V.48 Fate IV
It's been more than 20 minutes since the Droids started rampaging and yet there was no sign of any movement from the Sanctuary, and so Arc was forced to improvise if they didn't want to leave the Sanctuary all he has to do was force them to.
Leaving the city Arc and his group went directly to the Sanctuary which is only a few miles away from the city it was an extremely colossal tower surrounded by an artificial river, and the only thing that connects it to the city is a huge steel draw bridge.

It didn't take long for him to arrive at the gate to the Sanctuary, leaving the burning city behind during the night the Cathedral is like a huge bonfire that lights up the night sky, and everyone on the Sanctuary can see it.
The bridge Gate was protected by walls and regiments of Guards, all of them are armed to the teeth Arc was not surprised to see it after all their city is burning. Hundreds of templars lined up protecting the bridge gate mechanical construct can be seen behind them like giant Mechanical Idols. Dozens of them are lined up. Seeing it Arc smiles widens. "let's see how our 1-star droids fare against them," the 1-star droids only about 3 meters tall, smaller than the race called Chosen who was as big as Ganesh who was about 5 meters tall.
But the Droids who Arc calls terminators based on ancient old movies he saw when he was a child, his father loves to collect those old pre-war movies.
The Terminators are jet black in color, their whole body was made from nanomachines and can change form however they like and was able to manifest several weapons programmed from their cores.
A thousand Droids suddenly appeared in front of the Bridge Gate surprising all the guards and because Arc and his group are under stealth, nobody saw them.
Now alarmed immediately rang in the sanctuary, making those who were laughing at the burning city, almost choke on their saliva.
"What's going on? How come the alarm on the sanctuary is ringing?" after all since its founding the alarm of the Sanctuary only rang a few times, and the last it time rang was several hundred years ago. Many of them were not even born yet at that time. And so their cheerful attitude was replaced by confusions and curiosity.
all of them are former paladins they are not some helpless peasants, who among them doest know how to fight? To become a priest or high-ranking paladins they have to bathe in the blood of their enemies whether it was barbarians or beasts.
The Cardinals gather at the top of the tower along with the current Pope. in there they can see the situations on the outside, projectors screen displaying many events outside the Tower, they saw the City being attacked by a powerful group of droids and huge mechanical construct, of course, those constructs are the Celeste in their mechs.
The Guards outside was unable to get back into the city because of the influx of merchants trying to leave the city.
But despite seeing all that none of them are worried.
"Do we know who those constructs belong to?" said the pope who was covered from head to toes, not even his eyes can be seen.
"No your grace, this is the first time we see those constructs", said one of the Cardinals.
"Could it be a new construct from the Chosen?" Ask another.
Unlikely the Chosen have no reason to attack us since they are also relying on us.
"The only one I can think of are the Ancients," said another
"those Barbarians? Well, I guess they are the only one who has a real grudge against us."
"But I never heard of them developing this kind of technology."
"It's true that we called them Barbarians but their mechanical technologies are far above us," said another.
What they didn't mentions are the mechanical technologies they possessed were stolen from the so-called Barbarians.
"But that does not explain how they manage to get inside the city undetected, and the fact they suddenly appeared in front of the bridge gate remains a mystery."
No one said anything after that. They have no answers, but their thoughts were disturbed when they heard sudden explosions.
They all look at the monitors in shock, their famed guards were decimated
A few minutes ago, after Arc summoned a thousand droids he saw the guards deploying many peculiar devices in front of him, many of them transformed into something that projects an energy shield. He couldn't help but nod in approval.
And so he ordered the droids to fire. Well unfortunately he ordered all of them to attack, he only realizes his mistake a few seconds before the fire, by then it was too late. He saw a blinding flash followed by a huge tremor and shaking, and when the lights faded the guards are nowhere to be seen. Good thing the bridge remains intact but the bridge gate along with its guards has been reduced to ashes. And that was when the droids are firing in the lowest settings.
"Shit" he couldn't help cursing.
Jem on the other hand was giggling nonstop.
On the other side of the bridge the HOC, who was watching the fight in interest no longer have a smile on their faces, after what they have witnessed. They realize how serious the situations are.
The Pope and the Cardinals are the same their relaxed and easy-going attitude is gone.
"What is that? How can those small things have that kind of firepower." asked one of the Cardinals.
"Oh, I very much want to study them," said one of the cardinals the only one who still has a smile on her face.
"Lucia we have to first pass ordeal if you want to study them." said the pope who remains silent all this time besides the first questions he asked.
"Of course your grace, centuries have passed since Babel was created and no one manages to destroy it, not even the great Wyrm was able to destroy it. What more for those small things." Said Lucia with a mocking smile on her face.
All the Cardinals nodded, and smile.
"Babel Activate the divine shield!!" Lucia Shouted.
A huge Magical formation was formed on the top of the tower, then countless symbols appeared on the outer layer of the tower, forming a golden shield enveloping the whole tower and half the bridge.
"Oooh that's cool," said Arc looking at the glowing tower and the magical circular formations floating on top of it.
"Forward," with the order, the droids marched into the bridge, the bridge was wide the size of the bride is equivalent to a 10 lane freeway, maybe bigger. He can only imagine what kind of construct needed for this kind of wide bridge.
He noticed that the bridge was also glowing and symbols are also etched into the bridge. "So it's not an accident the bridge survived the blast of the 1000 1-star droids, despite it was on the lowest settings the power of the droids is not something a normal building can survive.
He was following behind the droids a hundred meters behind, he looked at the tower but all he can see are the golden glow. The tower is massive. Bigger than any building he saw before, the tower itself is like a huge city built like a tower. It is a circular tower. Looking at it from above he knows it was big but looking at it on the ground level he knows he severely underestimates its real size.
"Alright, let's see how strong this tower shield is"
This time he ordered the droids to fire in maximum power, the hands of the droids formed to become a cannon, energy can be seen building in front of it. It took several seconds for the droids to gather enough energy to fire in maximum settings.
Arc and his group were excited they are looking forward to what's going to happen next, will the droids succeed or not. He wanted to know how many droids he needed to breach those shields who looks very powerful.
