Chapter 201 – Dreamcloud World

Is Nie Li the kind that needs a backer? Yu Yan is aware that he’s just joking; because in their relationship, the one standing in a higher position isn’t her, it’s Nie Li. She was the one receiving help from him! Solely based on Nie Li’s comprehension of two powers of law, Nie Li’s cultivation will soar leaps and bounds to a shocking degree within the next few months. He might even be able to reach Legend rank very quickly.

“I will definitely pay you back for today’s favor. So, what should I do to conceal my aura and leave this place?” Yu Yan asked, looking at Nie Li. She could feel that her divine body can already move as she wants and the Law of Fire in this area has basically been sucked dry by her.

It’s just like what Nie Li told her, she must travel around so that she can absorb even more Law of Fire and restore herself to her pinnacle state.

“If we are to leave this place, sister goddess must follow my instructions.” Nie Li lightly smiled and said, “Otherwise, if your aura was detected, I’ll be dead!”

“I understand. There are experts that wield the power of law over at the demon beast clan; therefore, I can only conceal my aura. If I was detected, then there would only be death. As long as your suggestion is correct, I’ll listen to you.” She said, nodding her head. In order to restore her strength, she has no choice but to suffer some grievances.

“I will shroud your body with inscription patterns from my Law of Darkness to conceal your aura. There is no other choice, but to have sister goddess be in a little inconvenient situation. Try shrinking your body to be as small as possible and hide within my sleeve. In addition, I’ll need to place all the clothes that you’re wearing as well as the stuff that you’ve used before and lay them down in an inscription array using the Law of Fire to mimic your aura. Hence, making the demon beasts think that you’re still in this seal. I will draw the inscription pattern array for you later on.” said Nie Li.

Yu Yan nodded her head, understanding what Nie Li is planning.

She did as she was told, that small figure of hers constantly flew around. Although she is very small, her speed and efficiency are very fast.

In the array that she laid down, a figure slowly appeared in the middle of the inscription pattern array and was quietly standing there. This figure looked exactly like Yu Yan, except this was just a fake.

After everything was properly arranged, Nie Li looked at her and said, “Sister Yu Yan, please try and shrink your body as small as possible.”

Looking at Nie Li’s sleeve, Yu Yan couldn’t help to but feel embarrassed. Even if her body can shrink to a foot1 tall, the space in Nie Li’s sleeve would still be too small. However, she had no other choice, but to do as he suggested.

For the future of the human clan, she can’t bother herself with such trivial matters. Her body slowly shrank till she was a foot tall, then turned into a streak of light and entered Nie Li’s sleeve.

The space in Nie Li’s sleeve was indeed too narrow. When Yu Yan entered his sleeve, she had stuffed it full, making it hard for her to make even a single movement. She uncomfortably twisted her body a little. Nie Li’s arm was like a pillar, blocking her, and she had no choice but to closely stick to his arm.

“Sister goddess, don’t fiddle around!” Nie Li bitterly smiled. His sleeve is indeed a little too narrow; however, he had no other choice as he can only maintain the stability of the inscription pattern of the Law of Darkness near his palm.

Nie Li begun to operate the Darkness inscription pattern array and slowly shrouded Yu Yan’s body with it.

Yu Yan could sense that her aura truly was concealed by Nie Li’s Darkness inscription pattern array. She never imagined that Nie Li would be able to use it so proficiently after just comprehending the Law of Darkness not long ago. In Yu Yan’s heart, she had strong curiosity about Nie Li’s origins.

Nie Li has no idea what Yu Yan is thinking right now; however, he can feel a peculiar sensation coming from his arm. He could feel her exquisite skin and curvaceous figure touching him, this is simply an alluring stimulation. Nie Li bitterly laughed, even in his previous life, he had never experienced such a strange event before.

Before entering here, he thought that there was some kind of treasure hidden here and some items that surpassed Legend rank. He never expected that he would find a goddess. He did not find any treasure, but he is bringing a goddess home, fate is such a mysterious thing.

Although his sleeve is a little tight, looking at it from the outside, it doesn’t appear odd at all.

“Let’s go.” Nie Li said to Yu Yan in his sleeve, he then followed the path he came from.

After exiting the cave, Nie Li looked down at the abyss, but couldn’t see the bottom, just a patch of black. According to Yu Yan, there are a few pinnacle level Legend rank demon beasts hiding within the abyss; therefore, he has to be very careful in concealing Yu Yan’s aura.

As Nie Li followed the cliff wall as he climbed up, there would occasionally be roars of demon beasts coming from the abyss. These terrifying roars should belong to some kind of powerful demon beasts. The roars themselves would cause one to palpitate. Fortunately, those fellas are hiding within the abyss. If they were to show themselves, Nie Li would definitely not be their opponent.

