Book 14 – The New Sovereign – Chapter 26 – The Gathering of the Three Great Sovereigns
Translated by: Pumpkin

It was the first time that Qin Yu came to know that the original inhabitants of the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm were actually the people from the Dark Star Realm. The Immortals, Devils and Demons were all people that have ascended from the lower realm and then started to propagate in the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm.
It was likely that even the name ‘Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm, was named by people afterwards.
“To ascend from a lower realm to a higher realm is the natural law of the cosmos. It is something that cannot be changed. Thus, the Three Great Sovereigns of our Dark Star Realm from back then decided to step aside and retreat back to a single place to reside on. After all, our Dark Star Realm’s population was tiny to begin with… it was useless for us to occupy so many territories.” The Guard Elder said slowly.
Qin Yu gasped in his heart.
If the people from the Dark Star Realm had wanted to really kill those that ascended from the lower realm, then with the strength of those seniors of the Immortal Realm, Devil Realm and Demon Realm, that had just ascended, it would simply have been impossible for them to resist. It was likely that there would be a large number of casualties.
“As those people ascended from the lower realm, the cosmic space restrictions on them was much greater too. It was also a lot harder for them to reach Emperor level…. thus, even though their population is hundreds of millions times greater than ours, the number of Emperor level experts they possessed were much fewer than ours.” The Guard Elder face was filled with confidence.
Wen Feng who stood to the side also nodded. He said. “If we were to truly fight each other, then we merely need to execute the ‘gravitational barrier’ and then fight them at close range. Humph… our people from the Dark Star Realm would definitely be able to surpass them and kill them.”
Qin Yu was able to tell that these people from the Dark Star Realm were very arrogant.
However, Qin Yu knew… that although there are more Emperor level experts on the Dark Star Realm, there were still some extremely powerful individuals in the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm. When compared to the Dark Star Realm, they were not much inferior.
In this great hall, other than the four walls possessing numerous cravings, there was also an enormous altar over a hundred meters wide and long in the middle of the great hall.
“This is the Sacred Altar. Whenever the position of Gold Punishment Lord is unoccupied, the Inherited Treasure will be kept in the Sacred Altar.” Said the Guard Elder tranquilly.
Qin Yu asked puzzled. “Could it be,Guard Elder, that you are not afraid of people harboring unfathomable motives coming to plunder the Inherited Treasure?”
Wen Feng who stood to the side started laughing loudly. “Liu Xing, I suspect that you do not know this. This Sacred Altar contains within it the power of the Inherited Treasure. Forcibly seize it? That is simply an impossible matter.”
Qin Yu was unable to refrain from spreading out his Divine Awareness. It covered the entire Sacred Altar.
Sure enough… a very astonishing power was contained within the Sacred Altar. The feeling it gave Qin Yu was very similar to the feeling that the seal on the entrance of the Bewitching God Temple gave Qin Yu.
Even without the Inherited Treasure in the Sacred Altar, it was already giving such a sensation. Once the Inherited Treasure was placed inside, Qin Yu reckoned that its defense would become even more powerful. No wonder Wen Feng said it was impossible to forcibly take it.
“Guard Elder, today I have gained knowledge and experience.” Qin Yu smiled and nodded. “Thus, I shall not bother you anymore. I’ll take my leave first.”
Seeing Qin Yu like this, Wen Feng was a bit confused. However, he also bid his farewell to the Guard Elder.
The Guard Elder nodded.
Qin Yu and Wen Feng left the Inherited Palace.
In Wen Feng’s personal palace.
As one of the eight big shots of the Gold Punishment Sect, his palace also occupied a very wide area. He also possessed many servants. For the time being, Qin Yu had decided to stay here.
“Liu Xing, what exactly are you planning to do, going to the Bewitching God Temple? Is it possible for you to tell me?” Wen Feng asked.
Qin Yu knew that Wen Feng would ask him this question. He had already made up an excuse. With a smile, he said. “Wen Feng, do you know of my true strength?”
“I’m not certain, I think you ought to be a fifteen star Emperor level.” Said Wen Feng uncertainly. Wen Feng’s soul’s level was much inferior to Qin Yu’s. Thus, he was simply unable to see through Qin Yu’s level. Naturally, he was also unable to determine Qin Yu’s level.
