The Immortal King
That Undead was standing on top of a mountain of corpses. I could feel that it was slowly seeping its powerful magic throughout the entirety of the Dungeon.
A first glance it looked like a magician that had left only his skeleton behind. In his hand he was holding a fine staff, and he had numerous jewellery around his neck and fingers.
“Are you the ruler of this place?”
It didn’t respond and just continued looking at me, like it was trying to examine me. I ended up using Appraisal on it as well…

This one was definitely trouble! His level was way higher than mine, and I couldn’t even check his status with my Appraisal.
‘Will my magic really work on him!? Guess I’ll just have to try it…’
The enormous dragon appeared and dived straight towards the monster!! Usually that would have been enough to burn down any monster… however, just as I thought that…
The fire bounced off in front of the monster’s hand. The fire couldn’t touch him at all, like he had been surrounded by some kind of bubble. Is this…
It was the same as the Unique Skill that I had.
‘Does he have it as well?’
Just as I was thinking that, the monster slightly opened its mouth and in a low voice, started chanting something that sounded like a curse.
[Breath of Decay]
A bluish purple smoke suddenly appeared and began drifting towards me at high pace. However, because I also had Barrier and Complete State Immunity, it didn’t have any effect.
Its expression didn’t change at all but I guess it must have also been shocked by what had happened just now, probably…?
‘But still, I didn’t expect that I’d be able to understand what it was saying… Can it maybe speak Japanese? Rather it doesn’t feel like it’s speaking, but rather like its thoughts are directly being transferred to me…
Hm!? Can this be due to Telepathy!?’
This was the time when I realized that I could actually use Telepathy in order to communicate with monsters that had intelligence.
We were viciously exchanging spell after spell! However it was clear that my magic was getting pushed back!! It appeared that it was better than me when it came to magic.
I thought of stopping time and attacking it, however, if I were to stop time I wouldn’t be able to use magic or Gravity Manipulation. That’s because if anything was separated just a bit from my body during that state, it would lose all of its properties and power.
In the worst case scenario I could always stop time and just beat it with my fists, however, my fists didn’t have Magic Particles in them… And I’ve heard that weapons that don’t have Magic Particles inside of them, does no damage against monsters.
Furthermore considering this monster’s high level, it was even less likely to work.
In the midst of all of that, the situation slowly started changing…
I became able to use the same spells. They became stronger as well, so I was finally somehow able to hold my own…
‘Is this the effect of Imitation!?’
After the magic fight turned into a stand still, the other side started getting a bit irritated.
[Who the hell are you! How can you use my magic!?]
“Did you finally feel like talking?”
I got close to The Immortal King. After landing, I finally managed to get a better look at him, after which I continued talking.
“Because of your Undeads, the surface has had it really tough you know. I would like to ask you to stop…”
[I’m afraid I cannot do that… It’s my task to continue raising the Undead!!]
“Who was the one that gave you that task?”
Without answering, The Immortal King raised his hands towards the sky…
“I’m done for!!”
Around The Immortal King, a black aura started gushing out like a fountain, and an enormous amount of energy began to form in the air. With my current level of Imitation I couldn’t possibly be able to imitate that high class magic.
