Reader - Chapter 146: Declaration of War
Yeon Jeung deeply sighed.
“How did it end up like this?”
The grand meeting on Monday did not end that day.
All because the discussion of the meeting was prolonged and continued till Tuesday. Finally, they decided to go to war with Dokgo Guild.
[Asgall-nim has left the guild.]
[Red Crayon-nim has left the guild.]
[Nedle left the guild.]
And the upcoming war with Dokgo Guild led to the withdrawal of some guild members.
Now that war had been decided, everyone’s strength was important.
The withdrawal of guild members was very regrettable.
“I’ll have to let them know first.”
Yeon Jeung opened his friends list.
Although it was planned to post about it on the official homepage, it was necessary to inform acquaintances about the war in advance.
– Yeon Jeung: Doran-nim, we’re going to war with the Dokgo Guild.
Starting with Doran, Yeon Jeung started whispering to his acquaintances who were online.
-Doran: What? Really?
And starting with Doran, the answers came from his acquaintances.
He whispered with them for a while.
After whispering, Yeon Jeung closed his friends list and thought.
‘I have to tell Soo Hyuk, too.’
He had to inform Soo Hyuk about the war against the Dokgo Guild.
But Soo Hyuk, was not currently online in Pangea due to his dinner appointment.
Yeon Jeung logged out to tell Soo Hyuk about the current situation.
And as soon as he got out of the capsule, he picked up his cell phone and called Soo Hyuk
But Soo Hyuk didn’t answer the phone.
Yeon Jeung put down the phone.
“He will call back later.”
He will see the missed call and call back.
Yeon Jeung sat in front of the computer.
Then went to the official homepage and started writing.
Kim Seok-cheon, who was looking at the official homepage, tilted his head when saw the notification on the bottom right of screen.
“Did he post something again?”
It was notification about a new post because he had subscribed to Yeon Jeung.
“Is there a change?”
Yarion’s Wrath’s auction starts tomorrow.
Was there any change in the auction? Kim Seok-cheon, who thought so, quickly checked Yeon Jeung’s new post.
After confirming the title of the article, Kim Seok-cheon tilted his head once again.
-Title: Dokgo Guild’s Brutality.
It was because there was a word that he didn’t expect at all.
“Did they commit a crime again?”
Given the word brutality, it was clear that a crime had been committed. Kim Seok-cheon checked the post.
-Title: Dokgo Guild’s Brutality.
It is Yeon Jeung.
As you can see in the title, I posted this to inform you about the brutality of the Dokgo Guild.
Kim Seok-cheon frowned at the post which started with greeting.
‘Did Lilith Betray them?’
“The Dokgo Guild is great. Who would have expected them to win over the Vice-Guild Master.’
“Hey, Does this mean they were looking for his acquaintance? I guess she had almost taken Yarion’s Wrath to the Dokgo Guild.”
Kim Seok-cheon, who was thinking about many things while reading, was surprised to read the last part of the post.
‘You’re going to hold them responsible for this?’
I thought the reason of post was to ask Dokgo Guild to apologize but the reason of post was not to receive an apology.
‘They are going to fight?’
He said, “I will hold them responsible.” The post did not state what they want to do. It means they are directly going to use force.
Against the Dokgo Guild? Had the gap narrowed this much before he knew it?’
This is not the first time that the Dokgo Guild and the Reader Guild are against each other.
In the past, the Reader Guild and the Dokgo Guild had fought, too.
Of course, to say precisely, it was a battle between the Dokgo Guild and the Anti-Dokgo Union, at the center of which was the Reader Guild.
At that time, the Dokgo Guild surrendered.
Because no matter how powerful the guild was, they were not able to stand against so many guilds.
But now there is no union like then.
It was purely a war between guilds.
‘They have no choice but to declare war.’
Not just a regular guild member, but a Vice-Guild Master who is a second in command betrayed them.
The situation was too serious to end with just an apology.
Anyway, they have no choice but to declare war because of this.
‘But there’s a possibility if Yeon Jeung catches Rooting.’
The war between guilds is determined by the number and level of guild members.
Therefore, Dokgo Guild was very likely to win the war.
But the Reader Guild’s chances of winning the war were not zero.
The number and level of guild members were important, but the strength of the strongest member was also quite important.
The Reader Guild’s strongest player was, of course, the Guild Master Yeon Jeung. However, the strongest player in the Dokgo Guild was not the Guild Master, Sunbyul.
The strongest player in the Dokgo Guild was the Vice-Guild Master, “Rooting”.
What if Yeon Jeung catches Rooting?
Reader Guild’s chance of winning the war increases.
‘Good for me anyway.’
Kim Seok-cheon smiled.
‘It seems that I am going to make some money after a long time.’
War was a great way to make money.
Soo Hyuk, who returned to his room after dinner, first checked his cell phone.
There was a missed call from Yeon Jeung.
Soo Hyuk immediately called back Yeon Jeung.
While listening to the ringtone, Soo Hyuk thought.
‘What could have happened?
The missed call meant the meeting was over.
I am curious how the meeting ended.
While he was thinking, the ringtone stopped and he heard Yeon Jeung’ voice.
“How did it go?”
Soo Hyuk asked as soon as Yeon Jeung answered the phone.
