[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.]]

Roleplay Responses

When Magikarp began to glitch and fade away, Rimeheart recoiled a bit, considering this was just after pointing at her menacingly. When all was said and done and the disconnection messages appeared, Rimeheart took a moment or two before turning to the rest of the party and putting his hands up defensively. The way she had been glitching out was disconcerting enough. He didn't need his party members thinking he had done something.

Since it seemed like no-one was going to be pointing any blame at him for getting pointy with Magikarp and Nun, he settled down a little bit. Aelina's mention that she likely would return was reassuring, but from a gameplay standpoint they had lost their hardest hitter. His own damage wasn't shabby, but he still felt far too weak to be maining the DPS role. At least until he started to pick up or buy more powerful equipment.

However, now was the time for action, and Aelina made sure that they were all in better spirits before they headed out for the cave mapping quest. Along the way, Rimeheart decided to fiddle around with the UI of the game a little bit. He wanted to know if he could play music from his computer through the game, or at least start a web browser and play music from there. Not that the game music wasn't great already, but he still wanted to know.

Before long they had arrived at the mouth of the cave in question and a young woman was standing there, seemingly wary of entering. Based on her clothes, she was likely a caster class or some kind of rogue-like class. Either one made her a feasible DD candidate. When Aelina called out to her and she waved back, Rimeheart quickly began typing up an introduction for himself in the public text chat.

"Hello, I am R1M3H34RT, pronounced like it looks. I'm sure you're wondering why I'm sending a text message rather than speaking to you directly, and its because there's something wrong with the VR headset I have. Bought it second hand and it seems something in it is busted, so it doesn't register my speech."

Shortly after sending this message, he walked up to her, gave her a small wave, opened his stats screen for her to view, and then offered his hand for a handshake.

[b [#3333ff [i The Reality of Life]]]


She didn’t play the game for the possibility of a life changing amount of money, Liara played not a single game that way, she played for the two sole reasons of having fun while escaping the reality she lived in. Not that her life was bad in anyway, but Liara’s mind thrives on imagination and this new VR game fed assisted in feeding and nourishing the constant hunger. It indeed quite literally was fun and games.

But the main problem for Liara, why she didn’t play it as often as others, concerned the lack of friends with whom she could play the game. While nothing stopped from playing it solo, most of the people played with their friends or in parties of strangers. Being with strangers was awkward for working as a team led to difficulties as the people didn’t know each other, while with friends everyone knew the ins and outs of everyone. So while the endless possibilities of the VR game attracted Liara, the lack of people kept her from playing more often

[b [#3333ff [i The Reality of Game]]]

By this point in the game, a level 2 elven, no one knew she played as an elf, black mage wasn’t that bad. The downside with such a class was their squishiness, black mages melted away under powerful attacks. Black mages benefited from joining parties with tanky classes such as knights, but this particular black mage dealt with everything by herself which led to plenty of deaths.

In-game she was known as Taenya Nerina, or Taenya for short. Unlike the bright fluid colors on loose clothing which Taenya’s user spotted in real life, the in-game clothes were starkly contrasted and dark on more form fitting clothes. Only Taenya’s creator knew why.

[i Wait a minute, Taenya is a virtual extension of Liara, not some bot created to run and troll actual players...]

Taenya knew quiet well as to why she had decided on this choice, as well as the choice to play an elf, to get away as far as possible from being a human and a Liara. This logic applies to the class choice as well since in the real world magic didn’t exist while here it did. This did apply to the summoner class as well, but that class involved magicking pets into existence and pets did exist in real life.

Anyways, cave. As per usual Taenya chose some random place to explore all by her lonesome self. Of course traveling to those caves had detracted from her 20 points in AP so she took a rest in front of the cave to regenerate the lost AP. The cave itself was dark, the sound of water echoing within the stony walls. A tunnel went in before the cave swallowed it, what mobs and rewards awaited in those shadowy depths unknown to her.

Just as she was about to step deep into the cave a feminine voice called out. Turning around Taenya first spotted a female in armor, probably someone playing as a warrior or knight as well as some others following behind. Evidently this was a party, whether strangers or friends would have to be found out.

Taenya waved back, a friendly chuckle escaping those dark tinted lips. [b [#3333ff “Aye, I be thinking of entering these caves here. Some company would be very much appreciated, especially with me bein a squishy black mage and all”]]. In the back, Taenya was thinking how long could she get away with the group thinking she was a human character.

