He had been among the chosen, Mude finally had the chance to bring his family honor as he would climb the tower, though at first he had his doubts but all that was erased as he entered the second floor's first test. A large field with a bright shinsoo sky above and shinsoo wind blowing a great breeze through the area, it was a serene view and a beautiful place. Above there seemed to be a floating fortress of some sort, though it was surprising to him that it was floating, it wasn't much to look at and so for the time being he ignored it. Mude had looked about, seeing a few other people around him, some younger and some older, though many belonged to the latter group. He sized up the group, not wanting to make much conversation but being just a shy, but before he could begin to truly admire how it looked he heard the announcer's voice, it boomed as it came from everywhere, giving them vital information and instructions. Now Mude wasn't the brightest star in the universe so it took him a bit of time to grasp what the announcer was trying to instruct them to do, or even hinted at a solution to the number problem, even after hearing the scream from someone in the field. 'Can't we just solve this problem using math?' Mude began to walk, his sword strapped to his waist and mumbling to himself as he slowly passed through the grass of the field. "If there are 500 regulars, and 60 control points......hmm......carry the one......."
As he was deep in thought he managed to ignore the dead bodies and fighting around him, his foot splashed in the blood of a fallen regular who seemed to have been cleaved cleanly in two. "Thats........eight regulars to a control......point......oh, so we have to beat 5 people to control the point." Mude looked up in a bit of amazement, but looking up was the only thing that saved him, a slight glimmer of light caught his attention in his peripheral vision to his left, to anyone it could have been just light from somewhere reflecting, but Mude was a trained swordsman, so the light was a distinct indicator of a blade.....one that was aimed at him. His reflexes had him moving just as he seen the glimmer, ducking underneath the strike meant to behead him, he instinctively withdrew his blade from it's sheath with his right hand and sliced from left to right, disemboweling the attacker. "I'm sorry and I'll pray for your safe passing....but as an attacker and defender, we must be prepared for death...." He turned from the body and continued to walk, sheathing the blade and continuing his searching for at least one of the shinsoo markers.
Before the first 10 minutes finished, he located one, it was being guarded by a large reptilian creature that largely resembled a rhino. For it's weapon of choice it held a large wooden club, and Mude could see the devastating effects it would have on a body as the area was fresh with victims. 'This wasn't even done with caution, it was relentless murder.......fine!' He moved into view of the rhino, both meeting eyes but with different facial expressions. The Rhino smirked viciously and was giving off strong murderous intent, saliva dripped from it's mouth as it hungered for more victims. "So more cattle have come to the slaughterhouse huh?! Muhuhuhuhu! GREAT!! I WAS GETTING TIRED OF EVERYONE AVOIDING ME! MMMMUUHUHUHUHU!" However, despite the rhino's crackling voice and disgusting laughter, Mude's expression was solemn and he kept at his pace. Stepping over body after wreaked body of hopeless regulars, dozens of them sprawled across the ground. "You swing your weapon to cause harm, to cause death and chaos.....you do not deserve to climb this tower." The rhino looked dumbfounded, not knowing what Mude was saying simply because he was too dumb to grasp the manner in which Mude was speaking. Despite such, the rhino grew infuriated and spoke with a roaring tone, "PIECE OF SHIT! EITHER LEAVE OR DIE!" Mude shook his head, his left thumb slightly pushed up the hilt of the blade, a clear signal for the rhino who then swung his club side ways attempting a bone crushing swing that would've broken arms and ribs. But Mude ducked low, "You cared not for them, so I won't hesitate..." Mude rose and continued forward, gathering shinsoo around his legs, strengthening them. "DIE!" The rhino roared once more as he used the momentum from the swing to bring the club above his head and down towards Mude.
"Huh?" The rhino's attack missed, Mude's strengthening allowed him a greater speed. "Wh......what....the...he....ll!?" The last words muttered before the rhino hit the ground, split in half. "I didn't spare you, nor shall I pray for your wicked soul." Mude then sighed as he sheathed his sword, he then kicked the mess of the remains of the rhino away from the marker. He looked up, hoping that someone would at least have the decency to show up without wanting to fight. 'I guess I want hope for a miracle.' So atop the marker he calmly waited for the time to be up.
