Xian Ni Chapter 137 – Country Wide Sealing Formation

ObligatoryTLNote: I know you guys are confused as to why chapters are delayed. Well that is more or less due to me unable to spare much time to translation these days. The team has been highly supportive over the past few days, and I can’t even think about what would have happened if I had to do this all by myself. The release schedule would have been way worse than it currently is (Think one chapter a week or worse). Without further ado, I pray for better times for me and you. Enjoy.

Wang Lin gave a look of surprise as caught the jade talisman, and quickly thanked the middle-aged man. However, after having thrown the jade talisman, he no longer paid any attention to Wang Lin, and instead flew into the five-coloured phoenix chariot to whisper to Feng Luan.

Wang Lin was also quite tactful. The moment the middle-aged man flew into the phoenix chariot, he asked to be excused, and flew out of the chariot to join the rapidly advancing army of cultivators.
At the border of Huo Fen Country close to Xuan Wu Country, besides the migrating cultivators there were also mortals migrating towards Xuan Wu Country. The fire beasts, after mutating, rarely attacked the mortals as they now had only one target: Wang Lin, who stood in the middle of the army of cultivators.

As time went on, the number of fire beasts slowly chasing behind the army continued to increase. As their numbers increased, a pressure grew in the hearts of most of the cultivators and lingered there heavily.

At the border of Huo Fen Country, there was a huge basin. After the army of cultivators arrived here, a total of nineteen YuanYing monks from the Four Great Sects, as well as some important XiuZhen clans, got together for an important private discussion.

After the private discussion, the nineteen people flew out from the army. As bursts of thunder drifted over the basin, a Luo He Sect YuanYing cultivator said in a sinking tone: “After many years of exploration by my Luo He Sect, we can be sure that this ancestral land of volcanic beasts is the birthplace of the fire spirit beasts. It seems that there is a seal here that was made to suppress all of the volcanoes, which was once relied upon by the Ancestors of Huo Fen Country thousands of years ago. We may be able to use it to confine the fire spirit beasts to this Huo Fen Country.

A red-haired man from XieMo Sect glanced at the basin and snorted lightly as he said: “Since our Ancestors had already taken preventive measures, why was this problem not eliminated completely at the time? Then we would not have been driven to this point today.”

There were three YuanYing stage cultivators from Corpse Yin Sect, with no coffins behind them. Clearly the corpses had taken over the bodies and were just one step away from possessing them completely.

The three acted indifferently, as if they did not care much for all these things. Had it not been for the fact that the oppressive Huo Fen Country’s aura was now unsuitable for their recovery, they would not have even participated in this migration.

War Shrine Sect’s Ancestor Song’s eyes shone, as he said: “Our Huo Fen Country’s Ancestors could not have calculated that the volcanoes would eventually erupt like this, or that fire spirit beasts would cause such a disaster. Even if they had predicted it, I am afraid that their solution would not have been effective enough to last for thousands of years. This formation that they left us is enough of a lifeline for us. This is already enough, friends. Let us go.”

With that said, the old man surnamed Song moved out. Including that middle-aged man and Feng Luan, six YuanYing Ancestors stood together, each in a different position. Their hands moved rapidly, making various hand mudras.

The six people shouted in unison as six lotuses formed from their palms and quickly fell towards the eastern corner of the basin. With a boom, the entire basin shook as red mist began to rise.

The Luo He Sect, XieMo Sect, and Corpse Yin Sect followed suit, as their blossoming lotuses fell due south, west, and north, respectively.

The boom grew fiercer and even more red mist rose from the basin. The red mist in the air condensed to form various shapes, before ultimately forming a hollow ring.

At this moment, several YuanYing cultivators of the Xiuzhen clans who had not yet joined into the action wore an expression of helplessness. They patted their foreheads with their right hands, and their respective YuanYings flew out from their bodies into the middle of the hollow ring formed by the mist without hesitation.
[TLNote: Essentially the reason YuanYing stage is called so because in order to reach this stage, one must form a “YuanYing” within his body, more details later on in the story]

“Gentlemen, Daoyou, why are you all standing still? What are you waiting for?” A LuoHe Sect cultivator suddenly shouted.

