Magicless Extra: The Villain’s Survival Method – Chapter 57

𝐂𝐡𝐚𝐩𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝟓𝟕: 𝐏𝐞𝐚𝐜𝐞𝐦𝐚𝐤𝐞𝐫 (3)

Oswald and his companions descend the stairs leading underground.

In front was Gilgamesh, who could handle any situation, followed by Royman, Miguel, Yuilhan, Azel, and Oswald.

After descending the long, circular staircase. . . they were shocked to find themselves in a vast underground chamber.

“Isn’t this. . . a gate?”

Azel Solcrushid was the first to speak. As he had said, there was a gate in the huge cavity.

” The demonic power is considerable. . . . . . “

The walls were tinged blue due to the demonic power that had filled the gate, along with blue branches growing like vines on the walls.

The peculiarity was that there were fruits on the branches. . . that fruit was. . . . . .

” The apple of truth. “

A fruit that could awaken some of the truth of this world with just one bite. It was a fruit that was more valuable than any elixir to wizards. Of course, it now possessed demonic power, so there was the disadvantage of being corrupted while gaining the truth.

‘𝘛𝘩𝘦 𝘶𝘯𝘥𝘦𝘳𝘨𝘳𝘰𝘶𝘯𝘥 𝘰𝘧 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘭 𝘤𝘢𝘱𝘪𝘵𝘢𝘭 𝘊𝘦𝘯𝘵𝘳𝘢𝘭 𝘪𝘴 𝘧𝘶𝘭𝘭 𝘰𝘧 𝘴𝘶𝘳𝘱𝘳𝘪𝘴𝘦𝘴.’

Anyway, this was too big for this party to handle.

“We’d better get out of here. What good would it do to get caught just to let people know about us?”

Everyone nodded at Oswald’s words, but only Gilgamesh seemed a little hesitant.

” Gil. . . . . . “

Then something caught Oswald’s attention. . . . . .

He immediately turned his head towards the passageway, where a man wearing the same silver mask as them was standing. To be exact, it was a man wearing a tricorn hat, a black longcoat, and a black muffler.

” P. . . Peacemaker? “

” I was watching with interest, wondering who would dare to use my pseudonym. . . and I witnessed this. “

‘𝘐 𝘵𝘩𝘰𝘶𝘨𝘩𝘵 𝘩𝘦 𝘸𝘢𝘴 𝘢𝘯 𝘰𝘳𝘥𝘪𝘯𝘢𝘳𝘺 𝘚𝘸𝘰𝘳𝘥 𝘔𝘢𝘴𝘵𝘦𝘳. . . 𝘩𝘢𝘴 𝘩𝘦 𝘢𝘭𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘥𝘺 𝘣𝘦𝘤𝘰𝘮𝘦 𝘢 𝘎𝘳𝘢𝘯𝘥𝘮𝘢𝘴𝘵𝘦𝘳?’

Even though he had approached this far, his sensory level did not detect him. The fact that he had not been detected even though he had detected Gilgamesh, who had been a Sword Master when his sensory level was lower, meant that he was a Grandmaster.

” One is a strange guy who doesn’t have any magical power but possesses holy power. . . another one is facing the wall of a Grandmaster. . . and the rest are not even Sword Masters yet. “

Tension filled the air. They were on the verge of revealing their status as academy students and begging for their lives.

” Interesting. I originally had a few fans. . . but I didn’t know there would be fools who would copy me to this extent and risk their lives. But. . . may I ask why you were trying to leave? “

The real Peacemaker put pressure on Oswald with his gentle aura.

Oswald continued to speak, not yielding to the pressure he felt from all directions. He was able to resist because he had a high strength level that could be considered divine power.

“To. . . notify. . . the CID . . . was the idea.”

” Oh, to endure my aura without any magical power. . . you are certainly unique. Fine! I don’t mind hanging out with you guys this time. I was thinking about the Starbion Marquis anyway. . . it’s perfect timing. “

As he said this, the real Peacemaker approached them and held out his hand. To be exact, he asked for Oswald’s handshake.

