Book 13, Gebados – Chapter 28, Mount Copper Gong

Within that restaurant in Hess City, everyone was in a state of shock.

The mighty Lord ‘Reger’, in front of that youngster with the straw hat, had seemed like an infant, unable to resist at all. He had been killed directly. And, from the looks of it, the youngster with the straw hat listened to the orders of the seated young man. That meant the seated young man’s power was even greater!

“They?” Belita drew near to her father, staring at Linley and Bebe in astonishment.

Linley was frowning.

“Milord, you called?” The silver-haired man was in a completely nervous state right now.

He understood that if Linley and Bebe wanted to kill him, he would definitely die.

“My Boss told you to get over here.” Bebe stared at him while barking. The silver-haired man’s body trembled slightly, and then he immediately walked over to the table, respectfully awaiting Linley’s words.

“My name is Sati [Sa’di]!” The silver-haired man honestly offered his name.

“You come from the Gebados Planar Prison?” Linley said calmly. While asking, Linley utilized his Godrealm, causing the ordinary people in the restaurant to be unable to hear their words.

“Yes, milord.” Sati was quite obedient.

After all, Reger’s body lay there on the ground. Sati understood that if either of these two fiends in front of him were unhappy, they could kill him at any moment. Right now, all he could do was to meekly accede to whatever they wanted and make them satisfied. Only in such a way would he be able to preserve his life.

Linley’s eyes grew sharp. He stared at Sati, growling, “I ask you, who is this Lord of Mount Copper Gong?”

The Lord of Mount Copper Gong!

This was someone who made Linley feel concern. Just then, before dying, Reger had said that his teacher was the Lord of Mount Copper Gong. Someone capable of being the teacher of a Prime Saint should be an extraordinary figure. Since they killed Reger, Linley had to get a clear understanding of who this Lord of Mount Copper Gong was.

“Teacher?” Sati was slightly astonished.

Linley nodded slightly.

“We don’t know Teacher’s name either. Because he lives at Mount Copper Gong, we all call him as the Lord of Mount Copper Gong.” When mentioning the ‘Lord of Mount Copper Gong’, his eyes were filled with worship. “Teacher is the most powerful expert we have ever seen.”

“Oh?” Linley’s eyes narrowed into slits.

Sati continued, “Although only twenty years have passed since we fled from the Gebados Planar Prison back to the Yulan continent, in this period of time, two of the Prime Saints whom Teacher instructed were able to break through and become Deities on their own.” Sati’s eyes were filled with respect. “Someone who can help us break through our bottlenecks…how can we not venerate a mighty expert such as him?”

“What?”

No matter how calm he was, Linley’s face couldn’t help but change.

Even the nearby Bebe couldn’t believe it. “Did you just say that those two people who recently became Deities did so due to having received instruction from your Teacher?”

Bottlenecks, being bottlenecks, were hard to break through.

Even someone as powerful as Lord Beirut, knowing that Desri and the others were at a bottleneck, only told them to have more faith in themselves. He didn’t say anything else…someone capable of instructing a Prime Saint in how to break through a bottleneck was definitely an expert who had a terrifying mastery of the Laws.

“What level expert is this Lord of Mount Copper Gong?” Linley immediately asked.

“I don’t know.” Sati shook his head. “However, Teacher’s two brothers should be Gods.”

Linley and Bebe exchanged glances.

His brothers were Gods? Then the Lord of Mount Copper Gong should at least be a God as well.

“I’ve created trouble.” Bebe hung his head as he looked at Linley.

He had killed the disciple of such a powerful expert. No matter how brash Bebe could be, he understood the magnitude of the trouble he had caused.

Linley laughed consolingly. “Bebe, it seems our journey will have to be cut short.” After having offended such a powerful foe, they had to hurry back to Dragonblood Castle.

“Right.” Bebe nodded.

“Milord, no need to worry.” Hearing Linley and Bebe’s words, Sati understood what Bebe was thinking. He hurriedly said, “Milords, please don’t worry. You killed Reger, but nobody will come make trouble for you.”

Linley and Bebe were somewhat startled.

