Author‘s conclusion of vol.3’
Volume III is called Traveller, so the style I preseted is relaxing, the structure is also uncomplicated. Just as I said , travel around, enjoy the scenery, meet various people, involved in some things, but not very deep involved.
Frankly speaking, content resemble travel is still somewhat difficult to write. Just after hardly shape a character. glance over a place,with a sense of their custom and peculiarity, you have to leave, and continue a journey. Space limits, a huge challenge is how to introduce and shape impressive, interesting characters, while triggering some funny events.
Thinking back, before klein's advancement, I surely did a good job :). After that, I was busy with concluding the storylines, there were too many things to write, and were basically what I had written before. Since many had been already written before, I omitted some of them for granted. It may seem a bit rushed now.
A lot of people say that my outline is very detailed but TBH, its not. I have detailed settings. The outline is often what this theme is, what structure should be used, which lines be pulled in front, what new foreshadoes can I set, which suspense to be unfolded and where should it be...and then, play freely. At the end of an arc, I want to outline the next story. So prepare hundreds of or even thousands of words of content in advance, where you must think about each plot within it, is not only wasting time, but also Very Dull, because you didn't really write it out, you can't know how the story is going, how to pick it up later, and there will always be new inspirations during the writing process.
Just like when I wrote a story about the end of Klein’s departure from Backlund, there occured a picture adout Final Return with the undercurrent around and the finishing touch,and the reserved show up of the Brother and Sister .At the same time, when I was arranging the outline, there already existed an annotation about the world in the book, .but there is no more specific. After that, when I wrote about releasing the "nightmare", inspired by the content of Klein’s taking his daughter a message, I had another inspiration presenting the End Of A Trip. When writing about Grossel's Travels and setting the specific characters in the book, I got a Loen soldier, and suddenly had the inspiration for homesickness, and then, I was very clear about the whole part of volume III.
The third part is flat, which is determined by its structure and reserved style. I also said it in advance that, my friends who hope for a big event at the end, may be a bit disappointed. As I just said, I would end up with a sense of a dark and turbulent crisis. All events, including the appearance of Ince, the murder of Mother Tree of Desire and the attack of the Rose School of Thought. Those plots tighten the reader's emotions and set off the picture of Klein's returning to Backlund.
Umm, the two difficulties in the Volume III, one is that the front part , travel style is difficult to write, another is to write two dungeons, the battlefield of the gods and the world inside a book, which is quite a test for me.
According to the experience of writing The Sage Who Transcended Samsara, I have fixed the two points ， Suspense and Companion，and with the experience before and during writing this arc, I also fixed the point of Fun, but I always feel that it is still worse.
Later, I remembered that when I was chatting with Douzi(a chinese WN writer as well), I found that the creative methods of the two of us were different. I wanted to tell such a story and a world view first. Then, I will finalize several main characters based on the story and background, others are slowly added later. He must first think about having such interesting people, and then to finalize the encounters of these people,they travel together, they generate entanglement, and what kind of stories will arise.

123White: 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

Randompasserby: Ooohhh this chapter makes me itchy to pull up excel and just start cataloguing all the Pathway and interchangeability with all the hypothesised factors like Power, Knowledge and Mental Foundation...
Or to be more accurate, to pray for help from others more capable and less busy lol.

UnrivaledSolicitor: Dang, Klein proving once again why he ain’t like these basic MCs. Where all other basic-bish MCs would instantly take this chance of payback without hesitation, Klein’s just chillin. He’ll leave this grudge at low boil, creating the most delicious and nutritious retaliation stew. I look forward to consuming this sumptuous meal. 🤤🤤🤤Lord of the Mysteries · C645
ResidentialPsycho: Nina, the new ecchi character, is perplexed by Gehrman not staring at her assets. Laughing so hard. He's a gentleman tempered by a freaky tree monster and all sorts of demonesses! He won't give in that easily.Lord of the Mysteries · C640
UnrivaledSolicitor: Yaaaassssss. The World and The Hermit traveling the seven seas together. Bonnie and Clyde of the Beyonder world! Except without the sexual ******* and Romeo and Juliet ending. So hyped for the future battle scenes involving them. Especially cuz we haven’t seen what Mystery Pryer can do at sequence 8 and up. Man, I don’t even know if there’s been another named Mystery Pryer besides Catt and old Neil.Lord of the Mysteries · C635
Amathyn: I love the amount of detail that goes into even the smallest of things.
Like his simple arrival at an island leading to a conspiracy against him.Lord of the Mysteries · C630
hfitri: My eyes narrow instinctively after reading the last paragraph. Gasp..Klein is the true target not the admiral..Lord of the Mysteries · C630
Surely_Panda: Again, that escalated quickly. If Klein still claim his sequence is not known for physical toughness he deserve a smack on the back of the head. He literally got both of his eyeballs obliterated. The fact that he is still together enough to escape rather than twitching and screaming on the floor is batman level tough.
Also, nice to see Klein use a less seen ability.Lord of the Mysteries · C628
Randompasserby: Fvcking bastaaaardss. Whoever did this and whatever for they did, fuuucckkkk them all.
They're just normal people, none of them deserved any of this.
Damn I wouldn't be able to last long as a beyonder in that world. Would've lost control at so many points just raging/depairing even if I somehow miraculously survived the numerous disasters as Klein did.Lord of the Mysteries · C628
