Chapter Two Hundred and Forty Four – Consensus

In Little Mountain Jie, no one would pay attention to the flow of xiuzhe. What everyone was attentive to was the flow of ling grains. As for xiuzhe, who would care?

Wei Cheng Bin found the place according to the address on the jade scroll. His heart was slightly insecure. He should have first confirmed it. If this jade scroll was a joke that someone played on him, then it would be terrible.

This was the place.

Two life-like authoritative and ferocious stone lion-type auspicious beasts were standing by the two sides of the gate. He had some experience and knew these were mechanized golem beasts. They usually were motionless, but if one dared to attack then they would attack at the first possible moment. The black metal gate was tightly shut. The light of jinzhi occasionally flashed by. He was slightly reassured. Families that had this kind of house in Nan Sheng Village should have at least some power.

He put his palm on the copper bell diagram carved on the door and channeled ling power.


The bell sound was clear and ethereal. A moment later, the metal door slowly opened,

A brawny man with a face full of scruff examined him, his gaze as sharp as a knife. Wei Cheng Bin felt his body tighten. He might be in ningmai¸ but his combat abilities were very low. He had broken through to ningmai due to a moment of enlightenment after working with illusory formations. He nervously swallowed. The brutal aura exuded by the large man in front of him created fear in him.

“I … … I am Wei Cheng Bin … … two … … two days ago, I received a jade scroll, it said … …”




Hearing Wei Cheng Bin stammer on for a long time yet unable to clearly state his meaning, Lei Peng lost his patience and interrupted, “Okay! This is the place, you didn’t go to the wrong place.”

Finishing, he raised Wei Cheng Bin with one hand as though he was picking up a little chicken, and flew inside.

Wei Cheng Bin closed his eyes in fright, his entire body shaking. Lei Peng rolled his eyes inside. He didn’t know who had suggested that he should be the one to welcome this group of people. Every single one person in this group was as cowardly as mice, and shook whenever they saw him.

This compound was just one of Bao Yi’s secret properties. As cunning as a rabbit, he had backups upon backups. That was his usual conduct.

“Another one came.”

The ling power on Lei Peng’s hand spat slightly, and Wei Cheng Bin was stunned into unconsciousness. He carelessly threw him on the ground.

“En, there’s already eight in this batch. With him, we only need one more before we can send them off,” Xie Shan said with satisfaction. He had exceeded his mission this time. According to Bao Yi’s intelligence, they had found three xiuzhe skilled in building cities. Without an exception, none of the three were able to resist the temptation of two hundred catties of ling grains per month.

He couldn’t help but sigh. If they were anywhere outside of Little Mountain Jie, no matter where they went, they would be treated courteously. But in Little Mountain Jie where life was worth as much as grass, just two hundred catties of ling grains was enough to buy a xiuzhe’s life. As a xiuzhe, Xie Shan couldn’t not help but marvel.




Bao Yi was off to the side. He was rejoicing that he had made the right choice. Even though he had not seen the Boss yet, but he had been successively shocked by Boss’ strength. Up until now, more than sixty people had been sent away.

The people that had been delivered outside seemed to have disappeared into thin air.

There definitely were people who were cooperating with them outside of the city, and that number would not be small. This group of people really were daring to act so boldly under Clear Sky Sect’s nose. However, he felt very good secretly at being able to dig at Clear Sky Sect’ walls.

He really had his action of throwing in the lot beautiful!




He Xiang looked down at the leaders of the different factions, the feeling of accomplishment in his heart reaching the peak in an instant. Previously, when he met any of the people seated here, he would have to nod his head and bend his waist, but right now, he could clearly capture the fear they had of him in the deepest part of their eyes.

This feeling was really good!

He quickly pulled himself back. He was very clear what his mission was.

A warm and careful smile piled onto his face. His voice was very light like the clouds high up in the sky. “My thanks to everyone here for waiting so long, then we shall now begin.”




“Seventy people, it should be enough! How about it? Let’s stop?” Lei Peng said impatiently. They had been guarding here every day. That Clear Sky Sect was really trash. They hadn’t reacted in the slightest. In the beginning, he had thought that this time would be a big mission. Who knew that it was so boring and tasteless? He just wanted to return to camp now.

Xie Shan did not pay attention to him. He looked at the list and frowned. “Why did the remaining people not come?”

