Tales Of Herding Gods | Chapter 1503 - 72 Halls Of The Jade Capital

The moment he entered the city, Qin Mu instantly felt that his lifespan that was originally as long as heaven and earth had come to an end.

Divine arts practitioners who had cultivated to the Life and Death Realm could already feel when their lifespans were running out. However, after cultivating to the god realm, the gods would feel that their lifespans were endless, as long as heaven and earth.

However, this Jade Capital City was probably due to the great calamity of destruction, which caused the Great Dao to have an end to its lifespan. Thus, martial cultivators also had an end to their lifespan.

Qin Mu muttered to himself and executed Overlord Body Three Elixir Technique. His vital qi flowed through the World Tree, and the feeling of having an end to his lifespan immediately vanished.

The World Tree was like an unchanging substance that pierced through the universe. No matter how many universes were destroyed and born, the World Tree never changed. Even though Qin Mu's World Tree was only a sapling and wasn't strong, it still had a trait in this area.

In addition, the aura of the calamity in Jade Capital City wasn't too strong, so he didn't really step into it. Thus, the World Tree in his divine treasures could block it.

Of course, if it was a true great calamity of destruction, the sprout of the World Tree wouldn't be able to withstand it. This sprout was still young.

Qin Mu walked into the city and carefully avoided some dangerous places. The cold wind and the heat wind here were the strangest. The temperature of the heat wind was enough to melt the Dao chains and domains of the Great Dao, while the cold wind froze everything and broke the Dao chains. All divine arts were useless and were extremely dangerous.

"This cold wind is like the ultimate void…"

Qin Mu stood under a withered Dao Tree and observed the cold and lonely wind blowing around the Dao Tree. He was astonished.

The cold wind was somewhat similar to his Great Overarching Heavenly Completion, but it was even more powerful.

He caught up to the tail of the cold wind and carefully followed it. He observed it carefully and tried to figure out the marvel it contained. After an unknown period of time, the cold wind tunneled into a patch of primordial qi.

Qin Mu suddenly raised his head and looked around. Only then did he realize that he had already deviated from Wei Suifeng's geographical map. He didn't know where he had run to.

This place was even more dilapidated. Withered Dao trees were everywhere, and Dao trees formed forests. There were also withered Dao fruits hanging on the trees, and some of them even fell under the trees.

On the ground were withered Dao Tree leaves and branches. When one stepped on them, the branches would break and the leaves would rustle.

He stepped on something hard and pushed aside the dead leaves. Under the leaves was a skeleton.

This should be the skeleton of a person who had achieved the Dao. He didn't know why he had died here.

"In the great calamity of the universe's destruction, those who achieve the Dao are also ants."

Qin Mu looked around and suddenly raised his hand. Withered leaves filled the sky and flew off the ground.

In the withered Dao forest, corpses of those who had achieved the Dao were everywhere. It was a shocking sight!

Qin Mu raised his eyebrows and checked them one by one. After a moment, he let out a shaky breath.

These people who achieved the Dao didn't die naturally, but were killed!

Every skeleton had all kinds of wounds caused by sharp weapons!

"Who killed you?"

He stopped in front of a skeleton and knocked on it, trying to awaken it. The skeleton didn't move, and there was no spirit in it.

He stood up and examined his surroundings with a frown. This withered forest was like a burial mound, burying two to three hundred accomplished Daoists!

"Does the Dao achieving experts in Jade Capital City also have a grudge? Could they be killing each other here?"

He was about to put down the dead leaves and branches when his eyes suddenly lit up. He quickly walked into the forest and saw a deep well in the withered forest. It was originally buried by the dead leaves and branches, but now it was revealed.

Qin Mu came to the side of the well and looked into it. He saw that it was filled with chaos and was immeasurably deep.

"What is this well used for?"

Just as he was thinking about it, he saw the chaos qi in the well churning. Something was crawling out from the well.

He opened up the eye in the heart of his brows and took a closer look. He saw a huge creature climbing up the wall of the well with its four limbs. He looked at it for a moment, and only then did he see that it was a strange creature and not a huge creature like he had imagined.

That strange creature was carrying a Dao Tree on its back, and it was trying its best to climb up the wall of the well, trying to climb out.

