Now it seemed that although the Ninth Princess was unruly and playful, she was still a member of the royal family. At the very least, she knew the difference between public and private.
This caused Xiang Nan's mind to fall to the ground. He weighed the clearance token of the Haoran Fire Lake and thought to himself that he shouldn't be fired. Now that he went to the Haoran Fire Lake to refine his body, his mind was much more stable.
After Mr. Wu Chen arrived today, Xiang Nan put forward his own ideas.
Without hesitation, Mr. Wu Chen immediately brought Xiang Nan to the Hao Ran Fire Lake.
The Hao Ran Fire Lake was located at the Royal College , and the Royal College was truly the "number one sect" on the Blue Tide Continent.
Because the officials were unwilling to allow all the martial artists' resources of the The Haotian Empire to be controlled by the Haoran Sect, the Royal College was born at the historic moment.
However, the Royal College did not recruit disciples from the outside world. It specifically targeted the Haotian Imperial Clan, as well as the officials and generals of Haojing.
The reason why the Royal College was stronger than the Haoran Sect was because its backer was the Imperial Army.
After Xiang Nan followed Mr. Wu Chen into the Royal College , he immediately saw a completely different kind of martial arts atmosphere from the Haoran Sect.
Logically speaking, the disciples recruited by the Royal College were all from the second generation of officials and the second generation of rich people. The academy should be filled with a luxurious and loose atmosphere, but the situation was exactly the opposite.
Every student Xiang Nan saw was in groups of three or two, sitting around and discussing the martial skills he had just mastered.
While leading Xiang Nan forward, Mr. Wu Chen explained the reason for this situation to him.
He said, "Everyone who goes out here will shoulder the heavy responsibility of the country. If they are lagging behind in strength, they will be humiliated by their clan and will not be entrusted with the heavy responsibility by the empire."
"Young Master Xiang, please take a look. These disciples do not cultivate separately. What do you think of this?"
Xiang Nan smiled and said, "The biggest difference between the sect and the military academy is that the Martial Arts Sect pays more attention to individual combat strength, while the military academy pays more attention to group combat strength."
"In terms of individual battles, the academy's disciples are no match for the Haoran Sect's disciples. However, if it was a group battle, the Royal College would be one head higher than the Haoran Sect."
Mr. Wu Chen nodded and smiled, "Young Master Xiang is very young. He can clearly see the difference between them."
"Mr. Wu Chen, you're here." Three female disciples walked towards him. All three bowed respectfully to Mr. Wu Chen.
Wherever the two of them passed, this situation was constantly happening. Almost all of the disciples respected and admired Mr. Wu Chen greatly.
Xiang Nan secretly guessed in his heart what kind of person this Mr. Wu Chen was, but from the attitude of outsiders towards him, it was impossible to tell who he was.
Of course, Xiang Nan did not ask, nor did he want to probe.
Xiang Nan knew that the less he knew about the official situation, the better.
Mr. Wu Chen said, "The Hao Ran Fire Lake was jointly created by the Great Emperor and Senior Heavenly Dao back then. The Fire Lake introduced the essence of the dragon vein of the country and absorbed the mighty energy of heaven and earth."
"Ordinary people say that the Dragon Vein determines the prosperity of a country, but in reality, the Dragon Vein determines the density of a country's spiritual energy."
"If it is said that this dragon vein is related to the destiny of the country, it is not false."
"Yes." Xiang Nan nodded, "Whether a country's spiritual energy is rich or not will largely affect the number of martial artists produced by this empire."
Mr. Wu Chen said, "So you should know how precious this Nature Fire Lake is. The Dragon Vein Qi is very precious. It takes several to several decades for the Dragon Vein to recover after absorbing some of it."
"Therefore, the royal family has a strict screening system for the users of the Haoran Fire Lake."
Xiang Nan cupped his fists and said, "Thank you very much for the Emperor's kindness in nurturing me."
Mr. Wu Chen smiled and said meaningfully, "Young Master Xiang obtained all of this in exchange for merits."
The implication behind that was that there must be a reward for merit, so if there was a mistake, he would also be punished.
Xiang Nan did not comment.
The Hao Ran Fire Pool was located at the back of the Royal College . This was also an artificial mountain built in the city.
As for which building was the most solid in the entire The Haotian Empire , the first was the Imperial Palace, and the second was definitely the Imperial Academy.
Every upper-middle-ranking official of the military was a temporary teacher at the Royal College . In fact, the Dean of the Royal College was Emperor Haotian himself. Interestingly, the Vice Dean was actually the head of the Haoran Sect, Zhang Haoran.
What Xiang Nan hadn't expected was that he had actually discovered some people from other countries in the Royal College . Some of them didn't even look like they belonged to the Blue Tide Continent.
Mr. Wu Chen explained. Young disciples from various empires from other continents had also come to the Royal College to study. They were here to learn powerful knowledge of war and the skills of military officers.
When these people returned to their own countries, they would feel a kind of friendship towards the Royal College . This kind of friendship would bring great benefits to the The Haotian Empire when cooperating with those countries.
"In front of us is the Hao Ran Fire Lake." Mr. Wu Chen pointed at the artificial mountain.
There were a total of nine mountains, arranged in a circular pattern. In the middle of the mountains, there was a giant tower that reached into the sky.
This tower was called the Haotian Tower, and it was the only divine weapon in the entire Blue Tide Continent. It was an elementary divine item.
The purpose of this pagoda was to guard Haojing. It could resist invasion and expel evil spirits. It was the national treasure of the entire The Haotian Empire .
The Nature Fire Pool was located in the tower.
To Xiang Nan's surprise, this treasure didn't have a single soldier on hand.
Mr. Wu Chen seemed to see through Xiang Nan's doubts and smiled, "How many soldiers are there? They are not as powerful as the tower itself."
"If you don't get a pass token, you won't be able to enter the tower."
"Young Master Xiang, the Haoran Fire Lake is located on the negative floor of the Haotian Tower. You must not go to the wrong place to avoid causing unnecessary trouble."
"I understand." Xiang Nan nodded and walked into the tower with the customs clearance token.
The Haotian Tower was extremely dignified, giving off an extremely strange illusion. It was as if the heavens and the earth had just opened, and it had always stood here when the chaos was civilized.
It was as if the heavens and earth had caved in, and when the void shattered, it would also stand there.
"As expected of a divine-grade weapon, it's truly amazing." Xiang Nan sighed as he walked into the pagoda. When he stepped inside, the Haotian Pagoda suddenly emitted a faint light.
When this faint light appeared, the token in Xiang Nan's hand also flashed, allowing Xiang Nan to successfully enter.
After Xiang Nan entered, he discovered that the tower was indeed divided into a positive floor and a negative floor. The two stairs led to the upper floor and the lower floor respectively.
Standing here, Xiang Nan could already feel a faint heat coming from the ground.
"I've finally come in." Xiang Nan touched his storage ring. Inside, there was his most precious lightning talisman.
