– Volume 1 Episode 16
Being a duel ability is only the beginning.
With money, all abilities are possible to bloom.
A completely flawless ability that has never been confirmed….
It could be an all-in-one ability.
The thought of that gave me a thrilling shiver.
‘If I become an all-in-one, it’s not just a dream to become the strongest on the planet. Perhaps it is possible to master all the dungeons……’
There was no end to the inflated delusions.
Jeong Dae-sik hurriedly put that thought aside.
‘What a pointless thought. My goal is always to be the owner of the building! After you buy a single building with a monthly rent of 100 million won in the middle of Gangnam, you must strike down this dangerous thing right away.’
If money was the only goal, there would be no need to develop various abilities.
On the contrary, if money was the goal, it was futile.
Basically, this smart ability eats money.
If you try to acquire multiple abilities, the money will go in endlessly.
At the most, it was meaningless to make money if I gave it all to the shop even if I had earned it by hunting.
So Jung Dae-sik thought that a duel ability would be enough, so he looked closely at various skills.
As a result.
‘Observation skill… This is what Entropy was talking about the other day.’
A skill that allows you to check monster information.
That was the observation skill of the spiritual realm.
‘Information about monsters is very important. Not only can you protect yourself, but it is essential for efficient hunting. Whether you continue to go to the makgong or play solo… Once you buy it, it will be useful in many ways.’
With that judgment, Jeong Dae-sik made a decision.
“The mental abilities will bloom. And I will purchase the observation skill.”
Then entropy immediately answered.
The amount of the balance went down, and my eyes suddenly turned white.
It was as if he had been thrown into the divine space again, and he could not distinguish between heaven and earth.
As the gravity disappears, the blood in the body runs wildly…
When he came to his senses, he was sitting in his own room.
But I could feel it.
‘You have acquired the spiritual powers!’
Entropy continued to speak as he was afraid to realize it.
As the balance fell again, the observation skill came in.
Since this skill had to be activated in front of a monster, it was impossible to know right away whether it was acquired or not.
However, since they ate up to 10 million won each, they would have been able to get it.
it had to be
‘The remaining balance is 41 million won… This is good enough.’
Jung Dae-sik smiled as he said he had left an emergency fund.
‘Then the next… is hunting!’
I must have strengthened my magical powers and stamina enough, I must have acquired observation skills as well as my mental abilities, and Jeong Dae-sik thought about going solo.
You will not be able to go against a powerful monster from the beginning.
First, you will have to hunt weak monsters, find out how far you can hunt solo, and decide whether to catch stronger monsters or not.
The problem was that it was time consuming to do that.
Since I had already caught Cerberus once and tasted the money, there was no way slimes or marmots could fill the castle.
The reason I wanted to solo in the first place was because I could monopolize the profits.
Even if he earned only a few million won, there was no point in soloing.
That’s when I was thinking, wouldn’t it be better to keep going to the makgong?
I got a call from Seok Woo-won.
– Jeong Dae-sik! What are you doing? I have to go hunting again.
If it were me, I would have politely declined because I had already been seated in another makgong.
But last time, he had a relationship with Cerberus.
Being able to catch such a powerful monster means that Seok Woo-won and the people who work with him worked well together.
So with them, there was no reason not to catch an object like Cerberus again.
So the words of rejection did not come out of my mouth.
Instead, Seok Woo-won made an unconventional suggestion as he was hesitating without answering.
-If you go hunting together this time, I’ll pay your share more. This is something the other operators agreed with.
“…how much more can you hit?”
– 30% of total income!
Jeong Dae-sik was surprised and threw a counter-moon.
Even the party leaders who make up the party do not take 30%.
About 10% of the total income is taken as a commission, but it could be said that 30% was surprising.
Then Seok Woo-won continued to speak, as if he was a bit naive.
-Actually, after the last hunt, I went hunting with other guys a few times. Without you, I had no income at all. More than anything…….
On the way, Seok Woo-won drew a long horse and Jeong Dae-sik tilted his head.
After waiting for a while, Seok Woo-won let out a broad smile.
– No fun.
Jeong Dae-sik threw a counter-moon, wondering what kind of fun Taryeong it was. Reading his absurd expression, Seok Woo-won spoke quickly.
-Unexpectedly, when you were hunting Cerberus, your blood just boiled in the midst of such a dangerous situation. It’s been a long time since I felt that way. It’s the feeling of not being afraid to die. Thanks to you, the decision was made right.
– Decided to make my own raid. I used to think like a chimney, but as you know, hole hole has its advantages, but there are also many disadvantages. In that case, I was just wondering if it would be better to just keep playing like I am now. But, after catching Cerberus the other day, I realized that I needed to have my own raid. Hunting to take such a risk… The real hunting you have to do as a hunter is not to have a blank slate.
Jeong Dae-shik was silently listening to what he had to say.
Because of that, when Seok Woo-won asked a question, he missed the right time to answer.
-My personal wish is for you to be with me. Of course, I didn’t mean to ask for an answer right away. It doesn’t matter if you say no, but why don’t you try hunting with us at least a few times?
-Then I know that you agree, and I’ll send you the next schedule…
Suddenly, a hunting appointment was made, and Jeong Dae-sik hung up the phone.
Afraid of that, Seok Woo-won sent a message.
It was a message with the muster place, the dungeon to hunt, and the target game.
