Chapter 172: Strength as a Rule

Here is wednesday’s regular release.

Editor: Hydramon

Enjoy xoxo




 

One sword strike, a single thrust, and Gong Lun had been killed by Lin Feng. He wasn’t able to fight anymore, as a sword had been lodged deep in his chest.

 

The crowd couldn’t even understand what had happened; that sword had been too quick. Besides, no force or Qi had been released with the sword. That simple and ordinary sword had been enough to take Gong Lun’s life.

 

“What terrifying strength!”

 

The crowd was looking at Lin Feng’s sword, which was still inside Gong Lun’s corpse, as it hit the ground. He had broken through to the sixth Ling Qi layer and could easily defeat Ke Cheng and Zu Ning, so why was he now laying dead on the floor beside them?

 

They obviously didn’t think that Lin Feng’s sword attack was ordinary. That was a confrontation between two strong cultivators, and they knew that they couldn’t understand the mysteries behind that sword strike.

 

The three other students who were next to Gong Lun started shaking. They were moving backwards as they stared dumbfounded at Lin Feng. A moment before, when Gong Lun was still there, they wanted to fight against Lin Feng, but he had killed Gong Lun in a single strike. Their hearts began to fill with dread. If that sword hadn’t been used against Gong Lun but against them, would have they been able to dodge it?

 

The answer was that they would be lying dead on the floor. Gong Lun was the strongest of all of them so if he wasn’t able to withstand a single attack, they were the same.

 

But at that moment, Lin Feng slowly turned around and looked at the three students. Their hearts were beating even faster.

 

“Are your rules the same as his?”

 

Lin Feng’s tone was cold. They were blankly staring at Lin Feng.

 

One of them smiled and said: “Friend, don’t get angry, I mean you no harm. If you need a cultivation room, just feel free to choose one.”

 

“Friend?” questioned Lin Feng. He then said: “Don’t think that I am blind and couldn’t see you standing with him a moment ago ready to attack me. There is no need to be a coward now and embarrass yourself.”

 

These students were stupefied. Indeed, the way they had behaved clearly indicated that they didn’t differ from Gong Lun at all. They had replied to Yu Jiao’s offer with killing intent towards Lin Feng. Lin Feng wasn’t blind, so he saw it all. Retreating for them would be pointless, they were trapped.

 

“Friend, if you need purity stones, just let me know… and you can use any of the rooms of the fourth floor.” said another of the three students. Since they couldn’t run, they  had to try and negotiate.

 

“First, I have enough purity stones. Second, I will use all the rooms on the fourth floor as I wish. Is such nonsense necessary?” said Lin Feng indifferently, which made the three of them grow even more terrified. The last remaining one said: “Well, what do you want from us then?”

 

“Cripple your own cultivation.” said Lin Feng indifferently. The three students were astonished. A cold sweat ran down their backs. If they crippled their cultivation, they would become worthless, and they would be several times weaker than a normal person. They could be humiliated by anyone. A cultivator who had never provoked others didn’t exist, and if their cultivation was crippled, that would be the end for them.

 

The crowd was also shocked. If they crippled their own cultivation, that would be a fate much worse than death. But if they were in Lin Feng’s position, then they would do the same. They had wanted to kill Lin Feng a moment before, and Lin Feng wanted to teach them a lesson.

 

“I can give you another opportunity though. If you cripple her cultivation first, then you will be exempted from crippling your own cultivation.” said Lin Feng indifferently while pointing at Yu Jiao.

 

Yu Jiao was stupefied. A moment ago, she wanted them to kill Lin Feng and had offered them her body; however, it was now Lin Feng who was asking them to cripple her cultivation.

 

When Lin Feng finished talking, the three students looked at Yu Jiao with murderous intentions. They were also vigilant to not get attacked while doing so.

 

“I will only give you the time it takes for ten breaths. If you don’t do it by then, I will cripple your cultivations.”

 

Lin Feng just said this one sentence. At that moment, the three students instantly released their energy at the same time. They all quickly rushed towards Yu Jiao.

 

In front of them was their lamb for slaughter, Yu Jiao.

 

Yu Jiao was scared to death. Being attacked by the three of them, who were all much stronger than her, was terrifying. When Lin Feng had spoken, her fate was already sealed… Or maybe, it had already been sealed when she tried to humiliate and kill Lin Feng.

 

A horrible shriek filled the fourth floor. Lin Feng didn’t even look in the direction of the shriek and calmly said: “Take her away and remove these corpses. After that, I don’t want to see any of you on the fourth floor ever again.”

