In front of the portal, Mo Heng hesitated for a moment before slowly saying, “In fact, this world is deeply related to the human world and the outsider races! As far as I know, there are Netherspirits, Devils, and Bonedrudes in this world.”
He continued with a troubled expression, “The Netherspirits can be seen as the source of the Phantasms’ bloodline. The Devils are the origin of the Demons’ bloodline, and the Bonedrudes and the Bonebrutes are inseparable.”
Hearing this, Nie Tian and Pei Qiqi were both taken aback and exclaimed, “What?”
“It’s true,” Mo Heng added, “The Netherspirits, Devils, and Bonedrudes of this world have all wanted to lay a hand on our world since the Primal Era and the Desolate Antiquity Era. However, Star Behemoths were the overlords in the Primal Era. Not only did the three races fail to benefit from their invasions, but they also suffered great losses.
“However, I vaguely heard that they played an important role in the extinction of the Star Behemoths.
“After the era of the Star Behemoths was over, Ancientspirits, led by titans, Ancientbeasts, and dragons, took over the world. The strongest Ancientspirit experts approached and fought the Netherspirits, Devils, and Bonedrudes. Numerous powerful creatures perished in battle.
“After that, the Netherspirits, Devils, and Bonedrudes changed their tactics and adopted another approach, where they created Phantasms, Demons, and Bonebrutes in the world where our ancestral land is.
“These three outsider races aren’t native races. They were born in mysterious ways after the Netherspirits, Devils, and Bonedrudes performed some sort of bloodline irrigation.
“At the end of the Desolate Antiquity Era, led by the Phantasms, the Demons, Bonebrutes, Fiends, Birdmen, Stonemen, Blackscales, and others joined up to fight against the Ancientspirits. After those battles, they won some say and their own domains in the world controlled by Ancientspirits.
“Originally, the Netherspirits, Devils, and Bonedrudes in this world intended to achieve their goal of invading the Ancientspirit world through the Phantasms, Demons, and Bonebrutes.
“However, after the strongest experts of the Phantasms, Demons, and Bonebrutes grew into grand monarchs, the imprints hidden in their bloodlines were awakened. After they learned the source of their bloodlines and their creators’ plot, they turned against them and refused to work for them as their tools.”
Nie Tian listened attentively. Then he suddenly understood, and said, “That is to say, the bloodline sources of the Phantasms, Demons, and Bonebrutes are the three outsider races in this world. They created them through the Nether River, their bloodlines, or other means? The purpose of the Phantasms, Demons, and Bonebrutes’ existence was only to help them smoothly invade the world where the Ancientspirits and we lived?”
Mo Heng nodded.
“Then what bloodline grade do Phantasm, Demon, and Bonebrute grand monarchs have to reach before they can learn these truths from their blood imprints?” Pei Qiqi asked.
“The middle tenth-grade at least. Most of the time, they have to reach the late tenth-grade to do so,” Mo Heng replied. “For example, for Grand Monarch Primal Demon, the Demon high chieftain, Grand Monarch Nether River, the Phantasm high chieftain, and Grand Monarch Crystal Bones, the Bonebrute high chieftain, the imprints hidden in their bloodlines were completely awakened after their bloodlines successfully reached the late tenth-grade.
“The three of them naturally understood the origins of their bloodlines, and the existence of this world.
“However, they don’t want to take orders from the Netherspirits, Bonedrudes, and Devils. Therefore, they won’t even tell their clansmen about the secret behind their origins, but will deliberately hide it from them.
“Again, after reaching levels like Grand Monarch Primal Demon, Grand Monarch Nether River, and Grand Monarch Crystal Bones, how can they possibly be willing to be led by others?”
Hearing Mo Heng’s statement, Nie Tian and Pei Qiqi learned of the ethnic distribution in this world, and that Phantasms, Demons, and Bonebrutes were actually not native races.
“I once went to another gorgeous world through a portal in the depths of the space disruption zone,” Pei Qiqi said.
“That’s a strange zone between two worlds, this world and our human world,” Mo Heng, who clearly knew about it, said, “It’s like the Dead Star Sea, which separates us from the Ancientspirits and the outsiders. In fact, a long time ago, it wasn’t called the Dead Star Sea. It was called the Myriad Stars Sea.
