Forty Millenniums of Cultivation Arc 4: Meteor Sector Part 3

I apologize in advance since I actually read this portion a while ago, and some of my memory/understanding is fuzzy now.

From last time in the summary, LY and Bai Xinghe (BXH) have escaped to a hidden observatory to escape from the case of the Eternal Palace and the star pirates following Feng Yuchong. The roots of the immortal cultivators has been revealed.

Xiao Xuance has been advocating remote crystal armors that won’t require people to be in them. His autistic son was the one who devised the program and will largely be in control. Xiao Xuance is the de facto leader of the cultivator alliance as the single strongest cultivator.

Arc 4: Meteor Sector

LY questions why Bai Xinghe has decided to explain all of this to him. BXH mysteriously says that he essentially owes LY a favor. He also reveals his plan for how he intends to survive. He’s going to essentially unleash a giant flood within the tunnels so they all drown and those that survive will be hunted by the spider things that they passed by earlier. In order to establish a new equilibrium, LY fixes BXH’s crystal armor but also rigs it with a bunch of backdoors. Once it’s fixed, BXH doesn’t actually take the armor back, puts on a different one and launches an attack on LY. He, a nascent soul cultivator, refuses to be at the mercy of one only at the foundation building stage. However, something catches his eyes in the monitor that is setup to watch the planet. The Great Horn Armor Division commander and strategist have snuck onto the planet and are in the tunnels also looking for BXH. It turns out, the strategist on the Great Horn Armor Division, who LY saved previously, is actually BXH’s estranged son. BXH had raised him on the pirate planet, but later on, the mother was killed and the son was sent away. BXH had pretended that his family was dead and then adopted his new son, the one which betrayed him. The son is looking for answers about his mother’s death and his father’s actions.

BXH’s original plan to simply watch and wait is forcibly cancelled. The flood cannot be stopped, but he needs to rescue his son. BXH agrees to wear the modified armor in exchange that LY will save his son and the Great Horn Armor Division commander. He also reveals that Xiao Xuance is likely an immortal cultivator since he had attacked BXH’s parents ship a long time ago, confirming LY’s suspicion that Xiao Xuance is likely a bad guy. The two of them rush back out and LY manages to save the son and commander, but due to the flooding, isn’t able to return to the observatory himself. Instead, LY is accidentally swept into the room where the former pirate king, Yan Xinjian, closed up for his last cultivation when trying to break through into the spirit transformation stage while hiding from the heavenly tribulation that would ensue. BXH presumably dies fighting Feng Yuchong and the Eternal Palace king in charge of the pirates.

Inside the room, LY discovers that he’s trapped unless he can master the cultivation technique left behind by Yan Xinjian. Yan Xinjian’s original intention was to force whoever came here to become strong, but then at a certain point within the culvation technique, the person’s spirit would become temporarily weak. At that point, he would seize control of the person’s body. However, it has been too long and his spirit is essentially gone. Instead, there are a bunch of mice that fight amongst each other. There are various colors of mice, and each color presents a different strong emotion/passion that Yan Xinjian felt during his attempt to breakthrough. Due to his heart’s demons from killing his wife in order to advance faster, Yan Xinjian failed to break through.

LY is now free to cultivate as the room is well-stocked with supplies. In order to get out, he’ll need at least a core formation cultivation. He attempts to break through via the martial path, but fails. In the end, he’s able to break through as a refiner. Multiple years have passed. The remote crystal armors have been dominating the war and the pirate planet is almost doomed. LY schemes his way off the planet and returns to the Heaven Alliance. He meets up with the professors on the Spark Ship but remains incognito otherwise. He gets updated with the situation.

In order to prevent Xiao Xuance from being able to take control of the entire sector via his robot army, LY pretends to be BXH and sets up a trap for Xiao Xuance to reveal his intentions so the alliance can react.

Xiao Xuance falls for the trap and reveals his ambition to unite the cultivation world as immortal cultivators, but unleashes his trump card. As the Lotus King, he sends word to all of the immortal cultivators amongst the ranks of the cultivators to fight. Multiple high-level traitors reveal themselves as immortal cultivators and a civil war begins between cultivators against the immortal cultivators and remote crystal armors.

LY targets the nexus which is controlling the crystal armors. He gets the Spark Ship to help hack the barriers around the it and then sneaks in. Inside, he confronts Xiao Xuance’s autistic son. It turns out, the son is being controlled by a sort of embryo spirit that was sent out by the True Humanity Empire that is much more powerful than the Meteor Sector. That spirit is the Sea King, the last of the four Eternal Palace Kings. The spirit has been working on reigniting the beacon which allows for ships to locate planets and travel easily. At the moment, it’s about 60% lit. Once it’s been lit, the empire will then send an army to recruit/enslave all humans there. Its philosophy is entirely law of the jungle where only the strong get any sorts of benefits. Normal civilians are treated as slaves.

The Sea King and LY battle it out with their spirits. The other cultivators almost give up based on the spirit’s words, but LY detects a lie and reveals that he’s actually from the Heaven Origin Sector which meant that the empire hadn’t spread as much as the spirit said it had. What is true though is that due to the collision between the Heaven Origin Sector and the Blood Fiend Sector, the sector has become incredibly visible and the True Humanity Empire is sending an army to take them over. In a last ditch attack by the spirit, LY almost dies, but something within him called the “Vulture Plan” saves him from death.

By the time LY recovers, the immortal cultivators have been destroyed along with most of the star pirates. LY convinces the Meteor Sector to help send an army to Heaven Origin Sector to assist in the oncoming war against the True Humanity Empire. LY becomes determined to stop the war between the demons and the Federation so they don’t entirely exhaust themselves when the True Humanity Empire arrives.

The professors on the Spark Ship help to locate the Heaven Origin Sector. The Meteor Sector begins constructing a large warship that will be able to traverse across the stars to reach Heaven Origin. As the construction goes on, LY starts having dreams of Heaven Origin being destroyed and becomes increasingly colder in attitude. Once the ship construction is finished, they all fly off with LY in a smaller separate ship so he can arrive there first and explain why the Meteor Sector has come and the trouble that is to come.

Along the way, LY winds up attacking himself in order to attack the parasite that has latched itself into him. He had gotten it when some of the Mountain King’s blood had splashed onto him. LY’s ship winds up crashing into the Blood Fiend Sector instead while the Spark Ship and the Meteor Sector ship arrive safely in Federation territory. LY also left a recording of what he had been planning to do and why to the Meteor Sector people and for the Federation people that would pick them up.

