⸢ GAME END ⸥

[ A message goes out to every Relic at noon, a succinct invitation directly from CCorp. Any replies to the message will bounce back, but there may be a GM around to grill for questions if you're lucky! ]

Good afternoon, Players!

We would like to extend a formal thank you to everyone who has participated in the closed beta for The World. A festival will be prepared down the bridge to the Chaos Gate and you're all encouraged to attend. All information we required was gathered from your testing, and we only hope that you thoroughly enjoyed your sneak peek of The World. We hope that our project will bring a new depth to the world of gaming with our innovative and immersive technology, and again, we thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.

Closed beta is coming to an end, and you will have 24 hours to say your goodbyes and exit through the Chaos Gate. Simply choose the blank Area Word for all three columns and you will be returned to your homes.

Sincerest regards, and to new adventures!
- CCorp Project Team



[ True to word, there are booths set up all down either side of the bridge with a number of foods, games, drinks, and souvenirs to be taken freely. The Chaos Gate can still be used regularly for a final farewell dungeon dive in The World, or perhaps enjoy the serene landscapes before returning to your own when. Mingle away! ]

la deuxieme dance

Phantom thieves... Honestly. [he laughs quietly to himself] Must be how Inspector Vergier and Charlie feel when...

[Raphael's hanging out in Lumina Cloth, the lights and setting... Not really reminding him of home but he prefers the bustle of this Root Town to the sedate pace of Mac Anu. He didn't get very far with the last quest and when he'd tried to enter on his own it had been more of a disaster than his first attempt to break into the Louvre. Good thing he was an expert in making quick getaways from sticky situations.

Maybe it would have been easier if Fondue was here to offer backup]


...

[a quick shake of his head - whoa, now was not the time for reminiscing! - before he finds himself a clear corner of the plaza and starts putting together a short dance number to whatever rhythm is playing in his head. Wouldn't want to get out of practice now, would we? Maybe if he focused on something else until his mood improved...]

06 | Meteor Explosion

A ) @Lumina Cloth

[Around the town Ryusei is frantically running around, stopping random people and asking them questions. Sometimes he walks away angrily if they didn't know the answer and if they did, he would ask more until he was satisfied. Why is he so angry?]

B) Over the network


Text

Does anyone know any location where they've experienced some kind of anomaly or interference? If you do, please contact me ASAP.

C) @ Roaring Doomed Blue Cloud

[Ryusei charged straight into the dungeon, a look of ferocity and determination etched all over his face. He barely has any supplies with him, no healing spells, no fairy orb to map his way inside. He's going in half-cocked and full force. By the time anyone catches up with him, he's about to face a big group of enemies. Some of them can heal and cast spells while the others fight face-to-face. Ryusei grunts and then pulls out a black object from his relic and straps it to his waist.]


Don't get in my way!

[Within a matter of seconds, Ryusei is bathed in a blue light and suddenly he is covered head to toe in black and blue armor. Some may recognize the figure as Meteor, a masked man hwo fights off PKers.]

Your fates...are mine to decide!

[Ryusei charged off into battle. What is his objective? Why did he disregard his identity? Perhaps if you aid him, you'll find out.]

Fourth Shot

[Shockingly enough, Shinon is not in a dungeon or field for once! Rather, she's sitting for a break in the Warp Gate room in Mac Anu, her beloved Hécate II propped up beside her. She's also... incredibly zoned out. To the point where she probably won't notice other characters unless they actually come up to her and call out to get her attention. By the looks of it, she's fairly worn out despite it only being the afternoon.

The people most close to her (particularly guildmates) are free to note that not only has she not been around the @Home much lately, but she also seems to have lost a level somehow.

Somebody's been pushing herself a tad too much as of late...

« First Heal »

( action ¤ field )

[ If you're out and about on the fields today, it's quite plausible that you'll encounter both Kirito and Celica partying up and level grinding together. While they do look like they're doing pretty well, on closer inspection it should be rather obvious that they were both new to the game. Regardless, nearing the end of the day, their movements should be a little smoother than before -- that is, if fatigue hadn't taken them yet.

In any case, they do spend most of their day leveling -- however, that isn't to say they won't be taking any breaks. Every so often they can be found by the river resting up. Catch them sometime in the evening, and you may even find Kirito dozing off. ]


( Joint post with [personal profile] elucidator! Order will go you → Kirito → Celica. Feel free to catch them when they're on their multitudes of breaks, or when they're defeating mobs to give them advice or to join up. )

First Memory

[Mac Anu]

[First, he takes an admittedly strong and perfectly formed roundhouse to the head. Like that wasn't bad enough. Then, the next thing he knows, he's in this completely unfamiliar place that looked a lot more friendly than Japan (or what was left of it), with new clothes and the only things linking him from his current state of mind and the memories he wished he remembered, gone.

