Ascending the Heavens as an Evil God
Chapter 25: Immortal Demon World

Inside an ancient style room, a delicate and fine young man slowly opened his eyes.

What greeted his eyes was very different from the usual scenery, but his gaze remained calm and indifferent without the slightest surprise.

"Young Master Gu, are you awake?" Beside the young man, there was a girl dressed in a palace outfit standing by respectfully. When she saw the other party open his eyes, she hurriedly came forward and spoke.

"Do you know me?"

"Miss Tang told me to be your guide after you wake up."

This young man was, of course, the Gu Nan who had just reincarnated into the “Immortal Demon World." He stared at the girl for a moment and suddenly showed a strange smile before nodding gently.

"Then please first let me..."

"Get out."


"I said get out."


Right when the girl turned around, Gu Nan suddenly moved, slamming his palm towards the back of the girl’s head. Even though he’d just reincarnated, his palm strike still contained the strength of a peak Acquired Realm cultivator. If it hit, the girl’s brains would burst out.

But just when his palm strike was about to land, the young girl suddenly turned sideways and just happened to dodge the attack.

There was no more respect on her face; only a little curiosity remained. "How could you tell that I’m not one of your righteous path cultivators?"

Gu Nan shook his head. "I couldn’t tell."

"Yet you still struck to kill?" The girl’s eyes widened. She didn’t really understand her opponent’s thoughts.

"At worst, I’ll just have killed the wrong person. What's the big deal?" Gu Nan looked at her strangely.

The young girl was stunned when she heard his answer, then she immediately bursted out into a loud laughter, throwing her head back. "Gu Nan, right? Okay, I’ll remember you. You should have been reincarnated into our six demonic factions instead."

As her voice fell, the girl's figure quickly disappeared. After all, this was still the righteous path cultivators’ territory, and she didn't dare to stay.

Gu Nan was left alone in the small room. He shook his arm and felt the power rapidly recovering in his body. His mouth curled slightly.

"Tang Xuan... The way she handles matters really leaves much to be desired!" He pouted in displeasure and walked out the door. "Let's settle this body’s karma first."


In the Immortal Demon World, the righteous and demonic paths couldn’t coexist peacefully.

In Gu Nan's words, the main societal conflict here was the class conflict between the righteous path and the demonic path.

There were five righteous sects and six demonic factions that dominated the power of the whole world. The mission of Radiant Tower reincarnators like Gu Nan was to help the righteous path defeat the demonic path.

The demonic path cultivators also had external help, but they were from a different force and didn’t seem to be an organization of reincarnators.

This mission had been ongoing for several years, and both sides fought each other many times, but neither side managed to complete the mission. However, both sides gained a lot of benefits from it.

Because of this, demonic path cultivators were very aware of reincarnators’ weaknesses and knew that they were the weakest when they just woke up and would quickly grow stronger.

Tang Xuan was already busy with many other matters inside the mission, so she sent a subordinate to help Gu Nan, but demonic cultivators kidnapped her and replaced her with one of their own.

If it wasn’t for Gu Nan's calm temperament—okay, fine, his excessive paranoia and the way he regarded human life as dirt—he probably wouldn’t have been able to avoid the sneak attack.


「Main Mission: Eliminate the six demonic factions」

「Side Quest: Kill the six demonic factions’ 'Innate Realm and above' cultivators」

「Mission Reward: Medium」


Gu Nan walked on the streets of ancient times. His face looked calm and natural as he read the notices given by the Evil God Temple in his mind.

An intermediate reward showed that this was still a mid-sized mission, not a large one. However, the upper reward limit for intermediate missions was also very high, so at least Gu Nan wouldn’t lose out.

Gu Nan’s steps quickened. In a few minutes, he had already reached an official residence.

Above the main entrance of the residence, the words "Gu Residence" were written in impressive calligraphy.

Gu Nan’s body in this world was also surnamed Gu, although the name was slightly different. The original body’s owner was the abandoned son of Jiujiang Prefecture’s Gu family.

He was the illegitimate child of the Gu family patriarch, and grew up in the residence as the status of a young master. However, his actual situation wasn’t much better than that of a servant, since he was often beaten and cursed at.

His mother was also a servant. She accidentally became pregnant after the patriarch got drunk and ***, and her status was never elevated to a legitimate wife.

Three days ago, she was beaten to death by the servants of the Gu family mistress, and the original body’s owner was also driven out of the residence.

"This is the ‘trash young master strikes back’ protagonist template... Tang Xuan really took a lot of trouble to find this identity." Gu Nan recalled the history of this body and laughed unintentionally.

Of course it was no coincidence that Gu Nan reincarnated into this body. Tang Xuan specially chose this body for his identity.

In order to avoid being touched by karma, reincarnators often chose this kind of identity to facilitate settling the original body’s karma—the more miserable the initial situation, the better. They only needed to kill and kill some more.

"Gu Sheng, you actually dared to return?"

When the two guards at the gate of the Gu residence saw Gu Nan, they immediately sneered and walked over.

Gu Sheng was the name of the original body.

Gu Nan lightly shook his head. He didn't intend to say anything and was about to smash the guards’ heads with his fist, but the Evil God Temple issued a notice again.

「Evil Event: Take revenge on Jiujiang Prefecture’s Gu family. Can earn up to 8 Evil Value」

When he saw this line, Gu Nan’s eyes suddenly lit up.

Evil Value was always welcomed. He just accumulated 30 Evil Value. If he could reach 45 Evil Value and open another equipment page, his overall strength would level up.

The Evil Event that he hadn’t seen for a long time finally appeared, so Gu Nan stopped his attack.

He could earn up to 8 Evil Value from this mission, but if he wanted to earn the maximum number of Evil Value, it wasn’t enough to simply make a fuss.

"Where is Gu Weiran? Tell him to crawl out to meet me!" Gu Nan gave a cold Hmph as he stood at the gate to the Gu residence, prattling on self-importantly. Gu Weiran was this body’s father, the patriarch of the Gu family.

Hearing this, the guards’ expressions suddenly changed. "Gu Sheng, how dare you! Who gave you the courage to call the Patriarch by name?"

Gu Nan coldly swept a glance over the guard and slapped him in the face. The guard instantly flew out and smashed into a wall.

The guard beside him was stupefied. He pointed to Gu Nan, and his voice trembled slightly, "Gu Sheng, you dare to attack us? The Patriarch is a great Innate Realm master!"

"Innate? What I want to kill today are precisely Innate Realm cultivators!" Gu Nan curled his lips into a sneer.

The guard panicked once he realized that the Patriarch’s name had no effect. He stumbled and crawled as he ran into the residence to hurriedly inform the patriarch.

And Gu Nan just followed him, leisurely walking into the Gu residence with a faint smile tugging on the corners of his mouth.

At noon in broad daylight, people in the Gu residence were bustling about, creating a lively scene. Gu Nan was the only one just standing there silently, out of place with the surrounding atmosphere.

At the same time, not far from the entrance of the Gu residence, the figures of two young girls appeared, one tall and one short.

"Elder Sister Xin, is he the person you were in such a hurry to find?"

"En, that's him. I thought he‘d be in danger, but it seems that he’s already averted the disaster."

"I know that person!"
