As early as after the Lord of the Heavenly Court reinstated the Paragon of the Plague Sect, Lu Qingzhu, a rumor spread among the high-level experts.
It was said that the Lord of the Heavenly Court had sensed that a great calamity was about to arrive.
The reason why he reinstated the Paragon of the Plague Sect and buried her with great fanfare was because he had personally arranged for the tomb to be placed there for some reason.
After the Outer World invaded and the Lord of the Heavenly Court was jointly sealed by the Nine Heavens of the Outer World, this rumor was believed by even more people.
However, after the Paragon of the Plague Sect was buried, the tomb seemed to have disappeared.
No one could explore it anymore.
In the subsequent hundreds of thousands of years, there was no news of the Lord of the Heavenly Court escaping, so this rumor gradually faded.
Now, the tomb of the Paragon of the Plague Sect had suddenly appeared.
Even Lu Qingzhu herself had appeared.
This reminded the ancient experts of that rumor.
Perhaps this was the effect of the Lord of the Heavenly Courts backup plan.
Did this mean that the Lord of the Heavenly Court had already secretly escaped the seal
This was very likely.
After all, it was said that the Lord of the Heavenly Court was an expert who stood at the Peak of the 12 Heaven Gate realms.
His usage of the Heaven Gate characteristics had already reached the peak and was far from what anyone who had yet to reach that realm could compare to.
Back then, the reason why the Nine Heavens could seal the Lord of the Heavenly Court was not only because of a sudden attack, but also because of the help of another strange power.
It was not strange for a peak expert like the Lord of the Heavenly Court to escape after his backup plan came into effect.
“Do you think the peerless expert who created this jade is the Lord of the Heavenly Court himself” a middle-aged man suddenly asked.
He was the Valley Master of the Immortal Valley, Qin Tang.
His cultivation was at the Eighth Heaven Gate realm, and he could be said to be an outstanding figure among this group of Sect Masters.
This guess stunned everyone, even Lian Heng himself.
It seemed very likely!
Since the Lord of the Heavenly Court might have already escaped and another expert with strength that exceeded everyones imagination had appeared, this expert could still easily restrain the Plague Paragon, Lu Qingzhu.
This was indeed very likely the Lord of the Heavenly Court himself!
“Brother Qin is right.” Lian Heng nodded and said in a low voice, “Its indeed possible.
The power in this jade is too powerful.
Im afraid only the Lord of the Heavenly Court can reach this level.
However, since that peerless expert did not take the initiative to reveal his identity, we cant guess too much.
When we go and visit later, we could just express our respect.
What do you think”
“I agree.” Qin Tang nodded, and the others nodded in agreement.
Then, after some discussion, they quickly decided to go to the capital of the Wood Nation to visit that peerless expert.
Of course, they had to prepare gifts to show their respect.
They could not dispense with the rituals.
The Scarlet Tribulation that swept through the entire Qinghua Domain continued unabated.
It did not stop just because Lu Qingzhu was captured by Cui Heng.
However, the intensity of the Scarlet Tribulation at this stage was relatively normal.
It only revived some strange living beings that had yet to reach the Heaven Gate realm or were only equivalent to the Fifth or Sixth Realm of the Immortal World.
This way, under the control of the Yellow Heaven Sect, the disaster brought about by this calamity was very limited, and the peoples panic was much less.
At the same time, this also caused more and more people to worship Divinity Yellow Heaven.
The disciples of the Yellow Heaven Sect began to grow explosively and even began to spread to the outside world.
When the number of believers reached a certain number, the Yellow-scarved Strongmans original Peak Nascent Soul cultivation suddenly broke through without warning.
However, he had not reached the Soul Formation realm.
Instead, it was somewhere in the middle of the two.
This state puzzled the Yellow-scarved Strongman.
He could not comprehend it himself, so he could only come to Cui Heng to seek answers.
“Youve already deviated from your normal cultivation path.” Cui Heng checked the Yellow-scarved Strongmans condition and realized that the Nascent Soul in his body had already disappeared and transformed into a golden divine power.
While retaining the characteristics of his Nascent Soul, this divine power had also increased his strength sufficiently.
Moreover, it had already surpassed the Sixth Heaven Gate realm and might be equivalent to the Seventh or Eighth Heaven Gate realm.
However, this golden divine power also had some flaws.
It contained an extremely huge amount of the will of all living beings.
It was originally not as pure as the power he had cultivated.
Clearly, this was a power from faith.
With the Yellow-scarved Strongmans cultivation realm, he could naturally easily suppress the will of all living beings contained in his divine power.
However, as the number of incense offerings increased and his divine power increased, he would inevitably be affected by the will of all living beings.
“Master Immortal, what should I do now” the Yellow-scarved Strongman asked.
“I keep feeling that if this continues, I might become another form of living being over time.”
“Mn.” Cui Heng nodded slightly and said in a low voice, “When the power of incense and faith is strong enough, you will transform into a kind of god that the will of all living beings desires, and not a cultivator with an independent will.
However, you dont have to worry.
Ill cast a spell on you later to isolate this power of incense and faith from your cultivation.
This power will only be used by you as a tool and wont directly affect your cultivation.”
“Thank you, Master Immortal!” The Yellow-scarved Strongman heaved a sigh of relief.
The recent changes had really made him panic.
Now, he could finally feel at ease.
“From this, we can also tell one of the Dao Gods goals,” Cui Heng said thoughtfully.
“If Mingcheng really established a sect that respected the Dao God…
Then as time passed, a Dao God condensed from the will of all living beings would appear in the Heaven Realm.
In a sense, this can be somewhat similar to a clone of the Dao Gods main body
What is he trying to do through the connection between the clone and the main body What can he do with this connection between the two worlds Whats his goal”
Thinking of this, Cui Heng said to the Yellow-scarved Strongman, “After this Scarlet Calamity ends, Ill temporarily strip the divine power from your body.
Its not just a simple segregation, but Ill let it leave your body and exist independently.
Then, this divine power will form a separate spirit, becoming an independent god.
It can be counted as your divine soul.
Then, Ill send you to the Lower World.
Try to sense the soul fragment of this god in the Heaven Realm and test what you can do with it.”
“Yes, Master Immortal!” The Yellow-scarved Strongman nodded and said, “Thank you, Master Immortal.”
“Haha, this is also an experiment for me.” Cui Heng chuckled and looked outside.
“Some guests have arrived.
Go and welcome them.”
In the capital of the Wood Nation, more than ten strangers with extraordinary auras had arrived.
The auras on these people were filled with an ancient charm, giving off an extremely powerful feeling.
No one dared to stop them at all.
They could only quietly watch as they arrived at Cui Hengs palace.
They were the Sect Masters from the Eternal Academy, Immortal Valley, and other Immortal orthodoxies.
Lian Heng and Qin Tang stood at the front.
Clearly, they had led the team here.
Just as these people were about to bow and pay their respects, the door of the palace suddenly opened by itself.
A burly man with dark golden skin walked out.
This burly man was extremely huge, but he gave off a very gentle feeling.
Moreover, he had a holy aura, like a god sitting on a shrine and not a person walking the world.
“Everyone, please follow me.” The Yellow-scarved Strongmans gaze swept across everyone and he smiled.
“Master Immortal is already waiting inside.”
With that, he turned around and led the way.
He was completely like a servant.
At this moment, Lian Heng, Qin Tang, and the others suddenly woke up.
They realized that they could not see through this burly mans cultivation realm.
What did this mean!
