Chapter 193: Cranosson’s Mark
TN: I apologize for the mix up in the last couple of chapters when mentioning legendary items. It was my mistake and hopefully by the time you are reading this it is fixed.
“The Middle World?”
At Soo Hyuk’s words, Yeon Jeung shook his head.
“Do you think we should stop him? It’s like summoning a higher-class demon to the Middle World with our own hands.”
And after thinking for a while, he said with a serious expression.
“What do you think?”
“I will do what you do.”
Soo Hyuk nodded his head at Yeon Jeung’s answer.
“If it is connected to the Middle World, then we will think about it.”
After finishing the story about Cranosson, Soo Hyuk focused on Aaron’s Diary.
[You have entered the Graveyard of the Beheaded.]
Soon Soo Hyuk and Yeon Jeung arrived at the ‘Graveyard of the Beheaded’ where Dullahans live.
“Soo Hyuk, they’re all here.”
Soo Hyuk, who had been concentrating for a long time, checked the drop window at Yeon Jeung’s words.
-29 Skeleton Skulls.
-9 Skeleton shin bones.
The number of skeletons caught at the Graveyard of the Beheaded was not small, and the drop window was full of skulls and shinbones.
Now, this is where Dullahans live.
Since they had to get a lot of items, Soo Hyuk pressed OK to acquire the items.
“’Child of Darkness’, ‘Child of Darkness’.”
And with a duration of 20 minutes, he summoned the ‘Child of Darkness’ again.
When the ‘Child of Darkness’s were newly summoned, Yeon Jeung spoke, and Soo Hyuk nodded.
So Yeon Jeung started driving the carriage again, and Soo Hyuk concentrated on reading.
A group of people were moving at great speed.
There were three people running in front, and ten people following them.
Their identities were demons of the Kyrad faction.
“All of this because of humans?”
“Where did they go?”
“There is only one place nearby.”
Onen, a high-ranking demon running at the forefront, Kepi and Hoes had a conversation.
“We’ll be at Owen soon.”
“There is not a single intermediate demon in Owen.”
“Would they have caught them?”
“These are the ones who annihilated seven villages. Don’t you know what will happen to those
who are not intermediate demons.”
Thirteen demons, including Onen, were now going to the village ‘Owen’. It was because the traces of the humans they were chasing were heading towards there.
“We need to catch those humans quickly.” Onen said.
“Kyrad-sama gave the order?”
Kepi asked cautiously.
“Yeah, we have a big day ahead.”
Currently, the Kyrad faction is on high alert. A very important event that determines their fate is about to happen.
At that moment, Onen, who was running in the lead, frowned and raised his hand. It was a signal to stop.
At Onen’s signal, Kepi, Hoes, and the intermediate demons following behind stopped all at once.
“What is it?”
Onen silently raised his hand and pointed forward.
Hoes looked forward with a puzzled expression. And he could not help but be surprised. He saw black smoke rising from the village’s door.
“Isn’t that Owen?”
The problem was that the place where the black smoke was coming from was Owen.
Onen started running again.
“We’ll take a break for one hour! See you later”.
The Hunting King said to Leah and Yunjin and logged out.
Oh Jae Yong, who came out of the capsule, sat down in a chair while pressing the bell on the desk.
After a while, Yoon Myung entered the room after knocking.
“Did you call? young master.”
“I have something to ask you. Please buy me some gold.”
“How much should I buy?”
Oh Jae Yong thought about Yoon Myung’s question.
‘I don’t think it will go to 40 million.’ 40 million gold was the price of Yarion’s Wrath.
The reason for the price going so high was because it was the first legendary item, so users were very interested in it, and because it was a weapon, there were no restrictions on wearing it, so anyone could use it, so there were many competitors.
However, the Alcandium Armor Leggings up for auction this time was very different from those of Yarion’s Wrath.
First, since it was not the first time, the interest of users was less than when Yarion’s Wrath was. In addition, the wear limit is 3,000 strength and a job limit as a warrior.
‘But in case something happens, I should prepare about 30 million.’
After thinking about it, Oh Jae Yong said to Yoon Myung.
“Please buy up to 30 million gold.”
“When will it need to be ready by?”
“By lunch on Saturday.”
The auction starts at 8pm on Wednesday and ends at 8pm on Saturday.
“Okay. Do you need anything more?”
“I’m leaving then.”
Yoon Myung said goodbye and left the room.
Oh Jae Yong turned on the computer and entered the official website when Yoon Myung left. And he checked Yeon Jeung’s profile.
There were no new posts.
Oh Jae Yong, who was expecting new information about the Alcandium Armor Leggings, checked his email with a sad expression on his face.
Currently, the Emperor Guild was sending love calls to numerous people.
And the progress was being reported step by step through Oh Jae Yong’s email.
Again, there were a lot of emails.
“Soo Hyuk. Soo Hyuk.”
Oh Jae Yong looked at the mail and started looking for Soo Hyuk.
He found a report email about Soo Hyuk.
Oh Jae Yong opened the mail with anticipation.
However, Oh Jae Yong frowned after seeing the contents of the email.
The content of the email was short. It was said that they were still trying to contact him.
Oh Jae Yong let out a deep sigh.
