Violent gale whistling. The Elder’s Palace was located on the summit of the mountain. Above this mountaintop and amongst the whistling gale, Qin Yu was currently bidding his farewell to Elder Liu Tong, Wen Feng and the other five Enforcers.
“Lord Liu Xing, you do not have a Transmission Spiritual Pearl?” Upon hearing Qin Yu’s response, Elder Liu Tong was shocked.
Qin Yu nodded and smiled. “Back when I was drifting and training amongst the cosmos, there was no need for a Transmission Spiritual Pearl. Thus, I had never gone to purchase one. What? Is that very strange?”
Qin Yu was instead blushing with shame in his heart. Of course he possess a Transmission Spiritual Pearl. Merely, the Transmission Spiritual Pearl that he had was created by the people from the Immortal Realm. It was likely that if he were to take it out, then he’ll immediately incite the suspicions of others.
“So that’s what happened.” Elder Liu Tong suddenly understood. Immediately after, Elder Liu Tong said with a straight face. “Lord Liu Xing, it’s one thing that you do not possess a Transmission Spiritual Pearl before as you were an Interstellar Cultivator. However now, you are an Emperor level expert from our Deep Mulberry Star. If something were to happen to our Deep Mulberry Star, we might have to ask Lord Liu Xing for help. However, if you do not possess a Transmission Spiritual Pearl, it would become very hard for us to find you. I have a Transmission Spiritual Pearl here. If Lord Liu Xing do not mind about it, then please accept it.”
Upon seeing that Transmission Spiritual Pearl in the Elder’s hand, Qin Yu was unable to refrain from smiling.
This Elder Liu Tong was indeed someone who knows how to conduct himself.
“Liu Xing, you should accept it. In the future, if I have anything that I need to find you for, I could also contact you through the Transmission Spiritual Pearl.” The leader of the Enforcers Wen Feng also said to Qin Yu.
“In that case, I shall accept it.”
Qin Yu received the Transmission Spiritual Pearl. He then exchanged soul imprints in the Transmission Spiritual Pearl with Elder Liu Tong and Wen Feng so that they could contact each other.
“Now that I’ve obtained a Transmission Spiritual Pearl, all that remains is an Interstellar Map.” Qin Yu was very satisfied.
It was truly complicated for a foreigner like him to enter the interior sections of the Dark Star Realm. Especially during the moment when he was being inspected before being granted a Stellar Identity Crystal. At that time, Qin Yu was truly worried that he would be discovered. According to Qin Yu’s own deduction, the reason why he was not discovered was all because of the ‘Stellar Space.’
If it were someone else, it would be absolutely impossible for them to be able to pass the inspection.
“Wen Feng, I have never been to the Trial Dark Stars nor do I know how to get there. Might you have the Interstellar Map with the way to the Trial Dark Stars?” Qin Yu looked to Wen Feng.
The goods that this fifteen star Emperor level expert would take out was most definitely not of inferior quality. Therefore, Qin Yu did not ask Elder Liu Tong but instead asked the leader of the Enforcers, Wen Feng.
Wen Feng’s lips were slightly raised. A smiling intent was in his eyes. “Liu Xing, I truly must admire you. To be able to reach such a level without ever setting foot on the Trial Dark Stars. This Interstellar Map is the Map of the entire Dark Star Realm. Each of us Enforcers possesss one.” As he said that, Wen Feng handed Qin Yu a jade-slip like crystal.
After receiving the crystal, Qin Yu swept through it with his Soul’s Power.
Inside the crystal was an Interstellar Map. This Interstellar Map was extremely large. It actually contained all nine great star fields of the Dark Star Realm and was extremely detailed. Furthermore, it also marked the location of the Bewitching God Temple.
Qin Yu was overjoyed.
With this detailed Interstellar Map, no matter how big the Dark Star Realm might be, he was now able to go wherever he wanted.
“Wen Feng, thank you. As I have never been to the Trial Dark Stars before, I am truly filled with anticipation now.” Laughed Qin Yu. Qin Yu had his own determination regarding the Dark Stars.
He had once seen the introductions of the Dark Stars from his master Lei Wei’s Science and Technology Universe.