The Hell Beast was a monster that was one step stronger than the Hell Devil Dog that Seok Woo-won and I caught last time.
He appeared on the 4th basement floor of Dungeon 23, and was strong enough to not attack anyone except those who boasted of their own abilities.
It was quite a dangerous prey for Seok Woo-won and his gang to attack.
But maybe after catching Cerberus last time, I gained confidence.
He seems to have decided that if only Jeong Dae-sik joins, he will be able to catch a hellish beast with difficulty.
This means that the hunt was originally planned with Daesik Jeong in mind.
‘This is a little burdensome.’
Jeong Dae-sik scratched the back of his head as he saw the message.
Seok Woo-won and his party members seemed to depend a lot on him, so his heart was strangely heavy.
His purpose was only money, and he could not understand what Seok Woo-won was talking about, such as fun or joy.
They were fundamentally different from them, so it would have been difficult to make a promise for the future.
It might have been better to just cut it, but…
‘I mean, it’s tempting to take care of 30% of my share.’
Even if you catch a few hellbeasts, you can earn a lot of money.
It was 30% of that income, so it was a difficult offer to refuse.
‘Oh, I don’t know. Seok Woo-won also told me to think about it a bit, so I’ll decline it later, huh.’
Jeong Dae-sik decided to go hunting with Seok Woo-won’s party and lay flat on his back.
“Ah, here it is!”
Wandering around, seeing Jeong Dae-sik appearing, Seok Woo-won’s party, which was gathering in front of Seoul Station, showed a very welcome sign.
“Hey, have you eaten?”
“I was just about to eat a hot dog. Now, this is yours!”
“Eat well and take good care of you today!”
It was friendly to see them chattering around Jeong Dae-sik.
Jeong Dae-sik accepted the hot dog with a smile, and Seok Woo-won approached him and talked to him.
“Thank you for coming.”
“…If you give me 30% of my share, you shouldn’t be able to come.”
Seok Woo-won, who smiled cheerfully, tapped Jeong Dae-sik on the shoulder.
And after waiting for everyone to fill their stomachs with hot dogs, there was a brief briefing before departure.
“As previously mentioned, today’s goal is the hell beast. Although we had previously caught Cerberus, to be honest, surviving from it was close to luck. It’s also thanks to Jeong Dae-sik here.”
A brief greeting ceremony for Jeong Dae-sik passed, and Seok Woo-won continued his speech.
“So, don’t be conceited and carefully attack the Hell Beasts. Don’t think about relying on Jeong Dae-sik alone. The only thing you can trust in the hunting ground is your own skills!”
Even after begging Jung Dae-sik to not be without him, Seok Woo-won kept nagging the party members about not relying on him.
It was only after a while that the main topic was brought out.
“…You must have already been familiar with the details of the Hell Beast? As you know, unlike the Hell Demon Dog and Cerberus, it has one head. Instead, it can turn its entire body into a ball of fire, and its snout spreads all over the place. It has a very wide attack range. It is extremely dangerous because it will tear your limbs once bitten. Be sure to attack from a distance and be careful not to approach from the rear. Also, this bastard swings its tail like a whip. It has serrated thorns attached to it. It’s said that just rubbing your skin will make your skin peel, so if you want to be tortured, go near it. The most important thing is…”
After a moment’s hesitation, he focused his attention and spoke.
“They can’t tell the difference between males and females. The problem is that females are stronger than males. Females can cause some kind of explosion, so it’s quite dangerous. If you get caught up in it, you should all die. Of course, the guys living in the dungeon Most are males, and females are very rare. Chances of encountering females are slim, but if you do, you’ll have to hang out.”
Then someone raised his hand and asked a question.
“No, if you say you can’t tell the difference between males and females, how do you line up?”
Seok Woo-won shrugged and joked.
“If he throws a flirtation, think of it as a female and run away quickly.”
There was a brief laugh, but anxiety ran over the heads of the party members.
Reading the sign, Seok Woo-won spoke carefully.
“There is no way to differentiate between males and females, but when it comes to females, there is a harbinger before they explode. They inflate their bodies, so at that time, quickly run away… The best thing is to hope you don’t run into females. Of course, even if you fall backwards Unless you’re unlucky enough to break your nose, you won’t run into a female, so you don’t need to worry that much.”
Hearing that, someone mumbled.
“There’s no way to be careful if you’re careful. It’s useless, because it’s a hunter’s job to risk your life anyway.”
Everyone burst into laughter when he said that was true.
The only person who didn’t laugh was Jeong Dae-sik.
He couldn’t understand it.
‘What Seok Woo-won means is that if you run into a female, you will die unconditionally. I’m going to take that risk and go hunting, but are you laughing now? If it were me, I would have gone back right away. It’s crazy because I have observation skills…’
What Daesik Jeong believed in was the observation skill he had recently purchased.
He said he could find out about the types, weaknesses, and strategies of monsters, so no matter how confused the Hell Beasts were, it would be possible to tell them apart.
That’s why I’m quiet, if I didn’t have this skill, I would have turned away to say that I couldn’t go to such a dangerous place.
However, the other writers did not have such skills and were smiling peacefully.
Jeong Dae-sik murmured to himself that he wanted to open up what the hell his brain looked like.
Seok Woo-won said, not knowing his true intentions.
“Then let’s try our luck!”
