The stabilization of the central axis of the Zando Altar was successfully accomplished.
However, not all problems were solved.
“Do you mean to hell that we still haven’t found a single rat?”
“I’m sorry! “We will report to you as soon as the news comes!”
High Priest Zando complained, but did the first thing he had to do.
The flame tattoo on his face shone like a fire.
The magic power he possessed showed its power by emitting smoke.
If only the central axis were to return, he would personally search the entire altar to find the rat.
“Master Magra! I’m sorry to disappoint you. “It looks like your subordinates haven’t found the rat yet.”
“It is done. “It’s because the Sulfur Skull commanders aren’t here.”
“Thank you for your understanding.”
“Now that it’s like this, I guess I’ll have to go there myself. There’s no way there’s still no news from the guys I sent down… I guess that’s strange.”
At those words, Jando shook his head.
“Have you not noticed, Magra? It’s obvious what the enemies are aiming for. “Isn’t that me?”
“Are you saying they’re going to take advantage of the confusion to target you?”
“It makes sense. Anyone who knew of the existence of the central axis and touched it would have expected that I would use my power to prevent the temple from falling. And the enemy is planning to target me when I am defenseless!”
“… It’s definitely not something that doesn’t make sense. But what about the armory, military storage, and liquor store? “Wouldn’t those places also be exposed to their threat?”
Zando nodded at Magra’s words.
“It is an inevitable sacrifice. If enemies target that place, I will be safer. Now that things are like this, the dispatch of troops will be delayed a little.”
“And I am saying this despite the shame of Zando, who has become warchief. I hope that Lord Magra will protect me from threats, at least while I am correcting the central axis of the temple.”
“It’s not difficult. “Who will target you when I am here?”
“thank you! “It won’t be long before the pivot will return to its original position.”
Postponement of military deployment.
Make appropriate sacrifices.
Once this code of conduct was established, things became much simpler. All I had to do was sit here quietly, strengthen my shield, and protect Jando.
It was not necessary to dispatch troops right away, and the Wonsinje ceremony had not yet taken place.
Magra’s keen senses pointed out a loophole in this plan.
“Who is at the torch?”
“We have dispatched some troops there. “The other priests are coming here before it gets dangerous.”
“If the enemy is targeting Genshin…”
“How can they know of its existence if they don’t even know how to call Genshin? “It seems like Magra is overreacting.”
What Zando said was not wrong.
In Pandea, the only people who served the original god were trolls and other primitive races.
‘Wait, something’s strange?’
Magra continued to think, unable to shake off the uneasy feeling.
As long as the enemy broke inside, touching anywhere was fatal to the Sulfur Skull.
While they were worried, a messenger approached them.
“Zando! “They say additional troops are almost here.”
“It would be awkward to bring it to the altar in such a chaotic time.”
But then another piece of news came that would greatly increase their anxiety.
“Come on, Zando! “This is a big deal!”
“What happened again?”
“The sacrifices… the sacrifices are on the loose, attacking the armory, taking the weapons, and climbing up!”
“Damn it! As expected, they were targeting me!”
“No… no. It’s not you. “It’s not you they’re after.”
Magra’s momentum rose as if it were about to explode.
“It’s a torch! “We have to stop it!”
* * *
Magra’s intuition was accurate.
As he feared, Seonghwa’s security forces were now facing a great crisis.
“That’s the enemy!”
“It’s coming here!”
“I have to tell Jando… Damn it! “He’s blocking the door!”
Snowfall blocked the passage leading to the torch, accompanied by Karen.
[Defeat the Sulfur Skull Torch Guardian.]
[Experience points are accumulated.]
[Defeat the Sulfur Skull Torch Guardian.]
[Experience points are accumulated.]
Trolls near the torch need at least 2 players to stick to them. It was an elite monster.
Every time those monsters approached Karen, her head fell off in an instant, as if it were being ground by a blender blade.
– Is it true that he goes around cutting down elite mobs by himself?
– Not alone ㅡㅡ There is a summoner next to you
– Summoner (cheering type)
– Karen: My own lawn doll is cheering me on!
As the trolls around Seonghwa were being cleared away, a message occurred to Kangseol.
[Rescue of survivors has been successfully completed.]
[Rewards are set.]
[This adventure is very dangerous.]
[Rewards can be obtained only after all adventures are completed.]
‘Jama Looks like he was successful.’
So far, things were going according to plan.
[The next adventure begins.]
