Chapter 791: Terrifying Ancient City
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
"The ancient Driftsnow City?" The expressions on Pei Tianyuan and the others stiffened. The source of this boundless light was actually from that ancient city which had always been hidden beneath the earth.
"Why was this not discovered before in the past?" Many people felt their hearts trembling as their gazes flashed with sharpness. Without a doubt, the Driftsnow Master must have employed mysterious methods to hide the existence of this city from others. The light shimmering from it, was akin to a river of runic light that surged and flowed around frenziedly.
The experts who were on the ground rapidly soared into the air. The earth was undergoing earth-shaking transformations, revealing a brand new city while the old Driftsnow City was being replaced by it.
The trembling of the quakes it caused radiated over thousands of miles, stretching out endlessly. Although the new Driftsnow City wasn't as vast as the old one, it was still extremely large.
"In the legends, the Driftsnow Master and Immortal Jade gave their lives to create and refine a city. Could this be the ancient city created by them?" Countless silhouettes stood in the air. Given the fissures and earthquake, they could only find refuge in the air. And staring at the ancient city being revealed beneath them, they only felt endless shock in their hearts.
So it turned out that the legends were real. The city in front of their eyes radiated a terrifying might, seemingly capable of a myriad of transformations and was a truly weaponized city.
"Why are you all not acting yet?" Qin Wentian stared at the experts from the Jiang Clan with cold arrogance. The light radiating from him grew stronger as did the light shining from his eyes.
"As I have said before, from now onwards I am the new City Lord of the Driftsnow City. Without my permission, all of you are not allowed to come here."
The current City Lord of the Driftsnow City had an incredibly ugly expression on his face. The other experts stared at Qin Wentian, only to see several extremely powerful existences stepping towards Qin Wentian at the same moment. All of them took out their immortal-ranked weapons and launched attacks towards Qin Wentian, madly smashing against the protective lightscreen generated by the Nine Immortality Bells.
Qin Wentian coldly snorted, the crowd only saw the nine blocks of towering ancient bells start to spiral about madly, transforming into boundless runes. The bells disintegrated, leaving only the lightscreen behind. Qin Wentian descended, standing on the top of the recently revealed ancient Driftsnow City as a countless number of runic inscriptions shone their light on his body, acting like an incomparably resplendent armor.
Rumble!~ Only to see Qin Wentian's body growing larger and large in size akin to a giant. At the same time, wing-type runic inscriptions also took form behind his back, and the Qin Wentian at this moment gave off a feeling that he had just undergone a complete transformation, his entire person emanating something akin to divine qi.
"Bzz" The wings started flapping, kicking up a raging wind. Those incomparably huge pair of wings actually had immortal light radiating forth from them. It was extremely terrifying.
As for the vanished Nine Immortality Bells, they had all disintegrated into motes of light that surrounded Qin Wentian. Qin Wentian's will could instantly communicate with them, thereby controlling the city.
"RUMBLE~" In the air above, the attacks from experts of the Battle Heavens Immortal Manor landed. Their attacks transformed into fearsome war chariots that sped towards Qin Wentian. These chariots were immense and had silver spears attached to them. Even if a mountain stood in their way, the mountain would simply be smashed apart by brute force.
"BOOM!" Qin Wentian stepped forth, momentarily the runic light radiating from the ancient Driftsnow City illuminated the skies. A golden streak of light shot out, forming an ancient bridge that extended outwards, colliding directly against those war chariots causing a number of explosions. The impact shattered the chariots yet the bridge seemed completely undamaged.
Qin Wentian roared in anger. From a certain direction of the Driftsnow City, thunderous sounds echoed out as the earth churned. An incomparably gigantic palm imprint roughly the size of a few hundred meters materialized, shining with a dazzling light seeming as though it could smash apart anything in its way.
The expressions of those experts from the Battle Heavens Immortal Manor drastically changed. Their immortal foundations shone with a blazing light, as they drew more power from their cores. Immortal energy madly gushed forth, more of the war chariots were formed and they rushed madly into the palm imprint, slamming together in thunderous impact. However, that terrifying palm seemed impervious to damage, all forms of attacks would shattered when meeting it.
And as the palm imprint slammed into them, the war chariots were smashed into smithereens. Under the glaring light radiating from it, even those immortal-foundation experts had no choice but to retreat or risk injuries and death.
That palm imprint then arced through the air, returning and landing on the ground before transforming back into the earth. It seemed to be a component of the Driftsnow City which could be reassembled and utilized at any moment. Right now, it just seemed like an ordinary plot of land with no distinct characteristic that pointed out its extraordinariness.
"Is this the weaponized city created by the Driftsnow Master of yesteryear? How terrifying!" The crowd felt their hearts shivering, so did experts from the major powers of the Cloud Prefecture. Today, it could be considered that they have broadened their horizons. There actually was a divine weapon in the form of an ancient city that could directly launch attacks.
