98 A Thousand Years of Life-Span
“Senior brother, aren’t you going to help us take revenge for our original sect leader?”
“That’s the Yan family’s business. Apart from that, Senior Brother Yan’s earlier negligence allowed the devil’s realm to successfully manifest in the Nine Desolations. If they don’t resolve this matter, even if they remove me from the position of the sect leader, their family won’t be able to take the position.”
With that, Fang Jinyu placed his last stone.
Instantly, a large number of white chess pieces on the spirit chessboard were cleared out. On the black chess pieces, the shadow of a dragon appeared, roaring toward the sky.
Fang Jinyu laughed and said, “The Black Dragon’s strangulation has determined the outcome.”
“It’s not fun!”
Xin Qianqian immediately acted shamelessly. Afterward, a ray of light flew down from her slender waist.
It was a spirit sword.
Xin Qianqian stepped on her embroidered shoes and flew away on her sword.
When Xin Qianqian saw that Fang Jinyu liked to fly on his sword, Xin Qianqian followed suit and got herself a spirit sword, but it was only a middle-grade spirit tool.
Fang Jinyu shouted. “Do you still want to play next time?”
“I’m not playing anymore!”
Fang Jinyu shouted, “Really?”
Xin Qianqian expressed her firm attitude and said, “I’ll be a dog if I play it again!”
Fang Jinyu secretly recorded Xin Qianqian’s words with his Discipline Pearl. Afterward, he raised his hand and grabbed it.
Instantly, an invisible force appeared.
A few thousand feet away, a thunder-attribute frog with a lightning mark on its head jumped out of a hole and fell into Fang Jinyu’s hands.
The thunder-attribute frog struggled and tried to escape from Fang Jinyu’s grasp.
Fang Jinyu didn’t say anything. He simply raised his hand and cast a spell. Afterward, he fed the thunder-attribute frog an elixir and threw it back.
Fang Jinyu was refining the thunder-attribute frog.
It was the raw-refining technique.
It was a secret technique that Fang Jinyu had obtained from the Nascent Soul stage Grandmaster after he had become the sect leader.
The technique made Fang Jinyu able to completely control a spirit beast.
Of course, if Fang Jinyu only wanted to control a spirit beast, he could use an easier method. However, the secret technique was powerful because he could borrow one-third of the lifespan from the spirit beast when he didn’t have enough of them in the future!
It was also the reason why the Tianling Sect Leader could break through the Core Formation stage even if his cultivation was delayed by dealing with worldly affairs.
Fang Jinyu had originally wanted to look for his “big brother” and ask for a descendant of its bloodline. It was because the spirit beasts that had awakened the ancient authentic spirit Dangkang pig bloodline had long lifespans. Even if they hadn’t broken through the Core Formation stage, they would live longer than Core Formation stage cultivators.
To his surprise, after borrowing a superior-grade spirit tool that could “estimate” his remaining lifespan, Fang Jinyu discovered that the “King-tier thunder-attribute frog” in his possession had a lifespan of 3000 years!
At that time, Fang Jinyu had almost thought that there was a problem with the spirit tool.
Fang Jinyu glanced at the thunder-attribute frog that had run far away and started thinking again.”Don’t tell me that this thunder-attribute frog is a cub of an authentic spirit… It’s not, right?”
“However, according to the description in the book, there are no authentic spirits in the Nine Desolations. It is because the heavens and earth didn’t allow it to happen, even the offspring of an authentic spirit is not allowed. Moreover, it’s not just the Nine Desolations. The immortal cultivation continent that is about to appear is also the same.”
Fang Jinyu frowned.
Fang Jinyu remembered that the book mentioned that there was a pure-blooded Qilin cub on the immortal cultivation continent! It was hidden in a secret realm, and even several Nascent Soul stage cultivators working together couldn’t do anything to it. However, after the Qilin cub came out of the secret realm, it immediately died without even having the time to struggle or react.
In other words, if the “King-tier thunder-attribute frog” was a cub of the authentic spirit, it should have lost its life force after being brought out of the secret realm.
“Speaking of which, many parts in the book don’t match up with reality now.”
Meanwhile, two streams of light flew over, but they were blocked outside the great array of Mount Xiaohe.
With a wave of his hand, Fang Jinyu allowed the two streaks of light to enter.
“Greetings, Sect Leader Fang!”
