Snowfall The group took action as soon as they found out about the resurrected Branca’s plan. There wasn’t enough time to move delicately. If something seemed to help thwart his plan, he had to push for it without any hesitation.
“For some reason, the trolls have locked the doors and won’t come out.”
“Chu… it’s cold.”
“I think we should also be careful about frostbite. “If I do something wrong…”
Jamard and Kang Seol walk with great strides.
Jaune and Santio had no choice but to follow him. The cold was becoming increasingly severe.
Kang Seol looked back and said.
“Luckily there are no guards.”
“Guardian? What’s here… huh? Wait…”
“This is where preserved food is stored. Of course, in this cold, most food ingredients will freeze. It’s huge. So… are you planning to burn this place down?”
Kangseol touched his chin for a moment and shook his head.
“If we do that, it would be like admitting that there is an intruder. “We’ll just take a few steps and get moving again.”
A choice occurred to Kang Seol.
[This is the preserved food storage of the Glacier Maw tribe. Hunting in the snow rarely goes as planned, so food storage is a lifeline for the glacier anglerfish. But for some reason, the guard manning the storage room is nowhere to be seen. This might be an opportunity. How will you act?]
1. [Risk factor: Strong alert, detection and extinguishment] Burn the preserved food storage.
2. Break down the door and steal the supplies inside.
3. [Required: Poisonous] Contaminates preserved food.
4. Hide in the storage room.
Snowfall, integrated with Jamaard, placed her hand on the outer wall of the storage room.
Huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu of of the mountains…
The majestic energy of the mountain flowed down the outer wall of the storage unit and all the way to the ground.
Uddudeddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddutter utter trembling…
for a moment.
“It is done. Let’s go.”
“Is it over already?”
“Are you not even going to go inside?”
“Because there’s no need for that.”
A preservation cellar where Snowfall and Jamard took unknown measures. They appeared in a different location some time later.
“Whoa… the basement was structured like this.”
“Not only are they cultivating root plants here, they are also creating a path to travel underground… Be careful. “They are b*stards.”
A group of trolls circled around the hidden Kang Seol group.
“What did they say?”
“… A snowstorm is coming soon, so let’s finish it quickly and go in.”
“It looks like it’s an internal alert. “So, the fact that there is an underground passage like this…”
“I guess it’s probably to prepare for a snowstorm. “If there’s a blizzard, you won’t be able to go outside for a few days.”
Jaune widened his eyes.
“How many days? “You’ve been suffering from a blizzard for so long?”
“There are records. Human settlements have been free from the effects of the blizzard for some time, but the trolls live with the terrible blizzard.”
Jamard responded to Santio’s words.
“A blizzard in the north lasts at least two days. It covers such a vast area. “The reason the Glaciermaw values survival above all else is because it has survived this harsh blizzard.”
Kang Seol chuckled and asked.
“You know quite a bit, right?”
“No one likes talking about other people’s tribes more than trolls. Although they cooperate with each other, they fundamentally think that each tribe is better than the other tribes. Considering that the detailed story of the closed glacier maw has spread widely to our tribe in the south…”
Due to the blizzard, this ice castle will remain motionless for a while, hiding in its shell like a turtle. Believing that they were safe, they hoped that the blizzard would pass.
A choice came to mind.
[The Glacier Maw tribe’s residence has an underground passage. The exact purpose of this passage is unknown, but it appears to be of considerable importance to the glacier angler, along with the root crop fields. How will you act?]
1. Destroy root crop fields.
2. Follow the guard.
3. Break down the supporting pillars.
4. Find the underground water vein.
“This might be a good place.”
Hu Woo Woo Woong …
Jamad pours out the energy of the mountain on the exterior walls like when he stopped by a preservative storage. As if once wasn’t enough, he repeatedly muttered an unknown spell to the pillars and earthen walls supporting the underground passage.
“This much will be enough. Now the next one is the last one.”
“Ugh? What are you talking about! We now have to deal with this large fortress…”
“For now, let’s follow his words, John.”
Kang Seol and his party went outside and looked beyond the castle wall.
I felt not only the majestic mountain scenery, but also the deathly silence.
Jamard said after looking beyond.
Jaune and Santio turned their heads in the direction he was looking at.
“Yes, it’s a northern blizzard.”
There was a strong wind blowing that made my lips tremble. And the chill in the wind brought with it the fear of death.
“Isn’t this… dangerous for us too?”