Forty Millenniums of Cultivation Arc 4: Meteor Sector Part 2

LY currently existing as alias of Sha Xie. Wuma Yan comes from a semi-strong background. LY and co. establish a trading group using Wuma Yan’s family. The trading group is used to trade between Iron Origin Planet and the Meteor Sector. It is also the cover for the ghosts on the Spark Ship as they develop and refine things to assist LY.

I’m currently no longer sure if immortal cultivators=demon cultivators. It seems like immortal cultivators don’t use the demon energy as far as I can tell. I’ll correct this and part 1 in the future maybe.

The father that is trying to kill LY is Fengyu Chong, an ally of Eternal Palace.

Arc Four: Meteor Sector

LY has returned to the Meteor Sector and has actually arrived at the Heaven Saint Alliance this time. He goes as an exchange professor, but everyone in the refining department assumes that he’ll only be a cash cow and a barbarian from the Iron Origin Planet wouldn’t be able to contribute anything else to their advanced refining department. LY proves them wrong and develops some new weapons and improves on other designs, earning the respect and awe of other professors and students. In the meantime, he also takes on another disciple named Xia Anan, who happened to have been one of the hostages he had previously saved. Under his tutelage, she rapidly improves her refining skills. She and Wuma Yan don’t get along very well.

In the meantime, in order to combat the encroaching Eternal Palace, there are two suggested means of tackling the issue. One is to resurrect a planet-level weapon from the Star Ocean Imperium era, which would take about 20 years and a lot of resources. The other, suggested by a nascent origin cultivator named Xiao Xuance, is to mass produce remote controlled crystal armors that would be controlled through a nexus.

The alliance learns that there’s likely to be an attack on the city by the Eternal Palace and star pirates. LY and the Spark Ship realize that there’s most likely something fishy about Xiao Xuance and his plan. If the attack happens, it’ll likely accelerate the production of the remote controlled crystal armors and a thorough check by other refiners won’t likely happen. That means there could potentially be a loophole which Xiao Xuance/Eternal Palace might abuse.

The attack happens and stems from a location that was overlooked. Cultivators all try to scramble to save civilians. A nascent origin cultivator star pirate, Netherworld Blade, goes around assassinating powerful cultivators. While there are more nascent origin cultivators in the alliance, they’re unable to find him. He does get into a couple of fights and is injured. He blends into the crowds and flees. LY forms a plan to act as bait to lure him out and kill him by making a big scene to attract the star pirates and Eternal Palace’s attention to him. LY’s value lies in the fact that he’s important to the Iron Origin Planet as a sort of ambassador. Netherworld Blade takes the bait and the two fight. LY manages to kill him and then fakes his death and hides Netherworld Blade’s corpse so that he can sneak off to the Spider Nest Planet, home of the star pirates and where Eternal Palace has a large base.

Sha Xie is presumed dead when they find the armor that he wore at a battle scene. Only Spark Ship still knows that he’s alive.

LY blends into Spider Nest Planet as an explosive expert (of course) and joins a local gang. There is a power struggle going on the planet between Bai Xinghe, King of Star Pirates, and Feng Yuchong, the father of the boy LY murdered, who is backed by Eternal Palace. The gang that LY joins is on Feng Yuchong’s side. Time passes as Feng Yuchong and Bai Xinghe scheme against each other. LY earns a strong reputation as ‘Blood Vulture’ and is recruited to be a part of a strike team against Bai Xinghe’s protege. During the attack, a member of the strike team turns out to be a Bai Xinghe spy, but in turn, it is revealed that the protege has actually betrayed Bai Xinghe and joined the Eternal Palace. After this sudden turn of events, Bai Xinghe is essentially cornered. He loses his left hand in the ensuing fight, which has an interspatial ring which contains a key to the inheritance of a pirate king from 500 years ago. Before they can kill him, LY attacks Bai Xinghe in a wild manner that looks damaging but prevents others from continuing the attack. He also sticks a scent powder on Bai Xinghe to follow him later. Bai Xinghe escapes from the attack. The Eternal Palace members search for him, but also they start to head towards the location of the inheritance which the protege knows about.

Bai Xinghe escapes down below through some tunnels. Before he reaches a teleportation array, LY catches up to him. LY sets up an equilibrium by forcing Bai Xinghe to eat a small bomb that can explode at will. This way, even though Bai Xinghe can still kill LY at any time, LY will at least be able to retaliate and make sure that Bai Xinghe will likely die too. Bai Xinghe brings LY to his most hidden hideaway. They pass through a river and a nest of a spider-type beast that reacts to spiritual energy. Bai Xinghe actually brought LY along just in case for this beast. After they reach the destination, Bai Xinghe begins to talk about the source of the heavenly tribulation of the Iron Origin Star along with human evolution. LY remembers the Mountain King also did something similar to buy time to heal. He starts to panic and tries to blow up the bomb, but the bomb has disappeared. It turns out that Bai Xinghe had previously stored an interspatial ring into his stomach. The bomb had been absorbed into his stomach right before LY tried to blow it up. The only thing destroyed was the space inside the ring. Bai Xinghe now had the dominant position. LY tries to force a new equilibrium. Bai Xinghe reveals that he knows that ‘Blood Vulture’ is Sha Xie who is LY.

Bai Xinghe then talks about their current location, the Star Piercing Pavilion (named after its creator Liu Cixing- Liu Starpierce), an observatory where the heavenly tribulation was first discovered, and about the Dark Forest theory. Part of the reason why it’s so hard to advance beyond the nascent origin stage is due to the Dark Forest/heavenly tribulation. It is essentially a defense mechanism set up by some other civilization. It has been spread throughout the galaxy/universe. Whenever someone tries to surpass the nascent origin stage, the ‘small heavenly tribulation’ will activate and rain down, trying to destroy that person. The reason why the Star Piercing Pavilion is so deep below ground is in part to act as a bunker to avoid most of the tribulation. The previous pirate king actually had holed up down here when he tried to reach the next level, spirit transformation. (FYI, what hit the Iron Origin Star was a big heavenly tribulation)

Liu Cixing had come up with 2.5 principles while down here observing the heavenly tribulations. 1. Universe has limited resources. 2. People will suspect each other but will team up against common enemies. 3. Children of destiny. The third is the half principle that cannot be confirmed; however, the heavenly tribulations are setup exactly to try and kill these children of destiny, people who will rise up against all odds and overthrow whatever shackles are upon them/turn the tides. Basically MCs of a Xianxia novel.

