Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-302
The Mysterious Yang Dan and the Missing Yin Dan were bodily nourishment
medicines, and were to be taken by men and women respectively. They
were refined using the most ordinary herbs, and could be consumed by the
most ordinary of people; without any fear of a side effect. However, the
Spirit Amassing Dan was a high-level Dan, and was only suited for
high-level martial practitioners.
The Spirit Amassing Dan was also known as the ‘Devil’s Heart’ Dan.
This Dan was designed to be consumed while undertaking martial training.
It would increase the concentration of the ‘spirit energy’ inside a
person’s body by a very significant margin. Moreover, the possibility
of a backlash — or the ‘Devil’s Bite’ — would be more-or-less
eliminated even if a person would wholeheartedly immerse themselves in
their practice. This function of the Devil’s Heart Dan would seem
rather simple, but it was no trivial matter. This Dan wasn’t a rare
treasure, but it wasn’t exactly sold openly in the market; nor did it
have a price.
A martial practitioner can’t afford to be afraid of foreign object;
they can’t fear pain. However, the ‘Devil’s Bite’ was one the
biggest hurdles in their path. And, most people were afraid of this
phenomenon. It was hard to say how many high-level martial
practitioners had succumbed to the Devil’s Bite over the course of
their training, and had lost their lives and cultivation to this tragedy.
In fact, the effect of the Devil’s Bite was likely to be more severe
for a martial practitioner of a higher level. But, the Devil’s Heart
Dan effectively put an end to this phenomenon’s possibility. Hence,
this Dan was often considered as a ‘Life-saving’ Dan.
An open circulation of the ‘Devil’s Heart Dan’ would likely give
rise to a ruckus in the entire Xuan Xuan continent. This small medicine
pill could easily cause a blood-bath; a very tragic one at that. In fact,
the intensity of the scramble for this medicine wouldn’t be very
different from the one that had unfolded for the ‘Level Nine Xuan
The “Multi-Cure Dan” did what its name suggests. It was miracle
medicine that could cure a myriad of infections and diseases. This
medicine could blend with a plethora of infectious and poisonous
substances inside the host’s body, and could remove them from therein
— without causing any harm to the subject. It was a long road to Tian
Fa. Moreover, the journey and the destination were filled with a variety
of elements that could cause infections in the troops’ bodies. And,
this medicinal pill could act as a major means of prevention against all
such elements by preserving the troops’ health. Therefore, Jun Mo Xie
had given this medicine preference over the others.
The last was the ‘Connecting-Meridians Dan’. Jun Mo Xie had given it
a different name: Ten Years Dan. According his experiments — a
person’s Xuan Qi and internal strength were likely to see an
enhancement after the consumption of this Dan. This Dan wouldn’t
exactly open-up a person’s Xuan meridians, but it could enhance a
person’s Xuan cultivation by ten years’ time!
Moreover, the effects of this enhancement were possibly permanent in
In other words, this ‘Medicinal Dan’ could provide a life-long
enhancement in person’s combat effectiveness. Moreover, this miraculous
medicine could produce this effect in a very short period of time. Jun Mo
Xie could enhance the cultivation level of the 300 hundred guards he was
training to an entirely new level if this medicine could be combined with
the ‘Devil’s Heart Dan’.
Jun Mo Xie could naturally refine a few more medicines using the second
level of the ‘Art of Unlocking the Heaven’s fortune’. But, those
medicines were mostly nourishment medicines such as ‘Spirit
Purifying’ Dan etc. These medicines were quite effective as well, but
Jun Mo Xie didn’t think very highly of them; nor did he need them very
urgently. So, he had temporarily ignored them when he had made a list of
his first-choice medicines.
It was imperative for him to enhance strength as soon as possible. Not
just his own — but that of the entire Jun Family’s troops.
Jun Mo Xie sat cross-legged inside the Hongjun Pagoda. He was facing the
‘Furnace of Good Fortune’, and was trying to calm his excited frame
of mind. The ‘Art of Unlocking the Heaven’s Fortune’ had been
surging like a torrent, but it started to flow like a smooth stream as
his mental state became calmer. Suddenly, he felt burst of clarity in his
Jun Mo Xie raised his hands after a loud shout, and drew a large circle
in the void of the air. Then, he rapidly drew some characters with his
finger. He wasn’t using any kind of ink, but some strange characters
would show up in that circle he had previously drawn. And, those strange
characters would fly into the Furnace of Good Fortune once they had been
The ‘Flame of Primal Chaos’ was lightly ablaze under the ‘Furnace
of Good Fortune’ when he had started. However, the flame suddenly
became more ardent and fierce. A jet-black flame soared ten feet into the
sky, and enveloped the entire ‘Furnace of Good Fortune’ inside it.
