Lord of All Realms - Chapter 1292: A Self-sustaining Domain[Updated at: 2021-01-14 16:11:42]
SHEW! SHEW! SHEW!
People that were originally paying close attention to Zu Guangyao suddenly flew over to Nie Tian one after another, along with numerous ancient starships.
Among them were Ji Yuanquan, Hou Chulan, Huang Jinnan, Ye Wenhan, and He Lianxiong.
However, the majority of them were Void and Saint domain experts from across the human domains.
All of them had noticed the disappearance of the terrifying magnetic field surrounding Nie Tian.
Standing on an ancient starship, Ye Wenhan from the Heaven Span Pavilion gazed off at Nie Tian and asked with a frown, “Why did that chaotic magnetic field filled with raging, twisting, and ripping power vanish all of a sudden? According to reliable information, Nie Tian relied on that violent magnetic field to inflict heavy injuries on Duan Hongwen in the Domain of Heaven Python, and smash through the Domain of Spirit Sea and the Domain of Dark Marsh.”
He Lianxiong chimed in. “It was also the reason why the Realm of Jade Billows was destroyed, and Song Chequan had to retreat in defeat.”
“Nie Tian’s three domains vanished simultaneously...” Ye Wenhan pondered for a brief moment before his expression flickered, and he asked, “That means he’s successfully broken through into the Void domain, right?”
A hint of disdain could be seen in He Lianxiong’s tilted eyebrows as he said, “That’s no big deal. It’s only the Void domain after all. I’ll only be impressed if he breaks through into the Saint domain.”
“Nie Tian!” Hou Chulan and Huang Jinnan rushed over to him, elation filling their faces.
A streak of light flashed past them and arrived in front of Nie Tian before everyone else.
Ji Yuanquan seemed extremely curious as he asked, “Has your cultivation base fully stabilized? And your domain too? How do you feel, having just entered the Void domain? I’m not seeing your domain, but you don’t seem to have a problem being in the starry river without its protection.”
Human Qi warriors greatly relied on their domains to travel through the starry river.
Only after they had forged their domains would they be able to stop the hazardous energies in the starry river from infiltrating their bodies.
Most of the energies in the starry river were corrosive and destructive, and were usually mixed with Phantasm Qi, Demon Qi and a wide array of toxins.
Without the protection of their domains, those energies would easily invade Qi warriors’ bodies and kill them.
Even many outsiders with tough bodies had to rely on their flesh aura seas to fend off those corrosive energies.
Only a few of them could expose themselves in the starry river and be free of negative influences.
Nie Tian happened to be one of them.
His domain wasn’t active at this moment, yet he was able to remain in the starry river, looking unharmed and composed. This came as a great surprise to Ji Yuanquan.
Nie Tian grinned and summoned power to activate his domain with the unique method he had derived.
Firstly, glorious starlight formed the outermost parts of a huge sphere. Then, crimson flames formed in the middle like morning glow.
Eventually, a land full of life force appeared at the core, with the Godspirit Tree and emerald tree branches on it. In his domain, those tree branches seemed to be magnified like everything else, and looked like towering ancient trees.
As soon as his domain formed, Nie Tian sensed with great clarity that faint star, wood, and flame power in the starry river started to gather towards his domain, as if they were attracted by it.
The curtain of stars on the outside, the flaming barrier in the middle, and the vegetated land at the core all started to absorb power to make up for their consumption.
Yu Suying from the Profound Purity Palace was the first to notice the anomaly. She sensed in silence for a few seconds before suddenly asking, “Nie Tian, is your newly-formed domain channeling star, wood, and flame power from the starry river on its own?”
Puzzled, Nie Tian asked, “Yeah, don’t yours?”
As soon as he said these words, he noticed that every Void, Saint, and even God domain expert present shook their heads with bitter smiles.
“No?” Nie Tian found this surprising.
Ji Yuanquan sighed softly and explained, “Nie Tian, our domains can only ward off the impurities in the starry river, preventing them from infiltrating and poisoning our bodies and souls. It’s extremely hard to extract the power we need from the mixed energies in the starry river and fuse it into our domains.
“Only if we apply certain secret spells and unique precious materials to our domains do we have a slim chance to achieve that.
“Normally, to restore power to our domains, we either use spiritual materials of various attributes, or go to realms where we can channel and gather spiritual power.”
Yu Suying, Mo Qianfan, and Yin Xingtian also chimed in to supplement Ji Yuanquan’s explanation.
Soon, Nie Tian learned that to restore lightning power to their domains, experts like Mo Qianfan had to consume spiritual materials that contained lightning power, or find realms that were rich in thunder pools and raging lightning, where they could channel lightning power.
Even for experts like Mo Qianfan, it was almost impossible to extract lightning power from the numerous different types of power in the starry river.
