The wind blew gently past Crimson as the morning came once again. How long had it been he wondered? Since he had entered this game of life or death? Since he had lost she whom had been closest to him? It felt like decades, though in reality he believed it was in and around a year... not that he could tell, he had given up on silly things like time keeping ages ago. Oreki shook his head gently from side to side. "I suppose it's true isn't it? I've always had a problem with thinking too deeply on the past... in fact I think that's what I was doing before I fell asleep on this... oh." Upon closer inspection Oreki realized he was lying down on an admittedly flat and comfortable wall in Dol Donna... to his left was a field of dew covered grass and to his right was a trodden dirt path... had he really managed to fall asleep in such an awkward place? Such behavior was dangerous, he realized... sleeping out in the open, even in a root town, was ill advised... then again he had no home apart from the guild home... and he didn't exactly have the money to splurge out on an inn. Hmm... maybe a wall really was as good a place as any. Oreki sighed as he realized he would probably have to start raising money for a residence, using the guild felt cheap and he doubted any of his guild mates would appreciate it if he tried to hunker down with them.

With a large stretch Oreki yawned and leaped from the wall to the ground with a sort of renewed vigor to face the day ahead."Alright! Lets get stuff done today!" With those words he quickly began to pace through the town of Dol Donna, players who recognized him either smiled and waved or looked away with fear... a testament to his sort of split personality that he was becoming somewhat famous for. Silly people... he wasn't fighting so why should they be frightened? Honestly it's not like he was a time bomb ready to blow. With a mild-mannered shrug Crimson brought up his player menu and began to flick through the messages he had received so that he might jog his own memory somewhat as to what exactly it was he was supposed to be doing. "Hmm alright let me see... investigate rumors of game masters... tag team partners... big lead, could actually be them for once... right. A tag team duo had apparently been quickly rising through the ranks of the tag team tournaments listings with incredible speed. It was almost obvious that they were actually the game masters in disguise but... that's exactly why Oreki had reservations. The game masters had hid themselves away for so long... why would they suddenly appear like this? Why would they make their identities so obvious? It didn't add up.

Regardless this was the best lead "The Silver Lyre's" had gotten in quite some time and as such Oreki was more than willing to look into it. Still how would he go about this investigation? He supposed that above all else the best first step that he could take would be to talk to these tag team partners directly. If he got them alone and managed to have a direct word with them... maybe he'd be able to suss out some information? It was as good a first step as any. Alright, next problem... where would he find these tag team superstars? The most obvious location would be the site of the tournament arena in Lumina Cloth, but he didn't want to set out on such a journey without some solid intel. For the time being he decided that the best course of action would be to ask around Dol Donna for information... and if possible maybe get some help from his fellow guildees... if they were around. "Alright then." He would say with an inward grin. "Let's get to work!"

Antoine's eyes snapped open to the sound of the wind whispering between the trees. The breeze that entered his room brought the scent of the trees and flowers that surrounded his abode and it made him feel like he was being embraced by mother nature herself. "When did mom plant lilies in the garden?" he mumbled lazily as his eyes drooped low again, only to be snapped open at the feminine voice that escaped hks lips. He sat up, panic gripping at his chest, as he looked around him. Why was everything so clear? He didn't even have his glasses on yet. The room he was in held none of the childhood memories he had in Canada, nor did it have any of the multiple computers he so often immersed himself in. The furniture around him screamee strangely native with a touch of modern. That couldn't be right. Perhaps he was at a friend's house. No, that wasn't possible as he didn't have any with a room as jarring as this. And where had that feminine voice come from?

It was then that his eyes fell on the intricate crossbow hoisted on the wall and the two oversized gatling guns just below it. EDEN, he suddenly remembered. He was in a game called EDEN where he could be what he couldn't in the real world. He looked down at his body, the body of his character, Valkyrie. He was different here, completely different.

