The expressions of Kang Seol and his party turned cold when they heard that they were looking for a human summoner who was running a troll. Because everyone could guess who the human summoner was looking for.
‘Why are you looking for me?’
Mael looked at Snowfall and spoke to the group.
“They are looking for a trolling human summoner. “It seems like they are looking for Snowman.”
Chameli said in surprise.
“Uh… then should I say it doesn’t exist? Wouldn’t it be better that way? “What if I do something for no reason…”
At that time, the troll’s words were heard again.
“By the way, you all have to see Ungola anyway. Master Ungola is so mysterious that he can find out even if you hide it. If the circumstances of your hiding it are revealed, I will cut off the limbs of five of you as an example.”
Mael did not immediately interpret the words, but counted the number of people in the group with his fingers.
“One, two, three…”
“Why are you counting? “What did you say?”
“Oh, that’s it…”
– You’re counting this lol
– Are you checking to see if it’s your turn? Haha
– I see you realized the cruelty of Mael society early on.
Kangseol stopped Mael’s interpretation with a wave of his hand.
No matter how you respond, interpreting negative words will only add to the confusion.
[It looks like the Black Thunder patrol team is looking for you. How will you act?]
1. Stay quiet and hide.
2. Tell the truth to your group and follow their decisions.
3. Go in front of Ungola and confess.
4. Reveal your identity to the troll.
After thinking for a moment, Snowfall opened the window of the carriage.
“Are you by any chance looking for me?”
“hmm? “Do humans know how to speak our language?”
“To some extent. Rather, I can’t be the only person who meets the conditions you mentioned… Are there any other characteristics?”
“The work of Yognathun. “Do you remember the Sulfur Skull?”
He answered with a grin.
“Yes, I remember.”
“Were you there?”
“Has it anything to do with the downfall of that place?”
The spear blades of the black thunder all headed towards the carriage in which Snow Seol was riding.
“What should I do! “What did you say?”
“You seem angry… Did you make a mistake?”
“Everyone please calm down. “That guy will figure it out on his own.”
“What if it can’t be resolved?”
“I have no choice but to fight. “For now, we are being held back calmly, but we have enough power to fight back, so let’s wait and see what happens.”
Snowfall spoke to the Black Thunder leader with a cold expression.
“What are you doing now? Are you trying to take revenge on them?”
The vanguard waved his hand.
“Put down your spear, there is a long way to go.”
Once the spear was back in place, the tension between the search team and the Black Thunder troops eased a little.
“Phew… I guess it was a misunderstanding.”
“I think we still need to monitor the situation further.”
“What do you say?”
“It’s still difficult for me to understand the exact details.”
While Chameli and Mael were talking, Kang Seol spoke to the leader.
“If you’re trying to take us back and get revenge for that time…”
“Not at all. ” Tribes have individual lives. Although the Sulfur Skulls are a large tribe, our Black Thunders are an equally large tribe. “Unless the Brimstone Skull asks them otherwise, their work is theirs.”
“Then is there a reason you came to see me? “We have a long way to go.”
“Coming into our territory means they will use the road we occupy, and if that happens, it will save time.”
“It sounds like you can hold on to the time you saved….”
“If things go well, that won’t happen.”
Kangseol asked, not understanding for a moment.
“But how did you know I was here?”
“I didn’t know at all.”
“I guess fate brought you here. “Recently, whenever we encountered a group of humans, we asked them the same questions, and if the answers were not satisfactory, we expelled them from the territory.”
“… Have you ever killed someone?”
“If you need. Anyway, that’s it. “I’ve confirmed enough to confirm, so all I have to do is go to Mr. Ungola and confirm the rest.”
A tribe of trolls that I had never encountered because there was no required adventure related to the Black Thunder.
Kangseol had the best troll database that could be used in times like this.
‘Do you know Jamard Ungola?’
The answer came right away.
– It’s harder not to know. The current leaders of the Black Thunder are Ungola and Ungus. They are half brothers and leaders with completely different personalities.
‘Will their relationship be like your relationship with your brother?’
– It can’t be like that at all. From what I remember, Ungus is the older brother and Ungola is the younger brother. From an early age, Ungola’s physical abilities were slightly inferior to those of other trolls. In fact, Ungus was superior in ability.
‘But if you listen to the story now, all you hear is Ungola? Perhaps the chieftain became Ungola?’
– … No way. I haven’t heard any news from them since I became chief, but it doesn’t make sense for Ungola to become chief over Ungus.
‘Could it be that they were fighting for the position of tribal leader? Did Ungola win there?’
– I don’t know. I guess I’ll have to go there to find out.
* * *
The Black Thunder tribe located in the middle of the Water Mist Hills. The village was located on a high ground where the hills could be seen at a glance.
“It’s human! “You’re human!”
“Are you an intruder?”
“I guess I committed a crime! Human meat is tough and tasteless…”
“Will it be our turn?”
Chameli got off the carriage and walked forward, trembling as the trolls murmured.
“What are you talking about? Mael, what are they saying to us now?”
“… We are welcomed very warmly.”
“Is that so? “I…”
Mael walked forward, closing his eyes and feeling guilty for lying. It was quite a contrast to Chameli, who smiled and waved his hand.
“Fuhaha! “Is that woman smiling?”
“That woman needs special care, even down to her bones!”
