Everyone Else is a Returnee – Chapter 129: I Invade – 5

Not long after that, Yu IlHan arrived in Venezuela. The city under the blue sky was bustling with people, and he could hear noisy chattering as well as people bargaining at shops.

He had come here in his dropout period, but ironically, it was even more strange now that he could feel life here.

“How can it be like this.”
[Oh my god. That fruit vendor, the housewife that’s purchasing goods from him, and even the vendor across the street …… They’re almost all 2nd classes.] (Liera)
[Did they carry out an investigation before invading? It’s as if they’re performing a country-wide play.] (Spiera)

There were definitely people that did not disguise themselves using human skins in Venezuela. They were probably the usual tourists. However, they were joyfully buying apples from a 2nd class fruit vendor without the slightest bit of suspicion. Meaning that they did not notice anything out of the ordinary.

Yu IlHan felt frightened while looking at that scene. His imagination had turned into half-reality. They were trying to assimilate into Earth!”

[How about language? What are they doing about language?] (Liera)
[Artifacts, it’s artifacts. How could this be…… They didn’t plan this out for just one or two days……!] (Spiera)

So such a thing was about to happen to China as well… If he couldn’t prevent that, then what would have happened… He felt a frightening shiver all over his body.

The problem was that Venezuela was now in their hands. He couldn’t even fathom how much their plans had progressed.

If there was one good thing, it was that they invaded an archipelago in the Atlantic. If they had devoured the entire South American continent, there wouldn’t be a need to invade those small islands.

Yu ilHan thought about what he had to do in order to stop this invasion. Just how could he kill these people who devoured an entire country……

…when he realized one thing.

“Wait, I can differentiate them?”
[Not because their average level is higher than the tourists?] (Liera)
“No, it’s not for such a simple reason. There are many high leveled tourists as well. I can somehow do it…… aha.”

Just as he was conversing with Liera, he succeeded in finding the answer.

“It’s because I’ve acquired their records through killing thousands of them.”

It was like that when killing dragonkin and dragons as well. Since he had killed so many of them, at some point, he knew what kind of dragon used what kind of power or what kind of weaknesses they had.
It was the same right now. Since he had killed so many of a specific world’s residents continuously, he became to understand their characteristics and now could differentiate them; as if determining a type of a monster, or determining prey.

Even if they were using a special disguise that did not use magic, they could not deceive the Akashic Record.

“So, its like that…”

Yu IlHan smiled. Now that things became like this, all the moments of hesitation were meaningless. He was the one who was going to wipe them out anyway, so it would be enough for only he himself to be able to differentiate them!

To think wiping out the invaders in the archipelago would bring such results… He thought about this from the past, but he always seemed to have quite the luck at appropriate moments.

Moreover, they asked for this as well. From now, they’ll compensate for their arrogance in deceiving the people of Earth.

[I didn’t realize that it was possible to differentiate them with the Akashic Record.] (Spiera)
[Well, we did think that they were all the same humans. And there’s not much opportunity to kill thousands of humans at once…… Oh! I don’t mean you’re bad, IlHan!] (Liera)
“It’s alright, I know.”

Yu IlHan decided to not be ruled by the extremely ambiguous concept of good and evil. He just resolved to protect himself, to be true to his heart, and resolutely trudge on the path he had set his sights on. That was also the reason he could endure a millennium of solitude.

As such, even if what he was about to do now may look very evil, Yu IlHan wouldn’t mind it so much.

“Kuaaak!”
“Kyaak!”
“What the hell is this?”
“Run….. Kahk!”

When people started dying, the market naturally fell into chaos. Everyone moved around in panic to protect themselves, and the panic of the tourists were even more.

“Wh, what the hell is this?”
“I remember this. Susanoo also used something like……”
“Fuck, the people are all dying!”

Many people escaped the place, but no one on Earth was faster than Yu IlHan. Moving around busily, he bestowed death upon all the other-worlders within his range.

“Save me!”
“Kyaak!”

When nothing else worked, they tried to mix in with the tourist group, but it was all useless. Yu IlHan’s spears killed them in pinpoint.
It took less than 0.1 seconds from the time a dragon bone spear appeared in the air to the time it killed the enemy. If they weren’t at least mid-level 3rd class, they wouldn’t even be able to react properly. 1

“Fuck!”

