Chapter 753: Taking On A Master
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
"This place is the Heavenly Talisman Realm, to think that one can actually access this place from anywhere in the immortal realms, how mysterious." Qin Wentian mused. He was truly shocked. This method of entry bespoke of how terrifying the existence behind this place was.
"Naturally. If not, why do you think that the first requirement was for new members to have a violet-gold astral soul as their fifth astral soul?" Bai Wuya smiled. "In addition, new members can only join through recommendations by existing members. These existing members also had to be at the immortal king tier level and above or they wouldn't have the qualifications. Just so coincidentally I encountered you at the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor's disciple recruitment event."
"Also, there's also another stringent rule. After someone has joined as a member, they can't take on any other masters in the immortal realms. If the Realmlord isn't strong enough, how can he be so confident to have set such a rule?" Bai Wuya's voice filled with faint traces of pride. Qin Wentian nodded and asked, "Senior, would I also be able to learn the opening chant for entry access?"
"You would. But there's one point you must remember. You must never bring with you non-members when you enter this realm, and you must make sure there's absolutely no one around in your surroundings when you open the dimensional door. Also, never ever mention the Heavenly Talisman Realm in any of your conversations to non members, we place a very high emphasis on secrecy. If you breach any of those rules, and if you are found out, the Heavenly Talisman Realm will expel you and wipe your memories or even kill you." Bai Wuya warned in a serious manner.
"Understood." Qin Wentian nodded. This was one of the unique points of the Heavenly Talisman Realm. But as to why it wanted to remain mysterious, Qin Wentian had no idea regarding that.
"Let's go. Come with me to pay your respects to the Realmlord. Master will be able to sense it and officially accept you as a disciple. From then onwards, you will be able to sense the identities of other members if you encounter them in the immortal realms."
Bai Wuya brought Qin Wentian along as they strolled slowly. The Heavenly Talisman Realm was very vast and had extremely scenic scenery.
The skies are blue and extremely clean. The white clouds drifted about, the air was also very fresh, causing Qin Wentian's eyes to brighten.
"It feels that this world is filled with vitality." Qin Wentian drew in a deep breath and an intoxicated expression appeared. In the lakes, fish swam in crystal-clear water. The beautiful green plants beside the lakes also constituted a beautiful picture.
"Mhm, the Heavenly Talisman Realm is truly a paradise on earth. In fact the residences of many immortal emperors are all akin to a paradise of extreme beauty. But naturally each individual has different likings. Some immortal emperors love authority so their places would be imposing and majestic. There are some emperors whose personalities are more elegant and preferred a laid back and comfortable life instead hence the locations of their residence would also reflect that. Wait until you see the Heavenly Talisman Hall later and you will understand."
"I'm filled with anticipation." Qin Wentian smiled. The two of them increased their speed. On the way, Qin Wentian also discovered that there are many palaces and pavilions in the realm, they seemed to be the lodging place of the other members.
"These are where your senior apprentice brothers and sisters reside. How's the environment?" Bai Wuya laughed.
"Seems pretty enjoyable." Qin Wentian glanced at a hut before a waterfall. The environment was too beautiful. The mist from the waterfall permeated the air and this location seemed to be fit for an immortal to reside.
"You can construct a lodging place for yourself in the Heavenly Talisman Realm and you will be able to come here and cultivate often in the future." Bai Wuya stated.
"Okay." Qin Wentian nodded lightly. The Heavenly Talisman Realm was a world onto itself. If he met any powerful enemies in the future, he can even flee here for safety. Naturally he didn't speak of this thought if not Bai Wuya might hold him in contempt because he actually thought that he may need to flee.
"Haha, Bai Wuya, this is our new junior brother which you brought in?" At this moment a voice rang out but no one could be seen. A moment later, a silhouette flashed by as an old man exuding a casual air appeared before him. The cultivation base of this old man was unfathomable and he was currently regarding Qin Wentian with a smile.
"Yes. His name is Qin Wentian and he's recommended by me. I'm bringing him over so master can officially take him in as a disciple." Bai Wuya nodded.
"Not bad." The old man nodded. After that he turned and spoke to Qin Wentian, "Work hard, as members of the Heavenly Talisman Realm, you can look for me if you encounter any problems in the future."
As the sound of this old man faded, he abruptly disappeared from sight, doubtlessly without trace. Qin Wentian couldn't even see clearly how the other party left.
"That senior is really very harmonious." Qin Wentian smiled. Bai Wuya merely smiled back in response. Although the members of this place could be considered being in a same sect, it was extremely rare for a powerful senior to step out and take the initiative to greet you. After all, the other party might very well be an existence on the same level as Bai Wuya.
