Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 210

Chapter 210: Demon God Slayers (II)

At this point, Chen Zidian almost seemed to be in an excited mood, “Children, you now have boundless opportunities. But the process of growing up is essential, and during this process, you will only be able to rely on yourselves. Only by relying on your own efforts will you obtain real strength.”

“I wish that one day, you will be able to inherit the title of Demon God Slayers, take over our position, and even do better than us.”

“Haochen, is it your magical beast companion that the Demon God Emperor searched for?” Chen Zidian’s look shifted to the other side, in the direction of the deeply sleeping Haoyue.

Long Haochen didn’t dare hide it, unfolding the situation, “It is highly possible, but I don’t dare to be sure of it.”

Chen Zidian’s eyes flashed, “I also reckon it as highly possible. From my investigation, you completed a blood contract with him at the time you went to the Knights’ Saint Mountain. Since this is the case, until you two are powerful enough, don’t let him appear in places where the Demon God Emperor could learn of his existence. He just managed to conceal himself from the Demon God Emperor, so he should be able to keep doing so in the future. Humans need a hero like the Scion of Samsara of that time.

I came today to encourage you, but also to tell you about a story behind-the-scenes.

Since 6000 years ago, we humans spared no efforts to develop, trying to contend against the demon powerhouses. But even now, we are still unable to genuinely contend against the demons. The main reason for this are the 72 demon gods. It is precisely because of their strength that we have no choice but to rely on our natural barriers to resist them. And this is only under the premise that the six of us are keeping the Demon God Emperor in check. In case we die, if the Demon God Emperor directly comes to attack us humans, the natural defenses will not be of use anymore.

Since 300 years ago, we have already killed 39 demon gods, one after another. Among them, the highest ranked was the 4th demon god. But some new ones filled the gaps without any delay, and even now, they still have 72 demon gods. And do you know why this count doesn’t go down?”

Long Haochen’s group had learned about these matters before, and Han Yu, who had a good understanding of the situation, blurted out almost unconsciously, “It is because of the demon god pillars.

Chen Zidian nodded in response, “Correct, it is precisely because of the demon god pillars. To the demon race, demon gods pillars are divine artifacts. The 72 demon gods, possess 72 of these divine artifacts. As long as the demon god pillars exist, even if a demon god dies, their lineage can still be carried on as before.

Thus, there is only one way to truly kill the demon gods, which is to destroy their demon god pillars at the same time they are killed.

However, as demons’ divine artifacts, how could they be so easy to destroy? After we learned of this secret, we went through countless attempts that have in the end never been successful. But we managed to draw a conclusion from this. To destroy a demon god pillar, the first premise is to have enough power to destroy these formidable weapons, and the second to act before half an hour passes after the demon god’s death, for it to be possible. We formerly almost succeeded once, but ten demon gods suddenly attacked us at the last minute. Since then, demons are paying increased attention to the defense of their demon god pillars, and they are less likely to take their demon god pillar with them as they act.”

Long Haochen asked, “Senior, since demon god pillars are the demon gods’ divine artifacts, what level does a piece of equipment need to reach to destroy it? Does it need to be another divine artifact?”

Chen Zidian shook his head and replied, “The 72 divine god pillars are collectively known as demonic divine artifacts. Their ranking is the same as that of the demon gods, so differences of power exist between them. And even to destroy the weakest demon god pillar, you will need at the very least a piece of epic tier equipment. As a result, the road you have to walk is still long. Otherwise, we could have already destroyed some of the demon god pillars. And there is another thing I have to warn you about. If one day, your cultivation level reaches the ninth step, and you go to get a divine throne’s acknowledgement, you have to act carefully, following the divine thrones’ directions. Because when I had the gotten the approval of four of the divine thrones, I still insisted on striving for the Eternal Divine Throne. I ended up empty-handed and will never ever be able to acquire a divine throne. Your talent is a lot greater than mine at your age, but no matter what, you cannot act as persistently as I did. The help any of the divine thrones will bring you is, after all, bound to be incomparable.”

