Chapter Four Hundred – Draft Notice

Zuo Mo was downcast at the thought that his ling power was a constraint, but he was not demotivated by this. Instead it had roused his fighting spirit. Didn’t have any other ways? What he first thought of was the five element glass bead inside his body.

This five element glass bead was of extraordinary origins and greatly increased his affinity towards the five elements. When he had been at Wu Kong Mountain, he had benefited greatly from this.

At present, the five element glass bead was not one of Zuo Mo’s top talismans, but it was closely connected to Zuo Mo’s origins and had a special importance.

Zuo Mo had always been preoccupied and was unable to study it. At this time, Zuo Mo thought of it.

The five element glass bead had merged into Zuo Mo’s blood and flesh so he could only inspect it with his consciousness. However, when his consciousness inspected the five element glass bead, it was blocked by a gentle power.

Zuo Mo stilled. He recalled that Pu Yao had said to him that something was sealed inside the five element glass bead. A cautious expression came onto his face. This ling power was not strong, but it was very pure. The sealer should be a xiuzhe above jindan.

Surprised by his finding, Zuo Mo didn’t think much about it. In these two short years, he had encountered many battles and had almost died a few times. His life philosophies had also changed. Like his stance regarding his changed appearance and his origins, he still cared greatly and would endeavor to discover the truth, but he would not be as impulsive as he had been in the past.

Facing the threat of war, living in an unpredictable environment where he could perish at a moment’s notice, surviving was more important than anything else. Having personally experienced the cruelties of war, he knew just how small and insignificant a person’s life was. They were like a sapling in the middle of the storm. It took all of his strength to struggle and search for that thread of life.

After being baptised in battle, his heart was much stronger, and his self-control was stronger as well.

Pu Yao had also said clearly told him that he could not break the seal on the five element glass bead with his low cultivation. So Zuo Mo was not astonished about his failure.

His consciousness wrapped around the five element glass bead. Zuo Mo tried to find the smallest weakness in the seal, but this thin layer of ling power showed him that difference between cultivation stages was not so easy to overcome.

He shook his head, withdrew his consciousness from the five element glass bead. His hopes of using the five element glass bead was bankrupt.

Then what methods were there?

While Zuo Mo’s mind dwelled on the topic, a light flashed through his mind. He thought of another method, yao arts.

Could he use yao arts to forge? Yao arts could also control fire. Of all yao arts, five element yao arts were something every yao knew a little of because they were powerful and easy to learn. Zuo Mo’s fire yao art skill was not his best, but it wasn’t bad.

However, the fire of fire yao arts and the fire of forging had fundamental differences. Formations needed a medium in order to be engraved onto talismans, and flames could act as the medium. Fire yao arts might have powerful fires, but they could not be used in this manner.

Why so?

Zuo Mo sank into thought.

If things were different, Zuo Mo would not waste time on such a ridiculous problem, but there was no way around it. Even if it was ridiculous, he still had to do it.

As he thought, Zuo Mo’s right hand unconsciously cast a fire yao art. The simplest fire yao art of little yao arts, [Fire]. A weak flame wavered on the tip of his finger. Zuo Mo was extremely familiar with little yao arts. His mind did not need to move, and the wisp of flame twisted and danced around his finger like a snake of fire.

He closely felt every detail of the wisp. The snake of fire was very nimble and spirited.

Deep in thought, Zuo Mo completely did not realize the flow of time.

Draft notice!

Heavy Earth Corps had sent a draft notice!

Nan Yue looked at the draft notice in her hand. Her heart suddenly sank. The draft notice was compulsory. The tense wording requested the draftee to report to Heavy Earth Corps before a deadline. The one being drafted was not Nan Yue. She did show potential, but her strength was not enough that she qualified for a draft.

The draft notice was for Daren!

Nan Yue quickly understood. They could not find Daren’s location, but it was not hard to find her origins. Her mood instantly became dour. She had followed Daren for a while and generally grasped Daren’s temper.

Daren definitely would ignore this draft notice. At that time, conflict would be unavoidable.

Which person was scheming against Daren from the shadows?

She turned and looked at the clansmen that were working hard on their cultivation.

Her gaze was full of worry, but then her determination rose up.

She quickly entered the Wasteland Beast Chessboard. No matter what, she had to let Daren know as soon as possible!

Daren would definitely have a solution!

She was filled with confidence.




The black fire wrapped around a Golden Armor Guard. The Golden Armor Guard stood motionlessly like a wooden puppet. Pu Yao’s hands were like two blooming flowers. Yao arts rained down and entered the bodies of the Golden Armor Guards.

“Pity, the materials are a bit lacking,” Wei said with slight pity.

