The 31st Piece Turns the Tables Chapter 165

Episode 165:

The search team led by Frannan poured into Alcatron.

We walked down the long stairs, taking careful steps to avoid slipping.

[The next adventure begins.]

[The twenty-second adventure begins.]

[Adventure 22. Alkatron]

Adventure 22. ‘Alkatron’

Thanks to your activity in the Water Mist Hills, the expedition was able to reach its destination smoothly. .

However, the expedition has not been successful yet.

Half of the expedition team to search for ‘Bornuill the Libra’ entered Alkatron a day early, and your group followed them.

There is something sinister about this place.

But even so, you just do what you have to do.

Finding balance.

Goal: Check Libra’s safety.

CAUTION This adventure is very dangerous.

Please note that situations in this adventure change from moment to moment.

Caution: This adventure is expected to be a long journey. Therefore, you may not be able to get proper rest.

Current remaining time 「Unknown」

‘The remaining time is… unknown?’

It’s not that there is no time limit, it’s that there is a time limit, but I can’t tell.

Kang Seol frowned and went down the stairs.

But suddenly a loud sound was heard from behind.




Mael covered Chameli’s mouth.

“This is a place where you never know what might happen, so you shouldn’t make any noise.”

Chameli argued with Bitan.

“Is that what you just said?”


Grief had no answer.

“Say yes quickly.”

Kangseol looked back and answered.

“It’s not heartbreak. The door is closed. “No, it would be more accurate to say that it disappeared.”

“The entrance… disappeared? “So are we trapped here?”

“I don’t know, but I heard that Alcatron reveals itself every night, so I think the door will only open at night again.”

“You need at least a day to get out of here…”

Kangseol asked Mael.

“How big was this place expected to be when excavating Mael?”

“I only remember that it was a huge ruin. “At the time, I was not part of the Relics Association, so I only had access to materials, and the excavation area was not that large.”

“Does that mean that even though only a part of it has been excavated, we can’t guess its scale?”

“Yes, that’s right. But… now that I think about it, it’s strange.”


As Mael nodded and thought about something, Chameli clung to him.

“Now, don’t joke around. “What’s strange?”


“It’s over! “I came down all the stairs.”

“Lower your voice. Are you planning to summon a monster?”

Mael seems to be thinking about something over and over again.

Kang Seol asked him.

“Mael, have any monsters ever appeared here?”

“Old corpses have been found, but monsters have never been seen. But…”

“Why are you doing that?”

“No, I’m not sure yet. “Let’s go further.”

Leap… Leap…

It had been a very long time since Kangseol could hear his own walking sound this loud.

‘It feels like I’m making noise alone in an empty auditorium.’

That means the scale of this Alkatron is considerable.

Frannan said.

“I haven’t seen a single other person yet. “Is it far to the excavation point?”


“Hey Mael?”

“It’s too much.”

“… what?”

Mael’s expression became serious.

“We have already passed the point where the excavation stopped a long time ago.”

“…Are you kidding me?”

“The space we are walking through now was originally full of rocks and rubble. But… somehow I can keep going.”

He said quietly.

“As if someone had cleaned the house knowing that guests would come…”


People began to murmur at the sudden earthquake.

“What does this mean?”

“I wasn’t the only one who felt it just now, right?”

“Something shook?”

Frannan raised his hand and spoke.

“You guys get ready.”


“Something… is coming.”


[Space transformation occurs.]

[Your body is stripped of its freedom.]

[You become a loner.]

[The hidden adventure ‘Lonely Dies’ activates.]

‘Damn it! ‘What the hell!’


Kangseol struggled to reject the transfer, but instead, his body disappeared even faster, engulfed in light.

* * *



The moisture that had accumulated on the ceiling fell down from my forehead.

Although it was only a drop, it stung quite a bit due to how high the ceiling was, and the temperature was as cold as ice water.


【Hey! “Don’t lie down and wake up quickly!】

“What on earth… happened?”

Kang Seol came to his senses and jumped up.