At that point, they realized that something was wrong. Since they were found out before they proceeded onto the next stage, disguising themselves was now meaningless.

“Clean these up first!”
“Report to the higher-ups!”

As if this was all promised beforehand, they took out weapons they hid in one part of their bodies and tried to kill the tourists.
They were quite vicious, as they were trying to erase any evidence even when they were under attack. Perhaps, they hid themselves exactly in order to do that.

“Of course, Yu IlHan had predicted that already.”

“Khaaaak!”
“Kahk!”

Although it was difficult for him to read all movements of all people in this wide area, most of it was resolved when he threw spears to whoever he saw.
Moreover, at this point, some of the tourists started noticing some things, so they tried to not move towards the residents.

“Fuck, just how can this be……!”
“Find the enemy! If rumors spread before we finish working, then it will be the end!”

All the survivors moved around busily. Some to find the enemy, some to report above, and some to escape this sudden calamity.

And one, to kill all these fuckers.

[Over a thousand died within 1 minute.] (Liera)
[It seems it isn’t a single country that is involved in this. Unless they are a great empire that has power over an entire world, this is impossible.] (Spiera)
“Let’s start moving now.”

It took two hours for Yu IlHan to clean up the capital. As he had moved while decimating the other worlders in one spot, they couldn’t even communicate with others, and were doing their duties in their own place. For Yu IlHan, this was very thankful.

He poured spears, killed the people, and collected them inside his inventory before moving. As if hammering away to make equipment, he repeated those movements.

That figure was akin to a machine rather than a human. This kind of unaesthetic and inhumane massacre was very bone-chilling.

Even Spiera, who did not care about what Yu IlHan was thinking, and only cared about Yu IlHan’s ability, became slightly uncomfortable. However, Yu IlHan did not show any change in expression and repeated his actions.

Meanwhile, the surviving people, of Earth, were trying to upload things to their SNS while escaping the tragedy caused by Yu IlHan, but unfortunately, internet was down over all of Venezuela. There was no way the SNS was working.

“It’s not working dammit! It’s an important news about Susanoo massacring the people of Venezuela!”
“Shit, I need to tell this to the people of Earth!”

Really, they should just escape underground in the time they have time to do that, but these people really were hopeless. Looking at them, Spiera nodded seriously.

[I knew SNS was a waste of life.] (Spiera)
[Hah! Good for them.] (Liera)
“Hey, something collectively happened to you angels right? I won’t laugh so please say it?”

The angels shut their mouths. Yu IlHan also gave up and continued ‘cleaning’.

[Kuaaaaaak!]
[You! Earthling! It was you!]

Whether it was monsters or humans, ‘thoughts’ weren’t left behind that often, but as Yu IlHan had killed so many, he acquired quite a lot of ‘thoughts’.

As Yu IlHan was planning to kill all the other worlders that came to Earth, he didn’t mind them that much, but after not being able to find their roots even though he had wiped out many cities of Venezuela, he stopped for a little.

“I should interrogate some people first.”

The place Yu IlHan was in currently, was the largest state of Venezuela, Bolívar. He had killed almost all the other-worlders in cities he passed by until now.

If he could not find any path connecting to another world in Venezuela, he had to go over to Guyana, Brazil, or Columbia, but really, he didn’t want to imagine such a situation.
Not only would it mean that damage had spread that far, the possibility of them surviving would become higher as well.

As such, now he needed to go to a specific place.

[Interrogate? How are you going to interrogate?] (Liera)
[Is it the power of a deathgod? I don’t think you’re a deathgod that rules and controls souls, though?] (Spiera)

Oh, so there were such deathgods as well, huh. Well, it should rather be said that a violent deathgod that burns lifeforce to make a flame was rare. Although he did learn Soul enchant from Reta Kar’iha’s mutated soul, but it was just that.

“So you do not know yet. Skills are only the crystallization of human abilities.”
[Of course we know that. Even though I look like this I lived several times lo…… [email protected]#$%] (Liera)

Liera covered her own mouth after blabbering on as if natural. However, just as Yu IlHan was about to pretend that nothing had happened, Spiera said a rather cruel line.

