Book 5 Chapter 39 Emperor Yu’s Gifts
Hearing the words, Teng Qingshan laughed. Emperor Yu had really been a womanizer.
“Besides the Emperor Yu’s Hall on the land of the Nine Prefectures, the other lineage is at the faraway North of North Sea!” Emperor Yu said, “At the northernmost of the endless North Sea, there is a vast continent. Of course, that continent is a lot smaller than the land of the Nine Prefectures and is probably the size of two prefectures. I called it the Northern Sea Continent.”
Teng Qingshan was slightly surprised.
The books never recorded that there was a Northern Sea Continent in the North of North Sea. Also, a land of two prefectures….was actually considered very big.
“That place is a lot colder than the land of the Nine Prefectures, and most of the Northern Sea Continent is completely covered with snow…….The population there is rather small. Our great land of the Nine Prefectures has a population of ten million while that Northern Sea Continent has only a population of a few million.” A smile appeared on Emperor Yu’s face, as he continued saying, “But the tribes there are very united, unlike the great tribes of the Nine Prefectures that always fought each other.”
Teng Qingshan pondered as he listened. During the era of Emperor Yu, the population of the land of the Nine Prefectures was over ten million, but the population should be nearly three hundred millions now.
Few thousands years have passed. Did the population of the Northern Sea Continent perish or become more prosperous?
But why didn’t any books record this Northern Sea Continent?
“My descendants at the Northern Sea Continent should be living in the Godly Axe Mountain.” Emperor Yu remarked emotionally, “Compared to Emperor Yu’s Hall, I am more worried of the Godly Axe Mountain at the Northern Sea Continent……Because the Northern Sea Continent has many disasters like the collapse of snowy mountains and the terrifying arrival of the cold current…….I couldn’t change these, because the core of the world was the land of the Nine Prefectures, and even the nine great sources of energy are here. The territorial waters and other places were a lot worse.”
Teng Qingshan nodded silently.
“However, the Northern Sea Continent was very far away from the land of the Nine Prefectures.” Emperor Yu said, “The northernmost land of the great land of the Nine Prefectures, which is around a hundred thousand Li to the north. The more you head north, the more dangerous the sea becomes. Even the demonic beasts couldn’t fly to the northernmost areas, therefore, you can only get to the Northern Sea Continent by boat!”
Teng Qingshan smiled helplessly as he thought, “Hundred thousand Li?”
The sea cannot be compared with the land. If the wind was by your side, one might travel over a thousand Li within a day and a night, but how could the wind and waters be by your side every day?
Teng Qingshan pondered and said, “If I really have to go, with my adaptability, getting to the Northern Sea Continent wouldn’t be very problematic.” Teng QIngshan travelled through boats, but even if the boats tumbled, he would be fine because Teng Qingshan could breath through his pores in the sea. Plus, he has a strong body and also swam very fast.
The Internal Martial Experts’ ability to survive in rough environment was very strong.
The Emperor Yu continued, “An innate expert with a boat built from good materials could reach the Northern Sea Continent within one to two years. When I travelled to the Northern Sea Continent, I had just reached the Emptiness Realm."
Teng Qingshan felt helpless as he thought, “Emperor Yu, why did you, an old man, go to the Northern Sea Continent? You even left a line of descent there!"
“In the past, the land of the Nine Prefectures was in a midst of chaos. I realized that it was very difficult to unite the world with the power of my Emptiness Realm. Therefore, I left my tribe and ventured the world alone……I went to the south of the Desolate Land and advanced to the end. I also went to the East Sea and travelled the islands on the sea.”
“I also went into the deserts, the west of the Nine Prefectures, and ventured the small countries in the desert.
“In the end, I headed north. I went through the vast great grassland and continued north until I reached the northernmost land. I then went on a boat……I just wanted to see the marvelous scenes of this vast world. On the sea, I travelled northward alone…… In the endless ocean, I felt I was the only one in this world. While I was on the sea for almost half a year, I understood something. From the Minute Subtlety of the Emptiness Realm, I stepped into the Insightful Emptiness Realm.” Emperor Yu said. “In the end, I found the Northern Sea Continent, a place with no tribal wars. I lived eighteen years of my life there and had wives and children.”
