The Great Northern Emperor turned to look at Song Shuhang, and asked, “Don’t you already have the inheritance of the ‘Divine Beast Department’?”
Song Shuhang replied, “The inheritance I got was from the Thirty-Three Divine Beasts’ Sect, which was established after the era of the ancient Heavenly City. However, there’s a part of the inheritance that is missing.”
It was best if he could quickly find the hidden inheritance of the Divine Beast Department. At that time, he could forge his ‘life-bound magical treasure’ before ascending to the Fifth Stage Realm… If he couldn’t find the complete inheritance, then he could only practice and make do with another suitable life-bound magical treasure.
…Additionally, he wanted to know if the hidden inheritance of the Divine Beast Department was really related to the [All the Monsters of the World Should Unite and Become a Family] organization.
He hoped that the Great Northern Emperor could clear up his doubts.
“When it comes to the inheritance of the Divine Beast Department, I did meet Slow-Witted Song after the end of the era of the ancient Heavenly City and heard him mention it.” The Great Northern Emperor thought a bit, and said, “At that time, when Slow-Witted Song and I were talking, he mentioned the Divine Beast Department. He said that he had successfully divided the inheritance of the Divine Beast Department into one that was in the light and another in the dark. He did not tell anyone of the hidden inheritance, saying that it was in a place that nobody could have thought of. Moreover, even if others did see the hidden inheritance, they were likely to never associate it with the ‘Divine Beast Department’.”
Speaking of this, the Great Emperor’s heart felt rather troubled.
Slow-Witted Song seemed to have faintly known about the impending doom of the Heavenly City before it had actually been destroyed, which was why he had secretly transferred the inheritance of the Divine Beast Department…
However, he had not told anyone about it, not even the Great Emperor.
In fact, when given some careful thought, Slow-Witted Song had always been mysterious and secretive. Other than that, he had also studied divinations together with others, so could it have been a divination?
Even if others see it, they were likely to never associate it with the ‘Divine Beast Department’?
Song Shuhang’s heart became cold.
He thought of the [All the Monsters of the World Should Unite and Become a Family] again—even if it were a disciple of the ‘Thirty-Three Divine Beasts’ Sect’ who came over and saw this strange monster alliance, wouldn’t they still be unable to connect it to their own sect?
It looks like I will have to quietly go and practice those ‘200 Must-have Skills for a Monster Spirit to Survive’ after I find the time. Perhaps I can really dig out the inheritance of the ❮Thirty-Three Divine Beasts’ Technique❯ and ‘treasure refinement technique’. Song Shuhang decided in his mind.
At the same time, he asked, “Senior, are there any other clues?”
The Great Northern Emperor shook his head, and said, “Not that I know of, I don’t know much about the inheritance of the Divine Beast Department.”
“So, Senior Beifang, for the Divine Beast Department’s life-bound magical treasure, would I really have to combine 33 suitable magical instruments into a single entity?” Song Shuhang continued to inquire.
The Great Northern Emperor looked at Song Shuhang, and asked, “Do you really want to go on this path?”
Song Shuhang continued, “Can they really be combined?”
The Great Northern Emperor replied, “Yes, but… the combining of the 33 beasts’ magical treasures is not like assembling building blocks, the process is much more difficult. You will only have a single chance to combine the magical instruments; if you fail, you won’t get another chance. Also, in a sense, this single combined magical treasure is equal to 33 life-bound magical treasures. The resources you will have to invest are quite difficult to imagine. Moreover, this combined magical treasure is different from other combined life-bound weapons. You will have to complete the entire process before reaching the Fifth Stage. Once you’ve already reached the Fifth Stage, you will no longer have the opportunity to combine the 33 magical treasures even if you do have them. In addition, even in the era of the ancient Heavenly City, when the materials were extremely abundant, there were only two great masters from the Divine Beast Department who were able to combine their magical treasures before reaching the Fifth Stage.”
