The faces of the Demonic Cult’s warriors who were waiting for Chun Yeowun to respond were stiff and calm.

The most important thing for them was the safety of their Lord.

However, while they stood guard, they saw that the warriors of Yulin and the palace warriors of the North Sea Ice Palace were heading down to the underground.

The fear that their Lord, who defeated the dragon, would end up losing the core of the Dragon Turtle pissed them off.

‘Damn bastards. It is true that there is no sage in front of the treasure.’

It was just like that.

The Dragon Turtle, which brought disaster when alive, turned into a treasure that everyone coveted once it died.

To the extent that the whisperings of eternal life and the regeneration of the body turned every faithful man into a greedy bastard.

‘Lord. Please get up.’

Everyone wanted Chun Yeowun to recover quickly.

They wanted him to show his anger to those who revealed their true colors.

At this time, impatience was spreading.



The sparks which were on Chun Yeowun’s body suddenly began to shine a lot brighter.

The cultists standing around the Lord immediately moved back a couple of steps as they didn’t want sparks to fall on them.

“The lightning is becoming stronger!”

The faces of the Six Swords who were watching it darkened.

However, Chun Yeowun, who was supposed to control the qi, seemed to be having trouble.

But, it was a concern for only a moment.


The lightning and sparks extending out in the shape of a circle were absorbed into Chun Yeowun’s body.

A strong energy emanated from Chun Yeowun’s body, which hadn’t been giving out any energy except for the lightning qi.

“Ah! Finally!”


As expected, Chun Yeowun succeeded in subduing the lightning qi.

As the new energy got absorbed, which was in the middle of his dantian, a true coexistence of energies existed in his body.


‘It’s out of balance.’

Compared to the demonic energy and the Qilin’s flame, the lightning qi seemed insufficient.

He absorbed the qi emitted by the dragon, so it temporarily increased, but in order to balance out the lightning with the other energies, a constant formation and balance of lightning qi was needed.

And that source was,

‘I need to have that core.’

The novelties of the other three attributes naturally replenished when Chun Yeowun consumed them.

Unlike the lightning qi, the other energies would restore when used.

In the same way, it seemed like he could only balance out the true spirit of the four energies in his body with the core of the dragon, which is known to have infinite energy.

When he opened his eyes, the cultists who had been waiting for Chun Yeowun shouted.


“Lord has woken up!”

Hu Bong hurriedly ran with the robe in his hands, trying to cover Chun Yeowun.

Seeing that, Chun Yeowun realized that his clothes got burnt out.

Chun Yeowun, who covered his naked body with the long robe, asked.

“What happened? Hu Bong.”

Chun Yeowun sensed that many of the people who stayed on the ground disappeared.

Except for more than three hundred white-haired people of the North Sea Ice Palace, who watched from a distance and the cultists, no one could be seen.

“Lord! Just a while ago, the men of Yulin and the North Sea Ice Palace went down to get the core of the dragon.”

Chun Yeowun shook his head at the words of Hu Bong.

He expected people to covet it, but he didn’t like how they actually went.

“And them?”

Not all the warriors of Ice Palace had gone down.

Looking at the ones in the distance, it seemed like those warriors were keeping an eye on the Demonic Cult rather than trying to fight.

It was Marakim who gave the answer.

“Lord. They are warriors and officials directly under the control of the Ice Palace’s king.”


“I can answer that.”

At that time, Baekhyun, who was outside the defense circle, approached Chun Yeowun.

It seemed like he had been waiting for a while to explain it.

“Lord, those people…”

The remaining royal officials of the Ice Palace were the followers of the deceased former king.

They didn’t support Dan Jucheon, the deputy king, who was currently in power.

The corners of Chun Yeowun’s lips went up.



“Those who have to be dealt with and those who are on our side are separated.”

Baekhyun’s face turned pale at the words of Chun Yeowun.

It sounded casual, but he couldn’t overlook it.

He didn’t know about the clans of Jianghu, but Chun Yeowun, the Lord of the Demonic Cult, was someone who kept his word.

“We need to hurry.”

“I’ll bring you some clothes.”

“No. You don’t need to.”

When they tried to summon the cultists to replace Chun Yeowun’s clothes, he refused.

After all, there was something he had to test.

It was one of the three features he had been most curious about.

