Julius is, in his opinion, an average-looking person. He stands at above average-heigh and is, to his disdain, noticeable in a crowd. He has pins in his hair put on by his sister that he rarely ever takes out and occasionally wears glasses.

His eyes seem to be lazy and uncaring, but they can be analytical and sharp when he feels he's threatened. His canines are sharp and seem to resemble those of a wolf's, but his teeth are otherwise clean and average.

Julius has the build of a swimmer and holds very littler fat, unsurprising due to his routine. His shoulders are somewhat broad and he can have the appearance of a menacing person with his nearly perpetual expression of anger.

∞ Techniques ∞ "S-e-c-r-e-t"
Techniques colored in blue have already been unlocked/obtained, those colored in red will soon be unlocked, and those colored in gold will be unlocked later on.[/size]

Spells

[size=90]Adagio Redshift - This ability allows Julius' to cast a buff on his targets allowing them to attack quicker or, in layman's terms, reduces the targets' cooldowns on techniques. This ability itself has a cool-down of one minute and lasts for five minutes. Only eight targets including himself can be affected by this spell. This spell can be used at the same time as other buffs. This spell takes 600 MP to cast and cannot be affected by itself.

Feet of Hermes This ability allows for up to eight targets the ability to move twice as fast as they normally would. This can be considered a debuff or a buff depending on the target it's cast on. This spell lasts for ten minutes and has a cooldown of 3 minutes. It takes 450Mp to cast.

Apollo's shield - This spell allows Julius to create shields out of light that can deflect or absorb most damage. The larger the shield he makes, the more time it takes to make and get rid of. A drawback to this is that Julius must manually get rid of the shields otherwise they'll stay there until someone else gets rid of them or he moves them. These shields can be used as platforms. It takes 10MP to create a human-sized shield, 50 to create a shield surrounding a person, and 2MP to create small platforms to step on. Julius can move the shields, but can only due to his level, move one shield at a time. This spell is better used by Light Mages.

Telepathy This spell is one that nearly all mages have when they start the game. It's a spell that allows communication between the caster and the target regardless of relationship. Both parties have to consciously consent to the communication however. This spell is able to be used on more than one target and can allow seamless communication between a group of people. This spell costs nothing to iniate but does cost to keep it up. The MP needed for keeping it up is calculated through the equation, "(2*s)*P" The 'P' respresents number of players and the 's' represents seconds.

Lumen This spell is a simple spell allowing for the creation of a small floating sphere of light that follows the caster, mostly used in dark areas. The obvious drawback for this spell is the fact that it gives off light and can act as a beacon for monsters or other players. This spell, once cast, lasts for three minutes. The cool-down for this spell is ten seconds. It takes 10MP to create one floating sphere. This spell, furthering its drawback as a beacon, will aggro monsters in a 3ft radius of it. This spell is better used by Light Mages.

Magic Missile - A simple combat spell allowing for the creation of a missile that goes towards a specified target. This missile is highly noticeable due to the blue light it gives off. This has a cool-down of three seconds and lasts for twelve seconds before disappearing. This missile cannot change course once launched. The energy required for casting this spell is returned if the missile does not hit a sentient life form. This spell costs 10 MP to cast. Simply casting it however wont do much. This spell also allows for the caster to put in their MP and directly change their MP into damage received by a target. The damage received by the target, should the missile hit, can be calculated by the equation "((MP)*0.5) - (Dot)". 'Dot' stands for 'defense of target'. A target's defense can lessen the damage taken from a missile.

Melog's Toys - This spell allows for the creation of golems. These golems are created out of one of four materials: Fire, water, earth, or air. The size of the golem created depends on the time the caster puts into the spell. If a caster were to put one second into the spell, the golem would be half their size. If the caser were to put two seconds in, the golem would be their size. If the cast were to put four seconds in, the golem would be twice their size. This spell's cooldown is dependent on the time spent creating a golem. The cool-down for the spell is 1/3 the time taken to create the golem.

Elemental Manipulation This spell allows for the use of the elements by a caster, the periodic elements. This spell doesn't require an understanding of the periodic elements, but can be a double-edged sword if the caster doesn't know what they're doing. A skilled magician can easily use this spell to their advantage. The spell only takes 10 MP to cast; but it takes MP away depending on the element you're manipulating. If you were to want to manipulate an element, you'd be able to figure out how much MP it'll take by doing a simple equation. "((Atomic-Weight)100)Γ· (Atomic-number Γ· 2)" All numbers in this equation would be rounded to the nearest whole number.

