looked at Chen Ming, their friendship strengthened through this king slaying
battle. But unlike before, this was the first friendship born from slaying a
King in hundreds of years in Southern Border. He was concerned, "Bro
Wandering, are you alright!"
smiled, "Nothing to worry about, just an average wound."

anyway, "Congratulations bro Wandering. With Demonic Blood Saber, your
strength will greatly increase!"
said, "I wonder how the war against Pitfall Mountain is going. We need to
quickly join the battle, or to at least bring some balance to the war!"
said, "Then I'll let bro Wandering deal with the rest here. Use this time
to recover, while I'll leave first to help surround Pitfall Mountain. When bro
Wandering returns, we will begin another king slaying battle, signaling the
dawn of the Six Kings Alliance's era of prosperity!"
nodded, "Alright, you go first, elder brother Black Tiger. I'll join you
when I have recovered!"
was worried about the war as there were now four people fighting against
Archfiend Azure Lion, instead of the original five. He stepped on his fiend
cloud and yelled, "Men, while this King is away, you are to listen to Archfiend
Wandering Crow's orders!"
Then he sped
towards Pitfall Mountain.
gazed at the Flying Immortal Sect, sending his voice throughout, "Fiends,
pull out of Flying Immortal Sect!"
Chen Ming was
in charge now, and with the added words from Black Tiger, no fiend had the gall
to object. He stood before Flying Immortal Sect, operating the Four
Elements Array to its peak. Between the ravaging firestorm and the frozen
earth, fire and water ground the Flying Immortal Sect to dust, eliciting mournful
howls from within.
chose this moment to approach the sect, witnessing the miserable state the
array was bringing it to. They were clear that Flying Immortal Sect wouldn't

Kings Alliance consolidated their position.

later, there was not even a blade of grass left untouched on the Flying
Immortal Sect's mountain. Chen Ming sent the bear brothers to fetch the spoils
of war, as he searched through the crowd. His eyes landed on the Chilling Ice
Sect Drifting Wind Sect's Sect Leaders. The Drifting Wind Sect's Sect Leader
noticed Chen Ming's eyes and, after a moment of consideration, drew a spiritual
sword he picked who knew when from within the sect, "Flying Immortal Sect

Sect's Sect Leader reacted instantly. Flying Immortal Sect was destroyed but
not the Black Saber Sect. This was a meritorious service for the Six Kings
Alliance. He had no constraints now, weren't they under Pitfall Mountain's rule
before? They were merely changing one ruler for another, and the Six Kings
Alliance wasn't as ruthless as eating children the way Pitfall Mountain did. It
was great to have someone watching your back, "The Flying Immortal Sect is
now exterminated, but Black Saber Sect still exists. To such evil sects that
dare start a war, the only reward is destruction!"
How could the
other cultivators not understand, as they gave approving nods one after the
other, "We will form an allied force and destroy Black Saber Sect!"
The crowd went
on and on with their support, that Black Saber Sect's crimes were unforgivable,
of uncontested evil, "Even if Sir Archfiend is showing mercy, we will not
let this traitorous Black Saber Sect live any moment longer!"
nodded, pleased, "With everyone understanding the seriousness of this
matter, once the Black Saber Sect is no more, come at the Six Kings Alliance
and the Kings will receive you. They will judge your service!"
united and overbearing forces of cultivators, the Black Saber Sect was no more.
All kingdoms' sects started capturing the rest of the Flying Immortal Sect and
Black Saber Sect stragglers. The entire Southern Border was thus united, coming
under Six Kings Alliance's authority.
As for Black
Saber Sect's spoils, the allied army agreed unanimously to hand them over to
Chen Ming's subordinates. There were hundreds of thousands of spirit stones,
spiritual weapons of all sorts, pills, and so on. They knew that these items
weren't theirs since Chen Ming and Black Tiger were the ones killing the Kings.
Spoils of war
and whatnot were all Six Kings Alliance's. What they wanted were the two
destroyed sects' territories. Whoever got their hands on them, their chance to
flourish would increase.
Chen Ming did
some thinking, The two best areas will be left to Chilling Ice Sect and
Drifting Wind Sect. They were quite quick to pick on his
Black Saber Sect and Flying Immortal Sect destruction: 99%. End the

Truth be told,
it never hurt to have more auras, and the chances to get them are oh so
declaring his claim over the Southern Border brought him the benefit of raising
Ling Xian and Zhuo Qingyao's cultivation higher and higher. They wanted to be
kings, but that meant having a territory first, to feed their cultivation. Chen
Ming didn't care about Dao Sense realm pills as it was easy for him to get
ahold of, but Dao Initiation realm pills weren't.
It was time to
let the Southern Border's kingdoms raise

