Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 341

Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 341: It’s different? Your thigh… (III)

On the demons’ side, the ten chosen candidates were young powerhouses of great lineage, whereas from the Temple Alliance ten promising Demon Hunters, including the Scion of Light and the Saint Daughter of Samsara, had participated. Therefore, both sides were nervous beyond compare.

As soon as they saw a figure emerge from that dark green shrine, Ling Xiao and Huang Shuo couldn’t help but stand up, and swiftly rushed to the lakeside. Both parties’ powerhouses were in a state of mutual hostility, and in case any change occurred, a battle could very possibly break out any moment.

Long Haochen was walking in the front, and seeing him, Han Qian felt a great load fall off from his mind. Unconsciously he gave a look to the Temple Knight who calmly watched Long Haochen, making good preparations in case of the demons’ possible attacks.

Behind Long Haochen followed Cai’er, and then came Zhang Fangfang. Ying Suifeng and Ling Xiao relaxed at the same time. No matter what one could say, the most important thing was that the Scion of Light and the Saint Daughter of Samsara returned safely. And looking at them, they undoubtedly didn’t come back empty-handed.

However, Ling Xiao’s expression rapidly grew unsightly, because they were the only three to come back from the Illusory Paradise.

As for the captain of the Black Dragons’ imperial guard Huang Shuo, his expressions grew all the more unsightly. The fact that the humans were the first to come out was no good news to him.

Rapidly, Long Hoachen’s group of three returned to the side of the Temple Alliance.

“The others didn’t come out yet?” Ling Xiao asked Long Haochen.

Long Haochen let out a sigh, lowering his head. His expression already told a lot to Ling Xiao.

Ling Xiao’s face immediately looked ashened. These had been Demon Hunters from commander-grade Demon Hunt Squads! Their loss implied that seven Demon Hunt Squads were in danger of breaking apart, and the blame for this would be for the Priest Temple to bear.

Long Haochen coldly looked at the demons, saying in a severe tone, “The ten demons that came this time had all suppressed their cultivation, and none of them were powerhouses below the eighth step. Their external spiritual energy reached 20,000 units for each of them. Under these circumstances, we were basically no opponents.”

“What?” Ling Xiao lost his voice in surprise. On the other side, Han Qian pulled Long Haochen’s sleeve, signalising him not to say anything further. Without a doubt, the blame that the Priest Temple would shoulder this time was enormous, because they were the ones to initiate this collaboration with the demons.

Long Haochen turned his head to look at Han Qian, nodding to his ancestor and showing his understanding.

Ling Xiao’s aura became visibly unsteady. The human powerhouses from the side of the Temple Alliance all started to turn hostile, and were ready to attack at any time.

However, Huang Shuo’s side didn’t shudder in fear. As the captain of the Devil Dragons, he reached the conclusion that they surpassed the human group as a whole, and that these opponents were nothing to fear. However, Huang Shuo still did his utmost to suppress the killing intent filling him, because he had clearly sensed over these days that a formidable presence was concealed among the enemies. It’s terrifying threat even shocked him. It seemed to him that as long as they acted against the other party, a risk of suffering destructive damage would befall them.

In fact, Huang Shuo wasn’t an ordinary powerhouse of the ninth step. His strength already reached the peak of the second rank of the ninth step, his total spiritual energy reaching close to 300,000 units. Even for the demons, this level was attained only by a few powerhouses. He acted as the representative of the Demon God Emperor and yet perceived the enemy as a threat, so this hidden powerhouse had to reach a terrifying level of strength. With him here, in case a battle broke out, the damage their demon group would sustain would certainly be considerable. They were after all in the human territory.

Long Haochen shouted aloud, “However, the demons also paid a considerable price this time. Although they were all powerhouses that came this time, among them were several successors of demon gods. Their group was led by the successor of the Demon God Emperor, Ah’Bao. Still, they didn’t pay a low price either.”

Saying that, with a flick of his hand, he revealed a black flame in his hand.

