Book 12, The Descent of the Gods – Chapter 16 Five Years

The war between the Baruch Empire and the Rohault Empire entered a paused state.

“Father, everyone, what do you think we should do?” Within the main hall of Dragonblood Castle, a group of people were gathered, including Cena, Wharton, Gates, Hillman, and Nina. They were discussing how to handle the two new Saints that had just appeared out of nowhere in the Rohault Empire.

Wharton, Zassler, Gates, and the others had just finished listening to Cena’s explanation.

They were all extremely shocked.

“This Rohault Empire…when did it have two such powerful Saints come out of nowhere?” Hillman frowned.

Now that he was able to train in top tier battle-qi methods, he had reached the eighth rank as a warrior. Although his power was far inferior to that of Wharton, Gates, and the others, his status in Dragonblood Castle was still very high.

“Father, Uncles, do you have confidence in being able to deal with them?” Cena looked towards Wharton and Gates.

Wharton muttered, “Although we don’t have a very high level of understanding with regards to the Laws, we have divine artifacts and are Supreme Warriors. If we really were to have a fight with those two Saints, we should still be able to achieve victory.”

Gates, Ankh, and the others all nodded.

Zassler let out a soft chuckle. “Wharton, are you planning to go have a tussle with those fellows?”

“What of it?” Wharton looked at Zassler.

“Zassler, you think that isn’t an option?” Gates and Ankh all looked at Zassler.

Zassler let out a chuckle, but the sound of it was so cold and insidious. “First of all, I want to ask you. If I were to ask one of you to fight against the Gold Dragon and the Tyrant Wyrm at the same time, would you be able to easily defeat those two Saint-level magical beasts?”

“This…” Wharton, Gates, and the others all hesitated.

Against one Saint-level magical beast, it would be fairly simple.

But against two…they would be able to at most fight them to a standstill.

“Hrmph, you aren’t able to do so, but you still want to go?” Zassler laughed condescendingly. “Can it be that you have forgotten what Lord Linley said before entering his closed door training?”

Wharton and the others suddenly started.

They now remembered.

At the time, Linley had strongly and repeatedly instructed them that if they encountered a strange situation, Wharton and the others were strictly forbidden from getting in over their head. In addition, Linley had also said that this war had major dangers hidden within it. This was the reason why Linley had been uneasy.

“At the time, Lord Linley had said that there are terrifying dangers hidden within this war, dangers which not even Deities could underestimate.” Zassler looked towards Wharton and the others. “You said that you didn’t understand how this seemingly simple war with a fixed outcome could have dangers hidden in it, right? Well, now you know.”

At the start of the war, not even Linley had known what the dangers were, exactly.

Only, because of Lord Beirut’s warning, Linley felt uneasy, so he warned Wharton and the others as well.

Wharton and the others hadn’t understood. They had felt that there shouldn’t be any unexpected occurrences to this war.

“Mr. Zassler, what do you intend, then?” Cena frowned.

Wharton, Gates, and the others were all somewhat secretly shocked.

“You need to use your brains. There’s only a few Saints in the Yulan continent. The likes of Lord Linley and Lord Desri should know about even those who are training in seclusion, right? But both of them said that the Rohault Empire has no top-class Saints. So where did those two Saints come from?” Zassler said.

“They suddenly appeared, and caused the war to grind to a halt.”

Zassler laughed coldly. “Clearly, the hidden dangers within this war are already beginning to reveal themselves.”

“Then right now, we…” Wharton looked towards Zassler. He remembered what Linley had told him; if they encountered any major event, they were to discuss it with the highly experienced Zassler.

Zassler said calmly, “It is simple. Don’t be in a hurry to go deal with those two Saints. Lord Linley also said that in this war, our goal isn’t necessarily to totally dominate the other Empires. It is fine if we take over a bit less land. The most important thing is, we have to protect ourselves.”

Everyone nodded slightly.

Wharton said in a low voice, “Fine. For now, let’s watch and see what is hidden within this war.”

“If we encounter any major, critical circumstances, let’s not get in over our heads. At that time, it’s best if we go ask Lord Linley for help.” Zassler said. “But of course, right now, Lord Linley has only been training for half a year, and the situation isn’t too severe yet. There’s no need for us to go disturb Lord Linley.”

Time flowed like water. In the blink of an eye, Linley had been in training for five years.

During these five years, the Yulan continent was secretly in a state of utter chaos. The Baruch Empire, the Yulan Empire, and the O’Brien Empire’s wars had all ground to a halt, and even the Holy Union and Dark Alliance had mysterious experts appear within them.

