Chapter 1064: The Saber of Justice
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Both parties stood facing each other separated by a great distance. Immediately, an intense, almost palpable lust for battle seemed to be bursting out from their saber and spear.
In Sima Jinchi’s view, Tang Wulin was just like a giant dragon that lay dormant, but could possibly burst out at any time. On the other hand, Sima Jinchi was an executioner whose savage energy was plain to see in Tang Wulin’s eyes. This was still the first time he had ever met a soul master whose martial soul was not affected by his Golden Dragon King bloodline.
Under normal circumstances, even if the opponent’s martial soul was not a dragon-type, they would still be slightly affected by his bloodline’s aura. It was inevitable.
However, that did not happen this time. The savage energy exuded from the Dragon Slaying Saber could even make the giant dragon cry tears of sadness. Not only was Tang Wulin’s Golden Dragon King Bloodline incapable of affecting the opponent, he felt like he was the one being affected to a certain degree.
Initially, Tang Wulin thought that since the opponent was a saber that slew dragons, his bloodline would certainly get enlivened by their presence and maybe even infuriated.
Yet, when he actually faced Sima Jinchi and sensed the aura emitted from his opponent’s body, he realized that this was not the case. The Dragon Slaying Saber did trigger a response from his Golden Dragon King Bloodline, but it was not negative emotions such as rage or hatred. On the contrary, it was a feeling akin to respect. It was the feeling of approval.
As the Dragon Clan’s leader, the Golden Dragon King was a part of the Dragon God! How could the Golden Dragon King react in such a manner when it was facing a Dragon Slaying Saber? What was going on here?
However, Tang Wulin could tell that the Dragon Slaying Saber in the opponent’s hand undoubtedly had a close connection to the Dragon Clan.
Sima Jinchi’s was even more surprised than Tang Wulin. Tang Wulin’s Golden Dragon King Bloodline was a martial soul in Sima Jinchi’s view and he had never seen before a dragon-type martial soul owner capable of acting so calmly before him.
The Dragon Slaying Saber was not a saber that slew dragons in fact. In reality, it was a weapon created by Dragon God for the purpose of being given to the Dragon God’s most trusted subordinate. Out of the Nine Great Dragon Kings, the Light Dragon King was the Dragon God’s favorite. Thus, the Dragon Slaying Saber was given to the Light Dragon King. The Light Dragon King was in charge of penalties and punishments within the Dragon Clan.
Hence, the Dragon Slaying Saber was actually used to behead felonious dragons and not for slaughtering all of them.
The Dragon Clan was defeated during the great war of the Divine Realm which resulted in the downfall of the Light Dragon King. The Dragon Slaying Saber also vanished from the Divine Realm soon after and dropped onto the Douluo Continent. As a divine weapon, it was silenced for many years before it transformed into an energy form and remained dormant in a corner of the continent for years.
One day, an upright and outspoken human sacrificed himself in order to maintain order when he was confronted by a formidable enemy. The Dragon Slaying Saber was awakened from its deep sleep and fused into the man’s bloodline to resurrect him.
From that point onward, the Dragon Slaying Saber martial soul was passed down through the bloodline, like an heirloom, only having one owner at a time. This was because there could only be one Dragon Slaying Saber. What a waste that there was no more Dragon Clan for it to supervise anymore.
Sima Jinchi was the current successor of the Dragon Slaying Saber martial soul. Every single inheritor of the Dragon Slaying Saber was an unyielding and honorable person who could not tolerate injustice. The Dragon Slaying Saber was genuinely one of the most powerful weapons of its generation too.
Tang Wulin inherited the Golden Dragon King Bloodline and became a part of the Dragon God, so of course, he would not yield to the Dragon Slaying Saber easily. However, Tang Wulin had a reverent feeling toward the Dragon Clan’s sense of justice brought by the Dragon Slaying Saber. This was the reason why Tang Wulin felt such a peculiar feeling in his heart earlier.
The referee took a look at both parties, but he did not speak anymore before he announced the start of the match. This match would be the greatest collision since the competition began.
The Blood God Army, the Southern Army Corps, the Shrek Seven Monsters paid and the majority of the people watching soul screens all over the Federation paid close attention to this contest between two elite powerhouses.
Tang Wulin and Sima Jinchi had yet to attack each other, but they raised their weapons almost simultaneously.
