"This is the Ninth Summit."
A middle-aged man led Jiang Lan on the mountain peak.
This was one of the nine main peaks of the Kunlun Immortal Mountain.
"From today onwards, you are a disciple here, and the only disciple of the Ninth Summit.
The environment here is not good. If you are successful in your studies and want to leave, just let me know. But if my time is up, you can't leave even if you want to. "
Jiang Lan listened to the middle-aged man's voice and nodded lightly.
It wasn't easy for him to join Kunlun Mountain, so he naturally wouldn't leave rashly.
After transmigrating for so long, he had always heard of the power of Kunlun Mountain.
This was a world of vast wilderness, where gods and demons were everywhere and immortals were gathered.
If they were not careful, they would be doomed.
It was safer for him to join Kunlun.
However, his innate potential was not too great. In the end, he was chosen by the Ninth Summit. This was a place that none of the disciples seemed to want to go.
When he arrived, he saw many people gloating.
There were even people who were betting on how long he could last here.
"There is a cave at the back of the mountain in the Ninth Summit. The cave is connected to the netherworld.
The aura of the netherworld is different from the nimbus of universe. It can be slightly harmful to ordinary people.
It is not friendly to cultivators either.
As a disciple of the Ninth Summit, you will definitely be affected by the aura.
However, persevering will help you in your cultivation.
But many people could not persist.
This is also why no disciples would come to the Ninth Summit."
The middle-aged man glanced at Jiang Lan and said,
"I, the lord of the Ninth Summit, Mo Zhengdong, will be your master from today onwards.
I will do my best to nurture you.
I hope you will stay in the Ninth Summit.
The Ninth Summit's duty is to guard the entrance to the Netherworld."
Jiang Lan was a little surprised. He knew that there were passageways connecting Kunlun to the heavenly realm, but he didn't know that there were also passageways connecting to the Netherworld.
The Netherworld was on the Ninth Summit, so the passageway to the Heaven Realm should be on the First Summit?
He wasn't sure, but since the other party had made it so clear, he wouldn't be ignorant about the ways of the world.
He immediately knelt down and kowtowed three times.
"Greetings from Disciple, Master."
His future was uncertain. Fortunately, it was not as dangerous as it was outside.
Jiang Lan was stunned for a moment when he heard this sound, but he was soon overjoyed.
It was finally here. He had been waiting for so many years.
[Primordial Registration System activated.]
[At the beginning of the world, the primordial chaos was the main force. It split into multiple Great Dao that spread across the mortal world.]
[The host can register near the the Great Dao. The closer you are to the Great Dao, the better it is.]
[If you register on the Great Dao, you can sign in repeatedly. Other than the first time, what you acquire from repeated registration thereafter would be far less than the first round.]
[Approaching the source of the Great Dao requires the host to have enough physique and destiny. If the host's capability is too low, he or she will not be able to withstand the gift of the Great Dao.]
[You can sign in once a day.]
After listening to the system's introduction, Jiang Lan had an accurate understanding of the registration system.
But what were the paths of the Great Dao?
He could not see them at all.
Logically speaking, the more special a place was, the closer it should be to the Great Dao.
On the path of the Great Dao, one could be signed in permanently.
Even though it was inferior to the first time, it was most definitely still a cultivation resource.
"Kunlun Mountain is such a special place. There must be the veins of the Great Dao, right?" Jiang Lan made a decision.
Then, he chanted inwardly,
"System, I will sign in here."
This was the mountain path of the Ninth Summit, a part of Kunlun Mountain. Even if it was not the Great Dao, it was definitely close to it.
It was hard to say what would happen.
Furthermore, he did not dare to sign in on the Great Dao in his current state.
After all, it was possible to fail if one's cultivation level was not high enough.
Soon, Jiang Lan heard the system's voice.
[Signed in successfully. Congratulations to the host for obtaining the gift of the Great Dao. You have obtained the movement technique, Nine Steps of Heavenly Travel.]
[Nine Steps of Heavenly Travel: One of the most rapid speeds of the vast wilderness. After mastering it, one can walk on the vast wilderness. Immortals, devils, gods, and ghosts will not be able to approach.]
The moment the system's voice ended, a book appeared in Jiang Lan's mind. The name of this book was Nine Steps of Heavenly Travel.
Moreover, he had a feeling that he could take out this book if he wanted to.
In fact, he could even assimilate it into his mind to learn this movement technique.
"Nine Steps of Heavenly Travel? I've never heard of it, but from the introduction, I can tell it's extremely powerful.
However, I'm still an ordinary person. Even if I learned it, I might not be able to use it. "
Jiang Lan was very happy to receive such a cultivation technique.
At least the signing system was real.
However, without receiving reminder from the system about the Great Dao, he probably could not sign in here again.
Of course, he did not dare to learn it immediately right now either.
Once something strange occurred, it was hard to say if they would encounter any mishaps.
He had no idea what kind of person his Master was.
One had to be wary of others.
"Get up and follow me." Mo Zhengdong did not hold any other emotions on his face.
He had taken in more than one disciple, but none of them stayed.
He had no idea how long Jiang Lan would last.
Jiang Lan followed Mo Zhengdong to a courtyard.
"This will be your residence from now on. I'll be at the top of the mountain. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me." Mo Zhengdong looked at Jiang Lan and continued,
"Find me at the top of the mountain tomorrow afternoon. I'll bring you to the entrance of the Netherworld and teach you the introductory mental cultivation."
With that, Mo Zhengdong disappeared on the spot.
Jiang Lan didn't see how he disappeared.
"This is the power of an Immortal."
It would be a lie to say that he was not envious.
If it was in the past, Jiang Lan might have felt that he was far from achieving such a level.
But it was different now. He felt that it wouldn't be long before he could reach this enviable and safe state.
Jiang Lan entered the courtyard.
He walked to the center and sat there, waiting for the sky to turn dark.
After the sky turned dark, Jiang Lan turned his attention to the book in his mind.
The four words on it seemed to contain boundless attraction, as though they held the mysteries of heaven and earth.
With the guidance of his thoughts, the book on Nine Steps of Heavenly Travel began to open.
He flipped through the book page by page. At first, it wasn't fast, but it got faster and faster.
Countless pieces of information began to flow into Jiang Lan's mind.
A loud explosion was heard.
The world in Jiang Lan's mind seemed to have exploded. Immediately afterwards, it was as if he entered an unknown world.
The sea of stars was dazzling.
He felt like he was in a boundless universe, and the world was beneath his feet.
Allowing him to walk wherever he wanted.
If one took nine steps, they could reach the ends of the earth.
Suddenly, Jiang Lan woke up.
He looked at his own body and had a feeling that even an ordinary cultivator would not be able to touch him if he ran now.
"And this is when I have yet to begin cultivation. If I did, how exaggerated would this Nine Steps of Heavenly Travel technique be?"
"As long as I can achieve phenomenal success, I won't have to worry about traveling the vast wilderness."
"It's my first time signing in and I already acquired something like this. What if I continued?"
Jiang Lan was eager to try.
He was waiting for the next day.
But this time, he had to sign in at a better place.
