Lord of the Mysteries序列的戰爭 (old) • 诡秘之主 (new)

With the rising tide of steam power and machinery, who can come close to being a Beyonder? Shrouded in the fog of history and darkness, who or what is the lurking evil that murmurs into our ears?

Waking up to be faced with a string of mysteries, Zhou Mingrui finds himself reincarnated as Klein Moretti in an alternate Victorian era world where he sees a world filled with machinery, cannons, dreadnoughts, airships, difference machines, as well as Potions, Divination, Hexes, Tarot Cards, Sealed Artifacts…

The Light continues to shine but mystery has never gone far. Follow Klein as he finds himself entangled with the Churches of the world — both orthodox and unorthodox — while he slowly develops newfound powers thanks to the Beyonder potions.

Like the corresponding tarot card, The Fool, which is numbered 0 — a number of unlimited potential — this is the legend of «The Fool». Collapse

    I just finished reading this absolute masterpice. For some reason I thought that it was longer and was extremely surprised when it ended. It was the main thing I was doing in my free time for the last 3 months. What do I do now? How do I live with myself?
    If anyone can recommend me something to fill the void, please do.

    Windvally — Today at 3:04 PM
    Cuttlefish has uploaded the "Afterwords" for Ember Ad Infinitum at 7:00 PM Beijing Time today, May 19th, 2022.

    The Next web novel that he will be writing is confirmed to be <Lord of the Mysteries 2>

    And the release date is also confirmed to be: March 4, 2023 a.k.a. Klein Moretti's birthday

    That solidifies the waiting time at: 10 months

    In the mean time, he will be updating miscellaneous content related to either EAI or LOTM on his Wechat account, and I will be following it close in case something interesting and LOTM-related pops up.

    Cheers~ (`д´)ゝ

    from the LOTM discord today!!

    I would appreciate it if you would read this full note
    Warning - This is not a review - Spoilers ahead
    First of all, LOTM remains one of best in my book list, and believe me I have read books like Cradle by Will Wight, Sword of Kaigan by ML Wang, and others.
    Anyway I am writing this note not to express the greatness of this novel, but to put my Hypothesis and some other things mentioned by author regarding LOTM 2 and LOTM 3.
    First let's start with LOTM 2, now I know that most of you might have already read author's notes but I want to discuss them and add something more of my own.
    LOTM 2- will be mostly centerd around Tarot Club members and a new MC who might choose Hunter pathway (probably?).
    We will see growth of every Tarot Club member to at least sequence 1 or probably/hopefully to sequence 0.
    New MC will be mostly adventuring around the world (sea and land—mostly Eastern Continent), and through him we will get to learn more mysteries regarding—Original Creator, Western Continent, and Outer Deities.
    And now that Evernight goddess has access to her sefirot River of Eternal Darkness, we should except another above the sequence beyonder as 'She' has already accomodated the uniqueness of other two pathways (Death, Twilight Giant).
    Tarot Club members will be trying various methods to wake Klein from his slumber and we would also get to see Klein's dreams from time to time as 'He' fights against the remanent will of previous LOTM.
    And just like author said, Mother goddess of Depravity will be getting a mythical grade upgrade.
    And I think this might related to original creator, like 'she' got some part of 'his' 'body' or some kind of beyonder artefact related to Original creator.
    Although there is possibly of Ancient Sun God advancing to Above the sequence (not pseudo but true), I have a feeling that something unexpected might happen in the form of True/Fallen Creator.
    And hopefully we will get to see Melissa by the end as an angel or God of Fool Pathway succeeding her 'brother', I mean it should be possible for Klein to completely change her sequence (Paragon).
    This is it for LOTM 2, now onto LOTM 3.
    LOTM 3- will once again have Klein as it's main character or several others but hopefully not some entirely new MC.
    As author has mentioned LOTM 3 will mostly deal with Western Continent and Apocalypse.
    First let's talk about western continent.
    As author has mentioned, people there only have sequence pathways upto sequence 2 and unlike seven churches (8 now), western continent will have sect based system.
    Author's words: Western Continent will have Orthodox Sect system with the Sefirot as the core; And the Alternative/Demonic/Freelancer sect system that uses the 9 through 2 beyonder characteristics as the basics and foundation; And the Lower/Third Grade "Normie" Sect system who has to use a mixture of Sefirot and Beyonder Characteristics to level themselves.
    The Sefirot as Orthodox Sect is inspired by Daoism's concept of "Ordained", and created following that line of thinking. Mmmh, "Ordained" means if you are recognized by the "Heaven Palace" (Sefirot), you will become a part of this system, and you can happily summon "Servant God" to help you fight. For those who aren't ordained by a divine realm, when they want to summon "Servant Gods", why would these summons even give a f#ck about you? So this create a "class separation" between the ordained and the un-ordained. Those who are "ordained" are basically "within the political system" per se. After that, if I change the "Heavenly Palace" and "Sacred Land" in Cultivation genre into Sefirot. Tada ~ the whole setting of this cultivation-ish world becomes eerily mysterious and lively.
    It's kinda ironic that Western Continent will have sect based system and Eastern Continent has churches.
    Anyway, another mentioned by author is that people will not be using potions to advance. how? I don't know!
    As far as I can think, in LOTM 3 Klein might possibly accommodate another sefirot in which 'his' predecessor proved unsuccessful.
    But this is just a guess it might not happen.
    As for the Apocalypse, author hasn't discussed much about it, but we can guess how it will be to some extent.
    The Gods of Earth will fight against outer Gods.
    Important events that might happen-
    •Original creator's resurrection (probably in Mother Goddess of Depravity)
    •Another Above the sequence beyonder might rise
    •God's Dying on both sides.
    •God Almighty's resurrection (probably in True Creator/Adam)
    •AND, Klein finally getting a partner at the End (probably, Audrey or Amanises— I can't think of anyone other these two)
    And Probably, Benson's daughter becoming a beyonder blushed (just kidding middle )