Semreh's arrows - This spell allows for the creation of kinetic energy and the transferal of said energy. The amount of energy created depends on the time the caster spend charging the spell. If a caster spends one second, then the KE created will be 24 joules. If the caster spends two seconds, the energy will be 48 joules. If the caster spends four seconds, the created energy will be 96 joules. The cool-down for this spell is 1/4 of the time taken to charge the spell. This spell is highly volatile and can malfunction if not handled carefully. If the caster were to lose their concentration, their hands would go in the direction their charging the kinetic energy and with the amount of energy they created. This can kill the caster if not used correctly.
The caster of this spell can transfer the energy they create to other objects or keep the energy to themselves. The way a caster would go about transferring the energy would be by touch. If they were to move the energy to their feet, they could kick with the energy they created. This would however, most likely break their feet if they use too much energy. If the caster were to be holding a sword, the caster could throw the sword with the kinetic energy they stored. This spell costs 500 MP to start; and takes away 50 MP per second for the duration of the spell's charge.

Tsab's Blessing - This spell allows eight targets, including the caster, to see in the dark without any light. The targets' eyes will faintly glow green but are otherwise undetectable. Wearing glasses or contacts to hide the glow is adviseable. This spell lasts for a maximum of ten minutes before having a cooldown of two minutes. This spell costs 700 MP to cast.


∞ Personality ∞ "Neither a hero nor a villain."
"Not benevolent or malevolent, neither good nor evil."
That would be the phrase used to describe Julius if you were to ask a close friend of his.

Julius himself isn't the sort of person to save another person out of the goodness of his heart nor is he the sort of person to kill another person for fun, he's the sort of person to do whatever it takes to survive.

Julius is a sarcastic and intelligent person that may come off as rude. He is a person that finds others predictable and easy to manipulate, but doesn't understand their feelings.

Julius does smile, cry, and have fearful expressions, you'll just rarely see this. He is regarded for his intelligence and ability to make strategies that are usually successful.

Julius uses whatever he has with him to his advantage and will rarely ever back down from a fight. He is not however, stupid. He wont go into a fight he knows he'll lose just to prove a point.

Julius is a judgemental person that analyzes your every move and decides what to do from there. If he concludes that you're untrustworthy, he'll lie to you easily and simply use you as a tool. If he concludes that your trustworthy, he'll use you as a tool and usually tell you the truth. If he has an attachment to you, you can expect to have him doing all he can to protect you short of taking his own life.

Julius, in high school, has taken Engineering and can easily create machines of the mechanical type. He'll most likely use whatever technological shortfalls the world has to his advantage and cause a technological boom if he can, simply to get money of course.

Julius is not the sort of person to be on the front lines risking his life, he is human after all. He instead, likes to be fighting from a ranged position and handling the strategics of the fight.

∞ History ∞ "I don't care how much you're going to pay me, I'm not telling you."
Julius was born to parents that weren't particularly loving nor particularly hateful, they just were. Caesar, Julius's father, was a well-known underworld criminal and spent most of his time doing crime. Lucia, Julius's mother, owned a medical business and was usually out on trips. This meant that Julius rarely saw his parents, but he did see his sister.

Juliet, his sister, was an ambitious young girl that inherited her father's delinquency. Julius and his sister were raised mostly by their family's servants in the Leviathan land, meaning that getting out to see friends was tough. Juliet however, did not let this stop her. Juliet became a popular student in her private school because of her outgoing personality. Julius however, due to his slightly anti-social tendencies, simply became an average student. He, due to having taken martial arts, wasn't bullied as other students were.

Julius however, found fun in video games and eventually became engrossed in them. He did not however, become a lazy person. He learned the skills necessary for his survival and went out swimming on a schedule, so he wouldn't end up lethargic and unhealthy.

He didn't feel a comradeship with his fellow students mostly due to the fact that he didn't see things as they did. They, to his opinion, lied more than he ever did.

