UnrivaledSolicitor: Damn. These past few chapters have shown just how much of a lowkey powerhouse Klein is. He be puttjng his hand in everybody’s cookie jar. Between efficiently eliminating Ince Zangwell, to stopping another Demigod from roofying Audrey, to “accidentally” becoming both a Blessed of Artificial Death and a bigshot within Numinous Episcopate, to sending a letter to his Death Consul penpal, while finishing it up by bullying another Angel right on front of his parents....like damn Klein. You did this sheet in a year and a half, like c’mon man, at least give your enemies a chance!Lord of the Mysteries · C979

gtfantasy: Author summarized volume 4 at the end and I do a translation here, bear in mind this is not a word to word one.
Undying, a blessing or a curse. This is the theme of this volume and it fits for many characters such as Azik, Anderson, Leonard etc etc, but when Klein saw those cocoons and people with modernized outfits inside, especially three of those has already broken out, author doesn’t need to emphasize the theme again at this point. The feelings of thrill, terror,suspense, craziness and darkness of this book should appear again. This is one of high impact scenes author prepared before he starts to write the novel.
The whole volume author progressively closing foreshadows including Anderson’s branch which was laid in the middle of volume 3, so at the end of this volume the plots finally exploded and echoed, he was satisfied with the result and will close some remaining foreshadows in next volume.
There were some weaknesses in volume 4 as well, as a tycoon Klein’s daily life lacks conflict, if this part drags too long it is really hard to construct interesting story, but this part can’t be omitted as well, so he was anxious before the plot progressed to Chanis gate, some readers may feel the sudden turning point here, because it lacked a bit of foreshadowing.
Another weak point was the story in this volume was a bit longer than expected, pace at the second part of this volume was the problem. There was a whole month author was not in a good status, he felt that after Klein got potion formula and Leonard dug the grave the story was lacking the *******, he tried to remedy and reconstruct the story but still not happy with the result. Later on he figured out of the reason, lacking change. In another words, after Klein leveled up in the middle of volume 3 to the middle of volume 4 there were more than 200 chapters, so it needed a change urgently. So he adjusted the story and only focused on level up and revenge, pushed everything else aside. From the stats of Qidian, the result was good but it caused other problems, for example Calderon City plot was too simple it should be more complicated.
As for author level up is not only a plot climax point but also a tool to control the story rhythm. The former is easy to understand, even in real world level up is everywhere; e.g employee gets promotion, same for businessmen and government officers. The latter is more complicated, one level up can bring man changes, so author can control the story better.
After plot reached a climax point as for author the most important thing is to calm down and only express what is necessary and get rid of harmful and superfluous staff. Author wants to make sure all the built up feelings and explosions not get interrupted and diluted. So at the end of the volume Klein as director of a grand show, author balanced the story and he didn’t want to drag in too many powerful figures that too many accidents and tensions will cause Klein fail to advance. Author also didn’t want split level up and revenge into two separate lines which will drag the story too slow, interweave Ince’s recall will help to portrait the character but not the plot at this point, so author sacrificed it as well.
Author also considered pulling Daly’s death early and building a ******* that Ince will kill everyone then escape, but he is not certain if the curtain fall will be as sad and beauty as current one, so he sacrificed a bit ******* to make sure ending will be good.
For Daly in author’s original setting, she is the one in church that chasing the Death authority, but later on author dropped this idea. Only as a talented person then there will be story to match Captain Dunn a very normal Nighthawk officer.
So this is the summary for volume 4, author wants readers to guess who is the 3rd person and next volume name is Red Priest.Lord of the Mysteries · C946
Alessan: I think he thinks that all the cocoons were pulled from earth at the same time a long time ago. Later, the people inside started gradually waking up but a very long time has passed, so even if he made it back to Earth it would have been hundreds of years later. This explains why Klein and Roselle seem to have left Earth around the same time but woke up a few hundred years apart.Lord of the Mysteries · C947
gtfantasy: At end of Vol.3 Author summarised the volume and I do a brief translation here, note this is not a word to word translation.
Volume 3’s title is “Traveller” so author writes it using a casual style, the structure is also simple, a man on his journey, stop at a place for a while then move on, see some sceneries, meet new people, complete some tasks but don’t get deeply involved.
To be honest this kind of travel style story is not easy to write, you try hard to create a new character, a new place, make some custom differences, and then you have to leave all these behind and keep on your journey. It challenges author’s writing skills to quickly introduce new characters with unique characteristic and new events that are interesting. Authors believes he did a good job before Klein advanced to Marionettist, however after that he was busy to close some story lines, too many things to write and it’s on Klein’s return way, so he omitted some details for those revisited places, author feels he rushed a bit on this part.
Many readers believing author has a very detailed outlines for the story but he doesn’t, he only made detailed settings. After he sets a theme for a volume and decides using what style to write it, what foreshadows he is going to close from previous volume and what foreshows he is going to lay in this volume, then he just fills the volume with stories freely, he doesn’t want to think every plot beforehand as he constantly has new ideas. Just like at the end of last volume the scene when Klein left Backlund, then he has the idea how he is going to return at the end of this volume, also mention his siblings in last chapter. Also he wants the book world to be introduced in this volume but he is not clear how this part of story going to end beforehand. When he writes release “Nightmare” beyonder characteristic plot he then has the idea to write a plot to pass message to the daughter, this can be also considered as a journey’s end in a way. When he designs the setting of “Groselle’s Travel” and creates a Leon solider character, then he has an inspiration to return him home. Combines everything together he is clear of how he is going to write for this volume.
Volume 3 is kind of flat because of the structure and the style. Author mentioned this before in Raw that reader may be disappointed if they want to see something big unfold at the end of this volume. He wants to create a perilous atmosphere to set off Klein’s return, this includes Ince appears scene, malicious of the Mother Tree of desire and Rose school of thought’s attack.
There is another ordeal in this volume, that’s how to write the raids of ruin of God’s war and book world. As he gained experiences from his previous books, he sets two themes for it, one is “Suspense” and another is “Comrades”, he then wants to add “interesting” on top of it, but at the end his is not completely satisfied and he should do better. He explains the thinking how he creates and writes these two raids, for this part it’s too long for me to translate. For example the book world, because it’s going to be a short story in this volume, so Klein as an outsider doesn’t have time to know those characters’ past, so he only records what they say and what they do, for this part of story you can see generally Klein has no inner monologue.
Author summarised at the end, he created some good characters and stories but rushed the last part of this volume, and he wished he can slow down a bit. The next volume is going to be called “Undying”, the opening words for this volume are “Undying, a bless or a curse”. ** the opening words for “Traveller” are “Every journey has an destination”.Lord of the Mysteries · C732

