ObligatoryTLNote: To be very honest with you guys, the author is really getting on my nerves, although the increased chapter length is also a pain, but still with the way the story is going and all the bullsh…. I mean difficult terms he keeps introducing, I am holding on as best as I can, but really am hoping for some reprieve from the story. Btw, there might be some days I might not be able to deliver a chapter, since the length as doubled, it makes it doubly difficult for me to push out a chapter of even an average quality, let alone something I spent extra effort to ensure accuracy on. So, hoping you guys understand and do keep all of this mind, while reading this chapter. Btw since some people raised the issue of donations, I did look into it, and I personally feel, that it is better to not go that way. For various reasons(including laziness), I feel that donations (in whichever form) are not suited for me so, I won’t be bringing this up again and keep this site running as it has been doing so far, purely on my own selfish will
and the LingQi absorbed from the readers, oops wasn’t meant to say that. Hehehe, just move on, no suspicious text here.
P.S. Some guy on reddit said things start happening soonish, so let’s hope for the best, and if nothing happens, curse him with no rest.
“I am unable to leave from here, little friend, I am begging you, please go to Corpse yin sect, and look for my brother Ye, who will come and save me.” Wu Yu’s face revealed an expression of pleading, as he repeatedly bowed.
Wang Lin quietly said: “Do you have any method to let me avoid the corpse puppet, when I leave from here?”
Wu Yu nodded, with a look of sincerity said: “Focusing my meagre Yuan Ying qi I would be able to transmit you to Corpse Yin Sect, You would arrive directly at the headquarters of the Corpse Yin Sect.”
Wang Lin stared at him for a while and said smiling faintly: “Oh? Since you are able to transmit me, why not go back yourself?”
Wu Yu sighed and said: “Corpse puppet cannot go away more than hundred miles from me, this applies to me also, If the distance between us exceeds hundred miles, then he will die immediately, and If I had my mortal body then I would have suffered great mental damage, but presently I am in this Yuan Ying body, If I leave that range, then my Yuan Ying will disperse, and I will die, I do not want that except as a last resort to take down the corpse puppet with me.”
At this time, the statute shook with more and more severity, yin supporting it was failing to resist, Wu Yu saw that Wang Lin still maintained a neutral expression, so he said while clenching his teeth: “I, Wu Yu, swear on my Yuan Ying, that if I have uttered even the least bit of falsity to my little friend, then it is bound to be eaten by the corpse puppet to its fill, little friend, help this old man once, Adai may be able to deliver you, he has on his body nine paper talismans, I have often found that they when used, have immeasureable power.
In addition I noticed that your spiritual power is of the yin cold variant, the practitioners of my corpse yin sect also happen to have yin cold variation, since you had come to these vast jungle ruins, presumably to to absorb to find place of yin cold qi, amongst the places that have yin cold qi such as Heaven, Earth, Xuan, Huang, this is a Huang Yin place, if you go to Corpse Yin Sect, it would be highly beneficial to you, because in Corpse Yin Sect there is a place used for closed-door practice that has Earth Yin quality Yin Cold Qi.
Wang Lin half narrowed his eyes, as he said: “Since Corpse Yin Sect has Earth Yin quality Yin cold qi, then why did you chose to make a breakthrough here?”
Wu Yu looked deeply at Wang Lin, even though he looks like a youth, he is extremely cautious, despite all his complains, he maintains a casual look.
Hearing Wang Lin’s question, he smiled and said: “Little friend, this old man swore on his yuan ying just a moment ago, oh, the corpse puppet and live persons are different, the strength has a certain limit, we must absorb Huang Yin quality Yin Cold Qi, so I brought him here.”
At this point, the statue violently shook as if there was an earthquake, and deep cracks started appearing, a ka ka sound emerged, as the cracks grew more and more, appearing as it would collapse, Wu Yu looked pale, and said anxiously: “Little friend, if you want to borrow my Corpse Yin Sect’s cultivation area, then I will use my unique secret technique to send you, the Corpse Yin Sect won’t suspect you, there’s not enough time, you need to consider this quick.”
