True Martial World - chapter-233
Yi Yun sat down cross-legged in front of the wall with the four sentences
written on it.
He figured that the old man must have brought him here to take a look at
the four lines of words.
This ancient tomb was already empty. Before, there were battle sabers,
treasures and inheritance buried here, but they were all gone now, and
the only thing left behind was the tomb owner’s words.
These words were full of a relentless dominance that was shocking to
“Oh? These words…”
After Yi Yun stared at the four lines for a while, he realized that they
contained an inexplicable concept. Each word, each stroke, was shiny,
like a saber beam that seemed to break out from the wall! It was as if
these words were a display of saber techniques!
Upon discovering this, Yi Yun began focusing his spirit and stared
unblinkingly at the four lines.
Each word had a different concept from the other. But when they were
combined together, it gave one a consistent and natural feeling.
“I get it!” Yi Yun’s eyes lit up. “The person who inscribed these
words demonstrated his insight on the saber truths, which he obtained
over his entire life!”
“These words may not be a saber technique formula. They are even better

There was a concept within these words, but Yi Yun could not comprehend
it. He could only roughly feel it and try to fathom it. But he was weak
when compared to the person who left behind these inscriptions. Although
Yi Yun had extraordinary perceptivity, he was unable to gain
“It’s so deep…”
Yi Yun knitted his eyebrows. These four lines were like four sets of
Each saber technique had its own saber truths. In Yi Yun’s current
state, it was just wishful thinking to hope that he could understand
In fact, the old man who brought Yi Yun here did not expect Yi Yun to
gain much insight.
But if Yi Yun could gain even a tiny amount of insight into the
“truth”, it would be extremely beneficial for him!
The road of martial arts was a long path.
This “truth” was the laws of the way. If at the beginning, one could
point straight to the primeval source along the long path, then even if
traversing the path was filled with difficulties, as long as one could
endure it and fully understood it, one could skyrocket, achieving great
Of course, those who had no talent would not dare to take this arduous

This path was fraught with difficulties and there would be delayed
achievements and breakthroughs. At one point in time, one would grow
frail with age and they would lose their potential. One could die of old
age without reaching the realm of a human lord. Then what was the point
in cultivating martial arts?
“I guess this old man has high regards for me…” Yi Yun muttered to
himself. It cost one glory point to stay in the ancient tomb for one day.
It was possible for a person to not gain any insight. So an ordinary
person would not risk it.
It was most likely that in every batch of rookies, only figures like Qin
Haotian and Luo Huo’er, would have the opportunity to enter the tomb!
“I don’t think I’m the only person who has entered this ancient
tomb. I wonder what people like Qin Haotian learned?”
Yi Yun did not believe that the old man had decided he was a future sage
with a glance. It was most likely that he chose people, who were
outstanding, to test them in the ancient tomb.
Those who could learn anything could stay behind.
Those who could not learn anything had no choice but to give up.
With this thought in mind, Yi Yun suddenly had an idea. He let his
spiritual energy interface with the Heaven’s eyeball and the Purple
Crystal, and then, he opened up his energy vision!
By now, Yi Yun’s energy vision was almost perfect. Everything in the
world was formed of energy; so in his vision, all the superficial
appearances were ignored, leaving behind only the ultimate source!

When Yi Yun used his energy vision to look at the words, Yi Yun was
“Oh? This is…”
Yi Yun’s breathing stagnated. Typically when one engraved words on
stone, words were words. There was nothing special with marks on stone.
But these four lines were completely different. In his energy vision,
these words were no longer static words, but flowing energy lights.
This astonished Yi Yun. This great person had left behind words that
embodied within them laws and yet, the energy had not dissipated after
tens of millions of years!
Yi Yun realized that this energy was totally different from the energy of
the primordial species or herbs.
He could control the energy from the primordial species and herbs with
the Purple Crystal and he could absorb them to raise his level.
But the energy within these four lines seemed to be an independent system.
The energy that these words contained was not strong, but it felt
Visit for the best novel reading experience
Yi Yun felt that he had been exposed to a lot of things in the short
period of the past two hours.
It was like a mysterious door had suddenly opened before him and it was
sending a wave of all sorts of primeval truths. Each truth was extremely
mysterious and it was coming straight from the primeval source.
It was a pity that he could not completely understand these truths at his
current level. It made Yi Yun feel like he had many things to learn, but
he was dazzled by it all.
“Take it slow. The road ahead of me is still long. There’s no rush.”
With this thought, he calmed his mind. He took whatever he could get. He
had to start somewhere on that long journey.
As such, Yi Yun began maintaining his energy vision and he began
pondering over the saber truths in the four lines.
From the perspective of the naked eye, these words seemed stationary.
Although they gave off an illusion of jumping out of the wall, it was
still an illusion.
But in the energy vision, it was completely different.

