– Volume 2 Episode 4
He seemed to have a rough idea of how things were going with Ki Chul-min’s explanation.
All in all, it seemed certain that there were more opportunities than running around a sleoljapot or running a raid.
However, it was also considered dangerous.
That is probably why Ki Cheol-min hesitated after accepting the offer.
Jeong Dae-shik was a porter and saw Jeong-gong at work several times.
The reason they hire dealers from outside is to save power.
This is to reduce the effort of catching miscellaneous mobs and to reduce damage when boss mobs appear.
To put it bluntly, it’s a shield.
Blinded by the high pay, many dealers followed them, but the probability of them surviving was only half.
In the case of a real garbage raid, they hardly cared for the lives of the dealers.
They treat it as a tool they deserve to sacrifice for themselves, and they go in to make money and come out as a corpse.
It would be nice if it turned into a corpse.
If the hunt failed, most of them could not even come out with a corpse.
There were many cases where the body was deliberately left behind.
This is because if you become a missing person rather than a dead person, you can delay the payment of the promised remuneration.
The contract itself was even annulled.
It’s okay if you get rid of them for not working with such a dealer in the first place.
It’s very dog-like.
However, not all raids were like this.
Usually, the raid is a place that many hunters envy, and the external image was very important.
After becoming an extended reality world, the role of hunters is to take responsibility for the safety of citizens from monsters, so it is because they have become public figures such as police and soldiers.
Also, as it is closely related to government agencies, it is impossible to take actions that are against the law or against social morals.
The biggest reason is that, after all, it can be sanctioned by a nationally recognized enforcement hunter.
National Certified Enforcement Hunter.
These characters, so-called ‘executors’, were like a kind of secret word.
These were all made up of level 5 or higher hunters, and when they were given a mission, they would take on that role for a while, and then return the authority as soon as the mission was completed.
Nothing concrete was known about this authority, but it seemed almost invincible.
There were rumors that soldiers and police could be mobilized to some extent, and that the equipment and talents of the raids registered in the state could be borrowed and used at will.
Because they could receive support from the state, even if they were not all-out and violent, the name of the Executioner was a feared target for raiders and hunters who committed illegality.
There was no case for the executioners to be dispatched for any reason, but if they did, it should be considered the end.
As a result, the execution rate of the executors was quite high.
This is because the government has a strong attitude towards Awakened crimes.
Korea had a higher level of hunters than any other country in the world.
Naturally, there were many problems that resulted from it, so a rather extreme solution was needed.
Of course, the executors do not mobilize every single one of the illegalities and crimes of the awakened.
Appointments of executors were quite rare.
The process was too complicated, and in most cases, it was difficult to select an executor.
However, it was true that the presence of the Executor created a self-cleaning effect within the Awoken.
Before the state steps out and sends an enforcer, it is to take care of each other and check each other.
Choi Hee played a big role in this.
She too had been an enforcer before she became as famous as she is now.
Choi Hee originally belonged to a large raid group that is said to be the best in Korea.
As an assault leader, he was trusted by the engineering commander, but one day, a colleague seized the spirit of the raid and ran away.
Afterwards, as if covered with something, the companion appeared in various places in the dungeon, killing famous hunters and taking their equipment.
Three Executors were sent from the Executive Council to kill him, but all were unsuccessful.
It was because the killer, armed with excellent items, became stronger than ever before.
The incompetence of the Executive Committee was criticized, and the raids, fearing the appearance of hunter-killers, took refuge, eventually causing the dungeon to explode.
Then, the executive committee pulled out the card that had been saved until the end.
That was Choi Hee.
Through some kind of process, Choi Hee went out to kill the Hunter Killer and succeeded in her mission.
It was later known that he had a close relationship with Choi Hee.
In fact, the Executive Committee knew immediately that Choi Hee had the power to defeat him.
However, he had been hesitant to appoint her as an executor, fearing that he might fail his mission because he was swayed by love.
In the end, with that in mind, I was able to solve the situation only after making Choi Hee an executor and sending him out.
This story is to the extent that no hunter knows about it.
Even the general public was familiar with the fact if they were even a little bit interested in Hunter.
Known as the ‘Hunter Serial Murder Case’, this widely known incident gave Choi Hee more powerful abilities and made her name known in the hunter world.
Since then, it has grown to an SS rank and is now being praised as a superstar.
The thought came too far, so Jeong Dae-sik removed it.
Just then, an acquaintance that Ki Cheol-min was going to meet appeared.
“Hey, Ki Chul-min!”
The man who appeared as he wandered around said his name was Song Si-gun.
Shi-gun Song, who had hit Ki Chul-min on the back with a puck, loudly said, giggling.
“You acted as if it wasn’t going to come out, but did it come out anyway? It seems like money is a pity?”
It was an unpleasant tone, but to his surprise, Ki Chul-min smiled condescendingly.
“You know my plight. It’s me, thank you for calling me from the raid.”
