Tales Of Herding Gods | Chapter 314 - Techniques Handed Down in the Family

It was Qin Mu's first time encountering such a strange incident as walking into the world inside a painting. This path of painting was different from Deaf's path of painting. Deaf's paintings transformed his paintings into reality. Fr example, if he painted a storm and shook the painting, a storm would erupt in reality.

Once, he painted the eighteen levels of hell, and the entire Heavenly Painting Imperial City suddenly crumbled, transforming into the eighteen levels of hell.

This was how his paintings affected reality.

The painting in which Qin Mu had walked into was a complete opposite. It allowed him to enter the painting, and when he did so, he became part of the painting. However, when he went inside, he discovered that it wasn't a two-dimensional world. It was three-dimensional, and there was a very vast space around.

'This is another kind of painting path!' Qin Mu thought to himself after examining his surroundings.

If Deaf's painting allowed his brush strokes to invade reality, then this painting path developed a world internally.

If these two paths were to ever complement each other and fuse, the height of the painting path could be brought to an unimaginable elevation.

Qin Mu pondered. If one achieved this step, with the raise of a brush, storms would sweep through a battlefield and bombard countless enemy troops. That storm could then sweep the enemy troops into the painting before raising the brush to erase that painting. This could be the so-called use of one stroke to sweep away a ten thousand men army!

Scholar full of pep, full of vim, nothing more than this!

Qin Mu pushed away his wandering thoughts. The attainments he had in the path of painting were far inferior to those of Deaf. This grandpa of his was like an insurmountable mountain which he could only look up to. He felt he should tell this idea to Deaf and let this existence at the peak of the painting path research these two kinds of painting paths, fusing the two of them into one.

He should then learn from Deaf again and it would make him succeeded in cultivating these two painting paths quicker.

Deaf was more proficient, so if he was to let him research before learning from him, he could save a lot of time to do other stuff in the meantime. Furthermore, Deaf's painting path would be able to reach an even higher realm.

He looked towards the man in white who had to be the painting of his father, Qin Hanzhen. He was once again alive in this world. When he had become the man in the tree, his graceful bearing and demeanor couldn't be seen. Whereas in the painting, Qin Mu could see the elegant manner of his father.

The only pity was that this wasn't the real Qin Hanzhen; it was just a man in the painting.

There was no sound in this world, so the Qin Hanzhen there couldn't open his mouth to speak either. He could only do some simple actions like writing and painting. He wasn't the real Qin Hanzhen and was only drawn by him. It was drawing bestowed life, just like Elder Painting.


Qin Mu came to his side and saw that he was currently painting the diagrams of Daoyin Technique.

Qin Mu was slightly stunned. "Overlord Body Three Elixir Technique!"

The man painting was already a strange thing, yet what he was painting was the Overlord Body Three Elixir Technique that Qin Mu was cultivating!

In regards to it, Qin Mu naturally had an extreme appreciation. He had relied on the Daoyin Technique as enlightenment to awaken his spirit embryo which in time resulted in his achievements.

The Overlord Body Three Elixir Technique that he had seen before was somewhat different from the Overlord Body Three Elixir Technique he cultivated.

He started painting from the first realm of the Daoyin Technique, but it was different from what Qin Mu had cultivated. It was much simpler and cleaner.

The Daoyin Technique of Overlord Body Three Elixir Technique that Village Chief had taught Qin Mu was considered the most simple and fundamental technique in the world. It was the technique that was the most suitable for ordinary people to cultivate.

Yet the Daoyin Technique drawn by the man in the painting was even simpler, but it wasn't crude.

Qin Mu's current scope was far different from when he was young. He understood the logic that the simpler the fundamentals were, the higher the achievements would be.

This was like painting on a white paper. The less thing there was in the foundation, the cleaner the end result would be. The things painted on white could be more exquisite and fine.

If one was to draw on a paper on which somebody had already scribbled, it would be difficult to write a fine work or paint a magnificent painting on top of such a foundation no matter what divine brush was used.

