Otto joined Lord Lota’s army shortly before the attack on Nazrak’s home base.
“Greetings, my lord.”
Camille bowed to Otto, kneeling on one knee in the manner of a knight to his lord.
It was to show the soldiers of the Lota Estate that Camille was still loyal to Otto.
Otto helped Camille to his feet.
“It must be true.”
“I can’t believe that lowly b**tard risked his life to get this information out ….”
“The sun will rise in the west tomorrow.”
The soldiers of the Lota Estate were greatly astonished at the sight.
Otto’s behavior was so different from the lord they knew.
Meanwhile, Otto’s insides were burning.
His legs trembled.
Thump, thump, thump!
His heart felt like it might burst at any moment.
Kim Do-jin was just a simple man who was an avid player of the game ‘Territory Wars’.
He had never actually fought in a war, so it was only natural for him to panic.
‘Keep it together,’
Despite his fears, he went into battle out of a sense of duty.
At the moment, the soldiers of the Lota Estate had very little loyalty to Otto.
They didn’t trust him.
However, it would be a different story if they were to join the battle and fight together.
When a lord goes into battle and risks his life to fight alongside his soldiers, loyalty and trust are greatly increased.
For that reason, Otto mustered up the courage to go into battle himself.
“Are you okay?”
Camille whispered to Otto.
“This is your first time in combat.”
“No, I’m fine.”
“Your voice is shaking.”
“Is that so? Haha… hahahaha….”
“If you’re really nervous, you can just command from the back.
A lord doesn’t have to fight himself, just being on the battlefield is enough….”
“But my father fought alongside the soldiers.”
“That’s true, but….”
“I need to be seen fighting myself.
That’s how they’ll trust me in the future.”
With that, Otto drew a sword he had never held in his life.
He raised it high in the air and shouted at the top of his lungs.
None of the soldiers answered Otto’s call.
They were all staring at him, unsure of how to react when he did something they weren’t used to.
“You guys! Answer me! Lota!!!”
One of the knights shouted back.
The voices of the soldiers followed, echoing high into the sky.
“All troops, charge! Slay the evil undead!”
With that, Otto shouted, charging ahead of anyone else toward the Nazrak stronghold.
Problem is, I got a little too caught up in my own motivation.
Otto, while running alone, tripped up by a rock and fell into an awkward situation.
The soldiers of Lota were speechless at the sight of Otto.
“…All troops, charge.”
Camille said with his eyes tightly closed.
Behind him, the soldiers of the Lota Estate shouted and began to charge towards Nazrak’s home base.
It was a rough start, but that’s how the battle began.
And meanwhile Otto….
“Arghhh, don’t step on me! Eek, I said, stop stepping on me you guys!”
I had to roll around this way and that to avoid being trampled to death by my allies.
The perfect raid.
Since Nazrak’s main army was fighting the Orth Estates, there weren’t many undead monsters defending the Sanctuary.
So the battle was won in favor of the Lota Estate.
But the battle wasn’t easy.
“Sa, help! Ew! Yeo, look here!”
Screams erupted from all sides, and soldiers were dying.
‘This… this is real war.’
Witnessing the horrors of war firsthand, Otto froze.
He could hardly move as he watched the men’s arms and legs being torn off and their heads blown off in front of him.
It was inevitable.
I had no combat experience, and my character’s specs were too low.
In fact, it was no exaggeration to say that just standing on the battlefield was a feat.
But the enemy is not forgiving.
A skeleton soldier charged towards Otto.
Camille shouted, slicing the skeleton soldier’s waist in two as it charged towards Otto.
“Stay alert, you’ll die if you let your guard down, you have to get through this!”
“Didn’t your father teach you swordsmanship? Remember it, your body will remember it!”
Otto gritted his teeth.
‘This is not the world I grew up in.
This is a world where people die every day, where there are bloody wars every day, and if I can’t keep my head straight in a small battle like this… I won’t survive.’
I steeled myself.
I tightened my grip on the sword.
Another skeleton soldier charged at Otto.
Otto swung his sword as hard as he could at the charging skeleton.
With a dull thud, the skeleton soldier’s spine snapped in half.
Otto was satisfied that he had done it.
His confidence was boosted by the knowledge that he could at least take down one of the charging skeletons.
‘Yes, I can do it!’
His fear washed away and he began to notice his surroundings.
‘I can defeat a skeleton soldier!’
Otto exclaimed, targeting a nearby skeleton soldier and slashing at its back.
The character’s hit rate was so low that the attack was missed.
Otto was stunned.
The skeleton soldier turned It’s head around and glared at Otto.
Goosebumps broke out all over his body as their eyes met.
