Chapter 4125: How Playful
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“In the past 10,000 years, no one in the Inner Palace faction met the requirements to enter the Trial of Gods. As such, we have an extra place. This time, our faction can send two people into the Trial of Gods,” Yang Yu Chen said to Duan Ling Tian.
“We’re only given one place to enter the Trial of Gods every 10,000 years?” Duan Ling Tian frowned slightly as he asked, “Is that enough?”
“We’re considered lucky to be given one place,” Yang Yu Chen said with a smile, “Back then, during the fight for the Trial of Gods, the founder of our faction discovered the Supreme Powerhouse Relic and obtained it. According to the words left behind by the supreme powerhouse, the Supreme Powerhouse Relic would belong to the person who discovered it. This is also another reason why no one dares to snatch the Supreme Powerhouse Relic from our Inner Palace faction. The Legacy faction can’t obtain it, but they definitely won’t sit back and do nothing if outsiders try to snatch it from us. No matter the conflict between the two factions, ultimately, they still belong to the academy.”
Duan Ling Tian finally knew the origins of the Inner Palace faction’s Supreme Powerhouse Relic and why it only belonged to the Inner Palace faction. Previously, all he knew was that the founder of the faction discovered and obtained it, but he did not know the details.
Yang Yu Chen said with a smile, “Like I said earlier, we’re considered lucky to be given one place, considering our faction obtained the Supreme Powerhouse Relic. Moreover, due to the low number of members in our faction, one place is usually more than enough. Even if it’s not enough, we can compete for a place like ordinary students do. I said earlier that the academy has 20 places to enter the Trial of Grounds. Our Inner Palace faction has one place, and the Legacy faction has ten places. This means that there are another ten places up for grabs in the academy. The condition is that one can’t be from a heavyweight supreme-rank force. However, in the past, there was a rare case when a member of a prime supreme-rank force took advantage of the loophole and enrolled in our academy to enter the Trial of Gods. This doesn’t happen often since prime supreme-rank forces don’t lack places like the Trial of Gods. They have living supreme powerhouses supporting them, after all. Moreover, they’re proud to their bones so they usually disdained to do such things.”
After listening to these words, Duan Ling Tian could not help but think of his wife, Ke’er.
‘Since prime supreme-rank forces don’t lack such places, why did Ke’er go to the Realm Battlefield?’
After all, the fortuitous encounters on the Realm Battlefield and in the Trial of Gods were somewhat similar.
After a moment, Duan Ling Tian looked to Yang Yu Chen for answers again.
After hearing Duan Ling Tian’s question, Yang Yu Chen shook his head and smiled, “Junior brother, only the average person would ask such a question. You overlooked a very obvious thing. Compared to the Trial of Gods, the Realm Battlefield carries risks and uncertainties. Moreover, unlike the Trial of Grounds, one would gain first-hand combat experience on the Realm Battlefield. Moreover, there are more fortuitous encounters on the Realm Battlefield and some fortuitous encounters on the Realm Battlefield are even better than those in places like the Trial of Gods. The Trial of Gods were created by a few supreme powerhouses, but at least more than a dozen supreme powerhouses left fortuitous encounters on the Realm Battlefield. You can liken places like the Realm Battlefield and Trial of Gods to a big chess board for the supreme powerhouses, and supreme powerhouses usually prefer big chess boards like the Realm Battlefield, which is much more exciting.”
After listening to Yang Yu Chen, Duan Ling Tian could not help but feel distressed for Ke’er. ‘So she entered the Realm Battlefield for this reason?’
After taking a deep breath to calm down, Duan Ling Tian asked again, “Third Senior Brother, with my current strength, I should be able to protect myself to a certain extent if I enter the Realm Battlefield, right?”
Yang Yu Chen frowned upon hearing Duan Ling Tian’s words. “Junior Brother, it’s best that you dismissed this thought for the time being. There are countless Lords of Gods and Emperors of Gods on the Realm Battlefield. Although your strength is comparable to an ordinary rudimentary Emperor of Gods now, it’s not worth mentioning on the Realm Battlefield. Let alone extraordinary Emperors of Gods, there are even Supreme Gods on the Realm Battlefield. There aren’t many restrictions in there so it’s common for Supreme Gods to kill Emperors of Gods there.”
“In fact, there’s a clear rule in the Myriad Laws Academy’s Legacy faction, the heavyweight supreme-rank forces, and the prime supreme-rank forces. For the safety of their members, only advanced Emperors of Gods who possess prominent divine artifacts with complete artifact souls can enter the Realm Battlefield,” Yang Yu Chen said. He had spoken very seriously, worried that Duan Ling Tian would not take his words to heart.
After listening to Yang Yu Chen, Duan Ling Tian realized once again how lucky he had been to survive the Realm Battlefield in the past.
