Reader - Chapter 183
Soo Hyuk and Yeon Jeung stood on the cliff.
“That seems to be Hayden from there, right?” Yeon Jeung was looking at the map, raised his hand, and pointed to the front.
Soo Hyuk looked at the map that Yeon Jeung had and saw the place he was pointing to.
Yeon Jeung was pointing where the forest disappears and the deserted plain begins.
It was the place.
“Yes, we can go over there and enter it.”
After checking the topography on the cliff, Soo Hyuk and Yeon Jeung descended the cliff and headed for Hayden.
They already knew the way, and the ‘Child of Darkness’ took care of the monsters, so Soo Hyuk and Yeon Jeung progressed smoothly.
Soon after, Soo Hyuk and Yeon Jeung were able to escape the forest and reach the deserted plains.
[You have entered Hayden.]
As soon as they stepped onto the plains, a message appeared.
“I’ll put away the map!”
Yeon Jeung put away the map he was holding into his inventory as he talked to Soo Hyuk.
Yeon Jeung’s map showed Hayden’s topography, but not the Devil’s Nest, the final destination.
But on Soo Hyuk’s map, Hayden’s topography and the Devil’s Nest were shown.
In other words, Yeon Jeung’s map was no longer useful.
Soo Hyuk opened his inventory for Yeon Jeung .
And when the special quest “Sealed Place” was created, the “Map to the Nest” was drawn out and unfolded.
‘Hoh, do we have the position?’
Soo Hyuk opened the map and smiled.
It was because green spots that were not visible were now created.
It was clear that it pointed to Soo Hyuk and Yeon Jeung’s current location.
“We can easily go.”
Yeon Jeung nodded at Soo Hyuk’s words.
And Soo Hyuk and Yeon Jeung began to follow the map toward the Devil’s Nest.
“Wow, those are the Riads.”
Monsters appeared in front of Yeon Jeung and he muttered with admiration.
The monsters living in Hayden were a race called Riad.
Riads were a race that looked similar to humans, but unlike humans they had a long tail on their hips and thorns on their forearms.
Meanwhile, the ‘’Child of Darkness’’, arrived in front of a Riad and swung his arm.
Then, the arm elongated and cut the Riad.
Yeon Jeung muttered as he saw the Riad in pain.
“The ‘Child of Darkness’ seems to be a really nonsensical skill.”
He thought it was good even when it was at the beginner level.
But when it became intermediate, he thought it was a scam beyond belief.
“I think so too.”
Soo Hyuk responded to Yeon Jeung’s words and stepped behind the escort of the ‘Child of Darkness’.
After a while, they arrived in front of the cave leading to the Devil’s Nest.
“Wow, it’s quiet.”
Yeon Jeung muttered while looking at the cave.
A cold wind was flowing from the cave, and it combined with the surrounding features to create a very quiet atmosphere.
“What kind of monsters are there?”
Yeon Jeung asked Soo Hyuk.
“Because it’s a devil’s nest, won’t a devil come out? Like demons.”
Soo Hyuk put a map away while answering Yeon Jeung’s questions.
And he pulled out the map for the Devil’s Nest, ‘Karu’s Treasure Map 2’.
Soo Hyuk took out the map and walked into the cave.
Shortly thereafter, Soo Hyuk could see a skeleton standing guard in front of him.
There were 2 skeletons in total.
They were seated one on each side.
‘This looks like an entrance.’
At the entrance marked on the map, two skeletons were drawn.
[You have entered the dungeon the Devil’s Nest.]
[A maximum of 10 people can enter.]
[There is a hidden secret in the Devil’s Nest.]
[If you find a hidden secret, it will be cleared.]
[You have completed the special quest ‘Sealed Place’.]
[The map to the nest will disappear.]
[Special quest ‘Broken Seal’ is created.]
The moment he passed the skeletons, messages appeared.
As expected, the skeletons were the starting point for the Devil’s Nest.
Soo Hyuk opened the quest window while looking at the message.
And this time, he checked the newly created ‘Broken Seal’.
〈Special Quest-Broken Seal〉
In the Devil’s Nest, there is a door that connects to the Demon World.
It was sealed by someone, but recently the seal has been broken.
Find the door that connects to the Demon World!
Quest Reward: ???
A previously sealed place.
This time it was a door.
‘As well as a quest to find the gate of the Demon World.’
Looking at the contents of the book, he did some predicting.
It was because the gate of the Demon World was constantly mentioned.
‘You can use Hellfire.’
The book said that when Hellfire is cast the monsters that live here appear.
In other words, cast Hellfire and if you go back in the direction they appear, you will be able to find the door. It was then.
Yeon Jeung sighed deeply. Soo Hyuk, who was looking at the map, turned to the sigh of Yeon Jeung.
And Soo Hyuk looked at his face and tilted his head.
It was because Yeon Jeung’s expressions were full of embarrassment and irritation.
“What is it?”
Soo Hyuk asked Yeon Jeung.
Yeon Jeung frowned at his question.
And then he said.
“The Marquis is looking for me in haste.”
“I think I should go now.”
“Yes, I think I should. The first clear reward is important, but the guild is more important.”
Yeon Jeung said with a bitter smile.
The reward for clearing the Devil’s Nest will be huge.
