Sage Monarch - Chapter 1191
Chapter 1191: Demonlings
Quite a few disciples were seeking help from Yang Qi because of how he had offered it with no strings attached .
Whether or not people sided with him wasn’t extremely important to him . However, he wanted to take advantage of the situation to win some hearts . As for the potential retribution on the part of Elder Brother Yue, he wasn’t worried . Even if a god came to cause problems, he could handle the situation .
Furthermore, he didn’t let it affect his cultivation .
He continued with his daily routine, seeking enlightenment from the sheepskin scroll and Mahātmā Jade, and learning profound things by studying the essence of the god world .
His daoist techniques were becoming more refined, especially his Civilization Founding Grand Magic and imperial-heaven pre-beginning powers . He was now able to assess the psychic scales of others, and even see their godpower as it flowed through them .
And he could now confirm that his own psychic scale was in the thousands . He wasn't sure what ordinary gods had for psychic scales, but he was sure that they couldn’t compare to him .
His enlightenment of the Sage Monarch Grand Magic was growing more refined . He could now make godnotes that lasted for much longer periods of time, and the quality of the godstones he could create was increasing by the day .
He waved his hand and a fist-sized godstone appeared, glittering with bright light, it almost looked as if it contained a growing world of lightning . Godstones of this quality were considered a rarity .
In fact, he was almost in the position of being able to create godstones that contained god embryos . That was a mark of the Paramount level .
He was just on the verge of breaking through to a level of will that could devastate almost all other types of gods .
Long ago, Yang Qi’s immortal-slaying clone had started out as an immortal embryo in a godly-grade spirit stone . 
However, godly-grade spirit stones were still just spirit stones . Spirit stones were very different from immortal stones, which were in turn very different from godstones .
The highest quality godstones could only be produced from mines in the god world and were never seen in the impure lands . And the power within them was the only thing that could activate and operate god formations . Godstones of the highest quality would eventually produce god embryos, which were expressions of god vitality and life force . Such things were very rarely seen in mines .
Taking a deep breath, Yang Qi opened the Great Classic of God Ordainment and flipped to the section about services rendered to the sect .
‘If you turn in an imperial caliber godstone, you get ten merit points . Hand in a godstone with a god embryo, and you can get five hundred!’ From that it was obvious how rare god embryos were .
In the House of God Ordainment, even just one merit point could be exchanged for many things . In fact, the foremen of the mines would generally be rewarded with a single merit point for meeting their yearly quota .
In the impure lands, spirit stones and immortal stones were classified as such: low-, mid-, high-, supreme-, royal-, imperial-, sovereign-, sagely-, heavenly-, and godly-grade .
But in the god world, godstones were described differently .
Considering that the Great Classic of God Ordainment contained all sorts of information about the god world, it was a given that it described godstones . The ranking went as followed: shoddy, normal, greater, noble, imperial, holy, and perfect .
As for the stones Yang Qi had originally created, they were greater godstones .
His godsands were worth a single noble caliber godstone each, which was why the Primeval Pavilion had been so interested in them . The stones he could create now, with the rumbling of thunder in them, were imperial caliber godstones, which his mine couldn’t even produce .
The type that had god embryos were holy caliber godstones, which Yang Qi still couldn’t produce .
As for a perfect caliber godstone, he had no idea what they were like . They were things that Paramount Gods would use to fuel their god kingdoms .
The Great Classic of God Ordainment didn't contain information about cultivation techniques . However, it had a lot of general information about the god world, describing its geography, the demonlings and fiend-devils that could be found there, and even details about the climate and weather . It also listed the rare types of treasures and medicinal ingredients that existed .
It was essentially an encyclopedia .
Most of the information wouldn’t be useful to ordinary disciples . However, Yang Qi was a veritable dictionary of martial arts, and of all the things he lacked, techniques weren’t even on the list . Therefore, information about the god world was very valuable to him, and it even helped with the God Legion Seal and his Sage Monarch Grand Magic .
