“The land that’s connected to the clan’s land. They said they’ll arrange the deal there. And they promised three times more than the original pay.”

“Finally!”

“An arrangement isn’t enough! Tell them to give us a definite answer!”

“The government must be worn out. Seeing as how they’re using that as bait.”

Everyone’s excited voice filled the room within seconds.

“What about the land? What do you mean?”

While everyone was talking about different things, when someone mentioned the land, they all focused on that.

Hyun-Soo was confused by how things suddenly turned positive, so he asked David who was beside him.

“Not sure if I should call it the clan’s grudge, but…you know that we have a forest in the back, right? That’s a private land and the owner is a stubborn elder and their relationship with Yoo-Na isn’t that great. They said they’re never going to sell and they’re planning on writing it on their will to not sell it.”

“But?”

“It’s the best place for building a airstrip. The plan was postponed, but if we accomplish it this time, then we don’t have to drive out far. That’s why everyone is getting worked up about it.”

“······.”

Hyun-Soo’s mind became blank at the word, airstrip.

‘I forgot about it for a moment.’

The truth that they were all born with a silver spoon.

No, silver spoon isn’t enough to described them.

Diamond shovel…no, maybe a bulldozer?

It was a truth he briefly forgot because everyone was acting carefree.

Hyun-Soo was at a loss for words for a brief moment because of the truth that was beyond his imagination, but David whisphered.

“I’m sure it’ll be easier for you when you go back home too. Well, we have been pretty frugal all this time. At our level, we should have our own private jet. There aren’t any big issues thanks to the help we’re getting from Yoo-Na’s, but we do feel uneasy.”

“······.”

It sounded like it was a good thing when she said Hyun-Soo was wearing a crown that no one else could have, but no matter how much he thought about it, it didn’t go well with his current self.

‘Does that mean things will get better from now on?’

What Ariel said had a similar feel to when his mother inquired about his future to a fortune teller.

Now that he thought about it, it was pretty similar.

She said something like his suffering will bring him even more luck.

Because of that, Hyun-Soo became a bit blunt.

Despite the fact that a lot of different people try to meet with her, the information that she provided wasn’t up to his expectations.

Like most people these days, Hyun-Soo also had a pessimistic opinion about superstition, so it’s possible that he felt that way even more.

“From the things that she had said, there were some vague areas. Ariel can only see a glimpse into the future.”

Kim Yoo-Na agreed with him by saying that she completely understood him.

But she didn’t stop there.

“But it’s weird how her predictions are usually right. Especially the predictions that happen in the near future or are about simple things, they’re usually detailed. On the other hand, for events that happen far off into the future, they’re vague and more symbolic. I think that might be your case Hyun-Soo…”

“Really?”

“On top of that, she sometimes explains it vaguely on purpose. Humans tend to focus on that one thing when they’re told that it’s fixed into their life. Ariel refers to the uncertainty as ‘hope for the future.”

Kim Yoo-Na explained that it’s the key point in separating the future that’s not fixed.

Hyun-Soo was confused by all of this, which caused his head to hurt.

‘Damn it. Who said it would be good to know the future?’

She said it was different for events that will happen in the near future, but everything that Hyun-Soo heard was vague.

He thought about telling her everything and discussing it with her, but Ariel told him that predictions that are related to him should be kept to himself, so he couldn’t ask.

Predictions could be interpreted differently depending on the point of view.

But still, Hyun-Soo somewhat had an idea as to why she spoke so vaguely about it.

‘Is she trying to make me think about the different directions?’

If she spoke with a conclusion, then that prediction would become reality.

Because it wouldn’t give an opening to other interpretations.

The hunters mentioned that Ariel was a Hidden Class.

It was also a name they were keeping quiet about and tried to avoid.

Also…

‘They’re also the reason why Gracovich barged in here.’

Before he was recruited by Kim Yoo-Na and flew over here, he remembered hearing her name.

It was probably similar back then too.

They were trying to avoid mentioning their name and keep them hidden.

