Chapter 195: The Power of Cranosson’s Mark.
Then the High-Class demon disappeared again.
The Hunting King swung his sword out of fear. Then he smiled as he saw the demon appearing in the sword’s way.
The demon raised his arms in surprise when he found himself on the sword’s path.
The Hunting King’s sword cut the demon’s arm in one slice.
The High-Class demon frowned and shouted.
And in the situation that followed, the Hunting King had no choice but to curse. It was because the two high-level demons who were watching from behind started acting.
The Hunting King had to fight a one-armed High-Class demon and two perfectly healthy High-Class demons.
[The protection of life is activated.]
[The death penalty is reduced to 3 hours.]
The Hunting King who was having a hard time fighting three High-Class demons, eventually died.
A message appeared and the surroundings darkened.
Oh Jae Yong sighed after coming out of the capsule.
“Do I really need to buy the armor?”
Although he was defeated, he was not killed in an instant. If he has Alcandium armor leggings, he can manage his own against 3 High-Class demons.
At that moment, Yoon Myung’s voice came through the door along with a knock.
Oh Jae Yong, who was immersed in thought, answered then Yoon Myung entered.
“We have completed the 30 million gold purchase you asked for.”
Oh Jae Yong couldn’t help but be a little surprised by Yoon Myung’s words.
It was also because it had not been two hours since he asked for the gold.
“Yes, most of the guild members are rankers, so they had a lot of gold, so we were able to get it right away.”
At Yoon Myeong’s words, Oh Jae Yong exclaimed and sat down in a chair.
‘Being in a guild is so comfortable.’
It made sense how he had bought 30 million gold in less than two hours.
“When can I give it to you?”
“I’ll pick it up at Hard Rock in three hours.”
Oh Jae Yong replied.
“Yes, I understand.”
Yoon Myung bowed his head at Oh Jae Yong’s words, then said his goodbyes and left the room.
After Yoon Myung left Oh Jae Yong and turned on the computer. He proceeded to enter a chat room.
-Leah: How about Jae Yong?
-Yunjin: I do not know; I think he is dead.
-Yunjin: After you died, 3 High-Class demons appeared so….
Leah and Yunjin were already chatting in the chat room.
-Oh Jae Yong: I am here.
-Yunjin: Oh, how is it?
-Leah: You died?
-Oh Jae Yong: I died. Log in after 10 minutes, try to leave the town if there are no demons. But log out if you think you are going to die. We must match our connection time.
– Oh Jae Yong: Then take a good rest until tomorrow.
Yeon Jeung shouted while throwing his shield at the Drake in front. White light shone on the shield. And the moment the shield landed on the Drake; the light exploded.
The Drake began to stumble.
Yeon Jeung fought the Drake while grabbing his shield.
Light shone on the shield once more. But this time it was red.
The Drake roared towards Yeon Jeung who placed his shield in front of him, but the roar of a staggering Drake could not do anything to Yeon Jeung.
Soon the shield exploded on the Drake, and the Drake roared once more. It was a roar filled with pain.
While the Drake was staggering, Yeon Jeung proceeded to finish him off.
*Slash* *Slash* *Slash*
– Obtained Drake’s Claw
When the notification sounded, Yeon Jeung stopped fighting then turned to look at the wagon. The ‘Children of Darkness’ returned after hunting all the nearby Drakes.
‘There is a big difference in the speed of hunting.’
He was curious about how strong the monsters in the Demon World were, so he asked Soo Hyuk to let him fight once. So, Soo Hyuk ordered the ‘Children of Darkness’ to leave one Drake so that he can fight it.
But he just realized that it was a waste of time.
‘I will just drive the wagon.’
Since it was not very beneficial to fight, he went back to driving the wagon.
Yeong Jeung started driving the wagon while talking to Soo Hyuk, who was still reading the book.
After some time.
Soo Hyuk called Yeon Jeung.
Yeon Jeung replied by pulling the reins to stop the wagon.
“We got them all.”
The reason Soo Hyun called Yeon Jeung was because they had collected all the Drake claws.
“Okay, I got one! You only need to give me 99.”
Soo Hyuk handed over 99 of the Drake claws to Yeon Jeung and checked the quest.
Cranosson accidentally learned of the existence of a portal that leads to another world, then he decided to escape the 10th Demon World.
There are 3 portals in total.
The first portal is in an area that Cranosson cannot reach at all, the second portal is in the forbidden area ‘Temple of the Balrog’, and the third portal is in the forbidden area ‘Field of Fire’.
However, the portal of the ‘Field of Fire’ was destroyed.
Cranosson intends to use the portal in the ‘Temple of the Balrog’ to go to another world.
But the forbidden areas are not considered forbidden for nothing.
To go to the Temple of the Balrog, you need a lot of ingredients.
Cranosson wants you to secretly obtain the ingredients.
