Where the Noodles Are Translated

Hail the King Chapter 4

Chapter 4: “Barbarian” Fei

“Why am I here? What happened?”

The recent events left confused Fei even more. The only thing he knew for sure was that he had magically appeared in this Diablo-esque world after that mysteriously cold voice read off some familiar loading screen lingo. Looking around, Fei saw that he had become a “Barbarian”, which Fei recognized was one of the game characters.

The rusty hand axe appeared in his right hand and a battered, junk-like buckler in his left. It didn’t take long for Fei to subconsciously understand his status in the game.

The next second, a high tech like screen popped up in front of him out of nowhere, just like those in Iron Man’s mansion.

Gamer: Fei
Class: Barbarian
Level: 1
Experience: 0/5000
Strength: 30 Dexterity: 20
Intelligence: 10 Vitality: 20
Damage: 3-7 Accuracy: 102
Armor: 11 Endurance: 92
Health: 45 Resource (Fury): 10
Fire-Resistance: 0 Cold-Resistance: 0
Lightning-Resistance: 0 Poison-Resistance: 0


“These are my attributes in the game?”

Fei saw his name on the top of the screen. “What the heck! I just became the king and now I’m in a game world? And a barbarian? NO! At least let me be classier like a wizard or a crusader.”

At this moment, an armored man in blue rushed over.

“Greetings, stranger. I’m not surprised to see your kind here. Many adventurers have traveled this way since the recent troubles began. No doubt you’ve heard about the tragedy that befell the town of Tristram. Some say that Diablo, the Lord of Terror, walks the world again……”

The man just went on and on with his dialogue. Fei’s jaw dropped.

As one of the original fans of Diablo, Fei could immediately see that this man was Warriv, a NPC (Non-playable character) from the【Rogue Encampment】by the way he dressed and his dialogue lines. Every time a new player spawns, this dude will run to the player with a big golden question mark over his head.

Fei observed him while listening to his lines.

Neither his movement nor his facial expression felt like an NPC. If Fei didn’t recognize this man, he would have thought that Warriv was a real person. Even the heat that he exhaled while speaking turned into a white fog in this cold air. Fei even felt the moist sensation from it.

“I’m not sure if the NPCs in this world have any intelligence?”

After Warriv finished his long speech, Fei purposely asked a few questions.

“Hey, what’s your mother’s maiden name? What street did you grown up on?”

However, Warriv didn’t bother answering him. He just walked away after he finished.

He still left Fei clueless.

After thinking for a while, Fei decided to go find another person – Priestess Akara.

From his gaming memory, if he remembered correctly, the first ever quest in Diablo’s first map 【Rogue Encampment】was from her, a high priestess from the sisterhood of the “Sightless Eye”. On top of that, she was also the leader of the 【Rogue Encampment】so Fei had to find her if he wants to know what was going on.

The streets were quiet and lifeless.

Fei passed through a few tents and fences and finally spotted priestess Akara’s tent behind a wooden cage wagon. There were lots of weirdly shaped bottles and jars surrounding the tent. Fei was quite far away and could already smell the strange odours coming from them.

Akara, who was wearing a purple nun robe, was standing in front of the tent.

Fei walked over and a golden question mark appeared above Akara’s head.

“I am Akara, High Priestess of the Sisterhood of the Sightless Eye. I welcome you, traveler ……” Akara started to introduce herself, the same as in the original game.

As expected, after the conversation, she gave Fei a quest.

“The Den of Evil”, kill all the evil creatures in an evil cave at【Blood Moor】 just outside of the 【Rogue Encampment】. It’s exactly as Fei remembered. A red button was projected on the left side of Fei’s vision.

He pressed the button and a detailed description came up. It looked like there weren’t any other choice so he accepted the quest.

Fei tried to organize his words to appear more sophisticated. “Honorable Akara, may I know more information about this place?”

He wanted to know if any of the NPCs had any intelligence and he hoped he could get some clues about why he appeared in this world.

“Young traveller, you have to complete your quest first before you can know more…”

Akara’s answer surprised Fei.

This is not something that was scripted in the original game. That showed that in this world, NPCs had some freedom, and that they aren’t some rigid pre-programmed code.

Fei wanted to ask more, but Akara turned around and went into her tent.

He tried to follow her but was blocked by a mysterious force and couldn’t get within 1 meter of the entrance.

“Looks like I have to complete the quest first…”

After failing to get any answers from a couple other NPCs in the【Rogue Encampment】, Fei walked out the gate that was guarded by a female rogue, and stepped into the dangerous【Blood Moor】where a ton of monsters were lurking around.

“Warning!! Gamer Fei, you have enter 【Blood Moor】. Killing monsters will grant you unexpected surprises… But if you fail your quest, you will receive some mysterious penalties!” said a mysterious voice before laughing like a maniac.

Fei recognized it as the voice that appeared in his mind earlier. It went by so fast, that Fei only heard the first couple sentences. The laughter was filled with gloat; however, compared with the cold, machine like tone before, it’s definitely more human like this time.


After three hours,


Fei chopped the twentieth 【Quill Rat】with his axe. A white beam of light came down from the sky and embraced Fei.

“Level up!”

This is not the first time that it happened, and Fei was expecting it. It’s very comfortable in the light, Fei felt like moaning. All the bleeding wounds from fighting the monsters closed and healed within three seconds.

After four or five second, the light disappeared.

