Chapter 1446: Cruel
When the invisible ent.i.ties said that they wanted to capture Reneedol, the conflict had become unavoidable.
Shroud tried to move but wasn’t able to muster the strength to sit up.
Atley, Epta, and Scarlet were all anxious.
Reneedol was glowing like a sun on earth.
She chanted before anyone else could speak: “Law Behemoths who serve the Overlord of Radiance, please come to my aid!”
The immense glow rose all the way to the edge of the sky.
—–but not a single Law Behemoth appeared.
Reneedol’s expression changed and asked: “Shroud, what’s going on?”
Shroud was also startled: “I’m not sure either”
The radiant glow around Reneedol’s body was visibly turning dimmer, slowly fading away.
Everyone appeared perplexed.
“The power of the Overlord of Radiance… is weakening” Shroud muttered.
Gu Qing Shan felt his heart becoming heavy.
He tried to call upon the Overlord of Death.
Instantly, a cl.u.s.ter of black flames manifested behind him.
—–fortunately, the Overlord of Death remained as powerful as before!
Right at this moment, a grey net appeared out of nowhere, catching Atley, Epta, and Scarlet.
The three of them were shocked and tried to struggle, but the net only tightened itself.
Loud laughter sounded from the void of s.p.a.ce:
“Kill the boys, leave the girls, the most beautiful will be left for boss Knight!”
Another net was then cast towards Reneedol, Gu Qing Shan, and Shroud.
Gu Qing Shan raised his hand—-
Two bursts of black flames manifested directly on top of the two nets.
Atley’s group was freed.
“There’s been a change in plans” Gu Qing Shan shouted.
Atley stood next to him, while Epta and Scarlet hid behind them.
Scarlet lowered her head and began to chant an incantation.
Gu Qing Shan instantly felt strength surging in his body.
The current situation was a complete mystery, the Law Behemoths suddenly stopped responding to the Overlord of Radiance’s power.
The strongest among them had suddenly turned from Reneedol to Rhode.
From the air, dozens of frigid spinning ice blades were shot towards their group.
Knowing that the situation was completely irreconcilable, Gu Qing Shan shouted: “I’ll cover your backs, everyone start breaking the encirclement towards the South!”
Black flames instantly engulfed Gu Qing Shan.
His body swiftly moved towards the spinning ice blades without hesitation.
Seeing that, Reneedol carried Shroud in her arms and hurriedly called out:
“Everyone, follow me!”
Knowing that there was no time left to hesitate, the rest of the group swiftly followed her.
Scarlet suddenly turned around, stared closely at Gu Qing Shan, then shouted: “Rhode, don’t die!”
Gu Qing Shan roared in response, then landed on the ground while still completely engulfed in flames several hundred meters away, which caused a resounding explosion.
The black flames left a long trail behind him, reducing everything in his path to ashes.
Gu Qing Shan reached into the empty s.p.a.ce and caught a half-burnt arm.
Gu Qing Shan muttered to himself, then looked around his surroundings.
These people must be relying on some sort of concealment spell in order to remain invisible.
Gu Qing Shan crouched down and pressed one hand onto the ground, then quickly chanted an incantation from the Covenant of Death:
“Death is like a constantly accompanying shadow, and an appropriate price must be paid for offending it”
“Time to embrace Death”
Black flames began to rapidly spread from the palm of his hand, enveloping the entire surroundings.
Desperate screams could be heard from every direction.
Corpses began to appear in Gu Qing Shan’s vision.
All of them were equipped with a complete set of chainmail armor, s.h.i.+eld, and blade.
As Gu Qing Shan was feeling surprised, a layer of ice abruptly manifested to stop the flames of death.
All the flames faded away.
The ice melted into white frost.
The ice and flames were evenly matched!
Gu Qing Shan narrowed his eyes, only to see a cavalry knight in heavy armor with a sword in his hand, he was also evaluating Gu Qing Shan from atop his horse.
Behind the knight, countless soldiers occupied the entire wilderness.
“Brat, you’ve killed quite a few of us”
A chilling voice filled with killing intent sounded from behind the knight’s visor.