“Oh?” Linley looked at him, waiting for him to explain.

Bebe also said, “Sati, can it be that your Teacher won’t show his face for his disciples?”

Sati hurriedly said, “Milords, what sort of status does the Lord of Mount Copper Gong have? Reger and I are only Prime Saints. How can we become his disciples?”

“But you refer to him as Teacher?” Bebe was puzzled.

Sati laughed self-mockingly, “Milords, although we refer to the Lord of Mount Copper Gong as ‘Teacher’, that’s just how we address him. The Lord of Copper Mountain has never acknowledged us as his disciples.”

Linley frowned. “Explain in detail.”

Sati explained, “Milords, we all fled from the Planar Prison. And then, we came to live here. Only, afterwards, we heard that an ultimate expert lived in Mount Copper Gong who would occasionally give guidance to those trainees who came to him for advice. There are many experts who go pay their respects to the Lord of Mount Copper Gong. Reger and I are just two of the many. Only, because we received some tutelage from the Lord of Mount Copper Gong, we respectfully address him as Teacher. Only, the Lord of Mount Copper Gong himself has never acknowledged us as his disciples.”

“If we truly had a Teacher such as him, in the Planar Prison, we wouldn’t have been in such bad straits.”

Linley and Bebe instantly understood.

“You really are shameless.” Bebe snickered.

Sati laughed awkwardly.

“This Lord of Mount Copper Gong really is a miraculous figure.” Linley sighed in praise. An expert like this would actually give tutelage to those who came to him for instruction. At the very least, he wasn’t the selfish, self-centered type.

“Just now, you said that those two who had become Deities on their own recently did so thanks to the tutelage of the Lord of Mount Copper Gong?” Linley still felt that this was unbelievable.

“Right.” Sati sighed. “This is absolutely certain. One of them is someone I know.”

“How can we possibly not pay a visit to a miracle worker like this? Bebe, what do you think?” Linley looked at Bebe, who nodded in agreement. At the same time he turned to look at Sati. “Hey, where is Mount Copper Gong?”

“Mount Copper Gong is in the southern regions of the Holy Union. It is an area which has been taken over by many magical beasts. Teacher lives within a large mountain there.” Sati explained. “The distance from here is roughly two thousand kilometers. Milords, if you want to go, I can guide you there. It isn’t just Prime Saints who beg Teacher for guidance. There are Deities as well.”

Linley felt all the more amazed in his heart.

This Lord of Mount Copper Gong definitely was an extraordinary figure. Linley all the more wanted to see him now.

“Only, if milords go, milords need to be mentally prepared. Teacher only provides guidance if he feels like it.” Sati explained. “On our trip to Mount Copper Gong, we might have to wait a long time before being lucky enough to see Teacher.”

“If we can meet him, we shall. If we can’t, then it’ll just be an excursion.” Linley laughed calmly.

“Let’s go. Let’s go now.” Bebe was somewhat impatient.

Sati said meekly, “It is my honor to be able to lead the way for you two, milords.” Immediately, Sati led the way out of the restaurant, while Linley and Bebe followed. Linley released the Godrealm which had prevented others in the restaurant from hearing their conversation.

“The two of you…” Belita hurriedly chased afterwards, wanting to express things, but she was blocked by Linley’s Godrealm.

“Whoosh!”

Three shadows blurred through the air, quickly disappearing into the southern horizons.

“Who were those three experts? Even a Prime Saint like Lord Reger was killed in one blow.” Only now did the people in the restaurant dare to speak, while at the same time, they raised their head, staring skywards in a vain attempt to catch a vestigial glimpse of Linley and the others.”

“That youngster was too powerful. He was able to seize a Saint’s blade with his two fingers.”

“I think that young man was even more powerful…”

Everyone in the bar began to excitedly chat, while Belita stared towards the horizon, towards where Linley’s group had vanished. She, Belita, could do nothing but remember this kindness in her heart.

Mount Copper Gong was actually not too far away from Linley’s hometown of Wushan Township. It was also considered within the domain of the magical beasts.

Only, with the experts present in this location, the magical beasts did not dare to draw near.

