battle stage, the battle started. An empty s.p.a.ce appeared and a strong wind started blowing. Qi Xiao turned into several illusionary clones and surrounded the cultivator from Tiantai.
"He's going to kill me, I need to get down!" thought the tiantai cultivator.
"Break!" shouted the cultivator from Tiantai furiously. Suddenly, he was surrounded by gold and Earth energies, protecting him like an armor. Then, a gigantic illusionary battle-axe also appeared.
"Lalala!" the empty s.p.a.ce rolled in waves, quickly surrounding the cultivator from Tiantai.
"Empty s.p.a.ce wind explosion, ultimate pressure!" said Qi Xiao. With that, he broke the Earth and gold abstruse energies protecting the cultivator from Tiantai.
"He's doomed!" thought the crowd from Tiantai.
"Argh!" the cultivator from Tiantai shouted furiously and released his blood strength, but it was useless. He was too weak for Qi Xiao could even defeat cultivators of the ninth Zun Qi layer. In the end, he died.
"Pfew…" people from Tiantai took in a deep breath. The cultivation world was cruel and weak people would be trampled by the strong. Seeing their friend die was sad, but they worried that they were going to end up that way, too.
Mu Feng remained calm, but he was furious on the inside. He was still getting used to the cruelty of that world. His goal now was to kill as many people from the Qi Clan as possible to avenge his fellow disciples.
PMG Chapter 1397
Chapter 1397: Hopeless Seventh Prince
After Qi Xiao killed the cultivator of the top of the Zun Qi layer from Tiantai, he glanced at people from Tiantai in a cold way.
Then, he rose up in the air and went back to the top of Qi Tian Peak. The Qi Clan and Tiantai didn't need to exchange words, they only had to look at each other to know what the others were feeling.
After the Qi Clan, it was the Si Kong Clan's turn to send a fighter. This time, the Si Kong Clan sent a cultivator of the eighth Zun Qi layer and he chose a fighter from Tiantai as well. Tiantai had four cultivators at the top of the Zun Qi layer, three cultivators of the seventh Zun Qi layer and one of the eighth. The Qi Clan and the Si Kong Clan wanted to kill all the cultivators at the top of the Zun Qi layer from Tiantai, that way, Tiantai wouldn't be able to cope with their own cultivators in the end.
"Tiantai is doomed. Emperor Si Kong and Emperor Qi must have discussed this matter before the meeting of the emperors." thought the crowd.
Tiantai's people now understood what the Qi Clan and the Si Kong Clan had planned. After that, Mu Chen said to his people, "Not many of our people will be able to survive until the end. Please remember that you must think about your life first. You'll have another opportunity in a hundred years. Besides, in less than a hundred years, Tiantai will rise."
As expected, the second cultivator at the top of the Zun Qi layer from Tiantai didn't die, but was eliminated. The cultivator of the eighth Zun Qi layer from the Si Kong Clan had defeated the cultivator of the seventh Zun Qi layer from Tiantai. The best cultivators of Tiantai were mainly medium-level Zun cultivators, so this wasn't that surprising
After that, the Wen Clan sent Wen Ao Xue who chose an opponent from the Qi Clan: a medium-level Zun cultivator. Wen Ao Xue had reached the top of the third Zun Qi layer, and he controlled murder abstruse energies. Just like Wen Tian Ge who controlled murder, speed and empty s.p.a.ce abstruse energies. They were even better at controlling empty s.p.a.ce abstruse energies than the Qi Clan. Wen Ao Xue made quick work of his opponent.
After that, the others continued fighting. The other groups didn't choose people from the six main groups though, because they didn't want to get involved.
But when it was the Celestial Palace of the Immortals' turn, they chose a cultivator from the Qi Clan. The opponent forgot that Jun Mo Xi had an imperial immortal body and got too close to him. Jun Mo Xi easily won. Besides, when he punched his opponent's head, making it explode, Jun Mo Xi absorbed his opponent's vitality and recovered himself quickly. An imperial immortal body was even better than controlling life abstruse energies.
