Doraemon

Hi, Doraemon is the best cartoon series in the world.

I grew up watching this cartoon, pretty much played a role in my childhood. If there would be accessories sold in Taiwan of Doraemon themes; I’d totally buy it. For reals.

Oh the picture. I drew that
Took me an hour lol

-kbyez

Just to let you know, I was trying to draw humanistic features on Doraemon. Lol

Im in a boring class

Ya… Im in a boring class, so i decided to make a blog sence ive practicly read all of the blogs/forums here

My opinion : LPQ is a disgrace to Maple Story. Omg!! So many newbs! Person calls something in one pq, then next pq, i call something he aparently wanted to do, and he says, “NO CALLING!!! CALLING IS FOR NOOBS!!!” ToT I leave the party.

The next day, i get into a party with 4 lvl 50s. 4 OF THEM!!!! So 2 of them are being total jerks, the leader expells them, then invites 2 lvl 35 pages. Im just kinda sitin there wondering, Why did you invite 2 lvl 35s? So then, theres 2 friends come out and ones lvl 36, and ones lvl 35. He expells the other lvl 50 people – who wernt doing anything wrong – and invites the other people. I ask him if those were friends of his or something. He said, “No, never seen them before in my life.”…. – Shutter –

Then next party i get into is full of lvl 35s. ALL of them are LVL THIRTY-FIVE! I was about to leave, but we got in. And you kno what else? None of them speak english! 3 were Dutch, 1 was Spanish, the other French! It was insane! I was about to go and kill myself! I left that party very angerly.

After that, a lvl 12 newb – i do not kno how he got to Ludibrum – came up to me, traded me, and said, “mesos please”. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I went and killed myself all the way to 0%! I was 83%! Do you kno how long that took?!

After all that, i turned off Maple Story, turned off the computer, went up to my room, went to a cornor, and curled up into a ball, and shivered. – Falls over –

And that was the worst day in Maple Story ive ever had. Cya next blog

P.S. : This happened when i was lvl 38, like, 9 months ago. And i currently am lvl 48 – Quit LPQ and Maple for a while

Good Old Times.

Oh sweet memories,
their value worth more then gold.
First Andromeda,then Incendiary.
All the fella g.mates we have.
The fun and laughter and jokes we make.
Then some quited,some went busy.
Some left,some went cabal.

But dispite the sad fact that we are slowly fading away,
The memories we make,the times we had,
Will never fade away.

<3 Incendiary

So,those in cabal better come back before it’s gone.

MapleSAP Special: Magicians03

MAPLE::SAP
Special: Magicians
Part 3: Magic Security

As history shows, the Innisfailean magicians have had to fight to defend themselves from many enemies whom threatened their existence.
In the middle ages, the magicians were forced to fight the Shareneians in a series of bloody wars spanning a period of 250 years. They were forced to fight the Angel invadors and the hordes of Balrogs whom threatened to destroy Ellinia.
From the 1700’s on, the magicians had to fight the Justice Arrow, and in the Maple War, they fought off the Sino Army.

At present, magicians have numerous enemies who would threaten to attack if Ellinia wasn’t as well guarded as it is today. The Justice Arrow maintains ongoing operations against magicians throughout Victoria, and would be more than happy to see the city of Ellinia burn.

Today, the city is guarded by a 5000+ member force called the Cor Caomhnoir Asarli or the CCA. The CCA is Ellinia’s security and police force dedicated to protecting the region and its population. The CCA employs thousands of high level magicians who guard the city 24/7 on rotating shifts. The CCA’s top and most brutal archmages have demonstrated their powers again and again, and work as a powerful deterrent. The CCA’s show of force deterrs a would be enemy such as the Justice Arrow from attacking. The theory behind this is mutually assured destruction; Should the enemy attack Ellinia or any other major magician town, the CCA will deliver an equal or greater blow to the enemy. The archmages who are level 175 or higher are capable of destroying entire villages in short time.

