Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 986
The Chaos in Western Domain
The situation intensified. To the experts of the six major palaces, personally demanding for Jiang Chen’s family was already a very shameless practice on itself. If they struck at their opponents because of this shameless demand, they would truly put the faces of the six major palaces to shame.
What was more important was that there were so many Eighth Grade Great Saints guarding here. If a battle really started, they wouldn’t be able to gain the upper hand and would probably leave a stink for ten thousand years. After all, Gu Family was hiding the family members of Jiang Chen not Jiang Chen himself.
There was one more important thing. Currently, the Law Enforcement Palace was no longer in Desolate Palace’s control but in Gu Palace instead. Therefore, despite the fact that they were the experts of Desolate Palace, they wouldn’t dare act indiscriminately.
“What should we do now?”
Asked an expert of Shi Palace.
“What else can we do? They have already made adequate preparations. Even if the fight was started, we didn’t have a reasonable excuse. If we did it by force, we might not be able to get what we wanted and instead, gave them an excuse to attack us. Now that the Law Enforcement Palace is in the control of Gu Palace and Demon Palace, we should hurry back to Saint Origin Palace. I don’t think that Jiang Chen can hide for so long.”
Said Desolate Wuleng. The rest also nodded in agreement. Today, their plan to use Jiang Chen’s family to threaten him had failed, and Jiang Chen wasn’t found yet. So, it was pointless for them to continue staying here. They might as well return to Saint Origin Palace and find out more about Jiang Chen’s whereabouts.
“Gu Family, Demon Race, your efforts of defending Jiang Chen is going against the six major families. You two families won’t have a good end.”
Before Desolate Wuleng left, he said ruthlessly.
“We don’t need you to worry about it.”
Gu Laoqi waved his sleeve, motioned for Desolate Wuleng to scram.
In the next few days, Saint Origin Palace wasn’t able to find its peace, especially in the six major palaces. They were utterly agitated. The big incident that happened in the Pure Land had already spread all over the entire Saint Origin Palace and Jiang Chen’s name swept through every corner, like a whirlwind, causing innumerable clamours and shock.
“Who the hell is that Jiang Chen? Why haven’t we heard of him before?”
“Damn! That bastard has actually killed so many of our people? That’s a tremendous shame. We have to find him and get rid of him.”
“The six patriarch of the six families were killed. Nothing like this has ever happened. I can’t believe that such an insane person has appeared in the Pure Land.”
“I know that man. He has killed many experts of the six major families in the ancient battlefield. Then, he was killed by the joint attack of the six patriarchs, but no one thought that he was still alive. This man is a rare genius that hardly appear in ten thousand years. He will surely become the source of a great disaster if he isn’t eliminated.”
Everyone was so immersed in their own discussions. None among the six major palaces weren’t gnashing their teeth. It was truly detestable. Their hatred was higher than the sky and deeper than the ocean. The previous battle in the ancient battlefield that was insignificant to Saint Origin Palace had now caught their attention, making Jiang Chen a celebrity.
However, they still couldn’t find Jiang Chen, giving them no chance to take their revenge. In these few days, the palace masters of the six major palaces personally conduct the search but found nothing about Jiang Chen, as though he didn’t exist at all.
Of course, it would be a miracle if they were able to find him now, as Jiang Chen was currently inside the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda, which completely isolated him from the outside world. Therefore, no one would be able to find him. Plus, he cultivated the dragon transformation skill and proficient in Great Soul Derivation Technique. If he made the effort to conceal himself, you wouldn’t discover his presence, even if he was standing right in front of you.
A troublesome man called Gu Chen had appeared in Saint Origin Palace while another wild man named Jiang Chen had emerged in the Pure Land. A new wave arose just as the previous one had barely subsided. Saint Origin World had existed for so long and these two outstanding talents emerged out of nowhere all of a sudden. However, no one from the major six palaces was able to link the two together. Who would have thought that Jiang Chen and Gu Chen would be the exact same person?
During these days, Jiang Chen had been enclosed in the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda. The pagoda was a sacred treasure. There were still many wonderful uses of the pagoda waiting for him to discover, but given his current circumstance, it was very difficult for him to explore the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda. Cultivation was one thing while the levels of the pagoda was another. Compared to the maximum level of the pagoda, three levels is really too weak. Many of its functions couldn’t be used yet, let alone explore their uses.
A few days later, war drums reverberated in the sky of Saint Origin Palace. This wasn’t coming from Gu Palace. It was from the Law Enforcement Palace. At this critical juncture, the Law Enforcement Place would represent Saint Origin Palace and command the eight major palaces.
“What’s going on? I have never heard drums like this in Saint Origin Palace. However, drum beats usually indicates that a crisis is about to happen.”
He kept the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda and walked out of the courtyard. The second he appeared, Gu Liufeng and Gu Liuying were just outside the courtyard seemingly looking for him. Beside them was another young genius named Gu Shuangtan, the one who engaged in a tit-for-tat with Desolate Palace in the Refining Tower. He already had a terrifying cultivation– Sixth Grade Great Saint.
“Little Chen, you have come out from your seclusion.”