Eek! The skeleton soldier’s halberd flew right under Otto’s nose.
Otto instinctively raised his sword to block the blow, but he was helpless against the Skeleton Soldier’s next attack.
He was knocked to the ground and his sword broke.
Otto, who has gone from bad to worse.
A familiar voice spoke from the skeleton soldier’s mouth.
Nazrak’s spirit had possessed the skeleton soldier and spoke to Otto.
– How dare you betray me… and lead an army into this sanctuary…?
– Even if I perish here… I will kill you!
Otto realised that he was really in trouble.
At the same time, all the undead monsters in the vicinity turned their heads to glare at Otto alone.
[Notification: Warning, warning!]
[Notification: Nazrak has eyes on you!]
[Notification: Nazrak’s minions have eyes only for you!]
[Notification: They will not stop until you are dead!]
Every undead monster in the sanctuary began to swarm towards Otto.
And Otto was….
“Help, help, help!!!”
He ran for his life.
* * *
– My subjects! He must be killed! Kill him! You must!
Hundreds of undead monsters rushed towards Otto in unison.
Otto ran and ran, dodging attacks from all directions.
“My lord is in danger!”
“Protect the lord, all of you!”
Then the soldiers of the Lota Estate stepped forward and began to fight the undead monsters that were charging at Otto.
Camille also joined the defense of Otto, killing the skeleton soldier that was targeting him.
Otto shouted at Camille.
“What do you mean?”
“There’s a portrait deep in the sanctuary! The soul of the Lord of the Undead is contained in that portrait! So go! Go and destroy the portrait!”
“I’ll survive somehow, don’t worry, Hurry! Go!”
The reason Otto was shouting like that was because extinguishing Nazrak’s soul was the only way to overcome this crisis.
If Nazrak was not defeated, the undead monsters would continue to regenerate.
Not to mention the fact that the reborn undead monsters would target Otto.
Defeating Nazrak was of the utmost importance, and it was up to Camille to do it.
Camille was the only one who could defeat the high-level undead monsters guarding Nazrak’s portrait.
“Your orders… I accept.
Please be safe.”
In the end, instead of protecting Otto, Camille decided to destroy Nazrak’s portrait deep within the sanctuary.
A quest window popped up.
[Notification: A quest has occurred!]
The content was as follows
[Survive! Otto de Scuderia!]
Description: Survive until Camille destroys Nazrak’s portrait.
Type : Time Attack Quest
Progress : 0% (0/1)
Reward: Orb of Destruction
Time Limit: 600 seconds
‘All I have to do now is hang on.
Then it’s over.’
Otto gritted his teeth and ran.
This quest was something he’d encountered countless times in the course of his playthrough of the game.
There was no need to panic.
‘Let’s just do what I’ve always done.’
Remembering his experience, Otto used the terrain to make a quick escape.
And his move proved to be a great help to Lota forces.
“Don’t you dare! We’ll protect the lord!”
Otto’s use of the terrain to escape made it much easier for Lota’s soldiers to keep the undead monsters at bay.
Moreover, since the aggro was only attracted to Otto, the Lota soldiers didn’t suffer any damage.
It was as if the tank was drawing aggro and the dealers were killing monsters in the meantime.
The problem was, Otto wasn’t a tank.
Otto ran with all his might, trying his best not to get hit, no matter what.
He ran, rolled, and dodged with all his might.
But there was only so much he could do.
Her body wouldn’t listen to him.
Otto was a heavy drinker and smoker, and hadn’t exercised in years.
His poor physical condition made it difficult for him to run away.
“No, no more… *Pant* *Pant*… Ugh!”
Barely holding back the rising tide of vomit, I took off running.
– Where are you running!
Just then, Nazrak, this time possessed by the Skeleton Knight, blocked Otto’s path.
– I’ll kill you… only you….
“W-wait? let’s talk and settle this amicably….”
– Die, you despicable b**tard!
Just then, two knights and three soldiers from the Lota Estate appeared and confronted Nazrak.
– F**k off!
Unfortunately, they were no match for Nazrak.
The Skeleton Knight was more powerful than the average skeleton soldier, and with Nazrak possessing it, its combat power was immense.
The knights and soldiers who had tried to protect Otto fell.
– There is no one to protect you now.
You despicable b**tard… for a traitor like you… there is only retribution!
Otto screamed, rolling over and over between Nazrak’s crotche.
Then he crawled through the rubble of the collapsed ramparts.
– You little rat.
You’re nothing but a rat on the run now.
Nazrak stabbed his sword through the rubble.
The next moment.
A gasping eacaped from Otto’s mouth.
The tip of the sword was in front of his face.
Nazrak’s blade had stopped a centimeter from his nose.
