This is a harem novel, so be sure that you're okay with that before reading. As much as I could promise you that the harem members won't be 2D plot devices, everything is always up to interpretation.
However, what I can promise is that regardless of whether you enjoy harems or not, the plot of TGL will be gripping, exciting and interesting. If it helps, just pretend like the harem is just a side indulgence for my fellow pervs before we get to the real story, lol
(just to be clear, the harem will without a doubt give a purpose to each female I introduce into it. I just know that some people will rage regardless, so, I put this disclaimer here).

In the sea of stars, the experts gather.

Their origins, mindset, and experiences differ, but they have something in common - they all speak the language of power.

The absolute might, that nothing can chain has the power to silence everything.

In all eras, there were always people who ruled and those, who were ruled. Only the mightiest can set these laws and control others and their own fate.

The path of the sovereign is filled with blood and corpses.  

Calamity was neither the fiercest nor mightiest man to have lived.

He was born the day his family was massacred, hence his name. His name held another meaning, the hope, that one day he would return as a calamity to his enemies. 

Considering his talents and background, he reached unimaginable heights and fulfilled his family's last wish.

Unfortunately, his end wasn't pleasant. He died in the hands of junior, whose realm was lower than his.

He had worked harder than others, yet it never truly made up for the gap between him and those who never lacked the care of mighty experts and had access to limitless cultivation resources.

Still, at the peak of his life, he was pretty strong, but never did he have time to settle down and enjoy what he had. He had come that far with undying persistence and unshakable willpower in the first place, but...it still wasn't enough.

Before his soul was destroyed along with his body, he resolutely decided to give everything up and flee for his life, as he escaped with the secret technique, towards an unknown destination. 

As fate would have it, the luck was on his side this time, as he managed to successfully give himself the second chance.

Will the scenario repeat itself, or will he walk upon the path of the sovereign in this life?

God only knows...

Author's Note: I'm aiming to do something a little different here, with cultivation and LitRPG elements in a modern setting that has developed around them (so not system apocalypse). The story will have one foot in realism, so don't expect the protagonist to be handed immense power immediately. There's a longer note at the end of the first chapter, but the plan is to upload a new chapter every three days until the story is complete.

________________________________________________

Disclaimers:

1. I currently am the only writing, editing and revising the story so expect some grammar and spelling errors.

2. If you notice, my average word count is at 500 words. I personally prefer this to stop bombarding too much information in one chapter and also to give me more space to update more chapters.

3. The story progress might be a little too confusing at the start but, rest assured, there will more detailed informations later on as the story progress that will explain most confusions.

4. Opinions, personal beliefs, and names of characters and places in the novel do not represent the beliefs and ideologies of the author and real people in the real world.

5. I would do my best to update every day. For now, I plan to schedule my updates every 12 noon (GMT+5). Numbers of chapter may depend on my work loads as I am currently working in a company (A video Editor), if less work loads, more chapters will be released.

6. And lastly, this is actually a sports-fantasy novel. So expect a little bit of out of this world action.

7. I am planning to host this novel in more web novel sites. In case I get a contract, I will have to remove this novel from other sites.

This is a somewhat rewritten version of my last story that went by the name of 'Heavenly Martial Academy', but the setting changed and also did the tone. I hope you enjoy this new version as I try to merge the best of Eastern and Western Fantasy in a single magic system.