[Several times? Don’t you mean, tens of times?] (Spiera)
[It’s not, IT’S NOT! It really isn’t!] (Liera)

Not minding about the super-mini war between angels, Yu IlHan did his own stuff.

[We have nothing to tell you!]
[We are just a portion. The great plan is already proceeding so someone like you will not be able to stop it!]

He did not mind about whatever the thoughts said. Yu IlHan alone wouldn’t be able to do anything to them anyway. As such, he took out Eight-tailed dragon spear from his inventory and ordered.

“Orochi.”
[Kroaaaaaaar!]
“It’s meal time. First, let’s eat them all and leave 20 behind.”
[Krrrrrrrrraaaaar!]

Such was the beginning of soul interrogation.

[Don’t you think you should call that ‘preying’?] (Liera)
[So thoughts have their own world. That’s deep……] (Liera)

Some of the thoughts that came with the lifeforce had some tenacity. They, were all eaten by Orochi, and seeing that, the remainder ‘shook’ in ‘fear’ of a second death even though they were just fragments of souls, and spat out information.

Yu IlHan, with his experience of gathering important information from numerous text, picked out all related information and completed a small fragment of truth.

“So the world you came from is Ferata.”
[Ttttttttthat is so!]

With those words, Yu IlHan glanced at Liera and Spiera. The two nodded. They must be thinking about the angels working in Ferata. Of course, as they were not in contact with any angel on Earth right now, punishments would come later.

“From the time the people of Earth went over to Ferata, this was planned by the great empire Ferata Ma Kadra, and became possible after the Army of Brilliant Light contacted them.”
[Y, yeees!]
“You were careful since you could open only one gate, and focused on Venezuela and its nearby islands first since you had to take root before the people focused on Abandoned Worlds were freed.”
[Th, that is so! It has only been 3 days since the plan began operations on Earth. We have not secured any further territories than Venezuela…….! If the 2nd class knights successfully place themselves, then the 1st class soldiers would come over and will take the skins of the countries beyond Venezuela. That was the plan!]

As if asking Siri, answer was immediate. Yu IlHan laughed with a ‘fuu’ and confirmed with them for one last time.

“So, where is the dungeon located?”
[The location that will not be found out by anyone, at the same time being placed in a convenient place to acquire Venezuela and its nearby islands…… it’s an underground dungeon located in the deep Atlantic.]

Looking at Spiera, Yu IlHan smirked.

“See my future prediction?”
[…….This human is starting to get annoying……] (Spiera)

Yu IlHan invested two more hours to decimate all hidden Ferateans hiding in Venezuela and looked through all the small countries nearby, but he really couldn’t find any more of them.

Although he moved as fast as possible, Venezuela was doomed with the exception of extremely small places. Yu IlHan couldn’t save them. As such, he had to prevent the worse-case scenario.

Although he didn’t know what kind of communication methods they used to the HQ, since hours had passed since their massacre, HQ would probably send reinforcements or do something of that sort.
Nothing good would come out of them knowing that Yu IlHan had massacred them all. He had to move right now.

Well, then. This was the start.
Now was the time to wipe out their base.


Author’s notes

  1. The power of the Akashic Record!
  2. Angels are afraid of the SNS
  3. Orochi got some screentime today.
  4. Siri is the personal secretary program developed by Apple. I also have it on my IPad, but I never used it before……
  5. Mass spear throws using remote collection is mostly used when cleaning out minor mobs. Although he can use it when facing higher levelled enemies, but that’s just for support.

          The wolves needed their Princess to gain sentience, or something like that.
          So, by Ruling over her, Ilhan could ensure the wolves’ loyalty.
          So unless the Feratans also have such a system, it would be impossible to trust them.
          Well, there are probably a few of them that are worth letting alive, so Ilhan probably won’t create a new Abandon World.

          Reply
          1. Jonathan Hurd

            I think the point of the Wolf Princess is that without anyone of the Royal Bloodline none of them can ever reach 4th class. The Royal blood was needed for being blessed by the Moon and getting fourth class seems to require that blessing. So if Ericia dies it basically means the wolves are permanently stuck at Second class. Which would mean an end to their evolution and eventual destruction if any other fourth class shows up.

