A month later, when Xiang Nan finally arrived at the Blue Tide Continent, he was once again shocked by the scene in front of him.
The last time he came back, the Haotian Empire was already incomparably prosperous, and now, it had reached an unimaginable level.
Too many people had entered the Haotian Empire. These people all needed shelter, needed their own homes, and needed to continue to run their own businesses here.
As a result, the human settlements in the entire Blue Tide Continent had been expanded infinitely. Even now, there was no such thing as a wilderness in the entire Blue Tide Continent.
Even the small villages and towns of the past had now become large cities.
It could be said that the entire Blue Tide Continent had become an unprecedented city! A city with an entire continent!
Previously, the walls between the cities had all been opened. Only a newly constructed wall was being built along the entire Blue Tide Continent, just like the wall on the island of the Nether Lightning Prison in the Central Plains.
However, the knitting of the province still existed because it was easy to manage.
Xiang Nan flew through the air. The endless humans beneath his feet were endless buildings, as well as buildings that were being expanded at the rate of completion every day.
The flying ships floating in the sky were almost full, and they could be seen everywhere. Xiang Nan had never seen the broken zone of the flying ships in the air during his flight.
What was even more exaggerated was that because there were too many humans, even though the ground was used in this way, it was still not enough to live on. Many large flying ships were simply connected in series, paved with enormous steel plates, and residential areas were directly built on those steel plates.
This formed a grand and spectacular "Sky City".
Fortunately, there was no sun, and the cities in the sky didn't care if they could block the sunlight.
At the same time, Xiang Nan discovered a large-scale plantation.
Just because the sun is gone doesn't mean that all plants will be extinct. In fact, there are a small number of plants that do not need sunlight. It is a kind of nocturnal plant. Strictly speaking, it is a bit like a demon among plants.
Xiang Nan had seen these things before in the Black Sharp Mountain Range. They would shine at night.
Some of these nocturnal plants can be eaten, but without sunlight and sugar, they are obviously unpleasant to eat.
However, in this situation, it was no longer important whether it was unpleasant to eat or not. What was important was whether it was enough to eat or not.
The shortage of food caused everything that could be eaten and filled to become extremely expensive. Furthermore, it was a limited supply per person per day!
The price of spirit stones was also increasing day by day. Now, it had reached an unimaginable height. The value of each spirit stone had increased by a thousand times!
Without the sun, martial artists needed spirit stones, and there were too many martial artists, so the supply of spirit stones could not meet the demand.
Ordinary small clans and teenagers also wanted to enter the martial arts world. They also needed spirit stones. Otherwise, a clan would not be able to nurture a martial arts junior.
Changes were unfolding from all aspects and angles, and these were only a small part of them.
Xiang Nan immediately returned. The Star Guild that had just sat in the middle of the Haotian Empire was still a member of the Son of Heaven Peak. It was his duty to report back to the Star Guild.
In just two months, a brand new Heavenly Star City had already taken shape! It was exactly the same as the Heavenly Star City in the Central Plains.
The deacon of Xiang Nan's Son of Heaven Peak was already dead, and another old man would take over.
After Xiang Nan reported, he returned to the residential area of Son of Heaven Peak. Everything here was exactly the same as before, even the residential area was the same, but those buildings were still very new.
"Xiang Bei! Haha, you came back alive!" Long Xingyun saw Xiang Nan from afar. He quickly ran over and hammered Xiang Nan's chest, "Are you already at the fifth level of Good Fortune?"
"I haven't seen you for more than a year. Your cultivation level has actually risen to such a terrifying level."
When he finally saw his acquaintance, Xiang Nan's mood relaxed a little. He smiled and said, "I'm glad to see you're still alive."
"This is your Southern Domain." Long Xingyun smiled as he looked up into the sky and said, "So you grew up in this kind of environment. It's just that it's much colder than I thought."
Xiang Nan shook his head and said, "That's because there is no sun. Otherwise, our Southern Domain would be much warmer than your Northern Domain."
As the two of them spoke, a large group of martial practitioners from the Son of Heaven Peak also rushed over, blocking Xiang Nan's surroundings. They greeted Xiang Nan enthusiastically one by one.
Seeing these people's smiles, Xiang Nan felt very warm in his heart. In such a cruel environment, they were still optimistic.
"Seeing that everyone is still alive and well, I'm relieved." Xiang Nan smiled sincerely.
The Star Guild suffered a blow, but it was not fatal. All of the guild elites were teleported to the Southern Domain in advance. Those who died in Heavenly Star City were disciples of martial artists with miserable fate and insufficient talent.
"Right, what about Yuan Meng and Xiao Jun? Where's Xiao He?" Xiang Nan asked.
Long Xingyun said, "They have returned to the Haoran Sect. Originally, I was not in the Guild these past few days."
"Our Long Clan has moved here as well. I've been helping the clan these past few days. It just so happens that I came back yesterday and met you today. What a coincidence."
"Is the Long Clan here as well?" Xiang Nan asked.
"It's not just the Long Clan." Long Xingyun said, "All the influential clans have come, including some of the dark clans in the Northern Region."
"It's getting more and more complicated." Xiang Nan said.
"Right." Long Xingyun suddenly lowered his voice and said to Xiang Nan, "A notorious force from the Eastern Region has also moved in. You'd better tell your family not to provoke that force so as to avoid causing unnecessary trouble."
"What faction?" Xiang Nanqi said.
The powers of the Eastern Region? There are many powers in the Eastern Region. How do I know which one?
Long Xingyun's expression was serious as he whispered, "Exile Island!"
"Oh? So it's them." Xiang Nan heaved a sigh of relief.
The power of the island of exile was far stronger than it had been during the exhibition. In fact, the true experts of the island of exile had been restrained by the Profound Sky Sect back then.
The ones who really participated in the battle were all the warriors from the Heaven Scryer Realm of the Thirteenth Street.
"They are in Wolong Province." Long Xingyun's words surprised Xiang Nan.
"Why?" Xiang Nan asked.
Long Xingyun said, "Originally, the people from the island of exile were planning to go to the west, which is the so-called Western Regions."
However, the officials of your Haotian Empire believe that these fugitives are destabilizing factors, so they forcefully planted them in Wolong Province, right next to our Guild, so that the Guild can supervise them.
"This is also good." Xiang Nan nodded, "Since I see that you are fine, I am relieved. I have to hurry back to the Xiang Clan and report to the Haoran Sect."
"If you need anything, just send me a signal."
"In the Haotian Empire, my words still carry some weight."
With that, Xiang Nan turned into a beam of bright light and headed towards Wolong Province.
