Fight and Wait
After hatching was completed, Junipero carefully picked up the hatchling.
The scales of a young dragon sparkle brightly in gold.
The newborn baby dragon was so small and cute.
“It’s so small and cute…”
Even those who had met the young Terkiod had their mouths wide open.
As expected, Terkiod was a red dragon and a large hatchling from birth.
The just-born ‘Makryongi’ was a yellow dragon species specialized in defense and detection abilities.
Therefore, it was relatively small in size and had a slightly slender appearance.
“Now come to your sister.”
Vinokharas, holding his crying youngest brother, smiled brightly at Hael.
“Honestly, I don’t know about Dongryong, but I have a feeling this guy will have a feminine body like me.”
“hmm? “Isn’t that just Vinoka’s wish?”
“No! This is a sisterly instinct. Hael is my sister too, right? “We have something in common, right?”
“I don’t think there is anything at all…”
“Tch. “A mean elf.”
Meanwhile, Junipero was looking for Gilroshan with a proud look on his face.
Of course, it was to convey the news that the last hatchling had been born.
I caught a glimpse of him among the knights clearing up the camp.
He was sitting under a tree trunk, looking like he was deep in thought.
Junipero, who was approaching Gilroshan, had no choice but to slow down his steps.
It was because the prince’s eyes looked slightly wet.
The unicorn was confused.
‘what? Are you really crying?’
Could that person do that?
Junipero scratched his head as the concepts in his mind collided.
Because Gilroshan was not a person who could cry.
He was an enigmatic figure.
The iron man who led the group with his strangely firm decisions and actions was a being that was impossible to understand.
But are you shedding tears in the morning?
Incomprehensibility does not shed tears.
And the next moment.
“…What? “What about that sinister look?”
Before I knew it, Gilroshan had returned with a calm expression.
The look in his eyes when he looked at Junipero was no different from usual.
‘Was there morning dew on your face just now?’
The unicorn scratched the bridge of his nose, feeling uncertain.
“What are you talking about, man? “I think I’m going to roast it with horse meat.”
Gilroshan eventually got up and began to approach in stride.
Before I knew it, the prince had grown in size as his body gained muscle, and he was quite threatening.
“Oh that! “What was it?”
Junipero came to his senses and hurriedly shouted.
“yes! “Master’s last dragon has been born!”
Then the corner of Giloshan’s mouth twitched.
* * *
I was feeling a strange feeling watching the twitching dragon.
“What is your name?”
“Ah, Vinokharas is calling me ‘Makryongi.’ “It means the youngest dragon.”
Anyway, he was a guy who focused on himself in everything he did.
Finally, the third dragon was born.
‘It was like that too.’
I accepted ‘Makryongi’ and smiled quietly.
The hatching process resumed as it was freed from Kali’s sphere of influence.
As a result, the dragon eggs hatched and, as I expected, a gold dragon hatchling was born.
But the hatchling was smaller than I expected.
That was honestly a shame.
Junipero, the nurse, will provide the highest quality food, so it will compensate to some extent, but…
‘As expected, it will inevitably be smaller than Vinocaras or Terchiod.’
Of course, the gold dragon itself is a dragon species that is born small and then gradually grows larger, but Makryongi was below average.
There was a corner to point out.
‘It’s probably because hatching was delayed.’
Terchiod, a red dragon, came out of its egg while I was dealing with ichthyosaurs.
As befits the impatient red dragon species, it seemed to have started hatching after being stimulated by the magical power of the water contained in the ichthyosaur species.
But this guy was the opposite.
Makryong endured it again and again, curled up as if he would never be born again unless the outside world became safe.
Then, when God’s presence disappeared, hatching began and was finally born.
‘But it took too long.’
Because of this, too much energy was consumed inside Yongran.
In the end, there was no choice but to break away from it in a relatively small form.
…Yes, that’s right.
“I’m sorry, master.”
Junipero began to apologize, probably because he thought I was disappointed because he was watching Makryong in silence.
“I think the hatchling was born small because I wasn’t good enough. “I’m sorry for not living up to your expectations…”
But I chuckled.
“It’s not like that.”
“I just thought of something else. “From now on, you can raise this guy.”
Then the feeling of relief returned to the unicorn’s face.
“I will work hard. “I will raise it to be a dragon that will not be defeated by Manuel’s Dongryong!”
“Yes, don’t lose to Dongryong… or Terkiod.”
…These kids all call me Dongryong, so they start calling me Dongryong too.
Anyway, Junipero went back with Makryongi.
The knights also made a lot of noise and welcomed the newly born dragon.
And soon we were ready to move again.
“Hey prince! “Let’s go!”
Gilad Gordin’s shout.
“Uncle, please play with Captain Carmodo and Sir Iesta instead of me today.”
“Yes? Why all of a sudden?”
“I have a lot to think about today.”
When I gestured toward the back, Captain Gordin narrowed his eyes and surprisingly disappeared without a word.
It seemed like he noticed that my perception was unusual.
I led the knights and started walking through the forest again.
Behind me, the loud voices of my companions were tickling my ears.
But I, who had a complicated mind, walked in silence.
A record I saw at dawn.
In the video sent by Scroll, I saw a face I had never expected.
‘Card cheater type.’
In the original game, he was a tutorial NPC who provided information about the functions of destiny cards.
Thanks to this, it was also an NPC with a strange setting that existed no matter which city I went to.
‘So I knew there was something unusual, but…’
He really wasn’t an ordinary being.
A record of the world I have glimpsed.
In the video shown by the Destiny Codex, Chero introduced himself with a completely different name.
‘…Gzermiu, the Demon God of Fate.’
It was a name that even I had never heard of.
It wasn’t just the name.
