Not only was they watching with great interest, but they also couldn’t stop shouting.
Three hundred meters behind the middle-aged Emperor Realm master and the dozen or so Principle Source Stage masters, a few young men were holding a large flag, the blood red flag fluttering in the wind. On top of the flag were the words ‘Mountain Splitter’. The characters were pitch black, and it was unknown who had written them, but they seemed to have some kind of profound skill. The silver hook, iron, and dancing dragon and phoenix painting gave off an extraordinary aura. Combined with the red and black color, they seemed even more sinister.
At this moment, with the help of their Sect Elders, the young men holding the flag shouted in unison, “Founding Ancestor, your Divine Ability is boundless!”
The several hundred people behind also shouted in unison, their voices filled with fanaticism, as if they wanted to overturn the heavens.
The Emperor Realm swung his sword a few more times and the people holding the flag shouted in unison, “High Heaven Palace's demons, bow your head and accept your death!”
The sword light became brighter, and the sword energy became more destructive. Layers of sword light danced about, and it was almost impossible to see the figure of the Emperor Realm. His Emperor Qi also surged out, creating a violent wave of energy.
The person holding the flag shouted, “Subdue the demons and exterminate the devils, open the mountain first!”
The destructive sword light condensed into a single point and the aura of the Emperor Realm was fully displayed. The middle-aged Emperor Realm wore a solemn expression as he pointed his sword towards the Great Array and shouted, “Go!”
A beam of sword light shot into the Great Array and… disappeared.
The shouts from the back rang out again, “Mountain Splitter, Star Boundary's third!” At least he still had some self-awareness and didn’t shout out the first and second.
A few hundred meters away, Yang Kai stood in the middle of the grand formation, staring forward with a strange expression.
What a mess! The scene in front of him could only be described as a mess, so he couldn’t help turning his head to look at Hua Qingsi and asking, “Have they been looking for trouble all these years?”
The chief manager coughed lightly, “Most of them are, but there are a few who have some ability.”
Although Hua Qingsi was only a First-Order Emperor Realm, she was still from the Star Soul Palace and was the orthodox descendant of the Southern Domain. The cultivation she received was not something these ‘rising stars’ could compare with.
Although many Emperor Realm had emerged from the Star Boundary’s great energy tide, there were still a number of good and bad ones among them. As for those who had come here to cause trouble and trample upon High Heaven Palace, most of them didn’t have any true ability, so they naturally weren’t worthy of her attention.
“You’re spoiling them too much,” Yang Kai sneered lightly. Although he said so, he also knew that it wasn’t that High Heaven Palace was spoiling them, but that High Heaven Palace had been in an awkward situation for the past few years. The Great Emperors had ordered the mountain to be sealed, so when Yang Kai wasn’t around, no one dared to casually activate the Sect Protecting Spirit Array. In addition, they also had to consider Yang Kai’s reputation, so they could only allow them to mess around.
Outside the Great Array, the middle-aged Emperor Realm was in high spirits. He had been cultivating bitterly for many years, but his cultivation had remained stagnant at the peak of the Third-Order Principle Source Stage. He had no hope of breaking through, and seeing that his lifespan was running out, he had thought that he would only be able to waste his life here, no longer able to see the mysteries of the Emperor Realm. In his despair, he had let loose and acted without any scruples. Who would have thought that after the war between the two Worlds had broken out, the Star Boundary would have a new outlook? It was unknown if this great world had felt some kind of crisis, but the World Laws of Heaven and Earth were able to repair themselves and produce a massive energy tide, making many cultivators’ cultivation much easier than before.
One day, just as the middle-aged Emperor Realm was thinking about the flowers, he suddenly had a flash of inspiration and began meditating.
When he woke up again, he had inexplicably broken through to the Emperor Realm.
Overjoyed and pleasantly surprised!
Such a great opportunity had actually fallen upon his head. The middle-aged Emperor Realm simply couldn’t believe it. A single breakthrough was equivalent to a new life, allowing him to restore his state of mind and find a quiet place to cultivate for three years.
On the day he came out of seclusion, he established a Sect that belonged to him. The name of the Sect was derived from his own name and was called the Mountain Splitter Sect!
However, at this moment, the war between the two Worlds was in full swing. The four regions of Star Boundary had received orders from the Great Emperors to send countless cultivators to the nearest Space Array to fight the Demon Race.
For the Star Boundary, this was a good thing, but for the middle-aged Emperor Realm, it was a great disaster.
Since he had established a Sect, it was only natural for him to open his doors and accept disciples. Normally, if a First-Order Emperor Realm master were to establish a Sect, even if it was just a First-Order Emperor Realm master, there would be as many applicants as there were carps in a river, and they could easily support a small Sect.
But now, most of the cultivators with a little bit of cultivation had gone to the Western Regions, so even if he wanted to recruit them, he couldn’t. The only ones he could collect were some low-level cultivators.
The middle-aged Emperor Realm was worried!
For this reason, he even paid a visit to an old friend of his. This old friend’s situation was similar to him; he had been stuck at the Third-Order Principle Source Stage for many years and had no hope of breaking through to the Emperor Realm. However, this old friend had established a Sect and easily taken in a few thousand disciples. From then on, he had lived a life of luxury.
The beautiful female disciples under his tutelage were simply dazzling and tempting.
After asking around, he learned that his old friend had once brought a group of people to High Heaven Palace to exterminate demons and protect the Dao. Although High Heaven Palace’s Sect Protection Array was formidable and his old friend had failed to do anything to High Heaven Palace, after the news spread, the mountain gate was immediately flattened by the people who had come to learn from him.