At this moment, even Yu Yan had become very careful as she tried her best to retract her aura.

Nie Li climbed up the cliff very quickly and patted the dust off his body. In this adventure into the Black Spring, his harvest was pretty good. He headed towards the Heavenly Fate Plateau. Originally, Nie Li thought that a day would be sufficient for him to open the treasure within the Black Spring. He never imagined that he would encounter Yu Yan instead and be delayed for such a long time.

Over at the Heavenly Fate Plateau, Xiao Kuang and his men were waiting for a long time, but weren’t able to wait for Nie Li’s return any longer. He thought that Nie Li already died in the Black Spring, so he returned to the Heavenly Fate Plateau.

Knowing that Nie Li has yet to return, Xiao Wu felt a little helpless. Now that Nie Li died in the Black Spring, if the City Lord of Glory City were to know about this matter, would they destroy the Heavenly Fate Plateau?

Before Nie Li returns, they do not dare to send anyone to Glory City. When the news of Xiao Lang’s gang reappearing reached Xiao Wu’s ears, he had them all captured and interrogated.

After hearing the information from the six of them, Xiao Wu felt very puzzled as to why Nie Li was doing all that. By making such a long rope, could he be preparing to go down to the Black Spring?

After recalling the terrifying legend about the Black Spring, they couldn’t help trembling in fear. They can only hope that Nie Li is blessed by the heavens and is able to return alive. Otherwise, if the people from Glory City track his location till here, the Heavenly Fate Plateau would be finished. They can be sure that Nie Li is one of the important figures in Glory City’s City Lord’s Mansion, he might even be the young master of the City Lord’s family.

Heavenly Fate Plateau’s market

While Nie Li was walking, Yu Yan sighed in sorrow. Once again, she has returned to the human world. Although the humans are being heavily hunted by demon beasts, at least not all of humanity has been annihilated.

Nie Li couldn’t help asking, “Sister goddess, how many plateaus managed to survive?”

“I’m not sure how many plateaus managed to survive.” Yu Yan shook her head and said, “After experiencing the endless god battle, although the humans have managed to survive and multiply in number with countless empires appearing, once a Spiritual God appears in the demon beast clan, the human clans would then enter into a great defeat.”

Yu Yan pondered and said, “Although the battle between the human clan and the demon clan is a disadvantage, it’s absolutely impossible for the demon clan to totally annihilate the human clan. Several Spiritual Gods have bloodlines passed down, and spread them around in other realms. Although the battle in the main world does not have a lot of human tribes left, the human clans have control of several realms. With the Amethyst Bamboo as the core, a few powerful Spiritual Gods laid down several defences in those realms and have been existing for tens of thousands of years. Even if all of the human clan’s Spiritual Gods are dead, the demon beasts clans won’t be able to kill the ones in those realms.”

So it turns out that the human clans are still in control of several realms.

“Among the human clans, the strongest should be the Primal Family passed down by the Primal Chaos Spiritual God. Within that family, there are countless amounts of Demigod rank experts and they have a copy of the Amethyst Bamboo as a guardian object. If the demon beast clan’s Spiritual God forced their way in, they would all be destroyed. Even though I have personally witnessed the Primal Chaos Spiritual God’s Divine Spark being destroyed, he is the most mysterious among us all. I can’t say for sure if he is finding a way to revive.” Yu Yan said after pondering her thoughts.

“Then, can we enter those realms?” Nie Li asked in low voice.

“We can, as long as we find the dreamcloud rock. We’ll be able to use it to lay down a teleportation array and enter the Dreamcloud World. That is an independent realm with flowers blooming all season. It is also prosperous and fertile. It’s only slightly smaller than the main world.” said Yu Yan. As for the spatial teleportation array to enter the Dreamcloud World, she’s one of the few human clan Spiritual Gods that knows of it.

A realm that is under the control of a human clan is definitely much safer than the main world. Furthermore, it’s more suitable for humans to live in compared to the Abyss Prison World.

If he can move Glory City into the Dreamcloud World, then it would be a lot safer.

Nie Li pondered in his heart and asked, “Where should we find the dreamcloud rock?”

“In order to obstruct contact between the Dreamcloud World and the main world, the demon beast clan’s Spiritual Gods plundered a major amount of dreamcloud rocks. There are only one or two in some ruins left behind by the human clans. Before my Divine Spark shattered, I hid my interspatial ring in the main world. It’s several tens of thousands of miles away from this place. If we can find my interspatial ring, we will definitely be able to have sufficient dreamcloud rocks.” Yu Yan said as she sighed.

