1996 Two Great Godkings
So far up until now, Qin Wentian had came into contact with five godkings either directly or indirectly.
In ancient times, the eight extremely powerful heavenly deities of the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms split it into eight great regions, each ruling over one. They gained the title of godkings.
The Heaven Vault was the inheritance of Godking Xi. He med the Godking of Time back in the Time Realm of the Mystic Region, the Time King even gave him a time-attributed dao bone, allowing him to comprehend the laws of time. And after that, he had a conflict with the western world and found out that there might be another godking existence within the western paradise. This was an ancient godking that had lived since the ancient times until now.
And recently, he found out that the Divine Mausoleum was a scheme set up by a godking and his father has revealed that the past-life of Yue Changkong might also be a godking. There were already a total of five.
This was truly unusual, like it was symbolizing that this era was ending. Just like what Qin Yuanfeng has said, the eight godkings might either have left inheritances, or have reincarnated into other bodies, trying to return. A new era was about to unfold.
In that case, who would be the one to lord over this era?
The Qin Clan was destroyed, all their heavenly deities were annihilated. Qin Zheng and his wife committed suicide. Qin Dangtian was also devoured by Yue Changkong. This news instantly circulated through the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms causing a huge commotion. Yet another hegemonic power has fallen. The Qin Clan of the Heaven Region was such a powerful clan yet they got destroyed in a single day. It was said that after that battle, the people of the Qin Clan dispersed, splitting up into different factions due to internal conflict. It may be due to unequal distribution of resources or some other reasons.
Qin Yuanfeng's name resounded through the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms. Once, he was abandoned by the Qin Clan. Now, he came back to bury the Qin Clan. What a legend was he? This was a truly epic tale.
He controlled the force of the six paths and ignored heavenly dao, fighting against all the heavenly deities of the Qin Clan alone. Qin Zheng couldn't even withstand a single strike. Someone even said that Qin Yuanfeng's strength was actually equal to the Grim Reaper and many people were speculating, comparing Qin Zheng to the eight ancient godkings, wondering who was stronger.
After the Qin CLan was destroyed, the secret of the Divine Mausoleum was also leaked. It was a scheme plotted by an ancient godking, the Moon God. He borrowed Qin Dangtian's body and returned for the battle and was immensely powerful, almost killing off Qin Wentian. However, the number one genius of the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms Qin Wentian managed to reverse the situation due to his heaven-defying capabilities. He connected with countless constellations and broke the Moon God Eyes technique, eventually defeating Qin Dangtian.
Qin Yuanfeng and Qin Wentian, this pair of father and son could war against the world. The brilliance they displayed caused the experts from the hegemonic powers to sigh in admiration.
Because of the appearance of the Moon God and the discussion with regards to the eight great godkings in the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms. Many people searched through ancient records to read about some of the still existing information with regards to the legends of the godkings. After reading through, they learned of the deeds some of the eight great godkings have done before. Among the eight godkings, there was an extremely evil and terrifying existence. He wanted to use the multitude of lives of the world to establish his dao. It was incomparably cruel and his name was Godking Gu.
Godking Gu's life was legendary, it was rumored that only a very few people knew his name because he was an orphan. However, he grew famous because of this and according to some of the limited ancient records, Godking Gu's background was an extremely miserable one. This led to him hating life and treated the lives of people as weeds, basically not having any regards for lives at all. He was also incomparably cruel and once ruled the Yellow Region with an iron-fist. The people of the Yellow Region all felt fear towards him.
Godking Gu had a myriad of incarnations, he is said to be an undying existence, and was also capable of devouring the energies of others for his own use. He could transform into anyone, he cultivated the evil dao and set off on a path of no return. These rumors coincided with a certain person in this era. That person was none other than Yue Changkong. Right now, more and more rumors about Yue Changkong floated up. The people of the world already knew that he was a reincarnated cultivator.
Hence, many people guessed that Yue Changkong was none other than the reincarnation of one of the eight great ancient godkings, Godking Gu.
At this moment, Yue Changkong was in a desolate mountain range. This range of mountains extended endlessly and was enveloped by black fog, the atmosphere stifling to the extreme. No hints of life could be sensed here at all. The wild beasts that ran rampant had all been exterminated, their lives stolen by the black fog.
At the center of the fog, Yue Changkong sat cross-legged, as numerous faces appeared around him. One of those faces belonged to Qin Dangtian.
"How long do you still want to protect him?" A cold voice filled with disdain rang out from Yue Changkong's mouth. His lips curled slightly into a vile smile.
"I know you feel reluctance in your hearts. You schemed for countless years and should have been able to return yet your opportunity was seized by me. How could you tolerate being refined by me? However, the era is no longer the same. Your era has already passed. Look at the young man Qin Dangtian fought against earlier, as well as the young man's father. Isn't he the tomb keeper? Is he powerful? They are the main characters of this era. If you and I wish to gain control of this era, we have to be fused as one and seek back the glory of the past." Yue Changkong spoke, his voice filled with a bewitching tone.
"Who are you talking to exactly?" Qin Dagntian stared at Yue Changkong as he coldly asked.
"You don't have the qualifications to speak here." Yue Changkong glanced at Qin Dangtian. "Unless, you feel that you can win against Qin Wentian with your strength alone? That person is after all someone who defeated me. You, the so-called Heaven's Son, is basically not worthy of becoming his opponent. Your strength is far inferior and your dao cannot even withstand a single strike from him. Now, even your parents committed suicide and your clansmen became fragmented. Stop dreaming about useless fantasies in your heart."
