When light of virtue condensed, it would slightly increase the mental energy and physical strength of the cultivator affected. Song Shuhang learned about this when he saw the foreign monk using the soul ferrying technique to accumulate virtue.
At that time, he was still in the body-tempering stage, and he needed to strengthen his physique. As such, he had been rather envious of the foreign monk’s soul ferrying technique. This was also one of the main reasons why he decided to learn the soul ferrying technique later on.
Afterward, with the improvement of Song Shuhang’s strength, his mental energy and physical body continued to grow as well, which caused the enhancement brought about by the accumulation of virtue to be negligible.
But now, with the steel manifestation having become a little sun revolving around the Black Dragon World, illuminating the world and accruing virtue, Song Shuhang’s light of virtue would continue to condense, causing the quantity to grow unceasingly.
When countless small drops of water gather together, they would eventually become a vast ocean!
Something similar was happening to Song Shuhang’s physique and mental energy at this moment.
“No wonder Fairy Waiting for a Promise was able to evolve after I ferried the souls of a few beasts. It turns out that during these three days I was unconscious, she had constantly been gaining power of virtue.” Song Shuhang suddenly came to a realization.
The virtuous lamia stretched herself. In the air, countless small dots of virtue gathered towards her like fireflies. This scene was picturesque, and if there was a painter, seeing this scene would definitely stimulate their desire to paint.
If both my physique and mental energy are getting stronger… Song Shuhang willed it, and circulated the ❮Holy Ape Dragon Power Technique❯.
A total of 31 Holy Apes appeared above his head. There was an extra holy ape!
This time, the formation of the Holy Apes had changed once again.
The large Holy Ape given to him by Senior White Two sat in the middle, while the other 30 Holy Apes formed a circle, surrounding Song Shuhang and the large Holy Ape.
Since the ❮Scholarly Indestructible Body of the Buddha❯ wasn’t being circulated at this time, there were no Scholarly Scriptures in the hands of the Holy Apes.
Still, why did this scene look like a group of primitive people dancing around a fire?
Sure enough, books are incredibly important. They completely change a person’s temperament. Even when apes pick up a book, it will make them seem more refined.
“With the continuous acquisition of the power of virtue, your mental energy will continue to increase… Once it has reached a certain level, it might draw the Black Dragon World’s heavenly tribulation. After all, in the Black Dragon World, mental energy is the main focus of their cultivation,” Scarlet Heaven Sword kindly reminded Shuhang.
Song Shuhang nodded. Senior Scarlet Heaven Sword’s worries were not unfounded.
Song Shuhang said, “Just in case, I should transfer all the ‘magical power flow’ I have in the Dragon Network to Little Yinzhu first.”
Scarlet Heaven Sword nodded. “That is a good idea.”
Li Yinzhu felt as if she had heard Song Shuhang call her name in her sleep. Rubbing her eyes, she woke up dazedly. “A’Song, you called me?”
Song Shuhang smiled, and said, “Did you sleep well?”
“Mm-hm, I feel fully rested. But I saw that it was night outside, so I didn’t get up.” Li Yinzhu sat opposite Song Shuhang. “Is there anything you need from me?”
Song Shuhang stretched out his hand, took out a black dragon spirit stone from his magical bracelet, and then gave it to Li Yinzhu. “Yinzhu, try converting this black dragon spirit stone and activating your ‘magical power top-up device’. After that, I will send you some ‘magical power flow’. If you feel confident, you can try raising levels in the Dragon Network. The magical power top-up device can also be used for when you transcend tribulations in the future. Its function of ‘storing spells’ will prove especially useful in the main world.”
“Oh, okay.” Li Yinzhu nodded and took the black dragon spirit stone.
Song Shuhang turned his head again, and looked at the demonic hamster, who was standing on the balcony holding a sword and pretending to be cool. “№ Hamster, do you want to activate your ‘magical power top-up device’ too? If I remember correctly, Senior White Two should have given you a magical power top-up device, right?”
The demonic hamster raised its head, and said, “Hmph, I will hunt for black dragon spirit stones myself, so you don’t have to worry about me.”
Song Shuhang flicked his finger, and sent a black dragon spirit stone to the demonic hamster. “Count it as me lending it to you. Just pay me back extra later on.”
The demonic hamster took the black dragon spirit stone, and coolly said, “Alright, deal.”
There was no moon at night in the Black Dragon World. The atmosphere created by the fusion of the evil energy of the Netherworld and that other type of special energy caused a faint fluorescent light to appear in the sky, allowing the Black Dragon World to have some light at night.
The demonic hamster and Li Yinzhu sat opposite Song Shuhang, and both of them took out their magical power top-up device.
Song Shuhang began to teach the two how to recharge their device and how to enter a higher level of the ‘Dragon Network’.
Li Yinzhu had already gotten in contact with the Dragon Network, and even registered an account.
But the demonic hamster had to start from scratch.
Li Yinzhu placed her finger on the six-pointed star on the device. She then crushed the ‘black dragon spirit stone’ along with a long press and a light swipe on the button with her other hand.
The power of the black dragon spirit stone was absorbed by the Dragon Network. At the same time, mental energy and magical power fell on Li Yinzhu. This enhanced Li Yinzhu’s mental energy, activated her magical power top-up device, and added magical power flow into her personal account.
