Paragon of Sin

Chapter 271: Grand Spirit Trials

interest had been snatched away. He realized that they were currently standing on a platform that lifted them to the edges of the sky layer. It was about the equivalent of the eighth-level of the Extreme Mountain ’s height. This platform had a glossy and translucent look.

It was similar to the platform from six months ago where they met the Alchemist Association and the Elemental Heaven Pavilion, but it was higher and far, far wider. With a quick sweep of his spiritual sense to their edges, he found that it encased the entire planet. Furthermore, it was constantly moving at the fringes of the sky layer.

This was an advanced version, and it seemed it contained far more features than just this. He could sense spiritual fluctuations at the bottom of the platform, and it seemed these spiritual fluctuations carried the signature energies of transmission. ’Encasing the entire planet? Was the Myriad Monarch Sect broadcasting the entire event to the starfield? ’

He hadn ’t delved into too much detail regarding this event, but he knew that there would be locations across the starfield that would receive live footage of the trials. Tracing the transmissions, he found that they led to the ninth layer and into unique pagodas. These pagodas were things he was familiar with. They were called Spirit Pagodas and they amplified and directed spells with the coordinated efforts of various experts.

There were eighteen pagodas at central locations spread throughout the planet. Each pagoda had at least a hundred Astral Core Realm experts acting as directors. They were likely in charge of certain areas, focusing on certain events and ignoring others so as to transmit the most exciting portions to the audience. If the entire event was broadcasted in its entirety, due to the sheer venue used, the long and lengthy period of the trials, it would be filled with countless inactive spots and dead air.

He had to applaud the effort.

Ji Changkong took the initiative with a sharp momentum, ”All participants of the event, you have one hour to prepare. Then, the first trial, the Trial of Beasts, will begin! ” He was succinct. The tokens for those to participate had long since been distributed and bought for, and the deadline for arrival will end in one hour exactly.

The numerous figures that looked towards them were the participants, their renowned seniors, and leaders of various forces. They were all treated equally, being housed in the same location. Most hosts would prepare special towers or locations for unique guests, but the Myriad Monarch Sect had done away with all that etiquette.

But that didn ’t mean they disallowed these experts from preparing their own abodes to watch the year-long event in comfort. For example, the Demonic Abyss Mountain ’s members and elders were surrounded by a thousand meter-sized violet sphere that was filled with demonic energies. Regardless if it was their youths or elders, they were concealed within.

The Elemental Heaven Pavilion had their own tower. It was no less in height than the Demonic Abyss Mountain ’s sphere and was shrouded by elemental mist. The Sacred Light Palace had a Sky Palace, clearly mobile. It emitted faint light energies that were slightly blinding and gave off a holy, noble, and grand aura.

As for the Myriad Monarch Sect, they had prepared their own abode in the shape of a pagoda. It looked similar to the Myriad Creation Dao Palace, but it was completely black and contained an imposing air that left one ’s heart feeling unfathomable pressure.

None of these hegemons could be underestimated. Each of their foundations had been built on the legacy of Mystic Ascendant Realm cultivators. The treasures they had were numerous and diverse. The other experts paled in comparison. Some of them had to utilize their ability of Creation to produce their own residents, forcefully sustaining it with astral force of themselves or their companions.

It was quite a difference.

Ji Changkong merely made this announcement, and the Grand Imperial Sages took action. They, and the young elites, had flashed into the pagoda. The youths who were feeling incredible pressure from the gazes of others were relieved, the sweat on their backs and foreheads clear.

This was just the beginning of the competition, but they could already feel the anticipation and tense atmosphere. It wasn ’t that their mentality was fragile and weak, but the scope of their competition had never reached this level.

Qin Rui swiveled on her heel to face the young elites. Despite her face being concealed, one could see the serious air she emitted. ”You all know the rules of the trials, but I ’ll go over it once more. I ’ll answer any question you have now, so be sure to ask if you have them. Otherwise…it ’ll be too late. ”

Wei Wuyin realized it wasn ’t just the others taking this seriously, but even the Grand Imperial Sages were tense. This was a matter regarding their faces and reputation. This was their trial, with the home-field advantage, and the thought of losing was like a guillotine bearing down on their necks.
