Tales Of Herding Gods | Chapter 1737 - The Upheaval Of The Ancestral Court

Celestial Empress looked at the army of the celestial heavens. They were getting closer to the ancestral court, but there were only over 700,000 people left in the army. In Celestial Emperor's carriage, Celestial Emperor Hao sat there with a cold expression. He looked withered and lifeless, as if he was already dead.

Emperor Hao Tian felt even worse than dying.

As they escaped, they were hunted down time again. The army of Eternal Peace and the myriad worlds increased in number. After leaving the Primordial Realm, when they reached the place where Light Emperor had died in battle, the army of the celestial heavens was about the same as the army of Eternal Peace.

The place where Light Emperor had died in battle was originally the battlefield at the end of the Crimson Light Era. After Crimson Emperor had revived, he had rushed here before the celestial heavens, and there, he had started a huge battle with the remaining survivors of the celestial heavens.

The previous battle in the Blood Rust Zone had already caused the remaining survivors of the celestial heavens to suffer heavy casualties. When they reached the place where Light Emperor had died in battle, even Celestial Venerable Yue, Lang Wo, Celestial Venerable You, Xu Shenghua, Gongsun Yan, and the rest had participated in the battle. After the fierce battle, Jiang Baigui purposely let out a path of survival, allowing the remnants of the celestial heavens to break out of the siege.

Ever since that battle, the momentum of the celestial heavens had been declining day by day. Celestial Venerable You would sneak in from time to time from the Life and Death Divine Treasures of the gods and devils of the celestial heavens to steal their souls, causing the soldiers of the celestial heavens to die mysteriously.

The rebellion of the soldiers of the celestial heavens happened on the night that Emperor Hao Tian ordered all of his soldiers to cripple the Life and Death Divine Treasure.

After this order was passed down, the soldiers of the celestial heavens were dissatisfied. By crippling the Life and Death Divine Treasure, the lifespan of the gods and devils would no longer be the same as heaven and earth. Instead, everyone's lifespan would have an end.

The celestial heavens had suffered defeat time again. If the celestial heavens had the four great heavenly teachers, they could still raise the morale and reorganize their forces. However, only Shang Ping was left in Southern Heaven, and the other heavenly teachers were either dead or betrayed.

The soldiers of the celestial heavens rebelled and were suppressed by Celestial Emperor Hao. However, more than half of them escaped into the starry sky at night.

From then on, a portion of the soldiers of the celestial heavens would flee every day. When they got close to the ancestral court, only these seven hundred thousand gods and devils were left.

"Emperor Hao Tian has suffered a crushing defeat."

Celestial Empress' gaze flickered, and she thought to herself, 'His Dao heart is already finished. Even if he returns to the ancestral court, it's impossible for him to regroup. The various races rebelled, and the number of soldiers decreased day by day. The celestial heavens couldn't develop in the ancestral court at all. Celestial Venerable Mu completely defeated him in this battle! Should I replace him…'

She then shook her head. Now that Eternal Peace had the advantage of time, place, and people, the thousands of worlds in the heavens had rebelled, and the territory of the celestial heavens was shrinking rapidly, it was still unknown if the ancestral court could survive.

Now that he had seized power and claimed the throne, he was just asking for trouble!

Whoever was Celestial Emperor would die more miserably!

"Besides, it's time for me to plan for my future."

Celestial Empress thought to herself, 'The power of the celestial heavens is gone, and my position will definitely become like a bubble in a dream. Now that I've betrayed the celestial heavens and joined Celestial Venerable Mu, I can still be a loyal and righteous person that has forsaken the darkness and turned to the light. I can still act high and mighty, and I'll still be one of the ten Celestial Venerables. If I'm a step late, I'll be a loser that has surrendered and can only be a prisoner…'

Power was a commodity that could be traded, changing dynasties. What couldn't be changed were the people and powers in the center of power. Since ancient times, this was how games were played.

Celestial Empress had seen too much.

Just as she thought that, the Numinous Sky Hall behind Emperor Hao Tian's head suddenly trembled. The red rope knot automatically opened up, and waves of surging Dao might surged out and filled Emperor Hao Tian's body in an instant.

Celestial Empress' heart jumped, and she hurriedly dispelled her thoughts.

"All troops, prepare to enter the ancestral court!"

Emperor Hao Tian stood up, and his previous depression was swept away. He shouted loudly, "The ancestral court is our hometown, our place to make a comeback! We haven't lost this battle!"

