The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 4
Chapter 4: Space-Time Gyroscope
Black lines emerged from the coffin person’s forehead upon hearing Fang Lin’s cheeky comment. “You want to be handsome? Just manipulate your skin and bones to look better”.
“But I want it to be natural…..” Fang Lin believed in the principle that people must live life with no masks. Everyone must always be true to themselves.
“Then do not be disappointed on how you look!” The coffin person sighed, clearly incensed with what Fang Lin said.
He then smiled as he caressed his forehead. He can clearly feel his strength trickling a little with the unlocking of the first petal. He cheerfully said, “With the first petal unlocked, I managed to remember my name. Its Wang Hao! Remember it well”.
Fang Lin frowned thinking to himself “The hell, his name sound like its been mixed together, just like mine.” He then looked to Wang Hao expectantly and asked, ” So what am I gonna do now master?”
Wang Hao replied “Well you need to hone your fighting skills and I need to regain my abilities. Let’s have a training program. But the author will not elaborate this training arc because its really boring.”
One month later.
“Haha would you look at that! All the first stage beasts near here has been wiped out by you. I still could not believe you can fight that well considering you shit yourself when you arrived here 6 years ago.” Wang Hao sighed nostalgically as he remembered the young Fang Lin’ snot covered face rushing desparately towards his coffin.
“Ah those were the days….”
“Forget about that master.” Fang Lin had buried his shameful newbie life in the Mystical Forest already. He swore to himself that he must get stronger starting today.
“Anyway, why did you not give me any martial skills? I am you discipleyou know.”
Martial skills are skills that primarily rely on a set of body movements that can give rise to explosive power.
“If you taught me one, I could have cleared this area in half a month.”
“It is because I need you to be conditioned first before learning a martial art. Now that you have fought enough, I reckon I can give you one right now.” Wang Hao reached in front of him and suddenly, a rip appeared in front of him. Wang Hao nonchalantly put his hand inside it and pulled out an old looking book. Fang Lin looked at it with his mouth open.
“Wow master, so this is the space pocket you were talking about. You said its from one of the Universe Artifacts?
“Yes, ranked 3rd from the Universe Artifacts, the Space-Time Gyroscope. It allows me perfect control of space-time continuum. At my peak I can create black holes and revert a persons’s cultivation back to mortality! But because of this damned seal, I can only use the space pocket function right now and only for low quality and size objects. I could not even take out precious cultivation materials to help you now.”
“Is that seal from one of the Universe Artifacts?”
“Yes, yes, ranked 2nd, The All-Encompassing Seal. It is said that it can seal anything, even living beings. I barely managed to get fully sealed with the help of my gyroscope. Even with that, I’ve been reduced to this state.” Wang Hao then waved his hands and said ,”Stop talking about these damned artifacts and study this martial technique.”
He then handed Fang Lin the book. Fang Lin read the title that said ‘Twelve Essences Martial Arts’.
As he read the book, the more astonished Fang Lin became. This book stated that this martial art can be practiced by anyone at any stage. This means this martial art can be usable even for 6th stage or higher practitioners.
The martial art was all about creating the essence of twelve beasts from his own comprehension. The base form of these beasts must be the Rat, Ox, Dog, Monkey, Rooster, Horse, Snake, Pig, Rabbit, Sheep, Tiger and Dragon. One can use a stronger animal as long as it shares a similarity with any of the base form.
For example, you can cultivate the essence of the Phoenix with the Rooster as the base form. As long as they were similar to each other, there will be no problem.
These essences are highly useful in combat for it will give a practitioner additional abilities. If a practitioner has produced a phoenix essence, he can have higher resistance to flames and faster healing rate. These essences can also be easily produced at any stage.
The difficulty of the martial art however lies in that only those who achieved Perfect Body Refinement Stage can practice it. The martial art requires the practitioner to have a perfect control to his body. Even though higher stages can do the same feat, the martial art can only be learned with the Perfect Body as the foundation.
The second difficulty was that in order to practice the martial art, the cultivator must study the beast and be the beast itself. You can only produce the phoenix essence if you become the phoenix itself. Doing something like this is nearly impossible.
Having tenacious mentality and monstrous perception is needed to succeed the martial art. Even Wang Hao believed Fang Lin will not be able to complete this martial art.
“That martial art should take some of your time now. Once I am satisfied with your progress, we are going to find a way to leave this Mystical Forest.”
“Leave the Mystical Forest? But I heard the exit pathways were guarded by the Six Overlord Beasts.”
“Overlord Beasts? What are they?” Because he was brought to the Mystical Forests on some unknown way, Wang Hao had no idea about the power structures in the Mystical Forest.
“They are Fifth Stage beasts who acts as the boss of the Mystical Forest.” Fang Lin said with a solemn respect on his voice. It was obvious that they managed to inspire some awe on Fang Lin.
“All of them were powerful, since they all reached the peak of Mana Domain Stage. It is said they can break through to Demigod stage but none of them dare so because they want to stay here.”
“Then that means that as of now, we do not have the chance to escape the forest” Wang Hao knew he can leave the forest with his skills, but he cannot just leave Fang Lin behind. But he knew he do not need to worry since something good will happen. Wang Hao cupped his chin and said, “But I am sure a chance to leave will come soon”.
“What do you mean Master?”
“Don’t you know that at times like this an outsider party will encounter us? We just need to impress them and we’re good to go.”
“That’s just on the novels MASTER.”
“Achoo!”. Near the boundary of the Mystical Fores, a teenage girl inside a merchant carriage sneezed. They girl tilted her head as she said to herself,
“I feel like something bad is going happen on this trip.”
She then looked at her father was in front of her. She knew about her father’s power, so she felt assured and safe. But she still could not erase the foreboding that he had now.
“Father, do we really need to venture here? We got all the herbs needed for Mother’s medicine except for one. I know that herb is near the Mystical Forest but what if the Overlord Beasts’ mood were bad today?”
Her Father, a prim moustached man replied ” As long as we did not do anything to offend them, everything will be fine.”
Suddenly, large roars shook the carriage.
“Damn you humans! You killed all my First Stage younglings in just a month and now you want to get something in MY FOREST? Die!!!!!!”
