Reader - Chapter 169: Apology
Arriving at the subspace, Soo Hyuk went over to the warp magic circle and checked the time.
‘It’s enough to conquer it.
Should I be grateful?
Soo Hyuk raided the Dokgo Guild and it did not take much time to return to the guild house.
If he focuses on reading from this moment on, he can fully conquer the Edil Library.
Arriving at the warp magic circle, Soo Hyuk warped to the Edil Library in the Principality of Eileen.
[Wisdom rises by 1]
[Wisdom rises by 1]
A message appeared, Soo Hyuk checked the time before checking the message.
Soo Hyuk smiled seeing the time.
He had enough time to read the one last book and only one book was left.
Soo Hyuk opened the last book.
And after exactly 13 minutes, Soo Hyuk finished the last chapter.
[Wisdom rises by 1]
[Wisdom rises by 1]
[You have read all the books in the Edil Library.]
[Title acquired: ‘Conqueror of Edil Library – 3’]
[You have conquered eight libraries.]
[Title acquired: ‘One Who likes Books – 7’]
‘There is a number one the title.’
Soo Hyuk thought looking at the title.
If he conquered the libraries with the same name then what message would appear, the answer was numbers will be added.
Soo Hyuk suddenly felt strange and tilted his head.
‘3? Its not 2? Why is it 3?’
The title of the conqueror was marked with 3 instead of 2.
‘Is there one more library called Edil?’
It couldn’t have gone straight from 1 to 3.
There seems to be another library named Edil.
Soo Hyuk’s opened his character windows after clearing his doubts.
Strength: 40 (+10)
Agility: 35 (+16)
Vitality: 1108 [554 (+10)]
Wisdom: 5011 (+10)
After confirming his Wisdom, Soo Hyuk opened the titles window with a satisfied smile and confirmed the two titles he had just acquired.
-Conqueror of Edil Library- 3: Wisdom +90
-One who likes Books – 7: If you read a book, you will get additional wisdom stat.
‘How many will I get now?’
Soo Hyuk’s interest was solely in the title ‘One who likes Books.’
‘Even if it doesn’t increase by 3 at once. It would increase more often right?’
Its not unconditional, even now reading thick books sometimes increased the wisdom stat by 3.
Now that one more title of ‘One who likes Books’ is added, its expected that it will rise by 3 often if not always.
Soo Hyuk closed the title and character windows.
‘Its true there is more compensation.’
Wisdom rises when he reads a book.
This is a reward.
Originally, Soo Hyuk read because he liked it but since there are rewards, he felt more accomplishment than otherwise.
‘If the compensation goes away…’
He was worried.
What if there are no rewards?
‘Will it be as enjoyable as before?’
Can he feel comfort and accomplishment if the rewards disappeared.
Its very big difference.
Suok! (sound effect)
He finished his thoughts and got up from his seat.
He returned the book and then logged out.
Soo Hyuk came out of the capsule and approached the computer.
He said that they will post an apology.
He received a whisper at 9 o’clock when he was immersed in reading.
They will post an apology from the side of the Dokgo Guild.
Of course, it was not from Sunbyul.
The one writing is the new Guild Master.
It was Kane.
Sunbyul left the guild after giving up the Guild Master position.
Of course he didn’t leave alone.
He led his faction and left.
Soo Hyuk entered the official website, while recalling that Yeon Jeung said that Sunbyul will create a new guild sooner or later.
Then he searched for the apology posted by Kane.
-Title: Hello, this is Kane
This is Kane. The one who will be leading the Dokgo Guild in the future.
This war was clearly the fault of our Dokgo Guild.
We will leave Beyond and make sure that this never happens again.”
Kane’s apology was pretty neat.
He had no excuses.
To be honest, Kane opposed the war and didn’t even participate in it.
He could have appealed for no resentment against him but there were no such phrases at all.
-Weather: Wow, its a real neat apology. I was wondering if there would be any excuses.
-Dark Magician: As far as I know, I heard that Kane was opposed to the war. It seems a bit unfair for him to apologize.
-Takeoung Ji: What happened to the Sunbyul faction? They ended up withdrawing? I thought they would appear with the apology but there is no mention of them here.
Soo Hyuk who checked the reactions of the users stood up from his seat.
And after checking the time, he thought about heading to the bed.
Finally, the auction of Yarion’s Wrath will end today.
‘How far will it go?’
Arriving at the bed, Soo Hyuk went to sleep while thinking about the amount of the bid.
‘Is the gold ready?’
Oh Jae Yong asked while looking at the documents.
“Yes, we have purchased an additional 20 million gold.”
Myung Seok Yoon who was next to him, nodded and answered.
“What about the reporters?”
“I caught them at 8:20.”
Upon hearing his answer, Oh Jae Yong nodded his head.
And he silently submitted the papers and soon they were approved. Oh Jae Yong got up from his seat.
“I will go and get it, Where is it right now?”
“It’s in Hard Rock.”
“Ah, the mercenary city?”