After Wen Ao Xue and Jun Mo Xi, Xiao Yu landed on the battle stage and also chose a cultivator from the Qi Clan. He completely destroyed a medium-level Zun cultivator.
Two medium-level Zun cultivator from the Qi Clan had died and one was injured. Three medium-level Zun cultivators from the Qi Clan had already been eliminated.
Many people were excited while the members of the Qi Clan looked furious.
After that, Yi Ren Lei battled and she also chose a cultivator from the Qi Clan: a medium-level Zun cultivator. She also killed her opponent!
Yuan Fei from the Mountain of Flowers and Fruit looked at the people from the Qi Clan and said arrogantly, "A bunch of c.u.n.ts, cultivators at the very top of the Zun Qi layer dared kill my brother. You shameless b.i.t.c.hes! And now you dare attack my brother's wife. I'll destroy some of you to avenge his death!"
Yuan Fei chose a medium-level Zun cultivator and crushed his head with his wooden stick. However, just before Yuan Fei was going to kill him for good, the cultivator jumped off the stage.
Then, it was Tian Long Divine Castle's turn. The Qi Clan had already lost three people and two of their fighters were injured. Five of their cultivators had been eliminated in total.
"I'll go and kill him!" said the seventh prince. He jumped forwards releasing b.e.s.t.i.a.l Qi. Of course, he was talking about Mu Feng.
"Let me go. I'm stronger." said the fifth prince, releasing a b.e.s.t.i.a.l Qi too. Even though Mu Feng was arrogant, he was, without a doubt, strong. His Deadly Demon Punch was terrifying. And when he had killed Qi Tian Xu, he had released some demon Qi with empty s.p.a.ce energy in it. The seventh prince might be too weak to deal with that demon cultivator.
The fifth prince had broken through to the sixth Zun Qi layer and his cultivation level was thus higher than Mu Feng's, he also had a powerful dragon spirit. Even cultivators of the seventh Zun Qi layer couldn't compete with him. Killing Mu Feng probably wouldn't be difficult for him. Concerning the fourth prince, he was even stronger. He could easily kill cultivators of the seventh Zun Qi layer.
"I'll go and kill him." said the seventh prince rushing over to the stage. All the members from Tian Long Divine Castle were surprised and exasperated.
"He has a bad temper." said the fourth prince, making the fifth prince smile wryly.
"Father, what do you think?" asked the fourth prince to Emperor Tian Long in a low voice. Emperor Tian Long rarely expressed his opinion.
"If Mu Feng hasn't hidden his real strength, he is, at most, as strong as Little Seven. Mu Feng has probably hidden his real strength, but I still think that Little Seven can defeat him with some difficult. He shouldn't have any problems protecting himself, at least. Besides, thanks to him, we'll also see how strong Mu Feng really is." replied Emperor Tian Long.
The seventh prince also needed experience, he needed to go through difficult battles. Therefore, he didn't prevent the seventh prince from going to the battle stage. If he won against Mu Feng, it would be good, if he lost, it wouldn't be a problem, he would learn from it instead.
The seventh prince landed on the battle stage and looked at Mu Feng, shouting furiously, "Mu Feng, I'll kill you now!"
Mu Feng had been waiting, finally, someone chose him. That person was one of the nine people they had talked about. He was the one who had tried to kill Meng Qing before.
"Boom!" Mu Feng jumped in the air and demonic Qi whistled. The force of the Earth and sky surrounded him, his eyes were pitch-black, his Qi was pure, he could easily oppress people of the fourth and fifth Zun Qi layer with that strength.
"Roar…"It seemed like there was an army of dragon around the seventh prince.
"One of the nine trump cards from Tian Long Divine Castle." thought the crowd.
