"Our Battle Sword Sect has a territory of a few hundred miles, and a total of three thousand disciples. The peaks of the mountains here are all connected and the disciples reside in wooden houses at the peak. You may choose an empty residence for your own lodging." Lin Shuai led Qin Wentian and pointed at a residence set in the middle of two mountain ramparts. The scenery here was exemplary, and projected a feeling of solitude and quietness, as though it were a place separated from the rest of the world. Mist cloaked the area, giving it the appearance of an abode for immortals to reside in during cultivation.. In one's residence, no one should be able to disturb you at such a time.
"The lodging grounds are completely separated from the training grounds. Look over there, that's the training stage of our Battle Sword Sect. Several of our disciples are usually found sparring or honing their skills there. If there are conflicts among our disciples, the elders normally step in to mediate, but if mediation fails, both parties can apply for the rights to have a duel." Lin Shuai pointed to a vast space with a magnificient training arena built upon it.
Qin Wentian took note of this. Although the Battle Sword Sect had the least number of members in the nine great sects, their recruitment tests were especially stringent. However, Qin Wentian didn't expect that they would actually have a total of three thousand disciples—one could very well see how fearsome a great sect could be. Not only that, for the other eight sects, it was likely that they would have over ten thousand disciples, with each of them being the elites of their generation.
In fact, if one were to think about it, it wasn't strange at all. The Royal Sacred Region was insanely vast with countless powerful sects and aristocratic clans, and this was including the three great empires, and several ancient kingdoms. The population was overwhelming, and with the nine great sects being the highest-tiered powers below the Royal Sacred Sect, there would be countless talented individuals hoping to join it, year after year. For every ten thousand that came, even if the Battle Sword Sect were to choose only one of them, when the thousands of years added up, then three thousand disciples was actually considered to be on the low side.
"That's the Battle Sword Platform. Whenever the sect has a major event, they sound out the drums to call for all the disciples to gather there." Lin Shuai pointed to another area. Qin Wentian silently took note as he continued following Lin Shuai. And finally up ahead, nine great ancient mountains could be seen. The area each mountain occupied was overwhelmingly large.
"These are the cultivation mountains. With so many disciples in our sect, naturally it wouldn't make sense just to have one speciality and then group everyone within it. There are nine Sword Sovereigns that guide their disciples according to one's strength. Each of the Sword Sovereigns are assigned control of one of the nine mountains, and the elders under them are in charge of the day-to-day administrative tasks, as well as assist the Sword Sovereigns in guiding the disciples. "Senior, which mountain do you belong to?" Qin Wentian curiously asked. "Senior Brother Lin Shuai is the personal disciple of the first mountain's Sword Sovereign, Ling Tian. Sword Sovereign Ling Tian is also the sect master of our Battle Sword Sect," Ye Lingshuang replied on behalf of Lin Shuai. She then continued, "As for the rest of us, we belong to the first mountain as well, but we are not the personal disciples of Sword Sovereign Ling Tian. Our masters are the various elders of the first mountain."
Qin Wentian lightly nodded his head. It was only to be expected that the Sword Sovereigns wouldn't have the time to personally coach all three thousand disciples. Only personal disciples like Lin Shuai would have the privilege to be trained by them.
"Within the nine mountains, there are a total of nine libraries that contain a plethora of cultivation arts, innate techniques, and even notes left behind from ancient times. Disciples are allowed to browse the library freely with no restrictions. And up ahead, that's the place where the supreme elders cultivate, it’s a forbidden area where most disciples have no right to enter," Lin Shuai informed. "Other than this, you'll find that between some of the mountain peaks, there are marks and traces of swordplay cultivators from ancient times left behind. One can freely visit the area and gain comprehension regarding their swordplay," Lin Shuai added. "Next, I'll bring you to an extremely important place in our Battle Sword Sect."
