Chapter 198: The Birth of a Treasure
In the evening, the sun was setting.
On the ancient road heading toward the Southwest Seaside Forest, a young figure appeared.
It was Ye Xiao.
‘As expected, the spiritual energy in nature is better than the spiritual energy in the city.
No wonder the city has to make a spirit-gathering array.
Although the building materials were good, they also blocked the influx of spiritual energy.
At the same time, it was impossible for humans to hide in the deep mountains and forests to cultivate.
Combining all sorts of factors, the spirit-gathering array was the best choice.
At that moment, although there were few people on the ancient road, it was not an uninhabited place.
From time to time, one or two figures could be seen passing by quickly.
Ye Xiao used the Big Dippers Grand Mystery to scan and knew that there were many people coming.
A natural treasure trove like the Southwest Seaside Forest was filled with treasures.
Walking through the forest, one might have the luck to find some heavenly and earthly treasures.
A few decades-old ginseng, herbs, and the like for example.
Although those things were not very valuable, they could be considered good resources for some warriors with shallow cultivation.
Moreover, if they traversed deeper in the Seaside Forest, it was possible to find even older natural treasures.
Of course, the deeper they went, the more dangerous it was.
There were many star beasts or beastmen hidden in the deep mountains and forests that lacked human habitation.
Due to the many natural treasures there, the human alliance would also collect some resources.
Therefore, they would never wantonly hunt and disturb places to avoid damaging the environment.
Moreover, from a certain point of view, star beasts were also part of the resources.
Their star cores, flesh, skin, fur, and bones were all crucial to the cultivation of the human race.
In order to better manage the Southwest Seaside Forest, the nine provinces alliance used an array to build a huge isolation zone in the forest.
On one hand, it was to prevent the human race from killing and overusing resources.
On the other hand, it was also to prevent the star beasts and beastmen from breaking out.
At the same time, there were martial arts experts at the divine grandmaster rank stationed in the forest to maintain order.
If one wanted to enter, they would have to pass the nine provinces alliances approval.
Many martial artists only searched outside and did not dare to rashly enter.
However, there was no lack of bold individuals who would apply to enter the array.
After all, all the good things were in the inner circle of the Seaside Forest.
It was just that… Life and death were determined by fate, while wealth and honor were determined by heaven.
Could one find a natural treasure, or could one come out after finding it
That was not something that anyone could guarantee.
Ye Xiao was not interested in the things around him.
He released his Divine Intent and discovered that there were humans gathering 12 miles ahead.
It should be the array that the alliance had set up.
With a thought, he executed the Divine Intent technique.
In the blink of an eye, he turned into a gust of wind and disappeared from where he was.
When he reappeared, he had already arrived at that place.
There were quite a lot of people, at least a thousand of them, and it was nighttime.
It was estimated that there were many people who made a living from the resources of the Seaside Forest.
“Everyone, dont squeeze in.
Line up one by one.
“The interior of the Seaside Forest is very dangerous.
Martial artists were not allowed to enter alone.
They are required to find people to form a team.
There has to be a team of more than ten people.
“Moreover, those whose cultivation has not reached Houtian fifth grade or above are not allowed to enter after six oclock in the evening.
You can come back tomorrow.”
A staff member holding a megaphone shouted the rules at the front.
Some of the familiar old foxes had already formed groups of three to five with good relationships and were waiting in line to enter.
Others who did not know the rules were more troublesome.
They stood at the entrance, scratching their ears and cheeks, not knowing what to do for a moment.
Some of the slightly more intelligent ones also began to look for people to form a team.
However, it was not very easy to find because the vast majority of people formed a team.
They really needed to find some teammates.
Their strength was very ordinary.
If the teammates that they found were not strong enough, it was true that there was a possibility that people would die in the Seaside Forest.
That made Ye Xiao recall the scene in his previous life when he was playing games and could not beat a dungeon.
He called for his little friends to form a team at the entrance of the dungeon to clear the map.
However, in order to pay for his medical expenses, he had basically gone to the low-level map to bring people to do job-changing missions, raid dungeons, and accumulate game coins to sell for money.
Now, he did not need to consider that problem.
Just as he was about to use the Big Dippers Grand Mystery to modify the memory of one of the small teams and blend in with them.
An uncle in his forties with a hairstyle that looked like Zhong Kui walked over and said with a smile,
“Young man, do you want to form a team Were from the Jackie Chan hiring company.
There are martial arts experts in the team who can escort you.”
To the capitalists, wherever there was a need, they would be there.
Some hiring companies, seeing the business opportunities there, have gone into the business of bringing people in.
“Thank you, but theres no need.”