The explanation then turns to why there are immortal cultivators. They are different compared to demonic cultivators. Their origin stems from back during the big heavenly tribulation when half the population fled. The portion that stole all the cultivation manuals that were supposed to stay with those that stayed on the planet did not join up with the main group. They stated that they would join up after everything cooled off and would then accept any judgement/execution as appropriate. Very noble minded people. Then when the half that left tried to help the planet stayers and took a lot of damage, almost getting annihilated, those noble minded people decided then that they were super in the right and celebrated their decision. So they didn’t join back up with the main group. But then they ran into the issue of having no food since they hadn’t planned on actually deserting. They began to kill each other to survive. Thus the lust for power and immortality began among them and the immortal cultivators began.

Forty Millenniums of Cultivation Arc 4: Meteor Sector Part 1

The name of the ship that LY rides off into the distance is called the Spark Ship.

His main Mystic Skeleton armor is continually modified and upgraded (used body parts from the skeleton dragon’s remains).

The home sector is called Heaven Origin Sector. His new location is Meteor Sector. The Meteor Sector was a major battlefield during the civil war. It used to produce lots of crystal armor and has lots of materials in it. The overall region is rather anarchic. Cultivator sects turned to piracy, there are demon cultivators (called immortal cultivators here), and fiend beasts which the demon cultivators attached weapons to. Heaven Saint Alliance is the strongest group in the Meteor Sector and is a group of 6 larges sects that banded together. The great world that was located in the meteor sector was been essentially destroyed and been broken into many smaller slivers/asteroids.

Arc Four: Meteor Sector

LY lands on an asteroid that has a village on it and gets the details about the area from the people there. The strongest villager is only high qi refining stage. The fiend beast that attacks the village has been modified, but LY quickly dispatches it. Learning about the news about a band of pirates that are being chased by the Great Horn Armor Division, LY takes advantage of the fact the pirates are on the run to attack their ship. LY forces the captain and crew members to give him information before killing them. The captain was the son of a core formation cultivator pirate. The father places a large bounty for his son’s killer and the Great Horn Armor Division, but is currently unaware of who killed his son.

LY joins the Great Horn Armor Division as an artificer, pretending to be much weaker than he really is. He wants to draw attention to his abilities as an artificer in order to be able to enter the floating base of the Heaven Sect Alliance. The crew goes through a nebula storm which threatens to destroy the ship, but thanks to LY’s efforts, the crew makes it through.

As LY makes his way to the Alliance headquarters, he participates in the Void Mountain Sword Competition. In the competition, he makes a large impression and even defeats one of the top two contenders. Before he can meet the other one in battle, they are both kidnapped by an organization called the Eternal Palace. Huangfu Shiyi is the artificer in charge who previously won a Void Mountain Sword Competition and has a few crew members who are much stronger than LY and Huangfu Xiaoya. Xiaoya is Shiyi’s niece who was the other strong contender that got kidnapped. Shiyi’s hands had been crippled in an accident earlier, but he has learned a technique to replace his hands if it’s from a relative. LY acquires as much artificing knowledge from Shiyi while acting as if he’ll join the Eternal Palace and become Shiyi’s disciple. As a final test before he admits Shiyi as his master, he wants to compete with Shiyi by creating bombs. The last bomb he makes blows up, causing the fighters on board to panic and try to save him. LY takes advantage of this to kill Shiyi and the fighters on board the ship. In the process, he gets cursed that will force him to be unable to unleash anything past Qi Refining and will eventually kill him.

As this is occurring, the Great Horn Armor Division is being attacked by the angry father core formation pirate. The father also happens to be a subordinate of the Eternal Palace. They are trying to destroy the Great Horn Armor Division before the rest of the cultivator alliance can arrive.

LY then blows up parts of the ships and pretends that Shiyi has betrayed Eternal Palace. He then takes control of the bridge. He orders them to go join up with the attacking pirates. LY wants to ram his ship into the core formation pirate’s ship, but the pirate father suspects them and tells them to stay away. Thus, LY kills the bridge, rams the ship into a closer one, and then uses an escape pod. The pirate father says to not chase since it would only be a distraction. After reaching a safe distance, LY tells the pirates that he was the one who killed the son. Infuriated, the pirate father sends some ships after him, but not the whole fleet.

In the end, LY is chased into a dangerous zone where he sets up multiple bombs, destroying some of the chasers. The father gives up on chasing him.

LY lands on the Iron Origin Planet, severely injured and his mystic suit in disrepair. He first encounters people from the Blazing Sun tribe who are all in the Qi Refining stage. He discovers that qi refining can go beyond the fourteenth level. The inhabitants of the planet are called Qi Refining Warriors. They are stuck in the Qi Refining stage since they don’t have any inheritance for achieving the Foundation Building stage. The encounter goes poorly when it is revealed that he isn’t a native of the planet. The natives are extremely xenophobic. There are six tribes and three of them feel more strongly than the others. LY runs away.

He finds a kid named Wuma Yan and saves him from some scorpions fiend beasts, but he gets poisoned in the process. Wuma Yan brings LY back to the Crazy Bear Tribe. Wuma Yan is the adopted son of Xiong Wuji (Xiong meaning bear). There he is treated by the local “witch doctor.” She and Wuma Yan are people from other places in the Meteor sector so they have a awkward position. Wuma Yan aims to reverse the perception that they don’t belong in the next heavenly tribulation.

LY starts to learn how to advance in qi refining levels. He lives on Iron Origin Planet with the alias Sha Xie (Sand Scorpion). There is a room that people can used in order to speed up training, but they tend to become very bloodthirsty and crazy if they stay in there too long. He eventually hits around level 70. No one on the planet has ever been able to surpass level 99. Reasons are unknown. Xiong Wuji has been stuck at the bottleneck for a long time now.

LY learns the back story of the Iron Origin planets inhabitants. Originally, the six sects in the Heaven Sect Alliance and the six major tribes of the planet all came from Iron Origin planet. Due to the incoming heavenly tribulation, there was a large split between those that wanted to evacuate and those that wanted to stay. There weren’t enough resources to support both options, so neither defense option quite succeeded perfectly. When the Alliance left, they had taken all of the upper level cultivation manuals, leaving nothing behind for the tribes.

