Chapter 2313: God’s Ancient Nidus
“What are the opportunities inside the Ghost’s home planet? Why has Zhang Ruochen’s cultivation suddenly increased so much?” A six-horned deity revealed his divine shadow and asked.
The gods couldn’t figure out what was happening inside the Ghost’s home planet, but they could sense that Zhang Ruochen wasn’t the same as before. His strength had increased too quickly.
When Rayan, King of Devala, the Rakshasa’s number one divine kingdom, revealed his divine shadow, he inquired, “Zhang Ruochen has condensed the Grade Two Saintwill, and it’s formed from the Saintwill of five different paths. In this world, he is unbeatable. “Has he already gotten the chance of the
God’s Ancient Nidus?”
The gods of the Ghost fell silent. The realm of the divine became deathly silent.
Ghost Lord’s eyes were cold, and his anger soared to the sky.
The Fukurokuju Statue said, “He hasn’t gotten the opportunity yet, but he’s passed the test. He’s qualified to get the opportunity.”
Even with the wisdom of the gods, it was hard to understand what Fukurokuju meant.
Zhang Ruochen had passed the test, but he still couldn’t get the opportunity?
Wargod Bloodximius was in a good mood. He asked, “Reverend, what exactly is the opportunity in God’s Ancient Nidus? Zhang Ruochen has already fused five Paths and cultivated the Grade Two Saintwill, but he still can’t get it.”
The Fukurokuju Statue said, “This story started 30,000 years ago. Back then, Great Emperor Fengdu woke up two Divine beasts that had slept for countless years in God’s Ancient Nidus. The Intergold Tiger and the Swastika Seiryu were both Archaic God’s Candidate.
“Great Emperor Fengdu wanted to suppress them and take them as mounts, but he was stopped by a powerful will deep in God’s Ancient Nidus. That will told Great Emperor Fengdu that tigers are the kings of all beasts, and dragons are the kings of all spirits. If you take them as your mounts and suppress
them as your slaves, you will definitely suffer a backlash in the future.”
Hearing this, the gods of the Infernal Court smiled awkwardly.
What kind of joke was this? Someone actually dared to threaten the number one elite of the Ghost, Great Emperor Fengdu? Even if it was the master of the Celestial Palace who threatened, Great Emperor Fengdu might not take it to heart.
“The Great Emperor will definitely not be afraid of this dragon and tiger,” a Ghost God said disdainfully.
The Fukurokuju Statue was silent for a moment before saying, “In fact, Great Emperor Fengdu did not take the Intergold Tiger and the Swastika Seiryu as his mounts in the end. I don’t know what agreement he reached with the will in the depths of God’s Ancient Nidus.
“In the end, Great Emperor Fengdu brought the two beasts back to the Infernal Court and handed them over to me. I was asked to find suitable young talents at the Celestial-Hunting Festival and be the guide of the two beasts to help them integrate into this era. The Intergold Tiger is the opportunity of
the Ghost’s home planet.”
The gods were in a daze after hearing this and were shocked.
With Great Emperor Fengdu’s paramount might, he actually had to compromise with a will in the depths of God’s Ancient Nidus?
Of course, most of the gods didn’t think that Great Emperor Fengdu was afraid of anything. They only felt that it should be like what Fukurokuju said. Great Emperor Fengdu had reached some unknown agreement with the will in the depths of God’s Ancient Nidus.
‘What made the gods even more shocked was why two young geniuses had to be the guides of the two Divine beasts?
Wouldn’t it be better if Great Emperor Fengdu and Fukurokuju personally guided them?
Besides, with the cultivation and wisdom of the Divine beasts, would it be difficult to integrate into this era? Why did they need guides?
In the deity realm of Wargod Bloodximius, there were Wargod Bloodximius, Lord Ming, Blood Empress, Bloodlucius, and many other deities of the Bloodysky Clan gathered.
They were all congratulating Wargod Bloodximius and Blood Empress. After all, whether Zhang Ruochen had cultivated the Grade Two Saintwill or become the guide of Intergold Tiger, it was a joyous occasion.
Wargod Bloodximius waved his hand, “The deity has already said that Zhang Ruochen has only passed the test and hasn’t become the guide yet,” he said. “In my opinion, since the Intergold Tiger is an Archaic God’s Candidate, it won’t easily choose its own guide. It must have set conditions for Zhang
Blood Empress asked, “What kind of place is God’s Ancient Nidus? Why does the Great Emperor Fengdu have to be afraid?”
Wargod Bloodximius’s expression turned serious as he said, “Everyone has cultivated to become a god. Logically speaking, there is no place in the entire universe that you can not go. However, there are some forbidden places that even gods can not enter.”
The gods listened attentively. After all, there were some secrets that even gods could not know. Only a magnate like Wargod Bloodximius could come into contact with them.
“In the universe, there are five prehistoric civilization ruins. Those gods who haven’t survived the Yuanhui Tribulation, don’t go there. God’s Ancient Nidus is one of them. It has been preserved since the prehistoric era, and it is a very dangerous place.” Wargod Bloodximius added.
