Chapter 402: Impending Doom
Translator: Yukidaruma Translations Editor: Yukidaruma Translations
"Impending doom?" Fang Xingjian laugh coldly and stomped on the little snake's body.
The little snake twisted crazily, letting out a series of agonizing cries, "Fang Xingjian, you're dead meat. I'm telling you, you're dead meat! I'm one of the top three unrivalled geniuses that the Terrene Shrine has nurtured!
"For having destroyed my army of dragons today, the Terrene Shrine will fight it out with you until either party perishes! Even if I were to die today, someone stronger will come and you won't be able to fend them off. Forget about you fending them off, even the entire Great Western Region can forget about fending them off!"
Fang Xingjian nonchalantly replied, "You're just trying to instil fear and astonishment. If the Terrene Shrine really was so powerful, how could it have been wiped out by the Empire in the past?"
The little snake shouted, "Hmph, wiped out by the Empire? You don't know anything at all. How could ordinary Knights possibly be our match? Only the Krieg royalty, who are located in the central, as well as those Divine level experts could barely be worth mentioning.
"The ones who can truly defeat us are the Church of Universal Truth and the Mage Association."
Fang Xingjian's eyes lit up as he asked, "The Mage Association also had a hand in the battle 25 years ago?"
"Haha, are you trying to get information from me? But so what if you were to know? Once you know about it, you'll truly be able to understand the difference between black magic and Knights. It's one which you'll never be able to catch up to." The little snake let out a cold laugh and said, "Of course the Mage Association participated. They sent out that Silver Robed lunatic."
"Silver Robed?" Fang Xingjian frowned slightly. He knew that black magic had been split into a number of factions. The master of his cousin Fang Xingchen, the Black Mage King, belonged to the Black Robed Mages.
However, Fang Xingjian did not know which factions the Mage Association was comprised of.
"You said that they only sent a single person?"
"One person is sufficient." The little snake looked at Fang Xingjian with a jeer. "Before true experts, numbers mean nothing. Furthermore, Silver Robed Mages have always been passed down to a single person, each generation. However, that person's battle abilities alone would suffice to deal with 1,000 or even 10,000 of you.
"If not for the Church of Universal Truth working together with the Mage Association, how could we possibly have lost? The Empire would have been taken over by us a long time ago.
"Back then, the Empire's Conferred Knights had only participated in some battles on the outskirts and yet they thought of themselves to be stronger than us.
"However, they did not form the crux of the battle."
Fang Xingjian's thoughts fluctuated greatly and he could sense through his Heaven's Perception that there were no changes to the other party's emotions. It seemed that he had not been lying.
'Has the Mage Association really gotten so powerful?'
Fang Xingjian was aware of how powerful the Church was. However, he had never known that the Mages who had managed to get their hands on black magic were supposed to be even more unfathomable.
Fang Xingjian asked again, "Based on what you've said, the Mage Association's abilities are about the same as the Church's? Then why is it that they own so little territory?"
The little snake's eyes curled up as he let out a human sigh, "Compared to the Church, the Mage Association is still a little weaker. Otherwise, how could the Church of Universal Truth possibly be the leaders in this world?"
After saying that, the little snake looked at Fang Xingjian again, saying, "Fang Xingjian, do you understand now? You may think that the Empire is powerful, but to the true wielders of power, to both the Mage Association and the Church, the Empire is something which can be easily destroyed.
"The reason why the Empire still exists is only because both the Mage Association and the Church are wary of each other, thus giving the Knights space to survive.
"Haha... Knights, haha.... Although you have great talent, you've started off on the wrong foot. Since you've already started on the path of a Knight, then you can forget about ever being able to surpass the Mage Association and the Church. Your limits have already been set into stone."
"Is that right?" Fang Xingjian trusted that most of what the little snake was the truth. However, there were probably some parts about the abilities of the Mages which were exaggerated as well. Otherwise, how could the Mage Association possibly choose to not take any action just because they were wary? Had he not just defeated them today?
"Of course!" The little snake stared at Fang Xingjian and said, "For the past 25 years, the Terrene Shrine has spent countless effort to nurture three unrivaled geniuses. This is so that the Terrene Shrine can reign over the entire world and stand up against the Mage Association and the Church in the future.
"Amongst the three of us, I'm the weakest. Moreover, there are also countless bishops in the Terrine Shrine who are old monsters who had lived for over 100 years. Any of them would have stronger powers than me."
Fang Xingjian squinted slightly. The little snake's main prowess was his army of dragons. It was something which even Sasa had not been able to defeat easily. At his level, he would be ranked in the third tier even amongst level 29 Conferred Knights. He could even be at the very top of level 29 Conferred Knights. He was someone who could possibly stand up for a few moves against those in the second tier such as Governor Devitt.
After all, those in level 29 could be said to have the greatest gap in their abilities. Even though they could all be at level 29, some of them might have 100 skill seeds while others might have 1,000; some of them might have refined 10,000 physical particles while others might have perfected the refining of all 1.08 billion particles in their bodies; some of them might have synthesized three sets of techniques while others might have synthesized 30 sets... When all these factors were taken into consideration, the gap became far too wide.
Clearly, it was the same for Mages. Although Fang Xingjian did not know how they cultivated, it was obvious that the differences between their abilities were worlds apart.
However, ever since Fang Xingjian had fought against the Knight on the arena who seemed to have used magic prints, and thereafter, against the bishop at the Terrene Shrine's base and had seen his magic, a guess appeared in Fang Xingjian's heart.
'My body, toward black magic, seems to...'
He looked toward the little snake and said, "You mean that I've offended the Terrene Shrine and am doomed?"
"That's right." The little snake looked at Fang Xingjian with a vicious expression. The reason he had said so much earlier was so that Fang Xingjian would feel wary toward the Terrene Shrine. "Your limit lies there. No matter how much hard work you put in, there's no way that you'll be able to go against black magic. Therefore, even if I were to die, there would be someone even more powerful coming to deal with you. You're doomed!"
"Is that so?" Fang Xingjian said nonchalantly. "Since you feel that I'm doomed, then take me to Terrene Shrine's base."
Fang Xingjian continued, "Take me to Terrene Shrine's base and let them kill me."
"That is impossible! Do you think that I'm an idiot?"
"Are you scared? Since you feel that I'm far from a match for Mages, why don't you dare let me barge into your base?" said Fang Xingjian calmly as he looked at the little snake, wearing a deep and unfathomable expression which made it hard for others to tell what his intentions were.
Right now, the little snake was also extremely baffled. He could not tell what Fang Xingjian was thinking.
'Is there a trap? Are there other people with Fang Xingjian? James? The people with the Second Prince?
'But I didn't sense any presences earlier on. Have they just arrived?'
Just as he was thinking about this, streams of sharp auras seeped out of Fang Xingjian's hand. "If you're unwilling, I won't waste my time either. You can go and die."
The little snake was stunned for a moment before he felt surges of powerful killing aura surrounding him.
'Damn it! What's going on?! What on earth is this guy thinking?
'What should I do? What should I do?'
Seeing Fang Xingjian's look of indifference made the little snake even more confounded over what Fang Xingjian was thinking. What was backing him up?
'No matter what, if I don't bring him there, I will end up in a very bad state.
'But if I were to bring him there and I got discovered, then wouldn't I be seen as a traitor to the Terrene Shrine?'
At that moment, the killing intent in Fang Xingjian's eyes grew increasingly stronger, "You're still hesitating? Do you really think that you still have a choice?"
"Haha, Fang Xingjian, you don't understand how terrifying the Terrene Shrine is. It's impossible for you to get any information out from me. You might as well kill me."