This flame clearly didn’t emit the holy properties related to Long Haochen, and everyone saw the shape of crystal crown appear in his hand. This was exactly the Crown of Heritage from that Fiend of Blue Flames named Shen Shang.

Seeing this magical crystal, the powerhouses from the Temple Alliance couldn’t help but cry out in surprise. This confirmed Long Haochen’s prior words without a doubt.

On the other side, Huang Shuo’s look became all the more ugly. Of course, he recognized the owner of this magical crystal. Although the owner of that crystal wasn’t the most powerful demon that participated this time, he was still at least among the top five in overall strength. No matter what, he had no idea how this crystal could have fallen into Long Haochen’s hands. Seeing his appearance, he didn’t reach twenty years in age. Humans and demons were not the same, and he could tell his rough age at a mere glance.

Indifferently, Long Haochen produced a brilliant flicker of light, as his eyes were filled with an ice-cold look. The stare he gave Huang Shuo didn’t give off a weak impression.

“At least, three human survivors left the Illusory Paradise this time. As for you…” Reaching this point, he deliberately paused his words.

Even if Huang Shuo was calm, he still couldn’t help but be in great turmoil at that time. Looking at the distant Illusory Shrine, he immediately became pale.

In fact, this time only demons acting as successors of the top four demon gods had participated. It was for the sake of obtaining some spiritual stoves while obeying a secret order of the Demon God Emperor that they came. If these successors had all died in the Illusory Paradise, the blow inflicted to the demons would be incomparable. It would possibly even shake the foundation of the demons.

Since Long Haochen took out one Crown of Heritage, who said that he wouldn’t have other Crowns of Heritage? Hearing his tone, Huang Shuo’s group was not optimistic about the situation of their team in the Illusory Paradise.

“Speak, what happened to them?” Huang Shuo reacted in fury, while his threatening aura abruptly rose. The terrifying oppressive power almost instantly reached its peak, and even in the entrance to a living heaven filled with vital energy like Illusory Paradise, the whole area was filled with darkness instantly.

Ling Xiao answered with a cold snort and his hands flashed golden. From the milky white staff in his hand, a gentle golden brilliance spread to the surroundings, easily blocking the rich breath of darkness, and affecting their whole side with a drizzling light splendor.

Understanding Long Haochen’s intention, he didn’t utter a single word, and gave him room to handle the matter. The powerhouses from the Temple Alliance also drew their weapons successively, preparing to enter battle mode at any time.

The pressure spread by Huang Shuo didn’t affect Long Haochen in any way. Instead, he exposed an indifferent smile on his face, “Why should I tell you anything?”

Huang Shuo gave him a cold look, “If something has happened to them, we will inevitably tread on the Southern Mountain’s City and spare no cost to kill all humans up to the last man.” This sentence was said categorically and without any hesitation from his side.

He didn’t know so much about the other clans, but he had a particular understanding on the Devil Dragon lineage.

At the present time, the Demon God Emperor of the Devil Dragon Clan had only two children, Ah’Bao and Leng Xiao, and both had entered the Illusory Paradise this time. In his opinion, given Ah’Bao’s strength, he wouldn’t possibly have encountered any trouble in the Illusory Paradise, no matter the circumstances. The reason those three humans were still alive could only be out of his leniency. They were bound to return with great gains from this trip. This was the important reason why the demons were willing to pay such a great price for the chance to enter the Illusory Paradise.

However, he absolutely didn’t expect this twist. It could indeed be seen that the casualties on the human side were disastrous, since only three of the ten that had entered returned alive. And judging from Cai’er’s appearance, she was surely in a very weak state. But more importantly, none of the demons from their group had yet returned alive!

The greatest disadvantage of the demons during this operation was their lack of understanding regarding the Illusory Paradise. All the understanding they had was issued from the Demon God Emperor’s deductions as well as the predictions from the Star Demon God. No matter what could be said, at least Ah’Bao, and Leng Xiao hadn’t come back yet, and there was still the daughter of the Moon Demon God to consider.

