Chapter 1752 – Myriad Demons Sect
The Myriad Demons Sect was the top sect of the Northern Divergent Province. No sect in the province dared to offend them. From its name, the sect has a lot of demon cultivators as its disciples.
Demon cultivators were beasts and plants that gained wisdom and followed the path of cultivation. Bit by bit, they became stronger through cultivation before they gained a body. Their strongest point was their physique.
Compared to humans, the bodies of demon cultivators were much stronger. There were demon cultivator bodies that were stronger than human body cultivators.
Besides their strong bodies, demon cultivators also have innate abilities. Their abilities varied greatly from strange to unusual. However, these abilities would always be suitable to the demon cultivator. Because of this, once demon cultivators grow, their combat strength couldn’t be underestimated.
There were very few demon cultivators in the other provinces. This was because people from the other provinces discriminated against demon cultivators. However, the situation was the opposite in the Northern Divergent Province. The Northern Divergent Province was completely suitable for demon cultivators to live in. There were plenty of sects in the province that were made of demon cultivators. Because of this, nobody looked down on demon cultivators in the Northern Divergent Province. Instead, it was the demon cultivators who discriminated against those who weren’t.
The Myriad Demon Sect was the strongest among these sects. It was said that the demon cultivators in the sect numbered more than half of its total population. One could see what kind of sect it was.
The Myriad Demons Sect’s headquarters was located in the Green Plains Mountains. The sect occupied a large chunk of this mountain range that spanned the entire Northern Divergent Province.
On the section of the Green Plains Mountains that the Myriad Demons Sect occupy, there were an uncountable number of mountains. Moreover, the spiritual qi in this section was very thick. There were 72 peaks that the sect valued the most.
For the Black Tiger Gang, it was already good to have ten core disciples that could open their own mountain base. However, in the Myriad Demons Sect, Core Disciples that can open mountain bases numbered 36. At the same time, their population of core disciples was several times more than other sects.
Among those core disciples that could open a mountain base, 16 were demon cultivators while 20 were human.
The nine super sects were the absolute overlords in the province they were located in. Naturally, this meant that the Myriad Demons Sect was the hegemon of the Northern Divergent Province. If they said something, the other sects wouldn’t dare not listen.
Take this time for example, the Myriad Demons Sect asked the Black Tiger Gang to send Zhao Hai for the Heavenly Demon Trial. Even if the Black Tiger Gang was unhappy about it, they would still send Zhao Hai. They didn’t dare offend the Myriad Demons Sect. They knew that offending the Myriad Demons Sect wasn’t a good idea.
The 9 Provinces would send a total of 900 young talents to the Heavenly Demon Trial. These talents were at least at the Nascent Soul Stage. The strongest among them would be the transcending tribulation experts. These talents were the most favored in their respective sects.
Nine hundred people might not be a lot considering that this was from the 9 Provinces. But these 900 talents became the tools of the super sects to suppress the other sects.
The nine super sects would also send their own talents to the trial along with the talents from the other sects. However, they could afford this sacrifice while the other sects couldn’t. Moreover, the talents that the super sects would select from the other sects would be the most talented among these sects. These sects favored these disciples. If they didn’t return, then the impact to their respective sects would be very big.
The Heavenly Demon Trial was the most deadly trial in the Great Realm of Cultivation. No sect was willing to send their talents to participate in it.
However, not participating wasn’t a good idea. If they didn’t participate, then these sects would be offending the 9 super sects. The consequences might be dire. Therefore, the other sects could only clench their teeth and send their young talents to the Heavenly Demon Trial.
This time, Zhao Hai was selected by the Myriad Demons Sect to participate in the trial. To be honest, although the Black Tiger Gang’s elimination of the Roaring Flame Sect was spread throughout the Northern Divergent Province, the Myriad Demons Sect didn’t care much about it. The Black Tiger Gang was barely at the top 100 of the Northern Divergent Province’s sects. As for the Roaring Flame Sect, they couldn’t make it to the top 100. What’s there to pay attention to?
The Myriad Demons Sect selected Zhao Hai to participate in the Heavenly Demon Trial in order to tell the Black Tiger Gang who was the boss of the Northern Divergent Province.
Zhao Hai was faintly aware of these kinds of matters. And after hearing from Tie Zhantian, Zhao Hai became more wary about this trial.
