Star Odyssey - Chapter 1623
“You sure talk big, but you still need Highsage Leon to protect you freaks. Today I’m going to slaughter all of you mermen!” A voice shouted, and then one figure after another emerged from the void. Some distance away, a huge warship appeared. On the hull, “Ignition” could be seen carved, showing where these people came from.
“You’re looking to die!” The merman’s trident stabbed forward, shattering the void. The spatial cracks spread, and it looked as though a black line had been drawn through the void. It shot forward in an attempt to destroy the distant ship.
At the same time, the stones raining down from above fell harder and harder. Many of the stones smashed onto the Ignition Crew’s warship, but they accomplished absolutely nothing.
One of the stones crashed down towards the Ignition Crew’s massive ship, clearly much larger than the other stones.
Inside the warship, a woman looked up and sneered. Her pupils suddenly transformed. “It’s a big stone, but it still can’t avoid the issue with sneak attacks.”
As she spoke, Truesight weakened the stone as the woman waved her hand. She created a weapon from nothing and shot an arrow at the large stone.
The large stone and the long arrow collided in mid-air, causing a dazzling explosion.
The resulting boom forced the seawater back, and then the water shot into the sky. Mermen shot out one after another, and more warships appeared behind the Ignition Crew’s massive ship. Countless cultivators poured out of the fleet.
“Today, my Ignition Crew will destroy Leon’s Armada!” someone roared.
“Arrogant, starting today, no one will remain of the Ignition Crew! There will no longer be the Four Pirate Crews!” There was another shout that responded to the first, and the five-meter-tall Elephant King appeared in the distance. He flung his massive nose about as he stared at the Ignition Crew. Another warship suddenly appeared.
All eight of the regiments under Leon’s Armada appeared, as well as the Ignition Crew’s full forces.
A beautiful woman stood atop a massive ship. Though her face was beautiful, her body was bloated. She was Big Sis, and her brow was furrowed.
After she and her crew had returned to Leon’s Armada, Highsage Leon had declared war on the Ignition Crew. The fighting had already continued for more than ten years without ever stopping. Even when the Sixth Mainland had invaded, the two Pirate Crews had not stopped having friction between them. From the very beginning, Leon’s Armada had held the upper hand, and members of the Ignition Crew had constantly been slaughtered, forcing the crew to retreat. At the moment, they controlled less than half of their original territory.
Despite their current circumstances, the Ignition Crew was actually bold enough to directly confront Leon’s Armada; why? They had to have gained their confidence from something.
The cold glint of a sword appeared, and Liu Feng, captain of the Lightning Sword Regiment tore his sword through the void. The slash extended a great distance, and cut right through the rain of stones and continued on towards the Ignition Crew’s largest warship.
The captain of the Ignition Crew, Jin Mie, opened his eyes as an impressive shield of light appeared and protected the front of the ship as Liu Feng’s sword qi smashed through it. The attack was no longer able to injure even a wounded Enlighter with a power level of 300,000.
Liu Feng had already expected such a result, and he lifted a foot to step into the true universe. When he reappeared, he was already above the Ignition Crew’s largest ship, and his arms were raised high.
Of the Cosmic Sea’s Four Pirate Crews, only Leon’s Armada had two Envoys, which was also why Leon’s Armada was able to dominate the Cosmic Sea and was heralded as the leader of the Four Pirate Crews.
Only the Ignition Crew’s captain was capable of stopping Liu Feng.
Jin Mie appeared and he looked up at Liu Feng. “What a pity that you’re a genius swordsman. In your next life, choose to follow the right person.”
Jin Mie took a step forward as soon as he finished speaking, just barely evading a sword slash that shot out of the true universe. He was nearly cut, and even though he managed to dodge, the slice still slid across the tip of his nose, drawing blood.
Jin Mie quickly retreated, his face pale. Highsage Leon suddenly stepped out of the void. He was holding an intimidating-looking saber and was also laughing wildly. “Jin Mie, you finally worked up the guts to step out for your daddy? You can forget about leaving today, unless you leave your head here for me!”
After speaking, Highsage Leon hefted his massive blade and twirled it around. The pressure given off by the gesture caused the Cosmic Sea to boil, and the rain of stones suddenly stopped. The stones instead started to agglomerate into what looked like an entire landmass that then moved back up into the sky. It was a spectacular sight to behold.
Jin Mie shook his head. “Truly, Highsage Leon, you are too arrogant. This will be the day that your armada will be destroyed!”