He wasn’t going try to find out the thing they were hiding.

Because Hyun-Soo had secrets that he couldn’t tell others as well.

Since information about himself was important, there wasn’t a need to dig up another person’s information.

‘But this situation is a bit different.’

Someone actually used force to try to get to them.

He was unwillingly deeply involved in it too.

If Hyun-Soo lacked the power, then his waist could’ve been opened wide and he couldn’t lost a large amount of blood.

‘That’s why I have the right to ask.’

He was unexpectedly attacked by weird guys.

He was directly involved in that attack.

So asking should…be okay, right?

“Ariel is…”

“I have a feeling that he’s holding a grudge against us.”

Someone spoke as they recalled how Hamilton acted politely until the end.

Like they mentioned, Hamilton’s actions were clear.

 

Since I’m not powerful enough, I’ll come back later.

 

In simple terms, if he had enough power, then the situation would’ve ended differently.

If Kim Yoo-Na didn’t appear and he had more men with him, then he wouldn’t have given up that easily.

In order to fulfill his desire, he was willing to come back.

He felt that will from Hamilton.

‘What kind of skill does Ariel have exactly…?’

What kind of skill and position was she in that he would barge in here and use his men to meet with her?

How powerful was she that Kim Yoo-Na and the other crews were keeping quiet about her and trying to hide her?

He had a lot of questions, but now wasn’t the time to ask.

Hyun-Soo decided to ask at the right time.

“Whew, at least I was able to warm-up.”

“You’re right. It was way better than playing basketball.”

Once a hunter spoke while catching their breaths, another hunter added to the conversation.

They were right.

It was an intense warm-up that it couldn’t be compared to basketball.

The excitement they felt just now must’ve not died down because their shoulders and chest continuously moved up and down.

“Yoo-Na! That was great timing.”

A person went up to Kim Yoo-Na and showed the palm of their hand.

Clap!

Their first opponent was none other than…

‘Why me?!’

It was Hyun-Soo.

He barely dodged their strong kick that was filled with energy.

Thanks to the trainings he did to improve his reflexes, his body moved back, and if it weren’t for that, then their foot would’ve kicked his temple.

Even though a hunter’s body has been trained more than an ordinary person’s body, if one of their vital points were suddenly attacked, then it’s obvious that they would die.

Hyun-Soo just barely managed to avoid death and his chest started breathing deeply.

“Hey, are you okay?”

“…I’m fine.”

“I know it’s been too quiet lately, but a guy like this just barges in and it’s really rude!”

With that statement, a fight broke out.

Hamilton stepped behind the group and the men in the black suit charged with skills and weapons in their hands.

At first, they looked like ordinary guards, but they were hunters because they attacked the other hunters without any hesitation.

Swoosh!

One of the men in a suit quickly dashed and used their sword to attack a hunter’s neck.

But hunter managed to dodge it by twirling their body and performed a counterattack.

Another man in a suit crouched and used their fist to attack the same hunter.

Another hunter used their elbow to stop their attack.

“Ack…!”

It was a messy fight.

Even though it was easy to differentiate them, it was difficult to see who was attacking who because everyone was busy attacking and defending at the same time.

Click, clack.

Hamilton, who was standing behind the crowd, suddenly started moving.

He was heading towards the entrance of the building.

Hyun-Soo was the one that saw it.

“Oh no you don’t…!”
After creating a long spear, Hyun-Soo threw it towards Hamilton.

However.

Clang!

“…..!”

A person suddenly appeared as if they were created from thin air and blocked his attack.

“You’re really bothersome.”

When Hamilton waved his hand, the guard that suddenly appeared charged towards Hyun-Soo.

“Ack!”

Clank!

The sword hit Hyun-Soo’s arm and created a loud metallic sound.

Hyun-Soo was pushed back due to the shock.

It was so strong that Hyun-Soo’s arm could’ve been cut off if he didn’t use his instincts to use his skill.

“Finish him quickly.”

“For master and the House of Mammon!”

“Cheers!”

