– Volume 4 Episode 14
It was something I had never done before, so I was curious about various things.
Jeong Dae-sik blatantly asked a question.
“Isn’t this enough to make money?”
There was no way he could do such a dangerous job simply for fun.
Wandering around such an unknown dungeon alone is risky, no matter how talented you are.
However, seeing what he was doing, he was sure to be paid a fair price for it.
Dongil Na shrugged his shoulders.
“If you get 10 million views on YouTube, the advertising cost is cheap. Besides, there are a lot of people who support it. When all the pennies spent by each viewer are collected, it’s quite big.”
Looking back, the armor Na Dong-il was wearing looked unusual.
It must have been that it wasn’t something you usually see at the arms store.
Just by looking at it, it was easy to guess that his income was substantial.
‘There was a way to make money that way.’
Jeong Dae-sik pondered for a moment if he could imitate himself.
However, scenes of just hunting were circulated on YouTube a lot.
Perhaps the reason why Na Dong-il is popular is because of the advantage of being able to show real-time hunting scenes.
Thinking that it was not something that could be imitated, Jeong Dae-sik quickly gave up his interest.
“By the way, did you come into this dungeon to hunt?”
“Why are you asking that?”
Na Dong-il shrugged as Kim Si-on frowned and asked a question.
“Well, it’s kind of weird. I’ve been walking around for hours already, but I haven’t seen any monsters.”
“It’s the same with us.”
“Thanks to you, today’s broadcast was completely stopped. In the meantime, I’m glad I met you all.”
“Why are you so lucky to have met us? As long as you weren’t in any danger.”
“Because walking around with a group is more fun than walking around alone, right?”
“I never said I’d go out with you, did I?”
Na Dong-il immediately proposed to Kim Si-on with a cold expression.
“I’m not asking you to go for free. I’m making a formal request.”
“If you accompany me today, I will pay the appropriate compensation. You don’t have to worry about me. Just let me follow you.”
“I’m sorry, but we don’t sign contracts that way. We didn’t come here today for hunting purposes. We came here for a pre-examination with another contract, so it’s not going to be as exciting as you’d expect it to be.”
“It doesn’t matter if it’s not hunting.”
“As I said, I can’t decide as I want because I’m carrying out other quests. If you’re a shipwreck, I don’t know. But seeing that you came in here alone, you might be able to go back. No monsters appear.”
At Kim Si-on’s stubborn attitude, Na Dong-il touched his chin.
“Hmm, then how about giving me some information?”
“It will depend on what kind of information it is.”
“Information about the hunter who succeeded in capturing this dungeon.”
Kim Si-on paused.
Unless you know what kind of place this dungeon is, the information about the hunter that Na Dong-il knew could be important.
However, it was also a story that I did not need to know because I had already heard of the preliminary survey.
Kim Si-on thought about it for a moment, but then moved his lips together as if he was about to say no.
Reading the hint, Na Dong-il opened his mouth first.
“I’m talking for you, but you better listen.”
Kim Si-on was silent.
Seeing her like that, Na Dong-il shuddered.
“Actually, it’s a story that won’t hurt you. It’s just a matter of allowing me to accompany you. I will never interfere or ask for help.”
Kim Si-on sighed briefly.
“Okay. Tell me what information it is.”
Na Dong-il stuck out his tongue and moistened his lips.
“That hunter is Yang Woo-taek, who is called the Black Hand.”
“Yeah? By the way?”
When Kim Si-on crossed his arms in the way that it cannot be called information by itself, Na Dong-il hurriedly continued.
“It is known that the magic stones Yang Woo-taek sold after entering and leaving this dungeon are blue. Perhaps the Titan Raid also came here based on the information that blue stones came out. It is said that it was not obtained from . It was a magic stone obtained in another dungeon in the past, and the one obtained here was of a different color.”
“What exactly do you want to talk about? Come on, tell me.”
At Kim Si-on’s urging, Na Dong-il worked hard like a storyteller.
“It is said that… it was purple.”
The color and transparency of the magic crystal depend on the concentration of magical power contained in it.
And it was determined by the difficulty of the dungeon, that is, which monsters lurk.
In dungeons with common magic stones such as yellow and red, no matter how difficult it is, they stay at the 7th or 8th grade level.
You must have a level 6 or higher monster for Blue Stone to appear.
Purple Stone is, of course, grade 5 or higher.
The horse is a level 5, but the fact that it is a level 5 monster means that it takes three level 5 hunters to be strong enough to defeat it.
This number is the minimum and usually counts as five.
This is because, although there must be five players, it becomes the most basic form of raid: tanks, close deals, one deals, buffers, and healers.
Therefore, if there are 5th grade monsters lurking here, it was something the expedition team had to be extremely careful about.
