Everlasting Immortal Firmament Book 01 Chapter 017: Trouble Stems from Inequality Rather than Scarcity


A loud sound rang out as many Song City citizens burst the doors of another shop belonging to Gu Hai on Song City’s streets.

“Hahaha! According to the emperor’s decree, everyone can participate in destroying all of Old Demon Gu’s businesses in the Song Nation!”

“Don’t come over. This is robbery!”

“You are the ones who are doing the robbing! Dogs of Old Demon Gu, scram!”

“Mine! The incense burner is mine!”

“This exquisite flower vase is mine! Don’t snatch with me!”

“Ah! Don’t trample me!”

“Scram! It’s all mine!”

Countless ordinary citizens poured into Gu Hai’s shop, frantically snatching up items.

The matter of the Gu Song Silversmith showed that the citizens who robbed it were innocent. The royal court even encouraged everyone.

Innocent despite robbing?

This information seemed to grow wings, instantly spreading throughout Song City.

Anyone with any brains in Song City immediately thought of the wealth in the Gu Song Silversmith. That was a horrifying amount of money. Perhaps it was just a pinch to the royal court. However, it was an astronomical sum for ordinary citizens.

They did not need to work or labor hard. They just needed to take it. If they could take it, it would be theirs. Furthermore, it would be more than what they could possibly earn over a few lifetimes.

The swift will obtain something, and the slow will receive nothing. Should I go or not?

Even the emperor encouraged us to go. Are we just going to watch from our houses like idiots? If we keep watching, there will be nothing left.

The emperor encouraging us means that this is bestowed on us by the emperor. How can we push away something the emperor bestowed on us?

This is a mountain of gold. If I can take it, it is rightfully mine. Why would I not want it?

There was no need for any organizing or leaders. Anyone with any brains would immediately rush to a shop belonging to Gu Hai. When the people who held back because of morals saw their friends following the decree and robbing, they could no longer sit still, either.


Everyone in the city went crazy. As long as it was Gu Hai’s shop, countless people instantly filled it. It seemed like all the citizens of the city rushed over.

Practically all of Gu Hai’s shops locked their doors at the same time. However, that could not stop the enthusiasm of the citizens.

So what if the doors were locked?

“Make way! Make way! We brought tools to ram the door open!” someone shouted.

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.


Join the Discord to chat about the novel or anything else and earn the server currency that can be exchanged for advanced chapters:

Check out my Youtube channel to watch me play games as well as the occasional live translation session:
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.
