Book 13, Gebados – Chapter 20, The Invincible Highgods

“Victory might be possible?” Linley was stirred.

After speaking, Beirut just sat there, looking at Linley with a hint of a smile tugging at his lips. When Linley noticed the expression on Beirut’s face, Linley suddenly understood. He laughed self-mockingly, “Lord Beirut, are you trying to tell me that I should try to avoid battling Deities of a higher level than myself?”

Beirut stroked his beard, starting to laugh. “Right.”

Linley felt a sense of resignation.

Was he an outstanding Demigod? Linley didn’t feel confident in saying that.

Was his opponent a weak God? That was also hard to determine.

Thus, although in theory, a Demigod was capable of killing a God, in reality, the chance of success was very low. Unless that God was already badly injured and on the brink of death, a God in normal circumstances would virtually never be beaten by a Demigod.

Beirut stood up, walking to the door of the study.

“Creaaak!” The study door opened by itself, allowing the night wind to blow in, rustling against Beirut’s black robes.

Beirut hesitated a moment, then turned to look at Linley. “Linley, there are some things that I originally wanted to tell you after you grew more powerful. However, it is hard to say if you and Bebe will remain on the Yulan continent or not in the future. Thus, I’ll tell you it all today. Although this might come as discouraging to you, at least this way, you won’t go on any wrong paths.”

Linley immediately stood up.

Discouraging? Go on any wrong paths? He had never been afraid of taking difficult paths. Ever since he was an ordinary youth, up til this very day, since when had he feared any discouragement?

“Beirut, please speak.” Linley said respectfully.

Beirut smiled and nodded. “You should know the requirements for becoming a Highgod.”

“Yes. Gain insights into all of the profound mysteries of a Law.” Linley nodded while responding.

Beirut sighed, “Yes, when you gain full insights into all of the profound mysteries, you will become a Highgod. However, each Elemental Law is a complete whole, much like how your ‘Fast’ and ‘Slow’ mysteries can fuse into one. If an Elemental Law has nine profound mysteries in it, then…”

Beirut’s eyes began to shine as he stared at Linley. “Any two of those nine profound mysteries can fuse together. Any three can fuse together…and in fact, all nine of the profound mysteries can be fused into one!”

Linley was flabbergasted.

All of them could be fused?

“It is very hard for one to be able to simply gain insights into all nine profound mysteries. To fuse any two or any three of them into one becomes even harder.”

Beirut sighed. “Linley, the true path of training isn’t necessarily ‘the more the better’ when it comes to gaining insights into the Laws. It is ‘fusing the more profound mysteries the better’. For example, the ‘Fast’ and ‘Slow’ mysteries are all low-level mysteries, but when the two are fused into the ‘Profound Truths of Velocity’, it is comparable with high level mysteries. If you were able to fuse three low level mysteries into one, the power would far surpass that of high level mysteries.”

Linley’s eyes were shining.

“If you are able to fuse all nine profound mysteries into one, that would represent that you have truly understood an Elemental Law! That is the highest level of attainment for a Highgod!” When saying this, Beirut’s entire attitude was different.

In his heart, Linley sighed unceasingly.

Gain insights into nine profound mysteries and become a Highgod? That accomplishment was far from the actual peak. To merge all nine mysteries into a whole; that was a true peak.

“Nine types of profound mysteries into one?” Linley’s voice couldn’t help but turn into a whisper. “Lord Beirut, how many experts of this level do the planes of the universe have?”

“How many?”

Beirut laughed as he looked at Linley.

“In ten trillion Deities, only one will become a Highgod! But the invincible Highgods who are capable of fusing all of the profound mysteries in an Elemental Law into one…even I don’t know how many Highgods would be needed to be produce a single such Paragon.” It was hard for even Beirut to say. “All I can tell you is that even in the infinite universe, the number of experts on this level can be counted by hand!”

“Counted by hand?”

Linley’s heart shook.

