Chapter 449 00449 The Last Fortress.
And I knew the purpose.
The Great War.
Under different beliefs, the wars that followed decades of continental domination left each other with only major injuries and extreme damage.
Will you defend or reclaim?
That’s why we might not be able to back off.
Tra nsla t e d b y jpm tl .co m And…
The ultimate battle in a mountain range where humans and dragons took great pains at the end of a long, long war.
After descending the hill, I lost my words in the fortress before my eyes. This fortress was literally the last fortress humans built before the final battle.
What can we say?
When I looked up, I couldn’t see the detail because there was a lot of fog.
However, when I came down from the hill and saw it in front of my eyes, I could feel the difference. The size of the fortress that appeared hazy was truly enormous. I don’t think I can penetrate any medieval army. This is what the obsidian is used for.
“I didn’t think you’d find it as soon as you took it out. ”
“It took me almost a week to find it. ” Tr a n s l a t ed b y jp ｍtl .ｃ o ｍ
When I turned around calmly, I saw that Heo Junyoung and Charming were talking a lot. The same was true of the rest of the clan. We were just looking at each other because we were talking about the fortress or away from each other. I clapped a couple of times to focus my attention.
“Now…. Now that you’ve found the ruins, it’s time to go digging. ”
“Heh. You’re going in right now? ”
In fact, the main purpose is to rescue Ahn Hyun, not excavation. So I made a small joke that means I’m digging up Ahn Hyun, but no one is responding. I was positive, feeling a little sad.
“Yes. There’s no need to stall. We need to find the bridge first. ”
Vivian tilts her head. Seeing Seon Yoon give me a rough explanation, I turned my gaze to the fort. Then he starts walking quietly towards the keep.
A good fortress is often built on strategic points of view, with a natural wide field of view.
However, the facility named after this last fortress is different. On the contrary, he holds his place down and stands behind a huge mountain.
I don’t know why I built it like this, but I thought maybe it was a drainage camp.
“By the way, these mountains are really Jing ~. I’ve been through so much, but now I have to explore the ruins again… Phew, really. ”
“Hehe. Cheer up. We’re here to rescue him. And you know what? This is where a performance bread dagger comes out. ”
I felt the tone of the tone of the well bored and Hannah’s comforting voice followed, and my feet fell off.
T ra n s lat e d by jp mt l .ｃ o ｍ Looking down quietly, you see a hole dug deep enough to cover almost 10 meters. Seeing the long way along the wall, it looks like the moat was meant to prevent enemy intrusion.
Directly in front of the moat is a fortress wall that looks well beyond 15 meters. There was also a circular tower at the end of the wall, and it seemed to have a double structure that separated both inside and out from the wall behind the tower.
The height and structure of the walls were enormous, but I was amazed at the fact that they remained this way after so many years.
Suddenly, I was greedy. Because if you can understand the construction design of this fortress, you might be able to raise Maggia’s defensive strength even further to open within the year. Oh, it’s a magical city anyway. What’s the big deal?
“Oh, my God, the fog is so heavy. It doesn’t look so cool… ”
“Of course. ”
Unclear voices. The clan member grumbling in this thick voice would be the new dragon, and the clan member who responded with a short, low voice was definitely lucky.
“It used to be foggy, but it wasn’t like this… I feel a little weird, too. Clan Road. Be careful… Miss Ansol?”
New Jae Ryong, who was giving advice with his tongue three or four times, suddenly stopped speaking. As I turn around to see what’s going on, I don’t know why, but I see a white anvil.
“Miss Ansol? Miss Ansol! ”
“… Huh? Yes, yes! ”
“Is there something wrong? My face is white… ”
“Oh, no. It’s okay, we’re good. I just suddenly felt weird…. ”
I took a step without delay. Knowing Ansol’s user information or abilities, I tend to think about it every time I get a reaction like that.
“Come on. I feel good.”
Tr an sla t e d by jpm tl .c o m I felt the clan’s gaze shifting as I approached it. Ansol shakes Dory’s head and smiles. I laughed a lot.
