Book 16, Starmist Sea – Chapter 32, The Might of a Sovereign

“There really are scryer recordings?” Linley couldn’t help but be interested.

Ever since he had found out that those so-called recordings of experts doing battle served as a trap, Linley had doubted whether or not Castle Hendsey had scryer recordings or not. But from Castle Master Mosi’s words, it seemed as though there really were such things.

“You’ll know once you go take a look, right?” Mosi said mysteriously.

Castle Hendsey. Underground. Within a mysterious, wide throne room. The two sides of the throne rooms had quite a few bookshelves, only the bookshelves didn’t have books on them. Instead, they had many fist-sized crystal balls.

Linley and Mosi were currently in the throne room.

“There are a total of 1628 crystals here, each one of which contains a scryer recording.” Mosi said leisurely. “In addition, the crystal balls all have introductions and explanations regarding the battle and the techniques used.”

Linley, staring at the many crystals balls stored on the bookshelves, couldn’t help but stare with shining eyes. These were all scryer recordings of ultimate experts doing battle.

“In this first room, most of the recordings are those of peak Seven Star Fiends doing battles. There are also recordings of Asuras and Purgatory Commanders doing battle. As for the scryer recording of a Sovereigns showing their might…” Mosi pointed to a corner of the room, where a rectangular pillar was located which had a glowing gemstone placed at the very top of the pillar. “The scryer recordings of Sovereigns are located there, within that pillar. The pillar is hollow. You can open it like a door.”

Linley couldn’t help but take a deep breath to calm himself down.

Good heavens. Recordings of Sovereigns showing their might? He had only heard legends of Sovereigns, but had never ever seen one. Everyone said that the might of a Sovereign was inviolable, but who knew exactly how powerful a Sovereign was?

“I’ll start from the Seven Star Fiend battles.” Linley walked over to the bookshelves.

After walking forward, Linley discovered that on the surface of every single crystal ball that was placed on a bookshelf had two names recorded down.

“This is to simplify the process of finding the recordings one wants to watch.” Mosi walked over and said with a laugh.

“Understood.” Linley swept the racks of bookshelves and the dozens of crystal balls, then suddenly his gaze fell upon a crystal ball which had several names atop it: ‘Bloodviolet Fiend’ dueling the ‘Ironleaf Fiend’!

“Bloodviolet Fiend?” Linley immediately drew closer.

This crystal ball contained scryer recordings within. One could use divine power to cause the scryer recordings within the crystal ball to emerge from it and appear in mid-air. That way, multiple people could watch at the same time. However, a person could also use his divine sense directly enter the crystal ball, which would make the watching process extremely fast.

Linley immediately filled the crystal ball with his divine sense…

In a desolate desert, thousands of people were battling everywhere, while in mid-air, two people were staring at each other. One of them was completely covered in black scale armor, with long black hair that glowed with a blue light.

The other person had a long violet robe, long violet hair, and a violet longsword in his hand. The familiar figure was one which Linley had seen long ago.

“It really is him. The Bloodviolet Fiend!” When Linley had first used his divine sense to enter Bloodviolet, he had seen many different images, and the primary subject of every single image was this person. But only now was Linley completely, 100% certain.

“That longsword is Bloodviolet!”

Only today was Linley completely convinced and certain that the original owner of his Bloodviolet sword was the legendary figure, the ‘Bloodviolet Fiend’.

There was no sound at all from the battle scene, only the images recorded down.

The Ironleaf Fiend and the Bloodviolet Fiend both specialized in speed. Linley just saw two experts instantly transform into two blurry shadows. Wherever the Ironleaf Fiend passed by, space itself began to emit a strange, rippling spatial vibration. When looking at all the vibrations at once, they actually formed a flower that was blooming.

A devilish violet light was repeatedly flashing.

“Whoosh!”

A ray of violet light filled the skies, and the spatial ripple flower transformed into two halves, and many spatial cracks appeared.

Only now did the Ironleaf Fiend’s body grow clearly visible, and he dropped down from the skies, while the Bloodviolet Fiend’s expression didn’t change at all.

“These two people were all terrifyingly fast. The Bloodviolet Fiend’s sword attacks are much more powerful than even Learmonth and Boslo. When he strikes, he shows no traces of his actions at all, and the power is tremendous. He doesn’t need to build up his power at all.” Linley could just barely understand the intricacies of this battle.

