I have Max level luck - Chapter 6, The Banquet at Night (1)
Part 6-The Banquet at Night (1)
– Magic power has increased by 1.
-Magic Domination has risen to E grade.
Again, the level of magic ability or talent was low, and the efficiency was great because it was a high-level training.
“Lee Han-Seong Candidate?”
“You don’t seem to be concentrating on the class right now, are you?”
“Then let’s solve a problem.”
On the magic blackboard, the expression formula for the very basic magic [Light Orb] and the expression formula for [Fireball] was written side by side.
“If you have just heard the explanation, you can deduce the ‘conversion formula’ of the manifested magic. About 50% of it was explained.”
As a basic knowledge, all hero candidates learn and practice basic magic. However, it was only basic ‘knowledge’ to start to pass the test, so it was an unknown formula except for some hero candidates who received regular magic education.
‘Probably to set an example.’
‘If that’s the case, I’ll play along.’
The problem was this. How to convert [Light Orb] to [Fireball]. To cancel the magic and apply a new magic, the magic loss is large and the delay is long. To compensate for that shortcoming, it is converted without canceling the magic. Of course, it couldn’t be easy.
But who is Hanseong? A player who cleared this world itself and stood at the pinnacle of magic through continuous dedication for 52 years.
‘It’s not difficult.’
Hanseong grabbed the magic chalk and scribbled it down. From the magic circle that corresponds to the ‘Magic Control Engine’ of [Light Orb], the
properties and expression method have been slightly changed. Added [Loss Preservation] while transforming. The explanation was simple, but it was enough to fill one side of the blackboard with only formulas.
‘This should be just right.’
He stopped chalk stopped and looked at Mage Lee Jeong-Hyun.
“Was this enough?”
“Were you majoring in magic?”
“Yeah, it wasn’t magic, but I am quite knowledgable about magic.”
“Right. Well, I don’t think it’s a bit… return to your seat.”
I could just show that I couldn’t solve it. It might have been little embarrassing because the sword was listed as the main weapon. However, this should be considered as a development for creating connections with the Hidden Piece that Hanseong knew well.
‘Mage Lee Jeong-Hyun is teaching the basics of magic in the academy, but he is a person who is unusually connected to the hidden peace related to obtaining abilities… …’
The rewards of Hidden Peace vary from B to S.
The S-class reward is a unique ability called [Magic Replacement] that supports mental power with magic. Or, conversely, it is a unique ability called [Spirit Power Substitution] that supports magic with mental power.
‘It’s worth doing this much work for it.’
Because there aren’t many ways to get this kind of ability right now.
“Wow, were you like that?”
Some characters’ eyes were focused on him.
‘What. Wasn’t it the 1st place in the rankings with sword as the main weapon?’
‘Great. You mean you’re also good at magic?’
‘It could be just on theory.’
‘Hey, look at that speed. Are you at the level of a complete professional wizard?’
‘Everything’s perfect except for the face… ….’
I seriously thought about whether I should raise the attractiveness level first.
– Attracted the attention of candidates and instructors.
– Awareness rises.
-Recognition: 12 Points acquired!
Even if you feel being of uneasiness, it is beneficial to get recognition points.
“Okay, today’s class ends here. Review all of them and don’t forget to practice magic control.’
Then come on. After that, classes are held in the afternoon. I have about 4 hours to spare. Hanseong moved quickly, ate lunch, and moved to the public fitness room. This is usually used by wizards with weak physical strength or superpowers among first-year students. Because Hanseong has the stats at the level of a teenager, it will be difficult here too.
10 minutes after starting the exercise. A familiar face entered the training room.
‘Sunghyun Gil and Julia? He was also a wizard.’
Jinhoon and Hanbyul never come here. Because their physical abilities are already beyond the limits of humans.
“I hate physical training. All you have to do is do magic, why do you have to do this?”
“Noisy. If not, just go.”
“Chi. too bad.”
Julia is a hero candidate for France’s [Red Horse Tower]. Gil Sung-Hyun and her family are acquaintances.
‘I can barely remember… her’
‘Oh, it was Julia Martin.’
A quick internet search revealed that Julia’s father was Kay Martin. ‘Martin’, a giant multinational corporation that produces magical military supplies for PMC (Private Military Companies) with the world-famous ‘Red Sunset’ magic battalion.
“It’s him, isn’t it? The guy who wrote the amazing transformation formula.”
“ It’s not amazing. Everyone can do that right?.”
“Ah, I don’t think so. If not, the basic magic course wouldn’t take 3-years to complete. Even I would have to memorize it beforehand.”
“Don’t worry about it, it’s just theory.”
Even Gil Sung-Hyun said that he had a complicated expression on his face.
“Would you like to hire him?”
“Hehe, it’s a joke. It’s still too much for the top 500. I’m not even a wizard.”
It sounded like something that she had said without thinking.
‘If it’s that group, I would reject it without even thinking twice.’