[center [b Aelina had smiled at nun as he introduced herself. He sounded really into this huh? As if this was really some fantasy world. Course she followed NPC Knight's around pretending to be one so did she have room to talk?]]

[center [b She did a playful curtsy though it was a bit awkward in all of her armor. She leaned in peering closer to the "Novice Gladiator" she smiled a wide brimming grin.]]

[center [+gold Novice knight at you're service! It's a pleasure Nun! I already got a catch phrase for you. "It's high Nun" Eh? Ehhh? Ehhh?!]]

[center [b She said leaning uncomfortably close to the male as she wiggled slightly with a vivacious smile. She pulled away as suddenly as she leaned in laughing with her hands proudly on her hips. It was than that Cherish had mentioned her upbeat attitude being at the right time. A "Deus Ex Machina" as she called it. Aelina smiled rubbing the back of her head lightly with a dusk of red on her cheeks.]]

[center [+gold Ahh~ Stop you'll make me blush! If that's possible in this world anyway. So we've got.. Rimeheart! Nun! Cherish! Not to mention the resident glass cannon? I mean Karp! Whoops sorry!]]

[center [b She leaned over to Karp shaking her hands with a light giggle. Before twirling around back to the center of the springs. She had stumbled a bit as she fell into the water. Hopping back up as she gave a confident grinning almost as if to ignore the embarrassing fall she just had. Followed by a hearty "hahaha" from the woman's small frame came a loud and bellowing laugh.]]

[center [+gold So you guys are heading to the caves huh? Well let's go! I'm roaring to take off! Let's do this! I'll protect you every step of the way!!]]

[center [b She puffed her chest as she hit the breastplate on her armor. A proud of her nostrils as she turned to give the lot of them a playful wink. Before she could take off running. She saw that Karp was having some technical difficulties. Aelina had gasped lightly and stared blinking. Despite appearing the air headed knight she quickly deduced she was possibly lagging. Didn't make it look any less creepy though.]]

[center [+gold Hmm..]]

[center [b Aelina crossed her arms as it appeared the morale of this new party was dropping. They had lost now two party members in one day. She scratched her head unsure how to cheer them up. "Well best to keep them on task right?"]]

[center [+gold Maybe she'll return? Who know's? Well in the meantime we should head to the cave I saw it on the way here it's not far!]]

[center [b Aelina lead them to the cave. Though as they came to the entrance they saw a woman in front of the cave. A lone black mage, was she planning to enter by herself?]]

[center [+gold Hey! You!! Are you thinking of going in too?]]

[center [b Aelina gave an exaggerated wave of her arm with another light smile.]]

[center [font "Times New Roman" [size12 Learning of Cherish's extra curricular activities, M4G1K4RP found herself smiling softly. She had a good feeling about this group. She couldn't quite logically explain it, but her gut told her they had a good shot. After pushing Nun into the water, she was alarmed to hear of Jae's fate. Making a quick check herself, she saw that it was true. Saddened now, she looked up to Rose with a soft expression on her face. As she went to say something, she felt a headache come on. She quickly turned around so none of her compatriots could see her troubled expression.]]]

[center [font "Times New Roman" [size12 Reaching a hand up to her head, she felt really weird, as if she was in several places at once. [i That's not possible though. I couldn't be-] Looking down at herself, she let of a scream of panic. Her gut felt like it was getting ripped apart, and it wasn't hard to see why. Her body was glitching, her waist and legs lagging between the last few seconds positioning. Attempting the clench a hand over her mouth to silence her screams, she tried to log out of Black Beast Online. It was tough, and took several seconds. Her vision was swimming by that point, and the moment she was fully logged out she mover so that she was leaning off of her bed, and proceeded to empty her stomach into the waste bin.]]]

[center [font "Times New Roman" [h3 Nun, Besaid Island, Healing Springs]]]

[center [font "Times New Roman" [size12 The sudden dip took Nun by surprise, but not a completely unwelcome surprise. Taking a couple moments to enjoy the water again, he finished securing his boots below the surface. Popping out of the water, he looked over to R1M3H34RT, and looked a little confused, before shaking his head. [#A2C4CF "My gun toting compatriot, that won't be necessary for the moment. Once we have made it to our current destination, I may be needing a bit more of a lift. But thank you very much for the offer."] With a look towards M4G1K4RP, his stomach jumped into his throat. It looked like she was getting ripped apart by some invisible force before she disappeared. A haunting message appeared in his chat.]]]

