    It wasn't too terribly long before he made it to the fishermen. If it was in the real world where his stamina didn't recover so quickly then he'd probably have taken forever crossing the plains. He Came over to the place where he believed he saw the huntsmen, but wasn't really seeing them anywhere. He tried to walk into the woods to find them but no luck. Akio sighed and was about to give up when he heard leaves rustling. Turning around he thought he saw someone. Were they hunting right now? He tried to quietly walk over and greet them... But that was kind of hard when the entire forest floor was covered in leaves. One of them looked up and: It was a woman? She was wearing leather armor, a messenger bag on her back and what looked like daggers in her hands. She signaled for him to stop and he did. Just then a deer's head raised up just in time for the woman to throw the dagger which landed square in the buck's eye. The creature shattered and left behind its loot. "Wow! Nice shot!" he exclaimed. The woman walked over to pick up the loot. "What is a kid like you doing out here by themself?" Akio was about to talk before he remembered to check the cursor... Yellow. So she's an npc? A huntsman! Or, huntswoman he supposed. "Well, I wanna learn how to hunt for materials." The woman looked up from him as she took the leftovers from the deer and sighed. "Zachariah put you up to this didn't he? Here, I want this to end quickly if possible," she said before handing him one material. Akio blinked in surprise. "Th-Thank you!" "Don't thank me, I'm going to teach you how to get them yourself so you can leave me alone." [ID#118012] LD:11 - Result: +1 MATERIAL [1/5 Materials] LV: 2 Iron_Lion HP: [ ] EN: [ ] XP: [ ]

    After managing to sneak past the guards again Akio made his way back out to the fields. Soooooo, he needed materials for a potion... Or several potions really. Still, the npc had given him a hint. If he finds the other npcs in the valley. Specifically gatherers, huntsmen.... Maybe fishermen. He could actually get some advice on where to look. He ran up to a higher vantage point and looked around, but wasn't able to really see anything. Spotting a rather tall tree higher up however he grinned and rushed up there. When he reached it he ran up the side of the tree and started to climb. When he reached the top he cautiously moved to the edge of the branch and looked the massive fields from overhead. As he looked around he actually managed to spot yellow cursors indicating that there were in fact npc's down there. One area was a farm, so that was where he would be avoiding completely. Another was near a river. Fishermen... Only if he was desperate. Others were in the fields. Maybe they'd be huntsmen? He climbed down the tree again and began running towards the npc's in the fields. If they were huntsmen he could get some training in! [0/5 Materials] LV: 2 Iron_Lion HP: [ ] EN: [ ] XP: [ ]

    The npc nodded with a smile, and Akio noticed his name above his health bar. 'Zachariah?' "Right then. I can teach you how to craft a potion if you're up for it." 'Crafting? I need combat experience first though!' "But, I don't need-" "In order to craft we'll need some materials. You can find them outside of the settlement." "But I-" "If you need help finding materials there are farmers, fishermen, huntsmen and gatherers outside you can ask. Come back when you've collected a few!" With that the npc went back to work. Akio stood there dumbfounded as the quest update popped up, telling him what he needed. He silently turned around and walked out of the building. When he did he smacked his hands against his forehead. "Uuuuggghh! Why does this happen to me! This isn't what I want! I wanna survive not make drinks!" He kicked the wall, causing the <Immortal Object> symbol to pop up. He sighed in frustration before crossing his arms and pacing back and forth, muttering to himself. Eventually he leaned against the wall and sank to the ground, holding his legs. 'I don't really have a choice do I?..' He closed his eyes and took a deep breath. 'Even if it doesn't appear to be useful, take what you have and make the most of it. Use it to reach your goal, even if you must take the abnormal path.' He stood up and made his way for the gate. As he did... He thought about how he'd get past the guards again... [New Quest Obtained: Collect 0/5 Materials] LV: 2 Iron_Lion HP: [ ] EN: [ ] XP: [ ]

