3) Emergence of a Bad Warrior
“Strip the walls of the enemies. If you can’t then step down immediately!”
“Fight. We will die here. For His Majesty!”
“I don’t want to. I don’t want my body to be eaten by demons. I’m going to run away!”
“Anybody who joins the Embinyu Church are blasphemers. Just kill them. We will implement the 27 new torture types on the Embinyu followers. Then we will put them out in the sun to feed the trees.”
“It is the demon. The demon from h.e.l.l that took my friend. Ohh, I’ve grieved since it happened. My friend’s head has probably been digested by now. He hasn’t repaid the money he borrowed from me. Of course, I might not survive this place but….”
The bronze giants were seriously attacking and destroying the walls of Dulmore Fortress. The fortress’s defenders were fighting the fanatics and monsters but there was an influx of attackers towards the fortress.
“G.o.d, why are you giving us so much suffering.”
The soldiers were locked in grief. It was impossible for the kingdoms to prevent the invasion of the monsters and demons. The elites of the Mapon and Beiner Kingdoms couldn’t persist.
Weed appeared with the Extermination Sword at that time. He slowly walked from a pa.s.sage connecting buildings in the fortress.
Kung! Kung! Kung!
The ground made a heavy sound every time he walked. The military fortress didn’t have wide pa.s.sages. So he felt very full.
In fact, it would be faster jumping in the air but there was no need to rush. And he wouldn’t look cool. A man’s pride couldn’t give up on looking cool!
The soldiers were panicked and astonished as they watched Weed. An immense stature with muscles born for combat and the Extermination Sword radiating flames. The brightness despite the darkness caused by the Gates of h.e.l.l and the rainclouds.
“What is that bald giant?”
The desert had stripped him of all his hair so he was bald. He had a handsome face and body but the lack of hair made him look wild. A male that gave off a bad and evil feeling!
“I see a lot of rice.”
He crashed onto the battlefield but moved slowly after that. Nearby, a giant spider from the Embinyu Church was catching humans in its web and eating them.
Weed walked up to it and grabbed one of the spider legs.
“Stay away! My sticky legs will make you unable to hunt for weeks.”
It didn’t matter how the large spider struggled or what it said! The giant spider was thrown hundreds of metres and squared the army members of the Embinyu Church.
He only used pure force, without any skills.
“Ah! Thank you for your help.”
The human soldiers caught in the web thanked him. Weed ignored the thankful soldiers and walked towards the walls. He honestly didn’t care if the soldiers were killed or not. He just didn’t want to wait until after the spiders ate them.
The soldiers fell back to the Dulmore Fortress. They didn’t dare attack since Weed would probably just kill their colleagues. Many had the good judgement and low morale to run away instead of fighting.
“How dare monsters of the Embinyu Church come here without my permission! The worst are those who don’t give experience or money!”
Weed grabbed and threw the monsters.
“Wahhhh, get rid of the enemies!”
The defenders of the fortress had their morale swell at the sight. However, there were dozens of places where the walls had collapsed so the enemies came in frequently. The archers of the Embinyu Church were also pulling their bows while aiming at the defenders.
Despite Weed’s efforts, there was an overwhelming amount of human deaths.
“I have to use my power properly.”
Weed leapt over rubble and climbed the walls. His large body was visible as he climbed the walls.
He grabbed the monsters on the walls and threw them at the Embinyu Army.
“He threw that heavy monster!”
The Embinyu priests and brainwashed guards were astonished at the sight.
Rock Echo that overwhelmed the battlefield! Weed used a strong voice to call the Embinyu Church.
“It is silly to fight the humans of the fortress! Come up to me. I will let you know what power is!”
A large explosion occurred at the same time there was a burst of light. A cry that lured the enemy. A barbarian was big and hulking so he had a very large voice.
“A wicked spell took us.”
The archers on the walls suddenly recovered their spirit. The brainwas.h.i.+ng spells of the Embinyu Church were broken by his cry.
“We will fight together.”
The archers announced their intention to cooperate and before the real battle started, Weed began to sing.
[Black clouds are surging
Weak characters trying to preserve the peace will be broken
I live in a deep, dark place under the ground]
The viewers popped into his head. In the past, Weed had sung songs strange lyrics. Even so, it gave the battle an epic feeling.
The Embinyu Army marching under the darkened sky had an atmosphere that would fit well with a song.
[I can’t do the laundry without feeling angry
The damp floors and wallpaper
The miserable, musty smell!
