Chapter 878: Primordial Empyrean Heaven
The spirit cruiser tore through the void of the world it was in and it began Void Transference.
The moment a spirit cruiser, which was controlled by a Supremacy and also the mount of Emperor Luo, did Void Transference, be it its teleportation distance or the energy it consumed, they were both unimaginable.
The reason why it had to be controlled by a Supremacy was because the venue of the Luo Divine Hall trials was completely unexpected…
Yi Yun stood beside a window of the spirit cruiser. As it passed through space, he saw numerous twinkling lights. These dots of light each represented a star.
Some of these stars were desolate, but there were others brimming with life in their respective solar systems. These lives similarly could give birth to warriors. There were as many lives in the entire 12 Empyrean Heavens as the number of grains of sand on a beach. It was difficult to estimate the number, and even if one was a Supremacy, one would only be able to explore a very tiny area of the entire 12 Empyrean Heavens.
"Junior Brother Yi Yun."
Yi Yun turned around when he heard someone call him. He saw a young man and woman walk towards him.
The man was lanky while the woman was petite.
"I'm Gu Qing. She's Ling Wu. We are both members of the younger generation in Empress Xuan's camp. We might be considered pretty alright in our states, but compared to Junior Brother Yi Yun, we are far too inferior."
Gu Qing laughed. He came to get to know Yi Yun, because be it his current status, or the amount of potential he had revealed, he was someone worth acquainting with.
"Senior Brother Gu, you must be joking. This lowly one only lucked out on a little bit of Desolate Heaven technique. The upcoming Luo Divine Hall trials is a competition of strength, and I lack the advantage in various aspects."
Just as Yi Yun was speaking, the spirit cruiser suddenly accelerated, as though the void had been torn apart as its fragments transformed into bands of light while they hurtled backwards.
"The tunneling through space is about to begin."
Yi Yun had once experienced Void Transference. But compared to the void transference on the spirit cruisers he had ridden before, the bands of light were more than a hundred times brighter. This implied an even stronger spatial force.
It was no wonder that a top-grade spirit cruiser used by Emperor Luo was deployed for this trip. If it was any ordinary spirit cruiser, it would be torn apart by the force of the spatial storms.
"Where are we going?" Yi Yun could not help but ask. He was still clueless about the Luo Divine Hall trials.
"To the Primordial Empyrean Heaven." Ling Wu said.
She had ocean-blue long hair. As she watched the gorgeous band of lights outside the spirit cruiser, her looks revealed a yearning.
"Primordial Empyrean Heaven?"
This was the first time that Yi Yun had heard of such a name.
"The Primordial Empyrean Heaven sits independent outside the 12 Empyrean Heavens. Its volume is relatively smaller than the 12 Empyrean Heavens, but its status is extremely pivotal. Legend says that… it is a world that failed to take form." At this moment, Gu Qing spoke.
Yi Yun was taken aback after hearing this. A world that failed to taken form?
"That's right. In this world, there are stars that are in their inchoate states, fragmentary spaces, the richest Fey God auras, and the power of Chaos… "
Yi Yun was alarmed. He obviously knew what it meant by the word ‘Chaos’. Legend said that the Universe was born out of Chaos. According to the 12 Empyrean Heavens' stories, the 12 Fey Gods came out of Chaos.
After the 12 Empyrean Heavens were formed out of Chaos, most of the power of Chaos had been depleted.
And according to Gu Qing, the Primordial Empyrean Heaven was a world that failed to take form. If that were the case, leaving behind the power of Chaos was nothing surprising!
What sort of form was the power of Chaos?
Just having the power of Chaos in the Primordial Empyrean Heaven was already an extremely attractive point.
Furthermore, not only was there the power of Chaos, it also contained a great deal of opportunities.
It was no wonder that Ling Wu's eyes sparkled when she mentioned the Primordial Empyrean Heaven.
Ling Wu said, "Actually, the White Fox clan's trials are also held in the Primordial Empyrean Heaven. Every sixty years, there will be a moment when the barrier demarcating the Primordial Empyrean Heaven is at its weakest. That also the best time to enter the Primordial Empyrean Heaven."
"This is the reason why the White Fox and Luo clan choose to begin their most important trials on the same day. However, even if the spatial barrier is at its weakest, a top-grade spirit cruiser and a Supremacy are needed to break through the spatial barrier. If not for this reason, how are we even qualified to ride in His Majesty's mount and get to meet Supremacy Gulan."
"Then will we be in the same place as the White Fox clan?" Yi Yun asked. Luo Huo'er was currently together with the White Fox clan.
"Of course not. The Primordial Empyrean Heaven is a very complex environment. Opening up a zone requires a great deal of resources and the sacrifice of warriors. No power would be willing to sacrifice so much to share the zone that they open up with others. Our zone is ours, while the White Fox clan's is theirs." Gu Qing explained to Yi Yun.
"So that's how it is."
As they spoke, the spirit cruiser began another round of Void Transference.
The beams of light surrounding them grew in intensity till finally, the spirit cruiser came to a halt in a nebulous space.
Primordial Empyrean Heaven!
"This is the world that failed to take form." Yi Yun looked at the space around the cruiser. In fact, this was a universe amidst disorder. Just the Yuan Qi around him felt different from the 12 Empyrean Heavens. An ancient and desolate aura that existed in this Empyrean Heaven.
The Primordial Empyrean Heaven was filled with fog, and amidst the fog, there were fragmentary continental land masses, as well as floating stars.
However, a large majority of the stars were dim and dead silent, as though they were just gigantic pieces of rock. There were some stars and land masses that emanated an extremely dangerous aura.
Yi Yun imagined that they would disembark from the spirit cruiser here, but he never expected that the spirit cruiser would continue flying before landing on a large land mass.
"We're here." Gu Qing said.
"This is the Luo Divine Hall. The Luo clan has set up a large formation array here. Every time Void Transference is used, we would arrive in the vicinity. A short trip here would do." Ling Wu understood a lot about the matter.
Yi Yun looked at the land mass and he noticed a towering but unsophisticated palace, as well as hundreds of tall spires standing above the lands as well.
"This is the Luo Divine Hall." Gu Qing said.
The Luo Divine was the totem of the Luo clan. Legend said that the ancestor of the Luo clan was an extremely powerful Ancient Fey.
"So… the true Luo Divine Hall is actually here. I thought that it would be in the royal capital."
Yi Yun drew a light gasp. There was no vegetation on the land mass. It looked desolate and cold, as though it was a forgotten world.
If the Luo clan could build a Luo Divine Hall in the Primordial Empyrean Heaven, it was possible that the White Fox clan did as well. The various factions of the 12 Empyrean Heavens divided the Primordial Empyrean Heaven amongst themselves.
The Primordial Empyrean Heaven was an important ground for them to nurture their talents. There was a delicate balance maintained amongst the factions, with each going their own way.
A few Luo Divine Hall Elders, who were stationed here, had already been waiting mid-air.
"From today onwards, you will be spending the next eighteen years here! After eighteen years, it is unknown how many of you will be able to leave on the spirit cruiser alive. And amongst you, how many would experience a complete metamorphosis to become a dragon or a phoenix amongst people!?"
"Disembark the spirit cruiser!" Another thin elder took a step forward as he said.
This Elder was truly direct…
The disciples, who had just arrived in the Primordial Empyrean Heaven, were still feeling fascinated about their surroundings. But at the moment that they arrive, it was like a figurative basin of cold water was poured over them to dampen their spirits. Many of them immediately wiped the wonderment from their minds and fighting spirit and diligence appeared in their eyes.
