Volume 16 – Marriage – Chapter 60 – The New Craftsman God
Translated by: Pumpkin

Crimson clouds covered the sky. The Spiritual Treasure Tribulation Lightning descended.
The news of the birth of a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure was practically something without the need to be spread as all those who knew about the time when the Craftsman God Chehou Yuan crafted a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure understood that…
Another first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure had been born in the Divine Realm.
“First-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure? It’s at the Floating Snow City!” Inside the Thunder Punishment City, Zhou Xian looked in the direction of the Floating Snow City in the distance. His gaze was extremely complicated. “Could, could it be that Qin Yu…”
The matter was extremely simple. Other than the Craftsman God Chehou Yuan who had disappeared, there were only three other grandmaster artifact craftsmen in the Divine Realm. Among them, Duanmu Feng and Ou Yezi were already in the Thunder Punishment City.
The only possibilities for the craftsman of this new first-rate Grandmsit Spiritual Treasure were either Qin Yu or the missing Chehou Yuan reappearing.
Regardless of whether it was Chehou Yuan or Qin Yu who crafted it, the significance was not great. That was because Qin Yu was the new master of the Bewitching God Temple and thus could also be considered as the successor of Chehou Yuan. Even if it was Chehou Yuan who crafted it, it would likely be that he had crafted it for Qin Yu.
“Imperial Father.” Zhou Xian looked to Zhou Huo beside him.
Zhou Huo had a complicated expression. He said in a low voice. “You stay here. I’ll go to Floating Snow City and see what’s going on.”
“Yes, Imperial Father.” All Zhou Xian could do was to continue to persist in his heart. Without reaching the final moment, he refused to give up. And at this moment, the two grandmaster artifact craftsmen who were still inside the space maintained by Zhou Huo currently did not know what had occurred in the outside world.
Being inside Zhou Huo’s space, the two of them could not see what had occurred in the Divine Realm at all.
In addition to the Northwest Sage Emperor Zhou Huo, the Utmost East Sage Emperor Huangfu Yu, the Asura Godking, the Utmost South Sage Emperor… all the experts were rushing towards Floating Snow City.
A first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure was capable of moving the hearts of all the Godkings in the Divine Realm.
At this moment, the Utmost Northern Region’s Floating Snow City had become the location where the most of the Godkings had gathered. Over half of the entire Divine Realm’s Godkings had gathered here.
Inside the Wood Mansion.
“That scepter?” Right after Jiang Fan walked over, his gaze was fixed upon the scepter in the air. Qin Yu extended his hand and then the scepter flew back into it.
Jiang Fan looked at Qin Yu. He displayed a smile on his face. “Qin Yu, that scepter is the new first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure?”
“Precisely.” Qin Yu slightly nodded.
Qin Yu still had a pretty decent impression of Jiang Fan. After all, back in the Utmost North Sage Emperor’s Palace, Jiang Fan had supported him. Especially last time, Jiang Fan had explicitly stood behind Qin Yu.
“Who was it that crafted this first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure?” Jiang Fan immediately asked. Jiang Fan naturally knew about the relationship between Qin Yu and Chehou Yuan. He was still thinking in his heart that perhaps Chehou Yuan might’ve helped Qin Yu.
Jiang Lan laughed and said. “This scepter is something that Little Yu personally crafted.”
“Oh?” The eyes that Jiang Fan looked at Qin Yu with immediately started shining.
A new Craftsman God!
Qin Yu’s status in Jiang Fan’s heart had instantly taken a huge leap upward. Jiang Fan’s glance that landed on Jiang Li who stood beside Qin Yu with a slightly uneasy expression.
“Oh, Li’er, you’re also here? It seemed that you’re already familiar with Qin Yu.” Jiang Fan said with a smile. The current Jiang Fan wished even greater for Qin Yu to become his son-in-law.
To have a new Craftsman God become his son-in-law, oh how wonderful a thing this would be.
What does a new Craftsman God signify? It signified that his Utmost North Floating Snow City might obtain new first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasures. Although it required a sufficient number of materials, sufficient amount of Grandmist Spiritual energy and Qin Yu to be in his peak condition when crafting; although satisfying all three of these requirements was extremely hard, it was still possible, right?
“Uncle, Second Uncle.” A purple gowned young man walked in.
It was the third Godking of the Floating Snow City, Jiang Xing. As a second generation of the Jiang Clan, for Jiang Xing to be able to become a Godking, his talent and willpower were both extremely astonishing.
“Earlier, I saw that the crimson cloud had covered the sky and then the Spiritual Treasure Tribulation Lighting descending upon my Floating Snow City, I started to continuously think that, in the Floating Snow City, there is no one else other than Brother Qin Yu who would be capable of crafting a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure.” Jiang Xing had grown extremely enthusiastic. Although he was a grand Godking, he still addressed Qin Yu as ‘Brother Qin Yu.’
In the Divine Realm, practically all the Godkings would address a Craftsman God with the same status as themselves and treat him with courtesy.
That was because all the Godkings wanted to obtain a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure.
