Chapter 714: The Devilseal Tablet’s Origins
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Since then, Duan Ling Tian had kept the Devilseal Tablet within his Spatial Ring.
Yet never had he imagined that the Devilseal Tablet would suddenly act unusually, especially when the small black dot appeared between Zi Shang’s brows and after the block colored flame brand appeared. The Devilseal Tablet seemed as if it had taken stimulants and was extremely excited.
Zi Shang arrived before Duan Ling Tian, and his bare fist that contained his skyrocketed Origin Energy swept out once more towards Duan Ling Tian.
At this instant, even the air seemed to have been sucked out from this area Duan Ling Tian was standing at, and at the same time that it caused him to feel extreme pressure, he felt extremely uncomfortable.
“At a time like this, I can only withdraw the Devilseal Tablet and use it as a last resort to save a hopeless situation… I keep having the feeling that something insane will happen! But, it ought to not be targeted at me.” When his thoughts spun up to here, Duan Ling Tian noticed that Zi Shang’s bare fist was very close by, and it didn’t allow him the time to continue pondering.
At this instant, Duan Ling Tian only had a single thought, and it was to take out the Devilseal Tablet and place it before him, as he wanted to see if the Devilseal Tablet would be capable of stopping Zi Shang.
Truthfully speaking, Duan Ling Tian was still slightly perturbed at this moment.
Practically the instant the Devilseal Tablet appeared, Zi Shang’s bare fist had already smashed onto the Devilseal Tablet, and it emitted a wave of enormous bangs that were like thunderclaps and instilled fear in the hearts of all.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
With the point Zi Shang’s punch descended on as the center, the terrifying force gave rise to waves of horrifyingly strong winds that swept out in all directions, and it caused the clothes of many people to flutter.
Yet the Devilseal Tablet instead lay before Duan Ling Tian and floated there without moving in the slightest.
When Zi Shang’s punch that contained the strength of 70 ancient horned dragons descended onto the Devilseal Tablet, it seemed as if it was scratching an itch for the Devilseal Tablet, and not to mention causing any harm, it was even unable to make it move in the slightest.
“Looks like I’ve made the right bet!” Duan Ling Tian was the first to reach to this, and his gaze lit up.
The second person to react to this was Feng Wu Dao.
When Feng Wu Dao saw Duan Ling Tian’s grade three spirit sword being blasted flying by Zi Shang, and then subsequently saw Zi Shang make a move against Duan Ling Tian once more, he’d already intended to make a move and obstruct Zi Shang.
But right at the instant he intended to make a move, he instead noticed that a broken stone tablet had appeared out of thin air before Duan Ling Tian.
There was nothing special about this stone tablet. There was a large portion of it missing, and its surface was inscribed with dense words, causing it to seem like a stone tablet that recorded something.
But the following scene caused him to be stunned completely.
Zi Shang’s bare fist had swept through the sky and smashed onto the broken stone tablet, yet the stone tablet actually didn’t move an inch.
“What stone tablet is this?” After he recovered from his shock, Feng Wu Dao couldn’t help but gasp.
He felt that after going through half his lifetime, he’d seen many strange people and unusual things, yet it was still the first time he’d seen something so peculiar.
The broken stone tablet was obviously not a spirit weapon, yet it easily stopped the attack of Zi Shang after Zi Shang had executed his secret technique, and it was truly astonishing.
“It seems like a tablet, I don’t see anything special about it.”
“There’re words on the stone tablet! Do any of you recognize those words? I actually don’t recognize a single word on it.”
“There’s something strange about this stone tablet!”
“Bulls**t! If there wasn’t something strange about it, would it be capable of stopping Zi Shang’s attack and not even move in inch?”
“This broken stone tablet belongs to Duan Ling Tian? Could it be Duan Ling Tian’s trump card?”
“Even though this stone tablet looks to be extremely normal, as the saying goes, the highest state is to return to simplicity. I think that it’s surely a rare treasure.”
The topic in the surroundings of the Cage Battle Arena completely twined around the broken stone tablet that had appeared out of thin air before Duan Ling Tian.
Besides Duan Ling Tian and Zi Shang, everyone else felt that it was unbelievable.
All of the were curious about exactly what was the stone tablet that Duan Ling Tian had taken out?
“Seal… Devilseal… How could the Devilseal Tablet be in your possession?” Right at this moment, a ghastly and aged voice muttered with slight panic.
Even though the voice wasn’t loud, it was still heard by many Void Interpretation Stage martial artists present that possessed deep cultivations.
The gazes of these Void Interpretation Stage martial artists descended onto Zi Shang in unison as the voice had come from Zi Shang.
“Hmm?” Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian noticed as well that even though the eyes of Zi Shang who’d lost all reason was still extremely dull, yet Zi Shang seemed to have suddenly recovered his reason.
But this voice doesn’t seem like Zi Shang, right?
Right when Duan Ling Tian felt extremely bewildered, the scene before him changed suddenly, and it caused him to be dumbstruck.
After the Devilseal Tablet was smashed by Zi Shang’s punch, it moved instantly to swiftly fly towards Zi Shang before fiercely smashing onto Zi Shang’s face without holding back in the slightest.
It was as if it was taking revenge for the punch Zi Shang smashed on it.
An enormous bang sounded out as Zi Shang was blasted flying by the Devilseal Tablet, causing him to repeatedly spit out a few mouthfuls of blood and have an expression that flickered between an ashen and livid expression, and he seemed to be in an extremely sorry state.
“What’s going on?” Duan Ling Tian was stunned, and the others were stunned as well.