With a smile, Valkyrie jumped down from her bed and went to a nearby body length mirror to examine herself. Her green hair was pointing in all directions, the epitome of bed hair, but her emerald eyes were bright and clear. Her hands fell to her legs, the very legs that were propping her up steadily. Not a day would pass where she didn't feel amazed at how she could walk in this game. Amongst all that happened, it was the best to come to Antoine's life. Valkyrie shook her head at the sudden onslaught of melancholic feelings and proceeded to grab her weapons from their holdings. Thrill and Trick. She'd worked hard to make them as powerful as they were now and they'd never let her down before. Something told her that today was not the day they would begin to. She strapped them to her back and grabbed her crossbow next, Apex. Apex was a relatively new addition to her armory, but that didn't mean that it hadn't seen its fair share of battle. It was prime for hunting as it was definitely quieter than Thrill and Trick, something she definitely appreciated. She pushed a button and watched as the crossbow caved in on itself, turning into a small, more mobile version that she hung on her waist. She checked herself in the mirror again before running a hand over her hair, effectively pushing it back into place.

~Bee Loop Bee Loop ~ You've got mail~
"Everyone meet in the guild @home. I have a plan for looking into the tag team I told you all about." - Raijin

Valkyrie read through the guildmaster's message and and sighed. Honestly, she didn't think that the tag team was the game masters. If they were, then they'd have made things way too easy and she knew that with game masters, nothing was ever too easy. The cat and mouse game they'd had them playing for months now was proof of that. They wouldn't be too stupid enough to make themselves known in game. Or perhaps, that was what they wanted people to think. She shook her head. It was too early for psychology. She would just follow Raijin's lead and, if they did manage to find the game masters, then she'd just wish to be allowed to stay in the game. It would also be fun to win at the hunting game.

"Got it!" She quickly hit send before running out of her @Home. she ran to the pier where, just to her luck, a boat for Mac Anu was about to depart. She slid between the throngs of people crowding around the boat and thankfully managed to haul herself aboard, receiving quite a few reprimands from some of her fellow passengers that she simply ignored.

~ Bee Loop Bee Loop ~ You Got Mail ~

--Opening--


"Everyone meet in the guild @home. I have a plan for looking into the tag team I told you all about." - Raijin

"Oh? Well would you look at that." Crimson was sitting comfortably on the mornings first boat bound for Mac Anu, still docked in the Dol Donna port, when the message came in. He had planned to try and run into his guild master in the beginning town regardless, but by some twist of fate it would seem that everyone had been summoned to the guild hall regardless. "How convenient... I'm glad that our guild master is the kind to little briefs like this before moving forward, makes things much easier... might even be why we're so well known at this point, now that I think about it." Crimson tapped his fingers gently on the edge of the boat as he thought of an appropriate response. He didn't really have anyone to talk to... so anything he had said had been entirely to himself. Not that anybody else on the boat seemed to mind... after all, he took this same voyage nearly every morning and most everyone else did too, so it was no wonder that the others passengers were paying the happy go lucky player no mind. The boat journey was a quick ride, not taking more than a few minutes... but Crimson still liked to fill the time, be it by reading a quick book... or having a chat, be it with another passenger or himself.

-Compose Message-

"I'm on my way now, guild master Raijin. I should arrive in Mac Anu in a few moments... the train to Breg Epona may take a little longer of course, but I'll try to be at the guild before morning is out! ~Crimson"

-Sent!-

Crimson then stretched out his arms and legs before letting out a big yawn. He sat alone in a single booth. The boats were quite large and allowed many passengers and the seats were divided into little segments with two seats facing two adjacent seats. Despite being known for helping the innocent, Crimson had also managed to obtain a bit of a reputation for being, well, somewhat psychotic on the battle field, as such most players tended to avoid him. Some simply didn't agree with his disregard for human life, others found it annoying how peppy he acted when outside of combat and the remaining majority were just terrified, thinking they'd get on his bad side. Oreki was aware of the people's general distaste for him, but he didn't mind... he was doing what he felt was right and that was more than enough reason to continue acting in the way he usually acted.

Opening his inventory, Oreki was about to pull out a new skill book he had purchased on alchemy... when suddenly he heard a slight commotion and stayed his hand.

