Emperor’s Domination - Chapter 2442

Chapter 2442

The vexed god couldn’t do anything when Li Qiye didn’t wish to back off the marriage matter . Though he could make Li Qiye hand over the marriage pact by force, he was still a man of principle and refused to renege .

“Let’s go . ” He grabbed Li Qiye before disappearing into nothingness .

When they emerged again, the clouds were still their companions, only with mountains and hills added as decoration for the sky canvas this time around . Wind God was actually crossing from one dimension to another .  

Because he trained with the word, Xing, movement was his expertise . Not only was his speed matchless, but he could also cross through any dimension and realm . This earned him his title of Wind God .

Of course, an Eternal already had ample movement abilities . After training in this word, he became even more exceptional .

In terms of speed and spatial mastery, he was the best among the five supreme ancestors . Lucidity himself was inferior in this aspect . If Wind God wished to flee, no one in Imperial could stop him .

Their final destination was the magical and awe-inspiring Godstep Sect, one of the five great powers of Nine Secrets .

This was a rather mysterious power in the system . No one knew where its ancestral ground was located, not even some of their disciples .

It was still a scene of clouds as far as the eye can see . At the very end of this cloudy ocean were rolling mountains and hills . Some peaks were large enough to form their own inhabitable areas spanning for thousands of miles . Being shrouded by the clouds only amplified the mysteriousness of these mountains . Waterfalls surged down some of the tall peaks . This looked magnificent just like a river running down from the nine firmaments .

Upon closer inspection, one would find that among this mountain range were several peaks tightly packed together . They were the tallest ones too, seemingly the centerpieces of this area .

This was the central area of Godstep, containing its treasures and resources accumulated across the generations . Only prestigious ancestors had permission for entry .

Godstep had the word, Xing . Obtaining one of these words meant being blessed by the high heavens . Their main legacies and merit laws would be decided as well .

For example, Myriad Formation Kingdom had the word, Zhen, so they became the best lineage at formations and arrays in the system, both in terms of knowledge and power .

As for the Bingchi, they had the word, Bing . Therefore, they were the best blacksmiths available . It was common knowledge in Imperial that the best weapons normally came from the Bingchi, and this was indeed the truth .

Back to Godstep, most of their merit laws and techniques were derived from their secret word .

If there was a marathon contest in Nine Systems, Godstep Sect would surely take the number one spot . They had incredible movement and stepping techniques, granting them peerless speed .

Their disciples enjoyed safety compared to other cultivators since escaping would never be an issue .

Due to these advantages, Godstep could transmit information at an incredible rate in the past . They had the most comprehensive intelligence network .

In the beginning, many sects paid Godstep high fees in order to buy necessary information and intelligence .

Later on, as Godstep grew in power and had more resources, they slowly stopped participating in this line of business and focused on politics and power-gathering instead until they became one of the five behemoths .

Two people flashed into existence . Wind God had brought Li Qiye onto the highest peak of Godstep . The place was highly guarded . Each inch of mud here was glowing; they have been blessed by powerful augmentation .

There existed a building made out of stone with a wooden plaque carved with two words, Secret Depository . It served as the sect’s most secretive and largest library, containing numerous merit laws and scrolls .

Of course, it also had plenty of ancestral books, mysterious tales, etc…

Outsiders weren’t allowed to enter under normal circumstances, not even the disciples here without permission from the ancestors .

“Creak . ” The heavy doors opened, allowing the two of them to enter .

Though Li Qiye was an outsider, Wind God was a supreme existence in this sect so he could go wherever he wanted .

The building didn’t look large from the outside, but after entering, one would find this place massive - akin to entering a different dimension .

The smell of books assaulted the nostrils - indicative of the great number of books found here .

This collection was comparable to the stars in the sky . Towering bookshelves everywhere with countless books . They contained intelligence and information on top of regular texts gathered across the years by the disciples of Godstep .  

Unlike other lineages and due to their background, the disciples here loved collecting books . It didn’t matter whether the books were useful and precious or not, they still contained information and should be collected .

The scrolls here have also undergone a strict filtering process . Some contained pieces of history and secrets and mysteries of various sects that were figured out by the disciples and recorded in their diaries or notebooks .

All in all, this depository contained the most trustworthy and varied information about Imperial .  

For example, when and how a certain progenitor overcame his inner demon during a dao enlightenment session…

Or just gossip - how many wives did one progenitor have, how many lovers… Secrets were no longer secrets here .

Wind God brought him to the section containing ancient recordings and said: “Everything in this depository is open to you, with the exception of the merit law and technique sections . You can read anything else . ”

Wind God was being very generous, letting an outsider into their best library on top of letting him read virtually everything else . One couldn’t ask for more .

Li Qiye smiled and went to the corner furnished with a table and chair made out of stone . On the table were one lamp, an inkstone, inkstick, and ink brush . It was obvious that people used to record mysteries down in this place .

However, that was all in the past . There was a layer of dust on the table now .

Li Qiye casually took out a scroll made of deerskin from a bamboo cylinder . He opened it and found that it was an incomplete map . A casual glance left a smile on his face .

“Looks like your sect hasn’t partaken in recording history and rumors for a long time now . ” Li Qiye said .

Wind God didn’t answer since it was true . As the sect grew stronger, fewer and fewer disciples were willing to play the roles of historians and intel-gatherers, let alone doing something as dry and dull as recording them down .

In the present, a few still enjoyed finding information, but anecdotes and information recorders have been gone for several generations .

In fact, Li Qiye was the first person in a very long time who was interested in the texts here . Godstep disciples only wanted to cultivate and chase after power . They coveted mighty merit laws and treasures, not boring history .

Wind God became surprised to see Li Qiye focusing and enjoying the map .