After that, Lin Shuai sped up. Qin Wentian and the others followed closely behind. When he glanced at Ye Lingshuang, he discovered that she, as well as Liu Yun and the rest, all wore extremely solemn looks on their countenances. After some time, they arrived at the foot of a mountain. There were actually many disciples already gathered there and when they saw Lin Shuai, all of them immediately stopped what they were doing and greeted him. Lin Shuai was a personal disciple of the sect leader and his cultivation base had already broken through to the Celestial Phenomenon Realm. He wasn't any weaker compared to some of the elder-level executives of the sect, and hence, he was well respected.
Lin Shuai lightly nodded his head in response. The crowd then shifted their gazes onto Qin Wentian and Qing`er standing behind Lin Shuai, as a look of bewilderment appeared on their faces. Were these two the new disciples of their Battle Sword Sect? To think that senior Lin Shuai would personally bring them to this place. Qin Wentian projected a reserved bearing, yet he was handsome and had an extraordinary aura. Qing`er appeared ice-cold, yet her beauty was comparable even to celestial maidens. Despite Ye Lingshuang's beauty, she could only serve as a backdrop, losing her luster. These two new juniors who'd just joined the sect were indeed unique/uncommon.
Qin Wentian didn't really care what others thought about him. Right now, his eyes stared at the peak of the mountain, only to see a grass hut situated there. This grass hut looked exceedingly ordinary, yet the entire area around it was coated with a mysterious energy. Just a single glance at the grass hut was sufficient to capture Qin Wentian's attention. But what shocked him was that when he tried sending tendrils of his perception into it, it was actually blocked by a formless energy—he had no way to 'see' nor sense what was contained within the grass hut at all.
"Senior, what's inside that grass hut?" Qin Wentian asked curiously. Lin Shuai shook his head, "Nobody knows. Not even my master has ever entered there before. Or to better put it, we are unable to enter it." Qin Wentian's heart trembled in astonishment, who would have thought that the Battle Sword Sect would actually have such a mysterious place.
"This place is where the founder of our Battle Sword Sect used to cultivate in. Rumors have it that our founder had already reached the level of a Sword Immortal, and many speculated that his personal sword was hidden within the grass hut. Some say that there are incredibly profound sword arts within, and others say that there was nothing there at all. However, the mountain pathway up to the grass hut contains essences of the sword insights gained by the founder in his Dao of Swords."
Lin Shuai's countenance was extremely solemn. Only then did Qin Wentian realize that there was a small mountain pathway leading up to the grass hut and right now, there were even people attempting the journey. Yet, they seemed to still be stuck at the foot of the mountain. The distance to the grass hut was too great. For some reason, they were unable to ascend.
And right at this moment, the terrifying sound of a whistling sword filled the air. After which, a mighty sword rainbow flashed past the skies, emanating a might that caused the entire mountain to shake, as sounds of explosions erupted in the air. "Junior Apprentice Sister Hanyou is so strong, she's actually on her ninth step now. Her accomplishments truly paint her as one of the chosen in our Battle Sword Sect." Many people sighed in admiration. "Yeah, Junior Apprentice Sister Hanyou is a personal disciple of the Plum Mountain Sword Sovereign. She's one of those in the younger generations with the highest amount of latent potential this year."
Being able to join the Battle Sword Sect meant that you were already a genius. Yet these people were still full of praise for this particular junior sister. Qin Wentian focused and soon discovered that the sword rainbow earlier had been cast by a young woman clad in a fiery-red dress. This was none other than the Junior Apprentice Sister Hanyou that those people were talking about.
The countenance of this young woman was as cold as ice, yet her figure looked as hot as fire. Her fiery-red dress fully accentuated her curves, and with just a single glance, one felt mesmerized. She was someone extraordinary as well.