Prehistoric civilization referred to the civilizations that existed before the birth of the Celestial Court and the ten clans of the Infernal Court. There were no records in the history books, and only some clues could be found from the prehistoric civilization ruins.
Some gods had explored and discovered the ruins of prehistoric civilization. It was generally believed that there had been a great apocalypse in the universe before the 50,000 Yuanhui period.
All prehistoric creatures had been wiped out.
Therefore, traces left behind before the 50,000 Yuanhui period were called prehistoric ruins.
The so-called eternal and indestructible Macroworld was not a prehistoric civilization. It referred to a Macroworld that had survived 10,000 Yuanhui periods but had not been destroyed. Such a Macroworld was already very rare.
The so-called ancient civilizations, such as the Thousand -Star Civilization, the Tianchu Civilization… and so on, were not prehistoric civilizations either. They referred to a Macroworld that had been eternal and indestructible but later encountered a catastrophe like Kunlun, when the world was
destroyed, some of them survived and had to move to a secret realm in the universe to hide.
Hence, there were strong and weak ancient civilizations.
The key point was how many inheritances the ancient civilization had left behind? Were they heavily injured? Were there supreme elites who survived?
That was why the prehistoric ruins that survived the great destruction were extremely rare. All of them were extremely special places that even gods could not enter.
“Since the Intergold Tiger was brought back to the Infernal Court by Great Emperor Fengdu, then its guide should be chosen from the Ghost,” said the Ghost Lord in the Fane of Destiny.
Wargod Bloodximius sneered, “The Ghost hasn’t produced a Supreme Saint who can pass the test in 30,000 years. Does Intergold Tiger have to wait for another 30,000 years? Or three Yuanhui periods?”
The Ghost Lord wanted to say that Xu had a chance to do it.
But seeing that Xu was being suppressed by Zhang Ruochen, he couldn’t say anything,
Asurenda Barasingha said, “Anyone can be the guide of the Intergold Tiger, but not Zhang Ruochen. This child has a deep connection with the gods of Kunlun, Guanghan, and even the Celestial Court. His purpose in entering the Infernal Court is impure. He will most likely rebel in the future.
“In my opinion, we should let Lan Ying, Yan Huangtu, Luo Shengtian, and Wujiang give it a try. The great opportunity must be firmly in the hands of the cultivators of the Infernal Court. It can’t be taken away by a cultivator of the Celestial Court.
“Lan Ying is a Divine Fetus. His chances of passing the trial of Intergold Tiger should be very high.”
Although the gods didn’t know what level the Intergold Tiger and the Swastika Seiryu were at, they were able to make Great Emperor Fengdu compromise. There must be something extraordinary about them.
Moreover, controlling them was equivalent to controlling the bridge of communication with God’s Ancient Nidus.
If any force could get the support of God’s Ancient Nidus, their authority in the Infernal Court would be greatly increased.
Some gods of the Nether Clan immediately supported Asurenda Barasingha and said, “Zhang Ruochen’s goal of breaking into the Ghost’s home planet is to save a Celestial Captive of Guanghan. It can be seen that he is still connected to Guanghan and could betray it at any time. If he gets the support of
God’s Ancient Nidus, the consequences will be unimaginable.
“Making Wujiang the guide of the Intergold Tiger won’t be such a risk. Besides, Wujiang’s cultivation of the Saintwill is only one step away from reaching Grade Two.
“Since Zhang Ruochen can use the power of the Intergold Tiger to fuse with the Grade Two Saintwill, Wujiang must be able to do it too.
“Reverend, I think we should tell Wujiang and the others the secret of the Ghost’s home planet so that they can compete fairly. Zhang Ruochen is just lucky and has the upper hand. It doesn’t mean that he’s the only choice of the Intergold Tiger.”
Wargod Bloodximius roared, “You guys are crazy. For the sake of the Intergold Tiger and the God’s Ancient Nidus, you’re blaming Zhang Ruochen, a junior.”
Ghost Lord said sternly, “Wargod Bloodximius, you can’t change the fact that Zhang Ruochen went to the Ghost’s home planet to save the Celestial Captive of Guanghan. He killed countless spirits of the Ghost and injured many Ghost Supreme Saints. Isn’t this an act against the Infernal Court?”
“That’s not right, is it? Zhang Ruochen was invited by Xu to the Ghost’s home planet to fight to the death. Then he was attacked by many Ghost and Bone Clan Supreme Saints in the Great Perfection stage of the Hundred-Shackle Realm. He had been fighting back passively, desperately trying to survive.
Since when is it against the Infernal Court?” said Lord Ming.
Lord Ming laughed and added, “Unfortunately, the Ghost is too weak. They gathered so many elites, but their home planet was destroyed. Even their opportunities were taken away. Who’s to blame? Poor weaklings.”