[font "Times New Roman" [size12 Player {M4G1K4RP} has left the party.]]
[font "Times New Roman" [size12 Player {M4G1K4RP) has gone offline.]]

[center [font "Times New Roman" [size12 Looking back to the fellow members of his party, he just gulped, unable to find words.]]]
  M4g1k4rp / GuardianAngel / 6d 3h 26m 8s
Rimeheart looked up at Cherish as he was securing his boots snugly to his feet. He took a moment to nod at her before pointing to himself and then making a walking motion with his index and middle fingers, followed by gesturing to the rest of them. He made sure his boots were tight before standing up and pulling his text writer up to elaborate.

"Yes, I think mapping out the cave will be the best course of action. I know that people are going to be trying to go directly after that prize money, but I think that taking a detour could be beneficial. The people making a mad dash for it are likely to be more severely under-prepared, so getting some extra gald and experience I think will be better for us in the long run."

He had forgotten to send the message to everyone in the party, but really didn't feel like typing all of that out again. He looked to Nun and Magikarp and went up to the both of them, pointing at them and then charading carrying something heavy.
  R1M3H34RT / Phytocanis324 / 7d 3h 13m 38s
[google-font,700&display=swap&subset=latin-ext] After coming up from the water, there were a bunch of reactions to the dive. Aelina’s was a spectacle. From what Cherish had seen so far, she would have been surprised for anything different. She was a bundle of sweet, lively fun. [#28c37f [Dancing+Script [size20 [i “Thank you, Aelina. I’m so glad we ran into you.Your cannonball was the inspiration. You should join me next time.”]]]] Swimming over to M4G1K4RP and Nun, she went over to her treading teammate and gave her a hug. [#28c37f [Dancing+Script [size20 [i “Thank you too, Karp! It’s so nice to see you moving again. I had swim class growing up, but that was thanks to gymnastics.”]]]] Of course she wouldn’t mention this online or in general, but part of why she took gymnastics was to help her get off situations with bullies during recreational activities. Well… the ones her brothers weren’t able to be all the time. Swimming was one of them, she could safely land in the water almost no matter how she was pushed in. It also helped on the monkey bars and other parts of the jungle gym during recess. Now, it was just a normal extracurricular, one she could merely enjoy.

Nun’s compliment didn’t quite add up. 7 out of 10 wasn’t a magnificent score. It was a good one, but not what he described.He was trying to give a safe comment by leaving a range of what he could have meant. [#28c37f [Dancing+Script [size20 [i “Really Nun? So, you didn’t even see it. It’s not like it could’ve been both.”]]]] She splashed a wave of healing water at him and then dove under to swim towards him. She came back up next to him and gave him a big hug. [#28c37f [Dancing+Script [size20 [i “I’m glad you’re okay though. You’ll attack the next one. If not, I’ll kill that one too.”]]]] She added that last part with a cheeky, but genuine smile. With M4G1K4RP doing so many laps, she probably would have drained her AP many times over if this wasn’t a healing spring. She seemed really into it too… Cherish was about to swim over to Aelina when M4G1K4RP suddenly stopped and introduced herself to her. With Nun joining the mix, both of them got to properly meet Aelina. While that was going on, Cherish was making her way out of the spring. It was about that time and they needed to move on. Everyone seemed to be doing the same anyway.

Once they were out, Nun asked brought everyone’s attention back to the mission and asked to officially join them. Almost in the same breath, he asked about Jae as he was putting on his shoes.. Even though M4G1K4RP had just pushed Nun back into the water, Cherish’s cheerful mood dropped. She was just coming back from grabbing her clothes and stopped in her tracks, with a crestfallen expression. [#28c37f [Dancing+Script [size20 [i “Jae left the game… That last battle was a lot… and well, it didn’t sit well with him. He left before Nun or I could say anything… I even tried to find his username… It’s gone.”]]]] After saying that, she caught herself and started to turn her mood around. [#28c37f [Dancing+Script [size20 [i “And then Aelina showed up with wonderful timing and Rimeheart was able to make sure we could all get to safety. Aelina, your cheeriness really changed things around then. At least for me. Thank you for showing up. It was almost like a deus ex machina.”]]]] Cherish continued what she was doing before and put on the rest of her clothes. It was weird. It felt like she put dry ones over wet ones… At least her clothes were pretty clean and didn’t need washing. So she wasn’t completely in wet clothes. Unlike M4G1K4RP, she’d have to wait for the rest to air dry. [#28c37f [Dancing+Script [size20 [i “The cave seems like it’ll be fun to map out. Maybe we'll find some cool shortcuts and passageways. What do you think Rimeheart?”]]]]

