Epilogue

“It was mainly to attain the power of destiny. The Meteor Sword was just something that came along with it. Besides, it’s not even complete!” Leylin was in a good mood as he explained the details to Baelin.

Soon after, a great number of alchemy ingredients appeared before him. Brilliant rays of light started seeping into the sword and making it shine brighter.

“The truth is, the Meteor Sword was designed by and customised for me, and it is missing the most important step!” Leylin drew the sword and held it up, his eyes glistening with excitement.

“Toxic Bile!“

The terrifying image of a devil king started to manifest behind him. But this time round, the Toxic Bile was concentrated on the Meteor Sword instead of a large-scale attack.

Menacing, deathly strands of black crawled onto the sword and the once-bright silver glow started to dim before turning a glistening coal-black.

This was the original intention of Leylin to forge the weapon.

The scope of the attack by the Toxic Bile was too large. Leylin thus confined its poison within the sword, preventing it from diffusing freely.

Henceforth, anyone who was injured by the sword would immediately be poisoned. In addition, Leylin could use his own innate spells to supplement its already-great power.

Leylin looked at the dark sword shining in his hands, unable to mask his happiness. From here on, the power of Toxic Bile would not be used recklessly. Rather, it would be his common means of attack, greatly increasing his strength and power.

“There is one last procedure!” Leylin glanced over at Baelin, with a sharp look in his eyes.

Baelin had understood how this was going to turn out. He looked at Leylin and told him fearlessly, “I believe in the fairness and righteousness of Twilight Zone. You’ll be punished for everything you’ve done!”

“Haha… Fairness and righteousness ?”

Leylin shook his head and laughed, “The glory of my achievements will be recorded and sung by the people. As for the unglamorous stories behind the glory, who would pay any attention to them?”

A ray of black swooshed across. Baelin’s head was decapitated, and before it could land on the ground, both his head and body had started to decompose.

Blood splashed on the surface of the gold coin and the once brilliant shiny surface became dull. It seemed to faintly be emitting a hint of history.

“Lastly, with the sacrifice of the child of destiny! Unique magic item—Coin of Destiny, complete!“ Leylin finished his last incantation.

The gloomy yet glowing item lay ominously in his hand.

“Unique magic item—Coin of Destiny! With the Sacred Flame at its core, and the blood sacrifice of the child of destiny, will bring forth a magic item that has an astonishing amount of power. The coin can guide us through the path of the future to a certain extent, and may produce uncertain results!”

The A.I. Chip tried to generate a description for the coin. However, it was very clear that even the A.I. Chip could not make an accurate judgement of its powers; after all, things such as fate and the power of destiny could not be assessed by the current A.I. Chip or expressed by data.

The supposed unique magic item was hard to be categorised.

In the Magus world, there were always magical items that possessed a power which surpassed magic equipment. However, the physical quality itself might be weak, while some others contain bizarre capabilities. Hence, they were not categorised the same as magic artifacts and magic equipment but had a classification of their own.

Amongst the unique magic items, some possessed limited capabilities, while there were others that display a horrifying amount of power!

A ray of silver lit up and, in a flash, Coin of Destiny had vanished into the bag Leylin was carrying.

“Kill the dark elves and the revolutionary army! As for the Magi of Twilight Zone, kill them too if they don’t pledge allegiance to me!”

Leylin looked around and inspected his surroundings.

The Magi of Twilight Zone may have had an advantage in numbers, but the lengthy battle had exhausted them of their stamina and magic power. They were no match for the fresh Magi of Nature’s Alliance.

Furthermore, the Alliance had the support of Leylin, a rank 2 Magus.

As time passed, the field got progressively quieter before settling for silence.

“Sire! What do I do with these captives?” Iren asked with a bow.

There were weak and dispirited Magi all around, many of them covered with wounds and blood from multiple injuries.

“They are to hand over their spirit sources to me, kill them if they refuse!” Leylin gave the order indifferently.

Soon after, Leylin moved towards the remaining eight Magi encased in the ice sculptures and pointed at them.

“I shall add another layer of seals on these eight Magi. They will be transported back to headquarters to be interrogated by me!”

The Magi from Nature’s Alliance were lying in ambush and the plan was carried out according to what he had planned. And sure enough, the results at the end were very favourable. The exhausted and injured Magi from both sides were eliminated at one stroke.

In fact, Leylin was the one who notified the Guardian on the outside and asked for his assistance.

“The war outside should be ending about now?” Leylin smiled. He held up a special artifact and sent a communication signal through it.

“My Lord! Reporting on our status. The Magi on our side as well as the dark elves are severely injured. The dark elves have withdrawn their troops, but we cannot pursue due to similar losses on our end!” one of the Magi on the battlefield reported.

Any attempts at communication had been blocked long ago by Longbottom. With Leylin’s enhancement to the cocoon, only his own artifact could communicate with the outside.