“Eighteen years later, I broke through the Insightful Emptiness Realm, and reached the Paramount Completion Realm.” Emperor Yu said, “During that time, the distance between Northern Sea Continent and the land of the Nine Prefectures was far, but it was nothing to me”
Teng Qingshan did a thumbs up in his heart as he thought, “Fierce! A family in the Northern Sea Continent and a family in the land of the Nine Prefectures.”
“The land of the Nine Prefectures has numerous heroes and is a place that boils the blood of men, while the Northern Sea Continent is very calm and peaceful.” Emperor Yu sighed emotionally, “Because I reached the Paramount Completion Realm, I could use my world to absorb the Spiritual Qi of Heaven and Earth and refine a kind of elixir I needed. Emperor Yu’s Hall calls this kind of elixir the Elixir of the North Sea, while it is called the Elixir of the Nine Prefectures by the Godly Axe Mountain of the Northern Sea Continent. However, my children did not know……of the existence of the other continent.”
Teng Qingshan was shocked, “The Elixir of the North Sea? The Elixir of the North Sea was actually refined by Emperor Yu through his world?”
In the book that recorded the treasures of the heavens and earth.
Besides Scarlet Fruit, Black Fire Spirit Fruit, Grass of Immortality, Bamboo Spirit Fruit, and Millennium Chalcedony, there was also one more——
Elixir of the North Sea: A drop of the Elixir of the North Sea could cause someone to reach the peak of the Postliminary Realm. The Dantian will be filled with the inner strength, and the meridians would go through a metamorphosis and become stronger and wider. Legend had it that such elixirs could be found in the depths of the North Sea. However, only Emperor Yu’s Hall had the Elixir of the North Sea.
“In the depth of the North Sea? Bullshit. Emperor Yu’s Hall spread false information. The Elixir of the North Sea was left by Emperor Yu.” Teng Qingshan knew clearly of how precious this Elixir of the North Sea was.
A drop of the Elixir of the North Sea was much more precious than a Scarlet Fruit.
The Elixir of the North Sea not only helped a person reach the peak of the Postliminary Realm but could also improve the meridians. A drop of the Elixir of the North Sea could produce an expert at the peak of the Postliminary Realm.
“Realm of the Omnipotent Experts are really marvelous.” Teng Qingshan praised. He also understood why Emperor Yu could build the Heavenly Flood Palace. Someone who had reached the Realm of the Omnipotent Experts possessed his own world, and thus, what couldn’t he build?
“If the Emperor Yu’s Hall at the land of the Nine Prefectures and the Godly Axe Mountain at the Northern Sea Continent are in trouble, I hope you can take care of them. If they no longer exist….then nevermind.” Emperor Yu sighed and said, “I won’t let you make this trip in vain. In these nine cauldrons…….Every year, as the entire Heavenly Flood Palace and the Splitting Mountain Axe revolve, each cauldron will have two or three more drops of the Elixir of the North Sea. The longer the time, the more the amount of the Elixir of the North Sea. This should be enough to build a powerful army for you.”
Teng Qingshan looked at the nine tripod cauldrons in the surrounding with a shocking expression.
“The reflection I saw previously was the Elixir of the North Sea?” Teng Qingshan was astonished as he said, “Two or three more drops are produced annually in each cauldron. Now that a few thousand years have passed, each cauldron should have over one thousand drops of the Elixir of the North Sea. The nine cauldrons should have a total of ten thousand drops.”
Qing Hu Island had a total of two thousand Golden Scale Guards!
An army formed with ten thousand First Rated Warriors?
Teng Qingshan couldn’t imagine an army like that. Even if it fought against over a hundred innate experts, the innate experts would all die.
“An invincible army…invincible army.” Teng Qingshan could feel his heart beating increasingly fast and immediately stretched his hand to open the cover.
“Eh? It can’t be opened?” Teng Qingshan realized that the surface of the cauldron cover had a then, faint gold coating.
“Haha, isn’t that exciting?” Emperor Yu laughed and said, “However, you shouldn’t be too excited. No matter how powerful an army is, it’s are just an army……In the land of the Nine Prefectures, it’s still your peerless martial strength that decides your fate. If you reach the Emptiness Realm, you can ignore the millions of soldiers and kill innate experts!”
Teng Qingshan regained his clarity as if a bucket of cold water had been poured on him.