LY introduces some improvements to their weapons and creates a new battle armor for himself to use based off of a scorpion. The heavenly tribulation arrives. It turns out the heavenly tribulation is a semi-regularly occurring meteor type of thing that will strike the planet and turn resources into fiend beasts.

LY and company beat back the heavenly tribulation. Xiong Wuji loses an arm. After the battle, Xiong Wuji reveals to LY that he plans to start making contact with the Meteor inhabitants. When Xiong Wuji suggests the plan since they’re running out of resources on the planet to defend against the heavenly tribulations, it’s met with opposition from the three super xenophobic tribes who say that they’ve met a tribe called Oasis in the wastelands who know where there are more raw material deposits. The leader of the Blazing Sun Tribe visits Xiong Wuji and storms off in a huff after some secret discussion.

The next day, the leader has been assassinated. The Blazing Sun Tribe blames the Crazy Bear Tribe. It is revealed that Xiong Wuji is actually an adopted Meteor person and not a native. Xiong Wuji is evicted from his position as chief and imprisoned. LY figures out its all a plot of the Eternal Palace. LY breaks Xiong Wuji out of jail and tells Xiong Wuji about the plot. The Eternal Palace plans on causing an incident in order to cause the Heaven Sect Alliance to go to war with the six tribes, using the tribes as cannon fodder in the upcoming war.

The Eternal Palace has captured twenty high profile university student hostages and the Great Horn Armor Division has been sent to rescue them. The Qi Refining Warriors almost get into a fight with them, but LY avoids the situation. He is accused of also being a Meteor person, but he manages to outwit the lie detector because he’s actually a Heavens Origin person. The new head of the Blazing Sun Tribe is killed when he revealed that he’s a puppet to the Eternal Palace. The new head’s grandfather, the previous head’s father, is revealed to be the “Mountain King”, one of the top four leaders of Eternal Palace. He kills all the followers/spies in the tribes that follow the Lotus King.

He tells everyone about the origins and cause of the heavenly tribulation and how he used the parasite responsible to strengthen himself. He wants for all the Qi Refining Warriors to join him. They refuse, LY and co. get in a fight, and then they kill him. In the fight, Xiong Wuji breaks to the 100th level and LY has managed to remove the curse.

After the battle things calm down. Xiong Wuji is reaccepted as leader. Contact is reestablished with the rest of the Meteor Sector. The tribes start an exchange program with the Heaven Sect Alliance. LY as Sha Xie is sent to a refining academy along with Xiong Wuji’s son, Wuma Yan, who is going to the crystal armor battle school.

 

End of Part 1

Forty Millenniums of Cultivation Arc 3: Secret Star

New background: The military has been trying to raise up the new generation in preparation for the upcoming war with the fiends. They have access to teleport/quickly shuttle weaker users to distant planets that were previous warzones. In those locations, the cultivators can perform missions to earn contribution points that can be spent for materials, weapons, and even training from a nascent soul cultivator.

Arc 3: Secret Star

Now that LY is foundation establishment, he is more formerly introduced to the Secret Star Association. There’s a base deep within the wastelands since it makes it easier for transportation to other worlds. The main force is foundation establishment, since they’ll be strong enough to not die and weak enough that it’s still cost-efficient to transport them. People that were raised up in this environment are called Children of the Secret Star. Those like LY, that were recruited for showing talent and skill, are called External Star Scouts. External Star Scouts and the Children don’t have a good relationship because of some greedy Externals got themselves and some Children killed in a mission. Children tend to look down on Externals.

It turns out DLD is there. She joined the Bronze Corps, so LY joins them too. The team of 6 starts out near the bottom since two of the leading members died before DLD joined. They’re rising again since DLD joined and got a flame-related inheritance pushing her to intermediate foundation establishment.

LY and DLD help to skyrocket the Bronze Corps ranking. In their first mission, they go searching for materials, find the materials, and then find a group of fiends that are digging something up. They attack and destroy the group of fiends. As the fiends die, they release the thing they were digging up, a powerful spirit. LY takes the tool that the fiends were going to use to seal the spirit and modifies it so that humans can use it. Then he seals the spirit, earning a lot of contribution points.

Time goes on, and LY becomes a part of the top 3000 list of people that fiends want to kill. It is also announced that the top ten Star Scout groups will be given a very difficult mission. The Bronze Corps and everyone else start ramping up. They eventually make it to 11th place. Then they become 10th place because one of the top ten groups was ambushed and destroyed by fiends.

There is a quick contest to decide which 5 out of 10 groups will go on the mission. The Bronze Corps gets second place in the contest. They then head out to the “Faraway Star”. When the Bronze Corps arrives on the planet, they land in shallow water with a mountain off in the distance. They discover the mountain is actually an enormous wave and rush to head towards land (Yes, this was a nod to Interstellar). As they explore the in-land, they discover plenty of treasures and beasts and traps.

In the meantime, around 50 or so fiends gear up in advanced biochemical warbeasts, which is their organic version of the crystal armor. Wang Ji is among their numbers. They refer to the planet as “Skeleton Dragon Star”.

One of the five cultivator groups first runs into them and issue a call for help as they are massacred. Bronze Corps rushes to their aid, but they aren’t able to injure the fiends in the new biochemical warbeasts. The Bronze Corps is forced to retreat. They retreat towards a crevice in a mountain where the captain of the corps sacrifices himself to buy the rest of the team time to go further in as the fiends collapse the mountain on top of the Bronze Corps. Now deep underground, Bronze Corps discovers the remains of a Star Ocean Empire-era warship (the era of human supremacy torn apart by civil war).

The ship is in poor condition. As the others recover their strength, LY finds a diary of the person who had survived the longest on the ship. They learn the name of the planet is called “Skeleton Dragon Star” and there is a Skeleton Dragon Demon sealed there. It had been sealed by a previous Fiend Emperor (emperor of empire, stronger than just emperor rank). The entire planet is a trap to get unsuspecting travelers to release it. Learning this LY and team rush to repair the ship.

When the ship is fixed about 9%, they rush to stop the fiends. When they arrive on the scene in front of the door to where the demon is sealed, the rest of the cultivators are struggling to contend with the fiends. LY busts out the ships guns and an advanced crystal armor from the ship and kills most of them. Wang Ji retreats and blows up the vicinity, destroying the seal. The demon kills Wang Ji and possesses Wang Ji’s body.