Even though he spoke impassionedly, there were only a few who responded. The hundreds of thousands of soldiers of the celestial heavens walked stiffly through the starry sky like zombies.

Celestial Emperor Hao turned around and said happily to Celestial Empress, "Mother Empress, Third Young Master has broken out of the restriction, the outcome is set! After we reach the ancestral court, everything will be our training, and it will only make us stronger!"

Celestial Empress smiled silently.

Finally, the remnants of the celestial heavens' army entered the ancestral court. In front of them, the grand celestial heavens could be seen.

The celestial heavens was a supreme divine weapon formed by the fusion of countless divine weapons and heavy weapons. It was also the strongest fortress in the world and their last hope.

As long as they entered the celestial heavens and sealed the world barrier of the ancestral court, the allied forces of Eternal Peace and the thousands of worlds in the heavens would suffer countless casualties!

Furthermore, the ancestral court was incomparably fertile. If they occupied this place, they would be invincible!

Eternal Peace, a barren land, could develop to its current scale in two hundred years and almost unify the Primordial Realm. The current celestial heavens was countless times better than Eternal Peace back then. In time, the celestial heavens could also become incomparably powerful!

However, the joy on the faces of Celestial Emperor Hao and the soldiers of the celestial heavens froze. They stood in the sky in a daze.

In front of them, on top of the celestial heavens, five Dao trees hung high up in the north, south, east, west, and center five poles of the celestial heavens. They were the Dao trees of the five people who had achieved the Dao, and they were filled with a strong Dao might.

In the celestial heavens, the gods that were comparable to Celestial Venerables had different appearances, and their divine might filled the celestial heavens.

Below, in the ancestral court, there were divine cities of all sizes. They were resplendent and each of them had powerful Heavenly Venerate level sacred guardians!

Further away was the territory of Celestial Venerable Mu, where the black mountain was located. Under the World Tree, all kinds of magnificent divine cities rose from the ground, and even on the leaves were divine cities!

The current Ancestral Court looked completely different from when they had mobilized their armies to attack the Primordial Realm!

Suddenly, Emperor Hao Tian sat down and lost control of his emotions. He wailed loudly.

"Celestial Venerable Mu, in order to defeat me and seize my authority, you have no shame!"

He cried very sadly and became teary. As he scolded, he cried. "You knew you couldn't defeat me, so you released the prehistoric strong practitioners under the world tree. You are a scoundrel, a sinner of the entire universe! Old dog Mu, you are fishing for fame. You have harmed the entire universe and everyone. You should kill yourself to thank the world! You will die a horrible death!"

Right at this moment, Third Young Master's voice came from the Numinous Sky Hall behind his head. He said indifferently, "These strong practitioners were released by Hall Master Ling Guan. This is our way of victory."

Emperor Hao Tian instantly stopped crying and said respectfully, "Young master's actions must have a deeper meaning. May I ask for your guidance?"

Third Young Master Ling Xiao's voice traveled over. "Not all of the strong practitioners under the World Tree are Dao cultivators. After all, there are only a few who have achieved the Dao. Spirit Officials are willing to risk their lives to fight. Releasing them is a great merit. These prehistoric strong practitioners can be easily subdued, and the more they die, the easier it will be for my blood sacrifice."

Emperor Hao Tian bent his body and listened quietly. Joy gradually appeared on his face.

Third Young Master continued, "If you want to subdue them, the most crucial point is to enter the Jade Capital City of the ancestral court. When you get there, in the long river of chaos in the sixteenth era, Fourth Young Master Zixiao will give you a zither string. By holding this string, you will be able to reap countless lives! If you dare to be unconvinced, you will be killed with one string."

Emperor Hao Tian was overjoyed.

The third young master continued, "On the other side, the Primordial Realm's blood sacrifice has reached a critical period. Joy, Changfeng, and Chuge will descend in the next two years. With these three hall masters assisting you, the outcome will be decided."

Celestial Emperor Hao bowed and said with a choked voice, "I will never forget Young Master's favor!"

"There's no need for that."

Third Young Master Ling Xiao said indifferently, "My Miluo Palace has the virtue of loving all living things. If you hadn't harbored ill intentions back then and had second thoughts about my Miluo Palace, you wouldn't have ended up like this. However, it's not your fault, it's Old Seven's fault. He's just a stone in the feces pit that's smelly and hard. He had to resist me to cause so many tragedies and killings. However, this time, the outcome has been decided."

Celestial Emperor Hao straightened his back and gritted his teeth. "Celestial Venerable Mu has done all sorts of evil, it's hard to have a good ending!"

