PMG Chapter 1785: Yan Di the Deployment Spell Master
After the statues, there rose a golden palace. At that moment, many people were there. However, they were all stuck, as there was an illusion deployment spell in front of them.
Many people were stuck in that illusion spell. Some of them were astonishingly strong, such as Empress Xi and the Netherworld demonic Emperor, but they still couldn’t cross the illusion spell.
Boom! Someone groaned with pain. Someone was attacked, and the crowd moved away. The person crashed onto the ground, already a cold and rigid corpse.
Another deployment spell caster died, thought the watchers in astonishment. Nobody dared act carelessly, after all, they were already strong cultivators. Even if they weren’t great emperors, they were high-level emperors! Their strength was restrained in here, however. Even people from the Moon Palace were stuck!
At that moment, the celestial women walked out in line.
“Milady, someone seems to be controlling that deployment spell, it keeps changing all the time. I can’t change it!” one of the celestial women informed her, pulling a long face. Behind her, there were many deployment spell casters.
“Are you sure?” asked Empress Xi calmly. She didn’t seem to be worried.
“Milady, for sure, it keeps changing all the time. We keep failing, otherwise, we would have broken it already!” said another one.
Empress Xi’s beautiful eyes glittered. “The strong cultivators of the Celestial Evolution Holy Clan are dead already. If there’s anyone alive, it can only be a thread of Will. Until now, the traps looked more like tests, so there’s no reason that we can’t continue.”
Empress Xi then looked at the deployment spell and wondered, “Yan Di, did you arrive before everyone else?”
“Yan Di?” The others frowned. There were many people from the Vast Celestial Ancient City in the crowd. Older people knew about Yan Di, the crown prince of the Celestial Evolution Holy Clan. Even the strong cultivators of the ancient holy clans would not forget about him.
At that moment, a voice spoke out and said, “Empress Xi, back then, where did you seal your soul and godly awareness?”
“In my grave, in a book,”Empress Xi answered calmly. The crowd frowned. That deployment spell was a person? A voice came from there and was making fun of Empress Xi.
“The Three Lives Scriptures had been broken. I should have thought about it. You sealed your godly awareness and soul in a book. You didn’t die for cultivation. You had two goals: the first one was to recover, and the second one was that you wanted to study the ancient scriptures for a thousand years.”
“Three Lives Scriptures!” The crowd was astonished and shook with greed. Were the rumors true? Was there anything between Empress Xi and the Three Lives great emperor? Had the Celestial Evolution Holy Clan really been destroyed because of the Three Lives great emperor?
Empress Xi had been injured back then, she had sealed her consciousness and soul in the Three Lives Scriptures, and recovered and studied the Three Lives Scriptures for a thousand years.
The crowd watched Empress Xi. She didn’t say anything, as if the voice was right.
Silence, and then, “The Celestial Evolution Holy Clan’s ancient palace was created by the ancestors. Indeed, there were tests in here. The reason was to find a genius, transmit the secrets of the Celestial Evolution Holy Clan to them, and allow the Celestial Evolution Holy Clan to revive. The second reason was to wait for me if I didn’t die.
“Luckily, I’m alive and now I’m back in the palace. Today, my enemies are here, too. If anyone kills Empress Xi, I agree to transmit the legacy of the Celestial Evolution Holy Clan to them, including the Celestial Evolution Holy Scriptures, and the Celestial Deployment Spells,” the hoarse voice informed them.
The crowd was astonished, kill Empress Xi? And obtain the legacy of the Celestial Evolution Holy Clan?
“Kill Empress Xi!”
At that moment, the crowd looked at Empress Xi. If they killed her, they would need to kill the demonic emperor as well, but it also meant that they might offend the Three Lives great emperor!
“Empress Xi’s cultivation is restrained, you really have an opportunity. All the people who contribute will obtain the Three Lives Scriptures!” the hoarse voice continued. Many people were getting excited. Empress Xi and the Netherworld Demonic Emperor’s cultivation were suppressed, they were both low-level emperors in here. Everybody had the possibility to kill them.
