Chapter 133: Legacy – The Terrifying Truth!
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
The sixth mountain.
Lu Ming was conversing with the gigantic boulder man.
Finally, after strings of intermittent conversation, he could roughly figure out the situation — It was true that from time to time, a new batch of cultivators would appear!
They would appear in the legacy.
They would also come and participate in the legacy!
Those people… would also go through the legacy.
They would also pass through the seven mountains!
The most puzzling thing was… After going through the legacy, they would leave and wait for the next cycle. When the energy of the legacy was restored, they would then appear again!
It was back and forth.
However, they had not touched the legacy once.
The reason was unknown.
“Has it been cracked already?”
This was Lu Ming’s first reaction.
It was true.
If he were to regard the Legacy Card legacy as a program and Lunar Shadow as the CD key, the current situation constraint of Lunar Shadow was too obvious!
The Lunar Shadow legacy had been cracked by someone!
Hence, a large number of pirated inheritors appeared!
A big shot who had attained the Lunar Shadow Card cracked it and secretly controlled the legacy. But if that was the case, why didn’t he simply take it away?
It would be emptied in two to three times!
The most precious item was the Lunar Shadow legacy!
If someone had really cracked this place and plundered all the resources, simply taking the Lunar Shadow legacy would be the best option. However…
They did not do so!
He kept having the feeling that something did not add up.
“And the endless Sword Intent and Sword Aura,” Lu Yan reminded him.
These great powers should not have been accommodated!
Lu Ming suddenly spoke, “Was the legacy this big before?”
The gigantic boulder man scratched his head. “I remember that it used to be very big. There are also many living creatures. They’re all gone now.”
It used to be bigger and had now become smaller…
If it was the legacy site…
The energy sealed was a constant and the Lunar Shadow Card was just the key. All the energy should be activated the moment the legacy was opened. However, this place… had become smaller!
Countless people had been here!
In that case…
That was only one possibility!
Lu Ming glanced at his elder sister.
Lu Yan nodded slightly.
She closed both her eyes. After a long time, a ray of sword gleam penetrated the sky and earth.
The sky trembled.
Lu Ming’s pupils constricted.
As per their guess — this place was not an illusion!
The structure of the legacy site… Some were built in ancient tombs and some were attached to objects. The illusion was only a layer of rules. However, the Lunar Shadow legacy this time…
It was entirely built in reality!
Using reality as the basis and the illusion was the rules, an enormous legacy site was built!
Everything… was real!
Sword Intent, Sword Aura…
All these were built on top of the real world!
This was the only way that this part of the world could accommodate so much Sword Aura and Sword Intent. All of it was real!
This place… was reality!
The portal activated by the Lunar Shadow Card was only a teleport!
They were not in Tian Du City now.
The ocean that they had seen at the start was most probably real! The Lunar Shadow Card activated the portal to teleport them to this unknown island!
This… was the truth!
The so-called transformation from big to small…
Probably, as time evolved and energy decreased, the legacy site became smaller. Therefore, some places would appear outside the legacy?
This unknown island had long been discovered by someone?
After all, it had been around for too long!
They began to research how to enter the territory.
Those inheritors, they were not pirates.
A more accurate term to describe them would be stowaway!
They survived in the legacy with a special method. They conveniently took away the resources of Lunar Shadow legacy with such a special method.
Leaving behind only the trials and assessments!
So, that was what was going on!
Everything had become clear now.
In that case…
When the gigantic boulder man said that they would never fight for the legacy, there could only be one reason — They were not qualified to inherit the legacy!!!
Right from the beginning.
The legacy had requirements — They had to possess the Lunar Shadow stamp and only the seven inheritors were qualified to inherit the legacy. Even Lu Yan could not do so!
They were basically not qualified!
They could only give up and leave before they arrived at the legacy.
This was the real reason!
“Boulder, what is the timing of their appearance?”
Lu Ming suddenly asked.
Boulder looked puzzled. “They will always appear each time the energy has just been restored. It’s during this period. Aren’t you one of them?”
He could not understand the ‘they’ in Lu Ming’s words.
Lu Ming squinted his eyes suddenly.
It was now?!
So as to speak…
Their appearance had coincided perfectly with the timing of those people! However, Lu Ming and the group did not see any enemies along the way!
What were they waiting for?!
“Sister. If you were in their shoes… What would you do if you wanted to get the legacy?” Lu Ming suddenly spoke.
“Wait. Wait for the real inheritors to appear.”
Lu Yan understood what her brother meant.
At this moment…
He did not know how many people were watching them in secret, waiting for them, or waiting for the moment the legacy would appear. They would then take action to snatch away the legacy!
“They should be very far away.”
Lu Yan could vaguely sense it.
If they were nearby, she would definitely be able to discover them.
Furthermore, during the assessment, it was the norm for one to improve their ability tremendously. Hence, the other party would definitely not appear within the scope of her perception!
They must be somewhere… watching them secretly.
Perhaps they could not hear them, but they could definitely ‘watch’ their progress!
