Archean Eon Art - Chapter 500
Chapter 500 – That Piece Of Flesh
The bearded man’s conditions were rather harsh for a cultivator who had the ambition to become a Tribulation Eminence.
He had to accept a Supremacy from Pang Ming Realm as his disciple?
On average, a Supremacy would appear in Pang Ming Realm every 1,000 years. If Meng Chuan were to become a Tribulation Eminence, what would happen if no Supremacy was available in Pang Ming Realm? Would he have to wait 1,000 years? What if the future Supremacy reached the perfected Grotto-Heaven realm in Pang Ming Realm? That Supremacy might choose to enter the outer realm after they had no remaining regrets in their homeworld. What should Meng Chuan do if the Supremacy died the moment they entered the outer realm? Before Meng Chuan could find the Supremacy? Did he have to wait for the next Supremacy to be born?
Furthermore, it takes an average of 1,000 years for a Supremacy to rise? What if it took thousands of years before a Supremacy from Pang Ming realm entered the outer realm? This karma would affect him for thousands of years.
The development of things was ultimately unpredictable. Meng Chuan had read the sect’s books and knew that he would really be blindly groping in the darkness after becoming a Tribulation Eminence!
Supremacies and Imperial Lords had a clear cultivation path. Imperial Lords only needed to make their Heaven Earths more perfected. Therefore, karma had limited effects on Imperial Lords. However, Tribulation Eminences groped about in the darkness. They didn’t even know if they had cultivated wrongly, so the effects of karma interference were very great. “Think carefully,” said the bearded man indifferently. He raised his head and drank. “Think carefully. Don’t regret it.” “I choose to accept it,” said Meng Chuan with a smile.
They didn’t know each other to begin with, so how could this Tribulation Eminence give him treasures for free? In the cultivation world, love didn’t come for no reason. The law of the jungle was the most common.
For many years, be it Qiyue, my parents, the Godfiends of Archean Eon Realm, or me, our greatest wish has been to win the war against the Demon Realm. Even if I owe karma, I have to grow stronger as soon as possible! The stronger I am, the greater the probability of ending this war in our favor.
His number one goal was to win the war. Compared to reaching the Tribulation realm, it was 100, or even 1,000 times more important! Just some karma was nothing.
“Very good.” The bearded man smiled when he saw this. “Everything I left behind will now be yours.”
A stream of light flew into Meng Chuan’s consciousness. It contained everything left behind by Pang Ming. Following that, a loud whoosh reverberated!
The entire illusory world began to collapse. “I traveled the outer realm alone for 28,000 years, only to stop at the Fifth Tribulation realm in the end,” muttered Pang Ming as he held a calabash in his hand. His figure disintegrated along with the illusory world. Meng Chuan silently watched this scene. All Tribulation Eminences aided their homeworlds not because they were ‘grateful,’ but because of karma!
A huge debt of gratitude would arise when a world produced an expert. This karma between the expert and their homeworld was extremely important! Therefore, weaker Tribulation Eminences would place many treasures in their homeworld. Although their true bodies in their homeworld carried these treasures, as long as the treasures were in their homeworld, it would be considered part of their homeworld. This was also a form of compensation to their homeworld. After reaching the Sixth Tribulation realm, all Tribulation Eminences would try their best to upgrade their low-level world to a middle-level world. If they were from middle-level worlds, they had to work hard on expanding the middle-level world and strengthening the world’s Origins. Upon reaching the Eighth Tribulation realmwhich Eminence Fei Yu had done-one could upgrade homeworld to a high-level world.
This Tribulation Eminence, Pang Ming, failed his tribulation. Before he died, he only asked me to help Pang Ming Realm’s cultivators. He really has true feelings for his homeworld, thought Meng Chuan. It’s very rare for a low-level world to produce a Fifth Tribulation Eminence who cultivates both the Essence Soul and the physical body. He’s the only one in hundreds of millions of years.
My homeworld, Archean Eon Realm, has only existed for a few hundred million years. It’s considered a very young world. Meng Chuan thought of his homeworld. It was also extremely difficult for cultivators of the Godfiend cultivation system to rise to prominence during the world’s early barbaric times. This continued for more than a million years until Ancestral Master Archean Eon rose to prominence. As a Supremacy, he roamed the outer realm alone… He cultivated step by step and became a legendary figure in the River of Spacetime. Meng Chuan sighed. He also gave Archean Eon Realm an extremely robust foundation. The Godfiend cultivation system is very perfected up to the perfected Imperial Lord realm. Meng Chuan was very impressed with Ancestral Master Archean Eon. The first three tribulations were relatively easy. From the Fourth Tribulation realm and onwards, the tribulations would become more difficult to overcome as one advanced on their cultivation path.