 

These three students were shocked. Immediately, they took the corpses along with Yu Jiao, who did not even have the strength to stand by herself anymore, and then they left. While walking, they were still looking at Yu Jiao with a very cold look. That girl had almost cost them their cultivation. Fortunately, they hadn’t rushed towards Lin Feng like Gong Lun; otherwise, they would be dead.

 

Her cultivation had been crippled… She was now crippled for life and could not even live a normal life anymore. This was no joke.

 

Lin Feng ignored them as they left. He walked towards a room with “forbidden” written on it. A smile appeared on his face.

 

“Since these are the rules, I will also follow the rules.” Lin Feng said as his hand moved over the words and vigorously erased them.

 

Immediately after, Lin Feng stretched out a single finger and a light emerged from the tip. In the blink of an eye, the word “Lin” appeared.

 

Lin Feng then moved to the other seven rooms and did the same. The entire fourth floor had been seized by Lin Feng.

 

The crowd was blankly staring at Lin Feng and remained silent.

 

That guy was extremely powerful and incredibly daring.

 

Even if Lin Feng hadn’t been there, none of these rooms would have belonged to them because only the strong could use these rooms, that was the rule.

 

The weak cultivators had nothing to say.

 

Lin Feng, relying on his strength of the fifth Ling Qi layer, had easily killed people at the sixth Ling Qi layer. Besides, he had made other people at the sixth Ling Qi layer obey him out of fear. How majestic!

 

“Until I erase my name from these rooms, you are not able to enter any of these rooms. They are all mine, and if anyone enters them, then the consequences will be serious.” said Lin Feng sounding extremely powerful.

 

He then immediately went inside Gong Lun’s room. A rumbling noise was heard while the door closed itself. The pure Qi was emitting a bright and resplendent light as the door slowly closed itself.

 

When they saw how bright and resplendent the light was inside, they understood that Gong Lun had put enough purity stones inside to cultivate for a long time. Lin Feng didn’t need to spend anything.

 

At least, this would be enough to last until his fight against Hei Mo.

 

The pure Qi on the fourth floor was extremely thick and pure. Lin Feng had the feeling that all his pores were wide open and absorbing the Qi. He felt carefree and relaxed. He had the feeling that his body was hungry and thirsty for the Qi. He wanted to swallow all that pure Qi inside his dantian.

 

Lin Feng was sitting cross-legged, and he was using his celestial spirit as he entered in a state of mediation.

 

That pure Qi circulated around all of Lin Feng’s limbs, bones, blood vessels and muscles. They were all becoming stronger as they absorbed the pure Qi. Besides, Lin Feng wasn’t aware of it, but the pure Qi in his body was also becoming more and more refined.

 

While practicing cultivation, the notion of time didn’t exist. Lin Feng had no idea that his name was becoming more and more popular in the Celestial Academy and that his battle against Hei Mo was getting nearer and nearer.

    Before anyone bashes Lin Feng for being a total hypocrite, just remember… the other side told him to follow the “rules” of the fourth floor and now he is.

    • Vivec   •  

      He did a very good job of allowing his adversaries to shove their foots so far down their mouth that you might see them escape the other end.

    • Christian   •  

      he is still a hypocrite…

    • Adahn   •  

      He is still such a hypocrite it makes my head hurt. The very reason he started fighting them was that the notion of reserving rooms and squandering the academies resources in such a way was ludicrous to him. But when he was the one who could reserve the rooms then he reserved the whole floor, becoming worse than the people he was fighting against. He didn’t bring any “weak” people to train there too either, he just used the whole floor by himself.

      He was supposed to be someone who was disgusted by how the weak were treated by the strong, and now that he’s strong he’s acting like he’s mad with power, being more oppressive towards those weaker than him than those who were previously considered strong.

      • ColonelRogers   •  

        If people keep punching you, even if you think violence is wrong and pointless. You’ll still punch back to show that you can’t just be punched without consideration. It’s a display of his power, I doubt he’d go and kill a person who came up and tried to train with the same intentions he had. Unless they were extremely arrogant and rude, I think he’d just shrug and let it be.

        For now, it can be considered a show. If he actually killed someone who didn’t listen to what he said with no questions asked (i.e. killing someone who was not arrogantly challenging his power for the sake of showing their superiority and just found that what he was doing was unfair for others), then he could be considered a hypocrite.