Hearing this, Bao Yi didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. “We used ling grains to attract them. In the end, it is like business, you and I have to both be willing. The remainder probably are living quite well now, and do not want to move.”

“Then we will just leave them?” Xie Shan was slightly discontent. He did not want to leave any regrets in the first mission he was leading.

Bao Yi spread his hands. “Then what? It’s not like we can kidnap them.”

“Kidnap them!” Xie Shan’s eyes lit up as he clapped in excitement. “This idea is great! How come I didn’t think of it?”

Hearing this, Lei Peng, who was at so much leisure that he felt restless, was also excited and furiously nodded. “Not bad, not bad! We’ll kidnap all of them! We won’t leave one behind!”

The other people snickered as they exchanged looks. Zong Ru helplessly raised his eyelids. His Samhadhi had been interrupted once again.

Bao Yi paled. “No way! No way! It is very lucky that our recent actions had not attracted Clear Sky Sect’s attention! If we go to kidnap people, we would certainly alarm Clear Sky Sect, then it would be great trouble!”

“We’re not afraid!” Lei Peng twisted his mouth and said scornfully.

Bao Yi hurriedly looked at the other people. When he saw the anticipatory expressions on their faces, he felt his vision darken. He thought of Zong Ru. In his mind, Zong Ru had always been calm and reliable. He definitely would not approve of this course of action.

But before he could look at Zong Ru — he heard Zong Ru say in a voice filled with helplessness, “Should we do it now? Let’s go, let’s finish so I can go back sooner to train my Samadhi.”

Bao Yi felt his head instantly sink into stillness.

All fifteen people agreed to the kidnapping. From the suggestions to passing the motion, it hadn’t taken more than a minute. To be able to plan such a large kidnapping under the mighty Clear Sky Sect’s eyes, it was enough to make everyone except Bao Yi feel their blood boil!

Only this way would they not have wasted their journey here!

Since they had decided, everyone quickly started to finalize the plan. After following Lil’ Miss for so long, they had started to learn how to make a plan, and the beginnings of being professional brutes.

Bao Yi’s face was pale as he listened from the side. He decided he would definitely stay far away from this group of madmen in the future! Especially Zong Ru. Only now did he know how wrong he had been. Zong Ru usually indifferent, but when he spoke, malicious and evil ideas were lightly thrown out.

With one word from one and another from the other, a simple and rough plan was quickly born.




When Wei Cheng Bin woke up, he found that he was on someone’s back. The sound of wind that occasionally sounded around him let him know that he was flying at high speed through the air. He did not dare to move. He knew the limits of his own abilities. Up until now, he did not make a sound. He slightly turned his head, and warily scanned the surroundings.

Not ten zhang away from him, there was a xiuzhe. He was also carrying a person on his back.

When he clearly saw the surroundings, he was greatly shocked. There were more than one hundred xiuzhe around him. Of those, only twenty of the xiuzhe were carrying people. The other xiuzhe had placed them at the very center.

Wei Cheng Bin finally thought of what had occurred before he had became unconscious.

Which faction did this group of people belong to? They really looked like a big faction! Even though he did not know his own future, but he was full of anticipation. It was very clear that this was an extremely well-thought out plan. More than one hundred xiuzhe were protecting and transporting the twenty of them, it could be seen how importantly they were being treated. The other side had spent such effort so what they aimed for definitely would not be small.

“Notice your rhythm. Control the output of ling power.”

“Preserve the flexibility of the ranks!”

“Combat units at the outermost layer, be on your guard!”

“Try to avoid the clouds.”

… …

He could hear endless shouts of scolding. What Wei Cheng Bin found wondrous was that the xiuzhe in the surroundings did not make a sound as they continuously adjusted their position.

For some unknown reason, the stern silence this group of xiuzhe maintained made Wei Cheng Bin to feel a different kind of power!

He couldn’t help but make a closer examination.

The troop that was in front of his eyes were different than any other troop he had seen before. More than one hundred people were flying, but the ranks were so organized it was as though they had been drawn out with a ruler. The elites that he had seen before had been more relaxed and spread out. In front of this group, they seemed more like a random group of soldiers.

He could occasionally see xiuzhe in groups of three or five moving far away. Those were probably sentries.

The more he saw, the greater his shock was. The power that this troop displayed surpassed the limits of his imagination.




