Character Conversion Successful Loading Worldspace... Worldspace Loaded Welcome to Aetherblade Online! Ruko looked around in amazement. She within the first thousand or so to log on, so it was easy to see the architecture. She appeared to be standing roughly in the middle of a circular pavilion, which could quite easily have been some kind of temple courtyard. It was surrounded by ornate marble walls on 3 sides, with the 4th side overlooking a sky blue lake. After a few minutes of standing around, she decided to work out what she should do first. She was glad to see the menu opening gesture was the same as that in ALO. Her armour and potions were all still there, and Mystletainn also. It would seem that the creators of ABO had decided to include the data sets for ALO and most likely other game's items too. She selected the sword, which materialized and dropped lightly into her outstretched hand. It was an almost weightless weapon, in comparison to most weapons of it's class, weighing about the same as a rapier. She attached the sword's scabbard to her belt, placed a health vial and mana vial in her quick access slots, and sat down, to begin working out this new world's magic. She tried various methods for about 5 minutes, and in the end only managed to come to the conclusion that magic did not need rituals like in ALO, but did seem to involve runes. No doubt mage classes would figure it out in no time, so she decided to leave it to them. She loved VRMMOs. Everyone was playing and starting on an equal footing, and it was impossible for the high levels to run off and leave everyone behind simply because they have no idea what challenge or quests might face them.
