Reincarnator – Chapter 1: Returning to the Beginning

A god who loved watching bloody battles the most created a new world to get rid of his boredom.

Fight and kill, a reward will be given.

If you are lazy, you will die.

The god named the bizarre world <Abyss> and started to slowly pour in the life forms he created.

****************

“As I expected, only one person can go back to the past. Do we need to have a popularity vote?”
Keldian, one of the four people who were standing in front of the crystal and who had a golden book, muttered while looking around the crystal.

<Erkanian’s Time Space Crystal>
A great tool that is said to have the mythical power of sending one to the past.
And the last remaining hope of the humankind which entered the Abyss 50 years ago and perished.

A man in the corner with a massive sword spoke out at those words.
“I’m going. The strongest person should go.”
Keldian laughed at those words.
“Kangtae, you’ve just been lucky and gotten strong by stuffing runes and items. It’ll be much better if I go.”
“Keldian, I acknowledge your intellect but there were numerous occasions of disagreements when you clowned around with it. I shall go instead.”
Keldian stared at Eres and then laughed.
“Eres, you’re too naive. Thinking of the troubles underneath you, you disqualify as well.”

The three who were arguing stopped and stared into the distance.
Huge dragons that showed off their massive bodies were flying with incredible speed.
The temple in which the crystal resided and the woman who saw the real owners of the crystals, Eres, spoke out with a bittersweet face.
“It seems like it isn’t the time to argue.”

The fact that the dragons were flying here means that the forces they used to buy time have all been annihilated.
If those had died, these 4 were the last of mankind.
The golden dragon race was one of the top ruling classes even in the Abyss.
They weren’t opponents for the dragons as they struggled just to get this far.

Eres sighed with a regrettable face and spoke while looking at the man with a black hair sitting in the corner.
“Although it feels a little unfair there’s no other way. Hansoo, you go. Everyone agrees?”
At those words Kangtae and Keldian held a reluctant face then sighed as well.
“Can I really not go? I have confidence I can do well.”
“…”
“Alright. Don’t look at me like that. Petty ones.”
Kangtae complained with an extremely pitiful face.
Then Hansoo sighed with a tired look.
“Can’t I stop fighting now?”
Hansoo shook his head.

50 years since the great war between the original races who had been dragged into the Abyss.
The survivors had to fight rigorously every day for 50 years.

Just to survive.

“I’ve fought too long.”
Hansoo shook his head.
As if it’s allright to die like this.
But Eres’ head shook with a firm look.
“You are the one who has to go.”
The four people here including herself arrived this far because they were the most outstanding of the 7 billion people.
They had confidence to do better if they returned to the past and to do so they needed another chance.
But everyone knew inside.
He’s the one who has to go.

The ruler classes of abyss were so strong that even if they went back in time they didn’t have a complete guarantee that they could win against them.
However, he started 20 years after they did yet he stood shoulder to shoulder with them.
If he had bloomed his unique potential a little earlier, no, 5 years earlier, then they wouldn’t have been pushed back this far.

Hansoo looked at the three and then spoke out.
“Say something, I should at least listen to the last words of my friends.”
If it was anybody else it wouldn’t have mattered but how could he ignore their words.
As Hansoo watched the three with a regrettable look, Kangtae spoke out first.
“You. If you have the chance to acquire my runes and items, take them all and use them.”
“Huh? Don’t I give them to the you of the past?”
Hansoo asked with a surprised face.
His items and runes were immeasurable to the point that his nickname was fate creator.
To the point where a huge problem between them occurred.
“Yeah, it’s better that you use them instead of me. If you’re going to do something, do it right.”
Hansoo nodded at those words.

“Eres, what about you?”
“Don’t fling off people who approach you just because it’s annoying and take care of them.”
“I will try.”
“Oh come on, you’re going to save humanity aren’t you? Think about how cool it is. Listen to the leader.”
“Well, if the situation allows it.”
“Sigh..”

Hansoo turned his back to the sighing Eres as he asked Keldian last:
“Keldian, what about you? Oh by the way I have no confidence in using my brain as well as you. I have no confidence in collecting all the skills you use either.”
Keldian replied with a cold face:
“I don’t have much. If you go back to the past… get rid of those ‘cockroaches’ who will only be of harm during the great war. And that Light Monarch, kill him for sure. That is my request.”
Hansoo nodded and Keldian smiled with a satisfied smile. Then he lifted up his book and started mumbling something.

Then shining light bursted out of the crystal and surrounded Hansoo as he disappeared with the light.
“I should rest now.”
They wanted to go but they also wanted to rest.
They didn’t know their true feelings so they said no in case they regretted it.
Since this chance is literally the last chance.
However since it was decided and he was sent off, they clearly knew their true feelings.
Since their minds were now at rest.
At the same time they felt bad for Hansoo.
“Take care. We leave it up to you.”
The three watched the disappeared Hansoo as they smiled with a mix of regret and relief. Soon the energy blasted out by the golden dragons swept them from above like a storm.

    Wow great! First time for me to read a novel in which someone goes back to the past with proper way, and proper reason.

    Thanks for translating~~

    Amazing, this introduction is delivered much better than the other back-to-the past novels i’ve read. It really evoked emotions of humanity’s last breath…

    I love the intro…. It’s a “really well done chapter” that I’ve already added it in my list…
    I can’t help but agree with the comments above… Especially about the emotions being portrayed in this kind of scene..

    Looks promising. Hope it doesn’t turn into another harem/power fantasy like TDG or that one with the zombies.

    I do worry about their choice though. They really should have sent a leader type. Someone with a lot of charisma, a great brain, and an in-depth knowledge of the identities and motivations of humanity’s greatest geniuses and the locations of the resources necessary to make them shine. Also a deep knowledge of which enemies needed to die when and how to avoid those that couldn’t feasibly be killed would be very useful.

    Sending a demoralized introvert is a serious gamble. Especially if they can’t just use the crystal again.

      To be fair, sending humanities greatest genius back is better than just someone who knows them, yeah? At least, that’s the impression given here.

        I got the impression that they were sending back humanity’s greatest warrior, not its greatest genius. But yeah, he’s not a bad choice, just not necessarily the best one.

          you took the word genius to mean extraordinary intellect that might not be the case a genius warrior but fails in rudimentary mathematics is still plausible. that being said i still agree with you that they should have sent the guy with above average intellect to gather and train his friends.

            They did not know how much they can go back into the past. 5 years? 10 years?
            If it too short sending the leader type will not improve anything.
            In this chapter Eres even think if Hansoo have at least another 5 years exp he can fight off the dragon himeself too.
            That why they send Hansoo perhaps.

              no they sent him back because of his ability. even though he can only learn 7 skills his mastery is much faster then theirs thus they sent him back to master his skills again. i too agree with you that they dont know how far they gets sent back but with hansoo’s ability power they might be able to change something.

    I made the story a bit more readable. The story will get more complicated and it’s hard to read from now.

    If you are lazy, you will die.
