|Lord of Nether's Disciple Selection|
|Region||St. Ancestral Mountain Range|
Every once in awhile the Lord of Nether recruits a disciple. Whenever he does, it takes place on the top three layers of the Nine-Layered Deathlands, which he has complete control over. Whenever the participants enter a layer, the Nether Realm Master’s servant will appear and announce the rules.
When the test is ready to begin, a large door appears in midair at the entrance of the Nine-Layered Deathlands. This door takes all the participants directly to the seventh layer.
Nie Li, his friends, and most of the experts of the Nether Realm are participating in this most recent disciple selection. In total there are between one - two hundred thousand Demigod, Legend, and Black Gold rank experts that enter.
In the previous disciple selections it was quite common for many to die, but for some unknown reason the master of Nether has designed this first test as a relatively harmless way of eliminating the majority of those that entered.
|7||Sphere of Reverse Images||A few thousand (Nie Li and his friends, the Demon Lord, Mu Ye, Cang Ming, Hua Huo, and many of the Nether Realm's families patriarchs)||This is a test over control and understanding towards Soul Force and Law Energy. One must expand the sphere by injecting energy along thin threads inside of it. However, the threads that are visible are false and a person must use their energy to sense the threads or the sphere will explode.|
|8||Reach the anatta mental state of cultivation while in the Black Infernal Tower.||This test has a time limit of ten days. The tower is full of powerful black flames that get stronger as one moves up in the tower. The flames can directly attack ones Soul Realm, crippling the cultivation of those whose soul is too weak.|
