side. He inwardly sighed that even the God Race had such a “bold and unrestrained” character. It didn’t even say hello ,or give its inheritor any time to react as it charged to him directly. It was really quite brutal.

Shen Yanxiao was also a little shocked. The godhood that chose Tang Nazhi obviously had a

completely different personality than the ones that had chosen Yang Xi and Yan Yu. The Thunder God and the Moon God both stayed in front of their inheritors first, making them realize that they had been selected before they slowly waited for their inheritors to accept their choice. However,

the godhood that selected Tang Nazhi was just great. Regardless of whether Tang Nazhi accepted it or not, he directly went up to carry out the selection!

This temperament was really similar to Tang Nazhi.

“Xiu, whose godhood is that?” Shen Yanxiao looked up at Xiu and asked. Was such a fiery character really something the God Race should have?

“Fire God.” Xiu lightly answered.

The corners of Shen Siyu’s mouth lifted up as he glanced at the Dragon God nearby. “The Fire God

is the most, or second most, impetuous god in the Sky City. The Fire God and Dragon God can be

said to be the strangest existences in the Sky City.”

The character of the gods was mostly cold and cheerless. There were so few like the Dragon God. The only one who could match the Dragon God’s energy was the one in charge of the power of fire. Shortly after the Dragon God entered the Sky City, these two unreliable superior gods, who shared

similar temperaments, fought a vigorous match in the Sky City. This was also the root of the Dragon God’s addiction to challenge superior gods in a fight. Unfortunately, the Fire God had been a god for a long time. After the fight with the Dragon God, he was summoned by the Lord God and given a full education once again. Since then, he had never moved his hands against the Dragon God and continued to act as his superior. About this matter, the Dragon God was very regretful.

If the Fire God had not been educated by the Lord God, perhaps they would have become a good

pair of companions sweeping the Sky City, and he would not have been tricked into finding the War God by the two-faced Light God because of the “unbearable loneliness”. Shadow and Sudden Attack

The one who was sent flying so impressively was obviously Geiger Dole. He now had three cauterized slashes on his body, obviously an injury from the lightning claws of the Berserk Boltbear. Afterwards, Geiger was dragged out by it, curled up into a ball.

A powerful force rippled through the area once more, suppressing the lightning burns that Geiger Dole had sustained. “Get away!” he screamed, spiritual force sweeping out to send a few guards flying immediately. Blood and brain juices began to leak from their eyes and ears, pouring out like a flood.

Many Sacrificers liked to draw the support of offerings to suppress their injuries.

“Thinking of leaving?” The Elias governor’s eyes flashed ominously, “Summon- Nighthawk!”

An enormous tattoo of a black hawk suddenly emerged from his forehead. The large hawk was so vivid it seemed alive, and after the governor issued a command the beast spirit instantly transformed into a streak of light. A high-pitched cry sounded out as it soared into the air, its enormous wings spreading to blot out the skies.

‘Hmm? This beast spirit…’ Leylin was amongst the onlookers in the distance, wrapped up tightly in a black cloak as he watched the battle attentively with his blue eyes.

‘A giant beast at Morning Star! It looks like the governor isn’t simply playing around…’ Leylin knew very well that the governor was at least rank 4. The Berserk Boltbear he had previously summoned had only been rank 3, and it was obviously used to toy with Geiger and Geiger Dole.

No, instead he had not even taken notice of them. He was far more interested in the depths of the warehouse, and in the hidden presence in the cellar.

Leylin could sense a terrifying bloodline force hiding deep underground that was even draining most of the governor’s strength.

As it were, the strength of a Morning Star was not something an elder like Geiger Dole could withstand. With a high-pitched cry, a pair of black wings streaked past Geiger Dole like a sharp blade, destroying the sacrificial spell formation behind him.

Losing its communication link, no matter how unwilling it was the figure of the large eye could only slowly dissipate. Geiger Dole crumpled to the ground. Having lost his dignitary’s support, the frailty and injuries from the battle had resurfaced. His tendrils began to pale, the colour spreading until it reached Geiger Dole’s eyes.