Adventure 22-1. ‘Lonely dies’

You have become a loner.

You can decide how to interpret this problem now after meeting other people.

As of now, no information has been obtained.

Goal: Find other search teams.

CAUTION This adventure is very dangerous.

Please note that situations in this adventure change from moment to moment.

Caution: This adventure is expected to be a long journey. Therefore, you may not be able to get proper rest.

Current remaining time 「23:15」

“… loners die?”

Kang Seol looked around with a frown, like someone who had read an ominous letter.

‘But why isn’t there light in the space itself?’

It was strange.

No, the strangest thing was that the search team was caught up in an unknown force and separated, but since we did not have enough capacity to find out the cause of the phenomenon, we had to solve the urgent problem first.



Kangseol took out a torch from his belongings and lit it.

‘Everyone probably has an emergency torch, but seeing that there’s no reaction…’

It was normal for this place to flicker with light.

But that doesn’t mean there is some reason.

“Doesn’t the light spread beyond a certain distance?”

[New information about Loners Die.]

[Other people’s lights seem to be impossible to see from a distance.]

‘… What is this?’

A phrase reminiscent of a room escape game. Kang Seol scratched her cheek and tried to continue her thoughts at the startling situation.



“As expected… there is no reaction.”

Someone suddenly appeared next to Kang Seol and shouted. It seemed like it was probably done to startle him.

There was something about Kang Seol that surprised him more than his actions.

“… who?”

– Excuse me, but who are you?

– I’m sorry. I mistook it for a person haha…

– Hahahahaha… who is it?

A handsome man who can be said to be absolutely perfect.

A man with a shining appearance was wearing a shabby robe, looking at the snowfall with a surprised face.

“… can you see me?”

“Can’t you see it?”

“That can’t be possible… I’m a ghost.”

“… yes?”

“You guys just arrived at Alcatron, right?”

– Haha, it’s a ghost. (faints)

– Oh haha, Jammin is still pulling pranks like that (he’s not breathing)

– Ah! surprised! Yes, let’s say I was surprised haha (I plan to sleep with my mom today)

Kang Seol was curious about this man’s identity, but she was even more curious about the secrets of this place that this man knew.

Still, I needed to know who the other person was, so I asked for the former.

“Who are you.”

“As for the respectful language… you can be comfortable with it! “We’re friends, right?”

“… It depends on your answer.”

“It’s tight… Don’t you often hear me say I’m stubborn? I’m a ghost? Look, ghost!”

The man put his hand on Kang-seol’s body, but the hand passed through her body like nothing happened.

“… Really.”

“Right? “Do you believe me now?”

“What is your name?”

“name? doesn’t exist. “No one here recognized me until I met you, so why do I need a name?”


“Would you like me to build one for you instead?”

“My… name?”

“huh! “You’re the only one who calls me anyway!”

“How about taking it easy as Tori?”


“Tori when I’m alone.”

– It’s hopeless! Snowman’s naming sense is hopeless!

– When you give birth, be sure to name your child at the Philosophy Institute!

– Why Tori? Cook… Cook… I like it…

– Is your name Seaweed Soup by any chance?

Tori smiled brightly and nodded.

“Okay, it means well! I’m Tori from now on. Well then friends! “How can I help you?”

“How did Tori become a ghost?”

“What happened? No, I didn’t do anything. “When I opened my eyes, I was just a ghost.”

“Hmm… You don’t have any memories from when you were alive?”

“at all! Maybe I’m a mutant? “He’s just a ghost!”

Kang Seol was laughing as if it was ridiculous and thinking about his conversation with Tori.


“What’s wrong?”

“Earlier… didn’t you say they were the ones here?”

“huh! These guys here! “Why is that?”

“Was there anyone here besides us?”

“Isn’t that obvious?”

Tori said with wide eyes.

“This is a prison, so of course there are prisoners!”

“… Mael’s guess was correct.”

Kang Seol actually felt at ease once he was sure of the purpose of the ruins.

