Chapter 427 – The Three Most Threatening Godfiends
Although he was puzzled, Meng Chuan quickly flew towards King True Martial.
Meng Chuan saw King True Martial standing alone on a hill. King True Martial sensed him and looked up.
“Junior Brother Meng,” said King True Martial with a smile.
“Senior Brother.” Meng Chuan landed.
“Summon the Dao Protector out as well,” said King True Martial.
Meng Chuan was somewhat surprised. Few outsiders knew about the secret Dao Protectors. However, King True Martial had an extremely high status in Archean Mountain. His knowledge of secrets wasn’t far from that of a Sect Proprietor. Furthermore, he was designated to be the next Dao Protector. He naturally knew that Dao Protectors usually meditated if they wanted to stay lucid for the short period of time that they had. Each period of lucidity was very precious.
Meng Chuan first awakened the Dao Protector before moving him out of the Grotto-Heaven Magic Bead.
“Dao Protector,” said King True Martial politely.
“King True Martial, why did you wake me up?” asked Wang Shan. “I’ll tell all of you when Senior Brother Peng and Senior Brother Yun arrive,” explained King True Martial. As they chatted, two figures flew over from afar. They were the fat elder—Peng Mu—and the goateed elder, Yun Jianhai. They landed on the hill.
“Everyone is here.” King True Martial looked at everyone and said, “Everyone hasn’t encountered a demon monarch in the past two days, right?”
Meng Chuan, Dao Protector, Peng Mu, and Yun Jianhai shook their heads.
Nobody has encountered a single one? Meng Chuan immediately guessed. Are the demons frightened to the point that they fled? “Two days ago, the demon monarchs left the World Gap,” explained King True Martial.
Peng Mu nodded and said, “I sensed that many areas in the World Gap were destroyed repeatedly two days ago. Back then, I suspected that some demon monarchs had left the World Gap. I also wondered if a powerful demon monarch was sent in.”
“I also sensed it. Furthermore, the areas that were destroyed were connected to the Demon Realm,” said King True Martial.
The Demon Realm and the human world were two separate locations. The World Gap was connected to the two, but the connection points for each world naturally differed. From the areas where the world membranes had been destroyed, one could determine if they were heading to the human world or the Demon Realm.
The world membrane was destroyed in several spots? Meng Chuan muttered to himself.
He hadn’t sensed it at all. Typically, one had to reach the Grotto-Heaven realm before they could pry into the River of Spacetime’s secrets and sense the distant world membrane that had been shattered.
“Most importantly, Archean Mountain sent a Godfiend in with a message,” said King True Martial. “It has been confirmed that all fifth Firmament demon monarchs in the Demon Realm were summoned by the Imperial Lords two days ago. This news was obtained from Black Sand Grotto-Heaven. They then informed Archean Mountain and Two World Island.”
“All fifth Firmament demon monarchs in the Demon Realm were summoned?” Meng Chuan, Dao Protector, Peng Mu, and Yun Jianhai were enlightened.
“I’ve gathered Black Sand Grotto-Heaven and Two World Island. The three sects’ teams will gather and decide our next steps,” said King True Martial.
Another hour passed.
The three Godfiends from Black Sand Grotto-Heaven and two Godfiends from Two World Island came as well.
“All the Godfiends are here,” said King True Martial with a smile. There were a total of ten Godfiends present. They were the full force responsible for battling fifth Firmament demon monarchs in the World Gap. Each of them had received the greatest nurturing from their respective sects.
“Hahaha, this is the first time I’ve seen so many Godfiends here,” said a red-haired elder with a laugh. He was the leader of Black Sand Grotto-Heaven’s team, King Molten. Beside him was a black-robed, middle-aged man in silver armor, King Northcleanse.
King Molten smiled and said, “All fifth Firmament demon monarchs have been gathered. They are currently in Lady Blackmoon’s-one of the Demon Realm’s Imperial Lords-palace. This news was obtained by Black Sand Grotto-Heaven. Even if we search the entirety of the World Gap, it will be impossible to find a demon monarch.”
Everyone present listened.
