Ancient Godly Monarch - Chapter 963
Mo Xie’s dark golden eyes stared at Zi Daoyang. The two of them had both obtained a portion of the Brahma Heavenly Emperor’s inheritance. They both understood that with just a portion, it was completely impossible to unleash the full supreme might of their inheritance. They could only consume the inheritances of the others to strengthen their own and grow exponentially stronger.
Hence, between Zi Daoyang and Mo Xie, a grand battle with their lives at stake was already destined. But now, both of them had no intentions to clash with the other. They were preparing to first seize the inheritance from Qin Wentian’s demonic beast—and Zhan Peng, who was still currently comprehending it—before settling that match on their own terms.
"Since you’re already injured, why don’t you quickly leave first?" Mo Xie swept a glance over to Zi Daoyang, the coldness in his eyes giving off an extremely dangerous feeling. His aura gushed forth, like that of a devil, as the darkness tribulation force circulated around his body.
"Members of the Violet Sect, retreat with me." Zi Daoyang was extremely decisive. He waved his hand, and within moments, all the geniuses from the Violet Sect gathered together and made to retreat, opening up a space on the battlefield for Mo Xie’s forces.
"Daoyang gege." Xiao Lengyue stood beside Zi Daoyang as she asked in a low voice, "Are we giving up just like that?"
"It’s I who underestimated them. Even if I fail to obtain the inheritance, I can only blame myself. If I continue to participate now, Mo Xie might make a move against me and the Violet Sect. It’s better to retreat for now and let them fight it out instead," Zi Daoyang calmly explained, "Sooner or later, there will be a battle between me and Mo Xie. The portion of inheritances that we both obtained will eventually be gathered within the body of a single person."
The members of the Evil Palace surrounded those of the Qin Sect. Mo Xie turned his eyes onto Qin Wentian. The God’s Hand was already shattered. Earlier, that sword strike that Qin Wentian had used to heavily injure Zi Daoyang had utilized the Vanquishing Immortal Swordplay. Qin Wentian’s combat prowess had already weakened, and that demonic beast had also been injured by Zi Daoyang beforehand. This meant that Mo Xie’s true opponents in this fight were only Qing`er and Nanfeng Yunxi.
"Qin Wentian, the circumstances are not advantageous for us. We should consider retreating," Nanfeng Yunxi transmitted her voice over. Qin Wentian silently nodded his head;the circumstances were truly getting more and more disadvantageous by the second. Many of their members were injured from the clash with the Violet Sect, and now that the Evil Palace arrived, they, who were fresh and uninjured, possessed an overwhelming advantage.
"Those of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect. I spared all of you earlier, yet you lot still refuse to heed my warnings, and you’ve even joined the Evil Palace." Qin Wentian swept his gaze over to Gusu Tianqi and the others as his eyes gleamed with coldness. The chill within was so cold that it actually caused the experts from the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect to feel a sense of pressure, as trepidation filled their hearts. Back then, the memory of Que Tianyi being crushed resurfaced in their minds.
"I was the one who recruited them into the Evil Palace, to give them a chance for revenge," Mo Xie said with cold arrogance. He pointed his finger at Little Rascal. "Give me the vile beast, and I will spare you today."
"ROAR!" A rumbling roar thundered from Little Rascal, its eyes gleaming with balefulness.
"Stop dreaming," Qin Wentian coldly replied.
"Since that’s the case, I will have to act myself then." Mo Xie’s constellation appeared as the devilish tribulation force intensified. His finger pierced forward as a dark golden ray of calamitous light erupted out, containing boundless might akin to terrifying flood dragons that rushed towards the experts of the Qin Sect. His attack contained a startling destructive power that could tear apart the sky.
The ancient phoenix behind Nanfeng Yunxi gave a shrill cry. It manifested numerous smaller phoenixes that shot outwards, dying the area with a red glow. They smashed into the dark golden flood dragons, causing thunderous booms to echo from the impact.
From afar, Zi Daoyang spectated the battle. He hadn’t yet departed. However at this moment, Zi Daoyang suddenly turned his head and glanced behind him as his eyes gleamed with sharpness. A moment later, a vast army of experts could be seen rushing over, exuding powerful auras.
"When did the City of Ancient Emperors have a power like this?" Zi Daoyang turned to Xiao Lengyue. Could it be that this power had risen up during the time he was comprehending the inheritance of the Brahma Heavenly Emperor?
"Mhm, I’m not sure. There shouldn’t be any recent power established that has so many experts." Xiao Lengyue shook her head, she didn’t understand as well.
At this moment, the members of the Evil Palace who had initially prepared to rush at the members of the Qin Sect, suddenly paused. Mo Xie turned his gaze over, his eyes gleaming with coldness.
"Reinforcements from our sect have arrived!" At this moment, disciples from the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect of the Evil Palace called out excitedly.
Gusu Tianqi’s gaze flickered. He’d also realized that this army of experts were people from his Eastern Sage Immortal Sect. Were they sent here by his master?
If not, how could it be possible for such a powerful force to appear here in the City of Ancient Emperors all of a sudden?
"People from the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect?" The crowd soon came back to their senses. After which, their attention focused on Qin Wentian. Earlier, Qin Wentian killed Que Tianyi, a personal disciple of the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor in front of his face. It would seem like these people were here for the sake of revenge. How humiliated the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor must have felt then? Apparently, this immortal emperor hadn’t been able to calm his anger—to think that a junior actually dared to shame him like that?
