Excitement fueled him as he made his way down the side streets and between buildings. He got the message that he had been chosen for the beta testing of the new revolution of gaming. He could hardly believe it, he was chosen out of so many that had applied. A dumb smile plastered on his lips as he nearly jogged his way to the location. He arrived, the local internet cafe that was tucked between large business' and a few blocks from the large mall. He walked in, seeing a small line of other people that had the same ticket he had and flashing it to a sort of security guard. He tried to calm his excitement and remain calm and casual. A slow, casual stride brought him to the back of the line. Everyone in line seemed as excited as he was. He tried to see if he knew anyone but sadly no one did, but there was people already signed in so maybe he would meet someone in the game. As he inched closer and closer to the front of the line and the state of the art TIS gaming capsule about what he should make himself look like inside the game and what name he should use. He was a gaming enthusiast and decided on naming himself the same thing as all his other characters on other games so that was taken care of already and he hoped it was still available. Now what would he look like? Would he make himself look are huge and brutish or slim and fierce looking. He eventually decided to let himself look like himself in real life, wanting to be recognizable if any of his friends were lucky enough to get the open beta; but maybe give himself that muscular figure he always wanted. He laughed at himself but it was final! He would be the very same, only ripped.
As he came to this ultimate conclusion he arrived at the front of the line at long last. He rose his ticket up and the large, bulky mass of a man nodded and waved him through. He tried to act cool and not dance around in joy like a retard and so far so good. He went down and found an open TIS-capsule. He climbed in and sat down, pressing a small button the capsule shut around him and it was dark at it seal. The soft whirling sound of hardware kicking to life sent shivers of delight up and down his spine like shot of electricity. "Oh man! This is awesome!" He declared just before the entire inside of the capsule light up nice and bright, seeming like he was in a huge white room by himself. Suddenly a little display popped up in front of him with a title of Character Creation. With only a thought the next button lit up as if pressed and he was off. With only his mind he created his avatar that would translate into the virtual world. He made a carbon copy of himself but with a little more defining muscles outlines. He was about to hit complete but he took a second. After a moment of thought he raised his height by only two inches; perfect. He completed the process and now it was the name and he cross his fingers. Within a flash the name began to blink before him in a bright green color signifying the name was available; 'Kreed' was his name.
With a thought it completed and suddenly darkness took over. He felt like he was in a void, he couldn't even feel the seat he was sitting in. Suddenly a warm, dim light seemed to flicker and grow as a world began to grow out from where he stood. The colors blurred and pixelated until they refined and it looked just like real life. They seemed to determine his starting location would be in a dense forest with lush trees and wild life. Only fifty meters from him a deer grazed casually, if it weren't for the faint green health bar above the animal he would have thought he was really in the forest.He was considering testing out the fighting system but a quick inspection made him change his mind. He had no equipment yet. He was in simple cotton shirt and leather pants and simple boots. "Hmm.. I must have to complete the starter quest before I get my gear?" He thought out loud. With a though a display popped up in front of him. He was a bit startled, reaching up he touched around his eyes until he felt something weird. He grabbed it and pulled it off.... glasses? As they were removed the display went with it. He was in awe, this was so cool. He put back on the glasses and with his thoughts went through the different options and checked his inventory, empty. Character equipment page, what he assumed and was common cotton shirt, leather pants and boots with a bunch of empty slots. He closed that panel and opened the quest log and there was only quest available with a light blinking exclamation mark next to the name; 'Visit El Brunel, the Champion City' in nice bold letters. He opened the quest and thought about tracking it. A small display at the bottom left corner of his vision a tiny map appeared with a small directional arrow pointing him in the right direct. He began the simple journey through the forest.
It only took maybe five minutes to get out of the dense forward and find the road that lead to the champion city. As he walked he was astonished with the surreal beauty this new world exuded, it was breath taking. It wasn't long before he walked up the large stone stair case that brought him up to the center of town where a great gathering of other players and NPC's were scattered about; discerning the two by the colored Crystal above their head, silver for NPC and green for players. Trying not to get caught up in the immensity of all the intricate details of the buildings and store shop windows he began to make his way through the crowd towards the quest location.
