Chapter 2024: The Neptunean Divine Palace (Two)
Jian Chen could not help but grow curious about the Neptunean Divine Palace now that he had heard of it again.
“Sir, this is the first time we’ve come here, and it is also the first time we’ve heard of the Neptunean Divine Palace. May I ask what kind of place this Neptunean Divine Palace is such that it receives so much of your attention?” Jian Chen asked with a clasped fist.
Yun Lianqing was immediately surprised when he heard that the three of them had no idea what the Neptunean Divine Palace was at all. However, he soon seemed to think of something, and he immediately grew enthusiastic. He looked at Jian Chen and Kai Ya and said, “Since you don’t know what the Neptunean Divine Palace is, allow me to explain its origins.”
Yun Lianqing paused there. He looked at the vast space outside and checked over his memories. Only after tidying up his thoughts did he say, “The Neptunean Divine Palace has existed for far longer than the history of our Yun family, so our understanding of the place also comes from information collected through various means in the Saints’ World and some rumors.”
“There’s an extremely ancient rumor in the Saints’ World that an extremely powerful sect used to be on the Heniu Plane. This sect was called the Daoist Sect of Neptunea. The sect was extremely powerful, not only possessing millions of disciples, but they also had four supreme experts. These four experts were all Grand Primes, and they were known as the four great ancestors of the Daoist Sect of Neptunea!”
The light in Yun Lianqing’s eyes changed. Even with his mental fortitude as a Godking, he struggled to remain calm at that moment. His breathing became slightly ragged as obvious respect and eagerness appeared in his eyes. He said in amazement, “Grand Primes are existences who stand at the very apex of the Saints’ World. People like them can destroy a single eternal empire or sect with a wave of their hand, yet there was a total of four of them in the sect. You should be able to see just how terrifyingly powerful the Daoist Sect of Neptunea was from that.”
“A sect that actually had four Grand Primes. This Daoist Sect of Neptunea really is terrifying,” Jian Chen could not help but sigh in amazement as well.
“The Daoist Sect of Neptunea. The Daoist Sect of Neptunea…” Master Chanlong murmured to himself as he seemed to be recalling his memories. For some reason, he experienced another sense of familiarity when he heard the name of the sect as if he had heard it before, but he could not remember when or how.
“That’s not all of it. There’s a rumor from millions of years ago in the Saints’ World that one of the four ancestors reached the peak of Grand Prime, only a single step away from Grand Exalt. They were known as one of the most powerful people below Grand Exalt,” Yun Lianqing sighed in amazement as his emotions swelled. As a Godking, he struggled to remain calm when he mentioned these paramount existences.
“Sir, it seems like the Daoist Sect of Neptunea is related to the Neptunean Divine Palace, right?” Jian Chen asked curiously.
Yun Lianqing nodded, “Indeed, they are related. This is because the Neptunean Divine Palace is the supreme divine hall of the Daoist Sect of Neptunea as well as the only remaining object from the Daoist Sect of Neptunea.”
Jian Chen was stunned. He asked, “The only object remaining? Was the Daoist Sect of Neptunea destroyed?”
“Sigh,” Yun Lianqing let out a long exhale. He said, “Yeah, they were destroyed. The powerful Daoist Sect of Neptunea was actually destroyed. It was said that they were destroyed by an unimaginably terrifying existence. It’s quite unbelievable whenever I mention it.”
Jian Chen gasped. The Daoist Sect of Neptunea had a total of four Grand Primes, and one of them was even one of the most powerful people below Grand Exalt. With such a powerful group of people, a single person actually destroyed them. This was just far too shocking.
Yun Lianqing continued, “You’d think that the Daoist Sect of Neptunea was destroyed by the legendary Grand Exalts of our Saints’ World, but that’s not the case because there’s a rumor that has withstood the test of time. It’s said that the sect’s destruction was not caused by the Grand Exalts of our Saints’ World, but a supreme expert from another world.”
