On this day, waves of white lights flickered above the clouds on top of the snow-capped mountains. Suddenly, a 1000 meters long crack was opened in the sky, and a powerful and violent aura surged out from it.
In the next moment, under the eyes of everyone at the foot of the mountain, a magnificent island emerged from the crack and slowly spun in the golden glow.
Liu Ming looked at the island clearly.
The island in the sky was tens of acres, almost covering the entire snow-capped mountains. Looking from a distance, among the clouds and mist on the island, there was faint green and red land. There were all kinds of birds, flowers and spiritual beasts. Houses of different heights were also lined up neatly, resembling a fairyland on earth.
The disciples were here in the Tianmen Convention for the first time, and they were amazed by the miraculous scene of the floating island in the sky.
In front of the crowd, after Immortal Tian Ge and the man in a gray robe checked the number of people, they brought the disciples to fly toward the mountain peak.
When everyone reached the peak, they found that there were already 2 sects arrived before them. Judging from their costumes, they should be Demon Mystic Sect and Sky Beastkin Valley.
The relationship between these 2 major sects and Taiqing Sect was not good, Immortal Tian Ge didn’t bother speaking with their masters. He just brought his disciples and stood far away from them.
After about 10 minutes, people from various sects also reached the top one after another. There were nearly a thousand people gathered densely.
Standing in the most conspicuous place were naturally the 4 ancient sects, the 8 great families, Sky Beastkin Valley, etc.
Some other small and medium sects could only stand far behind, appearing distinct.
Liu Ming, Luo Tiancheng and other disciples who participated in the Tianmen Convention all put on green robes representing the Taiqing Sect and waited silently.
Observing this magnificent island up close, all the scenery became bigger and clearer; people were more amazed by it.
After Liu Ming watched for a while, he retracted his gaze.
Speaking of it, he had been cultivating in the secret room most of the time, so he didn’t have the time to take a look at his opponents.
The disciples of the Demon Mystic Sect were all men. They dressed in black robes. Even their faces were hidden in the hood, looking secretive and gloomy.
Most of the people in Haoran Academy were dressed in scholar robes. They look upright which was the complete opposite of the Demon Mystic Sect.
Most of the Nature Work Sect’s disciples wore yellow shirts with open arms which looked simple, but most of their waists were full of skin bags that were obviously filled with puppets.
As for the 8 great families and the Sky Beastkin Valley, they also had different costumes. The reason was that it could make a clear distinction between disciples of different forces. None of the costumes looked similar.
Liu Ming looked around at the eye-catching disciples of various factions. After all, all the disciples who could participate in this convention were the most outstanding disciples of the younger generation of all factions so that they could get more benefits.
He still vividly remembered the battle with Wen Zeng. In this adventure to the secret realm, he might face a lot of cultivators who had strength that surpassed their peers, so he must be more careful.
Suddenly, he stared at the woman in purple clothes on the side of the Ouyang Family.
It was Ouyang Qian.
Compared with the exchange meeting, the woman had restored her original face; she didn’t seem to be much different from the time when she was in the illusory palace.
However, this female cultivator had made rapid progress which was almost on par with him. Judging from the power she displayed in the exchange meeting, he had to be wary of her.
As if noticing Liu Ming’s gaze, Ouyang Qian suddenly turned and looked over.
Seeing this, Liu Ming was slightly startled. He didn’t expect this woman to be so keen that she was able to detect his gaze among nearly a thousand people.
As their eyes met, Liu Ming nodded in a distant way, and he quickly looked away.
After Ouyang Qian saw Liu Ming, her eyes lighted slightly, but a smile appeared on her face.
As for the disciples of other sects, Peng Yue, who once met Liu Ming, of the Nature Work Sect, and Xue Pan of the Sky Beastkin Valley, were also among them.
Just as he thought to himself, 2 escape lights flew out from the island. In a flash, they landed in front of the sects.
The light faded, revealing a man and a woman. They both dressed in golden robes with fluttering skirts as if they were immortal beings. They wore a bronze mask which covered their faces completely.
When the people of the major sects saw the 2 flying over, they set their gazes on them.
