Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 295


Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 295: The Changes on the Tower of Eternity (I)

This time, the count of casualties in the Southern Mountain’s City was over ten thousand, but their manpower was in the end still ample. With the assistance from civilians, the city gradually recovered its splendour.

Of the forty Demon Hunt Squads that came, only a small number resided in the Priest Temple’s headquarters, whereas the others were accommodated in other residences. Of course, Long Haochen’s group resided in the Priest Temple.

On the first underground floor of the Priest Temple, Long Haochen gathered his comrades in his room.

The Priest Temple really treated them well, not only offering them rooms for resting, but also a small area for cultivating.

“Boss, why do we have to stay here cultivating?! We came here for the sake of a mission, didn’t we?” Sima Xian asked doubtfully. On the battlefield, he was the most straightforward to kill his way through the enemy lines. The first appearance of the Energetic Ball of Light had a stronger utility than he had even expected himself.

Originally, Sima Xian was left behind by the rest of the team in terms of strength. To say nothing of Long Haochen and Cai’er, he was still inferior compared to Wang Yuanyuan and Han Yu. But after changing his equipment, in this battle, Han Yu and Wang Yuanyuan combined didn’t kill as many demons as him. Everywhere the Energetic Ball of Light had passed, everything had been blown away. Now, he naturally wished to to keep displaying his talent on the battlefield.

Long Haochen replied, “We have a temporary truce with the demons. Additionally, with the end of the battle, our emergency War Mission naturally concluded. However, there’s something even more important that we’ll have to handle now.”

Immediately, he gave everyone the details regarding the Illusory Paradise as well as the negotiations between the Alliance and the demons.

“Spiritual stoves! So there’s actually such a great place, able to produce a great amount of spiritual stoves?!” While Sima Xian asked with a pleasantly surprised face, the others weren’t unperturbed from the news either.

This was about spiritual stoves!

For which reason could Long Haochen become the real core of his team, and defeat more powerful opponents? Other than his own strength, he had the help of two great spiritual stoves. And in fact, without Long Haochen’s and Cai’er’s four spiritual stoves, the strength of the 21st general grade Demon Hunt Squad as a whole would decrease by half. For whichever vocation, it would rather be strange to stay calm after hearing about spiritual stoves.

Lin Xin flung his long hair over his shoulder, happily claiming, “Boss, vice-captain and you should work hard! The best would be to come back with a few spiritual stoves. I won’t be picky; as long as one is compatible with fire element, I am satisfied.”

Chen Ying’er disdainfully snorted, “So shameless. Do you have no limits? Has-drug-bro, your drugs almost caused Captain’s death, but you still have the nerve to say that?”

Lin Xin responded with a snort, “I will accept whatever punishment the team decides on for the problems that accrue from my pills. But if you give me a fire elemental spiritual stove, my spiritual energy will be bound to grow in purity. When I then make pills, the effects will naturally be even greater. I was saying this out of consideration for the team.”

Sima Xian replied with a smile, “Save your bullshit, who wouldn’t be able to contribute even better to the team with a spiritual stove? Nonetheless, are these things so easy to acquire? You’re just dreaming. We should rather hope for Boss and Vice-captain to get one more spiritual stove for themselves.”

Seeing his comrades’ unconcealed thirst, Long Haochen exclaimed, “It’s not like you have no chance to obtain spiritual stoves yourselves.”

“What?” The eyes of the five of them opened wide, clearly revealing weird expressions.

Long Haochen continued, “For this visit of the Illusory Paradise, Cai’er and I have both obtained a secure place. When Grandfather Ling talked to us about the Illusory Paradise, he said that to enter it, one’s spiritual energy couldn’t exceed ten thousand. Otherwise, one will get rejected by the Illusory Shrine. This means that the other people who will enter the Illusory Shrine should all be at the sixth step of cultivation, and as close as possible to 10,000 units of spiritual energy. Personally, I believe that they will be picked from different Demon Hunt Squads. Since our team already got two places, the odds of getting more are low.”

