RWBK Chapter 4: Challenges

[[[This is our official Twitter account please follow us and we will follow you back!]]]]]


With an indifferent expression on his face, Rhodes stood with the sword in his hand.

This is the second time he has entered this extremely wonderful state. Last time it passed away in a flash, this time he could feel it well.

It was as if everything between heaven and earth was completely silent, with nothing in between, only the sound of his own heartbeat could be heard.

“Is this the Breath of All Things??”

At first, there was a touch of surprise in Rhodes’ heart, but he quickly managed to regain his calm.

It seems that in this state, the whole person’s emotional awareness is highly concentrated, and it is difficult to be disturbed by other factors.

“I focused my mind and all my senses on the black stone, so I can cut it. I must try something else.”

He began to try to focus his mind on other objects. It seemed to be faint, and he could some breathing, from things such as wood, stone, ground, etc.

“Is this the so-called Observation Haki?”

Rhodes couldn’t help but feel a bit of doubt. This feeling was too similar to the description of the Observation Haki.

Just when he was about to comprehend it, there were sudden bursts of unbelievable exclamations from the outside world, because the agent calculated Rhodes’ achievements and revealed that Rhodes was qualified to become a soldier in the revolutionary army reserve force.

His Doriki Strength value is two hundred and forty-nine!

This wasn’t a low value. Among the people who passed this test, he’s considered to be in the top middle of the list.

“How is this possible?!”

“This is not right.”

Naturally, people couldn’t believe it, and there was an uproar.

Everyone saw Rhodes’ physical fitness test just now. It stands to reason that someone with weak physical standards cannot have such a high Doriki Strength value. If it wasn’t for everyone who knew Rhodes’ identity, they would have all suspected that someone was cheating.

Everyone muttered, but no one dared to raise doubts in public.

Either way, there will be an actual combat test later. And Rhodes will end up being challenged by someone else and will have to prove his worth then.

As for the broken black stone, if they didn’t see it with their own eyes, no one would have thought that Rhode did it.

Rhodes didn’t care about any of that.

After he withdrew from the state of concentration, he quickly found a stone bench outside the square and sat down, then he began to reminisce about the brief moment of concentration he experienced just now.

After this sudden incident, Rhodes gained some understanding of the breath of all things. He should be able to enter it directly next time when it’s needed.

This is the true strength of the talent of swordsmanship specialists. He can quickly learn and master anything related to swordsmanship.

At this moment, Koala came over and whispered:

“You surprised me.”

“It just happened to break out. I don’ have such a strength usually.”

Rhode shook his head.

“It’s a great achievement anyway. This is the profound meaning of cutting iron with a wooden sword that can only be understood by swordsmen. It seems that your swordsmanship talent is very high.”

Koala said with a smile, but there was a look of inquiry in the depths of her eyes.

“Of course.”

Rhodes’ eyes flashed, and he said with a smile, “You know that use scalpel, right?”

“When I use my scalpel, my cut is very stable and accurate.”

“Therefore, when I came into contact with the sword, I realized that I was really suitable for swordsmanship, and I learned it easily.”

Just blame it on talent, it’s not a shocking thing anyway.

“So it’s talent, huh?”

Koala didn’t have any doubts, she just asked subconsciously. After she got an acceptable answer, she didn’t go into further details.

“But you need to be careful, someone will challenge you later.”

The so-called actual combat test is not actually for the likes of Rhodes, who have a qualifying Doroki Value, but to give people with less than 200 Doroki Strength a chance, a chance to challenge Rhodes, and the others to prove their worth.

After all, the Doroki Strength value cannot represent the actual combat power. If you can defeat them, it will naturally mean that you have the standards to join the reserve force.

When Koala asked Rhodes to take part in the test, she was actually thinking about his chances to qualify using this method.

Swordsmanship is the best at actual combat. When fighting, the sword is the most feared existence. Often, the weak can defeat the strong.


Rhode nodded calmly but didn’t seem like he cared much.

If he can’t even beat these people who are not even good to qualify, he should find a piece of tofu earlier and kill him.

Rhodes was one of the last people, so after he finished the test, the power test was over soon.

“The list of those who passed has now been announced, then… the next step is the actual combat test.”

Koala’s voice attracted everyone’s attention.

And almost in the next instant, a series of sounds rang out.

“I, Ed, challenge Rhodes!”

“I, Leif, challenge Rhodes!”


This sudden scene caught Koala a little off guard, why so many people are challenging him?

But when she thought about it, she understood and couldn’t help but laugh.

Although the Doroki Strength value cannot fully represent the combat effectiveness, it can also reflect a large part of it. Usually, not many people chose to challenge, because of the big gap in the Doroki Strength of two hundred or so.

But Rhodes is different.

Everyone has seen with their own eyes that in the physical fitness test, Rhodes only barely passed in terms of strength, and in the other physical qualities such as speed and resistance his results were average.

It might be true that his weapon mastery is a little high, but how high can it be?

This is a chance that should not be missed.

If you miss this rare chance now, you will have to wait another year, so everyone is rushing to fight Rhodes since each person who passes can only be challenged three times.

Looking at this scene, the rest of the boys and girls who passed the test glanced at Rhodes from the corner of their eyes, waiting to watch a show.

The few other people with barely 200 Doroki, breathed a sigh of relief.

Fortunately, Rhodes has passed too. This time, there are quite a few people with a Doroki value close to 200. If they were to be challenged, they may get capsized!

“So troublesome.”

In the crowd, Rhode pouted, it’s not good to be too low-key after all.

“It seems that it is necessary to work on your reputation too.”

Walking out of the crowd, Rhodes held the practice sword and slowly came forward.

Glancing at the excited teenagers across from him, Rhodes fell silent and decided to shock them.

“You can come at me one by one…”

“Or do you wanna come together?”

As soon as these words came out, the fiery emotions in the audience stagnated slightly, and then there was an uproar.

Everyone looked at this slightly skinny boy in white with incredible eyes, as if they didn’t know him before.

“I’ll come first!”

While the others were still in shock, a voice suddenly sounded, and at the same time, a kid took a step forward and came to the center of the arena.

“Bastard, this guy Edd got ahead of us.”

When Leif and the others came back to their senses, they couldn’t help but feel a little annoyed.

Edd looked a little bit too confident, it seemed as if he had defeated Rhodes and already joined the reverse forces.

“I’m sorry, Dr. Rhodes, I also want to be a reservist.”

Edd apologist respectfully, but his expression was very firm. Obviously, he wouldn’t miss out on this opportunity, even if Rhodes treated his injuries countless times.

“If you beat me, you will naturally be a reservist.”

Rhodes stood in the center with a sword in hand and an extremely calm expression on his face.

Hello everyone, we have finally released our new novel, Reincarnated With the Book of Knowledge.
Similar to God of Soul System the story takes place in the One Piece world, but the MC, Rhodes, joins the Revolutionary Army.

We’re always hoping to provide the best read to everyone, and that’s why we chose this novel.
It’s interesting and really fun to read, the system is really awesome, and there are a lot of fights!
It took us a lot of time and effort to search and find a good novel, one that is interesting, and can be enjoyed by everyone.

Releasing this novel means that the Dragon Ball: Creation x Destruction will be dropped. Unfortunately this one turned out to be really boring, started good but then got really repetitive, thus for those, who wanted us to continue we’re really sorry for any inconvenience, but I really couldn’t keep working on something I wasn’t enjoying.

Currently, we have published chapter 35 on Patreon, so if you wishes to support us, please join us there so you can read ahead of the free releases.
