Fated Cultivation: I Have Max-Level Divination Skills

As soon as Zhao Huai opened his eyes, he realized that he had become the last crown prince of the Great Yan Dynasty. However, he wasn't excited about it because the Great Yan Dynasty had already perished. In the current world, the New Dynasty reigned supreme. He had fled south and settled down, becoming a small pawnshop owner. From being the crown prince of the Great Yan Dynasty to an unknown pawnshop owner, the only thing Zhao Huai could rely on was a golden copper coin he received when he first transmigrated here. By flipping the coin, he could receive instructions in his mind, know the outcome of things, and predict the fortune and misfortune he would face. In front of you is a mysterious ring. Do you accept it? The instruction you receive is "fortune." You accept the ring and obtain the destiny of "Good Fortune." In front of you is a marriage proposal. Do you agree to marry her? The instruction you receive is "misfortune." You choose to marry her and obtain the destiny of "Divine Insight." In the chaos caused by demons and monsters in the Central State, you have achieved great cultivation. Do you want to emerge from seclusion? The instruction you receive is "fortune." You defeat the demon lord with a single sword, shaking the world, and obtain the destiny of "Sword Saint." As the New Dynasty was established, its foundation was unstable. Demons and monsters caused disturbances, and people's hearts were unsettled. The world was filled with countless bones, and small countries were on the brink of collapse. Foreign tribes on the border were watching closely. Even in this prosperous era, there were countless plagues. This was a world where cultivation was revered, and Zhao Huai knew that only by becoming an immortal could he protect himself. While the former officials of the Great Yan Dynasty were searching everywhere for the heir of the former dynasty, attempting to restore the nation and continue the imperial legacy of the Great Yan Empire, Zhao Huai said, "Restoring the nation? It'll not be too late for me to do that after I become an immortal."

Chapter 10: Three Thousand Thunderbolt Technique, Fire Thunder Talisman

Translator: 549690339

"This is..."

Seeing the clear text in front of him, Zhao Huai seemed somewhat surprised.

He had flipped through this parchment roll before, but he couldn't read it at all, so he gave up on trying.

Now, with the [Heavenly Heart Wisdom Eyes] talent added, the obscure characters in the scroll became much simpler.

"Three Thousand...Thunderbolt Technique?"

Zhao Huai looked at the first line of the parchment, slowly reciting it.

The densely packed tadpole-like text could easily be misread if one didn't pay close attention. Fortunately, Zhao Huai had the [Stable Taoist Mind] supporting him, with a calm, clear and stronger spiritual power.

Therefore, he could read the content inside the parchment without any obstructions even with an invisible protective power present.

After an hour of reading, Zhao Huai got a preliminary understanding of what the Three Thousand Thunderbolt Technique was all about.

It turned out to be a textbook teaching the art of creating Talisman Inscriptions, specializing in Thunder Talisman Inscriptions. It can be said that the types of Thunder Talisman Inscriptions in it are all-encompassing, covering all aspects.

For instance, there are top-level talismans specifically designed for large-scale demon extermination, such as the Ninth-Heaven Hell Thunder Talisman, Alarmed Destruction Thunder Talisman, Ten Thousand Thunder Roar Talisman...

For warding off evil talismans, there's Universe Thunder Suppressing Talisman, Black Wood Thunder Talisman, Dragon Thunder Reversing Talisman.

There are also some more basic incantations, such as Five Elements Thunder Talisman, Yin Yang Thunder Talisman, Five Thunder Execution, and so on.

Zhao Huai was dazzled by all the information.

He became increasingly curious about the owner of the black ring.

The Three Thousand Thunderbolt Technique was indeed a good find, as was the unknown Treasured Sword, and the pill he received. All these had been a great help to him thus far, and he could only be grateful.

That person must have been a powerful figure in an Immortal Cultivation Sect; otherwise, they wouldn't have these magical items.

This black ring also served as a storage ring, which was quite useful for Zhao Huai to carry some things with him.

Zhao Huai was quite yearning for the Immortal Cultivation Sects.

But if they could join a sect to cultivate, who would open a little pawnshop and practice cultivation alone?

When he settled down in the south in his first year, he visited those so-called Immortal Sects, but none of them were willing to accept him.

On the one hand, he was too old to join a sect at twenty; their cultivation was considered too late. They believed that even a late maturer would have to reach refining qi to perfection by their fifties, which was too slow.

The other reason was that they all said his spiritual roots were too poor and his potential too limited. They estimated that he could only reach the Initiation Stage at most, and he was not worth nurturing.

From that day on, Zhao Huai's mentality became more relaxed.

Well, there were so many rules for cultivating immortality, and it was better for him to upgrade his destiny by himself instead of joining a sect and being mistreated. It really brought bad luck.

