The Divine Lot
A large golden tripod had been placed in the stairs below the golden platform!
And behind the large golden tripod was a large map of the Stellar Sanctuary with the gates clearly marked with numbers!
The Lord Supreme reverberated throughout the Golden Ascension Hall, “There will be twenty-four divine lots inside this golden urn. Once all twenty-four divine lots have been drawn, the lots will be re-cast back again. We shall let the major celestial clans that are in the golden seating position pick the divine lot first. Naturally, that will also include the Holy Ascension Sect.”
There were nine other celestial clans that were seated at the golden platform; they were the Mythical Seal Clan, Infinity Sword Celestial Clan, Tranquil City, Celestial Aiel Sect, Erudite Sect, Wind Chimes Sect, East Verdant Sect, White Pristine Clan and the Hegemon Clan.
Everyone was gasping!
Whether it was drawing one divine lot or two divine lots, it did not matter for these ten clans!
The Northern Tyrant who had a seat at the silver platform muttered aloud, “If we are unlucky then we won’t go in with one of the major orthodox celestial clans…”
The truth was that the Northern Tyrant had never been to the Stellar Sanctuary. He had thought that all the celestial clans that had gathered with the Holy Ascension Sect would be going in together!
So this time it was actually his first time. He knew how perilous the Stellar Sanctuary was; every time the Stellar Sanctuary had appeared, only less than a hundred celestials survived the trip.
What was mystifying was that none of the Celestials seemed willing to share anything that they had seen inside!
That was why he had hoped to follow an experienced celestial clan first so that he could take all necessary precautions!
But the Lord Supreme had made it very clearly. The bigger the group, the higher was the risk!
But of course there was something else that was quite explicit but was never openly mentioned. It actually made more sense to enter all twenty-four gates of the Stellar Sanctuary rather than just a single gate for a number of reasons. Firstly, there were more celestial treasures to be shared and if one of the gates was a dead end then everyone would not perish together!
The White Ape Scholar looked coldly at Yi Ping’s direction before humming coldly to the visible hearing of the Northern Tyrant and all the others that were nearby, “That may not be the case. If we follow one of the more experienced celestial clans, it will be difficult to seize the celestial treasures for ourselves.”
The White Ape Scholar was a top exponent of the Celestial Solstice Clan. He had a grudge with Yi Ping and for the past year he had been practicing his Sovereign Martial Force. He had a lucky break and had succeeded in raising his martial force to a new staging level.
The Celestial Solstice Clan was late for the meet and had just arrived just a few days ago.
“I have been to the Stellar Sanctuary and have survived so there is nothing to worry about,” Wan An said coldly.
Wan An was the Domain Lord of the Celestial Solstice Clan and his influence in the Celestial Realm was not beneath the seven major orthodox celestial clans!
The Northern Tyrant smiled coldly, “You must have found quite a few celestial treasures in the Stellar Sanctuary to be this conceit…”
Wan An smirked coldly.
At this moment Old Hare the grand patriarch of the Mythical Seal Clan who was also an Ancient Celestial laughed aloud, “Let the Mythical Seal Clan be the first to draw the divine lot then!”
He had leapt down from the platform!
The Lord Supreme nodded.