"H-Hey! Watch it lady! I don't wanna drown today!" "What is with you? God?" "There's enough room for all of us you know!"

It was odd... but somehow Crimson had a fairly good idea of whom was causing the commotion in question and sure enough, within moments he was proven right as his guildmate Valkyrie pushed her way through the still boarding crowds. He didn't exactly approve of such behavior, but she wasn't really hurting anybody... just being impatient, so he didn't bother scolding her in any way. Instead he smiled warmly and waved his hand in the girls general direction, gesturing for her to come over.

"Ooooiii! Valkyrie. In a rush eh? Here, there's a free seat... well three of them but, eh." The red haired young man was almost embarrassed by the fact that he was sitting alone, but not so much that it was an issue for him. "I'm guessing you got the Guild Masters message aswell then?"

Valkyrie heard the people's complaints as she practically shoved them to the side, causing almost a few to wobble overboard. She called out an insincere sorry to them, grinning cheekily as she did so. It only seemed to rile them up even more as some tried to pull her back, but she quickly maneuvered around them, securing herself on board the ship. She stood above them, sticking out her tongue petulantly. "Up yours."

That was when she heard her name being called out by a familiar voice, and the grin was already on her lips as she turned around to see the red haired boy. "Crimson! Hey!" she called out in the same overly enthused manner. She walked over to where he was sitting alone, with three empty seats beside him. "Thanks for saving me a spot." She raised her fingers in a salute before plopping down beside him, taking up all of the three seats. In an attempt to tease her guildmate, she settled her boots on his lap and threw him a thumbs up.

Crimson was one of the few people that Valkyrie liked in the game. Sure she liked all the other members of the Silver Lyre, but she always seemed to have the most fun when she hung out with him. Or maybe it was all in her mind. Ha. She was glad she stopped herself from erupting in laughter right then and there. Damn, she was hilarious, even if the only person to agree was her reflection. Meh, haters gonna hate.

She flicked a few strands of hair away from her face before focusing her attention back to Crimson, "Yeah I got it. Do you think the lead's right this time?" She settled in her position more, tucking her hands beneath her head. "Cause I really don't. But, heck, it's worth the try, right?" She nodded to herself, as if in agreement to her own sentiment. It seemed she always did that... agree with herself. Whatever, it didn't really matter much to her. She was having fun and that was all that mattered.

A sudden and horrible silence enveloped the vessel as it finally took off from the port. People watched as the girl so desperate for a place aboard the ship boldly lay across the man who bore the title of "Shadow"... a silent and brutal killer in the eyes of most. This man was known for talking to himself frequently and drawing out the deaths of his opponents slowly... so as to relish in their suffering. This figure, feared for this reason and many others had been left alone by the others out of fear and yet here comes a brazen young woman, bold enough to use his lap as a footrest? The crowd held bated breaths as they prepared for bloody murder and, most likely a capsized boat.

"Aha... I was hardly saving the spot... more just the people in Dol Donna know me well enough to try and avoid me." A sigh of relief resounded throughout the crowds as Crimson only smiled and returned the thumbs up as his friends feet were thrust without hesitation onto his lap. He didn't really care, he liked Valkyrie and knew her well enough to be more than comfortable with such close quarters as she was providing. "Ah but... you're welcome regardless... especially considering you seem to be making use of my seat aswell." He sighed gently in a sort of exasperated way, but he made no movements to push her off of him. He was too nice to do that.

Crimson reached over Valkyries legs and opened up his inventory once more... anyone peaking at his menu would see pages filled with various potions, poisons and medicines of all kind... an ode to his alchemy skill no doubt. After flicking through a few tabs of items that he really had no use for at that moment in time, Crimson finally reached his destination, stuck haphazardly between the icons for a basic healing poultice and a deadly paralysis tonic was a brand new skill book for high level alchemists, Crimson had received it as a reward for a quest and was quite happy when he realized the tomes rarity. It was entitled "The beauty poison enhanced blades." and it allowed the reader to apply poison to a variety of blade like weapons so as to transfer their effects directly to an opponents blood stream through cuts and grazes made while attacking. Crimson was sure that it would make his already impressive weaponry and tactics even more deadly than before.

