Tales of Herding Gods - Chapter 1728
Butcher and Divine Knife Camp had just rushed into the main camp of the celestial heavens when they were met with the celestial fort army that was continuously surging over to block their path.
The celestial fort army was known for their formations, and they were known as the impenetrable defense of the celestial heavens. The commander of the celestial fort was the star god that had ascended the stage, and he was also known for his gold saddle. There was no lack of Emperor's Throne Realm experts under his command!
The celestial fort was in charge of defending the city. Because Eternal Peace's attacks were too fierce, the city walls were crushed by Granny Si's army. Butcher led the divine knife camp into the city, and they were immediately surrounded by the celestial fort.
"History shines on the core!"
Butcher shouted, and his knife will connected with Luo Wushuang, Zhe Huali, and Ba Shan. The Dao Realm of the knife path was instantly comprehended and merged into one. However, this kind of formation where the knife realm became one required the practitioners to go through the sharpening of the God Execution Stage before they could fuse their knife will and knife path into one and raise their cultivation in the Dao Realm.
Back then, during the battle of Xuandu, Qin Mu, Butcher, Luo Wushuang, Zhe Huali, and Tian Shu had worked together to raise the realm of the knife path to the thirty-first heaven, barely reaching the Celestial Venerable level.
Now that the Five Ancestors of Knife Dao lacked Qin Mu and Tian Shu, even though Ba Shan's knife skill cultivation wasn't weak, he was still much inferior to Qin Mu and Tian Shu.
Luckily, dozens of years after the battle of Xuandu ended, Butcher, Zhe Huali, and Luo Wushuang's knife path had improved at a godly speed, making up for the shortcomings of High Mount Ba.
The four of them moved in different directions, and the thirty heavens of the knife path burst forth. They slaughtered their way into the celestial fort army and went straight for the golden saddle.
The golden saddle was not afraid at all. It rushed straight at the four of them, and with a shake of its body, it transformed into a Xiezhi. Other than Luo Wushuang, the four of them were nobodies. However, when their figures crossed, the head of the golden saddle fell to the ground. His primordial spirit immediately left his body and tried to escape. However, a knife light flashed past and his primordial spirit was also killed!
The four of them did their best to lead the Divine Knife Camp towards the battlefield of Woodcutter and the rest. The Divine Knife Camp was like a hot knife cutting through butter, but there were simply too many soldiers in front of them, making it hard for them to advance.
Granny Si rode on the huge beast and led the army over, protecting the left and right sides to help them defend against the celestial heavens' troops.
Behind Granny Si, a Primordial Tree slowly rose up. Gongsun Yan walked over, and the Primordial Tree grew even more lush. Gongsun Yan raised her hand, and the divine power of magnetism rumbled, crushing all the soldiers of the various troops of the celestial heavens to the ground. They couldn't move at all.
Gongsun Yan raised her hand to clear the sky, clearing out a huge space.
"Sacrifice the primordial spirit!"
The soldiers that were pressed to the ground shouted, and their primordial spirits flew out to pounce at Gongsun Yan. The magnetic force couldn't do anything to their primordial spirits.
Suddenly, the roars of dragons reverberated in the sky. Emperor Yanfeng stood on the ship and executed his profound art. The Ancestral Dragon Celestial Palace floated in the air, and ten thousand dragons danced in the air as they attacked the primordial spirits of the soldiers of the celestial heavens.
Instantly, countless black soul sand whistled in the sky, and their primordial spirits were shattered one after another, turning into black sand.
Right at this moment, the left and right armies of divine might rushed over and rushed towards Emperor Yanfeng. The hundred or so divine cities of Eternal Peace that were following behind the flying ships burst forth with light, blocking the left and right armies.
Celestial Venerable Yue sat on the city tower and lowered her head to play the zither. The sound of the zither rang out, and suddenly, the hundred thousand soldiers of the Divine Might Guards felt the world spinning and vanished. They had been exiled somewhere by her space technique!
The two Divine Might Guards immediately set up the formation and transformed into the Fire Saint Devil Shattering Formation. Within the two formations, two apparitions of Celestial Venerable Huo rose up, and the Dao flames behind their heads were like wheels. It was the two Divine Might Guards using their own magic power to replicate Celestial Venerable Huo's paths, skills, and divine arts!
This Fire Saint Devil Piercing Formation was also designed by Heavenly Teacher Meng Yungui and was controlled by the two Divine Might Guards. It was specialized in breaking through Celestial Venerable Yue's Extreme Void!
Celestial Venerable Yue raised her eyebrows, and her body flew up from the city tower of the god city. In the next moment, she entered the formation of the two Divine Might Guards. At the same time, Goddess of Heavenly Yin raised her hand and threw out the hourglass. The hourglass flew into the two formations and suddenly exploded. Black soul sand poured out, and darkness filled the air.