If powerful experts wanted to travel through the starry river without starships, they would have to prepare a large number of spiritual materials before their journey and stop in realms to restock their supplies midway.
That was because as long as their domains were active to shield off the impurities in the starry river, there would be consumption.
While God domain experts’ domains might be able to sustain prolonged journeys, and Saint domain experts’ domains as well, Void domain cultivators could easily drain the power in their domains after traveling in the starry river for a short period of time.
The power within cultivators’ domains could be viewed as the spiritual cores in their spiritual seas. Once they were drained of their power, they would scatter and vanish.
Nie Tian, however, could extract star, wood, and flame power from the starry river and fuse them into his domain, which meant he could travel long distances in the starry river without relying on any spiritual materials.
This was unfathomable for most Void, Saint, and even God domain experts.
After hearing their explanation, Nie Tian closed his eyes to examine himself. Moments later, he said, “I guess it’s my Heaven Nourished grade treasures that are making this happen. I fused three unique Heaven Nourished grade treasures into my domain. Their existence allows me to channel star, wood, and flame power from the starry river into my domain.”
Even Ji Yuanquan looked rather envious. “Heaven Nourished treasures?!”
As Nie Tian lifted his hand and made grabbing motions, the Star Behemoth bone, the Flame Dragon Armor, and the Spirit Pearl flew into his hand and disappeared into his ring of holding one by one.
As the Star Behemoth bone and the Flame Dragon Armor flew into his hand, he could tell that they were much heavier than before.
He felt an especially strong sense of change with the Star Behemoth bone. The crimson Bloodline Crystal Chains within it seemed to be constantly changing while emanating misty light.
The Spirit Pearl, however, felt lighter than before. He almost didn’t feel any weight as it touched his hand.
Lou Hongyan curled her lips in a bitter way. “The Flame Dragon Armor…”
This treasure had originally been forged and given to her by her master, Shao Tianyang. Later, it had been seized by Pang Chicheng, and ended up in Nie Tian’s possession after several changes of hands.
Watching this treasure grow stronger and stronger gave her mixed feelings.
“My domain has been forged. The treasures have also experienced changes. I need time to get familiar with them. Besides, I haven’t had a chance to condense all the Blood Essence I can after my bloodline entered the eighth grade. The amount of flesh power I need for my next bloodline upgrade will be astronomical. Time... All of these need time to finish...”
As the Flame Dragon Armor, the bone, and the Spirit Pearl vanished from his palm, he thought to himself,
He had yet to learn to fight with his domain and familiarize himself with the changes to the Flame Dragon Armor, the bone, and the Spirit Pearl. Plus, he needed time to accumulate flesh power.
However, the sect was in peril. There didn’t seem to be time for him to do any of those things.
“Nie Tian, the Realm of Fragmentary Star is in a critical situation,” Ji Yuanquan said. “What’s your plan?”
“The Realm of Fragmentary Star!” Nie Tian was instantly awoken from his thought. “Senior Ji, could you send me to the Realm of Fragmentary Star?”
“Umm... all of the teleportation portals in the Realm of Fragmentary Star that connect to ours seem to have been shut down,” Ji Yuanquan said, looking embarrassed. “If you want to go to the Realm of Fragmentary Star, I’m afraid you’ll have to use the teleportation portals in your realms.”
“If that’s the case, would you take me to my realms?” Nie Tian asked.
Ji Yuanquan nodded. “Sure. However, are you sure you want to go? All of the powerful experts from the Remote Beginning Heavenly Sect and the Shadow Society are now gathered outside the Realm of Fragmentary Star. But that peculiar magnetic field of yours that deterred even God domain experts has vanished.”
“Whatever. I’ve got to go to the Realm of Fragmentary Star.” Nie Tian said.
“Alright.” Ji Yuanquan understood. Then, he turned to Yu Suying, Mo Qianfan, Yin Xingtian, and the others, and asked, “What about you? Are you going to join Nie Tian in the upcoming war against the Shadow Society and the Remote Beginning Heavenly Sect, or do you have other plans?”
“Whatever Nie Tian decides to do.” Mo Qianfan was the first to answer.
Yin Xingtian nodded slightly.
Yu Suying hesitated for a brief moment before letting out a deep sigh and saying, “Given all that has happened, it doesn’t seem we have a choice anymore. We’ve already offended all three of the Jade Heaven Sect, the Shadow Society, and the Remote Beginning Heavenly Sect. We can only stick with this path now, whether it’s the right one or not.”
“Now that you’ve made up your minds,” Ji Yuanquan said, “I’ll help you get out of the Domain of Jade Heaven and to the Realm of Fragmentary Star as quickly as possible. I hope victory will be yours.”
