Chapter 924 - Summoned by the Order
As the name suggested, a Monarch Art could only be invented by those who had achieved the Martial Monarch Realm.
Since the young man was daring enough to try inventing a Monarch Art with his current cultivation and Martial Spirit, it highlighted how outstanding his Martial Skill Talent was.
That being said, it was also possible that the young man had been granted the ability to invent a Monarch Art after acquiring the powerful succession of the Fire Path Mountain Range.
The young man continued to write with the brush, causing the will of the Monarch Art to be refined, indicating that he had almost finished. However, he suddenly frowned and stopped writing.
The will of the Monarch Art dispersed.
Normally, people would be confused seeing this. Why did he give up when he was so close to success?
However, Qin Nan's eyes flickered with surprise.
This man should not be underestimated!
Even though the Monarch Art he had invented was quite powerful, he was still not too satisfied with it. If that was the case, why should he continue inventing the Monarch Art?
He wanted to improve further, to surpass his own limits!
At that instant, an ancient voice entered the mysterious young man's mind, causing him to wear a dumbfounded expression. He immediately turned around and stared in Qin Nan's direction.
Their eyes met.
Qin Nan was stunned.
Why was the young man looking at him when there were so many people around?
The mysterious young man let out a smile and brought his fists together. Even though he did not say anything, Qin Nan knew that he was greeting him.
Qin Nan's eyes glistened as he responded with the same gesture.
Following this, the young man pointed forward before he turned around and gathered his focus back on the fiery writing brush.
"Such a pity, I don't have much time now. Otherwise, I would like to share my understandings with him …" Qin Nan exclaimed.
He was a fan of Martial Skills too, and this was his first time stumbling into someone with such remarkable Martial Skill Talent.
"Sima Kong, let's go. Someone else has already taken the succession." Qin Nan said as he saw more cultivators arriving at the scene.
"Sigh, such a waste of my time."
Sima Kong waved his hand.
A moment later, Qin Nan and his crew arrived at the bottom of the hill. Little did they know, a few moments after they left, City Lord Zhou also went to check on the rare phenomenon, but they still missed each other.
"Qin Nan, it's time for me to leave. Remember to notify me if you are planning something fun!" Sima Kong chuckled as he gave Qin Nan a thoughtful look, before his figure vanished into the clouds.
Qin Nan was left speechless. He shook his head and looked into the distance.
Now that he had overcome his Tribulation, he had reached a certain point on his path of cultivation. All he needed to do was to improve the nine Martial Trees. Therefore, his priority now was to rank up his Divine Battle Spirit and locate the third piece of treasure left by the Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch.
Once he found the last piece of treasure, it would be everything that the Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch had left for him.
Qin Nan was about to contact someone with his badge when some other badge emitted a glow. It was the badge of the Human Peak's Peak Leader!
"Mm? A message from the Dragon Emperor Clan?"
Qin Nan was startled.
The only ones that could send a message to the badge were the authorities of the Dragon Emperor Clan.
Qin Nan frowned as he checked the content.
All Peak Leaders were to return to the Dragon Emperor Clan at once?
Why was that?
"Forget it, I'll ask the Shadow Pagoda for the information I need, then make my way back to the Dragon Emperor Clan!" Qin Nan transmitted a message to the Shadow Pagoda and flew into the distance.
…A few days later, in the Dragon Emperor Clan…
Qin Nan's figure slowly appeared from the formation, with a scent of blood.
He had stumbled into a few ambushes set up by the people of the Magical Thunder City along his journey.
"To the Peak Leaders Hall!"
With a flicker, Qin Nan arrived at the top of a mountain. In front of him stood an imperious palace encapsulated in an ancient aura.
The Dragon Emperor Clan had fifty-eight peaks, each with a Peak Leader.
If anything serious were to take place, which would affect all the peaks, a meeting would be held at the Peak Leaders Hall.
As soon as Qin Nan stepped into the hall, the place became quiet all of a sudden, as countless sharp gazes scanned his figure.
Qin Nan calmly scanned his surroundings.
In the hall, including himself, fifty-seven of the Peak Leaders had arrived, each with a powerful cultivation. Most of them had achieved the peak Martial Progenitor Realm, while the weakest was the eighth-layer Martial Progenitor Realm.
"Hehe, Peak Leader Qin Nan, such arrogance, making us wait for an hour?" A cold voice could be heard.
The one speaking was the Peak Leader of the Skyhowl Wolf Peak, Xuan Li!
He was also Xuan Yue's father.
After learning that Xuan Yue had become Qin Nan's mount, Xuan Li was extremely infuriated. He had tried to convince Xuan Yue, but there was nothing he could do seeing Xuan Yue's firm determination.
As such, he had put the blame on Qin Nan.
With his son's talent and pride, if Qin Nan had not tricked him, why would he agree to be his mount?
The Peak Leaders grinned as they watched silently.
Qin Nan did not respond. He found his seat and sat down, ignoring everyone's gaze.
Xuan Li was furious after being ignored, but he was not allowed to use violence, thus he could only hold the grudge.
After all, Qin Nan's status was on par with his in the Dragon Emperor Clan.
At that instant, a powerful presence arrived, sitting in the leading spot.
Qin Nan raised his head and saw a middle-aged man with a stern look, wearing golden armor plates. His eyes had a faint golden glow.
This was the Dragon Emperor Clan's first elder Hua Lie, who was also the Peak Leader of the fourth peak, the Blue-Glow Unicorn Peak. His authority was second only to the three Monarch Beasts!
"This Hua Lie's cultivation is quite powerful, only a step away from achieving the Martial Monarch Realm…"
Qin Nan's eyes flickered with astonishment.
"Everyone, you're here because we've something urgent to discuss!" Hua Lie's gaze quickly glimpsed at Qin Nan as he spoke, "The inner disciple trial will be taking place three months in advance, which is happening in two days! Any question?"
The words served as a shocking thunder.
Many Peak Leaders were shocked.
The inner disciple trial was a competition between the inner disciples, as a method for the sect to analyze their cultivations. Most of the factions would have similar trials once every year.
As such, the inner disciple trial of the Dragon Emperor Clan was considered a grand occasion.
Therefore, for the past few hundred years, the trial had never happened earlier than the scheduled date.
Even Qin Nan frowned upon hearing this.
