Jamard and Tantuinu destroyed the gateway at super speed while Snowfall was buying items at the madness store and listening to Lijigi’s request.
No, the expression “defeat” was not correct.
As Kang Seol said, I did nothing and just found the gate and passed through.
– In the underground garden, you can’t get anything without putting in any effort. Instead, if you don’t commit harm, you won’t be bothered at all.
To the first, second and third gates.
I met all the managers in each region, including the manager, but I did not have in-depth conversations with them.
I just asked where the next area was headed.
“Is this… the old hollow?”
There were traces of a broken tree so large that it was hard to even notice.
It was now empty, with only the tree bark remaining, but just looking at the size of the bark, which was nothing more than debris, was so enormous that it was overwhelming.
Is there anyone who knows why this tree was broken or why it is hollow?
‘No, if it’s Kangseol, he might know….’
The person closest to the world’s secrets is Kangseol. And it was Jamad who had read his memories.
Jamard thought that if it was snowfall, he might know all the secrets hidden in the underground garden.
“It’s amazing… this… this scale…”
Tantuinu was spellbound when he saw the amazing scenery hidden in the underground garden.
It feels like you’re in Pandea’s secret garden.
“… Let’s go in.”
This is what every manager I’ve encountered so far has said.
– But did you make a promise with the sleepyhead?
– It must be hard to meet a sleepyhead because he sleeps a lot…
– Do you need a seal?
They were talking about unknown things.
Jamard ignored it, thinking that the snowfall would take care of it anyway.
“I think this is the way to go together.”
The hollow had a path along the wall like a circular staircase.
It’s also quite dangerous, so it feels like if you accidentally lose your footing, you’ll fall to the bottom of that dark abyss.
Because the road was narrow, Tantuinu walked behind Jamaard.
Jamard didn’t say much on the way here.
“… Do you believe in snowfall?”
“Aren’t you worried? “Aren’t you worried?”
I would be lying if I said I wasn’t worried.
“Now we have to wait here for the dragon. “With snowfall that we’re not even sure will come.”
“He is coming.”
Tantuinu’s eyes wavered.
“Why do you trust humans so much? “Haven’t trolls and humans been enemies for a long time?”
“What is there to know about trite history that you don’t know? “Snowfall is my brother and is always correct.”
“That’s too much faith.”
“Trusting in a trustworthy person is not blind faith or shallow, unreasonable faith. “It’s called trust.”
“…Why did your mother entrust your future to you?”
“What you can see is that the work has already begun. Thanks to you, I am being chased by a dragon, so I just have to find a way…” “
“I can slowly see the bottom.”
Tantuinu’s gaze returned to Jamad’s words. Indeed, as Jamard said, we have almost reached the bottom of the abyss.
And this was the place where Kang Seol was waiting, ready for his best attack.
It was only after Tantuinu reached the bottom of the pit that he vaguely understood Snowfall’s intentions.
“Kang Seol was right. Surely, if it’s here… there’s no place to escape.”
Jamard sat down on the floor and closed his eyes.
Jamad quickly gathers a huge amount of magical power. Tantuinu, who was watching Jamad, asked.
“… Do you think we can successfully attack Azanic?”
“I do not know.”
“Then why take a gamble like this….”
“I said there was a possibility of snowfall. So be quiet. “You are the loudest dragon I have ever seen.”
Tantuinu was silent for a moment, then went to Jamad’s side and placed both hands on his back.
“… What are you doing?”
“Your mother’s energy is floating around inside you without being absorbed. Surely, if you make that magnificent power yours… you might have a little chance of winning.”
Jamard made a promise after checking Tancred’s rampaging energy.
‘I must… I must break the wall here.’
After a few hours the dragon will come here.
That’s when it’s time to win.
Shut your mouth and gather your strength.
Tancred’s words and her traces disturbed my mind.
‘It’s your revenge, Tancred. Please give us your strength.’
The energy of the earth, which had been acting violently, began to come together tightly.
* * *
“Thank you! It was a good deal! Now, let me give you a token of my goodwill.”
A round seal was engraved on the back of my hand.
Inside, a picture depicting a field was drawn skewed to the left.
[Obtain the fieldkeeper’s seal.]
[The sleepyhead may meet you.]
‘Even the seal… is done!’
If the deadly poisons that were planned to be collected step by step were the means of attack, the seal of the lifter was an important means of shaking off Azanic’s pursuit.
In the underground garden, Snowfall was to gather together the mysterious poisonous plants and the seals of the administrators.
‘Since we have secured the blinker flower and the seal, there is no reason to remain here any longer.’
Time is running out.
After remembering that Azanic was waiting for the ruins’ door to open again, Kangseol bid farewell to Dejigi.
“huh! If you go there, you’ll find a big cave! If you go there, it leads to the forest!”
“Thank you, goodbye.”
“See you later!”
See you next time.
Those words came to Kangseol in a new way.
His horse, ‘Charlie’, is one of the strongest horses chosen by Kang Seol, and he hated that horse the most when he went on a lore adventure here.
Because I never wanted to come back to this damn underground garden. The thought of running an errand across a continent seemed like a long way to go.
So, after inventing a few more seasons along with the lore adventure, I completely stopped visiting the underground garden.
I really thought I would never come here again.
‘You don’t know what people do…’
Kang Seol chuckled as he looked at the back of Dejigi leaving.
It was clear that my experience here would be of great help in my future work, so I had to prepare thoroughly and not get caught up in unnecessary emotions.
After a while, he arrived in front of a large cave.
Kang Seol took out the map in her head and thought about how this road would lead.