If these characters of that level were placed in the immortal realms, their statuses were countless times higher than Qin Wentian and he wouldn't even be able to see them even if he want to. The difference between them was simply too vast. How could there be a senior of that status telling a junior to look for him if he encountered any problems in the future.
"Indeed." Bai Wuya nodded. The two of them continued on their way. They met two more members on their journey, one of them nodded and exchanged greetings with Bai Wuya and the other merely glanced over and walked on without exchanging a single word.
Not too long after, a nine-dragon waterfall appeared before Qin Wentian.
The nine dragons spiralled in the air coiling around, soaring into the skies, all of them propping up a terrifying ten thousand foot tall statue behind their backs. Ordinary people wouldn't even be able to see what's at the very top of it.
These nine dragons were true dragons and emanated a feeling of extreme tyranny and were vivid and lifelike as though they possessed the fluctuations of life. Just a single glance at them was sufficient to cause people to be stunned.
"Is that the Realmlord...?" Qin Wentian's heart trembled. This statue was ten thousand feet tall and just a single palm was incomparably huge. On top of his right hand, there was actually an incomparably vast palace
But this gigantic palace was actually very tiny in comparison to the entire statue.
"Qin Wentian, this is none other than the Realmlord of the Heavenly Talisman Realm. Kneel down and kowtow three times while calling out the words 'disciple greets master.' Master would naturally be able to sense your existence. Go on." Bai Wuya transmitted his voice while he retreated a respectable distance away.
Qin Wentian gradually recovered from his shock. He stared at the statue before stepping towards a mat placed ahead and knelt and kowtowed three times.
"Disciple Qin Wentian pays his respect to the Realmlord of Heavenly Talisman Realm." Qin Wentian spoke with a solemn voice. From now onwards, he would be considered a disciple of the Heavenly Talisman Realm.
His voice drifted forward and echoed in the air. A beam of light appeared on the nine dragons as it shot towards the top of the statue. After that, a divine glow appeared in the eyes if the statue as it lowered its head and stared at Qin Wentian who was below.
"Taking me as your master means you have to follow the sect rules. Are you willing to out of your own volition?" A voice rumbled the skies. Qin Wentian respectfully replied, "Since disciple came here of my own volition, I'm naturally willing to."
"Qin Wentian. From now onwards, you are officially my disciple and can enter the Heavenly Talisman Palace and study the Heavenly Talisman Treasured Tome." The voice rang out once more, acknowledging Qin Wentian. Qin Wentian sighed in admiration in his heart. Seems like this statue could truly channel the Realmlord's will.
After the sound of the voice faded, a beam of light shot towards and enveloped Qin Wentian. It only took an instant and his entire body now had the fluctuations of light-type runic energy and also, a lot of information appeared inside his mind.
Qin Wentian closed his eyes and contemplated for a moment before kowtowing once again, "Disciple thanks master."
"Mhm, you can rise. There's no need to kneel even if you see me in the future. This is only because of the disciple acceptance ceremony." The Realmlord spoke. After that the light radiating from his statue faded as the surroundings regained its former silence.
Qin Wentian slowly got up as he bowed low once again. This was the first time he truly felt this kind of supreme unparalleled strength. This was true might. And although this energy didn't press down on him, he felt a shock that generated from the depths of his soul.
Qin Wentian had also seen the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor before. But the might exuded from the immortal emperor was a far cry compared to the feeling the Realmlord's statue gave him.
"Master has already left." Bai Wuya walked up and spoke to Qin Wentian.
"Mhm." Qin Wentian inclined his head and stared at the vast palace on top of the right hand of his master. That was none other than the Heavenly Talisman Palace.
"From now onwards, you are officially my disciple and can enter the Heavenly Talisman Palace and study the Heavenly Talisman Treasured Tome." Those were the words the Realmlord had spoken to him.
"Go on, I will wait for you out here." Bai Wuya stated.
"Thank you senior." This time, Qin Wentian turned and bowed to Bai Wuya, feeling gratitude in his heart. He and Bai Wuya were merely strangers but because of a chance encounter, Bai Wuya invited him here and treated him with no hints of arrogance that a stronger existence would usually have when facing those weaker than them.
That day during the immortal banquet, Bai Wuya was cold and prideful in front of the other immortal kings. This should be his character, arrogant and proud when facing people at his own level while treating juniors with kindness. This temperament was already something ordinary people could not hope to match. Qin Wentian would naturally feel gratitude in his heart.
"I naturally hope that you would have remarkable accomplishments since I invited you into the sect. There's no need for thanks." Bai Wuya smiled and patted Qin Wentian on his shoulder. Qin Wentian nodded and smiled back. A moment Later, his silhouette flickered as he soared upwards to the Heavenly Talisman Palace.
It was as though the palace sensed the approach of Qin Wentian. It's doors automatically opened and a moment later, Qin Wentian stepped within!