“Oh, no. I’m fine.”
“Tell me, it’s okay. ”
“Just…. My heart ached and I suddenly felt sad…. It’s not that weird. I’m sorry I bothered you. ”
“… hmm. Got it.”
A message asking you not to ask any more.
Ansol’s face looks very confused. I can’t tell if I’ve been hanging back here. I nodded my head and moved to the front. Then I waited for him to calm down and started walking along the walls. So, if we walk, we can find the place where the clergy is.
Finding the bridge didn’t take much longer than I thought. Whether the direction we were walking for the first time was in front of us, we could find an old sewer bridge that had been strung across the sea floor about 10 minutes later. I was worried it might collapse, but after stepping on it, I couldn’t hear a squeak.
“Then, I’ll go inside. ”
Shortly before crossing the bridge, a few clans moved on their own.
Up until now, I have often moved to a flight during combat, but once I and three melee classes remained ahead and priests and wizards entered further. And in case anything pops up inside the ruins, Seonyun, Hannah, has moved to the left and to the right in order to deal with the situation as flexibly as possible. It is because I feel good as the class is an archer.
It was the entrance to a dark and dark castle that welcomed us as we crossed the bridge. As you take a step back, you see an invisible passageway, like an endless tunnel. Turning the Magic Detection to confirm that there are no signs of abnormality, we sent a signal right away, and Hanbyol and New Jaeryong carefully chanted the light spell. As soon as I had a little perspective around me, I took another step.
And I felt an endless silence.
… It’s quiet. It’s too quiet.
‘… This is too weird!’
T ra n s la t ed b y jpｍtl .c oｍ Walking down a dark corridor, I was captivated by unreasonable anxiety. It’s because these ruins looked really dangerous when I stood on the hill with Istanbul.
I mean, did he have an instinctive fear? Didn’t Han So-young summon the Queen’s army first because she felt the same way? And the summoned army vanished without a sound or a rumor.
The sensation that I felt was so intense that I was constantly turning the magic detection to its maximum limit since I got down. But at least until now, nothing is particularly detectable. Like a fortress or an empty interior.
However, I continued to be vigilant, thinking that I didn’t know what else would happen if I went inside.
After a slow walk of five minutes, we found a squeezed door. This is probably why the light was invisible when it entered the entrance.
I was a little doubtful that there was only a door inside the entrance, but I could confirm one fact with the third eye.
‘There are traces of recent openings.’
Technically, the iron door in front of you was not closed. It looks almost closed because it is so thick, but the side of the door and the perimeter of the door frame are subtly misaligned. And the scratch marks on the door frame were clearly indicating that it had been closed more than once recently and then opened.
The needle passes to the neck. It’s been a really long time since I felt nervous. It wasn’t the tension that arose from a lack of skill. It was the tension that no one had hit, not even once or twice, and that it felt like a place that nobody knew anything about.
I calmly calm my mind and touched the cold cold iron door. The door hook seems to be open if you push it like this.
Before pushing on like this, I turned around and saw the clans staring at me with tense expressions. After sending a signal to be careful with the eyes, I slowly empowered my hands.
The iron door begins to open with an unpleasant sound. A beam of light flows through the gap.
As I push hard, the door opens wide with a cracking sound. Along with him, the freezing air comes rushing in, wrapped around your body.
At the same time, the sound of someone pulling on the protest echoes through the hallway, but there is also nothing in sight. It’s just empty as expected.
If there’s one thing unusual about it, it’s that the fog is worse than the outside.
Heo Junyoung stepped forward and looked inside the fort and frowned.
“The fog is unexpectedly very dark. I opened my eyes, but I can’t even see 10 meters… Now I wonder if this is the right fog. ”
I think Shin Jae Ryong said that he felt strange, but I also agreed.
As Heo Jun-young said, my vision is blurry despite my eyesight. The sights inside the fortress were barely visible, not even the ground. It was a misunderstanding whether or not we entered the cloud.
Anyway, this opened the iron door. I glanced inside and took a cautious step.