These mysterious experts were exceedingly powerful.

The wars had ground to a halt.

Yulan calendar, year 10039. Winter. The dark winter night was exceedingly cold. Three middle-aged men dressed in thick cloaks were riding on handsome stallions, hurrying at high speed through the desolate, unpopulated road towards a nearby city.

“Haha, Bluelion City is up ahead. When we reach Bluelion City, we three brothers need to have a good cup of wine or two to help warm us up.” The leader of the three, a big, burly man, laughed loudly. This business trip they had made had been very profitable, and they were now in an excellent mood.

The city walls of Bluelion City rose up ahead of them.

They travelled on horseback through it.

“Huh, weird. Why is it so quiet?” The three brothers rode past the gates of Bluelion City, but found that the gates were open and unmanned. Not a person could be seen.

“Although Bluelion City isn’t a large one, it’s still a fairly bustling one. It has a hundred thousand people. Why is it that early in the morning, not a single person can be seen?” The three brothers dismounted, walking the stallions into the city with curiosity.

The wide streets didn’t have a single person in them.

Utter stillness!

It was roughly seven or eight in the morning now. Logically speaking, the streets should be extremely noisy and bustling right now.

“The hell is this?” The three experienced travelers couldn’t help but feel their hearts quiver.

This bizarre scene caused them to feel rather uneasy.

“Look up ahead. What’s that?!” One of the men pointed up ahead in shock. Nearby, there were two people lying on the street. The three middle-aged men immediately ran over to take a close look.

But as soon as they drew near…

“They are dead!” The three middle-aged men’s faces changed. The two people lying on the ground were bleeding from all orifices, and their blood stained the ground, creating a large, dark violet pool around them.

The cold winter wind blew through, causing the three middle-aged men to suddenly shudder.

“Ahhhhh!” A terrified scream from far away.

The three middle-aged men immediately turned their head. They saw that in the distance, there was a woman with unbound hair running in terror.

“Why are you running? What’s going on?” The leader of the middle-aged men immediately shouted. They, too, were travelers who roamed the lands. They often saw death, and dead people weren’t enough to frighten them. What made them uneasy was…this utterly still environment.

“Dead. All dead. They are all dead.” The woman looked at the three-middle aged men, her eyes round and trembling.

“What do you mean, they are all dead?” A hint of fear awoke in the hearts of the three men.

“All the people in the city are dead. Every single person is dead. Every single one of them!” The woman said in a somewhat deranged manner.

The three middle-aged men were instantly stupefied with terror.

Everyone in the city was dead?

“All dead, all dead!” The deranged woman ran around wildly.

In a single night, the city of Bluelion, with a population of a hundred thousand, now had only a few dozen lucky survivors. The rest had all died. Those few dozen lucky survivors, at daybreak, ran to the city gates in terror, fleeing from this terrifying city.

A city of death!

The news regarding this event quickly spread to the imperial capital, and to Emperor Cena.

The furious Cena immediately sent people to investigate why and how Bluelion City had turned into a city of the dead in but a single night. At the same time, he sent people to find and ask those few dozen lucky survivors what exactly had happened.

Upon the completion of the investigation, Cena, feeling things were taking a turn for the worse, immediately hurried to Dragonblood Castle.

Within Dragonblood Castle.

There were many people gathered within the castle. Not just Wharton and Gates; even Nina, Rebecca, Leena, and the others had come as well. Everyone felt that this was a thorny problem, and all of them had come together to discuss how this problem should be resolved.

“The situation is extremely strange. The nearly hundred thousand people of that city all died with blood flowing from every orifice, and there wasn’t a hint of a wound on their bodies. From the youngest of infants to the warriors of the seventh rank…it was all the same.” Cena said.

In a short night, an entire city’s worth of people had died in such a bizarre manner.

Even experts like Wharton and the others had a hint of a cold feeling in their hearts.

“From what I know, this isn’t even the first time that an entire city’s worth of people died like this.” Cena said solemnly.

“Oh?” Wharton looked at Cena.

Cena continued, “Based on what I know, roughly a month ago, at the borders of the O’Brien Empire, something like this happened to them as well. In a single night, virtually all the people in a city died. However, because it wasn’t within our Empire’s borders, I didn’t pay too much attention to it.”

Housekeeper Hiri frowned. “This event is very strange. For example, what happened to those hundred thousand people in Bluelion City, and why were there a few dozen survivors?”

“Right. Why were there a few dozen survivors?” Zassler also felt that this was very suspicious.