The magicians continually show their force in southeast Victoria in an area called Ciemoor which lies between the borders of Ellinia and Henesys territories. Here, archmages exercise their fearsome powers, levelling trees and mock buildings in test runs, showing off their power again and again to the JA.
The Justice Arrow’s leaders have talked in the past about a war on the magicians; should this happen, the elite members of the CCA are prepared to obliterate Henesys, along with its population as a last resort.

Over the years, the CCA conducts tests of power among its soldiers at various points in eastern Victoria.
The magicians not only hone their elemental skills, but also developed secondary magic weapons.
One such weapon, known as a firebomb is the scariest weapon produced by the FP archmages.
The first firebomb was detonated over the sea. The fireball expanded until it was 3.1 miles accross. An old Innisfalean ship which was moored to the old seaport for centuries, was also used in the firebomb test. The searing hot fireball literall caused the ship to explode into flaming pieces during the test. The firebomb is the CCA’s version of the new massive arrowbombs bow masters produced in 1987.

The ice archmages have also built their own line of deadly weapons.
Known as the Zero, this bomb doesn’t release energy, but absorbs it. After the ice-coated ball explodes, a magic powered chemical reaction goes off, causing the weapon to absorb heat (and produce cold). As the weapon collects heat, temperatures within 60-100 feet drop to over a hundred below zero. The most successful Zero, tested in 2001 on the coast of Victoria plunged temperatures to minus 200*C. At this temperature, the air we breathe quickly changes to liquid producing a vacuum pocket and furious winds. The water became solid rock ice, showered by a rain of lethal liquid nitrogen and oxygen. Other gases will condense into supercooled liquids and rain down and solidify on the frozen ground. Caught within the blast of a Zero, one will no longer breathe and will die of hypoxia (altitude or thin-air sickness), and hypothermia within seconds. Animals and fish caught in the blast area suffered a nasty death- Having been suddenly frozen in a split second, every cell in a body shatters as the water in the cells expand, causing the cell to exlode. Hemorhage was all that was left of the marine life in the test site.

Lightning mages have also found ways to destroy a human system with their power. An electrical overload causes brain death, and total neural failure, killing the victim.

The politcal landscape in Victoria, including intervention from the Maple capital, Orbis has also kept Henesys and Ellinia at bay and prevented them from fighting eachother. But as the JA becomes increasingly agressive, experts warn it is only a matter of time before the two cities take their forces and got at it.

MMOTales 2nd year Anniversary

Well everyone, MMOTales enters its second year alive.

And remember the last blog congratulating MMOTales on its birthday? Yah, that one was actually in paragraph fom. Unfortunately, my writing skills has since depleted, and now I’m left with double spacing

So yeah, last year, we were devastated with the loss of many MMOTers who thankfully returned to MMOT to enlighten us with their time off. We also happened to enter the Muffin and Waffle craze that swept the Interwebz by storm.

This year, we’ve been hit with the Super Smash Brothers Brawl crave, and Mabinogi turning into a new addiction. But, we have also been hit with the loss of Mipsacri. But, she returned months later, her mod powers gone. MMOT has somehow managed to stay afloat without a Mod to supervise. Let’s hope that we can make it past Year 2.

Many have been Rickrolled, many have been duckrolled. But everyday, the users of MMOT have always been MMOTrolled.

MMOTrolled, you say?

What’s that?

Well, I’ll show you.

Well, that wraps up this super short birthday blog. Come on everyone, let’s celebrate like crazy animal people!

OH YEAH, remember to like the blog to show your support.

CAPTAIN, YOU BETTER READ THIS BLOG. STOP LURKING AND POST SOMETHING.

-coughBogdancough-

Softnyx

Since there isn’t a Rakion category, I’m putting this under Gunbound. Rakion isn’t even technically a MMO, for reasons I don’t exactly understand, but it’s still a multiplayer online game. And that’s good enough for me. If it isn’t good for you, go be emo in Underground Altar or something.