Third Young Master was also somewhat helpless. "If we could kill him, he would have died long ago. You have done a good job in sending him back to the past universe."

Celestial Emperor Hao hesitated for a moment, then summoned up his courage and said, "Young Master, Celestial Venerable Mu wasn't drowned in the river. Instead, there was a villain who caused trouble and released him halfway…"

Third Young Master was silent for a moment. "Unable to accomplish anything, but good at spoiling things."

Emperor Hao Tian hurriedly knelt on the ground and kowtowed endlessly.

"Rise, have some backbone."

The third young master's voice was slightly displeased as he said, "My Miluo Palace doesn't have a master-servant relationship. Anyone who enters my Miluo Palace is a Dao friend. When the Miluo Palace descends in the future, if you still worship me, you will be ridiculed by others. The knees of those who have achieved the Dao aren't that weak."

Celestial Emperor Hao got up in shame.

"Prepare to head to Jade Capital City and pull out this string that crosses two universes and the calamity!"

Celestial Emperor Hao composed himself and said to Celestial Empress, "We have come to the ancestral court, and the celestial heavens has been invaded by prehistoric strong practitioners. The other party has five people who have achieved the Dao, and they also have the help of so many prehistoric strong practitioners. They are powerful, so it's not easy to send troops to suppress them. Furthermore, we will be working together in the future, so Empress Mother, please stay here and don't clash with them directly. I will return after making a trip to Jade Capital City."

Celestial Empress smiled and said, "Hao'er, go ahead."

When Emperor Hao Tian heard her mention Hao'er and not His Majesty, he was slightly displeased. 'When I make a comeback, I'll take back everything I've lost!'

He flashed away.

In the Primordial Realm, Lan Yutian searched heaven and earth, searching for the location of the sacrificial altar. Over the years, he had searched every corner of the Primordial Realm and even the underground.

It wasn't easy to find the Blood Sacrifice Altar. The Blood Sacrifice Altar was constructed from the fragments of the Overarching Heaven Net, so it was very easy to hide it. However, it was very difficult to find it.

The Primordial Realm was vast, so it was very time-consuming to search it.

On this day, he was searching the 36 voids of the Primordial Realm when he suddenly sensed something. He hurriedly sat down cross-legged and sensed carefully. He then leaped up and flew towards the 35th void.

As he sprinted, he executed his divine art, and the void in front of him suddenly split open layer by layer. The void was like a huge onion being peeled off layer by layer!


The last layer of the void peeled open, and a piece of the Great Overarching Heaven Net appeared in front of him!

In the Great Overarching Heaven Fragment, the hexagonal prism rotated, and all kinds of bloody rune markings were continuously imprinted on the Primordial Realm!

'I've found the first sacrificial altar! In that case, it won't be hard to find the other sacrificial altars!'

Lan Yutian rushed into the Great Overarching Heaven Fragment and stood on the hexagonal pillar with one leg. His attainments in algebra weren't high. If Qin Mu was here, he would definitely calculate the location of the imprints of the sacrificial altar's runes and calculate the location of the other sacrificial altars through algebra. His sense of the Dao was stronger, so he attached his consciousness to the hexagonal pillar and spread it out along with the power of the sacrificial altar.

"…Two, three, four, five, six…"

Lan Yutian sensed carefully and quickly found the location of the sixteen pieces of the Great Overarching Heaven Net that shrouded the Primordial Realm. Only then did he let out a sigh of relief.

"In that case, the center of the sacrificial altar is…"

He continued to sense, and his expression changed slightly. There were three central points in the sacrificial altar, and it had been eight years since the counterattack. In these eight years, there would most likely be Dao successors descending from the three central altars!

Cold sweat broke out on his forehead. He couldn't deal with any of the practitioners of Miluo Palace, let alone three.

Right at this moment, he saw a golden ship sailing out of the Ultimate Void.

On the golden ship, Qin Mu sat on a coffin that had been erected. He seemed to be resting with his eyes closed.


Lan Yutian hurriedly rose into the air and landed on the golden ship. He told Qin Mu about his discovery and said, "I'm definitely not a match for three practitioners of Miluo Palace!"

Qin Mu opened his eyes and said with a smile, "There's no need to belittle yourself. Furthermore, we aren't fighting alone. Isn't there still Shang Jun? Brother Yu, look at this coffin, can you open it?"

Qin Mu's eyes were bright, and he gave off an encouraging look. "If you can open it, even thirty people who have achieved the Dao can be beaten to death!"
