Chapter 203: Demon Library
The mark of one of the rulers of the 10th Demon World, Amiletta.
The token contains the energy of Amileta.
(Amiletta’s energy is emitted even if it is in your inventory.)
The item that Soo Hyuk received from Amiletta was her mark. He did not ask for her mark, all he asked for was to be able to enter all the libraries. So Amiletta gave him her mark.
‘Now I can enter all the libraries.’
Soo Hyuk smiled at the thought.
He can now enter all the libraries in the areas managed by Amiletta in the 10th Demon World.
And thanks to the Ring of Arhan, he was able to read the demon language.
New books were also available in the Demon Realm.
“By the way, Soo Hyuk.”
Yeon Jeung called him.
Soo Hyuk closed all the windows in response to Yeon Jeung’s call.
“It’s starting soon. What are we going to do?”
Soo Hyuk tilted his head at Yeon Jeung words.
Soo Hyuk exclaimed and checked the time.
“It will start in 20 minutes.”
It was the time to start the auction of the Alcandium Armor Leggings.
“Are you going to check it?”
Yeon Jeung asked.
It was Soo Hyuk who could go and leave to and from the Demon World whenever he wanted through ‘Archmage’s Subspace’. So, he can go to the auction and come back to complete the quests later.
Soo Hyuk shook his head.
“I’m not going to cancel the auction anyway.”
It was the second legendary item, and it was the first auctioned armor. Therefore, like Yarion’s Wrath it will fetch a high price. In other words, there was no need to cancel the auction.
“If it’s the price, I can take a look later.”
He was curious about the price, but he can check later or when the auction is finished and even at the website.
“By the way, the second option of the Ring of Arhan is unlocked.”
Soo Hyuk shared the information about the Ring of Arhan to Yeon Jeung.
Yeon Jeung, who checked the information, was astonished like Soo Hyuk. He then smiled while saying.
“Congratulations! Now you can go to the library you want so much!”
At Yeon Jeung words Soo Hyuk laughed as well.
Herden was surprised. It was because Carla was approaching from afar.
He thought she would come back in 3 days at least.
After a while, Herden could see Carla’s serious expression.
Carla soon reached the temple and called Herden.
“What’s going on?”
“I’m going to the 11th Demon World.”
“Dolgen, Tarman, and Elota are dead.”
Herden was astonished at Carla’s words.
“I will leave the temple in your hands. However, if you find yourself unable to handle the situation, retreat immediately.
Herden replied with a firm expression. While Carla passed through the portal to the 11th Demon World.
As Carla went into the portal, Herden thought.
There were very few beings capable of killing Dolgen, Tarman, and Elota. They are beings who could not move easily because they kept each other in check.
‘If a war happens in this situation, I will not be able to intervene.’
The Amiletta and Kyrad faction went through countless wars.
Nevertheless, it was because of the intervention of the Balrogs that a conclusion was not reached.
The Balrogs had another task other than protecting the portal. It was to prevent the war from ending and the dominance of one faction throughout the 10th Demon World.
Until now the Balrogs attacked the Amiletta faction if the Kyrad faction were in danger, and vice versa.
But what if war broke out under the current circumstances?
‘I hope that does not happen.’
“Are you going to attack from the front again?”
Soo Hyuk nodded his head without saying a word in response to Yeon Jeung’s question.
After stopping the wagon for a while, Yeon Jeung drove it back to the village of Onikat.
Unlike the village ‘Evora’, there were demons at the entrance of Onikat.
The demon discovered Soo Hyuk and Yeon Jeung and asked in bewilderment.
To the demon’s words, Soo Hyuk cast a spell.
-Obtained Intermediate demon Soul Stone.
A drop window appeared, and they entered the town.
The ‘Children of Darkness’ began to approach the surrounding buildings.
It seemed that the demons of Onikat were not gathered in one place.
‘Well, something special must have happened in Elota.’
Soo Hyuk got off the wagon and started casting magic spells on the buildings that the children of darkness had not gone to.
“Hellfire, Fire Stone, Fire Wall, Poison Storm, Poison Fog.”
Yeon Jeung moved the wagon slowly to follow Soo Hyuk.
[The village ‘Onikat’ has been cleared up.]
Soon, a message appeared, and Soo Hyuk naturally got on the wagon and took out the map and note. To determine the route to Olrnium.
“Let’s go this way.”
Soo Hyuk moved his finger to indicate the route.
“Then we will not have to go through the entrance on the other side.”
Yeon Jeung turned the wagon to go through the entrance that they just came from.
Then headed to the ‘Cold Lake Zone’ where the village
‘Olrnium’ was located.
Soo Hyuk sighed and thought.
‘What should I do?’
Even demons have night and day.
‘It will take about 30 minutes to get to the village.’
It takes about 30 minutes just to clean up Olrnium and go to the nearby village.
‘Yeah, let’s go to the library.’
He stopped worrying about it and opened his mouth.
“Let’s complete the quest tomorrow.”
“Then, shall we just clean up the villages today?”
Soo Hyuk nodded his head.
[You have entered the Cold Lake Zone.]
They managed to arrive at the ‘Cold Lake Zone’ while they were talking.
