– Volume 5 Episode 15
Chapter 28. Establishment of Fenrir Troops
I must have replaced my weapons, I must have secured enough funds, and I am ready.
Within a few days, the story of Daesik Jeong took shape.
Kang Yeong-hoo gathered Jeong Dae-sik and the commanders of each unit and presented a new blueprint.
“As you know, the commander of Frankenstein’s unit is retiring after this contract.”
At the words spoken by Young-hoo Kang, Captain Frankenstein lightly bowed his head, and everyone applauded in congratulations.
“At the same time, two members of the Frankenstein Unit also decided to leave the Titan Unit, effectively disbanding the Frankenstein Unit. Also, Gye-Young Seok, who was in charge of the temporary unit commander of the Cthulhu Unit, declined the position of unit commander. The Cthulhu unit also decided to disband this time.
And as everyone already knows, Daesik Jeong here has not only risen to rank 5 this time, but also became a quadrupleist, so he became independent from the Foreign Legion and formed a new unit. Therefore, a major overhaul of the entire Titan raid is inevitable.”
Kang Yeong-hoo looked around the commanders once and continued.
“I will be able to take this opportunity to redeploy the crews according to the characteristics and balance of each unit. However, I will give priority to the new unit’s Daesik Jeong. He will personally select the members he wants from each unit, and Frankenstein The units and the members of the Cthulhu unit will be distributed to other units.”
Kang Yeong-hoo’s words caused a stir among the commanders.
It was because of the promise to give Daesik Jeong priority in the selection of crew members.
Kang Yeong-hoo read the hint and gave him an opportunity to protest.
“Then let me ask you a question.”
Afraid that Kang Yeong-hoo’s words were falling, Captain Echidna raised his hand and opened his mouth.
“I’m sorry, but the current echidna unit’s composition is perfect. There’s nothing to add or subtract. Do I still need to change the members?”
“If the commander doesn’t want it, it doesn’t matter. But can we accept additional members of Frankenstein and Cthulhu?”
“What I want to ask you is about the new unit. If the new commander over there… says he wants my unit, should I give it up without a word?”
All the unit commanders were paying attention to the problem.
Being able to change out a team member you don’t like is welcome, but you don’t want to lose your favorite member to Dae-Sik Jeong.
Kang Young-hoo dismissed the issue in one word.
There was an immediate backlash when asked to do so without any explanation or excuse.
“That’s unfair! Why do you have to give up my squad members to someone who just became commander?”
“No matter how much it takes care of the convenience of the new unit… It would be better to combine the Frankenstein and Cthulhu members into one unit and entrust it to them!”
“Or how about recruiting a new operator?”
Amidst the burst of words, Kang Yeong-hoo raised a hand.
He said with a strict face that he would not allow any further protests.
“If the unit to be operated by Jeong Dae-sik was a unit that undertakes general missions like other units, I would not have given him priority in selecting members. ”
This was the first time Jeong Dae-sik had ever heard of it.
He reflexively asked a question because it was about him.
“A special mission… What kind of mission do you mean?”
“It’s a dungeon attack specialized unit.”
At those words, the crowd became quiet.
Kang Young-hoo’s words continued.
“Recently, the government has been increasing requests to capture dungeons. This is closely related to the recent changes in the hunter society. In the past, hunters had their purpose in killing the existence of another world. So, to kill the boss mob and take out its core, the magic stone, that was the absolute mission of those who were born with this ability.
But 10 years from the beginning of the extended reality world. The world is changing day by day. The vast resources of the dungeon, and the wealth created by it, has a lot to do with it. Hunters are starting to pay more attention to the money that arises from that, rather than the mission of eradicating monsters or attacking dungeons.”
As I listened to Kang Young-hoo’s explanation, Dae-sik Jeong’s conscience swelled for nothing.
He kept his mouth shut, suppressing the urge to spit.
“It’s true when you look at the sleigh pot and everything. A large number of Hunters are not interested in getting stronger or in their mission, but only focus on making money. Some large raids are acting like they can’t be called raids anymore. They invest He is focused only on doing business and starting a business. So, of course, the dungeon attack is in the background. Especially if it is a high-risk dungeon where dangerous monsters lurk.”
Kang Yeong-hoo turned around and walked to the window and said while showing his back.
“I don’t know how the world will change in the future, but I don’t think it should be. We Awoken are chosen by God. We must do our duty! That’s how we protect our world from monsters, and we ourselves It is a means of making it stronger.”
Kang Young-hoo spoke softly, but there was power in his voice.
The eyes of the commanders who lined up heated up, and a serious air that could not be described arose.
