A digital figure flickered occasionally as it floated in front of a variety of screens. Each screen showed a different person as if viewed from their computer or TV. "hrmmm...yes..they should fit the bill." the faceless figure waved his hand and the screens all disappeared. A window appeared in the wall and the figure floated over to view the sprawling metropolis outside. Buildings flashed with wall sized ads that looked like the typical spam you see on normal websites. Things like, "Best Makeup tips", "Top 10 fruits you did not know were bad for you", etc. There were vendors selling tutorial pamphlets for different vehicles and animal mounts as shoppers looked in through windows at the latest trendy DLC clothes that had just been released. Tapping the red icon in the corner of the window, the figure walked away as the window closed. Going over to the middle of the room, the figure took out a spell book from his inventory and flipped through it. "Ah, here we go." The figure began chanting and the book started to glow. Thunder rumbled and a portal of light opened up in the ceiling. Erik was sitting in his dorm room playing through the campaign of the new FPS blockbuster that had just been released when his screen started to glow. Blinking in surprise, Erik paused his game and looked closer at the strange glow. Suddenly he was sucked into his computer, leaving only his controller behind. A couple hundred miles away, Antonio was working on his music game when his screen started to glow as well. Pausing the music on his headphones, Antonio stepped back in confusion. Suddenly, the screen turned all white and Antonio was dragged across his room towards the screen. Crying out in surprise, Antonio grabbed onto the edge of his bed and tried to escape the invisible force. But it was too strong, soon Antonio lost his grip on his bed and was sucked into his screen as well. As Erik fell screaming through the void, he was suddenly ejected from a portal into a blank white room. Sitting up with a groan, Erik went to run a hand through his hair. But when he ran his hand over his head, all he felt was thick cloth and leather. Looking at his hand, Erik yelped in surprise when he realized his hands were inside thick combat gloves. Looking down at himself, Erik realized he was now dressed in something completely different than what he had been wearing a few seconds earlier. He had on combat armor, a tactical holster rig, combat pants with knee pads, and sturdy combat boots. Touching his face, Erik felt the full face mask complete with night vision goggles. Desperately, Erik tried to pull off his new clothing. But it firmly stayed attached to his body. Beginning to panic, Erik then realized that it still felt like he was wearing his normal clothes. Even though his head was fully encased in a mask, it felt like nothing was there at all. Confused but curious, Erik wondered what exactly had just happened. In another room. Antonio was ejected from his portal and landed on his knees. Wincing as he stood up, Antonio looked around the blank white room. After seeing nothing, Antonio looked down at himself in surprise. He was wearing dark grey sweatpants, flashy red skater shoes, a black sweatshirt and red t-shirt. Suddenly reaching up to wear his headphones should be, Antonio felt large headphones on his head. Putting a hand up to his face, he felt his skin and sighed in relief. But what he didn't realize was that while his face felt human to him. His face was actually a bare skull.