The Netherworld Demonic Emperor slowly turned around and looked at the crowd, the Nine Netherworlds flowed in the air. People’s hearts were pounding. They protected their wills with their godly awareness, some people who had weak wills sensed that they were losing control.
What a terrifying Nine Netherworlds Song will!, thought the crowd with a shiver. The Netherworld demonic Emperor watched the crowd coldly, and his energies slowly dispersed. He didn’t say anything at all the entire time.
The Netherworld Demonic Emperor’s Demonic Song has already reached the acme of perfection. His cultivation is incredible. In the blink of an eye, he can sing his Song and corrode someone’s will. Even if his cultivation is suppressed, with his Nine Netherworlds Demonic Song, he will take control of many people…, thought the crowd. They hesitated even more, not knowing what to do. Nobody dared attack Empress Xi. Even if they really killed her, they knew that the first people who attacked her would die. Therefore, nobody dared make the first step. They preferred waiting for someone else to start.
At that moment, more and more people arrived, including Lin Feng and the others. They didn’t know what was going on, however. They just glanced around at the golden room and remained silent.
“You don’t dare kill Empress Xi it seems!,” prodded the voice. Lin Feng frowned. He recognized that voice, it was familiar to him.
Yan Di. He didn’t change his voice, thought Lin Feng. That guy was already in the palace!
“Since you don’t dare kill her, I’ll give you a chance. Out of ten people, if one of you kills nine others, then I’ll let them come into the deployment spell and I’ll transmit the legacy of the Celestial Evolution Holy Clan to them, and allow them to help the Celestial Evolution Holy Clan come back to life,” said the hoarse voice coldly.
The crowd was stupefied, one person? Kill nine others?
“My people, let’s destroy the deployment spell. He’s alone. Even if he can change the deployment spell, if you join hands, his deployment spells won’t stop us,” said Empress Xi, “If we break the deployment spell, we’ll be able to kill him. Of course, we’ll also be able to obtain everything that’s in the palace.”
“Everybody, let’s walk abreast, we can control deployment spells. Let’s join hands with the celestial women, we can break the deployment spell!” agreed a deployment spell caster. Killing Empress Xi was impossible, killing nine people was difficult too, maybe they would die, the two options were very dangerous. Trying to break the deployment spell was risky too, but if they joined hands with everybody else, it wasn’t that dangerous.
“I agree!” said someone else.
“We’ve so many people, let’s just overwhelm the deployment spell. We’ll definitely manage to break it!” spoke up someone else. After all, in that ancient palace, cultivation levels were restrained. They didn’t believe that so many strong cultivators couldn’t break a deployment spell.
Very quickly, everybody agreed and got ready to break the deployment spell.
Lin Feng was alarmed for Yan Di. If those people managed to break the deployment spell, then Yan Di would be in danger!
“Everyone must participate, otherwise, we’ll kill them!” said a strong cultivator, sharply glancing at the crowd.
“Now, everybody come next to the deployment spell, deployment spell casters in the middle, the celestial women can help from behind since they modify energies. Even if there are tensions between some of you, now, forget about them and join hands to break the deployment spell!” ordered another strong cultivator. Many people joined the line.
Lin Feng and the others also stood before the deployment spell. Who dared not to join? They had no choice. They had little choice but to obey stronger cultivators, even if their cultivation levels were restrained in there.
“Everybody, attack!” came the order. Instantly, a massive amount of Qi invaded the atmosphere and rolled out in mighty waves, thundering madly as they assaulted the deployment spell ahead of them. However, the energies immediately dispersed!
“That’s a gigantic deployment spell. It’s very difficult to break it with strength!” a deployment spell caster spoke up.
“Everybody, walk forward at the same time!” came the order. The crowd stepped forwards. However, at that moment, they realized that they were stuck in fog.
“Let’s continue attacking!” said another strong cultivator. Hundreds and hundreds of threads of energies spread out in the air, but nothing worked.
“You want to bring about your own destruction,” an amused voice spoke up. The crowd then saw marks on the ground which started glowing.
“Oh no, the deployment spells are changing by themselves. Back!” shouted someone. The crowd started running backwards, but it was already too late. The deployment spell absorbed them and suddenly they sensed that they were being teleported and separated.
