    The Chronicles of baby Deathblade

    It was literally just a few minutes ago that Baby Deathblade achieved
    a major breakthrough. I knew it would happen eventually, but it still
    came as a surprise. It was time for a diaper change… I opened the diaper
    and then suddenly thought, “Hey, what is this arcing stream of fluid
    that is spraying all over the changing table and my arm?” It took only a
    moment for me to achieve enlightenment. “Good job, son,” I said,
    grabbing a rag to dry myself off….

  • Important NEWS from Deathblade

    First is a change to the translation is because of what appears to be
    typo in the ISSTH raws (from more than one website, too, and in
    multiple chapters). I’m not sure if this is Er Gen’s mistake, or whether
    he intentionally decided to change the term later. In any case, you
    might remember a reference in chapters 139, 165 and 205
    to a “Woodless Bug.” Guess what, in Chinese, the word for “wood” or
    “tree” is 木 mù, the same as from the name Fang Mu. Well, it is an exact
    homophone for another Chinese word 目 mù, which means “eye.” It recently
    came to my attention that this bizarre creature should be called
    “Eyeless” and not “Woodless.” Well, I always thought “woodless” sounded
    weird anyway. I’m taking advantage of this moment to change the name to
    “Eyeless Larva.”

    Next is a tweak I made a long time ago but don’t think I mentioned.
    If you remember the term “League of Demon Sealers,” that term actually
    came up a bit earlier, except I originally translated it as “bloodline
    of the Demon Sealers.” From now on its “League of Demon Sealers.”

    Finally, I mentioned a long time ago that the 4 line poetic Blood
    Immortal Legacy magic was a work in progress. I’m happy to say that I’ve
    come to what I feel is a pretty acceptable final version. I might tweak
    a few words again much later down the line, but for now, it will read
    as follows:

    Without a face, a single word, the flames of war unify

    Sundered clouds, a bloody rain, seas that fill the sky

    Capture the gods, advance the troops, fire consumes the towers

    Forge all spirits and bloodlines into the 9 killing powers!

    Wow, it rhymes now, just like it does in Chinese. Cool! I’d like to
    thank wuxiaworld user anonpuffs for working with me on this passage that
    previously appeared in chapters 137 and 203.

    In other news, that picture I previously said was Xu Qing is actually
    Chu Yuyan. Many readers mentioned that they thought this was the case. I
    wanted to wait until I had concrete confirmation from an official
    source that it was true. Well, it is.

    Chronicles of Baby Deathblade: Last night I did something new. In the
    past I have read to Baby Deathblade, as my dad did to me when I was
    young. However, last night’s reading material was this very chapter,
    which helped me to also proofread at the same time. BD listened intently
    to about half the chapter before immediately falling to sleep. It also
    made me think how cool it would be to release an audiobook of ISSTH!
    Unfortunately, that’s not very practical to attempt to do right now…

    Chronicles of Baby Deathblade – Good news! Baby Deathblade seems to love
    baths! He cried throughout the first couple baths, but recently, he
    seems to love them. No crying, and even some smiles! I have an adorable
    picture from after today’s bath, after the jump!

    Chronicles of Baby Deathblade – Oh my god. Sorry for releasing later
    than usual today but, Baby Deathblade basically refused to sleep for
    more than about ten minutes at a time for like… the entire night. Not
    sure if the poor kid has colic or if he just slept too much earlier in
    the day, or what. Right now he’s sleeping soundly and I’m debating
    whether to go back to bed, or brew up a cup of coffee and translate
    while I have some peace and quiet. Hmm… I’m leaning toward the second
    option actually….

    Chronicles
    of Baby Deathblade – Okay, I can now confirm that Baby Deathblade has
    been laughing, although always when sleeping. I was poking around online
    and according to some researchers, newborns this young occasionally can
    laugh in their sleep. My main curiosity is what he’s laughing at. I
    think it might have to do with how he managed to poop outside of his
    diaper today when I was holding him. And secretly, at that! I looked
    down after hearing some mysterious (and thunderous) sounds, only to find
    my shirt and pants to have been “dyed” with an interesting new color!
    It was not long after this that he fell asleep and laughed. True story.

    Chronicles of Baby Deathblade

    Chronicles of Baby Deathblade – Baby Deathblade developed a new
    technique recently: Tears. That’s right, when he cried before, there
    were never tears. But now (depending on how upset he is), teeny, tiny
    glittering tears will appear in the corners of his eyes. They’re super
    small, like the size of a few grains of salt, but… awwwww, how can you
    resist something like that!?

    Chronicles of Baby Deathblade – Sorry for the lateness in posting this
    chapter, but, a government doctor came over to give Baby Deathblade a
    checkup. All is well, but the thing I got a kick out the most was that
    the doctor used an old fashioned measuring scale to weigh him, the same
    type that people use on the street to measure vegetables in China. Check
    out the picture below. P.S. BD once again was up almost the entire
    time. After posting this chapter, I’m gonna make a few cups of coffee
    and get to translating!

