Chapter 209: Chimera’s Poison 2
“Do you want to go to the library?”
Yeon Jeung asked.
Soo Hyuk immediately flinched at Yeon Jeung’s question.
“You can go to the library.”
Yeon Jeung said with a smile.
“Anyway, I feel like I’ve lost my senses these days, so I was thinking about hunting alone.”
Recently Yeon Jeung did not fight at all. All he did was drive the wagon.
After driving for a few days, he felt that his sense of battle had dulled.
Yeon Jeung was thinking of getting that sense back through hunting.
“You can’t even wear equipment right now because of your level.”
Soo Hyuk said.
Yeon Jeung’s level was reset to 1.
Here they were in the demon world, the strength of the monsters is unbelievable.
“Because the stats haven’t been reset….”
Yeon Jeung said as he shared one of his skills.
(Guardian Shield Art [Passive])
Special Effect: 1. Ignores shield wear restrictions.
2. Shield defense is doubled.
3. 100% additional damage when attacking with a shield.
“I can wear a shield.”
And he wore the shield.
“I told you I can hunt enough! It would have been impossible without a shield, but with a shield, hunting is possible. And I am going to catch Hell Dogs. Do not worry!”
Also, the monster Yeon Jeung was trying to catch was the weakest monster in the Demon World, ‘Hell Dog’.
“Yeah, I got it.”
Soo Hyuk nodded at Yeon Jeung’s words.
“Still, I don’t think that I will go to the library right away.”
He did not want to go to the library right away.
What if Yeon Jeung failed to kill Hell Dogs?
‘You have to do it as a Guardian.’
He was thinking of raising Yeon Jeung’s level through
“Okay! Then let us go!”
Soo Hyuk and Yeon Jeung left the mansion and continued walking out of the city.
Soon after passing through the northern gate, Soo Hyuk and Yeon Jeung found a wild Hell Dog wandering around the castle.
“I will go.”
Yeon Jeung said as he approached the dog.
Hell Dog, a non-preemptive attack monster, did not show any reaction even though Yeon Jeung was approaching.
Yeon Jeung swung his shield without using any skills, he did not have a lot of skills to use at level 1.
A Hell dog hit by a shield screamed as it fell to the ground. It then got up and stared at Yeon Jeung aggressively.
Then it barked and ran to Yeon Jeung. He jumped back and put his shield in the trajectory of the hell dog’s paw.
The Hell Dog flew back after colliding with the shield.
Yeon Jeung no longer waited for Hell Dog to come. He approached with his shield and started attacking. He did not use any big attacks fearing that one mistake would kill him.
After three minutes of unilateral assault, Hell Dog died.
As soon as Hell Dog died, a huge number of level-up messages appeared.
Yeon Jeung opened the character window.
Affiliation: Fade Empire
‘I caught one, and my level became 43?’
Yeon Jeung smiled.
‘With this, I will recover up to 300 in no time.’
All items can be worn by reaching level 300.
Then he could hunt more easily.
“Did you see it?”
Yeon Jeung went back to Soo Hyuk and said,
“Yeah. I saw. It’s really stable.”
He was worried because his level was low, but there was no need to worry.
Although slow, Yeon Jeung hunting was very stable.
“So, do not worry, go to the library. Once the war starts, you can’t go back.”
“Yeah, if anything happens, message me right away.”
“Ok. Then I will go hunting again.”
Yeon Jeung approached the nearby Hell Dog.
After watching Yeon Jeung hunt for a while, Soo Hyuk returned to Ilom.
And he thought as he headed to the Warp Gate.
‘Shall we go to Ebratam? Or the small towns first?’
The Demon World libraries would also give the title of Conqueror and One Who Loves Books.
Should I go to Ebratam or small libraries first?
The title of ‘One Who Loves Books’ increases the reading experience. Therefore, he would be able to earn more wisdom.
‘Yes, I know the location.’
Pavian sighed and picked up the glass bottle.
Inside the glass bottle was a liquid that was half green and half black.
Pavian stirred the glass bottle and sighed once again.
“How many chimeras had this poison?”
And he murmured.
The liquid in the glass bottle was the poison of the Chimera, which appeared all over the continent today.
“A poison so powerful?”
It wasn’t the usual poison; it was really strong. He could not understand why chimeras had this poison.
“If it’s poison like this…”
It was a poison that was difficult to make even in the Poison Tower.
Who can make this kind of poison?
Suddenly there was a knock on the door.
“Master, Peton-sama has arrived.”
A voice came with a knock. ‘Mr Peton?’
Pavian put down the glass bottle. And he opened the door himself.
“Hey! Long time no see.”
Peton giggled as soon as the door opened.
He said hello to Pavian and naturally entered the room.
“What are you doing here?”
Pavian asked, sitting on the other side of Peton.
Peton laughed at Pavian’s question.
“You already know everything.”