From the mist ring, a sharp voice came from a YuanYing, as it said: “Nevermind, Gentlemen, Daoyou, since the four sects have supplemented their Yuan pill gifts, there will not be any damage for even a hundred years once we integrate with it.” With that the YuanYing turned, moving its hands rapidly to form seals, and rapidly broke into the mist ring. It suddenly disappeared, fully integrating into the ring.

The other YuanYings, clenching their teeth, rushed into the red mist ring within the blink of an eye. Although the ring’s size did not change, there appeared a trace of spirit movement.

Huo Fen Country’s Ancestors, in order to prevent the outbreak of volcanic eruptions, had prepared a nation-wide array that not only needed the contribution of the four major sects, but also needed YuanYing cultivators to voluntarily deposit themselves in it for a temporary period in order to ensure that the formation was fully deployed without any gaps. Thus the entire country would be locked up completely.

The colour of the blood-red mist grew more and more concentrated as it slowly floated upwards. After reaching a great height, it suddenly spread at a great speed with a crashing sound, and quickly spread to the four corners of Huo Fen Country.

Wherever the red ring spread, red mist rose from the craters, large and small. All of them contributed to the original red mist, continuously increasing the speed of expansion.

Within the time it takes to burn a stick of incense, the ring of mist had spread across all of Huo Fen Country, and a cover of red mist fell from the sky like an upside-down bowl. The nationwide array to lock the country had been successfully activated.

Once this nationwide locking array was activated, aside from mortals who could still pass freely, neither cultivators nor spirit beasts below the level of Spirit forming stage, could get through it.

The nineteen YuanYing Monks of the four major sects, immediately after the nationwide array activated, moved forward and grabbed the YuanYing bodies. They were returned to their families, and if someone didn’t have a family, it was deposited in the LuoHe Sect’s unified storage.

Several cultivators of LuoHe Sect, standing outside the array, bent into a bow, and shouted loudly: “Gentlemen, Daoyou, please rest assured, my LuoHe Sect will ensure your safety. This nationwide array sealing the country will be maintained for three months. In three months we must have gained a solid foothold in Xuan Wu Country. At that time, we will request help from a superior ranked Xiuzhen country to get rid of the beasts. On that day, we will personally come to meet you and return.”

As the voice dropped, the Yuan Ying members of the other three sects, bent over and cupped their fists in salute in a sincere manner, not even the slightest bit of falsehood could be seen.

Isolated due to the activation of the nationwide array, all fire beasts were roaring, and hitting the enclosing red mist. Each hit caused the red mist to shake a bit but, no matter how many times they hit it, none was able to break through.

After having temporarily blocked the fire beasts from pursuing, the cultivator army sped up. The sword lights like bursts of raining stars broke through the Xuan Wu Country’s border wave after wave.

On the other side of Xuan Wu Country’s border, there was a mortal army. These mortals gawked at the sky. Seeing the densely packed sword lights flying without making a single sound, they threw down their weapons, went down on their knees and bowed. The large mortal army knelt down and prostrated.

In this army, there was a middle-aged man wearing a blue robe. As he stared at the sky, he became pale and murmured: “These……These are the cultivators of Huo Fen Country…….”

Sucking in a huge breath, his face became pale and he quickly retreated. But at this time several “jie jie” sounds of laughter erupted from the sky, and several XieMo Sect cultivators flew out with their sword lights. Three sword lights flashing several times, penetrated the middle-aged cultivator’s body at different angles.

The middle-aged cultivator’s body was soon cut into several pieces as blood splattered everywhere.

The mortal army immediately dispersed, and even the generals of the army fled out of fear of getting involved.

Over ten thousand sword lights had broken through into Xuan Wu Country in an instant. Stopping before a mountain covered in fog, an old man bearing a cold demeanour, flashed to the front. Moving his right hands fiercely, he struck with his palms towards the mountain.

A trace of gold light rose up from the mountains and formed a semi-circular light screen, stopping the palm.

Within the screen, several hundreds of cultivators looked up at the sky flustered, as one white-haired old woman flew out and asked in a harsh voice: “Daoyou from Huo Fen Country, what is the meaning of this?”

