    Chapter 315: Outside Grand Dominance City

    Translator: CKtalon  Editor: CKtalon

    The mysterious murderer had silently slaughtered nearly two hundred thousand people across the world in half a month. The killing spree attracted the attention of numerous experts including Qin Yun and Hong Lingtong.

    However, such situations were actually rather common throughout history. Especially before Qin Yun swept away the fiendish demons of the world, it was not rare for a fiendish demon to gather the flesh and blood of a hundred to two hundred thousand humans in a short period of time in order to make sacrifices. Of course, such brazen violence would earn the relentless pursuit of the imperial government and the Inspector Heavenly Alliance.

    However, that this mysterious murderer remained mysterious shocked the world.

    "About a hundred and eighty thousand commoners of Maple Provincial City in Lu Prefecture's North Xuan County died. All of them were sucked dry of their flesh and blood." This news rapidly spread throughout factions of all sizes in the world. Every cultivator was dumbfounded.

    "He decimated an entire provincial city?"

    Qin Yun's expression contorted when he read the news.

    "A provincial city with nearly a hundred and eighty thousand residents in it. It would take some time to slaughter them all. Yet, no one discovered him despite how long he must have taken?" Yi Xiao could not help but comment.

    "According to the information given to me by the Inspector Heavenly Alliance, their investigations indicate that the entire slaughtering process took less than ten minutes," said Qin Yun gloomily. "He was able to suck a hundred and eighty thousand humans of their flesh and blood in such a short period of time. Even a Paramount realm great fiendish demon is incapable of such a feat."

    "If a Paramount realm fiendish demon can't do it, who can" asked Yi Xiao. "Is it a fiendcelestial? But fiendcelestials are restrained by the Heavenly rules. They wouldn't dare do such a thing."

    "I do not know." Qin Yun shook his head gently. "I do not know who the murderer is or what his background is."

    Qin Yun's eyes burned with killing intent. The mysterious murderer had further enraged Qin Yun.

    ...

    At the Imperial Capital, in the royal palace.

    A white-haired elder sat cross-legged in a quiet hall. To his side stood Human Emperor.

    "Lunatic Wang," said Human Emperor in a heavy tone. "You have to divine again. You have to figure out the murderer's identity."

    "He dared to slaughter an entire provincial city." The white-haired elder opened his eyes. Although he was very old, his eyes had a bright luster to them. He smiled as he looked at Human Emperor. "Your Majesty, even you are anxious over this."

    "To dare slaughter with such abandon, it has to be a mortal fiendish demon. However, he managed to drain nearly a hundred and eighty thousand humans of their flesh and blood in ten minutes... That is strength at the fiendcelestial level. I feel uneasy about the appearance of such a mysterious murderer," said Human Emperor in a deep tone.

    The white-haired elder was alarmed. "Your Majesty, if you can feel a vague sense of unease at your level, it might be a warning from the Heavenly Dao. Alright, I'll do my best to infer again."

    With a flip of his hand, a jade disc appeared in his hand. He began his divination with the aid of a treasure.

    Hum!

    The phantom of a gigantic jade disc appeared around him. Many faint scenes flashed across the phantom.

    "Oh?" The white-haired elder's face gradually flushed red.

    "Come on out."

    He tried his best as his face turned redder, to the point that wisps of hot air steamed out of his body.

    "Pfft!"

    Finally, the white-haired elder spat out a mouthful of blood, causing the color to drain from his face.

    He opened his eyes and looked at Human Emperor. He said gloomily, "Your Majesty, I have failed once again. However, I have finally sensed a warning for the Human Emperor. The mysterious murderer is a catastrophe of our world that has just appeared."

    "Catastrophe?" Human Emperor was alarmed.

    Although he was the supreme leader of the Godfiend lineage, and one of the top human existences, he required the acknowledgment of the Daoist and Buddhist sects to unify and rule over the world. Furthermore, he had personally suppressed the worst catastrophe in this world. With such immense merit... all the Daoist and Buddhist schools of thought held him in great esteem. As such, they also acknowledged him as emperor of humanity.

    "This murderer is actually a catastrophe?" Human Emperor's expression turned nasty. "A catastrophe can be an item or it could be an entrance that leads to other worlds. I never expected the catastrophe this time to be a murderer at the mortal level. What makes him dangerous enough to become a catastrophe?"

    A catastrophe was a calamity of the world.

    It meant that it could overturn an entire world!

    ...

    "That lunatic from the Wang family has inferred that the murderer is a catastrophe?" In Po Prefecture's Divine Firmament Chapter, Ancestral Master Zhang sat cross-legged in a hidden Grotto-heaven.

    He had quickly received the news from Human Emperor.

    Although Ancestral Master Zhang was good at inference, he had not focused his efforts on it during his cultivation process. He was incomparable to Lunatic Wang and a few others.

    "Catastrophe? From the looks of it, this murderer is no trifling matter." Ancestral Master Zhang's expression turned heavy.

    ...

