A bandit hideout located on a remote mountain road.
There are not many people left there now, and Roan looked at the girl opposite him.
Facing Roan was a gray-haired girl holding a thick book in her arms, with a faint smile on her face.
The name of the girl Roan is facing is Euthenia High Lost.
She was the apostle of God who made Roan a servant of the Evil God.
But she was also the one who had called the meeting to this place today.
At Euthenia’s request, only two people remained in this place, her and Roan.
Roan looked at Euthenia with a wary gaze when she came out of hiding.
“What is it that you mean to talk about”
“I received a oracle from the Great One yesterday.”
“A oracle That’s amazing.”
Euthenia’s body trembled a little as she spoke out about the oracle.
For some reason, the middle of her forehead looked red and swollen.
Had she fallen on the floor last night by any chance
Such thoughts crossed Roan’s mind for a while.
However, Roan quickly shook off the useless thoughts and waited for Euthenia’s next words immediately.
“The Great One wants to entrust you with an important task.”
There is one important task entrusted to you from today onwards.”
“What is it all about”
Roan felt his heart beat faster when he heard the words of Euthenia, who said an important mission.
The girl in front of her is an apostle of God.
Her words practically represented the will of the God she served.
The great being who watches over them wants to entrust him with some task.
Roan stood straight to listen carefully to the task that would be given to him.
Soon, with Euthenia’s calm voice, the details of the task Roan had to carry out were heard.
You are from this day onwards an archbishop in the service of the Great One.”
“Did you say archbishop”
It is a role in which you are responsible for listening the Great One, as well as conducting important ceremonies.”
“I dare not to hold such a position…”
It was a post given to the highest priest with jurisdiction over each region ….
In fact, even if the Roan had been given full authority over these areas, it would be a no-brainer..
Of course, this proposal did not fall to Roan for no reason.
As Roan could see, there were still no such forces in the cult.
Feeling under pressure, Euthenia added the following words to Roan.
“This is not a position that is given to you without any conditions.”
“Of course it is.
“So instead, you have to expand the influence of the Church around here in good faith.”
It was as Roan had expected, after all.
Having just put Roan in an exceptional position, he was told that he had to grow the forces to be worthy of him.
He had been given the honor of being archbishop of the Church of Nothing, a daring challenge.
Under any other circumstances, Roan would have rejected this proposal outright.
But now, a miracle of God was vividly present before Roan’s eyes.
It was also a miracle in the name of an apostle.
With an apostle with enormous magical power in front of him, Roan had no chance of rejecting the proposal.
“So it means that we have to grow the Church’s power,” he said.
“I know it is difficult.
So that person, including me, promised to give a lot of support.”
“May I ask what kind of support exactly”
“First of all, I am going to teach the content about rituals.”
What Euthenia promised Roan was to teach him about the rituals that are offered to the divine.
In other words, she told him not to neglect the offerings.
It was natural for Warlocks to offer the lives.
It was the reason why the Warlock’s magic power grew stronger as they built up their own karma.
Until now, he had not been able to do this frequently because he had hit the limits of his abilities.
But it was a different story if the forces supported him.
Furthermore, the sense of offering was also a channel of direct communication with the great beings.
If he could perform the rituals periodically and catch the eye of the great beings, he might one day bestow his Grace on Roan.
“The content about rituals… You want me to proceed with a separate ritual.”
After all, Roan is a good-natured person.”
“You are too kind.”
“And the next promised support is…”
“And the next support…”
Euthenia lifted the book with a chuckle.
Holding a thick book in her arms, Euthenia got up from her seat.
As she rose from her seat, Roan followed her.
Euthenia looked at Roan as she stood up from her seat and said.
“You will know what the next support will be when Roan proceeds with the offering ceremony in person.”
“Eh What does that mean exactly”
“It’s just as I said, literally.
If you directly carry out the ritual of offering you learnt from me, I’m sure the Great One will answer you.”
That was the end of Euthenia’s story.
Having finished the conversation, Euthenia exited the hideout with leisurely steps.
Roan looked dazedly at the door of the building through which Euthenia had exited.
The last topic she brought up was one that even Roan couldn’t understand.
“An ritual of offerings….”
In order for the ritual ceremony to proceed, sacrifice are needed.
It appeared that after being taught about the ceremony by Euthenia, Roan needed to prepare the sacrifices required for the ritual ceremony.