“This is Mount Copper Gong!” In mid-air, his robes fluttering in the wind, Sati pointed down towards a mountain.

Next to him was Linley and Bebe.

“It seems there isn’t that many people present?” Linley was rather surprised. Logically speaking, based on what he understood, if many experts came to pay visits to the Lord of Mount Copper Gong, there should be many people here. However, Linley, staring down into the manor, didn’t see many people at all.

Sati explained, “Teacher’s two brothers have informed us that after receiving tutelage from Teacher, we cannot come disturb Teacher again for the next ten years.”

“Oh.” Linley understood.

After all, there were only so many experts in the Yulan continent. Not too many knew of the existence of the Lord of Mount Copper Gong. Given they weren’t to disturb him again for ten years after being given tutelage, no wonder there weren’t many people here.

“Let’s head down.” Linley was the first to fly down.

The residence of the Lord of Mount Copper Gong was a secluded, quiet manor. Linley and the others, upon arriving in front of the manor, couldn’t help but sigh in amazement.

“This residence…” Linley sensed that this residence emanated a powerful earth elemental essence aura.

Sati revealed a hint of worship in his eyes as well. “This residence was created from earth elemental essence, formed into a solid hole. If you look at the walls, you won’t see a single crack or seam. To be able to easily control earth elemental essence to create such a manor is truly incredible.”

“You don’t understand.” Linley’s face was very solemn.

“Oh?” Sati stared towards Linley in astonishment.

Linley stared solemnly at the residence in front of him. Sati was only a Prime Saint, and he didn’t train in the Laws of the Earth. Naturally, he didn’t understand how truly incredible this residence formed from earth elemental essence was. Linley, however, did.

“Be it the Sacred Earthguard Armor or the forbidden-level spell which uses earth elemental essence to create the ‘World Protector’, there is a limit to how long the creations will last for.” Linley could hardly believe it.

He believed that since someone had created this manor, they couldn’t possibly go to the trouble of recreating it every hour.

“In addition, the color of the material the earth elemental essence has formed into…” Linley stared at the ancient-looking, plain black material of the residence. “It is the color of adamantine!” Linley knew that upon reaching the Deity-level, once a person used the Sacred Earthguard Armor, it would be at the ‘adamantine’ level.

An adamantine-level Sacred Earthguard Armor couldn’t be maintained for too long.

And yet, this person used it to create an entire manor?

“Someone came again?” The gate to the manor creaked open, and a bald, muscular man glanced outwards.

That Sati immediately bowed respectfully. “I pay my respects to Lord Burgess [Bo’ji’se].”

“You again?” The bald man frowned. “Oh, that’s right. Last time was ten years ago.” After finishing, the bald man looked at Linley and Bebe, his eyes carrying a hint of curiosity as he weighed Linley and Bebe for a long while.

Linley and Bebe both bowed modestly as well.

“My third brother is inviting you two in. As for you, go rest somewhere else.” The bald man said.

“Congratulations to the two of you.” Sati wasn’t angry at all. Instead, he congratulated Linley and Bebe.

Not just anyone who came to visit the Lord of Mount Copper Gong would be received. Sati immediately bowed, then left by himself.

“Mr. Burgess?” Linley spoke.

“I really don’t know what’s going on, but my third brother wishes to meet you two. Your luck is excellent.” The bald man pursed his lips while bringing Linley and Bebe into the manor. “Listen up. When you see my third brother, you need to be a bit more respectful.”

Linley and Bebe exchanged a glance, then laughed as they glanced around at their surroundings.

This manor, completely formed from earth elemental essence, gave a very comfortable to live in aura. In addition, in the inner courtyard of this manor, there were two seemingly mild-mannered middle-aged men engaging in chatter and laughter.

“I wonder which one of the two is the Lord of Mount Copper Gong?” Linley’s gaze rested upon these two people.

    1. are u talking about Ren???
      <.<
      ….
      *whisper* he's a she you know! …..wait that doesn't sound right. ummmm…. let's say it like this, what you think as 'he' is actually a 'she'……hmmm that's better! 🙂 *runs away*

  1. Thanks for the chapter

    Mount Copper Gong should be a high god, as to help people with their bottle necks, they need to be experienced in multiple laws.
    I’m assuming he is also a element high god.

