Reincarnation Mountain was Immortal Demon System’s largest city . The entire place had a territory of one million miles, perhaps even more .
It was more apt to call this place a kingdom rather than a city . However, there was one distinct difference .
The buildings here were built on mountains . Thus, while looking from the outside, everyone would find architectures among the stars due to the height of the peaks, quite a mysterious and awe-inspiring spectacle .
There were about ten thousand or so cities scattered among the mountains . However, only a few were famous . They were connected by numerous rainbows that look even more beautiful after the rain .
These rainbows were actually divine bridges, a way to travel between mountains and cities .
Many sects chose to stay around this area, giving it a special status . It didn’t belong to one particular sect or power . No one could rule it since it belonged to everyone in Immortal Demon System .
People could come and stay for as long as they like with no entry restrictions . The city was ruled by Longevity Hall and all over sects via deliberations .
If any cultivator or sect had feuds with each other, they must leave these personal problems aside after coming into the city .
The only exceptions required consent from both parties to have a fight in the city . Otherwise, the aggressive side would need to wait for their enemy to leave the city .
Those breaking this rule would have to suffer sanctions and punishment from the rest of the system . That’s why everyone considered this city to be a safe asylum .
More often than not, when a sect was on the verge of destruction, they would move all of their disciples here to seek refuge .
This resulted in the city becoming home to many homeless disciples since their sects were no longer around .
For millions of years now, no one has dared to break the armistice found here . The reason was very simple - the cities were built by Everlasting Forefather, from the individual buildings to the peaks .
His rules became the supreme laws . To violate them meant being disrespectful towards the great ancestor and the punishment could be banishment .
So the top of the city had plenty of buildings . People were curious about the base consisting of large plains and valleys . Could people also stay in these places?
Unfortunately, the answer was no because they were actually ancient battlefields .
These battlefields were an incredible place for training . Strong and qualified disciples would go there to train because it was so effective compared to other places .
Future generations didn’t know the background of these places . According to the founding legend of Immortal Demon System, the forefather dragged back these places from the depths of Immortal Lineage then refined them into his own system .
The group was right outside now and Weizheng became emotional while looking at the massive cities .
“Our sect also had several seats and a large estate in this city back then . ” He told the juniors .
“We had an estate here?” The young ones became excited .
Their current sect looked like a small village compared to the grand scale here . Thus, they were country bumpkins visiting the city for the first time . The juniors felt honored that their sect once had territories in this place .
“Yes, Mountguard used to have more than one hundred residences here and a massive mansion . ” Weizheng said softly .
“What happened to them?” Jiahui asked, aware that they no longer had them .
Weizheng smiled wryly and shook his head: “We sold them during the hard times . The sect spent a lot of money on buying pills in order to groom potential talents . This eventually led to bankruptcy and being forced to sell . ”
He felt bitterness about the sharp fall from grace . Their glorious sect was reduced to a third-rate one now .
“Another reason was because Reincarnation Mountain is too far away from our Mountguard . The ancestors needed to use too many true stones in order to open the dao portal for conferences . This expenditure became too much so they decided to withdraw from this place . ” Weizheng added .
Mountguard naturally wanted to keep their territory in this place but it couldn’t keep up with the expenditures .
The group became quiet after listening to their school master . The present was less optimistic for their sect .
“We’ll buy them back again, both our properties and our influence here . Maybe not today, but we’ll get it done during our generation . ” Jiahui eventually broke the silence .
She spoke in such a confident manner that no one could question her determination .
“The responsibility of revitalizing the sect is on you all . ” Weizheng was happy to see the group being positively motivated by Jiahui .
“To the ancient battlefield . ” Li Qiye suddenly interrupted the morale call .
The group didn’t dare to mess around and instantly headed towards one battlefield .
The battlefields below the cities were different with unique characteristics .
Li Qiye told them to go to one placed between two mountains with a stone path for an entrance . After walking up the steps, they saw a massive battlefield ahead .
Broken weapons and armor plates scattered everywhere along with cones . They have lost their divinity because too much time has passed . Nevertheless, these weapons were clearly exceptional judging by their materials . Alas, the tough battles in the past still took them down .
This battlefield had broken mounds, temples, and deep pits - signs of the destruction that took place here .
“So this is an ancient battlefield?” Ruoxi murmured while looking at the area filled with fog and mist .
This was their first time seeing one, same for Weizheng too . His sect didn’t have enough resources to take him here during his youth .
Even if they were willing to make the long journey, they didn’t have powerful seniors to escort them either .
It has been eras since the last battle but the bloodthirst and battle intents remained . It seemed that numerous lost souls were still roaring and battling it out .
