Supreme Emperor of Swords - Chapter 1122
Chapter 1122 Suppressing the River Palace
The River Palace was an ancient force that had existed for countless years. It stood firm in the Northern Region and had a profound foundation. Even the Holy Palace of Mysterious Frost, which was the dominator of the Northern Region, had always been tolerant of the River Palace. It could be said that it was the overlord of a region and dominated the life and death of countless lives.
The absolute power and influence made the River Palace extremely domineering. In this area, they had the final say and no one was allowed to make objections.
Moreover, in all the major events that had happened in the Northern Region over the years, the River Palace had been involved in many of them. Countless disciples of the River Palace claimed themselves to be persons in charge while walking around the Northern Region. They acted arrogantly, rejected others, and showed no respect for anyone. Countless sects and rogue cultivators were afraid of the power of the River Palace, so even though they were irritated, they dared not say anything.
Even the Blue Cloud Sect, known as the number one sect in the Northern Region, was not as arrogant and overbearing as the River Palace.
The eruption of purple Dragon Qi and the incredible appearance of the mysterious purple crystal mine on the Back Mountain of the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect had aroused the covetousness of the major forces in the Northern Region. Among them, the River Palace and Hidden Fragrance Peak were the ones who had made the most trouble. Although at that time, the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect began to rise, it had not been taken seriously by those two top forces.
Unexpectedly, in the end, the River Palace was in a mess. Not only did many of its disciples get killed, but it also lost dozens of River Warships. Their foundation was damaged, which made all the people from the River Palace very angry. They wanted to take revenge, but the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect had disappeared from the world as if it had really gone to the immortal land. When the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect came back, its force was strong enough to be comparable to the River Palace.
The River Palace was particularly troubled by the number of top masters in the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect.
This was the first time in history that they’d encountered such an embarrassing situation while they were provoking and bullying a new rising power.
Things worked up to a climax as the Saber and Sword Addict became the chief of the Northern Region Martial Alliance. It meant that the River Palace no longer had the strength and power to crush the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect head-on. Those masters and elders of the River Palace, who claimed to take revenge and wanted to teach the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect and Ding Hao a lesson, also felt scared.
Fortunately, not only the Northern Region but also the entire Land of Infinity was in chaos when the troubled times had come at this time.
But the troubled times were the best stage for a force like River Palace.
In the River Palace.
The singing and dancing were in full swing, and a lively banquet was going on.
“Hahaha, I used to be afraid of the power of the Holy Palace of Mysterious Frost, so I couldn’t exert my strength to fulfill my wish. Now it’s really a godsend opportunity. The Holy Palace of Mysterious Frost has retired, and the Blue Cloud Sect has chosen to hide after the battle with the Divine Grace forces. There is no longer any power to keep us in check in the world. When our plan is completed, even the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect will be trampled under our feet. Hahaha!”
A powerful master of the River Palace laughed unrestrainedly. He held a female martial artist with a forced smile in his arms and molested her.
An expert of the Demon Clan, who looked like a black bear, said with a laugh, “You’re right, Elder Chen.” He came from Bear Mountain and was a Semi God Realm master of the Demon Clan. He was laughing arrogantly, and he was surrounded by black demonic clouds and Demon Aura. Behind him stood four burly Bear Demon Saints. The Semi Demon God opened his mouth and sucked one of the six trembling humans who were tied to the big table. He swallowed the man as if he were eating carrots, and the blood in the corners of his mouth splashed out.
These trembling humans had obviously been offered as food for the Semi Demon God.
Blood sprayed, bones splashed, and the air was filled with the smell of blood.
This scene was extremely miserable and terrifying.
“It’s too early to talk about this now. The top priority is to find a way to get rid of Ding Hao,” a figure sitting in the corner of the shadow of the main hall said insidiously. He was like a shadow, hidden in the darkness. A cold, gloomy, and sharp aura was swirling around his body, like a poisonous dagger hidden in the darkness. It was frightening and no one dared to get too close to him.
This man was a Killing God from the Hidden Fragrance Peak.
“Yes, now we have to find a way to get rid of Ding Hao. This person is too horrible, and his growth is too fast. If we let him develop, I’m afraid it won’t be long before our three forces alliance loses to the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect,” a middle-aged man with long purple hair sitting in the main seat said loudly. He was the current master of the River Palace, a very terrifying being.
Although many of the older generation present were very unwilling, they had to admit that Ding Hao had become their nightmare now, and they could not easily deal with him.
This time, the River Palace, Hidden Fragrance Peak, and the Demon Clan had joined forces to accumulate their powers as soon as possible. They wanted to take over the territory within a radius of tens of millions of miles in the east of the Northern Region and establish a powerful interest group. In particular, after witnessing the military strength of Divine Grace’s forces, the major forces had begun to establish their own army and become feudal princes of a certain area.
Only in this way might they be able to fight against the Northern Region Martial Alliance, led by Ding Hao.
Of course, it would be best if they could assassinate Ding Hao and other high-level figures of the Northern Region Martial Alliance.
The banquet was held to discuss this matter, and it was urgent.