The two cultivators who had arrived were early-stage Foundation Establishment cultivators. After they bowed, they put down the things in their hands and said, “All the information regarding the Liudao Sect and Utopia Immortal City is here.”
Fang Jinyu said, “Thank you so much, junior brothers. I appreciate your hard work.”
Afterward, the two Foundation Establishment stage cultivators left.
Fang Jinyu flipped through the two piles of neatly arranged bamboo slips. Each slip was around one foot thick.
After becoming the sect leader, Fang Jinyu naturally had the authority to openly inquire about the Liudao Sect. As for Utopia Immortal City, since there had been a lot of rumors, Fang Jinyu had simply asked about it.
As the information was jumbled up and it was hard to tell if it was real or fake, it took the two Foundation Establishment stage cultivators half a month to complete the mission given by Fang Jinyu.
Since Fang Jinyu ranked 9 in the Foundation Establishment stage, his divine senses were powerful. Hence, he was naturally able to read through the slips very quickly.
Soon, Fang Jinyu had finished reading the information about the “Liudao Sect.” Although there had been many unexpected incidents, the general content was the same as what Fang Jinyu had remembered.
It was within his expectations.
After all, the Liudao Sect itself had countless problems, and it had been fine all this time thanks to the three Nascent Soul stage Grandmasters! However, once the news of the disappearance of the three Liudao Sect’s Nascent Soul stage Grandmasters was confirmed, the questions that had been suppressed for countless years instantly became a fuse that directly burned one of the six great sects.
From then on, there were only five great sects in the Nine Desolations.
Although there were a few immortal sects that were similar to the Liudao Sect in terms of strength, because these few sects were on par with each other, it was very difficult for one of them to be among the six great sects.
Fang Jinyu continued to read.
“A Nascent Soul stage cultivator died near the Utopia Immortal City?”
“It was confirmed that he was the Qi family’s Grandmaster, and another Core Formation stage cultivator of the Qi family died with him?”
“Qi Mo and his elder brother fell out? The city is in chaos?”
Fang Jinyu couldn’t hide the shock in his eyes. It wasn’t because of what had happened in the Utopia Immortal City, but because Xin Qianqian’s grandmother had mentioned that only Incarnation stage cultivators could kill Nascent Soul stage cultivators!
Or those who had understood the wonder of the Incarnation stage and were half a step away from the Nascent Soul stage!
“Could it be that the people from the upper realm have descended?”
At this moment, Fang Jinyu felt a strong sense of urgency. He thought, “I have to form my core now!”
Fang Jinyu felt he had to become a Core Formation stage cultivator as soon as possible!
Otherwise, Fang Jinyu could only cultivate until the Nascent Soul stage.
The immortal seed was of utmost importance!
Now, the Nine Desolations were generous and could be so generous as to let every Core Formation stage cultivator have one immortal seed. However, once the upper realm’s harvest was over, the Nine Desolations would probably be petty. It might not even give new Core Formation stage cultivators an immortal seed any more!
However, since Fang Jinyu wasn’t the protagonist and he couldn’t guarantee that he could form a grade 1 core, he had to be extra cautious in the matter!
“If I have a lightning-attribute Tianling spiritual root, I’ll definitely be able to form a grade 1 core.”
“However, I don’t have enough luck right now. If I only rely on luck, I won’t be able to complete the transformation of my spiritual root. As for the magic treasure that’s only half-nurtured, it’s not time for it to be born yet!”
With this in mind, Fang Jinyu showed a determined gaze.
“It’s time to use the Sword Will Grass…”
Fang Jinyu waved his hand, and the spirit herb he had purchased from the Utopia Immortal City appeared in his grasp.
The Sword Will Grass was only a few years old, and its spirituality was severely lacking.
However, Fang Jinyu’s alchemy skills were enough for him to refine the Sword Spirit Elixir.
“Is it because I’m not a sword cultivator that causes me to fail to obtain the luck on that broken sword…” Fang Jinyu thought of it when he found the Sword Will Grass in the Utopia Immortal City. After all, if the broken sword had belonged to Ximen Jianyi, it couldn’t fuse with his body!
Therefore, the problem was very likely to be this.
Initially, Fang Jinyu didn’t want to take the risk. He had planned to wait until he broke through the Core Formation stage before considering obtaining the luck of the broken sword. However, he couldn’t wait any longer.