Yang Sen of War Shrine shook his body slightly and appeared in front of the screen. With a dull look on his face, he reached out his right hand. The light screen was unable to withstand and made a creaking sound as it immediately shattered into pieces, dispersing in an instant.

The old woman’s pupils shrank as she turned to retreat without hesitation. With a flash, she had already escaped about ten miles, but suddenly the clouds in the sky in front of her coagulated into a silhouette of Yang Sen. Looking coldly at the old woman, he waved his hand silently. The old woman immediately patted her forehead, and her YuanYing body flew out.

Just as the YuanYing emerged, her original body immediately exploded into pieces.

The old woman was frightened. Her cultivation was only in the early YuanYing stage. Seeing the other person’s strength, it was clear that he was at least in the middle YuanYing stage. In all of Xuan Wu Country, there were no more than three individuals who had achieved this level of cultivation. She did not have any thoughts of trying to resist and only wanted to escape this disaster.

“You cannot escape!” Yang Sen snorted lightly and chased after her.

Aside from Yang Sen, after the mountain light screen was broken, Huo Fen Country’s cultivators worked to establish a base. The JieDan stage cultivators rushed headlong into action. They were told to kill everyone on sight, and that in a short period, rivers of blood must flow from the mountain as no one should be left alive.

The big mountain peak at this time was fully occupied by the four major sects. Thousands of disciples stood densely on the mountain. The eighteen YuanYing cultivators, apart from Yang Sen, floated above their heads.

The War Shrine cultivator surnamed Song spoke up at this time with his eyes flashing. With a voice full of killing intent, he said with a sinking voice: “There is no right or wrong in this war, if we can’t find a base within three months in Xuan Wu Country, we will only be setting ourselves up for waiting until the fire beasts break out of Huo Fen Country. The Fire beasts are not scary, the scary thing is that there would be no LingQi available for cultivation.

War Shrine, XieMo Sect, Luo He Sect, Corpse Yin Sect, from this moment on, we must band together. We shall be collectively referred to as Huo Fen Alliance. Every disciple within the alliance, will receive a JieDan level treasure if at the Foundation building stage, and will receive a YuanYing level spell if at the JieDan stage.

During this war, all things looted from killing will belong to that individual. The alliance won’t take them. Disciples, this is a war, but I hope you will regard this as an invasion, one done in order to survive.”

Luo He Sect’s YuanYing cultivator coughed dryly a few times and spoke: “In addition to the magic weapons, each one of you will be receiving a Jade talisman, with which you can record the number of enemies killed. Killing 100 people at Concentrating Qi stage Fifth layer or higher, or 10 people at Foundation Building stage will be rewarded with ten Ling Shi. Killing 200 people at Concentrating Qi stage Fifth layer or higher, or 20 people at Foundation Building stage or one at JieDan stage, will be rewarded with ten bottles of Spiritual Pills.”

[TLNote: Let the bodies hit the floor, let the bodies hit the floor, let the bodies hit the flooooooooooooor]

      • osealey June 6, 2015 / 1:13 am

        Haha you’re damn right there. It is all a big set up this entire novel Xian Ni lol
        Nah man, I like the novel but at times the info dump is a bit much. I will say he will be the cause of about 20 people deaths in coming chapter which deal specifically with this.

    This should be interesting if we can see Wang Lin get the highest record killing everyone with a thought and arouse the suspicion of everyone

    Patience pays off,Finalllllllllllyyyyyyyyyyyy!

  8. morph June 5, 2015 / 10:35 pm

    nice 🙂 a war for Wang lin ❤

  9. jacobpaige June 5, 2015 / 10:36 pm

    Wow, they didn’t even try to find a reasonable solution. The fact that they don’t even intend to stay more than a few months should mean that a peaceful solution is possible as long as both sides are willing to consider one.

    I wonder what kind of ridiculous kill count the MC will rack up?

    • Aws June 5, 2015 / 10:44 pm

      I don’t think that they are against reasonable solution just..It was mentioned before few times that there is not enough linqi for that many people and if things like those happen, superior county will most likely wont help them. Even worse they would destroy them to keep the balance.

      • jacobpaige June 5, 2015 / 11:46 pm

        Didn’t it say in this chapter that they plan to ask a higher ranked country for help in exterminating the fire beasts so that they can go back to their own country?