They were in a state of being composed of a minimum number of people for a preliminary investigation.
There was only one level 5 hunter, Kim Si-on, and her abilities were focused on command rather than battle, so in case of an emergency, only three people could fight.
Dae-sik Jeong, Gang-doo So, and Cheol-min Ki.
I don’t know what kind of ability the best of the One-Eyed Troops have, but their attack power didn’t seem that strong.
If she and Na Dong-il are included, it means that the number of non-combat personnel exceeds half.
When a level 5 monster appeared, the possibility of annihilation was very high.
Considering those points, Kim Si-on fell into trouble.
He must have been at odds as to whether he should give up on the field trip and return.
However, they have not met a single monster so far.
In addition to preserving the power intact, Jeong Dae-sik has the ability to detect monsters, so he would have been able to run away.
Kim Si-on made his decision and said.
“As I said before, our goal is not to hunt. Even if we encounter a level 5 monster, we can avoid it. A level 5 monster is most likely a boss mob in this dungeon. Actually, it’s our job to see what monsters we’re likely to encounter during this mission, so we’ll keep exploring until we find anything.”
The expedition team, including Dongil Na, resumed their mission.
They were walking while maintaining their formation, but Na Dong-il, who was walking in the rear alongside Kim Si-on, was very noisy.
It was also due to the resumption of broadcasting.
“Everyone! I’m back! Yes, yes. The story got a little long because I was traveling with them. Let me introduce it formally. This is the hunter in charge of the Foreign Legion of the Titan Raid! This is Kim Si-on. Kim Si-on, wait Can you see me here?”
“Yes, yes. Are you a reticent person? As I joined these people with difficulty, it shouldn’t be a hindrance? It would be nice if you could say a few words, but I think it’s overly greedy. Please be satisfied with what I introduce instead. Yes? Ah, yes , yes. Are you a beauty? I think so too.”
Na Dong-il continued the broadcast by reacting without a break even by himself.
I wanted to tell him to shut up as he might attract monsters because of his noisy chatter, but unfortunately there were still no monsters coming out.
Even if I focused my mind, there were no monsters caught in the extension of my attention.
Even with the mapping, there is only a swamp with no special features, but it spreads endlessly…….
While the drone was mapping, the rested crews stood there blankly.
It was only Na Dong who was enthusiastic.
He roamed through the crew, trying to interview them.
Kim Si-on ignored it, Ki Cheol-min pretended to be busy, and Heo Mi-rae shyly avoided it, but So Gang-doo responded very positively.
“Wahaha! It’s not that strange of a skill. Werewolves and wearbears are common. Werefox? That’s rare. I’ve only seen it once, but it was a woman. I’ve never seen a Weretaur like me. There is also a Wear Lizard in the Americas, but I don’t know.”
“Wear Lizard. So, are you transforming into a lizard?”
“I heard you say that you transform into a crocodile?”
“It’s strange that you transform no matter what you do. Can I see you once?”
“Uh huh, it has to be out of combat. Transformation is basically the use of magic. Of course, the transformation itself doesn’t consume that much magic power, but it shouldn’t be wasted.”
“That’s right. Ummm……”
Na Dong-il looked around to see if there was anything else to broadcast, and approached Choi Choi, who was sitting there holding a hologram tab.
“Everyone, can you see? The holographic map is getting bigger? The drone that just flew is observing the topographic features of the area and sending that information. This tab creates a 3D map based on that information. Now this Are the twinkling lights a drone?”
When Na Dong-il spoke to Choi Sun-eun, she shook her head in amazement.
Na Dong-il, who used to talk to Ki Cheol-min without hesitation, was embarrassed and backed away.
Choeun had long straight hair hanging down to her waist and covered her eyes with long bangs.
That alone was quite a gloomy impression, but he hadn’t said a single word until now.
Just standing still pushes people around, so Na Dong-il gave up talking to her and approached Jeong Dae-sik.
“This guy… is a ranged dealer because he’s got an automatic rifle? Ah! The Foreign Legion of the Titan Raid is famous for having each member play multiple positions. Do you also have a position? May I ask what position you are in?”
Instead of answering, Jeong Dae-sik just shrugged his shoulders.
Then Na Dong-il said, “Are you serious? Buffer?” As she was chatting, she was suddenly startled and her eyes widened.
“Wait! Have you ever been active in S23D before? Have you ever caught several Cerberus?”
Jeong Dae-sik nodded, wondering if the story was still floating around.
“By the way?”
Hearing his answer, Dongil Na clapped.
“Aren’t you that reputed porter-turned-hunter? Triple List Daesik Jeong! You’ve been quiet lately, but you’re in the Titan raid! Hey, great!”