“Yes! Thank you, senior.”

Chen Zidian took a deep breath, his gaze growing distant, as he declared in disappointment and frustration,”The 72 demon god pillars are the demons’ vital source of power. For each one they lose, the demons’ strength will decrease as a whole, and the heritage they obtain as well. I am afraid this is something we are unable to do anymore, but I hope that during your life, you will be able to destroy a few demon god pillars. The Scion of Light and the Saint Daughter of Samsara’s joint appearance gave humanity a chance for counterattack in the end. I look forward to the day you will succeed.”

“Senior.” Long Haochen suddenly called out.

“Mh?” Chen Zidian gave him a warm look.

Long Haochen declared, “Senior, if one day we can really become a Titled Demon Hunt Squad, will we be able to choose a name for ourselves?”

“Haochen!” At the side, Sheng Yue couldn’t help but shout at him. What kind of honor did the Demon God Slayers hold, for the whole of humanity? And he actually declined such an honor being passed to him? Everyone in the 1st Demon Hunt Squad also felt stunned.

Chen Zidian waved his hands to Sheng Yue, “Then, which title would you wish for your Demon Hunt Squad to possess in the future?”

After muttering to himself irresolutely, Long Haochen raised his head, persistence and resolution appearing in his eyes, “I hope that our Demon Hunt Squad can be called Bright Rays of Sunlight.”

Chen Zidian looked a bit distracted, but he rapidly recovered his usual expression, and replied with a laugh, “Okay, okay, okay. Then call yourselves Bright Rays of Sunlight. Very well, you will not have to aim at succeeding us, but at surpassing us.”

Bright Rays of Sunlight!

These four words resounded in the mind of the seven members of the 1st Demon Hunt Squad. In this instant, everyone seemed to understand what Long Haochen meant by that, and couldn’t help but clench their own fists.

“I cannot help you to grow up, which would spoil things for you by going to excessive lengths for little result. As long as you understand it, your talent will really make you reach the peak, and my objective will be accomplished. But since today, this old man came, he wants to give you a little gift. You are quite lucky, this gift happens to be something the seven of you can share.”

In the next instant, the whole living quarter was filled with holy aura, and seven enormous golden symbols rose like living beings, entering the chests of the seven members of Long Haochen’s group. Everyone felt a short but sharp pain in their bodies, and then they felt a close relation forming between their own blood and flesh and their companions’.

A faint golden fog ascended on everyone’s bodies, a profound exuberant and fantastic feeling flowing through them.

Chen Zidian smiled faintly, and explained, “This is a type of equipment that was created during the early phase of the splendid era, and is an advanced inheritance from the elven’s imperial family. This item’s utility is formidable and can be completely shared between the seven of you. Every time one of you is wounded, the seven of you will share the pain. Its name is Soul Linking Chains. Of course, at anytime, each of you can break the links of the Soul Linking Chains by your own initiative. If you do so, you won’t be affected by the Soul Linking Chains, until you take the initiative to activate it again.”

This simple explanation left Long Haochen’s group of seven pleasantly surprised. An epic tier equipment, this was an epic tier equipment with a peaked level of assistance! Seven people sharing everything, this implied that the seven of them would get to act as a single entity. In a time of danger, their group’s survival rate would increase substantially. At the same time, when they acted separately, every time one of them was attacked, the others would be alerted. This piece of equipment was of boundless utility for their future.

“Do your best then, children. Maybe I won’t see that day, but even in the afterlife, I will pray for the Bright Rays of Sunlight to surpass the Demon God Slayers.”

Bathed in gusts of golden light, Chen Zidian’s silhouette disappeared soundlessly, just as if it turned completely into light.

Without anyone instructing them, the seven of them kneeled down on the ground, paying respects to where he disappeared.

