One had to admit that the Great Devil Puppet Portrait was an extremely alluring divine skill. In addition to the first two methods mentioned previously, there was another method to craft devil puppets. However, this method could only be used by elite warriors of the Supreme Dao.
It was because this method would require one to separate the divine soul from the Primordial Spirit. The divine soul would transform into a genuine body and become the puppet. For such method, rarely anyone among the elite Divine Dao warriors knew how to use it. The reason was that to craft Great Devil Puppet Portrait, one must grasp the method to make puppets and create puppets from the divine soul.
Qin Wushuang put away the "Great Devil Puppet Portrait" book away. Then, he walked around this secret chamber a few times. In addition to this inside secret chamber, the chamber outside and those storage items also contained a great amount of treasure. There were crystal stones, armours, weapons, pills and many more.
Qin Wushuang knew that these were left by Lu Xianlou to prepare to deal with the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect. Of course, with just Qin Wushuang's power alone, he could not move all these treasures. Thus, he decided to not move these treasures for now and leave them here in case of emergency.
Per the instructions left by Lu Xianlou, these treasures were enough to match the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect's wealth. Although Qin Wushuang could not measure the amount of treasures in here, when a palace-sized underground room was full of such things, it was apparent to see how much preparation Lu Xianlou had made to collect these great objects to deal with the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect for the past hundred years.
To put it bluntly, if Lu Xianlou had intended to establish a sect, with sufficient manpower, he could finish all the steps in half a year. He would not even have to worry about the problem of having insufficient wealth!
These treasures were enough to make a second-rate powerhouse feel ashamed of being inferior.
A lake may have boundless waters, but Qin Wushuang would only take one jug of it to not die from thirst. He still left the other goods in their original places. When needed, he would come to retrieve them.
After a long walk, Qin Wushuang left behind this deep abyss and sealed it completely. Then, without leaving any traces, he exited the underground and greeted the sun again.
Before he had travelled for too long, that Saber Tooth Cover Yellow Dragon emerged from under the ground. The appearance of this giant figure would always stir a great commotion.
"Big guy, why did you come here?" Bao Bao was rather curious, "You are neglecting your duty. Go guard your territory."
The Saber Tooth Cover Yellow Dragon did not mind as he gave a simple-minded laugh: "It seems that you lucky guys have already discovered Mr. Lu's secret chamber he left for the young ones. Congratulations."
Qin Wushuang nodded and said to the Saber Tooth Cover Yellow Dragon: "Dragon, how many of your friends are in this Dark Wind Valley?"
The Saber Tooth Covert Yellow Dragon laughed: "Mr. Lu has a good relationship with everyone. Besides me, there are at least three or four spiritual beasts working for him. We would not dare to boast in other places of the Divine Brilliance Prefecture. However, in the area of the Dark Wind Valley, even the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect would not find any advantages. However, we share a mutual understanding. Since they know that it's not easy to offend the Dark Wind Valley, usually ordinary disciples would not dare to come here. Even if they came and went missing without cause, the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect would not dare to investigate deeply!"
"If you have the skills, why not start the war on the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect for Mr. Lu?" Bao Bao asked with confused tone.
"Declare war on the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect?" The Saber Tooth Cover Yellow Dragon did not know whether to laugh or cry, "Little Monkey, are you not joking? The Dark Wind Valley have four great Suzerains, and all super spiritual beasts of the Perfect Void Martial Stage. However, regarding declaring war on the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect, it would be digging our own graves!"
"In our territory, with our terrain advantage, we can play with the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect. Yet, once we've left the Dark Wind Valley and stir trouble in their territory, it would be equivalent to courting disaster! Do you know how many layers of formations there are at the mountain gate of the Heavenly Luo Daoist sect?"
His words left Bao Bao dumbstruck and unable to reply as he asked stutteringly: "Could it be that Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect is a dragon pond, tiger cave, mountain of knives, and sea of flames?"
"Ha, even if I saw it to be mountain of knives and a sea of flames, it's not that scary!" When the Saber Tooth Covert Yellow Dragon talked about the strength of the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect, he revealed a blustering expression. Clearly, he had lingering fears.
Since the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect had been tyrannical across the Divine Brilliance Prefecture, they had held a prestigious reputation. Although the Dark Wind Valley was the territory of the Divine Brilliance Prefecture, these spiritual beasts had more or less heard about the powerful Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect. They knew that after they left the Dark Wind Valley, they did not have much qualification to become enemies of the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect.
Therefore, despite hating the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect, and being loyal and impressed by Lu Xianlou, they did not have the confidence to challenge the sect.
Although Bao Bao felt unconvinced, he was stopped by Qin Wushuang's glance.
"Dragon, Mr. Lu already feels extremely grateful that you've continued to guard the Dark Wind Valley for him. Regarding dealing with the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect, let us handle it."
The Saber Tooth Covert Yellow Dragon laughed: "Of course, whoever inherited Mr. Lu's secret treasures, they would be qualified to deal with the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect."
Qin Wushuang laughed and said: "Dragon, I still must entrust the defense of the Dark Wind Valley to you guys."
"You are leaving now?" Saber Tooth Covert Yellow Dragon said with surprise.
"Time is limited, we must hurry. When the main force of the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect returns to the Heavenly Sun Mountain, we would not be able to move as conveniently like we do now."