The universe had existed for an extremely long period of time, resulting in the number of Deities each material plane produced to be an astonishingly high figure. In the countless planes and especially in the Higher Planes, it was hard to calculate how many Deities there were. But even in the Higher Planes, the number of truly peak, perfect Highgods was actually countable by hand!

“Lord Beirut, within the Gebados Planar Prison, are there any experts who have fused all of the profound mysteries of a Law?” Linley said with curiosity. “I heard that there are five powerful Kings there.”

Beirut snorted. “There are not. Definitely not! Even the five Kings of the Gebados Planar Prison have fused only a few profound mysteries of the laws. To fuse all of the laws and become a Paragon? Who can calculate how low the chance is of a material plane to produce one?”

“Lord Beirut, you are that certain?” Linley was somewhat surprised.

Not even the five Kings had reached the state of perfection. Linley wasn’t surprised about that. What he was surprised about was how certain Beirut was. Could it be that Beirut could investigate the strength of others?

“Of course I’m sure.” Beirut nodded and laughed. “This is because, upon a Highgod capable of fusing all of the profound mysteries in an Elemental Law appears, even the Sovereigns…will fight over the chance to invite that sort of genius to work for them.” Beirut sighed in praise.

“After all, only people like them are at the peak of Deityhood…only they are the true peak Highgods! Experts like them, even if a hundred or a thousand Highgods come to fight against them, those Highgods would all die.”

Linley’s heart was somewhat shaking.

Standing at the very stop of the pyramid of Highgods. Invincible presences!

“Invited by Sovereigns?” Linley said in surprise. “Why would Sovereigns invite them? Can it be that their strength is capable of threatening even Sovereigns?”

Beirut laughed, “Linley, you don’t understand. Sovereigns are indeed powerful, far beyond Highgods in power. However…Linley, you must understand, in the boundless universe, the vast majority of planes are material ones. For example, our Yulan continent is in a material plane.”

Linley nodded.

Material planes were the foundation of the universe.

“Sovereigns, on the other hand, cannot casually enter a material plane. Sovereigns possess an enormous divine presence, enough to cause a material plane to collapse!” Beirut said solemnly.

Linley’s heart shook. Sovereigns were indeed far too powerful.

“Linley, the material planes were created by the Laws of the universe. They are not permitted to be destroyed.” Beirut said solemnly. “The Four Overgods have issued a strict order. If any causes a material plane to collapse, then the culprit, even if a Sovereign, would be turned into ash!”

Linley was secretly astonished.

“Thus, Sovereigns do not dare to enter material planes, nor can they enter material planes!” Beirut said.

Linley nodded.

“Thus…these Highgods who have fused all of the profound mysteries in a Law can be described as invincible against anyone below the Sovereign level! If they were to flee to a material plane, even the Sovereigns wouldn’t be able to do anything to them. If a Sovereign was to recruit them, they would be able to accomplish many things for Sovereigns, things which the Sovereigns couldn’t do for themselves.”

Linley nodded, beginning to understand.

Highgods could enter material planes, but Sovereigns could not!

“But of course, that’s extremely far off in the future for you.” Beirut laughed.

Linley laughed as well.

“I’m telling you this because I hope that you, Linley, when training, will begin to sense the similarities and capacity for fusion of any two profound mysteries. After fusing two of them, fuse the third…only by training in such a manner will you have hope. Otherwise, if you were to completely finish gaining insights into all of the profound mysteries, then try to merge all nine into one at once, it will be far too difficult.” Beirut said seriously.

To boil a frog alive, all you had to do was slowly increase the temperature.

Linley nodded, sighing in his heart in praise. “Just the ‘Fast’ and ‘Slow’ mysteries fusing into the Profound Truths of Velocity required me to be able to sense that they had similarities early on. It was so hard to fuse even two profound mysteries. To fuse three or four…” Linley’s heart shook just thinking about it.

Fuse all of the mysteries in an Elemental Law?

