Frannan, Chameli and other pilgrims look at the round pearl with anxious faces on the magic circle.
As the wrinkles between everyone’s brows deepened, Marcon, the holy priest, bit his nails and said.
“I’m really anxious….”
“Don’t be unlucky.”
“Aren’t you eaten by that demon?”
“If he was that kind of guy, he wouldn’t have put it in in the first place. And you didn’t say anything pitiful about dealing with demonic spirits.”
“I understand your concerns. But being quiet will help you and all of us.”
That was then.
The pure white pearl began to shine in various colors.
“… I guess it’s over.”
Marcon pointed at the pearl.
“The sword… it’s black!”
As he said, the pearl turned black at some point and showed no change.
“Pilgrims! I prepared it…”
“Stop! “It’s something we don’t know yet.”
While Marcon and Frannan were debating, something came out of the pearl.
Frannan must have been nervous, but as soon as Kang Seol appeared in the hall, he shouted and asked.
Kang Seol smiled silently.
The reaction of many people who saw his smile was that their bodies went limp as if they had relaxed.
“But why is Jinju…”
“Isn’t there a reaction?”
Their doubts were soon resolved.
Messages floated through Kang Seol’s vision.
[Great experience! Jinju’s test has been completed.]
[All abilities increase by 2.]
[Snowman’s succession ceremony ends.]
] There has been a change in Jinju.
First, the part that was black was gradually pushed to the center, and the remaining part became white.
And the pearl slowly transformed into a new form.
“… A lantern?”
And the pearl changed into the strangely shaped lantern seen in the black space.
as the lantern floats in place, a chain was created and wrapped around Snow-seol’s hand.
[The pearl changes into a form most suitable for the heir.]
[Danger! The pearl is mixed with impurities.]
[The pearl embraces the impurities and replaces them with power.] [Relic
: Grief is born!]
[Achieve the first achievement, ‘Metamorphosis.’]
[Achieve the first title, ‘Collector.’ I do.]
Kang Seol’s eyes widened after checking the message.
‘Castle… a relic?’
A relic is a relic, and a holy relic is a holy relic.
If it is an abomination, it is an abomination, and if it is a treasure, it is a treasure.
Usually, equipment grades in the Eternal World had a clear grade system like that.
‘Is it literally a variant?’
[First title: Collector]
Related achievements: Variant (Adventure: None)
Special ability: When wearing one or more relics, resistance to all status abnormalities increases by 20%.
– … Why are there all these bullshit titles?
– Shouldn’t titles affect specifications?
– In order to increase resistance, you have to be ‘forced’ to wear a relic? There are conditions haha
– I see haha Ah, if you are forced to wear it, there is a problem.
Although Snowfall has used equipment of a higher level than this, she has never used equipment of this unusual level that is not even listed in the settings book.
‘Is it because of the presence of grief? Then the ability is…’
[Sacred Relic: Lament]
Appropriate level: 30 – 40
Attack power: 100 – 100
The pearl, an ancient holy relic, is the successor’s treasure. A precious object that changes according to will. A strange tool that was made possible through the help of a master enchanter during the succession process to effectively deal with demonic spirits, which are a conglomerate of magical power, without much opposition. A singularity was created by combining the characteristics of the monster and the Jinju’s characteristic of growing together with its successor.
Basic ability: All abilities + 25
Special ability: Adjuster (special point) Various (unique) action Blood connection (unique) action Treated as an abomination and a holy object. Only one relic can be worn at the same time. When the demon spirit does not disappear, durability slowly recovers.
‘What’s special? A singularity appeared?’
The peculiarity was that it had an effect that affected the wearer’s overall abilities.
‘Even though the level is still low, it’s a singularity….’
– Shadow summon’s abilities increase by 20% Season: When using a night crow, the attack power of Lament is doubled and applied. When using a shadow summon, the summon’s attack power is doubled. Higher ability transmission probability increased by 40%. After using Iron Fist, all magical power consumed has a 10% chance to be recovered. Maximum shadow space increases by 900. The completeness of the creations you create increases.
