Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 868
Saint Origin Palace
’’My god, one billion high grade True Meta Stones. That's equivalent to one billion Saint Rank Restoration Pills. Jiang Chen is truly generous to give one billion of the fortune. This is considered a huge fortune to the Demon Race.’’
’’He is truly a man of heroic spirit. We haven't gotten any treasures in the trip to Void Triangular Domain but this one billion high grade True Meta Stones is really rewarding.’’
’’This Jiang Chen is a man with audacity and heroic demeanour. It is worth it to establish a relationship with a man like him. I like him.’’
The experts of Demon Race changed their views on Jiang Chen after the one billion worth of high grade True Meta Stones had been taken out. It was a billion worth of fortune! Who would be willing to donate it to someone?
’’Great. Demon Race won't be polite then.’’
Lang Xingtian wasn't a bashful person. He instantly kept the spatial ring when it reached him. Given his status and identity, he wouldn't even look at any ordinary Sixth Grade Minor Saint, let alone responding to them. Jiang Chen, however, was different. He was able to see the potential in Jiang Chen. A potential that was similar to the Greatest Saint that had completely changed the circumstances of Pure Land. Building a relationship with such a man would bring tremendous benefits to Demon Race in the future.
Moments later, Lang Xingtian and Peacock King turned to Big Yellow. Their eyes sparkled when they realized that Big Yellow had advanced to the Fifth Grade Minor Saint.
’’You are worthy to be called the divine Beast Bloodline. Your advancement can't be defies common sense.’’
Lang Xingtian nodded and praised. It made him more determined to nurture Big Yellow.
Far away, the party of Heavenly Leopard King wasn't looking good. They initially thought that they were going to watch an exciting show. None of them had expected such an outcome would take place.
’’Elder, I didn't imagine that Jiang Chen and the dog will give out a billion high grade True Meta Stones. Now, many people have dramatically changed their views on them. Before this dog went to that domain, he was still a Third Grade Minor Demon Saint. After returning, he had advanced to a Fifth Grade Minor Demon Saint. His incredible speed of advancement had surely reaffirmed the patriarch and Peacock King's decision in nurturing him. This is unfavorable to us.’’
A Great Saint said.
’’It doesn't matter. Three days later will be the day of the opening of the Suspended Tower. At that time, we will find ways to get rid of that dog.’’
Heavenly Leopard King said before he turned and left.
That night, Peacock King had personally prepared a site of cultivation for Jiang Chen. It was situated in a very quiet and secluded courtyard where Yan Chenyu, Dan King and Tyrant resided. They were brought here by Golden Fur Lion King before this. They had seen everything that happened during the day while frequently wiping their cold sweat because of the worries and fear for Jiang Chen, but Jiang Chen turned out to be fine in the end.
Yan Chenyu leaped into Jiang Chen's embrace immediately. She was filled with anxiety throughout the day. She wasn't able to relieve her anxiety until when she saw Jiang Chen was safe.
’’Okay, okay. Aren't I as good as new now?’’
Jiang Chen patted Yan Chenyu's shoulder.
’’Greetings, Peacock King.’’
Dan King and Tyrant greeted Peacock King together. Tyrant had a warmer tone as this wasn't the first time he saw Peacock King. Although Dan King was one of the overlords in divine Continent, he couldn't be compared to a supreme expert of Pure Land, like Peacock King. He never imagined that he would have the chance to meet Peacock King's true self in his life.
’’You all don't need to be overly courteous to old Peacock. We are one family.’’
Big Yellow said. If it was some random person who said such words, he certainly would be slapped incredibly hard.
’’Big Yellow, I want to inform you that the patriarch had decided to fully nurture you, but this will attract the inhibition of Heavenly Leopard King. Three days later will be the day of the opening of the Suspended Tower. If you can perform well during that time, you will be able to gain a stable status in Demon Race. Otherwise, you will encounter more problems in the future in Demon Race.’’
Peacock King said solemnly to Big Yellow.
’’Suspended Tower? What's that place?’’
Big Yellow asked.
’’It's the Saint Tower of Demon Race that was inherited many years ago. All the geniuses of Demon Race will be able to enter the tower in search for beneficial rewards once a year. There are a total of nine floors in the tower. A great deal of treasure that belongs to Demon Race is hidden inside the tower. There are even some inheritance left by the ancient ancestors of Demon Race. People who are able to obtain those inheritances are people with great luck, people acknowledged by the ancestors. Those geniuses will naturally be nurtured by Demon Race. However, until now, no one was able to enter the ninth floor, including us. No one knows what's hidden on the ninth floor. We won't demand you to enter the ninth floor, but you have to at least perform well.’’
Peacock King said, introducing the Suspended Tower to Big Yellow.
Jiang Chen narrowed both of his eyes. Today, Big Yellow giving 500 million high grade True Meta Stones to Demon Race had created a sense of pleasantness in many of them. However, he knew that in order to gain a firm status in Demon Race, Big Yellow had to obtain an inheritance in the Suspended Tower.
’’Big Yellow, keep it up.’’
Yan Chenyu waved her fists at Big Yellow.
’’Peacock King, it seems Demon Race isn't united internally.’’
