Chapter 486: The Owner of Another Jade Sword
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
“It can be said that the opportunity this time is a win-win opportunity for both our Crimson Sky Kingdom and you!” Nie Fen’s words were filled with confidence towards Duan Ling Tian.
He believed that with Duan Ling Tian’s natural talent and strength, Duan Ling Tian would surely be able to display remarkable talent in the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom and obtain the qualification to head to the Darkstone Empire’s Imperial City and compete for supremacy with the young geniuses of the Darkstone Empire and the various Imperial Kingdoms.
Once Duan Ling Tian was able to continuously display remarkable talent in the Darkstone Empire…
Duan Ling Tian would be able to head to the Capital of the Darkhan Dynasty and compete for the qualifications to participate in the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties with the young geniuses of the Darkhan Dynasty and the various Empires!
It could be imagined that the young experts that were able to obtain the qualifications to participate in the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties was surely the most monstrous geniuses of the various Dynasties.
The Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties was the competition between the groups of young geniuses that stood at the peak of the ten great dynasties.
At that time, it would another fierce struggle.
If Duan Ling Tian was able to display remarkable talent in the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties, then he would even have the opportunity to join the powers of the Foreign Lands.
The words Foreign Lands carried extreme weight and stably suppressed the various Dynasties.
“That Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties doesn’t have any specific requirements?” Duan Ling Tian asked curiously.
“Supposedly, the people participating in the martial competition can’t be above 40 years of age and must truly be of the younger generation! Otherwise, even if one seizes the qualification to participate in the martial competition, the person would be directly stripped of his qualification to participate.” Nie Yuan spoke slowly. “In other words, the young geniuses of the various Dynasties that prepared for the martial competition can’t be above the age of 35! After all, even if they were only 35 now, they would step into the age of 40 after five years.”
Duan Ling Tian’s brows raised up. “Can’t be above the age of 40?”
“Actually, we don’t understand this too well either…” Nie Fen said with a smile, “Normally speaking, those that are below 40 are uniformly called as young men… But there’s many people above the age of 40 like Uncle Feng that’s around the age of 50 yet in good health, and they looked to be as if they were young men around the age of 30.”
As he spoke up to here, Nie Fen glanced at Nie Yuan and laughed. “Unlike my father…”
“What? You little brat, you dare complain that your father is old?” Nie Yuan glared angrily as he shouted in a low voice.
Nie Fen instantly shrunk back when he heard this. “Father, I was joking, joking…”
“Big Brother Ni Fen.” Duan Ling Tian didn’t agree nor disagree to what Nie Fen said. “I’ve seen records in an ancient book… Supposedly, there’s a miraculous ore in the Foreign Lands that after being polished could become an Age Measuring Pearl. So long as one’s hand was placed on the pearl, the pearl would make a corresponding reaction and numerous strands of colored lines would appear on it… For example, a single light crimson colored line would appear when the hand of a newborn child touched it, and it indicated that the child wasn’t even one year old.”
“A child that was one year old would have a crimson colored line that possessed a deeper color… If it was a two year old child, two crimson red colored lines would appear.”
“At ten years old, it was instead 10 crimson red colored lines.”
“After that, colored lines of various colors would appear when a person of greater age touched the pearl, and it indicated various ages.”
Everything Duan Ling Tian spoke of now was naturally not seen from some ancient book.
The reason he knew this was because there were records of the Age Measuring Pearl in the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor.
The Age Measuring Pearl was able to measure the age of a person.
Of course, the Age Measuring Pearl wasn’t omnipotent.
It was at most able to measure the true age of a person below the age of 80.
But even then, it was already more than enough to measure the age of the young geniuses that participated in the Martial Competition.
Not only was Nie Fen stunned, even Nie Yuan was stunned when they heard Duan Ling Tian.
Nie Yuan’s ability to maintain his composure was much stronger, he was the first to recover from his shock, and he sighed. “There’s such a wondrous item in the world? Truly unbelievable!”
“Cloud Continent is so big that nothing is too strange. The existence of the Age Measuring Pearl is nothing worth being surprised over.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and smiled, then asked. “Right, Uncle Nie. Did the ambassador of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom say when the young geniuses selected by our Crimson Sky Kingdom had to go to the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom? And after we go there, what are the specifics?”
Nie Yuan’s eyes flashed as he said, “According to that ambassador, it’s alright so long as you arrive at the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom’s Imperial City within a year… As for after you’ve arrived at the Imperial City, the young geniuses selected by the various kingdoms only needed to display their proof of identity and they’d be able to become a student at Dragon and Phoenix Academy.”
“Two years after that, the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom will hold a competition of geniuses. At that time, so long as it’s a person that’s able to display remarkable talent in the competition of geniuses, the person will be able to obtain the opportunity to head to the Darkstone Empire and compete with the young geniuses of the Darkstone Empire and the various Imperial Kingdoms!”
“From the Imperial Kingdom to the Empire, then from the Empire to the Dynasty… After that would be the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties. It can be imagined that anyone that was able to walk until the end of this would surely achieve greatness!” As he finished speaking, Nie Yuan was slightly excited.