“Fifteen star Emperor level?” Qin Yu lightly smiled and shook his head.
Wen Feng’s eyes suddenly shined.
It would appear that this Liu Xing was indeed concealing his strength. Wen Feng felt a bit of admiration toward Liu Xing. However, he was also puzzled. What exactly was the true strength of this Liu Xing who stood before him?
“I am seventeen star Emperor level.” Qin Yu said to Wen Feng with a smile.
“Seventeen star Emperor level!” Even though Wen Feng was prepared, he was still greatly shocked.
Qin Yu continued. “As for the reason why I want to go to the Bewitching God Temple, it’s precisely because of the treasures within it. My current strength is equivalent to that Vice Sect Master Liu Lan. Yet It would still be a bit hard for me to defeat him and become the next Gold Punishment Lord.”
“Haha… Liu Xing, you’re certainly as I had expected.” Wen Feng started laughing. “Liu Xing, I have heard that His Majesty will be undergoing the Divine Tribulation soon. Originally I had thought that… once His Majesty ascends to the Divine Realm, then with Liu Lan’s strength, it would be absolutely certain that he’ll become the next Gold Punishment Lord. However now, it would appear that it is still very hard to tell. I reckon that Liu Lan has no idea that your strength is already at the seventeen star Emperor level.”
Qin Yu nodded.
This was the only explanation Qin Yu could tell others.
“His Majesty will be undergoing the Divine Tribulation soon?” Qin Yu was shocked. He didn’t know about this information.
Wen Feng nodded and smiled. “That’s right. You’ve just arrived on the Sacred Mountain, how would you know about such hidden matter as this? Furthermore, the matter of His Majesty undergoing the Divine Tribulation was not publicized at all. In these recent days, that Liu Lan has already prepared to take on the position of the Gold Punishment Lord the moment His Majesty ascends to the Divine Realm.”
Qin Yu was excited.
He decided that it would be pretty good to compete for the position of the Gold Punishment Lord. At the very least, he would be able to experience the strength of one of the Three Great Inherited Treasures of the Dark Star Realm.
“Liu Lan, if he wants to become the next Gold Punishment Lord, he’ll have to pass through me first.” Qin Yu’s face was filled with confidence.
“Good, Liu Xing, I’ll support you!” Wen Feng patted Qin Yu’s shoulder. He then gasped and said. “Back then, I had wanted to become the Gold Punishment Lord when I reached fifteen star Emperor level. However, His Majesty Xing Yuan appeared. Afterwards, Liu Lan also appeared. His Majesty Xing Yuan was very broad-minded and open, it is one thing for him to become the Gold Punishment Lord. However, someone like Liu Lan…. he’s vicious and arrogant. I do not like him in the slightest.”
A trace of hatred appeared in Wen Feng’s eyes.
“After knowing that His Majesty was about to undergo the Divine Tribulation, that Liu Lan grew even more domineering. From his point of view… with his strength as a seventeen star Emperor level expert, for him to succeed the position of the Gold Punishment Lord was merely as simple as stretching his hand and grabbing it.”
“Liu Xing, you must definitely teach that Liu Lan a lesson.” Wen Feng said to Liu Xing.
“Rest assured. However before that, I shall first go to the Bewitching God Temple. If I were able to obtain a good weapon, then I’ll hold even more certainty in defeating him.” Said Qin Yu while smiling.
A man walked in front outside Wen Feng’s private palace. It was Vice Sect Master Kou Feng. Vice Sect Master Kou Feng still had an amiable smile on his face. He said. “Liu Xing, His Majesty the Black Flame Lord has arrived.”
“His Majesty the Black Flame Lord has arrived?” Qin Yu was overjoyed.
Wen Feng also said. “Liu Xing, make sure to try your best to persuade His Majesty the Black Flame Lord to help you.”
Vice Sect Master Kou Feng said while smiling. “The Three Great Sacred Planets are all core planets in the Three Great Star Fields. Furthermore, they all possess Interstellar Conveying Arrays to each other. After the Black Flame Lord received His Majesty’s transmission, he immediately rushed over. It is said that His Majesty the White Profound Lord had also set off, I reckon he’ll be arriving shortly.”
Qin Yu was overjoyed. He had not expected that the Black Flame Lord and the White Profound Lord would come so fast.
