Chapter 621: Martial Monarch’s Inheritance
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Duan Ling Tian naturally didn’t know, nor was he interested in knowing, what was happening in the other third floors of the Sword Monarch’s Treasure.
Presently, he was being suppressed by the Mirror Puppet.
Since the Mirror Puppet kept a close watch on his flaw when his mood became anxious, it attacked like a storm, causing him to be taken by surprise and be unable to defend against it.
A swift black colored sword light flashed out from the Mirror Puppet’s hand, and it seemed to have transformed into a bolt of lightning that descended onto the spirit sword that Duan Ling Tian had raised up hastily.
The two grade one spirit swords that were identical collided with each other, and they emitted an ear piercing sound of iron colliding with each other.
At the same time, Duan Ling Tian felt a violent force come from the sword in the Mirror Puppet’s hand, and it suppressed his strength that he hadn’t fully mobilized yet.
Instantly, the violent force from the Mirror Puppet’s sword followed along the spirit sword in Duan Ling Tian’s hand to easily gush into Duan Ling Tian’s body.
Even if Duan Ling Tian executed the high grade Earth Rank defense martial skill, Earth Dragon’s Barrier, it was still useless.
The defensive qi barrier formed from the Earth Dragon’s Barrier couldn’t withstand a blow before the violent force of the Mirror Puppet, and it instantly shattered into pieces.
The violent force gushed into Duan Ling Tian’s body and blasted him flying.
Duan Ling Tian was like an arrow that had left the bow and heavily collided with the distance wall of the cavern.
“Pu!” Duan Ling Tian couldn’t refrain from spitting out a mouthful of blood, causing his countenance to turn ghastly pale, and he was in an exceedingly sorry state.
“The Mirror Puppet is like my shadow… Now, I’ve instead lost to my own shadow. If it’s spread out, I wonder how many people would laugh at me!” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and laughed bitterly.
“I’ll search through the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor once more and see if there’s any way to overcome the Mirror Puppet!” Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath, and then he fled hurriedly when faced with the Mirror Puppet that chased after him.
At the same time, the lifetime worth of memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor flashed within his mind.
The Rebirth Martial Emperor was a formidable Inscription Master, and this was undeniable.
In the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor was the method to set up the Inscription Formation that formed the Mirror Puppet, and there was also a great deal of information about the Mirror Puppet.
But when Duan Ling Tian seriously combed through and ordered this information, he noticed to his astonishment that the information was none other than lavish praise about how formidable the Mirror Puppet was.
Once the Mirror Image Formation is set up, then it would be difficult for anyone to flee the fate of being killed by the Mirror Puppet…
“If I’m the person that set up the Inscription Formation, then I’d naturally be happy as I watched another being killed by the Mirror Puppet… But the problem is I’m the person that’s being oppressed by the Mirror Puppet!” At the same time that Duan Ling Tian fled, his mood became even more irritable.
“Could it be that there’s really no way?” Duan Ling Tian continued to flash through the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor that was related to the Mirror Puppet.
But unfortunately, after a long time, Duan Ling Tian still didn’t find the slightest clue.
Time silently passed by.
Duan Ling Tian was still being chased after by the Mirror Puppet, and his state grew worse and worse.
Presently, Duan Ling Tian was still ceaselessly searching through the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor.
As the saying goes, the heavens never let down one who set their mind on something.
This saying wasn’t wrong in the slightest.
After a day and night passed, Duan Ling Tian finally saw a blurry memory amongst the lifetime worth of memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor.
This blurry memory precisely spoke about the flaw of the Mirror Puppet.
“Besides being without a soul or feelings and being tireless, the most terrifying aspect of the Mirror Puppet was that no matter what the target comprehended or what new changes the target possessed, it would follow the target to learn it.” The blurry memories gradually became clear.
“Besides being its strong point, this characteristic was also its biggest weak point… If the target intentionally caused qi deviation in the body to harm himself, the Mirror Puppet would normally follow the target to cause harm to itself.”
“The target could stop in time, yet the Mirror Puppet wouldn’t think so much, and the simple minded Mirror Puppet would stubbornly go all the way until it caused its own destruction.” These memories caused Duan Ling Tian’s eyes to light up.
“So it’s so simple… To think that I was played by this fellow for so long. If it’s up to me, this test isn’t just a test of strength, but it’s also a test of wisdom! More precisely speaking, it’s a test that’s a combination of strength and wisdom.” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart as he dodged the sword strike of the Mirror Puppet that flashed over once more.
Instantly, the Origin Energy in his body roiled.
When Duan Ling Tian’s acute spiritual force extended onto the body of the Mirror Puppet, he noticed the Origin Energy within its body was roiling as well, and the situation within its body was identical to his.
“Then I’ll make a big gamble!” Duan Ling Tian’s heart shook as he emitted an insane expression from his eyes.
Subsequently, the Origin Energy in his body instantly charged towards the path it flowed from.
All along the way, it destroyed many meridians.
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian only felt extreme pain.
Fortunately, these injuries were within his scope of control, and so long as he consumed a Great Recovery Pill later, he would be healed.
At the same time, Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force was able to notice that the Origin Energy of the Mirror Puppet was similarly destroying the meridians in its body…
The Origin Energy in Duan Ling Tian’s body charged out, destroying his meridians all along the way.