        • Adahn   •  

          How could a person who sees him killing 3 people, crippling the cultivation of another and threaten some more, go and try to train in one of the rooms he’s branded? Now even the person that was missing and didn’t offend anybody won’t be able to train there since Lin Feng has branded the whole floor. Not to mention that since there was another empty room, so if he didn’t want pointless killing then he could have headed to that one when the owner of the room he had first chosen came.

          And although it wasn’t technically killing without any questions, it practically was, as it was by far the most likely outcome considering his actions. He tried to enter a room, the owner tried to defend it (by asking for help) and he killed everyone that attacked him. I don’t think that there would be many people that would give up that room without at least trying to defend it in some way. And even though he could just display his power and then make them scram since they aren’t really threats, he decides to only display his power when he kills with his first attack and not give a way out to anyone from that point on.

          And although I’m no stranger to indiscriminate killing thanks to Chu Feng, I had hoped that he’d at least stay true to his ideals. The reason why I keep bringing up the branding of the whole floor, is because that signifies him being a part of the problem instead of the solution. He even made the resources more exclusive than before he came to that floor. And although I get how ideals can be corrupted once you’re put under enough pressure, that’s how normal people or villains work, MCs even more than strength, are supposed to have an exceptional character.

          • default   •  

            Do u even read he just branded the 7 rooms that have a forbidden sign

          • cdlevit   •  

            I prefer to think that he trys to force the academy to do something, to change the rules or whatever.

            Still, he branded the entire fourth floor. By the right of power. Those who don’t have power can only accept. That’s it.

            Thank you notsane & team.

          • Hendricksen-sama   •  

            Please tell me your not one of those stupid green westerners who have never suffered in their lives.
            Us Asians have it though, nost especially in the Southeast.

            I will tell you this. THE STRONG CREATES THE RULES, THE WEAK OBEYS. That is what’s currently happening now, don’t deny it.
            You say that Lin Feng is a hypocrite? Let me ask you. He branded his name in the rooms yes, BUT HE DIDN’T SAY HE WOULDN’T LET ANYONE USE IT YOU STUPID RETARD If a decent person asked him for his permission, then totally unlike Yu Jiao, he would agree.

            And are you stupid? It says that nobody can own the room, just rent it. You say Yu Jiao defended her right and asked fr help? YES FOR HELP TO KILL SOMEONE YOU FUCKER. If Lin Feng hadn’t done what he did, he’d be the one dead instead. And the fact that he wrote his name on the rooms signified that although he is being audacious as to make it his, HE DID NOT FORBIDDEN ON IT, WHICH YU JIAO DID BTW. I think you’re just criticizing Lin Feng in the first place because u want attention and you want that slut Yu Jiao.

            And he did keep his ideals. He gave those 3 a chance to keep their cultivation. And his ideal was that if you mock or put on airs on me, face the consequences! And Yu Jiao did. So he sticked to his ideals. In the first place, you’re nothing but a hypocrite yourself. Saying that an MC shouls always have good character. Bullshit. Every story out there is filled with good, stupid MCs. Our MCs in this type of novel is sensible and rational. If you don’t like it, then stay away from every xianxia novel fucking westerner.

              • kalp456   •  

                I am Asian (and from SEA, Philippines) and I say he is a hypocrite.

            • lohj   •  

              Just ignore these retards. They won’t try to look at the bigger picture. They like to cherry pick and take things out off context and act like they’re a fucking saint.

            • Amaelzaekil   •  

              um, no. He did say that no one is allowed to enter the rooms:

              Until I erase my name from these rooms, you are not able to enter any of these rooms. They are all mine, and if anyone enters them, then the consequences will be serious. – Lin Feng

              But honestly, I think Troll Feng is just teaching the others a lesson. though I do not know what this lesson is.

            • Adahn   •  

              It’d be nice if at least you read things through before ranting. As it’s been pointed out in the comments below he did brand the whole floor and say there would be serious consequences if anyone else used them.

              And I said that an MC’s character must be extraordinary, not extraordinarily good. Sure, him paying back tenfold those who try to oppress him is a part of his character which is why I wasn’t surprised he acted the way he did by killing those people, I just mentioned that the “MC is good, all who he fights are bad” mentality is flawed, and that things aren’t so black and white.

              But he was also supposed to hate the fact that the strong rule and the weak obey, which is why he’s at odds with the nobles so often. But now that he has some power he’s branded a whole floor, proving himself to be worse than the people who had the power until now. So that ideal of his is now corrupted, which is why I said it wasn’t befitting an MC. I can respect MCs having a wild range of ideals, but I can’t help but find them lacking when they fail to stick up to them.

