“Hit all you want, hit all you want.” Luo Feng was seated comfortably in the control room, watching at ease as the seven universe masters attacked like crazy from the outside. However, the supreme true treasure Star Tower was simply too powerful. It could reduce the impact of their attacks to such a negligible degree that Luo Feng’s godly power hardly felt anything. With Luo Feng’s power, it was possible for him to be free from distraction.
“There is no need for me to go out at all,” he said. “I can use my godly power to penetrate into that crystal pillar to continue with my practice of the Rhinoceros Emperor Game.” Luo Feng smiled. “I do not even need to extend the use of my godly power into studying the endgames!”
In the virtual universe, on a lone individual surface, fog shrouding the surroundings, and there were numerous stone pillars with three-dimensional virtual shadows. On the left row were 123 stone pillars, and on the right were 10,080 stone pillars.
Luo Feng appeared out of thin air, and parked himself within the stone pillars, and could not help feeling pleased. “This Rhinoceros Emperor Game. To complete decoding the entire game and 10,080 endgames, I will have to simulate it all the way in the virtual universe. I can immerse myself in comprehending without worrying about how the three groups of powers were torturing themselves out there. I have nothing to do with them.”
Decoding the Rhinoceros Emperor Game and all its endgames was not a situation that had been within Luo Feng’s control prior to being besieged. Rather, after Primal Chaos City Leader and Huge Axe Creator learned about the Rhinoceros Emperor Game, they had immediately asked Luo Feng to send a simulation of it back to the virtual universe. Obviously, Primal Chaos City Leader, Huge Axe, and the other great beings of the human race were very curious about the game.
Thye Rhinoceros Emperor Game had been the most popular game in the days of the ancient great civilization, and it also provided supplementary help for cultivation. How could Huge Axe and Primal Chaos City Leader not be intrigued?
This was why Luo Feng had to simulate the game all the way to the virtual universe. So long as he was able to simulate one version, relying on the power of the virtual universe, more copies could be made so that every universe master of the human race could study the game.
“The Rhinoceros Emperor Game is simply too mysterious,” mused Luo Feng. “I need to continue studying it.”
His consciousness was in the virtual universe, as it was responsible for observing things. The real studying of the game took place in Huge Axe Creator’s miniature universe.
Time passed like flowing water. In the Universe Boat, at the cabin doors of the Boat of Mausoleum…
“Purple Moon Holy Land and East Emperor Holy Land, the both of you do not need to worry about any impending doomsday. Why do you want to vie for the inheritance too? Just the two of you? Do you think you are enough to stop all of us from the first reincarnation era? Besides, it is not just us from the first reincarnation era. I believe the other two reincarnation eras have plans to enter, too.”
“You two old fellows, scram!”
“How dare you sever all hope for my race. I shall not worry whether you are from a holy land or not. Everyone, let’s join forces and attack!”
The situation at the cabin doors was already a state of frenzied killing. The first reincarnation era, who facing an impending doomsday, would no longer be mindful of whether their opponents were from a holy land or not; they were about to meet their doomsday, yet the universe supreme masters from the two holy lands had dared to join forces in blocking the entrance of the cabin doors. Were these great beings from holy lands tired of living?
At that instant, the two universe supreme masters, together with the dozens of universe masters, joined forces in a crazy exchange of attacks. Only universe supreme masters of the two holy lands had supreme true treasures, but they could not seem to use them to attack all at one time.
“You may be able to hinder us this time, but how long can you keep up with the obstruction?”
“When the other groups of powers arrive, you all will not be able to resist any further.”
“You idiotic holy land.”
“You deserve to die.”
Great beings from the other groups of powers from the first reincarnation era were getting growing furious because they were blocked and stuck outside. The Divine Eye Clan was merely one of the many groups of powers from the first reincarnation era. One to one, the holy land universes were indeed very powerful. But when compared to an entire reincarnation era—even the weakest primal universe era—both holy lands had to join forces to be comparable in power.
Within the first reincarnation era, universe supreme masters alone numbered in the dozens ! In terms of power, even if the two holy land universes were combined to obtain doubled power, they were still far from that of the first reincarnation era. Not to mention that this time, it was all about the third reincarnation era.
