Report Chapter

Chasing Demon spoke, leaving everyone around him too amazed to answer.

Noah wasn't an exception, he replayed the patriarch's words in his mind, trying to give them some sense.

'A piece of the Immortal Lands has fallen? That thing is almost as big as our continent, this is a d.a.m.ned world-level threat!'

Noah had never cared that much about the geography of the world but he had inevitably learnt a few things as he lived there.

The continent where the three big nations ruled was the largest landma.s.s of the planet, some groups of islands and smaller lands were spa.r.s.ely situated on the surface of the sea which covered most of the planet.

All in all, Noah knew that this planet was bigger than his previous one but there wasn't the same variety of places where to live, the biggest share of the human population lived in one of the areas of influence of the forces of continent.

Also, since it had never been conquered in its entirety by a single force, the continent remained nameless, no organization could ever claim the right to name it.

The continent, the other smaller, the islands, and the sea were labeled as Mortal Lands.

They were "mortal" due to the beings that inhabited them and to the "Breath" found there, it wasn't an environment fit for deities.

As for the Immortal Lands, Noah only knew that they were somewhere above the sky but the information about them was restricted to peak heroic cultivator who had started researching about their ascension, he simply didn't have the power needed to gain access to that intelligence.

"Patriarch, how can parts of the Immortal Lands fall?"

One of the elders around Chasing Demon asked, interrupting Noah's thoughts and raising the interest of the cultivators in the air.

Their curiosity was understandable, the new continent had once been part of the Immortal Lands, a place that only deities could reach!

That was supposedly the final destination of the cultivation journey, it was normal for those heroic cultivators to want to learn more about it.

Of course, the only ent.i.ty of the Hive who could know something about it was Chasing Demon.

A pensive expression appeared on Chasing Demon's sharp face, he turned his gaze back on the azure landma.s.s placed over the stratum of ice and sorted his thoughts before explaining what he knew.

"I remember something that my master, Divine Demon, said about the Immortal Lands."

A moment of silence followed those words, Chasing Demon's expression seemed to soften when he mentioned his master.

"The lands above the sky are richer of "Breath", capable of sustaining the cultivation process of many divine lifeforms. Yet, they aren't eternal, even the dense "Breath" contained in those places will eventually be depleted if too many deities affect it."

Noah and the elders next to him listened to his words with utmost attention, that was probably the first real information about the Immortal Lands after all!

"When an area in the Immortal Lands loses too much "Breath", it will separate and fall into the Mortal Lands since it can't meet the required standards of that higher plane. This is all I know and it's even a supposition, I can't be sure of the actual reason behind this event."

Noah thought as he fixed his eyes on the horizon, the new continent gave him a strange sensation, his beast's instincts told him that danger was hidden in that azure environment.

Yet, where there was danger, there were also potential gains!

"Patriarch, when you said next move, did you mean what I'm thinking?"

Another elder expressed his concerns but traces of greed could be seen in its eyes, its intentions could be clearly understood by the others.

A new land coming from a higher plane, an environment probably at the peak of the heroic ranks.

That meant the possibility of finding resources and lifeforms in the heroic ranks, secrets about the Immortal Lands, leftovers of the divine beings that had walked on that area, there could be literally anything there.

Most importantly, if the new continent was found to be more valuable than the old one, the areas of influence of the three big nations would just lose importance since a better goal would be placed in front of those three dominant forces.

The goal would be the colonization of that better land!

Chasing Demon nodded and revealed a smile as he turned toward that elder.

"Yes, we will leave the first exploration to the three big nations of the continent, they can face the dangers hidden there for us. Meanwhile, we will decide if it's better to join the colonization of the new land or if it's time to finally strike our continent."
