Tyler Reele Tyler had gotten the new VRMMORPG after his closest friend, more like a sister to him really, asked him if he would get it with her. Both of them had pre-ordered the game as soon as pre-ordering was available, and though they purchased it within the first hour it was out they almost didn't receive a copy. He figured this game was supposedly like some other game because the way Mary talked it seemed like she had played it dozens of times before. She said she played MMORPG's all the time and found a lot of extra stuff out by reading everything that she could get her hands. Mostly things BETA testers posted about it. He had gotten home only minutes before 4:00 with his VR headset and game in hand. Quickly he booted up his computer and started the installation. It only took a single minute for the game to be playable. The game had a live stream option which he used as soon as it was available. It was a simple trick, the game would download everything you needed to play the first floor before letting you play and as you play the first floor it would install the rest. After all it would take a while to get passed the first floor. According to Mary the BETA testers had a hard time fighting the boss. He slipped the headset on and laid down on his bed before closing his eyes and saying the command, "Connection Link!" The next thing he knew he was opening his eyes to a bright blue sky. He, along with dozens of others, was laying down in the middle of a large town square. It took him only a moment or so to get used to moving around in this world, for he found it was much like the real one, and before he knew it he was passed the tutorial and was typing in a user name. As a reward for finishing the first 'quest' he was given a starter pack which consisted of 1,000gp, which wasn't really a lot, five health potions and a mana potion. A friend request popped up in front of him and he scratched his head. "Roseheart?" He mumbled to himself thinking. It sounded familiar... "Oh Mary!" He said clicking accept before sending her a message, "Hay! I will meet you at the northern gate when I'm ready to go out and fight some Monsters." Quickly he made his way around the city, stopping at the church to learn some spells before rushing off to the general market to pick up raw materials. He was going to make his own equipment figuring later on it would be a useful skill to use. Instead of keeping some safe money stored away he spent every gold piece he started out with and started to craft and craft and craft. When he was done he sold his lesser items and equipped a rather large staff and a black robe via his inventory. He liked the idea of everything being a perfect fit, he wouldn't have to worry about resizing things if he was to start up his own market later on. He rushed over to the norther gate getting lost only once or twice, still trying to get used to his map, before making it to the large wall. "Hurry up!" He shouted over to his friend as he went to run threw the opening only to be repelled backwards. "What?" He said surprised. Slowly he stood up and placed his hands on an invisible barrier. He frowned at her when he found out they wouldn't be able to leave the town till six, "That sucks." He mumbled before sighing as she said she would log out. "You do that, I'm going to sell my extra stuff to other players so I can level up my crafting some more. He had turned to leave before he heard what she said. "That guide said it was right-" He said opening up his menu to show her but she was right. It wasn't there. "Oh..." While she called the GM he started to look threw everything he could find hoping to spot where the log out button was located to no prevail. Mary HeartShe had no problem downloading the game, with a computer like her's it took but a few moments before the entire application was downloaded and installed. Without a moments hesitation she put on her VR headset and was waking up in a brand new world. It took her only a moment to get threw the tutorial and she quickly added Tyler, whom was already online. She frowned a little not knowing how he got on before her. Tyler messaged her fairly quickly and she smiled a little, "Sure thing." She typed back, "I will get ready myself." She put away her menu before running around to the local shops and barracks gathering things she needed and checking out what she could improve. She already knew her way around this city, after all she spent time to memorize the map. She wanted to be the first one to beat this game and she had everything she needed to get a good head start. It wasn't long before she was at the northern gate, but when she went to walk threw it some invisible force stopped her. At first she thought it was some trick another player was playing on anyone who tried to walk threw but then an error sign popped up saying restricted area. Quickly she checked the server status and that explained everything. All the players were trapped in the city for the first couple hours, that way everyone can get their gear and get ready to start. She frowned, that was the dumbest thing she heard in a while. Still it was good to be back. She watched with a smile as Tyler ran up and hit the wall. At least she didn't full out run into it like he did. She giggled a little as he stood up and put his hands on the wall, "We are trapped in the main city." She explained to him, "We will be until about six which means we now have," She checked the time in her menu, "An hour and a half to waist." She sighed, "I'm going to log out for an hour or so. I'm going to take a bath and eat something that way we can play way into the night." She smiled and navigated to where the log out button was. Only to be surprised, "Hay, its not there." She said clicking the empty spot where it was supposed to be. She hit the 'Call GM' button only to get no reply. "Great..."
