This matrix that was currently being cast at the Heavenly Mandate Academy would connect the Heavenly Mandate Academy with the three superpowers, as well as other peak principalities in the Heavenly Mandate Realm.
Therefore, should any troubles arose, the teleportation matrix could be initiated immediately, and mutual assistance could be rendered instantly.
This way, the position of the Heavenly Mandate Academy could be secured, and no other force would dare to provoke it with impunity.
Aside from that, the three major forces were also in discussion with Lord Taixuan and Ye Futian for more cultivators to come and cultivate at the Heavenly Mandate Academy. Their future generations would come to see the Heavenly Mandate Academy as their main place of cultivation, a place for emerging excellence. Naturally, Ye Futian was in agreement with this proposal.
His purpose for building the Heavenly Mandate Academy was also in the hopes that it would become a holy land for spreading the Way and exert influence on the Three Thousand Realms of the Great Path.
In addition, they were also building some other grand matrices for cultivation purposes, as well as defensive matrices. However, this type of matrices had no practical purposes, as no great powers would take the risk to provoke the Heavenly Mandate Academy, given its current strength.
But for now, no one in the Nine Realms had been able to set up a super matrix that could transcend the realm of Renhuang. If such a matrix was possible, then this person could traverse the 3,000 Realms of the Great Path at will. After all, anyone who could set up this kind of matrix probably was already at the top of his power.
Besides, an ancient tree for seeking the Way had appeared in the Heavenly Mandate Academy. It was planted by Dou Zhao. He planted the sacred tree taken from the Gods relic in the Heavenly Mandate Academy.
Of course, the expansion of the Heavenly Mandate Academy was inevitable. After all, the future of the Heavenly Mandate Realm could already be foreseen.
The news of the battle at the Shen clan finally spread throughout the Nine Realms and became a topic of conversation among all the Nine Supreme Imperial Realms. After this battle, all the major principalities quieted down, and there were no more conflicts.
As powerful as the Shen clan, they could only swallow this shame for now, for they could do nothing for the time being.
Unless the situation was truly desperate, no one would choose mutual destruction.
These days, many had come to pay their respect at the Heavenly Mandate Academy. Naturally, they were all from the top principalities, such as the cultivators from the Shangxiao Divine Palace. Other powers in the Higher Heavens Realm, such as the Divine Sword Li Family and Youyue Divine Palace in the Shadow Realm that had once come to congratulate them, were here once again. This time, even the goddess Chang Xi was in attendance in addition to other prominent figures from Youyue Divine Palace.
This also demonstrated the status of the Heavenly Mandate Academy, from being the attention of the public to its imminent weakening when facing the crisis of its survival to enjoying its fame in the Nine Realms once again, its light brightening the whole world.
It was hard to imagine that all this happened in just a months time.
A month later, the Heavenly Mandate Academy was recruiting disciples again. This time, the entire Heavenly Mandate City was filled with cultivators. Countless many had come to the Heavenly Mandate Academy for assessment.
As the details of that battle came to light, many people knew that the Heavenly Mandate Academy had produced many who possessed perfect Divine Wheels, and it created great a great sensation.
At this time, Lord Taixuan, Ye Futian, and many other prominent figures of the Heavenly Mandate Academy stood in a great hall at the academy, looking at the mighty figures in front of them, a grand occasion.
There, countless people looked up at Ye Futian.
This unique and outstanding commander who had led the Heavenly Mandate Academy into the Shen clan, with several Renhuang in possession of the perfect Divine Wheels, decimated the Lower Renhuang of the Shen clan, while he himself had crushed Shen Hao. Today, many people proclaimed that within the 3,000 Realms of the Great Path, Ye Futian was the number one among his generation.
His fame had surpassed that of Jian Qingzhu and Nan Luoshen of the Nantian Divine Kingdom. He became the idol of countless young people. A legendary figure who came into his own without relying on familial influences, and created a prosperous dynasty based solely on his own power.
Since the unification of the world by the Twin Great Emperors, Ye Futian was the only other person who had done so. To name him as the most dazzling talent after the unification of the Divine Prefecture would not be an overstatement.
In the time of little over 300 years, there had not been many genius talents. After all, the time was too short, and many of them had already achieved fame from before. In terms of influence, it was true that no one had quite achieved it to the level as Ye Futian had.
The appraisal of the disciples was done by others at the Heavenly Mandate Academy, and it was no something for Ye Futian to worry about. But now, many of the cultivators from other forces in the Heavenly Mandate Realm had also come to offer their help.
At this moment, a bright divine light descended from the void, and many looked up at the sky and saw a group of people appearing in the sky above.
Everyone beneath the sky was astounded, the cultivators from the Golden Divine Nation and the Shen clan had arrived, and everything that had happened afterward made many people a little afraid. It wouldnt be people from these two forces again, would it?
Ye Futian looked up at the sky above, and when he saw those who were coming, he revealed a look of surprise.
"Greetings to the Divine Priests." Ye Futian bowed slightly and saluted the guests.
"No need for formality, Emperor Ye. We didnt come to congratulate you on the opening of the Heavenly Mandate Academy last time, so we are coming to take a look this time." The old man in the lead said with a smile; this group of people actually came from Empty Imperial Palace.
Ye Futian had seen them outside the Gods relic.
"Thank you, Divine Priests, this way, please." Ye Futian extended his hand and pointed the way.