Anyway, onto the blog.

Nexon is to MS/Mabinogi as Softnyx is to Gunbound/Rakion.
Comprenden?

So I shall proceed to… talk about Softnyx.

1) Grammar

That’s right – whenever you talk about a Korean game company, the first thing you absolutely must do is pick on their grammar. Right?
…okay, maybe not, but I’m going to anyway.

Softnyx said: “Extream Action RAKION
Battle where enemies and allies can’t be distinguished..
Extravagant Art of sowrd collide with mystic Magic!!!
Only thing that protect yourself from the sharp edges of the battle is only a sword.
The one that trust in his own self and the sword he carries will dominate the enemy and achieve victory.
Don’t be distracted even for a second! Sharp edge of enemy’s sword is aimed toward your heart!

Extreme striking sensation that controls all of your senses – R.A.K.I.O.N
Experience the New World Now!

Yours Sincerely, Softnyx co. Ltd.”

Three words: see for yourself.

What gets me is that they misspell a word (namely, sowrd and extream) and then go on to spell the same word correctly later.

The grammar in-game is a little bit better, but some of the in-game notices have… strange wording (I have a hunch that they would be correct Korean syntax).

As for Nexon’s grammar…

Nexon said: “Nexon Game Cards are now available in 7-Eleven, Shoppers Drug Mart, and Future Shop across Canada! In the U.S., check out Target, CVS, Rite Aid, Best Buy, Duane Reade, and 7-Eleven for your Nexon Game Cards!”

No way, Nexon actually did something correctly?
Well, it is Nexon America we’re talking about here. They have plenty of native English speakers working for them, right?

2) Bugs and Hackers

Oh boy.

I’ve never played Gunbound, but Rakion is FULL of glitches and the like. It’s also full of hackers. Softnyx does next to nothing about hackers, at least in my knowledge; it just lets us rely on the kick system to boot them from games. Whee.
At the very least, the kick system does get rid of them (though some hackers have anti-kick). It isn’t perfect though – sometimes the hacker IS the game master, and sometimes the hacker is on the game master’s team and the master chooses to take advantage of it for free EXP, money, and wins.
Overall though, hackers have less of a negative effect on a game like Rakion in the first place, since you can just leave and join/make another game if you must.

3) Promises?

Recently I received this email from Softnyx.
Remind you of anything of Nexon’s? Oh yeah… this.

Though they’re about different issues, the basic idea is strikingly similar. Isn’t it?

Now, I’m sincerely hoping that Softnyx actually does do something about this, as that would put it much further than Nexon (who after three weeks still haven’t offered any compensation…) in my eyes.

4) Website URL

This isn’t really an issue, but just something I found slightly amusing.

MapleStory’s website is <http://maplestory.nexon.net>
Rakion’s website is <http://rakion.softnyx.net>

Lol.

5) Events

This is Rakion’s newest event:

We plan to prepare brand new event continuously and we will try our best for joyful event!

Thank your

Sincerly,

Softnyx Co., Ltd”

(Yay, more bad grammar!)

The thing about this event is that the awards are given to everyone, and they are RANDOM items – including Power User items (which you can only buy if you’re a Power User, which you pay real money for) and I believe Cash items too. Some of them are trash, but some are actually pretty nice.

What’s the closest Nexon has gone to giving out free cash?

The allowance thing? Even if you logged in every day, you would barely get enough to buy one cheap item.
They had a few contests that gave Maple Point awards. Contests that… 20 people won, out of several million players.

So that is something Softnyx wins, even if most of the prize stuff is junk.

6) Pure awesomeness

MapleStory is a great insomnia cure. If I can’t sleep, I can log onto MS, and I’ll want to go to bed after just a few minutes of monotonous grinding.
Rakion is a great coffee substitute. I’ve stayed up till 7 AM playing Rakion without a drop of caffeine. I ended up sleeping till 2-3 in the afternoon, though.

7) PC

Rakion is racist, sexist, and every other -ist out there.