              And I probably was particularly disappointed in this case because I thought that even though that the strong rule and the weak obey is a fact in both xianxia and in the real world (albeit the two worlds have different notions about what strength is), it isn’t something that should happen and I respected going against it. Which is why I hope Amaelzaekil is right and there was a hidden ploy in motion and I was just quick to judge him. For your reference my favorite MC is Meng Hao. He will kill when he has to but doesn’t take pleasure from it or flaunt his strength, when he can he will find a way to persevere through his wits and he is stubborn beyond words.

              Anyway this is all I had to say about how MCs should ideally be, and considering that the new chapter came out, it will be the last time I check this page so our arguement will probably be put on hold. And you should really take things more easy, getting angry so quickly is the mark of an immature person.

          • rox   •  

            If you dont like the story or our MC then stop reading!!!
            He already follow the rule “RULE OF THE STRONG”

  6. crazyboy1200   •  

    i kinda feel sorry or her, since shes crippled. Wouldn’t sh get raped on the streets? Or become someones dog?

    Ain’t it better to die instead?

    truly stupid….

    thanks for the chapter…kinda don’t like this one.

    • Noctum   •  

      Don’t pity her. She brought this on herself.

      • Bobenstein   •  

        Well… don’t forget their age and the seemingly lack of any descent education for common sense..

        Young and stupid, raised to be arrogant and with little chance in their not so long life to get to know anything different.

        Yeah she asked for it but I do pity her a bit. Especially her future prospects being nothing but a plaything for some random scrum bag.

        • Noctum   •  

          She was doing that even before her cultivation got crippled. Her future will be the same, just without being able to cultivate.

          • gokubro   •  

            i think it said she just used men to get what she wanted but never actually did it with them but hey, act like a slut eventually you just might become one

      • Maou   •  

        Body, Money, Status etc cant solve everything. She’s just stupid relying on others.

        • noobaloob   •  

          In that world though, 99.9% of the time those things win..

          She wasn’t stupid for that thought process, she just happened to run against plot armor

    • Parth   •  

      well…are all the people in this world cultivators? If so then yeah (she’ll be seen as a lower human). If not, she’s probably gonna be shunned by her family and end up on the streets (same outcome either way)

    • Robbini   •  

      a) She brought it upon herself.
      b) She’s now a living example of what happens when you bother Lin Feng.
      c) Quite a lot of people can’t even cultivate, so she won’t be alone. She will however, have to adapt.
      d) Call it chivalry. Don’t kill women, get their friends to save their lives by just wounding them.

      • Phantom Starlight   •  

        Pretty sure she is below a normal person now actually.
        She still has her looks, so she will probably still be “playing” with those three as well.

        Somehow I don’t think she cam live a normal life even if she wanted to now.

        Finally. I absolutely love seeing a woman in xianxia getting her comeuppance. Usually they get off so much lighter or even completely compared to a man in their same position.
        For no reason other than they are female.
        THEN the authors often have the gall to say that their MC “doesn’t care if they are male or female young or old” at other places in the story.

        Actually. the case with Liu Fei was kinda like that in some ways.

    • Kharmey   •  

      Few random guys died because of her… How can you feel sorry for this slut? She will have a hellish futur. It’s karma, that’s all.

      • Adahn   •  

        Well it isn’t hard to feel sorry for her if you view it from her perspective. An unknown and arrogant guy came and tried to use her room just as she was going to enter it (and considering how things were running so far, it could truly be considered her room).

        Strength is considered everything in this world, so not being able to cultivate there would affect her future, so she asked people she knew for help in kicking this arrogant guy out. She did flirt with them to make them agree, but she wasn’t willing to do anything more at that point, given that according to chapter 169 none from the academy had managed to be with her yet. Anyway, she asked for their help in driving him out and the guys being hot-blooded decided to do that by killing him (she had never said at that point that she wanted him dead, just driven out of her room).

        The arrogant guy killed them instead and then told her to cripple her own cultivation. Given that she was an extremely beautiful woman, being unable to protect herself could lead to a fate worse than death. Being scared out of her wits at this prospect, it was only at this point that she actually asked for his death and decided to actually sell her body, something she had never done before, in hopes of avoiding having to do so every single day of her life from now on.

        The guys she relied on failed, and then turned on her to save themselves, while the arrogant guy who was so against the branding of rooms went on to brand the whole floor. I don’t know about you, but she does look pitiable to me.

