He turned to look at the stern man from Xuan Pin Sacred Hall and said, "You represent Xuan Pin Sacred Hall. Say something. Is Luo Yunyang's effort insufficient?"
The stern man hadn't said anything during the discussion, as he knew what he would be getting into if he spoke up.
However, he knew that he could no longer hide after hearing what the Middle Hall Master had said and thus replied, "Luo Yunyang's effort is definitely enough."
"I think Yuan Venerate Cangming and Yuan Venerate Zhanxia are afraid that Luo Yunyang might not have sufficient natural endowment and might waste the Sacred Souls."
The stern man's words were ambiguous. This was really just a way to declare his stance. However, the Middle Hall Master was prepared, as he immediately interrupted the stern man. "So you're saying that the effort Luo Yunyang has provided is enough for him to enter the Sacred Soul Sky, right?"
Upon seeing the Middle Hall Master holding on to this issue so aggressively, the stern man realized that there was no way for him to avoid the question anymore. Thus, he responded decisively, "I am on the same page as the Middle Hall Master. Xuan Pin Sacred Hall supports Luo Yunyang based on his efforts. However, we're worried about Luo Yunyang's potential and apt.i.tude."
The Middle Hall Master interrupted the stern man before he could finish his sentence. "All of you are worried about his cultivation base, which is understandable."
"However, I believe that you have seen Luo Yunyang's cultivation. Not only did he defeat Lie Yunzi while only at the level of a Heavenly Venerate, but he also matched up very well against the Five Qi Mysterious Underworld Brothers, who are the equivalent of a Taichu Yuan Venerate together, and even managed to capture one of them."
"Even if you don't consider this apt.i.tude glorious and shocking, he should still be considered a rare gem amongst us. It could even be said that he is the most talented disciple the Human Race has produced in the last few thousand years. How is he not qualified to enter the Sacred Soul Sky?"
The Middle Hall Master was slightly agitated as he continued his barrage. "His efforts are huge. Nothing can surpa.s.s his effort in averting our downfall."
"Luo Yunyang's actions have saved our race from falling. It will be very disappointing news if we keep such disciples out of the Sacred Soul Sky. Furthermore, I won't be the only one who's disappointed."
Yuan Venerate Cangming went silent. He had said that Luo Yunyang's qualifications were not enough, but to put it bluntly, this was just an excuse. The main reason was the new genius that Da Qian Sacred Hall had just nurtured.
Although the cultivation base of the new genius was only at the ninth-level Heavenly Venerate, it wouldn't be difficult for him to break through and become a Yuan Venerate. Based on the rules in the past, Yuan Venerate Cangming believed that this disciple of his had the biggest chance of entering the Sacred Soul Sky.
Thus, it was only natural that he would object to the Middle Hall Master's fight to reward Luo Yunyang by letting him enter the Sacred Soul Sky.
After all, the Sacred Soul Sky opened only once in every epoch.
Hence, he couldn't give way at all. After exchanging a glance with Yuan Venerate Zhanxia of Battle Hall, he responded in a deeper tone, "Middle Hall Master. Credit is credit, but the Sacred Soul Sky is something else. You can't confuse the two."
"We will not discount Luo Yunyang's credit this time and will not be stingy with resources and cultivation techniques as a reward. However, the opportunity to enter the Sacred Soul Sky still has to be in line with the rules of our Human Race."
"If you break the rules this time, anyone that contributed enough will want to enter the Sacred Soul Sky in the future. When that happens, our Human Race will no longer be able to persevere its high-end combat power."
Yuan Venerate Zhanxia also had similar intentions for Battle Hall, as they never lacked any talented individuals. Furthermore, the most powerful compet.i.tor of the Sacred Soul Sky was a generational genius from Battle Hall.
If Luo Yunyang was given the opportunity, Battle Hall would lose this opportunity. Although Luo Yunyang's contribution was significant, in Yuan Venerate Zhanxia's opinion, Luo Yunyang's cultivation might not be stronger than the generational genius from Battle Hall.
While Luo Yunyang's credit was considerable, this had been just an accident. Rewarding him was a must, but it couldn't come at the expense of giving something that couldn't be given away so mindlessly.
"I agree with Yuan Venerate Cangming's opinion. My Battle Hall is willing to provide treasures, including Tais.h.i.+ Treasures, if Hong Meng Sacred Hall and Xuan Pin Sacred Hall can't come up with the rewards," Yuan Venerate Zhanxia said firmly.
A Tais.h.i.+ treasure wasn't a common sight in the Human Tribe. Not even a Tais.h.i.+ Yuan Venerate would possess a Tais.h.i.+ treasure.
Although Yuan Venerate Zhanxia's discourse sounded extremely generous, it was laden with ulterior motives. This was also the greatest setback to the Middle Hall Master's proposal.
Both Hong Meng Sacred Hall and Xuan Pin Sacred Hall were able to provide those treasures as a reward. They didn't need Battle Hall to offer those treasures.
Plus, they wouldn't embarra.s.s themselves over such a matter.
The Middle Hall Master's expression stiffened. Although he had known right from the start that this wasn't going to be easy, he had never expected it to be this tough.