Could anyone tell them exactly what was going on before their eyes?
All the spectators including Duan Ling Tian didn’t have the time to recover from their shock when the Devilseal Tablet whistled out once more, and it smashed onto Zi Shang once more and blasted him flying.
Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!
When facing Zi Shang, the Devilseal Tablet seemed as if it was tireless as it whistled out repeatedly and repeatedly blasted Zi Shang flying.
During this entire process, Zi Shang didn’t have the slightest ability to resist.
“Look! Quickly! The black colored flame brand between Zi Shang’s brows is becoming faint… Could it be that it’s going to vanish?”
“Could it be that this broken stone tablet of Duan Ling Tian’s is the bane of Zi Shang’s secret technique? Once the flame brand between Zi Shang’s brows vanishes, his strength will be reduced greatly, and at that time, the one that wins might not be him any longer.”
“This stone tablet is too abnormal… At any rate, Zi Shang that has executed his secret technique possesses the strength of a Void Interpretation Stage expert, yet it’s utterly insufficient before the stone tablet.”
“Yeah, even though Zi Shang’s attacks are strong, yet when it descends onto this stone tablet, it seems as if it’s scratching an itch for the stone tablet, and it’s utterly unable to make the stone tablet move an inch.”
The crowd of spectators in the surroundings of the Cage Battle Arena discussed animatedly.
Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian’s gaze descended between the brows of Zi Shang as well.
Along with the Devilseal Tablet completely crushing Zi Shang, the flame brand between Zi Shang’s brows was gradually dimming down, and it completely vanished in the end.
It was as if the flame brand had never appeared.
After the black colored flame brand vanished, Zi Shang’s eyes that were dim and listless had finally recovered the color in them.
After the flame brand between Zi Shang’s brows vanished completely, the Devilseal Tablet seemed to have completely lost its target, and it stopped on the stop for a short moment before returning to Duan Ling Tian’s side in the end.
“Zi Shang’s secret technique has been undone?” Duan Ling Tian guessed in his heart.
The distant Zi Shang who’d received heavy injuries and was completely beyond recognition was barely able to use his Origin Energy to stop the bleeding from his injuries, yet his breathing was extremely rapid.
“Duan Ling Tian actually obtained the Devilseal Tablet… Could it be that he’s really my bane?” Zi Shang stared hatefully at Duan Ling Tian and silently gnashed his teeth.
“Elder Ghost, could it be that there’s no way to deal with the Devilseal Tablet?” Zi Shang took a deep breath before he communicated with the strand of incomplete soul that was concealed in the depths of his mind.
This strand of incomplete soul had emerged from a broken piece of stone that he’d obtained years ago, and according to the owner of the incomplete soul, Ghost Flame, the broken piece of stone was a piece of the Devilseal Tablet, whereas, Ghost Flame was a formidable existence that was suppressed by this piece of the Devilseal Tablet.
Ghost Flame has once said that his soul was originally extremely strong, yet it was precisely because he was suppressed by the Devilseal Tablet and sealed within it that after lingering on in a steadily worsening condition until today, only a strand of his incomplete soul remained.
“The Devilseal Tablet is only effective against ‘devils’ or in other words, devil path cultivators… But so long as the Devilseal Tablet is present, it’s impossible for me to help you like I have in the past. You can only rely on your own strength to deal with Duan Ling Tian.” The ghastly and aged voice sounded out, and within the voice was deep fear mixed within, fear towards the Devilseal Tablet.
“Win by relying on my own strength?” The corners of Zi Shang’s mouth twitched.
He knew his own limitations.
Early on when he found out about Duan Ling Tian’s ability to use soul skills and the scope of effect of Duan Ling Tian’s soul skills, he knew that he would be utterly incapable of defeating Duan Ling Tian without Ghost Flame’s held.
“Besides that…” The ghastly and aged voice continued to resound within Zi Shang’s mind. “You must not allow Duan Ling Tian to obtain the piece of Devilseal Tablet in your possession, no matter what!”
“Otherwise, once the incomplete Devilseal Tablet in his possession combines once more with the piece in your possession, and then he finds the last piece of the Devilseal Tablet, the complete Devilseal Tablet will appear in the world once again. At that time, devil path cultivators will greet a calamity once more!” As he finished speaking, the aged and ghastly voice was filled with terror. “If he possessed the complete Devilseal Tablet in his hands today and not an incomplete Devilseal Tablet, then even if I hid in the depths of your mind, I would still be annihilated without a doubt!”
Zi Shang couldn’t help but gasp when he heard this. “The complete Devilseal Tablet is actually so terrifying?”
“Of course! That Devilseal Tablet is a Super Saint Weapon that’s on the Ten Great Saint Weapon Rankings!” The aged and ghastly voice continued.
“Ten Great Saint Weapon Rankings? A Super Saint Weapon?” Zi Shang couldn’t help but be shocked, and he only recovered from this shock after a few moments.
Even though he knew nothing about the Ten Great Saint Weapon Rankings, nor did he know anything about the Supreme Saint Weapon, just hearing it allowed him to know that they weren’t simple.
“How did Duan Ling Tian obtain the Devilseal Tablet?” Zi Shang spoke with slight envy and hatred.
“I don’t know… All I know is that because of a certain reason, the Devilseal Tablet was divided into three a long time ago. Amongst these three pieces, the main portion is the incomplete Devilseal Tablet in his hands, and the two pieces of the Devilseal Tablet are only secondary. One of these pieces is within your possession.” The ghastly and aged voice spoke once more.
