    Chapter 330: Marquis Conferment

    "Senior, I was lucky. The Other Realm Fiendcelestial's corpse was in the inner palace complex of the Ancient Skydragon Palace so I did have a chance to obtain it," replied Qin Yun with a voice transmission. He felt rather lucky upon recollection. Thankfully, he had only encountered the fiendcelestial's body after he stepped into the Dao. If it had happened before he stepped into the Dao, he would have easily been killed by the Fiendheart Worm.

    Perhaps, the fiendmonsters generated by the Other Realm Fiendcelestial's corpse were even enough to obliterate him before he stepped into the Dao.

    Of course, luck was not the only factor. The ancient Skydragon had made arrangements before his death! Those that could survive the various obstacles on the way to the Other Realm Fiendcelestial's corpse must have had enough strength to survive the danger posed by the corpse itself.

    "You obtained it?" Ancestral Master Zhang was overjoyed. He immediately sent a voice transmission. "You have to sell that Other Realm Fiendcelestial's corpse to me. I won't lie to you. That corpse is a Skyfiend's corpse."

    "Alright," replied Qin Yun through a voice transmission.

    "Then we have an agreement. Don't sell it to anyone else," confirmed Ancestral Master Zhang through a voice transmission. "Stay behind when the rest of them leave."

    "Senior Zhang, rest assured," replied Qin Yun with a voice transmission.

    And at that moment, another person sent a voice transmission to Qin Yun. "Qin Yun, I noticed that the six black bangles you used to deal with the mysterious fiendish demon are a Numinous treasure. Have you been to the Ancient Skydragon Palace? Did you obtain many treasures there?"

    Qin Yun was astonished as he looked at Human Emperor. He replied with a voice transmission as well, "Your Majesty, you have a discerning eye. I did go to the Ancient Skydragon Palace recently and reaped quite a harvest."

    Human Emperor typically spoke in a manner that elevated himself whenever he conversed with mortals. However, he would speak to powerful cultivators as equals.

    Of course, he was the supreme leader of the Godfiend lineage. He was also one of the most powerful existences in the Great Chang world. Although Qin Yun's combat strength was at the third Firmament Essence Soul realm, he remained extremely respectful towards Human Emperor.

    "Come to the imperial palace when you have the time. You can sell me the treasures you have no need for. I might have things you need," said Human Emperor through a voice transmission. "Treasures are only truly valuable when they are suitable for you! By making exchanges... you can get rid of the ones you have no need for and exchange them for the things you need most. It's good for everyone."

    "Your Majesty, I'll visit the imperial palace shortly." Qin Yun agreed as well.

    Although many of the treasures Qin Yun had received from the Ancient Skydragon Palace and the Yellow Wyrm Grotto-heaven were valuable, he had no use for them. It was naturally better for him to sell them.

    ...

    All the immortals present had a discerning eye. When Qin Yun used the six Cosmic Bangles, they had determined that it was a Numinous treasure!

    That led them to surmise that Qin Yun had definitely chanced upon a large opportunity and received a great harvest!

    Many of them began sending voice transmissions to him.

    "Everyone."

    Human Emperor's eyes swept through the crowd as he said with a smile, "Qin Yun, Ninth Hong, and Eighth Zhu have played an important role in averting this catastrophe. The Zhu family will not be included in this since they have been conferred kingship. However, for Qin Yun and Ninth Hong, as per the already established rules, I will confer them with a province to be their fief. I will also bestow them with the title of marquis."

    Qin Yun and Hong Lingtong exchanged looks and immediately said reverently, "Thank you, Your Majesty."

    The conferring of a fief and the noble title of marquis was a beneficial thing to a family clan. There was no reason to reject it.

    And although it was conferred by the imperial government, the conferment also benefited them! This was because the duo had gained massive merit from preventing the disaster, causing the light from providence to shine on them more brilliantly! By receiving titles and becoming a part of the imperial government, they would share their merit and favor from providence with the imperial government.

    "Congratulations!"

    "Congratulations, Sword Immortal Qin. Congratulations, Brother Ninth Hong."

    "For a county to have two marquises is truly excellent. This event will likely be extolled for thousands of years."

    The immortals gave their congratulations.

    Human Emperor said with a smile, "Which province in the Grand Dominance County would the both of you like? Please choose."

    Hong Lingtong and Qin Yun exchanged looks before Hong Lingtong said, "I'll take Heightened Province."

    "Then, I'll take Serene Province." Qin Yun also quickly made his decision. The village he lived in during his childhood was located in Serene Province's vicinity.

    "Alright. It has been settled. The conferment of your marquis titles will be announced to the world three days from now," said Human Emperor with a smile. His words carried weight so whatever he said was naturally confirmed on the spot.

    "Thank you, Your Majesty." Hong Lingtong and Qin Yun were very happy as well.

    The conferment of the title of marquis by the imperial government could be attained at the Connate Paramount realm if one was a descendant of the imperial government.

    Qin Yun and Hong Lingtong, who were not related to the imperial government, could only be conferred nobility if they did something of great merit.

    As for being conferred kingship? One needed to be at the peak third Firmament Essence Soul realm to be conferred kingship! This was also a way for the imperial government to show favor to such an existence.