Those who possessed one already wished for another. As for those who doesn’t have any, they naturally wanted to obtain one even more. Thus, one could easily imagine the status a Craftsman God possessed. Ever since the Craftsman God Chehou Yuan disappeared, many Godkings had fallen into despair. The birth of a new Craftsman God had once again brought hope to many Godkings.
If they were to possess a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure, then they would become a top notch existence amongst the numerous Godkings.
After all… the majority of the Godkings were all only at the temporal law’s first stage, Time Acceleration. There was a small portion of the Godkings who did not even possess the slightest comprehension of the temporal laws.
There was only a single person, the Asura Godking!
He managed to comprehend the second stage of the of the temporal laws, Time Stop! It was precisely because of this that all he became the publicly accepted number one Godking.
Back then, even though he didn’t possess a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure, merely by relying on his remarkable ability of Time Stop, he already no longer feared the Eight Great Sage Emperors. After he obtained a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure, even the Eight Great Sage Emperors were no match for him anymore.
“Haha, today is truly bustling with noise and excitement.” Jiang Lan suddenly started laughing.
Jiang Fan and Jiang Xing also started smiling. Jiang Fan looked to Jiang Lan. “Second brother, all those Godkings are outside. Do you plan to allow them to come in?”
“Everyone, come on in.” Laughed Jiang Lan in a clear voice.
Those Godkings were relatively considerate for Jiang Lan. Jiang Lan’s strength… was rumored to be a bit stronger than even Jiang Fan. The most important aspect was, the Gauze Feather Blade that Jiang Fan had just obtained was already given to Jiang Lan.
After all, it was already sufficient enough for him to possess a single first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure.
Jiang Fan had given the Gauze Feather Blade to Jiang Lan firstly in hopes of their relationship easing up a bit and secondly to increase the strength of the Utmost Northern Region’s Floating Snow City.
“Haha, I am truly envious of Brother Jiang Fan.” Following a loud laughter, a middle aged man with long scarlet hair walked in. It was the Utmost West Sage Emperor from Mount Blazing Flame.
Behind the Utmost West Sage Emperor was another person. This person also had long scarlet hair. It was extremely clear that this person was another Godking from Mount Blazing Flame.
“Oh Qin Yu, back when you were in my Utmost Eastern Region’s Mount Dazzling Gold, you did not take out a single first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure. After you’ve come to the Floating Snow City, you’ve just gifted Brother Jiang Fan a Gauze Feather Blade and you’ve even managed to craft a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure yourself now. Sigh, this is truly causing me to feel envy.” The Utmost East Sage Emperor Huangfu Yu stepped over from the middle of the air.
Behind Huangfu Yu were two other people.
The Hundred Flowers Godking Huangfu Liuxiang and the Gold Sword Godking Huangfu Lei. The two of them slightly smiled to the various people present. After that, their gazes were gathered upon Qin Yu.
“Qin Yu, you’ve truly become more and more amazing. I knew that my eyesight was pretty good.” Following a gentle voice, That seductive Blood Demon Queen walked over.
Qin Yu could only squeeze out a slight smile.
“Oh Heavens, isn’t this a bit too many Godkings?” Qin Yu felt terrified.
Of the Divine Realm’s Eight Great Sacred Lands, the Three Great Godkings from Mount Dazzling Gold, that were related with Qin Yu, had all come. As for the other places, generally two Godkings have come. Only the Thunder Punishment City had a single Godking, Zhou Huo.
Perhaps the Thunder Punishment City also knew that after they have competed with Qin Yu for so long, Qin Yu would not have a favorable impression of them.
Other than the Eight Great Sacred Lands, numerous Godkings from the Three Great Ascender Powers had also come. The gazes that these Godkings had as they looked at Qin Yu were incomparably blazing with passion.
“Qin Yu? Do you still recognize me?” A gray clothed man asked Qin Yu while smiling.
Qin Yu naturally recognized this man. This gray clothed man was precisely the gray clothed man who had taken Hou Fei away back then. At this moment, this gray clothed man had followed the Asura Godking here.
“I am the Heaven Pacifying Godking of the Asura Sea. Back when I first met you, I’d never expected you to be the successor of Chehou Yuan. In a blink of an eye, you’ve become this powerful already.” Said this gray clothed man with a smile.
The entire Wood Mansion was extremely noisy. There were over twenty Godkings gathered here. Back when they were at the Utmost North Sage Emperor’s Palace, the Godkings were seated above Qin Yu. At that moment, they rarely bothered to take note of the people below.
Yet at this moment…
Each and every Godking were beaming with smiles toward Qin Yu. All of their attitudes had become extremely good.
“Grandmaster artifact craftsman and Craftsman God, although the difference between those two titles is merely a single step, the statuses they bring about differ greatly.” Seeing this scene, Qin Yu exclaimed in his heart.
This was very normal. Grandmaster artifact craftsmen were capable of at the most crafting High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifacts and second-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasures after expending a large number of materials. To Godking level experts, second-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasures did not possess that much allure.
However, the Craftsman Gods were completely different.
A person would only be qualified to become a Craftsman God once they are able to craft a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure. Who among this group of people didn’t wish to obtain a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure?
