Even if I don’t lose anything now, I don’t know what penalty will happen later, so I need to understand what’s happening to me.
So first, I decided to investigate the quest, the central cause of these dreams.
What would happen if I didn’t complete the quest in my dream?
This is what the first investigation is about.
I asked the chief not to bother me the rest of my time during the investigation and learned how to use the spear at the guard, and after continuous practice, I was able to swing the spear fairly good
I’ve been swinging my spears for a week, so it’s only natural.
Yeah, for a week…….
I put a spear on the floor.
I swung in the backyard of the inn with the short wooden spear.
I didn’t wake up once in the past week when I didn’t complete the quest.
Now I only have one silver left.
If I do nothing to hold out, I can only stay at the inn for three more days, but it is right to think that I can’t go back to reality unless I complete the quest.
Holding out any longer was a waste of time even with the little money left.
It was time to step up.
“No choice then.”
Determined to hunt Goblin to complete the quest, I tightened the laces of my shoes made of leather and cloth and recently moved to the house of a carpenter.
“Are you here to pick up what you asked for?”
“Are you done?”
“Well, it’s not bad.”
In doing so, he handed me over several large and small wooden boards.
At first glance, one can’t tell what it’s for.
It was armor.
Wooden shields, wooden helmets, large wooden boards to protect ships and back, and small wooden boards to protect the wrists.
They are pieces of equipment that were quite sloppy.
Attack from muscular or even humans could damage it but Goblin’s attack could be stopped by a woodblock.
So even if it doesn’t look good, I’ve got these in place to increase my survival rates.
“Are you sure you don’t want to wear it all over your head and go into the woods?”
When asked by the carpenter’s worried question, I smiled, saying, “I’m fine.”
It was a commercial smile for me, but from his point of view, he shook his head and tried to stop me.
“No matter how important property is, people’s lives come first. The Forest of Peace is a place where monsters appear, not as much as Kent Canyon. It’s already been years since the villagers were banned from going there.”
“I already made some traps.”
I responded to the carpenter before I left with my luggage there to enter the forest later.
Typical areas where monsters appear in the village of Karas include the Forest of Peace and Kent Canyon.
Kent Canyon, which is preferred by mercenaries, is a place with good hunting efficiency over time because it has many monsters and has a high frequency of appearance.
In the forest of Peace, on the other hand, there are fewer monsters nesting in than in the canyon.
However, unlike grassland canyons, there are many places to hide, so there are more surprise attacks, and the problem was that it was not easy to notice the monster’s approach due to the severe limitations of vision.
“I know it’s dangerous. But I have an idea, so don’t worry.”
Difficulties in navigation and surprise attack are nothing to be worried about for me.
‘Cause I have a map function.‘
The map is marked with red dots when a monster approaches a certain distance.
So if I got my act together, I would have known it if they tried a surprise attack, and I wouldn’t have been beaten.
“This is it, Jihoon, you’re too stubborn. If you’re smart, you’ll do well on your own. But if anything happens to you, it’s not good for me or the chief.”
I paid a copper and leave behind a benevolent farewell.
Of course, monster hunting is not easy even if there is a map function.
So no matter how prepared I was, I couldn’t help but still be nervous.
‘I’d like to take it lightly, saying it’s just a dream…….’
I wondered if this was really a dream in the past few days due to excessive reality.
This situation I am facing is so realistic in itself, and believing it to be a dream seemed to be so naive.
Therefore, I decided to consider this phenomenon as another reality and be more careful.
I was forced to fight to get back to my original body, I didn’t actually want to fight if there was another way.
-The west gate of Karas village, the direction of the Forest of Peace.
“I don’t have the right to tell you what to do as an outsider, but I really don’t think this is right. If you need money, why don’t you look for work in town?”
I shook my head calmly at the chief’s suggestion.
“If it’s just about money, it’s better to follow what the chief says. But I have to go into the woods.”
The chief sighed, wondering if there was an important piece of luggage I lost in the woods.
“If so, wouldn’t it be better to make money and hire mercenaries after? If you work hard and pay me back, I can lend you one.”
The people of this town were very kind.
Considering what I’ve been through in Seoul recently, I think this place full of affection is a really good world to live in, even if there’s a lot to be desired.
But I can’t go along with the chief wanted.
My purpose was to complete the quest and return home.
“You’re so stubborn.”
Even after I decided to hunt Goblin, I need to try my best.
“In addition to the systematic quests, shouldn’t I complete the community quests like the chief’s request?”
I went everywhere thinking, but no other quest occurred.
I may only be able to complete one quest at a time.
A resident quest may also be from the system.
After all, the only way I can wake up is to hunt Goblin now.
“Then I’ll be back.”
So I crawled out of town despite the chief’s dissuasion.
Leaving him while I was waving my hands behind, I went down the hill where the Goblin had previously been chasing me.
And a little later.
Facing the woody nature, I swallowed my dry saliva.
[Forest of Peace]
My current location on the map has changed, and the sunlight has been blocked by trees, making the surrounding atmosphere darker.
I made my way carefully, looking at the map in case a monster appeared.
The only monster I can hunt with my current equipment is a Goblin.
The weapons are fine, but running into monsters above Goblin with this crude armor was a life-threatening situation.
So if Goblin hunting is easier than you think, I’ll make money out of it and get the proper gear.
The quests that will occur in the future are more likely to be more dangerous than this.
How long I’ve been walking in the woods?
I quickly hid as a red dot clearly appeared on the map.
The distance is about 200 meters.
I wasn’t sure if it was a Goblin because I couldn’t see the target exactly.
Nevertheless, I tied a rope that I bought and hung it on a branch nearby and laid spikes that penetrated deep into skin when a monster stepped barefoot.
The first monster to appear is Goblin.
I lured him by opening a small wooden can containing rabbit liver from the inn.
Whether the smell of blood reached him, the Goblin began to creep in.
I quickly sealed off the can of rabbit liver, wondering if I’d attract other monsters.
50 meters away from him.
And when the distance narrows down to 10m.
Even though I erased my smell with mud and grass, he could still smell the smell of humans and felt him flinch.
I made a quick dash, standing on the edge of a sharp, twinkling window, leaving no room for it.
A question that comes to mind here.
“Will a Goblin be able to fight back when an armed man comes at him?”’
For your information, the answer I thought about was to ‘run away.
All right, let’s go.
He freaked out as I wished and ran away.
The last time he smelled me and dragged his colleagues, it was clear that he judged that he couldn’t beat a human 1:1.
As small as he was, the monster Goblin was cautious.
Sadly, the place where Goblin fled was where I had just set up a trap.
The Goblin, with his legs receiving pain, fell forward because he couldn’t see the rope hanging between the trees.
And by falling, the Goblin was greeted by spikes everywhere.
Without delay, I thrust my spear into the Goblin, who fell to the ground.