When compared to his two disciples the difference was enormous. He would give
them some life-extending pills to have a long and happy life.
The day of
their passing would be quite painful for him to bear.
Chen Ming sent
for the Chilling Ice Sect and Drifting Wind Sect's Sect Leaders to arrange a
gathering for all the monarchs and sect leaders of the Southern Border. As the
time drew nearer, he sat in his temporary imperial residence and called for
Ling Xian. Walking alongside Ling Xian, he arrived outside the residence and
overlooked the land, then spoke to his disciple, "What do you think of

"If I ask
you to lead the Southern Border, will you accept?"

into his thoughts. There was a gap between him and Zhuo Qingyao, and leading
the Southern Border presented a chance, the chance to grow stronger. The
tribute from the kingdoms would have to pass through his hands first, taking
what was rightfully his, was but a matter of fact. Ling Xian said, "My

nodded, "Good, after declaring my Overlord status over the Southern
Border, I will appoint you as the General Manager. It won't cause you any
problems as you can just hand over any matter to Chilling Ice Sect and Drifting

nodded, draped his black-feathered robe and left the palace. Outside, all the

The Yan Empire was already aware of this affair, but his grandfather and father
were unable to help him at this point, so they sent for Li Changgeng from the
Endless Swords Sect to participate in their stead.

I am not fluent in English, I read through translation, so far I have not found errors that make reading impossible, sorry for the errors.
thanks for the translation.
Next on the
agenda was to deal with the battle for Pitfall Mountain, and Chen Ming found this the right time to
upgrade his strength. He now had spiritual knowledge to spare, thirty thousand
in total, while his merits got used up in a flash, barely six hundred left.
He didn't need
to increase the Fire Crow Art to the 9th stage of Dao Initiation realm, as it
would create a too great of a gap with the other Dao Palaces.
It baffled him
how Dragon Form Art advanced a stage, needing one more upgrade before forming a
Dao Seed. This didn't use merits, it was all plain old cultivation.
Now that the
realm seal was gone, Chen Ming spent, in one move, close to ten thousand
spiritual knowledge, to upgrade Dragon Form Art, Fire Crow Art, Nirvana Astral
Wind, and Jade Water Core Sutra to the 7th stage of Dao Initiation realm,
finally shedding his Fiend General rank.
With the added
power increase and the support of Four Elements Array, his danger value rose to
360, making him a brand new Archfiend.
When it came
to combat ability, none of the Archfiends from the Six Kings Alliance were his

postpone the battle with Archfiend Azure Lion endlessly. Azure Lion was
unwilling for now to leave Pitfall Mountain, but if he left, then he would lay
low in the Myriad Mountains, devouring Great Fiends and Archfiends alike until
he reached the Grand Archfiend rank. At that point, a catastrophe was sure to
fall on his head!
His mind set,

any final matters, he received the mission, "D rank mission: delayed

Over twenty Fiend Generals led the fiend army to assault Pitfall Mountain. With

came down to who's side Archfiend won, bringing a close to this endless war.
On the Pitfall
Mountain's side, Fiend General White Wolf's saw the unending army of the Six
Kings Alliance. It spread far and wide, with no end in sight. The black mass of
fiends marched closer and closer like an unstoppable tide, "Eh? Is the Six
Kings Alliance intending to end this war?"
White Wolf knew that today was going to be a long and hard day, "Chen Ming

threw himself without a care into attacking Old Turtle, completely ignoring the
Tree Flame. The Fiend Converging Banner went up in a black flame, releasing
many attacks in an instant. Old Turtle was using the shield to defend but even
so, he was still struggling to take them all on. He wasn't Azure Lion's match,

looked from afar, unmoving. His current mission was to control the Four
Elements Array and watch over the army. Without the array, the Archfiends would
be dealt in by a casual blow from Azure Lion. Despite the enemy being slightly
wounded, his power never faltered.
No matter the
circumstances, he had to stay put, he had to control the Four Elements Array.

controlled the icicles, also saving Black Python. He then took out a spiritual
herb for him to help his recovery. Black Python then used the last ounce of his
spiritual power to connect his lower body.
There were now
only three Archfiends left to fight, but Azure Lion's situation was no longer
optimistic, his body riddled with wounds.

