Regressor Instruction Manual - chapter 173
“The sacrifice of Little Rock must not be in vain!”
“Perhaps it is the cause of the monster wave.”
“There is a high probability that it’s happened because of that baby, only now it can be explained. The beginning of the monster wave was clearly that howling…”
Kim Hyunsung flew from wall to wall, steadily arranging the monsters just like a god of war.
“Yes. I never thought I would rank up this fast.”
Not surprisingly, many troops were impressed by Little Rock, one of the guilds representing Castle Rock. One by one, they echoed my words.
“Huh… They’re crazy guys. It is not illegal to bring in monster eggs, but it’s still taboo. I knew they were doing illegal things in the first place, but I didn’t think they were stupid enough… At this point, I feel like those damn guys died too honorably…”
“Do not let the sacrifice of Little Rock be in vain!”
“Kill these dirty cubs, you bastards!”
What I had only been imagining had come true.
I couldn’t deny Cha Hee-ra’s words.
“Let’s protect our hometown!”
“Let’s protect Castle Rock!”
Cha Hee-ra appeared to have thought of the same thing.
As if he felt my magic, Jung Haitian also started to chant spells from a distance.
When my speculation was confirmed, my head started to ache. If we were to assume that the wave started because of a monster’s egg, we might have to deal with its parents.
‘I have to gain more experience.’
The moment the spell was completed, I could see a large hand descending from the sky to the First City Wall. The massive hand of the catalyst that had been reconstructed instantly continued to expand; of course, the magical power supplied from Jung Hayan constantly infused it with magic. With a ‘Kwaang!’ sound, the monsters in the First City Wall were immediately crushed.
The Red Mercenary member nodded as I made this assumption.
It was not my work, but it was obvious as to whose it was.
If I were alone, it would be difficult to do great damage to them, but with Jung Hayan’s magic, I could do a lot more damage than imagined.
I had no intention of doing the same for myself. It would be better for me to survive through dirty tactics.
I didn’t know why, but Cha Hee-ra was definitely following me.
Seeing his laughing while covered in intestines definitely made his look insane.
I could realize it was a stupid question even as I spit it out.
All of this is thanks to Song Jungwook!’
“Of course. Let’s focus our karate power on the First City Wall, where monsters are being concentrated! This is the last message from the Guild Master Song Jungwook!”
“I’ll come back.”
You couldn’t hear any experience bar rising, but it felt like hundreds of monsters were swept away by the karate that we had chanted just before. As a result, part of the wall collapsed, and the number of monsters that fell under it was quite large.
Unlike me, who could identify the battle situation with magic, ordinary soldiers busied themselves with dealing with the monsters in their way. Therefore, Song Jungwook’s incessant cursing of my name must’ve looked like a war cry to them until Jungwook had died. For them, Jungwook had died a beautiful death.
“How many times has this been, honey?”
This attribute made Cha Hee-ra the way he was. Considering that her original strength was already 97, his appearance in a state of increased attack power was like a god of war, and even that was not enough.
[A Lioness Faithful to Instinct.]
I could say the same about me, but our party was completely different from before.
“It’s a fact that we all know. Rather than that, you should control your facial expressions.”
Of course, she had never salad that.
“We must not let the will of the Guild Master Song Jungwook to protect Castle Rock in vain! Everyone! Let’s hold on a little longer. Nothing can be saved without sacrifice. Let’s fight together for the hero who lost her life while protecting Castle Rock! All forces, fire!”
After all, I also wanted to get rid of any possible Little Rock Guild survivor. At my words, karate and arrows descended upon the area.
“I think that one just now was good, but it appeared pretty fast… I think the experience points from Ito Souta were also counted. Basically, combat gives one the greatest experience, but usually, all actions give experience in one way or another. I’ll choose my new class after this wave is over. I’ll accumulate more experience that way, anyway.”
“Kim Ye-ri, too…’
she and Little Rock had become heroes of this pre-defense war.
In an instant, a huge hole filled up from within the mob of monsters trying to get past our defenses. Of course, the rest of them continued to run, yet they had also gotten inflicted by tremendous damage.
I was a little disconcerted to hear that Cha Hee-ra had to start moving now. Of course, it wasn’t bad timing, but it was evident that the situation was urgent.
At this thought, a smile formed on my face.
“This might be easier than I thought…”
“This is the fourth.”
Tears fell down my cheeks as I spoke this.