Seeing this scene, Sheng Yue felt completely gratified and full of pride, pride for these children. He didn’t say anything else, simply stepping out, and also disappearing into emptiness.

Some time later, the seven youths forming the 1st soldier grade Demon Hunt Squad got up. Long Haochen turned around, looking at his companions, “Senior Chen is right, we are companions, and should not conceal our backgrounds from each other. I am Long Haochen, have an innate spiritual energy of 97 and the physique of the Scion of Light. My father is the owner of the Divine Throne of Doom and Slaughter of the Knight Temple, Divine Knight of Adjudication Long Xingyu.” He still didn’t know that due to the Light Elemental Fairy, his innate internal spiritual energy had risen to 99.

Even though at that time, everyone already guessed who Long Haochen’s father was, hearing about his innate spiritual energy of 97 left Wang Yuanyuan, Lin Xin, Sima Xian and Chen Ying’er shocked.

Han Yu and Cai’er already knew of this secret, and their reactions weren’t as exaggerated as the others’.

An innate spiritual energy of 97, physique of the Scion of Light… It’s no wonder that he already has such accomplishments at such a young age, that he could directly make the Light Elemental Fairy evolve, and that he is so kindhearted.

Just at that time, while everyone was still completely astonished, Cai’er muttered at Long Haochen’s side, “My whole name is Sheng Cai’er, Heroic Senior Sheng Yue is my great-grandfather. My innate internal spiritual energy is 93, but after acquiring the Spiritual Stove of Samsara, it rose to 100.”

Except from Long Haochen, none of the other five knew of this secret. An innate internal spiritual energy of 97 already left them shocked to the extreme, but with this Scion of Samsara’s inheritance, everyone couldn’t help but tremble for a moment.

  • Belkar

    Thank you!

  • leonT

    Thank youuu

  • JJay

    Thank you for the Chapter!
    And may I just say, the next chapter is going to be awesome as we find out everyone’s glorious heritage and innate talents!!!

  • Generin

    In the teaser Han Yu should have an innate internal spiritual energy of 63 previously if I am not mistaken^^

    • Andy W

      Yes, Han Yu’s innate internal spiritual energy was said to be 63 (in chapter 129), but the raws in the next chapter did say that it was 69. It is not the translator’s fault for the mix up, it is the author’s. However, I wish for it to be changed back to 63 since Han Qian explained that innate talent sharing only occurs if the gap between master and retainer knight is greater than 30, so it would not make sense if Han Yu’s IISE is at 69. On a side note, if LHC does take in Sima Xian as a retainer, innate talent sharing would occur since LHC’s IISE increased to 99, so Sima Xian’s IISE would then increase by half the difference to 84.

      • Generin

        Maybe the Author will correct this but If his whole team has an innate spiritual energy of 69 or higher then the innate talent sharing is useless and it will only be mentioned again to explain Han Yu´s spiritual energy of 80.

      • Hpho1

        That would not be possible, it was mentioned earlier that a person can only have 2 retainers and both of those are filled.

        • Andy W

          In chapter 129, Han Qian stated that he believed only 2 would be possible because having more than 2 would put a strain on the master’s mental capacity. This is not necessarily the case for LHC who we know has a large mental capacity as well as having the physique of a Scion of Light. It is uncertain whether he can take on more retainers or not.

          • Majk

            I believe that he meant that LHC CAN have more but should not since it would be a mental burden for him which would probably hinder his cultivacion and may even be a distraction during battle (like the chains will be until they get used to suddenly feeling pain despite not being hit)

        • Renegade

          I wonder if Cai’er can make two teammates her retainer…

    • Thanks, based on the previous chapters far before, it should be 63. Fixed.

  • Andrew L

    *coughs up blood* Bright Rays of Sunlight? REALLY? Damn this author needs to work on less corny group names. The only one that’s remotely normal is the Shrek Seven Devils. -_-

    Thanks for the chapter!

