Chapter 1573: Conjecture about the Undead

This might be the dry corpse’s story…
From the beginning to the end, Han Fei didn’t even know his name, nor did anyone write it down. After all, there was no sound in the picture, so he probably used voice transmission. Therefore, Han Fei didn’t know.
However, Han Fei could tell that this corpse must be the owner of the Dragon-Subduing World, a real king.
After all, the Dragon Slaying Technique was in the Sea Establishment realm, which undoubtedly proved his identity.
When Han Fei came back to himself, he found that the lightning arcs around him had weakened.
Although this was an array set up by the dragons, which was of a higher level, no matter how powerful the array was, it still needed strength to maintain it.
This cage could only constantly absorb power from outside and deprive the mummy of the chance to obtain energy. Only in this way could it restrain the mummy.
And the dry corpse also had special means. He refined the deserted tomb into his own and made it his home although he was imprisoned at home and had to break the seal to leave home!
However, Han Fei’s appearance broke the balance.
After all, Han Fei had just fed the corpse a lot of Chaotic Qi.
At least, in Han Fei’s view, it was a lot of Chaotic Qi. Besides, Han Fei had just fed him a piece of real dragon meat.
Han Fei’s help seemed to have given the mummy the power to break the rules. Therefore, he had just broken free from the restraints of the deserted tomb and walked to the grassland…
At this moment, the lightning arc had weakened, but the mummy didn’t have much power left either.
The dry corpse seemed to be unable to persist any longer. His voice became hoarse and intermittent again…
“One day, I… will… return…”
At this moment, Han Fei naturally didn’t intend to destroy the arrays on the grassland. After all, no matter how weak the lightning power was, it was at least in the Sea Establishment realm. If he went up, he would just lose his head.
Besides, Han Fei wasn’t sure what this old guy would do after he released him. Maybe he would fight his way into the Black Blood City. Of course, he was more concerned about killing dragons. He would definitely search the world for the Azure Dragon.
At that time, if he broke free from the cage or destroyed the Wall of Death, this was something Han Fei couldn’t accept.
Therefore, Han Fei simply shouted at the mummy who was about to enter the tomb, “Senior, I’ll definitely try my best… Find the whereabouts of the azure dragon and try to kill it as soon as possible…”
Hearing Han Fei’s words, the dry corpse reached out and pushed Han Fei out of the grassland, and he fell back into the crack of the deserted tomb.
Leaving the grassland, the old turtle couldn’t help saying, “You actually successfully deceived him. Just now, you seemed to be in a strange state. What happened?”
Han Fei shook his head. “It’s just some stories about this person. It happened after the Age of Doom. You won’t know even if I tell you. I have something important to ask you. Let’s go back to the Fire Stone Island first.”
Han Fei didn’t want to stay here for long. Although the information he learned today was shocking enough, it was just the grudge between the mummy and the dragon race.
Furthermore, this happened after the Age of Doom.
At least, Han Fei knew that the existence of the Wall of Death was not because of the mummy, nor was it because of the azure dragon. He still didn’t find out why the Wall of Death existed from here.
However, even so, the Vast Ocean Navigator was clearly pointing here.
Han Fei didn’t think that the Vast Ocean Navigator made a mistake. The young man and the azure dragon must choose this grassland for a reason.
The young man chose to die here after slaying the dragon…
Unfortunately, many unexpected things happened, and he didn’t want to die.
So he used some method to cause the death energy to descend, cultivated an undead technique and became an undead creature…
In Han Fei’s memory, death energy should only be produced in endless wars, right? However, where did death energy come from this grassland? After all, it was not Death Valley here!
Another point was that since this corpse had transformed into an undead creature, his former subordinates should have also become undead creatures, right?
Fire Stone Island.
The moment Han Fei returned to his mansion with his black-mist body, he didn’t immediately practice the Dragon Swallowing Technique but asked, “Old Yuan, tell me the truth. If a person cultivates an undead technique… how long can he live after becoming an undead creature?”
At present, Han Fei’s understanding of lifespan was only limited to humans. Most Venerables’ life would be declining after they were 5,000 years old. Since their life started declining, their strength would plummet… It could be said that every battle would accelerate their deaths. Even if Han Fei embarked on the path of the Heaven Enlightenment, it would only increase his lifespan to 10,000 years.
Perhaps only special races like the Water Immortal could live for a hundred thousand years.
The old turtle couldn’t help asking, “Why do you suddenly ask this?”
Han Fei said, “The dry corpse didn’t come to this island until he came into the Wall of Death. It was he who summoned a large amount of death energy and transformed him and his subordinates into undead creatures. What do you think?”
