The Dungeon Maker – Chapter 070

<Dungeon Upgrade #1>

  

Jungceros’s spirit was delicious.

The quality wasn’t as good as Foras’s spirit, but when looking at just the amount of the mana, it was more than Foras’s.

When comparing it to food, it lacks flavor, but it can make a person feel full.

  

Jungceros’s element was darkness. Greed embraced Jungceros’s darkness this time too and Yong-Ho felt a new element take place within his mana.

 

Mana made up a demon’s body and spirit.

And among them, the “demon kings” had a lump of mana that was purer than ordinary demons.

  

A new horn didn’t develop. However, his other skills increased.

Yong-Ho enjoyed his powerful body and breathed in deeply. Even though he was just breathing in, he felt mana boiling in various parts of his body.

 

When Yong-Ho felt the change, Catalina and Skull also realized that they changed.

  

Catalina’s darkness became stronger. The mana that helped Skull move their dead body became sturdier.

  

Foras’s power, coldness, became Yong-Ho’s attribute.

Jungceros’s Mind Control made Yong-Ho’s mind stronger.

 

“Great.”

It felt like time stopped.

Inside the room where the battle was taking place, everyone remained still as if they froze. They were so still that one would probably wonder if they remembered how to breathe.

 

But it didn’t last long.

The one that broke the silence was surprisingly the one that caused the silence.

 

Jungceros’s large body fell to the ground. It seemed like he was just leaning over, but he must’ve not been able to handle his weight, because his body fell. And he didn’t move anymore. He had a blank look on his face.

 

“Pant, pant…pa…”

 

Yong-Ho, who was being weighed down by Jungercos, raised himself up while panting. Catalina, who was within Yong-Ho’s arms, quickly used her arms and legs to help him.

 

It was hard to tell how this happened. Jungceros fell on Yong-Ho and their eyes met. And a few seconds later, Jungceros became unconscious.

 

“Mind oppression.”

 

Yong-Ho quietly spoke while trying to collect his breath. The sight of Greed devouring Jungceros impacted Yong-Ho. Jungceros and Yong-Ho were on the same level, so when Jungceros couldn’t resist Greed, it excited Yong-Ho.

 

“They tried to control my mind.”

 

That was enough. The Orcs were surprised because they didn’t know what he meant, but it wasn’t the same for Catalina and Ophelia. Ophelia actually felt joy and fear at the same time.

 

Her joy was because of Greed.

Her fear was also because of Greed. Read More

“Is it okay…to give that away?”

“Why? Other than the Energy Stones that are lawfully traded, most of them come through here.”

That’s why it’s okay to give one or two.

Riri looked like she was contemplating.

She didn’t want to go, but it was difficult for her to ignore the Energy Stone.

‘Riri consumes energy. So, it’s obvious that she wants the Energy Stone, but…it is really okay? To use the Energy Stone that way?’

He used Energy Stones in his potion as well, but this was different.

Reworking the potion by using Energy Stones sounded a lot better.

But he was just giving it to Riri.

Kyuuuuu……

For some reason, Riri felt uncomfortable around Herhim.

No. He knew the reason why.

‘No one would feel comfortable if they felt threatened personally.’

However, Riri couldn’t overcome the temptation and approached Herhim.

Carefully. Slowly.

She inspected around Herhim while flying and ended up landing on Herhim’s hand.

She grabbed the Energy Stone and quickly flew to Hyun-Soo.

Tsk.

“I’m glad you’re here. We were discussing about how much information we should reveal regarding the colorful portal.”

Kim Yoo-Na greeted him warmly because Hyun-Soo contributed a lot during this hunt.

However, Leon didn’t know the reason, so he felt displeased.

“Technically, we only participated, so we need Xeon’s agreement.”

“What is Team Xeon suggesting?”

Leon looked a bit uncomfortable, but he replied.

“There’s…really no need to reveal it.”