“Is it because of the chimera?”
Chimeras appeared all over the continent. Perhaps it was clear that Peton came because of that.
“Yeah, to be precise, the poison left by the Chimera.”
Peton nodded at Pavian’s words. Then he continued.
“I want you to purify the poison.”
“How many places are there?”
“Is the chimera all sorted out?”
“Of course! We are the Fade Empire. You just need to clean up the poison. I even got permission from His Majesty the Emperor to say that it doesn’t matter how much it costs.”
Pavian’s eyes widened at Peton’s words.
‘Even so, there was something I needed.’
There was an item he wanted to bring from the Fade Empire Treasury.
He was wondering how to bring it, but he thought he would get the item as the request fee.
“But do you have a guess of who is behind this?”
Pavian, who was pensive, stopped thinking for a moment at Peton’s question and opened his mouth.
“Uh, there aren’t many people who can make that poison, right? And in this amount.”
“I am thinking about it. Who can manufacture so many poisons like that?”
“It was not an individual right?”
“Yes, it is not an individual who developed the poison. There are a lot of chimeras in the first place, right? It can never be done alone.”
Developing a powerful poison is possible alone.
However, there is a limit to the amount of poison that can be made alone.
In addition, considering the number of chimeras that appeared all over the continent, it was clearly a group action.
‘Why did they do this?’
What the hell was the cause of such an absurd thing?
‘There must be a reason.’
A scale of this size would have a purpose.
“What did the Empire discover?”
Pavian asked Peton. He wondered if the Empire knew something.
“The poison must be purified before we can investigate.”
They captured the chimera, but they were unable to initiate an investigation.
It was because the poison was so strong that the investigators were not in the conditions to investigate.
“Oh, I see.”
Pavian let out a sigh.
“Then let us talk about the quest. Where are the places that need purification?”

Seeing the messages, Soo Hyuk stood up.
And after he returned the book, he went to the bookshelf and took out another book.
‘There is not even a single duplicate book, but it can be conquered in one day.’
Soo Hyuk was currently using the library in the village
Because of the town’s size, Totokin Library was too small to be called a library.
Of course, there were few books that were small.
Even though there were no duplicate books, it could be conquered in one day.
‘It’s good thinking about the title, but…’
Each time you conquer a library, you will be given the title of One Who Loves Books along with the title of Conqueror.
Considering the title, the size of the library
Small libraries were not bad.
On the contrary, it could be said that it was very good for Soo Hyuk.
Soo Hyuk pulled out a book and returned to his desk. Before reading the book, he opened his friend list.
He wanted to check Yeon Jeung’s progress.
‘Are you 175 already?’
Five hours have passed since he parted with Yeon Jeung.
Among them, 30 minutes was lunch time, so the actual time invested in hunting was 4 hours and 30 minutes.
Soo Hyuk closed his friend list.
And he opened the book he had brought.
After a while, having read all the books he had brought, he got up to return them.
Soo Hyuk got up from his seat and made a puzzled expression.
– Yeon Jeung: Soo Hyuk!
– Yeon Jeung: Answer me as soon as you see this.
It was because of whispers that came from Yeon Jeung.
-Soo Hyuk: What happened?
After sending a reply to Yeon Jeung, Soo Hyuk returned the books and headed to the bookshelf.
When he arrived at the bookshelf a whisper came.
– Yeon Jeung: I got a call from the guild right now.
-Soo Hyuk: How long are you going to be gone for?
It seemed that Yeon Jeung was needed.
– Yeon Jeung: No, it is for you, not me.
However, Soo Hyuk had no choice but to tilt his head at that message.
-Soo Hyuk: Me? Did they need me?
– Yeon Jeung: Yes.
-Soo Hyuk: What kind of contact? From whom?
-Yeon Jeung: You got a call from the Poison Tower.
-Soo Hyuk: The Poison Tower?
-Yeon Jeung: Yeah, they left a message asking you to come to the Imperial Branch as soon as possible because something urgent happened?
Soo Hyuk frowned.
Something urgent happened.
– Yeon Jeung: And I have one more thing to tell you.
In the meantime, Yeon Jeung sent another whisper.
-Yeon Jeung: There is a riot in the Middle World. The main scenario has begun.
-Yeon Jeung: Chimeras are everywhere on the continent. Appearing they killed people, destroyed buildings, and roamed around. I think the reason the Poison Tower called you is probably because of that.
Seeing the whispers of Yeon Jeung, Soo Hyuk could not respond.
Soo Hyuk’s eyes were focused on ‘destroyed buildings’ in Yeon Jeung’s whispers.
Soo Hyuk quickly frowned.
‘There will be no damage.’
It was something that should never have happened.
Please, Soo Hyuk hoped for his thoughts to be wrong.
[Warping to the Archmage’s Subspace]
Soo Hyuk warped to the Archmage’s Subspace.
He did not have time to read.
