    This was recently picked up, I know there are only 8 chapters translated so far but here's a latest discussion thread!

    Edit: This novel is known also known as Daoist Gu~
    http://www.novelupdates.com/series/daoist-gu/

    Synopsis:
    Humans are clever in tens of thousands of ways, Gu are the true refined essences of Heaven and Earth.

    The Three Temples are unrighteous, the demon is reborn.

    Former days are but an old dream, an identical name is made anew.

    A story of a time traveler who keeps on being reborn.

    A unique world that grows, cultivates, and uses Gu.

    The Spring and Autumn Cicada, the Venomous Moonlight Gu, the Wine Chong, All-Encompassing Golden Light Chong, Slender Black Hair Gu, Gu of Hope…

    And a great demon of the world that does exactly as his heart pleases!



    *The Gu in this case refers to 「蛊」, which is some sort of legendary venomous insect. In fact, the whole story seems to revolve around cultivating these magical bugs with interesting abilities….


    I really like the main character, he's so interesting. Also his twin brother, I feel a mix of like and hate for him.
    How does everyone else feel about the MC so far?

    This MC reminds me of elder Ginger from The magus era.

    For those who already read the starting chapters, will the brothers' relationship change? I'm not asking if they become best friends but at least an amicable relationship where they have good feelings for each other even if they don't communicate.

    For those who don't know Gu (蠱) is the Black Magic attributed to some minority groups in south China (mostly through racist heresy).

    As far as I've read before I dropped it (chapter 200~) their relationship doesn't really change
    The younger brother is self-righteous and cares about the sect
    The main character is self-interested and couldn't care less whether the sect gets annihilated

    Well, I expected that. Last question, is he going to leave the sect soon or after many chapters?

    He leaves the sect after about two hundred chapters iirc, which is also part of the reason I dropped it
    Huge spoiler if you want to know:
    He screws the sect's ancestor who was planning to use a demonic ritual that sacrifices the entire sect to improve his qualifications and uses the ritual for himself instead by using the spring and autumn cicada to go back in time, so everyone in the sect dies anyway after the two hundred chapters except the main character, his brother (who just happens to be outside of the ritual zone), and one of the main character's traveling companion

    The MC barely or probably doesn't even care whether his twin dies or not (I'm at volume 4 atm) while the younger brother does seem to feel pity for his older brother at times, but mainly they don't have a good relationship.
    Though the older brother always calls his younger brother "my dearest little brother" or "my stupid little brother" or something. And they always refer to each other as little/older brother even though their relationship is strained; they rarely use each other's names when talking to each other.
    It's a very weird type of 'bad relationship'

    Well it's explained how the others survived.
    Summary is -
    The younger brother survived due to pure luck by being outside the ritual range, and due to a series of events he was saved by someone else who needed his blood to find the older brother, while the other person who survived was the key to getting the main character out of the entire ordeal. It was actually a pretty mindblown ending (the end of volume one, where he leaves the sect)

    Guess spamming different threads is needed, but I do suggest adding it when you finally can, as a lot of people get interested in novels through seeing the first post and easily clicking on the link allows them to see more about the novel in specific

    Let's hope there is some rich guy with $100 who can donate it to lnmtl.com for adding Reverend Insanity.

    Was planning on using the free chapters on qidian until the paywall and then hoping to ask someone whether they know of any good source that is reliable, but if it got added to lnmtl I guess it would be even better

    This idiot MC wasted so much money. The Liqueur Gu is not attracted to wine. It's a Gu, Gu typically feed on the blood/essence of it's owners, it's attracted to drunks and people who drink wine.:rolleyes:

    Picked this up again and just finished reading volume 2, it was amazing and a lot better than volume 1
    From the events leading up to the third use of his spring and autumn cicada to how the ancestor's fairytale ties in with the plot and the finale of how he uses the legendary gu
    That has got to be the best plot twist I've ever read in a novel, and just when I was thinking the switching back between the brother's perspectives was beginning to get annoying
