How a Calamity Necromancer Retires - Chapter 149
How a Calamity Necromancer Retires chapter 149
100 skeletons line up in an orderly fashion and march somewhere.
As the advancing skeleton troops moved forward, the land shook with tremendous vibrations, but the skeleton troops without rationality simply marched and advanced according to the algorithm.
The skeleton troops advancing like that were heading to the middle of the Mongolian steppe.
There, a huge meat golem was waving its arms in all directions and smashing skeletons, and around it, skeleton bones that had already been smashed were scattered everywhere.
and how long has it been
The meat golem that destroyed the last skeleton it was dealing with let out a victory roar.
But that roar was short-lived.
When the advancing skeleton unit entered the meat golem’s monitoring area, the meat golem’s head turned toward the skeleton unit, and the skeleton unit that saw it spread out in all directions.
Thus, the battle between the Meat Golem and the Skeleton unit started again as soon as the battle was over.
It was precisely the 24th battle that took place after the Chinese government accepted the offer.
* * *
An employee who was checking the scene with a drone told a Chinese government official.
“Two grade A, five grade B. And C grade… … .”
That’s what the staff member who was listing the skeleton composition of the unit that had just been destroyed said.
“All in all, 260 billion, roughly US$200 million. Here’s your receipt.”
A de facto bill handed to the Chinese government, which promised to compensate for the skeletons consumed under the contract with me.
Then, a Chinese government diplomat said with tears in his eyes.
“Another $200 million… … .”
The diplomat looked at me and said.
“Chairman, can’t you slow down the consumption? Like reducing sending 100 to 50.”
At those words, I, who was making a skeleton at the same time as checking the site, said with a sad expression.
“I had to maintain that size for him to recognize me as an enemy. Any further reduction here will reduce the attraction effect.”
“Ha, but the president.”
said the diplomat almost begging.
“Anyway, burning $200 million in three hours isn’t too much.”
The currently deployed units were spread out and focused on taking as much time as possible, enduring an average of 3 hours per unit.
“It’s not too much. Honestly, even this much is a good thing?”
At least, the meat golem was weakened and there was no wide-area attack skill, so it was this much, because originally, the lasting time would have been much shorter than this.
I looked at the diplomat and said.
“Or, like a few days ago, try your hand at it.”
I counter-threatening to give money to a high-ranking Chinese politician, but of course the Chinese government did not readily accept my proposal.
I wasn’t sure if Meat Golem was really as strong as I said, and it’s coming towards China now, but I didn’t know when it would turn again.
But just in time, a famous SS-class Awakener in China said that if he had the ability to become a giant, he would be able to withstand it to some extent even if he faced that monster, and he would directly verify whether it was really that strong. gave it
An SS-class Awakener who proudly set out to face the Meat Golem with his guild members.
And the results were disastrous.
The SS-class Awakener grew up with a gigantic body and confronted the Meat Golem head-on, but that was defeat.
For a meat golem like that, a big enemy was just an easy prey with plenty of places to grab and hit.
The SS-class Awakener still endured quite a bit, but in the end, one arm was caught by the Meat Golem and was beaten into a gigantic state without being able to escape and died as it was.
In the meantime, when the frightened guild members fled in the direction of China, the Meat Golem hunted them down and followed them.
When the situation came to this, the embarrassed Chinese government launched a large amount of missiles into the Mongolian grasslands, a foreign territory, but the meat golems stood firm even in the missile bombardment. Let’s throw it away and rush towards China in earnest. Eventually, the Chinese government asked me for help and accepted the offer.
“No, of course I don’t know. The fact that Chairman Han is working hard for China. But the already precarious Chinese economy is on the verge of fainting.”
I was holding on somehow even in the financial crisis situation, but the news that Meat Golem was heading to China plunged all at once, and now I am being paid compensation in addition to the support money.
Of course it would taste like dying.
But isn’t there a way?
“Then, President, if that can’t be helped, can we know when the operation being prepared will be completed?”
It’s been 3 days since I lasted 2,400 skeletons.
