BlessedOfAmon: Now this novel in China just comes to the end of volume 5, and the author said that this novel would end with 8 volumes. In China, this novel has ranked 1st in Qidian for several months, which is almost record-breaking. However, due to its western, cthulu background setting, it is nearly impossible for this novel to be adapted in China, because it is not a popular theme. Our author recognized this fact before he started writting this book, and several friends tried to peruade him not to write this book because it would be less profitable than xianxia theme. But the author insisted to do so, he hoped to write real interesting novels regardless of the payoff.Lord of the Mysteries · C732
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

Surely_Panda: I wonder if Azik ever look back and compare the real Klein with the current one and thought "he was such a nice and well behaved boy back then." Now he is chaos incarnate.Lord of the Mysteries · C729
Aby55: Seriously! Wow! From the belly of a beast to a reef thru the spirit world with Miss Reinette to a trip thru the spirit world with Azik! All in a few pages!Lord of the Mysteries · C729
ResidentialPsycho: So we've got the Mother Tree of Desire's underlings, Reinette, Jahn Kottman and his church bros, the creature summoned by the whistle from the Numinous Episcopate, and whatever horrible things that got lured by the glove corrupted by the True Creator all duking it out on Bayam. What a mess!
Azik managed to avoid that chaos and instead served as delivery personnel for Klein. Meanwhile, Klein sure used a lost a bunch of items, huh? It's impressive those things had use. I forgot about some of them since they were mentioned so long ago.Lord of the Mysteries · C729
SickBlad: Kottman watching Klein :
ok he’s hiding under a book...
He threw a glove at us...
Now he threw a whistle...
wtf? How did that summon 2 more angels!?!?!Lord of the Mysteries · C729
Damick: He does not really pray, he's is only acostumed to certain habits related to the goddess. The same way people say "oh my god!", "jesus christ!" or "bless you!" even if they are atheists. It is but a habit. The only way for gods to lock into someone praying is if said person says the god's honoric nameLord of the Mysteries · C722

CelineXD: It appears Klein and Edwina are going well😏. They won't merely exchange pleasantries tomorrow. Instead, they can talk about history, charm, and even rumors, until they find close to each other😝. Then they are not only companions to go through life and death, but also soul mate to share thoughts and knowledges.
Poor Danitz, lose the girl and become a loyal servant of the rival🤔.Lord of the Mysteries · C705
headlimit: How come no one want to comment on how mobet and siatas mouth curls upward when they realize not only theyre both dying but in their last moment,they both decide to reach for each other in the few seconds they have left to be in each other's embrace/touch.and the whole time,read, centuries/milleniums they spent 'hating' each other's gut inside the book because of the difference in time and faith.they may actually had grown to fall in love with each other but never get to express it this whole time only confirming bout each other feeling with the last few breath they had left,hence the blissful smile.an arrogant royalty and a prideful elf,a love across epoch and time.FAK THE FEEL.Lord of the Mysteries · C702
