Not Reserved Post (chapter 22)
"And attack their weak spot for massive damage!"
You're assassins. Assassins generally kill people. What does King Louis keep you around for, serving hors d'oeuvres for afternoon tea?
Besides, I seem to recall them killing that poor soldier for no good reason in...chaper 19? The one with Lyam.
IT'S SHADOW THE EDGEHOG! Also, our last safe character.
It's kinda funny, since the tower's at least three stories up. I wonder if megaphones exist here.
Considering your stats, you should probably stick to words.
Speedy general becomes even speedier!
We got the inferior Silvans, but it should do its job well enough.
This chapter's gimmick: every unit, as part of an elite assassin's group, has Lethality. Including this guy. Do we have an iron rune? OF COURSE NOT! That'd make things too easy.
Liquid, aka the most broken prepromote ever, was recruited last chapter. Here, he gets to show off what he's got.
Did I mention he has Lethality too, for some unknown reason? Because he does. It's ridiculous.
When your peg knight has the same strength as speed, I suspect something is up.
Free money, unless someone drops it.
Operation Get The Fuck Away From Wo Dao Guy is a go.
The only other really threatening unit, aside from the boss, is quickly neutralized...
...with a crit and a more typical level.
Kevin's too slow to double the myrms and mercs and whatnot that attack him, so he's whittling them down one by one. The swordmaster is at the back of the queue.
Most of the stats you need. Good abomination.
Slightly less good abomination. Also starting to have trouble doubling anything, thanks in no small part to her shitty con (Lightning freaking weighs her down).
This is, like, Wan-tier level.
Aaaaand we're back to regularly scheduled crap. At least he got speed.
No crit, no silencer. Phew.
Next turn, Kevin chips for Liquid to get the kill in true Liquid fashion.
Kelik can use this, I guess?
Althares gets his last level. He'll be able to promote after this chapter, since the boss carries a droppable Fell Contract.
Anakin dances Zach for a...Wow. Ok then.
What did he dance him for? I want to nail this guy.
I know what you're thinking. Shut up.
First shot missed, but the second crit-killed...
Netting an ok level and a tome for Cia.
This also makes the boss start moving. Normally, I would play ring around the rosie and avoid the boss while I kill off the remaining enemies (since the chapter ends when the boss dies), but I kinda want to get this over with.
Zach ensures no Physic hijinks occur by one-shotting this guy as well.
And here he comes, walkin' down the street, singin' doo-wah diddy...
Ok, I'll stop.
Welcoming reception has been prepared.
No crit or level, but a promotion item I'll actually use is nice. And thus ends the chapter.
Not really. That Wo Dao swordmaster was probably the toughest, and he went down quick.
Quick, sure. Strong? I'll get back to you on that.
Shon has doubts, but actually, Shadow stayed behind. Because he's mentally unhinged, you know. Or something.
"I just wanted to be an astronaut or a firefighter when I grew up...".
How delightfully edgy.
No, no, I don't blame you in the slightest.
Yeah. Look at Cia.
And that's that!