[center [font "Times New Roman" [size12 Nun took a moment to inspect his surroundings, he was relieved to notice that though it was unfamiliar territory, his party was all here. [i Wait a minute. Where is Jae? I'll have to ask someone about that.] Before he could get too doom and gloomy about being knocked out yet again, he heard a warning from Cherish. Ducking his head, he missed the dive, but judging from the sound of the splash... [#A2C4CF "That was a magnificent dive, Lady Cherish. I give it a solid 7 out of 10."] Watching everyone relaxing raised his spirits a bit, before he was eclipsed by a woman in shining silver armor. Equipped with a lance and shield nearly as big as she was, she was quite the, um, interesting sight. [#A2C4CF "Salutations, Lady Rosemond. Nun, Novice Gladiator, at your service."] Standing up, he offered her a bow, though he lost his balance and fell into the spring face first. The water striking his face cleared up his thoughts, and he quickly recovered. Wet clothing didn't bother him at all, and actually felt... Comforting? [i Must be the effect of my background.]]]]

[center [font "Times New Roman" [size12 Not wanting to worry his companions, he sprung to his feet, and shook himself off. With a small smile, he turned to R1M3H34RT. [#A2C4CF "I thank thee, for it is you who carried me to the healing spring, and were thoughtful enough to be careful with my person. I owe you one, as they say."] Stepping out of the spring, he turned to his compatriots. [#A2C4CF "I hate to be rude, but it seems we do have a request at a cave nearby. Lady Rosemond, if you'd like to accompany us, I see no harm in such actions. But, might I inquire as to the fate of Sir Jae?"] Standing at the edge of the spring, Nun began to put his boots back on, and fasten them.]]]

[center [font "Times New Roman" [h3 M4G1K4RP, Besaid Island, Healing Spring]]]

[center [font "Times New Roman" [size12 Completely submerged in the water, M4G1K4RP took a moment to marvel at the power of the hardware she was currently hooked up to. Looking down at her hands, and at herself, she was quite impressed. Everything felt right, even the bits that were most certainly wrong. Like how the water was making her hair float, and made her feel all warm. Emerging from the water, she caught Cherish's dive. When her friend emerged, M4G1K4RP bounced up and down in the water, excitedly waving her arms. [#7ef26d "Way to go, Cheri! Did you do professional diving, by any chance?"] Doing a quick lap of the spring, she noticed Aelina's presence, though with how shiny she seemed, both physically and personality wise, she was unsure how Aelina slipped past her gaze. Making her way over, she stood up, and offered a hand. [#7ef26d "Why hello there. I'm M4G1K4RP, or Karp for short. I appear to be the resident glass cannon. Er, I mean, Spell Monk."] Displaying her stats to the Knight, she smiled proudly.]]]

[center [font "Times New Roman" [size12 Being reminded of the quest, she paused in thought for but a moment, before running over to her clothing. Taking her robes, and submerging them in the water, she gave them a quick scrubbing before putting them back on. With a grandiose gesture, she stepped up the her ankles into the spring, and cast Fire. Her skin became sun kissed, her hair standing up and flickering like a fire, her skin and clothing instantly dried out. Watching her MP fill back up, she stepped from the water with a smile, her appearance returning to normal. [#7ef26d "Oh, right! That innkeeper gave us that quest. Rose looks like she can hold her own, so I wouldn't mind her accompanying us."] Walking past Nun, she had a fleeting thought. Acting upon it, she gave him a quick push, sending him back into the spring as he finished fastening his boots.]]]

Seeing his companions wake up was a relief. Rimeheart let his shoulders relax a moment and rotated his arms around the shoulder joint to work them out before bending down and rolling up the bottoms of his pants. He sat down next to the water when that was finished and removed his boots and socks, dipping his feet into the water and stretching in relaxation. He hadn't even taken any damage, this was just as a way to both see what he could in fact feel in the virtual world rather than the real one.

