Introduction

May 3rd, 2018
The MMORPG Elder Tale.

The game world was made using the Half-Gaia Project, in essential halving the distance of travel that we would originally have in reality. With the entire world divided into 13 servers, and changing into another server is as simple as using a transfer gate, the game gained traction significantly since its inception. Each server has its own unique class for the region.

While most of the regions would use a Pay-2-Play scheme (game and subscriptions must be bought), only one is known to be Free-2-Play and has microtransaction (Korea, likely referring to South Korea). It has 20 million players globally since its launch in 1998 by the Los Angeles-based company Atharva Inc.

And now, its twelfth expansion pack, Homesteading the Noosphere, was released, with the Japanese server to get it. Then, without any sign/warning, around 30,000 players in the Japanese server alone, were trapped inside the game. It was also estimated that the amount of players from the rest of the world, when combined with the Japanese, that got trapped in the game when the new expansion went live were about 700,000 players.

The trapped players were initially confused, scared, and angry. However, as time goes by, some rose up to deal with the situation. Some dealt with the problem by creating a governing body to keep their fellow players from doing further harm to both fellow players and the Non-playable Characters, or as they are called in this world: the People of the Land. Of course, the whole ordeal, which would be known as the Apocalypse or the Catastrophe later on, also affected the NPCs. They gained their own personality, memories, backgrounds, etc., or in other words: they've become Human, or at least they're no longer simple beings with pre-programmed lines and actions.

While the main storyline focused on Shiroe and many of his acquaintances, ours will follow along, but as one of the sides that were never really explored. What of the others that were not as calm as Shiroe, or as optimistic as Naotsugu? Those who are not able to cope with everything that has happened?

This is our story, as we delve into the darker side of Log Horizon.

Pat, pat, pat - his behaviour was getting on her nerves. Though she won't say a thing, not yet. Not while he's talking at least:

"I suppose we're done for the day though. Feel free to go somewhere else if you want, or stay here if you wish."

She opened mouth to say something, but then... then he just left with Call of Home. Left... in mere seconds she opened the window, clicked "create message" and then she paused. This is dumb, she thought. I hate him far too much, guess I've been too composed these past few days... - she sighed, intent on letting off some steam... in a crazy way.
In next few days there would be a growing number of adventurers, that encountered a crazy sorcerer with strange spells... that blew up people. Yes, blowing up people... and some ocassional rocks, and trees, was all she did.

OOC - So... I'm out of ideas as you can see, though it does fit her a bit, since she's a bit of crazy one.

A few days has passed since Josua did anything proper. He's mostly experimented with trying to improve his firearm, which has been going on a bumpy process. The lack of machinery that helps in forming the rifling for the barrel was certainly not helping at all. Despite that, however, he managed to refine the outwards of the firearm, making it closer to look like a modern rifle, probably like a typical bolt-action rifle that was commonly used during World War 2. The slight difference was that he knows how a magazine functions, and while he managed to make some, it was hard because of making the spring needed to help feed the rounds up were a pain in the arse for him, with his hands being a tad big and all, and the spring being thing and small. He then would make more modern tools to help him, like pliers and other stuff that would be functional for him.

He ate mostly ingredients (like fruits and vegetables) and drank normal water, just to keep himself from getting disappointed over the tasteless food and other drinks that were available. He'd often walk around the city to daze off and keep himself somewhat entertained.

At one time, he contacted Shiroe, who was, with his party, on the way to Susukino in place of his acquaintance for a certain task.

"Shiroe. How's that errand going?" Josua asked him shortly after beginning the voice chat.

"Ah, we've finished it a little while ago. We're on our way back now." Shiroe replied.

"Wait, what? That was fast..." Josua said, shocked at hearing the reply.

"Well, I met an old friend of mine. Thanks to him keeping the girl safe, we were able to leave faster than what I thought earlier." Shiroe explained.

"I'm sensing there's a complication during the process?" Josua asked.

"Yes. Brigandia's Guild Master, Demikas, had added the girl as a friend. He could track her from his friendlist. That's why my friend has been sheltering her since then." Shiroe answered.

"Wow. She's quite lucky, that's for sure." Josua said.

"She sure was. I'll be back in probably a week or less." Shiroe then said.

"Ok, sure. I have something that I need to tell you, but I suppose I'll wait until you're back." Josua said.

"Yeah, same here. I managed to learn something new as well. I guess this is a goodbye for now?" Shiroe said as his finger hovered above the end call button.

"Yeah. See you later." Josua said as he ended the call.

About several days later
Josua met Shiroe at a tavern in the city. The two had planned to meet after Shiroe returned for a discussion on some matter. Josua also asked Grim to come with him, since he need her unique spell, for the sake of discretion. The three then sat on the upper level of the tavern, which was less crowded and only a few people were there.

"Okay, let's get this underway." Josua said as he gestured towards Grim to activate her spell.

She winced, still bit sceptical about this whole charade - that Josua seemed to like to call a meeting. Nonetheless she snapped the fingers, and there they were... in a mirror world. Where no one could hear their screams, kinda like in space - she thought.
She only hoped it would be interesting, far more interesting than blowing stuff up. Cause she got bored of the latter not so long ago.

— You two can talk now. — She said, while her head rested on the left palm — Just please... don't bore me to death.
