Soo Hyuk looked at the notepad with a satisfied smile.
Libraries that were available right now were written on the front of the notepad, and libraries that were likely to be available after quests were written on the back.
‘This is enough.’
Soo Hyuk turned off his computer and got up from his desk and checked the time.
‘Shall we connect now?’
Three minutes ago, there was a call from Yeon Jeung.
‘It should be over now; I’ll see you in 5 minutes.’
Soo Hyuk entered Capsule and connected to Pangea.
As Yeon Jueng expected, the earthquake was over.
“Monsters are also gradually coming out.”
Various monsters such as Lizardmen, Akun Hippopotamuses and Big Crocodiles were coming out from the lake in the distance.
“Child of Darkness.”
Soo Hyuk summoned the ‘Child of Darkness’.
A special effect exploded and two appeared and started moving towards the monsters.
He had hunted with the ‘Children of Darkness’ for about two minutes, when Yeon Jeung connected. Soo Hyuk headed to the Aconia Mountains, the area after Heaven’s Lake, with Yeon Jeung. Since the ‘Children of Darkness’ took care of the monsters, Soo Hyuk, who had nothing to do, had a conversation with Yeon Jeung.
“Will natural disasters happen again?”
In addition to earthquakes, various natural disasters occur in Heaven’s Lake. The water in the lake overflows and the water rises, and storms sometimes overturn the surrounding terrain. Soo Hyuk, who had experienced an earthquake, wanted to experience a flood and storm as well.
“No, it won’t happen.”
Yeon Jueng shook his head at Soo Hyuk’s question. Once a natural disaster occurs, the natural disaster does not occur for at least several hours. In the current situation, they could not get caught by the monsters, and Yeon Jeung was thinking that they would be able to get out of the Heaven’s Lake safely before a natural disaster occurs. Yeon Jueng’s thoughts were exactly right. Thanks to the ‘Children of Darkness’, Soo Hyuk and Yeon Jeung never stopped walking. They were constantly moving and before a natural disaster occurred,
[You have entered the Aconia Mountains.]
They were able to reach the next destination, the Aconia Mountains. Soo Hyuk, who wanted to see other natural disasters such as a storm or flood, looked at the Heaven’s Lake with a regretful expression.
“But your level didn’t go up very much this time?”
Soo Hyuk, looking at the Heaven’s Lake, turned back and answered Yeon Jueng’s question.
Was it because of the level up? Or was it because the number of monsters was small. How? He leveled up more than 20 times in the Damp Wetlands, but only 10 times in Heaven’s Lake.
‘Can I get to 400 like this?’
There were eight areas left to the final destination, Hayden, including the Aconia Mountains. As he continued, his level up would be slower. So he was worried. Of course, he thought it would exceed 400, but he was afraid it won’t be 400.
‘Ah, I will get to 400.’
Soo Hyuk ended his worries.
“How long are you going to play today?”
And as if waiting, he answered Yeon Jeung’s question that flew in.
“12 o’clock. And you?”
“12 for me too!”
“Good. How far do you think we can go?”
“At the current speed, we’ll reach the Enchanted Forest around 9 o’clock.”
As it had been going, it would have taken two days to get to the Enchanted Forest. However, thanks to Soo Hyuk’s overwhelming force, the time was drastically shortened.
“I think we can enter the Lagas Mountains in about two hours.”
Yeon Jeung had gone to the Enchanted Forest, but turned back. Exactly how wide the Enchanted Forest was, and how long it would take to get to the next area, the Lagas Mountains, was unknown to Yeon Jeung. However, looking at the size of the Enchanted Forest on the map, it seemed that they could reach the Lagas Mountains. From the Lagas Mountains, he couldn’t even guess how long it would take to get to Hayden. It was because it was the first time. All he knew was the information and size of the monsters.
“I think we can arrive in Hayden tomorrow if there are no disasters like at the Heaven’s Lake.”
To get to Hayden from the Enchanted Forest, they had to go through the Lagas Mountains, the Death Desert, and the Reika Forest. What if a natural disaster occurs in those three areas like the Heaven’s Lake? It would take a huge amount of time. If not, they could get to Hayden tomorrow.
Ramos laughed slyly and saw numerous chimeras sleeping in the cave.
“It’s a day of disaster soon.”
The day he had been waiting for was coming. Now it’s time to see the results. Ramos turned back. Then he left the community and headed home. Ramos, heading home, frowned. It was because of a man standing in front of the house. A man wearing a black robe. Ramos knew very well who the man was. It was Erimen under the direct command of the master Ramos served.
“What is it?”
Ramos asked Erimen in an irritable voice.
“Oh, you are here.”
Erimen reached out to Ramos’s words and put his hand into his arms. Then he pulled out a small envelope and held it out.
“The master told me to convey this.”
Ramos silently received the envelope from Erimen.
“Then I’m done.”
[ T/N: Kinda difficult translation here, it originally said Then I’m 20,000 which was then converted to Then I’m this much which I took to be then I’m done]
When Ramos received the envelope, Erimen bowed slightly to say goodbye and disappeared through the warp.
[T/N: Originally translated to bowed his dog, so I took it as just bowing]
As Erimen disappeared and Ramos went into the house. Then he sat down on the chair and immediately checked inside the envelope.
What was in the envelope was a letter. Ramos began to read the letter. As Ramos read the letter, surprise and embarrassment appeared alternately. Soon after reading the letter, Ramos mumbled with an unbelievable expression.