‘Nano. Gatelinium Nano suit!’

[Equipping Gatelinium Nano suit.]



Numerous black particles came out of Chun Yeowun’s body and covered it.

The black particles that came out were agglomerated and covered the entire body of Chun Yeowun, creating an ultra-thin, black armor.


Even his entire face had been covered, leaving only two holes for the eyes.

[Nano suit has been equipped.]


Nano’s augmented reality opened up in Chun Yeowun’s vision.

All the preparations were completed as white particles drew lines and marked up information.

At the tremendous change that happened, all the cultists were shocked.

“A-armor has been made!”

“Lord, what is this?”

Gatelinium Nano suit formed without gaps, making him look like a non-human.

In the same way, his appearance looked more like a real demon.

The word of ‘Demon God’ kept flowing out from everyone’s mouth.

‘It’s a lot more conspicuous than I thought.’

He thought that there would be subtle changes, but seeing the reactions of everyone around, it seemed a lot more extravagant.

Chun Yeowun briefly explained while looking at the Six Swords, Marakim, and elder Mong Mu.

“It’s Nano armor.”


With those words, Chun Yeowun’s body floated into the air.

While light magnetic-field particles spewed out from the two feet of the Nano suit.

[Using the magnetic-field force of both hands, it is possible to change the direction and balance.]

The suit's hands were also emitting some magnetic-field particles.

As he floated into the air, everyone was nothing short of amazed.

Chun Yeowun flew away after saying two words to them.

“Follow me.”

Phut! Swoosh!

Chun Yeowun’s body wearing the Nano suit flew through the air in an instant and then disappeared to the underground, which got pierced by the Sky Flash.

The cultists, who were amazed at what their Lord was doing, shouted.


Hu Bong, who looked at Chun Yeowun fly away, spoke one word.

“Nano armor!”

It made his heart skip a beat.

Jegal Sohi wasn’t the only one who was flustered when the face behind the Nano suit was revealed.

Moyong Kang was equally shocked at Chun Yeowun’s appearance.

What the hell was the armor on his body? And it was astonishing for him to see Chun Yeowun recover from qi deviation in such a short time.


Dan Jucheon, the deputy king of the palace, was also perplexed.

Before the Lord of Demonic Cult recovered, he wanted to absorb the core and explode his internal strength, so he didn’t expect the man to appear so quickly.

‘How did he recover so quickly after being attacked by the dragon?’

It wasn’t that the internal energy had been exhausted, but his body had taken too much lightning qi, and to recover from that, despite being a Divine Master level, it would take a long time.

They all thought that it would take half a day or so, but this was too fast.

“Lord, Lord Chun, I am glad to see you are safe.”

Moyong Kang, who was confused and not sure what to do, spoke cautiously.

If Chun Yeowun had appeared, then there is nothing good that would come from fighting him.

At that, Chun Yeowun turned towards him and opened his mouth.

“Quite refreshing, how people who covet other people’s belongings were worried for me.”


Moyong Kang became quiet at those words.

It was because he didn’t know how Chun Yeowun would react if he said anything else.

However, the North Sea Ice Palace didn’t stand still.

“What do you mean by other people’s belongings? Although Lord Chun did the most work, strictly speaking everyone joined together to fight the dragon, it doesn’t belong to just one person.”

Among the elders of Ice Palace, the warlike one, Oh Mubang, spoke out.

Oh Mubang too had rushed down to where the dragon was to covet the core and gain strength for himself and himself alone.

Seol Young-gwi, too, came out to help out.

“What the elder said is right. And Lord Chun. While you were recovering above, we only came here to confirm the death of the dragon. Please clear this misunderstanding that you have.”

Seol Young-gwi made up excuses.

So far, they haven’t been able to directly occupy the core of the Dragon Turtle.

He thought that no matter how great of a Lord he was, he couldn’t do anything if they hadn’t occupied it yet.

[Good Job. Elder.]

Dan Jucheon, the deputy king, praised Soel Young-gwi for his quick words.

He, too, didn’t want to confront the monster who just restored his strength.

‘A pity, but since elder Seol had to make up a justification for this, I think we should only deal with the ones from the Blade God Six Martial clan, and discuss the core at a later time.’

Nothing good ever came out from the presence of those men.

However, the expressions on Yulin’s side weren’t good.