” Are you the leader of these guys? “

” I’m. . . not. The leader is. . . this. . . . . . “

Oswald informed him that the real leader was Gilgamesh, while watching the real Peacemaker asking for his handshake.

” Hmm. . . . . . From your behavior, you seem to be closer to being the leader. Okay, anyway, let’s do it. If this operation ends successfully, it wouldn’t be bad to take you in and let you work as a Peacemaker. “

As he said this, the real Peacemaker approached the gate.

” What are you doing? Are you not going to go? “

At those words, Oswald looked at his companions, and they nodded with determined eyes.

” Let’s go. “

As they entered the gate, a different feeling from before pressed down on their bodies. To be exact, it was due to the dense, highly pure demonic power and the changed gravity.

‘𝘊𝘰𝘮𝘱𝘭𝘦𝘵𝘦 𝘵𝘦𝘳𝘳𝘢𝘧𝘰𝘳𝘮𝘪𝘯𝘨. . . . . .’

There were even obelisks erected around the gate, and blue dodecahedron gems emitted light above the obelisks.

Judging from the enormous amount of demonic power felt there. . . it seemed that these obelisks were devices that somewhat controlled the demonic power flowing out of the gate.

‘𝘖𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘳𝘸𝘪𝘴𝘦, 𝘪𝘵 𝘸𝘰𝘶𝘭𝘥 𝘩𝘢𝘷𝘦 𝘣𝘦𝘦𝘯 𝘰𝘣𝘴𝘦𝘳𝘷𝘦𝘥 𝘣𝘺 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘊𝘐𝘋 𝘰𝘣𝘴𝘦𝘳𝘷𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯 𝘱𝘰𝘴𝘵. . . . . .’

As they looked around the interior, they saw a city full of skyscrapers on one side. The tall city buildings, the small flying vehicles flying between them, and even the battleships floating in the sky. . . it was so advanced that they almost suspected they had entered a science fiction world.

‘𝘛𝘩𝘢𝘵’𝘴 𝘸𝘩𝘺 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘊𝘩𝘢𝘰𝘴 𝘰𝘧 𝘛𝘳𝘶𝘵𝘩 𝘪𝘴 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘮𝘰𝘴𝘵 𝘥𝘢𝘯𝘨𝘦𝘳𝘰𝘶𝘴.’

The Chaos forces of Truth were the ones with the best civilization that made full use of their knowledge because they possessed knowledge that transcended multiple worlds.

Even the battleships alone were far more advanced than the airships of the western continent. If the airships were made of ordinary wooden ships with added balloons and magical parts, then the battleships were made of metal with jet engines attached.

” This is not another world? “

As Peacemaker said, this place was a completely different world.

‘𝘛𝘩𝘦 𝘱𝘳𝘰𝘣𝘭𝘦𝘮 𝘪𝘴 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘪𝘵 𝘸𝘰𝘶𝘭𝘥𝘯’𝘵 𝘣𝘦 𝘢𝘯 𝘦𝘹𝘢𝘨𝘨𝘦𝘳𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯 𝘵𝘰 𝘴𝘢𝘺 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘢𝘳𝘤𝘩𝘥𝘶𝘬𝘦 𝘥𝘦𝘮𝘰𝘯 𝘰𝘧 𝘵𝘳𝘶𝘵𝘩 𝘪𝘴 𝘩𝘦𝘳𝘦?’

” I think it would be better to back off and ask the CID for help. “

” Will that make you famous as a Peacemaker? “

” It’s not a matter of fame, it’s a matter of a level that’s too much to handle? “

” What are you so afraid of? “

” If we happen to meet an archduke-level demon. . . everyone here will be wiped out. “

Moreover, this place had been completely terraformed into a Chaos world. It meant that it was different from fighting an archduke-level in a normal Century. This was because an archduke was like a god in this place.

” Hmm. . . . . . “

While the real Peacemaker was contemplating, a distortion suddenly formed where they were, and the distortion soon moved them elsewhere.

