Part 1: Core story of Reverend Insanity
Reverend Insanity is set in a world where the supernatural is just a natural occurrence; this story focuses on the way the Gu worms are used rather than their strength; this creates a balance in which no enemies are weak or strong when fighting on the same level.
There are an infinite number of Gu worms, each with its own unique use, and the combinations of the Gu worms create infinite possibilities. Gu worms don’t even have to be used to fight, so Gu masters don’t have to fight if they don’t want to.
The story depicts a society in which clans and sects rule over the weak. The power struggle within and between clans is incredible and realistic, accurately describing the corrupt nature of humans in positions of power. The deeper you delve into this harsh but beautiful world, the more you will realize the complexities of its inter-organizational relationships.
In reverend insanity, the world is divided into several regions, each with its own way of life and culture. The Northern region is defined by a more primitive way of life in which the strong prey on the weak and tribal conflict is constant. The Eastern region is rich in resources, and the people who live there live comfortable lives; as a result of the resources, many geniuses bloom.
The Western region is a vast desert where people live in harsh conditions. The Southern region has average resources and habitat, people live in clans, and there are few major conflicts. The Central region is a safe haven ruled by sects, and geniuses are handpicked from the populace to ensure the sects’ success.
Reverend Insanity tells the story of Fang Yuan through many people’s eyes: a heartbroken girl thirsting for vengeance, a girl not of this world saddened by her fate, a man filled with ambition, and a man trying to right his wrongs.
One aspect of the story you will cringe at is when the main character started killing innocent people but then let those his enemies go because his enemies got good and strong backgrounds and it’ll be troublesome to kill them and face the vengeance of their clan in reverend insanity.
But when he gets stronger and can purge the clan, he wouldn’t not only do it because he thinks it is of benefit to him. He doesn’t care about them, when he is strong, everyone below him is just like ants in his eyes. He killed good and precious people since they were easy to bully and they don’t have a strong background. He often let those people who betrayed him go scot-free.
Why he did so, was because he doesn’t care about vengeance. When people betray him and if he thinks that the person is still useful to him, he lets them go and acts if as nothing happened.
Part 2: Main character of Reverend Insanity
Fang Yuan began his life in the Gu world. In his actions, he is cunning, cold, and brutal. He has clear and unattainable goals and is willing to give up everything to achieve them. In reverend’s insanity, he knows humans inside and out and can manipulate them as he pleases.
He never changes, has no desire for a harem, and does not allow emotions to get in the way of his goals. Death is only part of the journey for him; he takes risks, plans for the future, kills whenever he sees fit, isn’t bound by honor, fame, or shame, and achieves the majority of his goals through hard work and trickery.
Throughout the story, he does not change and becomes a threat to the world. His adaptability in any situation and emotionless actions, as well as his cunning and scheming mind, make him such a great character.
All of his actions are far more realistic and truly evil than those of most other novel’s main characters. He’s not being evil for the sake of being evil; he’s being evil to achieve goals and desires that would otherwise be impossible to achieve by playing the good guy.
Part 3: Conclusion of Reverend Insanity
Reverend Insanity is not a book for those who enjoy saviors, family relationships, romantic subplots, and devoted friends. It’s also not for people who like the main character who has to defend his pride all the time; this main character doesn’t care about pride and instead puts forth wit and logic.If you love this story plot, you will enjoy reading Eternal Empire Online: The Rise of the Mythical Detective.