Just from the scryer recordings, he could tell that the Bloodviolet Fiend’s material attacks were tremendously powerful! Far greater than the material attacks of those other Seven Star Fiends which Linley had seen.

After the recording was completed, there was some information regarding this battle.

“This explanation is quite detailed.” Linley, after reading it, sighed in praise. This explanation actually gave a detailed explanation of the techniques used by both people. Only now did Linley understand: “So the Bloodviolet Fiend is actually most powerful in the Way of Destruction.”

Linley opened his eyes.

“How do you feel?” Mosi, seated on a distant chair, laughed as he looked at Linley. “There are many Seven Star Fiends, but the weakest of them have fused four profound mysteries. The most powerful are comparable to the Asuras of the Infernal Realm or the Commanders of Purgatory.”

“Very powerful.” After seeing the explanation of this battle, only now did Linley understand how frightening the Bloodviolet Fiend was.

If he were to encounter the Bloodviolet Fiend, he would most likely be finished.

“The Bloodviolet Fiend is extremely famous, and his power is more than enough to compete against most Asuras of the Infernal Realm or Commanders of Purgatory. His accomplishments in the Way of Destruction are at a very high level, and he is also a Soul Mutate. He truly is powerful.” Mosi shook his head and sighed. “Unfortunately, this astonishing, dazzling figure went to a material plane ten thousand years ago and was killed.”

In his heart, Linley knew that the Bloodviolet Fiend was killed in his own homeland.

“Could it be that Lord Beirut was the one to kill him?” Linley wondered to himself.

Linley didn’t over-think things. He seized the opportunity to immediately go watch the scryer recordings of other experts doing battle. They included the Bloodviolet Fiend, the Royalwing Fiend, the Bluejacket Fiend, the Silvermoon Fiend…

Aside from these, there were also scryer recordings of ultimate Deity-level experts from other Higher Planes engaging in battle.

Asuras of the Infernal Realm, Commanders of Purgatory…scryer recordings of figures at this level.

“There’s even a scryer recording of Reisgem engaging in battle.” Linley didn’t recognize virtually any of the figures who did battle, so when he saw Reisgem’s, he was naturally delighted.

The scryer recording had ‘Reisgem’ in a human form. He looked like a very handsome youth, quite similar with Bebe. Only, Reisgem’s entire body was covered in an amethyst armor, and in battle he relied on his hands and feet.

Clean and blunt. The Gravitational Space formed from violet light which Reisgem used was far more powerful than Linley’s.

“So powerful.” Linley stared, slack-jawed.

Another Purgatory Commander was fighting Reisgem, but the battle was one-sided.

Linley watched nearly a thousand scryer recordings, finally arriving at the pillar at the corner of the throne room. Pulling open the pillar ‘door’, he saw that inside, there were three memory crystals.

“You only need to see a single one of these three crystal balls.” Mosi finally stood up and walked over, laughing. “The three crystal balls are all recordings of a Sovereign dealing with a Highgod, and the technique they used in each is essentially the same.”

“Understood.” Linley took a deep breath, then sent his divine sense into the first crystal ball.

It was a vast, endless sea. In the air above, there was a black-robed middle-aged man. This person was currently laughing with his head raised towards the skies, but tears were streaming down his face. His lips were moving, as though he was saying something.

The strange thing was…

In the air above the sea, a blurry, enormous face appeared, which was completely formed from elemental essence.

The black-robed man immediately pointed angrily at the enormous face, his lips moving nonstop.

A hint of annoyance passed through that enormous face, and its lips moved slightly. The black-robed middle-aged figure’s body trembled, and then he fell down from the skies, while the enormous face vanished.

“That’s it?” Linley looked at the explanation for this scryer recording. “And that black-robed figure was an Asura of the Infernal Realm?”

Linley withdrew his divine sense from the crystal ball, his mind still numb.

“That enormous face was a Sovereign?” Linley turned to look at Mosi.

Mosi nodded. “Right.”

“All the Sovereign had to do to kill an Asura of the Infernal Realm was just move his lips?” Linley felt that this was simply too incredible.

Mosi sighed. “The Will of a Sovereign is inviolable. Even someone as powerful as an Asura, with but a thought by a Sovereign, will be easily killed. In front of a Sovereign, even the most powerful of Highgods will be unable to resist.”

