Chapter 1796: Founding Ceremony (Three)
The people from the Dong and Huo families behaved like this because they all suspected that the patriarch of the Tian Yuan clan was an Overgod. Without a single doubt, the entire provincial city would belong to the Overgod now that he had come to the Dong’an province and founded a clan in the provincial city. Even the royal capital would not interfere with this matter, so they naturally did not dare to offend the Tian Yuan clan.
“The patriarch of the Yubing clan has come to congratulate the Tian Yuan clan on its founding…” Just when all the clans in the city had gathered, a loud voice suddenly rang out from outside.
The message stunned all the people gathered within the hall. Surprise filled their faces soon afterwards.
“What!? People from the Yubing clan of the Frigid Snow province have come? They’ve even come to congratulate the Tian Yuan clan on its founding…”
“The patriarch of the Yubing clan has actually come personally. Am I hallucinating? The Yubing clan is an organisation that possesses an Overgod…”
“Looks like the background of the Tian Yuan clan is far greater than we have ever imagined. Otherwise, why would the Yubing clan from one of the five great provincial cities send people here?”
The people from the powerful clans all murmured to themselves inside.
However, before long, the following message utterly stunned the ancestors of the various clans again. They all stared at the entrance dumbfounded.
“The patriarch of the Guhun family has arrived…”
“The patriarch of the Feng family has arrived…”
“The patriarch of the You family has come…”
Aside from the Swordseeking province, the four other clans with Overgods among the five great provincial cities had all sent important figures with great gifts to congratulate the Tian Yuan clan on its founding.
Moreover, these important figures were all the patriarchs of their clans.
With just that, all the people from the provincial city of the Dong’an province struggled to remain calm. Just a founding ceremony of the Tian Yuan clan had attracted the congratulations from four organisations with Overgods. Just what kind of prestige did the Tian Yuan clan possess in the Divine Kingdom of Pingtian? After all, it was only founded recently and was mostly composed of people from the Mo clan and the Ando clan.
The people of the Wayner clan sat at the very back of the hall. They had been seated there as it meant that they were one of the worst clans present. There were even many other clans who would treat the Wayner clan with disdain.
A total of four people had come from the Wayner clan. They were the two Gods, Wayner Cong and Wayner Xuanguan, their Overgod, Wayner Yan, and their late Deity patriarch, Wayner Ye.
Wayner Yan was in no hurry to reveal his strength, so he erased his presence and hid it away. He sat towards the back quietly, so he only seemed like a Deity on the surface.
At this moment, even Wayner Yan felt rather surprised when he discovered that four other clans with Overgods had sent important figures like their patriarchs to take part in the Tian Yuan clan’s founding ceremony.
However, Wayner Yan began to smile profoundly soon afterwards. He thought to himself, “Before long, our Wayner clan will be able to enjoy treatment like this as well. I will make the Wayner clan glorious and proud.”
The patriarchs of the Yubing clan, Guhun clan, Feng family, and You family walked side-by-side as they entered the hall together. They smiled as they conversed with Mo Ling and Ando Fu, who had come forth to receive them. They spoke politely and dismissed any arrogance that they might have possessed as patriarchs of clans with Overgods.
This was because they had all come to visit under their ancestors’ orders. They understood the power of the Tian Yuan clan. It was an existence that could never be provoked.
After everyone had arrived, Jian Chen finally entered the hall in white clothes. Beside him was Shangguan Mu’er in a purple dress. She held onto Jian Chen’s arm gently as she made her way towards the seat at the very front with Jian Chen.
At that moment, the entire hall fell silent. Whether it was the Gods of the Dong’an province or the patriarchs of the four clans with Overgods, they all held their breaths as they stared at Jian Chen.
Although Shangguan Mu’er was so pretty that she could be described as prettier than a goddess, clearly, no one was in the mood to pay any attention to her. What everyone cared for the most and paid the most attention to was Jian Chen, who possessed the strength of an Overgod.
This was because they understood that the entire provincial city would be in the young man’s hands from this day onwards.
