A Will Eternal - chapter-1018
As the process of completing the fusion of the Undying Live Forever
Technique was going on… war still raged outside!
And the fierce fighting at Heavenspan Island had not yet ended!
The entire world was gripped with madness and slaughter!
Although this war between the lands of Heavenspan and the Wildlands had
only been going on for a few years now, in terms of the bitterness of the
struggle, it was something the likes of which had never occurred before
in the history of this world!
A great war had been fought when Daoist Heavenspan rebelled against the
Arch-Emperor Dynasty. The dynasty had fallen, and what remained of it had
fled to the Wildlands. But not even that war could compare to this one.
Never before had a war been fought in which so many cultivators died in
such a short period of time. It virtually defied imagination!
The Wildlands was the battleground, and it had long since been stained
crimson with blood. The aura of death and the stench of gore was so
intense… that not even the most powerful of winds could dispel it.
More than half of the cultivators from the four regions of the lands of
Heavenspan… were dead. Were it not for the strict control maintained by
the Celestial, such a high death rate would have already destroyed the
morale of the Heavenspan cultivators.
Devas fell in battle left and right, to the point where among the
Heavenspan forces, only half of their original force of devas
remained…. As for the four demigod patriarchs, so far, none had been
killed. However, all of them had taken severe injuries.
Considering that the Heavenspan forces had suffered such mind-boggling
casualties, and yet still maintained the upper hand, it was possible to
imagine… how disastrous this war was for the Wildlands!

Of the savage tribes that had once made up the bulk of the Wildlands
forces, most had been wiped out….
Seventy percent of the heavenly marquises had perished, and nearly half
of the heavenly dukes had been killed in body and soul….
All of the cities of the four heavenly kings had been burned to the
ground. The Giant Ghost King’s army was mostly intact, but the armies
of the other three heavenly kings had suffered roughly eighty percent
The vast difference between the Giant Ghost King’s forces and those of
the other heavenly kings was all because of Bai Xiaochun. Not only had he
stopped the fighting between the eastern Heavenspan cultivators and the
Wildlanders at Giant Ghost City, but he had also killed three of the
Heavenspan arcane guards, and destroyed their spell formation.
The other three cities had been routed, and the flight of their armies
hampered because of the spell formations. And thus, those battles had
nearly turned into massacres.
By now, the Wildlanders were completely surrounded, with ninety percent
of their territory lost. The only thing that remained… was Arch-Emperor
Arch-Emperor City was where the Wildlanders would make their final stand.
If that city fell… then it would mean that the bloodline of the
Arch-Emperors was gone forever!
The cultivators from the four rivers were encamped around Arch-Emperor
City. Of course, the Heavenspan cultivators still couldn’t help but
feel exhausted, and were filled with mixed emotions.
It was an exhaustion that ran so deep that most of them were
expressionless and numb….
As the years of fighting wore on, virtually all of the cultivators had
lost friends and loved ones…. However, there was another death that
none of the cultivators from either side of the conflict were aware of.
Bai Hao…. Because of his death, the Underworld River had dried up, and
the dead souls within it could no longer return to the cycle of
reincarnation. They had no choice but to wander heaven and earth…. It
was easy to imagine how such a situation quickly became another
catastrophe to plague the world.

It also became a powerful portent…. Eventually, the Wildlander soul
cultivators began to speculate about what it meant….
“The new Hell-Emperor… must have perished!!” Such speculations
inundated the soul cultivators like floodwaters, causing them to tremble
and sink further into the darkness of despair. To them, it seemed like
the end of the world was nigh. Even the Grand Heavenmaster and the
demigod experts felt their hearts being overtaken by anxiety and gloom.
The four heavenly kings’ cities had been routed. Ninety percent of
their armies were dead. The Heavenspan forces had Arch-Emperor City
surrounded. To the people of the Arch-Emperor Dynasty, those things all
became a massive blow to any hope for survival that anyone had…. But
the death of the Hell-Emperor was even more unimaginable. It was like an
attack that landed directly on their hearts and minds!
Those two heavy blows had the Arch-Emperor Dynasty reeling…. In fact,
if the Celestial had offered an opportunity for surrender, the Grand
Heavenmaster and the other leaders would have definitely been tempted to
Except… the Celestial didn’t seem to care about human life at all. He
would accept no surrender. He wanted the Wildlands wiped away, all the
way down to the grass and roots!
Such orders had long since been passed down to the demigod patriarchs of
the four riversource sects. In their exhaustion, they had begun the
assault on Arch-Emperor City with all the power they had at their
disposal. Their task… was to completely destroy it!
The decisive battle… was beginning!
Booms rang out constantly outside of Arch-Emperor City. It was a precious
treasure with powerful defensive shields, but they were being worn down,
and could not stand forever against the divine abilities and magical
techniques that battered them.
The Giant Ghost Legion, and the armies of the other three heavenly kings,
bolstered the innate defensive powers of Arch-Emperor City, giving it the
power to make its final stand!
Bloodcurdling shrieks rang out. Booms of self-detonation filled the air.
Shouting and howling could be heard all over the battlefield!