The figure in the void nodded, and the group descended upon the hall where Ye Futian and the others were. Lord Taixuan and the people of other major powers were disquieted in their hearts. As a general rule, the Empty Imperial Palace did not participate in outside affairs, and it was even rarer to appear at the location of other principalities.
But now, they had descended upon the Heavenly Mandate Academy.
The meaning behind this action was extraordinary.
"Divine Priests." Lord Taixuan and the others nodded slightly to the visitors with respect. After all, the person who commanded the Divine Priests of the Empty Imperial Palace was none other than Donghuang the Great.
"No need to pay attention to me, just treat me as if I am one of the spectators," said the old man with a smile. He turned and looked at the figure in the distance, and continued, "The Great Emperor, after the unification, also dedicated setting up academies as places of preaching martial arts in the hopes that martial arts would flourish. Emperor Ye and Lord Taixuan now established the Heavenly Mandate Academy to preach in the Heavenly Mandate Realm is a great undertaking for a noble cause."
If it were ordinary forces engaged in preaching, he would not have cared so much. But the Heavenly Mandate Academy had caused such a sensation in the Nine Realms, and its influence now was close to that of the Tianshen Academy.
"The elder praised us too much. We are just doing whatever within our power to do," Ye Futian said politely, but he could feel that the other party was being genuine.
And strictly speaking, they had helped him out last time at the City of the Ruins.
The old man smiled. "Emperor Ye is much too humble. Not many in this world could achieve such a grand endeavor."
"It is indeed great merit," the cultivators from Shangxiao Divine Palace also smiled and added. Shangxiao Divine Palace held the same philosophy about preaching to the world.
Ye Futian smiled and didnt say anything more; he couldnt very well agree with them in complimenting himself.
"You have traveled a long way. Allow me to prepare a banquet so we can drink and celebrate," said Ye Futian.
"Emperor Ye need not trouble, well be leaving as soon as we have a chance to check everything out." The old man smiled and shook his head, saying, "I heard that Emperor Ye received the Great Emperors inheritance in the Gods relic?"
Ye Futian looked at the Divine Priest, then nodded in silent admission.
It could hardly be considered receiving the Great Emperors inheritance, but this was something that he wanted to reveal deliberately. After all, this was observed by everyone in the Gods relic. On the other hand, the secret of the worlds ancient tree was something that could not be revealed, and it had to be camouflaged as an inheritance.
"I have witnessed the awakening of the Great Emperor, which resonated with me. The Emperor had given me the inheritance, and I have felt the calling of the gods and listened to their will," the old man murmured, his voice was ethereal. He smiled and said, "Emperor Yes talent and courage deserve our admiration. If you can accomplish such a great feat at your age, your future achievements are immeasurable."
"The praise of the elder makes me speechless." Ye Futian smiled in resignation.
"Well, Im just here to take a look at the situation in the Heavenly Mandate Academy. Now, I shall take my leave," the old man replied.
"Elder, dont get me wrong, I didnt mean anything by it," Ye Futian explained.
"Hahaha." The old man laughed heartily as he got up to leave. "If chance allows, we will meet again in the future."
After that, he took the group and left, coming and going like a shadow.
Ye Futian smiled and shook his head. He didnt mind, and he knew that the other partys action had nothing to do with what he said.
"The visit of the Divine Priests from Empty Imperial Palace meant that the Heavenly Mandate Academy will have no trouble for a long time," Lord Taixuan said, which stunned Ye Futian. However, looking at Lord Taixuan and pondering on the significance of the visit, it all made sense, and he was relieved.
Indeed, the visit of the Divine Priests from Empty Imperial Palace could very well be instructed by powers from above.
Although the visit was brief, merely a few moments standing inside the Heavenly Mandate Academy to exchange a few words but it was enough for the Heavenly Mandate Academy to stand firmly in the Heavenly Mandate Realm.
Shen clan, Golden Divine Nation, or any other forces who might want to make a move on the Heavenly Mandate Academy, would have more angles to consider.
"So, I owe the Divine Priests a favor," Ye Futian said with a smile.
"Im going now," Ye Futian said as he walked down the great hall and heading toward the Heavenly Mandate Academy. His heart was at peace.
Many matters had been settled gradually, and finally, he could really relax for a while. At least for now, there didnt seem to be any imminent threats.
Mindlessly, he wandered once again to the place of cultivation for Brahmas Pure Sky.
"Goddess Qin." Ye Futian found Qin He at a palace where Brahmas Pure Sky was located.
"Fancy seeing Master Ye here," Qin He said with a smile.
"What is the Lady up to now in Brahmas Pure Sky?" Ye Futian asked.
"When Jieyu was sent down from the mountain, thats when the Lady began her retreat, and she probably wont come out for a while," Qin He replied.
"Retreat?" Ye Futian nodded. "Ill go see Jieyu."
With that said, he continued to walk inward and came to the place where Hua Jieyu was cultivating.
Hua Jieyu looked at Ye Futian.
"Is the realm stabilized after these few days of cultivation?" Ye Futian asked.
Hua Jieyu looked at him and nodded gently.
Ye Futian walked up to her with a bright smile. "I want to go and visit some old friends. Do you want to come with me?"
Hua Jieyu looked stunned, and her eyes were searching his for the meaning behind his suggestion. After a moment of silence, she then gently nodded. "Sure!"
"Okay, Ill pick you up then." Ye Futian said with a smile, then turned to leave.