“However, this is a chance that happens only once every century, so I hope that everyone will benefit from it. This is also the reason why I brought you here after requesting from grandteacher that we can stay behind closed-doors to raise everyone’s strength over this month. During this time, I want to try out whether my plan would possibly work. If it works, it may be possible for you to follow Cai’er and me inside the Illusory Paradise.”

Before saying this, Long Haochen had released a Holy Mantle, covering all his teammates inside while isolating the sound inside, “I have a simple plan, for this we will use the Tower of Eternity.”

Because everyone took a Holy Spirit Pill back in Holy City, their cultivation level had been rising at a fast pace since then. But before they got to enter the Tower of Eternity, they were forcibly enlisted for this War Mission. And now that they heard Long Haochen mention the Tower of Eternity once again, everyone immediately had flabbergasted expressions on their faces. All of their faces were filled with eagerness.

Wang Yuanyuan was the first to speak, “Captain, do you mean that at the time vice-captain and you will enter the Illusory Shrine, we should stay inside the Tower of Eternity, and that after entering the Illusory Paradise, we would come out?”

Long Haochen nodded, and said, “Exactly. This is why we should try out whether this is feasible. Grandfather Ling said that there was no limit to the number of people entering the Illusory Paradise, but only roughly twenty spiritual stoves would be produced, with only one per type. Letting too many people enter would cause a loss of balance, and would only boost the danger without increasing the odds of getting rewarded. And with the agreement done this time with the demons, both sides will send ten people to the shrine. That’s to say, if I bring you in, we will strive to take away the demons’ share, while trying our best not to get found out. The main problem that remains now is whether the Illusory Paradise and the Tower of Eternity are compatible.

First of all, you will remain inside the Tower of Eternity, and try out whether returning from the Tower will affect you. Next, we’ll have to know whether the Tower of Eternity can be used to transport you inside of the Illusory Paradise.

The third point will be whether the Illusory Paradise will reject the Tower of Eternity. We will solve the first problem through practical tests, but even if we settle this issue, we’ll still have no way to predict the next two issues. Thus, I cannot guarantee that you will be able to enter the Illusory Paradise.”

Sima Xian laughed out loud, “Boss, having a chance already makes us very satisfied. Even if at that time it doesn’t work, we’ll still be okay with it. Anyway, vice-captain’s and your strength rising means that we will become stronger as a whole.”

His speech was not just for flattery; in fact, without Long Haochen’s and Cai’er’s lead, how could their recently formed team possibly get so many contribution points, used for strengthening every single of their members? It appeared like Long Haochen gained a lot since the founding of their team, but how much did the others gain? Sima Xian and Chen Ying’er successfully broke through to the fifth step, and everyone was already at least at the fifth rank of the fifth step of cultivation. This pace of progress was enough to absolutely scare some people.

Also, there was still the Demon Hunt Mission Tower. Who said that with enough contribution points, there wouldn’t be something even better to buy than the Holy Spirit Pills? The more Long Haochen and Cai’er would grow in power, the more difficult would the missions they could take become, and this would consequently increase the amount of contribution points they would receive. Thus, Sima Xian’s words got the approval of everyone present.

Long Haochen said, “Then, let’s hurry to conduct our tests. Even if you cannot accompany Cai’er and me to enter the Illusory Paradise this time, the Tower of Eternity will still enable everyone to raise their strength, and maybe even to reach the sixth step earlier. This way, we’ll advance to the commander grade even faster. Make your preparations everyone, we will immediately enter the Tower of Eternity.”

“Wait.” Han Yu, who had been silent for some time, suddenly interrupted, “Boss, this is the headquarters of the Priest Temple. Won’t the deathly aura coming from it make us easily detectable?” Han Yu may originally have been very haughty, but he still possessed a very good common sense. His strength aside, he was also a very meticulous person. Still, his fortune had been to run into Long Haochen back then. His brilliance had always been kept hidden, until he became Long Haochen’s retainer knight, and started to always act out of consideration for him. This change had helped him correct himself.

Long Haochen shook his head, “At the time we were in Holy City, I already tested this. Because Elux is a Holy Necromancer, his main attribute is light, therefore, entering the Tower of Eternity will only produce faint light essence. I believe this was done on purpose when the tower was built. Now everyone, gather in a circle around me. After I summon the Tower of Eternity, no one is allowed to act blindly without thinking. You must listen to all my orders.”

