Tales Of Herding Gods | Chapter 947 - The Imprint of Celestial Venerable Huo

Ahead were the palaces of the masters of creation, a magnificent group of buildings. Looking at it from afar, the first thing one saw was its large tall walls that lay parallel against the cliff wall. It was extremely steep and smooth, with no gaps in the bricks at all.

The wall gave off an awe-inspiring feel before they could get closer.

This wall was as smooth and reflective as a mirror. Standing in front of it, they could see themselves and the scenery behind them!

The buildings in the city were even taller than the wall. Beside the wall lay buildings like palaces and towers, as well as defensive buildings like sentry towers.

Qin Mu and Luo Wushuang approached the city to size up its tall buildings.

This city of the masters of creation was too big. Compared to it, they were little figures.

The wall's smoothness was near impossible to create. Even the artisans of the celestial heavens and Eternal Peace wouldn't be able to achieve such a feat.

Their artisans could polish such a smooth reflective surface, but to create such a large wall and keep it so flat would be impossible for them.

Regardless of how good their algebra was, there would be tiny flaws in the construction process, but this wall had no flaws!

The wall of the masters of creation could only be created via visualization, not construction.

"Why aren't the buildings here decorated?"

Luo Wushuang gazed into the horizon and saw that all of the buildings were plain with no decorations at all. He couldn't help but wonder why. "Isn't it plain to have buildings entirely made out of white walls and red bricks?"

Qin Mu explained, "The masters of creation were like this. They were very outdated too. Their society was somewhere between tribal chiefdoms and a country, and it contained little art. They were like a bunch of primitives."

Shu Jun's angry voice appeared in his head. "You're the primitives! Country bumpkins like you are the primitives! We are masters of creation. Omnipotent masters of creation who created everything in the world. To us, you are the country bumpkins!"

Qin Mu walked towards the city and said, "Their lives were simple. Their tribal wars consisted of people wearing beast skin shorts armed with bone clubs rushing at each other, striking at each other's brains."

Shu Jun's voice trembled in anger. "B*stard, don't you dare insult us…"

"After they learned visualization and became masters of creation, they learned how to visualize beautiful ladies for pleasure," Qin Mu continued.

Luo Wushuang couldn't help but comment, "Such primitives."

Shu Jun was furious.

Qin Mu suddenly stopped. Luo Wushuang was perplexed and looked at him curiously.

"Wrong, wrong!"

Qin Mu looked up at the walls, visibly perplexed as he said, "This is the world created by the masters of creation. They created everything here, with no enemies. So, why did they built a city with such high walls? What made them so afraid…"

Luo Wushuang saw the link. The walls were used for defense, and such walls were clearly built to prevent exterior things from entering!

Thus, what were they worried about?

They were the creators of the Great Void, so what was it that made them feel fear?

"The walls are clean. There are no signs of battle."

Luo Wushuang said, "I feel that you may be overthinking things. Maybe they built the walls for show. Maybe they were narcissistic to the point of looking in the mirror all the time."

Qin Mu shook his head and retrieved a sword to scrape the wall. A sword trace appeared before it disappeared very quickly. The wall became complete, flat, and reflective again.

Luo Wushuang's heart jumped, and he said seriously, "This wall reminds me of a Celestial Venerable who was rumored to have created a divine art that allows a substance to never change."

"This isn't a substance created by the unchanging divine art, it's a substance created by consciousness, a visualized substance."

Qin Mu said, "This city is shrouded in the consciousness of the masters of creation, which makes it indestructible. Even if it's shattered, it will rebuild itself. On top of that, there are the sentry towers. The masters of creation had a chaotic combat style, which rarely used things like sentry towers. On top of that, the palaces and buildings here are high because they were built to see into the distance and observe whether enemies would strike."

He revealed his doubt. This was a world created by the masters of creation, so why would they create powerful enemies for themselves?

That being the case, where did their enemies come from?

Was it invaders from the celestial heavens like them?

Or was it that there really were terrifying monsters in the Great Void?

He couldn't help but recall the scene he saw in the consciousnesses of the walking corpses. 'Could it be the master of creation that plunged the Great Void in danger?'

Luo Wushuang pulled the core of the Primordial Tree out from between his eyebrows. After, his primordial spirit left his body, flew into the air, and looked into the city to survey it.

"There's no one inside… Celestial Venerable Huo!"

