“There’s only two of ‘em, this shouldn’t be too difficult,” said Tyrone coolly as he drew his Laser Gun and began blasting. Pew! Pew!
The laser sliced the Mammoth’s trunk right off of its face. With the tilt of a wrist, the laser beam moved and continued slicing through the huge beast’s body.
The Laser Gun’s massive power output was capable of producing much greater damage than either the Needle Gun or the Heat Gun. The Mammoth let out a death roar just as the gun’s photon energy ran out. Alisa and the others finished off the second Mammoth. (+1 COMBAT P, +2 MAGIC P)
“That was an impressive display, Tyrone,” remarked Lutz.
“Eh, this thing can only take on one or two of those big guys at a time. I would’ve been screwed if there had been more,” replied Tyrone as he replaced the energy cartridge on his gun.
The group returned to the outskirts of Aukbal. Eventually, after wandering around in circles for awhile, they came across another tower.
“This must be Corona Tower, I guess. Or not. Who knows, since half the townspeople are liars,” said Alisa, who apparently was talking to herself.
“You’re the one who’s going to diie!”
La Shiec turned into a hazy blur and disappeared, suddenly popping up right behind Alisa and her friends. In the next instant, missiles launched from his torso!
A roaring explosion followed that sent chunks of the floor flying at them. Even though no one took a direct hit, the group still took heavy damage from the attack. (-2 HP)
“Damn it, what kind of maniac launches a missile inside a room!”
“Hahahahaha! My body is equipped with a missile launcher and a speed booster. You vermin have no hope of winning!”
Being a dangerous area where monsters appear, there were Armor Shops all over the town.
- Laser Gun: 200 meseta
A gun with the best power. (If you have a HEAT GUN, then you can trade it in and purchase the LASER GUN for 100 MESETA. If you have a NEEDLE GUN, you can trade and purchase it for 150 MESETA.)
- Animal Glove: 150 meseta
Armor for Myau
- Psycho Wand: 150 meseta
A weapon for Lutz
(For each item that you buy, write it down on your Item List and subtract the total MESETA. Add 1 COMBAT P for each weapon bought.)
Alisa and her comrades left the store.
“And now to finish you off!”
La Shiec’s body convulsed once more.
The next moment, an explosion occurred behind Alisa! La Shiec’s head rolled on the floor, mixed in with mechanical debris.
“What the…? What’s going on?” Alisa asked Tyrone, who was lying on his side holding his Laser Gun.
“I had managed to get a hit on his stomach with a laser right when he used instant teleportation. The missile probably triggered it. Either way, it doesn’t matter how ‘instant’ his teleportation was, it still couldn’t beat the speed of light.”
“Bwahahaha!” La Shiec’s rolling head began to erupt in laughter.
“I bet you were thinking you had avenged your brother. How naïve, Alisa! I am Lord La Shiec’s shadow commander! The real one could never be defeated by the likes of you fools! Nngahh—!”
Alisa’s sword sliced the head in half.
The group left the hall and proceeded through the opposite corridor.