Ghost Lord sneered, his eyes turning cold. “It’s pointless to argue. Feel free to be self-assured. No matter how talented Zhang Ruochen is, the Mystic Eye of Myriad Realms will not let him leave the Battlefield of Celestial-Hunting alive if he turns his heart to Celestial Captive and goes against the Infernal
Court. I’ll see if you can still laugh then.”
Wargod Bloodximius, Lord Ming, and Blood Empress all fell silent.
They were confident in Zhang Ruochen’s strength and talent. However, they were not confident in Zhang Ruochen’s actions and thoughts.
He had grown up in the human world. Would he really return to the Infernal Court?
“Let him go,” said Zhang Ruochen.
Ming, who was standing on the Ghost City’s wall, felt a sharp pain all over his body as he looked into Zhang Ruochen’s sharp sword-like eyes. It was as if he had been struck by a large sword.
“How is this possible? How could Zhang Ruochen defeat the seventh brother?” Ming thought. He felt extremely depressed and uncomfortable. His confidence and pride had been trampled on by Zhang Ruochen.
He had no other choice but to exchange with Zhang Ruochen.
Xu was the number one elite of the Ghost. If he was defeated, who could stop Zhang Ruochen?
He could only hope that Zhang Ruochen’s anger would be quelled as soon as possible.
“You can’t give the Supreme Saint Manjian to him,” said Pink Skull.
‘Ming was stopped by Pink Skull. “Zhang Ruochen, I know you and the Supreme Saint Manjian are very close,” said Pink Skull. Her pink skeletal hand grabbed the Supreme Saint Manjian’s shoulder and stared at Zhang Ruochen. She added, “You’re not going to stand by and watch him die. If you want him to
live, you must first do something for me.”
Zhang Ruochen narrowed his eyes. His gaze was as sharp as a knife. “Can’t you see that Xu’s right under my feet? I’ll kill him like butchering a farm animal.”
Pink Skull laughed. “Do you really think that you can do as you please on the Battlefield of Celestial-Hunting? Xu was the most outstanding Supreme Saint of the Ghost who had been born for a thousand years. He had a high chance of becoming a god. For a Celestial Captive, you killed a future God of the
Infernal Court. Even if the gods could tolerate you, the Mystic Eye of Myriad Realms would kill you.”
“You want to kill me, but I can’t kill you?” Zhang Ruochen sneered.
Pink Skull nodded and said, “That’s right. You’re no different from those poor Celestial Captives. You’re our prey.
“If you really want to save the Supreme Saint Manjian, capture all the Supreme Saints of the three upper clans outside the Ghost’s home planet and bring them to me to trade with me.
“This is your only chance.”
Zhang Ruochen looked up at the sky and vaguely sensed the presence of Pan Ruo, Lord Sinluo, and the others.
“Twould have let Xu go alive, but you have successfully angered me,” Zhang Ruochen said.
Pink Skull was taken aback when she heard this. Her mind was filled with dreadful thoughts. She was about to put a stop to him.
Zhang Ruochen activated the 10 million Divine Marks in his left leg. He stomped down heavily, crushing Xu’s Astral Form into pieces and turning it into a black ghost cloud.
The world shook. All the cultivators were shocked by Zhang Ruochen’s actions.
He… he really dared to kill Xu?
Xu had the Primordial Ghost Emperor-Level Neverwilt Physique. Naturally, he wouldn’t die so easily. Billions of ghost fog flowed rapidly and gathered in the center, condensing into an Astral Form again.
“Zhang Ruochen, if you dare to kill me, there will be no place for you in the Infernal Court. Even Wargod Bloodximius won’t be able to protect you… You… Ah…”
Zhang Ruochen used the Power of Dimension to grab Xu again. He condensed a huge palm print of the Divine Purification Flame and destroyed his Astral Form again.
Xu was obviously not truly immortal. Every time his Astral Form was destroyed, his body would weaken greatly. The speed at which he could regenerate his Astral Form would slow down.
“Saint Devourer swallowed him for me. Use his Ghost Qi to let the Ampliofruit mature as soon as possible.”
Countless Saint Devourer vines rushed out of Zhang Ruochen’s back. They spread into the ghost fog and absorbed Xu’s power crazily.
The Ghost Supreme Saints in the Ghost city were all shocked. Zhang Ruochen was really audacious. He would do anything.
“Zhang Ruochen, do you know what you’re doing? Do you believe that I can kill the Supreme Saint Manjian now?” Pink Skull said.
“If you dare to kill him, I’ll break every bone in your body and feed it to Huang Tian when I enter the Ghost City,” said Zhang Ruochen.
Zhang Ruochen left the Saint Devourer behind and flew upon his ten golden wings. He revealed the Saint Aspect of the Immovable Wisdom King, which was thousands of miles tall, and stomped heavily on the Ghost city below.
The array’s inscriptions of the Ghost city formed a bow!-shaped light shield to block the attack.
However, a lot of the array’s inscriptions had been broken. Countless buildings in the Ghost city had collapsed, and all the souls were crying in fear. Even the Supreme Saint was terrified.
Once Zhang Ruochen broke through his defense, the consequences would be unimaginable.