If that wasn't enough to piss him off, it would be a godsend.

Of course, he was pissed. And it shows as he wanders around the place, completely confused despite getting some idea of what was going on. Didn't change how confused he was, or the fact that two plus two equaled seventeen right now. Yeah, he's a little slow on the uptake sometimes. But he's an honest guy. Especially when he vents his frustrations in the middle of public like it was nobody's business.

Like right now. At the top of his lungs.]
Ugh... What a giant load of crap!

✎ Puzzle 001

[Action for Mac Anu]

[Hugging his grimoire to his chest, Clive wanders aimlessly about the unfamiliar city, taking in all the sights. Although he is rather overwhelmed by the unexpected change in location (and attire), he has to admit that this is a very beautiful city. He's never seen anything like it in his entire life.]

It beats being stuck in a prison cell, at least...

[He lets out a sigh and looks around for a bench to sit on; carrying this giant book around gets tiring really quickly. Once he's seated, he sets his grimoire down beside him and digs out a strange device from his pouch. Whatever it's supposed to be, he's rather impressed with the sleek design. Clive spends a few minutes just examining the object before he presses his index finger on the "Touch me!" message on the screen. To his surprise, the screen actually changes to show some sort of menu. It seems that touching the corresponding icons also takes him to different screens.]

What a fascinating little piece of technology. I never would have even imagined that it was possible to build such a device.

[Until he figures out what he should do next, Clive is perfectly content with just sitting here and messing around with the Relic. Touch screen technology hasn't been invented yet in his world, so he'll be entertained by it for quite a while. Anyone is free to bother him, of course.]

[Text]

[Once he discovers the public board feature, he decides to post a very simple message, which... actually takes him some time to type out because what are touch screen keyboards.]

Could someone explain to me what's going on here?

(no subject)

[Meta Knight idles by the Chaos Gate in Lumina's Cloth, eyes darting around hoping to find anyone he might know.

Unfortunately, Dream Land habits are hard to break from and he easily grows bored. He pulls out his Relic and randomly selects from the three keyword columns.]


Today is... "Halberd Failing Ocean"..

[It takes him a moment for that to sink in.]

Accursed...!

[He manages to stop himself from throwing his Relic on the floor. Come on Metty, you're over that incident already. He tries to straighten himself out, looking around to see if anyone witnessed that.]

That would not be a very good area.

o2 ♊ missing file

[in Lumina Cloth]

[a spiky haired Flick Reaper is wandering around Lumina Cloth, slipping in and out of the audience in the stadium. He keeps going back to his Relic]

Dammit-- Where the hell did you go?

[it sounds like he's found some semblance of mental stability though. He doesn't have that slasher smile on his face, for one, and Prometheus isn't yelling at everyone. To anyone who's never interacted with him, Prometheus seemed almost like any other player!]

... [there's a frustrated groan as he mutters to himself ('I hate doing this') with a hand over his face. Looking up again, he walks towards a random stranger before asking]

Have you seen my sister around? Quiet, green hair, red eyes, the same tattoo on her forehead as me.

03. The Warrior of Fire

[Stop by Δ Choosing Unlimited Hand Song today and you may find someone sprawled out on one of the bridges, wearing a pendant or medallion of some sort.

S/he? looks lost, but not in the sense that she doesn't know where she is, but more that this is something she'd been missing for quite some time, and is busy remembering the events of another history.

Too busy, perhaps, to notice a wayward monster? Or are you just curious?]

Second Snows

{ - Δ Unknowing Doomed Dead Wood - }

[Mia thought she might be lost for a moment. The numerous warp points and doors, along with her tendency not to hoard Chim Spheres meant that she often had to backtrack to an earlier part of the shrine dungeon... if she could ever find it. Why would anyone build something like this??

But if you happen to be lucky, in a room built away from the rest of the dungeon, you might catch the end of her staff glowing blue for a moment as she attacks, leaving a momentary splash of milky-white water behind. Clerics like her can't learn Arts, and staves never have special attacks. What could this mystery technique be? (Ivan will of course be able to recognize it as a Djinni attack, if he's watching.)

Later, you could see her invoking some sort of strange creature, which proceeds to scour enemies with some sort of beam. Even she seems surprised, as if she didn't expect it to look quite that way...]

➹fourth flight

[Taking a break from exploring Lumina Cloth, Pit sits down by the wayside to fiddle with his Relic, looking at the device with no small amount of confusion and-- as he's prone to with no Goddess currently present-- talking outloud to himself.]

So... what is this BBS thing anyway? I seriously don't get it at all!

