Chapter 525: The Holy Light Sword Technique
Translator: GodBrandy Editor: Kurisu
After hearing about the 'grave of True Monarch Fifth Cultivator of True Virtue' and meeting the jade white lion Fourth Cultivator of True Virtue, Song Shuhang already suspected that there was a relationship between Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue and Venerable Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue.
Now, he discovered that Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue was extremely familiar with the ancient grave and capable of guiding them step by step through the whole thing. Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue gave spoilers left and right during the journey... 'there is a trap here', 'there is a treasure hidden there', 'there is something over there', and so on.
It was as if someone wanted to play a single player game but was forced to watch the whole walkthrough before starting... what was the point in playing the game now that they knew everything?! It was going to be extremely boring!
Song Shuhang and the others were in a similar situation right now.
The originally exciting and dangerous exploration of the ancient grave had turned into mere sightseeing.
However, they were able to obtain some small treasures thanks to Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue's spoilers.
Chu Chu obtained a 'demon slaying arrow', an object similar to a talisman. Once activated, the arrow could display a killing power that approached the Fifth Stage rank.
Yu Jiaojiao obtained a water-type treasure, the 'turtle pearl', which could allow her to keep her body wet. With this treasure, she didn't have to use magical techniques to preserve the level of moisture in her body while living on the dry land, allowing her to save a lot of energy.
Li Yinzhu obtained a bomb-shaped object. If thrown out, it would release toxic mist.
These objects weren't really something originally present in the grave of Venerable Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue... after all, it was the grave of a Venerable, and the treasures inside wouldn't be this weak.
All the treasures belonged to cultivators that entered the ancient grave to explore it. It was likely that they ran into something unexpected while exploring the grave and then left these things behind.
As for Song Shuhang... he obtained the volume of a sword technique!
It was the volume of a sword technique, something he had yearned for for a very long period of time!
It wasn't one of those ordinary sword techniques, either.
The name of the technique was Holy Light Sword Technique.
From the name, it didn't look like something that belonged to Chinese cultivators.
"That volume contains a fine sword technique. The style is very awe-inspiring, and the attack power is also good. There are six styles in total, from the Second to the Fourth Stage." Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue gave his evaluation of the volume of the sword technique.
But there was a small problem... the Holy Light Sword Technique wasn't something that had originated from China.
It was a sword technique that belonged to ancient Western paladins and was modified by a powerful cultivator after it spread to China.
The sword technique retained the same style and characteristics as the swordsmanship of Western paladins.
One could almost say that it was a sword technique born from the combined effort of China and the West.
However, a sword technique with such a style was hardly suitable for Chinese swordsmen.
Song Shuhang opened the volume of the Holy Light Sword Technique and shot a glance at the first page... First style: Evil Slashing Holy Sword. Sword chant: Holy light, that wicked one seems worth fighting!
After turning the page, Second style: Holy Cross Sword. Sword chant: Honorable opponent, let's fight for glory!
What the hell is this thing?
What's wrong with the chants of this sword technique?
Song Shuhang got the impulse of tearing the book to shreds.
But after pondering for a moment, he decided to keep it... in the end, it was still a sword technique, and he could practice it if he had free time.
Moreover, the Holy Light Sword Technique wasn't completely useless. One would develop muscles after practicing it.
And developing muscles could indirectly help a cultivator strengthen their constitution.
In the worst case, he could treat it as a body tempering cultivation technique.
Along the way, Song Shuhang and the others were able to avoid a large number of traps, easily get out of each maze, and escape most of the hidden dangers thanks to the living walkthrough called Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue.
In the end, the grave of Venerable Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue is something like your family's backyard, isn't that right, Senior Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue?
Song Shuhang was sure that they wouldn't have any problems reaching the depths of the ancient grave as long as Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue was with them.
But unfortunately, Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue wasn't able to keep spoiling from beginning to end...
After they passed through the outer area of the ancient grave and arrived at the core area, a total of seven different roads appeared in front of Song Shuhang and the others.
Chu Chu said, "There are seven different roads."
Yu Jiaojiao said, "Which road should we take?"
Song Shuhang looked toward Senior Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue and said, "Senior, which one should we take?"
"Cough~ At last, the small chick must leave the nest and soar into the sky. You can't always depend on your elders in life, it's time to make your own choices," Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue said with a serious expression on his face.
Song Shuhang said, "Alright... how do we choose, then? Shall we cast a vote or throw a branch?"
Chu Chu said, "Maybe let's throw a branch? It seems rather troublesome to cast a vote since there are seven different roads."
Yu Jiaojiao said, "I agree, let's throw a branch. Who feels lucky today should throw the branch."
Li Yinzhu grabbed Song Shuhang's clothes and didn't say anything.
Chu Chu replied, "I feel that my luck today is so-so. I'll pass."
Song Shuhang silently raised his head and said, "Don't look at me."
After all, unfortunate things happened to him on a regular basis. The fact that he was still alive was already a miracle!
"I'll give you a suggestion. Why do you want to throw a branch to choose the road? Since there are seven roads ahead, isn't it better if you separate and take one road each?" The nearby Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue couldn't help but remind them.
Song Shuhang was aware of what Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue was trying to do. Therefore, he said to the others, "In that case, should we take different roads?"
Yu Jiaojiao replied, "Alright, let's take different roads, then."
Chu Chu said, "Fine, let's split up, then. However... I feel that splitting up is a rather stupid thing to do! In horror movies, each time the main and the side characters split up in a dangerous situation, the side characters end up dying! At least they can take care of each other if they stay together."
"..." Song Shuhang.
"..." Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue.
In the end, Song Shuhang's group divided and each of them chose a different road.
After all, it was something that the living walkthrough Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue suggested. Everyone knew that he was related to the grave of Venerable Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue in one way or the other. Therefore, it was better to follow his advice.
Chu Chu chose the fifth road. She turned her head around and shot a glance at Li Yinzhu before entering the passage.
Yu Jiaojiao chose the second road.
Li Yinzhu chose the first road. Before entering, she looked at Song Shuhang with a longing expression on her face, very unwilling to leave him.
Song Shuhang chose the seventh road.
In the next moment, the forms of the four people disappeared within the several passages.
The jade white lion Fourth Cultivator of True Virtue licked its paws and said, "They are gone."
Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue said, "Such being the case, we should move as well. Fourth Cultivator of True Virtue, pay close attention to little friend Shuhang and the others and don't let them go overboard. When Fellow Daoist Thrice Reckless went overboard inside the grave of True Monarch Fifth Cultivator of True Virtue the last time, he almost lost his life."
Fourth Cultivator of True Virtue said, "I feel that it's rare to find someone as death-seeking as Thrice Reckless in the world."
Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue replied, "Better safe than sorry. Moreover, little friend Shuhang is also a member of the Nine Provinces Number One Group. In the past few days, while I was lurking inside the group, the other fellow daoists were discussing his dao names. Amongst the dao names that popped up, there was a certain 'Thrice Song Tyrannical Saber'. This dao name really reminded me of Thrice Reckless. Therefore, it's better to be a bit careful."
The jade white lion Fourth Cultivator of True Virtue said, "What you said is reasonable. I'll pay close attention to them."
