The Red Snakes, which used to be 3, began to increase one by one as they headed to their destination.
When he arrived at his destination, there were a total of 6 monsters.
Lilith responded, and Yeon-jeung turned around. As soon as he stopped moving, the Red Snake’s attacks began. Yeon-jeung was accustomed to wielding shields and smacking the heads of the Red Snakes with it.
“Thunder God’s Fury!”
While Yeon-jeung was pulling Red Snakes’ aggro, Lilith, who finished casting, casts Thunder God’s Fury.
“How long do you want to continue?”
After she killed all six red snakes, Lilith asked.
“Well, we can also stop now?”
At Lilith’s question, Yeon-jeung thought for a moment and then asked.
“Yes! I’m pretty tired, especially after that dungeon exploration today.”
“Then let’s stop for today. Are you going to the safe zone?”
“No, I’ll log out right here!”
Lilith shook her head and answered.
“See you tomorrow!”
And she logged out after saying goodbye.
Yeon-jeung silently stared at the place where Lilith was.
Yeon-jeung shook his head with a short sigh, opened his inventory and pulled out the scroll.
It was a warp scroll that could teleport him to the guild house. Yeon-jeung ripped the scroll, moved to the guild house, and headed to his room.
‘Before logging out…’
Upon arriving at the room, Yeon-jeung opened an inventory. It was to check was something before logging out.
‘I should check the map.’
Yeon-jeung pulled out the map he got as a reward from ‘Ryan’s Dungeon’. Then he opened the map and checked it.
Yeon-jeung, who opened the map and started checking from the left, exclaimed admiration as soon as he started.
“The Forest of Enchantment?”
It was because there was a known area in the lower left.
“There are places like this when you pass it.”
Yeon-jeung moved his gaze and identified unexplored areas that he explore when he crossed the swamp of enchantment.
It was a legendary map, so it was very detailed, unlike ordinary maps.
“The lowest ones are at 600…”
Even the names and levels of the monsters that appeared were listed.
This information might seem unimpressive, but one could obtain more detailed information about the monsters from the NPCs through the name.
Using the levels one could also determine the difficulty of the maps. Therefore name and level were more important information than it might seem.
“There are three dungeons?”
It wasn’t just the monster’s information on the map. The map also showed the location of dungeons. It was not one, but a total of three.
“First reward… …
Because, no one has cleared the dungeon yet.
Yeon-jeung smiled at the thought of being able to obtain the first reward and checked the map.
Yeon-jeung, who was checking the map, quickly exclaimed confused. This is because a familiar word was seen on the map.
That word was Hayden. Hayden, what Soo-hyuk was looking for, was in the right corner of the map.
Yeon-jeung exclaimed and opened the friend’s window. Then he whispered to Soo-hyuk.
[Wisdom rises by 1.]
Soo-hyuk was startled while looking at the message. And after returning the five books that had lost their light, they headed to the bookshelf.
It was then.
A whisper came from Yeon-jeung.
-Soo-hyuk: What is it?
After send the whisper and arriving at the bookshelf, Soo-hyuk began to pull out the shiny books he had not read yet.
-Yeon-jeung: Jackpot! Great news!
When he pulled out the book, Yeon-jeung whispered again.
How great can it be? It has been less than five hours since they split up. What big thing could have happened in the meantime?
‘Is it the map?’
Did he find a jackpot on the map?
-Soo-hyuk: What jackpot?
-Yeon-jeung: Found it!
Soo-hyuk was surprised by Yeon-jeung’s whisper.
-Yeon-jeung: It’s on the map I got.
-Yeon-jeung: Hayden’s location!
-Yeon-jeung: The way!
-Yeon-jeung: That is! I know the way.
Yeon-jeung’s whisper poured out.
-Soo-hyuk: How can I go there?
-Yeon-jeung: That’s a bit hard to explain in words, and I’ll show you it yourself! When can we meet?
Soo-hyuk lowered his head at Yeon-jeung’s whisper and looked at the book in his hand. Then, while thinking for a moment, he whispered to Yeon-jeung.
-Yeon-jeung: Yes, are you busy?
-Soo-hyuk: No, I’ve got time.
-Yeon-jeung: Okay! Then let’s meet now!
-Soo-hyuk: Can I go to the guild house?
-Yeon-jeung: No! Don’t come to the guild house! never!
At Yeon-jeung’s whisper, Soo-hyuk was puzzled. Perhaps there is a reason why he should not go to the guild house, because Yeon-jeung’s reaction was too strong.
-Soo-hyuk: Then where do we meet?
-Yeon-jeung: Are you a Hard Rock now?
-Yeon-jeung: Fade Empire, come to Reas Village.
-Soo-hyuk: All right.
Soo-hyuk ended the chat with Yeon-jeung. And while looking at the book with a very regretful expression, he put it back to where it was.
Soo-hyuk, who had left the book, left the library. And headed to the Warp Gate.
‘Is it because it’s night?’
Was it because midnight was nearing? There was no line at the Warp Gate, which one usually had to wait in line for.
Soo-hyuk warped right through the warp gate into the Fade Empire’s Reas Village.
Soo-hyuk looked around from the Warp Gate.
‘Why did you tell me to come to a place like this?’
Reas’ Warp Gate was empty. Not a single user was seen. Why did Yeon-jeung want to meet at such a place?
-Soo-hyuk: I’ve arrived. Where are you?
