– Volume 6 Episode 3
Choe-eun carefully denied it.
“No… Even if they have the same ability, as you know, the degree of that ability differs depending on the amount of innate magical power or various factors. I heard it.”
“Ah, I see, so it is.”
Jeong Dae-sik liked it prematurely, but was disappointed and licked his tongue.
Seo Ji-won, a crazy wizard, knew how to use space magic on rare occasions, but only at close range.
The same is true of the magic he mainly uses.
He mainly used space separation and space transfer magic, but the distance was only a few meters at most.
It was also difficult to write for people.
It seemed like it was because there was an error in the magic and it might hurt someone.
Daesik Jeong changed the question.
“But are you sure Seo Ji-won has the same abilities as a portal maker?”
“I think… it’s not exactly the same, but it’s similar. If you ask your sister who knows the portal creator, you’ll get a more accurate answer.”
“Well, then, when is Choi Hee coming back?”
“I said I didn’t know how long it would take this time.”
Presuming that he had gone far on a secret mission, Jeong Dae-sik moved to the center of the portal.
Just because the portal was created, it wasn’t something anyone could use.
It ate a huge amount of magical power, so it was difficult to even move the things he had on his body, clothes, bags, etc.
Moreover, it is very difficult to move other people together.
Therefore, those who used portals had to move through space with their own magical powers.
This was the reason why portals were not popularized.
Choi Sun-do took out a magic stone to see if he could not use the portal with his own magical power.
Then he said holding it.
“Spread your magic power through the jin drawn on the floor. And if you shout the starter word, you’ll know how to use the magic automatically. Then just do it.”
“Isn’t there a case where it doesn’t work?”
“Sometimes it happens. Sometimes I fail once or twice. Still, if I practice, I can move without too much trouble. Try it first.”
Jeong Dae-sik poured his magical energy to the floor as Choi said.
Then the portal lit up brightly.
Jeong Dae-sik saw that enough magical power was delivered to the portal and recited the best words to start.
A certain knowledge was implanted in my head as I was afraid to speak.
It was not simply operated with portals and magic, but the mover had to understand space movement to some extent and use the magic as it is.
The start-up word was only an input word that showed the method.
The method was quite difficult, so Jeong Dae-sik seemed to understand why people sometimes failed.
He carefully pumped magical energy into each of his cells.
Soon the portal came into action, and his body began to scatter in the air.
Severe dizziness came over me.
It’s a difficult sensation to simply call it dizziness.
It was as if the discomfort of flying in a dungeon was multiplied thousands of times.
When I woke up again, I saw a completely unfamiliar landscape.
‘Have you succeeded?’
Jeong Dae-sik withdrew from the portal, and the best followed soon after.
Her expression wasn’t very good either.
“I have severe motion sickness.”
As Jeong Dae-sik spoke, Choi-sun nodded.
“They said it was made to imitate the entrance to the dungeon… They said the stabilization was not that perfect. I heard that the bigger the portal, the more complicated it is to draw the camp.”
“Okay? So where are we going now?”
Jeong Dae-sik walked along his best and looked around.
He was on a hillside.
The castle ruins, which looked like old ruins, could be seen beyond the sparse forest, and houses were scattered across the ridge.
Most of the houses had separate large buildings that looked like warehouses. Occasionally seeing flames and smoke rising from there, I wondered if it was a forge.
Choi Seon said as he walked away.
“This is where Gregory, the most famous master master in Switzerland, resides. All the villages you see here are inhabited by disciples who want to learn their skills from Gregory.”
Gregory was the best blacksmith in the world that even Jeong Dae-sik had ever heard of.
Choi Hee also entrusted his armor to him several times.
It was probably because of the relationship at that time that Jeong Dae-sik was sent here.
“You mean all the people living here are disciples?”
“Yes. Gregory-sama is widely accepted as a disciple. Of course, there are not many who remain for long.”
Choi sprinted across the trail at a brisk pace.
I passed a few houses and came to a house with a red roof that had been stripped of paint.
He knocked on the door of the house and Choi opened his mouth clumsily.
Soon the door opened and a man with a thick white beard appeared from within.
The man was talking about something, but it sounded like German.
I couldn’t understand anything he was saying.
The best is that he seems to be able to understand, but communication didn’t seem that smooth.
Jeong Dae-sik was frustrated, so he called out entropy after thinking about it.
“Link with me and translate in real time.”
The man seemed to be startled by the sudden appearance of entropy.
For a moment, then, he chuckled and said with a tone of admiration.
“It’s been a while since someone with such a talent has been able to do it!”
Entropy translated the man’s words, so Jeong Dae-sik was able to open his mouth comfortably.
