Lord of All Realms - Chapter 1345: Revisiting the Magical Land[Updated at: 2021-01-14 16:14:27]
In a mysterious heaven and earth.
Nie Tian appeared out of thin air on the altar that was surrounded and faced by eight flame dragon skeletons.
Gazing into the distance at the lofty, mountain-like titan arms that stretched into the sky, Nie Tian took a deep breath and said, “I’m back.”
Earlier, when he had been recovering by refining Blood Essence from Ancientbeast and outsider corpses in the Realm of Fire Spirit, a soul message from Agaz had entered his mind, suggesting that he should come here right away.
Upon entering this magical land, Agaz no longer manifested himself in his armor form, but rather his dragon form.
Exuding raging flames, he floated right above Nie Tian, restless for action.
Nie Tian took a while to examine this place, and discovered that even though many years had passed since his last visit, nothing seemed to have changed.
“Why bring me here now?” he asked.
“I was worried that the Four Manifestations Flame Soul Cauldron could take Pang Chicheng here,” Agaz answered. “Shao Tianyang branded a key to this place in my heart. However, since Pang Bo made and handed the key to Shao Tianyang, he could have left another one in the Four Manifestations Flame Soul Cauldron.
“If Pang Chicheng actually comes here, I’m afraid he’ll turn this whole place upside down.
“Plus, he’s long since learned that I can take people to this magical land. He only wasn’t able to come because his bloodline hadn’t been awakened back then.”
Nie Tian pondered for a moment before asking, “Why was the key branded in your heart?”
“You may have noticed that this altar was forged from the remains of the ancestors of my race,” Agaz explained. “It’s actually a special teleportation portal that only Ancientspirits can use. It contains bloodline secrets. It was because I had a flame dragon bloodline running inside of me that I could be forged into a key to this place.”
“I see.” Nie Tian nodded, showing that he understood.
“But the Four Manifestations Flame Soul Cauldron contains a flame dragon aura as well,” Agaz added. “And there was a teleportation portal in that underground palace. I was afraid that the Four Manifestations Flame Soul Cauldron could take Pang Chicheng here with the help of that teleportation portal and that wisp of flame dragon aura.”
Enlightened, Nie Tian said, “That’s actually a valid concern.”
Then, he glanced around and said with a plain tone, “You don’t seem to know much about the wonders of this place either. All I know is that sixteen titans are buried in four different directions in this place, as if to seal a special location in the middle.”
With these words, he shot into the distant sky.
He sped through the sky like a bolt of lightning.
Nie Tian laughed. “This feels awesome! This is much better than before! When I came here for the first time, I couldn’t even walk due to the unusual gravitational field here. Even later, I could only walk within a small area. The last time I was here, I took a tour around this place. It took me several months.”
Before, he hadn’t been able to fly here due to his low bloodline grade and cultivation base.
This time, he was finally strong enough to fight the gravitational field and soar through the heavens.
It wasn’t long before he came to the huge hole in the earth that seemed to be suppressed by a total of sixteen buried titans in the four cardinal directions.
Nothing seemed to have changed.
The huge hole was like a well that connected this heaven and earth to a dark starry river.
The spiritual Qi of Heaven and Earth was exceptionally rich near the huge hole, where a plant that looked like a grayish-brown tree branch stuck out.
The hole was covered by a misty spiritual power shield, which separated the dark starry river from this heaven and earth. Even standing on it, he couldn’t fall through it.
During his last visit, he had tried every possible method, but still failed to penetrate that spiritual power shield.
The grayish-brown plant seemed as solid as a piece of divine metal. Even fire couldn’t burn it, which made it full of wonders.
“I’ve uncovered most of the secrets here. Only this place...” Frowning, Nie Tian gazed at the grayish-brown plant and the glowing shield that covered the huge hole. “Agaz, this is an Ancientspirit burial ground, and your reforged heart is the key to this heaven and earth. Do you really have no memories of this place?
