Su Mo assured Duan Ling Tian in a serious manner.
“Then I’ll thank you in advance.”
Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled as he expressed his gratitude.
Only after Su Mo left did Duan Ling Tian have a broad grin on his face.
Everything he made up earlier were measures he used to protect himself…
As for ‘foreign lands’ and the Pill Fire of a Grade Two Alchemist, they were all things he found out of from Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memories.
Using it to intimidate people, there would utterly be no one that would doubt it.
After all, it was impossible for even the Supreme Elders of the three great clans of Aurora City to know of these things, let alone a Branch Family disciple of Aurora City’s Li Clan.
Su Mo knew of it only because he was a part of the Alchemist Guild.
The main branch of the Alchemist Guild was in the ‘foreign lands’.
“I hope that Geezer can gather those five materials as soon as possible, because only then can I inscribe the Blood Crescent Inscription. Although it isn’t as strong as the Blood Explosion Inscription on the Spirit Weapon of Aqua Mist City’s He Clan’s Supreme Elder, it is nearly comparable.”
Duan Ling Tian’s eyes flickered with a cold light.
The art of inscription was extensive and profound.
An inscription master, however, was different compared to alchemists and weapons craftsmen.
The latter two required their cultivation to attain a certain level before being able to condense Origin Energy into a Pill Fire or a Weapon Flame to refine medicinal pills or spirit weapons.
The former only had a requirement towards Spiritual Force.
As long as the inscription master had sufficient Spiritual Force and was able to obtain the materials required, no matter how formidable the inscription may be, he would be able to inscribe it…
Origin Energy, in the eyes of inscription masters, was only a tool to inscribe and activate inscriptions.
The Spiritual Force stemmed from the soul.
Maybe it was due to him having traveled through to this world, or maybe it was because he had merged with the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor.
Duan Ling Tian’s soul was terrifyingly strong.
By means of estimation, based on Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memories, Duan Ling Tian could almost be sure that his current Spiritual Force was sufficient to be compared with an Origin Core martial artist’s.
But unfortunately, in Cloud Continent, only Martial Emperor Stage powerhouses were able to fight using Spiritual Force
Or else, with Duan Ling Tian’s current Spiritual Force, it would be sufficient to easily pulverize any martial artist below the Origin Core Stage.
It was precisely because of Duan Ling Tian’s shocking Spiritual Force that as long as he had sufficient materials, he could inscribe inscriptions that only an Origin Core Stage inscription master could inscribe.
Just like the Blood Crescent Inscription he planned to inscribe.
The Blood Crescent Inscription was the inscription with the strongest might among the inscriptions he was currently capable of inscribing.
“It’ll be different now that I broke through to the Core Formation Stage and developed Origin Energy. I can now use Origin Energy to inscribe, so as long as my Spiritual Force can fulfill the requirements of the inscription, I can easily inscribe it.”
Thinking up to this point, a smiled appeared on the corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth. Chapter 82: Ghastly Shadow
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Lucas
In a vast courtyard, an old man stood at a side, his face gloomy.
“Grandfather, what’s wrong?”
A white-clothed youth walked out of his room.
The old man frowned as he slowly said, “That Duan Ling Tian seems to be related to the Alchemist Guild’s Guild Master, Su Mo…”
“How could that be possible? He’s a Branch Family disciple and a disciple with another surname at that; how could he strike a relationship with the Alchemist Guild?”
Li Qing shook his head continuously, unwilling to believe it.
“For some unknown reason, in these last few days, Su Mo would go look for Duan Ling Tian at noon every day.”
Li Tai was slightly fearful for a brief moment.
Although he was the Li Clan’s Grand Elder, in front of Su Mo, he was nothing.
Not mentioning that Su Mo’s strength was above his, solely based on Su Mo’s identity as a Grade Eight Alchemist, if Su Mo wanted to deal with him, he wouldn’t even need to do it himself; only a single word from Su Mo would cause a group of people to come for his life, just to kill him as a favor to Su Mo.
This was precisely the influence of a Grade Eight Alchemist.
“Grandfather, could it be that the enmity for my crippled finger will just be let go like this? I’m not resigned!”