Jian Chen’s heart shivered when he heard that. He immediately thought of the Immortals’ World when another world was mentioned.
This was because only the Immortals’ World possessed such strength from his understanding.
After all, the Immortals’ World also had five Grand Exalts, and they had even fought a war with the Saints’ World. Several Grand Exalts had fallen during that clash.
“The Immortals’ World!” Jian Chen thought. Although he was in the Saints’ World right now, he technically belonged to the Immortals’ World because the legacy he had obtained came from the Immortals’ World, and so did the sword spirits.
Yun Lianqing sucked in a deep breath and said, “Our Yun family has only been established for a little over a million years, so our heritage isn’t particularly great. As a result, we don’t possess a lot of information, and we naturally can’t verify this information either. It’s just rumored that the other world is a place called the Immortals’ World.”
“It’s said that the Immortals’ World is an extremely powerful world, similar to our Saints’ World in strength. The expert who destroyed the Daoist Sect of Neptunea is a terrifying existence called the Samsaric Immortal Exalt. Even with the Daoist Sect of Neptunea’s full strength, they were not his opponent.”
Chanlong’s eyes became even more lost when he heard the mention of the Samsaric Immortal Exalt. He also felt that this name was somewhat familiar.
He was not the only one. Even the trapped soul in his Space Ring felt the same.
“Who is the Samsaric Immortal Exalt? Have we seen him before? No, I’ve never heard of a person like this before, much less see them,” the trapped soul murmured secretly.
Yun Lianqing continued, “This is because the Samsaric Immortal Exalt is no weaker than the Grand Exalts of our world. He’s also an existence that has become a part of the universe, making him extremely terrifying.”
“Before the Daoist Sect of Neptunea was destroyed, all the experts of the sect hid in the Neptunean Divine Palace. However, the Samsaric Immortal Exalt controlled the power of samsara. He could rule over the universe and forcefully reverse yin and yang. He sent all the experts hidden within the Neptunean Divine Palace into samsara.”
“However, whether they do go through samsara is not up to the Samsaric Immortal Exalt to decide. As a result, although it was said that all the people of the Neptunean Divine Palace were sent into samsara, none of them had the chance to reincarnate in reality. They were completely killed off.”
“However, before the experts of the sect died, they left behind their legacies in the Neptunean Divine Palace. It’s said that just when the Samsaric Immortal Exalt wanted to destroy the Neptunean Divine Hall, a Grand Exalt of our world appeared.”
“Afterwards, the Neptunean Divine Palace remained. But due to the formations there, it would only open once every ten thousand years. Additionally, due to the many legacies left behind by the experts of the Daoist Sect of Neptunea before they passed away, it has become a land of fortune for the cultivators of our Saints’ World.” Yun Lianqing looked at the three of them and said, “And now, you know the origins of the Neptunean Divine Palace.”
Jian Chen exhaled deeply and said, “I never thought the Neptunean Divine Palace would have gone through something like that. The strength of the Samsaric Immortal Exalt sure is astonishing. He was actually able to destroy a sect as powerful as the Daoist Sect of Neptunea all by himself with so much ease. Grand Exalts truly are powerful and terrifying.”
“Moreover, the Grand Exalt of the Saints’ World only appeared after he had slaughtered the entire sect. That means he had an extremely short amount of time to kill everybody.”
Jian Chen slowly calmed down. He stared at Yun Lianqing with great interest as he asked calmly, “When you first met us, you thought we were going to the Neptunean Divine Palace. Is it opening once again?”
“That’s right. The date when it opens is indeed drawing close. It’ll open again soon. However, not everyone can enter the Neptunean Divine Palace. You need to be Godking or below, and once you surpass Godking, you won’t be able to enter.” Yun Lianqing had already recovered. He looked at Jian Chen’s group and continued, “Moreover, you need to possess a Neptunean Medallion to enter. That’s the key to the Neptunean Divine Palace.”
