Daein goes to the hidden gambling hall on the 4th floor underground. Guided.
As I went down through the dark secret passage, a completely different landscape began to unfold.
A scream is heard from the bottom of the stairs. And the fishy smell of blood also irritated my nose.
The great man asked the old gentleman leading the way.
“What was that scream earlier?”
The old gentleman looked back at the great man with a kind smile.
“It’s nothing special. People who come here are not motivated by money, so they often end up betting on other things.”
“bet? For example?”
The old gentleman had a knack for telling scary stories with a friendly face.
“To put it simply, if you lose at a gamble, your body is mutilated or your eyes are gouged out.”
After a while, the two came down the stairs and arrived at the fourth basement floor.
Contrary to expectations that it would be much more luxurious than the 3rd floor, the 4th basement floor actually had a dark and gloomy atmosphere.
The great man walked slowly, looking around.
Long hallway. And the doors lined up on the left and right had only numbers written on them. The doors all seemed very thick.
It feels more like a dungeon than a gambling place.
The great man expressed his feelings honestly.
“No matter what you do inside, confidentiality will be guaranteed. “It’s not just gambling… I think you can plan other things too, right?”
At those words, the old gentleman stopped for a moment, then walked again and said:
“Some people who gamble here are reluctant to reveal their identities. That’s why we operate it this way.”
The great man nodded obediently, but was snorting on the inside.
‘This is just a gambling place?’
The presence and magical reactions felt everywhere far exceeded what Daein expected.
Moreover, those terrible sounds…
If the old gentleman had known how sensitive the great man’s senses were, he would not have even dared to think of bringing him here.
After a while, the two arrived in front of a room.
“This is the place.”
The old gentleman led the great man to a room with the number 7 written on it.
Sigh. When he opened the door, he looked back at Daein and smiled.
“I heard you like the number 7, so I prepared it especially for you.”
Inside the room, dozens of people were sitting around several tables and gambling.
As soon as Daein entered the room, there was a thud behind him! And the door closed.
At that moment, a sly smile appeared on the face of the old gentleman, who until now had been a good-natured man, but the great man standing in front of him did not see the smile.
“hey! Would you like to join here?”
One of the men sitting at the table turned to Daein and said.
“If it’s your first time, you can just watch a few games and then join in…”
He shook his head.
A man sitting in an empty chair placed a pile of black chips on the table. The black chip was only used on the 4th floor and was worth 30 times the value of the golden chip.
The great man said.
“What are you doing? “Don’t start too soon.”
Eat. A smile appeared on the men’s lips.
There were various types of gambling prepared in the room. But at this table, people were enjoying simple dice gambling.
“The simplest things are the most fun.”
The rules were simple. If you throw 3 dice and get the highest sum, you win.
However, a hand with consecutive numbers (such as 1.2.3 or 3.4.5) is better than a sum of numbers, and a
better hand is when all dice come up with the same number (such as 3.3.3 or 4.4.4).
“The best hand is 1.1.1 in a row.”
The man who heard the explanation nodded.
“It’s easy. “It’s just my style.”
The game started right away. Everyone bet their chips and rolled the dice in order.
The man who rolled 4.5.6 on the dice said with a grin.
“I guess I’ll take this plate.”
However, the laughter was effective only until the great man threw the dice.
“It’s finally my turn.”
The great man lightly rolled the dice one by one on the table.
One by one, the spinning dice stopped.
When the best hand came out from the first round, the men looked at Daein with puzzled expressions.
The great man looked at them with a grin.
“I guess I’m really lucky today.”
At that time, the old gentleman standing behind him nodded. Then the men quickly regained their relaxed expressions.
“Well, no gamble is lucky at first.”
“I guess it’s beginner’s luck.”
“Let’s keep trying!”
In fact, these men were not customers of the gambling house, but members of the gambling house.
And the person who made this board was the old gentleman standing in the back.
The old man, who was also the manager of the gambling house, looked at the great man with a cold glow in his eyes.
‘A kid who doesn’t even know the subject. ‘I will destroy you completely here.’
He knew from the beginning that Daein had cheated. But I pretended not to know.
Because although I had a mental illness, there was no physical evidence. There were too many eyes to accuse the other person of being a fraud without any evidence.
But it’s different here.
‘First, let me see with my own eyes what kind of trick you are pulling. After that, I’ll get down on my knees and pray for you. Then, limbs one by one…’
A kind smile appeared on the old gentleman’s lips as he recalled his favorite method.
“Then go ahead. “I hope everyone demonstrates their skills to the fullest.”
The game continued like that.
In the second time, the dice rolled by Daein came out 1. 1. 1.
The third time also came out as 1. 1. 1.
And then again and again.
The great man continued to manipulate the dice to make 1. 1. 1.
At this point, it was obvious that they were cheating.
“oh my god. “Can I be this lucky?”
As this happened, the faces of the old gentleman and the men became more and more distorted.
Even though I’ve been scammed several times already, I couldn’t figure out the method even though the other person was clearly defrauding me right in front of my eyes.