The Moon Demon God’s side was still better off, since this time, it could be said that Yue Ye got a place only because of her relationship with Ah’Bao. But none of the Devil Dragons could be afforded to be lost! Although the Demon God Emperor was still young in age, his reproducing ability had reached the state where he couldn’t possibly have other children. Under these circumstances, if Leng Xiao or Ah’Bao were to have died in battle inside the Illusory Paradise, this would be a devastating catastrophe to the Devil Dragon Clan.

Since time immemorial, the Devil Dragons were led by the successive generations of Demon God Emperors, inheriting the pure lineage of the Devil Dragon bloodline. Never before had a Demon God Emperor of another bloodline been chosen, and atop of that, Ah’Bao had already gained a definite prestige within the Devil Dragon Clan. It reached the point that if they had died in battle, the Demon God Emperor was bound to be totally furious and could only take out his anger on him and his group.

For this reason, Huang Shuo’s eyes looked red. He appeared calm but was only filled with ideas of cruelty and slaughter. He was already prepared to blow these opponents to kingdom come, and would rather die here than return and bear the fury of the Demon God Emperor.

Indifferently giving a vague expression, Long Haochen revealed a cold look from the bottom of his eye, “It’s not impossible for you to learn about their whereabouts. And I can even tell you that they were not all killed in battle, and that some are still alive. However, just why should I tell you anything?”

Long Haochen said that in a very calm manner, and his face didn’t show any superfluous expression. Hearing him say this, Han Qian and Ling Xiao both couldn’t help but smile.

This kid was indeed just too intelligent. They obviously could tell that if Huang Shuo was made overly anxious and start a fight, the demons would admittedly face huge losses, but would the humans really be able to weather the conflict unscathed? In fact, this was not the recently embattled Southern Mountain’s City, which formed a natural fortress. And this time, the overwhelming majority of the demons that came were powerhouses of the ninth step. Even if they had just crossed the threshold to the ninth step and didn’t have any weapon on them, they were still the Black Dragon Guard!

    Thank you for the chapter totobro and thank you sponsor Christian B

  • Ragnarok

    Thanks for the chap! This arc is almost over huh.

  • Ragnarok

    I have a question I would like to put out there. Who do you think the mysterious powerful presence that the demon guard leader is feeling belongs to? I need to go back a few chaps to check and make sure but I’m not sure it belongs to the ones who came to guard Haochen. I have my suspicions.

    • Robin

      It could be his father, but so far we can’t be sure of that. There was a heated discussion about this topic when he first appeared. But the author has not given us a definite clue yet.

      • Majk

        I really don’t think that it would be his father. Mostly because other people from the human side recognised him by looks which would imply that he is not wearing any cover on his face or using illusion magic. I would say that it is a holder of one of the thrones definitely but probably one that is not focused on destruction like LHC’s dads but one that would be able to protect the Scion of Light and the Saint daughter of Samsara from harm should anything happen.

        • Robin

          It was said that he is wearing a helmet and hides among the other knights wearing armor. Therefore, he could be his father in disguise. At least we know that he is of high standing from the way Han Quian speaks to him.
          We also know that only a few divine thrones have owners at the moment. I think it were three of them. We already met Haochen’s father and the leader of the Alliance, and we alsso know that his father is the youngest one. If the mysterious knight is not his father, he should be a lot older. I think this is where the theories of him being Haochen’s grandpa are coming from.
          I am also not completely convinced that it really is his father, but as far as we now, considering his tremenduous strength, there are not that many options.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Mainly I’m guessing his father or his grandfather because of the close connection he seems to have with LHC. Also from what has been seen with humans thus far it seems like Innate Talent is passed through generations. So it would make sense to me if Xingyu’s dad is also potentially a powerful knight.

            The mystery knight is currently wearing a full Silver Foundation Armor so he is definitely a Knight and he has the power to match up against someone on the level of the top ten demon gods… Somebody with that kind of power seems highly likely to be wielding a Divine Throne.

