Chapter 3 – Incurable Complaint -1-
Today, I watched from a distance the academy cadets who were bloodied by bandits.
I wonder if there were many other people interested in this work besides me, there were many signs hiding here and there.
‘There are no sick people. It’s not at the knights department, it’s at the level of a knight appealer.’
Seeing the unexpected situation, I returned home.
It’s hard to believe, but I’m excited about the start. That pounding seems to squeeze the heart.
“This is next…”
I sat at home and took out a dusty book.
Like the Hidden Peace record, I should have applied at least security magic and preservation magic, but the condition was unreasonable.
The story is written down as it comes to mind, so the contents are crude, but there was no shortage of stimulating and awakening memories that had fallen asleep.
“Now the academy is going around looking for new faculty.”
The conclusion is fixed.
After appointing a knight for a nominal purpose as an instructor, he invites an adventurer who excels in real life as an assistant instructor.
I can’t remember the name of the adventurer chosen as an assistant instructor, but I remember the appearance.
It was an axe with a red beard.
‘Was there a guy like that in the guild? Who is it?’
I’m not sure I’ve seen them in the guild because I’ve lived without caring about men.
From the hair color to the red beard, there are not one or two guys.
In the end, even if you remember, it’s useless.
The adventurer who plays the role of assistant instructor is also a McGuffin to prove the excellence of the 100th entrance student.
What is more important to me now than useless things.
‘How to infiltrate the academy.’
‘Akarite’, which forms the foundation of this world, is a world where the academy is the main axis.
That fact will not change until the main character returns to Korea in the third year of the academy.
That’s why there are various hidden pieces in the academy, the protagonist’s main activity area.
Most of them are higher level and more practical than the hidden pieces that exist outside the capital that I have been looking for so far.
‘Cadets are crazy.’
Am I entering as a cadet? The age is already late, and if you enter, you will be admitted to at least the 101st class.
The main character must have already sucked up all the sweet water and burped.
I also thought about killing the main character, but that was put on hold for now.
This is because the question of the Hidden Peace, which does not exist where it should be, has not been resolved at all.
Killing the main character becomes a switch, so it’s difficult even if the hidden piece doesn’t appear.
Even if it kills.
It’s a problem because that bastard’s family owns more great things than I thought.
In order to kill in the first place, the family itself must be completely destroyed to be safe.
Even if you spin the book around and think about it, it’s still best to infiltrate it yourself.
‘Did you say the 100th entrance ceremony was a festival?
“That’s not a joke. It’s sad-“
A giant figure over 2m that entered the dean’s office.
The dean narrowed his eyes as he turned his gaze to his empty right arm.
“Watch out for Roland’s mouth. Even having his head attached and his family alive is a blessing from His Majesty the Emperor.”
In the current empire, the power of the imperial family is absolute.
As Asen Primilar supports the imperial family, it has power comparable to that of the sky, to the extent that there has never been a time when the imperial authority was this strong.
Is the Three Princes injured?
There is nothing to say even if the academy is abolished and the blood relatives of those involved become the dew of the executioner.
The former instructor’s family must have already disappeared, but he survived by exchanging an arm in equal measure.
I am proud to say that it was the greatest luck in my life.
“Oi- so tell me what you called me for.”
The dean carefully put together the words floating in his head and mouth.
Even his close friend, whom he has known for a long time, is a former knight after all.
If he feels offended, it might be a problem to invite another knight as an instructor.
“How far do you understand this case?”
“I know the rumors I hear. And what the Emperor ordered.”
I said it in such a loud voice in the open academy plaza, there’s no way I didn’t know.
Doran Escaro let out a deep sigh and raised the teacup the magistrate had prepared.
“I’m thinking of various plans right now. Like merging the Swordsmanship Faculty and Knight Faculty…”
Integrating with the Faculty of Swordsmanship, where classes focus on practical combat, unlike the Faculty of Knights, which focuses on ceremonies and etiquette.
Otherwise, the reputation of the Faculty of Engineering could disappear.
Doran took his word out and glanced at Roland’s face, but there was no sign of displeasure in his face.
Rather, he nodded his head as if he understood.
