Book 01: Tengen Puzzle

[TL Note: Tengen refers to the center point on a Go board. It is normally marked with a dot. The Chinese word for this is Tianyuan, which means origin of heaven, or the center. Here is a link to what a Go board looks like: The nine dots you can see in the picture are known as star points, and the center one is tengen. The others are not named and are referred to by their grid reference, like 4,4.]

Book 01 Chapter 001: The Strongest Strategist

On the sixth day of the sixth month, Fallen Dragon Cliff, the Chen Nation:

Gray clouds covered the sky, and a chilly wind swept through the land. Thousands of wounded soldiers camped at Fallen Dragon Cliff, appearing like a defeated army. Many soldiers guarded a large yellow tent in the center.

Officials filled this large tent, looking worriedly at a throne at the north of the tent.

An old man dressed in imperial robes sat on the throne. This person looked about sixty-odd, had a pale complexion, and was coughing continuously. Servants carefully attended to him, occasionally wiping off the blood that he coughed out.

A white-clad man who looked to be about forty stood beside the throne. This person placed his hands on the back of the old man in imperial robes, apparently transfusing Veritable Energy into the old man to treat the old man’s injuries.


The old man in imperial robes spat out a mouthful of blood. The treatment ended, but his condition did not improve. Instead, his face paled even more.

“Imperial Father!” a middle-aged man wearing official robes, the leader of the group of officials, cried out in startlement.

“Your Majesty!” the group of officials immediately exclaimed in fear.

The old man in imperial robes ignored the officials. Instead, he looked at the white-clad man who transfused Veritable Energy into him.

“Third Granduncle, you can stop trying to save me. I know my condition. My heart vessels have ruptured; I was too careless,” the old man in imperial robes sighed bitterly.

The white-clad man sighed, “Your heart vessels ruptured. Chen Taiji, you were too greedy for accomplishments, making a premature advance! Why did you not wait for me?”

Novel Notes

Hi everyone! How are you all doing? Anyway, I'm here to ask for some help today. I recently discovered another grammar checker tool called prowritingaid and am switching over from Grammarly Premium to that cause it's been pretty buggy on my google docs. Anyway, apparently, Prowritingaid has a referral program that can help me save costs. If I can get ten people to sign up for FREE accounts and edit using it for a bit, they will give me a free one-year premium license, and if I get twenty people, that's a lifetime license. I do plan to pay for the premium (likely lifetime), but I wanna try and save costs at this moment, esp since the income coming from translating is not good at the moment, and I'm still running on savings.

So I am now asking that you help me out by signing up and using it for a bit (You will need to test out some text, otherwise the referral will not count. Just copy in maybe a long document and go through some of their edits.). Here is my referral link.

You can also request for a free 2 week trial for the premium here:

Here's a little incentive to help me out too, if you can prove that you have signed up (You can show me a screenshot on discord), I'll give you 500 Dragon Scales 🐉, which is equal to a one chapter patreon access for one month.

Also, check out my Twitch, give us a hand and drop me a follow. We do a weekly stream playing games while discussing Chinese cultivation, culture, and novel topics. I also do live translation sessions, or games.

Do support the Patreon as that is our only source of income. Also, you get advanced chapters to read ahead of the public release. You also get TOOLATE chapters, but Martial Disciple tier max. Any higher still limits you to max 8 chapters for TOOLATE. EIF Chapters are available for all tiers.