Moyong Kang looked at them and shook his head with a disapproving look.


When he was puzzled.


Chun Yeowun, who was at the entrance of the opening, suddenly appeared in front of Oh Mubang.

‘Wh-what amazing speed?’


Instinctively, Oh Mubang tried to spread the distance,



Thud, roll!

With a short scream, the head of Oh Mubang, which had been decapitated, rolled on the ground.

Seol Young-gwi, the elder next to him, was startled at what happened so quickly.

“Lord Chun! What the hell…”


Seol Young-gwi’s right arm flew through the air before he could even finish speaking.

Seol Young-gwi’s expression distorted with pain that came from the slash, and a terrifying scream erupted.


All the warriors of the Ice Palace were shocked as they saw the bloody arm.

“No way!”

One elder had his head cut off and the other his right arm cut off. They were both Superior Masters.

Even outside the Ice Palace, the Superior Masters were treated with respect, but they seemed like kids in front of Chun Yeowun.

Chun Yeowun looked at Seol Young-gwi, who was grunting in pain and spoke in his usual cold voice.

“You keep making excuses that don’t even make sense.”


‘Are our positions being changed here? This, this isn’t good.’

Only then did Dan Jucheon, the deputy king of the Ice Palace, understand why the appearance of Moyong Kang and Yulin changed upon the arrival of Chun Yeowun.

They knew how the Lord of the Demonic Cult would act.

‘Too… strong.’

He could clearly feel it with just one movement.

Although Dan Jucheon is one of the strongest in the North, this man in front of him was on a completely different level.

‘How can this be?’

When he was in a moment of shock,

The middle-aged man who had his arm cut off waved a bell and yelled.

“Ack! Ki-kill that bastard!”


With the sound of a bell, the people in iron masks, who had been waiting in stance with their weapons, rushed for Chun Yeowun.



Chun Yeowun looked at them.

They were above the Superior Master level, but the martial arts they were using weren’t that of the Blade God Six Martial clan.

Chun Yeowun’s eyes narrowed as he looked at them.

‘The former lord was also said to be wearing an iron mask.’

There was a possibility that the former lord of the cult was among them.

The easiest way to check would be to battle all of them at once.

Chun Yeowun, in his armor, went for the people in the iron masks who were rushing at him.


Clang! Clang! Clang!

When Chun Yeowun and the iron masks collided, the entire cave was filled with sounds of clashing.

Just the clashing sounds from the swords were enough to shake the entire cave.

At that time, Jegal Sohi spoke to Moyong Kang.

“Leader Moyong! Now is our chance! We need to retreat!”

They weren’t sure what would happen if Chun Yeowun turns out to be in a bad mood after the fight.

Moyong Kang also nodded as he agreed and spoke to Dan Jucheon.

[Deputy King, as you can see, we need to retreat right now. I know that nothing good will come out of trying to touch Lord Chun’s belongings.]

Dan Jucheon’s face hardened.

It was a shame, but it was an undeniable fact.

Dan Jucheon quietly ordered his men.

“Retreat quickly!”

The warriors all nodded their heads and moved to retreat.

The passage created by the dragon was so wide that even if they all moved at once, it wasn’t cramped.

They were in a hurry to get back onto the surface, but Dan Jucheon suddenly stopped and raised his hand.

As a result, the Ice Palace and the Yulin warriors stopped.

Someone was walking into the dark cave.

Moyong Kang, who frowned at that, spoke in a bewildered voice.

“The Dark King!”

The one walking in was the Great Guardian, Marakim.

Marakim drew his sword from the waist.


With the sound of the sword being pulled out of the sheath, he pointed it at the Yulin and the North Sea Ice Palace forces.

“In the name of our Lord. Overpower everyone who rebels and kill them!”

Woong! Woong! Woong!

As soon as his words fell, many white and black flags fluttered in the dark passage behind Marakim.

Hundreds of swords illuminated in the darkness.

Everyone held their breath at the sight of the people emitting immense energy with vicious blood lust.


Even Moyong Kang and Dan Jucheon, who held onto their swords, were scared for their lives.

‘… this is the worst.’

Would this situation go well with the phase of ‘regression and dilemma’?

The shadow of despair engulfed the warriors of North Sea Ice Palace and the Yulin forces.