On the second to last day of highschool, Julius' history teacher asked the students in her class a simple question. "If you had been alive during Hitler's time, were German, and lived in Germany; would you have joined his cause?" Most students answered that they would stand up against Hitler, while Julius said that he would simply run away. He wasn't going to save anyone nor was he going to hurt anyone, he would just run. The rest of the class sneered, but the teacher understood what Julius was saying. "Stop." The teacher had begun, "Most of you here are wearing what is considered 'trendy' among you, just because others are doing it. You spend hundreds of dollars on clothes with fancy labels on them, just because others do to. Yet you say that you wouldn't follow others. Tell me, if following Hitler had been popular in Germany, would you have stood up against him knowing that others would single you out?" The teacher had been planning on saying that the whole time. That was the day that Julius was sure that he wasn't like other students.

On the last day of highschool, a group of criminals had come to take the student body hostage. The school's power had been shut down and the gates had been closed. The school's inhabitants simply saw it as a power malfunction until criminals broke down the door of every room. Julius however, had been in the bathroom when the criminals had broken in. He had been safe, but he had been able to hear what was happening. Julius exited the bathroom as quietly as he could and saw that there was nobody in the hallways. He assumed that whatever was happening was not simply a power malfunction and looked in through the window of a classroom. He saw students cowering from the gun of a criminal and decided that he would act. He walked away from the classroom and went to his locker. He grabbed a gun he had kept in there, not worrying about the cameras due to the power being off. He had a silencer on the gun, but he still had to be careful.

Julius walked to where his sister had been in class and looked in through the window located in the hallway. He saw the criminal tying the hands of the students, entered the room quietly, then shot the criminal's heart. He would have shot the head, but he wasn't that cruel. The criminal wouldn't be able to have an open-casket funeral if he shot the head after all. Julius motioned to his sister and jumped out the window facing the outside, but his sister spent her time untying her classmates. She had been the only one to have not been tied. Juliet followed Julius after she had untied her classmates and made sure they were okay. Julius simply went home after the incident, while his sister went to the authorities. Julius wasn't a hero nor a villain, he had simply done his actions for survival. Juliet however, was a 'good' person.

Whenever Kreon came out, Julius bought it in the hope of enjoying himself with a new game. He didn't buy it to escape from the fact that he had killed someone, but simply because he thought the game would be fun. Juliet bought the game as well, but simply because she had decided to try out the game.


∞ Other ∞ "My sister bought the game too, but I'm not worried about her."
Julius' sister bought the game too.

Cliche, that was what came to mind when Julius decided upon a word to describe the situation. The whole situation was so damned cliche.

He himself had spent ten seconds trying to logout and had, after those seconds, accepted his fate. He was stuck in a game where he most likely couldn't escape without completing some annoying and tedious quest. "How fun." Sarcasm dripped from his words. He was speaking to himself while walking and may have seemed like a lunatic to others, but his appearance wasn't his main concern.

Julius surveyed the streets of the town he had been in and saw that most others were cowering in fear and seemingly expecting someone to come save them. Julius made a deduction that most of those players wallowing in self-pity would soon die off and either re-spawn, die in the real world, or be logged out of the game. He had no way to know- wait, he actually did.

Julius approached one of these aforementioned players and put on the best facade of sympathy he could, which was pretty well made. "Please don't cry," Julius calmly made these honey-dripped words come out of his mouth. The player didn't respond, seemingly too concentrated on themselves. Julius could have most likely killed the player right then and there, but decided against it. He wasn't a cruel person, necessarily. Julius got on one knee and pulled the player's chin up calmly. The player was, from what he could tell, a female Prime Mage. Julius internally chuckled at this small coincidence but didn't take mind of it. "You wont make it out like this. Please do calm down." Julius forced his voice to be as inviting and calming as he could.

Y-yes, you'r-re right." The girl seemed to have calmed down, sniffling occasionally. Her voice was on the breaking point, but she managed to compose herself. "My name's Elise, t-thanks." She introduced herself, wiping what seemed to be tears from her face. Julius geniuinely smiled, but not for the reason you'd more commonly imagine. He had her at her most vulnerable state. "It's fine, everybody's a little bit shaken up." Julius laughed, a laugh that was full of fake nervousness. "My name's Julius, pleasure to meet you." Julius introduced himself. "S-same. Elise was still a wreck, but Julius didn't particularly care.