      Good theory, but for beyonders like Alger they have a ceiling due to SEQ 0 existence, and I don’t think they’re gonna die out so easily.

      Melisa as an angel, Klein's companion, and the accommodation of another sefirot seems me as improbable because this isn't an XIO novel where everything happens exactly as the MC wishes.

      And Western continent will contain plenty of jades and young masters 🤣 😂

        While your point is correct and this is not some third rate Chinese novel with everything going according to MC's wishes but I still think that there is a chance of Klein accommodating more than 1 sefirot, why? Because 'his' predecessor, previous LOTM and God Almighty tried to and I don't think they would do something foolish that will result in their own death, so they must have a contingency plan otherwise LOTM wouldn't have sealed other 7 sefirot's in western continent, surely he was hoping that after reviving completely he will once again try to accommodate another sefirot but too bad, Evernight goddess f***ed his plans up.

          I don't think they choose to accommodate another sefiriot by choice because when the original creator/oldest one awoke, he created an embodiment of attraction that reaped some sefiriot and pathway characteristics from outer deities and attracted them to Earth to create a balance, and LOM, GA as embodiments of their pathway groups and different personalities of the original creator/oldest one that were on Earth at the time may be attracted to other sefiriot without their consent.

            Actually they did, during the First Epoch Both LOTM and God Almighty acquired additional sefirot but to the "Law of Convergence" 'they' were both attracted towards one another leading to the War In which both 'died'.
            As for why I believe that it's possible to accommodate another sefirot is because of Outer Deities, as 'they' came to earth to acquire additional sefirot or retain their lost characteristics.
            So, there is a possibility, but only a possibility.

    It's been months since I finished this but nothing seemed to fill the void so... so I did the most unthinkable thing a 'webnovel' reader can do... I read published novels.

    Try reading something like 'The Stormlight Archives' if u cant find anything to fill the void

    SO what now? I just finish it and like people said everything seem mediocre now. Even RI that I used to rate 9/10 is like 7 now. I used to think that MC traveling different world are amazing but now i learn that it is just a way that those author hide their incompetence in further exploring that world and creating better character development of side characters. Damn the second volume of this story happen in one single f#cking city, and he didn't even went everywhere on it, just the east side and yet the plot is so much better that other MC traveling different Cities, Countries, World and even f#cking higher Dimension.

    It seems Legendary Mechanic has almost same quality as this? maybe I'll try that.
    Pls share your opinion without spoiling Legendary Mechanics or other novel with almost same quality or else i'm going back playing those mobile game instead of wasting time reading boring novels.
