Chapter 993: A Crazy Idea
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
The stone platform was not that big, it was surrounded by hundreds and thousands of broken wood pieces in just a blink of an eye. The broken wood pieces kept rolling and eventually they took the form of a figurine. A brand new giant wooden figure was formed.
“What’s that Inscription Formation ?” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes narrowed when he witnessed the scene. He was in shock.
He could clearly sense it from the Spiritual Energy he had extended just a moment ago.
Along the stone platform, there was an Inscription Formation inside that exuded an odd energy. The hundreds and thousands of broken wood pieces piled up in the corridor were triggered for seemingly no reason.
When the stone platform approached them, the hundreds of thousands of broken wood pieces rushed toward the stone platform as if they were summoned by something before they transformed into a giant wooden figure.
This wooden figure consisted of hundreds and thousands of broken wood pieces. Although the surface of its body was uneven, it did not hide the vast and imposing aura it exuded.
“There aren’t any Origin Stones inside the platform, only a piece of Concept Fragment… These broken wood pieces originated from the previous wooden figures so it retained some Origin Energy from the mid-grade Origin Stone in the wooden figures’ bodies.”
“And now, these meager and extremely weak Origin Energies in the broken wood pieces are entering the stone platform as though they were led by something… Eh? It’s that Inscription Formation again!” Duan Ling Tian, who was extremely confused earlier, suddenly realized something.
The Inscription Formation on the strange stone platform created an extremely formidable suction force. All traces of Origin Energies on the hundreds and thousands of broken wood pieces were absorbed by it.
Moments later, the Origin Energies in the hundreds and thousands of broken wood pieces were completely absorbed by the stone platform. The stone platform seemed to have become the heart of the giant wooden figure as it continued to grow stronger.
Without knowing when, Duan Ling Tian’s extended Spiritual Energy detected the Origin Energies, that were absorbed and accumulated by the stone platform, trembling suddenly before erupting completely.
In an instant, milky-white flames that seemed as though they could incinerate everything surged out from the giant wooden figure that was formed by hundreds and thousands of broken wood pieces!
Heaven and Earth Energy stirred and formed a Heaven and Earth Phenomenon above the wooden figure.
Four hundred ancient horned dragons’ silhouettes appeared clearly before Duan Ling Tian’s eyes.
“Just with the Origin Energy alone, it triggered the Heaven and Earth Energy and formed such a Heaven and Earth Phenomenon… It’s equivalent to a Third Level Void Transformation martial artist exerting the strength of their Origin Energy!”
Duan Ling Tian’s eyes narrowed slightly when he witnessed the scene before him.
As far as he knew, an Inscription Formation formed from mid-grade Origin Stones, no matter how many there were, could only utilize Origin Energy equivalent to a Seventh Level Void Interpretation martial artist at the most. That would amount to a hundred ancient horned dragons’ strength.
However, the giant wooden figure that did not have any Origin Stone in its body could exert Origin Energy that was equivalent to a Third Level Void Transformation martial artist. Duan Ling Tian felt shocked from the bottom of his heart.
In his opinion, this was ridiculous!
“The Origin Energy in the giant wooden figure came from the broken wood pieces… The Origin Energies from the broken wood pieces originated from the mid-grade Origin Stone. As a result, even if all the Origin Energies in the broken wood pieces were combined together, it shouldn’t be able to demonstrate such a strength!”
“After all, these Origin Energies came from a mid-grade Origin Stone! Mid-grade Origin Stone has a lot of limitations, so it’s impossible to display such a strength through the Inscription Formation alone.”
Something just did not add up for Duan Ling Tian regarding that.
Finally, he came to a conclusion.
“I think it must be the Inscription Formation inside this strange stone platform… This mysterious and unique Inscription Formation doesn’t even exist in Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory!”
Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath as he ended his train of thoughts.
Although the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory did not have any record of the Inscription Formation, he still managed to figure something out from the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s knowledge of Inscription Formations.
The Inscription Formation inside the strange stone platform was truly amazing!
“To be able to combine the weak Origin Energies in the hundreds and thousands of broken wood pieces and gather it into such a powerful Origin Energy…This Inscription Formation’s simply unbelievable!” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes were tinged with fear.
Although he did not understand the Inscription Formation, he managed to derive an extremely crazy idea from the information he gathered from the Inscription Formation.
‘If this kind of Inscription Formation can be used on human martial artists… Their Origin Energy would have a substantial increase if it allows human martial artists to take control of the Inscription Formation and absorb Origin Energy from other human martial artists! How scary would that be?’ Duan Ling Tian felt chills from his heart, and his scalp tingled when he thought about that.
If this idea worked, the entire Cloud Continent would be shocked!
At that time, the belief that stronger powerhouses could not be defeated by a large number of weaker counterparts would be completely destroyed.
Through such an Inscription Formation, one hundred First Level Void Transformation martial artists’ Origin Energies could be combined, accumulated and increased to its maximum at the Seventh Level Void Transformation.