Indeed, this was harder than rising to heaven.

“Genius figures such as this are quite attractive to Sovereigns.” Beirut sighed. “Only, these figures are simply too rare, while Sovereigns…there are seven of every type. There are 49 in the Seven Elemental Laws. For the sake of acquiring the services of a Highgod Paragon, they have even struggled against each other.”

Beirut, as a Sovereign’s Emissary, naturally knew many secrets.

Linley stared, speechless.

Even Sovereigns would struggle and compete for the sake of such geniuses.

“If one could reach such a level, one could truly feel proud of one’s self.” Linley felt some envy of those experts. Only they were truly peak level experts.

“Beginning to sense the fusibility from the beginning. Only then will your future accomplishments be great.” Beirut laughed self-mockingly. “For example, myself. In the past, I didn’t know these things. By the time I reached the Highgod level and wanted to fuse them, it was too late. Fuse several mysteries of the Laws into one at the same time? It is too hard.”

Linley couldn’t help but feel grateful towards Beirut.

Although Beirut had only given him slight guidance, to him, this was as good as pointing out a brand new path for him.

Two paths. If one embarked on the wrong path from the beginning, at the end, the difference between the two paths would be immeasurably great.

Most likely, after reaching the Highgod level, he would become like Beirut, completely unable to fuse anything.

“Enough. I’m leaving now. Your future path, you’ll have to walk yourself.” Beirut laughed.

“Thank you, Lord Beirut.” Linley bowed gratefully.

Watching Beirut leave, Linley’s heart began to blaze. It was much like how, when he was young, the War God was the peak, invincible figure in Linley’s mind. But now…the peak in Linley’s heart had become those invincible Highgods who had completely fused the mysteries in an Elemental Law into one!

This was Linley’s new goal!

Time passed quickly and stealthily. In the blink of an eye, year 10046 of the Yulan calendar arrived.

This year was a very fulfilling year for Linley. Having a new goal, he began to train in earnest. The entire Dragonblood Castle was in a constant state of energy, with the various Deities constantly gathering together. Lord Beirut had returned to the Forest of Darkness long ago.

The elder of the three Violet-Gold Rat Kings, Harry, had returned to the Forest of Darkness as well. As for the second and third brothers, Hart and Harvey, they remained at Dragonblood Castle.

According to what Hart and Harry had said, they liked noisy, active places. Linley thus naturally had warmly welcomed the two brothers.

Late autumn in year 10046 of the Yulan calendar.

The O’Brien Empire’s imperial palace took up an extremely spacious area. Aside from Adkins’ palace, even his four Gods had residences within the imperial palace. But of course, Ojwin and the others had their own private estates as well.

The number one God under Adkins command, Barnas, was extremely powerful and also had Adkins’ trust.

Within the imperial palace. Barnas’ residence. Barnas was currently painting atop a long sheet of paper, while Ojwin, Hanbritt, and a golden-haired man were standing by his side, their attitudes quite meek.

After all, Barnas was simply too powerful, and Barnas had a Highgod-level divine artifact! Adkins had personally bequeathed it unto Barnas. Most likely, even when joining forces, Ojwin and the other two wouldn’t be able to beat Barnas.

“Speak. What is it?” Barnas continued to paint, not glancing at the other three men at all.

Hanbritt and Ojwin didn’t dare to make a sound. It was the golden-haired man who spoke instead. “Mr. Barnas, Ojwin dearly loved his son, who was killed. In addition, Ojwin’s divine clone was destroyed by enemies as well. It is hard for Ojwin to accept this sort of humiliation. Only, he didn’t want to make trouble for Lord Adkins, which is why he has never dared to mention it to Lord Adkins. During the past period of time, I’ve come to the decision that brother Ojwin is a friend worth making. Tomorrow, I will make a trip with him to help him gain revenge.”

“Gatenby…” Barnas put down his brush, glancing at the golden-haired man and sighing.