If an extremely powerful expert had used some sort of unknown forbidden-level spell to kill them, everyone within the range of the spell should have died. Even if there were a few lucky survivors, the survivors should all be extremely powerful experts themselves. But the lucky survivors were all ordinary commoners.

“In addition, there was no damage done to the buildings at all.” Cena continued.

Everyone in the hall was confused.

“I sent people to investigate, but we couldn’t find any clues at all.” Cena was also frustrated. “Oh, right. There was one commonality to the tens of lucky survivors.”

Everyone in the hall immediately turned to look at Cena.

“Those lucky survivors were all in fairly hard-to-reach areas. For example, half of the lucky survivors were being held in the deepest prison cells of Bluelion City. The others were all either in underground rooms or in other hard-to-reach areas.” Cena explained.

“Hard to reach areas…so they didn’t die?” Zassler nodded. “Perhaps this wasn’t a magic spell after all. After all, a magic spell capable of covering an entire city wouldn’t possibly care about whether an area was ‘hard to reach’ or not.”

“I recommend that we ask Lord Linley for help.” Zassler sighed.

“Lord Linley?” The eyes of Wharton and the others all lit up.

If Linley were to come out, they would feel much more confident with their leader present and wouldn’t be in such a state of disarray when events occurred.

“Right. In the past five years, there have been simply too many strange events which have occurred. For example, the war entering a state of stalemate, or those mysterious new religions appearing within our Empire, or this dead city…” Zassler said in one breath.

“I agree that we should go speak with my big brother.” Wharton nodded.

Leena’s face revealed a smile on it. “If big brother Ley were to come out, this affair would definitely be resolved easily. Big brother Ley has been in training for five years now. I wonder what level big brother Ley has reached now.”

Everyone’s faces had smiles on them when discussing Linley.

Afterwards, Wharton, Gates, and Zassler served as the representatives of the group and headed to the entrance to the training room.

“Wait a moment.” Wharton’s body was covered with a layer of battle-qi, and then he went straight through to the pocket dimension.

Moments later.

“Crackle, crackle.” A few moments later, passing through those clashing attacking energy streams, Wharton and Linley, dressed in a sky-blue robe and with his hair unbound, stepped out. Zassler and Gates, upon seeing Linley, suddenly felt much more at ease.

“Gates, Zassler, what has happened for all of you to come looking for me in such haste?” Linley said with a smile.

    1. But is it capable of one shooting sovereigns? Nope? and thats why folks.. you should buy the latest model of Air Max, the super kewl electronic bulb for only 99pence.. You can make a account at www. fakku.com and just buy the ultimate bulb there. Go now, while its cheap.

      This product have gone through countless experiments and have been legitimazied by all Made in china products in the world

      PS. Since you need a credit card to buy the divine artefact you should be atleast 18+… Going into the site comes at your own risk.. `flies away`

      1. Geez, Ren, do something about it, those kids are overdoing it, trolling with hentai promotion, sigh! Come on, we have kids here… Oh well, who am i kidding, those times even 10 year olds know everything, heh.

        1. those times? Which times are you talking about precisely?

          And I thought the general understanding of the situation was that they ‘think’ they know everything.

        2. REN can you do something about this if it escaped your godsense

          Ehh…while they might already know about it, we still shouldn’t advertise it. I atleast keep it pg13.

  1. Top 10?

    7th. Thanks for the chapter.

    “You said that you didn’t understand how this seemingly simple war with a fixed income could have dangers hidden in it, right?
    -outcome

    1. u use “utter stillness!”, although not wrong(at least i dont think so) i think it should be silence, especially bc the follow up paragraph talks about how it should be noisy in the morning

  2. Thanks Ren and Donators!

    “You said that you didn’t understand how this seemingly simple war with a fixed income could have dangers hidden in it, right? Well, now you know.”
    Pretty sure that’s “outcome”, not “income”.

      1. considering he wants to keep training both earth and wind, he will most certainly go with clone/ horcrux option, which I am not sure constitutes as true deity.

      2. It’s not even cliffhanger, obviously he is “just one final step away” or something like this. As if IET would deny us breakthrough moment, haha.

      3. @er… cael
        I think there’s no such thing as making two linleys! It ‘s the soul that’ll be torn in to two not the physical body!

        @cb
        I was taking about next prew! it doesn’t say the most important part

        1. Re-read those chapters, ‘Amy’. You concentraded on trolling too hard and missed it. If divine spark is not absorbed then it will create divine body around it, and one’s soul will split in two halves, one of which will be put in ‘clone’, which will most likely work as a puppet with a soul.

          And as i said above, yup. I know you did read it and i replied with that in mind.

