A young man plagued by recurring nightmares finds himself visiting a blind fortune teller, who sends him to a world of martial arts that looks a lot like the wuxia stories he used to read.

In the sky of this world, a tome shines every now and then, revealing the hierarchy of mighty beings that seek power amid troubled times. Determined to unravel the mysteries of his involuntary journey and the secrets of the world he has ended up in, he endeavors to ascend the tome’s rankings, all while looking for a path back home.

Official Chinese blurb

Wandering the jianghu with a blade and wine, where beauties’ grace is filling one’s mind.

A youth, saber on his back and wine gourd at the waist, strides forth, yet the jianghu of his heart seems only more elusive;

With each flipped page of the Tome of Troubled Times, decades of nights soaked in rain pass over the jianghu.

As he suddenly turns to look back, he finds that the mortal world has shattered in his wake.

Review after 80 chapters. This is a great novel so far, in spite of the first five odd chapters. While there is transmigration, and mention of game elements, none of them actually play role at this time. The mystical events of the first few chapters don't play much of a role after that.

Instead it's a good wuxia, with a likeable MC and realistic side characters. The plot is a bit similar to Jade Dynasty, where circumstances lead to difficult choices and bad reputation, despite a clear heart. This story also... more>> reminds me of Legend of Great Tang’s Twin Dragons - at least in setting, plot, and scope

Also we have two potential love interests after only 80 chapters... Hopefully this isn't a trend, and the author keeps it realistic.

The translation has been great so far, with my only complaint being some weird phrasing, which is on purpose to highlight the difference between a "modern person" and the people of the world that he finds himself in. All things considered, this is a great read. <<less
