Grid didn’t know the conditions for an epic to occur .  He just vaguely thought that he had to make great achievements .  However, the truth was different .  The epics that Grid had written so far weren’t only focused on achievements but also on relationships .  The fifth epic proved this .  Therefore . . .

“I am cursed due to the dragons’ terrible words of contempt and hatred toward me . So put away your envy . It is you, not me, who deserves to receive that look . ”

“ . . . . . . ”

In the process of his conversation and building up rapport with the special being called the Dragon Slayer, Grid felt expectant .  He thought that a sixth epic would occur soon .  Then his prediction came true .


[The beginning of the narrative begins with the confession of a lonely Absolute . ]


“I got to know you . ” 


[He dared to comfort the one who stood higher than himself . ]


“Those lizard bastards who cursed you, I will surely destroy them someday . ”

An epic occurred and Grid expressed his feelings truthfully .  He spoke candidly about Hayate’s pain and sorrow and his desire to overcome it together .  Grid knew it was enough .  So far, the epics had responded to his feelings and he believed this time would be the same .  However, this time was different .

“Shh . ” Hayate blocked Grid’s mouth .  His expression hardened for the first time .  “Take back what you just said . ”


[His declaration that he would #%content%amp;을 *% was blocked by the Absolute . ] 


“ . . . ?”

The text was broken .  As a result, Grid’s declaration wasn’t imprinted on the epic and disclosed .  Grid was panicking about the situation when Hayate explained, “The unqualified gods of the East have ruined your senses . ”

“ . . . ?”

“The gods of the East wouldn’t have been a great threat to you . Isn’t that correct?”

“ . . . !”

Hayate saw it precisely .  On the East Continent, the threat to Grid was the yangbans .  The real gods who created or taught the yangbans didn’t pose a direct threat to Grid .  It was natural .  In the first place, the Five Seniors never appeared in front of Grid .  Hayate responded to Grid’s silent confirmation, “The gods who now rule the East are the ones who were defeated in the war of the gods . ”

In other words—

“They were wounded and lost their authority . Their influence is very small compared to the impression that people usually have about omnipotent gods . That’s why you’re still safe . ”

“ . . . . . . ” 

“On the other hand, dragons are different from the gods of the East . They have good ears and no scruples about their actions . If they hear your epic then they can hurt you at any time . ”

The words that Hayate wanted to convey were simple .  He was telling Grid to be careful not to become hostile to dragons .


[The Absolute’s anxious warning has covered your epic . ]

[The sixth page of the epic remains incomplete . ]

[No one will ever be able to see the secret words hidden on the blank page . ]



Grid was full of turmoil in many ways and closed his mouth .  The epic would end just like this? It was the worst development for Grid, who got rewarded for every epic .

‘It is a class about the epics yet an epic was messed up . . . !’

The Duke of Wisdom and Magic Swordsman of the Epics classes that Grid possessed had few unique effects .  Among them, the Magic Swordsman of the Epics increased the total amount of sword energy and mana by 20% as well as ‘writing epics . ’ Nevertheless, Grid’s satisfaction was high because of the rewards that came with each epic .

Yes, after all, it was a class about the epics .  Now the epic had ended in an incomplete state .  It was the concept where the Magic Swordsman of the Epics became stronger by being ‘known’ through the epics . It also meant that the reward had gone away .

“ . . . ?”

Grid was frowning with frustration when a new notification window emerged in his vision .


[The story that isn’t recorded will be passed down through word of mouth . However, it should be remembered that people with loose mouths will be hated . ]

[The class specific skill of Magic Swordsman of the Epics, ‘Oral Traditions,’ has been activated . ]


[Oral Traditions]

[Share the contents of the epics with others . The number of times it can be shared is once per secret story .

Skill activation condition: Deliver a secret story to one target you have the maximum affinity with .

Skill activation effect: The target’s stats will increase or a new skill or title will awaken . The stat increase, new skills, and title effects are affected by the content of the secret story . ]


“ . . . !”

He had always expected it .  Just like Pagma's Descendant, he believed that the Magic Swordsman of the Epics and Duke of Wisdom classes would someday open up new class specific effects .  In particular, Magic Swordsman of the Epics was a growth type legendary class so he had more expectations .  These expectations didn’t betray Grid .

