Mages Are Too OP - Chapter 587
Chapter 587 – Filthy City
Chapter 587 Filthy City
Greene’s fury was well-grounded; Mages had always despised the unscrupulous method of throwing feces in a battle.
After all, Mages always represented elegance, mysteriousness, and nobility.
Throwing feces couldn’t cause any damage at all. It was more of an insult.
With reddened eyes, Greene suddenly turned around and told the other three elders, “Activate the magic arrays and our golems. The Great Elder is already dead and so is Oepmop. This is the Golden Sons’ genocidal war against us. Let’s not withhold our fatal methods anymore.”
The other three elders all nodded in agreement.
When they made the decision, clicking noises came from the outside.
One did not need to think to know that something must’ve been thrown over.
Fortunately, all four of them were protected by Magic Shields. Still, the smell in the air got stronger and stronger and vaguely permeated the shields.
The clicking noises came from outside every dozen seconds.
“We can’t wait any longer. Activate the magic defense arrays already.”
The trigger of the magic defense array was right in the conference hall, so the four Mages worked together to overturn the heavy table.
On the underside of the table was engraved a magic array that looked complicated.
Few people could realize that the core of the magic defense array of the Spatial Magic Tower was actually on the back of the long table.
This magic defense array could only be activated by three elders simultaneously.
There were four Mages here, which was more than enough.
Greene laid his hand on the magic array first. Then, Pylos and another three-eyed Mage did the same.
The monochrome stripes of the magic array were quickly illuminated. Three seconds later, a domed, transparent shield suddenly appeared above the city of Tebesia.
As the yellow feces were projected from a distance and stuck to the shield, half of the shield was covered by the sticky yellow stuff.
At this moment, everybody in Tebesia could see a thick layer of excrement hanging a hundred meters above them whenever they raised their heads.
It was rather exciting. However, the nasty appearance of the excrement was the least of their concerns.
At least half of Tebesia had already been drowned in the yellow excrement.
The excrement, fertilized by magic power, was extremely stimulating. It was very smelly and hard to get used to. Under normal circumstances, one would no longer sense any stink if they were in a smelly environment for too long.
However, the excrement fertilized by magic power largely worked on the mind or the soul directly.
It meant that however long they had been smelling it, people would still remain nauseated by it.
All of Tebesia was a living hell at this moment. All the residents were trying to cover their noses.
Masks and handkerchiefs were no longer effective. One could slightly ease the smell by putting a spice bag below one’s nose, but it wasn’t a permanent solution; the spice bag would soon be contaminated by the smell too.
People were vomiting on the street and at home. Those who couldn’t tolerate the smell anymore began to flee the city.
The magic defense arrays of the city had a special feature: entrance was forbidden, but it was okay to get out.
It was meant to make it easier for the defenders of the city to go out and attack, and for the citizens to escape.
As it happened, the two city gates were both in the coverage of the flying s*it.
Actually, the players had already figured that out thanks to their earlier reconnaissance.
The citizens of Tebesia strode out of the city unsteadily on the sticky, slippery feces.
They were so overwhelmed that their heads spun and they fell over now and then.
When they fell into the wet feces, they rose back to their feet in desperation. Not caring what their clothes were stained with exactly, they kept walking gloomily. “This is so vicious! Too vicious! Who has Tebesia pissed off? We don’t deserve such treatment!”
An old man wailed and covered his face while he stepped forward in the overflowing feces.
What he said made the citizens burst into rage. They were almost of a mind to kill the feces-throwers immediately.
However, in the next second, the pungent smell, mixed with the special hot airwaves of the desert, found its way into their noses again. They were instantly dizzy and almost threw up again.
They thought that this manner of attack was vicious, but actually, the players were holding back.
The players knew that there were plenty of innocent, ordinary people in the city, so they merely threw the feces balls that carried special smells.
What they didn’t throw was the green balls that carried infectious diseases.
There were also the yellowish, scorching feces balls, which would burn the enemy’s skin with their high temperature, so that the bacteria and poisons in the feces could break through the body’s defenses more easily.
Infection, tetanus, and other fatal infectious diseases could all be triggered by such burning balls.
The citizens, who were more or less covered in excrement, tried their best to flee as far away from the city as possible.
Some of them were stopped by the players soon after they left the city.
It was because the players could see the red HP bars above their heads.
