“Ahhhh! “The floor!”
Jooyeon Son screamed even though she wasn’t even hit by a hammer.
This was because the hammer hit the floor and left an ugly mark.
Karen took advantage of that opportunity and punched Kang Bo-seok in the chin.
Kang Bo-seok, who must have been extremely stubborn, continued to scold and swing the hammer.
“Ugh… don’t make fun of me! “Take out your sword!”
“knife? “It’s not difficult to pull it out, but I’m afraid I might accidentally cut it.”
In short, Karen was taking care of Kang Bo-seok.
Kang Bo-seok gradually began to get angry.
Karen didn’t use any abilities. Yet Kang Bo-seok could not touch even a single hair of hers.
There was a big difference in level, and I can definitely say that this was the first time I had met someone like this since I was transferred.
Kang Bo-seok came up with a plan to turn this situation around. It was almost an instinctive movement.
“Nothing like that…”
This time it was a swinging movement from top to bottom.
Karen easily dodged his hammer, which used a lot of force. But it wasn’t her that Kang Bo-seok was targeting.
His hammer rotated and headed towards Kang Seol, who was watching the situation behind Karen.
In an instant, shouts and screams filled the hall.
And in an instant, the sound went out.
Kang Seol’s left hand, which was partially shaped like a raven, very lightly caught Kang Jewel’s hammer.
People couldn’t say anything at that sight.
The battle hammer, which felt very heavy until Kang Jewel swung it, seemed light as if it had no weight at all when it was held in Kang Seol’s left hand.
Karen’s sword touched Kang Bo-seok’s defenseless uvula.
A drop of his blood ran down his uvula. If her sword moves even slightly like this, it will pierce her neck.
Karen sounded quite angry.
“Can I kill this guy?”
A question to Kang Seol.
He shook his head.
Anyway, Kang Seol was prepared because she expected Kang Bo Seok to do something dirty.
Kang Bo-seok gently raised both hands and said.
“I’m giving up the labyrinth.”
Son Joo-yeon slaps her forehead in despair! I hit it.
At that moment, someone using analytical skills shouted in astonishment.
“That thing… it’s a non-exaltation!”
“The sword she uses is unexalted…”
People’s eyes all turned to Karen’s sword.
The sword Karen picked was, of course, an ember.
The non-examination was correct.
“what? Non-appropriation? “Did you say it was not appropriation?”
“Is it still possible to obtain non-appropriated money?”
“What is it and how did you get it?”
Most of the time, the conversation took place in the form of interrogative sentences.
When it was revealed that Karen’s sword was an immortal sword, Joo-yeon Son clenched her teeth with a devastated expression, and Chang-sik Park shouted in triumph.
“I guess the conclusion is that this labyrinth token will be used by us, right?”
“… yes. I accept the result. “The person Mr. Changsik brought here would be more suitable as the last ascetic.”
“It was a good match.”
“This way too.”
As Karen stepped back with a leaden sword, Kang Bo-seok lowered his hand.
He wiped the cold sweat flowing down with the back of his hand because he had never had the experience of touching his uvula with an object called a sword.
Son Joo-yeon asked Kang Seol.
“But… I have one question.”
“Then is that woman entering the final door of penance?”
“That’s right. “That woman was the one who beat Jewel, but no matter how much we are together, two people can’t enter the same door, right?”
Karen burst out laughing when she heard that.
“Kahaha! You might think so. That’s right, that woman is right… ugh….”
“Why are you smiling?”
“Oh sorry. But you don’t have to worry.”
“If you put it that way…”
Karen said with a meaningful expression.
“Because we can do it this way.”
She became a black whirlwind and was sucked into Snowfall’s right hand.
A heavy silence fell.
Anyone could see that Karen, who used the haze ability, was an ordinary fairy.
But to be sucked into the palm of Kang Seol’s hand.
Jooyeon Son’s pupil lost her way.
“Uh… so this is… hmm… um…”
Kang Seol immediately resolved the doubts of the people in the hall.
“She is my pet.”
“… yes? I beg your pardon?”
“So, I must enter the door of final penance.”
“That can’t be possible…”
People were talking all at once as if a volcano had suddenly erupted.
“That doesn’t make sense! A summoned beast…”
“Now wait a minute. “Then you let the summoned beast take over the unappropriated money?”
“Isn’t this pure crazy?”
– That’s crazy haha
– Tell me it’s unique haha
– They made a fuss about throwing one of the 4 things (shrugs)
– Ah, who doesn’t recognize the cape haha
– I really… This is why the common people^^
Now it’s snowfall There could be no further disagreement regarding his selection as the last ascetic.
Kang Seol stood with the people appointed by Park Chang-sik in advance.
When we faced each other in a circle like this, we could see each side of the party.
“Then I will now brand you.”
The five people who were already in the party were engulfed in light.
[Your name will be engraved on the certificate of qualification (penance).]
[The Labyrinth of Penance adventure is scheduled.] [
This adventure is very dangerous.]
[This adventure is a linked adventure, so you cannot select the next adventure. ]
* * *
The work was completed without difficulty.
The rest period is now over.
All that remains is to enter the labyrinth.
After the battle to decide who would be the last ascetic, numerous people wandered around his residence.
Each time, people around Park Chang-sik stepped forward to fight him off, but it wasn’t much of a bother.
Every time something like this happens, Kang Seol has no choice but to think more carefully about revealing his identity.
This time, I had no choice but to use this method to enter the labyrinth, but if it had been any other time, I would have used a different method.
Anyway, thanks to Park Chang-sik’s consideration, Kang Seol started preparing various things in advance.
‘Breaking through the labyrinth is a marathon.’