            At a certain point in the story we were told there are three Thrones out there and as Robin said we have met two users. The chances of the head of the alliance sneaking out is slim to none. So the options to the Knights identity seem to be the last Divine Throne user and LHC’s dad in my estimation. I lean towards Xingyu because of the concern for LHC, but I do see a possibility where the third divine throne user is LHC’s grandpa.

            There is the potential that this is just a stupidly powerful knight and he doesn’t have a Divine Throne because he fucked up like the Demon God Slayers Knight. There is also the possibility that the mystery knight is the Demon God Slayer’s Knight, but that one I find pretty unlikely since he is most likely needed by his team to act if the DGE acts. The only stupidly strong knight with no current responsibilities that we know of right now is Xingyu so that would be why I think most of us are betting on him.

          • Evilage

            Hmmm isnt there a possibility that LHC’s grandpa is dead or something? He was never mentioned in the novel as far as i remember
            I remember being told that LHC’s dead comes from a noble family which may imply that xingyu’s side is a powerful knight family, but the author hasn’t even given any hints to which whether or not his grandpa is alive

          • Robin

            We know nothing about his family on his father’s side. His grandparents could be dead, but as long as we don’t know this as a fact, the author could let them pop up at any convenient moment.

          • Evilage

            Having them pop up when LHC is in danger would be really fun, and his grandma is gonna cuddle him to death and give him food and make him fat

          • Robin

            That would be amazing and absolutely hilarious!
            But they should at least be really curious about him. I start to hope that they are alive. 😉

          • Ragnarok

            Lot of answers before I got back. Yeah I wasn’t gonna voice a name but I was thinking along the lines that TJSS has used this sort of powerful supporter from the shadows thing in another work. Anybody who reads DD would know what I mean. That’s why I think that’s who is being sensed. Who else could scare the crap out of a Ninth Step 3rd rank Devil Dragon guard? Not saying that he is necessarily one of the knights in the formation either. He could just be chillin in the forest keeping an eye on things and emitting his presence to the demons to keep them in line.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            I kind of want to see his grandma be like Xinger’s all crotchety and no nonsense. Kick the crap out of demons or humans, whoever speaks back gets a whooping.

    • Jonathan Hurd

      Mostly what we can tell is he is a Knight, pretty powerful to be able to threaten the leader of the black dragons, and also has some sort of connection to LHC. So my bet is either LHC’s Dad or potentially LHC’s grandpa. That would be rather interesting, imo.

  • leopold1983

    LHC is a fast leaner 🙂 will he also get some dragon c ointment ?

  • kirindas

    Thanks for the new chapter!

  • Argos Yesu

    Ling Xiao? Are there 2 Ling Xiaos? I may have missed an earlier note or something. One Ling Xiao is the Priest there. The other Ling Xiao is the brother of Ah’Bao?

    • Ragnarok

      It’s Leng Xiao. Ah’Bao’s sister

      • Robin

        My mistake, Ah’Bao’s sister is called Leng Xiao, sorry. ^^°

        • Evilage

          Ling xiao was the woman with the moon lrincess right?
          I should re-read this whole arc after my exams

          • Robin

            Nope, Ling Xiao is the priest from the Priest Temple, Sima Xian’s new teacher.

            Leng Xiao is the sister of Ah’Bao and daughter of the Demon God Emperor. She is indeed the girl we met during the Moon Merchant Group incident, when she accompanied Yue Ye.

            At some places the priest was accidentally called Leng and I used the “search and exchange” function without noticing that the girl’s name was thereby changed wrongly. Toto will correct it in some hours.

          • Argos Yesu

            KK. Just messed with my head a bit.

            I actually thought that maybe the Priest was the traitor child of the Demon God Emperor… that would have been an AWESOME twist/addition to Demon and Temple politics…

          • Jonathan Hurd

            While that would be hilarious I think this is just one of those times of similar names sometimes being confused. To be fair I don’t think they can ever get worse than Lin Xin and Li Xin. Though to be fair I have also been in classes with multiple students called Jonathan before…. So who am I to talk.

