WMW Chapter 604

“Since when has the strength of other tribes and the darkness creatures grown to such a point?” Celine bit her lips, blaming herself slightly and feeling a little remorseful.

Leylin’s rule had forced the other races in Twilight Zone to slavery, only to be exploited by human Magi. It was unexpected that in just a hundred years’ time, they had actually gotten powerful again.

If not for Leylin’s appearance today, even if the opponent hadn’t launched a sneak attack they could’ve won just based on this army that infiltrated their borders. It could practically wipe out all the human Magi.

After all, before this the humans had only one rank 3 Magus, Banker.

“Luckily, there’s still him!” Celine looked at Leylin’s silhouette, eyes filled with an unconcealable pride.

As Leylin looked at the beautiful ruler of dark elves, he could not help but let out a chuckle, “Alicia! I didn’t expect to see another familiar face. Not only have you advanced to rank 3, you’ve also become the queen of the dark elves. It’s truly worth congratulating!”

However, as this laughter echoed in the opposing queen’s ears, her entire body grew rigid. It was as if she had been struck by lightning.

The many humiliations that the owner of this voice had brought to the dark elves immediately appeared in her mind, something that Alicia would never forget.

Yes, this new ruler of the dark elves was impressively, Leylin’s old ‘friend’— the matriarch of dark elves, Alicia. Even that time, it was her who had surrendered to Leylin outside Potti City, personally offering the high-grade meditation technique of the dark elves and their piece of magic equipment.

“You’re Leylin! Leylin Farlier!” The opposing queen directed her gaze that was on Celine towards Leylin, gritting her teeth.

When Leylin restrained himself, he seemed just like an ordinary person, and it made the other rank 3s overlook him.

But with Leylin speaking, a sort of confidence that came from a control of the overall situation emerged from him, making him seem outstanding and superior.

“It’s him! The humans’ Radiant Guardian!”

“I’ve seen his portrait before, I’m definitely not wrong!” One after another, the other races exploded with rage. The fear that Leylin instilled in them was etched deeply.

“Mass murderer! Butcher! Leylin Farlier, repay my father’s and the other tribes’ hatred with your blood!” The sturdy dwarf ruler jumped out, a hammer in hand which seemed to be made of thunder.

“Oh! I remember now, you’re that lucky survivor from the dwarf royal family right? The little rascal who hid in the corner of the palace, not daring to move at that time…” Leylin patted his head with an amiable sense of familiarity.

Yet, this expression and his words had instead caused the dwarf to instantly fly into a rage.

Leylin was not bothered by him. He turned his attention to the gnome steering the large robot, “Hm… a mechanical colossus… You gnomes have managed to create another one? The craftsmanship has improved as well, and the problem of low battery has been solved as well!”

“Sir Leylin’s knowledge really leaves me in awe for life. Furthermore, if you hadn’t seized our most precious gnome’s book at that time, I believe we could still have sat down happily for a chat…” The one controlling the frightening colossus was an old, senile gnome whose hands were covered with all sorts of scars and burns.

“Oh, there’s also rank 3 beast emperors,” Leylin looked at the three mountainous darkness creatures at the side, “This is great!”

“What’s great? Is he mad?”

“Even if he is the former Radiant Guardian, for a rank 3 to think of fighting us all together is too arrogant of him…” Many of the tribes began to clamour.

Alicia, on the other hand, was different. People like her had seen how terrifying Leylin could be, and they had a bad premonition instead.

Even if she had advanced to rank 3, the fear she held towards Leylin had once more surfaced from deep in her memories after she saw him in person.

On top of that, he had such a confident expression and there was an enigmatic aura on his body…

Alicia’s expression changed several times, and at last, she kneeled in front of Leylin before the widened eyes of the many Magi and tribes, “Alicia greets the Lord, the Radiant Guardian! Please forgive my tribe’s mistake this time!”

“Grand Matriarch! How can we just let them go like that?”

“Is the humiliation that the humans have already brought us not enough? How can we simply grovel at their feet like that?” Even before Alicia’s allies spoke, the matriarch under her caused an uproar.

“Enough! I am the Grand Matriarch of the dark elves. I will take responsibility for this matter alone!” Alicia responded coldly.

“Haha… Good! Alicia! I admire your ability to have a clear view of things!” Leylin clapped and laughed heartily.

*Roar!* Seeing that something seemed amiss, a small black elephant, one of the beast emperors with large fleshy wings on its back started howling in tandem with a two-headed leopard. Both of them pounced towards Leylin. A terrifying power beyond the normal rank 3 level caused the earth to tremble.

At the same time, a beast emperor in the form of a large blue ape secretly slipped away from behind.

