80 Years Of Signing-In At The Cold Palace, I Am Unrivalled - Chapter 18

Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
The matter regarding the removal of the vassal lords had become widely known.
Aside from the people of the Yuhua God Dynasty, the major forces throughout the world were watching too.
Who would win the battle between the nine vassal lords and Emperor Yuan?
The nine vassal lords had clearly expressed their refusal to go to the imperial capital to celebrate Empress Dowager’s birthday.
What would Emperor Yuan do next?
These things were pulling on the nerves of everyone in the world.
Many people were nervous, afraid that the outbreak of war would affect them.
But Lin Jiufeng in the Cold Palace wasn’t affected at all.
[Do you want to Sign-In before the Chasing Corpse Sect’s ruins?]
On this day, Lin Jiufeng came to the depths of the Cold Palace. It was an ancestral hall that had been abandoned for a long time. This was once the ruins of the Chasing Corpse Sect.
“Sign in!” Lin Jiufeng said.
[Sign-In successful. Received a set of Death Bone Sword Technique!]
Lin Jiufeng was delighted.
It was unexpected that he would receive an entire set of items after today’s sign-in session.
It used to be just a single item or a single technique.
There had never been a set before, this was the first time. It might be a precedent.
Lin Jiufeng returned to his courtyard from the ruins of the Chasing Corpse Sect.
He saw the bone swords inserted all over the ground in the yard. They exuded a cold aura that felt slightly sinister.
These were long swords made of bones and they looked incredibly terrifying.
Counting carefully, Lin Jiufeng counted 365 bone swords.
Lin Jiufeng pulled out one of them. He was instantly inundated by a wave of cold energy. However, he wasn’t harmed by the cold energy. Instead, a cooling sensation swept through his body, causing his head to tremble as his spirit was immediately revitalized a hundredfold.
“These bone swords are in a set, and they seem to have a connection to me.”
Lin Jiufeng looked at the secret manual placed on the table.
Death Bone Sword Technique!
Putting down the bone sword, he walked over to look at the secret manual.
The texts and the sword strokes depicted inside seemed to have come alive as they rushed into Lin Jiufeng’s eyes.
In Lin Jiufeng’s spiritual consciousness, the complete Death Bone Sword Technique was instantly comprehended by him.
He stretched his arm out and raised his hand. Sonorous sounds appeared one after another.
In an instant, the 365 bone swords flew up and circled around Lin Jiufeng, making him look like an invincible king of the world.
“The Death Bone Sword Technique is very powerful. With my Martial Will and with the help of my manipulation of the world’s energies, any enemy that stands in front of me are all illusions that can be broken with a flick of my finger.”
Lin Jiufeng looked at the bone swords surrounding him.
His confidence was instantly boosted.
At this moment, he had lofty sentiments in his heart.
Lin Jiufeng then dissipated his own energy as the bone swords fell one after another, inserting themselves into the ground.
“Unfortunately, the Death Bone Sword Technique isn’t useful in increasing my cultivation base,” Lin Jiufeng said in regret.
This set of swords and technique caused his combat power to skyrocket, but his cultivation realm remained unaffected.
After Lin Jiufeng was excited for a short period of time, but after the initial shock, he returned to being calm.
He looked upwards.
The sky in the imperial capital has been both cloudy and sunny recently.
One moment, the sky was cloudless.
But in the very next moment, torrential rain was about to come crashing down.
It was just like a woman’s attitude, whimsical and changing at will.
“There have been dark clouds over the Forbidden City lately, it seems that something big is about to happen.” Lin Jiufeng muttered, looking at the sky above the Forbidden City again.
Emperor Yuan was rooted in trouble now.
He wanted to remove the vassal lords, but the resistance was too great.
He was also too anxious to make changes. As a result, the current situation was too unstable.
Lin Jiufeng just sighed about this, there wasn’t much that he could do about it.
He was just a dethroned prince, all he could do was to sign in peacefully in the Cold Palace.
Emperor Yuan hadn’t failed yet.
So, why should he be in a hurry to make a move?
Late at night!
Forbidden City, Central Hall.
Emperor Yuan was reviewing the memorials as always.
The Forbidden City had witnessed many emperors in countless springs and autumns, but this was the only emperor who was this hardworking.
As always, Lin Tianyuan was impressed by his father’s diligence.
But at the same time, he was heartbroken.
A deeply-ill Yuhua God Dynasty managed to produce an emperor who wanted to change everything for the better. Lin Tianyuan didn’t know whether this was the Yuhua God Dynasty’s luck, or whether it was Emperor Yuan’s misfortune.
“It’s already late at night, you can go back and cultivate.”
Seeing that there was still a large stack of memorials to go through, Emperor Yuan looked at Lin Tianyuan, who was guarding him day and night.
