True Martial World - chapter-391
Song Ziyue had already said that the Five Elemental Bone Array was
designed by him. Logically, the person setting up an array holds the
advantage, while the person trying to crack it has the disadvantage.
In a typical showdown, one side would set up an array while the other
would try to crack it. If one could completely crack it, it meant that
the person cracking it exceeded the person who set it up.
Song Ziyue did not take advantage of Lin Yuan in this aspect. He was
proud and thought lowly of Lin Yuan. He had proclaimed that if Lin Yuan
could extract more than 30% of the Power of Desolates from the array,
then Lin Yuan would win.
30% of the Power of Desolates was considered very low.
Being looked down upon by Song Ziyue, Lin Yuan suppressed the raging
flame in his heart, “Such shameless boasting. See how I break down your
If a layman were to look at Song Ziyue’s bone array, that person would
not be able to see anything special about it. It was just like a child
taking a bunch of beast bones and casually stacking them together.
However, when Lin Yuan entered the bone array, his expression turned
serious. He could see that the desolate bones had been processed through
some special techniques.
Desolate bones with the five elements, Metal, Wood, Water, Fire, Earth
corresponded to five elemental desolate beasts, and not any ordinary
For example, the desolate bone in front of Lin Yuan was a general-ranked
desolate beast’s bone.
Lin Yuan could not tell what sort of desolate beast it came from. The
bone looked very special as it was entirely smooth and round, like a

“Song Ziyue may be arrogant, but he indeed has the ability. The array
he set up is made from the combination of the bones from elite-ranked
desolate beasts and general-ranked desolate beasts. The inner circle,
where the array’s core is, there are even bones from king-ranked
desolate beasts. To crack this array, the first thing needed is to find
the array’s cores.”
In the surrounding pavilions, people began to discuss. They never
expected that this was how the Desolate Heaven technique showdown would
be for the matches from Song Ziyue onwards.
However, this method required more technical skills than the clashing of
runic seals. Also, it allowed one to keep on battling.
There might be consecutive failures of people trying to crack Song
Ziyue’s array. This was what he relied on to challenge all of the young
heroes of the Lin family in a tag-team battle.
“This bone should be the central point of the ten plus desolate bones
nearby. It is also one of the cores of this array.”
Lin Yuan had previously counted that this desolate bone array counted a
total of 108 bones. There were 9 bones for the array core, and every 12
bones formed a group. Each group had a central bone and this central bone
was where one of the array’s core was.
If he could break apart this core bone, then this small array group would
Previously, Song Ziyue said that as long he broke 30% of the array, then
Lin Yuan would win.
Although Lin Yuan was indignant with Song Ziyue’s contemptuous words,
he slowly held back his pride as he began examining the Five Elemental
Bone Array. This array was not simple!

Regardless, winning was most important. If he could not even break 30% of
the bone array, it would be too embarrassing.
“I only need to extract the Power of Desolates of 4 desolate bones and
break apart 4 small group arrays to win.”
With this thought in mind, Lin Yuan injected all of his mental energy
into the smooth glass bead-like bone. This bone emitted a searing feeling
and was probably a fire-elemental desolate beast’s bone.
When Lin Yuan sank his perception into it, for some unknown reason, he
suddenly felt faint. It was as if his perception had been absorbed into
the desolate bone, entering a world that was filled with fire.
“Oh? This is!?”
Lin Yuan was alarmed. He immediately pulled back his perception and
exited his consciousness, but at this moment, the round fiery glass-like
desolate bone cracked!
With a fiery explosion, a fire python, which was entirely red in color,
appeared from the desolate bone. This fire python opened its jaws and bit
at Lin Yuan.

Lin Yuan let out a scream. Although it happened suddenly, and his soul
had suffered a backlash, making his head hurt, Lin Yuan was still able to
use all of his strength to send out a punch when the fire python
threatened his life.
With an energy explosion, the fire python was destroyed by Lin Yuan, but
at the same time, the arm Lin Yuan had used to send out the punch
dislocated due to the forceful clash with the fire python. His entire
fist was now covered in blood!
Lin Yuan’s body was also sent flying by the energy surge as he landed
heavily on the square.
His face was pale while his body suffered from some spasms. Clearly, he
Actually, the injury on his arm was nothing. The most important thing was
the damage to his soul. When he had used his mental energy to probe the
desolate bone, he had suffered a backlash from the desolate bone, causing
his soul to be injured.
Such an injury needed to be treated by an extremely good Soul Nurturing
pill. He could not use his mental energy for at least half a month.
“What happened? What happened back there?”
Some of the Lin family’s juniors were puzzled. A glass-like desolate
bone suddenly shattered, popping out a fire python that injured Lin Yuan.
“It is an Essence Qi shadow left behind when a desolate beast dies!”
An old man from the Lin family said. He was extremely surprised that the
junior named Song Ziyue had managed to master such a technique.
“That glass-like desolate bone is actually from a general-ranked
desolate beast, it’s the Flaming Fire Python’s ‘brain stone’ in
its head. Song Ziyue managed to seal the Flaming Fire Python’s Essence
Qi into the brain stone when it was killed. Following that, he used the
brain stone as one of the group array cores of the Five Elemental Bone
“The remaining Flaming Fire Python’s Essence Qi inside the brain
stone contained the resentment of being killed, so once it was initiated,
it would break the brain stone and change into a Fire Python shadow that
could kill. If the reaction of the person who probed it was any slower,
he would have died on the spot.”
Although many Desolate Heaven Masters were not good at fighting, they
were proficient at certain killing techniques, such as setting traps in
desolate bone relics.
This was how one could use the Desolate Heaven technique to kill.
With a trap set inside a desolate bone, even if the person trying to
break the array knew that there was a trap, it would not be easily
cracked. This was because to crack the array, one had to sink one’s
mental energy into the desolate bone, and once that happened, it would
trigger the trap, causing the desolate beast’s essence Qi to form a
backlash to one’s mental energy. The result after that was quite
This could only be avoided if one’s Desolate Heaven technique was
superb, to the point where one could undo the trap Song Ziyue had laid at
the moment one’s mental energy sank into the desolate bone. And Lin
Yuan clearly did not have this ability.
Lin Yuan retreated back to the Evening Breeze Pavilion with his face
pale. After consuming a Soul Nurturing pill, and readjusting his
dislocated arm, he barely managed to regain some Yuan Qi.