Jiang Chen said with a smile.
’’That's right. There are basically two parties in Demon Race. The first party is the bloodline of Heavenly Wolf King, he is now the patriarch of Demon Race. The other party is the bloodline of Heavenly Leopard King. His influence is on par with our patriarch. He had longed for the position of patriarch all this time. Their bloodline does not get along with patriarch's bloodline. Currently, the patriarch wants to nurture Big Yellow. Heavenly Leopard King will naturally try to stop him. If Big Yellow did not produce an outstanding result in the Suspended Tower this time, it will become an excuse for Heavenly Leopard King.’’
Peacock King said. He didn't feel the need to hide anything from Jiang Chen. The inner circle of Demon Race wasn't a secret. Many outsiders knew about it.
’’Don't worry. Master Dog will be able to step into the ninth floor of the tower.’’
Big Yellow said proudly.
’’Motherf*cker! Can you not boast excessively? No one had ever entered the ninth floor before. Do you think you can break the record?’’
Peacock King couldn't stand it and kicked Big Yellow's butt.
’’Peacock King, there is one thing I don't understand.’’
Jiang Chen said.
’’What is it?’’
Peacock King turned to Jiang Chen.
’’The eight great families of Pure Land are the strongest forces in Saint Origin World. According to the facts, the strongest experts among them are supposed to be Ninth Grade Great Saints, but today, the highest grade I saw was a Sixth Grade Great Saint. I wonder why that is so.’’
Jiang Chen asked. This doubt had been bugging him. During that time when he dominated the world, he knew how strong the eight families were. Sixth Grade Great Saints were nothing at that time, but currently, all the patriarchs were at this grade and they were considered the strongest beings.
’’It seems you don't know the existence of Saint Origin Palace yet.’’
Peacock King continued. ’’But I'm not surprised. Very few people know about this except for the eight families of Pure Land.’’
’’Saint Origin Palace? What's that place?’’
Jiang Chen frowned. He had never heard of this place before.
’’That year, when the Greatest Saint slashed open the gates of Immortal World, it opened up a new path for the Great Saints. At that time, many powerful experts from the eight families rose to the Immortal World to become Immortals. Before they left Saint Origin World, they created a spatial zone, a small world. They wanted to use the name of Saint Origin World. Thus they named it Saint Origin Palace. That is a world created by Immortals. The density of the heaven and earth Yuan Force in that small world is very great. Those Immortals from the eight great families had also set up a grand formation on that world, allowing it to absorb different kinds of powerful Yuan Force from the void. Over around a hundred years later, Saint Origin Palace had become a sacred land of cultivation in Saint Origin World. It is also a supreme land.’’
Peacock King paused for a while before he continued. ’’Saint Origin Palace has brought a lot of convenience to the eight families. All experts who are above Seventh Grade Great Saint are able to enter the Saint Origin Palace for cultivation. There are also the rare geniuses of the eight families, those young Great Saints enters the Saint Origin Palace to pursue a more advanced cultivation. The Sky Ranking of Pure Land isn't a correct representation of the young generation of Saint Origin World. The truly monstrous geniuses are all present in Saint Origin Palace.’’
After listening to Peacock King's introduction of the Saint Origin Palace, Jiang Chen felt very astonished. His initial thought was that the eight families of Pure Land was the greatest forces across Saint Origin World. He wouldn't have thought that there was a more advanced world named Saint Origin Palace. It seemed many things had happened after he had fallen.
’’So this is why...I see.’’
Jiang Chen nodded. Despite his astonishment, he finally understood why there wasn't an expert ranked Seventh Grade Great Saint or higher in Pure Land.
’’I have gone to Saint Origin Palace before for cultivation. The palace is divided into eight different sections. All eight of them are named according to the families. The competition among the eight families are fierce. Although it isn't obvious in Pure Land, in Saint Origin Palace, Desolate Palace is ranked number one given the quick development in their family.’’
Peacock King said.
’’Once there is a gap of difference among the eight families, it will grow over time quietly. When it had reached a certain point, the strongest family will start to influence the smaller families or engulf them one by one. It seems Desolate Family have a wild ambition.’’
Jiang Chen said with a smile.
’’That's right. Whether it is in Pure Land or Saint Origin Palace, it had been too peaceful over the years.’’
Peacock King looked at Jiang Chen in enthusiasm. It was obvious that the boring peace had been broken because of Jiang Chen's presence. The circumstances of Saint Origin World would grow more chaotic as time goes by.
’’Pure Land, Saint Origin Palace.’’
Jiang Chen muttered. The existence of Saint Origin Palace was an eye opener for Jiang Chen. Pure Land was no longer the highest existence in this world. He longed to return to his pinnacle state like in his previous life. This meant that he was going to clash with the experts in Saint Origin Palace in order to achieve his goal.
Of course, since Jiang Chen had already made the five families his enemies, it was only a matter of time before Saint Origin Palace was involved.
’’Alright. You two have just came back from Void Triangular Domain. I will leave you two here for now. Big Yellow, remember to prepare well for the Suspended Tower hunt three days later. Don't disgrace me when the time comes, or else, I will peel your skin off.’’
Peacock King said sternly to Big Yellow.