“It’s not bad, but is that a principled solution?”
“As a former knight, do you view this matter positively as the Faculty of Engineering may disappear? Unexpectedly…”
Haha!! You narrow-minded friend!! After crying like a parrot, you’re not good at reading the minds of people close to you.”
Doran laughed at his words.
Normally, I would have been mad at the madman again for scratching my insides.
I was able to understand his inner meaning now that most of his feelings were detached.
“To be honest. The integration of the faculties is something to be discussed later. First of all, we are thinking of a way to reduce the dissatisfaction of the knight faculties by selecting a new instructor from the article and inviting a veteran adventurer as an assistant instructor.”
“It’s a surer way than integrating the undergraduates. But do you think nobles will accept adventurers? Don’t you think that adventurers are a lowly job right now?”
Roland perfectly understands Doran’s values.
You probably know better than I do.
He succeeded as a magician while possessing the noble consciousness of his chosen people.
He knows what adventurers think, so Roland can’t help but be quite surprised by this choice.
“…It’s not that my thoughts have completely changed, but I’ll just say that my values have changed a little. It’s incurable.”
“Isn’t it too cheap to learn that much with one arm? Khehehe”
Roland squeezed through the gap, as if he finally thought it was okay to play a little.
Answering that question and getting angry is what he rather wants.
Ignoring the provocation, Doran opened the drawer with his left hand and took out a wad of paper.
“If you’re an adventurer, you know a little bit, right? I’m a candidate. Try helping me at least once.”
Roland snorted at her and started flipping through her papers.
Quickly flipping through the paper, he took out one and placed it on the table.
“Here’s the guy at least.”
An adventurer with more than 20 years of experience and an axe, an uncommon weapon.
He was a man with a red beard as his signature.
As a solo adventurer, he was moving briskly in the silver ranks.
“Anyway? I don’t think there’s anything lacking at this level.”
“Don’t you know why I can’t pick the other guys?”
“What is the problem?”
Roland brushed back his gray hair and closed his eyes in his stress.
He pressed his eyes with his thick, stick-like fingers.
‘This is why wizards…’
He unfolded the rest of the papers in his hand.
“Here! This guy looks the most suitable, but he’s still active as a party!! How are you going to get him out? And if you force him out, do you think the others will be there?”
A high-class adventurer could not be careless with even a decent number of nobles.
For commoners to stand on an equal footing with nobles, there is nothing more suitable than adventurers.
In a situation where there is a party, pay money and take out only one person?
They would stick together like glue for as little as several years and as many as ten years, but it would be close to impossible to get one person out.
If that succeeds, that’s a problem. There was no way the abandoned party members would be alone.
Even if the adventurer is only gold grade, he doesn’t care about the nobles.
It’s about figuring out how much their military power is worth.
There is no way to catch it if you turn your eyes away and hit it once and run away to the Federation.
After hearing Roland’s spattering explanation, Doran nodded his head slightly.
“I see, so this red-haired guy who is promoting as a soloist is perfect…”
“Do you understand about adventurers now? What do you learn from reading books every day?”
“It’s noisy. Then let’s do it with this guy, tell the administrator right away—”
“For a moment!!!”
Doran frowned at Roland’s voice that reverberated through the dean’s office.
“Can I introduce you to a really useful adventurer? I chose from among the candidates, but I think that if you use a clumsy guy like this, another accident could happen. I’m saying this because I think it would be a bit sad if my friend was blown up to his left arm.”
“…Don’t say gross things and say it properly. What do you want?”
Roland pointed a thick finger at Doran’s collection in the cabinet.
Expensive drinks that are hard to find anywhere these days. Doran was also a waste of money, so I didn’t drink it and just collected it.
“You’re not going to use it as a decoration until you die of old age, right? I don’t drink alone. Let’s drink together.”
“Next time, if your neck, not your left arm, is blown off, who will drink that alcohol~ No, if your left arm is blown off, you won’t even be able to open the lidhaha!!!”
Doran’s expression didn’t change, but her face blushed.
Roland’s provocation went perfectly.
“Start by explaining who the adventurer you say is useful. If I’m not satisfied, I’ll kick you out right away.”
