Chapter 196: Exitus:TheForthcoming Of The End
It was also quite a hot topic for discussion in his previous world.
Many readers also thought that the world described in the book might be alternate Earth as most of the author does and though it gained momentum but it died down as this wasn’t a much-sought topic, after all, no matter how much they procrastinated, they can’t know about it.
Even after coming to this world, due to curiosity, Lucas looked for the book but there was no mention of the name of the world
So, Lucas thought this world may not have a general name most people refer to it as the world in general terms.
‘Wait! What does the name of the world have to do with the question I asked?’
“Is there a secret about the name of the world?”Lucas asked unable to understand the context.
Fredrick nodded and spoke” Yeah!”
“The name of the world is Exitus which means it is on the verge of destruction.”
“The forthcoming of the end.”
“This world had been in chaos and on the verge of destruction and the laws of this world were weakening by each passing day that’s why it is known as Exitus on the verge of end.”
“The God’s don’t want it to spread around so it was stopped from spreading.”
Lucas’s eyebrows furrowed on hearing the name and a deep frown appear on his face.
‘This world is ending. What kind of shit is this? That means by coincidence or other means I was reincarnated into the world only to die again with this world.’
“Fredrick, how did you know about it?” Lucas asked though he had a hint that this knowledge might have come from the spear.
“Sorry, Lucas that I can’t say.”
“Okay, I understand,” Lucas spoke making an understanding expression and spoke, “Still, I don’t understand why this world is named like this.”
“Previously our world was ruled by many Goddesses. Unlike now, there were many Churches and devotees followers and many of them harnessed the power of Faith.” Fredrick explained.
“Power of Faith.” Lucas’s eyebrows furrowed on hearing quite a term.
“Is it similar to the one which The Saintess used in the fight near Aler Fortress?”
Fredrick nodded and spoke”Yes.”
“Listen, Lucas what I am about to say next is secret. Unless mentioned, you can’t speak to anyone about it. Do you understand?” Fredrick asked Lucas looking straight into his eyes.
“Only people with higher authority knew about it or those who reached the peak of power.”
Lucas swallowed his saliva and looking around for the coffee, took a sip of it as if he was preparing himself to hear an epic story.
Fredrick paused for a moment and after taking a long and deep breath started to narrate.
“Have you ever wondered what is beyond 9-Star?”
“I mean you must have thought that beyond 9-Star is 10-Star which is quite simple but what is beyond that or is there any realm beyond that?”Fredrick spoke with a serious expression.
Lucas’s attention was drawn to it as he also wanted to know about what was beyond it.
“10-Star powerhouse is still strong and a single movement from them can shake the world but their powers are still within the limit of humans. To break through into the realm after 10-Star, you have to transcendent the limit of humans, you have to overcome the limitation of the human body and after doing it you will step into the realm of Transcendence.”
Lucas’s eyeball widened and glowed for a moment and he felt a sense of excitation welling within him and he asked Fredrick”So, Transcendence is the top powerhouse of this world.”
“No!” Fredrick replied with a stoic expression which almost made Lucas fall.
‘What, there are even realms more above it. Is this world made up of a low-level cultivation world?’Lucas muttered and prayed sincerely in his heart that this world shouldn’t have a higher plane like the cultivation world after all he doesn’t want to reach a higher rank only to know there is a higher plane above it.
“Okay! So what’s next.”Lucas asked with brimming curiosity.”
“After that, the realm is known as Demi-God,” Fredrick spoke.
“I don’t know why but I am not surprised to hear this term and after it, the realm will be known as God realm,” Lucas spoke nonchalantly.
“Yeah!” Fredrick nodded his head but he suddenly stopped and looked at Lucas with an uncanny gaze and asked”How did you know about it?”
“I guessed, it’s easy.” Lucas with a bitter smile.
“So, that means God realm is the true powerhouse and is similar to those Gods and Goddess up there,” Lucas spoke and pointed his finger up at the sky.
