Chapter 1435: Acquaintances of the Past
Jian Chen returned to the Tian Yuan Continent and descended in the Changyang clan of Lore City. The Changyang clan announced something that shook up the entire continent, causing a great commotion everywhere.
All Sixth Cycle Heaven Saint Masters would experience the chance to become a Saint Ruler if they gathered outside Lore City in three day's time.
All Saint Rulers who had comprehended Saint Tier Battle Skills or were at the Seventh Heavenly Layer or above would have the chance to become a Saint King if they gathered outside Lore City in three day's time.
All Saint Kings at the Eighth Heavenly Layer or above would have the chance of becoming a Saint Emperor if they gathered outside Lore City in three day's time.
These three pieces of information spread across the entire continent like wildfire soon after the Changyang clan announced them. All the hermit and ancient clans who had isolated themselves from the world received the news. Even the mysterious experts who remained hidden within the wilderness all year round to cultivate received the news from their friends as well. They were all astounded and could not calm down even after a very long time.
The current world lacked origin energy, making it impossible for Saint Emperors to reach the Origin realm and extremely difficult for Saint Kings to reach Saint Emperor. There were countless experts who had devoted their lives to cultivation only to stop at Saint King. On the continent, Saint Emperors had almost stopped appearing entirely. Only the path lord of carnal desires managed to become a Saint Emperor through the creation of his seven emotions and six desires, becoming the only supreme expert for quite some time.
In the eyes of all the Saint Kings on the Tian Yuan Continent, the path to Saint Emperor had fallen apart long ago. Even those who had reached Great Perfection and were only an inch away from Saint Emperor could not avoid the miserable ending of being reduced to a pile of bones.
Yet now, the Changyang clan of Lore City had claimed that they would give Saint Kings a chance to become Saint Emperors. This matter immediately exploded among the Saint Kings, throwing countless people into an uproar.
No one doubted the abilities of the Changyang clan because they were the clan the human sovereign Jian Chen belonged to. Several months ago, a few new Saint Emperors appeared on the Tian Yuan Continent, and they all possessed close ties to Jian Chen. Everyone knew that the reason why these people could skyrocket in strength and all become Saint Emperors was all because of Jian Chen's assistance.
Some Saint Kings who fulfilled the requirements even ripped open Space Gates to hurry to the Changyang clan the moment they received the news. A few Saint Rulers and Heaven Saint Masters who fulfilled the requirements did not hesitate either. They all ventured to the cities, sects, or clans with Space Gates as soon as they heard the news and paid a large price so that they could make it to Lore City in the shortest amount of time possible.
The moment the news spread from the Changyang clan, two Saint Kings in the clan ripped open Space Gates and left excitedly. They went to the sea realm and the Beast God Continent respectively.
One of the Saint Kings was a magical beast while the other one was a member of the Sea race. They had remained on the Tian Yuan Continent to keep guard and had been summoned by Jian Chen. He got them to take a similar announcement with them.
The two experts reported the news to Yadriam and Cangqiong, greatly shocking the two Saint Emperors. They immediately broadcasted this news across the entire sea realm and Beast God Continent as well.
The sea realm and Beast God Continent were thrown into an uproar as well. The Saint Kings who fulfilled the requirements all surged with emotion. They could not remain where they were for a single moment longer, eagerly heading to the Tian Yuan Continent.
Not only did Jian Chen want to increase the overall strength of the humans on the Tian Yuan Continent, but he had also invited the Sea race and magical beasts to take part in this event as well.
In just the first day since he had let out the news, over ten thousand people had gathered outside Lore City. All of them looked toward the small city in reverence.
All these people had hurried over on the first day. Most of them were Heaven Saint Masters, with Saint Rulers making up an extremely small portion. There were even many Heaven Saint Masters and Saint Rulers who did not match the requirements present. They had come with the mindset to watch or to try their luck, hoping that they would be chosen if Jian Chen decided to make exceptions.
All of them stood on the ground, including the Saint Rulers. No one dared to hover in the sky, and even when they communicated with one another, they purposefully stifled their voices. They did not cause a great disturbance, as if the city before them was holy. Even the Saint Rulers did not step into the city, staying outside in the wilderness.
The Changyang clan was currently filled with the Saint Kings of the three races. However, without any exceptions, all the Saint Kings had lowered their statuses and acted extremely modestly. There was a vague sense of reverence present. They did not even dare to offend a single servant of the clan.
A palace-like hall stood within the Changyang clan. It was grand and the most eye-catching piece of infrastructure in the clan.
This hall was the place where Jian Chen stayed in the clan.
Jian Chen always remained in there as he tidied the heavenly resources on him. He did not visit anyone. There were many Saint Kings who had wanted to see him to pay their respects, but they were all denied entry. His hall became a holy place in the eyes of all the Saint Kings.
There were many Saint Kings who believed that all the people who managed to enter the hall would receive infinite glory.
At this moment, a small group of Saint Kings courteously arrived before the hall where Jian Chen stayed. One of them said to the two female servants at the entrance, "Tai Dou wishes to see ruler Jian Chen." After that, the entire group bowed to the hall. They all bore the respect they felt from the bottom of their hearts on their faces.
A few Saint Kings in the surroundings secretly shook their heads when they saw their actions. They could already guess what would happen.
"Esteemed guests, the young master is not seeing anyone…" The two beautiful servants repeated something they had said countless times with smiles. Whenever they mentioned 'young master,' there was evident admiration and adoration in their voices. It was close to a fanatical level.
However, Jian Chen's voice rang out from inside as soon as the two servants finished speaking. The Saint Kings in the surroundings immediately froze when they heard his voice, suddenly turning their heads to the group of Saint Kings standing at the entrance. Envy filled their eyes as well as a certain strangeness. There had been countless Saint Kings who had wanted to see Jian Chen, including many Saint Kings at Great Perfection. Without a single exception, they were all turned down at the entrance, yet this group had succeeded.
The two servants at the entrance were stunned. Their opinions of this group of people immediately changed as well.
If it was before, they would have been utterly frightened if Saint Rulers stood before them, let alone Saint Kings. They would even worry about breathing too loudly, but on this day, the two of them had discovered that Saint Kings only amounted to so much.
The group of people entered the hall. As soon as they saw Jian Chen, who was sorting through the Violet Cloud Peaches and Comprehension Tea Leaves, they all dropped to their knees and said, "We greet the ruler!"
They were the Saint Kings from the Turtle clan as well as Tai Dou, who had initially pledged his loyalty to Jian Chen.
Jian Chen glanced over them and gently sighed, "You already know that I'm not the ruler of the Turtle clan, so why must you kneel for me? Please get up."Chapter Notes:
