Scriptures

Ok I've been wondering a few things.

1. What are the names of the scriptures?
2. When does he get the scriptures?
3. What do the scriptures do?

  • Physique Scripture (Cleansing Incense Ancient Sect - Volume 01)
    Death Scripture (Prime Ominous Grave - Sacred Netherworld)
    Space Scripture (Buddhist Funeral Plateau - 12th Volume)
    Thought Scripture (10th World)
    World Emperor’s Scripture (Don’t know which one, maybe Dao Scripture)
    Longevity Scripture (Immortal Demon Lineage - Immortal Demon Grotto Master’s Lineage in Immortal World)
     
    I think he also got the Time Scripture but I’m not completely sure. 
  • What does each one do?

    Physique Scripture - Immortal Physiques or you can put it in a way of Body Transformation
    Can also cultivate absolute domains(after half completion-after destroying life reduction)

    Death Scripture - Controls dead existence(more death energy means more powerful summon/also makes the user more formidable in terms of defense(lessen damage/regeneration) 
    it also has special features: 3rd death gives a fate loop, a very very lucky fate
    6th death gives a special item? (Not sure though, but he got the Trident although he traded it for the Iron Maelstrom) 
    9 deaths -
    18 deaths - 
    (can anyone pls fill in my blanks)

    Space Scripture - controls space, space displacement, space distortion, world creation(not major world but something similar to lesser imperial devil world) 
    just all about space

    thought scripture - name itself, thought but relies on one’s dao heart, you do know that mc dao heart is his ultimate so he can create ultimate(weapons or heavenly scriptures of sort)  through his thoughts

    this is all i’ve known so far

    as for the other scriptures, I’ve inly  red the lnmtl up till 2700+ so I don’t know the functions of the others

    and lastly, sorry, bad english
  • there is a time scripture which he got recently
  • Death scripture after 9 deaths,he can strip other people from their powers.
    He did this when a lot of IE's came for revenge when he ascended above 9 worlds after becoming IE himself.
    And death scripture has given li qiye the power to turn in to death itself.
    As long his opponent is born in  the universe.
    He can kill them easily.
    And they can't resist from dying.
    As he became death himself.
    This happens in 3iw arc.

    No he has not died in 3 iw.
    As the physique scripture has evolved li qiye to a level that even if the universe explodes.
    He still won't die.
    His physical body strength reached to a level that he can just one punch and destroy the 3iw universe right now.
    As he fought the dark giant who could eat all the first ancestor in 3 iw as snacks.
    When the dark giant tried to possess li qiye.
    Li qiye just refined this dark giant in his body and ate him instead.
    And death scripture makes it more harder for him to die.
    But he does want to die really, so that the death scripture would make his body almost 10 times stronger then before.

    Man that’s OP, and I’m loving it. I hope LQY becomes the most OP MC in all Wuxia/Xianxia Novels by its end story. 2020 before Bao finishes the translation at Immortal World Arc. After that there’s still the returning to 9 worlds, then there’s the remaining Ancient Ming (you better get ready for Dark Crow’s return) and then there’s still the OTH and his peers. Damn

    I guess IET MCs are the only ones who would have him beat right now, since at the end of their stories they are all pretty much omnipotent universe creators. Although the power levels in all IET novels get kind of ridiculous at some point or another because the power scaling is absurd, so I'm not sure if they really even count. I'll be interested to see how strong end game LQY is, though.

    No actually,  Li qiye has already surpassed all other novel's MC as far as i know.
    He already has created a universe in his fate palace.
    The other MC even at the end of the novel cannot do what li qiye did while in 3 immortal world universe.
    Plus he has 2 dao fruits, which are as powerful as the universe.
    P.S. - : The main dark giant seems to be really ugly powerful too.
    One action of main dark giant has been shown in the novel.
    This action already made his position above over all other novel MC's in power comparison.
    And wondering, if li qiye could easily beat him or have a hard time.

    Is the main giant the one he sealed in his dao heart after entering the Immortal Dao lineage? Another question, is the main giant stronger than OTH? 
  • The one sealed in his heart is just  normal, And it also fears the main giant.
    By the Dark Giant actions, he seems stronger.
    But can't say that he would be stronger then OTH.

    Is the Dark Giant the true big bad? Or have we seen what looks to be the end game boss yet? Speaking of, have we even gotten a glimpse of OTH yet in the story?

    The Darkness, that attacks the 3 IW in the current raws, is a group of dark supreme giants who come from an unknown place. Currently, they hide from the 3 Immortals in the Impassable Sea and seem to plan their next steps to devour the 3 IW.

    The Dark Giant, who was captured and imprisoned in Li Qiyes dao heart, is one of them and the strongest existence Li Qiye faced in direct combat since the recapture of his true body.

    The Dark Giant was in a weakened state when he attacked Li Qiye, and it is implied that this state was caused in a battle with the 3 Immortals. According to the dark giants comments, at least one of his fellow dark giants is stronger than him. It is not explained whether this statement is based on his weakened condition or not.

    The 3 Immortals were powerful enough to reach the end of the Ultimate Expedition, but retreated due to some unknown/unexpected consequences. Given that the dark giants are considered a threat by the 3 Immortals, they should be close in power to OTH, at least in their combined state as a group. They also seemed to be on guard against OTH, and tried to evade him by being as covert as possible when they entered the 3 IW.

    Is it like those Supreme Giants came from another World, or another Universe? There’s the Nine Major Worlds, Tenth World and the 3 Immortal World, did these worlds came from the same Universe? If so, is the OTH the Sole Sovereign of the current raws, the one at the top seat?

    Most of these supreme dark giants are survivors of their epoch and were once the supreme of their own epoch. E.g. Wild Samsara Ancestor. Survivors of epoch either fall into darkness or hide in the burial grounds from OTH. It has already been stated in novel raws that LQY is the supreme of the current epoch he belongs in, or so he claims himself.

    In one of the conversation between LQY and one of the 3 immortals where the immortal would give out free treasures for any story that can touch his heart,

    LQY stated: "Long ago, there was an ancient courtyard, in the yard there is a section where the sunlight shines upon. Similarly, there was an eerie and dark room in the courtyard and also another room which is secured by an iron grid . In this courtyard, therein lives a bunch of old men and also a lot of infants growing up. However, when dusk arrives these old men would grab the infants and swallow them into their stomach. Some of these infants escape into the dark and eerie room while some others will choose to escape into the other room secured by an iron grid. As a matter of fact, majority of these infants are still deep in sleep, however, there was an infant who wants to kill all of these old men and destroy this ancient courtyard "

    From the above, I infer that the "old men" above refers to OTH, the "infants who escape into the dark room" are the supreme of epochs or powerhouses who fall into darkness and "the infants who escape into the secured room" are the powerhouses like Old Ghost, Immortal Demon Grotto, rulers of the various burial grounds and last but not least the 3 immortals of 3IW. Not forgetting the last statement "an infant who wants to kill all these old men" - probably LQY talking about himself.

    Conclusion: Dusk refers to apocalypse/end of an epoch and OTH is most likely not a single entity but a group of extremely powerful beings.
  • The author never clearly stated how Li Qiyes universe is structured. I see the ten worlds and the 3 IW as separate galaxies, like for example Meng Haos/Allheavens starry sky in ISSTH  which is only one of many galaxies of the main universe.

    There could be other separate galaxies, or at least subworlds, besides the 10 worlds and the 3 IW. There's for example the dark world, where the dark giants who attacked the Deity Acedemy in the 10th world hide.

    The 10 worlds are special in the sense that they have OTH, who seems to govern the world and adjucate people with heavens punishment.

    Maybe the 10 worlds are an exception to the rule, or other cultivators weren't simply willing to become the Heavens in their respective Galaxy, because becoming the Heaven comes with certain sacrifices, like being imprisoned or shackled to a certain place etc which would explain why OTH never directly acts. This would also explain why so many people retreated right before the success of the Ultimate Expedition. You can be pretty powerful and immortal by simply feeding off the living beings in a galaxy or relying on a certain treasures.

    All these are questions the author never clearly answers. Maybe at the "supposed" end of the novel, when Li Qiye confronts OTH a second time, he sheds some light on it.

    Conclusion: Dusk refers to apocalypse/end of an epoch and OTH is most likely not a single entity but a group of extremely powerful beings.
    I think this story doesn't directly mention OTH. From the dialogues of Li Qiye with other Supreme Giants its safe to assume that OTH is a single entity.

    OTH is simply the rule of the world, he brings forth day and night, the birth and death of an epoch. Reason for doing so can only be speculated, but an obvious reason could be a natural balance that he has to sustain. His governed realm can probably only grow to a certain extent before it has to be torn down to ensure its survival. Whoever doesn't submit to this cycle gets killed or suppressed by OTH.

    When dusk arrives, the dark giants depicted as old men, devour the living beings of the current epoch depicted as babies to hibernate the night. The babies have two choices to survive. They either escape to the dark room, and also become old men who prey on the young, or they try to break through the iron grid to escape the courtyard. The iron grid is most likely an allegory for the Ultimate Expedition and OTH who waits at the end of it.

    The circumstance that the dark giants harvest whole epochs with impunity, leads to the conclusion that OTH doesn't need to devour life to sustain himself. SWA s injuries, which were inflicted by OTH, came from the attempt to create life, not from devouring his epoch.
  • The 10 worlds is a single universe.
    As there can be only 1 single IE with heaven's will at a time.
    While the emperor world is another one.
    As they have multiple IE'S.
    But with some restrictions of the it's universe laws.
    And the 3 immortal world is also a different universe.
    Where there are level above IE. 
    Such as existing forever immortal.
    First ancestor of ten thousand lineage.
    First ancestor of emperor lineage.
    First ancestor of immortal lineage.
    And the source of darkness was way before all universes existed.
    And it was destroyed by dark giants.
    Li qiye went  back in the destroyed time line.
    And was met with powerful shockwave that nearly cracked and destroyed his body.
    Which is now so strong that  a single universe exploding just won't do anything.
    So  my  guess is what happen to all the universes that existed before the current universes were all destroyed.
    Li qiye used his eternal longevity and highest beginning primal will and his fate palaces.
    And to see how many dark giants are there.
    He walked in to center of those explosion of all universes destruction timeline.
    But after that it was not mentioned what li qiye saw there?.
    Which is one of the two reasons that i said his power has surpassed all other novel mc's.
  • So the "source of darkness" was some sort of naturally occurring thing before it was destroyed by the dark giants? Also, neat that Li Qiye can time travel apparently; did he get the Time Scripture?
  • There is no true source of darkness which is material and can be destroyed.

    One of the reoccuring themes of the novel is the free will of living beings as origin of dark and light. True darkness and Light are merely both the ultimate lengths cultivators go to survive, or to furtheir their own agenda. Both achieve "ultimate strength" by destroying or consuming all. The dark giants slaughter and devour their prey, while the "giants of light" mind dominate their followers, and eventually devour them too, albeit in an apparently less violent way. Li Qiye for example walks the path between light and dark.

    And yes, he can time travel and also got the time scripture in the late 2900s.

    To time travel, you need a supreme dao heart and the ability to resist the strength of the world and time you want to travel to. 
  • edited April 10
    Being able to read chinese raws, the time travel in this novel is unique in the sense that the user also experience the passage of time as he/she travels through time (Not like other novels where user just jumps to a point in time). There was an example when LQY travelled through eons to find a supreme dark giant (very very powerful, even 3 immortals request LQY's alliance to take this existence down together), it was stated user had to have an unmoveable Dao Heart to withstand such a long passage of time travel without turning into dust.
  • So, putting out the Supreme Giants out of the picture(both light and dark), is OTH similar to Allheaven? I know its kinda vague but Allheaven brings forth Tribulations to someone who is a threat to him. Is OTH something like that? Sorry, very arguable. I’m really curious about this OTH. Also, I remembered in one of the past chapters in the Heaven Spirit World arc, LQY called him “Old Man” when he tried to replenish the Peacock Treefather’s Longevity.
  • Old Thief Heaven should be exactly like Allheaven.

    People get suppressed/punished after they have reached a certain level, or show extraordinary potential for growth. 

    For example, there are only two emperors in the 10 th world who are not suppressed by OTH. Both are old man uninterested in cultivation to strive for hegemony with the heavens. One is a depressed man who waits for death, but apparently can't achieve the last step, the other spends countless life times among mortals and devotes his life to crafts of mortals. 
  • Who are they? Is the one old man you say is the one who LQY competed with his sweet potatoes and also the one who taught LQY “Peeping through the heavens”? Don’t remember the other one
  • The first one is Immortal Emperor Mu Zhuo, the sweet potato guy.

    The second one is probably Saint Emperor and was visited by Li Qiye in chapter 2006.
