Na Xin’s introduction had scared many warriors, including Fei Lan, Leona, and the warriors from the Raging Flame Star Area. They were surprised a lot because of the profundities of the Agate Star Area.

Before they came here, who could have ever imagined such a strange star area? How could it have almost one hundred extraordinary races like that?

“You guys can live here. This Old Orchid Star is our Giant’s territory at the moment. This star doesn’t have many natural resources, but I think it’s… enough for you.” Na Xin walked to the lake, looking at the warriors who came from his ancestral land while talking seriously, “You can collect all the materials in the Old Orchid Star; we won’t mind it. The Old Orchid Star has many regions we haven’t explored and exploited yet. You guys can work on it later.”

“Does the Old Orchid Star have a divine crystal mine?” asked Ka Tuo.

Starting from the King God Realm, divine crystals became the main items they used to restore their energy. It was also the currency in the Raging Flame Star Area. The divine crystals could be absorbed and turned into different kinds of energy, suitable for warriors of different races. With this characteristic, the divine crystal was popular in any star area, because it was the main assurance for the warrior’s cultivation.

“No, it doesn’t,” Na Xin shook his head, explaining, “At least, we haven’t found one.”

Pausing for a while, Na Xin added, “The Old Orchid Star’s a little bit strange. The gravity will become more dangerous deep underground. Experts of our Giant Tribe can’t endure it more than one thousand meters underground. However, our precursor used to say that there should be something special under the ground of the Old Orchid Star. Especially with the fact that there are more spiritual herbs there. If you’re interested in it, you can try.”

Na Xin smiled, but his eyes didn’t.

Ka Tuo was surprised, rubbing his nose and talking awkwardly, “Never mind, never mind. If you guys don’t dare to explore, it will be impossible for us.”

Na Xin was at the Ethereal God Realm, and his realm was higher than Fei Lan. Perhaps, he was at the Second of the Ethereal God Realm. If this existence didn’t dare to explore the underground, who could?

Fei Lan? Leona? Or Shi Yan?

Ka Tuo forced a smile.

“Your realms were low, and your knowledge of power Upanishad is… shallow. I think it will not be easy for you to live on the surface of the Old Orchid Star. You shouldn’t take any risks.” Na Xin kindly reminded them.

Everybody was reluctant as they nodded, knowing that he just told the truth.

“I think you need to build a city first,” Na Xin pointed at an area, “There’re a lot of good rocks over there. They should be suitable for your city. Yeah, if you need help, I can send two Giants to transport the rock for you. It’s to pay tribute to Shi Yan, for his help in finding our ancestral land.”

“Thank you, precursor,” Shi Yan slightly bent over while smiling, “Then, we will do it.”

The gravity in the Old Orchid Star was scary. In this place, even the ordinary Fantasy Sky Rings were affected. They couldn’t contain heavy objects anymore.

The Giants were tall, and were used to the gravity in this area. There was nothing more suitable than them to transport the heavy rocks.

“I will arrange it. You just need to assign someone to go with us and show what kind of rocks you want.” Na Xin was generous, frankly calling his clansmen.

Shortly, two brawny men of the Giant Clan ran towards them from the big mountain.

“You guys stay here and help our friends to transport some rocks. Just follow them.” Na Xin advised his fellows then smiled, “Our guests here come from pretty far. They will stay with us in the Old Orchid Star, near our mountain. They will be our friends, our neighbors. We will get along well with them.”

“We got it, Tribal Oldie.”

The two Giants looked nice and friendly. They were all at the Original God Realm. They had agreed with their elder without a bit of hesitation.

“You guys will be busy for a while, so I won’t disturb you anymore.” Na Xin smiled and nodded to Shi Yan, then excused himself, walking back to his big mountain.

“Who will go with us?” A muscular Giant shouted. His voice was like the thunderclaps striking people’s eardrums.

Many lower realm warriors tumbled, falling because of his loud voice. They were all perplexed.

The two Giants were at the Original God Realm. While they were talking, their bodies emitted an intimidating aura. Disaster Realm warriors in Shi Yan’s side couldn’t endure such pressure.


“Are there any blacksmiths? Who knows about the special stone materials, step forward!” Shi Yan turned around and shouted.

“Although I’m an alchemist, I know stone materials. Count me.” Jester smiled until his eyes narrowed. He took part in the responsibility on his own initiative.

“Anybody else?” Shi Yan asked again.

There were blacksmiths among the warriors came from the Grace Mainland. However, since their realms were low, they were inferior to Jester, a high-level existence. They didn’t have the guts to show themselves.

“Aren’t you a blacksmith?” Zi Yao was surprised.

