Chapter 594: Capital of the Dynasty
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
“Now, I’ve already broken through to the ninth level of the Void Prying Stage, and I’m only a step away from the Void Initiation Stage… I ought to contact the owners of the other eight jade sword.” Suddenly, Duan Ling Tian had withdrew a glittering and translucent jade sword.
This jade sword was exactly the key left behind by the Young Sect Leader of the Boundless Sect that day that opened the Sword Monarch’s Treasure.
Just by hearing its name, the Sword Monarch’s Treasure, one would be able to know that it was a treasure left behind by a formidable Martial Monarch.
Moreover, this was a sword cultivating Martial Monarch.
Without any hesitation, the Origin Energy on Duan Ling Tian’s hand pulsated like three years ago, and he activated the Voice Transmission Inscription in the jade sword.
Right at this moment, Duan Ling Tian heard an aged voice. “After three years, you’ve finally appeared once again… I heard that fellow from the Darkstone Empire mention you three years ago.”
“You are… Another owner of a jade sword?” Duan Ling Tian asked.
“Yes.” The aged voice passed through the Void Transmission Inscription to enter into Duan Ling Tian’s ears, and it was exceedingly clear.
“Where are you from?” Duan Ling Tian asked curiously.
“I’m from Phoenix Cry Empire.” The aged voice answered indifferently.
“Phoenix Cry Empire?” Duan Ling Tian was stunned.
“It isn’t surprising that you haven’t heard it before… The Phoenix Cry Empire is extremely far from Darkstone Empire, and it doesn’t belong to the Darkhan Dynasty.” The aged voice continued. “I heard from that fellow the last time that you wanted to wait for your strength to be sufficient before opening the Sword Monarch’s Treasure with all of us?”
“You’ve taken the initiative to contact us this time, are you already prepared?” The aged voice became slightly excited as it finished speaking.
Just think about it, the key to open the Sword Monarch’s Treasure had been accumulating dust in his possession for many years, and not that it could be of use to open a great fortune, it was undoubtedly a thing that caused one to be excited.
Not to mention the various Dynasties including the Darkhan Dynasty, even if it was in the entire Foreign Lands, the Sword Monarch’s Treasure was something that would cause the eyes of countless martial artists to go red with greed.
Of course, if one doesn’t possess a jade sword, that one would probably never be able to locate the Sword Monarch’s Treasure.
Moreover, even if one possessed a jade sword, if all nine weren’t gathered together, it would similarly be of no use.
Only after the nine jade swords were gathered would one be able to head towards the Sword Monarch’s Treasure under the guidance of the jade sword and open the Sword Monarch’s Treasure.
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian replied.
“Very good.” The owner of the aged voice spoke excitedly. “How about this, you and I will arrange a time and location… I’ll be in charge to contact the other seven people. At that time, we’ll all gather at the agreed upon location. How about it?”
“Alright.” Duan Ling Tian readily agreed. “When and where do you think would be more suitable to gather?”
The owner of the aged voice said, “I roughly know their locations… How about this, three months from now, we’ll gather at Pheasant Ridge which is north of the Imperial City of Eastern Mulberry Empire. How about it?”
“Eastern Mulberry Empire? Alright.” Duan Ling Tian agreed. “It’s a deal. We’ll not leave before seeing each other three months from now.”
Duan Ling Tian had heard of the Eastern Mulberry Empire, it was an Empire that neighbored the Darkstone Empire, and it was on the eastern side of Darkstone Empire. After one passed the eastern border of Darkstone Empire, one would be in the Eastern Mulberry Empire.
“We’ll not leave before seeing each other.” The aged voice spoke out as well.
Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian withdrew the Origin Energy that had fused into the Voice Transmission Inscription, and he severed the connection with the other person.
With a command in his heart, he was just about to put away the jade sword in his hand.
A swift and strong wind assaulted him, and in the next moment, the jade sword in Duan Ling Tian’s hand was seized away.
Duan Ling Tian’s face went grim, but when he saw clearly that the person who seized his jade sword was Han Xue Nai, he heaved a sigh of relief.
Han Xue Nai blinked her cheeky eyes as she looked at the jade sword in her hand before looking at Duan Ling Tian, and then speaking with deep meaning. “Eh… Big Brother Ling Tian, this jade sword of yours seems to be extraordinary.”
“There’s nothing extraordinary about it, it’s just a little toy.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head lightly and smiled before stretching out his hand, intending to take back the jade sword from Han Xue Nai.
Unexpectedly, Han Xue Nai had dodged, causing Duan Ling Tian to grab at the air. “Big Brother Ling Tian, you’re lying… Would a little toy have an Inscription on it? Moreover, it’s a Voice Transmission Inscription.” When she spoke up to here, Han Xue Nai looked at Duan Ling Tian with a gaze that was filled with cunning.
“Xue Nai… You, you’re able to discern that there’s a Voice Transmission Inscription on it?” Duan Ling Tian was stunned, as it was slightly unexpected to him.
For a time, Han Xue Nai had become even more mysterious in his eyes.
“Hehe… I’ve seen this type of inscription before.” Han Xue Nai smiled.
Duan Ling Tian came to an understanding.
If Han Xue Nai really was a member of the Ancient Han Clan, then it wasn’t strange that she recognized the Voice Transmission Inscription on the jade sword.
The Han Clan didn’t lack Inscription Masters, nor did it lack Voice Transmission Inscriptions.
Han Xue Nai’s pair of cheeky eyes ceaselessly spun about, then she looked at Duan Ling Tian with a spurious smile that showed she wouldn’t return this jade sword to Duan Ling Tian until he told her about it.
“Xue Nai…” Duan Ling Tian laughed bitterly, and then he sent a voice transmission to tell the entire origins of the jade sword to Han Xue Nai.