Actually, Long Haochen was really nervous. After all, this was related to his comrades’ safety, thus at the time he said those last words, Long Haochen’s expression was particularly serious.

Han Yu and the other four nodded in succession, changing into their equipment before forming a circle around Long Haochen.

Long Haochen also put on his own armor, and readied the Holy Radiant Shield in his left hand, while his right hand was slung around Cai’er’s waist. Slowly, he closed his eyes.

A mild golden radiance emanated from his chest. It was the brilliance associated with Eternal Melody.

Over the last few days, regardless of whether it was during the time Long Haochen was unconscious or after he woke up, the Eternal Melody had always radiated a high temperature. By chance, Long Haochen was already used to it.

Regarding this necklace’s powers, he felt increasingly more convinced as time passed. That day, after he had seriously wounded the Moon Demon of the eighth step, he had heard the latter shout the words ‘divine artifact’. And in the instant before losing consciousness, he had also felt as if he was covered in a particular kind of spiritual energy, which was precisely what protected him.

Clearly, it came from the Tower of Eternity, or perhaps the Eternal Melody.

Was one of those really a divine artifact? But, the question remained, was it the Eternal Melody or the Tower of Eternity that turned out to be a divine artifact? Long Haochen felt that it should be the latter, because based on everything he saw in the Tower of Eternity, Long Haochen had no qualms calling it a divine artifact. Inside, far too many miraculous things were waiting to be discovered.

    thankyou toto… hahaha thankyou so much

  • Baem LN

    Thank you Toto and sponsors for the chapter!

  • Sarlisark

    I at least won the bet, on how they will try to get the team inside.
    Also if it works here we know who will escort Hao Yue in the darkness world the whole squad i would say

    • Luke Confidential

      I predicted this method for protecting Austin Griffon during evolution WAY back when the tower was introduced.

      • Robin

        Yeah, yeah, you both won the price. Play nicely, guys, will ya? 😛

        • Luke Confidential

          The only prize I need is the satisfaction of being right.

          Though I must admit I’m kind of getting bored of this feeling all the time 😉

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Try making some wrong predictions it will help sweeten the pot.

          • Luke Confidential

            I make outlandish predictions fairly frequently. They just usually pan out [in some way, not always precisely.]

          • killerwakka1

            if you make vague prediction they will be mostly correct. For example: after illusinary paradise Hao yue will evolve and LHC will have to fight an other strong foe

          • felix

            Hey hey spoilers! 😛 j/k

            I was under the impression just about everyone thought the tower teleportation would work? and that was way back when we were thinking how to get LHC’s buddy buddy squad to the dark world of the demons.

          • Robin

            Please refrain from announcing spoilers. First, they would probably get deleted and in the worst case the person spoiling banned, second, this is no spoiler.
            We have had many heated discussions about this topic. I was against an easy teleportation option, with which you can enter and leave the tower from everywhere. But this was the common opinion. And it seems that those opinion was right.

          • felix

            I did add an appropriate smilie and just kidding and at the end o_O didn’t think it would be cause for confusion.

            I’ll refrain from making the joke in the future.

          • Robin

            Please do so. I meant no offense but we had some spoiler issues some time ago and it simply takes the fun out of it.

      • Sarlisark

        i was talking only about our illusory paradise, and yes I got the idea for Illusory form your idea for griffin

  • Dawnyaaa

    Yay! Chapter! I want more cuddle time ! <3
    Haochen, Haochen when are you gonna get that kiss that you said you would take if you were to come back alive from the battlefield.

  • Luke Confidential

    Hahaha, so it IS just like the Time Forgotten Forge from Xui Wu Dao. [Except it allows more mid-range participants rather than only noobs and low level serious practitioners like the TFF]

    Though… it’s kind of amazing that one old dude BOTH got to participate in it twice and still broke through the 9th step given the ISE cap.

    Methinks the previous time it randomly wound up being significantly shorter together. Once late in the century and once early.

