Chapter 429 – Treasures from Heaven and Earth

Emperor Tian Yuan was the ancestor of Sky Origin Divine Clan, the one who’d been killed by the Sage Emperor!

“What if I say that our common enemy is the Sage Emperor?” Nie Li said with a faint smile.

“The Sage Emperor?” Emperor Tian Yuan’s intent carried a smear of bloodlust. “Young man, do you really think I’ll believe that? Given your age, you won’t even be able to touch the surface of the Sage Emperor! If he wanted to kill you, he wouldn’t even need to lift a finger!”

“Does Senior Tian Yuan know of the theory of time-space?” Nie Li smiled.

“Time-space? You’re someone from the Ancient Era? No. If you were from the Ancient Era, there’s no way I wouldn’t know who you are!” Emperor Tian Yuan’s voice carried suspicion.

“What if I said that I’m from one hundred years in the future? Would Senior Tian Yuan be willing to believe that?” Nie Li asked.

“A hundred years in the future? The river of time-space only flows forward, never backwards. Unless…” Emperor Tian Yuan paused and turned his intent onto Nie Li’s body.

Emperor Tian Yuan’s intent seemed like it was going to penetrate Nie Li.

After a brief silence, Emperor Tian Yuan spoke again. “Alright, then. I’ll believe that you’re someone from one hundred years in the future. As for what you said about the Sage Emperor being your enemy, I’ll also believe that.”
Nie Li had too many things on his person that should’ve been impossible for someone of his level to obtain. The only clear explanation was that Nie Li was truly someone from one hundred years in the future.

Someone from hundred years later?

Long Yuyin blankly stared at Nie Li. How could she believe something so bizarre?
“I fought with the Sage Emperor in my previous life, but, ultimately, I wasn’t his opponent. Now that I’ve returned back to my youth, I’ve begun anew by cultivating the Heavenly God technique and obtaining all sorts of treasures. However, trying to break the seal on the endless time-space is still too difficult. Still, I never expected to meet Senior Tian Yuan!” said Nie Li.
“Say, how did you lose in your previous lifetime?” Emperor Tian Yuan said with a deep voice.

“In my previous life, the Ancestral God Land was destroyed. As a result, the Sage Emperor broke through his seals and struggled free. He then began slaughtering experts left and right, causing great destruction. The other experts who’d hidden themselves in various realms finally decided to end their drifting and purposeless lives and rose in resistance. However, they were all suppressed by the Sage Emperor, either dying when their souls were destroyed or becoming eternally enslaved!” said Nie Li.
Emperor Tian Yuan spoke no words, but Nie Li could feel his wrath.

Emperor Tian Yuan had also been killed and his entire Sky Origin Divine Clan sealed in the Endless Wilderness, enslaved for generations and unable to escape. How could Emperor Tian Yuan possibly endure such a malicious act?

“Then, how did you resist the Sage Emperor? Even if a hundred years had passed, you’re still only a little over a hundred years old. What realm could your cultivation have reached?” Emperor Tian Yuan said once again.

“I obtained a treasure with the power to reverse space and time. That’s how I could confront him,” Nie Li explained.
“This treasure that you’ve spoken of should be the Temporal Demon Spirit Book?” Emperor Tian Yuan’s brows said deeply with knitted brows. As far as he knew, that treasure was the only thing that could possess such might.

Nie Li smiled, but didn’t say a thing. In a way, he’d admitted it.

Long Yuyin listened from the side, but was in deep confusion. She looked at Nie Li and felt even further from understanding him than ever before.

“If you wish to confront the Sage Emperor again, I can aid you!” Emperor Tian Yuan said. “However, you must agree to a few of my terms.”

“What terms?” asked Nie Li.
“To lead all of the Sky Origin Divine Clan out of the Endless Wilderness. If you manage to win against the Sage Emperor, you must return their freedom!” said Emperor Tian Yuan.

“Even if Senior Tian Yuan hadn’t said it, I would’ve done it!” Nie Li seriously replied.
“The Seat of the Sovereign, who doesn’t yearn for it? Today, I believe that your heart is righteous, but who can say what it will be in the future? I want you to swear on it. And if you do not follow your oath, you will be cursed by the Heavenly Dao and your cultivation will never make even an inch forward!” Emperor Tian Yuan decreed, focusing on Nie Li.

Nie Li understood that Emperor Tian Yuan wanted him to plant a Devil’s Heart inside himself. If Nie Li went against his oath, he’d be cursed by his own conscience and his cultivation would never rise again.

Nie Li raised his right hand and took the oath. “I swear that after I defeat the Sage Emperor, I will return freedom to the Sky Origin Divine Clan. If I go against this oath, I will accept punishment by the heavens and my cultivation will never rise another inch!”

