Sage Monarch - Chapter 1596
Sage Monarch Chapter 1596
The essence of the god world had taken human form, and it looked exactly like Greensura. It might even be possible to say that it was Greensura, and Greensura was it.
The will of the god world had combined with Greensura in order to manifest itself.
Greensura was fundamentally an extraordinary individual. Considering she had given birth to Yang Qi, that much was obvious. However, the essence of the god world had changed her, otherwise she couldn’t have appeared in this fashion.
Which was more difficult: for an ant to turn into an elephant, or for an elephant to turn into an ant? Both would be extremely challenging.
“Hello, King of Godmammoths,” Greensura said. Her voice was clear and crisp, and everyone who heard it felt somehow comfortable and calm.
“Y-y-you… you,” the King of Godmammoths stammered, trembling physically. “You’re the essence of the god world? How did you take this form?”
“I’m Greensura, Yang Qi’s mother. Yang Qi is a Fateless One, and considering I gave birth to him, what’s so surprising about this? King of Godmammoths, you worked with the Sovereign Lord in the past to try to siphon away my essence. But I killed the Sovereign Lord. Yet you’re still buzzing around causing trouble for me?”
“You…” the King of Godmammoths replied. “What are you planning to do?”
He obviously didn’t dare to take any action. He knew that if he did, he could end up dead in an instant.
“Join me to deal with Yang Qi,” Greensura said. “He might be my son, but he wants to transcend the god world, and I simply can’t forgive crimes like that. And all I want to do is crush him down into his essence, that way the two of us can transcend together.”
“We intended all along to cooperate with you,” the High Priestess interjected quickly.
Greensura shook her head sadly. “You wanted to use your share of destiny to hatch all sorts of plots and schemes. Obviously, that won’t work. So I’m negating the clause about you being ordained as nobility. In fact, I’m cancelling the contract. You need to serve Proud Heaven unconditionally as slaves. After all, he’s my representative. Acknowledge allegiance to him, and you acknowledge allegiance to me. Understand? Now kowtow!”
“This…” Upon hearing that the contract was being canceled, a buzz rose up among the Demonfolk God-Lords. However, they didn’t dare to do anything in defiance. And the destiny of the empire wasn’t affected at all.
After all, it wasn’t Proud Heaven who was rescinding the contract, it was Greensura, the essence of the god world. She was so powerful that there was no destiny backlash for doing things like that. In the god world, she was completely untouchable.
“What. Not willing to go along?” Greensura laughed. “In that case, I suppose I’ll have to purge you parasites. All you do is lurk on my body sucking my blood. Not exterminating you is just a waste of my resources!”
“No!” the High Priestess said, dropping to her knees. “Oh mighty essence of the god world, we’re willing to acknowledge allegiance to you. We don’t need any titles of nobility, or any share of the destiny. We’ll give destiny to the empire!”
The Demon Master also knew that the only option in dealing with this entity that dwarfed the Sovereign Lord… was to drop to his knees.
“What about you, King of Godmammoths?” Greensura said, looking at him.
The King of Godmammoths hesitated for a moment. However, he knew that a wise man knows when to back down when the odds are against him. Dropping to his knees, he said, “I acknowledge allegiance.”
“Good. You three, plus those Demonfolk God-Lords, will form the Sage-Extermination Battalion, an autonomous group that focuses on warfare. I’ll give you the resources you need, but keep in mind that you have no authority in the empire. You follow orders, and focus on cultivation, training, and war. Understand?”
With that, she severed their connection to the destiny of the empire. Going forward, they would be tools used to attack the enemy. And they obviously wouldn’t be able to act in their own interests.
Greensura did things efficiently, both bringing them into the empire and, at the same time, ensuring that they wouldn’t cause problems.
Normally speaking, the god world wouldn’t have done something like this. But Greensura would. After all, she had commanded hosts of Demonfolk in the impure lands, back when she was the Holy Mother of the Hanging Mountain.
The combined version of her and the essence of the god world was now capable of countless plots and schemes.
“This…” the Demonfolk God-Lords murmured, exchanging awkward glances. However, they knew there was nothing they could do. They were now slaves, but at least they were in the Sage-Exterminating Battalion, which wasn’t a bad thing, all things considered. The downside was that they were tools, little more than thralls that Greensura was obviously going to use to wage war on the Sage Monarch Empire.
When facing Proud Heaven, they could have fought back, or found ways to cut him down.
But they had no chance with Greensura.
