In the place where the Heavenspan river flows from the Heavenspan sea, there is a waterfall so large and boundless that it virtually defied description. It was as tall as an enormous mountain, and so wide that it was impossible to see one end from the other. As the waters flew down, they transformed into the eastern Heavenspan River. The spiritual energy in the area was so strong that it also defied description- it was many times greater than that of the Middle Reaches.
This was the location of the sect headquarters of the Starry Sky Dao Polarity Sect, rising up from within the boundless mists at the bottom of the waterfall. Towering high above the waterfall itself were seven rainbows, which were organized into three levels.
The first level, and the highest, was made up of a single rainbow. The second level had two rainbows, one on the left and one on the right. Beneath them was the third level, made up of four rainbows lined up in a row. Those seven rainbows were actually part of Starry Sky Dao Polarity Sect. Even from a distance, it is possible to see countless indistinct figures flying back and forth through the air.
Furthermore, those rainbows were only part of the sect. Higher up, at the very top of the waterfall, was an enormous, ancient battleship. It was pitch black, and emanated the most archaic of auras. There was something ghastly about it, and it was even possible to see ghostly figures inside, perhaps the reserve powers of the sect itself.
In addition to all that, there were four gigantic cities built on the banks of the Heavenspan River, two on each side. Any one of those cities alone was larger than any of the four great sects of the Middle Reaches, and could clearly house millions upon millions of people.
This was the Starry Sky Dao Polarity Sect!
At the base of the waterfall were four enormous cities.
Towering above the waterfall were seven rainbows.
And behind the waterfall was the Heavenspan Sea!
The ranking and organization of the Starry Sky Dao Polarity Sect is different from that of most other sects. Most sects have an outer sect, an inner sect, a conclave, and a legacy echelon, or some variation thereof. But the disciples of the Starry Sky Dao Polarity Sect are organized by color. Red, orange, yellow, green, cyan, blue, violet.
Anyone under the Nascent Soul stage has to follow that ranking system. Everyone starts out as a red-robed disciple, and rises in the ranks, not based on cultivation base level, but based on how many merit points they accumulate.
The more merit points you get, the higher your rank. Newcomers do not even qualify to step onto the rainbows. Only after becoming yellow-robed disciples will you have the right to be promoted from the ground to the rainbows.
In the Starry Sky Dao Polarity Sect, everyone under the Nascent Soul stage is a disciple, and their ranking is based on the color of their robes, not their cultivation base. That is why Starry Sky Dao Polarity Sect cultivators are often called seven-colored disciples.
The first rainbow is also called the Heaven Rainbow, and is occupied by the Starry Sky Dao Polarity Sect’s one and only demigod patriarch. Beneath it is the Earth Rainbow on the left and the Mortal Rainbow on the right. The Earth Rainbow is for the devas, and the Mortal Rainbow is for the sect leader. It is also the location of many trials by fire and special cultivation zones.
