Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 521
Chapter 521 - Li Tianyang
Including Xiao Nanfeng, all the Combat Kings retreated from this place. They had no other choice, as none of them had any way of stopping Jiang Chen. Even if a mighty Combat Emperor was to intrude this place, the Asura Palace would have ways of stopping him from doing any damage. But now, this abnormal monster was facing his Heavenly Tribulation here, leaving them with no way of stopping him. Anyone who tried to stop him would eventually be killed, as even a Minor Saint wouldn’t dare get close to someone else’s Heavenly Tribulation, as it was just too frightening.
“Let me out! Hurry! Let me out of here!”
“Damn it, this bastard is facing his tribulation in here! Let me out of here! I don’t want to die in this place!”
All the Demon Kings began to furiously roar out. This scene made them all panic greatly. They were all locked up in cages, which meant they could do nothing but wait for death to arrive. Even if they were lucky enough to not get killed by the Heavenly Tribulation, they would be unable to escape from death once the Freezing Hell Jail collapsed.
There were also many humans locked up in this place, not only Demon Kings. Some of them were also like Tan Lang; disciples of the Asura Palace who had committed some wrongdoings, resulting in them being locked up in this place. Some were enemies of the Asura Palace, who were thrown into this place to run their course.
Everyone were greatly frightened upon seeing the Heavenly Tribulation wreak havoc in the Freezing Hell Jail. The same pale expression could be seen on everyone’s face. It was a frightening scene, and none of them had ever experienced something like this in their life. It looked as if the Freezing Hell Jail could collapse at any time. There were only two possibilities that awaited them; die by lightning, or be wiped out together with the destruction of this space.
Meanwhile, at one of the most remote corners of the Freezing Hell Jail, there was a dilapidated cage which looked insignificant. A man was seen curled up inside, lying on the floor within the cage. His clothes were stained with blood that had long ago dried up, and no one could tell the original cover of the shirt. His hair was disheveled, and it hung down his face, covering half of it; preventing his face from being seen. However, judging from his pale lips and body shape, this man should be a young man.
The young man was trembling violently. The ice cold wind had started corroding his body, and he was now laying between life and death; his breath as thin as a thread, as if he could die at any moment. As he was in a deep coma, the noise produced by the first tribulation bolt did not awake him.
The noise produced by the second tribulation bolt was much louder than the first. It instantly ripped open a huge hole in the Freezing Hell Jail, and spatial cracks had started appearing everywhere. The space was at the brink of collapsing. Demon Kings were furiously roaring out, while the humans had gone frantic as well. Nobody wanted to be killed by this Heavenly Tribulation.
Jiang Chen and the Heavenly Saint Sword were hovering underneath the raging tribulation clouds as lightning and thunder struck down like heavy downpour. However, it seemed like Jiang Chen was enjoying a nice, warm shower, as he wore a joyful expression on his face. Countless blood red illusionary dragons were seen lingering around his body, making him look extremely majestic.
The second tribulation bolt finally woke this young man up from his deep sleep. With great effort, he raised his head and opened his eyes. His eyes were cloudy in the beginning, but they soon became bright.
This young man had clearly lost all his strength. He could only see the lightning bolts that filled the entire sky, and a towering, mighty figure that stood in the eye of this frightening scene.
After continuously withstanding two tribulation bolts, Jiang Chen threw his head back and roared out. It was a dragon’s cry that shook both Heaven and Earth, and astonished all those who heard it. Even those Demon Kings were shaken upon hearing this roar. All of them stared at Jiang Chen in shock, freaked out by him. In their minds, Heavenly Tribulation was an extremely frightening concept, and even a Great Saint would fear it like a fierce tiger, and would have to prepare greatly before facing it. However, this young man’s body was clearly overpowered, as he looked like he was just showing underneath the raging thunder and lightning.
In fact, most people misunderstood the facts of Heavenly Tribulation. Normally, Heavenly Tribulation’s strength would be scaled according to the cultivation base of the cultivator undergoing Heavenly Tribulation. Cultivators would attract Heavenly Tribulations of different strength according to their current strength. Jiang Chen was facing the Intermediate Six Heavenly Tribulation now, and it was scaled according to the strength of his cultivation base.
Furthermore, as Jiang Chen was cultivating the Dragon Transformation skill, his body was incredibly strong, and was brimming with Qi and Blood. Also, as he had already passed through a Minor Three Tribulation, not only did it give him Lightning Flame, it also made him somewhat resistant to Tribulation Lightning. As a result, he was able to shower in the rain of lightning and thunder as if it was nothing.
The dark clouds were getting denser and denser. There were four remaining crimson lightning bolts, each thicker than the previous, hovering in the sky like four Azure Dragons, casting great fear in the hearts of everyone.
Every living being locked up in the Freezing Hell Jail had lost all hope. There was no way they could escape from this place now.
The third tribulation bolt finally descended from the sky, striking toward Jiang Chen. At this moment, Jiang Chen waved his hand, turning the tribulation bolt into numerous bright beams that shot toward some of the cages.
Bam, bam, bam...
In an instant, all cages that had humans locked up inside were ripped apart. Jiang Chen turned toward these humans and shouted, “Countless spatial cracks have appeared in this Freezing Hell Jail, you can run for your lives now.”
Jiang Chen’s voice swept across the entire space like a roaring clap of thunder. His words brought change to faces of those despairing humans, bringing them immense excitement. Many of the humans bowed deeply toward Jiang Chen, then simply found a random spatial crack and squeezed out from this Freezing Hell Jail.
