Chapter 4652 Life Creation Chart; Sacrificial Dao.
After seeing Yan Hu out, Duan Ling Tian returned to the guest’s courtyard and returned the divine crystals to Li Fei.
Li Fei said, surprised by the divine crystals, “Brother Tian, these are…”
Duan Ling Tian smiled before he recounted what had happened.
Li Fei nodded after he heard that the clan that owned the Precious Treasure Pavilion wanted Duan Ling Tian to lie for them.
On the other hand, after Yan Hu returned, he quickly spread the news. He did not forget to include the inn that Duan Ling Tian was staying in.
It did not take long before the other two major forces in Peace City received the news.
“Yan Hu gave the Sword Dao pendant to a Dao cultivator?”
“Is it true? Did he disclose the other party’s location? Does he want us to confirm the matter ourselves?”
The Sword Dao jade pendant was crucial in helping them to comprehend the Sword Dao. As such, the leaders of the two forces quickly rushed to the inn to confirm Yan Hu’s words. When they discovered that Duan Ling Tian was indeed a supreme Dao cultivator, they could only choose to withdraw no matter how reluctant they felt.
“Were we too forceful? If we had handled it more tactfully, perhaps the Yan clan might not resort to this…”
The two leaders shook their heads and smiled wryly after leaving the inn. They did not expect the Yan clan to go to such lengths to avoid giving up the Sword Dao jade pendant to them. After all, it was a self-defeating move.
At the same time, Yan Hu also received news that the two forces had been successfully deceived. He quickly visited the inn again with a few elders, not only to express his gratitude, but also to answer Duan Ling Tian’s question.
During his first visit, Duan Ling Tian had mentioned that he wanted to speak with knowledgeable people from the Yan clan. As such, the elders that Yan Hu brought were the most knowledgeable even if they were not Dao cultivators.
One of the elders had ventured out of the Distinct Province before. He narrowly escaped death before he successfully returned to Peace City. After all, it was dangerous for those who did not comprehend the Dao to venture out so far.
After expressing his gratitude and introducing the elders to Duan Ling Tian, he gave Duan Ling Tian a spatial ring.
The spatial rings were different from the spatial rings in the Myriad Worlds and the Outer Boundary. The latter relied on the law of space while the former relied on the materials it was forged from, which were of higher quality compared to the latter. Nonetheless, Duan Ling Tian could sense a trace of spatial energy from it. This was the first time he had sensed the spatial energy after coming to this world.
Unlike the spatial rings he was familiar with, the spatial rings here could not self-destruct. Although the rings were bound to their owners, after the death of their owners, anyone could take possession of the rings.
Duan Ling Tian inquired about the value of the spatial ring. After finding out that its value was not particularly high, he asked Yan Hu for more spatial rings for his family. After all, they no longer had their spatial rings after coming to this place.
Yan Hu was initially confused when he found out that Duan Ling Tian and the others did not possess spatial rings. Not only that, but they also seemed to lack divine rocks. After all, supreme Dao powerhouses should not lack these things. Realization only dawned on him after Duan Ling Tian told him about his origin.
Duan Ling Tian did not hesitate to disclose his origin to Yan Hu because he was certain that Yan Hu posed no threat to him. Moreover, he would soon leave this place.
After listening to this, the old man, who had once left the Distinct Province, said, “Sir, if I’m not mistaken, the world you came from is created by the Life Creation Chart. Based on the legends, the sacrificial Dao you mentioned is also related to it…”
“It’s created by the Life Creation Chart?”
Duan Ling Tian was shocked. Then, he took a deep breath and said, “Please elaborate, senior.”
The old man hurriedly said, “Sir, you’re a supreme Dao powerhouse. I’m not worthy of you addressing me as ‘senior’.”
After saying that, he told Duan Ling Tian about the legends and tales he had heard over the years.
In the history of the Divine Land, it was said that someone used the Life Creation Chart to create a new realm. Not only that, but the other party was also said to have forcibly moved others there. The most shocking thing was that the owner of the Life Creation Chart was said to be able to control everything in that realm, including the flow of time.
“It’s said that in the new realm created by the Life Creation Chart, the owner could establish various laws, among which were the elemental laws that form the foundation of the Life Creation Chart…”
Duan Ling Tian’s heart moved slightly when he heard the words ‘elemental laws’. These were likely the laws that they mastered. Apart from the five elements, space, time, and life were also considered elements in this world.
“The person who forged the Life Creation Chart and created a new realm shared it with his wife. However, for some reason, his wife met a tragic end later. Subsequently, he comprehended the sacrificial Dao and used the Life Creation Chart to bolster his strength by sacrificing the people of the new realm. Eventually, news of his sinister acts spread, and an alliance was formed. In the end, they managed to kill him. In fact, they were rather lucky. If he was just a little stronger, it would have been easier to ascend to heaven than to kill him.”
“After that, news of the Life Creation Chart began to spread. The five people who joined forces to kill him each protected a piece of it. The sacrificial Dao he comprehended was also declared a forbidden technique. Those who cultivated the technique were dealt with harshly in the Divine Land.”
Duan Ling Tian’s emotions were in turmoil. He did not expect the ‘truth’ to be so shocking. After all, according to the old man, the Myriad Worlds and Outer Boundary were nothing more than realms created by the Life Creation Chart in the Divine Land.
Although the old man had said that the story was merely a legend, Duan Ling Tian was certain there were some truths in it.
He wondered if Yu Luo He managed to obtain the Life Creation Chart or forge another one, creating the Myriad Worlds and the Outer Boundary. Were of all them ‘livestocks’ to Yu Luo He, used to bolster Yu Luo He’s strength? After all, based on the snippets he had heard before being transported to this world, it was said that Yu Luo He had cultivated the forbidden technique.
‘Did the gap in history happen because Yu Luo He sacrificed all of the lives in the realm for his cultivation? Was he sacrificing lives again before this, causing us to be transported here? However, that doesn’t seem right. Why didn’t he kill everyone? Why did he only kill those in the Heaven Traversing Pagoda?’
Duan Ling Tian felt chills running up his spine when he thought about the destruction of the Heaven Traversing Pagoda that preceded the destruction of the Solitary Destructive Heaven.
‘Why did he try to stop people from entering the seventh level of the realm of supreme powerhouses after the gap in history? Why was there no mention of the nine entrances to the Divine Land before the gap in history?’
Although Duan Ling Tian still had a lot of questions, he was quite certain that the nine mysterious entrances in the Myriad Worlds and the Outer Boundary led to the Divine Land.
