Chapter 685: The Three-tiered Soul Sacrificial Altar

Translator: Sigma Editor: Hitesh
Shi Yan woke up leisurely.

As soon as he opened his eyes, he was stunned, his face strange.

The Creator’s Divine Pond had been demolished. The spiritual platform and the materials that built the divine pond seemed to have exploded, leaving only dozen-meters wide, pitch-black, deep hole right where the magical formation of the pond was carved. Water immediately filled that pond.

Shi Yan scanned the place. He found that all the top-grade Essence Crystals had turned into ordinary stones. They had no energy surging or any spiritual Qi.

Yang Tian Emperor stood by the large pothole. He looked distressed, with bloodshot eyes, as if he hadn’t slept for several hundred days. He wasn’t in high spirits either.

After a glance, Shi Yan stopped checking around and analyzed his own body.

Astonishment filled his face constantly, as if he had found something miraculous. He looked dumbstruck.

Big changes had happened in his head.

His Sea of Consciousness had expanded by five times. Waves rippled in his brain. Each flow of his Soul Consciousness was now a beam of glorious light. They sparkled radiantly with pure Soul Consciousness energy fluctuating.

His vast Sea of Consciousness started to surge according to some rules of Nature. Flows of Soul Consciousness turned into seawater of the Sea of Consciousness, as if they could create a miraculous connection with his tendons and vessels, giving him a clear change of Essence Qi in his body.

Quieting down his mind, he surveyed his body. A joy that he couldn’t press down flowed through his entire body.

His Sea of Consciousness and the Essence Qi ancient tree had been connected.

Flows of Soul Consciousness could run to the Essence Qi ancient tree in his stomach through his vessels and tendons, which helped him control his Essence Qi and distribute it to his vessels to bring out his supernatural powers.

This was a new concept he had never known before.

In the Spirit Realm, whenever he wanted to urge the Essence Qi in his body, he had to send his Soul Consciousness to his host soul, which sent the waves of consciousness that ordered to gather the Essence Qi. After that, with the transportation through special vessels and tendons, he could carry out the effective martial techniques.

However, it was different now.

Flows of his Soul Consciousness could connect the vessels and the Essence Qi ancient tree. When his thought fell into the Sea of Consciousness like just a small ripple, it could immediately urge the energy in his body.

This reaction speed was much faster than before. In other words, he had another faster and more precise way to control the Essence Qi.

But it wasn’t the only change in his head.

A triangular altar floated above his Sea of Consciousness. It wasn't a real entity, trembling unsteadily. This was made of many beams and spots of light, which stored the mysterious of Life and Death Intent Domain, Star, and Space. The distinctive surging energy of these three powers was unique and mysterious.

Floating atop the altar made of the powers of Death and Life Intent Domain, Star, and Space, was the God Soul. The God Soul didn’t look like Shi Yan’s himself, but more like a chaotic liquid flame. This translucent fluid was murmuring quietly above the altar.

Observing for a while, Shi Yan found that the altar had more than one tier. It had three tiers.

The bottom was his vast Sea of Consciousness. The middle tier stored the mysteries of Death and Life, Star, and Space, where these three powers formed a triangle. Special energy waves rippled and resonated with his God Soul from this tier.

Floating atop the altar was the unshaped flame-like God Soul, which was constantly releasing the soul energy.

The Sea of Consciousness, Upanishads of power, and the God Soul had formed the altar. The Sea of Consciousness was the largest part that established the foundation; Upanishads of power were in the middle, and the fist-sized God Soul topped them like a liquid flame.

As he tried to flicker his thought, he found that his God Soul, the power Upanishads, and his Sea of Consciousness had fused perfectly. His flow of thought wasn’t hindered. As soon as it reached the tier of Upanishad, it could immediately trigger that tier of the altar to rouse the energy. Next, it would connect the Sea of Consciousness, which controlled the body to make the energy, vessels, and muscles cooperate, to engage the tremendous martial techniques.

The God Soul would control everything with the power Upanishads and the Sea of Consciousness as its two assistants. When the God Soul manipulated his blood and muscles with the Essence Qi, he could strike a martial technique with the power from the Upanishad to have an intimidating attack.

Was it the True God Realm?

A beam of doubt flashed in Shi Yan’s head. In the next moment, his spirit flew out from his body with a trace of distraction in its eyes.

Swoosh Swoosh!

A bright silver flame was dancing unsteadily above the Sea of Consciousness, as if it had been banished from its home, having no foothold at this moment.

It was the Nine Serenities Soul Devouring Flame.

While he was breaking through the True God Realm, he had condensed the God Soul, which had expelled this heaven flame from his host soul.

At this moment, Shi Yan had the God Soul, but the flame couldn’t fuse with it anymore, despite the fact that it could still connect with his God Soul.

Shi Yan kept silent. His thoughts crossed the God Soul, as if he was searching for something. He was trying to contact the heaven flame.

After a while, his eyes brightened, and his spirit was high.

The Nine Serenities Soul Devouring Flame told him that when the heaven flame fused, they could be placed at the center of his three-tiered altar, becoming a new tier.

The God Soul was mysterious and inexplicable, which stored the purest miracle of Nature's principle. Once it was formed, it could only contain the Seals of Upanishad, knowledge, and memories. It couldn't hold any other creature. Heaven flames were some sorts of living beings with a consciousness, which meant it couldn’t be fused with his God Soul.

