NPC Became the 3rd Prince
I was so nervous that the sound of me swallowing dry saliva sounded like thunder.
I’ve experienced card shuffling thousands of times while playing < Sin.Verse >, but I’ve never been as nervous as I am now.
What I hoped for was very small and small(?).
‘Ordinarily! Class A tank!’
Let’s just pop one!
Senior Knight, Hidden Fighter, High-ranking Monk, Elite Shield Soldier… All
you need to do is pop up something like this.
‘There’s a lot of potential!’
So get out! Get out!
This was not a burning happiness circuit, but rather a hope that had some basis.
There are 1024 Destiny cards in this game, but one of those three was clearly a close combat card.
‘And the average grade for the three chapters is B.’
I was sure.
Because I knew that there was an implicit rule unique to the first card shuffle.
Only one card was bound to appear among the close combat cards that guaranteed easy play.
Not many people knew, but this was the unspoken rule of the first shuffle.
‘Even the Godsoft guys have at least a conscience to consider beginners.’
The production team of < The World Forsaken by God > was not stupid, so they made the first step like this.
…That doesn’t change the fact that they are randomly thrown at you from the first job.
The star’s rotation was slowly stopping.
And then I saw three cards that were particularly flashy.
I opened my eyes wide.
Those were the destiny cards that would decide my fate.
‘please! Class A tank!’
Of course, it wouldn’t be a bad thing if only a usable B grade came out.
‘Still, I’d be grateful if an S-class came out while it was still coming out!’
Now, what will come out?
What kind of cards will this world give me, who suddenly becomes an NPC who is not even the main character?
The moment when the three fate cards that came down from the night sky were turned over one after another.
I couldn’t believe my eyes.
[F-class fate ‘slave gladiator’ has appeared!]
[D-class fate ‘third-rate theater actor’ has appeared!]
Crazy f*cking game!
“…F and D appear?”
Is this true?
As I already mentioned, the average grade of the fate cards that appeared in the first card draw was B grade.
But now F and D have suddenly appeared.
‘Then what’s next?’
That was the moment when I was at a loss for words in a situation I could barely understand.
A deep blue light burst out.
[EX-class destiny ‘Great Mage’ has appeared!]
“It’s crazy! “It turned!”
I tried to throw the mouse, but I couldn’t.
Because I wasn’t looking at the monitor right now.
It was hard to believe it even after seeing it with my own eyes.
‘Has Transcendence appeared?’
Is that also the ‘Great Mage’?
oh my god.
oh my god!
It is known that the probability of an EX-level fate card, the highest level, appearing is less than 0.01%.
But now it has suddenly appeared.
I couldn’t help but feel embarrassed.
‘EX-class fate card archmage.’
It was my first time receiving this card when I started playing.
A thought suddenly occurred to me when I was faced with a situation where I couldn’t come up with words.
‘Is it because I’m an NPC and not a player character?’
Maybe that had an impact.
I have no idea why, but the body that my consciousness resides in now belongs to an NPC called ‘Gilroshan Valt’.
Unlike the characters created by players, this guy had a background and lineage as a character.
Therefore, the magician’s qualities left behind by the Imperial Family of the Magic Empire may have been involved in the adoption of the Destiny Card.
According to the setting of the original work, the people of the Baltic royal family have been outstanding wizards for generations.
Anyway, that’s it.
I swallowed my saliva and looked at the three cards.
Of course, my eyes were instinctively fixed on the EX level card.
It had to be that way.
That brilliant appearance that spreads deep blue light in all directions!
‘The ultimate long-distance dealer!
A card that makes you feel reverence and respect just by looking at it!
‘King of Cards! ‘God of cards!’
Now that I think about it, other EX-level cards will be disappointed if this happens.
In any case, Grand Mage was a highly coveted card.
The countless memories of play in my head were testifying to that.
‘What should I do with this?’
Now I couldn’t make an easy choice.
Even with the transcendent level card, it was difficult to choose.
Because there was a very serious problem.
The assassins’ blades were still touching my neck.
The tingling sensation that I might really die was weighing heavily on my entire body.
My problem was this seriously bloody situation itself.
If I were a player, I could just die once and resurrect in the village…
but now it was different.
If your head is cut off, you die.
Dead NPCs do not respawn.
‘You must live!’
My instincts were screaming like that.
Thanks to this, thoughts and calculations were running like crazy in my head.
To avoid that blade.
And my conclusion is….
-The Grand Mage card must be discarded. If you choose, you die!
I want to scream at the top of my lungs.
‘How can this be?!’
EX-class ‘Grand Mage’ was a card that all players looked forward to.
But that wasn’t the case for me now.
No matter how great a wizard is, a wizard is a wizard.
Because it is an ADC with the least survivability among tank heals!
‘I’m going to turn away because it’s such a waste.’
Any magic requires time to ‘cast’.
Due to the game setting, time was essential to draw magical power from the mana circle surrounding the heart and materialize it externally.
But this fat man was not allowed that time at all.
Unable to avoid the falling blade, the head will simply be separated from the body.
Since I was in this guy’s body, I couldn’t avoid it either.
For that reason, the conclusion was that the Grand Mage card could not be selected.
The conclusion I came to myself brings tears to my eyes.