‘Such temporary strength has a lot of flaws…’ Leylin watched on from the sidelines, leisurely commanding the A.I. Chip to gather data. He was making use of this time to analyse the pros and cons of the power systems of the Purgatory World.

‘The path of offerings is limited in the strength it can supply. No matter how powerful the Sacrificer is, such power is only borrowed. Once the communication is broken or the dignitary retreats, the Sacrificer will be trapped in a dire situation…’

Leylin’s eyes flickered, ‘The information shows that there are some who obtain a permanent bonus to their strength or racial upgrades. However, those require huge sacrifices and even require completing specific missions, such as offering blood sacrifices of higher-ups from an enemy organisation.’

The path of offerings seemed very primal to Leylin. He was even beginning to suspect that this system was the original path to power in the Purgatory World.

‘In that case…’ Leylin stroked his chin, suddenly thinking of other aspects, ‘I’ll probably need to dabble in the training the path of offerings. No, it can’t be superficial. I need to be proficient in it in order to complete my final plan!’

The hawk’s cry sounded once more at this moment, and outside the warehouse the hawk soaring into the air descended like a victor, its sharp metallic talons ripping Geiger Dole to shreds.

“AAAAH! FATHER!” Geiger cried out pitifully, but couldn’t escape his own fate of death.

Seeing the two Beholders perish one after the other, Leylin’s expression did not change at all. Everything that had happened was obviously a result of the information he’d spread to the governor and his troops in secret. He’d mostly done it because Geiger Dole had made a futile attempt at putting Leylin in an unfavourable situation. No matter how pitiful the two ended up, Leylin wasn’t moved the slightest in his heart.

On the contrary, he was here personally so that he could see what happened, and remove all chances of Geiger Dole’s survival. Even if he had managed to escape, Leylin would’ve acted afterwards.

Seeing the soul undulations of the two being extinguished completely, Leylin could relax slightly. At the very least, there was now nobody who remembered him. He was now focused on the black figure in the shadows.

‘That person was clearly Geiger Dole’s superior. They are unusually powerful and have been laying low all this time, waiting for the most opportune moment to strike.’ Leylin surveyed his surroundings. With Geiger Dole’s death, the merfolk sailors soon lost all willpower to fight on and sank to their knees, begging for mercy.

At the anchoring point of the port nearby, the Beholder tribe’s ship was already completely surrounded and had surrendered. The giant Godric was already floating on the surface of the water, rolled over and revealing its white belly.

‘It’s all settled. If it were me, this would be the best chance!’ Leylin’s eyes were fixed coldly on the warehouse.

At that moment, a deafening bang sounded out. Leylin could sense that the black shadow had finally made its move!

Rocks and earth flew everywhere the moment it acted, turning into marbles in the sky that fired into the surrounding area.

*Thud! Thud! Thud!* These marbles formed of soil and rocks possessed a kinetic energy so immense that they could even penetrate through steel armour. A large number of guards fell with a miserable cry. Blood flowed out profusely from their wounds.

“Kill them!” A black cloak flew into the air, and a white figure was like an illusion as it arrived in front of the Elias governor so fast it was hard to see with the naked eye. Sharp fingernails tipped the scale-covered hand that sprung forth.

The governor’s beast spirit was currently outside, so he lacked his most powerful defence.

“Monkdarse Turtle!” Dark rays appeared at the Elias governor’s chest, and immediately after a dark turtle shell emerged to block the area in front of him. Mysterious patterns appeared on the shell, and it emitted a metallic feeling that made it seem indestructible.

Beast spirit masters could not only summon beast spirits to battle, but could also use part of the abilities of the beast spirits that had been sealed into their bodies.

The Monkdarse Turtle was a marine beast known for its defence, but the strongest ones were at the peak of rank 3. Still, although the Elias governor wanted to summon something more powerful, he had no beast spirits that were more formidable.

Beast spirit magic was a common strength system in the Purgatory World, and almost all intellectual races had their hand in this. Beast spirit masters were divided based on ranking, from rank 1 to the legendary rank 9!