The other party seemed to be an old veteran.
Seeing Ye Xiaos intention, he hurriedly said,
“Young man, dont misunderstand.
Were not that kind of hiring company that takes money.
We just want to gather enough people to enter.
“After entering, you can choose to continue to form a team with us.
You can also choose to act alone.”
Ye Xiao did not expect that it would be like that.
That was pretty good, saving him the trouble.
Seeing that he agreed, the other party grinned, revealing two rows of big white teeth that were missing.
“Your cultivation has already reached Houtian fifth grade, right”
Ye Xiao nodded again.
Weve gathered enough people.
The other party brought Ye Xiao to his team.
There were a total of eight men and women inside.
Including the two of them, there were a total of ten people.
It was just right.
It was just enough to meet the official requirements.
“Oh right, whats your name Ill go fill out the registration form.”
Ye Xiao thought for a moment and said,
The other party knew that Ye Xiao was using a fake name.
Although Ye Xiao had already changed his appearance, his foundation was still there and he was still extremely handsome.
How could he be called by such an old-fashioned name
However, it did not matter.
An old veteran like him could easily settle the registration form.
“Alright, Ill go and register.
Also, my name is Huang Tao.
Remember my name so that you dont spill the beans later.”
When he went to register, Ye Xiao glanced at the entire team.
There were a total of three women, and the rest were all men.
The vast majority of them looked to be around 40 years old.
Their cultivation was not very high so most of them were above Houtian fifth grade.
The one with the highest strength was the team leader who had brought him in earlier, Huang Tao.
His strength was Houtian eighth grade.
Therefore, they did not maintain their youthful looks.
The only one who looked relatively young in the team was a girl whose face was covered by a white veil.
It seemed that she intentionally did not want others to see her face.
The other party seemed to have sensed Ye Xiaos gaze, and in the next moment, she swept a glance at Ye Xiao.
That pair of extremely agile eyes slightly turned.
In the next moment, an unbelievably powerful and strange power instantly wrapped around Ye Xiao.
Ye Xiaos heart suddenly trembled.
What a fellow, she was actually a martial arts expert!
That power was a little like spiritual energy, but it was not entirely spiritual energy.
However, although she was very powerful, she was still lacking when facing him, and she was still unable to see through his cultivation.
The expression on Ye Xiaos face did not change at all.
It was as if he had not sensed her strength at all.
Therefore, the girl only glanced at him before moving away.
She looked once again into the depths of the Seaside Forest.
No one knew what she was thinking about.
Before long, Huang Tao walked over with a list in his hand and smiled.
“Alright, we can go in now.”
Everyone followed him and entered the main gate.
Soon, they arrived at the Seaside Forest.
After entering, the girl did not say a word and walked straight away.
It was obvious that Huang Tao had pulled her over at the last minute.
There were four other people.
After informing Huang Tao, they also turned around and left.
It seemed that at that time, there were only four people that Huang Tao brought with him, including himself.
“Young man, are you coming with us Or are you going by yourself If you dont mind, I advise you to come with us because its very dangerous inside, especially at night.”
Ye Xiao shook his head.
“I can go by myself.”
“However, before I leave, theres something I want to ask.
When I came here, I saw that there were quite a number of people here.
Moreover, its already so late, and there are still so many people outside.
“Is there some other reason”
“You dont know”
Huang Tao was a little surprised.
Ye Xiao shook his head again.
“Im not too sure.
This is my first time here.”
“Alright, no wonder youre not sure.
Because recently, in the Seaside Forest, there might be extremely powerful natural treasure appearing.
Thats why there are so many people rushing here.
“Theyre all here to take a chance.”
Ye Xiaos eyes moved slightly.
“What kind of natural treasure is it”
“I dont know about that.
However, even if a natural treasure appears, it basically has nothing to do with people like us.
“That thing must be in the depths of the Seaside Forest.
Thats a place we cant go to.”
“Then do you know where there are flowers in the Seaside Forest Flowers like rock-climbing flowers that absorb a lot of spiritual energy.”
“I do know a little about this.
If you head southeast from this place, its said that someone found a lot of flowers with a lot of spiritual energy there.
“Its said that someone found a lot of flowers there.
“But you have to be careful.
A lot of things have happened there recently.
There seems to be a star beast riot.
My brother-in-laws ex-girlfriend died there a few days ago.”
“Alright, thank you.”
After a simple reply, Ye Xiao bade him farewell and turned around to leave.
Huang Tao could not help but shake his head.
‘The youngsters nowadays are really getting more and more daring.
They dare to barge into the Seaside Forest alone.
We are really old.