Linley couldn’t help but be astonished.

Not being a Sovereign, Linley couldn’t understand how Sovereigns could be so powerful.

Kill an Asura with just a thought?

“The might of a Sovereign is irresistible.” Linley said to himself.

Compared to those countless Deities, Sovereigns were high and above them, capable of effortlessly killing any Highgod.

“Sovereigns are very remote and distant from us. As long as you do not anger Sovereigns, they won’t lower themselves to kill you.” Mosi laughed.

Linley nodded slightly. After having viewed so many scryer recordings, Linley was quite stunned. After calming himself, Linley said, “Lord Mosi, I’ve disturbed you for so long. I should return now. I truly am grateful to you.”

Mosi laughed and nodded.

Linley suddenly thought of something, and he couldn’t help but laugh awkwardly. “Lord Mosi, there’s one last thing.”

“Oh?” Mosi furrowed his forehead.

“During that battle at Miluo Island, I promised Bakwill to serve as a red-robed elder for a hundred years, and that I wouldn’t leave the island without his permission. But I truly long for my homeland and want to go back sooner…” Linley continued to explain.

The next day. The Bagshaw clan’s estate. Linley’s residence. Currently, Linley and Uriah were walking towards the gates of the estate.

“Elder.” Two guards at the side of the gate to the resident immediately bowed respectfully.

Linley instructed, “Go to the island guard’s residential area and have Tarosse, Dylin, and Dylin’s two children come over.” This guard had gone last time, so he knew exactly where Tarosse lived.

“Yes, elder.” The guard immediately left.

“Mr. Uriah, sorry to trouble you.” Linley turned and laughed.

“It’s no trouble.” Uriah was very courteous as well.

After Linley returned from the underwater Castle Hendsey to Miluo Island, he had brought Uriah with him. Uriah’s was on official orders from the master of Castle Hendsey to order Bakwill to permit Linley to leave.

“Linley, then I’ll go speak with clan leader Bakwill now.” Uriah immediately left.

Just as Linley entered his residence, he saw Bebe, Delia, Olivier, Cesar, and the others all come welcome him.

“Boss, did you just say we are about to leave?” Bebe was the first to run over.

Linley looked at Bebe, Delia, and his friends. Although he had only gone one or two days without seeing them, during the past two days, he had walked to and from the brink of death, and had learned many secrets in the process.

“Yes. We are about to leave.” Linley laughed as he rubbed Bebe’s head.

“Delia.” Linley turned to look at Delia.

“If it weren’t for the fact that the master of Castle Hendsey was giving face to that juvenile amethyst beast, I probably really would have been done for.” As he thought of this, he couldn’t help but tremble. Linley couldn’t help but immediately pull Delia into his arms, tightly holding her.

“Linley?” Delia asked softly. She could tell that Linley seemed to be in a strange mood.

“I missed you.” Linley said softly. Delia’s face couldn’t help but turn red, and she said softly, “Olivier and Cesar and them are all here.” Linley released Delia. Seeing her bashfulness, he couldn’t help but begin to laugh loudly.

Sequeira was walking alongside the road. When he arrived at the gate to Linley’s residence, he heard the loud laughter coming from within.

“Oh, that Linley’s back?” Sequeira recognized Linley’s voice, and then he chuckled. “He was so arrogant in front of me. But in the end, hasn’t he become just another dog for my Bagshaw clan?” Sequeira, as the young master of his clan, knew that those red-robed elders were all under soul control.

Sequeira immediately entered Linley’s resident.

The guards at the door didn’t dare to bar Sequeira’s path.

Linley was currently laughing and chatting with Delia, Bebe, Olivier, and the others.

“Linley.” A voice suddenly rang out. Linley turned to look. The newcomer was Sequeira.

Sequeira raised his jaw slightly, and with a cold laugh, flipped out his blood-red Miluo Insignia. “See this?”

Linley was puzzled.

“Blood-red colored Miluo Insignia. What of it?” Linley said, puzzled. This time, the master of Castle Hendsey had given him a great deal of face, and had satisfied every request he had made. Linley didn’t want to cause any more problems with this Sequeira.

“Come here!” Sequeira said coldly.

Frowning, Linley walked over.

“Kneel.” Sequeira shouted.

