Dead Mountain Goat’s Cave
“One week? “It’s been a week?”
“No, to be exact,
it’s been over a week. “There was a time to pass through the Sea of Trees and a time to get out of Makadi.”
I guess it’s about ten days?
When I answered that, Roxanne screamed.
“shit! shit! “Jezeraaaal!”
The Archwitch’s scream created a torrent of magical energy, the aftermath of which hit the ground.
Unrefined waves shook the mountainside and sent the birds flying far away.
Among the knights surrounding us, the lower-level ones were so upset that they were completely nauseous.
The young hatchlings also trembled and cried due to the shock wave.
I furrowed my brow and stood up.
“This woman is really…!”
No matter what, you get a beating.
“You can’t sink it right now!”
Heviod’s blade flashed.
I don’t know why, but I couldn’t tolerate her freaking out as soon as she woke up.
But the moment I drew my sword.
“Gilroshan! “No, you are the 3rd prince!”
“What is it?”
To her dismay, Roxanne fell flat on the floor.
Then he bowed his head to me and began to shout at me.
“Please! “Please return to the Empire right now!”
Do you want me to go back to the empire?
“What kind of nonsense is this?”
I didn’t understand what that meant at all.
But Roxanne hit her forehead on the ground and started screaming.
“We must go back now! Otherwise everyone might die! no! This is not a possibility! The emperor will definitely kill everyone!”
“So why the emperor?”
“please! please! I’ll give you everything I have! Please return to Certion together! Please save the wizards of Chromatic Spire!”
I froze at those words.
He had an intuition of what Roxanne Sciorra had done.
‘…This woman deceived the emperor and came looking for me.’
oh my god.
My mind feels dizzy.
‘The Five-Colored Spire is an institution that must be devoted and loyal to the emperor and the empire…’
You deceived the emperor?
It was completely suicidal.
The emperor was, after all, a psychopath who was anxious to kill humans.
He was like a butcher who would kill anyone who was even the slightest bit annoying to him.
‘But did you deceive that guy?’
Who is the owner of the Five-Colored Spire?
I took the heaviode and touched my forehead.
“What on earth were you thinking when you did that? “Why did you do that?”
“Huh huh. I didn’t know it would turn out like this. “I thought I would just talk to you for a bit and then go back to the Empire!”
Roxanne ends up crying.
I sighed, looking at Roxanne, who was shedding tears in front of me.
I had nothing to say.
As much as Roxanne knows her master well.
I also knew Bareshan well.
He was one of the biggest dark figures in the original < Shin.Ver.se > and was also the father of this body.
As time goes by and synchronization with Gilroshan progresses, the memories he left behind also become clearer.
So I could be sure of that too.
‘As Roxanne said, the emperor is a man so great that he could kill all the magicians of the Five Colored Spire.’
The fact that Vareshan is a psycho who can do such ridiculous things without blinking an eye.
I too could say this with certainty.
That wasn’t the only problem.
I went one step further and was thinking about other problems that could arise.
Kals and Tirvaen.
‘shit. Are you two going to be okay?’
In order to control the struggle for the crown prince, I gave the two people a letter and a plan and sent them back to Certion.
He thought that if he provided them with the scenario information of the original game, it would not be that difficult to control the situation in the imperial family.
But things took a strange turn.
‘Originally, the role of the Five-Colored Spire was to remain as the emperor’s liaison.’
But at this point, they get caught in a weird way?
So will Bareshan just leave that position empty?
‘No, of course we will fill it with a new one. With elements I can’t predict.’
If so, it was like one axis of my plan was falling apart.
In other words, it meant that the operation being carried out by Kals and Tyrvaen could be ruined.
My headache hurts.
There was only one conclusion.
‘We need something tangible to divert the emperor’s attention right away.’
Otherwise, I had no choice but to go back myself.
It was truly absurd.
The dead mountain goat’s cave and the Kaibar Plateau are just around the corner.
‘I have to go back to the empire?’
That crazy emperor is Kertion with his eyes wide open so he can eat me?
‘It was only yesterday that we split up the knights…’
It got really funny.
But in a place this far away, there was no other way.
Here, I could not think of any way to aggro the supreme emperor of that empire.
If I think about it carefully, this was all the result of the butterfly effect created by me.
So I had to take responsibility.
“If I do not return, please take Hael and cross these mountains to the Kaibar Plateau. “Please.”
Leaving behind the speechless knight commander, I gestured to Vinocaras.
“Let’s go, Piyong. “Fly north as fast as possible.”
Vinokharas read my will and returned to the main body in an instant.
The black dragon spread its wings and stretched out its long neck toward the sky.
A huge black dragon that appeared in the middle of the Madness Mountains.
Then Roxanne opened her eyes wide.
The witch sat down on the ground and opened her mouth.
“Could it be that big dragon…? “But beep beep?”
Come to think of it, it was Roxanne’s first time seeing Vinocaras, who had been fainting the entire time.
-My name is Vinocaras!
I tapped the dragon’s neck without saying a word.