The Dao fire of the two formations also couldn't melt the black soul sand. Instantly, the two formations fell into darkness, and Gongsun Yan flew up, transforming into the Primordial Tree and throwing herself into the two dark formations.
The formation was activated, and the Primordial Tree instantly burst into flames. However, it managed to block the two Fire Saint Devil Piercing Formations for a moment.
In that instant, the sound of a zither came from the darkness. In the next moment, the two formations split into hundreds of pieces.
The sound of the zither became more urgent. Celestial Venerable Yue plucked the strings of the zither and suddenly executed her magic power. Suddenly, space swirled, and tens of thousands of soldiers of the Divine Might Guards were stretched and flattened by the sound of the zither. Suddenly, a spatial crack appeared, revealing chaotic space.
Celestial Venerable Yue flicked her sleeves and strummed the zither. The sound of the zither rang out, and the tens of thousands of soldiers whistled away, exiled into the depths of the chaotic space!
However, the power of those tens of thousands of Divine Might Guards was simply too strong. A single Divine Might Guard wasn't enough to fight against Celestial Venerable Yue, but the leader of the formation diagrams was a top-notch Emperor's Throne existence in the celestial heavens. He activated the formation diagrams and pulled the Divine Might Guards into the formation diagrams. The formation diagrams were activated again, and layers of space were distorted, trying to escape from Celestial Venerable Yue's divine art!
Celestial Venerable Yue's ten fingers moved as if she had grown countless arms. Her fingers were like illusions as she tried her best to resist the Fire Saint Devil Piercing Formation, sending the two guards into the depths of the chaotic space.
However, the magic power of the two guards was simply too strong. Even if she tried her best, she couldn't completely exile them.
Right at this moment, a Dao name suddenly rang out, sounding extremely resonant and melodious. "Dao Sword breaking through the heavenly handle!"
The sword light broke through the air and followed Celestial Venerable Yue's zither notes, rushing into the chaotic space. An old Daoist walked over, and behind him were the tens of thousands of Daoists of Eternal Peace's Dao Sect. The Dao Sword in his hand was unleashed, stabbing into the chaotic space along with the zither notes!
In the chaotic space, blood light appeared, and the bodies exploded.
Celestial Venerable Yue's divine art was unimpeded as she exiled the two guards into the deepest part of the chaotic space.
"Daoists, enter the city!" The old Daoist sheathed his sword and led tens of thousands of Daoists into the main camp of the celestial heavens.
Celestial Venerable Yue exiled the two guards of the ten guards of the celestial heavens, and her cultivation was greatly exhausted. She hurriedly executed her remaining magic power to extinguish the Dao fire on Gongsun Yan's body. She saw that the girl had already been charred black like charcoal and was barely breathing.
Celestial Venerable Yue waved her hand and sent Gongsun Yan back to the god city of Eternal Peace. In the god city, Apothecary immediately went forward to treat Gongsun Yan.
Celestial Venerable Yue didn't have much magic power left. She had been weakened by three realms in a row. Even though her Dao Realm was profound and she had cultivated to the 35 heavens of the Dao Realm, her magic power couldn't keep up.
She gritted her teeth and plucked the strings, activating all of her remaining magic power. With a few loud cracking sounds, the huge camp of the celestial heavens that stretched for hundreds of thousands of miles suddenly split into seventy to eighty percent and floated in different directions!
Celestial Venerable Yue vomited blood, and her ten fingers were dripping with blood. The strings of the guqin broke, and she fell from the sky.
Goddess of Heavenly Yin hurriedly caught her and was about to send her back to the god city behind them when Celestial Venerable Yue shook her head. "I just need to rest for a moment. Don't bother about me, enter the city as soon as possible!"
Goddess of Heavenly Yin placed her on her shoulder and walked into the city. She executed the divine arts of Heavenly Yin World, and the primordial spirits of the gods and devils of the celestial heavens exploded before they could even reach her. Black soul sand spewed out from their eyes, ears, mouth, and nose, looking extremely terrifying.
The various armies rushed towards the main camp of the celestial heavens with all their might and fought bloody battles. On the celestial river, violent waves could be felt. The Black Tortoise and Black Tortoise Deity would sometimes reveal their true forms and sometimes split into two. They would transform into Deity Xuan and Deity Wu and lead the soldiers of the North Pole to fight.
Wei Suifeng set up the formation, and the Great Celestial Heavens activated. They surged into the Celestial River Navy, sweeping everything before them.
The celestial river had long been dyed into a blood red river.
In Youdu, Qin Fengqing suddenly stomped his feet, and the dark Youdu devil qi broke through the boundary between Youdu and the world of the living. A huge Gate of Heaven Influence appeared in the main camp of the celestial heavens!