Due to the combination of Pu Yao’s skilled techniques  and the the large amounts of black fiendish energy the Golden Armored Guards absorbed from this vicious and fiendish ground,  they had the conditions to level up. The only thing Wei felt pity about was that these Golden Armor Guards had all been xiuzhe that cultivated the sword before death. The door-sized swords they held were frightening to see, but if it was a mo with a strong body, the power would have been several levels higher.

“Let’s just work with what we have,” Pu Yao said lazily. “Compared to the past, these days are already much better.”

“En.” Wei nodded and agreed with Pu Yao’s words.

This vicious ground to Zuo Mo and the others was undoubtedly a poor one. However, for Pu Yao and Wei, it was much better than Wu Kong Mountain. At the very least, they no longer needed to constantly worry about that withered old man suddenly coming with his sword to exterminate yaomo.

“Your student seems to have encountered trouble,” Wei reminded Pu Yao.

“I can’t help him,” Pu Yao said unconcernedly. His hands did not stop. “Do you understand that the methods of xiuzhe forging?”

Wei shook his head. “Mo cultivate their bodies and cannot forging.”

“It’s not that you cannot understand, but there is no need to understand.” Pu Yao was clearly  opposed to the xiuzhe methods. “Yao cultivate the spirit, mo their bodies, why do they need to forge? If he wants to work on forging, he can only rely on himself.”

Wei was silent for a moment before he suddenly said, “Why not let him cultivate yao arts and mo skills at the same time?”

“If you don’t want all of us to end up dead, it’s best if you do not have such a dangerous idea,” Pu Yao said warningly, “If he dies, you and I cannot escape either. Hmph, it already makes me feel unsafe that he cultivated a mo physique. Who made it so that your mo physique cultivation is so dangerous. I don’t want to die so soon.”

Mo physique cultivation is not as dangerous as you think … …”

Pu Yao impatiently interrupted Wei. “If there are safer ways, then why risk it? Do you  have a problem with your head? If you want to find a successor, other than him, you can pick anyone. Guard Camp has so many people, just pick one. Shu Long isn’t bad, how about it? Have you considered it?”

Wei shook his head. “His talent is not enough.”

“Wake up!” Pu Yao was full of disdain. “Look at our state, you are still holding on to those traditions. It’s already good if you can find a successor, yet you’re still so picky!”

Pu Yao ranted on disdainfully, but his hand movements did not slow at all. When the last few lights entered the bodies of the Golden Armor Guards, he finally showed slight satisfaction.

The Golden Armor Guards were completely transformed. The scaled golden armor that had covered their bodies had disappeared, a complete suit of heavy black armor replaced it. The heavy armor was fitted so well it seemed like one object. They were like metal monsters. The terrifying presence that emanated from their bodies made people fearful.

Black spikes protruded from their shoulders, elbows, knees and other important places. The tip of each black spike was a strange blood-like red. At the crown of their helmets was a rhombus shaped golden mark that resembled the blood rhombus on Pu Yao’s forehead.

Pu Yao rubbed his chin and scanned the new Golden Armor Guards. He said to himself, “These trashy swords are no longer suitable. Oh, that broken sword in Wei Sheng’s hands isn’t bad, I wonder where he got it … …”

A moment later, he shook his head, and muttered, “Never mind. First we will work on this, let’s think about weapons in the future.”

Suddenly, Pu Yao raised his head and his eyes flashed.

At the same time, Wei also raised his head.




Lei Peng and Nian Lu’s faces were pale white.

After Daren had announced the fiend soul beast hunting mission, everyone was very enthusiastic. Other than engraving new formations, a piece of gossip was secretly passed on—the totem fragments were materials that had ling kernels! Supposedly Daren had already tasked the Golden Crow Camp with studying the forging talismans out of the totem fragments.

Those with foresight instantly detected the opportunity. Their past experiences told them if Daren gave something to Golden Crow Camp, it probably was in preparation to give to everyone.

No matter if it was the new formations, or the new talismans that hadn’t been forged yet, they all needed to be traded for by points. If they didn’t take this opportunity to earn points, were they dumb?

Lei Peng and Nian Lu were stronger than the average Vermillion Bird Camp members but they were still weaker than Ma Fan and the others. The two of them decided to pair up to hunt fiend soul beasts.

They worked very well together and were efficient producing great results. The past combat experiences had not been wasted. The strength of Vermillion Bird Camp had clearly increased. Many people did not even need to use the sword formation to comprehend sword essence. Of course, part of this was Wei Sheng’s work.

Lei Peng and Nian Lu’s improvement was especially evident. The fiend soul beasts they were afraid of in the past gradually became less dangerous for them.

Without detecting it, they had travelled a long way from the campsite.

