Book 13, Gebados – Chapter 24, The Mountain Range of Death

Linley and Bebe secretly left Dragonblood Castle. Nobody knew they were gone. At first, Wharton, Taylor, and the others didn’t feel strange upon discovering that Linley wasn’t in Dragonblood Castle. They thought that Linley was training within the pocket dimension.

Only after half a month did they discover from Delia that Linley and Bebe had already left.

As for the ordinary guards and maids of Dragonblood Castle, they only found out about this a long time afterwards.

Although after the ‘dead cities’ events, the population of the Rohault Empire had collapsed and it could no longer be termed an Empire, there were still quite a number of people living within its borders. Especially in the past twenty years, the population of the Rohault Empire had increased significantly again.

The Rohault Empire. Within a quiet little town. In the center of the town was an exceedingly large manor, which had guards within standing ramrod straight. Even the maids didn’t dare to giggle and joke around.

A gaudily dressed, cruel-looking, middle-aged man walked into the manor.

“Lord Anras [An’la’si]!” The guards called out with great respect.

Anras nodded slightly, continuing forward. Soon, he arrived in front of a quiet little courtyard. There was a man dressed in a gold-threaded robe there sitting on a chair, holding a five-centimeter thick book in his hands.

“Lord Sadista!” Anras bowed respectfully.

The man reading the book was Sadista. Sadista had spent the past twenty years in the Yulan Plane in this quiet little town. However, nothing which occurred within the Yulan continent could escape the notice of Sadista. As for Anras, he was one of the three Gods under Sadista’s control.

“Anras, what is it?” Sadista continued to read as he said calmly.

Anras said respectfully, “Lord Sadista, according to the news we received from Dragonblood Castle, Linley left Dragonblood Castle long ago.” Sadista hadn’t found it too hard to insert some people into Dragonblood Castle.

Sadista cared most about two locations; the imperial palace of the O’Brien Empire and Dragonblood Castle.

He inserted people into the O’Brien Empire’s imperial palace to monitor Adkins’ activities. After all, in the entire Yulan continent, Sadista was concerned about only two persons. One was Adkins, while the other was Beirut. But Beirut’s ‘metallic castle’ didn’t permit entry to others at all.

Thus, Sadista was unable to insert any spies. All he could do was take a step back and insert people into Dragonblood Castle instead.

Inserting people into Dragonblood Castle was partially because of Beirut, while partially because of the Dragonblood Warriors and the Undying Warriors.

“Whap!” He suddenly closed the book, raising his head to look at Anras. “Linley left Dragonblood Castle. Just by himself?”

“No. That Godeater Rat known as Bebe went with him.” Anras said respectfully.

“Hmph.” Sadista let out an unhappy snort. “This Linley is always with that Godeater Rat. Killing him will be rather difficult.” Sadista had never planned to truly give up on killing those descendants of the Four Divine Beast clans.

“This Linley is less than a century old, and yet he is already at such a level. Even in the Four Divine Beast clans, he would be considered a top tier talent. In addition, this is before he’s gone back to the ancestral halls of the Four Divine Beasts and undergone their baptism. If he undergoes the baptism within their ancestral hall, in a short period of time, a talent such as him will definitely become a major force for the Indigo Prefecture, and another major foe for our clan.” Sadista’s face was solemn.

Sadista knew about the legends of the Four Divine Beast clans.

“Linley is already so powerful despite not having returned to the ancestral hall of the Four Divine Beasts. When he does return, it will indeed be troublesome.” Anras nodded as well.

“If the Indigo Prefecture learns that the Four Divine Beast clans have a talent such as him in the Yulan Plane, they will definitely spare no expense to bring Linley back to them.” Sadista said coldly. “Those other people in the Dragonblood Castle, that Wharton and Barker and whatever, they are secondary. Even if they return to the Four Divine Beast clans, they will just increase the total population slightly. They won’t result in anything amazing. But that Linley…”

Anras secretly nodded.

Generally speaking, only after undergoing the ancestral baptism rites would the scions of the Four Divine Beast clans make rapid improvements. For Linley to be so powerful before undergoing the ancestral baptism rights meant that once he did undergo those rights, his future ability…would definitely be enough to cause Sadista worry.

After all, he had become a Deity within a hundred years on his own. This already spoke to Linley’s potential.

“However, our number one priority this time is still the Necropolis of the Gods.” Sadista said with a frown.

If they wanted to enter the Necropolis of the Gods, then they couldn’t offend Beirut.

If they killed Linley when he was with Bebe, Bebe would definitely memorize the aura of those who had killed Linley. When the time came…he would definitely be able to find out that it was Sadista’s group.

