Chapter 442 – Sect Master Nie

That outburst aroused the suspicions of the disciples of the Divine Feathers Sect and they all turned to look at Nie Li. True, his wealth was far beyond reasonable. How could an ordinary Divine Feathers Sect disciple possess such wealth?

If he really does have support from the demon clan, then Nie Li must never ascend up to the Acting Sect Master’s position.

Nie Li lightly smiled. “Long Tianming, what else do you accuse me of? Say all you want!”

Long Tianming was simply a thief crying thief!

Long Tianming knelt towards the five Hierarchs. “Five Lord Hierarchs, for the sake of our Divine Feathers Sect, we cannot hand over the authority of our sect to this person!”

The five Hierarchs were silent at Long Tianming’s words. They only felt humor at Long Tianming’s words.
If Nie Li really was a spy from the demon clan, why would be pay such a huge price for just the Acting Sect Master’s position?

Everything else aside, there was the fact that Nie Li had given those priceless elixirs to the five Hierarchs. Those elixirs alone, were far more valuable than the Acting Sect Master’s position! Furthermore, Nie Li had been able to nurture so many Dao of Dragon Realm experts. Such a force would be enough to turn the entire Divine Feathers Sect on its head!

Therefore, Long Tianming’s accusations were baseless!
Hierarch Martialsky laughed, “Long Tianming, you should not accuse a fellow sect member without any evidence!”

“Sect Master, do not be deceived. Give me a month and I’ll definitely find evidence of him communicating with our enemies!” Long Tianming pressed. The position of the Acting Sect Master was about to be stolen from him and he could only watch. He was in extreme despair.
Hierarch Skycloud coldly snorted, “Long Tianming, Nie Li is my own disciple. You say that he’s communicating with the enemy and is a traitor to the sect. Are you accusing me as well?”

“Lord Hierarch Skycloud, I wouldn’t dare. I only hope that you won’t be deceived by this vile person!” Long Tianming was desperate. He simply couldn’t understand why the two Hierarchs would be so supportive of Nie Li. Was it really just because of Nie Li’s strength?

Now, Hierarch Linglong, who’d been standing to the side, spoke up. “Long Tianming, you’re a descendent of my Dragonseal Family. You must show some generosity. Since you’ve lost, the position of the Acting Sect Master naturally goes to Nie Li!”

Even Hierarch Linglong was on Nie Li’s side? Long Tianming was hit by a sudden surge of sorrow. Even his own grandmother was helping an outsider, while he was being left to fend for himself. What else could he do?

He could only surrender the position of the Acting Sect Master over to Nie Li!
He had done so much! So why was fate so unfair to him!

Nie Li’s eyes fell on Long Tianming as the corner of his mouth rose to a smile. According to the trajectory of his previous life, once Long Tianming took the Acting Sect Master’s position, he’d push the Divine Feathers Sect to the abyss of ruin. But now, in this life, Nie Li wasn’t going to let that happen!

No matter how scheming Long Tianming was, how could he possibly compete against Nie Li, who had experienced two lifetimes?
Nie Li’s resources were more than enough to crush Long Tianming beneath his feet!
Once Nie Li became the Acting Sect Master, not even Long Tianming would be able to threaten him!

What Nie Li was concerned with wasn’t some lackey like Long Tianming — it was the entire Demon God’s Sect!

Nie Li looked towards the five Hierarchs and cupped his hands. “Many thanks to the support of the Hierarchs. If I become the Sect Master, then the Divine Feathers Sect will definitely gain more Martial Ancestor Realms! And I will definitely lead the sect towards true glory!”

The five Hierarchs couldn’t help smiling and nodding at Nie Li’s words. They firmly believed that he could achieve those claims.
Long Tianming widened his eyes and lost control of his laughter. “What basis do you have to say that you can take the position of the Sect Master? What makes you think you could lead the Divine Feathers Sect to glory? Who doesn’t know how to spout pretty words? Who’d believe your crap!”
“Long Tianming, you’re too impudent!” Hierarch Martialsky deeply rebuked.

Long Tianming struggled along with his unwillingness to admit defeat. “Sect Master, I only wish for you not to be deceived by this vile person!”