“Very good! The current situation is the best of the three scenarios that I had anticipated!”

Leylin swept his eyes over the Magi from Nature’s Alliance and smiled, “As long as we follow and advance according to the plan, soon the entirety of Twilight Zone will be ours!“

Leylin had never led before, but he had experienced much in the Magus world. With his ability to influence their minds, Leylin’s words were bewitching and convincing.

Although there were some Magi among the crowd below that seemed to be somewhat hesitant, Leylin was pleased to see the obvious fiery ambition sparkling in their eyes, dispersing any sign of restlessness and confusion.

“As long as you are a living being with wisdom, it is difficult to remain unwavering in the face of temptation!“ Leylin rejoiced covertly in his heart but also let out a sigh…

The news about the incident at the young genius competition spread like wildfire through the Twilight Zone.

The leader of the revolutionary army, Longbottom, had disguised himself and snuck into the competition as a contestant. Once he was crowned champion, he plotted against the judges.

Thereafter, the dark elven forces, under the conceal of their crown, joined to complete the ambush.

Even though their troops retreated in the end, a huge amount of damage was inflicted on the central region, causing numerous casualties.

The situation of the arena was worse. The losses there were tremendous, and only a few Magi had survived.

Leylin, most powerful of the survivors as a rank 2, issued complaints about the dark elves’ conduct, calling for action from the central region.

After his return to the base, Leylin immediately gathered all of his Magi. Seeking the assistance of the other Magi who favoured his cause and started organising an army.

The central region was currently in a state of tremendous chaos. A large number of high-level Magi had perished. The Guardian of the Realm, as well as the other Protectors, had all vanished without a trace as well. In the name of righteousness and for other reasons, the remaining Magi all united under Leylin’s banner.

Leylin, who was at the centre of attention, headed towards a different place on his own.

This single empty space seemed to have emerged from the Earth’s crust, it was narrow and cramp, the continuously faint but hurried breathing could still be heard.

*Bang!* A massive explosion sounded and crushed rocks flew everywhere.

In the midst of the mayhem, Leylin smiled as he walked forward with the Coin of Destiny in his hand, “Lord Guardian of the Realm, and Protector Logan, you both are truly very good at hiding. It took me awhile to find this place!”

Leylin took a quick glance around and realised that there were 2 dead bodies lying in this cave and on their corpses, some rank 2 energy was still present.

A half-naked old man, whose body was covered with incantations and coloured spots, leant against a rock trying to catch a breath. On the other side was a familiar face, Logan from the east. When he saw Leylin, he couldn’t believe his eyes.

It seemed as if after the battle with the dark elves and Anya, two of the Protectors had died. Logan and the Guardian of the Realm were still struggling with their breaths.

“Why.… Why is it you?” Logan asked with a pale face.

“Oh?” Leylin raised his eyebrow, ”Looks like there are many Magi out there who miss you! So much so that you do not even dare to go back to your old nest, preferring to hide outside…”

But he didn’t mind because, in the face of true power and capability, any crafty conspiracy would seem like a joke.

“How did you find us? Forget it, that is not important right now. I just want to know, young Magus, do you belong to us or the dark elves?” the Guardian by the wall struggled to ask.

“There’s no need to worry. The dark elves are not rich enough to bribe me! As for Twilight Zone’s Magi, they shall step on the path to glory under my leadership!”

“Well then! Go ahead!” the Guardian smiled, his eyes gleaming with wisdom.

“….” Leylin bowed slightly in respect to the Guardian who dedicated his whole life to serve the Twilight Zone. Soon after, a thick black darkness shrouded the entire area.

The border between the northern and central region of the Twilight Zone.

At this moment, in an open plain, two enormous armies were about to confront each other.

On the north was the dark elven army, their skilled knights riding Underground Winter Spiders and emitting continuous energy waves from their bodies.

  1. Thanks for the translations.

    Ahh… It’s getting kind of boring… If the MC has both good and bad in him it’s fun to see him struggle and evolve, but if he’s all bad and personal gain first then it gets just boring…

      1. Dude i’m here for the dark side of the MC, for once we don’t have a little wuss of a MC but somebody with balls who dare to murder and scheme to get his ways. This is a true magus : cold hearted scientific whose only goal is power and greater knowledge

        Thx for the chapters !!!!

    1. There is no good or bad in Leylin. Besides good and bad are just concepts. What someone recognize as rightious, another may see it as evil. So your statement is really childish. Leylin has always worked for himself. For his own benefit. He has his own code and abides by it. He was never constrained by concepts like good or bad to begin with. I’m surprised you couldn’t understand Leylin’s personality after so many chapters. His personality is consistent and that is how it should be.

    2. He’s not bad, actually not even the dark elves are bad, both humans and dark elves are just doing their best to survive, knowing that the existence of the other race is a threat to their own.