        • ColonelRogers   •  

          Maybe if she had actually realized she was wrong somewhere along the way and actually, I don’t know, tried apologizing I might feel pity for her. But until the end, she did not think that she was in the wrong. Rather, she feared being wronged by someone who she herself wronged.

          Though her attitude is understandable by how almost every fucking noble in this series was raised, it is by no means deserving of sympathy. Those who don’t apologize and admit their wrongs obviously won’t even have a chance to receive forgiveness.

          • noobaloob   •  

            you should be sympathetic if your viewing it from our viewpoint. Lin Feng is from our world right? I’m not saying he shouldn’t have killed her… she directly caused 3 people to die for the sake of a room (though from her POV the room would equal her ‘face’ and this world is stupid on that front) but destroying her cultivation in this world is a fate worse than death.

            best case scenario is now she kills herself before those 3 dudes rape her death – even if they dont she’d end up on the streets as the lowest order of prostitute.

          • Adahn   •  

            Well I might agree with you, but she did ask for forgiveness. After Lin Feng killed the two people he asked for help, she did give up her room and tried to get on his good side. She only asked for help again from more people and decided to actually sell out her body and not just flirt, after Lin Feng refused to stay his hand and threatened her with a fate which could be worse than death.

            And although I do get the “don’t spare her just because she’s a woman, she sent 3 people to their deaths standpoint”, don’t forget that she had only asked the two people to drive him out of her room, she never told them to kill him, this was something they decided on their own in order to show off. And what happened from that was just her trying to save her life by any means necessary, which I find an understandable trait. So I don’t really believe that she even wronged him in the first place. He went to occupy her room and she understandably tried to prevent it. My guess is that it’s a normal scene that often happens in the Academy and only ended with so much bloodshed due to Lin Feng’s overbearing manner.

        • lohj   •  

          Omg… you’re retarded.

    • shade0180   •  

      She’s already prostituting herself even before crippling her cultivation so nothing would really change

    • BlackShiv   •  

      She provoked Lin Feng and tried to get him killed bu seducing uninvolved people. Such a disgusting personality, when the situation gets turned around you feel bad for her, really?

      Lin Feng just returned the favour by sending those guys after her cultivation wich was the exact same thing as what she was trying to do to him.

      Cultivator rule #1: If you are trying to take a life you must be prepared to lose one. Well that is unless you have plot armour.

      • Guest   •  

        you guys are Savage, I wonder what your morals are in real life

        • Gohankuten   •  

          Are we really savage or are we thinking of it from the perspective of someone from that world and thus find no problems with the treatment since that is something normal in that world? Remember we can’t use the morals we have in our own world to judge this really since we have to think of it from the perspective of the world we are reading about.

          • Guest   •  

            Bud, that was my opinion after reading their response to someone who was pitying a girl who is a teenager and made a wrong decision because the society she was raised in made her grow up with these beliefs. And by the way if you had the perspective of someone of that world that who would that be an elder with so much power that you pity her too or a servant with no cultivation, No it would be that you are just seeing it from the perspective of the main character like everyone else and in my opinion he is also a savage. I do like this story by the way so i am just stating by opinion.

            • lohj   •  

              Errrmahgerddddd pity this girl…. when you feel nothing for the guys who died. She’s manipulative. Instead of using her own hands she used and play with other people using sex as exchange. The worst kind of evil. Also you’re hypocrite for defending this kind of character. Maybe the retarded western SJW disease is spreading…

        • bakaleaf   •  

          lol speak for your self people who point the wrong of others are more of the wrong doerhimself.
          Hypocrite person like should just get a life
          Savageness is not applicable in real life alone. You are reading a fiction novel to compare it in real life proves how mentally ill you are.

        • ColonelRogers   •  

          I don’t get people. This girl has no value for human life, literally doesn’t even care about those she allies with. She pits people against each other for her own sake, doesn’t even fight for herself. She didn’t apologize or even admit that she was in the wrong. When she was given an out, she called more people to die for her. Though it might have spelled a life of humiliation, I imagine she should have enough backing to ensure that she wouldn’t immediately be killed once she crippled her cultivation (If we do indeed think that her arrogance is stemmed from the way she was raised within a noble family).

          I understand how people might slander Lin Feng for being too cruel. But I think she got what was coming for her. Even if Lin Feng’s actions weren’t justified, karma would have made her suffer one way or another. Pity is saved for people who suffer after doing nothing to deserve it. At the most, I’d say she was wronged just as she wronged others.