If he insisted on making a fusion, it would be possible if a heaven flame were the perfect match with a Seal of Upanishad he had comprehended. However, he had to erase the memory of the heaven flame to put its seal into the Seal of Upanishad. This would boost the development and breakthrough of that Upanishad Seal tremendously.

However, the three Seals of Upanishad in his God Soul weren't matched with the heaven flames' characteristics. This kind of fusion was hard to carry out.

And, Shi Yan didn’t want to erase the heaven flames’ memories. A heaven flame without intellect and memories wasn’t something he wanted.

Perhaps the Nine Serenities Soul Devouring Flame had recognized his thought, so it sent him this soul thought, giving him a win-win solution: co-existing.

He would have a new sacrificial altar floating above his Sea of Consciousness, which was formed by the heaven flames. It would co-exist with the tier of the power Upanishad to nurture his God Soul. It could use his Sea of Consciousness to shelter and absorb his energy. Of course, it could provide him powers as well.

This structure had the same meaning, with the heaven flames being a special power Upanishad. However, it wouldn’t be combined with the second tier of his three-tiered altar, or connect perfectly with the Sea of Consciousness and the God Soul. Anyhow, they could still support each other well.

Shi Yan didn’t follow its suggestion immediately. He decided to talk to the Ice Cold Flame first. He wanted to know the other flame’s opinion.

After the Ice Cold Flame received his offer, it considered for a while. Eventually, it decided that they could carry out this plan, as it would benefit both of them.

The heaven flames could use his Sea of Consciousness, and the energy from his blood and flesh to nurture themselves, making them stronger. Furthermore, since they didn’t fuse with the God Soul, it would be easier if they wanted to leave him later.

To Shi Yan, when the three-tiered altar had another section made of heaven flames, he could use the power of the heaven flames. When he battled with the others, he could use them at ease.

He didn’t trust the Nine Serenities Soul Devouring Flame much. However, he trusted the Ice Cold Flame more. After he got the Ice Cold Flame’s idea, he started this plan immediately.

When his thought moved, the Nine Serenities Soul Devouring Flame turned into a sea of bright silver flame, staying in a corner of the power Upanishad tier, floating above the Sea of Consciousness.

The Ice Cold Flame and the Earth Flame in the Blood Vein Ring flew out, turning into two small flames that entered his eyes. They flashed and then disappeared into this Sea of Consciousness, staying with the Nine Serenities Soul Devouring Flame.

Two flows of aura, a scorching one and an icy one, bobbed in Shi Yan’s Sea of Consciousness. His God Soul felt irritated a little bit. Later on, when the Ice Cold Flame and the Earth Flame tried to reduce their power, his God Soul gradually adapted.

The auras of the Nine Serenities Soul Devouring Flame, the Ice Cold Flame, and the Earth Flame turned into three streams of unique energies, just like the triangular tier of power Upanishads, which could enhance his God Soul.

He was sensitive enough to sense it.

"We still have another one..." Shi Yan sent his thought to the Blood Vein ring. "Release it. I want to confine it."

The aura of the Corpse Vanishing Flame oozed little by little from the Blood Vein Ring. Shi Yan got this heaven flame from Qing Ming, and it hadn’t been loyal to him yet. He had kept it in the Blood Vein Ring. At this moment, when the ring loosened its confinement, the flame wanted to run away shortly.

Star Chain!

Shi Yan’s soul flickered, and his Sea of Consciousness murmured. The Star Upanishad in the triangle tier was urged.

A crystal clear chain that was sparkling like the stars in the sky stormed out from his heart and twined the Corpse Vanishing Flame, dragging it into his body.

After Yun Hao had entered the city, he had imparted the techniques related to the Star Execution and the Flaming Sun Execution of the Radiant God Cult to Shi Yan. Now, he had the cutting edge of these forces.

This Star Chain was the development of the Star Upanishad, which could imprison soul form beings. It was special confinement for the strange and eccentric souls of creatures.

The Ice Cold Flame’s aura diffused from his eyes. Flows of freezing air extended to the Star Chain, increasing its confining power. The Corpse Vanishing Flame couldn’t wiggle.

"Don’t fail me. I let you enter my inner Sea of Consciousness, which gives you face. If you don’t follow me, I can make you stop struggling forever."

Shi Yan's icy cold soul will entered the green Corpse Vanishing Flame.

The Star Chain dragged him to the Sea of Consciousness. As soon as it got into the Sea of Consciousness, the Ice Cold Flame, the Earth Flame, and the Nine Serenities Soul Devouring Flame swarmed over and restrained it.

The Corpse Vanishing Flame stopped wiggling. It seemed to follow his thought, letting him do whatever he wanted.

At this moment, Shi Yan put aside what was happening in the world out there, magical flames dancing in his cold eyes. Using the technique the Ice Cold Flame and the Nine Serenities Soul Devouring Flame had told him, he used the Sea of Consciousness as the foundation and the God Soul to guide and gather the energy of his body, condensing a proper place on the triangular altar for the heaven flames to rest.

A new expansion, which could help both sides increase their powers, was slowly formed.

In the beginning, the Corse Vanishing Flame had still resisted. Afterward, when he knew Shi Yan's real intentions, it felt joyful and started to cooperate with him more.

It wasn’t stupid. When the flame knew Shi Yan didn’t want to erase its memories and just wanted to live together, it stopped struggling and proactively helped him.
