The Godsfall Chronicles (陨神记)

陨神记

RWX’s English Synopsis: The nuclear holocaust which caused the collapse of the Old Times on Earth should have wiped out all human life on the planet.  Yes, the gods set up their beautiful Elysiums to provide sanctuaries for their chosen, but by all rights everyone outside the elysian lands should’ve perished long ago.  Yet somehow, human life still managed to persist, even in the deadly, mutant-infested wastelands.  Cloudhawk was a young scavenger who dreamed of being as free as the hawks in the skies, yet seemed destined to live out his life scrounging for scraps in the wasteland ruins.  Fate, however, is ever-fickle.  A chance meeting with a ragtag group of mercenaries changed the trajectory of his life, bringing him into a world with mutants and metahumans, demonhunters and godslayers, and even gods and demons.  Cloudhawk would find his own place in a world that was far greater than he had imagined, find his own path between the zealous light of Sumeru and the whispering darkness of the Abyss… and one day, he would find that even gods may fall.

Official Chinese Synopsis: This is a world of nirvanic rebirth, a world of marvels and illusions, a world where faith is enduring and yet ruined. This is the story of a youth who seems ordinary, but who shoulders an earth-shaking secret and burden. He shall rise to prominence from his humble roots and walk a tightrope between life and death, and be lost in deciding between what is right and what is wrong. He seeks out the truth behind the destruction of Earth’s civilizations, and shall experience unbelievable dangers as he grows. In the end, he shall discover the hidden secrets behind the ancient war between the gods and the demons, and shall play the lead role in this stunning and exciting story!

    1. From the first 20 chapters I can tell this is a great novel. I highly encourage others to read it! Its dark like the dark king and is unpredictable.

      1. OH NO WAY DUDE! im excited to read this already. Any novels translated by rwx is gold anyways. Btw fancy meeting a dark king fan here.

      1. What if that’s his plan? Wait for the binge worthy accumulation of chapters to keep him from being productive at work/school for a couple days xD.(Totally not speaking from experience…..lol

      2. lol its still on chapter 43 hahahaha i feel like some translators shouldn’t pick up more works if they are too lazy to translate them its been 2 and a half months since we have gotten only 3 chapters at first i didn’t mind it but i’m getting pissed off

      1. IGE is a really good story. I’ve read up to Chapter 250+ (or was it 150+ i’m not sure) when the translation stopped and I should say that it was a hooking story “beyond” the DOTA make-a-do part of the School Tournament. The story only gets interesting when he’s officially an officer in the Northern Pass.

        1. To be fair though,the tournament was really good (though it was very predictable huh?). The only the thing very confusing about the novel is the cultivation system. I think springs as a unit of measurement is somewhat odd. Another thing that I have a gripe with is that the main love interest is a little loli. I don’t usually mind it, but the MC is 16 and she’s 12 if I remember correctly. Though I can say that the plot is quite good. Overall though it can be a novel like War God Asura. Not too bad but not overwhelmingly good. Just my take on the novel though. Don’t knock it until you try it.

          1. Yeah, the tournament really was predictable and from the beginning… the moment it was mentioned that there was a Northern Path, Middle path, and a Western Path, I knew that it was a predictable story. I actually laughed at the reference where the place that Roshan should have been placed was actually the place where he got the Trash-Talking Glutton White Dragon.

            Perhaps one of the things that attracted me to the story was the trash-talking “stupid” glutton-white-dragon.

            That guy’s skits were hilarious!

            Oh, yeah, talking about that Loli… I seem to recall that she’s the same age as him and only had the “height” of a 12yr old. But still, the way it was put, that love interest about her and her being the Devil King was actually awkward.

            And yet, despite that, the overall story is really good. Personally, I’m hooked at its catch regarding the secrets the Dragon Tomb was able to possess. I was imagining that he’d use the Dragon Tomb to raise his own clan’s prestige someday. Now that was classic and epic catch.

            Regarding the Cultivation System… I seem to recall that there was a HIGH LIMIT with the number of spiritual springs you can unearth before proceeding. The springs are one’s foundation and the more the foundation was, the stronger you are when you ascend to the next rank of cultivation.

