Unparalleled After Ten Consecutive Draws - Chapter 197
On top of the library were numerous conjurations.
There were landscapes of mountains and rivers which exuded magnificence. There were interchanging sun and moon, which altered between darkness and brightness. There were also various types of strange beasts that flew, their ferocious energy surging into the skies…
Each conjuration contained a kind of mysterious yet magical Daoist Rhyme.
Each one of them was Sage Techniques!
The crowd gulped in terror. Although they were already aware of Chu Kuangren’s mystical abilities, they were still quite staggered by the sight before them.
Those were Sage Techniques after all!
Even a sage orthodoxy would only have a few types of it, and to portray them to the outside world was a rare occurrence. Yet why was it that with Chu Kuangren, he was able to showcase so many of it here?
Moreover, they were all his self-creations!
This was simply too unbelievable!
“Is Elder Senior Brother, oh I mean, Sect Leader really a human being?”
“Good heavens, one, two, three, four… nine Sage Techniques. Wait no, it’s still increasing in number to ten. Ten Sage Techniques!”
“It’s worth pointing out that even us Black Heaven Sect only have three Sage Techniques. Even after adding the Heaven-Slaying Sword Drawing Technique that the Sect Leader has created later, we only have a total of four, and now there are ten or maybe even more!”
“How did Sect Leader manage to do that?!”
“Don’t tell me he really is a God who has descended from heaven?”
In the deep reaches of the Black Heaven Sect, the Sages inside the cottages were almost frightened to death as well.
The few Black Heaven forefathers remained silent for a while.
“My goodness, is this guy treating Sage Techniques like Chinese cabbages? Harvesting it whenever he wants to. This is too absurd.” Black Heaven’s Third Forefather might have lived for over ten thousand years, but he was still so astonished by Chu Kuangren that he hurled out a curse word.
Only Sages with a very profound understanding of Daoist Rhymes would be capable of creating Sage Techniques, and even among these people, a Sage Technique could only possibly be created after spending an immense amount of effort and time on it.
Take Black Heaven’s Third Forefather for example; throughout all these years, he had only managed to create one type of Sage Technique which he had used until this day.
So now that Chu Kuangren only took half a day to create a bunch of Sage Techniques in front of their faces, how could they maintain their calm?
“He has entered a state of epiphany it seems.”
Just then, an ancient voice was heard coming out from one of the cottages.
It was the Black Heaven’s Second Forefather. Aside from the First Forefather who had passed on, he was the most senior figure in the Black Heaven Sect.
“Even if it was a state of epiphany, to be able to achieve what he has done is still too ridiculous,” Black Heaven’s Third Forefather said.
“Perhaps his own natural talent is just ridiculously good.”
At the space above the library.
Numerous types of conjurations appeared one after another.
There were a total of twelve, representing twelve types of Sage Techniques!
The crowd stared wide-eyed and mouths agape.
“Is Sect Leader trying to defy the law of nature?” Elder Ruyan gulped as an indescribable shock revealed from her eyes.
“Elder Ruyan, help me get twelve Dao steles!”
Just then, Chu Kuangren’s voice was heard from inside the library.
When Elder Ruyan heard that, she recovered to her senses and left the place in a hurry. It did not take long before she returned with twelve pieces of Dao steles.
Twelve regularly block-shaped Dao steles were placed outside the library’s main entrance. After that, a beam of sword ray swiped past.
The sword ray was incredibly majestic. It was as tremendous as a river valley.
The sword ray landed on the Dao stele, leaving a sword mark on it. Then, countless word symbols began to surface. This was a Sage Technique!
Another sword came by.
The sword ray contained an endless alternating day and night energy.
After that, a vicious green dragon swooped up into the skies. Its razor-sharp teeth and claws emanated with a type of ferocious energy that sent shudders down everyone’s spine.
One by one, Chu Kuangren showcased twelve Sage Techniques that when hit onto the Dao steles formed countless mysterious word symbols and imprinted onto them.
“Today, I’ve self-created twelve Sage Techniques. These twelve Dao steles will be stored on the final floor of the library, where every True Disciple would have access to study and gain insight from them whenever they like,” Chu Kuangren said.