"That's Junior Sister Li Hanyou. She's just joined the sect, but was instantly accepted as a personal disciple of the Plum Mountain's Sword Sovereign. Her background itself was already something many couldn't compare to. She's a descendent of the ancient Li Clan located in the southern area of the Sacred Royal Sect, and possesses the bloodline of the Blood Phoenix. Her combat prowess is insane—although her cultivation base is only at the peak of the fifth level of Heavenly Dipper, she can effortlessly defeat those at the peak of the sixth level. She's simply a monstrous genius."
Lin Shuai whispered to Qin Wentian, as an expression of praise appeared in his eyes. Evidently, he had an extremely high valuation of Li Hanyou.
There were so many geniuses in the Battle Sword Sect, and it was already exceedingly difficult to enter it, let alone becoming a personal disciple of one of the nine Sword Sovereigns of the Battle Sword Sect. "Senior, which mountain shall I join then?" Qin Wentian asked as a look of confusion flashed on his face. The nine mountains could be classified as the nine branches of the Battle Sword Sect. He didn't know which mountain to join. "Naturally, the mountain under my master Sword Sovereign Ling Tian." Lin Shuai laughed as he continued, "The mountain path towards the grass hut is extremely rugged and craggy, so ordinary cultivators find it hard to even take a single step. Does Junior Brother wish to give it a try?" "The mountain path to the grass hut? What is it exactly, why would it be that difficult?" Qin Wentian asked.
"You will know if you go there. Actually, that area is a considered an extremely important area of our Battle Sword Sect and its value is comparable to the libraries in the nine mountains. Also, there's no restrictions for this place, so as long as you are able to advance passed the path, you will be able to enter the grass hut. I once heard that there's a senior character in our Battle Sword Sect who barely managed to ascend the mountain path and eventually stood at the peak, entering the grass hut. He was the first member of our Battle Sword Sect to accomplish that. Lin Shuai laughed, his words causing Qin Wentian to feel even more curious. After which, he then nodded his head lightly, "I feel like giving it a try. Qing`er do you want to come along?" "No."
Qing`er didn't seem to be too interested. Back then when experts from her clan went to the Celestial Lake Palace, they had passed her many cultivation arts and innate techniques suitable for her. She wasn't lacking in either of them. The reason she joined the Battle Sword Sect was only because of Qin Wentian. It was impossible to follow and protect him in the dark given how powerful the members of the Battle Sword Sect were. It was highly possible she might be mistakenly identified as an enemy if she chose to hide in the shadows and hence, she could only join the sect together with Qin Wentian. "Mhm, okay then, wait for me here." Qin Wentian smiled. After which, his silhouette flickered as he reappeared once more on the pathway leading upwards to the grass hut. As he stared at the grass hut in the distance, Qin Wentian had a strange feeling that the end point was way further than it seemed. Qin Wentian took the first step out. At the instant his step landed, his surroundings underwent a complete change. There was no longer a mountain path in front of him, but rather, an ancient pathway had appeared instead. The grass hut was situated right at the end of this pathway. All of a sudden, a mountain rampart sprang up before Qin Wentian. On this rampart, there was an incomparably exquisite picture etched upon it. Staring at the picture, Qin Wentian felt his senses being involuntarily drawn out, immersing into it. He involuntarily sighed in his heart. No wonder Lin Shuai said that the value of this place wasn't any lesser compared to the nine libraries situated in the nine mountains. The true form of this ancient path itself was a priceless treasure!

The picture on the mountain rampart was right in front of Qin Wentian, vivid and extremely life-like, containing a myriad of changes within. In the picture, the image of a great roc soared through the skies, hurtling through the clouds with an extremely terrifying speed as fast as lightning. At this moment, a sword beam shot down from the blue skies, startling both the Heavens and Earth. The great roc flew with such speed, yet it still couldn't exceed the speed of that sword beam. The sword attack landed with unerring accuracy and instantly resulted in the death of the great roc. Qin Wentian felt immense shock in his heart. He didn't expect that at merely the first step, the sword strike depicted on the mountain rampart would be so profound that it made him feel as though he was like an ant. His speed when compared to that was nothing. Nothing at all, so slow that he felt like a snail.
