Nanomancer Reborn - I've Become A Snow Girl? - Chapter 1025: Mech Upgrade
Teleporting back to her room, Shiro spotted Nan Tian still sitting on his wheelchair while reading a book.
“How did it go?” He asked with a smile the moment he saw her come back.
“It went well. The runes managed to sync up pretty nicely and the output is actually higher than before. If three cores were 100% output, right now it’s working at 150% thanks to the runes. It managed to offset Isilia’s missing anchor and even improve it some more.” Shiro replied as Nan Tian nodded.
“That’s good then. It means we can revert everything back to what it was and even add more offensive and protective measures.”
“Yup. I’ve already added some more weapons enhanced with the new runes and more mechs. I’m working on improving a few blueprints in my mind and I’ll probably make the adjustments to the specialised mechs later today. If we can get everything up to date by the time the event starts, we should be able to sweep it without any problems.” Shiro chuckled.
“It’s a shame that I can’t exactly participate in this state though.” Nan Tian sighed as he looked down at the wheelchair.
“It’s fine. The fact that you fended off an attack by the Queen and even made it easy for me to eliminate her was helpful in the long run. It’s one less Queen on the battlefield and if she was sitting in the backlines summoning new units continuously then it would be quite annoying to deal with her. Just take this time to rest properly. Though I might need you to come with me since I won’t be able to fight for long.” Shiro shrugged as she sat down by the table.
Pulling out her tablet, she tapped it a few times as holograms of the mechs started to appear around her.
“What do you think of this idea? I’m planning on reinforcing the mech’s power core with a few runes so that they can also enter a berserk state like us. By doing so, I’ll be forcing all of the components to work to their limit and maybe even break. But the benefits are most likely worth it.” Shiro asked as Nan Tian thought for a moment.
“Perhaps you can make it so that it’s always in a berserk state rather than entering it so that the internals are pushed to the limit.” He suggested but Shiro shook her head.
“That’s pretty much just a full on upgrade. Unfortunately, to do so I’d have to redesign the blueprints completely to refit everything. That would take too long so adding a berserk module would be the better option with the timeframe we’re given. Plus, I also want to test out some more runes so that I can potentially stop time when the event starts.” Shiro replied as she waved her finger and the mech in front of her disassembled into thousands of tiny components.
Bringing up some stat sheets for their performances, Shiro started to add the berserk modules while looking at the upgrade this would bring when activating it.
However, just as she looked at the overall stats, she sat up straight in realisation.
“Hold up…” She muttered as she immediately started to type away at her keyboard.
“Is something wrong?” Nan Tian asked curiously.
“I wouldn’t say that something is wrong but rather if this is what I think it is then it might be something great.” Shiro smiled as simulations started to appear on the screen. While she could just simulate it in her mind, it was for Nan Tian’s benefit since she didn’t want to be distracted while calculating this.
Seeing the mech appear on the screen, Nan Tian fell silent as he watched with curiosity.
However, the next moment, he couldn’t help but widen his eyes.
“Yup. That’s a Throne World.” Shiro grinned as she noticed that with these parameters, it was similar to hers when she activated her own Throne World. Therefore, it was potentially possible to craft one manually using some runes.
“However, it is only possible when they enter the berserk like state since it barely reaches the minimum requirements once they do that. Otherwise they don’t have enough power to craft one. Though rather than a Throne World, this is more just a fancy isolated space. A mini domain.” Shiro shrugged as it didn’t give as many benefits as a proper Throne World would.
For example, even tens of these combined wouldn’t be able to match up to a proper Throne World but for her army troops, this was a good start.
“Unfortunately, it can only be installed on the Specialised Units and it requires just as much from the pilot as it would from the mech. If the pilot is untalented, no Throne World.” Shiro shrugged as Nan Tian placed his hand on his chin.
“In that case, are you able to refine the Throne World some more so that the talented ones are more powerful? Quantity is important but we can’t forget about Quality.” Nan Tian asked as Shiro nodded her head.
“I can infuse a little bit of my own Nanotech Throne World in there. It just makes it so that they have an unlimited armoury. Or at least that’s what it would feel like.” Shiro admitted.
“So do you want to focus on a few good Throne World rather than, to put it crudely, mass produced trash?” Nan Tian asked as Shiro nodded her head.
“That’s true. If they have even one person with a decent Throne World then not even the entire army armed with the basic one can stand up to them. With the time we have left, I’d say I can suit up 80% of the Specialised Unit with the manufactured Throne World. They’ll have to do some last minute training to learn how to use it though.” Shiro smiled.
“Then we should probably get a move on. I’ll come with you so that you don’t need to leave every 10 minutes.” Nan Tian chuckled.
“Perfect. It’s been a while since I trained the specialised units myself.” Shiro grinned as she immediately started construction on both the Berserk Modules along with the Throne World Modules.
Standing up, she wondered if she should change into something more appropriate for a demonic trainer.
“Say, what do you think about me wearing a military uniform with a large coat? To get into the role and everything.” Shiro joked as Nan Tian laughed.
“Perhaps. But I think you can probably stay with what you’ve always worn.”
“Hmm true. Maybe I just put some light armour on so that I look a little more intimidating.” Shiro muttered as she glanced down at her black dress.
Swiping her fingers, silver armour appeared around her waist as her crest could be seen adorned on the side. Some small shoulder armour along with a red scarf that trailed behind her slightly, Shiro created a chest piece and two arm bracers.
“Something like this should be good.” Shiro smiled as Nan Tian nodded his head.
Creating a sheath for Silvanis, Shiro created a mirror and nodded her head.
“Now that I think of it, isn’t this just cosplay?” Shiro asked.
“Perhaps. Though it’s not exactly cosplay since you are in a role of power.” Nan Tian replied.
“True… Well this should be fine regardless. Shall we go?” Shiro asked with a smile.
Nodding his head, Nan Tian watched as Shiro opened a portal.
Walking through the portal with Nan Tian, they found themselves in her office that she build in the military base. It overlooks the entire hanger and they could see the soldiers looking at the cranes in confusion since they were taking apart the mechs and adding new stuff in them.
Tapping the broadcasting mic, Shiro opened her mouth.
“Attention all specialised pilots. I want you to report to my office in five minutes.”
Hearing Shiro’s voice broadcasted through the hanger, Shiina and the other pilots looked up in surprise and saw Shiro standing in front of the window of her office.
Not counting the last time she had appeared under a disguise, Shiina understood that this was her first proper appearance in the military after several months.
She didn’t count her public appearance for the event of going to Vrish’ Lir since it was for the healers and alchemists rather than the military.
Regardless, now that she had made the announcement, Shiina wasn’t going to question it. She was sure that Shiro would explain everything once they arrived at her office.
Sitting in the office chair, Shiro watched as the specialised pilots entered one by one. There were a few recognisable faces such as Shiina, Oran, Akhess, Celeste and Glen while others were unfamiliar. Nan Tian had promoted those that he deemed worthy of the title but it was time to put that to the test.
“As you can see behind me, there are upgrades being created for your mechs. As specialised pilots, each of your mechs are unique in that they match your proficiencies. Shiina is a good example as she uses ice and her mech specialises in control with some points in attack power. The new upgrades are a berserk mode as well as a throne world. But before I let you in the upgraded mechs, we need a bit of training.” Shiro smiled as the five familiar faces paled the moment they heard that they’ll be training with her.
