＃When I returned, my family was ruined (43)
“A book praising the Yongin people?”
Ethan asked right away.
Of course, even in past lives, there were humans who were overwhelmed by the power of a powerful species called the Dragon Race.
However, these people were very few and their activities were very passive.
The moment you go somewhere and talk about the dragon race, all kinds of food waste will pour out, and there will be people all over the place who will stand up with clubs.
A book praising the Yongin people?
As soon as it was discovered, it was classified as heresy, and it would not be strange for it to be burned on the side of the road.
From Ethan’s perspective, it certainly was.
“Would you like to take a look?”
Sylvia handed me a book.
Ethan laughed when he saw the title of [Braq God Book] .
I never thought a book like this would appear.
It was just like a children’s book, with simple letters along with pictures arranged so that even ordinary people who were not good at writing could easily understand.
The bookshelves kept turning over.
Ethan’s eyes lit up as he looked at the contents.
is the essence of the breathing method.
It is also a breathing technique that focuses on collecting mana in the heart.
Although several techniques were mixed together like a stew, this was clearly the main breathing method of the Yongin tribe.
He is merciful and gives strength to all people. Memorize the phrase again and again. You too will have the dragon god’s protection.
It was also a breathing method at a much lower level than the training method seen by warlocks.
‘You may be able to build up your strength quickly enough to reach the level of a 4-star knight.’
That was the limit.
Moreover, in Ethan’s opinion, there was one big problem with this method.
‘It’s an unstable breathing method.’
Because it was a very crude method that would put a lot of strain on the heart during the training process.
Among those who practice this breathing method, very few will survive past the age of forty.
‘This is how they expanded their religious affiliation.’
It’s about giving power.
There is no phrase as fascinating as that. Ethan stared at the book.
It was not at the level of writing letters one by one.
‘It’s an elaborate print.’
In order to print a book, various preparations were required. Ethan closed the book and looked at his book.
“What do you think about the dragon people? “You don’t have to worry about me, so just say whatever comes to mind.”
“I think it’s a monster that invaded our Kingdom of Heidern.”
“Do other people usually think that way too?”
“At least most people in the Duchy of Ardan think so. “There are probably stories you’ve heard since you were young.”
Although it is said that instead of pushing humanity to the brink of extinction like in the past life, the dragon people signed a non-aggression pact in the middle.
It was natural for the average person to hate the Yongin tribe.
Why would they like a monster that invades their territory?
Praising the Yongin people was definitely not something a normal person would do.
This was even more so in the current situation where the monsters were pushed out by the duke and could not show their overwhelming power.
“Where did you get this book?”
“This is a book from Ziphron’s personal library.”
“Is he a guy who praises the dragon race?”
“It didn’t seem like it. “When they mentioned it to me, they added the words ‘crazy cultists.’”
“yes. Zipron called them the ‘Cult of Naraxus.’ At first glance, it seemed like he didn’t have good feelings. “I think you probably got this book for research.”
“Did you find out where you got the book?”
“yes. This is one of the tops in the Barony of Lomenton. “I heard there’s a place called Mimiron Sangsang, and they’re distributing this book.”
“That’s not it. Because it is expressed as ‘knowing knowing’. However, it is said that the quantity released so far is quite large. Zipron guessed that there might be a printing shop nearby.”
‘It’s the top.’
I felt like I needed to find out more about whether this book was produced directly by the merchant or whether it was simply imported.
‘Anyway, if it’s the Naraxus Church.’
Ethan knew what the word ‘Naraxxus’ meant.
The commander of six legions that follow the dragonlord.
The name of one of those corps commanders was Naraxus.
Ethan also remembered its race and nickname.
‘Shapeshifter Dragon of Deception.’
The Yongin people were not a single race made up of only one race.
Even though they were of the same dragon race, they all had different appearances and characteristics.
For example, dragons called ‘shape changers’ were able to change their appearance in many ways.
Plants, beasts and, in a larger sense, humans and other races. There were many different forms they could change into.
‘They were such bastards.’
The lowest or lowest level shape shifters were not very picky.
This is because although low-level ones can change their appearance to look like humans, they cannot even change the shape of their heart, called the Dragon Heart.
Normally, you could immediately feel something strange just by encountering those with 5-star or higher skills.
‘The duration of transformation is generally short.’
Also, even if you transform, you cannot completely erase the habits of the dragon race, so your identity would be discovered by people around you within a week at the most.
Intermediate and above shapeshifters were different. From then on, whenever I changed my appearance, I was able to imitate not only the appearance, but also the individual’s personality, habits, attitude, and lifestyle.
The acting skills are so amazing that it’s not easy to feel strange unless you’ve been with someone for a long time.
Besides, from this time on.
Even the dragon heart, the only distinguishable part, was able to be shaped so that it looked similar to a human.
‘This is when things really get serious.’
