Imperial Lord Xi He didn’t mind their dissatisfaction.
He looked at everyone and said.
“Therefore, this time, I’ll let you guys connect to the Netherworld and perfect your Deity Position.”
The moment that was said, most people were surprised.
But this made them more vigilant as well.
The person in front of them had been hiding until now, yet he had suddenly come out to ask them to perfect their Deity Position now.
No matter how Jiang Lan looked at it, it didn’t seem normal.
There had to be a conspiracy. Otherwise, it wouldn’t be in line with Kunlun’s style.
Kunlun was even using a human as a money tree. Would it be willing to suffer a loss for nothing?
It was common knowledge that humans were despicable and cunning.
Apart from the two people from Kunlun, there were no other humans present.
“What do you actally want to do?” asked the Ancestral Dragon.
“I just want you all to become stronger so that when the time comes, I’ll have a chance to use you all. I won’t elaborate on the details,” Imperial Lord Xi He said directly.
He did not intend to hide it. There was no need to.
This was to prevent everyone from being suspicious and not daring to participate.
The impact was huge.
“What’s the details?” asked the Mixed Essence Witch.
“Kunlun shall establish the fortuitous opportunity platform and everyone shall choose eight people from each of your race to participate in the fortuitous opportunity battle.
The victor would enter the Netherworld and establish a passageway.
Among these eight people, there will be one representative from each minor realm from the early-stage True Immortal Realm to the perfected Heaven Immortal Realm.
To be fair, no same person can be used.
Of course, it’s fine if you don’t want to send a perfected Heaven Immortal or a perfected True Immortal. You just need four Heaven Immortals and four True Immortals.” Imperial Lord Xi He gave a general explanation.
The others looked at each other. Imperial Lord Dongqing then asked.
“The person chosen will enter the Netherworld?”
“Yes.” Imperial Lord Xi He nodded.
“What’s the use?” Imperial Lord Dongqing asked again.
Although the others did not speak, they all had this question.
However, seeing that they didn’t say anything, Imperial Lord Youdu spoke.
“So you people don’t understand it like me.”
Everyone else: “…”
Could they kick this person out?
Jiang Lan felt that the reason why Ba Country could live for so long was definitely because they were strong.
The others did not want to have anything to do with Ba Country at all.
The others were far away, so they naturally wouldn’t make a move.
The demons were so close that they did not want to attack.
It was obvious how troublesome it was to attack the Ba Country.
Most people fought for benefits, while Ba Country fought because they wanted or needed to fight.
He could also gain some benefits by standing here.
“It’s not just the eight people who are participating in the fortuitous opportunity battle. There are also everyone present.” Imperial Lord Xi He’s words stunned everyone.
“At that time, we can communicate with the Netherworld through the participant and perfect our Deity Position.” Imperial Lord Xi He added.
“Can you do it?” The demon Imperial Lord Qiong Gou’s gaze locked onto Imperial Lord Xi He.
The others naturally had some doubts.
They knew best if they could leave their own territory.
Be it their physical body or their consciousness, it was impossible for them to truly leave.
They could only send a portion of themselves.
And the number of times they could do so was limited.
This depended on the characteristics of their own race. Otherwise, it would be impossible for them to even do so.
“I can do it.” Imperial Lord Xi He nodded.
“Can we act?” Imperial Lord Qiong Gou asked again.
“Yes, but there are some small differences,” Imperial Lord Xi He replied calmly.
“How did you do it?” The Devil Ancestor asked.
“I can’t tell you about this, but the people you want to send should be best suited for you.
If you just casually find any perosn, you might not be able to use them to communicate with the Netherworld. Even if you manage to do so, the effect will still be very average.
Naturally, the battle of fortuitous opportunities is not simple. Those who win will naturally receive benefits.
And to receive these benefits, they need you to support them. If they can’t hold on, it will affect their performance.” Imperial Lord Xi He looked on as he spoke.
“Can we attack each other?” The person who asked this was the Devil Ancestor.
“Then that’s your problem. However, it’s fine as long as you don’t regret being sent out,” Imperial Lord Xi He said.
Then, the Devil Ancestor looked at Jiang Lan.
Seeing the other party’s gaze, Jiang Lan was rather curious.
He had thought if they were allowed to attack each other, it would be either Heavenly Human Yunxiao or Imperial Lord Qiong Gou who would act against him. He didn’t expect the Devil Ancestor to be the one who targeted him.
Why did he do so?