Tang Wulin held the Golden Dragon Spear in his hand as a dash of gold appeared on every inch of him. A pair of golden dragon wings spread out behind his back. Soon after, speckles of golden radiance were glowing all over his body as his two-word battle armor, Dragon Moon, attached to him.
His figure instantly grew to a height of three meters as his Golden Dragon Spear swelled as well. A powerful and intense spear’s consciousness rippled and spread out from the tip of the spear. The aura of Tang Wulin’s entire person increased exponentially as well.
Dragon’s roars like thunder burst out from his body as diamond-shaped Golden Dragon’s scales shimmered with dazzling radiance and piercing bright light.
Tang Wulin shifted his gaze and let out a loud roar into the sky. He raised the Golden Dragon Spear in his hand high into the air as his dragon’s roar suddenly became louder. The dragon wings on his back spread open and lifted his body off the ground. His aura was continued to grow rapidly, without stopping.
Sima Jinchi on the opposite side held the enormous Dragon Slaying Saber in his right hand horizontally across the side of his body. Soul rings arose from beneath his feet, revealing four purple and four black rings. His aura was also increasing similarly as if a puff of dark clouds spread out from his side. The surrounding space seemed to be shaking mildly as if it was unable to withstand the terrifying pressure. The very air appeared to be cracking.
A layer of black mist covered the Dragon Slaying Saber. The mournful cries of the Dragon Clan were heard echoing from the saber.
The Dragon Slaying Saber was still the saber of justice. It was honorable and righteous, glorious and conscientious. The dragons crying sorrowfully were the souls of those from the Dragon Clan that committed heavy crimes. These Dragon Clan’s dragon souls were suppressed by the sharpness of the saber for countless years. Every time the Dragon Slaying Saber was used, the sound it made would exercise great influence over the people of ill intent such that their mental state would be affected.
What a waste that the effect was useless against Tang Wulin. His heart was righteous, so on the contrary, the agonizing scream was actually pleasing to his ears.
In the eyes of the audience, both of them seemed to have already turned into mountains, one black while the other was golden. Both were still soaring valiantly such that the space across the entire competition stage was shaking mildly.
Meanwhile, in the Blood God Battalion…
“It’s said that the Star Dou Battle Network is incapable of withstanding battles of three-word battle armor and above, hence the restriction. I’m afraid that this match between these two will already exceed that. I wonder if the Star Dou Cabin and the Star Dou Battle Network are capable of withstanding it.” Zhang Huanyun frowned deeply.
Cao Dezhi spoke, “I’m sure that the system has been reinforced. A similar situation has already happened in the competition earlier. The Federation will certainly reinforce the battlefield on a large scale for the final few rounds of the competition. It’s a little difficult to comment on the Star Dou Cabin, though. We’ll see.”
Zhang Huanyun said, “The Star Dou Battle Network is genuinely a masterpiece of modern technology, but there’s still a long way to go before it can truly become a part of our lives. This year’s competition appears advanced, but in reality, there are a lot of problems that arise from the battle network. I think that the system will enter its research and development phase once again after the competition has ended. I wonder when they will release a better version. There are still too many things to improve on whether it’s the hardware or the system.”
Cao Dezhi agreed and said, “It is so. However, the Star Dou Battle Network’s appearance is already astonishing enough for old people like us. We shall wait and see then. In fact, it will not be long before the Federation’s technological development arrives at a bottleneck. The Federation invests even more energy into the quest of searching in outer space due to the deficiency of resources. It’s only possible for the Federation to continue to sustain itself after it has found brand-new planets with sufficient resources.”
Zhang Huanyun heaved a sigh. “But these people are not thinking like that. In their perception, there’s still quite a lot of resources which can be exploited on the Star Luo Planet. Dou Spirit and Star Luo are closer targets that are much easier to seize compared to the gamble of space exploration. Meanwhile, ever since Shrek Academy was destroyed, the voices calling for war are growing louder and louder. In my view, it will not take long now before it begins.”
Cao Dezhi frowned deeply. “Every war happens because of someone’s greed for profits. In the meantime, it’s the common people who suffer. This is also the reason why I hope that the army can support Tang Wulin’s efforts in future. The internal feuds between mankind are not something our Blood God Army should take part in regardless.”
