MARTIAL PEAK 5047


A short while later, Tang Qiu was sitting in a corner with a swollen face, surrounded by three tall and sturdy figures.


All of them were Eighth Order Regiment Commanders, so if they were to fight one on one, none of them would be able to defeat the other, so how could he possibly be a match for them?


If he hadn’t reacted quickly enough and given up resisting, he would have been beaten to a pulp.


“Speak, what is your purpose in coming to Blue Sky Pass this time?” Zhong Liang looked down from above.


Tang Qiu’s mouth twitched, “Brother Zhong, I really came to find Yang Kai to replenish the Purification Light…”


“Bullshit!” Zhong Liang cut him off without hesitation, “If you really wanted to replenish your Purification Light, sending out a Seventh Order would have been enough, why would you need to do it yourself? Do you have so many resources in your Yin-Yang Pass that you don’t have anywhere to spend them? The cost of teleporting an Eighth Order or Seventh Order is completely different.”


At this point, Zhong Liang’s tone became slightly heavy, “Being able to trouble you to come out personally? Did something big happen at Yin-Yang Pass?”


Ding Yao said, “What does this have to do with Yang Kai? Why would you come to Blue Sky Pass to see him.”


Tang Qiu smiled bitterly, “You won’t believe me even if I tell you…”


“Brother Tang!” Zhong Liang’s expression became solemn, “If you don’t speak the truth, please leave.”


Tang Qiu’s expression fluctuated for a moment, but in the end he still sighed and said, “Fine, since things have come to this, this Tang will tell you the truth. Is there a secluded place?”


Zhong Liang and Ding Yao glanced at each other, vaguely feeling that Tang Qiu’s actions were not trivial, otherwise he would not have been so cautious.


“Follow me,” Zhong Liang said before leading the way.


A short while later, the four of them arrived at a hall.


The main door of the hall was tightly shut and the restrictions were all activated, isolating it from the outside world.


Zhong Liang turned to Tang Qiu and said, “Brother Tang, if there’s anything you need, feel free to speak frankly. Although you and I belong to different war zones, we are still part of the Human Race. If Blue Sky Pass can help, we won’t refuse.”


Tang Qiu sighed deeply, took out a jade slip and flicked it, “Before we get down to business, please take a look at this.”


The force of his flick was just right, and the jade slip suddenly exploded halfway through the air, sending out a burst of light. However, the light did not dissipate, instead constantly transforming into a scene that everyone could see.


This was undoubtedly an extremely brilliant method to seal certain scenes that had happened in the past into a jade slip, allowing one to display them whenever they wished.


It was unknown where in the Ink Battlefield it was located, but it was a void.


Inside the scene, a Human Race Battleship’s Array flashed and as the Array circulated, a series of attacks shot out.


On the other side, another Battleship was also dodging miserably, occasionally counterattacking.


However, this Battleship was different from all the other Human Race Battleships Zhong Liang and the others knew. It was huge and had a rough style. Although the frequency of its attacks wasn’t high, the attacks it launched were extremely powerful.


Near the two Battleships, there was also the Seventh Order Human Race Open Heaven and the Black Ink Clan's Feudal Lord fighting a bloody battle.


Zhong Liang and the others stared fixedly at the larger Battleship. Although the scene in front of them didn’t look detailed enough, they could clearly see the giant figure of the Black Ink Clan on the Battleship.


The more they observed, the more serious their expressions became.


After fighting for a while, the larger Battleship suddenly began to buzz violently, and soon after, numerous Arrays burst into light. This Battleship’s Array was unstable and had collapsed on its own, instantly destroying it. The Battleship that had lost its Arrays was like a tiger that had lost its teeth, no longer able to defend or attack.


The Human Race’s Battleship seized this opportunity to launch a fierce attack, causing the giant Battleship to collapse. On the Battleship, the Black Ink Clan suffered countless casualties.


After dealing with the opponent, the Human Race’s Battleship turned around to assist its Seventh Order's opponent, quickly repelling the Black Ink Clan Feudal Lord.


The changing scene ended here, turning into a fluorescent light and disappearing.


The hall was silent, the atmosphere heavy.


After a long time, Zhong Liang asked, “Is that something the Black Ink Clan created?”


“Yes,” Tang Qiu nodded.


“When did this happen?”


“Three months ago, one of my Yin-Yang Pass’ soldiers was out on a patrol and accidentally stumbled upon it. The Team Leader of that small team realized how important this matter was, so he used some kind of method to seal up the scene. This is what you see now.”


Zhong Liang frowned, “You haven’t noticed it before?”


Tang Qiu shook his head, “I’ve never seen it before, and judging from the performance of that Black Ink Clan Battleship, the performance of the things it produced was not very reliable. Otherwise, it wouldn’t have been destroyed by my Yin-Yang Pass’ Battleship.”


“Although it’s not reliable, it already has this ability,” Zhong Liang let out a long sigh, “In the future, the Black Ink Clan may be able to refine a sufficiently reliable palace artifact. At that time, the advantage of our Human Race’s soldiers will be completely lost.”


The Human Race and the Black Ink Clan had fought for countless years in this Ink Battlefield and each had their own advantages. The Black Ink Clan’s advantage was naturally the Ink Force, which had never failed before. Before Yang Kai brought out the Purification Light, the Ink Force had brought great losses to the Human Race.


The only advantage the Human Race had was the Palace Artifact.