Gu Qing Shan replied: “That’s because you wanted to hurt our people”
The knight laughed: “Hurt your people? Your World Valley has already been destroyed, of course, everyone else cannot be allowed to survive as well”
“Whose decision was that?” Gu Qing Shan asked.
“Every powerful domain” the knight urged his horse forward, gradually gaining speed.
Gu Qing Shan lowered his head and opened his palm.
A cl.u.s.ter of black flames was lightly beating within it.
“It seems you’ve all suffered quite a bit mentally from being oppressed by the World Valley for so many years” he probed.
The knight didn’t answer him and simply shouted: “You’re going to die right here and now!”
A layer of frost manifested on top of his sword.
Behind him, a sea of vast frost and ice manifested.
——-the Law Behemoth of Ice!
Gu Qing Shan’s pupils dilated.
Only those from the World Valley know how to form a covenant with the Law Behemoths, creatures from other domains could only use the power of the Laws to reinforce themselves, not directly summon a Law Behemoth like this!
What exactly happened?
During the short time when Gu Qing Shan was thinking, the knight had already approached him.
The knight uttered a cry.
Gu Qing Shan pointed one finger towards him.
The burst of flame shot out, carrying with it a bolt of blue lightning as it struck the knight’s body.
Gu Qing Shan had combined his Thaumaturgy with the power of Death.
The knight was instantly incapacitated and fell to the ground, his horse neighed in panic and fled.
The vast ocean of ice uttered a curt scoff, then vanished.
Gu Qing Shan stepped forward and caught the knight by his neck, lifting him into the air.

“Speak, how did you summon a Law Behemoth?” Gu Qing Shan asked.
Soldiers were approaching him in waves.
The boundless power of the Laws was emanating from their bodies.
What exactly are the other Law Behemoths planning?
Why are they trying to compete for living beings?
Could they be trying to use mortal warfare to decide victory and defeat?
The truth must be significantly more terrible than that.
Gu Qing Shan couldn’t help but sigh, then asked: “Why did you not absorb my soul and life?”
More burning text quickly appeared:
[Even when the Lord of Radiance was snuffed out, he still upheld his own persistence, otherwise, he would not be considered Radiance; as the Lord of Death, I shall too silently uphold the n.o.bility of Death]
[Human Rhode, do not waste any more time, if you do not escape from the encirclement, you will die here!]
Gu Qing Shan’s eyes flickered.
—–innumerable soldiers had surrounded the forest, all of which were charging towards Gu Qing Shan.
“I WILL TAKE HIS HEAD!”
They all viciously roared.
Gu Qing Shan shook his head and muttered: “I have a certain technique that I usually do not abuse because of how cruel it is”
A ma.s.s of black fog began to appear from his body.
“But when a group of Overlords want to gang up on and bully a mere mortal like I myself, then I have no other choice”
The black fog spread in every direction, weaving through the layers of soldiers and continued to spread increasingly further.
All the soldiers collapsed.
A sense of bone-breaking pain, an unbearable suffering that ate into one’s soul had afflicted all of them.
This torment was beyond what humans could endure.
“What’s happening to my head!? What’s happening to my head!?”
The bodies of these soldiers were beginning to morph.
They were evolving into a certain unique species, the suffering caused by this process had directly knocked most of them unconscious, while the rest were unable to do anything except scream and cry while wis.h.i.+ng for death.
——–Demon Dragon Bloodkin.
The most terrifying power of the ancient war Soul Artifact created by the Bygone Era humans had been unleashed.
Observing these people, Gu Qing Shan fell into thought.
If I wait for a bit longer, these people would complete their conversation into Dragon Bloodkins.
Their strength would then grow at an exponential pace.
——but there was no ‘ifs’ in this world.
Gu Qing Shan crouched down and pressed his hand against the ground, chanting: “Your lives shall belong to the Overlord of Death”
“Your powers will not be taken away by the other Overlords, as the entire existence of a Bloodkin shall return to me”
He paused slightly, then whispered:
“Embrace your deaths”
Boundless black flames spread from his hand and engulfed this entire region.