He watched the girls playing around as they healed in the spring water. He realized he hadn't really had a chance to introduce himself either, so he pulled up his text writer and got to work writing up an introduction for himself. He figured since Cherish had told Aelina he was incapable of speaking that he didn't need to elaborate on that further.

As he was finishing up, he felt his vision start turning sideways as an arm flew in front of him and he felt the distinct impact of a heavily armored woman from his side. This left him on his side for the remainder of Aelina's stay. With shaky arms and fingers he managed to type out his message to her and send it.

"As I'm sure you can see and as you've heard, I go by Rimeheart. As you've also noticed, I can't speak for some reason. So I'll generally be communicating with hand signs and gestures. In regards to you, we actually just lost our tank, and could really use another one. Everyone else is a bit squishy, especially Magikarp, our resident glass cannon. I'm just glad my class has enough AP for three people or they'd be kinda screwed. In any case, it's nice to meet you."

[center [b Aelina had listened as she nodded crossing her arms.]]

[center [+gold Yeah yeah, oh? A tank..? Wait.. What's that again? Umm.. Oh that's.. The guy who takes all the damage right?]]

[center [b She placed a finger on her lips tilting her head slightly. Aelina played tons of single player RPG's. However? She wasn't big into MMO's ever before. She played a few multiplayer games sure but never enough to hear of roles such as tanks or DPS. However when she heard Black Beast was coming out? She practiced some in MMO's and started studying various terms. Though she still wasn't entirely sure at times. That being said? It seemed she had a decent knack for spending her points. Though her style wasn't very strong in solo combat.]]

[center [+gold That's cool that were both LV 2! I really like your avatar by the way! She's really pretty! Cherish? Awe that's so cuuuuute! I wish I had came up with a better name. Well.. At the same time though I really hold the username close. It's just so hard coming up with new names ya know? Most of all when you grow up using a username so long! Though I'm kinda new to online gaming but it's really nice!]]

[center [b Aelina had caught herself rambling on to these stranger. She had bumped herself on the side of her head playfully as she stuck her tongue out.]]

[center [+gold Oh I started rambling didn't I? Whoops! My bad~ Hehe sorry about that! Wait.. Sleeping friends? One of you's mute?]]

[center [b Aelina turned around quickly to see Rimeheart. She grinned as her big doe eyes opened widely. Almost as if there was a sparkle in them. She tackle the man poking his strange helmet she loved the armor. She giggled lightly poking at his helmet.]]

[center [+gold Do you think he somehow muted himself by mistake? That'd be pretty funny!]]

[center [b Being here? Almost as if she was really there? It was why she wanted to get into the game. Though with her armor? On top of her defense? Aelina hadn't taken any real damage and so she wasn't even sure how much one could feel in this game. She would be in for a surprise later on. Though she had felt the water and it was rather nice. Hopping off the man she watched Cherish make her own dive into the pool. Aelina had really liked Cherish's approach. She had hollered and whistled laughing. It was than that the other two had finally awakened. Aelina had came over to the two smiling. She hadn't made her grand intro. Not like she had with Cherish or like Cherish had to her. So she simply placed a hand on her hip and pointed at herself.]]

[center [+gold Welcome back to the living you two! Nice to meet you! I'm Aelina Rosemond! Feel free to call me Rose if that's easier! I'll be your friendly neighborhood knight for this evening!]]

[center [b She had flashed a bright smile at the two. She enjoyed following the NPC knights but this? Meeting new people? That was really nice to. especially when... Well never mind that. It was just.. Well it was just nice!]]

[google-font,700&display=swap&subset=latin-ext] Cherish was glad to see the knight smile after calling out. Though she seemed to have underestimated her as sunshiny. Ray of sunshine wasn't even quite enough. She was a walking solar flare. She seemed like a lot fun to hang around. Before even replying, she did these really fun moves by spinning her shield and lance as she put them away. Cherish wished she had a shield and lance to join in too… Though she could probably do something similar with her staff, but it wouldn’t be the same. Either way, this would be a cool mini trip to the springs.

[#28c37f [Dancing+Script [size20 [i “Yes, of course I’m sure. Nice, I’m level 2 too! As for damage, our party could actually use a tank way more at the moment.”]]]] With the knight’s reply and side bump, she added, [#28c37f [Dancing+Script [size20 [i “I’m serious. Though you may be at a disadvantage in a water fight. If you’re up to it when we get there.”]]]]

