Oh my sweet lord! That unique style of speaking. Those brilliant yet nonsensical metaphors....
Endol = Androssi!!!!
Interesting. So there is a traveler who looks awesome and a machine who is an AI controlled by a Human Being. Seems that the AI is keeping hostage that girl's body.
It's missing the MOST imporatnt plot point of the chapter! T_T
By the way, Emile is an allusion to the Emille Bell.
Heh, I guess Emily is just not true to herself, she thinks one thing but speaks another...
the traveler seems to be important. i dont know why but i am liking him already
BTW did we go through another time skip?
It's unclear exactly how many of the five years have passed so far, however, as Koon's team is still doing tests in order to, most likely, get to the 30th Floor and the Workshop Battle.
My understanding was that it was supposed to be a 2 year skip, it was 2 years ahead that the workshop tournament would take place. And that is where Baam could meet up with his friends. Which means on top of the 6 years that have already passed/been skipped since the start of the series Baam would be on the 30th floor in roughly 8 years.
Did SIU really take this(, ) "Emille Bell" as a reference ???
I got the impression he did. God, I think SIU is really something, he tells us a story, and at the same time attracts people to go visit Korea's national treasures(attracts turists).
This prologue gave me an impression, similar to China where a bell would be calling you to "a delicious meal". Perfect for "calmly" telling to readers: "People now gather, and silently enjoy, while watching"...

Did you guys notice at the end of the raw version is a conversation between Emile and somebody called ???.
For some reason that very short conversation isn't in the MangaPirate translation.
Basically ??? tells Emille that the 25th Baam lives. Emile seems curious. And ??? doesn't look like he will reveal any more.
Knowing that Emile asks questions I think she will ask "Who/What is 25th Baam" to all the people seen talking to in this chapter.
Imagine Androssi's reaction to that. Then Speeder would ask Koon, and Miseng would ask Viole. Everyone would figure out that Baam lives from Emile after that.(OfCourse Viole knows but he would know others do too)
What's interesting is that the chat rooms don't appear to be private, unless if Repellista and that crazy guy/girl at the end have special access to the messages.
The traveler does appear to be quite curious, especially as we've never really seen anyone selling weapons before, although I suppose that that may become more common as we get closer to the 30th Floor. To me, it almost seemed as if the guy who was walking in front of him was Baam.
In fact, we've only ever seen a few weapons in use, and never for a sustained period of time. Black March was ignited once in the series, Green April was used during the Crown Game, but Anak was shut down by Lero-ro because of the massive gap in their levels, Hong Chunwa and Androssi used the ignited Narumada for a few moments, Wangnan uses his bombs, Akraptor has his umbrella (Hagrid time), Kurudan uses a hammer (I think), and Lero-ro and Hachuling pull weapons that they like, but don't use them.
SIU did tell us that battles that rely on having an actual team who use the five primary positions will become more prevalent (something we're bound to see in the Workshop Battle), so I also think that we'll see more weapons in use.
