Swordmaster Healer - Episode 55
Chapter 19 - Eroding Dungeon (1)
"What do you mean?" Sung Joon asked.
"Yes, we desperately need your help, Mr. Kang Sung Joon. Excuse me, but where are you now?" asked Hyun Sung.
"I just finished a dungeon solo run a little bit ago, so I'm on my way to the Dungeon Bureau right now. But what's the matter?" Sung Joon inquired.
"It's something related to the dungeons. The second party that went in to rescue the first hasn't come out for a week. That's why we need a Hunter who can investigate and clear the dungeon!"
"Isn't it commonplace for a party not to return from a dungeon? I don't think you should be so hasty."
It was just a minor issue in his opinion. That's why he couldn't understand why Hyun Sung was being so impatient.
"The phone isn't secure so I can't tell you everything, but I can tell you one thing… the situation is a lot more serious than you think."
"What exactly is happening?"
"It's a completely new type of dungeon that hasn't appeared before. If you help us, you won't be rewarded by the Bureau, but by the nation," promised Hyun Sung.
After listening to Hyun Sung, Sung Joon understood the severity of the situation.
If the country would reward him for his efforts, that meant that the issue was large enough for the government to keep an eye on.
In general, most of the issues regarding the dungeons were handled by the two Bureaus (the Dungeon Bureau and the Hunter Bureau). The government intervening or handing out a reward was rare.
"Are you certain that there will be a reward?" Sung Joon asked.
If there was a reward, he wouldn't have a reason not to help them.
"Since it's a really serious situation, there'll be an equally large reward to compensate you. Let's talk about it in further detail at the Bureau."
It seemed that he was busy since Hyun Sung didn't want the call to drag on for very long. As he had heard the urgency in his voice, Sung Joon gladly ended the call.
Sung Joon sold the magic stones that he had gotten from his B-rank solo run at the Dungeon Bureau, procuring $400,000. He had some trouble with the dungeon since he had soloed it, but since he didn't have to split his share, naturally, he smiled.
"Mr. Kang Sung Joon?"
An glasses-wearing woman approached him. She wore a nametag around her neck which indicated that she was a Hunter Bureau worker.
Sung Joon asked, "Did the Team Leader send you?"
"Yes, allow me to guide you to the conference room," she replied.
The woman and Sung Joon arrived on the floor with the conference rooms. Eventually, Hyun Sung came out of one of the conference rooms with a grave expression, and the woman that guided Sung Joon left with his consent.
"Mr. Kang Sung Joon!"
As soon as Hyun Sung discovered Sung Joon, he ran towards him.
"Please, let's go inside. I'll explain everything to you," he said.
There was one worker inside the conference room. It was a face he'd seen a few times when he'd gone to Hyun Sung's office.
Sung Joon and Hyun Sung went into the conference room, and the worker bowed their head and left.
Sung Joon sat in an unoccupied chair and began.
"Please explain the situation to me. You said it was a new type of dungeon… What are you talking about?" he asked.
"It's just as I said. It's a dungeon that has completely different features compared to the other pre-existing dungeons. The Dungeon Bureau hadn't properly grasped the situation, so they proceeded with the matching and a party of five rank Hunters entered the dungeon. However, they haven't returned yet."
"What's the difficulty level?"
"The Dungeon Bureau has designated it as an rank dungeon, but we might have to adjust the rating up."
"Are you saying it's at least rank? It's commonplace for a party of Hunters that are the same rank as the dungeon to be annihilated."
The dungeons were always accompanied by a certain level of danger. Even if they weren't faced with an Elite Dungeon, it was commonplace for Hunters who challenged a dungeon that shared ranks with them to not return. (*e.g. rank Hunters often die in rank dungeons, B-rank Hunters often die in B-rank dungeons, etc. The author mentioned before that most Hunters don't challenge dungeons of the same rank. Instead, B-rank Hunters will usually go through C-rank dungeons, etc.)
"We've sent our own regular assault team, 'Spear', into the dungeon, but they didn't come out, just like the first party."
"Isn't an S-rank Hunter part of the 'Spear'? But you're saying that he didn't return from an rank dungeon?" Sung Joon asked.