At first, his cultivation speed was indeed very slow, reaching the peak of the outer sect martial arts, but the efficiency of refining qi only reached the second or third stage.

This level was at most equivalent to the bodyguards escorted among the common people, and it was passable for running a Children's Martial Arts School.

Willing to cultivate immortality? Are you kidding?

Keep dreaming!

No one would have expected that the mysterious destiny [Diligent Reader] Zhao Huai had obtained unintentionally would increase his cultivation speed by three times. His realm's advancement speed also rose steadily.

In just one year, all he had to do was sleep in, water the flowers, listen to music and watch beautiful tofu sellers. With casual training, his cultivation quickly reached the ninth stage of refining qi.

These days were wonderful, but Zhao Huai found another problem.

The Immortal Cultivation Sect was right; his potential was indeed low. He had been at the ninth stage of refining qi for a long time, but he still hadn't broken through to the Initiation Stage.

He felt that he needed an Initiation Pill. With it, his progress should be much more efficient.

However, Initiation Pills were hard to buy in the market, as they had a lot of demand but were scarcely available. Ordinary people without strong backing couldn't even buy one.

Maybe he could rely on the remaining pills he had?

Zhao Huai decided in his heart that he would test what kind of pill was in the bottle in a few days.

Although he was thinking about it in his mind, Zhao Huai's hands were not idle.

After reading the Three Thousand Thunderbolt Technique once, he had already memorized the contents in his mind.Next came the practical application, transforming the knowledge of talisman inscriptions in his mind into real usable Talisman Inscriptions.

Zhao Huai took out a stack of blank yellow paper and sketched on it with a brush according to the memories in his mind.

It seemed simple in his mind, but once he started drawing, he realized that these bizarre symbols were truly difficult to draw, especially the top-level inscriptions. He couldn't draw them at all, which required incredibly strong spiritual power!

So, Zhao Huai decided to start with the simplest ones.

The Fire Thunder Talisman, one of the most basic Five Elements Thunder Talismans.

Fire Thunder Talisman: the demon-expelling fire, the object-attracting thunder, using thunder-shocked wood as the base, the cinnabar pen for inscription, the combination of the two complement each other, forming a basic thunder talisman.

"The requirements are quite high. Thunder-shocked wood can ward off evil and it's not cheap, it costs ten taels of silver on the market."

Zhao Huai was slightly surprised.

He didn't expect that drawing thunder talismans would be such an expensive endeavor, and the cost of materials involved would be too much for ordinary people to afford.

From this, he concluded that cultivating immortality was indeed an activity that sucked up money.

But it's alright, he had plenty of money.

After preparing the materials and numerous attempts and failures, Zhao Huai quickly drew his first thunder talisman.

His martial talent was now incredibly high, no matter how difficult the cultivation techniques, heart techniques, or skills were, he could learn them quickly. In the end, he had to thank the Heavenly Heart Wisdom Eyes.

Zhao Huai picked up the newly-drawn thunder talisman, just about to test the power of the Fire Thunder Talisman.

But there was a knock on the door outside.

"Knock, knock."

The knocking was light, and the rhythm was slow.

Hearing it, Zhao Huai couldn't help but be curious. Who would come looking for him at this hour, when the sky was already dark?

Although his relationship with the neighbors near and far was not bad, there was no one who would come knocking at this time.

Outside the window, dusk had fallen; lanterns were lit in front of the shops, and the busy streets filled with the smells of various steaming snacks. The night market was bustling.

Zhao Huai went to the door, opened the bolt, and quickly opened the door.

But upon opening the door, the person he saw made him dumbfounded.

A beautiful lady was standing at the door, smiling at him.

With a small wooden food box in her hands, Yu Qinghan was wearing an elegant long dress, a smile on her lips, and her slanted eyes narrowed into a gap.

"Miss Yu, what brings you here?"

Zhao Huai rubbed his eyes, unable to believe his own eyes, and asked incredulously.

They had previously agreed to meet on the day of their marriage. He didn't expect that after an afternoon, it wouldn't be long before she arrived, bringing her luggage. What was she up to?

"Young master, have you had dinner yet?"

Yu Qinghan blinked her beautiful big eyes, expectantly.

"Uh... not yet."

Zhao Huai touched the back of his head, feeling embarrassed.

He had been drawing talisman inscriptions for a long time and had already forgotten about everything else, naturally including dinner.

Yu Qinghan smiled and said, "I heard that the tofu sold by the tofu beauty in the east city is quite good, so I bought some to taste, made it into a dish, and asked the matchmaker to inquire about your residence. I just happened to bring a bit over."

"How about we have it together?"

Zhao Huai heard this and smiled as well.

Eating tofu? That's great.

He did like tofu.
