Nine Evolutions of the True Spirit Chapter 88 – Sea Ban Lifted

Although the human and monster waters were separated by borders, there was actually a separation zone in the middle. Neither race could station any cultivators in the separation zone and the cultivators were also restricted from entering. This also served as a buffer zone for the North Ocean Alliance and the North Ocean monsters.

Obviously, the border was heavily guarded by both races. But the cultivators were too numerous, it was simply impossible to stop all of them behind the border. Therefore, a lot of human and monster cultivators were still roaming in the separation zone.

These cultivators were adventurers and were considered risk takers for them to sneak through the border and enter the separation zone on their own. They were dangerous, hostile to anything in the zone, and the only thing they adhered to was the law of the jungle.

The rogue cultivators Lu Ping encountered in Zhen Ling Side Hall were such people.

The so-called sea ban restricted cultivators from both races from entering the separation zone. All unpermitted intruders would not be recognized and the officials wouldn’t shelter the cultivators in the zone. No one would avenge the cultivators if they were killed, even by their own siblings, inside the zone.

Therefore, lifting the sea ban simply meant that the North Ocean Alliance would provide protection to the cultivators in the zone. However, this was only effective if cultivators from a higher realm chose to intervene in the lower realm battles.

In other words, when the kids were fighting, the adults shouldn’t interfere!

On the first day of the tenth month, the sea ban was officially lifted.

The cultivators that had been waiting for a long time swarmed into the zone with the dream of slaying monsters, getting rich, and improving their prowess.

They gradually arrived on Huang Li Island but most of them were only in the Blood Refining Realm. They were not as powerful as Blood Condensation cultivators and so they couldn’t go out to the distant sea to slay monsters. They could only roam in the nearby waters to slay Blood Refining monsters. Therefore, Huang Li Island, which was closest to the zone, became their leading operating base.

Lu Ping rented a shop in his own name immediately after the completion of Huang Li Island’s marketplace. His action surprised Li Zi-Ming and the others as they didn’t expect him to have enough wealth to rent a shop. Zhen Ling Sect’s rental fee for a shop in the marketplace was 300 spirit stones a month, to be paid once every six months. Lu Ping paid 3,600 spirit stones upfront and rented the shop for a year’s time.

Li Zi-Ming and the others secretly mocked Lu Ping for wasting his spirit stones on a shop and even Hu Lili came to persuade him out of it. However, Lu Ping only smiled back at her and said, “It’ll be too late if I wait longer.”

He even tried to persuade her to rent a shop herself. But Hu Lili didn’t have as many spirit stones and she wasn’t confident about Lu Ping’s financial decision. In the end, Lu Ping could only rent