Originally, there were two days left until the minimum deadline I planned for, the 5th.
‘Should I wait a little longer?’
China may be dying, but in fact, I was making significant financial gains even in the midst of this.
Because the amount set as compensation was more expensive than the cost of the skeleton being consumed.
In addition, the amount of consumption is less than I expected, and in addition to that, I am making and replenishing the consumed skeleton at the same time as receiving support from China to make a skeleton skeleton.
‘Honestly, 5 days is too tight. The more I endure, the more perfect the plan will be.’
The 5th was the story when the number of corkscrew skeletons was reduced and the power was lowered, considering the weakening of the meat golem.
However, if the operation fails after such a tight formation, it will take much longer to restore it, so it is better to be prepared.
After all, China pays for it.
I thought about it for a while and said.
They are burning an average of 2 trillion won a day, so 20 trillion won in compensation in 10 days.
In addition to the compensation, it is not unreasonable for the diplomat to be surprised as the cost of producing the corkscrew skeleton is being supported separately.
“Joe, can’t it be sooner?”
“Then what if I fail and my skeleton is wiped out? Then it will take not ten days, but a month more?”
“Ha, but… but… … !”
A diplomat who keeps saying something but has no alternative, but repeats it indefinitely.
Anyway, the situation in China seems to be serious.
‘It would be difficult if the money line was cut off.’
I thought about it for a while and said.
“Take good care of your hair. Isn’t the cost of artificial water purification one of the most subsidies now? Wouldn’t it be possible to save a lot of money if the Chinese government calls it a national crisis and encourages the people to voluntarily participate in it and make artificial water for free? China is good at that.”
At those words, the diplomat opened his eyes wide.
“That’s a good way!”
“It would cost a lot less money than now if we just order government officials to load it onto a truck at an energy purchase booth and collect it for free from all directions. Besides, is there a way that only the Chinese government has to pay? Is China the only border with Mongolia?”
“Even just spreading rumors to Russia would be a direct hit. What would Russia do if we heard rumors that China couldn’t afford the amount of subsidy and asked Chairman Han Ji-hyeok to guide the monster to Russia?”
“You’ll notice, it’s a message that if you don’t help quickly, you might really do something.”
“answer. Then wouldn’t Russia give us some support? Because I would hope more than anyone else that it would somehow be resolved on the Chinese line.”
“Should I even give you advice on this?”
“I’ll report right up there.”
This will hold up for a while longer.
I thought as I immersed myself in making the skeleton again.
‘Earning money and making skeletons with other people’s money. Good, good.’
* * *
China, which issued a national emergency and supplied large quantities of artificial water purified by extracting free energy from its 1.4 billion population, and secretly threatened Russia with my advice to obtain subsidies.
Of course, all that money was put into my skeleton production, and after 10 days, my plan was finally completed.
I made 100 corkscrew skeletons for each of the 10 teams in the league, and although I lost half of the 15,000 undead corps over time, I made an additional 1,000 in the meantime to reinforce my strength.
After completing all the preparations, I led all the skeletons and moved toward the meat golem with the players.
and how long has it been
I see a meat golem coming towards me from afar.
I told the leader of one of the league teams to take the lead.
“Are you ready?”
“Please prepare the next team right away.”
The ordering of the teams was, of course, because each team had a different algorithm, so if several teams attacked at the same time, the skeletons would get tangled together, which would have the opposite effect.
“If the team in front loses, the next team, and the next team, push on without a break. Then, when a nucleus is found or a gap is found, my skeletons and I rush in at once to finish it off. Simple, right?”
I looked at the players and said.
“Anyway, I will guarantee your lives no matter what, so please do your best.”
“All right! President!”
That’s when everything was ready.
A meat golem in the distance spots us and stomps towards us.
Then, the vanguard team and their upgraded version of 100 corkscrew skeletons come to the fore.
The skeleton of the vanguard team that came to the fore like that had a very bizarre appearance.
A corkscrew skeleton with six arms attached to both arms, one pair on the waist and one pair on the pelvis.
