Episode 194: A three-
the day before the third game begins.
I locked the door and was lost in thought.
I was thinking about this item that had been lying around for a long time.
< Epigrapha of Heaven and Earth >
[Epigrapha] Papers and commentary on pure mechanics analyzed by scholars of different races. When absorbed, the magic level can be randomly increased.
This item obtained from Gerard Gunther’s mansion has been dormant until now.
Just like the ‘Yin-Yang Liquor’ that was secured from Commander Palamir’s secret warehouse… it
was clearly a buff item, but its effect was random.
If you use it with that thought in mind, there is a chance that your magic level will drop.
‘And the higher the level of the original magic skill, the greater the chance of it falling.’
The ‘spirit magic’ I had was not just an ordinary skill.
The Mana Heart that Emperor Bareshan had made useless by casting a gold scepter on it.
It was a valuable skill that became a new source of magical power for my heart, which had been incapacitated due to its unique characteristic of being immune to magic.
If my grade dropped, it would be very difficult.
So I had to make my decision as carefully as possible.
‘So you can combine two buff items to make one, right?’
I thought it would be better to synthesize buff items so that I could stably reach S rank.
But things have changed a little.
‘…the inscriptions of yin and yang and the epitaphs of heaven and earth.’
To me, these were just simple game items.
It was a consumable item that disappeared once used.
‘What kind of item is it for Gilroshan and other wizards?’
It was a change of thinking.
I tried to understand the items not as a player of a game called < Sin.Verse >, but as a wizard living in this world.
Fortunately, I was able to receive quite a bit of magical knowledge from Gilroshan’s magic teacher, Tyrvaen.
And above all….
[Synchronization between ‘player’ and ‘character’ is currently in progress.]
[10.5% completed so far.]
The knowledge that Third Prince Gilroshan secretly learned and researched is also slowly taking root in his mind. was going
Although it was still only 10%, we were able to find out quite a lot even with that amount.
As a result.
‘…This is what it was about.’
I succeeded in achieving great results that surprised me.
Unfortunately, he could not decipher even half of the yin-yang liquor taken from the corps commander’s secret warehouse.
However, the inscription on heaven and earth was different.
…All things heaven and earth are the creations of the ‘Great One’ who existed from the vast darkness of the beginning.
The land was created by using his own skull as a foundation and gathering dust and mysterious forces that were floating around in the infinite space of the universe.
It could be said that all beings on this earth owe a permanent debt to that ‘Great One’…
‘Is this what happens?’
A perfect interpretation was achieved.
I too was amazed.
The ancient language that made up the inscriptions of heaven and earth was completely different from the languages currently used on the continent.
Therefore, it was almost like a cipher text, and even with all my knowledge, I couldn’t read even half of it.
In other words, the inscriptions of heaven and earth were initially not much different from the inscriptions of yin and yang.
‘…there was an annotation written by Gérard on the inscription on Heaven and Earth.’
As I said, the Epitaph of Heaven and Earth was an item taken from Gérard Gunther’s mansion.
And the great sword master wrote down in detail the information he had discovered in each corner of the ancient book.
‘As if he knew that someone would follow in his footsteps and take on the task of deciphering this ancient book…’
Thanks to this, I was able to completely interpret the inscriptions of heaven and earth.
The moment when I made the secret book left by an unknown ancient sage my own.
A dazzling flash of light poured out.
And even system messages.
[Due to an unknown external action, you will be given the opportunity to modify the code that makes up the magic series’ comprehensive technology.] [Do you
want to apply it right away?]
‘…Huh? What does this mean?’
Even though I was already stuck in < The World Forsaken by God >, I couldn’t help but be surprised by the message.
Unknown external action?
‘An opportunity to modify the code that makes up magic technology?’
It was a shocking story.
Because it sounded as if another force was at work outside of the game system.
‘So you’re saying there’s something else outside of this system?’
…The Great One!
An ancient god who has existed since the beginning.
Is he the master of all these systems?
So what brought me here?
‘It could be so.’
It wasn’t certain, but it was a possibility that could be assumed.
So for what?
Why did you draw me in?
Unfortunately, no clear conclusion was reached in that regard.
All there was was a vague hint that it was to solve my ‘fate’.
After thinking about it for a while, I shook my head and tried to shake off my thoughts.
‘Let’s think about this slowly.’
There was something else that was important now.
By completely interpreting this ‘Epigraph of Heaven and Earth’, an opportunity to modify the contents of magic skills was created.
And there was an opponent I wasn’t sure I could beat even if I gave it my all.
What if that god really resides in Warchief Mordrin?
Just joining hands with Eikir was not enough.
‘You have to grow up.’
It also had to reach a very high point in one go.
So I felt like this wasn’t enough right now.
‘…isn’t there a way to go one step further from here?’
I think there’s something more.
Right at that moment.
There was an idea that crossed my mind.
It was such a groundbreaking idea that even I was perplexed.
The idea was to take advantage of the ‘loophole’ that the system just showed.
