Tongxuan Continent, the second stop of Yang Kai’s road of martial dao, was also an important stepping stone for him to reach a higher world. If it weren’t for his many opportunities and experiences on Tongxuan Continent, he would never have achieved what he had today.
As his thoughts drifted back and forth, Yang Kai stared at the distant star from the void, his face as calm as still water.
His previous worries had become reality.
Looking at the Tongxuan Continent from the Starry Sky, the situation was even worse than that of Green Hills Star. The Star seemed to be suffering from a serious illness, showing a sickly and dispirited state, as if an old man in his twilight years was walking towards his grave.
Black spots appeared one after another, as if someone had scattered a few drops of ink onto Tongxuan Continent. Even though they were thousands of kilometers away, they were still clearly visible.
The surface of the Star was filled with a faint black aura.
Looking at these ‘ink dots’, Yang Kai vaguely felt that they had formed a great formation that connected with each other, forming an invisible net that wrapped around Tongxuan Continent.
This Great Formation had not yet fully formed, but it was already showing its extraordinary power. Even Yang Kai, who was in the Starry Sky, could feel an oppressive aura, let alone the residents of Tongxuan Continent. All of them would be affected by this great formation. This Great Formation was definitely an inhumane one, so if it was fully activated, Tongxuan Continent would definitely suffer.
Fortunately, it wasn’t too late.
Although he didn’t know when this Spirit Formation would be fully activated, it was obviously not something that could be completed in a few days.
With his current ability, a few days was more than enough for him to run back and forth across Tongxuan Continent and kill all the invaders.
Logically speaking, since Tongxuan Continent had a Star Master, the cultivators of the Great Desolate Star Territory shouldn’t have been able to infiltrate so easily. The Star Master’s might was extraordinary. A Star Master standing on his own Cultivation Star, supported by the Star Source, was basically invincible.
However, Tongxuan Continent’s situation was different. Just as he had told Liu Yan before, Tongxuan Continent had experienced a depletion of Spirit Qi several dozen years ago. Even if Xia Ningchang later refined the Star Source to restore it, how much could it recover in just a few decades?
Compared to other Cultivation Stars, Tongxuan Continent’s World Energy and Laws were much weaker. If not for this, Tongxuan Continent wouldn’t have been dominated by Saint Realm cultivators. It was because of these Laws and Spirit Qi that Tongxuan Continent was unable to produce more powerful cultivators. On the other hand, the other stars in the same Star Territory could produce Saint Kings, Void Return Stage, or even Void King Realm cultivators.
A few dozen years would at most allow Tongxuan Continent to recover some of its vitality, but this chance of survival would likely be exhausted with the arrival of the Great Desolate Star Territory’s cultivators. If Xia Ningchang wanted to resist their invasion, she would need to borrow the power of the entire Star Territory. Once she used it too many times, it would definitely bring an unbearable burden to Tongxuan Continent.
Therefore, even though she was a Star Master, she was unable to keep the cultivators from the Great Desolate Star Territory outside. Letting them enter Tongxuan Continent was probably a helpless act. In the blink of an eye, Yang Kai had already considered most of Xia Ningchang’s current situation.
Suppressing the longing in his heart, Yang Kai didn’t know where to find Xia Ningchang and Xue Yue. Tongxuan Continent was neither big nor small. If they were hiding somewhere, Yang Kai wouldn’t be able to find them in a short time.
It would be better to take advantage of this time to kill some cultivators from the Great Desolate Star Territory and let them know the consequences of offending someone they shouldn’t offend.
After observing for a moment, Yang Kai leapt towards Tongxuan Continent.
He stared at the largest “black dot” on the star in front of him and allowed the gravity of the earth to pull him down. Liu Yan followed closely behind, her movements neither fast nor slow.
A moment later, the two of them rushed into the atmosphere, and the nearby auras caused Yang Kai to frown. He felt uncomfortable, but with his strong physique, he could ignore this kind of influence, but if an ordinary cultivator was wrapped in this kind of aura, it wouldn’t be long before their mind would be affected and they would become a walking corpse.
When he was observing from the Starry Sky just now, he had felt that Tongxuan Continent’s situation was not optimistic, but now that he had rushed into the area covered by this ‘ink dot’, he discovered that the situation was worse than he had imagined.
He didn’t know what this ‘black dot’ was, but it made him feel as if he had entered purgatory.
Yang Kai’s clothes fluttered in the wind and his black hair fluttered behind his head. At this moment, he was like a falling meteor, shooting through the sky towards the ground.
The speed at which he flew caused his body to rub against the air, igniting a burst of flames. Looking up from the ground, it was as if a shooting star had fallen from the sky.
Squinting his eyes slightly, Yang Kai raised his hand and spread it out, bending his arm before slowly pushing it down.
A giant palm print suddenly formed in front of him and covered the ground together with him. As they got closer, the palm print grew larger, seemingly able to cover the sky.
In the “Ink Point” below, inside the largest building, an old man with a deathly aura was meditating and cultivating. Judging from his clothes, he was a member of the Underworld Sect, and his cultivation was extremely high, at least a 3rd order Void King Realm. Even if he was placed in the Underworld Sect, he would at least be an Elder.
