Nick had a centaur in front of him and one behind him, he heard the sounds of their hoves scraping on the ground.
They were about to attack, he smiled.

Let's go for the kill. He thought as he held his weapon close to him, might brake it in the process, he thought as he remembered his sword was in the red.
Whatever. He tought. I have a spare one just in case.

Alright, let's do this! Nick thought as he nodded towards wolf.

Two centaurs charged at the same time towards nick, their axes raised high in the air.
The axes indicated they would use a vertical strike! Did they anticipate my movements? That's impossible...

Nick saw the centaurs running towards him, just about 2 meters remained as they started their attack and lowered the axes.

Now! He yelled and jumped up, avoiding both attacks, the centaurs slammed into one another and fell down in a heap.

Nick's blade shone bright blue. Vopal Strike! He yelled his signature attack and slammed his sword down.
It went trough both centaurs and slammed into the ground.

His sword broke into thousands of pieces and dissapeared.
he looked at the centaurs, their HP dropped to zero as well.

Nice payoff. Too bad about the sword. he thought as he opened his menu.
His other sword was slightly weaker then the one he used before but for now it would do.

He looked at the others and how they faired.

"10 left," Wolf said as he felt the enemy's existences vanishing. "4 single swords, 3 sword and shield, 2 spears, 1 mace."

Wolf stopped shortly in front of his four enemies who were, up close, bigger than he anticipated. Wolf made a wide and obvious swing to the right, rolling into it as he finished the attack. As he expected, the four enemies all blocked it and sparks flew everywhere from the four hits. Using the momentum from the roll, Wolf jumped and performed a two legged kick in the air, causing the four monsters to domino each other to the ground but also resulting in Wolf on the ground as well.

"Switch!" Wolf called out for the first time in the longest time.

Nick saw wolf attacking the four sword's centaurs by himself.
Is he that confident? he tought, or is he a distraction? Who knows what he was thinking.

He saw sparks fly off all the weapons and wolf kicking the centaurs down like domino's.
He then shouted a word that he never thought he would hear from that man.

"Switch"

Nick took that chance, his weapon drawn and shining red, he leaped towards the group. sonic leap!

He chrashed into the middle of the centaur party and made contact with two of them, their HP dropped into the yellow zone, two others were unharmed.

He took his sword and attacked one, but it blocked. It got on it's two rear legs and kicked nick in the chest,
all air escaping from his lungs as he was launched backwards, he slit across the ground and stopped 5 meters from where he started, his HP dropped around 15 percent.

he was going to need some help.
There was enough distance betwean him and his target so he called out.

Switch!

Vyse's boots pounded the dirt as he rushed through the forest. He had heard an unmistakable howl in the distance and had since zeroed in on his friends location. The presence of a howl indicated a battle, and in an unfamiliar area, the group could be in trouble. Soon the sound of clashing steel could be heard over the sound of his heavy footsteps and labored breathing. A smile crossed his lips as he slowed his pace and drew the claymore slung across his back.

As the sound of battle grew closer, Vyse slowed his pace even more to try and avoid detection. His greatest advantage now is the element of surprise. As he moved past a thick tree trunk, he saw the battle unfolding swiftly. The familiar warriors were all engaging a group of rampant centaurs, and were dangerously outnumbered. Vyse watched for another few seconds, waiting for an enemy to turn its back to him. Eventually, Nick launched a sonic leap at the group nearest Vyse. His attack managed to damage two of the four foes, and the one at the back stumbled as the force of the attack struck him. Vyse seized the opportunity to attack before the centaur could regain his footing. The foliage turned to a blur as he rushed from the brush that concealed him. The mighty sword in his hands began to glow as he readied an attack. The centaur at the rear of the party noticed his presence, but by the time he reacted, Vyse's sword was already plunged deep in its chest. With a flick he drew the blade from the centaurs virtual flesh in a downward motion, and using the momentum of the sword, brought it around in a large circle and slashed down across the centaurs chest again.

