Martial World - chapter-429
Lin Ming took a deep breath. He had washed his hands, his face, burned
incense, and had adjusted his own mindset so that there wasn’t even the
slightest trace of turbulent emotions.
Then he poured the blood essence onto his chest.
The crimson blood essence dripped down. At first there wasn’t a
reaction, but after a breath of time, there was a ‘chi chi chi’
sound. The blood essence seemed to be corroding, and was emitting a faint
trace of blue smoke.
As a burning pain emitted from his chest area, Lin Ming furrowed his
eyebrows. He felt his heart, and then released his sense to investigate
the Magic Cube under his chest area that was releasing strange
fluctuations of energy, hoping to find some clues.
After it went to sleep near Lin Ming’s heart, the Magic Cube seemed to
have disappeared. If it didn’t reveal itself of its own initiative, Lin
Ming would never have been able to sense it.
But now, as the Magic Cube absorbed the blood essence, Lin Ming was
finally able to detect its existence.
However, right after, Lin Ming felt his spiritual sea tremble. The
perception he released seemed as if it were being sucked into the Magic
Cube. Against this powerful suction power, Lin Ming couldn’t react in
time; he simply wasn’t able to offer any resistance.

Lin Ming’s consciousness had arrived into a dark, jet black space that
stretched infinitely outwards. It was as if he were floating in the
He was extremely familiar with this space – this was the space within
the Magic Cube.
Beside Lin Ming, dense mist floated all around him. Within this mist
there were many shining lights. They slowly revolved around a giant
foot-wide light sphere in the center, as if they were stars in heaven.
“I’m finally here.”
The second time it had been a Houtian martial artist’s blood essence
that had opened the Magic Cube. The third time it had been a Xiantian
master’s blood essence. The fourth time would probably require that of
a Revolving Core master…
Lin Ming was sure that even if it was a Revolving Core master’s blood
essence, it wouldn’t have much of an effect on the Magic Cube. In fact,
this was most likely the Magic Cube finding a way to tell him that it
needed the blood essence of powerhouses.
The giant soul shard light sphere in the center shined with a milky, soft
light. The countless soul fragments around it were like sparkling crystal.
Although Lin Ming had arrived within the Magic Cube space, he still felt
a bit of disappointment; even now, he didn’t understand anything more
about the Magic Cube.
As Lin Ming released his sense to touch upon all the soul fragments, he
discovered to his surprise that not only was his soul force growing
stronger with time, but also that he could feel the vague aura that the
soul fragments released.
Some soul fragments were gentle, and others were overbearing. There were
even those that had a faint hint of blood and devil arts.
Visit lightno_velworld.com for a better experienceThis should be because
of the cultivation methods that they had cultivated while they were alive.
The energy was extremely faint, Lin Ming could only roughly approximate.
As he looked at the soul fragments, he did so very carefully. He
couldn’t guarantee beyond a doubt that all of these soul fragments were
ownerless. There was a possibility that there were some soul fragments on
which the spirit mark wasn’t destroyed yet. If he selected one like
that, he would be in a worst case situation. All of these Supreme Elders
of the Realm of the Gods were earthshaking characters that dominated
worlds before they died. Even if there was just the tiniest amount of
leftover will within a soul fragment, there was no way that Lin Ming
would be able to resist it.
Lin Ming had been in the Magic Cube space for a long time. He didn’t
dare to rashly release his sense everywhere, he passively sensed his
surroundings. After some time, Lin Ming’s eyes suddenly popped open. He
turned around with an incredulous expression as he watched a light red
colored soul fragment slowly floating past him.
This soul fragment was only the size of a small nail and sparkled like a
ruby crystal. As it slowly spun around through space, it left sprinkles
of red light wherever it went.
Lin Ming paused, this feeling was…
Back when Lin Ming and Lei Mubai had fought, he had also felt a similar
Netherworld Great Emperor?
Ancient Devil Tome?
Lin Ming hesitated. Then he stepped forwards, and a wisp of his true
essence locked onto that soul fragment.
