– Volume 12 Episode 21
Jeong Dae-sik blinked quickly. I didn’t know that being at max level would lead to such a result.
Then I suddenly remembered the story of the Arabian Nights. In Disney’s Aladdin movie, an omniscient Genie who grants three wishes appears.
However, the Genie is subordinate to the lamp and tells Aladdin to set him free as long as his last wish is enough. And Aladdin sets him free.
Thinking it was like that story, Jeong Dae-sik laughed a little disappointedly.
“Then are you completely free now?”
“Then you are no longer my assistant.”
“It will happen.”
Jeong Dae-sik paused for a moment.
“Yeah… Now that I’ve been locked up in the sensible system for a long time, I can enjoy my freedom now. But…”
“Don’t worry. I will be on Jeong Dae-sik’s side until the final war is over.”
Jeong Dae-sik nodded, saying that was it. After all, since you’ve reached max level, you won’t need a helper any more.
Unlike before, Jeong Dae-sik was able to see through the whole system without having to ask entropy a question or browse the store. And he had acquired all the abilities that were there.
There is nothing more to acquire and sleep with new skills.
His physical condition and all his skills were all at MAX.
He had mastered all of the sensible system and was in full possession of it. Then he could finally understand what the uncomfortable feeling he felt after the upgrade.
‘That’s right, I can’t be called a human anymore.’
He was too perfect to be human.
Jeong Dae-sik wondered if he could grow old, get sick, or die.
But that was a later matter.
Now there was a time when he had to take it down.
However, Jeong Dae-sik did not know what time it was.
Upgrading to max level was different from before. At level 9, even in the readjusted state, some of his consciousness remained and he was able to observe the situation outside, but at level 10 he was completely unconscious.
Maybe it was because of the adjustment of the body as well as the mind, so it was completely blacked out, and I only thought vaguely that quite a bit of time had passed.
Not knowing how much time had passed, I wondered if I had missed it.
Jeong Dae-sik, who came out of the panic room, questioned how the situation was going. Then, very naturally, I understood what was going on.
He could see through even what was happening on the other side of the globe if he wanted to. It happened simply by asking a question.
It wasn’t the only time I was just admiring. When I saw that the situation was urgent, I did not feel guilty about it.
However, it was essential to reach max level to defeat them, and fortunately, thanks to the support of Si-min Song, Cheol-min Ki, Pil-doo Kwang, and Hee-hee Choi and all the Awakeneds, the enormous loss of life was prevented.
Of course, it was difficult to find any shape in Seoul except for Jongno and the foot of Bukhansan.
But the city needs to be rebuilt. If this war was won, the rest didn’t matter. And the final war is not over yet.
Jeong Dae-shik said so and looked into the air for a moment. Then he looked back at Ki Chul-min and Gwang Pil-doo and said,
“Now, the two of you, run away. Entropy has defeated Nemesis, so there will be no problem in evacuating.”
Ki Chul-min suddenly asked, as if he were talking about something.
“Avoid it? Wasn’t it all over? Did you say that you defeated all five giants?”
Then Gwangpil-du, who had been standing still the whole time, spoke a word.
“It must be that there are other enemies other than the 5 Great Giants. A more powerful enemy that we cannot dare to face.”
“Yes. As you all know, monsters do not cooperate with each other. But the 5th colossus did a pincer attack. What do you think is the reason?”
At that moment, Ki Cheol-min felt like he had been hit in the head and shouted.
“Because a stronger one is controlling them…!”
“Yes. The real enemy is coming.”
The air suddenly trembled sharply, as if to prove what Daesik was saying.
Soon, the damn world darkened in an instant, and the sky split in two.
To be precise, the space was divided, and a great fear flooded in.
Even after being told to avoid, Ki Chul-min and Gwang Pil-doo were unable to move.
There was no sound, but a fear incomparable to when they heard the pier of the 5th colossus tore their conversations apart.
After Jeong Dae-sik said those words, the two of them trembled. And at the words of Daesik Jeong, he turned away without saying anything.
“I’ll stop this guy, but I don’t know how far the aftermath of the battle will spread. So you guys have to stop it. Go! Go and protect the people!”
Gwangpil-doo also nodded once, and they quickly kicked into the air.
Jeong Dae-sik, who remained in his place, watched the ominous beings squirming and pouring out from the cracked air. She then glanced at her side and said.