Goddess Yu Yan’s interspatial ring? With her strength, there should definitely be lots of good items inside that were left behind when she was still alive, right?

However, tens of thousands of miles is a little far.

Nie Li had anticipation for the Dreamcloud World. In his previous life, the area that he moved around in was only the main world, he never went to those subsidiary realms. As for the Dreamcloud World, it was impossible for him to have heard of it before.

Yu Yan thought of something and said, “We have to leave this place, quickly. Otherwise, we might bring disaster to the Heavenly Fate Plateau.”

Once the demon beasts in the Black Spring notice her disappearance, they will definitely kill their way out. Although they have already laid down the disguise inscription pattern array, who knows when those demon beasts will see through it?

“Okay.” Nie Li nodded. He showed his face a little in the market, then left.

  1. I finally caught up to the latest chapter and I figured out a way to explain Nie Li’s OPness to people who still don’t get it.

    It’s basically Nie Li’s New Game+. He’s already played through the game, found a secret level and then got a bad ending. He’s now playing through a second time and using some carried-over power and all his carried-over knowledge to try and get the best ending. He’s breezing through the easy content (first 150 chapters) and is only now starting to encounter enemies that’ll give him problems. Even this arc is going back and finding a secret that he missed on his first play through.

    1. Nice, I was thinking the same thing.. he gets a bonus from his previous life (playing the game before). He knows lots of secrets, and is familiar with the game controls (he can utilize perfect spirit control) so he can do stuff he’d normally have to go and research first… this makes me want to go play zelda 1 😛

  2. Ok so clear this up for me? The last couple chapters before this one have left me a little confused. I know that there is your physical level and your spiritual level in this universe and it’s split into various categories, Bronze, Silver, Gold, Black Gold, Legend and so on. The former physical level is primarily something related to the fighter types I think. Sometimes a Demon Spiritualist has a strong body like Dian Jian, sometimes a less strong body like Xiao Ning’er who got a bit hurt during the demon beast attack. The story mentions her having a weaker body because she is a Demon Spiritualist, so I guess not all Demon Spiritualists get super sturdy..

    These past chapters kind of went back and forth on whether or not this new power of Law will help Nie Li reach Legend rank ‘physically’, making him very sturdy and tough to hurt like Dian Jian, or if he’ll completely reach Legend rank and be up there with Ye Mo and the City Lord within this three month period.. so, can someone explain what it’s supposed to be? Is he getting a super tough body? Or advancing ranks and gaining levels like normal?

    1. From what I’ve gathered, both. While a Demon Spiritualist cultivate his/her soulfource, the body only strenghen a small quantity compared to the soul force, which is normal since what they are training is in fact the soul force. That is somehow explain in the first 25-50 chapters when Nie Li explain to his friends that they should also train their body or else only their soul force would improve and eventually their body wouldn’t be able to hold it. (The part where they carry bags full of stones from one point to another in their way to training, or something like that.)

      With the power of Law, it appears to be different, and not only affect the soul anymore but, being a higher power and so, also the body, in a higher proportion it seems. I assume it also have to do with the Black Spring Pond, and not only with the power of Law, since they always ment him reaching Legend rank easily while training in there. Maybe because of some kind of stronger atmosferic preasure affecting his body or something like that, forcing it to strengthen.

    2. This may be because while the soul force is actually a power withing Nie Li’s body, training it won’t affect his body, but the power of Law being a power from the world itself, the moment he absorbs it, it has to go through the body to reach the soul.

      (Yeah, I couldn’t edit the comment before anymore xD)

      1. I think the difference lies in cultivation methods used. Dian Jian is also naturally gifted by birth with the black dragon attribute. Most cultivation methods focus on soul force true, but it’s easier to raise physical power than soul force so there usually isn’t too much of a difference (if any) between the two in any single cultivator. Since cultivation methods are basically power collection and distribution methods. It would make sense that normally the people who created them would therefore allocate more power to soul force and less power to physical power to maintain a balanced rise in rank. Ning’er’s method may be an exception or maybe the illness she suffered caused her physical power to suffer a set back.

        So far with law it seems to raise both equally, resulting in Nie Li’s current imbalance. I can only guess you would have to create cultivation methods for the laws just like you do for soul force to even out the distribution of power. If that would be possible.

    3. Sweet! So we’ll soon see a Legend rank Nie Li 🙂 Awesome.. bet that’ll make his father in law freak out 😛 lol “You hit Legend rank in less than 2 years and you’re not even an adult yet?!? … … … Well *bleep*” Hahahaha.