At that moment, I suddenly felt a peculiar feeling on my toes.
As I looked down at something, I saw things piled up like haze through the mist flowing through the dunes. I bent my waist for a moment and lowered my arm, and soon I caught a faint white wand in my hand.
No, it wasn’t a stick. This is…
As Heo Junyoung said, human bones were clear.
I immediately threw down what I was holding and snapped inside. Every time I stepped forward, I had to hear the groaning from below. In other words, the ground we’re standing on now is covered with countless bones.
The clan members follow behind, moaning as low as they can feel.
I stopped walking again. Did you notice that you were troubled? Many of the clans who were in the lead with me and Heo Junyoung approached.
“With limited vision like this, it might be hard to cope… Soo-hyun Kim, what do you think? ”
“I’m thinking. ”
I replied with a thorough sweep of the surroundings with my third eye and magic detection. Heo Jun-young looked around with me and shook his head as he tasted again.
“This is definitely an odd area. ”
“I think so, too. It gives me goose bumps when I come in… It’s too quiet again. as if something was curling up. ”
“Agreed. The fact that the bones are still in circular shape, but the mist is never thought of as fog, etc. There’s more than one or two strange things. I’ve never seen such an ominous area. ”
“Why don’t you go upstairs and get used to the terrain first, instead of going straight up? ”
‘I’m thinking about it.’
For a moment, I thought I wanted you to shut up without me knowing. But soon, I closed my eyes and calmed my heart.
My nerves became more sensitive than necessary. It’s been a long time since I’ve had doubts, habits, and habits.
It was frustrating in some ways, but the place I was standing in was a place no one knew about. Due to the nature of the Hall Plain, which will kill you if you miss it, tapping and crossing the stone bridge was an essential choice to increase your survival rate.
“Let’s go up to the high ground first… ”
“More than that…. Why don’t you just go inside? ”
Vivian sneaks in, thinking about everything she said quietly. When he opened his eyes, Vivian wetted her lips slightly with her tongue.
“I agree that something is wrong. But I can’t see very well from here, can I go up there? ”
“So you’re saying we should go inside like this? ”
“I mean, do you have a sharp spot? I thought you were going in anyway. Or should I summon my garrison of horses and make a run for it? ”
I immediately rejected Vivian’s words.
When exploring the ruins, one of the laws is to maintain a prayer vinic. Approaching the center without drawing as much attention as possible, but there’s no need to poke the honeycomb.
Of course, I did not doubt Vivian’s ability, but the method was already proven to be worthless in the first place.
Soon after finishing my search, I glanced at Ansol reflectively.
Suddenly, Ansol’s silent face was still sad. But I don’t see any fear in that face. I could only sneak a peek at the feeling of sadness.
“Hmmm. There are times when many of these places have causes in the center. Like a square, or something unusual. That means we find the cause, we eliminate it. ”
I thought for a moment about Vivian’s words after clearing my throat.
‘There’s definitely something inside. I’m sure.’
Now I was feeling like I was just before anything happened, just before the storm. Not only did I tell you that many clans felt uneasy in this place. However, even the third eye couldn’t find anything, so it was really crazy and fascinating.
But what Vivian said was the right thing to do.
‘Then…. Are you going in knowing…?’
“… I’ll go inside. ”
Eventually, I decided to follow Vivian’s opinions, directing my entry into the interior and staring straight ahead.
Ten meters ahead, there was a staircase that was about 20 stories up. If this is the entrance to the ruins, you can think of it as a genuine interior while climbing those stairs.
I had a firm mind. Then I sensitively awakened my senses and took a step towards the stairs in front of me.
And that was the moment.
Little Soliloquy from Ansol, behind his back.
“… hate heroes. ”
I whispered in my ear as if I had never been more sensitive.

Oh, I’m sorry. I was writing today, and I fell asleep, and it was past 12: 00. Suddenly, I was terrified, and I woke up. Tsk, tsk. It seems that life has changed almost day and night. I hope I get my life back when I was in school. I’ll start cooling down right away.: D