Because of that, he spent a lot of time studying the Great Classic of God Ordainment .
Three months passed in a flash .
Of the fifty-five other foremen, about thirty had allied themselves with Yang Qi . And for safety’s sake, they had already moved all of their godstone reserves, as well as their miners and disciples, over to Mine Thirteen . As for their own mines, they had ceased operations .
Demonling attacks had become a daily problem . They would appear out of nowhere, kill some miners, then unpredictably disappear . Although it wasn’t hard to kill the invading demonlings, they never seemed to stop coming . And there were some demonlings who could tunnel through the ground and launch attacks in the deeper parts of the mines, making things even worse . There were also fierce bird-like demonlings that would attack from above and whose claws could easily crush the heads of humans into nothing . Miners were dying on a daily basis .
The demonlings in the god world had to be extremely fierce to survive, and thus attacked viciously, even using invincible divine abilities .
The repeated incursions seemed to confirm that there would be a large-scale invasion soon . It was with great fanfare that all of the foremen went around making preparations for defense .
Yang Qi was continuously bolstering his own defensive spell formations . As for the disciples under his protection, they could see the demonlings rushing forth in attack . But when they got to within about three thousand meters of the shield, streams of sword energy would fly out and slash them to bits . More often than not, their blood would evaporate before it even hit the ground .
There were no subterranean attacks .
The ground was so strong thanks to the spell formation that the tunneling demonlings had no way to break through, making the ground a very safe place to be .
Occasionally, smaller demonlings would try attacking on foot, but the sword energy would slash them to pieces before they could get close . In short, it was impossible for any demonlings to get close to Mine Thirteen .
Unfortunately, the demonlings didn’t fear death, and their numbers only grew as time went by .
Elder Brother Yue sat in a hall in Mine One . Behind him stood an elder with a long beard, flowing hair, and skin that glowed like gold . Obviously, he was a Lesser God .
“Boundless Gods Defend the Body; Overturn the Cosmos and Invert the Sun and Moon; Boundless Will of the Preheaven Dragon . Nine-Dragons Water-Breathing Heavenly-Doctor God Art!”
Nine dragons appeared from behind him, spitting out water that became misty clouds . An intense medicinal aroma filled the area as the clouds entered Elder Brother Yue’s meridians and sea of energy, healing him completely .
Cracking sounds rang out as Elder Brother Yue began to thrum with a powerful aura .
“I’ll never forgive you for hurting me so badly, Yang Qi!” he growled, hands clenched into fists as he shot to his feet .
“What exactly happened here?” the elder asked, his expression grim and full of killing intent . “You were obviously beaten very badly . I heard about the demonling invasion, so I snuck over here to help you . You’re a member of the Yue Clan, so we can’t have you dying out here . But if word were to spread about this, it would make things difficult for you in the future . You would never become the next patriarch of the clan if everyone knew I was helping you . That’s why I can’t take action myself . ”
“It’s like this, Uncle,” Elder Brother Yue said, then went into a detailed explanation . When he was finished, he said, “I can’t believe Yang Qi is that strong . He beat me with one move! In fact, I suspect he's actually stronger than he’s letting on . ”
“What? There’s a foreman of that level here?” The elder was clearly shocked . “I’ll look into it and see if it’s as you say . ”
A mirror formed of godpower appeared in his hand, into which he sent a pearl of energy . Instantly, a scene appeared in the mirror .
He saw all the mines, many of which were empty, other than the roaming demonlings in them .
As for Mine Thirteen, it was surrounded by a rampart of swords, and even the air above it was covered by an energy shield .
Any demonlings who got close, even the crawling type that resembled spiders, centipedes, or scorpions, would all die .
“What a powerful spell formation!” the elder said, visibly shocked . “Not even I could create something like that . ”
1 . I think chapter 403 is the best reference for the information about the clone starting out as an immortal embryo .
