[Would you like to use the shop?]

[Accept/Reject]

Min Sung touched the accept button, and the shop window appeared.

The shop window was very straightforward.

He saw a list of items he could purchase with the experience points he had acquired.

Since Min Sung preferred to increase his magic power rather than learning other trivial skills, he chose the power output.

[You’ve used all of your experience points to increase your magic power by +4.]

[Your reputation increased by +9 for a total of +10.]

What he received as a special reward was another divination sign.

He now had 2 divination signs.

If he acquired just 6 more, he would be able to stop the growth of the Iris tree that connected the earth to Beatrice.

‘Time to clear the last dungeon in Vanguard Frontia.’

Min Sung used the portal gate to leave the dungeon.

***

His upgraded magic power was so strong that even Min Sung was surprised by his own body.

His speed of growth was so surprising that ever since he came to Beatrice, he wondered just how powerful he could get in this world.

But that also meant that the high-ranking players were that much more powerful.

Min Sung didn’t like to drag things on, but if this was the kind of star this was, Min Sung was willing to take the necessary steps.

He entered the 3rd dungeon in the south with the help of the elf and cat creature.

Since it was the last dungeon, he hoped he could get a special reward or more experience points, but the outcome didn’t meet his expectations.

The dungeon in the south was the weakest and the easiest out of the three, so he only acquired +100 experience points there.

Although he cleared the third dungeon, there was no special quest, and there was no special reward or gift from the gods either.

He wasn’t too disappointed, but he felt a void inside since he had been receiving such rewards up until this point.

“Good work. You’ve cleared all 3 dungeons.”

When Ho Sung Lee said that, a bell sound went off along with a main quest.

[Main Quest: Head over to Newtie City and find ‘Kiero’ for which there is a reward.]

[Reward: +2000 points]

“We’re going to head over to Newtie City. You said there’s a warp gate in that city, right?”

Min Sung asked the elf and cat creature.

“There’s a warp gate, but in order to use it, you need Baron Cross’ permission,” the elf replied.

Min Sung clicked his tongue.

He couldn’t believe he needed someone’s permission to use the warp gate.

He felt frustrated, but if that was the rule of Beatrice, he had no choice but to follow it.

But at that moment…

A bird flew over and landed on Min Sung’s shoulder.

There was a small piece of paper wrapped around that bird’s ankle.

“It’s a carrier pigeon,” the cat creature said.

The pigeons of Beatrice were trained with magic.

There was a piece of paper attached to the carrier pigeon’s ankle.

“What’s that?”

Ho Sung Lee asked.

“An invitation from Baron Cross.”

As Min Sung said, the letter that the carrier pigeon delivered was an invitation for Min Sung.

Since he needed Baron Cross’ permission to use the warp gate anyway, he had enough reason to meet with him.

“Let’s go to the baron,” Min Sung said as he began walking.

***

They arrived at the castle where the baron lived.

When he showed the invitation, the guards escorted Min Sung and his party inside.

The elf and cat creature returned to the accommodation while Min Sung, Ho Sung Lee, Bowl, and Ssol entered the castle.

The castle was vibrant.

It looked like one of the castles from the middle ages.

It almost felt like they took a time machine to the middle ages.

Ho Sung Lee and Ssol looked around the inside of the castle in awe.

On the other hand, the only thing on Min Sung’s mind was to go over to Newtie City after meeting with Baron Cross.

As for Bowl, he was sleeping inside Min Sung’s pocket.

A moment later, they arrived at a large door.

When the door opened, they entered the dark space beyond it.

A man who appeared to be the baron sat in a chair.

The door shut with a large thud.

“Welcome,” Baron Cross said while sitting in the chair.

Min Sung put his hands in his pocket and walked toward the chair where Baron Cross was sitting.

“Why did you want to see me?”

Min Sung asked Baron Cross.

“You set a surprising record inside the dungeons. The superior office would like to know if you’re interested in joining our guild.”

“I have no interest in joining anything.”

Baron Cross saw the look in Min Sung’s eyes and came to the conclusion that he wasn’t up for negotiation.

“If you turn down the guild, you’ll become a target. Are you sure you want to decline?”