As he watched the enemy fade into nothing, he smiled as the remaining three centaurs turned their attention to the new adversary. He gave Nick and Wolf a nod before taking up an attack stance again. The sword in Vyse's hands shimmered in the dim light as he bounced on the balls of his feet. His heart pounded in his throat and his blood coursed with adrenalin. He twirled the sword again to his right then released his grip briefly, letting the sword rotate a half turn before he grabbed it again in a reverse grip. He smiled widely as he taunted the enemies that stood before him.

"Let's dance the jitterbug baby!"

Seeing that the group had been surrounded by centaurs Amon heard Wolf call out "Amon, you help out mizuko with the spearmen." "Sounds good enough for me" Amon thought being able to test out his new sword. As mizuko flashed past him with her rapier Amon came up from behind her and after she had lunged at the first spearman he had done the same thrusting his massive sword through the beasts chest and ripping his sword up through it's face. The beasts hp immediately dropped to zero and as he pulled his sword back into his defensive stance he took a look around and thought to himself "I think think this is where I need to be, here, with my friends."

Vyse had entered the fight, and was taking the centaur in the back to himself.
Nick's call to switch was ignored and he coudn't wait anymore.

Damn, everyone is too busy to help out...
He grabbed the hilt of his sword and attempted another sonic leap, but it refused to activate.
Nick looked at his skill and saw the name change to Savage Leap, a new variant on his sonic leap.

He jumped up and yelled Savage leap! His sword shone red and he was propelled towards the enemy he had attacked before,
the attack did more damage and finished his first target off.

Only two remained in front of him.

Let's dance! He said as the two centaurs prepared to attack in front of him.

Nick had the two remaining single handed sword Centaur's attention on him. Wolf took this time to strike. Their health wasn't full and Wolf was confident in his strength stats. "Sometimes you need to be loud," Wolf's soothing voice normally escaped his mouth as if he was talking to himself. "And sometimes," Wolf now appeared on top of one of the Centaurs. Both hands were on his 6 foot long, two handed blade and it was held in a reverse fashion, blade pointing towards the ground.

Displaying a surprising amount of athletics, Wolf did a backflip from his Centaur to the one in front of him, making his glowing blade trace that of a full moon. Striking both Centaurs with full force, their close to orange health was now fully depleted. "How many are left?" Wolf said standing up from his crouched position.

Once Asuna felt replenished, she immediately headed off to the combat zone. She knew that the other eager front liners already left and did not feel like joining them earlier since she wanted to take a small break. In order to get to the combat field, she had to take the ferry to go across the water. Fortunately she was not too impatient to go off and fight against some monsters. Every moment she spent fighting was another increased risk to her getting killed. She always made sure to be stocked with health potions since those saved her life before.

When she stepped off the ferry, she immediately headed towards the rocky highlands. Asuna gripped onto the handle of her golden rapier bravely. Now was a good time for her to really test her new weapon on an enemy. Before she headed on the ferry, she found an empty spot in the town area and practiced using some basic skills with her new rapier. Deeper in the rocky highlands, she could hear some low growling - that meant monsters were closeby. She could see a that within a dwelling, a few baby dragons coming out and looking viciously towards her. Asuna knew that the dragons were of course AI's that were programmed to fight any incoming player, not the cute baby dragons shown on TV.

The baby dragons' wings did not look fully developed meaning that they wouldn't be able to fly so well. However they made up for that downfall with their fire power. The first of the three baby dragons opened its mouth and let loose a flurry of flames. Asuna immediately uses her high acrobatics skill to jump out of the way from the fire. She then sprints forth at the dragon, trying to get an attack before the dragon could send another fire attack. Just as the dragon's mouth was about to breath out another torrent of flames, Asuna's linear strike managed to impale its mouth. She sent out multiple other linear strikes which then destroyed the dragon. 1 down, 2 to go.