“Thank you to everyone who is willing to participate in this convention on behalf of the Sky Palace.” Under the gaze of many eyes, the man in a golden robe took a step forward and cupped his fist while glancing around.
The man in a golden robe just glanced over, but he made Liu Ming among the crowd feel a slight tingling on his face.
“2 Celestial State powerhouses…” Liu Ming was astounded. Although these 2 people of the Sky Palace did not deliberately channel their spiritual power, their aura could still be on par with Immortal Tian Ge and other major sects’ masters.
Liu Ming saw a little golden light flashing in the man in the robe. Obviously, he must have cultivated some kind of eye technique, otherwise even the Celestial State powerhouse would not be able to cause such a strange feeling with a glance.
“This Tianmen Convention will be hosted by us. Although all of you participating in the Tianmen Convention should already know the rules of the convention, according to the regulations, I still have to repeat them.”
A calm voice of the man in the golden robe came from behind the mask.
However, no one dared to interrupt the man in a golden robe.
“All the disciples who enter the Sky Palace’s secret realm will receive a luck lock before entering. The conventions of the past have always competed for luck in the secret realm. No matter what method is used, as long as you smash the other’s luck lock or obtain some treasures in the secret realm, there will be a corresponding share of luck that will be absorbed by the luck lock. Those who can be the top 3, the Sky Palace will meet 1 arbitrary request within a limited range
Hearing this, many disciples participating in the conference suddenly had a commotion, and their eyes flashed with excitement.
Liu Ming lowered his eyes; there weren’t any changes in his expression.
“Quiet!” The high level of each sect glanced at the young disciple coldly.
“I have to remind you of some specific details. As long as the luck lock of any disciple is destroyed, although it will be recreated soon, half of the luck they obtained will be looted. 1 person can only obtain luck from the same person 3 times. Even if you repeat it many times later, you will gain nothing. However, when a person’s luck lock is destroyed more than 10 times, the luck lock will not be recreated and he will lose the qualification to stay in the secret realm. When one meets a powerhouse and crushes his own soul lock, he will lose the qualification and be teleported out of the secret realm too.” The man in a golden robe waited for the atmosphere to settle for a while, then he continued to speak.
When Liu Ming heard this, he finally got a more detailed understanding of the Tianmen Convention’s secret realm. Although on the surface, this trial used a relatively mild method to prevent disciples from various factions from killing everyone, the real situation was obviously not like this.
“Okay, now I will open the entrance of the secret realm.” After the man in a golden robe finished speaking, he cast a disc-shaped spiritual weapon with dense inscriptions. The man held it with 1 hand and projected a white beam toward the island.
The woman in a golden robe who had been silent also held the identical disc-shaped spiritual weapon and shot out black light beam.
The black and white light beams combined into a black-white intertwined light beam, and it formed a giant black-white light cluster on the air of the giant island.
At this moment, they launched golden runes at the light cluster with the other hand.
In this way, after about the time of an incense, the giant light cluster suddenly shined with a loud sound, then it gradually transformed into a five-color giant light gate.
The man in the bronze mask showed a hint of caution in his eyes. He took out a five-color rune talisman and started chanting, then he threw and stuck the rune talisman on the light gate.
There was a loud bang!
The 2 huge colorless doors slowly opened from the inside out. A dazzling five-color ray burst out from it, making thousands of people present to close their eyes.
After the light faded, the crystal clear world was revealed inside the light gate.
Seeing this, everyone hurriedly released the mental power, trying to probe, only to find that their mental power was canceled by the gate.
Seeing that mental power was ineffective, Liu Ming immediately used his eyes to look. However, he had to give up as he saw nothing.
The several Taiqing Sect disciples standing near him also showed disappointment on their faces; they probably did the same thing as him.
The man in a golden robe breathed a sigh of relief, put the disc in his hand away, and turned around to speak, but he suddenly gave a surprised sound.
In the horizon, a few twinkling starlights suddenly appeared, dashing here quickly.
TL: The man actually was surprised by the approaching people, who are they? According to the rule, will they have to fight with the people of their own sect in the end?
