I apologize in advance for terrible summary, and this is still only some of it (past the translated parts, but still not the whole arc).1) After the Blood Church set lead by the guy who had betrayed the grandpa with ruined cultivation, he learns the basics of the large areas in the Holy Land of Martialism (HLM), and that he needs to make good relations to get help to pass the "barriers" between sections. Since he's here in Cyanwood in the south, he decided to work in that section2) CF enters the examination process, learning that South Continent is viewed as trash (Tests on their Heavenly road much easier than his eastern content's version of the Road)3)He passes tests, befriends one who is genuinely nice to him, stands up to one of the Exam people who is bullying another. 4) The bully's sister hears about it, confronts CF but doesnt do crap since CF is OP,5) Sister of entrance exam bully gets assaulted and almost raped in open public by brat who is related to Punishment department Managing Elder of the South School section6) CF gets furious, punishes the brat. Then it follows to punishing the various higher level Elders that come to "punish" CF immediately after, but of course CF defeats them, taking them on 1 vs 4 at the same time.7) This all gets CF noticed by his OP strength, especially because people think he really is from the South (he pretends he is, even though he was transported to the south instead of heading to the east part of HLM)8) The Head of the South school finally shows up and is a good guy, who determines CF is the prodigy genius that set off the "Test" formation with high marks when he first stepped into their sectionblah gonna try to speed up summaries. I'm not sure whats too much9) Head Elder (WHo's aura is Half Martial Emperor strength) of the South school of Cyanwood notes CF is "the hope of the South School" and genuinely works to help him for the entrance to Syanwood Mountain exams and placement. 10) CF learns the 4 areas of Cyanwood, South was the most famous, but has become the weakest.11) CF and Elder make progress on tests the original old Head left (he was super famous, but school degraded after he passed, lonnnnng time ago)12) Neighboring Clan sect called Ascension was bound to assist South School if someone can pass the test and obtain the treasure at top of the Temple, which the old dead South School head made in the Ascension's territory.13) after much resistance and denial by current leaders of the clan, CF beats the crap of guards (this later makes them respect CF and join him later on...will get that that)13b) some competition with a deceitful rival clan called CLoud Thunder Pavilion: CF's beat's their group of disciples and they temporarily join up for competition of clans / schools at ancient lake owned and run by ancient elves18) Competition zone has hundreds of thousands of applicants on lake territory belonging to and run by Ancient Elves from the Ancient Era. Side part even more difficult than standard test is entering dangerous forbidden zone to activate artifact, which Chu Feng pursues19) CF manages to survive exam and several different ambushes / assassinations. Evades the senses of Elf Disciple who is only one to also reach Artifact (Ancient Immortal Needle), and he cannot activate it because the needle also senses CF (only one can try to harness energies and activate needle).20) CF manages to hide and after several days of unsuccessful activation, elf prodigy leaves the needle thinking its broken. 21) CF activates needle, which makes brilliant golden show, and thus indicates, first time in 12 years, needle is activated and, first time in even longer time, a human has successfully activated needle (usually elves successful and cause a Green light luminate the entire lake).22) Orion Disciple, who got lost and is crap, comes out of lake but everyone thinks he activated needle, so he takes CF's credit and is viewed as a super prodigy for being first human in long time activate needle artifact23) CF tells his South headmaster he had activated needle, but let this Orion brat claim because 1) he's too weak to truly do this level so CF can prove it later and 2) the elves pissed a human beat them so let them target this disciple for a while instead of targeting CF24) CF plan to take revenge in future for this brat to dare claim his achievement,s but use him for now25) head elder then takes CF to another high level clan similar to Orion that has an ancient deal with South School. Clan is called the Ascension Sect26) super famous now-long-dead head of South school had alliance with this sect, and set up a test that would force the clan to re-join South.27) dead famous south head did this, as he knew over time his school would decline because he didnt leave techniques/resources around for general. he left them via tests for "one that is truly worthy".14) CF Ends up having to challenge the Clan Leader's prodigy daughter, because she couldn't get the Object in the Temple herself.15) Chick ends up becoming an ally later, and is 2nd half of a combination Earthen taboo art and, so far, seems to be a +1 to CF's harem of lovers16) CF succeeds in Temple test, Ascension allies itself with South school again, THunder Pavilion ditched South school / CF, but now regret since17) Rivalry with a higher tier clan called Orion Monastery carries over to first stage of Province Wide exam to enter Cyanwood Mountain.17b) CF humiliates the elder of Orion upon arrival to first exam site. Becomes targeted by them, especially the "prodigy" disciplesblah need to speed up this is a lot tedious even with improper grammar to try to shorten comments / typing timeCyanMountain Entrance Exam: Cyan Mountain is the high end power, connected to the smaller 4 cyan schools (North, south, east, west) along with being attempted by all surrounding primary, secondary, and tertiary level clans as they all work to become disciples in this main sections training28) exam is to compete with everyone to identify limited number of hidden / sealed flags. test is optional, but if someone obtains a flag, results in better standing, rewards, getting noticed, better housing / living property, and even techniques. 