          • Evilage

            Same with me, even thou in my country my name is a bit rare than usual i still see people with the same name, this also includes woman(its weird)

  • agila0212

    Thank you for the chapter 🙂

  • Evilage

    Selling information, good
    Thanks for the chapter toto christian B

  • Anto Wibowo

    Will dad come out ..
    Thank you for the chapter!

  • Jonathan Hurd

    I love when LHC goes ruthless mode. Milk those demons for all they’re worth LHC!

    • leopold1983

      Like lingxiao, wonder what he’ll dare ask. Will he get some dragonic ointment of sort?

      • Jonathan Hurd

        Really want to know what that Ointment is for. I swear to god if its used as a beauty product…. Someone is going to need to slap that Ling Xiao a few times….

        • Luke Confidential

          It wouldn’t surprise me if it permanently enhances the External Spiritual Energy of a human [or physically inferior demon]

          • Jonathan Hurd

            That would make sense. I wonder if Ling Xiao will share the profit after what LHC has managed to wrangle out of the demons, mwhahahahahaha.

    • Kaarme

      Yeah, it’s a funny situation. The demons would learn everything necessary if they simply turned around and returned home, but instead they are ignorantly standing here about to get ripped off by Haochen.

  • sirmathmansir

    Thanks for the chapter. FYI, in the last paragraph, you used the wrong ‘weather’.

    • Robin

      Yep, autocorrect can be a pain, thanks for noticing.

  • Zeth

    Thank you Toobro and Christian!!

  • Biggy35

    I am confused. All the demons were heirs of the first 4 demon gods, but some looked like the other demon gods like the Bear and Lion and Scorpion looking thing. Also, does anyone know how big the demon hoard that came with their 10 candidates were? I thoughts it was just a small group (5-10) with the 10 going into the Paradise.

    • Luke Confidential

      Not all Demon Clans mate exclusively within their own clan like the Devil Dragons. Some of these heirs may have been hybrids between clans.

      • Robin

        I think the group of demons acompanying the ten candidates is larger. At least there are several, I think there were 8, Devil Dragons, who carried several other demons from different clans.
        I was a little confused about this as well. Let’s see if we can get a clear picture. In the group we had:
        – Ah’Bao – successor to the DGE
        – Leng Xiao – his sister, should also be the second successor of the DGE
        – Yue Ye – daughter of the Moon Demon God, possible successor (we don’t know if she is the official successor but i doubt it since it was said that she only got her place due to her relationship with Ah’Bao)
        – A Blue Flame Fiend Lord – successor of the Fiend Clan
        – 2 Star Demons – 1st and 2nd successors of the Star Demon Clan
        – A lion
        – a bear

        Makes 8. I am missing 2 demons but I can’t remember which races they belonged to. It seems there are not only sole successors in the group, but it is possible that all ten belong to the top four demon clans.

        • Marko Bandur

          I dnt know who u count as 2nd star clan successor, but u r missing the 2dragon guards (both kneeled down to the fake DGE, one died and the other one was saved by Ah’Bao but was heavily injured) and the red magician we saw in the last battle

          • Robin

            I have added the 2 dragon guards. And yeah, I thought the red guy had also been from the Star Demon Clan since they are orange. But you are probably right:

            – 1 Star Demon
            – 1 red demon

          • Marko Bandur

            Yeah, she may is a successor of the star clan for real, we just dnt know this detail xD

          • Robin

            I think to remember that before they entered, when Haochen and Ah’Bao had their first contact, there were two star demons in the group. But i am too lazy to look it up. Too many sponsored chaps for such a bonus work. 😛

          • Jonathan Hurd

            I do wonder what clan the two Dragon guards came from. We have a pretty decent idea of the first 4 demon clans characteristics. They could be from one of the remaining 6 clans. Though I would think probably not the 8th Anan’s since they said he doesn’t really have a tribe.

            Considering that we were told the Devil Dragon clan was made by corrupting Black Dragons. Those guys could maybe be like a branch family. Similarly they also come from corrupted dragons but from different less powerful ones. Potentially they made this group because of how low Devil Dragon reproduction is.

