Min Jiwon was surprised by my words .

“…Battle of Hwangsanbeol?”

“Yes, Silla originally won the Battle of Hwangsanbeol . This is according to history . ”

Chu Wangin’s sword ran through a Hwarang member .

Obviously, Shilla would win if it was like history . If it was like history .  But before I could speak, the captain of Hwarang came forward and shouted, “Don’t retreat! There is no stepping back in a battle!”

At the same time, the Hwarang pulled out their weapons .

“No!”

“Victory! Loyally serve the king!”

“Serve!”

This bastard?

[All of the Hwarang of Silla are subjected to the effect of Mundane World Five Commandments Lv . 2!]

“Hahaha, you are pushing them!”

Gyebaek’s incarnation, Chu Wangin cried out .  Hwarang’s captain came running towards him with a spear .  He was following his damn sponsor .

[The character ‘Chu Wangin’ has used the stigma Baekje Kendo Lv . 3!]

“Keeoook!”

The body of the Hwarang captain flew through the air after being hit by a big sword .

I shouted towards Min Jiwon .  “Tell them to set up the formations!”

“Take your formations! Hurry!”

[Character ‘Min Jiwon’ has activated Military Command Lv . 2 . ]

[The army has lost their sense of reason . ]

[The skill activation is cancelled . ]

“Set up the formation!”

Min Jiwon screamed again but the Hwarang were already inspired by Mundane World Five Commandments and didn’t listen to her order . In the first place, they were loyal to the beauty of Queen Jinseong, not her charisma .

I heard a sound . Then Lee Gilyoung landed next to me from where he broke through the window of the museum’s second floor .

“Hyung, should I call Titano?”

Lee Gilyoung’s eyes shone as he prepared to use Diverse Communication .

“No, it is okay . ”

It would be helpful if Lee Gilyoung could call the 6th grade insect king like last time but then he would be unconscious for two days . High grade monsters were difficult to control and could also sweep away allies .

In any case, Lee Gilyoung was my hidden card .  I had to save him until the beginning of the war with the kings .

“Kuaaak!”

The Hwarang in front of us were knocked out .  On the other hand, there wasn’t a single dead Baekje person .

I reached out to Yoo Sangah who ran to me .

“Yoo Sangah-ssi, the relic…!”

Yoo Sangah handed me the Ganpyeongui .

The Ganpyeongui . Everyone was distracted by the Four Yin Demonic Beheading Sword but in fact, the Ganpyeongui was an essential item for the fourth scenario .

The Four Yin Demonic Beheading Sword had no meaning if this item didn’t exist .

“Kuheeok!”

The captain of Hwarang was a wreck as he was hit by Chu Wangin again .  It wouldn’t be strange if he died in one more blow .

[The constellation Hwarang Knows No Retreat is in a hurry . ]

[The constellation ‘Last Hero of Hwangsanbeol’ is happy . ]

[The constellation ‘Lady of the Brocade Sleep’ is irritated . ]

The momentum of the Baekje army grew while Silla’s morale broke down .  It felt like the spirit of Gyebaek was flowing from Chu Wangin’s body .

“Destroy the damn Silla!”

The more that the constellations were in a situation similar to the history that they lived, the greater the coordination with their incarnation and the stronger the power of the stigma .

In addition, the encounter with ‘related’ constellations…

It was time for the ‘stage’ to be created .

“Uhh?

What?”

People screamed with surprise .  Sparks filled the surrounding space and the scene changed . Seoul’s Gwanghwamun was transformed into a rugged mountain wilderness .

「Stage Transformation . 」

It was a phenomenon that occurred when the coordination was high between incarnations with historical correlations .

Space Transformation summoned the space-time that the constellations had fought in .  Of course, the space wasn’t really changed . It was close to an augmented reality .

The problem was that this wasn’t the case for the people who summoned the stage .

“Hahahaha… I missed you Hwangsanbeol!”

Chu Wangin achieved a considerable level of coordination with his sponsor and shouted .  Now he seemed to completely believe he was Gyebaek .

Gyebaek was in a hurry .  If a constellation did something like this in the early scenarios, it was likely they would receive a sanction from the Bureau . However, Gyebaek was less likely to be affected than the low level constellations .

“U-Uwaaah!”

The frightened Hwarang started to step back .

Lee Sungkook muttered, “He isn’t one of the Seven Kings but he has such power… does this make sense?”

“It is possible because Gyebaek is the protagonist of this stage . ”

Chu Wangin was like a mad monster as he ran around .  Once Stage Transformation occurred and coordination with the sponsor increased, the incarnation’s strength would multiply .