The gate of Gate of Heaven Influence opened, and countless gods and devils that had died in the battle of Carefree Village rushed out of the gate on paper horses and slaughtered their way into the main camp of the celestial heavens!
"Where is our Xuandu army?"
In the main camp of the celestial heavens, a soldier cried out in despair, "The Xuandu army specializes in subduing Youdu's ghost gods. When the sun shines, their souls will scatter! Where's the Sun Guardian and Moon Guardian of Xuandu? Why aren't they coming to reinforce us?"
No one could answer him.
Logically speaking, even if Eternal Peace had the huge geographical advantage of Youdu, it was impossible for them to make a comeback. As long as the Xuandu army arrived, they could suppress the ghost gods of Youdu.
Ancestral God King would definitely lead the Xuandu army to reinforce them, but now, the Xuandu army had yet to appear. This made everyone anxious.
No one noticed that the stars in the sky were in disorder and running around randomly. The constellation changed drastically.
This was clearly a sign that Xuandu wasn't peaceful. However, no one had time to head to Xuandu to check what had happened.
"Where I stand is Youdu!"
In the main camp of the celestial heavens, a tender voice suddenly rang out. The main camp of the celestial heavens instantly fell into darkness. In the darkness, two trails of flames rose up like a huge river of lava rising higher.
Qin Fengqing's entire body was covered in blood, and it was obvious that he had suffered extremely severe injuries during the bloody battle with the two guards. However, he still used his remaining magic power to spin the six heavenly wheels. Wherever the power of the heavenly wheels passed by, numerous gods and devils of the celestial heavens would transform into other races, creating chaos.
When the six heavenly wheels spun, paper boats flew out from Youdu and attacked the main camp of the celestial heavens.
Even though more than half of the soldiers of the Dragon and Martial Guards had died, they still followed closely behind and fought non-stop.
Suddenly, the sky lit up, and the stars moved rapidly. As they got closer to Eternal Peace, the stars became bigger and brighter. Finally, the stars broke through the world barrier of the Primordial Realm and transformed into suns that appeared in the sky!
The Youdu that Qin Fengqing had transformed into was like snow meeting a blazing sun, and it quickly dissipated.
The camp of the celestial heavens cheered. "The Xuandu army is here!"
In the sky, the divine sun and the bright moon moved and laid down a formation. Blazing rays of light shot down and sliced towards the main camp of the celestial heavens!
At the same time, an army of hundreds of thousands of gods and devils descended from the sky. From afar, one could see the formation flags fluttering with the word 'river' written on them.
"Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor Jiang Baigui has pacified Xuandu and is here to assist!"
Thunder rumbled in the sky, and it was the army under Jiang Baigui shouting in unison, "Xuandu has changed owners! Fall into Eternal Peace!"
The cheers shook the sky. It was the cheers of the soldiers in the bloody battle of Eternal Peace!
Amidst the cheers, the morale of the various armies of the celestial heavens crumbled, and despair filled the air!
"Your Majesty, retreat!"
Celestial Empress' hair was disheveled, and blood flowed from the corner of her mouth. She broke free from Celestial Venerable Xu and Lan Yutian and rushed into the main camp of the celestial heavens. She shouted, "If we don't retreat now, it will be too late!"
Emperor Hao Tian's cape was spread out as he fought a bloody battle with Qin Mu. His eyes had already turned red from killing. He felt that he only needed one last strike to make Qin Mu fall, but Qin Mu refused to fall no matter what!
"Your Majesty, leave quickly!"
The retreating army of the celestial heavens flooded over like a flood and drowned out Celestial Emperor Hao and Qin Mu. An old minister cried out, "If we don't leave now, we won't be able to leave! All the soldiers will die here!"
In the chaos, Celestial Emperor Hao gritted his teeth and continued to attack Qin Mu frantically. He shouted sternly, "I just need a moment, a moment, and his injuries will explode. He won't have any power! I can still turn the tables!"
He collided with Qin Mu's divine art with unprecedented intensity. Blood spewed out of Emperor Hao Tian's mouth as he flew backward and crashed into the army.
Following which, the senior auxiliary, junior auxiliary, upper guard, and lower guard flew over and carried the heavily injured Celestial Emperor Hao into the army.
Celestial Emperor Hao vomited blood, but his gaze was fixed on Qin Mu, who was getting further away. He seemed to want to see Qin Mu collapse.
Yet Qin Mu stood there without moving or shaking.
"Celestial Venerable Mu, Old Dog Mu, fall down!" Celestial Emperor Hao spat out another mouthful of blood. His voice was filled with despair, and he howled like an injured wolf.
When his line of sight left Qin Mu's body and was blocked by the army, Qin Mu finally collapsed, his injuries completely exploding.
However, Emperor Hao Tian couldn't see this.
