Chapter 49 – Fallen God

Gordon got off his wagon .

It was incomprehensible .  He knew that Chesswood was a beautiful village .

“What is all this…?”

The settlers he picked up also looked around in bewilderment . This wasn’t the Chesswood that they had decided to move to .  The area was burned to the ground and in ruins .  There were bodies all over the place . The father covered his children’s eyes and sent them back to the luggage compartment with his wife .

“Oh my god . What is going on…?”

“It is like it seems . ” 

The father’s attitude had become cautious ever since he witnessed Gordon killing the attackers . He asked, “I’m sorry but… Can you take us a little further?”

They had decided to settle on Dandelion Village, but they had relatives living in the other villages of Chesswood .  However, there were ruins everywhere . It was so confusing that they didn’t even know how to respond . First, they had to go to the other villages in Chesswood to figure out what was going on .

“What the hell is going on…?”

“Wait a bit . ”

Gordon’s ears heard something, his keen senses picking up the noise of a battlefield in the distance .  His eyes were cold . It was in the direction of Edelweiss Village in the center of Chesswood .  Gordon placed a hand on the hilt of his sword .


The father became nervous about Gordon’s sword . Gordon raised both hands and laughed .

“Haha . Please wait here . I will go ahead and see what is going on . If there is an incident…”


“Don’t worry . I will just go and see the situation . ” Gordon untied one of the four horses pulling the wagon . After putting on a saddle, he got on the horse .  “Rest in the wagon . I’ll be back quickly . ”

“Yes . Thank you . ”

Gordon moved .  First of all, he headed to an inn located on the outskirts of Azalea Village .  It was where Rachel was, but her inn had already been razed into the ground . Among the broken buildings, unidentified bodies were scattered .


She wasn’t his lover .  They were closer than friends, but it wasn’t an intimate relationship .  However, he couldn’t see that bright smile anymore .

Gordon continued onwards . His keen hearing continued to grasp the noise of the distant battlefield . He kicked the horse and started running again .  He passed Chrysanthemum Village beyond Dandelion Village . It was also in ruins .

Beyond Chrysanthemum Village was Myrtle Village .  All ruins .

Then he witnessed the fighting of the army that was trying to penetrate Edelweiss . War . It was a mess of death and killing .  Gordon saw the white stars on the foreheads of the invaders and was able to understand everything .

Gordon’s finger stroked the handle of his sword .  They didn’t know anything .  He got off his horse and tied it up in a safe place .  The horse was scared by the noise from the battlefield . He swept the horse’s man away and placed his forehead against its brow .

“Wait here quietly . I’ll be back . ”

The horse looked at Gordon, who in turn tapped its cheek .

“Don’t worry . ”

Then he headed to the front lines .  The residents of Elder Lord were fleeing from the users .  Gordon approached a user and stabbed him in the neck . No one noticed Gordon’s presence .  The user gradually changed into white particles .

“But I’ve realized . I had already found the things I was looking for…”

He suddenly heard a song .  Gordon raised his head . He discovered a man holding a spear .  The man was bloody all over as he blocked the users . He smiled when he saw the residents running away . As if he was the patron saint of this place, he stopped the enemies .

The man continued singing . Gordon realized that the man was determined to die . He had the eyes of a person who had abandoned life .  A lot of things must’ve happened in order for a human to neglect living .  Nobody could judge the stories that must be woven around that man .

The invaders here wouldn’t have consideration for such things .  Gordon cut down users as he walked over to the man . He noticed the enemy behind him . Gordon’s blade pierced the user’s neck .


“You can’t see it…”

Gordon’s blade was like light itself .  However, there was still a thick line between him and the man with the spear . Despite Gordon’s efforts, the man was stabbed in the abdomen .

The song that he was singing stopped .  What were the lyrics was he trying to sing?

Another life experienced an irreversible death .  It was a sad day .  Gordon looked up at the sky .

If a child pulled the trigger, it wasn’t the fault of the child, but the fault of the adult . The adult who placed the gun in the child’s hand, without explaining anything . He could understand it in his head .

But what about the child’s punishment? The bullet fired from the gun had taken someone’s life .

Gordon wielded his sword .  A dazzling darkness covered the battlefield .

The front line was broken .  The surrounding area had been cut in the shape of a fan .

A massacre committed by a cold soldier .  The battlefield became quiet . Gordon walked steadily . Now all eyes on the battlefield were looking at Gordon . Their faces were shocked, like they didn’t understand what had happened .

Some strong players blocked Gordon .  They were breathing nervously and seemed tense as they spoke to each other .

“Appearing suddenly like this . What is your name and class?”