I looked at the trembling Min Jiwon and opened my mouth .

“I have two ways . One is to let the incarnation of Gwanchang die . ”

“That…what do you mean?”

Originally, the Battle of Hwangsanbeol was a battlefield that Shilla won thanks to  Gwanchang’s sacrifice .  One half of the battle was complete if he died .

“As soon as Stage Transformation began, this has become the battlefield of history . If the incarnation of Gwanchang dies, the morale of the Silla troops will rise due to their anger . This is recorded in history . ”

I didn’t listen to Min Jiwon’s answer .

“The second way is to change history . ”

I looked down at the Ganpyeongui in my hands .  Ganpyeongui, an astronomical observation device produced by Joseon in the 17th century .

Min Jiwon felt uneasy and asked, “What will happen if it fails?”

“Your country will perish . ”

“Then of course it will be the first option…!”

This was truly Queen Jinseong .  She was considered an incompetent ruler for a reason .

“I didn’t mean to give you a choice . I will do the second method . ”

“Then why did you mention it?”

“I gave you a chance . You are not what Silla needs right now . ”

I manipulated the two discs that made up the Ganpyeongui .

The two discs were called the sky disc and the earth disc respectively . The top was the earth disc and the bottom was the sky disc .

There was a simple definition for Ganpyeongui in Ways of Survival .

「 The Ganpyeongui is an item that can find the constellations in heaven . 」

As I slowly turned the earth disc, the constellations engraved on the sky disc started to burn brightly .

[Ganpyeongui’s special option ‘Echo of the Stars’ has been activated . ]

[‘Echo of the Stars’ allows you to ask for the help of a constellation . ]

[The constellation can refuse your request and the number of times Ganpyeongui can be used is reduced when the constellation responds to the request . ]

There were seven constellations left on the sky disc .  In other words, I can use it seven more times in the future .

It would’ve been good if there were more constellations left on the relic . Well, it couldn’t be helped .

Lee Sungkook seemed to have noticed something and asked, “Are you going to get help from a constellation with that?”

“Not all the constellations are available but there are some great people . ”

Lee Sungkook was filled with admiration at my answer . He belatedly found out the true value of this item .

“That’s it!” Lee Sungkook cried out excitedly, “How about calling Xiang Yu or Lu Bu? If you call them, you can easily deal with Gyebaek . ”

“I have to know the modifier of the constellation . ”

In the world of Ways of Survival, the modifier was like the constellations’ space-time coordinates . The modifiers were like the the X and Y axis coordinate system in the Star Stream .

“Ah… then…”

Lee Sungkook made a sad expression .  He thought that I didn’t know the modifiers of Lu Bu and Xiang Yu .  But that was an illusion .  There was no one in the world who knew as many constellation modifiers as me .

“I’ll call a constellation . ”

[The great constellations hear your voice flowing through the stars . ]

Of course, the constellation I was calling wasn’t Lu Bu or Xiang Yu .  There was no guarantee they would respond to this request and there was someone more fitting for this battlefield .

I stared at the stars in the sky .  I faced the numerous stars and opened my mouth .

“I want to call Hwarang Leader King Heungmu the Great . ”

[The star navigation has begun . ]

A part of the sky darkened and a shadow fell to the ground .  The battle between Silla and Baekje stopped .

“What nonsense are you saying?”

Chu Wangin sensed something suspicious and started running towards me .

“Representative-nim, we will stop them . ”

Lee Sungkook pulled out a sword . I didn’t know how long the hypnotist would be able to endure but I should have some time .

After a while, one of the stars in the sky shone brightly .  He finally appeared .

[The constellation ‘King Heungmu the Great’ is looking at you . ]

“General . ”

[The constellation ‘King Heungmu the Great’ is listening to you . ]

“There are people here who need your help . I am calling you because your people are dying . ”

[The constellation ‘King Heungmu the Great’ is silent at your words . ]

King Heungmu the Great . He wasn’t royalty but he was the only person who was given a posthumous name of a king of Silla .

He probably wouldn’t reject my request .  It was because Hwangsanbeol was his battlefield .

But something unexpected happened .

[The constellation ‘King Heungmu the Great’ doesn’t want to be involved in the history of modern life . ]

[The constellation ‘King Heungmu the Great’ will reject your offer . ]

…What? The constellation was about to fade away when Yoo Sangah interrupted .

“General, please listen to my words!”

The smart Yoo Sangah noticed who King Heungmu the Great was .

[The constellation ‘King Heungmu the Great’ is looking back . ]

“I’m well aware of General’s story! The Battle of Hwangsanbeol, the Siege of Pyongyang…! I’ve read all about it in the records!”