Li Qing’s expression was gloomy and his breathing became hurried.
“Qing, you can be at ease; Grandfather will definitely help you take revenge… Now, since Su Mo and Duan Ling Tian are related, I cannot get involved directly, so I will have to ask someone else to deal with him.”
Li Tai’s face emitted a cold smile.
“Grandfather, what do you mean?”
Li Qing was puzzled.
“Money makes the world go around.”
Li Tai’s brows furrowed.
“Grandfather, you mean we should hire Ghastly Shadow?”
Li Qing’s eyes shone.
I Am No Hero But I Have To Be One Ghastly Shadow, the top organization of assassins in the Crimson Sky Kingdom. They rose like a hurricane twenty year ago and swept through the kingdom.
As long as Ghastly Shadow accepted the assignment, the rate of success was 100%.
Of course, this was closely linked to the rules of Ghastly Shadow.
If one wanted to post an assignment in Ghastly Shadow, a deposit must be paid and the target identified.
Three day later, one needed to reconfirm with Ghastly Shadow to see if Ghastly Shadow was willing to accept this assignment.
If they were unwilling, the deposit would be refunded.
If they were willing, the balance fee must be paid.
Ghastly Shadow only accepted assignments that they were confident about.
As far as Li Qing was concerned, Ghastly Shadow was an organization with such formidable assassins that killing Duan Ling Tian would be a piece of cake.
Deep in the night, in the Li Clan Estate, a robust figure flashed out.
Before long, the figure arrived at a secluded old building in Aurora City and walked in.
The hall was very vast and had dim lighting.
Behind the counter, a young man with a slightly pale face sat there. When he noticed movement, he raised his head and looked with an icy cold gaze at the figure who arrived.
“I want to post an assignment: Li Clan, Duan Ling Tian! This is the deposit.”
The figure was straightforward. He withdrew a stack of silver and slapped it on the counter, then turned around and left.
“Li Clan, Duan Ling Tian.”
The young man registered.
When the first light of morning illuminated the earth, Duan Ling Tian walked out of his room and stretched.
It was a new day!
Duan Ling Tian looked forward only to notice two young girls happily chatting in the courtyard.
“Little Fei, you’re here so early. Did you miss me?”
Silver and Scarlet Promises Duan Ling Tian’s eyes narrowed, greedily sizing up the hot, devilish body of the young girl…
Li Fei glared at Duan Ling Tian and angrily said, “I didn’t come to look for you, I came for little sister Ke Er.”
Duan Ling Tian made nothing of it. As he ate his breakfast, he pricked up his ears to overhear what the two young girls were chatting about.
In the end, he realized that the two young girls were chatting about interesting stories from their childhood.
After he finished his breakfast, Duan Ling Tian went out alone and left the Li Clan Estate.
Su Mo had brought him good news yesterday. Out of the five rare materials that the Blood Crescent Inscription required, two would arrive in Aurora City within the next two days.
As such, he started to prepare the other materials.
Inscribing the Blood Crescent Inscription required a total of eleven materials.
Six of them were comparatively ordinary.
Arriving at the large trade market of Aurora City, Duan Ling Tian entered the medicine store he sold the Six Treasures Body Tempering Liquid at.
Out of the six materials, three were ordinary medicinal materials.
Duan Ling Tian greeted the manager as soon as he entered.
Before long, under Duan Ling Tian’s puzzled gaze, the manager brought him into a small room in the medicine store.
“Manager, what is it?”
Duan Ling Tian inquired.
“Someone wants your life.”
The manager gazed fixedly at Duan Ling Tian as he said this in a straightforward manner.
Duan Ling Tian’s pupils constricted.
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian even had a misconception that the manager’s disposition had changed.
If the past manager was only a completely sordid merchant, then the current manager vaguely emitted a sense of unfathomableness.
It looked like his suspicions from earlier were correct, this medicine store manager was definitely not simple.
“The Li Clan’s Grand Elder, Li Tai, posted an assignment in Ghastly Shadow last night. The target is you,” the manager bluntly said.
Duan Ling Tian’s pupils constricted.
