I Became A Mechanic - C82
A special place called the Hidden Dungeon or Hidden Peace existed within the gate or was being created by the system.
Many explorers were looking for hidden dungeons around the world. There were many famous explorers, but there were also many explorers who went missing, whether because they were forced to explore a place that did not fit the level or because they were trapped in a hidden dungeon.
The dungeon of the alchemist where Junwoo entered with Kim Deok-cheol was roughly the same.
If Junwoo had not solved the problem in the dungeon, Junwoo and Kim Deok-cheol would have starved to death there.
However, in the case of a hidden dungeon where you can’t get out, special rewards followed, and Junwoo also got a considerable reward compared to his level.
However, in most hidden places, the placenta was just to catch a monster and take the treasure in the end.
So, people expressed that they found a hidden dungeon in a cave in a specific terrain.
Reporters 1 and 2, who reported to Junwoo, also wrote to Junwoo that they had discovered a cave.
Yesterday, informant 3 had an incident, but Junwoo called informant 1 as if by surprise today, the next day.
“This is Aegis Guild Master Lee Junwoo. I plan to leave now. Are you at home?”
“Yeah? Yes Yes! It’s home.”
Informant 1 received auto-mails from both feet as a gift from Junwoo and was only waiting for Junwoo to contact him.
He wondered if he had forgotten, so all he did was send a text message after 10 days had passed.
“Actually, it’s right in front of my house. Come out.”
“To? Yeah! I’ll leave right away!”
Junwoo appeared in front of his house in a flying car.
Leon and Eumeria Yoshimura were sitting in the back of the car.
Since the passenger seat was empty, informant 1 opened the passenger seat door and entered.
“Hello, I was waiting for you.”
“Welcome. There is a reason for the sudden action, so please understand.”
“I understand. I understand.”
“I will ask for directions.”
“Yes, first, go through the Sokcho Gate and go down south.”
The flying car flew quickly towards the Sokcho Gate.
“Are there any discomfort in your ankles?”
“of course. It’s not uncomfortable at all. Is it like my body? Thank you.”
“I’m glad you didn’t have any discomfort. As you go, please tell me about the waterfall.”
“So… it was a cave inside a waterfall. A spear made of ice flew from afar and had more than 300 health. As I ran, I was hit with a spear again, and when I threw myself into a waterfall, both of my ankles were severed.”
If it were true, the monsters there were relatively high-level monsters.
He’ll have to go and check how much it is, but Junwoo wasn’t too worried.
The number of people on the flying car was a job group with a special rank or higher, and there was Leon and himself.
After going through the gate in a flying car for about an hour, he saw a cliff with a reasonably large and powerful waterfall.
Informant 1 pointed to the location with his finger.
“It was over there. A little bit from the top right.”
“Let’s go together.”
Five went into the waterfall and started climbing up, either against the wall or with a dagger.
Informant 1 went up with a face full of anticipation.
However, he searched for the waterfall for quite a long time, but there was nothing like a place to enter.
When he came out of the waterfall, the man panicked and explained to Junwoo.
“Obviously, there was. There was definitely… it was huge. It was a huge entrance like a cave.”
Junwoo thought it was one of the two.
Initially, there was no such thing as the entrance to the cave he was talking about, or he misunderstood the location.
However, to be called an illusion, the waterfall was relatively small, and there were no other waterfalls around.
“Is this right?”
“That’s right… there are only waterfalls here… can’t we look for a little more?”
Five people climbed at regular intervals, so it was challenging to say there was space behind the waterfall.
“I’m sorry, but we’ll go back. What would you do?”
Reporter 1 had parents and a married wife.
Befitting a level 36, he was a 30-year-old male who had been active in the neighborhood guild for a long time.
His identity seemed inevitable, but he did not intend to stay long in a particular place as there were no caves he was talking about.
Informant 1 looked at Junwoo with a worried face and shrugged his shoulders.
“Yes, I will go back.”
It was challenging to find the cave alone.
At that time, the attack was at a level that informant 1 could not handle, so if Junwoo and others were not with him, his life would be in danger.
While returning in the flying car, informant 1 continued to ask for trust.
“It really was. Some people witnessed my foot being amputated around here that day. I’m not really lying… Please believe me….”
“I heard that sometimes hidden dungeons are created and then disappear. It may have disappeared.”
At Junwoo’s words, informant 1 blurted his words as if puzzled.
“But the cave type doesn’t disappear….”
“Is that so? So, have you misunderstood the place?”
“No, I don’t know how I came to English…….”
Yoshimura, who was behind him, interrupted and spoke in Japanese.
“What disappears is the hidden dungeon entered through the portal, and the cave-type hidden dungeon does not disappear.”
“There is a saying, there are caves you go to during the day, but there are no caves you go to at night.”
“What are you talking about?”
“I’m talking about hidden dungeons that appear and disappear over time. Isn’t that what you learn in school?”
Junwoo was from a regular school and didn’t even attend high school.
“So, there may be cases that don’t exist now?”
“that’s right. The cave opens and closes depending on the time, the weather, or condition.”
“Are you saying that this guy might not be lying?”
“Unless you are a liar.”
“Did you remember the place, Yoshimura?”
“I’m going to leave it to you. See you later.”
Yoshimura, with a puzzled face, nodded slowly and spoke.
“Exploring isn’t my hobby, but I’ve found a place… I’ll look for it and see.”
“I will look for it too.”
Junwoo spoke to informant 1 in Korean.
“We will look for it again next time. If it is resolved, I will pay compensation accordingly.”
“Ah, thank you… but that’s not really a lie. Please believe me.”
Whether it was a lie or not would be revealed through investigation.
Junwoo dropped informant 1 outside the gate and flew straight to informant 2’s house.
