“Kuachha! Get out!”
“Squeak… Kkeek Iik….”
In an instant, the fighting around stopped.
The moment the vicious mole leading them was caught by the opponent’s trick, they sensed something was wrong.
Kang Seol and Jamard said the same thing at the same time.
“So… it’s noisy.”
Kuakha met their eyes and trembled.
“Joe… I’ll be quiet, can I just be quiet? huh? “Quaagh, be quiet now…”
Kang Seol clenched his hands tightly.
Then the rock hand followed suit and grasped Kuakha tightly.
There was thick silence.
The sight of Kuakha scattered across the battlefield in six pieces was terrifying to everyone.
“What the hell is this…”
Yeba and Ishii hesitated and retreated.
Kang Seol said.
“It seems a little quiet now.”
Snowfall released the suppressed energy. Dark shadows fluttered and scattered in all directions.
“Run away! “We must run away!”
“Dangerous! “He is a dangerous shaman!”
of of a sound…
The rock hand that was holding Kuakha until just now floated up.
Jamard is the leader.
Among them, what has changed since becoming a pillar of the earth.
Now the source of his mountain could continue to recover.
The rock hand floated and fell down, crushing the moles.
Doo doo doo doo doo!
A rock fragment got stuck in the mole’s head.
Perhaps out of loyalty, the moles turned and ran backwards, ignoring the formation, saying they wanted to survive.
In the process, numerous moles were killed by the glacier maw.
Burtul was breathing heavily.
And those who look at the garrison where the moles left with a nervous expression.
Kang Seol, who easily took out Kuakha and defeated the moles alone, looked like an absolute master.
“Great… Great… Great Lord!”
“The Great Lord has appeared for Glacier Maw.”
“Lord! “Us… us…”
In troll society, warriors and shamans were the mainstream.
And among them, the Great Shaman had the status of a leader.
And higher than that, the pillar shamans, the single most powerful shamans who supported the attributes, were revered as if they were gods.
Since trolls could not become gods, they were revered as those closest to serving the original god.
The shadow of the snowfall grew huge.
Jamard’s eyes scanned everyone.
“My lord… my lord… why are you here….”
“It’s Jamad of the Rock Fang.”
“Jamade… the news from Glacier Maw is… slow. “I don’t know your name.”
“You will remember from now on.”
“Then we… we…”
Burtul asked after defeating the shaman who was trying to stop the bleeding.
“Can you survive? “Are you able to protect this land that our ancestors passed down to you?”
“I came forward for you…”
Jamard laughed creepyly.
[Involvement in the fight between Force: Emon and Force: Glacial Maw.]
[Force: Emon is watching you.]
[An unexpected adventure, ‘Whack-A-Mole’, occurs.]
* * *
“Teach a lesson!”
“Teach me, great lord!”
When the snowfall prevented the moles from attacking, the response of the glacier maws was very conflicting.
Those who are wary of the purpose for which the Pillar of Earth came to Hygeltongue and what its ulterior motive is to help the Glacial Maw.
Also, unlike these, there are those who worship Kangseol and Jamad.
Unfortunately, due to Burtul’s lack of ability, the presence of Kang Seol and Jamard tended to be exaggerated.
Burtul readily acknowledged this.
3 days from the day of the attack.
“It’s all because of my shortcomings…”
He sat down on the bed and mocked himself for a while. Snowfall did not respond very well to that.
“But how did the Great Lord come here? “Hygeltongue wouldn’t be a good place for training, right?”
“There are circumstances.”
Even if I told you that I flew all the way here due to the explosion of the boundary stone after the Great War, they wouldn’t believe you anyway.
“Are you really… trying to help us?”
“I guess there’s something you want, right?”
Kang Seol nodded.
The other party will also notice.
For a person of the caliber of a great lord to take full action in a power struggle would mean that he wants something.
“A staff said to have been used by a mole named Chrome.”
“Surely… you want that artifact?”
After hearing Kang Seol’s words, Burtul looked much more relaxed.
“You won’t have to suffer from groundless anxiety. It’s not even a tribal relic in the first place. “It would be welcome if the great lord took that cursed object.”
Burtul now showed a polite attitude towards Kang Seol.
The Great Lord was a very rare strongman, regardless of his tribe, even within the Troll race itself.
Just as the elders of the tribal alliance have great authority in other tribes.
“But… I ask you something.”
“As much as you want.”
“Who is she?”
“It seems like the mole knows… I need to know too if I’m going to deal with them.”
During the battle, Kuakha asked Burtul about her whereabouts. It would be good to know who she is and where she is now that she is an ally.
“… I’ll tell you everything. “Please follow me.”
