Chapter 955: Hades Mountain
Can’t Xiping Country deal with the State Preceptor?Can’t Xiping Country deal with the State Preceptor?
Doesn’t that mean that the young man would have to stop both State Preceptor Feng Yu and Demonic Corpse State Master all by himself? Xiping Country Lead General and the officials on site gasped.
Looking at the situation, anyone could tell that it would be hard for the young man to win unless he was able to fight against two alone. Moreover, State Preceptor Feng Yu had come a long way, so he must still have support to show all his power.
“Primordial Soul realm’s refined corpse! Fengyu Country has some great ability.” Mo Wen looked at Fang Zhengxiang, a practitioner from the preliminary stage of the Primordial Soul realm. It was impossible for him to possess the Primordial Soul realm’s refined corpse. Most likely, it came from the powerful sect backing him up.
Little did Mo Wen know that the refined corpse was not concocted by anyone but the corpse while it was still alive. If not, Fengyu Country would not have been able to obtain such precious treasure like the Primordial Soul realm’s dark corpse flag.
“If you surrender and admit your wrongdoings now, I can probably spare your life,” State Preceptor Fang offered calmly. No matter what, this young man had the cultivation of the Primordial Soul realm, he thought. It would be pretty valuable.
“Beat me first before saying such things.”
Mo Wen smiled oddly while lightly pressing and rubbing against the spiritual medicine ring on his finger. Coincidentally, he had a treasure that could suppress the dark corpse flag. Otherwise, he would not have remembered owning it.
A flash of black light flew out from the spiritual medicine ring on Mo Wen’s finger. It was a black color flag with a creepy skull drawing. Along with the black light, an evil air arose, and a terrifying aura of resentment rushed up to the sky, forming blood-red clumps of cloud in the dark sky.
All of a sudden, the whole world seemed to be shaken by this terrifying evil aura. Thunder roared continuously while clouds in the sky rolled, and then it started to rain. The rain looked usual, but it turned into ice the moment it fell onto the ground. It also made a person wail hideously, like he had gone to hell, when it fell on him.
Mo Wen looked at the Ten Thousand Soul Banner solemnly. This was an ominous object. He got it from Chu Yuan, the leader of Ghost Lair, but had never used it. This object played a significant role in destroying the sacred rite of the Ghost Lair previously, but Mo Qingge was the one who used it, not him.
It was said that the Ten Thousand Soul Banner did not belong to Chu Yuan, but was an evil treasure concocted by a commander of Ghost Lair. Many souls of immortal cultivators were imprisoned in it, making it so fierce and evil. Mo Qingtian had told him before that the Primordial Soul of at least ten immortal cultivators had been imprisoned in the treasure, and the devotional method was rather authentic. So it was a genuine Ten Soul Banner.
In the past, Mo Wen was unsure and thought that the object was at least a Hundred Soul Banner since a large number of souls had been trapped in it. After Mo Qingtian’s explanation, he then understood that the calculation of Ten Thousand Soul Banner was not based on ordinary souls, but Primordial Souls. Only the primordial souls of strong practitioners who had practiced to the Primordial Soul realm would be counted.
An evil treasure refined by ten primordial souls represented the lives of ten practitioners in the Primordial Soul realm. Just the thought of that made one shudder. This object was too evil and ominous, so under usual circumstances, Mo Wen would never have used it.
“Such an evil aura! What’s that?”
On the watchtower, Zhang Huishan looked towards the sky with a solemn expression. He stretched his hands forward slightly, and a milky white jade plate flew out from his sleeves in an instant, releasing a flash of white light that shielded the whole Li’an City within it. If the raindrops were to fall into the city, all of Li’an City would be destroyed, not just the civilians.
Primordial Soul Realm Mighty Technique could easily destroy a part of the city pond.
“Senior Huishan, what’s that? It’s so scary, even more so than the Demonic Corpse State Master! Even though I’m so far away, I can still feel my soul shaking. It’s as if it’ll be extracted out of my body.”
Xiang Yuanjiu asked this with a look of panic. The aura just now was too horrifying. Although Senior Huishan had isolated the force, the influence of that power still remained, and it seemed unstoppable.
“Ten Thousem and Soul Banner—the most evil treasure in Hades Mountain.”
Zhang Huishan replied with a pale face, pretending to be calm while his hands quivered inside his sleeves. Ten Thousand Soul Banner unexpectedly appeared here, and such a ferocious one was something that would only be owned by a top commander.
Panic surged through his body as he had never imagined that things would come to this stage. He originally thought that it was a blessing for Xiping Country to have unexpected support, but the identity of this support…
Zhang Huishan was not afraid of the Ten Thousand Soul Banner, but the power behind it—Hades Mountain!
Hades Mountain was a heretic organization that had existed since ancient times. Traces of them were all over the world. It was said that they had once been rulers of the Source World, just like the present-day Huatian Palace.
However, at present, the world ruler was Huatian Palace. Anyone connected to Hades Mountain would have to bear with rather serious consequences.
Someone from the Hades Mountain defended Xiping Country. What would the others think? Even without the attack by Fengyu Country, Xiping Country would turn into ashes.
“What? Hades Mountain?”
Lead generals from Xiping Country felt a rush of cold air go through their bodies and then turned pale. They could not imagine the consequences of getting involved with the evil forces from Hades Mountain.