“Isn’t there an ancestor of the Hidden Fragrance Peak guarding the mountain?” The Bear Demon God laughed loudly and said, “Why don’t we invite him to come out and assassinate Ding Hao and the others? It shouldn’t be a problem, right?”
“Humph!” The Semi Killing God snorted. “The ancestor has a condition for taking action!”
“What is the condition?”
“He requires divine medicines or magical elixirs.”
“This…this is too much. You should know that no one will survive in a total disaster. If Ding Hao comes to attack, your ancestor will have to take action sooner or later…”
“That’s right. Killing Ding Hao should be the priority.”
Everyone in the hall discussed.
Right at this moment-
A violent shock suddenly came from a distance, as if an earthquake had occurred. The whole hall shook violently, and the gravel splashed. It was as if the place would collapse in the next moment, which made people’s faces change dramatically.
“What’s going on?” The crowd’s faces tightened.
The River Palace’s master pounded the table and stood up. He said angrily, “Someone is attacking the defensive tactical deployment. Damn it. Who has the nerve to make trouble in our River Palace? Let’s go out and have a look…”
Before he could finish speaking, a thunder-like voice came from the sky.
“Where are you, the master of the River Palace? Come out to see me.”
Every word was like divine thunder, and all the masters within a radius of hundreds of miles were pale. They felt dizzy as if thunder had exploded in their ears. They looked up at the sky in horror. They didn’t know who was so terrifying that he could almost break the defensive tactical deployment with just a few words.
“Who is it? You’re only here to die!”
The River Palace’s master and many experts rushed up to the sky with surging fierce flames to meet the one who had come.
In the blue sky, hundreds of people were standing in the air, led by a man with a jade-like face and a muscular figure. His black hair was flying in the strong wind, and every strand of hair was shining. His cyan shirt was whistling in the wind. From a distance, he looked like an immortal. He was peerless and unrestrained. When he opened and closed his eyes, there was an abnormal phenomenon of the sun and stars moving within. He stood with his hands clasped behind his back and was so majestic that he could not be straightly looked at.
“Ding Hao, it’s you!”
The face of the master of the River Palace darkened. He gritted his teeth and recognized who the person was at a glance.
Ding Hao, the Saber and Sword Addict, was the biggest threat to the River Palace.
The group of people had been still discussing how to deal with this person in the hall. They didn’t expect that the other party would actually come to them.
When Ding Hao’s eyes fell on this person, he recognized him almost in an instant. The Swordsmanship-seeking Sect and the River Palace were sworn enemies, so it was impossible for Ding Hao not to know what the master of the River Palace looked like. Although Ding Hao had never seen this person before, all kinds of information about the master of the River Palace was very detailed.
“Ding Hao, why did you invade the territory of the River Palace for no reason?” the master of the River Palace asked as he carefully looked around.
Now that Ding Hao was the chief of the Northern Region Martial Alliance, if he led the experts of the alliance here, the River Palace might really be in great trouble today. However, if it was just the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect that had come over, it was hard to say who would win.
How could Ding Hao not know what the River Palace’s master was thinking? He spoke directly, “You don’t need to look around. There’s no one else but us.”
“What can I do for you, Chief Ding?” The River Palace Master’s expression did not change, but he had begun to feel excited in his heart. He had searched high and low for Ding Hao, only to find him by sheer luck. He was thinking about how to kill Ding Hao under the protection of the masters of the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect, the Blue Cloud Sect, and the Northern Region Martial Alliance. He did not expect that Ding Hao would bring such a small group of people to the territory of the River Palace. “This is definitely a good opportunity given by the heavens.”
Ding Hao did not care what he was thinking.
He went straight to the point and said, “The River Palace colluded with the Demon Clan to cause chaos, bring misery to all living creatures, and set off wars everywhere. You have committed great sins. As the Palace Master, you can’t absolve yourself of the blame. I want you to destroy your own cultivation, disband the disciples in the palace, and seal the mountain for 500 years. Only after that will the River Palace be allowed to travel in the Northern Region!”
“Young man, who do you think you are?”
“Humph, you don’t know what’s good for you. Do you really think that you can command the world just because you’re some chief?”
The experts of the River Palace roared angrily. They were used to being arrogant and domineering. They had never been bullied like this before. When they heard Ding Hao’s words, they almost flew into a rage and cursed one by one.
“Chief Ding, you must be joking.” A trace of sarcasm appeared on the face of the River Palace Master.
“It seems that Ding Hao has really gone crazy with the power and prestige of the alliance chief. He is overestimating himself. Even the Holy Palace of Mysterious Frost would not dare to treat the River Palace like this. Ding Hao is just a shield that a small group of people promoted to the position of alliance chief temporarily. How dare he speak so arrogantly? He is simply courting death.”
On the other side.
Ding Hao seemed to have not heard the loud curses.
He looked calm and said slowly, “If it weren’t for the fact that the ancestors and martial artists of the River Palace had made contributions to the Holy War, this branch of the Human Clan would have been wiped out a long time ago. The terms I set are already a compromise. I’ll give you ten breaths of time. If you don’t agree to my condition within ten breaths, I’ll suppress the River Palace personally.”