          1. this is YUZU
            and I remember that part! but can you seriously imagine mc having a puppet double! It’ll be soooo lame

          2. u think the other half of the soul needs a ‘vessel’ to contain it? or will it form it’s own body?

          3. what if he made a clone(demigod) and sent him to deal with those pests while he himself trains, later they will fuse ..something like that

          4. I swear if they start a fusion dance I’m gonna punch my pc and u guys won’t see me for a while.

          5. “Weak” (compared to the others) MC with a super powerful puppet. Where could I have seen that? Oh, yeah it was Stellar Transformations, the other work of the same author…

      1. about the spoilers forum: can you change the format back? I have to scroll all the way down the page to see the most recent post. I also can’t read anything unless I highlight the post.

  3. Thanks master ren and donors for this chapter..
    …as always, the almighty Linley to the rescue.
    i wonder what he looks like now since its been five years there (well unless the pocket dimension’s equipped with things for personal hygiene…-nitpicker#1)

    maybe he has a flowing beard and everything -he’s a grandpa now afterall 😀

          1. @cb
            what do you mean nub’s’ ??? it’s plural when it should be singular….!

            @cael
            ……. *speechless*

          1. that’s… ridiculous..lol..u mean he have mini DEdges spewing from his fingers? and even if he cut his chin it would regrow back?
            so random hahaha

          2. Spoiler

            Linely does have a beard, when he returns to the NotG he meets Chuck Norris on the 19th floor and after suffering a quick defeat he models his beard after him. and thats the end if the series…

            If you can’t tell this is a troll go back and watch harry potter and the sorcerors stone I belive there was one in the bathroom. Lol

      1. I think linley is a deity now or at least really really close .
        You have to take into account the pocket dimension and all the benefits it offers.

        BTW ero got me thinking,
        you know those characters with unique hair colors (red Green Blue Purple)
        You think the carpet matches the drapes?
        if u know what i mean
        >.>
        <.<

  4. Thanks Ren for the chapter. I wonder if Linley has gained new insight. I hope he is deity level now so as to have enough power to deal with those nine experts.

    1. Considering the prison had deities there, I don’t think simply reaching demigod state will he handle all 9 of them.
      He can handle the saints, and the demigods will wait till he breaks though, but he will die if he tries to fight them all.

  5. I thought that I’d be fine if there was just one more chapter today…
    But this is even more suspenseful D:

    Is Linley a super peak level expert or a Deity?! Did Beirut take into account the pocket dimension when saying Linley has 10 years to train? whoknows

    1. Pretty sure he did take that into account, he reads saint lv peoples memories from hundreds of thousands of km away linelys soul isn’t that strong, and tbh I think he can do the same to dieties.

      1. Heh, i wonder if today’s first chapter will be a bit faster if you are ahead from yesterday ^.^ Good thing you finnaly started resting a little more, Ren! 🙂

          1. Haha, we will see if Ren is taking his rest time seriously. If chapter will be out early, then he is not! And we will need to ‘punish’ him, lol 😀

    1. Mmmm I’m thinking religious sacrifices due to the next chapters name. All hail chuthlu. Lol now wouldn’t that be some sh** h.p lovecraft meets wuxia/ xianxia

  6. I just noticed comments on prev chap. why does it that you guys always trash talk me whenever I’m not online! you kinda hurt my feelings T.T
    and my B’DAY IS NOT AT APRIL 1ST!!! I may act stupidly sometimes but i’m not a fool *angry*
    I think it’s BLACKs b’day, which is at 1st! (since he’s the founder of CA)

    PS. ero you seriously have a screw loose might wanna check that before your brain matter flows in gutter!
    I’m gonna sleep now,so no one dare trash talk me or feel the divine punishment!
    I would be thankful if you read this and ignore it rather than replying it!

    1. Scroll down.
      See A long comment.
      See name “YUZU”
      Automatically ignore Comment.

      Sorry Yuzu .
      Just how my brain works.
      Pretty sure its the same for Ero too.

      1. You know, I was doing my best not to comment on this to do maya a favor. And now you just had to comment.
        And it is not my b’day… and no, not balloon day or bodybuilding day either although they all start with b and end with day(nor belfry day).

        And I’m the founder of CA? Isn’t ren the founder? He started it.
        And apparently nobody wants to be part of it so does it even exist when nobody is in it?

  7. “Right. In the past five years, there have been simply too many strange events which have occurred. For example, the war entering a state of stalemate, or those mysterious new religions appearing within our Empire, or this dead city…” Zassler said in one breath.

    Only needs to be “for example, the war entering a stalemate.”
