Yu Chudu stumbled after Qin Mu and the others. The scene of Qin Mu killing the White Earth ancient god was still in his head.
He was greatly shaken by the earlier scene of the knife light and sword shadow.
Back then, when the Emperor of Endless Clouds, Wei Suifeng, subdued the 12 ancient gods, he was shaken, but it wasn't as bad as today.
Qin Mu's killing of Jing Baichuan also shook him up quite a bit. However, compared to the White Earth ancient god, the killing of the White Earth ancient god was much worse.
Yu Chudu felt a restless energy running through his body. He couldn't wait to pick up his sword and slash around wildly, wiping out all of the injustices of the world!
His senior uncle seemed to have a strange and marvelous energy in his body. It was very contagious and had already infected him, making his blood boil with righteous indignation!
“Senior Uncle, who are you exactly?” he muttered softly.
The dragon qilin smiled. “Clearly, he's Celestial Venerable Mu, the cult master of the Heavenly Saint Cult. You've asked this question before.”
Yu Chudu still wasn't satisfied with that answer. He muttered, “Celestial Venerable Mu, Celestial Venerable Mu…”
He was, after all, the most highly regarded disciple of the Emperor of Endless Clouds, Wei Suifeng, and his experience and encounters made him calm and cautious. He said, “Senior Uncle, you've killed the White Earth ancient god. I'm afraid we'll be exposed! All that the celestial heavens and White Deity have to do is interrogate the White Earth ancient god's soul, and they'll be able to find out who killed him!”
“They won't be able to do so.”
Qin Mu said plainly, “His soul was already scattered. Apart from me, who is able to reconstruct his soul? In this world, there's only one person who could probe the reason for his death. That's me!”
Yu Chudu's eyes widened as he unconsciously stopped walking.
The dragon qilin turned back and smiled. “Elder Yu, please hurry up.”
Yu Chudu hurried forward and said earnestly, “Senior Uncle, can you teach me?”
Qin Mu glanced back at him puzzledly. Yu Chudu quickly explained, “I don't think that Teacher's abilities aren't good. It's just that Senior Uncle's abilities are too strong. I'm greedy and want to learn a little more…”
Qin Mu laughed heartily and said, “I'm still at the true god realm now. Your master can fight a hundred copies of me with just one hand. His abilities are naturally very strong. It's just that he hasn't come into contact with the reform of Eternal Peace and is thus outdated. However, his achievements will be much greater once he has absorbed the results of Eternal Peace's reform after I have rescued him. There's no need to learn from me. You only need to go to Eternal Peace to learn everything I know.”
Yu Chudu revealed a longing expression as he said in anticipation, “Once I have learned the abilities in Eternal Peace, can I become as strong as Senior Uncle?”
Qin Mu thought about it and shook his head. “Not possible. Although you've mastered your master's abilities very well, you're not creative enough. When I look at your divine arts, it's clear that you've been using your master's abilities without any contributions or modifications. Even if you arrive at Eternal Peace, you can only rank second or third in Eternal Peace even after learning the results of the reform.”
Yu Chudu's face was as black as iron.
Qin Mu consoled him, saying, “However, with the results of Eternal Peace's reform, it would be more than enough to make you an expert in the celestial heavens. Jade Capital Realm existences wouldn't be able to match up to you. If you could combine several different Emperor's Throne techniques to cultivate a Small Celestial Heavens technique, there wouldn't be many disciples of the Celestial Venerables that could match up to you when battling you on the same realm.”
“Small Celestial Heavens technique?”
Yu Chudu's thoughts wandered far away as he excitedly said, “I heard Teacher mention that the Small Celestial Heavens technique is an amalgamation of several types of Emperor's Throne techniques. If one could integrate 18 types of Emperor's Throne techniques into one, it would be a Great Celestial Heavens technique. What if I could cultivate the Great Celestial Heavens technique?”
“You would become a Celestial Venerable.”
Qin Mu said plainly, “Anyone who can comprehend a Great Celestial Heavens technique is qualified to become a Celestial Venerable. In the Jade Capital Realm, you would be invincible and peerless. It wouldn't be easy for Celestial Venerables to defeat you in the same realm.”
Yu Chudu was ineffably excited, and he balled up his fists tightly.
