999 There’s More Than One God in This World!
Time flew by and soon two days had passed.
Lin Huang spent the past two days in the hotel room practicing his sword skills. He even handed the task of eavesdropping on the God Bless members to Bloody which relayed the important messages to him.
Apart from learning about the time and venue of the Crow God Ceremony, he did not only learned about the mission this time, but he even heard many God Bless secrets.
The founder of God Bless was called the Master God and his combat strength and ability were unknown. He had been in hiding for hundreds of years and had just come back to take over God Bless again.
That was also the reason why God Bless was active lately all of a sudden.
Below the Master God were four God's Messengers whose combat strength was unknown as well.
However, judging from Shen Yu's respect towards the God's Messengers, the four of them might most probably be virtual god-level powerhouses. Shen Yu was a demigod himself, after all, and only Virtual Gods could make a demigod fear for them.
Then, there were Commanders below the four God's Messengers.
The Commanders were in charge of all of the branches in the entire safety zone. Some safety zones had one Commander while some had a main Commander and a Deputy Commander.
The guy with the surname Feng whom Shen Yu mentioned earlier was Commander Feng Li. He was currently leading God Bless in Division 3, and he managed all three branches in Division 3.
The reason Shen Yu despised him was that the latter who had more experience was supposed to be appointed as the new Commander since the past Division 3 Commander was re-assigned. Never had he thought that Feng Li would appear out of nowhere. Not only Feng Li was given a massive amount of god's blood and elevated to perfect-stage demigod-level despite only going on very few missions, but he was also assigned to be the Commander of Division 3.
Since Shen Yu secretly had the most complaints towards Feng Li, Bloody knew a lot about him.
Almost half of the Commanders from God Bless had the same combat strength as Feng Li whereby they were on perfect-stage demigod-level.
Perfect-stage demigod-level would mean that 100% of the Life Power in the demigod-levels' bodies could transform into Divine Power. On a certain level, such a person was close to Virtual God. Powerhouses on perfect-stage demigod-level would have their flesh and soul washed completely with a sea of Divine Power, practically reaching Virtual God standard. Their ability was comparable with a virtual god-level rank-1 who had just elevated. People would easily mistake their combat strength as a virtual god-level powerhouse by sense.
However, the broken Godhead in their bodies made the construction of God Territory impossible. They could not produce Divine Power naturally, and could only replenish it from external sources.
Below Commanders were the Captains of each branch, which was Shen Yu's current position at God Bless.
All of the Captains of God Bless had demigod-level combat strength; that was the mandatory condition of being a Captain.
God Bless had a couple of branches in the three core safety zones. For instance, Division 3 had three branches while Division 1 and Division 2 had more.
After the Captains came the normal members.
God Bless did not have many members. They were basically on high immortal-level and imperial-level. Each branch had few members with only 20 to 30 members or over 100 members at the most.
Comparatively, God Bless might have more spies allocated in each organization than their members.
Naturally, the spies followed another system that was entirely different from the system Shen Yu and the rest followed. Even the intel branches of each division were unrelated.
Shen Yu only chatted about that with his few underlings once and it was just a short conversation, so Bloody obtained very limited information from that.
Lin Huang frowned when Bloody was telling him that information.
"Are you sure those four God's Messengers are Virtual Gods?" That was the first question Lin Huang asked after hearing what Bloody said.
"It's confirmed. Shen Yu has no respect for this perfect-stage demigod-level Feng Li. Him taking Shen Yu's position aside, Feng Li is just a demigod to him even though he's on perfect-stage demigod-level. He's not as powerful as Shen Yu who could easily get to perfect-stage demigod-level as long as he obtains sufficient god's blood. Therefore, he has no respect for Commanders.
"However, he's always calling God's Messengers 'Master God's Messenger' and dares not cross the line. He clearly respects them. It's impossible for Shen Yu to fear perfect-stage demigod-levels.
"However, according to the cultivation system in our gravel world, it's impossible for someone to elevate to Virtual God." Lin Huang was very much aware of the current cultivation system's flaw. Indeed, just like what the stone tablet said, it was impossible for someone to elevate to Virtual God.
"The current cultivation system can't do that, but what if they're cultivating using the old cultivation system?" Bloody voiced its opinion, "Or maybe they're like Mr. Fu whereby they're Virtual Gods who survived the ancient era?"
"According to historical records, many powerhouses' bodies weren't found during the battle 800 years ago. Perhaps most of them were eaten by monsters but we can't rule out the possibility that there were some Virtual Gods who hid and healed from the battle."
Lin Huang could not argue about what Bloody said because it was indeed possible.
"I personally think that these Virtual Gods elevated by integrating Godheads," the stone tablet voiced its opinion out of the blue.
"Why would you say that?" Lin Huang asked immediately.
"Otherwise, where did the Godheads of Gods who died during the ancient era go when their bodies were found?" The stone tablet was calm as it posed the question.
What the stone tablet said terrified Lin Huang. There might be millions of Gods that died during the ancient era. Even if most of them remained unfound, as long as a minority of the Godheads were found by major organizations, they could manufacture many Gods from there.
"Judging from what you said, it's very possible that the Master God of God Bless is a True God." Lin Huang thought his view of the world was now completely shaken.
He had always thought Mr. Fu was the only God in this gravel world. However, now it seemed like this gravel world was much more dangerous than he imagined.
"If that's the case, fighting God Bless is much more difficult than I expected." Lin Huang looked helpless.
"I was thinking why would God Bless have to be secretive in their missions if they really had such power, especially when Bloody mentioned they might have four Virtual Gods? They could totally wipe out all the organizations in the entire world under the sun, making them the overlord of the gravel world.
"However, now it seems like organizations such as the Union Government and the Hunter Association might have more hidden god-level powerhouses. God Bless doesn't announce their power not because they can't, but because they know very well that there are even more powerful organizations that exist in this world."
Lin Huang soon connected the dots after the stone tablet reminded him about it.
"These god-level powerhouses haven't shown up for hundreds of years. They might've come to an agreement with all the organizations not to reveal themselves. Just like the game theory of deterrent forces that all the countries applied on Earth…"
