[You have read all the books in the Hard Rock Library.]
[Acquired Title: Hard Rock Library Conqueror]
[You have conquered three libraries.]
[Acquired Title: Librophile 2]
Messages began to appear in succession.
‘It’s the same.’
It was like the message that appeared when he conquered the Magic Tower Library.
The only different thing was that the Magic Tower was changed to Hard Rock and that a 2 was added to the [Librophile] title. Soo-hyuk saw the message and opened the character window.
Level: 204 EXP: 7%
Health: 111600 Mana: 89000 Satiety: 79%
Power: 40 (+10)
Agility: 35 (+16)
Health: 1108 [554 (+10)]
Wisdom: 4450 (+10)
‘This title is also worht a 100 wisdom.’
The Wisdom stat, which had been 4350 before obtaining the title, became 4450.
Which meant, the title of the [Hard Rock Library Conqueror] was also a title that raised wisdom by 100.
Seeing his Wisdom stat, Soo-hyuk opened the title window to confirm the titles he had just acquired.
-[Hard Rock Library Conqueror]
–> Wisdom + 100
–> Additional stat experience gained when reading a book
The options for both titles were as expected.
The title [Hard Rock Library Conqueror] is the same as [Magic Tower Library Conqueror]
It was a title that raised Wisdom by 100, and the title of [Librophile 2] was no different from the title of [Librophile].
‘How effective is the additional experience option?’
In the case of the [Library Conqueror] titles, there was an additional 100 wisdom per title.
But the [Librophile] titles were different.
It was a title that increased his acquired experience, but it was not stated how much was added.
Soo-hyuk closed the title window.
Then, he got up, returned the books, and looked back inside the library.
After looking inside, Soo-hyuk exited the library and Soo-hyuk turned back and looked at it.
‘There is nothing left to read now.’
The Magic Tower Library was also completed already.
His goal was to travel around for reading.
But not at the Hard Rock Library anymore.
There was no reason to come to the Hard Rock Library left.
Soo-hyuk, who looked at the library and reminisced about his days at the Hard Rock Library, soon ended his thoughts and headed to the Warp Gate.
‘First to Kale.’
Soo-hyuk thought as he headed for the warp gate.
Libraries that could be used in the Raman Kingdom were “Kale,” “Dorus,” and “Demir.”
Soo-hyuk first destination was ‘Kale’.
“Where are you going?”
“’Kale’ of the Raman Kingdom.”
Soon after arriving at the Warp Gate, Soo-hyuk answered the wizard’s question.
“It’s 20 gold.”
“Here you go.”
Soo-hyuk took out 20 gold and handed it over.
The wizard who received the gold cast warp.
Soo-hyuk was able to arrive at the town of the Raman Kingdom,’Kale’.
Soo-hyuk first came out of the warp gate and looked at the atmosphere of the town.
The town ‘Kale’ was very quiet.
There were not so many users walking around.
‘It’s just good.’
He liked the quiet atmosphere very much.
Soo-hyuk smiled and started looking for the library.
‘He said it was right after leaving the warp gate.’
Soo-hyuk already knew the location of the library.
After exiting the Warp Gate, he walked straight to the right to reach the library.
‘… … Is it that?’
Soo-hyuk was soon able to find a building that was supposed to be a library.
However, even after discovering the library, Suhyuk’s expression was not bright.
Soo-hyuk stopped in front of the library.
‘It’s really small….’
The reason for his dark expression was the size of the library.
The library looked too small.
Still, thinking that the exterior might be small, Soo-hyuk toured the library.
It was to check the size.
Soo-hyuk, who went around the library and arrived at the entrance again, muttered with an embarrassed expression.
The library was as small as it seemed.
It took less than two minutes to circle it once.
“No, the size doesn’t matter.”
Soo-hyuk showed a embarrassing expression.
It wasn’t the size of the library that mattered, it was how many books there were.
Soo-hyuk approached the entrance of the library.
“I would like to use the library.”, and told the librarian NPC at the entrance.
“Yes, you can go in.”
There were no entry restrictions such as a item of proof or a minimum level.
The librarian NPC looked at Soo-hyuk once and answered with a smile.
Soo-hyuk bowed his head to the librarian NPC’s answer, and then went into the library.
Soo-hyuk entered the library so he could see the bookshelves.
Soo-hyuk looked at the bookshelf and frowned silently.
‘I did expect some, but there are too many overlaps here.’
The reason Soo-hyuk frowned was that all the books on the bookshelf had lost their light.
Losing the light meant that he had read them already.
In other words, the Kale Library had many books that overlapped with the Oren Library, Magic Tower Library, or Hard Rock Library.
Soo-hyuk took some steps forward and began to check the bookshelf.
The longer he checked the bookshelves the more Soo-hyuk’s face darkened.
Soo-hyuk, who soon checked to the last bookshelf, could not say anything.
He just looked at the bookshelf with a dark expression and thought.
‘It’s not even 20 books.’
There were less than 20 books glowing.
