What kind of bullsh*t is this…!?

 

Kang Chul-In couldn’t believe the situation right now.

Although it was currently a C rank, he had earned a unit with the potential of an SS rank! And not only that, it was a named unit!

...This was more ridiculous than when he coincidentally met the person he assumed to be Kwak-Jung in Park Doo-Sik’s office. Not only that, he should have bad luck according to Dorian because of his status as the biggest villain in Pangaea.

“Your majesty…”

The Ark Mage Nilus walked before Kang Chul-In and kneeled.

Majesty? Am I an emperor now?

Though Kang Chul-In was used to people calling him “milord”, he wasn’t used to being called “your majesty”. This was even after he had become an Overlord.

According to Akan, the right-hand man of God, you needed to become the sole ruler of Pangaea and become emperor in order to be called “your majesty”. 

But this SS rank unit was calling Kang Chul-In your majesty. It was as if they had known each other before.

“Again… To meet you again… this servant is so happy. The tears are blocking my sight…”

Nilus spoke as if he wasn’t a twelve year old. He had started crying tears of joy too. 

“Your majesty… The leader of this old man forever! The only emperor in this entire continent!”

Although he definitely got an SS rank, it seemed like the one Kang Chul-In had received was a bit odd.

Although he looked like a smart boy, he talked like an old man. Not only that, he talked to Kang Chul-In as if they knew each other. Although he had the potential of an SS rank, it was odd.

“Something’s weird…”

“That’s also what I think.”

“Mr. Chul-In, are you actually an emperor?”

“As if.” Although he had been an Overlord, he had not been emperor.

“Nilus, was it?” Kang Chul-In said.

“I am no emperor.”

“No!” Nilus said back loudly and denied it.

“No matter what you say, your majesty is the one and only Emperor of Blood and Iron!”

“Stop saying that nonsense.”

“I am not speaking nonsense! Although you might not recognize me after reincarnating, this old man recognizes you perfectly well. Not only that, even your majesty’s face is exactly the same. How could I ever forget you?”

“...Is he broken or something?” 

Kang Chul-In thought that the mighty SS rank Nilus was junk. After all, he had been told that he was an emperor who had reincarnated, as well as some other nonsense.

“I don’t want to hear it. Stop calling me your majesty.”

“Not being able to call your majesty “your majesty”... Then, what does your majesty wish this one to call you?”

“My name is Kang Chul-In. Just call me ‘milord’.”

“Huu…”

 “How can a great man like you use such an insignificant title like Lord?”

“I’m saying this for the second time now. I am no emperor.”

“Your majesty definitely is. The 27th emperor of the Ancient Empire, ‘The Emperor of Blood and Iron’, Emperor Ulius Berlinetta Pawn Aurangjeb.

“Uli… what?”

“Ulius, Emperor Ulius Berlinetta Pawn Aurangjeb!”

“...I have no idea what you’re saying.”

“I can understand that you’re confused, your majesty. It’s obvious that you don’t have the memories of your past life after you reincarnated.”

Reincarnation? Pft.

Although he could believe that he had gone back in time using the Soul Backup, he truly couldn’t believe in reincarnation. 

He thought that life was only precious if you lived once, not tens or hundreds of times. He believed that if he went through the process of life and death over and over, there would be no point in life.

“I don’t believe you. And I don’t want to listen to your story. So don’t say anything about being reincarnated.”

“Yes, your majesty.”

“Also, stop calling me that.”

“Although this servant can carry out any kind of order or mission, that is the only exception. I cannot stop calling you your majesty.”

Kang Chul-In shook his head and looked away from Nilus. He thought he would have to listen to another weird story if he kept on talking with him. 

It doesn’t matter to me. 

It happened sometimes.

If it was a named unit and not a normal one, there was a chance that they had memories of their past. It was before they had fallen asleep and when the Pangaea continent was still bustling and prospering.

He somewhat understood it.

Nearly 97% of Pangaea’s items and relics were from thousands of years ago. Although it was impossible to know what occurred back then, humans and civilization were wiped out from the world a thousand years ago, and it had turned into the ownerless Pangaea that it was now.

Although this honestly didn’t make sense, almost nothing did. After all, the Great Summoning didn’t make sense in the first place.

Kang Chul-In and the other dimension travelers just knew that there was a big event a thousand years ago in the continent. The truth was known to only god and his right-hand man, Akan. 

