MARTIAL PEAK 5711


Xiang Shan didn’t say anything more and changed the subject, “Where’s Yang Kai?”


Mi Jinglun said solemnly, “There’s a problem with the Heavenly Beginning Great Restriction…”


Immediately, he explained the information Ouyang Lie had brought back and Yang Kai’s instructions, causing Xiang Shan to frown as he realized the seriousness of the situation.


With an opening in the Heavenly Beginning Great Restriction, it was unknown how many of the Black Ink Clan’s Innate Territory Lords had managed to escape. If they go to the No-Return Pass, the Black Ink Clan’s strength would definitely increase greatly, and once the number of Innate Territory Lords increased, the Black Ink Clan’s decision-making and arrangements would become much more relaxed.


Forget about everything else, just the matter of creating a Pseudo-Royal Lord was something the Human Race had to be wary of!


In the past, the Black Ink Clan had rarely created a Pseudo-Royal Lord because the price they had to pay was not small. Moreover, the birth of a Pseudo-Royal Lord did not affect the overall situation of the two races much.


But now, with even more Innate Territory Lords and the many Royal Lord-level Ink Nest from the Heavenly Beginning Great Restriction, the Black Ink Clan would not be too stingy when it came to creating a Pseudo-Royal Lord.


Coupled with the fact that the Universe Furnace was about to appear, in order to prevent the Human Race’s masters from obtaining this opportunity, the Black Ink Clan would definitely try to stop them.


A great storm was brewing!


The appearance of the Universe Furnace was both an opportunity and a crisis for the current Human Race.


However, such a big matter definitely couldn’t escape Yang Kai’s senses. No matter where he was now, once the entrance to the Universe Furnace was completely formed, he would definitely enter it. At that time, with him and Xiang Shan working together, the situation wouldn’t be too bad.


“Mysterious Nether Army’s Blood Crow seeks an audience with Senior Brother Mi!”


A low shout suddenly came from outside the hall.


Xiang Shan and Mi Jinglun glanced at each other, both somewhat surprised. Xiang Shan had some impression of the name Blood Crow. After all, this fellow’s background was somewhat special, and he had once been a member of Yang Kai’s Dawn Squad. In the Great Evolution Army, Xiang Shan had paid a lot of attention to Yang Kai’s Dawn Squad, so he naturally knew about this Blood Crow.


Mi Jinglun was stunned for a moment before his eyes lit up, “I actually forgot about him!”


Saying so, he stood up and walked out.


A moment later, Mi Jinglun and Blood Crow entered together. One of them had a calm aura while the other was extremely flamboyant, his Blood Qi thick to the point where it was almost impossible to disperse, spreading out to form a red curtain of blood.


Xiang Shan frowned…


This Blood Crow’s cultivation level gave him an extremely strange feeling. It seemed to be a Seventh Order or Eighth Order, but regardless of whether it was a Seventh Order or Eighth Order, when one’s strength reached this level, they should be able to freely control their own strength. However, judging from Blood Crow’s performance, it was obvious that he was unable to do so. His aura was not deliberately flamboyant, but rather because his strength was somewhat out of control.


If he remembered correctly, this fellow’s cultivation technique was called the Great Evolution Inextinguishable Blood Shine Scripture, an evil technique. In the past, when he wreaked havoc in the Shattered Heaven, there were even many Cave Heaven Paradise disciples who died at his hands. Later on, he was captured by Bright King Heaven’s Elder and thrown into the Ink Battlefield.


All kinds of information about Blood Crow flashed across his mind as Xiang Shan labeled him as an evil spirit.


In his heart, he didn’t really like this kind of person. If it weren’t for the fact that the current situation was a struggle between the Human Race and the Black Ink Clan, if he had encountered such a person in a peaceful era, Xiang Shan would definitely act on behalf of the Heavens.


At this moment, Mi Jinglun warmly welcomed Blood Crow in. Seeing Xiang Shan, Blood Crow cupped his fists and greeted, “Greetings, Brother Xiang.”


Xiang Shan didn’t care if he didn't call him Senior Brother, he simply nodded lightly. After all, if he really wanted to count, he really didn’t have the qualifications to be called Senior Brother by Blood Crow.


After inviting Blood Crow to sit down, Mi Jinglun asked, “Why have you come?”


Although he already had a guess, when Blood Crow said thoese words, Mi Jinglun couldn’t help being overjoyed.


Blood Crow said indifferently, “Universe Furnace, I’ve been there before!”



Outside the Heavenly Beginning Great Restriction, on the Withdrawing Black Ink Pavilion, the six thousand Withdrawing Black Ink Army had the absolute upper hand in the thousand-year confrontation with the Black Ink Clan, with only a few casualties. After all, the Black Ink Clan inside the Heavenly Beginning Great Restriction only wanted to divert the attention of the Withdrawing Black Ink Army and distract Wu Kuang, so even though Wu Kuang had taken the initiative to open a gap in the thousand-year war, none of them had managed to escape unscathed.


At this moment, the void was quiet and the gap was still there, but no Black Ink Clan member had rushed out to seek death.


The opening that the Black Ink Clan had opened with great difficulty in the Great Restriction had been exposed and repaired by Wu Kuang, making it impossible for them to sneak out again, so why waste their strength on the Human Race?


Wu Kuang also didn’t close the gap. Since it had been opened, if it is closed again, it was highly likely that it would have some effect on the Great Restriction, so it was better to maintain this state.


As such, the Withdrawing Black Ink Army has nothing to do. Fortunately, they could still cultivate.


Just as Xiang Shan and Mi Jinglun had guessed, when the projection of the Universe Cauldron appeared in various parts of the universe, a projection also appeared outside the Heavenly Beginning Great Restriction.


