The people of every sect naturally noticed this too. They also cast their gaze; several sect masters including Immortal Tian Ge suddenly showed an astounded expression.
After all, all those who were invited should already be here, so who else would be coming at this moment?
These starlights were extremely fast. Just as Liu Ming and other disciples turned their heads, there were already 3 figures in the air.
At the same time, a suffocating monstrous spiritual pressure swept over from the figure in the middle. Most disciples suffered from a concussion in their Divine Thought; those who were weaker fainted directly.
Although Liu Ming’s mental power far surpassed the same-level cultivator, under this kind of spiritual pressure, he felt dizzy too. He quickly activated the mind imitation insect so that he wasn’t as unbearable as the few people beside him.
Luo Tiancheng’s face also turned slightly pale, but he still stood straight on the spot.
The executive of other sects also lost their composure. This terrifying spiritual pressure was above them.
Immortal Tian Ge’s thoughts moved, and he cast a green light shield to protect the disciples of the Taiqing Sect in it. The powerhouse houses of the other forces also made their moves, trying to reduce the spiritual pressure suffered by their disciples.
Liu Ming felt relieved, and he recovered. He sighed secretly, then he looked at the 3 figures.
The person in front was tall and burly. His whole body seemed to have gleaming stars like the Big Dipper, and a dazzling starlight wrapped him in it, making his face indistinct.
“The Mystic Comprehending State cultivator!” Someone blurted out.
Looking at the tall figure, Liu Ming was equally astonished. From the aura alone, this person seemed a bit more unfathomable than the Southern Puppet Emperor.
But this was not surprising, the Southern Puppet Emperor’s Qing Ling was just a remnant soul, so her strength was still inferior to her heyday.
Beside the burly figure surrounded by stars, there were 2 young cultivators; a man and a woman.
The young man was very tall. He had curly purple hair, short and big nose, big mouth and snowlike eyes.
The female cultivator had silky silver hair, a jadelike face, snowlike skin and a pair of emerald pupils. Her eyes seem to be able to suck the soul of a person. She had a peerless look that could make everyone move. She was smiling faintly.
Liu Ming glanced across the 2 of them.
These 2 were also cultivators of the Crystallization Period, and their cultivation was extremely high, but what he cared about was their costumes.
The big dipper pattern on their robes gave him a very familiar feeling.
Big Dipper Pavilion! After Liu Ming thought about it a few times, he finally remembered something and was shocked in his mind.
“It turns out that the master of the Big Dipper Pavilion is here, this is the pleasure of our Sky Palace!” Just as everyone present was surprised, the voice of the man in a golden robe came again not far away.
“Sure enough, they are from the Big Dipper Pavilion…” Liu Ming looked at Immortal Tian Ge.
Immortal Tian Ge frowned slightly. He seemed to be equally surprised by the arrival of the Mystic Comprehending State master of Big Dipper Pavilion.
The others who heard that also raised a commotion.
“Oh, just the 2 guardians of the mere Sky Palace are not worthy to talk to me. Let your elder in charge talk to me!” The figure in the starlight said unceremoniously.
The man in a golden robe was infuriated, but the woman beside pulled his clothes slightly.
At this moment, a dazzling white light rolled out from the giant island and turned into a huge gray vortex in the void.
At the next moment, the old man in a white robe with white hair walked out of the vortex slowly.
“Old Man Tian He, I didn’t think it was you who is in charge of the secret realm this time.” After the burly figure saw the face of the old man in a white robe, he immediately gave a light “oh“. He also seemed a little surprised.
Another powerhouse of the Mystic Comprehending State appeared. Not only the disciples around were dumbfounded, but Immortal Tian Ge and others were also taken aback.
“Big Dipper Pavilion Master, what are you doing here?” The old man in a white robe clearly knew the person. After his white eyebrows frowned, he said coldly.
This burly figure turned out to be 1 of Middle Sky Continent’s most mysterious Mystic Comprehending State powerhouses, the Big Dipper Pavilion Master.
At this time, not to mention ordinary disciples like Liu Ming, even Immortal Tian Ge and other executives of various sects were astounded.
“Why, is it that I can’t come here?” With the voice of the Big Dipper Pavilion Master, the starlight around him began to disperse. A middle-aged man in an ordinary yellow shirt revealed from it.
“Today is the day when the Tianmen Convention is held. People of all factions have gathered here. If you have nothing important, please leave. I will visit the Big Dipper Pavilion another day.” The old man Tianhe looked solemn and said, arching his hands.