Nie Li, however, smiled as he looked at Long Tianming. It didn’t matter how hard Long Tianming struggled; it was futile! All five Hierarchs were already on Nie Li’s side. Even if Nie Li wanted to quit the position, the five Hierarchs would be begging for him to return.

Long Tianming still couldn’t understand that. He thought Nie Li had only relied on flowery words to get the position.

How could Long Tianming possibly guess that Nie Li had bought the five Hierarchs with a large quantity of elixirs? Each of the Hierarchs had experienced leaps and bounds in their cultivation upon taking those elixirs. How could they possibly let Nie Li go after that?

Forget about Acting Sect Master, Hierarch Martialsky would’ve even handed over the Sect Master’s position! Hierarch Martialsky couldn’t be more eager to retire and become a care-free Grand Elder!

Furthermore, Nie Li had so many Dao of Dragon Realm experts under his command. Those were already sufficient to prove Nie Li’s strength, so what else would they have to worry about?

Hierarch Linglong coldly snorted, “Long Tianming has no respect for his elders. All positions and status are to be revoked and he is sentenced to house arrest for ten months to ponder over his mistakes!”
Hierarch Linglong’s words thoroughly severed all of Long Tianming’s hopes.

“No! How is this possible! How could I lose!” Long Tianming nearly went crazy. Just as the Acting Sect Master’s position was about to land in his hands, it was snatched away in an instant. That drop in elevation drove Long Tianming thoroughly insane.

Several Dao of Dragon Realm experts of the Dragonseal Family restrained Long Tianming and flew him away. What awaited Long Tianming was nothing but a sealed, icy-cold chamber.

The experts of the Divine Feathers Sect exchanged looks. None of them had expected such a conclusion. None of them knew much about Nie Li, and while they weren’t paying attention, he’d casually strolled up and taken the position of Acting Sect Master. The conclusion had been determined; it’d be unwise for any of them to challenge it.
“I, Martialsky, formally announce that I will be withdrawing to behind the scenes. The Sect Master’s position of the Divine Feathers Sect will go to Nie Li!” Hierarch Martialsky’s voice resonated in the ears of every disciple.

Skipped Acting Sect Master and straight to Sect Master?

Did something like that really just happen?

Wasn’t that simply too strange?
However, the Sect Master’s words held enormous weight and there weren’t any objections from the four other Hierarchs. If anyone else objected, wouldn’t they simply be asking for death?

“We pay our respects to Sect Master Nie!”

“Pay our respects to Sect Master Nie!”

The disciples of the Divine Feathers Sect all knelt towards Nie Li.

Nie Li raise his head towards the sky. Hierarch Martialsky’s actions were only meant to express goodwill towards Nie Li. But even so, Nie Li accepted it.
“From today on, I, Nie Li will watch over the Divine Feathers Sect. In a month, I will rewrite the rules of our sect. All disciples are to heed my orders. I, Nie Li, swear to take the Divine Feathers Sect towards glory!” Nie Li’s voice resounded throughout the Divine Feathers Sect.

“Sect Master Nie…”

“Sect Master Nie…” The howling voices of Divine Feathers Sect disciples reverberated throughout the sky.

90 thoughts on “TDG Chapter 442” - NO SPOILERS and NO CURSING

  1. Thanks for the translation!

    Rather than it being rushed, I feel like the author trapped himself in his plot. He set himself up to have this epic battle in the colosseum for the position of sect master….only to realize that the force Nie Li has completely out matches the villain and opposition he created. He either had to make Tianming have a crazy trump card, or just progress the plot and get to the boss that he’s been building up to, the Sage Emperor.

    I’m kinda happy about this though. Because even though it was an awkward way to progress things, I’m glad it happened. I hate it when an author just stretches out a conflict because they don’t know how to progress. I get sooooo bored with those stories and I’m glad this one allows me to see a rainbow of villains that Nie Li can overcome and just move on to the next stupid bozo.(wow I feel like I’m 80 using that word)

    Anyway, I’ve had my tangent, so feel free to agree or disagree, that’s what a comment system is all about.