The words were all moving. As they had condensed primeval energy within
themselves, they were slowly flowing!
The bright energy light contained an inexplicable philosophy within them.
It was as if each flow contained a fundamental law.
Yi Yun soon immersed himself in this view. He fell into a trance and
forgot the time of day.
From midnight to daybreak, till noon. The next day’s rookie ranking
competition had begun and Yi Yun was absent.
“Oh? Yi Yun didn’t come?”
Yi Yun was now a prominent figure. He was noticed everywhere he went. As
an important cultivator, he had a special spot in the arena. As such,
many people noticed that Yi Yun was absent from the rookie ranking
“Today, Chu Xiaoran and Qiuniu will both be having their own battles.
They are already planning to charge into the top 3000. Yet, Yi Yun
doesn’t want to watch their battles?”
As Chu Xiaoran and Qiuniu were challenging veteran cultivators who were
ranked in the top 3000, the atmosphere at today’s rookie competition
was more intense. Many of the fourth and fifth year cultivators in the
Tai Ah Divine City had come to watch!
The arena which was usually empty due to its large area was now packed,
giving off a crowded feeling.

“Yi Yun might not be planning to compete against Chu Xiaoran and
Qiuniu. These two are monsters, but… even if Yi Yun doesn’t plan on
fighting them, he should still show up and watch…”
Many could not comprehend the situation. What was more important than
watching Chu Xiaoran and Qiuniu challenge cultivators in the top 3000?
It could even be said that in a few days time, it would become a battle
between Chu Xiaoran and Qiuniu!
When that happened, even the entire Tai Ah Divine City would scramble to
It was impressive that a battle between two rookies could reach such a
“The battles are starting soon. For a rookie to enter the Earth
ranking’s top 3000 in three months, and for there to be two of them,
this is probably something that hasn’t been seen in the Tai Ah Divine
City for the past few decades!”
People were buzzing with activity. They were all looking forward to
At this moment, in a spacious room above the 90th floor of the central
divine tower, two old men were sitting on chairs. They were looking at a
disk array which was depicting the battles happening in the arena.
One of the two old man was Elder Jian Ge, and the other was the thin old
man who brought Yi Yun into the ancient tomb.

“You took Yi Yun to the saber tomb?” Elder Jian Ge asked suddenly.
The old man nodded and said, “Yes… I find this kid a little
interesting, he might gain some insights…”
“Might…” Elder Jian Ge knit his eyebrows. “Just because of the
word “might”, you took him there?”
Elder Jian Ge was obviously displeased with the old man’s actions.
“So what? The ancient tomb may be a forbidden ground, but there are
certain privileges that still allows one to access it. Besides, even if
the kid doesn’t gain any insight, he has nothing to lose…”
“Nothing to lose?” Elder Jian Ge shook his head helplessly. “Cang
Yan, you always do as you please and do not think it over. It’s not
like you do not know that the primeval truths inscribed in the saber tomb
are too difficult to comprehend. Once it is understood, it would be an
“But if one cannot gain any insight, it will be a waste of time! The
way of the saber truth is too deep. It can easily cause obsession within
a person. What I am afraid of, is that this kid might be too stubborn.
Even after failing, he does not know when to stop. At that point, he
would be wasting his time and energy.”
Time was too precious for young talents.
As for these talents, they were mostly arrogant and determined. This was
generally a good thing, but there were times where it could be a bad

Even if one stopped him, he would always think about those words as if he
At that point, one could not stop him, but neither would stopping him be
right. Based on a person’s perceptivity, it would be a waste of
precious time if one ended up not figuring out anything!
There were many cases like this in the Tai Ah Divine City. There were
even some geniuses who spent their whole lives trying to figure it out,
but they only ended up feeling more and more bitter about it. Eventually,
their lives were wasted away. Hence, the Tai Ah Divine City took the
ancient tomb very seriously. It was not easily opened so they could
prevent accidental access.
But this Cang Yan was erratic. Whoever he found ‘interesting’, he
would take him to the ancient tomb. He was practically harming them!
“Old freak, all sorts of geniuses come to the Tai Ah Divine City for
training. It’s normal to die, yet you are always so careful. How would
you nurture a real expert, like a sage? You may object to my actions, but
just a few years ago, I brought that little rascal, Qin Haotian in there,
and he gained something.”
Qin Haotian was a swordsman. The left of the two chambers in the Tai Ah
ancient tomb was the chamber of saber truth, while the right chamber was
the chamber of sword truth. Of course, Qin Haotian went into the sword
It was a mystery who left behind the words in both chambers.
Elder Jian Ge shook his head, “Qin Haotian was an exception. He was
born for the sword. He is almost one with the sword. Qin Haotian almost
cannot leave his sword and he can only use a sword. You cannot expect
everyone to be like him. As for Yi Yun, he might not be a person who has
to use a saber.”