It was then that a man wearing a Red Mercenary’s insignia quickly approached us.
I knew how strong guys like Ito Souta were, but they were nothing compared to Hee-ra.
Some of them had managed to climb over the wall, but they were quickly taken care of. Even my own Blue party was doing the same thing.
‘They’ve grown a lot.’
“Thank you for the tip.”
“Huh? Oh. Did you take care of it?”
The roaring sound that rang through my ears sounded just like music. As much as I had to focus on reserving karate power, chanting flame-based karate was worth it. As a result, everything within its path burned into ashes, setting off an array of mini-explosions.
“In the guild warehouse of Little Rock, I found a baby born from a monster’s egg in a form I have never seen before…”
Upon seeing this, Cha Hee-ra spoke.
“It was a type of monster that I have never seen before. First of all, we are securing new recruits since we occupied the Little Rock Guild House… You will have to come and check it out yourself. Perhaps…”
his expression soon turned into an eager one.
Seeing Cha Hee-ra running to me suddenly, I had to admit that something was really wrong.
Little Rock seemed to have been crushed, too, but a small sacrifice was necessary for the cause. Eventually, the huge hand expanded and burst, causing an explosion.
he waved as if it was not a big deal and jumped down the wall. Just in case it wasn’t dangerous, I looked at the member of the Red Mercenary. she spoke right away.
There would be no effect without a cause.
A lot of karate was poured onto the battlefield, making it scary to calculate.
“The master often shows excitement when he concentrates… It would be better to say that he actually ends up losing his head.”
“Did you check where the eggs were found?”
‘I did you a favor, Song Jungwook.’
As I looked down at the bottom of the wall, I saw the monsters being ripped apart, just as I had expected. Though Cha Hee-ra calmly picked them off at first, his disposition gradually changed into something as similar as a beast’s. It was like he was never a human in the first place. The way he tore apart a medium-sized monster with his own hands made his look terrifying.
I thought the troops would get it together upon hearing my trembling voice, which spread out loudly due to voice amplification magic. Although some of them knew they could also die, Little Rock had not gone down running away.
“Is this a scandalous repayment?”
“Yes. As you said, we’ve got all the remaining items in the underground auction house. Besides, I also checked the cry of the monster we heard before.”
“Fuck… Shit!! Run!”
“No. There won’t be a big problem. First of all, it would be nice to go inside the city and check it out. I think I need to sort out a bit of appetizer before the main dish comes. Don’t worry too much. Now, we have to deal with just one more guy.”
[Some classes have been opened. Please choose the class you think you need.]
Considering that the higher ranking one got, the more difficult it was to grow, this was a great achievement. It seemed like I had managed to kill quite a few monsters, but I didn’t expect to get a new class this early. A smile formed on my face.
Our people were effectively driving away the monsters, though new ones kept appearing.
I was right.
“She prefers to fight alone.”
I knew that much. If one were to think about Cha Hee-ra’s attribute, the answer came quickly.
[Attribute: Bloodthirsty man (Heroic)]
[Intelligence stats are temporarily reduced to increase attack power.]
In the last moments of her death, the pre-defense’s troops got alive once again from archers who had fire in their eyes as if given a buff, to warriors who did not spare themselves, and to priests who constantly exuded divine power.
“Then, the monster wave….”
‘She is strong…
I didn’t know how she managed to cut off the neck of such a large monster with a single gun-knife slash, but she managed to do that and much more.
The only commoner at our party was Park Deokgu. However, even he was doing more than average, so I could feel the impact of such a well-trained and capable party on the battlefield.
“I interrogated the Little Rock warehouse manager, but she gave no clue other than finding it in a deep forest.”
It was then that Cha Hee-ra’s gaze, whose eyes seemed to have lost all reason, moved onto the wall.
It was not an illusion. his gaze had rested on me while holding a monster’s head in one hand.
I had to set an example too, so I also slowly started chanting a spell.
[Checking the unique characteristic of the Stud Cha Hee-ra.]
They probably hadn’t even heard Song Jungwook’s scream.
It was time to show the dirty monsters that filled the First City Wall how big Castle Rock’s united power was.
Of course, it was dangerous.
Even the kid was showing off her immense talent. Jung Hayan’s magic accurately hit the monsters, and Hwang Jeong-yeon assisted his as much as possible. Sun Hee-young focused on sprinkling his divine power in all directions.