Upon hearing his statement, all the disciples immediately engaged in heated discussions.
“It really is twelve Sage Techniques!”
“The Sect Leader is so overpowered!”
“Only True Disciples would be able to go in and gain insight from it, so it seems like I must put in more effort to become one quicker. Only then will I be able to gain insight from these Sage Techniques.”
“Don’t stop me, I want to go and have a look at it later.”
All the disciples were beaming with joy.
This was especially true for the True Disciples who could not wait to sit right in front of the Dao steles and gain insight into the Sage Techniques right away.
As for those who were not True Disciples, they did not have many complaints either.
After all, Sage Techniques were where a sage orthodoxy’s wisdom lied. It could not be passed down just like that or simply allow anyone to have the chance to learn it.
Only allowing the True Disciples access to it was well within reason because it would motivate all the outer and inner disciples to work harder in their respective cultivations.
After a while.
Chu Kuangren walked out of the library.
He seemed very composed with no hints of joy or suffering on his face. It was as though the incredible feat of self-creating twelve Sage Techniques earlier was not done by him.
“Sect Leader, you have indeed brought us a great surprise!”
Elder Ruyan and the others walked up to him.
“That’s right, all these while, our Black Heaven Set only has three foundation level Sage Techniques. The Heaven-Slaying Sword Drawing Technique that Sect Leader created back then was used for attacking purposes. However, it was a Sage Ruler Technique so it was difficult to gain insight into it. But now that we have these new Sage Techniques, I guess you can say we’ve made amendments to that.”
“Twelve Sage Techniques… Sect Leader, you are truly defying the laws of nature.”
Facing the awe-filled gazes from the few elders, Chu Kuangren only responded with a faint smile. There was not a single sign of delight or pride from his expressions.
He knew for a fact that the people in Black Heaven Sect lacked a Sage Technique that could be used for attack and that was why he self-created so many Sage Techniques today.
He had gained insight from two Emperor Scriptures back-to-back. Complemented with his Meditational Clarity Trait, his apprehension of Dao Techniques was incredibly profound.
Besides, only by using the Starlight Grade Enlightenment Card could he self-create twelve Sage Techniques.
In fact, he created these Sage Techniques based on various types of cultivation techniques available in the Black Heaven Sect. He extracted the essence from them and removed any impurities in his creations so that the efficiency would be increased when the Black Heaven Sect disciples cultivate these Sage Techniques.
“But it’s a shame that these were all normal Sage Techniques. I initially intended to create two Sage Ruler Techniques. Looks like my apprehension towards Dao Techniques was still not profound enough,” Chu Kuangren mumbled to himself.
At that, the lips of Elder Ruyan and the other elders twitched.
What joke was this?
Creating twelve Sage Techniques in the span of half a day and he still felt that his apprehension towards Dao Techniques was not profound enough…
In that case, they thought that the rest of the cultivators in this world might just as well commit mass suicide.
With what Chu Kuangren said, they suddenly felt like all these years of living were reduced to nothing.
“Sect Leader, please don’t say such things again. It’s really too battering for the rest of us.” Elder Ruyan let out a bitter smile and said.
Chu Kuangren let out a light laugh upon hearing that. “I was just testing your Daoist cores.”
“Our Daoist core is nearly crumpled, dear Sect Leader.”
The few Elders wanted to cry but no tears came out.
After he was done with his creation of twelve Sage Techniques, he left the rest of the matter for Elder Ruyan and the others to settle.
Although they were shocked by what Chu Kuangren had achieved today, the elders were still rather delighted by it. He had even given them the power to name these Sage Techniques, which made them utterly touched.
Deep within the Black Heaven Sect, the few forefathers had witnessed clearly the whole process of Chu Kuangren’s self-creation of twelve Sage Techniques.
“I’ve been in his position for a thousand over years, yet all my merits combined could not be compared to his self-creation of twelve Sage Techniques today.”
One of the forefathers made a self-deprecating remark and lamented.
“Can’t say I disagree with that.”
“To know that he ascended to his Sect Leader position just yesterday.”
“With these twelve Sage Techniques, the wisdom of our Black Heaven Sect would be strengthened by quite a bit. Our sect has been blessed by a lucky star!”