"Seems like his majesty has issued a command. We will soon have our revenge." Within the Evil Palace, an expert of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect stepped out, intending to join the army of experts. However, Mo Xie stretched his arm out and caught hold of him by the neck, hoisting him up into the air as he coldly asked, "You’ve already joined my Evil Palace, are you planning to change sides?"
"Mo Xie, I was originally a member of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect!" the expert called out in shock.
—kacha!— Mo Xie’s fingers squeezed, crushing that expert’s throat. The rest of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect’s members who’d joined his Evil Palace felt their hearts trembling at his actions.
Mo Xie turned to them, "I won’t stop your Eastern Sage Immortal Sect from having your revenge. However, the rules in the City of Ancient Emperors are different compared to the outside world. In here, since you’ve all joined my Evil Palace, you can only quit after you obtain my permission. If you try to defect to join another group of forces without my approval, I shall kill all without mercy."
"Who are you?" At this moment, the army of experts from the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect had arrived. They stared at Mo Xie and coldly asked.
"Sect leader of the Evil Palace, Mo Xie," Mo Xie emotionlessly replied. "Don’t assume that you have the advantage in numbers. If you touch on my taboo by interfering with my benefits, do you lot believe you’ll still have a chance to retreat alive?"
"How arrogant." The four leading the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect had ice-cold countenances.
"You can all try it if you want to test me." The devilish tribulation force intensified around Mo Xie, as he stared calmly at the army of experts. However, one of the four leaders of the army spoke, "This time around, we are here by the command of the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor to take Qin Wentian’s life. All other matters can be discussed after we succeed in taking his life."
"That’s fine as well. Killing Qin Wentian is the command issued by his majesty. We will allow this Mo Xie to show off his arrogance for now." The army of experts from the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect separated into four groups as they moved out in a ring shape, surrounding Qin Wentian and the members of the Qin Sect.
Qin Wentian’s expression turned incredibly unsightly to behold. This was adding frost on top of the snow. After that earlier clash with the Violet Sect, Not only did they need to defend against attacks from the Evil Palace, they still had to face off against the army of experts sent by the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect. Because he’d killed Que Tianyi, the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor had actually sent out an army of over three hundred experts into the City of Ancient Emperors. How ruthless.
The Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor had steeled his heart, determined to take Qin Wentian’s life.
At this moment, one of the four groups soared into the air. A total of eighty-one experts were all radiating intense light as the energy from their constellations filled the sky. The man in the lead was the core of this formation—he stood at the highest point in the air, infused by the strength from the other eighty experts, which granted him a supreme and unparalleled might.
The eyes of everyone narrowed as they observed what came next. Within a radius of ten miles, the entire area sparkled with boundless runes. The runic light transformed into golden threads of light that enveloped their location, sealing it completely.
The might that they generated created sword runes that contained boundless slaughtering intent filled with pure destructiveness.
Xu Ruxue lashed her whip outwards. Her whip stretched endlessly, blasting directly onto the screen of golden light.
chi chi… Terrifying ripples of destruction born from the impact instantly tore her whip into pieces.
In addition, the sword runes were still multiplying in number. The eighty-one experts were joining forces to seal the entire area, giving Qin Wentian no chance to escape.
"It looks like old dog Eastern Sage is truly going all-out to kill me." Qin Wentian’s countenance was like ice. An expert from one of the groups coldly spoke, "His majesty commanded us to kill Qin Wentian, Jun Mengchen, and Zi Qingxuan. We are not to harm Princess Qing`er, and as long as we don’t kill the other experts of the Qin Sect, it isn’t a problem even if we heavily injure them."
The Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor naturally had his own considerations when he gave out the command. Qin Wentian and his fellow sect members had destroyed his face during the immortal banquet held by the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect. His prestige had taken another blow when they rejected his offer to take them on as disciples. After that, they’d safely retreated due to the interference of the Thousand Transformations Emperor Lord. These three eyesores had to be killed off for sure.
Qing`er was being backed by an immortal emperor who was stronger than him—naturally, she couldn’t be touched.
As for the others, since this place was the City of Ancient Emperors, it was better not to go too far by killing them. For the sake of caution, the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor was only allowing his disciples to heavily injure these people at most. If not, and if his sect wantonly killed a number of disciples and descendants from immortal kings and emperors, the graveness of the following consequences wasn’t something he could endure.
"Qin Wentian, in accordance to the rules of the City of Ancient Emperors, we won’t use immortal-ranked weapons to kill you. However, if you are the one who takes out an immortal weapon first, more than three hundred of us will instantly use our immortal weapons as well," someone declared. The Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor had issued a death command. Qin Wentian’s name was foremost on their kill list, and they were extremely well-prepared for all circumstances.
To better put it, Qin Wentian would find it hard to escape even if he was given wings. He would die here today for sure.
Mo Xie stood by the side, and his dark golden eyes flashed with an expression of interest. Who would have thought that even before he could act, these people from the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect would be doing the work for him? This formation contained the strength of eighty-one people—it was undoubtedly extremely terrifying.
As expected of the advantage held for those of the same sect. They could all cultivate common linkage formation techniques from their sect to boost their power!