He recalled his primordial spirit, visibly surprised and shocked. He put the core of the Primordial Tree back into the heart of his brows and quickly said, "I saw Celestial Venerable Huo!"

"Celestial Venerable Huo!"

They looked at one another and instantly flew into the air before slowly descending into the city.

Luo Wushuang quickly walked forward. He only saw blazing divine flames in front of him that melted the void around them. A man stood inside the flames, twisting the space. His silhouette was blurred.

However, judging from the ring of flame behind his head, he was the celestial heavens' Celestial Venerable Huo!

Luo Wushuang walked behind him and half-kneeled, saying, "Spirit Elite Guards' Luo Wushuang hereby pays his respects to Celestial Venerable Huo! Celestial Venerable Huo, Celestial Venerable Mu led me here to receive you!"

Qin Mu walked beside him. Before continuing to walk, he said, "Divine Knife Luo, this isn't Celestial Venerable Huo, it's a void imprint of him."

Luo Wushuang was stunned. He stood up and followed Qin Mu to the front of this Celestial Venerable Huo and sized him up carefully. He was able to find the Great Dao rune that created this apparition, it was just that it was extremely small.

This Celestial Venerable Huo was merely his Great Dao imprint!

Celestial Venerable Huo was truly too powerful. He fought people here, and his terrifying cultivation and Great Dao imprinted his figure in the void of the city, unable to be erased!

Celestial Venerable Huo must have met an unprecedentedly strong enemy here that forced him to use his techniques and divine arts to their limits. His Great Dao rune was so strong that it imprinted him in the void, forming his figure.

Even after it left, the apparition didn't disappear.

Qin Mu looked in the direction of Celestial Venerable Huo's gaze and thought about it. He walked to the opposite side of Celestial Venerable Huo and stood steadily before pointing out, "His opponent stood here. Considering Celestial Venerable Huo's strength, his opponent must not have been weak, likely being as strong as him. Strangely though, why didn't his opponent leave behind an imprint of his figure?"

Luo Wushuang said, "Overlord Body Qin, you're looking down on the Celestial Venerables. Outside of you, which one of them isn't so strong as to be unable to find a worthy opponent? Celestial Venerable Huo's opponent naturally wasn't as strong as him and thus didn't leave behind an imprint."

Qin Mu shook his head. "If his opponent wasn't strong enough, why would he be so defensive as to raise his cultivation power to its limit?"

Luo Wushuang was stunned, for it made sense.

It was just that Celestial Venerable Huo was so powerful, so where in the world could he have found an opponent of similar strength?


A terrifying thought was birthed from his mind. Unless it was Celestial Venerable Xu, who was with Celestial Venerable Huo!

Celestial Venerable Xu fought Celestial Venerable Huo here, forcing the latter to use his full power, which caused him to leave behind the Great Dao imprint!

"And Celestial Venerable Huo got injured."

Qin Mu lifted his arm to point at Celestial Venerable Huo's imprint. Luo Wushuang looked in its direction and was greatly shocked.

The Great Dao rune on the heart of the imprint of Celestial Venerable Huo was extremely blurry, suggesting that his enemy must have hit him, causing the imprint to be missing in that position.

Celestial Venerable Huo was indeed injured!

It was just that, could anyone really injure him?

'Could it really be that Celestial Venerable Xu struck at Celestial Venerable Huo?'

Luo Wushuang was going to examine it, but Qin Mu pulled him back hurriedly. He shook his head and explained, "If it was a complete Great Dao rune imprint, it would be stable and unlikely to explode. However, a part of it is missing from his chest, which makes this imprint unstable. If you touch it, it's likely to explode and incinerate us to ashes!"

Luo Wushuang stopped immediately and looked at him, saying, "You know a lot."

"I'm a Celestial Venerable and an Overlord Body. Of course, I know a lot."

Qin Mu smiled and carefully sized up the injury on Celestial Venerable Huo's imprint. His heart stirred slightly as he asked, "Is Celestial Venerable Xu's weapon of choice a sword?"

Luo Wushuang shook his head and said, "Celestial Venerable Xu is strongest with divine arts and rarely uses divine weapons."

"That's strange, who used a sword to harm Celestial Venerable Huo…"

Qin Mu inquired, "Which Celestial Venerable in the celestial heavens has the best sword skills?"

Luo Wushuang looked at him.

Qin Mu rephrased the question and asked, "Except for me, who has the best sword skills?"