“Then, Yoo-Na is on the side of wanting to reveal it.”

Since they’ve been through a lot, it’s understandable that they would suggest that.

On top of that, he probably felt that there wasn’t a need for Yoo-Na to have control over the information.

Hyun-Soo agreed with that.

‘Even if we reveal it, there’s a lot of people that won’t be able to use it anyways, so it’s better to boast about it a little’

Another reason was to annoy the higher-ups.

There was no reason to give them more power when they were trying to control the hunters for their own selfish gain.

‘Our life is on the line as well.’

Many lost their lives because they didn’t have enough information.

Of course some would still die even if they had the information.

Just in this portal, they managed to avoid death four times thanks to Hyun-Soo.

No one knew how things would turn out.

Excluding Hyun-Soo, everyone was in the same situation, so they promised to keep quiet about this.

“We need make sure Team Xeon keeps their mouths shut too!”

One person urged that they get rid of the evidence.

Blehhhhh!

Team Xeon was busy vomiting, so they didn’t really have to worry.

However, the more important members of the guild looked at Hyun-Soo oddly.

Hyun-Soo felt their stares and put on a big smile while looking back at them.

There was no reason to avoid them.

He actually wanted them to see, judge and think about it.

The floor that shined brightly was actually the first floor.

“Is it because it’s a colorful portal? Nothing is easy.”

No one had any idea as to what kind of space they were in.

Once they realized that they landed on the first floor without dying, they released a sigh of relief.

If something went wrong, the first floor would’ve be covered in blood.

The hunters that come in after won’t have any idea as to what happened and how they ended up dying this way.

“Tsk, tsk. How much longer are you guys going to keep vomiting?”

“Should we dismember while waiting?”

“Yeah.”

They were supposed to dismember the monster with Team Xeon.

Kim Yoo-Na’s clan did all the hunting and the only thing Team Xeon did was get in the way.

But, they did participate so that they could guide Team Xeon during the hunt.

That’s why it’s better for both sides to observe and see how the situation works out.

However…….

<Dungeon Offense #4>

 

The shape of Foras’s dungeon entrance and the House of Mammon’s dungeon entrance was different.

For the House of Mammon, a large door was attached at the bottom of the hill, but for the House of Mammon, a castle gate was attached.

A fortress was created by piling stones and the dungeon itself must’ve been located underground because from the outside, the castle gate was the only thing standing tall.

 

The dungeon entrance was completely sealed. Jungceros’s war carriage was still next to the door, so there was a high chance that Jungceros was trapped.

Gokan, who was leading the way, spoke.

 

“There’s a secret passageway that we used to escape. This way.”

 

After placing the war carriages near the gate, Yong-Ho followed Gokan. There was a forest not too far from the gate and a well with a cover was hidden between the grass.

 

While Gokan and the Orcs were removing the cover, Rikum looked at Yong-Ho.

 

“Like we’ve mentioned before, we’re able to move to different parts of the dungeon through these secret passageways. The problem is that we don’t know where Jungceros is right now…is there an area you’ve thought of before coming here?”

 

Ophelia also looked curious. She had expectations, but it looked like she was also testing him. Yong-Ho looked at both of them and spoke.

 

“We’ll go straight to the Heart of the Dungeon’s room.” Read More

<Dungeon Offense #3>

 

The conversation was moving at a fast pace.

Catalina kept on licking her lips and in the end, looked at Yong-Ho while biting her lips.

  

Catalina was able to understand the context of the conversation. If everything that the Orc said was true, then Yong-Ho had to make a move. The information was that valuable.

  

But if what they said wasn’t true.

If this was a well thought out trap.

  

Catalina didn’t know the successor of the House of Foras. Were they that stupid that they would let a tiger come into their house just so they can bring their enemy down? Was Jungceros really that sneaky and evil that they would kill someone that surrendered without any hesitation?

  

Catalina couldn’t find the answer. Despite of that, Catalina remained quiet because she trusted Yong-Ho.