Except for equips, all swordsmen look the same.
So do all blacksmiths (who are extremely fat), all archers (who are all white, blonde, and female), all ninjas (also all female, but they have short hair so if you ignore the boobs it’s less obvious), and all mages (aka midgets).

8) What’s with the company names?

Nexon.
Softnyx.

Is X a popular letter or something?

9) Storyline? What’s a storyline?

Softnyx said: “Once upon a time, there was a time when monsters ruled over the world and human
beings were merely a small community. White Dragons, the king of the monsters,
worried about the world becoming deserted and despaired due to the exceeding
number of monsters. Therefore, they kept the balance between the monsters by
waking up from their hibernation and eliminating any monster species that threatened to
take over the world by overpopulating themselves.

However, one day, humans tried to take over the world by learning and training
themselves with higher level of knowledge and magic than the monsters. The White
Dragons started to wake up from their hibernation slowly, and the King of the humans,
Zadro, tried to make truce with the White Dragons, but realized that it was out of his
abilities to do so. Therefore Zadro tried to slow, or even to stop the attacks from the
Dragons by actually going to their castle. The White Dragons watched the humans in
interest because unlike monsters, they tried to reach an agreement through
compromising, and they had the bravery that risked even their own lives.

Finally the White Dragons decided to give the humans another 500 years and went back
to hibernation. The leaders of the Dragons transformed their form of life to something
else and soared into the sky with traces of glitter behind them. The remaining White
Dragons told Zadro: ‘The leaders are always connected with this world, but will only
watch and never come back on their own will. They will certainly keep their promise, but
can you? Our waiting may bear a disaster, not mercy.’

Zadro announced this to all humans but the tales of the white dragon faded from
everyone’s mind even before two centuries had passed.”

This is about all we ever get to know about why we slaughter each other for kills all day.

It makes even less sense than MapleStory, if that’s at all possible

10) Summary

In this day and age, where Nexon’s games are becoming ever more popular, and Rakion is all but dead…
Does Softnyx suck? In some aspects, yes.
Does it suck more than Nexon? Subjective, but I wouldn’t say so. It does do some things right, after all.
Is Rakion worth playing? Most people seem to think no nowadays.
…but I like it 😡

‘n yeah. Pointless blog. My main point in all this was really just (1), which was the grammar but one thing kinda lead to another.

The sky fades from russet as I conclude.

maple experiences

i have played maple story since october of 2007. I have a level 57 warrior right now. My level 57 is my main.

I started playing maplestory, and i noticed that by level 10 the game was addicting. I had had an account since september, but i didn’t know that you had to download maplestory. then i started seeing commercails for maplestory, and i thought it was really cool and i said taht u had to download it, and i was like, OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, then i got really excited and i didn’t even bother asking my stepdad if i could download it. so i downloaded it and he noticed but he really didn’t care. after about level 7 my brother kept bothering me that he wanted to play too. at the time we had to share 1 computer. so when he got home it was basically chaos. lots of fights and blood. overall i always win cuse im 2 years older than him.

i had noticed that the game was addicting before i even knew what was beyond maple island, i had a long jouryney ahead of me. i decided that i wanted to be a warrior because MEN ARE WARRIORS!!!!! WARRIORS FTW!!!!
back to the story …..
i had only raised str in the beginning so by level 35 i only had 25 dex. then i noticed that i needed dex to hit things. i couldnt hit jr. neckis till level 45. boy, i was stupid. i didn’t even know of the fm until level 36. this is still my first character and i havent been hacked ever because my pass is impossible to figure out.
at about level 20 my older brother wanted to play too. jeez, what an nx whore he is. he got 2 double exp cards and by i was level 50 he was a higher level than me, even though i started playing 2 months before he did. he glitch pqs all the time i glitch too but not half as much, he reached sniper. i was jelous, but now i don’t care i want to be a dragon knight.

i plan to play until my early 20s
i am 12 right now

Gabrielle Aries – Sagittarius’ partner, has a bombing technique that can destroy anything in a few kilometer’s range. She is apparently 17 and likes strawberry ice cream, and was exploited as a deadly weapon in her early age.

