Chapter 876 - The Ancient Demon Abyss

    Chapter 876 - The Ancient Demon Abyss

    "This doesn't make sense, the remaining body parts of the Divine God of Battle should be inside the South-Heaven Gate, but why is my right arm showing a reaction to it? Could it be..."

    Qin Nan's heart skipped a beat.

    He recalled that previously at the Dragon Emperor Clan, the Six-Spirited Dragon Vein had mentioned that although the Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch had used all he had to refine the Heaven-Shattering Saber, he did leave pieces of treasure somewhere in the Canglan Continent.

    Now that his right arm was showing a reaction, the only explanation was the mysterious treasure here was left by the Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch. This also explained why the two geniuses of the half-God region would come all the way here to the Skycloud Mountain Range.

    After all, a treasure left by the Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch was appealing to them too.

    "Could it be that crystal case?"

    Qin Nan followed the fiery gaze of the two geniuses and saw a half zhang wide and one zhang long crystal case. Its surface was engraved with a unique pattern, resembling a man spreading his arms toward the Heavens.



    The masked man uttered a roar, whose mouth emitted a crimson glow and absorbed the treasure into his body before the two geniuses and the Dark Tribute Progenitor could react.

    "How bold!"

    One of the geniuses had green veins surfacing on his forehead as he instantly executed a forbidden technique. He drew out an extraordinary sword, which unleashed a terrifying saber intent from its tip into the sky.

    "HAHAHA, so what if you three are siding together, you will never get your hands on the treasure, even if I have to bring them along to my death..." The masked man burst out laughing as his figure shuddered and expanded all of a sudden, flying into the distance at a rapid pace.

    "Trying to flee? Not on my watch!"

    The two geniuses and the Dark Tribute Progenitor grunted and disappeared into the horizon.

    "I have to follow them!"

    Upon seeing this, Qin Nan swiftly rose from the ground and followed after them. However, even at his full speed, he still failed to catch up to their pace, thus he could only proceed in the same direction.

    His cultivation was too weak, too insignificant in relation to theirs.

    "Who would have thought that I would find the treasure left by the Heaven-Shattering Martial Monarch here! Should I consider myself lucky or unlucky? At this rate, the masked man will surely be killed..." Qin Nan moved forward while pondered deeply.

    His instincts were telling him that he could attract the mysterious crystal case by exposing his Heaven-Shattering Saber.

    However, even if he managed to acquire the mysterious crystal case, the two geniuses of the half-God region and the Dark Tribute Progenitor could easily finish him off.

    His only hope was asking for help from the copper mirror.

    However, since the copper mirror rarely showed herself, Qin Nan decided not to bet his life on it. He could only rely on himself.

    "I'll act according to the situation!"

    Qin Nan took a deep breath. There was no point overthinking it.

    His first priority now was to locate their whereabouts. If they had left the Skycloud Mountain Range, there was nothing he could do.

    Following this, Qin Nan flew forward at full speed.

    One incense, two incense...After the period it took four incense sticks to burn, he came to a stop.

    "Luckily, they are not too far ahead."

    Qin Nan raised his head and observed the glows of impacts a distance away from him. He took a few breaths to adjust his thoughts, before proceeding forward cautiously while concealing his aura.

    "Mm? What's going on?"

    After taking a few hundred steps, Qin Nan's eyes were filled with astonishment.

    Through his observation, the surrounding trees were different than the ones he had seen before. They were entirely pitch-black, while their leaves were as sharp as razors, leaving cuts on the ground as they landed.

    Furthermore, the Hundred Barrier Mist was even more terrifying. It was now half-grey and half-black, blending and separating at times, which limited Qin Nan's vision to only a fifth of its range.

    "Is there something ahead?"

    Qin Nan's eyes flickered.

    This was the Skycloud Mountain Range, a place where even Martial Monarchs would not dare to roam freely. It went without saying that there existed other mysterious places apart from the ancient ruins.

    "A demonic aura..."

    Qin Nan straightened his face after taking a few steps forward.

    He could sense a demonic aura coming from deep within the woods, the same direction where the two geniuses and the Dark Tribute Progenitor were battling against the masked man. The aura caused the surrounding temperature to drop rapidly, such that even Qin Nan could feel the chill.

    This showed how powerful the demonic aura was, let alone its presence in the area further ahead.

    "Protection of the golden seal!"

    As a safety measure, Qin Nan quietly unleashed the power of the golden seal. The demonic aura immediately stayed away from Qin Nan as if it had encountered some frightening presence.

    Meanwhile, glows were emitted continuously in the distance, accompanied by a series of shocking explosions.

    It was highly possible that the impact of the battle had drawn the beasts away from the woods, as Qin Nan had yet to encounter one along the journey.

    After the period it took an incense stick to burn, Qin Nan halted his movements.

    Through his left eye of the Divine God of Battle, he observed the two geniuses of the half-God region and the Dark Tribute Progenitor launching their attacks at the masked man. Even with the interference of the demonic aura, their powerful attacks were able to shatter the aura entirely.

    The battle was taking place on the peak of a mountain, and behind it was an endless cliff.

    "The masked man won't be able to hold on any longer! Besides, it appears that he's not a living Martial Monarch, there's something strange about his flesh..." Qin Nan's heart shuddered as he observed the battle.

    If the masked man was defeated, the crystal case would end up in the hands of the two geniuses.

    Even if he had the Heaven-Shattering Saber, he would not dare to summon the crystal case toward him.

    Did that mean there was nothing he could do about it?

    "Oh right, where did the demonic aura come from?"

    A sudden thought crossed Qin Nan's mind.

    The demonic aura must be something extraordinary since it was able to cover such a great distance. On second thought, there must be a reason why the masked man had purposely lured his enemies here.

    "Is that--"

    Qin Nan looked for the direction of the demonic aura. Due to the battle, the aura was shattered by the impact, thus it took Qin Nan some time to find its source.

    However, when he found the source, his eyes were filled with amazement.

    The golden seal in his body began to buzz and emit a golden glow that covered his whole body to protect its bearer!
