Reader - Chapter 167: New Guild House
‘It’s different in the city.’
The name and entry conditions were the same but the size of the library was quite different due to the difference between the size of the city and the village.
After checking out the exterior, Soo Hyuk headed for the entrance.
“Good morning. I want to use the library.”
Soo Hyuk said hello to the librarian NPC at the entrance.
“Yes. You can use it.”
“It’s really large.”
Soon he was able to reach his destination.
“They are on the second floor.”
The library at the Principality of Eileen was quite unique.
There were no bookshelves on the first floor, only desks.
The bookshelves were on the second floor attached to each other on the perimeter and he could see all kinds of books there.
‘50 to 60 Books?’
He looked out for the books which emitted light.
There were no colored books, only white ones.
‘I will be able to conquer it by tomorrow at the latest.’
‘Ha, it would have been nice if there were lot of books like in Matab or Hard Rock.’
He thought so while he went to the second floor.
‘There are many books in the capital of the Fade Kingdom right?’
The entry criteria for admission into the Royal Place Library of the Fade Kingdom were terrifying.
Maybe more books than the Matab and Hard Rock.
There would be so many new books.
‘Shall I count how many books there are?’
Arriving on the second floor, he counted how many books there were exactly.
‘If I consider the thickness of the 54 books, it should take 14 hours.’
After checking out the number of books, he went down the first floor with five white books and sat at a desk.
And started reading.
[Wisdom rises by 1]
[Wisdom rises by 1]
As he closed the book, the message appeared and he tilted his head.
Unlike so far, there were two messages for the rise in wisdom.
Two messages for a rise in Wisdom appeared in the Edil Library of the Youth Kingdom as well, but he was reading a thick book then.
‘He didn’t even read something thick?’
The book was very thin.
‘It should be the effect of the title [One who Likes Books – 6]…’
Even though he read a thick book, the reason Wisdom rose by two was because of the title, [One who Likes Books-6] obtained in the Youth Kingdom.
‘Isn’t it going to give 5 or 6 for books like this later?’
What will happen when the titles of [One who Likes Books] keep accumulating? He imagined and smiled widely.
After the imagination, he started to focus on the book once again.
Kim Hyun-sung checked the time after having his lunch and sighed deeply.
“There are still 5 hours left.”
The current time was 12:58.
There was still more than 5 hours left before his death penalty was over.
“I have to connect again soon…”
Kim Hyun-sung hoped that the time would quickly pass.
That was because he wanted to meet Count Seon.
At first, he had hoped to talk with the Marquis of Beyond with his help.
But now his mind changed.
Anyways, the relationship with the Marquis was over.
It was better to spend time making a relationship with Duke Elaine rather than waste time talking to the Marquis of Beyond.
‘I have to solve it somehow.’
The only way to solve the situation right now was the Duke.
Kim Hyun-sung sat in front of the computer while vowing to establish a relationship with the Duke.
He was trying to collect information about Pangea by looking around the official website.
Kim Hyun-sung went around all the forums and checked the articles.
‘No, why are they so interested in the Yarion’s Wrath?’
He frowned while looking at the articles.
It was because all the forums were full of articles about the Yarion’s Wrath.
Whenever, he saw Yarion’s Wrath, Kim Hyun-sung became annoyed thinking about Soo Hyuk. He entered the Fade Kingdom forums.
And he titled his head.
‘What is this?’
He looked at the articles with a confused expression.
-Title: Wow, is the Dokgo Guild losing the representative guild position to the Reader Guild?
-Title: Representative Guild of Beyond has changed.
“The representative guild has changed?”
He began to check out the articles one by one.
It was to understand what was going on right now.
He went to read them and was startled.
The representative guild has really changed.
-Isn’t this Dokgo Guild’s real defeat in this war?
-They even lost the representative guild position. How did Dokgo Guild crash so low?
Kim Hyun-sung, after grasping the situation, could not say anything.
He blankly looked at the monitor and thought.
It was expected for the representative guild position to be taken away.
But he didn’t expect it so fast.
He thought it would take at least few days or weeks.
In the meantime he was planning to get a new representative guild position based on his relationship with Duke Elaine or to prevent the Marquis of Beyond from handing over the position.
But everything went wrong.
It was then.
The cell phone ran.
A call in this situation was like an ominous premonition.
He slowly turned his head and picked up the phone.
It was Salyeong who called him.
-Brother we are in trouble.
As soon as he answered, he heard his brother’s cry. He also seemed to have seen the posts on the forums.
-They came in here!
But to his next words, he titled his head.
“What are you talking about? Invasion? You weren’t talkin about the representative guild position?”
-The representative guild? What are you talking about? What’s going on?
He asked back.
Kim Hyun-sung frowned.
There seems to be more bad news.
“The Reader Guild got the representative guild position at 1pm.”
