. Faction Selection (3)
“Okay. It’s been awhile since I’ve left the residence. It was so boring, really.”
“I’m glad I was able to warm up thanks to the intruder.”
“Ummm. How much fresh air is this?”
“Everyone… it’s too loud. Be quiet.”
‘Sylphid’, the spirits of the wind in the form of an innocent girl.
A ‘Gnomish’, a spirit beast of the earth in the form of a small golem.
‘Undine’, a water spirit water in the form of a mature woman.
‘Wisp’, a spirit beast of light in the form of a troublesome boy.
Spirit beasts of four attributes appeared through each door.
Everyone seemed excited about the long-awaited outing, probably because they had been locked up for a long time.
Of course, what I was excited about here was to play cruelly against the invaders.
By the way.
The wind spirit water that appeared the second time tilted her head.
Something is strange.
Aren’t the red lizards lying on their backs with their heads on the ground in front of her?
“Turn it off…”
He was trembling with his arms and legs sweating profusely.
It was hard to believe that the Salamander was famous for being fierce.
“Hey, how did this happen? Why are you doing this?”
The spirits of the earth also opened their eyes wide.
Soil dripped from his lips.
“Did he go crazy after being locked up for so long?”
“Calm down, Salamander! You’re selling out the pride of the spirits, and you’re acting so pathetic!”
“Everyone. Be quiet.”
The rest of the spirit beasts were equally embarrassed.
Potatoes have activated Pierce.
A loud roar echoed along the aisle.
Mana, comparable to a dragon, took over the space.
“Hey, this is…!”
The faces of the spirit beasts changed to earth color in an instant.
At the same time, I understood why the salamander was so scared and rolled up his tail.
The reality is that even fully grown Mythical beasts and spirit beasts do not dare to approach the realm of the ancient species.
The most special ‘Ancient Dragon’ among ancient species
Who can show their teeth in front?
Not to mention, they are nothing more than intermediate spirits who have not yet become adults.
The fight was almost over before it even started.
“What are you doing? Is there an empty seat next to the fire lizard over there?
Jinhyuk, who was sitting on the rock, shook his head.
I didn’t know why humans were such ancient species, but the important thing now was not to resolve those questions.
have to run
faster than anyone.
And more passionately than anyone else, you have to hit your head.
It was only then that he could survive from that formidable ancient species.
thud! thud! thud! thud!
Soon after, all five spirit beasts bowed their heads.
An intermediate spirit beast that symbolizes the five elements.
Who would have imagined that you would see the faces of such proud bastards glowing red?
However, this was not a dream or imagination, but a damn reality.
“Good job. Our sweet potato.”
Jinhyuk gently scratched the nape of the sweet potato.
The sweet potato closed her eyes and enjoyed the touch.
It seemed quite satisfying to wag its tail softly.
Then… … .
It’s a matter of how you deal with them.
The corners of Jinhyuk’s lips went up.
“I don’t know if you guys know, but the sweet potato here is one of the outside directors of our Goin Corporation.”
To be precise, I am in the position of a sales director.
“In the end, our company is hiring interns because it is the second half of the recruitment season. How are you interested?”
Of course, refusal is death.
Even if you fail, it is death.
“Kko, I really want to go in!”
“Even if we don’t know anything else, we’ll do our best for one mission!”
“If I can be with the ancient servant, I must pursue it even to the end of hell. Hehe.”
“I wish I could be quiet, but I’ll do it too.”
The spirit beasts clashed and raised their voices.
As beings who enjoy a life close to eternal life, their obsession with life was different.
“Um. I’m proud to see everyone’s passionate interest in our company, but actually, I don’t like talking too much. I hope everyone understands.”
A bright flame flickered at the tip of Jinhyuk’s finger.
The power to force a coercive oath.
It was the ‘stigma of the soul’.
When the stigma of the spirit beast was imprinted, the spirit beasts’ bodies twitched thinly.
[The spirit beasts of the 5 elements pledge their obedience.]
‘It’s like picking up gold that has completely fallen on the road.’
pounding! pounding! pounding!
Jinhyuk’s heart was beating like crazy.
In the past, it was an intermediate level spirit beast taming that could not even be attempted. Because they were so strong and made up of only tough guys to deal with.
But the existence of an ancient species of sweet potato made the impossible possible.
‘I’m growing much more efficiently.’
The way to see the top of the pagoda.
Although the difficulty increased due to the variables of the character, good variables like this offset that part.
It means that no matter how difficult it is, it can be dealt with sufficiently.
‘No, not at that level.’
At the current pace, he might have surpassed past records. And even faster than expected.
as if to prove it.
A number of status windows appeared in a row.
[You have earned 5,000 Karma points!]
[Curma Karma Ranking]
1st place: Jinhyuk Kang (5,100P)
2nd place: Namgungcheon (450P)
3rd place: Yuseong Cheon (190P)
4th place: Maria (150P)
5th place: Patrick (130P)
6th place: Yoshio (125P)
… … .
The gap between the 2nd and 2nd place is not even comparable at all.
After all, it would be a situation in which everyone would be unable to move freely.
Jinhyuk slowly scans the rankings.
It was only natural that Namgungcheon was at the top.
It was also expected that Cheon Yoo-seong, who does not want to sit still, would run wild.