However, he was surrounded by the ripples of the great calamity of destruction which struck him down time again. His corporeal body was also obliterated until only his bones were left, but he still continued to crawl out with perseverance.

Qin Mu looked at it for a long time, but that person who had achieved the Dao couldn't crawl out of the well.

Qin Mu pulled out his sword and stabbed over a hundred times around the mouth of the well before floating away.

A few days later, a broken Dao Tree emerged from the well. The Dao practitioners in the well had almost lost their magic power from the destruction of the great calamity, and the Great Dao they had cultivated was also mostly obliterated.

However, the mouth of the well was right in front of him!

This chaos well was the universe he was in. Countless experts had exhausted all their wisdom to gather the chaos qi, opening up a passage that led to the Miluo Palace!

As long as he climbed out, as long as he climbed into the Jade Capital City, he could borrow the power of the master of Miluo Palace to avoid the calamity. In the future, he would have a place in the new universe!

Even if his own cultivation was completely wiped out, even if his corporeal body was completely destroyed, as long as he kept the Dao fruits and the Dao Tree, he could make a comeback!

He climbed up the wall of the well and raised his Dao Tree with all his might, letting it rise up first.

Right at this moment, the sword light at the well's mouth suddenly flashed. That cultivator raised his head and saw that the sword light contained incomparably terrifying power that stabbed into his Dao Tree!

That person who had become a Daoist was already reduced to a skeleton. If it was in the past, he could easily block these sword lights, but now, he could only look on helplessly as the sword lights stabbed into his Dao fruit!

"Who schemed against my Heavenly Lord Fu De?"

He only had time to roar when his Dao Fruit was sliced off by the sword lights. It fell off the Dao Tree and into the chaotic qi in the well before being swallowed by the great calamity.

The Dao fruit was obliterated, and the person who had achieved the Dao lost all his strength. He fell from the wall of the well and fell into the calamity along with the Dao Tree.

'That chaos well is a little strange. The bottom of the well should be connected to the previous universe. Strange, shouldn't that person who had achieved the Dao enter Jade Capital City to avoid the great calamity of destruction? Why did he have to create a well to sneak into Jade Capital City?'

Qin Mu came to the front of a great hall and pondered over it. "The Dao forest outside the well is also filled with some dead Dao achievers. Could they have also secretly crossed over from that well? In that case, who killed them? Could it be the Dao achievers of Jade Capital City?"

He looked at the hall and stopped letting his imagination run wild.

This hall gave him a feeling that it wasn't inferior to the Hall of Fragrance. It should be an extremely important divine hall in Jade Capital City. There was a Dao Tree in front of the divine hall that had been chopped down by someone. There were also traces of battle here.

Based on the traces, there should have been a fierce battle half a year ago that resulted in the Dao Tree being chopped.

He examined them in detail and saw Celestial Venerable Hao's divine art. Other than that, there were also traces of Celestial Venerable Huo, Ancestral God King, and other Celestial Venerables' divine art.

"They came here and encountered a strange incident. They fought with each other and chopped down the other party's Dao Tree."

Qin Mu circled around the Dao Tree and walked into the hall. The interior of the hall was imprinted with different runes and Dao markings, and they were extremely complicated. He checked them one by one and suddenly noticed a few praying mats, as well as the auras of Celestial Venerable Hao, Celestial Venerable Huo, and the rest.

"After they came here, they stopped here to comprehend the Great Dao hidden in this hall."

Qin Mu was astonished. Hao, Huo, Zu, Gong, and the other Celestial Venerables were all highly intelligent people. The reason they had been delayed in Jade Capital City for so long wasn't because they were trapped here, but because they had discovered the secret of Jade Capital City!

They were using their wisdom to comprehend the Great Dao of Jade Capital City to perfect their Jade Capital City!

In the past, Qin Mu had also thought that Jade Capital was the same realm as the Four Heavenly Gates, Jade Pavilion, God Execution Stage, and other realms. It was also a natural Dao land formed by the ancestral court that contained the knowledge of the Great Dao. It could comprehend even more Dao marvels from Jade Capital City, allowing his cultivation to advance by leaps and bounds.

However, now that he knew about the Jade Capital Trap, he no longer thought that way.

This Jade Capital City was a man-made sacred ground created by the master of Miluo Palace and other prehistoric Daoists!