“But it doesn’t mean there is no way. Right, snowfall?”
Kang Seol said with a grin.
“If your body is warm, even a snowstorm will feel cooler. Now, let’s go to the next location.”
* * *
A tremendous wind blew.
The person watching it outside the window tightened his fist.
Branca, with the glacier maw, was thrilled by the majesty of nature.
“It’s beautiful yet eerie.”
“A blizzard has begun.”
“I guess you were sufficiently prepared, right?”
“We have already completed not only preparations for the cold wave but also inspections of neighborhood facilities. “Also, the security guard was withdrawn early, so anyone who disobeys the instructions will not be affected by the snowstorm.”
“Okay, if you can overcome this ordeal, you can obtain the director’s little remaining spirit through a ritual. If that happens…”
Branca sat down on the chair.
“This Branca will get everything.”
“No one here can doubt that.”
Branca felt disappointed that things were resolved so easily.
He was one of the monsters who lived through turbulent times. You shed blood to get what you want, and when that blood freezes, you bleed from another wound.
Branca was a cold fighter.
Even as he proceeded with his plan, he had doubts in his heart.
Sitting on a chair and tapping the handle with his fingers, is he really that cold fighter Branca?
After escaping from the book, I chose a clear path instead of struggle. Is that the right way?
Have I become wiser with age?
Otherwise, maybe I’ve become more cautious as I’ve gotten older.
Or is it because I have become more fearful as I get older?
“When you get everything… you’ll know.”
In the end, only the results will remain.
Branca was miraculously resurrected and took over the world.
At that time, a huge glass filled with fermented liquor caught Branca’s eyes.
The fermented liquor in the glass rippled.
Someone’s voice caught Branca’s attention.
“What’s going on?”
A very ominous tone.
“Go ahead and say it!”
“Sigh… the pantry has collapsed!”
“… What do you mean? “Collapse?”
Branca unconsciously glanced at the glass from before.
“… I can’t believe I was just trembling… why! “Didn’t they check the security forces properly before they withdrew?”
“I definitely checked!”
“Hey… We have to retrieve them all before they freeze in the blizzard!”
“Even so, we sent soldiers through the underground passage. “Except for the damaged items, if we retrieve them quickly, we will be able to process them to some extent.”
“Hurry up. “There is not much food, so if you are not careful, you could go hungry during a blizzard.”
“We will send as many people as possible to handle it quickly! The cause is….”
“Find out after the snowstorm stops. “It has already happened, so make fewer sacrifices.”
Branca sits down on the chair again.
His heart started pounding.
It was the first time I had experienced this since my resurrection.
Branca, who couldn’t even guess why her heart was beating, sank into her chair and was lost in thought.
And after a while.
This time, a stronger vibration than before was felt.
A long crack appeared on the floor where Branca stepped.
“What… what on earth is going on!”
A person who appeared to be a subordinate approached Branca with a devastated expression.
“This… this can’t be…”
“The underground passage collapsed.”
“… What about the troops heading to the storage room?”
“The fate of most of them is unclear… no… there is a bigger problem than them…” “
… speak up.”
“The ground is collapsing…”
“To what extent?”
“Maybe… it will have an impact on the entire place… that…”
The expression disappeared from Branca’s face.
There was neither calmness nor coolness on his face.
“A blizzard… is coming into the castle.”
Branca gets angry and jumps up.
The damage to troops that had already occurred could not be prevented.
Action had to be taken as quickly as possible.
“… Call the shamans and gather them together. “I will block the wind.”
“Oh, I understand!”
While he was putting on his coat, his subordinates went to the place where the shamans were staying.
And after a while.
What returned were the subordinates who had gone to visit the shaman and the shamans who numbered less than half of the original number.
“The main shamans are gone!”
Branca’s heart pounded when she heard those words.
“Now I understand… a rat has crawled in. I’ll go in person! You guys, stop the cold from invading inside!”
[Jammad’s magic: Uses the enemy.]
[Creates a crack at the location where the mark is engraved.]
[If the intensity or location is such that a crack cannot occur, it is replaced with the same amount of impact.]
The shamans are missing, or dead. Of course, the person who led the way was Kang Seol and his party. Of course, they were the ones who destroyed the storage room and underground passage.
“How did they collapse the underground passage?”
Jamard answered casually.
“This body is the mountain shaman. You can quickly figure out where your weak points are. “It was decided since we had already entered the castle.”
