ETERNAL MARTIAL EMPEROR, VOLUME 7 - Season 20 Episode 70
Su Zimo was extremely cautious and did not advance rashly. Instead, he controlled the Hell Suppression Tripod and approached the small mountain of Dharmic treasures in the distance.
The moment the Hell Suppression Tripod approached the Dharmic treasures, a few more wisps of ghastly green ghost flames floated out from King Feng Xuan’s corpse.
The ghost flames seemed to possess some sort of sentience and would float out to incinerate any external objects that approached!
Su Zimo controlled the Hell Suppression Tripod and did not dodge. Instead, he charged towards the ghost flames.
When the ghost flames landed on the outer wall of the Hell Suppression Tripod, they were absorbed by the Vermilion Bird Sacred Soul before the flames could spread and vanished!
The Hell Suppression Tripod continued forward and collided against the small mountain of Dharmic treasures before it. Instantly, the Dharmic treasures collapsed and scattered everywhere.
A powerful suction force burst forth from the Hell Suppression Tripod. Among the 10,000 Dharmic treasures, 1,000 weapons were selected and pulled into the Hell Suppression Tripod!
Those weapons were sentient Dharmic treasures!
After a sentient Dharmic treasure passed through the Heavenly Tribulation, it would gain sentience and the material of the Dharmic treasure would transform. Even if it was crippled and lost its sentience, this scrap material was of great use to the Hell Suppression Tripod!
If he were to refine all the spirit treasures, there was a high chance he could repair the third wall of the Hell Suppression Tripod!
If he could repair the third tripod wall, not only could the third sacred soul awaken, the Prajna Nirvana Sutra would be even more complete as well.
Whether or not Su Zimo could find the jade talisman for this trip to the Emperor’s Tomb, he had already gained enough by now.
If not for this Emperor’s Tomb, who knew how long it would take to collect so many spirit treasures.
An extremely terrifying heat burst forth from the Hell Suppression Tripod and melted all the spirit treasures that were dragged in, turning them into red molten metal before long!
Su Zimo discovered that there were also some strange green bubbles mixed in the molten metal.
If he was not wrong, those green bubbles were the curse of the Emperor’s Tomb!
With the curse of the Emperor’s Tomb, it might take even longer for the Hell Suppression Tripod to refine and absorb all the spirit treasures.
Su Zimo was in no rush.
At the very least, there was no need for the Hell Suppression Tripod in the Emperor’s Tomb for the time being.
About two hours later, Su Zimo waited for the Hell Suppression Tripod to devour the 1,000 spirit treasures before putting it away and chasing in the direction of Tang Ziyi and the others.
This time round, Su Zimo released his spirit perception and sped up. Before long, he caught sight of Tang Ziyi and the others.
Initially, there were more than 90 people when they parted ways.
In just two hours, there were only slightly more than 50 people left in the group!
Of the remaining cultivators, apart from Tang Ziyi, the others were pale with fear, as though they had suffered immense shock.
Su Zimo chased and asked with a frown.
Someone gulped and said with lingering fear, “We passed by a white bones ruin earlier on. Who would have thought that the white bones would come to life and start a massacre. We can’t defeat them and many of us died. Some of us were even hunted down by the white bones and they’re probably doomed.”
Most of the cultivators who died here were former experts.
The corpses left behind would not rot for millions of years. If they were reanimated, even Heaven Immortals might not be able to defend against them, let alone Black Immortals.
“I want to go back! I don’t want to die!”
A cultivator clutched the wound on his abdomen with a pale expression. He was on the brink of a mental breakdown and muttered repeatedly.
“You won’t be able to return without me!”
The skinny old man harrumphed coldly.
“I don’t want to continue walking or look for any jade talisman anymore. You guys can continue looking for it on your own!”
The person said with a horrified expression as he retreated, wanting to return the way he came.
However, he had barely taken a few steps when his body began to stagger. Arching his body, he clutched his abdomen with both hands and let out a deep growl, as though he was enduring immense pain.
Immediately after, the person fell to the ground and the blood flowing out of the wound on his abdomen turned green as his skin rotted!
After a series of tragic cries, the person was unrecognizable and his lifeforce was extinguished.
The fat old man seemed to have a sense of trepidation as well. “The corpses in the Emperor’s Tomb are stained with the curse of the Emperor’s Tomb all year round. Even an unassuming bone fragment is a great killing weapon! Anyone injured by those corpses will definitely die!”
Tang Ziyi glanced at that person before retracting her gaze.
Although she was still expressionless, she still felt her heart skip a beat when she saw that.
Su Zimo sent a voice transmission, “How did those white bones come to life?”
Tang Ziyi said, “The Emperor’s Tomb is filled with the power of curses all year round. However, after millions of years of evolution, some strange living beings were born.”
“These living beings are tiny and difficult to detect. Although they are extremely weak, they can attach themselves to the white bones and control them to fight.”
There were all sorts of things in the vast world.
Many living beings were born in special environments and strange worlds.
The living beings that Tang Ziyi mentioned could survive in the environment of the Emperor’s Tomb. However, there was a high chance that they would not be able to survive a single day outside!
After a moment of silence, Tang Ziyi continued, “The greatest threat in the Emperor’s Tomb is not these strange living beings, but some Ghost Immortals!”
Su Zimo was shocked.
Although this was the first time he heard about Ghost Immortals, he already had a rough understanding.
Ghost Immortals were similar to the otherworldly soldiers of Tianhuang Mainland.
These were cultivators who met with undeserved calamities or the descent of bad luck. As their vengeance, resentment and grievances accumulated over a long period of time, the Ghost Immortals would be condensed.
None of the experts who entered the Emperor’s Tomb were spared—it was clear how strong the resentment of those experts was!
Tang Ziyi continued, “The Ghost Immortals in the Emperor’s Tomb are even more terrifying because they are still tainted by the curse of the Emperor’s Tomb. We can’t even touch them, let alone fight them.”
Su Zimo’s expression turned grim.
This Emperor’s Tomb was even more terrifying than he had imagined!
If he was unlucky and encountered any Ghost Immortal, he might die here!
The fat and skinny old men had grim expressions as well.
The two of them had not expected that they would lose close to half of their cultivators in less than a day after entering the Emperor’s Tomb!
At this rate, it would be impossible for him to survive a month in the Emperor’s Tomb, let alone search for the jade talisman.
“Everyone, follow closely. Don’t act on your own this time round!”
The skinny old man glared at Su Zimo and said sternly.
The fat old man determined the direction and led everyone forward.
Before long, a green fog appeared in front of everyone and enveloped them!
“It’s the curse fog! Run!”
The fat old man’s expression changed starkly as he shrieked!
Before his sentence was finished, Tang Ziyi had already recognized the origin of the green fog and sped towards the back.
In their panic, everyone moved as well.
