"How is the progress with the task you are watching over?"
"It's going well, although there are slight hindrance coming from the branch head's side, our methods are bound to succeed!"
"Remember! We can't lose 'him', 'I authorize you to use whatever means to complete this task', deliver these words to the main handler of the subject."
"As you wish master."
"Alright, leaving that matter aside, tell me how much have we lost to the mysterious 'clearer'."
"Yes, The first step of the great harvest plan was thwarted, we only managed to harvest one gate which held a small-level reserve, they main decoy team's gates have been mostly harvested, including 1 medium-level reserve acting as the trigger which was reported as empty, 2 small-level reserve ones who were cleared by the 'clearer', and lastly the counter-suspcion gate which the higher ranking team dealt with destroying all the reserve held inside…."
"So, you are saying that the plan which should have resulted in harvesting 75% of the reserves, have only resulted in a 10% harvest so far with the last large-level reserve gate's status being unknown?!"
"I see, this isn't normal by any means, it's apparent that the 'clearer' knew something and was doing this on purpose, and if it's so then that the last gate is also under imminent danger…"
"So be it, this will be a task personally assigned to you, hurry to the last gate and intercept the 'clearer' before he enters if possible, if not, then you would have to watch the gate till he comes out and confiscate any reserve he might have harvested, bring him back alive if possible, but kill him if necessary, I will leave that to your judgement."
The kneeling shadow suddenly flashed out of the room as a frown could be spotted on the sitting dark haired silhouette.
'Humph! What a nuisance'
"Shadow one, investigate the decoy team for me."

I finally collapsed to the ground after I embedded my sword in the heart of the vicious ogre and receiving the system notif…
1 day into the gate and I had only cleared it halfway, if this was a normal game then this gate could only be a hell difficulty dungeon!
Of course, this was relative to one's strength and the number of challengers, after all, while I could handle lv.60~70 monsters with little effort, that was only individually, in this gate which had even lv.75 monsters popping out as groups even I would have to concede….
It would require a team of 3~5 of similar abilities to mine to smoothly clear this gate, yet it was classified as a lv.40+ gate and assigned to a lv.20 team….
That only meant one thing according to my earlier experiences, the more abnormal the gate is, the more crystals it would hold, meaning it held an important position in the schemer's plan.
But despite all the problems and the effort needed, I could only say it was more than worth it! even when disregarding the importance of thwarting the evil scheme!
On the crystal side of things, I had already collected 25 crystals so far, it sounded like a small amount when compared to other gates but the main point was that it held grade-three crystals instead of one or two! One could not expect the amount found after the full clear while keeping the fact that the biggest amount of crystals would be usually found in the boss room.
On the other hand, this gate could only be considered as the paradise of leveling and training, the increase in proficiency became apparent to the point that the system started announcing it!
I even had to start using my passive 'Combat Analysis' skill which I had almost forgotten about to finish the group battles with as few injuries as possible, leveling it by two levels in a single day!
- Today's chapter! Enjoy!
- As I would be quite busy for the next week and possibly even for the week after it, I might not be able to deliver the usual 9 chapters/week, so I would be mainly trying to at least deliver one chapter/day while increasing the chapter length slightly and maybe throwing a bonus chapter in whenever I'm able able to, cheers!
