After silently staring for a while, Ling Chen tried touching the stone slab with his hand, trying to see if there was a secret passage or item beneath it. However, just as his hand was about to touch the stone slab, an ancient voice suddenly sounded in his ears, “Are you sure you want to try?”

The voice was incredibly ancient and faint. It seemed to come from the faraway edges of the sky, and it also gave off a mysterious aura. Ling Chen’s hand froze above the stone slab and quickly raised his head, calling out, “Who is it?”

The ancient voice did not answer him, and it instead continued to say, “For you to be able to enter here is proof that you’re the successor of the Feng Chen Sect of this generation. However, the age of gods has concluded, and it will be difficult for the power that I’ve left behind to once again shine with glory. If you succeed, when you unleash the Feng Chen Sect’s ultimate curses, apart from True Gods, nothing in this world will be able to escape your control. If you fail, your mind will be greatly damaged, and you may never recover… are you sure you want to try?”

“What do you mean by trying?” Ling Chen quickly looked around, but he was unable to find the source of the voice.

However, the ancient voice once again ignored his question, leaving the stone room in silence.

Ling Chen finally concluded that this voice was not from someone who was hiding, but the voice of a soul left behind in this soul slab from a long time ago. When someone was about to touch the stone slab, it would automatically speak.

If you succeed, when you unleash the Feng Chen Sect’s ultimate curses, apart from True Gods, nothing in this world will be able to escape your control.

If you fail, your mind will be greatly damaged…

Ling Chen completely ignored the consequences of failing. All of his attention was focused on the fact that if he succeeded, apart from True Gods, nothing could escape his control. That’s right, everything! Even the incredibly powerful Shura would not be able to say such arrogant words. It was impossible for Ling Chen to tell whether those words were true or not, but they would greatly shock anyone who heard them – who wouldn’t want the ability to control everything? Who could resist it?

However, just what sort of power was it to dare claim that it could control everything?

Ling Chen’s heart started to rapidly thump. That’s right, even he had been greatly attracted by those incredibly arrogant and proud words… at the same time, he was currently in the 3 Moon Goddesses’ barrier and had no paths of retreat. The Shura’s incredibly powerful attack power was useless to him, so if he really could obtain the power to control everything, why would he have to feel fearful in his current predicament?

“This power… could it be the Feng Chen Sect’s ultimate secret technique? Can it really control everything… could this be true?”

Ling Chen muttered to himself in a low voice, his frown becoming deeper and deeper. Looking at the stone slab right in front of him, he only hesitated for a few moments before making his decision and pressing his hand against the stone slab.

The instant his hand came into contact with the stone slab, the seeming-ordinary stone slab suddenly flashed with a bright light. Suddenly, Ling Chen clearly felt an incredibly substantial wave of energy flow up from the stone slab and go through his arm into his entire body. Finally, it reached his head and crashed into his mind.

Ling Chen’s mind went blank, and the scene in front of him became completely white. However, Ling Chen’s mind was still completely clear. He felt that this was not a mental attack, but rather, an external power was trying to fill his mind with a powerful wave of mental energy. If he could withstand it, this energy would be his to use. However, if his mental energy was not strong enough and he could not resist this energy, then his mind would explode like a balloon… this energy would explode, and his mind would also be damaged. If the damage was light, he would temporarily lose consciousness, but if it was severe, his mind might dissipate, and he would become a vegetable.

Upon realising this, Ling Chen calmed down. He closed his eyes and calmed himself down, relaxing his body, allowing the energy to flood into his mind. He knew that his mental energy was incomparably powerful after being released by the Shura’s power; on earth, only Fey’s mental energy could be compared to his. Compared to normal people, their mental energy was stronger by many times; at the very least, their mental energy had already exceeded the limits of humans, and it had reached the level of ‘gods’ according to the Mad Scientist.

However, even if what the Mad Scientist had said about their mental energies reaching the levels of ‘gods’ was true, that was only their mental energies – their bodies and strength had not reached such a level. As such, even though Ling Chen and Fey’s mental energies had reached the level of ‘gods’, because of their body’s restrictions, they could not manifest the true might of their mental energies.

As an analogy, a normal person’s mental energy was like a balloon that was blown to the size of a soccer ball. Ling Chen’s ‘balloon’ was the size of a lake, but with Ling Chen’s current strength, he was unable to blow that ‘balloon’ to the size of a lake, wasting most of his power due to his body’s limits. However, if a powerful external energy was sent into a normal person, their balloon would explode, while Ling Chen’s would expand to its true potential.

As Ling Chen calmed down, the wave of energy flooding in became more peaceful. The feeling that his mind was being assaulted gradually disappeared, and his vision and hearing slowly returned to normal. Finally, Ling Chen could only feel a stream of warmth joyously rushing into his body until the light in the stone slab disappeared.

This stone slab was from an ancient god clan, and it had existed for tens of thousands of years. However, after the True Gods all fell, no one in the Feng Chen Sect had been able to bear the stone slab’s energy, and they were instead overwhelmed by the energy, their minds damaged. Afterwards, less and less people dared to attempt to receive this power, and more and more Feng Chen Sect Leaders would warn their successors not to touch the stone slab at the Heart End Cliff.

As for Ling Chen, apart from the impact he felt at the very beginning when he had not expected it, everything went incredibly smoothly. The energy from the stone slab was perfectly absorbed into his mind, becoming part of his mental energy.

Ling Chen slowly moved his hand away from the stone slab and opened his eyes, which seemed even deeper, and they flashed with a strange light.

“Ding… you have successfully accepted the ancient Feng Chen Sect’s inheritance of power. Your sight, hearing, smell, touch, detection abilities, focus, and reaction speed have all been greatly improved. Comprehension+80, and you have obtained much greater comprehension of your skills, making it easier for your skills to be levelled up and advanced.”

“Ding… because of your incredibly high Comprehension, you have comprehended the War God ultimate skill [Eternal Battle Soul].”

“Ding… under the [Holy Spirit’s Gift]’s effects, your skill [Eternal Battle Soul] has been raised to LV5 (max level).”

“Ding… you have successfully unlocked the advanced Feng Chen Murdering Heart Curses [Devastating Beauty Curse], [Descending Sovereign Curse], [Heart Murdering Soul Executing Curse], [Ultimate Sheepy Curse], [Body Cleansing Wild Dance Curse].”

“Ding… you can use the Feng Chen Forbidden Curse [Soulstealing Curse] +12 times and [Soulkilling Curse] +6 times.”

“Ding… you have unlocked the Feng Chen Ultimate Curse [Yama Curse].”

The bonus 80 Comprehension gave Ling Chen a big fright, and he almost thought that he had heard incorrectly. This was because even with Xiao Hui’s powerful [Holy Spirit’s Aura], Ling Chen’s current Comprehension was only 35, which was already an astronomical figure among players. However, this time, he had received a whole 80 points, making it so that his Comprehension was now above 100, and it had reached 115!

Just what did a Comprehension of 115 mean? Perhaps even peak existences like the Underworld King or Sea Emperor would faint after seeing such a number.

In his excitement, Ling Chen opened his skills page and looked at his new abilities.

Yama’s power has become synonymous with the highest level of one’s mental energy.

[Author’s Note: after killing the 10 ancient demon beasts, Ling Chen’s level is LV85].
