MARTIAL PEAK 5179


Hearing this, Shentu Mo replied, “Yes, and no…”


Yang Kai listened blankly.


Shentu Mo pondered for a moment, seemingly considering how to explain this matter to Yang Kai. After all, it was quite difficult to explain it clearly.


After a long time, he finally spoke, “You’ve been here in the Ink Battlefield for two or three hundred years. Although it hasn’t been a long time, there are many soldiers here who have fought with the Black Ink Clan for thousands of years. You’ve even been to places no Eighth Order cultivator has ever set foot in. Have you ever wondered why the entire Ink Battlefield is so vast?”


Yang Kai said, “Why would I even think about such a thing? And what kind of answer could I possibly have?”


However, Shentu Mo’s words made Yang Kai quite concerned. That’s right, why was the Ink Battlefield so vast? Of the 3000 Worlds, any Great Domain could be said to be vast and boundless, but compared to the Ink Battlefield, it was incomparable.


The size of the Ink Battlefield had already surpassed the vastness of a Great Domain, seemingly limitless.


“Does Regiment Commander mean…” Yang Kai looked at him hesitantly.


Shentu Mo sighed and said, “According to some scattered historical records, in the early days of the world, the Ink Battlefield also had many different Great Domains. Each Great Domain was filled with flowers, and there was a barrier between the Great Domains, connected by Domain Gates. The situation was the same as the current 3000 Worlds. However, the birth of the Black Ink Clan changed this situation. The Black Ink Clan was born from an unknown place, and their innate corrosive nature and special methods of reproduction allowed them to easily become the masters of each Great Domain.”


“Every time the Black Ink Clan completely dominates a Great Domain, this Great Domain will begin to decay, the Great Domain Barrier will collapse, and the neighboring Great Domains will begin to fuse together, gradually increasing in size, like a rolling snowball, becoming larger. This is why the Ink Battlefield is so vast.”


Yang Kai frowned and said, “In other words, the current Ink Battlefield is formed from countless different Great Domains?”


“Yes.” Shentu Mo nodded.


This was the first time he had heard such a saying, so it was quite novel.


Yang Kai asked, “Sir, why is it that after the Black Ink Clan completely dominates a Great Domain, the Domain Barrier will collapse? How should we determine if the Black Ink Clan completely dominates a Great Domain?”


Shentu Mo shook his head and said, “I don’t know about that either. All I know is that I read about it from a very ancient historical record. The things recorded on it aren’t comprehensive, and no one can verify its authenticity, but this can explain why the Ink Battlefield is so vast.”


“Then where did the Black Ink Clan come from? Typically, the Black Ink Clan was born from the Black Ink Nest. The Black Ink Nest is divided into different grades, and the next grade Black Ink Nest is the previous grade Black Ink Nest's Child Nest. If we look back, whose Child Nest is the Royal Lord-level Black Ink Nest?”


This matter had puzzled Yang Kai for a long time, but he had never been able to obtain an answer. After learning about the secrets of the Black Ink Nest, he had always guessed that the Black Ink Nest should have a source.


Seizing this opportunity, Yang Kai quickly asked Shentu Mo for an answer.


However, Shentu Mo shook his head and said, “I don’t know. Before you discovered the secrets of the Black Ink Nest, we humans didn’t even know the relationship between the Black Ink Nest.”


Yang Kai couldn’t help feeling somewhat disappointed, but after thinking about it for a moment, he suddenly asked, “Why did Senior suddenly mention this to me?”


Previously, he had been asking about his conjecture about the transfer of troops in the pass, but now the topic had suddenly changed.


Shentu Mo said, “The reason I’m telling you this is because there will be a plan in the next stage. This plan will not only affect Blue Sky Pass, but also all the other human passes.”


Hearing this, Yang Kai’s eyes lit up, “The expedition is about to begin?”


Ding Yao, who had been silent all this time, said, “It has something to do with this matter, but if you want to go on an expedition, it must be achieved! Just listen quietly, there’s no need to ask.”


Yang Kai obediently shut his mouth.


Shentu Mo continued, “In ancient times, the Black Ink Clan ran rampant and many Great Domains fell into enemy hands, allowing the Human Race’s Great Expert to unite against the enemy and establish a hundred and eight mountain passes in the Ink Battlefield to resist the Black Ink Clan. This action has brought good fortune to the future generations. If it weren’t for these one hundred and eight mountain passes, the current 3000 Worlds would have long since become the territory of the Black Ink Clan, and there would have been no one left.”


“The one hundred and eight mountain passes, although each of them is fighting on their own, are actually closely linked together, forming a solid defensive line.”


As he spoke, he suddenly stretched out his hand and drew in the air in front of him, condensing the pure World Force into a physical substance that transformed into a spiritual light.


Under his control, the light was divided into two distinct colors, one white and the other black. He pointed to the white region and said, “This is the 3000 Worlds.”


He then pointed towards the black region, “This is the Ink Battlefield.”


Reaching out his hand, he pointed at a certain spot in the middle of the two colored boundary and a golden light appeared, “This is the No-Return Pass guarded by the Dragon and Phoenix Clans since ancient times, and it is also the only connection between the 3000 Worlds and the Ink Battlefield. The disciples of the various Cave Heaven Paradise are allocated to various mountain passes, and their resources are allocated from the No-Return Pass. It can be said that the No-Return Pass is the final barrier between the 3000 Worlds!”


With a thought, more than a hundred golden lights appeared in the black region, “This is the Human Race’s hundred or so mountain passes.”


Yang Kai looked over and found that the hundred or so golden lights were arranged in a semicircle around the Ink Battlefield.


