Chapter 1828 – One Hundred Thousand Experts
Zhao Hai looked at Hu Shan in confusion. Hu Shan forced a smile and said, “Right, to live longer. Cultivators in the Great Realm of Cultivation strive to become immortal experts. However, those cultivating in the Great Realm of Cultivation are bound by the laws of the heavens. Cultivators here generally live around 10 thousand years. Some special beings could live up to 15 thousand. However, that’s the limit.”
Zhao Hai didn’t say anything. Hu Shan continued, “But the fourth layer is different. Although the time flow on the fourth layer is faster, once you get there, your lifespan limit would increase to 20 thousand. And that’s 20 thousand years in the fourth layer.”
Zhao Hai understood. No wonder everyone wants to go to the fourth layer. While they could live up to 15 thousand years in the Great Realm of Cultivation, living for 20 thousand in the fourth layer was evidently much better.
Hu Shan added, “Moreover, if you enter the fourth layer, the sect you came from would get a lot of benefits. Benefits like the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield that the Black Tiger Gang controls. Of course, its other name is the Sky Tower. This is the benefit that the Black Tiger Gang was given after one of us joined the fourth layer sect. This benefit is the reason why the Black Tiger Gang has what it has today.”
Zhao Hai gave a nod. Then Hu Shan said, “The Heavenly Demon Realm was originally inside the Soaring Dragon Realm. While they were inside, the Great Realm of Cultivation wasn’t. Then later on, when the Great Realm of Cultivation entered the Soaring Dragon Realm, it was the Heavenly Demon Realm that was kicked out. It’s for this reason that an enmity formed between the two realms. From then on, the Heavenly Demons continued to suppress the Great Realm of Cultivation so that they could replace us in the Soaring Dragon Realm.”
Zhao Hai nodded. No wonder the Heavenly Demon Realm and the Great Realm of Cultivation always attacked each other. So there was this history between the two.
Hu Shan continued, “Recently, a lot of immortal experts from the Great World of Cultivation entered the Soaring Dragon Realm. There’s also a rule in the Soaring Dragon Realm. Once you enter and then leave on your own volition, you would no longer be able to enter again. The reason the Heavenly Demon Realm has more immortal experts than the Great World of Cultivation is because of this. Our immortal experts are inside the Soaring Dragon Realm. It’s impossible for the nine super sects to withdraw all of these immortal experts. Because once they go out, they would no longer be able to enter again. The loss they would suffer would be huge. Unless it’s a life and death situation, the super sects wouldn’t withdraw their experts”
Hu Shan breathed in and continued, “The spiritual density of the Soaring Dragon Realm is very thick. Cultivating there is more efficient than in the Great World of Cultivation. Therefore, defeating the Heavenly Demons shouldn’t be a problem if these experts return. Naturally, if the Heavenly Demons have a backing, it would be a different matter. This is also the reason why the Heavenly Demons aren’t going all out against the nine super sects.”
Speaking up to here, Hu Shan couldn’t help but sigh as he said, “Although a lot of immortal experts have entered the Soaring Dragon Realm, most of those experts are from the nine super sects. There are very few sects that could send their people there. The nine super sects have almost regarded the Soaring Dragon Realm as their private property. This is very disadvantageous to the Great Realm of Cultivation. Because of this, the nine super sects have become stronger while the other sects have become a lot worse.”
Zhao Hai now understood why the nine super sects seemed confident that they could deal with the Heavenly Demon Realm. So they had this ace in their hand. No wonder they’re still thinking of seizing power despite the Heavenly Demons already knocking on their door.
The Heavenly Demons were naturally aware that the Great World of Cultivation had sent their people to the Soaring Dragon Realm. So they sent a small number of their immortal experts to come and attack. As for the rest of the Heavenly Demon Realm’s immortal experts, they were reserved to deal with those who would return from the Soaring Dragon Realm. If the experts in the Soaring Dragon Realm were to return, an earth-shaking battle would certainly occur. During this battle, the small sects in the Great World of Cultivation would be out of luck.
Just as Hu Shan said, small sects in the Great World of Cultivation have become worse. If they get involved in the battle between the two sides, they would definitely suffer a lot.
Zhao Hai stood up and gave Hu Shan a bow before saying, “Master, thank you for clarifying my doubts. I will make sure to use this opportunity to grow the Black Tiger Gang. After this event, the Black Tiger Gang will definitely become the top sect in the Northern Divergent Province. It would stand above the other super sects.”
