A/N: I changed the name of the Devour Technique to Heaven's Void Technique.
Sora has traveled over all of the Draconic Ruins Realm for the past couple of weeks.
He has visited all the sects, all the cities, all villages, and even some clans.
He has gotten many cultivation techniques, secret techniques, materials, stuff called Deity Roots which can help produce some stones and essences that boosts cultivation tremendously. He has gotten many patterns and many books that can contain hidden knowledge.
Yet he hasn't gotten any useful artifacts in any of these places. Nor has he found the location of the place that contains the powerful artifacts and cultivation techniques.
Whoever hid them away made sure to really get rid of most evidence, but Sora wasn't going to give up that easily.
After doing some research, Sora realized that he has yet to go to some dungeons and ruins.
Although there is a lack of ruins and dungeons, Sora is sure to find some valuable stuff there.
He set on his journey to travel to all these ruins and dungeons, yet he found nothing besides a book that finally revealed the place of the collection of artifacts, cultivation techniques, and valuable items and knowledge.
However, before going there, Sora decided to visit the last ruin that he hasn't explored yet.
He stepped inside the ruin and already felt that something good was going to happen inside the ruins.
'Has my luck been so shit because I haven't been able to do the deed with my beloved Goddess of Luck, Tyche??' Sora asked himself jokingly.
He walked around the ruins and uncovered many artifacts which he uses as either materials, or reforges them, into better artifacts for his wives.
Slowly and steadily, he increased his experience with refining, blacksmithing, artifact making, and glyph/rune/inscription/etc. Work. With his talent, affinity, and potential for everything being very high, Sora made exceptional progress.
Sora's ears raised themselves in awareness as he felt a certain power emanate from an item placed inside a case hidden underneath the floorboard.
'Interesting...' smirked Sora as he took out the case and held it in his hands.
He blew the dust off the case and cleaned it before reading the letters inscribed on top of the case, 'Myriad Miles Rivers and Mountains Painting?'
Reading the name of the item that is inside the case, Sora felt rather interested in the thing inside. He knew his instincts were taking him to the right place when he wanted to explore the last place he hadn't explored in all of Draconic Ruins Realm.
Hearing the wind blow into the ruins, Sora put away the case before finishing exploring the ruins. He didn't find anything worthwhile besides a paintbrush that was of high quality.
Sora decided to use it as his primary tool for painting, so he kept it in his Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal.
After exiting the ruins, Sora was rather disappointed that he only found two items in all of the Draconic Ruins Realm that interested him. Especially since Draconic Ruins Realm has 3,000 Subsidiary Domains under its control/protection.
'Doesn't matter now. I just hope that this place I found has the items that will definitely gain my interest,' said Sora rather glumly.
He put some distance between himself and the ruins before pulling out the little case and opening it.
'A scroll?' thought Sora.
He ran his hands over the parchment of the scroll that seemed like it was new and was never used, but Sora's instincts as a painter was pulled by the scroll.
'Could it be?'
Sora grabbed the scroll from the case and unrolled it before seeing a wonderful drawing of Rivers and mountains as far as the eye can see. Many plants, herbs, and other agriculture littered the mountains and the sides of the rivers.
Although Sora was very amazed by the painting itself, Sora was more shocked at the inscription patterns that seemed to seal and lock something about the painting.
With a discerning eye and all his knowledge on inscription patterns and patterns, Sora placed the painting on the floor and drew one inscription pattern next to it before being blinded by a light coming from the painting itself.
A couple of seconds passed, but Sora can already feel major differences in the painting from earlier and the one now.
Sora felt spatial fluctuations surround the painting before being absorbed by the painting.
He even felt a small connection to the painting, one very similar to his Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal.
Sora quickly grabbed the painting and began refining his connection to it and then the connection between both the painting and his Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal.
Time passes, and after 4 days, Sora manages to make a strong and stable connection between the painting and his Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal, letting them function together.
Sora even felt his Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal enter the fourth level!
He didn't check the stuff he received from attaining the fourth level, instead, he went to check the painting which was still on his hand.
He sent his consciousness into it and felt his whole body being sucked into it. By the time he knew it, he was inside the painting, surrounded by very rich energy, vast mountains as far as the eyes can see, and long streaming rivers gently flowing.
Sora saw many agriculture that he had knowledge of, although a very small fraction, it was amazing nonetheless. He tried sensing the end of the space, but failed to do so.
