Lord of All Realms - Chapter 1269: Domain-building?[Updated at: 2021-01-14 16:10:33]
The Realm of Maelstrom had its unique features.
The whole realm was surrounded by curious light that looked like a watery curtain, within which were numerous spatial rifts.
The realm’s connection to the starry river was a vortex-shaped opening. Qi warriors in every part of the Realm of Maelstrom could only see a small portion of the starry river when they looked up, as if they were frogs looking up at the sky from the bottom of a well.
But at this moment, the small portion of the starry river people could see was completely taken up by the colorful layers around Nie Tian.
As soon as Nie Tian charged out of the Realm of Maelstrom and into the starry river, many air-transportation spiritual tools, war chariots, and low-grade starships that were berthed nearby exploded.
Agonized shrieks filled the void.
Aside from the Thousandsword Mountain Sect, the Golden Vast Sect, and the Divine Seal Sect, there were also numerous minor sects and clans in the Domain of Heaven Python.
Many of them had heard about the upheaval in the Realm of Maelstrom. However, since they hadn’t had the audacity to enter the Realm of Maelstrom, they had berthed their war chariots and low-grade starships in the vicinity, so they could keep a close watch on the situation in the Realm of Maelstrom.
A great deal of them harbored ill intentions, and wished to see the Thousandsword Mountain Sect, the Divine Seal Sect, and the Golden Vast Sect be wiped out.
They had even been prepared to acknowledge allegiance to the Remote Beginning Heavenly Sect the moment they won this battle.
BANG! BANG! BANG!
The layers of energies You Qimiao had left behind swept over and crushed every war chariot and low-grade starship with an unstoppable momentum!
Jing Feiyang, Qu Mingde, and Quan Zixuan, the three Saint domain experts, gazed up at the starry river through what looked like the mouth of a well. Faces expressionless, they watched the debris of the starships fall like a meteor shower.
“They deserve this!”
“Is Nie Tian doing this to shock and awe the vile forces in the Domain of Heaven Python?”
“Those rotten ones never truly belonged with us. Their deaths shall not be pitied. It’s just, why would Nie Tian want to kill them himself?”
All of the forces that had their hearts in the right place had come to the Realm of Maelstrom through the teleportation portals of the Divine Seal Sect, the Golden Vast Sect, and the Thousandsword Mountain Sect.
The intentions of those that had sailed to this place were self-evident.
WHOOSH! WHOOSH! WHOOSH!
Enveloped in the Primal Chaos, Nie Tian’s eyes were filled with amazement as he watched the outer layers of energies continue to expand.
As soon as he charged into the starry river, he discovered that a large amount of energies of various attributes were attracted by the magnetic field around him, and started to converge on him from different directions. “What’s going on?”
The Primal Chaos which he had activated only took up a small area at the heart.
Inside of it, flame crystal strings could be seen flying about with bits of star power that looked like diamonds, green streams of wood power, and crimson wisps of flesh power. Strands of soul power flashed around like ghosts.
In the outer layers were more than a dozen types of energies. Attracted by the Primal Chaos at the heart, they formed a violently twisting, ripping, and conflicting magnetic field, which was terrifyingly mighty.
The Primal Chaos controlled the outer layers.
Now, as Nie Tian entered the starry river, the complicated energies in the outer layers started to madly attract foreign energies from his surroundings, causing the outer layers to further expand.
The raging energies in the outer layers crushed every air-transportation spiritual tool, war chariot, and starship they touched.
Nie Tian simply watched those vessels burst into flames and plummet towards the earth.
Those with low cultivation bases couldn’t even scream before their souls were shredded, and they died.
Only those at the Void domain were able to escape before their domains were completely twisted.
Moments later, there was no one left in Nie Tian’s surroundings.
One Saint domain cultivator after another flew out of the Realm of Maelstrom. They were followed by Chu Rui and the other experts.
All of them charged into the starry river through the well-like opening, and entered the peculiar magnetic field around Nie Tian.
“This strange twisting and ripping power is even affecting my domain!” Yu Suying exclaimed softly, as she discovered that she started to lose control of her domain and the Heaven-purging Divine Light that had fused into it as she approached Nie Tian.
As Chu Rui flew close, he also noticed that the river of stars that surrounded him began to move in an unusual pattern.
They seemed to have their tracks changed.
Chu Rui’s expression flickered with astonishment. “The stars have deviated from the ultimate law of stars I derived! Such strange twisting power! Even my law of stars is bent! No wonder that mountain peak transformed from Duan Hongwen’s dharma idol failed to even hold on for a brief moment before all of its talismans perished!”
“What are you doing, Nie Tian?”
Standing on the black tortoise and wreathed in a black aura, Dong Li looked like a goddess that had crossed into this mortal world from a dark land. Surprisingly, she also charged into the starry river as the Saint and God domain experts did.
Dong Qisong, who was at the early Saint domain, was the sectmaster of the Beast-controlling Sect. Judging by seniority, he was Dong Li’s patriarch’s patriarch. Seeing her approaching so recklessly, he was so scared that he almost fell towards the earth.