Yong-Ho probably thought about the same things.

In that case, how was he going to determine whether what they said was true?

  

Catalina’s expectations weren’t wrong. Yong-Ho soon found a solution.

  

“Ophelia.”

“Yes, sir.”

  

Ophelia immediately answered when Yong-Ho called her. Even though Yong-Ho gives his orders, Ophelia looked like she knew what she had to do. Read More

<Power Expansion Preparations #1>

 

What would happen if the Puppeteer controlled them?

Then they would become the enemy.

“You guys are no help, so stay behind!”

The members became really annoyed because the members of Team Xeon only got in the way.

A member angrily asked why they had to babysit when it was hard enough going up against a monster they’ve seen for the first time.

Marcus was the one that said it.

His pride was just as high as the level of his skill.

He was one of the members that didn’t really like the collaboration.

He did acknowledge the need for it, so he followed Kim Yoo-Na, but once he realized how unhelpful they were, he released his anger.

‘Weakness…where’s the weakness…’

Hyun-Soo quickly moved his eyes to find the Puppeteer’s weakness.

But he couldn’t find the white dot anywhere.

‘Damn it, I need to make the monster move somehow…’

The Puppeteer stayed in one place as if it was glued to that spot.

‘What to do?’

Hyun-Soo quickly tried to think of something.

The more time passes, the more they’re at a disadvantage.

On top of that, they had to babysit.

And then.

Kim Yoo-Na gave her orders.

They were also envious of Hyun-Soo because Riri would sit on Hyun-Soo’s shoulder.

Hyun-Soo felt proud.

However, all of them didn’t feel the same way.

‘……Is it just me?’

Leon, the leader of Team Xeon, gave off a different vibe.

Hyun-Soo wasn’t sure if he felt that way because his first impression of them wasn’t great or if it was because Leon really was looking at him with disgust.

But when he first awakened as a hunter, he met a lot of people with horrible personalities, so this was nothing to him.

“Um…….”

Some of the members from Xeon looked like they wanted to ask questions.

“…….”

Before Hyun-Soo could answer, the members kept their mouths shut due to the glares they were receiving from others.

Team Xeon must have a strict system because when Leon started walking without saying anything, the members quietly followed behind him.

Team Xeon was following behind, but most of the members wasn’t feeling great about this.

‘Can’t believe we’re asking for their help…’

It wasn’t even teamwork. They were basically carrying Team Xeon.

Both sides knew that that was the truth.

Team Xeon knew that they weren’t skilled enough to hunt a colorful portal.

Because the guilds that were stronger than them failed at clearing the portal.

They probably never thought about going in by themselves and clearing it.

Coaching? Giving advice?

That only helps when you’re slightly lacking, but it’s useless when you have nothing to start with.

Kyuuuuu!

<Riri’s Skill #2>

 

The leader was one of the few skilled hunter in the guild.

‘Isn’t it the guild leader’s job to help the members increase their experience?’.

It can be pretty dangerous if the guild only focuses on a few of the members.

What if something happens to that hunter during the hunt?

If a majority of the hunters were just supporting, can that really be considered as hunting?

Guild leaders should be like Kim Yoo-Na and consider each of the members’ skills important.

And that’s what the leader of Team Xeon lacked.

Hyun-Soo considered that to be the reason why he didn’t like their leader so much.

“He’s here again…tsk, tsk. He just doesn’t know when to quit.”

“He should choose his opponent carefully. Yoo-Na isn’t even talking to him, but he’s acting all friendly.”

“What’s with that attitude? They’re the ones getting our help, but they’re acting as if we’re hunting together.”

The big hunters gathered together and quietly complained.

It was like seeing those middle-aged women in the markets.

‘I didn’t think I would experience the traditional Korean market atmosphere in the US…’  

Katrina, who didn’t know anything about the conversation they were having, intercepted.