The two old fellows from Purple Moon Holy Land and East Emperor Holy Land forcibly blocked the entrance for more than a year, thereafter, the seven universe supreme masters brought their teams of universe masters and mightily forced their way in. These seven universe masters were fast and assisted the two holy lands in continuing to block off oncoming great beings. This time round, only half a year passed but the last batch of twenty odd universe supreme masters who had led a large army of universe masters, universe knights and a sea of undying godly spirits, had charged their way in…
Mightily, they charged their way in.
Duan Dong River’s selection process this time round was obviously much more aggressive, if the selection process during Luo Feng’s batch had eliminated fifty percent of the turnout, then because the number of candidates turning up later was simply overwhelming… the elimination rate of universe masters and universe knights thereafter increased from fifty per cent to eighty percent! And the elimination rate of undying godly spirits reached a new high of ninety-nine percent…
Within the life and death corridor of the Boat of Mausoleum, elite great beings from the three reincarnation eras and the two holy lands gathered.
From Purple Moon Holy Land, there were eleven universe masters.
From East Emperor Holy Land, there were fourteen universe masters.
From the entire first reincarnation era, there was a total of six universe supreme masters and 126 universe masters.
From the entire second reincarnation era, there was one universe supreme master and 32 universe masters
From the primal universe era, there was 21 universe masters.
Judging form the number of great beings, one could tell… the determination of the first reincarnation era! Almost every group of power had sent their elites, yet before the number and power of the first reincarnation era, groups of powers such as those from the two holy lands could only lower their heads and stand aside as they no longer had any advantages to speak of. The reason why the number of universe supreme masters was not considered many…
More of it was because of the two holy lands.
The two holy lands had arranged for universe masters, universe knights and undyings to be sent over, but they did not send any universe supreme beings in. The three reincarnation eras saw the arrangements and understood right away. In terms of inside information, in terms of number of secrets known, the three reincarnation eras would never be able to hold a candle against the two holy land universes. Since long ago, the two holy land universes had always been aloof and detached, yet this time, they had sent in quite a sizable army of universe masters, making it very apparent that the inheritance this time round, was indeed, very important.
Next important point to take note was that the holy land universes did not deploy any universe supreme masters, which most probably meant that… even if universe supreme masters were to go in, they would not serve much purpose.
Therefore, other than the two universe supreme masters from Divine Eye Clan who had initially charged their way through, the groups of powers were no longer as reckless as before. It was only the first reincarnation era who felt compelled to send six universe supreme masters as they were a little crazy in the face of their impending Doomsday. The second reincarnation era merely sent one, which was also a lone wanderer. The primal universe simply kept its universe supreme masters away from deployment.
Around a dozen universe masters were waving their close-range killing true treasures and roaring without inhibitions as they attacked the crimson tower, loud roars sounded time and again, causing the entire life and death corridor to tremble as a result.
“What is going on, who are the lord universe masters attacking?”
“That tower that is under attack belongs to a human from the primal universe —— Milky Way horde leader! It is said that the most possible candidate to receive the inheritance is Milky Way horde leader, that’s why everyone is trying their best to influence and affect him when he is in the process of comprehending the game.” The undying godly spirits were sending messages to one another secretly via voice transmissions as there were simply too many undying godly spirits present.
Just like the first reincarnation era, almost every other group of power had brought millions of undyings! Even Divine Eye Clan sent over a second batch of undying godly spirits!
This resulted in the number of candidates, who were undying godly souls from the three reincarnation eras and the two holy lands, to still be close to a hundred thousand even after the selection process! The total number of universe knights was close to three thousand! The number of universe masters was close to two hundred! At that moment, this was the situation within the life and death corridor.
“Human form Milky Way, what makes you think you can accept that inheritance?”
The various groups of powers had their great beings occasionally attacking, making it seemed as though Luo Feng was their punching bag. Regardless of whoever or whenever, anyone could attack him as and when they pleased!
Within Star Tower, Luo Feng opened his eyes and snorted as he took one look at the outside situation, “Make all the noise you want, make as many complains as you wish, when I receive the inheritance, you all will receive the greatest shock of your lives. However… it seems like Duan Dong River is bent on choosing a good heir this time, he has gotten so many candidates to step forward to vie for the inheritance, even my Hong Alliance also sent in so many representatives.”
This time round, the weakest group of power, was none other than primal universe era, furthermore, the number of great beings being sent over was few to start with, therefore, the various groups had to act with concerted efforts.
Human race, bugs clan, demon clan, automaton race, crystal clan, prison race, Space Beast Alliance, Ancestral God School… various groups of powers from the primal universe had combined efforts, sending a large army of great beings, with the number of undying godly spirits exceeding one hundred thousand… and all of these charged over with murderous intentions, and all of them were great beings that had passed the selection.
