Story break Date: 5/30/2026 Time: 1:01AM Location: Character creation room _____Anyone who called themself a game lover would not pass up the chance to play a game like what she had heard about of Terrasphere. Designing a character was simply a very long and often enjoyed step for the individual behind the console, or in this case overlooking the avatar in the empty room. An empty canvas, default set to match the player as the figure reached to lightly chew their thumb, so many choices and ideas racing around the mind but only one could truly be chosen leaving the weight greatly on the shoulders of the figure drawing her bent up nervous tendency to reveal itself. _____This figure, Kaede Hoshi, age nineteen, female, single, homosexualy curious, and above all loner. While she played games most her life online she was not one for MMO games, the idea you would likely need others was never her choice but this game seemed to pull her in with mystery and unknown until she stood where she was. Moving thumb away from her face slowly Kaede set to work, not exactly sure how to fully go about actually changing anything about her character that she wanted to change. ”Let’s take this slow, only have one shot so we have to make everything perfect or as close as we can get I suppose. Firstly, I need to consider masteries actually, if I set my appearance and then pick a mastery that does not match my build i’d have to start over again.” _____Moving to glance around the area for anything that might resemble the location to pick the masteries for the character with nothing popping out. Everything was grey and empty outside Kaede, her clone, and the chair it sat on unmoving. It was almost a unsettling feeling to see yourself sitting before you and not moving, an out of body experience one might call it, Kaede simply called it bad precipitation or someone got to drugged up. Lapping the room several times in hopes to find something, but no luck as she returned to the spot she started and glanced at her doppelganger. ”I don’t suppose you might know how to get anything done. This might be why the game was in that odd email, just some troll messing with people who want to play a real game. What a waste of my time I swear.” _____Kaede spoke to her double, no reply as she expected but still felt the need to try. Doing another lap around the room before she realized another issue that was far more pressing. There was no log out button, or menu. The real flaw and trap, while sure most would panic Kaede simply sighed lightly and sat down on the floor before her clone with a blank expression. It was rather genius plan she had to admit. Set up an enticing story for a game, send it out under the radar, watch as people get trapped and die from not maintaining their real body because they can't log out. _____The soundlessness broke as Kaede slowly clapped her hands to show her approval of the work the people put into this death trap. It was something else and as much as she tried to go over things in her head there seemed to be no hints or real way to escape this. Moving to lay down on the ground Kaede wondered how the next few days would feel until she died, and would hunger or thirst kill her, it was somewhat fun to consider. Yawning lightly Kaede figured her best choice would be to sleep for now, not like she could do much else it seemed.