“A ‘Child of Darkness’ appeared?”
The letter said that the actual dark magic, the ‘Child of Darkness’ appeared.
“It must not have been restored by the Dark Tower,It’s magic… …”
Ramos frowned. The ‘Child of Darkness’ is a lost magic. A lot of effort was put into restore it from the Dark Tower, but the restoration failed. It was a complex magic that even Ramos’ master, who sent the letter, could not restore.
[T/N: Restore here in this context is to bring back, i.e. the spell was lost and they tried to bring it back into existence]
“Who on earth has restored such magic?“
Lapis wouldn’t have reappeared. Lapis is a man from hundreds of years ago. No matter how long the life of wizards, it makes no sense to be alive for hundreds of years. Even if it is Lapis, the Arch-mage.
“Then did a descendant appear?”
Legend has it that Lapis’ legacy is hidden somewhere in the tower. What if the legend is true and someone has obtained Lapis’ legacy?
Ramos spat out. The only thing that was certain was that the ‘Child of Darkness’ had appeared, but nothing was certain. Ramos gave up his thoughts on the ‘Child of Darkness’ and turned his attention back to the letter. The letter didn’t just say that the ‘Child of Darkness’ had appeared.
“Shorten the time as much as possible…”
The day of disaster was scheduled for one week at the earliest, and two weeks at the latest. In the letter, it was written to advance the day of disaster. It wasn’t completely ready, but Ramos was going to follow the command.
Ramos got up from his seat. Then he left the house and headed to the cave.
‘It will take 4 days.’
[You have entered the Forest of Enchantment.]
A message appeared. Soo Hyuk couldn’t say anything after seeing the message. He simply opened the character window without a word and checked the level and experience.
After checking his level and experience, Soo Hyuk frowned and thought.
‘Will I not get to 400 even if I arrive at Hayden?’
He was worried in the Aconia Mountains, but it was only for a while. He thought there was no way he couldn’t get over 400. However, looking at the current situation, it seemed that he would not be able to shoot 400 even if he arrived at Hayden. Even if the monsters in the remaining areas are at higher levels, they are said to give more experience.
‘Well, even if I don’t level up, it’s okay as it is.’
Soo Hyuk decided to think positively and unraveled his frown. If his level isn’t 400, it’s fine. There will be fewer libraries available, but many have already been secured. Moreover, the lower the level, the lower the stat experience required to increase Wisdom by 1. In other words, when the level is low, more Wisdom can be raised. After thinking positively, Soo Hyuk continued to take steps toward Yeon Jeung with a smile.
“Oh, I’m tired.”
Yang Joo Hyuk stretched to get rid of his tiredness. Yang Joo Hyuk, who was slightly tired from stretching, checked the time.
[T/N: There’s an idiom here of “turned on his flag” but I changed it above as I gathered he was tired and stretched after working for so long]
“The day is already over… …”
Yang Joo Hyuk muttered, exhaling deeply through his nose. It was already approaching midnight.
Looking at the watch, Yang Joo Hyuk called Jang Yul.
“Where are the special users now?”
Jang Yul responded to Yang Joo Hyuk’s words and began to beat the keyboard.
“The Hunting King is in the 10th demon world.”
“How about Soo Hyuk?”
“Soo Hyuk… … uh?”
He paused in surprise. Yang Joo Hyuk laughed at Jang Yul’s surprise. He was just told to check the location of Soo Hyuk, but why did he act like that?
[T/N: There was an idiom in the above 3 sentences about “ the tensile strength spit out elasticity” but I had a hard time finding what they meant so I edited it to make it understandable that he was shocked]
“Team leader… …”
He looked at the monitor with a difficult expression He turned his head and called Yang Joo Hyuk.
“… … What?”
Yang Joo Hyuk responded to the call with anxious eyes at Jang Yul’s expression. And Jang Yul said.
“Soo Hyuk is in the Lagas Mountains right now?”
“What? The Lagas Mountains?”
“Why all of a sudden? Didn’t he go to the library?” Yang Joo Hyuk questioned Jang Yul’s words. Until yesterday, Soo Hyuk was conquering libraries. But why did he suddenly go to the Lagas Mountains?
“I do not know. There seems to be a quest, but the only thing I can check is the location…”
The security grade of information about Soo Hyuk, the subject of special grade management, was the highest. The only information he could know was the location.
“Where is Yeon Jeung?”
Of course, it was possible to get the information that way. You can use the people around Soo Hyuk.
It was a quick way to use library information to find out that Soo Hyuk, who only knows the location, is going to conquer the library.
“He is together with Yeon Jeung.”
Yeon Jeung’s information is not subject to special grade management, it was possible to see and read.
“But there is no quest?”
However, just because they were able to read it didn’t mean they found much. “Where are you going?” Jang Yul muttered looking at the monitor.
“Isn’t it possible they are going to Hayden?”
Yang Joo Hyuk frowned at Jang Yul’s words. The reason for the frown, it was because of the area called Hayden, near the Lagas Mountains. No, to be precise, it wasn’t because of Hayden. Hayden itself is not a problem.
“If he finds the Devil’s Nest and finds the entrance to the 10th demon world…”
The problem was the dungeon called the Devil’s Nest hidden in Hayden and the door of the 10th-demon world nestled in it.