Mu Feng amazed and astonished people because his cultivation level was so low. His cultivation level was the lowest amongst people who could defeat cultivators at the top of the Zun Qi layer, but each group had their trump cards. They could resist or even kill Mu Feng if they used them. Therefore, Emperor Qi had made the rules that way. He had hoped that Tian Long Divine Castle would send their princes to deal with Mu Feng.
But would Mu Feng lose?
"That battle should be incredible. Maybe we'll get to see Mu Feng use his full power. We've only rarely seen him before and now he's rising at the meeting of the emperors." thought the crowd. Mu Feng was mysterious.
"Roar, roar…" Mu Feng slowly walked forwards. The seventh prince was surprised by this nonchalant demeanor. Mu Feng released cursing energies, leaving the seventh prince feeling like he was going to die. Death Qi then surrounded and started draining his life.
Mu Feng had used his demon-curse and his death-curse techniques on him at the same time. He was also using demonic intent and singing his Nine Netherworlds Demonic Song. The seventh prince really thought that he was at the end of his life.
His face turned grey as began to look like a corpse. It seemed that the seventh prince had underestimated Mu Feng. Everybody had underestimated him. Demon energy was rolling in waves and the seventh prince was hopeless, without a chance to attack.
Mu Feng raised his fist, readying to use his Deadly Demon Punch. He also condensed the force of the Earth and sky in it, as well as immortal abstruse energies. The earth shook a dozen times under its weight. It no longer looked like a Deadly Demon Punch, it looked like a DevMara Punch!
"Boom!" Emperor Tian Long suddenly released a terrifying Qi. Even though he didn't attack Mu Feng, he could somehow sense how the seventh prince was feeling in that trance!
PMG Chapter 1398
Chapter 1398: Fu Hei – Outwardly Kind but Inwardly Evil!
"Argh, argh argh…" the seventh prince was shouting. His brain was shaking violently from the demonic intent. He raised his fist and condensed dragon energies, trying to amount something. However, that Deadly Demon Punch crashed onto his arm and instantly made it explode. Then, rumbling sounds spread in the air as Mu Feng punched the seventh prince's head, which also exploded.
"f.u.c.k off!" shouted Mu Feng. He kicked the seventh prince's corpse and made it fly back to the members of Tian Long Divine Castle. The corpse flew so fast that it emitted whistling sounds.
"He killed him in one punch!" the crowd was astonished. No words could describe how they felt, especially the members from the Qi Clan, Tian Long Divine Castle and the Si Kong Clan. They were shook by Mu Feng's hidden strength. They knew he was so strong, but not that strong.
The seventh prince didn't even have time to use his full strength, he died too quickly. Mu Feng had oppressed him from the beginning of the battle, if it could be called a battle. Had Mu Feng used his full strength now? n.o.body knew how strong Mu Feng really was.
Many thought about Lin Feng. Lin Feng was a lot like Mu Feng. However, Mu Feng was even more incredible than Lin Feng now, he had suddenly appeared and was directly killing the emperors' sons in front of them.
Of course, the members from Tian Long Divine Castle were both upset and mad when saw the seventh prince's corpse. Emperor Tian Long tried to remain calm, but he couldn't, he looked furious.
"Little Seven, it's my fault." said Emperor Tian Long looking at the seventh prince. Little Seven wasn't his biological son, he was his adopted son. He was stronger than Emperor Tian Long's biological sons because he had made great efforts to make Emperor Tian Long proud. He wanted to kill Mu Feng to prove to Emperor Tian Long how strong he was.
"Father, I'll definitely kill him." said the fifth prince, clenching his fists so hard that they emitting crackling sounds.
"I'll kill him when it's my turn." said the fourth prince. The fourth prince was the strongest prince apart from the cultivators at the top of the Zun Qi layer. He had reached the very top of the sixth Zun Qi layer. One more step and he'd be a cultivator at the top of the Zun Qi layer. He could even defeat cultivators of the seventh or eighth Zun Qi layer.