“Cheers!”

  

The spirits’ dormitory.

Since all the spirits in the House of Mammon gathered, the large dormitory seemed small.

  

The spirits either had beer or a cup of alcohol that was available in the dungeon world. Since the salamander didn’t have hands, a bowl filled with beer was placed next to their head and the Treant poured the beer on the roots using their vine.

  

Eligor brought out a large amount of goods.

There was so much that if the goods that Yong-Ho ordered didn’t arrive tomorrow, then they would have to starve for the next couple of days.

  

There was meat that they obtained from the hunt and pancakes were made with the milk, egg and flour that was purchased from the dungeon shop and a variety of vegetable stir fry.

 

The dishes weren’t that amazing, but there was a large amount.

  

The only downside was that compared to the food, there wasn’t enough beer. It’s because there wasn’t a reason to drink it. But Eligor did purchase a case of it for Yong-Ho just in case and if it wasn’t for that, everyone would be drinking water.

  

The Orcs were a more exciting race than Yong-Ho had originally thought.

No, there might a difference in thought, but the Orcs who were new to the House of Mammon clearly displayed their likes and dislikes.

  

Foras was the one that attacked the House of Mammon first.

And Foras and his spirits were trying to kill Yong-Ho and his spirits.

Rikum and the other Orcs put their lives on the line to kill their opponent and that thought didn’t change.

Since he had to take care of a lot of things as soon as he woke up, Yong-Ho only saw the war carriage on the report that Eligor gave him.

  

He did see it from afar when Foras brought it with him during the attack, but the only thing he could make out was that the color was black and it was a square shaped carriage.

 

“Hm, it’s a KV-128. The KV series is one of the masterpieces. The fact that it’s poorly designed is its flaw, but it’s sturdy and powerful. The performance of the mana stored inside is pretty good as well.”

  

The war carriage that appeared between Yong-Ho and Sitri wasn’t the one that Foras rode in.

A number was written on the report and after the report is placed on top of the magic circle, a model of the carriage was created.

  

Yong-Ho’s eyes were filled with curiosity as well. The war carriage that was in front of him was like a tank.

The body reminded him of a car because it was square-shaped and the color was black, but there were six small wheels attached to it. Each of the wheels were armored and the window and door reminded him of a vehicle that escorted criminals.

  

“The war carriage can be pulled by various animals, but it can also be moved through mana. Of course, it’ll be a bit slower.”

 

Sitri spoke while pointing to various parts of the carriage and it reminded him of a narrator model at a car show. When she opened the door, there was equipment installed, which made it easy to operate.

  

‘It looks like one of those trucks that’s used at a DMV.’

  

The handle, pedal and the stick to change to gear was exactly like a car. The way to operate it may be similar to the cars that are in the human world.

  

Like the outer appearance, the inside was bland as well. There was a square box in the middle and there were chairs attached to the walls.

  

Sitri pointed to the box and explained.

The Dungeon Maker – Chapter 048

<Dungeon Reorganization #1>

No matter what anyone said, the Heart of the Dungeon was the most important location within the dungeon.

The Heart of the Dungeon provided mana to all the facilities within the dungeon and the Spirit of the Dungeon, who was like the manager of the dungeon, lived there.

 

If the Heart of the Dungeon dies, then the dungeon dies too.

The dungeon wasn’t a simple location or building. It was an enormous spirit.

 

With Catalina following behind him, Yong-Ho entered the secret room that was in the Heart of the Dungeon. The bleak room wasn’t any different from the last time he visited.

  

“You’re here, master.”

“You didn’t have to rush here.”

  

A moment ago, the Spirit of the Dungeon was urging for him to go, but now, they were cunning.

There was a reason why she had the voice of a little girl.

 

Since it was such a cute whine, Yong-Ho just chuckled and approached the Heart of the Dungeon. The Heart of the Dungeon was placed on top of a rough altar and they were releasing an even brighter light than the last time he visited.

 

The Spirit of the Dungeon spoke.

