-7 Volume 3
He made clones of himself, but he was able to create clones of different ages.
To be precise, it was like dividing his age into clones.
So, the more clones were made, the less the fighting ability was.
Later, only children and the elderly could make it, so it had no choice but to make it.
Hearing Kim Song-geun’s words, Lee Jae-woo couldn’t stand the bird and fluttered.
“Then if you make it bigger, will you become an old man?”
Kim Song-geun looked at Lee Jae-woo and said.
“Because the idea is so simple, the embodiment you create is what it looks like!”
Jae-Woo Lee pouted his lips, but he couldn’t protest because he was watching Jeong Dae-Sik.
Strictly speaking, Lee Jae-woo’s words were not significantly wrong.
Kim Song-geun’s alter ego tended to increase in age when he tried to make it bigger.
However, he could not create something like a giant like Jaewoo Lee’s Servant.
Kim Song-geun’s alter ego was an alter ego, and he could not escape the human level weight class.
Recalling what Hyunmin Yoon said the other day, Daesik Jeong briefly thought about how to reinforce that part.
But now is the time to focus on the work in front of you.
“That’s enough. Call me over here.”
Jeong Dae-shik took cover from Kim Song-geun’s clones.
Then, he summoned him again by using Summon, ordered to help Kim Song-geun’s clone, and acquired the mapping skill.
Jeong Dae-sik immediately applied the skill to Entropy.
Jeong Dae-sik brought the twelve clones who had become stealthed into the cave with the gnome.
At the same time, entropy, which made the body concealed by stealth, followed suit.
Strictly speaking, Kim Song-geun’s clone was the bait.
Real reconnaissance was purely entropy.
Jeong Dae-sik could see what she was seeing only by sending entropy, and it was possible to measure the terrain in the cave through the mapping skill.
As entropy triggers the mapping, the created but holographic map begins to be constructed again.
Jeong Dae-sik sent the hologram map information to the troops in real time and looked at the situation inside the cave through the view of entropy.
The area near the entrance to the cave was familiar because I had seen it with a drone earlier.
The problem was that the space suddenly expanded.
The drone broke down there…
‘Yes, it’s the wreckage of a drone.’
Jeong Dae-sik checked the drone wreckage rolling down the dark cave floor.
The cave was so dark overall that I could barely see anything.
The light at the entrance was slightly permeating, but it seemed to be enveloped in darkness sooner or later.
Then there is nothing that can be observed even with entropy vision, so I had to purchase a new skill.
‘Entropy, acquire the Jack O’Lantern skill.’
Something else flew like lightning and passed by entropy.
Fortunately, it wasn’t for entropy.
One of the clones who was ahead of the entropy was hit by the attack.
A silent scream erupted, and one of the clones disappeared.
He swung something to the place where the clone had disappeared, and then moved again, but it was dark and he couldn’t see properly.
Jeong Dae-sik used the skill, prepared for entropy to be discovered.
A dazzling fireball appeared in the air, and suddenly the situation of the cave was clearly visible.
The three hunters stood on the rippling floor and surrounded them.
Cloaked imitations of them were passing by.
The light of the Jack O’ Lantern revealed the location and number of Servants, but the clones were also discovered.
Since the stealth skill did not completely hide the appearance of the clone, the Servants’ attacks flew straight to the clones.
Jeong Dae-sik shouted at Kim Song-geun.
“Run without confrontation! Inside!”
Kim Song-geun was sweating profusely and made the clones jump into the depths of the cave.
Kim Song-geun’s clones are different from entropy, so if the distance widens, it causes a significant setback in steering.
If you can see it, it’s better, but if you can’t see it, it’s very difficult.
In the end, three more clones disappeared due to the Servants’ attacks.
They threw stones on the floor and made their feet slippery to disturb the Servants, but it didn’t help much because they didn’t have a proper shape because they were just summoned.
“Entropy, go ahead!”
Daesik Jeong put Jack O’ Lantern in the front and entropy followed him.
They flew through the cave at high speed, and the remaining eight clones followed one after another.
The hunters followed them, but the road was narrow, so they couldn’t move as quickly as entropy or the clones.
They soon reached an open space.
It was a place where the underground water flowing through the bottom of the cave rapidly increased and fell to the bottom.
The ceilings were low and the floor was deep, so it was practically like standing on a cliff.
Another hunter, no, two Servants attacked from there.
‘This is the limit.’
Jeong Dae-sik had his clones deal with five Servants and sent entropy down the cliff where the water was falling.
Entropy flew along the waterway for some time and continued mapping, but was unable to go far due to the limitation of the 5km link.
Jeong Dae-sik said to go as far as 8 km, as far as possible.
As soon as 8km was reached, the actualization of entropy was canceled.
Still, the hologram map is much more specific than before.
Jeong Dae-sik said while looking at the crew.