This was the first time Yang Kai had seen the distribution of more than a hundred human mountain passes in the Ink Battlefield, so he couldn’t help asking in surprise, “Are these mountain passes the distribution of real terrain?”


Shentu Mo nodded and said, “That’s right. This distribution can ensure that every mountain pass corresponds to a war zone. As long as you guard your own war zone, the Black Ink Clan will never be able to set foot in the 3000 Worlds.”


Yang Kai’s heart trembled, “The ancient Great Expert is truly powerful.”


At this moment, Ding Yao walked over with his hands behind his back and said, “Relying on this line of defense, the Human Race has resisted the Black Ink Clan for countless years. Although they sacrificed countless elites, they managed to preserve the safety of the 3000 Worlds. However, this situation changed more than thirty thousand years ago.”


Saying so, he stretched out his hand and pointed forward. Under Yang Kai’s attention, one of the hundred or so golden lights suddenly turned black.


Yang Kai’s heart jumped as he faintly realized what had happened thirty thousand years ago.


Sure enough, Ding Yao said, “More than thirty thousand years ago, the Great Evolution Paradise which was responsible for guarding the Great Evolution Pass was broken. Under the leadership of Great Evolution Old Ancestor, the tens of thousands of Great Evolution Pass’ soldiers fought a bloody battle against the Black Ink Clan for several years and nearly all of them were wiped out. Great Evolution Old Ancestor even died in battle, and after that, Great Evolution Pass fell into the hands of the Black Ink Clan.”


Although he had some guesses, when he heard Ding Yao mention this matter, Yang Kai’s heart still sank. In one of the mountain passes, tens of thousands of soldiers had been nearly wiped out in that battle, and even the Old Ancestor who had been stationed there had died. The blow to the Human Race had been too great. It wasn’t just the failure of a mountain pass, but the destruction of a Paradise!


Since ancient times, this was the first and only time that the Human Race’s Pass had fallen.


It was also because of that battle that Great Evolution Paradise had fallen.


This was a disgrace to the Human Race, although Yang Kai had been in the Ink Battlefield for two or three hundred years, he had never heard anyone mention this matter. Most of the people who knew about this matter were Eighth Order Open Heaven, no one below the Eighth Order knew about it. When he first heard this news, it was from the Black Ink Clan’s Black Abyss Territory Lord.


He didn’t know what had happened thirty thousand years ago to cause Great Evolution Pass to fall completely, but in just a few years, tens of thousands of soldiers had been completely wiped out, and even a Ninth Order Old Ancestor had died in battle. There was obviously something wrong.


“The cultivation of a Ninth Order Old Ancestor is about the same as that of the Black Ink Clan’s Royal Lord, perhaps even stronger. With an Old Ancestor holding down the fort, how could the Black Ink Clan succeed so easily? Why did Great Evolution Pass fall so quickly?” Yang Kai asked in confusion.


Ding Yao said, “Old Ancestor’s strength is indeed about the same as the Royal Lord’s, but what if it’s one against two?”


Yang Kai was surprised, “In that battle, the Black Ink Clan sent out two Royal Lords?”


Ding Yao nodded and said, “This is also the news we received later. The birth of the Human Race’s Old Ancestor was not easy, and so was the Black Ink Clan’s Royal Lord. This kind of highest level combat power might not appear even once in ten thousand years. In the Great Evolution War Zone, there was originally only one Black Ink Clan Royal Lord, and after fighting with the Great Evolution Old Ancestor for countless years, both of them knew each other’s strengths. However, there was suddenly a Black Ink Clan’s Territory Lord who became a Royal Lord. The Black Ink Clan had hidden this matter extremely well, so the Great Evolution Old Ancestor was unaware of it. When he was fighting with the first Royal Lord's main force, he was ambushed by the second Royal Lord and was instantly injured. After that, he fought one against two, so how could he possibly be their opponent?”


Shentu Mo continued, “However, although Great Evolution Old Ancestor died, he also killed one of the Royal Lords, so he died a worthy death.”


One against two, even in a situation where he could have been seriously injured by a sneak attack, he had even managed to drag a Royal Lord down with him. The Great Evolution Old Ancestor was truly worthy of being a Ninth Order.


“Although you’re only a Seventh Order, you’ve participated in many top-secret matters, so you should know that the Human Race is preparing for the expedition.”


Yang Kai nodded, “Disciple understands.”


Ding Yao stretched out his hand and pointed at the black dot representing the Great Evolution Pass, “If we want to go on an expedition, we must take down Great Evolution Pass! If we don’t take down Great Evolution Pass, there will be a loophole in the expedition. The nearest personnel to the pass will be mobilized to prepare for this. Not only is Blue Sky Pass like this, but the other passes will also be mobilized.”


Yang Kai suddenly understood.


At the same time, he finally understood why Troublesome Grandmaster had been so excited. He was a remnant of Great Evolution Paradise, and now that the Human Race wanted to take back Great Evolution Pass, he naturally wanted to follow them into battle. This was a place where the ancestors of Great Evolution Paradise had fought a bloody battle, a place where the ancestors of Great Evolution Pass had buried their bones. From Troublesome Grandmaster’s perspective, no matter what, he wanted to personally seize this mountain pass from the Black Ink Clan and avenge his ancestors.


Shentu Mo and Ding Yao had all kinds of considerations and didn’t want him to go with the army, so the Troublesome Grandmaster would naturally be anxious. If it was anyone else, they probably wouldn’t agree.


Yang Kai even thought about how, more than two hundred years ago, Troublesome Grandmaster had been summoned to the Ink Battlefield. Perhaps at that time, the Human Race had intended to take back Great Evolution Pass, otherwise there would have been no reason to send Troublesome Grandmaster, a Great Evolution survivor, to this place.
