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.

Josua listened to her answers to his question, and he understood much of what she said. Granted, restarting the gates with a new spell would be possible. And that ties back to the second matter he explained before: the possibility of doing things by ourselves, not with the game system. However, he then thought again once more.

While it made sense, there's this catch that I'm getting here. Restarting the transport gates isn't exactly a cakewalk, since the amount of power that the gates required was probably an arseload of power. Granted, spells could power the gates, then again, how powerful the mage(s) must be and for how long? he thought for a little after hearing her answers.

"Pffft~ Hahahahahahaha!!!" He laughed when he saw Grim's expressions that were easy to read.

Jesus, this girl is so easy to read! he thought in his mind as he settled down.

"Sorry, sorry. I just never met anyone like you." he said to her after calming down.

"And to answer your question: yes, I understood everything you said." he answered.

"Though here's the thing: We don't know the exact nature of what kind of spell is needed to power the gates. I'm paraphrasing from a certain series here: We need to understand the structure of magic that powered the gates originally and what can be done to make our own version to power it once more." he explained his opinion.

"And we haven't talked about the nitty-gritty of the spell here. Is it a continuous spell? How much MP would be needed to maintain the spell? And for how long? How do we keep it running in case we ran out of mages with necessary MPs?" he then further explained.

"So far, do you understand what I'm saying?" he then asked her.

The moment she panicked, he read it, and laughed... then said sorry? That hurts, she thought.

"Sorry, sorry. I just never met anyone like you." - He said. I avoid people, so no surprise there.

"And to answer your question: yes, I understood everything you said." - At least that's a good thing. Really good thing, I don't want to explain it again... ever.

Finally she relaxed, leaned back, as he continued.

"Though here's the thing: We don't know the exact nature of what kind of spell is needed to power the gates. I'm paraphrasing from a certain series here: We need to understand the structure of magic that powered the gates originally and what can be done to make our own version to power it once more." - Long opinion, and it would be continues, she thought, as long as what happened yesterday is connected.

"And we haven't talked about the nitty-gritty of the spell here. Is it a continuous spell? How much MP would be needed to maintain the spell? And for how long? How do we keep it running in case we ran out of mages with necessary MPs?"

He's still talking? - She blinked - why is he still talking? Ah, well, the answer to that might be found... somewhere? Somewhere in this world, or by experimenting. I'll go with the second - she smiled lightly, then heard another question, and winced.

"So far, do you understand what I'm saying?" Really, do I understand? Yes! I'm a good listener, I suck at explaining things under pressure! She thought, and nodded lightly, All while saying a barely audible yes.

Josua noticed that Grim was less than comfortable when he was explaining his thoughts. Granted, it was long, and it wasn't exactly something that people like Grim would enjoy. He only barely heard a "Yes" from her when he asked her if she understood what he was saying or not. It wasn't like he enjoy explaining a lot of things here, but in this world, any information is basically treasure in the first few days or even months in this new world. Although, pushing such mindset to others isn't something that he would do, mostly he'd just say that it's important to pay attention to things that we'd normally miss and try to think outside the box: just the typical stuff to get people to think creative without pushing them too far. He's not a nice person to always help people, though he's not a bad person to just abandon others helpless either.

"I simply stated my thoughts on those matters. It's long, even though I summarized it, I know." he said to her as he gave her a full apple from his magic bag.

"Are you okay?" he then asked her.

Yes... yeah, I'm fine - she accepted the apple, and without hesitation took a bite. She didn't want to tell him that, she didn't want to tell anyone about it. And it is definitely not a reference to "It" book, or movie, though she loves both.

Do you... by chance have any mage staff, that I could use? Kind of embarrassing, but mine... is lost. - Staff called Lost, is lost. Best left hidden from him, it would sound dumb, and... who names staff Lost? Probably no one. Well, expect for her friend.