The cultivators do their best but aren’t able to hurt the demon at all, even though it’s at its weakest point. LY uses the drill on the ship to try and pierce the demon, but the ship is too damaged and he’s too weak (his drill was not one that pierces the heavens). To save the rest of humanity, LY charges up the universe transmission drive on the ship, planning to take himself, the ship, and the demon into the reaches of space so it can’t threaten humanity back home.

With a tearful goodbye with DLD, promising to return, LY launches off. He’s transported into a nebula storm and the demon is ripped apart and most of the ship destroyed. He’s prepared to die and closes his eyes. When he returns to consciousness, he discovers that he has been saved by the spirits of 5 of the artificers that had died in the crystal armor explosion. Together with the professors, LY modifies and improves the ship. He vows to return home in 10 years at the golden core stage.

Forty Millenniums of Cultivation Arc 2: College

Recap: LY’s cheat is having memories of super strong cultivator from 40,000 years ago. He has chosen to go to the Grand Desolate War Institution’s artificer department for college. He issued a challenge to the Deep Sea University that he’ll make the crappiest department into the Refiners’ Holy Land.

New background: The Grand Desolate War Institution is famed for its combat departments. It is located in the wastelands which is where many fiend beasts naturally reside. As you move further away from the main parts of civilization, you’re more likely to encounter wormholes which connect this human world to a world where fiends live. There are frequent fiend/fiend beast waves that pour out and are somewhat like natural disasters. Fiends are intelligent like humans, fiend beasts usually aren’t intelligent and are animals.

Fiend rankings: Soldier, general, king, emperor. No further rankings known yet.

Arc 2: College

LY takes a train to college. He meets an experienced artificer, foundation establishment level, that he makes friends with. Along the train route, a wormhole opens up. LY helps out by repairing a rail gun. 6 people wind up having to sacrifice themselves before the big guns arrive to help save the day. LY is touched by their sacrifice since they chose to save the thousands of civilians instead of saving their own lives. The importance of the role of cultivators and civilians is impressed upon him. Due to getting angry at someone who disparaged those who sacrificed themselves, LY breaks through to qi refining and beats up the other party.

From the wormhole, there’s a lot of demonic energy that isn’t good for cultivators and typically needs clean up. LY finds out that he can convert it to good energy, and that his flying sword seems sentient and can also convert and absorb the energy.

LY arrives at the school. Him and those that are joining the artificer department get a late welcome since there’s project for mass-producible crystal armor that’s almost complete and is the masterpiece of the artificer department that will elevate their standing. It’s called Project Mystic Skeleton. As they’re heading towards the floating mountain where the department is located, the mountain gets blown up by the armor. Everyone in the department dies except those that came to pick them up.

After the explosion, everyone leaves the department, leaving only one professor and LY. The artificer department is allowed to stick around as long as a student is able to get the artificer license after a year. To do so, LY will need to get 40,000 school credits in one year to even attempt it. The previous fastest record was 1.5 years by PH. The next fastest was 2 by DLD.

Ly gets credits by taking classes. It’s too slow, so he uses a mind-accelerating chamber to help him digest the courses. Normally those chambers can only be used for .5 hours before qi deviation. He doesn’t have that issue because of his cheat. Due to prolonged exposure to the chamber, he becomes able to accelerate his mind to ~300% outside of the chambers too. After the first month, he has the most credits which gets him bonus credits. He then starts acting as a sparring for DLD to earn more credits.

LY is given a cauldron by the professor. He goes Skyrim mods on it, and completely revamps the cauldron to a ridiculous point. He incorporates almost everything he learns from the professor into it. The sect that makes the cauldron is responsible for checking to make sure that all modifications are safe. The inspectors are stunned. It’s rule safe.

A wormhole opens near a city. The big ships can’t fire their cannons since they’d destroy the city and kill civilians. All schools and sects that are nearby are called for help. LY joins the school as an artificer, wielding a gatling gun for his weapon. Since he has done a lot of training and sparring, he can carry it with ease. LY and his schoolmates rack up a lot of points. Their crowning achievement is killing a fiend general level fiend using lots of explosives.

LY gets a lot of school credits during this time. He figures killing fiends/fiend beasts is a good source of school credits. He goes hunting, decides it’s inefficient, and then invents the Fiend Beast Tracker. Using the Fiend Beast Tracker, he can figure out what beast he’s looking at and if it’s dangerous or not to fight it. He gets a patent on it. A company tries to buy it, but he doesn’t sell it to them because he wants the rights to improve upon it, not just to make money from it. The company is upset. They’ll pop up again later.

There’s a school competition between departments that’s usually just between the fists and weapons department, but LY wants to join since it’ll net him 10,000 points if he wins. It becomes a 1v2000 situation Through some clever scheming, traps, and plans, he winds up on top and reaches his goal of 40,000 points.

LY takes the test and meets Jiang Shaoyang, the first person his age that is as talented as him in artificing. Jiang Shaoyang is known as “Tenth Star” since he would be the tenth direct student under the most dazzling current artificer Jiang Sheng known as “Supernova.” They compete throughout the entire examination period. First is the written test, which Jiang Shaoyang wins. Since they finish early, they do a bit of friendly competition that winds up in a tie. In the second test, LY wins, making it 1:1. The final test is to repair a mechanical wolf. The vertebrae of each wolf is cracked and requires a metal that they aren’t given to repair as a trap to see if the examinees would notice. Jiang Shaoyang notices and asks the examiners where the metal is. LY doesn’t know you can ask the examiners for it, so he completely revamps his wolf into a tarantula instead which wouldn’t need a spine.

The examiner from the Deep Sea University isn’t convinced that LY should pass this portion, so they have LY’s tarantula fight Jiang Shaoyang’s wolf. The tarantula wins by exploiting Jiang Shaoyang’s mentality. Jiang Shaoyang is convinced by this loss. After talking a bit with LY, he decides to quit Deep Sea University and shaves his head. He drops the moniker “Tenth Star” and wants to be known as “Sun” from now on.

LY goes back triumphant and the artificer department is allowed to stay afloat. A new batch of students that were inspired by LY join the department. LY partners up with a sect that’s struggling financially to sell the Fiend Beast Detectors.

