What a joke!
Could this be sensed by intuition?
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian naturally perceived King Yong didn’t believe him, yet he didn’t make any further explanation.
In fact, Duan Ling Tian naturally didn’t rely on intuition to know that King Yong would obtain the No.32 command token, and he didn’t rely on intuition to just happen to obtain the No.31 command token.
Early on when the young man holding the wooden tray has ascended the spectating area Duan Ling Tian was seated at, his Spiritual Force had already stretched out to check the numbers on the 40 command tokens.
Only two of the command tokens on the tray were successive to each other, and it was No. 31 and No. 32.
It was precisely because of this that all the subsequent events had happened.
He’s asked King Yong to draw the No. 31 command token, and he instead drew the No. 32 command token.
“So long as it’s an Inscription Master that’s skilled in controlling Spiritual Force, then practically any Inscription Master is capable of detecting the numbers on these command tokens that are covered…” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart.
Because of this, he didn’t think he was extraordinary in any way.
“Duan Ling Tian, you… Could it be that you’re in Inscription Master?” In next to no time, a shocked voice sounded out by Duan Ling Tian’s ear, and it was exactly the voice transmission of King Yong.
Obviously, King Yong had recovered from his earlier surprise and was already able to make an accurate judgment.
This time, Duan Ling Tian didn’t continue keeping him guessing and nodded lightly.
This caused King Yong to be unable to refrain from shaking his head and sighing, and then he sent a voice transmission and said, “Since you’re able to use your Spiritual Force to detect the numbers on these command tokens, it’s sufficient to show that your extremely skilled in the control of your Spiritual Force, and your attainments in the Art of Inscription are high.”
“Actually, your natural talent in the Martial Dao is shocking, so why waste your time on studying the Art of Inscriptions? If you didn’t study the Art of Inscription, then your strength now would surely be even stronger.” As he finished speaking, King Yong seemed to be slightly regretful.
As far as he was concerned, since Duan Ling Tian’s attainments in the Art of Inscriptions was high, it indirectly represented that Duan Ling Tian had put painstaking effort into this and had wasted much time on it.
If Duan Ling Tian was able to use this time that he’d wasted on his cultivation, then Duan Ling Tian’s strength would surely be even stronger.
Duan Ling Tian naturally noticed the regret that King Yong revealed towards him, and he only shook his head and smiled towards this.
Only he himself knew that his attainments in the Art of Inscriptions was inherited from the Rebirth Martial Emperor, and he’d never wasted any time on it.
“Duan Ling Tian, I thought that I’d be able to see you fight first… Now it would seem that it isn’t going to happen.” Su Li sat by Duan Ling Tian’s side and shook his head.
The command token he drew was No. 237.
“My luck’s good, what can I say?” Duan Ling Tian shrugged and spoke shamelessly, and he neither went red with shame nor breathed heavily.
It was as if it truly was because of his luck being good that he just happened to draw command token No.32.
But Su Li didn’t doubt it.
After all, Su Li didn’t know that Duan Ling Tian had asked King Yong to draw command token No. 31 earlier.
After a short moment, all 360 young geniuses of the 36 Empires had drawn the command token that belonged to themselves.
These command tokens indicated a unique number.
“Now, the young geniuses with command token No. 1 to No. 20, please enter the arena.” In the sky above the arena, the white clothed young man stood there, his appeared cold as before as he spoke with a deep voice.
Meanwhile, the ten middle aged men behind him instantly transformed into numerous flowing lights, and when they appeared once more, they were already spread out in the sky above the various areas of the Cage Battle Arena.
The ten of them had intentionally spread apart by quite a distance.
“Everyone, I’ll be going first.” Amongst the group of young geniuses of the Darkstone Empire, someone had acquired command token No. 3, and he’d notified Duan Ling Tian and the others now before flying out.
This young genius was someone Duan Ling Tian had an impression of.
He was Gao Yu Hai that had fought Long Yun that day, and the weapon in his possession was a spirit fan. One year ago, he was a martial artist at the eighth level of the Void Prying Stage, and he’d comprehended Advanced Saber Force.
“He has actually broken through to the first level of the Void Initiation Stage after a year.” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart as he looked at Gao Yu Hai’s figure.
Early on when Gao Yu Hai had just spoke out, Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force had already enveloped him like a shadow, causing his cultivation to be unable to escape Duan Ling Tian’s detection.
First level of the Void Initiation Stage!
Amongst the young geniuses of the various Empires, although it wasn’t to the extent of being at the bottom, it was below average.
Earlier, Duan Ling Tian had intentionally detected the cultivation of the young geniuses of many Empires.
Amongst them, the weakest were some ninth level Void Prying Stage martial artists.
“Ninth level of the Void Initiation Stage… Participating in the Dynasty Martial Competition is merely a formality for them.” Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
Meanwhile, the other 19 young geniuses had flashed out from their respective spectating area and gathered with Gao Yu Hai.
“The possessors of command token No. 1 and No. 2, come over here.” In next to no time, one of the middle aged men in charge of recording the results of the battle spoke out with a voice that wasn’t loud, yet it clearly entered the ears of the 20 young geniuses that had entered the arena.
Instantly, two young geniuses swiftly arrived near the middle aged man.
“The possessors of command token No. 3 and No. 4, come over here.” Subsequently, another person spoke out.
