Spirit Pagoda’s Internal Crisis
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
As she left, Mo Lan was filled with regret because she failed to achieve her goal. The truth was, she had suspected that she might fail before she came.
It was a blood feud that caused deep-seated loathing. No matter how generous Shrek and the Tang Sect were, they could not possibly give up on their hatred just like that. Had it not been for the stability of the continent, they would have launched their plan to get revenge earlier.
As the helmsman of Shrek and the Tang Sect, he could not possibly resolve this matter just because of his close relationship with Mo Lan. He was still waiting for the perfect opportunity. That opportunity would not come from the outside, but from them.
The greatest part of Shrek at this point was not its capabilities but its room for further growth in the future.
With the Divine Craftsman Tang Wulin’s presence, the Shrek Seven Monsters and the other powerhouses would be perfectly equipped.
Even the Spirit Pagoda could not possibly fathom how naturally skilled he was in Heavenly Refinement nor how fast he could produce divine-ranked metals.
Other than Shrek and Tang Wulin’s true core members, no one had any idea how quickly Tang Wulin could make battle armor. Even if the other soul masters believed that he was a Divine Craftsman capable of Heavenly Refinement, they could only estimate his speed based on the Divine Craftsman Zhen Hua’s performance in the past.
As it was, Tang Wulin’s forging speed was many times quicker than Zhen Hua.
He was waiting for all his companions to become Title Douluos before they could be clad in complete sets of four-word battle armor. By then, it would be the time to seek revenge.
A gentleman should bide his time and wait for the right moment for vengeance. Though they might not be able to locate the Holy Spirit Cult, the Spirit Pagoda had nowhere to run.
Shrek could not afford to suffer losses the next time. As a result, Tang Wulin would never act recklessly. He would first have to have complete confidence in his own success.
Hence, he had only told Mo Lan that Shrek would not be taking any further steps in the next six months before she left. He wanted to give the continent a chance to rest and recover. He could not guarantee what would happen afterward.
Tang Wulin had yet to complete his four-word battle armor. This was because making true divine-ranked metals took a lot of his energy and left him physically fatigued. He could only completely recover after a week. During this period of time, he would help the rest of his allies to forge the metals needed for their four-word battle armor.
Meanwhile, Tang Wulin’s understanding of Heavenly Refinement had reached a new level after entering that particular realm. He could perform Heavenly Refinement as easily as his hand could move its fingers. His speed had not increased, but the quality of his finished results was obviously improved. He had even taken back the four-word battle armor made for his companions earlier for further processing in order to enhance their strength.
In the Spirit Pagoda, Qiangu Dongfeng sat on the central main seat with a solemn expression. The Heavenly Phoenix Douluo Leng Yaozhu sat on the main seat on the lower left side of Qiangu Dongfeng while the Silver Dragon Douluo Gu Yuena sat on the lower right main seat.
Yes, Gu Yuena’s status in Spirit Pagoda had reached new heights. She was already at the same level as the Heavenly Phoenix Douluo Leng Yaozhu.
Ever since Qiangu Dongfeng thought that she and his grandson had already consummated their relationship, his final ounce of vigilance had vanished. Despite the wishes of the majority, he held onto his views and promoted her to her current position. For her part, Gu Yuena had relied on her incredible capabilities and intelligence to manage the Ten Thousand Beast Platform when it was in full swing.
It could be said that the only thing that could please Qiangu Dongfeng during this period was the huge profit coming from the Ten Thousand Beast Platform.
Whatever the case, the Spirit Pagoda’s Pagoda Master remained in a bad mood.
Other than Leng Yaozhu and Gu Yuena, the people with him were all at Hyper Douluo-rank and above. They were the real high-ranking members, the dynasties of the Spirit Pagoda.
Qiangu Dongfeng sat there for a few minutes in silence, without speaking at all.
Even though the attendees had no idea what this day’s meeting pertained to, they figured it was somehow related to Shrek Academy.
The incident where the Tang Sect’s two great Limit Douluos brought the Eternal Heaven to terrorize the Spirit Pagoda’s headquarters was not a secret among the high-ranking personnel. It was a burning shame for the Spirit Pagoda.
Qiangu Dieting was furious after coming back from the War God Hall and punished quite a large number of people in the headquarters. In any case, there was nothing he could change even after doing that. Most importantly, the Eternal Heaven had fallen into the Tang Sect’s hands. It was like having a sharp sword hanging over the top of the Spirit Pagoda ready to fall on them at any time. The power of the Eternal Heaven was more terrifying than the two Godkiller-ranked fixed soul ammunitions combined!
It would reduce the location it was dropped to ruins.
Over the last month, Qiangu Dongfeng had received twenty application letters for transfers from his high-ranking personnel. More than one-third of the people at this meeting had submitted their application letters.
There was a saying that the law cannot be enforced when everyone is an offender. No matter how dominant he was, he could not possibly order all the high-ranking personnel in the Spirit Pagoda. It would result in internal turmoil. The Qiangu clan may have had a very high status in Spirit Pagoda, but it was not omnipotent.
As a result, Qiangu Dongfeng had to call this meeting. The Spirit Pagoda would be in deep trouble if its members were no longer united.
It was certainly not his fault that the Eternal Heaven was acquired by the Tang Sect, but the Spirit Pagoda’s internal committee did not agree. There were many inharmonious voices that had let their opinions be known.
The main mastermind behind the attack on Shrek City was the Qiangu Clan. Had it not been for the fear they had for the two great Limit Douluos, Qiangu Dieting and Qiangu Dongfeng, perhaps the dissenters would have taken stronger measures already.
“Pagoda Master, why have you called for this meeting?” Leng Yaozhu could not bear it anymore. Even though she knew the situation fairly well, she chose to take the initiative to voice out.
Qiangu Dongfeng took a glance at her and spoke coldly, “There have been many rumors circulating around recently. I know about them all. I know what everyone’s concerns are too. In reality, I share the same concerns. All of you are thinking about when Shrek Academy and the Tang Sect are going to take revenge on us officially.”
As soon as those words were spoken, the entire meeting room was deathly silent. Everyone shifted their eyes to the Spirit Pagoda’s Pagoda Master.
No one had expected that Qiangu Dongfeng would speak about this matter so frankly.
Qiangu Dongfeng was silent for a moment before he spoke, “That’s right. Our conflict with Shrek and the Tang Sect can’t be resolved anymore. This is going to happen sooner or later, but it won’t benefit us if it happens later. You must agree with me on this, right?”
Leng Yaozhu frowned. “Pagoda Master, are you condemning everyone?” The resentment she had for Qiangu Dongfeng in her heart was close to the point of an explosion. It had been like this since Shrek City was attacked.
Qiangu Dongfeng took a cold glance at her. “Ever since the development of soul devices on our Douluo Continent, we have no need to consider soul beasts as our opponents anymore. As a result, mankind can only fight against one another. On the other hand, the development of soul devices has also resulted in the soul master’s own power not being the only decisive factor in a battle anymore. Otherwise, the Atlas Douluo would not have died in the explosion back then.”
When she heard him, Leng Yaozhe’s expression darkened as she clenched her fists tightly under the table. Cold radiance flickered in her eyes. Even though she knew that this was Qiangu Dongfeng’s effort to hurt her even more, she could not help being infuriated by his words.
Qiangu Dongfeng ignored her and continued to speak, “Thus, an individual’s power is no longer absolute in this world, but the greatest strength is the power of a collective team, the power of technology and even the power of money. Our Spirit Pagoda is the number one organization on the entire continent because we have inherited our greatness, our inner secrets and money that amounts to astronomical figures. Nana, please report the data.”
