Swallowed Star - Chapter 653 Sacred Table
Translator: Translation Nation Editor: Translation NationFrom the start of the battle, the gold horn race’s Bei Chuang had always seemed on top. Even towards the end, he was still very confident as he unleashed his strongest move, using the world crystal blade to unleash Space Tremor blade to cleanly defeat Luo Feng!
However the outcome was flipped!
The human genius suddenly rose in strength and completely destroyed Bei Chuang.
“How could this be?”
“How did he suddenly lose, just…”
Countless gold horn race clansmen couldn’t accept the result.
And the host of the match once again spoke with his booming voice, “This battle, the human genius Luo Feng wins!”
After hearing the result, Luo Feng couldn’t be bothered to go check on the injured Bei Chuang, he swiftly flew back through the pathway.
“Congratulations your majesty.” Dylan smiled.
“Your majesty Luo Feng’s strength is really out of the ordinary. You’ve been in the domain lord level 9 for such a short time and you are already able to defeat our genius Bei Chuang.” Elder Si Fan Qi congratulated him. However, from his tone of voice, one could feel he wasn’t completely happy.
“Let’s hurry and go.”
In Luo Feng’s ears, he could hear the over one billion gold horn race clansmen all shouting, discussing, cursing and even all sorts of challenges. Many of the youths shouted “Human Luo Feng, I challenge you.””Human Luo Feng, accept my challenge.” “Accept my, Ba Si Wa’s challenge.”
The challenges, the cursing, all sorts of noises seemed to almost tear apart the skies.
“We have to leave immediately.” Dylan nodded.
“They are too passionate.” Luo Feng shook his head and laughed.
“The normal people of the race highly wished for a victory. Bei Chuang’s defeat will indeed rile them up with dissatisfaction.” Elder Si Fan qi shook his head and sighed. “However they are normal civilians and their perspectives are narrow. They cannot see the true difference between the human race and our gold horn race, just the victory of a genius battle alone has no use in the face of our entire race’s survival. However…as it unites our people, even though we know it’s useless, we still have to support it.”
Luo Feng nodded.
“Your majesty Luo feng, let’s leave from the back.” Elder Si Fan Qi said.
Luo Feng, the elder, Kashna, Dylan and the 5 sector lord guards secretly followed a back path leaving the arena. However, the moment they stepped out, they encountered another group of youths blocking their paths.
“Human Luo Feng, please accept my challenge.”
“Human genius I Chi Nuo issue you a challenge.”
The group of gold horn race youths were incredibly passionate.
“Let’s go.” Luo feng frowned.
“Right.” Dylan nodded.
“Relax, it’s no problem.” The elder used his undying energy to suppress the group of youths and their pestering.
Luo feng’s group swiftly tore through the skies and headed towards the city.
The city was incredibly vast, there was another city within the sacred city, the sacred land.
The sacred land was the most sacred place within the entire Laos world. There were some training quarters within, specially prepared for the warriors of the gold horn race. One was called the Technique tower, and another was the sacred tablet tower. In terms of importance, naturally the tablet tower was higher.
“Look!” Elder Si Fan Qi pointed into the distance at a white tower over a hundred km tall. “That is the technique tower, where the countless techniques written by our warriors are placed. In there, you can read a summary of the many techniques.”
“Summary?” Luo Feng was stunned.
“Right.” The elder nodded. “There are countless techniques in there in order to help the later generations make the best choice. We’ve placed a summary of each of the manuals in there with basic details and information about it. That way, the reader could read through it and get an understanding of what they would be training and their procedures. As for the precise training techniques etc, it’s not in there.”
Luo feng nodded.
“Only once the person has confirmed the book and sent a request will he be given the true manual.” The elder smiled, “After all, we’ve accumulated manuals over countless years, and their worth is immeasurable. If we placed all the manuals in there, it would very quickly attract powerful races coming in to steal them. And right now with only the summaries and no training methods, it’s very safe.”
Luo Feng understood the reasoning.
“The other sacred tablet tower is where the tablet is stored.” The elder pointed at the other gold tower. “Your majesty has the chance to study the tablet alone, you’ll be entering that tower.”
“The entire sacred land is a city within the city.” The elder pointed around. There were quite ancient living quarters about without any fancy decorations. They were all made simple and looked ancient. With a glance…large amounts of them gave off a very special ancient feeling.
The pathways were filled with many warriors slovenly in dress and manner, all pensive and lost in their thoughts.