White Dwarf, Neutron Star and other planets like them. The density of their gravity was extremely intense. However, Qin Yu had also discovered something… the planets of the Science and Technology Universe, that his master Lei Wei was from, seemed to not be very big for the most part.
For example, planets like his hometown, the Purple Mystic Star. Super planets like such with diameters over a hundred billion miles were something that had never been discovered before in the Science and Technology Universe. Furthermore, they were determined to be planets that were unlikely to exist.
“The Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm, as a cosmic space that is a stage higher than the Mortal Realm, how might the Dark Star here be different than the Dark Stars of the Mortal Realm?” Qin Yu started to guess in his heart.
“Qin Yu, as it is your first time going to the Dark Stars. There are a couple things you must take note of.” Wen Feng’s expression suddenly turned serious as he spoke. “When you are transferred to the Trial Dark Star from the Trial Sacred Planet, it’s best for you to put both of your hands and legs on the floor when you’re in the Conveying Array. If you were to do that, then it would allow the pressure that your body would bear to become a bit smaller. If you were to rely only on your two legs, then if the gravity were to become too frightening, it is possible for the gravity to crush your bones to powder.”
Upon hearing those words, Qin Yu was unable to refrain his shock.
Hands and legs on the ground, what’s with that?
“Furthermore, do not overestimate yourself when selecting the Trial Dark Star to enter. You must try to conserve as much as possible. You should only enter the next Trial Dark Star after being able to stand still while holding a ‘Dark Star Piece’, that weighs twice your weight.” Wen Feng continued. Afterwards, he smiled. “I’m going to stop. I had forgotten that these were all things that you’ll be taught once you reach the Trial Sacred Planet.”
Trial Sacred Planet?
Qin Yu only knew about the Thirty Six Trial Dark Stars. He did not know what the Trial Sacred Planet was.
“What is the Trial Sacred Planet?” Qin Yu asked.
Elder Liu Tong who stood to the side sighed and said. “Lord Liu Xing, you don’t even know about the Trial Sacred Planet? It would appear that you’re truly lacking knowledge in this field. Let me tell you. The Three Great Core Planets of the Dark Star Realm’s Three Great Star Fields, are the Three Great Sacred Planets. They are respectively the Gold Punishment Sacred Planet, Black Flame Sacred Planet and the White Profound Sacred Planet. Other than those three Great Sacred Planets, there is another planet called ‘Sacred Planet.’ That is the Trial Sacred Planet.”
Wen Feng continued. “Liu Xing, the Thirty Six Trial Dark Stars are respectively the Eighteen Emperor Level Trial Dark Stars and Eighteen King Level Trial Dark Stars. And in order to reach the Thirty Six Trial Dark Stars, one must reach the Trial Sacred Planet. This Trial Sacred Planet is the transfer planet that leads to the Thirty Six Trial Dark Stars!”
Qin Yu suddenly realized.
Wasn’t it just a transferring planet?
However, after carefully thinking about it. Qin Yu came to realize that this ‘Trial Sacred Planet’ was likely even more bustling than the other three Sacred Planets. After all, more than half of the Dark Star Realm’s experts were gathered on the Thirty Six Trial Dark Stars. Experts would most certainly frequently appear on this sole transfer planet.
Elder Liu Tong said. “My teacher once said to me, that there are an extremely number of experts on the Trial Sacred Planet. Even Emperor level experts were commonly seen there. Thus, it is better for one to be restrained there.”
“Elder Liu Tong, you don’t have to say those words to Liu Xing.” Said Wen Feng.
“Oh, right, I’ve forgotten.” Elder Liu Tong laughed at himself. “There are not many people in the Dark Star Realm who are stronger than Lord Liu Xing.”
Qin Yu slightly arranged the new information he obtained, in his mind. He then said to Elder Liu Tong and Wen Feng. “Elder Liu Tong, Wen Feng, I shall be taking my leave toward the Trial Dark Star.”
“Take care, Lord Liu Xing.” Said Elder Liu Tong respectfully. As for Wen Feng, he saw Qin Yu off with his gaze.