A day flashed
by, and Chen Ming checked the progress on his mission. It was still at
60%. Pitfall Mountain is already destroyed so why only 60%?
This was Chen
Ming's first great assignment that promised a generous reward. How could Chen
Ming be satisfied with just 60%?
around half of Pitfall Mountain's troops surrendered. Is it because they aren't
dead? Are you saying I need to kill all of them?
Chen Ming sat
in his tent, tending to his wounds when Black Tiger burst in filled with joy.
He was quite lively since he was the one with the lightest injuries, "Bro
Chen Ming, I got some great news. Can you guess what it is?"
faintly heard Great Fiends shouting in excitement outside, with a weaker one
among them. "I'm not, I never was. Don't throw me, ah! Throw your own men,

a bad feeling about this, his brows furrowed, "It can't be that Fiend General

laughed heartedly, "Ha-ha-ha, you're right on target bro!"
pulled the tent flap, letting Chen Ming see through the crack the scar-riddled
body of Fiend General Stag being thrown by other generals. He was caught, then
thrown again, celebrating the victory of this war.

nodded, "Bro Chen Ming is right, Azure Lion's torture must have been close
to driving Fiend General Stag insane. Let the others chat with him, while we go
to the victory feast."
Thanks for the chapters.Also, "Loosing is loosing" should be "Losing is losing" i think.
As Chen Ming
was enjoying some fine wine with the other Archfiends, he pondered on the
problem regarding the completion rate. Seeing as he needed to crush them, then
that meant they should either disappear or die.
Chen Ming sat
in his tent and had Eldest Bear bring White Wolf forward. Eldest Bear made him
kneel, but the general felt no humiliation since the one standing before him
was an Archfiend.
asked, "What are your current intentions?"
replied, "Azure Lion already lost, and we lost with him."
believed in strength, and White Wolf wasn't devoted to Azure Lion. The only one
who truly believed in Azure Lion was Fiend General Stag.
Chen Ming was
also not inclined in taking all of Azure Lion's men. Most of his time was spent
outside, taking care of important matters. The ones on his peak would most
likely amount to Zhuo Qingyao and Ling Xian. If something went wrong then he'd
have a splitting headache.
Chen Ming had
no intention of making this general his subordinate, he was untrustworthy, just
like the other generals.
If a general
cooked a plan to capture Ling Xian and Zhuo Qingyao, he would be vexed without
end. He couldn't allow these guys to ruin such hard to come by chives.
current thinking differed from before. He was quite interested in having Fiend
Generals as subordinates, but now these thoughts shifted towards
and a rarely seen friendship born from killing a King together. They should be
reliable, and when he became a Grand Archfiend, he would get rid of them, the
best way to quickly increase his strength.
could take Pitfall Mountain's power without having to worry about him taking
any, and when he's gone, they would act as a deterrence, cowering others from
having ill thoughts about Ling Xian and Zhuo Qingyao. He would be able to mind
his own business without a care in the world.
This was the

Seeing how submission worked the same as killing, there was no need to continue

of Pitfall Mountain's spoils.
entered the tent with the other Archfiends present and sat in his seat. Black
Tiger said, "The Six Kings Alliance was established as a way to deal with
Azure Lion's suppression. Now that we have killed two Human Kings, and even an
early stage of Divine Palace, our glory grew brighter. Now, after victory, it
is time to distribute the spoils. Bro Chen Ming's contributions are very high,
I wonder what would you think would be the best way to do this?"
Chen Ming did
some thinking, then said, "Firstly, even though I'm an Archfiend, I don't
have a territory. I want Pitfall Mountain."
smiled, "Naturally, we agreed from the start of our alliance, that Pitfall
Mountain will be brother Chen Ming's. Do you perhaps have any other

way I see it, bro Chen Ming's contribution is worth half of Azure Lion's

agreed of course.
the spoils however they wished, with all getting what they wanted. With the
threat of death from Azure Lion off their minds and lording over the
vicinities, the Six Kings Alliance had no intention of disbanding. This
alliance would continue to exist for a long time. Pitfall Mountain was located
inside Six Kings Alliance's territory and as long it didn't collapse, it
guaranteed Pitfall Mountain's safety.
Archfiends subduing the Fiend Generals and the rest of the prisoners, Pitfall
Mountain became empty. The only ones left behind were the bear brothers, with a
thousand Great Fiends, and Ling Xian who returned after finishing his matters
in Southern Border, while leaving the rest of the administration in the hands
of Chilling Ice Sect and Drifting Wind Sect. With the help of the Great Fiends,

thirteen years old, but had a mature air around him, as if having a lifetime of
finishing his meditation, the youth looked at the sky, "Why isn't he here?
If I'm not wrong, it was around this time that Human King Mo Tian came here in

towards Demonic Domain, only to die from his wounds in this valley. He would be

powerful yet. This is my greatest chance, I can't lose it. Let's just wait for
a few more days."
Chen Ming came
here to dig for treasure, to see what goods would a D ranked treasure map hide.
He was searching around Azure Lion's hidden treasure and found a map engraved
on a sheepskin. Knowing the system's style, Chen Ming realized this was the
treasure map and this map led to here, in Demonic Domain. Chen Ming wasn't
afraid, but instead shifted around inside and his energy was now demonic

Chen Ming took

he found his prey, "Li Suyi, never have I imagined you'd run to Demonic