With informant 2 on the passenger seat, Junwoo entered the gate he was talking about and flew towards a specific mountain.
Upon arriving at the location, informant 2 walked inside the steep slope of the mountain.
As he walked inside, Junwoo scanned the land.
He did not know that Lee Dong-Jin might have been drawn on the Earth with stones, leaves, or soil.
The vines were blocking the entrance.
When informant 2 pinched the vine and pulled it out, a cave was visible inside.
Junwoo went inside.
The hidden dungeon could not feel the existence of the monsters from the outside. Still, when you entered the cave entrance, you could tell by mana whether there were any monsters or not.
But Junwoo felt there was nothing in the cave.
“Were there any monsters here?”
“no. I’m not very good at mana sense… but I don’t have any coins.”
It was customary to drop a 1 gold coin at the entrance of the cave-type hidden dungeon if it was resolved.
It could be a unique monster that doesn’t feel the mana, or there could be a drooping web inside, so Junwoo led them inside.
A magic light came up from Junwoo’s item window, illuminating the inside of the cave.
Informant 2 followed the four with a nervous face.
The cave was drilled for about 50m, and there was nothing at the end of it.
Informant 2 looked at Junwoo with a bewildered face.
“Ah… someone must have already come and gone… I’m sorry….”
It may have already been reported where the monster was caught, or it could have been that the beast had already disappeared because Junwoo arrived late.
“No, I’m going back.”
“I’m sorry… I didn’t have a coin…”.”
Junwoo came out and threw a handful of 1 gold coin at the entrance.
Reporter 1 did not know, and informant 2 was just a place where there was a cave.
Reporter 2 dropped off outside the gate, and Junwoo flew to Songpa.
Yoshimura, sitting in the passenger seat, looked ahead and spoke.
“As a tip, if you go to the cave, most of them are already finished caves. And sometimes, absurdly, it was a site where miners worked.”
“What can be called success?”
“It’s all about catching some monster and getting the items there. Still, there was a secret dungeon there once, so I did earn quite a bit of gold.”
There was a special place to enter through the portal, and it was called a secret dungeon.
It is similar to the dungeon gate, but even if you do not catch the monsters in the secret dungeon within the time limit, the demons in the jail do not run out and come out.
“The first place I went to, when I have time, look for it.”
“I will do that. By the way, the person you brought yesterday is also a whistleblower? Another cave?”
80-90% of the reports were usually found in caves.
However, what informant 3 said was not a cave.
“No, it’s not a cave.”
“Yes? That’s not a report I’d like. Because there were many cases where it was a completely unrelated place or a delusion of one’s own.”
“Does it seem like you’ve been following along?”
“In Yunnan, most of the reports come from Dark Star. I’ve been to a few check-ups with the kids. Most of it is nonsense, but if you want to be real, the Vice Masters and explorers come and solve it.”
“People who only look for hidden dungeons. Hidden dungeons have certain patterns, so they are masters in that regard.”
“If you can’t find a cave in the waterfall you’ve been to, why not call an explorer?”
“Find one. But aren’t you going to the place that the person you brought in yesterday said you’re going to today?”
Reporter 3’s family seemed to need some time to settle down.
“I think I’ll go in a few days.”
“So, are you done with your work for today?”
Junwoo was worried about what to do. He had two days of free time to solve the hidden dungeon, so he thought he should head to the hunting ground.
“Leon, I’m going to go hunting for Eumeria. Would you like to go with me?”
Eumeria answered immediately.
“Of course, I have to go. Where are you going this time?”
“Orc village at Songpa Gate.”
Eumeria said as if she knew whether she had studied the hunting grounds of Songpa Gate.
“Isn’t that… a level 70-80 hunting ground?”
“Yes, I have a quest to solve, so I want you to go with me.”
The Orc Village was where the level 70 quests that occurred at that time failed because of the isolation in Mt. Gwanggyo.
It was a quest to catch 2,000 Orcs, and although it had already failed, Junwoo was planning to visit there once.
It is where there is a high probability that a special quest will occur for you.
So, the quest required about 2,000 horses, and they planned to return.
“Oh, of course, I have to go! Is that Leon?”
“Can I go and hunt by myself?”
It was Leon who suggested that there would be insufficient monsters if we went together.
“It’s too far away, but it doesn’t have to be.”
“Yeah, I’ll take good care of the distance.”
“How many days will you be there?”
“It’s not that far away, so I’ll come back when it gets dark and go back tomorrow.”
“You’re coming back at night, aren’t you?”
“Unless there is anything special.”
Yoshimura took out his smartphone and sent a text somewhere.
“Who are you sending to?”
Yoshimura turned to the translator and showed Junwoo the message being communicated once.
“Is it the same as bragging…?”
“No, I’m afraid I’m suspicious.”
“Don’t worry, I believe.”
A faint smile spread across Yoshimura’s lips as he looked at the smartphone at Junwoo’s words.
Junwoo bent the handle toward the Songpa gate.
At that moment, Junwoo’s smartphone vibrated.
No, everyone’s smartphones vibrated.
The group’s vibrations meant disaster messages.
Korea did not send disaster messages due to earthquakes.
There were only two cases of disaster texts.
A crack has opened where monsters invade Earth, or a powerful boss is coming towards Korea from the gate.
And at the same time, a loud siren sounded.
The siren sounding meant that a crack had occurred in the area adjacent to Korea.
Since Junwoo was isolated on Mt. Gwanggyo, it was the siren that sounded all over Korea for almost 100 days.
And this crack was also the first crack that occurred after Junwoo’s Aegis Guild was formed.
Junwoo turned the steering wheel in the direction of the Aegis Guild building.
