Chapter 82. Entrance Exam (4)
Weekly Chapter (4/7)
When all the applicants were gathered, the number was close to one thousand people.
Then, ten examiners and thirty assistant teachers entered the entrance exam area.
The assistant teachers started to distribute a map to every applicant, right after the examiners lined up next to each other.
“I’m Gael, associate teacher in the Combat Department, the entrance exam is under my responsibility. I will tell you what the goals of this exam are, listen carefully!”
Flynn listened with his arms folded behind the applicants. His task was to prevent unauthorized people from entering the entrance exam area.
The map showed the geography of the Grace Range, so that the students would not leave the safe zone, because they might encounter demonic beasts.
“The goal is simple. All you have to do is place your hand on the magic slab at the summit of the Grace Range.”
Of course, it would not be an easy road.
“Planteras will block you to the end.”
The map showed a total of six routes to the summit, A to F.
The fastest routes to the summit were A and B. But the defense of the Planteras were strongest at these locations. So most would take the indirect routes from C to F.
“Your priority is to get to the summit as quickly as possible, we also encourage teamwork, so we will take cooperation into account.”
Flynn recalled that when he took the entrance exam, he teamed up with two applicants to make it to the summit. And they received additional points.
“And each applicant has an additional task based on your Department. It’s written on the back of the map, so don’t forget to look at it..”
The applicants looked at the opposite side of the map.
The additional tasks were these.
The Alchemy Department was to collect the medicinal herbs explicitly indicated. And if they brewed a special potion, they would get additional points.
The Sorcery Department was to create tools using the materials obtained at Grace Range, and deliver them to the examiners after the examination.
The Magic Department had no assignments, but they could get additional points for healing other applicants.
The Combat Department also had no task.
“In addition, there are also detailed rules on the back of the map. I have completed my explanation.”
This entrance exam was so interesting that Flynn wanted to participate.
Zion Isarell, Abel Barianne and Damien were the reason for this.
Most thought Zion would get first place.
But Flynn was different. Posted only on NovelUtopia.com
His hair still stood on end when he thought about the fight a month ago.
He grinned as he imagined a hidden monster among the applicants who could match Zion. He was curious about the havoc this guy would wreak.
He hoped it would be exciting.
The examiners collected the magic crystal balls that maintained the barrier.
“Now the entrance exam begins. I wish you all the best of luck.”
Immediately, the huge barrier blocking the front disappeared.
The ground began to shake.
At the foot of the Grace Range, there were about a thousand Planteras.
This was the first barrier.
The applicants began to run with determination.
When they met the Planteras, a massive battle that looked like a war ensued.
Abel led the vanguard with his ax.
On the other hand, a dozen silver wolves appeared and ravaged the Planteras. Luna had manifested her wind spirit.
Some applicants from the Sorcery Department threw potions. Where the potions fell, thick vines grew and contained the Planteras.
Different attacks happened all over the place.
Flynn watched with interest.
The word cooperation lured some of them.
Others wanted to stand out from the crowd.
Each had their own reasons for doing so, they didn’t even think it was a trap.
Lilith paused for a moment when she saw the masked man in the rearguard.
What is he doing?
The man was walking calmly as if he didn’t want to fight.
Looks like that guy doesn’t want to cooperate.
When some Planteras came to the rearguard, others had to fight because the masked man was running away. He did it several times.
How can anyone be so selfish?
She felt anger.
He didn’t even have honor.
Lilith took her attention away from the man and ran to the vanguard.
The battle raged for hours.
It wasn’t until the sun had set that Lilith realized something was wrong.
Dozens of Planteras remained still.
They were firmly blocking the road into the Grace Range.
But the applicants could not continue fighting because they were exhausted or injured.
This is ridiculous.
She looked around at the faces of the disappointed applicants. They were all people who had fought Planteras with all their might.
It seemed that the masked man had foreseen this situation. When he looked around again, he could not find him. It seemed that he had entered the Grace Range.
She had to admit it.
He moved forward with astuteness, even though he was cowardly.