Two dark red buttons appeared in front of Fei. The one on the left was labeled【New Attributes Points】 and the one on the right read【New Skill Points】. These are the rewards each time after leveling up.

Fei first opened up the【New Attributes Points】 menu.

Every time after leveling up, there will be five points for Fei to improve his physique. He distributed three points to 【Strength】 and two points to 【Vitality】without thinking. Those were the primary attributes of a “Barbarian”.

He then opened up 【New Skill Points】and distributed the one point he got from leveling up to 【Weapon Mastery】

Fei is now a level five “Barbarian”. All the twenty five attribute points were distributed to 【Strength and【Vitality】. Out of the five skill points, three were distributed to 【Weapon Mastery】and two to the Warcry skill【Howl】.

The reason he did it is because this is a real world.

As a player, Fei gets injured  and wounded from fight the monsters. He doesn’t just lose health, he felt one hundred percent of the pain as well.

What is worth mentioning is that everything in this world is real, even the monsters. They are not programs nor codes. Their screams, spewing blood and chopped up bodies were irritating Fei’s nerves every second.

  1. Oh sweet! Thanks for the chapter! This’ll be on reddit too xD

  2. bacosajo

    Amazing. I’m waiting for the next. Thank you very much.

  3. Raw link?

  4. Nine

    Wow! Awesome story! Thanks for those chapters. Hope you continue updating this

  5. PantsuParty

    Thanks for the new chapter! This looks promising

    • Of course manggggg, we are the noodletown we choose the right noodles

      • Are the noodles magic or will they stay a barbarian, translating like hitting… Urm… I stopped playing diablo and divine divinity because I had no map. 🙁

        • The noodles are sexy oh ho ho

          • When you travel into a r----d in a new world then somehow get flipped upside down into the world of diablo, except with decent graphics. You must do your best to look like a sexy noodle. Air dried or fried? It doesn’t matter as long as the priestess cries. Don’t push her down, not that way. Although barbarians are probably lawful evil, so you’d be one wild noodley noodle noo.

  6. Conan

    Intelligence: 20 Vitality: 10

    a barbarian with low vitality and hight intel?
    broken balance?

    • Haha I see your concern. It must be a typo on the my part. I will get it fixed right away. Thanks for pointing it out!

      • Mages are more flashy and we’d probably see a workable system for magic which the MC would have to adapt to. I can’t say I’m not disappointed 🙁

        • Hi Synthous, there are more to the power system than it may seem at this stage. Just wait and see how the story unfolds! I can promise that you won’t be disappointed!

  7. LordIsak

    feeling confused from being King to a Barbarian, did he die or something after becoming the king?

  8. Thanks for the chapter!

  9. Vincent

    Is this a fanfiction? Can they(the person who wrote it) just use an existing game as a backdrop for a story they make money with(assuming it’s not fanfiction)?

    • Hi Vincent, yes it is a fan fiction I believe and since we are talking about a country where the copyright law is basically nonexistent, the answer to your question is that yes they can…but I guess the won’t get in any trouble because there isnt any conflict in business interest with the people that designed Diablo. Its sort of like making youtube videos of you playing a game and monetizing it

    • To be more concise, it’s a little bit different from a fan-fiction. The novel uses Diablo as a a part of story, but the novel is primarily focused on the “King Alexander”. There are way more going. Just wait and see how the story unfolds!

  10. yinang83

    Suddenly, I am so lost. It was so interesting with the king point of view. What happened?

    Thanks for the chapter.

  11. Oryza

    Looks like gonna be a nice story.. hope u keep translate it

  12. notsane009

    Hey can u tell me what’s the difference between vitality, Dexterity, Endurance and health.

    • according to the Diablo Wiki, Vitality is a primary attribute of the character, it affects the maximum health. Dexterity is an attribute that affects the defense and dodge of the character.Endurance affects the number of fights Fei can get into and his speed of traveling. I believe that was something author made. And Finally, Heath is…. Well, Health! If the health goes to 0, the character dies. Hope this helped you!

  13. Wtf…. first he was thrown to some unknown world now it become a game world?

  14. this novel is one of the strangest I have ever read

  15. Maybe what he learns here can be carried over

  16. AncientAnimeLover

    Yes I am very confuse as I never played or heard of this Game before. So the Author is using references from a Diablo Game into his novel? And its not a fanfiction but based on Alexander the King? This is kinda weird…
    Is this like “Farm in another world” where he gets transported to another Space to level up? So Fei pretty much leveled up a lot and its still chapter 4? That’s cheating! Going to another space deminsion to level up a lot in one chapter is…weird lol

  17. EaterOfNovels

    Wow. What a novel! Thanks~~

  18. gboY

    the heck, i just tried this, at first of this chap i was confused but now im interested all of a sudden,

  21. This sounds like “Bringing the farm to live in another world”

  22. Chris

    This isn’t Diablo. This is Diablo 2! I sure hope they bought the expansion. lol.

  23. Narcolepticmunchkin

  26. Djenny Floro

    Thank you for translating this novel, I really love it!

  27. AlienPoison

    This is not realistic enough >_>, the mysterious force that stopped him from entering+the dialogue & all ste game like and can be achieved through Virtual Reality games. Even the NPCs haven’t achieved the lowest level of artificial intelligence(dog-like intelligence) and are only automated and a bunch of programmes, author’s imagination is too poor.
