Mages Are Too OP - Chapter 700
Chapter 700 – We’Ll Do It
The attack was so unexpected that the arrows, which could take turns, hit two targets.
The third arrow was knocked away.
The charging Warrior, on the other hand, simply slapped his shield into the face of an inert Mage. The Mage was flung back with white and red substances splashing out of his head.
Then, someone let out a barbaric roar and jumped out of the dark, and a Rogue suddenly emerged behind a Mage and stabbed him in the back.
The four of them killed four men in gray robes the moment they appeared.
The enemy’s formation was instantly disrupted. Roland extended his finger, and several Arcane Bullets spurted out and killed five enemies in three seconds.
“We’ve been ambushed! Fall back!”
The leader roared and wanted to go.
However, they couldn’t leave as easily as they came.
They had brought the Anti-Magic Arrows and the Dimensional Scrolls here specifically to deal with Roland.
In fact, they were not really strong. They only caused minor trouble for Roland because of their numbers and their equipment.
Now that their formation had been disrupted, and Roland was reinforced, the situation was completely reversed.
Roland snapped his fingers, and a dozen Hands of Magic flew out and helped his friends catch the strangers.
Very soon, they all returned. The Hands of Magic dragged over two people, and his friends were all empty-handed.
They shook their heads at Roland helplessly.
Li Lin explained, “They’re all bodies. They all fell when we caught up to them. The blue stains on them suggest that they’ve been dead for a long time.”
Roland looked at the two captives of his Hands of Magic. One of them was also motionless, whereas the other one was still struggling.
He tore the guy’s wolf-shaped mask off without hesitation, only to find that the man had golden hair, blue eyes, and a unique vibe.
After a brief daze, he narrowed his eyes and said, “You’re a player.”
The man stopped struggling and chuckled. “You see me through.”
“I don’t think there’s any grudge between us.” Roland asked in confusion, “Why did you attack me?”
“Who knows? I simply received a mission to deal with you and I was quite interested in it.” The player smiled unconcernedly. “Think about it. Isn’t it fun and thrilling to hunt the strongest Mage player server-wide?”
“Fun?” Roland stomped on the man’s stomach, making him scream in pain, but nothing more. After all, the players could only feel one-tenth of the pain in reality. “Is it fun to sell human organs and kill ordinary people?”
The man lay on the ground and snorted. “Don’t blame everything on me. I’m not exactly a good person, but I won’t do that kind of thing. Is PVP something nefarious?”
Roland was stunned. He performed an alignment test, only to discover, to his surprise, that the person had green light above his head.
It meant that he had really done nothing evil.
“Hahahaha!” The player laughed cockily. “Roland, you were smart enough to predict that we were going to ambush you and set up a trap against us, but you will never know who’s your enemy. Never.”
Roland sneered. “It’s just the liches, isn’t it?”
“If you think so, that’s fine.” The player laughed, stood up, and jumped at Roland, but his head flew before he got halfway.
Li Lin took his longsword back and seemed rather agitated.
Looking at the body on the ground, Roland heaved a helpless sigh. “It seems that we’ve lost our leads again.”
This was a trap that was specifically meant to deal with Roland.
Roland even suspected that his meeting with Watson was within expectation too.
However, he didn’t think they had manipulated Watson to do that. They had probably influenced a lot of people, and one of them was definitely going to report the matter to Roland.
He speculated that many players received the quest to investigate the human organ business.
One of the “variables” would deliver the intelligence to Roland, so that Roland would voluntarily fall for the trap.
However, Roland wasn’t an idiot.
After he killed Johnson and seized Jakang, he already realized that things had been going too smoothly.
Also, his instinct as a Mage told him that there would be danger.
So, he reached out to his friends and brought them to Aiello with Long Distance Teleportation. He asked them to follow him and help him if he was caught.
Roland’s foresight turned out to be well-grounded.
The enemy had truly set a trap for him.
They had set up such an enormous trap just in order to catch him… It seemed that they couldn’t be simple.
Were they players?
That couldn’t be right. A group of only players couldn’t have been so powerful.
After all, the Phoenix Guild was the greatest guild at this moment, and the main forces of all the major guilds were catching succubi in the Realm of Devils.
Those who stayed in the main plane were only the idlers such as Roland, the low-level battle players, and the casual players.
Roland thought for a moment and asked Li Lin. “Do you want me to take you back?” Li Lin waved his hands. “That’s unnecessary. We’re traveling anyway. This is a nice place to visit. I’m told that the girls here are quite skilled.”