  • carlo arcenal

    I find LHC’s decision to sneak his teammates in stupid, Endangering their lives. It was emphasized that the place is extremely dangerous. Only 10 humans are allowed to enter, If others would really not get picked, sneaking them in is a blatant and direct opposition against the alliance, it is okay if they would not be found out and survive, but for LHC to make that decision, he seems to become greedy for power. HE IS EFFING TRYING TO SNEAK HIS MATES IN THAT EXTREMELY DANGEROUS PLACE AND POSSIBLY AGAINST THE DIRECTIVES OF THE ALLIANCE. WTH AUTHOR, YOU CAN DO BETTER.

    • Luke Confidential

      For what it’s worth though, they could just as easily kill off the demons sent in and have a multitude of Spiritual Stoves for themselves.

      Don’t tell me it’s not distinctly possible the demons were sending a balanced cooperative unit with intentions of killing off the competition.

      • Baem LN

        Black Ops Demon Elites Unit. I like that. And it will be greater if Yue Ye leading that unit. Free spiritual stove for 21st GGDHS! Grab the popcorn then.

    • Robin

      Well, Haochen is not really one to follow the rules or wishes of the Alliance by the letter. He didn’t heed the warnings of his elders to stay away from danger, he not only risked a lot during their last mission but also took the liberty to openly protest against the order of the Alliance, and, oh right, he is also practicing the forbidden art of necromancy. Did you really expect him to grasp this opportunity and simply leave his comrades in arms out of the picture?

      • Jonathan Hurd

        Okay if my memory serves right I’m pretty sure you called this use of the Tower, though the original idea was he would use it to get his comrades to help him with Hao Yue’s evolution, this is still pretty cool too. So good job Robin, :D.

        Gotta say I love this cheat. LHC already said hes doing this to cheat the demons. He also explained that the reason they limit the people they send in is to avoid unnecessary fights among those who go in. Since there are 20 stoves sending more than 20 people in means that a lot of them are going to have to come back empty handed or start fights inside over the things. If it was just humans going in I would bet money LHC would not go with this plan. He is doing it because the ones he cheats are demons instead. I can’t imagine that the Alliance can complain if LHC is sticking it to demons especially considering the Alliance doesn’t imagine the Demons are going to be very successful anyways.

        • Luke Confidential

          I could be mistaken, but I seem to recall it was my idea and then we all discussed its feasibility.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Your probably right my memory is pretty fuzzy. I just remember Robin being adamantly against the idea of using the Tower as an escape mechanism. There was definitely at least two other people in that discussion as well.

            Still gotta love how much of a cheat that tower has turned out to be and we haven’t even seen him use it for its original purpose of training yet.

          • Luke Confidential

            He’s a Protagonist of the author Tang, immense cheats are to be expected.

          • Robin

            Yes, I was against the idea. And I still find it too easy a way to cheat your way out of a situation. As interesting as the principle is, this ‘beam-me-up-Scotty’ takes a lot of fun out of some probable situations.

          • Luke Confidential

            Honestly I find it an entertaining cheat. It makes the BROS the absolute MASTERS of infiltration missions.

          • Robin

            Yeah, that may be, but…

          • Cookie crazy

            You ever read Stellar Transformations? No? Well then you truly don’t realise how much of a cheat it is -_-
            Stellar Transformations is a perfect example of what you are disliking.

  • agila0212

    Thank you for the chapter 🙂

  • kirindas

    Thanks for the new chapter!

  • ArtemisHunter

    To all the people hoping for the Moon Demon of the eight step. Bad Luck. HaHaHa

    • Luke Confidential

      You could say they got…

      … boned.

      [Skeletons ahoy!]

    • Jonathan Hurd

      Part of me is sad that we’re not seeing the Moon Demon again, but part of me is now happier because this level cap greatly raises the chance of them sending Moon Waifu. I mean out of all people 6th step and below she is probably the most trusted and this is a great opportunity for her. I think there is a very high chance she gets in and meets LHC.

      • Luke Confidential

        Her friend the heir of the Demon Dragons may also be in on this.