His old friend pointed out a clear path, but the middle-aged Emperor Realm was somewhat worried.
He was aware of the situation in High Heaven Palace, but was it really possible for him to escape unscathed from such a massive force?
After hesitating for a while, he finally couldn’t resist the temptation and led the several hundred disciples he had painstakingly collected to attack High Heaven Palace Mountain.
After today’s ruckus, he discovered that the situation here was exactly as his old friend had said. No one from High Heaven Palace responded, and the Sect Protecting Spirit Array could not be opened. Hearing the shouts of the disciples behind him, this middle-aged Emperor Realm suddenly became high-spirited, feeling that High Heaven Palace was nothing more than this. He laughed towards the sky, stood up, and tightly gripped his long sword with both hands. Activating his Emperor Qi, he slashed his sword towards the Spirit Array and shouted, “Break!”
The sword light crashed into the Great Array, causing the clouds to churn.
Rumbling sounds rang out as the rolling clouds and mist parted to reveal a passage that led straight in.
The middle-aged Emperor Realm, who had just landed on the ground, was stunned. His eyes widened as he stared towards the tunnel, a great question in his mind: How did it break open?
His old friend had said that High Heaven Palace’s Sect Protecting Array had been personally set up by Nanmen Dajun, and its foundation was the Asking Passion Sect’s Array. Nanmen Dajun had then reconstructed it.
Who was this Nanmen Dajun? The North Region’s most outstanding Emperor Array Master. In this world, the only one who could compare to him in terms of the Dao of Arrays was the Patriarch of the South Territory's Array Family, Heavenly River Valley’s Gong Family, Gong Zhen. Let alone a First-Order Emperor Realm, even a Third-Order Emperor Realm master wouldn’t be able to shake High Heaven Palace’s Great Array.
However, the scene in front of him couldn’t be any clearer. With a single swing of his sword, the Array was broken.
The words he shouted just now were just to show off his momentum and coordinate with his attack, but who would have thought that his words would come true!
The middle-aged Emperor Realm knew that he absolutely didn’t have this ability. After a brief moment of confusion and hesitation, he immediately understood what this scene meant.
It wasn’t that he had broken through their Sect Protection Array, but rather that they had opened it!
For a moment, his forehead was covered in cold sweat and his face was pale.
Over the past few years, High Heaven Palace’s reputation had been quite notorious, but who in the North Region didn’t know that High Heaven Palace was one of the top Sects? With a single word of disagreement, High Heaven Palace had exterminated the Asking Passion Sect and joined forces with the other three Sects to unify the North Region. Under their orders, no one dared to disobey. There were countless Emperor Realm masters in the North Region, so how could a newly promoted Emperor Realm master like him have the qualifications to act so presumptuously in front of someone’s door? Before this, he had only relied on the fact that they wouldn’t care about him, but now they did…
What would happen to him?
His thoughts raced as he realized that he was in big trouble, but the disciples behind him didn’t know, not even the dozen or so Principle Source Stage masters who had attacked.
Everyone could only hear their own Sect's Master shouting, “Break!” and then High Heaven Palace’s Great Array was broken.
The dozen or so Principle Source Stage masters all turned to look at the middle-aged Emperor Realm, their faces filled with surprise and shock. They had just recently joined the mountain Splitter Sect, so they didn’t know just how strong this middle-aged man was, but now it seemed that their Sect Master’s methods were simply unfathomable!
If they were already in such a state, there was no need to mention the hundreds of disciples behind them.
The young men holding the flag were stunned for a moment before roaring loudly, “Founding Ancestor, Boundless Divine Abilities, High Heaven Palace's Demon, bow your head and accept death! Founding Ancestor, Boundless Divine Abilities, High Heaven Palace's Demon, bow your head and accept death!”
A series of shouts shook the sky, boosting the prestige of their Patriarch.
A moment ago, he had been listening to these shouts with great satisfaction, but now they sounded so loud and piercing that the middle-aged man wanted nothing more than to turn around and sew these blind fools’ mouths shut.
The Great Array’s fog no longer roiled as a hundred-meter long tunnel stretched out in front of High Heaven Palace.
It was only at this moment that the middle-aged man had a chance to see the majestic scenery of High Heaven Palace’s main gate. The three words shining brightly almost blinded him.
At this moment, a group of people were standing in front of the mountain gate.
The leader of this group was a young man with a dignified appearance and sharp eyebrows. The corners of his mouth curled up slightly and a faint smile appeared on his face as he stared at the middle-aged Emperor Realm. This young man didn’t stand very high, but the middle-aged Emperor Realm couldn’t help feeling as if he was a god looking down on him.
Unconsciously, his back bent slightly.
Beside the young man, there were all kinds of beautiful women with different temperaments, each one of them a peerless beauty. None of these women could be seen easily, but at this moment, all of them were gathered around the young man like stars surrounding the moon, making everyone understand that this young man was the one in charge here while the others were just there to act as a foil.
Not only that, but there was also a large group of people standing at the back, all of them wearing unfriendly expressions. Several of them were emitting the aura of the Emperor Realm. Although most of them were at the First-Order, their auras were much stronger than his own.
This undoubtedly showed that their strength was higher than his own, otherwise they would not have acted like this.
If he wasn’t careful, he would end up poking a hornet’s nest! The middle-aged Emperor Realm’s heart sank.