“No matter what, we can’t kill that Godeater Rat known as Bebe.” Sadista knew very well that this was the only one of Beirut’s progeny who had become a Godeater Rat. Beirut had even sent his two sons to Dragonblood Castle to protect Bebe.

From this, one could tell how much Beirut valued Bebe.

If they killed Bebe, then…

Beirut’s rage was something which he, Sadista, couldn’t withstand.

“In addition, Beirut’s backer is no ordinary person. If we truly were to wreck our relations with Beirut, then most likely even our entire clan would suffer a huge calamity.” Sadista was dimly aware of how terrifyingly powerful Beirut’s background was.

“To kill Linley, we have to find the moment when Linley and that Godeater Rat, Bebe, are separated and not together. At that time, we would change our appearances, then seize the opportunity to kill Linley!” Sadista’s eyes revealed a cold light. “Hmph. Even if that Linley and Bebe are spiritually connected, at most he’ll be able to send a mental message of the appearance of his attackers. There’s no way to send a person’s aura.”

Sadista wasn’t worried at all of being discovered by Beirut given that situation.

Because…

Even as someone as mighty as a Sovereign couldn’t find out what had happened in the past or what would happen in the future. As long as Beirut was unable to find the murderer, what would he, Sadista, have to be afraid of?

“I want to see where that Linley is!” Sadista spread out his divine sense, instantly covering the entire Yulan continent. But of course, he intentionally used his divine sense to avoid the Forest of Darkness and the O’Brien Empire’s imperial capital.

“The great plains of the far east!” Sadista let out a cold laugh, and then turned towards Anras. “Anras.”

Anras immediately bowed.

“Anras, immediately go to the great plains of the far east.” Sadista instructed.

“Yes, Lord Sadista.” Anras replied.

Sadista nodded calmly. “When going to the great plains of the far east, don’t intentionally go searching for Linley. I will occasionally search for Linley’s position. Once I notice that him and Bebe are separated, I will immediately tell you through my divine sense and instruct you to kill Linley. Remember, change your appearance first.”

“Yes.” Anras immediately changed his appearance slightly.

Someone as powerful as a Deity could use divine power to repair their body. Naturally, they could also use it to change their appearance.

“This Linley actually went running out of Dragonblood Castle for no reason. He’s asking to be killed. I was worried about him spending this entire time in Dragonblood Castle and not having a chance to deal with him.” Sadista sneered coldly to himself.

Linley and Bebe had already been in the great plains of the far east for three full months. During these three months, Linley and Bebe had only relied on their legs to travel, all the way from the Baruch Empire through the border with the great plains of the far east. They had travelled south the entire time, passing through mountains, rivers, and plains.

Three months later, Linley had already encountered many locals. Linley completely acted as though he was an ordinary person and lived an ordinary life.

In the southern parts of the great plains of the far east, they were quite close to the Burning Desert. There were some mountains nearby as well. Linley and Bebe were currently within the middle of one of those desolate mountain ranges.

“So this is the legendary ‘Mountain Range of Death’ which those locals spoke about.” Linley stared at his surroundings and let out a breath. “However, I haven’t discovered any reason for this place to be called the ‘Mountain Range of Death’.” Linley was dressed in a sleeveless shirt, and his powerful muscles made the shirt bulge out as well.

After three months of travel and tourism, Linley had once again found that sense of excitement he had in the past.

He liked this sort of interesting, unique experience.

Bebe was wearing his straw hat, chewing on a piece of a straw. Staring at his surroundings, he said, “Boss, this ordinary people call it the Mountain Range of Death, but to us, of course it has no danger whatsoever.”

“It isn’t any danger to us, but at least, it should have something special.” Linley began walking forward again. “Come, let’s go further into the mountain and take a closer look.” Leaping a few dozen meters with one stride, Bebe immediately caught up to Linley.

The two walked forward, side by side.

The Mountain Range of Death, according to local legend, was an exceedingly dangerous place. This Mountain Range of Death, especially in the southern region of the great plains of the far east, the ‘Casale’ [Ka’sha’er] region, was very famous. Many people didn’t dare to enter this mountain range at all.

“Child!” “Child!” …..

A faint, desolate cry could be heard deep within the mountains.

“Oh?” Linley and Bebe exchanged a glance. Not hesitating at all, they immediately moved forward quickly, like two gusts of smoke towards the distant source of sound. They easily passed through any gorges or boulders which would have blocked their way.

Soon, Linley and Bebe arrived in front of the person who had emitted those cries.

“Someone dares to enter the Mountain Range of Death?” Linley and Bebe were both very surprised.

