[center [b A hot new MMO RPG has just come out on the new VR. The first of it's kind that allow the user a deeper experience with the game. With a unique catch for the mainstory quest. It's difficult and complex with no real quest markers. Though the real kicker is the entire player base share the main quest leaving only one party to actually beat the game. Icing on the cake? Whoever does so will win a large sum of cash.]]
[center [b The plot? A monster that was supposedly made as the worlds sin in monster form. "Sin" has been around for hundreds.. even thousands of years. This monster goes more commonly as Black Devil. From its scales is beast that comes to life. "Sin Spawn" the devil's shadows. The world covered with beast and scorned by humanity's sin. "Machina" the machines the mankind had that once helped indulged us in our sins has now been banned. In religious pursuits was found "magics" a gift from God for our repenting nature. "If mankind is clean of sin than will they be free of it" so mankind has found a way to combat sin. "Summoners" those strong enough to use the spirits. The "Aeons" to combat the Black Devil. The summoner must go to every temple to gain each and every Aeon to grow that power. So that they may summon the Final Aeon to defeat Sin. Thus taking the life they used for the people. Every 15 years the Black Devil returns and no one is sure why.]]

[center [h3 Questing Time]]
[center [b Arthur had a quest to complete. It was a "Player based Quest" generated by the game. Deliver a sword... where?]]
[center [b Before he could figure out the quest his friend had decided to pop him a message. They had added each other on the friend list. It seems if his friend was too far? That it wouldn't tell him where he was. "I wonder if joining a party changes that?"]]
[center [b Arthur had made his way over to Alabaster. Arthur had named his avatar the same as his own IRL name. So he wasn't exactly creative. His handle name in full was actually. "Arthur Chevalier" his last name wasn't anything as cool in real life but yeah.]]

[center [h3 Zanarkand]]
[center [b Whoa! The tech in this town looked crazy! This wasn't on the map before.. A new spawn point? It wasn't long before Arthur found his pal.]]
[tangerine [size30 [center Hey man! Who you calling traitor? It wasn't my fault I got lucky and won!]]]
[center [b He placed his arm around the swordsman with a beaming grin.]]
[tangerine [size30 [center Oh you just started! Nice I'm only LV4 it's hard to level without a party... By the careful about those parties man! For the contest you are only allowed I think.. Three party changes or you can't qualify? A party can only be seven too! Ooo let me check out your sheet!]]]
[center [b Arthur had scrolled a text out of thin air around his old pal. As he let out a grin.]]
[tangerine [size30 [center The internet was reading up on the classes and skills and strategy books. People felt Body Conditioning would be a meta choose for a LV1 swordsman. Course you've always played against the Meta in Gaia with me and Arietta too didn't ya? Multi Slash? My level 3 Skill isn't exactly considered meta but the games young we might learn something they don't know honestly. Oh by the way did you look at your LORE card?]]]
[center [b Arthur flipped the swordsman's sheet in the air as he seemed a bit surprised.]]
[tangerine [size30 [center A LORE card by the way is like an RNG kinda backstory our characters start with? At least I thought it was RNG I don't know now. Apparently your character grew up here in Zanarkand as this badass in a local sport a star player. Explains why the NPC's here are star gazing you. My LORE card is completely blank...]]]
[center [b PING! Arthur had saw an exclamation mark over the swordsman. As Arthur was instructed to hand the sword over.]]
[tangerine [size30 [center Wait was my quest LORE related? Weird... well apparently I'm supposed to give this sword to you?]]]
[center [b Arthur had handed him an Ice Blade as an EXP marker went over Arthur's head. LV5!]]
[tangerine [size30 [center Oh hell yeah that was like one fourth of a level up cool! Let me spend my SP real fast grow my attack and defense a bit. I'll put five points in each here... Well the weird part about your LORE card is it says that your hometown was attacked. I don't see anything tho-]]]
[center [b Before Arthur could finish that sentence an explosion was set off in the distance. Hover bikes and cars flying and whizzing by as people ran for there lives. A giant beast wrecking havoc upon the town as it destroyed massive buildings in the way.]]
[center [pic http://i.imgur.com/XtWQIXb.jpg]]
[tangerine [size30 [center Level.. Unknown yikes that thing probably has at least 50 levels on us.]]]
[center [b Arthur had noticed a cloaked woman on top of a building standing completely still. Monsters all around her but they hadn't cared about her presence it seemed.]]
[center [b She was short and slender but other than that? Nothing? He couldn't make out if she was even a player or an NPC. However before anything some beast had started charging down the street at him and Alabaster.]]

