Kill The Hero – Chapter 102
“Are you serious? Kim Woo-jin coughed up blood and collapsed?”
Sam Oliver nervously answered the asian man’s question.
“Obviously, it wasn’t my fault.”
“This is such a headache. I have to get the information from him somehow…”
It was then.
A wolf appeared in front of them.
The wolf was quite large as it was over 2 meters in length.
When it discovered Sam Oliver and the asian man, it stopped.
It bared its fangs at them.
It’s teeth were rather startling as they were reminiscent of a shark’s teeth.
This was a Sawtooth wolf.
It’s appearance made the body of the asian man freeze. He was only a torture expert who was only level 14 at best.
But Sam Oliver was different.
As soon as he saw the Sawtooth Wolf reveal its teeth, he threw a spear in his hands at it.
The spear shattered the head of the wolf before flying out of its tailbone.
The asian man shouted in Japanese without realizing it.
Sam Oliver frowned slightly at the appearance of the unexpected language.
The asian man shut his mouth quickly as if realising his mistake.
The atmosphere quickly became awkward.
“…let’s go quickly.”
Afterwards, Sam Oliver recovered his spear before speaking to the asian man.
As he heard this, the asian man nodded silently.
However, the awkward atmosphere stayed around them without any signs of disappearing.
It was only when they arrived back at the main camp that the awkward atmosphere finally disappeared.
It wasn’t possible for the awkward atmosphere to stay when they were faced with 10 dead bodies.
In reality, the Messiah Guild was an untouchable area.
A topic so sacred that even the world’s most feared terrorist would not dare to lay their hands on the Messiah Guild.
So the best place for those who had animosity and dissatisfaction toward the Messiah Guild were dungeons.
One of the missions of the Hunting Dog, Kim Woo-jin, was to deal with situations like those.
Of course, in the course of that, sometimes there would be some unexpected situations.
For example; if you had to survive against 98 players with 2 or less players due to an unexpected betrayal.
‘Since I already got rid of 10 people, only 29 remain.’
For Kim Woo-jin who had survived such an incident, this was pitiful.
Moreover, this situation was not unexpected.
‘They hunted a lot more than I expected.’
If there was anything that Kim Woo-jin didn’t expect, it was that the members of the Frontier Guild and the others who had entered the dungeon to kill him, had killed quite a large number of monsters.
It was a good thing for Kim Woo-jin.
‘I can finish much faster than I expected.’
Kim Woo-jin, who stood in front of the corpses had this thought before immediately sacrificing them to summon skeletons.
It was an Orc that became the first offering to summon a skeleton, followed by a Goblin.
The familiar Orc and Goblin Skeleton Soldiers had glistening eyes as they awaited their battle instructions.
At the same time, Kim Woo-jin noticed the body of a Sawtooth Wolf.
‘I’m finally getting a new type of skeleton.’
Skeleton Soldiers could be made out of whatever Kim Woo-jin hunted.
However, not everything could be sacrificed.
There were size and race limits. (TL: aren’t the orcs like…huge?)
In simpler terms, only monsters that could walk bipedally like humans could be sacrificed.
Werewolves could be used as a sacrifice, but normal wolves couldn’t be used.1
[Creating Sawtooth Wolf Skeleton Soldier.]
The way to solve this limitation was for the skill to reach the transcendent rank.
The moment the skill reached the EX rank, he became able to make anything into a Skeleton Soldier.
Of course, for him to sacrifice a huge monster to create a Skeleton Soldier, it required an enormous amount of Magic Power and to maintain it required a similarly large amount of Magic Power.
Even if it was a boss monster, there was no reason to turn it into a Skeleton Soldier if you considered the cost.
‘Now I can use Pharaoh’s Power properly.’
The result of the combination of the transcendent ranked Skeleton Soldier skill and the Pharaoh’s Power skill was the King of the Undead.
This ability was now being demonstrated by Kim Woo-jin.
In an instant, a group of thirty skeletons had appeared before Kim Woo-jin.
Looking at his new group of soldiers on four legs instead of two, Kim Woo-jin pulled out the Grim Reaper’s mask from his inventory.
‘Let’s get this over with quickly’
The hunt had officially started.
“How did this happen?”
“Wasn’t it over?”
“Who did it? Was it Kim Woo-jin?”
As they looked at the 10 bodies before them, the other 29 players discussed among themselves.
The conversation didn’t show any signs of stopping.
“So what should we do?”
“We have to catch him.”
“Do you even know where he is?”
It was only because he couldn’t answer a question that silence fell.
Eventually, as the conversation had ended, they all turned their eyes to Sam Oliver who was the leader of the operation.
But Sam Oliver was just as confused.
‘How did this happen?’
No, Sam Oliver was more confused than all the rest.
‘How did 10 people…’
The 10 who died weren’t 10 ordinary players, but talents that were recognized by the Frontier Guild.
Even Sam Oliver himself couldn’t guarantee his chances of fleeing much less winning in front of these 10 players.
However, Kim Woo-jin had managed to kill these 10.
The scene was also quite neat with no signs of a great struggle.
He made the best possible choice after repeated warnings from his instincts.
Gather everyone together so they could take care of each other.
“Sam, I think you need to give some orders to everyone,”
Then under the reminder from his subordinate, Sam Oliver did not hesitate to pull an item out of his inventory.
It was Percival’s Spear, an item that Sam Olver only used in extremely dangerous situations.
“Everyone, prepare for battle. Be extremely careful.”
It was at that moment.
“Something is coming!”
Everyone turned once they heard the yell.
Then thirty creatures entered their sights.
When the Skeleton Soldiers arrived, the players became nervous and the atmosphere became a mess.
In any case they didn’t have to think about anything else when faced with something that had obvious hostility toward them.
Sam Oliver also didn’t worry too much any more.
“Prepare for battle!”
From now on, all he had to focus on was crushing all the enemies that came.
“Tanks at the front! Healers in the middle! Mages you attack from the back! End this battle as soon as possible”
That was why Sam Oliver gave the other players their orders.
Heavily armored men formed a line at the front and behind them were healers that were also covered in some armor. At the back of them all were the mages who were preparing to cast their spells.
And at the forefront, stood Sam Oliver.
While everyone was staring at the skeletons ahead of them, they completely forgot the 10 bodies behind them.
So naturally, when the bodies exploded, there was no way they could react properly to it.
Screams came from the back.
And from the front the sounds of weapons making contact with each could be heard.
At that moment, everyone had a scary intuition.
They couldn’t win this battle.
Only Sam Oliver had a different idea.
He was completely confident that they would win this battle even if there were a couple sacrifices.
‘With the Spear of Percival these skeletons are nothing!’
The spear in his hands had him convinced.
And Percival’s Spear indeed had what it took to give him that confidence.
That was the reason.
“You want to go against the skeletons?”
Kim Woo-jin was the one standing in front of Sam Oliver, not a skeleton.
This thing about the requirements for skeletons feels like it was conjured up by the author during this chapter and wasn’t planned before because KWJ had many opportunities to get other bipedal monsters. For example the Black Werewolves from Lee Jin-ah’s test or from the Horned Fox’s Dungeon. It was really confusing for me and made me wonder if I’d read wrongly.
Even if there is a limit set so that if he reaches his max number of summons he can’t swap one for another or something, he was still quite capable of saving a slot for another bipedal summon, especially when you consider the fact that he almost always knows what to find in the dungeons.
…welp, that’s been another long rant by Seven…I really gotta learn to stop (|||_~) )
