Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 909
The Arrival of the Experts
Wu Jiu’s words also reminded Jiang Chen of the characteristics of the Inferno Hell. It was true that the Inferno Hell could be entered at any time, but the exit would only be opened once a year. Even if Wu Jiu could call for the cultivators to enter the Inferno Hell, they wouldn’t be able to leave.
Therefore, Jiang Chen had to enter the Inferno Hell as soon as possible. One should know that there will be plenty of cultivators undergoing tough-training in there. The arrival of the experts of Pure Land would be a disaster to them. Even if those experts didn’t attack them, the difference in power between the two groups was too big. The Qi that was subconsciously unleashed from these experts because of a single conflict would tremble them to death.
In Jiang Chen’s eyes, the entire Eastern Continent was his homeland. He had made many memories here, which explained how important this land was to him compared to Pure Land in Divine Continent. The competition in the Pure Land shouldn’t have involved the Eastern Continent. This had destroyed the tranquillity here. In the hearts of the cultivators of Eastern Continent, Jiang Chen was a supreme being, their guardian angel. As such, Jiang Chen didn’t want to see any incidents that the ancient battlefield would do to them.
After resting in Martial Saint Dynasty for a while, Jiang Chen brought Yan Chenyu along to the entrance of the passageway to the Inferno Hell. As they were about to enter, they saw Big Yellow and Han Yan moving towards them in a distance. Big Yellow had a matchless travelling speed. His speed reached to an unimaginable extent after he advanced to the peak of First Grade Great Saint. After informing Han Yan about the matter, he and Han Yan rushed back to the Eastern Continent using their fastest speed.
“Just in time. Let’s go into the Inferno Hell now. We have to evacuate the cultivators inside before the experts of Pure Land come.” Jiang Chen said.
Big Yellow and Han Yan nodded. The four of them turned into beams of light, shooting straight into the entrance passageway. The next moment, the scene changed suddenly. They arrived in the Inferno Hell.
They were still very familiar with the Inferno Hell, but this time, they felt an ancient scent lingering in the void, which seemed to be the Qi of desolation. It was obviously different from the Inferno Hell before.
“Sure enough, as Lang Xingtian said, there is a huge ancient battlefield in this Inferno Hell. I have already sensed the smell of it.”
Big Yellow’s senses got aroused. He had to admit that he failed to notice this Qi in Inferno Hell last time. This ancient battlefield had apparently always been deeply hidden in the Inferno Hell.
“Let’s take a look at the other side of Inferno City,” said Jiang Chen.
With a sway, the four of them appeared in Inferno City. With their present cultivation level, it felt entirely different compared to when they entered here last time. This place no longer gave them any sense of threat.
To their surprise, the huge Inferno City had disappeared completely, leaving behind a land of ruins. There was an unknown dark mass occupying this land. Sweeping across this land, there were at least a few thousands of them. These people were the cultivators of Eastern Continent. They had come here to undergo tough-training. There were some who were sent into exile here.
At the present moment, these cultivators’ eyes fell upon an illusory barrier ahead. It was transparent like the heavenly barrier. They could feel the cold and gloomy atmosphere blended with a trace of ancient Qi inside the barrier.
“It seems that everyone is here. Behind this barrier is the ancient battlefield. The Inferno Hell is just a portal, a gateway, but why had Inferno City disappeared? It seems like it had been destroyed.” Big Yellow said.
Jiang Chen frowned. He knew how strong Inferno City was, not to mention that it was guarded by the blood talisman. Currently, no experts of Pure Land were here yet. Who is powerful enough to destroy Inferno City? This matter raised too many doubts. Anyhow, they wouldn’t be able to guess it. They needed to ask the cultivators here regarding the matter.
A powerful pressure rushed out of Jiang Chen’s body. This invisible pressure hovered in the void above. For an instant, everyone felt that breathing had become extremely difficult, as if their hearts were pressed by a mighty god.
The cultivators who were watching the barrier were immediately alarmed. They turned their heads around and saw Jiang Chen and his friends. Then, they fell to their knees with a puff. They couldn’t resist the strong spiritual pressure released, they could only kneel down on their knees.
“Don’t be afraid. I am Jiang Chen. I believe you have at least heard of my name before. I have come to save your lives,” said Jiang Chen.
“What? Jiang Chen. Jiang Chen has returned.”
“It’s him. I have seen him before. He is Jiang Chen. He hasn’t changed at all, but he is getting more and more powerful.”
