So after deliberating for some time (not really) and arduously searching through 17k and other recommendations (not really either), I have decided to begin translating 龙血战神, which I will name temporarily as Dragon-Blooded War God. I am planning on making a poll a few chapters in to explore some other options, and see which is the most popular before permanently deciding.
I just read the summary from 17k, and uhh to be frankly honest, It’s weird to translate since most of the sentences when translated are only fragments, and I suck at Chinese so I can only summarize the summary. It seems like a good novel, but be warned, there is lots of blatant advertisement (even though that’s what it’s supposed to do). Anyways, without further ado, here it is.
In the ancient centuries of the yonder past, the heavens and the earth was rent, and in Long Ji Continent a tribe of dragons ruled supreme. But now, the dragons are extinct, and with a mysterious catastrophe descending, the fate of the world is at stake!
A teenager named Long Chen takes on the legacy of his father, chases after the mystery behind the sudden extinction of the dragons. In a lucky coincidence, he becomes the first ancient dragon warrior in an eon, with the responsibility to uphold the dragon tribe’s honor and the command of all dragons under heaven.
With the most passionate battles, heart-moving tender scenes, brutal slaughters, and filled with the majesty of dragons. On the advent of the catastrophe, millions upon millions of dragons descend upon the world again, bringing the world to the brink of an era of war.
For he of the ancient dragon tribe, is willing to paint the sky with blood, if only for the bonds of brotherhood; with a wave of the hand to reverse the flow of the galaxy, for a goddess worthy of praise; will pull the gods down from their celestial pedestal, sunder the heavens, for the good all living things under the sky!
Heaven- Devouring tribe, we have returned!

So how does it sound? Ok? So-so?… Meh?… Let me know! first chapter coming… um… whenever I can get it out.
Edit: Probably sometime tomorrow late morningish
Edit#2: After actually starting the translation, I have come to realize that the chapters are actually a lot harder to translate than MMS is, since with MMS, I can go through 1k characters in an hour while at the same time loafing around a bit, and in comparison, it has taken me an hour and a half to go through the same number of characters. So… the expected release date would either be tomorrow evening, or sometime during the memorial day weekend.