Mael’s expression became more pitiful.
Snowfall asked the troll who led them here.
“Do black snails still eat humans?”
“They tend to punish criminals like that to instill fear. Normally I don’t eat it. Because humans have no taste.”
“If you are a sinner, what kind of sin are you talking about? “As far as I know, there is no interaction with humans.”
“For example, if you invade our territory…”
– You’re already a sinner, right?
– It’s already the death penalty?
– The death penalty is better than taking a bath and being thrown into a cauldron with carrots and onions. Haha
– This… I guess it’s a mess, doesn’t it?
– Extraterritoriality! Claim extraterritoriality!
When Kang Seol’s expression hardened, the leader smiled and said.
“Don’t worry too much. “If you are the person we are looking for, you will not be at our table tonight.”
“I will believe that.”
“Then wait here. “Ungola will soon decide whether you will be guests or intruders.”
The center of the village.
The size of the place was almost like a plaza, but it was even more surprising that the center was filled with enormous trolls.
It’s been a long time since I felt this bustling. Especially when their eyes are sparkling with madness.
“It’s been a while since I’m human! “If we sleep that much, we’ll have a chance to taste it too!”
For the first time, Kang Seol felt like she was losing money because she knew troll words.
thud-! thud-! thud-!
The sound of drums began to sound from somewhere.
“Oh, he’s coming!”
“Ungola is coming!”
“Everybody lie down!”
The trolls fell to the floor and hit their heads. And in that state, I quietly waited for something.
“What is it?”
“It looks like the leader is coming.”
“Are trolls really like this?”
“Each tribe has a different culture. “It’s the same for humans, right?”
“Yes, but… should we bow our heads too?”
“It won’t be like that. First of all, our treatment will vary depending on what kind of conversation we have with Snowman.”
While Chameli and Mael were talking, a huge palanquin approached. The palanquin, decorated with the bones of all kinds of animals, was magnificent in scale.
And the sight of the absolute being on top of him never felt light.
A troll charred from nose to forehead. Ungola appeared.
Ungola waved his hand.
Then the crazy trolls all became quiet.
“They are humans. All humans who step deep into the realm of black thunder become our dinner. Even knowing that, you dare step in….”
“Let’s quench our thirst with their blood!”
“Flesh! “You have to take the flesh off the bones!”
Kang Seol stood still with a calm and weak expression. Ungola looks down at him from a huge palanquin.
“It would be nice to have a festival with your blood and flesh, but I heard something interesting. “There is one among you who led the downfall of the Brimstone Skull?”
Kang Seol responded to those words.
“Ho… He looks like an ordinary human… but he has hidden powers like that. No, no. “It’s not your strength.”
Ungola’s eyes widened.
“It must be the power you are hiding now!”
The trolls began to murmur.
Not knowing what was being said, the search team’s expressions became more and more tearful.
“… Show me where. “Give me that power too!”
Kangseol swallowed his saliva and asked Jamad.
‘What should I do?’
– Since I’ve come this far, I should see your face.
Jamard’s shadow burst out from Snowfall’s grasp and stepped forward.
he was truly huge and much more intimidating than the other black thunder trolls.
“It’s Jamad! “It’s Jamard!”
“You were right that Jammad of the Mountain is alive!”
Everyone trembled and glanced as Jamard’s shadow appeared.
– what? Jamard was actually the alley leader?
– Jamard’s story ㄷㄷ
Ungola said to Jamad.
“It’s been a while, Brother Jamard.”
“yes. “It’s the first time since I died.”
“This is the first time since a competition a long time ago, right? But that atmosphere will still remain even after death.”
“Hmph, the kind of person who treats guests is completely different from your brother.”
“Hehehe… When you came as a guest of Ungus, you turned this place upside down, so you won’t have anything to say about it either.”
“Anyway, I was surprised once when I heard that my brother had died, and twice when I heard that he had appeared in Yognatun.”
Jamard said with a stern expression.
“Not even death can stop my ambition.”
“It’s that sound again. “My brother, nothing has changed.”
“You shouldn’t change until you achieve your ambition. But it’s strange.”
“Where is Ungus? “I want to see my best friend after a long time.”
The trolls reacted by flinching.
Something was strange.
“Answer me, Ungola, where is your brother?”
Jamard was suspicious that the Ungola had revolted against the Ungus and had taken over their place.
“No, it’s as good as dead.”
“What do you mean! Ungola!”
Ungola said with a weak smile.
“He challenged Ambika, the primordial god of thunder, but was defeated and cursed to wait in the Thunder Plateau.”
It had been a long time since Jamard looked this surprised. Kang Seol keenly felt his embarrassment.
“That can’t be possible… Why did Ungus ask Ambica…”
“Jamad because of your death. Ungus became impatient with your death and set out alone to break the blood pact that bound us.”
“You stupid b*stard! But… are you waiting? what?”
“Jamade it’s you.”
Ungola’s eyes became lonely.
“Kill my brother Jamad. “Kill that cursed body…”
“He is waiting for you in the Thunder Plateau, charred to death… Go find him and give him peace. “This is something only you, not me, his brother, can do.”
Messages floated in Kangseol’s field of vision.
[The conditions are met and a hidden adventure occurs.]
[The hidden adventure ‘Awaiting Beheading’ activates.]