All the cultivators who had reached the peak of the Eighth Order were startled and couldn’t help feeling a sense of longing as they stared at the projection.


There were also some Eighth Order veteran in the Withdrawing Black Ink Army, so when they saw this projection, how could they not have any guess?


The news that Universe Furnace was about to appear soon spread throughout the entire Withdrawing Black Ink Army, causing many Eighth Order masters to be shocked.


The Withdrawing Black Ink Army had a total of four hundred Eighth Order Open Heavens, but of these four hundred Eighth Order Open Heavens, less than ten percent had the qualifications to break through to the Ninth Order. Even Yu Rumeng, Su Yan, and the others had only been able to break through to the Sixth Order directly back then, so Eighth Order was their limit.


On the other hand, Zhao Yebai, Zhao Ya, and Xu Yi, who had just risen to the top, had received the World Tree’s support and were promoted to the Seventh Order directly, having a chance of becoming a Ninth Order Supreme Master in the future.


As a cultivator, regardless of whether they were male or female, which one of them didn’t want their Great Dao to improve further? They wanted to climb to the peak and see the more exciting scenery.


Therefore, when the news of Universe Furnace’s imminent appearance spread, even the Eighth Order veteran in the Withdrawing Black Ink Army become restless.


However, whether it was the old veteran Eighth Order or the rookie Eighth Order, none of them knew much about the Universe Furnace. All they knew was that the Open Heaven Pill in the Universe Furnace could help a cultivator break through their shackles, but as for what this Open Heaven Pill looked like and how to obtain it, none of them knew.


Fortunately, there was a Divine Dragon here.


In terms of age and seniority, Fu Guang was undoubtedly older than everyone else. He was knowledgeable and experienced, so perhaps he knew something.


As such, Yang Xiao immediately turned his head towards Fu Guang, who was standing at the side, and asked solemnly, “Sir, why does this Universe Furnace look like this?”


Fu Guang smiled lightly, “If it’s not like this, what would it look like?”


Yang Xiao let out a hollow laugh, “I don’t know, it’s a bit different from what I imagined.” He paused for a moment before asking, “Sir, if the Universe Furnace appears on our side, won’t we be the first to enjoy the benefits?”


Fu Guang glanced at him and said, “You’re thinking too much. This is just a projection of the Universe Furnace. Its true form has been hidden from the outside world since ancient times and no one has ever seen it.”


“A projection?” Yang Xiao was stunned. It wasn’t just him, many of the other rookie Eighth Order masters were the same.


One of the Eighth Order veterans said, “It is said that when the Universe Furnace appears, it will reveal its projection to a certain place in the universe. After it fully condenses, it will form an entrance, allowing one to enter the Universe Furnace and search for opportunities.”


Hearing this, Yang Xiao became even more confused, “Entering the Universe Furnace to search for opportunities? Is there a Small World inside the Universe Furnace?”


The Eighth Order veteran shook his head and said, “I don’t know the specifics, I only heard a few words from my elders.”


Another person added, “Moreover, there should be more than one projection. The appearance of this projection is related to the number of dead creatures and the strength of their strength. There are too many dead creatures here, so it’s not strange for a projection to appear here.”


“There will be a projections elsewhere?” Someone asked curiously.


“It should be. Right now, in all the Great Domain Battlefields, there are many living beings who have died, so there should also be projections there.”


“Doesn’t that mean we’re not the only ones who can enter the Universe Furnace?”


“Naturally. As long as a projection appears and transforms into an entrance, it can connect to the core of the Universe Furnace.”


A group of veteran Eighth Order masters began sharing their information one by one. Yang Xiao, who was listening from the side, suddenly whispered to Yang Xue, “It’s not quite what I expected.”


Yang Xue nodded, “It’s not what I expected either.”


They had always heard that there was a Open Heaven Pill inside the Universe Furnace that could help one break through their shackles. They had thought that since the Universe Furnace had appeared in front of them, all they needed to do was wait quietly. When the time came, the miraculous Open Heaven Pill would fly out and they would take action to seize it.


But now they knew that what had appeared in front of them was only a projection, and even if the time was right, there wouldn’t be any Open Heaven Pills flying out. Instead, people would have to enter to search for opportunities.


The two of them muttered to each other for a while before Yang Xiao turned to Fu Guang and asked, “Sir, do you know much about the Universe Furnace?”


The Eighth Order masters also stopped talking and looked towards Fu Guang, all of them showing looks of anticipation, obviously wanting to obtain some information from him.


Fu Guang slowly shook his head, “Every time the Universe Furnace appears, the Holy Spirit won’t participate, so what I know is only hearsay. However… the inside of the Universe Furnace is a Small World of its own. Entering it will allow one to search for opportunities, and if one can obtain the legendary Open Heaven Pill, it won’t be difficult to break through the shackles.”


These words caused all the Eighth Order masters’ expressions to become fiery, and Yang Xiao wanted nothing more than to rush in right now. He was a member of the Dragon Clan, so he didn’t need any Open Heaven Pills, but his Foster Father did. His Foster Father was so strong, so he shouldn’t be stuck at the Eighth Order Open Heaven and unable to advance any further. That’s right, his Foster Father is definitely going in this time to search for opportunities. He is no longer the little white dragon who could only take shelter under his Foster Father's wings back then, so he naturally had to help his Foster Father!


Seeing his restlessness, Zhao Yebai pulled him back and said, “Senior Brother, don’t act rashly. The projection over there looks ordinary, but it’s actually a distortion of space. It’s unknown how many folds there are, if you rashly try to break in, you’ll definitely be trapped inside.”