With this many Godkings gathered, a magnificent banquet ended up being held in the guest hall of the Wood Mansion. The participants of this banquet, other than Qin Yu, the rest of them were all Godkings. Even Jiang Li was not a participant in this banquet.
There were a total of twenty four seats in the guest hall.
Among them, seventeen seats belonged to the Eight Great Families. The other six seats belonged to the Three Great Ascender Powers. As for the final seat, that was Qin Yu’s.
On the banquet, Qin Yu became the main focus of everyone present.
“Qin Yu.” The Asura Godking smiled as he held his wine cup toward Qin Yu from afar. Qin Yu immediately also held his wine cup up. The Asura Godking continued. “The scene when Brother Chehou crafted a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure for me is still vivid within my mind. Never would I have expected that today, Brother Chehou’s successor, Qin Yu, your attainments in artifact craftsmanship have already reached Brother Chehou’s level. You’ve become the new Craftsman God, I believe that if Brother Chehou were to know about this, he would definitely be incomparably happy. Oh, that’s right, Qin Yu, do you know where Brother Chehou is currently at?”
After the Asura Godking said those words, the entire guest hall grew completely quiet.
The whereabouts of Chehou Yuan was a secret of the Divine Realm. After all, not even Godkings were capable of finding out Chehou Yuan’s whereabouts.
If even the Godkings didn’t know, how could Qin Yu possibly know?
“Senior Chehou pursued wholeheartedly the apex of artifact craftsmanship. In order to obtain the highest achievement in artifact crafting, in order to craft an ‘Exalted Celestial’s Spiritual Treasure,’ Senior Chehou has long since departed from the Bewitching God Temple. As for his whereabouts, I too do not know about them.” Qin Yu said honestly.
“To craft an Exalted Celestial’s Spiritual Treasure?”
The Godkings present all looked to each other. They were all deeply shocked. If Chehou Yuan truly managed to craft an Exalted Celestial’s Spiritual Treasure, then it would be a frightening matter.
“Brother Chehou seeking for the limit of artifact crafting is definitely honorable and respectable. For this, a toast.” The Asura Godking drank his cup of wine with a smile.
This atmosphere of banquet was nevertheless very harmonious.
None of them mentioned anything like asking Qin Yu to help them craft first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasures. However, all of the Godkings, while remaining calm and collected, were drawing closer their relationship with Qin Yu. All of their attitude toward Qin Yu were all extremely good.
Qin Yu was also coping with all this on the surface.
However, Qin Yu knew very well in his heart that the reason why all those Godkings that were previously proud and aloof now treated him with such courtesy, was because he crafted a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure.
“Only through possessing strength will one be able to gain respect.” Qin Yu thought in his heart.
After the banquet was over, the various Godkings all knew of the general idea of what had happened this time around. Thus, they all enthusiastically bid their farewell with Qin Yu and left one by one.
“Qin Yu, to be honest, I truly wish that you would fail your groom search.” When the Utmost East Sage Emperor bid his farewell with Qin Yu, he smiled and said those words to him.
Qin Yu could only smile bitterly.
He already managed to guess what the Utmost East Sage Emperor’s following words are.
“If you were to fail, then it would be extremely likely for you to become my son-in-law. However, from the way it seems now, the possibility of you failing is very low low. I am truly envious of that Jiang Fan. Look, see how happily he is laughing.” Huangfu Yu pointed at Jiang Fan who stood not far away.
Qin Yu could only smile.
“Your Majesty Sage Emperor, even if I were to become the son-in-law of the Utmost Northern Region’s Floating Snow City, I am still Mount Dazzling Gold’s Misty Mystic Palace’s Palace Master. If in the future Your Majesty has anything that you need my help with, I, Qin Yu, would definitely not refuse.” Qin Yu said at once.
The Utmost East Sage Emperor slightly nodded. “With those words you said, I am completely reassured. Well then, I’ll be going back. Let’s meet again at the Utmost North Sage Emperor’s Palace.”
Utmost North Sage Emperor’s Palace?
Qin Yu understood in his heart that the next time they meet would be the date of the judgement for the third chosen candidate spot.
“I have already steadily obtained this third chosen candidate spot.” Qin Yu thought in his heart. It would truly be strange if he doesn’t win with a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure. Moreover…
Who among those Godkings present didn’t want to have a better relationship with Qin Yu?
It was likely that the several Godkings that had helped Zhou Xian in the previous judgement were all regretting their decisions now. After all, how could the benefits from the Thunder Punishment City possibly match up against the assistance of a Craftsman God?
And if they were to offend a Craftsman God, oh how much effort would be required to remove that estrangement?
Becoming an enemy of a Craftsman God? Only those who had problems with their heads would enemy themselves with a Craftsman God.
“There’s still a long time till the third chosen candidate spot’s judgement. In this period of time, I’ll go and gather some precious materials and craft some more Grandmist Spiritual Treasures with the Grandmist Spiritual Energy.” Qin Yu had made this decision in an instant.
[TL: IET had explicitly stated that the Blood Demon King/Monarch is now the Blood Demon Queen. So I’ll go back and change all the rest accordingly. I left the first chapter where she show up as Blood Demon King because Qin Yu was confused about her gender at the beginning.]