With most things squared away, LY refocuses his attention onto Project Mystic Skeleton, the mass-producible crystal armor. The professor talks him into taking crystal armor lessons during summer break so that he’d be able to operate the crystal armor when they finish their prototype. LY does so and becomes near the top of his class after some initial struggles. As the course ends, the final challenge is to kill fiend beasts. Top ten highest scores get certified. LY goes to a mountain, and there’s another storm, cutting off his contact from the teachers and the other students.

Trapped deep in the mountains, LY stumbles across a group of fiends that are trying to enslave a lion dragon fiend beast. The fiend group notices LY but don’t take him seriously since he’s only qi refining. He kills his two pursuers. LY winds up finding the lion dragon fiend beast surrounded by other, weaker fiend beasts. It had escaped the fiends temporarily, but it had a soul-controlling nail stuck into it. Severely weakened, it and the other fiend beasts are killed by LY. Knowing that the fiends are coming, LY takes some scales and blood and attaches bombs onto the fiend beast’s core. When the fiends arrive, they get close and get blown up. Only the commander, fiend general Wang Ji, and the two fiend kings survive. Wang Ji kills the two fiend kings to recover his strength. LY barely survives and promotes to qi refining 11th level, only about three steps away from foundation establishment.

LY comes back and is lauded for having miraculously survived for so long in the mountains. He does not get the official armor license. LY hears that the Fiend Beast Detectors aren’t selling well. The company LY rejected earlier is putting pressure on that sect and slanders LY’s invention. LY eventually goes to PH for help, and with PH’s help and financial backing, the Fiend Beast Detector becomes a financial success. LY also attributes his survival to the Fiend Beast Detector. Instead of selling it to cultivators, it is sold to civilians that live in cities in the wastelands. Some extra functionality is added for better civilian survivability.

LY realizes he has feelings for DLD. He starts to romantically pursue her, but she pushes him away. Eventually he wins her over. They start dating.

It is announced that most likely the Federation and the fiends are going to war soon. Mass-producible crystal armors are now needed more than ever. It’s a race between crystal armor makers to see if they can get the government contracts. Deep Sea University is the first one to make an announcement about a mass-producible crystal armor; however, it’s much more expensive compared what Project Mystic Skeleton which is based off of common materials instead of heavenly treasures.

The entire grassroots movement amongst artificers comes to help and make Project Mystic Skeleton a success. LY figures out why the explosion occurs and fixes it. Meanwhile, other crystal armor makers show off their products.

There is an expo for where crystal armors get to be put on display and compared. LY is put in charge of demoing the armor. It is demonstrated that the mystic skeleton crystal armor isn’t necessarily as strong/durable as the others, but it is still very strong and durable and much cheaper. Eventually there’s a competition where the armors are supposed to survive against a battleship for 10 hours. LY decides to take control of the ship instead of trying to hide and endure the ships attacks and barrages. LY captures the battleship along with the majority of the government contracts. “Supernova” Jiang Sheng grudgingly admits his respect for LY.

When the competition ends, LY is approached by one of the observers and is given a card related to the Secret Star Association. He is told that he’ll understand what the card means when he reaches foundation establishment. LY is able to take a peek into the card, but isn’t able to do much else with it.

Time passes by. LY reaches peak qi refining. DLD has gone somewhere else to train. The fiend army launches an attack, trying to get their foot past the doorstep. Seven cities are attacked, and LY hurries to one of them. There’s a teleportation device being set up there. LY fixes a rail gun to destroy nearby fiends and save soldiers. He then destroys the teleportation device as Wang Ji is trying to come out of it. Wang Ji is severely injured, but as a peak fiend general, he was still able to beat LY back before needing to run away. In the end, the fiends are beaten back, and because of the fight, LY breaks through to foundation establishment. Wang Ji discovers that it was LY who foiled his plans back in the mountains.

Now that LY is foundation establishment, he graduates from college. Instead of taking a teaching position he goes off to join the Secret Stars Association which is no longer so secret since war is approaching and the Federation needed propaganda.

 

 

Forty Millenniums of Cultivation Intro and Arc 1: High School

I’ve been reading ahead in LNMTL, and I wanted to keep track of what happens for other people in case they want a sort of spoiler summary of what’s to come. I’ll try to be concise as much as possible. If you’ve got questions, I’ll try to answer the best I can.

MC is Li Yao, who I’ll refer to as LY. LY is smart, loyal, cunning, ambitious, and ruthless.

Background is universe where cultivation is mixed with pseudo-science. A large universe. Humans once ruled the universe, went into decline, fiends ruled for a long time, and now humans are back on their feet. Previous 2 eras of human supremacy are 40,000 years ago, and when they had an empire post-fiend era which broke down due to fiend manipulation and civil war. Humanity is now governed by the Federation. Humanity is united, but doesn’t own the universe.

Cultivation starts from spirit root awakening, qi refining, foundation establishment, core formation, nascent soul, tribulation ascension, and true immortal.

High School Arc
LY starts out as a high school student. The school’s divided into 3 parts. Talented, kind of talented, and non-talented. LY is non-talented. His dream is to become the greatest artificer, the occupation of inventor/engineer/mechanic. LY has no parents, and makes his living by competing in the scrap yard where he is known as the “Vulture”, a moniker that follows him for the rest of the series. He has a black flying sword that he inherited from the old man who took care of him.

LY receives his cultivation cheat when he witnesses a powerful human being get run over by a train. The spirit of the powerful human being tries to possess his body, but fails because LY is actually a human from “Earth” who had somehow wandered into this universe and possessed this body first thus becoming immune. LY is put into a temporary coma where he lives the spirit’s life. The spirit is from 40,000 years ago. He was super strong, created a time machine, went forward in time, and then got run over by the train (the reason why it’s possible for someone so strong can be killed so stupidly is explained later). LY immediately becomes stronger and his spirit root % shoots up from like 30s to 50s. A minimum of 60% is required to be a part of the talented class, so he couldn’t immediately enter.

Meanwhile, LY has made an enemy of the strongest kid in the school because he got a bit too close that guy’s girl. A side effect of the power-up is that LY is now always hungry. While eating at a buffet, he accidentally gets into a confrontation with strong kid and humiliates him. LY starts training at a gym where he acts as a sparring partner for a Fiend Blade Peng Hai (who I’ll refer to as PH). PH is a foundation establishment cultivator who’s known as a genius and youngest foundation establishment cultivator.

