12. The new hunter’s Dormitory
He waited for a long time at the archery range until just before leaving for the camp, but Shin Do-Gyeom did not show up.
Ye-Hyeon eventually left the training center without saying anything.
When Ye-Hyeon arrived at the camp, he followed the manager around the facility and sat face to face, and listened to the explanation.
Other new hunters came with Ye-Hyeon from the training center, and the managers were attached to them.
There was no difference between the D-class Hunter’s camp and the F-class Hunter’s camp.
Instead, the difference in comfort according to the density was clear.
These were all single rooms, but in the F-class dormitory, four people, sometimes six people, shared the same size room.
Still, due to the lack of seats, the F-class dormitory was steadily expanded three years later.
“You can stay in the camp for up to a year, and you can leave the camp at any time if you want before that. However, since you left the camp, you can no longer get help as a new hunter, so please keep that in mind.”
“Okay,” Ye-Hyeon replied.
“Hunter Choi Ye-Hyeon will be used to wipe out the remaining monsters at the gate he cleared in the future. It won’t be too dangerous with veteran hunters, but don’t let your guard down. It’s not easy to dispose of the remaining monsters. I recommend you to continue working on the remaining monsters for the time being even after you leave the camp.”
“The monster continues to pop up until you get rid of the boss. After clearing it, it doesn’t increase anymore, but it doesn’t mean the monsters evaporate like smoke. Even if you don’t process the remaining monsters, the gate disappears completely, but the reason why you put your manpower into it was to get items or materials that monsters drop.”
‘Yoon Seung-Jae is probably fighting with monsters right now, right?’ [Ye-Hyeon’s thoughts]
Perhaps excited to be a hunter, Yoon Seung-Jae said he applied for the monster sweep operation as soon as he arrived at the camp.
Ye-Hyeon wanted to greet Yoon Seung-Jae this morning, but he said he was leaving.
He remembered the text saying he was sorry, so the corners of Ye-Hyeon’s mouth became loose.
He said he was going to a C-class gate, so he’ll be back tomorrow or the day after tomorrow.
For experienced hunters, a small gate sweep would be enough in a day, but when Ye-Hyeon accompanied new hunters, he purposely turned slowly to practice spending the night in the dungeon for safety.
“Let’s see… There’s a party leaving for the C-class small gate in two hours. Will it be a little early?” Ye-Hyeon asked
“No. Put your name in.” The employee replied.
He didn’t mean to wash his fingers while waiting for Yoon Seung-Jae to return for two or three days anyway.
Ye-Hyeon also wanted to explore the dungeon as a healer, not a porter.
Ye-Hyeon visited the support center to receive supplies.
Since only basic equipment was prepared, there was no equipment exclusively for healers.
Ye-Hyeon chose leather armor without difficulty.
There was a robe that a wizard could wear, but it was very awkward and embarrassing.
“What kind of weapon would you like?”
“Well, what kind of weapon does a healer use?” Ye-Hyeon asked.
“Healer? Usually, they prefer daggers or staff.”
The employee recommended calmly after hearing he is a healer.
‘It’s uncomfortable because I don’t know anything about Healers.’ Ye-Hyeon thought.
He was neither attracted to the dagger nor the staff.
After thinking for a while, Ye-Hyeon pointed to the long sword.
“Just give me that,” Ye-Hyeon said.
It seems Healer won’t use a weapon, but Ye-Hyeon thought it would be better to take what’s familiar.
Ye-Hyeon held the sword as a test.
The basic equipment provided by the Hunter Association was quite good.
Even after leaving the training camp, it’s okay to continue using this weapon for the time being.
“Take the potion here, too. You can get 6 recovery potions and 3 mana potions again every Monday. If you finish using it before that, you have to pay an additional amount. It would be your fault if you use too much.” The employee said.
“Can’t I get a Mana potion instead of a recovery potion?”
“It’s possible, but its two recovery potions are for one mana potion. Are you fine with that?”
Ye-Hyeon received two recovery potions and five mana potions and inserted bottles into the belt slot one by one.
Since Ye-Hyeon got inventory skills, he has never filled his waist with potions, so clattering every time he walked was a little awkward.
Ye-Hyeon, who finished preparing, hurried to the waiting room.
A little more than ten people were sitting in a circle along the round table.
Ye-Hyeon walked to the empty seat and quickly looked through the status window.
‘There are nine new hunters and three veteran hunters?’ Ye-Hyeon thought.
As soon as Ye-Hyeon sat down, one more came in.
It was a hunter with a gray robe pressed down to the middle of his nose, his black hair that stretched long to his waist, and his pale skin that turned blue creating a bleak atmosphere.
“Oh, hello. I’m the party leader, Seo Soo-Hee.” Seo Soo-hee stuttered and introduced herself while bending her back to almost 90 degrees, no, 120 degrees.
