Chapter 99 Falling Fire
Qin Yun slowly walked in. Although he was dressed in simple attire, he was elegant, decent and full of spirit. He was confident and not proud. He had a calm that didn't match his age and was very attractive.
Everyone's gaze immediately gathered on the bronze badge on his left chest!
This was an emblem that only Inscriptionists could have. On top of the emblem was a gem. It was an elementary level Inscription Master.
Everyone knew that Qin Yun was only fifteen and a half years old!
He was about four years younger than Liang Shuijin, and he had already become a beginner level Inscription Master. All the old Inscriptionists present were all amazed.
The general director, Duan Gan, also appeared. He smiled and said, "There are quite a few people participating this time. There's a total of eighty people."
"Chief Steward, is Qin Yun really an Inscription Master?" Master Wei could not accept this.
Duan Qian laughed, "Qin Yun can craft talismans. You witnessed it for yourself! After he stepped into the 6th level of the Martial Body realm, he was able to refine an Inferior Grade Spirit Weapon and then set up a formation.
The fact that Qin Yun was at the sixth level of the Martial Body realm was something everyone knew. It was already unbelievable to begin with.
Especially the people in Blue Spirit Star Palace. They were certain that it would take Qin Yun many years to reach the sixth level of the martial body if he failed to cultivate the Soul Scripture.
However, not too long after, Qin Yun had broken through to the sixth level of the Martial Body realm and slapped them in the face.
At that moment, the most unacceptable thing was that Qin Yun had actually become a beginner inscription master!
Within the Blue Spirit Star Palace, to be able to proudly reach the heavens at the age of 19 when one became a primary inscription master, it could be seen just how rare this young tattoo master was!
However, Qin Yun, the abandoned prince, had grown to such a terrifying state in five years. Everyone wanted to know how much suffering he had endured in order to reach such a state!
Liang Shuijin gritted his teeth. Due to Qin Yun's appearance, his limelight had been taken away.
"Not bad, not bad. It's also good to join in on the fun. If you want to get a good ranking, then don't count on it." Master Wei forced a smile.
His son had died an unknown death. As for Qin Yun, who he hated the most, he had become a beginner level Inscription Master. His heart was bleeding with hatred.
Qin Yun only gave a faint smile.
Duan Gan said, "Today's competition is different from previous competitions. This time, we need everyone to forge a piece of five thousand kilograms of iron into a spirit strip! Notice that it's 10,000 Jin of iron, not spirit iron!"
Qin Yun frowned tightly as the other inscriptionists cried out in surprise.
Iron, of course, was iron used by ordinary people. This type of iron was also smelted from iron ore. Different from spirit iron, ordinary iron did not have spirit energy, and it was also not tough enough. There were many impurities.
It wasn't impossible to forge iron into spirit iron, but the process was very difficult.
Furthermore, it would be extremely difficult to turn ten thousand jin into the size of a thumb just by thinking about it.
"Isn't that a bit difficult?" A Star Palace man asked.
Duan Qian said with a smile, "Our Mysterious Pattern Palace knew that your Blue Spirit Star Palace wanted to come, so we took out an extremely precious item as our first prize. That's why the difficulty has increased by a lot."
Everyone began to curse in their hearts. Clearly, the rules of the competition had been changed by the Hall of Wonders.
The Blue Spirit Star Palace sent young people who weren't particularly skilled. The more difficult the competition, the less chance they would have to obtain it.
"General director, this means that the reward of first place will definitely not disappoint us." Master Wei smiled and said, "Can you tell me first? Then we'll decide to register. "
Forming a Spirit Iron that was the size of a thumb and weighing ten thousand Jin was an extremely difficult task.
This group of Inscription Masters normally wouldn't do this kind of hard work, especially the older generation Inscription Masters. They would hand forging spirit iron to their subordinates, or directly purchase it.
"A cluster of Fallen Flame!" As Duan Qian's words came out, all the Inscription Masters in the hall revealed fanatical joy.
Qin Yun's heart was palpitating with excitement!
In the legends, it was said that the Fallen Flame Martial Spirit descended from the sky. If it was successfully merged, then the Martial Spirit could be promoted to a Heavenly Flame Martial Spirit.
Seeing the shocked expression on everyone's face, Duan Gan laughed, "Actually, the Fallen Fire isn't as amazing as the legends say. It can't make people immediately possess a Divine Fire Martial Spirit, and could only help their Martial Spirit advance one rank.
"For example, the ability to upgrade the Gold Fire Martial Spirit to the Platinum Fire Martial Spirit, and so on."
Even so, that was still very good.
Qin Yun looked at the people from Blue Spirit Star Palace. They also wanted the Fallen Fire so badly. In other words, such a thing was extremely rare in Blue Spirit Star Palace.
"Is there any difference between this and the Soulflight Stone?" Qin Yun himself had the Violet-Gold Flying Spirit Stone.
Duan Qian answered, "There are big differences. For example, the Golden Soul Soaring Stone can only help the Fire Martial Spirit advance to Gold rank. There is a certain limit and the benefit is that it can help the Martial Spirit advance."
"On the other hand, Fallen Fire is different. It can raise a fire-attribute Martial Spirit of any rank by a level. "Now that you have a purple gold fire martial spirit, if you were to increase your power by another level, what would happen?"
Everyone took a deep breath. A purple gold ranked martial spirit was already considered a top grade martial spirit.
They wanted to know the answer but they did not want to see Qin Yun's purple gold fire martial spirit increase.
"You can decide whether you want to sign up or not!" Duan Qian chuckled.
When Qin Yun saw everyone's expression, he knew that the registration fee would definitely not be low. Furthermore, he did not have much crystal coins on him.
"500,000 crystal coins, right?" Master Wei was the first to walk up. If his Fire Martial Spirit could be upgraded, his strength would also be improved by a large amount. Not to mention five hundred thousand crystal coins, it would even be worth five million.
"Eight hundred thousand this year and minors won't have to pay." Duan Gan said.
The adult was 16 years old and Qin Yun was only 15 years old. Therefore, there was no need for the registration fee. This made him heave a sigh of relief.
There had always been such a rule, so no one else could say anything.
"Eight hundred thousand!" Master Wei was rather generous.
Duan Qian smiled as he received the eight hundred purple coins. The other Inscriptionists also began to pay their registration fees, but not a single one of the people from Blue Spirit Star Palace came up.
"Can we wait?" The leader of the Star Palace said with an embarrassed look on his face. The arrogance that he had when they came in had also disappeared.
This was because everyone could tell that they did not bring enough crystal coins!
The registration fee was 800,000 people per person, and was not something that these youngsters could afford. There were 20 people here, and that alone was 16 million crystal coins!
If one were to add in the registration fee for other old weirdos, it would be an enormous sum. Even if the Hall of Marking handed over the Fallen Fire, it wouldn't be much of a loss.
"Are you really sure that you can get first place?" Although his smile was extremely amiable, it revealed an intangible sense of ridicule.
"Among us twenty, one of us will definitely get first place!" After those from Blue Spirit Star Palace felt the taunt, they shouted, "Can we wait here for a while? I'll get someone to send some crystal coins over."
Duan Qian was still full of smiles as he said, "I can have you all sign up first, then we can start the competition in the afternoon."
All the Inscription Masters were extremely envious of Qin Yun. To be able to participate in the competition free of charge, even if they could not obtain first place, they could at least broaden their horizons.
"Alright, the registration for this year's Alchemy Competition will end in the afternoon!" Duan Gan announced.