    After Human Emperor confirmed the news, it was natural that the Daoist and Buddhist sects, the Skydemon Palace, the Four Seas' Dragon race also quickly learned of the news. All of them needed to survive in this world so they naturally paid a lot of attention to the matter.

    The outcomes of the catastrophes in history were tremendous.

    If a few Essence Soul realm experts had to die to resolve a catastrophe, even that was considered lucky.

    ******

    Outside Grand Dominance City. In the clouds.

    The purple-robed He Qian remained carefree.

    "After I descended into this world, I cast mystic techniques in various places, spending several years here before I finally confirmed the location of the spatial nodes. Now, I have easily amassed the blood and flesh powers of three hundred and sixty thousand humans. With that much of it, I have enough to open a connection to my homeworld." He Qian overlooked Grand Dominance City. "Next, I have to construct the World Altar. The amount of treasures required is huge... If I tried to sneak an attack on an Essence Soul realm expert, it might cause a few powerhouses to appear. Haha, but thankfully, I discovered this Qin Yun. He is a mere mortal sword immortal but his treasure halos are astounding. He has just too many treasures on him. I could take five ordinary Essence Soul realm experts, add them up, and it still might not even match him."

    "I heard that he recently obliterated five Paramount realm fiendish demons at once?" He Qian scoffed. "Unfortunately, his strength is unlikely to withstand one strike of mine."

    An ancient Other Realm Fiendcelestial like himself regarded Paramount realm fiendish demons as ants!

    "Yes, I believe it's time to lure him out."

    The purple-robed youth looked at Grand Dominance City. "It's more convenient killing him outside the city! There are too many array formations inside Grand Dominance City and there are too many humans. It might stir people like Human Emperor, Divine Firmament Chapter's Ancestral Master Zhang, or Mahākāśyapa Bodhisattva..."

    He already had his plans.

    Swoosh.

    Following that, he silently descended in the direction of Grand Dominance City.

    ...

    Grand Dominance. Qin Manor.

    Qin Yun had been paying close attention to the mysterious murderer as of late. However, since no one in the world was capable of identifying him, he had no means to act on his prowess.

    "Brother Yun, don't worry. Since the murderer dares to act so brazenly, he will one day expose himself," said Yi Xiao. The couple was having an idle chat while enjoying tea in a pavilion.

    "I can only wait and hope that there will be no more slaughters in the coming days," said Qin Yun.

    "In the past half month, he has been carefully slaughtering nearly two hundred thousand people. However, he decimated nearly a hundred and eighty thousand humans at Maple Provincial City at once. I feel like it might have been a final spurt," suggested Yi Xiao. "Perhaps that slaughter gave him the required amount of flesh and blood, which led him to risk it all on such a crazy act."

    "Yea." Qin Yun nodded.

    As he held his teacup, he drank his tea before saying, "Xiaoxiao, I plan on going out on a trip tomorrow."

    "Oh? How long will it take?" asked Yi Xiao.

    "It might take a few days," said Qin Yun. "I plan on gathering more of the items needed to nurture my Intrinsic Flying Sword. I want to raise my Intrinsic Flying Sword to the transcendent grade. I also need items for my other flying sword. Furthermore, I will need such a huge quantity that it will take some time to gather it all."

    Just the cost of the materials needed to push his Intrinsic Flying Sword to the transcendent-grade matched that of a transcendent-grade Dharma treasure.

    The difference between ordinary and intrinsic Dharma treasures was huge.

    And that was actually the easiest aspect of it.

    The most difficult part of the nurturing process remained the level of one's Sword Dao. Since ancient times, there had only been two sword immortals that had managed to nurture their Intrinsic Flying Sword to the transcendent-grade level. Qin Yun believed that he was not far from that stage. Even if he were still lacking at present, it was only a matter of time before he could nurture his Intrinsic Flying Sword to the transcendent-grade given his age. Therefore, he decided to gather all the materials ahead of time.

    "Oh?" Qin Yun's expression suddenly changed. Through the array formation that he used to protect Qin Manor, he sensed that a fiendish demon aura was breaking through the boundaries of the array formation.

    The Qin family's array formation extended to a point outside Grand Dominance City.

    "There's a fiendish demon," said Yi Xiao immediately. "Furthermore, it has very pure and intricate fiendish aura."

    "I'll take a look," said Qin Yun. Following that, he shot out as a beam of light, streaking across the sky as he headed north.

    Qin Yun's flying speed was tremendously fast.

    He rapidly arrived at the northern city wall. Soon, he saw a purple-robed youth in flight. He exuded a hint of fiendish aura but it was very pure and intricate.

    "Sword Immortal Qin?" The purple-robed youth looked up and was astonished. He quickly cupped his hands and said, "I mean no harm. Sword Immortal Qin, I came here to discuss something with you."

    "With such a pure and intricate fiendish aura, it appears that you have gained the inherited teachings of the Nine Lineage Fiendish Demons." However, Qin Yun had a frosty expression. "Surrender yourself before we engage in our conversation."

    With that said, Qin Yun waved his hand.

    A wisp of Sword Qi flew out as it attempted to take down the purple-robed youth.