“I’m very curious about your strength.” The Devil Ancestor prompted Jiang Lan.
“Once you know, it means that you have been kicked out,” Jiang Lan replied softly, not paying too much attention.
He had enough time to advance. When the time came, he could use his home ground advantage to fight.
“When will the fortuitous opportunity battle begin?” The Devil Ancestor asked Imperial Lord Xi He.
“70 to 110 years from now.” Imperial Lord Xi He didn’t say anything at all.
It was as if he had long known that this would happen.
Between 70 to 110 years?
Jiang Lan immediately knew how long he had been in epiphany.
The last time Imperial Lord Xi He had looked for him, he had said that it would be between 80 to 120 years.
In other words, he had been in the sect for 740 years.
“Do you have any other questions?” After the Devil Ancestor had no further questions, Imperial Lord Xi He looked at the others.
“How many times must I communicate to perfect my Deity Position?” The Earth Mother asked.
“That will depend on whether you have a hostage in Kunlun. If you do, it will be much more convenient.
The others need ten, but you might only need nine.
The one that needs the least among all of you is the representative from the Dragon Race. You will only need four.” Imperial Lord Xi He’s voice was filled with a kind smile.
Jiang Lan lowered his eyebrows. He knew that the Dragon Race was going to pay a huge price this time.
It was the same for the Heavenly Feather Phoenix Race and the Heavenly Human Race.
“Is ten a fixed number, or is it just an estimation?” asked the Ancestral Dragon.
He knew that he had to pay a sufficient price this time, but he would not suffer a loss.
As long as he could be a step ahead of others, it was sufficient.
“Of course we have to keep this as a surprise until the end.” Imperial Lord Xi He smiled.
“What’s the point of saying everything?
However, don’t worry. I have no intention of suppressing you. ”
The others were silent for a moment. Although they knew that Kunlun must be plotting something, they couldn’t refuse the other party’s suggestion.
And with the great calamity approaching, there was indeed no benefit for Kunlun to suppress them.
After agreeing to this matter, their people wouldn’t need to sneak over to communicate with the Netherworld anymore. They could do it openly.
There was no harm in that.
As for the unknown harms…
There was only one.
They looked towards the center. This was Kunlun’s only purpose.
However, they would not give up either. The urgent matter at hand was to think of a way to surpass Kunlun’s foresight.
“How far have you gone?” The Nine Heavens Phoenix Ancestor suddenly asked.
This question was also very important.
Everyone knew that this person was from Kunlun, and Kunlun was connected to both the Netherworld and the Heaven Realm.
He had a natural advantage and it had been so many years.
Had the Kunlun Deity Position been completed?
“Don’t worry.” Imperial Lord Xi He explained.
“My status is about the same as all of you. Kunlun is also participating in the fortuitous opportunity battle this time. Our starting point is the same.”
“Oh, right.” Imperial Lord Xi He looked at the Earth Mother.
“Didn’t you say that you wanted your people to return?
I can talk to Liu Jing from the Second Summit. I think he’s very easy to talk to and will probably let the person go.
We can also release the phoenix. ”
He then looked at the Nine Heavens Phoenix Ancestor.
Earth Mother: “…”
Nine Heavens Phoenix Ancestor: “…”
The Eighth Prince thought that he would be released as well, but he realized that it was not the case.
However, he felt that the Devil Ancestor was really looking for trouble by provoking the Unparalleled Fist God.
He had personally witnessed the Fist God become a Human Immortal.
That was roughly six hundred years ago.
In six hundred years, the Unparalleled Fist God had gone from a Human Immortal to become a Celestial Immortal. He seemed to even have his hands on the Dao Immortal Realm already.
In another hundred years, he felt that he could burn incense for the Devil Ancestor.
The Devil Ancestor had no idea who he had provoked.
In six hundred years, he had reached the perfected True Immortal Realm from the late-stage Human Immortal Realm. He was still a few years away from the early-stage Heaven Immortal Realm, and this was already considered an extremely fast speed.
If he wanted to become a Celestial Immortal, he might not be able to do so even if he was given two or three thousand years.
Not to mention going from a Celestial Immortal to a Dao Immortal…
If he was lucky, there was hope for him in this life to achieve such a realm. If he was unlucky, there would be no hope.
However, it took the Unparalleled Fist God six to seven hundred years to achieve such a feat.
He was probably the only person alive in the entire Grand Desolate World who had seen the Unparalleled Fist God shatter the red dragon with a single punch.