The new hunters who were sitting tried to hide their embarrassment and clapped awkwardly.
Name: Seo Soo-Hee
Occupation: Shadow illusionist (S)
Title: Hunter (C), Witch (C), Hunter Association Staff (E), Barley Sack (F)
Skill: Shadow Manipulation (S), Mental Transfer (S), Shadow Capture (A)
It’s a Class S job, but she’s a Class C hunter? but it wasn’t low. It was a unique spec in many ways.
‘Is it because she doesn’t have confidence?’ Ye-Hyeon tilted his head while looking at her shoulders and bent back.
“Sorry for being late. The meeting ended late… ”
Ye-Hyeon wondered because it was rare to leave in the afternoon. There seemed to be a problem with the schedule of veteran hunters.
Usually, they wanted to turn around one more dungeon and raise the ranking while taking care of the new hunter, so most of the hunters who came to the camp were members of the association.
It was understaffed.
“If we want to go around the dungeon together, we need to know each other’s abilities, so let’s introduce ourselves one by one. I’m Park Song-Ah. My weapon is a sword.”
Another veteran hunter began to lead the conversation, perhaps frustrated by Seo Soo-hee’s stuttering.
” I’m Park Ji-Tae, a tanker, and I’m confident in being one.”
“I’m Lee Heejin. I can handle water, but I’m not good at aiming. I’ll be as careful as I can, but you might get a little wet. I apologize in advance.”
When holding a party, it was common to consist of one tanker, two close dealers, and one long-distance dealer. As for veteran hunters, there was a similar percentage when looking at the jobs of new hunters.
When allocating, it seemed to be intentionally planned to match Ability.
Ye-Hyeon paid attention to every one of them. They are now clumsy new hunters, Newbie, but they were promising hunters who were likely to become S-, A-, and B-class hunters in the future. And it may be another target.
Finally, it’s Ye-Hyeon’s turn. “I’m Choi Ye-Hyeon, a healer.” Ye-Hyeon finished the introduction with a calm smile. Nevertheless, even those who were bored were curious.
It’s been a long time since he introduced himself and received a favorable response. Seo Soo-Hee, sitting next to him, bent her lips looking at Ye-Hyeon. It may be an expression of favor, but it wasn’t that noticeable because the eyes were covered by the hood.
“Is this the first time anyone is clearing up dungeons?”
Ye-Hyeon was the only one who raised his hand.
Park Song-ah nodded at him.
“Okay. We’ll watch you more carefully, healer.”
“Can I continue, Hunter Seo Soo-Hee?”
“Tanker Yoo Dong-Hyeon and Tanker Park Ji-Tae, please take the lead. When there are two tankers, it’s important to keep pace. Park Ji-Tae, please continue to check on Yoo Dong-Hyeon. Then… ”
The captain was Seo Soo-Hee, and Park Song-Ah naturally took charge of the briefing. I guess the title “barley bag” means “barley bag that has been saved?
Ye-Hyeon felt a little sorry for Seo Soo-hee, who kept an awkward smile whether she knew her evaluation or not.
“Hunter Choi Ye-Hyeon, please stand at the end with Hunter Seo Soo-Hee. Practice putting safety first and continuing to understand the overall situation and the status of the party members.”
“Now I’ll give you brief information about the dungeon. The gate we were assigned to today was a gate that occurred 32km southeast of the camp five days ago, and it has now been cleared. As a wetland topography, a lizard-type monster named Lizadri appears.”
“Lizadri is a monster covered in dark green scales, and it appears frequently in lower dungeons.“ It was unusual for a lizard-like monster to walk on two legs.
‘It wouldn’t be too difficult with four veteran hunters! Of course, no matter how weak he was’ Ye-Hyeon thought.
It was a monster he could not even dare to deal with.
“Lizadri usually attacks with sharp teeth and nails. The speed is slow, so it won’t be difficult to deal with. There are times when it will attack with its tail, but be careful of that. The tail is separated and it moves even if it is separated.”
When the story of the tail came out, Ye-Hyeon frowned without realizing it.
Before returning to Korea, Ye-Hyeon was seriously injured when he hit his thigh while being tied to a Lizadri’s tail at the gate where he was first dispatched as a porter.
Ye-Hyeon rubbed his left thigh.
The blurry wound did not appear, but the unpleasant sensation remained.
When the story of the monster came out, the atmosphere in the waiting room suddenly subsided.
“Do you have any questions? If you don’t have one, we will leave. If you have any questions later, feel free to ask.” Park Song-Ah did not look annoyed and was surprisingly kind.
There are several occasions in the story so far, where it mentioned return to Korea. I don’t recall it mentioned he went overseas to study or anything.
I think it should say “before he return to the past ” instead? That makes more sense to me, if it is indeed what it is supposed to say.
Ohh I got it, I’ll do it to avoid more confusion
