As Minghe and Red Lotus Taoist both approved of what Taoist of Heaven and Earth had said, they made a Prediction together and found that there was no problem, so they made up their minds to give it a try. If successful, the world of Heaven and Earth could further improve. Then it would be close to transforming to the small chiliocosm.
Ming He still needed to be cautious about this. His Blood of Essence of the Twelve Ancestors of Sorcery and the Twelve Divine Beings Killing Formation, which were the most precious treasures of the Wu Tribe, once they are known by the people outside, would inevitably cause a great stir in Untainted Land. At this juncture, Minghe would prefer to keep things in quiet and peace rather than run into anything unexpected.
The Blood River Formation was fully engaged now, shrouding over the whole of the Blood Sea. The outside world, at least those in a lower cultivation than Sage, could never hint at the happenings inside. As for Goddess Nvywa, Sage though she was, she would not intrude, to avoid aggravating him.
After the Formation enclosed the Blood Sea, Minghe together with his Good Separation and Evil Separation came near to the core area of the Blood Sea, which contained the most precious blood, the blood of the Wu Tribe. It was brought there by the Blood River Formation in case of an emergency. They never thought it would actually be used.
Minghe waved his hand and summoned out the Cauldron of Heaven and Earth. To make twelve Mazingers, they needed to refine the Twelve Divine Beings Banner. Since each of the Twelve Ancestors of Sorcery had only one drop of Blood of Essence, it would be an all or nothing attempt for Minghe. He had to put forth all his efforts to ensure the best result, as one mistake would invite irrevocable consequences.
All kinds of materials were thrown into the Cauldron of Heaven and Earth as soon as it fired up. These materials were the most precious ones collected by Minghe. During ordinary times, he would add, at most, a small portion of them to refine his treasures. However, this time he invested all the best materials in hand in the hope for the best fruit.
While Minghe was occupied in refining the Twelve Stick Divine Beings Banner, Taoist of Heaven and Earth and Red Lotus Taoist were also busy in the Enlightenment of the Twelve Divine Beings Killing Formation with the Magical Tao Mirror. Once the Divine Beings Banner was made, the Blood of Essence of the Twelve Ancestors of Sorcery should be injected, and most importantly, those stripes and streaks of the Twelve Divine Beings Killing Formation needed to be engraved on it.
It took a deep comprehension of the Formation to engrave stripes and streaks on the Twelve Divine Beings Killing Formation, as a tiny mistake could ruin everything. The refining of the Divine Beings Banner took Ming He quite some time. However, for Taoist of Heaven and Earth and Red Lotus Taoist, time was quite abundant. Already in the Realm of the Origin, Red Lotus Taoist was very quick in the Enlightenment of the Formation.
Eighty-one years later, Minghe, looking at the Cauldron of Heaven and Earth, commanded, "Congeal!" Within the Cauldron of Heaven and Earth, twelve slews of liquid began to congeal. Before long, the Twelve Stick Divine Beings Banner began to take shape.
"It's your turn, now," screamed Minghe. Heaven and Earth Taoist and Red Lotus Taoist jumped into action on hearing his words. Taoist of Heaven and Earth injected the twelve Blood of Essence from the Ancestors of sorcerer into the Divine Beings Banner respectively, while Red Lotus Taoist engraved the stripes and streaks on the Divine Beings Banner with the supernatural power of the Origin.
Another 49 days had passed, Red Lotus Taoist finally finished his part. Again, Minghe commanded, "Divine Beings Banner, out!" Within an instant, the Twelve Stick Divine Beings Banner flew out of the Cauldron of Heaven and Earth, fluttering aloft.
Made with the united power of Minghe and his Good Separation and Evil Separation, one of whom had already reached the Origin, the Twelve Stick Divine Beings Banner was as powerful as could be imagined, let alone all the top materials used and the stripes and streaks of the Twelve Divine Beings Killing Formation that were engraved during the process.
As expected, the Twelve Stick Divine Beings Banner turned out to be of superior quality after the refinement. Each of them reached the level of a Top Grade Primordial Spiritual Treasure. Once combined, they were equal to a Primordial Spiritual Treasure, which only occurred once before. He had gotten the Magical Tao Mirror last time by sheer chance.
Taoist of Heaven and Earth had finished the first step of making the Divine Beings Banner. During the second stage, also the most crucial one, Red Lotus Taoist supervised and commanded the Blood River Formation in person, making it impossible for any outsider to spy on it, even Goddess Nvywa.
Besides, Red Lotus Taoist could quell down any chaos that arose during the refinement of the twelve Mazingers with his supernatural power together with the Formation and the Blood Sea. What worried Minghe was that the Divine Beings Banner might explode out of a mistake. Once exploded, the twelve Top Grade Primordial Spiritual Treasures would unleash a power unimaginable and beyond control.
With everything ready, Minghe waved his hand and the Twelve Stick Divine Beings Banner fell upon the Blood Sea. Minghe suddenly felt their strong desire to devour the blood beneath, which was a good sign.
Minghe did not restrict their innate power. Instead, he lifted the limit on the Blood Sea from the Blood River Formation. The limit was initially made to separate blood from different clans so that the Blood Sea was actually divided into unconnected patches while appearing to be intact.
As soon as the limit was relieved, the Twelve Stick Divine Beings Banner began to move and act like a blood pump. Twelve jets of blood soared high into the sky and dropped on the Twelve Stick Divine Beings Banner respectively, which kept sucking in blood from the Wu Tribe.
Minghe found that the Twelve Stick Divine Beings Banner did not devour blood indiscriminately. Instead, they chose specific blood. There were twelve major tribes among the Wu Tribe, led by twelve commanders, and those in the same tribe had similar kind of blood with their commander. That was also the way of differentiating tribes.
The Divine Beings Banner also devoured blood of their own kind. With more and more blood being sucked, the twelve Mazingers on the Divine Beings Banner began to take shape, which looked the same as the Twelve Ancestors of Sorcery.
In the blink of an eye, the body of the twelve Mazingers had totally solidified, and they began to devour blood even faster. They roared upwards and struggled to get free.
During the process, the breath of the twelve Mazingers became increasingly forceful, and beyond that, more and more Evil Spirit was attracted and merged into the Divine Beings Banner as a tonic for the twelve Mazingers.
Minghe realized that the blood of the Wu Tribe was decreasing quickly. According to the situation, the blood might dry up even before the twelve Mazingers entirely took shape. However, if he gave up halfway, all the efforts made so far would be wasted, so the only way out was to continue what he had been doing and wait.
Minghe waved his hand again and the limit on a core area near the blood of the Wu Tribe was breached. Endless blood poured into the blood of the Wu Tribe to replenish the loss. Minghe valued it greatly, as it was a mix of the blood of Pangu and Rakshasa. Besides, it was also the area where the Origin of the Blood Sea was kept.
However, he had to make some sacrifice in order to get what he wanted. As soon as the blood in the core area flowed in, the Twelve Stick Divine Beings Banner scrambled for it, which was even superior to the blood of the Wu Tribe.
The Killing Intent of Heaven and Earth thronged to the Blood Sea once again, drawing the attention of all the creatures in Untainted Land. However, as the Blood Sea had long been isolated by the Blood River Formation, they could by no means penetrate through their Spiritual Thoughts, neither would they hint at anything that happened inside. Besides, Red Lotus Taoist had warned them before with his Spiritual Thoughts, so no one would have the courage to defy him.