“I never thought that the person by my side in the final war would be you, Entropy.”
“I was originally a member of the Hyeonjil system. It is natural to be with Jeong Dae-sik until the very end.”
“You can step out if you want.”
“No. Aren’t you bored by yourself?”
Entropy smiled and said so, and Jeong Dae-sik laughed. However, when the being that ripped through the air slowly began to reveal itself, he couldn’t smile any more.
It was huge indeed.
The energy emanating from it covered the entire sky, and the world became a dark heaven in an instant.
Its feet ravaged the land just by stepping on the ground, and polluted the land with a poison that could not be compared with radioactive or other deadly harmful substances.
Its eyes were a fiery hell, and its mouth was a black hole and an abyss that swallowed something endlessly.
Dust with a stench like a rotting nose spurted out from the gnome, and rotten monsters like maggots dripped down from his body.
Undead or not, those monsters of unknown shape were crawling out of its limbs.
He was a man who seemed to see the end of despair by his very existence.
Jeong Dae-sik, who achieved the max level, was able to see through the information about the gnome.
The guy didn’t have a name.
It was originally a scum floating in a corner of the darkness of the universe. Then there was only one thing he had, ‘desire’.
An excruciating thirst and a constant desire to have something gave birth to him and kept him alive.
As a result, the gnome wandered through the universe, swallowing everything it could swallow, growing bigger and bigger, and gaining unspeakable powers, increasing its strength.
However, he was never satisfied with his greed itself, and eventually became a disaster that devoured countless worlds.
Eventually, it evolved into destruction, becoming a being that destroys everything it touches.
Some have called it ‘the devil’ or ‘god’.
Fortunately or not, there were other gods in the universe besides him.
But no one has ever had as much greed as him.
So the gods had to find a way to stop him.
They found the answer in ‘The Last War’.
It was to give new abilities to the major races in the world to come, and to prepare for the final war by opening up an extended reality world.
That attempt was never successful.
Whenever an attempt failed, part of the race created and preserved a virtual world called a dungeon. and incorporated into the extended reality world.
In this way, the universe has been repeating the final war for an unfathomably long period of time.
Countless dimensions were closed and the world was destroyed.
In the meantime, he, that is, he grew stronger and stronger.
The more he did, the greater his greed grew, and at some point, a new evolution occurred.
A new self appeared inside the man who had nothing but greed.
It was the price that followed greed.
The one who called himself Democristo was born out of perdition, but was a completely different being.
It was born to destroy him.
Democritus found a new way to defeat him in the final war.
That was the sensible system.
Not all stellar systems were alike. The system changed its form depending on where the world was.
Because this is the earth and Jeong Dae-sik was a human, he only borrowed the form of Hyeon-jil.
The same is true for being the god of wealth, greed, and price. Jeong Dae-sik, a human being, was only explained in an easy-to-understand manner.
Jeong Dae-sik found out all about it in an instant. Because it was information he already knew.
Then, naturally, I came to know what it means to achieve max level in the Hyeonji system.
With a human body, he reached a point that was unattainable as a human being.
He was perfect, and that meant he became a god.
The goal of the Hyeonjil system was to create a god who could oppose the gods.
Following his realization, Magjeon also started the final evolution.
Goddess-level weapons have finally evolved into new-grade weapons.
It was known that there was no power higher than the original goddess level, but it was a myth.
When God deals with it, the weapon will naturally have divine-level power.
Magjeon ended its lifespan during its final evolution.
It was only once that the weapon could carry the power of the gods.
It destroys God.
Magjeon abandoned its form and became ‘power’ itself.
That power soared into the sky.
It became a huge pillar of light.
It was an overwhelming flow of power that penetrated the universe.
In order to rule it, Jeong Dae-sik had to become a whole body (divine body).
It was because he could not wield the power of that god in his human state.
To do that, he had to abandon the human.
Jeong Dae-sik hesitated in front of that huge fact.
‘Are you going to become a god? I? You mean you’re not human?’
When I first received the ability and became an Awakened, I never imagined such a situation. He only thought of becoming rich, eating well and living well. That’s what got him here, so he’s supposed to be a god?
As a human being Jeong Dae-shik, it was a very embarrassing situation.
He wondered if he could become a human again once he had awakened as a god.