Qin Wentian questioned himself. Would he ever be able to unleash such a magnificent strike?
"Wrong. This ancient mountain pathway to the grass hut must be a trial, the first picture on the first step is shown to the prospective trial takers, allowing them to comprehend the essence behind the attack. Earlier, after Li Hanyou slashed out with that strike, she successfully understood and thus was able to advance forwards on the pathway. Since she can take nine steps, how can it be possible that I won't be able to take even a single step?" Qin Wentian mused, although Lin Shuai didn't tell him the instructions, he already understood that this mountain pathway was a trial where one had to understand the essence behind each sword strikes in order to be able to move forward. Also, this place was left behind by the founder. How could it be so easy to comprehend the insights and essence of the founder's swordplay? He mustn't be impatient. "This picture is extraordinary, majestic and impressive. My strength in front of it is nothing at all, I need to enter a dreamscape to better process this." Qin Wentian murmured in a low voice. After which, he closed his eyes and sat down calmly in meditation.
Exercising his will, Qin Wentian instantly stepped into a dreamscape of his own creation. The Diagram of the Mountains and Rivers which he had acquired from the green-robed senior's dream-will inside the dark forest of Chu, could be seen suspended in the air. The stronger he grew, the more extraordinary he discovered this Diagram to be.
Right now, The Diagram of the Mountains and Rivers had turned into the scenario he had seen in the picture earlier. Above him, a great roc soared through the air, hurtling through the clouds with a speed so fast that the naked eye was unable to track its movements. Yet, because he was the creator of this dream, everything here was under his control. Qin Wentian stood above the clouds and watched the great roc fly past. Abruptly, a beam of resplendent sword light descended down from the blue skies, slashing its body. The great roc died instantly. "Hmm, I can't see through it." Qin Wentian was not flustered. He replayed the scene again and again, trying to gain comprehension of that heaven-shocking sword strike.
Gradually, Qin Wentian saw something. This sword strike was like the essence of the wind. No matter how fast the great roc was, it was unable to escape Wind. Wind was present everywhere, and no matter how fast or far the great roc flew, there was no way to escape. The sword strike was hidden within the wind. "I have never gained any insights into the Mandate of Wind before, would I be able to comprehend this strike?" Qin Wentian mused as he brandished his sword. Understanding was one thing, doing it in reality was another. After all, he didn't understand anything regarding the Mandate of Wind. "But it's impossible for every disciple in the Battle Sword Sect to have comprehended the Mandate of Wind. As long as I'm able to comprehend the essence behind it, I should be able to take a step forward." Qin Wentian closed his eyes as he left his dreamscape. Staring at the mountain rampart before him, he stretched his hands out, placing his palms onto it while he thought about his insights into this sword strike. Instantly, a shocking sword beam whistling with anger shot through the skies, sundering the heavens and earth.
The mountain rampart vanished. A smile appeared on Qin Wentian's face as he took a step forward. At this moment, a second mountain rampart appeared, with the second picture engraved onto it.
Depicted was a giant that was so high that its head touched the heavens. With a single step, he could crush mountains, and destroy rivers. A single palm strike from it was even powerful enough to fragment the heavens.
It was an utterly devastating scene. As the giant was galloping, a gigantic sword slashed down from the heavens, splitting the giant into two. The speed of this sword wasn't fast. However, when it slashed down, the giant's immense body transformed into numerous stones and rocks, eventually transforming into a mountain range. "The strength of that sword strike is above millions of jin." Qin Wentian felt tidal waves of shock rushing through his heart. He closed his eyes, entered his dreamscape and replayed that scene once more, trying to contemplate the essence of the sword strike slashed out by that gigantic sword.