The movements of a few emperor darkness creatures seemed to trigger some sort of chain reaction; the tribes at the opposite side had join forces to attack Leylin together. Ignoring the indecisive dark elves and Alicia who was still kneeling, the dwarf ruler threw the large hammer in his hands with a howl, and terrifying blue thunderbolts swept across the area. The colossus, too, created a roaring sound that caused many rank 2 Magi to retreat with pale faces.

These tribes were attacking with a common target in mind— Leylin!

Four rank 3 attackers led the charge! On top of that were a whole group of fighters that were as strong as rank 1 and 2 Magi, many of them using treasures. Such an attack would leave even Crystal Phase Magi seriously injured as they fled.

In the face of this earth-shattering attack, Leylin’s kept an unchanging expression, chuckling as he spoke, “Do you know why I said this is great just now? It’s because, with all of you gathered together, I don’t have to go through the effort of going to your lairs to finish you off one by one!”

Immediately, a terrifyingly strong energy wave burst forth from his body. A starry domain expanded, engulfing the entire area within it.

Many energies were snuffed out in an instant, and all of the energy attacks within the Morning Star domain had completely dissipated, exposing the silhouettes of the foreign races, all of them at a loss.

All Leylin had done was release the power of his domain, and the joint attack of the many tribes had been nulled completely!

Surging waves! Surging waves of disbelief and fear rolled in their hearts!

All the Magi who had been worried about Leylin just now were stunned. Seeing the tribes’ combined attack, they’d thought nothing could surpass that amount of power. However, the moment Leylin made his move was the moment they realised that what they’d been looking at was like the glow of a firefly in the night. Although such a glow was visible in the dark, once the sun came up, they would disappear without a trace.

The frightening aura being emitted from Leylin’s body was so powerful that these Magi could not help but kneel down, not daring to harbour any other thoughts at all.

“Such strength?” Will stood behind Leylin, but he could not help but kneel either. He only felt that the Leylin now was entirely different from before. He was like the sun, moon and stars in the sky, up high and eternal.

“This… this is the domain that belongs to a Morning Star!” Celine murmured, her tears spilling out helplessly. She finally understood the magnitude of the opportunity she had lost at that time, and that she could never get it back.

*Ka-cha!* As if hitting emergency brakes, the elephant and the two-headed leopard suddenly stopped. They retreated with even greater speed, their bodies bursting forth with blood-red light. Their massive bodies rapidly grew emaciated, making it obvious that they had utilised some secret technique which exhausted a lot of energy.

“Still want to escape?” Leylin shook his head.

Two gigantic, yellowish-brown palms extended from the ground with a sudden boom, grasping the two beast emperors within. The sound of bones shattering could be heard, and be it physical attacks or magical attacks the two could not leave a scratch on the palms..

The two beast emperors looked at Leylin, an obvious plea in their eyes.

“You’re quite smart, even comparable to ordinary humans!” Leylin gasped slightly in admiration, but the pair of gigantic hands suddenly exerted a bit of force.

*Ka-cha! Ka-cha!* Following two loud sounds, the two rank 3 beast emperors had been pinched so hard they exploded.

“Ra– Rank 4! You’ve already advanced to rank 4. You’re a Morning Star Magus!” A voice like that of a dead man echoed from within the throat of the gnome inside the colossus.

Morning Star!

The crowd was sluggish for a moment, unable to react instantly. Only after a while did they suddenly realise what that meant.

Indeed, only a Morning Star Magus would be able to withstand the attacks of the numerous tribes without changing his expression, and even slaughter two beast emperors with just a light touch.

It was just that this happy news for the human Magi was a total tragedy for the tribes!

What did a Morning Star represent? In Twilight Zone, such a person was invincible! And with Leylin’s youth, these tribes would probably have to be enslaved for thousands of years.

This was still fortunate. If Leylin wanted to hold them responsible for their rebellion, their entire race would probably go extinct! A Morning Star’s anger was exactly that terrifying.

The large hammer-shaped magic artifact in the dwarven ruler’s hands fell to the ground with a bang, and two streaks of blood flowed down from his eyes. Although many of the tribes had been stripped of all their abilities in the Morning Star field and were lying limp on the ground like dead dogs, he was still barely able to stand, “Oh, Fate! Why are you so unjust, even allowing that murderer to become a Morning Star in the sky? And for us of the other tribes, there’s only suffering?”

Pearls of blood flowed down his eyes with each word he spoke. And just as his resentful questions ended, the radiance in the dwarven ruler’s eyes dimmed. He was dead.

“There’s still one more!” Leylin stretched out his hand and grabbed the air, and it was as if a huge hand appeared out of nowhere and a large blue ape was captured.

Once the large blue ape fell onto the ground with a bang, it kowtowed to Leylin repeatedly, continuously begging for forgiveness.

        1. Maybe it is one of the girls that that one dude, one of the child of destiny, is protecting? Because I swear, Leylin would do everything to stop his genes from spreading.

