Chapter 344 A special hell for you (3)
Kazat didn’t say anything and just lay face down in front of Hyunmoo.
“It’s okay. It was kind of ‘at work’. People would be surprised if the DJ suddenly left. And it wasn’t urgent.”
Hyunmoo was so ridiculous that he didn’t even feel like arguing.
“By the way, since when have you been doing that? Did you suddenly open your eyes to a talent for music?”
Kazat rolled his eyes and went on to make a long excuse.
It was an excuse as if it was just following the stream of consciousness whether it made sense or not, but in conclusion, it was a journey started to find the race name of the ratman.
“…Djing to find the rhyme of spells, harmony of words, and hidden languages between words…?”
“Yes, great man. Songs, poems, and spells are deeply interrelated, and I’m trying to find the lost name of our people…”
“Can’t we just build it properly as a Skaven?”
“No plagiarism. Great man.”
“Then, if I had DJed for another 30 seconds, would I have been able to find the race name?”
Although it was difficult for Hyunmoo to believe this absurd excuse, he was well aware of Kazat’s obsession with ‘finding a tribe’.
The reason Kazat began to be loyal to Hyunmoo was to find the name of his tribe, and Hyunmoo, who could not fulfill that purpose, decided to understand his circumstances a little.
“Okay. Please understand.”
“I don’t know how to put myself in the same generosity as Ha Hae.”
Kazat lay flat on the floor again.
‘It would be good emotionally to have at least one hobby.’
It was also positive for Hyunmoo that his family, who knew nothing but slaughter, had a hobby one by one.
Hahyun is art, Kirson is a luxury collector, Yerdan is cooking, and Kazat is music.
“Anyway, I’m calling you this way… Hmm. It may not be a big deal, but just in case. I recently heard a strange story through Lee Ji-tae…”
Hyunmoo also told the net what he had heard from Lee Ji-tae.
If Chrome was watching the bright side, the ‘Demon King’ Kazat and his minions looked into the dark corners where human eyes could not reach.
Kazat monitors an uninhabited area bustling with monsters, and Ha-hyeon uses a network of shadows to gather information.
Yerdan is well versed in the circumstances of the underworld, and Kirson appears anytime and anywhere to obtain information through torture and intelligence.
“Did you hear everything? Did you understand?”
Hearing Hyunmoo’s story, Kazat tilted his head. Not only Kazat, but Kirson, Yerdan, and Hahyun had similar expressions.
“So you’re not talking about the sign of the conquering star?”
“Yeah. That’s right.”
Then, Hahyun carefully opened her mouth.
“…if that’s the case, did you already know that?”
The old man continued his muttering spells with his arms wide open.
As the spell continued, through the retreated space, soldiers in iron armor walked out in a row, as if they were coming out of mud.
In the helmets of the soldiers, only the burning eyes were visible, and everything else was darkness.
In the once-quiet forest in the backcountry, it was hard to find traces of life as it was cut down and scorched.
The serene valley was now being used as a passage for the conquering stellar forces to enter.
The old man, who had been ordering for a long time, breathed in his breath as if exhausted.
Maintaining the passage was not an easy task.On the other side, the Conquering Star, he was actively helping to maintain the passage, but there was only one old man on this side. It was natural to be tired.
One of the soldiers approached with a rattling sound.
The soldier was about the same height as an old man, and was on the small side for an army of conquering stars. However, these were the lowest ranks.
Most of them took charge of errands such as reconnaissance, policing, and supply of the territory to be conquered.
“The 8th supply ended with this.”
The old man wiped his sweat and looked around.
A huge amount of crystal moss, crystal stones, and rare minerals that are difficult to obtain were lined up.
Although the number of soldiers was not great, they were all low-ranking families who were sent to carry loads.
The old man alone had the limit to create a passage for some of the lower-ranking families to pass through.
‘… … That’s why we need Ardan’s help and preliminary work.’
The lower ranks built an altar to maintain the passage and stockpiled the necessary materials.
Its purpose was to deploy its power as quickly as possible before the enemies of this world noticed it.
