Gamers Of The Underworld Book 2 Chapter 575 | blue-white-sky
After a harrowing carriage racing event, Sherlock arrived safely at the Dungeon Lord Main Hall.
Marco Polo brought Sherlock and his entourage to the Dungeon Lord Main Hall after creating a post on the discussion forum. Before he had the chance to speak, the Mana Device on his body emitted a strange sound.
"Beep! You have a new order!"
Though Marco Polo wanted to see what the Strange Encounter Mission was about, he was blocked at the entrance. He was unable to enter the Hall, and the Mana Device was beeping frantically.
Marco Polo loved adventure and exploration. However, they required money. He didn't have a job, so working on these orders was his way of making fast money.
He was only required to drive the carriage. There was no technical skill requirement, and he didn't have to work 24 hours a day.
Many gamers of Eternal Kingdom were working as carriage drivers in Winterfell.
The gamers were hardworking, cheap, and earnest, though they would fail to turn up sometimes. However, the occurrences were rare. There was no reason not to employ the gamers.
Marco Polo felt it regrettable that he had to leave to work on his next order. Sherlock looked at the huge building and the carriages and Beetlemons that were parked outside, then said to his entourage, "Let's go."
Alexandria didn't only invite Sherlock. He also invited the Dungeon Lords that were close to Venice and the officials and Judges of the Merchant Alliance, including Onionhead, whom Sherlock was familiar with.
Many gamers weren't familiar with Onionhead because the ex-Dungeon Lord of Winterfell didn't interact much with the gamers. The gamers were only involved in the daily activities of Winterfell after Nicholas became the Dungeon Lord.
The gamers weren't unrelated to Onionhead. Beast, who took charge of the Sacred Light Worshiping Chapel in Eternal Kingdom, was the previous son-in-law of Onionhead.
Due to various reasons, Beast got a divorce with Onionhead's daughter and was exiled to Eternal Kingdom. Onionhead was supposed to be punished, but he became a Judge of the Northern Underworld.
A Judge was the highest-ranking officer with a lot of power.
"Lord Alexandria, it has been a long time since we met!"
Lord Alexandria was the host, so he was highly regarded by the crowd. When Onionhead arrived at the banquet, he immediately greeted Lord Alexandria.
Though it was a banquet, Onionhead was wearing neat armor. It was a regulation of the Merchant Alliance that a Judge had his own uniform, which was a set of smart-looking armor. He had to wear this uniform in public in order to accentuate his status and communicate the strict demeanor of the Merchant Alliance.
It was to show off his awesomeness.
"Welcome, Judge Onionhead. I'm very honored by your presence."
Alexandria opened his arms widely and walked towards Onionhead. Both of them hugged like close friends who had known each other for a long time.
It was a difficult feat for a Gnome and a tall superior Devil to hug together. It was a highly technical subject that wouldn't be elaborated.
Both of them looked very close as they started chatting. However, they had only met a few times. Very soon, other officials and Dungeon Lords approached Lord Alexandria to socialize.
When Sherlock entered, everyone was focused on him.
A smartly dressed and handsome superior Devil was accompanied by a black-scaled young Dragon, a black kitten, a fiery red parrot who was perched on his shoulder, a pretty Succubus, and a Lich.
It was an entourage with odd combinations. But the superior Devil, who was right in the middle of the entourage, made the group look natural.
Sherlock was very prominent. He had used various ways to defeat his powerful enemies.
A Goblin army defeated the Devil vanguards of Devil King Mammon. It was a topic everyone was discussing.
Hmm, that was correct. The superior Devil that was right before the crowd was the legendary Dungeon Lord of Eternal Kingdom.
Since he was mentioned many times in newspapers and the media, the officials and Dungeon Lords were able to recognize Sherlock's face. When Sherlock appeared at the entrance, everybody looked at him. Those who were bold or creatures who knew Sherlock greeted him.
One of them was the previous Dungeon Lord of Winterfell, Onionhead.
"Lord Sherlock! I didn't expect to meet you again in such a short time. We haven't met each other for half a year. I've missed you!"
Onionhead had just hugged Alexandria. When Sherlock walked through the main entrance, he struggled to free himself from Alexandria's arms before dashing towards Sherlock. Before he could open his arms to hug Sherlock, a Black Dragon stood in the middle to block him.
To be precise, it was a young Black Dragon.
"Can I help myself at the buffet area?" Eggface looked at Sherlock and asked in anticipation.
"What? Are you going to the buffet area now? What are we going to eat later? Meow."
Polio was astonished and asked fearfully, while Phoenix nodded and said, "I share his concerns."
Sherlock didn't bother with his subordinates' bickering over their meals. He shook Onionhead's hand and said, "It has been a long time, Judge Onionhead. Your armor looks very good."
After the two of them dispensed their formalities, Sherlock declined other guests who wanted to socialize with him. Sherlock then looked at Alexandria.
Sherlock led his entourage to Lord Alexandria and greeted him before proceeding towards the buffet area.