Aelina made her own platform with her shield and she introduced herself. Cherish decided to respond in kind. She planted her holy staff into the ground and took a step back, leaving the staff just out of arm's reach. She leapt into the air and flipped forward, descending on the top of her staff. After sticking the landing on one foot, she grinned. [#28c37f [Dancing+Script [size20 [i “Nice to meet you, Aelina. I’m Cherish Noxolo. Cherish works. If anything else comes to mind, let me know. Salutations to you too.”]]]] After their silly exchange, she hopped off to the side of her staff and caught it before it fell over. Using it to point, [#28c37f [Dancing+Script [size20 [i “Since he can’t send messages at the moment, this silent sniper right here is Rimeheart. Not sure why, but he can’t talk. Our two sleeping friends are Magikarp and Nun. Though you guys can have a real intro once they’re healed.”]]]]

Once they got to the spring, Aelina ran and cannonballed into the water. Rimeheart set Magikarp and Nun’s feet into the water so they could heal. Meanwhile, Cherish saw a ledge above the spring. She stepped out of her boots, ditched the extra layers, and set them off to the side. This game was so real, she wasn’t sure if they would need time to dry and for how long. Besides, it wasn’t like they covered much more than her underwear anyway. Though it was nice for all of the white markings she had on her avatar to be more forefront. Making sure she held onto her staff, she scaled up the side of this hill in order to get to that ledge.

Once up there, she looked down to see where everyone was. Magikarp and Nun were finally up, and the former had just cannonballed into the water. [#28c37f [Dancing+Script [size20 [i “Nice one!”]]]] She shouted from the tip of the ledge. [#28c37f [Dancing+Script [size20 [i “Hey guys. Please watch your heads.”]]]] Cherish retreated from that border by a really good bit. She had an idea of what she wanted to do when she got up there, but was questioning if she should join the cannonball trend. [i [Dancing+Script [size18 Next time.]]] Once she was far enough, she sprinted back to it with her staff at shoulder height. She plunged it right into the edge to launch herself into the water. However, instead of doing a cannonball, Cherish rotated her arms forward and brought them together. With her staff going back along her left arm, she dove into the water. [#28c37f [Dancing+Script [size20 [i “That was so much fun,”]]]] she thought out loud as she reemerged above the water. [#28c37f [Dancing+Script [size20 [i “Nun! Magikarp! Glad you're both awake!"]]]]

[center [font "Times New Roman" [size12 M4G1K4RP awoke to a warm sensation on her feet and ankles, her health bar slowly filling, and the scent of warm water in the air. Slowly opening her eyes, she found that she had been transported to a hot spring. With a grin, she slid out of the springs, then her sooty robes, and cannon balled into the springs with a giddy shout of [#7ef26d "CANNON BALL!"] Like most MMOs, under the robes was a set of modest underwear.]]]

[center [font "Times New Roman" [size12 [h3 Nun, Unknown Cave, Besaid Island]]]]

[center [font "Times New Roman" [size12 Nun slowly came to, before jolting as he was struck in the face with a warm wave of liquid. He shook his head as he was bombarded with prompts. from Exp gained from the last battle, a loot log, and a level up screen. [i A warrior, huh? It looks powerful. I hope we meet up with Arthur soon so I can check out this skill...]]]]

Entering the cave, R1M3H34RT looked to the water and dodged the incoming water as best he could when Aelina cannonballed. He thought about how he was going to get these two in the water and ensure they didnt drown, realizing that that was likely a thing in the game. He also thought that the spring would work if the person being healed had any part of them in the water, so he carefully set the two of them down at the edge of the water, pulled off their boots, shoes, socks what-have-you, and then pulled them to the water and put their feet in.

Satisfied with his work, he removed his own boots and rolled up his pants before wading in himself, relaxing his shoulders and stretching. Carrying two people wasnt exactly easy, but he was still surprised at how light they were. [i There must be some correlation with the attack stat or something to determine how "strong" a character is.] he thought to himself.

[center [b Aelina had twirled around playfully with a smile on her face. Ready to head toward the spring. She was eager to rest her weary bones. A smile plastered across her cheery face. It was strange how she went from sincere prayer straight back to her usual cheery herself.]]

[center [b She had turned her head to look back at Cherish with big blue doe eyes. She tilted her head before grinning brightly. Spinning around her shield on her arm before holding it over her shoulder in a rather showy display. She did the same with lance spinning it before placing it on the ground.]]

