Author’s Introduction

The Great Tang countryside with the warm sunlight, the golden wheat, and white herons in flight.

Zhang Xiaobao: “I didn’t think my ability could change any great events. My thinking was simple—to change my family’s living conditions. But oftentimes, things don’t happen according to how you think it will. As I was working to improve my family’s living conditions, a lot of things happened. How do you say, hmm… Simply put, it was the butterfly effect? No, no, no, this metaphor is a bit too flashy. Crudely put, I am the rat turd dropped inside the pot.”

Wang Juan: “Ever since I came to this era together with an International Criminal Swindler, I declare that this world no longer has any swindlers.”

  1. Hi, is it possible if you can provide me the link you use for raws? Some raw chapters in some websites are missing and mixes up chapters. Just wondering if the raws you are using have correct chapters.


    • I provide the link to the official raws from Qidian on this page up above where I list the original title of the novel, which is what I use. Any other raws are pirated so that’s why you’re encountering that issue with the misnumbered or missing chapters.


      • You can read the free chapters without an account but yes, you would need a Qidian account and pay for points to read the VIP chapters. The 1st volume of the novel is free and the VIP pay wall only comes up in the last quarter of the 2nd volume.

        My translation is currently only in the 1st volume so I am using the Qidian text as a source. Since you asked me what my current source was when you expressed such concern that there could be errors in the Chinese raws that I am using, you should rest assured. There may still be the occasional typo but they would be honest mistakes of the author’s and not an artifact from the leeching process.

        P.S. It sounds like your questions are of the type that are either spoilery and/or require a longer back and forth conversation. I would prefer that you move this conversation elsewhere because you’re commenting on one of the intro page for the novel. I would like to not have spoiler discussions right smack dab in the center for everyone who might not be able to read ahead to see. There is a reason I am moderating comments. Also, I have a contact form available as well if you really need me to answer something.


    • Is there any news? its been 4 months I think.

      If Qidian International haven’t said anything then maybe contact one of the bigger groups like Gravity Tales, volarenovels, Wuxiaworld or any other group. Maybe even try posting in the Novel Update forum to see if there are any good suggestions.

      I hope there will be some news soon and hopefully new chapters as well. Cheers.

  2. I am not sure if you are not having any luck or if you lost interest.

    If you lost interest then please just announce that so someone else might pick up the novel. I don’t think any group will be able to top your quality but at least we will have some chapters, I mean there are 1270 chapters and we are only on the 49th chapter.

    I really hope you can manage to work something out so you can continue and if not then please just give any news or announce something.

    Thanks for the 49 chapters so far.

    • My housing situation is still unstable. I’m trying to get it fixed right now but it’s taking a lot more of my time and energy. I am hoping to start regular updates within the next 2 weeks though… I’m sorry that my crappy situation has affected everyone…