Under Greensura’s command, all of the Demonfolk were brought into the empire, causing its destiny to surge wildly. With the host of God-Lords, plus three half-Annulled experts, as well as Greensura herself, it was impossible to say how high the destiny would go.
Yang Qi could do nothing but watch as the Deathless Heaven Empire’s destiny skyrocketed. In fact, the god world instantly expanded as streams of energy swept back and forth everywhere.
It wasn’t going to be possible to avoid war.
It was now obvious who the major forces in the god world were. The Demonfolk Empire was no more. The King of Godmammoths had control of the rancorous energy caused by the sacrifice of countless Demonfolk, and he was fully on the side of the Deathless Heaven Empire.
When the destiny of the Deathless Heaven Empire reached its absolute peak, filling every corner of the god world, when there were no other organizations at all, and when there were no other forces out in primal-chaos, that would be the time for the final battle.
That moment was rapidly approaching.
“There’s still time to work with,” Yang Qi murmured, sighing. Thanks to the back door in the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart, he was aware of everything that had just occurred in the Deathless Heaven Empire.
He remembered everything about his mother, all of the details of her face, and everything else about her.
Sadly, this wasn’t his mother anymore. It was the essence of the god world, the mightiest entity there was, surpassing even the Sovereign Lord. It had absorbed his mother, and the only possible way to separate them was to seal the essence of the god world. That said, he was still convinced his mother was safe.
He would kill the essence of the god world, if he had to. There was nothing in the world he couldn’t do, and he truly believed that he was the most powerful and competent god-spirit to exist in the many heavens.
All problems would have to be solved through the final battle.
All fates in the world led to war.
After the battle was fought, perhaps the god civilization would evolve into a new type of civilization. Or perhaps a new heaven and earth would be created, a new universe and a new age.
Proud Heaven’s empire was growing, and Yang Qi’s empire was also growing. Both were devouring primal-chaos paleo-energy to get stronger, and both were putting everything on the line.
Meanwhile, Yang Qi’s cultivation base was rising. With every breath he took, his aura got closer and closer to being Annulled.
Unfortunately, he still hadn’t located the Sovereign Lord and the True Devil, which made him very worried about where exactly they were.
If he didn’t find them, the essence of the god world probably would. Obviously, it knew exactly how dangerous and powerful they were.
All of Yang Qi’s friends and family knew that war was coming; therefore, all of them focused heavily on their cultivation. There were no locations in the god world that hadn’t been explored. The ruins had all been dug up, and the most powerful objects had been added to the Everlasting Aegis.
The Everlasting Aegis produced brand new preheaven treasures constantly, and Yang Qi had even started working on the Minor Halls of Heaven.
As Yang Qi breathed, he absorbed the primal-chaos paleo-energy and used it to create all sorts of treasures. Then he took those treasures, compressed them, and used them to create ship-like structures that resembled the old Halls of Heaven, except smaller. At the moment, they only had about one percent of the level of power as the original.
He then inserted the small versions of the Halls of Heaven into his sage monarch magistrates, making them much stronger. He did the same with his friends and family, who would then be able to practice their cultivation much faster. Unfortunately, none of them were able to enter the half-Annulled level. That said, all of them were strong enough that they could at least hold their own against a single half-Annulled opponent.
His people were growing stronger and stronger. As for the Ascendants, they had already surpassed the Dragonfolk and the Spritefolk.
Although he couldn’t produce more half-Annulled experts, he had all sorts of God-Lords popping up everywhere. Their numbers reached a hundred thousand, then two hundred thousand. And when the men and women became couples, they produced offspring whose cultivation advanced rapidly.
Yang Qi observed for a while, then closed his eyes.
He knew that it wouldn’t be long before it would either be the time of transcendence, or the time of destruction. Everything would explode, or everything would die. The god world included. In fact, so were the immortal worlds and the impure lands. Once Yang Qi went to war with the essence of the god world, nothing would be left behind.
The universe was about to enter the cycle of reincarnation.
Either that, or it would never again be reincarnated, nor would it produce new life. All eras would end, and eternal night would come about.
He breathed slowly, remaining still and quiet in thought.
Then he sent a stream of divine will down to surround the god world. He heard voices that sounded like those of mothers speaking to children, holding them in a warm embrace.
‘The essence of the god world is calling me.’
He opened his eyes, and they looked completely calm as he stepped out of the Sage Monarch Empire and into primal-chaos. It was a dangerous thing to do, as he was outside of the protection of his empire and its destiny. Therefore, he didn’t want to go too far.
That said, the only possible threat he could face was the essence of the god world.