“What can be reconnaissance is limited to this point. Three people at the narrow entrance leading to the wide passage, two further along the waterway, and there is a cliff, and underground water is flowing below it.”
Jae-woo Lee, who was looking at the hologram map in the same way, asked Jung Dae-sik’s explanation.
“Where is Asmodeus?”
“It must be in a deeper place. To find it, I will have no choice but to move along the groundwater.”
Jeong Dae-sik got up from where he was hiding and gave instructions.
“The entrance is narrow, so you can only move in one line. It is important when you encounter a Servant in a place where the passageway widens. First, I move in order of me, Deok-Hwa God, Cheol-Min Ki, Song-Geun Kim, Jae-Woo Lee, Mirae Heo, Ji-Won Seo, and Tae-Hee Kim. And when the Servant appears For now, I’ll deal with it, but move according to each situation.”
Seo Ji-won was crying when she stood next to Kim Tae-hee again.
Jeong Dae-sik ignored it and said.
“One thing to keep in mind is that Servants are hunters like us. From what I’ve heard, they are level 7 or 8 hunters, so they won’t be that intimidating. Since they are being manipulated by Asmodeus and have no reason, focus on freeing them from Servants with the Awakening Scroll. After that, Seo Ji-won moves the hunters out. Can you do it?”
“Then let’s get in.”
Fenrir’s troops went into the cave with their presence dead.
The entrance to the cave was quite narrow, so I could only enter after pulling up the vines covering the entrance and bending my back.
Once through the entrance, the inside was quite spacious.
As I walked a few more steps, I was able to walk with my back straight.
After walking along the downward-sloping passage, stepping on rubble, the air became humid and dark everywhere.
With only the sound of groundwater being stepped on the floor, Jeong Dae-shik realized that the Servant was getting closer and gave a stop sign.
He gestured for the fact that there were three Servants and ordered them to wait.
Then, entropy was summoned to the fore, and the linked consciousness gave detailed instructions.
After that, the entropy was blown away first, leaving the Fenrir troops behind.
Surprised by the appearance of entropy and the sudden light, the Servants attacked the entropy all at once.
However, the disturbance deflected all the attacks.
Jung Dae-sik, who jumped inside following entropy, stretched out his left hand while taking advantage of the Servants attacking the wrong place.
Then entropy started the auxiliary skill in time.
The round sphere-shaped magic that was shot out from the magic battle hit the three Servants directly.
However, it was a technique that was used when fighting Echidna, commander Jeong Seung-chae, not for attack, but for capture.
The magic field, the size of a fist, disappeared as if it were absorbed into the body as it touched the Servants’ bodies.
It soon swelled into a donut shape and tied the Servants’ arms tightly.
It looked like it had been caught in a tight fitting tube.
The three Servants let out a dry sound.
The hunters who became Servants had no expressions on their faces, and the words that came out of their mouths were also of unknown meaning.
Jeong Dae-sik ordered the Fenrir troops to enter and used the skill.
Jeong Dae-sik already possessed the awakening skill, so there was no need for a separate scroll.
When the awakening skill was used on the three Servants, they fell forward like puppets with broken threads.
After using the healing skill once, Jeong Dae-sik beckoned Seo Ji-won.
“Seo Ji-won, get them to a safe place.”
Seo Ji-won immediately moved the three people out of the cave.
The members of Fenrir, who were nervous about whether it would be like fighting hunters like them, admired Jeong Dae-sik, who simply handled the work, and at the same time was disappointed.
“When I heard that there were more than ten hostages, I thought about what to do, but if there is only the captain, there will be no problem.”
“That’s right. I wanted to check the results of the training once.”
Jeong Dae-sik said after hearing the chatter of Ki Chul-min and Kim Song-geun.
“If it’s the result of training, I’ll be able to test it against monsters that aren’t the same hunter. Then I’ll keep going.”
Reaching the end of the passage, Jeong Dae-sik easily subdue the Servant in a similar way to the previous one and returned him to the Hunter.
After Seo Ji-won got him outside, Jeong Dae-sik blew the Jack O’ Lantern down the dark cliff.
Then, along with the loud sound of underground water gurgling, I saw a fairly large stream of water flowing violently.
Seeing the blue flowing water in the dark darkness, Mi-rae Heo asked in fear.
“How do you follow this waterway to find Asmodeus?”
“I don’t know how to swim.”
While the surprised crew members spoke one word at a time, Dae-Sik Jeong ignored those words and sent entropy away.
It was to see where the passageway through which the groundwater flows continued.
“Map and send information.”
Entropy soon flew into the darkness and the holographic map began to update.
Jeong Dae-sik looked at the gradually growing holographic map and looked at the terrain.
Looking through the linked view, entropy had already gone into the water.
It was probably a completely submerged tunnel with no room to breathe.
The entropy that swam as if swept through there for a long time rose again out of the water.