Linley’s face couldn’t help but turn dark.

“In the name of the blood-red colored Miluo Insignia, I order you to kneel.” Sequeira shouted with cold fierceness. “Hurry.” In the Bagshaw clan, the red-robed elders who had been controlled served, above all others, the master of the castle. After that, they would obey holders of the blood-red colored Miluo Insignia.

Currently, Sequeira just wanted to thoroughly humiliate Linley. As for killing Linley?

He wouldn’t do that. As he saw it, Linley was now an obedient dog for his clan. How could he bear to kill him?

“Sequeira, what are you doing?” Linley felt that this was absolutely ridiculous.

“You dare disobey?” Sequeira was enraged. Nobody whose soul had been controlled had ever dared to disobey the blood-red colored Miluo Insignia.

“You have brain damage.” Bebe immediately shouted angrily.

“Sequeira!” Suddenly, a furious shout rang out.

Sequeira turned his head and saw his father, ‘Bakwill’, currently walking over alongside Uriah. Sequeira immediately walked over and said angrily, “Father, that Linley actually dares to disobey my orders. He needs to be properly punished.”

“Shut your mouth!” Bakwill was so furious, his face was turning red.

Sequeira was stunned.

Bakwill immediately turned to look at Linley, squeezing out a smile. “Mr. Linley, over the past few days in this place, I haven’t been a very good host. I’m truly sorry.” Hearing these words, Sequeira stared, slack-jawed.

“Father, why are you…” Sequeira didn’t understand.

Why the need to be so courteous to a completely devoted person whose soul had been dominated?

“Shut your damn mouth!” Bakwill shouted angrily.

After Uriah had conveyed the order, Bakwill and Uriah had chatted in detail. Bakwill now understood that Linley’s status was truly extraordinary. If Linley was simply a mere descendant of the Four Divine Beasts clan, his ancestor, Lord ‘Mosi’, definitely wouldn’t have stayed his hand.

“Father, I…” Sequeira was completely lost.

“WHAP!” Bakwill launched a vicious slap directly on Sequeira’s face. “I told you to shut your damn mouth!” This slap from Bakwill finally brought Sequeira to his senses. Sequeira immediately stood off to one side, not daring to make another sound.

“Mr. Bakwill, no need to be like this.” Linley now could guess that Sequeira had probably taken him for someone who had been spiritually controlled.

Bakwill forced out a smile. “Linley, my son sometimes is so arrogant as to consider everyone else beneath him. It’s only proper that he be disciplined on occasion. Linley, I’ve already learned everything from Uriah. Alas. You haven’t even stayed here at my place for more than a few days, but you are already going to leave. What a true pity.”

“There’s nothing I can do. I really do have something I must be doing.” Linley said.

“Fine, then. I won’t try to further dissuade you from leaving, Mr. Linley. Mr. Linley, you can leave whenever you wish…but of course, if you ever return to my place, my Miluo Island welcomes you at all times.” Bakwill said in a very friendly manner.

“Definitely, definitely.” Linley laughed.

Linley suddenly turned his head, and he saw that Tarosse, Dylin, and Dylin’s two sons were currently walking over. Tarosse and Dylin, upon seeing Linley, were overjoyed and embarrassed. Their emotions were extremely complicated right now.

They wanted to say something, but with Bakwill present, they didn’t know what to say for now.

“Haha, Dylin, Tarosse!” Linley immediately laughed and walked over. “No need to say too much. It is all over now!”

“Right. It’s all over now.” Tarosse and Dylin had unshed tears in their eyes. They had been under soul control, but now they had regained their freedom. This freedom which they had lost then regain would cause even the toughest of men to feel emotional. What’s more, they knew that the reason why they had regained their freedom was due to Linley.

“Haha, let’s go. It’s time to head out!”

Linley stared into the distant southeastern skies. “Indigo Prefecture…time to go back!”

  1. IMHO Bebe has been missing in action a bit lately. I hope IET lets the little rat cut loose sometime soon. With all his wealth he should be looking to buy his own drop of Sovereign might. (Linley has a spare…and we know the stuff can be bought).

    How many Highgods and seven star fiends could a supersized Godeater Rat eat? The world needs an answer!