      • Gohankuten   •  

        But Lin Feng at least is always prepared to lose his life cause he understands that he could lose his life if he messes with the wrong people. He can’t help having plot armour protect him from dying unlike these others who are arrogant and aren’t prepared for the people they bully to be able to kill them instead.

    • Yu Jiao   •  

      She doesn’t really deserve pity just because she’s a girl considering how ruthless she is to everyone else. If a guy gets crippled, it doesn’t mean he won’t get raped on the streets or become someone’s dog as well. She’s still living so she still has opportunities to turn her life around. There’s always methods of healing although who knows if someone is willing to use those resources on her. She can also choose to die later if she really dislikes living. When you’re dead you can’t make any more choices so it’s not better to die instead.

      • Christian   •  

        wtf you cant un-criple your cultivation dude(no yun che bullshit)

    • Christian   •  

      that is the point dude :v

  12. lefaucheur95   •  

    again no damage they do not even try to kill his friend …..

  13. BlackShiv   •  

    I feel like the story is stuck in a loop atm. It is literally him training, getting distirbed from training, killing those who disturbed his training and then the circle repeats itself.

    Thanks for the chapter regardless and i hope the fight with Hei Mo is soon so we can move on with the story

  14. zamornews   •  

    those 3 dudes will definitely take their revenge on her tonight. and to you Lin Feng, do what you do best. that’s all we ask

    Finally i really wanted to see that b1tch suffer, offering her body in such a shameless way…instead of taking responsability for her actions, i dare to even say that if she was to admit guilt to her wrong doing Lin would have made her something like a slave not in a sexual way but more like a follower…

    But she had to push things way overboard, welp…as Sans said: “you will have a bad time”

    Now that she’s crippled… she’d now either:

    1) Be forgotten
    2) Try to get vengeance
    3) Learn regret and join Lin Feng’s harem and maybe one day regain her cultivation
    4) Be dead

    I personally think she got punished bad enough now… hope she learns regret and join the harem….

    • Noctum   •  

      I hope she doesn’t. Who wants a slut in their harem? I think Lin Fend would be repulsed by the idea of her following him around.

      And i don’t think you can regain your cultivation once it has been crippled.

      • Noctum   •  

        Lin Feng*……

      • DMR   •  

        Lin Feng’s gonna probably sleep with a bunch of women himself, so it’d be hypocritical of him to not want her for something like that. He didn’t get all the girls yet, be he probably will one day….

        And she’d be CHANGED in the 3rd option…

        Why shouldn’t he give her another chance if she changes her ways? Humans do bad things, and if they try to improve, why not accept them?

        • Ooze   •  

          How is it hypocritical? If he likes women, it doesn’t mean he needs to like ALL women. Especially one that tried to manipulate and kill him as many times as she did. Letting her off and sleeping with her goes against his character. He’s never let anyone that’s wronged him off… I don’t know, but after developing a character for 172 chapters, I’d get the feeling that the author wouldn’t stray from his characterization.

          She didn’t change her ways… That’s why she was trying to sleep with him. When that didn’t work, she gave other people the opportunity to sleep with her in order to kill Lin Feng. She stuck to her character to the end and didn’t give any sign of changing. She never tried to improve. She just tried to manipulate with her sexuality.

          Not saying your thought process isn’t wrong for ACTUAL humans. This being a story and a martial world where killing people is second nature; it’s not weird at all for what happened to have taken place.

          • Ooze   •  

            I can’t edit so I’ll post below it. When I said he’s never let anyone that’s wronged him off. I meant in a way that they were after something completely detrimental to Lin Feng while thinking of their own benefit or goals. Usually the people he ends are looking to harm or kill him or his friends. People like Liu Fei that had no bad intentions obviously haven’t really been harmed in any way (Even though she had tried to kill him). Following his character, he has a righteous streak in him.

          • Ooze   •  

            OH MY GOD… I’M SORRY. I didn’t read what was written above. Disregard everything I said.

        • Kioxe   •  

          No…just no….doesn’t make sense for that to happen. I’m pretty sure that would not go well and it doesn’t fit with what the novel has built up for Lin Feng. Also, there are differences between a good and bad harem. I’d much rather get one where everyone can get along emotionally and mentally. Now to say that Lin Feng is going to sleep a lot is a far stretch. He hasn’t slept with anyone yet even after 170 chapters unlike other novels. Itll probably be train/grind for a while before the author would bring any special scene in.

