True Martial World - chapter-69
In an elegant courtyard, there sat an old man dressed in fine clothes
playing chess with a girl dressed in white clothes.
“Master, it’s your turn.” The girl in white smiled. This girl was
the girl, Lin Xintong that Yi Yun had the chance to meet. And the old man
she addressed as master, was of course old man Su.
“Eh…” Old man Su knitted his brow in concentration as his fat
finger tightly squeezed a chess piece, indecisive of his next move.
He had used various excuses to avoid the last eight chess matches, he had
once again, been forced into a corner by Lin Xintong. Seeing that his
king was about to abdicate, and he did not have any way to get out of his
“Ke Ke…Xintong, your chess skills have improved and resemble my
skills of the past. Looks like I have to get serious…” The old man Su
brazenly said it made Lin Xintong snigger, but all she did was to urge
her master to make his next move.
Lin Xintong seldom smiled, only in front of old man Su would she display
the small liveliness a young girl would normally display. In Lin
Xintong’s mind, old man Su was both her master and grandfather.
At this time, a voice came from the door,” This lesser commander, by
order of the Emperor is here to deliver a letter to Grand Master Su.”
“Ah? There’s a guest,” said old man Su as if his savior had
arrived. “Not playing anymore, not playing anymore. A guest is here.
Xintong, bring the pot of tea here.”
With that old man Su, used his fat arms to swipe across the chessboard,
messing up all the chess pieces.
“Eh…” Lin Xintong was speechless and said with humor, “Your tea
disciple had already prepared the tea. Master had been too focused on the
game that you didn’t drink it.”

“Eh?” Old man Su looked at the teapot on the table as he blinked
Fortunately, the Jin Long Wei’s Thousand Households Zhang had entered
the yard and cupped his hand, saluting old man Su.
“This lesser commander, by order of the Emperor, is here to deliver a
letter to Grandmaster Su. May Grandmaster Su look over it.” As Zhang
Tan said it, he placed the letter on the chess table politely. It was a
red letter with a seal rune on it.
Old man Su’s main reason for being at the Tao tribal clan was to wait
for the letter that Zhang Tan brought him.
He took the letter and with a serious look on his face casually said,
“Zhang Tan, right? You’ve worked hard. Have some tea.” Zhang Tan
paused for a moment and glanced at the teacups on the table.
He was a careful person. He could see that the tea was drank while old
man Su and Lin Xintong played chess, and it was most likely brewed by Lin
Lin Xintong was a person of great stature that many elites from the big
families chased after. She may one day be betrothed to a prince of the
Tai Ah Divine Kingdom and become a princess, and may one day become
As a Thousand Household of the Jin Long Wei, Zhang Tan would be courting
death to drink tea brewed by a future empress!
Although it was unlikely, Zhang Tan had to consider the big picture as a
Jin Long Wei Thousand Household when dealing with all kinds of people.

He immediately replied, “Thank you Grandmaster Su for the offer, this
lesser commander still need to return to report, so I’ll not drink.”
Zhang Tan followed etiquette to the letter, and was proper with his
words, but old man Su was a person with no fixed place of abode, so even
the Kingdom’s royalty would have to treat him with courtesy. He was not
mindful of the etiquettes of the world, nor was he interested in it.
“Alright, you can leave then.” Old man Su waved his hand and waited
till Zhang Tan left. He tore up the wax and with a few hand gestures
released the seal.
After that, old man Su took out something inside the envelope. It was not
a letter full of text, but a diagram.
When Old man Su took out the diagram, an ancient beast ghost image rose
up before disappearing. It was like a curl of smoke.
Seeing this diagram, old man Su’s eyes lit up. It was as if he was a
poor vault guard seeing treasure.
He said to himself, “This Cloud Wilderness might really have some
treasure! If Marquis Wenyun could not do it himself and needs my help…
Looks like the Kingdom’s search for treasure was not in vain!”
“Master, what’s the matter with the diagram?” asked Lin Xintong,
who was pondering on the side as she looked at the ancient beast ghost
image that had already dissipated.
She could not tell uncover the mystery from the diagram, but could feel

Old man Su said, “This diagram is something that was passed down from
ancient times. I do not know if it’s related to the Purple Clouds’
Birth, but even it doesn’t, it’s something quite good! Xintong,
don’t worry. I will search to the ends of the world just to find a way
to join up your broken meridians.
Ever since Lian Chengyu failed to break through into the Purple Blood
realm, the Lian tribal clan had quietened down. There were no more grand
scenes of hundreds of people on the mountains picking herbs, nor were
their strong men fanning the fires in the grain-sunning ground.
The news that Lian Chengyu was injured had been covered up. All the
people had believed that Lian Chengyu had broken into the Purple Blood
realm, and had increased his strength by leaps and bounds!
Now, all they had to do was to wait for the Kingdom’s selection; Lian
Chengyu would become a Kingdom warrior and bring the Lian tribal clan to
a better life.
This day, the sky was dotted with snow as the clouds hung low. A large
eagle was flying in the skies of the Lian tribal clan.
This eagle had a wingspan of over ten meters, and its flight picked up a
gust of wind, causing the snow to dance in a chaotic manner.
How could the poor of the Lian tribal clan have ever seen such a big
Visit for a better experience
“Is it a fierce beast? Or could it be a…desolate beast!?”
Seeing such a large eagle had panicked the people. Typically under the
protection of a wonderland, normal fierce beasts or desolate beasts would
seldom encroach into the vicinity of a tribe.
But those were under “typical” conditions, there could be instances
when fierce beasts or desolate beasts would charge into the wonderlands
that hosted people, resulting in a mass murder.
That had the same meaning as genocide. There were numerous small tribes
in the entire Cloud Wilderness, so it was of no matter if a few small
tribes were to collapse.
If it was really an attack by a desolate beast, it would be a tragedy for
the Lian tribal clan!
As the people panicked, the large eagle suddenly dropped something that
began burning in the sky.
“Peng!” A large explosive sound resulted in a row of text appearing
in the sky.
Each of these words would have taken half an acre of land if they were
placed on the ground. In the sky, this allowed anyone in the entire
region of the Lian tribal clan to see it clearly.
“In three days at noon, the Jin Long Wei will send ambassadors to the
Lian tribal clan and take with them ten warriors to the Tao tribal clan
for the selection. Those who pass the selection will become the
Kingdom’s warriors, members of the Jin Long Wei! The ten people have to
be below the age of twenty-eight. They are to be chosen from those who
had passed the preliminary examination and up to be decided by the

Seeing the large row of text, everyone paused. The Kingdom’s selection,
the Kingdom’s selection is finally beginning!
After all these days of waiting, and all that they had sacrificed, it was
here! The day they had been waiting for was here!
