Out of the Information Guild, I looked up at the sky.
The dull gray clouds move quickly as if it will rain in any minute soon, and the damp wind makes the robe of the Royal Tower flap.
Although I was given trustable information by paying three platinum coins, my head was complicated, especially when I could met someone like myself a “dreamwalker” again, it was quite shocking to know that there would be a fight.
It was good to know it in advance, but if I meet someone else without knowing it, he’ll have a high probability of taking my life.
According to information, 12 teams, a total of 24 people, met, and 11 teams, excluding only one team, fought, and as a result 11 people were killed.
They met after making an appointment, but why would they fight and kill each other?
Was it a compulsory quest?
‘So, what about the two who didn’t fight each other?’
If this is really based on a quest, which might be the case, a quest to kill the other person may appear also those quest that doesn’t said so.
It was not easy to grasp the exact situation with only those information revealed.
For people like us, death on the Mu continent was not the end of the whole thing, but I cannot happily commit murder in any way.
Defeating monsters and killing humans were completely different things.
Naturally, if an inevitable situation occurs, I would need to swing the spear without delay, to save myself.
If this is the case, why did they let us see each other?
They’ve could just set a limit so we can’t meet in the first place.
Isn’t this very easy for a God?
I don’t understand why he is talking nonsense like a bridge connecting the world.
I want to make sure if the genre is Battle Royale or a simple survival?
I’m glad there are only a few people who could hurt me.
“Are you done with your business?”
Data from the information guild cannot be taken out and can only be checked on the spot.
So I’ve only written down important information in my notebook, and I’ll have to investigate through it while I’m on my way back to Karas village.
And how should I treat the others.
“Why are you out here?”
“I am always like this in this kind of day.
Others may think it’s dull, but I prefer cloudy days rather than sunny days.”
“We have similar tastes.”
Gordon also gave me a casual laugh, saying It look better on a cloudy day than on a Sunny day.
“That’s great. We can go back with this weather.”
“Do you mind if I don’t say hello to your cousin?”
“He is out of town.”
Me and Gordon met each other outside the Royal Tower.
Of the 52 surviving Seeker (Dreamwalkers), only eight have teachers.
There were also two teachers at Expert, who are said to be remarkable, including mine.
Chloe (first-degree informant) said there is a growing gap between those who have a teacher and those who didn’t.
There was no accurate target goal among the Dreamwalkers, but I could see that the unexpected quest to save Gordon was created by the temple to help us have a guide.
Imagining what it would have been without Gordon was awful.
If the quest had been carried out by the Dreamwalkers alone, it would have been quite difficult.
Thanks to this, the Information Guild also showed considerable interest on the teachers of the Dreamwalkers.
This is because they are not aware, about the system and quest happening between us.
“You want a luxury wagon to go in the Village of Karas, right? Please wait.”
In the transportation guild, we rented a luxury wagons with good drivers and sat side by side even though the seats were quite spacious.
Then the carriage shook with the drivers guide, and Gordon took out a 3rd class of books from his subspace as if he had not sat beside me for no reason.
“Well, let’s start with the lesson, shall we?”
Gordon’s way of teaching is quite Spartan.
They already have the fixed training hours, but they also conducted a one-to-one tutoring classes in the carriage just like that until they reached the mansion.
If I felt dizzy due to the vibration of the carriage, Gordon will use healing magic without hesitation.
Thanks to this, I was not able to take out my notebook from the information guild until it was time to rest after the two hours of class.
“You really don’t waste time.”
Gordon shook his head excitedly at me like that.
“Break time is literally break time. Why don’t you empty your head just for that time?”
Gordon’s side seems worried because I always had something to do except for sleeping time.
But I didn’t want to waste my time because I feel like I’m wasting every minute of my time on Mu continent these days.
I glanced awkwardly at the notebook grinning, while Gordon reacted disapproving.
Wait. Is it time?
Gordon tapped my shoulder in surprise as my expression suddenly became serious.
“I think I’ve realized something.”
At my enlightenment, Gordon fell in amazement and became excited
Then I shut my mouth and thought of many things.
Maybe Gordon think I realized something about magic, but it’s not.
“The deal between Dreamwalkers to meet on the Mu continent. A battle to kill each other, most likely a forced quest.”
Perhaps I have found a reason of the mysterious situation among Dreamwalkers.
Of course, time will always run and never stop.
Just because I have been to Earth doesn’t mean that the exact time in the Mu Continent would be equal, but on the contrary, it doesn’t mean that the time spent on Mu continent will reflect in Earth
I’m naturally going to spend the day following yesterday, and so are the other Dreamwalkers.
However, what should not be forgotten is that there would be time differences depending on the speed of quest progression each Dreamwalkers has.