” Damn it. “

They had already been discovered by their enemies.

The place they reappeared was inside a stadium that looked like a huge soccer stadium. There were no spectators, but. . . the guy they never wanted to see again was standing before them. It was. . . . . .

‘𝘊𝘢𝘳𝘥𝘨𝘢 𝘰𝘧 𝘛𝘳𝘶𝘵𝘩. . . 𝘐 𝘯𝘦𝘷𝘦𝘳 𝘵𝘩𝘰𝘶𝘨𝘩𝘵 𝘐’𝘥 𝘮𝘦𝘦𝘵 𝘩𝘪𝘮 𝘩𝘦𝘳𝘦. . . . . .’

He was only at the level of a Grandmaster outside. . . but inside this gate dungeon, Cardga was on par with an elder dragon.

In a word, it meant he was a demigod-level being.

Against such a demigod, one Grandmaster and one close to it, three who had not even reached Master, and one who had reached Master level. . . it was suicide.

Nevertheless, that stupid First Prince was approaching Cardga with interest. . . . . .

” Are you a chaos demon? “

【You are the infamous Peacemaker.】

” Oh, has my pseudonym become known to you guys too? “

【We are seekers of truth. . . a place where all the knowledge in the world gathers. 】

” Do you mean you have knowledge about me too? “

【That’s right, First Prince Valentine Taigon Imperial of the Empire. 】

” . . . . . . “

The real Peacemaker, no, the First Prince Valentine, was a little flustered, as if he had not expected his identity to be revealed so easily.

【And. . . the runaway dog that escaped has finally fallen into my hands. 】

‘𝘋𝘢𝘮𝘯. . . . . . 𝘠𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘮𝘦𝘮𝘰𝘳𝘺 𝘪𝘴 𝘵𝘰𝘰 𝘨𝘰𝘰𝘥.’

“Runaway dog?”

【That’s right, First Prince Valentine. . . . . . 】

” There are no dogs here? “

” . . . . . . “

【. . . . . . 】

The First Prince silenced him without hesitation.

【It’s funny, do you not know about Chronos’ stray dog? Or do you know and are you trying to fool me by pretending not to know? 】

” Aaaa, I see that you guys call demon hunters hunting dogs. By the way. . . was there a demon hunter here? Oh! Is it you? That strange guy with no magical power. “

Valentine looked at Oswald and said, Oswald sighed.

‘𝘞𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘩𝘦𝘭𝘭 𝘪𝘴 𝘩𝘦 𝘴𝘰 𝘤𝘰𝘯𝘧𝘪𝘥𝘦𝘯𝘵 𝘢𝘣𝘰𝘶𝘵?’

【Now. Let’s take care of what we couldn’t do last time, and let’s clean up the little rats who dared to come here. . . . . . 】

Demonic power surged from Cardga’s body. Boundless demonic power. . . . . .

However, at that moment, Valentine took out a small hourglass from his arms.

‘𝘛𝘩𝘦 𝘩𝘰𝘶𝘳𝘨𝘭𝘢𝘴𝘴 𝘰𝘧 𝘵𝘪𝘮𝘦?’

Oswald also knew this mythical-grade artifact.

It was an artifact that could rewind 24 hours once a month, and it could be split to rewind time and used once a day.

Soon, as Valentine activated the hourglass, everything around him began to crumble and scatter like sand, and the same was true for Oswald and the others.

Ting!

[𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐬𝐲𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐦’𝐬 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐭𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐭𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐩𝐥𝐚𝐲𝐞𝐫’𝐬 𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐝.]

[𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐡𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐠𝐥𝐚𝐬𝐬 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐢𝐦𝐞 𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐫𝐟𝐞𝐫𝐞𝐬 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐩𝐥𝐚𝐲𝐞𝐫’𝐬 𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐝.]

[𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐬𝐲𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐦’𝐬 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐭𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐛𝐥𝐨𝐜𝐤𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐡𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐠𝐥𝐚𝐬𝐬’𝐬 𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐫𝐟𝐞𝐫𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐞.]