A Fourth Level Void Transformation martial artist, who usually could easily kill a hundred First Level Void Transformation martial artists, would be easily defeated after the hundred First Level Void Transformation martial artists cooperated with the help from the Inscription Formation!
“If such an Inscription Formation works on human martial artists… I’ll only need a hundred Ninth Level Void Transformation martial artists to combine their Origin Energies and increase it through the Inscription Formation to reach the level of a Martial Monarch!”
“At that time, it’s not impossible for a hundred Ninth Level Void Transformation martial artists to kill a Martial Monarch powerhouse!”
A crazy idea formed in Duan Ling Tian’s mind and his mood was affected accordingly.
Looking at the current situation, although a hundred Ninth Level Void Transformation martial artists together sounded terrifying, it was nothing compared to the intimidation from a First Level Martial Monarch Stage powerhouse.
A First Level Martial Monarch Stage powerhouse could completely kill a hundred Ninth Level Void Transformation martial artists.
However, if the Inscription Formation inside the strange stone platform could be used on one of the Ninth Level Void Transformation martial artists, then he could combine, accumulate and increase their strength with the Origin Energies from the other ninety-nine Ninth Level Void Transformation martial artists.
At that time, the Origin Energy would be at the Third Level Martial Monarch Stage or even the Fourth Level Martial Monarch Stage. It would not be just a dream!
Such a strength was enough to instantly kill a First Level Martial Monarch powerhouse!
“There’s strength in numbers… This is true on Earth! Even when I was at my peak as Earth’s strongest Weapons Specialist, I would still die if I was surrounded by a hundred normal people throwing a hundred kitchen knives at me simultaneously.”
Although he was known as Earth’s strongest Weapons Specialist in his past life, it was impossible for him to block a hundred kitchen knives from all directions.
“However, in Cloud Continent, strength in numbers only apply if the martial artists are similar in strength… The notion of the weak overcoming the strong was nothing but a big joke!”
“Just like how a First Level Martial Monarch powerhouse is fearless against hundreds and thousands of ordinary Void Transformation martial artists! Even if it’s a hard fight, the ones who die are the hundreds and thousands of ordinary Void Transformation martial artists and not the First Level Martial Monarch powerhouse.” Duan Ling Tian sighed in his heart as his thoughts trailed.
In terms of a martial artist’s cultivation in Cloud Continent, every level’s improvement would bring a great leap in strength.
Trying to win a fight by sheer number and for the weak to overpower a stronger opponent was harder than going to heaven!
“But if this kind of Inscription Formation can be used on human martial artists… It’s not impossible for hundreds and thousands of ordinary Void Transformation martial artists to join hands and kill a Martial Monarch powerhouse.” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes flashed and flames of raw desire arose.
Suddenly, a swift and violent wind whistling sound reverberated. It instantly woke Duan Ling Tian up.
When Duan Ling Tian finally reacted, a giant fist was already in front of his eyes.
He did not have time to completely defend himself, he could only hurriedly utilize as much force as he could to defend himself.
The result was obvious. Although Duan Ling Tian, who was unprepared, managed to utilize several hundreds of ancient horned dragons’ strength in a hurry, he was still crushed by the power contained in that huge fist.
After the formidable force suppressed Duan Ling Tian, it landed on Duan Ling Tian’s body. It pushed him off like a rotten stump and unrelentingly smashed at him until he flew away.
Duan Ling Tian, who was smashed, felt his internal organs trembled and something rising in his throat. He then involuntarily spat out a mouthful of blood, his face turned ashen immediately.
At the same time, his body flew out uncontrollably like a shooting arrow.
He did not slow down until he struggled and used his Origin Energy.
Even so, he still slammed into one side of the wall in Qing Feng Palace’s second level. Once again, his internal organ trembled violently due to the impact, and his vital energy and blood constantly churned in his body.
“Wa! Wa!” Duan Ling Tian spat out another two mouthfuls of blood as the Origin Energy in his body stirred uncontrollably.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
Simultaneously, air explosion sounds caused by compressed air flow spread to Duan Ling Tian’s direction in a timely manner. Moreover, gusts of fierce wind that was blowing in all directions accompanied it.
As the fierce wind hit, a piercing wind whistling sound headed toward Duan Ling Tian as though it would not rest until Duan Ling Tian was killed.
The giant fist appeared again, and the giant wooden figure attacked unrelentingly.
Duan Ling Tian’s face changed, and the Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Sword materialized in his hands. With a backhand, he slashed the wall behind him with the blade of his sword and hurriedly exerted his force.
In that instant, the impact pushed Duan Ling Tian away, and he narrowly escaped the giant wooden figure’s punch.
The giant wooden figure’s fist, that almost connected with Duan Ling Tian’s body, roughly slammed on the wall and resulted in a loud bang that sounded like an exploding mine.
