Chapter 210: Chimeras Hunt
Soo Hyuk immediately moved to the warp magic circle.
And upon arrival, he warped to Kennis, where the Tower of Poison’s Imperial Branch of the Fade Empire was located.
“Hey, let’s go to Eidong!”
“Are there still Chimeras?”
“Yea, almost all of them were hunted, but I think there are one or two left.”
“Then they haven’t been all killed? What do you think about going to another kingdom?”
“Didn’t you see the posts of users who were killed while they were there? Let us choose safe places only.”
Soo Hyuk, who came out of the Warp Gate, was relieved to hear the conversations of users.
‘It seems that almost all of them have been killed.’
Fortunately, the Chimeras within the Empire seemed to be almost taken care of.
Soo Hyuk began to follow his memory and move towards the branch.
However, after a while, Soo Hyuk had to stop walking. He did not stop arbitrarily.
A man wearing a priest’s uniform and a man who looked like a knight stood in front of Soo Hyuk.
*A few moments earlier*
“Can’t we do it on our own?”
Ali, the paladin of the temple that worships Ertuna, the god of peace, asked.
At Ali’s question, Priest Legonal nodded his head with a bitter expression. Currently, Legonal and Ali were on their way back after the commission from the Fade Empire Branch of the Tower of Poison.
Chimeras appeared all over the continent.
Countries as strong as the Fade Empire
The Chimeras were cleaned up within a few hours, but the weaker countries were still being severely damaged by the Chimeras.
Moreover, even if they killed the Chimera, the remaining poison caused many people to lose their lives and made the situation full of confusion.
In order to catch the Chimera and purify the poison to correct the confusion, the power of the Tower of Poison was desperately needed.
That was then.
Small but very unpleasant.
It was because he felt an energy.
It was obviously magi.
What kind of crazy person exudes magi in the middle of the day in broad daylight?
“What is it?”
“I’m feeling magi.”
Legonal looked around and spoke low enough that only Ali could hear him.
Ali asked in amazement.
Following Legonal, Ali put his hand around the sword on his waist and looked around.
“It’s coming towards us.”
Magi was getting closer and closer.
Legonal looked carefully at the direction Magi was approaching, and Ali was wary of the direction Legonal was facing.
“That is the culprit.”
Soon a man appeared and Legonal said.
“What are you going to do?”
“We should ask. Why is he exuding magi?”
Answering Ali’s question, Legonal took the lead and approached the man.
“Excuse me for a moment.”
Soo Hyuk was puzzled by the priest’s words.
It did not seem like they were blocking his way to ask for directions.
‘Why are their expressions so hard?’
His expression was the proof.
The priest was full of seriousness, and the expression of the paladin was full of ferocity.
“Yes, tell me.”
For once, Soo Hyuk answered the priest’s words.
“My name is Legonal, a priest who worships Ertuna, the god of peace. I am feeling magi in you right now…”
Legonal, who had blurred the end of his words, looked up and down Soo Hyuk once, and continued.
“Can I know the reason?”
After he finished speaking, Legonal moved back slightly.
And the paladin from behind him came forward.
Soo Hyuk thought as he watched the two of them act.
He did not understand why he was blocked, but he got it now.
‘Oh, I know why.’
Amiletta’s mark was very convenient in the Demon World.
But not here in the Middle World.
Even if it was in the inventory, the magi were released so it was natural for Legonal and the Paladin to react like this.
To them, they will look like a person who releases magi.
“Ah, the Magi you feel is probably coming out of here.”
Before being misunderstood, Soo Hyuk pulled out Amiletta’s mark from his inventory.
“This is loot.”
Soo Hyuk twisted the truth a little because he could not tell the truth that he was given a gift from Amiletta.
“Yes, loot. Obtained by killing demons.”
It was not a lie.
It was obtained from Amiletta by killing the spies of the Kyrad faction, so the spoils were loot.
“My name is Soo Hyuk from the Tower of Poison.”
“Ah, you were a magician of the Tower of Poison!”
Hearing about Soo Hyuk’s affiliation, Legonal exclaimed.
And the doubt that remained on his face disappeared in an instant.
“Yeah, I have an urgent business right now, so I think I should go…”
Soo Hyuk blurs the end of his words.
Legonal quickly turned aside, speaking with an expression and voice full of regret at Soo Hyuk’s words.
“Then I will be going.”
Soo Hyuk bowed his head slightly as a greeting, passed the Legonal and the paladin, and headed to the Tower of Poison branch.
Soon after arriving at the branch, Soo Hyuk went inside.
“Please stand in line!”
“How long do we have to wait! People are still dying!”
“Please, my child is trapped inside! please!”
There were many people in the branch.
‘It looks more serious than I thought.’
Listening to the voices, and words of people, it seemed that the situation was worse than he had expected.
“Are you here?”
A wizard came.
He was a wizard who had seen his face before.
“I will guide you to the branch manager’s room.”
Soo Hyuk followed the wizard to the branch manager office.
“Soo Hyuk is here.”
After arriving in the room, the wizard knocked and shouted.
Then, after hearing footsteps from inside, the door opened and Kelloy came out.
“You are here!”
Kelloy’s face was full of tiredness.
“I have been contacted. what happened?”
Things were clear about the Chimera.
But he could not be sure until he heard it, so Soo Hyuk asked Kelloy.
“I will tell you in detail. Please come in.”
