Tales Of Herding Gods | Chapter 1461 - Doing Evil When Alive, Settling Scores After Dying

The resurrected Heaven Duke moved his body, and the boundless power in his body vanished. What replaced it was his mortal body, which made him slightly uncomfortable.

Furthermore, when Qin Mu and Goddess of Heavenly Yin reconstructed his soul, they also added a divine soul to him, adding another seven spirits.

This divine soul wasn't Celestial Venerable Hong, but a soul forged using the Dao of Heavenly Yin. It was still a blank piece of paper without any consciousness.

In the past, he was an ancient god with three souls and no seven spirits. Now that he had seven spirits, he was curious and wasn't used to them.

In the past, he was a precelestial god, the most powerful ancient god. He was high up in the sky, and even when he split out his incarnation, he would float in the sky and rarely land.

Now that his feet were on the ground and stepping on the soil, the feeling from his feet and toes made him curious. He bent down and stretched out his hand to touch the soil between his toes, placing it under his nose to sniff.

Goddess of Heavenly Yin revealed a look of disdain and didn't hide it.

Not far away, Luo Wushuang looked down and pretended not to see anything. Zhe Huali's eyes almost popped out. Butcher and Heavenly King Tian Shu looked at each other and smiled.

Heaven Duke smiled and stretched out his palm. He carefully examined his five fingers and his palm markings.

Qin Mu hurried him. "Dao brother, Earth Count is still waiting for you."

Only then did Heaven Duke come back to his senses. He bowed to thank the two of them, then to Butcher and the rest.

Butcher asked, "How does it feel to transform Heaven Duke from a saint into a mortal? Do you feel a sense of loss?"

"I feel a sense of loss."

Heaven Duke didn't hide anything and said, "In the past, my power was too strong, and now I only have the power of the heaven soul and earth soul. My corporeal body is no different from a mortal's, so I'm naturally a little disappointed. Tai Yi told me that I would break free from the restraints of the Heavenly Dao. I thought I would transcend and achieve the Dao like him, but I never expected it to be this kind of transcendence."

Butcher said, "In the past, you were high up, but you couldn't reach the Heavenly Dao. Now that you have transformed into a mortal, you have the possibility of transcending."

Heaven Duke smiled. "Maybe."

Heavenly King Tian Shu stood up and said, "Heaven Duke, I'll send you to Youdu to meet Earth Count."

Heaven Duke followed him, and the two of them walked out of Heavenly Yin World. Tian Shu planned to open Gate of Heaven Influence, but Qin Mu followed him and said, "Heavenly King, Youdu wants to kill me, so I can't go to Youdu. Help me take a look at Celestial Venerable You's injuries. I'm going to the ancestral court this time to invite Apothecary to Youdu to treat Celestial Venerable You's injuries. Heavenly King, please receive me."

Tian Shu acknowledged and asked, "Heaven Duke is already dead, and the Heavenly Dao belongs to the ten Celestial Venerables. The ten Celestial Venerables' cultivation has improved greatly, so they will definitely form a huge pressure on Carefree Village. I'm afraid I won't be able to stay in Youdu for long. After receiving Eternal Peace's Apothecary, I will be returning to Carefree Village."

Qin Mu hesitated for a moment and said, "Staying in Carefree Village for a long time isn't a good idea. Just because the ten Celestial Venerables can't invade Carefree Village for the time being doesn't mean they won't attack it in the future. Breaking the Void Bridge isn't difficult for the current ten Celestial Venerables."

"That's why Celestial Venerable Yue followed Founding Emperor to Carefree Village to guard it."

Tian Shu sighed ruefully and said, "They have already planned ahead and made preparations. The Void Bridge is easy to defend but hard to attack. If the ten Celestial Venerables want to conquer that place, it won't be easier than attacking Xuandu."

He brought the revived celestial palace into the Gate of Heaven Influence and vanished.

Qin Mu saw them off and looked at Butcher, Zhe Huali, Luo Wushuang, and the rest who were walking over. He bowed to the three of them and said, "May I trouble everyone to sacrifice their lives to participate in this battle with me? I'm very grateful!"

Zhe Huali and Luo Wushuang hurriedly returned the greeting, and Luo Wushuang said with a serious expression, "There's no need to trouble yourself with the place of morality. Celestial Venerable is already willing to risk his life, so how could we?"