“…the government must have its limits in encouraging hunters. If it continues like this, the third and fourth monster breaks will follow. The second monster break that occurred last time was local, so the damage was small, but the next There is no guarantee that this will happen, even if only once, a disaster comparable to the first monster break happens…”
Kang Yeong-hoo clouded the tail of his horse like a person who was afraid of continuing the conversation behind him.
He soon turned around and spoke again.
“Of course, I’m not saying that we should have a special unit that specializes in dungeon raids just because of a sense of duty. In high-risk dungeons that hunters avoid, you can get different types of magic stones from normal magic stones.
As of now, there is no progress in the development of magic crystal power generation technology, so the value of magic crystals is not great, but I have a different opinion. Magical stones are clearly the new energy of mankind. Worth investing and holding. I want our titan troops to secure as many magic crystals as possible.”
Jeong Dae-sik was quite surprised to hear what Kang Young-hoo was saying.
He was penetrating the point pointed out by entropy, the fact that mankind was still at an uncivilized level in the use of magical powers.
And it is to anticipate and prepare for the upcoming energy revolution.
‘I am a character, I am a character.’
While Jeong Dae-sik admired him inwardly, Kang Young-hoo glanced at the commanders once and fixed his gaze on Jeong Dae-sik.
When his eyes met, Dae-sik Jeong straightened his posture without realizing it.
“Daesik Jeong is the only quadruple player in the world who has the potential to be an all-in-one. Also, considering his magical power and innate attack power, he already has a level 4 skill level, so it is worth entrusting the future of the Titan Raid.
He will be our face, leading the special forces on the mission of dungeon raids to the forefront. This means that you will enter a dungeon with a risk rating of less than 50% with a survival rate of less than 50%. Are you still dissatisfied with the fact that he has priority in selecting crews? If yes, say it again. I’m going to entrust the newly established special forces to that person, not Dae-Sik Jeong.”
The commanders said nothing.
Some even looked at Jeong Dae-sik with pitiful eyes.
What made it worthwhile was that Kang Yeong-hoo wasn’t just talking about high-risk dungeons and the odds of survival.
There were several dungeons in the world that should have been considered dead just by stepping into them.
Some of the dogs had no way to attack at all, so they were left unattended.
When no one spoke, Kang Yeong-hoo confirmed.
“Then, I understand that everyone here acknowledges Jeong Dae-sik’s priority in selecting members.”
The situation seemed to end there.
But someone opened their mouth.
“…I acknowledge his priorities for selection of his operators. But please also acknowledge our right to deny them.”
Unexpectedly, it was Kim Si-on who said that.
Kang Young-hoo looked at her without saying a word and the story continued.
“No matter how great his abilities, all of the unit commanders here are veterans. It is unreasonable to ask a kid who has never been in charge of a unit to give up his crew recklessly. So, compete with him for a member of the troop, and if you think his skills are right, he’ll be able to respond to his request.”
Jeong Dae-sik thought a lot about Kim Si-on’s words.
She probably isn’t saying that because she doesn’t want Dae-Sik to lose her.
This was to prevent a possible conflict in the future.
If you compete fairly with the commander and take the crew with your skills, neither the commander nor the crew will be able to say anything else later.
Jeong Dae-sik was also able to choose the talent he wanted without noticing other people’s attention.
Kang Young-hoo seemed to be thinking the same thing, but he seemed to be a little worried, but he nodded his head willingly.
“Okay. From the standpoint of entrusting a trooper like a child, you have the right to test that level. What do you think, Jeong Dae-sik?”
Jeong Dae-sik readily complied with the request.
“Then it’s decided. Take a detailed look at all the members of the Titan Raid and make a list of the people you think is suitable for your unit. . When the list is decided, I will give each unit commander a chance to compete with him. If he fights and wins, he can refuse to select his crew.”
This is bet on the talent of the Titan Raid
This was one duel.
The commanders said they were curious about Jeong Dae-sik’s skills, so they flashed their eyes at him.
My back was itching when I unintentionally received the glare of those who had to be at least 6th grade.
At the same time, it was also quite exciting.
‘If it’s not an opportunity like this, when are you going to compete with other hunters? There are as many as 400 talented people above me, so I can’t help but wonder. This is an opportunity to see how well my abilities work against the same Awoken!’
Jeong Dae-sik didn’t even think about making a list.
There is only one standard for him!
‘What do you have to worry about? I just need to pick a strong guy.’
Personality and balance, it was thought to be meaningless to match those things.
If possible, it would be nice if the members of the unit would get along well, but what if they don’t?
The problems that occurred in the raid, party, team, etc. that Jeong Dae-sik saw while serving as a porter had nothing to do with whether the crew was good or bad.