Barnas actually somewhat valued Gatenby. As for Hanbritt, he looked down upon him. As for Ojwin…Barnas felt that Ojwin was too scheming, and thus had never liked him.

“Ojwin.” Barnas looked at Ojwin.

“Mr. Barnas.” Ojwin’s attitude was extremely humble. For the sake of Gatenby’s assistance, during the past two years, he had spent quite a bit of effort before finally getting Gatenby to agree to help.

Barnas laughed calmly. “I’m quite aware of your affairs. If all three of you go and yet still lose, you will have lost face for Lord Adkins. How about this. I’ll go alongside you, and we’ll tear out Dragonblood Castle by its roots.”

Ojwin instantly was wildly overjoyed.

Barnas’ power was definitely incomparably great. Even though Ojwin had gotten a taste of Tarosse’s power, he felt certain that Barnas was not any weaker than Tarosse. After all, Barnas had a Highgod artifact.

Barnas said calmly, “I, too, want to test for myself how powerful that God named Tarosse is.”

  1. Oh god, why am I so exited when Grandpa Beirut tells Linley the path to train for the future? I wish I lived in such a world and trained there all my life while being as lucky and talented as Olivier! 😀

  2. Four Gods against three?
    Now I wonder how do they get away from this predicament, unless Beirut comes himself to save them.
    Well, since Bebe is there living in the Dragonblood Castle I doubt Beirut would let him be killed by these four Gods.

          1. Well it is named “GOD Eater”, maybe its something similar to reducing the Godrealm’s effect along with some of the other advantages of Deities.

        1. +1 vote for bebe’s ‘God Eater’ being unleashed

          able to kill a god or not at his level is 2nd priority, for now 🙂 . afterall, bebe did hinted on it. perhaps it is the same reason Beirut were scouted by sovereign to be his emissary. an ability that can be a nemesis for deity (or godrealm ftm)

          1. could it be an ability that lets him eat the godrealm? in that case even demigods could fight full gods…

    1. Nah, he told him to fuse truths from same law (element). Throbbing belongs to laws of earth and there hasn’t been anything yet that would at least point at wind having it too

  3. Ever since he was an ordinary youth, up til this very day, since when he had feared any discouragement?

    Ren you should flip around ‘he had’ to ‘had he’

    Ever since he was an ordinary youth, up til this very day, since when had he feared any discouragement?

  4. Ren, translation question:
    “Thus, Sovereigns do not dare to enter material planes, nor can they enter material planes!” Beirut said.

    The two statements contradict each other. The first, when it said “dare” implies that they can enter, but do not do so in case of accidentally destroying a material plane.
    However, the 2nd says nor can they (in other words they can’t enter).
    Erm, it is either contradicting each other or repeating itself twice….

    Depending on that note, it seem like Beruit can be a Sovereign and the Sovereign in a material plane make plane go kaboom is not an absolute rule.
    “Sovereigns, on the other hand, cannot casually enter a material plane”
    So if Beruit was a Sovereign, it is implied they would have to do some special process to enter. Such as making himself look like a High God and limiting his power in a way?

    The 7 Divine plane were based on the Sovereigns, which implies Sovereign can make special plane, similar to Linley’s training room. I don’t remember if it said the universe made the 4 higher planes and 7 divine planes though since the universe made the material planes.
    NotG is connected to Yulan plane, in the same way the special training room was connected to Yulan plane. Considering Linley said someone made that special training room, NotG was most likely made by a Sovereign and not originally attached to the Yulan plane.

    Now if the NotG was made by a Sovereign, that means a Sovereign has to be on the material plane of Yulan to make it, thus following my original idea that Sovereign can be on a material plane.