However, in the Purgatory World now, masters at rank 6, 7 and above had been consigned to legend.

The requirements for each beast spirit master to advance were simple. One had to seal enough powerful beast spirits and have enough soul force to control the sealed beast spirits. However, beast spirit masters that wanted to advance in rank needed to subdue a beast spirit of a similar rank.

To advance to a rank 7 beast spirit master, it was necessary to subdue the soul of a rank 7 beast with laws, and seal it into one’s body. Only the dignitaries of the various continents possessed such a strength in this world, which made it practically impossible. Just the thought of extracting the Snake Dowager’s soul and sealing it into their body would leave a beast spirit master quivering in fear.

A rank 1 beast spirit master could at most only control a rank 1 beast spirit, while a rank 2 could control a rank 2 beast spirit. As long as one was powerful enough and one’s soul could take the stress, there was no issue with sealing multiple beast spirits into one’s body.

However, it was evident that the Elias governor was a newly promoted rank 4 beast spirit master. The most powerful creature it had was the rank 4 Nighthawk beast spirit. The others were at rank 1 or 2 and wouldn’t be brought out, because they would only bring shame to him.

This rank 3 Monkdarse Turtle was the most powerful beast spirit he had left.

From Leylin’s perspective, a beast spirit master was very much like a summoner. Though the beast spirits that could be controlled were powerful, the master was a weak point.

‘No! Rather, a newly advanced beast spirit master is at a weak point. The largest difference between a beast spirit master and a summoner is that beast spirit masters can seal beast spirits into their bodies, and make use of some of the abilities of a beast spirit. If they bide their time and seal enough spirits, they’ll gain a lot of power.’ Leylin touched his chin, ‘The beast spirits sealed inside the body can constantly nourish the beast spirit master’s own body and soul. As long as no bottleneck is reached, he can keep advancing!’

*Crash!* With just one attack from the palm covered in alabaster scales, the turtle shell in front of the governor began to fragment, showing its powerful strength.

Whether it was the Berserk Boltbear or the Nighthawk from before, even if they were hurrying over they were still a distance away. The governor was in a very dire situation.

However, Leylin merely watched on coldly, not having any plans to make his move. In his opinion, the governor had obviously discovered the other party and still sent out his Nighthawk, evidently having plans of his own.

“Die!” A low voice that was distinctly feminine came from the person who had launched the sneak attack. The figure of a white python suddenly appeared, emitting a bloodline aura that caused Leylin’s pupils to shrink. Chapter 2538: The Choice of Two Godhoods (1)

After Tang Nazhi, Yang Xi, and Yan Yu, Li Xiaowei became the fourth one to be selected. He was

chosen by the Wind God in a very gentle way and was not as impatient as the Fire God. Qi Xia was now the only one of the five young men of Phantom who had not yet been selected.

The godhoods were very quiet at this time. They seemed to be still making choices and remained motionless. Qi Xia was not impatient either. He just stood there and waited quietly. As time went by, Xiu’s eyebrows slightly wrinkled.

Shen Yanxiao sensed Xiu’s reaction and quietly pulled Xiu’s sleeve.

“What’s the problem?”

Xiu bowed his head and said, “Normally, the godhood’s selection won’t take too long. Tang Nazhi and the others have had a normal selection period, but there is something wrong with Qi Xia’s

situation. This is beyond the normal limit. The godhoods must have encountered some problems in

the process of choosing.” A large part of the conditions of the godhoods for selecting their inheritor was extracted from the God Race’s test that had been passed by the inheritor candidates. During the course of the test, the

godhood had already figured out the character and ability of the inheritor candidates. What they had to do now was to select the most suitable match from them, which was not difficult. However,

there was no movement on Qi Xia’s side. All the godhoods became unusually quiet, just like when

Shen Yanxiao had just entered the temple.

This kind of situation was very peculiar; there must be something wrong.

