Archean Eon Art - Chapter 464
Chapter 464 – The Final Attack (2)
Meng Chuan, King Molten, King Thousand Wood, King Calm Sea, Peng Mu, and the other Godfiends silently followed the demon team.
“It’s out?” Meng Chuan held the black mirror, which clearly revealed what was happening at the center of the demons’ array formation. Patriarch Poison Dragon, Demon Sage Peacock, and Holy Lady Strings escorted a figureDemon Sage Deep Profundity. “If Demon Sage Deep Profundity wants to complete the map, it will definitely have to come out. It looks like the demons aren’t willing to drag this out,” said King Molten excitedly. “It has appeared. We can risk it again.” King Thousand Wood stared into the distance.
“It’s fake.” A voice sounded.
Meng Chuan, King Molten, King Calm Sea, King Thousand Wood, Peng Mu, and company all turned to look.
King True Martial sat cross-legged. Black-and-white gas streams spread out in all directions, forming a blob of gas that enveloped King True Martial. Meng Chuan and company couldn’t see him at all.
“There’s no need to doubt it. It’s fake.” King True Martial’s voice continued to ring out from the black-and-white gas. “They’re trying to bait us into attacking and expend our treasures.”
“That’s right. This war has lasted for more than 800 years. Now that it’s the critical moment, how can the demons not have patience?” said Peng Mu.
In the demon team. “Could it be that they have seen through it?” Monarch Peacock asked curiously. “Its demonic aura and Essence Soul aura are perfectly disguised. Furthermore, it’s more than 50 kilometers away from them. How did they see through its disguise?” said Patriarch Poison Dragon via voice transmission.
Holy Lady Strings watched the Godfiends from afar with her domain. “These experts in front of us are the strongest Regis Godfiends in the human world. Many of them are very old. Most of them will be at the end of their lifespans if we waste 20 to 30 years of their time. They will die of old age. In the World Gap, humans are weaker than us. Furthermore, they have been tailing us all this time. They don’t dare to relax at all… King Eastcalm won’t have time to cultivate either. If we drag this battle on for another 20 to 30 years, the situation will be advantageous for us.”
King Molten only had ten years left to live. King Thousand Wood, Peng Mu, and company would all die of old age in 30 years. Many of the ancient Regis Godfiends had survived to this day due to humanity’s slumber mystic technique. However, these ancient Regis Godfiends were too old. They had spent quite some time guarding the cities; they had also spent 16 years in the World Gap. They were nearing the end of their lifespans.
“If they are tricked into taking the initiative to attack, it’ll be good if we can waste a few of their treasures. We might even be able to kill a few Godfiends,” said Patriarch Poison Dragon via voice transmission. “If we are to stall for time, we shall follow the Imperial Lord’s instructions and wait 20 to 30 years. This war has gone on for more than 800 years. Waiting 20 to 30 years is nothing.” “Hahaha, if humans were to risk their lives and discover that this Demon Sage Deep Profundity is just a clone of Patriarch Poison Dragon, that would be wonderful.”
They secretly sent voice transmissions as they discussed the situation.
However, time passed quickly. Although the human Godfiends followed the demons, they didn’t attack.
The demon team flew towards different areas in the World Gap at high speeds.
Everywhere the demons went, the humans followed.
Both sides were very cautious, not daring to relax.
One day, two days, three days passed.
“We have pretended to draw the map of connection points, but the human Godfiends still haven’t taken action,” said Patriarch Poison Dragon via voice transmission. “We can travel across the World Gap and complete the map in ten days. Three days is enough for us to draw a small portion of the map, yet they are just watching us?”
“They definitely won’t allow Demon Sage Deep Profundity to draw the map freely. Since they haven’t taken action in three days, they are certain that this Demon Sage Deep Profundity is fake,” said Monarch Peacock via voice transmission.
“How did they tell that it’s a fake?” Patriarch Poison Dragon was puzzled. “I used a treasure
– bestowed by the Imperial Lords—to disguise my clone. The disguise is pretty good.”
“Don’t underestimate the humans,” said Monarch Peacock via voice transmission.
The human team.
It’s been three days. Meng Chuan glanced at the black-and-white blob. Senior Brother, it should be about time.
The black-and-white fog enveloped King True Martial. It had been like this for the past three days.
Only Meng Chuan and King True Martial knew the detailed battle plan for the World Gap.
Inside the black-and-white blob.
King True Martial sat cross-legged. A strange strawman floated in front of him. Every blade of straw that was weaved into the strawman had many runes carved into it. The strawman emitted a strange aura that made one’s heart palpitate.
King True Martial tapped the strawman with his finger, and a bloody dot immediately appeared at the spot he hit. I’ve been praying for three days. Time is up. Through the strawman, King True Martial could sense a hiding lifeform-Demon Sage Deep Profundity-inside a small grotto-heaven.
Why was he able to identify that the Demon Sage Deep Profundity outside was fake?
It was because the strawman and Demon Sage Deep Profundity’s fates had begun to connect gradually. Through the strawman, he could determine where the real Demon Sage Deep Profundity was.
This is our final gamble, thought King True Martial.
Sixteen years ago.
Before they left for the World Gap
“If you can’t attack the demon sage possessors because they are hiding, you will only have one option left.” Li Guan flipped his hand, and a strawman appeared in his hand. He said, “This is a Fate Strawman. One needs to have insights into the karma lineage before they can use it. With this, one can kill a demon sage possessor from afar.