They had to plant spies and prepare enough bases.
The most important thing was the ‘blacksmith’.
The old man’s eyes turned to one side.
The abandoned hunter’s hut had now been turned into a scorching furnace. It was the most basic form of a forge.
“How complete is it?”
“We can start working from today.”
When the ‘blacksmith’ is prepared, the level of the lower ranks will also rise at once.
In addition, even if the passage is not completely pioneered, if there is a forge, it can be transformed into a higher class.
A forge was essential to creating a higher clan, so when a conquering star went to war, he would build as many forges as possible on the territory.
“You’re progressing faster than I thought.”
“In a world of this level, it is important to quickly create a higher class family. The level of this world is still insignificant. Even if only a centurion-level can be created, conquering a country would be simple.”
The soldier continued speaking in silence.
“Once you start to rule the country, you can expand the forge with the resources and slaves you get from it. If everything goes as planned, the conquest will be over within half a year.
The conquering star appears directly.
Not an agent, but a body he created himself.
If that happens, the game is over.
Stars have the power to change the world around them just by being there.
There is absolutely no way to do this if you are playing a game.
Because the stars can manifest their will on this earth only through their agents and their apostles.
But the game was messed up, and the judge, the priest, had opened the back door.
The conquering star is the conqueror who has already united the star. Breaking down this peace-soaked land was a piece of cake.
At that point, other priests who are now hiding somewhere in this world may appear.
Beyond simple revenge, he himself becomes the founder of the new Crown of Thorns Society.
Then the soldier opened his mouth.
“And the supply is no longer there.”
“The resources here alone are sufficient to run the conquest for half a year. From tomorrow onwards, we will focus on recruiting soldiers rather than supply.”
“Considering the efficiency, didn’t I say that it is much better to evolve the soldiers into a blacksmith?”
“I thought so. However, compared to the resources we have stored, the defense capabilities here are too low. It is important to secure a base safely right away. From tomorrow, we will call in elite soldiers.
The old man nodded his head while wheezing.
Simply bringing in supplies and passing a powerful entity through them were completely different things.
He had no choice but to convince the old man that even if he summoned only ten elites in a day, the old man would be exhausted.
And if he was judged by Ardan, the conquering star, and no one else, he must obey his judgment. Because the person who is good at tactics is not himself, but Ardan.
“And the spies you planted in other countries…”
It was then.
The soldier’s head shuddered with the sound of ‘Kwajik’.
However, it did not stop there, and the sound of the tearing metal resounded resounded, and the entire body of the soldier began to be compressed into a long, flat shape.
The old man stared blankly at the soldier, who was instantly transformed into the size of a chopstick. And right away he screamed in astonishment.
“Adam Fort! It’s Adam Fort! The arm of the beast has appeared!”
Ardan looked down at the soldiers who had finished lining up.
In front of the long, narrow dimensional rift that the priest had drilled, elite soldiers of the division level were lined up.
Beyond simply trained soldiers, siege machines and steel monsters were waiting.
They were powerful beings beyond the priest’s ability.
‘Perhaps he will be ripped to pieces.’
Anyway, if the altar is completed tomorrow, there will be no need for a priest anyway.
The death of the priest does not immediately close the hole. The altar will take your place and ensure stability.
Ardan did not like his priests from the beginning.
He liked to increase the territories to be conquered, but he did not like the fact that it was more fair and imposed such restrictions.
‘And above all else, for the most efficient war, it is natural to put maximum power in the shortest period of time.’
Even if there were no personal feelings, this was natural.
The priest’s plan is too time consuming. In the meantime, if the enemy notices and attacks, it will only become difficult.
That was the reason why he deliberately poured a lot of supplies instead of troops.
If it is the case, it is correct to send in troops first, then supply supplies.
However, this time, he was planning to pour in an inexpensive supply first, and then pour a powerful force at once to pass through the rift.
Even if the priest was torn to pieces in the midst of this, it was desirable to pour out as many troops as possible at once so that the enemy did not even prepare to respond.
‘one month. Conquer the world over there… … .’
Ardan felt a strange sense of incongruity for a moment.