He answered back with a bitter smile.
-”But they came in? What does that mean?”
-Oh, that. The Reader Guild members raided our guild house just now.
At Salyeong’s answer, he frowned again.
“How did it go?”
-When they got there. There were people from Nonia Noona’s and Murang’s faction there but the number was small so they were immediately defeated.
-What the hell were the Rooting and Kane faction members doing? I haven’t heard anything from them lately. Have they talked to you about it?
Kim Hyun-sung thought to his question.
‘So where did they go?’
It was strange when you think about it.
‘In Kane’s case, it makes sense since he opposed the war.’
Kane had said that he was against the war and he will not properly participate.
But that wasn’t the case for Rooting.
“It doesn’t seem like he is hunting around”
Rooting said they went to hunt with the guild members.
However, he didn’t seem to be hunting when the Reader Guild’s guild members struck.
And in the first place, it was very strange that he didn’t come to the guild house just because he was hunting.
What on earth is Rooting doing?
Was it because he didn’t say a word? Salyeong called Kim Hyun-sung.
“Uh, they didn’t talk about anything.”
He answered back after his spirit came back on his brother’s call.
“I will hang up. I need to think about this for a moment. I will call you later.”
But as soon as he hung up the phone, the phone rang once again.
And he frowned after confirming the caller.
It was Kane who was calling. He knew why.
Kim Hyun-sung answered the phone.
“Okay. What’s up?”
-What’s up? You don’t know about the current situation?
Kane voice was quite aggressive.
It seems he made the phone call for the reason he expected.
Kim Hyun-sung swore inside his mind and started talking with Kane.

Soo Hyuk got up from his seat.
‘Shall I go now?’
It was 12 o’clock in no time.
It was time to head out.
Soo Hyuk went out of the library after returning the books.
‘There are 39 books left in the library.’
He though while heading towards the warp gate.
‘If the work is done quickly then he can conquer it today.’
He didn’t know how long the raid at the Dokgo Guild guild house would take, but if it ended quickly then he would be able to conquer the library today.
‘What will I get as the Title?’
“Where do you want to go?”
“Beyond, Fade Kingdom.”
“It will be 50 gold.”
Soo Hyuk took out the 50 gold from his inventory and handed it over and soon was able to reach Beyond.
“Oh, its Soo Hyuk.”
“I thought I would wait for him forever.”
Coming out of the warp gate, he was a little surprised hearing the conversation of the users.
‘Did they wait to see me?’
Listening to their conversation, it seemed as if the users were waiting at the warp gate to see him.
‘Are they like the users from yesterday?’
He quickly moved away from the attention of the users.
The destination was of course the new guild house of the Reader Guild.
“Where is he going?”
“I don’t think he is going to the Dokgo Guild guild house?”
“Is he going to see the Marquis?”
Fortunately, the users just followed him but did not come to him. So, with the users, Soo Hyuk was able to reach his destination.
‘Its really big.’
The building presented by the Marquis of Beyond as the guild house was a four story mansion.
The Reader Guild would be the first guild to have such a large guild house
Soo Hyuk went inside.
“Uh? gui..guild house?”
“What? Why is the guild house of the Reader Guild here…..”
Of course the users following him did not come inside.
The voice of the users was filled with surprise.
Soo Hyuk who left them behind entered the mansion and was able to see numerous people gathered in the hall of the first floor.
“Uh? Are you Soo Hyuk?”
One of the guild members found him and asked.
The gazes of all the members looking at different directions was now focused on him at his question.
“Yes. Good Morning. Nice to meet you.”
Soo Hyuk greeted the guild members.
“Good Morning! I am called Pigeon!”
Pigeon, the one who first discover Soo Hyuk approached him and greeted with a handshake.
“I am Reniana!”
“Hello! I am Yalo. I have been fan of yours since the days of the Devil Guild.”
Starting with Pigeon, he greeted the guild members in turns.
“Do you know where Yeon Jeung is?”
Asked Soo Hyuk.
“Go to the 4th floor and the room on the far left is his!”
Pigeon answered him and Soo Hyuk slightly bowed to express his gratitude and went to the fourth floor.
Arriving on the fourth floor, Soo Hyuk headed to the far left as Pigeon told him to.
Soo Hyuk, arriving at the far left, opened the door and entered.
“Uh, you are here!”
Yeon Jeung was there.
“When are you going to leave?”
Soo Hyuk asked as he sat on the sofa.
It takes 8 minutes to go the Dokgo Guild guild house from here.
Yeon Jeung has already completed the preliminary research.
“Since the announcement will be made at 1:00, we plan to depart at 12:53.”
TL Note: So he plans to reach one minute after the message. Wouldn’t it be more cool to leave at 12: 52 and reach at the exact moment as the announcement lol.