Yeon Jeung answered Soo Hyuk’s question.
Soo Hyuk asked when he heard that Yeon Jeung was sorry.
-Yeah, we have decided to fight because the Vice-Guild Master has betrayed us and entered a hostile guild.
-By the way, where are you now?
“Me? I’m in Raman kingdom now.”
-Well, Soo Hyuk.
-I’ve been thinking about it.
Soo Hyuk frowned and asked Yeon Jeung back.
Because he felt something negative in the voice of Yeon Jeung.
-Why don’t you leave the guild and stay outside the Pade kingdom for a while?
“What are you talking about?”
-Not what I wish to say, but this war, we’ll probably lose. Although I knew we would lose, I had no choice but to declare war.
-We’re gonna lose anyway. I don’t want to hurt you.
Yeon Jeung didn’t want to hurt Soo Hyuk in a war they were going to lose.
Soo Hyuk did not immediately answer Yeon Jeung.
He was thinking with his mouth closed for a moment.
Soon after thinking, Soo Hyuk called Yeon Jeung.
“By any chance, will I get in your way?”
-No, what do you mean get in our way? It would be very helpful if you were there. It’s because I’m so sorry. You’re going to go through a war as soon as you got here. Besides, it’s not a war we’ll win. 3.—
“I’m sorry, Yeon Jeung. I’ll have to take part in the war.”
“Don’t even think about it. Don’t try to convince me. I’ve already decided.”
Yeon Jeung was silent for a while after hearing Soo Hyuk’s firm voice.
“When are you going to declare war?”
Soo Hyuk asked.
You can declare war using the guild system.
And if you declare war, the Infamy will not rise even if you kill each other.
That’s why the war between guilds was mostly carried out by a war declaration system.
-I’m thinking of doing it tomorrow at lunch.
Yeon Jeung answered Soo Hyuk’s question.
-But Soo Hyuk, I’m really fine.
“Yeon Jeung, it’s already been decided.”
-… …Thank you.
After that, Soo Hyuk, talked about this and that with Yeon Jeung and after finishing the phone call, thought.
“It would be so much more difficult than the case with the Devil Guild, right?
There was no crisis when it was the Devil guild. It was so easy.
It was so easy to kill them.
But not the Dokgo Guild.
Although it has lost its reputation, it is the Dokgo Guild who was once called the strongest guild of Pangea. Individual guild members were excellent, and above all, there were several rankers.
If you take it as lightly as the Devil Guild’s case, you’ll pay dearly.
‘I need to read more seriously, right?’
Wisdom rises when he reads a book.
And as a wizard Soo Hyuk becomes stronger as the Wisdom increases.
In other words, reading books was the way to become stronger.
‘Since there’s also a Legendary Weapon.’
There was also the legendary weapon
“Magic Master Ryan’s Wand” should have higher efficiency as the stat was higher.
After thinking so, Soo Hyuk checked the time.
‘It’s nine o’clock.’
Soo Hyuk walked into the capsule.
Originally, he was going to read a book in reality today.
But he has changed his mind.
As soon as he logged in, Soo Hyuk went around the bookshelf and took out white books
Then came back to the desk and started reading.
Sunbyul thought while leaning back on his chair.
‘How would this guy react?’
‘It’s should be time for him to react.’
He was curious how he would put him in trouble.
It was just then.
-Rooting: We’re in trouble.
A whisper came from Rooting.
Has Yeon Jeung finally did something?
-Sunbyul: What’s going on?
-Rooting: Looks like a war.
-Sunbyul: What? War?
-Rooting: Yes, Yeon Jeung posted something and it seems that he wants to fight.
Hearing Rooting’s whisper Sunbyul frowned without saying anything.
-Sunbyul: I’ll go out for a moment.
Then logged out after whispering to Rooting.
Kim Hyun-sung, who came out of the capsule, sat in front of the computer and checked Yeon Jeung’s post.
Kim Hyun-sung mumbled softly after reading the entire post.
He thought since they have public opinion on their side, they would play with the media.
But they didn’t. It was not that they did not have public opinion on their side, but what they intend to do was to use force rather than manipulating the media.
“What is he thinking about?”
What was in his head?
“They are not gonna receive help from the other guilds, are they?”
Are they by any chance trying to get help from other guilds like the Hoarang guild?
“No, then our allies will join, too. There’s no way they don’t know that.”
In the past after losing to the Guild union, which gathered around the Reader Guild, the Dokgo Guild created friendly relationships with many guilds.
If the Reader guild attracts other guilds, Dokgo Guild will also attract friendly guilds.
If they fight after increasing allies, the Dokgo Guild would win.
In other words, they won’t do a stupid act like attracting other guilds.
“Is it because you think you can win?”
If so, where did he get the confidence to start a fight?
“Could it be because of that boy named Soo Hyuk?”
Kim Hyun-sung frowned at that sudden thought.
Soo Hyuk may be the reason because he was the focal point of the current situation.
He wondered if the reason Yeon Jung decided to enter a war without manipulating the media is because of Soo Hyuk.
“Yeah, it is possible.”
It was Soo Hyuk, who drove the Devil Guild until the dissolution.
He may have declared war on them by trusting the ability of Soo Hyuk.
Kim Hyun-sung grinned.
“War, I can trample them down.”