[center [b The music was growing tense and Arthur couldn't help but smile. He was looking forward to getting some good action in! He was getting used to the feel of it all but he knew he loved every second of it.]]
[tangerine [size30 [center We'll have to worry about these guys first before anything else. I know this is your first fight but I have a feeling you'll pick it up quick. I'll warn you though VR in full dive is.. Intense your first fight. Sounds,Sensations,Smells it's easy to forget it's a game. It's cool! Just a little a intense knowing you? You'll probably love it.]]]
[center [b Arthur was a little spooked his first fight the slight tinges of pain. Thinking how he was asleep in his bedroom during this game? Dead to the world? It was... Freaky but he got used to it though it was tough adjusting. Drawing his blade he looked forward at the beast in front of him.]]
[tangerine [size30 [center Beast Spawn these come from the Black Beast itself. Looks like we got three of them!]]]
Beast Spawn: (A)
Beast Spawn: (B)
Beast Spawn: (C)

[h3 [center [b 11:58]]]
Tonight was the launch of one of the most anticipated games Alabaster had taken interest in for quite some time. Staring down at his watch, his breath visible on the cold air.
[i 11:59] He thought to himself. It was unfortunate that he had to wait to play until launch day but other matters kept him busy during the Tournament so there was no chance of him getting early access, unlike a certain some one.
Finally the doors swung open, Alabaster shifted in his coat, he was third in line and more than ready to get in to Zanarkand. As the first person grabbed their copy, and then the second, he felt a small bit of excitement, Supposedly Black Beast was the spiritual successor of a game he and his friends played earlier, so it would only feel right if he brought his old avatar back with him.
[h3 [center [b Home]]]
The sound of a radial fan in the silent room, the only light was from the headset on his desk, it was like this most days, without classes or work, he would sit in his room and play games until his friends showed up and forced him to interact with the out side world.
[font "Times New Roman" "Well I guess I better tell Arietta that i'm getting on"]
Sighing as he pulled out his phone , the light nearly blinding him, [i Jesus, so bright.] [b Message sent] was displayed on a sign held by a small bunny in the center of his phones screen, it wasn't really his style, but he wouldn't have a phone without her so he might as well just accept the stuff that was on it when he got it. Removing the winter coat and beanie from his head and grabbing the headset, Alabaster made his way to the desk to lg in for the first time.
[h3 [i [b [center Welcome to Black Beast Online]]]]
Being immediately bombarded with the opening cinematic startled the young man to some annoyance but it wasn't long before he was enthralled with the life like beauty.
[font "Times New Roman" "Now to pick a class...Summoner? No...I don't really like tanking, can never really rely on the healer, Rouge? Maybe...Oh Swordsman, there it is, our hero reborn."]
Alabaster began creating his avatar with ease, seeing as it was modeled after an old avatar he used to use back on his Gaia Frontier days. Blonde hair, blue eyes, very brave hero looking, the exact opposite of him in real life, but hell it was a game so why not right, it's supposed to be an escape. With that he was finished, stats specked and on his was into the starter town.
It wasn't long after loading in and dismounting the carriage he already had a message, from a good friend of his, someone who didn't have anything to do during the tournament and managed to win without him.
Alabaster opened his mail and sent out a reply with his co-ordinates tagged, it read something along the lines of, [i Hey traitor i'm here.]