So with a smile, Sora quickly summoned many shadow clones and made them plant as many herbs, plants, trees, etc. as they could inside the painting.
He inspected what he could do with the painting and found that he can put artifacts, items, objects, and materials in it to nourish them and let them grow in power and quality slowly.
And even if it took a thousand years, Sora had his Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal to speed up the process.
After he planted as much as he could and put a single drop from the Spirit Pool on each agriculture, Sora dispelled the shadow clones and entered the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal.
He looked around, and before he got to doing anything, he put the Myriad Miles Rivers and Mountains Painting in the air and unrolled.
He looked at it happily as he felt both the painting and his Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal benefit from this.
Sora had a feeling that besides the energy inside the painting becoming denser and the energy inside the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal becoming more rich, the space inside the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal was even expanded more.
He knew that the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal had leveled up, but he felt that from the connection of space between the painting and the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal, it's space expanded.
Even the space inside the painting benefits when it enters the place inside the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal. The space inside it flowed in the same time ratio as the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal.
Sora was about to exit his Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal, until he remembered about every material, artifact, item, and especially the Deity Roots. He grabbed them all and placed them inside the painting, which contained the ability to nourish anything.
Something which wasn't shared between both the painting and the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal.
Even the Mythril was chucked in the painting.
Sora turned to look at the stone monument and inspected was he received this time around. It's been so long since the last time he ever received anything from the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal.
If he was just a bystander, that time would have been only 2,000 years, but for him, it has been even more than that.
What caught Sora's eyes first, was a new tree that is similar to the Tree of Strength, Agility, and Defense. This tree was the Tree of Physicality.
He was intrigued by it, until he remembered that the Tree of Physicality only increased the eaters age by 50 years. The only good thing about it was being able to use it as an alchemy ingredient.
He already had the peach tree from Xi Wangmu. Which had already matured a year ago, giving him 10 peaches, which he hasn't used yet due to having no use for them. He was saving them to give them to his other family members, like Goku, Gohan, Frisk, Yamamoto, and even the bird Ying.
He looked at the next item and saw that he received another medicinal beast like the Medicinal Turtle from before. This time it was a clam.
He didn't even bother looking for it, he went to the next item on the list and saw that it is a 10,000 year old Chinese Parasol Tree. There wasn't much of nothing about it, besides being very resistant to fire to a very high degree.
Sora heard a high pitched screech and looked at the next thing he received without bothering to look for what it was. He read the stone monument and was rather shocked that he received a Red Luan, a fiery bird with a hint of Phoenix Bloodline.
He finally turned to the screeching sound and was rather interested in the bird's bloodline. He had many alchemy recipes to increase the purity of bloodlines and even others that stimulate the hidden potential inside a beasts' body, which can even make a bloodline stronger.
As long as the beast grew in strength too, it would also slowly strengthen its own bloodline, but at a very weak and slow pace.
He kept his eyes on the bird and Sora eventually found out that he had a connection between it, like a servant and master relationship. It was an effect of the Divine Marionnette Pellet he was thinking of making before too, to connect the beast/being to the master, Sora.
Sora ignored the fiery bird and focused on the last two bushes; a Thyme and a Perilla.
Both can be used for his cooking in order to make better dishes, side dishes, sauce, etc.
Sora left all of that in there and exited his Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal.
'This painting is the best thing I have gotten in all my lifetime, besides the system and the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal,' chuckled Sora.
He brought out the fiery bird since he doesn't want it to remain within the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal.
The fiery bird has the same level of cultivation as Sora, body cultivation wise.
Although the same can't be said about the essence/Qi cultivation and the soul cultivation, which slightly shocked Sora. The fiery bird was sitting at a Legend Rank level and its essence/Qi cultivation was around Profound Ascension Realm, the same as its body cultivation.
Sora wasn't sure if the fiery bird would have this type of strength due to him influencing the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal or it would have come out that strong.
Either way, he's happy that there is a beast/being that's as strong, if not stronger, than him.
He left the fiery bird screeching and flying around happily all it wanted while he remained laying down on the floor.
He didn't just sit there doing nothing however, he was using this time to search for the world that he found in a ruin a couple days back.
It didn't mention a specific place where the 'treasure' will be when he goes to the world, but he had the time to do it.
Sora stood up from his place quickly and smiled happily.
'I found it pretty quickly!' thought Sora as he sent the fiery bird back into the Realm of the Violet Jade Immortal before focusing on the world.
'On to the next world to raid!'
To the Divine Continent, also known as Tiny World!