      Leylin is just trying to get more power, because that’s the only way he will survive long term and accomplish his goals, and he knows that in the grand scheme of things, the few sacrifices of Aaron, Baelin and co, are a drop in the ocean in this war.

      Under his command, the humans will actually have much better chances to survive and prosper, and the old Guardian of the realm was about to die either way. Although Leylin used underhanded means and violence, the result will actually be positive. In comparison, Baelin would have used honorable means but the result would be negative because he’s a moron and would have gotten nowhere without destiny to help him.

      1. Yeah, he’s not bad per se, he’s just a dick. If he’s able to screw someone over without any repercussions, then he will. I’m kinda disappointed in his personality, especially how he considers anyone below him as just fodder that he can toy with.

        I was actually rooting against the MC, hoping Aaron would become strong enough from the power of destiny to kill the MC because of how badly he was treating everyone. It’s a shame Aaron couldn’t at least get away from Leylin with his predictions after he reached rank 2.

    3. Just because he’s all for personal gains, it doesn’t mean he’s all bad. It’s just that you tend to need to be more evil than good if you go for the peak and personal gains.

      He has been like this from the start, why people who can’t accept it are still reading is beyond me.

  2. Man I cried. I loved Baelin so much… Will Leylin treat every ally like this? I hope he treats George his childhood friend well… Also Nyssa. I wanted Baelin to be under him on his path to glory… Now I’m sad

    1. What?! You…

      Ah.. pitiful Baelin.
      No matter what, Leylin can be considered to be his master.
      To be scheming against his own disciple.. This time Leylin has gone too far.

      I don’t even know who’s the MC and Villain anymore.
      And this is also my first time rooting for MC’s demise.

      Leylin!! May you rot in hell!!

      1. I doubt you would understand this but you are no different from Leylin. Or even worse….

        While your belief is that between master and disciple there is a sacred inviolable bond, everything in the magus world has always based on logic and benefits, including relationship between master and disciple. And Leylin’s beliefs are just that, logic and benefits,

        You just judged him saying how bad he was according to your own values and beliefs.
        Leylin judged people by their benefits and that’s his belief.

        By hook or by crook, he did everything to increase his power and chances of survival in a cruel world he’s in and you’re blaming him for that just because you are living in a rather peaceful world and don’t need to try much to survive?

        Look at another angle.
        Leylin did what he did because he gained something out of it.
        You cursed him to die just because he didn’t act how you want him to and you gain nothing out of it, what’s this? Are you Hitler or something?

  3. OH NO! LEYLIN THAT BASTARD!!!!!
    HE….!!!! HE…!!!!!
    He didnt collect the Bioboosted Armor!, seriously, that thing looks like it would merge nicely with the branded swordmen for his personal army, even if they are not so powerful compared to Leylin it never hurts to have plenty of disposable pawns

    And the way he used the sword to store and canalize Toxic Bile is pretty neat, now an uncontrollable weapon becomes a precise weapon

    Thanks for the chapter

  4. Even though i kinda saw it coming, i really liked Baelin.

    Would rather have laylin kill Longbottom before he died, and make him the sacrifice, then taking in Baelin as a slave/disciple, would have been funny to see the in teraction between the two.

    but hey…

  5. I strongly doubt that this way of using opportunities is effective.

    Creating a coin of fate, Laylin was in his right since without him, those three would die. But killing Baelin for the victim’s child’s fate is an absolutely stupid decision. The fate of baelin did not belong to him, the reason for taking life was greed without justification. As a result, he created the object using the path that will spoil the object. As an example, instead of a normal genie, he created an evil genie of fulfilling desire, he will fulfill it, but so that way which the wishing man will curse that moment when he has want to make a wish. Or the so-called damned thing because of the source of its origin which he himself will use.

  6. sigh…damn I really like Bealin R.I.P. man , poor Jenny going wait for him but never see him return. Hope Leylin will take care of her, at least give her good home and some wealth for compensation.

    1. Rip Longbottom, Bealin, Aaron,Vines, Enric, Guardian, The 4 Protectors and all the Sacrifices…
      REST IN PEACE…
      Poor Jenny (Future RIP)…
      That reminds me of the MANGA “Darren Shan“ it really resemble this on truly tragic but at least their was a Happy End…

      ~«Thx»^^ ~«謝謝»^^

  7. Hell!! Leylin is no longer an anti-hero but a complete villian. It is not that I want a good two shoes but this is seriously over the top. I can’t wrap my head around on how he destroyed 2 good couples. I feel bad for baelin the most. I would have preferred if he killed longbottom instead. And Arian his fate was the most pitiful.
    Poor Jenny!! She is pitiful!

  8. Alright, now time for the new novel of Baelin reincarnating in a different realm and being the MC who somehow beats whatever Leylin becomes at the end of the series . . . . or fail again if Leylin somehow becomes more powerful than whatever gives destiny its power lol.

    Oh and damn that was a fun, if also incredibly depressing, read!
