Chapter 1543 – Not Enough Levels
Zhao Hai looked at the Undead standing before him. This Undead was naturally Guo Ling. As soon as he ingested the wine, Zhao Hai immediately discovered that there was poison in it. However, he didn’t act on it. He had the Space detoxify it first. To be honest, the poison wasn’t that strong and wasn’t life-threatening. It just made people unable to use their spiritual force. It was nothing remarkable.
After discovering this, Zhao Hai wanted to see what Guo Ling would do next. This Guo Ling was quite interesting. He was aggressive in the beginning and even wanted to kill him. But when he saw that he couldn’t do anything to Zhao Hai, he immediately pretended to be kind. This caused him to act and poison the alcohol.
Then, upon hearing Guo Ling later on, Zhao Hai confirmed that the Cloud Sea Realm wasn’t a good place. It might be more chaotic than the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield.
Looking at the Undead in front of him, Zhao Hai asked, “Guo Ling, are the people of the Cloudsea Territory ascenders from the lower realms?”
Guo Ling shook his head and said, “Replying to the Young Master. We’re not. The people from the Cloudsea Territory are natives born here. According to legend, the Cloudsea Territory had nobody in the beginning. Afterwards, the spiritual qi of the clouds gave birth to many things. And in the end, we were created.”
Zhao Hai nodded. The situation of the Cloudsea Territory was quite special. It’s impossible for them to be ascenders nor people from outside.
However, Zhao Hai didn’t expect there to be natives of the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. How many years did it take before humans appeared on Earth? The Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield was a subspace made by other people. Not only did it give birth to people, it gave birth to people who can cultivate. In this case, how old was the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield?
Thinking of this, Zhao Hai’s scalp couldn’t help but tingle. He looked at Guo Ling and said, “When did cultivation begin to exist here?”
Guo Ling shook his head and said, “I don’t know, nobody tried to find out.”
Zhao Hai replied, “What cultivation method does the Cloudsea Territory use? How are you related to Cloud Beasts? What are Cloud Fruits?”
Guo Ling answered, “The cultivation methods of the Cloudsea Territory are about the same as those in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. As for the Cloud Beasts, they exist here in the territory. Capturing these beasts can help with our cultivation. Generally, these beasts stay inside the clouds. But these beasts would often be attracted to Whitecloud Islands.”
Zhao Hai stared, “What do Cloud Beasts look like?” Zhao Hai asked this because he felt that the black dragon that he caught was probably one of these cloud beasts.
Guo Ling turned his hand and took out a white token. He handed it over to Zhao Hai and said, “Young Master, this is the Cloud Token. The Cloudsea Territory uses it to record everything. Inside the token are all the Cloud Beasts currently discovered. Please have a look.”
Zhao Hai nodde and received the token before searching it with his spiritual force. The information stored inside immediately entered his brain. This was a very detailed record of every Cloud Beast along with their strength. There’s also their benefit to people as well as methods to subdue them.
Zhao Hai looked through the list one by one. These Cloud Beasts come in all shapes and forms. Some were small like bugs while some were as huge as dragons. They all live in what they call the Endless Black Clouds. Once these Cloud Beasts were captured, the energy they absorbed from the black clouds could be transformed into spiritual qi. It was precisely because of this that Cloud Beasts were quite famous in the Cloudsea Territory.
Zhao Hai also found information about the black dragon he captured. The black dragon was called Thunder Dragon. It was a powerful and dangerous Cloud Beast. Average Immortal Experts wouldn’t dare catch it.
Zhao Hai stored the Cloud Token before looking at Guo Ling and said, “Guo Ling, tell me about Whitecloud Islands.”