‘In a way, it’s like copying an item, but will this actually work?’
For a moment, the strong doubts as a gamer and the strange confidence as a magician coexisted.
“…You’ll find out when you try.”
I immediately went into action.
First, I transferred the results of deciphering the inscriptions of Heaven and Earth to another piece of paper and wrote them down.
“…Afterwards, use the ‘Epigraph of Heaven and Earth’ for ‘spirit magic.’”
The intention was to use the ancient magic book as a consumable item.
And then a system message appeared before my eyes.
[Use ‘Inscription of Heaven and Earth’.]
[The grade of the comprehensive skill ‘Young Magic’ changes.]
The probability is about 70%.
…Now what will happen?
“It’s a luck and skill game!”
For the first time in a very long time, that slogan did not betray me.
[The level of the comprehensive skill ‘Young Magic’ has risen!]
It couldn’t stop here.
I looked again at the copy of ‘The Epitaph of Heaven and Earth’ that I had transcribed earlier.
Unfortunately, the source of magic contained in the original document was completely consumed.
…All things heaven and earth are the creations of the ‘Great One’ who existed from the vast darkness of the beginning….
The enlightenment left behind by the ancient sage was still there.
‘Because knowledge is not a consumable item.’
Rather, it was like a living thing that grew with more and more mysterious content as each generation passed.
And my predictions were spectacularly correct.
[Due to an unknown external action, you will be given the opportunity to modify the code that makes up the comprehensive technology of the magic series.] [Do you
want to apply it right away?]
The message from before appears once again, letting you know that there are still opportunities to modify the code.
‘This is an opportunity to modify the code that makes up the magic.’
What does this mean?
‘You’ll understand when you try.’
I accepted the job right away.
My mouth widened at the parade of magic commands unfolding before my eyes.
‘oh my god. Was it something like this?’
…opportunity to modify the code.
It was like an opportunity to create a new version of existing magic.
* * *
‘But there was too little time.’
I was feeling regretful as I looked at Eikir, who was panting.
If I had more time, I would have fixed the magic circuit more efficiently.
If that were the case, Eikir probably wouldn’t have been my point of ten seconds.
‘Beast warriors who haven’t even crossed the 8-star barrier yet…’
Since their magic resistance is weak, they could have been blown away in an instant using their overwhelming magical output.
It was quite disappointing in many ways.
But it wasn’t disappointing.
‘On the contrary, there are some things I’m looking forward to.’
The anticipation I feel.
It originated from unfamiliar messages that appeared again after modifying the code.
[A new evaluation is being conducted on ‘spirit magic’ whose code has been modified by the player.] [The
part modified by the player is 27.5% of the existing skill.]
[If the power of the skill is evaluated to have improved compared to the previous one, the skill’s As the creator, you can rename the technology.]
[You can receive the ‘Creator’ bonus to the power of the technology.]
‘They say imitation is the mother of creation.’
This means that I will be recognized as having created a new magic using spiritual magic as a basis.
This was the result of my modification of the spiritual magic code.
‘I removed as much of the useless parts of spiritual magic as possible and focused only on stabilizing the magic generator and adjusting the efficiency of transmission…’
What kind of judgment will you receive?
And what name should you give yourself if you are recognized as a creator?
That’s when I was thinking about that.
Eikir grabbed his spear pole tightly.
“I think it would be better to fight thinking of you as an excellent warrior rather than seeing you as a northern wizard.”
I burst out laughing at the words he mumbled while taking a deep breath.
“I should have done that a long time ago.”
This fight was both a demonstration of new magic and a kind of warm-up for the real fight with Kali.
“So let’s do our best.”
“It’s common for both of us, Seid.”
The clash began again.
Eikir rushed at me, showing off his massive leg muscles as if they were about to explode at any moment.
A slanted waist and lowered shoulders.
At the same time, both elbows are pulled back to find the sharpest angle.
Part of the hood attached to the bubble cloak was torn off by a grate that appeared from an invisible place.
‘Ekra’s spearmanship has become faster.’
According to the classification of swordsmanship, it was a type of swordsmanship, equivalent to quick swordsmanship.
He had the nickname of a spear skill that even a shadow could not match.
‘Does this guy really think he can get faster here?’
The moment I thought that.
The creative dance began.
As soon as Eikir realized that I was a formidable opponent, he increased his speed as if he had switched gears.
When I tried to attack it to the outside, it swung the spear sharply and bounced it back, blocking the path of attack.
It kicked the ground with all its might and whipped around so fast that it looked like it had dozens of spear blades.
Using the enhanced magical power, the body was able to dodge without difficulty.
But the cloak of foam continued to be torn apart.
I didn’t like that, so I was slowing down my attack a little…
“Damn it! “Think about what will happen later! Schaffen Seid!”
As if he didn’t like something, Eikir let out a roar and followed along like a leech.
I clenched my molars.
“Okay, if that’s your wish.”
…I will do that.
[The unidentified technology ‘???’ operates to its limit.]
[Evaluation is in progress.]
[Please wait a moment….]