“Let’s wait and see.” Shen Siyu opened his mouth. Shortly after Shen Yanxiao left the Radiance Continent, Qi Xia had gone to the God’s Domain. It could be said that during the time Shen Yanxiao was away from the mainland, Shen Siyu had been guiding Qi Xia’s cultivation. Shen Siyu also knew a bit about Qi Xia’s talent, ability, and intelligence. Among the Phantom members, aside from Shen Yanxiao, Qi Xia had the strongest talent. His wisdom was also quite extraordinary and definitely not beneath Shen Yanxiao’s. Thus, Shen Siyu was extremely optimistic about Qi Xia. After waiting for another moment, the godhoods finally displayed some movements. But this movement stunned everyone.

They saw two godhoods flying towards Qi Xia at the same time; one floated on his left and the other on his right.

“Two godhoods? What does this mean?” Shen Yanxiao was a little dumbfounded.

Xiu looked at the two godhoods and his eyebrows wrinkled a bit more.

“Can Qi Xia inherit the godhoods of two superior gods?” Shen Yanxiao’s eyes lit up at this moment. She was very clear about Qi Xia’s ability. Shen Yanxiao would not be surprised at all if he could do

something heaven-defying. However, Xiu shook his head.

“No matter how powerful a human being is, he can only inherit the godhood of one superior god.”

The godhoods contained most of the divine powers of the superior gods. It was difficult for the human body to bear the inheritance of a godhood to begin with. If the physical quality and mental strength were not enough, it was feared that they could not bear the inheritance of a godhood at all. Even the strongest man in the Human Race would not be able to stand the inheritance of two

superior gods; if one tried, he would definitely explode and die.

“Qi Xia’s situation is not about inheriting the godhoods of two superior gods, but that he has been

chosen by two godhoods at the same time and he must choose one of them to inherit.” Xiu’s eyebrows didn’t loosen and he didn’t relax because Qi Xia had one more choice.

“Is this not a good thing?” Shen Yanxiao looked at Xiu’s frowning brows and felt that things might not be as simple as she thought. Otherwise, why would Xiu be frowning? Ch. 2539: The Choice of Two Godhoods (2)

Note: The underworld and the netherworld in this story are two dierent worlds. Underworld is where Satan or the Devil Race resides and is still a part of this story’s world, while the netherworld

is a completely dierent world where dead souls are guided to.

“Good thing?” Shen Siyu revealed a wry smile and looked at the two godhoods oating in front of Qi Xia helplessly. “If it were the godhoods of other superior gods then it would really be a good thing, but the gods that these two godhoods belong to… why was Qi Xia chosen by them? No wonder it

took so long; so, it was like this.”

Shen Yanxiao was confused. She vaguely guessed that it might be a good thing to be selected by

two godhoods, but the thing that was making Xiu frown were the two godhoods that had selected Qi Xia.

“Which superior gods did they belong to?” Qi Xia saw that the atmosphere was somewhat solemn

and felt a bit curious. His companions did not encounter any problems during the godhood’s

selection, but why was there a sudden change when it was his turn?

“Death God and Killing God.” Xiu coldly spat out two names that made people tremble with fear. Death God.

This superior god, who was in charge of collecting the souls of the deceased, was not a true member of the God Race in any real sense. Although he had a divine body and a godhood, the power he possessed was not divine power but the power of the king of the netherworld. On the Radiance Continent, there were legends about many superior gods, but the legends about this Death God always made people’s hair stand on end. According to rumors, when the Death God came, there would always be terrible disasters. Each

vivid life would die, and their souls would be guided by the Death God into the netherworld.

The Death God was not a god created by the Lord God. He came from the netherworld. After the

Lord God and the Devil God created all things in the world, the Death God crossed the door of the netherworld and entered this world. He was responsible for harvesting the souls of all things in the world. Even the Lord God could not order the Death God to do anything. He did not listen to

anyone’s command. He was only in charge of guiding the souls of the deceased.

In many places, people did not classify the Death God as a god, but separated him as the emissary of the netherworld. He made people dread and left them scared. All the records about the Death God were always inseparable from death.

Most importantly, this dude was from the Boundless World. If he was the Nan Bei Chao of Saint Origin World, he would have attacked the moment he saw Jiang Chen without saying a word.
