“Are you okay, sir?”
“I was in the middle of hunting when they showed up and I was surprised.”
Kals and Tyrvaen returned to me with slightly nervous faces.
A white-haired young man and a cool-looking woman brought them.
Among the two, a young man with a gentle smile caught my eye.
This man was the guardian star I was looking for.
‘…the patron saint of spears and swords.’
But Changgeomseong said something a little strange to me.
“Sir, do you have any questions for us?”
Changgeomseong smiled excitedly at me, but held a long sword in his arms.
There was a subtle wave of magic coming from the sword.
Feeling a strange presence, I furrowed my eyebrows slightly.
‘Hmm, is that sword also an ego sword like Marquis Royt’s Roar Sword?’
So you said us?
Well, it could have been that way.
He is an ancient patron saint of swords and spears.
‘You probably aren’t using a lower level magic sword than the Roar Sword.’
I just thought about that and started talking about my business.
“I don’t know if you know, but I would like to know how to overcome the side effects of the sword technique called ‘Frontier Beating Sword Art.’ So where should I start…”
I scratched my chin for a moment.
In order to explain it easily, it seemed necessary to first explain the basic principles of Frontier Swordsmanship.
Of course, Carls knew more about Frontier than I did, so I called him over and tried to explain it to him.
But then Changgeomseong briefly raised his hand to stop me.
“Did you just say it was a side effect of swordsmanship?”
“yes. “It’s a side effect.”
“All right. “Then please wait a moment.”
At the same time, Changgeomseong tapped the hilt of the sword he was holding.
At that moment, a change occurred that I had never expected.
It wasn’t an ego sword or anything.
The long sword that Changgeomseong had been carrying all along rose into the air.
It pulled itself out of its sheath and began to emit a brilliant light.
The sword was drawn.
But what appeared was not a blade.
It was a person who suddenly jumped out into this world, as if stretching.
Is this why you said ‘we’?
It was a white-haired woman with a similar look to Changgeomseong.
Standing side by side, they looked so similar that they looked like twins.
This time she smiled.
“Keep talking, representative.”
At those words, I had no choice but to look back at Changgeomseong.
I think I need to explain what kind of situation this is.
The man seemed to have read the meaning in his eyes and laughed.
“We are both Changgeomseong. “They move around the ‘universe’ depending on their needs and roles.”
“…You’re moving around space?”
“yes. But I can’t go into detail about that. “There are so many restrictions in this world.”
At those words, I turned my head and looked back at the brightness.
The appearance of a man playing with Piyong in an incongruous manner.
Now that I think about it, the first thing I talked about about my fate and dimensional movement was when I met the Everlast guardian.
I don’t know what it is, but I’m sure they also have a secret about dimensional movement.
While I was thinking that, the woman said.
“Instead, to briefly explain our roles, Lee is the blade and I am the hilt.”
“how is it? “If you think about it that way, it makes sense, right?”
Blade and hilt.
The expression was a perfect metaphor and accurate division of roles.
‘Because all swords and spears have separate blades and handles.’
For that reason, it seemed that the woman, who played the role of the hilt of the sword, was responsible for the side effects of swordsmanship.
“Well then, what should I call you? Should I say ‘Yeogeomseong’?”
Together with Kals, I began to explain to the female swordsman.
First, I explained something called Frontier Fighting Swordsmanship and told him about the changes that occurred after learning it.
Then Yeo Geomsung slowly nodded.
“Hmm, I see. “Yes, I know what you mean.”
“Then do you know a solution to this problem?”
But Yeo Geom-seong did not answer my question right away.
“And it’s fun. It’s called ‘Frontier Fighting Swordsmanship’! “It’s a matter of congratulations that the child has received such a wonderful name.”
Another story came up that I couldn’t understand.
I wondered if they didn’t explain this because
they said there were limitations… “Even if it is one being, it may have a different name in another universe. So their fate may also be completely different.”
Unexpectedly, Yeo Geomsung explained it briefly.
“Name and destiny…”
Yeogeomseong’s story was quite vague, but I understood it.
In other words, in the world I know, this swordsmanship is now called ‘Frontier Fighting Swordsmanship’.
‘It could be called a completely different name in another universe.’
And it meant that the fate of the swordsmanship used here by the proper imperial knights could also be different.
‘…It’s not just swordsmanship, but people can do that too.’
I suddenly feel chills.
I felt like I had discovered a secret I wasn’t supposed to know.
But the two Changgeomseongs smiled softly at me.
“Haha, don’t be nervous.”
“It’s just the providence of the world.”
And then Yeogeomseong opened her mouth.
“Now, from now on, please listen carefully to what I say. “Maybe this will be helpful to both of you.”
An unusual story began.
“Every kendo (劍道) is a path. Just as each person’s journey is different, the sword’s journey is different.”
“The journey of the sword….”
“But the end is all the same. “It’s the same with any swordsmanship.”
The expression on Carl’s face as he nodded while listening to Changgeomseong’s story was unusual.
“So, all problems are just road problems. In other words, if you don’t lose sight of your destination, it’s just a problem that will pass one day.”
“So there’s no need to go back just because you encounter a problem, right? Of course, if it’s a faster route, you can consider it.”
Yeogeomseong paused for a moment and smiled.
“Actually, most people don’t. “It’s just a waste of time.”
‘Even if Frontier’s swordsmanship gives me problems with anger management disorder, I don’t need to give up my swordsmanship?’
