I Was a Small Fish When I Reincarnated, but It Seems That I Can Become a Dragon, so I Will Do My Best - Chapter 223
My head hurt.
Chapter 5-25. Sheer Force of Numbers
Houen began to attack the monsters.
The fire continues to burn continuously and even spreads to other monsters.
It would be nice if this were a chain of flames, but …… that’s not going to happen.
The range of Houen is wide, but it does not seem to be able to attack all of the monsters.
He is busy attacking the enemy, coming this way and that way.
In addition, there were monsters in the sky.
Many times, he gets tangled up with them and is unable to attack monsters on the ground.
But he seems to have plenty of time to spare. ……
Does it seem like my concerns are unnecessary ……?
After Houen spearheaded the attack, the knight of the soil charged forward.
Because of their high speed, they arrived at Houen’s place quickly.
Then, they cut down the enemies.
Since the weapon they are carrying is a stone, it is like they are beating them to death, but that’s still good enough.
Using that speed, they attack the enemy while avoiding incoming attacks.
I think that magic is pretty strong, isn’t it?
However, even so, it seems that it was impossible to handle that many of them without support.
Look at these sheer force of numbers……
They attacked us all at once from one hundred and eighty degrees in front of us, and the waves of monsters could swallowed us up without a moment’s thought.
The monsters in the dungeon, the ones I encountered seemed to be generally smart.
It seems to be the same with the ones that are now on the surface here, and as soon as they figure out how to defeat it, they quickly execute it and lay waste to the rest of the soil knights.
They didn’t last long at all. ……
But thanks to that, all the monsters that attacked the soil knights fell prey to Houen’s attacks.
It seems that their main goal was to stall them and not to win.
“All right! Projectile launchers ready! Fire!”
As soon as the command was heard, the adventurers moved thet projectiles to send rocks flying.
The rock flew to where Houen was, but Houen caught it immediately and soared up to avoid the rock projectile.
He’s really mobile, isn’t he?
The rocks sent flying by the catapult caused a great deal of damage to the monster swarm.
The impact of the fall crushed several monsters and blew dozens of them away.
And the rocks kept rolling for a while with momentum, crushing dozens of monsters.
The rocks, broken by the impact of landing on the ground, took an unexpected trajectory and crushed the monsters to death.
Dozens of rocks killed the monsters in this way, but considering the number of opponents, this kind of damage is small.
It would be no more than a scratch.
Besides, it’s going to take a long time to shoot the next rock. ……
Oh well, I guess that’s true.
Just bringing that big rock to the top of the fortress wall would be a challenge.
There’s some kind of crane to lift the rocks, but there don’t seem to be enough of them. ……
While I was thinking about this, the enemy came within range of my spear.
The other adventurers are waiting for the enemy to come closer, perhaps not yet in their range.
I have been waiting for this, and I will do it!
Allow me to make the first move, then!
The Reamed Water Spear is extended as far as possible horizontally.
With the string stretched as tight as possible, I let it plunge straight into the crowd of monsters.
I let it hover roughly sixty centimeters off the ground.
At this height, I should be able to slay most of the monsters.
Here we go!
When I launched the spears into the swarm of monsters, the bodies of countless monsters were quickly cut off without any resistance.
With the momentum from their running, they rolled on the ground, making a rumbling sound, and were cut down to silence.
I was very surprised to be able to slaughter more enemies than I had expected.
The Remed water spear can’t extend its string very far.
Its length is about 20 meters.
I wonder if it would be possible to extend the length if I made a skill called “water thread” or synthesized it into something like that. ……
I don’t have time to do that now.
Alright, I’m going to move the spear and kill more and more enemies.
“But this is too much for just me alone!”
Houen’s attack with his Endless Flame and me with my Reamed Water spear.
None of the attacks had enough range to deal with all of the monsters.
There are just too many enemies!
One of the spears of my reamed spears was grabbed!
You bastard, let go of it!
With the other spear around as a pivot point, I’ll slash all the monsters around it!
Using the larger monster holding one of the spears as an axis, I move the other spear.
I was able to slay the surrounding enemies easily and the body of the monster that was grabbing one of the spears.
The spear was also now freed, and I immediately resumed my attack.
There’s no end to this, though!
It takes more than one spear to be this precise!
I’m going to do that!
I create a staircase from pneumatic shields and descend outside the city walls.
“Eh? Wa- wait a second Ouren-san?”
“What are you doing? We are almost in range! Please come back!”
“Don’t worry! After one blow, I’ll immediately fall back!”
Me, I pull out my Hakuryuzen and take up a horizontal position. (Iai position?)
I can hear the voices of adventurers behind me, but I have something more important to confirm.
“Hey! Can you shoot the catapult?”
“It’s almost ready to fire!”
I don’t really know how much damage this skill will cause, and I don’t know if it will work as well.
Which is why I want Houen to fly as high up as possible.
When the projectiles flew in, Houen flew upwards.
I want to take advantage of that and launch the Heaven Split at the same time.
Houen was flying low now and continuing to attack the enemy.
It would be best to not perform that skill in this situation.
While waiting in a ready position for a while, I heard the sound of a projectile flying by.
A rock passed through the sky overhead.
Houen saw the movement and quickly flew up into the sky again.
A red flame rose up.
Then the rock landed and hit and killed dozens of monsters.
This was the timing.
Houen stalled in the sky to pay attention to the flying rocks for a while.
He won’t come down to attack now.
It uses 100 MP, and I don’t know if I can control it well, but it’s the only chance I have to use it at a time like this.
Let’s go for it!
I haven’t used this in a long time!
This is the all-out, not the take-it-easy version of …….
From the side stance, the left leg is on the axis and the right leg comes out from the left side.
In short, rotate left, step forward with the right foot, and turn from behind to lash out with the three-foot sword, Hakuryuzen.
I think I did the stance beautifully….
How is it? I thought, turning my eyes forward.
There stood only a leg with a missing body, and its body was flying in the air.
“…… oops, I’m not sure I’ve ever seen anything like that before. W-well …… this Heaven Split is scary. ……”
The adventurer was unable to speak and was simply astonished.