Roland covered his head. “You’re doing this again. Didn’t you say that you would be sick of women for a long time?”
“It’s been four months since we talked to girls,” said Li Lin rather pitifully.
His other friends put on weird smiles too.
“Okay then. Have fun. I’m leaving.”
“Don’t be so hasty. Let’s hang out together.” Li Lin reached his hand for Roland. “We won’t tell the queen.”
Roland ran even faster.
He returned to Delpon with Long-Distance Teleportation and went to the Guild of Mercenaries, the Guild of Assassins, and the Guild of Bards.
He gave them a huge number of gold coins and asked them to investigate the wolf-masked men and the undead for him.
He wanted them to tell him everything they found.
You want to see who’s more influential? I have as many connections and friends as you do.
Then, Roland went to the capital of Delpon.
He found Antis at the city gate.𝘧reewℯ𝚋noѵ𝒆l. cｏ𝙢
This dude was even more attractive, or rather, feminine, than before.
Wearing an advanced white leather armor, he crossed his arms before his chest and looked at Roland. “How rare. I didn’t expect to see a man as busy as you.” “It’s been a long time.”
“Yes, we haven’t met since a year ago.” Antis heaved a sigh.
Roland asked rather curiously. “Why are you still watching the city gate? Has the king not promoted you?”
“Our family already has the highest rank of nobility. It’s not like I can be promoted to a king, can I?” Antis clicked his tongue. “Besides, it isn’t bad to watch the gate. I get to see a lot of interesting stuff.”
“I’m here because I have a favor to ask,” said Roland.
“I knew that you wouldn’t visit me for no reason.” Antis seemed rather frustrated. Together with his slightly pouting pink lips and his slim body, he would impress anyone as a woman who had been wronged by her lover.
Roland felt rather creeped out, but he kept smiling. “Just give me a hand. You won’t be working for me for nothing.”
“What do you want me to do?”
“Help me investigate some people.”
While Antis looked at him in surprise, Roland told him what happened.
In the end, he added, “In any case, the royal family wouldn’t want to see an organization that sells human organs to grow big, would it?”
After a brief silence, Antis said, “In fact, we’ve received reports on the matter too. Many lords claimed that a lot of bodies whose chests were emptied were found on their territory. But then, they sent letters saying that they were mistaken and that those whose internal organs disappeared were all beggars who were killed by beasts in the wilderness, so nobody looked into the matter again.” “Why didn’t you investigate it?”
“They didn’t want us to do that.” Antis shrugged helplessly. “They can administer their territory as they see fit as long as they don’t betray the crown.”
Roland clicked his tongue. “So many lords chickened out. This must be a very powerful group.”
“We weren’t too worried before.” Antis thought for a moment and said, “But if what you said is true, we’ll have to pay more attention. Don’t worry, we’ll investigate it. You can look into the matter too. We can exchange information later.”
“No problem.” The two of them chatted with each other for a while longer and then parted.
Antis, however, looked at Roland’s back and seemed rather lonely.
After he returned to Delpon, Roland kept wondering if there were any other people who could help.
In fact, it would be best to leave a bounty on the forum.
However, considering that there seemed to be players in that group, he might alarm the enemy if he were to post it on the forum. As he thought on and on, he did come up with an organization that might help.
“The Phoenix Guild.”
He flew to Wetland City and found the Phoenix Guild’s base in the woods. He visited Solisa.
It was possible that the male players hung around with the dead, but chances were slim that the beautiful girls who focused on Charm would love the company of bodies.
“The famous Master Mage is asking for our help.” After hearing what Roland came for, Solisa widened her eyes and burst into delighted laughter. “How rare. Wait, I have to make a video recording of this.”
“This is a secret mission that must not be disseminated,” said Roland casually.
“Fine.” Solisa helplessly turned off the camera system. “Why did you come to us? You should know that the girls aren’t good at PVP.” “I don’t need you to fight. You only need to help me find them from the forests of Hollevin.” Roland explained, “Most of them fight by controlling the bodies of the dead with their foul abilities. You have unicorns that naturally loathe the undead and evil creatures. They can smell them from kilometers away. So, I think you’re very suitable for the search mission.”
Solisa was quite satisfied with Roland’s theory. “Exactly. The Elven Summoners are a righteous and gorgeous class… Then, how much are you willing to pay?”
Her eyes were filled with golden light.
“Three hundred gold coins for your activities.” Roland paused for a moment and continued, “If you find their nest, I’ll pay you five hundred more gold coins in a year.”
That was so much money!
Solisa quickly stood up and patted her chest hard. “We’ll do it!”