        • AkuyaKibito   •  

          Yeah, everyone was also “Fuck this b*tch, kill her” or the like when Liu Fei was always trying to kill Lin Feng, but now there is noone against her anymore :l

    The amount of pure savage this was one awesome chapter

  27. youngdrgn   •  

    Thx for the chapter.

  28. SAimNE   •  

    i feel like he would have been cooler if he kept to only acknowledging the true rules rather than suddenly adopting the fake rules now that it didn’t inconvenience him. was more epic when he just absolutely refused to acknowledge their stupid abuse they called rules rather than enforcing it.

  29. kenchan   •  

    Personally, for me, I think that slut deserved it because she didn’t allow him to enter the “forbidden” room because it was hers (originally). Plus she also asked two strong cultivators to kill him and Lin Feng tried to give some face to her but she just shoved it down the drain with a plunger to boot lol.

    She is also a two faced bitch lol. Being seductive and getting men to sleep with her while at the same time calling them trash for not getting the job done for her lol. I also think she was evil.

  30. Some1   •  

    dang this mc is without a doubt even more merciless than even chu feng and we all know how merciless he is lol.
    to me chu feng and lin feng are a lot better than those who are strong yet treat the weak as trash.
    thx for the chapter 😀

  31. Frozzy   •  

    Thank you!. It is hypocritical technically but that is on purpose, he is just treating them an eye for an eye that’s about it. That is like the whole XianXia principle. An Eye for an eye.

  32. Suoh   •  

    CAUGHT UP!! WOOOOOO!

  33. chad001   •  

    Meh, I’ve seen the divisions on Ling Feng’s actions a lot. Whether or not he’s moral, ‘right’, or what lens we should look at him with is subjective. Honestly, I’m more bothered by the fact that he didn’t kill her outright, making his approach different this time. I don’t know if that was sexism, mercy, or something else, but just killing her probably would’ve been more consistent with his usual approach to things.

  34. greedxviii   •  

    Wow… that whole thing was rather unreasonable…

  35. SoB   •  

    When man and woman can kill each other, have the same degree of body protection (cultivation) there is no reason to blame a man to kill a woman. So our logic is different for their logic. And no moral issue bullshit there.

  36. ambi   •

  37. ZaX   •  

    There will be a day Lin Feng would get oppressed like if he keeps that up. Thanks for the chapter

      He wont.. he got plot armor. Lol

    Thanks for the chapters.
    Also that bitch had it coming ,our MC wanted room and that girl already wanted to kill him. Or did you forget about it? What goes around ,comes around !

  40. Tikoy   •  

    I hope those 3 also wise up and wont seek revenge.. So far, I can only recall 1 instance of a person the MC let live and learned his lesson

  41. Envy   •  

    ty for updates..

  42. goodygoodguy   •  

    Low profile is still the best. Being arrogant can only get himself killed. Oh well, he’s being protected by the plot anyway.

  43. olbid   •  

    Thanks for the chapter.

  44. Ruki   •  

    Well, the girl really deserve some pity. He should have her killed instead. That way she won’t br humiliated further. Those 3 will probably vent their anger to her by raping her. She’s now powerless on a power-based world.

    But then again, she brought all of it upon herself. The academy provided that tower for all the students to use but they made their own rules to brand their chosen room. When Lin Feng came, there’s no one on that room so he chose it, disregarding the ‘Student’s self-made rules.

    Anyway thanks for the chapter! Hope this loop end soon xD

    • AmbroscusOdium   •  

      People keep saying he should have killed her rather than crippling her, saying crippling her was too heartless. Let me just say, people only complain about a character getting crippled when said character is a female. Also, someone brought up rape for no reason but while we’re on the topic, this women just promised her body to 5-6 different men without giving it any thought at all. Also, people are saying rape/crippling is too far and that they should have just died, you honestly need to think about what you’re saying. In a world where strength rules all, infact, that’s basically the underlying struggle in the story. In such a world, when provoking someone stronger than you, you’d be killed if you were lucky. This isn’t only the MC, this applies to nearly everyone. The women knew this and still provoked him and even started promising her body to several people to get the MC killed. It was, as they say, having eyes but not seeing mount Tai. Notice how when she realized she was either going to die or be crippled she didn’t start preaching about what is and isn’t morally correct, she didn’t start begging for her life either, she realized she fucked up and her exact words were, “Damn it.” And truthfully, the MC said if you don’t want to die cripple your own cultivation, clearly she would much rather have her cultivation crippled than die otherwise she would have killed herself once she was crippled. Since she decided that being crippled was better than dying who are all of you to complain that crippling her was too cruel?

