Warlock of the Magus World (巫界术士)

SYNOPSIS

What happens when a scientist from a futuristic world reincarnates in a World of Magic and Knights?

An awesome MC — that’s what happens!

A scientist’s goal is to explore the secrets of the universe, and this is exactly what Leylin sets out to do when he is reincarnated. Dark, cold and calculating, he makes use of all his resources as he sets off on his adventures to meet his goal.

Face? Who needs that… Hmmm… that guy seems too powerful for me to take on now… I better keep a low profile for now.

You want me to help you? Sure… but what benefit can I get out of it? Nothing? Bye.

Hmmm… that guy looks like he might cause me problems in the future. Should I let him off for now and let him grow into someone that can threaten me….. Nahhh. *kill*

      1. that was just your own preconceptions. the MC was always as you call it “nasty”. I really like the MC though. Its cool to have an MC with different morals for once. He’s not a saint, and he’s not a complete dushbag. What he is though is a guy that wants power and is willing to go to any costs to obtain that power and survive. So he’s not evil and only cares about himself but not pointlessly so and its really refreshing.

        1. “What he is though is a guy that wants power and is willing to go to any costs to obtain that power and survive.”

          That is the definition of evil.

          I was seriously stoked with the premise when I read the summary…. a scientist in a fantasy setting? COOL.

          Then I read the rest of the summary…. Dark, cold, and calculating? Not helping people even though he can? Killing people who might cause trouble for him? NOT COOL

          Really, what’s with the influx of shitty protagonists -_-

          1. So far, i find the protagonist’s personality much better than that of a self-righteous reader with a moral superiority complex who has a boner for giving moral sermons and gets emotionally triggered if some authors decide to break up with millennia old traditions of goody goody protagonists to give evil and apathy and multi-layered manipulators a chance from time to time.

            Frankly, no matter how many morally corrupt protagonists get shat out in the next century, they will still not be as stale as your kinds of critics even after i’ve run through a thousand of them.

        2. not really refreshing-_-
          and he’s more like a monster, not good, not evil, just power-hungry
          there were several moments that i felt i should quit reading this, as it contains too many immoral choices.

          1. To me… It is refreshing. You put described the MC is a nice way, I like it. I think you should think of this novel as a guilty pleasure type novel. You get to laugh evilly as the protagonist wrecks everyone around him for his own benefit. If your morals are too strong to even have fun with this kind of thing then yeah maybe this isn’t for you.

      2. i haven’t started this novel yet, just looking for potential novels for my next read. i dont know your definition of “nasty” but just reading the synopsis the MC sounds like a MC with a tad of villain personality. so i think the point is that he is supposed to be nasty…

        1. He definitely not good by any means. He more chaotic neutral? I mean he not straight up evil like he enjoy making people suffer or anything but he doesn’t mind doing what needs to be done to get what he wants.

          1. One does not need to enjoy suffering to be evil, one simply needs to not care of the circumstances in pursuit of one’s goal.

            Really, “neutrality” rather a range within the moral spectrum, is simply a condition that is brought about by circumstance. This asshole of an MC does anything that suits his goals despite not really needing to do so, harming other just to speed up whatever plans he has.

      3. i agree the mc is retarded he likes does evil sh*t using girls as bait or torturing the fk out of people I hate the general feeling of I’m a scientist i’ll kill little babies if it benefits me kind of way

        but… i still keep reading and will probably keep until the end

        1. The MC is retarded? You’re just too used to the MC being the hero that saves everyone and is Mr goodie-to-shoes. The MC is cool as hell. Yes he does evil stuff, but most of that evil stuff is done to people worse then him. The MC is also a does good things, specially if they are for his friends. It is nice to have a MC that is actually doing shit for himself instead of everyone else and willing to walk the line between good and evil to get it done. If you want the MC to be the good guy all the time, go read children books.

