WMW Chapter 392

The Central Continent

Magma roiled around like water in a rough sea, emitting heat waves that swept across, a hint of the incredible power beneath.

A sheet of golden liquid lay at its center, as if a lake within the lake. However, this magnificent sheet could stop Magi in their steps.

Above the lava lay a giant passage, tiny voices sounding from it now and then. The rock around this passage was very hard, and no one knew where it led.

*Swish!* A silhouette appeared on the shores of the lake. The light dispersed to show a very young Magus, his long black hair tied up casually and his skin fine and smooth. His handsome face was filled with the dignity of a ruler.

This was naturally Leylin, but his robe was currently a little dusty. The hurried round trip had drained him.

“My Lord!” a middle-aged Magus with bronze skin saluted.

“Are you finished?” Leylin asked casually.

“Yes! Please follow me!” Kubler led Leylin to a hole he’d dug near the lake.

A giant ball lay at the center. The dark ball seemed to made of stone, its surface was a glossy black. On a side of the ball was a door which revealed that it was hollow.

“According to your blueprint and orders, all parts were made from the hardest layer of this metamorphic rock to bear the high temperature of the central magma. The joints were even reinforced by runes…” He reported at Leylin’s side like a loyal servant.

He didn’t even mention the difficulty in collecting the rock and casting it into shape.

“Good job!” Leylin nodded, looking at the runes inside the ball with surprise.

This Mankestre bloodline Warlock was much better than he’d expected at alchemy.

“No, it’s my pleasure to serve my lord, there is no trouble at all!” Kubler saluted humbly with his hands crossed before his chest.

This sort of respect was expected in front of Magi with higher bloodlines. Kubler had grown used to it during his time in the Ouroboros Clan.

“The lava lake is becoming more active recently. I’m afraid this means that it’s about to erupt!”

At that time, the place would be flooded with lava, blocking the entirety of the passage.

Kubler had come down here when the volcano was dormant, and had still suffered horrific burns. This had left him in fear of the lava. Although he went with his lord’s plan, he was still worried. However, the servant had no right to make the final decision. He could only make suggestions and had to follow his master’s orders.

“I understand. The eruption will occur in an hour and 23 minutes. Prepare yourself!” With the A.I. Chip’s ability to observe and forecast the eruption, Leylin knew the timing much better than Kubler did.

He had run this plan by his A.I. Chip’s calculations, and the success rate was over 90%. Why would he risk his life if not?

More than an hour later…

A black ball was floating on the red lava as if it was in the water.

Kubler sat inside with Leylin, face pale. Watching the lava outside through a magic screen, he stammered out, “My… my Lord, this plan is too dangerous!”

Once the ball was crushed, they would be devoured by endless lava! Even if he was a Magus, this kind of horrifying death made him shiver.

“Calm down!” Leylin stared at lava outside calmly.

*Blub! Blub!* The lava had reached its boiling point, and the whole cave began to tremble, dust falling off the walls.

[Beep! Eruption will occur in 10, 9, 8…]

The A.I. Chip had begun the final countdown.

“Now!” Leylin’s eyes flashed, and the terrifying strength of a rank 3 Magus burst forth.

“Freeze!” With his hands as the centre, a layer of deep blue ice spread out along the walls. Cracking sounds rang out as this phenomenon soon extended to the outside, enveloping the ball in ice.

This ice was so cold even the boiling lava could not melt it. White vapours arose as the two surfaces came into contact.

“This can earn us some time!” Leylin said with a smile, and then looked at the screen of the A.I. Chip.

[3! 2! 1! Critical limit reached!]

*Boom!* With the prompt of the A.I. Chip, Leylin and Kubler felt tremors envelop the ball. It was like they had entered the body of a terrifying ancient monster, and that monster had woken up with a thundering roar!

“AAAAAAH!” Kubler screamed with fear, his hands waving around as he struggled to find something to hold on to.

Then, he felt a force that could be from the explosion of the universe as a huge impulse hit the bottom of the rock ball. The lava rose into the sky like a dragon taking flight, except this dragon had a small rock ball on the front.

Lava surrounded them and rushed into the passage. The ball shook continuously as it hit wall after wall, but what frightened Kubler to death was instead the high gravity!

As the ball had rushed up like a rocket, the two inside dealt with an equally large gravitational force.

The intense force pulled at Kubler’s skin, making him feel like he was being bitten all over by ants. The pain made him lie on the ground like a frog, and he felt like if he wasn’t a Warlock with a strengthened body, he would have died long ago.

Booms sounded out and the trembling continued. The terrifying power of nature made Kubler feel like a tiny ant. All he could do now was pray; pray for an early release from this torment, pray that this rock ball would hold out

Thumps and explosive noises continued to sound out. This was a giant volcanic range, and today its central volcano had accumulated enough pressure to erupt.

Masses of black smog were ejected into the sky, forming a sea of gray clouds that shrouded the nearby lands in darkness.

Rivulets of lava flowed down the mountain slopes, looking like arteries on flesh.

*BOOM!* Finally, with a huge explosion that caused an earthquake, the volcano erupted.

It was as if heaven and earth were torn asunder, and the world was ruined. Red lava, dotted with gold, burst into the sky transforming into countless fire dragons that flew in every direction.

Fire raged, and explosions rang forth even as the earth quaked. It was like armageddon.

Amidst this terrifying lava were multiple rocks. Boulders that were as large as hills hit the ground with great force, cracking the earth underneath and ruining everything around them.

*Bang!* Among the countless boulders in the sky was one rock with a particularly regular shape.

This rock ball streaked across the ground, leaving behind it a long track of burnt black. The surface of the ball was still a dull red, as if it was ready to melt any moment.

