TDoE V2 Chapter 14: Azra

“They may be useless right now, but that’s only temporary… Ugh, it’s just that I hate Enchanting and Inscription. Even though I have all these amazing designs in my head, I can’t actually do anything with them! It’s so frustrating!” Cultivation of the physical body was tedious enough on its own. Needing to study and practice two incredibly complicated Professions, while also finding time to make a fuckton of guns… Honestly, that kid was pretty damn impressive. Continue reading

TDoE V2 Chapter 13: The Divine Armory

Until that moment, I truly hadn’t realized how crazy the world really was. At first I was with Di, then I went to a ‘peaceful’ underwater palace where everyone seemed pretty nice. I had treated that situation with the random psychos in the woods as some isolated incident that probably didn’t happen very often. Continue reading

TDoE V2 Chapter 12: Fortuitous Encounters

Don’t you just love it when crazy old people decide to give you stuff for free? Well, I definitely do… Unless that was a euphemism, then I don’t really know how to feel about that question. Continue reading

TDoE V2 Chapter 11: Shopping

“Rank-F3 Demonic Thunder-Fish Oil: 35 CP.” An ointment that could treat electrical burns for Apprentices. It was also used in various Cultivation Methods that involved tempering a person’s flesh with lightning. There were only three-ounces in the tiny spray-bottle. Continue reading

TDoE V2 Chapter 10: Above the Water

The ‘Blooming Orchid’ Secret Technique that Di had wanted to teach me required me to have a Dryadic or Treant Bloodline. Hua Mei had her ‘Vicious Maw’ ability, which could only be practiced by people who were related to sharks. However, since most Humans on Genesis didn’t have any special Bloodlines, obviously the majority of Secret Techniques were designed for ‘normals’. Continue reading

TDoE V2 Chapter 8: Master Hua Jiang

Even though there were metal wheels on the bottom of Mei’s luggage and the floor was mostly smooth marble, it still wasn’t very easy for her to pull the damn thing. It must have weighed at least two-hundred pounds. There were all sorts of soaps, perfumes, preservatives, a folded up massage table, sleeping bags, way more clothes than either of us would ever need and other random shit that I can’t even remember. She definitely would have taken the furniture too, but the opening of the ‘Extradimensional Chest’ wasn’t quite big enough to fit anything. Continue reading

TDoE V2 Chapter 7: Conscription

When you spend enough time with another person, you either end up hating them… or loving them. Now, I’m not saying that you need to have sex with them or that sexual desire even has anything to do with it. That fondness that builds up can even be felt for inanimate objects. I definitely had an emotional connection to my computer in my last life, even though I knew that it couldn’t love me back. Continue reading

TDoE V1 Chapter 31: The Beginning of My Life

Clearing away the hundreds that were crawling over her body was actually pretty easy. Totally horrible, but not difficult at all. The little fuckers would splatter or explode with even the slightest electrocution. There was all sorts of ectoplasmic cockroach bits all over my arms and hands, not to mention that woman’s skin. However, she didn’t even seem to notice it at all. Continue reading
