Chapter 503 Entering Black Dragon Planet
The stronger one is, the larger one’s body will appear in the River of Spacetime. Meng Chuan also knew this common knowledge. That was why Ancestral Master Archean Eon could cross a river system in just a few steps. After all, since the Ancestral Master was extremely large, a river system was just a small river to him.
Ancestral Master would be massive in the River of Spacetime. With my current strength, I wouldn’t even be able to see his entire body. I could probably see his foot at most. The Tribulation Eminence I saw just now is probably a Sixth Tribulation Eminence, or maybe he was a Fifth Tribulation Eminence.
Meng Chuan had too little experience when he first came to the outer realm. Although he knew a lot of information, he could only vaguely determine that the Tribulation Eminence he just saw had at least reached the Fifth Tribulation realm!
Anyway, I’m still far from that realm. After recovering from his shock, Meng Chuan continued flying.
The River of Spacetime was vast, but cultivators often roamed it. Even Supremacy Qing Gu knew Heaven Peak River System very well.
Meng Chuan naturally wouldn’t be lost since he had the Spacetime Dominion Map.
Half a year after entering the River of Spacetime.
Meng Chuan—who had been resisting the River of Spacetime’s suppression for a long time-suddenly stopped resisting. Immediately, Meng Chuan was expelled out of the River of Spacetime.
Meng Chuan returned to the outer realm’s ordinary void.
At a glance, he saw many burning Grand Yang Stars in front of him. The 64 Grand Yang Stars were scattered everywhere, protecting the black planet in the middle. The 64 Grand Yang Stars moved very slowly. No matter how they moved, they were like one entity.
I heard that there are still 64 Grand Yin Stars apart from the 64 Grand Yang Stars. However, the Grand Yin Stars are hidden in the dark… I can’t sense them at all. Meng Chuan was astonished by that. He was so astonished that such huge stars—which were part of the array formation-were completely hidden from sight.
Meng Chuan waved his hand and released Supremacy Qing Gu.
“Brother Eastcalm, you are really impressive. You arrived at Black Dragon Planet so quickly.” Supremacy Qing Gu couldn’t help but sigh in amazement when he saw where they were. He truly admired Meng Chuan. Meng Chuan’s traveling speed of the River of Spacetime was comparable to some Imperial Lords.
“Let’s go,” said Meng Chuan.
The two quickly flew towards Black Dragon Planet.
Surrounded by Grand Yang Stars, Black Dragon Planet appeared very small, but in reality, it was a massive planet that was half a million kilometers in diameter.
Meng Chuan and Supremacy Qing Gu transformed into dazzling streams of light. Their true speed was 100,000 kilometers per second. After altering the time flow, they moved no slower than light. They flew for an hour before arriving at Black Dragon Planet.
“Patriarch Black Dragon is Heaven Peak River System’s strongest Tribulation Eminence. He is also the owner of Black Dragon Planet.” Supremacy Qing Gu looked at Black Dragon Planet and sent a voice transmission. “Although it’s very safe on Black Dragon Planet and fighting is forbidden, we can’t show any disrespect to Patriarch Black Dragon. Offending Patriarch Black Dragon means death.”
Meng Chuan nodded. “I understand.” “As long as we don’t offend Patriarch Black Dragon, it’s absolutely safe,” said Supremacy Qing Gu with a smile.
“The safest method is to not mention Patriarch Black Dragon’s name at all after entering Black Dragon Planet,” said Meng Chuan.
Meng Chuan was still very respectful towards a
Tribulation Eminence that could forcefully move Grand Yang Stars and Grand Yin Stars to set up an array formation. Not to mention the fact that this Tribulation Eminence was also the river system’s strongest expert.
“Don’t worry.” Supremacy Qing Gu nodded. “I won’t even mention his name.” Swoosh! Swoosh!
Following that, they swooped down.
As they passed through Black Dragon Planet’s outermost array formation, Meng Chuan and Supremacy Qing Gu felt the void change. They arrived at the entrance of an ancient city. Black Dragon City. Meng Chuan stared at the city in front of him.
On Black Dragon Planet, Black Dragon City was the most important transaction ground for Heaven Peak River System’s cultivators.
As for what was outside the city? There were layers upon layers of array formations outside the city, as well as Patriarch Black Dragon’s cultivation grounds. All were forbidden from trespassing
“That’s…” Meng Chuan looked into the distance.
At the end of the black mountain range in the distance, a gigantic head could be seen. Its nostrils flared as its breath swept across 500 kilometers.
“A dragon?” Meng Chuan recognized the lifeform.
The coiled black dragon laid on the ground, appearing like a black mountain range. The so-called mountain range was just a portion of its revealed back.
“This is Patriarch Black Dragon’s dragon follower?” Meng Chuan was somewhat astonished.
“It’s said to be an adult dragon,” said Supremacy Qing Gu in envy. “A perfected Imperial Lord dragon has strength comparable to a Tribulation Eminence.”