I hate rainy days the most
Waking up in the morning with a dense fog in my room
It is a nightmare to get rid of fungus in the middle of summer
Heating, heating, the h.e.l.lish cost of heating]
The song’s t.i.tle was !
Weed sung a song filled with his extremely angry emotions. The grievances of living in a bas.e.m.e.nt room. There was only a single futon, a small television and plastic cabinets. He remembered suffering while trying to pay the monthly rent to the landlord.
Other people were fighting with their friends or listening to their mother’s nagging. However, Weed had to hold his tongue or risk being kicked out by the landlord. He hadn’t yet achieved his dream of owning a house at that time. The cosy underground room that caused fear as well.
“I’ll kill you all!”
Weed’s original plan was to wait a little longer on the walls. The defenders of Dulmore Fortress were still alive so there was no need to leave early.
Van Hawk was also leading the undead so there was no need for Weed to jump into the battlefield. But his anger changed his plans.
Weed came running out of the fortress. He wielded his Extermination Sword in the midst of the Embinyu Army.
“Damage. Run away!”
More than 100 fanatics were turned to ashes. It was the same for the monsters of the Embinyu Church that besieged him. All those within the range of Weed’s attacks were burned to death.
“Die. Die! Die!”
|-Black Knight’s Strike!
An irreversible attack against the surrounding enemies.
Consecutive wide area skills that succeeded!
Weed was surrounded by a sea of fire. Giving monthly rent to lease a house wasn’t a bad thing.
However, he would occasionally watch enviously as the family of the landlord ate pork belly in the yard. He was accompanied by his pure hearted sister who wanted to eat the meat but they could only watch like beggars.
He also felt agitation when the boiler failed or the door wouldn’t open. A room that required a lot of repairs.
He had countless sad memories living under a landlord. He couldn’t remember the Pythagoras maths taught in childhood but remembered the exact name of his landlord.
“Undulating Flame Mark!”
His species had changed but he could still use the same skills.
Kwa kwa kwa kwa kw.a.n.g!
A series of explosions occurred in the surrounding area. Weed ran alone into the Embinyu Army. Approximately 3,000~4,000 people lost their lives.
Suddenly, the sound of faint screaming from the soldiers at the fortress could be heard. The river filled with silver had completely lost its strength so the monsters’ advance started.
100 flying demons flapped down and targeted Weed. They were cunning and pounced at the moment when Weed was distracted.
“Those who don’t follow Embinyu will be destroyed!”
The troops of the Embinyu Army didn’t fear death and continued advancing. Priests and magicians crossed the river. Their biggest goal was to take care of Weed.
“I have grasped his true existence. We must get rid of him for the sake of Embinyu’s aspirations.”
“All those faithful to Embinyu, he is our goal.”
The Embinyu Army focused on Weed. Their original mission was to destroy the fortress but now all the ranged attacks were hurled towards Weed.
“Wedge Blast, blow!”
“Beads of Cold!”
The magic attacks from the Embinyu Church flew towards Weed on the battlefield.
“Summon Another Sword, Absolute Defense, Close Eyes Tightly!”
He used his defensive skills!
Nodulle had learnt Close Eyes Tightly from a useless quest a while back. A flying sword defeated the magic in the air.
However, a large number of spells failed to break and they struck Weed’s large body. He received a carpet bombing of hundreds of magic attacks.
Weed was prepared for the shock and pain and closed his eyes.
He was thrown by a big shock but didn’t collapse to the ground. He had prepared his body but it surprisingly felt like he was being tickled! His health hadn’t even decreased by one tenth. The high priests Igrig and Motuls didn’t join the attack so he didn’t receive any major injuries.
Weed had a formidable level and skills and he could now display this ability after changing into a barbarian. Barbarians had a very high resistance to magic. In addition, the health that was reduced filled up very quickly! His recovery ability wasn’t like a troll but this much was tremendous.
Weed neatly ended his calculations.
‘A barbarian is indeed strong. I can feel a little rea.s.sured. Of course, it would be dangerous if this attack repeated a few more times….’
The flying monsters sensed that Weed was weakened and flew to him. It would be difficult if his health was reduced to the half way point.
After the dust subsided, Weed casually roared.
“Stupid b.a.s.t.a.r.ds! Is this the extent of Embinyu that you believe in?”
He moved quickly before the magic attack could fall on him again. He rushed to the place where magicians and priests were.