Qin Yu’s figure turned into a ray of light and flew away from the mountaintop. His figure shot into the horizon. Afterwards, it disappeared.
Qin Yu did not use the Interstellar Conveying Array to proceed toward the Trial Sacred Planet. Since he now possessed the Interstellar Map of the Dark Star Realm, he had decided to directly use Greater Teleportation to rapidly proceed toward the Trial Sacred Planet.
Trial Sacred Planet.
It was a planet with a diameter of over a million miles. The Trial Dark Star could be considered as the planet in the Dark Star Realm that contained the most experts. On this Trial Dark Star, there are thirty six extremely tall buildings.
All thirty six of these extremely tall buildings have ninety nine floors. As for the other buildings on this planet, the tallest among them was merely ten floors tall. Naturally, the thirty six ninety nine floor tall buildings were extremely eye-catching. The reason why the constructions on this planet was like so, was because of the rules of the Trial Sacred Planet. The rules were like this because the thirty six, ninety nine floors buildings housed the experts participating in the Trials.
On top of each of the thirty six, ninety nine floor tall buildings were a layer of words. They were respectively ‘One Star King Level, Two Star King Level, up to Eighteen Star King Level, One Star Emperor Level, Two Star Emperor Level, up to Eighteen Star Emperor Level.’
Groups of males and females were currently walking about the street.
Almost everyone possessed the same kind of aura. The kind of aura that all cultivators that had trained hard possessed — the tenacious aura. There were also a lot of such people in the stores and restaurants of the Trial Sacred Planet that possessed such aura.
A youth wearing a black gown and possessed long hair that trailed over his shoulders, was walking on the street.
“There are indeed a lot of experts here.” Qin Yu looked at his surroundings. “Eh? What’s happening?” Qin Yu looked to a tall building not far away with a puzzled expression. This tall building was ninety nine floors tall. Looking from afar, one could clearly see the words on it — ‘Eighteen Star Emperor Level.’
“It ought to be that Eighteen Star Emperor level experts are very sparse. But why is it that there are the most people gathered there?” Qin Yu was a bit confused. He started to walk toward the direction of the Eighteen Star Emperor Level building.
According to Qin Yu’s understanding.
These thirty six tall buildings were there as the residences of the cultivators undergoing the Trials. The first floor was for drinking and eating whereas the second floor and above were the living spaces. The cultivators were able to eat and drink for free on those buildings.
Upon entering the Eighteen Star Emperor Level building, Qin Yu heard a large clamor.
“Lord Yu Yang, I heard that you’ve successfully managed to train in the Eight Star Emperor Level Dark Star. I suspect you’re about to step into the Nine Star Emperor Level Dark Star soon.”
“Most definitely not. Although I have trained on the Eight Star Emperor Level Dark Star for over three thousand years, but I reckon it’ll still take me a couple hundred more years before I could step into the Nine Star Emperor Level Dark Star.”
“Hey, check please.”
“Thirty six Low Quality Elemental Spirit Stones.”
The noisiness directly entered into Qin Yu’s ears. However, with Qin Yu’s sharp sense of hearing, he was still able to hear a lot of the dialogues. Qin Yu was unable to refrain from being puzzled. It seemed that these people were not eighteen star Emperor level.
“Why is it this noisy?” Qin Yu was confused and decided to enter into the building through the main entrance.
Right when Qin Yu entered into through the entrance, a triangular prism shaped crystal pillar located on top of the entrance started to emit a misty light that enveloped Qin Yu’s entire body. Upon looking at the crystal pillar, Qin Yu noticed that this crystal pillar appeared very similar to the crystal pillar that Elder Liu Tong had used to inspect him.
After entering from the main entrance, Qin Yu reached an enormous lounge with a length and width of several hundred meters. In the middle of the lounge was a Conveying Array. Beside the Conveying Array was a long bearded old man who currently had his eyes closed. This Conveying Array was evidently used to send people to the Eighteen Star Emperor Level Dark Star.
This first floor occupied a very large space. Other than this several hundred meters long and wide lounge, there was an even larger restaurant. At this moment, several hundred people were gathered in that restaurant eating and drinking.
