Black smoke spread out in the area, carrying with it a destructive force that caused the Earthly Sovereigns to turn pale. They had not expected the Lord of the Divine Pavilion to have his eye on the power that had been left behind by Sky-Devouring Evil Emperor, as well as the other Spiritual Deity Liquid. It was apparent that, with these two items, it would be easy for him to break through to the Upper Earthly Sovereign level.
Mu Chen turned a ghastly pale. Judging from the situation, the Lord of the Divine Pavilion had the audacity to be so haughty, since he was well prepared. Although the oppression that the Lord of Divine the Pavilion had exuded was not at the level of an Upper Earthly Sovereign, it was still much more powerful than Mandela's. Thus, if the two of them were to fight, Mandela would not be able to defeat him.
"You have indeed planned it well!"
Mandela had noticed the increase in the power of the Lord of the Divine Pavilion as well. She gritted her teeth and said coldly, "You are crazy. The power of the Extraterritorial Race does not blend easily with The Great Thousand World. If you use this power to break through to the Upper Earthly Sovereign level, you will regret it in the future!"
Although Sky-Devouring Evil Emperor had been killed, his power did not belong to The Great Thousand World. There would definitely be repercussions in the future, even if the Lord of the Divine Pavilion was able to suppress them at the moment.
When the Lord of the Divine Pavilion heard this, he simply laughed and said, "In this world, everything comes with a price. This price is still within my acceptable range. When I receive the inheritance of the Primordial Celestial Palace, I may become the overlord of the Tianluo Continent. The Divine Pavilion will then become the supreme power in The Great Thousand World."
"Ha, you are so ambitious!" When Holy Ancestor heard this, he mocked the Lord of the Divine Pavilion. He had thought that the Lord of the Divine Pavilion had only wanted to unify the North Territory, but he wanted to rule the Tianluo Continent as well.
If he was able to take over this vast continent, the resources and territories would be great beyond imagination. It would then be possible for him to become the supreme power.
However, it would not be easy to dominate the Tianluo Continent, unless he was an Upper Earthly Sovereign. If he did not achieve this level, all these things would be just a dream.
"The inheritance of the Primordial Celestial Palace?"
Light flashed across the eyes of Mandela and Mu Chen, when they heard what the Lord of the Divine Pavilion had said. He knew about the secret of the Tianluo Continent, which was the Primordial Celestial Palace!
The Primordial Celestial Palace was a supreme power in the Primordial Age. There were many masters, whose strengths were similar to the fourth hall master in the Primordial Celestial Palace. The Master of Primordial Celestial Palace was a powerful Upper Earthly Sovereign.
If one could locate the Primordial Celestial Palace, he would be able to obtain the inheritance. He would then become another supreme power in the Tianluo Continent.
However, Mu Chen was not interested in the inheritance of the Primordial Celestial Palace. He really just needed to get the cultivation method in order to refine The Great Solar Undying Body.
Based on the information that he had received, this was the second stage that he had to go through in order to refine The Great Solar Undying Body into The Primordial Immortal Body.
As long as he could possess The Primordial Immortal Body, he would have a standing in The Great Thousand World. By then, he would be able to contend with the mysterious race, which was the race that his mother belonged to, and also be able to use the Great Pagoda.
"How did you find out about the secret of the Primordial Celestial Palace?" Mandela looked at the Lord of the Divine Pavilion and asked.
The Tianluo Continent did not try to hide the secret of the Primordial Celestial Palace, but throughout the years, no one had yet been able to locate it. Thus, Mandela was suspicious of what the Lord of the Divine Pavilion had said.
The Lord of the Divine Pavilion simply ignored Mandela, as he looked viciously at the other Earthly Sovereigns and said with a smile, "Do you still think that I am not qualified to lead the North Territory?"
The forces kept quiet, and even the faces of Holy Ancestor, Demon Emperor, and the other Earthly Sovereigns turned pale. These change of events had taken them by surprise.
They then looked hopefully at Mandela. She was the only with the ability to stand up to the Lord of the Divine Pavilion.
Mandela turned pale and stared at the Lord of the Divine Pavilion. She then took a deep breath and said in a low voice, "The Daluo Territory has no intention to work with the Divine Pavilion!"
Mandela had finally made her stand. She would not submit to the Lord of the Divine Pavilion or work for him. The Lord of the Divine Pavilion was not surprised by her reaction. He simply smiled and said flatly, "In that case, the Daluo Territory shall no longer exist in the North Territory."