“I have a scroll so I will go. I will see you in front of the warp gate.”
Yoo Myeong Seok left the room while answering Oh Jae Yong’s words.
Oh Jae Yong headed towards the capsule.
Upon logging in to Pangea, a familiar celestial landscape came into view.
-Leah: Where are you?
-Hunting King: Heaven. I will stop by Hard Rock after a while so I am getting ready. Lets start around 11 o’clock.
The Hunting King answered Leah’s question and opened his inventory. Then he took out the warp scroll and warped to the “Lake of Beginning” where the entrance to the middle earth was located.
Soon the landscape changed, the Hunting King guarded himself from his surroundings with his sword and shield.
He looked around exhaled a sigh of relief.
[Lake of Beginning], the place where the portal was located was a place full of monsters because of the water.
Among them were the monsters that were difficult to deal with all alone.
But fortunately the monsters were not visible right then.
The monsters currently drinking the water were all non-hostile ones.
The Hunting King headed towards the lake in peace. He went into the lake and swam down to the bottom.
[You have entered the Middle Earth.]
He arrived at Middle Earth through the portal and opened his inventory once again. Then he used the scroll to warp to Hard Rock.
As soon as he stepped out of the warp gate, he could see Yoon Myeong Seok approaching him.
He immediately went to him and was handed over 40 millions gold.
“Thanks for your efforts.”
“No. Then I can go.”
Yoon Myung Seok logged out with a smile.
As he went off, the Hunting King began moving towards the auction house.
It was to confirm the bidding amount of Yarion’s Wrath.
“Selling Gold! 12000 won per 100 gold! Its Cheap! Cheap!”
“I will sell 3000 gold for 31000 won! Its the lowest rate. I wont be selling in installments!”
Soon after, he was able to arrive at the auction house..
The Hunting King moved towards the left where the real time auction took place and soon the real time auction window opened.
“I don’t even need to search.”
He, who tried to search for Yarion’s Wrath, clicked on the Yarion’s Wrath in the main menu.
Physical Attack Buff: 5
Magical Attack Buff: 3
Hidden Options: 2
The sword containing the wrath of the magic swordsman Yarion. It’s made with the magical ore Ryodram which amplifies magic.
-Current Bid: 13,000,120 Gold
-Time Remaining: 10:01
Then the information about Yarions Wrath and the bid appeared.
‘It’s a really coveted item.’
‘13 million Gold…’
Then he looked at the bid amount.
With 10 hours left, the bid amount has reached 13 millions gold.
‘40 million gold would be enough.”
‘I will see it again in 10 hours.’
The Hunting King left the auction with a smile.
Soo Hyuk thought while looking at the library in front of him.
‘How long will it take here?’
Presently Soo Hyuk was in another library called Okas in the Principality of Eileen
‘Looking at the size, it should be over soon.’
Because this was a village, the library wasn’t that big.
He felt that he could conquer it very soon.
Having finished checking out the appearance, Soo Hyuk moved towards the entrance.
“Good Morning. I came to use this library.”
Soo Hyuk said his greetings to the librarian briefly and went straight inside.
[You have read all the books in Okas Library]
[Title acquired: ‘Conqueror of Okas Library.’]
[You have conquered nine libraries.]
[Title acquired: ‘One who likes Books -8.’]
A message appeared as soon as he entered, ‘Ah.’
Soo Hyuk spat out in his heart, then turned back and came out of the library.
The librarian looked at him with a puzzled look
Soo Hyuk felt the mysterious gaze of the Librarian and headed towards the warp gate while confirming the titles.
-Conqueror of Okas Library: Wisdom +70
-One who Likes Books – 8: If you read a book, you will get additional wisdom stat.
Looking at the titles, Soo Hyuk thought.
‘I felt this would happen…’
The next destination was the Logan Library in Youth Kingdom.
‘I feel that it would be conquered again like this.’
It was just a feeling but the message of conquest appeared as he seemed to be about to enter the library.
“Where would you like to go?”
“Logan in Youth Kingdom.”
“It will be 30 gold.”
Arriving at the warp gate, Soo Hyuk warped to Logan.
And went to the library.
“I want to use the library.”
“Yes you can use it.”
After arriving at the library, Soo Hyuk greeted the librarian and went into the library.
[You have read all books in Logan Library.’
[Title acquired: ‘Conqueror of Logan’s Library.’]
[You have conquered 10 libraries.]
[Title acquired: ‘One who Likes Books – 9’]
As expected, message of conquest appeared upon the entry.
Soo Hyuk who was looking at the message, came out of the library.
And thought while heading towards the warp gate.
‘If the other libraries are also like this….”
There are still many libraries which are available.
But what if they are conquered at the money on entry?
“Well I have to complete the quest……”
Soo Hyuk was in a situation where he had to read books because of the Special quest, [Dragon’s Wisdom], which would increase his Wisdom stat.
If the other libraries are also conquered. It will become difficult to complete the quest.
Soo Hyuk stopped with a sudden thought.