Jun Mo Xie pointed the index finger of his hand towards the ‘Furnace of
Good Fortune’ as this happened. A ‘buzz’ resounded from the
Furnace, and it started to float and swirl in midair. Soon, the
Furnace’s body started to radiate with a rainbow-colored light, and
countless strange patterns appeared on its outer surface. Then, those
patterns suddenly disappeared. But, that rainbow-colored light continued
to radiate on the furnace’s body. The furnace continued to swirl and
buzz midair as its lid was raised into the sky.
Jun Mo Xie tossed the medicinal ingredients into the furnace with his
right hand, and the entire atmosphere was suddenly filled with a rich
medicinal aroma. This dense fragrance had come to life the moment the
ingredients made contact with the Furnace. Then, the Furnace’s lid
slammed down, and the ‘Flame of Primal Chaos’ lit-up once again.
Then, Jun Mo Xie pointed his finger towards the furnace, and it was
enveloped in that jet-black flame again.
Suddenly, Jun Mo Xie felt as if the spiritual energy inside his body had
surged out like a massive river that had broken past its dam…
This was merely the beginning. The Young Master Jun had always sailed
swiftly — despite the direction of the current. However, he found
himself complaining like never before…
[Oh My God! Is this medicinal alchemy or blood suction? That feeling from
a moment ago was simply terrifying! Refining such a small amount of Dans
requires so much strength, and such a substantial amount of Aura?! And,
that’s when I’m only refining the most basic and ordinary Dans! If
this is merely the starting point… wouldn’t it kill me if I were to
refine high-end Dans? This is too much…!]
[Damn it! I’ve seen the movies! Those Daoist alchemists would concoct
Dans with so much ease. They would merely stroke their beards and scratch
their whiskers, and the job would be done. The clouds would shake, and
the Dan would show up in front of them. And, a person could be brought
back from the dead with the Dan they would concoct! In fact, a person
could become as light as feather, and ascend to the heavens as an
[Ah… why did it have to be so difficult in my case? I just want to
treat some injuries, cure some infections, and enhance a person’s
cultivation by a few years… that’s all! But, why does something so
simple have to demand so much energy from my spirit, ah?]
Jun Mo Xie grumbled in his heart, but didn’t dare to slack off. He
tried to maintain a steady flow, and allowed his body’s spiritual
energy to surge out like a massive river…
A long while later…
The Furnace of Good Fortune issued a loud sound, and resumed its original
position on the ground. The Flame of Primal Chaos simmered down and
reverted back to its original color.
As for the Young Master Jun — he was completely exhausted. He didn’t
even have the strength to move his fingers. He panted for air as he
sensed the HongJun Pagoda frantically pour Aura into his meridians. He
felt as if he had just run 5 kilometers with a 500kg boulder on his body.
He was literally on the verge of his sticking his tongue out of his mouth
to breathe more air. In fact, the Young Master Jun would’ve probably
fallen into a deep slumber if it wasn’t the crazy amount of
supplementary energy that the HongJun Pagoda was pouring into his body.
Physical fatigue was secondary. The crucial point was that his spirit had
been exhausted. This was a rather frightening situation. The consequences
could be very serious if his spirit wasn’t timely supplemented.
A long, long while later… Jun Mo Xie finally felt as if his dried-out
meridians had been somewhat replenished. He strutted off the ground with
the help of the little remaining spiritual energy in his body, and lifted
the Furnace’s lid. Then, he peeked to take a look inside it. He
violently cried-out after a quick glance, while his limbs started to
There was nothing inside the Furnace of Good Fortune! …apart from some
“I’m going to fu*k you!” The Hitman was flabbergasted. He continued
to curse in anger, “I don’t believe this! I spent all the effort I
could, and this Dan still didn’t get refined?! I can’t believe that
I’ll have to try a second time over such silly and ordinary Dans!”
He sat down cross-legged, put the HongJun Pagoda into motion, and started
to absorb the spiritual energy… [I won’t mess up the second time]…
“You recumbent furnace!” the Hitman couldn’t believe the result of
his second attempt either. “This is again… ah… well, my I’m going
to get serious! Let’s see who the real daddy is!”