          1. Why would Leylin stop the guys genes from spreading? Do you honestly think some low level trash from the backwater Twilight Zone could ever pose a threat to the MC?

          2. No, but he might regret leaving subpar descendants. I mean that is his reason why he is waiting to breakthrough his bloodline limitations before impregnating Freya right? So that his descendants would not be so weak. Also, if he just lets his seed go anywhere, why is Celine not preggers? I mean they have been doing it a lot. I’d say, probably done it more with Celine than with Freya.

          3. Just because his father was the child of destiny doesn’t mean that same for the son, even the Magi he became was something weird ‘bio-something’ which when a previous Magi doesn’t wasn’t to die so becomes a weapon (I don’t know how accurate his is by I’m pretty sure it’s something​ similar). This cannot be inherited. So Will being talented is purely a coincidence

          4. I think there is a misunderstanding in what I meant. What I meant was that maybe Will is the son of one of the two girls he met when he first arrived. And that it is not possible that Will is Leylin’s as he wouldn’t really want to spread his genes. So most likely, Will’s father is just some random person and not Leylin.

          5. his mother being an acolyte and his father leaving for heroic things, it is quite clear he was the bio-boosted guy’s child

        2. Oh, right… I kinda dismissed that since the mc killed baelin, but it’s true that his wife never showed up. He probably gave her a kid before heading off. Weird that he’d join the organization of the guy who killed his father… But then again, he never knew who his father even was.

    1. alicia was the dark elf matriach high rank 2 with the crown of shadows that put herself out there to be used by leylin. he took the crown the very one he used in the pocket dimension to get the lamia fingerbone, but didn’t want her body he put her in control of the dark elves at that time not as a queen and only rank 2

  1. He is always taking it to far… It’s like he only kowns how to rule with power and slavery. When this system leaves him with the most work in the end. Not evicent at all. He should just let the ai-chip make a plan since he is incable of ruling anything decently.

    1. well think of it this way if you grew up only ever seeing the strong control the weak and you slowly become one of those that are strong what do you do, 1 rule with an iron fist. 2 let everyone be equal. 3 try and make a utopia. now 2 of those options are possible but hardly plausible. in a world with limited resources and constant fights to the death would you want to treat people well and all that when its a dog eat dog world and they will likely kill you for showing weakness

    2. um, i don’t know if we are reading the same novel cause if you haven’t noticed magi aren’t like ordinary mortals. so one must have power to rule and leylin is a pretty good leader; take the ouroborous clan for example.

    3. If the A.I chip was so perfect, it should have been able to do just that. But the author is Chinese and being half Chinese myself i find my sense of imagination very lacking. He doesn’t explore every variable, only touching on some parts. All of these stories are essentially unoriginal, most western novels are too. That aside, the story is bullshit and you can clearly understand the weird power-hungry nature of Asians asserted on a completely unrealistic Medieval Europe environment.

      1. LoL. I agree 100%, except that… the novel is very fun! And I think part of the fun is the absurdity of the novel´s concept and MC´s action….

      2. Mate what do you expect would happen if there were a few people on earth who could destroy countries in days and turn continents into irradiated wasteland if they wanted to just relying on their own power? Do you think there would still be democracy? How is it bullsi*t? Ai chip isn’t a god and even if it came up with a long term sytem that rely on ubringing of the people to keep the rule, some odd ones will always surface in a world that can only be controlled by strenght… What if some odd genius is born and somehow reaches rank 4 in 200 years? What kind of bullsi*t system can keep him in check you tell me? Besides resources are just way too limited in the Twilight zone to keep conflict from happening… Add different races to that chaotic soup it’s practically impossible to create a utopia if you are not some god who can provide what everyone needs without asking any compensation…

        1. it also means that there will be no region in the end at all, end of story. If people acted realistically, they wouldn’t stay anywhere near where Leylin ruled, but its chinese and it’s repetitive. Democracy is futile, Communism is futile and turning your land into the roman empire never works, ask the romans oh wait…

          1. Ofc there would be no religion… Or rather people like Leylin or the more powerful beings that can comprehend laws would be seen as gods instead… What do you mean people wouldn’t stay near where Leylin rules? Are they all willingly going to heaven or something? Are they all going to fuse into the rocks? Jumping into lava maybe? Where can they go with the Twilight Zone being ruled by Leylin and the rest of the world ruled by other powerful beings? Lol you made me laugh haha…

        2. Let me tell you guys a bit of history (from our earth)
          2nd world war the american people created the ATOMIC BOMB and fired on at Hiroshima(JAPAN) 100.000 people died and even more got cancer. At that day america forced Japan with their power to give up or they would fire even more of these bombs. In america most people ignored the fact that they killed 100.000 innocent people to achieve peace…
          America gad the power to control the world but some american revolutioner believed that their must be someone to control and stop america so these americans gave the blueprint for the atomic bombs to russia…
          And now days even some european counties posses a few atomic bombs…
          So no one with atomic bombs dare to attack each other.

