Chapter 554 00554 The Storm Begins.
A terrible scream echoes to leave the camp nearby. Not once, but twice in a row. The clan lords who attended the meeting, including myself, immediately stopped the meeting and ran to the site. But when I arrived on site, I was buzzing with users who had run ahead.
The situation was already over. I don’t see any monsters running away before the users arrive. Only a large amount of blood splattered on the ground will tell us what happened here.
“If the users were guarding this perimeter…. Maybe…. »
T r a ns la ted by Ｊpm t l .ｃ o m A man stomps the ground hard and bursts into fury. He was one of those guys who came running with me. Given the clenching of his fists and the shouting, it seems that the injured users are probably members of the subordinate clan. Or just acquaintances.
“Dammit! What the hell is going on?! ”
“Here we go. God’s heavenly host. Fix it. I understand the feeling, but I have a lot of eyes. ”
“Damn. Do I look calm to you now? My men were attacked and killed…! ”
“Oh, I can’t help it now. What do we do if we don’t have the information? ”
It was definitely the same. There’s nothing to know from the scene. All you can guess is that the monsters stormed the users who were guarding the perimeter and quickly retreated after achieving their goal.
Perhaps if you were a more spinning user, you could guess a little bit more here. Monsters are aggressive enough to feed their users, but also have the intelligence to suppress their predisposition.
The Shin Sky Keeper Road continued to burst with frenzy, and the speech of the dryers began to rise slowly. Everyone around him is looking at it with an awkward face. In a certain sense, it was a natural reaction, but given the current situation, it was not a good behavior. Tr ansla ted by ｊpｍ t l.ｃ o m
… I don’t think today’s meeting will continue anyway.
After a brief review of the scene, I turned my back without hesitation and headed for the tent. I need to get some sleep so I can do my job tomorrow.
And the next day.
The sky was clear and sunny enough to think that what happened overnight was a lie.
As soon as I finished my simple cleanse in the morning, I quickly got ready to leave. And by the end of the morning meeting with no income, most of the camp had already been cleared out. Users also finished preparing for departure in line with their respective units.
“Ten minutes to launch. Let’s all finish our last check. ”
As I move to the front and relax, Jin Soo-hyun, who looks a little depressed, approaches.
“Brother, did you come up with anything important at this meeting? ”
Then, not only Jin Soo-hyun, but all the clan members felt distracted. I shake my head as hard as I can.
“No. Not really? ”
“You haven’t told me about the monsters? ”
“It came out, but it’s not that different from yesterday. Just think of users as prey, intelligent? ”
“… I see. ”
Jin Soo-hyun shrunk her shoulders. Then he sighs heavily and turns away nodding powerlessly. I looked at him quietly, and soon I looked over the entire expedition.
T ran sla ted b y Ｊp mtl .ｃ om “ ……. ”
Almost expressionless. Of course, it was not very lively from the beginning, but now it felt quite submerged.
But good. Given the situation that has passed so far, we cannot see that this mechanism is always bad. Of course, it is only a process that is still being formed, but the foundation I want is slowly being made.
– The vanguard. Let’s go.
Soon after Han Soyoung’s instructions started to fall, I stopped the tour and turned my head forward. As I looked up, the mountain peak, which was soaring like a stake in the sky, entered my view. I didn’t make it yesterday, but I have to make it today.
The march of the Southern expedition began in such a slightly stagnant atmosphere.
Time has passed.
The stagnant energy that began when you left the camp began to change from the ascent of the mountains. With tension.
So the pace of march had to slow down naturally. You may have walked uphill, but your vigilance is clearly enhanced because you don’t know when and where monsters will appear.
However, from a point of view of the monster’s identity, I don’t think users can be 100% defensive no matter how vigilant they are.
Could it be a habit or a habit trap?
The monsters that have begun to appear are monsters of a different dimension than the North. For example, the sensation of a dizzy magical force does not help us.
Either way, we should prepare in a new way to accommodate it, but it was natural for us to be penetrated because we only have to defend ourselves as we have always done.
Not only that, but the geography around which we are walking right now has been a huge factor in our failure to catch up. Rough, bumpy climbs and dense forests limit even the view.
In other words, for monsters, it was a situation to make the most of their home ground.
Tr ansl a ted by ｊp ｍtl.c oｍ But you have to consider what you’re doing as long as you’re here to attack anyway. I continued up the mountain with an expedition that was unsettling at times.
The closer we got to the summit, the denser the forest was and the more obstructing the expedition’s path. Moreover, when the cloud started to spread around, even I was able to tilt my head slightly.
It was about 100 meters to the top.
Suddenly, there was a kind of wit in the magic detection.
It was really a sudden catch. Hundreds of ridges were coming in stealthily to the left and to the right, but at a very rapid rate.
It is also very extensive. At this rate, not only the vanguard, but even the center and rear were dangerous.