"Sorry to be so sudden, but you wouldn't mind mind making a deal with me, would you?" Julius got to the point of what he came to her for. S-sure... Elise was, as all sane people would be, slightly nervous. "I need a person I can count on, someone to share information with," Julius paused and smiled, "would you mind being a contact for me?" Julius wasn't going to ask her to accompany him on a quest. He wasn't going to bring himself down with a nervous and maladjusted ally. "That's fine." Elise's voice seemed to be calmer, almost as if his talking to her had brought her mind off of her situation. Julius sent her a friend request, or the equivelant of so, and was soon 'friends' with the player
Veemo
. Julius waved goodbye and left, removing his fake smile when he was out of sight.

Julius was planning to use her as an experiment. She, in his opinion, would most likely not survive very long. He assumed that he would be able to regularly send inquiries to the girl in the ploy of asking for information and the he would be able to tell if she were permanently dead by a lack of messages. He didn't want to test death and get himself killed to test.




Julius, having employed his tactic with a few other players, soon left the city to find a quest. He expected that he didn't have much time until people started PK'ing, player killing. There was no way in theological hell that the was going to let himself be vulnerable when people started to succumb to despair. He knew(assumed) that he would be safe inside cities, towns, and the such; but he wasn't so sure about the places outside of the aforementioned areas. He'd also need to find a party, he wasn't worried about guilds so early on in the game.

Julius had managed to get a simple quest for killing a few rats, large rats, in an NPC's basement. He had been surprised at the 'humanness' of the NPC and found it pretty amazing. He did not however, sit down and have a chat with the NPC, he planned on doing that later and getting a hold in the world's politics; but he needed to level up first.

Three rats immediately aggro-ed on him, coming in from 3 different directions. Julius suppressed his fear and instead turned it into adrenaline. He loved the thrill of danger, it was one of his flaws, and the game was the perfect place for a person like him. The smile of a predator formed on his lips. Julius used Lumen and cast a ball of light 5ft away from him. The rats attention turned to the ball. He cast Magic Missile twice and put 100Mp into both casts. The missiles had been directed to the rat on his left and the rat on his right. Each rat took 50 damage and ended up with 10HP. Julius did this again, using 20MP separately on both casts instead of 100. The two rats died. The third rat however, caught him off guard and managed to do twelve points of damage on Julius. He had a scratch on his foot but the adrenaline in his body blocked off the pain, for now at least. Julius launched a 130MP Magic Missile at the rat and it died, having taken 70 damage. He lost 420MP and 12HP from the battle. Julius killed 3 more rats; losing 430MP and no health from the other battle. Julius acquired 40 Gold and 120XP total from the rats.

Julius returned to the NPC that gave him the quest and got a reward of 160XP and 250Gold. Julius left the NPC's vicinity and went off the road, feeling wary of being on it. He didn't trust to be on the road and possibly meet marauders.

He traveled mostly undisturbed towards the city, due to most players that would cause him damage focusing on their own fear and sorrow. Julius arrived at a city he nicknamed Arcadia and sat down in a bench near the entrance. The scratch on his leg had, to his surprise, restored itself alongside his Health. His Mana had went up to 3500 but hadn't regenerated completely. He expected it would take a bit more for his MP to regenerate fully, seeing how little had passed between his killing the rats and his arriving at the city.

Julius sat down at a bench in the city that was located near the exit. He didn't feel very tired, but it did feel weird to have did what he had. It was something he'd have to get used to.

...Boring...

That was the word that came to mind when Julius thought of what citizens of the virtual world were like, but he didn't mention this. He wanted them to be grovelling in despair rather than taking their anger out on others. It was easier for him this way. He comforted himself in the fact that he could most likely kill one other player if he were to get into a battle, but doing so would leave him vulnerable, so he decided that he wouldn't confront others violently. It was safer for him this way.

The town was in a dismal state. People were crying and the such, some were forming small parties for survival. No one seemed to be making guilds, so Julius assumed that there was a required level, but he didn't bother asking. He didn't have the luxury of worrying about making or joining a guild, he had to find a party of people he could trust he could manipulate easily.

One person in particular caught Julius' attention, an Adele archer as far as he could tell. The archer(Kenna) seemed to be one of the few players not affected strongly by the strange situation that was occuring. It intrigued him. A smirk played on his face, but he hid it quickly. He needed someone that wouldn't cower at the sight of a monster as his ally, meaning that he couldn't afford to show how much of a 'villain' he was People tended to be put off by his personality.