    4. “Bronze, Silver, Gold, Black Gold, Legend and so on” are not “various categories”… They are all measurements of “power level”; so they are basically one category.
      Physical level isn’t “primarily related” to only fighters… You thought wrong… Xiao Ning’er’s body wasn’t and isn’t weak… Everyone gets hurt… even Duan Jian. Doesn’t mean ur body’s weak, just cause you get hurt…
      Xiao Ning’er was gold rank (only 2nd level) and she was attacked by Gold Rank Demon Beasts (5th level). If Duan Jian (legend rank body) got attacked by Legend rank Demon Beast (5th level), he would get hurt really badly… He just hasn’t… doesn’t mean Xiao Ning’er’s body’s weak…
      It’s clearly stated by Nie Li (in his thoughts), that he said he will reach legend rank body like Duan Jian. He even freaking mentions it… Why make stuff up, like “completely reach Ye Mo”… Don’t make stuff up…

      There’s no real difference between Demon Spiritualists and Fighter types… Not really… The only difference is that, the Demon Spiritualists have “integrated” with Demon Spirits… (thus the name Demon Spiritualist…) So when they use the power of their demon spirits, their body also gains the demon spirit’s body’s toughness… Beasts have stronger body than humans (well depends on the beast but…). So if a gold rank fighter fought against gold rank Demon Spiritualist; the Demon Spiritualist would win… On the other hand if a Gold Rank Demon Beast fought with a Gold Rank Demon Spiritualist; the Demon Beast would win… Cause while the Demon Spiritualist are borrowing some of the Demon Spirit’s powers; the Demon Beast “IS” the Demon Spirit in real flesh… So just imagine (in real life) a Gorrila vs a man, who would win? Should there even be a question? So Demon Spiritualists who are “in the middle” half-man/half-gorilla would have a strength that’s “in the middle”…

      Fighter < Demon Spiritualist < Demon Beast (of the same rank)

      Also when you practice your soul force, your physical power gets stronger (automatically…). Just read from chapter 1 again… Every time Nie Li practice soul force and gets a power up, his physical body also goes through a change… So a fighter and Demon Spiritualist don't really have a difference. Except one is ordinary human vs human with "special powers" (super powers sometimes… It's like Batman vs SuperMan, but there's no kryptonite

      1. I agree with you. Just to add one point, a Demon Spirit has a stronger body but is also dumber, making it easier to kill them using your brain (which is why the Snow Wind Ape was so dangerous with its Wisdom).

        Also, since a Demon Spiritist have items, and a Demon Spirit not, a well equipped Demon Spiritist is strong as a same level Demon Spirit. ( Can be seen in the fight between the Ape and City Lord, the fight being more or less evenly matched, with the Ape having a small advantage but also having a slightly higher rank.

    1. Haha Nie Li how can you forget?

      “Infinity has no beginning, no beginning can have no end.”
      The 10 word infinity thing from the ten millenium spatial array with the light runes

      I think at around chapter 140?

  3. lol i never understood this part of nie li, he always says he has to quickly get stronger but doesnt hold onto the oppurtenities. for example when he was in the heavenly gate idk the exact name at the institute he said he could absorb and “lvl up” quicky there but didnt take the time to do so. the same happens here, this journey was clearly to lvl up quickly and he got the chance in the black water but again left after a half a month or a month not sure. addind the travel ammount and the days he spent at the village he still has a good amount of time b4 he left to glory city again. but as ussual he left too early.

    1. What you’re saying isn’t right, but I can understand where you got confused.

      In all the instances your mentioning, Nie Li goes to a place where he is able to level up his soul force quickly but then he leaves, while saying that he needs to level up quickly. This wouldn’t make sense until you remember something.

      Soul force does not rise linearly.

      This excludes going up the star ranks where we saw in the beginning that raising your soul force by 100 leveled you up by a star in Bronze rank, but the hurdles get much higher as you go to Silver and his current rank, Gold.

      So the places that Nie Li stupidly left, rather than them being valuable assets he didn’t use, were just places that leveled him up in the beginning, and not later when the hurdle he had to get over was higher. They just weren’t good enough for him to use anymore. It clearly said this earlier when he said that being in the pool wasnt good enough to raise his soul force, indicating that when he went deeper to get more, the deeper part of the pool could also not be enough given time.

  4. wtf, from chapter above:

    Before entering here, he thought that there was some kind of treasure hidden here and some items that surpassed Legend rank. He never expected that he would find a goddess. He DID NOT FIND ANY TREASURE, but he is bringing a goddess home, fate is such a mysterious thing.

    Diddn´t he get lots of legend rank treasures and spacial rings right before entering the spring?? don’t they count as treasures??
