Chapter 1455: Nine Serene Spring
the Falling Star Pavilion, the Pill Tower, the Flower Sect, and the
Burning Flame Valley announced the formation of the ‘Sky Mansion
Alliance,’ the entire Central Plains was blasted apart by this extremely
huge bomb. Chaos instantly erupted across the land.
The four big
factions possessed extremely renowned reputations within the Central
Plains. Any one of them could be considered a giant. A faction like the
Pill Tower could no longer be described as a simple giant. This faction
possessed an extremely frightening ability to gather people. It might
have appeared extremely gentle over the years, but as long as one was
not a fool, one would be able to detect the frightening strength hidden
beneath this lazy appearance.
The lineup from the formation of
this alliance between four powerful factions was many times stronger
than the ‘Profound River Alliance’ before. Compared to this newly formed
‘Sky Mansion Alliance,’ the ‘Profound River Alliance’ was an extremely
ordinary shrimp. Just a random finger of the ‘Sky Mansion Alliance’
could destroy the ‘Profound River Alliance.’
imagine how much the strength of this alliance, formed by the four
factions, would swell. If this large alliance were to face the extremely
large Hall of Souls, it would no longer need to feel the least bit
A new super faction that could match the strength of the Hall of Souls was born within the Central Plains.
the Central Plains was in an uproar over this explosive news, many
sects and factions began to think. Everyone in the world thought of
grabbing this giant support to gain good prospects. The strength of this
‘Sky Mansion Alliance’ could only be described as shocking. In the
future, few factions in this world could compare with them. If a faction
or an individual was able to enjoy their protection, it would end up
bringing them many benefits.
Hence, on the third day after this
news was released, the Falling Star Pavilion had suddenly become
extremely lively. The leaders of tons of factions had hurried over a
great distance to reach the Falling Star Pavilion. They were all
requesting to join this alliance.
Yao Lao and Xiao Yan did not
accept all of these requests that came from everywhere. This alliance
was their only capital to fight the Hall of Souls. Naturally, they
viewed it with great importance. Most of these factions were
fence-sitters. They had only come to them because the alliance was
strong. Should the alliance end up losing its power, these people would
immediately leave. At that time, it would be a blow to the alliance’s
morale. Hence, they did not accept these factions, which were like rat
However, there was little need for Xiao Yan to worry about
such matters. Due to this being a busy period of time, Feng zun-zhe, who
had been managing the tasks in the other territories of the Falling
Star Pavilion, had been summoned back by Yao Lao. During these years,
Feng zun-zhe and Yao Lao had managed the external matters and internal
matters of the Falling Star Pavilion. This was a key reason for the
rapid development of the Falling Star Pavilion. Although Feng zun-zhe’s
reputation and strength were both inferior to Yao Lao, he was better at
Yao Lao when it came to management. Hence, Yao Lao hurriedly dispatched
some other Elders to take over Feng zun-zhe’s previous tasks once the
alliance was successful. Then Feng zun-zhe hurried back and resolve all
these troublesome tasks.
There was clearly no need to doubt Feng
zun-zhe’s ability to manage. Soon after returning to the Falling Star
Pavilion, he had begun to settle various tasks. After numerous tasks
were settled in an orderly fashion by Feng zun-zhe, both Xiao Yan and
Yao Lao ended up feeling a little ashamed…
Following the flow of
time, some factions passed the strict selection process and successfully
joined the ‘Sky Mansion Alliance.’ This allowed this alliance’s
reputation to continue rising a little at a time. If this positive cycle
continued, the potential of the ‘Sky Mansion Alliance’ would
undoubtedly be a little frightening with the help of the Pill Tower.
four big factions had made full use this period of time to build the
wormholes. Now, they would be able to rapidly hurry to each other’s aid.
Only then could they be considered an alliance that attacked and
However, Xiao Yan found it a little surprising
that the Hall of Souls did not do anything while the alliance was busy.
It was as though they need not care about this alliance that could
Regardless of what the Hall of Souls did, Xiao
Yan’s group had decided to establish a specialized Information Hall
after some discussions. The aim of this Information Hall was to
investigate all of the branches the Hall of Souls had created across the
Central Plains. One should always know one’s enemy as well as one knows
oneself. The Hall of Souls was their greatest enemy. Hence, the
alliance needed to be aware of their locations. Once the time was ripe,
they might even be able to shift from being passive to being active…
must be said that the cooperation of the four big factions after the
formation of the alliance was extremely great. Within half a month, two
of the branch halls of the Hall of Souls had been discovered. Although
they had suffered some losses during the search, they still ended up
gaining a lot.
Xiao Yan felt the impulse to eliminate these branch
halls personally, but he suppressed this impulse after calming down.
Although the strength of the alliance had been increased, they would end
up in a situation where no one would win if they were to fight to the
death with the Hall of Souls now. This ending was not what Xiao Yan
desired because there was still the even more frightening Hun clan
behind the Hall of Souls.
The alliance might be a sharp weapon
used to fight the Hall of Souls, but it was also a powerful strength to
deter the Hall of Souls. It must possess a powerful strength at all
times. Otherwise, this alliance would ultimately end up in the same
situation as ancestor Xiao Xuan.