Earth’s time is fixed.
While in the Mu continent, Dreamwalkers can return to reality within a day after a quick quest, or they can return to reality after eight days.
This is where the temporal contradictions of the two worlds arise.
Let’s say that ‘A’ and ‘B’, who are dream walkers met for the first time in real life.
The two promised to reunite on the Mu continent, and “A” visited “B.”
But what if A spent 30 days and B 40 days in Mu continent due to the difference in the speed of the quest?
‘In conclusion, B doesn’t recognize who is A.’
Because it is the 40th day story that B got to know A, not the 30th day in the past.
A promises to B in the future, and what A actually met is B in the past.
Also, if B met A in the past, the two should not have met for the first time in reality.
The “Time Contradiction” is what is actually happening
Comparing the world to a program, this was a bug.
If they don’t correct this error, the world’s timeline will be a mess.
The world will be divided into two parts: when B first met A on Earth and when B first met A on the 30th day of the Mu Continent.
‘So what they should do to eliminate the time contradiction between the two?’
I think the simplest solution is to get rid of one person.
God created a compulsory murder quest to solve this bug.
And to completely resolve the contradiction, the defeated must disappear not only from the Mu continent but also from reality.
That is, it is highly likely that those who died in the quest will not be able to open their eyes in reality.
‘It may be a wild guess. They are all my current imagination.’
But this was an incredible discovery.
Perhaps the time line between the two is the same between reality and the Mu continent.
[First to realized the contradiction of time.]
[Magic and Aura understanding increases dramatically]
[3rd Circle achieved]
[Increases Mana by 10.]
[Intelligence improves by 2.]
[You’ve achieved the beginning level of Aura expert]
[Improves Mana by 5.]
[Strength, Stamina, and agility improve by 2.]
A message window popped up in front of my eyes.
In addition, my 3rd circle was created, and the Aura point Was opened to fixed the chaos within me.
Content: Solve any abnormalities in the Dreamwalkers’ timeline.
Rewards: Highest Rewards Card, God’s blessing.
And as the unexpected quest popped up, I began to feel drowsy.
“Huh, 3rd circles.”
Gordon’s voice full of amusement.
Then I felt the world turning dark, so I didn’t reacted properly.
“Huh? Are you sleeping? Was this your side effect for increasing your circle…….?”
So I was sent back to reality facing an unexpected situation.
“If you make a mistake, you have to fix it on your own, why would you leave it to a human being? Should this really be a quest? Or you have a hobby on messing someone’s life?”
I woke up in the spacious new house, and not the usual apartment. I look at the organized new blanket.
Frankly, this was not a bad situation for me.
This is because, not only I achieved the beginning level of 3r Circle and Aura Expert just by realizing the Time Paradox, but also gained tremendous stats as a bonus.
When I pulled the curtains back, the gray sky I saw on the Mu continent and the clear weather without a cloud welcomed me.
I thought, as I walked on the terrace connected to the living room on the second floor. “Solve the contradiction of the timeline?”
There is one simplest way.
That’s to get rid of all the Dreamwalkers on the Mu continent except me.
Them and I have no point of contact in reality, so meeting for the first time on the Mu continent won’t make any differences.
In this case, the people who died before me are likely to be safe in reality.
And if everyone else kicks them out of the Mu continent, the Dreamwalker’s timeline naturally resolves the contradiction because I’m at the center.
Didn’t God solve it in a similar way?
I don’t know if it’s okay to remove all the bridges connecting the world, but it means it was okay because there’s no limit.
“But that’s the last option.”
I can force others to lose money for myself, but I am not psychopathic enough to decide killing others without thinking about any other ways.
However, if there is no specific method, this means that can this method can only be used.
I should try my best not to make such an extreme choice.
‘According to the data from the Information Guild, the gap between me and others has widened.’
Minor differences pile up and pile up to create larger and larger gaps.
I don’t think this is because I’m exceptionally good, but because of the right choice added to my luck.
[T Chemical 81,340]
[H Bio 16,260]
“I’ll have to withdraw them out.”
After enjoying the sun and looking at the stock price that I couldn’t check yesterday with my smartphone, I thought it was time to take out my stock from T-chemical.
T chemistry is close to the highest I know.
It would be better to take it out now and put it in H-Bio, which has tripled since then.
Roughly estimating the stock price, it seems to be about 8.9 billion won if all my T Chemical’s shares are sorted out at the right price.
This was a huge amount of money.
The amount tripled in just two months, making me, a recently unemployed person, to an emerging conglomerate with tens of billions of assets.
The problem is that even if I have a lot of money, it seems difficult to spend my life in ful peace.
