GDC Chapter 1


“Great news! Wei WuXian has died!”

Less than a day has passed since the siege in LuanZang Hill, and the news spreads through the cultivation world as if it sprouted wings, surpassing even the speed of warfare.

For a while, from the most prominent clans to rogue cultivators, everyone is discussing the siege that was lead by the Four Great Clans and followed by hundreds of smaller ones.

“The YiLing Patriarch has died? Who could have killed him?”

“Who other than his shidi, Jiang Cheng, putting an end to his own relative for the greater good. Jiang Cheng led the Four Clans of YunmengJiang, LanlingJin, GusuLan, and QingheNie to destroy his “den”—LuanZang Hill.”

“I must say, good riddance!”

“Good riddance indeed! We finally eliminated this scourge.”

“If not for the YunmengJiang clan’s adopting and teaching him, he would have been a hobo living on the streets, let alone causing mayhem as bold as the ones these days. The head of the Jiang clan raised him as her own child, yet he defected them and became the enemy of the cultivation world, bringing shame upon the the Jiang clan, even leading to its near-extermination. He is the prime example of biting the hand that feeds him!”

“Jiang Cheng allowed this fellow to live for too long. If I were him, at the time of the defection, I wouldn’t have just stabbed him. In fact, I would have thoroughly examined the disciples of the clan again, so that he doesn’t do those crazy things he did later on. Who cares about the so called ‘considerations’ that he gave to his childhood friend.”

“That’s merely hearsay. Although Jiang Cheng was one of the main forces, he did not give Wei WuXian the final blow. Because he cultivates the Demon Path, Wei WuXian’s powers had backfired and he was ripped to pieces.”

“Hahahaha… That’s karma! The ghost soldiers that he created are like unleashed dogs, biting everyone that they come across. It serves him right to be chewed to death!”

“But, if not for Jiang Cheng making a plan that aimed at Wei WuXian’s weaknesses, the siege might not have succeeded. Should I remind you folks of the item that Wei WuXian possesses? Did you forget about the day that three thousand skilled cultivators were completely annihilated?”

“I heard that it was more than three thousand, possibly five thousand.”

“He’s most certainly out of his mind.”

“It’s a good thing that he destroyed that evil weapon before he died. Otherwise, if it was left in this world to harm humankind, his sins would have been worse.”

“Oh well… You know, back then, Wei WuXian was one of the most promising cultivators, coming from a highly distinguished clan and finding success at a young age. How on Earth did he end up where he is now?”

“This proves that one can only cultivate by following the right path. Using these dishonest practices would only seem beneficial at first glance. Look, what happened in the end? Not even a whole corpse was left of him.”

“Not everything was because of his cultivation path. Wei WuXian’s personality is quite immoral. One’s deeds will be paid, one way or another; what goes around always comes around.”

After Wei WuXian’s death, the period is drawn on the topic. The discussions of the people are mostly the same, with a few unconventional opinions being brought down immediately.

However, the elephant in the room stayed in the back of everyone’s mind.

Nobody could summon Wei WuXian’s soul, which meant that his soul had disappeared.

It might have been torn apart by the millions of ghosts that devoured him.

Or, it might have escaped.

If was the first, then all is well. Then again, nobody doubts the fact that the YiLing Patriarch has the power to move mountains and empty seas. If was the last, his soul would eventually return to revive in his body. When the day comes, the cultivation world, or even all of mortal land, would be faced with the most insane damnation and revenge, sinking into nothing but chaos and despair.

The various clans set one hundred and twenty stone beasts on top of LuanZang Hill and initiated frequent soul-summoning rituals, followed by heightened vigilance and searches for strange occurrences from all over the world.

In the first year, nothing happened.

In the second year, nothing happened.

In the third year, nothing happened.

In the thirteenth year, nothing happened either.

More and more people were starting to believe that, maybe, the YiLing Patriarch actually perished.

Even if he was capable of turning the world upside down, it was finally his turn to be toppled over.

Nobody would remain at the top for all of eternity—legends are only legends.

    1. Yeah, but the current translator also said that she could probably only able to translate until chap 24 as hasn’t found a way to get the rest of the chapters

  1. This is one of the best bl novels out there so I’m very happy someone took over. The other translator had long sinced announced that any translators can pick it up since they were not confident of the accuracy of the translation. I also tried reading mtl and it had given me a massive headache and couldn’t understand a thing so the previous translator really put an effort to have it released in an way that we can understand. Additionally, they can only translate up to a certain point so it’s good that someone took over at this early stage. Really thankful for the previous and current translation group. Thank you!

      1. Machine Translation(or google translation).They’re quite awful.Awful grammar and sentences hardly make any sense.

  2. Oh my! Oh my! Oh my! Thank you!

    I had been wanting to read this novel for a long time. What with all the great reviews but dare not because of the stop and go translations, thinking I will just torture myself with the wait and suspense. Now I’m happy that you guys picked this up. Hopefully with your records of completed mangas this novel will be translated to the end too. Thank you!!!

  3. Thank you very much for picking this up. I love this story. Also tried MTL, but i had to give up after 1 chapter.

  4. I think the last translator did a pretty good job, i dont know why some people say the translation wasn’t as good. Plus , i dont want to be desagreable but isn’t it simple politness to inform thé previous translatior before translating a novel?
    Im not sure but i have the impression enxio wasn’ t informed?

    Please correct me if i am wrong. I dont want to offence anyone i just want to know.

  5. This is being translated by enxiao however on her home page she wrote she will advance in the one plot until someone takes an interest and pick this up, she translated till chapter 11

  6. Not sure if this was mentioned somewhere or already asked by other peeps, why not continuing from last translated chapter but re-start from first chapter?

    It seems to me that TFOD/GODC has chapters with high word count.

    Though the quality of the translation is higher from the previous translator.

  7. Oh my BL God! You guys will be re translating to?!
    This is so Hug Ur Mama Amazing!

    I’m so lucky to be alive 😢

  8. Less than a day has passed since the siege in LuanZang Hill, and the news spreads through the cultivation world as if it sprouted wings, surpassing even the speed of warfare.