Davidwrn: Dream Stealer. A very interesting ability. I really appreciate how diversified the beyonder powers are in this novel.
The stereotype for "super powers" are always combat related abilities. You hit me, and I'll hit you harder. Those stories are very popular, hence making it effortless to write.
But to be able to make the unconventional ones truly shine are what determines an author's competence.

Baphonmet: I can think of a newspaper story about a crazy adventurer and three beautiful female pirate generals.
1. Gehrman Intruded into Rear Admiral of Ailment's room at midnight. Happened a lot of verbal and physical conflict, seemingly to break up.
2. Gehrman Stay in a room with Rear Admiral Iceberg for a long time. It's said that Rear Admiral Iceberg was reluctant to let him leave.
3.Gehrman and Pirate Admiral Star had a long journey together. Witnesses said Miss Cattleya entered his room on her own initiative, and leave dejectedly after a while.Lord of the Mysteries · C674

LOMChineseComments: Since a potion can change a male into a female, I suddenlyt had a terrifying guess. If, I'm saying if—women in the Demoness Sect first seduce men, then turn the men into demonesses to maintain the flourishing of the sect. Then, the men who later joined will turn into demoness to lure men in. If this continues, all the women in the Demoness Sect were men! Man… that's terrifying if you think about it!

WEBNOVEL_OFFICIAL: Although I am using an official account, I have to say that I'm a hugh fan of LoM! I caught up the raws and read Chinese updating every single day XD. You guys will love this wonderful story, trust me. All those slice of life chapters will be finally chained up to be a part of high light of the Vol.1.
Although Vol2 and Vol3 are still staying a super high quality, I personally love the Vol.1 as the most.
Keep it up!Lord of the Mysteries · C30
GoodWithAToaster: Klein trying to look at Nina as a bounty instead of a blonde hottie: “Her bust—I mean, bounty...her bounty is 36D...ollars. 36 dollars. Wait, did I say 36? It’s obviously much more than that. Worth many mounds...er, pounds. Worth many pounds.....soft, supple pounds....😅”