    1. Actually I prefer this cause come on the whole fight the villain in the final round and find out that they were actually under prepared for some super trump card is kinda overplayed. This is just funny to see how the prideful and arrogant enemy suffers from some of the most simple and stupid counters like seriously in the earlier chapters nie Li had to actually try somewhat. Example against the sacred family or in the abyss prison realm he actually had to be strategic and take steps but this time it’s just buy a bunch of op people, snake a girl fall for you and finally get a bunch of op items from dumb luck or ‘fate’ seriously it’s quite a change from other stories and that’s what makes me laugh

    2. What kind of logic is this? Author trapped himself in his own “plot?!” Author realizes too late that the MC he created is stronger than the villains?! What?! Sigh… Come on now… he wrote the story, the author isn’t gonna get trapped by his own story. Plus, if Nie Li is stronger than Tianming, all the author had to do is make Tianming stronger. It’s his story.

      It’s plain as day, that the story is being rushed. In the last 7 months the author has released only 10 chapters for TDG…10. So don’t bother creating some mega excuse to explain away what’s happening with TDG. The author has lost interest in TDG, and is rushing it to a finish. Heck, it’s been almost a month since the release of the last chapter(which is chapter 444). In fact, the author is now working on a new novel, which he started early 2016. His new novel already has 335 chapters, and gets 2 new chapters a day. BTW… this author has a history of not finishing his novels.

      1. I wasn’t really theorizing anything, so there wasn’t much excuse making. I was simply stating what I thought were the two coherant options the author could make in his story.

        As for the author being trapped, well what I meant was that if you’ve written a story, you know that the plot is never as you plan it out, and inevitably gets change along the way. I often see a lot of “doors” or plot points the author abandons, and these just seem like avenues he’s left open for himself if he wants to go that way or use it as an excuse to patch a plot hole later. But with this instance, it seems that he didn’t have much to go on, so he was forced to dispose of Tianming, as the story wasn’t turning out as he hoped.
        I fear because of the things I just named, he’s going to rush ahead and finish this book sloppy. 🙁
        I hope the things you mentioned don’t come to pass. This book was my first LN and I’m quite attached to it.

        1. “I hope the things you mentioned don’t come to pass. This book was my first LN and I’m quite attached to it.”

          Sigh…I know how you feel. I also really like this novel…but things don’t look too good for the future of TDG. Here’s to hoping I’m wrong, and the author goes back to properly working on TDG. I’m not keeping my hopes up too up though… :C

        2. Honestly i feel like the author knows what he’s doing and the story isn’t rushed. What I mean is, as it is said through the story every now and then, how can anyone compete with Nie Li when he experienced two lives and know everything about them and their actions? They just can’t, and that’s why Nie Li just rolls over them otherwise it would be pointless to have him resurrects. Every opponent Nie Li is facing with his previous life knowledge follows the same logic: opponent is strong/at the top of his own reality and looks down on Nie Li then with his vast knowledge and ressources NL finds a way to just overpower them in a suprisingly fast way. In my opinion the very fact that people are feeling the story is rushed is a good thing because that’s exactly what people in TDG universe should feel. NL is indeed OP as hell and shouldn’t be doing 1% of what he’s doing. That leaves the “real” opponents that NL will have to face soon imo, those that NL didn’t faced in his previous life/doesn’t know much about. The world has already changed drasticaly compared to his previous life due to his actions so he is bound to meet unpredictable situations and i feel like this is what the author want to emphasize, not the pointless struggles of a god tier 500yo OP MC vs 20ish years old brats. I’m sure there is alot to cover just with the Demon Lord and his growth that will imo indirectly be related to NL in the future.

          Just my two cents.

  2. So are we just going to ignore that he completely broke the requirement of the Central District being a requirement back in chapter 348? One of the main reasons our MC was so interested in the Central District was to get the sect master spot… Then that requirement just gets glossed over. It’s one thing if he would have gotten Acting Sect Master spot, as they might not that rule for that SPECIFIC position, but they do for this one, so wth author? Maybe no one noticed since it was almost 100 chapters ago, but i’ve marathoned this LN from chapter 1 to now and that’s a huge plot hole…. Any explanations?

  3. Ughhhh, this seems… so rushed… orz…

    Yeah, I see what others mean, the author has reached the, “I give no f**ks, I’m burnt out” stage.
