What was there to be done? This was practically humankind’s most pressing thought right now.
The world had undergone massive changes, the satellites had fallen, and the originally isolated space barrier had disappeared without a trace. The whole mankind was in a truly terrified state.
Meanwhile, Golden Eagles were spreading their wings and covering the sun, Diabolical Bulls were charging through the sky and shaking the earth, and 300-meter long snakes were terrifying people.
In one day, the entire world seemed to have entered a savage realm.
Shen’du, Mei’ya City, the Free Cities
All communications between the 37 cities had become extremely difficult. The entire Da Alliance was already close to being paralyzed.
Early in the morning in Chang’an, over 100 soldiers watched drowsily with a relaxed expression on their faces as the sun rose slowly.
It was finally over. A night of beastial attacks and apprehension was finally over. During the most dangerous time of the night, they had even seen thousands of wolf packs creeping over. However, these giant wolves, which had been bigger than rhinoceroses, had ultimately been led away soundlessly by the alpha wolf.
“Let’s return and grab a drink!” Soldiers invited the comrades they were close to out. Not a single one of the invited soldiers declined.
Life was short, so they wanted to have fun while they could. Nobody knew what accidents tomorrow would bring, so it was best to enjoy the present.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
The ground shook as the sound of drums reverberated from a distance. This violent shuddering motion was accompanied by a massive black bull that was charging over.
The two horns of the massive bull were like two large blades, while the bull’s terrifying aura made many people hold their breath.
Alarms rang out from the sensors that had just been repaired outside the city gates. Meanwhile, a purple light flashed, making people’s hearts tremble.
“It’s a Dark-Grade source beast! A Dark-Grade source beast!” some soldiers shouted in terror.
Dark-Grade source beasts were the equivalent of god-grade existences, so most people simply wouldn’t have any chance of surviving against such a beast.
The relaxed expressions of the soldiers, who had felt fortunate to survive, froze on their ashen faces. Things had just calmed down, when another onslaught began. Deep down they knew that their lives could be taken in a second by this huge Dark-Grade source beast.
The Flame Emperor and the other martial grandmasters in Chang’an City rushed out frantically at the sound of the alarms.
When they saw the huge powerful bull, they felt their throats go dry. Even though Chang’an City possessed taboo weapons, they feared that they wouldn’t be very effective against this bull, which was similar in size to the multi-colored tiger.
Moo! The massive bull blustered. When they heard its cry, the Flame Emperor and the others understood what the bull was saying.
1,000 source cores!
The massive bull wanted 1,000 source cores. This meant that it wanted the source cores of 1,000 martial masters. Every single martial master was an extremely precious asset of Chang’an City, so 1,000 martial masters were a large portion of the city’s fighting strength.
The Flame Emperor clenched his hands tightly. Even if he had to destroy the bull, he wouldn’t accept such an unreasonable request.
After all, each martial master was a source of hope for the Da Alliance and humanity.
The massive bull roared angrily with a voice that shook the sky before it started to rise into the air. As each hoof stepped out, the trembling motion of the earth intensified.
“Diabolical Bull! What are you trying to do?” A faint voice rang out in the sky.
When he heard Luo Yunyang’s voice, the Flame Emperor immediately felt a burden lift off his mind. He let out a deep sigh of relief. Now that Luo Yunyang was there, he wouldn’t need to worry much.
The massive bull that had been charging maniacally nearly fell to the ground in its haste to stop. Its two huge eyes were filled with fear as it looked over at Luo Yunyang.
Suddenly, the Diabolical Bull that had made the entire city tremble in fear quickly crept to the ground and mooed.
“We actually meet again, Great King! Oh Great King!”
The bull’s words stunned everyone. Although they all respected Luo Yunyang, they had never expected that the Diabolical Bull would actually call humanity’s strongest fighter a Great King.
Luo Yunyang had also never imagined that he would encounter the Primordial Diabolical Bull there.
Back when he had entered the dimensional fracture, he had relied on his strength in order to become the king of an area. The Primordial Diabolical Bull had been the first subject that had pledged its allegiance to him.
However, Luo Yunyang had gained few benefits, so he hadn’t expected that after returning from the dimensional fracture, he would actually run into the Primordial Diabolical Bull there.
“What are you doing here?” Luo Yunyang asked.
“My king, the Great Emperor Lord has ordered us to occupy new territories so I’ve come running over here!” The Primordial Diabolical Bull, which revered Luo Yunyang replied loudly without hesitation.
Great Emperor Lord? Who was this?
The Primordial Diabolical Bull seemed to sense Luo Yunyang’s confusion, so it replied, “The Great Emperor Lord is our joint boss. He is a Heaven-Grade source beast! The The Great Emperor Lord is a Dark Ice Devil Leopard!” Although the Primordial Diabolical Bull’s last words were transmitted directly into Luo Yunyang’s ear, he could still hear the trepidation and fear in its voice.
