Zhanxian - Chapter 353.1
The Demon sects and the Dao Sects had always struggled to co-exist because their purpose and style of cultivation was all different. Therefore, in addition to righteousness, it had always been the reason for the Dao Sects to eliminate the demons to protect their Dao.
For the Dao sects’ disciples to gain experience, including the rogue cultivators, was a great part of the reason for the elimination of demons to protect the Dao notion. Of course, as for the true Demon sect disciples, there were still some differences, but at least in name, those were all part of the devils.
Some rumours were easy to sever, but some not, thus, it would not be so easy for people who wanted to recruit the Demon cultivators into their sect to absolve themselves.
Although it sounded ridiculous that is the leader of the Dao Sect wanted to collaborate with demons, which was inherently impossible. However, several monster cultivators who have been close to Demon sects had joined the Greatest Heaven Sect’s hall of eccentrics, which in turn seemed suspicious.
If one wanted to start a rumour, one had to explain the intention of the Greatest Heaven Sect for recruiting these monster cultivators. Outside the sect, only god knew that when the Greatest Heaven Sect recruited these people, they just wanted something that could augment their sect’s strength. After making the vows with their monster soul, they would be faithful and reliable, they would not think that they would have such a complicated relationship.
These rumours were anything good, this was related to the development of their sect. If they did not eliminate these misunderstandings with the other sects and continued to develop, they may lead them to have even greater contradictions.
However, it was not so easy to explain this clearly. Even if the Greatest Heaven Sect was too big, some things could not be reassured by words. Especially in the case of power the Greatest Heaven Sect held, it was hard to believe their side of the story.
They had the motive, they have made the move and they were suspected, a few monster cultivators who joined the Greatest Heaven Sect would serve as evidence, so if they wanted to show their innocence with one or two sentences, it would not be easy.
As for expelling the few monster cultivators to show their sincerity, It was even less feasible. Once this was done, it would temporarily indicate that the Greatest Heaven Sect did not have much to do with the demon sects. However, would the monster race be willing to work with them again?
Once those who made the monster soul vows were expelled, the Greatest Heaven Sect did not even need to mention about recruiting the monster cultivators to enrich their sect, they would already be fortunate that they would not be regarded as an enemy by the whole monster race.
For a time, the foreign affairs elders of the Greatest Heaven Sect frequently went out to explain these misunderstandings to the various major sects, to clarify the rumours and to make everyone feel at ease. If all of them had headaches about it, even the recruitment of new disciples for the sect will be hindered.
The information and the materials needed to train the new disciples were all insufficient. Even if they recruited new disciples, it would not be good to train them. It could be that soon, the Greatest Heaven Sect could only suspend the pace in this aspect and recruit the monster cultivators to form a fighting force.
Yang Chen was very happy to watch this kind of excitement leisurely, especially when he knew where this rumour came from. He was enjoying it looking at his enemies at their wits end.
Whilst the Greatest Heaven Sect was thrown into a major confusion because of the rumours that they started, the master of the palace was working with the elders to promote the establishment of forces in the secular world.
Yang Chen’s proposal had been valued by everyone, and everyone had agreed. From the time when the Greatest Heaven Sect started to vigorously recruit the monster race, they were bound to enter the era of madness with various other sects recruiting monster cultivators. Since even the monster race gladly accepted them and they could also be proactive about it, so why not?
After the high-level members decided, everything was much simpler. For the servants, serving as slaves in the Pure Yang Palace, to return to the secular world to be influential people, was just too good of a proposition. All of them knew they just had to take this opportunity. It was all very simple, if one remained loyal to the Pure Yang Palace, one could avail it.
The sect would support these returning secular disciples with huge wealth in the secular world, so that these servants could establish their own family and influence as soon as possible. At the same time, this gave them a long-term business, of course, how to maintain, it depends on how they operate it.
All these slaves who have been released had an additional task; to do everything possible to secretly search and recruit qualified young people, for the sect. They would only pretend to be in contact with those who were tested and would never be found to have a deliberate behaviour.
According to their returns, the sect would promptly arrange formal disciples to bring these outstanding children to the sect. Of course, all of this was to be done in secret, and no one could know except the core disciples who were responsible for the execution and the people themselves.
In the eight months that Yang Chen was waiting for Gongsun Ling, the sect had arranged for at least a dozen loyal slaves. These slaves were also carefully selected with outstanding ability to work, their loyalty to the sect, and families with influence, so if they do suddenly rise, it would not be too suspicious.
The return was almost immediate. In just eight months, according to the method provided by Yang Chen, at least a dozen young people with good qualifications had been found. They also had been secretly taken up to the mountain and were only waiting for when the sect would intentionally open their gate to recruit them as disciples. Thus, justifying their joining of the Pure Yang Palace.
Among the methods provided by Yang Chen for judging their qualifications, the method of judging their postnatal roots was also included. This made the head of the palace and the elders to become doubtful.
In this regard, Yang Chen’s explanation was that he found something strange and was in the process of testing it. Perhaps after decades of experimentation, it was entirely possible to prove something. Before that, he would not explain it for the time being. It was of great importance, but it must be considered from a long-term perspective.
The head of the palace and the elders were remembered how Yang Chen had asked several disciples to change their original cultivation methods, and instead practice the methods of five elements attribute. This point was most prominent in Gao Yue.
Yang Chen did not say exactly what it was, but everyone knew that this was definitely something unique, and he was allowed to test it on these future sects’ disciples.
Everything seemed to be on the right track. If the sect continued at this pace, in another hundred years, it would be enough to build a huge crowd of backup disciples who could compete with the first-class sects.