    1. I believe for now, none. Bebe can be relative super weak against strong highgods. He had a hard time to deal with a Seven-Star Fiend (Forgot his Name, the Master of Phusro). He only have limited use godsparks than are incomparable weaker than a Sovereign’s Might. So yeah, since the end of Amethyst Mountain arc i dare to say that Linley got a huge power-up and the gap between the Lazy one of training and the All-time Genius got bigger.
      I think for now, we will see Linley and Bebe shinning in different levels of fights. Unless Bebe started to fuse ‘profund misteries’ as well and will be revealed later. But there’s also the sad possibility that the author slow his grow and sidekick him to the same position of the story as Delia, Oliver, O’brien and Dylin.
      Its kinda sad to see once powerfull people get sidekicked because of a genius monster like Linley and Lomio (That i think will join next chapter to the crew as Olivier Rival replacement). I hope this doesnt happen often in the storyline.

      1. Once Bebe becomes a High-god it won’t matter at all how many mysteries he’s fused, he’ll just one-shot anyone. He has pretty much the most powerful ability possible.

        1. Beirut regretted that he didnt fused the mysteries before reaching highgod when he advised Linley about doing this for fast power-up. If Bebe commits the same error that Beirut did in the past Zillions years ago it would be kinda lame.
          The ability he have may have restrictions/weakness that wasnt revealed yet otherwise it would be that Beirut one-shot killed Bloodvioled Fiend when he descend to the Yulan Continent. Forgive my bad grammar =/

          1. Beirut had probably give Bebe few advices like Linley. It’s weird if he give only some advices to Linley 😛

          2. Yeah, I agree. Probably Beirut advised Bebe about not hasty pursue Highgod status and focus in fuse mysteries. But like Xenaca said, he’s too lazy and unmotivated to train. So, i dont know. The author might sidekick him due to the slow paced grow he is right now or surprise us with a plot armor motivation BS power-up to balance his powers with Linley and Lomio. Otherwise he will stay with Delia, Olivier, Dylin, Cesar and Wargod fighting secondary enemies and etc..I

          3. All that needs to be done is place his girl in a perilous situation, light some heroic motivation to get strong enough to save her.

            only, Linley would go save her in Bebes stead if it came to that 🙁

          4. I have the feeling that Beirut for instance can’t eat powerful experts like the bloodviolet fiend or possibly even people not a considerate amount weaker then him. But it’s still an op ability even later in the story because I think the main strength is that eating divine cores of other people even if there weaker then you gives them a lot of strength. And also another strength of the power is that even if you aren’t strong enough to take someones divine core you can still do what Bebe did and use it to stun them for a moment and then you can get an advantage in a fight.

        2. Not really, i guess that he needs to be overall at least on par or slightly weaker than his target, or his ability will not work. Otherwise it would be too ridiculous ~~

          1. Yep, that can be a valid restriction for his ability, rather then when he reachs highgod he became invincible and can eat everyone.

          2. I also think there is a weakness on the ability. Distance perhaps? Or a strong Soul resistance to avoid it?
            I dont imagine Beirut vs Bloodviolet Fiend fight going so lame as he use his ability and its over, since they have on par powers. And I remember reading Beirut saying something like: “These guys are nothing compared with Bloodviolet Fiend.” It means it was a tough exciting fight they had 10k years ago. So even oponents on par with Beirut power dont fall so easy to this BS ability. So surely has a obvious weakness that can be deal with it quite easy and avoid it.

          3. It has been established that distance is a good defence against the god eater.

            Soul Protective artifact might give a defence against it, but i don’t know… if all it takes is a soul protection artifact, the ability that makes them fearful will be pretty useless late into the story, sort of like the divine beastclans transformation without the buffs, or if all you needed was a special stone to stop their transformation

            (yeah, it took me some time to accept that if it’s not really worth the risk of losing the original body by fighting with the saintbody using powerchannel for the tailattack. Except possibly for combo pinball style fighting)

  2. Thanks

    Last chapter, look like I was wrong about purgatory commanders were related to realm of death. Who can blame me with the name Purgatory.

    Guess this confirms Gem-Gem mom as Sovereign.

    If Sovereigns were so almighty, I wonder how Beirut stole the Sovereign sparks of the 4 divine beast to put in NotG?
    A few chapters ago, there was a discussion on how Evil Sovereign killed the 4 divine beast sovereigns, as noted by coiling dragon ring. the sparks are in NotG, most likely put there by Beriut.
    If Beriut stole the sparks, how is he alive?
    If not, how did Sparks end up in NotG?

