Swallowed Star - Chapter 796 Vanishing Without a Trace
Translator: Translation Nation Editor: Translation NationIn the desolate regions of Yan Ji main continent, there was an ancient palace that lay amidst endless ice mountains. No one knew when it was built, however it had become Purple Sky Emperor of the demon race’s territory.
“The captain’s mood hasn’t been too good recently. I just heard her scolding the vice captain earlier. We’ve been on the Yan Ji main continent for close to 10,000 years, and yet I’ve never seen her so troubled.”
“Right, however I heard that she’s this troubled because of a human genius.”
“I’m not sure, I just heard that.”
Two demon undyings in their puppet bodies were discussing secretly, they were both members of the renowned Purple sky team of Yan Ji main continent.
Purple sky team!
It was one of the teams that was well known,and its captain Purple sky emperor was an emperor undying of the demon race, who had the ability to teleport. The vice captain was also a low level emperor, and almost all of the other members were pinnacle official. The weakest was at high level official level!
Such a team, naturally it was renowned within the main continent.
Even though it was powerful, it couldn’t be called invincible!
Within the depths of the palace.
A lady with an incredibly beautiful fox head wore a black robe. Her puppet body wasn’t too different from her real body, her expression and gaze were also incredibly alluring.
“Plaus that bastard, he actually dares to provoke me.” The wolf head lady was incredibly angry. “Luckily the upper echelon are wise, can they blame me? It’s been a year since I got the mission and none of the members in the entire demon alliance in Yan Ji continent have even seen the human sector lord. If they cant even find him…how will I kill him? How will I do it?”
“Plaus, he dares to call me useless.”
“Can they blame me?”
“This idiot, he’s definitely enticed by the contribution points. By killing a human sector lord who’s points given were akin to an emperor, it’s hard to blame him.”
“It’s a pity that you wont get it, idiot.”
Purple sky emperor cursed.
Within, she was sullen…
Even though she was an emperor with teleportation, normally official and emperor levels all had undying bodies. With her ability, she could at most kill a pinnacle official, as for emperor warriors…there wasn’t a single emperor on the entire Yan Ji continent that could have a 100% guarantee of killing one!
A low level emperor was incredibly hard to kill!
A high level emperor was naturally even harder.
To kill a human sector lord and still get points akin to an emperor, this was naturally incredibly lucrative! Her close to 10,000 years of points probably didn’t even add up to a tenth of this mission! Hence when she got the mission…she was extremely excited!
One had to know that even though they were on Yan Ji main continent, the demon race had only two emperors. However there were a total of 329 emperors in the demon alliance!
The demon race had a lot of subservient races afterall. Along with some others that weren’t subservient…but those who come along form a distant location to be part of the demon race to take part in the outer region wars added up to the 329 emperors on the main continent under the demon alliance.
This mission was one that everybody eyed!
However, the internal department of the demons naturally passed off such missions to their own. Since Purple sky emperor had teleportation, hence she got the job. Back then, it had made many others jealous, but it was useless as this was an order from the top.
Purple sky was very happy, she couldn’t wait to go kill the human sector lord.
All of the members in the demon alliance on Yan Ji continent were given the order to immediately report if they discovered the human sector lord with strength akin to an official!
The moment they determined the location, Purple sky emperor would immediately teleport over.
One or two light years of distance was very easy to teleport to.
It could be said…
That the entirety of Yan Ji main continent was within her teleportation range, she could instantly reach any location within the continent. The moment she got a report…she would immediately teleport over to kill the human sector lord and acquire the huge amount of points.
What a simple job!
“The information department sure is lousy. It’s been a year and no reports have come over, no one has even discovered the human sector lord.” She raged within. Being able to see the prize and yet not get it was hard to swallow. The upper echelon gave her the opportunity to get so many points and yet there hadn’t been a single report.
“Human sector lord!”
“I don’t believe that you’ll stay hidden forever. Our demon alliance takes up a quarter of the main continent. Hence, I don’t believe no one will bump into you. As long as you reveal yourself, you’ll be dead! Dead.” Purple sky grit her teeth. She was waiting in anticipation while not knowing when it would happen was hard to bear.