A Heaven-Grade source beast?
When Luo Yunyang had entered the dimensional fracture, he had only relied on his Great Elemental Divine Eye and used power close to an Earth-Grade source beast, yet this Great Emperor Lord that the Primordial Diabolical Bull was speaking of was actually a Heaven-Grade source beast.
“Come with me!” After pondering this for a bit, Luo Yunyang led the Primordial Diabolical Bull to a mountainside outside Chang’an.
“Tell me what happened exactly.” Luo Yunyang wanted to hear about the changes of the earth from a source beast’s point of view. Therefore, he ordered the bull to explain everything.
“I have no idea what happened either, but this expanse of land merged with the Divine Beast Wasteland and became a part of it. According to some beings close to the Great Emperor Lord, great opportunities lie in the land that has recently merged with the Divine Beast Wasteland. Therefore, the 10 Great Emperor Lords want to take control of these new lands. We were dispatched to invade and occupy these territories!”
A serious look appeared on Luo Yunyang’s face as he waited for the Primordial Diabolical Bull to finish speaking. It would have been fine if it had just been one Heaven-Grade source beast, but this actually involved 10 Heaven-Grade source beasts.
Plus, the bull had also mentioned some great opportunities.
“What great opportunities?” Luo Yunyang knew that the heart of this problem would probably lie in these great opportunities, so he wanted to understand what was going on.
“I really don’t know, Great King. Even if you skin me and turn me to stew, I will still have nothing to comment. I really don’t know what sort of great opportunities these are!”
The Primordial Diabolical Bull shook its skull as it added, “However, I’ve heard that these great opportunities contain some secrets that could allow Heaven-Grade source beasts to ascend grades. He he”
Luo Yunyang swatted the bull’s skull as he said, “Then tell me what these Great Emperor Lords want from humans.”
This time, the Primordial Diabolical Bull answered readily, “Submit to us and you will prosper; oppose us and you will perish. Humans are just food, so some kings have told us to get ready to round up humans and eat them!”
As it said this, the bull’s heart suddenly shuddered. Its two front hooves danced up frantically while it said, “Your subordinate has no intention of doing this, Great King. I have turned over a new leaf ever since I met you. I definitely wouldn’t do such a thing!”
Luo Yunyang didn’t say anything. He just glanced back at Chang’an City. The ruined city didn’t seem to have any fortifications, so it might not even be able to withstand the attack of a source beast of the Primordial Diabolical Bull’s level, let alone the attack of a Great Emperor Lord.
Taking his family away so they could live free naturally wouldn’t be a problem. What would happen to everyone else, though?
If he had been unable to help them, Luo Yunyang would naturally only have thought of himself. However, he had become humankind’s strongest fighter by now, so the way he approached problems like this had unconsciously started to change.
“What should I do if I want to preserve the entire human race?” Luo Yunyang asked the Primordial Diabolical Bull.
The bull’s eyes widened, and it paused for a while before it muttered, “If you want to save all these people, it’s possible, but your entire race isn’t restricted to a region controlled by a king.”
“Are you implying that I can’t do this?” Luo Yunyang said frostily as he stared at the bull.
The Primordial Diabolical Bull, which noticed that Luo Yunyang was displeased, felt as though a knife had been stabbed into its neck. Its whole body shivered. Damn it, the Great King seemed even more terrifying than when it had first become his subordinate!
“Please don’t misunderstand, Great King. In my eyes, you have no rival. However your objective is too great. In order to achieve your objective, only a blood battle between races would work!” The Primordial Diabolical Bull started to stutter worriedly. “Indeed, only a blood battle between races would would”
The stuttering bull was trembling from head to toe as it said, “I have said the wrong thing, I have said the wrong thing You shouldn’t believe what I just said!”
The more Luo Yunyang interacted with the Primordial Diabolical Bull, the more he felt that this fellow was trying to play tricks on him. He immediately put on an imposing air and said, “Explain to me clearly what a blood battle between races is! If I sense you trying to deceive me in the slightest, I will bury your body right here! You decide how you want things to go!”
“Great King, a blood battle between races is When a race feels that it can struggle free from the control of the 10 Great Emperor Lords and become become the 11th strongest race in the Divine Beast Wasteland, it can issue a challenge.”
Suddenly, the Primordial Diabolical Bull shivered. “The challenger has to face the challenges of the 10 great races and emerge victorious from all 10 battles. Only this way will this race become the strongest one and not suffer any bullying. It can also be allocated a region and become one of the 10 Great Emperor Lords!”