        • Jonathan Hurd

          Yue Ye’s friend keeps confusing me. They stated that Demon Dragons are really picky and will only have kids with other Demon Dragons to keep the blood line pure. They also said that the weakest ones are around 7th step. So I keep wondering how she could be only 5th step and be a demon dragon….

          I guess she potentially took something to suppress her power so she could join Yue Ye on the trip since the requirement was being 5th step or below. That would be kind of fun seeing her pop up again, but sadly she got her memories changed so she won’t recognize LHC.

          • Luke Confidential

            What I’m thinking is that my use of the word ‘heir’ there was incredibly loose.

            Demon Dragons are incredibly picky who they’ll intentionally breed with, but that doesn’t mean a maverick might not go around raping [or just enjoying human slaves in a less vile way, similar to the DGE] human women and- upon accidentally producing a half-breed from his limited sperm viability- go ahead and raise her as his own rather than forsake his opportunity to raise children at all.

  • AnarchyDev

    Wow… He’s trying to cheat his way into the Paradise…

    Thanks for the chapter translation.

  • AnarchyDev

    Wow… He’s trying to cheat his way into the Paradise…

    Thanks for the chapter translation.

    • Jonathan Hurd

      I have to admit I did not see that one coming. Good job LHC you crafty bastard!

      • Evilage

        doesnt that take away one of the things of the knight thingy?

        • killerwakka1

          he is only harming the demons so I think it does not violate the knight codex. And you know if you do it right you can bend any rule to your liking^^

        • Jonathan Hurd

          I gotta check the list again but I guess if looked at it from right direction it is in the way of Honesty…. On the other hand as long as no one asks or finds out not like hes directly lying…

          • Evilage

            Now thats like saying cheating can only be considered cheating only if you get busted

  • lordcattank

    thank you very much for the chapter

    Thank you~

  • Luke Confidential

    Apologies to the regulars I frequently banter with [and the regular stalkers who enjoy reading our convos but seldom participate] but I’m going to be pulling out of daily participation here.

    Too much shit to get done and too much loss of focus by watching and waiting for updates and participating in the conversation regarding them.

    I’ll still be reading weekly and perhaps put forth a few words then, but I won’t be the daily comenter that I have been.

    Keep up the awesome work Toto, this project’s been a huge part of my life since I started reading just before the DHS selection arc. Thanks for everything you do man.

    • Robin

      Really understandable, but sad nevertheless. Read you when the goddess of time means better with you again. 😉

      Sad, but good luck with all that shit, i hope that you can find time in the future cause its really fun having useless arguements with you all

    • Jonathan Hurd

      No worries. Your insights and opinions are always welcome, but life comes first and foremost. Take it at your own pace and enjoy, :D.

  • Evilage

    Am i the only one who wants toto to join in on the discussions? Cause it sometimes feels weird(in a weird way), atleast i hope i can see your views on the released chapters

    • Robin

      Well, translating takes a lot of time and he still has a life. Imagine how much time it would consume if he participated in our little banters and theory time. Also, it is hard to participate if you already know more than the others and have to watch your words. But it would be fun, yes. ^.^

      • felix

        Pretty much the spoiler issue. Its the same when there’s a show and you read the manga/novel or even just a manga and the novel is ahead.

      • Jonathan Hurd

        If I understand correctly I think he is also a full time student at this time too. So while I would also enjoy any input he feels like adding. You gotta do whatcha gotta do, :D. Keep up the good work Toto!

        • Evilage

          I didnt mean he has to do it
          i just meant that it would be fun if he did
          well if he doesnt have much time i can understand

    • junjoy

      the spoiler issue is his way of doing it.
      not every is like ren of wuxiaworld. :p

  • Psyside

    What step was demon waifu? was she 7 6 or 8?

    • ArtemisHunter

      fifth step

      • Psyside

        So she may enter it

        • Stark

          Lol what? Why would she enter? And this is not a harem story.

  • Evilage

    what are the chances of haochen getting a stove that includes necromancy?
    something like 1000 skeleton stove which helps reduce the cost of summoning the skeletons?

    • Jonathan Hurd

      To be fair Yating can cast any spells LHC knows… So if LHC can create skeletons that means she could too….