“I was careless. Too careless. I accidentally fell into this fellow’s
trap. If I knew that there was a trap in the desolate bone, I would
definitely not have turned out this way.”
Lin Yuan, who returned to the Evening Breeze Pavilion, felt embarrassed
facing his juniors. He had directed the battle previously and arranged
the order in which people went up, making him seem like the leader of the
Evening Breeze Pavilion.
However, the moment he went up he fell into a trap just as he attempted
to extract the first desolate bone’s energy. Thus he lost, even though
Song Ziyue had said that just extracting 30% would give him victory.
He had not even managed to extract a single bit of energy. Having
completely failed, it was too embarrassing!
“This kid first mentioned the 30% of energy to divert my attention,
making me miss the possibility of there being a trap in the desolate
bone. He is too cunning!”
As Lin Yuan gave some thought to it, he began to spout some unconvincing
excuses. Not far away, Yi Yun shook his head gently when he heard him. In
a showdown between Desolate Heaven Masters, it was all about using
one’s ability to create all sorts of obstacles for one’s opponents.
Setting a trap within a desolate bone was a very common practice.
Back when he first came into contact with the Desolate Heaven technique,
and was extracting the Lin Bone Gall, Luo Huo’er, who was unhappy with
him, had set a trap in the Lin Bone Gall. She had hoped that he would
cause it to explode when he injected his mental energy into it, drenching
him in bile.
However, Yi Yun had seen through it, causing Luo Huo’er to succumb to
the trap herself.
Of course, compared to Luo Huo’er’s trap, that was just a mischievous
prank, Song Ziyue’s method of using a desolate beast’s essence Qi was
more lethal. It could kill.

“Anyone else?” Song Ziyue said on stage. He took out another piece of
bone from his interspatial ring, placing it down in the spot where the
Flaming Fire Python’s desolate bone had been. This bone was not a
fire-elemental desolate bone, but a water-elemental one.
This surprised people. Every time Song Ziyue set up the Five Elemental
Bone Array, the arrangement of the desolate bones were different.
Such an ever-changing array was most troublesome as it would be much more
difficult to figure out the rules.
“As long as you a Desolate Heaven technique apprentice below the age of
18, feel free to challenge my Five Elemental Bone Array! If you can break
30% of it, you win!”
Song Ziyue was extremely confident. His provocation made many disciples
of the Lin family angry. Song Ziyue was only 16 years old, yet he
proclaimed that any Desolate Heaven technique apprentice below the age of
18 could challenge him.
However, though people were indignant about it, they knew that it was
certain that the array set up by Song Ziyue was extremely hard to deal
with. Lin Yuan, who was the personal disciple of the middle-aged man
surnamed Sun, was quite outstanding in terms of his Desolate Heaven
technique in the Lin family. Unfortunately, he did not manage to extract
even a single bit of energy from the Five Elemental Bone Array. He lost
Lin Yuan said that he had been careless and fell for the trap, but
everyone knew that Song Ziyue had set up an extremely profound, hidden
trap. This caused Lin Yuan to be unable to discover it, if not, he
wouldn’t have lost so miserably.
Under these circumstances, even if someone had told Lin Yuan that there
was a trap in the bone, he would probably still have been unable to do
anything about it.
Yi Yun looked at Song Ziyue and furrowed his eyebrows. His goal in
participating in the Desolate Heaven technique tea session was very
clear. He was here to mess things up!

Previously, when Lin Yuan attempted to send Yi Yun up to participate in
the 64 people group match, Yi Yun lacked interest. Those who participated
in the group match were a bunch of nobodies. Yi Yun would only waste his
mental energy by going up, it would be meaningless.
He would only go on stage at such a moment when a top Desolate Heaven
Master apprentice from the opposite side appeared. Only then was it time
for Yi Yun to make a move.
Yi Yun stood up and, without a word, walked along the Evening Breeze
The youths in the Evening Breeze Pavilion were curious about Yi Yun’s
action, but at this moment, Yi Yun silently leaped up and, like a
feather, moved towards the center of the square…
And at the same moment Yi Yun leaped, a young girl flew up into the air
from another small pavilion in the central regions of the lake, towards
the square at the lake’s center.