The Daoyin Technique of the man in the painting was simple to an unimaginable extent. Qin Mu tried to execute his vital qi according to what he saw, and at first, it was slightly sluggish, but with the circulation, it soon became more lively and boundless, reaching his limbs and bones, giving him a feeling of seizing the creation of heaven and earth.

"If I had had such a Daoyin Technique, I'm afraid it would have been even harder to break through the Spirit Embryo Wall."

Qin Mu sighed ruefully. When Village Chief had imparted Overlord Body Three Elixir Technique to him, he had to have done some minor adjustments to make it simpler for it to break through the Spirit Embryo Wall. If it was for the better or worse, it couldn't be said.

After changing the technique, the Spirit Embryo Wall was much easier to break, but the foundation wasn't as dense as it would have been with the Daoyin Technique the man in the painting had drawn. And at that time, the most crucial thing for Qin Mu had been to break through the Spirit Embryo Wall.

The man in the painting painted the second diagram, and the second Overlord Body Three Elixir Technique was what Qin Mu had seen in the valley of Doom Suppression Palace. There was little difference between the two diagrams, only minute changes in some places.

Qin Mu tried to execute the diagram and instantly felt like his spirit embryo bore the heaven and earth. This stirred heart stirred uncontrollably.

The Overlord Body Three Elixir Technique that he had learned from Doom Suppression Palace didn't have this feeling.

Spirit Embryo was the realm of martial arts practitioners. Only by reaching this step could one be considered to have stepped through the door of cultivation. The foundation was extremely important, but passing through the door was extremely important as well.

According to Qin Mu's current understanding, Spirit Embryo Divine Treasure opened the heaven and earth in his body. As he cultivated and his cultivation became more and more profound, the heaven and earth became more distinguished. The top was heaven and the bottom was earth. The spirit embryo was located in the middle, and below its feet was the spirit platform, breathing in and out the five qi which was gold, wood, water, fire, and earth.

The legs of the spirit embryo stepped on the land, and the body unified the six directions, which were heaven, earth, north, south, east, and west.

Qin Mu had cultivated to Six Directions Realm, and his understanding of these divine treasures was this. As for Seven Stars, Celestial Being, Life and Death, and Divine Bridge, his understandings wasn't deep regarding them, but he still had thoughts on them.

Six Directions Realm could cultivate the primordial spirit, and it grew as the spirit embryo absorbed the soul and vital qi during cultivation, becoming the primordial spirit upon reaching Six Directions Realm.

When the primordial spirit could leave the body, one would basically be at Celestial Being Realm.

Qin Mu had never felt anything wrong with his Overlord Body Three Elixir Technique ever since he started cultivating it. Only when he followed the diagrams of the man in the painting did he realize that something was missing.

Spirit embryo needed to grow into primordial spirit. If it couldn't bear the heaven and earth in his Spirit Embryo Divine Treasure, it meant that his cultivation wasn't there yet. What he was lacking previously might have been this.

He then looked at the third diagram. It was for Five Elements Realm. The circulation diagram Qin Mu had received back then wasn't complete. He had relied on the wisdom of Patriarch and himself to patch the circulation path. However, a flaw was left behind on his left shoulder.

Even though Qin Mu had relied on Great Educational Heavenly Devil Scriptures to patch it up, there was still some hinders when he executed his technique. It was just that the influence wasn't too big and Qin Mu was too outstanding. He was able to sweep through all the martial arts practitioners of Five Elements Realm and even some of the weaker Six Directions Realm's divine arts practitioners, so he had never delved into this problem.

The circulation diagram of Five Elements Realm that the man in the painting drew was a complete one. Qin Mu studied it in detail and let out a sigh of relief. This circulation diagram could finally patch the part that was missing in his technique so no more flaws would remain!

The fourth diagram was different from what he was cultivating now. It was more complicated.

Qin Mu stared at it blankly. From the first Daoyin Diagram, he had noticed something interesting. Comparing the Overlord Body Three Elixir Technique that the man in the painting drew and his own Overlord Body Three Elixir Technique, the techniques of the formed had a tendency to become more and more complicated. It was like drawing a sapling that had broken out of the soul and only had two budding leaves then slowly showing him grow luxuriant branches and leaves.