    Eventually Akio made it to the npc's home and panted. After recovering he opened the door and walked on in. The shop structure appeared rather basic and humble, but it was filled up with bookshelves, curtains and tapestries, tables with alchemy sets, potions, glass vials, etc. It was really cool looking through all of it. 'Wow, that looks complicated... I wonder if potions can do anything. Wait, aren't potions a type of magic? But I thought magic didn't exist in this world?!' He stood there in total confusion. Did magic actually exist? Was it going to be magic through items instead of spells? That would be, interesting but at the same time very contradictory to what everyone's been saying. Had they lied to him or was everyone just stupid? Before his train of thought could continue, he heard a voice speak up. "Welcome to my humble workshop young man!" Akio turned around to see an old NPC with white shirt, and blue vest lined with white. He reminded him of a wizard... "Is there anything I can do to assist you child?" Akio nodded. "Uh yeah. I need to complete a quest called... The, first few lessons are free? I was told you would be the start of the quest." The man looked confused now. "I, don't recall naming anything with that title. I do have a few things I can teach you though, if you prefer?" "Yeah, yeah let's do that." He never thought he would be embarrassed from an npc but here he was. He hoped this wouldn't take too long... LV: 2 Iron_Lion HP: [ ] EN: [ ] XP: [ ]

    Akio walked calmly over to the group of merchant npc's while trying to see how many there were. 'One, two, three, four, um... Fffiiive? Si- wait did I count that one already? Hmmm... Forget it, four or five should be enough right?' He walked over behind the merchants and tried to slowly make his way into the center of the group. However when he approached them the all stopped and turned to look at him. Akio stopped dead in his tracks. "Hello there child! Is there anything we can help you with? Anything you need to buy?" Akio was starting to panic at this point. He wasn't sure how they would react to him if he asked to be in the middle of them. The shady npc had seemed intelligent on his own. They were able to identify his age, but that could have been done via profile, or height and facial recognition... Soooo what did he do? What was the smart move??? "I want to walk with you guys, but only through the gate." '.....' "....." ..... "An odd request for sure, but we can do that. It's a scary world out there I'm sure, especially when you're alone. Come along child, we'll take you inside." Akio nodded his thanks before walking into the center of the traders. They walked towards the city and he felt the sweat slipping down his forehead. The guards who used to never move at all snapped their gaze to the merchants as they passed, watching their movements. Akio panted heavily, worried they would catch him. Even as they moved passed he felt their gaze following him. Only when they were beyond their visual sight did he sigh in relief. "U-um. Thank you sirs." The tradesmen would smile with a nod. "Of course my dear child! We wish you well." Akio nodded then bolted off towards the npc he was told held a quest. LV: 2 Iron_Lion HP: [ ] EN: [ ] XP: [ ]
  6. Akio nodded before he walked over to a seat and sat down calmly...ish. His legs kicked forward one after the other in sync as he looked around the shop some more. 'Wow. He really has trouble selling some of his items doesn't he? Or maybe they aren't for sale? That would be weird if they weren't.' So many items that haven't been sold. Was that on purpose? Or no? Eventually the blacksmith came back with the dagger and showed it to Akio. The boy's face lit up an rushed over to the desk before taking it. He looked at the blade and beamed at the smith. "Thank you mister! Thank you very much!" He grabbed the blade and swung it around a few times in the shop, careful not to smash or scratch anything. When he finished he looked back at him, looking a bit embarrassed. "I uh, should probably be going. Thanks again!" He ran outside and ran a few blocks away before looking at the blade. He only had the dagger, and some of the mechanisms. But soon he'd have a full bracer that had the blade working properly. Smiling he ran off to go... Find out how to make that happen.

    The NPC waved for Akio to move along but he didn't do that yet. He just stood there, very much confused. 'An NPC that can have intelligent responses to words and phrases it doesn't know? A tutorial for pkers that lasts a long time? What next? A boss that possesses players movements and thoughts?' Akio shook his head before walking back to the road and making his way over to the settlement. Three methods huh? Sneak past the guards. Get lost in the crowd. Or find secret passages. It was clear the latter he would not be able to do in a day... Maybe not even in a week if he was being honest. His best bet was the second method for today. Maybe there was a rush out? He looked at the time. Seven AM? That meant when he got there it would be around eight... That should work right? He pulled his bag further up his shoulder before quickening his pace. [Time Skip] Once he'd reached the settlement he hid himself behind some boulders. Watching the gates from afar. Ok, so there weren't surges of individuals. Only a few players who would definitely see the orange cursor above his head. Cool, no worries. He wouldn't bother hiding among them. Akio sighed. 'How am I supposed to use the crowd if the crowd has an insane advantage?' He leaned against the boulder and sighed. He waited a few more minutes before spotting something coming down the road. He squinted his eyes as he tried to focus in on it... Were those, tradesmen? Merchants? He saw yellow cursors and his face lit up with excitement. Yes! That was how he was going to get in!

