Strength and Power
There were various grab techniques in the player’s skill tree.
Except for a few advanced comprehensive skills that can only be acquired through vision.
‘Horse riding, dagger skills, marksmanship, knotting skills, cooking reagent manufacturing skills…’ As
long as skill points were invested in these types of skills, the system automatically supported the player’s actions.
Thanks to this, I didn’t have to worry about how to use the Destiny Codex for attacks.
[4 skill points were consumed.]
[Learned the Wanderer Boomerang.]
[The knack for throwing objects and making them come back is absorbed into your body.]
[ A 1% bonus is given to your Intelligence and Charisma.]
All I had to do was use some of my skill points to make the skill my own.
‘This was originally a technique for entertainment purposes.’
But now it seemed like it could be put to good use.
< Wanderer Boomerang >
[Simple Technique] You can throw an object with a weight that can be lifted with one hand and have it come back. However, its destructive power is significantly reduced.
That’s how I learned the boomerang technique.
‘Let’s test it.’
As a test, I took out a dagger stored in my inventory and threw it toward the sky.
A dagger that flies powerfully through the air thanks to its improved strength stat.
Then, at some point, the trajectory changed.
Suddenly, it made a U-turn and came back towards me.
‘…Try to catch it?’
For a moment, I thought about reaching out and grabbing the sword, but then decided against it.
‘I threw it a little hard and it came back too fast.’
This Wanderer’s Boomerang is only a ‘technology that throws an object and makes it come back’, not a technology that allows you to catch the object that came back after being thrown.
Therefore, if you tried to throw your weapon at will and use it as an attack technique, you could end up getting hit in the opposite direction.
…As shown by this dagger stuck on the floor with a vicious force when I took a quick step back.
‘So this technique was used more often when characters holding shields cosplay as Captain America than in actual combat.’
But this time, the weapon I will use is not a sword, but a book.
So the situation will be different.
I stood with my body tilted as if I were a baseball pitcher.
Then, he began to gather strength by pulling the Destiny Codex in his right hand behind his shoulder.
‘Will it fly well?’
The book will come back, and the system will take care of it…
‘But you can still get the book, right? I shouldn’t have to cause damage to myself for no reason.’
Honestly, I don’t know.
I’ve never had anything like this in a game before.
‘Isn’t it possible that God’s power affects me too?’
With such complicated thoughts.
‘Hey, I don’t know.’
Just throw it!
I mustered all my strength and threw the Destiny Codex into the sky.
Then the book made an incredible rotation and soared like a rocket.
I threw it myself, but I was amazed by its fierce force.
And the next moment.
The Destiny Codex that had gone away changed direction like the dagger before and started coming back to me.
A loud noise that comes from extreme speed.
It sounded like a bomber approaching.
I couldn’t help but fall into serious trouble.
‘Can I catch that?’
If you get hit by a book here and your head gets blown off…
you won’t be resurrected, right?
* * *
‘Okay, I got the clue.’
Eurovis was laughing inwardly as he watched Giloshan’s actions.
The human prince was concentrating on throwing and catching the book containing the power of God as if he was trying to use it as a weapon.
At first glance, it looked like a fool.
“Wow! “This is crazy!”
The Book of Destiny came back so quickly that I rolled on the floor in a hurry.
“…Hmm, I don’t think there will be any damage if I do this? Just a little bit faster?”
This time, he snatched the book that flew by too slowly and scratched his cheek.
And then he even lets out a sigh.
The expression on his face was that he wasn’t sure if the work he was currently doing was correct.
But that was the correct decision.
The Dragon Lord, who had a deep friendship with Gzermiu, could be sure of that.
‘Meteorites from other dimensions contain very heterogeneous powers within them.’
If the Absolute of this world was the ‘Great One’… then
there were different Absolutes in the other world as well.
In other words, they were external gods.
Their power remained in the chunk of meteorite that now forms the Demon Temple…
Long ago, the Demon God of Destiny, Gremiu, succeeded in sharpening his power by using their power.
It was natural.
Just as hammering a lump of iron into a sharp sword is the job of an iron hammer.
Because refining the power bestowed by the great man could only be done by the power of an external god who was equal to him.
‘So, it can be said that drawing out the power and beating the giant in the temple was a very accurate choice.’
Of course, that doesn’t mean that the old Gzermiu did the same thing as Gilroshan.
At that time, Gremiu already had the highest rank as a demon god, so he was able to extract an appropriate amount of divine power from the codex.
And the Demon God of Fate transformed it into various weapon forms and struck the meteorite.