Zhao Hai’s fame has spread in the Northern Divergent Province. The province was now aware that he had great talent when it came to controlling large artifacts.
A group of people were currently standing on the Myriad Demons Sect’s transmission formation plaza. The people in the group had varying types of robes. Naturally, they weren’t all from the Myriad Demons Sect. Among these people was a young cultivator with an arrogant face. He was wearing a dark blue cultivator’s robe. Behind him were two elder-level characters. He stood in place looking at the other cultivators with a disdainful expression.
The young cultivator wearing dark blue robes was the talent that the Myriad Demons Sect would send to the Heavenly Demon Trial. He was a famed young master in the sect and was at the transcending tribulation stage. His cultivation base was the reason for his arrogance.
At this time, a nearby transmission formation flashed a white light before a black-robed cultivator with an average face appeared. The cultivator looked around him and walked towards the gathering. When others saw this cultivator who had a faint smile on his average face, they immediately lost interest.
The black-robed cultivator cupped his fist towards an elder and asked, “Pardon me, is this the gathering point for the Heavenly Demon Trial?”
The Myriad Demons Sect Elder nodded and said, “That’s right. Are you participating?”
The black-clothed cultivator smiled faintly and said, “This one is Zhao Hai from the Black Tiger Gang.” Naturally, the black-clothed cultivator was Zhao Hai. At this moment, he didn’t know much about the situation of the Myriad Demons Sect. The defenses of the sect were very strong. Although liquid silver could become even smaller, he still wouldn’t dare scout the Myriad Demons Sect. He only paid attention to the surroundings of the sect. As for the other parts of the sect, he didn’t know much about them.
Zhao Hai didn’t dare act suspiciously while in the Myriad Demons Sect. This was because the sect was known to be the top sect of the Northern Divergent Province. The Myriad Demons Sect would have many elders as strong as Hu Shan. Because of this, Zhao Hai somewhat dreaded the Myriad Demons Sect.
As they say, a huge shadow comes from a huge tree. There was a reason for the Myriad Demons Sect’s reputation. If Zhao Hai dared to mess around, then he would be courting death. Because of this, Zhao Hai was severely lacking when it came to information regarding the Myriad Demons Sect. He couldn’t even name the elder he talked to.
However, the elder didn’t care about this. He handed Zhao Hai a jade token as he said, “This will be your identity token for the Heavenly Demon Trial. You need to bring it all the time. It will record your progress inside the trial. If you leave the trial, it would be recorded as well. Every Heavenly Demon you kill will also be noted. After the trial, people with the most points will receive a reward.”
Zhao Hai nodded and said, “I got it.”
The elder added, “Going to the Heavenly Demon Trial is an individual task. However, forming teams is allowed. Naturally, you can also act alone.”
After saying that, the elder no longer said anything. Zhao Hai also paid attention to the arrogant-looking cultivator nearby. Looking at his robe, Zhao Hai knew that he must be the talent of the Myriad Demons Sect.
As for what the elder said, Zhao Hai had no intentions of forming a team. He was prepared to go alone. Zhao Hai was interested in what Zhang Feng told him about subduing these Heavenly Demons. At this time, Zhao Hai lacked any reasons for his overwhelming amount of faith power.
It must be said that Zhao Hai was very rich in faith power because of the Space. However, this fact couldn’t be exposed outside. He cannot let anyone know that he has a constant source of faith power inside the Space.
On the other hand, Heavenly Demons were well-known to provide faith power once subdued. Zhao Hai can use these Heavenly Demons as a cover for his source of faith power. The vermillion bird stamp would allow him to do this.
Although the vermillion bird stamp has become a miniature version of the Space, Zhao Hai couldn’t let the Undead or other beings that could provide faith power inside it. This was because these things couldn’t be exposed to the outside. What Zhao Hai needed were faith power sources that he could show to everyone.
Heavenly Demons happened to be fit for this requirement. As long as these Heavenly Demons live inside the vermillion bird space, they would be able to provide Zhao Hai with faith power. Later on, even if the vermillion bird space was discovered, Zhao Hai wouldn’t be afraid.
Actually, Zhao Hai wasn’t planning on exposing the vermillion bird space so soon. If it was known this early, then it would certainly attract suspicion. Therefore, Zhao Hai was prepared to keep the vermillion bird stamp a secret as long as possible.