"That's right, then I will not keep you here. You may rest assured when it comes to guarding the Dark Wind Valley. Even if Luo Tongtian were to come, we will have ways to make him stop." There was a few traces of confidence in the tone of the Saber Tooth Covert Yellow Dragon.
Upon leaving the Dark Wind Valley, Qin Wushuang kept moving forward. Currently, each step he made took him closer to the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect.
This surge of power moved Qin Wushuang forward. Having been hunted by the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect for such a long time, he finally found the chance to strike back.
The boundary of the Divine Brilliance Prefecture was at least twenty to thirty thousand miles away. To reach the Heavenly Sun Mountain after leaving the Dark Wind Valley, they would at least needed a day and a night of time.
If Qin Wushuang were to travel at full speed, it would not take him that long. However, the current Divine Brilliance Prefecture was a sensitive area. When the main force of the sect had left their base, they had most likely implemented emergency measures inside the mountain gate. Certainly, there would be many elite warriors left to guard their home in the Divine Brilliance Prefecture.
Therefore, Qin Wushuang would not underestimate his enemy and would not be blindly optimistic. He only had one goal and that would be to deliver a heavy bow at the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect. If he had the chance to destroy the lifeline of the Heavenly Sun Mountain, that would be the best. The Heavenly Sun Mountain was the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect's base of operations in terms of survival. If the lifeline of the Heavenly Sun Mountain was destroyed, it would certainly influence their fortune.
Of course, it would not be an easy task to approach the Heavenly Sun Mountain. Qin Wushuang did not dare to let down his guard. Through his thorough investigation and scouting, he knew that from the exterior part of the Heavenly Sun Mountain to the core area of the Heavenly Luo Daoist sect, there were a dozen of defensive mechanisms along the way. To pass through these defensive measures, unless he used some kind of tactics or acquired an acceptable identity, it would be impossible to approach without cause and remain unnoticed.
The strength of the defense in the Heavenly Sun Mountain had reached an extent in which a fly would not be able to fly close. Qin Wushuang opened the map and started to study it.
This Heavenly Sun Mountain was also a place of great Feng Shui in the Divine Brilliance Prefecture. The south side of the mountain was the capital city to the Divine Brilliance Prefecture and the most prosperous city in the prefecture.
Inside the capital city of the Divine Brilliance Prefecture, the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect had set up many secular institutions. These institutions took care of the matters of the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect in the secular world and oversaw the general situation.
Perhaps, it would not be easy to enter the Heavenly Sun Mountain. But, it would be quite easier to enter the capital city of the Divine Brilliance Prefecture.
Of course, it was one matter to enter, yet it would be another matter if he were to make his identity look reliable and free of suspicion.
Therefore, Qin Wushuang was not in a hurry to enter the Divine Brilliance Prefecture. Instead, he stopped at a state city that was a thousand miles away from the capital city.
He decided to make some changes at this River Gate State City and search for an identity that would enable him to enter the Divine Brilliance City inconspicuously. As long as he could enter the Divine Brilliance City, he would think of a way to approach the Heavenly Sun Mountain.
To approach the Heavenly Sun Mountain, he must acquire an identity. His best option would be to become a disciple of the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect. This would be the most crucial point.
If he could acquire an identity as a disciple to the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect, it would appear reasonable to enter the sect. Additionally, he would not need to worry about being exposed by people along the way.
This River Gate State City was extremely close to the Divine Brilliance City. Since it depended on the Divine Brilliance City, it appeared extremely flourishing. With all kinds of people gathered here, it appeared to be a core city.
Qin Wushuang was still dressed as a freelance martial artist when he entered the River Gate State City. This city evoked a feeling of majesty and splendour. The locals appeared to honor and take pride in the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect. It seems that the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect appeared powerful and prestigious in the Divine Brilliance Prefecture.
From great streets to small alleys, he often heard people talking about the different unique stories of the Xuan Yuan Mound. Of course, there were talks of the hunt for Qin Wushuang.
The locals did not hold back when they talked about Qin Wushuang. From their tones, there were lots of disdain and dislike for Qin Wushuang. They seemed to want the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect to catch Qin Wushuang, then to peel off his scalp, and strip off his tendons to simmer oil for the lamp.
Of course, Qin Wushuang would not lower himself to their levels. Regardless of where he went, he only remained calm and collected despite hearing such talks.
He paced next to the great square of the River Gate State City. This was a famous place for the River Gate State City and a freelance martial artist haven for the prefectures surrounding the Divine Brilliance Prefecture.
Around this major square, a main street area had formed a major urban subdivision for the freelance martial artists. This urban subdivision would hold many activities each year. Some were fixed, and some were unfixed activities.
This urban division was flourishing and held a high reputation among the freelance martial artists. Therefore, when Qin Wushuang his group arrived there, they clearly sensed an incredibly lively atmosphere.
Such liveliness also meant that this place was mixed with fish and dragons. Some hidden elite warriors wanted to pick up some advantages and get some good things. Some lowlifes would want to take advantage for their personal gain.
As Qin Wushuang strolled around the place, it seemed that he was looking at his surroundings from his actions, in fact he was searching for opportunities. On the other end, he was also secretly paying attention and to see whether someone was thinking of taking advantage of him.
