Reader - Chapter 148: Beyond
Proofreaders: Makarovfey and Spirin
-Yeon Jeung: I know you’re strong, but Beyond is their territory. You might die before you reach the guild house.
Yeon Jeung continued the persuasion.
Beyond City was the territory of the Dokgo Guild.
He is likely to die before arriving at the guild house.
-Soo Hyuk: What if it’s not the guild house? Isn’t it okay as long as there’s an uproar in their territory?
It doesn’t have to be the guild house.
A place that symbolizes the Dokgo Guild is enough.
-Yeon Jeung: No matter what I say, you’re going, right?
-Soo Hyuk: Yes.
-Yeon Jeung: I got it. And thank you
In the end, Yeon Jeung answered after giving up the persuasion.
-Soo Hyuk: Thank you. I’ll contact you later.
Soo Hyuk ended his whispering with Yeon Jeung.
And soon, Soo Hyuk was able to find a house with a blue roof.
Knock… . Knock
Soo Hyuk knocked on the door and shouted.
After a while, the door opened and Leong, a man of reliable size, appeared.
“Who are you?”
“Ah, I came under Hogar’s request. [The Diary of Lera… ”
“Ah, that! I forgot about it. Wait a minute.”
Leong cut off Soo Hyuk’s words and went inside.
And after a while, Leong came out with a book.
Soo Hyuk sees the book brought by Leong and smiles.
He smiled while looking at [The Diary of Leras the Hunter] because it was emitting white light.
“Here you are.”
Leong presented the book and Soo Hyuk received it from him.
Soo Hyuk said farewell and headed back to the library.
Soon Soo Hyuk was able to reach the library.
“I’ve got it. Here.”
Soo Hyuk showed the book to Hogar.
[You have completed the quest Librarian Hogar’s Request’.]
Then, a message of completion of the quest appeared along with Hogar’s thanks.
After confirming the message, Soo Hyuk told Hogar.
“Can I read it right away?”
“Yes, of course.”
At Hogar’s words, Soo Hyuk immediately entered the library.
Then he sat at his desk and thought while opening [The Diary of Leras the Hunter.]
‘There aren’t any other books that have been rented besides this, right?’
He felt something ominous.
‘No. If there were more, he wouldn’t have told me about this book alone.’
Hogar picked up [The Diary of Leras the Hunter].
If there were more books which had been borrowed, he wouldn’t have picked up only this.
Soo Hyuk focused on the book and after a while he was able to read it all.
[Wisdom rises by 1.]
[You have read all the books in the Dorus Library.]
[Title Acquired: The Conquer of Dorus Library]
[You have conquered six libraries.]
[Title Acquired: One who likes Books – 5.]
When Soo Hyuk closed the book, a message appeared, and he was relieved seeing the message.
Fortunately, there was only one book that was rented, [The Diary of Leras the Hunter].
Soo Hyuk got up, returned the book, and left the library.
Then, he stepped on to the warp gate and opened his character window.
Level: 204 EXP: 7%
Health: 111600 Mana: 93600
Power: 40 (+10)
Agility: 35 (+16)
Health: 1108 [554 (+10)]
Wisdom: 4680 (+10)
When he left the Hard Rock Library yesterday, Soo Hyuk’s Wisdom was 4450.
‘It has risen quite a lot.’
230 points in one day.
‘How much has the attack power increased with this level?’
Soo Hyuk wondered how much the damage would have increased.
After seeing his Wisdom stat, Soo Hyuk opened his titles window.
-The Conqueror of Dorus Library (Wisdom +80)
-One Who Likes Books- 5 (If you read the book, you will get additional stat experience)
‘Is Wisdom determined by the size of the library as well?’
The Dorus Library provided more Wisdom than the Kale and Demir libraries.
It seemed that the amount of Wisdom that rises depends on the size of the library.
‘This hasn’t changed.’
In the case of the title [One Who Likes Books], there was no change. It was the fifth title, so I wondered if something else had been added or the explanation changed, but no.
Arriving at the Warp Gate, Soo Hyuk closed the titles window and the character window.
“Where are you going?”
Asked the wizard NPC.
“The Beyond City of the Pade Kingdom.”
Kerita, a member of the Dokgo Guild, cast Ice Spear on the fire lizard in front of her.
After 3 seconds, the casting bar disappeared and Ice Spear appeared.
The Ice Spear quickly flew to the fire lizard and exploded.
At the same time of the explosion, the size of the flame emanating from the fire lizard’s back was reduced.
And perhaps because of that, the fire lizard made a strange scream and then started running towards Kerita.
“Ice Ball! Lurum!”
Kerita flew an ice ball at the fire lizard and called Lurum.
Lurum, who was waiting, cast an Ice Shot on Kerita’s call.
The ice arrow blew up in the fire.
It exploded, and the size of the flame at the back of the fire lizard was greatly reduced.
Is it because of the size of the flame has become smaller? Is that the source of his power?
The speed of the fire lizard was significantly slowed down.
Kerita cast an ice chain on the slow fire lizard.
Ice chains appeared from her wand and entwined around the fire lizard.
