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.

Josua noticed that the space felt different, telling him that they're now in the "Mirror World". He then gestured Shiroe to sit down on the sit that was on the opposite side of him. He also nodded to Grim, which was also gesturing her to sit down at a seat of a nearby table.

"Let's get this started then." Josua said as he pulled the Musket from his magic bag.

Shiroe was baffled to see something like a Musket. He was a veteran of Elder Tale, so it was pretty much easy for him to guess that this item wasn't made using the system. To be precise, this item isn't something that originally existed in Elder Tale. Josua was about to explain when Shiroe gestured him to halt.

"It seems that it wasn't just me that found out about this possibility." Shiroe said as he retracted his palm.

"Wait... Does that mean..." Josua said before Shiroe answered.

"Yes. Since this is our new reality, it's possible to do something like what we'd do in the Real World." Shiroe said.
"My acquaintance that joined me from Susukino, Nyanta, also found out about this. He managed to make food and drinks that actually tasted like they're supposed to." He continued.
"Granted, my party and I, tried to do the same thing on our way to Susukino. But it resulted in something like a weird paste that tasted nasty, so we initially thought that it was the rule of the world. Apparently, there were conditions that we didn't meet. For starters, it required the Chef sub-class. I was certainly surprised to know that Nyanta had this subclass. The second condition is that the subclass must be sufficiently leveled. If not, they would fail and the food/drink will become that weird paste. And the last one is that the results differ, even though the makers are of the same level." he further explained.

Josua was burrowing his eyebrows, thinking about the information dump that he got just now. It basically confirmed what he had hypothesized, but with more pre-requisites than he had imagined. However, it also opened a door to an unimaginable area, previously unthinkable to him.

"I see... I guess this confirms my initial suspicions." He said to Shiroe.

"But with this, the impact would be more than what people could imagine. I can, but it's so much that it's making my head hurt." he continued, while massaging his temple on the side of his head.

"I don't blame you. I have some other things in mind, but I suppose this really applies to a lot of things." Shiroe said.

"I suppose..." Josua replied.

"Well, I should get going. There's something that I need to do." Shiroe said as he went up from his chair.

"Yeah. Thanks for coming." Josua replied as he shook Shiroe's hand.

"Grim, we're done. Sorry for troubling you." he said to her, as he puts back the Musket into his magic bag.

OOC - Yay! You're back! Also you forgot, that in previous post you wrote: "The three then sat on the upper level of the tavern, which was less crowded and only a few people were there." ^^

Grim sighed, for with mirror world came a long, in her opinion, exchange between the two. Between Josua, and Shiroe guy.
She listened to them of course, pretending to be somewhat asleep, with closed eyes. There were things she had to do, and thing to be shown. So once she heard their chat had come to an end. She couldn't help, but smile.

"Grim, we're done. Sorry for troubling you."jj said, all while hiding away the musket. The other guy, Shiroe... she let out of the mirror world.

"Great jj, also I got a lil surprise. Though you may feel like vomiting at the first try." Without any warning she grabbed Josua, and moved to another place, naturally the mirror world would become no more, once left behind, while they...
They landed in a familar place - their little meeting spot, near the tree.

"I figured it out." Grim grinned, and waited for him to deal with nausea.

OOC- The Players in the New World are immune to any forms of disease.

"Vomit? Why would I-" Josua said before he suddenly changed places in a blink of an eye.

He felt a slight tang in his supposed brain, but it immediately subsided. And from her earlier words, he immediately figured the meanings of it. She had successfully created a Teleportation magic. He then went back to sit near the campfire that was yet to be lit once more. He was certainly caught by surprise when she suddenly grabbed him and they changed location in an instant, but this gave him more stuff to think about.

"This..." he then began typing furiously into Message.

"How much MP did you use?"
"How far can this spell go to from point A to point B?"
"How many people that can be transported at once?"
"Who else knows of this spell aside from me and you?"
"Can it also be used to transport NPCs with us?"

- Those were the list of the questions in the Message as he sent it to her.

OOC - Well, alright, but she actually had a nausea the first time ^^

She stared, listened to his questions after the teleportation, and finally sighed, when she got the message.

"I'm surprised you didn't vomit. I did the first time..." She winced at the memory flashing before her eyes.

"Anyway, the questions. - She took a deep breath - Just a little bit. Second would be anywhere, three depends on how many magic users are involved in teleportation. And who else knows it? Just me, and you."

When it comes to NPCs, that one is yet to be tested. So there's nothing to be said.

"Now, do I really need to send you the message with answers?"
