They then made their way to a plain area with a lot of identical buildings with courtyards and gardens separating each building. "These are your classrooms. For today we will be going over the basics of cultivation and then we will decide on what techniques to practice for each of you."
Fu Lin then went over the levels of cultivation. "First there is the Gathering Qi level where the cultivators first learn to feel Qi and then use it to enhance their physical abilities and as they reach higher levels they will be able to emit Qi from their bodies.
The next realm is the Qi Condensation realm where you will cultivate to slowly condense your Qi, make it richer and you will focus on filling your Dantian with the Qi and learn techniques that can give your Qi an attribute.
In the True foundation realm you can learn to finely control your Qi and techniques are practiced that will increase the capacity of your Danti
Luo took some time to write 6 copies of the '36 walls of Soul' cultivation technique and handed it to everyone else. Cai MingZhu took her's and said "Well, I have an idea that will restrict the bought copies to the buyer so that others will not be able to make copies themselves. I'll let you know once I've succeeded."Luo and the others, armed with a copy each, started to copy more books. Their target was to reach 1000 as that was the strength of the Ancient Zither Abode sect. It took them a couple of days and they pulled all-nighters to finish copying all 1000 copies of the manual. Hua was starting to hallucinate letters and so he stopped in between, but Hao Qi was extremely efficient.Xun and the Zhong twins were playing around at times but when Luo and Hao Qi glared at them, they would get back to the work at hand.Cai MingZhu joined them and showed them a set of 1000 papers with 2 simple engraved runes written on them."I u
Luo looked at them and said "You know it's things like these that can hurt a man's feelings." They still maintained the distance although they were grinning a little bit. "So, what is your cultivation level right now Hua?" Luo asked him. "Peak of the 5th layer of the Qi condensation realm, you?" "Half step Qi condensation realm (as in almost into the Qi condensation realm 1st layer). So we have both made good progress huh. Thanks to all those pills that Xun'er bought for us from our sales of the 36 walls of Soul manual." "Yeah. I felt that even my share was quite a bit of money and mine was just around 2% of the share. Not to even mention your huge 90% share. What do you even plan on doing with that much money?" " I have a few ideas. I will tell you once they pan out" Luo smirked and started to stretch. "Ohh acting all mysterious are you? Before you act all smug, you should know that you smell worse than a skunk. Let's go wash
With the runes activated and everything ready, Fu Lin started playing her 'Blossom and the Mount Tai' song on her Zither. As her fingers started flowing on the zither, the surrounding sounds of the forest, the birds, the insects all stopped and all that could be heard was the tune that emanated from her zither. Her eyes were semi closed and as she started to play, through the zither, her soul force was unleashed in waves akin to the depth of the music she was playing. In some parts of the music, light and airy, Luo and the others felt a smooth pressure on their souls which coaxed and shaped their soul force slowly. She was in a trance and in this song of soul, she lost herself completely. When there were parts that made one feel as if an invisible heaviness was infringing on you, Luo and the others felt an almost unbearable pressure and all of them had to activate the 36 walls of soul technique. This was completely opposite to th
She then went into detail and explained the importance and significance of the Royal Library. "In all of its floors, the pressure on your soul increases as you keep on going to higher levels. Soul cultivation techniques are pretty rare when compared to normal cultivation methods. The 36 walls of soul technique is a bit different among the normal ones as well as it is a defense technique that uses your current soul as the basis and provides defense, but it has to be practiced in every new soul realm and the discoveries in each now soul realm would be different and the technique changes accordingly. You will naturally know more when you advance and we can talk more about it then. But back to the topic of the Royal library; it was the initiative of the Minister of the Right of the Imperial force to improve the forces of our province and recruit any promising youth. The winners of the Summer competition are kept an eye
Hua and Luo got ready the next morning , donning the robes that Master Fu Rah had sent over to their rooms earlier, the day before. Hua was wearing a white robe with a bright red inner shirt and also donned his red headband, with his sword sheathed to his back. 3 spherical bells were attached to his sword's scabbard. Luo wore white robes with a black shirt underneath. He had his 2 ft long zither in its bag slung across his shoulder, resting behind his back. Cai, Xun, Hao Qi and the Zhong twins were waiting for them at the esplanade. "Both of you, make sure to get something great from the Royal library." Xun'er said. Luo grinned and let them all in on what he was thinking. "You know guys, I have gone through what master Fu Lin said yesterday and I am sure that I can again pull the same thing as with the 36 walls of soul again in the Royal library. She said that we are allowed to peruse the library for a whole day. That means that if I find what I want
The day arrived and it was a breezy sunny morning. The drill sounds of the army could be casually heard as Master Fu Rah along with Luo and Hua were walking towards the registration counter to enter the common area of the Royal Library.As they reached the gates, they saw that there was very tight security outside the gates. Everyone standing there was a peak True Foundation realm cultivator. The receptionist receiving everyones badges and registering them for entry into the library and explaining the rules of the event to them was someone in the Core formation realm.When master Fu Rah and Luo, Hua arrived, they walked towards the receptionist and Fu Rah handed over the tokens depicting the region and the place in the Summer competition over to the receptionist.“Ah, Mi
As they started to climb the stairs to the highest level, the pressure on their souls increased exponentially. Their Qi was draining at an alarming rate and they were having to restore it again and again which made their progress pretty slow. They finally made it to the highest floor with an hour to spare. Everyone else had many chances to go through different manuals and pick up techniques that they thought suited them best but Luo and Hua did not have that luxury of time anymore. Gi Doh commented while looking at Fu Rah, "Just an hour left sect master Fu Rah. What do you think they will pick?" "Let's wait and see master Gi Doh. If they were able to reach that place, it is upto them to pick what they feel is right for them. I wish I could guide them, but really their battle skills cultivation will have to be by themselves as no one can really help anyone in fortuitous encounters like these." Panting heavily, Luo and Hua looked at the cultivation manu
"Well boys, I was checking on your progress with the help of master Gi Doh here. Going to the highest level at your cultivation level….well done! Now I can brag to that Heavenly Dragon sect's Pu Kuh. Which level did that brat Xiao Wu stop at…level 6? Hahahahaha" Fu Rah was full of smugness and was smirking at Pu Kuh from the Heavenly dragon sect. Xiao Wu was shooting lasers with his eyes at Luo and Hua. Pu Kuh donned an openly irritated face. While the smug-faced master Fu Rah was approached by the different masters to congratulate her on getting such good disciples, Hua and Luo slipped by the crowd silently to the side to discuss the items that they got. "Clap and Thundering slash, that sounds like a cool technique right Hua? I can't wait to see how it will turn out to be." "Me too. Me too. But tell me this, how did you know to pick out that book exactly. You didn't even stop anywhere to pick anything else." "You remember last time wh
