Tales of Demons and Gods (Sequel)


The formless ancient world was infested with despicable demons. They hunted and feasted on mankind, keeping the human civilization constantly in a weak and suppressed state.

During the first known year, a magical mountain descended into the world from the realm of the Gods. Carved on this enormous mountain was a message: ‘Heaven Prevails’…

After the Grand Descent, a name that was given to the descending of the mountain, the Three Great Sages made their ways to Mystic Mountain where they learned to harvest what we now call magic, establishing the Mystic Cults and eighty-one sacred shrines to help aid mankind with the cult’s mystic powers against the eternal fight to the death with demons.

Cult of the Sacred Runes Chapter 222 – Muse “Six howls? So what? When my name got on the list for the first time, the dragon howled eight times, just one less than Chi Wuxiu and he is the strongest on the list!” Qing Mu was annoyed by howling sound, he grinned disrespectfully while staring at Ye Wei, ‘you are good, but not good enough for me to care.’ The Spiritualist always admired Qing Yao, but the attention had never been mutual. He was therefore relieved to know Ye Wei earned less howls than he did, in hopes that Qing Yao

Cult of the Sacred Runes Chapter 221 – The Dragon’s Howl Two elderly men were staring into an ancient mirror inside a secret hideout at palace. The mirror  showed images of every corner their Qi could reach and even transmitted the quietest sound within the coverage. “This boy is a monster! The palace is finally going to be more interesting place after all these years of peace!” “He will stir up a storm. It’s about time for the top ten ranks to change up a bit, it has been the same for how long? Five years?” the elder’s green eyes glinted.

Cult of the Sacred Runes Chapter 220 – Not So Special Not many cultivators had seen the Shadow Destroyer Strike, and nobody under five-star returned prime level had managed to counter it. The initiates were under the impression that Ye Wei would manage to be listed after the first exchange, but now they were just worried for their fellow cultivator’s safety after seeing and feeling Jin Kui’s amplification stance and spear. “I am sorry. Qing Mu said I have to round this up.” Jin Kui was completely focused; his gaze was neutral but he meant harm. “He said three blows, but

Chapter 219 – Amplification Without the energy spikes, the densely packed runes and Qi became fragile. The runic tablet shattered at Ye Wei’s touch. “Your name is on the black dragon list, so please tell me this not your best.” Ye Wei slowly walked out of the cloud of dust and narrowed his eyes at Jin Kui, slightly disappointed. He could feel how the Supreme blood in his body was beginning to boil, improving the Eternal Star stance’s effect. “How did you do it?” Jin Kui was surprised by the sight of Ye Wei coming out unscathed after confronting the

Chapter 218 – Grave Purging Strike Jin Kui shook his body, the layers of clouds he stood on suddenly split apart. Witnessed by veterans and black dragon listers, he dove and flew down like a meteorite, approaching Ye Wei at fearsome speed. “Bang!” With a loud but muffled rumble, Jin Kui steadily landed in the ring. The whole square shook and the fissures in the green stone foundation cracked wider and longer. A gust of glittering green dust filled the whole square instantly. The initiates were all in awe, stunned by the display of incredible strength and balance. Their fear

Chapter 217 – A Gathering of Stars “What made you so giggly?” Qing Yao looked at Xue Er, slowly placing her brush down on the table. Her movements were gentle and coherent, somehow pleasant to watch. “So, all the newbies have arrived, and as you know, they are gathered to be taught a lesson about modesty!” Xue Er chuckled, pausing to look at Qing Yau’s graceful posture. “It is quite interesting when you are not an initiate isn’t it?” Qing Yao shook her head reluctantly, unable to understand the childish enthusiasm. “But we do it every year, haven’t you watched

Chapter 216 – Black Dragon Valley The hand seals immediately stimulated Zhou Kuang’s body, and thousand surges of gold-tinted Qi rushed out and filled the sky. The thick streams of Qi further condensed into the shape of a gigantic finger. Almost a mile in length, it had a jade-like and translucent glow. The menacing structure looked large enough to poke a hole in the sky, and millions of runes flowed throughout the whole length in an organized but complex pattern, giving off the semblance of a fingerprint. “Although Lone Finger Blast is incomplete, it is certainly powerful enough to kill

Chapter 215 – Precursor “You? You think you deserve to fight a lister? It amuses me how shamelessly ignorant one can be!”  Zhou Kuang said coldly as he disdainfully glared at Ye Wei. It seemed to Zhou Kuang that not only was Ye Wei not interested in contending with him, but that Ye Wei had somehow learn his failure to enter the list despite three years of best efforts. The more he engrossed himself in his own thoughts, the more twisted his face became.. “That’s a no? May I ask how I can fight one of them?” Ye Wei had

Chapter 214 – Next Ye Wei remained calm the whole time, unmoved by the pressing energy surges and undaunted in the midst of screams and tremors. His eyes were focused on the tilting sword array, registering its every slightest sway. He took a ghost step to the side as the array fell onto him, pulling his fist back quickly while his nose was close enough to smell the layer of evaporating ice on the swords. With a quick springing action, he threw a heavy punch. There was no trace of Qi around the fist, but his skin, bones, and muscles

Chapter 213 – Ice Sword Print At two-star returned prime cultivation, Luo Han was the strongest among the group apart from the leaders, Bai Qing and Zhou Kuang. He had been training in one of the lesser secret realms, Frozen Moon realm. There, he encountered the opportunity of his lifetime; he accidentally absorbed the essence of an Ancestral Frozen Moon crystal and a fearsome chill had entered his meridians since, making the quality of his Qi better than most other two-star returned prime Warriors. Luo Han only got in the palace a year ago, the then-condensed prime Warrior broke through
