True Martial World - chapter-803
Black Bamboo said, “Your Highness Pingnan, in recent years, the Fire
Cloud State has been doing waves of heavy recruitment, but although many
are recruited, the quality is just average. The ones who are likely to
excel at the Luo Divine Hall trials from the Fire Cloud State are still
those core disciples from the Heaven Fire Hall, such as Tianshi, Ranyu
and Guluo. Just the amount of time they have cultivated in the Heaven
Fire Hall has exceeded sixty years.”
“These few people, especially Tianshi, are very famous. In recent years,
Tianshi has done the Fire Cloud State proud during exchanges between
disciples from the Fire Cloud State and the surrounding Luo clan states.
He has been praised by Marquis Fire Cloud on several occasions.”
Marquis Fire Cloud was the person who had authority over the Fire Cloud
State. In the 196 states of the Luo clan, each state had a marquis in
charge of it.
There was competition amongst the different marquises as well. The Fire
Cloud State was considered average amongst the 196 states, so during any
martial arts exchange, the Fire Cloud State’s results could only be said
to be satisfactory. However, Tianshi was usually the one who stood out
from the flock. Even amongst the 196 states, he was first class.
“I know about Tianshi…” Prince Pingnan slightly sighed, “We even get
wind about him in the royal capital, such as how Tianshi’s attainments in
the fire-elemental laws are outstanding and that even against other
geniuses, he can leapfrog levels and defeat them!”
Although Prince Pingnan was praising Tianshi, he was not pleased at all.
This was because Tianshi was not under their camp. This also meant that
the stronger Tianshi was, the stronger the enemy was.
In fact, it was not only limited to Tianshi. Even Ranyu and Guluo could
be considered as leaning towards Prince Crimson Firmament if they had to
forcefully trace the relation trees. The reason was very simple. These
people had been cultivating in the Heaven Fire Hall for sixty years and
when was Princess Purple Spirit born? It wasn’t even as long as those who
had joined the Heaven Fire Hall!
Princess Purple Spirit had become a heir apparent entirely based on her
talent. Of course, Xuanhou’s family background wasn’t weak either. In
order to help Princess Purple Spirit vye for the throne, many geniuses
from her family had been sent into the Luo clan to help Princess Purple
Spirit stabilize her footing.
The succession of the throne did not only consider talent. It also looked
at heritage and prestige. It needed to see if people were willing to
follow the heir. Hence, be it Princess Purple Spirit or Prince Crimson
Firmament, they were recruiting more disciples and incorporating them
into their own factions.
“Talk about those disciples that recently joined the Heaven Fire Hall.”
Prince Pingnan said.

Most of the older disciples of the Heaven Fire Hall were under Prince
Crimson Firmament’s camp. After all, back at that time, Prince Crimson
Firmament was the most likely heir apparent. Who didn’t want to associate
themselves with such a mighty force? If he became Emperor in the future,
they would easily enjoy success in the future.
And once the allegiance was formed, betrayal was no longer an option. If
one were to betray mid way, neither side would be pleased having a
betrayer in their camp.
Only new Luo clan disciples had the choice to choose between the two
Fairy Black Bamboo said, “If we are talking about new disciples, then
there is no way to compare them with older disciples. The cultivation
time is just too short and they would be greatly disadvantaged when it
comes to aspects like laws. If you insist on new rookies, Luo Fengling is
considered a good one. She has pretty good talent and has only entered
the Heaven Fire Hall for five years. She is hardworking in her
cultivation, but it is hard to tell what results she would get when she
joins the Luo Divine Hall trials.”
Fairy Black Bamboo shook her head. The Luo Divine Hall trials were held
once every sixty years. Only Luo clan disciples below the age of a
hundred years old could participate.
Many Luo clan disciples would usually need to cultivate for seventy or
eighty years for them to be able to stand out during the Luo Divine Hall
Nearly a century’s worth of accumulation was no trifling matter.
Of course, the Luo Divine Hall trials were not a simple test of strength.
Those at a younger age would be at an advantage during the final
evaluation, but its advantage was inferior to nomological insights and
“Are there no more other new disciples?”
Now with Xuanhou in desperate need to expand her forces, Prince Pingnan
did not expect new disciples to be able to obtain any amazing results in
the Luo Divine Hall trials. However, since new disciples and old
disciples were not judged on the same criteria, it was still possible to
gain the attention of the upper echelons by showing their latent
potential even if they did not perform well. This would augment Princess
Purple Spirit’s prestige as well.
“There are many disciples that can be considered but I doubt any of them
will be worthy in Your Highness Pingnan’s eyes. However, if Your Highness
Pingnan does not want to limit it to the Heaven Fire Hall, I have a good
candidate to recommend from the Earth Fire Hall.”
“Earth Fire Hall?”
Prince Pingnan was slightly stunned when he heard the name Earth Fire
In his point of view, the Earth Fire Hall only had second-tier disciples.
It was difficult for elites from the Heaven Fire Hall to attain much at
the Luo Divine Hall trials, what more Earth Fire Hall disciples.
He frowned and said, “There is actually an Earth Fire Hall disciple that
can do well at the Luo Divine Hall trials? Who is it?”
Black Bamboo smiled and said, “I don’t dare to guarantee that he will do
well, but in the entire Fire Cloud State, ignoring Tianshi, Guluo and
those Heaven Fire Hall disciples that have cultivated for sixty years or
so, this person is the best choice amongst all new disciples. He happens
to be in front of Your Highness Pingnan.”
As Black Bamboo said that, she looked at Yi Yun.
Prince Pingnan as well as “Uncle Dragon” beside Prince Pingnan also
turned to look at Yi Yun.

Prince Pingnan was somewhat taken aback. He never expected that the
inconspicuous young man behind Fairy Black Bamboo was so highly
recommended by her.
“He is the best candidate amongst new disciples?”
Prince Pingnan sized up Yi Yun and asked, “What’s your name?”
“This lowly one is Yi Yun.” Yi Yun said as he clasped his fists.
“Yi Yun…” Prince Pingnan pondered for a moment and at this point, Fairy
Black Bamboo had already informed Prince Pingnan about what Yi Yun had
done during the fire-mining process from before through a voice
Prince Pingnan was quite surprised hearing this. “Oh? There was such a
thing? To be able to gain the recognition of the Spirit of the Earth Fire
despite having just entered the Earth Fire Hall, and even managed to
snatch the Earth fire from a senior Earth Fire Hall disciple. That is
indeed not bad.”
Prince Pingnan nodded. Actually, a figure like Yang Zishan was completely
inconsequential in Prince Pingnan’s eyes. Yang Zishan was just an Earth
Fire Hall disciple and was considered nothing compared to a top genius
Hence, the reason why Prince Pingnan used the words “not bad” to describe
Yi Yun was because he was still young and had yet to cultivate for three
decades, so he had a promising future.
“Unfortunately, if we wait another sixty years with you cultivating under
me during that period, you might be able to obtain pretty good results at
the Luo Divine Hall trials when you approach the age of a hundred years
old. It is a pity that you have to participate in it when you have yet to
fully mature. However, the upcoming Luo Divine Hall trials are too
important. The succession of the throne would probably happen before the
next Luo Divine Hall trials. I have to use whatever men I have, so I’ll
give you a nomination spot. Just do your best!”

After Prince Pingnan said that, he stopped looking at Yi Yun and
continued chatting with Fairy Black Bamboo. Yi Yun was indeed too young.
It was exceedingly rare for someone to achieve anything during the Luo
Divine Hall trials at the age of thirty. There were very few who could do
that even in the entire history of the Luo clan.