The moment he finished, the entire statue again shook violently, cracks appeared throughout the body of the statue and some parts even began to fall.
Wang Lin’s mind whirled, he knew that if he didn’t leave from here, and wait until the corpse puppet to arrive, then he will certainly be putting himself in danger, the corpse puppet seems fond of killing.
Thinking so, with no time left, he nodded at Wu Yu.
Wu Yu took a deep breath, he moved his hands to form seals, making mudras unceasingly, a pentagonal halo slowly appeared before him.
Seven coloured light was flashing from this halo, and a hint of suction force coming from it.
At this point, the statue broke with a thud, the Corpse puppet said in a cold voice: “Master, this time you are now in my sights, where will you run.”
Wu Yu’s face became pale, waiting for the transmission spell to complete, he screamed at once: “Little friend, go quickly, whether this old man escapes, would all depend on you.” Then his body disappeared, as he floating cross-legged drilled into the stone statue on the side.
Meanwhile, Wang Lin moved, rushed into the seven coloured pentagonal transmission halo, which was fluctuating at this moment, secretly showing signs of collapsing.
The weird person hesitated, but in the end rushed into the transmission spell with Wang Lin.
At this point, the statue suddenly collapsed, the Corpse puppet’s face had an expression of ridicule, was about to speak, when he suddenly looked at the transmission spell, his face changed colour immediately.
Meanwhile, Wang Lin, after entering the transmission halo, felt as if on a circular path, he felt his body stretched infinitely, on his side were numerous points of light, not twinkling like the stars.
Looking back he saw the weird person behind him having a look of surprise on his face, looking left and right, discovered Wang Lin staring at him, he rushed to Wang Lin, bared his teeth, his eyes were not vigilant but there was a trace of loss.
After an unknown period of time, at the front of the passage, appeared a bright light, as this light kept growing and after reaching the whole passage, there emerged a strong suction force, Wang Lin and the weird person were quickly sucked inside.
Corpse Yin Sect, amongst the devil’s way sects in Zhao territory, although not as powerful as the number one devil’s way number one sect, Tian Dao Sect, but it is superior in mysteriousness, it would be no exaggeration to say that Corpse Yin Sect is Zhao territory’s number one mysterious sect. [TLNote: Mysterious sects are known so because they are mysterious, on a serious note, Tian = Heaven/Sky, Dao = Way, you guys can figure out the irony]
How many disciples the sect has, where did the entrance to the sect lay, and how many YuanYing masters it has, those sort of things, nobody of the outside world knew.
There were even rumours that Corpse Yin Sect have long been dead many years ago, the whole sect eliminated, with not even a single one left alive. [TLNote: Offtopic again but, …. the greatest trick the devil ever pulled was to make the world believe that it didn’t exist]
All in all, this was a very low-key sect, but it was low-profile, not forgotten, and this was only because of the thing people remembered Corpse Yin Sect for.
And that thing, was the cultivation method of Corpse Yin Sect!
The Disciples of Corpse Yin Sect, get a one chance in a lifetime to engage in refining ritual of a corpse, once successfully refined, then for his whole life would not change.
This was a cultivation method brimming with miraculous colour!
The Corpse Yin Sect’s Disciples, in addition to their practise, also focus on the corpse puppet’s cultivation, this cultivation method is said to be full of miraculous colour because, 500 years ago, a Corpse Yin Sect Ancestor reached Late Foundation building stage, at the same time, on the side, the Corpse Puppet reached Yuan Ying stage unexpectedly.
Although this disciple went missing in the end, but his appearance took the Zhao cultivation community by storm, particularly those with poor cultivation, who longed for getting into the Corpse Yin Sect.
But despite how many people sought out the gate to Corpse Yin Sect, just like misty clouds, nobody could find.