Julius approached the plant-like girl casually, having heard the girl begin to speak. "Um...Hello? She(Kenna), the girl with red hair ivy seemed uncertain of what was happening in the city. Julius decided that he would introduce himself and begin speaking. "Welcome to this wonderful little city," Julius was being sarcastic, but his voice didn't show so.

"As you can see, the people here aren't very well adapted to this sudden and new life." Julius wasn't lying, most people in the town were a mess. "Most sane people don't take too well being trapped in a game with no visible way out. It would probably be better if there were a hundred floors to beat, but not everything is so cliche" Julius was subtly calling himself 'not sane', but he didn't expect the girl to catch his joke. It was still however, funny enough to make a smile appear on his face.

"Anyway, my name is Julius and I have a request." Julius paused for a second, "Could I join you on this adventure? I wouldn't want to be caught wandering alone and to be quite frank, I have pretty weak health and defense." Julius didn't waste time and went straight to the point. He needed protection, he couldn't be caught alone. That would be too large of a risk, so he had wanted to be with a group of at least two people. He hoped the person would accept his proposal, but he didn't particularly mind. He could find another person, hopefully with a heroic attitude, if the plant-girl didn't accept his proposal. Gullible people weren't all that hard to find.

Sure enough Kenna did pity those standing there with their heads lowered and tears dripping from their faces, but she could not begin to work out why people were in such a state. Was the game that disappointing? Sure enough she had already heard plenty of critique about the gameplay style and so on but if anything it exceeded her own personal expectations. Either way some began pulling into teams that Kenna had heard referred to as a guild, the idea seemed pretty foreign to her but rather interesting. So much social interaction and company would make Kreon much more interesting, but it would be a big change from her usual solo playing tactic.

Suddenly Kenna felt rather lonely.
Then she did not.

The crimson leafed woman felt a pair of pupils lock in her direction, causing her body to flinch slightly and tingles to shock up her spine. Even though being noticed was what her whole persona and character was supposed to do, she still feared interaction with new people. It made her heart thud with excitement and curiosity; her own red eyes turned to briefly meet with that of a brunette male. The tiniest of grins held like a ghost on his mouth before leaving. From the corner of her vision she watched him step closer, and as he did Kenna pushed out her chest a little more and widened her eyes to be more attractive? confident? fake? Even she did not know.

"Um...Hello?" The stranger greeted, his tone too casual than what seemed normal to Kenna."Welcome to this wonderful little city," She allowed a large smile to grow upon her lips but yet she tugged uncomfortably on the material at her waist. "Oh um, thank you." Kenna replied, bowing her head gently.

"As you can see, the people here aren't very well adapted to this sudden and new life."
"Most sane people don't take too well being trapped in a game with no visible way out. It would probably be better if there were a hundred floors to beat, but not everything is so cliche"


...wait...WHAT.

The youth stumbled backwards as he spoke and then began to scan the area again at all the sobbing faces surrounding her. At first a very surprised expression fell on her fair face, and maybe even a cat like curiosity gleamed in her eyes. Then Kenna followed this with a soft sigh of a laugh. It seemed all to far fetched to be true being quite honest, and even when she opened up the menu to exit only to find the only button to leave this place to have vanished, she still did not believe it. "This has to be some kind of hack or something. Oh come on. Stuff like this just does not happen in games like this. It is a joke!" Kenna grinned shaking her head from side to side, yet a dull pain thudded in her lower stomach.

"Anyway, my name is Julius and I have a request."
"Could I join you on this adventure? I wouldn't want to be caught wandering alone and to be quite frank, I have pretty weak health and defense."


"You know you don't sell yourself very well at all. Weak health and defence? And why should I take you on Julius? Won't you just hold me back?" Kenna purred jokily, leaning towards him with a soft smile on her face. She examined him again, clearly he was not much to look at now but maybe later he could get stronger and after all two was always better than one. Accepting would mean help and friendship; why would she say no? "Do you really believe this crap? Who did you get this information off? It should be fixed in a few hours if its a simple bug." Kenna sighed before nodding slowly. "I don't mind pairing up, but only because you are cute. I might need some potions first before we do anything too daring though."