"We'll see." said Emperor Tian Long. Mu Feng had already left the battle stage and made it back to Tiantai. He looked expressionless.
After Tian Long Divine Castle, there were many other groups left to go. Next was the Fire Mountain's turn to choose an opponent. Fu Hei went to the battle stage and the crowd looked at him. It was difficult to imagine that he was one of the ten strongest young cultivators of Ba Huang given his dumb-looking appearance. According to the Diviner, he was extremely strong. He'd even become an emperor within the next eighty years, maybe thirty, or even ten.
Fu Hei's mouth twitched, then, he pointed at the Qi Clan and called upon a medium-level Zun cultivator, "You, you… yes, you, don't look at the others. Come here, please."
The cultivator from the Qi Clan finally understood that Fu Hei was pointing at him, so he was furious. Fu Hei and him weren't enemies, they didn't even know each other. So why did Fu Hei choose him?
None of the other groups wanted to join the Qi Clan, Tian Long and the Si Kong Clan's alliance it seemed. On top of that, now, Fu Hei from the Fire Mountain was challenging them.
"What are you looking at? Have you never seen a handsome man before?" asked Fu Hei when he saw that that cultivator from the Qi Clan were staring at him strangely.
"…" the cultivator of the Qi Clan was speechless. All the other groups were staring at them too. Just what was going on? Was Fire Mountain one of Tiantai's allies?
"Fu Hei, if you offend the Qi Clan, you'll regret it." said that strong cultivator while jumping onto the fighting stage.
"Are you from the Qi Clan?" asked Fu Hei.
"Eh…" that cultivator's mouth twitched. Fu Hei had chosen him as an opponent, hadn't he seen that he was from the Qi Clan?
"What the h.e.l.l are you on about?" asked that cultivator. Fu Hei walked towards him, he looked annoyed.
"Could you ask Emperor Qi if we could bury the hatchet?" asked Fu Hei in a fragile voice. That person was confused. He turned around and looked at the people at Qi Tian Peak.
"Be careful!" shouted an extremely loud voice. The cultivator from the Qi Clan suddenly sensed some energies, so he immediately used his Empty s.p.a.ce Agility Technique to escape.
"Boom!" However, a powerful fireball crashed onto his body and started burning him alive.
"No…" shouted that cultivator in pain. He was going insane as the fire was chewing through his flesh. No one could see him anymore, as the terrifying black flames had completely consumed him. He looked at Fu Hei, but he was already far away as if all this had nothing to do with him.
"Once on the battle stage, we're enemies. Here we're supposed to fight, sometimes to death. How come you believed me?" said Fu Hei compa.s.sionately. He almost sounded sad for his enemy. His death was even more tragic than the seventh prince's death.
"Fu Hei…" the crowd was covered with cold sweat. That guy was outwardly kind, but inwardly evil (translator's note: that's a joke because the name "Fu Hei" (付黑) is a h.o.m.ophone of another word "腹黑" which means " outwardly kind but inwardly evil"). Besides, Fu Hei had moved extremely fast when the Qi Clan's strong cultivator had used his Empty s.p.a.ce Agility Technique. Initially, many people didn't know that Fu Hei also controlled speed abstruse energies.
"That's the sixth one!" thought some people looking at the members of the Qi Clan. Six of their people had been eliminated and four of them had died. The first round of battles of the last round of the meeting hadn't even ended and they had already lost six people.
It was only the first round!
"Black flames!" thought Lin Feng frowning. It looked like demon fire Qi.
After that, the next battles were also incredible. Finally, it was Tiantai's turn. Everybody looked at them, who were they going to choose?
One cultivator of the top of the Zun Qi layer from Tiantai had died and another one was injured. On the side of the Qi Clan, four people had died and two were injured. On the side of Tian Long Divine Castle, one prince had died. In other words, Tiantai and their allies had the advantage so far. And now Tiantai would have the opportunity to eliminate someone else.
