Paragon of Sin

Chapter 625 - 620: Three Oaths & History

ellar Region. They combined the other Solar Stars, gathered hundreds more from outside, and merged it with their own Solar Star. It was ambitious, too ambitious.

The act itself caused all sorts of issues to arise, and many Ascended died just during the merging process, let alone the number of Realmlords, Timelords, and Starlords. Still, the Imperial Clan at the time refused to settle, and proceeded despite the tearful pleas of others. To them, they were doing it for a better future.

The Ascended of that time worked themselves ragged, and after several centuries, the greatest formation in the Stellar Region was finally completed! The Mystic Radiance Belt ’s construction had even more sacrifices, especially those Ascended of the Imperial Clan, and it had succeeded, yet their tireless efforts brought scorn and hatred instead!

They had worked others like slaves imperiously, forced them to give up their lives for their ambitions despite the pleas, and the other experts soon banded together, using this moment of abject weakness to fight back! The Imperial Clan was hard-pressed, and their allies split, even their greatest ally, the Lin Clan, had fragmented internally.

One half established themselves as the Elemental Jade Sect, and the other half stayed loyal to the Imperial Clan, gambling their continued survival, but it didn ’t pay dividends as they had thought. The Imperial Clan was utterly devastated, massacred alongside their allies, and hunted down like dogs.

In history, it was said they were pushed to extinction due to their warmongering ways, strict and militaristic rule, and the unfair demands for the lives of others. They were branded as vile and evil, yet the Mystic Radiance Belt wasn ’t tainted, becoming the holistic object that defined the heroic intentions of those sacrificed.

The Lin Clan of the Elemental Jade Sect became a leading power, and quickly rose as one of the greatest forces within the starfield! With the Mystic Radiance Belt, the quality of essence and resources rose by several dozen notches, elevating cultivators ’ limits to an incredible peak!

The contention of false and genuine Ascended was born after this explosive boon of the cultivation civilization. Those who ’failed ’ to enter the Mystic Ascendant Realm had very short-life spans and were unable to harness the full might of mysticism. While those who ’succeeded ’ could live for ten thousand years and were unquestionably more powerful. This, of course, was a natural controversy amongst any cultivation civilization that reached that point, especially when no cultivator fully understood the realm itself.

But the Lin Clan ’s growth wasn ’t without issues. The civil conflicts of the starfield rose without a true leader, and war had begun. The entire starfield was ravaged and sent into chaos. Trillions died and an uncountable number suffered the effects of remaining alive.

There were many rulers that ambitiously rose up in these disastrous times, thrived with their might and then fell to their demise, unable to hold onto the reins of the starfield. It was simply too vast, too rich in resources, and it was hard to be the ”strongest ” clan or force. The chaos only grew with each passing year, but the Mystic Radiance Belt provided an environment where the cultivation civilization was unable to decline.

The environment just grew richer and richer despite the deaths of innumerable experts and talents, so more replaced them as they passed.

To survive this, the Lin Clan that led the Elemental Jade Sect, had to establish bound-by-oath alliances that acceded territories and guaranteed certain assurances. They weren ’t the only force to do so. There were thousands. But the vast majority of these forces fell and vanished, unable to remain united in the chaos.

This only ended eight thousand years later, when the Tian Clan gave birth to the first Earthly Saint of the starfield. The power of an Earthly Saint was unheard of, unimaginable, and unable to be resisted. It was a chasm that formed an unfathomable divide.

There was no formation, no multi-planetary array, no gathering of expert cultivators to form united armies that could stand against an Earthly Saint. The Tian Clan swept the entire world with imperious might, and rose as the Imperial Clan of the starfield, changing its name to the Aeternal Sky Starfield.

The current system was slowly formed, territories were distributed, Domains established, and soon with time, more Earthly Saints were born, yet the Tian Clan was unmovable from their throne.

The third Earthly Saint of the starfield, born from the Liu Clan, fought for the right to rule, yet their Earthly Saint suffered utter defeat. The difference in strength was absolutely earth-shattering! The Earthly Saint was thus sealed away, kept imprisoned and tortured as a punishment and a way as repentance to ensure the Tian Clan didn ’t wipe them out. It also served as a constant reminder that led to the Tian Clan ’s uncontested rule for the next few thousands of years.

And then he arrived and everything changed…

The King of Everlore.

In the Elementus Domain, on the deck of a Voidship, Lin Xianxei and Lin Ming faced each other while maintaining the lotus position. Lin Xianxei had just finished explaining the history of the Aeternal Sky Starfield, at least a relatively brief, non-complex version of it.

Lin Ming ’s eyebrows furrowed deeply as he digested all this information. He couldn ’t help but ask after a long time, ”You ’re part of the Lin Clan? The founder of the Jade Elemental Sect? ”

Lin Xianxei inhaled deeply and subsequently nodded, ”I am. ” Her words made Lin Ming ’s mind birth so many more questions. Fortunately, Lin Xianxei hadn ’t finished. She continued, ”My Lin Clan had made many concessions to the special existences that remained independent in our territory. We swore to always give them a set percentage of territory, rich in resources relative to what we possess as long as we are in charge. What we didn ’t realize was the value of territory and resources to grow, and what we would be left with was utterly embarrassing. The degree of issues we have with resources and finances are outrageous in comparison to any other force. ”

Lin Ming ’s frown deepened, ”The True Element Sect? ”

Lin Xianxei sighed with sadness, ”It was our attempt to bypass the oath. Over seven thousand years ago, the King of Everlore arrived alongside his entourage. One of them was a Mystic Ascendant by the name of Han Xei, and he established the Elemental Heaven Pavilion. You should know him well enough. An agreement was forged between the two, and the True Element Sect was born as a merger. We no longer led the sect, and we gave it to Han Xei and his lineage. ”

”What happened? ”

”Those powers didn ’t accept it. They refused to accept anyone but the Lin Clan ruling the Domain. If they allowed it to happen, they ’d be forced to suffer at the hands of the Imperial Clan, either kicked out or worse, losing their territory, resources, and independence. Just like we had agreements with them, the Imperial Clan had an oath with the Lin Bloodline that extended to them as long as we remain leaders of the sect.

…Those powers were willing to wage war against the sect to keep the Lin Clan as the leader and they did just that. ”

”They won? ”

”….They won. ”