The vanguard team’s strategy was to use four of those arms to cling to the legs of a giant meat golem, and use the other two arms to slash, not cut, with a specially designed serrated sword.
“I’m going to start slicing right after putting in aggro!”
At the leader’s words, a small number of skeletons optimized for speed stepped forward to distract the meat golem’s vision, and in the meantime, 6-armed spiky skeletons charged from all sides, clung to the meat golem’s legs, and sliced the flesh with saw blades. Start.
Then, the meat golem tries to hit its leg with its arm as if it were trying to catch an annoying fly, and the six-armed skeleton equipped with an instant evasion algorithm stops working (?) and climbs up the meat golem’s leg to evade the attack.
“It looks like a spider.”
At my words, the leader nodded and said.
“you’re right. It was inspired by the spider man. When an attack comes in, it crawls on its legs like a bug to avoid it. Then you keep writing, faster than you can reproduce it.”
It’s a useless method unless it’s a meat golem, but that’s why it’s even better.
That meat golem had never encountered that type of enemy before, and as such, I probably wouldn’t have dealt with that type of attack either.
The skeletons of the corkscrew crawling on their legs, avoiding attacks, and then slicing and slicing.
I said with my eyes shining.
“good. Let’s just go like this!”
Suddenly, the meat golem jumped high into the sky and landed on the ground kneeling.
Then, let alone the skeleton on the leg side that touched the ground, even the skeleton on the calf side was caught between the leg and the torso and smashed.
The leader said with a puzzled expression.
“Eh, this is how you deal with it?”
Are there any algorithms like that?
It’s been a long time since I made it, so it’s a meat golem with an algorithm that I can’t remember.
I muttered in a low voice.
“… Han Ji-hyeok, isn’t this bastard quite right?”
When did you make something like that again?
Could it be that it was made as a countermeasure for the soldiers of the Demon King’s Army clinging to their legs?
I gritted my teeth and said.
how to say
Do you feel like you were beaten by the past me?
In any case, the meat golem, which destroyed a large number of skeletons, intensively attacked the remaining skeleton skeletons one by one.
“This won’t work.”
Due to losing too many skeletons at once, the remaining skeletons are so busy avoiding the meat golem attack that they can’t properly execute the slicing attack.
“The vanguard team retreats. Join the next team.”
In the end, when the vanguard team decided to retreat, the vanguard team leader said with a sullen expression.
“no. Well done.”
I pointed to the meat golem legs and said.
“Thanks to that, my legs turned into rags. It will take time to regenerate, especially since it was torn with a saw blade. In other words, the damage was done to him.”
You can’t be full from the first drink.
The important thing is how much damage you did to the meat golem.
In that respect, the vanguard team did well enough.
I couldn’t cut off the legs, which are the core of movement, but I made them out of rags.
“And we still have nine teams and my skeletons left. If you keep accumulating damage like this, you will be able to defeat it!”
Although it regenerates, the meat golem will continue to weaken as magic and morale continue to be consumed while regenerating.
“ruler! Let’s keep going!”
* * *
The meat golem that destroyed the corkscrew skeleton let out a huge roar.
But that roar only excites me more.
“It was good.”
The reason Meat Golem emits a roar is to instill fear in its enemies.
That’s why there were only two cases where the meat golem let out a roar.
When you win and show it off to your enemies… … .
“Isn’t this a bit dangerous?”
In a dangerous situation like now, to create a variable by somehow scaring the enemy.
And as if to prove it, almost all of the legs severed by the vanguard team were regenerated, but the appearance of the meat golem, which accumulated damage all over the body from the attacks of the teams that continued after that, was spectacle.
With arms tattered by the exploding skeleton and torn flesh scattered all over the place from the attack of the team that came with the strategy of shoveling into the flesh, the Meat Golem is truly a meat golem.
“Still strong, really strong.”
It made me think that if the meat golem hadn’t weakened as it passed through the gate, the plan I first conceived might have failed.