      • random June 6, 2015 / 12:11 pm

        No. I think what they mean is they will bring back the Yuan Ying that was in the rings. They are using this 3 months to make a base at Xuan Wu country. So after that they revive those Yuan Ying and release the seal.

    • Specter June 5, 2015 / 11:06 pm

      Kill count…and draw suspicion unto himself, nah i think it’s not the quantity but the quality of people he’s going to kill that will be impressive.

      • Deadaluis June 5, 2015 / 11:51 pm

        Remember Wang Lin has that Aspect of his soul that lets him basically say Die and depending on the person they die as well as having a little pet for that matter.

    oh he will kill a lot in this war XD , but damn that was cruel they are like hi we will be here for a few months do you mind if we kill all of you while we are here.

  14. Archit Goel June 5, 2015 / 11:14 pm

    Thanks for the translation.

    On the story front, frankly can anyone tell me if the conduct of MC and the Alliance is different then villains? They embody the worst qualities of humanity.

    Though I love wuxia and action, I am really getting disillusioned by such stories where MC and others kill at first possible reason, without any kind of cooperation.

    Does China really has different human values then rest of the world?

    • blazingkyogre June 5, 2015 / 11:24 pm

      Path to immortality tend to screw up with your head maybe.

    • Deadaluis June 5, 2015 / 11:54 pm

      It is a Dog eats Dog world, but what they are doing is more or less right in their own mind if a natural catastrophe happens and you have to leave to survive would you not do it. Also they do not wish to stay long, and normally these sect’s do not like to work together, so if this does not say how bad this event is and how much of a last ditch effort I say this is not bad or good.

    • Regentas June 6, 2015 / 1:52 am

      China was almost a constant battlefield for the past 6k or more years. The amount of people that died in the spring and autumn period and the warring kingdoms era was huge. On the level of ww1 and ww2. 500 of nonstop bloodshed between fellow country men. No other country can compare to that. And the martial artist community in China was indeed quite vicious. To modern day person this is too much but if you truly read the novel you could understand that peaceful solutions are extremely rare. In a world where you can refine bodies and souls of those you kill to increase your power and even lifespan is quite a valid reason. Even now in our civilized world if such opportunity presented itself It is quite likely that quite a few people would take it and start killing. What is more. Most cultivators ignore normal ppl so they generally kill each other only. This concept is actually in almost all martial arts wuxia novels or at the very least some parts of it.

      As to the peaceful solutions to this invasion if you read it. 1) Linqi is limited and the amount of cultivators coming to this country is too much for it to handle. 2) That will cause great destruction to both cultivators and normal people. At worst even the destruction of the entire country. Even the sects in the same country kill each other from time to time to lower the number of cultivators and sects if they exceed some number. 3) The help from higher ranked xuzhen countries will take time to come and even then it might not be the response they wanted. They could just ignore them or not want to help them. 4) Linqi is like water and air to cultivators if they lose it, it is worse than death. So they will fight with all their might to have it. 5) At least 2 sects from the 4 are devil sects, and that means they follow the evil way and are probably really glad at any opportunity to kill someone. So that pushed the peaceful solution even further. 6) Even if they wanted to resolve this peacefully, truth be said, most likely the other countries cultivators wouldn’t agree since if they let them stay they would suffer so they will also fight till death.

    • EtherealToxin June 6, 2015 / 8:16 pm

      I think it is you who live in a sheltered box, unaware of what the world is actually like, than to say such behaviour is villainous or that “China” is weird.
      “Currently”, from an “at home” POV, much of the so called “civilized world” is relatively “peaceful”, but only in a sheltered context, if one does not pay attention to crime, war, history, farming, frontier development, and politics, from their actual root implications and issues.

      If you cannot understand a situation directly, then try stepping outside the box and looking at it objectively, or putting yourself in their shoes(, completely, from an adoption from birth into their life). All people are just like you, except all people have different experiences which bring them to their self-identity conclusion. “Villains” and “Heroes”, technically, are relative points of view, and, technically, are unfair incorrect horrible labels which conclude [something] which is extremely grey is either ‘black or white’ and then go on to make secondary baseless conclusions about said [something] claiming “since it is ‘white’ is must therefore be: [unfair incorrect horrible label]”; and then when one discovers that it does not match to one’s own personal conclusion of said [unfair incorrect horrible label] one then tends to conclude that the [something] must therefore be the ‘other’ opposite label, and working with opposites there are only 2 options. Which is very common in society, but only goes to show one’s shallow sheltered immaturity towards the actual nature of reality.

