Chapter 3073: The Book of the Populace
“As long as I can bring high grade Godking pills into the Darkstar World, it’ll be worth it no matter how great of a waste it is.” Jian Chen furrowed his brows and said to the sword spirits, “However, where am I supposed to find this spiritual fluid that is laced with Xuanhuang Qi There is a Xuanhuang Microcosm near the Tian Yuan Continent, but the Xuanhuang Microcosm there only opens once every ten thousand years.
It’s been less than a thousand years since it last opened, so there’ll be at least another nine millennia before it opens again.”
This time, the sword spirits fell silent as well.
Clearly, they were powerless about this too.
But at this moment, the laws throughout the entire Saints’ World came to a halt.
The ways that stretched through every inch of space like a great net fell into disorder as if an unimaginably powerful energy was interfering with everything, affecting the operation of the laws.
“It’s the Grand Exalts.
The Grand Exalts of this world have returned!” the sword spirits said sternly.
However, Jian Chen was in no mood to care about this.
Right now, he was extremely worried, irritated by the matter of refining Godking pills.
When the Grand Exalts returned, they interfered with the laws of the entire world.
The disturbance they created was far too vast, such that almost all experts in the Saints’ World sensed it.
A majestic palace completely condensed from energy sat quietly on the Prosper Plane of the seven sacred planes.
However, at this very moment, the space there suddenly split open, and a glistening palace appeared out of thin air.
When the palace fell down, it actually directly merged with the palace condensed from energy.
The Anatta Grand Exalt’s Heavenly Palace of Bisheng had already returned to its original position.
But at a closer glance, it was quite obvious that the Heavenly Palace of Bisheng was covered in traces left behind from battles.
There were even tiny cracks in some places.
Clearly, an imaginably intense battle had occurred in the chaotic space, such that even an extremely tough sovereign god artifact like the Heavenly Palace of Bisheng sustained some obvious damage.
At the same time, on the Devour Plane that also happened to be one of the seven sacred planes, the Bloodtear Grand Exalt’s blood-red divine hall returned to where it was before.
Compared to the past, the divine hall’s glow was clearly much dimmer.
A corner of the divine hall was even missing, having been forcefully smashed to pieces by terrifying energy.
On the Overarching Heaven Plane, the Overarching Heaven Grand Exalt that had just returned from the chaotic space was pale-white in complexion as well.
His presence was clearly slightly feeble, and the Divine Sword of Spirit Severance in his hand was dim too.
However, the Overarching Heaven Grand Exalt was filled with enthusiasm, radiating with joy.
He struggled to hide it.
With a flip of his hand, a greyish-white cluster of Qi appeared in his left hand.
It gave off a presence that seemed turbid, but it also seemed like it could emulate everything in the world.
“I have suffered a little in the battle against the Demons’ World’s Myriad Ghosts, but it’s fantastic that I could steal this wisp of Ancient Chaos Qi from Myriad Ghosts.
With this wisp of Ancient Chaos Qi, I’ll be able to refine a supreme god artifact that suits me.” The Overarching Heaven Grand Exalt smiled faintly.
“The Immortals’ and Demons’ Worlds managed to find seven strands of Ancient Chaotic Qi in the chaotic space this time, but we managed to steal four of them.
Bloodtear and I have both received a wisp of our own, while Anatta has taken two for himself.
The people from the Immortals’ and Demons’ World are probably absolutely furious.”
“Though, Anatta truly is a sovereign that ranks within the top three of the Saints’ World.
His strength far surpasses my imaginations.
If it weren’t for the Anatta Grand Exalt that held off Daowei Fatian’s book, we would have never been able to steal these wisps of Ancient Chaotic Qi from the hands of the three sovereigns of the two other worlds.”
On the highest point of the Heavenly Palace of Bisheng, the Anatta Grand Exalt was enveloped in a hazy light, wrapped in the laws and sounds of the ways.
He sat in the middle of the air and seemed to suppress the three thousand ways, like a supreme god high above the clouds.
At this moment, a ruddy old man appeared from thin air.
Facing the Anatta Grand Exalt, he was not overly reserved or particularly restrained.
Instead, he acted as he pleased, sitting down before the Anatta Grand Exalt with great composure.
“Anatta, you’ve saved me yet again!” The old man spoke, except his emotions were indescribably mixed.
However, he did not give off any special bearing at all, such that he seemed as ordinary as he could be.
“Ancient Paths, you’ve finally been revived,” said the Anatta Grand Exalt.
His voice was calm and steady, without any emotions at all.
The old man was one of the seven past Grand Exalts, the Grand Exalt of Ancient Paths!
The Grand Exalt of Ancient Paths smiled wryly.
“I’m owing you more and more.
Anatta, there’s really no way I can ever pay you back for this favour.”
“Our friendship has already lasted over a hundred millions years.
You’ve helped me in the past.
Now, it’s time for me to help you,” said the Anatta Grand Exalt.
With a flip of his hand, a Chaotic Fruit of Ways that gave off a chaotic presence immediately appeared out of nowhere.
He said, “Ancient Paths, you need to recover your strength as soon as possible so that you can forge the powerful god artifact you know as quickly as possible.”
“An extremely powerful book has appeared in the Immortals’ World.
It possesses unfathomable might.
Fortunately, Daowei Fatian still can’t unleash the book’s full power, or even we would never stand a chance.”
“All we can do now is forge the powerful god artifact you possess as soon as possible.
Only then might we stand a chance against that book.”
Hearing that, Ancient Paths gradually became stern.
“What kind of book is it that actually makes it so powerful”
The Anatta Grand Exalt extended a figure, and an image immediately appeared in the Grand Exalt of Ancient Paths’ head.
It was the various scenes from when he clashed with Daowei Fatian, though it was probably better described as clashing against the book than against Daowei Fatian.
The book seemed to conduct the three thousand ways of the world.
Not only was it extremely powerful, but it was indestructible too.
It gave off an invisible energy, enough to overwhelm entire worlds.
The Grand Exalt of Ancient Paths clearly saw the book and was stunned by its power.
At the same time, he clearly made out the simple word on the book.
The word was extremely ancient and filled with the endless presence of ways, touching on the deepest secrets of the cosmos.
It did not matter if the word was actually recognisable or not.
The moment he saw the word, it came to him naturally, without any guidance.
It meant populace!
“Populace The Book of the Populace” the Grand Exalt of Ancient Paths murmured.
Daowei Fatian calls this book the Book of the Populace.
Our Saints’ World has absolutely no knowledge about this book’s origins, much less any records of it,” said the Anatta Grand Exalt.
The Grand Exalt of Ancient Paths fell silent for a moment before saying, “We can basically find out, grasp, and know about all the secrets there are in the world.
There are only three places that remain as impenetrable mysteries even to existences like us that have essentially become embodiments of the heavenly ways.”
“The first is the Martial Soul Mountain of our Saints’ World.”
“The second is the Cave of Reincarnation.”
“The third is that vanished place…”