          Now imagine all these atomic bombs are rank 4 MORNING STARS(they can contamine every place for millions of years) and all these countries are clans…
          Do you understand this ?
          Power controls the world.
          If a madman had something that can instantly whenever he wants destroy countries and it is impossible to kill that guy he got control the world.

          Morals are NOT passed down with genes they are learned if u dont teach him morals than he can do whatever he want.

          Even society works like this the state make laws and punish does who dont obey. They also teach u morals.

          Morals and laws restrain ones instincts and desires.

          Sry i am not that good at english…

          ~«Thx»^^ ~«谢谢»^^

    4. It is not that he can’t, he just doesn’t care. To him, this whole thing in the Twillight Realm was just to get resources. He doesn’t care about ruling and he doesn’t want to. He also only came back to the Twillight Realm, again, for the resources in the Ice Cave. He only checked on the “kingdom” out of curiosity since he was already there.

      He isn’t trying to build anything. That is why he just left everything to celine and left, because that is the easiest and fastest way.

      1. To that i say, if he used the A.I chip he could have taken their lunch money in more efficient way. I’m not saying he should rule, but that he has a very stupid roundabout way of thinking. He calls himself a scientist for goodness sake!

    5. Can’t you see that he just doesn’t care enough to even bother ruling the twilight zone? Why would he want to give his serious attention to ruling a bunch of backwater peasents? He only wanted to keep the ice cave with the scorpion emperors corpse safe out of random elements reach and created an organization that will manage to do that just enough for a century or so… He doesn’t care even if the whole twilight zone were to be destroyed as long as he can get benefits from that cave since there is literally nothing beneficial for him left in the whole twilight zone other than that… But he also doesn’t care enough to bother destroying the whole twilight zone even if he can…

  2. Welp maybe the other races found another inheritance letting them reach rank so quickly? leylin should definitely investigate on this

    1. Most of them would have already had race-specific techniques capable of reaching rank 3.
      It’s likely they were just more united than the humans and were capable of pouring resources into their leaders.

    2. Yeah, there got to be something going on. I can understand Banker with the collective knowledge of the academy and then a fortuitous encounter. But three beasts, gnomes, dwarf, and the dark elves? Especially when they have been oppressed. Either it’s a butterfly effect that Leylin set in motion when he conquered the whole region and killing the child of destiny or mastermind/ice world?

  3. Yeah, the title says it all. I only hope that the following chapter or chapters aren’t wasted on how Leylin plays around with these Rank 3 critters—or their long-winded reactions to that fact—now that anything below Rank 4 is essentially harmless in his eyes.

    PS: Wow, yet another Patreon milestone achieved; thanks to all the patrons, as well as to the translators doing their best!

  4. It looks like the humans grew complacent while the other races were pushed by the hardship, but i guess some of the rank 3 beasts were artificially raised using some kind of dangerous forbidden technique

    1. Idk about the other races but it was stated that the beasts were mutated. I don’t think any of the other races have the know-how to manipulate genes and make mutated beasts. I think it was just a coincidence that there were 3 mutated rank 3 beasts that appeared at the same time. Unless like others have said and the icy world played a part.

  5. Still think Leylin should make a clone, give it something like the red dragon bloodline and meditation technique and let it run the show while it grows. He can even tamper with the genitics to be more powerful. It would never surpass his ability because it doesn’t have the AI chip, so locality would be nearly guaranteed. If he then converted a few more into the dragon warlock he could make a sustainable population of troops that can reach Morningstar level and be totally loyal to him and his clone.

  6. Have a 3 some with Celine and the Elf Queen XD

    Also, if he makes all the races join together and get along rather than making a single race rule, then these kinda rebellions would be a lot less…

  7. Thanks for the chapter OMA and Theo! There’s no way Will has blood relations to Leylin. Leylin explicitly made sure he never left his genes anywhere before reaching Morning Star in case people made use of his bloodline against him. There were curses and such that could extinguish bloodlines.

  8. I wonder if he will open path to outside twilight zone and explore other layers of underworld, twilight zone was isolated because damage from rank 4 magus , he can open path now.

  9. “Ra– Rank 4! You’ve already advanced to rank 4. You’re a Morning Star Magus!” A voice like that of a dead man echoed from within the throat of the gnome inside the colossus.

    Actually, he’s at the peak of rank 4 and will soon be a rank 5, but I guess you wouldn’t know with your limited knowledge… Hell, the mc isn’t really using any power either. Would be extremely amusing if he transformed into a giant kemoyin serpent right there, people would piss their pants even at just the size of him.