Once Mo Wen released the Ten Thousand Soul Banner, it caused a catastrophe to the world. Yin Qi released by the dark corpse flag was suddenly drawn into Ten Thousand Soul Banner, and all that filled the city pond was wiped out in the blink of an eye.
On the other hand, Demonic Corpse State Master fearfully hid behind the dark corpse flag, terrified.
“Ten Thousand Soul Banner! You… you’re an evil demon from Hades Mountain?”
State Preceptor Fang was also astounded. It was like he had met a ghost. What caused his fear was not Ten Thousand Soul Banner, but the identity of the other party—Hades Mountain. It was a power that could fight against Huatian Palace. It was not something a small fry like him could handle.
Moreover, Hades Mountain had always been merciless. Countless sects of Peng Lai Immortal Realm had been destroyed by Hades Mountain. Since ancient times, no less than 8,000 sects had been exterminated by Hades Mountain. Fengyu Country and the sects behind them were insignificant.
Did Xiping Country collude with Hades Mountain secretly?
State Preceptor Fang could not help but look at Zhang Huishan, who was at the watchtower. Colluding with Hades Mountain was equivalent to a death sentence. Once Huatian Palace verified this, there was no way Xiping Country would be safe.
Mo Wen gazed at State Preceptor Fang curiously. Although his Ten Thousand Soul Banner was fearsome and sufficient enough to control the Demonic Corpse State Master, it should not have scared him to this extent, Mo Wen thought. He would not believe that State Preceptor Fang did not have any other means after coming all the way here.
Hades Mountain? Mo Wen had heard that Ghost Lair was just a part of Hades Mountain. It was one of the greatest ancient powers. Or rather, it was the fundamentals for the underworld to stay in the Source World. In the future, if the underworld were to win the Millennium War, Hades Mountain would become the world ruler, replacing Huatian Palace.
No matter how you look at him, he did not seem like someone from the Hades Mountain.
Since he had started the fight, there was no way Mo Wen would stop. Yin Yang Qi controlled the Ten Thousand Soul Banner, which then turned into a sky curtain instantly, enveloping the battleground within. At the same time, countless dark spirits and malicious ghosts emerged from the darkness in waves of ten thousand… The most powerful ones were the ten primordial soul realm malicious ghosts. Each of them had an ability that exceeded a usual Infinite Powerhouse. If ten of them combined powers, it would be enough to fight against a normal Primordial Soul Realm cultivator.
“Wait a minute. Fengyu Country won’t want to become enemies of Hades Mountain. I’ll never step into Xiping Country again.”
State Preceptor Fang turned pale with fright as he kept stepping back. He did not wish to offend people from the Hades Mountain. Even though Hades Mountain was suppressed by Huatian Palace, they could easily put an end to Fengyu Country. If they had known that Xiping Country was protected by Hades Mountain, Fengyu Country would never have attempted to attack Xiping Country.
“Cut the crap.”
At lightning speed, a silvery-white thunderbolt spear appeared on Mo Wen’s hands—the Heavenly Serpent Divine Spear.
A heavenly serpent illusory figure appeared in the sky. In the next moment, a terrifying force struck State Preceptor Fang.
“Treasured level weapon! The power of spiritual treasure!”
State Preceptor Fang scanned the threatening Heavenly Serpent Divine Spear. He recognized that it was a rare spiritual treasure immediately. Spiritual treasure was rare, even in the whole of Peng Lai Immortal Realm. It was impossible for common Primordial Soul realm cultivators to own one. Only the mighty ones from Tide Changing Realm had the right to possess such treasures.
A mere young man actually owned a spiritual treasure? He became even more uncertain about the identity of this young man.
State Preceptor Fang was, after all, a reputable Primordial Soul realm cultivator for years. In the face of the attack by Heavenly Serpent Divine Spear, he also reacted quickly by striking his palm, which instantly expanded. A mighty power was released, clashing with the heavenly serpent illusory figure. It was a neck-and-neck fight.
Mo Wen squinted. In terms of strength, State Preceptor Fang was definitely above him. He relied on the power of Heavenly Serpent Divine Spear to be on par with him. Yet, the palm of State Preceptor Fang was nothing ordinary. He must have refined a profound level weapon on his hands, if not a normal palm that clashed with Heavenly Serpent Divine Spear would have instantly been blasted into ashes.
As expected, after the strike, State Preceptor Fang’s palm suddenly turned into a metal beast-like claw, emitting a green radiance.
“So, it’s a superb profound level weapon.”
Mo Wen finally understood. Peng Lai Immortal Realm cultivators were indeed prosperous. Superb profound level weapons were rare, but with Huatian Palace as support, Primordial Soul Realm cultivators were still able to buy them if they were to pay the right price for it.
If it had been in the gigantic Spirit Realm, common Primordial Soul Realm cultivators would be unlikely to own treasures like a superb profound-level weapon. After all, in the Spirit Realm, Primordial Soul Realm was at the lowest level for cultivators. While in Peng Lai Immortal Realm, Primordial Soul Realm might not be a high level, but it was still of the upper-middle level with a different level of authority. Hence, the number of resources they had was different.
“Your Excellency, I think we have some misunderstanding.”
State Preceptor Fang quickly clarified. After getting to know that Mo Wen had relations with Hades Mountain, he did not dare to continue battling with him. He could probably kill Mo Wen secretly somewhere secluded, but he would be creating trouble for himself to kill him in front of everyone.