        2. Jonathan Hurd

          Problem is that the humans of Ferata are much less likely to submit to him. The monsters like Yumir and Ericia are safe since monsters respect power and follow the food chain. They will also especially follow those who can help them become stronger. The elves are alright since he is their savior and they really do love him.

          Problem with trying to subordinate people from Ferata is that unlike with the Elves he isn’t coming there to save their society hes coming to destroy it. The worst thing possible is not to have a strong enemy, but to have a bad ally. No reason to keep people around who hate your guts and probably will stab you in the back eventually. Easier to kill them and make an example to stop this happening again.

            exactly, people from ferata are also human but the atrocity they did to invade another planet who are also human is too much, and since they are humans and have human emotions then leaving them behind is just asking for revenge or stab in the back, these guys arent wolfs or monsters that follow a pack/leader.

      Honestly I don’t think Ilhan cares much about public opinion of him. There isn’t anyone on Earth who can oppose him currently anyways. If they found out Susanoo and Vanguard are linked They would also know hes too important to Earth to forsake because of just that.

      Reply
      1. extasse

        Or they’ll try to use that to claim both Vanguard AND Susanoo. I can imagine them saying to hand over custody of Susanoo and ask Vanguard to compensate in his stead for the losses.

        Reply
        1. Jonathan Hurd

          They can try, but you really gotta ask who is going to make that claim. The first one to make demands of Vanguard just gets his country black listed. If they try to use force there is innumerable people willing to swoop in and pick Vanguard up or worst case scenario Vanguard disappears and Earth needs to fend for itself again. Who cares about a country of people compared to weapons that can protect the entire world.

          That’s the beauty of Yu Ilhan’s position. Earth NEEDS him. He doesn’t need Earth. They can make whatever demands or claims they want, but that doesn’t have any real weight to him because he has all the things they want and need while Earth lacks anything for him. Money? Who cares. Materials? Yu Ilhan collects better materials than anyone and has maxed Disassembly. Weapons? He runs Vanguard. Strength? He is the strongest on Earth.

          Earthlings can whine and bitch about his actions all they want, but they are in a position which Yu Ilhan can has a complete upper hand. Who cares if people are angry at Susanoo. They still need him to protect Earth or its doomed.

          The other thing is looking at how that 4th class Mage that Ilhan killed behaved it doesn’t seem like its too strange for the strong to do basically whatever they want. Ilhan has more power than a Nuclear weapon at this point and is probably even more dangerous. Honestly if he wanted to just randomly kill people. He can and there isn’t anyone that could stop him.

            France got black-listed due to their rudeness. His disassembly is better than anyone else’s. A show of the “Leopard” showed the first mistake he made about human kind. And money? People sold their homes for his goods. No one can fight him, ever.

            And true, to the public, their random people. To him, their illegal immigrants from another planet that want to take over Earth, thanks to the BAoL.

        2. James

          That was already tried. It was a major bust on the “Claimers” end. Yu llHan doesn’t care because he’s learned more about politics and language that most have to stand down.

          If that doesn’t work, he can flex him muscles to make them stand down. To add insult to injury, remember those that said they’ve been “Cheated” out of Orochi’s sword and demanded that it’s to be given to them? Same situation of “F off”

      Considering the power of Ilhan’s/Vanguards friends and the fact that even now some of the Tourists suspect something is weird I think the PR situation will be fine. The situation in Venezuela is too weird that people will take Susanoo killing random people at face value. Especially when the internet has been cut off and the ‘natives’ suddenly pulled weapons out of no where and rushed them. Considering Kang MiRae’s position currently and her family connections its pretty simple to grab control of the press and explain what happened through them.

      It honestly needs to be publicized so that what happened in Venezuela never happens again. If people know to be on the alert and also how to report to people outside of their own country. Aid could be sent and an invasion can be stopped before it progresses as far as it did here.

      Reply
      1. Paps

        Exactely he is not alone any more, but he is killing every enemy and isn’t leaing any proof, so will people believe that he was actually stoping an invasion, or they will think that he is a power hunger ruthless person that killed a great number of an foreing population for the heck of it??? It will be interesting to see in wich direction the author is goign to take the populce reaction to this incident.

        Reply
        1. Jonathan Hurd

          Technically he has all the proof with him. Hes collected every single one of the bodies. So all he really has to do is bring out one of the ‘Venezuelans’ bodies and show that their skin can be peeled off. Show the sheer mass of cases like that and it becomes pretty damn clear why he killed them.

