After Liu Ming took over the talisman and the jade pendant, he examined them carefully.
This inch-sized jade pendant was extremely crystal clear. It was glimmering with faint light, with a faint glimmer of light. There were faint traces of snow-white crystals circulating in the jade pendant, which was quite mysterious.
He immediately poured a little spiritual power into it, but strands of tiny crystal silks that were indistinguishable to the naked eye floated out from the surface of the jade pendant.
At the same time, the jade pendant slowly faded away.
When Liu Ming was about to stop the spiritual power, these crystal silks flew back silently, and the jade pendant recondensed in the blink of an eye.
At this time, everyone present also examined it, and most of them looked surprised.
“When I forge this jade pendant, I also injected another special enchantment in it. After activated for a period of time, if it can’t sense beastkin aura, then it will recondense back into the jade pendant.” The cultivator surnamed Sun explained.
“Mr. Sun is really proficient in enchantment, then I can rest assured. In addition, I’m worried that the beastkins will send someone to guard the entrance of the ruin. When you use your clones to set up the formation, you should be careful.” After putting away the items, he reminded.
“Don’t worry, even though I’m injured and I may not be stronger than the 2 Real Pellet State cultivators, it shouldn’t be a problem to set the enchantment secretly. If there are no further questions, you should get back and take a good rest. We will gather here tomorrow morning, then we will set off to the place of competition. During the match, please go all out, lest the opponents notice our plan.” The cultivator surnamed Sun said confidently.
After the young woman and the others asked with their own concerns, they left one by one.
Liu Ming also returned to the temporary cave house on his own.
In the following time, Liu Ming carefully checked the jade pendant given by the cultivator surnamed Sun. After confirming that what he said was true, he carefully hid it in his clothes and meditated.
A night had passed.
In the next morning, when Liu Ming came to the temporary gathering place, a huge light blue flying car had stopped on the snow land.
The cultivator surnamed Sun was talking to the old man surnamed Huang. Judging from the number of people, the rest had already arrived.
Seeing Liu Ming coming, the young man surnamed Li nodded to Liu Ming, and Wu Hong, the young woman in the blue shirt, also smiled at him.
Liu Ming greeted back at them one by one.
After everyone got into the flying car, the surname Sun just shot a blue light at the flying car.
With a rumbling sound, the entire giant flying car turned into a long rainbow, flew forward, and gradually disappeared at the end of the vast white snow.
The flying car was obviously not common. It was even faster than Liu Ming’s Daiyue Jade Boat.
After flying for only about a quarter of an hour, everyone appeared on an open ground below another giant snow mountain which was only on the edge of the snow land.
“In order to prevent the 2 sides from taking advantage of the opportunity to go into ruin, me and the leader of the beastkin cultivators decided to hold the competition here. This place was thousands of miles away from the ruin, but if something happens, we will be able to reach in just a while. Removing the enchantment of the ruin takes at least a day, so don’t worry. I have received news that the beastkin cultivators are almost all here. Only 4 Crystallization Period cultivators are left around the ruin. This is exactly what I predicted before.” The cultivator surnamed Sun whispered to everyone.
When everyone heard it, a look of joy appeared on their faces.
“Haha, Mr. Sun still has time to be happy. Could it be that your injury has healed and you are confident in this fight?”
A low and deep voice came from the distant horizon.
Everyone was startled, and they all looked at the place where the voice came from.
In the sky a few miles away, 2 clouds were coming quickly at an extremely fast speed.
Immediately afterward, more than 10 escape lights landed on the open space hundreds of meters away.
In the gray cloud, a black muscular man wearing a fur coat could be vaguely seen, and a gloomy low laugh came from another vague black cloud.
While the cultivator surnamed Sun and others were assessing them, the 2 clouds quickly dissipated. The 2 beastkin cultivators could clearly be seen.
The beastkin on the left was 9 meters tall, dark-skinned, had a tiger back and bear waist, was covered with thick brown hair and wore a fur coat. He looked just like a big brown bear. He should be the Real Pellet State leader of the Savage Bear Race.
The beastkin on the right was tall and thin with a gloomy face. His eyes were as sharp as lightning. Matching with the hooked nose that didn’t fit his face, it gave people an uneasy feeling. He should be the Real Pellet State powerhouse of the Fissure Eagle Race.
The more than a dozen people who followed behind also removed their beastkin aura at the moment, and they vaguely divided into 2 groups, which were the Fissure Eagle Race and Savage Bear Race. They were looking at the human with a hostile gaze.
When Liu Ming looked at the 2 beastkin leaders, his pupil shrank. Their thick beastkin aura was no less than Ji Ying and Hu Zhang.
