The Immortal Player Book 2 Chapter 124
Somewhere in the West of the Aquari Continent, the cold wind whistles as it breeze through the bloody plains. Thousands of dead monsters and players lay everywhere as their blood made the soil muddy.
Sat on top of a corpse of a giant orc, that lay the highest, was a man seemingly in his late 20s. His arms rested on top of his knees while his sword rested on his shoulder to the orc's belly; where he was seated. His eyes surveyed their surroundings and gasped as if he was smoking a cigarette. Paired with his a thick and sinister mustache, he resembled a leader of a winning military force of war during the early 1900s.
"And this was supposed to be a game?" He asked himself as he took another breath.
Before he could speak another word, a good looking man walked through the mud of blood without complaint and asked, "Guild Leader Wan! The scouts reported to me that these were the last batch of monsters from the Eastern Forest!"
"There's none?" He asked as his face frowned. Then, he glanced towards the forest towards the east and said, "That's odd... Shouldn't they be attracted to the smell of blood?"
"They should be, guild leader!"
"Fhaco, tell Ronaldo and Hoben to investigate what is happening. Ask those students and the scouts to join them." He ordered.
"Guild Leader... Won't it be ideal to send the 'pawns' instead?" Fhaco asked.
"The Students?" Guild Leader Wan frowned as he glanced towards Fhaco as if he was about to scold him. However, Guild Leader Wan took a deep breath instead and said, "Don't call them pawns... They might seem weak but some of them were actually capable."
Guild Leader Wan paused as he glanced at some players who were gathered in a spot and formed groups of five. Then, he said, "Besides... I am deeply interested in what is happening in the east! I heard that those @rds are creating a ruckus."
"Are you planning to take revenge, guild leader? We're roughly around a few hundreds left after this battle. How are we even going to match their hundred thousand men?"
"Who knows, Fhaco?!" Guild Leader Wan burst into laughter, then he said in a fearsome tone, "But it doesn't mean that we can't defeat them!"
Guild Leader Wan smirked as his eyes stared towards the east, filled hatred and an extreme desire to take revenge. This, in turn, sent shivers down Fhaco's spine, making him salute towards Guild Leader Wan with his palm facing upwards instead of downwards.
"Salute!" Fhaco said.
Guild Leader Wan returned his salute and murmured, "Those @rds... Just they wait! Kicking Filipino Players from the Asian Players Organization just because of a single energy company? We'll show you how terrifying we could be!"
Eastern Aquari Continent, Three Kilometers away from the Naga Kingdom. A Kilometer away from the origin of the monsters that were charging towards the Naga Kingdom. Three men were fighting for their lives as they killed monsters after monsters and advance towards the direction of the Naga Kingdom.
One of the three men shouted, consequently pinning all the monsters around them into the ground. Their bodies seemed like it was being crushed by a giant boulder, disabling them to lift their bodies no matter what.
Soon, the intensity of the pressure above them became stronger, enough to burst some parts of their body and crush or break some of their bones. At this moment, the man flicked his tongue and grumbled, "Those @rds! Just they wait! They have underestimated us too much!"
"Relax, Brother Arvedar!" One of the medium-haired guys said, who had a hair that laid in front of his face enough to cover his left eye. "You got the Gragan Inheritance, while Lony and I have a special eyeball. All we need to do is level up and join our fellow Filipino Players... And we can pay them back with their sh1ts!"
"Aish- Roval! Help me turn these monsters into stones, will ya?" Lony, the other medium-haired guy with a gray right eye, scolded as he glanced at a wolf that slowly turned into a rock. Consequently, it broke and crumbled into pieces because of the pressure caused by the skill of the man named Arvedar.
Roval flicked his tongue in response as he lifted his hair that was covering his left eye, and revealed the same gray eye with Lony's. He glanced towards another wolf that was held in place and turned it into stone.
Lony and Roval didn't need to focus their 'special' eyes towards their target. They could simply glance at them and their targets would slowly turn into stone. At the same time, for some reason, it would only work to the 'targets' that they 'intended' to turn into stone. Thus, even if they were able to glance at other things or even at Arvedar, nothing would turn into stone unless they 'wanted' it to be.
The only backdrop of their seemingly overpowered skills is that it takes time to turn something into stone. It was not instantaneous.
Lony and Roval didn't even know the information about their eyes nor how to 'properly' use them. It's just that they use it based on the results of their 'trial and error' tests. The same could be said for the man named Arvedar.
He could somehow 'increase' the gravity around him, thus, pulling 'specific' targets down to the ground. He can increase the pressure 'as he wanted to', but he doesn't know the exact specifics of it. That said, they knew that the skills they had should be classified amongst the overpowered ones.
"Stop arguing!" Arvedar scolded as his forehead weaves a few lines. Then, he said, "Let's focus leveling up and kill as many monsters as we can!"
Lony and Roval's faces went pale as their bodies felt a tad bit heavier and their feet sank a few centimeters into the ground. They forced out a smile and said, "Yes, brother!"