Strong kid gets grounded, and then sends goons to beat up LY. Goons get beat up. LY continually gets stronger and soon his spirit root % is close to if not stronger than the strong kids. LY gets personal tutoring from a teacher. There’s a school competition to see who can go on a field trip for a bigger competition that college recruiters watch. LY shows off how strong he is now and easily acquires a ticket. He doesn’t get a chance to beat up strong kid here.

School goes on a country/planet-wide field trip where they compete for recommendations and scholarships for college. Those in the top 50 don’t have to go through college exams. First part is individual, trying to acquire as many points as possible by killing fiend beasts (different from fiends). Second part is dividing into two teams, trying to eliminate the other team and get more points. Stronger fiend beasts are also released during this time. All contestants are given a little robotic flying pig thing that can protect the contestant from a lethal blow and monitor the contestants’ well-being. Contestants that needed the pig protection are eliminated from the competition.

Before the contest, LY takes a look at some college recruiting booths. There’s 9 big colleges. As an artificer, he really wants to go the the Deep Sea University, the “Holy Land for Refiners.” He accidentally meets Ding Lingdang, the college recruiter from the Grand Desolate War Institution. She tries to recruit him, but he’s not interested.

LY makes his points by going to the supply depots where all weapons and supplies are stored as components that need setup, muddling all the parts together so others won’t know how to assemble them, and then selling the weapons. He also wires up a bunch of bombs together so that others can’t just steal the weapons. If they do, he’ll blow himself and the opponent up together. Those that aren’t intimated by the bomb, he assassinates them. Soon he gets first place and then slacks off as he wait for the second half.

In the second half, LY is on the red team which doesn’t have a strong leader. Strong kid is on the blue team which does have a commander-type cultivator. Blue team is beating the snot out of the red team. LY pretends to want to kill strong kid, but winds up blowing up the entire blue base up, killing all base personnel including the commander and strong kid. Red team then starts making a comeback.

In the background, all the college recruiters are super excited and want to recruit him. They’re making offers and guarantees for full rides, or at least strong recommendations if he doesn’t survive until the end.

There’s a sudden storm that cuts off communications. The robotic flying pigs aren’t working properly anymore either. Organizers choose not to cancel the contest since there shouldn’t be anything lethal on the island. One person from the blue team who’s been panicking ever since the command center died has smuggled a doping drug. He’s about to take it when he gets killed by an ape. The ape takes the drug and goes on a rampage. Multiple people die. Eventually LY kills it. As he approaches its body, he’s struck by a mental attack from the ape’s resentment.

It knocks LY unconscious and seemingly ruins his spirit root. In truth, the attack destroyed what remnants were left of the powerful being’s soul. Now LY can access the powerful beings memories at will. The restriction is that his current strength level needs to equate to the powerful beings memories. So right now, he can only access the pre-qi refining memories. He gets caught up in going through those memories and becomes stronger while going through them.

While LY is unconscious, the colleges have all moved on and withdrawn their offers since it looks like he’s now a cripple. Only Ding Lingdang (now referred to as DLD) sticks around. LY is given the Class 1: Disabled Serviceman rank due to his injuries in part being due to the carelessness of the military not calling the competition off. DLD still tries to get him to come to Desolate Institute’s fighting department. He says no.

When LY returns, he gets kicked out of high school because of strong kid’s dad’s influence. LY goes to PH’s place and trains there, planning to recuperate and get stronger. In order to still be able to take the test, LY registers at a weak high school that readily welcomes him even though they think he’s a cripple. LY communicates with the Deep Sea college recruiter and apologizes by saying he won’t be going to Deep Sea. The dean acts rudely to him saying they don’t want him anyway because he’s garbage.

The college exam comes around. LY gets first place. People come back begging for him to choose them. LY chooses Desolate Institute’s artificer department, which happens to be ranked the worse department in all 9 big colleges. He challenges Deep Sea University and says that he’ll turn the artificer department there into the new holy land for refiners.

End Arc 1.

Chapter 22 Get Out!

Xia Chen Xi’s arrival speed was very quick. Not long after, a carriage stopped in front of the Treasure Pavilion.

Lu Xuan and the few others turned their heads and saw two well-dressed and fair-bodied women jump off of the vehicle. It was Xia Chen Xi and Lin Xin Yi. These two were holding hands, daintily walking towards the Treasure Pavilion.

However, as the two had just entered, someone blocked their path.

“Young miss Chen Xi, young miss Xin Yi, it’s been a while.” Long Zhi had a fawning smile on his face as he stood in front of the two ladies.

Suddenly having been blocked by someone, Xia Chen Xi slight frowned, looking a little unhappy, but her attitude was good and she took a look at Long Zhi. However, she discovered that she didn’t recognize this person. Immediately she asked with a bit of a puzzled tone: “You are?”   

Being asked this question by Xia Chen Xi, a bit of embarrassment appeared on Long Zhi’s face. He awkwardly smiled and introduced himself: “I am the enchanter guild’s Long Zhi. We have met a few times before.”

Long Zhi? Xia Chen Xi searched her memories and discovered that she didn’t have any sort of impression of him. The amount of people in the enchanter guild wasn’t a small number. With her identity, everyone would recognize her, but those that were qualified to be remembered by her was not a large number.

Xia Chen Xi could endure speaking with Long Zhi, but Lin Xin Yi didn’t have any interest towards Long Zhi who had popped up out of who knows where and she directly ignored his presence. Her eyes passed by him and saw Lu Xuan behind him. Her face immediately became happier.

“Lu Xuan, do you still remember me? We meet again.” Lin Xin Yi said as she simply cast off Xia Chen Xi and walked over to Lu Xuan, blinking a pair of moist eyes.

“I remember. Of course I remember.” Lu Xuan nodded with a little embarrassment, his face turning a little red. Facing such a beautiful young lady like Lin Xin Yi, Lu Xuan who had just awakened interest in the opposite sex, naturally felt a little odd.  

Receiving Lu Xuan’s response, Lin Xin Yi immediately began to giggle excitedly, revealing two cute dimples, and her eyes were bright.

Lin Xin Yi also didn’t know why, although she had only met Lu Xuan yesterday, once she saw him she was very excited. Normally she was surrounded by an endless amount of gallant princes, similar to Long Zhi, but she only felt disgust towards them. Her feelings towards Lu Xuan were entirely different.