          1. Between a hero and somebody who tortures people to death for some spirit body research is much space. The MC is clearly an evil character in alignment mostly neutral evil with the effects of his bloodline tending towards chaotic evil.
            Quote: “Neutral Evil people act soley in the interest of themselves and themselves alone. They have no loyalty and have no problems backstabing an ally. Greed drives a Neutral Evil person, and most are selfish and untrustworthy. However, Neutral Evil people will not commit evil acts unless there is some sort of payoff.”
            The circumstance that the MC has some sentimental feelings for his peers/friends doesn’t matter at all for that. Actually I think you have to search far and wide to find people worse than him.
            After all it is a good story with a villain as MC. It is like watching Star Wars from the perspective of Darth Sidious but that isn’t a bad idea. Either you like it or not.

          2. I would reply to Ryuo, but apparently that is not an option. So instead, I will support Vallain 🙂

            One thing that is certain, is that this MC is not evil.
            The MC will go out of his way to rescue or right out help friends in trouble, with no benefit for himself. His only requirement is that he will not hurt or risk himself to do so. If he can gain something from helping, he will do so, and maybe even rationalize his decision to help like that (first deciding to help, then figuring out he can gain from doing so).
            If he can help others, when trying to gain something, he will pick that road as well, rather than being truly selfish (wanting something, finding he can gain it through exchange. When he could simply use force and take it). In fact, he will likely view it as “equivalent exchange”, explained early.
            He is not the person who jumps down on the train tracks to push someone off of them. But he will reach out and grab the hand of someone he’s only met once, in passing, if he deems there is time, and he will not come in harms way. He might jump, if it was a friend, and there was no train in sight.
            That does not describe someone evil. More likely he is true neutral.
            He is not chaotic, because he follows rules, or codes. Some cultural, others even self imposed. He is not lawful, since he will break promises or binds, forced on him, by any means available.
            I think everyone agrees he is not good. And since he will actually help others without any gain, simply because he thinks he owes them, for some past deed. He is not evil either.
            Rather than alignment, and more interestingly, I’d ask:
            What is his personality actually like?
            He seems to have an outright need to rationalize all his decisions. And loosing control seems to really scare him.

          3. People are really freaking out about the soul torture thing.

            Yes, he tortures some souls so that he can vastly increase his own power. He makes sure to get said souls from death row criminals and to limit their quantity because he doesn’t want to get bad PR. Also looks to outsource said act as well when possible. But he still goes through with it because it is so vastly beneficial to him.

            And yes, that does make him evil. Evil does not mean “lulz lets kill everyone for the evulz and be incapable of helping anyone ever”. Many evil characters gave sets of rules that they follow. The MC of this one is at least only evil in a pragmatic manner

    1. Wooo Finally, i read the systran self translated gibberish but now i can finally get the whole story

    2. truth be told… this novel kinda have a slow pace in the beginning.. not much stuff happening

      if you can hold on reading till chapter 100+ ..it gets interesting a bit LOL

      still this kind of MC is “wicked cool” its not your usual kind of MC ..that is why i still keep reading this eventhough i could stop at any moment haha

  1. This looks interesting maybe i’ll like this MC more looks like it from the summary

  2. I was going to say… when did this get added?

    Welcome.

    Ah reading the description, I really hope the mc turns out to be an evil bastard. Reading the bad guys perspective is often fun.

  3. Welcome to the Wuxiaworld.com. Thanks for translating this novel.

    Leylin :D, same name with mc of Coiling Dragon.

    1. You’re thinking of Linley. Leylin was a separate character, and they also joked about the similarity between their names.

    2. Well, The author said Linley went to the Science and Technology Cosmos after the end of Coiling Dragon jajajajajaja

  4. Every time I read the name Leylin, I think of the fire element character from CD.

    This story looks pretty promising though, welcome to Wuxia World!

      1. I’m trying to guess the point of this post, but I’m getting nothing unless you think Leylin’s name is Bluefire instead of it being a nickname or some kind of title.

      1. He had an earth clone, but fire was his strong point. Hence, his nickname being Bluefire and not Blueearth. He also became a lesser sovereign of fire, and his earth clone was relegated to pretending to be a paragon and being Linley’s secret bodyguard.