    Also to go along with that note, the one who made NotG, is either the Sovereign that Beruit serves or Beruit himself. See below for why it Lord Beruit.
    Now take note of how Beruit is considered as Sovereign’s Emissary.
    He also said to bring up the attentions of Sovereign, it has to be someone high god level who fused all the profound mysteries into one. But latter, he said he learned about fusing the profound mysteries as a high god, which is too late to fuse into one. While this could still mean he had to spend more time fusing 9 into 8 into 7, it implied Beruit didn’t fuse the laws

    So how could he special enough to be noticed by a Sovereign’s Emissary? He doesn’t fit the requirement of fusing all the mystery into one.
    I’m going with he simply found a Sovereign spark and is not a Sovereign Emissary but a Sovereign himself as he does have some quality of a Sovereign.

    Wow, my theory post was quite long.
    Other topic I mentions often: Not mentions if there are Sovereign for the 4 Edicts yet. He says 49, but says that for the elements specificily, thus impling there can be for edicts as well.

      1. There countless divine beast out there. Only thing special about them post godhood is their special attack. Cause beyond that, someone with higher laws and better weapons can kill one.
        Don’t think Godeater rat was anything too special for a Sovereign to notice.

        1. it is still special because there was only 1, and it possessed a great deal of power. he reached highgod status and thus was worth making a subordinate.

          1. yeah it said even sovereigns would fight over paragons like that. Not that only paragons like that could become emmissaries

          2. Most divine beast are one of a kind. With the numbers in the story, pretty sure there are countless high god divine beast too.

          3. @overlord,
            True, but I said if. Beruit doesn’t reach that requirement, what else would make him noticed by a sovereign.

            Other option if you were related to a sovereign who cared about their bloodline.
            Which would be Linley as it seems DBW are connected to a Sovereign due to the Coiled Dragon Ring, but that sovereign is dead.

          4. quoting beirut
            those type of people can be counted by hand.
            thats 10.if hes in rat form and crouching 20 i guess.
            but there are 49 sovereigns.
            you really think only 20 of them have emissaries?
            And do you even know what power level beirut is?
            You were wondering if hes a highgod or a sovereign?can u be sure he doesnt have enough strength to be noticed?
            Can you really predict that there were no noteworthy accomplishments of the most mysterious character in this novel so far?

          5. He was made to be emmisary of Sovereign only after he prevailed in great war 10 000 years ago, right? 😉

          6. i think it might have been because of his “god eater” ability. perhaps able to counter godrealm?

          7. if they are on the same level godrealm has no effect, it obviously has to do with eating, how it’s different from Dylin and Tarosse dunno but I guess it is more powerful

        2. as for the sovereigns, you have the meaning backwards.

          sovereigns are unable to enter material planes without it collapsing, this is a fact and will occur 100% of the time. the planes are formed by the universe itself and so are valued greater than any individual and thus an overgod will annihilate anyone who is responsible for the destruction of one of these planes.

          as for the laws, Beirut is not saying he didn’t fuse the laws as if he had the choice, he was saying he became unable to.
          let’s use a different system as an example and say there are magicians and mana.
          to rank highly as a magician you had to become powerful and then split the mana into its component elements to truly master the path. it is much easier to separate all the elements when you have very little of it as compared to when you have a god’s worth (by then you already can no longer split it all out, there’s simply too much).
          Beirut is saying the same for this. once you “know all the insights” there is already nothing new to learn about the law, at that point the creative flashes and idea’s needed to put everything together would essentially never occur (you already know everything)

          Linley fused 2 in wind, which means going like that he won’t be the weakest of high gods at that rate, but he won’t be close to the strongest either, thus Beirut warned him to fuse them as early as possible while it is still easy to do so. his throbbing pulse seems to be a high-level type, there has been a few times where suggestions have been slipped about what is the next truths of earth that Linley will be able to fuse with it, he just has yet to notice or use them.

          as for edict sovereigns, nothing has been said thus nothing has been implied, we mus wait to be told since they are different than the elements, there may be 10 there may be 1, maybe none at all.