“But unfortunately, the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties has come too swiftly… If it only arrived another five or six years later, then when the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties arrived, Little Tian would be able to be around the age of 33 or 34, and it wouldn’t be difficult for Little Tian to obtain the qualifications to participate in the Martial Competition and even display remarkable talent there!” Nie Fen sighed.
Although he was confident in Duan Ling Tian, but his age was too young, after all.
Perhaps Duan Ling Tian would have the opportunity to head to the Empire and even Dynasty, and he would be able to compete with the young geniuses of the various Imperial Kingdom and Empires.
But wanting to seize the qualifications for the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties was probably greatly difficult.
He didn’t look favorably upon Duan Ling Tian.
“Exactly.” Nie Yuan nodded, and agreed extremely with Nie Fen’s words.
Only Duan Ling Tian neither agreed nor disagreed.
After all, the Martial Competition only began five years later.
Who could be certain of what would happen in the time of five years?
“Little Tian, tell your parents after you return… Don’t miss this opportunity! One year is neither long nor short. Even if you travel with a Nascent Soul Stage fierce beast, it would probably require half a year of time from here to the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom’s Imperial City.” Nie Yuan spoke with a serious expression.
Although he didn’t look favorably on Duan Ling Tian being able to seize the qualification to participate in the Martial Competition.
However, he was still extremely confident in Duan Ling Tian being able to display remarkable talent amongst the group of young geniuses of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom.
Even if Duan Ling Tian was able to display remarkable talent amongst the group of young geniuses in the Darkstone Empire, he wouldn’t be too surprised.
So, as far as he was concerned, even if Duan Ling Tian was unable to seize the qualifications to participate in the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties in the end, he would be able to obtain a great amount of benefits and rewards from the Imperial Family of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom and the Imperial Family of the Darkstone Empire.
He didn’t wish for Duan Ling Tian to miss it.
“Okay.” Duan Ling Tian nodded, then bid his farewells to Nie Yuan and Nie Fen before leaving the Divine Might Marquis Estate.
“Five years later, Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties… Interesting.” Duan Ling Tian stretched his arms and a wisp of a smile appeared on the corners of his mouth.
At the same time, his hand slightly trembled and a crystal clear jade sword appeared in his hand.
“This jade sword…” Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath and his gaze became dreamy.
He still remembered that he obtained this jade sword in the Misty Forest nearby Aurora City.
It could also be said to be given to him by the Young Sect Leader of Boundless Sect.
At the same time, this jade sword was also the culprit that caused the Boundless Sect to be annihilated!
“According to what the Young Sect Leader of the Boundless Sect said, this jade sword is the key to the Sword Monarch’s Treasure… Sword Monarch usually pointed towards a Martial Monarch that cultivated in the sword. The treasure left behind by a Martial Monarch would surely have many good things within!”
“Perhaps, once Little Gold’s cultivation has broken through to the Void Initiation Stage… I’ll be able to gather with the other few people that possessed the jade swords and head over to open the Sword Monarch’s Treasure together.” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart, and the Origin Energy in his hand released out to fuse into the jade sword.
He still remembered that the Young Sect Leader of the Boundless Sect had warned him to break through to the Void Initiation Stage before opening the Sword Monarch’s Treasure.
Duan Ling Tian could understand why the Boundless Sect’s Young Sect Leader said this.
After all, a cultivation that was too low was unable to protect the jade sword.
“This jade sword obviously has a Voice Transmission Inscription inscribed on it… I wonder if the other eight jade swords have owners now.” Duan Ling Tian still remembered what the Young Sect Leader of the Boundless Sect said that day.
There were a total of nine jade swords.
Only by gathering the nine jade swords could the Sword Monarch’s Treasure be opened!
The Voice Transmission Inscription was undoubtedly an extremely high grade inscription, and at least, Duan Ling Tian wasn’t able to inscribe it now.
“Only an Inscription Master whose Spiritual Force had attained the Void Transformation Stage or above was able to inscribe a Voice Transmission Inscription… The stronger the Spiritual Force, the area that the Voice Transmission Inscription was able to communicate with each other was greater.” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart and the Origin Energy that had fused into the jade sword directly activated the Voice Transmission Inscription.
The Voice Transmission Inscription was different from ordinary inscriptions, and it wasn’t a single use inscription.
“Eh, I’m able to sense the eight other corresponding Voice Transmission Inscriptions… I wonder if the other eight jade swords already have owners.” Duan Ling Tian’s brows raised.
Whereas right at this moment, a sonorous laughter sounded out by Duan Ling Tian’s ears. “Hahahaha… The ninth jade sword has finally appeared! Brother, your luck isn’t bad… I’ve heard since long ago that the jade sword had fallen into the hands of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom’s Boundless Sect’s Leader. After that, that Boundless Sect seemed to have been annihilated by a sect called the Black Fiend Sect.”
“Since you’re able to obtain that jade sword, you seem to be not simple… Brother, you’re from the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom, right?” Duan Ling Tian knew clearly that the sonorous voice was communicating with him.
That was the owner of another jade sword.
“What do you mean by this? Could it be that you’re not from the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom?” Duan Ling Tian was stunned and was slightly surprised.
“Exactly, I’m not from the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom… I’m from the Darkstone Empire! Brother, confirm a time and place, and we can contact the other seven people to open the Sword Monarch’s Treasure together. How about it?” The sonorous voice contained slight excitement mixed within.
