Chapter 601 - Words of the Deceased Emperor, Robe of the Demon God!
...The House of Gold, the seventh floor...
After the seventh demonic martial beast fell unconscious, Qin Nan entered the hall that had been sealed off for countless years.
At the moment, he was clueless as to the rare phenomenon that the House of Gold was displaying.
Meanwhile, in the hall of the seventh floor, which was only a tenth the size of the first floor, each side of the hall was lined with candlesticks with burning blue flames, lighting up the dim hall like a ghost town.
Qin Nan’s eyes widened all of a sudden.
At the center of the hall stood a cross made of skeletons, and a black robe was hung on it.
Not a single trace of dust could be seen on the robe, but there was nothing extraordinary about it either, as if it were only a normal piece of clothing.
However, Qin Nan’s left eye of the Divine God of Battle was able to sense a terrifying force within the robe.
The force was more terrifying than a Sacred Weapon!
Could it be...a half-Monarch Weapon?
A shocking thought crossed Qin Nan’s mind, leaving him in utter astonishment.
A half-Monarch Weapon!
In comparison, the entire White Tiger City was only a half-Monarch Weapon!
“That doesn’t sound right!” Qin Nan immediately collected his thoughts and mumbled, “This is not a half-Monarch Weapon. The power of this robe is still too weak compared to the White Tiger City…”
Before he could finish, a rare occurrence took place. The robe suddenly became alive and flew toward Qin Nan.
The robe suddenly exploded and transformed into countless black figures that devoured Qin Nan’s figure instantly like ghosts from the ancient abyss.
In the blink of an eye, Qin Nan’s clothing was replaced with a pitch-black robe that had a crimson cloak attached to it.
At that instant, an indescribably frightening aura was emitted into the sky from Qin Nan’s body. Countless dark crimson glows were fired into the sky from the robe as if it had transformed into an armor plate!
Currently, Qin Nan looked like a Demon God from the Nine Heavens who had just descended upon the world!
The Weapon Spirit of the House of Gold was awakened at that instant, uttering a dragon-like cry, which showed no sign of anger or fear, but rather a hint of surprise!
Qin Nan was stunned seeing this.
He could clearly sense an indescribable force rising within his body, which was absolutely rageful, imperious, and overwhelming, as if he could destroy anything within the Heavens and Earth.
If Qin Nan’s strength was on par with half-Martial Highness Realm previously...
His strength now was equivalent to the third-layer Martial Highness Realm!
“It’s time for my Battle Robe to be passed down to the younger generation!” At that moment, an imperious voice exploded within Qin Nan’s mind, “This robe is known as the Demon God’s Robe! It was once a Monarch Weapon! However, but it was severely damaged while it accompanied me through countless battles, thus losing its power! I hope its successor can take care of it preciously, and restore its glory!”
Qin Nan felt a great pain from his Divine Sense. The voice almost caused his brain to explode.
He would completely lose his consciousness had it not been for the resistance developed after he experienced the torture from the roars from the left eye of the Divine God of Battle in the past.
That being said, it still took Qin Nan a few moments to recover.
“Demon God’s Robe? Once a Monarch Weapon? And judging by the tone...”Qin Nan frowned as he pondered, before he immediately reached a conclusion.
Elder Kong had mentioned that the Deceased Emperor of the Sky-Scorching Ancient Kingdom was the only person in history to enter the seventh floor.
So this Demon God’s Robe was left here by the Deceased Emperor!
“Senior, I never thought I would find something you’d left here!” Qin Nan said to himself, before speaking in a firm tone, “However….don’t you worry. Now that the Demon God’s Robe is following me, I will surely restore its glory!”
This Demon God's Robe was priceless. It was all luck for him to acquire it, thus if he did have the chance, he would definitely fulfill the Deceased Emperor’s request by restoring the robe’s power.
“Let’s take a look at the Demon God's Robe now!”
Qin Nan calmed his thoughts, while his eyes burned violently.
This was the Demon God's Robe! It was once a Monarch Weapon!
Even though it was currently heavily damaged, its power was still stronger than a Sacred Weapon!
“I’ve already merged with the Demon God's Robe. I can easily control it with a single thought. However, the force of the Martial Highness Realm is still not enough in my body. I won’t be able to fully unleash its power…” Qin Nan came to a realization after the Demon God's Robe showed no reaction when he tried to control it.
“Such a pity that I wouldn’t be able to witness the Demon God's Robe’s power now! I can’t wait to see the strength it displays when I’m able to control it!”
Qin Nan shook his head. His eyes were filled with a hint of anticipation.
Even though he was not fond of using artifacts in his battles, he was quite interested in this Demon God's Robe as it was a cloth he could easily put on himself, thus it did not matter much.
“Time to head out.”
Qin Nan wore a smile on his face. He was feeling incredibly pleasant after finding the Demon God's Robe.
As he exited the House of Gold, Elder Kong’s figure landed before him following a whoosh.
“Duan Qing, what did you find on the seventh floor?” Elder Kong blurted out with a slight pant, but his eyes widened as he saw the black robe Qin Nan was wearing, “This robe, could it be the Demon God's Robe that followed the Deceased Emperor into battle?”
Qin Nan was startled as he did not think that Elder Kong would be able to tell its identity even though it was not emitting any energy. He said with a smile, “Elder Kong has a pair of sharp eyes.”
“Demon God's Robe, it’s really the Demon God's Robe…”
Elder Kong ignored Qin Nan’s words and mumbled to himself, before he turned around and cast a complicated look at Qin Nan, “As you’ve acquired the Demon God’s Robe, you’ve obtained the Deceased Emperor’s approval! Oh Duan Qing, please don’t let me down at the Heaven-Worshipping Feast.”
Upon saying this, Elder Kong gave Qin Nan a thoughtful look.
Since Duan Qing had retrieved the Demon God’s Robe, didn’t that imply that the mysterious treasure within the Statue of the Deceased Emperor would show itself this time too?
“Heaven-Worshipping Feast?” Qin Nan was surprised, “Is Elder Kong going to the Heaven-Worshipping Feast too?”
Qin Nan had no idea that this Elder Kong standing in front of him was the Sky-Scorching Emperor, who would be hosting the Heaven-Worshipping Feast!
“Of course,” Elder Kong smiled and waved his hand, “You should leave now since you’re done here. By the way, it’s better not to tell anyone that you’ve obtained the Demon God’s Robe.”
Qin Nan nodded his head and prepared to leave, but he suddenly stopped as a thought crossed his mind. He calmly said, “Elder Kong, when I said I had a chance to enter the seventh floor, I actually meant it. I hope Elder Kong won’t take it wrongly—I wasn’t being full of myself, I was only stating the truth.”
After saying this, Qin Nan left the place.
Elder Kong—or rather the Sky-Scorching Emperor—was left with a blank expression.
A moment later, the Sky-Scorching Emperor collected his thoughts and was unsure whether to laugh or cry. This kid harbors bitter resentment...but I do like his personalities!
The Sky-Scorching Emperor’s eyes flickered with excitement, before his figure vanished following a kick to the ground.