Burtul wore leather clothes with patterns on them and led the way to the basement of the temporary camp.
Burtul opens the secret door that was locked with a spell with sweat pouring down his forehead. In a way, I felt like I had become Kang Seol’s subordinate.
– Burtul! It’s so pitiful….
– It’s sad because it’s like watching the law of the jungle.
– The more you twist, the stronger you become! Strong and weak! Because snowmen are always strong!
When the door opened, moisture poured out.
The moisture that moisturized my face gave me a refreshing feeling I had never felt before.
Snowfall reaches out and sweeps the moisture with its hand.
‘I feel magical power. ‘It’s not ordinary moisture.’
Seeing that Snowfall’s expression had changed, Burtul held up the torch and spoke.
“I guess the great lord felt it too.”
“She is here.”
“It’s a space that feels like that. “This is truly incredible magical power.”
Burtul shakily held out his torch forward and started talking about the past.
“I remember the first time I saw her.”
“How was it?”
“It was like encountering the cleanest… purest being in the world…”
Jamard answered instead.
“They are usually like that, and their appearance brings about a lot of service and a lot of obedience.”
“… Maybe so. “When I saw her hiding behind my father and when she smiled at me, I swore.”
Burtul said, looking at something beyond his reach.
“I will protect her to continue the will of my ancestors.”
“It is the will of our ancestors….”
“Do you know the origin of the glacier maw?”
Kang Seol grinned.
“As much as is known.”
“It has been a long time since my ancestor settled here. “We have ruled Hygeltongue for a long time, but we lived elsewhere even longer.”
“We are descendants of the waterfall. “The now-vanished… Soul Shower tribe was our predecessor.”
Lack of soul showers.
Mountains clouds sulfur lightning gusts and waterfalls.
In the past, the six different troll tribes lived separately.
Each person adapted to all things by borrowing the power of the god they worshiped.
The Soul Shower tribe are those who inherited the power of the waterfall. They grew into a large tribe before other tribes in the past.
Water is an attribute deeply related to the conception of life.
The trolls handling it were also aware of this.
However, conflicts with other warlike tribes became frequent and even became so large that fights broke out even within the Soul Shower clan.
In the end, a big crisis came to the Soul Shower clan.
“A curse has fallen on the land we were staying in. “An epidemic came and many people’s flesh flowed out and turned into a swamp.”
It’s an epidemic.
Even the power of Genshin cannot overcome it.
“We left the land. In the end, everyone who remained died. In the end, we were pushed back and forth and settled in barren land.”
Burtul looked helpless.
“That place is Hygeltongue.”
“Did the waterfall lose its power back then?”
“It’s not exactly lost. “Once again… we just can’t get it back to its glory.”
“They say we can’t regain our glory….”
“Our power has frozen solid and become the power of a glacier. Sometimes… very occasionally there are children who are born with the power of the waterfall…”
He shook his head.
“Now that power cannot take root.”
“Because my father Bronn has passed away.”
“Do you know your father?”
“You’re kind of… knowledgeable, right? “Are you friendly with me?”
“… Are you saying we are friends? Ah… Hehehe… My father didn’t like humans very much when he was alive. So, I’ll just listen.”
Burtul didn’t believe what Kang Seol said.
After all, so much time had passed and Snowfall and Bronn would not have lived in the same era for even a single day.
“Father… was the last spark of the tribe.”
“The golden age of the Glacier Maw.”
“Yes… Bronn’s era was considered the era when Glacial Maw was the strongest, rather than Branca’s era. “Branca obtained a spell from the distant past to control the mighty power of the glacier… and Bronna’s father controlled the almost pure power of the waterfall.”
“The power of the waterfall….”
If there is one thing I regret about my time at the Library of Mankind, it is that I did not witness Bron’s power.
Bronn of the Great Wave, who went down in history as stronger than the infamous Branca. It was a shame that I didn’t have a chance to check if the reputation was true.
“Wow… it’s a long story. “I am not the person you want to talk to.”
Snowfall reached the deepest part of the underground.
The sound of water falling from the ceiling was heard.
“Then… let’s talk.”
The mysterious water that gave off colorful lights had no flow whatsoever.
As if there were no fish alive, it stopped still and showed off its transparency.
“Madria! “Wake up!”
“Heroic spirit of the waterfall! Please now…”
– Argh! Noisy!
A wave of water arose and something in the shape of a young troll was created.
Strangely enough, her body was made up of water that could be seen penetrating her entire body.
[You witness a wondrous being.]
[Wisdom increases permanently by 5.]
Same message as when facing Purga.
– human! Wait, you helped our children?
“… were you watching?”
– Of course! I see very far.
The heroic spirit of the waterfall.
She was right in front of Snowfall.