The labyrinth was not a place where a conclusion could be reached in a short period of time. Of course, I don’t know if he goes in and dies right away, but Kang Seol wasn’t the type of person to do that.
‘I could stay for at least a month, maybe even more than three months.’
Considering that other adventures can be completed in a month at most, it would not be awkward to say that the labyrinth is a long-term game.
‘They say we need to prepare, but there is a high probability that it will be of no use.’
In particular, the Labyrinth of Asceticism is a place that carries suffering even from its name.
I had already experienced that place twice through words, but the feeling of experiencing it in person was different.
If someone were to ask Kang Seol if she was afraid, her answer would probably be this.
But I couldn’t back down just because I was afraid.
It was a betrayal of his words of always taking the lead in going to dangerous places.
One becomes an unscrupulous person who enjoys standing back and putting other inferior beings in danger.
‘If you can break through the labyrinth of penance, you will receive great benefits.’
I had to go because it was beneficial.
If he backs down because he is afraid, he will be contradicting all the actions he has taken to put his words to death.
‘And there are some things that can only be obtained by reaching the end of the labyrinth.’
It was a fact known to everyone who had broken through the labyrinth that the rewards of the labyrinth were much more valuable than those of ordinary adventures.
Could it be that kind of treasure that Kang Seol wants? Is it that or something more?
It was something he couldn’t know unless he reached the end of the labyrinth.
“It’s almost time, Snowman.”
Park Chang-sik came out to greet Kang Seol.
I had already made a basic statement with the party members who would enter the labyrinth together.
Kang Seol gave them nicknames instead of their real names, but no one was dissatisfied with that.
“I’m leaving now.”
I’ve prepared thoroughly, but I wonder if I can really use it.
Kang Seol followed Park Chang-sik to the place where the labyrinth actually appeared.
This place, a little far from Audenin, was overgrown with bushes, and its entrance was very similar to the ruins where Izumokan had been buried earlier.
‘The statue of an ascetic… there’s even that.’
A statue standing in pain with a large stone on its head stood at the entrance to the labyrinth.
The five people’s rest periods were different, but Park Chang-sik formed a party with people whose rest periods ended at the same time as possible.
Also, upon entering the labyrinth twice the other day, I checked and found that it was sent according to the time of the person whose rest period ended last.
Among the five, the one who finished the rest period last was Snow Seol, and soon the transmission would begin.
Since Jooyeon Son had already been sent to the next adventure, other guild leaders were present in her place.
One of the women said.
“Changsik, you can’t fail this time. “Did you know?”
“What kind of cheering is that?”
“Anyway. Make sure to succeed because Joo-yeon might get angry and upset again. And come back in style. ah! And you didn’t forget that half of the treasure you get is jointly owned by the alliance… right?”
“Yeah, you probably didn’t forget that half of it belongs to those who entered, right?”
“No problem, I signed the contract. Everyone… you must come back alive. “Even though Juyeon didn’t say anything, she was very worried about Changsik.”
“Did you hear it yourself?”
“No, it’s an estimate?”
“Hey… okay. And it’s not up to me to come back. That guy over there decides. “Other people just have to hold on.”
Kang Seol spoke amidst the clamoring crowd.
Park Chang-sik and the party members nodded. Someone among the gathered people tried to shout out support.
“Everyone, please… live…”
[The next adventure begins.]
[The seventeenth adventure begins.]
[Adventure 17. Labyrinth of Penance]
Adventure 17. ‘Labyrinth of Penance’
Aww The Labyrinth of Penance, one of the terrifying labyrinths that appear throughout the continent near Denin, has been discovered.
And at that point, a token of the labyrinth was also found on the biting Gaul, the silent Homuru, and the barbed Juri.
The two tokens yielded no results due to the ascetic’s lack of qualifications.
Now, one last remaining token.
You have branded the token with your name.
You have to prove it.
That you are a being who can move forward no matter what pain you bear.
The Labyrinth of Asceticism will watch over you.
Goal: Break through the Labyrinth of Asceticism
Caution: This adventure is very dangerous.
Current time remaining 「None.
The illusion of entering deep into a cave.
As Park Chang-sik explained, only the area in front of his feet was visible, and the surrounding area was completely dark.
“It’s the same….”
“Changsik, is this right here?”
“Yes, Jaeho. It’s here.”
Park Chang-sik also brought his beloved younger brother, Seong Jae-ho, here. That’s how much effort is put into this job.
He probably made some kind of gesture with his fingers, but I couldn’t see it here.
There was a door.
Ignorance, pain, doubt, patience
, and the door to penance.
To some extent, Kang Seol knew what kind of suffering lurked at each door.
And that nothing is easy.
“Brother… you said you would go into ignorance, right?”
“Yeah, because I went in last time.”
“I doubt it went as planned.”
“I am in pain.”
“I am with patience.”
Everyone was looking at the snowfall.
I couldn’t see it, but I felt it.
“I will go into penance.”
People standing in front of each door.
“I’ll go in first.”
The door of doubt opened and Seong Jae-ho disappeared.
The door of pain opened and Kim Tae-gyu, one of the party members, disappeared.
Kwiik… Jang Heung-
soo, another group member, disappears through the Gate of Patience.
“Then I hope to see you again.”
Park Chang-sik opened the door of ignorance and disappeared.
And when all the doors found their owners, a change occurred.
Clap, clap, clap.
The main chains at the Ascetic Gate in front of Jiang Xue were gradually breaking.
[Four doors greeted the ascetic.]
[The last door, the Door of Asceticism, is opened.]
Snowfall opened the door of Asceticism.
The snow disappeared inside and the door to penance closed.
[The door of asceticism welcomed the last ascetic.]