It was the last word of a lower-ranking family when they were dying.
He was a very insignificant sensation to him, but the problem was that it had been felt just beyond that rift.
Adam Fort was annoyed by the voices behind his back. However, as the voice instructed, he grabbed the soldier hiding in the bush on the right and crushed it.
The iron-clad soldier just about to throw a spear collapsed to the size of a can and fell to the floor.
Adam looked behind him and said.
“Don’t call me by that name.”
Hyunmoo, with his hand in his pocket behind his back, approached with a grin.
“But Yu-min is not allowed to own a dog.”
“What’s that got to do with it?”
“When I had a dog, I was going to give him the name Rhenian and make him feel good.”
Adam had no idea what it meant to give people a dog name just because they couldn’t have a dog. Did he even have a dog named Lenny Ann when he was young?
But no matter how temper he was, he had never seen Kang Hyunmoo corrected, so he decided to ignore him as usual.
“What is it? I hated the necklace I bought last time, what kind of dog collar is this, and I wore it well. Did you really like it?”Around Adam’s neck was a gold choker adorned with a Middle Eastern style.
Instead of answering, she quickly crushed another soldier in sight.
Adam looked at Hyunmoo, who had bent the elongated armored soldier into a round shape, and answered.
“Would you like me to fill you up with a choker too?”
“…No, it’s okay.”
Similar battles continued throughout the forest.
Crom and the Hunters belonging to the Almighty Alliance quickly moved along the ridge to form a siege network and unilaterally pushed Ardan’s soldiers.
“It’s too easy than I thought. Isn’t that a trap?”
“It’s not easy, it’s made ‘easy’.”
Ardan is a conqueror. He was, of course, also a skilled tactician.
He has deployed scouts and watchers from a distance of several kilometers to monitor enemy intrusions and build defenses.
The only problem he had with him was that he overestimated his enemies.
It was because he wasn’t the only ‘human’ he had.
Kazat, Hahyun, Kirson, and Yerdan were already watching and monitoring the fleeing priest.
So, he was able to identify the guards early and as soon as the attack started, he was able to get rid of the guards in an instant.
Adam Fort’s gaze turned to one side.
A goblin, carrying her iron helm loosely, came into her sight. Unconsciously trying to attack the enemy, she managed to stop.
The goblin ran unhindered at one of her soldiers and opened another cap.
“…it’s hard to distinguish and attack monsters.”
“You’ll have to get used to it. Kazat makes attacking easier.”
Hunters did not understand the fact that they had to attack together with the ‘Demon King’ Kazat’s family.
I couldn’t figure out why monsters cooperated with humans, and even fought against the same monster.
However, I was able to convince him with the simple excuse of ‘zone fight’.
It has been a common occurrence in human history.
‘But it’s probably not that simple.’
Adam Fort looked at Kang Hyunmoo.
It was already an open secret among those in power that Kang Hyunmoo had a strange relationship with the ‘Demon King’ Kazat.
In fact, it was a rumor that there was a relationship between the ruler and the ruled, but Kang Hyunmoo neither denied nor confirmed it.
And this non-secret secret made Kang Hyunmoo’s invisible power more solid.
‘I don’t know how to take this… … .’
Maria and Kang Hyunmoo were strong people opposite each other.
Maria was strong in her mind, but weak in her body.
Kang Hyunmoo had no one to break with his strength, but it was true that he felt mentally and morally uneasy.
Nevertheless, the two had some similarities.
In particular, the fact that he was not afraid of Adam Fort and believed he could rule was exactly the same.
And Adam was weak against that type.
‘… … You don’t have a choice.’
If Adam doesn’t depend on someone, he feels the beast in his head swell.
She needed someone to pull her leash to some extent.
It was in the midst of annihilating Ardan’s army by deploying the forces of the ‘Demon King’ Kazat, Almighty Ryeon, and Chrome’s abilities all at once.
A sudden roar resounded from the final destination, the hunter’s hut. At the same time, three of the soldiers began to burn greatly at once.
Hyunmoo looked at it and muttered.