‘My transcendence card!’
But I had to grit my teeth and look away.
In fact, the answer was decided from the beginning.
As if he was mocking me….
The F-class tanker was sparkling ironically.
Now I had to reject the transcendent level card and choose that waste level card.
That’s the only way to survive here.
There was no other way than using that skill, which was the only advantage of that card.
It was truly absurd, but I knew it better than anyone else.
[The F-class fate ‘Slave Gladiator’ was chosen.]
[Are you sure?]
…I hope I’m not sure.
But it was certain.
So it feels even more like a gem.
Wow, the day is coming when we throw away transcendence and pick up the slack?
[The F-class fate ‘Slave Gladiator’ is granted to ‘Gilroshan Elo de Balt’!]
The light of the other two cards is fading away.
I almost felt like crying.
Goodbye Grand Mage…
Let’s meet again…
[You have obtained 3 exclusive skills for ‘Slave Gladiator’.]
[Good luck to you.]
‘You’ve already had luck!’
I got the best luck ever, but I couldn’t eat it!
I don’t know if it was other games, but this was < New Verse > and I knew most of this world.
It was pathetic.
‘I didn’t study as I was told to and just played this game.’
So, ironically, I was able to choose ‘Slave Gladiator’ instead of ‘Grand Mage’.
[Play begins in 5 seconds.]
Of course I know.
‘From ancient times, bitsak is the answer to mangae.’
But now there is no way to delete the character.
Since I’m moving Gilroshan’s body myself…
should I commit suicide myself?
I don’t even want to think about that.
Now, let’s change our minds.
‘Even though I’m not the main character.’
Although he is a b*stard who is said to be the disgrace of the imperial family.
Since I was in this ‘Gilroshan’ body, I had to take advantage of this situation to survive.
In the original, this guy bled to death here, but I would be different.
I can assure you that there will be no such thing as this head falling off.
We will survive.
…But how should I use the skills?
Left click and right click?
Is it left or right?
It was all useless worry.
The moment when the F-class fate card ‘Slave Gladiator’ was completely absorbed into Giloshan’s body.
I naturally knew what to do and how to do it.
And then everything resumed.
The blades struck down immediately as if they had been waiting for some time.
I reflexively stretched out my hand.
It’s hard to explain, but there was something inside me.
All I had to do was push this unfamiliar thing out.
[Survival Skills: A Taste for Bondage]
The slave gladiator’s exclusive skills were simply revealed.
A force that started from my fingertips was causing faint waves throughout my body.
And the next moment.
A knife stuck in me.
The sharp sensation hitting the back of my neck and lower back was cold and heavy.
Two swords pierced my body side by side.
But surprisingly, I didn’t die.
Even though his throat had been cut and his back was stabbed, he held his head upright and frowned.
In fact, not a single drop of blood was flowing.
It might seem like time has been turned back.
I was so fine that the men who retrieved the sword were confused.
My eyes were bloodshot from the pain and I had to suppress the screams that kept coming out.
[Successful in using the skill.]
[Cannot be used for the time being.]
Anyway, I was alive now.
Giloshan’s head was not cut.
It was thanks to the skill of the slave gladiator.
< Taste for Bondage >
[Survival Skill] Slave gladiator’s exclusive skill. If part or all of the body is restrained, a fatal attack can be ignored once. It can be used again 24 hours after use.
‘Ignores damage that leads to death once per day.’
This was the effect of ‘Taste for Bondage’, one of the ‘Slave Gladiator’s’ exclusive skills.
And that was also the reason why I discarded the transcendent card and chose a waste card.
In this situation, where one was tied up and a sword was falling on one’s neck, the survival skills of a slave gladiator were more useful than the attack magic of a great mage.
So, with tears in my eyes, I chose the F-level card instead of the EX-level card.
Just to survive!
I’m such a meta!
But this only happened once a day. This was because the cooldown for this skill was a whopping 24 hours.
Even in the original work, the taste for bondage could not be used until the next day.
So, saving one’s life in this way was something that had to be allowed by luck and time.
‘This is why grade F is grade F.’
Now you need to think about the following.
Gilroshan’s captors were still surrounding me, and my barely surviving body was still tied up.
If they tried to cut me down again, I had no choice but to have my head cut off.
‘I have to move first.’
I had to take the lead before the panicked guys came to their senses.
I quickly opened my mouth.
And I screamed.
“Vamilo Dimarque! “Yes, you guy!”
The guys who were confused by the sudden shouting suddenly stopped moving.
The old man who ordered me to be cut down frowned.
“3rd prince, how did you say my name…?”
The player character with his face hidden was also looking this way as if he was interested.
My heart is pounding like crazy due to tension.
But it was a favorable trend.
I couldn’t back out now.
I went crazy and screamed like a crazy person.
“How dare you not recognize your master who resides in this body!”
As someone who knows the entire story of < Sin.Buse >, I naturally knew the identities of these people.
“grow! “I am your master!”
I was able to make really absurd bullshit sound plausible.
“I am Aeolem!”
The god that these guys were praising earlier.
“God of vengeance! Aeolem! It means that I have descended into this body! “You idiots!”
“Untie me right now! I feel so dirty!”
I decided to impersonate the god they serve.