‘This can’t be right…’
The singularity was nothing short of a bomb that increased one’s abilities enormously. This has resulted in all-round growth commensurate with the abilities and characteristics of the wearer.
Singularity usually occurred in crafted equipment or old artifacts that were imbued with the user’s magic.
– Why are there so many?
– I thought the special ability was simple, but when I looked at it, it was really messy lol
– Is this a pearl wash? Or heartbreak?
– Is that really important here?
– Depending on the will of the wearer, the demonic spirit changes the form of the equipment into the form of armor.
‘Is this an ability created due to the shape of a night raven?’
Normally, it was in the form of a lantern, but when it took on the form of a night crow, it seemed to transform into a armored form like a mountain’s fist.
[Bloodline Communication (Unique)]
– The demonic spirit immediately feels the wearer’s will. Additionally, as the wearer grows, the connected demon spirit grows together, which promotes the growth of the entire equipment.
‘Growth of equipment…?’
Perhaps this was grief’s original ability.
The ability to become stronger the more you drink the blood of your enemies.
It seemed like the strengthening had extended to blood flow.
‘And if this thing is treated as both an abomination and a holy object…’
The abomination bonus will definitely come into play.
[There are currently 2 monsters being worn.]
[In addition, all abilities increase by 10.]
[In addition, the magic consumption of all abilities is reduced by 10%.]
Just as Snowfall is admiring and is about to snatch away grief.
“Uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu once… once… still…
still… still… still…)….)…”)…”) a dark light shimmered from the white lamp.
Sssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss going going going for it?
Frannan was on guard.
“It looks like he’s waking up. “Be prepared just in case.”
“This is the most important part, so everyone focus!”
When Kangseol slowly stretched out his hand forward, the lantern floated and flew in his direction.
【My head… my head hurts!】
“Has Sadan woke up?”
Frannan asked as he saw the grief stirring in the lamp.
【hmm? Ah… is it that old human?】
“Yes, that’s right. “How are you feeling?”
【It feels like death… Was I dreaming? Kihahahaha! But I don’t want to think about anything now.】
The voice of grief was still so hideous and scary that it reminded me of the devil.
The pilgrims lamented and prepared to accept the outcome.
“It is clear that we failed….”
“It was impossible from the beginning.”
“Bishop, prepare the purification ritual right now…”
At that time, Frannan raised his index finger to his mouth.
‘Please shut up!’
Frannan, who conveyed his intention like that by licking his lips, smiled brightly and tested his grief.
“Ban, what bad things are you planning to do today? “Tell me too.”
The grief that had been resting in the lamp found its color and burned.
【Yes, yes! I forgot about that! Still… there’s something really bad that comes to mind right now about this misanthrope. Bitan is a malevolent genius! Tsk tsk…】
Even Frannan couldn’t be more hopeful.
Frannan quietly mutters, ‘Is this a failure?…’ As if to confirm his feelings and kill him, Grief repeatedly said harsh words.
【I plan to do something incredibly bad! This is the happiest time for me!】
“So… what are you planning to do?”
At a time when everyone was secretly reaching into their arms with purification in mind, Bitan spoke.
【Tonight… I have to sleep very late.】
【I’m shaking just thinking about it!】
【Hey, should you join in on my bad behavior?】
“No, I’m done.”
【why? Is your heart pounding? This is why humans… Ah! I just can’t stand it! I need to take a nap from now on. So you can sleep later!】
The pilgrims’ faces were horribly distorted. As if I had witnessed something that shouldn’t exist.
“This is a demonic spirit… It’s not the demonic spirit I knew…”
“It’s something I’ve never heard of before…”
“Oh my god!”
– Am I, who was the worst demon in reality, a child of a new country in this world?