Gather the necessary ingredients and find Cranosson in the city of ‘Amiletta’!
[Skeleton Skulls: 229 / 200]
[Dullahan’s Armor: 38 / 30]
[Heart of Death Worm: 0 / 50]
[Carnus’ Barn: 40 / 40]
[Drake’s Claw: 101 / 100]
[Exmores’ Wings: 0 / 50]
Quest Reward: ???
When the quest is canceled, the mark of Cranosson will be destroyed.
He looked at the quest and checked the number of remaining ingredients.
Many ingredients were collected, but there were still many more left.
‘We won’t be able to collect them all today.’
Soo Hyuk checked the time.
It was impossible to collect them all, even if they wandered around all day.
‘We’ll have to collect them all by tomorrow afternoon.’
Closing the quest window, Soo Hyuk told Yeon Jeung.
“Shall we go to a village now?”
With the Drakes being hunted, they had collected all the ingredients needed in this area. Now it was time to stop by a village according to the wishes of Yeon Jeung.
Yeon Jeung answered with a smile. Then he started driving the wagon towards the village.
They were able to see the village after a while.
“Wow, it is really big.”
Yeon Jeung exclaimed in admiration.
“Yeah, it’s pretty big for a village.”
Soo Hyuk said. It was incomparably larger than the village of spies they had seen before. There were dozens of visible buildings.
“Are all demon villages this big?”
“I don’t know.”
Soo Hyuk could not answer Yeon Jeung’s question.
This is because this village was the first village they saw in the Demon World. Excluding the spies village of course.
It was then that some demons began to approach their front. They wore uniformed armor and helmets.
It seemed that they were soldiers protecting the village of Boa.
“Should we take out Cranosson’s Mark?”
Yeon Jeung asked while looking at the soldiers, demons were mostly warlike and destructive so he did not know if they would even check it before attacking.
“I think that would be a good idea.”
Soo Hyuk had the same thoughts as him. They both took out Cranosson’s Mark from their inventory. Then watched as the demons approached.
After a while, the demon soldiers stopped walking.
“What! They are humans!”
“Huh, how did humans get here?”
“Look! I was right! Everyone give me their gold!”
Soo Hyuk shook his head at the conversations that followed. It was because their atmosphere was different from what he expected. He thought they would attack right away.
“What are they saying?”
Yeon Jeung asked.
“They are wondering about us?”
“Huh? They are curious?”
“Uh, I don’t think they will start attacking.”
Soo Hyuk thought while answering Yeon Jeung’s questions.
‘Is it the ring’s effect?’
He wondered if it was because of the Ring of Arhan’s effect that the demons were reacting like this. As it also happened with Cranosson.
“Hey humans! Stop!”
As the distance drew nearer, a demon shouted.
“Stop for a moment.”
Soo Hyuk told Yeon Jeung.
“Where are you from?”
Instead of answering the demon’s question, Soo Hyuk showed Cranosson’s mark.
The demon tilted his head. Then the demon who saw the mark immediately flinched and murmured.
“The prince’s mark?”
“What? The prince?”
“OMG! It’s real!”
“Are they the prince’s guest?”
The demons began to clamor.
“Sorry. We didn’t know you were the prince’s guest.”
All the demons who had spoken to Soo Hyuk at first came and bowed their heads. It was a very different attitude than before when they showed Cranosson’s Mark.
“Why are they behaving like that?”
“I think it’s because of the mark.”
Soo Hyuk answered Yeon Jeung.
“Can I guide you to the village chief?”
Soon a demon raised his head and asked.
Soo Hyuk shook his head and answered.
“We’re just going to take a look around the town.”
They did not come to the village to meet the village chief.
“Then may I guide you through the village?”
Soo Hyuk was about to refuse again, but with a sudden thought he accepted.
‘Maybe there are demons that attack us.’
Judging by the reactions of the demon soldiers, it seemed that even if there was no mark, they would not start a fight. But you never know.
If the demon soldiers provided guidance, they would be able to finish the tour safely without any trouble.
“My name is Roffielo.”
After Roffielo introduced himself, he took the lead. Soo Hyuk then told Yeon Jeung.
“He will give us a tour of the village.”
“Should we follow him?”
At Soo Hyuk’s words, Yeon Jeung slowly started to drive the wagon after Roffielo.
And after a while they were able to enter the village.
“Huh? What is that?”
“Humans! From the Middle World?”
“Wow, that’s amazing!”
As soon as they entered the village, demons began to gather.
“They are the prince’s guests!”
Roffielo, who volunteered to be a guide, shouted at the approaching demons.
At Roffielo’s cry the demons looked startled and kept their distance.
“Cranosson’s mark is no joke.”
Yeon Jeung said while looking at the demons.
Soo Hyuk looked around while responding to Yeon Jeung’s words. Suddenly Soo Hyuk’s head stopped in surprise.