However, Meng Chuan knew more than Qing Gu. He thought to himself, Look at how thick and heavy his body is. Look at the spikes on his back. He is a Magma Black Dragon. He isn’t a pure-blood dragon. A Magma Black Dragons’ strength is slightly inferior to an Eight-Headed Star Swallowing Snake and a Dark Peacock’s. A Magma Black Dragon should be comparable to a Second Tribulation Eminence upon reaching adulthood.
Powerful Tribulation Eminences easily attracted special lifeforms into following them.
Meng Chuan and Supremacy Qing Gu took another glance at the black dragon before walking into the city.
The city gates opened without any obstruction.
The moment they entered, they saw buildings lining both sides of the main street. Some of the buildings were closed, while others were open. The small buildings that were open had puppet servants to receive guests and customers.
“These small buildings can be rented from Black Dragon City for a short period of time,” said Supremacy Qing Gu. “After renting them, you can do business and trade goods… However, those who can rent small buildings are either good at refining artifacts or have special goods. Supremacies typically rent them for short periods of time and personally receive their guests. Those who rent small buildings for extended periods are typically Imperial Lords.”
Meng Chuan took in the sight.
Many buildings—thousands of them-could be seen on the street. There were also all kinds of strange items being sold.
“One has to depend on their acumen if they want to buy goods from these small buildings,” explained Supremacy Qing Gu. “As fighting is forbidden here, one can’t blame others for losing out. However, whenever I come here, I like to shop at these small buildings. Due to the low prices, I might be able to find something suitable for myself.”
Supremacy Qin Gu then pointed at the large buildings in front of them—which clearly occupied a much larger area. They were all huge buildings. “It’s different up ahead. Most of the majestic buildings are backed by Tribulation Eminences. For example, Star Pavilion sells treasures and weapons. They can even custom-make Tribulation treasures. Essence Water Manor mainly sells 39 types of essence water. Black Dragon Palace… I believe you can guess who it belongs to from the name, Brother Eastcalm. A large-scale treasure auction is hosted every year…”
Supremacy Qing Gu happily explained Black Dragon Planet’s many buildings.
Meng Chuan was amazed as he listened. As Heaven Peak River System’s most important trading area, 20-30% of the river system’s cultivators would usually gather here. During special events, many more cultivators would gather here. This planet naturally bustled with life.
“Oh, and the most important thing. Look at that tall building.” Supremacy Qing Gu pointed at a tall building that was faintly discernible through the clouds. “Eternal Tower is said to be the only nine-storied building! It’s 90,000 feet tall! It’s said that there’s nothing you can’t find inside. As long as you can afford it, you can buy anything. Black Dragon Palace is only 10,000 feet tall, but Eternal Tower is 90,000 feet tall.”
Meng Chuan laughed.
As one of the strongest factions in the River of Spacetime, Eternal Tower was definitely confident in its ability to provide anything for sale given the right price.
This Black Dragon Planet is the most suitable place for me now. After obtaining Senior Pang Ming’s treasures, I have to convert the treasures into strength!
“Let’s rent a cave abode,” said Meng Chuan.
“Rent a cave abode?” Supremacy Qing Gu looked at Meng Chuan in surprise. “That’s very expensive.”
As it was absolutely safe in Black Dragon City, the rental prices were very high.
Meng Chuan brought Supremacy Qing Gu to one of Black Dragon City’s top three buildings – Black Dragon Manor.
“Gentlemen, what would you like to buy at Black Dragon Manor?” A female attendant smiled at them. In reality, the female attendant was only a puppet servant. She only had the strength of the weakest Core Cloud Godfiend. However, in Black Dragon City, the puppet servants only had to serve the guests well! After all, cultivators weren’t suitable for serving guests.
“I’m renting a cave abode,” said Meng Chuan. The female attendant nodded slightly and led Meng Chuan to a hall.
Inside the hall, a miniature three-dimensional image of Black Dragon City floated in the air.
“Only Supremacies are allowed to live in Supremacy-level cave abodes,” said an elder with a smile. “One Supremacy-level cave abode can only hold two followers. Followers are not allowed to exceed the Supremacy-level. Living beings within grotto-heavens are also considered followers.”
Meng Chuan nodded slightly.
As Black Dragon Planet was absolutely safe, this was used as a form of protection. There was naturally a huge difference between protecting a Supremacy and protecting an Imperial Lord or even a Tribulation Eminence. The prices for renting different level cave abodes were naturally different.
“Please take a look.” The elder pointed at the projection of Black Dragon City floating in front of him. “There are still over 500 empty Supremacy-level cave abodes. You can choose any one.”
“What’s the rental price?” asked Meng Chuan.
“The cost of renting a Supremacy-level cave abode is half an Outer Realm Essence Crystal for ten years,” said the elder with a smile. “The minimum rental period is ten years.”
Meng Chuan nodded. “I’ll rent it for ten years then.”