[center [+gold You sure about that? I gotta let you know I'm only LV two. Also I'm not very useful for causing damage.]]

[center [b Aelina picked her lance up before heading beside Cherish playfully bumping the complete strangers shoulder.]]

[center [+gold Although~ If you are serious? We can go together, I wouldn't mind teaming up for a bit.]]

[center [b She smiled brightly she would offer to carry the KO'd members but.. It seemed they already had it. Aelina had threw her shield upward before slamming it on the ground. Jumping on top of it she placed her tiny fist proudly on her hips before pointing to herself with her thumb.]]

[center [+gold My name is Aelina Rosemond! You can call me Aelina or even Rose if that's easier. Greeting and salutations!]]

[center [b After the knight gave her quirky introduction the group was off. The springs weren't far off. The branching path from the cave or to the port was only a stones throw away in fact still. Aelina had hopped into the spring in a cannon ball with full armor and all. She didn't seem to mind. She let out a sigh of relief the water was warm and gentle. She felt rather at home. Hopefully armor couldn't rust in this world.]]
  Aelina Rosemond / ShieldHero- / 43d 9h 26m 41s
The two people he was carrying didnt even seem that heavy at all, though it was still strange to have the sensation of weight on him despite this being a video game. VR technology had come so far in just the past couple of years. So far that he wondered whether Jae had gotten any of his lunch on him in the real world when he started wretching. Unable to make any signature to communicate right now, he could only watch as Jae disappeared and was soon thereafter removed from the party. {i Must not play a lot of violent games. Then again, the smell of burning flesh IS a bit much...] He thought.

Recollecting himself, R1M3H34RT shook his head when questioned about whether Cherish should carry someone for him. He'd realized very early that his class was the only one with such a massive pool potential regarding AP, so it wouldn't even be that taxing on him to carry two people, especially after leveling up and gaining even more AP to utilize. He was contented with being the pack mule for now if it meant getting everyone to this spring safely.

Hearing a young woman's voice in the distance, R1M3H34RT looked to someone who was very clearly another knight, judging by the sizable shield and even more massive lance. Perhaps she could be persuaded to join their party, since she didnt seem to have one of her own and was headed in the same direction he and Cherish were going based on the conversation. He could only watch as Cherish called out to the knight and wait for their conversation, as both of his hands being occupied would be problematic for "talking".

[google-font,700&display=swap&subset=latin-ext] Even with accepting the mapping quest, it was really sweet of the innkeeper to give them food to take with them. Cherish was actually surprised he just gave it to them when Nun asked for a price. He had already allowed everyone to rest up and eat without any charge. Even though they needed to get to Drevin, they needed to get those maps for him and his brother first. Looking at Nun, she couldn’t help but think [i [Dancing+Script [size18 Family looks out for family.]]] They needed to help the innkeeper look out for his.

After discussing everything with the group, most of them didn’t have a strong opinion as long as they could level up and enjoy more of the game. [#28c37f [Dancing+Script [size20 [i “Sounds like we’ll be making maps on the way to Drevin. Catch all the sights and gain ample EXP!”]]]] So they set out to do just that. The tropical setting was really cool. It must have been a fun view for M4G1K4RP, though she wasn’t sure if R1M3H34RT was able to enjoy the surroundings. There were tons of wonderful patterns everywhere. Along the way, she tried to use the virtual camera setting to take reference photos of all the inspiration, but an error popped up saying it required an item to unlock. Cherish almost instinctively cut her eyes and poked her bottom lip out when she read that. With an undeniable pout, she voiced her thoughts [#28c37f [Dancing+Script [size20 [i “Well that’s just cruel.”]]]] They continued their journey to the cave.

As they got closer, she started to smell this rusty metallic odor permeating the air. It was faint but the smell only became stronger with each step forward. [i [Dancing+Script [size18 “Oh no.]]] She held her staff close and angled to move however she needed at a moment’s notice. Just then, an abrupt scream of terror from up ahead cleared any possible doubts of that smell. Hurrying over to whatever was going on, none of them expected to see what they did…

Cherish gagged. Luckily she was able to keep things down, but that reflex was definitely triggered. The intense blood odor wasn’t by itself anymore. She didn’t know how it changed to such a disgusting? Foul? Putrid? There weren’t many words she could find... It hit her like someone pushed her face first into a brick wall. With the gruesome scene of scattered globs of shredded organs, there even shattered bones with pieces of human entrails dangling off of sometimes multiple fragments. A piece of someone’s scalp still had hair on it as it lay in the shadow of the swiss cheese styled helmet that was supposed to protect the head it came from. The goblins before them were still finishing up their butcher party. Although two guys tried to run away, one fell in the process… Still soaked in blood and decorated with skin draping all around the barbs, one of the goblin’s mace quickly found its way to the former guard’s spine… This time, she didn’t gag. She couldn’t. As that mace lifted again, so did that goblin’s eyes… and it fell on her and the entire party. The fight was theirs now.

