Seeing James’s dumbfounded expression…
The adventurer sighed and said, “You look like a new adventurer!”
“Let me explain it to you!”
“Why would Mr. Garsley, the richest man in Saint Laurent, offer 30 Gold Coins to recruit adventurers?”
“He must be coveting the resources from the Turgar Demon Dragon!”
“What is the Turgar Demon Dragon?” James asked.
He knew that Garsley was the richest man in Saint Laurent, and that no one else could afford such a large commission.
“You don’t even know the Turgar Demon Dragon. I really don’t know what to say about you!”
“Listen up, kid!”
“The Turgar Demon Dragon is a subspecies of the famous Sicilian Dragon Race. It’s a Demon Dragon with a strength of Level 5 Gold expert!”
“The mountain range it occupies is called the Turgar Mountain Range because of it!”
“The reason why Garsley wants to recruit Silver adventurers like you is because the Turgar Demon Dragon has a skill called ‘Calamity Stars’. The more people there are, the less powerful this skill will be.”
“In other words, all of you were roped over by him just to make up the numbers!”
“However, the Turgar Demon Dragon is a Level 5 Gold creature. I don’t know if a Silver-rank adventurer will be able to withstand this skill, but as a Gold-rank expert, Garsley will definitely be able to!”
“When this mission appeared, almost all the Level 2 Silver adventurers in Saint Laurent went. They also knew about this, but they were confident in their own strength!”
“Now you know that even Level 3 Silver adventurers don’t dare to think of going. You’re just a Level 5 Silver adventurer, so forget it!”
After listening to the adventurer’s explanation, James realized that there was something else remarkable about this seemingly complicated recruitment mission.
“Thank you for your information, I understand!”
After thanking him, James turned and walked towards the mission reception desk in the Adventurer’s Hall.
Seeing his figure and his gaze, the adventurer who had just given his explanation knew that James would not want to give up and would definitely take on the mission.
Looking at James’s figure, that adventurer shook his head silently and sighed.
“There’s an adventurer who can’t see the situation clearly. He’s only a Level 5 Silver adventurer, but he’s actually accepting such a mission. He’s really courting death!”
With that, he sighed and left while shaking his head.
Meanwhile, James came to the front desk and said to the maid who was in charge of serving the adventurers, “Hello, I want to accept Mr. Garsley’s mission to hunt the Turgur Demon Dragon!”
Hearing this, the maid’s smile didn’t change. However, she did not immediately handle the processes for him either.
Instead, she said to James, “Sir, are you sure? This is a rather dangerous mission. Although Mr. Garsley said that any adventurer above the Level 5 Silver rank can go…”
“… those who dare to accept this mission are mostly Level 2 Silver adventurers and above.”
The receptionist was very tactful.
However, she expressed what she meant clearly. As a Level 5 Silver adventurer, he wasn’t worthy of accepting this mission.
Naturally, James could hear her unspoken words. However, he wasn’t angry. Instead, he emphasised himself once again.
“Please, please help me settle this. Thank you!”
Seeing his insistence, the maid’s face stiffened.
She had also served an ignorant adventurer like him this morning.
However, most had given up after hearing her advice. James was the second adventurer to insist on accepting this mission.
Since he was determined to die, there was no other way.
The maid thought regretfully.
She had persuaded him simply out of her good intentions. However, if he did not listen, even if he died during this mission, she would have a clear conscience.
James left the Adventurers Guild after completing the procedures.
When he returned home, he informed Elise that this mission might take a longer time.
Then, he headed towards Garsley’s manor.
That was the gathering point for this mission.
Since it was a team mission, Garsley naturally would not let the adventurers go one by one. Instead, they would gather at Garsley’s manor first. Then, they would head to the Turgar Mountain Range together to hunt down the Turgar Demon Dragon!
Ten minutes later.
James arrived at a sprawling estate. In the fenced yard at the far end of the estate…
He saw many people gathered there.
With just a cursory glance, he could feel that everyone in the courtyard had the strength of a Level 1 or 2 Silver expert.
“Indeed, none of them are weak!”
“It seems that the person in the Adventurer’s Guild didn’t scare me!”
However, even if that adventurer did not scare him, he was not afraid at all.
After all, he was not some Level 5 Silver rank adventurer. Instead, his true strength was at the Gold rank.
In fact, he even guessed that…
He might be able to defeat the Turgar Demon Dragon alone if it was only a Level 5 Gold creature.
At that moment, the Level 5 Gold Demon Dragon would be solely his.
A Level 5 Gold Demon Dragon had many body parts that could be sold for a high price!
Even the dragon’s saliva was a great aphrodisiac, let alone other parts of its body.
All in all, the Turgar Demon Dragon was full of treasures.
Its total value was definitely no less than 100 Gold Coins.
Furthermore, the cost of this mission was only 30 Gold Coins.
This would mean a profit of almost 300%.
No investor would let go of this business.
A 300% return would make all the merchants go crazy.
He had not known about the Turgar Demon Dragon previously. Otherwise, James would have definitely gone to fight the Demon Dragon alone.
He would never give this great money-making opportunity to Saint Laurent’s richest man.
These businessmen all had dirty hearts!
However, now that he was one step slower, he could only follow behind the others and take the remaining benefits.
Garsley looked at the 29 Silver-rank adventurers in his manor and furrowed his eyebrows tightly.
Naturally, there was a reason why he recruited 30 people.
His goal was to block the Turgar Demon Dragon’s signature skill. However, there were only 29 people now.
If that was the case, he might have to bear more responsibility.
However, if he were to be injured, there might be an accident during the battle against the Turgar Demon Dragon.
After all, he had just broken through to Level 5 Gold rank!
Previously, he had thought about facing the Turgar Demon Dragon. However, at that time, his strength was only at the Level 6 Gold rank. Thus, he was no match for the Turgar Demon Dragon.
But now, he had reached Level 5 Gold rank, which was the same rank as the Turgar Demon Dragon.
Naturally, he wanted to face the Turgar Demon Dragon. Thus, he had issued this recruitment mission.
However, he was still wary of the Turgar Demon Dragon’s skill, Calamity Stars.
Without 30 experts at Level 2 Silver and above, he did not dare to go.
Just as he was frowning, he saw a person walking over from the distance. Looking at the badge, he seemed to be a Level 5 Silver adventurer.
He was overjoyed and shouted, “Sir, you must have come here after accepting this mission!”