[The fourteenth adventure begins.]
[Adventure 14. Breaking through the flames]
Adventure 14. ‘Breaking through the flames’
The strange fateful survivors who were captured from the ruined city of Novira to Yognatun Volcano. They gave up on escaping early on, but with your help, they were all released from bondage.
But this place is still Yognatun Volcano. There is still a long way to go before we can talk about survival. There is only one option left for you and the survivors. Escape from Yognathun at all costs.
Objective: Eliminate the leader of the Brimstone Skeletons or have at least 70% of the group reach Gulia.
CAUTION This adventure is very dangerous.
Current remaining time 「167:59」
The new adventure goal was exactly what I expected from the beginning.
After understanding the general content of the lecture, Kang Seol focused on the present.
The icon was on the top level of the fire altar. It was a dangerous place where every space except the floor was open.
‘If I fall from here, I won’t be able to survive.’
Falling into boiling sulfur, your bones will probably melt.
Since it was located on the roof of a building, it seemed difficult to pass through the trolls blocking the path, but in reality, it was not.
‘Did Jando take the soldiers to protect himself? This time, the Chief of the Sulfur Skull is disheveled.’
In other words, the road leading to the torch was no different from a quiet country road where cars were occasionally encountered.
It took no more than 10 minutes for the snowfall to slaughter the trolls and reach the top of the temple where the sacred fire was located.
There is still quite a bit of time left until the central axis is restored.
“Protect the torch!”
“joy! How dare you set foot in a sacred place!”
The talking and walking experience tried to stop Karen, but they were all cut down like millet cracks, separating the top and bottom.
[Defeat the Sulfur Skull Flame Guardian.]
[Experience points are accumulated.]
All of the dead trolls died with their eyes wide open, as if they could not believe that they had never faced a worthy opponent.
“Um… I have to get there soon.”
“Are you looking for me?”
“You’re not surprised.”
Before I knew it, Mael had come up behind Snow Seol.
“Kahaha! “I cringed when I saw it.”
“How did you get up so quickly?”
“With a little magic and a little use of the terrain, it is easy to outrun the stampeding soldiers. I’m just worried. The soldiers who went down to capture me will be targeting the hostages…”
“With Jamaard, they won’t be defeated easily.”
“Then we will proceed with the ceremony immediately.”
As they approached the torch, a choice occurred to Kang Seol.
[This is the sacred site of the Sulfur Skull. What would you like to do?]
1. Destroy the brazier containing the flame.
2. [Required: Avenger] Covered in flames.
3. [Required: Fire Bag] Move the flame into the bag.
4. [Required: Shaman] This is a place to offer sacrifices to the primordial god, the sulfur monkey Purga. An offering is made to Purga through magical procedures.
5. [Required: Troll language] Read the writing on the altar.
Mael put his hands together and began to mutter.
After muttering for a while, he handed the dagger placed near the torch to Kang Seol.
“Spend your blood on the flame.”
the brief tingling sensation passes.
Snowfall’s blood fell into the brazier.
– The world’s first adventure carried by a helper.
– Really, Mael’s value for money is crazy haha. Saving mushrooms makes a snowball roll like this?
– Because he is a snowman, the snowball rolls. Humor, humor! Cough!
– Suddenly a taxi is coming; Are you taking a taxi to your house?
The torch that had evaporated the blood shook once.
Kangseol shouted as Mael instructed.
“Almighty fire! Burning sulfur! Wild Purga sleeping in the volcano, please reveal yourself to the weak being!”
Suddenly, sulfur bubbles rose from the crater of the volcano where the temple was floating.
And before I knew it, it became a whirlpool and arose with a momentary shaking that was as shocking as heaven and earth.
‘Ugh… it’s hot.’
Sulfur turned into a huge fire monkey and approached the front of the furnace.
[We witness a wondrous being.]
[Wisdom increases permanently by 5.]
Keuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu00 us us weary.
Snowfall would have screamed if Mael hadn’t cast a protection spell in advance.
A playful-looking Purga approached Kangseol.
“This is my first time seeing this child. Why did he wake me up from my sweet sleep without any fear?”
If lightning could talk, wouldn’t it be like this?
“Purga! “Accept the offering!”
“Sacrifice? Hahaha! Are you a sacrifice? “Isn’t it all of you?”
The sound was loud as if it were a hammer hitting my head.
Now everyone in Zando and the temple must have noticed that there was a problem with the sacred fire.
