When he finally arrived at the Haoran Sect, Xiang Nan immediately went to visit his master, Xu Caiyue, only to discover that she was not there.
This was very rare. Xu Caiyue rarely left Sun Palace unless something big happened.
Ignoring him, he found Yuan Meng and Xiao Jun. From their mouths, he knew that not only was Xu Caiyue not in the sect, but most of the elders were also not there.
They all went to Haojing.
Because something big is happening.
Once the absolute overlord of the world, the Huangpu Aristocrat Clan, was still divided.
The clan was divided into two parts, the Southern and Northern clans.
The Nan Clan was a conservative faction. Before the invasion of the alien realms, they had already arrived in the Southern Domain and moved away their property.
Right now, the people of the southern clan of the Huangpu Aristocrat Clan were in Haojing, discussing major issues with the Haotian Imperial Clan, preparing to sell the countless spirit stones that the Huangpu Aristocrat Clan had accumulated to the Haotian Empire at a price that was even lower than the cost price.
This was indeed a major event. The Huangpu Aristocrat Clan controlled countless spirit stones. Once they sold all of them, it would greatly alleviate the awkward situation in the martial arts world.
On the other hand, the northern radical factions of the Huangpu Clan moved out of this world and went to another world.
The Northern Clan and the Bai Clan had reached a common understanding. They had betrayed their hometown and really went to another world to do business.
The Bai Clan attached great importance to the Huangpu Clan because they were able to develop to such a large scale in a single world, and they helped the Huangpu Clan migrate to the northern clan.
Any continent or world would welcome such aristocratic families. Their appearance would bring about a great stimulus to the economy.
And this meeting in Haojing was not just about spirit stones, but also about a series of counter-offensive plans to be launched against alien realm martial artists.
Feng Xuan wore a long robe and sat opposite Xiang Nan with a tired expression. He threw a piece of sugar into his mouth and said, "This is the current situation."
"What are your plans in the future?"
Xiang Nan muttered to himself, "What do the officials think? With my strength alone, it's very difficult for me to accomplish any heaven-defying and destiny-changing actions."
Feng Xuan said, "The Otherworlds are still continuously sending their martial artists to our world in an attempt to completely occupy our world."
"The spatial passageway constructed by the Profound Sky Sect is located in the Central Plains. At this time, the Central Plains has been completely occupied by the Profound Sky Sect and the Bai Clan."
"Our initial plan is to interrupt the spatial passageway so that people from other worlds will not be able to enter, and those who are already here will not be able to return."
"This is a good idea." Xiang Nan nodded, "Once they are trapped here, we can also let them taste the feeling of not having the sun."
Feng Xuan said, "But this is very difficult. If you want to interrupt the spatial passageway, you have to enter the Central Plains. But there, not to mention ordinary martial artists, even if Emperor Haotian and the Heavenly Dao Old Man go, they will be ruined."
"You probably don't know yet. Empyrean Firmament has already perished in the battle of Heavenly Star City."
"What!" Xiang Nan stood up abruptly, unable to believe the news.
Feng Xuan nodded and said, "It's true. Three days ago, we already received the exact news that Empyrean Firmament died in battle at the hands of a Heaven Ranked Eighth Layer expert from the Bai Clan."
Xiang Nan felt that a piece of his heart was suddenly emptied.
Empyrean Firmament was one of the two pillars of the Star Guild. Now that he had fallen, Empyrean Starry River was the only one left in the guild.
Particularly Empyrean Firmament, the supreme leader of the Sword of Judgment.
It was self-evident that his death had dealt a blow to the Guild.
"I'm not very good at martial arts." Feng Xuan looked at Xiang Nan seriously and asked, "Is the Bai Clan really that powerful?"
"Tell me, what method did they use to kill Empyrean Firmament?"
Although Xiang Nan didn't want to admit it, he could only nod his head and say, "It's really amazing."
"The Bai Clan's martial skills are endless, and their grades are frighteningly high. The martial skills they grasp are unimaginable in our world of martial arts."
"However, the higher the grade of a martial skill, the higher the requirement for talent. Not everyone can learn it."
"That's for sure." Feng Xuan nodded.