"This… I've already comprehended the basic concept of it from the pulsation effect of the Mandate of Great Earth when I practice my halberd arts." Qin Wentian smiled and opened his eyes, placing his palms upon the mountain rampart once more. Another sword beam soared through the skies as he took another step. The crowd within the surroundings that saw Qin Wentian consecutively take two steps couldn't help but to have expressions of astonishment upon their faces. "Junior Brother Qin is truly amazing, he has actually already comprehended the second sword strike." Lin Shuai stared at Qin Wentian in the distance as he sighed in admiration.
"They're only the first two sword strikes. Didn't senior also easily comprehend the first seven sword strikes back then? The first seven aren't that difficult." Ye Lingshuang responded. Lin Shuai smiled, "I did. However, how can my speed compare to him? Tell me how many sword strikes do you think Junior Brother Qin would be able to comprehend today?"
"Based on his speed, his comprehension abilities don't seem to be weak. Maybe he would be the same as the other members who had stronger comprehension abilities, able to comprehend seven sword strikes in a single day I guess. From the eighth sword strike onwards, it wouldn't be so easy any more." Ye Lingshuang replied, as Liu Yun who was beside her, nodded in agreement. "Back then, Li Hanyou also comprehended seven sword strikes in a single day. However, she took a total of three days for the eighth sword strike, and eventually a week for the ninth."
"To be able to comprehend the ninth sword strike, Li Hanyou's comprehension is already extremely outstanding. Maybe she will have a chance to comprehend fourteen sword strikes in a single year." Lin Shuai stared at in the direction of Li Hanyou. This girl had an insanely high comprehension when it came to swords, she should be able to comprehend fourteen sword strikes within a year.
"Junior Qin already comprehended the third sword strike, how swift." At this instant, the eyes of Lin Shuai suddenly gleamed with sharpness. Qin Wentian effortlessly comprehended the third sword strike. "Today, seven sword strikes may not be the limit for Junior Brother Qin's comprehension." "Jiang Huai, how many sword strikes do you think he will be able to comprehend?" Ye Lingshuang turned her gaze to the skinny young man Jiang Huai. Jiang Huai's comprehension was extremely powerful as well. "No idea, but he should be able to break the record of comprehending seven sword strikes." Jiang Huai quietly replied. As they were conversing, Qin Wentian had already comprehended the fourth sword strike and instantly, he attracted the attention of many in the surroundings.
"How fast, he's already at the fourth sword strike. The record was comprehending seven sword strikes in two hours. If this continued on, he would be able to reach the seventh sword strike in just a bit longer." Some had a puzzled look on his face, this newly arrived junior brother did seemed to be extraordinary indeed. "Already at the fifth sword strike, this speed is crazy." Everyone started, Qin Wentian had already taken his fifth step and caused five additional sword beams to shoot out. This was an indication of comprehending the sword strike at the fifth step.
"Awesome." Lin Shuai was similarly shocked by Qin Wentian as well. "The final two sword strikes are much more difficult in comparison to the first five. It won't be so easily comprehended." Someone among the crowd stated. However, the instant the sound of his voice faded, Qin Wentian had already comprehended the sixth sword strike. "How could this be, is this blind luck?" The person who spoke earlier felt extremely depressed, as though Qin Wentian's success was a smack on his face. This caused many to regard him with disdain. "He's going to break the record." Another person stated.
"I don't believe that he'll be able to comprehend the seventh sword strike so fast." That person who spoke earlier stubbornly remarked. And indeed, this time around, Qin Wentian remained motionless for a period of time, standing in silence as though stumped by the profoundness of the sword strike. "Haha, what did I say?" That person laughed as he stared at those next to him with an air of superiority. But when he saw the strange expressions on the faces of others looking back at him, he quickly turned and stared in the direction of the mountain pathway. Beams of sword light filled the sky, Qin Wentian had completed the seventh step.