Long Yuyin watched from the side. She’d never heard of this “Sage Emperor” that Nie Li and Emperor Tian Yuan were talking about. However, she imagined that he must be a powerful existence. Even though she didn’t know exactly how strong this Emperor Tian Yuan was, she was certain that he was far stronger than any Martial Ancestor Realm expert.

Emperor Tian Yuan laughed, “With your words, I can rest at ease. Now, back when I was alive, I left behind many treasures. They’re all useless against Emperor-level experts, but they’ll definitely be useful to Heavenly Axis Realm experts like you. They’ll give you a huge boost to your cultivation.”

Treasures of an Emperor-level expert?

If Nie Li could obtain the treasures left behind by Emperor Tian Yuan, it’d be a great boost to his cultivation speed.

Suddenly, the ground split before Nie Li and Long Yuyin and a disk slowly ascended from below. This disk was a few hundred meters in radius and was stacked with all sorts of items. Aside from weapons and armours, there was also a variety of spiritual medicines.

Even a Martial Ancestor Realm expert might have never seen such treasures before!

“These treasures are too powerful for you. With your cultivation, you won’t even be able to use them unless you knew the methods!” Emperor Tian Yuan sighed. “But consider them my gift to you! I will also impart with you the knowledge of how and when to use them!”
Nie Li laughed. “Senior Tian Yuan is underestimating me. Don’t forget, I’m from a hundred years in the future. Senior Tian Yuan doesn’t have to teach me how to use these treasures!”

Emperor Tian Yuan was dazed for a brief moment, before he issued a laugh. “So that’s how it is. It seems I’ve been saved quite a bit of trouble!”

Nie Li looked at the pile of treasures before him with elation in his heart. There were a few hundred Divine Phaseless Fruits and hundreds of armours and weapons that surpassed the Martial Ancestor Realm level. There were also treasures of other kinds. These things were simply too precious!

Right now, Nie Li’s cultivation was stagnant because he lacked the very treasures necessary to boost him any higher. But at his current level, it’d be impossible for him to obtain such treasures! But now that Emperor Tian Yuan had left him this treasury, he’d be able to push his cultivation much higher in just a short period of time.

However, Nie Li still had to figure out how he was going to use these treasures most effectively. After all, his currently level made it impossible for him to fully use such high-leveled treasures!

“I’ll take it, then. Many thanks to Senior Tian Yuan!” Nie Li smiled, then stowed everything away into his interspatial ring.

To an Emperor-level expert, especially one who was already dead, these items were useless. Therefore, Nie Li didn’t have to be modest with Emperor Tian Yuan! After all, in a way, this was a transaction between them!

78 thoughts on “TDG Chapter 429” - NO SPOILERS and NO CURSING

      1. This entire series is about Deus ex Machina xD Hell, the very fact he was able to come back at all is pretty much one. But then again, everything is a deus ex machina when they are literally competing against someone controlling space and time.

        1. You’re not wrong… Maybe that’s what’s making this so interesting? So many random things piss me off about this series that I’m repeatedly confused as to why I absolutely love it so much.

      1. Feels to me like the author has gotten a lot better at writing since starting the series and wants to work on ending it early so he can start a new one where he does things a lot better next time around.

  1. I have been thinking, since Nie Li entered the profound state by consuming the Temporal Book page, although his surroundings are not affected, his soul realm is. Why the Deity Lakes and/or entities inside his soul realm are not affected e.g. hundreds of millions of soul stones, Yu Yan on higher cultivation etc?

    Thanks for the chapters !!! 🙂

      1. Wait!
        Does that mean if he use the remain pages outside the painting, his money would like up for hundreds years?
        What about the goddess and pet inside? Will they benefit(?) from his time-warp if they stay inside the painting?
        Considering that their cultivate speed is so slow, this could be most game hack ever!!!

        1. He couldn’t access the heavenly energy inside the painting if he was outside of it though, plus if it doesn’t work like that he wasted an extremely valuable and very limited resource.

  2. I have to admit that even though I enjoyed this chapter I’m incredibly annoyed that Long Yuyin knows his greatest secret about returning to the past but his so called friends never even knew. I’m aware the circumstances forced his hand to reveal that secret even with Long Yuyin around but I still feel some irritation. With her knowing, I wonder if he will still keep that secret from the rest of his friends

    1. This is a classic story technique used to bond a late love interest to the protagonist it gives the late love or long yuyin her own unique place with nie Li like how Yi Ziyun has nie Li’s first life and xaio ninger has the majority of the story with Nie Li. This trick is usually done to late love interest who haven’t interacted with the other characters shown as how Ziyun and ninger were childhood friend while yuyin has no relation to them

      1. I call those useless harem additions, which dont contribute anything to the story, its only there to put more girls at the mcs side, so the author can keep decribing how beateful they are…

    1. He lvl up a while ago, read again the chapters from the blood sacrifice technique (or something like that) and then his time inside the painting when he was like a long time but in the real world only a few days

    2. Nie Li was heavenly fate before the Illusion palace arc at the end of it he discovered the secret of the vine and sky rocketed to 9 heavenly star but thanks to his cultivation technique he is not inferior to a heavenly axis and has been mistaken as one before

  3. Wouldn’t this a curse on Long Yuyin, didn’t author mention previous if anyone has even a single un-shielded thought about Sage Emperor, Sage Emperor will realize it?!