    On a side topic of high gods, what are the chances Bluefire also escaped? Too many plot mentions that there no way he didn’t escape. That and it would be weird that only 1 of the high god decided to stay in the Yulan plan….
    Pretty sure other other high god escaped, and they would have the same desire for NotG as Akins.
    Though, they may not have to want an an empire. For example, Bluefire had his area in the prison, of which should be able to gather faith energy his territory that he shouldn’t bother with a small area like the O’Brein empire.

    1. …oh good point, but then again IET just mentions side characters all the time. There was orson, hadley, the maid running from the wolves, alice, beriet , middle age man, the tongue’s worshiper, and the dark hareu from Apirl 1st. So much potential for fanfiction.

      P.S It would help if they were in glossary. 😉

      1. There are a lot of side characters but honestly most of them were major characters at the time of their appearance but Linley just outpaced them to the point where they got left behind. xD

        1. Pretty sure a High God with the status of one of the 1 kings won’t be outpaced by Linley, until Linley reaches Sovereign level.

          Kinda like how we know of Beruit way before he became personally involved, and we know he will always be part of the story.

      1. Maybe, but no epic hypes unlike for Beirut yet. Maybe in a few chapters, I might of a Sovereign possiblity, but seems weird if he was a sovereign to take interest in this plane.

        Beirut, on the other hand, has reason to stay on this plane.
        No additional info on sovereign, so not discussion that this time.

    1. What honoR
      Much blessings
      Such Splendor
      To find the legendary Lord eGod Doge-nim’s high priest!
      His Glory is boundless, spread across the TheGamer-LMS-WuxiaWorld multiverse!

  2. Okay, taking bets now. Who is this expert?

    A) The middle age man from descent of the gods

    B) The expert that went missing from the dragon warriors.

    C) Some random new character IET threw at us.

    D) Some random side character.

    E) God

    F) …something else

    1. I feel like its some random guy from Prison because honestly that where everyone comes from these days and the completely random appearance makes it seem like no one special… yet.

      1. King Bluefire? (out of the Kings, don’t think the rest will be mentioned since they were not named).

        possible, but still random speculation till the next few chapters till we know more about him.

    2. I am going with another Prison God. Most likely one of the 5 kings, but I have a feeling it is someone random from there. I believe all the people from the prison know who the 5 kings are and they would recognize him.

      1. More like the escapee know of him. He owns the city, but is more of a known legend as he hasn’t been around bluefire city and people don’t know where he is.
        Kinda like jow grandpa knew that Lord Beirut was the strongest but don’t know what he look like

    3. It’d be interesting if he was the person that could perform the ritual on the 4 Supreme warriors and make them extremely stronger; according to Sadista. Although, it’s probably not true lol. But overall, he has to be a Highgod if he has two Gods at his side. Can’t wait for the next chapter!!

    4. It’s actually Doehring Cowart! The soul that was trapped in the ring is just a part of him the original actually survived. He doesn’t have any of the memories of his other soul but continue to remain the cool dude that he is helping people and I lied. I just made all that up.

  3. For some odd reason, The One-Chisel school comes to mind when I read this chapter… Could it be… I don’t remember what happened to that guy. Did he die?

          1. I don’t know… isn’t it suspicious how many less ends there is regarding sculpturing. How else is Linley suppose to make a break though in time if not with sculpting.

    1. Made an account just to get in about this conversation 😀

      My first thought was also the straight chisel school and Doehring has kind of been forgotten about so it would be cool if the author brought Proulx into the story to be like Doehrings legacy ^^ he’s had 5000 years to get stronger and I keep having the feeling that Doehring was incredibly powerful and will be brought into things later in the story, even if its just his history

    1. Baka Tsuki started up a policy where if the website has any kind of donation or anything to make money they will not allow the site to be linked to them. A lot of sites got taken off of BT due to this.