Leo – Pod’s um, friend? Is very sarcastic and calm. Has a deep voice, nothing more is known about him, (Same with almost any character).

Natalie – A curious small child Apostle, whom is very full of questions. She somewhat takes Pod’s powers lightly.

Mysterious member that never talks – A silent person that never talks, but listens to everything. Is very mysterious.

Apostle’s Creed Chapter Seven: Merciless Combat

Location: Sokoro City; Southern Entrance
2020, May 01

“Take that, bas****s!” Aries grinned, boasting her satisfaction.

Cryo’s world seemed to end as the echoing explosion seemed to sing a requiem for the three new citizens of after-life. Cryo’s insignificant, uncreative reality seemed to abrade away as the sound of the explosion reverberated in his mind. Shura was the only true friend in his life, probably the only one he trusted, his family being an exception. Now she lies with the debris, also, the battle was done for, since the captain and half of their fighting force blew up.

The other two members of Team Older seemed much shocked like they were about to fall in a coma. The other two in team Younger must’ve have been very important to them.

”The only thing you ever wanted in your life is now gone. Now it is time for you to take everything,” a voice announced in his mind.

“What! Not you again! Stay away! Ah!” Cryo screamed, clutching his head, the other two taken by surprise, stared at him.

“Alan! Calm down!” Reganus shouted, and tried to hold him still.

”You have all the right to be furious, my dear host Kazura, now use our powers to destroy what you hate!” his inside voice called.

“AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!

Cryo shrieked and grasped his temples tightly as his irises began to deform into a shape of a crimson blade, and his eyes turning into deep tar pits where white can never protrude. A suspicious and unapproachable burning aura began to leak out of him.

“Cryo! Now’s not the time!” Reganus tried to calm him down, but Cryo pushed him out of the helicopter with brute strength.

“Holy **** . . .” Reganus muttered, as he looked shocked and dropped, falling rapidly on to the terrain like a heavy boulder.

“Traus, you packed a parachute, remember!” Suri called.

Suddenly, a white quadrilateral with a deep blue ‘Z’ on it appeared where Reganus fell, thank goodness.

”CRYYYOOOOOOOO!”

A really familiar voice scolded.

“Are you whacked in the head or something? I told you! We don’t die easily, like Reganus, I packed a parachute as well, and we jumped off just in time. Sano has one too, Hope is just clinging onto my legs right now, heh, so calm down!” it was Shura.

“Thank goodness! Now that’s what we expect of the field commander,” Mr. Sanong shouted with joy, in the HQ.

Cryo’s irises morphed into a black blob, then casually returned to normal state. The despicable aura had disappeared moments ago.

He let out a sigh of immense pain and relief, then fell powerlessly on his seat.

“Team older, everyone except Suri fight on the ground!” a voice in the speaker ordered.

As the helicopter safely landed on the empty streets, a nervous Cryo sluggishly marched out.

“Sorry, I lost control . . .” Cryo sheepishly apologized.

“Don’t mention it, it was an um, an unusual experience, after all, we’re all safe,” Reganus laughed.

“Don’t worry about what happened and focus yourself on ‘him’, if you’re careless, you might lose your life,” the commander warned, advising them. The ambiance of the city seemed to drop into a heavy, life and death situation-like mood.

From the helicopter in midair, Suri wordlessly observed the enemy. The heartless android seemed very familiar, it definitely existed somewhere in her memories, which most she couldn’t recall. She had a really bad feeling about this.

Cryo and Reganus faced Sagittarius, in the middle of the road, the only thing separating them was a thick blockade line of automobiles. Endlessly grinning in the stalemate, the android snapped his fingers, and much to their amazement, the hundreds of metallic blobs surrounding him transformed into arachnid-like machines that resembled the size of goats.