The Mirror Puppet followed along in his footsteps.
“It’s almost there.” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart and stopped the pulsating of his Origin Energy.
The Mirror Puppet on the other hand didn’t know how to stop, and it still continued to destroy its own body.
Duan Ling Tian’s gaze went slightly cold after he consumed a Great Recovery Pill, and he moved up towards the staggering Mirror Puppet.
Sword Drawing Arts!
An exceedingly swift sword strike howled out.
When facing the Mirror Puppet that raised its hand slowly and whose strength was affected by its internal injuries, Duan Ling Tian seemed to have transformed into a fierce tiger that instantly bit off the Mirror Puppet’s neck.
A deep sword mark was left behind on the throat of the Mirror Puppet, yet no blood flowed out.
Right at this moment, the Mirror Puppet’s body stopped moving, then its body trembled before instantly exploding and transforming into nothingness.
The Inscription Formation was broken.
“Congratulation on passing the sixth test… As the first person to pass through all my tests, you’ve obtained my lifelong inheritance! Walk through the stone door that has opened ahead and you’ll be able to arrive at the place where I lived the last days of my life.” The Martial Monarch’s voice sounded out once more, and it entered extremely clearly into Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
“I’ve passed!” Duan Ling Tian started laughing and was extremely excited in his heart.
Right at this moment.
Duan Ling Tian noticed that the cavern wall ahead suddenly shook before numerous hideous cracks appeared on it, and when combined together, it seemed to form a spider’s web.
In next to no time, the cavern wall crumbled, and an enormous stone door appeared before Duan Ling Tian’s eyes.
Presently, the stone door was rising up.
An enormous bang sounded out, and the stone door had completely risen.
A passageway was revealed behind the stone door.
The passageway couldn’t be considered to be long, and as he stood on the spot, Duan Ling Tian was able to see the light at the other side.
“The Martial Monarch’s Inheritance!” Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath. At this moment, he was practically able to hear his own heartbeat.
Without the slightest bit of hesitation, Duan Ling Tian flashed directly towards the passageway ahead.
Although he possessed the lifetime worth of memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, but he wasn’t the Rebirth Martial Emperor after all. To him, the Martial Emperor’s inheritance was an existence that was far beyond his reach.
Now, this existence that was far beyond his reach was within his grasp, and he was naturally excited.
After passing through the passageway, another extremely spacious cavern appeared before Chen Xi’s eyes.
The cavern was extremely large, yet it was empty.
In the distance, there was a stone platform, and a person sat cross-legged there.
Precisely speaking, it was a completely intact skeletal remains.
The skeleton wore white clothes of unknown material, and even after experiencing so many years of time, it actually didn’t decay in the slightest, and it was shocking.
Duan Ling Tian walked forward with large strides, slowly walking to stand before the skeleton and size it up.
The skeleton was extremely robust, and it presumably was a robust male many years ago.
Presently, the right hand of the skeleton was stretched out, the hand firmly grasped a sword that stood on the ground, a sword that was simple and unadorned.
“This sword…” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes couldn’t help but light up.
He was able to discern that this sword was even stronger than the incomplete sword in his hand…
“Eh.” Suddenly, Duan Ling Tian saw a word that was inscribed on the hilt of the sword, and he was completely stunned.
That was obviously the character ‘浪’!
“It wouldn’t be such a coincidence, right?” Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath and took a step forward before raising his hand to touch the sword in the hand of the skeleton.
For a time, Duan Ling Tian felt this sword was icy cold on touch, and along with his Spiritual Force stretching out and fusing into it, he’d confirmed something.
“This sword is a Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword!” Duan Ling Tian confirmed it.
“Not only that, this spirit sword ought to have been refined by the Rebirth Martial Emperor himself…” Duan Ling Tian who’d fused with the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor knew some of the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s habits in detail.
The second lifetime of the Rebirth Martial Emperor had studied the Dao of Weapons Refinement to the limit.
Later on, as long as he refined a Quasi Royal Grade spirit weapon and Royal Grade spirit weapon, he’d inscribe a ‘浪’ character on it.
The reason he inscribed this word was because the Rebirth Martial Emperor was called Gu Lang which were formed of the characters ‘古浪’ during his second lifetime.
The name Gu Lang was the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s name in his second lifetime, and it had accompanied him for an entire lifetime.
Of course, when the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s second lifetime once again stood at the peak of Cloud Continent, besides the few friends by his side, there were few people that knew his true name.
Everyone one respectfully addressed him as Rebirth Martial Emperor!
In the Cloud Continent of that time, the Rebirth Martial Emperor was a legend, an invincible legend.
“According to the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, he didn’t refine many Quasi Royal Grade spirit weapons and Royal Grade spirit weapons, and he’d gifted them to the good friends or relatives by his side.” Duan Ling Tian’s gaze descended onto the skeleton before his eyes. “Could it be that this person has some sort of close connection with the Rebirth Martial Emperor?”
When he thought up to here, Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but shake his head and laugh in self ridicule. “What am I thinking off to? When the Rebirth Martial Emperor underwent rebirth in his second lifetime, it was an entire 10,000 over years before now, and no matter how strong a Martial Monarch or Martial Emperor was, they’d probably have already transformed into a pile of dirt.”
“But people will age and die in the time of 10,000 years… Yet high grade spirit weapons would be able to last forever because of their special material.”