The ball soon began to crack apart, and a portion was thrown off with a bang, revealing a hollow interior.

“So this is the central continent ?” Leylin came out of the ball, exhaling a breath that was as hot as fire itself.

The hellish scene nearby did not affect him. Instead, he was filled with delightful anticipation. “The central continent, here I come.” he murmured in his mind.

It took a while for Kubler to slowly crawl out of the ball, coughing. His body was in a mess, with some burn marks on it.

The layer of ice Leylin had made had been thawed within a few dozen seconds of the eruption. Afterwards, the rock ball had heated up to extremely high temperatures. They would have been roasted had they not been Magi.

“Exciting! This is so exciting!” After retching for a while, Kubler wiped his sweat off, fear in his eyes.

“Relax! We got out safely, didn’t we?” Leylin turned back and smiled. “It’s quite fair for us to pay a small price for concentrating a day’s journey into a few minutes!”

“Yes, my Lord!” Kubler could do nothing but smile.

“So is this the central continent?” Seeing Kubler collect himself, Leylin wanted to confirm it with him.
“Yes!” Kubler said even as his expression turned complicated, “This is the Mt. Asura of the central continent. The land that we are standing on now is undoubtedly of the central continent.”

……

Three days later, in a small town.

A giant gleaming revolving gate swung around as carriages and people wearing strange clothes passed by, some of them official Magi.

Leylin was sitting in a hotel room, the pudding and juice in front of him all but untouched. He was staring outside with a dreamy gaze.

At that time, the door was opened with a thump and Kubler stepped in.

“My Lord! I’ve bought tickets for an airship heading to the Black River Domain that leaves tomorrow morning! In at most four days, we will arrive at the headquarters of the Ouroboros Clan!” His voice was tinted with excitement.

  1. Not like anyone in the Subterranean world can stop Leylin. Especially when that Aura around the statue grows bigger as he hits 4th stage! Becoming a Morning star.

    Well, I doubt he will be returning for a hundred years or so. Till then Celine will probably rank up to 2 with the resources left behind.

      1. Her master was able to reach level 2 with the same technique, so the issue is that celine just lacked talent/resources. Now she has the wealth to make up for lack of talent

        1. her master wasnt rank 2 but rather a semi converted rank 1 magi but the experiments of her master is comparable to a peak rank 1 in which nature alliance attained the small rank guild

          1. Her master wasnt even a semi-converted he only fought to a standstill with an semi-converted one and he was able to give some high grade informations to the 9 Guilds.
            The technique has only 2 levels and to reach the 2 level one needs some Ressources from other worlds which has gone exstinct +10.000 years
            ago…

            ~«Thx»^^ ~«謝謝»^^

          1. For all you guys with weird memory and reading comprehension:
            Her master was NOT a rank 2 FFS… Not even talking about the fact that it’s clearly said that he was a rank 1 semi, somewhere… IF he was a rank 2, they would’ve been a large guild in the past. There’s a clear distinguish in guild ranks by the strongest person in it, described for many, god knows how many, chapters.

        1. So many fools who aren’t reading this novel properly… Her master was a rank 1 magus, not even a semi-converted one, he just had good battle power and managed to fight a semi-converted magus and thus got his guild turned into a small-scale guild. A rank 2 magus would at least have to be from a medium-scaled guild and only large scaled guild has to have one or two. It was mentioned that they need materials that they can’t get to turn into a rank 2 magus, even advancing further inside the rank 1 magus category is really difficult.

    1. A hundred years? More like a few hundred 😛

      That aside, I wonder if the aura will really continue to grow… If that really happens, people will be scared to death when he hits rank 4, 5 and 6 magi… then later on when he hits rank 7 and above? heh…

  2. II thought he made academies to return to the South Coast and invade with his new army.. I hope he rules the 3 worlds in the end… And hopefully Celine dies when he returns. That twisted woman! How is she alive when Baelin isn’t

    1. What did Celine do wrong? She did what she needed to to survive in a Magus World. Baelin wouldn’t have lived for much longer after his purpose as the child of destiny (plot armor) was done. He was much to naive for this world.

        1. Fit of laughter so hard I ended up coughing. I can see laylin doing both. Kills the rank 999 magus then says, “author, your lame and anticlimatic end is not worthy enough for me, die!” and that’s the last word of the last chapter.

    2. Building an army to invade south coast is a pointless waste of time, he needs to rank up as a magus, not play king. This is why he didn’t set up a kingdom in the undercrust

      Besides, if leylin can get to rank 4 magi then he can easily take over the south coast simply by virtue of his personal might.

  3. Thanks for the translations!!

    I thought that that think Leylin made the guy build was a teleportation waypoint (I love those in video games). I guess he’s not powerful enough for that yet?

      1. Would make alot of sence to make one. First what he would bring to the oroboros clan would be a whole world, a poor one but it i
        still has alot of resorces an shit. That would be a great merit witch would probably earn him alot in the clan

  4. ““AAAAAAH!” Kubler screamed with fear, his hands waving around as he struggled to find something to hold on to.” looks like Kubler forgot to make some handles inside that ball
    Also, they didnt forgot to turn left in Albuquerque… seriously, among all the things Leylin has done this trip was too cartoonish in comparison, not complaining tho but it gives a funny feeling since he went all mad scientists some chapters ago

    Thanks for the chapter

  6. Exciting? Shouldn’t it be dangerous since he is scared shitless? Or is he an adrenaline junky lol?
    Anways isn’t Leylin rushing it a bit by going to the snake guild just after 3 days? He could spend atleast a few months and learn a great deal of centrall continent so he has solid information before throwing himself to some guild.