“Sword Monarch’s Treasure?” After Han Xue Nai found out about the origins of the jade sword, her cheeky eyes flickered with a bright light, and she was obviously interested in this Sword Monarch’s Treasure.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, you’re too bad… You wouldn’t have been intending to leave me, Little Black, and Little White while you go alone to such a fun place, right?” After she returned the jade sword to Duan Ling Tian, Han Xue Nai spoke with slight displeasure.
The corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth twitched, and then he laughed embarrassedly yet didn’t admit to it.
Even though he did indeed have thoughts like this.
“Big Brother Ling Tian, I’m going with you.” Han Xue Nai’s tone was resolute and decisive, and there was no room for discussion.
“If you want to come, then come.” Duan Ling Tian didn’t refuse.
As far as he was concerned, Han Xue Nai was an existence at the Void Interpretation Stage or above, and even in the entire Darkhan Dynasty, she was an expert at the top…
If she was present, then perhaps his trip to the Sword Monarch’s Treasure would be much more relaxed.
Needless to say, as a ninth level Void Initiation Stage demon beast, the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger’s speed was extremely swift.
It only spent a month to cross over from the Darkstone Empire’s Imperial City to the Capital of Darkhan Dynasty and arrive in the sky above their destination.
The Three-Eyed Flame Tiger stood in mid air without moving an inch, and it seemed like an enormous mountain floating high above in the sky.
On this enormous mountain, a group of people had stood in a row as they looked down at the vast ground beneath them.
“This is the Darkhan Dynasty’s Capital?” A young genius couldn’t help but exclaim in a low voice.
Presently, a city that occupied an area so vast it was a few times the total area of the Darkstone Empire’s Imperial City had appeared before the eyes of Duan Ling Tian’s group.
“As expected of the Darkhan Dynasty’s Capital, it’s absolutely the largest city I’ve seen in my entire lifetime.” Zhong Nan sighed with emotion.
“Yeah, before the Capital of the Darkhan Dynasty, I feel myself to be like a frog inside a well.” Gao Yu Hai lightly fanned the fan in his hand, and he had a complicated gaze.
“All of you will only know what being a frog inside a well really means once all of you meet the young geniuses of the Darkhan Dynasty!” King Yong spoke indifferently. “According to my knowledge, there are many who possess strength that are on par with Mo Xuan in the Darkhan Dynasty… Although it’s said that all of you have come here to compete for the qualifications to participate in the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties, I’m only confident towards Mo Xuan.”
“Of course, it isn’t that I’m looking down on your natural talents… Amongst all of you, Duan Ling Tian and Su Li are both on par with Mo Xuan in terms of natural talent. But unfortunately, they’re too young! If they were given another few years of time, then it wasn’t impossible for them to catch up to Mo Xuan.” When he spoke up to here, King Yong looked at Duan Ling Tian and Su Li, and he seemed more like he was consoling them.
For a time, the gazes of most of the people present couldn’t help but descend onto Duan Ling Tian and Su Li.
King Yong’s words were to the point, and most of them agreed to it.
Of course, there were also people that didn’t, and that was Long Yun!
At this moment, Long Yun had an unconvinced expression, and it was as if he was not convinced because King Yong didn’t mention him.
Duan Ling Tian and Su Li couldn’t help but look at each other when they heard King Yong.
“Duan Ling Tian, looks like King Yong doesn’t look favorably upon us,” said Su Li to Duan Ling Tian via voice transmission.
“Then we’ll let our actions prove that his eyes are mistaken.” Duan Ling Tian shrugged and replied with an indifferent expression.
“I have the exact same intention!” Su Li’s face was filled with confidence.
“Let’s go over there!” In next to no time, King Yong spoke, and he urged the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger to head towards the continuous mountain range west of the Capital.
The end of the continuous mountain range couldn’t be seen.
After King Yong found a gorge as the place for the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger to rest, he instructed. “From today onwards, you will stay here… Once the Dynasty Martial Competition ends, I’ll bring along the people who have been eliminated to come meet you before returning to the Darkstone Empire.”
“Aowu~” The Three-Eyed Flame Tiger’s body that was enormous like a mountain lay within the gorge as it nodded to King Yong.
At the same time, it didn’t forget to glance at the yellow clothed young girl that stood nearby, and terror that came from the soul was contained deep within his eyes.
“Let’s go!” After he made arrangements for the Three-Eyed Flame Tiger, King Yong and the two old men behind him brought Duan Ling Tian and the others along to head directly towards the Capital of Darkhan Dynasty.
The feeling when looking down at the Capital of Darkhan Dynasty from the sky was completely different from the feeling when standing before the gate of the Capital and looking up at it.
“How magnificent!” Duan Ling Tian’s heart shook as he looked at the city before him that was like an enormous beast.
The entire city emitted an aura that was ancient and filled with experience, and it seemed to be narrating how long in history it had existed.
“How long the Darkhan Dynasty has existed is something that is already impossible to find out.” King Yong sighed. “Before our Darkstone Empire and the other Empires in the Darkhan Dynasty had been born, the Darkhan Dynasty had already existed.”
“Such as the gold and silver we use normally are precisely from the Darkhan Dynasty… No matter how the ruler of an Empire, Imperial Kingdom, or Kingdom changed, so long as the Darkhan Dynasty still exists, then the gold and silver bills won’t lose their worth.” As he finished speaking, King Yong was filled with deep veneration.
A dignified existence at the Void Interpretation Stage couldn’t refrain from arousing reverence from the heart when facing the history of the Darkhan Dynasty.
As the Capital of the Darkhan Dynasty, it was heavily guarded, and not everyone was able to casually enter the Capital.
At the gate to the Capital was two rows of armored guard standing there, and they registered the people that entered and exited the Capital.