Ancestral Master Archean Eon had left a tremendous legacy for his homeworld.
Although the demons had invaded, Archean Mountain still had the option of annihilating the world. As time passed, humanity’s heritage would deepen. However, Meng Chuan, Liu Qiyue, King True Martial, and the other Godfiends-who had participated in the war that has lasted for over 800 years—wanted to win the war.
If they really did choose to go for World Annihilation, it would be very humiliating for Meng Chuan and his generation of Godfiends! They would never be able to remove this thorn in their hearts for the rest of their lives.
They wanted victory, even at the cost of their lives. Meng Chuan was unwilling for the World Annihilation plan to happen. No matter how much karma he was tainted with, he would do his best to become stronger as soon as possible.
The illusory world collapsed. Supremacy Qing Gu regained his consciousness.
What happened to me just now? What happened? Supremacy Qing Gu stood rooted to the ground dazedly. His memories of the illusory world had turned blank. He had lost a portion of his memories. Another memory loss? Supremacy Qing Gu was helpless.
Previously, to gain Meng Chuan’s trust, Supremacy Qing Gu completely wiped his memories of Fang Chang from his Essence Soul! There was no longer a person named Fang Chang in his memories. This was why he couldn’t even tell others that Meng Chuan had murdered Fang Chang. He believed that this was the only way to make Meng Chuan feel at total ease, allowing him to stay alive.
He had already lost two portions of his memories. He had voluntarily removed and wiped away the first portion of memories. However, the second portion of memories had been removed through unknown means.
Supremacy Qing Gu quickly flew to Meng Chuan’s side and said respectfully, “Brother Eastcalm.”
“This cave abode has been breached,” said Meng Chuan. “Continue guarding the outside.”
“Yes,” said Supremacy Qing Gu. Meng Chuan immediately flew into the cave abode. The cave abode was once again filled with fogs. At that moment, Meng Chuan took the initiative to control the cave abode’s array formation. His Chaos Hole Quintessential Essence activated the array formation.
In a courtyard in the cave abode, Meng Chuan sat cross-legged on the crystalline jade ground and began checking his gains.
When I first came to the outer realm, the Bloodblade Disc was the most valuable item I had. However, the Bloodblade Disc is my intrinsic treasure. I definitely won’t sell it. Meng Chuan was somewhat wistful. He had gained quite a bit from Fang Chang—who had adventured the outer realm for years. After all, Blood Yang Realm was a middle-level world. It had a rich heritage.
I’ve really made a killing now. What was the owed karma in comparison? At the very least, he could grow stronger much faster than before! This is a Spatial Pagoda? Meng Chuan looked at the miniature golden pagoda in his palm. It was a Tribulation treasure-Spatial Pagoda.
It could not store living beings-only items or dead objects. However, it was extremely stable!
This Spatial Pagoda’s value was comparable to a Fifth Tribulation treasure. Just the characteristic of ‘stability’ was very important. This was because many treasures in the outer realm were too mystical. Ordinary void bracelets couldn’t store them. Even Meng Chuan’s void bracelet would collapse.
With a thought, the golden pagoda entered Meng Chuan’s dantian space.
I gained one Seventh Tribulation treasure and two Sixth Tribulation treasures. Meng Chuan waved his hand and released the treasures Senior Pang Ming often used from the pagoda.
They were a calabash, a robe, and a sledgehammer. The calabash was a Seventh Tribulation treasure.
Although my Bloodblade Disc was refined by a Seventh Tribulation Eminence, it was only refined for his disciple near the end of his life. It’s mainly used for escaping. It can only be considered a Sixth Tribulation treasure. However, Meng Chuan knew that the Bloodblade Disc wasn’t ordinary. The Bloodblade Disc was suitable to be used at different cultivation realms. Furthermore, it contained many profound mysteries of the Seventh Tribulation realm. It was considered to be a relatively top-grade Sixth Tribulation treasure.
To the weak, the Bloodblade Disc was a stronger treasure.
