– Volume 6 Episode 22
If it was the amount of mana, it could be improved through training.
Didn’t you acquire the status enhancement skill for that?
If you are in a hurry, you can buy it with money, so there was nothing to worry about.
“If you upgrade the shop to Lv7, it might be possible to use skills on your own.”
“The problem is…”
“Ugh, 1 trillion won…”
Jeong Dae-sik, who was rolling the enormous amount of money in his head, suddenly asked a question.
“By the way, where does Democritus get his money and spend it? Isn’t it funny? Even though he’s a rookie, he needs this money?”
“So, isn’t it strange that the price is money? Other gods demand fate and things like that. Let’s make it look like nothing.”
“What… Then, if I had been such a person with a sense of justice, the price would have been different?”
“Then demo blah, the ultimate purpose of that god isn’t money…”
Jeong Dae-sik’s head suddenly became confused.
“You make me strong? What do you do to make me strong?”
Jeong Dae-sik frowned.
“Why did you suddenly stop saying anything after answering well so far?”
It was only after hearing those words that Jeong Dae-sik realized that Entropy had talked about Democritus a lot today.
Perhaps new information was updated as the level increased.
Jeong Dae-sik said while raising his eyebrows.
“Okay, so what’s the public information?”
“A war of the gods?”
This is the story of entropy.
There are various gods in the various dimensions of the universe, and they have competed with each other for their own ends.
For that, some gods created life, and some gods destroyed it.
Other gods gave special powers to their chosen race.
“You mean the Awakened?”
“Well, you mean the aliens out there in the universe were also chosen by the gods?”
Jeong Dae-sik felt a shock.
Are monsters chosen by God?
He hastily shook his head.
“Wait, what does that mean? Are you saying that monsters are also some kind of angle, awakening?”
Then I saw it made sense.
Monsters had special abilities that normal humans could not reach.
In addition to excellent stamina, strength, and agility, they also possessed amazing regeneration and recovery power, and they used magic and magic, and, like the undead queen, rose from the dead and displayed all sorts of bizarre abilities.
Some monsters had great abilities that made me wonder if they were gods, so it wasn’t strange for them to be awakened.
“What, then… Humans and monsters are fighting each other because of God’s choice and what that purpose is?”
“Am I also a part of that chess piece?”
“What the hell do you mean… What is the purpose of that god?”
“I really do! Who wants to use the Earth as a battlefield? Aren’t we the ones who see blood in this and that way? Why do we have to follow the will of the gods to fight monsters?”
“Then please explain briefly!”
“So, who are you doing what you want? We have no reason to go to war!”
Jeong Dae-sik was speechless at the sudden question of entropy.
He knew nothing, but only that the world before the advent of the extended reality world was grim.
As oil prices ran out, the world experienced an unprecedented oil shock.
The development of alternative energy failed repeatedly, and there was widespread talk that World War III might break out to capture the small amount of oil remaining.
Due to the melting of the glacier at the pole and the rise of sea levels, several historic cities were flooded, and the extreme weather was polarized, and natural disasters never ceased.
“But if we lose, there will be no soup?”
After hearing the story of entropy, I was worried for nothing.
‘It’s the last war.’
If it was a story that had nothing to do with him, he wouldn’t care whether the earth was destroyed or not, but it was clear that the war was not far off.
There was a lot of talk about the recent Monster Break.
[The most plausible hypothesis is that this is an omen.]
[That’s right. Think about it. Neither the second monster break nor the third monster break were virtually incomparable to the first monster break.]
[The first monster break was when the dungeon was first created.]
[you’re right. It was a moment when mankind almost perished.]
[It would have been the case without the existence of the Awakened.]
[It is said that it was such a big event that it threatened the existence of mankind. In fact, neither the second nor the third is at a level worthy of being called a Monster Break compared to the first Monster Break.]
[This monster break only happened in some areas.]
