PMG Chapter 1399: Prajna – Ban Ruo – Fury
This time, it was the Qi Clan’s turn to choose again.
Emperor Qi’s eyes twinkled. Mu Feng’s strength was enigmatic and mysterious. Even he, as an emperor, couldn’t see through Mu Feng’s strength. Even Qi Qian Ren feared Mu Feng. Among all his sons, few had the potential to become emperors, but Qi Qian Xing was one of them. He was a cultivator of the very top of the Zun Qi layer, one step away from becoming an emperor.
Qi Qian Ren was one of them too. He was Emperor Qi’s youngest son, but his talent was incredible. He was even catching up with a few of his brothers.
Emperor Qi hesitated, whom should he send? Should he send Qi Qian Yun to fight against a cultivator at the top of the Zun Qi layer from Tiantai? If he sent Qi Qian Ren, would he fight against Mu Feng?
Tiantai had two cultivators at the top of the Zun Qi layer left, one of the eighth Zun Qi layer and one of the seventh Zun Qi layer: Hou Qing Lin. They were both difficult to fight against.
“I’ll go kill someone and come back!” said Qi Qian Ren indifferently. Then, he moved forwards and pointed at a medium-level Zun cultivator from Tiantai, but not Mu Feng.
Mu Feng looked at him coldly. Qi Qian Ren was Emperor Qi’s biological son, Qi Qian Xing’s brother. He was very strong, having broken through to the sixth Zun Qi layer while capable of killing cultivators of the eighth Zun Qi layer. He chose someone who wasn’t that strong, so it would be difficult for the one he had challenged. Qi Qian Ren seemed to be waiting for Mu Feng to choose him.
In fact, the crowd thought the same. Qi Qian Ren easily killed the medium-level Zun cultivator from Tiantai, leaving them with only nineteen people left.
After that, a strong cultivator from the Si Kong Clan also challenged a medium-level Zun cultivator from Tiantai and killed him, leaving them with only eighteen people left.
But the Qi Clan wasn’t that better off than Tiantai. When the Wen Clan and the Deva-Mara Palace’s turns came, they also killed two medium-level Zun cultivators from the Qi Clan. Then the Celestial Palace of the Immortals also killed one of their cultivators. However, the Mountain of Flowers and Fruit didn’t fight against a cultivator of the Qi Clan, after all, they still had people from the Bestial Imperial Palace to kill.
Nine people from the Qi Clan had already been eliminated. They only had twenty people left. They had six cultivators at the top of the Zun Qi layer and fourteen medium-level Zun cultivators left.
When it came to Tian Long Divine Castle’s turn, Emperor Tian Long didn’t allow a prince to fight against Mu Feng. He made a prince fight against Qiu Yue Xin. Qiu Yue Xin didn’t win, she actually jumped back to the ground and gave up. Now, Tiantai only had seventeen people.
After the Fire Mountain, Tiantai sent another weaker cultivator. He was eliminated and they only had sixteen people left.
There were no surprise picks during the second round. The Wen Clan, the Deva-Mara Palace and the Celestial Palace of the Immortals fought against the Qi Clan, while the Qi Clan, the Si Kong Clan and Tian Long Divine Castle fought against Tiantai. Including the cultivators Tiantai made forfeit, after three rounds, the Qi Clan had seventeen people left and Tiantai had twelve!
During the fourth round of battles, the members from the Qi Clan looked at the group of Tiantai, surprised by the twelve people who were left. Apart from the cultivator of the eighth Zun Qi layer, a cultivator of the sixth Zun Qi layer and Mu Feng, the nine others were the emperors’ direct disciples. Even though they had been discreet, they looked unfathomable.
“Qi Yao, inspect that cultivator of the sixth Zun Qi layer.” said Qi Xiao to his little brother, Qi Yao who had broken through to the sixth Zun Qi layer.
Qi Yao looked at Qi Qian Xing who nodded and said, “Go!”
Qi Yao landed on the stage and challenged the cultivator of the sixth Zun Qi layer.