“It was a success, A’Song.” Li Yinzhu opened her silver eyes, which were full of joy.
Song Shuhang stretched out his hand and patted her head. “Well done. Next, I will transfer 600,000 units of magical power flow to your account. You can try going up levels in the Dragon Network. During that time, the Black Dragon World’s heavenly tribulations will descend on you. They will mainly target your mind, so make sure to be attentive.”
Li Yinzhu was a genuine Fourth Stage cultivator who had gone through two heavenly tribulations. Therefore, there wasn’t actually a need for Song Shuhang to tell her about the ‘heavenly tribulation’; it was merely a small reminder.
Li Yinzhu nodded. She grabbed her magical power top-up device, started adapting to it, and tried to use it to release ‘magical techniques’.
Meanwhile, the demonic hamster had finished registering an account, activating its magical power top-up device.
Song Shuhang transferred the remaining 100,000 units of magical power flow in his magical power top-up device to the demonic hamster’s account. “Remember, you’ll owe me extra for this.”
The demonic hamster looked hesitant for a moment, and then finally nodded.
Song Shuhang squinted his eyes, and patted the demonic hamster with a smile.
When Shuhang’s hand touched it, the demonic hamster subconsciously wanted to evade… but it couldn’t just act against someone who had just done it a favor. With the black dragon spirit stones used to activate the device already on the table, as well as the 100,000 units of magical power flow, it could only grit its teeth and stay put.
After a while, both Li Yinzhu and the demonic hamster got used to the ‘magical power top-up device’. They tried advancing to the higher levels in the Dragon Network.
Scarlet Heaven Sword hovered beside them, taking the initiative to protect them.
It murmured, “If someone had told me in the past that I would protect an evil demon of the Netherworld one day, I would’ve definitely spat at their face.”
Song Shuhang chuckled.
The night was long.
Song Shuhang had been out cold for three and a half days, and he naturally wouldn’t waste his time sleeping.
He sat cross-legged, closed his eyes, and began to meditate.
In any case, he was still a cultivator, and it was a cultivator’s duty to cultivate.
A cultivator’s daily life was to look for a blessed land, and cultivate day and night…
The virtuous lamia sat behind Song Shuhang, resting her cheek on one hand while looking at the sky in a daze. As for what she was thinking about, that was a mystery.
Song Shuhang slowly circulated the ❮Thirty-Three Divine Beasts’ Technique❯.
Speaking of which, after his last small dantian was occupied by a golden core, all the flaws of the ❮Thirty-Three Divine Beasts’ Technique❯ were fixed.
Song Shuhang felt that the risk of self-destructing had been resolved.
However, to be on the safe side, it was best for him to quickly ascend to the Sixth Stage Realm, turn his Golden Cores into a Spirit Lake, and solve this problem once for all.
After circulating the technique once, Song Shuhang entered the state of ‘meditation’.
His breathing stopped, and his heartbeat began to slow down.
At this time, inside Song Shuhang’s ‘magical bracelet’.
The screen of the magical power top-up device slightly lit up.
[News from the temple: After receiving feedback from the Dragon Blood Tribe, the mission has been confirmed to be completed. The mission of assisting the Dragon Blood Tribe was completed by Mr. ‘Tyrannical Dragon’. The Dragon Blood Tribe rewards him with 2,000,000 units of magical power flow.]
These 2,000,000 units of magical power flow were specifically provided by the considerate old tribal chief of the Dragon Blood Tribe.
In the morning, when he talked with Song Shuhang, he heard that he was preparing to rise to the Sixth Level of the Dragon Network in the near future. He estimated that Song Shuhang would need some ‘magical power flow’ to raise his level.
Out of gratitude, the considerate old tribal chief quietly prepared such a large gift for Song Shuhang.
But considering that the entire Dragon Blood Tribe was saved by Song Shuhang, 2,000,000 magical power flow really wasn’t that much.
One shouldn’t look down on the Dragon Blood Tribe just because they were in a remote place and looked poor.
The amount of ‘magical power flow’ they had was tremendous.
They were people who basically thrived in war, and had been training bitterly since they were young. The number of zombies and evil beasts they killed far exceeded that of the powerhouses in the ‘small dragon scale world’ city.
In fact, every adult combat mage in the Dragon Blood Tribe was secretly a rich man.
In the distant village, the old tribal chief smiled and took a sip of wine.
I hope that Mr. Shuhang likes his reward.
After all, he was the chief of a tribe, and one of his strengths was being understanding and considerate.
Inside Song Shuhang’s consciousness space.
While he was cultivating, his true self sat cross-legged.
At this time, the image of his true self had undergone some subtle changes.
It still had its upper body bare with muscles carved like marble, wearing a crown on his head, and holding ❮Ksitigarbha’s Soul Ferrying Scripture❯ in his hands.
But on the ‘back’ of his true self, there were seven round dots. These seven dots corresponded to the positions of the seven small golden cores, and formed a ‘dragon’ on Song Shuhang’s back.
I keep on getting the feeling that my style is becoming wilder and wilder, Song Shuhang thought to himself.
Just as he was thinking this, his consciousness suddenly shifted to the Dragon Network.
There, he saw the ‘Tyrannical Dragon’ access port rushing to the Sixth Level area.
“!!!” Song Shuhang.
What had happened?