"Chen Hai, go and choose an opponent similar to you, but maybe a little bit stronger. If you lose, it's not a problem." said Mu Chen to a disciple of Tiantai. Chen Hai was surprised but nodded. He understood what Mu Chen meant. If he chose an opponent that was slightly stronger, he would become stronger if he won.
The crowd realized why Tiantai had sent a cultivator who seemed insignificant. It was because Tiantai didn't want their weaker cultivators to get killed before they used their pick.
Chen Hai was grateful. He chose someone a bit stronger than him and it was an insane battle. They were both injured, but he had no regret. If Mu Chen hadn't sent him, he may have died in the ensuing rounds.
PMG Chapter 1399
Chapter 1399: Prajna – Ban Ruo – Fury
This time, it was the Qi Clan's turn to choose again.
Emperor Qi's eyes twinkled. Mu Feng's strength was enigmatic and mysterious. Even he, as an emperor, couldn't see through Mu Feng's strength. Even Qi Qian Ren feared Mu Feng. Among all his sons, few had the potential to become emperors, but Qi Qian Xing was one of them. He was a cultivator of the very top of the Zun Qi layer, one step away from becoming an emperor.
Qi Qian Ren was one of them too. He was Emperor Qi's youngest son, but his talent was incredible. He was even catching up with a few of his brothers.
Emperor Qi hesitated, whom should he send? Should he send Qi Qian Yun to fight against a cultivator at the top of the Zun Qi layer from Tiantai? If he sent Qi Qian Ren, would he fight against Mu Feng?
Tiantai had two cultivators at the top of the Zun Qi layer left, one of the eighth Zun Qi layer and one of the seventh Zun Qi layer: Hou Qing Lin. They were both difficult to fight against.
"I'll go kill someone and come back!" said Qi Qian Ren indifferently. Then, he moved forwards and pointed at a medium-level Zun cultivator from Tiantai, but not Mu Feng.
Mu Feng looked at him coldly. Qi Qian Ren was Emperor Qi's biological son, Qi Qian Xing's brother. He was very strong, having broken through to the sixth Zun Qi layer while capable of killing cultivators of the eighth Zun Qi layer. He chose someone who wasn't that strong, so it would be difficult for the one he had challenged. Qi Qian Ren seemed to be waiting for Mu Feng to choose him.
In fact, the crowd thought the same. Qi Qian Ren easily killed the medium-level Zun cultivator from Tiantai, leaving them with only nineteen people left.
After that, a strong cultivator from the Si Kong Clan also challenged a medium-level Zun cultivator from Tiantai and killed him, leaving them with only eighteen people left.
But the Qi Clan wasn't that better off than Tiantai. When the Wen Clan and the DevMara Palace's turns came, they also killed two medium-level Zun cultivators from the Qi Clan. Then the Celestial Palace of the Immortals also killed one of their cultivators. However, the Mountain of Flowers and Fruit didn't fight against a cultivator of the Qi Clan, after all, they still had people from the b.e.s.t.i.a.l Imperial Palace to kill.
Nine people from the Qi Clan had already been eliminated. They only had twenty people left. They had six cultivators at the top of the Zun Qi layer and fourteen medium-level Zun cultivators left.
When it came to Tian Long Divine Castle's turn, Emperor Tian Long didn't allow a prince to fight against Mu Feng. He made a prince fight against Qiu Yue Xin. Qiu Yue Xin didn't win, she actually jumped back to the ground and gave up. Now, Tiantai only had seventeen people.
After the Fire Mountain, Tiantai sent another weaker cultivator. He was eliminated and they only had sixteen people left.
There were no surprise picks during the second round. The Wen Clan, the DevMara Palace and the Celestial Palace of the Immortals fought against the Qi Clan, while the Qi Clan, the Si Kong Clan and Tian Long Divine Castle fought against Tiantai. Including the cultivators Tiantai made forfeit, after three rounds, the Qi Clan had seventeen people left and Tiantai had twelve!