This alliance was only in its
infancy. Once everything stabilized in the future, the influence and the
abilities of the Pill Tower might even attract some Ban Sheng or even
some Dou Sheng old demons who were living in isolation. If it was
possible to absorb them into the alliance, they would truly benefit the
Hence, the current ‘Sky Mansion Alliance’ could not be
arrogant just because of the recent increase in strength. They would
only succeed in dealing with the Hall of Souls and the Hun clan if they
accumulated strength slowly and were always well-prepared.
They would quietly gather strength and wait for the proper time to unleash it!
the alliance was searching for the locations of the Hall of Souls, the
alliance also selected some extremely powerful experts to form some
small teams. These teams were created to prevent the Hall of Souls from
continuing to capture the souls of the alliance’s alchemists. These
small teams would roam the territories of the alliance. They would hurry
over at the fastest speed if they discovered any alliance signal that
This special protection undoubtedly pleased the
alchemists from the Pill Tower. Some of the alchemists, who had been
displeased about the Pill Tower giving up its neutral stance, gradually
accepted the protection and the benefits that this alliance provided
One month quietly passed while this alliance was bustling with activity and unleashing a shocking potential…
Yan, Yao Lao, Cai Lin, the Little Fairy Doctor, and some others were
seated in a quiet courtyard within the Falling Star Pavilion. It was a
rare opportunity for them to gather together. This busy period had made
it impossible for all of them to free themselves.
“There has still
been no reaction from the Hall of Souls. If I have guessed correctly,
they should be waiting for the Purifying Demonic Lotus Flame that will
appear in nine months.” Yao Lao lifted his teacup. He sipped from it
before slowly revealing his thoughts.
“How could they know any
information regarding the Purifying Demonic Lotus Flame?” Xiao Yan knit
his brows. This news was something that he had learned after spending
over a decade collecting all the map fragments. How was it possible for
the Hun clan to know of it?
“The things that the Hun clan know far
exceed what you can imagine…” Yao Lao smiled faintly and said. “This is
also not the first time the Purifying Demonic Lotus Flame has appeared.
They have been around for many years, and probably have records of it.”
Yan was a little speechless after hearing this explanation. His hand
rubbed his forehead without realizing it. If the mysterious light inside
of his head was useless, it was really a waste to search for all the
“There are still nine months before the Purifying
Demonic Lotus Flame will appear. You should also make preparations. The
Hall of Souls will definitely dispatch truly strong individuals to
snatch it. Hence, we must try our best to raise our strength as much as
possible.” Yao Lao spoke.
“It is not easy to advance even a little
within the Dou Sheng class. In another three months, I should be able
to reach the one star Dou Sheng intermediate level. At this rate, I will
only, at the very most, be at the peak one star Dku Sheng class after
nine months…” Xiao Yan helplessly uttered.
“I am not talking about
you. I am talking about Cai Lin. She is a Seven-Colored Heaven
Swallowing Python. As long as as she is provided with enough energy, she
will quickly advance to the Ban Sheng class. The Heaven Swallowing
Python’s physical body is strong. She will be able to fight against a
genuine Dou Sheng. If she can advance to the Ban Sheng class, she will
be of great help to you.” Yao Lao laughed. “That little girlfriend of
yours in the Gu clan is rumored to have undertaken a retreat after
leaving the Ancient Wasteland Region. Once she exits her retreat, the Gu
clan will have gained an additional elite Dou Sheng… at that time, if
we call her to join us, she will definitely also be of great help.”
Yan could only bitterly smile after hearing Yao Lao’s words. Cai Lin
and Xun Er both possessed unusually great potential. One of them was a
Seven-Colored Heaven Swallowing Python, an existence even rarer than the
Ancient Void Dragon, while the other possessed the legendary Divine
Bloodline. They would be able to obtain double the results with half the
effort while training. Xiao Yan appeared ordinary when compared to
them, but there was ultimately a lot of unfairness in this world. If
Xiao Yan were to focus on this unfairness, he would not have been able
to attain his current achievements.
“Although a Seven-Colored
Heaven Swallowing Python will be able to advance as long as it has the
energy to do so, the energy required is extremely frightening. Where can
we go and find such a terrifying treasure ground?” Xiao Yan softly
“There is a spot in this world that could help Cai Lin
temper her physical body. Moreover, she is in possession of an extremely
rare ‘nine-colored essence stone.’ If she is very lucky, she might even
be able to evolve into an existence comparable to an Ancient Heaven
Snake King, a Nine-Colored Heaven Swallowing Python!” Yao Lao narrowed
his eyes. He smiled slightly as he spoke.
“Where?” Both Xiao Yan’s and Cai Lin’s eyes swiftly gathered on Yao Lao.
“The Nine Serene Deep Ground Python tribe’s Nine Serene Spring…”
Lao laughed. His eyes suddenly looked at Xiao Yan as he said, “If you
wish to subdue the Purifying Lotus Demon Flame, this Nine Serene Spring
is a place you must visit…”