There were plenty of magicians and priests within the Embinyu Army. Normally there were a limited number of magicians in each kingdom. But the Embinyu Church had a number of magicians that could use the fanatics’ faith as holy power.
Sometimes priests or inquisitors would kill human soldiers in combat and be promoted.
“The popularity of these guys….”
Weed ran in a hurry. His large bulk was enough to tear up a monster and display tremendous strength but his size was also a disadvantage.
Even if chanting the spells took a little time, it was impossible to avoid hundreds of arrows fired at him. He threw his body towards the side that had less attacks.
“Catch him for Embinyu!”
“He must be captured. Skin him alive and place him in boiling oil.”
The dark knights jumped towards him. Weed punched them or slashed them with the Extermination Sword.
“I encourage you to come to me, trash of the Embinyu Church!”
The viewers felt their chests boiled as they watched Weed’s adventure.
In the meantime, they had been enjoying the fun and thrilling adventure but this time they prayed for his unconditional success. The outcome of the world depended on this adventure.
Those who weren’t fans of Weed didn’t want the Embinyu Church to grow any larger. In addition, the users had a large impression of Weed who went back to the past to stop the Embinyu Church causing a crisis on the continent.
The influential stations like KMC Media and CTS Media focused on making Weed into a hero.
“The peace of the continent is being endangered by the Embinyu Church. So far, Weed has come forever and resolve the problem every time the Versailles Continent was at risk. He has shown off his great sense of justice.”
“Weed has also developed the Versailles Continent quite a bit. In particular, his contribution for the production and art occupations is quite large.”
The influence of the broadcast was so huge that there was an obvious change in the children of the families watching.
“I would like to become an adventurer like Weed!”
“I want to be live nicely like an artist. And marry an orc male like Karichwi.”
Weed’s popularity was like a character in a fairy tale book. A human defeating monsters with an ice dragon and wyverns.
Yellowy helping out in the fields, Goldman handling money and a hungry heroine eating noodles. These were cliché but popular developments. Anyway, the viewers didn’t want to see Weed defeated by the Embinyu Church.
“Today my heart is so nervous that I can’t eat chicken.”
“I’m not in the mood for pizza.”
The ratings continued to hit unprecedented records. The stations focused on Weed and abandoned the Hermes Guild’s war to secure the continent. In a sense, Weed was recognized as the last remaining hero of the continent.
And Weed was now partic.i.p.ating in a quest that had the highest probability of failure.
“Ah, why did he recklessly rush out of the safety of the walls?’
“He is sweeping everything away. How cool.”
Viewers felt uneasy.
The future of the world would be divided into two depending on the result of this adventure. The Hermes Guild would either unify the continent or it would be destroyed by the Embinyu Church.
The enemies gathered around Weed.
“Bring it on. I will smash all of you!”
He finished off hundreds of enemies rus.h.i.+ng at the same time.
“Embinyu b.a.s.t.a.r.ds, do you only have this much? You are far from destroying the continent!”
He provoked the temper of the enemies. The dark knights, fanatics and monsters clung to him. The magic attacks of the enemies exploded all around him.
|-Health is decreasing.
Current health remaining is 68.7%.
It wasn’t a serious injury but he was surrounded by numerous enemies. He fought for a long time in the middle of enemy territory. The recklessness of a hero trying to save the world!
The soldiers at Dulmore Fortress had a greater change of preventing the invasion the more Weed played with the enemies. The demons emerging from the Gates of h.e.l.l and the Embinyu Church focused on Weed so the charge to the fortress had decreased.
Weed grabbed the monster’s head and threw them into the air.
The lightning bolt hit the monster instead of him. He flung the enemies towards magic and arrows whenever there was the chance. Sometimes he would throw the monsters towards the dark knights and roar.
“Weak. Too weak to become my food. Come towards me en ma.s.se!”
He was the most intimidating human on the continent. He was alone against an army from the Embinyu Church.
But his mind was constantly calculating coldly.
‘The magic attacks have hesitated a little bit. They are preparing something big.’
A simple ice bolt would be hard to scratch the body of a barbarian. He realized that the magicians of the Embinyu Church were preparing a strong spell. And the priests used sacrifices to curse Weed.
The combat power of knights and warriors was overwhelming. But they had the worst resistance against curses and spells from shamans, warlocks, witches etc. Their strong power would weaken, defense would break down and their body movements would become slow and heavy.