          1. Mostly correct, but i do not agree about part with ‘no new insights when fully mastered all laws without fusing’. It’s just akin to habbit. If you train two separate movements that could be ‘middled out’, but never fuse them, and you reach mastery level in sperate movements, it would be really, really hard to ‘de learn’ them, and use fused movement ~~ Well, if you call fusing them ‘insight’, then maybe it’s all ok… Matter of how you word it 😛

          2. sovereigns are unable to enter material planes without it collapsing, this is a fact and will occur 100% of the time
            100%? See my translation question to Ren at the start of my theory.

            Besides, pretty sure you can still have insights as a high god.
            High God = 50% of Law/Edict. What with the remaining 50%?

        1. I wrote it as short comment to avoid being too annoying about it, just stating my point. It’s fine for other people to have their own way of interpreting things. 😉

      1. everytime I read his theories ugh..so much wrongs XD don’t know why are you so insistent that Sovereign has some special way to exist in a material plane when it is repeatedly said they can’t and who said a sov must be in Yulan plane to creat NotG and what sense would there be for them to remain there after creating it

        1. agreed. my take it that although a sovereign cannot enter a material plane, doesn’t mean they can’t slash open and ‘dump away’ something through space crack. and i don’t think NotG is so magical that a 1000, or maybe 10,000 deity cannot built. all they need is being supplied with proper material

          1. If NotG was just a building itself, then you are correct.

            However, it also a Pocket Dimension, possibly 3 (since it has a entrance from 3 location, but unknown if you can reach the other NotG using a different entrance.)

            Note how each floor is a different dimension. Pretty sure that not within a Deity’s power to do that.

          2. the NotG itself is humongous. even if each floor is a different, or pocket dimension, doesn’t mean a magical formation isn’t able to sustain it. the NotG might actually consist of multi-level magical formation which, imho, can be arrange by deity. just like a construction worker is not able to draft a building, but still able to built it according to instruction

          3. I’m not talking about sustain it. I’m talking about making the PD.
            Referring to the door at the bottom at the sea.
            That area which the NotG is in a PD, and I’m pretty sure there no obvious magical formation for the entire PD that NotG is in.

          4. i may be wrong, but from what i understand, the ‘entrance’ at the bottom of the sea IS into the plane/space in which the NotG is at, not the NotG itself. probably has to do with where the membrane/barrier between 2 plane is thinnest (like botha leeve). and the reason it cycles between location perhaps because each time it opens and allow passage, the membrane/barrier strength recover very slowly. so as to not jeopardize the Yulan plane, different place to enter the NotG plane is cycled.

            btw, i am talking about the construction of NotG. in which it was created by deites with material tools and design provided by sovereign. the magical formation is to explain how such large floor ‘fit’ into the building. it is all theory, though.

          5. i ran out of time to edit the reply *sigh*

            just because it is PD, doesn’t mean it can’t be accessed from 3 different place. and like i’ve speculated above, the 3 entrance probably to ensure the barrier between yulan plane and the PD stays strong.

            btw, pardon me, but did it really says it is a PD? my memory is quite hazy, sorry

          6. We are getting closer to the same idea now.
            “IS into the plane/space in which the NotG ”
            I’m saying that space/plane is a Pocket Dimension similar to Linley’s room, and that it was artificially made.

            From the sound of Adkins, who was part of Yulan plane before being put into prison, it doesn’t seem like he knew of the NotG and it was ‘recent’ for him. Thus implies NotG was not made by universe like the Material Plane/Prison

            Regarding your edit: That why i said possibly 3, since it is unknown if all those entrance lead to the same PD.

        2. *whisphers* I think he’s a Bei’rat’ fan! that’s why he’s so insisted on Bei’rat’ being a sovereign! thanks for the chapter ren! *runs away*

          PS. 7 elemental laws – 49 sovereigns, 7 for each.4 edicts – 4 over gods (I think)
          I seriously can’t stop myself from touching this ‘post comment’ button! *facepalm* I’m a mega idiot!!!!