Underworld Sect didn’t have so many 3rd order Void King Realm, and the number of masters they had was about the same as High Heaven Sect at its peak, only three or four. However, the invasion on Heng Luo Star Territory had brought great benefits to the entire Underworld Sect. Whether it was refining the Blood Sea Banner, Myriad Soul Banner, or refining corpses, they all needed living people as materials, and the stronger the living, the greater the benefits they would receive.
Underworld Sect had unified the Great Desolate Star Territory, and under its command, no one dared to defy it, no force was its opponent. However, when they cultivated, it was impossible for them to act recklessly. At most, they would find some excuse to destroy some of the Sects’ forces and bring back their cultivators as cultivation materials, but it was impossible for them to act recklessly. Everything had a limit, and it was precisely because Underworld Sect was able to control this speed that they could unify the Great Desolate Star Territory without incurring public anger.
But after coming to Heng Luo Star Territory, things were different. Their suppressed and brutal nature had been released, and to them, all cultivators from Heng Luo Star Territory could be slaughtered!
With countless Heng Luo Star Territory cultivators as cultivation materials, how could the cultivation of the people from the Underworld Sect not improve?
It had only been a dozen or so years since the invasion, and as long as it was someone from the Underworld Sect, they had at least broken through a small realm. The Elders, Protectors, and deacons were even more incredible. Void Return Stage cultivators had broken through to the Void King Realm, 1st order VOid King Realm had broken through to the 2nd order, and 2nd order Void King Realm had broken through to the 3rd order!
It was fine if it was just a personal improvement, but the key was the overall improvement of all the disciples of the Underworld Sect. This was an extremely terrifying situation. In terms of overall strength, the Underworld Sect had long since surpassed High Heaven Sect by several streets, with more than a dozen 3rd order Void King Realm and more than half of them having the opportunity to break through after invading Heng Luo Star Territory.
As for the 2nd order and 1st order Void King Realm, there were even more.
It was because they had tasted all kinds of benefits that Underworld Sect was so enthusiastic about invading Heng Luo Star Territory. Wherever they went, no one in Heng Luo Star Territory could stop them. Even Heng Luo Chamber of Commerce had fallen, not to mention the other forces, only the Cultivation Stars with the Star Masters in charge of them made things a little difficult for them.
Tongxuan Continent, on the other hand, was such a troublesome planet, but… it was only slightly troublesome.
This Star’s World Energy was thin and its Law Grade was low, so it was likely that nothing good would be born from it. If this was any other time, the Underworld Sect wouldn’t have been willing to expend so much effort to deal with Tongxuan Continent.
However, there were many powerful cultivators gathered here! This was exactly what the Underworld Sect wanted. If these cultivators could be used as cultivation materials, the Sect could at least produce another 3rd order Void King Realm.
Whether it was killing a chicken to warn the monkeys or to cultivate, Tongxuan Continent had to be taken down, and anyone who dared to resist had to be killed! Only then could the Underworld Sect announce who was the true master of this Star Territory.
Because of this, the entire Tongxuan Continent had five 3rd order Void King Realm from the Underworld Sect, one of whom was the Vice Sect Master of the Underworld Sect who had chased Xue Yue all the way here.
The old man meditating in the hall was the Vice Sect Master of the Underworld Sect, Xin XuanMing.
Tongxuan Continent had a Star Master, and he was aware of this fact. He even knew that this Star Master was a woman with a 3rd order Void King Realm cultivation.
But he was not afraid at all.
If it was a higher-level Star, it would be fine, but he would have to expend some effort to deal with it. However, this Star was obviously of a very low grade. As long as he could destroy this Star’s World Energy, it would be equivalent to destroying Tongxuan Continent’s Source. At that time, there would be no need for him to act against it, and the Star Master would not have a good end. Without the Star Master’s protection, those hidden rats would be at his mercy.
The Eight Trigram Spirit Locking Formation was set up precisely for this purpose. Once it was formed, the entire Tongxuan Continent would be sealed by the Formation and this Cultivation Star would no longer be able to replenish the Starry Sky Essence. It would be like a water without a source, a tree without roots. Not only that, but the Eight Trigram Spirit Locking Formation would also summon the Eye of the Underworld. At that time, the power of the Underworld would spread across the land and this place would become the Heaven of the Underworld Sect, the Hell of other cultivators.
Thinking back to a few years ago, when he had led a group of people here, he had been intercepted by the Star Master outside the Star Territory. What was laughable was that the dozen or so Starship Crystal Cannons of the Underworld Sect had only been fired a dozen times before they broke through the Star Master’s blockade and entered.
Over the past few years, the cultivators from the Underworld Sect and the other Great Desolate Star Territory Sects had spread their footsteps across the entire Tongxuan Continent, so the Star Master had no way to resist them. She could only protect a small group of people and hide herself.
Since she refused a toast only to be forced to drink a forfeit, she could only blame herself for being weak.
It wouldn’t be long before the Eight Trigram Spirit Locking Formation was fully formed. At that time, even the Star Master wouldn’t be able to resist!