Their goal was to use the gods of the later generations to cultivate and comprehend their Jade Capital City, helping them break free from the disaster as soon as possible!

The stronger the people who cultivated the Jade Capital City, the more stable their Jade Capital City would be. The more likely they would be able to completely escape the calamity of destruction, allowing this resplendent divine city to descend from the destruction of the universe to the ancestral court!

The Jade Capital City hadn't completely descended into the ancestral court yet. The people who had achieved the Dao in the city were either dead or injured. Qin Mu didn't see any living people who had achieved the Dao along the way. At most, they were Dao trees and withered Dao fruits.

However, if one of the ten Celestial Venerables comprehended the Jade Capital and cultivated it to the Dao Realm, the situation would be different.

The Jade Capital City in the god's celestial palace was borrowing power from the true Jade Capital City of the ancestral court!

The cultivation system of the celestial palace focused on power and not on the realm of the path. The root cause of this was probably the Jade Capital City of the ancestral court.

Previously, the Celestial Venerable, Southern Heavenly Gate, Jade Pool, and God Execution Stage were all borrowing power from the celestial heavens. At that time, the disadvantage wasn't huge, and the Jade Capital Realm was borrowing power from the Jade Capital!

Since it was borrowing strength, he would have to pay it back in the future!

After returning the Jade Capital City to the Jade Capital City of the ancestral court as a Daoist, the weakening of a person's abilities was a small matter. The Jade Capital City could become even more stable and possess even stronger power to resist the calamity!

Furthermore, there might even be a prehistoric Daoist that could escape the calamity and enter the present universe from the prehistoric universe!

The actions of the ten Celestial Venerables were like asking a tiger for its skin. They were helping the villain do evil and benefiting others!

Qin Mu pressed down on the hilt of his sword and couldn't resist the urge to pull out his sword to shatter the Dao markings in the hall. However, he forced himself to endure it.

Celestial Venerable Hao and the rest had already come here and comprehended the secrets of the Great Dao contained in this hall. Even if Qin Mu could chop and follow these Dao markings, it wouldn't be of much use.

Furthermore, the Dao markings in this divine hall were indeed exquisite and profound. They contained extremely deep truths and weren't simply borrowing power.

Qin Mu composed himself and sat down. He also quietly comprehended the Dao markings on the shrine and comprehended the marvel within.

He had to comprehend the marvel within. As for cultivating or not cultivating, he could only make a decision after he explored Jade Capital City.

After a moment, Qin Mu entered his dream safely, and dream realms opened up one after another. Countless tiny Qin Mus flew out and wandered around the four walls of the shrine while shouting and calculating the marvel of these runes.

After a dozen days, Qin Mu put away the dream realm and walked out of the hall.

He followed the path that Celestial Venerable Hao and the rest had taken and continued forward. Not long later, he encountered another treasure hall.

"Could there be seventy-two throne halls here?"

Qin Mu's heart trembled. 'If it's the 72 throne halls, doesn't that correspond to the 72 halls of the celestial heavens? In that case, what Celestial Venerable Hao and the rest want to complete isn't the Jade Capital Realm… It's the 36 celestial palaces and 72 throne halls. What they want to complete is the Great Celestial Heavens! This kind of technique was created by Saint Woodcutter, so who guided Celestial Venerable Hao to cultivate like this?'

He had a grim expression. If Celestial Venerable Hao had thought of it himself, Celestial Venerable Hao's wisdom and comprehension would have to be reevaluated!

If Celestial Venerable Hao hadn't comprehended it himself, who had guided him?

'Woodcutter and Junior Brother Jiang Baigui can't possibly guide him. Tai Su doesn't have such wisdom. The person behind Celestial Venerable Hao is definitely not Tai Su, but someone else!'

'The wisdom of this person isn't inferior to that of Teacher Woodcutter. However, in today's world, other than Teacher Woodcutter, there's no other wise person like him. Unless… unless he comes from the previous universe! A person who has transmigrated!'

His expression was grim, and Celestial Venerable Hao's figure appeared in his mind. Behind Celestial Venerable Hao's figure was a huge shadow that shrouded him.

"Tai Su is a little sheep that has fallen into the wolf's mouth. She's dead meat!"
