Re; Hell Gate is the Games genre novel by TheCrow that tells the story of Leiu, 24 years old, who is struggling between providing care for his own family and finding a reasonable job with a regular income. After spending a lot of time working various part-time jobs, he has enough money to purchase a new VRMMO game which will be released very soon.
Read the novel to discover Leiu's progress as well as adventures in this new game.
[User, there is an increasing fluctuation of energy from the g-]Eva’s voice turned into silence, but more surprising was the abrupt change of environment.Sumbus, Leiu, and Voido, were standing in an endlessly dark world, but the ‘Darkness’ was completely different from the norm. It wasn’t Primordial Darkness or simply an overabundance of Darkness energy. This was something else entirely.Before anyone could speak, innumerable lightning bolts pierced through the ‘darkness’, shattering like glass and revealing an empty space not unlike space itself.There were star wars that were far, far away, but most noticeably, the majority of them were caught one supernova after the other.Leiu and Sumbus felt immense dread as an overwhelming pressure assaulted them, locking them into that empty space. Leiu tried to use the Darkness to protect himself but, surprisingly, it wouldn’t come out. It seemed unresponsive and ineffective as if something was sealing it away.Sumbus fared even worse as h
4 days laterSouth of WeijiThe Dead Marshes[The Control Command is 350 meters North-East of your current location]Thanks to Eva’s precise instructions, it wasn’t particularly hard to find the quest’s destination.Leiu was still in a gloomy mood, but he persevered and didn’t waste time staying in the manor.He was accompanied by the Void Incarnate and Sumbusu Darrer, respectively User #3 and #4 of System Epsilon.As it turned out, Eva, after asking them, had integrated the System into them. Only after the fact was Leiu made aware of that.

“Huff… huff..”Leiu was gasping for air aboard the ship’s deck. Anne was hugging him, relieved that he made it out alive.Sumbus was also sitting down, his complexion paler than usual. Before returning to the surface, Leiu closed the Void Rift with the Primordial Darkness. He had less than 20% health remaining and his mind was still befuddled.“I’m… okay, Anne.”“Drink this.”She forced him to drink three Health Potions, which did help with the physical wounds.“Leiu.”The Mermaid Queen stood a couple of feet away. Her heavy injuries notwithstanding, she was faring relatively well, at least better than him.[Lanna ‘Mermaid Queen’(Race: Astral Mermaid)(World Boss ‘S): Lv1027][Health: 220,729/1,500,000]“Lanna…”Leiu scrutinized her, noticing some similarities with the mermaid he had met in the past.Lanna had grown more mature and, clearly, considerably stronger. Admittedly, she and Leiu weren’t the best friends, but they did help each other in the ‘past’.“We could’ve killed Him.”
Tenebris sat up and proceeded to wear his bloodied and dirty clothes back.‘I’ll be damned. You actually went through with it. I’m impressed, Tenebris.’While pretending as if he didn’t hear the voice, Tenebris looked to the side. Kusomi also properly sat up and stoically looked at him.“It hurt a bit. Other than that… it wasn’t anything special.”‘Hear that, dumbass? No chance you’re getting laid a second time.’After being pressed by the voice, Tenebris eventually relented and had sex with Kusomi. It wasn’t anything dramatic, and from beginning to end, it barely lasted an hour.Although he got to enjoy the soft body of a beautiful elf, Tenebris wasn’t that happy. He had hoped the two of them would ‘feel’ differently amidst the action and pleasure, but no such thing happened.The virgin elf was inexperienced, so he took the lead, but having sex like that didn’t really mean anything. At least not to him. He should have trusted his gut and refused, but feeble hope and lust persuaded hi
With the help of the Dark Archmage’s spell, Leiu and Anne were able to dive underwater and breathe. The Void Incarnate, which wasn’t even a living creature, simply jumped down and transformed into somesort of a hideous hammerhead shark.Leiu really wanted to question it as it never said it could change its appearance, but now wasn’t the time.The four swam deeper and deeper until the Void Rifts were in sight. They let out ominous purple glows, all haphazardly scattered everywhere.Albeit not at full speed, Leiu was able to swiftly reach them and used Primordial Darkness to forcefully close them down. Oddly enough, no Voidspawn came out to attack him. Only Void Riftss were present, which, rather than fortunate, felt like a bad omen.Thus, as they kept descending closer and closer to the seafloor, Leiu got rid of any Void Riftss in the way. It was a tedious but not overly-taxing process.Eventually, however, they reached the two, aforementioned, big Void Riftss. They were massive, but