05 Burn on, Shooting Star

["Sneering Black Metal Doll" those are the area words. Here the land is dark, the water is still, the wind howls in the night. It's strange, almost eerie. The monsters that walk around are now stay in groups, only staying in one place. The presence of danger grips is carried by the wind but at the same time, the presence of an ally.

If one looks up they'll see all the stars in the sky piercing the night and among them, an unusual blue star darting from one end of the field to the other. Sometimes it comes down and after a while, it takes off back to the sky.]

Shooting Star )

[After spending a long time puzzling over the hints posted on the board, Shirou's managed to find himself at Lumina Cloth. It's a marvelous town, really, and of course who wouldn't want to explore it? So that's what Shirou's doing.

a. Afternoon

Shirou's standing in front of the Arena signup table, occasionally asking the NPC a few questions about the Arena. Care to join him?

b. text

Anybody want to try to take on the Arena with me?


ooc: backdated to about 4-5 days after the hints were first posted.]

second;

This is--

This is--!!

[so. he glitched out for a few weeks and now? he's respawned in Lumina Cloth.

Lumina Cloth.

it wasn't there yet when he glitched out, so now he's in utter shock (and excitement, he just hasn't realized it yet) and staring at the city by one of the warp points.]





[BBS;text (sometime in the evening)]
O M G

WHEN DID THIS HAPPEN???????


ooc; hi i'm back; will slowly get to old tags ;u;

Third Shot

[Shinon is up to her usual level grinding! But this time she's armed with a new weapon. To fully test it out within the restraints of The World, she can be found in a couple of different situations.]

[Field]

[Maybe you just spotted that group of monsters and were about to go in for the kill. Or maybe you were just enjoying the scenery - it is a lovely day out in this area, after all.

Either way, that group of monsters? The biggest of them just got a large hole blown into its head, even though there doesn't seem to be anybody nearby to make the attack. Before long, the remaining two follow suit.

Those who are observant may be able to trace the shots to a small figure on a different island, armed with a sniper rifle nearly as long as she is tall. Want to go investigate?
]

[Dungeon]

[While she's still carrying that same weapon along with her, she seems to have paused in an empty area for the moment. It's hard to say whether she's just resting, thinking, or both. Now would be a great time to catch her for the curious or talkative, though!]

o1 ♊ system reboot

[he'd been going through field after field, pretty much slaying everything in sight. This was frustrating beyond belief. After all that work previously to get strong once again (but for what?) he'd only found himself here at half strength. Half. Prometheus was used to hardship - was conditioned to expect it and deal it out - but this was ridiculous. Being forced into this sort of position again... What a scam.

So he'd punch in keywords at random, only to scoff at his results. ΔUnseeing Heretic's Camellia? He'd like to cut the moderators to ribbons once he got the chance.

But ha, the last time they did something like that, hadn't ended terribly for him and his sister?

Speaking of his sister...]

[and with a flick of his wrist, Prometheus pockets his Relic after sending that message to his sister. Well, nothing like working out frustration by slaughtering monsters]



[ooc: Cave Dungeon! And so people don't have to worry, there will be no attempts at PKing in this post. 8( He's still doing 'reconnaissance' and trying to get his levels back to par]

I think this thing might be broken.



[Yep, that's all you get.]

Mac Anu

[SPLASH!!

Anyone who might be in the square today may find the unusual sight of Tsubaki by the fountain, arms dipped inside as he tried to search for something. His makeshift tent was situated nearby, one he had been staying in due to the lack of an inn. Why he chose to camp right in the middle of the city, no one knows. Still, that was hardly the dilemma.

Nope, him blindly reaching through the cold waters was the dilemma. Anyone who knows him may also notice he is squinting badly, and he can't seem to focus at all on what he's looking for.]


Just where did it go?

première danse

[walking out of the Chaos Gate is a young Macabre Dancer with red hair. He looks a bit disoriented... And appears to be talking to himself] I can't say I remember ever coming across something as strange as this. Then again, it isn't every day you go to sleep in your own bed only to wake up on a stone floor, is it? Sleepwalking isn't really my thing. Granted, this whole costume gig isn't something I'm foreign to, but I don't think I've ever had to wear something like this. Eh, Fondue?

[he looks down only to find that he was standing there alone]

... Fondue?

[a quick search reveals absolutely nothing. No fur, no bandanna, no pretty poodles for Fondue to woo]

Oh... Where'd he run off to? [he turns to try and stop a passerby] Hello! Excusez-moi? Can I have a moment of your time? 'Allo! I'm a bit lost and it seems like my partner has gotten himself lost as well. Do you know where we are, why I'm dressed like this and have you seen an Altasian Cheesehund around?



[ooc: I have no icons, but I can't seem to bring myself to care. 8T also might be scarce this week, be back on the 21st]