“This is the offering.”
Kang Seol took something out of her arms.
[Heart of Atarak]
Appropriate level: None
The heart of Atarak, the last descendant of the ancient spider species Anakindria. Although it has already stopped beating, it still retains the faded ancient blood within it.
However, the use of this treasure is very limited.
Special Abilities: Unknown.
A treasure I got from a previous adventure, but didn’t have a good way to use it yet, so I hoarded it.
It was the heart of Atarak, where the blood of an ancient species flowed.
And Purga, who was observing it while scratching her chin, leaned back and laughed maniacally.
“Hahahaha! It’s pretty good! It’s pretty good! Something like this would be enough to wake me up. “Then I won’t decline.”
A huge fire took away the heart that Snowfall was holding.
And then a choice came to mind.
[The wild god Purga has appeared. What would you do?]
3. Ask questions about ancient knowledge.
4. [Required: Summoning skill] Ask about ways to improve the level of summoning skill.
5. [Required: Spiritual Art] Request news from the Spirit Throne.
After confirming the option of accepting payment, Kangseol shouted.
“I want something in return for the sacrifice!”
“Hmm… this blood… it’s great. “Okay, what do you want?”
[Purga asks if there is anything you want. I think you need to choose your answer carefully.]
1. Immense wealth.
2. The Sulfur Soldiers of Purga
3. A destructive force.
4. Movement of fire and lightning.
This choice was very unique.
There were so many different types, there were over 30 to choose from. While skimming down through the snow, Snowfall found what she was looking for.
Kang Seol said with a smile showing his teeth.
“shadow! “It’s an ugly shadow!”
“Your desires will be engraved in flames.”
As Purga pointed his finger at the snowfall, tattoos began to appear on his face.
It felt like my face was melting.
However, Kang Seol held on to not lose his mind and realized that the pain was only temporary.
Soon the pain subsided to the point where I felt refreshed.
[You receive the grace of an ugly shadow.]
[The maximum shadow space increases by 1200.]
[The increase in shadow space increases.]
[You can now summon 3 shadow summons at the same time.]
[The special achievement ‘Bless of Fire’ Achieved.]
[Obtain the special title “Burning One.”]
‘It is tremendous power!’
Shadow space Shadow space increases up to the number of shadow summons that can be summoned simultaneously.
All abilities related to shadows have increased significantly.
This was an incredible increase in ability.
However, this means that Kangseol happened to have an important treasure and that the altar was prepared in advance. It was a miracle created by perfect timing.
Even if Kang Seol was asked to do it again, he couldn’t do it, and it was only possible because he was able to utilize the knowledge he had.
This once again reminded me that each adventure is important.
Thanks to this grace, the situation where powerful summons could not be used due to lack of snowfall shadow space changed greatly. Now you will be able to have all your summons.
Purga stretched out as if satisfied and returned to the brimstone.
“…is it over?”
Snowfall felt like everything she had just experienced was like a dream.
To witness a primordial god and experience even a small part of its power.
That was then.
“That’s pretty cool. My children are dead, right?”
It was Magra who appeared at the top leading more than 10 trolls.
They ignored the sacrifices being released and rushed straight here.
However, Magra, who realized that something had already happened, glared at Kang Seol’s back.
Snowfall turned around and took off the hood of her robe.
He had a tattoo of a flame monkey running from his neck to his face.
“It’s unlucky to be Magra. Why…”
“Do humans know me? Why are you aiming for the sulfur flame?”
“Let’s talk straight away. “Because you dragged my friend with me.”
“I see, it’s a sacrifice. But your luck ends here. Because you had to face me. Yes, this volcano will be your last.”
“luck? That’s right, I’m always unlucky. But…”
An enormous energy emanated from the shadow of the snowfall.
The blue knight made of shadows has awakened.
Karen saw it and shouted.
[Twin Knight Karuna’s succession has been completed.]
[All twin knights have been summoned.] [The twin knight
‘s connected soul is activated.] [The current stats of both summons are doubled.] [The
twin knight ‘s current abilities are doubled.]
Balance is activated.]
[The abilities of the two summons are added together and divided depending on the time.]
A feast of tremendous messages.
Kangseol ignored the endless messages and spoke to Magra.
“That’s why I tend to prepare a little harder.”
Karuna said as he looked at Magra, leaving behind the snowfall.
“It was such a long sleep.”
The once minute crack had now widened to the point where it could not be blocked.
