Chapter 1751: A Godking's Corpse
This time, no one doubted master Chanlong because the handprints on the stone door were clear evidence that people had already entered the place.
The traps Godking Duanmu had set around probably only had a single attack. The first hut was the best example.
The remaining Overgods all entered the second hut. There was also a miniature world within the second hut. Moreover, Godking Duanmu's Laws of Space had modified it, so it was much larger than the first hut.
Mountains obscured the space, and there was a range of mountains that spanned as far as the eye could see. Sharp sword Qi radiated from the mountains with a sense of supremacy. They were extremely powerful.
There were a few mirror-like rock faces among the endless stretch of mountains. A few slashes were left on the rock faces, which were the source of the sword Qi that permeated the surroundings. The sharp intent made all the Overgods shiver.
A few Gods were scattered before the rock face with the slashes. All their gazes were fixated on it; they wanted to comprehend the Laws of the Sword within.
With a boom, a few Gods slashed at the mountains up ahead. They wanted to take the slashes on the rock face away with them. However, the mountains had already changed from being soaked in the sword Qi for so long. They had become extraordinarily tough, so the full-powered attacks of the Gods only left a mark on its surface. Severing the entire mountain and taking it away was basically impossible.
"This should be where Godking Duanmu comprehended the sword," said Ling Hougong. His gaze was filled with joy. To him, this place was basically a supreme, treasured land.
This was because he comprehended the Laws of the Sword. If he continued his comprehension here, it would definitely become much easier for him.
A gleam of light flickered through Jian Chen's eyes as he too became excited. The sword slashes possessed the residue of what Godking Duanmu had comprehended from the Laws of the Sword. To him, they would be just too helpful. They could assist him in comprehending the Laws of the Sword and reach the partial achievement of Sword Spirit in an even shorter amount of time.
The Overgods left very quickly. They had already understood this place. It was only where Godking Duanmu comprehended the Laws of the Sword. It was not beneficial to them, nor were there any treasures, so it naturally did not attract them.
In the blink of an eye, all the Overgods aside from Jian Chen and Ling Hougong had left.
"Jian Chen, we both comprehend the Laws of the Sword, so this place is basically a blessed land to the two of us. Why don't we cultivate here for a while?" Ling Hougong asked. He wanted to stay behind.
"Jian Chen, leave here immediately. Go to the third hut. If I've guessed correctly, the third hut contains what I need," at this moment, fairy Hao Yue's voice rang out in Jian Chen's head.
Jian Chen clasped his fist towards Ling Hougong without any change in expression at all and said, "There's still one more hut left. I want to try my luck there for any impressive treasures and see what I can get."
Ling Hougong clasped his fist back at Jian Chen and said, "I won't be going to the third hut. I want to cultivate here for a while in hopes that my comprehension of the Laws of the Sword will increase. Jian Chen, I wish you luck!"
Jian Chen left after bidding farewell to Ling Hougong. He looked towards the third stone hut.
The ground outside the third hut was covered with corpses of Gods. All of them were missing body parts, having suffered miserable deaths. Jian Chen casually glanced past the corpses, and his eyes suddenly narrowed. His gaze fell onto one of their faces.
He just so happened to recognise the deceased God. He was one of the mid Gods from the Wayner clan who had hurried over when he, Mo Ling, and Ando Fu had opened the entrance to the dwelling. Close to him was a second person that Jian Chen recognised. He was the second mid God from the Wayner clan.
"I never thought that the two mid Gods of the Wayner clan would both die here," Jian Chen sighed secretly as he felt pity. Then he made his way over the many corpses and entered the third hut.
Compared to the two huts prior, the space within the third hut was much smaller. When Jian Chen entered, he discovered that all the Overgods had stopped there. Their gazes were all fixed ahead with mixed emotions.
Jian Chen followed their gazes, and his eyes narrowed suddenly as well. Afterwards, his face also became filled with mixed emotions. There was admiration as well as pity.
Before him sat a middle-aged man in green robes on a jade pedestal. His eyes were closed, and although he radiated with invisible sword Qi that was filled with the presence of supremacy, he did not have any presence of life at all.
"Godking Duanmu!" Jian Chen's feeling became extremely mixed when he saw the middle-aged man. He was a supreme expert who had made it onto the Godking's Throne. Although he did not make the rankings, his strength was still shocking. There were barely anyone at Godking who was his opponent. However, such a glorious expert had died in his own dwelling.
Besides that, it was thanks to the assistance of Godking Duanmu that his Way of the Sword could reach Sword Spirit. If it were not for the mark that Godking Duanmu had left in his disciple's dwelling to pass on his laws, it would not have been so easy for him to reach Sword Spirit.
"I never thought that the third stone hut would actually be where Godking Duanmu passed away," master Chanlong sighed gently as he stared at the lifeless Godking before him with mixed feelings. His voice was filled with pity.
"Godking Duanmu is extremely powerful. Probably only those who have been ranked on the Godking's Throne can defeat him, and it's only defeating him. Godking Duanmu has the Laws of Space, so if he wants to flee, he'll be even faster than the Laws of Wind. Killing him is almost impossible…"
"Godking Duanmu is so powerful, so I wonder who killed him? Was it a supreme expert from the top rankings of the Godking's Throne? Or was it a Primordial realm expert?"
"If it was a Primordial realm expert, Godking Duanmu would indeed struggle to escape…"
"What a pity, what a pity. If Godking Duanmu did not die, there was an extremely great chance of him reaching the Primordial realm and standing at the very top of the world, only beneath the heavens…"
A few Overgods sighed in amazement as their gazes towards Godking Duanmu were filled with admiration.
This was the admiration for someone powerful. Even though Godking Duanmu was already dead, the glory he had left behind still affected them.
"Hmm? There seems to be words beside Godking Duanmu," an Overgod said suddenly.
Everyone looked over; indeed, there were words carved on the ground.
"Since you are able to make it here, you are fated to make it here. You must swear to the world that after you obtain this king's legacy and become accomplished in cultivation that you personally slay Huai An, a vice leader of the Empyrean Demon Cult…"
The expressions of all the Overgods changed after they read these words. All of their faces had even become filled with fear when they saw the words 'Empyrean Demon Cult', and it was like they feared and dreaded the Empyrean Demon Cult dearly.