The person who cried out was a plainsman. Right now, the man was currently crying out desolately. His clothes were torn apart, and he appeared in terrible straits. Linley and Bebe, hearing his desolate cries, could both sense the pain and franticness of this man.

“Hey, what’s wrong?” Bebe hopped right in front of that plainsman.

The plainsman, upon seeing Bebe suddenly appear, was greatly startled. But then, he said frantically, “Child, what are you doing in the Mountain Range of Death? Quick, leave. This place is very dangerous.” The plainsman, seeing Bebe, clearly took him to be a youngster.

“Boom.” With a flick of Bebe’s slender arm, a nearby, enormous tree with a girth which would require two men to encircle it with their arms, instantly shattered. With another pat on the shattered tree trunk, Bebe transformed it into a straight line, sending it flying hundreds of meters away into another, unknown part of the mountain.

“And you are worried about me?”

The plainsman was scared silly. That enormous tree was incredibly heavy. Even the experts he knew, or even his clan’s leader, couldn’t possibly send such a heavy, enormous tree flying until it disappeared into the distance with a palm slap.

“Might I ask, what happened? Why are you in the Mountain Range of Death? Aren’t you afraid?” Linley walked over as well.

The plainsman looked at Linley, then looked at the youngster in front of him wearing a straw hat. He somewhat understood that he had met with true experts. The man, with a ‘thud’, sank to his knees. “Milords, I’m begging you, please save my child.”

“Speak, what happened?” Linley asked.

“My son disappeared in the mountain here.” The plainsman said hurriedly.

“If you knew it was dangerous, why did you bring your son in?” Bebe said unhappily.

The plainsman hurriedly explained, “Milords, you don’t understand. Although others believe the Mountain Range of Death to be deadly, in truth, it isn’t that scary. There’s only a single area within the Mountain Range of Death which is dangerous. The other areas are very safe. Those of us who live here all know about it, and so when we go into the mountains to cut trees for wood, we will all go into the mountains. As long as we don’t go near that dangerous area, it’s fine. In the past, when I went woodcutting, I would have my son by my side. But this time, when I turned to look, my son had disappeared. I don’t know where he ran off to.”

“I beg of you, milords, help me find my son.” The plainsman sobbed.

Linley nodded.

“Is your son a seven or eight year old child dressed in red cotton clothes?” Bebe asked.

“You…how do you know?” The plains man stared, shocked.

Linley and Bebe glanced at each other, laughing. Their divine sense had spread across the entire mountain in an instant. Naturally, they were able to find that child.

  1. hahaha yay :3 gratz alfa 😛

    “Inserting people into Dragonblood Castle was partially because of Beirut, while partially because of the Dragonblood Warriors and the Dragonblood Warriors.”

    2nd should be undying warriors?

  2. “Inserting people into Dragonblood Castle was partially because of Beirut, while partially because of the Dragonblood Warriors and the Dragonblood Warriors.”

    The second should be immortal warriors right ? =D

      1. thats okay. refresh does that to you xD

        safe bet is to copy paste the error and refresh once to check if it’s mentioned 🙂

        what matters is that people help Ren xD

          1. try reading that page again jagged.

            it’s discontinued and all the volumes are apparently already scanlated.

          2. Hi jagged0, if I work on something, it will probably be something new and not ‘taking over’ something already worked on.

          3. @Sylvia What got discontinued wasn’t the novel but the manhwa. But since MU is mainly about manga, they don’t have a page for the novel in which the Manhwa was based on.
            At least, the Sword Emperor novel continue on, unlike Id who got discontinued on both form

          4. noooo you reminded me of the legend that was ID >.<

            i spent nights awake daydreaming myself with ID's powers and flirting with irlina.

            then the company fails and everything grinds to a halt midstory. and i don't know if the novel goes further than where the manhwa stops and if it does, if any1 will continue translating it past japtems dropped 1/2th of volume1. ID was the ultimate childhood dream for me :'(

            as for the MU, if it's novel then it makes sense, thought he was asking for the manga lol, but doesn't seem like something ren would do :S taking over that is (otherwise i would beg him to TR ID lol)

  3. This chapter was a refreshing change of pace to me. Ever since the experts showed up in the last book I haven’t enjoyed the pacing as much. It is really enjoyable just reading Linley and Bebe adventuring.

    1. certainly. there is still the tension that if the 2 split up Linley will die, but for the most part, there is very little that can be a threat to them. :3 and as Linley said before, he may just make some breakthroughs thanks to the journey if all goes well.

      here’s hoping it’s a calm time in the story XS

      1. My guess is that if they split, Linley will actually kill this God who attacked him as a result of God understimating him a little bit too much 😛

        1. Second thIs. Kinda convenient plot element to mention that demigods can kill gods. Cause otherwise, it already know that lower tier can kill higher with certain conditions.