They were waiting.
Waiting for the legacy to appear!
There was a more interesting point —
Was their timing really that accurate?
If they had come to the legacy earlier and discovered that the energy of the various assessment had not been restored, their suspicions would be aroused. Hence, was all of this really a coincidence?
This was all part of a scheme!
Amongst the seven of them in the group, someone definitely knew the truth!
Right from the beginning, step by step, someone had been secretly plotting and leading them into the trap. Step by step, that person was directing the entire Lunar Shadow operations!
He had no idea.
He had no idea.
In Lu Ming’s perspective, besides Gao Tianlang who brought his younger sister along, the rest were all possible suspects! No, if Gao Tianlang was the one who plotted this, of course, he would have ways to protect his younger sister!
He was also suspicious!
Everyone was suspicious!
Because they needed someone to activate the legacy!
“Sister, did anyone ever collect the Lunar Shadow Cards?”
Lu Ming asked.
Lu Yan nodded slightly.
Since they wanted to activate the legacy, naturally, they had investigated Lunar Shadow before.
This set of unique legacy had gone through ages. Countless strong and powerful forces had eyed this legacy but they did not succeed eventually.
There were a total of seven cards, how could it be easy to collect all of them?
When it came to people like Zhao Yunshan who did not lack money!
What could you use to exchange with him?
If it was in the hands of someone like Lu Yan who had a master, although she was only playing with it, what could you use for an exchange? If you wanted to exchange, the price to pay was definitely heavy and miserable!
Hence, there had not been an opportunity to activate the Lunar Shadow legacy, until now.
It was in the form of a collaboration!
“Something bad is going on.”
Lu Yan’s expression was grave.
She was worried about her younger brother.
She was long used to killings and had many means to do so but her brother was only a Card Creator. If a large-scale battle were to occur, what should he do?
Since the other party had already made the arrangements, they would definitely have someone targeting her!
Who would protect her brother then?
At that time…
“It’s alright, sister.”
Lu Ming’s expression was calm. “There’s still the seventh mountain, right?”
Seven assessments and seven mountains!
Those people would appear only after they passed through all the assessments and when the legacy was activated. Hence, they still had time to prepare. They still had a chance!
“Should we leave directly?”
Lu Yan remarked.
Since they were not fighting for the legacy, there was no need to remain until the end.
“I’m afraid we can’t.”
Lu Ming shook his head.
If they had guessed it right, they would definitely end up on this island and not The First Academy if they were to forcefully exit the legacy site!
That was the real headquarters of the enemy.
would only lead them to death!
Lu Ming tried to sort out his thoughts.
The current situation was already very clear.
The legacy site was situated on an island. As time evolved, the site had significantly reduced in size. As a result, other people or forces gradually entered this place and continuously developed it.
Later on, they also discovered Lunar Shadow’s secret.
They activated this plan to destroy them and then attain the legacy!
What about them?
Zhao Yunshan, Gao Tianlang, Lu Yan and so on, each of them was an enemy with a strong and powerful background. They were not people that these forces could deal with.
It was true.
If they could win them in a fight, why would they craze over such a legacy?
These forces had, at most, moderate powers.
In that case…
In order to avoid being killed by the strong backers of Zhao Yunshan and the group, these people would definitely exterminate everyone. They would ensure that they murdered everyone who had stepped into the legacy site!
This was their plan!
Even if no one were to return home, everyone would think that something had happened to the legacy site… Who would know that this legacy site was built on reality?
It was a perfect plan!
It was just that…
They had actually been discovered…
Lu Ming sneered.
“Sister, it seems that we also have to make some preparations…”
At this very moment…
Someone’s eyes were looking gloomy.
It was true.
They did not know when it happened but there had been some hiccups in their plan.
Their initial script was perfect. They even analyzed everyone’s character and devised the plot. Everything was perfect!
Gao Tianlang’s Legacy Card had been taken away…
Lu Ming appeared.
Afterward, Gao Tianlang could only snatch someone else’s card. That was fine. Thereafter, a guy called Wang Xuan appeared out of nowhere, and damn, he even brought along a six-star!
It was too messy!
The location that they had initially arranged for actually changed due to these ridiculous factors. Fine, so be it. But it actually appeared at The First Academy!
To hell with it… What was that place?
Would someone discover anything?
They did not know.
The entire script and plot created by them had already collapsed before the legacy was activated.
If that was all, so be it.
By right, the atmosphere between the inheritors should not be so harmonious during the legacy. Under their ‘instigation’, they should fight against each other and kill one another. The plot would only become better as it developed!
In the end…
Lu Ming conquered everything!
Since he was not participating in the legacy, whether he did that or that, those people really did not care!
With Lu Yan around, did they dare to risk their lives?
The plot in the legacy had also crumbled.
What did this mean?!
They did not even know!
They were not going to think about it.
Since it was already as such, what else could they do?
However, that would end very soon!
This time, there would not be any more accidents.
There was no script and no plan. There was only the true display of abilities!
All of you… will die here.
