Shen Qingxuan is a powerful leader of Lianhua, almost reaching the heavens with his strength. Meanwhile, Gu Jianshen is the Demon Lord of Jiuyuan, known for nearly destroying the Three Realms. According to the Heavenly Machine, the cultivation world has not seen an ascension for thousands of years due to the collapse of the Heavenly Ladder. To fix this, Shen Qingxuan must follow the instructions in a mysterious jade slip. The instructions include meeting and getting drunk with Gu Jianshen, among other things that are not entirely clear.