Wei Ran’s mind was tightly alert. He was the division leader of the Second Division, but before this, he had never lead a group larger than thirty people. He was worried that he would not do a good job, and thus he was extremely attentive. He also worked hard at his cultivation.

This was the first mission he was undergoing as a division leader.

The mission that Gongsun Cha had given him was not difficult – move forward along a predetermined path, and transport the twenty people back to the camp. When he had first heard the mission, he had released a breath, but when he saw the path, his expression became unnatural.

This path drew out an extremely large curve. It was akin to having travelled in a circle before returning to the camp. He did not understand why Lil’ Miss would make such a complex, and roundabout path. What worried him the most was this path would take him  through the territories of multiple factions.

This meant that they could be attacked at any time.

However, when he saw the unnatural expressions of the other division leaders, he instantly understood. This was a mission, but it was also a test. Lil’ Miss was testing whether they had the abilities to be a division leader.

Up until now, they had not encountered any dangers.

However, they had encountered several xiuzhe yesterday that had skirted around them before leaving.

Wei Ran was experienced in battle and understood that people had locked onto his group.

On the entire way, he had constantly maintained the troop formations for combat.

Seeing the increasingly practiced display from the xiuzhe under him, he couldn’t help but sigh. As expected, true combat would temper a person. The improvement they had made in the last few days surpassed the improvement they had made in the previous month.

A blinding red light suddenly exploded in the sky in front of them.

Wei Ran’s pupils suddenly shrank. It had come!

That was the warning spell that their sentries had cast. He tried to compose himself, his mind furiously thinking back to what Lil’ Miss usually did.

He raised his right hand to copy the aloofness of Lil’ Miss, his voice coming out abnormally cold.

“Prepare for battle!”

Translator Ramblings: Ahh, Gongsun Cha’s insanity was awakened by Pu Yao and has spread to other people. Headhunting talented people, no problem. Kidnapping people under the eyes of a faction multiple times your size, that’s a great idea. Taking those people and then making a huge circle so everyone sees and attacks you, let’s do it!

I like how Bao Yi thought that Zong Ru was the sanest person of the bunch. Don’t be fooled by his appearance and his type of cultivation. The guy was crazy enough to get carved on by a guy who is just ningmai and the equivalent to a low-class worker in this world.

  1. Thanks for the chapter!
    He really had his action of throwing in the lot beautiful!
    Um…That line is a bit confusing. Is it a typo or just a badly phrased sentence?

      1. …That’s badly phrased as well. What’s the original chinese text? I don’t feel like reading the chinese for this little bit

      2. :X I don’t know what warlord and I were thinking on that one… we have failed you.

      3. Reading the raws, I think 投名状 is translated to application or initiation, as in his first assignment to join the group, like when Wang Lun agrees to let Lin Chong join Liangshan in the novel Water Margin, “王伦 道:既然如此,你若真心入伙,把一个”投名状”来。林冲便道:”小人颇识几字,乞纸笔来便写”。 朱贵 笑道:”教头你错了。但凡好汉们入伙,须要纳投名状,是教你下山去杀得一个人,将头献纳,他便无疑心,这个便谓之投名状。林冲道:这事也不难,林冲便下山去等,只怕没人过。” If that’s the case, “自己这次的投名状,可是做得很漂亮啊!” could be translated as “He had indeed performed his assignment beautifully this time!”

    1. OMG. I almost spit out the tea I had in my mouth then he said that kidnapping them was a great idea

      1. to be fair, it is a tremendously good idea in this case for once XD. Reminds me of Portal to wonderland where the sect he goes to had kidnaped him from another sect before he could join them.

      2. Ya but it was mostly cause I found it so funny.
        Bao Yi: “It’s not like we can kidnap them”
        Xie Shan: “That’s a Great Idea!”

        Don’t tell me you guys didn’t have a giggle here as well

    2. Original Chinese text from Raw: 自己这次的投名状,可是做得很漂亮啊!

      My guesslation?: He had really thrown his lot this time quite beautifully! (May be inaccurate)

      1. Wow this one is difficult.
        He felt that the lot he had thrown himself into was quite beautiful!
        But beautiful doesn’t seem to fit here (even though that is how it is described in Chinese) so I suggest
        He felt that the lot he had thrown himself into was quite wonderful!
        He felt that the group he had joined was wonderful!
        ….I need to go ask my parents for a better translation lol. Can I have a link to the raws please?