Those who made it into the Rhinoceros Emperor Game was a much smaller number. Among them, Hong Alliance had one universe master ‘Peng Gong Master’, nine universe knights and 102 undyings.
“Milky Way horde leader has become a common enemy that everyone targets to kill.”
“What a pity, we are also at our wits end.”
21 universe masters from the primal universe had gathered; Peng Gong Master saw how the other reincarnation eras and two holy lands were attacking Luo Feng, and he was so mad that his expression changed into an unpleasant sight. Yet, he was helpless. As for the others like bugs clan, demon clan and prison clan, who might have showed empathy on the surface, might most probably be secretly gloating over Luo Feng’s predicament, they would not have wished for the human race to become stronger!
Regardless of how the outside world was turned upside down, Luo Feng was still quietly studying the Rhinoceros Emperor Game.
Time was like flowing water, and the years flew by.
In a blink of the eye, close to 500 years had passed. Originally, everyone had thought the time required to complete the test of this Rhinoceros Emperor Game would not be that long, yet the fact had proven otherwise, and elites from the three reincarnation eras and the two holy lands truly felt the difficulty of the Rhinoceros Emperor Game.
“The 999th stage is successfully decoded.”
In the space of an individual plane surface within the virtual universe.
Luo Feng stood before the three-dimensional virtual shadow of the 1000th endgame and studied it thoroughly… Close to 500 years… endgame after endgame had been decoded, yet the time that Luo Feng spend on decoding these endgames was continuously increasing, he was getting slower and slower, and had to spend close to 500 years to perfectly decode the full 999th stage.
“The 1000th stage…”
Luo Feng had a feeling, this first 1000 stages, would most probably be a bottleneck.
In the virtual universe, while Luo Feng was observing the three-dimensional virtual shadow of that 1000th endgame, a man in white robe stood a short distance away and watched him. This man in white robe had eyes like jade stones, which vaguely seemed to contain all the secrets within the universe, there was a faint smile on his face, and he was very at ease and relaxed, as though he was on an outing.
“Luo Feng has proven himself once again.” The man in white robe was observing from afar, and even though Luo Feng could see far into the distance in this direction, it was as though the man in white robe was invisible to him.
Within the virtual universe, not even Huge Axe Creator could do this.
Only the creator of the virtual universe —— Teacher Origin! Only Teacher Origin could achieve this… to be before Luo Feng, and yet Luo Feng could feel nothing.
“Such a short cultivation, but extremely strong willpower.” The man in white robe soft sung praises of Luo Feng, “Has chosen to take the path of studying diagrams of secret engravings… it may be possible that studying the diagrams of secret engravings is similar to studying the Rhinoceros Emperor Game, if not, it will not be possible that even Huge Axe’s speed can be so far from his.”
The great beings within the human race were also studying the Rhinoceros Emperor Game through the virtual universe.
Would certainly know the progress of each and every one.
He was shocked to discover that Luo Feng’s speed of comprehension far surpassed any of the other universe masters, even Huge Axe could not hold a candle to Luo Feng…
“Judging from the inheritance.”
“Undyings, knights, universe masters, universe supreme masters… the four levels have very different foundations of their own, speeds of comprehension are fundamentally different. I suppose the requirements for each level during the selection test will also differ.” The man in white robe gently nodded, “Luo Feng is merely a universe knight, the requirements for him should not be that high, and he himself could comprehend so quickly, no wonder Duan Dong River has set eyes on him.”
“Studying the diagrams of secret engravings…”
The man in white robe shook his head and mused, “Rhinoceros Emperor Game? Interesting!”
“Huge Axe is obviously not as outstanding in his ability to deduce because he is too foolishly rigid, placing all his affections on his axe!” The man in white robe shook his head, Otherwise, given his foundation of a universe supreme master, his speed of comprehension would not lose to Luo Feng.”
“The Rhinoceros Game is indeed very interesting.”
The man in white robe walked to stand beside Luo Feng, and Luo Feng who was seated cross-legged, was not the least bit aware.
“If I were merely a universe knight, I think I won’t ever be able to match up to Luo Feng.” The man in white robe shook his head.
He himself had an extremely solid foundation.
In terms of ability, even Huge Axe was far from being his equal; after being eternally suppressed for endless time, he grew even stronger and complete; but that was because he could do nothing else when being eternally suppressed.