          Rumors being spread isn’t really dangerous to Yu Ilhan. Especially if he shows the truth to the world leaders because it is in everyone of Earths best interests to spread the news about what happened so that the same thing doesn’t happen to their own country. People will obviously be jealous and suspicious of Susanoo, but Susanoo is the one who has saved Earth from being destroyed twice now.

      yeah, it’s true, but since Bolivar land it’s mostly national parks and rainforest it does not have that much of a population, the highest concentration ppl in the country is in the capital (caracas, and i mean the whole state), the most annoying state to clean of would be Zulia, since it has almost twice the population as other states and are distributed in a fairly big territory in a SHIT load of towns and cities, and some of them are deep in mountains and forest, actually, im duobtful that he cleared off Venezuela that fast, since the landscape it’s very changing here, but i guess that just make him even more OP xD

    FYI “decimate” mean killing only one out of ten…
    I don’t think Yu IlHan had left 90% of the invaders alive, so you might better change the term used here…

    Reply
    1. extasse

      The dictionary says it’s a really old word and it’s used as punishment for a group (killing off 10%). I think it’s no longer used that way and now means killing a large percentage of something (10% isn’t large). It said he didn’t kill all (leaving a few lucky guys) so decimate should be the just about most appropriate term here (also sounds cooler).

      Reply
      1. Jonathan Hurd

        I think Ilhan did kill them all. He needed to make sure nobody called reinforcements or reported back to their superiors. As the chapter says Ilhan is the fastest person on Earth with speed that even impresses Angels. Hes also not one much for torture so he just leaves that part to the Orochi, :D.

        The thing with Decimate is that now it is mostly used as a kind of Synonym for Annihilate. I don’t think anyone uses it in its literal meaning of destroy 10% at this point. We all know what the chapter is saying. Ilhan destroyed all of them.

    Thanks for the chapter.
    Here a little comment about physics:

    In the following calculations, i will be ignore the air resistance (since it’s quite hard to actually incorporate it into the formula).

    I will assume, that instead of applying the actual mass to his spears, he’s applying the force the things in his Inventory would generate (given he’s close to the surface of earth). Otherwise, it is quite obvious that the description used by the author is complete crap.

    Assuming he distributes the force generated by a mass of 1000 tonnes onto one of his spears. Furthermore, let’s assume the spear has a mass about 10 kg (which is not that much or quite a lot, depending on wether you’re focused on the fact that they’re made of dragon bones, or the fact that spears used in sports seem to weigh no more than 800 gramms normall (according to the german Wiki about spear throwing)). Note that I’ll take 0.1 seconds as the time (stated in this chapter to be the time to from release until impact) Now then (attention!! lots of approximations):

    The applied Force would be F=1000T*9.81m/s^2=9.81MN
    Resulting acceleration: a=9.81MN/10kg=9.81*10^5m/s^2
    Terminal speed: v=9.81*10^5m/s^2*0.1s=9.81*10^4m/s (about 290 times the speed of sound)
    Travel Distance s= 0.5*9.81*10^5m/s^2*(0.1s)^2=4.905km
    Kinetic Energy E=0.5*10kg*(9.81*10^4m/s)^2=4.8*10^10J~Explosion Energy of 11.5 tonnes of TNT, which is about a forth of the FOAB (Father of all bombs), the strongest currently known conventional bomb (Atombombs are not conventional ones) (src: english Wiki for TNT equivalent)

    What we see is: If we interprete the authors physical nonsense in the only way (except just accepting it as fantasy, thus ignoring physical laws) which is actually logic, Yu IlHan has to drop his spears from a height of about 5 km, they will reach nearly 300 times the speed of sound, and the energy of even one spear would be enough to blow up several houses.

    Of course, I completely ignored the drag, so the results would most likely be far more normal, but the energy would not change (since we don’t change the applied force by incorporating drag), meaning that instead of being ridiculously fast, the spear would become extremly hot (conversion of potential energy into heat energy instead of kinetic energy), the air around him would probably expand as if lightning struck, and if he does that with hundreds of spears, well, he’d probably end up crippling every normal person in the vicinity (destroying their eardrums should count as crippling…).