            Remember how the traitor genius student-slash-enemy of the story got 100 or so springs before he proceeded to the next rank? The General of the Pass, the Godly (something) Zhuo (or whatever his name was), also has the same foundation as the traitor enemy… his only disadvantage was that he was old and the enemy was young.

            What more, he was also pinned down by two forces at that time.

            Overall, i’m just waiting for it.

  1. Hey kids!
    Lets do an introductory review of this new piece!
    So far at chapter 19 this novel has shown itself to be one I feel worth following in the future. Its setting is novel (lol) and it creates characters and situations that feel interesting, human, inhuman, and vibrant. The young protagonist gives a similar sense to one from a good fantasy novel, in that he has a personality that’s youthful and rough around the edges but gives a good sense of growth as the story progresses. He has character, but not to the extent that he’s weepy or intrusive on the reader’s enjoyment of the work. There are a few Chinese tropes, such as the “secret magic amulet” and “inheritance from a departed hidden master”, and maybe even a few small fantasy novel tropes, but over all the novel feels relatively creative and interesting throughout. It maintains a good sense of tension and growth, and I thank the translator for bringing this new work to us.
    I’ll update again around chapter 50.
    Happy reading!

    1. Fun fact, I wrote this before I read the part in the introduction where RWX equated this to print-quality fantasy.
      TL;DR:
      …He’s right guys…

  2. I usually have hard time to pick new web novels, well maybe it goes for everything else but yeah this look interesting so I may pick it up soon.
    Thank you for translation it and I look forward for more of it. 😛

    1. So I was too curious to stockpile any chapters, and I’ve gotta say, read to chapter 20 and it’s really good. Like reaalllyyy good. Hope it can maintain this quality the whole novel, if it does, this could become my favorite novel on this site. I’ve been clenching my butt throughout all of these 20 chapters, and I’m really conflicted to whether i should stockpile chapters or just read them as they come out.

      Thanks for the new novel!

  3. WARNING : If you are particularly faint -hearted or you can not stand a little more gore than usual then be wary when reading this novel . If you ok this is a really good novel that you should give a shot most definitely . Friendly objective advise.

    1. RWX commented on his patreon on september 2nd that he would get back on the horse (start translation this again) within 48hours so hopefully an update this week 😊👍🏽

  4. This is a really good post-apocalyptic novel.

    Sadly with all the bullshit with Qidian the updates are fcked up…

    REN can you gives us any information ?

      I owe you guys an explanation on Godsfall. To be honest, I’ve avoided discussing this because mom sometimes still reads these releases, and I don’t want to worry her. Long story short, for the past month or so I’ve been in a weird mental funk/mild depression and have just been hiding in my apartment without really coming out. Not sure why; a mixture of burnout and some personal issues I guess. It’s been hard to find the motivation to do literally anything at all. The only thing keeping me doing DE is the fact that I know that literally tens of thousands of readers and hundreds on hundreds of Patreons are waiting for the chapters every week… and I actually appreciate that. That ‘whip’ has been keeping me going instead of just completely hunking down and just wallowing in the mental mud even deeper.

      I really love Godsfall, but since it doesn’t have a Patreon or that large of a readerbase, it just went by the wayside along with a lot of my other responsibilities. I think I’m slowly getting over it, and I’m at the point where I’m starting to get back to normal, mentally speaking. I’ve been slowly been kicking myself, trying to get my ass in gear again, and I’ll be pushing myself to start handling all those non-DE responsibilities again, Godsfall included.

      Sorry for the silence, and thanks for your patience. I’m climbing back on that horse again.

      1. Dude I feel u but u have to get too like 100 to get a large reader base most pip see 100 chapters and skip cause dey don’t like waiting or dey feel it will be boring. Cause it small or it will take too long. Talkless of yours dat under 50 u av to be comited even wen ur tired. And slowly build up this is even movie quality just look at d book of game of thrones fan base started small

  6. Pls by d name of all that is good realese chapters at a decent pace this is by far top 4 story on wuxia so y u trasalate so slow as 1 a week it Ok but you translate like once in 4 months wat happened did d translatol die
