You finally succeed, Forrester, in getting 2 missiles to hit the City of the Gods.
However, the City is protected by an IMMENSELY POWERFUL forcefield, which saves it - mostly - from the effects of the blasts.
Vecna, of course, simply teleported through those defensive shields, but the antimatter blasts cannot do that.
You shouldn't worry about the City - it has sent out all it's forces.
It is actually helpless.
Meanwhile, it's forces in the field are now locked in a furious battle against the Faerie.
Fighting the Faerie is a new experience for the robots.
They are accustomed to enemies with forcefields, particle cannons, disintegration beams and missiles, and the like.
They don't know how to deal with invisible opponents, teleporting opponents, opponents who are ethereal and astral, opponents out of phase, opponents with illusions and phantasms, opponents who can return to their home plane and then Gate in behind them.
If the United Commonwealth is good at these things, the Faerie are better yet.
In fact, the is no fighting force on either Toril or Oerth that is better than the Faerie at this kind of fighting.
In futile robotic rage, the robots fire beam after beam of frying heat, wantom destruction, disintegration, green and red death, burning up trees, homes, the ground, and when they are done with that, they start burning holes in the ground.
When that doesn't work, they start burning down the hills and mountains.
It is futile. The Faerie stand there, and the beams go right through them.
Or the Faerie aren't there, and the robots find the Faerie inside them, and realize this just as the Faerie pull the plug.
The Faerie show the Robots of the City of the Gods, the hard way, that they can back up their anti-technological rhetoric with a very real threat.
(Heh. All of you who want to become technological powers, had better take note of this fact. When the Faerie speak, you had better listen!)
The entire robot assault grinds to a sudden halt, while the City of the Gods has the equivalent of robotic disbelief.
Holding a line across the southern lands of the Tiger Nomads and northern Yatils, northern Perrenland, the Sepia Uplands, and the northern Vesve Forest, the Faerie beat the Robotic invasion back, and the whole onslaught of the City of the Gods grinds to a halt.
And the battle rages on between the two forces.
The robots further east, descending on the Empire of Iuz, are met by a force of the Faerie also.
Before they can move to destroy Dorakaa, the Faerie intercept them in the Howling Hills (which will afterwards deserve that name.)
Again, the ethereal nature of the Faerie frustrates the robots, and they cannot win through!