[you’re right. And it’s happening all over the world. A localized monster break occurred simultaneously in many parts of the world. This is by no means a coincidence. If this phenomenon is repeated, one day, a major disaster equivalent to the first Monster Break will occur. Then it might be the last monster break.]
Daesik Jeong was seriously looking into the internet broadcast played through entropy.
If that hypothesis is correct, several times such a small monster break occurs, and at some point, ‘Pop!’ And the large monster break might explode.
Then there will be an all-out war between the monsters and the awakened who jumped out of the dungeon, and it would not be unreasonable to call it a war.
‘Are you saying that if we lose in that war, the earth will be destroyed?’
It seemed self-evident that the last monster break that surpassed the first monster break would happen, and if it was not stopped, human civilization would go downhill.
There is no need to worry about the war of the gods or anything.
If all of this was a harbinger, we had to prepare for what was to come.
Jeong Dae-sik saw Lee Jae-woo approaching and turned off the screen that was playing in the air.
Then Jaewoo Lee said to him.
“Everyone is ready.”
“Okay? Then let’s go.”
Jeong Dae-sik went to the Fenrir troops who lined up.
Jeong Dae-sik looked at their faces one by one.
The judging was complicated because I thought that hopefully, we might end up fighting the final war with these guys here.
‘Damn… I don’t know when it’s going to explode, so I’m getting impatient for some reason. I can’t help it. All I can do now is do what I can.’
Jeong Dae-sik stood in front of the troops and said with his back on his back.
“As you know, our job is to find and kill the junk mobs that might have hidden in this area. It’s not worth the money and it’s not worthwhile, but it’s also what we should do.”
The faces of the crew members looked carefree.
Jeong Dae-sik said something that could add tension to that laid-back face.
“It is also an opportunity to take a new leap forward. From now on, I will return the price of the Emerald Stone to you.”
When Jeong Dae-sik promised to make them stronger, everyone’s eyes widened.
Jeong Dae-sik, regretting that Kim Tae-hee was not here, made them come forward one by one.
And applied the skills to them in turn.
“Increase targeted magic.”
Jeong Dae-sik recited the starter words and lightly touched their foreheads.
Then, his magical energy transferred from Jeong Dae-shik’s fingertips to the opponent’s body.
With that, Jeong Dae-sik’s magic would activate their physical state.
Jeong Dae-sik, who used the skill for all the troops, said.
“From now on, the more you train, the more your magical power will increase. That is, it is up to you. So, to inspire motivation, I will play a simple game. Let me give you a special present.”
The members of the unit smiled brightly with their faces reminded of excitement and sympathy.
Jeong Dae-sik shouted, “Go!” and signaled.
Fearful of that, the troops dispersed towards the forest at high speed.
The remaining Jeong Dae-sik gave entropy a command.
“Entropy, for twelve hours from now, take turns applying magic enhancement skills to the Fenrir troops. How much has the maximum distance you can travel increased?”
<8 km. However, the link is limited to 5km.>
“I have to make sure I don’t deviate from the 8km distance from the crews who need to update their skills. Instruct me where I should go according to the renewal time and direction of the other crews. Can you do it?”
“Then shall we go?”
As his legs hit the ground, Jeong Dae-sik ran to finish hunting and training at the same time.
He ran for a while, keeping a reasonable distance so that the area did not overlap with the other crew members.
Jeong Dae-sik eventually reached a deep forest where people had completely disappeared.
There was a deep valley where the water had dried up under the ridge as steep as a cliff, and I could feel the faint presence of a monster beneath that valley.
Jeong Dae-sik pays attention and blows entropy into the valley.
Entropy flew along the valley for a while.
A group of monsters eating elk was caught in Entropy’s sight.
‘It’s a red cap.’
Jeong Dae-sik brought entropy back and approached them carefully.
And using a stealth skill, he aimed at them with a magic sword while hiding his body.
Pot! Pot! Pot!