“I came here with the introduction of Mr. Choi Hee. Can I please excuse the enchantment problem?”
“Even so, I was waiting. Come hear me.”
Jeong Dae-sik entered the small house with Choi Seon as the man’s guidance.
The man gave me a cup of tea and a cookie, and he took it with gratitude.
“I’m Daesik Jeong, and as you may already know, this is Choi Sun-sun, the younger sister of Choi-hee. Nice to meet you. That person…?”
“Nice to meet you. I am Gregory.”
“Mr. Gregory? The master…?”
“I’m sorry. I thought you’d be an older person.”
“As you know, it is difficult for the Awakened to be old. Isn’t it only 10 years since the world of extended reality began? I’m old enough I am 45 years old this year.”
The man had gray hair and a white beard covered his face.
Even so, the good-looking eyes and the straight lips somehow made him look younger.
Perhaps it was because of the refreshing energy emanating from him.
He must have been a man full of magical powers, but even if he was still, his energy was subtly felt.
“I’m sorry, but I don’t have much time, so I’ll rush to the point. You want to enchant?”
“Yes, I received the enchantment scroll from Mr. Choi’s favor, but in Korea, it was difficult to find a blacksmith who could handle it, so I asked Mr. Choi to introduce me. I didn’t know it was Mr. Gregory…”
Jeong Dae-sik was a little shy.
If it was a simple enchantment, it would have been enough to meet a Korean artisan.
However, Choi Hee introduced me to this place, so I came all the way here.
In other words, it was like catching a rabbit with a famous sword.
‘I wish I had come with Ki Chul-min.’
When Jeong Dae-sik brought out the Magjeon and Enchantment Scroll, Gregory looked at it carefully.
“Hmm,” he patted his chin and asked an unexpected question.
“Is this the only one you have?”
“No matter how you look at it, this looks like part of the body armor.”
Jeong Dae-sik naturally looked back at his best.
Since it was an item from her, the origin of Magjeon must have been best known.
But Choi was also tilting his head.
“When I got my hands on that, there was only one part.”
“Where did you get this?”
“I got it by accident during the first Monster Break. After that, it was useless, so I left it alone. Then, I thought it would be better for Daesik Jeong to use it, so I asked my sister for her opinion and gave it to me.”
“I see. So, if you don’t have a set, you can’t enchant?”
Gregory shook his head at Jeong Dae-sik’s question.
“It is not. It’s just that I’ve seen something similar to this in other places.”
“A similar thing?”
「Actually, should I say different parts? If this is a pair of wrist armor, then the one I saw was foot armor.”
Jeong Dae-sik asked Donghae out of curiosity.
“Where did you see that?”
“What kind of auction house did you see? Now it’s in the hands of some luxury man. Perhaps it belongs to the Palmer family, one of America’s greatest conglomerates?”
According to Gregory, American billionaire Jade Palmer bought the leg parts.
He has a hobby of collecting all kinds of items from the dungeon, and he said that he was interested in armor among dogs.
“Perhaps he bought it with the intention of collecting all the other parts. I may have collected a few by now.”
Jeong Dae-sik nodded his head as he never thought that the Magjeon was part of the full body armor.
However, it was also true that if possible, I wanted to collect all the parts and have a complete magic warfare.
‘The power of one Magjeon is this much, but how much power would it be if you collected all the body armor? Maybe it’s huge? It might become an L-class weapon that can only be communicated through words. But it will be just as dangerous. It consumes magical power to the extent that it would be difficult to use it with just one Magjeon, but what about full body armor? It would be nice if I didn’t get sucked into death.’
Jeong Dae-sik decided to think about that part gradually and asked for an enchantment.
Gregory went out to the smithy with the magic sword and scroll.
In the forge, a young man and a young boy, who appeared to be craftsmen, were waiting.
They put Danjaro aside and waited for Gregory.
Gregory took a seat in front of the hearth.
But the fire pit was unbearably cold.
There was a lot of difference from the appearance of a general blacksmith because there were no tools to make a fire.
But when Gregory seized the bellows and began to blow the wind, an astonishing scene occurred.
The magical energy he breathed in the bellows turned into a scorching flame and ran into the furnace.
It soon began to radiate tremendous heat.
It was a fire of a different nature from the heat produced by ordinary fire.
It was not simply hot, but there was a tremendous amount of light and power.
Other blacksmiths dealt with mysterious metals in a similar way, but they primarily used fire.
However, like a normal blacksmith, it was a way to light a fire in Danya-ro and infuse it with magic power, but not with only magic power alone.
Even if you do, the fire will go out quickly.
This is because the fire of perfect magic required an enormous amount of magic.