Pei Tianyuan turned silent. He stared at the weaponized city as a trace of jealousy filled his heart. Such a powerful weaponized city was in the Jiangling Country he governed, yet he hadn't realized it and wasn't in control of it. Right now, it was actually controlled by an ant-like third-level Celestial Phenomenon Ascendant which used it to threatened him.
This person even arrogantly stated that from now on, he was the new City Lord of the Driftsnow City, Qin Wentian completely didn't have him in his eyes.
Did Qin Wentian want to use this city and set up an independent territory? If that's the case, wouldn't he Pei Tianyuan have no more face left? His name would be the butt of jokes, he had no way to enter a piece of territory that should be under his name and in addition, the strength of his opponent was so weak that it was pathetic.
In the air, experts from the major powers exchanged glances. They not only wanted to kill Qin Wentian, they also lusted after the weaponized city created by the Driftsnow Master and Immortal Jade. They didn't expect that this ancient city would actually be so terrifying.
This was especially so for the Jiang Clan, they were a power primarily focused on weaponsmithing. If this city was acquired by them, they would surely be able to unleash more of its power. And naturally, this would serve as a boost to their status, and elevated their strength as well.
Now, the grudge they had with Qin Wentian, was no longer an ordinary one.
"This weaponized city would only be a waste if left in your hands." An expert from the Jiang Clan coldly spoke. After which, he turned his gaze onto the others, "Everyone, this person can use the city as a medium to attack. Let's join forces and wipe him out once and for all."
"Recalcitrant fools." Qin Wentian's voice was ice cold. At this moment, within the ancient city, several locations burst forth with eye-piercing light.
"Chains of City." Qin Wentian coldly spoke. An instant later, a countless number of golden-colored chains shot out with a speed as fast as lightning. These chains seemed endless in number and shot out from every corner of the Driftsnow City, shooting into the air. The experts in the air glanced around as their bodies trembled involuntarily. They discovered that the chains had already surrounded them.
"This..." All of them soared higher and higher into the air in a bid to escape but they soon realized that the chains ignored them and were shuttling to another location.
As for the experts of the Jiang Clan, to their horror they discovered that the chains were madly writhing and shooting towards them.
"Don't be locked down!" An expert bellowed, one among them took out a terrifyingly huge blade and directly chopped out, severing the chains near him in a single strike.
The other experts also respectively launched their attacks but they discovered that the chains seemed endless. Those chains that were severed apart would simply appear again and continued shooting their way. A few first-level immortal-foundation experts frenziedly launched attacks yet they discovered that the number of chains only increased and had already surrounded them completely, wanting to bury them within.
"NO!" A person screamed, "Save me!"
As the sound of his scream faded, those terrifying chains reached him and directly wrapped around him, resembling a huge golden python coiling around him. The other chains in the surrounding transformed into attacking spears that pierced towards the poor victim that was bound.
"Chi, chi, chi!" The chain-transformed long spears pierced into him. In just an instant, his body was full of holes penetrated through by the spears. Only then did the golden chains released their grip, allowing his body to fall from the air.
Not only for that expert, in just a short span of time, quite a few experts died in the same manner, their corpses plummeting down the air.
Jiang Yan was currently protected by an expert, however countless amounts of chains pursuing them was too hard to handle, and forced the expert away from him. Jiang Yan was left alone standing in the air as his countenance instantly turned pale white with fright.
"Swish~" Terrifying immortal chains flew over, instantly binding him securely. After which, they dragged him down the air with terrifying speed.
An instant later, Jiang Yan appeared in front of a towering figure. This lofty, 30,000 meters tall figure with shimmering wings was naturally none other than Qin Wentian.
At this moment, the gaze of Qin Wentian when looking at Jiang Yan was simply just like looking at an insect.
"Release me, please." Jiang Yan's body was trembling, staring at Qin Wentian with a fear that was born in the depths of his soul. At this moment, his life wasn't his, Qin Wentian was the dictator of it.
"How could this happen? How could this be?" Jiang Yan's heart pounded violently. He didn't understand how this weaponized city could be so powerful?
"Aren't you very high up and arrogant? Why would you beg so pathetically?" Qin Wentian spoke with cold disdain. After which, his palm shot out, blasting towards Jiang Yan. Jiang Yan's eyes widened as he stared at that oncoming palm strike, as despair painted his face. "NOOOOOOOOOOOO!~"
Jiang Yan truly despaired. He was a genius of the Jiang Clan, an outstanding one that received recognition from the clan. He was unmatched in this world and looked down on Qin Wentian but now, his life was being ripped away by this character whom he used to despise.
Miracles don't happen often. A rumbling sound thundered out as Jiang Yan's body was blasted into bits, before disintegrating into dust and gone with the wind. Qin Wentian took his interspatial ring and kept it with no trace of politeness. Since these people wanted his life, they naturally had to pay a price. The God of Death had already started his summons towards their lives!