The Overlord Body Three Elixir Technique that he had pieced together was lacking in comparison. It was like a small tree whose one branch grew to the east while the other pointed to the west. Even though it could also become a huge tree, it was quite crooked.

Furthermore, the techniques drawn by the man in the painting had no divine arts. Although only the circulation diagrams had been drawn, when Qin Mu executed any divine arts, he had a feeling of being able to use it casually.

Suddenly, his heart trembled, and the sound of Woodcutter imparting his scriptures on the rock rang out in his brain. The reciting and the Overlord Body Three Elixir Technique drawn by the man in the painting combined, and Qin Mu opened his mouth in astonishment.

Unity Technique had actually overlapped with the Overlord Body Three Elixir Technique that the man in the painting had drawn!

It was fusion, an overlapping!

Unity Technique contained the general principles of Great Educational Heavenly Devil Scriptures. It was like the sacred tree that Woodcutter had imparted to Heavenly Devil Cult Founder. Unity Technique was the body of an ancient tree while Great Educational Heavenly Devil Scriptures were its thousands of branches and roots.

The previous Heavenly Devil Cult Masters had all needed to comprehend their own Unity Technique. Only then could they unify Great Educational Heavenly Devil Scriptures. Everyone's comprehension of Unity Technique was different, not one them being the same!

At this moment, Qin Mu combined the scriptures imparted by Woodcutter on the rock and discovered to his astonishment that Unity Technique of Heavenly Devil Cult was actually the same as Overlord Body Three Elixir Technique!

He had a feeling that space and time were in disorder. Unity Technique of Great Educational Heavenly Devil Scriptures was actually the Overlord Body Three Elixir Technique that he had cultivated!

"Could Heavenly Saint Cult be from Carefree Village? In that case, the woodcutter that had imparted his techniques…" He had a weird expression. "Was his surname Qin as well?"

He didn't think much about it and continued to look at the paintings in an entranced state. He subconsciously followed the circulation diagram, and there was absolutely no hindrance with his vital qi circulation. It became livelier and smoother with each pass.

When the man in the painting drew the eighth diagram, he finished the foundation to Divine Bridge Realm.

Qin Mu concentrated on memorizing it, not expecting the man in the painting to not stop. Instead, he continued to draw the ninth diagram!

"There's still a realm above Divine Bridge Realm?"

Qin Mu was astonished. Wasn't Divine Bridge Realm the last realm?

In that case, what was the realm the ninth circulation diagram was meant for?

The ninth diagram was extremely complicated and linked the first seven great divine treasures. When the vital qi circulated, all seven great divine treasures had to be mobilized. It could be said to be so complicated that one wrong step could cause qi deviation!

Qin Mu concentrated on memorizing it, not daring to be sloppy. Yet there was too much information contained in this ninth diagram. It made him dizzy, and his eyes dimmed.

Once the man in the painting finished drawing the ninth diagram, he stopped. After a moment, when Qin Mu had completely memorized all the nine diagrams, he moved and attacked.

Qin Mu immediately defended, and within a few moves, he was dropped to the ground.

Once the man in the painting dropped him, he didn't continue to attack. Instead, he waited for Qin Mu to recover before starting over.

'He's feeding me moves!' Qin Mu's eyes lit up.

On the deck of the treasured ship, numerous great shamans, shaman kings, and soldiers of Barbarian Di Empire were attacking the bridge while two white bats and a dragon qilin were guarding the door, not letting them in.

Pangong Tso wad checking the books and treasures he had ransacked so far.

"These books all have seals, and it'll be slightly troublesome to break them open, I'll have to mobilize the corporeal bodies of my previous lifetimes."

Pangong Tso looked at book after book and was somewhat disappointed when he couldn't open even a single one. Looking back at the building on the ship, he thought to himself, 'It's been two months already, and that brat is still hasn't come out…'

Suddenly, a door opened, and Qin Mu popped his bruised head out. When he saw him, he waved, and Pangong Tso rushed after him in a hurry, elated.
