The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 168
Chapter 168: Mountain
Wang Hao felt himself being carried away by a powerful force. Wang Hao then realized from the fluctuations that he was being whisked away to a hidden realm.
“Another hidden realm huh.” Wang Hao of course knew that this was acceptable since finding the Yama Successor must be a great focus for the Underworld itself. Using precious resources for events like this is a must.
He looked at his three followers who wore different expressions on the trip. Roxy looks flushed and excited while the armored man looked nervous and scared. As for Old Billy, Wang Hao could not see any strong emotions on his face. Old Billy just sat there with his eyes closed, seemingly contemplating on something.
Wang Hao then ignored them as he used the energy he had to probe the environment. Even though he lost his ‘body’, Wang Hao still retained all his abilities as a Godly Divine Beast, including all the energy that he had absorbed.
To his dismay however, his probing energy could only extend three meters away from him. The energy seemed to be blocked by something that prevents it to extend beyond three meters. When he made the energy strike everywhere around him, he discovered that this blockage surrounded him and his followers like a dome.
“Che!” Wang Hao knew that he had no way now to observe, so he decided to just wait for his arrival to the area.
10 minutes later, and Wang Hao felt the fluctuations of space suddenly changing. He stood up, reminding his followers that they have now arrived. Roxy and others just barely managed to stand up when their scenery changed.
Right now, Wang Hao could see that he was in a wide open space. The floor was covered with square, white tiles that seemed to span the entirety of the area.
The whole area seemed to be empty, only consisting of white tiles that stretched on forever. The only prominent structure was a large mountain-like structure. The mountain was not that tall, only reaching around 144 meters in height.
This mountain like structure stood loftily with twelve chairs situated at its peak. Upon seeing this, Wang Hao realized this mountain will be the site of the trial.
As he observed the structure more, he saw more interesting information. The mountain itself seemed to look like a normal mountain, but he could sense something unfathomable within it. He could also see that the mountain seemed to have walls spanning across it.
These walls ran like straight lines starting from the mountain’s peak and ending at itsd base. There are four of these walls, which effectively divided the mountain into four areas.
Wang Hao could not discern more information after that.
Once he realized this, he decided to wait for the other participants to arrive. Minutes passed by, and bright lights appeared in the area. It did not take that long before the 144 participants appeared in the area.
All of them had domineering auras on their bodies. Not only that, but Wang Hao could see that each one of them were stacked to the brim with powerful equipment. Even their followers wore this equipment too.
“Why do I feel like we were about to get wrecked here.” Wang Hao complained in a low voice. “Look at what they are wearing! In our team, only this armored man has an equipment that can stand up to them!” Wang Hao looked frustrated as he stared at Roxy’s attire and Old Billy’s ragged clothes.
“Hehe.” Roxy once again just giggled after seeing Wang Hao’s desperate expression. She did not seem to be worried as she said,
“Do not panic Master Wang Hao. Wearing those things will only give them a slight advantage over us. What was more important was our fighting abilities.”
“Can you fight though?” Wang Hao felt that it maybe rude asking this question, but he had to make sure on the capabilities of his followers. He had to know their capabilities to help him on his strategies.
“Do not worry Master, I can fend for myself!” Roxy flexed her slender arms while saying this. Wang Hao then stared at Old Billy who replied,
“I may be like this, but I was originally a martial artist in my past life. Combat is my life.”
Wang Hao then ignored the armored man, since it was obvious that he can fight.
While Wang Hao was busy interviewing his followers, he suddenly felt a malicious pair of eyes staring right at him. He looked at where it came from, and he saw Siwang Wangzi looking at him with killing intent.
It was quite obvious that Siwang Wangzi will be out for Wang Hao’s blood(if souls have any) later.
Wang Hao just did a slitting motion on his throat, indicating that it was Siwang Wangzi who must be wary.
Aside from Siwang Wangzi, almost all the participants in the trial were busy staring at Wang Hao too. The reason why was because out of all them, it was Wang Hao who was obviously the newcomer. Nobody had even heard of him prior to his acceptance into the trial.
What was more astonishing was that he managed to clinch the No. 3 spot, even higher than Siwang Wangzi.
This was an obvious tell that Wang Hao must be a powerful talent. Of course, they want to know what made Wang Hao eligible for the spot.
Upon seeing their curious looks, Wang Hao decided to indulge them a little.
“You know Roxy, if it were not for your help, I may not be able register as a citizen on time.” Wang Hao adopted a pleased expression on his face as he ‘thanked’ Roxy. “And that box was quite good, discovering my High Grade Divine Beast Bloodline! Really impressive!”
He purposely raised his voice a little, making other participants hear it.
Once they heard about his bloodline, the other participants seem to begrudgingly accept Wang Hao’s status. Siwang Wangzi might have the Yama Bloodline, but it was around 50% purity only. That was only comparable to that of a Middle Grade Divine Beast Bloodline. Only at around 100% purity that it can be considered to be comparable to a High Grade Divine Beast Bloodline.
Wang Hao being placed higher than Siwang Wangzi was quite acceptable. Huo Huangdi at No. 2 had no doubts, since he had a Godly Divine Beast Bloodline. As for Jieshu, she was a former Ninth Stage Powerhouse. Her being at No. 1 was already set in stone.
Siwang Wangzi had an ugly look on his face upon the discovery of Wang Hao’s bloodline. He clenched his fists as his desire to kill him just intensified!
It was just not him. Around half of the participants cast greedy looks towards Wang Hao, clearly interesting on offing him. As for the other participants, they did not care, busy on their preparations.
As for Huo Huangdi, he stared at Wang Hao intently, as if he was trying to see something in Wang Hao that others cannot see. Only when he retracted that glare that Wang Hao could sigh in relief.
As for Jieshu, she had her eyes closed the whole time, clearly ignoring everything happening right now. She exuded a bleak aura that made others instinctively get farther away from her. Nobody was in the area 10 meters around her, creating an empty space that even Wang Hao would not dare to approach.
As for Wang Hao, he decided to ignore the greedy gazes cast on him as he waited for what will happen next.
After some minutes of waiting, he felt a divine sense intruding his mind, showing him the instructions for the first part of the trial.
Upon receiving this, Wang Hao does not know whether he should laugh or cry. He could only complain in his mind,
“What b****hit rules are these! Even an idiot could tell these rules are dumb as f**k!”