“Vice Sect Master Kou Feng, quickly, bring me over.” Qin Yu’s face was filled with happiness.
“His Majesty the Black Flame Lord is located in the Sect’s main hall and is chatting with His Majesty Xing Yuan right now.” Kou Feng explained to Qin Yu while flying with him and Wen Feng toward the summit where the main palace was located at.
In the great conference hall.
“Haha, Xing Yuan, what I admire the most is your straightforwardness! Haha…” Qin Yu and the other two were still outside when they heard a loud and clear laughter.
Vice Sect Master Kou Feng said in a low voice. “The person speaking is His Majesty Black Flame Lord. Liu Xing, His Majesty the Black Flame Lord is very straightforward. You must make sure to not speak in a roundabout way or do something like containing implied meanings within your words. Those are things His Majesty the Black Flame Lord hates the most.”
“I understand.” Qin Yu thanked Vice Sect Master Kou Feng’s advice in his heart.
When trying to befriend someone, knowing their temperament was very important.
Qin Yu, Wen Feng and Kou Feng walked to the doorstep of the main hall together. They then walked into the main hall.
Qin Yu’s gaze immediately locked onto the man with the most robust body in the main hall. That man possessed a steadfast appearance, extremely bulging muscles and fiery red hair… this was one of the Three Great Sovereigns of the Dark Star Realm, the Black Flame Lord.
“Seventeen star Emperor level strength. However, he possesses a mysterious aura. It ought to be because of that Inherited Treasure.” Qin Yu had made this determination in his heart.
“Liu Xing pays his respects to Your Majesty Black Flame Lord.” Qin Yu slightly bowed and said with a smile.
The Black Flame Lord took a glance at Qin Yu. He then looked to the Gold Profound Lord Xing Yuan in shock. “Xing Yuan, this Consecrated of your Gold Punishment Sect is extraordinary indeed. Even I am unable to determine his soul’s level.”
“Not only you, I too am unable to see through it.” Xing Yuan said while smiling.
“He’s really that exceptional?” A clear and cold voice sounded from behind Qin Yu. Qin Yu turned around to look… what he saw was a handsome man walking over with a maid.
“Ju Mi, if you don’t believe us then you can try checking it yourself.” Joked the Black Profound Lord.
At this moment, Qin Yu took note of the strength of the person that had just arrived.
This man called Ju Mi was also seventeen star Emperor level. As for the maid following behind him, she was fifteen star Emperor level… furthermore, Qin Yu even recognized this maid. It was precisely the woman that he met on the Fifteen Star Emperor Level Dark Star, Han Xue.
“Liu Xing.” Han Xue was a bit surprised to see Qin Yu.
“Little Xue, you know him?” Ju Mi turned around to look at Han Xue.
Han Xue nodded. “Master, this Liu Xing is the person that I have mentioned to master before, he’s that man who trained for three thousand years on the Fifteen Star Emperor Level Dark Star.”
“Fifteen star Emperor level? With such a soul, I suspect that his level is higher than merely fifteen star Emperor.” Said Ju Mi with a light smile.
Gold Punishment Lord Xing Yuan said to Qin Yu. “Liu Xing, this is the White Profound Lord.”
“As I have anticipated.” Qin Yu was already prepared. Immediately, he slightly bowed and said. “Liu Xing pays his respects to Your Majesty White Profound Lord.”
“Liu Xing, right? I’ve heard that Xing Yuan invited Wu Shan and I to come this time precisely for your matter.” The White Profound Lord’s appearance was as clear and cold as when he just walked in. It was as if his emotion have not moved at all.
Qin Yu nodded and said. “Precisely. I wish to enter the Bewitching God Temple. However, it is not yet the unified time to enter the Bewitching God Temple. Thus, I wish for the Three Majesties to help refine a passage title plate for me.”
“This matter is a bit troublesome.” The Black Profound Lord Wu Shan’s blazing black brows jumped. He then started laughing. “Oh Liu Xing, there’s not anything good in the Bewitching God Temple anyways. It shouldn’t matter for you to not go in there.”
Qin Yu merely shook his head. “Your Majesty Black Flame Lord, please help me out.”
At this moment, the Black Flame Lord turned his gaze to the White Profound Lord. The White Profound Lord merely sat and shook his head indifferently without saying a single word.