“Yes, I am. But, I’m not familiar with rock materials.” Shi Yan smiled. His eyes narrowed as he looked at the clansmen from the Grace Mainland. “Don’t worry about realms. You guys will show which rock materials are suitable to build the city. Whoever works in this field, step out some.”

With his encouragement, an old human at the Nirvana Realm gritted his teeth, walking out of the crowd with his face worried. “Sir, I’m a blacksmith. Although my realm isn’t high, I’ve got an ancient book with great information of rock and stone materials.”

“Alright, you’re in. Anybody else?” Shi Yan nodded. Hesitating for a while, he added. “I will give magical pellets as a reward to you.”

Many people looked touched. They seemed excited, but none of them volunteered. It looked like they weren’t confident at all.

Shi Yan waited for a while but he got no one else. He sighed begrudgingly, talking to the Giants, “Only three of us. Let’s go.”

“Come, climb on our shoulders,” The two muscular Giants squatted down to let Shi Yan, Jester, and that old man get on their shoulders. Then, they strode and ran, making the earth rumble. The two brawny Giants strode fast as if they were flying. Small trees rattled along their way, sending leaves everywhere. Shi Yan’s group sat on the shoulder of the Giants. Looking at the trees collapse like grass under their feet, they somehow felt magical.

The old man was called Li Xiao; he was only at the Nirvana Realm. Under the extreme gravity and the bumpy journey, he paled, his eyes so worried.

After a while, when the Giants stopped, the old man couldn’t hold it anymore and began vomiting.


Swoosh!

Shi Yan lifted Li Xiao and landed in the middle of a crushed stone area. Li Xiao bent his body and threw up, his face ashen.

Although he was at the Nirvana Realm, he hadn’t adapted to the gravity of the Old Orchid Star yet. He staggered, his legs shaking as if he were carrying a whole mountain on his back.

This was a mine around several hundred mu of land, with many collapsed mountains and chips of rock. One of the muscular Giant spoke, his voice sounding like a thunderclap. “This is our quarry we use to build houses. You guys can choose whatever you want.”

Li Xiao was shaken as he spurted out blood under such pressure. He looked so unwell. Shi Yan forced a smile, shaking his head. He raised his hand, releasing a brilliant starlight that covered Li Xiao entirely.

Li Xiao was shrouded in the starlight, which separated him from the extreme gravity and the thundering voice. He finally got some color back on his face.

Jester frowned, throwing him a pellet. “Swallow it.”

Li Xiao was baffled, looking at Shi Yan.

“Eat it. He won’t harm you,” Shi Yan nodded and smiled.

Only then did Li Xiao take the pellet. Immediately, a flow of medicinal efficacy, which he considered immense, diffused in his body. The damage done to his body was healed rapidly, as his face started glowing with health. Shortly after, he became full of spirit.

Li Xiao checked his condition for a while. He was thrilled, kneeling and bowing to Jester, continually thanking him. To Jester, the lowest level pellet he refined was at least a level 6 or 7 Sacred Grade. As Li Xiao was only at the Nirvana Realm, that pellet was a priceless treasure to his cultivation.

He could feel his energy leap up several times with only a pellet Jester had just given him. The contaminants and dregs on his body were also filtered.

With the power of this pellet, it was possible to break through one level!

Of course, he was thrilled.

Shi Yan didn’t mind the old man, smiling at a Giant. “What kind of stone material do you use? How to know it’s suitable for your houses?”

“Simple.” A muscular giant grinned, talking, “We hit it. The one that can resist to the last minute under the powerful pressure is the toughest one, and the most suitable material.”

“Oh, really simple,” Shi Yan smiled frankly.

However, inwardly, he didn’t dare to agree with the Giant.

Shi Yan could consider himself an average blacksmith. He had a good knowledge of blacksmithing anyway. The Giant’s method to choose the material, to people who didn’t know how to refine items, was effective indeed. However, different kinds of materials could be fused or blended with each other.

In many cases, weak stone materials could become tougher and better quality material after being refined, even dozens of times more rigid.

As they knew the refining methods, the crude method of the Giants was… simple indeed.

Alchemist Jester frowned, seeming to be a little bit disdainful. “If it were that simple, there would be no alchemist or blacksmith in this world. If it were so, would the weapon made of the toughest material be the most dangerous one? It’s not that simple.”

The Giant wasn’t enraged. He just laughed foolishly. “Our Tribe doesn’t know these things. Also, we don’t pay much attention to it. We’ve done things that way for years. Yeah, we knew that the blacksmiths could refine and forge materials into powerful weapons. But, my tribe doesn’t have a blacksmith.”

Listening to him, Jester and Shi Yan couldn’t comment anything else.

