Archean Eon Art - Chapter 394
Chapter 394 – Twelve Cornerstone Treasures
“The ceremony of becoming a Sect Proprietor will be held later,” said Li Guan. “Before that, we have to tell you the truth about Archean Mountain.”
“The truth?” Meng Chuan’s heart stirred.
“Due to the rules set by Ancestral Master Archean. Our Archean Mountain has hidden some key powers from the outside world,” said Li Guan. “The main one is our 12 cornerstone treasures. Previously, our Archean Mountain only had nine cornerstone treasures. The three you brought back have greatly boosted our Archean Mountain’s foundation.
“The first cornerstone treasure is Ancestral Master Archean Eon’s legacy,” said Li Guan. “The complete legacy goes from an ordinary Godfiend to the Creation realm, the Imperial Lord realm, all the way to the Seventh Tribulation realm. The weapons, cultivation methods, special places suitable for cultivation, and precious resources are comprehensively prepared.
“As long as one inherits Ancestral Master Archean Eon’s legacy, they will be able to receive the best nurturing available in the entire human world. They can be said to be blessed by the heavens. In human history, those who became invincible Creation realm experts were mostly recipients of Ancestral Master Archean Eon’s legacy,” said Li Guan. “This is also an important reason why our Archean Mountain can maintain our strength for a long time.”
After the Archean Eon Sect split up, more than half of the invincible Creation realm experts in the world originated from Archean Mountain. How could Archean Mountain not be strong?
“However, it’s very difficult to obtain the legacy through the Samsara trial.” Li Guan smiled at Meng Chuan.
Meng Chuan nodded. “Powerful legacies naturally have requirements.” Luo Tang smiled and said, “However, there’s a genius in our era that has passed the Samsara trial and obtained Ancestral Master Archean Eon’s legacy. His surname is also Meng.”
Meng Chuan’s eyes lit up. “His surname is Meng?” His son was extremely talented and had cultivated the Samsara Divine Body.
Could it be that…
“It’s Meng An,” said Li Guan with a smile. “His bloodline is indeed extraordinary. With a father like you, it’s no wonder Meng An can be so outstanding at such a young age. However, the difference between him and you is that he hasn’t experienced the crucible of war, nor has he experienced true tempering.”
Previously, they believed that Meng An had a chance of becoming an invincible Creation realm expert. However, they estimated that it would take at least 200 years. Holding out for another 200 years was very difficult.
Meng An’s father, Meng Chuan, was even more monstrous. He had extremely high potential in two aspects, even when compared with illustrious historical figures. He would at least become an Imperial Lord. The potential to become an Imperial Lord! Meng Chuan also had a chance of reaching the Tribulation realm! He was the genius closest to Ancestral Master Archean Eon.
“An’er is still young. He will have his experiences in the future.” Meng Chuan was still very happy. Although he had obtained the Essence Soul mystic technique legacy of Eminence Fei Yu, it was only a mystic technique. As for how to cultivate it? What cultivation resources did he have available to him? What powerful weapons did he have? What cultivation grounds were suitable for him? There was none. All he had was the mystic technique.
As for Meng An, he was considered a true legacy disciple! He was groomed in every aspect. “The second cornerstone treasure is that hall.” Li Guan pointed at the tallest hall. It was also the hall that contained many Origins treasures such as Scarlet Cloud Heaven, Clear Sky, and the others. It was also the entrance to this Grotto-Heaven.
“This is the Heaven and Earth Great Hall.” Li Guan said, “It’s also the World Origins of the entire human world.”
“World Origins?” Meng Chuan was taken aback.
Qin Wu sighed as well. “Back then, Ancestral Master Archean Eon revealed the human race’s World Origins. He refined the Heaven and Earth Great Hall to protect the World Origins and also greatly strengthen the World Origins! He raised the entire human world from a low-level world to a middle-level world. With this qualitative change, it made it much easier for humans to cultivate in the world.”
“For example, your Origins treasure, Clear Sky, comes from this Heaven and Earth Great Hall,” said Qin Wu with a smile. “Of course, maintaining a few Origin treasures is only its most inconspicuous function. It has other great uses. The first is to guard Archean Mountain. It mobilizes the Heaven and Earth Great Hall’s powers to guard the entire Archean Mountain.
“As long as a Supremacy activates the array formation or three Regis Godfiends do so simultaneously, they can perfectly defend Archean Mountain. Even if several Imperial Lords jointly attack, they won’t be able to breach Archean Mountain.”
Qin Wu looked at Meng Chuan. “It’s precisely because he had the confidence to defend the sect that Ancestral Master Archean was willing to let other sects grow.”