    So even with this approach there’re still lots of things which are not logical or lack explanation. Still, I thought it would be interesting to see just what that guy is actually casually dropping around all over the place. By the way: If he uses 10 million tonnes instead of a thousend, the energy would be more or less equal to the hiroshima atombomb.

    Obviously the abov is just a very rough calculation, ignoring a lot of facts, and I hope the advanced physicists among the readers are not offended by this very simplified approach of the matter.

      Our site translates novels as closely to the author’s intent as possible, so that you guys can get the full readership experience, EVEN if it includes shitty physics and stuff. We only translate, we didn’t write this! Anyways, just factor in magic and mana and the fact that yu ilhan’s concealment allows him to break the laws of conventional physics and tada~~!

      So I gotta admit I’m not sure which fact is illogical/unexplained in the above formula. The Sonic Boom destroying peoples Ear Drums sounds bad, but that calculation would be if the people aren’t reinforced by mana like the novel has. Everyone’s bodies are significantly stronger than before the 1st Great Cataclysm. That is especially so for the 2nd classes not to mention third.

      If you are saying it doesn’t make sense to drop so many spears at the same time with that sheer power. The Author did write that Ilhan evenly splits the weight in his inventory among the spears he drops. So if he drops a hundred spears. Then each spear gets 1/100 of the Inventories weight. That is why he doesn’t use that kind of attack against stronger foes.

      If the argument is that this will destroy the battle zone then yes, but monsters have already kind of done that.

      Honestly the biggest thing we all ignore though is that the whole start of this story was because Earth itself leveled up. That means mana entered the air and world reinforcing it. Adding mana could of reinforced stuff like the Sound Barrier so that even with Ilhan’s ridiculous power it doesn’t break.

      I also have to ask why you think adding Force makes sense but adding mass doesn’t. Force is just mass times acceleration squared. So your formula there has added mass with Gravities acceleration. I do have to say I find calling something that is literally impossible to do and is only possible with magic illogical kind of funny. Honestly the point of Magic is that you can break the normal rules of physics and the world.

      What I always see people pointing out as the Authors failing is that adding Mass would not increase fall speed. My response to that has been and continues to be Air Resistance. I know it is a pain in the ass to calculate that and I also admit I do not have enough Physics expertise to make a ruling on how mass effects air resistances effects on fall speed. All I know is that yes if Earth was a void Ilhan’s attack adding mass wouldn’t mean anything. Earth however isn’t a void (thankfully).

        First, I’m sorry, since my native language is german, it seems like I couldn’t express myself well enough and was missunderstood. Honestly, the above comment was never meant to critisize the author, after all, like you correctly stated, there would be no point to bash a fantasy novel with normal physics.

        I just wanted to put in a few fun facts.

        Then about the physics:

        Destroying the eardrums was meant for the normal people (ones who don’t go out of their way to train themselves). But you are certainly right, most likely, since all of them have been physically reinforced after the secon great cataclysm, it’s very likely that there may not be any damage. But I found it fun to immagine thousends of sonic booms happening at the same time for an attack that is meant to clean up small fry (just fun to immagine, not illogical or the like, it’s fantasy after all).

        About the destruction of the battelfield, you’re absoultely right, and even I wouldn’t take that as an argument (who would critisize someone if he destroys things on a battelfield…)

        As for the force, force is indeed defined as mass times acceleration (not squared though). But that doesn’t mean you have to add mass in order to add force. For example: no matter how much force you use to throw a ball, the mass of the ball won’t change, will it? Same here: The mass in the inventory generates a force according to the laws of gravity, and within close proximity of the earth, this force is given by the “value” of the mass, and the gravitational acceleration constant g (which is only constant in close proximity to earths surface, but that’s also not a critic, since even 40 km is still pretty much considered close proximity (though it may make my little fun statement about the atombomb invalid…. would have to recalculate it… ma, it doesn’t really matter, does it)). So with the above:
        We have:
        F=a*m
        If you add m (mass) then the force of the spear will certainly change, but as the mass changes proportionally, we’ll still have a=g (gravitational acceleration constant) and there won’t be any real visible effect (meaning, that at the very most, within 0.1 secondsl, as the author stated, the spear would reach a velocity of v=g*0.1=0.981m/s which is not fast enough to not be able to dodge it (normal people walk faster than that…))
        On the other hand, if you add just the force, but leave the mass of the spear alone, it’s like you actually throw the spear. since mass stays constant, but the force becomes far bigger, the acceleration would have to becom bigger proportionally to the added force.
        But like the translator already stated, this is most likely not like the author meant it to be, so he’s right about not translating it that way. It was just my little endeavor to show, that you can acctually explain the huge velocities of IlHans spears physically, even though they would probably be even faster than stated.

