“This is bad!”
In Pandora's Manhattan HQ…
This was the place that was recently destroyed because of Ju-Heon’s Gungnir attack.
To be more specific, the Code of Hammurabi bomb(?) exploded and it received a carpet bombing.
Pandora’s restorers and aftermath clean-up crew were busy crying their eyes out while restoring the buildings.
But there was a building that was the only one to not be damaged at all.
That was the case.
This was Pandora’s top executives, the Executive Board's building.
There were rumors about how Arthur’s round table artifact was in there or even how people who are not invited will die if they go inside.
The only thing that was confirmed of the rumors was that this building was an impregnable tower.
This mighty tower wouldn’t go down from disasters, tomb appearances, and even chaos caused by artifacts, but…
The people inside seemed to have received a lot of damage right now.
"What did you just say?! Prometheus has been captured?!”
They couldn’t close their jaws after hearing the shocking news.
They had heard that Prometheus had gone inside the Great Prison, but……!
“Are you saying that a Supreme Leader-Grade artifact has been captured?!”
One woman laughed.
“Who else? It was Seo Ju-Heon.”
Everybody was freaking out.
‘Did she just say Seo Ju-Heon?!’
“Hold on, why is his name popping up right now?!”
“Who knows? He must have struck again.”
Merlin was pouting as the others gasped.
"Who told him to ignore my warnings and go into the Great Prison on his own?”
That was the case.
Her name was Eve Rockefeller. She was Pandora’s Director. She was also one of the important members of the Knights of the Round Table.
Most importantly, she was someone who was working with Prometheus to artificially create a Majesty.
“I knew he was shitty from the moment he looked down on me for being an artifact from a different cultural heritage. He should just die.”
“Merlin! It’s not the time to say things like that!”
“Seo Ju-Heon awakened the Majesty’s artifact and released Zeus!”
They were going crazy and frantic.
But they were not the ones who were going the craziest.
‘Fuck, this isn't the time for thiiiiiis! We need to hurry up and send people to the prison! Prometheus-nim's important spot might be ripped out at this rate!’
Who was this?
The one going the craziest was none other than Prometheus's eagle.
‘Damn it! Seo Ju-Heon, that crazy baaaaaaastaaaaaard!’
This eagle was originally one of Zeus’s eagles. However, it had slowly switched sides after its master was imprisoned.
But that was not important right now.
‘Aigoo, Seo Ju-Heon, that crazy son of a biiiitch! What the hell did he do to Zeus?!’
He had seen it. He had seen Zeus go down.
He also saw Ju-Heon laughing his ass off in response.
The eagle realized things would be really bad at that point.
‘He is a crazy bastard.’
The Executive Board continued to chat, probably not knowing about the eagle’s feelings.
“The major god-level artifacts are out. That’s going to be a headache.”
“People like us who have been working with Prometheus will be in danger.”
“Then should we use Un-known to create Zeus’s divine enemy artifact?”
“Why don’t we send the Knights of the Round Table to take care of Zeus?”
"As for Seo Ju-Heon, he shouldn't be much danger if he can't use Zeus.”
The eagle was extremely frustrated.
‘Fuck, no! Zeus isn't the problem!
That son of a bitch Seo Ju-Heon is the final boss!’
He was exactly right.
“Are you done with your bullshit now?”
The artifacts were in shock.
They were looking at their master, Zeus, who looked as if he had lost his mind.
Zeus was in serious pain. His pale face looked as if his soul was just about to leave his body.
The other artifacts approached him while shaking in fear.
[U, umm. Father…]
[A, are you okay………?!]
Ju-Heon responded instead of Zeus.
“Hmm. As expected of a major god.”
Ju-Heon was satisfied while looking at the suspicious artifact that fell to the ground.
[XXX that fell off of Zeus’s body (SS-Grade:Divine-Grade - Consumable Artifact)]
“I look forward to seeing what is born from this.”
The artifacts cried in anger as soon as he said that.
[Hey, you cruel son of a bitch!]
[How can you even call yourself a human!]
[Return that to my fatheeeeeeeeer!]
Ju-Heon just scoffed.
“Who told a major god like him to be completely petty and go against his word?”
[Damn it! But still! Do you know what that means to my father?!]