"This has to be some kind of hack or something. Oh come on. Stuff like this just does not happen in games like this. It is a joke!"[ Kenna seemed to have not, from what Julius could tell, been around cities too much or would have most likely already figured out that the players couldn't log out. Julius made his own deductions from here, then kept on speaking.

"Anyway, my name is Julius and I have a request. Could I join you on this adventure? I wouldn't want to be caught wandering alone and to be quite frank, I have pretty weak health and defense." Julius may have been a bit too blunt.(Feel free to ignore this part, just a marker)

"You know you don't sell yourself very well at all. Weak health and defence? And why should I take you on Julius? Won't you just hold me back?" Kenna, the girl that he still didn't know the name of, was more intelligent than Julius had initially given her credit for. Julius would have stood his ground but the girl for some reason decided to lean closer to him, making him inch back slightly."I'm pretty sure selling myself is illegal, but that's besides the point." Julius made a joke that most likely wasn't funny, but he didn't particularly care. He saw a chance and he took it. "Mage's bane." Julius explained everything he needed to in two simple words. Those two words however, did hold a lot of meaning. "I would have choosen a different cla- no wait, I wouldn't have. Mages are obviously the best class." Julius mumbled the last part mostly to himself, hopefully giving Kenna the example that she hadn't been meant to have heard that. Julius had however, completely intended her to hear that. He wanted to give the impression that he was readable and blunt, so he could use this impression as a weapon if needed.

"Do you really believe this crap? Who did you get this information off? It should be fixed in a few hours if its a simple bug." Kenna seemed, to Julius, to be in Denial. He hoped he wouldn't be around for the other stages, assuming she was going through the five stages of grief. "That would have been my first conclusion, but no game developer would let this big of a bug be put in their games. Besides, I imagine that we would have gotten at the very least some sort of notification. I'm not sure how this world works, but I imagine there are 'annoucements' of some sort." Julius stopped speaking. He was going too much into detail. He wanted to elaborate more, but decided against it. He didn't want to bore the other player(Kenna) to metaphorical death.

"I don't mind pairing up, but only because you are cute. I might need some potions first before we do anything too daring though." Kenna called Julius 'cute'. Julius would have been offended for only being paired up with due to his looks, but he didn't really care. "I'm not sure whether or not that's a compliment." Julius stated his opinion calmly. He wasn't blushing or sweating. He didn't find flattery to be all that flatterring. "Anyways, potions,"Julius's mind started clicking and the metaphorical gears started turning. "We should probably go to a store first and see if any sell potions, see if we can afford any." Julius proposed his plan 'A'. "If that wont work, we could go into the wilderness and see if we can get materials to make potions. Or maybe an NPC gives them as rewards." Julius proposed two other plans. He was not however, going to choose between them. "You get to choose what we do." Julius would have done this himself, but he didn't want to seem rude.

"Just do be careful with your choices. You may not believe that this world is unexitable, but that wont stop others from believing that it is." Julius paused for a second, "People can get [b][i]violent
when forced into cages and when ridden with despair. We're probably fine today, but we should still be on the lookout." Julius said this with a calm and collected expression. He planned on hopefully not dying the first day of the game, but probability was against him. Then again, the whole occasion could have just been a bug, but he wouldn't know.

Her skin tingled with unpleasant nerves as he spoke to her. What exactly made him approach her in the first place? He could have picked anyone in this damn place but instead he chose her.

"I'm pretty sure selling myself is illegal, but that's besides the point."He stated. Kenna giggled fakely at his joke, even though Julius's stayed mainly its blunt robotic expression. She bit the inside of her lip awkardly, trying to stay as confident and in character as possible. "That sounds some what sexual." She joked, though her brain was telling her to back off with the flithy jokes; it might have created character, but many people found it uncomfortable it seemed. When she began questioning his worth the male simply replied with "Mage's bane." Which he seemed pretty proud of. She smiled lightly, giving a swift nod. "Suprising, being honest. Adele ranger, though don't see me as your support."