    So those that don’t believe what the MC did was right, please tell me what you would do in his exact situation (this means take into consideration the type of world he lives in with all his past experiences and with the type of people that surround him)?

    For those that say he should have let her live then I say she would just bear a grudge (like most people in these types of novels) and then seduce a much stronger person to go and kill the MC so this option is out of the window. I mean our MC is not stupid ya’ know!

    What if he just killed her instead? Well my answer to this is that he gave her 2 options initially. One was that he does kill her the other would be the harsher option and that was to cripple her cultivation. So he did give her options, it was just she chose to take advantage (once again) and get other people to try and kill the MC.

    My biggest qualm is if this person was instead a male, there would not be such an outburst amongst the people on the comments. It was just that she was a girl who had her cultivation crippled instead. Nothing has been said about the 3 males who were killed my MC.

    My last point is that the MC has never stated that he was a ‘saint’. If he was he would be dead by now and we wouldn’t have this story to read. As such all of you complaining about the MC probably should stop reading this novel. He lives in a cruel world where the strong are revered and the weak are disdained. The people he deals with are people who adhere to this way of life. He took the rooms to further consolidate the fact that he was strong amongst his peers so that no longer will people look down on him and more importantly his friends (which are his ‘achilles heel’ apart from frost girl).

  48. Amaelzaekil   •  

    I first thought that Lin Feng has gone soft when he didn’t order her death. Then I remembered that living can sometimes be worse than death.

  49. Lights   •  

    I thought he would have kept that girl after he ordered those three guys to cripple her cultivation

  50. David   •  

    Ugh… I hate it when readers try to find every single little instance where the MC does something a bit hypocritical/not good. He’s a fucking person for christ’s sake, he can make mistakes especially when enraged. Please calm down with the nitpicking. I have yet to meet anybody that hasn’t done a hypocritical thing in their life. Also they told him to follow the unspoken rules of the tower which he is now doing … lol.

    On the matter of the girl whose cultivation is now crippled. I don’t care in what world, anyone who is trying to take a life should also be willing to put their own life in risk. Cmon guys… she basically hired three random people to kill him and he should just let her go? really? I sorta find it weird about the level of sympathy for the girl compared to the level of sympathy for the Lin Feng.

  51. Voydom   •  

    I wonder if there is a benefit to having whole floor to yourself … like the energy from other rooms can be absorbed, albeit with low efficiency. Probably not, since the rooms need to be closed and inserted with purity stones.

    Thank you for the chapters !!! 🙂

  52. Cupcake ninja   •  

    personally i dont give a fuck if she had no regard for life, no one in that fucking planet does anyway. Lin Feng could have been more reasonable, no they both could have but still. she got others killed, who cares. big deal. now if she aint raped every fucking day that would be a fucking miracle. i dont care how ruthless a woman is, if you dont spare them, then you had best fucking kill them. Rape is something i absolutely despise and no matter what crime a woman commits i dont think she coulld ever deserve to be a fucking sex slave.

    Ling Feng barely has any morals, which i undrerstand, but from my point of view he thinks he is the only one with any semblance of morality on that planet when he simply isnt. i dont mind being merciless, he can kill off a entire family and their dog and i wont have anything to say against him but shit man at least be like chu feng and dont try to justify yourself or think you are a bit kinder than others would have been when you just arent.

    i understand both sides of the arguements here, and i just think that since he isnt from that world originally, he should be more like Ye Xiwen from MGS. that guy only provokes when need be and does what it takes when the situation truly calls for it. He is neither overly arrogant, righteous, or fucks up and get others dragged into his own mess.

    im kinda disgusted after reading all the other comments here. Everthing that could have been said has been said. i hate that girl too but i understand her point of view and also understand Lin Feng’s but honestly if would be best if he had killed her. she cant help what kind of person she became because of the type of world she was raised in but people can change. Lin Feng doesnt have that excuse and is pretty inconsistent in his own actions when compared to his supposed ideals. Not just me but other readers have noticed that as well. i hope she does change and becomes a harem member, maybe even regaining her ability to cultivate. cause regaining that ability is pretty fucking common in xianxia so you people cant say its impossible.

    this entire story is getting pretty repetitive, more so than others. zero plot developement recently. ugh, i really hope the author moves things along. watching nonstop fighting over face and whatnot kinda gets boring.
