After Xue Ziye left, Lan Fengjin threatened, "Little Murong, Ziye is not someone to be trifled with. If she finds out the truth, then you will have a tough life ahead of you."
Murong Daren was a bit scared as well. He whispered, "Instructor, I was wrong. Don't tell Ziye, I will be honest in the future."
They all went to pick their own rooms. After a simple cleaning up, they were called to the hall by Lan Fengjin.
Lan Fengjin said, "Qin Yun, you have to hold onto the Magic Core Xuan Bead. This is the key to completing your first test!"
Qin Yun took out the transparent Bead and nodded.
Lan Fengjin continued, "Okay, you guys agree on a plan of attack. You have to cooperate well. You guys discuss this first and I'll listen at the side. Then, I'll give you all my suggestions."
Qin Yun looked at Xue Ziye and said, "Ziye, what type of attack are you skilled in? Or perhaps there is some special martial skill, can you tell me?"
"Huo Zhong and Murong Daren are both my friends, I am more familiar with them! I need to have a rough understanding of your strength before I can make any arrangements. You have the cultivation of the 8th level Martial Body realm and you are the strongest within our group."
Xue Ziye's expression remained calm and cold. She nodded her head and said: "I specialize in close combat and use fire attribute internal force. Weapons are a pair of scythes!"
She took out two black scythes. They looked very rough but the blades were very sharp.
She lightly shouted and forcefully waved the scythe in her left hand, causing the blade's head to fly out. However, the handle was still in her hand and it was connected to a black steel wire that flew out.
"Withdraw!" Xue Ziye commanded and the blade quickly returned to her.
Qin Yun and company felt chills run down their spines. If they were to be stabbed in the neck by the sharp scythe, their heads would roll on the ground.
"Very powerful!" After a moment of surprise, Qin Yun exclaimed with a smile.
He took out his Giant King Spirit Hammer and Spirit Essence Saber and said: "I can fight in close range, this is my forging hammer! This slightly smaller blade is a saber that i can use mental energy to control to make it fly and attack from a distance."
Murong Daren took out his fan and said, "I'm good at attacking from afar and my fan can release a special beast martial spirit force. I call it the Sky Breaking Slash and it can easily cut through hard objects."
Huo Zhong took out a long rod, smiled and said, "I'm good at close combat and have a lot of strength. If the demonic beasts are suppressed by you, I can kill them with a swing of my staff."
Xue Ziye had a rough understanding of Qin Yun and company's strength. She nodded slightly.
They were all on the same side now and if the entire team achieved good results, they would also be rewarded handsomely.
"Oh right, I can also craft talismans. I will make talismans to protect you during these two days." Qin Yun added.
When Lan Fengjin heard this, her beautiful eyes lit up as she revealed a faint smile. She knew that Qin Yun's capability. With him the chance of her team winning is now the highest!! When the team's results are good, she would also be rewarded.
Following that, Qin Yun began discussing various tactics with Huo Zhong and company.
Xue Ziye, Murong Daren and Huo Zhong were stunned when they heard this. This was because Qin Yun had rich combat experience with magical beasts. He had a deep understanding of them and gave them several examples of battles. It made their souls tremble.
After an hour of lecturing, Qin Yun felt that it was about time. He said, "We still do not know the specific situation regarding Blue Spirit Star Palace. Right now, all we can do is first understand each other and then we can work together to deal with magical beasts."
Lan Fengjin nodded in admiration. "Qin Yun, you are a qualified captain! When I met you in the first town, I really underestimated you."
"Sister Lan, you only took me in as your student because of your luck! You actually want to extort me for a storage bracelet, hmph!!" Qin Yun said unhappily.
"I did all of this to let them know that you are an Inscription Master, so that they won't look down on you. As you can see later, Xiao Yang Long, a young Martial Dao cultivator, was unable to defeat you, a Inscription Master." Lan Fengjin laughed coquettishly.
Only now did they know that Qin Yun and Lan Fengjin had known each other for a long time.
Qin Yun said, "You should do what you need to do. I'm going to craft the talismans. I have made mid-grade Body Securing Talismans. If they are able to last two or three seconds against a Class 9 Magical Beast, then it would be easy to stop a Class 8 Magical Beast."
Lan Fengjin followed behind Qin Yun and said with a smile, "I'll help you too. mentor must do something!"
Murong Daren rubbed his chin and looked at the two of them with admiration. He sighed and said, "Brother Yun is so amazing. You can even take care of this mysterious female tiger from the Saing Palace."
"Don't spout nonsense!" Huo Zhong patted Murong Daren and said with a smile.
"I'm going back to my room!" Xue Ziye was in a hurry to check her storage bag before hurriedly entering her room.
Lan Fengjin was an Inscription Master and knew how to craft talismans. Now, she was helping Qin Yun smelt the animal bone into talisman paper.
In this way, Qin Yun only needed to carve spirit marks.
"It's good to have an assistant!" Qin Yun said with a sigh as he carved the Body Securing Talisman.
"Hmph, I, a young female martial artist at the Martial Dao Realm and a Senior Inscriptionist, actually have to do odd jobs for you!!" Lan Fengjin humphed and said.
Qin Yun looked at Lan Fengjin's blue clothes and said with a smile, "Sister Lan, you look too feminine when you wear the clothes from Blue Spirit Star Palace. This doesn't seem like you."