          1. it’s okay Tsun we understand.

            you’re incapable of resisting the urge, we still love you all the same 🙂

          2. @yuzu > i agree completely (with your last line) 😆

            btw, you’re dark whisperer now?

            @sylvie > yuzu is just being yuzu-ish :mrgreen:

        3. Again, see my translation question at the start for hint that Sovereign can exist. .

          Main reason I think Sovereign can exist is with the exception of Grandpa, I don’t believe CD is a tragedy.
          If Sovereign is an absolute rule, then according to rule of MC reaching highest level by the end of a series, He will become Sovereign level. Now, since there is a fixed number, I don’t think his entire clan become Sovereigns, and much less have the talent to become deities.
          Due to founding an empire, pretty sure his entire family won’t move to a different plane. So would that mean he’ll say good bye to his family forever?

      1. Wait, so did IET wrote as a contradiction statement, or as a repetitive statement?
        Cause the first part implies that Sovereign can be, but just don’t normally dare to.

        1. Hard to say. It’s not very clear in Chinese either. He first used the term ‘不敢’, ‘do not dare’, and immediately afterwards, ‘也不能’, ‘and cannot’.

  5. The elder of the three Violet-Gold Rat Kings, Harry, had returned to the Forest of Darkness as well. As for the second and third brothers, Hart and Harry, they remained at Dragonblood Castle.

    Ren I don’t know which part is wrong I just know you have ‘2’ Harry, so which one is not Harry? I remember you having typed Harvey in the past possibly?

  6. thanks for the chapter ren!
    i just wanted to clarify. When it says Bebe is a deity, does that mean he is a full god in terms of human standards, or did he just turn into a demigod?

  7. Thank you for the chapter Ren! also FF, CH and HC for donating 🙂
    hmm.. so beirut is telling linley to stall his profound truth research and start mixing truth..
    linley, start telling lies! lol XD

  8. Thx for chapter! 🙂 Geeze, the do not learn, do they? Attacking Linley’s castle again. This time 2 Violetgold rats will finnaly reveal their true power and save the day, huh? 😛

    1. yup i always thought the rats were too underpowered.
      i mean beirut gave a spark to delia but not to his children?
      And if he killed sooo many demigods gods highgods in the original descent of gods he should have a fair amount of sparks

      1. Cause Beruit can protect his children easily, so no need to rush.

        Fusing with a spark hinder further progress and combat abilities. If you are not in a rush, better to reach godhood naturally, and get clones as well.

        Besides, not certain that Delia can reach saint on her own unlike the rats. Pretty sure Bebe would be sad to see Delia die of old age.

        1. she reached saint alone, it’s deity that was a question of time.

          but too many things were happening and Linley wanted to ensure her safety by his side, especially should he ever leave then he would take her with and she would need to be a deity to do so, for safety reasons (saints are the bottom rung of the ladder in a lot of other planes)

          1. no she didn’t, she didn’t know what the black rock was but it was accelerating her spiritual growth, when she became a saint she found out it was a divine spark

        2. There were a lot of hints already about their true power levels, as for example, the most obvious one – being able to sense silver-robed men when Linley and Fain were unable to, and finding their location from thoudands of kilometers away. They should be at least at God level, if not at Highgod ~~

          1. They aren’t Highgods, since Beirut said that it will be difficult for them to reach the Highgod level if they don’t follow his training regimen, but I entirely believe that they are God level in Darkness and Wind

          2. I do not remember him saying anything like that. He only implied that they will lower their future accomplishments if they do not train in all elemental laws to a Diety level before continuing their training in their best elements. Humu, well, Highgods are unlikely, but most probably they are Gods ~~

          3. I think them being gods is the highest possibility.

            as for the multiple elements they don’t want to train in, I just attribute that to having more clones means having more survivability, and if the main body is kept then more ways of attacking which could get you through a tricky situation.
            plus they sound too playful to me to be high gods 😛

          4. Why was that a reply to me? I didn’t say anything about Rat’s true power, only why Beruit needed to give Delia the spark.