    1. I guess where they are she is shielded also I doubt he pays attention to every single thought about him otherwise he must have more free time then I realised

  4. So, he just levelled up greatly, right. Like, to an absurd degree, why is he saying his cultivation is stagnant? Also, I hope this story doesn’t become MGA, with the MC just hoovering up cultivation resources to advance. I feel like I have expressed that thought before regarding this series :/

  5. Long Yuyin was already told about the Sage Emperor, I think it happened a bit after Nie Li met his master and was explaining why she killed the master of both her and Long Yuyin. I may be mistaken about the timing, however, I’m certain that she was told.

    1. Yes, she was told about it.
      She even was amazed by Nie Li’s great sacrifices and overall plan.

      It’s just the novel started to suck balls level: hard.
      And no amount of resources or cultivation will change that. Sadly.
      TDG used to be really something else. Sigh.

      1. Yeah, I agree, it got bad or at least it lost the thing I liked about it.

        I generally like OP main characters, however, they MUST have some flaw for me to really enjoy them. The best example of such a character that comes to mind is Shiba Tatsuya. He has two abilities (that he keeps secret) that essentially make him a god, but those abilities take away his ability to use regular magic, which is a cause of discrimination against him.

        Nie Li used to be like that – boundless knowledge, but no real power, status, or anything.
        Now he has clan successors as casual friends, a literally infinite amount of money/cultivation resources, able to raise his power level in an instant, an army that is nigh unstoppable, and now a pile of OP artifacts.

        1. Now that I think about it, I can even tell the moment I started disliking the character – it was when Nie Li visited his family and made a joke of his patriarch.

        2. There is a stage over martial Ancestor that the others don’t know about, and he is going back to his own dimension look for all the treasures that went down to the small world so there might be a another dimension that they will go to train over martial Ancestor

          1. If you are referring to Tatsuya, I sincerely doubt that there’s anyone stronger – he is able to destroy or restore anything and anyone (he can’t bring back the dead, however) in an INSTANT. He can recover from any injury and doesn’t even need to be conscious for it to work. Is immune to magic neutralizing effects. Can destroy magic that is being cast. One of, if not the best student of a “legendary” ninja master. And that weakness I mentioned about him being unable to use magic properly? Well, he can work around it by bypassing the preparation stages and going immediately to the casting phase. With a bit of preparation or specialized gear, he can effortlessly create explosions that make nukes look like water balloons. And the list goes on.
            Honestly, he’s so overpowered that it’s ridiculous.

            However in spite of all his abilities being revealed one by one, he still doesn’t flaunt them and his “weakness” remained, he’s still discriminated against as a low level magician. Even though people understand that he’s way above your average guy, that’s only true for those that interact with him. Those that never met him still look down on him as a “Weed”.

            That said, I did stop reading it, because he got way too many OP abilities and the now rare discrimination didn’t make up for it.

            As for his lack of emotions, that’s a personality thing, it does not relate.

  6. Thanks for the chapter Thyaeria, Xex, and Dogboy90! I thought the Sage Emperor had a HP thing going where if you mention him he gets a ping. Or does that not apply in this realm?

  7. OP treasures
    OP powers
    OP knowledge
    OP friends
    OP political ties
    OP cultivation
    OP army

    If this were my D&D character I’d be very, VERY worried for it would mean “you will need all this, and possibly more, very soon”

    1. The comments are far more interesting. Next chapter he will probably get more loot, more level-ups, more helpers. “Stagnant cultivation.” Yeah right. Who does this writer think he’s fooling?

  8. Author release chapters so casual that he don’t remember what he wrote in previous chapters:

    Chapter 429:
    “Long Yuyin watched from the side. She’d never heard of this “Sage Emperor” that Nie Li and Emperor Tian Yuan were talking about. (…)”

    But in Chapter 333 Nie Li tell her about Sage Emperor while explaining consequences of cultivation Heaven’s Divination technique. He even told her that all he is doing is to confront Sage Emperor.

    1. Mm, I couldn’t be bothered looking it up but I remember him telling her that too. It stuck in my memory because he hasn’t told a lot of people about the Sage Emperor before, but Long Yuyin was one of them. Author forgot, I guess.

  9. i really like this and i am reading another 2 novels on this site…..and they all seem to be centered around greedy arrogant assholes…:/ anyway thank your this release