90 regular flags, 3 higher general flags, and 1 super "commander flag".29) CF already planned to 1) help Bai Rouchon (the new +1 harem who is Ascension sect daughter genius he defeated, then trained with and slowly got to warm up to him and is totally hottie wife #4) and 2) set up the Orion Disciple that took the credit of CF activating the artifact at the Elves lake30) CF actually detects and finds the Command flag extremely early, so he hides the location, goes to help Bai Rouchon, then baits Yuan Qing (Orion Monastery disciple that took his credit).31) easily and quickly traps Yuan Qing, beats the crap out of him to cause pain and knock him out, heals him while he's knocked out32) CF then claims command flag, but leaves Yuan Qing's unconcious body on the location so that he looks like he got the Super Flag and also take credit33) all this setup so that CF plans to expose the brat and take everything away in the future with most extreme humiliation34) after Flag Hunt, CF works to join Divisions aka sub-groups / clubs formed within the mountain. Ascension Sect wants OP CF, but wont take the rest of his school's followers cuz south is viewed as garbage. they only ask him because the CLan Elder asked them to be kind to CF35) CF rejects the clan, Bai Rouchon also abandons them because she is waifoo for CF, 36) CF forms his own group after disiplining the "one division from south that is garbage". names his group "Asura Division"37) CF partakes in missions with Bai Rouchon to increase influence and reputation of his Asura Division, discovers some secrets resulting in treasures, resulting in more breakthroughs.38) CF's group gets targeted by multiple enemies. Ascension's division in the mountain pissed he didnt join + stole their leaders genius daughter Bai Rouchon so their head confronts CF but he realizes quickly just from exhange of glance that CF would beat him despite being lower ranks cultivation wise39) Orion Monastery also targets CF's Asura camp. First they get a lower clan that works for them to destory their groups Sign and Doors, then they confront in person after CF beats the crap out of them and harasses them.40) This leads to Yuan Qing brat getting involved because he joined the #1 division group since he's "famous" for both the artifact activation and the commander flag achievements (set up by CF who really did these)*Final stages of CF Finally planning to now expose Yuan Qing brat as one who falsely claimed CF's achievements, while also ruining reputation of the Orion Monastery, and make himself known as the true genius behind the achievments*41) CF insults and bates Yuan Qing and Orion division disciple head, as well as the entire sect, into agreeing into signing for a Battle to the Death agreement (deaths not normally allowed on Cyan Mountain except when approved by elders via this agreement, with a high end elder as witness)42) CF defeats lead, then calls out Yuan Qing and the Orion Monastery, saying he did all those achievments43) by insulting the elders and yuan qing he gets 5 of the elders to promise that if he proves he alone accomplished these things, those elders would not only denounce yuan qing, but also commit suicide44) This entire event happens with the death battle in front of the same lake of the artifact. he did this so his "proof" is to re-activate the artifact, which is at the most dangerous time of the year. The original exam happened when the artifact/energies of the lake were in a weak state / environment.45) CF successfully reactivates the needle, again getting another breakthrough form the energy, proves he did all this, causes all the entire Orion Monastery to lose face / become ruined, have the 5 elders who were all Half Martial Emperor commit suicide, as well as Yuan Qing commit suicide**Current translated chapters up to 1197 as of 12/29/2016**46) CF claims the rewards from the events, including access to earthen taboo art named Firmament SHield, which he suspects is related to his Firmament Slash earthen taboo, but is way harder to learn and no one has truly learned 100%.at this point, CF power level is Rank 4 Martial King, meaning with his double power ups from putting THunder armor on and Thunder wings, he is rank 6, so he can fight rank 8/9 martial kings and maybe rank 1 "half emperors" if he goes all out?As for future stuff that hasnt been translated to english yet here on Wuxiaworld (there are actually almost 3,000 chapters in the real novel):47) CF joins the high end elder who is part of the potions / elixir department cuz that Manager Elder had helped CF many times before hand.48) the Cyanwood Mountain Head recognizes CF is the true genius everyone should focus on nurturing. he explains this to one of his top 2 disciples who, under him, are the next 2 highest people in the entire mountain. he hints only one of the two will succeed him in becoming future headmaster, and whoever it is should get CF as their disciple. He feels the vicious disciple that runs the Punishment Department is better suited than the kind disciple, due to the need to make hard decisions for the Mountains survival. However, CF rejects their invitation due to his nature of being loyal to those who help him (the potion elder), but this obviously pisses off the punishment group who will make things difficult for CF going forward 49) chapters follow with CF opening up his group to people to try to join now that everyone wants to follow CF cuz he's shown to be a super genius50) CF also later starts to learn the art of refining (typical skill in Wuxia type novels). So he learns and competes with others in the potion department on how to make various medicines and pills51) Power rate increase is very slow during entire Cyanwood arc. He reached rank 2 MK (martial King) first time he activate artifact, reached rank 3 when he helped Bai Rouchon find secret resources from map, then Reached Rank 4 when he reactivated artifact to prove to everyone he was the true genius, not Yuan Qing52) for future power growth, CF doesnt even reach rank 6 Martial King until chapter 1377, and current chapter translated is only Chapter 1197.52b) CF is able to achieve, with his power ups, rank 7 around chapter 1397, which allows him to challenge rank 1 Half Martial Emperor53) more details come out about Eggy's royal / esteemed status after conflicts with Bai Rouchon's world spirits 54) Much of the thousands of chapters explore CF expanding and learning Formations and spiritual power, which many readers seem to like, despite the fact CF's cultivation rate slows down as by my notes above, showing how many chapters between rank ups55) all kinds of rivalries as CF moves up the social ladder. The #1 genius on the top list he begins to confront around chapter 1247, after Eggy overpowered other people / spirits that were Rank 8 despite Eggy being Rank 5 power56) believe cyanwood arc ends around 1290 chapter, followed by Sima Village event, then Lost Bamboo area, which is the area the Gold Cloak specialist CF has been trying to reach. The one that created the Ice Phoenix egg over 500 years.
@Chanmanm8 Can you also tell me if Chu Feng found the cultivating resources he was initially looking for in the cyanwood mountain? Also is the Firmament Shield really related to his Firmament Slash? Thank you for providing me with answers.
