LOIAN certainly earned its namesake, especially the illusions part. While waiting for a response from Callus, Fastus had traversed his player planet, looking for his gateways. Though only a few imps were present, the world was still quite difficult and full of obstacles. When Fastus walked through what he thought to be the first gate, he soon found that it was actually a sheet of glass with a picture of the first gate drawn on it. He searched every section of LOIAN that he could, finding chests of grist and boondollars instead of any sign of the real gateway. This was proving to be most tiring. It suddenly occurred to Fastus that if he reached the second gate before any of the other players reached the Medium, he would be unable to advance further. He groaned at his stupidity. Exploiting a bug in the game to get this far ahead as quickly as possible had its downside. His computer was still out thankfully, since Fatus had no idea when RH would get back to him. After a quick calculation of who he should choose for his server player, Fastus opened the laptop and contacted one of the members of his group.

valdephonousHost [VH] began pestering smilingUsuper [SU]

[VH]: Greetings Miss Howard.
[VH]: I hate to bother you at the moment, but I am currently in a...predicament.
[VH]: Your assistance is required for me to progress any further in the game.

[SU] Good morning, Host.
[SU] I will try to help in any way that I can.
[SU] You've got impeccable manners, btw

[VH] Thank you. Well then, is it possible that you could connect to my session as my Server Player?
[VH]: Although I have found a backdoor into the Medium, and entered it that way, I have no way of advancing without...erm...
[VH]: Without your help.


Fuck, he hated to admit that. Rule number one, the thing he had remember all these years of having to fend for himself in a cruel world, was to never show weakness. Fastus had learned that the hard way, from the fists of the bullies in his orphanage. Never show weakness, ever. Not to your enemies, not to your supposed friends, not even to yourself. Anybody could betray you, no matter who they are. The rules of the jungle are that the weak die out while the strong survive. That was true here as well, and everywhere. Display even a slight break, a tiny crack in yourself, and they will rip you apart.

[SU] I wouldn't mind that at all. *smiles*
[SU] Though, I am rather new to the game so...
[SU] Please don't get upset if I do something wrong. *nervous smile*
[SU] But I will do the best I can. Shall we?


Fastus did his best to not become attached to this kind young lady. He continually reminded himself of what he had planned for the lot of them once this game had reached its final moments. As much as he hated to think about it, it would be even harder still to get himself to do it. Betrayal was not an easy thing to stomach, even if you are the one organizing it. Well, especially if you are the one organizing it.

[VH]: Yes. We shall.
[VH]: And Keni?
[VH]: Thank you.

[SU] You're more than welcome.
[SU] *smiles and pulls on gloves* Let's do this thing!


His computer connected to Keni’s, the only slightly needed server player’s presence activating both of LOIAN’s gateways.
