The entire world was being controlled according to the line I drew.
The sanctuary barrier does not prevent you from going outside, so you may be able to go outside the barrier, but if you eventually fill the boundary with another barrier, you will face a barrier in another area as soon as you leave.
And since people cannot enter the new barrier, people are ultimately trapped.
This alone brought the distribution network to a complete halt.
Perhaps people who went to work a little further away would not be able to return home.
Is there a more harmless and overwhelming way to subdue it than this? But it wasn’t completely harmless.
It may be a bit inconvenient to have the logistics of food and daily necessities stopped, but it will be released in a week, so you just have to endure it until then.
The problem was medical.
Medical supplies or drugs that must arrive, patients requiring emergency surgery, etc.
It is impossible to completely revive a life that has been lost.
When I root, it comes in the form of a soul stone, but it can’t be used indefinitely.
If you don’t keep feeding the magic stone, the soul stone will use up all of the system’s resources allocated to it and disappear.
It was knowledge obtained through ‘records’.
So, I asked Eundam Yoo to find a place where such a fatal problem occurs and provide support.
The manpower is because there are hunters who cooperated during the gate liberation incident.
“You said before that you were looking at the records. “Have you found out anything else?”
Now that I think about it, I completely forgot about it.
Even though I was taking acting training with other people, I spent time alone in the evenings looking at the records of the system.
Since I had roughly figured out all the important details, I nodded.
“huh. I’ll tell you now. “Are you curious about the identity of the predator?”
I was planning to say it all at once when everyone else was gathered, but seeing as you were the one who brought it up first, I guess you’re quite curious, so there’s no need to delay it.
Because I can say it multiple times.
“That’s part of it, and I’m also worried that more problems will arise in the future.”
Ah, I’m secretly worried a lot.
“iced coffee. I don’t think you need to worry about that. maybe?”
“really? Well, an army of predators is coming…”
An army of predators.
It’s scary to think that such guys would come to Earth in droves.
Eundami’s imagination was also quite good.
I guess it’s because I already told Seo Ji-han the details every evening. With a disinterested look on his face, he took out a bag of bean sprouts from the refrigerator and started chopping them. He
really is a time-efficient person.
“Um, no. There is no army of predators.”
“is it so?”
“To sum it up, a predator is just like a natural disaster. No, a dimensional disaster? It’s not something that someone intentionally created and is trying to attack. It’s just a being that wanders around the dimension and devours the life force of the dimension.”
“The first record of the system also contains an analysis of this. There, someone described it as ‘a kind of wandering afterlife.’ A dimensional creature that roams around for the sole purpose of devouring everything and ending all possibilities. “It’s not like they reproduce among themselves or anything, it just happens.”
“huh. It just says that it suddenly appears one day in a dimensional gap. “They said they don’t know any more than that.”
“I’m a bit disappointed.”
“I was a little surprised too. It’s a civilization system that has incredibly advanced technology to create a system like this, but even those beings don’t know about it. I was kind of looking forward to it. Actually, I thought there would be a clear answer like ‘There was a God’ or something like that.”
“Isn’t God a religious realm?”
“I had some expectations because even the soul could be established theoretically and treated with scientific technology.”
When I glanced at Seo Ji-han, Yoo Eun-dam nodded.
“Yes. Jihan, who would have normally died, has such high skill that he almost brought his older brother back to life…” “
Well, that’s right.”
“So, if someone created this system, then that person could come here? Oh, are you sure they are people?”
“That won’t happen.”
I can roughly understand what Eundam Yoo was worried about.
It seems that he was worried that not a predator but an extremely advanced alien creature that created this system would invade.
“Because it was destroyed. I checked the records to see how they struggled to solve the problem, but in the end, they were unable to find a solution, so they planted this system in the Predator and spread it throughout the dimension.”
“Oh. You planted it? How?”
“Hmm, I don’t know the technical part. Even when I look at the records, I don’t understand everything. I don’t even know how something like this is possible. These people’s technology is so high-level. When the people who created the system come here and see us, they will see the cutting-edge medical technology we have. “It will look uncivilized.”
“I guess so.”
“That’s right. Probably because you have a headache, if you hit your foot with a rock and it hurts even more, you will feel less headache! This is the cure for your headache!”