“Try it.” Highsage Leon slashed his blade at Jin Mie.
Jin Mie’s pupils shrank, and a screen of light appeared in front of him, weakening Highsage Leon’s attack. At the same time, a weapon appeared in Jin Mie’s hand, and he entered the true universe. Highsage Leon just sneered as he did the same.
Without Jin Mie’s presence, there was no one in the Ignition Crew who was Liu Feng’s opponent. He again attacked the massive warship, but the cultivators aboard showed no fear. The descending sword qi was blocked and torn apart before it could land on the vessel.
Liu Feng’s expression changed. “Cang Zhou.”
Cang Zhou looked up and charged straight for Liu Feng without ever uttering a single word. Liu Feng grew solemn. While he was an Envoy, his power level only slightly exceeded 500,000, whereas Cang Zhou had a power level that surpassed 700,000. The master of Chaosgod Mountain was not someone Liu Feng could stand up to.
To Liu Feng’s understanding, he would absolutely lose, as the gap between him and his opponent was simply too large. It was impossible for Liu Feng to block Cang Zhou.
However, Liu Feng was startled to discover that Cang Zhou’s attack was not that bad, and the result was not as one-sided as the swordsman had feared.
Cang Zhou felt quite helpless. When he had been held captive by Liu Ye and Fei Hua, Lu Yin had made sure that the master of Chaosgod Mountain had been badly injured in order to ensure the man could not escape. Of particular note, the injuries Cang Zhou suffered to his stellular energy vortex were not easy to heal, and they affected the power he could display in battle. At best, he could use the strength of an Envoy with a power level of 600,000, which was not much different from Liu Feng.
If not for Cang Zhou’s injuries, Liu Feng would have already become a corpse.
Cang Song and other experts from Chaosgod Mountain appeared and they all attacked Leon’s Armada.
The armada had tens of thousands of cultivators, and while their numbers could not compare to a force like Chaosgod Mountain, every single member of Leon’s Armada was an elite, just the same as the Ignition Crew. A large number of people in a group was mostly useless in the Cosmic Sea and did not provide almost any advantage.
Just by the numbers, this war could not compare to the battle that had been fought at the Outerverse’s border, and yet the intensity and power used in the current battle were enough to shake up the entire Fifth Mainland. It was a rare, all-out war in the Cosmic Sea.
There was no way for anyone to keep the fighting in the Cosmic Sea hidden, and news of it quickly reached all of the Innerverse’s eight great flowzones.
The Lingling clan, the Divine Venom Dynasty, and the Divine Grade Hall were all unconcerned, as none of them had anything to do with the Four Pirate Crews. It was only the Wen family that managed to put all of the pieces together after they heard about the war between two of the Four Pirate Crews.
Wen Zizai stared at a report, and then looked towards First Flowzone. “It seems that that old bastard Liu Qianjue is preparing for this war in the Cosmic Sea.”
The Wen family’s patriarch was still in the Lost Radiance Academy, and Dean Han commented, “Lu Yin moved your entire Wen family to suppress the Sword Sect because of Wen Diyi. It appears that he was already aware that the Sword Sect was planning to attack Leon’s Armada.”
“That child told us that the Sword Sect was going to attack Fennel Flowzone; I never considered that they would actually be targeting Leon’s Armada,” Wen Zizai said in a cold voice.
Dean Han sighed. “Someone like Liu Shaoqiu is born only once in a hundred years, while those like Liu Tianmu are only seen once in a thousand years, and someone comparable to Shang Qing is only born once every ten millennia. However, how many years must pass for someone of Lu Yin’s caliber to appear? His talent is freakish, and his ambition is unfathomable, as he looks at the entire universe. On top of that, he has a unique personality and is able to draw people to his side and has countless people following. Not to mention, his luck in absurd.
“He is truly a child of destiny, and the Wen family should not become his enemy.”
At this moment, Wen Zizai could not tolerate hearing anyone compliment Lu Yin. “What? Do you want to have your Han family cling to him?”
Dean Han laughed. “The Han family will always remain in Erudite Flowzone, and that will never change. Lu Yin is too controlling and is unwilling to allow people or forces under him to not be under his control. My Han family could never serve such a person.”
Wen Zizai’s eyes flickered. “The sword that Lu Yin wields is Leon’s armada. If they are destroyed in this war, Lu Yin will no longer present any sort of threat. What about his other backing? The Hall of Honor can’t help him with his fights.”