All in all, this combined life-bound magical treasure could truly only be acquired by rich and extremely lucky practitioners.
Both resources and luck were indispensable.
Song Shuhang said, “I want to give it a try… If I really can’t do it, I’ll at least look for a suitable magical treasure for the ‘huge whale’ chapter and forge it. It’s just that in the Thirty-Three Divine Beasts’ Sect, the forging technique for the magical treasure of the huge whale system has actually been lost.”
“You can do it. I look quite highly upon you.” The Great Northern Emperor patted Song Shuhang’s shoulder.
With the unfortunate luck that Song Shuhang had, him wanting to refine 33 kinds of magical treasures made the Great Emperor feel rather worried!
The puppet maiden had been staring at the Great Northern Emperor from beginning to end, but she did not say anything and nobody knew what was on her mind.
After a while.
Immortal Fairy Bie Xue packed up the ‘Eighth Stage Sage whale feast’ into a large food box and handed it to the Great Emperor.
“Thank you, Fairy Bie Xue,” the Great Northern Emperor said with a sigh—these years, it wasn’t easy to get the opportunity to eat something so good.
“Senior Beifang is too polite.” Immortal Fairy Bie Xue politely bowed to the Great Emperor, and said, “Senior, may we meet again in the future.”
“Farewell,” the Great Northern Emperor said to everyone. “Also, little friend Shuhang. I’ll send that stupid turtle to you tonight, do get ready so that you receive it at that time.”
Song Shuhang said, “Great.”
The Great Northern Emperor warned, “In addition… I’m afraid that there will be a lot of strange occurrences in this time of ‘transition’. The passages between the various realms and the main world might open up. If these channels do indeed open up here on Earth, little friend Shuhang, please do pay attention to safety and don’t blindly rush into these channels.”
The main world was a very special place. It did not only contain the Earth, but also the whole surrounding space.
In this chaotic time, if the passages between the rest of the realms and the main world were to open, it was to be expected that there would a great number of strange occurrences born out of it.
At that time, it’d truly become troubled times.
Song Shuhang said, “I know, I will pay attention to safety.”
And so, the Great Northern Emperor took his leave.
The puppet maiden also returned to Song Shuhang’s magical bracelet.
Lady Onion and Little Cai were still lying beside each other, deeply trapped in their inner demon tribulation.
However, this did not affect the appetite of Song Shuhang and the others.
Immortal Fairy Bie Xue’s ‘Eighth Stage Sage whale feast’ began to have dishes coming one after another. The whale meat immortal dishes were so good that they could not close their mouths.
There was nothing that could be done about this. Due to Little Cai’s tribulation transcension being a bit too long, the whale meat dishes had been heated for too long. In order to avoid changes in flavor, Immortal Fairy Bie Xue could only speed up serving the dishes.
As a result… her previous plan of feeding ‘White’ while serving the dishes was once again in jeopardy. Immortal Fairy Bie Xue could only cry in the kitchen.
The energy in the whale meat feast was tremendous.
In order to prevent Song Shuhang’s, Shi’s, and Su Clan’s Sixteen’s cultivation from rising without their control, Immortal Fairy Bie Xue suggested that Senior White form a small formation for each of them, excluding the virtuous lamia.
This formation, which belonged to the category of semi-seal formations, could temporarily confine the energy they got from the whale feast.
Afterward, Song Shuhang and the others could control how much energy from their meal they wanted to have released.
It was tantamount to a water reservoir in which energy was temporarily being stored. They were able to control how much was released from beginning to end.
This formation came in handy every time an ‘Immortal Feast’ was held.
At the Immortal Feast, there would always be large sects that would allow their young disciples to take part in the feast, and these disciples would need this formation to help them digest what they ate during the ‘Immortal Feast’.
Sixteen had already experienced this formation before, but it had been Su Clan’s Seven who helped her in the past.
After the Eighth Stage Sage whale feast…
Immortal Fairy Bie Xue suggested that everyone spend the night in her immortal cave to digest the feast they just had. After eating, it was best to sit down and practice.