Yu Eun-dam burst out laughing at my joke.
Seo Ji-han was also laughing.
“Oh, and the way to select a king used to be a little different than it is now. There was no need to obtain a horn to enter the final hall, and you were just ranked 10th in military power. “They assigned us a ranking up to the top and made us participate in the final hall.”
“Oh, that seems more reasonable. Why didn’t you do that?”
“Even if it was a ranking of force, it seems to have been a bit ambiguous in actual combat. We ranked the force based on damage with the goal of killing predators, but there were cases where the 10th place, which had better combat sense or agility, easily killed the 1st place.”
“Ah. So, are you changing to a contribution system to measure actual combat power?”
“Hmm, it’s similar. Anyway, the form of obtaining horns and participating in the final hall was created quite a bit later. The system began to include an element that goes against its calculations, namely ‘luck’, as a simulation element.”
“We were lucky.”
“That’s right. Anyway, I’m grateful. Even though they were destroyed, small, uncivilized creatures from other dimensions created this system in the hope of surviving such a disaster. And that system is still circling the dimension.”
“Oh, then what about predators? There are no more predators? Because your sister killed them?”
“No, there isn’t just one predator. The one that came to our world also had the identifying name ‘Ionickel’. If there was only one, there was no need to call it that. Wouldn’t there be several of them running amok in another dimension even now? .”
“Ah. So they can come here?”
“Maybe one day, but I don’t think you need to worry. I’m here, right?”
According to the records I looked at, all predators were mostly similar.
There was no one that was particularly strong or weak.
So, if I had killed Ionickel, there would be no problem if other predators came.
“Wow, you look cool, huh?”
Even though he said that, Eundami’s eyes were a little hard. I
could see that he was feeling something like, ‘This person suddenly changed because he gained powers,’ so I hurriedly waved my hand.
“No, that’s not it. I had many thoughts while looking at the past records. . As you continue to evacuate, the system accumulates enough resources to kill the predator, and when the accumulated resources are enough, you choose to fight instead of evacuate, and there is a chance that you will succeed. You were lucky, right?”
“But in the end, it was a success that would not have been possible without the people who sacrificed their lives so far.”
“So, no matter what happens, I don’t want to use this power to hurt anyone. And, unless it’s unavoidable, I want to take good care of the refugees who will come in the future.”
“The refugees coming in the future?”
“Won’t they come? Anyway, this is the only safe zone.”
“Are you saying there will be a new dungeon?”
“I think so.”
After the conversation ended, Ndam was silent for a moment, looking like he was thinking about something,
then smiled and opened his mouth again,
“Anyway, then there’s nothing new.”
“You can say that, right?”
“Anyway, I don’t think the system is smart. When resources are accumulated, why not just force them to fight? Take away all the power from the kings and give it to your sister.”
“Well, the system probably didn’t know how much to build up. That’s why it probably continued to recommend evacuations as carefully as possible. And I don’t agree that it’s not a smart system. It’s managing these calculations for all living things and across countless dimensions. That’s a lot of volume. Just managing it unmanned is amazing.”
“Well, now humanity won’t be able to make anything similar to this.”
After nodding roughly to what he said, I reached out to Seo Ji-han’s bean sprouts and started cleaning them together. Because I had
nothing to do, I was bored, and the sight of Seo Ji-han working alone was very uncomfortable.
Eundami was similar . He must have sensed it, so he glanced at me and started to awkwardly pick up a bean sprout and break it in half.
“Hey, I’m just trimming the small roots at the bottom. I don’t think you have a keen eye for attention.”
When Seo Ji-han, who was worse off, pointed this out, Yoo Eun-dam pouted and said,
“Why are you doing such a troublesome thing? Can’t you just eat it?”
“The texture is not good.”
“Since when did you pay attention to things like texture…”
“If it’s going to go into your mouth, you don’t have to worry about it. But how long will you be here? “Do you have anywhere to go?”
Seo Ji-han openly noticed with an expression that said, ‘I want you to leave right away.’
Eundami looked a little dumbfounded, but suddenly burst out in exclamation with an expression on his face that made him realize something.
“Oh, by the way, Seo-hu and Seo-jin suddenly went somewhere. Was it because of you?”
“What am I?”