However, the guild was more important to Yeon Jeung.
He couldn’t put off the guild’s work to get the first clear reward.
“I’ll go. See you later! Please let me know what it is later!”
As soon as Soo Hyuk answered, the scroll was torn and Yeon Jeung disappeared.
So, Yeon Jeung disappeared, and Soo Hyuk took a step forward and thought about it.
‘Shall we find the treasure chest first?’
There were two things Soo Hyuk had to do in the Devil’s Nest.
First, finding Karu’s treasure chest.
Second, finding that door somewhere.
‘Yes, I don’t know what will happen if I find the gate of the Demon World…’
After contemplating, Soo Hyuk decided to find the treasure chest first.
Soon after the decision was made, Soo Hyuk reached the end of the cave and was able to enter the cavern.
‘Are those guys from the book?’
As soon as he entered the cavern, Soo Hyuk was able to see two monsters looking at him.
The monsters’ appearance was a dog.
It was 1m in height and 3m in length. It was very large compared to the size of a general dog, and it had two heads, but it was basically a dog.
Just then, the ‘Children of Darkness’ began to approach the monsters.
And as the ‘Children of Darkness’ moved, the monsters also moved with a roar from all four heads.
Of course, the monsters are not so great compared to the ferocious momentum that accompanied the roar.
They were weak.
No, are the ‘Children of Darkness’ that strong?
The ‘Children of Darkness’ slaughtered them one by one, and Soo Hyuk could see the drop window.
-4 fangs of hell
After learning about the dropped items by clicking OK, Soo Hyuk looked around the interior of the cavity and thought about it.
‘The seal is broken, why isn’t it like this?’
The cavern was huge.
According to the map, the cavern where Soo Hyuk was currently located was the second largest.
However, there were too few monsters in it.
There were only two hell dogs.
The seal was not maintained, and he thought there weren’t many monsters for the size of the cavern.
‘Is it like the entrance?’
Soo Hyuk thought and checked the map.
‘The one in the middle.’
After checking the map, Soo Hyuk headed to the middle of the three paths in front.
And after that, the ‘Children of Darkness’ followed.
‘There are a lot here.’
Soo Hyuk, who went through the middle path and arrived at the next cavern, was able to see five hell dogs.
The ‘Children of Darkness’ began to approach the hell dog.
However, the number of Children of Darkness is two.
The Children of Darkness began to approach the hell dog.
However, the number of ‘Children of Darkness’ was two.
There are three left.
Of course, if the ‘Children of Darkness’ had the speed they had just seen, the other three would be caught immediately, but Soo Hyuk had time to wait for that moment.
He was Soo Hyuk, who has the ability to kill hell dogs as quickly as the ‘Child of Darkness’.
-9 fangs of hell
Shortly after the Poison Storm appeared, a drop window appeared with a level-up message.
Soo Hyuk thought while looking at the level up message.
‘Now it’s 380, so I have 20 left.’ There are only 20 levels left until 400 where he could unlock a new attribute.
‘What attribute should I open?’
Soo Hyuk thought about what attribute he would open up, and after acquiring the items, he passed by the Poison Storm and began to stride toward the place where the treasure chest was.
-Ooh! These vicious human guys!
Lesser demons fell while sprinkling blood.
The Hunting King looked around out of breath.
The corpses of the demons were all around.
The Hunting King murmured while wielding his sword to shake off the blood.
“It’s so hard to finish a small town.”
Currently, the place where The Hunting King is located is the 10th Demon World.
It was a small town.
A small village where dozens of lesser demons live.
“Cities seem impossible for the three of us?”
Yunjin said as he approached.
Before coming to the town, they saw two cities.
Unlike this place where only low-ranking demons existed, there would be advanced demons and intermediate demons in the city.
It was crazy to raid the city with three.
“Yes, it’s impossible in the current situation.”
The Hunting King also nodded.
“Still, if you rob villages like this in the 10th Demon World, the answer will come out.”
“Well, then, will you keep going to villages?”
“Yes, I should.”
It was then.
“I found a hidden place!”
“A hidden place?”
The Hunting King asked Leah’s words.
“Huh! There was a staircase leading to the basement!”
Leah responded to The Hunting King’s question and began guiding them.
The Hunting King and Yunjin followed suit.
After a while, Leah stopped.
As Leah said, there was a staircase leading to the basement.
“I think there may be something?”
Yunjin said while looking at the stairs.
The Hunting King began to go down the stairs in front at Yunjin’s words.
‘What is there?’
Going down the ground, The Hunting King thought.
‘I don’t think there’s anything like a treasure.’
It didn’t seem like he had stored the treasure in the open place where the stairs could be seen.
Of course, he was excited because it was something he didn’t know.
Soon the stairs were over and The Hunting King could see the door that was firmly closed.
The Hunting King opened the door and went inside.
The Hunting King stopped and checked the inside.
There was no light in it because it was underground, but there was a magic lamp, so there was no problem with sight, and The Hunting King could now know what was inside.
Books, what was inside were books.
The Hunting King frowned at the numerous books that came into sight.
“It’s a library…”
Even if it wasn’t a treasure, I was hoping there would be something special, but it was only books.
With a disappointed expression, The Hunting King went back to the ground with Leah and Yunjin.
