I heard that the mercenary guild in Karas Village was almost small enough to have barely reached the minimum members, but I don’t know how small it is when I didn’t even got inside.
The first thing that stood out was the many tables and chairs reminiscent of pubs.
Apparently, they sell simple food and alcohol, but even in broad daylight, many mercenaries sat drinking and making noise.
Next, my eyes turned to the bulletin board where mercenaries were looking at the contents of the request.
Even if the village of Karas was in the countryside, the faces of mercenaries looking at the bulletin board were more serious because there were common quests given by the guild itself, the country and the lord.
I headed to today’s destination, two women in neat uniforms smiled brightly with the looks of from the bank.
Even though I didn’t introduce myself yet, they already knew my name.
Being a disciple of Gordon and as an outsider, I became quite a celebrity in the village of Karas.
So without thinking weirdly, they smiled and accepted my greeting.
“Hello, I’d like to register as a mercenary and get a party member to join me on a free hunt.”
“Okay. Then please show me your ID card for registering mercenaries first.”
At the request of the staff, I opened my magic ID card.
[Kaelon Kingdom ID]
Date of birth: 25 May 1076.
Criminal history: None
The villagers did not respond, but the mercenaries who were drinking in the back gave a small exclamation and whistled.
This is because the magic ID card itself is an artifact that is transplanted into the body, so the value was considerable high and precious.
The female employee, who has checked my abilities, looked slightly surprised, but soon recovered her expression and completed the paperwork.
“Then let’s move out for a meeting with the branch manager.”
And coming to my side, she led me to the second floor.
“Manager, I’m with a new a guild member.”
“Come on in.”
Entering the branch manager’s office located at the end of the second floor, a bald middle-aged man with obvious signs of annoyance was smoking a pipe.
The receptionist were very friendly, but the Branch manager was the opposite.
It’s been a long time since I came in, but he didn’t even look at me.
He didn’t look at me until he he finished the whole pipe.
“Huh? Who do we have here? You’re Gordon’s disciple.”
“I thought you’re another young man from a far village that had come in vain.”
He grinned loudly at my hazy greeting and offered me a seat.
“I didn’t expect Gordon’s student to register… as a mercenary?”
He questioned how I came here to register as a mercenary.
“I’m a hunter.”
“I’ve heard you go into the woods alone once a week and hunt monsters. I heard you’ve been hunting orcs lately.”
“Yes, it’s been pretty easy since I learned magic.”
“Oh, yeah. You completed 1st circle in just three days, right?”
As expected, rumors spread quickly because it is a small town.
Maybe it’s because Gordon’s been bragging all over the place.
“Now I have also the 2nd circle.”
In my reply, he blinked silently and responded with bewilderment and asked again.
“Did you learn magic and become a 2nd circle mage in just a month?”
“It’s been six weeks as of today. I haven’t mastered the 2nd class magic yet. Though I already learned the main magic.”
“Was magic that easy to learn? Can you show me the evidence?”
I accepted because it wasn’t a difficult request, I cast a 2nd class spell.
Shield, Fire Arrow, Bind, etc.
I showed five magic tricks in a row.
“Arrow magic is fully attributable and binds with curse magic are also available.”
1st or 2nd circle wizards are called probationary wizards, but they aren’t in the same league, so they should not be treated the same way.
Obviously, 1st Circle magic alone brings a significant increase in combat power, but 2nd Circle magic is given destructive power and defense magic can be used in earnest.
Thanks to this, I heard that even a 2nd Circle wizard receives considerable treatment in the mercenary guild.
“As expected, Gordon didn’t accept outsiders as his disciple for nothing.”
“I was lucky.”
“I can’t throw out a man like you. I’ll give you an intermediate level mercenary.”
Unlike entry-level mercenaries who can only carry swords, they need proven skills to become the intermediate level.
My current skills are ambiguous to become a senior (Sword Expert, Three Circle Mage) and fairly high level of ability to be an intermediate.
I nodded my head without disagreement.
“Come to think of it, you have Slaughter, didn’t you?”
Afterwards, an unnourished chatter came and went, and it was not until about 30 minutes later that I could be released from him.
“Come to the branch manager’s office at any time, Gordon’s disciple is welcome anytime.”
I didn’t do anything, but I already feel tired already.
I came back to the pub inside the mercenary branch.
“Then I’ll help you arrange the party. Is there anything unusual?”
“There’s an Orc village inside the Forest of Peace, and I want to fight it down.”
“Well, not many people want to go to the Forest of Peace. Because there’s a risk of surprise…….”