“This first 2000 stages, how should I decode them?” The man in white robe walked over to the three-dimensional virtual shadow of the 2000th stage with a slight frown. He was a genius gifted with talents, and his talents were all so superior that they were unbelievable; as the virtual universe needed to meet the demands of countless living souls on a daily basis, with respect to deducing secret techniques, he was much more formidable and skillful than any other great beings.
“What kind of an existence this was, to be able to create such an unbelievable object.” The man in white robe was beside Luo Feng as he stood silently to comprehend as thoroughly as he could. The time velocity in his surroundings was maintained at ten thousand times.
As the creator of the virtual universe, he certainly had the ability to bring the rate of light velocity to reach as high as ten thousand times within that extremely small area.
Luo Feng and Teacher Origin were side by side…
Yet Luo Feng was completely unaware of the existence of Teacher Origin who was right beside him.
In the Boat of Mausoleum, within the life and death corridor, there were thousands of stone pillars with numerous three-dimensional virtual shadows; there was also a tremendous amount of crystal pillars, and every crystal pillar corresponded to one candidate.
The various great beings were comprehending in silence.
Of course, there were a few dozens of universe masters who were attacking that crimson tower, trying to disrupt Luo Feng as he cultivated. Actually, with the passing of time… Luo Feng and the batch of great beings who entered with him might have entered a year or two earlier, but because they had been constantly comprehending the Rhinoceros Emperor Game for more than 500 years, there really was not much of an advantage to speak of any further, and they did not feel that Luo Feng had that much hope, it was just to keep the attacks on him going on… normally, universe masters who got tired of comprehending who start attacking Luo Feng.
Sounds as such could always be heard, as though the sounds came from the hearts of every great being;
“What is happening?”
“Duan Dong River.”
“Look, it’s Duan Dong River.”
Right there, from universe supreme masters to undying godly sprits, close to a hundred thousand candidates looked up into mid-air where light rays converged into a lone figure, giving form to a green-haired man called Duan Dong River. He looked down and his eyes rested on that crimson tower as his voice sounded, “Candidates… Human form Milky Way has achieved the decoding requirements.”
“That human form Milky Way horde leader has met the demands?” Everyone was shocked. Right from the very beginning, if they had seen Luo Feng as a great threat, yet upon comprehending for more than 500 years, they all had shaken off the notion that Luo Feng was a great threat, because they did not believe that out of the countless great beings who joined in later, there was no one who could catch up with Luo Feng’s progress.
“Silence.” Duan Dong River’s gaze swept everyone present.
Duan Dong River looked towards the crimson tower.
Milky Way, get out here.” Duan Dong River ordered/
Shua, the crimson tower disappeared, donning a silver armor, black-haired Luo Feng stood where the tower was previously, and with a slight bow, he greeted, “My greetings, Lord Duan Dong River.”
“That is human form Milky Way horde leader.”
“Milky Way horde leader?” Those undying godly spirits’ eyes widened as they looked afar, at that dazzling figure before them.
Luo Feng was aware why Duan Dong River had appeared; not too long ago, he had completed decoding of the first 1000 stages, and the reasons to why he could be the first to succeed… firstly, because he was, indeed, very adept in comprehending, secondly, it might most probably be because he was a universe knight, so he was guessing that there were different expectations of great beings of different level of powers.
“Milky Way.” Duan Dong River looked down at Luo Feng.
Luo Feng kept his body inclined in a slight bow, paying no heed to the great beings from the various groups of powers around him, who were all filled with envy and jealousy.
“You may have satisfied the requirements, but this test still takes a long time, continue comprehending.” Duan Dong River ordered, “As you comprehend and decode more games, the more beneficial it will be for you in accepting the inheritance in future.”
“Noted.” Luo Feng replied.
“Just focus on comprehending at ease, no one can hurt you.” Duan Dong River pointed into the distance.
Beside Luo Feng, that crystal pillar suddenly released a hazy half-sphere of light shadows that resembled a gigantic hazy palace, and right away, it moved over to envelop Luo Feng. The entire light shadow palace was a picture of gold, on its surface were countless secret engravings in disarray, and just the power that the palace faintly exuded, was strong enough to send shivers into the hearts of all the great beings present.
“Whoever dares to attack human form Milky Way…” Duan Dong River’s gaze swept every single being present, “shall be eliminated and annihilated without delay.”
