“No one had known that the number one treasure in the world, the Glassy Sky Pagoda, had actually fallen into my hands. But now, eight Celestial Venerables know about it.”
Qin Mu looked around with a smile on his face. The commotion here was too huge. The collapse of an primordial mine would definitely attract the attention of the Celestial Venerables. Even if Xiao, Qiang, Hao, Gong, Lang Xuan, and the rest didn't come here, they could still use their divine consciousness to 'look' at this place. They might not have seen Qin Mu walking out of the Chaos Mountain, but they would definitely have heard Divine King Zu's words.
In Qin Mu's eyes, the Glassy Sky Pagoda couldn't be considered the number one treasure in the world because it was too crudely made. The truly effective part of it was the ancient god egg.
However, in terms of power and transformations, the Glassy Sky Pagoda was indeed extremely powerful and terrifying. This treasure could be used to arrange formations and kill strong enemies. There was almost no need to use one's cultivation; one only needed to offer a plead to the Glassy Sky Pagoda.
A treasure like this, it's impossible to not be moved!
Even Divine King Gong Yun, who had a good relationship with Qin Mu, was no exception.
Qin Mu and Gong Yun used each other, so they weren't close. Perhaps only Celestial Venerable Hong and Celestial Venerable Xiao wouldn't covet the Glassy Sky Pagoda.
Qin Mu and Gong Yun only used each other for mutual benefits, so they weren't close. In Ancestral Court, perhaps only Celestial Venerable Hong and Celestial Venerable Xiao wouldn't covet the Glassy Sky Pagoda.
Even though Celestial Venerable Xiao wouldn't be greedy for the Glassy Sky Pagoda, he is someone who sealed and suppressed the egg of Grand Beginning and places great importance on power. He definitely wouldn't allow another ancient god Celestial Emperor to be born!
The other ancient god eggs were the same as him; they came from the primordial mine. He was the Grand Creation but his birth wasn't smooth due to being plotted against by Grand Emperor and had absorbed a large amount of the masters of creation's sacrificial offerings. Thus, his growth wasn't complete. The “egg liquid” in the eggshell hadn't been completely absorbed, nor had he absorbed all the Grand Creation Divine Stone and all the Grand Creation Origin Stone.
He had a huge flaw. His abilities weren't at their peak.
As for the other ancient god eggs, they still have to potential to grow into complete forms and they might even be stronger than him.
For a power-hungry maniac like him, this was something he could never tolerate.
“Heaven Duke's good son has caused me great trouble!”
Qin Mu took out the Glassy Sky Pagoda and stopped hiding the treasure. He brought the dragon qilin and Yan'er out of the sea of chaos.
“In that case, there's no need to hide!”
Qin Mu muttered to himself, “I'll give this treasure to whoever comes to snatch it! I want to see which Celestial Venerable is so strong that he can defend against the attacks of other Celestial Venerables!”
Outside the chaos sea, the void beast that Qin Mu had tamed was already waiting there. This huge beast didn't die from the impact caused by the collapse of the mountain.
Qin Mu leaped up and brought Yan'er and the dragon qilin to the head of the void beast. He looked around with the help of the Glassy Sky Pagoda and smiled, “I cannot die in any case. If I die, no one will be able to leave this place unless you all work together to break the seal of Ancestral Court!”
In the sky, divine consciousness quickly left one after another.
Celestial Venerable Hao's expression wavered as he paced back and forth. He suddenly raised his palm, and all kinds of divine gold and stone materials rose into the sky, quickly forming a gorgeous palace.
Celestial Venerable Hao thought about it, took out his Myriad Dao Heavenly Wheel, and hung it in front of the palace gate. He said in a low voice, “Celestial Venerable Mu, this fellow is still a hooligan! After all, he was born a country bumpkin and doesn't have any self-restraint!”
God Sovereign Lang Xuan had occupied Ancestral Court Jade Pool. Even though there wasn't much primordial liquid left in Jade Pool, there was still some. This place was also a treasure land.
The primordial liquid could heal all injuries, raise one's cultivation, and increase the strength of the primordial spirit and divine consciousness. It was no small matter.
Furthermore, the area nearby was where Mother Earth was born. The place that could give birth to Mother Earth naturally had a lot of treasures.
“Qin Mu, this fellow, took out the Glassy Sky Pagoda openly, so it's not good to snatch it directly. However, the situation means that he can't die. He really can't die. How infuriating!”
God Sovereign Lang Xuan laid down all kinds of formations to draw in the spiritual energy of heaven and earth. By taking advantage of the natural Jade Pool, the spiritual energy quickly turned into primordial liquid.