The other two dragons cried out angrily seeing that its comrade was destroyed and both opened their mouths to breath out flames. Asuna does a front flip forward to avoid the flames and ended up right behind the dragons. She sent out more linear attacks at one of the dragons. Asuna decided the best strategy was to take one down at a time. Since these were baby dragons, they were not too intelligent. Eventually the dragons were tired of spewing out flames at her so they ran towards her and tried to claw at her. Asuna was able to block their clawed attacks with her sword and then parried them off with even faster strikes. When the second dragon was taken out, Asuna turns to the side and does a sword uppercut that goes to the other dragon's throat and eliminates it. Right now she was satisfied with the progress of the front line group because they were clearing the floors without too many problems.

Heading in from the right of two shield-wielding centaurs, Yuuki jabbed the blade forward, piercing the right hind flank with her sword, dragging it downward excruciatingly swiftly. It gurgled and also swung its sword, which had a much farther reaching and thus making the blue haired girl backpeddal slightly. The other centaur came to its pitiful aid. The monster held out its shield for protection and made a wild cut across her body which was unPrepared and easily evaded. She ducked to the left and out of their way, coming up behind their rears. Even though the idiotic beings were fast, they were still lacking intelligence and didn't know what to do when Yuuki sliced across, cutting deep into one and dragging the blade through the other. They were now both in the yellow zone, and not even turning their glances off of her, both centaurs clambered towards her, gaining the short distance in less than seconds. Yuuki held the blade out to fend off their attacks, and she was surprised when both swords coordinated their movements to match each other, bringing full force down onto her. It made Yuuki stagger, and the second centaur brOught the shield up and bashed it into the side of her head.

Yuuki screamed slightly as she went careening off coarse and straight into a nearby tree. Getting up shakily, Yuuki drew her sword out in front of we once more, her breath labored as the centaurs stamped their hooves into the groin while they made screeching and blood-curling noises. As they made their way towards her, she began to walk, which turned into a full out sprint.

Yup. She was definitely going crazy.

Squeezing her body to the smallest it could go, as the centaurs reached her, she ducked. Yuuki slipped into the small space between the horse legs and sliced the blade through the legs of the one on the left, sending it straight down. As it hit the ground, tiny, red crystals danced in the now fading sunlight. It did so in a way that was almost beautiful. Yuuki locked her chapped lips and place both of her hands on the laced hilt, towards the second centaur. It screamed once more, charging at full force towards her and ramming her up against yet another tree. The wind was knocked out of Yuuki and she struggled to catch her breath as the monster held her up with the edge of the shield, feet dangling. It swung the blade horizontally towards Yuuki before the stupid thing realized that it would hit the tree first. With the sword now stuck in the tree, Yuuki gathered whatever strength she had left and pierced the centaur straight where she thought the heart would be, in the chest. As she hit the ground, Yuuki sputtered for breath. Yuuki started healing herself while the lat of the remaining centaurs were being fought off.

"Serves you right, horse freak." She blatantly spoke to the fading red haze of crystals.

The tide of the battle had turned swiftly, and the favour fell towards Vyse and his companions. Wolf, in a display of incredible acrobatics, had dispatched two centaurs in one swoop. Yuuki had also managed to fell two centaurs on her own. This left only three enemies standing, two of which wielded leaf bladed spears, and the third, slightly larger centaur hefted a heavy mace up in a display of aggression.

The three remaining centaurs were well outnumbered and obviously outgunned. They lashed out recklessly at the players that now surrounded them. Vyse ducked under a heavy horizontal blow, and felt the air rush over his head as the metallic head of the mace passed over him. The mace was heavy, and the absence of Vyse's body to stop the blow left the heavy weapon hurling through the air until it collided with a nearby tree. With a loud and solid thud, the mace bounced off the tree, and Vyse saw his opening.

Vyse, still holding his sword in a reverse grip, brought his hand upwards to slash the centaur across his now exposed chest. As the sword broke free of the enemies torso, Vyse flicked his wrist, sending his blade spinning half a turn before grabbing the hilt again. His sword, now raised high in the air, came slashing through the centaur once more. The cut went from shoulder to hip, and the centaur stumbled under the weight of Vyse's strike. As the beast stepped awkwardly to the left, Vyse delivered a heavy punch with the hilt of his sword, striking the centaur in the face.