During the fourth round of battles, the members from the Qi Clan looked at the group of Tiantai, surprised by the twelve people who were left. Apart from the cultivator of the eighth Zun Qi layer, a cultivator of the sixth Zun Qi layer and Mu Feng, the nine others were the emperors' direct disciples. Even though they had been discreet, they looked unfathomable.
"Qi Yao, inspect that cultivator of the sixth Zun Qi layer." said Qi Xiao to his little brother, Qi Yao who had broken through to the sixth Zun Qi layer.
Qi Yao looked at Qi Qian Xing who nodded and said, "Go!"
Qi Yao landed on the stage and challenged the cultivator of the sixth Zun Qi layer.
Dazzling golden lights appeared as the cultivator from Tiantai opened his mouth widely and shouted furiously, "Argh…"
"Argh, argh argh…" terrifying golden lights suddenly emerged from his mouth, they looked like stars. Then a gigantic Buddha appeared behind that cultivator, he was holding a lotus in one hand and a sword in the other.
"Boom boom boom!" Qi Yao's face turned deathly pale. He was terrified.
"Kaboom!" the sword appeared in front of him and instantly beheaded him.
"He deserved it!" thought the members of Tiantai looking at him. He practiced Buddhist cultivation just like Tian Chi the Buddhist monk.
"That was a mantra which kills people for their sins to bring them to their salvation." people from the Celestial Thunder Temple were surprised and amazed. That guy should have joined the Celestial Thunder Temple, but he joined Tiantai instead.
"Qi Yao!" shouted Qi Xiao, staring at his brother's corpse. He felt guilty for indirectly killing his brother.
He looked at the strong cultivators from Tiantai in a cold way. The strong cultivator quickly went back to Emperor Yu's side.
Emperor Yu looked at the Qi Clan and said, "I've never introduced you to our twelfth direct disciple, since his Buddhist name is Prajna." (translator's note: "ban ruo" in Chinese is the transcription of "prajna" in Sanskrit, it means "wisdom" and it's one of the six paramitas)
"If he's one of the emperors' direct disciples, apart from that cultivator of the eighth Zun Qi layer and Mu Chen, all the others are the emperors' direct disciples!" thought the crowd. Many of Tiantai's cultivators had been eliminated, but they had also made some of their cultivators get eliminated on purpose.
The Qi Clan had sixteen people left: six top-level Zun cultivators and ten medium-level Zun cultivators, almost like Tiantai.
Then, it was the Si Kong Clan's turn, but they didn't know what to do. Whom could they choose amongst those twelve cultivators?
Finally, they chose a cultivator at the top of the fifth Zun Qi layer. He landed on the battle stage and glanced at Mu Feng, Ban Ruo, Tian Chi, Ruo Xie.
"You, come here." said the strong cultivator from the Si Kong Clan, pointing at someone. It was a cultivator of the fourth Zun Qi layer. His Qi wasn't that amazing and he looked calm and serene, both ordinary and simple.
"Sky Fissure, die!" shouted the Si Kong Clan's cultivator as soon as Tiantai's cultivator landed on the stage. He immediately punched the air in the direction that Tiantai's cultivator and created a fissure in the air.
"Bzzz!" the cultivator from Tiantai suddenly disappeared.
"Speed abstruse energy. His energy is extremely rich, thick and pure." thought the crowd, amazed. The cultivator from Tiantai suddenly turned around and raised five fingers.
"Tune Fingering!" the crowd was astonished. He was using a finger attack which utilized musical vibrations through the air. It contained terrifying energies which could make cultivators go insane.
"Die!" shouted the cultivator from the Si Kong Clan. His eyes gradually became lifeless and he didn't look as strong as before.
The music continued and like funeral music, it was gloomy and sad. The s.p.a.ce around them became distorted, so the cultivator from the Si Kong Clan immediately released his blood strength and spirit. He wanted to break free, but he realized he couldn't.
