An ancient will resided in the demon sword.
The Demonic Divinity Sacrificial Transformation was a secret art, it was irreversible. Yet, the voice from the demon sword claimed the direct opposite.
Where did the sky sovereign roc that resented the fact that the heavens were too low, originate from?
Could the legends from Sword Reverence City be true? This sword originated from a place beyond this world. As it fell down from the heavens, it’s sharpness sundered the mountains outside Sword Reverence City, creating the Sword Reverence Precipice.
The sword landed at the bottom of the precipice, hating the heavens were too low, dreadful wails echoed unceasingly, it was unwilling to be pulled out.
“How?” Qin Wentian asked, his voice trembling with emotions.
“You woke me up from my slumber with your blood, forming a karmic bond between us. This is also the reason why you could hear my voice even though we are so far apart. I shall bestow upon you…the Immortal Vanquishing Swordplay.” That archaic voice rang out in his mind. “The ancient will connects your essence with the demonic divinity of the eight directions, using your mortal body as a sacrifice, changing your form into that of a demon. You obviously have an extraordinary background. Since your sensory abilities are so advanced, this means that you might have a chance to understand this sword art, using it to burn the demonic energy which infused itself into your body to reverse the demonic divinity transformation.
“This is an immortal art, the Immortal Vanquishing Swordplay. To execute this, you have to use the entirety of the demonic divinity energy infused within your body as fuel. However that is still insufficient. Even adding the power of your bloodline and the entire pool of energy in your Yuanfu to the mix, I’m afraid the amount of power gathered would still be insufficient to allow you unleash even one stance of the Immortal Vanquishing Swordplay. But, if you somehow succeed in this, the demonic form will be reversed, even your vitality would be sapped. Despite your strengthened physique, it would be impossible for you to recover without a year of rest,”
The voice resounded in his mind, Qin Wentian’s heart trembled violently. The power of the Immortal Vanquishing Swordplay exceeded the power he wielded when he used the demon sword by a hundred or even a thousand times. The current him had no way to withstand such a large expenditure.
Qin Wentian intrinsically understood that he had transformed into a great roc because of external sources of energy being channeled into him. The ancient will stretched across the skies, forming a connection with the eight demonic divinities, it borrowed the power of the demonic constellations to transform him into his current form. The method the demon sword was teaching him, was to burn all of this energy as fuel to unleash this immortal sword art to totally reverse the process. However this method is extremely tyrannical, even his vitality would be damaged, he might even die in the process. Mortals are not meant to wield immortal arts after all.
This swordplay, was an immortal art akin to the Great Nirvana Art. The might it possessed was inconceivable, and the difficulty to execute it was by far many times tougher and more dangerous compared to him trying to pull out the demon sword back then.
“Are you willing to learn it?” The archaic voice echoed once again. The glint of resolution flashed in the eyes of the roc. Right now, he didn’t just have the body of a great roc. He has another true-body by virtue of the Great Nirvana Immortal Art. No matter how high the risks were, he would be willing to learn it. Although he would need a long period of recuperation in the event that he didn’t die, he still has another true-body out there and could cultivate as well. There was no loss for him.
“I am.” Qin Wentian’s voice could shatter iron, he didn’t hesitate.
If he could master this art, he might even be able to use the energy from the Demonic Divinity Sacrificial Transformation Art repeatedly to power the swordplay in the future after he gets stronger. Although the price is great, he had nothing to fear. He had two true bodies after all.
“Very well, remember this. Do not ever attempt to use this swordplay if you are not in the form of the primordial great roc. Without the energy from the demonic divinities, this swordplay will burn up your life force instead. You won’t be able to withstand it, death is certain.” That voice cautioned. Qin Wentian took this to his heart, he could only unleash this immortal swordplay when in the form of a great roc. If not, he would definitely die for sure.
But naturally, if his cultivation level reached a certain realm in the future, there wouldn’t be any more restrictions.
At this moment, the voice of the demon sword directly transmitted the information into his mind. Qin Wentian closed his eyes and hovered in the skies, immersing the entirety of his perception within himself, solely focusing on the information he was receiving.
Only after long moments passed did he finally open his eyes again.
He had only managed to comprehend the first stance, the simplest stance.
The first stance wasn’t difficult, it was the basic stance that built the foundation for the remaining stances of the Immortal Vanquishing Swordplay. But despite this, it was after all, still an Immortal Art. He had no way at all to summon enough energy to use it. He couldn’t even endure the consumption rate of the first, and simplest stance. Just like what the demon sword said, it would burn through the entirety of his demonic divinity energy, drain him of energy in his Yuanfu, and even injure his vitality. And, if the sum of these three factors wasn’t enough, he could also die.
“Senior, are you the incarnation of the sky sovereign roc or are you the sword spirit of the demon sword?” Qin Wentian curiously inquired. Where had the demon sword come from and what exactly was it?
“No idea.” The demon sword sighed before returning to stillness. Qin Wentian also went silent as he continued walking forward.