“You guys watch around. When you see the stone you like, call us.” One of the two Giants told them then sat down leisurely by a pile of stone. He dozed off, his face satisfied.

Shi Yan smiled and said nothing more. He turned to Jester and Li Xiao. “We should scatter and find the materials. The stone material is the foundation we will build our city with. It’ll guarantee our future home and homeland. I hope you guys would choose wisely.”

“I will do my best,” Li Xiao took a deep breath, his face stern. He walked towards the area filled with crushed stones. Jester also looked serious while his eyes sparkled continually. He took out a yellowed old book, carefully checking for something.


Chrome Is The New Gold It seemed that he didn’t actually know about types and structures of stone materials. Since he had a good source to refer, he got his confidence.

Although Li Xiao had a low realm, and he wasn’t worth mentioning in Shi Yan and Jester’s eyes, he had special knowledge of stone materials. Unlike Jester, who was using a book, he was knocking and sometimes pounding on the stone, releasing a wisp of energy to sense.

Sometimes he frowned, and at times he smiled.

The style of a master.

Shi Yan observed Li Xiao for a while and gradually eased his mind, thinking that this man could perhaps give him happy surprises.

Shi Yan didn’t know much about materials to build a city. He was good at choosing materials for forging treasures or weapons. The Blacksmith’s Secrets of Success mainly mentioned those materials.

That was why he brought Li Xiao and Jester here to help him choose.

Although the Agate Star Area was vast, and the Old Orchid Star was the exclusive land of the Giant Tribe, it wasn’t safe. Otherwise, the Giant Tribe wouldn’t need to set up layers of barriers outside the mountain.

This meant that Old Orchid Star used to be invaded. Someone had targeted the Giant Tribe.

This immense star area had almost one hundred clans, with countless intimidating existences scattering everywhere. Shi Yan’s fellows were just some low-realm outsiders, their competence limited. If they could have a tough city, it would be a good advantage to their future development.

With this thought, he was earnest about choosing the materials for the city.

He neither watched Jester and Li Xiao nor talked to the two Giants, just frowned while walking in the quarry and releasing his Soul Consciousness to sense something.

Since his Soul Consciousness had space power, although his realm wasn’t high, the coverage of his Soul Consciousness was larger and deeper than the other warriors with higher realms.

Space power Upanishad had such ability.

Flows of his Soul Consciousness shot out like shuttles. Shi Yan had now more ‘eyes’, observing the entire area around him.

“Ah?”

After a long time, he sighed, his eyebrows twitching. He silently flew to the center of the quarry.

With his power at the Original God Realm, he couldn’t travel one thousand miles in just a blink under the tremendous gravity of the Old Orchid Star. He was slowed down a lot.

He got to his target after fifteen minutes.

Standing in the center of the three collapsed mines was a massive chasm, so deep that people couldn’t see its bottom. It seemed to run to the deepest place underground.

A beam of his Soul Consciousness moved to that pitch black hole. However, when his Soul Consciousness reached to an extremely deep place, he felt a wisp of an extraordinary energy…

It seemed to be some kind of a crystal. It was like crystal rock or some special iron. It felt so… wonderful.

The Old Orchid Star was odd with its tremendous gravity, indeed. But, the gravity at the star surface wasn’t the heaviest on this star. The deeper one went underground, the heavier the gravity got. Even the experts of the Giant Tribe didn’t dare to linger, or else, they would get their God Body crushed.

However, there would be something magical in the earth of the Old Orchid Star as it could produce more excellent spiritual herbs. If the warriors could resist the terrifying gravity, they could have a chance to search…

Shi Yan suddenly recalled what Na Xin had told him, and his eyes brightened silently.

Taking a deep breath, he released more beams of Soul Consciousness. He then condensed the wisps of his Soul Consciousness into one big beam, which was purer and sharper. Of course, it could pierce the layers of soil faster.

A flow of combined Soul Consciousness slowly intruded the gloomy, massive pit like an arrow. Shortly, the magical feeling became more intense.

Boom!

His Sea of Consciousness was shaken, as beams of Soul Consciousness in his Sea of Consciousness also trembled. This wonderful feeling multiplied by a hundred times. It was like there were tens of thousands pieces of the same material, as many as the stars in the sky, inlaid in the bottom of the pit.

It was some special matter that could resonate with the Sea of Consciousness, making his Soul Consciousness dart fast like an electric arrow.

A flow of Soul Consciousness was constantly surging in response, which seethed his Sea of Consciousness and shook the soul altar. Shi Yan was frightened. He hastened to retrieve his Soul Consciousness, his face turning strange.

Pondering for a while, Shi Yan found that his beam of Soul Consciousness had pierced more than one thousand meters into the ground. Even Na Xin couldn’t reach this depth for sure.