The priests of the Embinyu Church who could use high level curses were the worst enemy for a warrior. It was the reason why dungeons with evil priests were the most unpopular hunting ground. The group would meet death without the presence of a priest. This was the reason why he couldn’t say which side was better in a battle between a warrior and priest.
‘Some time has pa.s.sed since the last attack. It will soon be time.’
Weed moved within the bulk of the Embinyu Army. He trampled, beat and threw them! He got rid of dozens of enemies with each step.
Fortunately, his bulk was so large that he could easily move through them.
-A really good looking human.
-I want to eat him, kuhelhelhel.
-That head is mine. I will bit his head and eat his brains.
Demons cried out as they flew down. Despite the hectic situation, Weed didn’t lose his spirit. More than 1,000 demons had already pa.s.sed through the Gates of h.e.l.l into this world.
“We can’t let him stop the priests.”
The dark knights frantically tried to stop his rapid breakthrough. But the Embinyu Church was scattered around.
There were troops besieging Dulmore Fortress and the rear was fighting the undead led by Van Hawk. Weed had a huge force surrounded him but they were those swept along earlier by his rapid breakthrough.
‘I need to get a little closer. Some damage can be ignored.’
Weed ignored his declining health to boldly trample through the enemies. His large bulk was. .h.i.t by arrows, magic and the spear of the knights. A situation where he was. .h.i.t in many places.
|-Current health remaining is 51.3%.
This is the result of the joint damage.
The message window flashed. This was a significant crisis when considering the Demons of h.e.l.l. The senior priests and magicians of the Embinyu Army were still 1 kilometre away.
Weed’s increased size meant he could move quickly but tens of thousands of enemies were hindering him. Curses, various monsters and bronze giants also gathered to attack and stop him.
Therefore Weed could see that the priests and magicians were on the verge of completing their magic spell.
“Now. Earth Shaking!”
He stepped on the land with his right foot.
A barbarian’s unique skill.
|-The skill Earth Shaking has been used.
Current health remaining is 87.46%.
Using the skill has consumed 7.1% vitality.
You can temporarily use excessive force. Maximum strength is reduced by 10% for 15 minutes.
Weed stomped on the ground and there was a horrible sound as it split open. Then a vibration spread through the ground as it sloshed like moving water.
The dark knights fell and were swept back and forth while monsters rolled around after losing their balance. The 20 metres tall bronze giants staggered and crushed numerous soldiers.
A skill that maximized the increase in strength caused by Sculptural Destruction! Apart from Weed who was the only one standing, the surrounding areas were turned into a mess.
“Uuuugh, this can’t happen.”
“This destructive power is due to the grace of Embinyu.”
However, the number of deaths was limited to the fanatics. It was an exceptional skill so it wasn’t to blame for the effect and damage. The shaking of the earth waned the further the distance was.
But the magicians and priests in the distance either fell or jumped up in the air to avoid the shaking of the ground. It was natural for the magic they were preparing to be interrupted.
Weed’s eyes shone as he seized the opportunity.
He ran towards the fallen enemies in the centre of the Embinyu Army. A place where the important magicians and priests were! The dark knights hurriedly got up from the ground.
“It is impossible, you savage!”
The knights had no way to block his skills. They were powerhouses ranging from level 300~400 but they fell with one punch from Weed. He pierced towards the senior priests of the Embinyu Church in a straight line.
“Riot of Black Wind!”
High Priest Motuls quickly chanted a spell.
Out of nowhere, a flock of crows surrounded Weed. It was intended to make it difficult to attack the magicians and priests. Weed saw nothing except for thousands of crows.
“This isn’t the method. End of the Day!”
He used all the mana he conserved for the Sun Warrior’s strongest skill. His current location was very deep inside the Embinyu camp. Therefore, he would cause some damage even if he couldn’t see the senior priests.
The senior priests used protection magic to guard against the hot fire. But those too close to the flames were turned to ashes.
The dark knights and magicians near Weed also unfortunately lost their lives. He caused considerable damage in the centre of that Embinyu Army but that didn’t mean he could feel at ease.
The fallen priests, magicians and monsters of the Embinyu Army were all gathered together. There were also flying demons in the sky who were using the chance to come closer.
“A poisonous rat has come inside!”
“He came here thanks to the grace of Embinyu. Those who have been victimized, rejoice. Today our work will be to kill that huge obstacle!”
Motuls and Igrig encouraged the troops.
Weed had used up all his mana and was isolated in the heart of the Embinyu Army.