“When is the Hell Gate going to open?”After talking with Elena and the rest, Leiu left Black Mountain City altogether. He looked at his newest companion, the fearful Sumbus Darrar.Startled, the old Necromancer looked at the red moon hanging in the sky. Night has yet to fall, but the moon stuck out like a store thumb. It was still waxing, albeit at a very slow speed.“Two weeks, at most.”“And where’s the gate?”“I… I can only locate it when it is about to open.”As he saw the suspicious stare of the Dark Knight, Sumbus vigorously nodded his head while waving his hands around. “I swear, Dark Knight! I do not dare lie to you!”Seeing how the old man behaved, it was hard to think of him as the one from the legends. He was like an obedient dog, following Leiu and doing everything asked of him.In fact, he was sensible enough to notice Leiu’s relationship with Anne, so he treated the Vampire with the utmost politeness and respect.[User, a suggestion: Eliminate the Administrator in-]‘I
Ten more days passed, in which Kusomi didn’t stop absorbing the Nature Aspect. It kept empowering her to an unimaginable degree, but at the same time, her condition was getting noticeably worse.At times, her feet would stumble and she would lose balance. Also, albeit infrequently, she would cough some blood.Tenebris’ training with the sword, even after fifteen days, saw no improvement whatsoever. The only plausible explanation for this was his abysmal talent and weak body.After all, Kusomi tried to help him by injecting a bit more Nature Aspect into his body, which should have increased his stamina and increased his physical capabilities by a small margin, but even that didn’t have any effect.Humans were able to, broadly speaking, absorb the Nature Aspect. It would just disperse out of the body after some time, nevertheless, it was a bit strange that Tenebris, excluding the fact that it satiated his hunger and thirst, didn’t benefit from it all.“I got you!”As they were walking i
South-East gate of Black Mountain City“What are we supposed to do?”“Try to stop him. Make sure he doesn’t slaughter everyone.”“He’s just one person. Why are you all so nervous?”Many Transcendents were lined up, armed to the teeth as they waited for the imminent arrival of the Nameless Knight.Elena had already declared that He was on his way to Black Mountain City. However, she only sent the strongest Transcendents in the Earth Coalition.They weren’t meant to attack the Dark Knight, simply resist if he attacked.“Without my order, do not attack him.”Frozen Torch, who stood at the front, turned to look at them. He was usually a cheerful guy, but he now had a very solemn and stoic face.Other than the Transcendents, there were also close to 500 knights, all wearing light-blue armors.Led by Knight Commander Silver Gicolt, who was familiar with Leiu.Elena had sent him specifically due to his relationship with Leiu. Time crept by, the atmosphere was heavy, and everyone was tense.
East of the Noules EmpireThe Blackened PlateauThe Weiji Alliance Military EncampmentAfter spending his brief forays in the Ice Snowlands and then attacking the ISB on Earth, Leiu finally returned to Menhit.“You killed them all?”“It wasn’t me who killed them, but their top executives and leaders are dead.”Once he confirmed that, the Goddess of Fury let out a hearty laugh and gave him a bear hug.“You didn’t disappoint, Dark Knight!”When she pulled her body back and let go of him, Leiu took a deep breath. Menhit was much taller than he was, and being hugged like that by her almost made him suffocate, and not to speak about Anne, who was standing a couple of feets away.“What of the Imperials?”With a bright smile on her face, Menhit briefed him about what occurred during his absence.Apparently, there was a big meeting between the army leaders of the Weiji Alliance and the military officers of Noules.Furthermore, Queen Elizabeth returned. After all the perpetrators in the Counci