This was their perfect opportunity. The Freezing Hell Jail was being destroyed, giving them a chance to escape. Everyone were immensely excited, as they thought they would soon have to face their deaths. They never expected this to actually be a chance for them to survive. They were really grateful to Jiang Chen. Without him, none of them would be able to leave this Freezing Hell Jail for the rest of their lives, and would have to die miserably in this place.
That young man also climbed out from the broken cage. His skinny body was trembling, but he still managed to gather enough strength to squeeze into a spatial crack and disappear.
At the same time, in the sky above the Asura Palace, all those Combat Kings had sensed the changes within the Freezing Hell Jail, causing their expressions to change dramatically.
“Not good, the Freezing Hell Jail is going to break at any moment! Jiang Chen has set those criminals free, and they have all run away from here. Should we go and chase them back?”
An Elder asked.
“Chase them? The Freezing Hell Jail’s space is basically destroyed, and we have no idea where those spatial cracks led to. Damn it, this Jiang Chen is a pure bastard! He has destroyed the Asura Palace’s foundation, we can’t let him get away!”
Elder Liu responded with a somber voice. Originally, the Freezing Hell Jail was an intact space, and there were countless customized portals that led into it, and these portals were only connected to the Asura Palace. If those criminals escaped from one of these portals, they would easily be recaptured. However, because the Freezing Hell Jail was nearly destroyed, it wouldn’t be easy to find and recapture those escaped criminals.
Right at this moment, another two powerful figures arrived. One was a middle-aged man wearing a green robe. He looked to be in his forties, and he had a manly face. He was emanating an extremely frightening aura from his body, and he projected natural dignity and power, while carrying the air of an emperor. He was in fact a mighty Combat Emperor!
Standing next to him was an old man who looked to be in his sixties. The old man was tall, and judging from his aura, he was not any weaker than the middle-aged man. Yes, he was a Combat Emperor as well.
Upon seeing the arrival of these two men, all the Combat Kings were filled with deep veneration, including Xiao Nanfeng and Elder Liu. Everyone immediately bowed and greeted the two men.
"Palace Chief! Great Elder!"
Everyone called out the identities of these two men. Yes, these two men were none other than the strongest warriors of the Asura Palace; two powerful Combat Emperors. The middle aged man was the Palace Chief, Li Tianyang.
“What’s going on? Who’s facing Heavenly Tribulation in the Freezing Hell Jail?!”
Li Tianyang was clearly very angry. The Freezing Hell Jail was the fruit of his painstaking labor, and the symbol of his authority. But now, it was torn and tattered as a result of this reckless man.
“Palace Chief, that guy’s name is Jiang Chen.”
Xiao Nanfeng dared not hide anything, and he quickly told Li Tianyang everything about Jiang Chen via his divine sense, including all that had happened in the recent days.
“Damn it! He dares challenge the authority of the Asura Palace?! He’s courting death! Great Elder, work with me, let’s lock down this guy’s aura first. Once his Heavenly Tribulation is finished, we’ll give him no chance to leave the Freezing Hell Jail.”
Li Tianyang said in a savage manner. Currently, as Jiang Chen was facing his Heavenly Tribulation within the Freezing Hell Jail, although Li Tianyang was a Combat Emperor, he had no courage to enter the place. The Freezing Hell Jail was done for, and the only thing he needed to do was lock down Jiang Chen’s aura from the outside, giving him no chance to escape.
“This mean is such a heavenly defying monster, and is able to attract Heavenly Tribulation at the Combat King realm, he’s definitely an abnormal monster. Once I’ve captured him, I’ll cultivate him into my secondary body. That’ll be enough compensation for the loss of the Freezing Hell Jail.”
Two bright beams shot out from Li Tianyang’s narrowed eyes. He had mastered a skill that allowed him to choose a young man with extraordinary talent and cultivate him into his secondary body. The second body could continue to cultivate together with him, which would eventually bring him twice the results of cultivation. Now, as the young man who appeared in the Freezing Hell Jail was capable of attracting Heavenly Tribulation, it proved that he was a man with extraordinary talent. Thus, a perfect candidate for Li Tianyang’s secondary body.
Li Tianyang and the Great Elder worked hand in hand, both sending out a thread of their divine sense into the Freezing Hell Jail and locking down on Jiang Chen’s aura.
As Jiang Chen was cultivating the Great Soul Derivation skill, he instantly sensed both men’s divine sense. A faint smile emerged on his face. He wasn’t bothered by them at all. Taking this opportunity where the fourth tribulation bolt had yet to strike, he cast his glance upon the imprisoned Demon Kings.
"Bastard, why aren’t you letting us go?!"
The Fourth Grade Demon King who claimed it wanted to eat Jiang Chen previously was now holding the edge of its cage tightly, and was furiously roaring at Jiang Chen.
The Demon King became Jiang Chen’s first target. He unleashed his True Dragon Palm and grabbed the Demon King’s head. Under normal circumstances, it would be really difficult for Jiang Chen to take control of a Fourth Grade Demon King. However, as all the Demon Kings here had been locked up for a pretty long time, they had lost most of their combat strength. Thus, this Fourth Grade Combat King was no match for Jiang Chen.
Not only this, the Heavenly Tribulation would be wherever Jiang Chen was, and as long as this Fourth Grade Demon King dared to unleash its aura, it would immediately trigger its own tribulation.
Of course, Jiang Chen would never give it the chance to trigger its own tribulation. With the help of the True Dragon Palm, he simply crushed its head.