Elise, everything is bothering you, so you won’t be interested in going through the traps. So, you can’t find it in the rankings.
‘The rest of the people are probably just looking at each other for the penalty due to the defense nerf.’
If you touch it, you will be seriously injured and if you hit it you will die, but even if you have a strong heart, it will be difficult for you to enter the traps willingly.
They are taking advantage of that psychological gap to suck honey in this way, but you shouldn’t expect this stalemate to last forever.
‘At the most, after a few dozen minutes, I’ll make up my mind and start moving.’
Even if the players were to die in large numbers, all the arrows of condemnation would be directed at you who chose the 25th floor.
Before the idiots who are full of wins can take on a reckless challenge, they must finish the ‘next level of work’ as soon as possible.
Jinhyuk closed the Karma window.
‘By the way, the time has come to show interest… … .’
The moment I thought so.
[Many factions show great interest in you!]
[I commend you for your overwhelming performance in ‘Empire’]
[I am afraid of your existence in ‘Murim’]
[The existence of ‘Ancient Sweet Potatoes’ in the ‘Spirit Realm’ is interesting.]
[A total of 13 small and medium-sized forces want to join you.]
[The ‘Third Force’ expresses a very strong affinity.]
Indirect messages from each faction poured in.
The Empire, the Moorim, and the Spirit Realm.
As expected, a lot of big guys came in.
If you include small and medium-sized forces, it seems to have made a strong impression on a fairly large number of forces.
‘Well, if you’re not interested in seeing this, that’s crazy.’
Overwhelming performance and the ability to find a way out even in unfavorable situations.
Above all, the meticulousness of weaving the entire board.
Doesn’t it have all the advantages that factions eager to expand its territory want?
From their point of view, just looking at them will make your mouth water.
However, it was not the Moorim, the Empire, or the spirit world that caught Jinhyuk’s attention.
Hopefully, even these guys will come into contact.
This is going to be fun
Surprisingly, it may become possible to design more complex situations.
A dismayed laugh flowed from Penheimer’s mouth, the sword master of Caladium Kingdom.
Even when the interested person picked the 25th floor of the tower, the atmosphere in the banquet hall quickly heated up.
I had no choice but to do so.
The current players will never be able to break through the labyrinth on the 25th floor with the skills they have.
In particular, the debuff effect that ignores all defenses was a formidable shackle even if the target was a sword master.
By the way.
‘… … Are you saying you’re not afraid?’
The way everyone smiles leisurely even when everyone is bewildered.
As if to show that this floor wasn’t just picked for no reason.
certainty, not coincidence.
Moments later, Penheimer’s expectations became a reality.
After discovering the Hidden Route at the entrance of the labyrinth, the door of the 5 elements appeared behind.
And there, the anticipation of which spirit beast to choose for battle was increased.
But, please… … . I’ll choose to fight all the five spirits.
‘What the hell are you thinking?’
Penheimer unconsciously clenched his fist.
To deal with five spirit beasts, each of which are named, at the same time, was suicidal.
All those worries were in vain.
“Hey, those damn spirits curl their tails.”
“It’s the first time I’ve heard of a player who is a guild of an ancient bell. There is no precedent for securing an ancient bell on our side.”
“What kind of method did you use…?”
The faces of the residents on the second floor contorted in astonishment.
The strongest creature that is hard to see even in the middle of the tower.
It would have been amazing to see that, even the opponent was using such an ancient species completely like a limb.
It was a scene that I had never imagined at all to see the supreme and docile ancient servant struggling to get the attention of his master.
A long-time member of the Mo Yong-se family who has been representing Moorim. Mo Yong-su also felt a cold sweat running down his back.
‘… … He was a much more dangerous person than I thought.’
Jinhyuk was aware of from the 5th floor of the elf forest, but that was only part of the battle.
‘Does that mean that not only the armed forces they have, but also the knowledge of the tower is out of the norm?’
perhaps… … .
I even thought that there was going to be a big change not only in the power structure of the middle class, but also in the entire tower.
All those shocks were just a preview.
“What, what is that?”
“Come on… wait a minute!”
In the next scene… … .
All the residents were at a loss for words.
“Come on, let’s get started!”
Jinhyuk nodded his head.
The spirit beasts flew from all directions and gathered in one place.
There were no mistakes or awkwardness because they were thoroughly pressed with fear and intimidation.
It feels like my heart is getting bigger.
However, this is not the end.
Because the real climax started right now.
“When the five powers come together!”
The voices of the spirit beasts merged into one.
“Spirit Special Forces!”
Just like superheroes. Five spirit beasts gathered in one place.
Jinhyuk jumped up from his seat.
Sweet potatoes also make their eyes twinkle, ‘Mosquito. Mosquito’ was fired.
“That’s right. All intern passed!”
Pair! Pair! Pair! Pair!
As if Jinhyuk was genuinely admiring, he gave a thunderous applause.
Even if I want to give it a disqualification, I can’t. Because he had an appearance scene that was more suitable for the deceased corporation than anyone else.
That was when Jinhyuk was admiring him.
[I want to talk to you in ‘Empire’]
[I want to talk to you in ‘Murim’]
Representatives of both factions spoke at the same time.
Two were caught.
… … This is the game I’ve been playing from now on.
Jinhyuk took a deep breath.