In next to no time, Gao Yu Hai and another young genius arrived beside another middle aged man in charge of recording the results of the battle.
The remaining 16 young geniuses had taken their respective places as well.
The 20 young geniuses were split into groups of two that stood in confrontation with each other.
Near every single group of young genius standing in confrontation was a middle aged man standing with a solemn expression, and the middle aged man played the role of witness.
The battle would start at any moment!
“I was originally worried that if the battles were slowly carried out one by one, then the time of a single day would utterly not be enough for 360 people. Now, these 10 battles carried out together is greatly efficient.” Duan Ling Tian sighed in his heart as he looked at the 20 young geniuses that stood in confrontation.
“Begin!” Meanwhile, the white clothed young man that stood in the sky at the center of the arena abruptly shouted out with a light voice.
Instantly, the young geniuses of the various Empires that were spread into 10 areas attacked out while utilizing all their ability.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
Numerous figures that were exceedingly swift intersected each other.
Everywhere they passed, Origin Energy skyrocketed as Concept followed them like shadows, and their spirit weapons fiercely smashed towards their opponents.
In merely a single move, there were six people that admitted defeat.
The strengths of these six people had been completely surpassed by their opponents, and they utterly had no room for resistance.
If they didn’t admit defeat, they would surely suffer heavy injuries and even lose their lives.
After all, on a stage like the Dynasty Martial Competition, even if they were killed, they would have died for nothing.
After the six people admitted defeat, another six people advanced, whereas the remaining eight people were still fighting like raging fire…
Eight people divided into four groups were locked in battle.
Every two people who were locked in battle had comparable strengths, and they were on par and were in a deadlock for a time.
Amongst them was the Darkstone Empire’s Gao Yu Hai.
Presently, Gao Yu Hai relied on the grade five spirit weapon in his possession to utilize his entire Origin Energy and first level Saber Concept to fight intensely with his opponent.
His opponent was similarly a first level Void Initiation Stage martial artist who possessed a grade five spirit weapon and first level Concept, causing his opponent’s strength to not be inferior to him.
But although their strengths were on par, it was a fight of combat experience and various skills at a time like this.
Om! Om! Om! Om! Om!
With a raise of his hand, the grade five spirit fan in Gao Yu Hai’s hand flew out to transform into fan shaped saber light that covered the sky and enveloped towards his opponent.
In the hand of Gao Yu Hai’s opponent, a grade five spirit spear suddenly shook as swift spear images swept out like shadows to intercept the fan shaped saber lights that covered the sky.
Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!
Every time the grade five spirit sword flashed out, there would be a fan shaped saber light that was destroyed.
But unfortunately, Gao Yu Hai was obviously prepared, and at the instant when the fan shaped saber lights were completely obliterated by his opponent and his opponent revealed a complacent smile, he struck out swiftly like a bolt of lightning.
Along with Gao Yu Hai’s figure shaking, he seemed to have transformed into a saber that flashed directly towards his opponent, and the spirit fan in his hand even emitted a wave of ear piercing sounds from tearing through the sky.
“What a pity… This person’s strength isn’t inferior to Gao Yu Hai.” When he saw Gao Yu Hai was about to defeat his opponent, Duan Ling Tian shook his head and felt pity for Gao Yu Hai’s opponent.
Gao Yu Hai’s opponent had given Gao Yu Hai an opportunity to take advantage of because of his carelessness.
“No. 3 is victorious!” Meanwhile, the middle aged man that was in charge of recording the outcome of the battle between Gao Yu Hai and his opponent spoke out with a cold and indifferent voice.
At the same time, a paper and brush appeared in his hand as he started to record the outcome.
“It was a good match.” Gao Yu Hao who’d blasted his opponent flying with his fan at the critical moment smiled lightly to his opponent and nodded.
“Thank you for showing mercy.” Gao Yu Hai’s opponent replied sincerely.
Obviously, he knew clearly that if it wasn’t for Gao Yu Hai changing his attack to an attack using the side of the fan in a timely manner, he’d have already died under Gao Yu Hai’s fan, and not only be injured internally.
Compared with Gao Yu Hai showing mercy, the other six people were completely different.
Six people that were equally matched had bloodshot eyes as they fought.
In the end, two died and one was heavily injured.
The other three people that obtained victory were more or less injured slightly.
“Not bad.” When he saw Gao Yu Hai returning victorious and bringing honor to the Darkstone Empire, King Yong nodded with satisfaction.
“Gao Yu Hao’s character isn’t bad.” Duan Ling Tian praised in his heart as he looked at Gao Yu Hai return to his seat.
“Young geniuses that have drawn command token No. 21 to No. 40, enter the arena.” Meanwhile, the white clothed young man spoke out once more.
“It’s my turn.” Duan Ling Tian smiled. Even though he knew that he utterly had no opponent for this battle, he still flew up to converge with the other 18 young geniuses.
Subsequently, the ten middle aged men started calling them over to their sides.
“The possessor of command token No. 31 and No. 32, come here.” When a middle aged man’s voice sounded out, Duan Ling Tian headed over directly.
“Hmm?” When he saw only Duan Ling Tian come over and the remaining young geniuses had already taken their places, the middle aged man frowned. “Where’s the other person?”
“What’s your number?” Subsequently, the middle aged man looked at Duan Ling Tian and asked.