“How many times did they say they’re still trying to contact him?”
This is not the first time an email report has been sent to Soo Hyuk.
Previously, he had received an email report, and all it said was that I was still trying to contact him.
“Hey, I want to meet him at least once.”
After reading the book, Soo Hyuk checked the drop window.
68 Dullahan’s Armor
58 Dullahan’s Souls
30 pieces of Dullahan’s armor were required for the quest, so 60 for them both.
“Yeon Jeung accept the trade.”
After acquiring the ingredients, Soo Hyuk started a trade with Yeon Jeung.
Yeon Jeung pulled the reins and stopped the wagon and accepted the trade, Soo Hyuk handed over 30 pieces of armor.
“Where are we going now?”
“Well. Let me check.”
Soo Hyuk pulled out a map from his inventory and unfolded it.
As soon as I opened the map, Yeon Jeung called him.
“Aren’t we going to visit a village?”
Even in the 10th Demon World, there were cities and villages. And all the cities and villages were marked on the map.
In addition, they have Cranosson’s mark.
Which he gave them in case they met any demons. If they show the mark even if they’re a human, the demons won’t attack them, Cranosson mentioned.
In other words, there was no need to worry about fighting with the demons.
“You want to go?”
Soo Hyuk asked.
“Yeah, honestly, I’m so curious about what it looks like.”
It was Yeon Jeung who was very surprised that there were cities and villages in the Demon World.
Which made him wonder what they look like.
“Aren’t you curious? To have a city or a village means that there may be a library.”
Soo Hyuk was surprised by Yeon Jeung’s words.
‘Come to think of it.’
There are cities and villages so there should be libraries.
‘No, I should have thought about it earlier.’
But at the next moment, Soo Hyuk had a relaxed expression.
‘I can’t read demon language, even if they had libraries.’
It is the library of the demons, so the books have be in the demon language.
In other words, even if you go to the library, you cannot read.
‘But still, Yeon Jeung wants to go.’
Soo Hyuk looked at the map.
‘This is the nearest town.’
After checking the location of the nearest village, Soo Hyuk frowned slightly.
‘There is no nearby monster that we need to hunt.’
It was because the monsters near the village did not give the items necessary for the quest.
‘I would rather we go there.’
Although it is farther away, they could hunt the monsters near it for ingredients to complete the quest.
“Let’s go over here and get some ingredients on the way.”
Soo Hyuk, who had decided on the destination told Yeon Jeung.
Yeon Jeung answered with a wide smile.
Then he started driving the wagon in the direction Soo Hyuk mentioned.
Soo Hyuk retrieved the map and opened the book. But Soo Hyuk could not concentrate on the book.
“Uh? Isn’t that a town?”
It was because of the words of Yeon Jeung that I heard shortly after departure.
Soo Hyuk raised his head.
And he was able to see the town that Yeon Jeung was talking about.
‘But there is nothing here.’
Soo Hyuk was confused. When he looked at the map just before there was no town.
He wondered if he had seen something wrong, so Soo Hyuk took out the map again and unfolded it.
However, the map did not show the town ahead. There were no towns in the area adjacent to the Graveyard of the Beheaded.
How can there be a town there?
‘Is it too small to be mentioned?’
The size of the town seemed very small. There were about 10 buildings.
Was it excluded from the map because it was embarrassing to call it a town?
‘Yeah, I guess that’s it.’
It was highly likely.
“Shall we go?”
Yeon Jeung asked.
Soo Hyuk saw Yeon Jeung’s eager look and answered.
Seeing his eager eyes, Soo Hyuk could not refuse.
It was in their way anyway.
Yeon Jeung smiled broadly at Soo Hyuk’s answer and headed to the town.
“Brother, how long do we have to be here?”
Echos a demon of the Kyrad faction, said.
Currently, some demons of the Kyrad faction, including Echos have infiltrated the Amiletta faction area.
“Do we have to stay here?”
“If they find out about us.”
“Amiletta’s high-ranking demons will come.”
“We will all be killed.”
Echos, Raynom, Elekta, and Aigos continued each other’s sentences.
“Hang in there.”
Hunies, the head of the infiltrating demons said.
“Because the war will start soon.”
Hunies smiled at the thought of war.
However, it was Hunies who had already said that war would happen a week ago.
“You said that last week as well.”
“Why the hell didn’t the war start?”
“Did something happen?”
“Let us just start it! Isn’t it a fact that war is going to happen anyway?”
The demons, including Echos, did not calm down even at the Hunies words.
The door swung open and Onian entered.
At Oniann’s cry, Hunies knew that something had happened.
Hunies asked Onian.
“Humans are here!”
Hearing Onian’s subsequent words, Hunies was shocked.
It was because these were words that he could not believe.
“Humans? From the Middle World?”
“Yes, Two of them!”
Hunies and the demons present could not say anything. The fact that humans appeared here in the Demon World was something unfathomable to them.
“Let us go quickly and kill them.”
Hunies frowned and then said. He did not know how humans came to this place, but they had to be killed so that they would not attract attention to them.
Onian frowned, glanced at the door and spoke in a quiet voice.
“These humans have the Cranosson’s mark.”
“Yeah, I think Cranosson sent them.”