Then, he started all over again…
“Damn it! I can’t believe this devil! I don’t know how many
attempts this nonsense is going to take… ten times… Do I have to try
a hundred times? A thousand times…?” he continued to curse in anger.
He vented out his anger till he exhausted himself, and then sat down
cross-legged again. He restarted the HongJun Pagoda to replenish his
energy, and started the process again…
He couldn’t believe the result again… abused till he was exhausted…
and then started the entire process again…
It’s hard to say how many times it took, but eventually…
“Wow, ha ha ha ha… I’m your daddy! How can a piece of trash like
you keep turning my stuff into ashes, huh? Ah? You son of a bit*h! You
think I don’t know you? You’re a bastard! Ha! You evil little thing!
You think you can beat me? Hum…”
The Young Master Jun’s messy hair and dirt-filled face didn’t look
much different from that of a beggar’s. In fact, even a beggar would
look better than Jun Mo Xie’s present appearance. His face had gone as
green as that of a zombie’s. His entire body was trembling as if he was
suffering from a stroke of epilepsy. He extended his hand, and grabbed a
tiny and shiny pill from the Furnace. He then raised it into the air, and
started jumping up and down like a maniac…
He gnashed his teeth as he held that pill in his hands. Jun Mo Xie had a
strong impulse to throw that pill on the ground so he could trample it
like a maniac. [Damn it! I suffered so much for this tiny piece of
trash?! I’ve got cramps from that tortuous ordeal! What if I were to
toss you to the ground, and stamp on you… that would be fun… that
would feel so good… how good would that feel?]
However, the heartless and ruthless Jun Mo Xie was reluctant to part with
it. [Damn! Trample on this thing? Has my brain short-circuited? That’s
not enough! I’m going to swallow you! You will squirm inside my
intestines till you’ve been digested. And then, you shall be
transformed into my moisty and stinky sh*t. That’s the best punishment
He continued to rain curses as he slowly put them into a jade bottle.
Then, he pulled one pill out of the jade bottle, and brought it up to his
mouth. His hands treated the pill as if it was a priceless treasure,
while his mouth cursed it “Tiny piece of trash”. Then, that pill
reluctantly left his hand, and dropped into his mouth. Crack, crack,
crack… he chewed it a few times, and swallowed it down…
“The result looks good.” Jun Mo Xie face reveled in the aftertaste of
the Mysterious Yang Dan as it came in contact with his mouth. Then, Jun
Mo Xie’s face revealed a bitter expression as he realized that he had
many more to refine, [How much time will this take?]
[Forget about the material required for this Mysterious Yang Dan… I
came in with 100 packets of herbs… and now I only have 78 left. It took
me 22 attempts to succeed once. And, it could’ve been by accident too!
I can only concoct 30 pills in one go. So, I will have to succeed 10
times if I want to make enough for all my trainees. How many attempts
will it take to succeed 10 times…?]
“This stupid furnace!” Jun Mo Xie sat down again, and started to
replenish his spiritual energy…
One had to say that Jun Mo Xie had a very tough will-power. It had
certainly surpassed that of an ordinary person. An ordinary person
wouldn’t back away if they were met with a wall on their path. However,
Jun Mo Xie wouldn’t just refuse to give-up… he’d continue to knock
against the wall until he had broken past it.
Jun Mo Xie had initiated the Hongjun Pagoda to reinstate his spiritual
power for the 22nd time. He wanted to restart the Furnace of Good Fortune
and Flame of Primal Chaos so he could adhere to his task of concocting
the required number of pills. However, the spiritual energy in his body
had been exhausted. In fact, not even a spec of it was left.
What kind of sensation would a martial man feel once their Xuan Qi and
Spiritual Energy had been depleted? Such excessive strain would leave
their limbs cold, and their mind in chaos. And, if a person had to
experience this feeling over 22 times… one would feel as if the very
depth of the sea of their soul had started to tremble… as if they would
wither at a moment’s notice; it was a very creepy sensation that would
leave one’s hair standing at an end! It would be akin to taking a
recreational hike along the gates of hell.
An average person would at best endure this the first time due to their
“discipline”. But, they would never attempt it a second time.
Moreover, the memory of this sensation was likely to shatter the
said-person’s will-power, and leave them traumatized. In fact, even the
individuals bestowed with the strongest of will-powers wouldn’t attempt
this more than three-to-five times.