In other words, if there were not a sufficient number of sacrifices, Roan would have to move in person.
After opening all of his palms, Roan immediately began to fold his fingers one by one.
Roan sighed as he recalled all the numbers of slaves he had locked up in the prison.
“I’ll have to go in person to fulfil the numbers by all means.”
* * * * * *
Several days have passed since he received the gift from Euthenia.
Perhaps it was because of the hectic time that had passed.
I have been able to spend quite a bit of spare time on the holidays, which I haven’t had in a long time.
Of course, I had more time than usual, but at best I was able to devote a little more of that time to games.
The best friend of the modern man is the smartphone, no matter what anyone says.
It has become our partner in life, or so I would say.
Nowadays, it would be difficult for anyone to dream of a life without a smartphone.
I too could not escape that fact.
“Don’t tell me you sent me another magic book today”
Upon logging into the game, I first clicked on my inventory with expectant fingers.
It was to check the offerings just in case.
Not surprisingly, the list of items in my inventory was much the same as before.
It hadn’t happened while I was gone, with Euthenia sending magic books and so on.
I kept opening and closing the empty inventory, thinking that perhaps there was a lag.
Still, the inventory never produced an item in case it did.
“Yes, that s right.
Magic books wouldn’t come in every day.”
My feeling was that I would have liked Utania to send me one magic book a day, but unfortunately such a thing seemed to be impossible.
It was quite a dumb expectation.
If I say so myself.
If you just connect to the game, you can’t expect to have a magic book in your inventory every day.
Who would pay for such a game
At least it would not be a positive part of the game’s pay-for-play concept.
After giving a glance of regret once, I looked at the shop button located in the top right-hand corner of the screen.
“Is it by any chance still under maintenance”
I stare alternately at the insufficient inventory and the shop button.
The was under inspection only recently, but the probability that it was still being inspected seemed low.
The monthly salary is also just in the bank account.
Ten quick gacha pull would fill up the poor inventory with suitable items.
Should I go for it or wait
After a few moments of thinking about it, I made my decision and touched the button on the shop.
The screen switched to the shop page and a new message floated to the bottom of the screen.
– Skills extended.
– You have acquired the .
– You can now use paid goods to purchase the contents of the shop.
The messages that surfaced one after the other were unexpected.
The level of the skill has increased.
It even called it Lv.
MAX 2, a completely understandable level of strangeness.
I was astonished at the sudden growth of the Gacha Shop.
“What the hell How can this suddenly go up It hasn’t even leveled up yet!”
The shop’s level had grown separately, even though it hadn’t even been leveled up.
And what was even more astonishing was that the price of the 10 times Gacha pull, which had previously cost 69900 Won, had gone up again.
10 times for 79900 won.
It was a whopping 80,000 won.
The amount charged was even more expensive than before.
An empty smile broke out from my mouth as I looked at the mess.
“It really is… a legendary game in many ways.”
Shops evolve on their own without the player’s consent.
Furthermore, it was impossible to even shop before it evolved.
What game in the world could showcase such a beautiful billing structure
It was natural for me to be worried as I looked at the price, which was already at 80,000 won before I knew it.
80,000 won is not a small amount.
With that kind of money, I could have ordered food delivery many times.
“80,000 won With this money, how many chickens”
As I was calculating the price of the chicken, my gaze turned to the TV news program that was on.
The news was just talking about chicken.
It was a reporter pointing with his hand at statistical data on chickens, with a large floating picture of a chicken behind him.
The data presented was mostly about the recent increase in chicken prices.
– “Recently, due to a series of food price increases, chicken suppliers have decided to increase chicken prices.”
– “Along with that, the delivery agencies have declared an increase in delivery costs…”
“80,000 won is well worth trying to return it, isn’t it”
There seemed no need to worry any further.
I clicked the gacha button straight away.
With a familiar touch, the gacha outcome items began to display on the screen, one by one.
– [Hard iron sword].
– [Stylish tunic].
– [Sharp iron sword].
– [Sponge cake].
– [Steel shield].
– [Sponge cake].
– [Sponge cake].
– [Hard iron sword].
– [Magic Sword – Ednos].
Most of the output items looked similar to the last time.
Except for one item.
[Magic Sword – Ednos].
My gaze naturally fell on the item that was alone and shining with a sparkling light.
The last item I could see of was this one, with a purple halo emanating from the background.