Immediately, the atmosphere within the great hall turned oppressive.
“Wu Shan, Ju Mi, Liu Xing’s soul’s level is extremely high. I reckon he would ascend to the Divine Realm very fast. Isn’t it merely allowing him to enter the Bewitching God Temple once? That’s not really anything of great concern…. just help him out. Furthermore, it would merely take us a blink of an eye’s time to refine a passage title plate together. Now that we mentioned it, I have yet to refine any passage title plate after becoming the Gold Punishment Lord. Furthermore, I would soon be ascending to the Divine Realm, if I were to not refine a passage title plate now, then I reckon that I’ll never have a chance to refine one again.” Joked Xing Yuan.
However, what Xing Yuan said was the truth.
He had been the Gold Punishment Lord for merely several thousands of years. The Dark Star Realm would usually allow people to enter into the Bewitching God Temple once every hundred thousand years. Only in every hundred thousand years would the Three Great Sovereigns meet and refine a passage title plate together. Xing Yuan would be ascending to the Divine Realm shortly, it was truly possible that he would not have an opportunity to refine a passage title plate again.
“Ju Mi, even Xing Yuan had said something like this, just help us out a little.” Wu Shan muttered to himself for a moment and then said to Ju Mi.
Ju Mi calmly shook his head indifferently. He said. “There seems to be no need for this Liu Xing to enter the Bewitching God Temple. Why must we break the rules? At the very least, there ought to be a reason for us to break the rules. Liu Xing, if you are able to provide a reason that can convince me, then I will be able to agree to help.”
Qin Yu took a look around the grand hall.
There were quite a lot of people in the great hall. Even that Vice Sect Master Liu Lan was present.
“Your Majesty White Profound Lord, Your Majesty Black Flame Lord, is it possible for the two of you to come to a side hall with me?” Said Qin Yu with a smile.
Upon hearing those words, the Gold Punishment Lord Xing Yuan, Vice Sect Master Liu Lan and the rest of the people were surprised. However, Wen Feng was instead smiling. He believed that Qin Yu was about to mention the matter of competing for the position of the Gold Punishment Lord. At this moment, Liu Lan was present. Thus it would be hard for Qin Yu to mention it in the grand hall.
The Black Flame Lord and the White Profound Lord took a glance at each other.
“Fine, I shall see what kind of reason you’ll give to persuade me.” Nodded the White Profound Lord.
Soon after, Qin Yu, Black Flame Lord and the White Profound Lord entered into a side hall. Once they entered into the side hall, the White Profound Lord waved his hand and set up a barrier around them. He then looked to Qin Yu. “Liu Xing, I have already set up a barrier around this side hall, just go ahead and speak without hesitation.”
The Black Flame Lord also looked to Qin Yu.
“Your Majesty Black Flame Lord, Your Majesty White Profound Lord, the two of you have guessed correctly. My soul’s level is high. My strength is also above fifteen star Emperor level. It is actually seventeen star Emperor level.” Qin Yu said.
The Black Flame Lord and the White Profound Lord nodded. The two of them were not shocked in the slightest.
“The two of you ought to know that His Majesty Xing Yuan would be undergoing the Divine Tribulation and ascending to the Divine Realm shortly. When that time comes, that Liu Lan and I would have to contest over the position of the Gold Punishment Lord. Currently, I do not have absolute certainty that I would be able to defeat him. However, my soul’s level is high. I believe that if I were to go to the Bewitching God Temple and explore, I would be able to obtain a pretty good harvest. Thus, I want to obtain a good treasure so that I can defeat him. I wish for the two of you to help me out.” Qin Yu said his reasoning in one breath.
The Black Flame Lord laughed and said. “So that was the case. This could also be considered as a reason. Ju Mi, what do you think?”
The White Profound Look shook his head indifferently. “Competing for the position of the Gold Punishment Lord? It does not matter to us at all who would be the next Gold Punishment Lord. It also does not affect the Dark Star Realm at all. Why then must I help you?”
Qin Yu was stunned.
With his brows creased, Qin Yu took a deep breath. He then stared at the White Profound Lord. “Your Majesty White Profound Lord, then could you help me out once in honor of this?” A ring suddenly appeared on Qin Yu’s finger…. the Blazing Profound Ring!