  

“Because you’ve gotten stronger, I was given the chance to grow as well.”

“The mana that I need in order to grow has been charged, so all you have to do is give me your approval.”

“Please place both of your hands on top of my body.”

 

Yong-Ho followed their instructions and placed both of his hands on top of the marble that was releasing an emerald-colored light.

  

It was warm. It was similar to body heat.

Yong-Ho instinctively replied to the question that popped in his head. He approved the Spirit of the Dungeon’s growth.

  

Moments later, it felt like his hands were being sucked into the Heart of the Dungeon. The light that was released from the Heart of the Dungeon grew bigger such that the emerald light filled the entire room.

  

Seconds later.

The Treant and the salamander were the ones guarding the prison. The two could go up against Skull when it came to spacing out, so it was their calling to play the role of the guard.

  

As soon as Yong-Ho entered the prison, the Treant bowed and removed the root that was placed on the entrance so that he could enter. The salamander was also crouched in front of the prison door and when they noticed Yong-Ho, they greeted him by bowing.

  

The Orcs were sprawled out inside of the cell and they reacted when Yong-Ho walked in. They didn’t stand up and show their respect towards him, but the ones that were lying down sat up and a few of them observed Yong-Ho sharply.

 

After looking at each and every one, Yong-Ho looked at the Orc that was sitting in the innermost part of the cell.

It was the Orc, Rikum, the one with an injured eye that Eligor informed him about.

  

Unlike the other Orcs, Rikum didn’t observe or glare at him. Rikum looked at him with a composed look and stood up as if they knew what was going to happen to them from now on. They looked at Yong-Ho and gave him a small nod.

  

Catalina stood next to Yong-Ho. Eligor and Skull both opened the cell door after Yong-Ho gave them the signal.

  

“Come out Rikum. Our master would like to speak with you.”

  

He had a serious tone. While the other Orcs were quietly talking amongst themselves, Rikum walked out confidently. After Eligor closed the door, he turned towards Yong-Ho.

 

“Let’s go.”

  

The Orcs started talking amongst themselves again, but when Rikum slightly raised his hand to tell them that it was okay, they became quiet. Like Eligor had stated, it seemed like Rikum had great leadership over the Orcs that were in the cell.

  

‘In that case, if Rikum joins our side, does that mean the issue with the prisoners will be resolved?’

<Unity Evolution #3>

Union evolution.

An act to join two different figures into one.

This was possible probably because the Power of Evolution itself became stronger after he got his third horn.

  

Yong-Ho understood the Power of Evolution this time too.

The name, Rock Skeleton Warrior, was probably made when Skull and the Rock Golem were evolved by being unified into one being.

  

The Power of Evolution is growing based on how much Yong-Ho was growing.

But that didn’t mean that it was an almighty power.

There were limits and conditions that had to be met, just like how the development rate needs to be filled up in order to evolve.

The union evolution was the same. It felt like there would be some sort of condition.

 

He was curious as to whether it was possible to perform with spirits that were alive and if two spirits have been unified, who’s free will will remain, etc.

  

But if he were to just focus on Skull and the Rock Golem, then it was simple.

 

Skull was an Undead. An already dead spirit that has been binded to a skeletal body through the power of magic.

And the Rock Golem didn’t have a conscious. Even if the two have been unified, it won’t affect Skull’s conscious.

  

A Skeleton Warrior that had the body and the strength of a Rock Golem.

If this worked, Skull will be able to display a stronger power.

 

‘If there’s one thing that’s getting to me…’

  

If he did proceed with the unification, then that’ll be it for the Rock Golem. Through the recent battle, he lost the Clay Golem and on top of that, he was close to losing the Rock Golem as well.

  

‘But.’

 

Skull was still important. It was a sad reality, but the House of Mammon was being operated by a small group. It was better to have one soldier that added to the group, rather than having two soldiers that were of no use because they were broken.

 

“Ready?”

  

Yong-Ho spoke. Skull answered with the same trusting expression.

  

“Skullll!”