“Surrender or die, make your choice.”
A dozen players surrounded them with a smile. The Mages and apprentices of the Spatial Magic Tower, who were pretending to be citizens, smartly raised their hands.
“It’s one of our strategies to force them to get out.” Wright, chairman of Fatter Cat, chuckled. “Any intelligent creature wouldn’t like such a filthy environment. It’s too late even if they are to establish the defense arrays. The excrement of the maggots won’t lose their smell so easily.”
The command center was filled with joyful laughter.
Exactly like what Wright said, the defense arrays of Tebesia had indeed stopped more feces balls from coming in, but they also kept the smell of the feces within.
The stench of the excrement that had already been dropped was trapped inside by the magic barriers.
The bell in the Spatial Magic Tower tolled, and an emergency meeting was convened. Only two-thirds of the members arrived; the other one-third were missing.
“Let’s leave the traitors aside and talk about the problem we’re faced with.” Standing on the high platform, Greene shouted at the official Mages and apprentices down below. “Our foes are the despicable foreigners. They’re shameless and have no sense of honor at all. They don’t deserve to be called our enemies, but they’re still formidable opponents.”
Hardly had Greene said that when someone gagged down below.
Although most Mages could cast Magic Shield, the problem was that they didn’t have the magic power to sustain one for long.
The cost of such shields was nothing for the Legends, but for the official Mages and the apprentices, it could be a very exhausting spell.
Everybody was holding off the smell with their shields, but they couldn’t keep it active for
When a magic apprentice ran out of magic power, he was instantly enshrouded by the smell and threw up.
It was like a starting signal. The apprentices who were trying to contain themselves couldn’t endure any longer. Their shields were gone, and undigested food squirted out of their stomachs.
The official Mages all stepped aside with gloom and nausea on their faces.
They weren’t amused at all, but felt rather sad and sympathetic, because their own shields couldn’t last long either.
Greene looked at this unbelievable scene of collective vomiting and didn’t say anything. His heart was filled with fury, yet he couldn’t let it out.
The morale of the Magic Tower was already very low.
If he were to burst into fury and punish them again, it would freeze the morale, which was low enough as it was.
“Next, we’ll activate the most powerful weapon of the Spatial Magic Tower. What you’re going to do is very simple.” Greene put on a cold smile. “Follow our weapons, and tear all our enemies into pieces or bring them back. Let them lick our city clean and eat their own discharges!”
Greene’s speech was provocative and blood-boiling. The low morale was instantly boosted.
“Kill those feces-throwers!”
“The wicked must die!”
About five kilometers to the east of Tebesia…
The cat-humans had already evacuated. Maromatha personally led them north, which was the direction where the wind was from in this season.
At this moment, all the cat-humans had been traumatized by the maggot spellcasters.
Too many cat-humans had passed out and vomited before.
At this moment, only the players were left in the base.
Some players were quite angry. They had a great time playing with the cats a moment earlier, but the cats were all scared off the moment the maggot Warlocks got to work.
There was even no telling if those cats would come back.
Then, they looked at the maggot Warlocks in an angry way.
As it turned out, the maggot Warlocks simply glared back at them with provocative smiles.
At the same time, they ate certain green matters to replenish themselves with food and energy.
The players who were bummed by the fleeing cats trembled and moved their eyes away.
In the command center, the chairmen of Fatter Cat and other guilds were discussing their next tactics.
“If I were the leader of the Spatial Magic Tower, I wouldn’t wait and die,” said a certain chairman. “It’s time to show their trump cards. I wonder what they’ve got.”
“What good stuff can they possibly have? Some alchemical equipment at best. It’s not like they can build a Gundam, can they?” The chairman of Fatter Cat laughed.
Everybody looked at him with obvious worry in their eyes.
The chairman sensed that the atmosphere wasn’t right, so he stopped smiling awkwardly.
At this moment, someone broke in and said in surprise, “The Mages of Tebesia are crazy. Look what they have built!”
The chairmen quickly ran outside.
They jumped to the wall, only to see an enormous shadow rising from the sands near Tebesia.
It had a bronze body and was thirteen meters tall even when squatting.
It would probably be more than twenty meters tall if it stood up straight.
From a distance, it looked like a gigantic robot.
The other chairman all stared at the chairman of Fatter Cat as if he’d jinxed them.