Dean Han was caught off guard; Wen Zizai’s words indicated that the man had heard something different and dangerous from Dean Han’s comment.
In the Sword Sect, Liu Qianjue had a solemn expression. He should have participated in this battle, but Lu Yin had destroyed that opportunity. At this point in time, all that Liu Qianjue could do was hope that the Ignition Crew and Chaosgod Mountain would actually be able to join forces and destroy Leon’s Armada and remove Lu Yin’s sharpest blade. Liu Qianjue could allow Lu Yin to stay in the Outerverse and Fennel Flowzone without issue, but he could not tolerate Lu Yin having any further ambitions.
The sect master of the Sword Sect had still not learned that Lu Yin had attacked Chaosgod Mountain. As Lu Yin had guessed, Cang Zhou had no explanation to provide for how he had managed to recover the mountain, especially from Liu Ye and Fei Hua. Each of the two was an expert with a power level of more than 700,000, so who could be strong enough to help Cang Zhou and save him from such powerhouses?
The war between two of the Four Pirate Crews had no affect on Blazing Mist Flowzone, and so the war between the Ross Empire and the sylvan dragons continued with both sides doing their best to recruit outside experts to their own side.
While the fighting in the Cosmic Sea did not have much of an impact on the Innerverse, it created a great deal of turbulence within the Hall of Honor, and the nine overseers immediately convened to discuss the matter.
“It’s best for us to stop this war. The Fifth Mainland has already achieved a level of balance, and this war will destroy that. No matter if we look at Leon’s Armada or the Ignition Crew, nothing can be allowed to happen to either.”
“How do we stop it? We can’t intervene in such matters so long as they don’t create too big of an impact on ordinary people. This battle will have no impact at all on any regular humans.”
“The Ignition Crew has actually teamed up with Chaosgod Mountain, but why would Chaosgod Mountain work with them?”
“It’s definitely impossible for them to target Leon’s Armada, unless they have another motivation.”
All of the nine overseers looked at each other. None of them were stupid, so such a thing was readily apparent to all of them. Still, not one of them could see the true purpose pushing Chaosgod Mountain forward. Even if the Hall of Honor received information regarding the entire universe, there was nothing that they could find on this matter.
“Overseer Xin, please share your opinion,” San Sheng looked at Xin Jiao as he spoke.
Everyone else looked over at Xin Jiao. After all, Xin Jiao and Mr. Yu were both from the Cosmic Sea.
Xin Jiao shook her head. “I can’t speak with certainty on this matter, but the conflict between Leon’s Armada and the Ignition Crew did not appear overnight. An all-out war was only to be expected.”
San Sheng then looked at Mr. Yu. “I wonder if Mr. Yu has an opinion on the matter?”
It had been a long time since Mr. Yu had spoken to all of the nine overseers. The man had a gentle demeanor and was easy to overlook. He only occasionally would speak up, and he held no additional role with any real authority. The only time that he had spoken up in recent times had been to give Lu Yin his firm support. Mr. Yu had been supported by Yuan Shi, and so he readily helped Lu Yin stop Shamrock Enterprise from moving their hidden world headquarters to Mt. Microcosms.
Everyone expected Mr. Yu would speak up in support of Leon’s Armada at this time and push for stopping the war. After all, the current situation did not look good for Leon’s Armada. On top of everything else, Mr. Yu was someone from the Longevity Brigade, and the Longevity Brigade maintained a good relationship with Leon’s Armada.
However, his words caught everyone off guard. Sure enough, Mr. Yu did take a firm stance on the situation, but surprisingly, he demanded the eradication of Leon’s Armada.
“Everyone, we cannot forget that Highsage Leon is also the pirate king, and that Leon’s Armada controls the pirates throughout the universe. Pirates have always been seen as criminals to be wiped out, so there’s no need to mention Highsage Leon. He is indeed the Pirate King, but because of various hesitations held by many different powers, no one has ever attempted to punish Highsage Leon. Now is the time to do so,” Mr. Yu declared in a firm tone.
Cong Ying and other overseers stared at Mr. Yu with odd expressions, as none of them could understand why he had suddenly started aiming at Leon’s Armada.
Upon hearing Mr. Yu’s words, Bu Laoweng immediately sent Lu Yin a message, informing the youth that the Longevity Brigade was determined to become enemies with Leon’s Armada, which was the only reason for Mr. Yu to have openly declared such a position.
Lu Yin had hoped to learn of the opinion of the Longevity Brigade through the overseers, but the information he received left him disappointed.