“It’s because humans, Ancientspirits, and outsiders constantly fought each other in the starry river there that eventually led to the explosion of the stars and the accelerated death of the Myriad Stars Sea, which was reduced to the Dead Star Sea.
“The zone between us and the Netherspirits, however, hasn’t been reduced to a sea of dead stars.
“The so-called crooked forces like Feng Beiluo of the Heavenly Corpse Sect and the sectmasters of the Death Curse Sect and the Nether Spirit Society were driven into a corner by the four great ancient sects. Losing their footholds in the human world, they went to live in that zone between two worlds under the guidance of a person.”
Speaking up to this point, Mo Heng gave Nie Tian a look, with a weird expression.
For some reason, Nie Tian knew almost immediately that the person Mo Heng was talking about was his father whom he had never met.
“If the crooked forces are on their last breaths, why haven’t the four great ancient sects marched into that zone between two worlds and wiped them out?” Pei Qiqi asked. “I also saw a lot of hybrids in there. Those hybrids are very young, but growing quickly. Do my master, Senior Chu, and Senior Ji of the Ancient Fragmentary Star Palace know of their existence?”
“They do,” Mo Heng answered.
“Huh?” Pei Qiqi was bewildered.
“They didn’t go to wipe them out, partly because under the guidance of that person, the so-called crooked forces have become so strong that even the four great ancient sects don’t want to fight them,” Mo Heng explained. “On the other hand, it’s because their existence in the zone between two worlds can help the humans be on guard against the Netherspirits, Devils, and Bonedrudes.”
Pei Qiqi was surprised. “If that’s the case, those crooked forces are equivalent to a solid barrier that stands between us and the Netherspirits, Bonedrudes, and Devils of this world, right?”
Mo Heng nodded. “Exactly.”
“What about the Stone Golems? What’s their story?” Pei Qiqi continued asking.
“Some Stone Golems came to this world through the Seven-star Blue Sea in earlier times. It’s a pity that they were enslaved by the Netherspirits shortly after they arrived, and the Netherspirits even cast some evil secret spells on their souls,” Mo Heng said with a sigh. “There are still some Stone Golems living in this world now, helping the Netherspirits open up new realms.
“Those Stone Golems who walked out of the Seven-star Blue Sea through this portal had imprints and evil spells of the Netherspirits branded on their souls.
“The Netherspirits were probably able to learn everything those Stone Golems had done, including returning to their ancestral land in the Shatter Battlefield, through those evil spells.
“They were none other than eyes that the Netherspirits used to explore the human world. The Netherspirits didn’t care about their lives.”
Hearing this, Nie Tian asked, “Why could the Stone Golems pass through the portal?”
Mo Heng didn’t want to hide anything anymore, and said, “That’s because the portal in the Seven-star Blue Sea was created by the Voidspirits of the space disruption zone using the dead body of the strongest Stone Golem. Your bloodline source is the Voidspirits from the space disruption zone!”
“Voidspirits are the most miraculous of all the races in this starry river. And there are extremely few of them. All Voidspirits are born with space bloodlines. Most Voidspirits live in the depths of space disruption zones. When they’re strong enough, they can travel freely between different worlds.
“It’s easy for them to enter and exit this world, the Ancientspirit world, and the human world.
“They built the portal under the Seven-star Blue Sea to facilitate travel between this world and the human world. And because the main material used to build this portal was the body of a powerful Stone Golem who had died, they made an exception, allowing the Stone Golems to pass through the portal.
“That’s why some Stone Golems were able to enter this world through the portal in early times.
“And those Stone Golems are able to return from this world only because they are Stone Golems. Whether the portal is open or closed, there are no restrictions for the Stone Golems, who can easily pass through...”
Mo Heng patiently and carefully explained the secret to both of them.
“Voidspirits. My bloodline source is actually Voidspirits?” Pei Qiqi asked, her eyes bright, “Senior Mo, do you know where the Voidspirits are living now? I, I’m dying to know if my parents are still alive.”