    As Human Emperor had to suppress the great catastrophe, the Godfiend lineage was unable to deal with peak third Firmament Essence Soul realm existences without him. It was natural to befriend them.

    As for the conferment of a fief, the fief would be theirs as long as the owner, such as Qin Yun or Patriarch Yi, was alive.

    If they died and there was no powerful cultivator to pass it on to, the family clan would fail to hold onto the fief. The imperial government would take it back as a result.

    "Brother Zhang, I'll leave the rest to you," said Human Emperor with a smile. "We shall not disturb you any further."

    "Senior Zhang, we bid you farewell."

    Senior Zhang, goodbye."

    People left one by one.

    Human Emperor looked at Qin Yun and exhorted him, "Qin Yun, come with me. I have something to discuss with you in private."

    With people departing, Hong Lingtong said with a smile when he noticed the situation, "Brother Qin Yun, I'll be leaving first."

    Qin Yun nodded.

    Following that, Qin Yun and Human Emperor rode away on a cloud. Human Emperor looked at Qin Yun and said with a smile, "You have been married for more than a decade but the both of you are still childless?"

    Qin Yun was taken aback as he nodded helplessly. "Yes, it's said that the stronger one is, the harder it is to bear children. Sigh, it's not like there's a solution to it."

    "I have cultivated to the Skygod realm. Do you think I cannot have children?" asked Human Emperor with a laugh.

    Qin Yun was slightly startled.

    That's right.

    There were more than twenty princes and princesses! Furthermore, most of them were born after Human Emperor ascended the throne.

    Human Emperor was a Skygod! It was much harder for him to bear children when compared to Qin Yun! Yet, he was able to produce so many offspring?

    "There is a mystic art," said Human Emperor with a smile. "It was not easy for me to obtain this mystic art back then. Even now, there are fewer than five people in this Great Chang world who know about this mystic art."

    With that said, Human Emperor flipped his hand as a thin booklet appeared. He handed it to Qin Yun. "I'll be bestowing this upon you. Didn't I mention a great prize for you previously? Do you want it?"

    Qin Yun was delighted.

    He and Yi Xiao had been hoping to have children since a long time ago. He had been waiting for so long, so he was delighted by the existence of such a mystic art.

    That's right. It was more difficult for Skygods and Skyimmortals to bear children due to their strength. It only made sense that one of them would create a Dharmic formulation to get around that restriction.

    "Thank you, Your Majesty." Qin Yun took the booklet excitedly.

    "Remember to visit the imperial palace when you have the time." After Human Emperor said smilingly, he turned and left, quickly disappearing from the horizon.

    Qin Yun immediately flipped through the booklet and read it carefully. The text was filled with Dao charms and after he finished reading them, the text vanished. The booklet crumbled into dust immediately following that.

    The mystic art also invited the envy from the heavens.

    Qin Yun was rather excited, hoping to return immediately to tell Yi Xiao the good news.

    "There are not more than five people who know of this mystic art in the Great Chang world but it was given to me?" Qin Yun nodded slightly. He could appreciate Human Emperor's sincerity.

    Clearly, his strength was now at the third Firmament Essence Soul realm. Even if his lifespan was limited to five centuries, he was bound to cause a stir in the world! Human Emperor had done so in order to create good karmic ties with him.

    ...

    Qin Yun returned to the World Entrance which was covered in lingering fog. Clearly, Ancestral Master Zhang was setting up an array formation.

    "Qin Yun." Ancestral Master Zhang appeared amid the fog.

    "Senior Zhang."

    Qin Yun flipped his hand and took out the Two World Picture. Swoosh!

    A tiny figure immediately flew out of the Two World Picture before it rapidly expanded. It was the red-scaled fiendcelestial corpse that was more than a thousand feet long.

    Ancestral Master Zhang's eyes lit up. Coupled with the arm he got before, he now had the complete Skyfiend's corpse. The only thing in the Ancient Skydragon Palace that interested Ancestral Master Zhang was the Skyfiend's corpse. As for the rest? He thought nothing of it! He did not even care about the Cosmic Bangle Numinous treasure. At his level, ordinary Numinous treasures did not increase his strength at all.

    Only a suitable item was the best!

    "I have encountered many opportunities in my cultivation to date. I have many treasures that you can choose from freely. I'll consider this Skyfiend corpse as a Numinous treasure." Ancestral Master Zhang smiled as he waved his hand. Immediately, treasures of all different colors appeared.

    In terms of opportunities, Ancestral Master Zhang had a lot more than Qin Yun.

    For instance, the two reincarnated immortals, Hong Lingtong and Eighth Zhu, knew that Ancestral Master Zhang had been lucky enough to become the personal disciple of the Dao Ancestor!

    "Oh?" Qin Yun's eyes lit up when he looked at the various treasures. He thought to himself, "I thought I had quite a lot of treasures but compared to Ancestral Master Zhang, I pale in comparison."

    "Senior Zhang, what is this?" Qin Yun began to ask for details.

    ...

    Two hours later.

    Qin Yun left Mt. Torturous in satisfaction. He cast the Beam Transformation Art and flew north towards Jiang Prefecture in a stream of light.
