Chapter 258: Vortex Swirling Inside of Your Throat Part 1
When you get down to the military strategy of the defense that the Vorpal Bunnies want to carry out here, you can break their units into three basic types: we have the Tanks that block the path of the incoming Goldunines spawn, attackers who will wipe out any enemies that will manage to get through the Tanks defenses and Carpenters that will block any of the side paths and tunnels in order to prevent any sneak attacks.
And thats about it.
Well, there are also other types of units here, like field medics and logistic support, but if you were to summarize the type of thing we have going on here it would mainly be: Stop, Hit, and Close.
My role here is fairly simple: while we push the enemy back in the early stages of the operation, I am to penetrate behind the enemy lines and hunt down their commanders, getting rid of them as fast as possible.
The commanders are the priority target here, as they are the ones that are responsible for generating the poisonous vapors that are killing off the Vorpal Bunny defenders.
While we are at it, in this Quest Akitsu Akane will support both the attacking squad and the Carpenters Squad according to their needs, Emul will handle logistical support and both Edward and Sickle will act as Tanks at the very frontlines.
「Is it really okay for our commander to go to the frontlines like that」
「Being at the frontlines where the battle are the toughest is the responsibility of those with Vorpal Soul.
Those are the words of our Father.」
So, according to those words, wont I be doing something completely opposite Is it not going to negatively affect my Vorpal Soul meter Oh well, best not to think about it too much.
I will just do what needs to be done.
However, I still think that I have way too little information regarding the Goldunines offspring.
A very small amount of Vorpal Bunnies managed to witness them in the first place, and the number of those who did and were still alive to tell the tale was even smaller.
As a result of the search and investigation I have conducted together with Emul, the only thing we managed to pinpoint was that the size of the commanders was “not all that large”, and that they “do not look like mere snakes”.
If they are not your typical snakes, this leaves us a variety of possible options here.
They could be like Orochi type snakes, or maybe even Medusa type snakes…… However, if the Vorpal Bunnies, creatures that are small to begin with, say that they are not all that big in size, this means that they are not the size of Luukan or Kutanid.
Or at least I want to believe that it is like that.
If they were just like the Crystal Scorpions, well…… No, those things were as big as passenger cars, so…… That would be a problem in and out of itself.
「I dont think it needs to be said, but there tunnels further ahead are going to be completely covered in darkness.」
「I would expect nothing less.
Good thing that us Pioneers are good with the dark.」
After all, players can see in the dark far better than NPCs can.
Well, we still see our surroundings as pretty dim, but it is far better than a pitch black void.
If the enemy will try something flashy on me, I will notice it right away, but when it comes to careful sneak attacks…… I cannot rule out that I might fall victim to them.
「Should I update my respawn point just in case…… No, it might be possible that I wont be able to make it if I will have to run all the way through the tunnels again…… Oh well……」
Somehow, now that I am here and I received that new Bunny sword for myself, I get the feeling as if the great Caffeine Boddisathva was putting me to the test…… What am I even saying Even I dont seem to get it.
「Cough, cough…… Alright, listen up.」
Edward seemed to have cleared his throat and took of his glasses.
Ohh, this gesture usually means that a calm and composed character is about to get serious.
And right in the next moment……
「YOU BLOODY FOOLS!!!」
Not that I was not expecting something like that, but still…… At that moment the ears of Akitsu Akane and I were assaulted by a truly loud noise.
This seemed to have filled the last missing piece of the puzzle.
There was a small ramp in front of us, and Edward was standing there, suddenly adapting the speaking pattern of a yakuza from kansai region…… I dont know if this is the thing with all of the Vorpal Bunnies of high bred, but this surely is scary.
「OI, OI, Oi, Oi, OI, YOU STUPID BASTARDS! PULL YOUR HEADS OUT OF YOUR ASSESS AND GET READY TO FIGHT!!! WE ARE GOING TO KICK THOSE SNAKES ASSESS SO GOD DAMN HARD THAT THEY WILL THINK TWICE BEFORE THEY DECIDE TO INVADE US AGAIN!!!」
Even though that roar of Edward was ridiculous in more ways than one, all of the surrounding Vorpal Bunnies turn towards him, their furs standing straight.
「We are not going to lose this time! We will not stop! We shall fight till the very last breath! We are going to win this! We are going to drive those **ing snakes out of our land! WE are going to show them our wrath! We are going to show them not to mess with us!!!」
Swords, axes, spears, shields, mallets.
One after another, Vorpal Bunnies raise their weapons and raise their own battle cries, filled to the brim with malicious intent and craving for blood.
With every passing second, the will to fight of those guys was climbing even higher.
「Magic Bombardment Corps…… LINE UP!」
「Ah, I do believe that this is my cue as well! Well then, Sanraku-san, please do your best!」
Vorpal Bunnies with magical equipment line up in a row, and Akitsu Akane mixes in with them.
「LETS FUCKING GO, YOU BASTARDS!!! YOUD BEST BE PREPARED FOR WHATS COMING FOR YOU!!!」