Zhe Huali caressed the demon knife and chuckled. "Dragon Tooth and I can be considered to have gotten used to it. We even killed a Celestial Venerable, so we can finally brag to our descendants in this lifetime!"

The Dragon Tooth Sword was very comfortable. After drinking the blood of an Celestial Venerable, this demon knife was also growing.

Butcher walked forward and said, "You have to be careful. If you want to chop people again, call us."

Qin Mu nodded his head heavily.

The three of them left in huge strides. Zhe Huali turned back and waved his hand. "Remember to call us!"

Qin Mu laughed loudly and sent them off with his gaze. When they had vanished, Qin Mu said, "Let's go."


A cold voice came from his side, but he couldn't see the owner of the voice. He could only see a shadow beside Qin Mu's feet.


Tian Shu sent Heaven Duke to the heart of Earth Count's brows and immediately went to Benevolent Saintly King Equal to Heaven to seek an audience with Celestial Venerable You to check on Celestial Venerable You's injuries.

In the hall on the platform in the heart of Earth Count's brows, Heaven Duke's body was much shorter than Earth Count's primordial spirit. He could only look up at his Dao friend.

"You've transcended and freed yourself. I'm very envious."

Earth Count's expression was calm, but there were flames flickering in his eyes. "You are a living being now. You have three souls, seven spirits, your own thoughts, your own path. Your emotions and actions don't need to be controlled by the Great Dao. I don't know when I can be free like Dao Brother."

Heaven Duke said, "Now, I can feel all kinds of emotions in the human world, and my comprehension of the Heavenly Dao has unknowingly increased by another level. In the past, I was born from the Heavenly Dao and controlled the Heavenly Dao, but I knew how it was like but didn't know why it was like this. Now, it's different. My comprehension is even deeper, one gains and one loses, and I actually have a strange feeling."

Earth Count was delighted. "You are one step away from achieving the path. In that case, Dao Brother should be able to guess my intention of inviting Dao Brother over, right?"

Heaven Duke said with a smile, "Doing evil when he was alive, settling scores after he died, these are the rules of Youdu. Now that Heaven Duke is dead, I have to settle the sins that Heaven Duke had committed when he was alive. Earth Count is impartial, and he invited me here for this."

Earth Count said solemnly, "During the battle in Xuandu, Celestial Venerable Hong killed countless people, and the number of lives he killed was uncountable. The grievances of the dead in Xuandu overflowed into the heavens, and according to Youdu's laws, we should take him down and punish him for his sins. Celestial Venerable Hong is already dead, and even though Celestial Venerable Hong and Dao Brother are one, they are different souls. Therefore, Dao Brother, please come and ask about Celestial Venerable Hong's case…"

Heaven Duke shook his head and said calmly, "Dao friend, you don't have to be biased towards me. I'm me, and Celestial Venerable Hong is also me. There are countless people who died in the battle of Xuandu, so I should be blamed. I'm willing to be punished."

Earth Count hesitated. "You are a living being now, and Youdu rarely punishes living beings…"

Heaven Duke said, "But I have also punished the living before. Let me bear my sins, don't make things difficult for you."

Earth Count nodded his head and summoned a ghost king. "The dead of Xuandu will form boundless karma fire. Dao brother, please go and burn it in the karma fire."

Heaven Duke got up and followed the ghost king.

Earth Count watched him leave. At this moment, Heavenly King Tian Shu walked over and saw Heaven Duke being taken away by the ghost king. He asked in astonishment, "Where is he going?"

"He has found his own path to atone for his sins, which is also to redeem himself."

Earth Count took a look at him and said, "Celestial Venerable Mu opened the Black Heaven Earth Sect in the ancestral court, probably to send someone over to treat Celestial Venerable You. He can't step into Youdu, so I'll send you there to receive him."

Heavenly King Tian Shu stood on his palm, and not long later, he came to the location of Youdu in the ancestral court. He saw a heavenly gate erected there, and Apothecary was standing at the gate, looking around. However, Qin Mu was nowhere to be seen.

"Where's Celestial Venerable Mu?" Tian Shu asked.

"He ran away, leaving this divine art behind."

Apothecary wasn't in a good mood. "The wind is rushing the fire, I don't know what to do!"

He straightened his collar and muttered, "This Youdu is full of ghost aura…"

Tian Shu was bewildered. 'Celestial Venerable Mu just went through the Battle of Xuandu, so where did he run off to?'