The corpse troopers that had once struck fear into the hearts of the
Wildlanders were now fully deployed onto the battlefield, and yet, they
didn’t seem to have much effect on the conflict as a whole.
High above, the demigods fought with utter desperation. The four heavenly
kings and the Grand Heavenmaster had all suffered horrific injuries, and
yet, were still going all out. As for the Heavenspan forces, they had
their four demigod patriarchs, as well as two divine guards from
A total of eleven demigods clashed above, causing the entire world to
tremble as if it might collapse….
The Arch-Emperor stood in the highest tower of the imperial palace,
looking out at the fighting. A gloomy expression covered his face, but he
had a bit of hope in his eyes, hope that the gravekeeper would eventually
show his face.
He had no idea that Bai Xiaochun was already in Arch-Emperor City. In his
mind, the gravekeeper… was the only hope of the Arch-Emperor Dynasty….
The Arch-Emperor wasn’t the only one who waited with such anticipation.
The Grand Heavenmaster and the four heavenly kings all harbored a similar
hope, as did many of the soul cultivators fighting down below.
The new Hell-Emperor Bai Hao was important in the Arch-Emperor Dynasty.
But to the soul cultivators, he was like the earth, whereas the
gravekeeper… was like the vast heavens!
Only if the gravekeeper appeared… could the tide turn!
But even as the cultivators of the Arch-Emperor Dynasty continued to
place their hope in the gravekeeper… all of Arch-Emperor City suddenly
shook violently. The lands around it quaked, and massive crevices snaked
out everywhere. In the blink of an eye… an aura of death spread out
from Arch-Emperor City, filling all of the Wildlands….
And things were just beginning. That aura of death… continued on to
fill all of the lands of Heavenspan….

Mountains seemed to lose their strength and collapse…. Jungles began to
wilt and crumble into ash….
It was as if the surface of the world were collapsing! Although it didn’t
explode… the aura of death that filled it was plain for everyone to
It wasn’t just the ground that was affected. The sky in the Wildlands
and in the Heavenspan region… began to turn as gray, as if no life
force existed in it at all!
Apparently… the entire world… was dying!!
Cultivators, mortals, and all other living beings were suddenly filled
with the most profound unease. It felt as if… the entire world were
about to fade away into eternity….
All of the cultivators in and around Arch-Emperor City suddenly stopped
fighting, and looked around in shock. Those from the Heavenspan region
seemed confused, whereas the Wildlander soul cultivators were so stunned
that many of them staggered in place. Looks of terror could be seen in
their eyes, as well as profound grief that soon turned into rage.
The Arch-Emperor shivered, his eyes lighting up with disbelief as he
murmured, “The gravekeeper… has perished. The world… is dying!”
Then he began to laugh bitterly for a moment before a wave of exhaustion
overcame him. Staggering backward, he coughed up a massive mouthful of
“There will be no more Arch-Emperors…. We will burn along with the
imperial city….” He closed his eyes.
The Grand Heavenmaster and the four heavenly kings looked around with
blank expressions and blanker minds. They had all known that the
gravekeeper was very weak, but the realization that he had actually
perished filled them with despair.

It was made worse by the fact that, along with the death of the
gravekeeper… the world itself seemed to be crumbling.
The demigod patriarchs of the four riversource sects were all shaken to
the core. However, after looking around momentarily, their eyes lit up
with determination. Taking advantage of the sudden blow to the morale of
the Wildlanders, they joined forces in a final salvo to destroy the city!
In the briefest of moments, fierce fighting broke out again….
Mountain-toppling, sea-draining force… slammed into Arch-Emperor City!
The defensive shields of the city finally shattered, and the city walls
began to fall. The Wildlanders were being pushed back by defeat after
defeat. As for the Heavenspan cultivators, most of them just wanted to be
done with the fighting, and thus, killing intent once again rose from
within their numbed minds and hearts.
The four demigod patriarchs and the two divine guards reacted similarly.
Blood sprayed out of the mouths of the four heavenly kings, and even the
Grand Heavenmaster was shoved backward.
There was no hope for the Wildlanders. Only despair. There was no way
they could defend themselves from this onslaught. At this point, their
minds and wills began to collapse, forcing them to howl in madness.
Even as Arch-Emperor City seemed to be on the verge of falling…
fluctuations exploded out from within it that seemed to affect the
rapidly spreading aura of death!
Down below in the third section of the city, Bai Xiaochun… opened his