        • Biggy35

          O.K. I looked back at chapter 311, and it said “Long Haochen counted them …..On their backs they carried dozens of other demons.” It also said there 3 Black dragons. So I am thinking there are between 50-100 high ranking demon powerhouses there.

          As for the bit about the 10 powerhouses all being from the top 4 demon clans. I am wondering if that was a mistranslation. Instead of saying only, they meant to say even successors from the top 4 demon gods fought.

      • leopold1983

        So the crown heritage that the star demon dropped is still missing. Either the author forgot about it and it’s wasted either the demons got it with them or Lin xin is hiding it.

  • Captain Facts

    Four demons died, right? Or was it three dead and one severely injured?

    • Marko Bandur

      Fiend killed, star sacrificed, lion and a dragon guard killed, bear and the other dragon guard heavily injured, so 4death, 2heavily injured, the 4left are Ah’bao, yue ye, leng xiao and the red magician demon

  • dreamer

    Thanks toto and sponsors for the daily releases.

    So, judging from the title and content of the preview, there are 2 fate for the demon group which is 10 of them will die in the upcoming battle or Huang Shuo will give them 10 devil dragon crystal.

    Is this a way of the author to pay LHC for not getting any spiritual stove + for the loss of equipment (BRHL broken)?
    LHC said that crown heritage from the fiend is going to LinXin staff so it is possible that he himself will get some dragon crystal to create a new equipment.

    • Jonathan Hurd

      To be fair I’m not sure there are 10 black dragons here to be killed or that the fight could go that smoothly if it does break out.

      The other thing to remember is what Lin Xin said about those Crowns of Heritage is that they work for everyone except Light attribute users. If a Light element user tried integrating with it there would be a massive back lash since the elements conflict. So I wonder if LHC will actually be able to use something like a Black Dragon Crystal to enhance his gear. If he can though it would be pretty sweet for him to get a new armor set considering I’m pretty sure his last one is in shambles… again.

      I kind of feel pity for the Black Smiths. LHC gets the armor and goes into first battle…. ruins it. They repair it goes into next battle…. ruins it.

      • dreamer

        seems like this new armor is too life threatening. I mean, the other armor last few fight before breaking but this new armor attract bad luck in the form of strong enemy that almost killed him twice. Hahaha… JK… Without it they won’t even make it to the 2nd fight

  • Evilage

    Am i the only one who wants ah’bao to die? This will cause the DGE to find his other successor(who is most probably LHC), then they will talk and go all starwars(maybe?) And the DGE will say this to LHC “i’m you father luke(oops LHC)”

  • Baem LN

    They obviously could tell that if Huang Shuo was made overly anxious
    and start a fight, the demons would admittedly face huge losses, but
    would the humans really be able to whether the conflict unscathed?

    Is it just me or is this sentence lacking something? Is whether the best word that can be used there?

    • Evilage

      Since the demons are currently in human territory even if it the border it would be easier for the humans to call reinforcement, so both sides would suffer large losses

      Yes that sentence does feel weird
      Maybe it can be written like this(please fix this if i made any mistakes)

      They could obviously tell that if Huang Shuo was made overly anxious, a fight would break out which would cause the demons cause demons huge losses, however would humans leave the battle unscathed ?
      (Please note i’m not too good in english as its my second language(i’m average) so please dont blame me for any mistakes in that sentence)

  • RedDragonX

    Thanks for the chapter!

  • Illuminati

    “This was exactly the Crown of Heritage from that Fiend of Blue Flames named Shen Shang.”
    This is already at least the third time you change his name… Shen Pian, Shen Can, Shen Shang? wtf? make your mind…

  • Cherokee

    “At the present time, the Demon God Emperor of the Devil Dragon Clan had only two children” Well that might squash my theory of LHC being DGE’s grandson. Might. “At the present time” This implies either he only has two children or he believes he only has two right now. The phrasing is kind of weird. My theory may still stand (and I hope it not only stands, but turns out to be true because that would be awesome).
