The very first sounds that flew past my ears were arrows fired by Mev and the Green Skin Archers. The arrows that flew instantaneously punctured the bodies of the humans like pin cus.h.i.+ons. The arrow, that pierced a s.h.i.+eld lacking magical runes and punched through – the human’s body was clearly from Mev.
After completing the change of cla.s.ses to a Fairy Sprite Archer; the capacity of magic in her arrows increased, so every arrow she fired, a sacrifice would appear.
” Fu . . . f.u.c.k, I never heard of such a monster clan . . . f.u.c.k . . . Magician ! Magician ! ”
He was impatiently searching for the magicians, but they were already busy trying to block the arrows fired at them. I happened to smile at the words of the warrior: that they have not heard of such a monster clan.
‘ A flashy debut. ‘
” For Blood Dagger ! ”
” For Blood Dagger ! ”
The flagbearer that was running with a flag raised high on his back, was the first of the most loyal five siblings. His frame was extremely large for a simple flagbearer though. With the body of an Orc, he sliced his sword into the necks of his opponents. Using two short swords, he was uncommonly using the reverse-grip. It was probably from my Sacred Battle against the Queen of the North that had influenced him.
It seems his ambition was to be an a.s.sa.s.sin. That would be a huge detriment to the clan as a whole. I wanted to recommend the swordsman cla.s.s that will out-scale the same cla.s.s of the a.s.sa.s.sin later on.
Since he’s someone that listens to me well, he would immediately change cla.s.ses to a swordsman from my instructions.
Though he lacks it now, once he awakens his Unique Ability, I thought that he would look completely different from his present state.
” Entangle. ”
This ‘ group; ‘ that had a high ratio of a.s.sa.s.sins, the reason why we were able to attain victory straightforwardly was due to the presence of Plant Magician: Jung Hayeon. Especially, in this forest, her effectiveness was greatly enhanced. In an instant, tree roots grabbed ahold of the fleeing humans, allowing our Clan a.s.sa.s.sins to rush them.
‘ Fast. ‘
Seeing her, I had determined that Jung Hayeon was quite crucial to this clan. Thanks to her neutralization magic, cleaning up the rest of the humans became extremely fast. Though there were a few that started to put up resistance, even that minority was quickly defeated. I swung my greatsword widely once against them.
” Kwajik ”
The two humans that broke down made a grim statement.
” In . . . inform the city . . . . the city ! There’s a new monster clan ! A new monster clan at . . . . gereeeuk ”
I threw a dagger at the noisy humans, causing them to collapse clutching their necks. Aside from that, I could continuously hear the wailing of pain and loss. The somewhat Strong humans, as if they had either entered the cave already or died, otherwise weren’t to be seen.
Even after the guy had been pierced with a dagger, whimper of protests here and there continued to echo.
” Ahhhhhhhhk ! ”
” Save . . . Save me . . . ”
” Kyaaaak ”
I could see a guy whose body was constricted by a tree root, causing his intestines to burst out of his mouth. It was so putrid that; it even made me who was fairly strong to those kind of horrific scenes grimace . . . looking over at Jung Hayeon, I saw that she was laughing.
Those intestines lay arranged in a pile splattered in front of the victim.
It was a ridiculously easy battle. It wasn’t just me. You couldn’t say that these guys were strong, but I was able to realize through this fight that we had gotten much stronger from the time after the Tutorial.
” WAHHHHHHH ! ! For Blood Dagger ! ”
I left the Blood Dagger clansmen intoxicated in the victory alone. It doesn’t matter even if they jumped around. Since we had entered this road so quickly after investigating the surroundings, there were none able to escape as most of the humans were lying on the ground – while the rest had already entered the cave. Probably the humans who had fled inside were informing the parties that a new monster clan existed, but it does not matter at this level.
I waved at the green skin clansmen still drunk in their victory, and as expected, they began to follow me in like dogs. As such, we stepped into the Spider Cave.
A familiar scene welcomed me. The spider webs that were stuck on the walls and also stretched along the ground everywhere; accompanied by those disgusting spider body fluids, it was an entrance larger than I thought. But, the road ahead in which we had to enter was extremely narrow. It seems that the humans do not have to worry about running away.
