They had to go.
If only one of the girls of the territory that was mentioned before, Lana Lovely, was kidnapped, Kang Chul-In would not go himself.
Though it was harsh, it wasn’t right for a Lord to risk his life to save the life of just one girl. But if it involved the lives of many kidnapped children, then it would matter, as it would involve the risk of losing the trust of the citizens.
And not only this, the quest offered +3000 exp, +2 Levels, 1 ticket of territory enrichment, and most importantly, the Epic Item: the Needle of the Empress.
Finally, this was also linked to the talking tree sap problem. There was no choice but for Kang Chul-In to start the expedition.
The next morning, Kang Chul-In, along with Dorian, Lucia, Nilus, and James rode on a horse, and headed towards the Talking Tree forest, under the watchful and hopeful gazes of the citizens.
