"Who is the Huangpu Sea King? Is he from the Huangpu Aristocrat Clan?" More people are asking questions.
People from pure martial arts clans had never heard of this name. Only those martial artists from commercial clans would have heard of the Huangpu Sea King.
When Xiang Nan heard the voice, he stood out from the crowd and said, "Senior, are you looking for me?"
"Nephew Xiang, please follow me. I have a few words to entrust to you," the Huangpu Sea King smiled faintly.
After saying that, the Huangpu Sea King threw out a rainbow light and swept Xiang Nan away.
When they reappeared, the two of them were already in a hundred-year-old restaurant in Star City.
Xiang Nan was stunned for a moment. He first observed his surroundings, then poured wine for the Sea King and said, "I wonder what Senior is waiting for me for."
The Whampoa Sea King carefully sized up Xiang Nan from top to bottom and nodded in satisfaction, "Good, good, good. Kid is righteous. I think he often helps others."
"You have a ruthlessness in your bones. You are very similar to Old Brother Wu Wang, but Martial King is not as calm as you. He is much sharper than you."
Xiang Nan hurriedly said, "Senior praises me absurdly."
The Sea King nodded, "Two things. The first is to advise you not to enter the Star Guild. You are Old Brother Wu's only surviving descendant and also the sole successor to the Nine Transformations of Thunder."
"Do you know that the things the Star Guild wants to do are extremely dangerous? You could lose your life at any time."
Xiang Nan said, "Since life and death have been put aside in the martial arts world, this junior is indeed afraid of death, but he is even more reluctant to live."
The Sea King let out a long sigh, "Your words are exactly the same as Old Brother Wu Wang's back then."
"Back then, a few of our old friends advised him not to cultivate the Nine Transformations of Thunder, but he persisted in saying that he would rather perish and die than settle for the status quo."
"What exactly is above the ninth level of the Heavenly Tribulation? Whether or not he can rise to another level? This belief is something that he has always been unable to untie."
"Since that's the case, let's talk about the second matter."
The Sea King took out a small square seal and handed it to Xiang Nan.
Xiang Nan held the square seal in his hand and looked around, only to see that there were patterns on all four sides of the square seal.
Moreover, these four patterns were all four legs and eight arms, each arm carrying a sword in the shape of a vicious ghost relief.
Moreover, this square seal contained the aura of an ancient desolate old man.
Xiang Nan was puzzled.
The Sea King said, "This is the Rakshasa Ghost King Seal. It was gifted to me by the Martial King in the past."
"He said that there is a strand of his Primordial Chaos Astral Qi sealed within this seal. If something unexpected happens, I can use this seal to ensure your safety."
"I haven't used it once in my life. I originally wanted to stay here as a memento, but now that I've met you, I'll give it to you."
"Primordial Astral Qi?" "Am I overthinking it? Is this Primordial Chaos Astral Qi related to Primordial Chaos Sect?" Xiang Nanqi asked.
The Sea King nodded, "Back then, Elder Brother Wu Wang had instructed quite a few martial artists. One of them was the descendant of the founder of the Primordial Chaos Sect in the Southern Domain."
"Ah, this is strange." Xiang Nan muttered, "I've dealt with people from the Primordial Chaos Sect, but I didn't find any similarities between their martial arts and Martial Kings."
The Sea King laughed, "The Nine Transformations of Thunder that you learned was created by a Martial King at the ninth level of the Heavenly Tribulation. Before this, his martial technique and world-destroying divine lightning had nothing to do with it."
Xiang Nan suddenly understood.
"Moreover." The Sea King said, "The founding ancestor of the Primordial Chaos Sect is not the successor of the Martial King. He has only received the Martial King's martial dao guidance."
Xiang Nan said, "Then many thanks for the kindness that Senior Sea King has bestowed upon you. However, this gift is after all a gift from the Martial King. I…"
The Sea King shook his head and said, "Take it if you want it. How can there be such a fool as you in this world? There's something good that you don't want?"
"Furthermore, I was unable to save the Martial King back then. I have always been concerned about it. Now that I have met the descendant of Elder Brother Martial King, I always want to do something to make up for it."
Xiang Nan sighed and said, "Then this junior will keep it."
"You'll have to rely on yourself from now on." "I am an elder of the Huangpu Clan, so I cannot interfere in the affairs of the Star Guild. If you encounter any dangers in the future, you can only think of a way to save yourself," said the Sea King.
"Also, this Star Guild is not simple. They are completely capable of fighting against the Heavenly Profound Sect, but they also know that if they really fight against the Heavenly Profound Sect, even if they really wipe out the Heavenly Profound Sect, the Star Guild itself will suffer great damage to its vitality and might even disintegrate."
"That's why we recruited all the geniuses in the world for use by the Guild. Can you understand that?"
"This junior knows." Xiang Nan said, "Originally, the Profound Sky Sect did not have such a powerful force, nor did they have the qualifications to fight against the Star Guild. It was only because the Profound Sky Sect had the help of martial artists from other worlds."
"Even if it's to prevent alien realm martial artists from entering our world, I still have to go all out."
The Sea King nodded in praise, "A martial artist is most afraid of not being able to recognize his own heart. It is not bad that you are so clear about your own direction."
"I'll give you an explanation. The Rakshasa Ghost King Seal can only be used once. Remember, remember."
After saying that, the Sea King drank the wine Xiang Nan poured for him and disappeared in a flash.
Xiang Nan thoughtfully played with the Rakshasa Ghost King Seal. This thing was not really a weapon, not even a grade.
The reason it was valuable was because it contained a strand of Heavenly Thunder Martial King's Astral Qi. After using it once, that strand of Astral Qi disappeared.
From what the Sea King said, it seemed that this strand of Dipper Qi was specifically used for defense and could not be used to attack.
"Sigh, we have to hurry up and leave. Otherwise, we won't be able to register in time." Xiang Nan slapped his forehead and left the restaurant.
This place was already inside Heavenly Star City.
Heavenly Star City was enormous, and its entire shape was circular. From a high place, it looked like a giant Yin Yang Fish. Half of it was the location of the Star Guild, and the other half was the headquarters of the Huangpu Aristocrat Clan.
Normally, people would not be able to enter the half of the Huangpu Aristocrat Clan. Because the Huangpu Aristocrat Clan belonged to a neutral force, the half of the city belonged to a forbidden area.
As for the other half, it was equivalent to the Starry Guild's sect area. There were also many shops and entertainment venues, but none of these facilities were under the control of outsiders.
The Star Guild had a long history. Many martial artists who had retired from the Guild were unwilling to leave. They opened restaurants, gambling houses, inns, etc. nearby to guard the Star Guild for the rest of their lives. There were still quite a few people like this.
All in all, this place is not simple.
When they were on the flying ship, Xiang Nan and the others received a brief introduction book about the Star Guild.
The Star Guild was divided into two parts, the inner sect and the outer sect. Although it was no longer a sect in the traditional sense, many places still used the same name as the previous sect.
In the entire Central Continent, there was a branch of the Star Guild in each of the main cities. These branches were collectively referred to as the Outer Sect.
The headquarters of the Star Guild in Heavenly Star City was the inner sect.
The Star Guild had two Guild Leaders, one of whom was known as Empyrean Galaxy and the other as Empyrean Firmament. Both of them were supreme experts.