The witch was caught in the dragon’s paw.
This is how we go to Certion.
“…think of the discomfort of that seat as the price you pay for your ambition.”
What if Roxanne hadn’t come to negotiate with me?
‘Then I wouldn’t have had to take this risk.’
I really resented the witch who changed the flow of the original story.
But if you look at it another way, this woman was also a victim.
What would it be like if I didn’t exist?
‘Then Roxanne would have behaved calmly as the emperor’s left arm…’
She would not have suffered the loss of Mirae Eye in the Beast Tribe’s territory.
‘It would have been enough for Roxanne to follow the flow of the original work and fulfill her role as the owner of the Five Colored Spire.’
So we were each other’s cause and effect.
When I opened the lid, I saw people who would have been better off without me.
It was then that her words suddenly came to mind.
-I thought there was a high possibility that other players would become enemies. That’s why I was wary of you.
She understood this world as reality, not a game.
That’s why they couldn’t easily accept my strategy.
Now I understand.
‘A causal relationship that doesn’t know where it will go.’
If this world was reality and not a game, we had to keep that in mind.
It was natural to treat everything with caution.
Eve, who faced the ‘world where God left’ one step before me, had already come to this realization.
‘Of course, I was overly cautious.’
It was that moment.
There was something that passed through my mind like lightning.
“wait for a sec. Eve Wyler…?”
Yeah, there was a way, right?
Is it worth a try?
I hurriedly stopped Vinocaras.
-what’s the matter? dad?
“Go back down! hurry!”
Suddenly a new idea came to mind.
A very easy and quick way to draw aggro to the psychopath emperor sitting in Certion.
“Hael! “Quickly start clairvoyance and mental perception!”
I shouted that as soon as I returned to the ground.
“what? Lowering? “Didn’t you go?”
“Oh, by the way, did you go hunting for bugs just now?”
My companions, who had been embarrassed when I left earlier, welcomed me with even more embarrassed faces.
But it’s meal time, right?
“I’m sorry, but if it’s a bug, I’ll catch a bunch of it later, so tell it to come right now.”
“Ah, I get it.”
And then I started pouring out everything that was in my head.
“First, I will send you a communication magic scroll. The destination is the Duchy of Wyler, about two hours southeast of here, but I don’t know exactly where the recipient is.”
“If you just know what to look for, you will be able to find it quickly. “It’s an eagle eye.”
“First, I need to find a woman who has a white face and looks about my age. And she has very dark blue eyes… No, she may be disguised as a man, so I think it would be better to search for magical power patterns. “I’ll tell you the pattern.”
Then Hael’s eyes became bright.
“Is this the woman I saw before? Did you say ‘Eve Wyler’?”
Thinking back, Hael had met Eve before.
When I received the Destiny Codex from Eve right after I got Hael out of the dungeon.
Even for a moment, Hael also encountered Eve.
“That’s right, since I know your face, it will be easy to find you! Just send him a communication magic scroll. “It’s possible, right?”
Hael pouts her lips as if she doesn’t like something.
But it wasn’t the time.
Once I made contact with Eve, I could feed Emperor Bareshan a large meal of thick taffy.
“It’s not my fault if I can’t find it.”
With Hael’s particularly grunting words, Cheonniung flew up.
And about 3 hours later.
After contacting Eve, I was entering the ‘Cave of the Dead Goat’.
It was just as I wanted.
‘It’s nice to hear your voice for the first time in a while.’
[Enter the hidden dungeon ‘Dead Goat’s Cave’.]
[Special qualifications are required to enter.]
[Please prepare proof of qualifications.]
* * *
The hideout of the Duchy of Wyler.
“…It’s still bold.”
After finishing the communication spell, Eve rested her chin and thought for a moment.
Then Deacon Lafer came over and placed cookies and tea on the table.
“Are you the 3rd Prince?”
“yes. “It was that guy.”
Laper laughed at Eve’s answer.
“I was really scared when that bird suddenly appeared and sat on my shoulder.”
“Iknow, right. It seems like it was quite urgent. “It’s obvious that Gilroshan also has a contact network with the Resistance.”
“But why did you suddenly contact me? “Is something wrong with you?”
“Ah, what can I say about that….”
Eve took a sip of warm herbal tea and smiled a smile that did not fit the old room.
“In one word, should we call it a ‘plot to rebel’?”
Then the butler’s expression became serious.
“A plot to rebel? Are you talking about Emperor Bareshan?”
“Sure. “Then you really want to become a traitor against Prince Wyler, who is ruining everything?”
“Heh heh heh…”
But the princess had a nonchalant expression.
“There is no need to be so surprised. He too is finding his own path.”
When Eve lost her way and wandered.
Gilroshan helped her find her way.
Then, this time it was his turn to help Gilroshan.
Eve simply ordered.
“Rafer, free the ‘Daejeong’ from the Demon King’s emblem that was confiscated last time.”
It was to temporarily lend Gilroshan an enormous weapon that he did not have.