The underground passage collapsed, creating a loophole in Branca’s castle. Now, a snowstorm is pouring down through that loophole.
Now that Jamard had done his job, it was Snowfall’s turn next.
“But… what on earth have you been making since a while ago?”
“It smells good. It doesn’t look very good, but…”
While the interior of the castle was in chaos, Kangseol and his party were in the galley.
Kang Seol took out the ingredients he had prepared in advance, poured oil into a large cast iron pot, and fried them.
A savory smell and an inexplicable sour smell mingled together.
And finally, something was completed in the castle that was in chaos.
[The dish is complete.]
[The stir-fried volcanic squid covered in peanut oil is complete.]
[It smells spicy. The cooking was successful.]
[This is a new recipe that has never been seen before.]
[Inspiration awakens.] [
Recipes seem to come to mind when encountering new ingredients.]
[My cooking skills have improved slightly.]
Monster cooking It wasn’t, but it was a recipe that Kang Seol was familiar with.
Stir-fried volcanic squid covered in peanut oil was a recipe that was quite useful in the past.
“I suddenly became confused for a moment as to where I was.”
Johnet and Santio thought it strange that Kang Seol suddenly suggested cooking, but since he said he had a plan, they didn’t complain and started eating the food.
“like! “This has a strange taste?”
“Delicious! “Even though it’s my first time trying this dish, it’s one of the best foods I’ve ever tasted!”
“Sweet… but it’s a bit spicy. “Do you have anything to drink?”
Kang Seol shook his head.
“You have to tolerate the spicyness of this food.”
“Jone… I feel a bit upset…”
“Is it like that for you too? “I feel like my stomach is boiling…”
Then Kangseol stood up and said.
“It’s slowly taking effect.”
[You had a hot meal.]
[The special effect of stir-fried volcanic squid covered in peanut oil is activated.] [
You will be in the ‘moving volcano’ state for 6 hours.]
[If you do not relieve the heat, you will experience terrible pain.]
“Ugh . ….”
“Now. “Let’s go outside.”
“Are you crazy! There’s a blizzard outside… ugh… ugh…”
Snowfall falling first.
Jaune and Santio have no choice but to follow him.
Snowfall opens the door.
A huge snowstorm raged.
“It’s dangerous! Open the door… uh… huh?”
“…Jone? “Are you… feeling comfortable now?”
“Is that the case for you too, Santio?”
“yes. That’s fascinating. “I can’t believe I just ate this…”
Jaune and Santio’s gaze turned to Snowfall.
“It won’t be difficult to move for a moment. Please follow me. Come this way!”
“under! Hahaha! “This is amazing!”
“The snowstorm doesn’t bother me at all. “Although the field of view is a bit limited.”
“It’s actually nice because it’s cool! But it really hurt earlier! “Couldn’t you have told me in advance?”
Kang Seol’s group moved into a brighter atmosphere.
“Can we go to the director now?”
“Now that the castle is in chaos, the guard force has probably been reduced considerably. First of all….”
Snowfall, who was running in the lead, suddenly stopped.
“huh? Why are
“I found it, you rats. “As expected, you were aiming for the director.”
Branca put aside other matters and headed first to the position of director of all things.
He said with a cool smile.
“How did you get over from the 6th floor? “That demon must have been guarding it.”
Branca seemed to be feeling joy rather than anger even though she met Kang Seol and his group who had messed up the situation.
“Tsk tsk… I did. “That’s how it was.”
“… What are you talking about?”
“I suspected it all along… “I don’t know if it’s me… but now that I face you, I can be sure.”
A blue spark seemed to fly out of Branca’s eyes.
“This Branca… was Branca. The thought of catching you and holding you accountable made my heart race. In return, I will bury you under the snow.”
Kangseol soon assimilated with Jamad.
“I heard a lot about Branca.”
“Who are you? “I’ve never seen this guy before… but does he know me?”
“Of course I know. “It is not the duty of descendants to not recognize the old man told about in a smelly book.”
“Tsk tsk… Ah, you are the descendant of this body, huh?”
Silence lingered between the two, and only the sound of the snowstorm continued to be heard.
Jamard was the first to speak.
Branca’s muscles swelled.
“Say your greetings along with your will. “There won’t be enough time.”
Cold Branca, a glacier-maw who uses ancient magic, has returned.
Jamard smiled evilly at him.
“Goodbye… go, old man.”
“I’ll kill you!”
