Ascending the Heavens as an Evil God
Chapter 38: Traes Of The Gods, Past And Present Life

“In that case, let’s die together!”

Yan Fei’s berserk roar echoed through the top floor, and the blood runes on the ground suddenly lit up, emitting bursts of amazing power.

Qin Xuanji’s expression changed slightly, and she suddenly pulled Gu Nan away. “We have to leave now! He’s going to self-detonate the blood runes!”

“Purely Tier 2 explosive power.” Gu Nan, however, smiled lightly and shook his head. He grabbed Qin Xuanji’s collar and threw her out the window.


Qin Xuanji flew up and smashed the only window on the top floor. Her figure appeared in mid-air, and she could only watch the violent explosion destroy the ancient castle.

Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!

Yan Fei was truly ruthless enough. The blood runes, the result of his years of operation, connected to each other and self-detonated. A terrifying shockwave nearly lifted off the roof of the ancient castle.

Qin Xuanji, who was in mid-air, was also hit by the shockwave and flew out dozens of meters away, landing heavily on the ground.

Of course this sort of impact was nothing for a warrior at her level, so she got up immediately and fixed her gaze upon the smoke-filled top floor of the castle.

When the spoke dispersed, Qin Xuanji saw an unbelievable scene.

“He’s actually fine… And……”

Gu Nan stood on the top floor without any protective measures. His clothes had already been blown to pieces, and even his fair abdomen, which wasn’t particularly muscular, was revealed.

But he didn’t have any injuries at all. Not even his hair style was messed up. Step by step, he began to walk towards Yan Fei who was not that far away.

“Why……” Yan Fei had already taken cover before the explosion, but he was still badly injured. He couldn’t help but ask when he saw how Gu Nan was uninjured.

“Without the blood runes, you can no longer use Blood Sacrifice, right?” Gu Nan walked up to him and answered his question with another question.

“Yes… Wait a minute, how can you know about Blood Sacrifice?” Yan Fei’s eyes widened. This surprised him even more than seeing Gu Nan uninjured.

The blood divine art he learned was precisely called “Blood Sacrifice.” This kind of secret art was secret knowledge handed down from the God of Blood. ‘Even Qin Xuanji only has some general knowledge, so how can this person know so much about Blood Sacrifice?’

“How can I know…” A trace of helplessness flashed across Gu Nan’s face. He muttered to himself, “How can I possibly not know the skills of a Tier 2 monster like the Apostle of Blood?”

Without giving Yan Fei another chance to talk, Gu Nan ended him directly with an arrow, and a notice from the Evil God Temple finally came.


「Dungeon’s main mission has been completed:

「Accumulated points: 30

Accumulated Evil Value: 3」


The point rewards were pitiful, but the Evil Value wasn’t bad. After all, this was merely a small dungeon, so Gu Nan expected that.

Although the mission was complete, Gu Nan didn’t feel any happiness in his heart as the information verified by Yan Fei was too unexpected.

In his previous life’s game, the Evil God that players roleplayed had to fight the gods. This was considered the only “main storyline” in the game.

Evil Gods weren’t actually gods. Be it the gods affiliated with light or with darkness, both factions were the enemies of Evil Gods. Thus, Gu Nan had killed many of the God of Blood’s apostles in his past life.

But he never would’ve thought that the God of Blood would also exist in this world.

According to his probing just now, even the apostle’s skills were exactly what he remembered… ‘Is there any connection between this world and my past life’s game?’

But there were absolutely no martial artists in the game, not to mention those messy cultivators.

“Is Yan Fei dead?” Qin Xuanji had already reached his side some time ago. She looked at Yan Fei’s body on the ground and asked.

“Yeah.” Gu Nan nodded, his thoughts still on the Apostle of Blood. He casually explained, “Apostles of Blood prepare blood runes in advance and sacrifice the runes to escape death. Without any runes, of course he’s truly dead.”

Qin Xuanji couldn’t help looking at him strangely. “Do you… know a lot about the God of Blood?”

Gu Nan came back to his senses and stared at Qin Xuanji as if she was a huge treasure. “Tell me everything you know about the gods!”


When the two souls returned to Radiant Tower, only a little under an hour had passed in Star Realm. The smaller the plane, the greater the speed at which time flowed in relative to larger planes.

Everything that was needed to be communicated had already been done inside Langya World, so Gu Nan turned and left without another word.

‘Gods… They’re indeed very similar to the ones in the game. However, are they concentrated in some of the large worlds?’

According to Qin Xuanji, gods did exist, but they rarely appeared in Star Realm. Instead, they were on the other side of the universe and were concentrated in certain worlds.

Although there were worshippers of those gods in Star Realm and several large worlds nearby, they were all very weak, and their faith might not be too resolute either.

Yan Fei, for example, made it clear that he wanted to strengthen himself by using the God of Blood and just might betray his faith one day.

The appearance of traces of the gods suddenly strengthened the sense of urgency in Gu Nan’s heart. His natural enemies still existed. Furthermore, this wasn’t a game. The gods wouldn’t sit in their homes waiting for him to come around knocking.

According to the game, gods couldn’t see through Evil Gods’ identities, but in this reality, who could say for sure?

Gu Nan didn’t want to joke around with his little life.

‘I have to hurry up……’ Gu Nan sat in his room, his eyes flickering, and began to think about his next plan of action.

If it was before, when he wasn’t in a hurry, he could still happily complete missions in Radiant Tower to earn points and Evil Value.

As for what would happen to Gu Nian if she failed to settle her karma regarding him… What did Gu Nian’s life or death have to do with him?

But now, since he needed to level up as soon as possible, it was necessary to leave Radiant Tower soon and become a solo reincarnator. It just so happens that he can look for Gu Nian and get a legitimate identity to use as a cover.

Solo reincarnators required many materials and the assistance of equipment, so a legitimate surface identity was a must.

Qin Xuanji was right about one thing. Since he was a fated one, the longer he stayed in Radiant Tower, the greater the danger.

It wasn’t hard to leave Radiant Tower. As long as he didn’t catch the attention of anyone on top, he could leave normally by completing missions.

With Gu Nan’s skills, the next time Radiant Tower issued missions, he could reach the required number in the shortest possible time and leave the organization.

‘If I don’t have any matters in Immortal Demon World, I should stop visiting for the time being.’

There were a large number of reincarnators in Immortal Demon World, as well as Prodigious Realm experts. It would be too easy to expose himself there.

Although there might be other side quests and a main mission with rich rewards there, this wasn’t what Gu Nan needed right now.

On the contrary, the current progression of Gu Nan’s strength was already excessive. If he entered the Prodigious Realm without any warning, then it would be too eye-catching.

Even if he had enough Evil Value to advance to Tier 3, he would still choose to not advance for the time being, so he might as well make plans after leaving Radiant Tower.

In any case, he held Immortal Demon World’s coordinates, so he could still enter the world again even after leaving Radiant Tower. It’s just that he would no longer receive any assistance from Radiant Tower.