“As long as you remember. I’ve heard from Ninth Uncle that you successfully drew an enchantment scroll?” Lin Xin Yi continued to ask.

Once they spoke of business, Lu Xuan finally began to normalize. He nodded his head and said, “It should be a success, however, senior said he couldn’t appraise it, thus we specifically troubled young miss Lin Xi and young miss Chen Xi to help appraise it.”

   Lin Xin Yi cutely spat out her tongue, saying: “I’m don’t have that ability. It’s true that Chen Xi is a talented enchanter though. Also, don’t call me whatever young miss Lin. Hearing that sounds strange and awkward. How about you call me Xin Yi.”

Finished speaking aloud, Lin Xin Yi secretly added in her heart: Others want to call me that and I won’t let them, I’ve gone easy on you.

As the two were speaking, Xia Chen Xi also finally got rid of Long Zhi and came to the side of those two.

She first greeted Ninth Uncle and then began speaking to Lu Xuan, asking with some surprise: “You’ve succeeded in drawing the Wild Explosion scroll?”

“En, the drawing was successful. I also have to thank young miss Chen Xi for the notes that you gave me. They were very beneficial. However, senior just said that he couldn’t appraise the scroll, thus we have you trouble to the young miss to appraise it for us.”

“Young miss, the transmission rune contents weren’t too clear. This old servant could not reach a verdict on this Wild Explosion scroll, and thus I called the young miss over to personally appraise it.” Ninth Uncle said.

Xia Chen Xi nodded her head, “Let me first look at the rune then.”

“Young miss Chen Xi, you don’t need to look at that rune. I just took a look at it, and it wasn’t even an enchantment scroll. It was just some smeared animal blood.” Long Zhi who Xia Chen Xi had rid herself of now once again stuck himself into the conversation and continued to talk noisily.

Just now Xia Chen Xi had spoken a few words with him causing him to be so happy he was lost, and he really saw himself as a character. Although he was a member of the Enchanter’s Guild, he was only an apprentice enchanter. In front of ordinary martial artists, putting on airs was fine, but whether it was Xia Chen Xi, Lin Xin Yi, or Ninth Uncle, none of them would put him in their line of sight.

However his putting on airs was annoying Lin Xin Yi. Her eyebrows pricked up as she glared at Long Zhi saying: “Who are you, ah? Is this a place for you to talk? Go off to the side and cool off.”

Towards other people, Lin Xin Yi would not have the same attitude as she did towards Lu Xuan, not to mention, Lin Xin Yi had some interest in Lu Xuan. Long Zhi calling the enchantment scrolls that Lu Xuan drew worthless was essentially the same as running his mouth into a wall, inflicting self-pain.

After being reprimanded by Lin Xin Yi, Long Zhi felt a little awkward, and didn’t dare to say anything.

Seeing Long Zhi’s lack of courage, Yao Lei suddenly grinned. Seeing the villain being deflated was great. It was still older brother Xuan who was powerful. He had secretly gotten young miss Lin’s favor. Yao Lei thought to himself, in a while after they went back, he would have a good talk with Lu Xuan. Young miss Lin actually had interest in him. He should take this up and become the Lin family’s in-law. Then he wouldn’t be short on money!

Without Long Zhi’s racket, Xia Chen Xi could finally calm down and look at Lu Xuan’s enchantment scroll.

Unfurling the enchantment scroll and glancing through it, Xia Chen Xi was completely shocked, her concentration suddenly became very focused. Her eyes became very concentrated on the scroll.

The entire Treasure Pavilion suddenly became very quiet. Long Zhi’s people didn’t dare to say anything, afraid of irritating Lin Xin Yi, and Lu Xuan was nervously watching Xia Chen Xi. If Xia Chen Xi also said there was no way to appraise it, then he was afraid that he would not be able to sell the three Wild Explosion scrolls in the near future.  

As for Lin Xin Yi, she seemed much more interested in Lu Xuan than the Wild Explosion scroll. Her eyes were looking at the scrolls, but from time to time she would turn her head to look at Lu Xuan and smile a little.

Only after a long time did Xia Chen Xi finally exhale a deep breath, close her eyes, and rub her temples with her hands. She seemed very tired.

Just now she hadn’t been just simply glancing at it, but had been emitting her own mental energy to thoroughly examine the rune once, which had led to excessive consumption.  

“Young miss, how is it?” Ninth Uncle couldn’t help but ask. This was the first time seeing this sort of strange enchantment scroll. Truthfully, he thought in the bottom of his heart that the scroll was most likely a success, but he didn’t dare to be sure.

Xia Chen Xi slowly opened her eyes, preparing to speak. Suddenly, she seemed to have thought of something and turned her head towards Long Zhi and his crowd, saying: “You’re called Long Zhi right?”

“Yes, yes. Does young miss Chen Xi have a request?” Hearing Xia Chen Xi say his name, Long Zhi’s eyes lit up, and he hurriedly spoke.

“Take your men and go out first.”

“Ah?” Long Zhi was dumbfounded, and hurriedly said: “That, I am also an enchanter. If young miss Chen Xi wants to study it, maybe I can help a bit.”

“Get out.” Xia Chen Xi’s tone became a bit louder. This time, she didn’t seem to have such a good temper. Even if a person’s temperament was better, they still would have a limit.

“Uh, okay then. I’ll leave first then. From now on, young miss Chen Xi can find me at the Enchanter’s Guild.” Long Zhi still didn’t fully give up and said.

“If you’re told to get out then get out. Stop it with the useless talk.” Lin Xin Yi said impatiently.

Waiting until Long Zhi’s crowd exited, Xia Chen Xi’s personal guards immediately surrounded the Treasure Pavilion to prevent others from entering.

“Bro, you said before that your relationship with Xia Chen Xi was pretty good right? Why is it now…” Long Yang wondered.

“When did I say that my relationship with her was good?” His lies exposed, Long Zhi’s face was red. Following that, he fiercely said, “What aura. Isn’t it just a girl. There will be a day that I show you my formidability, hmph.”

Finished speaking, Long Zhi brought Long Yang and the crew away. Even if they stayed here, they would just be bringing contempt on themselves.

Inside the Treasure Pavilion, Xia Chen Xi’s face was a little imposing as she looked towards Lu Xuan, “Lu Xuan, was this Wild Explosion scroll really drawn by you?”