"An illusion!" the crowd just realized. Not only were there soundwave abstruse energies, but there were also illusion abstruse energies.
"The Si Kong Clan is going to lose that battle." thought the crowd.
After a short time, the cultivator from the Si Kong Clan wailed painfully, his eyes were filled with sorrow as explosions suddenly sounded. The cultivator from the Si Kong Clan made himself explode, he actually committed suicide!
The calm and serene looking young man went back to Emperor Yu.
Mu Feng was surprised. The emperor's direct disciples were incredible. They were Tiantai's trump cards. His song was similar to his Nine Netherworlds Demonic Song, but the Nine Netherworlds Demonic Song also required the usage of his vision as opposed to just sound.
PMG Chapter 1400
Chapter 1400: Borrowing the fifth prince's force
"Emperor Yu has faith in his direct disciples!" thought the crowd.
Emperor Yu and Emperor Shi had been discreet for a few hundreds of years and then they had recruited only nine direct disciples. After so many years, Mu Chen, Hou Qing Lin and Tian Chi had started traveling the world. Their cultivation level wasn't high back then, Mu Chen was a cultivator of the very top of the Tian Qi layer and the two others had only broken through to the Tian Qi layer.
That meant that Emperor Yu and Emperor Shi had raised them from the beginning. They had also hidden their six other disciples the entire time.
Besides, their direct disciples had knowledge about so many different things. Like Ban Ruo who knew terrifying mantras, soundwave, and illusional energies.
"The battles are becoming even more interesting. The Qi Clan, the Si Kong Clan and Tian Long Divine Castle can't eliminate Tiantai's people as easily anymore." thought some people.
After that, the Wen Clan and the DevMara Palace sent fighters again. They killed two medium-level Zun cultivators from the Qi Clan again. The Qi Clan had even fewer people left. After that, the Celestial Palace of the Immortals also eliminated a cultivator of the Qi Clan. They only had thirteen people left: seven medium-level Zun cultivators amongst them.
Besides, the Mountain of Flowers and Fruit, the Island of the Thunderbirds and Mang Niu Mountain also continuously attacked the b.e.s.t.i.a.l Imperial Palace.
The Heavens of Desire's Palace and the Fairyland of the Nine Songs also had incredible battles. The Celestial Thunder Temple and the Church of Desire were interesting to watch as well. But the Celestial Thunder Temple could easily oppress the Church of Desire.
The Abyss of Sufferings sometimes challenged people from the Wen Clan and weaklings were slowly eliminated.
Time pa.s.sed and it was Tian Long Divine Castle's turn again. They were tired, so what could they do? Should they try and fight against the three members of Tiantai, against whom hadn't fought yet? They looked ordinary and simple like Ban Ruo, but who could guarantee that they weren't as strong as or even stronger than Ban Ruo?
"Father, I'll go and kill Mu Feng." said the fifth prince to Emperor Tian Long.
"I'll go and kill him." said the fourth prince. He was afraid that the fifth prince could die.
"Don't, I'm worried about you." said the fifth prince.
"What if he hid his strength?" asked Emperor Tian Long to the fifth prince. The fifth prince could easily kill Mu Feng because he was a lot stronger than the seventh prince. However, if Mu Feng had hidden his strength still, it would be dangerous again.
"Even if he hid his strength, he can't kill me that quickly. I have broken through to the sixth Zun Qi layer and I know two kinds of abstruse energies. If I lose, I'll just jump onto the ground and give up. If I die, it's my fault." said the fifth prince.
Once the previous battle ended, the fifth prince jumped forwards.
"Brother!" shouted the fourth. He wished he could kill Mu Feng himself.