His words were filled with killing intent, and the top powers, including Mu Chen, were shocked by them. The other forces turned pale, and everyone felt insecure.
"Oh? Then we shall see how capable you are!" Mandela said coldly. The spiritual energy around her whizzed out like a windstorm, tearing the space apart.
As she stepped out, the space raged. She looked sharply at the Lord of the Divine, Pavilion, ready to fight to the end, as she would not compromise.
"Hohoho, do you think that you can contend with me? You only have the strength of a Half Step to Upper Earthly Sovereign!" The Lord of the Divine Pavilion laughed softly. Killing intent filled the area as he said this.
"It looks like the Daluo Territory is the greatest stumbling block to my leading the North Territory. After I am done with you, I shall deal with the rest of the forces."
The Lord of the Divine Pavilion smiled and waved his sleeve. Black smoke surged, and a strange power polluted the sky. The spiritual energy in the area was tainted as well, making it impossible for the top powers to control it.
Mandela looked at the tainted area and turned pale. The Lord of the Divine Pavilion had intended to use the power of the Extraterritorial Race to pollute the space. Soon, it would become like a cage, trapping them within it.
"Gentlemen, let's strike together and tear this space apart, so that we can get out of this place. When word gets around later, the Lord of the Divine Pavilion will not be able to have any standing in the North Territory!" Demon Emperor shouted anxiously.
Many spiritual beings in The Great Thousand World were wary of the Extraterritorial Race. Once the Lord of the Divine Pavilion displayed his means, the forces would attack him, and even the top forces outside of the North Territory would not simply stand by and watch such a thing happen.
"Let's attack together!"
Holy Ancestor and the rest came back to themselves and immediately struck together. A horrifying spiritual energy crystal rainbow whizzed out, hitting the devilish black smoke.
When their attack hit the black smoke, it dispersed. However, in just a while, the black smoke swirled out again, only to pollute the area even more! When Holy Ancestor and the other Earthly Sovereigns saw this, they turned pale.
"Hohoho, stop wasting your time. I have advanced to Upper Earthly Sovereign, and with the power of Sky-Devouring Evil Emperor, all of you are no match for me. You are only Lower Earthly Sovereigns!" The Lord of the Divine Pavilion said, as he stood outside of the vicinity of the black smoke.
Mu Chen gasped, when he saw the power of an Upper Earthly Sovereign. He then turned his head to look at Mandela, who looked pale.
"Is there any way to counter him?" Mu Chen asked softly.
"His strength has increased tremendously. Even if I join forces with the other Earthly Sovereigns, we can only protect ourselves. He has activated the power of Sky-Devouring Evil Emperor. If he continues to pollute the spatial spiritual energy, we will be trapped and ultimately die here," Mandela gritted her teeth and said. "We are not powerful enough. If we have one additional Earthly Sovereign, we will be able to break through the deadlock."
Although an Upper Earthly Sovereign was powerful, there was a limit to one's power. If there were more Lower Earthly Sovereigns, they would be able to contend with the Lord of the Divine Pavilion.
When Mu Chen heard her words, he smiled wryly. All of the Earthly Sovereigns had gathered in this place, and there was no way to get another one to come here. Earthly Sovereigns were rare.
As Mu Chen thought of this, he suddenly froze. He squinted his eyes and looked into the distance.
Is the spiritual puppet above the Rocky Island not an Upper Earthly Sovereign?
If it can be led here, it should be able to deal with the Lord of the Divine Pavilion.
However, the spiritual puppet can only defend, and it cannot leave the Rocky Island.
Mu Chen frowned, then continued to ponder for a while. He suddenly grabbed his fist, and a dark triangular object appeared in his hand. It was the mysterious Black Triangular Iron that he had obtained earlier, so it must be closely related to the Sovereign Secret Treasure! If it were not so, it would not have assisted him in capturing the ancient earthen vessel! Although Mu Chen was not sure that it would be useful, he could only try in such a dire situation.
Mu Chen took a deep breath and immediately flicked it out. The black iron turned into a ray of black light, then shot out at lightning speed, heading toward the spiritual puppet.
Mu Chen fixed his gaze on the black light that had shot out, his heart thumping extremely fast. They would be in a very dangerous situation, if this did not work!