Reganus and Cryo’s jaws dropped, as myriads of crimson quivers were fired from the combat machines, heading straight for them.

When Team Younger was forced onto ground, they began taking action. Loud barrages of sniper fire echoed off the streets, every single one hitting their targets, yet bouncing off like simple rubber balls. Aqua-green light materialized and gathered in front of the ‘eye’ symbol in the middle of Aries’ defensive, continuously forming into a bigger, better, and stronger looking sphere by every second.

“Sano, concentrate your mana into your attacks, they said before, Aries has armor harder than a handful of tanks combined!” Shura reminded.

“I said before, dammit! I don’t believe in that ‘mana’ or any other occult stuff!” he screamed back in reply, continuously shooting at Aries, who was floating still in the middle of air.

“Stop, you’re wasting bullets!” Shura scolded, as a few dozens of custom-made paper spider-mines paused on rooftops, waiting for the enemy to get in range.

“You’re the only one right now that has his enemy in range, so listen to what I say! Everyone’s lives depend on it!” Shura screamed, furious.

“I told you, I can do this with my skills alone!” he bragged, but inside, he was unsure, he had never fought an enemy like this before.

“Listen to Shura, depend on your Maple Spirit!” Mr. Chugo ordered.

“Disgusting, what have you been doing until now mindlessly indulging yourselves? Unlike you, I’ve worked very hard to reach Fourth Job, you know. Now you can pay for your sloth!” Aries spat, as the magnificent aqua-green energy sphere ceased its evolution and dropped onto the ground.

”This is god’s retribution to you sinners,”

Dozens of new, painstakingly erected skyscrapers were annihilated, razed to the ground and washed away by the blow. Cars, buildings, the pavement, establishments, everything in a few kilometers’ range were totally devastated, ‘twas worthy of being called a god’s wrath.

A crater had formed, Aries floated above the most declined point of it, everything reduced to crumbled dirt. After the smoke had cleared, three survivors were noticeable. Team Younger had regrouped and evaded the blast.

“Damn, what a destructive power. See? This is what happens if you give an opponent a chance to attack!” Shura yelled, a cold sweat dripping from her back.

“Impressive,” Aries thought. “She deflected the blast with a stronger explosion, heading straight,”

“I’ve used all I had, now I’m all out. Good thing we were out of range of the attack. My supplies are few, the next time she does that, we’re done for,” Shura gulped.

”Unlock all of the entrances and switch off all the defensives, it would be hard for my plans to proceed, after all, Sokoro is a major refugee city,”

The pipes creaked and dripped and the lights flickered and dimmed as Nova strode through the corridor, coming into sight range of a guard.

“Oh, it’s just you, Ms. Zerra,” the guard said, lowering his weapon and guard.

“You need something? It’s dangerous you know,” the guard beside him warned.

“I need you and your friends to die,” Nova muttered, the guards shocked, looking into her grey, foggy eyes, which was once pure as the blue sea. A grim presence locked all benevolence from her mind and eyes. In a split second, shooting sounds spread through the corridor, blood sprayed everywhere, the two guards lay cold on the ground, and Nova had disappeared.

Under the shallow trenches of cars, the two evaded enemy projectiles. The barrage was so heavy that the two couldn’t properly see the sunset that took place in the sky.

“Suri! Faster! Shut off the robots in your range!” Reganus roared, as he and Cryo ran under another car as the previous once was reduced into nothing but scrap metal.

“I’m on it,” she replied, as she ordered a tiny, satellite-like mechanism to hover over the battle machines, which emitted a strange wave that ceased their movements.

“Never expected the opponent to fight with machines,” Suri deviously grinned, as it was her field.

“Hurry! Damn luck we ended up in a traffic jam, or else we would have much holes in us as beehives!” Reganus roared in the havoc.

The number of crimson quivers had diminished, and Reganus peeked gradually, and saw most had fallen obsolete on the road.

