    When Arran decides to become a mage, he quickly discovers that magic can be more dangerous than he had ever imagined. Soon, he finds himself hunted for powers he never knew he had. Helped by a mysterious mage with secret motives, he sets off on a journey to escape his enemies. But where will he run? And can he trust his helper? Pursued by mages and monsters alike, he knows there is only one true road to safety: to become stronger than his enemies! ——— Paragon of Destruction is classic fantasy with strong xianxia/xuanhuan influences, lots of action, and a variety of characters from different backgrounds. Release schedule: 1 chapter/day. Content advisory: strong violence, strong language, and some sexual content.

It was my stepfather, actually. My grandfather is still hanging on for now, though it probably won't last much longer.
So yeah, 2020 isn't great, so far. View More

OvumAureum: Could it have been your grandfather? Man thats sad...
Hope you get well soon

A quick update on the lack of chapters these past few days:

I just found out this week that my grandfather has terminal cancer, so I've been preoccupied with things other than writing for the past few days.

I'll try to get back to posting daily chapters from today on, though.

I hope you all understand. View More

slaev: so lemme get this straight, if someone with the ability of seeing - but doesnt have the ability to create them the same way the lords do - at least one of these possible attacks and preparing to defend the possible real one, the Lord can basically change his real attack and strike the enemy where he isn't expecting? cause if thats so, then holy **** this is OP

Wragged: Even with how far Arran has come and how much he has learned, I get the feeling that his true opponent has yet to reveal themself and is far beyond anyone he has met yet. By the end of the story, being the patriarch of a valley will sound like a nice relaxing retirement plan.

Thanks, fixed it! It's odd, how I can check it half a dozen times, and still not notice that an entire word is missing. View More

rrandomm: Missing word?
"there was a noticeable change in the mood of their small group after Rannoc's." --> "Rannoc's offer"? "Rannoc's words"?

Pexis: I think Rannoc doesnt know it was the mercenaries that killed his niece, so it increases the ******* between the 2 lords, and imperium being more attractive was explained before, something about them being more accepting of commoners than the mages (or at least the appearance, since ppl outside have no info about how their society works)

I'm actually a bit of a medieval weapons enthusiast, but sometimes reality just doesn't work that well for fiction.

In reality, a 7-pound Zweihänder is about the biggest weapon you'd see, and even that would be used more like a polearm than a sword.

But in a story like this, where dragons and magic are real, oversized swords that weigh hundreds of pounds have a place.

At least, for me they do. View More

laandra: While your story is great and I enjoy it alot. I think that you should put a bit more research in medibal weapons and how they were used and what for.
I recomend watching a few youtube videos on the subject if you have the time. I lnow Shadiversity has a few interesting videos on problems with giant swords used by super powerful individuals.

Poleaxes (or pollaxes) can have any combination of hammer/spike, axe/hammer, or axe/hammer.

The difference with a halberd is that a halberd has a larger and flatter axe head, with the entire head usually made from a single piece of metal. By contrast, poleaxes are generally made from interlocking pieces of metal, with a denser construction.

The main difference is one of role. The halberd is an infantry weapon intended to be used against lightly armored and unarmored opponents, while the poleaxe is a knightly weapon intended to be used against armored opponents.

Here's a 15th century poleaxe with an axe head and spike:

And here's a halberd from the same era:

LallarLeo: Author, I belive your description of a poleaxe is more simmilar to a halberd. Poleaxes usually have an axe head with a hammer head on the opposite side. Other than that, love the story.

Gentleman613: More than 300 chapters in, I'm enjoying this book as much as before. Arran has made strides on the path to power, knows where he wants to go, and is not a psycopath. The various powerful beings he's encountered really add to the mythos of the world he's in, though we've only encountered a church recently. The apocalyptic scenes he's experienced makes me wonder if and how his world will be destroyed, and if he's the answer to it somehow. I guess we'll find out, because this author has a plan.

Grutte Pier s a pretty cool historical figure.

Somewhere around 1515, a mercenary band in the employ of the Habsburgs burned down his farm and murdered his wife.