Relying on the protection of the Palace Artifacts, those Fifth Order and Sixth Order Open Heaven could display the power of a High Rank Open Heaven on the battlefield. As long as the Palace Artifact stay intact, the cultivators hiding inside them didn’t need to worry about their lives.


Therefore, in every war between the two races, no matter which mountain pass it was, the losses suffered by the Human Race were much smaller than those of the Black Ink Clan.


Most of the time, when small teams fought, the Human Race would be able to achieve zero casualties, relying on the offensive and defensive power of their Palace Artifact.


The Black Ink Clan had always coveted the Palace Artifact and had always devoted themselves to researching and refining it. However, the lack of talent made it impossible for them to refine it.


After all, not just any Artifact Refiner could refine a Palace Artifact. In all of Blue Sky Pass, there were only a handful of Artifact Refiners who could refine a Palace Artifact, and these people were strictly protected, never allowing them to step onto the battlefield to avoid Ink Transformation.


It was precisely because of this tight security that the method to refine the Palace Artifacts had always been firmly in the hands of the Human Race, leaving the Black Ink Clan helpless.


Yang Kai had brought the Purification Light to the Human Race and the Expelling Black Ink Pill. Originally, with these two things, the advantage the Black Ink Clan had relied on for many years would be greatly reduced, and the future of the Human Race would be bright.


However, the news brought by Tang Qiu made Zhong Liang and the others’ hearts sink. If the Black Ink Clan really managed to obtain a reliable palace artifact, the Human Race’s advantage would be greatly reduced.


Not to mention anything else, the Black Ink Clan’s numbers were massive to begin with. In the past, every time they attacked the Human Race’s Pass, the Low Rank Black Ink Clan and even the High Rank Black Ink Clan would only serve as cannon fodder to consume the strength of the Human Race’s cultivators. After they died, the Ink Force they left behind would transform into a black ink cloud, causing the Human Race’s cultivators to be even more restrained.


However, if they had their own Palace Artifacts, the massive number of Low Rank Black Ink Clan and High Rank Black Ink Clan members would no longer be able to play the role of cannon fodder. Like the Human Race’s Fifth Order and Sixth Order Open Heaven, they would be able to hide inside the Palace Artifacts and rely on them to display combat strength far beyond their own.


Just think about it, when the Black Ink Clan was equipped with enough palace artifacts and their massive army arrived, which human race mountain pass could resist them?


Just thinking about it made him shudder.


“Do you know who is helping them refine these?” Zhong Liang asked solemnly.


Tang Qiu said, “There are more than a dozen possible candidates from Yin-Yang Pass, but we can’t determine who they are.”


The Black Ink Clan’s Artifact Refining ability was quite lacking, this was a well-known fact. The Black Ink Clan’s artifacts were basically refined by the transformed Black Ink Disciples, so the Black Ink Clan Battleship that appeared in this scene could basically be determined to be the work of a Black Ink Disciple.


This Black Ink Disciple, on the other hand, had the ability to barely refine a palace artifact, which meant his attainments in Artifact Refining were not low.


Generally speaking, such a talent would not be allowed to enter the battlefield, but there were always exceptions. Some people were talented in Artifact Refining, but they had no intention of doing so. They only focused on the Martial Dao, so naturally they had to fight.


After being turned into Black Ink Disicple, under the command of the Black Ink Clan, he began studying Artifact Refining. Over the years, his skill in Artifact Refining became more profound, allowing him to refine a palace artifact.


It was precisely because of this consideration that Yin-Yang Pass had come up with more than a dozen possible candidates. These dozen or so people had basically all been transformed into Black Ink Disciples and had shown some talent in Artifact Refining.


If one were to ask who had refined this artifact for the Black Ink Clan, these dozen or so people were the most likely candidates.


“What does Yin-Yang Pass want to do?” Ding Yao asked.


Tang Qiu said, “This matter is of great importance, and it is enough to affect the massive structure of the two races’ battlefield. If we allow the Black Ink Clan to thoroughly research the Palace Artifact, our Human Race may not be able to resist them in the future. So the Old Ancestor’s intention is to find the Artifact Refiner who refined this artifact and bring him back, or… kill him, so as to prevent the situation from worsening. Naturally, the sooner the better.”


Ding Yao nodded slightly. Facing such a situation, this was indeed the only way to resolve it.


Zhong Liang’s expression changed, “So Brother Tang came to Blue Sky Pass to ask Yang Kai to…”


Tang Qiu said, “Yang Kai once lived in the Black Ink Clan’s hinterland for two years, and he also possesses the World Spring, so he doesn’t fear the Ink Force and has the means to purify it, so it’s best for him to come out. There’s no need for him to kill the enemy, as long as he can find out the identity and location of that Artifact Refiner, my Yin-Yang Pass’ Old Ancestor will personally take action.”


Zhong Liang immediately shook his head, “No, it’s too dangerous. If his disguise is seen through by others, he will definitely die.”


Tang Qiu sighed and said, “How could I not know the dangers of entering the tiger’s den? However, there is no better candidate than him for this matter. Everyone should know that Yang Kai is proficient in the Space Law and his ability to escape is second to none. Now that he is a Seventh Order Open Heaven master, even if he is seen through, he may not be able to escape.”


TO BE CONTINUED...



[MSN: Man, I still think these Cave Heaven Paradise is so stupid. How could they not even think about researching the Space or Time Law, because it was hard? If it was easy why would there be a need to study it. They rely on talent from birth too much lol.]