"That would have been my first conclusion, but no game developer would let this big of a bug be put in their games. Besides, I imagine that we would have gotten at the very least some sort of notification. I'm not sure how this world works, but I imagine there are 'annoucements' of some sort."The ivy haired woman tipped her head to the side like a confused puppy, spamming the menu looking for the 'log out' button, only to be greeted with a empty space. She sighed lightly again, looking generally distressed for the first time. "I don't understand at all." Kenna said in a low voice. It did not cause her to panic however. There was not a single thing waiting for her back at home. She could be dead for two days and her Father would only find her once her eyeballs had sank into the back of her skull. If this hard to believe seniro was true, she did not mind too much at the moment.

"I'm not sure whether or not that's a compliment."Julius replied to her describing him with the word cute. She worked on a smile once again. "Cute is a compliment. Unless you are wanting to present yourself as the most masculine thing ever." She laughed, before listening to him explain about potions.

"We should probably go to a store first and see if any sell potions, see if we can afford any."
"If that wont work, we could go into the wilderness and see if we can get materials to make potions. Or maybe an NPC gives them as rewards."


Kenna nodded simply before waving her hand for him either to follow after her or wait. There was a stand towards the back of the square with red and blue bottles sitting politely on the table. They were 50 gold each by the look of it, but only simple in ability. She bought one mana and health potion, grumbling quietly to herself about the gold drop not being worth her health in the last fight before pocketing the pots and turning back to Julius. "I'll use these when I really need them. Is there anything you would like to pick up before we leave?" She questioned.

"Just do be careful with your choices. You may not believe that this world is unexitable, but that wont stop others from believing that it is."
"People can get violent when forced into cages and when ridden with despair. We're probably fine today, but we should still be on the lookout."


The adele shifted uncomfortably when he said this. A sudden flash back to a bad experience with her best friend LSD. A bad mood had over run her highness in the past and endless hours of crying and stabbing at objects with her fists were not something she liked to remeber, but for some reason she always did. Shadows dancing on the walls, the room caving in or even not existing at all. The ball in her throat bobbed. "Yeah I know."

"That sounds some what sexual." She seemed willing enough to play along with Julius' joke, but he wanted to see her squirm. He decided to play the part of a fool and put on a puzzled expression, "i'm not quite sure what you mean." Julius kept his puzzled expression for a few seconds, then let it become a mischievous smile. He didn't want to build any permanent distrust, that would be annoying.

"Suprising, being honest. Adele ranger, though don't see me as your support." Kenna seemed willing enough to step out of predetermined boundaries set by players and to play the ranger as an offensive class. Julius found this interesting, but didn't take note of it. "No worries, I wont." It was simple response to a simple statement.

"I don't understand at all." This was said in response to Julius' rant regarding the game's annoying bug and that it was probably intentional. Her response annoyed him, but he didn't let it show. "You will eventually." He didn't want to bother elaborating, it was a waste of time. After all, the world would soon do it for him.

Kenna bought potions and asked Julius a, in his opinion, stupid question. "I'll use these when I really need them. Is there anything you would like to pick up before we leave?" Kenna asked this. "No shi-" Julius stopped himself from cursing and using sarcasm. "Sorry, stress." Julius played off his near rudeness as stress-related and gave a fake apology. He didn't really care, but it would be annoying to have anger directed at him. "And yes, I do need stuff, but I probably can't get it at the moment." Julius was referring to his very obvious lack of money. Most of the stuff he needed was out of both of their leagues.

"Yeah I know." She seemed uncomfortable speaking about cages and despair. He concluded that she was, as he was, claustrophobic. He noted this in his mind and smirked internally. She showed weakness to him, and he planned on using it if necessary. He did not however, say anything.

"Anyway," He pretended that he hadn't noticed her discomfort, "I have an idea for getting money quickly." Julius smiled like a predator that had caught its prey would, "Taking over the economy by causing an influx of inventions." It was a simple idea, but it was one that probably wasn't being put into effect by others. "To that however, we'll need materials and intelligence." Julius began explaining the finer details of his plan, "I already know how to reinvent most things, but we'll need materials." His shoulders sagged. It was going to be annoying, getting materials. Although it would be worth it. He imagined it, being able to create things not possible in this world. He would be seen as a god in the world by NPCs and as a genius by players. Most importantly however, he would get money. Money equaled power and more powerful weapons. He expected to die, but he expected to have fun before he did. "So, do you know of any places where we can get metal and the such? Or if any monsters drop this sort of loot?" He asked this to Kenna, hoping that she had knowledge that he didn't.