Soo-hyuk whispered to Yeon-jeung.
About 3 seconds after sending the whisper, Yeon-jeung’s voice came from behind.
“Why did you tell me to come to a place like this?”
Soo-hyuk asked Yeon-jeung.
Yeon-jeung scratched his head as he thought silently about Soo-hyuk’s question. Yeon-jeung, who stopped scratching and pondering, told Soo-hyuk.
“Yes, you should better know.”
“Let’s go first. To a quiet place.”
“What about the Devil Guild?”, asked Commander.
“The Devil Guild?”
Kefarm, sitting on the other side, replied with a question and showed with a bloody smile.
“They are completely scared.”
“What? Then they won’t accept the request?”
“Yes, they say they never take requests for work related to Soo-hyuk.”
“Even if we give them 50,000 gold for each kill?”
“Huh, how scared are they?”, Commander frowned.
50,000 gold was 5 Mio. ₩ in cash. Even with 5 Mio. ₩ they won’t accept the request?
“The Demon Guild is completely out. It’s all dead.”
“I know. But when do you plan to start?”
Kefarm nodded at Commander’s words and asked. Commander responded to Kefarm’s question after checking the time.
“It’s too late today. So, let’s start tomorrow morning. From 9 o’clock.”
“Okay. I will be ready by 9 o’clock.”
After the conversation, Commander and Kefarm faced each other and smiled.
“What? Lilith is selling information?”
Words that were completely unexpected flowed from Yeon-jeung’s mouth, and Soo-hyuk was shocked.
“I’m not completely sure yet.”
Yeon-jeung responded to Soo-hyuk’s surprised reaction.
“I will have the results soon. Tomorrow, at the latest in two days.”
“What if she is selling information?”, Soo-hyuk asked.
What if information was being sold as Yeon-jeung said?
“The Dokgo guild or the Solitude guild might approach you soon. The chances of them wanting to have a conversation with you are small. They will try to kill you.”
Lilith knew Soo-hyuk had Yarion’s Wrath. What if Lilith sold the information? The Dokgo guild would approach Soo-hyuk.
Of course, it was very likely that their intention was not a conversation.
“No, not Dogko, Lilith.”
Soo-hyuk said, shaking his head at Yeon-jeung’s words.
Yeon-jeung exclaimed, pondered for a while, and then said.
“I have to end it.”
What if Lilith sold the information? They couldn’t go together anymore.
“Not just anywhere, but even worse the Dogko guild.”
In addition, if the information was sold to the Dogko Guild it would be even worse.
Soo-hyuk couldn’t say anything to Yeon-jeung.
“Let’s see the map.”
As the atmosphere subsided, Yeon-jeung smiled and pulled out the map.
Then he spread the map on a table, lifted his finger and pointed to the right corner.
“This is the place you were looking for.”
Soo-hyuk looked at the right corner indicated by Yeon-jeung, where Hayden was.
“Here is the Forest of Enchantment that I know.”
Yeon-jeung said, pointing to the Forest of Enchantment in the left corner.
“To get to Hayden…”
Yeon-jeung again moved his finger toward Hayden and started pointing to the areas in between.
“You have to cross the Laygas Mountains, cross the Desert of Death, and go through three places to the Reika Forest.”
To get to Hayden from the Forest of Enchantment, one had to cross the Laygas Mountains, the Death Desert, and the Reika Forest.
“Before crossing the three areas after the Forest of Enchantment, you first have to reach it.”
An additional problem was that the road to the Forest of Enchantment was not easy.
“Even if you exclude the Rail Plains, which have become popular, you have to pass through five other regions to reach the Forest of Enchantment.”
“That’s very far.”
At Soo-hyuk’s words, Yeon-jeung nodded.
“Only reaching the Forest of Enchantment takes two days.”
“What? Two days?”
Soo-hyuk, who was looking at the map, raised his head at Yeon-jeung’s words and asked.
“Not even Hayden, but the Forest of Enchantment?”
“Yes, if you go straight, you might get there within a day if you hurry, but that’s nearly impossible.”
“The monsters there are no joke. It’s a level 500 area. You have to avoid it.”
“Then, until Haydn… …
Blurred Soo-hyuk looked at the map. The levels of monsters were on the map. The lowest monster was 600.
How is he supposed to get through the level 600 monsters when he even has to avoid the level 500 monsters?
“If I go now, it will take too long.”
Yeon-jeung asked. Soo-hyuk thought to Yeon-jeung’s question.
‘Is it necessary to do this now?’
He just found out About the quest.
It wasn’t a quest he had to complete soon.
‘How would I complete it if I go?’
In addition, getting there was a problem, too. Even the monsters on the way had to be avoided.
How would he be able to complete the quest, when he even had to avoid the monsters on the way?
“I thought about it.”
After pondering, Soo-hyuk told Yeon-jeung who was waiting for an answer.
“I’ll do it slowly. I don’t have to go right now. I don’t think I can make it. It’s enough just to figure out the way for now. Thank you.”
It was enough just to figure out how to get there. The quest didn’t run away, and he could work on it gradually.
“Yes, I thought so as well.”
Yeon-jeung nodded at Soo-hyuk’s words.
“Are you going to the library now?”
Then he asked.
“Or are you going hunting?”
Soo-hyuk replied with a smile to Yeon-jeung’s question.
“You already know.”
It was a question that had already been answered.