    • Cloud Riku Quah

      It probably sounds better in Chinese. A lot of things’ names from China sounds better in original Chinese since the translations tends to sound funny or corny.

      • Robin

        I wouldn’t want to translate it into german because then the names would sound really really strange. The squad title is cute and speaks of hope rather than slaughter. Much more fitting for children in my opinion. 😉

      • It sounds pretty much the same in Chinese though

    • AlipJ

      IKR? Lmao. Large Hadron Collider is dumb af.

    • Haha I found this name cute though. He’s only 14/15 years-old after all.

      • RyokoZero

        He will hate the name at 18.

        • Phil O. Zoff

          He will hate it at 180. When he will at the 9th step.

          • Matthew Mather

            You kidding, his team has “big bro has drugs” and despite all being misfits, some of the most gifted members of their generation.

            Additionally I’ll bet that artifact they just got will allow more benefits beyond the (basically it’s HP sharing in rpg terms) effect likely a benefit to the rest of the team for cultivating.

            Not to mention more dues-ex type developements (I mean for 1 he’s the MC, 2 scion of light and 3 super lucky probably due to number 2, not to mention being the scion will probably have all the knight temple supporting him), point is he’s hitting 9th step well before 180.

    • Matthew Mather

      Eh that’s just the translaion, it might sound much better in chinese, it only sounds silly to us as the translated version, also its not HORRIBLE, at leat it doesn’t sound chuuni-ish

    • Daniel Niv

      I mean… maybe they eventually won’t play it straight… and that name will be REALLY REALLY sarcastic because everyone on the team will be some bloodthirsty, cynical, monster (personality-wise) by the time that they can name themselves and become a Demon God Slayer team.

      Lol, it isn’t the author’s fault… it is LHC’s fault…

  • jaelaun

    … And I half expected it to be “Rainbows and Unicorns”.

    • RyokoZero

      So did I.

  • Ewilan

    Merci pour le chapitre !

  • k1nk4

    Thanks for the chapter!

  • kirindas

    Thanks for the new chapter!

  • lordcattank

    thank you very much for the chapter

  • VanillaCustardPie

    Thank you~

  • RedX

    i don’t know why but i think Cai’er will be kidnapped to be the new
    Demon God Emperor

    Note: it’s just a feeling

    • RyokoZero

      She just needs to shed the darkness which is starting to happen. Fine line that Assassins play.

    • michaely5

      huh, i’m interested, i hadn’t even considered that… fun, i’m not thinking that but still, thanks for sharing 🙂

    • JJay

      But wouldn’t it be a huge twist if the Demon God Emperor wants LHC instead of Cai’er? LHC is the knight of the contracted beast all Demons are deathly afraid of… Haoyue wants to kill all demons but LHC becomes the Emperor…?

    • bakaleaf

      Scion of Samsara is the arc enemies of all demon gods!

      Its not possible for her
      but MC as the Scion of Light is, why?
      There is a small thread that separates light and darkness
      If you understand this you well see why my is the best successor.(Hint: MC has Austin with him lol)

  • RyokoZero

    This was a very exciting chapter… all though I don’t like that piece of epic tier the just received. Sounds convenient but also very dangerous.

    Thanks TOTOBRO

  • Zeth

    So good!
    Thank you Totobro and sponsors!

  • bakaleaf

    THanks for the chapter!

  • drealicious

    thanks for the chapter!

  • Anto Wibowo

    Thank you for the chapter!

  • Renegade

    EPIC and BADASS! I love the development of the team. Really excited to see what happens next to the team.

    Knowing all about each other is crucial in building trust! I wonder if other teams are doing the same or if Long HaoChen will spread knowledge to the other teams to do the same for their development.