When the body that had crumbled like sand returned to its original state, Oswald was back to the situation before entering the gate.

” Okay, let’s ask for support as you said. “

As he said this, Oswald watched the First Prince naturally talking about requesting support and. . . . . .

” Wouldn’t it have been better if you had done that earlier? “

” Huh? “

Valentine was bewildered by Oswald’s response, when. . . . . .

” As I thought, you remember too. “

It seemed that even Gilgamesh remembered.

‘𝘍𝘰𝘳 𝘮𝘦, 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘴𝘺𝘴𝘵𝘦𝘮’𝘴 𝘱𝘳𝘰𝘵𝘦𝘤𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯? 𝘚𝘰𝘮𝘦𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘤𝘢𝘭𝘭𝘦𝘥 𝘤𝘰𝘨𝘯𝘪𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯 𝘱𝘳𝘰𝘵𝘦𝘤𝘵𝘦𝘥 𝘮𝘦. . . 𝘉𝘶𝘵 𝘎𝘪𝘭𝘨𝘢𝘮𝘦𝘴𝘩. . . . . .’

The time that Valentine had turned back was short, but it was still a regression. This meant that it could not have a major impact on Gilgamesh, who had already regressed. That was why he was reacting like that.

” You two, what’s the matter? I thought this guy was special from the beginning. . . but you seem to be even more special? “

In the end, the party retreated today. . . Oswald and Gilgamesh were meeting the First Prince Valentine separately.

” Let me introduce myself first, my name is Oswald Winchester. “

” I’m Gilgamesh Arkad. “

” Oh, the Arkad Earl family of the Winchester Earl family. . . that’s why you’re even more special. “

One was the Arkad family, an old family that had existed since the days when the empire was a kingdom, and the other was from the Winchester family, who were margraves and electors of the senate.

The Arkad family was a nondescript family, so it was strange that they had raised such a promising candidate, and it was also strange that a demon hunter produced from the Winchester family.

” More than that, aren’t you surprised that I’m a prince? “

” Well. . . I already knew. “

” You too? “

” Yes, that’s right. “

” How? Not even the information guild has noticed. My closest aides don’t even know that I’m Peacemaker? “

Gilgamesh seemed to be thinking about something, then told him how they knew about him.

” We have regressed from the future to the past. “

” What? Hahaha. Somehow, I found it strange that you weren’t affected by the hourglass of time. . . it was because you had already experienced time travel once. So, how was the future? “

” Chaos eventually invaded Century, and the world was heading towards its end. “

” Ugh. . . . . . That’s not the future I expected. “

” But we can prevent or prepare for that invasion. If Your Highness helps us. . . . . . “

At Gilgamesh’s words, Valentine showed his intention to decline in a self-deprecating voice.

” What help can I, a mere prince, provide? “

Oswald stepped forward.

” In the future I saw, Your Highness ascended to the throne. “

” What? What are you talking about? The future you saw? “

At those words, Gilgamesh roughly explained about the world line where different possible futures opened up, and after listening to Gilgamesh’s explanation, the First Prince nodded, thinking it was possible.

” So that’s why the Winchester family is on my side? “

” Yes. . . . . . Well, that’s it. “

” It was strange that they were on my side even though they had nothing to gain as a latecomer. . . so it was because of the youngest son. “

” In addition to that, the Third Prince Douglas and the Second Princess Arwen are related to Chaos. “

“Well, that’s. . . It’s already a public secret.”

It was just that they couldn’t do anything because they didn’t have direct evidence. . . . . .

” But this time, we can deal a big blow to the Third Prince. “

If the Third Prince caused a riot in the capital, he would have to deal with the Starbion Marquis, the Sword’s public security officer who could mobilize the most troops.

“Moreover, it will be in the form of Starbion’s earl accusing his own father. . . Starbion’s earl might not be able to support his father. Then what can he do? You can’t help but ask for support, right?”

And so Valentine hinted to Oswald to ask for support as soon as possible.