  15. ZaX June 5, 2015 / 11:19 pm

    This is war! Wang Lin is gonna take advantage of this situation so well
    Thanks!

  16. merc June 5, 2015 / 11:32 pm

    China’s got over 1 billion people. They can’t help but treat people as just numbers. Their entire history is ‘strength or death’.

    • Deadaluis June 5, 2015 / 11:57 pm

      True True. I don’t think either of us are meaning to offend any one who is Chinese.

    • sky June 6, 2015 / 1:37 am

      I’am not even chinese and I can already see the ignorance in yours and that arch guy’s post.’str or death’ what part of history is that?Care to quote some examples as you seem to know everything about chinese history,or don’t quote wiki that shit is flawed.

      Also hiltler,Josef Stalin and Leopold II of Belgium,to name a few,saids hi.Dumb donkey if your going to make a ignorant statement at least have some facts and not just base it on a wuxia novel,thanks.Also history has always been cruel with men from power abusing it,its not a chinese thing but a world wide thing.

  18. Carl June 5, 2015 / 11:41 pm

    Now that Wang Lin is out of that place, plus is completely attached to his new body, I hope he just goes and trains at least until he’s at the JieDan stage.. for him to be so strong he’s still so weak lol.

    I know during this war he could let the devil go ‘all out’ by eating souls (which then he could absorb into himself) but that seems completely villainous. I’m not someone who thinks all protagonists must be heroes, but it’s sucky to see a good person (which he was) become a evil person and commit a genocide for power which he could attain without doing it.

    • Regentas June 6, 2015 / 1:56 am

      Wang Lin truthfully said has stepped fully on the path of devil sect. So he is evil. As to him training although this is a bit of spoiler ish….

      He wont stay long in this country and run away 🙂 since well, the fire pups got real hard on for him but well they will meet an obstacle which even they can’t overcome. He will kidnap/save someone to make him his warp dust. And hide and train in a cold land.

    • EaterOfNovels June 6, 2015 / 2:16 am

      For me its the best feeling when you see your naive protagonist grow up to be ruthless 🙂

      • Virgil220 June 6, 2015 / 3:09 am

        I’m betting you get picked on a lot at school 😛

    • Virgil220 June 6, 2015 / 3:15 am

      I agree with you, I like anti-heroes not assholes…

      Unfortunately, it could be a while before Wang Lin “levels up” to JieDan stage if only to keep threats credible; since the author has given him the power to instantly kill anyone at the same stage as him, any threat has to be a stage higher than he is

  19. will i am June 6, 2015 / 12:21 am

    They were told to kill everyone on sight, and that in a short period, rivers of blood must flow from the mountain as no one should be left alive. >> They want to share the Jade talisman to record the number of enemies killed after this? If there’s no one left alive then the jade for?

    • EtherealToxin June 6, 2015 / 7:57 pm

      That was just a mountain top, and with it is just a small fort, but a proper foothold would mean to conquer as much as possible in that nation, probably, or at the very least: the rest of that one territory. 1 fort does not necessarily = fort’s entire holdings.

    It’s supposed to be “as he caught”

    Just by looking at the massive amounts of text when scrolling down the page, I can imagine how much time and effort it takes to translate and edit so a big thanks to all of you guys for your work.

    I am sad that the releases have slowed after but I am really grateful that you still plan to persevere with the novel (even if you have to take breaks). I could not put that amount of work you do into this; I am bad enough at revising for my exams which is just covering stuff I know, let alone doing something completely different every day. Thanks again and keep up the good work please (else I am likely to cry from boredom with no chapters to read).

    Super High Good Luck to your Health
    Super High Good Luck to your Situations

    I wonder if Wang Lin will even bother to assist or not, I kind of suspect that he won’t and merely hide and cultivate, even though he has the potential of producing the highest body count with 1-shot-words, the giving a shit in this situation does not seem to be in his character unless he actually planned on staying there