However, the Young Master Jun had attempted this process 22 times in a
row! He had failed the first 21 times… but judging by his zeal — he
would’ve single-mindedly carried-on even if he hadn’t succeeded in
his 22nd attempt.
Who could claim to be more tenacious than Hitman Jun? Who could claim to
be more ruthless?
Let alone the Spiritual Energy… even the mental discipline required to
accomplish this feat wasn’t trivial! It was simply unimaginable!
As the situation stood — the Young Master Jun had succeeded once, and
had concocted a few pills. However, he still wasn’t willing to stop. In
fact, he was brimming with desire to refine all the ingredients he
Even if an almighty alchemic master was to see such tenacity… they’d
probably roll their eyes over and faint!
They’d call him a freak; perhaps an evil spirit!
However, Jun Mo Xie wasn’t aware of this. In fact, he probably
wouldn’t bother even if he was. So, he’d endlessly gather his energy,
and would immerse himself into refining the pills. Then, he’d put-up a
miserly expression on his face as he’d slowly put those pills into his
small jade bottle…
One bottle could only hold a hundred pills. Seeing that one bottle had
filled-up… he brought out the next one… filled it… and then the
next… Perhaps it could be attributed to his previous failures, but Jun
Mo Xie had become very skilled at this. In fact, it seemed as if he was
one of the best alchemists alive…
Perhaps he had failed too many times in the beginning. But, his rate of
failure had decreased very significantly after he had gained some
experience. Now, he’d succeed one out of every three times…
However, this wasn’t the most important aspect. The most important
thing was — the recovery speed of Jun Mo Xie’s spiritual energy had
been increasing incessantly. Jun Mo Xie’s countenance had resembled a
‘dead dog’ after his first attempt. But, he would only be left to
pant grumpily at present. Then, he’d gasp a mouthful of air, sit down
to meditate, recover himself in a few moments, and then start again…
this had increased his speed by two or three times…
His success rate had also increased!
It was hard to say how much benefit these pills would provide. But, Jun
Mo Xie’s spiritual energy was deriving great benefits from this
refining process. And, these benefits would certainly be profound and
Jun Mo Xie’s spiritual strength’s condensation and his spiritual
awareness’s strength had shown massive improvements over the course of
those 21 failures. And, they had unexpectedly burst-out when he had
successfully concocted his first batch of pills. This had revealed the
progress that Jun Mo Xie had made while concocting these pills.
However, Jun Mo Xie was unaware of this. In fact, he hadn’t taken any
note of this aspect.
Jun Mo Xie had “accidentally” or “unintentionally” attained a
state of detachment from his body.
He was completely detached from himself. There was only one thing in his
mind — [refine pills! Refine pills! Refine pills! I need to refine
pills at any cost! …there’s no time! I don’t have enough time! I
must pay close attention to how much time I spend in refining these
The expression on his face had gone from that of excitement… to calm
and serene… to ‘it’s only a matter of time’… to a wooden
expression… and had eventually transformed into that of a man who was
mundanely sitting and eating his daily cabbage…
And the cheapest variety of cabbage at that! The kind that would be sold
for a dozen a dime… the kind that one would grow bored of consuming…
But then, Jun Mo Xie made a startling discovery by the time he started to
refine the Connecting-Meridians Dan. And, he finally woke-up with a
[What the fu*k!]
[My body’s spiritual power has supported three consecutive refining
processes, and I still don’t feel exhausted! This… what’s
happening? Are these pills of a lower level than the previous ones?
Nah… they are all at the same level. But, this Connecting-Meridians Dan
is the highest-leveled pill amongst these… It’s the hardest to
refine, and requires the maximum amount of Aura input… I remember that
I was barely to persist when I refined the first batch of pills… so why
don’t I feel dead-tired right now? What’s happening…]
Jun Mo Xie’s mind was set into motion. And so, he peeked inside his
body. One glance — and he jumped-up in shock!
The traces of the formless spiritual energy still persisted within his
meridians. It had broken past the first layer, and was gradually breaking
through the second layer as it shuttled back and forth his meridians.
This spiritual energy was still in the form of mist, but it was much
denser than before! In fact, it nearly felt as if it had solidified!
[Don’t tell me! My spiritual strength has seen such a massive growth by
merely refining these medicines?]
Jun Mo Xie couldn’t understand this. After all, wasn’t he merely
He would exhaust his bodily aura every time he’d refine the
ingredients. But, he’d instigate the HongJun Pagoda into motion since
he didn’t have any time to replenish his spiritual energy. And, the
HongJun Pagoda would reinstate his meridians with pure aura, and revive
his spiritual strength. However, it would replenish his meridians with a
little more aura than they previously contained.