Again, Vyse let a smile touch his lips as he moved in to finish his target. The centaur still reeled backwards from the most recent strike, and without letting the opportunity to strike pass, Vyse kicked off from the dirt floor as hard as he could, sending him hurtling towards the wounded enemy. Before the centaur could raise any defenses, Vyse was already beginning his attack. The heavy sword in his hands gleamed in the rays of dwindling sunlight that pierced the leafy canopy. He admired the beauty of the polished steel, tracing the lines at the edge of his weapon until they disappeared into the red, lattice filled wound that his sword was carving through his enemy. Before the sword could exit its target, the centaur burst into shimmering polygons, leaving behind no trace of the being it used to be.

"One more enemy down. Shame, this is turning into a fun battle." Vyse thought to himself. He was getting used to his new weapon. He gazed down at the sword in his hands, noting how the dim rays of light reflected off the polished blade. He had grown fond of the weapon, and hoped he could rely on it for many more battles.

Seeing that there were only two enemies left and seeing as both were spear wielders Amon thought he would try out one of the new moves he learned during training on the last level. Both enemies stood right next to each other and so Amon charged them full sprint and a second before he hit them he yelled " judgement " and he started the spin wildly holding out his massive two handed sword at arms length. striking both monsters multiple times until both were defeated in a flurry of blows. After defeating the two centaurs Amon awkwardly fell down and said. "I need to learn how to use that skill without the dizziness afterwards."

"There's the outpost," Wolf said as the group regained their breath. "We'll rest there and come up with our next plan. The monsters this close to town are too low of a level." The centaurs were a good fight but not what Wolf was hoping for. He needed something more challenging, something that he can try his two new moves on. He placed his sword upon his broad back and made his way to the outpost.

The isolated structure was about 18 to 20 feet high, judging from how big it was compared to Wolf. There were two ladders, one, inches away from Wolf's face and the other, on the opposite side of the building. Placed perfectly away from each other, four pillars held up the rectangular fixture.

When Wolf got to the top, he felt almost like a sniper. All four sides were guarded by a 3 foot tall wall and above them was a cheap looking roof shaped like a pyramid with wooden bars at the base forming an X. "This thing is high, but not high enough," Wolf said. "I can barely get a good view of the land." They needed to come up with their next plan, but as the sun was now fully set, they probably should wait until morning to execute it.

Nick was sitting down next to the safe point, regaining lost health points and catching his breath.
Good thing you showed up when you did Vyse, he said to the man in front of him, your distraciton really helped.

He took a look as his sword. It was slightly weaker then the one he broke during the battle.
Too bad, but this'll do for now.

He closed his eyes as went off to his own world.
He dreamed about the real world, his past life, that was only weeks ago but seemed like a lie at this point.
And yet they we're fighting so hard to regain their stolen lives... why? He wondered that himself.
Why risk yourself to fight for his own freedom when the prison he was in was more to his liking.

No. He though. I refuse to give in to this world, i will fight on my terms! And i will return to my friends, my family and my job!

He was sure the others shared some of his motivations.
He just wanted to help out and hoped he wouldn't become a burden.

His thoughts slowed down and he finally fell asleep.

Black had been knocked over by one of the Centaurs and had hit his head and had his health deropped but a far too large a margin. The leather armor he wore was light but that was also a bad thing. After waking up and realizing that everything was pretty much dead he looked up and saw the group of players sleeping up top. Mimbling about being left behind he steathily worked his way up and layed down on the platform. His <<battle healing>> and the potion he had drank had pretty much healed him but he still felt exhausted. Laying down near the edge he went to sleep, hoping that he didn't fall off.

After the last centaur disappeared, Mizuko followed everybody to the outpost. Her HP appeared in front of her, signaling her that her health was in the yellow zone. Fortunately with her <<battle healing>>, the HP began to slowly recover from its loss. Laying down, she noticed that most of her group members were resting. She felt her own eyelids start to close slowly, but she shook herself awake. "I need to stay awake. Don't sleep." she told herself and sat up. "So, whats the plan now? I mean if there is one." she said, slowly.