"Next, you can go to the Demonic Beast Continent." Feng Xuan thought for a moment and said.
"Why?" Xiang Nan was delighted. Feng Xuan's thoughts coincided with his own, but he wanted to go because there were a large number of spirit stones that the Eight-eyed Snake could absorb.
But what was Feng Xuan's motive for proposing this?
"People from other worlds are busy catching people from our world and refining them into Origin Pills and Longevity Pills," Feng Xuan said. "Oh, Longevity Pills are our temporary nicknames. The exact names are not clear yet."
"Humans are the number one resource valued by foreign martial artists. This is also an important reason why they came to conquer our world."
"Spirit stones are of little importance to them, but now that there is no sun, they know that our martial artists will definitely demand large quantities of spirit stones."
"Therefore, not long from now, they will definitely go back to seal off the Demonic Beast Continent and cut off our spirit stone mining."
"If you can go ahead of time, you can also give us a chance."
Xiang Nan's heart skipped a beat and his expression changed.
"You've also thought of it, haven't you?" Feng Xuan took a sip of tea and said, "Sealing off the sun is only the first step of a player from another world."
"The invasion of another world expelled all martial artists and humans to the Southern Domain, causing most of them to live in seclusion here."
"A dense population means that our demand for spiritual energy is growing infinitely, while the spiritual energy of heaven and earth is decreasing infinitely."
"In the long run, even if they don't attack the Southern Domain, the martial world of the Southern Domain will collapse on its own."
"Yes, it is indeed a very vicious and once and for all plan." Xiang Nan sighed.
It was like raising a pig in a pigsty and giving it three jin of forage every day.
Suddenly, three more pigs were put into the pigsty one day, but they were only given half a kilogram of forage.
Do you think the most terrifying thing is that the sun has sealed off and the spiritual energy has been cut off, causing all the martial artists in the Southern Domain to lose the chance to advance?
Far from it.
All the martial artists gathered in the Southern Domain were like the four pigs in the pigsty. In the end, they would definitely fight crazily for the pitiful half jin of herbs!
Right now, the Haotian Empire was stable, but over time, martial artists' demand for spiritual energy would definitely lead to civil strife.
At that time, even if the martial artists of the other world did not enter, their own people would still be beaten into pieces, and in the end, they would commit suicide.
Feng Xuan pointed to his brain and said, "Sometimes, wisdom is far more powerful than weapons."
"They can clearly destroy us from continent to continent, but they don't. That way, their own losses will be huge."
"That's why they chose to expel everyone to the Southern Domain and let us kill each other."
Feng Xuan knocked on the table, "Do you really think that the Huangpu Aristocrat Clan was really kind enough to suddenly sell spirit stones at a loss? No."
"It's because they saw the intentions of the Profound Sky Sect and the Bai Clan, so they could only do this. This is called a slow-moving plan."
Xiang Nan hurriedly asked, "Then my current priority is to bring back as many spirit stones as possible to the Southern Domain."
Feng Xuan shook his head, "That can only solve the urgent problem, but it is not helpful to the overall situation. What you need to do now is to raise your realm at all costs."
Feng Xuan patted Xiang Nan on the shoulder, "Next, the Southern Domain will have a very specific plan to deal with alien realm martial artists, one by one, but don't participate in any of this."
"No matter how important the plan seems, don't worry about it. Don't ask, don't pay any attention to it."
"Why?" Xiang Nan said.
Feng Xuan used his Yuan Qi to condense a spider web, and then struck his fist on the spider web, only causing the spider web to protrude from the top.
Afterwards, he used his Yuan Qi to condense a cone and stabbed it into the spider web, creating a gap in the spider web.
Feng Xuan looked at Xiang Nan seriously. "The Heavenly Tribulation Realm experts in our world are like that fist. Their strength is not enough to open the light guiding array that envelops the world."
"As for you, you are that awl. You cannot be distracted by anything. You need to increase your strength at all costs."
"With your talent, when you reach the ninth level of the Heavenly Tribulation Realm, you will be much more powerful than all the ninth level Heavenly Tribulation martial artists in the world."
"Only you can poke open the thin film of the light-guiding array and return the sun to us."
"This is called Project Sun."