Soon, the flame on the back completely disappeared and the fire lizard collapsed.
“Heal! Mana Restore!”
When the fire lizard fell, Nina the Healer who was waiting in the back, approached and restored the health and mana of Kerita and Lurum.
Kerita said while watching the restoration of health and mana.
“Shall we take a break? It has already been 2 hours.”
Thanks to Nina, there was no shortage of health and mana, and they were able to hunt constantly.
However, even if the mana and health were full, the mental strength was not.
They were very tired from the long hunt.
At Kerita’s words, Lurum and Nina responded in turns.
After hearing the two’s reply, Kerita sat down.
“Did you see the post yesterday by Yeon Jeung?”
“Yes, I saw it.”
“Did the real Gilma-nim do that?”
As they took a break, the three began to talk.
The topic of the conversation was, of course, an article posted by the Guild Master titled “Lilith”.
“Yes, I saw Lilith joined the guild.”
“Then, will they really declare war?”
“Ah, as you see they haven’t done it yet, would they really try that?”
It was then.
[The Reader Guild has declared war.]
[The Reader Guild is now hostile.]
[ Infamy will not increase even if you kill Reader Guild members.]
The message appeared, and Kerita, Lurum, and Nina, who saw the message, spoke in embarrassed voices.
“They declared war?”
Kerita still talked to Lurum and Nina in an embarrassed voice.
“I know, right.”
“They really did… …”
“Should we continue to hunt? The other guilds come here often.”
“Let’s return to the guild house at once.”
*Let’s do that. ”
Kerita, Lurum, and Nina decided to stop hunting and return to the guild house.
“Ah, where are you going?”
“Right. The war has started, but if you run away, I will be sad.”
But when the three of them heard the voice, they frowned.
Kerita turned her head to see where the source of the voice was.
There were two men wearing the Reader Guild mark.
One of them was someone Kerita also knew.
‘Can we win?’
‘Even if it’s 3 to 2… …
We were ahead in numbers.
‘Nina is a healer.’
However, Nina cannot heal at this moment.
‘Can we catch Pigeon?’
Pigeon is strong.
‘No. We can’t win.’
Even if they joined forces with Lurum, it didn’t seem that they could beat the Pigeon. Besides, Pigeon was not alone.
“I think we have to retreat.”
After she quietly said her thoughts.
“Why? We are more in number.”
“He is Pigeon.”
Kerita answered Lurum’s question.
Lurum and Nina looked surprised when they heard Kerita’s words.
“Get the scroll ready. .”
“Maybe two of us will fail to return. Still, it’s better for at least one person to live rather than all to die here.”
Lurum and Nina answered.
“Do it now!”
Kerita ordered Lurum and Nina, while pulling out her scroll and tearing it apart. Wow!
The scroll was torn and a magic circle appeared underneath.
However, the magic circle was distorted by a dagger that flew and disappeared.
“… … Damn it.”
Kerita saw the dagger that destroyed her magic circle, a frown appeared on her face.
“Ah, I missed one.”
“Let’s kill them right away.”
“Because there were three of them, I thought they wouldn’t run.”
Kerita, who was looking at the dagger, looked to the side during the conversation between Pigeon and the other Reader Guild member.
Lurum was not visible.
“I think they were waiting for the declaration of war.”
“I see. As soon as the declaration of war happened, many guild members were attacked.”
Sunbyul nodded to Rooting’s words.
“What happened to the guild members who went to the Reader Guild house?”
“All are dead.”
“I heard it was Yeon Jeung, because he was strong.”
In response to Rooting’s answer, Sunbyul slightly narrowed his eyebrows.
It was because he did not like the fact that Yeon Jeung killed all four guild members.
It was at that time.
One of the five factions leading the Dokgo Guild, Ronia.
“What about Mureung and Kane?”
Ronia asked, naturally sitting next to Rooting.
“Kane said he wasn’t coming, and Mureung’s coming soon.”
Sunbyul answered Ronia’s question.
“Oh yeah? But why is he here?”
Ronia nodded her head, looked at the Salyeong and asked.
“Isn’t it a meeting for the heads?”
This time, all the heads of factions have gathered together.
Sunbyul was head of a faction, and Rooting was also the head of a faction.
But that wasn’t the case for Salyeong.
“Haha, sister. Don’t worry! When the time comes, I will tell you about it.”
Salyeong replied with a laugh at Ronia’s words.
It was then.
“I’ll go out for a while and come back.”
Rooting moved away from his spot.
At Rooting’s sudden words and actions, not only Sunbyul, but also Ronia and Salyeong looked at Rooting with puzzled eyes.
“It is said that a Reader Guild member has appeared.”
Rooting replied to the three pairs of eyes full of wonder.
“Where is he? Are you sure he is here?”
Sunbyul asked Rooting.
“Yes, he came out of the Warp Gate and is heading towards the guild house.”
“Huh, is it that crazy guy Yeon Jeung?”
“Since it’s a wizard, it doesn’t seem like he is Yeon Jeung. I will grab him right away.”
Rooting replied with a smile and went out of the room.
