The 100th Regression of the Max-Level Player - RMLP Chapter 62: Deathmatch Results (Part 2)
In the blink of an eye, all eight representatives turned into lifeless corpses.
A hushed silence fell over the spectators.
No exceptions, whether angels or humans.
The result was disheartening, yet not entirely unexpected.
After all, the level disparity in this match was insurmountable.
“But to have it end so anticlimactically…”
The angels didn’t voice their thoughts, but their puzzled expressions spoke volumes.
[Black Scythe won?]
[So, we have to treat Olivier, the assigned angel to Black Scythe, like a king for a while?]
Priscilla’s face contorted into a malicious scowl.
[You knew it would end like this, didn’t you?]
[Yes, I did.]
[Of course! You tricked us all with this proposal, knowing you’d win!]
[I suggested a game that would favor me, obviously. Why else would I propose it?]
Oliver’s confident response left Priscilla momentarily speechless.
[And did I threaten any of you into making a bet with me? No, I didn’t. You all agreed to the wager, claiming it’d be fun. But now you want to say otherwise?]
Priscilla’s rage was evident as her under-eye area trembled visibly.
[What’s making you so upset? Or is it involuntary? Maybe you should take some supplements; they say eye twitching in the human realm is caused by a lack of magnesium.]
[What? Are you going to fight me?]
Priscilla was about to rush forward but hesitated at Olivier’s words.
[Go ahead if you’re so confident. Do you really want the angels to lose their dignity in front of the humans? You’ll end up in a containment pouch, and even the Archangel won’t save you.]
The mention of a containment pouch brought Priscilla back to her senses.
A containment pouch was a degrading punishment where insects were confined to a cramped space of about 0.5 square meters. It was a humiliating penalty for dignified angels.
[I hate containment pouches… I really do!]
Just the thought of it made her shudder, and Priscilla reluctantly stepped back, quelling her anger.
[What now? Not up for the challenge?]
[Well thought. You should be thanking me instead. If I hadn’t warned you, you’d have had a 100% chance of ending up in a containment pouch.]
[T-Thanking you, for what? That’s ridiculous!]
Although she shouted in frustration, Olivier’s words were true.
Unbelievably, Priscilla felt a sense of gratitude toward her.
[Anyway, as per our bet, I’m the king now, right?]
[Priscilla, you’ll handle the orientation for the Unified Area for a while.]
[F-For how long…?]
[Until I feel better.]
[What are you waiting for? Aren’t you eager to get started?]
An expression of injustice flashed across Priscilla’s face.
She looked around at the other angels, seeking their help, but they all turned away.
[Sigh… Why did I agree to this bet?]
Reluctantly, Priscilla flew above the players’ heads.
A bet was a bet, after all.
[Ahem, players. As you can see, we have a new Unified Area Representative.]
As Priscilla flapped her wings, a message appeared in front of the players.
[Player ‘Black Scythe’ has become the new Unified Area Representative (C-ESKS007).]
Ryu Min, unfazed by the expected outcome, pretended to be nonchalant and merely checked his skill window.
[Temporary Skill – Domination]
-Effect: This skill allows the player to issue compelling commands and take control of others.
The affected player cannot resist these commands under any circumstances.
It can be used up to 10 times, and once all opportunities are exhausted, the skill disappears.
Only one command can be given to each player.
However, please note that this skill will not work on players with a higher level than the user.
The sole difference between Domination and Command Authority lies in one key aspect:
The former can be employed whether the targeted player has a job or not.
Ryu Min pondered, “While there is now a level restriction, it remains an extraordinary privilege. With higher levels, anyone can be dominated.”
In other words, with his level 30 prowess, Ryu Min could potentially compel anyone to obey his will.
Could the representative hesitance at first be because they understood this fact? Fearful of showing any hostility that might render them vulnerable to the Domination skill?
[Now that the verdict is reached, I shall resurrect the other fallen players.]
A radiant light erupted within the arena, miraculously bringing back to life the eight players who had previously lost their heads.
“How is this possible?”
“I vividly remember having my head severed…”
[You all perished at the hands of Black Scythe. Thus, the new Unified Area Representative is Black Scythe.]
“Is this how it ended then?”
To some extent, they had anticipated their inability to defeat Black Scythe, as they were merely forced into the battle, struggling against the angels’ punishment.
[With a new Unified Area Representative appointed, the representative authority of the resurrected players will be withdrawn. Do not be disheartened, though. Opportunities to reclaim the representative position will always exist,] Priscilla assured them.
Yet, despite the mention of another chance, the players did not appear pleased.
After all, their opponent was none other than Black Scythe.
It felt like attempting to conquer an impregnable fortress.
[Now that the extra game has concluded, let us proceed to the main quest,] Priscilla announced, her wings flickering with grace.
As she did so, the quest window materialized before them, beckoning them into the next chapter of their journey.
◀ ROUND 5 ▶
└ Defeat 300 Orcs per person within 10 hours.
└ Collect 4 Balance Stones.
└ Reward upon success ▶ ????
└ Participants: 77,310,228
└ Achievers: 0/19,327,557
[Current Area C-ESKS007]
└ Participants: 4,844
└ Achievers: 0/1,211
The players scrutinizing the quest window were taken aback.
“What? Defeat 300 Orcs?”
“And why are there so few achievers?”
“Looks like it’s just a quarter of the participants.”
Priscilla’s patience wore thin with the players’ complaints.
[Why so ungrateful? Is it the low achiever count? Should I make it even lower?]
The players remained silent, heads lowered.
[You’ve had easy rounds so far, but this time, we’ve made it more challenging with fewer achievers. But don’t get discouraged…]
“But is defeating 300 Orcs really that difficult?”
“Aren’t Orcs just cannon fodder in games?”
Priscilla felt irked by their ignorant comments.
[Hmm, you’ll realize how tough it is once you experience it. I won’t say more.]
“Angel! What about the Sub Quests?”
“Why is the reward marked with a question mark?”
In response to some inquiries, Priscilla replied matter-of-factly.
[For this round, unlike before, the Sub Quests are publicly revealed. As for the reward, it’s a secret.]
Though she called it a secret, Ryu Min knew what it was—the Balance Rune is the reward for completing the Sub Quest.
‘The Balance Rune must be obtained in this round by completing the Sub Quest.’
He was determined to claim one of the 18 essential runes listed for the Sub Quest’s reward this time.
‘But only one person can get the Sub Quest reward.’
