Before the mine prison is destroyed, Mister Lu thrust an old wooden box into Lin Xun's arms and tells him to go to the Ziyao Empire if he wishes to know his parentage before throwing him into an endless dark tunnel. When Lin Xun regains consciousness, he finds himself alone in the barren wastelands and discovers a strange rune brush and a mysterious old book in the box.
What secrets do these mysterious treasures hold?
Join Lin Xun as he embarks on a journey into the world of cultivation to find his path, uncover the truth behind his birth and ultimately his destiny.