– Life is precious! Hehehehe…
– My ambition is world peace… Hehehehe…
– I love you, Mom and Dad Hehehehe…
– This is fun. If you just add ‘tsk tsk tsk’ at the end, it makes you look like a villain. T tsk tsk tsk…
Frannan smiled and said quietly to Kang Seol.
“It looks like you successfully tamed it. “He’ll probably think he’s the greatest evil in the world for a while.”
“Wouldn’t we eventually realize our true nature later?”
“Don’t worry. No matter what you do, you will not be easily tainted by evil. Because that’s how it was handled. The power of the holy object is also strong. “You can act however you want.”
“… thank you.”
With an expressionless face, Kang Seol dragged the chain connected to grief.
As the lantern swayed in the wind, Bitan screamed.
【hey! It’s shaking! I’m just hitting a wall! … is it? Are you doing something naughty now too? Tsk tsk tsk… this is fun. How dare you challenge me… I will make a farting sound with my mouth in a place where there are many witnesses. You don’t say it, but everyone thinks it’s you.】
* * *
Frannan’s villa located in the Timbrian.
Although this was a villa, it was large enough to accommodate up to 20 people on a regular basis.
The fact that he was able to maintain this level of employment even when he was away showed that Frannan’s wealth was so great.
Anyway, Frannan had now returned here after finishing his work with Snowfall and was drinking strong distilled alcohol.
Because you feel thirsty?
Are you drunk as always?
Neither was he.
It was because there was a good reason to drink strong alcohol.
He is still a wizard of the Aspect.
Even if he had escaped the hands of the Magic Tower for some reason, he was related to that place.
People from the Magic Tower have been from the Magic Tower their entire lives.
“Master, your guest has arrived.”
“Yeah, that guy. “Guide me here.”
Snowfall appeared along with floating grief.
“You’re here, sit down.”
“If you’re walking around with something like that floating around, you’re going to be suspicious wherever you go.”
“… “You have to endure it.”
The alcohol filled Frannan’s empty glass.
“You promised to repay me in return for helping me… You didn’t forget, right?”
Using the power of pearls to help you deal with heartbreak.
Kang Seol decided to help Frannan with one task as long as he did it.
“Yes, I remember.”
“… Sometimes there are moments like that when doing business.”
“What moment are you talking about?”
“When you see the benefit. “It’s as if the goods I was supposed to receive in return for selling my goods became extremely expensive overnight.”
“… Are you saying that Frannan has benefited?”
Frannan’s expression hardened.
Kang Seol pondered his words.
‘I decided to help him, but the value of that help suddenly increased? What do you mean…’
Kangseol asked Frannan.
“In the meantime, the work I was supposed to help with suddenly became difficult.”
“That’s correct. And I really don’t like this benefit. “As things became more difficult, I became more distressed.”
“Not long before you came, the Libra Magic Tower, where I worked, asked for a favor.”
Frannan took a sip of his drink and continued.
“The tower owner is away for a while, and as a result, the unity within the tower may be disrupted, so I ask that, if possible, I, as one of the saints, take my place in the magic tower.”
“I guess you refused.”
“I refused, but changed my mind halfway through. After meeting you.”
“Yes, it might be boring if you go alone, but it’s different if you have a companion. So I decided to take you with me and show you around. And…”
A letter with its seal torn was placed in front of Kangseol.
“Read the letter, it arrived today.”
Snowfall skimmed through the mysterious letter.
And when his gaze reached the end of the letter, his eyes became bleak.
“Is this… really?”
“Can’t you believe it? “So did I.”
Frannan put down his glass and said.
“The owner of the tower has gone missing. “A search party will probably be formed.”
“Of course I have to go and of course…”
He laughed. It was a self-mocking laugh.
“You too are together. “There is no right to veto.”
A message came to mind.
[The Libra Search Party adventure is scheduled.]
[This adventure is very dangerous.]
[This adventure is expected to be a long journey.]
[This adventure is a linked adventure, so you cannot select the next adventure.]
“Where will the owner of the tower go? “I heard this at first glance, but I think things are going to get really messy.”