Qin Dangtian's expression twisted, becoming extremely unsightly.
"Look, his heart has already collapsed. Why do you still help him to resist me? It is possible for me to forcefully devour you but I don't wish to do that. You know what I need, I need your complete strength, I need your dao. Your inheritance is on both of us, why don't you pass his portion to me?" Yue Changkong's eyes gleamed with a terrifying light.
"My patience is limited. If you work with me, both of us will rule supreme in the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms. If you refuse to comply, you will vanish completely." Yue Changkong's voice grew even colder. Behind him, the reflection of a half-moon appeared, shining resplendently, its rays cascading down on Qin Dangtian.
"Come on, give me the complete dao and both of us will fuse perfectly, becoming a new godking. This era will belong to the two of us." Yue Changkong continued to speak in that bewitching tone. Qin Dangtian's face gradually floated towards the half-moon. A resplendent burst of moonlight radiated out, Qin Dangtian's face began to transform into another half-moon which wanted to merge together with the half-moon behind Yue Changkong.
"What? How is this possible?" Qin Dangtian's expression showed that he was struggling madly. However, his soul was no longer under his control. There seemed to be a mysterious power that took it over.
"In the Divine Mausoleum, you transformed yourself into a dao incarnation. Moon God, our legend has just begun." The smile on Yue Changkong's face grew increasingly evil. As the two half-moons fused completely, a brilliant full moon appeared. In an instant, the dark fog in the area completely dispersed. As the full moon appeared, the surroundings were completely illuminated as an incomparably imposing figure appeared, the God of the Moon.
"Finally, things have ended." Yue Changkong spoke, his voice flickering with evil. Everything in the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms would be brought to an end by him. He wondered how strong that fellow in the western paradise was now.
In the Qin Heavenly Divine Sect, Qin Wentian and the others returned. The destruction of the Qin Clan could be considered a weight in their hearts that has settled down. However, the dispute in the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms hasn't concluded yet. Qin Wentian knew that he still has two great enemies.
Yue Changkong is someone he has to kill no matter what. He would never forget about Little Ye's death.
However, his father said that Yue Changkong might be the reincarnation of a godking and now, he just devoured the Moon God and was sure to be even more powerful than before. He would recover his peak cultivation sooner or later. In truth, in the battle during the past, Qin Wentian understood that the Yue Changkong now was no longer the Yue Changkong of the past.
His other enemy was the western paradise. This buddhist land of hypocrisy. They were incomparably cruel and was the main culprit behind Little Ye's death. Similarly, they are also the mastermind behind the joint attack of the hegemonic powers against the Heaven Vault. He himself also narrowly survived, almost dying in the hands of the Reincarnation Buddha. And if it wasn't for his father rushing over to the Heaven Vault in time, Qin Wentian didn't dare to think about how dire the consequences would be. Even now, his mind would still be filled with the scene where Qing`er and Youhuang messaged him.
These two enemies were much stronger compared to the Qin Clan. His current strength is simply too inferior. Even his father might not be able to deal with them as they were true godkings.
At this moment, Qin Wentian and Qin Yuanfeng sat together. Qin Wentian asked, "Father, there are two daos of the Moon God that are the most powerful. The first was Moon God Eyes. It was able to borrow the power of constellations in the sky and cast the living people of the world under an illusion with a single glance. It's the ultimate quintessence of the spacetime illusion dao. The second dao is the dao of dao extermination. It was able to exterminate all dao arts in the world. When these two are combined, they can destroy everything. Back then when I fought with Qin Dangtian, just a little portion of the Moon God's power already caused me to sink within the illusion. In addition, Qin Dangtian's control of the dao extermination dao wasn't strong enough. In the future if his control of the dao reaches the level of the Moon God, what sort of dao can be used to counter it?"
Qin Yuanfeng shook his head, "There are boundless daos in the world. If one hasn't reach that level, they will never know how great the limits of the daos are. There's no need for you to consider about how to comprehend a specific dao that can counter his. You should just follow your heart and delve even deeper in terms of understanding of your own daos. You possess the innate advantage of being able to connect with the boundless constellations in the sky, granting you countless possibilities, allowing to use all types of daos. You have to believe in yourself that you will be able to create a brand new path of your own."
Qin Wentian nodded his head lightly. Although he won against Qin Dangtian, he could deeply feel that the Moon God's daos were simply too tyrannical.
As for the western paradise, they possess a myriad of dao arts and were proficient in countless buddha-path techniques. Although the godking of the western paradise was heavily injured, countless years had already passed since then. He might have already recovered. If that was the case, he who has been keeping a low profile since such a long time ago, how strong was he now exactly? How terrifying would his dao be?
All these factors caused him to feel great pressure.
"Senior brother." A voice rang out. Jun Mengchen walked over.
"Mengchen." Qin Wentian smiled.
"Senior brother, our people are already mobilized. The Thunder Clan has been keeping tabs on our movements as well." Jun Mengchen spoke.
"Good. I'll go over shortly." A sharpness flashed in Qin Wentian's eyes. The people of the Qin Heavenly Divine Sect said that when the Thunder Clan attacked the divine sect, they were very extreme. The first to jump out to lead the attack was a deity from the Thunder Clan, causing great casualties to his people.
"I'll head over and wait for you." Jun Mengchen's figure flashed. Qin Yuanfeng stared at Jun Mengchen's figure as he smiled. "Wentian, this junior brother of yours isn't ordinary."