Yoo Sangah took a deep breath before starting to talk .

“I understand that you want to respect the past and history . But General! Some histories don’t end after they are recorded . ”

Yoo Sangah’s voice was clear and straightforward .

“Don’t you regret it? The battlefield where the young Hwarang are sacrificed and countless people are buried…! Have you already forgotten?”

[The constellation ‘King Heungmu the Great’ is listening to incarnation Yoo Sangah’s story . ]

“History won’t change . The soldiers on the field won’t be comforted and the lives of the young Hwarang won’t return . But General! The history here hasn’t ended yet! If you come here, at least you can change the history in this place!”

I had forgotten how good a talker Yoo Sangah was .   During her early days, she was the queen of PT at Mino Soft .

“General! Your Battle of Hwangsanbeol is over… but we are still at Hwangsanbeol . ”

[The constellation ‘King Heungmu the Great’ has silently closed his eyes . ]

There were such moments in life .  I knew what would happen from now on, even if no one said anything .

[The constellation ‘King Heungmu the Great’ has responded to your request . ]

One of the constellations on Ganpyeongui disappeared and a light from the star in the sky shone on me .

I smiled at the nervous Yoo Sangah .  “Well done Yoo Sangah-ssi . ”

[You have temporarily received the protection of constellation ‘King Heungmu the Great . ’]

The muscles in my body twitched like they were surprised . My heart pumped and light and darkness crossed several times in my head . Something was being constructed inside me .

[This is just on old man’s reminiscence of the past . ]

This was the mantra of the constellation .  Just listening made my existence at stake .

[Please, lend me your voice for a while . ]

I nodded while opening my eyes .  Everyone on the field of Hwangsanbeol was looking at me .

The incarnation of Gyebaek, Chu Wangin was astonished .  “That person…?”

The spirit of a constellation was felt despite him not descending directly .  This was the size of the existences called constellations .

“It has been a while, Gyebaek . ”

There was a strange depth in my voice .  In the distance, the incarnation of Gwanchang staggered .

“Hwarang Gwanchang, there is no need to pay respect to me . ”

“G-General…!”

King Heungmu the Great was watching the world through me .  He looked at Gwanchang, Gyebaek and the broken Seoul .  I was also watching the world through King Heungmu the Great .  The sunlight covered the plains of Hwangsan .

“It is funny . Why is it that all of you have gathered here again?”

Chu Wangin laughed madly at these words .  It was a laugh filled with deep-seated resentment .  At this moment, he really was Gyebaek .

“Don’t you know? It was to meet you again on this field!”

[The character ‘Chu Wangin’ has used the stigma Baekje Kendo Lv . 4!]

Chu Wangin’s sword filled with power and moved .  Originally, it was an attack that I wouldn’t have been able to avoid or block .  But I avoided the attack without much difficulty .

“Gyebaek, why are you doing this to your incarnation? Have you forgotten the constraints of plausibility? You will destroy your incarnation . ”

It was as he said . Gyebaek was acting unreasonably .  I also wondered this as a reader of Ways of Survival .

“Kim Yushin… You must’ve heard nothing about this world . ”

“What do you mean?”

“It doesn’t matter . My wish was achieved the moment I met you . I’ll have no regrets even if I die now!” The incarnation of Gyebaek cried out .  “I carry on Baekje’s legacy of Buyeo, Gyebaek of Hwangsanbeol! I will settle my lifelong regret here!”

King Heungmu the Great watched Gyebaek’s incarnation with sad eyes and opened his mouth through me .

“I am the 15th captain of Hwarang, Kim Yushin . ”

King Heungmu the Great, Hwarang Leader Kim Yushin .

“I will comfort the soul of the unfortunate constellation and correct the history of modern humans . ”

The man who led the Battle of Hwangsanbeol to victory sent me his will . I moved my right hand . A bluish glow grew from the hilt .

「 The sword of the Hwarang leader is now on the battlefield . 」

[The power of the star relic ‘Blue Dragon Sword’ is temporarily stored in Unbroken Faith . ]

The blade of the Blue Dragon Sword soared high into the sky of Hwangsan .

All of Hwangsan seemed to scream .  Enormous magic power escaped and a large crack appeared in the earth, centred around me .

「 Dragon Flower Tree unit, come to this place right now . 」

[The stigma ‘Gather the Hwarang’ is activated!]

Something was happening in the crack .

The forgotten ghosts buried in the eternal history .  There were no names left but they were Hwarang who once lived on this land and who fought only for honour .

Kuoooooh!

The Dragon Flower Tree, Kim Yushin’s elite unit showed up from the pages of history .