Guo Ling replied, “Whitecloud Islands are footholds in the Cloudsea Territory. People from the Cloudsea Territory cannot just explore it freely. We need to use Cloudships in order to traverse it. And even with a Cloudship, we cannot go too far. But in Whitecloud Islands, we can go wherever we want. We don’t know how large the Cloudsea Territory is or how many Whitecloud Islands there are. These Whitecloud Islands vary in sizes and they usually grow plants. Some of these plants are Cloudfruit Trees. These fruits can be eaten and turned into wine. In some bigger Whitecloud Islands, they also grow other things such as cloud rice or cloud vegetables. There are also cloud crystals. These crystals can be used to refine medicine or be ingested directly. Because of this every Whitecloud Island discovered are occupied by people as a place to cultivate. A group’s strength depends on how many Whitecloud Islands they hold.”
Zhao Hai understood that although Guo Ling and the others were residents of the Cloudsea Territory, they should have all been born in these Whitecloud Islands. The territory was filled with dark clouds, making it impossible for the people of the territory to freely explore it. These Whitecloud Islands were akin to sanctuaries that allowed people to thrive in.
Zhao Hai nodded and said, “What about these transforming clouds?”
Guo Ling replied, “Transforming Clouds are ordinary white clouds that the people of the territory refine. These clouds can be shaped into any form. Although they look like clouds on the outside, they are all perfectly usable. They are the main tools of the people in the Cloudsea Territory.”
Zhao Hai frowned and said, “If everyone in the Cloudsea Territory used the white clouds, then wouldn’t they run out?”
Guo Ling answered, “Young Master, the white clouds are growing all the time. The speed at which we use them is far less than its generation. There aren’t any problems with us using them.”
Zhao Hai stared, he didn’t expect it to be like this. He looked at Guo Ling and said, “Wo what about the weapon that you use? What are they made of?”
Guo Ling replied, “All weapons that we use are refined from the bones of Cloud Beasts. After refining them, the beast bones become very hard. They also carry very powerful might.”
Zhao Hai gave a nod, “So it’s like that. Write how to use the cloud beasts as well as the process to make transforming clouds. Also, write everything you know about the Cloudsea Territory.” Guo Ling nodded before he was sent to the Space.
Actually, there’s no need for Guo Ling to write anything down. After leveling up, the Space’s abilities had been further improved. Undead like Guo Ling can directly input their memories into the Space’s database. This was a lot more convenient than writing down.
Zhao Hai stood in Guo Ling’s orchard and looked at the Cloudfruit Trees. He waved his hand and sent a whole tree as well as a clump of white cloud to the Space.
After the white clouds and the tree was sent to the Space, a prompt was heard, “Special white clouds detected. It can grow on its own and contains a large quantity of spiritual qi as well as life force. As it grows, it can also produce spiritual force.”
“Special white cloud fruit bearing tree detected. Its fruits can be used to brew alcohol. It has a high amount of spiritual qi.”
Zhao Hai didn’t expect the white clouds to have additional use. It seems like he found a treasure this time.
At this time, another prompt was heard, “Animal living in white clouds discovered. The animal can transform into mist and return to its original form. Extracting abilities, abilities extracted. Adding abilities to the animals to the Space. The ability has also been integrated into the Host’s body.”
Zhao Hai stared. He didn’t really think that there would be such a thing. Could his body really transform into a cloud and reorganize?
With a thought, Zhao Hai’s body vanished into mist and reformed itself. Zhao Hai was stunned. He immediately tried it again and found out that his body had become a white cloud. Then he used his spiritual force to move his body towards another place.
Zhao Hai smiled. This ability was good, but it wasn’t very useful for him. He returned to the Space and found Laura and the others looking at a cloud in the middle of the room. Zhao Hai can see that it was a transforming cloud.
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “What’s the matter? You all like this thing?”
Laura turned her head to Zhao Hai and said, “Brother Hai, let’s make more of this cloud, alright?”
Zhao Hai replied, “You can talk to Cai’er about that. There’s a lot of white clouds outside, you can make as much as you want.” Zhao Hai was naturally referring to Guo Ling’s Whitecloud Island. Since Guo Ling has no need for it, then naturally Zhao Hai wouldn’t be polite.