The date for the ranking battle was nearing. He had to lead his men to Ginkou before the Heavenly Fate Rankings commence.
After many days, in the temporary base of the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan in Ginkou, there were currently several powerful experts guarding this place. Even the Chen Clan wouldn’t have an easy time if they were to attack.
There were no other reasons other than the fact that the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan, Jiang Clan and Mystic Moon Sect had come together with the intention of forming an alliance.
After all, who would dare to antagonize an alliance formed from three transcendent powers?
Currently, the ancestor of the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan, the ancestor of the Jiang Clan and the sect leader of the Mystic Moon Sect all sat together with countless experts seated below them.
A few days ago, a slaughter occurred at the base of the Mystic Moon Sect in Ginkou by members from the Great Solar Chen Clan. This matter didn’t just cause the entire Ginkou Continent to be shocked, everyone in Grand Xia was flabbergasted. The inherent meaning of Chen Clan’s actions was informative. It was merely the start of a war that would erupt between the transcendent powers of Grand Xia.
And now, the ancestors of both the Jiang and Ouyang Aristocrat Clan had personally arrived. Even though they had formed an alliance with the Mystic Moon Sect, they were still considering if they should stand so firmly on their side.
After all, they had to consider the benefits to their whole clan as a whole. It was impossible for them fully commit to, and participate in an all out war with other transcendent powers because of the friendship between Qin Wentian, Ouyang Kuangsheng, Bai Qing, and other members of the younger generations.
Who wouldn’t be cautious when speaking of an all-out war among transcendent powers? If they were slightly careless, even as a transcendent power, they might fall.
These were the thoughts of the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan and Jiang Clan’s ancestors. But it was different for the Mystic Moon Sect. They were in this alliance solely for revenge. Hence, they hoped to be able to convince the two transcendent powers to aid them.
If it was just purely an alliance with defense in mind, the Ouyang and Jiang Clan were naturally willing to do so. Only then would their clans be able to stand secure in these chaotic times in Grand Xia. However, if they truly wanted to participate in an all-out war, it wasn’t something that could be so easily settled with just three transcendent powers in an alliance.
“Ancestor, if the Chen Clan gets the chance, they would definitely not spare our Ouyang Aristocrat Clan. At this moment, Ouyang Kuangsheng who was standing in the crowd below, spoke. The ancestor of the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan glanced at him before replying, “Naturally, I understand, but if our Ouyang Aristocrat Clan is strong enough, we would similarly not spare the Great Solar Chen Clan. However, if we clash now, it’s unknown who would remain standing in the end. And if we engaged in an all-out war, the other transcendent powers that have an enmity with our Ouyang Clan would definitely make use of this opportunity to stab us in the back. Should there be any unexpected variations to the situation, our clan would then fall into extreme danger.”
“Also, since the three of us can form an alliance, what makes you think that the Chen Clan, Hua Clan, Wang Clan and Nine Mystical Palace, cannot? If the four of them join in an alliance, their overall power would be even stronger compared to us.”
Upon hearing this, the clamors of those below all died down as heavy expressions could be seen on their faces. However, there was a middle-aged woman from the Mystic Moon Sect that had no fluctuations to her expressions despite hearing the words from the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan’s ancestor.
For cultivators who had reached her level, their hearts were as still as water. She also understood that the situation her sect was facing was different in comparison to the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan and Jiang Clan. She also understood the reasoning behind their decisions, and if the three of them really failed to come to an alliance, her Mystic Moon Sect would have no choice but to endure this debt of hatred.
At this moment, a guard entered the courtyard. Someone from the Ouyang Clan stood up in response, “What’s the matter?”
“Someone came by, requesting to seek an audience.” The guard replied. The person from Ouyang Clan frowned as he waved his hands, “Reject him.”
“But this person said that…he’s Qin Wentian.” As the sound of the guard’s voice faded away, bright light flashed in the eyes of the crowd. Qin Wentian?
Back then after he wreaked havoc at the Pill Emperor Hall, if he’s still alive, it only meant that there’s an extremely powerful faction behind him, and they were they ones who whisked him away from there.
Ouyang Kuangsheng, Fan Le and the rest all had sharp glints of light flickering in their eyes. Moments later, the man who named himself Qin Wentian arrived. And upon seeing his appearance, everyone’s countenance was marred by frowns and furrowed brows.
“I’m named Di Tian, Qin Wentian was the one who commanded me to come to Ginkou.”
Qin Wentian slowly spoke. His real face in human form and the great roc can never appear simultaneously at the same place in front of the public.
“How can I trust you?” Ouyang Kuangsheng coldly asked.
Qin Wentian stomped on the ground, astral light bursted outwards, his silhouette appearing at an empty space near the crowd. With two sword fingers stabbing skywards, a myriad of sword beams shot downwards through the skies, as though answering his call.