    There was a hesitance from Akio. He had never encountered something like this in video games. NPC's were supposed to have specific dialogue, not be able to hold conversations. 'Maybe I should test this...' "Why do you look like Altair in his black armor?" 'He doesn't really, not by a long shot. But he shouldn't know who Altair is...' The NPC looked at him curiously. "I do not know who this 'Altair' individual is. I dress this way to push people away... And draw certain people to me." Well, it's official. This was weirding him out badly. The NPC gestured for Akio to move closer and he did. The yellow cursor made it clear he wouldn't fight him. Heck maybe he'd protect Akio if he was attacked, who knows? "There are several ways you can sneak past guards. The first is simply hiding your face and hoping they don't see you as you walk by. This can be difficult and isn't recommended as a continuous form of use. The second method is to hide yourself amongst the sea of people. Your shorter height will most certainly aid you in that, though it's still risky. The third is looking for secret passageways, exits and entries into and out of the city. They are extremely difficult to find, but if you Search hard enough you'll find them quickly." 'Well that's a not so subtle hint that finding these hiding spots will be virtually impossible unless I have that skill.. I really don't want it though.' "Is... Is that all?" The NPC nodded. "For now. Come visit me on occasion, I'll aid you if I can." LV: 2 Iron_Lion HP: [ ] EN: [ ] XP: [ ]

    Eventually Akio made it to the road and started walking towards the town of beginnings. Thinking hard about it, he couldn't really come up with anything on his own. He had no idea how he was going to succeed at sneaking past the guards... Maybe there was no special method? Maybe he had to just try and sneak past them? He was not looking forward to it at all. He wondered how he should do it... He needed to blend in as much as possible, but he'd also prefer not showing his face. But were there any players or npc's wearing white robes of any sort? Or hoods for that matter? He really hoped that some miracle was going to occur for him. As he walked he noticed an npc sitting in front of a tent in the woods. The npc was wearing a black cloak and hood with a smile on his face as he looked at Akio. The boy stopped moving and tilted his head as he saw the cursor color: Yellow. Yup, just an npc, not an enemy. Akio was about to move on when the npc spoke up. "Wanna be careful with that orange cursor now don't you?" This stopped Akio and turned to look at the npc again. 'Was he a side quest npc or something?' "I can take care of myself." The npc chuckled. "Then you know the best way to get into the town of beginnings unnoticed?" Akio's eyes widened. What?! "What are, you saying?" "I'm saying, you want someone to teach you the art of avoiding guards. How to live on the lamb. I can help you do that." '...No way. A tutorial npc for player killers?! Why would the game even have this?!' LV: 2 Iron_Lion HP: [ ] EN: [ ] XP: [ ]
  10. For the last three days, Akio hid away in the forest in his small tent. He'd been living off of the land so to speak, living off of edible plants, berries, breaking wood for a camp fire. He knew however that he was going to have to head back into town sooner or later. His supplies were getting low and he needed access to quest givers. Not to mention hearing rumors and gossip could always help him stay on top of things. He wondered if there would be rumors about the player who died... The one he killed... He shook his head as he tied up his wrapped up tent. No, he needed to focus on what he needed to do, not what may have happened. He needed to get to the quests. But to do that, he'd need to get past the guards... 'Judging by how they grabbed and threw out an orange player that one time, I imagine they will not want me to go in... I'll need to sneak in somehow.' He picked up his stuff and began to walk down towards the road. It was going to be a little while till he reached it, and from there the town so he had time to think. Try to sneak past them when they aren't looking? No, it was a well guarded town. Hide among a crowd of players? No, they'd see the orange cursor and turn him in. Maybe a crowd of npcs? Possibly, if there was a mechanic that allowed him to hire npc's to just walk with him. He couldn't scale the wall if he tried, and even if he could it was too dangerous without the skill needed. Though with forty health now instead of twenty that made things a lot easier. He wondered how he'd get in... LV: 2 Iron_Lion HP: [ ] EN: [ ] XP: [ ]