In other words, there was definitely a way.
“Hey Carls. See, am I right? Why are you giving up on Frontier?”
“Lowering! The Goddess of Swords is speaking now! “Be quiet!”
Where has my loyalist gone?
Right now, Carls was completely fascinated by the story of Changgeomseong, and sparks were shining in his eyes.
When I glanced back, I saw that Tyrvaen was also listening to the story with a serious expression.
‘It’s a story about swordsmanship, but does that mean there’s something to be said for magic as well?’
Actually, there was something about the story of the female swordsman that clearly touched me even when I heard it, even though I don’t know much about swordsmanship yet.
This is a very core and principled story.
‘This is a problem of the road.’
So, if you don’t forget your destination, it will pass and be resolved someday.
I first remembered that and then opened my mouth again.
“So what should we do if a problem arises on that road? “Now I need that solution.”
“In that case, more than anything, we need to examine the road carefully.”
“…Look at the road?”
“Yes, that’s right. I need to know what’s holding me back right now. Is it stone-rooted or grassroots? “More than anything else, wouldn’t you like to know for sure that you can shake it off?”
It was as if I understood.
The story Yeogeomseong was telling me right now did not offer a direct solution to my current problem.
More fundamental than that….
‘way of thinking.’
Now, Yeogeomseong was teaching him the trick.
‘okay. If you realize this mindset, you will be able to easily solve any other problems that arise.’
We all knew exactly that, so no one complained.
They just kept their mouths shut and were lost in their own thoughts.
‘What’s holding me back now?’
Of course it was ‘anger’.
After learning Frontier, a sword fighting technique, his anger suddenly surged.
If so, next.
‘Why is this thing spreading like this?’
Of course, it’s not that I haven’t thought about it.
Carls already told me that this happens because the flow of swordsmanship and the flow of the body are not very compatible.
It is said that it is a phenomenon where people collide because their directions are different.
So, the conclusion is that one of me and Frontier have to change direction somehow…
‘What do you want me to change and how?’
This was out of nowhere.
To be honest, the more I thought about it, the more I felt like I didn’t know what to do.
As I sighed in frustration, Yeo Geomsung smiled again.
“I’ll give you a hint. “Think of the other sword skills the deputy possesses.”
“My other sword techniques?”
…Could it be manatee swordsmanship?
I never told Changgeomseong that I had learned the manatee sword technique.
However, Yeo Geomsung seemed to already know about things I didn’t say.
“Are there any problems with that swordsmanship?”
“If the problem is just slow growth, that’s not a problem.”
“It’s not a question of the road, but a question of steps.”
I think I just got hit with the facts.
“Why is there no problem?”
“Is it because your achievements are low?”
“Hehe no. That’s not why it’s so cute. It’s just because the swordsmanship and you don’t go against each other.”
…Manatee and I do not go against each other?
Now that I think about it, something suddenly occurred to me.
‘Yes, that’s right. ‘There was that, right?’
The comprehensive technique ‘Haewoo Sword Technique’ includes a total of 36 detailed techniques.
Among these, the 36th and last skill was an auxiliary skill called ‘Pure Qi Breathing’.
< Surprising Technique >
[Auxiliary Skill] A sub-skill of the comprehensive skill ‘Manatee Sword Technique’. It is a breathing method that harmonizes the energy of the world and the energy of the practitioner.
Special: The current achievement level increases magic recovery by 1%.
‘It’s a passive skill that circulates magical energy inside and outside the body and builds up pure magical energy.’
I, who had had my mana heart sealed by the emperor, was able to use magical power, albeit imperfectly.
This could actually be seen as an effect of pure breathing technique.
If it weren’t for this Pure Energy Breathing technique, which harmonizes the outside world with my internal magic, I wouldn’t have been able to accumulate even a single piece of mana in the lower level.
‘Maybe I couldn’t use the inventory spell.’
But I didn’t think this was very important.
This is because it was thought that the growth of manatee sword techniques had been too slow and that pure energy suction techniques were not working properly.
But surprisingly, there was a hint here.
…Yeah, that was it.
“So you’re saying that frontier swordsmanship also requires breathing techniques? Is that correct?”
I couldn’t wait to check what I realized.
The swordsmen only smiled and did not specifically answer my question.
This also seemed to fall under some kind of taboo.
So I had to keep thinking on my own.
‘The problem is that there is no breathing technique in frontier swordsmanship.’
…So does that mean I have to create my own breathing method?
‘I have to create a skill?’
It’s not that there is absolutely no content about ‘skill creation’ in the original game.
However, the freedom to create skills was very limited.
‘It takes too much time and effort to create the desired effect.’
First of all, ‘skill creation’ was a task that I couldn’t even think of because the activation conditions were too strict.
So when I’m worried.
“…The same goes for breathing on the lower frontier. “Press ahead and take center stage.”
Carls was muttering next to me.
“Huh? Didn’t you break the center?”
“There is a change as of today.”
When I looked back at him, I saw that blue light shining in his eyes again.
I knew what the phenomenon was.
‘Eyes of enlightenment!’
New messages suddenly appeared.
[‘Carls Silion’ has gained a special enlightenment, ‘Passage Hyeonjeong (破邪顯正)’.] [
‘Carls Silion’ creates a new skill, ‘Frontier Stream’!]
Cals began creating skills on my behalf.
I had no choice but to clench my fists.
‘Fighting, our Master Carls!’