We slowly began to advance. If it were in the case of humans, light magic was needed so that they could see; however for us, our eyes naturally adjusted to the dark setting. Of course it wasn’t perfect. But, it was decent enough for us to see and be aware of any potential dangers.
So we began to move slowly with me at the front. Finding the humans here were extremely easy. We just had to move towards the light.
Not long afterwards, we began to discover a party. Seeing them unperturbed while walking towards the entrance, it seems that the survivors weren’t able to inform this party. If they were to have screamed while entering the cave, the Summoned would definitely be made aware of the attack, but this act would also in turn call and gather all of the monsters in the dungeon as well.
It was an obvious choice, but the Summoned that entered the cave prioritized their own lives over the lives of the rest. Probably the ones that have fled in here were looking for parties that made hunting out of a living and prepared to face us. I was beginning to antic.i.p.ate the battle that will soon transpire.
I quietly signalled the three goblin siblings of the loyal five. I judged that if it were them, they could do it.
One was holding a s.h.i.+eld, another a longsword, and the last a hammer. I couldn’t help but think that they were like a.s.sa.s.sins from their very cautious movements. It seems that stealth were a special characteristic of the goblin race. Or they could have purposefully obtained and learned that ‘ technique. ‘
Soon, the three goblin siblings confronted those guys. The goblin with the s.h.i.+eld was the first to jump in. These agile goblins soon arrived right in front of the guys. The goblins who weren’t even half their height suddenly appearing in their sight greatly surprised them.
In the end, the goblin who was holding the s.h.i.+eld – bashed down the magician with her s.h.i.+eld, which quickly followed up with a hammer blow crus.h.i.+ng down.
” Ggireuk. ”
The goblin unable to hold in her joy let out a sound.
” Kwajik ! ”
Following the sound of a person who couldn’t even scream before dying.
” Fu . . . ck! Goblins ! ! Battle ! ”
With the magician flattened onto the ground, the light magic that they had sustained suddenly went out; as the cave became dark again, causing screams to screech out.
” AHHHHHK ! ”
The three female goblins began to encircle the guys with the perception of them as prey, and the warriors were not able to protect the other party members as they fended for themselves. While after the disappearance of the light magic, the party members were desperately trying to put magic into their eyes, but the tide had already tilted.
It was the same behind me.
If you consider the previous battle as an act of building experience, then it wouldn’t be an exaggeration to call this an a.s.similation of a.s.sa.s.sination training.
The other goblins that had chosen the path of a.s.sa.s.sins gathered into groups of five as expected and began hunting the human parties that were fighting the large spiders by surprise, as screams began to quickly echo throughout the cave. To be quite honest, to say they were screams were lacking since all of the Goblin and Hobgoblin a.s.sa.s.sins were piercing their throats like how they were taught.
” Ggirik. ”
” Ggirik . . . ”
It was a great, successful ‘ hunt, ‘ as silent, elated voices filled the place as we discovered a large cl.u.s.ter of light. There weren’t just one or two parties here. I decided to monitor the situation from afar first.
” So what I’m saying is that . . . there’s a Named Monster . . . holding a greatsword ! ”
” So how are we supposed to believe this? In this vicinity, there is only the Green Goblin Clan. That’s it. For you to suddenly say that a new clan and a Named Monster appeared . . . it’s more believable for you to rather say that Green Goblin had arrived. ”
” You b.a.s.t.a.r.d . . . are you a murderer perchance? ”
” Fu . . . f.u.c.k, who are you calling a murderer? Can’t you see this blood on my clothes? ”
” There’s the possibility of it being the victim’s blood. Stupid fool. Reveal your sins. ”
” Fu . . . f.u.c.k I don’t know. f.u.c.k. I don’t know even if we all die. ”
The issue of suspected murderers was the same now or then in the dungeon. The saying: ” to not trust anyone; other than your own party members in the dungeon” – worked quite well for our side. Even the past me wouldn’t have believed this b.a.s.t.a.r.d, who suddenly appeared drenched in blood; saying such nonsense that a Named Monster had appeared, so this kind of response was natural.