The men exchanged glances from time to time.
‘How on earth did you do this?’
‘I don’t know. But I’m sure it’s a trick.’
‘You bastard! They’re playing with us!’
A magical power detection magic circle was installed in the room. If I had used magic or artifacts, I would have been caught right away.
It wasn’t a swap or a play with hands. The great man simply threw the dice lightly with his right hand.
Even though it was so obvious, I had no idea how to do it. The men were on the verge of turning away.
‘What on earth!’
In the end, they were unable to figure out Daein’s trick until all their chips were gone.
He said as he swept all the chips on the table into the bag he brought.
“What do you want to do? Now, do you want to take a hand hair branch?”
A translucent spirit was hovering on the back of the hand of the great man who was treating the men.
Spirits made with ancient magic that have now disappeared had the advantage of not being caught by magic detection magic or detection devices. Although my strength was still weak, it was expected to gradually improve.
‘There is no way to notice unless your senses are developed to the level of a sword master or archmage.’
But there was no way a man of that level would be gambling in this room.
The great man whistled and got up from his chair.
“Then I’ll go. “This is an open review, so share it.”
Daein, who had thrown a few chips to the men,
was about to put the bag on his shoulder and go out when he swooped in.
A quiet old gentleman blocked the great man’s path.
It was frustrating, but there was only one option for him now.
“That sack. “Put it down gently.”
The gentle smile on the old gentleman’s face turned cold as he glared at the man.
“What are you talking about? “Is this the money I won?”
The old man glared at the man who was asking such an absurd question as if he was disgusted.
“I recognize your guts and skills. But the joke ends here.”
When the old man clicked his fingers, the men in the room all rose up and surrounded him.
Each of them had a dagger in their hand, as if it had been pulled out at some point.
The great man looked back at the men without saying a word. The old man, who decided that he was scared, showed his true colors and growled.
“I knew from the beginning that you were cheating. It seemed fun so I wanted to hang out for a while…”
The old man pulled a sword from his staff.
It hurt my pride that I couldn’t figure out the trick in the end. So, I was planning to relieve my unpleasant feelings from now on.
“I’ll make you confess from your own mouth what tricks you used.”
The great man said with a grin.
“Do you have any proof? “You can’t accuse someone of being a fraud without any evidence.”
“I guess I still don’t understand the situation.”
When the snorting old man winked, the men surrounding Daein attacked at once.
They were all trained by the old man himself. Not only his gambling skills but also his swordsmanship were better than most young knights.
However, the problem was that I met the wrong person.
Bub bub bub!
Men collapsing on the floor as they rush at each other. Literally in an instant, dozens of people fainted and fell to the floor.
The old man, whose eyes widened in surprise, shouted outside.
At the same time, he drew his sword and charged directly at Daein. Aura flowed over the old man’s sword.
“I’m roughly an intermediate sword expert…”
The great man muttered and threw the old man’s sword to the side. At the same time, he kicked up one of the swords that had fallen on the floor and picked it up in his hand.
And the moment the swords collided, the old man could not believe his eyes.
The sword with the Auror blade cut his sword in half.
The old man who was sitting down looked up at the older man and muttered.
“Why is the Sword Master…”
At that moment, the atmosphere suddenly changed, and a cold energy emanated from Daein.
“The person who manages the organization’s finances has poor eyesight.”
The astonished old man looked up at the great man. The great man looked down at him with an indifferent gaze and said.
“Do you think I pulled a prank like this for no reason?”
“What is that…”
The old man looked at the great man with a mixture of confusion and fear.
At first, I thought he was a kid who came to get a big hit at the gambling house by tricking him.
But it turned out that he was a sword master.
Moreover, he was now speaking as if he knew the organization well.
All the old man could do was be careful.
“who are you? “Perhaps…”
Instead of answering, the great man took out a crystal ball from his pocket. It was a crystal ball he purchased as soon as he arrived at the hotel.
“Are you really curious about who I am?”
The great man laughed coldly. Seeing his completely different appearance from before, the old man swallowed his saliva and nodded.
The great man injected magical power into the crystal ball.
As magical power was injected according to certain rules and sequences, a shape began to appear on the crystal ball.
A burning star.
The distorted shapes of demons carved on it.
It was a symbol of the secret organization ‘Pandemonium’ that had been hidden until now.
‘The goblin taught me quite a bit.’
Where and how to contact organization members.
With just these two things, the great man was able to guess quite a few things.
‘At first, it was all just a guess…’
In order to confirm the guess, the great man deliberately drew attention from the gambling house and came to the hidden fourth underground floor to check it with his own eyes and ears.
And I could tell for sure from the old man’s reaction just now.
This is their source of money, or one of them.
Also, they are operated by several branch organizations.
The great man took out the mask from his pocket and put it on his face in front of the old man.
A red goblin mask that looks like it was just dipped in blood.
A cold voice came out from within.
“I guess this is a sufficient explanation, right?”
Daein planned to blame everything that would happen from now on the Red Goblin.
