“So long as the young geniuses of your respective Dynasties become eminent in the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties later, you’ll be able to obtain various other generous rewards.” Ning Can continued.
Ning Can’s words caused the gazes of all the representatives of the ten Dynasties to glow, and most of the young geniuses even rubbed their fists together and were prepared to show their capability and make a great display in the martial competition.
“Now, all the young geniuses from the ten Dynasties that have obtained the qualifications to participate in the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties, please come out and stand together with the young geniuses from your own Dynasty,” said Ning Can.
Instantly, the young geniuses present soared up into the sky, whereas Duan Ling Tian’s group was the same as well, and they flashed up into the sky before converging with Zi Shang, Bai Hao, and the other young geniuses of the Darkhan Dynasty.
“Duan Ling Tian, I’ll sooner or later trample on you beneath my feet and make you kowtow while begging for mercy before me!” A familiar and gloomy voice sounded out by Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
“Is that so?” In the first possible moment, Duan Ling Tian discerned the owner of this voice transmission.
His gaze instantly descended onto his old rival, Zi Shang, and he replied with a disdainful tone. “According to my knowledge, you seem to have said these words more than once, right?”
“You!?” Zi Shang’s face went grim as he glared angrily at Duan Ling Tian, and the Origin Energy on his body roiled as if it would whistle out at any moment.
In the end, Zi Shang took a deep breath and suppressed the flames of rage in his heart, and he didn’t flare up in the end.
Not to mention he didn’t have much confidence in going against Duan Ling Tian, even if Duan Ling Tian was far from being a match for him, he wouldn’t dare act rashly at this moment.
What a joke!
This was Skywolf Fort, and it wasn’t a place that he could act wantonly.
After Duan Ling Tian retorted to Zi Shang and caused Zi Shang to be angry out of embarrassment, he paid no further attention to Zi Shang and instead looked towards the young geniuses from the other nine Dynasties that had gathered together.
These young geniuses were gathered into nine groups now, and they represented the other nine Dynasties.
“Those are the members of Darming Dynasty.” Duan Ling Tian’s gaze descended onto the 10 young geniuses nearby at the first possible moment.
In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian’s gaze locked onto one of them.
It was precisely because of this person that he was able to recognize that these ten young geniuses were from the Darming Dynasty at the first possible moment.
Zhao Wei Yi.
One of the two most outstanding young experts in the Darming Dynasty, and he was as equally famous as the Darming Dynasty’s Crown Prince.
When Duan Ling Tian looked at Zhao Wei Yi, Zhao Wei Yi just happened to be looking at him as well.
But when Duan Ling Tian’s gaze swept over, Zhao Wei Yi had avoided his gaze instead, and it seemed as if Zhao Wei Yi didn’t dare meet his gaze.
Perhaps battling Duan Ling Tian the other time had already caused a great psychological effect on him.
Besides that, Duan Ling Tian also saw the Darming Dynasty’s Imperial Family’s Third Prince, Lu Hao, and those few young geniuses that had attacked him that day.
Presently, all of them had extremely unsightly expressions when they looked at him.
“That person ought to be the Darming Dynasty’s Crown Prince, Lu Yong.” The young man that stood before the Third Prince Lu Hao attracted Duan Ling Tian’s gaze.
The young man had an imposing bearing, and every single move of his emitted the aura of one in high position at every possible moment.
It was precisely because of this that Duan Ling Tian extremely easily guessed this person’s identity.
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian’s gaze flashed past the young geniuses of the other Dynasties before quickly locking onto two people.
These people were precisely the people that were in conflict with him and Zhang Shou Yong at the restaurant nearby Skywolf Fort a few days ago, and they seemed to be from the Darchu Dynasty.
“These people ought to be members of the Darchu Dynasty.” Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
In next to no time, all the young geniuses of the ten Dynasties took their places, and the gazes of everyone descended onto Ning Can in unison.
Right at this moment.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
Ten figures flashed out from Skywolf Fort’s inner fort, and they arrived in the sky above the combat arena to stand by Ning Chan and Feng Wei’s side in the blink of an eye.
These were 10 old men that wore green colored uniform.
“The skywolf badges on their chests have a skywolf with silver eyes… They’re elders of Skywolf Fort!” Many people present guessed the identities of the old men via the skywolf badges on the old men’s chests.
Only Core Disciples and elders of Skywolf Fort had the qualifications to wear skywolf badges with silver eyes.
Moreover, all of these old men seemed dignified and extraordinary, and they were obviously elders of Skywolf Fort.
“Next, the ten of them will respectively go to the young geniuses of one Dynasty… At that time, they’ll take out an Age Measuring Pearl, and all of you have to place your hands on it.” Ning Can looked around at the 100 young geniuses from the ten Dynasties. “I presume that all of you know beforehand that our Skywolf Fort only allows young geniuses below the age of 40 to participate in the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties.”
Ning Can’s words weren’t surprising to many people.
Because this restriction had long since been spread out to the Kingdoms that were at the lowest level of the Dynasties, and the young geniuses present were naturally extremely clear about it.
“Hmm?” Right at this moment, Duan Ling Tian noticed that some young geniuses of a few Dynasties went pale, and they seemed to be slightly uneasy.
“Could it be that they’ve concealed their true age?” Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but be stunned when he saw this scene.