Laura and the others turned to Cai’er. Seeing the gazes on her, Cai’er smiled and said, “Alright, this Whitecloud Island isn’t that big, we can just use it. Originally, I wanted to make the island into a foothold into the Cloudsea Territory. We can establish a transmission formation here so that we can return from the Hundred Treasures Realm.”
Laura stared, then she said, “This will be an issue. With Brother Hai’s strength, he wouldn’t be able to digest all of the Cloudsea Territory. We might as well tell the Hundred Treasures Realm.”
Zhao Hai smiled bitterly and said, “Of course I can’t digest the entire territory. Even the Hundred Treasures Realm can’t do it. Once our people come, they can only move into this island. If they leave this island, they would be finished. The cultivators in the Cloudsea Territory will also come to this island soon. Alright, let’s stop talking about this. Let’s see first how many islands there are in this territory and then send our report. Let the people back in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield deal with it. In any case, we can also create a Whitecloud planet inside the Space.”
Hearing Zhao Hai, Laura and the others smiled. There really isn’t anything in the Cloudsea Territory. Apart from Whitecloud Islands, there’s nothing else to take note of. Whitecloud Islands were the flesh and blood of the Cloudsea Territory.
While looking at the monitor, Lizzy turned to Zhao Hai and said, “Big Brother Hai, will you inform Xiang Bo and the others about this? I’m afraid this isn’t something we can keep as a secret.”
Zhao Hai knit his brows and said, “This matter needs to be thought out. We can tell them, but after we report to the Hundred Treasures Realm. Let’s ask them for advice first.”
Lizzy and the others nodded. At this time, Cai’er turned to Zhao Hai and said, “Young Master, we should take some of these white clouds to the Universal Scanner to be decomposed and integrated into Liquid Silver.”
Zhao Hai’s eyes lit up as he said, “Good idea. Let’s do that.” Cai’er smiled faintly and immediately sent a clump of white clouds to the Universal Scanner. But this time, they were left disappointed. They were given a prompt that the level of the scanner wasn’t enough. It couldn’t decompose the white clouds!
This caused Zhao Hai to be startled. It has been a long time since the Space returned this prompt.
Cai’er pursed her lips as she said, “I didn’t expect it to be this advanced. We can’t analyze it yet.”
This caused Zhao Hai’s eyes to light up as he said, “This just means that it’s a high-grade material. The Space already received a lot of things from the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. If the Universal Scanner can’t analyze the white clouds, then this means that it’s anything but ordinary. I’m sure it has a lot of uses.”
Laura’s eyes also shone as she said, “Right. For the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield to birth living beings is already strange. Brother Hai, do you think this involves the white clouds? If this is the case, then the white clouds have more uses than we think. Most importantly, it might mean that the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield is created much sooner than we thought.”
Zhao Hai nodded and said, “That’s possible. It seems like we need to take these white clouds seriously. But this is also good. At least we managed to get our hands on something extraordinary.”
At this time, Megan shook her head and said, “Big Brother Hai, if the white clouds are really extraordinary, then the Space should have leveled up. Why didn’t it create any prompts?”
It was Cai’er who answered, “This isn’t strange. Right now, the Space only knows about the basic use of the white clouds. However, it cannot analyze what it’s made of and its properties. Because of this, it cannot be judged by the Space. The Space doesn’t know if it can level up from the white clouds.”
Zhao Hai said, “Then the white cloud must be the most valuable material we’ve sent to the Space. Is it higher than the spirit root?”
Cai’er shook her head and said, “This and that are different. The spirit root is something produced by the World of Cultivation. Meanwhile, the white clouds might be linked to the creator of the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. It might be the creator’s artifact, an influence higher than the Hundred Treasures Realm. Because its level is too high, the Space cannot judge it. We still aren’t sure if it’s as valuable as the spirit root.”
Zhao Hai nodded, “Alright, no matter what, we’ll know when the Space levels up. Cai’er, begin refining the white clouds of this Whitecloud Island. Then let’s go find another island.”