    Chronicles of Baby Deathblade

    Chronicles of Baby Deathblade – Well, it seems Baby Deathblade has made
    up his mind. One of his favorite times to be awake is from about 4:30 in
    the morning until about 9:00. And guess which member of the Clan gets
    to accompany him? That’s right, yours truly. As long as BD is fed and
    has a clean diaper, he doesn’t cry, unless you try to get him to sleep.
    So, I usually just hold him in one arm and read ISSTH on my phone with
    the free hand. A few hours later, though, I have to take a nap… That’s
    why the chapters have been later recently….

    Chronicles of Baby Deathblade: Madam Deathblade and I plan to raise the
    little tike speaking both English and Mandarin. Today I was explaining
    this to him in Chinese. I said, “You know, there are two languages,
    Chinese and English, both of which you need to learn!” His response was
    to give a wide smile and then roll his eyes. OMG. I thought he wasn’t
    going to start rolling his eyes at my words of wisdom until he was at
    least a preteen!!!

    The funniest thing happened last night. Baby Deathblade woke us up, but
    as for me, I was still half dreaming. “What’s wrong?” asked Madam
    Deathblade. “Level up,” I replied. “What?” she said. Then I responded in
    Chinese: “Foundation Establishment…. Core Formation….” Apparently after
    that I also asked for a medicinal pill for Core Formation. She told me
    not to post this because it’s “embarrassing” but I think it’s hilarious.

    Chronicles of Baby Deathblade – As I mentioned in the previous post, we
    had a bit of traveling to do today. The weather is getting cold, so Baby
    Deathblade had to dress warm. Of course, he did so in a stylish (or you
    might say cute) fashion. Check out a picture after the jump. By the
    way, the sneak peek chapter title contains a bit of a spoiler, please
    remember that some people don’t like spoilers and also don’t look at the
    sneak peek. Therefore, please keep spoiler info from the sneak peek
    chapter as just that: spoilers, which shouldn’t be discussed in the
    chapter comments.

  • Announcement Deathblade - Twitter account

    I didn’t mention in the previous chapter release, but I had a huge
    headache of a morning thanks to my main power panel breaking, leaving me
    without electricity. At first I wasn’t sure if I would be able to post
    the chapter, but then realized I could use my phone data to do so, and
    all was well. However, I also realized it would be convenient to be able
    to communicate such situations to you the readers. Therefore, I started
    a twitter account
    to post information about the ISSTH translation. Keep in mind I’m
    behind the great firewall and have to use a VPN to access twitter, so I
    won’t be using it constantly. However, when situations like this
    morning’s arise, it will be convenient to keep everyone updated.

    We are off to an important, regularly scheduled doctor’s visit for BD (that I was informed of late last night). Please enjoy:
  • Hey guys,

    I just want to apologize to everyone and inform you guys that I am no longer going to be updating memes or interesting facts anymore. The reason being that I am not going to be reading any of the stories in Wuxia World. its not that the stories are bad I just don't have the time anymore... Thanks for being so understanding.
  • Aww I missed this! Good luck with life bro.
  • Outtakes of Deathblade

    Outtakes return, accompanied by witty comments from yours truly. See
    them after the jump! This chapter is inexplicably short, so I’m going to
    switch the order of chapters again. Tomorrow will have two sponsored
    chapters and no guaranteed chapter, whereas this chapter counts as a
    guaranateed chapter. I swear if I see anyone comment “do the chapters
    seem like they are getting shorter,” then hopefully some of you Fellow
    Daoists can “enlighten” them.

    Also a clarification about the release schedule: When I said that
    “next year” my work schedule would change, possibly allowing for more
    chapters, what I meant was “sometime next year” not “starting January
    1.” That change is in the pipes, but won’t happen probably until March
    or so. Until then, I will be aiming for the usual 14 chapters per week.

    Some of these actually made it into the release….

    BD is doing great. The other day I bought him a new hat and pants, and took a couple pictures which I then made into an animated gif. He looks like he’s doing his best John Travolta imitation! By the way, his outfit is completely mismatched because I just wanted to see how the hat and pants fitted. In the future, I hope all pics of him will be more matching and fashionable! See the pic after the jump!

    Chinese is a tonal language, which means that pronouncing a single syllable in the wrong tone can lead to huge mistakes. Just such a mistake occurred to me over the weekend. I wanted to say the word “dà pī shēng chǎn” which means “mass production” or literally “great amounts production.” Unfortunately, for the second syllable “pi,” I said it in the fourth tone instead of the first tone, like this: “dà pì shēng chǎn.” The result was that instead of saying “great amounts production” I actually said “great farts production.” Needless to say that led to some laughter on the part of the listeners and a bright red face for me….

    Bad news, Fellow Daoists. Later this week I need to take a trip to Beijing to visit the American Embassy. As a result, I’m not sure how many chapters I will be able to put out on Friday. It might be 1, or perhaps 0, depending on how all the traveling and waiting goes. As a citizen, I can bypass the line of Chinese people applying for American visas, which is usually has literally hundreds maybe thousands of people in it. Unfortunately, I’m not allowed to take any electronic devices inside, which means no reading or translating while I wait.

    I think it’s pretty funny that the English term “glittering eyes” has become a common term in the Deathblade Clan. Lately, it’s come to describe one of the situations Madam Deathblade fears the most. In the wee hours of the night, BD will sometimes awaken with what she describes as “glittering eyes,” which basically means that he is totally awake with no chance of falling asleep.