    1. I should re-read that chapter about the divine beast sovereign spark being stolen by Beirut and placed in the necropolis of the gods. Can you tell me where that was said? As far as I recall, a sovereign spark is just a rumor and the Linley felt that something was calling him in NotG on a undetermined higher floor.

      1. Nice recall i didnt remember that. It makes sense that is a Sovereign Spark of one of de 4 Divine Beast Clan Sovereign, the previous owner of the CD that got killed. Probably when Linley becomes a Paragon he will go claim it and fight Beirut (the last guardian of the Necropolis, like he claimed to be) to have it. It will be a awesome fight, if it happens. ^_^

          1. Makes sense. But it could be a Water Sovereign Spark, based on the theories and speculations of who it could belong to and in that case i dont know if would be useful for her.
            If Linley achieve a Highgod Water clone its possible for him to use it. Speculations.. Speculations..

      2. We know there is a Sovereign spark there because Beirut guaranteed it. As for from whom that spark comes from, as far as I know, it’s all speculation.

    2. Well, I’d like to see that broken down with sources in more detail, I’m not sure the divine spark in the NotGs is from the Divine Beasts clan (I’m not saying it isn’t, just don’t remember that being said).

      As for how the spark ended up there, remember Beirut is a Sovereign emissary. He most likely didn’t take the spark at all, but rather was given it and instructed to place it at the Necropolis.

      1. Most likely, Beirut can easily kill many deities and take their divine sparks.. don’t really need the Four Divine Beasts Clan here >.>

        (By the way, Linley ancestor is a divine beast? Maybe the baptism is related to a innate divine ability of his race?)

        1. Oh, I meant Sovereign spark actually. People have been saying a lot of things about a Four Divine Beasts clan’s Sovereign on the comments, but I’m honestly left out of the loop there.

          Anyhow, about the Four Divine Beasts clan, I assume it will all be made clear on the next book.

      1. See discussion a few chapters ago.
        Rather, the I think it was 2 chapters it was confirmed the war 10k years ago on Yulan plan was related to the 4 divine beast clan. Before, we just knew 4 divine beast us related to the NotG.

        And Sovereign being leader of the divine beast clans and killed by evil sovereign, that known by coiling dragon ring.

        1. That’s quite flimsy. What is the guarantee the creator of the ring even died? Beirut has a Sovereign artifact and he is not a Sovereign. If you found his damaged staff somewhere, does that mean Beirut died? In fact, Beirut isn’t a good example because we know there is a Sovereign behind him. But, do we know for sure there ever has been a Sovereign behind the Four Beasts clan? I don’t think so.

          Your guess may be right, but right now it really is just conjecture.

          1. Based on the description and how rare soul-protecting artifact are.

            Said there 2 cases since they are specially made for others others then maker to have one.
            2) permission given by maker, which is Bebe
            1) It is damaged and created died like Linley.
            If the soul-protecting artifact is damaged, the soul is most likely damaged, and strong soul attack past the Def usually mean instant death.

            Besides, CDR did say the user died.

  3. I’m beginning to think that the person detaining reisgem at Amethyst mountain was a sovereign considering he also was talking through a head formed from the environment. I also doubt how any highgod is capable of imprisoning a near peak highgod like gem-gem. (Looks behind. Phew… he’s not here)

    Also, if that is the case, then a sovereign from the redbud continent seemed to be indebted to the 4 divine beast clan from the bloodridge continent. It seems to hint at the former power of the divine beast clan. Even if he weren’t a sovereign, he might have been a paragon, in that case my reasoning still applies.

    1. Most likely a Sovereign. 2 reasons: because that is the obvious hint the author wanted to drop and only a Sovereign has authority to command Reisgem.

      1. The reason why I didn’t rule out paragon is because there was supposed to be one sovereign in each continent. It would be pretty weird for a sovereign of redbud continent to be at amethyst mountain considering it is controlled be those 5 clans and the sovereign has more areas where he has much more degree of control.

        This could all be overruled by a likely possibility that the sovereign can be almost everywhere in his own plane or territory. If that’s the case, then there is a likely possibility is at some point, a sovereign started to pay close attention to Linley.