“Yeah, well thought out. Opportunities like this are rare. Because it’s me, I’m thinking of you and calling you. If it’s like someone else, it’s okay.”
“I know. Thank you, hey. I’ll buy you a drink after work.”
At Ki Chul-min’s polite words, Song Si-gun waved his hand.
“Ugh, I forgot the liver of the fleas. How can I get you to drink alcohol? Besides, my mouth is luxurious. I only drink liquor.
Song Si-gun was very cheeky as his name suggests.
Ki Cheol-min seemed to be okay with making a scratching sound from the inside out all the time.
After all, like Jeong Dae-sik, it was clear that he was a tribe that could leave out both the liver and the gallbladder for profit.
Ki Chul-min decided to enter the temporary crew position he had offered, and introduced Jeong Dae-sik.
“This is Jeong Dae-sik.”
Song Si-gun looked at Jeong Dae-sik from head to toe once.
Information about Jeong Dae-sik ended there.
He must have judged that he was a worthless person when he saw wearing cheap reinforced aluminum equipment.
Jeong Dae-sik said, “It’s nice to meet you,” and nodded his head, but he kept his chin up and pretended not to listen.
“Oh, yes. Nice to meet you.”
Although his attitude was quite unpleasant, I didn’t think it was wrong.
The first criterion for judging someone is their appearance.
Jeong Dae-sik was no different in that regard.
Even if Jeong Dae-shik was a member of a well-known raid, he would have looked down on a low-level hunter who could roam around like suljapat.
On the other hand, there was also a subtle confidence on the other side of the mind that did not care much about Song Si-gun’s attitude.
At first glance, it seems that there is nothing to see, but Jeong Dae-sik’s skills are no longer inferior.
He already has three types of abilities, and can handle almost all positions.
Just looking at the grades, it was more than 7th grade… No, even 6th grade was not inferior to it.
I was confident enough.
Ki Cheol-min saw Song Si-gun even though Jeong Dae-sik didn’t ask and continued.
“If there are still seats left, how about taking this person with you?”
“Hmm… I don’t know about that.”
“Isn’t there a shortage of dealers anyway? Normally, dealers are overflowing, but now everyone is busy with Monster Break. They must have already wiped out all the useful ones from other raids?”
“You’re going through my recommendations, right? But it’s difficult because I don’t know my skills.”
“If it’s a skill, I guarantee it. Didn’t you hear about the S23 dungeon yesterday? You said you caught three Cerberus. Three.”
Song Si-gun looked a little startled, but he tried to erase that sign.
And he bluffed, “It’s worth catching Cerberus.”
However, he shrugged his shoulders and said that Ki Cheol-min strongly recommended it and that it was true that there were not enough people.
“Let’s talk to our team leader first.”
He left for a while.
In the absence of Song Si-gun, Jeong Dae-sik said to Ki Cheol-min.
“I never really asked for a recommendation.”
At that, Ki Chul-min smiled.
He had a very peculiar smile.
His eyes were curved like a hahoe mask, and he looked like a villain in some way.
“It wasn’t even free.”
“I gave you the bridge, so you have to pay a fee. How about 10% of your income?”
Jeong Dae-sik was disgusted.
“It’s nonsense! What commission are you going to get 10% of?”
“Huh, aren’t you a porter? Isn’t the brokerage commission also 10%?”
“Is that and this the same?”
“Don’t hate it.”
Ki Chul-min was sassy.
Jeong Dae-sik was conflicted.
Kick Ki Chul-min’s offer here and find another raid?
However, the other raids had already finished recruiting dealers and generally left.
Jeong Dae-sik, who had no connection with any raid, seemed too late to seize the opportunity.
Only small and medium-sized raids still remained, and most of them were new, lacking in number, or lacking in equipment at a glance.
That’s why they haven’t been able to find dealers yet, and they’re wandering around.
The conditions they offered for such an attack would have been poor.
Obviously, there was a high possibility that it was a daily wage system, or that even if distribution was made, it would not be possible to pay properly.
At that time, Ki Cheol-min twisted his lips and said sarcastically.
“By the way, the raid I’m going to is one of the top 30 raids nationwide. Zodiac, have you ever heard of it?”
When it comes to the Zodiac, Jeong Dae-sik was famous enough to know the name of the raid.
It is a large corporate-type raid with twelve teams.
It is also a place that is famous for eating dealers, but he went on a lot of hunting and achieved many achievements.
In particular, Zodiac’s Chief of Engineers was one of those who obtained the most powerful weapon since the beginning of the extended reality world.
Although not currently active duty, the weapon still belonged to him.
It was also said that he was that strong.
In any case, the word zodiac struck me.
Jeong Dae-sik changed his face and said with a bright color.
“It’s 5%. No more.”
“…Yeah, well. Okay.”
Ki Cheol-min accepted Jeong Dae-sik’s words, and after waiting for a while, Song Si-gun returned.
And he said to both of them with a chin.
“Come here, our team leader will see you.”