Intermediate level is about 7 stars.
The upper level is 8 stars.
The highest level is 9 stars.
In order to figure out their strangeness, you needed roughly the same level of skill as an engineer. However, the 7-star knight was not so common that it was rolled around on the streets.
Even though it was an earldom, it was difficult to have more than one or two of them because they were powerful people. So, from this point on, it was possible to imitate the target and hide for a long time without being easily detected by people around him.
Since their power was not that great for a dragon, they could easily be killed if their identity was discovered.
If one were to pick the most difficult race among the dragon race, they could be said to be the most troublesome ones, with the shape changer being the first choice.
For Ethan alone, the number of shape-shifters who had their heads cut off in his past life exceeded thousands.
Among these guys, if it’s the Legion Commander Naraxus who is at the top.
‘Even if he changes his appearance into the king of a country, it won’t be easy to recognize him.’
In a past life, wizards had created a special tracking item called ‘Chujonghyang’ to kill this guy.
It was very difficult for even a transcendental to see through Naraxus’ disguise, so it was an item created to identify him by smell instead of sight.
It was time to somehow smear the bastard’s body with scent and then track him down. It was only after tracking him for a full year that he was able to cut off the head of the dragon of deception.
‘I can’t believe his name appears once again.’
At first glance, it was not pleasant news.
“Has Ziphron not responded in any way to the church?”
“From what I heard, there is an atmosphere in which the nobles tacitly allow the religious order.”
“Are you turning a blind eye to these crazy cults?”
It was precisely because of this fact.
“yes. The west, where the duchy is located, does not have good feelings about them, but other regions say it is a little different.”
“In what way?”
“The Cult of Naraxus is one of the cults that emerged fifteen years ago. “I heard that in the early days, the residents of the territory reported to the nobles.”
“yes. However, as the nobles are not moving properly and the number of cases where reporters are being harmed without even realizing it is increasing, a trend has emerged of turning a blind eye to these people even after encountering them.”
Sylvia took a moment to catch her breath and continued speaking.
“It is said that the Naraxus Church is thriving in some regions, perhaps due to missionary activities that have been going on for quite some time. Even after seeing this, the nobles are quietly turning a blind eye.”
I could almost understand why Zipron treated the Naraxus Church as a cult but left it alone.
Most of the nobles act like that, so it would be laughable to go on a rampage to subdue the religious order alone.
“Do you know the location of the church?”
“It is said that in the western part of the kingdom, unlike other regions, the church operates very secretly. Maybe that’s why even Zipron didn’t know the location of the church.”
The family that occupies the largest territory in the west is the Duke of Ardan.
Since it is a territory that blocks the Yongin tribe, it will be much more difficult for the religious order to thrive than in other regions.
If you openly engage in missionary work here, you will have nothing to say even if you are burned at the stake.
Ethan, remembering the church, clenched his fist. The duchy is the land that our ancestors sacrificed their lives to protect.
Dirty people are setting foot in such a land!
Although it is now at the level where awareness is spreading due to strong opposition from the residents of the territory, it is obvious what will happen if left alone. Perhaps, like other regions of the kingdom, cults that serve the dragon race will become prevalent.
This was a clear fact just by looking at the breathing techniques these guys gave me.
‘I guess I’ll have to deal with it.’
A known merchant who distributed the Dragon Tribe God Book. If you go there, you will be able to get a clue about the church.
‘It means making a book with printed materials.’
It would mean that there is a place that has established its own power.
If it was in this area, we planned to proceed with the subjugation without hesitation.
First of all, there was something I had to do first.
“Where is the ring?”
“Here we go.”
Sylvia came to Ethan’s side and knelt down. That was the moment she pressed something under the desk.
A drawer popped out with the sound of a lock being released.
An antique box inside. Inside the box was a lump of black liquid that I had seen before.
‘It was here.’
Ethan, who saw the second pill, put his hand into the liquid.
A huge amount of fiery mana entered the liquid. The black liquid was absorbed into the body in an instant.
Ethan’s mana began to fill up through the pills that spread throughout his body.
My body became much heavier than when I had one pill.
After taking the elixir, it was difficult to see the effect of increasing the weight with just one pill, but it turned out to be a good thing.
Energy was injected into the two pills to the point where they swelled.
In situations where you need to explode your power, you can now draw up to twice as much energy.
There was a saying that if you wanted to survive for a long time, you had to hide three-tenths of your strength.
But Ethan’s hidden power.
If you consider the amount of energy that increased the moment you used the liberation function and the body that became lighter, it was close to 70%.
The reason why past dukes were able to exude endless energy.
It was because of the eight pills.
‘Preparations are over.’
Now it was time to visit the merchant who distributed the Dragon Clan God Book.
Ethan raised the book and asked with a faint smile.
“The people who distributed this book. Where exactly are they located?”
