Kill The Hero – Chapter 77
[The Messiah Guild loses the Horned Fox’s horn!]
The atmosphere changed when it was announced that Isaac Ivanov had gained the fox’s horn over the Messiah Guild.
[Isaac Ivanov escapes like a fugitive in a diplomatic vehicle!]
[Will we continue to give Korean dungeons to foreigners?]
[Is it really okay to just give away our property like this?]
[It is urgent that we enact special laws for foreign players!]
Bad reports started to appear about Isaac Ivanov, who had cleared the dungeon and naturally, public opinion also shifted. [TL: oof it seems the public in this world are really easily swayed…]
-Who is this bastard Isaac?
-We gave Choco Pies to this bastard last time!
-We should go protest in front of the Russian Embassy.
In an era where foreigners were invited to handle local dungeons that couldn’t be completed, the price to be paid for touching the Messiah Guild rather than anyone else was beyond everyone’s imagination.
As the public was getting ready to really rip into him, Isaac Ivanov’s interview was released.
In the interview, Isaac Ivanov said directly.
[“If the Messiah Guild really needs it, I’m willing to donate the horn to them.”]
[Isaac Ivanov – “I’ve always been a fan of the Messiah Guild.”]
[Messiah Guild’s rising star Kang Young-ji says, “It would not have been possible to complete the dungeon without Isaac Ivanov.]
At the same time, Isaac Ivanov even revealed that he saved the members of the Messiah Guild once in the dungeon.
After that interview, public opinion changed once again. (TL: *cough* sheeple *cough*)
-The Needle Snake Hunter is a good person.
-Where can I find his address to send Choco Pies?
-If you’re Korean, please support Isaac Ivanov!
Kim Woo-jin, who saw all of this from his smartphone, was forced to make a bitter smile.
‘It’s obviously your actions.’
It was quite natural to say that Kim Woo-jin knew the Messiah Guild’s tactics better than anyone.
He knew that they would never let him keep the Horned Fox’s horn.
They would never let it go.
Did it matter if the Messiah Guild, who was enemies to anyone not on their side, weren’t in the position to choose?
‘They would’ve been prepared to start at any time.”
The media play was actually a very light beginning. The Messiah Guild was more than willing to use force to get what they want if they deemed it necessary.
The last card they would play in such a scenario, would be the Hunting Dogs.
The moment an item became the target of their Hunting Dogs, the item more or less already belonged to the Messiah Guild.
Though fighting against the Messiah Guild and keeping the item was possible, it was very very difficult. This is why Kim Woo-jin suggested they donate it.
The Messiah Guild’s aggression was only directed towards their enemies. And toward their allies, they couldn’t be more loving.
No, there were many who would willingly give their lives for their allies.
‘The calculation method toward allies changed a lot.’
Did Isaac Ivanov, who saved the members of the Messiah Guild, really want to donate the horn?
‘Of course, if you’re a hero, you must show the mentality of a hero.’
Above all else, the Messiah Guild was a hero.
They may be merciless predators toward their enemies, but as a hero, when dealing with your allies, one must be benign.
If they really wanted the Horned Fox’s horn, then they’d have to give a lot.
‘I wonder what kind of reward they will give.’
Now they just had to wait for the Messiah Guild’s response.
It was then.
A message arrived on his phone.
‘Just on time.’
The message was from Park Yong-wan.
-There’s a lot of speculation about Isaac Ivanov going around…
The first thing that greeted Kim Woo-jin as he entered Park Yong-wan’s office, was a news report coming from the big high definition TV.
“Oh, you’re here.”
Park Yong-wan welcomed him after the news report passed.
“Every day, all I hear about is this guy Isaac Ivanov. You don’t need me to explain who he is right?”
Kim Woo-jin nodded to Park Yong-wan who pointed at a chair in front of him.
The chair he pointed at was the closest to him among the many chairs that surrounded the table, it was a signal to say that Kim Woo-jin was the closest to him.
Of course, Kim Woo-jin knew what it meant.
‘But even the closest person would be left behind if he was considered useless at any time.’
For Park Yong-wan, even his closest allies were consumables that could be used and discarded at any time.
Despite knowing that, Kim Woo-jin didn’t mind the treatment.
Kim Woo-jin sat and Park Yong-wan immediately began to speak.
“I thought I valued you highly, but you’re even better than I thought.”
Park Yong-wan was very surprised.
‘What exactly did this guy do to make the Skull Guild try to find information about him so desperately?”
Before, the Skull Guild had been moving so secretly that Park Yong-wan couldn’t keep track of their movements, however now they were openly trying to find as much information as they could about Kim Woo-jin.
It proved that they were somewhat struggling to deal with him.
‘Well, that’s not important.’
It was a good thing for Park Yong-wan.
In the end, it meant that the Skull Guild was shaken by Kim Woo-jin, this meant that he could use Kim Woo-jin in the future to shake the Skull Guild again.
So Park Yong-wan didn’t pry too deeply.
“You kept your promise, so now it’s my turn to pay you back.”
Instead of talking nonsense, he decided to give an incredible reward, to set the stage for the future.
Park Yong-wan didn’t even wait for him to respond, instead he pulled out a skill page radiating gold light and handed it to Kim Woo-jin.
Kim Woo-jin received it.
When Kim Woo-jin confirmed what it was, he couldn’t help but make a surprised expression.
-Conditions: Emissary of the Underworld
-Required Level: 40 or higher
→Effect: Create fog using your blood.
Blood Fog. There was no better skill for Kim Woo-jin who used Blood Poison as one of his main skills.
‘This is better than I expected.’
It was also one of the skills that Kim Woo-jin considered very hard to obtain.
The golden glow signified that it was a skill at the unique level however the value of the skill couldn’t be seen unless it was used in conjunction with skills like Blood Poison.
In a situation where the Blood Poison skill was also hard to obtain, there weren’t many players who would use the Blood Fog skill, even if they obtained it.
“Let’s get down to business.”
Of course, Park Yong-wan wouldn’t give him such a skill simply as a reward.
“For the time being, we need to build our strength while being careful. Then when the time is right, we’ll make our move. Without warning.”
In order to use Kim Woo-jin even more, it was necessary to feed him, and Park Yong-wan didn’t try to hide it.
Kim Woo-jin also didn’t say anything about it.
He gave a simple answer, after which silence fell in the room.
The TV soon announced.
-Breaking News! The Messiah Guild has announced their decision. To summarize the content, they say that they appreciate the heroic heart of Isaac Ivanov and they will reward him greatly for his actions.
As he heard the breaking news, Park Yong-wan could not help but ridicule.
“They can keep their pride and just lose money is that it?”
Kim Woo-jin smiled and responded.
“That is exactly what it is.” (TL: the author just repeated the question here as a statementT^T)
With that, Kim Woo-jin rose and headed toward the door.
The meeting was over and no more conversation was necessary.
However, when he reached the door, Kim Woo-jin stopped.
“Could you save a dungeon for me?”
“There’s nothing I can’t do.”
The fact that Park Yong-wan gave him a level 40 skill in the first place meant that he wanted Kim Woo-jin to focus on leveling up.
“If you leave the bill after you purchase a dungeon from a broker, I will handle it.”
Park Yong-wan easily accepted Kim Woo-jin’s request.
Afterward, Kim Woo-jin bowed slightly and left.