Han Fei’s meaning was very clear. Golden Boy had given him so many dragon bones. Could it be that these dragon bones were really useless to him? Or, he knew that the grassland was suppressed by an array, so he didn’t dare to enter that grassland at all?
Even if Golden Boy was a fake king, he wasn’t as powerful as the mummy who could resist the purple lightning. If the mummy didn’t save him, he would be killed the moment he came to the grassland.
Han Fei was very suspicious that Golden Boy and Jade Girl were both the mummy’s subordinates. Therefore, they stayed on this island.
“Wait… you mean that person is an undead creature?”
The old turtle immediately said, “Impossible! It’s impossible for me not to know if a person is an undead creature or not. That person can’t be an undead creature. If he is an undead creature, why does he need to eat? Undead creatures rely on death energy to cultivate. Theoretically speaking, the more deaths there are, the stronger they will be. This is why the Immortal City and the Demon Beast Union broke with each other. Because undead creatures, what they like to see most… is death. However, they also have consciousness and know that they were originally humans, so they don’t want humans to be wiped out.”
Han Fei was stunned for a long time. “He is not an undead creature? I…”
Han Fei saw… the corpse summoning death energy!
Han Fei also saw… the dry corpse trying to transform into an undead creature!
However, what he saw was only an image, a fragmentary memory. He didn’t see everything… Now that the old turtle said this, Han Fei was a little unsure.
Han Fei turned his head and asked again, “Old Yuan, how long can a king live? Can a king live a hundred thousand years?”
The old turtle thought for a moment and said, “A hundred thousand years? I felt that I could live more than a million years after I reached the Sea Establishment. A hundred thousand years is nothing.”
Han Fei: “…”
Han Fei cleared his mind and asked again, “Then let’s not talk about the corpse now. Let’s talk about Golden Boy and Jade Girl… You said that Golden Boy is at most a fake king, right? Do you think they can live tens of thousands of years? Human beings can’t.”
The old turtle said leisurely, “What if I tell you that undead creatures have no lifespan at all?”
The old turtle chuckled. “Think about it… They are dead creatures in the first place. As long as there is death energy, they can survive and grow… When there is enough death energy, they will grow. When there is not enough death energy, they will weaken. Or, when there is not enough death energy, undead creatures can swallow each other. Therefore, theoretically speaking, the more they swallow, the stronger they will be. Of course, there must be a continuous supply of death energy… And when they have no death energy, their souls will be completely gone after they die.”
Han Fei was dumbfounded. “Is it so horrible? They have no lifespan but only life and death?”
The old turtle snorted. “Yes. Generally speaking, undead creatures are incompatible with each other. They will try to swallow each other and make themselves grow. You humans are special because living people are together with dead people, and you have a common enemy. If the undead don’t fight, living people will die too. In the end, everyone will become undead creatures and try to kill each other, which will be meaningless…”
Han Fei swallowed. “So, Golden Boy and Jade Girl are probably left behind by the corpse?”
The Immortal City had enough conditions to supply the undead. There were battles every day and every year. Wasn’t that enough?
However, the old turtle suddenly said, “I don’t care about that. Whether he was left behind by the dry corpse or not, they are still human beings. Although he gave you the dragon bones, you gave them all to that dry corpse, which was to help them. Now, you can let the dry corpse out, as long as you want…”
Han Fei shook his head. “No.”
The old turtle said, “I know you don’t want to. Based on the situation of the corpse, although he is not an undead creature, he is not a normal king! With his conditions, if he doesn’t become an undead creature, he should have died long ago!”
Han Fei slapped his thigh. “That’s right! He should have died a long time ago… But look at him. He can eat, drink, and fight. How does he look like he’s going to die?”
The old turtle said leisurely, “It’s possible if he has been sleeping. He just wakes up in need and seals himself in his tomb most of the time. With the qualities of a king, he can indeed survive. If he can escape from here, he can possess a random person, or reincarnate and cultivate again, and still have a chance to rise again.”
Han Fei frowned. “Doesn’t that mean a king is immortal?”
The old turtle sneered. “Who can be immortal? There are limits. The limit of reincarnation is usually only three times. As I told you, most people can’t achieve it the second time and can only reincarnate once.”
Han Fei shrugged. That’s true! But this is still too unbelievable! If he cultivated to the king level, then he could reincarnate and become a king again. And it was very likely that he could go further.
Confirming the problem about the undead creature’s lifespan, Han Fei focused his attention on the azure dragon. Obviously, the azure dragon had run away.
Since he had run away, Han Fei had to suspect something else. Was the dragon corpse in Forge the Universe the one the mummy had been chasing?