Luo Wushuang shook his head. "I haven't heard of a Celestial Venerable whose sword skills are unrivaled. Each one of them has their strengths. Sword skills belong to the Postcelestial Great Dao created by Postcelestial creatures. Which Celestial Venerable would attempt it? The Celestial Venerables seek Precelestial Great Daos, and only gods and devils like me who didn't enter the path would seek Postcelestial Great Daos like the sword path and knife path."

Qin Mu was stunned as a thought appeared in his head. He mumbled, "Maybe that Celestial Venerable could… Is he here? Is he really here…"

Luo Wushuang was confused about who he was talking about.

Qin Mu suddenly became agitated.

Throughout history, only one person cultivated the sword path to the point of 33 heavens—the first person whose sword path was top notch.

He wasn't within the ten Celestial Venerables, but he had the title and was one of the five Founding Elders of the Heaven Alliance.

Celestial Venerable Qin, Qin Ye, who had transmigrated with him into the Dragon Han Era, whose alias was Founding Emperor, Qin Kai!

'Was it really Founding Emperor who fought Celestial Venerable Huo?'

Qin Mu suppressed the agitation within him. If the person who injured Celestial Venerable Huo was Founding Emperor, then Carefree Village was in the Great Void too!

He really wanted to meet this ancestor and Dao friend of his!

'If Carefree Village is in the Great Void, then my brother should be here too! If I can contact him, I can find Carefree Village!'

He tried to establish a connection with Qin Fengqing but felt nothing.

Qin Mu frowned and glanced at Luo Wushuang. He suddenly smiled and said, "Divine Knife Luo, are you interested in making a Pact of Little Earth Count?"

Luo Wushuang was confused.

Qin Mu smiled. "Your knife against my sword. Knife path against sword path. We only use these two skills and no cultivation. If I lose, you can do anything you want to me. If you lose, you will betray the celestial heavens and swear your allegiance to Eternal Peace."

Luo Wushuang probed him, "You will lose heavily without magic power cultivation and with only our sword skills and path and knife skills and path. I have already cultivated my knife path to the point of 13 heavens and am about to reach the fourteenth. However, your sword path is still at three heavens, right?"

Qin Mu smiled. "Are you willing to gamble?"

Luo Wushuang shook his head. "No. I'd prefer that you fight me in the same realm, even if it means you have a cultivation advantage, instead of taking advantage of you."

Qin Mu frowned. "How stubborn."

However, Luo Wushuang's insistence did rouse admiration in him.

"Celestial Venerable Huo is bleeding!"

Luo Wushuang moved to the back of Celestial Venerable Huo's imprint and looked at the wall and its edges. There was a drop of flaming blood on it.

Within the flames, a sword light hovered above the fresh blood.

Qin Mu came to its side and examined it carefully. This was god blood of a Celestial Venerable, which contained a Celestial Venerable's divine art within it.

The power within the blood and the sword was contained, but both of them still felt fear.

"Don't touch it. If you do, the balance will be broken. If the power contained in the god blood of the Celestial Venerable is unleashed, this place will be completely destroyed!"

Luo Wushuang took in cold breath and backed off, whispering, "Even if I recovered fully and was back to peak condition, I still wouldn't be able to escape!"

Qin Mu backed off too. He didn't dare to release any aura so as to prevent breaking the balance of the divine art within the god blood.

This drop of god blood was too dangerous, and an even more terrifying fact was how if the god blood exploded, it would impact Celestial Venerable Huo's imprint and cause it to be activated too!

At that moment, suddenly, two lights flew on top of the tall city walls and danced around like butterflies above the city. It was two ladies battling to the death!

"Little wretch, you stole my man, killed me, and lived your life under my identity!"

"You're the wretch! You kept trying to harm me! You think I didn't know that? You hid for so long, but I had already guessed that you were hiding amongst the ten Celestial Venerables. Today, I'll skin you and reveal your true identity!"

Qin Mu and Luo Wushuang were stunned as they looked at the two figures above. Suddenly, the lights were separated. Yun Chuxiu and Lian Huahun broke apart and stood on two different towers. Their clothes fluttered, and their beauty was unrivaled.

"You allowed your son, Hao, to kill my son, Qi. Do you think I didn't know about that?"

"You reared a pretty boy, Celestial Venerable Yu, and hooked up with him to plot for the throne of Celestial Emperor. Do you think I didn't know about that?"

"Wretch!" the two ladies simultaneously hollered before fighting again.