Chu Rui, Yu Suying, Mo Qianfan, Yin Xingtian, Master Blood Spirit, Xie Qian, Jing Feiyang...
Which of these experts weren’t at the Saint domain or higher?
Not a single Void domain cultivator dared to enter the starry river after seeing Nie Tian charge up, causing all of the war chariots and starships that were berthed in the starry river to explode and fall.
Even Dong Qisong himself had been extra cautious when he had flown into the starry river, fearing that something would go wrong.
Dong Li had only entered the early Soul realm recently with the help of the dark stone and the cultivation resources she had gained from the Ancient Fragmentary Star Palace. She didn’t know a thing about inner domains yet. How did she have the audacity to charge into the starry river?
However, she seemed to be unscathed somehow!
“I’m fine,” Dong Li said with a plain tone. With ease, she circulated the power from the dark stone within her as she started to strengthen herself by devouring the faint light in the starry river like a goddess of darkness. “I won’t have a problem practicing cultivation in the starry river, much less simply staying.”
“Another rare talent!” Chu Rui marveled.
“Nie Tian, can’t you scatter the energies you stole from You Qimiao?” Mo Qianfan from the Heavenly Thunder Sect called out, frowning. “You Qimiao and Duan Hongwen have withdrawn from the Realm of Maelstrom already. We’re not facing any enemies. You can relax now.”
As he spoke, the energies gathered around Nie Tian continued to expand.
Before he knew it, the magnetic field around him expanded to cover hundreds of acres, and was still expanding.
Its frenzied power and twisting, ripping aura was also building up rapidly.
Mo Qianfan sensed it quietly, and realized that if it continued to grow larger and stronger, the layers of energies might even rip the Realm of Maelstrom apart.
Not only the Realm of Maelstrom, but many other nearby realms might be destroyed as well.
“If this thing continues to grow, it might actually be able to destroy a small-scale realm!”
“Not only actual realms, but our inner domains may fall victims too. It’s just that our inner domains can move and avoid it. However, I’m afraid those realms, which haven’t moved since the birth of this starry river, will be destroyed when touched by these destructive energies.”
The discussion went on among the people gathered outside.
Chu Rui, Yu Suying, and Mo Qianfan, the three God domain experts, also sensed the magnetic field. Even they felt a strong sense of danger from the raging, twisting, ripping power in its outer areas.
“Don’t mind me, ladies and gentlemen.”
As Nie Tian said these words, he controlled the magnetic field to fly towards an emptier part of the Domain of Heaven Python, where there were no realms.
As he did that, the orbiting energies moved with him.
“What on earth is going on?" Standing on the black tortoise, Dong Li instructed it to accelerate, lest she lose Nie Tian.
“Leave me be, I...” Nie Tian smiled bitterly. “For some reason, I have a feeling that I might be ready to forge my inner domain. Perhaps the formation of my domain has a close connection to this magnetic field and the raging, twisting, and ripping power within it. This might be how I’m supposed to forge my inner domain.”
Yin Xingtian gasped with astonishment. “What?! Domain forging?! Advancing to the Void domain?!”
“I forgot!” Chu Rui slapped himself on the forehead and called out, “Nie Tian! Since you practice three different types of incantations, the domain-forging techniques recorded in that fragmentary star mark on your chest don’t apply to you! You’ll have to come up with your own method. You’re unique. No one can give you instructions on how to forge your inner domain!”
Yu Suying agreed by saying, “He carries the wood, star, and flame attributes, and he’s a hybrid. Indeed, no one’s domain-forging experience can be used as a reference.”
Yin Xingtian took a deep breath and said, “Even though he hasn’t forged his domain yet, the raging, twisting, and ripping power in his magnetic field is already so terrifyingly mighty. After his domain comes to form, will it also carry power with those peculiar features? If that’s the case, I suppose even Saint domain cultivators’ domains would be torn to shreds upon contact with his, not to mention Void domain cultivators’ domains.”
Dong Li turned to Dong Qisong and asked, “Won’t Nie Tian need spiritual materials to forge his domain? Domain-forging requires certain precious materials, right?”
Dong Qisong smiled bitterly. “That’s right with ordinary people, but Nie Tian is different. As you know, he already has unique treasures built into his flame power, wood power, and star power cores.”
“The Godspirit Tree, the flame spark, and the Nine Stars Flower...” Dong Li muttered.
“With those unique treasures in his spiritual sea, he doesn’t need to look for other so-called precious materials anymore,” Dong Qisong explained. “He already has the most ideal spiritual material for every attribute. Why look for others?”
Dong Li was suddenly enlightened. “So does that mean Nie Tian met the requirements for domain-forging long ago?”
“Exactly,” Chu Rui answered for Dong Qisong. “Don’t get too close to Nie Tian. Observe him from a safe distance if you like. I’ve got to return to our headquarters first.”