The triangular prism shaped crystal pillar located on top of the main entrance stopped radiating the misty light. However, a ray of light was shot out from the peak of the pillar. The ray of light landed on that red sphere on top of the lounge.
“Ding!” A clear ring sound echoed through the entire first floor. Almost instantly, the first floor grew completely quiet, including the several hundred people that were drinking and eating.
“Huff!” In a blink of an eye, those several hundred cultivators had all rushed into the lounge. Almost everyone looked to the entrance… only Qin Yu was standing there.
“Elder, an advanced level Emperor level expert had arrived!” A waiter immediately shouted to the long bearded old man that seemed to have already fallen asleep. “Lord Elder, wake up!”
“Mn?” That long bearded old man who had his eyes closed suddenly opened his eyes wide. He looked to that red sphere on top of the lounge. At this moment, that red sphere was radiating a dazzling light. Unable to believe what he saw, that long bearded old man rubbed his eyes.
And at this moment, the several hundred people who had been surrounding Qin Yu started to discuss with each other.
“It’s an advanced Emperor level expert. At the very least a twelve star Emperor level expert. He don’t have the Black Flame Sect’s fiery aura nor do he have the White Profound Sect’s cold aura, it’s clear that he’s from the Gold Punishment Sect. From my recollection, there doesn’t seem to be anyone from the Gold Punishment Sect that has reached fifteen star Emperor level!”
“There is! For this Lord to come here, could it be that he’s an eighteen star Emperor level expert? I’ve heard that not long ago there was an eighteen star Emperor level expert who came out from this Conveying Array. At that time, I was also here.”
“Quiet!” The long bearded old man seemed to have completely woken up. He suddenly shouted to those group of people.
Those several hundred people immediately grew quiet. At this moment, that long bearded old man slowly walked to Qin Yu. Respectfully, he said. “I am Elder Liu Yu. I have been the supervisor of the Eighteen Star Emperor Level Dark Star’s Conveying Array the entire time. May I ask what business Your Lordship has in coming? Is it to enter the Eighteen Star Emperor Level Dark Star?”
Elder Liu Tong carefully looked at the man standing in front of him. He muttered in his heart. “Mn, from his aura, it doesn’t look like he’s from the Black Flame Sect or the White Profound Sect. I reckon he’s from the Gold Punishment Sect. Ah, could it be that someone who’s daring to enter the Eighteen Star Emperor Level Trial Dark Star had appeared from the Gold Punishment Sect?”
“No, I have not reached that level yet.” Qin Yu immediately said.
Qin Yu was instead shocked greatly. He had just entered but that triangular prism shaped crystal pillar had already displayed his strength and even caused attracted the attention of a great amount of people.
“What is exactly happening here? Is an advanced level Emperor level expert worthy of being shown such a scene?” Qin Yu felt a bit aggrieved.
What Qin Yu didn’t know however, was this.
Advanced Emperor level experts were extremely sparse to begin with. Usually, it was hard for people here to even encounter one in several tens of years. The most important matter was… this building is connected to the ‘Eighteen Star Emperor Level Dark Star.” For someone to come here and also be an advanced level Emperor, it was possible for that person to be an eighteen star Emperor level expert. It was only because of that that a large amount of people became shocked like so.
“Oh. It is our honor for Your Lordship to come here. Over there is the location for you to dine at. Your Lordship is able to enjoy everything at half off here.” That Elder Liu Yu hurriedly said. If one was not an advanced level Emperor level expert, one must pay the full price here. Ordinary advanced level Emperor level experts were able to enjoy everything at half price. Only eighteen star Emperor level experts were able to enjoy everything for free.
Qin Yu nodded. “I understand. Farewell.” After he finished, Qin Yu directly left here.
“Understand? Understand what?” That Elder Liu Yu was a bit puzzled.
When Qin Yu heard about the ‘half price off,’ he realized the reason why those people were there eating and drinking. Logically, eighteen star Emperor level experts would be able to enjoy the meals and lounge there for free. Seems like those group of people have to spend money there. No wonder they were able to gather there.
After leaving the ‘Eighteen Star Emperor Level Building,’ Qin Yu walked toward another tall building… the Fourteen Star Emperor Level Building!