In other words, if he read a little, he could get the [Library Conqueror] title.
‘Let’s come back after lunch.’
Soo-hyuk, who was about to read a book, logged out.
The current time was 11:30.
It was because he thought that it was better to eat lunch a little earlier and read them in one go than to take a lunch break in the middle.
Soo-hyuk quickle emerged from the Capsule and settled for lunch with cereal just like breakfast.
And after brushing his teeth, he went straight back into the capsule.
Soo-hyuk, having a quick lunch and accessing Pangea, first counted the exact number of books left to read in the library.
Only 15 books were emitting lights.
‘It should be 3 hours.’
It was Soo-hyuk who normally read five books in an hour.
He would be able to finish them in 3 hours. Soo-hyuk took out five books and headed to the desk.
And as soon as he arrived at his desk, he started reading.
Soo-hyuk’s face, which was dark due to the small number of books, brightened again.
He said as he left.
Don’t set foot there.
Soo-hyuk was soon able to reach the end of the first book and closed it.
[Wisdom rises by 1.]
And a message appeared.
Soo-hyuk, who saw the message, was a little suprised.
‘Why did it already appear?’
It shouldn’t be the time for this notification to appear yet. He didn’t read enough books to gain a Wisdom stat point.
But why did the message suddenly pop up?
‘No way, the extra experience?’
Could it be because of the additional experience of the [Librophile 2] title acquired by conquering the Hard Rock Library?
After seeing the message, Soo-hyuk read the second book.
Of course, no message appeared in the second book.
Soo-hyuk immediately read the third book.
The third book also did not have a message.
Soo-hyuk opened the fourth book.
[Wisdom rises by 1.]
And when he closed the fourth book, a message appeared.
‘It got faster.’
He only had read three books, but his wisdom rose by one.
It wasn’t even that the book was thick, but it still went up.
‘Is the title effect this good?’
When he first conquered the Magic Tower Library and got the title of [Librophile], he didn’t perceive it.
But now, the effect of the title was clearly noticeable.
Soo-hyuk continued to read.
Time went on as well, and Soo-hyuk soon opened up his last book at the Kale Library.
Soo-hyuk soon finished to read the last book.
[You have read all the books in the Kale Library.]
[Acquired Title: Kale Library Conqueror.]
[You have conquered four libraries.]
[Acquired Title: Librophile 3]
When he closed the book, messages began to appear in succession.
They were the same messages as when he conquered Magic Tower and Hard Rock Library.
Soo-hyuk opened the character window while looking at the message, and then opened the title window to confirm the titles.
-Kale Library Conqueror
–> Wisdom +50
–> Additional stat experience gained when reading a book
Soo-hyuk, who confirmed the title, thought.
‘Is it because the library size is small?’
The additional Wisdom gained through the [Kale Library Conqueror] title was only half the amount of the Magic Tower Library and the Hard Rock Library.
Soo-hyuk looked down and saw the [Librophile 3] title.
‘Is there any difference in this too?’
Is there a difference between the [Library Conqueror] titles and the [Librophile] titles?
‘How can I find out?’
However, unlike the title of the conqueror, there was no specific number shown in the description, so it was impossible to confirm.
Soo-hyuk closed the title window and then the character window. Then he got up, returned the book, and left the library.
Soo-hyuk left the library and headed straight to the Warp Gate, as there were no memories he had accumulated here unlike in the Magic Tower Library or the Hard Rock Library.
Heading to the Warp Gate, Soo-hyuk recalled his second destination.
‘Now let’s go to Demir.’
The second library Soo-hyuk wanted to go to was the Demir Town Library.
“Where are you going?”
“It’s 5 gold.”
Soo-hyuk, who arrived at the warp gate, handed 5 gold to the NPC and warped to Demir.
Demir town’s atmosphere was just as quiet as Kale.
Soo-hyuk walked out of the warp gate to the library, smiling at the quiet atmosphere, thinking.
‘How many books will be here?’
How many books would there be in the Demir library?
‘I think it will be smaller and there will be even fewer because the admission conditions are easier.’
The admission conditions for the Demir Library were easier than those for the Kale Library.
As the entry conditions are easier, the library will be smaller.
Causing him to think there would even be less books than in the library before.
Soo-hyuk, who arrived in front of the library shortly afterward, knew that his thoughts were correct.
‘It’s very small… …
It was small. The Demir library was too small.
It was only 70% of the size of the Kale Library.
‘I don’t even need to check.’
There was no need to make a round. Soo-hyuk headed straight for the entrance.
“What are you doing here?”
When he arrived at the entrance, he was asked by the NPC.
“I came to use the library.”
“Oh, yes. Okay.” After hearing Soo-hyuk’s answer, the NPC looked at Soo-hyuk once and nodded. At the nod of the librarian NPC, Soo-hyuk entered the library.
And the moment he entered the library.
[You have read all the books in the Demir Library.]
[Acquired Title: Demir Library Conqueror]
[You have conquered five libraries.]
[Acquired Title: Librophile 4]
A message appeared.