        About breaking normal rules of physics and the world, yeah, you can, which is exactly why I spoke about just adding the force generated by the mass in the inventory instead of the mass itself. This already breaks the rules pleanty, since you normally can’t add such a force continiously, as you would have to move the mass with the accelerated item. All other kinds of rule breaks were at least not mentionned in the book, so I assumed there weren’t any other…

        The air resistance doesn’t really care about the mass itself. It only cares about the form of the spear, its surface area, and the velocity (actually, the velocity squared). So, what happens if you have a huge mass on a very small volume? The air resistance will stay the same, but since the force (gravitation) accelerating the mass is far bigger, we can have far higher velocities until the resistance balances out the gravitation force. BUT!!! the acceleration won’t change! in other words: The maximum acceleration of any given mass caused by gravity within earths surface area is g=9.81m/s^2. So the air resistance makes other things accelerate slower, but nothing can accelerate faster than 9.81m/s^2 without outside forces. Meaning that you can only change this acceleration by adding force (that’s why people say that adding mass doesn’t make sense: You will certainly change terminal velocity, but absolutely not the velocity at any given point in time).

        I hope this explains my somewhat… obscure… calculations. But I will add one more time: My comments, let it be this one or the first one, were never meant to be critic. I very much enjoy this novel, and in no way did I want to critisize the author. I don’t read this book to get information for my physic tests after all, but to relax. I’m actually very thankful that someone actually translates this (as I don’t speak even a single word of Korean), since it’s a great way to relax.

        I hope the misunderstandig was cleared with this: I don’t want to critisize the author, I just wanted to write about some fun facts and hope, that there are people that can laugh about it (especially about the huge amounts of energy Yu IlHan is throwing around. If earth still had energy problems (which it probably doesnt have anymore), Yu IlHan could actually solve them by his loneseome… By the way, the energy of his attacks won’t change, no matter if you add mass or force, and I thing the only the energy is already plenty to hurt quite a lot, isn’t it). I’ll appologize if someone you have taken offense, it was not my intention to critisize anyone (like you already said, using conventional logic and rules in a fantasy novel is… questionable…)

        PS: Thanks for actually reading my huge comment, I seriously doubted anyone would care about it…

    ilhan is finally close to conquering spiera route…he’s already at ‘this human is annoying’ stage…

    in a few chapters that kingdom in ferata will cease to exist…

    thanks for the chapter…

    Thanks for the chapter!
    “If he could not find any path connecting to another world in Venezuela, he had to go over to Guyana, Brazil, or Columbia” I think it should be Colombia ^_^

    Yep, that’s how all attack dogs love their owners. Give them a good meal.

    Thanks for the chapter.

    lol so Liera is at least 10,000 years old. ouch how mean of Spiera to reveal that, Yu-Ilhan has lived 1,000 years himself so i don’t think he’ll mind. i think there are other countrys in the world they came from so hell show some discression in his invasion/slaughter. kill all the military and nobles of the kingdom that invaded to serve as an example to the rest. silly nubs, doors swing both ways. an example for all worlds.

    Thanks for the chapter.

    And apologies went out to readers in Venezuela – but what about the Caribbean? Author totally eliminated every single person and island in the Caribbean archipelago (cries sorrowfully)

    Since he is jumping it would be better not to jump that high but jump forwards to improve his speed. When you jump you would make a arc, adding weight to himself would cause his forward momentum to degrade rapidly and fall much quicker. The question is how do the shields counteract the force of him moving so rapidly.

    Venezuela is in dire straits even in fiction. Damn, so it was obliterated by those Ferata assholes. Imagine being from there and on vacation someplace else, only to come back to an empty country.

    Fuerza para nuestros compañeros venezolanos 🙁