“That’s because we attacked the demon monarchs previously. The demon monarchs that survived also learned about us,” said King Molten. “The Demon Realm’s Imperial Lords made all the demon monarchs write down whatever they know about us. I’m afraid they know almost everything about us.”
“That will be troublesome,” said King True Martial solemnly. “Only by knowing yourself and your enemy will our probability of victory be higher. Previously, our miraculous results, from the battles we initiated—was thanks to the demons’ lack of understanding of our strength. Now that they know our strength, they definitely won’t let us succeed easily.”
“Yes.” King Molten nodded. “Let me tell you first. From what we know from the Demon Realm, the demon monarchs have communicated and determined the three most threatening Godfiends.”
“The first is naturally you, King True Martial.” King Molten’s eyes lit up as he looked at King True Martial. “Your domain is extremely terrifying. As long as your domain envelops them, the demon monarchs will die without a doubt. As for close combat? Nobody can withstand a single strike from you. They are certain that your current strength is on par with Monarch Peacock. You are superior to all the other Regis Godfiends and fifth Firmament demon monarchs. Monarch Peacock and you are each side’s strongest entity in the World Gap.”
“I failed to kill all of them in a one-against many fight. Some managed to slip through the cracks.” King True Martial shook his head gently. If not for those who slipped through the cracks, the demons wouldn’t have new intelligence on him.
“The second is King Thousand Wood from Two World Island.” King Molten looked at the tall, ancient-looking Godfiend. “With King Thousand Wood’s Essence Soul mystic technique, once his black awl connects, any demon monarch that gets hit will definitely die. They are certain that you have a sixth-level Essence Soul.”𝐟𝓇eℯ𝒘𝙚𝚋𝓃𝐨𝘷𝗲Ɩ. co𝓶
King Thousand Wood was an ancient Godfiend that had slept for centuries. Before he slumbered, he only had a fifth-level Essence Soul. After waking up, he was filled with grief and indignation when faced with the war. After that, he created his own moves. While doing so, he sought answers from his inner self and attained a sixth-level Essence Soul after breaking through.
There were dozens of Regis Godfiendsincluding the Dao Protectors and those still slumbering-in total. But even so, only two of them had sixth-level Essence Souls. Dao Protector Wang Shan had attained a sixth-level Essence Soul when he was 300 years old. King Thousand Wood attained a sixth-level Essence Soul when he was 450 years old.
After breaking through, Two World Island placed great importance on him, allowing King Thousand Wood to slumber once again. In order to complete the mission in the World Gap, they awakened him again.
After King Thousand Wood learned the Magic Awl Forbidden Spell, he didn’t hesitate to use 30% of his Essence Soul’s Origins to cultivate the Magic Awl because he only had a normal body and was close to the end of his lifespan. He used ordinary Essence Soul mystic techniques when dealing with ordinary demon monarchs. When dealing with powerful demon monarchs, he would wipe out their Essence Soul with the Magic Awl.
“The third is King Eastcalm.” King Molten looked at Meng Chuan.
Meng Chuan was surprised.
He was ranked third among the most threatening Godfiends? None of the Godfiends present were easy to deal with.
“King Eastcalm’s speed is inconceivable. In a flash, he can traverse 250 kilometers. King Molten looked at Meng Chuan. “In a one-on-one battle, most demon monarchs will find it difficult to escape your pursuit.”
When faced with other Godfiends, all the demon monarchs needed to do was widen the distance between them before fleeing underground.
However, when they faced against Meng Chuan? Apart from a few people, none could shake off Meng Chuan.
Back then, Demon Sage Nine Abyss was forced to flee to the outer realm because he couldn’t escape Meng Chuan. “He can travel 250 kilometers in a second?” Many Godfiends were astonished by King Molten’s words; they quickly glanced at Meng Chuan.
Meng Chuan’s speed was simply insane. Nobody could catch up to him if he wanted to flee! When he pursued enemies, 99% could not escape from him.
“The demons have also gathered information regarding other Godfiends to a certain extent. They are guessing that humanity has definitely used and given us many treasures,” said King Molten.