‘If it were a prison, all the prisoners inside would be dead. ‘Because it’s such an old ruin.’

“What about the prisoners inside? Everyone is probably dead, right?”

“no. “Why are you dying?”


“We were locked up not long ago, but after the rumbling and shaking, everyone escaped from their respective rooms.”

“Damn… then…”

Tori pointed to the darkness in front with her finger.

“Look, one of your friends is being chased.”


“I think I’m going to die if I don’t save him quickly.”


Snowfall quickly ran towards the front.

Squeak… Squeak!


‘Monkey sound?’

Since there are no people who can leisurely imitate a monkey, the owner of this cry must really be a monkey.

There is only one monkey in the group.


Ukkii profit!

The monkey recognized Kangseol and ran to Kangseol holding a large piece of paper and hugged her.

[You are no longer alone.]



The addict repeatedly reached behind him and announced something.

‘There’s something…’


An insect as big as 2 or 3 times a person appeared.


Tori came next to me and said.

“Oh, it was that friend.”

“Do you know?”

“I was a prisoner on the first floor. “You must have a bad personality.”

“…First floor? Are you saying this isn’t the end of the ruins?”

Kang Seol’s insight was activated.



Grade: Rare

Estimated Level: 28~34


Basic Ability: [Unknown 2] [Unknown 2] [Unknown 2] [Unknown 1] [Unknown 5] [Unknown 2]

Special Ability: [Unknown 2]

“… You’re kidding, right?”


Why can’t the insight eye read the information of a monster that is at best one of the imprisoned prisoners, and why is that monster’s level as rare as that of a boss monster?


The giant mantis swung its front paws and rushed towards Kangseol.


[Takes the form of the shaman ‘Jammard of the Fire Thunder’ and a night raven.]

[Absorbs the abilities of ‘Jammard of the Fire Thunder’.]

[Occupation: Fighter status.]

However, no matter how rare it is and the level is high, it is still a night. He was not the opponent of Snow Seol, who became a crow.


Snowfall, who easily dodged the striking blow, slammed his right arm into the mantis’ chest.


It was a fairly strong shell, but when I pressed a little harder, my fist dug in deeply, like soft tofu being crushed.

It’s a joke!

Electricity spread throughout the mantis’ body.



The mantis’ eyeball exploded from the shock.


He collapsed in front of the snowfall.

[1st floor: Malkurium was defeated.]

Ghost Tori was looking at the mantis’ corpse with admiration.

“… I guess Malcurium is the name of the mantis. What do you mean by the first floor?”

“Hiyaaa… Are you strong? Malcurium cracks with one hit! And it exploded.”

“Please answer me. It’s the first floor. Are there more floors?”

“I did not know? “Alkatron is made up of several floors, and you have only just arrived at the first floor.”


“I’m talking about your eyes now…”

“Eyes? “You mean my eyes?”

“Yeah, it’s changing in a fascinating way, isn’t it? “I just turned bright red.”

“… no way. here?”


Kangseol closed his eyes tightly as the pain that felt like his eyeballs were about to fall out began.

The opening of the eye had already shown signs from the labyrinth of penance.

Insight has built up its proficiency by reading information from powerful enemies.

And I felt like I had just reached the end of my mastery while reading this Malcurium information.

“If you want to scream, you can scream. “Because there’s no one nearby.”

“… Ughhhhh!”

Soon, a great deal of pain came to Kang Seol.

[The eye of insight undergoes a great change.]

[The original blood intervenes in the change process.]

Status: Completed
Ever since he was young, Kang Seol had strange dreams every night. In his dreams, he was an adult wearing a mask and strange clothing in a peculiar world. ‘Alright, it’s time to roll the dice.’ The game in his dreams, ‘The World of Eternity’, in which he created and controlled character pieces on the table, was his refuge and his passion… maybe even his entire world. He enjoyed rolling the dice with the strangers in his dreams. He was happy… “How dare this insect not know its place and sneak into the heavens?” …until he became a piece on the tables himself.