          And Bebe will return before Sadists van get there to finish the job.

          1. in ST IET liked the whole, MC is unique and can overpower people many ranks above him. in this it seems that is only possible for the immediate rank, and even the conditions are pretty much impossible to ensure.

            unless you are there to kill a god just as he left demigod, and when he did it by spark instead of himself. it’s a nice mention but it reeked of “yes it’s possible but don’t be as naive as to expect it to happen” when beirut said it.

            if linley had some more high god divine artifacts then i think it would be doable for him, but he only has bloodviolet so far.

      2. *whisper* ‘Sadista’??? what a name! I somehow thought it suits sylvia soooo well. thx for the chapterrrrrr!!!!!! *runs away*

        PS.I too am glad that their going on a adventure but Linley……. still not a deity after 20yrs…….. seriously??? I thought you were a genius?! 😉 well i can’t blame him since i too estimated the time to be around 40-50yrs.
        either way it’s good to know that he’ll get a huge power up after leaving to infernal realm! 🙂
        and runsing, spank me huh? don’t even think about it! you can’t even catch me! hehehe bye! 😛

        1. i thought chuunibyou supposed to affect early teenager 😯

          is this some rebellious period because you can’t accept the reality that you’re no longer a ‘teen’?

          1. chuuni is an incurable affliction. it takes strng willed friends and family and a lot of luck. relapse is always still possible too.

            look at the japanese, there seems to be waytoo many 30-40+ yr old chuuni-NEET’s dying from truck collisions every year 😛

            (the most overused deathcard in japanese WN hahaha)

        2. to be fair linely is mastering a high lvl mysteries, him being able to hit the bottleneck this quickly is already a miracle, if it wasent for those 120m souls he absorbed, this would take him hundred if not thousands of years even for a genius, dont forget those souls helped him increase training speed 10+ times just for 20m souls. also if u think about it everyone in CD so far, i mean even including oliver, became deity so far mastering low lvl mysteries, that includes liney, that combining stuff made them ( O & L) deity’s (even though they are high lvl now, individually they are sill low lvl mysteries)

    2. @ ralkij dem ryt.. i do hope this fun adventuring will run for quite a bit before they turn to confront those gods…reading all-out battles filled with dread for the MC leaves me exhausted… (thats how im too into CD i gues :D)

  4. …can we like, skip this entire book and go straight to where Linley meets his ancestors, I was already insanely curious last chapter when Sadista called the supreme warriors divine beasts, but now I’m DYING of curiosity. 🙁 Not to mention Linley meeting his ancestors is one of the two things I’ve wanted since the start of the book, the other being Linley finding Grandpa Doehring’s lost sculptures even though it’s unlikely.

    P.S. Is there some place I can look at future titles of books, without Google translating the RAW’s?

  5. I wonder if the golden dragon warrior transformation is part of the ancestral baptism rites.

    For regular transformation without required blood density, a blood of a dragon close to saint level is required.
    For golden transformation, a gold blood is required. Origin of blood is unknown and is possibly from the dragon warrior sovereign.

    Both cases involved giving blood to a DBW, which can be considered a rite of sort.

    Since artifact was used, I’m going to say Linley only went though a partial rite, as his improve hasn’t increased as stated.

    Maybe the ancestral baptism rites involves giving a larger blood dosage and does something to his soul?

    1. Well if he is a divine beast as Sadista said, then he should have an ability that only divine beasts have such as the devour ability of Dylin, I doubt a magic barrier around his soul counts.

      1. rather than the dragonblood warriors being divine beasts i think its more than they are descended from a divine dragon who mated with a human after gaining human form at deity level, as for the rite i also think he went through a partial one when he took in that golden drop of blood and didn’t his soul improve in power when he did and gained his new form? or was that only from the souls.

      2. Didn’t he mention all of the supreme warriors being divine beasts. Always, I always thought it was weird that everyone outside the plan thought he was a draconian. I would like to here an explanation for this one. Lastly how did Zasslar meet or know of the Draconians which come from different planes.

        Maybe it’s time for the Zasslar clan to take over! :O
        Bebe Clan we must watch out for them along with the F5 army. :O

        😛 D

        1. all these divine beasts have awesome abilities like in ST
          i bet after linely goes through that baptism at the indigo palace or something, i guess we can expect new powers.