[Black Rose] is a gathering of genius magic hero candidates headed by Gil Sung-Hyun. The name is quite childish, but it should be remembered that they are still 17 years old. Hanseong left behind the uncomfortable feeling and focused on physical exercise.
– Strength 1 has increased.
– Health has increased by 1.
It’s all because of Hanseong’s abilities which are so low that it rises up so quickly. The result of adding the power of the [Level Growth Acceleration Potion] purchased with money earned at the casino.
‘I’ll had to even resort on doping.’
Physical training should never be neglected.
The main quest will proceed within the academy, and sub-quests will overlap in the middle. Can Hanseong with stats in the 10’s to survives in this extremely difficult game?
‘Of course impossible.’
Han Sung trained until sweat dripped down his body and glanced at Julia and Gil Sung-Hyun.
Both are wizards, but they weigh much more than Hanseong.
For a moment, I thought that it was a mistake to set the main weapon as a ‘sword’.
After working out, Hanseong went to eat at the restaurant, and out.
His destination is a casino.
It’s the day we start working to get the Barbarian’s Bracelet.
I walked around the casino and saw Bake Raymond sitting on the poker board.
Hanseong just sat down in an empty seat. With his luck and camera. This is a game you can’t lose.
When I turned my head to the voice that seemed to call for Hanseong, a woman with a beauty that took his breath away by just sitting there. Although she is still young, she has long black hair and had a sharp eye… An unusual scar on her clavicle.
All the coughing came out. I remembered who It was out of breath differently than before.
“Bar, nice to meet you.”
“Hey, It’s interesting to see a freshman who caused the storm in the test in a place like this. Would you like to play a game?”
I don’t dare to object at all. Seong Si-Yeon. In specialized school, 9th rank among national students. Thanks to the measurement test, it climbed to 8th place. But that is not the point. She is the second daughter of a family whose main occupation is assassination. Since she was very young, she has been trained in life-and-death brutality, and she killed her first man at the age of five… That is not what’s important. Her family is one of the world’s leading [Gukyeon]. It is a place where they kill people like eating candy.
‘If you get involved with this woman, you’ll be hooked at once.’
Han Seong is convinced that Seong Si Yeon is the most dangerous person in the academy. really. Hanseong let out a long sigh and made up his mind.
“Are you here to talk or to play games?”
He felt numb. His fingers were trembling, and sweat was running down his spine.
“Ha ha ha ha ha! Yes, if you have come to play, you have to play.”
As expected In front of this woman, all you must do is not resort to what idiots like to do at times like this, such as ‘cowardice’, ‘savagery’, and ‘conspiracy’. It would be better to deal with her head-on like this.
‘What should I do? I know how strong she is ‘
“Dealer, let’s get started.”
Sung Si-Yeon threw it and the game started. Hanseong’s operation was as follows. Si-Yeon Seong wins money but loses to Bake Raymond. Raymond, a gambler to the marrow, will not be able to get out of his seat just because he’s losing.
By the way……
“Why are you so bad at this?”
I was curious, so I asked without thinking. Seong Si-Yeon turned into a demon in an instant. It was scary now, but at moments like this, you have to be more confident.
“… It’s because I’m not feeling well today. Leave it! I am going to pick them all up soon!”
“Yes, yes, I understand.”
Hanseong looked at Si-Yeon Sung’s chip and Raymond’s chip. It does not look like an assassin is a good gambler. There seemed to be no talent in this area.
‘I could help.’
This is also an opportunity. Even though Seong Si-Yeon is dangerous, it is good to get to know her if he has a chance.
“Let’s start the game.”
The dealer took a new card and started shuffling it. The game went smoothly. The first round was won neatly and then lost several rounds in a row, to help Seong Si-Yeon win. It was not that difficult either.
Hanseong swallowed the sound that almost escaped his mouth.
“Why, what’s going on? Did something bad happen? colourful! You cannot hide your face like that. You look pale, rookie!”
My whole body was stiff.
‘Why is he here?’
Someone who should not be in a place like this. Black suit and white shirt. Light skin makeup and dark red lips. He looked very feminine and masculine at the same time. He had a very beautiful appearance, but the evil that dwells in it secretly dominates the surroundings. No, it feels like Hanseong knew too well how strong he is and how evil he is.
The light began blinking.
‘This is unsettling.’
When some people got up from their seats and step back. Black smoke billowed from the floor.
With a white face and red lips, ‘Bento’ grinned. I felt a chill running down my spine seeing the creepy smile.
‘Why is it today?’
A scream begins, and black shadows started appearring everywhere and started killing people. The [Night Banquet], an evil group to which Bento belongs, chose this place. It is a place where new members are tested, and it’s also considered their initiation festival that they enjoy. I did not know. Being a game, not all elements are the same every time you play. The time and place are slightly different. Besides, this must have been one of the hundreds of casinos in the Underworld alone.
– (Sub Quest) Survive their festival!
– [Night Banquet] has chosen this ‘Fader casino’. Today they chose this place for their festival. Get out of the way so you do not fall victim to them!
– On success: ???
– On failure: death