The mysterious organization Sky Palace holds the Tianmen Convention every 800 years. Naturally, it had far-reaching significance and involved a great deal of mystery. They would never want it to be interrupted, otherwise they wouldn’t send a Mystic Comprehending State powerhouse to guard this island.
“I came here for this conference. Both of my disciples are at the Crystallization Period. Let them participate in this conference.” Big Dipper Pavilion laughed, spread his hands and pointed at the 2 people standing beside them.
“What, let your disciple enter the secret realm?” The old man Tianhe’s pupils contracted as if he thought of something. He asked in a cold voice,
“Could it be… that event is about to start again?”
This sentence was a bit inexplicable, but the Big Dipper Pavilion Master seemed to understand the meaning as he nodded and said,
“That’s the case, so I have to use the Tianmen’s secret realm to let my 2 disciples hone their skills, and at the same time increase their luck and chances.”
When Old Man Tian He heard the words, he contemplated on the spot without replying immediately.
The Big Dipper Pavilion Master saw the change in the expression of Old Man Tian He in his eyes, and he said faintly,
“When that event starts, I can give half of the slot to Sky Palace. Just take it as the reward for letting them participate in this Tianmen Convention.”
“Is pavilion master serious about this?” Old Man Tian He was moved to hear this.
“You don’t even believe in my words?” The Big Dipper Pavilion Master raised his eyebrows and said without hesitation.
“Don’t get me wrong, sir. In that case, I’ll let them join the Tianmen Convention.” Old Man Tian He pondered for a while, and he finally nodded reluctantly.
The 2 Mystic Comprehending State powerhouses spoke without deliberately avoiding anyone present. The ordinary disciples below Real Pellet State here were mostly confused when they heard the words, and they looked doubtful.
However, the 4 ancient sects, the 8 great families, the Sky Beastkin Valley and other big forces were already shocked by this. Their faces had become unsightly.
Seeing this scene, no matter how stupid one was, he would understand the words of Old Man Tianhe and the Big Dipper Pavilion Master must have involved an extremely important matter.
For a while, there was a strange atmosphere in the venue.
“Xuanwu, Xuanying, you 2 will deal with the following procedures.” Old Man Tianhe turned around and instructed the Sky Palace’s guardians, then his figure blurred like ripples and disappeared.
The Big Dipper Pavilion Master also spoke to the 2 disciples beside him before leaving in a starlight.
Just when everyone below was digesting the surprising news, the man in a golden robe held a giant golden scroll and spoke faintly,
“Okay, before you enter the secret realm, you need to write your name on this Sky Palace Scroll and leave a drop of blood essence, then you can enter the secret realm one by one. The order of entry is according to the results achieved by each sect at the previous Tianmen Convention.”
As he finished his words, he chanted a few inaudible spells, and with a huff, the golden scroll opened in the direction of the woman in the golden robe beside him.
The woman in a golden robe immediately held the other end of the scroll and pulled it tightly.
When this huge golden scroll unfolded, it was tens of meters long. The gold rim was inscribed with some dense runes that were circulating like they were alive. The middle was blank. On the top right corner, there was a red circle with ‘79’ written inside it.
Liu Ming was moved after seeing the number. Does this mean that this is the 79th Tianmen Conference?
Soon, 2 teams of disciples flew out of the crowd below.
Liu Ming could see from their costumes that they should be the disciples of the Nature Work Sect and the Demon Mystic Sect of the 4 ancient sects.
Speaking of which, during every Tianmen Conference, the top 4 places were naturally won by the 4 ancient sects. The last time Taiqing Sect only got third place, only ahead of Haoran Academy. The Nature Work Sect and the Demon Mystic Sect were top 1 and 2 respectively.
Sure enough, the Nature Work Sect disciples were the first to sign their names and dropped a blood essence on the golden scroll one by one, then they flew into the big gate behind the 2 guardians.
“You all should go now.” When the 10 disciples of Demon Mystic Sect also signed, Immortal Tian Ge waved to Liu Ming and the others, but said somewhat absentmindedly.
After they responded in unison, they flew up to the Sky Palace’s guardians and wrote their names and dropped a blood essence on the golden scroll in turn.
When Liu Ming personally signed his name and forced a drop of blood essence on the scroll, he keenly noticed that there was a trace of inexplicable energy entwining his body. However, he couldn’t detect anything with Divine Thought.
However, compared with the power of the dark curse, this trace of energy gave him a gentle feeling.
Liu Ming was relieved after checking. He made a gesture and flew into the big gate.
