Moore: More or less poor translation. The word used is 灵气, where 灵 is spirit, or, to be more precise, spiritual. And 气(qi) is, well, what we know is qi. This word is the same word used in all other novels for spiritual qi. In Chinese direct translation would be "spirit gas", hence all the talk about gas substance. Now let's get closer to the topic and look at where the Reiki comes from. Japanese for reiki is 霊気 , which is at the same time traditional Chinese for lingqi ((灵气/霊気) spiritual qi). Reiki is actually a term used in western regions for Japanese medical practice (loan word) and machine translate software sometimes translates 灵气 as Reiki.
In a nutshell: translator uses Japanese to translate Chinese.

I totally agree. Although this novel has many downsides, it does has a few good parts to it. And, no doubt, this chapter deserves some praise for the MC characterization. View More

I made a comment on the matter of cultivation knowledge. But no matter if i am right or wrong, it wasn't with the intention to invalidate your argument. It is obvious that i didn't phrase my thought correctly.

Leonardo_Ferrazza: It's either just bad maths or a bad translation from the chinese li to miles(I don't know the translators previews works to be sure). A chinese li is approximately 0.3 miles, which would equal to a 90 mile journey. A normal earth horse can mantain a trot(around 8-9mph) for about 15 miles with walk breaks, still not enough for the journey, but let's just assume this new world horses can mantain a gallop(25-30mph) for a few hours, this way they could do the 90 miles in under 6 hours. Still not near enough for 300 miles, that would be a nonstop run of 50mph(approximately the max speed of a normal horse), Earth horses can't mantain that for even 2 miles.

daoist1324: The translator should use the word bloom instead of base. It is confusing.
I think that the translator choice of words until now is not helping this story in the least.

Here is a video showing how it would be in more ancient times than the feudal system. But there wouldn't be too much differences. https://youtu.be/F3rjjpuhCLI?t=975
As i said before i am only speaking of the general process not if the author knows what he talks about or not, or if he even described it correctly. View More

Demontank: Yes but also no. I can make no claim to being an expert on the subject and Wrought iron and even a small amount of steal is made by heating and hitting it to remove the carbon content. The author almost purely emphasizes hitting the ingot and then when it physically refuses to bend even after reheating, hitting it harder. This will indeed make an incredibly hard bit of metal, but that piece of metal will probably be so fucking brittle. More is not always better. There is no such thing as metal being worked 100 times being better than metal worked 80 times every time. If you aren't using modern methods to gauge the actual makeup of the metal then It's about experience to understand the state of the metal. you can't get that in a month no matter how "talented" you are and more so if you are only hitting one piece of metal. What the author has done here is crossed the Japanese anime garbage of "fold steel a hundred times to make the sharpest blade" with a videogames make 1 iron dagger a thousands times to master making even the sturdiest adamantium armor.

I think you misunderstood.
The hammering and heating several times is not to remove the carbon content. It is to remove the impurities. After the ore has been smelted and the slag was taken away, there will be still many impurities of various types. After all they are annex to a iron mine and should be using their own minerals to do the smiting.

I know that the MC said something about removing the carbon, but even he said that he wasn't sure about it.

I am not claiming that this novel doesn't have many failings.
I am claiming that the process is very real and normal in ancient smiths. Just google for hammerscales. The more the hammering the more they have iron in them which make them magnetic and facilitate the archaeological work. View More

daoist1324: This novel has many things that i find confusing but these last ones do not really deserve such a beating as seen on the comments. So i will have to do the devils advocate for this part :)
First hammering and heating repeatedly the iron to remove the impurities is a true thing. They didn't have a shop where they could by their already purified iron. The residues of the process are called hammerscale and are used extensively in archaeology to identify iron smithies.
As for him learning to forge, the goal is not to learn the weight or lenght of a sword but to learn to control his strength and body by doing an activity where he has to use great strength and concentration. Preferably a different activity from the usual knight training.
And i am sure he wants to do many things different from what he is doing now, but he is just a kid and has to obey his adoptive father.
He must have practically no time or opportunity to do anything more. But everything will come to him if he has a little patience. Not like he can just ignore everything and everybody and do whatever he wants being 12 years old or did he already got to 13 by now?

JORM: The King: Leader of the Feudal System

The King was in complete control under the feudal system (at least nominally). He owned all the land in the country and decided to whom he would lease land. He therefore typically allowed tenants he could trust to lease land from him. However, before they were given any land they had to swear an oath of fealty to the King at all times. The men who leased land from the King were known as Barons, they were wealthy, powerful and had complete control of the land they leased from the King.

Barons: Executors of the Feudal System

Barons leased land from the King that was known as a manor. They were known as the Lord of the Manor and were in complete control of this land. They established their own system of justice, minted their own money and set their own taxes. In return for the land they had been given by the King, the Barons had to serve on the royal council, pay rent and provide the King with Knights for military service when he demanded it. They also had to provide lodging and food for the King and his court when they travelled around his realm. The Barons kept as much of their land as they wished for their own use, then divided the rest among their Knights. Barons were very rich.

Knights

Knights were given land by a Baron in return for military service when demanded by the King. They also had to protect the Baron and his family, as well as the Manor, from attack. The Knights kept as much of the land as they wished for their own personal use and distributed the rest to villeins (serfs). Although not as rich as the Barons, Knights were quite wealthy.

Villeins

Villeins, sometimes known as serfs, were given land by Knights. They had to provide the Knight with free labour, food and service whenever it was demanded. Villeins had no rights. They were not allowed to leave the Manor and had to ask their Lord’s permission before they could marry. Villeins were poor.

I assume that they probably know already. It is not like they are a noble family that has just bought they way in. In all those generations there must be many more 'secret' info that they have been aware.
The ignorant here is not the family. It is the MC that has just begun his path in 'cultivation' and must learn things over time. View More

Might this be some chinese concept and the problem is us seeing this by our 'western' definitions?
But if it is the translator did a very poor job. After all this translation is mainly for us 'english based' to read not chinese. At least i didn't see any notes about it...
And i don't talk about other cultures that have systems even more different. They would also need some kind of explanation wouldn't they? View More

JORM: Change royalty to nobility (unless it’s intentional and a fundamental part of the history)


Royalty: Royalty refers to the people who are members of the royal family.

Nobility: Nobility can simply be understood as aristocracy.

The people who are considered as noble belong to the highest class and have hereditary titles.

I are not wrong in your assumption, but various typical techniques and strategies are already appearing in the practice of MMA. So it does tend to go on similar path to a normal martial art. Although it is still very new, chaotic and nearer to a sport than a martial art. View More

Kupkake: Correct me if am wrong but isnt MMA not one specific martial arts. But all martial arts that fall under the rule-set of MMA which is quite a lot.
