Because of the shocking attack on the mountain, the residents of Atlanta City took out their weapons as they walked on the streets. Quan Zhen Sect and co. went in the direction pointed out by Reynolds and very soon, they arrived at the plaza which was at the heart of the city.
The current plaza was already filled with all sorts of people. The only similarity was that all these people were fully equipped, prepared for a battle.
Looking at all the shiny equipments on these residents, all the players were exceedingly jealous. If it was not for the fact that they were NPCs on their side, some of the players might even start attacking them.
At the centre of the plaza was a platform where an old man with a white beard spoke, “The Church’s army has arrived at our city. They want us to destroy countless years of sweat and blood of the Atlanta Tribe. My children, does anyone have anything to say?”
“We are not going to let them do that!” They had no idea who was the first to shout this, but everyone echoed the same logic. “We’re not going to agree. Even if he is God, we will not give in so easily.”
“Great! No wonder you’re all people of Atlanta with unyielding determination. Foreigners, what about you guys? Do you want to fight with us?” After the Great Elder addressed the crowd, he turned to look at the players.
All the residents turned to look at them too.
“What if we say no?” a cautious Ming Du asked.
“Then you will be our enemy,” the NPCs replied in unison.
“Tsk, then what other choice do we have? Of course, we’ll stand by your side.” As the leader, Ming Du made the decision on behalf of everyone.
Quest Objective: Assist the people of Atlanta to prevent the invasion of God’s army. Current quest completion level 0%.
Everyone couldn’t help but curse when they saw the quest notification. Originally, the monsters in the dungeon were already of much higher levels than players. Presently, these monsters could take on ten of them at once? How is this even fair?
Of course, nobody questioned Ming Du’s decision. In such a situation, nobody dared to suggest any alternatives. If they chose to help, there was a high chance they would be killed by the Holy Knights. However, if they chose not to help, they would definitely be killed at that moment by the people of Atlanta City.
“Boss Fearless, what do we do now?”
At this moment, Moonless Thunder walked up to ask Fearless.
In terms of difficulty or scale, this dungeon was at a level which Moonless Thunder had yet to encounter in <
Fearless pointed at the gap at the mountain range cleaved by Ruling Official Coulee as he shouted, “Up the mountains!”
Coulee might be powerful, but he was still lacking in terms of IQ. The Lawrence Mountain Range cuts across the mainland horizontally and was over a few thousand metres long. After Coulee cleaved it apart, the two peaks of the mountains turned into a standard sky terrain.
This route would not be a problem for ordinary people to cross. However, if it was used for armies to fight a war, it was extremely easy to be a target for an ambush. This was not a terrain people would want to fight wars in.
“Aren’t we a little too late to hide in the mountains now?” Moonless Thunder asked.
Lawrence Mountain Range was over a few thousand metres tall. By the time they could ascend the mountain, the enemies might have slaughtered everyone in Atlanta City.
Fearless sighed, “Atlanta City even has flying devices, do they not have some sort of cable car to ascend the mountain?” After saying that, Fearless turned to ask the Great Elder, “How do your people usually ascend the mountains?”
The Great Elder pointed to a platform not too far away. “That can bring you up.”
Indeed, the people of Atlanta City were all so smart. How would it be possible that they would ascend the mountain by foot?
After everyone received the Great Elder’s notification, they climbed onto the platform. After the Great Elder knocked on the ground with his walking stick, the platform started floating steadily towards the peak of the mountains.
At this moment, Reynolds had already brought Coulee elsewhere for a fight. The Holy Knights did not wait for their commander to return as they took their initiative to charge forward.
Because the mountain range was cleaved apart forcefully, the mountain walls were still quite sturdy. However, the mountain roads were filled with fallen rocks and trees which made it extremely difficult to move. The speed of an army moving through it was not fast at all.
When Fearless brought his men to the peak of the mountains, the Holy Knights had not moved beyond over a hundred metres…
“Boss Fearless, we did manage to avoid the Knights below by coming up. However, we won’t be able to reach them with our range of attacks too ah.” Berserk Thundergod couldn’t wrap his head around this plan.
“Has your brain gone haywire? Of course, we cannot reach them from so far away.” Looking at how slow the Holy Knights were progressing, Fearless looked at Berserk Thundergod disdainfully before instructing the Berserk Heavenlaw’s players. “Everyone, go and move some rocks over.”
“Move rocks? Don’t tell me you’re trying to use rocks to smash them? Heh, I think my brain has really gone haywire.” Berserk Thundergod suddenly realised.
Because Berserk Thundergod had played this game for too long, he subconsciously thought that the only to fight was through exchanges of skills. He actually forgot the most basic knowledge.
“Everyone, go and move rocks here.” After realising what was going on, he hurried to order his men to carry out Fearless’ instructions.
Initially, the players from Berserk Heavenlaw were still unwilling to listen to Fearless’ orders. Now that their own leader had given the command, they dared not disobey him, so they hurried to look for rocks.
At this point in time, Moonless Thunder suddenly asked, “Boss Fearless, where are the rest of your Quan Zhen Sect’s players?”
Initially when there were a lot of people, Moonless Thunder didn’t pay close attention. Now that everyone had moved out to shift rocks, there were only a few people left. This was when Moonless Thunder suddenly felt like something was missing.
Back then, the instruction was clearly for everyone to ascend the mountain. However, other than Fearless, there were no other players from Quan Zhen Sect at the peak of the mountains with them.
Could they have gone to shift rocks too? Impossible! Since when will those buggers do such dirty work… Therefore, Moonless Thunder was certain that the Quan Zhen Sect didn’t even ascend the mountain.
“Oh, them…” Fearless pointed at the end of the valley calmly, “Do you see that entrance of the valley? That is the perfect spot for an ambush.”
“Just a few of them?” Moonless Thunder questioned Fearless’ decision.
“What do you know?! With that kind of terrain, if one man holds the pass, even ten thousand men wouldn’t be able to pass. This will not be a problem at all. Since I am the commander of this quest, you need not question my decision,” a slightly irritated Fearless answered.
Moonless Thunder continued, “One last question. Why are your guys the one there?” For some unknown reason, Moonless Thunder felt really uneasy about Fearless’ arrangement.
“Haha.” Fearless faked a smile at Moonless Thunder as he replied, “Do you really need me to be so blunt? I really do not want to hurt your pride…”
“F*ck…” Moonless Thunder remained silent. Indeed, as compared to the players from Quan Zhen Sect, the so-called elites on his side were basically a joke.
After being disregarded by Fearless, the suspicions in Moonless Thunder’s heart disappeared again. Fearless smiled as he sent a message to Quan Zhen Sect. “Do not waste any more time, hurry up and do it.”