It was hard to tell the number of times he had undergone this process…
but, he’d put all his effort into the process each time, and would
overstrain himself in the process…
It could be said that Jun Mo Xie would’ve died without a dreg if it
weren’t for the HongJun Pagoda. However, the HongJun Pagoda existed.
And, his body was presently inside it. This was greatly beneficial for
him, but it’s difficult to describe these benefits in words…
His strength had more than doubled since the time he had started to
concoct these pills in the Pagoda!
As for the measure of his Xuan Qi — he had at-least reached the
mid-level mark of the Jade Xuan realm. And, he could make another
breakthrough at any point. As for the ‘Art of Unlocking the Heaven’s
Fortune’ was concerned — he had reached the mid-level mark of the
second layer! He could reach the peak of the first layer after one more
giant stride. Then, he could advance further by impacting the third
Moreover, it hadn’t even been 15 days since he had broken into the
In other words, he had managed to enhance himself by two full steps over
the course of this frenzied time when he had been immersed in refining
these medicines. Two full steps! Ordinary people couldn’t even think
about such progression!
Xuan Qi cultivation was easy before a person reached the Silver Xuan
level. So, the growth was rapid. But, every step would become harder once
a person had made the breakthrough into the Silver Xuan Realm. In fact,
the same was true for every type of martial cultivation. It gets tougher
to make a breakthrough with every grade a cultivator advances.
Take the Tian Fa King beasts for example. They were far beyond the
ordinary. In fact, one could say that they had been blessed by the
heavens. However, they had been stuck at the same breakthrough for
decades; but still hadn’t seen any signs of a breakthrough. They had
made progress every day over the course of these decades. But, they still
hadn’t been able to make a breakthrough. So, one could imagine how
fanatical they must’ve gotten when Jun Mo Xie offered to assist them in
making one. This was probably the most apt description of the difficulty
An ordinary person simply couldn’t fathom this!
Jun Mo Xie exhaled a long, long, long breath. His mind was enveloped by
ecstasy, and he suddenly loosened up. Then, he suddenly felt a strong
ache in his head; as if he his skull had been punctured with needles. Jun
Mo Xie had forgotten about the passage of time since he had entered the
HongJun Pagoda. In fact, he had no idea as to how much time he had been
However, he had an unbearable headache at the moment. His entire body
felt powerless. His spiritual energy had been re-filling itself, but his
body had long been exhausted. Then, a strong sense of starvation emerged
from his stomach. So much so, that Jun Mo Xie was left aggrieved to death.
[How long have I been at this without any food? Ah, not to mention…
without any water…]
Jun Mo Xie scanned the floor beside his feet, and was again shocked by
the sight of his doings…
Rows after rows of jade bottles had been neatly arranged on the floor.
He counted the number of bottles… [My God!]
Jun Mo Xie sucked in a breath of cold air. [Did I really refine so many
pills? Crap! I’m so abnormal! In fact, I’m not even a human being
[There’s five bottles of Mysterious Yang Pills, three bottles of
Missing Yin Pills, six bottles of Devil’s Heart Pills, eight bottles of
Connecting-Meridians pills, and fifteen bottles of Multi-Cure Pills…]
[I’m too great! Too great! I’m very, very handsome! I’m amazing!
…no adjective can aptly describe my talents!]
[These pills… they are… power ah! How much progression will my 300
guards’ strength see once I give them these pills? It’s certainly
going to be formidable!]
Jun Mo Xie spent some time praising himself. Then, he quickly ducked-out
of the HongJun Pagoda… [I’m going to starve to death if I don’t
leave this place…]
However, Jun Mo Xie was completely unaware that he had spent three days
and three nights inside the HongJun Pagoda instead of that one
‘intended’ night. Moreover, he was completely unaware of the
commotion his absence had caused…
The Jun Family’s Young Master had disappeared from his own residence…
no one had found any traces of his departure, and he hadn’t told anyone
either. Moreover, he had never disappeared for such a long stretch in the
On top of that, Jun Mo Xie had disappeared right after the Solitary
Falcon had departed the Jun residence. What did this indicate? Could
anyone imagine that, ah?
The entire Jun household was in a chaos, and everybody was in a hurry.
Something big had happened!
It was outrageous!
The Third Young Master of the Jun Family! Their only surviving scion!
