Beastmaster of the Ages - Chapter 1449
This was the first time Tianming had entered the ninth level of the Violetglory Pagoda. Not even the Xuanyuan Dragon Sect, with its twenty-five-million-strong Ninedragon Army, could provide something like this. There were a hundred caeli imperius here—fifty from the Violetglory Imperium and fifty from the Divineglory Dynasty, which was a fair arrangement. In the real world, the two major forces must possess more caeli imperius.
Both the Divineglory Dynasty and Violetglory Imperium are giant forces on par with the celestial orderians. With that thought, Tianming stepped into the ninth level of the pagoda.
“The Violetglory Imperium’s Aster Sovereign was born millions of years ago and lived to the ripe age of 3,851 years old. His caelum imperius has guided generations of Violetglory Imperium disciples on the road of cultivation. After the establishment of the wondersky realm, the Violetglory Imperium offered the Aster Sovereign’s caelum imperius for the cultivation of all on Violetglory Star. Only number one disciples are qualified to pay respects to him!”
Following the wondersky fairy’s explanation, an enormous violet star suddenly appeared in the passage in front of him. Tianming quickly approached it. His caelum experienced the same shock from the star as it would from a nova source.
On the violet star were the faint outlines of a mouth, nose, eyes, and ears. It was the face of a profound old man with a sense of antiquity, vicissitudes, and a wisdom that suggested he could see beyond the facade of life. Just a glance made Tianming realize what a vast difference there was between the Solar stage and the sovereign’s cultivation level.
“Descendent, fate has brought us together to comprehend life,” the old voice echoed in Tianming’s ears.
“Senior!” Tianming truly felt as if the old man was alive. Even if his vita and terra had dissipated, the remnants of the old man that was left behind in his caelum were far deeper than any regular caeli.
There was a deafening roar as countless voices brushed past his ears, speaking at the same time, like millions of flies were flapping their wings. Light and shadow flickered before his eyes as figure after figure flitted by.
When he crashed into the violet star, the light instantly engulfed him as his caelum collided with the Aster Sovereign’s. In that instant, For a time, he seemed to have burst into a real world. Before his eyes was a bustling palace. Just as he was taking in his surroundings, the sound of a baby’s cry came from deep within the palace. It originated from millions of years ago.
“The Aster Sovereign is born!”
Everything was so real. It all began from his birth.
“I’ll accompany you on your journey.” Tianming took a deep breath.
On this day, the number of transmission stones flying throughout Orderia increased by a hundred times. Everyone was reporting the same thing: the new myriad sect ranking has been released! The complete ranking was displayed on the Skyward Stele in the Voidsky Realm, replacing the previous imperial star ranking. The myriad star ranking was even more eye-catching now. As soon as the new ranking was out, the nearby Myriaddragon Mountains became the most busy place.
“After ten thousand years, the Xuanyuan Dragon Sect has once again reached the top of the ranking!”
This was the myriad sect ranking’s most sensational change. The Xuanyuan Dragon Sect had overtaken the Dreamless Celestial Palace. And what did they rely on? There was no doubt it was the return of the Veildragon Palace. Did this mean the Sky Palace acquiesced in their return and recognized them as part of the Xuanyuan Dragon Sect? The answer was obvious.
The Myriaddragon Mountains were filled with a cacophony of voices. Reaching the top of the myriad sect ranking was the dream of all the Xuanyuan Dragon Sect members. However, they could not muster the slightest bit of joy. Their position on the ranking was reliant on the Veildragon Palace returning against their wishes. Additionally, the Myriaddragon Mountains were in fact under the celestial orderians’ control. On the other hand, the people from the Veildragon Palace were elated. It almost seemed as if they were really part of the Xuanyuan Dragon Sect. Because of the new myriad sect ranking, the Myriaddragon Mountains were divided—some rejoiced, while others expressed indifference. It was a juxtaposition of ice and fire.
Tianming left the wondersky realm and noticed the change in the Myriaddragon Mountains.
“Why does the power of the nova source feel stronger?” Tianming asked in confusion.
“The new myriad sect ranking was released and the Xuanyuan Dragon Sect won first place. The Sky Palace revised the distribution of nova source, increasing the nova source within the territory of Xuanyuan Dragon Sect and reducing it within the Dreamless Celestial Nation,” said Lingfeng.
“Didn’t the Empyrean Sword Sect say that the Sky Palace wouldn’t change the distribution of nova source unless it’s to weaken the Xuanyuan Dragon Sect?” Tianming asked in confusion.
Lingfeng and Xiaoxiao both shook their heads. They didn’t quite understand either, nor had Tianming’s cockroaches in the Sky Palace seen anything. Up until now, the Sky Palace remained a mystery.
“I don’t know if it’s good or bad that the nova source has temporarily increased,” Xiaoxiao said with some worry.
“Brother Tianming, will Qingyu get here soon?” Lingfeng softly asked.
“She should be here soon. My cockroaches are slowly spreading out. I’ll be the first to know if anything happens,” said Tianming.
They wanted to see her as soon as possible to confirm her situation.
“What about the Azuresoul Palace?” Tianming asked.
“They’re now ranked thirty-first, going up several places,” Xiaoxiao replied.
That meant there was more nova source in the Azurecloud Continent. The Azurecloud Divine Tree might bear more fruit in the future.
Was having more nova source a good or bad thing? Tianming didn’t know either. But at least it would save him a lot of time.
After their brief conversation, he immediately entered a state of cultivation. Having cultivated with caeli imperius for a period of time, he had immensely gained. His Lifesbane Will had rapidly grown and had undergone a complete transformation. He wanted to see if he could become a fifth-level constellier in one go. The nova source awarded to the first place was indeed powerful; Tianming already felt as if he possessed the strength to overcome this level.
Somnium City was hidden in the deep sea, surrounded by dreamlike illusions. The reduction of its nova source was experienced by all and the city fell into chaos for a while; its citizens screamed and cursed. In the center of the city, a bewitching young man stood above the palace and looked up at the sky, his lips curled into a sly smile.
“Something happened to the Sky Palace. Will the divine wondersky race soon have our opportunity?”
A sea of fiery clouds filled the sky. Amidst the flames that covered the entire world, a masked, rock-like swordsman stood still with his arms folded until a figure appeared in three different directions.
“Northdipper Swordsage, you said the Sky Palace would reduce the Xuanyuan Dragon Sect’s nova source and completely give up on them. So how do you explain the current situation?”