    [F1-SP] The Will To survive

    The fight was dragging on just a little bit, but it looked like the player would survive. He was fighting the last two boar's right now and was in orange health, nearing red. But the boar's were just about out of health. Akio had his hands firmly grasping the dagger he owned, and had moved his position by this point. He climbed a tree and was resting on top of one of the farthest branches. Watching the battle intently. The player managed to kill one of the last boar's but not before the first one brought his health to the red. Furthermore, just shy of death. The player slashed the boar and as he was doing this Akio made his move. He leaped from the branch and held his dagger in his left hand pointed downward. He thrust the blade into the player's neck, causing his eyes to widen as the last of his health was depleted to nothing. Turning Akio's cursor orange. When the player fell the boar panted but moved over to eat the flower before the player vanished for good. As the player lay there dying he looked at Akio with tearful eyes. "I.. I just needed protection.. They said I could join their guild if I was one of them. I'm sorry, I-" Akio shook his head, smiling sadly. Tears threatening to break on his face too. "No, don't.. Don't say you're sorry. You're a survivalist, like me... You don't have to worry about that now." The player looked heart broken but at the same time relieved before he shattered into crystals. Akio sat there for a little bit, tears dripping onto the ground. He wiped them from his face and stood up. 'Never let anyone know the truth about you. If they found out, get rid of the witnesses. If you can, turn them into an ally, but keep an eye on them. When in a fight, always trust your gut on which path you need to take.' Akio had chosen. He chose the safest path he could. Even still, this cursor would mark him a danger. He needed to lay low from now on. He turned to the boar which had a shred of health left. "...I need to improve. Sorry. But I have to kill you too."

    Akio steeled himself and took a deep breath in. As he did so the world seemed to slow down. The sounds around him ceasing to the slow drumming of the player's feet colliding with the ground. 'I can do this... I can do this...' He waited until the player was closer and raised his ax to swing at the child. Akio's eyes flashed with determination and a fierce violence before he pushed off, slid under the player, and tucked the flower into the player's boots. He didn't even notice it either. Akio dashed off with incredible speed at this point, waving his hands in the air. "Hey bacon!" he cried to the boar, getting its attention. He pointed to the player, where the boar's focus zoomed in on the flower tucked in the boots. "Treat! Yum yum! Go get him!" The boar roared and charged towards the player. When it did it broke out of the brush, letting Akio see its cursor. Purple?! He leaped out of the way as the mob charged the player who dodged it rather easily. "Nice try kid, but you aren't going to beat me like tha-" Before he could finish his statement the boar roared again and this time more appeared. Three others. The player looked concerned at this point. Then more continued to come. There were four, then six, then seven. The player started to panic and began attacking the boars while Akio hid behind a tree. He couldn't leave, he needed to make sure the player was dead... It was part of the creed. LV: 1 || Iron_Lion HP: [ ] EN: [ ] XP: [ ]

    The other player sighed and made the first move, charging forward at Akio. Akio didn't fight back, recognizing the glow of a sword art he knew he'd be dead within two, maybe three hits. Heck, if he was a tier three player he'd probably kill him in one hit! So he jumped out of the way, trying to roll to his feet but failing, ending up on his back. He didn't wait to see if the player was confused or running over, he rolled to his right onto his feet and dashed for the woods. From the sounds following him however, the player was almost on him. He saw a fallen hollow log and dived head first into it. Ignoring the one point of damage he got from the splinters inside. Once he stopped sliding he started crawling through it to the other side. He stopped however when he saw the player's ax bury it's way in front of him. As soon as he recovered he pushed off from the ax pulling himself back out of the log. When he did he rolled backwards, narrowly avoiding the ax again but started rolling downhill uncontrollably. He eventually hit a tree and sat a bit dazed. 'I can't die. I can't die! I have to get out of this world! I need to see my mom! But what do I do?! I can't beat him!' As the player walked over to Akio, ax swinging by his side, he spotted something in the woods behind him... A.. Boar. His eyes widened and slowly pulled out a flower. When he pulled it out, the boar seemed to catch it's scent and was starting to smell the ground for it. If he could plant this on the player........ LV: 1 || Iron_Lion HP: [ ] EN: [ ] XP: [ ]

    Akio's initial reaction was: Why was there another player out here with him? It was a huge map how did they run into each other. Sure there were a lot of players, but most of them moved up from the first floor. Then another thought crossed his mind: 'he was upset that I noticed him. Why...' He looked up at the player's cursor. It was green. He frowned in confusion, not understanding the situation at all. 'When you can't be sure, expect the worst. If your always ready for the worst possible outcome, not only will you not be surprised, but you'll be ready for it.' He would most certainly be ready for the worst... Which in this case, was that he was secretly a player killer. He ignored the green cursor, for all he knew there was a way to fabricate one or disguise their cursor. The player noticed the stance and rolled his eyes, drawing an ax himself. "Look kid, you aren't anywhere near strong enough to block my path. I've watched you fight that boar, don't make me cut through you like a ribbon." Akio was really scared right now. He doubted he could outrun this player, and he could very well be telling the truth about being stronger. What was he going to do?... LV: 1 || Iron_Lion HP: [ ] EN: [ ] XP: [ ]