“Didn’t people say that your bloodlines are branded with even the most ancient memories of your race?”
Agaz had followed him to the huge hole in his flame dragon form.
“No,” Agaz answered. “I have no memories of this place. I even can’t tell whether this is a realm in our world or a human domain.
“The sixteen dead titans seem to be sealing this huge hole in the earth. Or are they sealing something in this huge hole? This plant?” Nie Tian pondered for a while, rubbing his chin. “If I can’t go under, what if I go up? Will it help if I look down from outside of this heaven and earth?”
With this thought, he enveloped himself in his domain and charged into the heavens.
Now that his bloodline had reached the eighth grade and his cultivation base had reached the Void domain, the gravitational field here had much a smaller limitation on his movements.
He soared high into the heavens.
After a while, he looked down from ten thousand meters high, and realized that this realm actually wasn’t very vast.
Other than the fact that the mountain-like arms of sixteen titans stuck out of the earth, there seemed to be nothing special about it.
He continued to rise.
Shortly afterwards, he slammed into a ward that was not only invisible to the eye, but also undetectable by soul awareness.
He bounced right back.
His expression changed. “There’s a ward sealing the heavens too? Is this place a prison? This ward is kind of similar to the Nine Star Heavens and the Four Manifestations Heaven-sealing Formation. The only differences are this ward is made of pure spiritual Qi of Heaven and Earth, and it’s restrictive from the inside as well.”
Pondering, he slowly descended back to the huge hole in the earth.
Once again, he fixed his eyes on the grayish-brown plant and the spiritual power shield that was sealing the huge hole.
He canceled his star domain and flame domain, and attempted to approach that plant standing on the illusory land that was his wood domain.
On the land stood the Godspirit Tree and the Wood Thriving Formation formed by the seventy-two tree branches.
After trying for a long time, Nie Tian shook his head in frustration and withdrew his wood domain. “Nope, this plant that looks like a sharp, solid tree branch doesn’t have a single wisp of wood power left in it.
“If I can pierce through this spiritual power shield and have a peek at the dark starry river underneath it, I might be able to find something.”
The Star Behemoth bone was summoned from within his ring of holding.
This item was by far the most powerful weapon at his disposal.
“Let’s give it a shot.”
Without activating his enlarged form or fusing his raging flesh power into the bone through Life Blend, he simply manipulated the bone in his regular form.
Like a crimson divine spear, it pierced towards the spiritual power shield that covered the huge hole.
“Domain Split!” A Star Behemoth bloodline talent burst forth from within the bone.
Countless rays of blood-colored light blasted out like crimson lightning bolts, fusing into the spiritual power shield.
Surprisingly, numerous mysterious veins emerged on the shield, emanating misty divine light.
With a single look at it, Nie Tian couldn’t help but exclaim, “It’s a combination of spiritual power and flesh auras!”
At this moment, Agaz’s message came through. “That’s a bloodline formation that’s unique to Ancientspirits! Judging by its patterns, it should be a bloodline formation of the titans!”
Nie Tian’s eyes suddenly lit up as he discovered that the bloodline formation that had surfaced was being damaged by the blood-colored strings.
During the Primal Era, Star Behemoths had been predators at the top of the food chain.
They even had bloodline suppression over beings that were as mighty as titans.
Nie Tian was thrilled. “This may actually work!”
The last time he had been here, he hadn’t been able to break the spiritual power shield no matter what he had tried. Part of the reason was because he had been far too weak back then. Another reason was that he hadn’t had a weapon as wondrous as the Star Behemoth bone.
Domain Split and Bloodline Suppression worked together, allowing the countless rays of blood-colored light to sever the glowing mysterious bloodline veins.
The spiritual power shield had been absorbing spiritual power from this heaven and earth to power itself.
However, as more and more of the bloodline veins faded away, it gradually lost the ability to channel spiritual power from its surroundings.
After a while, with a fizz, a round opening appeared in the shield.