  5. Doesn’t like this serial much, but at least it’s honest about being an evil bastard XD

    Perhaps it’s interesting to see it from a selfish and evil MC’s perspective. At least this serial doesn’t try to whitewash MC’s selfish deed into something of Virtue, I know a popular serial that make that mistake and turn the MC into something without personality, just author’s puppet to act genocidal left and right but all the MC and heroines are hollows while MC and rivals are all antagonist who compete on who’s being crueller and the needs to make it into something virtuous stop the story from making any sense at all 🙁

    This story is about a selfish and evil MC and even the synopsys shows it in honesty XD
    I still don’t like it but I can tell that this is a proper story, not a mismatched story components bundled together like MGA, so I can enjoy it a little even if I don’t agree on what is beneficial according to the story.

    1. A well thought out analysis then again a majority of the main characters in these translated stories have little or no actual motivation, character development or world building. The few gems that do have those aspects that make a good story worth reading are hard to find among the muck. Then again I mean does that mean I’m going to stop reading MGA or Chaotic Sword God probably not because even though it isn’t a great story by God is it addictive!

    2. The MC is not evil just pragmatic. Don’t people ask why God kills people? Why some countries make wars on another?
      The MC just have powers, much much more than a normal human (and later on than countries and diet. So basically humans doesn’t mean much to him. Anyone advocate the rights of ants when they are stepped on?

      Though I believe the politically correct term in such literature is Antihero.

      Though I have to agree, he’s selfish. 🙂

    3. How is MGA mismatched? I don’t get that. I mean, I even read the raws and I can still understand where and how the story is going.. and this was an year back when I remember MGA only being translated until the first 200? chapters or less. I dislike how Chu Feng suddenly matured and lost his bloodthirsty attitude from when he was younger. Its understandable.. ahh but he was fantastic when he just killed everyone, haha.

      1. Well the problem is MGA don’t have any deep. MC is a dumb guy, who gets easily drugged, goes after every girl (even if he has 3 wives, which for them he has no time). All woman in the story are support and they are not worth anything.
        In the end it’s a one-man-show, MC bashing things.

        Compare it to Xian Ni, MC is also killing without batting an eye, but he is very careful, he is not dumb, learns formations techniques and alchemy, understand complex political problems and handle them without beginning a massacre.

        It is not the same but DD has also a MC with very calculating personality. The story is not about getting stronger and bashing things.

        Back to the original topic: For me, WMW is no good, just because MC is a little bit too OP for me. I prefer MC getting stronger with time, struggling and never getting OP.

  6. OMA, now that you are attached to wuxiaworld, can you really keep calling yourself the one man army? =p

  10. Hey soo i know that i am totally behind the curve here, but i just saw this new book, and i wanted to welcome this new author and book here!! Welcome!! Join us!! Have fun!! Yeah thats kinda all i got for welcome…wait… I cant wait to read this new book seems pretty cool!! Anyways just wanted to give you my very late welcome.

  11. Nice. Now all the webnovels I’m reading are on one site~ The Chinese ones anyway. Glad to see you here, OMA!

  12. Almost all of the lines spoken by the characters have exclamation marks…
    I can’t help but feel that the characters are shouting all the time.

    I mean! It just feels! Kind of weird! When people! Are Shouting! For no apparent reason!

    1. People in this novel’s world can cultivate in several ways, such as a Knight’s Qi, or a Mage’s Mana (Cultivating both does not create problems).

      After building up a sufficient foundation of Qi or Mana, a cultivator may attempt to break through to the next level, relying either on insight from battle or external stimulation (Potions/Elixirs, Energy enhancing arrays etc).