“Yes. The Gui Yuan Sect obtained so much Elixir of the North Sea. If the other sects knew……the Gui Yuan Sect might face annihilation.” Teng Qingshan could guess the situation as he continued saying, “The Emptiness Realm Expert of the Gui Yuan Sect rarely showed his power. It might be because our Emptiness Realm Expert has just entered the Emptiness Realm and his ability is a lot weaker than the Emptiness Realm Experts of the other sects. The Gui Yuan Sect could barely protect itself, and thus, expanding would be very difficult.”
Like Mani Temple, Emperor Yu’s Hall, and the Ying Family, these sects must have powerful Emptiness Realm Experts.
It was completely possible for them to kill the Gui Yuan Sect’s Emptiness Realm Expert and take the Elixir of the North Sea.
“Plus…..how do I take the nine cauldrons away?’ Teng Qingshan frowned. Each cauldron was half the size of a human. Teng Qingshan only had two hands, so he had no power to take the nine cauldrons away. Teng Qingshan continued saying, “And…..the men of the other supreme sects are around. If I was found, the consequence would be unimaginable!”
The great amount of Elixir of the North Sea might seem amazing, but it was actually extremely troublesome. Firstly, it was extremely difficult to take it out. Secondly, even if he brought it back to the Gui Yuan Sect, the Gui Yuan Sect didn’t dare to use recklessly. It was like Emperor Yu’s Hall; Emperor Yu’s Hall had the Elixir of the North Sea but never established any great army.
This was because Emperor Yu’s Hall understood that they did not have enough power to remain at the peak. If their army was too powerful, Emperor Yu’s Hall would be targeted by all the other sects.
“The best way to use this Elixir of the North Sea…..should be the same as how Emperor Yu’s Hall used it. A small stream flows far, thus, the sect would be powerful for a long time.” Teng Qingshan understood this as he thought, “For a sect to obtain a higher status, it’s not based on an army but on a most powerful expert.
If a sect had a super omnipotent expert, uniting the world would be very easy.
“You are very disappointed? Haha. The most important thing is your own martial strength.” Emperor Yu laughed and said, “Therefore, my second gift is at the Godly Axe Mountain of the Northern Sea Continent.”
“Godly Axe Mountain?” Teng Qingshan frowned.
“Right, Godly Axe Mountain.” Emperor Yu said, “Take my Mountain Splitting Godly Axe in the future! These nine cauldrons are subdued by the Mountain Splitting Godly Axe……You wouldn’t be able to move the nine cauldrons. You can only take the nine cauldrons after you take the Mountain Splitting Godly Axe. Simultaneously……head to the Godly Axe Mountain with the Mountain Splitting Godly Axe. By that time, combine the Mountain Splitting Godly Axe and the symbols of the «Thirty-six Splitting Mountain Forms» I left on the Godly Axe Mountain. You could then learn my most powerful technique…..If you could understand twenty to thirty percent of the technique, you will be able to step into the Emptiness Realm! Don’t feel weird. This «Thirty-six Splitting Mountain Forms» is much more powerful than my «Nine Cauldrons Heavenly Book»."
Hearing this, Teng Qingshan froze for a second.
The «Nine Cauldrons Heavenly Book» was one of the four great manuals, but he had never heard of the «Thirty-six Splitting Mountain Forms».
Many people did not understand why Emperor Yu passed down the «The Heavenly Book of the Nine Cauldrons» when he himself used an axe. Now, Teng Qingshan understood why.
“With the Mountain Splitting Godly Axe and the «Thirty-six Splitting Mountain Forms», as long as you are an innate expert, no matter how dumb you are, you would definitely reach the Emptiness Realm within a hundred years without a problem. The intelligent ones will be able to reach the Emptiness Realm within twenty to thirty years.” Emperor Yu smiled as he said, “The Emptiness Realm…..Once you reach the Emptiness Realm, wouldn’t the vast world be under your control?”
Teng Qingshan laughed. This Emperor Yu is very sly indeed. With a plan like this…..It looked like he would have to go to the Northern Sea Continent.
The Emptiness Realm!
In the whole world, no one would dare to promise that you would step into the Emptiness Realm within a hundred years. However, Emperor Yu dared! Because he was Emperor Yu!