As he looked at the soul fragment that was bound by true essence, Lin
Ming could clearly feel that it contained a bloody energy.
Visit lightno_velworld.com for a better experienceWhen Lin Ming had
swallowed the Shattered Demon Heart Crystals, he had witnessed the great
figure of the Netherworld Great Emperor’s giant axe pointed at the sky,
his feet firmly upon the ground. There had also been countless numbers of
demons that surrounded him. Lin Ming’s heart suddenly surged with an
inexplicable desire to swallow this soul fragment. Just what would happen
if he did?
Lin Ming grit his teeth, and then reached out a hand to grab the red soul
As Lin Ming touched the soul fragment, it melted into a stream of light
that submerged into his body.
Lin Ming’s strength was far more formidable than it had been in the
past. But, this soul fragment was also more formidable than any one he
had absorbed before. As a countless amount of information emerged within
Lin Ming’s mind, his spiritual sea suddenly shook, and fuzzy scenes and
sounds appeared in front of him.
Of these various demons he saw, there were also those that were etched
upon the walls of the Ancient Phoenix Main Hall.
War… blood… battlefields…
Powerhouses waved their earth-shattering weapons in the air. Countless
corpses flew back, burned into nothing but countless specks of ash. The
yellow sandy ground was dyed completely red…
Faintly, Lin Ming could see a massive city hewn from rock. The buildings
within this city were rough and looked wild, but it was filled with an
uninhibited sense of power and beauty. And the residents within this city
were all the demons that Lin Ming had seen before. They were all over 10
feet tall, and some were even 20 feet tall.
Visit lightno_velworld.com for a better experienceLin Ming’s mind
echoed with these two words. After the chaos of fragmented memories was
finally organized by Lin Ming, he finally understood that these demons
were really just a human-like race!
Their bodies were wrapped in chains, and long horns and tusks came from
their faces. They had fiery crimson hair that recklessly hung down. This
was not unique to the Netherworld Great Emperor. In truth, they were a
separate race – the Giant Demon race.
“So that’s how it was. The Netherworld Great Emperor was not a human
to begin with. When I swallowed the Shattered Demon Heart Crystal and saw
him slaughter countless demons with his great axe, it’s likely that the
location was a gathering place of the Giant Demon race.
“And the red demon that I encountered during the last smelting trial of
the Divine Phoenix Mystic Realm was also a kind of Giant Demon…”
The puzzles that had plagued Lin Ming’s mind suddenly became much
“No wonder I was able to feel the same bloodline legacy of the
Netherworld Great Emperor from Lei Mubai. I’m even able to sense the
difference in this small red soul fragment. The reason is that it simply
doesn’t originate from the bloodline of humanity, so it’s a bit more
As Lin Ming opened his eyes, he left the Magic Cube space. He opened the
doors and walked out. The moon was bright in the sky, it was already late
The night air was a bit humid. As a cold breeze wafted on his face, Lin
Ming sobered up by a great deal. He rubbed his forehead and felt a deep,
aching pain in his brain, as if it had slept for too long and his mind
wasn’t cleared yet.
As Lin Ming suppressed this aching feeling, he carefully examined the
memories he had acquired. Suddenly, Lin Ming was fiercely startled,
Visit lightno_velworld.com for a better experienceGreat Desolate Blood
Lin Ming was shocked. In the image in his mind, this weapon was 10 feet
long, and the halberd shaft was as thick as an arm. This great and
ominous halberd was a deep blood red all over!
This… this Supreme Elder of the Realm of the Gods was actually the
first master of the Great Desolate Blood Halberd!
Lin Ming’s was mind-boggled.
The Great Desolate Blood Halberd had left behind endless legends. It was
said that it was at least a medium-grade heaven-step treasure, or
possibly even higher. This halberd had existed for 70-80 thousand years
already. Because of the vast expanse of time, it was no longer possible
to find out just who the first master of the weapon was. All of the
masters that followed – including even the Peerless Emperor powerhouses
– had an insufficient destiny and would be cursed to death by this
This even included the Netherworld Great Emperor!