Emperor Yuan’s heart felt warm.
There were many princes, but none of them could make him feel a sense of ease like Lin Tianyuan.
“Your Majesty, I’m not tired.” Lin Tianyuan shook his head and said firmly.
He would keep standing guard for Emperor Yuan.
He hadn’t enjoyed his father’s care for so many years, but as long as he was with his father now, Lin Tianyuan felt very happy.
“Okay.” Emperor Yuan revealed an exhausted smile.
He continued to revise the memorials, but his heart felt warm inside.
“Revising the memorials in the middle of the night, how hardworking…”
“Are you revising those memorials to find a way to remove the vassal lords?” Suddenly, a cold snort sounded. A figure appeared outside the Central Hall.
The moonlight shone on his body, and a huge shadow was projected into the hall.
A meat mountain.
“Who is it?”
Lin Tianyuan shouted sharply and quickly stood in front of Emperor Yuan, ready for combat.
“Kou Tiande, it’s the name that I am given and will never change or hide!” said the meat mountain-like man.
“Kou Tiande!” Emperor Yuan raised his head in surprise.
He immediately held Lin Tianyuan back, and whispered, “Don’t get involved, this is an order!”
Lin Tianyuan was pulled aside by Emperor Yuan. He didn’t want him to get involved.
“Among the people who followed the founding emperor in building the nation, there was one named Kou Tiande. What’s his connection to you?” Emperor Yuan stood up.
He walked calmly to the center of the hall and asked.
“I am that person who fought for the building of your Lin Family’s empire. And now, you actually want to take back the territory that the founding emperor gave to us? Do you think that I don’t exist anymore?” Kou Tiande sneered and said.
He was one of the nine vassal lords, and he hurried over here because of the bet.
He was the first to rush here to kill Emperor Yuan.
“Every land in the empire belongs to the emperor, every person in the empire are subjects of the emperor.”
“The territory given to all of you back then was because of your hard work! It was to reward you all, in hopes that you all will manage it well.”
“But to this day, you guys oppress and exploit the people, disobey the laws, groom private soldiers, and even intend to start wars. You guys are a bunch of rogues!”
“It is imperative to remove the vassal lords!”
Emperor Yuan didn’t have a huge body and an oppressive aura like Kou Tiande, but his words were firm and loud, his words were the words of a true Emperor.
“You dare to brag so boldly in front of me? In front of someone stronger than you? I shall twist your head off your shoulders today. I’ll let you go and see the founding emperor of the Yuhua God Dynasty so that you can kneel in front of him in regret of what you have done.”
Kou Tiande was furious.
Enraged by Emperor Yuan’s behavior, he grabbed Emperor Yuan, planning to twist his head off.
But in the next second, Nameless rushed out of the dark.
With rapid speed, he struck Kou Tiande’s palm with a punch.
The sound wave and the energies generated in the collision exploded, directly destroying more than half of the Central Hall and alarming the guards of the Forbidden City.
“Is this the reason why you’ve become so bold? Because there’s a Martial Sage hiding in the Forbidden City?” Kou Tiande laughed. Although Nameless successfully stopped him from twisting Emperor Yuan’s head off his shoulders, he remained unscathed.
His meat mountain-like body could still move as perfectly as before.
“I shall beat up this Martial Sage to bits first and then kill you.”
Kou Tiande roared and became entangled with Nameless.
A fight between two Martial Sages was a battle of massive proportions, it was very terrifying.
Emperor Yuan coldly looked at Kou Tiande. He didn’t notice that behind him, a figure had appeared from the shadows. It was holding a dagger.
A Shadow Assassin!
What’s more, this was a Shadow Assassin of the Martial Sage Realm that had come to assassinate the Emperor.
“Insolent! Is the emperor of the Yuhua God Dynasty someone that can be assassinated by a clown like you, who hides in the shadows all day long?”
The imperial family’s own Martial Sage, the emperor two generations ago, Emperor Yuan’s grandfather appeared in the midst.
Under his rage, he attacked furiously as he intercepted the Shadow Assassin in a flash.
They became entangled with each other.
Emperor Yuan frowned, he didn’t expect that the nine vassal lords would actually send two Martial Sages to assassinate him.
He thought it was safe now.
But in the very next moment, an extremely terrifying javelin shot from a distance.
Its target was Emperor Yuan.
“Die! I’m the one who shall win this bet!”
The middle-aged man who shot the javelin curled his mouth, feeling very proud of himself.
An attack from a Martial Sage like him would easily kill Emperor Yuan who was only in the Grandmaster Realm, wouldn’t it?Read latest Chapters at wuxiamobile.com Only
But the situation suddenly changed, the javelin that he hurled was directly split into half by someone.
A shock wave from the point of contact burst out.
The man who threw the javelin had his eyes widened in shock. “How is this possible?”