      2. The consensus of my family in China: They can’t make heads or tails of it…. welp

      3. Great now they’re giving me conflicting opinions. Some of them is saying that it’s complementing the group while some is saying that Bao Yi is saying he did not misjudge the group

  2. Chapter title is “Censensus” instead of “Consensus” in the title post.

    “He really had his action of throwing in the lot beautiful!”
    Seems unclear.

    Much thanks.

  3. Low class worker is over stating it a bit, don’t you think? I mean, in this area everyone is ningmai! I’m sure that’s going to change after they leave here, but right now he was just carved on by a relative stranger who’s work he’d never seen before! That’s all.

    1. Low-class worker in the grand scheme of the world. Has a skill in a certain area, but in a war, doesn’t even count as cannon fodder.

      1. Trash soldier does not equate to trash worker. A very skilled craftsmen is useless on the battle field. At the same token a elite soldier is may not be a good craftsmen. The whole jack of all trades master of none thing.
        Skill in one area properly applied can solve many difficulties. A hammer can solve everything but brakes everything as well a needle and rend beautifully and prepare something to be used elsewhere but it is not good for every battle.

      2. I do agree. I’ll move Zuo Mo up to the skilled workers level on the pyramid of society. So middle-class? People will want him in their companies (sects) and he will be paid greatly.

        Combat-wise, I speculate that he can rival Xie Shan one on one with the tricks he has.

      3. I have the same mind to keys problem too. Speech to text would be so useful for me though the names and terms would probably be screwed up.

  4. At first I had a different interpretation of the large detour, confuse Clear Sky Sect and/or others that they might be part of anyone of those factions to sow confusion/hide their tracks but instead it’s poking hornet nests to train the troops. Looking forward to the kidnapping operation xD

    1. Similar thing happens in Portal to Wonderland, basically kidnapping promising disciples from an enemy sect.

      1. but that was more like stealing. this is saving them and giving them better lives. under zuo mo. hahaha

  5. Haha, this chapter was great. It feels like Zuo Mo and Gongsun Cha are changing the world when the author shows the perspective of so many different people.

    Thanks for the translation!

  6. just realise something…
    zuo mo pets… for battle who will fill the slot…
    the worm is for ling finder…
    the bird is for transportation…
    the pagoda is for control tower…

    then who responsible for battle?
    i was thinking…
    if other stage 5 ling beast is big in size…

    what will stage 5 of butterflies will provide? i mean… are we looking at Mothra (google godzilla vs mothra)

    1. Isn’t it obvious? Silly Bird, Lil’Black, Lil’Pagoda… who else has a nick name that starts with Lil’? =O

  7. -He really had thrown his lot in with the (right faction) beautifully. ( the phrasing feels like it is missing information at least in English. where had he thrown his lot… with the right faction? Don’t know but it reads better.

  8. Hmm i wonder zuo Mo probably doesn’t Brand everyone with his consciousness anymore. But is being Brandes a disfiguration or a Status Symbol under these madman. I’d laugh if people were to beg zuo Mo to Brand them

  9. Thanks for the chapter!

    I like how the author introduces the new characters and shows the story through their eyes.

  10. Thanks for the chapter.
    I love how the characters seem more human in this novel. For example, Lei Peng lost his patience and interrupted, “Okay! This is the place, you didn’t go to the wrong place.”
    That’s a totally normal reaction similar to what you would expect from a bored government employee doing paper work again and again.

  11. Thanks for the chapter. Kidnapping isn’t done that way silly, kidnapping should be done secretly and the perpetrators should vanish immediately without a trace. Time for a battle.

  12. thanks for the chapter,
    it’s fun to see how everyone has their personalities expressed and twisted

  13. Disappointed in Bao Yi. Thought he was smart enough to realize that it’s the quiet ones that are the scariest. Like mask girl.

  14. It’s funny how the mindset of the characters slowly change.
    Moreover, those changes are flowing naturally along the story and not seem forced.
    The author did a good job in growing his characters.
    Thank you for the translations!

  15. Thank you for the chapter, so funny. I almost hope and think the author will let them screw up the kidnapping somehow, so he can make little miss blow a fuse and scold them severely. That´s always hilarious

  16. Translator rambling was great this day. Insanity is truly infectious. Like Aids.

  17. Xie shan’s group were not happy until they started to kidnap some people xD

Tell me something
