10 days were too short for anyone to do anything useful. However, Luo Yunyang was able to progress further in his cultivation, as he had just ended his Martial Path Heavenly Tribulation.
In particular, not only did the law fragments left behind during his Martial Path Heavenly Tribulation allow him to further fortify the foundation of four of his Origin Source Laws, but the chaotic hole force made up of the four Origin Source Laws was also greatly improved.
However, Luo Yunyang appeared rather lazy right now.
The reason for that was that Luo Yunyang had transferred all his Mind Attribute Points to the Chaotic Four-Origin Beast.
In the past, Luo Yunyang had been borrowing attribute points from the Chaotic Four-Origin Beast. However, now, it was the other way around.
This was because Luo Yunyang’s cultivation had become much stronger than the Chaotic Four-Origin Beast’s. The Chaotic Four-Origin Beast’s rate of devouring precious resources had increased after receiving the extra attribute boost Luo Yunyang had given it.
In other words, the rate at which the Chaotic Four-Origin Beast would attain the Celestial Domain Grade accelerated several times just because it devoured precious resources.
Although completing its advancement within 10 years would be tough, this was still good news for Luo Yunyang.
Of course, Luo Yunyang also placed the Five-Element World Tree he had transformed into the shape of a small tree in his palms in order to ensure his safety.
“Greetings, Ancestral Master.” Gu Mingping and Yin Feihuan, along with the 3,000 disciples of the Donghua Ancient Sect, greeted him respectfully.
Although the Donghua Ancient Sect had gained plenty of territories, the number of its disciples was still very small. Thus, they did not have enough people to govern the new territories.
Everyone in the Donghua Ancient Sect was stretched thin, as each person had to handle the workload of 10.
However, even so, every disciple of the Donghua Ancient Sect managed to gather early outside the cave where Luo Yunyang was training in seclusion to welcome the Ancestral Master when he ended his training.
Just as Gu Mingping and Yin Feihuan were leading their disciples in greeting their Ancestral Master, a bell rang 36 times.
On the Qianliu Star, this signified that a major event or occasion was occurring and everyone could celebrate together.
Luo Yunyang might have become the leader of the Human Tribe and a Heavenly Venerate during his 10 Reincarnation Cycles, but this was still the first time he received such grand treatment that was usually reserved for an Ancestral Master of a reputable sect. Although he knew that such a reception was nothing more than a form of appreciation, he still couldn’t help but feel his heart tingle while he enjoyed this comfortable euphoria.
“Don’t stand on ceremony.” Luo Yunyang gently waved the little tree in his hand and the five-element energy shrouded everyone present, helping them back on their feet.
The five-colored radiance coming from the Five-Element World Tree made Luo Yunyang seem very much like a Sect Master while he held the little tree in his hand.
After addressing the disciples, Luo Yunyang instructed most of them to leave, leaving just Gu Mingping, Yin Feihuan and some Galaxy-Grade elders behind.
After listening to some questions raised by Yin Feihuan, Luo Yunyang instructed, “As the Sect Master, I task you with handling all the affairs of the sect. You do not need to report matters to me unless they are related to the survival of our sect.”
Yin Feihuan felt extremely grateful for Luo Yunyang’s confidence and trust in her. She knew that although Luo Yunyang was determined to manage the Donghua Ancient Sect’s territories well, he wasn’t really interested in nurturing their disciples.
“Have you gathered the information on the Burial Plateau?” Luo Yunyang asked in a serious tone.
He was prepared to leave for the Burial Plateau upon finishing his training. However, even though he did not have a good feeling about the Burial Plateau, he still couldn’t give up his Heavenly Venerate True Body.
“Ancestral Master, I was about to make a relative report. Something big happened on the Burial Plateau.” Yin Feihuan immediately presented her report to Luo Yunyang.
Everything about the event that had happened on the Burial Plateau was documented in the report. Luo Yunyang almost cursed out loud when he saw the details on the Heavenly Venerate Remains.
Remains?! It’s my damn body and I’m here to retrieve it. What on earth are you people excited about?
If possible, Luo Yunyang wouldn’t hesitate to smack them into their graves. However, after looking at the report, which also documented the informants, he could only collect his feelings and keep them in his heart.
Although those people weren’t Ninth-Level Heavenly Venerates, most of them were at least Sixth-Level Heavenly Venerates.
The Guardian Protector of the Black Sky Dynasty was a peak Eighth-Level Heavenly Venerate.
It was tough for Luo Yunyang to estimate how strong that Heavenly Venerate was. Hence, he decided to operate slowly around those high-level figures.
“The Heavenly Venerate Remains are indeed a rare opportunity. I’m going to head over to the Burial Plateau. Gu Mingping, Yin Feihuan, both of you will handle the sect’s affairs. Feel free to contact me if you need to.”
Luo Yunyang made his decision firmly.