    2. Normal humans have the path of Knights wich can also be cultivated by mages and increases physical strenght and vitality, it requires breathing techniques and internal energy techniques wich are passed down on important families

      Preparatory Knight > Knight >Grand Knight

      The first stage requires training, the second requires ignition of life energy in a life or death struggle but there are people who reach it naturally, the third one requires and advanced technique

      Magicians practice energy absorbption but before becoming magus they need to pass the Acolyte stage wich has three levels

      Level 1 – Construction of mind runes using magic energy and great concentration
      Level 2 – Use of mind runes to launch spells
      Level 3 – Consolidation of the foundation

      In terms of power they were classified as
      Level 1 – 1 point
      Level 2 – 3 points
      Level 3 – 10 points

      Magicians have 9 levels but most of them never advance after level 1 due to stuff you will see in the story

      A level 3 acolyte at the peak of the acolyte power can level up to Official Magus with different methods, the most common one being learning a rank 1 spell (acolytes use rank 0 spells) and using a special potion to estimulate their magic but the method requires signing a vinculative contract with an organization and because of that most acolytes look for legacies to advance on their own and some of those legacies lead to variation magus with strange quirks

      Magus have a protectice spell that makes them almost invulnerable against acolytes and knights, both of whom usually have no defenses against spells unless they are backed by some magus, level 3 acolytes can easily deal with Grand Knights due to improved spell casting speed (compared with level 2 acolytes) and because cultivating magic naturally increases the body strenght a little below that of a knight, still, many acolytes also practice knight techniques to have as much advantages as possible and to use the knight techniques wich can give physical boosts

      Is not strange for acolytes and magus to be hurt by the magic radiation when advancing and because of that many of them are strange people

  13. can someone explain to me just what a flipping crossblade is. ive loooked online and there is absolutely nothing that i can see that makes any lick of sense. so if someone would be so good as to answer my question then thank you from the bottom of my heart.

  14. Yes, yes, yes, to see this novel here is quite a pleasure, get ready for a MC who doesnt try to justify his acts as “vengeance” or “justice” but who act ruthless for his own benefit and knows it

    He destroys any potential threat as soon as he can and helps his friends as long as the cost is not too high, cold and calculating, a MC who is fine with lying low and making preparations instead of rushing head on against the enemies and attracting attention

  15. No glossary? 🙁
    I’m gonna read now, and I guess I’ll make one, and if I don’t drop it, if I read it until the end, I’ll post it, and then you can go from there, just updating it, if you don’t want to start from the beginning to make a glossary. (It will take a while for me to read it all, I don’t have much time right)

  16. yep….. I love this novel to the core!!!! EXCEPT!!!!! FOR THAT F*CKING V-card THINGS!!!! AAARRRRGHHHH!!!!!! (ノಠ益ಠ)ノ彡┻━┻

  17. What I also love in this novel is that there is no fated encounter (until now). The MC encounters a lot of people but none stays forever, like real life. It’s not because you have a good relation with somebody that it is guaranteed that you will encounter him again in the future.

  18. I am now at chapter 103 and theres one thing im realy wondering. The MC was a scientist/engineer working on a reactor, he has/had some neural chip with high prozessing and analysing power so the world he came from should a least be as advanced as ours. So why does the MC up until now never come to the idea of using technology, developing and creating something like a gun, pistol, assault rifle, railgun, laser, explosives and other stuff? Perhaps even combining magic and technology for example condensing magical particels into bullets or stuff could be thinkable. Does this change in the following chapters?

    1. Do you think a scientist who work on reactor in the front of his computer can make a gun or laser pistol?

      Even if he had a blueprint of a machine gun, i doubt he can make it without high-tech factory and proper equipment

      1. There is nowhere written that he only works on a computer. Further he is neither a lawyer, a priest, a manager or just somebody from the street. He is a scientist. If he doesn’t know how a gun, a laser, a magnetic field… works who else should know and what kind of scientist/engineer never learned this in his basic studies?
        He was around 2-3 years in Extreme Night City. Getting some common metalls like steel, a good blacksmith for creating the parts should be just a piece of cake with his amount ressources there.

        1. If you read some more you’ll see that the MC does resort to some concepts from his previous world, however even at this stage in your reading you should have realized that the “magic” and rules of this new world far outweigh the power of anything that could be individually produced in his former world. Your “laser gun” would be great against normal citizens but you’d last less than 5 seconds against anybody who had gone past the level of acolyte.