        1. This is going off into conjecture land, but… the way I look at it, Sovereigns really do have the ability to “materialize” anywhere at will. That goes back to the way they just “appear” there out of elemental essence. Paragons are already probably capable of really fast movement through elemental essence (think Worldwalking + Essence of the Earth), so would it be really strange for a Sovereign to be capable of “soul projection” over essence? I guess that’s the most basic capability they have.

          Now, given that, I wonder if the Sovereign of Redbud continent really was the one who appeared there. IIRC, he’s a Destruction Sovereign, so how did he appear out of Earth elemental essence? That’s possibly a fault with my interpretation of things.

          Anyway, I think the author wanted to strongly hint that he was a Sovereign with his appearance, to the extent I would be surprised if he weren’t.

        2. Well, there is one Sovereign of the Laws of Destruction on each continent.

          That doesn’t rule out Sovereigns of other Laws living in the Infernal plane too, especially considering that the Sovereigns of the 7 Elements may have other divine clones so would benefit from living in one of the 4 super planes as training time is quicker for all PM’s there.

  4. Thanks Ren and Donors for the chapter~~
    I hope they clarify what happened with Cecily. They didn’t really say if she died or not, did they?
    Cesar needs to take her back and go with Linley and everyone else to Indigo Palace!

  5. I think that Linley will train on the journey with all the insights he gained from the fight and the battles he watched in the recordings. To leave as soon as possible was to be more at ease as to stay on this island could be still dangerous…..maybe Mosi could change his mind and claim Oliver and Tarosse and Daylin are surely happy to leave this place. That is said in regard to all the comments about that he wasn’t training immadiately.

    I’m happy about this outcome but I still don’t like the Bakshaw clan, to enlave the minds of all this experts doesn’t feel right to me. I don’t care if they would be killed in a fight but to be forced to serve for eternity is a fate I don’t wish anyone. Especially when there is such a person as young master Sequeira who sees this people as dogs….don’t wanna know on how many female Deyties he layed his hands…..he should die!!!

  6. Yes! Finally getting on to meeting his clan. It’s hilarious to think that usually people from his divine beasts clan aren’t very strong until they undergo their baptism thing, yet Linley is a God with the power of a 6 star Fiend.

    1. “Master, who is this core member of the clan I’ve never met?”
      “Hi, I’m Linley. I’ve heard there is this ‘baptism’ thing you guys have?”

      1. I;d rather see Linley saving a group of people from his clan on the way to Indigo Palace ^.^ His arrival needs to be astonishing! xD Hope he becomes Highgod before he arrvies there ~~

          1. There is no ‘time for necropolis’ at all. For strong people Beirut opens it when they wish…

      1. We will finally know if this baptism just raises your affinity for Water element, as dead (probably) Sovereign begind Four Divine Beasts clan was Water-Type Sovereign ~~ It would all make sense, then 🙂

        1. Do you mind telling me why this ‘Sovereign backing theory’ has become so popular? Or am I just not remembering things that I should? If this is about the ring, why can’t it be scavenged from some random Sovereign or something?

          1. A – Owner of CD ring died and was a water-type Sovereign (Drops of Sovereign Might from it were Water Type, and also ring had special energy benefiting member of Dragonblood clan)
            B – He died 10 000 years ago (probably? Time when Dohering got this ring) just when Divine Beasts clan lost it’s power.
            C – It was hinted that Divine Beasts clan’s baptism has something to do with Water element before.

            It all leads to this guess that we have ~~

          2. A – I don’t know of any evidence that the original owner of the ring was killed and even if he were, that doesn’t really mean anything. As for drops of Sovereign’s Might, it only means the owner was quite powerful. In fact, why would a Sovereign carry drops of Sovereign’s Might around anyway? That kind of artifact is more likely a gift from a Sovereign to someone than something a Sovereign would keep for himself.

            B – Why 10.000 years and not more? Also, wouldn’t that mean a Sovereign came down to the Yulan plane and did battle? Wouldn’t that imply the whole plane should have been destroyed?

            C – Indeed, there is a “coincidence” there. But that doesn’t really imply much outside of point A.

            You could be right, but I’m still holding off judgement on that. I believe next volume will make it all clear though. Thanks.

          3. Forgot which chapter but the image? of the previous /original owner appear to linley, talking about the ring thing. That’s how he know that the ring was damaged.