Seeing Jiang Chen walking out, Gu Liufeng quickly greeted,
“En. Greetings brother Gu.”
Jiang Chen clasped his fists at Gu Shuangtan.
“There is no need for formalities. We are family. Besides, Gu Chen, you are now a great meritorious disciple of Gu Palace.”
Said Gu Shuangtan with a smile. Despite his status, he still used a polite tone while speaking to Jiang Chen and wouldn’t dare be neglectful. He was very clear that although his cultivation base was stronger and higher than Jiang Chen’s, his innate talent wasn’t even half of Jiang Chen’s. It was only a matter of time for Jiang Chen catch up to him or even surpass him.
“Brother Gu is overly polite. By the way, what was that sound of the drum about?”
Asked Jiang Chen.
“That is the war drum of the Law Enforcement Palace. In Saint Origin Palace, any critical issue will be directed by the Law Enforcement Palace. I heard that it’s the chaos in Western Domain. The Great Lightning Tune Temple is sending a distress signal to us.”
Said Gu Shuangtan.
“Is it because of the rebellion of the Devil World?”
Jiang Chen looked startled to learn that there was an upheaval in Western Domain. It had to be the rebellion of the devils in the Devil World; if The Great Lightning Tune Temple was seeking help from Saint Origin Palace.
“You are right. The Devil World is the converging spot of the Devil Race. After years of recuperation, they are now making a comeback, wanting to dominate the Western Domain. As the Buddha Sect in Great Lightning Tune Temple was declining, it was no longer possible for them to defend the invasion of the devil armies. The eight major families of the Pure Land has joined the battle but due to the many experts of the six major families being killed by a person named Jiang Chen, their overall strength has dropped drastically. Those devils have become strong and overbearing after their recuperation. Only Saint Origin Palace has the capability to suppress the devil army now. Therefore, the Law Enforcement Palace has sounded the war drum, probably to command us to remove the devil army in Western Domain. You know, although there are numerous geniuses in Saint Origin Palace, most of them had luxurious lives, only very little of them has experience life-and-death trial. So, this task is certainly a very good chance for them to experience the trial. The eight palaces hoped that their disciples would be able to participate in the war, to help remove the devils.”
Said Gu Shuangtan.
“So that’s what it is all about. The Devil Race is able to multiply very quickly. After so many years of recuperation, and given the fact that Buddha Sect was declining day after day, they naturally couldn’t resist the wild attacks of the Devil race. Plus, there is a powerful Ninth Grade Devil Saint in the Devil World. If Saint Origin Palace doesn’t interfere, not just Western Domain, the entire Saint Origin World will soon fall into the enemy’s hands.”
Said Jiang Chen. The rebellion of the Devil Race was within his predictions. He had entered the Devil World several times and could sense the growing strength of the Devil Race. In the history of Saint Origin World, human cultivators had been in innumerable wars with the Devil Race, but they were unable to thoroughly eliminate them.
If the weeds were not uprooted, they would grow again during spring. It was absolutely not an easy task to completely destroy the obstinate Devil Race.
“Little Chen, we have already prepared to kill the devils in Western Domain, would you like to come with us?”
Asked Gu Liufeng.
“Of course, how can I be excluded from such an event?”
Jiang Chen’s Qi fluctuated. In fact, he was worrying how to further improve his cultivation but now, the devil race has just become his biggest prey. Not only did they exist in large numbers, their physiques and essence were also strong. These could undeniably improve his cultivation and help condense more levels in the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda.
The reason why Jiang Chen didn’t begin a massacre in the Devil World was because there were a few truly powerful Devil Saints that existed in it. If he continued his massacre in that place, he would draw the attention of those formidable Devil Saints, which would be very unfavourable to him.
The current situation however was different. The devils were no longer in the Devil World. All of them had gone to invade the Western Domain and the experts of Saint Origin Palace were needed to take action. Naturally, those very powerful Devil Saints would be dealt with by those powerful Great Saints. The senior experts of Saint Origin Palace wouldn’t allow the Devil Saints to massacre their geniuses.
This way, it had created a very favourable condition for Jiang Chen. The battlefield of the devils would become his advantage. With the Edifying Light and Ancestral Dragon Pagoda, he was the absolute nemesis of the devils.
In other words, the chaos in Western Domain had created a golden opportunity for him. As such, he needed to grasp it properly.
“Alright, let’s head over to the Law Enforcement Palace to have a look. There should be a lot of people going to the trial in Western Domain this time.”
Said Gu Shuangtan.
Subsequently, a group of people flew towards the Law Enforcement Palace. By the time they arrived, there were already plenty of people gathered in the square. They were the Great Saint experts from the eight major palaces. The rebellion of the devils was a crisis and needed the participation of Saint Origin Palace. Whether or not they would be needed in the battlefield or not, they would know it once they arrived at the scene.
The instant Jiang Chen and the others appeared in the square, a pair of gaze fell upon his body, like a chilling sharp sword, making him feel extremely uncomfortable.
When he turned, he saw an Eighth Grade Great Saint elder from Desolate Palace camp glaring at him. This man was the one who wanted to exploit Jiang Chen’s family several days ago; he was Desolate Wuleng.
