Rebirth of the Thief Who Roamed the World (重生之賊行天下) – Index

Author: Mad Snail (發飆的蝸牛)
Translator: LittleShanks
Sietse, Sergio S.
Links to Raw

Note: Author of Tales of Demons and Gods



Genre: VRMMO, Adventure, Action

The world’s largest VRMMO, Conviction, was almost like a second world for humanity. It had integrated itself into the real world’s economy, with both corporations and individuals seeking their fortunes through the game. In this game, Nie Yan prided himself in his Level 180 Thief. He could barely be considered among the top experts in the game. Though, that was the only thing he could take pride in. He was penniless and unable to advance in life; a situation he was forced into by the enemy of his father. If it weren’t for the little money he made by selling off items in Conviction, he would’ve barely been able to eat. In the end, he chose to settle his matters once and for all. He assassinated his father’s enemy. He lay dying shortly after being shot in the pursuit. However, that wasn’t the end of his story. Instead, he awoke moments later to find that he had reincarnated into his past-self. Armed with his experience and knowledge of future events, he sets out to live his life anew.

  1. Welcome and thanks for the chapters.
    it seems Mad Snail has a thing for story’s about people who know what is going to happen it’s cool I’m down for another one

    1. I think that is the best kind of story.. Because most of the time he has noticed the butterfly effect and let’s, so to speak, another butterfly go, and hereby he changes the whole history.

  2. First I want to thank you for bring us this wonderful story. It quickly became one of my faviotes.

    Second I hope your father gets better and don’t you worry about releases family comes first so just do what you can when you can no hurries…those who like/love this story will be willing to wait and haters don’t have to read if they hate it so much.

    Lastly…just for future reference…will there be a set schedule of releases or just a set number per week?

    Once again thank you for all the hard work please take care of yourself.

  3. This novel has the Tales of Demons and Gods vibe. In TDG mc says this girl is the one but later he feels something for the other ones and eventually forms a harem. So in RT its 50% same in the begining. So if you coulddo a little favour and confirm the fact if RT will be same as TDG or not.

    1. It’s not a freaking harem! Do you know what the word harem means? It means marrying multiple women at the same time!

      So sick of idiots calling every novel a harem.

      1. Littleshanks, I went ahead and read ahead, I only see 995 chapters, which…was a really horrible ending. its seriously just a complete write off, so I want to confirm its actually 1000 chapters and not 995, cus 5 chapters might make a huge difference in the ending then, cus as it stands, its pretty bad.

  4. Actually, as a Chinese, I know that these main roles were based on the real person,or called players… In Chinese, many years ago, these great roles have really once appeared in WOW China Server.

  5. Got a question should i pick this back up now? soon? or wait till it has about 300 chapters?

    I stopped reading it because it’s slow releases not going to lie the story was good but honestly how long should I wait before I start reading this again?

  6. Thanks for the translation. I like this much better than Legendary Moonlight Sculptor. It does better job at portraying how MMO worlds work although understandably for story purpose, it did some exaggerations which MMOs would never allow. It is exciting to read and makes me feel like playing MMO in god mode.

  7. Well I was going to check this out until I seen it was written by worthless Madsnail. After the stunt he pulled with TDG and all the bad information I’ve heard about him writing books off or dropping them, I will not read another one of his books.

  8. Does anyone know what the status of the raws are? (completed, in progress? I know that the author is only writting about 1chapter a month for tdg. I dont really want to start reading a story to then have to stop and wait 10 years for it to be finished like with tdg. Thanks in advance! 😀

  9. 15 chapters in, this is looking pretty good. But Im worried it will suffer from the same issues that ruined TDG for me. So Im gonna not get attached to the MC and drop it now instead of 300 chapters and many hours later.

  10. Don’t ever read this novel. Translator isn’t translating anything but still gaining money. In the best part of the novel I waited for 3 days for new chapter but still didn’t released. Enough! I’m never gonna read this novel anymore.

    1. OH NO! You poor soul…. You actually had to wait a whole FOUR days for a new chapter. I really don’t know how you survived the frustration long enough to make that post.

      You shouldn’t be so critical with this kind of release schedule. It’s not like the TL has to translate for us. Translator’s have their own lives too. As long as quality translations come out, why is there any problem? I would be happy even if the TL did less than one chapter a month. The quality of the translation is great, the story itself is great, and even the teaser pictures give me a laugh.

      If you have time to come up with flaws with a translation this great, you should just learn Chinese instead.

      1. Yes wait for one chapter for 4 days. It has 995 chapters, 250 chapters translated so if we do simple mathematic, it’s still have 745 chapters to complete. If we multiply it with 4 we have 2980 days to completion( 8 year ). I think when you’re about to die from old age this novel is going to completed. If you’re an lucky person, you can read the end of this novel at the deathbed.

        1. What’s your solution to that then? Maybe we should kidnap some translators and force them to translate 24/7? Do you know what would happen if the TL drops the project? It would probably never be translated further.
          I dunno know about you, but I don’t really plan on being on my deathbed in 8 years… In fact by that time I’ll hopefully have a higher paying job and subsequently be donating more to translators that use their free time to let others enjoy quality reads.
          Until then, I’ll be happy with any free chapters to read.

          1. If he drops maybe some not greedy translator takes this novel. Because this translator only works for money. Other translators too have lives but they’re 100 hundred times faster than this translator and also they’re gaining less money. Anyway, I’m not gonna read this novel anymore there’s lots of stuff like this novel.

  11. for the synopsis this is basically the same as TDG, I dont know why he does not finish TDG properly and start this one. I looks like at the end is gonna a two novels with a crapy ending

  12. Well, time to start this novel

    I was on the fence about it since I’m still mad about how rushed and abandoned was TDG, but I don’t really blame him since is normal to lost inspiration midway, it had happen to me in the past while writing a story, but I just didn’t like the way he handled it

    I just hope it doesn’t happen with this novel
