Chapter 2 - 'Omega'
Rudra s father was a stern man and since , Rudra graduated this year but was not placed.....he went on to confront him.
"What plans do you have for the future, if nothing else come join me in my company " He said
He half expected his son to rebel and them to have an argument , but Rudra was unexpectedly courteous
" Please give me 10 grand and a time of 3 months father, if i fail in my new endeavour i will surely join your office."
This attitude shocked his father, the usually brash kid was feeling soo mature to him today.
" Okay then , do what you want".
" I will be moving out tommorow , father ill return either having made something out of me or join you in the next 3 months"
His father was worried for him , but he knew in his heart this was one of the make or break moments in a man's life... Being a young ambitious man himself in the past he could feel his son's burning passion.
He agreed and lent Rudra the sum of money and Rudra rented a appartment for 200 bucks a month and rationed all food necessary , He then went to the shop and buyed the best headset for the new game
'Omega' for 5 thousand dollars .
It was not as good as the gaming pods, but it will be a year before those were released hence, he was now stuck with this 95% neural link headsets.
Rudra was all set for the launch of the game tommorow at 12 am .... as he laid in his bed waiting he created a strategy in his mind, all the things to do and all the hassles to avoid, even though he had played the game for countless hours .... He was feeling nervous today with butterflies in his stomach
Like he did when he played his first time ... he laughed as he found it silly..... and soon the countdown to the game started
WELCOME TO 'OMEGA'
He was transported to a temple like room with a fairy
she said " 𝘸𝘦𝘭𝘤𝘰𝘮𝘦 𝘵𝘰 𝘰𝘮𝘦𝘨𝘢... 𝘮𝘺 𝘯𝘢𝘮𝘦 𝘪𝘴 𝘨𝘢𝘪𝘢 𝘪 𝘢𝘮 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘢𝘳𝘵𝘪𝘧𝘪𝘤𝘪𝘢𝘭 𝘪𝘯𝘵𝘦𝘭𝘭𝘪𝘨𝘦𝘯𝘤𝘦 𝘪𝘯𝘤𝘩𝘢𝘳𝘨𝘦 𝘰𝘧 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘴 𝘸𝘰𝘳𝘭𝘥."

There were more than 35 classes in 'Omega'
But rudra aldready had decided on his
He would choose the Knight class
Usually one needed to read about all classes and then choose according to their strengths but Rudra aldready knew all about the classes hence he could choose one straight away

𝘗𝘭𝘦𝘢𝘴𝘦 𝘤𝘩𝘰𝘰𝘴𝘦 𝘢 𝘤𝘩𝘢𝘳𝘢𝘤𝘵𝘦𝘳 𝘯𝘢𝘮𝘦
Rudra decided on a traditional Indian name from mythology
A legendary character in the most bloody war in History
The ultimate schemer ' Shakuni'

𝘞𝘰𝘶𝘭𝘥 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘭𝘪𝘬𝘦 𝘵𝘰 𝘢𝘭𝘵𝘦𝘳 𝘺𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘢𝘱𝘱𝘦𝘢𝘳𝘢𝘯𝘤𝘦 𝘣𝘺 5%?
He chose 'no' , he had no need to change his appearance, he came to know about 5 years into the game that changing ones appearance reduced the neural sync rate.
He would absolutely not do it this time.

NINE CLOUDS KINGDOM
There were four major kingdoms in the Eastern continent and Each kingdom had few major cities and a large capital city .... but all players had to spawn from a small village near the capital city
The four kingdoms all had their history and lineage dating back to 1000 years... it was astonishing as to how realistic and profound was this game world giving royal dynasties a backdating lineage and
Each kingdom its own culture and heritage
Rudra had made his plan to make the Hazelgroove kingdom his operations base as his enemy the ' White Light' guild would be joining this kingdom . He was stationed in this kingdom for a long time and has knowledge of every dungeon every nook and cranny of the kingdom .
Please choose 'Hazelgroove kingdom'.
𝘱𝘭𝘦𝘢𝘴𝘦 𝘤𝘩𝘰𝘰𝘴𝘦 𝘷𝘪𝘭𝘭𝘢𝘨𝘦 𝘵𝘰 𝘴𝘱𝘢𝘸𝘯
Before the system gave him options he said i chose the
'blackwater village '.
𝘚𝘱𝘢𝘸𝘯𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘪𝘯 𝘣𝘭𝘢𝘤𝘬𝘸𝘢𝘵𝘦𝘳 𝘷𝘪𝘭𝘭𝘢𝘨𝘦
ZAP! he was transported to the spawn point in blackwater village
Rudra was elated ..... he looked to the skies and shouted ' I M BACK' .
A few NPC's and players looked at him as if he was a madman . Rudra looked around and saw a scene all too familiar , most players who spawned in the village were having struggle walking and most were mesmerized at how real the world felt.
Yes the company advertised full dive technology but noone expected it to be soo good and feel soo real, while some casual players were enjoying some really hyper players and levelling maniacs had aldready ran off into the wild to kill some animals to gain EXP
He called out the system menu
Player Name : Shakuni
Title : none
Class : Knight
Subclass : none
LVL : 1
AGI : 5 VIT : 5
INT : 5. STA : 5
PHY : 5. HP : 100/100
Status : Healthy
Equipment : common stone sword
In 'Omega' all classes started with a 100 hp and 5 points in all stats and upon levelling you get 5 stat points for each level which you can freely distribute
Then according to your class you can choose your best stat distribution
Rudra was very weak right now and it was time to go grind some levels as the quest he needed to take in blackwater village required him to be of atleast level 5
'Off to leveling we go' Thought Rudra and ran into the wild.
