Original novel in Chinese by: 御我(Yu Wo)


Chapter One: The Night the Choice was Made—translated by Trespasserby (proofread by Arcedemius and elisa; C/E edited by Amgine & lucathia)

A man was sitting at a large, black office desk. With a head of ashen hair, he was visibly getting on in years but was still handsome in poise and visage.

There were two rows of tables and chairs before him, with many computers on each table. Several charts and reports related to the current year’s operations were hanging on the surrounding walls. This was clearly an office or meeting room, and the man was sitting in the seat undoubtedly intended for the most important person.

But for now, this place was empty. The expression on the man’s face was also not that of a bold executive. He only stared ahead with a blank gaze, as if waiting for something.

At that moment, the enormous, carved hardwood doors slowly opened.

The man had had these doors specially built. Otherwise, in this age when electronic equipment was everywhere else, automatic doors were the most basic of installations. Even ordinary households didn’t have wooden doors that had to be opened manually anymore.

In the past, these doors were the man’s prized possessions. But now, the way that they slowly opened made his heart catch in his throat. He would rather have an electronic door before him, where one push of a button would cause it to instantaneously open and allow him to immediately confront the visitor. That would be far better than watching the door slowly, slowly open; far better than hoping “it might not be him” when he clearly knew who was behind the door.

A foot was set down. With exceedingly graceful footsteps, that person entered the room while showing a consistently perfect amount of hauteur. It was commanding but not aggressive, nor was it insufferable. A handsome face, a slender figure, and a perpetual gracefulness—Ri Xiang Yan1 was practically as dazzling as the sun.

Everyone always had praise for him, especially when this man like the sun began participating in his father’s business—the Sun Alliance. He led the business in a rapid expansion, causing everyone within the alliance to sing his praises even more.

Seeing this dazzling young man, even though they were facing off against each other, the man at the office desk could not help but feel a surge of pride. This was his son, his own flesh and blood, the king of suns he had created with his own hands!

Eclipse Hunter Volume 1: Brothers

Original novel in Chinese by: 御我(Yu Wo)


Prologue—translated by Trespasserby (proofread by Arcedemius; C/E edited by lucathia)

In the year 2105, countries had fallen into decline. The Earth was split into several hundred economic organizations, and these several hundred economic organizations forged economic alliances for each other’s benefit. Among these was the Sun Alliance, which controlled thirty percent of the global economy, thus becoming the largest alliance in the world.

The Sun Alliance’s leader had so much power that he was widely acknowledged as the world’s uncrowned emperor.

Truth be told, several years ago, the Sun Alliance had only barely risen to being one of the top five economic alliances, but under their new leader’s control, its power increased at a startling rate, expanding and expanding…

It wasn’t that no alliance had thought of quashing this rapidly growing alliance, but that the leader seemed to be able to predict their moves ahead of time. Several times, just before a crisis could strike, the competitor would be preemptively dealt with. It wasn’t just that they were focusing on a few dangers while neglecting others. All those scheming against the Sun Alliance would find at the critical moment that someone had also been scheming against them. Every person would furiously shout that they only had one step left to defeat the Sun Alliance… But against all expectations, they had been defeated before that final step could be taken.

One time. Two times. Every time it was the same. Everyone finally understood that this wasn’t coincidence, it wasn’t divine will—it was “his” control over everything!

Every person who had previously opposed him swore to never do so again.

People said that everything was under his grasp. No scheme or plot could be concealed from him.

His existence in the world was like that of a god’s.

He was undefeatable.

Everyone gave this legendary figure the title—

Sun Emperor.

 

“However, there is often an exceedingly simple origin behind every great legend.”

No Hero Volume 6: Heaven or Hell

Original Novel written by: 御我 (Yu Wo)


Heaven or Hell, Tenth Level: Sunset City, The Curtain Falls for Tonight and the Next Morning Shall Arrive—translated by Trespasserby (proofread by Lala Su; C/E edited by lucathia)

What kind of chaotic situation is this? What are those criminals doing running all around the business district? Don’t tell me it’s to steal the computers in the offices? Has the economy gotten that bad?

First Wind let out a groan. “Solitary Butterfly, the police just reported that the Sun Emperor was seized.”

The Sun Emperor was seized? Then we don’t have to head over, right?

“Why? Do you hate the Sun Emperor?”

It’s not that! The Sun Emperor should have a lot of bodyguards and personnel who’ll come save him. He’s the Sun Emperor! Do we really have to go?

“That makes sense! We…”

Duck! You idiot, pay attention to your surroundings. If you lost your head, then you wouldn’t even have to think about whether or not to head over to take a look.

Dragon Peace growled, “First Wind, Solitary Butterfly, the criminals have all run into the building where the Sun Emperor is being held!”

Damn it! What are they all meeting up there for? An incident isn’t about to happen where the Sun Emperor is, right? Let’s go look!

“Yeah!”

I understand now. They wanted to lure us all here and shut us in with the Sun Emperor and An Xiang Ye so they could do whatever they wanted!

I want to change my vote to Father Alex, damn it!

Heaven or Hell, Eighth Level: Sewers, A Stifled Voice—translated by Trespasserby (proofread by elisa; C/E edited by lucathia)

“Solitary Butterfly, Dark Sun has been in a bad mood recently. Don’t start any fights with him.”

… You’re making it sound like I spend all day trying to pick fights with him. What’s he unhappy about this time?

“Aiya, you have a menstrual cycle, he also has a modification… going haywire cycle! Please don’t fight with him. Arguing with Dark Sun currently is completely pointless!”

I get it… How is there another robbery? What’s been going on lately? There’s been a ton of robberies! Dealing with robbers armed to the teeth is such a pain. Good thing this case is by both our boundaries. Do you want to go or should I?”

“What about Dragon Peace?”

He just went to deal with a robbery in the southern district! Don’t pick on him just because you know him!”

“Rock, paper…”

“Scissors.”

Scissors.

“Hmph… I’ll head over now.”

Translators Needed!

posted in: Updates | 8

Bored now that summer’s started and you have all the time in the world on your hands? Want to see all of Yu Wo’s snappy remarks early? Want to work on your translation and wordplay? Love what we do here… To the point that you might even consider trying it yourself?

PR! has your next summer project!

We’re looking for potential translators to help us out! We’re always looking for translators, but particularly so at the moment. As some of you may have noticed, the rate of our translations has been dropping for a while now. If you’re interested in helping out, try out the translator application and send it to english@princerevolution.org. But don’t worry, taking the test itself isn’t a commitment. After you pass, you can confirm if you still want to work with us, or maybe just for a single chapter.

Hope you’ll be joining us!

(P.S. One site I like using is https://mandarinspot.com/annotate for pinyin pronunciations and definitions when you hover over the word. Maybe it’ll help you too.)
