The Second Floor of the Tower is also known as Evankhell's Hell or The Floor of Test. The floor is publically known as a place to find the talented but its true purpose is to maintain the safety of the tower. In the past it was a floor with simple tests like any other, but the intrusion of certain Irregulars such as Urek and Phantaminum caused the incumbents of the Tower to feel insecure. In order to maintain their power the floor of tests was made into a place where 'dangerous elements' could be weeded out before they could become a real threat to the Ruling Class.
Evankhell killed the former ruler (who belonged to a Great Family) and took ownership of the Floor (from fancafe Q&A on Naver.com). Evidence of this can be seen on the symbol which still remains on the corner of the building.
Note that depth of colour changes in the presence of light.
Also, the windows in the building are actually dormitories inhabited by the Regulars.
When people pass the Second Floor, they (apparently) recieve rings to signify their approval.
Characters of Note, in order of Rank:Edit
Testing Director/Proctor: Yu Han Sung.
- Update: Leo-Ro didnt like the change of motto from "choose worthy" to "let dangerous ones fail" so he quit. Quant got fired because of Yu Han Sung whim. (Both Leo-Ro and Quant are currently trying to join Walhaiksong)
The story on the Second Floor starts with the "Deathmatch" Test. The test is simple. Four hundred people start the test. When that number is reduced down to two hundred the test ends. During this test Baam meets his companions Rak and Koon who he teams up with. Also during this test Anak, Ship Leesoo and Hatsu meet and form a team.
All the regulars from the first test are teleported somewhere else were they take Lero-ro's test. His test is also simple. Walk through a Shinsoo Barrier that he created. The test is to weed out people with poor Shinsoo Resistance. This is necessary because dense shinsoo is common in the higher levels of the tower.
Next came Yu Han Sung's examination in which the Regulars had to rely on a few scant clues to select the "correct" door out of twelve identical doors. The real answer to the test was in fact to open any door before five minutes were up.
After Yu Han Sung's examination it was revealed that the next group of people killed each other down to three survivors. When Yu Han Sung asked what happened he was told that the district included both an irregular and a Zahard's Princess.
Yu Han Sung expressed concern that this development would upset Evankhell when he got back. To help deal this problem he decided to host a bonus game called the Crown Game. Note Androssi's team also had to pass the Barrier and Door tests, so they could be chosen for the Crown Game. During the crown Game a number of things happened including a wager with Anak which caused Baam to lose the Black March.
After the crown game ended people had a brief three day rest before the next test started. During that time Leo-Ro talked to Yu Han Sung about the results of the Crown Game. Leo-Ro says Rachel's team didn't advance the crown game was pointless, but Yu Han Sung says that adding Rachel's team to the game stopped the most dangerous person to the tower from advancing so it was worth it.
Also during the rest period Anak finds out that she can’t get the Black March to work for her. Androssi Zahard reflects one her experience with Rachel and Rachel tells Koon not to tell Baam that she is there.
After the rest everyone gets together and Leo-Ro explains the rules for the Position Test. The Position Test involves earning points by performing well at your position. The people who earn the most points get to go on to the Final Examination.
During the Position Test all the regulars get to know each other more. Some notable things that happen include a fight between Anak and Androssi which almost disqulifies them.
Note: Rachel was previously read as Lahel due to some translational problems.