Hu Shan smiled faintly and said, “I believe you. With your present strength, even if the Black Tiger Gang does nothing, you can still clean up the Heavenly Demons. I’ll leave the Black Tiger Gang to you.”
Zhao Hai gave Hu Shan a salute before leaving. When he arrived at the villa, Zhao Hai let out a long breath. Hu Shan’s words caused Zhao Hai to see a more prosperous world ahead of him. It seems like the universe is more exciting than he imagined. He still has a long way to go.
After he returned, Zhao Hai sat down and thought about the Great World of Cultivation and the Heavenly Demon Realm’s matter. The situation between the two isn’t simple. It seems like he needs to make adjustments to allow the Freedom Alliance to protect itself once the two sides fight for real.
No mistake, Zhao Hai wanted the Freedom Alliance to survive. By this point, Zhao Hai has regarded the Freedom Alliance as the Black Tiger Gang’s property. Since this is the case, then he naturally would need to protect it. And if the members of the Freedom Alliance dared to disobey the Black Tiger Gang, then Zhao Hai would be impolite.
Naturally, Zhao Hai wasn’t going to make a huge move. The plans he made before don’t need to be changed that much. It only needed some additions. Besides the Freedom Alliance’s battles, Zhao Hai didn’t receive corpses from other battlefields to be turned into Undead. This was because they were too far and Zhao Hai was also afraid that he would be discovered.
But now, it seems like Zhao Hai needs to receive those corpses to increase his number of Undead. It doesn’t matter if they were cultivators or Heavenly Demons, their corpses needed to be used.
This was the method that Zhao Hai thought about to increase his strength. No matter how formidable immortal experts were, they could still die from wave tactics. Naturally, Zhao Hai wasn’t planning to sacrifice the lives of the Undead. These Undead would provide him with a rich amount of faith power. This was what Zhao Hai needed the most.
The conversation between Hu Shan and Zhao Hai was also broadcasted to Cai’er and the others. However, they don’t know what Zhao Hai was thinking about. Because of this, they stayed quiet as Zhao Hai began to organize his thoughts.
After some time, Zhao Hai made his decision. He looked at Cai’er and said, “Cai’er, did the Space already map all nine provinces?”
Cai’er nodded, “All of it has been mapped. Besides the core areas of the nine super sects, almost all of the realm is saved. There are only a few sects that we haven’t mapped out yet.”
Zhao Hai nodded, “The battlefields where the cultivators and the Heavenly Demon Armies fought, have they been mapped as well?”
Cai’er gave a nod.
Zhao Hai said, “Alright. Starting today, as long as there are corpses in the battlefield, take them all in and turn them into Undead. It doesn’t matter if they are cultivators of Heavenly Demons.”
Cai’er stared. Then she nodded and said, “Young Master can rest assured. I’ll take care of this task.”
Zhao Hai nodded. Then he sighed and said, “I have a lot of Undead, but I still have very few powerful ones. What a pity. Immortal experts won’t die that easily. And training one is much harder.”
Hearing Zhao Hai, Cai’er suddenly smiled and said, “Young Master, did you forget something? There’s a place that can get you as many powerful experts as you want. However, we would need enough strength to conquer it.”
Zhao Hai asked, “Where is it?”
Cai’er smiled and said, “Young master, remember the place you were sent to after leaving the Heaven Sect? It seems like the Hell Space, and it has all kinds of Undead inside. There’s also immortal-level Undead. Because we’re in a rush at that time, we didn’t look much into it. You also tasked me to map out the place. Why don’t we go there to capture some Undead?”
Pa! Zhao Hai slapped his forehead. To be honest, with how busy he was, he forgot about it. His expression suddenly lit up. He looked at Cai’er and said, “Thanks for reminding me. Otherwise, I would have completely forgotten about this matter. Right, Cai’er, how many experts does that subspace have?”
Cai’er chuckled and said, “A lot. The subspace is almost as big as the Northern Divergent Province. It’s filled with death qi and very suited for Undead. There aren’t a lot of Undead inside, only about a hundred thousand or so. However, these Undead are very strong. Most of them were at the transcending tribulation stage. Then there are about a thousand immortal-level Undead. Once we get them to the Space, we would no longer lack experts. We won’t even need to worry about the Heavenly Demon Realm.”
Zhao Hai nodded, “Good. These one hundred thousand experts, I want them!”