Lin Ming subconsciously took out the ancient Devil Tome from the spatial
ring. This ancient Devil Tome was taken from Lei Mubai. After he read it,
Lin Ming began to laugh and cry at the same time. It turned out that this
ancient Devil Tome was actually a cultivation method that the Supreme
Elder who had first owned the Great Desolate Blood Halberd had created
himself, just before he left for the Realm of the Gods!
Such a coincidence could only be said to be the will of the heavens. It
was probably because of all these vague connections that Lin Ming was
able to sense that familiar energy coming from the blood red soul
“To think that one of the 10,000 powerhouses from the Realm of the Gods
that had laid waste to the Verdant Feather Holy Lands was someone who had
flown up from the Sky Spill Continent.”
“The first master of the Great Desolate Blood Halberd… 80,000 years
ago, he was an Emperor powerhouse of Sky Spill Continent, titled the
Demon Emperor! He had founded his own sixth-grade sect that lasted for
over 16,000 years!”

Anyone who dared to call themselves this was probably the top figure of
the demonic path!
Because the memories were incomplete, it took a long time for Lin Ming to
reorganize them. There were many bits and pieces of information; he
simply was at a complete loss at many of these confusing scenes.
As Lin Ming slowly digested these memories, he looked through them.
Within the memories of this Demon Emperor’s soul fragment, most of them
were memories of scenes that involved his participation in wars. There
were countless scenes of slaughter and blood!
“This Demon Emperor is really bloodthirsty!
Lin Ming sighed. Although this soul fragment was larger than the last
two, there were very few memories of cultivation methods. There were a
few, but even those were mostly incomplete. As Lin Ming continued to
organize the memories of the soul fragment, he was suddenly startled.
“Mm? This is…”
A halberd art?
Lin Ming’s heart moved. In truth, the essence behind a spear and
halberd was nearly the same. Spear skills could be used with a halberd,
and halberd arts could be used with a spear!
What Lin Ming lacked the most now was spear skills. When he had fought a
master of Golden Bell Mountain in a match, it had fully reflected a
weakness of his, and that was that he lacked finesse and technique in his
spear skills. If it wasn’t for the blood of the True Dragon that had
augmented his spear powers, Lin Ming would have undoubtedly lost to Xiao
Chi in a battle of spear skills.

race mostly uses long weapons! Humans mostly used swords and sabers, but
the Giant Demon race – maybe because of their height – are more
familiar with long pole-type weapons. For instance, the Netherworld Great
Emperor used a long handled great axe and the blood halberd. Lei Mubai
also used a halberd. As for this Demon Emperor, he also used a halberd.”
And what was impressive was that this ‘Great Desolate Halberd Art’
was one of the Demon Emperor’s ultimate law formulas. Not only did it
contain halberd skills, but it also contained a cultivation method. Its
power was simply enormous.
The ancient Devil Tome that Lei Mubai had cultivated was only a tiny
fraction of the full ‘Great Desolate Halberd Art’.
What Lin Ming was apprehensive about was that cultivating the ‘Great
Desolate Halberd Art’ was not easy. It required one to constantly kill,
sucking up the enemy’s blood essence and accumulating one’s own
“Killing…” Lin Ming frowned. During these years that he had
practiced martial arts, he hadn’t killed many. As for all those that he
killed, they each had reasons to die and had simply walked the road of
When the Demon Emperor had practiced the ‘Great Desolate Halberd
Art’, he had killed countless others in an absolute bloodthirsty
frenzy, all in order to improve his own cultivation method. But Lin Ming
could not do the same. He could not, and would not kill innocent people.
“This demon way martial arts seemed to have two different paths. There
is the killing path along with the lustful path. The Netherworld Great
Emperor had stepped upon both of these, but as for the Demon Emperor of
80,000 years ago, he had only walked the killing path!
“And the killing path is the only way left to me…”