Baron Cross asked once more.

“Just let me use the warp gate,” Min Sung replied coldly.

Baron Cross laughed.

“I deal with a lot of foolish players from all around the world, but those ones usually die off a lot earlier than the rest, just like you will.”

As Baron Cross finished his sentence, the sound of the door locking could be heard.

And then from the darkness, men began to appear one by one from hiding.

They were 5 players from the guild.

“Novices need to behave like novices. Let me ask you one last time. Are you not interested in joining the guild?”

Baron Cross looked at Min Sung with sparkling eyes and proposed once more.

But Min Sung didn’t answer and took out his +9 Gungnir from his item widow.

Kaboom!

The sound of thunder rang through the room.

Baron Cross was startled by the noise, but the 5 guild players didn’t react.

Baron Cross coughed and spoke to the 5 guild players surrounding Min Sung and his party.

“He has no interest in joining the guild. Take care of him.”

In response to Baron Cross, the 5 players took out their swords.

The air turned cold in an instant and Min Sung calmly touched his shield in the item window.

As soon as he did, his entire body became covered with the dragon hunter armor set, and a shield equipped his left arm. This was the first time he faced off against other players since Yulice.

He put on the full equipment just in case, but he didn’t feel all that threatened.

But Min Sung didn’t look down on them either.

They might have been a part of the guild, but they were still the best players from their worlds.

He had to wait and see just how capable of a fighter they were.

As soon as Min sung’s eyes flashed with a white light, the 5 players charged toward Min Sung.

At the same time, Bowl summoned his devils.

When the multiple devils appeared, the 5 players immediately turned away.

The sudden appearance of the devils startled the players, and Min Sung used that moment as a chance to attack.

Kaboom!

Min Sung’s Gungnir stabbed through one of the players’ neck.

Gungnir completely penetrated that player’s neck, and when Min Sung pulled it back out, he died instantly.

Min Sung felt his speed, power and balance upgrading along with his stronger output.

They might have been players of Beatrice, but the players who tried to get him to join the guild weren’t all that powerful.

But Min Sung didn’t let his guard down and kept his focus.

Compared to Yulice, these players were weaker.

The reason why he could control them so easily was because of his upgraded abilities through the system.

‘Maybe it won’t even take that long for me to take down the Iris tree.’

Min Sung felt confident in his Gungnir, and the power exerted from it was unbelievable.

All those who got in the way of his enjoyment of food became Min Sung’s enemy.

He wasn’t going to surrender to such enemies.

One player swung his sword at him, but Min Sung used his shield to block it out.

Kaboom!

Along with the sound of thunder, Min Sung’s sword exerted great force and slashed the player’s body.

He then swung his Gungnir toward the remaining 3 players.

Kaboommmm!

The magical force that Min Sung used on the 3 players ripped them to shreds before they could do anything.

In a short span of time, the 5 Beatrice players died, and when Baron Cross saw that, he stared blankly with a stiffened body.

Baron Cross had no idea a novice player would defeat all 5 of the guild players.

And he didn’t just win; he completely ripped them to shreds.

How powerful did he have to be to take care of 5 guild players with just one sword?

Baron Cross dripped in sweat while looking at Min Sung.

Min Sung clenched onto his bloody Gungnir and slowly walked toward Baron Cross.

Baron Cross’ face was filled with fear.

“W-wait. If you kill me…”

Before he could finish, Min Sung swung his Gungnir.

Slash!

The Gungnir stabbed through Baron Cross’ body.

Min Sung then stepped on Baron Cross’ body and took out his GUngnir.

[You’ve killed PK players.]

[You’ve acquired +500 points.]

[You’ve killed the evil Baron Cross! You’ve acquired additional +200 points!]

[Honorable God has gifted you with 300 points.]

[Your honor increased by +10.]

[You are now able to use the shop.]

[You’ve acquired a special reward.]

[Your surprising growth is drawing attention from the Dionysus Gods.]

[You have been favorite 100 times.]

[You’ve acquired +1000 points for your number of favorites.]

[You currently have 2800 experience points.]

[Would you like to use the shop?]