“Our chance!” he shouted.

Reganus stood up and pressed the trigger of his machine gun. Empty shells dropped onto the ground, as one by one, the remaining battle machines fell, soon leaving only Sagittarius untouched.

“The hell?” Reganus muttered, surprised that his attacks combined with the energy of his Maple Spirit had no effect against Sagittarius.

“Take this!” Cryo sprinted towards Sagittarius, aiming for his head with the sword. Instead, what he hit was a sapphire blue triangle, reflecting his strike.

”A shield?” Cryo gasped.

“No! It’s a rotating blade; think of it as an electric chainsaw, except a countless times deadly combined with mana, if you didn’t have mana in your sword, it would have been simply shattered,” Shura informed, using her communicator.

Cryo noticed Sagittarius had another chainsaw in his hand, in the shape of a circle and attached by a rod to his hand.

They engaged in melee combat, each throwing devastating blows, which made sparks, fly everywhere. Suddenly, bullets flew from the back, aiming for Cryo, by instinct; he turned around, seeing that nothing was there, the bullets disappearing. Sagittarius, not ignoring the chance, slashed Cryo, leaving a severe, deep cut in his cheek, almost slicing off half of his head.

“The hell was that, a illusion?” Cryo stepped back, raising his guard higher than before.

“No, it’s a hologram. There are some devices back there. Concentrate on the fight, ignore unusual things, Sagittarius can’t run fast as you, and there’s no way we’ll betray you, so don’t worry,” Suri reported, from the helicopter.

“I can’t move faster than him? That’s bullsh**,” Sagittarius grinned, and released his metallic wings.

“Guess playtime’s over, now you can die,” he laughed, and the wing tore into a million pieces of shrapnel and was furiously fired at Cryo.

Cryo screamed as he tried to parry them all, but thousands of scratches appeared in the blink of an eye, then sounds of muscle tearing and bone shattering were heard, Cryo fell on all fours, heavily panting, coughing blood from his mouth.

“It would take too long to kill everyone with just us two, I brought some of my subordinates, they’re coming right now. Oh yeah, you killed one of them before, remember? Octavius or whatever his name was? He was just one of my experiments, a formidable one, except he hadn’t been ‘adjusted’ by yet,” Sagittarius spoke.

. . . .

“Commander! Enemies are coming through the open gates, our defenses obsolete! We just checked in the defense mechanism department, everyone’s been killed and everything’s been shut off! We can’t do anything! And what’s worse is that there is no evidence of anyone doing this!” someone reported, as pictures of a few hundred tall, muscular men in black armor and wild, spiky hair, a face full of scars, and wry grins marched through the streets on the screens. They looked very similar to Octavius.

“Let the military fight them, since they aren’t Apostles, soldiers should be fine,” the Commander ordered.

. . . .

“Type ‘J’ BMH are incomparable to these new type ‘K’ B-MUMH. While the ‘J’ type is only genetically modified, the ‘K’ type is both biologically and mechanically modified. They do not have hereditary fire-manipulating skills like Octavius. Well he’s a special one. But their modification means that they’re unstoppable by normal abilities. The military is useless, you will all fall, and die! Even if you manage to beat us somehow, all inhabitants you are trying to protect will be killed!” Sagittarius roared maniacally, extracting all the hope from Sokoro.

“We’ll never give up!” Reganus cried, charging at Sagittarius, mercilessly firing at him. Countless pieces of titanium enveloped around him, deflecting all of the attacks.

“How, wasn’t that the shrapnel wing weapon he just used?” Reganus thought, pausing for a moment.

“These wings are multipurpose, they have a pattern of breaking and a magnetic core, so it’s easy to break and merge countless times,” he proudly boasted, and eight, skinny metallic arms protruded out of his back, tearing his shirt apart. All of them had a rotating chainsaw in their hands, ready to tear things apart.

“Finally getting serious, eh?” Suri muttered, unheard from everyone.

“Time to bring out my secret weapon,”