Qin Mu glanced at him and said, “Every time an additional type of technique is added to the amalgamation, its difficulty is doubled. It's already extremely difficult to merge two or three types. To merge more than ten types is as difficult as scaling the sky. The disciples of the ten Celestial Venerables in the celestial heavens are rare experts, and even so, they can only merge up to six or seven types. There might be someone in the celestial heavens who's able to merge 18 types of techniques in order to make the first step into the Great Celestial Heavens. However, I've yet to come across such a person.”
Yu Chudu's heart went cold as though he had been doused with a basin of cold water. He hurriedly said, “Senior Uncle, what about you? How many Emperor's Throne techniques can you merge?”
“Fourteen types. Including my Unity Technique, that would be 15 types.”
Qin Mu was filled with emotions as he said, “I may seem close to achieving the Great Celestial Heavens technique, but in fact, I'm still extremely far away. Ultimately, it's difficult to achieve that. The ten Celestial Venerables are remarkable. When they fight me on the same realm, I'm at most stronger than them by a little.”
He then sighed endlessly.
Yu Chudu was stunned.
If one didn't come into contact with the reform of Eternal Peace, they wouldn't know how powerful it was.
Eternal Peace's reform was mobilized by Qin Mu, Xu Shenghua, Jiang Baigui, Emperor Yanfeng, Emperor Yanxiu, Lin Xuan, Wang Muran, and the rest. Although each person's level of contribution was different, they exchanged their ideas freely and didn't keep to themselves.
The foundation of Eternal Peace's reform was the reform of divine treasures. Eternal Peace's divine arts practitioners today cultivated the Spirit Embryo Divine Treasure differently from the celestial heavens. They dove deeply into the study of algebra, planting Builder Trees in their Spirit Embryo Divine Treasures.
When cultivated until the Five Elements Divine Treasure, the Builder Trees would run through the five elements, linking the five elements and spirit embryo into one body. It could still be considered as one divine treasure, but its power would be much stronger than cultivating the conventional way.
When cultivated until the Six Directions Divine Treasure, their spirit platforms would transform into six directions as their Builder Trees ran through them.
From the beginning until the end, the divine arts practitioners of Eternal Peace would only have one unified divine treasure even as their realms increased. Be it the control of their vital qi, the power of their divine arts, the strength of their primordial spirits, or the depth of their cultivation, they would surpass the celestial heavens' divine arts practitioners who were on the same realm as them by a great deal, even several folds!
When they reached the Divine Bridge Divine Treasure, the divine arts practitioners of Eternal Peace would abolish the Divine Bridge Divine Treasure and cultivate the Celestial River Divine Treasure. At this stage, no matter how many Emperor's Throne techniques the divine arts practitioners of the celestial heavens cultivated, they wouldn't be able to bridge that terrifying gap!
The most brilliant moment of Eternal Peace's reform was the reform of divine treasures. However, after the Celestial Palace Realm, the Builder Trees decreased, giving the gods of the celestial heavens a chance to surpass them.
The sudden eruption of the calamity of Eternal Peace was the reason for this situation.
At that time, the compassionate and upright men of Eternal Peace basically entered or were about to enter the celestial palace. Given their personalities, they would definitely carry out a radical reform of the Celestial Palace Realm.
However, the calamity of Eternal Peace erupted. Out of the three heroes of reform, Qin Mu got impaired, while Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor and Emperor Yanfeng were thrown into jail. The reform of the Celestial Palace Realm was hence disrupted.
Celestial Venerable Yu, who was the most likely to become the pillar of Eternal Peace's reform, ended up hiding in Youdu.
More than a decade had passed since the end of Eternal Peace's calamity. Eternal Peace's reform was now more focused on microscopic forging, led by Xu Shenghua, Lin Xuan, the nine elders of Disabled Elderly Village, Ling Yuxiu, and the rest.
Although their talents weren't weaker than those of Qin Mu, Jiang Baigui, and Emperor Yanfeng, when it came to making drastic changes in the name of reform, they were a little less open-minded and ambitious.
“Senior Uncle, we've arrived at the ancestral land of the Capable Earth ancient god,” Yu Chudu said.
Qin Mu stopped and stood outside the ancestral land of Capable Earth. The third eye at the heart of his brows opened, and he looked at the ancestral land through the surging sinister earth aura.
The evil aura was incomparably dense and prevented the outside world from looking in. However, Qin Mu's eyes had already seen all of the Capable Earth ancestral land.