“I don’t have much knowledge of the karma lineage,” said King True Martial hesitantly.
“In terms of technique realm, you are the best among the Regis Godfiends. You are comparable to Qin Wu and me,” said Li Guan with a smile. “Considering your technique realm, you should be able to sense karma clearly. As long as you study the karma lineage a little, you can use this Fate Strawman.”
King True Martial was indeed able to sense karma. His True Martial lineage had reached the Grotto-Heaven realm’s late stage. It was comparable to an average Creation Supremacy’s perfected Grotto-Heaven realm technique.
The moment one stepped into the Grotto-Heaven realm, one would gradually gain the ability to sense karma. The higher one’s technique realm was, the clearer the karma was. King True Martial could sense karma extremely clearly. After some meditation, it wasn’t difficult for him to use the treasure.
“The detailed method of using the Fate Strawman is in this book.” Li Guan handed King True Martial a book. “During the mission in the World Gap, you are the strongest. Your life-preservation means are also the strongest. Thus, I’ll hand the Lightning Explosive Beads, the Fate Strawman, the Soul Nurturing Kettle, and many other treasures to you.”
An illusory Qin Wu, an illusory Luo Tang, and Meng Chuan stood beside Li Guan. The four Sect Proprietors had clearly agreed to these treasures being used. “Okay.” King True Martial received the treasures.𝗳re𝚎𝚠𝐞𝗯𝙣𝗼ν𝗲l. c૦𝓶
“We will try our best to stop them in the human world. If we can’t stop them, we can only rely on you two.” Li Guan looked at King True Martial before looking at Meng Chuan.
“Supremacy, don’t worry,” said Meng Chuan.
“Don’t worry, Master,” said King True Martial.
King True Martial looked at the strawman in front of him and immediately pointed at the strawman’s head. He said solemnly, “Demon Sage Deep Profundity, you shall die today!”
He had pointed at the strawman without any hesitation.
A terrifying force passed through the tip of his finger and entered the strawman’s head.
Within a small grotto-heaven.
The Imperial Lords want me to wait patiently. Since that’s the case, I shall just wait patiently then. Demon Sage Deep Profundity sat cross-legged on the grass. He was the only living being in the small grotto-heaven.
Suddenly, a mysterious force descended.
The force attacked him unpredictably as it descended upon his Essence Soul.
This is— Demon Sage Deep Profundity only felt his consciousness rumble. In the face of this mysterious and terrifying attack, his Essence Soul disintegrated, causing him to die on the spot.
His body continued to sit cross-legged, but it no longer emanated any auras.
Meng Chuan and company saw the black-white gas dissipate.
The strawman in front of King True Martial exploded and turned into dust completely.
King True Martial smiled. It’s done.
After the black-white gas dissipated, Meng Chuan and company immediately saw King True Martial sitting cross-legged. His long black hair had turned white, and his face had turned wizened. He even emitted an aura of death.
He smiled at Meng Chuan and company.
“King True Martial.” King Molten and Peng Mu were in disbelief; they had no idea what had happened.
“Senior Brother.” Meng Chuan immediately rushed towards King True Martial.
“Demon Sage Deep Profundity is dead,” said King True Martial happily. “Junior Brother Meng, in order to kill him, I burned my Essence Soul.”
Meng Chuan’s eyes turned red. “You didn’t have to do this.”
To kill Deep Profundity, King True Martial just needed to expend 100 years of his lifespan. Just by doing this, he would have a high chance of killing Deep Profundity with the Fate Strawman. After that, he could live his remaining lifespan in a Dao Protector’s body. By doing this, he could live for over 1,000 years.
However, King True Martial was afraid that it wouldn’t be powerful enough. He was afraid that the attack would fail. Due to his doubts, he completely expended his remaining lifespan and burned his Essence Soul. This attack came at the cost of King True Martial’s life.
“I’ve done everything I can.” King True Martial’s Essence Soul dissipated as he continued smiling. “I’ll leave the rest to you.”
King True Martial’s consciousness dissipated as his body collapsed.
The moment his consciousness dissipated, he saw his entire life.He was once a dazzling expert in his generation, even more dazzling than Xue Feng and Meng Chuan when they were young. He was even more dazzling than two of the strongest Supremacies-Qin Wu and Bai Yaoyue-when they were young.
His talent made Li Guan excited and delighted. Due to his outstanding talent, Archean Mountain had opened Archean Eon Grotto-heaven for him. They believed that he was the peerless genius that would save humanity…
However, he had encountered emotional setbacks. He doubted his cultivation path and life, causing him to fall to his lowest point in life. As time passed heartlessly, he rebuilt himself from the beginning. He arrogantly took the foundations of an Imperial Lord-level ultimate technique-Yin-Yang Art-and created the True Martial Seven Absolutes.
The moment he showcased his True Martial Seven Absolutes’s strength, he was immediately recognized as the number one Regis Godfiend in the world. Even as a Regis Godfiend, he could match a Creation Supremacy. However, he had regrets in his life. He was never able to let go of these regrets. These regrets caused him to stay single his entire life.
I haven’t let my regrets go my entire life. As he sighed, his consciousness completely dissipated.
Meng Chuan, King Calm Sea, Peng Mu, King Molten, and King Thousand Wood looked at King True Martial’s lifeless corpse. All of them were filled with grief.
Another companion had died. Furthermore, he was the strongest Regis Godfiend of the present generation. He died in battle for the sake of humanity.
“Senior Brother Wang, rest in peace!” said King Calm Sea softly.