Ye Bei Yuan, the Lord of Gods who helped Duan Ling Tian on the Realm Battlefield, was also lucky to have come out of the Realm Battlefield alive. Moreover, Ye Bei Yuan stayed close to the safe zone and did not venture to the center of the Realm of Battlefield.
In the heart of the Realm Battlefield, countless Lords of Gods and Emperors of Gods died every day. Once in a while, even Supreme Gods died. If the fight was fierce, a few Supreme Gods might even die in a day.
In the Realms of Gods, not all Supreme Gods belonged to a supreme-rank force. There were many who were also sectless cultivators. Some of them used to belong to a supreme-rank force but left to improve themselves due to the threat of their impending Heavenly Tribulation. Needless to say, the Realm Battlefield was a great chance for them to improve their strength.
The Realm Battlefield, unlike the Trial of Gods, did not have an age restriction. Anyone could enter the Realm of Battlefield.
“Junior brother,” Yang Yu Chen said again, “Looking for fortuitous encounters on Realm Battlefield is like searching for a needle in a haystack. In comparison, there’s a higher chance of you finding a fortuitous encounter in the Trial of Gods. Without exception, Eldest Senior Sister, Second Senior Brother, and I came across fortuitous encounters in the Trial of Gods. With your current strength, entering the Trial of Gods is undoubtedly better for you than entering the Realm Battlefield. Moreover, the Trial of Gods is opening soon…”
Duan Ling Tian said reassuringly, “Third Senior Brother, don’t worry. I won’t enter the Realm Battlefield any time soon.”
After that, Duan Ling Tian asked Yang Yu Chen about the opening day of the Trial of Gods. He sighed in relief when he found that it would open in 100 years. He could wait for another 100 years, but he would not be able to do so if it was a few hundred or 1,000 years.
‘It’ll be difficult for me to break through and become an Emperor of Gods in 100 years, but I’m sure I’ll be able to become an advanced Lord of Gods before entering the Trial of Gods. I should continue to cultivate to get as close to breaking through and becoming an Emperor of Gods. With that, perhaps, I have a chance of breaking through in the Trial of Gods,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself as his eyes shone brightly.
Yang Yu Chen’s expression was solemn as he said, “Junior brother, just because you killed those five students from the Lone Primordial Spirit Congregation, don’t be complacent and think that those who enter the Trial of Gods aren’t a threat to you. Let me put it this way. Wang Yun Sheng was not the strongest person among the younger generation in the Lone Primordial Spirit Congregation. Even if you didn’t kill him, in another few decades, the congregation will be sending another two Holy Sons to the academy. Most importantly, if there’s no accident, those two Holy Sons will likely be intermediate Emperors of Gods when they enter the Trial of Gods. After all, the heavyweight supreme-rank forces would send very outstanding prodigies to the academy, but it’s not certain that they’ll send their most outstanding prodigies from their respective forces.”
Duan Ling Tian shuddered inwardly upon hearing Yang Yu Chen’s words.
‘Intermediate Emperors of Gods below the age of 10,000? This means that they’re already rudimentary Emperors of Gods now…’
“Even if such a prodigy only joins our academy a few decades before the Trial of Gods opens, he or she can easily accumulate enough points to enter the Trial of Gods. After all, emperor-rank tasks reward one with more points compared to lord-rank tasks.”
In the Myriad Laws Academy, points were obtained by completing various tasks issued by the academy, teachers, or even students.
“So Fourth Senior Sister and I don’t have to accumulate points to enter the Trial of Gods?” Duan Ling Tian asked again.
“Of course not,” Yang Yu Chen said with a smile, “As I said before, our Inner Palace faction is given a place every 10,000 years. Coincidentally, we have an extra place so we have two places this time. Moreover, no matter what, the Inner Palace faction, just like the Legacy faction, is a faction of the Myriad Laws Academy. It’d be too unfair if we weren’t even allotted a place.”
Then, as though he just recalled something, Yang Yu Chen looked at Duan Ling Tian and said, “Although your Fourth Senior Sister is an advanced Emperor of Gods, you mustn’t think that she’ll be able to help you in the Trial of Gods. The Trial of Gods is a very strange place. You’ll be transported to different places once you enter the Trial of Gods. Moreover, you may not even recognize each other even if you manage to meet each other.”
“We may not even recognize each other?” Duan Ling Tian was curious.
“That’s right,” Yang Yu Chen said with a nod, “Not only will your appearance change in there, but your aura will change as well. You won’t be able to find out anything even if you use your Divine Consciousness to probe the other party. However, needless to say, your weapons won’t change. As such, many people identify each other through their prominent divine artifacts.”
Duan Ling Tian was even more intrigued after listening to Yang Yu Chen’s words.
‘What kind of place can change a person’s appearance and aura?’
Duan Ling Tian could not help but sigh when he thought about how playful and arbitrary the supreme powerhouses were for coming up with such a thing.