“Yeah, the Qi he released made us feel like hell. It is overbearing, but what did he mean by saying that he was going to save our lives? Are we in a very dangerous situation now? What kind of existence is behind that barrier? That none of us is able to get in.”
Many people were surprised. Some raised their heads boldly but when they saw Jiang Chen’s face, they hastily put their heads down again.
“Let me ask you all, who was the one who destroyed the Inferno City?” Jiang Chen asked.
“Prince Jiang Chen, no one destroyed the Inferno City, it collapsed on its own.” Someone replied.
“What? Collapsed on its own?”
Han Yan sounded surprised.
“Yes. Not long ago, a barrier suddenly appeared in here. Then, the Inferno City broke down automatically. We saw a blood-red light rushing into the barrier. We tried to get in but we seemed to be blocked by some kind of invisible force. None of us could get in, so all of us are standing here, making predictions about it.” Someone said.
After hearing that, Jiang Chen and Big Yellow were both surprised. What these people said was definitely true. They wouldn’t dare to lie in front of them. Now, it seemed that the blood-red light was from the blood talisman. It seemed that after the emergence of this ancient battlefield, the blood talisman destroyed the Inferno City, going into the barrier. As to why these cultivators couldn’t get into the ancient battlefield, the best explanation for this was that their cultivation grade was too low. They should rejoice for staying outside the barrier, because they had no idea how many deadly dark souls and ‘things’ were born inside, for no one knew how long the ancient battlefield had existed. It was imaginable what the consequences would be if they got inside. It was sadly the case that they would be eaten by those devils after making a few steps in there.
“I have to say this to you all, behind this barrier is an ancient battlefield in which there’s an inestimable amount of evil ‘things’. With your cultivation grade, there is no doubt that you will die once you enter it. Besides, numerous experts will arrive here soon. If you all are involved in the competition among the experts, your deaths will be tragic. Those experts can blow you all to death with a simple breath. Presently, you are all waiting here in the Inferno Hell. What awaits you all will be only one thing – death.” Jiang Chen said aloud.
These words definitely weren’t just to scare them. The current circumstances in the Inferno Hell was no longer the former place of trial. These low cultivation grade cultivators would have to face their death sooner or later.
“Argh! What do we do now? The opening of the exit of Inferno Hell is months away. We can’t get out before that!”
“That’s right. Please help us, Prince Jiang. We know that Prince Jiang Chen must have ways to save all of us.”
“We don’t want to die here. Please save us, Prince Jiang.”
Many people were afraid. Although they knew that there were countless treasures in this ancient battlefield, they were people who knew their own limits. Like Jiang Chen had said, if they entered with their current cultivation grade, they were basically killing themselves. Even if they stayed outside the ancient battlefield, they would also die.
“I’ll get you all out of here.”
After he finished speaking, he grasped at the void, tearing open the spatial wall of Inferno Hell. With his present cultivation grade, it was a piece of cake for him to enter and exit this ancient battlefield.
A black spatial doorway was tore open by Jiang Chen’s hands. Outside the doorway was the Eastern Continent.
“Everyone, leave this place at once. Anyone who chooses to stay will die.”
Jiang Chen’s voice rolled through the air. The cultivators of Eastern Continent didn’t dare to slow down their responses. They rushed towards the black doorway, pushing one another, fearing that it would close up at any moment. All of them were very worried for their own lives.
A few thousand people vanished in less than a minute. All of them had gone out of Inferno Hell. Jiang Chen finally heaved a sigh of relief. Otherwise, no one knew how many thousands of people could walk out of Inferno Hell alive after the event.
The Inferno Hell suddenly turned very quiet. It lasted for not more than a minute, when a deafening explosion was heard. A dark spatial passageway emerged. Although no one was seen from there yet, they could already feel the incredible Qi from within.
At the same time, several more spatial passageways emerged simultaneously.
“They are the spatial passageways of the eight large families. Their response is quite fast.”
Big Yellow was amazed.
“A large number of experts have arrived, let’s go.”
Jiang Chen didn’t dare to neglect their arrival. He pulled Yan Chenyu and rushed into the barrier with Han Yan and Big Yellow. He wouldn’t want to meet the experts of the five large families here. He had no idea how many of them had come. If they really met each other outside the barrier, he was afraid that a large battle of life and death would be initiated, even before they entered the barrier.
He wanted to step into the ancient battlefield first to seek the blood talisman which would bring unimaginable benefits to him. Also, he could instinctively feel that if two blood talisman collided, it might bring him unexpected surprises.