“This Heaven and Earth Great Hall has another main function,” said Li Guan with a solemn expression. “It can trigger the world’s Origins powers completely. With the World Destruction Array in the Heaven and Earth Great Hall, it can destroy all areas outside Archean Mountain. That would mean World Annihilation.”
“World Annihilation?” Meng Chuan jolted.
“That’s right. Ancestral Master Archean Eon had also considered the possibility of powerful external enemies invading the human world in the future,” said Li Guan. “If we humans can’t withstand the invasion, what should we do? The final solution is to end the world! Us humans shall hide in Archean Mountain and destroy all areas outside Archean Mountain. All living beings will be annihilated.
“The Archean Eon Sect’s former territory is where Archean Mountain stands today,” said Li Guan. “After the destruction of the world, we will allow the mortals holed up in Archean Mountain to leave the mountain and reproduce.
“World Annihilation is the most painful choice for us humans when facing powerful enemies.” Li Guan looked at Meng Chuan. “After all, Archean Mountain can only accommodate a limited number of mortals. Once it’s destroyed, more than 99% of the living beings in this world will die. All cities, vegetation, rivers, and lakes will be destroyed. Everything will have to reproduce.”
Meng Chuan nodded.
“The Heaven and Earth Great Hall still has some other tricks up its sleeves. Once you become a Sect Proprietor, you can slowly learn about them,” said Li Guan. “The third cornerstone treasure is the Archean Eon Grotto-Heaven that you once entered.”
“Archean Eon Grotto-Heaven is a place that stores the opportunities Ancestral Master Archean Eon obtained during his long travels of the River of Spacetime. He found these opportunities very unique. Therefore, he collected them and placed them in Archean Eon Grotto-Heaven. Only extremely monstrous geniuses are qualified to enter Archean Eon Grotto-Heaven, allowing those geniuses to obtain an opportunity that is the most suitable for them. It’s like adding wings to a tiger, allowing them to soar into the sky,” said Li Guan. “In history, Archean Eon Grotto-Heaven’s opportunities are very important. Many seniors like Supremacy Great Strength and Myriad Sword Island Lord have obtained opportunities in Archean Eon Grotto-Heaven, allowing them to rise rapidly. Even you, Meng Chuan, have obtained an opportunity in Archean Eon Grotto-Heaven.
“It’s just that during Archean Eon Sect’s era, Archean Eon Grotto-Heaven was opened too many times. The opportunities in it are decreasing.” Li Guan sighed. “By the time Archean Mountain formed, the number of times we could open it naturally had to be reduced grealy. Otherwise, it would be depleted very quickly. Of the three most important treasures out of the 12 cornerstone treasures, Archean Eon Grotto-Heaven will probably disappear first.”
“That’s right. Archean Eon Grotto-heaven’s remaining opportunities are less than 10% of what it originally had,” said Luo Tang.
“The Archean Eon Sect consumed too many treasures and resources during its time,” said Qin Wu.
“Back then, Ancestral Master Archean reserved these three cornerstone treasures and let Ancestral Master Eon Sea to choose from the other nine,” said Li Guan. “The remaining nine cornerstone treasures are equally extraordinary. The fourth one is an arm.”
“An arm?” Meng Chuan was stunned.
“We don’t know its secrets either,” said Li Guan. “Ancestral Master Archean Eon set up an array formation around it. One has to reach the Imperial Lord level before they can know the secrets to this arm. According to our predecessors, who became Imperial Lords, they rank it as the fourth most important cornerstone treasure.
“The fifth cornerstone treasure, follow me…” said Li Guan.
Meng Chuan couldn’t help but click his tongue when he learned about the sect’s 12 cornerstone treasures. He finally realized just how deep a sect’s—one created by a Seventh Tribulation Eminence-foundation was.
The demons have a longer history than us. They have given birth to more Tribulation realm experts. More than one has reached the Physical Body Sixth Tribulation realm. Meng Chuan immediately became alert. I have to be more careful.
After learning about the cornerstone treasures, Meng Chuan returned to the Heaven and Earth Great Hall.
Inside the Heaven and Earth Great Hall.
The black-robed, long-browed elder and the two other Guardians had also arrived. They were the three Guardians from Archean Eon Sect’s earliest days.
“Once you become a Sect Proprietor, you will protect the sect and the human race. This is not to change until you die. Meng Chuan, do you understand?” The three Guardians stood in front of Meng Chuan, while Li Guan, Qin Wu, and Luo Tang watched from the side.
“I, Meng Chuan, will guard the sect and guard the human race. I will never stop until I die,” Meng Chuan swore an oath in the Heaven and Earth Great Hall.
The leader, a Guardian giant, handed a golden token to Meng Chuan. “King Eastcalm, Meng Chuan, you will be Archean Mountain’s fourth Sect Proprietor from today onwards.” “I accept the order.” Meng Chuan received the token solemnly.