This calabash is comparable to several Bloodblade Discs. Meng Chuan sighed inwardly. These three treasures are considered a part of Senior Pang Ming’s treasure trove. Unfortunately, Senior Pang Ming is skilled in the Mountain River lineage. It’s not compatible with the lightning lineage. I can only sell these treasures in the future and exchange them for something that suits me. However, I’m currently too weak. It’s not wise to take out such treasures in public. I’m afraid it’ll bring me trouble.
Nobody could distinguish the grades of his owned Tribulation treasures whilst fighting. However, when trading? He naturally had to let others take a closer look at the Tribulation treasures and confirm their specific strengths.
With his current strength, it wasn’t suitable for him to take out a Seventh Tribulation treasure for trading
Meng Chuan waved his hand and put away the three precious Tribulation treasures. With a flip of his hand, a fist-sized cubic crystal jade appeared in his palm. Chaotic mist flowed within the crystal jade. This is an Outer Realm Essence Crystal. Meng Chuan sighed in amazement. Just this piece of Outer Realm Essence Crystal is enough to exchange for an Imperial Lord-level treasure. Senior Pang Ming has 3,000-plus Outer Realm Essence Crystals in the Spatial Pagoda. In terms of value, the Outer Ream Essence Crystals have the same value as the three Tribulation treasures.
Outer Realm Essence Crystals were the outer realm’s currency. Tribulation Eminences consumed a terrifying amount of energy when battling. Absorbing the outer world’s powers would be too slow for them. Even Senior Pang Ming-who had reached the Fifth Tribulation realm-found using Outer Ream Essence Stones too slow. Thus, he mainly used Outer Realm Essence Crystals. After reaching the Tribulation Transcendence realm, one needed even more Outer Realm Essence Crystals. Senior Pang Ming had prepared for his cultivation in the Sixth Tribulation realm, so he had kept a sufficient amount of Outer Realm Essence Crystals. However, he failed to survive the sixth Essence Soul Tribulation.
Senior Pang Ming’s treasures make up 30% of his wealth. The Outer Realm Essence Crystals make up another 30% of his wealth. Meng Chuan looked at the massive corpse in the pagoda-it was a 5,000-kilometer-long body. It was an Eight-Headed Star Swallowing Snake’s corpse!
An adult Eight-Headed Star Swallowing Snake’s complete corpse. Meng Chuan looked at it. It’s a powerful Tribulation Eminence. With this corpse, one can absorb its complete bloodline. This absorbed bloodline can be passed on for generations.
The Eight-Headed Star Swallowing Snake was ranked high among the alien beasts. However, Meng Chuan didn’t think much of it. I can sell it in the future. I don’t have the strength to refine this corpse. Furthermore, Archean Eon Realm doesn’t need it. Archean Eon Realm has the phoenix bloodline and the dragon bloodline.
There were countless aberrant existences in the outer realm. Many of them were very mediocre. Some of the life modification processes undergone by Regis Godfiends and fifth Firmament demon monarchs used ordinary materials coming from these special lifeforms.
The Eight-Headed Star Swallowing Snake and the Dark Peacock were considered powerful special lifeforms. However, there were two special lifeforms that were considered the strongest-the dragon and the phoenix! Of course, that was referring to pure-blooded dragons and pure-blooded phoenixes. Ancestral Master Archean Eon had once obtained an adult pure-blooded dragon and an adult pure-blooded phoenix. He refined the two complete bloodlines, allowing humans to have the phoenix bloodline and the dragon bloodline. It was only because humanity didn’t have these two bloodlines for very long. If a Supremacy-level or an Imperial Lord-level Phoenix Divine Body (Dragone Divine Body) expert appeared, one would know how terrifying these two bloodlines were.
I can sell the Eight-Headed Star Swallowing Snake’s corpse after I become an Imperial Lord. It’s not too eye-catching either. Meng Chuan didn’t think too much of it because it wasn’t a very precious item in Senior Pang Ming’s treasure trove.
Senior Pang Ming’s most precious treasure is even more valuable than the Seventh Tribulation treasure…
Meng Chuan looked for the item inside the pagoda. However, his mind went blank when his consciousness went too close to it. He couldn’t sense anything.
I can’t see it at all. It looks like I have to take it out. Meng Chuan was somewhat nervous.