At the instant he completed the seventh step, a corona of brilliant light enveloped him, causing many to sigh in envy. Above his head, there were actually sounds of a sword keening that rang out unceasingly. "He broke the record." The crowd stared at Qin Wentian in disbelief. They didn't expect a new member to be able to break the record of comprehending seven sword strikes in the shortest amount of time. Lin Shuai's face was filled with smiles. No wonder the ancestor commanded his master to bring him into the Battle sword Sect. It seemed like the ancestor had already noticed his talent. "So what if he broke the record? The eighth sword strike isn't going to be so simple. There's no way he will be able to take the next step." Some commented in a dissatisfied tone of voice. They couldn't believe that a newbie would be able to do what they couldn't do.
"That might not be true, maybe we'll have a good show to watch later." Another person in the crowd spoke in tones filled with admiration. In the distance, a few silhouettes could be seen flying over with blinding speed. Apparently the sound of sword keening was a signal that someone had broken the record. Attracting the attention of others in the Battle Sword Sect.
"The eighth sword strike, it isn't going to be so easy for that lecherous fellow to comprehend it." Ye Lingshuang snorted, glancing at Little Rascal who was in her arms before glancing at Qin Wentian while cursing in her heart. If that that fellow who was as lecherous as Liu Yun could truly have such outstanding talent, the heavens must have been blind!
If Qin Wentian knew that he became a lecher due to the actions of Little Rascal, he might be so angered that he would vomit blood. "Senior Sister Ye, why do you say he is a lecherous fellow? Has he taken advantage of you before?" Someone commented at the side. Ye Lingshuang immediately turned her gaze onto the person as she fiercely asked, "Are you looking for a beating?"
"No no…" That person shivered, immediately shutting up. However, the damage was done, this newly arrived disciple Qin Wentian who broke the record of comprehending the seven sword strikes was already known as a lecher to many. Not only that, he even took advantage of Ye Lingshuang, what a courageous fellow.
Qin Wentian naturally had no idea that his reputation had already been destroyed. Right now, yet another picture depicted on a mountain rampart sprang up before him.
This time around, the same great roc as the first picture soared through the air. And like before, a single sword strike slashed down from the heavens. However, this strike was different compared to the first strike – at the instant this sword strike landed, Qin Wentian could see several streams of laceration energy borne of the wind gush into the body of the great roc, completely shredding it into dust. "How can this be possible?" Qin Wentian started. There was no way that the Mandate of Wind could achieve this degree of killing. Qin Wentian once again entered his dreamscape to contemplate, the scene replaying before him countless times. Yet, he discovered that no matter what he tried, he couldn't successfully replicate the scene in the picture at all. He had no way to evolve his understanding towards the Mandate of Wind. "I must definitely find the reason." Qin Wentian disregarded all his previous notions and started from the beginning once more. The sword strike which slashed down with the wind generated numerous streams of wind-attributed energy that enveloped the great roc. The next instant, when the sword landed, the great roc was immediately shredded into powder. He had no idea how this was accomplished.
Qin Wentian's expression constantly changed. He sank deep into thought and in the blink of an eye, two hours had already passed. At this moment, many people suddenly laughed, it seemed like Qin Wentian wouldn't be able to comprehend this strike at his current level.
"How can the eighth sword be so easily comprehended?" Ye Lingshuang remarked. The difficulty of the eighth sword strike was a whole level higher compared to the previous seven. "I understand now." At this moment, a bolt of lightning flashed through Qin Wentian's mind, he suddenly saw the light. It was impossible to replicate the strike with just a single Mandate. What if…there was a second Mandate fused within the strike? "This is the energy created from the fusion of Wind and Rain." Qin Wentian's eyes shone with a resplendent glow. The scenario was swiftly formed in his dreamscape and instantly, as the wind and rain raged, the heavens and earth underwent a shocking change. Qin Wentian completed the eighth step. The moment his step landed, everyone's expressions changed, their eyes gleaming with utter shock. He had solved the riddle, fully comprehending the eighth sword strike!
