I bet it wasn’t Karl, and I tried to shake off the unpleasant thoughts that suddenly came to me.
Then Rockefeller, who had caught his bad look like a ghost, asked the reason.
“Why all of a sudden?”
“What do you mean?”
“I think your complexion is not getting better. Would it be a problem if what I was worried about became a reality?”
“what. It is simply to subdue orcs. But the things you said are things that the orcs can only see when they start a war or a war. It’s rarely seen in normal times.”
Rockefeller then looked startled by the false performance.
“War? So, if the monster weapon or shaman I mentioned appears, does that mean there will be a war here?”
“That’s not it. It’s just that the orcs in this area have to start a war in order for the things you’ve said to appear. Even if it’s a monster weapon, orc shamans aren’t really to be found anywhere. Orc shamans are very special even within the orcs.”
“Then what if, without war, you join a group that an orc shaman subjugates?”
“That’s it… … .”
Rockefeller asked again, looking at him, who was fading.
“Is that a problem? Yes?”
Karl couldn’t deny it.
because it was true
“If you are an orc shaman… … In terms of human beings, he’s become a wizard. So of course there will be a problem. We are mercenaries who use swords, but how can we catch a wizard without any preparation? Target assassination is not possible like Ismail, who is reputed to be a famous assassin.”
“Then what will happen?”
“Is that not possible? Orc shamans are so special that they are not easily seen. So no worries.”
“Is there only one?”
Rockefeller’s relentless offensive made Carter, who was working inside the store, a little nervous.
‘What is he trying to say? Shouldn’t it be a secret that there were orc shamans?’
Carter, who noticed the lord, was worried about this and that.
The mercenary commander, Carl, felt annoyed when he faced Rockefeller.
He thought of him as a troublesome boy who persistently asked questions.
“What is the big deal? He just annoys me a lot more than I thought.”
“Are you bothered? how?”
“You have a lot of questions. Keep asking if it’s useless. All you have to do is bring a wizard or a witch who can oppose the shaman and go on subjugation. It’s a shaman’s magic, because a wizard or a witch will take care of it anyway.”
“Then do the Hound mercenaries also have wizards?”
“Do you know how common wizards are? We have to find it separately.”
“Are you not going to give up?”
If you met a hidden ambush called Orc Shaman, there was a very high probability that the general mercenaries would give up on their mission in consideration of the dangers of their work.
It’s impossible in the first place, so why did you take charge of it?
However, there were several reasons why the Hound mercenaries could not give up their jobs easily.
“Actually, I won’t give up easily even because of the penalty.”
There was also the problem of a penalty that had to be paid under the contract if they immediately gave up the mission, but the biggest reason they could not give up the mission was another.
‘What is giving up? It’s just more cumbersome and annoying than I thought.’
“We never gave up on our mission. I don’t know if it’s absurd at all, but if it’s possible to some extent, I tend to end up doing it anyway, even if it’s a loss. After all, that’s what remains for us. The price will go up.”
Karl said this.
“You don’t know why the hound I’m leading has so much fame?”
“Are you going to solve everything?”
“right. If anyone entrusts us with work, we can solve anything. Just with the means.”
“Money is the problem.”
Carl narrowed his eyes gently.
The opponent was a boy who was not yet over twenty, but he never felt that he was too young.
“Anyway, I will not give up on my mission easily under any circumstances. That is the reputation and pride of the Hound that we have built up so hard.”
“Then, if there is an orc shaman as I worry about it, would you like to call in a wizard and finish it?”
Carl was silent, but his eyes were telling everything.
“The conversation has become unnecessarily long. Don’t come back later to get the money you left.”
Rockefeller smiled softly as Karl left after saying those words.
‘The wizard will absolutely need it, and if that happens, either that person or the lord here will need money in some way. The money given to the wizard is unconditionally paid in advance.’
And they won’t stamp the money they don’t have in the air.
Of course, there was a way to write a separate letter of loan from the lord or mercenary commander, but in that way, the wizard could not be summoned.
Because the wizard preferred cash to the IOU.
‘They say you should borrow money here.’
Let me know what you think!