Jian Chen and Shangguan Mu’er made their way to the throne that represented the patriarch’s seat, and they sat down slowly. Jian Chen smiled plainly. He glanced past everyone below and clasped his hands. He said, “I’m Jian Chen, and this is my beloved wife, Shangguan Mu’er. Thank you all for coming…”
“Hahaha, the journey was a little long, so I hope that I’m not late. The commander of the Royal Divine Army of the Divine Kingdom of Pingtian, Xuan Dou, greets the patriarch of the Tian Yuan clan. I congratulate the Tian Yuan clan on its founding, and I believe that the province will become more and more powerful under the lead of the Tian Yuan clan.”
Before Jian Chen had finished speaking, a rough voice rang out from outside.
A burly, middle-aged man in black robes strode in. He bore a smile, filling him with a sense of friendliness.
“Even the commander of the Royal Divine Army have come. Aside from the divine king and the Grand Imperial Protector, he’s the one with the greatest authority…”
“When Overgods have appeared in other provinces, his majesty the divine king normally only sends God emissaries to congratulate them, yet his majesty has actually sent the commander of the Royal Divine Army for the founding of the Tian Yuan clan…”
“Sir Xuan Dou is a late Overgod. He’s the only one who can hold his ground against Yang Kai in our Divine Kingdom of Pingtian…”
Everyone’s faces changed once again with Xuan Dou’s entry. They all stood up and clasped their fists towards Xuan Dou politely. They were greatly unsettled inside.
Jian Chen saw Xuan Dou, and his eyes immediately narrowed. He immediately stood up and clasped his fist towards Xuan Dou as well, greeting him politely. Xuan Dou’s strength had actually reached late Overgod.
The only thing was that Xuan Dou had not entered Godking Duanmu’s dwelling.
Although quite a few Overgods of the Divine Kingdom of Pingtian had gathered within Godking Duanmu’s dwelling, they only accounted for seventy or eighty percent of the entire kingdom’s Overgods. In reality, there were a few Overgods that did not take part.
“Patriarch, I have come under the orders of his majesty to congratulate you. Please accept this.” With a wave of his hand, ten blocks of high grade divine crystal appeared in the air. Although he was a late Overgod, he did not act snobbishly towards Jian Chen at all.
The sight of ten blocks of high grade divine crystal surprised Jian Chen. This was a great gift and a tremendous amount of wealth to him currently. It had even surpassed what he obtained from Godking Duanmu’s dwelling.
“His majesty is just far too polite. I do hope senior Xuan Dou can thank his majesty for me for his great gifts,” Jian Chen said with clasped fists.
After accepting the ten blocks of divine crystal, the founding ceremony for the Tian Yuan clan began. Jian Chen also declared that the Tian Yuan clan had been founded in the provincial city as the patriarch of the clan.
“Congratulations on the founding of the Tian Yuan clan. From today onwards, our Nanyun clan is willing to abide by anything the patriarch says…” Nanyun Tong stood forwards first. At the same time, he expressed that his Nanyun clan was willing to submit to the Tian Yuan clan.
“Congratulations on the founding of the Tian Yuan clan. Looks like with the Tian Yuan clan, our Dong’an province has become the sixth great province of the Divine Kingdom of Pingtian…”
“Hahaha, I have utter confidence that our Dong’an province will become more and more powerful under the lead of the patriarch…”
A few ancestors of the clans in the provincial city spoke out. Just like the Nanyun clan, they directly expressed their desire to submit to the Tian Yuan clan. As for the other clans, although they did not directly say that they wanted to submit to the Tian Yuan clan, they all expressed their willingness to abide by the control of the Tian Yuan clan and any arrangements they made.
“Patriarch of the Tian Yuan clan, I’ve heard that you weren’t a person of our Dong’an province initially. As a result, I have no objections if you want to found a clan in the provincial city, but if you want to reign supreme and unite all the clans, I, Wayner Yan, cannot allow this.” At this moment, a discordant voice rang out from below.
All the people in the hall immediately became stunned when they heard that. Shock filled their faces. Before everyone, someone had actually stated his objection towards an Overgod so publically. He was simply too bold.
The commander of the Royal Divine Army, Xuan Dou, was slightly stunned as well. He soon looked in Wayner Yan’s direction, and his eyes immediately narrowed. His face became rather strange as well.
