Shatei Kyokufuri Yumi-Ojisan - Chapter 206
Data.196 – Old Bowman, Deciding Factor of Victory
“I don’t know about that.”
Necoco joined my conversation with Buckler.
“It’s true that you got him away from the castle and made him use Warp Arrow. But why are you so satisfied? There are things that you lost in the meantime.”
“Hmph. What could you be talking about…”
Buckler stumbled on his words.
No, he was interrupted.
It was echoing in my head right now… The announcement that one of his teammates had been killed…!
“Thanks, old man. I was able to defeat the first one because of you.”
Necoco had been able to push Slasher to the brink and defeat him!
Now it was 4 vs 3!
The battle…was moving in our favor!
“Let’s keep going! Satomi!”
“Yes, it’s about time!”
Right now, nearly all friends and foes had gathered in this area!
Necoco had rushed here after defeating Slasher, and Satomi had pursued Sweeper.
Anne had already been fighting Crusher near the church, and I had been chased by Buckler.
So we were all here…!
Except the enemy was one person down.
That could be the deciding factor!
Satomi used a Miracle Effect to summon two more Unisons.
Gochu the monkey, Buffi the pig, and Kapaparuto the kappa all used fire, wind, and water attacks respectively.
And most of their charge attacks were ‘magic attacks’ that were calculated by the Magic Attack and Magic Defenses stats.
While Buckler was strong against both physical and magic attacks, he was still more on the physical side, and magic attacks had been more effective against him in previous fights.
I was physical, and so was Necoco and Anne!
And so Satomi was quite important, as the sole person who mainly used magic.
Also, while most people relied on items to heal in NSO, Satomi was also our healer.
The party relied on him a lot.
And we relied on him now as well…!
“I won’t let you do that…! Forbidden Ground of Pain!”
Declared an enemy player, Crusher the monk. And then my body suddenly grew heavy!
And then I lost my balance and fell from the church roof and onto the ground…!
“Gah…! What is…”
He had not used this skill during any of the previous battles…!
My guess was that it was a Miracle Effect, but I wasn’t sure.
However, if it was able to throw all of us onto the ground at once, it must be something very special!
Because this attack had affected all the players that were within a few meters range of Crusher.
Even his own party members…
“Hey, you baldy! Why are you hitting me with that!”
“It’s your fault for not running away in time. I told you in advance.”
“Grrr…! My Miracle Effect hadn’t worn off yet, but now it’s wasted!”
“Hehehe! Well, just sit there quietly and watch!”
So Sweeper’s Gunship Broom had been a Miracle Effect after all.
It must be similar to Petta’s combined charge attack, Trumpetter.
The flying ability was just a bonus, and the main purpose was the attacks that could be used while flight was activated…
In Sweeper’s case, it would be the cannon beam.
Judging by what she had said, she could have likely unleashed it a few more times. But now the barrel was pointing away, and she wouldn’t be able to target anyone.
As for Buckler, he too was a prisoner of this enhanced gravity.
He was already heavy to begin with, so now he could barely even move.
But it hardly mattered.
Cause I still couldn’t defeat him in this state…!
But the worst thing of all was that Crusher himself was not affected by this!
If this continued, we would just be waiting as he went around and killed us one by one…
We had to do something!
If it was an effect that strengthened gravity, then maybe if I made myself lighter I could… No!?
While I could crawl a little, I couldn’t stand up…!
“Unfortunately for you, Archer, this isn’t an effect that increases the gravity within a certain space.”
But now that I thought about it, that did make sense.
I had been standing on the cross on the church roof. So if gravity was pulling me downward, then I could have been impaled by the cross…
However, I just rolled down to the roof and fell onto the ground.
As if the ground was sucking me towards it…
So it was just an effect that pulled people towards the ground…!
This was terrible…!
That means that any arrows I unleash will also be pulled down!
“You are quick to understand. I knew that you were dangerous. And so I would like to snuff you out first… However, I’m too scared to get close to someone who has that great skill that stretches up to the sky…! And so I’ll leave you for last!”
And then Crusher headed towards Satomi!
Tsk. Wasn’t there anything that I could do…?
And maybe I shouldn’t just believe everything he said, and try shooting an arrow…?
No, Necoco just unleashed Thunder Sky Sever Claws, and it was pulled towards the ground and vanished before reaching anyone.
If that was what happened to thunder, then there was no way that my arrows wouldn’t be affected…!
All of a sudden, I could hear Garbow’s cry.
It was very quiet. But not because it was far away.
As if it was being blocked by something…
I had thought that the circle drawn on the ground was just for decoration, but it was a manhole!
And I could hear Garbow’s voice coming from it!
This map seemed a lot smaller than the Jumbo Athletic Park, and the reason for that was there was an underground area you could travel through…!
When I put my ear to the ground, I could hear the sounds of water, so it was likely a sewer area!
Either Garbow had started down there or had entered it for some reason.
And when Unisons were alone, they traveled towards the player they were the closest to.
And since we were all together now, it made sense that Garbow would come here.
So, I had a lot more options now.
Garbow’s combined charge attack, Armageddon Arrow had not only overwhelming destructive power, but a propelling force that was unstoppable.
And so it should work even in this space…
The problem was, who should I target with it?
Crusher, the person who made this space…
Buckler, who was the most dangerous…
This would be the real deciding factor!