Once the book was poofed out of his inventory and sitting comfortably in his hands, Joshua began flicking through the pages as he answered Valkyrie's question. "I wouldn't know about the authenticity of this lead... I mean it seems rather unlikely to me that the guild masters would so openly display themselves for the World... especially when they're supposed to be "hiding in plain sight" so to speak." Crimson nodded solemnly, like an old sage. "But there is a chance... especially considering rumors of these two players strength. Crimson lurched forward slightly and frowned briefly as the now moving boat thudded against a river bound log. Sometimes they made the game TOO realistic, in his opinion. "Either way... I respect the Guild Masters decision to pursue this further. I suppose we'll just have to see what happens eh?"

Comfortable darkness surrounded the room- not the pitch black of night nor the pathetic attempts at blocking the sun out with curtains, no. It was the dim light of a seemingly stormy morning that seeped through the blue-grey blinds at the windows, bathing the room in just enough natural light to be able to discern everything there, but with such an eye-pleasing darkness that allowed continued sleep. Gentle bird calls chirped in the distance, and it was so quiet in the area that the flutter of wings and the soft brushing of wind could be easily heard.

The sweet smell of nature- of freshly dewed grass and hints of watermelon, of the clean invigorating scent of the breeze as it lazily winded through Dol Donna seemed forever present no matter where you went in the town. It was why Rune loved the area so much. With a huff of air, Arch Rune scrunched his face a bit as he shifted in bed. His eyes cracked open slowly, and he blinked away the sleep that clung to his mind.

Pulling himself up into a sitting position, the sheets slipped off of his form to pool at his legs while a yawn occupied his lips. He shivered slightly, and his eyes narrowed. Had he left a window open last night? No… when had he taken his shirt off? He glanced down at his chest and abdomen, finding his torso bare. However, he wasn’t completely without covering. His lovely hoodie was draped across his arms, and the strings tapped calmly against his skin with every twitch of his body.

Another yawn split his lips, and he lifted a loose fist to his mouth as he stretched. Pulling the large hood over his head and running his fingers against the line of his face mask- one he never took off unless eating- he let out sigh and leaned back on his arms. Unfortunately, something rather annoying split the otherwise peaceful, quiet, and dim morning.

Rune squinted as a bright light suddenly flashed in front of him followed by a gentle bell chime. ~A Letter Awaits~

Rune scowled at the intrusion of his morning, and did not even bother to open the little popup box that pulsed before him. Food came first, not messages. It didn’t matter who sent it, he wasn’t going to open it until he deigned to do so.

Socked feet thudded against the wooden floor as Arch Rune rose from his mattress with another yawn, soon shuffling past his bedroom to the kitchen. Morning light filtered through the unobstructed windows, dappling the floors with the shadows of leaves and the occasional jitter of some small creature or other. He liked that there were no annoying shouts of other players, that the smoke and exhaust that filled the other towns was nonexistent, and that no one would pass by his windows on crowded streets and decide to take a peek inside. That was the beauty of Dol Donna.

Grabbing an apple from a nearby basket, Rune set it down on the counter, grabbing a cooking knife before the sequence began. He made quick work of slicing it into very thin straps, soon putting it into a bowl and beginning his light breakfast. As he ate, he finally brought the message box back up, swiping a thumb across the newest message.

*’If you want to go on an adventure, just let me know~ I need people to go to the forest area~!’ Cielo.*

A subtle smirk pressed into his lips beneath the cloth that hid the bottom portion of his face. That was a laugh, Cielo didn’t need anyone. He was a game master after all, he could do whatever he wanted, get whatever he wanted, at the push of a button. But it was reasonable, Rune figured, because having that kind of power was beyond boring. What was the point of the game if you already had everything, if you didn’t have to work for anything?

Rune tapped in his own reply.

>”Only if you’re heading to the higher levels. Anything less is a waste of both of our time. You know I find messaging dull, tell me where to head so we can talk in person.”- Arch Rune.