      1. There probably got affected by the Japan politic stunt, “manga guardians” raids.The raids attacked numerous unresponsive sites while sending notice to others novel/manga/anime/file sharing. In fact, for awhile you couldn’t access baka-tuski site the normal way.

      1. So Delia can finally get one more member in her harem.
        Speaking of which, long time ago when i read about Delias harem i thought for sure that it was a joke. How wrong i was.

          1. Hey you! Don’t trash talk about Delia! She’s my other dimensional self you know! She has no such interests.Hmph!

            Thx soooo much for chapter~s, Lord Ren! 😉

            PS. and that Belili or whatever, don’t you try and get close to my other dimensional hubby! I’ll tear you to shreds!!

  4. Thanks for the Chapter Ren and PB.

    Interesting. Here comes the Earth Diety for Linley. Now he will have 2 divine clones and his main body. I wonder if he will start to train in his Fire element next or something else.

      1. Indeed it came as a pretty good opportunity for that final pulse merge. But about that fire element, i dont think he will start right now since he has so “low” efficiently in fire. He would getting a bigger spike in power if he would stay in path right now.
        Or so would i think.

        1. his visualization ability is far greater after absorbing the soul essences, so he should be able to train in fire laws even faster than he originally trained in earth laws. his fire affinity is average, not low, so he won’t have to start from the bottom either. he can already use fire spells.

          1. Either fire or destruction will be his next element. I’m thinking he’s going to use fire next too.

        2. It wasn’t a low efficiency but an average one compare to his excellent one. He still knows some fire magic. Recall him camping in the words in his earlier years. Nevertheless, I see your point. I am simply just rambling.

          1. lol he doesn’t know fire magic, he can only manipulate fire essence on a basic level, in the past he was only making camping fires

          2. Yes. I meant low if we would compare his fire efficiency to wind or earth. But then again when he do have his earth clone he may very well start training in fire or destruction.

        3. He doesn’t need to stay on path because he will probably just leave that one clone training.

          I wonder what will he do when he reaches Deity level with his fire clone, though… will he divide again?

    1. Honestly, the training montages are my favorite parts :)! I was also hoping that Belita would be part of the Divine Beast clans like people suspected, but it looks like she was just another woman who got Jennezoned.

  5. Linley will have a wind clone, and a earth clone and his original body which can learn the path of destruction. Then after that if he wanted he would have to train a entirely new path I think he could sense a bit of fire or maybe the path of death because he did absorb millions of souls.

    On another note once all these new experts are eliminated or have left the Baruch empire will be the last standing empire and will rule over all of Yulan. Because the high priest and the war god will be leaving for another plane.

    1. I’m hoping he can fuse his sound waves and music truths together. Eventually, when he gets a divine earth clone, I want him to fuse his divine wind and earth together. That’ll be super beast. Still, the idea of 11 Linley’s all practicing at the same time seems incredibly awesome. However, how is he going to get enough soul power to split so many times? Is he going to let another deity gather souls and steal them again or is he going to absorb deity level souls?

      1. it is impossible to absorb a deity level soul (probably unless one is wayyyyyy stronger) since dietys have their soul and body split already with the soul kinda being their real body and their body being just a shell as they can change it’s shape at will. So, i don’t think absorbing deity souls would be probably since you would have to absorb the deity whole essentially.

      2. 11 Linley is not awesome when there no fusion elements. Too many elements means less focus on making attacks epics (Velocity and pulses of the earth are epic due to the training process and attempt to explain those)

        11 would be too many, especially when there is no hints of light, darkness, lighting, Occult, Life, or Death.

        Water, Fire, Destruction, are good to split for when Linley learn to fuse Elements into a single attack like Olivier.

        1. Beirut was making his kids train in elements they weren’t good at, so I think it’s good to train in as many elements as possible. I think having a lot of elements will help him rate of growth as well because he’ll have multiple clones analyzing the depths of the elemental sea.

          1. Earth, Wind, Fire, Water, Destruction. 5/11 is quite a alot already.
            many yes, but 11 is going to be difficult for story telling purposes.