At this time, Luo Feng didn’t even know he had become an important target for the demon race.
A glaring silver flash slashed past the air above the ocean, the space was instantly torn apart as a milky way covered the skies. The short half a meter tall other race undying was instantly slashed in two He was still relaxed before, but after reforming, he was filled with fear and shock as he discovered he lost 18% of his undying body.
“How can this be? How can this be?” The official undying was extremely shocked.
A few more silver slashes, the undying couldn’t even escape, only managing to self destruct at the last moment…the battle had ended.
“Hu!” Amidst the ripples, Luo Feng floated in space, a black pair of wings flapping behind him.
“Undying bodies are sure hard to kill.”
“The first time I came to Yan Ji main continent, the earth body had hurt the Wei Yi undyings, that was truly lucky. Those two undying bodies were probably still very weak and new. Now however… I am coming across the stronger basic officials, and I’m unable to hurt them relying on my blade alone.” Luo Feng shook his head. “Using my blade is ineffective against them, I have to rely on the Sha Wu wings! The Sha Wu wings sure are powerful, even though the earth body is much weaker and can only trigger a pitiful amount of its space energy, I am still able to kill a low level official already.”
“Time to leave.”
Luo Feng collected the goods and sat in his ship, leaving far from the battlefield.
Within the ship.
Luo Feng sat in the control room. Same old rules applied, he closed off his first device’s jamming abilities and using his second device normally.
“The Sha Wu wings sure are useful.”
“With it, the earth body that could only kill an undying general before can now kill a low level official. And the Golden horned beast…can kill a pinnacle official.”
“And the wings also make the enemies unable to sense my power level accurately.”
He laughed happily.
When he first came to the main continent, clashing with the Gold fear demon and Wei Yi undyings, Luo Feng realized a problem… “There were too many powerful warriors on the main continent, totally unlike Fog island. There, a low official can become a tyrant, with only ten or so of them. In this main continent however… I heard there are over a 1,000 emperors.”
These were facts.
Even though the humans only had three emperors on the main continent! However there were many other subservient races under humanity and its alliances. Together, they had a few hundred emperors. Afterall, this included tens of thousands of races. With one emperor for every ten races on the main continent, this made the number of emperors very high.
In total, the main continent had over a 1,000 emperors.
Compared to the large amounts of generals and officials, the emperor numbers were incredibly pitiful.
“There are many powerful warriors on Yan Ji continent.”
“I could still mess around on Fog island, however on the main continent, battling over and over with official pinnacles with the chance of meeting a low emperor. This could result in the other races targeting me, Teacher had warned me of this before, what can I do?” Luo Feng had pondered back then.
He quickly came up with an idea!
The Sha Wu wings!
The wings were a true treasure, and when used on the Golden horned beast, it completely hid the beast’s energy levels. The natural pressure it released…made the enemy think it was a powerful warrior.
One theory was.
The wings on the earth body could naturally hide his energy.
“I’m so smart.”
“Combining the earth body with the wings and controlling the pressure released, acting as a pinnacle official.”
The Golden horned beast with the wings can release more strength.”
“That way, a pinnacle official human becomes extremely normal here.” Luo Feng was very happy.
After which, he acted according to his plan.
Exploring the main continent, the beast and his human body would never appear simultaneously.
Some battles were for his earth body to train, and the beast would never reveal itself unless an unexpected danger presented itself. These battles were for him to work on his bladework and study Moon policy.
During some other battles, the human body wouldn’t even show himself, and used the Golden horned beast from the beginning combined with the Sha Wu wings. These battles were mainly for accumulating contribution points. Afterall, the efficiency of the beast in collecting points was much higher.
These were the two types of battles.
One was for training and the other was for points.
Luo Feng was having a blast on the main continent. It had been a year since his battle with the Wei Yi undyings. There had been six battles and he had encountered ten other undyings. During which, he used his earth body to battle three of them and three for the Golden horned beast. He killed a total of five officials and three generals.
The efficiency was very high.
“A low official is not even worth me training my blade work. I have to find powerful warriors, like a high official to give me a good challenge.” Luo Feng was very excited. Battling the many other races along with their many techniques and methods gave him an excitement from the hunt.