First of all, I was embarrassed that there was a god who governed ‘fate’.
Among the gods, there was only one demon god who ruled the demon world, but it was surprising that it was called a completely different name.
‘Then what is Harmun, the demon god of the current era…?’
Does that mean that the demon god who presides over oblivion appeared after Gchermiu?
I don’t know.
In any case, what was more important was the content of the video itself.
The record contained a conversation between two beings.
One of them was, of course, Masin Gzermiu, and the other was…
‘…the Great One’.
The record contained the story of two giant gods.
I watched the video again and again as I walked through the forest.
It had to be that way.
Because that record contained the point in time when the fate of this world was decided.
I don’t know where it is.
A space where a hazy fog flows.
Gcermiu was standing in the middle.
“Long time no see. “Great one.”
He greeted the sky.
There was no answer back.
But nevertheless he spoke again.
“Yes, it is me. Gzermiu, the demon of fate. You lost your mouth, and now you seem to have lost your eyes as well…”
‘That being’ didn’t even know who the visitor was.
A being that has lost its mouth and eyes.
‘The Great One.’
But the entire space was expressing his will.
Also, Gzermiu seemed to be able to read the meaning.
The demon god sighed into the air and quietly opened his mouth.
“Yes, I knew everything. Honestly, I can’t believe it, but I heard your story from Eurovis. You are stronger and greater than anyone else. But I cannot agree.”
“no. Let me be clear: I am against it. “That’s a stupid idea.”
Surprisingly, Gzermiu was angry at the Great Attacker.
Although he didn’t yell, there was a hint of anger in his voice.
“Why on earth should you do that? Why must you make such a great sacrifice?”
The sacrifice of a ‘great man’.
Since the Great Person had no voice at this time, he did not provide any definite information.
So I couldn’t know for sure.
What on earth did he sacrifice?
“You are going to organize the hierarchy and order of the dimensions of the universe? I don’t understand. Why do you want to get involved in such a complicated matter? You don’t have to. This is a world that is going to die anyway. “This place is made wrong!”
‘A dying world or a place made wrong.’
What does this mean?
‘This world is dying…?’
why? Are you this fine?
“Think about it. Celestial guys have attacked you. “I can’t even remember how many times it happened.”
The demon’s voice trembled slightly.
“I changed their fate every time. “Not as hunting dogs who attacked their masters, but as ambitious men who attempted the impossible to surpass themselves.”
This was something I knew too.
The fact that Kali and other heavenly gods attacked the ‘Great One’.
But this was the first time I heard that it happened multiple times.
“If it meant changing the fate of this world and starting over, it would be great. You can do it as many times as you want. “That’s better.”
“no! I can do it! “As many times as you want!”
the Demon God shouted as if he was struggling.
“Please stop your sacrifice! Please order that the fate of heavenly punishment be meted out to those odious b*stards. If it’s an order like that, I’ll follow it even if my body breaks…! please!”
But the next moment.
The great man gave a long answer.
After hearing that, Germius lowered his head in discouragement.
“You are still stubborn. but. “Because you are stronger and greater than anyone else…”
It was a bitter smile.
Although Gzermiu vehemently opposed the will of the Great Assassin, it seemed that his will could not be broken in the end.
The fog waved and conveyed its meaning once again.
“All right. Then, we will prepare for a new world once again.”
The demon god who controls fate had no choice but to nod in the end.
“But this time you will have a lot to do with Eurovis. To be honest, it’s not very pleasant to be involved with a cocky dragon.”
…Dragon Lord Eurobis.
He was also the person who created the evil dragon’s nest.
‘So does that mean the Dragon Lord is also involved in the will and plans of the Great One?’
At that time, while watching the records, I was lost in thought.
Gcermiu smiled slightly.
“But don’t think everything will be fine. “The downgrading of the world is inevitable from the moment you leave.”
And the fog slowly began to disperse.
The will of the ‘great one’ disappears.
A man more familiar to me as an NPC named ‘Card Cheater Chero’.
He sighed deeply and still remained in his seat.
And he said quietly.
“This is a crazy gamble. Even if I squeeze out all the divine power I have, there are only 4 people. “Maybe there are 5 of them…”
The Demon God looked back with a bitter smile.
“Will we be able to find God’s successor among them?”
“Can I, who lost all my spiritual power, stay sane and wait until then? “I don’t know.”
The video ended there.
[The recording is finished. Do you want to play again?]
The seventh playback has ended.
I thought, suppressing something that was rising inside me.
‘So, was Gzermiu still waiting?’
For a long period of a thousand years?
I tried hard to suppress it, but an indescribable feeling disturbed my heart.
I pushed it away and organized the information in my head.
‘The sacrifice of a great man.’
‘A world about to die.’
‘Gzermiu, the demon of fate.’
‘Dragon Lord Eurovis.’
And finally, ‘God’s successor.’
In order to escape the maze spread between these keywords, I had to constantly use my brain.
A time when a conclusion was slowly emerging from the collected information.
There was a commotion among the knights.
“The Madness Mountains.”
“Wow, that’s cool…?”
It seemed that the sea of trees had finally ended and a vast mountain range was revealed.
The Madness Mountains where the hidden dungeon ‘Dead Goat’s Cave’ is located.
And just beyond that point was the Kaibar Plateau.
‘Maybe there’s an answer to everything there.’
I looked back thinking that.
“His name will be ‘Ferrarendio.’”
Then Vinokharas, who knew the meaning of the saying, blinked.
“Is this a name that contains your father’s hopes?”
“That’s the way it is.”
‘A person who seeks answers.’
Now, more than ever, I wanted to get an answer.
This world brought five players, including me.
And something that the gods who want to save this world are waiting for.
I was desperately curious about the answers to all of these things.