“Stellar Transposition, Heavenly Swordplay. I recalled you know the Bloodcurse Imprint as well. The nine ultimate arts of Grand Xia, you truly know quite a few of them.” Ouyang Kuangsheng stared intently at Qin Wentian, he was already somewhat convinced that Di Tian was here under Qin Wentian’s command.
“Where is Qin Wentian now? Is he still well?” Chu Mang spoke.
“A few days ago, he destroyed the Nine Mystical Palace. Currently, he is leading a force over to Ginkou and will appear here during the day when the ranking battle for the Heavenly Fate Rankings commences.” Di Tian slowly replied, his words causing the pupils of those present to narrow. The Nine Mystical Palace was already destroyed by Qin Wentian?
“Is there any proof of what you said?” Ancestor Ouyang asked. “What is your identity?”
“Qin Wentian currently has control over an extremely powerful force. I’m Di Tian, Qin Wentian is my master. If you still cannot believe me, let me show you something.” As he spoke, Qin Wentian stretched out his arm. A moment later, scales began forming around it, eventually transforming into the arm of a kirin. The eyes of Fan Le and the rest widened in surprise as they saw it. That was, the Fiend Transformation Art.
Seeing how this man knew so many of Qin Wentian’s techniques, there couldn’t be any mistake.
Qin Wentian was still alive!
“What did I tell you guys? That fellow wouldn’t die so easily.” Fan Le was grinning from ear to ear. Ouyang Kuangsheng and Chu Mang were laughing as well. Qin Wentian was still alive!
“Did you come here because Qin Wentian wanted to tell us something?” Ancestor Ouyang asked. Right now, his heart was palpitating with excitement. Qin Wentian didn’t die, does this mean that the power behind him… Was this also the reason behind the Pill Emperor Hall’s seclusion?
“Yes. During the ranking battle, the experts under him will gather here and wage an all-out war with the Great Solar Chen Clan. He hopes that the three powers here would be able to form an alliance with him to destroy the Chen Clan once and for all.
“The consequences of an all-out war isn’t something you can imagine.” Ancestor Ouyang stated.
“Back then, Qin Wentian bestowed young master Ouyang with the nine ultimate arts. And today, he is willing to share the entire set of the nine ultimate arts with the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan and Jiang Clan. Is it worth it now for you to join the alliance?”
Qin Wentian’s eyes flashed with sharpness as he regarded the people before him. The entire set of the nine ultimate arts. Not one of them, but the entire set.
That day, Ouyang Kuangsheng cultivated a few of the nine arts, that was because he and Qin Wentian were brothers to speak of. Even when his clan members wanted him to divulge the arts he learnt, he refused to do so purely because of the same reason. He and Qin Wentian were brothers. Because of this, the elders of the clan couldn’t help but to start disliking him. On the surface, they still doted on him, but secretly all of them pined for the day when Ouyang Kuangsheng could see sense and shared the ultimate arts with the rest of the clan.
However now, Qin Wentian was actually willing to share the entire set of the nine ultimate arts with them.
This temptation, how could it be small? With the nine ultimate arts, their Ouyang Aristocrat Clan would definitely become one of the strongest in Grand Xia.
“If the Nine Mystical Palace, Hua Clan or Wang Clan are added into the mix, we don’t have any chance of victory.” Ancestor Ouyang was still wavering on a thin line of hesitation.
“You are wrong. The Nine Mystical Palace has already been destroyed. As for the Hua Clan and Wang Clan, leave them to Qin Wentian, his plans are already in motion. As long as you publicly declare that this alliance is formed to oppose the Chen Clan, they will definitely take the bait. With the three of you; the Ouyang Aristocrat Clan, the Jiang Clan, the Mystic Moon Sect, in addition along with the power that destroys the Nine Mystical Palace. Who do you think will be stronger?”
“The Great Solar Chen Clan has three Ascendants. The strongest out of those three is more powerful compared to any of us. We have no way to resist.” Ancestor Ouyang spoke again. That person was the trump card of the Great Solar Chen Clan. Since they dared to initiate the all-out war against the Mystic Moon Sect, they would naturally have enough strength to match their actions.
“Three Ascendants. Even though one among them is a initial Ascendant, he’s extremely powerful compared to majority of initial Ascendants because of the fact he cultivates the Great Solar Universe Art. The power of the three of them acting together isn’t something you can imagine at your current level.”
“On our side, we also have three Ascendants, not counting the Ascendant brought over by Qin Wentian, even if we cannot destroy the Great Solar Chen Clan, it isn’t a problem to suppress the three Ascendants on their side. As long as we can hold them back, engaging in an all-out war would definitely severely damage the Great Solar Chen Clan, they wouldn’t be able to recover in less than a few decades. And by that time, after all your clan members are skilled in the nine ultimate arts, tell me. Would any of you still fear the Great Solar Chen Clan?”
Qin Wentian’s persuasion was forceful and direct. His words caused the eyes of the ancestor from the Ouyang Clan to glisten with a bright light. Qin Wentian’s analysis was right, this alliance was worth the risk!
