Chapter 723 - The Arrival of the Mu Clan
Progenitor Wen Dao quickly scanned his surroundings.
Due to the battle, the thirty-six snowy mountains had begun to crumble. Many elders and disciples of the Dao-Seeking Mountain had been slain, dying the surrounding snowy ground an eye-catching crimson color.
Progenitor Wen Dao clenched his teeth. He could no longer care about anything else. Even though he was unwilling to use his final resort, it was his only way to overcome the trouble before him!
"Do you think the Dao-Seeking Mountain that has existed for thousands of years would be destroyed this easily?" Progenitor Wen Dao suddenly took out a strange-looking badge. He flicked a drop of blood onto it and transmitted his voice.
Tang Qingshan's eyes flickered coldly as a terrifying saber glow was fired.
However, at that instant.
An ancient rune appeared out of nowhere and rapidly summoned a terrifying formation. A human figure appeared at the center of the formation with a flicker.
Tang Qingshan and his crew raised their heads.
Their faces turned pale following a glimpse.
A young man with golden hair and a pair of sharp eyes stood at the center of the formation. Even though he only possessed an aura of the third-layer Martial Sacred Realm, the long robe he was wearing had the character '穆' (Mu) written on it!
A person wearing a long robe with the character '穆' written on it was definitely from the Mu Clan of the Eastern Continent!
What's going on here? How was the Dao-Seeking Mountain related to the Mu Clan?
The young man glanced at the crowd in astonishment, before he switched his gaze onto Progenitor Wen Dao and spoke in a prideful tone.
"Progenitor Wen Dao, in the past, as the first Sect Leader of the Dao-Seeking Mountain was somehow related to my father, he was given a badge that could summon my father once to help him with his troubles. However, my father is currently busy, hence I am here. Say, what's the matter?"
These words caused the crowd to hold their breaths.
They had never expected this!
The first Sect Leader of the Dao-Seeking Mountain was related to the Mu Clan!
Judging from the young man's cultivation, he was surely one of the core disciples of the Mu Clan. Therefore, his father must be a terrifying presence within the Mu Clan.
If the Mu Clan were to interfere, how were they going to eliminate the Dao-Seeking Mountain?
"What a surprise from the Dao-Seeking Mountain! Who would've thought that they would have such a trump card!" The Leader of the Trading Alliance was incredibly shocked in addition to feeling fortunate. He had definitely made the right decision to stay and provide his assistance. There was no way Qin Nan could escape today!
Qin Nan raised his head and his eyes flickered.
The Mu Clan, it was the Mu Clan again.
Even though he was clueless as to who they were, judging from the reaction of the Sky-Scorching Emperor and his crew, he could easily tell that this Mu Clan that the young man was representing was a terrifying presence.
"Qin Nan, this is not looking good…" The Disordered Ocean Progenitor wore a troubled look.
He did not expect the Mu Clan would be involved. Normally, as the conqueror of the Eastern Continent, the Mu Clan would rarely interfere in the battles between the other factions.
That being said, if he were at his peak, even the Patriarch of the Mu Clan would not be able to stop him, let alone a core disciple of the Mu Clan. However, both of the Martial Progenitors only possessed cultivations of the Martial Sacred Realm for the time being.
"Seniors, what exactly is this Mu Clan?" Qin Nan wore a calm expression as he transmitted his voice.
"You don't know?" The Disordered Ocean Progenitor was stunned.
"The upper district is split into five continents. Apart from the Middle Continent, each of the East, South, West, and North Continents have a power in charge. The power in charge of the Eastern Continent is the Mu Clan, with a far greater influence than the Four Great Factions. Besides, the Patriarch of the Mu Clan possesses a cultivation of the Martial Progenitor Realm…" The Crimson Blood Progenitor explained.
Qin Nan was startled.
He had not expected the existence of a power in charge above the Four Great Factions, which was the Mu Clan in this case, not to mention that their Patriarch possessed a cultivation of the Martial Progenitor Realm.
Progenitor Wen Dao stepped forward with a lowered stance and said, "Young man, are you aware of the Dao-Seeking Treasure Vault that no one has managed to crack open for thousands of years…"
The young man nodded.
He was definitely aware of the existence of the Dao-Seeking Treasure Vault. He had even disguised himself and entered the treasure vault before, but failed to find the precious treasure.
"This man right here with the name Qin Nan has taken the precious treasure from the Dao-Seeking Treasure Vault! Following that, he colluded with the Blind Swordsman of our Dao-Seeking Mountain and killed the Thunderous Spiritual Beasts, so that he could destroy our Heavenly Celestial Formation with the force of his Tribulation…"
Progenitor Wen Dao pointed at Qin Nan with a contorted face as he explained the series of events that had occurred.
The young man was stunned as he glanced at Qin Nan, his eyes filled with astonishment.
He had vaguely speculated about the battle that had taken place here when he had first arrived, but he never thought that the one causing it would be the young man standing before him.
Since when did such a peerless genius appear in the Eastern Continent?
"Did you say that he has claimed possession of the precious treasure?" The young man interrupted Progenitor Wen Dao's speech and set his gaze upon the Heaven-Shattering Saber in Qin Nan's hand, before quickly glancing at the countless rare artifacts floating behind him, which caused his heart to race.
According to the rumors, the one that acquired the precious treasure would be granted a chance to alter their destiny!
Although he was clueless about where the saber came from, it was surely something extraordinary, not to mention the presence of the rare artifacts!
Despite his identity as the core disciple of the Mu Clan, he could no longer retain his calm attitude in front of the treasures!
"That's right!" Progenitor Wen Dao was sharp in his thinking, "Young man, if the Mu Clan is willing to solve our troubles today, consider the precious treasure a gift to your father. As for the rare artifacts, you're more than welcome to take them…"
Although Progenitor Wen Dao could feel his heart bleeding, as long as he managed to detain Qin Nan today, he still had the chance to retrieve Sacred Leader Qinglong's power from him!
The eyes of the young man glistened upon hearing this, who then turned to the crowd and straightened his face, "Everyone, listen up! The Mu Clan is here! The battle comes to an end now! If anyone dares to move, it will be considered challenging the authority of the Mu Clan!"
A tremendous glow was emitted from the young man's figure, which formed an ancient character '穆' (Mu) in the air.
As the character appeared, it felt like everything in the surroundings was frozen!
The expressions of the Sky-Scorching Emperor and his crew stiffened. Their hearts sunk to the bottom as they witnessed the sight that they were most unwilling to see.
The Mu Clan was indeed interfering!
If they were to attack, it would serve as an opposition to the will of the Mu Clan, which would bring the wrath of the Mu Clan's Patriarch upon them.
If they decided not to attack, the opportunity that Qin Nan had given them after sacrificing his Tribulation to destroy the Heavenly Celestial Formation would be in vain. Furthermore, judging from the young man's reaction, it seemed like he was interested in Qin Nan's treasures...
What should they do now?
