Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 1540(1)
The Golden Horizon
The Crown Prince snorted coldly, then turned and left. King Ping just darted a glance at Jiang Chen and Yang Bufan without speaking and left, but his killing intent was keenly sensed by Jiang Chen.
“King Ping is a lot more terrifying compared to the Crown Prince.”
Looking at the sight of King Ping’s back, Jiang Chen said plainly. A subtle man is always the hardest to deal with. Without a doubt, King Ping was really terrifying. As for the Crown Prince, Jiang Chen had never regarded him as a true expert.
Yang Bufan nodded. He, the Crown Prince and King Ping were brothers. No one understood the two better than him. Although the Crown Prince was ferocious, he was a straightforward person. Everything he did was obvious and direct. Comparing that to King Ping’s cunningness and subtlety, the Crown Prince was so much easier to deal with.
In the interior on top of the tower of Genius Prefecture, Yang Yu was sitting on the throne while the others were standing on his left and right. Yang Zanqing and Dongfang Yu was looking at Yang Yu sternly. Just now, Yang Yu had said that he had things to discuss with them. With certainty, the things to discuss wouldn’t be anything trivial, otherwise Yang Yu wouldn’t have personally come here.
“The Golden Horizon is about to open again,” Yang Yu said.
Speaking about the Golden Horizon, everyone’s facial expression slightly changed. That was a real killing zone that had existed since the ancient times. Each opening was a major event. It wasn’t just a major event in Eastern Profound Domain, but also the entire Ethereal Immortal Domain. The opening was controlled by the Immortal Court, each time.
“The Golden Horizon opens once every five years. Time passes really quickly. I wonder what will be different this time,” Yang Zanqing commented.
“Just like before, the quota of people is set by the Immortal Court. Our empire is entitled a hundred people. These are the identity brocade bags. Select a hundred people from Genius Prefecture. The Golden Horizon will be opened seven days later. And don’t forget to make it clear to them about the risks and information of that place.”
Yang Yu took out a spatial ring. The green ring drifted to Yang Zanqing’s hand. It was a storage ring that contained the one hundred identity brocade bags. They were the number of quotas permitted by the Immortal Court to enter the Golden Horizon.
“Rest assured Your Majesty, I’ll choose carefully,” Yang Zanqing said solemnly.
He knew better than anyone about the importance of entering the Golden Horizon. He knew even better about what kind of place the Golden Horizon was. In the past, he had also been there and experienced life-and-death situations. To put it in another way, anyone who could walk out of the Golden Horizon wouldn’t be inferior.
“En, you and Dongfang Yu have gone to the Golden Horizon before and knew about the situation inside very well. So I don’t have to explain it further. Proceed with your task. Determine the hundred people who will go to the Golden Horizon. Remember, this has to depend on one’s willingness and it can’t be forced. You must explain clearly about the things inside the Golden Horizon,” Yang Yu ordered with emphasis.
The Golden Horizon would only open once every five years. Each time, its opening was a huge event in the Immortal World. Not only the Great Qian Empire, but also to the numerous major powers, they had attached an incomparable importance to this event.
“I understand,” replied Yang Zanqing.
Then, Yang Yu and the other four experts vanished without a trace, as if they had never appeared.
“The Golden Horizon is going to be opened once more. This time, no one knew how many people are going to fall in this expedition. Ai!”
After the five of them left, Yang Zanqing sighed at Dongfang Yu. He still couldn’t forget the scene of them entering the Golden Horizon together.
“The Immortal World has always operated this way. It has always been the law of the jungle. In order to survive and become a true expert, one will have to tread on mountains of bones. Some will fall and some will rise. My thinking is different than yours. To those geniuses, life and death is just a matter of luck and nature. It can’t be forced. I do hope that a few of the geniuses of our Genius Prefecture can rise to fame or even draw the attention of the Immortal Court after the expedition in the Golden Horizon.”
Dongfang Yu’s Qi fluctuated. This was the law of survival. He had long understood that it wasn’t an easy task to survive in the Immortal World. Every one of those in power had experienced countless of killings, numerous crises and innumerable life-and-death situations. Each time, they were able to pull through. None of them had achieved their goal in one attempt. There was luck, capability and talent. Neither of these should be lacking. The Golden Horizon was where these things would be tested.