Right at this moment, each of the ten elders of Skywolf Fort flashed out to the young geniuses of one of the ten Dynasties.
One of them had arrived before Duan Ling Tian and the other young geniuses of Darkhan Dynasty.
A milky white pearl appeared out of thin air in his hand, and this pearl’s surface emitted a faint white light, causing one to know it was extraordinary with a single look.
“Age Measuring Pearl!” With a single glance, Duan Ling Tian recognized this milky white colored pearl, and it was precisely the Age Measuring Pearl that measured one’s age.
Of course, this Age Measuring Pearl wasn’t almighty, and it could only measure the age of people below the age of 70.
So long as someone below the age of 70 place their hand on it, it would be able to provide a different reaction.
When a one year old child placed his hand on it, a crimson red ribbon would appear on it.
A two year old child would cause two crimson red ribbons to appear.
So on and so forth.
A ten year old would cause 10 crimson red ribbons to appear.
Once a 11 year old youth placed his hand on it, it wouldn’t produce 11 crimson red ribbons, but an orange colored ribbon.
Crimson, orange, yellow, green, azure, blue, violet. The ribbons of every single color would at most appear in the number of 10.
A 20 year old would cause 10 orange ribbons to appear.
A 21 year old would cause a yellow ribbon to appear.
A 30 year old would cause 10 yellow ribbons to appear.
A 31 year old would cause a green ribbon to appear.
A 40 year old would cause 10 green ribbons to appear.
So on and so forth until the age of 70, 10 violet colored ribbons would be produced.
Once one above the age of 70 placed their hand on the Age Measuring Pearl, and anomaly would appear in the Age Measuring Pearl and cause it to be unable to measure age as normal.
In next to no time, the young geniuses of the Darkhan Dynasty, including Duan Ling Tian, placed their hands successively onto the Age Measuring Pearl.
The ribbons that appeared out of thin air on the Age Measuring Pearl caused their eyes to be unable to help but light up.
Most people had ages above 35.
In next to no time, it was Su Li’s turn.
Su Li placed his hand onto the pearl and 10 yellow ribbons instantly appeared on the Age Measuring Pearl, and it measured Su Li’s age at 30 years old.
“Su Li’s only 30 years old?” Instantly, the group of young geniuses from Darkhan Dynasty that didn’t know Su Li’s true age couldn’t help but be moved.
In other words, during the Dynasty Martial Competition that was held one year ago, Su Li was only 29? And younger than 30?
“As expected of Sword 13’s disciple.” This scene was noticed by the Skywolf Fort’s Vice Fort Master, Ning Can, causing his eyes to light up, and he couldn’t help but praise.
Even though Ning Can’s voice wasn’t loud, yet it still entered into the ears of everyone present.
Instantly, the young geniuses and representatives of the other nine Dynasties shot their gazes onto the Age Measuring Pearl that Su Li had placed his hand on.
All of them were shocked when they saw the 10 yellow colored ribbons on it, “He… He’s only 30 years old?”
“As expected of the closed door disciple taken by the expert from the power of the Foreign Lands, Blade Sect. Such natural talent is shocking.”
“To think I thought it was only because of his good luck earlier… Now it would seem like there was a reason why that expert of the Blade Sect took him as his disciple.”
The young geniuses of the various Dynasties sighed with emotion.
“You’re 40 years old already?” Suddenly, a gloomy voice sounded out, causing the gazes of everyone present to move from Su Li in unison and descend towards the distance.
“It’s from the Darchu Dynasty’s group!” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes flashed as he concentrated his attention and looked towards the source of the voice.
Presently, there was a problem amongst the young geniuses of the Darchu Dynasty… Precisely speaking, it was a great problem!
There was a young man that looked to be almost middle aged with his hand on the Age Measuring Pearl and 10 green ribbons had appeared on the Age Measuring Pearl.
10 green ribbons represented that the person who placed his hand on the Age Measuring Pearl was already 40 years old.
“40 years old?” The expression of the two Vice Fort Masters of Skywolf Fort sank instantly when they saw this scene.
In the next moment, strands of gloomy aura swept out with them as the center, and it caused the representatives and young geniuses of the various Dynasties to feel a chill run down their spines.
Under the gazes of everyone present, the Vice Fort Master of Skywolf Fort, Feng Wei, vanished into thin air, and when appeared once more, he’d already arrived before the young man that was measured to be 40 already.
“You’re 40 years old?” Feng Wei stared at the young man as a gloomy aura swept out from his body, and then it enveloped the young man, causing the young man’s face to go pale as his body shivered.
At this moment, he felt as if it wasn’t a person that was standing before him, but it was instead a bloodthirsty skywolf that would open its bloody mouth and swallow him up at any moment.
“Yes, yes… Vice Fort Master, I just turned 40 two days ago, and it ought to not be a problem, right?” The young man’s voice started trembling as he asked with an extremely perturbed tone.
Duan Ling Tian’s brows raised as he looked at this scene.
This young man from Darchu Dynasty was one of the few people that instantly went pale when Vice Fort Master Ning Can spoke of the Age Measuring Pearl earlier.
He’d already turned 40, and it also meant that he didn’t conform to the requirements of Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties held by Skywolf Fort this time.
“He’s probably going to be struck with misfortune.” At the instant that this young man finished speaking, Duan Ling Tian acutely sensed the killing intent emitted from Feng Wei, and it was an extremely icy cold killing intent.