Soo Hyuk entered the room at Kelloy’s words.
And he could see a man in the room.
‘Who is it? Nobility?’
He was wearing luxurious clothes.
In addition, when he saw the jewels hanging around his body, he thought that he might be a nobleman.
“Oh, it’s Soo Hyuk. Nice to meet you. My name is Romeo, the 1st heir of the Royal Top.”
Romeo got up and introduced himself by shaking hands with Soo Hyuk.
Soo Hyuk could not help but be a little surprised. No wonder the Royal Top was one of top organizations in the continent.
Soo Hyuk greeted him with a handshake.
However, Soo Hyuk did not know who the man was, even though he is the top heir of the Royal Top, he had nothing to say after greeting and there was silence for a while.
“I will be on my way then.”
Of course, the silence did not last long.
Romeo never sat down again.
The story was over, and Romeo had a job too.
“Yes, we will solve it as soon as possible.”
Romeo smiled, bowed his head slightly as a greeting and left the room.
When the door closed Kelloy said.
“He is the second son of the Royal Top Chairman and is the heir who will lead the Royal Top.”
“Why did he come here?”
Soo Hyuk sat down and asked Kelloy.
“It is said that half of the Royal Top branch was taken over by the Chimeras.”
Kelloy sat on the other side of Soo Hyuk and answered the question.
Romeo came here because of the Chimeras.
Half of the branch was destroyed by the Chimeras.
“The warehouse is underground, so it’s safe, but he didn’t know what would happen, so he made a request to clean up the Chimeras as soon as possible.”
“Don’t Royal Top have their own power?”
Soo Hyuk tilted his head.
If it is Royal Top, it is one of the top forces in the continent.
“They said the poison was so strong they couldn’t purify it.”
After Soo Hyuk’s words, Kelloy continued.
“I contacted Soo Hyuk. Because of a letter from Chief Mathew.”
At Kelloy’s next words, Soo Hyuk could not help but be puzzled.
“Chief Matthew told me to deliver it to you directly.”
Kelloy took the letter out of his pocket and handed it to Soo Hyuk.
Soo Hyuk opened the letter and began to read it.
‘They were the same Chimeras I saw back then.’
In the past, Soo Hyuk had to deal with numerous Chimeras in the underground waterway of Hard Rock.
When the Chimeras appeared this time, he wondered if they were the same Chimeras as back then, it was true.
After reading the letter, Soo Hyuk put it in his inventory.
‘I’ll have to clean up the Chimeras first.’
The letter contained Pavian’s request to help the branch.
“Where are the Chimeras that are hard to handle now?”
Soo Hyuk, who was going to help anyway so he asked Kelloy.
“Oh, one second.”
Kelloy quickly got up from his seat at Soo Hyuk’s words and walked over to the desk. And he came back with two sheets of paper.
“They are here.”
Soo Hyuk looked at the papers Kelloy handed him.
‘The Principality of Illyin – Hoyle Village….’
It was written ‘Country – Village – Letter’.
“A? S? What are these?”
What does the Letter mean?
Soo Hyuk raised his head and looked at Kelloy and asked.
“S is a place where the Chimeras are prevented from moving to another place, but cannot hold out for a few days, A is a place where they can last a week, B is a place where the Chimeras are completely prevented from escaping, and C is a place where only purification is needed.”
Soo Hyuk, who fully understood the meaning of the alphabet at Kelloy’s explanation, nodded and looked at the paper again.
‘I have to clean up S first.’
What if the Chimeras move to another town or city?
Just thinking about it was terrifying.
“Can I take this paper?”
Soo Hyuk asked Kelloy.
“Yes, of course. But are you planning to go right now?”
Chimeras appeared all over the continent. They have such a powerful poison that they are not easy to deal with.
Except for a few countries, Chimeras are still active. Defeat the Chimeras!
[Number of Chimeras: 〇 / ???]
Quest Reward: ???
A quest was created at Kelloy’s question.
[You have accepted the quest ‘Chimera Hunt’.]
[Obtain Kelloy’s memo.]
Soo Hyuk accepted the quest and put the paper in his inventory then got up from his seat.
“I plan to deal with the most urgent requests first.”
“Are you okay by yourself?”
“Yeah, I’ve met them before. In Hard Rock.”
“Then I wish you the best.”
Soo Hyuk came out of the room listening to Kelloy’s shouts.
There were still many people in the branch shouting.
Soo Hyuk passed people and left the branch, then headed to the Warp Gate.
“Where should we go?”
“I think the empire is almost done, shouldn’t we go somewhere else?”
After a while, Soo Hyuk was able to arrive at the Warp Gate.
Quite a few people were lining up to use the Warp Gate.
“Where are you going?”
Soon it was Soo Hyuk’s turn.
He answered the wizard’s question.
“Sid of the Domanian Kingdom”
The first place Soo Hyuk headed to was the village of ‘Sid’ of the Domanian kingdom, which is an S grade.
“It’s 40 gold.”
Soo Hyuk took out 40 gold from his inventory and handed it over.
And he warped to the village ‘Sid’.
[You are not affected.]
[You are not affected.]
As soon as he arrived, messages began to appear.
‘Poison as soon as you warp.’
Soo Hyuk, who thought the Warp Gate would be invincible, saw the message and got out of the Warp Gate and looked around.
Soo Hyuk was able to find two Chimeras nearby.