It seems like his emperor looks similar to me then.

That was what Kang Chul-In figured out.

After sleeping for a long time, there was a chance of mistaking someone else for another. Especially for an SS rank unit, it wasn’t really unusual that he had some “special” behavior after reawakening.

“Your majesty.”

Nilus wiped his tears and looked at Kang Chul-In with his red, bloodshot eyes.

“Being able to serve your majesty is an honor, a great honor!” said Nilus, who kneeled down towards Kang Chul-In. 

“Huu…” Kang Chul-In let out a deep breath as if he was tired.

“Mr. Chul-In…?” Lee Chae-Rin spoke.

“I think this boy knows about the past of Pangaea?”

“No, he doesn’t.”

“Huh?”

“If you ask what happened and why he was sealed and asleep for so long, he wouldn’t know. That is the answer for every unit, no matter who they’re facing.”

“Is that so…?”

“It’s better if you don’t know about the pasts of your units.”

“Anyway… it seems like you have very good luck, Mr. Chul-In.”

“Good… luck?” Listening to the words of Lee Chae-Rin, Kang Chul-In’s face showed a startled expression.

“Of course. Didn’t you say that the Random Unit selection is absolutely rigged? 

“Well, yes, I did.”

“But you obtained an SS rank unit on your first try, so your luck must be very good.”

“Is that so?”

“Of course. My prediction was right.”

“......?”

“Kind people have good luck. Because Mr. Chul-In helped me in taking back authority, isn’t a sign of karma?”

That was true.

In Kang Chul-In’s mind, the memory of Dorian talking surfaced.

Santa Claus doesn’t give bad children presents. Picking an S rank unit is impossible unless you’re kind like me.

But Dorian’s argument that his luck was bad because he was a villain was proven to be wrong.

Lucky was an S-rank seeker unit, while Nilus was an SS rank. In the end, Kang Chul-In had won.

Although the argument that Dorian made on how the random unit selection could be beneficial was also proven to be true.

“Congratulations, Mr. Chul-In!”

Lee Chae-Rin congratulated him from the depths of her heart. Even though it wasn’t she who had picked the SS rank unit with 500 coins, she was truly happy for Kang Chul-In.

“... Then thank you.”

Since his territory had gone from having no magician to getting an SS rank one, he was truly lucky. 

Especially when Nilus reached his full potential and finally became SS rank, it would truly be a sight to see.

“Nilus.”

“Yes, you called, your majesty?”

“Although it may be temporary, I name you the magician of our Laputa territory.”

“It’s an honor, sir. This Nilus will truly use his full potential and use in order to help your majesty in his conquest.” 

“Conquest?”

“Yes. After all, your majesty is the reincarnation of my emperor, the former owner of this continent. Since you’ve reincarnated, the continent should rightfully belong to you.”

Somehow, they fit together. It seemed like the past emperor he served was like Kang Chul-In and strove to unite and conquer the continent.

“Good.”

Although he didn’t like being called your majesty, he agreed when Nilus had said they would rule the continent. After all, his final goal was to rule over all of the Overlords and take total control over the entirety of Pangaea.

“We’re finished here today then. Go rest.” Kang Chul-In persuaded her to rest. He knew how tiring today was to her.

“But…”

“Do you plan on letting the civilians see the best of you or you when you’re tired and about to fall asleep?”

“T-that is…”

“Fine then.” She finally nodded.

After Kang Chul-In said goodbye to Lee Chae-Rin, he helped Urad and the others get rid of the traitors.

We finished quickly. 

After taking care of the final dwarf, Kang Chul-In stared at the rising sun and sighed.

“Take the ones that truly deserve to be killed and hang their heads up on the walls tomorrow. As for the rest, put them in the dungeon. I will bring them back to Laputa.”

Kang Chul-In hurriedly accepted forty dwarf laborers.

“We didn’t know what to do with them anyway, but thankfully, that’s solved now.”

Ark Mage Nilus and forty dwarven laborers. To think that I would earn so many unexpected benefits…

As Kang Chul-In earned two unexpected profits, he was very satisfied. Who knew, maybe Lee Chae-Rin was his lucky charm?

Is it going to be war now?

We’ll solve it again quickly though. 

Kang Chul-In was very confident.

Why? Because he was planning on using the Magic Satellites against the enemy during this war!