"Father!" said the fourth prince to Emperor Tian Long, but Emperor Tian Long closed his eyes and said "If you're not insane, you can't become an emperor. If I had prevented him from going, it would have been worse for him than losing, I would have influenced his future cultivation. Emperor Qi doesn't want Qi Qian Ren to kill Mu Feng because they have more secrets than us. They have another emperor, a medium-level emperor who actually controls their clan. Qi Qian Xing is also a cultivator of the very top of the Zun Qi layer, so he will soon become an emperor. We are different and I must be a good father. Your brothers and you are my only hope. You have to face danger, face pressure, be heroic, brave and determined to succeed if you want to become emperors."
The fourth prince bowed before Emperor Tian Long and said, "I understand, father."
The fourth prince knew his father was right, that dangers and risks were the keys to success. Tian Long Divine Castle couldn't compete with the Qi Clan, and if Tiantai rose, Tian Long Divine Castle would be doomed.
"Brother, good luck!" said the fourth prince looking at the stage. The fifth prince was on the stage, he was looking at the people from Tiantai. Dragons started roaring and a dragon illusion appeared behind him.
"Come out, come out…" his voice echoed far away in the distance.
Mu Feng looked calm and serene. He jumped forward while condensing force in his feet. He then released demonic energies while landing on the stage.
"Argh!" dragons roared and the fifth prince turned into a dragon. His Qi rose to the skies and moved towards Mu Feng
The fifth prince's dragon claws lacerated the sky and looked sanguinary. He released blood abstruse energies, further invoking his own blood strength. This also activated Mu Feng's blood.
"Blood abstruse energies, gold abstruse energies!" the crowd looked at the golden-red dragon.
"Dragon Totem!" Mu Feng looked at the dragon claws moving towards him and noticed that his opponent was condensing gold and blood energies into a dragon totem. It was dazzling, some holy marks even appeared on it.
Few people know how to use holy marks to attack, and those who did needed time to use them, unlike Qiong Qi. And even when they did use holy marks, their attacks couldn't be as powerful as when stronger cultivators used them.
The fifth prince fused together the holy marks and dragon lights.
"Die, die, die!" shouted Mu Feng, his voice echoed and made the fifth prince shake. Then, he raised his fist and started a.s.saulting him with his Deadly Demon Punch attack, he also condensed immortal energies into it.
Explosions sounded, but the fifth prince's dragon claws continued moving forwards.
"Eh?" the crowd was astonished, especially the strong cultivators from Tian Long Divine Castle.
"Die!" shouted the fifth prince bravely. His fists collided with Mu Feng's Deadly Demon Punch and explosions ensued. Mu Feng was propelled away, and it sounded like his bones had been broken.
"Die!" shouted the fifth prince. It seemed like Mu Feng couldn't resist his attacks, so he chased Mu Feng. However, Mu Feng didn't back down. He condensed immortal energies in his fist again and used his Deadly Demon Punch once more. Then, his fist collided with the fifth prince again, crackling sounds were heard, then an ocean of energies rolled in waves and propelled Mu Feng away. Their fists collided a myriad of times after that.
"Is that his full power? Where's the demon king silhouette?" thought some people in the crowd. If Mu Feng continued on like that, he'd die soon.
The two silhouettes kept colliding, higher and higher up in the sky. Those at the top of the mountains had to raise their heads to look at them.
"Last step!" thought Lin Feng. He could sense that he was going to break through to the next cultivation layer at any moment.
"Die!" shouted Mu Feng furiously. This time, he used both fists to attack the fifth prince. He didn't dodge the fifth prince's attack either.
"Argh!" Mu Feng raised his head and looked up at the sky. His hair was fluttering in the strong winds above. He condensed all his strength and turned it into a demonic hurricane.
"Boom!" Emperor Tian Long suddenly stood up and looked at Mu Feng worriedly.
Emperor Qi was also petrified. Emperor Yu, however, was smiling magnificently!
"Mu Feng is about to break through to the third Zun Qi layer!" thought the crowd. Mu Feng had endured the attacks on purpose because he wanted to break through to the next cultivation layer!