Unlike the villages they had visited before, they did not have to tour the lake all the way. There was a village that came into their sight right away.
It was clearly Olrnium. Yeon Jeung drove the wagon to it.
Hertana, who was sipping her tea, opened her mouth to the sound of a knock.
The door opened at Hertana’s words, and Eshtar, a High-Class Demon in charge of the city of Alin, entered.
“Did you call?”
At Eshtar’s words, Hertana put down the teacup and continued.
“I was wondering if the preparations were going well.”
Two days later, the war with the Amiletta faction will start.
The front-line city Alin is currently busy preparing for war.
“Except for the three cities of Elonas, Omirta, and Keroth, all the High-Class Demons of the other cities have come over.”
“What about the rear disturbance unit?”
While listening to the report, Hertana asked. She did not ask about how far the troops had crossed or how much food was stockpiled. The only thing she was curious about was the plan.
“Enicom has departed. They will start in three days.”
“Also, the food.”
Hertana finished Eshtar’s report.
But suddenly a thought came to her, so she exclaimed.
There was one question that was not resolved.
“Is Cranosson in Ilom right now?”
Eshtar nodded his head with a puzzled look.
Hertana made a strange expression at Eshtar’s answer.
“Then, I should go.”
Eshtar quickly got up from his seat, and quickly left the room after with Hertana’s permission.
Hertana remembered him and smiled as she called Cranosson in a strange voice.
[The village ‘Olrnium’ has been cleaned up.]
“That is all of them!”
Yeon Jeung said.
‘It ended sooner than I thought.’
Soo Hyuk thought about the words of Yeon Jeung. It was originally scheduled to finish at 11 o’clock. However, they arrived sooner than expected and had 20 minutes left until 11 O’clock after they cleared the village.
“Shall we go straight to the village?”
Soo Hyuk got on the carriage while answering Yeon Jeung’s question.
Yeon Jeung then started driving the wagon to the village of Baza.
“Are we going to log in tomorrow at 9?”
Soo Hyuk asked.
“Yeah, let’s make it 9 o’clock, and we could log in earlier if we had time.”
“Yeah, let’s do that.”
“Oh, and Soo Hyuk.”
“There is one thing I want to have your permission for.”
Yeon Jeung was afraid to look Soo Hyuk in the eye.
Soo Hyuk asked in puzzlement at Yeon Jeung’s reaction.
He wondered what the hell did he need his permission for? And why was he afraid to look into his eyes?
“Can I post about the unexplored land?”
“Yeah, I will not even mention the Devil’s Nest, only up to the Aconia Mountains.”
“Why do you need my permission for that?”
Soo Hyuk tilted his head. He did not understand why Yeon Jeung needed his permission.
“I only managed to be here because of you.”
“No, I wouldn’t have been able to come here without you.”
If it were not for Yeon Jeung in the first place, he wouldn’t have been able to be here.
“You can post it.”
Yeon Jeung laughed at Soo Hyuk’s words.
While they were having a conversation, they reached the village of ‘Opo’.[ED Note: I assume they passed through Baza while talking to arrive at Opo. I’ll edit this once I see the next chapter if it changes]
“See you tomorrow!”
Upon arrival, Yeon Jeung got off the wagon and greeted Soo Hyuk.
“Okay, see you tomorrow.”
Yeon Jeung listened to Soo Hyuk’s answer and then logged out.
Soo Hyuk went to the Warp Gate after Yeon Jeung logged out.
It was late at night, so there were not that many demons wandering around. And the few demons that were around looked at him and did not approach because of Amiletta’s mark.
It would have been quite troublesome if the demons approached.
Soo Hyuk arrived at the Warp Gate in comfort then he warped to the city ‘Ebratam’.
‘He said that the library is at the city center.’
The reason he came to Ebratam was because of the library.
Of course, Ebratam was not the only city that had a library. However, it is the only library that he knows its location.
‘How big is the library in such a city?’
Soo Hyuk imagined the size of Ebratam’s library while heading to the city center.
After a while, Soo Hyuk arrived at the city center and looked around.
‘He said it was in the basement?’
Obviously, Dehelen said there was a library in the basement of the city center. But there was no way to go underground.
Soo Hyuk checked the surrounding buildings. Then he stopped in front of a building. There was a signboard with a book on it hanging at the entrance.
‘Is this the entrance?’
It was clearly a library from the sign.
Soo Hyuk entered the building.
‘Here it is.’
As soon as he entered the building, Soo Hyuk could see the stairs leading to the basement and the demons guarding them.
The demons found Soo Hyuk and stood up. However, they stopped because they apparently felt the energy coming from Amiletta’s Mark.
Soo Hyuk took out the badge and showed it to them.
“I came to use the library.”
“Sure! We will guide you!”
“No need. I just need to go down the stairs, right?”
“Should I leave this to you?”
After hearing the demon’s answer, Soo Hyuk put the mark back in his inventory and went down the stairs.
And not long after, Soo Hyuk reached the end of the stairs and was able to enter the library.
Soo Hyuk stopped walking as soon as he entered the library.
There were many bookshelves lined with bookcases.
Soo Hyuk looked at the bookshelves without saying a word, then he smiled brightly.
“They are all shining.”
All the books were emitting a sparkling white light.