          1. It is just that he isn’t “alone”. In terms of the common citizens in the new world he is filty rich has slaves and could easily afford some commoner specialists like a blacksmith or clockmaker.
            Even some low quality/handmade assault rifle/gatling gun would be enought to obliterate the defence of a magus within seconds. 10 shots per second bullets with even only 2-3° damage and every defense(30-60°) would go down within seconds letting the magus hit multiple bullets if not for something like this liquid metall guy it is all over for them. With this he could have done all acolytes in the bloodbath of the secret plane alone. Concerning the “laser gun” The laser isn’t magic nor a common attack, it’s traffeling with the speed of light. That is nothing you can easily dodge if you want to avoid it you have to acutally jump away before you see the one with the laser shooting at you. In reality it isn’t that slow motion stuff you see in Star Trek or Star Wars. Further you would need some opaque defense like some stonewall spell, an reflecting amour or the snake scales spell of the MC. Some transparent barrier like most magus’ seem to have wouldn’t work at all.

    2. Magic > Previous world’s technology. The MC himself has described Magus as having the power of a nuclear reactor. They themselves are leaps and bounds more powerful than a gun, or anything of that nature. Who’d win, the guy who has a gun, or the guy who can literally TURN IN SHADOWS?! It’s a pretty easy conclusion. Also, I highly doubt that a weapon of your description firing bullets that deal 2-3° would do ANYTHING to a magus. That’d be like blowing air at them from a hand held fan. As for a speed of light laser, that’s also illogical and not even worth it. Illogical, because the technology to produce that is pretty damn far ahead, not possible in that world without extensive effort. Also, I’m gonna put money on there already being abilities in magic that can produce faster than light attacks.

    3. Eh never liked the idea of using current technology to curbstomp new worlds easily but let’s put the idea through.

      Firstly we know that Leylin is a scientist from the description, that’s a very broad and vague term but from his skill set I think it wouldn’t be hard to believe his specific field was to do with biology.

      Now we got to ask, how did he come to learn of gun blueprints/ laser imprints etc etc, sure he gives off the vibe of a mad scientist but that just seems to imply more that he was strung into his field of research and had no time for hobbies etc. Gun mechanics isn’t something you learn on your first day of “science101”, it’s a specific field, many of my friends work or study in STEM and have no idea how to make a gun or gunpowder etc.

      But let’s say Leylin made a gun kinda like that guy from Arifureta from utter bs magic etc, how strong is this gun then? I mean it’s a simple impact device, acid javelin (an acolyte spell) seems much more powerful, but for your sake we’ll say it’s 2-3 degrees. Now how can we say it’ll only take 20-30 shots to destroy a magi’s innate shield? Is it a simple factor of 60-3=57? Or is it more like when you’re playing a game where you’re level 60 and some level 3 guy comes up trying to wail on you? In that case he could hit you hundreds of times but the difference in stats and level wouldn’t even leave a chink in your armor.

      No, I believe that the profound magic they use is much more enjoyable, also that a simple gun or even more advanced versions would be quite worthless against the magi and that to implement one into the storyline at this point in the game would be a terrible mistake.

  19. If you’ve ever played Zelda Skyward Sword on the Wii… the main character may or may not be Link (they both use swords, that’s about where it ends), but his A.I. Chip is 140% identical to that annoying blue nerve-wracking whatever that keeps annyoing Link (or rather, you) throughout the game. If you can deal with that, it’s an OK read.

  20. So wish ya’d take off that bit at the end of the description, the fake dialogue. Just feels so unrelated to the actuality that is Leylin.

  21. I know this question may sound dumb, but what elements can a mage possess in this world?
    We know of Darkness, Light, Fire, Earth, Water and Air. But are there any others such as Frost e.g.

    1. He actualy developed the affinity for frost element in the twilight zone so yeah there should be more…

  22. His another work named xianghuochengshendao is also a great novel.
    Highly recommen learn some Chinese culture would be better to get the point in that book.

  23. I am just curious how many chapters are there total in the raws, or are there more chapters being added to the raws?