“Where did this guy…”

The strongest person among them spoke, “Pincer attack . Do it slowly . ”

“Yes Brother . ”

“Brother is a ranker as well . We can win . ”

The fiver users, including the ranker, surrounded Gordon . Every one of them seemed to have a high level .  Gordon laughed .  Then he wielded his sword again .

The world stopped .  His blade moved slowly, but the opponents failed to avoid it . This moment seemed to last forever to the enemy . Gordon’s sword broke the laws of the world and swept over the enemies .  It was a sword that cut the space and converged on the enemy .

Slowly . Carefully .  The blade met skin .  Five heads simultaneously flew through the air .


The moment the fifth head was completely separated from the body, the world returned to its original state .  Fountains of blood rose from five necks at the same time .

Everyone was shocked .  The ranker and powerhouses that they were so proud of had fallen at the same time . They couldn’t even see what had happened . The bodies turned into white particles .  Gordon went forward . The enemies retreated .

The brand on their forehead was stinging . The brand whispered to him .



That desolate voice .  Gordon smiled as he killed another person .

It was unfair .  They didn’t know anything about the curse of the stars as they casually went around committing terrible sins . He would stab their ignorant selves with this sword .



Crockta ran towards the northeast front . It was Blackmore’s battlefield .

In the other battlefields, armed forces had appeared like a miracle and created victory . However, Blackmore’s battlefield was the only one where they received news that the residents were retreating . Crockta achieved the first victory and headed to the northeast front .


But the only thing visible was bodies .  Both allies and enemies were dead .  There was only one person standing .


Crockta approached him .  The man had his head bowed while covered in blood and flesh .  Crockta’s heart pounded .  He felt an unknown feeling without knowing why . It felt like he was familiar with this person .

The man raised his head .


The man met Crockta’s gaze .

“You?” Crockta asked . The man’s eyes widened slightly and he scrutinized Crockta . He stopped at the bandana covering Crockta’s forehead .

The man asked a question instead of answering, “What is your name?”

Crockta realized that this man was the one who killed all the enemies here . He was able to tell just by meeting the man’s eyes .

“Crockta . ”


The man looked at the sky again .  He seemed to be thinking about something .  Then he laughed .  “I can never know this world . ”


“How long has it been since you started Elder Lord?”


This was the first time that Crockta realized that the man was a user . Crockta watched him with wide eyes . The man was still smiling .  “Around three months…”

“What about this place?”

“Not even five days . ”

“Did you…”

Suddenly, Crockta saw a familiar face behind the man .  Blackmore, now a cold body lying in the middle of the battlefield . Crockta rushed over .


His abdomen was pierced, but his face looked serene . There was an unknown smile on his face .


His heart was pained . No matter what he used to be, Crockta thought of him as a man who loved both his songs and his hometown . He was a minstrel who admired Crockta’s song and recorded his inspiration .

“You are sad because he is dead,” the man said from behind . “Even though he is a NPC?”

Crockta turned to him . The man wasn’t laughing or ridiculing him . He had a lonely smile on his face .  Crockta replied, “Any death on the battlefield is sad . ”


Crockta was well aware of this .  Whether they were an enemy or ally, all deaths caused sadness in someone .

He saw the residents and orcs running over in the distance . The battle seemed to be completely finished . Ingram and Jeremy’s face also appeared . All of them had won .  Only Blackmore remained here as a cold body .

It would have been nice if he had lived to the end . Together, they could sing and celebrate the victory . It was also possible to create new songs together . Crockta suppressed his sorrow and got up .

The man said, “Crockta, listen . ”


“There is the Temple of the Fallen God in the north . ”

What was he saying? Crockta looked at the man . The man still had an unknown smile on his face .

“If all these deaths are truly sad…” He turned around .  “Go to the Temple of the Fallen God . ”


Crockta tried to grab him but he was already walking away .


The space seemed to fold and he suddenly appeared in a distant place . Crockta gazed grimly after him .  He didn’t even know the man’s name .

“Temple of the Fallen God…?” Crockta muttered .  But there was no time to think about it any further . Jeremy and Ingram were running towards Crockta .

“Brother! You’re safe!” Jeremy stood beside Crockta and fell silent as he discovered Blackmore’s body .


Ingram walked up to Blackmore . He kneeled down and stroked Blackmore’s cheeks with wet eyes .  His hands rose to cover his eyes .  Blackmore and countless other residents had died . Everybody grabbed the body of someone they knew and sobbed uncontrollably . The battlefield, Chesswood was filled with grief .

It was a sad war .  They had won the war, but the sorrow was all theirs .