    • Robin

      I doubt that the other teams will have such a special composition. They probably won’t need to reveal any secrets to tell others about their background. Aside from Yang Wenzhao I don’t think many of the others will have such badass relatives or special physiques. Under normal circumstances it is only a matter of time to trust each other and share knowledge with close comrades unless there is a reason or a restriction such as legendary identities.

  • jordan lowe

    thank you and a question is Gao Yingjie the one who is the grandfather of the retainer knight and figured out he has a spirtual level of 97 so decided to become their team captain. or did he get assigned to be the captain by the grandfather of the retainer knight and ended up being the captin of long haochen team

    • Robin

      No, Gao Yingjie is not related to any member of the squad. He was simply tasked with the protection of the squad and especially LHC. Han Yu’s grandfather is the chief knight of the Knight Temple, Han Quian. And since he knows about LHC’s physique probably one of the people ordering ten mythril knights to protect him. I doubt that they will let him run unprotected in the future even though they will need to find another excuse if his protector doesn’t permanently stay in hiding. ^^

  • Tomas Senn

    I wonder what will happen when Haochen’s innate spiritual energy reaches 100

  • ZaX

    Why do I get the feeling 100 is no longer the max when if involves Hao Chen. Thanks for the chapter

    • Matthew Mather

      they’ve never said 100 is the max, its just insanely high.

    • Akherr

      I think 100 is the max for a single entity. I.e. 100%.. But after fusion with the fairies it could go over the 100 limit because it’s shared between two entities …

      I mentioned earlier that I think the samsara spirit stove was made by the same method as the saint spirit stove absorbing fairies. I’m hoping by the end of this that he has an army of fairies that have evolved into angels that can use all his abilities and fight beside him.

  • Christian Cohn

    So I wonder when do we get back to that old teacher guy. Is he going to hit the 9th step in a few years. lol

  • Avarrencus

    Bright Rays of Sunlight? lameeeeee… Demon God Slayers is much better

  • KenKen

    They both each gave their teammates a big shock lol >.<

  • Rhiannon Sturtevant

    I don’t entirely understand, why Bright Rays of Sunlight? I’m sure that it sounds cool in Chinese, and it does give off a more hopeful feeling than Demon God Slayers, but I got the feeling that there was some hidden meaning behind the name. The rest of the DHS seemed to immediately understand this meaning, and the author, despite constantly filling the chapters with piles and piles of excessive information, decided that the meaning behind the name Bright Rays of Sunlight was so obvious that it didn’t need to be explained.

    • Robin

      I guess it is meant as a sign of hope for the future. It isn’t explained, but I guess what they want to bring to the world is not death and slaughter but hope and a sunlit future instead. We all know that Haochen is idealistic and influenced by his identity as the Scion of Light. He surely wouldn’t want to define the existence of their team fixedly on murder.

  • thr

    Bright Rays of Sunlight. .. . sounds nothing short of awkwardly limp.
    “We are saved!” “Bright Rays of Sunlight have come!!”

    yeah.. .Isn’t Bright Light Bringer.. .well still awkward.. .how about Light Bringers??

  • SpeakForYourself

    Can ‘Bright Rays of Sunlight’ translation be changed to ‘Dawn of light’, it sounds much cooler in English, I’ve read the Chinese raw and ‘光之晨曦’ sounds so majestic and hopeful, it’ll be weird if the English translation can’t convey the majesty of the name.

    • Luca Aeturnum

      Honestly, I think Brilliant Dawn is the best.

    • Illuminati

      Now that might actually make some sense. The translator’s version gives it little to no meaning at all in comparison.

  • ViRuss

    I can only hope that everyone on the team gets to the point of scion of their own at this moment. We see Haochen get increases, it would just be so cool if they all became scion from achievements, like destruction of those demon artifacts and absorbing its power.

  • Illuminati

    “In this instant, everyone seemed to understand what Long Haochen meant by that, and couldn’t help but clench their own fists.”

    I don’t understand! Does it have some other meaning in it’s original form? Because to me it just sounds like an awful naming sense…
