12 levels of martial artists (because why use numbers):
Man, Earth, Sky, Sun, Moon, Star, Celestial, Spiritual, Imperial, Emperor, Divine, Sacred.
You can now kiss your old screenshot of that list goodbye.
Soul colors :
Pink < Yellow < Green < Blue < Cyan < Purple < Rainbow
Star Rank explanation:
This is not explicitly explained in the novel, but it’s so confusing we decided to put it here.
Within each level, one can be from 1 to 7 star rank. 7 star is the closest to breakthrough and thus next level. Example : Moon level 7 star is closest to Star level.
Peak level: When one is of peak level XX, one is almost at a breakthrough to the next level. As opposed to a simple 7 star rank that is not close to breaking through to the next level.
Momo’s Demon Beasts, a.k.a. Qiu team (the balls):
PiQiu (rubber ball): Blue blooded wolf, obtained at auction house, male, fat little boy.
XiaoHei (little black) a.k.a. HeiQiu (black ball): Black panther, obtained in paradise, male, teenager, bishounen, kuudere.
SheQiu (snake ball): Snake (Nine-Winged Unity Serpent), obtained in paradise, male, adult, ikemen.
MaoQiu (fur ball): Fox, obtained from Tang YunQi, Female, bishoujo.
Translators tell me their levels don’t matter much because the author doesn’t keep us updated, so they weren’t added here. Just remember they’re all high level beasts.
Pun lost in translation : Dead Soul from Dead Soul demon beast is pronounced “Zi Lin”. So Zi Lin’s master is Fu ZiLin.
How sects work:
Wonder why the raws say “逍遥门” ( XiaoYao door?!!!!), but we translate it as “sect”? Here is why: When a sect is made, they need a land to build the sect on. One can refer to a sect depending on its land, its location, its architecture structure, its martial art type, etc. After the sect’s name, every sect always puts a character that describes its policies or residential arrangement or it can just be the name of the sect with “sect” after. That’s why they are still translated as “sect”, even though it might mean “gate” or “pagoda”.
Tian Xin Sect and Qing Cheng sect: they refer to themselves as sects, a very common use.
Xing Luo sect, Xiao Yao sect: they refer themselves as 门, a.k.a. gate => their sect is a big palace/ building, the type of structure that has a very big gate (not all sects like to build a big door, some sects are even deep inside a cave). Inside, they have a compound with plenty of houses and the likes.
Xie Sha sect: they refer themselves as 宗, a.k.a. school/ancestral hall/family. This indicate their sect’s disciples must follow the sect’s ancestor tradition, they even have to worship them as their own ancestor. A little different from clans since clans only consist of family bloodlines, a 宗 is for everyone.
Ji Le sect: they refer themselves as 楼, a.k.a. storied building/pagoda => this indicates that their sect’s building is the type of structure that has many stories, like this:
There are many more but we will update as plot progresses.