"Scram, I am a woman to begin with!" Lan Fengjin rolled her eyes at him.
Qin Yun could also tell Lan Fengjin's intentions. She most likely wanted to learn his high-grade spirit marks.
The Blue Spirit Star Palace had declined and had been forced to hide here by the other sects. It was because of the fact that they were too far behind the other powers in terms of the number of powerful inscriptions. This prevented them from catching up with the strength of other powers' overall equipment strength.
"Sister Lan, how much do you know about Immortal Graveyard?" Qin Yun had not forgotten about the matter of the grand preceptor elder sister. He had always felt that Xi Qieru's gentleness towards the Immortal Graveyard had a great deal to do with it.
Lan Fengjin sighed lightly, "I don't know too much about it. I only know that Ancestor Lan Xiao has some connections with the Immortal Graveyard. His unique Star Yang Martial Arts was inspired by the Immortal Graveyard."
Qin Yun was alarmed as he heard that. He also thought of many things.
The formation that Lan Xiao had left on the Soul Guiding Star Peak helped him obtain the Dark Sun Martial Spirit. It was very likely that Lan Xiao had obtained it from the Immortal Graveyard.
The Dark Sun represented the Yin, the ten thousand star tomb because the Dark sun martial spirit came from a huge black hole. That black hole could swallow any star and was the final resting place for all the stars and the sun.
"The Nine Yang Divine Spirit and the Nine Yin Spirit are definitely related to the Immortal Graveyard. Just what kind of background does Grand Preceptor elder sister have?" Qin Yun's mind was filled with countless thoughts as he thought back to the past.
Lan Fengjin continued, "In the past, Grandmaster Lan Xiao controlled many powerful mysterious inscriptions that allowed our Blue Spirit Star Palace to become extremely powerful. However, in order to grasp those mysterious inscriptions, one must possess a certain level of talent. In order to detect talent, later on, there was the Inscriptions Sect's exam. Only by passing the exam could one learn those Mysterious inscriptions."
"Over the years, fewer and fewer disciples have been able to pass the trial. Then, the mysterious inscriptions were lost and our Blue Spirit Star Palace fell." Lan Fengjin sighed helplessly.
Qin Yun had a better understanding of the situation of the Inscription Gate. It was an extremely dangerous test and there had been many geniuses who had died in it over the years.
"Is the mysterious inscriptions of the Inscription Sect really related to the Immortal Graveyard?" Qin Yun asked again.
Lan Fengjin quickly replied, "Of course! Legend has it that in the Immortal Graveyard, there was a very strong barrier. In order to break that barrier, Grandmaster Lan Xiao had studied it for many years and learned many inscriptions. However, those mysterious inscriptions are all very strange and dangerous. If one's mind isn't strong enough, it's very easy for those mysterious inscriptions to disturb one's mind, which could lead to one's cultivation going berserk and then dying."
Qin Yun thought of the Immortal Graveyard Diagram. It was a very strange item. It might require a large amount of knowledge on the inscription in order to decipher the map and obtain the true map.
"Carefully inscribe lines, don't think too much about it." Lan Fengjin could tell that Qin Yun was interested in the Inscription Gate and hurriedly changed the topic.
Although she knew that Qin Yun was very strong, she did not wish for him to participate in the trials of the Inscription Gate.
With Lan Fengjin's help, Qin Yun's speed of refining middle-grade bone talismans had greatly increased. In three days, he had produced forty of them.
Huo Zhong, Murong Daren and Xue Ziye all received ten pieces. This was more than enough for them to protect themselves.
"We'll be gathering tomorrow morning. Ziye, I'll refine a set of light inscription equipment for you overnight. It can heal your injuries." Qin Yun said.
"Thank you but I don't need it. I have my own ways of healing my wounds." Xue Ziye was secretly happy when he received the ten bone talismans. It could be said that these were the best talismans she had ever obtained.
She always hid her emotions and didn't want others to know about the change in her emotions. That was why her expression was always so calm.
The next morning, Lan Fengjin brought Qin Yun and company to the training grounds in the center of the Heaven's Pride Academy.
They had received a shocking piece of news: Xiao Yanglong had actually returned. It was the Palace Master of Blue Spirit West Palace who showed up and told that he has to be allowed into the Heaven's Pride Academy.
"Everyone, you have to be careful. People like Xiao Yanglong and Sun Jinhao definitely won't let us off so easily." Lan Fengjin said softly to Qin Yun and company.
Qin Yun and company nodded.
After all the instructors and students had gathered, they left the Star Xuan Wu Academy together. Accompanying them on the road were the three vice principals of the Xuan Level Martial School and Dean Bai also wanted to follow them, along with Du Gui and a few other teachers.
If the students from the Heaven's Pride Academy were unable to deal with the magical beasts outside the Blue Spirit Star Palace, then they, the cultivators of the Martial Dao Realm, would attack.
The reason why so many cultivators had followed them was to ensure that the students would not be attacked by spirit beasts.
On the way, Qin Yun came across Xiao Yanglong's eyes, which were filled with killing intent. It made him feel extremely disgusted.
Xiao Yanglong was not a threat to Qin Yun because he could not attack him directly. On the other hand, those students at the eighth level Martial Body realm had the chance to fight.
This was what Qin Yun was worried about.
If they were on the battlefield, it would be very dangerous to be surrounded and attacked by a few martial body level 8 martial artists. It was extremely likely that they would be killed.