My body feels full of excitement. I had no time to think anymore.
“Hostiles approaching from both sides! All hands to battle stations! ”
It was that moment.
A sharp wave that seems to tear the air as it ends.
First, two tentacles flew to the left and to the right, aiming at me at the leading edge. After a brief, reflexively pulling out the sword, I quickly sweep left and right.
And then two seconds later. Several tentacles burst out of the forest, cutting through the static for only a short time. Monsters are attacking a nearby tribe.
But I don’t intend to take it lightly, I shouted without delay.
Tr a ns la t e d by ｊp ｍtl .com “Never mind!”
He was also very nervous from the time he climbed the mountain range, so he responded immediately.
“The Izzies System! ”
“Gem Amplification! ”
At the same time, Hanbyol’s response followed.
Soon, the tentacle rains will rain down on the vanguard, creating a huge hexagonal shield in the air. The moment a large amount of glittering jewels were sprayed, the shield increased in number and covered the vanguard with a sudden difference.
The tentacles flew in delightfully and were blocked by a single shield. It even went back the way it flew. Perhaps it is a unique ability, the efficacy of rebirth.
“Oh, oh, oh! ”
“Sa, you’re alive! ”
You check the shield that protects you, and the chaotic vanguard immediately recovers his calm.
I gave further instructions and changed my progress as soon as possible. Mercenary takes the lead, Blader takes the left, and Wet takes the right. In the meantime, dozens of tentacles flew away again, but the sober priests were able to block the shield with no damage.
After stopping two attacks, we barely have Tum.
“Clan Road. Give the order.”
“Archers stand by for launch. The wizards are all ready for boundary magic. The rest will remain in effect. ”
After a quick instruction from the newborn, I grabbed the sword tightly. I frowned slightly.
Hundreds of movements that occupied left and right began to slide backwards. Like there’s nothing more to see for the vanguard. It was a really quick move.
“You’re all set. Do we fire?”
“No, wait a minute. ”
I think I know how the monsters got in. I don’t know how, but they know that I can grasp their minds, and their roots know the shape of the magic detection.
That’s why they didn’t aim for the front. We lurk in the distance from one another, and as we pass by, we rush in with speed. Even if I knew, I wouldn’t be able to respond.
… that they knew we were coming through here today.
The monsters are still in hiding.
While I’m nervous, I slowly raise my hand, thinking about trying to react appropriately.
It was then.
Kwam, as you hear a huge explosion from behind, the red light starts to fill all four sides in an instant.
I turned my anger away. Then, at the far rear, I could see the red flame and one or two starting to rise.
Suddenly I felt numb. You practiced pyrotechnic magic in all directions?
I got swearing.
“Clan Lord? ”
“Wizards! Use the magic you’ve prepared as your rear! ”
“Dammit. Use boundary magic as a bush to the rear! » And get ready for some water-based magic! ”
I shouted with a loud, magical voice. The vanguard wizards stared at me shivering for days, but immediately began to turn around one by one.
“ ─ ─ ─. ─ ─ ─. ─ ─ ─. Dig in the Ground! ”
“ ─ ─ ─. ─ ─ ─. ─ ─ ─. Earth Quake! ”
“ ─ ─ ─. ─ ─ ─. ─ ─ ─. Ground of Fury! ”
“ ─ ─ ─. ─ ─ ─. ─ ─ ─. Rock Blaster! ”
The wizards, reaching the end of the millennium, cast their magic.
The ground fires, shakes, splits, and bursts. The stubborn noise then shook the eardrums.
The effect was immediately visible. Those who were running backwards in the first place, as well as those who were moving, have suddenly begun to become certain. Those who have been moving erratically have been displaying sudden, swirling movements of magic.
“Archers away! ”
Dozens of archers fire their arrows together. The numerous arrow rains that were fired with sharp waves disappeared into the flames that began to get rougher.
And after a while.
With a giant scream, their movements begin to fade, and you can feel them scattering rapidly in all directions. Everyone stopped moving and began to retreat.
After seeing every last one of them run, I put a dagger in his sheath. All that’s left is a flowerpot that swallows up the forest around it.
“New User New Dragon. Ask them to enter evolution as soon as water-based magic is ready. ”
Shin Jae Ryong replied with a voice. It’s so sudden, I feel like I’m still out of my mind.
“Hanbyol. Hanbyol. You guys stop disarming it. ”
“Well, can I? ”
The monsters have escaped anyway. I nodded quietly.
Soon after I saw several sprinkles of water sprinkled in the flames, I took a step back. It was because we needed to know for sure who used the magic of the fire system. It wasn’t about the enemy. It was about common sense, leaving Morgana.
I had no choice but to stop the stride, just before I had just moved into the central unit. Precisely where the rear of the vanguard and the front of the central unit diverge.
“Khhh! My arm, my arm! ”
“Woof! Woof! ”
Around you, it was a complete mess.