“No!” Fredrick spoke again shattering Lucas’s belief.
Lucas blinked a couple of times and looked at Fredrick with a questioning gaze.
“It’s because no one had been able to reach that stage till now. The maximum level the people of ancient times had reached was the Demi-God level.” Fredrick replied.
“Ohhhhh!” Lucas made an understanding look and asked”Is God’s realm really difficult to reach even for them.”
“It’s not about difficulty, it’s about clearing the requirement, “Fredrick spoke and started to explain.
“As I mentioned about the power of faith. The Saintess and all other warriors of the Church derive their power from the power of faith and harness it into different forms coupling it with mana.”
“The Church can be seen as a middle man for Goddess, they spread their name far and wide making others succumb to their belief and ask them to worship God’s and Goddess and in exchange, they are provided with the power of faith.”
“Now, you might be wondering about what the talks of Power of Faith had got to do with realms.”
“One can reach the realm of Demi-God by his strength and relying on his skills but if you wanted to break through to the realm of God, you needed to create your faith, your own belief and have your own set of followers so that you can slowly accumulate the Power of Faith in your body and breakthrough to God realm.”
“But if a human breaks through to God rank in a literal sense wouldn’t God become a joke. Since they hoard most of the believers, it was difficult for others to do it and most of the warriors were in one way or another believers in a certain God. So, in the end, no one could reach it.”
“Since God didn’t want a mortal to achieve godhood, they would warn their followers to stop spreading his faith and if anyone of their believers helped them then they would be cursed.”
“So, Fredrick the people that appeared behind you were all either Demi-God or Transcendence powerhouse and you might have got their inheritance. ” Lucas asked though he knew everything.
“Yes, something like that. I will tell you about it when a suitable time comes “Fredrick spoke.
Lucas nodded and thought about which realm his future self might have reached.
” So, where were we? Yeah, we were talking about God’s realm.”
“Limiting, humans to the Demi-God realm also gave a huge blow not only to the Goddess but also to this world and this world was about to get destroyed.” Fredrick.
Lucas didn’t interrupt Fredrick and asked him to continue.
“God’s have a severe limitation. They can’t leave their plane which is specifically made for God and Goddes and they can only manifest themselves in others but even after that they can’t use their full power in their avatars.”
“You can think of it’s a restriction of the world laws on God. And that’s also one of the reasons, they fear mortals achieving God’s ranks cause unlike them a mortal with God’s rank isn’t bound by the restrictions.”
“Our world was going normally until one day, we got a visitor from another world, which was not friendly in any sense,” Fredrick spoke with a sorrowful expression.
“The invaders who wanted to occupy this world and use it as fuel to progress their race not, in fact, their leaders”
“What kind of race or species were they? Were they like us humans or were they something different.”Lucas asked with interest.
” I don’t know what or how they were and I only knew the story?”Fredrick replied to Lucas’s query.
“That era simply changed the life of this world from top to bottom.”
“All the warriors of the human race and all other races united under one banner and fought with them till the end of the ropes.”
“Even till the bitter end, we fought with all our might. Even the God and Goddess sent their avatars to help us in the fight but don’t think that they were helping us out of sympathy. It’s because they knew that once we are defeated, the God and Goddess were going to be their next target.”
“Many Demi-God powerhouses fell and the world was dyed in red due to the war. God tried their best to help as much as they can but except for easing the situation a little bit it was nothing worthwhile.”
“Seeing the situation turning out of hand, the God and Goddess finally decided to shake away their interest and decided to give a part of their power of faith to help the mortals achieve the God realm.”
“Each God and Goddess chose their suitable candidate irrespective of the gender and grant them thier powers bit.”
“But still they didn’t trust humans after all what will happen if after winning the war, the people revolt and try to usurp their position. So, they only helped to reach False God’s realm which was enough to defeat the invaders.”
“The strength of False God realms wasn’t much different from Demi-God except they can harness and accumulate the power of faith in a small pseudo vessel.”