[Do you really think you’ll be okay after doing something like this?!]
[Fuck, this is artifact abuse! This is blasphemy!]
[You're definitely not going to heaven!]
Ju-Heon just laughed.
“I know, I'm going straight to hell. Don’t worry, I'm taking all of you with me.”
This son of a bitch!
Even Ju-Heon’s team members looked pale. The male team members were especially traumatized.
“Ah……jackpot. That must have hurt like hell.”
This was the first time they ever felt sorry for an artifact. The artifacts urgently checked on Zeus.
[Father! Are you alive?! Are you okay?!]
Zeus’s artifact responded with a look of nirvana on his face.
‘You don’t look okay at all!’
One of the artifacts couldn’t watch any longer and picked up a sword.
[You motherfucking bastard, I'll rip yours off too! You son of a bitch!]
It started viciously charging toward Ju-Heon.
“Get lost, you’re only a Grade 2.”
The handsome God of War was destroyed by Ju-Heon.
It didn’t stop there! Ju-Heon kicked Ares’s head with his Artifact Destruction channeled in his foot.
He couldn't use the skill at full power because his connection with the Crow was weaker, but it didn't matter.
It was plenty to deal with these weaklings who had been imprisoned for hundreds, no, thousands of years.
It didn’t matter that they were fancy and famous gods.
All of them were extremely malnourished and so rusty that just touching them might break them!
[Ugh, stop, stoooop. You motherfucking human! How dare you be so disrespectful to gods like us!]
“You have a point. It’s not respectful to beat gods up like I would beat up animals.”
Ju-Heon pulled out a sword.
“I’ll just turn you into a eunuch too, you bastard.”
[Ahhh! No, wait! Heeey!]
The other artifacts started screaming.
[Hey, fucking stop!]
[Are you planning on destroying our Greek culture! Are you planning on drying out our seeds?!]
Ju-Heon's eyes flashed.
“All of you will quietly and obediently fulfill the contract. Otherwise, I'm ripping all of your dicks off!”
‘Damn it, how can there be such a terrible human?! Fuck, a bastard like this has the Majesty's Key?!’
A bastard like this becoming the Majesty would be a sign of the end of the world.
The artifacts turned pale but Ju-Heon was quite satisfied.
‘Ares, Horai, Dionysus, Muse, Pan, Hestia, Hermes, Hades, Poseidon……’
These were all at least Divine-Grade artifacts! They were also from Greek mythology, which meant that they were quite famous in the world.
‘They're perfect to use for business.’
Famous artifacts were great for marketing.
Artifacts also received an extra buff based on how famous they were, so this was quite the gain.
Ju-Heon's eyes flashed as the artifacts just looked around without doing anything.
“Why is there no response?! Do you not want to contract with me?!”
[Aigoo! Okay! I got it!]
“What kind of tone is that for a damn slave?!”
[As you wish! Master!]
They whispered to each other despite answering that way.
[He’s still just a human.]
[Yeah, there’s no way a single human bastard will be able to contract with all of these Divine-Grade artifacts.]
[Let him try if he wants.]
Ju-Heon reached his hand out as if he was telling them to shut up.
The Majesty’s Key started flashing.
The artifacts gasped as a suspicious golden door appeared in the air.
They all knew about this door.
[Fuck, the Door of Slaves has opened!]
[He can even open that door?!]
That was the case.
The Majesty’s Key allows the user to open and close any tomb.
But it also came with extra benefits.
The King of the Artifacts was able to open seven special doors based on the vices.
For example, the Key of Avarice would open the Door of Wealth, the Key of Wrath would open the Door of Destruction, etc.
And the Key of Pride opens the Door of Slaves!
[Alright, you lowly Greek artifacts who are only extremely lustful. Submit and become our master’s slaves!]
Ramesses was the one to shout. He was the King of Pride who had numerous slaves work to leave his legacy behind in the past.
He was praising Ju-Heon as he opened the Door of Slaves.
The artifacts clutched their heads and started screaming.
[Fuck, it’s the power of the Majesty!]
[Seo Ju-Heon, you son of a bitch!]
The Door of Slaves was a special door that allowed the Majesty to rule over numerous artifacts.