        2. I think Zassler knew the of the Draconians because of his summoning abilities. You know the weird place where he goes to hunt for summons. Maybe he encounter dead draconians there.

      1. since IET let us ‘hear into the thoughts’ of the plainsman, i’m doubting it.

        unless IET goes againts his own writing, which is i must say, is cheap and trolling

  6. Yep, Deities are cheaters.

    So the Supreme Warrior clans DO have an established power in the other planes! Good to know. The Indigo Palace, hmm? Sounds cool.

  7. Hey guys, per some request last chapter, I have started to work on an unofficial timeline.
    It is for the use of current translations, so may contain information that spoiler to plot if you read it before being up to date with the translation (referring to how Glossary is completely spoiler free).
    Note, I said Unofficial as Ren has not approved this yet. I’ll ask Ren to give his opinion after it becomes up to date.

    Please take a look at tell me any advice. Make comments if you see I missed information in the years I have gone though.
    https://docs.google.com/document/d/1VP6Ryvf0UET6HarzxtORjRPQIWcv-zxI_VbmY0Jk_Qk/edit?usp=sharing
    Currently, I am up to date with information on Book 8 chapter 16. It’ll take me a while to get up to date with current translation since I am rereading the series in a way to have as much details as possible.

    1. Oh this would make fanfiction writer(s) have a easier life. Also, it’s cool to see the timeline of the events. Maybe we see some mysterious ahead of time. Please continue!

    2. It’s really awesome what you’re doing please keep at it.
      On the 5000 b.L, you can put the imprisonment of Dylin and his 5 sons
      on 17 a.L, Idk if you want to mention linley getting the warblade of the 1st DBW
      There’s a small typing error on 19 a.L

    1. he can only read minds under deity lvl m8, i bet if he can read minds, he would snatch CD ring ages ago by now, dont forget his ruthless personality, the only reason he favors linely is because he took care of bebe and bebe himself adores linely, that CD ring is the title of novel, and i bet that ring is extremely imba item even for an sovereign, ofc beirut would seize it immediately if he knew about it, (remember even linley only found out about it after he become a deity so even if beirut read his mind before, there was no information regarding it) also if u remember adkins mentions his worry about beirut might be having high-god lvl soul protecting artifact, also if you think about the CD being damaged atm, i am guessing it might have been damaged in a fight against multiple sovereigns. hence the key in linleys success will be in restoring CD and making it acknowledge him as it’s master and give him access to it’s powers. he still have like 1k years till the NOTG anyway, also he has to make breakthroughs in all the elements if possible since beirut is trying to make his sons do this for millions of years i guess it worth doing this. also he as to find more souls for cd to absorb, i bet with enough mastery of cd, he will later be able to absord saints/Deity.

      1. not sure if i agree about unable to read deity’s mind, since he is able to block divine sense. and it might even be a special ability, since adkins, which is also a highgod are unable to do so. (or at least haven;t been confirmed otherwise) or else he would’ve read fain’s mind during the attack to war god mountain. moreover, now it is hinted that Beirut might also has at least one sovereign artifact.
        and when he finally gives attention to linley, he also got to knows how deep connection between linley and bebe, so the ‘snatching’ is highly unlike to happen

        1. It was stated by IET as narrator that ‘only Dieties can prevent their minds from being read’. We don’t really know if Demigod level is enough or not 😛

          Also, i do not think Beirut is aware of CD ring. Even if you read someones memories, you need to actually concentrate about one part, it’s not like you get them all instantly… Is my guess 🙂

        2. i would say, he would snatch it in a heartbeat, simple logic really, all these guys are trying to increase their martial powers to the max, even beirut spent millions of years to increase his power, and he is ruthless (he could have killed all those guys who first left through crack with a sneeze if he wants too, or even before that he could have sealed that crack to begin with but he cba ) and he cares so much about improving strength from the training he gives to his sons and bebe, now cumming back to the point, the most important thing for these deities is protecting their souls, and how many soul protecting artifacts have you seen so far ? hundreds of divine weapons and still no soul protecting artifact, and what are the chances of finding an soul protecting sovereign divine artifact which can absorb and refine souls like crazy, i bet any sane deity, even those paragon high-gods would give their left xxx to have CD ring. i think you are underestimating viciousness of deities m8.

          1. As for Beirut, I don’t think he knows about the CD ring, and even if he knew, I don’t think he’d snatch it. It has already been suggested that he possesses at least one sovereign artifact (undamaged) thanks to being the representative of a sovereign. At his level, using a damaged item would be suicidal.

  8. ren, if you have time, please fix the mobile platform aswell plz, i mainly use mobile to read stuff, and the problem has been there for a while now.

    thanks