In response, he spent the next 5 years waging war against the Habsburgs' allies, razing several cities and sinking dozens of ships.

Supposedly, he was seven feet tall, wielding a seven-foot sword with which he could behead multiple enemies at once.

And according to legend, he was strong enough to carry horses, and once beat five armed enemies to death with a plow. View More

Daemonspectra: Oh, didnt know about that.

He's already focusing on Body Refinement.

Remember, with the Blood Ruin/Dragon's Ruin, he absorbs Natural Essence extremely well. And there's a ton of that in the giant digger meat.

And I don't think it's much of a spoiler to say that he's not going to ignore the Forms, either. View More

JPNovelFan: Let me ask you a question in return. Why would you give him tools to be unrivaled amongst everyone he could face if you aren’t going to have him use those tools to be stronger? If he wasn’t pressed for time, sure no complaints. But you’ve set up this upcoming dire war and instead of having him actually become proficient in what he has, you’ve just adding something else to his toolbox. If you need a screwdriver for a screwdriver’s job, then use a screwdriver. He says he needs to be stronger when he isn’t facing multiple enemies? Then why not have him focus on body refinement to solve that issue. Not use a weapon that doesn’t even make sense.

Paragon of Destruction · C341

Why do you think that adding a second weapon will stop him from continuing his training? View More

JPNovelFan: Yes, war against small and fast humans=let’s get a giant weapon meant to face large beasts.

Oh, my strength when I am not powered by slaughtering many foes is weak. Yes, a giant weapon for large beasts will solve the fact that I am weak when I am not powered slaughter.

Spending time cultivating my body to instead be stronger in the normal state? No! A weapon meant to slay large beasts is what I need!

I might have to kill a lord in the future, someone vastly stronger and more nimble and quicker than myself? A weapon meant to slay large beasts is what I need. Screw cultivating my body further?

I’ve seen knights use insights inside their bodies. Oh, I DEFINITELY can’t use that to think about how to do it because I instead need a weapon meant for large beasts.

Living star metal sword that I haven’t even completely connected with that refuses repeatedly to be in any shape other than a sword? Let’s make a weapon for slaying large beasts!

Cmon mr author. You can’t be this ignorant to you ideas and what you’re writing, right? Like does any of this make any sense?

It's not that he forgot, it's that it's one of his overarching goals in the Imperium. This was just a small chance of a potential shortcut, which unfortunately did not pan out. But he arrived in the Imperium only recently, so it stands to reason that there will be more opportunities. View More

JPNovelFan: Glad that you think so. It worries me that you potentially forgot about that when you had him list his goals and it wasn’t included. His own fear/instinct that facing the Lord should still be deeply ingrained in him. You’d think that fear/instinct of a powerful foe would drive him to not forget something like being able to learn their techniques. Seeing him casually forget to mention that, is all that caused me to worry. Glad you at least recognize the importance as well haha.

I'd say you're on the right track here. It's information he can't really afford to neglect. Now, whether he actually succeeds in getting it remains to be seen, but I don't think it's something he'd lightly leave behind. View More

JPNovelFan: I think he would be disappointed. I mean, if he wants to truly be able to beat them with the power of the Valley, he himself is going to need considerably more power than he already has. To do this in the short term, I would imagine he’d also need their techniques. This is also crucial battle tactic information because their techniques may be able to explain a flaw in their system or a weakness that the mages can exploit to gain an advantage in the war. If he left without any information like that, it could be detrimental to actually being able to win the war. Don’t you think? I mean, you’re the author but like... cmon. How else are we going to get an Arran that is powerful enough to face a lord with his current strength? They’re basically impervious to magic so he’s going to need their techniques don’t you agree?

No spoilers, but... do you think Arran would be satisfied leaving the Imperium before he found their methods? View More

JPNovelFan: Disappointed that one of the things he didn’t mention was obtaining the imperium’s training techniques. You left that out. Author, are you not going to give him their techniques? How incredibly disappointing if that’s the case.