Oral Tradition—simply put, this skill that raised an NPC or pet was necessary for Grid who had a high dependence on his colleagues .

‘Hayate is an Absolute yet even he feels his limits . ’

No matter how strong he was alone, he needed colleagues to support him . Colleagues should be strong together . . .

Grid’s face brightened as he thought for a long time .

He liked the new skill of Magic Swordsman of the Epics .

‘It is a pity that it is only one oral tradition per story but time can solve this problem . I have to keep writing more secret stories . ’

People who had loose mouths would be hated so the number of times it could be used was limited . This much was compelling .  Grid’s smile grew stronger as he analyzed it .

“I was worried you might be upset . I’m glad . ”

Hayate was relieved to see it .  Grid replied politely, “Aren’t you giving me advice? I’m happy to hear it . ”

“Thank you for understanding . Remember one thing . Dragons aren’t targets to be fought . They must be avoided . ”

“I will keep that in mind . . . ”

Even the great Tower of Wisdom didn’t say that they would subdue the dragon . Their main task was to curb the emergence of the dragons .

‘I was too presumptuous . ’

He declared that he would smash a dragon in front of a Dragon Slayer . . .  

The ashamed Grid suddenly became worried .

“One of my colleagues has a hostile relationship with a dragon . ”

It was none other than Pon .  Before meeting Grid, Pon had become hostile to Fire Dragon Trauka and was suffering from Trauka’s curse . What type of events had he experienced during training? Not long ago, Grid saw the power of curses on the East Continent and felt uneasy .  Pon was on Trauka’s hostile list and it was the same for the Overgeared Guild and Overgeared Kingdom that he belonged to .

“Is there a possibility that the dragon might invade the Overgeared Kingdom one day?”

“It is safe to say that there is no such possibility . The dragons are obsessed with their own lairs . They think it is a loss to leave to hunt a human . No, they wouldn’t consider it in the first place . ”

It was the same as Sticks’ opinion .  

Hayate once again warned Grid, “However, there is a possibility their attitude will change once they learn that a place contains many people they are hostile to . Then they might leave their lair even if it is troublesome . That’s why there are dozens of cloaking spells on the Tower of Wisdom . ”

“It would be a disaster if the dragon becomes hostile to me as well . ”

There was also Braham in the Overgeared Kingdom . Braham had a history of stealing from Fire Dragon Trauka .  If King Grid of the Overgeared Kingdom where Pon and Braham were located became hostile to Trauka then he would firmly stomp on them .  Grid’s thoughts were far away while Hayate snapped his fingers .  Hayate’s mental world was lifted and the night sky greeted Grid .  Hayate checked the moon’s position and lightly pushed Grid .

“It is time to go to sleep . ”

“Ah, yes . ”

Grid activated the red phoenix’s heart . He took a deep breath to relax his tension and finally used the new Storm of the Fire God .  The biggest advantage of Storm of the Fire God was that it was activated immediately .  There was no delay, unlike the days of the Storm Demonic Energy Field .

Huge flames suddenly covered the whole area .  The divine flames and flames of willpower swirled quietly but strongly .  Originally, this was the end of it but it was different now .  There was a silver galaxy present in the world of red flames .  It was sword energy .  It was also infinite sword energy .


[Storm of the Fire God]

[You have realized the dignity of the newly born fire god .

-Field Effect 1-

[Divine Flames]

Unleash the latent flames in the Red Phoenix’s 9th Heart to form a storm of divine flames .

Once a target with a reduced healing effect attempts to heal, ‘Rage of the Fire God’ will cause 15,000 fixed damage and will potentially reverse the healing effect .

“Ohh . . . !”

It was full of power .  Grid was swept away by the infinite sword energy within the Storm of the Fire God and felt like he was invincible .  He was unable to control his excitement as the fighting energy around his body changed .  It seemed to be swept away by the infinite sword energy and then went through the process of mixing and integrating .  Grid had achieved his purpose .


[The fighting energy of the Hero King is fused with the infinite sword energy . ]

[Due to fighting energy, the power of all skills that consume sword energy is increased by 20% . ]

[From now on, fighting energy will always remain at 50 . This number will grow as your level rises . ]

“ . . . . . . ”

He would never let go of the number one ranking until he died .  Grid vowed as he was surrounded by Storm of the Fire God and a deeper purple-red fighting energy than before .