Hong Meng Sacred Hall wouldn't be stingy after what Luo Yunyang had gone through. However, the Sacred Soul Sky was the ultimate treasure of the entire Human Tribe and all five Sacred Halls had to fight for a place to enter it.
One could brag that their disciple was a once-in-millennium genius, while others could say that their disciples had boundless potential or were late bloomers…
Luo Yunyang's situation had strengthened the Middle Hall Master's fighting spirit greatly and made him ignore the aggressiveness of Yuan Venerate Zhanxia. Instead, he continued to look at the stern man from Xuan Pin Sacred Hall.
"I'll ask again. Does Xuan Pin Sacred Hall have any objections to Luo Yunyang entering the Sacred Soul Sky?"
The stern man was a person with a strong personality. Given his temperament, he should have flipped a table in anger.
However, he did not dare do so now.
After all, Luo Yunyang had just rescued their G.o.ddess. It would be a huge blow for his prestige and Xuan Pin Sacred Hall if he opposed Luo Yunyang right now.
Furthermore, Hong Meng Sacred Hall would not treat them nicely anymore if anything were to happen in the future.
"We do not object." The stern man finally voiced his opinion.
Not objecting didn't mean that he agreed to it. Everyone present could understand what the stern man actually meant, as he had been forced to make such a choice.
The Middle Hall Master scoffed at the reply, feeling very unhappy with the man's decision. However, he couldn't coerce the stern man too harshly, as the two of them had a similar status.
"After listening to all your opinions, objections, and approval, I think that Luo Yunyang's efforts are definitely sufficient for entering the Sacred Soul Sky."
The voice of the powerhouse from Dark Hall was calming, yet it was filled with unquestionable strength.
"In that case, why don't we give that youngster a chance? Let him enter the Sacred Soul Sky without bringing in a Sacred Soul Stone."
Enter the Sacred Soul Sky without a Sacred Soul Stone?
This suggestion made everyone tense up. The Sacred Soul Sky was the location where traces of souls belonging to great deceased Almighties of the Human Race resided.
Those savage souls had no will but still possessed supreme mystic abilities. One could capture a savage soul by using a compatible Sacred Soul Stone and obtain the supreme mystic abilities left behind in the savage souls by those ancient Almighties.
Those souls were savage, so the mystic abilities left behind were usually very minuscule.
However, the Almighties that had left them behind had been on the verge of dying when they had done so. Hence, the abilities they had left behind were the strongest abilities they had possessed.
It could be said that capturing a sacred soul from the Sacred Soul Sky was akin to having a technique that could save a Yuan Venerate's life.
Although those sacred souls had no will, it was still very difficult to capture them. Even a Yuan Venerate would need a Sacred Soul Stone.
A single Sacred Soul Stone would need one epoch to develop, which made it extremely precious. As a result, the compet.i.tion for a place to enter the Sacred Soul Sky became intense.
Furthermore, the environment inside the Sacred Soul Sky was special. The sacred souls might collapse due to excessive disturbance if there were too many people inside. Hence, the quota for entering the Sacred Soul Sky had become extremely precious due to those reasons.
If Luo Yunyang was not given a Sacred Soul Stone to enter the Sacred Soul Sky, it would be up to fate whether he captured a sacred soul.
Dark Hall's suggestion instantly made the eyes of Yuan Venerate Cangming and the others light up. They wouldn't dispute the reward for such great merit as long as Luo Yunyang did not receive a Sacred Soul Stone.
The stern man from Xuan Pin Sacred Hall smirked when he heard the suggestion. Although he felt that the suggestion was a little unfair to Luo Yunyang, he wasn't willing to part with the quota of the Sacred Soul Sky.
Hence, after Yuan Venerate Cangming and everyone else agreed in unison, he responded, "This quota is only part of the reward. Xuan Pin Sacred Hall will definitely send another share to express its grat.i.tude."
Although the Middle Hall Master wasn't happy with the suggestion of the man from Dark Hall, he knew this was the only way out of the situation.
Xuan Pin Sacred Hall's actions made him feel slightly comforted. "Great, in that case, it's settled."
After half a day, Yuan Venerate Cangming and the others left hastily. Only the Middle Hall Master strolled out casually with a wide smile.
Yuan Venerate White Crane greeted him respectfully. "Greetings, Middle Hall Master."
"Alright, skip the formalities." The Middle Hall Master raised his arm and gestured. "Luo Yunyang, you did pretty well this time. Not only did you save the Human Race from a major crisis, but you even improved the reputation of Hong Meng Sacred Hall."
"The Left Hall Master, the Right Hall Master, and I have already talked over this. For your efforts and credit, we'll grant you early access to train for 100 years at the Divine Creation Disc. In addition, you can choose any treasure in Hong Meng Sacred Hall's Tianzi Treasure Vault."
Yuan Venerate White Crane was flabbergasted. Every treasure inside Tianzi Treasure Vault was not inferior to a Tais.h.i.+ treasure.
He had only entered the Tianzi Treasure Vault once throughout the years, and that was when he had just ascended to a Yuan Venerate. Although he had made a lot of contributions after that, he had never gotten to enter Tianzi Treasure Vault again.
"Please be prepared. The Sacred Soul Sky will be open for you in three years," the Middle Hall Master eventually announced after thinking for a moment.