Three goblins formed up in front of the others, leaving three more behind. Jae, Nun, and Cherish were the first ones up too, leaving their prized l33t players on standby. However, it was almost immediately agreed to send her to the backline. Switching out with R1M3H34RT, she understood why… sending someone with only 1HP with an unknown enemy isn’t usually plan A, B, C, maybe D or E… Just maybe though. With Valh, she knew she’d definitely be Plan F. For all else failed, they’d wipe the floor of everyone. She

That’s what it came to. Nun was taken out by a perfect 1-shot. M4G1K4RP stepped in for him as Cherish dragged his unconscious body to the backline. Including avenging Nun, R1M3H34RT was able to take out one and M4G1K4RP was able to 1-shot two goblins. With Jae blocking for M4G1K4RP as she took all the aggro, the fireworks show was looking good. Until she got burned… During her crescendo, M4G1K4RP and the goblin leader took each other out.

And then there were two… goblins. Cherish came to the forefront of the battle with her staff in both hands. She made a figure eight in the air. As the figure eight was ending and coming back with a forward movement, she finished the motion with a downwards one.. She stretched out her front leg and leaned slightly as she held the end of the staff pointed to the ground just before her foot.[#28c37f [Dancing+Script [size20 [i “Ni tult- le ana sina nór, Valhalla”]]]]

While taking form, Valh took over the entire field. His majestic pear-white wings and voluminous tailfeathers left no room for even a weapon. His azure-colored eyes stared directly into the souls of the enemies and striking fear as his prey. He glowed in such a way that it looked like blue flames were emanating from his feathers. Valh rose his wings up and slammed them down in front of him. Not forcing lifting him up, but crushing the goblins entire structure to pulp with air pressure.

The match was over. Everyone still alive received the same EXP, though they'd have to find out from the other two once they were healed. That needed to happen before something else attacked. Although Cherish wanted to heal them right then and there… she preferred them waking up in a safer area, and not have to fight gag reflexes when they did.

Speaking of gag reflexes, she could hear how it was taking a heavy toll on Jae. He took on a lot of those blows during the fight. On a mental level, those goblins weren't glamorized at all. They're faces looked real… Body structure, facial features, all the imperfections in between… Even their hot breath… That stunk so bad, her real nose might have been burning. Cherish was only close enough to have that displeasure once… and Jae was the one who blocked for her… and for himself, and for M4G1K4RP… [#28c37f [Dancing+Script [size20 [i “Hey Jae, are you—"]]]] He was gone. Quickly looking at her party info, she saw him as offline and then not at all. [#28c37f [Dancing+Script [size20 [i “Sorry, Jae. Thank you for everything."]]]] They wouldn't have won without him. She wished she could have thanked him beforehand… but she'd rather him feel better. Or her…

A bunch of soldiers and knights showed up. Just in time to carry off the fallen… They were upset they arrived too late and offered a map ad thanks… but wasn't that the case in real life too? Authorities almost always arrived too late. Though, it's sad no matter where it is…

After thanking the captain, she offered condolences to those guards and their families. As he went back to his duties, she looked at the map and glanced around where they were.

[#28c37f [Dancing+Script [size20 [i "Hey Rimeheart. There's a spring really close. Right over there,"]]]] she pointed in the direction from the map. [#28c37f [Dancing+Script [size20 [i “It fully heals all of our stats and won't kill your AP. We can regroup there. If you want, I can carry one of them one over there. Does that sound good?"]]]]

After reaching an agreement, Cherish updated her stats. And right after confirming them, she heard a very sunshiny voice. Going to the spring? A knight?

[#28c37f [Dancing+Script [size20 [i “Heyyy, uh Knight Lady!!! Just heard you're going to the spring. We are too. Wanna go together?"]]]]