          4. not really a spoiler just info.

            if one was born in the yulan continent and became a sovereign in another realm that one being could still enter his homeland realm because he was born there.

            or for short a sovereign can enter the realm he was born in without destroying it.

            why? idk CD logic

          5. YDM i believe there was a chapter where it was said that soul protecting artifact becomes damaged once its owner dies. Since CD ring is damaged, its safe to say that the owner died.

  7. Finally! We’ve been teased with divine beasts clan and the ancestral rite (or whatever it was called) for a few volumes now. Hopefully it lives up.

  8. The controlling power of soul seeds is really terrifying… you act exactly the same as you normally would except that you obey every command given to you by your controller without question.
    Imagine the chaos if all the controlled Highgods suddenly stopped being controlled…?
    The Bagshaw clan is actually in a sort of precarious position when you think about it this way.
    Anyhoo… on to the Bloodridge Continent!!

      1. kind of daring of Mois to directly invite any strong person to his lair, if one of them actually managed to kill him, all of his descendants would get killed pretty much immediately, since like 90 % of all of the true protectors of the clan have ample reason to want to kill them if they ever break lose from the mind control

  9. I think there are still dangers on the way to Indigo Palace. Remember nephew of Sabista (a couple volume ago) reported back to his clan. His clan will be sure to make preparation to kill Linley

    1. well the chance of Linley rejuvenate his clan is high. Sure, sabista’s clan pay no mind to the nephew, but they still question him about why sabista was dead. They was on a mission to collect NoTG treasures after all. Linley would pop up in the conversation and they would certainly be interested in Linley’s high potential growth. Eliminating him early is good for them

  10. Ren, I love wuxiaworld, and I know you need to have ads to get money for the site,but I think constant unblockable pop ups like Smartmoneytime are too much.
    Sorry for the rant.

    1. kabir0399, there should be ZERO popups; Wuxiaworld will NEVER have popups here, and popups are completely against the terms of service of any of these ad networks. Is this on desktop or is it on mobile? If it is on mobile, try clearing your cache to get rid of it, as that is a virus. If it is on desktop, let me know as well and I will immediately raise the issue and let our advertisers know that they have a bad ad somewhere. Also, whether on mobile or desktop, can you screenshot it and send it to me at rwxwuxiaworld(a)gmail.com? Thank you!

      1. Im getting them as well although I do not think are popups. Its more like a screen hovers in front of the text for 15-20 seconds and then disappears..

        On another notes, you have been regularly releasing 2 chapters a day, is this the new release rate? I keep checking into the site on the off chance a 3rd chapter is released..

        Thanks for another great chapter..!

        1. fark, I got it. Ugh! I’ll hunt it down and resolve it.

          Yes, I’m moving to Vietnam next month, so weekends are down to two chapters for now. Once I get in country and un-jetlagged, I should be back to three chapter weekends! 🙂

  11. I have a question that i would really love to have answered. If Linley was to be soul dominated would Bebe have noticed seeing as how they have Soul Contract/Bond of equals. Leading to that, if Lord Beirut figures out this lord Commander Mosi’s identity and fight who would win?

  12. Again Linley gets lucky thanks to misunderstandings in his relationship with others. He sin’t actually friends with Reisgem but because of the his gravity power that resembles Reisgems Mosi thinks that he must be a person favored by Reisgem.

  13. I just gained an insight! I haven’t read the comments so I dont know if this has been said already.

    1. The Coiling Dragon Ring is a Sovereign artifact. It being damaged means that he died. The ring being in the Yulan Continent meant that the Sovereign might have died there.

    2. The Sovereign that’s behind Beirut might be the same Sovereign.

    3. Linley hears a calling at the Necropolis of the Gods. This must be the Sovereign who was the owner of the ring!

    1. 1. sovereign could not have died in yulan continent since if the sovereign actually entered it, the whole plane would have been finished

      2. maybe

      3. well, how can a linley hear a calling from someone who is dead. Unless, we assume that sovereign’s true original body materialized after he died and he is on one of the higher floors of notg.

      At this point though, we know too little about sovereigns

  14. This chapter 32 and chapter 31 are the most terrifiying chapter in all chapter i have read till now. Even sovereign drop is not effective. That Lord Mosi is terrifying as hell. If I am in that situation, *brr*…