At this moment, the hooked nose man from Fissure Eagle Race seemed to sense Liu Ming’s gaze, and he turned around with golden lightning flashing in his eyes.
Liu Ming suddenly felt a stinging pain in his eyes as if being scorched by fire.
He hurriedly channeled spiritual power. A black light flashed in his eyes, then the stinging pain only slowly subsided.
The hooked nose man was slightly surprised, and the golden light gradually faded in his eyes.
At this moment, the muscular man who was black and strong like a brown bear stepped forward and said in a loud voice,
“Since you are all here, don’t waste the time. Let’s get started! 7 1vs1 matches. Let the god decide our life and death!”
The man surnamed Sun glanced at the beastkins, nodded, and replied loudly,
“Okay, just as Mr. Xioong said. There is really nothing to say between us. Let’s start now!”
After he spoke, a black beastkin wind rose from behind the black muscular man. A man with a scarred face was standing in the middle.
“I’m Savage Bear Race’s Xiong Wu. Who is the first to die first!” The man with a scarred face laughed wildly and shouted unscrupulously.
The human race cultivators were naturally agitated by his words. A man in a red robe turned into a fireball and shot out.
The man surnamed Sun frowned slightly, but he didn’t stop it.
Liu Ming glanced at the back of the man in a red robe. This man was Shen Wanqing, a disciple of the Shen Family, 1 of the 8 great families. Judging from this situation, he was cultivating fire element techniques.
Both sides were at the Pseudo Pellet State and had deep spiritual power. Beastkin Clan’s man with a scarred face seemed to be a little stronger, but since Shen Wanqing dared to fight, he should have a plan for it.
Although the Savage Bear Race Xiong Wu shouted loudly at first, when his opponent appeared, he did not act rashly. He just squinted and assessed his opponent.
Shen Wanqing snorted coldly when he saw that the other party didn’t do anything. As he made gestures with both hands, a dazzling fire suddenly appeared on his red robe. “Whoosh“, a fire snake came out from his right sleeve and wrapped around him. It hissed at the man with a scarred face on the opposite side.
The fire snake looked quite spiritual. It spouted flames from time to time.
“Eh, this is a spirit devouring fire snake. I didn’t expect someone in Middle Sky Continent can control this kind of spiritual beast.” Golden light flashed in the eyes of the hooked-nosed man as he glanced at the fire snake, then he murmured.
“Spirit devouring fire snake? I’ve never heard of this name. Is this beastkin very powerful?” the muscular man asked anxiously after hearing the words.
The man with a scarred face was his clan member, and this was the first battle, so he attached great importance to it. After all, losing this would be a big blow to morale.
“This spirit devouring fire snake is a mutated spiritual beast that lives in volcanic magma. After birth, it feeds on fire and is born with the ability to control fire. The beastkin fire produced in its body is even more powerful than the Real Pellet State cultivator’s pill fire. But Brother Xiong doesn’t have to worry. This fire snake is still low in cultivation. If it is transformed from a snake into a dragon, it will be a little troublesome for even you and me to deal with. Now, hehe, it’s not a cause for concern. “The hooked nose man said lightly.
The black muscular man’s face changed slightly at first, then he breathed a sigh of relief in the end.
Liu Ming, who was on the opposite, moved his ears.
Although their conversation was in a low voice and they used beastkin power to isolate the voice, Liu Ming’s Divine Thought, after eating the True Soul Fruit, could listen to most of the conversation.
He immediately squinted and looked at the fire snake.
He had also heard a little about the Shen Family, 1 of the 8 great families in the Middle Sky Continent that was well known for its fire mystic arts, but he had never been able to see it in person.
It was said that the Ablaze Hill where the Shen Family was located was built in the Red Flame Mountain Range, which was as famous as the Green Smoke Sea. The volcanoes were countless in this area. Every day there would be a few volcanoes erupting. The magma that could melt the superb spiritual weapon could stop anyone who was below the Crystallization Period.
In the Red Flame Mountain Range, the fire attribute energy was naturally very abundant, so that many fire attribute strange beasts that had long been extinct in other places had appeared in it. Every direct disciple of the Shen Family must find a spiritual beast and raise it to adulthood before he could be recognized by the family.
It seemed that this spirit devouring fire snake was Shen Wanqing’s spiritual beast.
“Your fire snake doesn’t look ordinary.” The beastkin cultivator with a scarred face glanced at the fire snake on the young man in red robe and said in a deep voice.
“Hmph, if you are afraid of death, kowtow immediately and admit defeat, I will consider letting you go.” Shen Wanqing said with a strange laugh.
“Just these words, I, Xiong Wu, will crush you to ashes today!” The beastkin cultivator with a scarred face grinned, made a gesture and chanted.
The black beastkin aura surged and turned into black tentacles that waved wildly.