Dazzling golden lights appeared as the cultivator from Tiantai opened his mouth widely and shouted furiously, “Argh…”
“Argh, argh argh…” terrifying golden lights suddenly emerged from his mouth, they looked like stars. Then a gigantic Buddha appeared behind that cultivator, he was holding a lotus in one hand and a sword in the other.
“Boom boom boom!” Qi Yao’s face turned deathly pale. He was terrified.
“Kaboom!” the sword appeared in front of him and instantly beheaded him.
“He deserved it!” thought the members of Tiantai looking at him. He practiced Buddhist cultivation just like Tian Chi the Buddhist monk.
“That was a mantra which kills people for their sins to bring them to their salvation.” people from the Celestial Thunder Temple were surprised and amazed. That guy should have joined the Celestial Thunder Temple, but he joined Tiantai instead.
“Qi Yao!” shouted Qi Xiao, staring at his brother’s corpse. He felt guilty for indirectly killing his brother.
He looked at the strong cultivators from Tiantai in a cold way. The strong cultivator quickly went back to Emperor Yu’s side.
Emperor Yu looked at the Qi Clan and said, “I’ve never introduced you to our twelfth direct disciple, since his Buddhist name is Prajna.” (translator’s note: “ban ruo” in Chinese is the transcription of “prajna” in Sanskrit, it means “wisdom” and it’s one of the six paramitas)
“If he’s one of the emperors’ direct disciples, apart from that cultivator of the eighth Zun Qi layer and Mu Chen, all the others are the emperors’ direct disciples!” thought the crowd. Many of Tiantai’s cultivators had been eliminated, but they had also made some of their cultivators get eliminated on purpose.
The Qi Clan had sixteen people left: six top-level Zun cultivators and ten medium-level Zun cultivators, almost like Tiantai.
Then, it was the Si Kong Clan’s turn, but they didn’t know what to do. Whom could they choose amongst those twelve cultivators?
Finally, they chose a cultivator at the top of the fifth Zun Qi layer. He landed on the battle stage and glanced at Mu Feng, Ban Ruo, Tian Chi, Ruo Xie.
“You, come here.” said the strong cultivator from the Si Kong Clan, pointing at someone. It was a cultivator of the fourth Zun Qi layer. His Qi wasn’t that amazing and he looked calm and serene, both ordinary and simple.
“Sky Fissure, die!” shouted the Si Kong Clan’s cultivator as soon as Tiantai’s cultivator landed on the stage. He immediately punched the air in the direction that Tiantai’s cultivator and created a fissure in the air.
“Bzzz!” the cultivator from Tiantai suddenly disappeared.
“Speed abstruse energy. His energy is extremely rich, thick and pure.” thought the crowd, amazed. The cultivator from Tiantai suddenly turned around and raised five fingers.
“Tune Fingering!” the crowd was astonished. He was using a finger attack which utilized musical vibrations through the air. It contained terrifying energies which could make cultivators go insane.
“Die!” shouted the cultivator from the Si Kong Clan. His eyes gradually became lifeless and he didn’t look as strong as before.
The music continued and like funeral music, it was gloomy and sad. The space around them became distorted, so the cultivator from the Si Kong Clan immediately released his blood strength and spirit. He wanted to break free, but he realized he couldn’t.
“An illusion!” the crowd just realized. Not only were there soundwave abstruse energies, but there were also illusion abstruse energies.
“The Si Kong Clan is going to lose that battle.” thought the crowd.
After a short time, the cultivator from the Si Kong Clan wailed painfully, his eyes were filled with sorrow as explosions suddenly sounded. The cultivator from the Si Kong Clan made himself explode, he actually committed suicide!
The calm and serene looking young man went back to Emperor Yu.
Mu Feng was surprised. The emperor’s direct disciples were incredible. They were Tiantai’s trump cards. His song was similar to his Nine Netherworlds Demonic Song, but the Nine Netherworlds Demonic Song also required the usage of his vision as opposed to just sound.