            The only problem I have with them being deity level is the fact they let Beruit do all the work in vs demigod fight, Such as when demigod wanted to take over the 18 Duchies.

  9. damnit OJWIN!!!!!!

    fk, i hope the rat brothers show their strength now aswell :S and possibly Delia has finished fusing by now?

      1. lol nice FF reference 😛

        but there’s also the fact that… FF is different nearly every time 😛

        it’s like a dumb-ish person that is training clones in different elements xD they make it to deity in many different elemental laws, but never manage to reach high god with any of them hahaha

          1. don’t think I have.

            but I tend to favor FFX, FFX-2, FFXIII, FFXIII-2, FFXIV.

            not done any of the other’s 😛

          2. ffXIII , XIII-2, and not lightning’s return? the way XIII-2 ended should make you so curious…

          3. try looking for “Dead Fantasy” on YT then. one of the best choreographed fight scene i’ve ever seen. it was made by the late Monty Oum. it shows the FF girls tag-team against Dead or Alive’s.

            p.s: i still have the video 1-3 which were dated 2007 🙂 crappy divx

          4. i haven’t finished either of them yet. had no time to finish them off.

            the 1st because of weapon customizing the 2nd because of getting to boss fight, i’m still powering up some before i feel confident

    1. Vs Gods as they are now, in direct confrontation? Not really… Maybe Linley will skyrocket soon to God level after fusing multiple aspects of laws of Wind and/or Earth? ~~

    2. I imagined a close match so that even Linley and Oliver can contribute with their 1% , shuu just realied they shouldn’t kill those guys except maybe Ojwin coz they would make an enemy out of Adkins, so I think this is how it will go.. Ojwin dies maybe that weak H..something god too and the rest flee

      1. so far, IET likes hinting. Beirut comes telling that demigods can kill gods probably a prelude. just like bebe telling linley to focus on word ‘god eater’. and then he will just use “it must be understood” as always

          1. hope so, or he will have to rely on being given some gold soul pearls from Linley to practise fast enough to keep up.

            IET seems to hate having the MC’s pet companions being left behind

      2. or the rest agree to a ceasefire and no grudges held after ojwin dies, because it was his personal vendetta, he joined adkins to make use of him, hanbritt already got a weapon out of the deal and barnas just wants to see how strong tarosse is.

        personally I see no reason for hostilities once ojwin dies.

        1. i would wish at least one of the adkins team to die, and forces his hand to move, just to be c**kblocked by beirut. afterall, he still needs beirut to open the NotG. that way, the power on his side would reduce a bit more.

  10. “In his heart, Linley sighed unceasingly.”
    SO MANY SIGHS, EVEN IET COULDN’T WRITE THEM ALL IN!

    Well they’re in trouble now… I’m guessing Linley will kill Ojwin’s light clone, and Tarosse and Dylin will somehow deal with the other two. Perhaps Bebe will kill one, and show us his God Eating ability 😀

    1. Though you have to admit IET has to rare talent. How is it he/she got away from variety word choice while still being popular.

      Ex. laugh or cry

      Ex. sigh

  11. error
    “According to what Hart and Harry (Harvey) had said, they liked noisy, active places”

    looks like my guess last chapter about the fusion of mysteries was correct. i wonder though what if someone in the far far far future was able to completely master all 7 laws. what would happen then?

    thanks for the chap

  12. Is it REN or RWX? Anyways, not sure if you still keep track of comments this far back, but I noticed a weird “maybe error”.

    “Although this might come as discouraging to you, at least this way, you won’t go on any wrong paths.”
    followed by:
    “Mental blow? Go on any wrong paths?”

    It seems weird to have used the phrase mental blow there since Beruit is phrased as “discouraging.” Seems like it might read better changed to “Might come as a mental blow to you,”

    Anyways, Thanks for the sweet sweet translations. Binge reading the hell out of this right now.