The underground garden had a linear structure, unlike the shape of common ruins.
In other words, if you just go forward, you can reach the deep end. If that is the case, the question may arise whether this is actually a disadvantage in the chase.
It was a reasonable question.
If you can catch up just by following the path, you will be killed by Ajanic.
The gateway we are looking at right now was the one that could prevent such a situation.
Gate 1, Gate 2, Gate 3.
Each field, forest, swamp, and even an old hollow.
This gateway connecting areas was in the shape of a cave, and the ceiling was high enough for even large animals or monsters to pass through.
‘Even immortals have passed through this place in the past…’ The
scale of the gateway was so large that even a gigantic monster named Immortal, which was somewhat overrated, could have passed through this gateway.
However, the gateway is just a gateway, and it would be difficult for a being like Ajanic to demonstrate special resistance.
Unless you come up with some trick.
‘Originally, I would have used managers…’
By using managers, it was possible to manipulate even the gateway. However, since these were labor-intensive and time-consuming, a different method had to be used.
He took out the steel silver grass seeds he had purchased in bulk from his pocket and began scattering them.
‘Is this enough?’
Steel silver grass was a very dangerous plant.
Its strength was comparable to that of a steel sword, and it even had the property of becoming hard when exposed to fire.
When it breaks, it loses its rare properties, so it was a bad material, but in the current situation…
‘It’s perfect for a barricade.’
By nature, silver grass grows at an incredible rate. Snowfall that scatters improved vitality powder that can strengthen the growth of steel silver grass.
Then the seed dug into the cave floor and began to grow furiously.
[I cultivated a wonderful steel silver grass field.]
[An unexpected talent! Learn Farming 1.]
[Crops collected have certain effects.]
[Involved in plant growth.]
The cave was instantly filled with steel silver grass.
I ground the blinker petals I had just obtained finely and placed them with the seeds of Pungpungi and sprinkled some vitality powder on them.
A large gourd-like flower quickly grew and hid in the crevices of the steel silver grass.
It was a plant that exploded at the slightest impact, scattering the spores inside.
And surprisingly, the flexibility of growth was excellent, so when powder from plants that had either poisonous or medicinal effects were used as fertilizer, the seeds even had the effect of absorbing the properties.
In other words, when that big pop pops, the poison of the blinking flower immediately spreads everywhere.
‘That’s enough for now.’
Snowfall, which blocked the first passage, headed straight to the next area.
When I came out of the cave, the forest spread out.
Snowfall was impressed by the sight of all kinds of birds flying over the trees.
The forest was full of bad memories.
“hi! “I am the forest keeper!”
A forest keeper who looked exactly like a parrot walked forward and welcomed the snowfall.
“Welcome to the forest, human!”
For your information, the forest keeper was the most talkative of the managers.
“Let me tell you a secret: you’d better be quiet in Sleepy’s territory. Kukkukkuk….”
“Are you curious about other secrets? huh? curious?”
[The talkative forest keeper asks if you have any questions. Do you have any questions for him?]
1. How was this forest created?
2. What forces are at work in the underground garden?
3. Where is the exit?
4. Who is the sleepyhead? What should I do to see a sleepyhead?
“I want to meet a sleepyhead. Is it possible?”
“Oh, you can tell me about that. Actually, it’s no big deal. “Sleepers really like us.”
“The managers! Because he takes care of the sleepyhead’s garden while he sleeps! So just show us well!”
Kang Seol quickly asked a linked question before the next option came to mind.
“What should I do to look good to you?”
“Uh… me? “Are you trying to impress me?”
“Then… you can do me a favor!”
“Okay, if you have a favor to ask me, I will do it.”
“Really? Then my request is….”
This is the part.
Snowfall was also the most important part of attacking Ajanik.
The forest keeper always made arbitrary requests. Sometimes he asked me to hunt down a huge wild boar that was destroying the forest ecosystem, and other times he asked me to chase away a water snake lurking at the bottom of a shallow lake.
If such work was done on his behalf, a reward was given along with a seal.
The reward is the poison of the being that was his bane.
This is exactly why Kang Seol was nervous.
‘I don’t have time to do you a favor twice.’
Which poison will be completed in the end will depend on the requests received now.
In the worst case, if the poison was completely formed and could not cause any harm to Azanic, he would have to just run away.
‘It would be appropriate to exterminate giant bees. ‘Giant bee…’
Kang Seol stared at the shape of the parrot’s beak and waited to see what kind of request would come out of his mouth.
“Hmm… I have a lot of worries, so what can I ask for… I’m worried about lizards and swarms of mosquitoes. And what about the birds that rot the fruit!”
“huh? What did you say? Anyway, I think the forest has the most things to do. I’m so busy working every day that I can’t rest properly… When the sleepyhead wakes up, I have to ask him to change. “You think so too, right?”
“huh? punishment? Punishment?”
The forest keeper nodded his head, then his eyes widened.
“that’s right! punishment! “I guess I’ll have to ask for that!”
“If that’s the case….”
“Punishment! Giant bee! Someone helped me in the past, but it quickly prospered again, right? “It’s hard because we can’t get to the area.”
Kang Seol’s expression brightened.
“this! What a big deal! If you don’t get rid of the giant bees quickly, they’ll only get bigger! “Giant bees keep getting bigger as they get older, and the sound of their wings is enough to scare you!”
“that’s right! Uh… but why do you know so much about it?”
When the forest keeper cringed and asked, Kang Seol grinned.
“Leave it to me, giant bee. “Because I prepared properly this time.”
“… this time?”