It’s because it’s still standing strong even after hundreds of S-class skeletons equipped with anti-meat golem-specific algorithms have attacked it.
“There are two teams left now, right?”
The remaining two teams are also put in sequentially, and then all power is mobilized to finish.
While the operation was proceeding smoothly, I suddenly received a call from Park In-gwi.
“Why are you busy now?”
– An unstable gate has appeared not far from there now!
I said frowning.
“Tell them to figure it out on their own.”
-Yeah, but the monsters that came out of there are said to be similar to the monsters from the Japanese SS-class gate that the president intervened in!
what are you talking about now
Another undead army appeared?
“Is there a video!?”
– We’ll send it right away!
After checking the video Park In-gwi sent me, I shook my head and said,
“Ah, I’m going crazy!”
As Park In-gwi said, the monster that came out of the unstable gate was my undead army.
That number is close to 2,000.
“Are the guerrillas mixed with death knights and arrogance?”
If these guys spread out in all directions, there will be massive damage.
“No, if it’s going to come out, come out all at once, why all of a sudden… uh?”
But when I think about it, something is strange.
“Apart from the timing of the summons, these guys… Are you being summoned around me?”
From nob le mtl dot com
Maybe these guys, even though they’ve been transformed into monsters with magical powers replaced, aren’t they only summoned around me for some reason?
As if coincidence repeats itself, isn’t it near me?
I was summoned from Japan, which is close to Korea, and this time, when I was staying in China for business, I was summoned from Mongolia, which is close to China. All of them are summoned only around me.
Connectivity between subspace and gate?
Or does it have something to do with my magic?
Anyway, I don’t know the exact reason, but one thing is for sure.
“… I am a total walking disaster.”
Judging from the examples so far, the undead army is being summoned around me.
However, it does not seem that some kind of will intervenes and does this on purpose.
If he had intended to use my undead legion to attack me, he would have sent them all at once, rather than sending them in small bursts like this.
“Whoa. Anyway, what about this?”
Judging from the composition, the guys that came out this time aren’t that strong.
However, since there are guerrillas, it is difficult to deal with them if they are scattered all over the place, so we have to surround them and annihilate them all.
Of course, that doesn’t matter.
Thanks to the additional preparations than originally planned, the meat golem is quite cornered, and it seems that it will be possible to deal with it even if 4,000 are removed.
The problem is directing.
“I can’t empty it here… … .”
But if we send only skeletons over there, the guerrillas will run away in all directions when cornered.
Then, I have to give instructions right away on the spot and organize everything clearly, but I, who has to command it, can’t empty this place.
After thinking about it for a while, I see the players waiting in the back after defeating the meat golem first.
If you think about it, it was one of my plans to have the players act like skeleton commanders later on.
That’s why we introduced large-scale group competitions.
Although he can’t touch the battle algorithm, if he controls the movement and attack of his troops, he will be able to fulfill his role as a commander.
“okay. There is only one way.”
I immediately reached out and connected the players’ consoles to my skeleton troops, built a new command system, and said:
“I’m running out of time, so I’ll explain quickly. I connected 60 skeletons to 70 people from 7 teams who have now retreated. And I changed some of the console buttons to attack and move functions.”
I took the console away from one of the bewildered players and started demonstrating it myself.
“If you control it like this?”
Then, 60 skeletons connected to this console start moving.
“And this button is Attack. And this is a stop attack.”
I returned the console to the player and said.
“Now, a group of new monsters have appeared not far away. We need your help to deal with them. Nothing difficult. As usual in group battles, command the skeletons and destroy all of them, and you’re done. Can you?”
“No, the situation here is urgent, but if you subtract that much… … .”
I said, interrupting the player.
“Just answer that. Can you do it or not? It is a matter of human life.”
Then the silent players spoke.
“That’s what I practiced every day as if I were eating. There are more of them, but you just have to move and attack, so it’s about this easy.”
I pointed in the direction where Seron’s undead army had appeared and said.
“ruler! Come on! Leave this to me and you will control the undead army and deal with the monsters yourself!”