The power of pride that even the gods desired allowed the majesty to make all artifacts submit to him.
Slaves burst out of the golden door and started grabbing the Greek artifacts.
Ramesses shouted as he watched.
[All those from your cultural heritage will only be able to eat grass while creating great monuments for Seo Ju-Heon-nim! First! Yes, let’s start with a pyramid!]
Ju-Heon frowned as if he didn’t like that.
“Hey, get lost. I'll get arrested if I make them create such a stone tomb in this era. They'll say it's labor exploitation. It’s also useless.”
"The thing that is most useful in the modern world is energy. It’s even better if it is clean and has no danger of running out. A lack of energy is always the problem.”
Zeus flinched as Ju-Heon slowly turned toward him.
‘T, this bastard…there’s no way, right?’
There was indeed a way.
“First, you are going to be a power plant.”
Fuck, I'd rather go back in the cell!
“You cruel bastard. How can you make him a power plant?!”
Julian was organizing artifacts as he looked toward Ju-Heon with disbelief.
“Were you planning on making me do that kind of work as well?!”
Julian did have Thunder God Indra’s artifact after all. He could also control it enough to use it to generate electricity.
“You were going to make me a power plant weren’t you!”
Ju-Heon snorted at him.
“Did you just figure that out?”
“I didn't do it because your artifact was useful for clearing tombs. It was too much of a waste to keep it locked up in a power plant.”
“But it’s not a waste to put Zeus in there?!”
“Who cares? He probably has a ton of leftover strength. I'm also thinking about expanding my business. The energy field is going to make me a ton of money.”
The rest of the team grabbed the back of their necks but decided it wouldn’t matter.
“Anyway, this should make it easier to get to the Crow, right?”
"Well that is one thing, but based on my count earlier, some of the Greek artifacts are missing.”
“I'm sure someone else has them or they are somewhere else in here.”
“Really? Then I should go get them too.”
Ju-Heon’s eyes flashed as he walked deeper into the tomb.
“U, umm, you didn’t forget about the Crow, right?”
Well, they would need to go deeper for the Crow anyway.
Around that same time…
Kwon Hyuk Soo received an unexpected message.
[Calling the Knights of the Round Table.]
He was out on the water after being ripped off by Zhen Cai Yuan and barely making it off Ju-Heon’s island.
This message from Pandora’s Executive Board was quite unexpected.
“Aigoo, they want us to go rescue Prometheus?”
The Knights of the Round Table were basically Pandora’s Executive Board; they were the people who got their powers from the artifacts of the round table.
Pandora's Executive Board had approximately 150 artifacts of the round table but there were 13 special spots.
King Arthur and the rest of the artifact users who could sit in these 13 spots were called the Knights of the Round Table.
They were all Monarchs or people who gave up on the Majesty position and were trying to create an artificial Majesty.
The Monarchs and monopolizers who plotted to kill Ju-Heon in the past were all Knights of the Round Table.
But Kwon Hyuk Soo was not happy to see this message gathering the knights.
‘Mm, they want to rescue Prometheus? They probably mean let’s save Prometheus and all of us work together to kill Ju-Heon.’
Kwon Hyuk Soo just ripped apart the summon.
‘It’s actually more beneficial for me if little Ju-Heon becomes the Majesty.’
‘And why the hell would I rescue Prometheus? It’s better to loot artifacts from there than to waste my time rescuing a stupid idiot.’
He laughed out loud as he started to sway the other Monarchs as well.
At the same time…
[It’s an emergencyyyyyyyyyyy! The Majesty is about to be revived!]
[Hey hey. A ton of the Greek artifacts were captured!]
The events that happened in the prison were soon spread throughout the world.
The rumor was that a human with the Majesty's Key was trying to collect the artifacts of different cultures.
Well, he really just needed to collect the major figure and the subordinate artifacts would naturally get caught as well.
That was probably the reason.
[W, we must protect the major gods!]
[He’s going to rip it! He’s going to rip my pride and joy off!]
Most importantly, they said the following.
[Anybody but that bastard Seo Ju-Heon!]
[Yes! Any other bastard is okay but not that bastard!]
The artifacts that did not have any associations whatsoever started to become scared of Ju-Heon.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