The entire sacred land didn’t have any entertainment construct or restaurants.
This was a type of training atmosphere!
“To own a place in the sacred land to train, one either has to be an incredibly respected and powerful warrior, or be an absolute genius, or a person the doyens respect.” The elder exclaimed. “The ones training in this sacred land are the future hopes of our gold horn race.”
“Your majesty, our gold horn race has prepared a place for you to stay.” The elder smiled, “Please follow me.”
After a while.
An ancient training quarters soon appeared within sight. Luo Feng and his group stood before it as the elder pointed at the building. “This is already considered a huge space within the sacred land. Your majesty can put your guards in here and even after a month of studying the tablet, you can stay here and slowly absorb the wonders of the tablet.”
“Your majesty Luo Feng.” Outside the quarters, a black armored gold horn race man bowed respectfully. “From today on, this space will be your living quarters, you can stay as long as you want.”
Luo feng smiled and nodded.
“You 5 can rest here.” Luo Feng ordered his 5 sector lord guards.
“Yes your majesty.” The 5 bowed respectfully.
“Dylan, follow me to check out the tablet.” Luo Feng smiled.
Luo Feng brought Dylan, elder Si Fan Qi and Kashna and walked over 100 km, arriving before the majestic sacred tablet tower.
He looked up at the completely golden tower that was over 100 km tall.
“Human Luo Feng.” A deep voice resounded within his consciousness. “I am the guardian of the sacred tablet, you have a month to study the sacred tablet alone, will you begin now?”
“Right now.” Luo Feng nodded.
The sacred tablet guardian immediately interrupted the group of gold horn race clansmen studying the tablet and chased them out of the tower. Some of them didn’t even finish using their study time…however due to there being a human, they would all have to wait a month before they could continue.
“Look, he’s over there.”
“I was studying well and was actually interrupted. I still have 3 more days. Now, I’ll have to wait a whole month before I get to finish it.”
“It had to be a human.”
Tens of gold horn race clansmen walked out of the tower and glanced at Luo feng, communicating amongst themselves. However they didn’t dare stir any trouble, chatting awhile before leaving.
“Dylan, you can all go back first. I’ll go study the sacred tablet and come out in a month.” Luo Feng said and headed in.
The moment he entered the tower, he felt a bone chilling cold. By simply breathing, he could feel the cold temperature permeate deep into his body.
“Human Luo Feng, I am the sacred tablet guardian, you can call me guardian.” A dark red skinned man completely covered in an exquisite black armor. Revealing only his purple eyes through his helmet, he stood there giving off an incredibly terrifying piercing energy.
Beside him was a 3m tall huge blade that was stuck in the ground.
It gave Luo Feng a formless pressure…
That didn’t seem weaker than True Yan Emperor.
“Guardian.” Luo Feng bowed.
“Enter.” The guardian said solemnly.
Luo Feng nodded.
He headed straight through the black pathway and proceeded. Very quickly, he entered an incredibly vast hall, looking up, he could even see the roof of the over 100 km tall tower. Obviously the entire tower only had 1 level, and within this vast hall there was a majestic crystal!
Crystal sacred tablet!
The entire tablet was 300m tall, 100m wide and 50m thick. It was made of a completely dark green crystal body, and it gave off an energy that made one hold his breath. Simultaneously, there was a hole right in the center of it.
The hole was about 30cm in diameter, with a depth of 1m.
It was a round conical hole.
“It’s different from the 52 primal chaos tablets of humanity. Firstly, the material is different and the feeling is different too.” Luo Feng stood before it and saw the 300m tall green crystal tablet. On it was a peculiar demon picture, a human shaped demon howling.
“Demon howling picture?”
“The entire crystal tablet has only this one picture, and the center actually has a conical hole?” Luo Feng muttered to himself, he didn’t think much more after that and began to examine the tablet.
The moment he focused on it.
His consciousness couldn’t help but get sucked into that demon picture.
Rumble…his consciousness was sucked into one of the wings of that demon picture. It was like looking at a vast endless space, and in it the stars were aligning.
Luo Feng just had some comprehension, at this point his internal world which had been stuck at the domain lord pinnacle level seemed to have been affected by something, suddenly it began to tremor.
“Ah.” Luo Feng was shocked. He immediately pulled himself out of his immersion in the tablet, understanding instantly what was happening. “My internal world is evolving and breaking through to the sector lord level.”