In the process of clashing between power and power, Gchermiu found out the total amount and limit of power he could handle… ‘
If he consumes the source of his demon spirit, he will be able to control the fate of the entire world.’ ‘I figured it out.’
The exhausted source could never be restored, but Gzermiu put it into practice.
And it has arrived at the present.
Anyway, if Gilroshan also extracts power from the codex and uses it like Gzermiu did.
I would be able to learn how to use the power of fate much more easily.
‘…But he is a human being without godhood.’
Therefore, it was fundamentally impossible for Gilroshan to extract and manipulate divine powers from the codex.
If you tried to force yourself, there was a possibility that you could get damaged.
Because of this, Eurovis did not tell us about the training method that Germius used.
For now, I just had to wait and see how Gilroshan would use the codex.
And if he failed by the 12th attempt, he planned to take action himself, even if by force.
“it’s okay! “It’s done!”
Gilroshan snatched the Destiny Codex, which returned with fierce force, quite reliably.
“Okay, I think this is enough for now, right? Hey, Mr. Laissez-faire Dragon King. what do you think about it?”
He was bobbing his head, throwing the codex up and down like a pebble and catching it.
Eurovis’ eyes were strange as he looked at it.
‘It’s amazing in many ways.’
Manipulating the power of a god with a human body was not only dangerous but also close to impossible.
However, challengers are inherently required to do so…
and are further forced into a god-like fate.
In the process, I despaired, became angry, and gave up.
‘But Gilroshan is different.’
The human prince despaired, but rose again.
I was angry, but I forgot…
I never learned to give up.
‘Maybe we can really see the end.’
“Let’s begin the 12th challenge.”
And then the meteorite giant began to move again.
_ You can do it.]
[There are 2 chances left.]
‘Through the last 11 challenges, I’ve definitely learned the giant’s pattern.’
Going through the process of having your head fly off and your body exploding.
Now I knew for sure the order in which the giant moved his body.
If I just avoided it, I could buy time until I faint from hunger.
‘…There’s just no way to inflict damage.’
That was the problem.
But if the Destiny Codex works properly…
“We can do it.”
I took long strides towards the meteorite giant.
Then the giant immediately started moving.
The moment when a dull noise of rock rubbing against rock occurred.
The giant’s stone fist rained down on me like a lie.
This time, the attack targets the head first.
I narrowed my eyes and moved.
‘Yeah, I was expecting it.’
It was a fist of incredible speed, but it barely passed me by.
The same goes for the hand blade attack aimed at my feet.
It wasn’t difficult to avoid the attack like this.
All I had to do was follow the route I had planned in my head in advance.
However, the variables were the amount of damage and additional effects caused by throwing this codex.
Attacks using the codex had a knockback or paralysis effect, which could have slowed down the giant’s movements… but
on the other hand, there was a possibility that a rage effect would have occurred, making the giant’s movements faster.
‘I also can’t make the meteorite giant stop without the codex, so it’s quite dangerous.’
But now was not the time to worry about safety.
…There are only two opportunities left, including this one.
‘I have to achieve results somehow.’
Otherwise, even the moments of death I had experienced before would have been in vain.
‘You can’t do that.’
I jumped up and dodged the meteorite giant’s attack once again…
I stepped towards it a couple of times and increased my speed as much as possible.
And taking full advantage of the effect of shifting the center of gravity, he powerfully threw the Destiny Codex forward.
My target was the right leg of the giant closest to me.
I swallowed dry saliva as I watched the book leave my fingertips, spinning frantically and flying away.
‘What happens now? Is it going to jump out after being hit?’
What if I crash and lose my ability to bounce back?
‘…Should I have adjusted the route to pass by appropriately and return?’
I looked at the codex with complicated thoughts.
The worst case scenario is that it bounces off in vain.
‘Eh, no matter what, it’ll probably cause at least a scratch.’
It is an artifact that contains the great power of the Great Strike!
Surely not? Probably not?
The moment the long and short flight ended.
“What is it?”
I couldn’t help but widen my eyes as the situation unfolded before my eyes.
It was completely unexpected.
With a sharp piercing sound that is completely out of place.
The legs of the meteorite giant I was aiming for were cut off.
I couldn’t believe it when I saw it.
As if a giant invisible sword had cut down the rock, the giant lost the area below his right knee.
Destiny Codex, rather than being thrown away, returns without losing any of its initial speed.
I reached out my hand and snatched it, then looked back at the Dragon Lord and said.
“Is this really what it is?”
For some reason, there was no answer.
Does that look a bit embarrassed?
