Revolt against the Heavens – Chapter 31: Choosing a weapon

Chapter 31: Choosing a weapon

Cao Yun first scanned the room and soon realized that every rack had only one kind of weapon indeed. But they were all exactly the same training weapon. He moved toward the sword rack. Thirty swords were present here and seventeen candidates had chosen this rack. Sword was the most used weapon by cultivators in the Hongchen Kingdom. It was the weapon of the first emperor, Emperor Nuwa and of the current emperor as well. In the tales, many of the great heroes of mankind used swords too. Sometimes they were strange variation of swords, but swords nonetheless.

rThe swords on the rack were all 3-star Earth rank. Not that great in the Wubei Sect but pretty decent for mere candidates. These weapons were probably only meant for training. Some of the commoners had never even been able to fight with such a weapon in their life, but of course they could not compare to the resources of a martial sect.

rCao Yun had an instant of hesitation but he did not want to use a sword with anything but the martial art of his family, 'Three Storms'. He wanted to have a look at all the martial art manuals but he needed to focus his time on looking for the right weapon and the right manual. He would probably get enough time to browse through these manuals after getting in the sect. They seemed to be pretty accessible if even candidates could try and learn them.

rDeep in his thoughts, he tried to imagine himself with every weapon. The saber was a good option as it was pretty similar to a sword. Blunt weapons did not attract his attention. The whip, the chain or the meteor hammer seemed too complex to learn in only one week and he did not see himself carrying them around. The bow and arrow was intriguing but he did not go well with the way he liked to fight. What he loved in a fight was exchanging moves and he did not see how it would work out with a bow.

rFinally, he thought about the long weapons. He had long hesitations before going to the spear. As he lacked experience with these weapons, he would rather use the simplest one first. Around seven disciples had chosen the spear as well and they had already taken their weapon.

rCao Yun put a hand on the shaft of one of the spears. Infusing his intent in his hand, he felt the spear and decided that he liked it. He could see himself fighting with such a weapon.

rWhen he finally took his weapon, at least a quarter of the time was gone.


rOutside the building, up in the sky, the chief elders were still watching. With their spiritual senses, they could easily see everything that was going on inside the walls.

rBoth Xiao Xuefeng and Chief Elder Baishen got intrigued.