        2. there is no when for fusing different elements, only “if”

          the fusing of different elements is already highly unnatural and we only know of olivier succeeding in it.

          Linley may be the MC but he can’t do everything that everyone else can do just because he has seen someone do it. It would ake quite the event for linley to stumble on the way to fuse elements.

          1. We only know.

            but Beirut knows about fusing element into an attack as he seen it before, and implied it was just a rare event.

            Besides, I don’t think it is something stumbled upon, but rather an forced ability. Olivier seem to obtained it after his soul was injured, so fusing is related to soul being injured rather then by training?

          2. Problem solved, we just need Delia to smack Linley across the head as hard as she can and as many times needed until he’s knocked out for a month~!

        3. It’s easy to use 11 clone in the same time,
          1-Take a weapon compatible with all 11 elements.
          2-Fusion your 11 clone in one corps.
          3-Impregnate your weapon with element and laws with your clone actually in use.
          4-Switch with any other clone, (Impregnate your weapon with element and laws again)
          5-reproduce the step 4 again and again, faster and faster
          6-in the same time attack!

          roulette technique!

          1. As with above, Beirut knows about the fusing elements into a single attack, so implies Olivier is not the only one who can fuse.

            But you are right that it’ll defeat the purpose of his character.
            But what if his character is not part of the current picture. As in either he dies (not likely), or get left behind in Linley growth? Say Olivier ends at high gods, and Linley goes Sovereign level and battle Sovereign then?

          2. ofc I know Oliver isn’t the only one who fused elements and that Beirut knows that… it’s just so rare and Linley can’t have it all

          3. Why can’t Linley have it all?

            I’m talking about only fusing only after Olivier is out out of the picture, at end game.

            Besides, Linley won’t have a real rival. Dixie was his rival of sort and look what happened to him.

          4. Well, I don’t me all as in that.

            I meant all as in being able to fuse.

            Besides, he has shown interest in Fire, Water, and destruction.

        4. Do you think he will go for all 11? I am unsure if he will go for destruction and call it quits or go for fire then the other elements.

          I think destruction has to be one since it will go well with bloodviolet (I think its original owner used destruction?) and the violet devil was from the infernal realm which is also where his ancestors went, it also gives him at least 2 elements and an edict.

      1. Why did you even look at the avatar Yuzu9?
        I just saw some purple, then scrolled down at light speed using profound truths of light.

        We should add a community rule of no posting the manga in any form such as in an avatar unless it on a thread about the manga.

        1. T.T I train at element of water and edicts of death!

          we should just assassinate the person who drew the manga! where’s Cesar?? is there any Cesar disciple here???

          1. Doesn’t laws of water also have some speed mysteries as well?

            Afterall, Water is used to cut metal when it is moving 3x the speed of sound.

  6. Seriously that’s a pretty weird name though. I see a lot of interesting guesses as to his identity in these comments, but I honestly have no clue, so I won’t guess 😛

    I’m glad Sati doesn’t seem to care that his friend was just murdered by Bebe.

  7. am surprised no one mentioned the fact that reger’s soul being absorbed was not mentioned, i mean killing saint is the best case scenario when killing someone when boosting your spirit power.

    1. Does Linley know how to absorb souls? I know that the ring could help him absorb the soul essences from the orbs but does he know how to take the souls of people who die?

      Absorbing souls also feels bad… It was mentioned earlier by Doehring that people who die go to the netherworld but by absorbing their souls won’t he be messing up with the cycle of reincarnation (if there is one) or does he only take the power they have cultivated and not erase the soul entirely?

      1. Or is it like how Qin Yu from stellar transformations absorbed the “dantian” thingy? Kinda like qi centre or is it mageforce?
        Sometimes I get confused over the terminology from so many wuxia/xianxia novels 😡

        1. In stellar transformations don’t they completely destroy the soul so they can no longer be reincarnated? They always try to run away and for the loose immortals they are erased completely if they fail a tribulation so I always assumed when they destroyed their souls to absorb the yuanyings that they were completely erased.

          I may be thinking of Desolate Era but I thought that training to be an immortal went against the laws of heaven so they would lose everything if they died.