The masters of creation of the primordial era didn't have the knowledge of the later generations and thought that the primordial liquid is non-renewable. However, he was a Celestial Venerable of the later generations. He gathered the spirit energy of Ancestral Court to refine the primordial liquid. Even though it wasn't as good as naturally made primordial liquid, it wasn't far.
Mining the treasures of Ancestral Court didn't necessarily require natural treasures. One could also use the special aspects of Ancestral Court to create treasures.
Looting Ancestral Court didn't necessarily require natural born hidden treasures. One could also use the special terrains of Ancestral Court to give birth to more treasures.
“If I seize the Glassy Sky Pagoda, those old folks will definitely be happy whilst they beat me to death.”
He shook his head, “Divine King Zu is indeed shrewd, throwing out this difficult problem.”
This mine was the mine that Divine King Shu Jun had once occupied. Whilst the exterior is akin to a poor abandoned village, there was actually a universe hidden within.
She didn't fight with Celestial Venerable Xiao for the Grand Creation Mine. If she did, she would have to expose the void beast mother and risk exposing her identity. The price was too high.
“Although the Glassy Sky Pagoda is good, that treasure is too risky.”
Heavenly Lady Qiang had already built her palace. She threw an umbrella into the air, which transformed into a canopy that covered her territory.
In the palace, Heavenly Lady Qiang laid on her side on a cushion. She was charming and enchanting as she laughed softly, “The treasure in the Glassy Sky Pagoda is an ancient god egg. It's very enticing and will grant any request. In reality, it's using the user's request to strengthen itself and increase its power. This egg was originally Gong Yun's dowry, but I saw that something was wrong. I was afraid that another Grand Creation would jump out, so I sealed it.”
“After that, this egg and other treasures were taken away by North Deity Black Tortoise. North Deity Black Tortoise was the god created from the sacrificial offerings of my race, and this couple's knowledge is shallow. They actually refined this egg into a treasure. It's obvious they are dumb.”
She got up slowly and smiled delicately, “Why don't I go to Celestial Venerable Gong's place and chat about some gossips and deepen our sisterly bond?”
Celestial Venerable Hong also chose a treasure land, but this treasure land was different. It was a huge lake that was originally the origin of the celestial river and the stars. However, as the sky rose higher, the celestial river also rose higher.
Among the masters of creation, there was the starlords of Creation. With the source of the Celestial River as the starting point, they created radiant stars and they could change heaven and earth. Heaven Duke and the stars were born from the corresponding Dao.
From then on, the Celestial River and Xuandu became higher and higher.
The origin of Xuandu was this great lake.
'If I shatter Ancestral Court, will my Xuandu also fall down? At that time, the Heavenly Dao won't exist anymore, right?'
Celestial Venerable Hong looked around and sighed faintly. He prepared to build his own palace and use Celestial Venerable grade treasures to suppress the treasure land. He thought to himself, “The ancient god egg of the Glassy Sky Pagoda was brought here by Celestial Venerable Mu. I wonder if it's a blessing or a curse… Although the heavens have its own rules, the heavenly Dao is impartial. What should I do?”
He muttered to himself for a long time and didn't move.
In the Grand Creation Mine, Celestial Venerable Xiao raised his sword to suppress the mine. He looked towards the Chaotic Mine and said coldly, “Nonsense! The Grand Derivation mine collapsed, but that terrifying existence still came into being. Luckily, the seal of Ancestral Court wasn't broken…”
Celestial Venerable Gong also looked towards the chaos mine and frowned slightly. At that moment, Heavenly Lady Qiang's voice was heard. She smiled and said, “Sister Gong, I'm here to visit.”
Celestial Venerable Gong retracted his gaze and smiled. “Sister Qiang, please sit inside.”
Qin Mu held onto the Glassy Sky Pagoda and let the void beast carry him. After a few days, Qin Mu looked into the distance and saw Celestial Venerable Yan's palace in front of him.
 The term North Deity Black Tortoise refers to two deities: North Deity Xuan and North Deity Wu. Only when they are together can they be considered North Deity Xuan Wu (Xuan Wu = Black Tortoise).
 The translation for 太易(Tai Yi) is too difficult. Following the convention with “Grand”, I settled on “Grand Derivation”. I wanted to translate this as “Grand Changeless” in the beginning but changeless suggests permanence which is fatally wrong. It should be a term to represent something that is both changing and without change, something that is both increasing and decreasing. I hope the term “Grand Derivation” fits that concept better. To compensate, here is an extract from Daoist text and my butchered translation of it:”太易者，阴阳未变，恢漠太虚，无光无象，无形无名。寂兮寥兮，是曰太易。太易，神之始而未见气也。” (The one known as Tai Yi, Yin Yang yet unchanged, the indifferent grand void, no light no image, no form no name, solitary and lonesome, referred to as Tai Yi. Tai Yi, not even witnessed by the beginning of gods.)