Everything had been proceeding smoothly. Their luck was unusually good. They had encountered many more fiend soul beasts than usual. The outstanding result caused the two to start fantasizing about their wonderful future lives, with engraved new formations and using their new talismans.

Until they encountered this terrifying fiend soul beast!

  1. that draft notice will probably do a lot of good when he’s nowhere near the frontlines heh

  2. Thanks for the new chapter! I doubt it, but it will be really funny for Zuo Mo to use ‘I’m a xiuzhe. I can’t participate in a yao army.’ as his excuse for the draft notice. Lol!

    1. If he did that though, then the yao government would probably decide he was a spy and send some truly powerful people to capture him.

      1. like inbetweenaction said, most will probably see this as him trying to dodge the draft stupidly, (though even zuo mo isn’t stupid enough to do that….right?) anyways if they did find out he was a enemy (well not actual enemy, but from same nation as enemy) they prob have so really powerful people capable of capturing the conciousness in the wasteland board.

    2. “hahaha…”

      “Well, my greatest strength is probably my mo based fighting style. or my yao arts. Or formations based on said yao arts. really, i’m pretty got at anything but Ling cultivation… but for real, i’m xiuzhe. “

    3. Well, either way this is so ironic 😂
      Draft notice a xiuzhe to fight other xiuzhe?
      Even if the xiuzhe is not so skill in ling scripture…
      And cultivate mo physique..
      And have some accomplishments in yao arts….

      Wait, is this guy really a xiu? 🤣 ahahah
      Maybe he’s secretly a love child of these three tribes, that’s why he can cultivate them all lol

  3. So, draft notice for ZM? Like ZM will waste his time to fight for them.. And thinks he cannot go anywhere except the prison, and the battlefield, right? Thank you for the chapter

  4. Field Boss appear! The loots must be great.

    Drafted lol. A human drafted by yaomo.

  5. Wei shook his head. “Mo cultivate their bodies and cannot forging.”
    I’d imagine that’d be forge instead of forging or are incapable of forging or some other form.

    Looking forward on how he deals with the draft notice. It’ll be amusing no doubt. 😀

    Thanks for the chapter!

  6. Lol got drafted. Remind me of the mc in seoul station necromencer that build his own guild to run from being drafted. He even considered killing kim jong un just for north and south to stop fighting.

  7. Well, he could always tell them a version of the truth. He just needs to say that he has no idea what jie he’s in or how to leave it and the prison is his only connection to the outside world. I’m sure they have some sort of lie detection yao arts that they can use to determine that he’s telling the truth.

    And here I thought that their wanton slaughter would eventually be noticed and bring bigger fish to them. I wonder if those two will drag it back to the camp to be taken out by the whole army?

    1. his prior promise of payment for any information about the battlefield is evidence in his favor… not that ge is likely to explain, he has better things to do

  8. understand that the methods of xiuzhe forging -> understand the methods of xiuzhe forging
    and cannot forging -> and cannot forge
    Thanks for the chapter!
    You think you can hire Ge? Ge costs a lot of jingshi!

  9. Meatbun Delivery~
    Thank you for the chapter ( ●w●)

    Poor Nan Yue.. she’s going to freak out when she hears that her Daren won’t comply to the draft notice..

  10. Be funny if his response is “Hey, draft notice? No problem. Hey, but, bro, I need a lift getting out of a deca-millennium battlefield of fucking hell so I can show up and fight so how about you just come do me a fucking favor?

  11. I kind of wonder why no one is going finally he brings the next level of cultivation…. above jindian. It would be interesting to see how the author describes it.

    1. Yuanying has been mentioned way earlier, and we are yet to meet someone at that level, so what is there to discuss?

  12. I like how there’s always progression in this book.
    On many others chinese web novel there would be lots of filler and trash talk instead of progression.
    Thank you for the chapter!

  13. Thanks for the chapter WYHCWE, WanderingGummiofDoom, and Brian! Can’t wait to see how Zuo Mo handles the draft.

    1. Really, thank you. I started reading this when you were at about 100 chapters, because someone recommended it as not being a story about just the protagonist, with all other characters being either enemies or onlookers. This is now my favourite story, out of the many I read on various site. It is a joy to me to wake up every day to a fresh chapter, usually one that goes in directions I never predicted, so thanks 🙂

  14. Mwahahahahaha!
    I am King Soul Fiend Beast! I shall eat you puny readers!
    Dear Friends, many thanks to the Author, Translator(s), (Editors), (Donors) for the awesome chapter! With lots of love, Jack

  15. I dont get why ZM would not learn mo arts, he dosent need to listen to Pu, its not up to Pu to decied what ZM can and cant train. Pu is getting annoying since he is pretty much doing the same as ZM old trash sect elders.

Tell me something