By the way, the range of this light was very large. With this much, it was highly probable that this was a place; where small clans, or beginners that joined large guilds were trained at. Thankfully, there were no strong opponents; that were able to notice our presence from afar.
‘ Let’s go! ‘
With one wave of the hand, the goblins nodded and surged towards the guys with a ” Kereeuk “.
” Fu . . . f.u.c.k – I was right ! They’re here ! You f.u.c.king b.a.s.t.a.r.ds ! We’re all going to die – f.u.c.k ! We’re all going to die I tell you ! ”
” Son of a . . . ! Prepare for battle ! Prepare for battle ! ”
Even though he raised his greatsword, our side was extremely quick. Our arrows fired first before his response to prepare for battle was bellowed as they pierced into the faces of the magicians. An attack that couldn’t be prepared for. It was definitely pleasing.
” Kereeeuk . . . ”
But despite that, the light magic didn’t turn off.
Naturally, I turned my attention towards the side where the light magic hadn’t gone off. I never imagined that I would have met one of my targets for my goal, ‘ Magic Swordsman Kim Donghyun ‘ who was able to use magic and the sword coincidentally from his unique ability.
” Kereeeung . . . ”
Before I knew it, I flung my body towards him. Thanks to that, the enemy archers’ arrows flew towards me, but the hobgoblins deflected them with their daggers.
” KWAAAAAAAAAH ! ! ! ”
Even though I was wielding a greatsword while rus.h.i.+ng at him, his expression didn’t change. Rather, it was an amused expression. I definitely knew that face. The kind of expression that thought that he was one of the chosen ones in this world. A category completely opposite from me in the past.
” KWAAAAAAAA ! ”
Although he had awakened his unique ability, but he was still a ‘ rookie ‘ like us, so one’s chances of victory was there.
As soon as I swung the large greatsword, a semi-transparent membrane blocked it.
‘ s.h.i.+eld. ‘
It seems that he could sustain s.h.i.+eld while using light magic. But, it seems that his mana wasn’t bountiful, as he soon deactivated his s.h.i.+eld and took out his sword.
I stared at the sword punching towards me directly. It seems that he had invested a lot more into the sword than me. But, I had laid everything down. 10 years of experience. And that large amount of experience who could compare to that. Soon, I let one hand go of my greatsword and deflected his sword with my dagger.
‘ f.u.c.king b.a.s.t.a.r.d. ‘
As if I had blocked the Green Goblin’s dagger three days ago.
Then, with my left hand, I brought my long sword out and slashed it towards him. That semi-transparent membrane appeared instantly. It seems that his casting speed was faster, or that he already had it casted before I slashed my sword. Anyhow, I thought that it would be the latter.
” Bang ! ”
Accompanied the sound as the long sword and s.h.i.+eld barrier clashed. Kim Donghyun’s magic soon broke. Seeing that, I had let go of the longsword. Again, his sword stretched out towards me, but the pattern was the same from before. I quickly lowered my body to evade and extended out my shoulder, charging at him. A sword flying towards me. It was precisely aiming for my chest. It grazed by. With my shoulder armour, I deflected Kim Donghyun’s attack.
” Ggiiiiiiiiiiik ! ”
That displeasing, scratching sound onto the steel armor echoed as his body and I collided.
That heavy feeling.
” Kuk ! ”
That voice spluttered in my ear. Just like that, I bent my back down and swung my greatsword down, cutting him in half. Certainly a good taste. I could feel the sensation of him splitting from head to toe.
” Kereeeeeeuk . . . ”
I stood there dumbfounded and stared at my hands.
‘ I won. ‘
It was a battle I couldn’t believe despite accomplis.h.i.+ng it with my own hands. I started to feel the shock beginning to subside.
I heard the voice of the one that the Green Skins called G.o.d of Battlefield.
Wooot, first named ‘ Strong ‘ down. I wish I could call them rankers for easier cla.s.sification, but ‘strong’ is the right terminology.
What could the voice be about? Cla.s.s Change? Possible Race Evolution? A Unique Ability?! Ooh, the suspense is killer.
Thanks for commenting !