Meng Chuan first cast his Chaos Hole domain and infused his Chaos Hole Quintessential Essence into his domain to protect his surroundings. He also made his Bloodblades surround his body. Following that, Meng Chuan took the item out from the pagoda. Come out. Although he couldn’t see it, he could sense the treasure’s location after he gained control of the pagoda.
It appeared 100 feet in front of Meng Chuan.
The moment it appeared, the void trembled and distorted.
Meng Chuan stared at it. He tried to probe the item with his Essence Soul perception domain and Chaos Hole domain, but they were useless. His perception still remained blank when he tried investigating the item. He could only see its surface with his naked eye. At Meng Chuan’s realm, he could see many layers of ordinary matter with his naked eye. However, he could only see the item’s surface.
A piece of flesh from a Seventh Tribulation Dark Peacock? In terms of value, it’s much more expensive than the calabash. Meng Chuan carefully examined it.
A Dark Peacock was a very powerful special lifeform. However, although a Dark Peacock went through hardships and excavated its potential to reach maturity, it would only reach the perfected Imperial Lord realm. It could fight Third Tribulation Eminences. However, if a Dark Phoenix wanted to become stronger? A Dark Phoenix would have to cultivate like other species and rely on their own cultivation to reach the Tribulation realm. Physical Body Tribulation Eminences had very special bodies. A piece of flesh extracted from a Physical Body Tribulation Eminence would instantly turn to dust and disappear. Their bodies would be restored to their original state. When they were alive, it was impossible to take a single drop of blood or a strand of hair from them.
Only after a Physical Body Tribulation Eminence died could one dissect their corpses.
Such corpses… were the most precious treasures for a Physical Body Tribulation Eminence.
It shouldn’t have died from a failed tribulation. The stronger one is, the more unwilling they are to let their bodies be dissected and violated. According to Archean Mountain’s dossiers, a Tribulation Eminence will usually destroy their bodies—not leaving a single trace behindafter they fail to transcend a tribulation. The true bodies left in their homeworld can be left to their descendants. However, they will also set up things that prevent their descendants from violating their corpses.
Therefore, it’s very likely that he was killed. After all, the corpse has been preserved. Every piece of flesh and drop of blood within a Physical Body Tribulation Eminence’s body contains their cultivation path of the Tribulation realm. A Seventh Tribulation Dark Peacock? Meng Chuan sighed in amazement. The Dark Peacock species had extremely high talent.
However, due to their high talent, it was extremely difficult for them to reach the Tribulation realm. It was extremely difficult for a Dark Phoenix to become a Seventh Tribulation Eminence.
Seventh Tribulation treasures contained a portion of the profundities of a Tribulation Eminence’s cultivation path. The flesh and blood of a Physical Body Seventh Tribulation Eminence? It contained all the accomplishments of that Physical Body Seventh Tribulation Eminence.Cultivation? Although one could deduce a cultivation path, it didn’t mean that they could verbalize it or express it. The profundities that were written within manuals and refined into treasures were all things that could be expressed. Some profundities were extremely difficult to express. However, they were perfectly reflected in a Physical Body Tribulation Eminence’s body.
Pang Ming had paid a huge price to obtain this piece of flesh. He often perceived the profundities contained within this Seventh Tribulation Eminence’s body. Chi! Chi! Chi!
The piece of flesh floated in the air, exerting tremendous pressure on the Chaos Hole domain.
Go. Meng Chuan carefully controlled a Bloodblade. When the Bloodblade was just one foot away from the piece of flesh, an invisible barrier prevented it from approaching any further.
It’s true. I can’t even touch it, much less cut it. Meng Chuan carefully looked at the black jade-like flesh. This piece of flesh was larger than an ordinary person’s head. One side was skin; flesh could be seen on the other side. He could also see dark-purple blood. The other parts couldn’t be seen clearly.
The black jade-like piece of flesh’s skin was similarly crystalline. A faint black membrane covered its surface.
Meng Chuan glanced at the skin membrane. Meng Chuan—who had reached the Chaos Hole realm-magnified it with his naked eye by millions of times. To him, the skin was currently as vast as a tiny star. Meng Chuan could see countless runes flowing on the black membrane. A Physical Body Tribulation Eminence’s corpse was a manifestation of the law profundities they had perceived.
Oh? Meng Chuan looked at the countless runic patterns on the skin. He suddenly discovered something similar to his paramount technique, Infinite Saber. However, it was many times more complicated.