And the next morning, she would make a light meal for everyone to help with the digestion.
Immortal Fairy Bie Xue’s suggestion made sense, and nobody refused.
Song Shuhang was arranged to have his own room. To the right of his room was the room wherein Little Cai and Lady Onion were transcending their inner demon tribulation. After that was Shi’s, followed by Su Clan’s Sixteen’s, and on the far right was Senior White’s.
After Song Shuhang checked the state of Little Cai and Lady Onion, he sighed slightly and returned to his room. The inner demon tribulation of the two was going to take some time.
Soon after, Shuhang thought of something, and logged into the Nine Provinces Number One Group.
Tyrannical Saber Song One: “＠Everyone, Seniors, please note that there have been some changes to the heavenly tribulation. Recently, the heavenly tribulation can no longer be forcibly scattered. Even if the tribulation clouds were to be forcibly scattered, they would gather together once again after a while, forming a new tribulation cloud to continue the heavenly tribulation.”
Northern River’s Loose Cultivator: “Can your sources be trusted?”
Tyrannical Saber Song One: “My disciple Little Cai and Lady Onion have just transcended their tribulations. During Little Cai’s heavenly tribulation, Senior White had tried sealing and also scattering the tribulation clouds, but the heavenly tribulation did not stop.”
Wandering Monk Profound Principle: “🤨”
True Monarch Ancient Lake Temple: “This is really bad news… There are disciples in the temple who are soon transcending their tribulation.”
Medicine Master: “Medicine Master just transcended his tribulation. However, his heavenly tribulation was quite strange; it was very weak, but after he transcended it, he entered the inner demon tribulation state.”
…This message was sent by Riverly Purple Mist.
Tyrant Flood Dragon wants to father a football team: “The same thing happened over here at my side. Just now, I had a sea monster subordinate who transcended their tribulation, but her heavenly tribulation became very weak and she did not even need to resist at all. However, after her tribulation, she entered the inner demon tribulation state.”
Island Master Tian Tiankong: “The dao companion of one of my fellow daoists just came and said that a similar thing had happened when my fellow daoist was transcending their tribulation. The heavenly tribulation became weak, but immediately after, they entered the inner demon tribulation state.
Song Shuhang: “The same thing happened to all of you? The same thing happened when Lady Onion transcended her tribulation. After Little Cai transcended her tribulation, Lady Onion went and transcended her heavenly tribulation, but hers was very weak. After she transcended, she entered the inner demon tribulation state. When she was transcending her tribulation, it was when the problem with the Heaven’s… appeared. Moreover, Lady Onion was only transcending the heavenly tribulation of the Third Stage, which shouldn’t even have an inner demon tribulation.”
Medicine Master: “When Medicine Master transcended his tribulation, it was after the problem with the ‘Heaven’ appeared.”
Tyrant Flood Dragon wants to father a football team: “Same here.”
Song Shuhang suddenly got a terrible premonition.
Northern River’s Loose Cultivator: “There’s definitely a problem with this wave of inner demon tribulations. Let’s wait and see if the disciples who are transcending their tribulation wake up.
Fairy Lychee: “The heavens are really changing, ＠True Monarch Yellow Mountain, when are you going to transcend your tribulation? Are you going to wait first?”
True Monarch Yellow Mountain did not respond.
Could Yellow Mountain have already gone to transcend his tribulation? Fairy Lychee became restless.
Later at night.
Song Shuhang went to the next room and took a look. Lady Onion and Little Cai still had not woken up.
“I’ll wait until tomorrow. If they still aren’t awake by then, I’ll have to think of a way to deal with this,” Song Shuhang said to himself.
Finally, taking advantage of the dark of night, Song Shuhang quietly left Immortal Fairy Bie Xue’s immortal cave.
He was going to try out the ‘200 Must-have Skills for a Monster Spirit to Survive’.