At the extreme west of Zhao territory, there is a vast plain, which is enveloped by yin cold qi all year round, even amongst xiuxian practitioners, there are very few who come here.
Because besides being enveloped by cold qi, even if YuanYing experts were reluctant to draw near this nine earth qi, if someone below YuanYing gets near, then he would even get injured.
Since originally there were such huge restrictions, it would be ideal for hidden treasures, this idea occured to a lot of practitioners, then under the lead of several Devil’s way great owls, massive amounts of devil’s way practitioners arrived and after suffering through numerous setbacks, finally managed to break the restrictions and go in.
But what made everyone astonished was that this plain, unexpectedly, didn’t have even the least bit of remarkableness, one group of followers of the devil’s way tunneled into the underground, but didn’t achieve anything in the end.
The treasure hunt, turned into a complete joke, and was mocked by the Right Way Alliance. [TLNote: The Right Way or the Eight-fold path as described in Buddhism]
Gradually, due to it’s powerful restrictions and being devoid of any treasures, it was soon forgotten by all.
At the center of this plain, was a fog shrouded piece of land.
Within the mists, there is a very broad area of marshes and swamps, under which is a huge cavern, the cave is easily accessible with countless branches, every branch being connected to a smaller cave, which in turn connected to other smaller caves, extending numerous branches, again and again, almost the entire plain ground, all densely occupied with large and small caves.
It is here that the gate to Zhao territory’s Devil’s Way mysterious Corpse Yin Sect lay.
In the middle of a large cave, about the size of several heng yue sect halls taken together, where eight purple giant logs were raised to form a majestic formation, a faint trace of spiritual force emerged from it, without any beginning or end.
The eight slender giant logs bore an ancient symbol pattern, which looked awe inspiring. From between the eight slender giant logs, several fluorescent coloured lights connected, these lights could be seen interlaced together, forming an aperture, which was further connected to forty-nine apertures.
Behind these eight slender giant logs, were sitting eight cross-legged youths, behind each of which was a floating coffin.
At this moment, the formation within the eight slender giant logs, five apertures flashed, followed by a youth who wearing blue shirt together with his coffin, appeared in the formation.
One of the Youth on the Eight slender giant logs, opening both his eyes, looking indifferently at the people within the formation, said in an emotionless voice: “From Where?”
The blue shirt teenager quickly bent over, and said respectfully: “Second ranked XiuZhen Country Lu Corpse Yin Branch, Lin Yi, here to attend the promotion test.”
The Youth glancing at the blue shirted youth, said coldly: “Go inside the 18th hole, on your right hand side.”
The youth immediately cupping his fists in another, went out of the formation, looking around, calculating in his head, moving his body went into one of the countless tunnels.
The Youth nodded slightly, no longer speaking, closed his eyes.
Over the next few hours, several people came out of the formation in quick succession, whenever high level people would arrive, thirteen apertures would light up, amongst the eight youths, the moment that thirteen apertures lit up, two of them opened their eyes.
As time passed, suddenly the apertures within the formation lit up, this time the quantity was six.
A Youth opened his eyes, stared at the formation, at this moment, all of a sudden light flashed within the formation, and immediately another seven apertures lit up.
“Huh?” At this point another youth opened his eyes, both of them stared at the formation.
Then the formation flashed again, the number of apertures lit up rose to thirteen, then instantly grew to twenty-eight.
“It seems that there are seniors coming up.” Two more youths opened their eyes. Four cold eyes, full of respect, looked at the formation.
At that moment, the LingQi spreading from the formation retreated suddenly, as a roaring sound came from within the formation, the number of apertures lit grew crazily from twenty-eight, as one after another apertures lit up.
The remaining four youths opened their eyes at the same time, their faces barely restraining their shock, as the number of apertures lit up to forty-eight, at which point the eight youths, quickly without hesitation, went down to one knee, with their hands in a weird pose, they loudly shouted: “Welcome Ancestor……”