The few elders who didn’t speak at all appeared stunned by Luo Yunyang’s decision.
Luo Yunyang didn’t need any mind-reading skills to know what those elders were thinking. They probably believed that their Ancestral Master was insane. Who would wrestle with those mighty figures for such a precious treasure?
Although the Donghua Ancient Sect had been gaining plenty of momentum and was in the midst of an uprising, back in its prime, it had still only been the strongest among the weakest sects in the eyes of those mighty figures.
“Ancestral Master, this disciple has to say something.” A middle-aged man stepped forward and prostrated on the ground before adding, “Ancestral Master, you’ve just returned from your reincarnation, so our sect is not at a very important juncture.”
“I believe that if you led us personally with all of your effort for 300 years, the Donghua Ancient Sect would surely establish itself again in the Mysterious Great Sky Land.”
“The Heavenly Venerate Remains are a supreme treasure. Not only are they useless for a small sect like ours, but they might even cause a catastrophe to befall our sect. Please reconsider, Ancestral Master!”
Luo Yunyang had a faint impression of the elder who was prostrating on the floor. His name was Li Zhenru and he was Gu Mingping’s disciple.
Although the elder’s words were reasonable, Luo Yunyang would never heed this advice. After all, he was there because of his Heavenly Venerate True Body.
Luo Yunyang never thought of arguing or trying to convince the elder. He merely shot a glance at Li Zhenru before saying, “I’ve made up my mind. I’ll leave in half an hour.”
The empty hall went silent for a moment. Li Zhenru felt extremely wronged. All he could do was quiver before Luo Yunyang’s imposing manner.
Sincere advice jarred one’s ears!
“If you have decided to do this, I better accompany you. I have roamed the Mysterious Great Sky Land for a long time and know some friends. They might have some news that you would be interested in.” Yin Feihuan hesitated for a moment before offering her assistance.
From a rational point of view, she agreed with Li Zhenru’s opinion. After all, it was not easy for them to expect an Ancestral Master capable of reviving their sect to arrive. It would be disastrous for their sect if their Ancestral Master met a mishap.
However, she felt helpless now that she knew that Luo Yunyang had made his decision. Hence, she decided to accompany Luo Yunyang personally. After all, she had at least made some friends while roaming the Mysterious Great Sky Land.
They should be able to make things easier for her Ancestral Master.
Although Luo Yunyang didn’t want to bring too many people with him, after listening to Yin Feihuan, he agreed. “Alright then, let’s get going.”
After a quarter of an hour, Luo Yunyang, Yin Feihuan and hundreds of Donghua Ancient Sect disciples boarded the best flying ship available in the sect and flew towards the Mysterious Great Sky Land.
The flying ship still looked exactly like a normal ship. However, the way it flew in the sky was akin to a flying dragon. It was shrouded by a dazzling glow as it sped through the void.
According to Yin Feihuan’s introduction, the keel of the ship was made of a sacred wood that had been found in the depths of a dragon nest. Because of it, the flying ship was exceptionally fast.
The flying ship traveled through countless voids in just half a day. While standing on the deck of the flying ship, Luo Yunyang started to see the seemingly border-less Mysterious Great Sky Land.
Spirit energy emerged from the earth like a torrent and gushed out towards the outskirts of the void. After sensing the dense spirit energy, Luo Yunyang finally understood why all the sects in the galaxy yearned for a mountain in the Mysterious Great Sky Land.
Yin Feihuan was holding onto a jade pendant, trying her best to get in contact with her friends. After half an hour, she rushed towards Luo Yunyang and greeted him. “Ancestral Master, the Sky Land Valley is currently sealed by a Heavenly Venerate Imperial Order.”
“We must obtain an entry pass to enter the Burial Plateau. Most of the martialists that want to enter the Burial Plateau have gathered in Tianlan City. They are all waiting for their entry passes.”
The Sky Land Valley was the only safe way into the Burial Plateau. Although the Burial Plateau was extremely vast, there was no other safe route. Any other place would be extremely dangerous and full of spatial cracks.
Even a Heavenly Venerate would have difficulty ascending the Sky Burial Plateau without going through the Sky Land Valley.
When Luo Yunyang’s spirit consciousness roamed the land, he had a feeling that the Burial Plateau was not a plateau but a huge sacred corpse.
Luo Yunyang didn’t want to stand out too much before seeing the small boat. Hence, after listening to what Yin Feihuan had said, he decided to obtain an entry pass into the Burial Plateau.
The flying ship flew for another half a day after locking onto Tianlan City’s coordinates. Very soon, a city appeared in front of Luo Yunyang and his crew.
“Feihuan, when did you get a new senior brother again? I think you should advise him to go back with your sect disciples. This is not a place for small sects like yours!”
A three-colored light came through the sky, transforming into a beautiful woman. When she landed, she ignored Luo Yunyang completely and only spoke to Yin Feihuan.
She actually sounded like she was preaching!
