What if you found yourself inside a game? Lewis and thousands of others found themselves inside the online MMORPG: Swordsmaster. The thing is, there is no reviving, no multiple lives; if you die in-game, you die in real life. Lewis soon learns that the only way to be free is to beat the game, and that can't be done alone. Can you really trust someone you hardly know?


13. Creatures

It was almost afternoon by the time TRIBUNA reached the forest on the north side. It was fairly thick, but each of the trees were laden with fruits that none of them had ever seen before. The storm had let up a fair bit, making the whole thing easier to see.

“There’s a clearing just down this path,” Adrianna gestured to the dirt track before her, “And you can only have one animal per person. Since they all have different abilities, it would be best if we each got different ones.”

She pulled up her menu and found a section called ‘Pictures’. This section was definitely not in normal menus, so Lewis assumed that she had hacked the system for that, too.

She tapped a little thumbnail, and a large picture appeared. Turning round so everyone could see it, she pointed out which creatures had which abilities.

There was one that looked like a red bat. This creature could be used to spy on people with a range of twenty feet. One looked like a purple parrot with the occasional silver feather and could be used to alert friends that you need help, though is incapable of telling them how. There was a green, dragon-like creature (probably only the length of Lewis’ forearm) that could heal ten hp in a battle every forty seconds. Lastly, there was a small, royal blue bear that could assist in battle, though can only deal five hp of damage each hit and wasn’t very slow.

“So one of us goes without?” Nina asked, having done the math.

“Not necessarily, but I don’t think Loo can have one just yet; not until I fully trust him.” Adrianna closed the menu after deleting the pictures section.

Lewis didn’t complain. He had gotten used to it by now, and she had every reason not to trust him. It still hurt, though.

“Buttercup, I want you to have the eagle. Mike, you’re having the dragon. Nina can have the bat and I’ll have the bear, any objections?” Adi readied her sword.

The guild members all shook their heads and followed in single file behind their leader. Lewis was directly behind her, followed extremely closely by Buttercup, then Nina while Mike brought up the rear.
