Who’s the Tank? [1x1 w nyfeli]

By TheGallowsMaster
Backup thread

Bear with me because even I find this to be a stretch. I was thinking something like Low Level Healer X High Level Tank/DPS for a VRMMO roleplay)

If you have any questions feel free to PM me at any time.

(Picture something like ALO with less High Fantasy and fairies. :P)

This is a Fantasy MMO revolving around groups of players fighting massive monsters! My character has been trying to do one of the beginning dungeons but because this game has been out for so long, they are all empty. After standing in front of the entrance for six hours he is about to log out when he notices someone approaching. This character is unlike anything he’s ever seen! Max level gear, the aura of the elite radiating from her every step! Was she by chance coming to help him or just passing through? Even so, it’s worth a chance to try and get her to help him!

In your subject, please put "You Have My Shield" to show me you read the post.

Things I need from you:

Character Class: - The sky is the limit here. You want to be a Spacial Mage and shape galaxies with a snap of your fingers? Go for it! Feel free to use a class that isn't from an MMO here as well.
Character Race: - With this being a VRMMO there are a TON of races to pick from. What would you be if given the choice?
Character Level: - It says max level but you don't have to be! If you want to leave yourself at a level like 60+ that is cool too! It really opens the story for both of us to gain strength!
Character Alignment: - You can pick any alignment you'd like. I have no preference here and am eager to see what you choose.
Spells Per Day (If Any): - You're a higher level, so pick something like 7-20 or more if you are a dedicated mage.
Character Skills/Spells - Think of MMOs, D&D, anything you've played. What skills correlate with your class? Do you have a favorite skill from somewhere that you couldn't live without? I hate to sound cheesy but, if you can dream it, go for it.

Mine as an example:
Character Class: Healer
Character Level: Level 6 (Max of 80)
Character Race: Moon Elf
Character Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
Spells Per Day: 5
Spells: Heal, Rejuvenate, Minor Heal, Magelight, Minor Barrier

The heat of the sun caused Takka to flinch ever so slightly. His current position in the mouth of a small cave was the best place for him to wait. With a step to the side, he pushed himself into the edge of the cave’s entrance. The first dungeon “The Dark Hollow” stood in front of him. A massive blinking box of text out front said clearly:

[b [i “The Dark Hollow is a level 6+ instance with a recommended party size of 3!” ]]

One quest remained until he could get out of the starting area and it was for the head of the boss at the end. He’d seen it first the night before but didn’t have the time to wait for a group. Today, he could wait for a while longer. A few hours had already passed with no one arriving. The line of shade from the cave had rescinded a bit with the sun’s rising. A small pebble dropping caused him to jolt in surprise, his eyes locking on it quickly.

A sigh of relief became audible as he realized his nerves were far too tense. With his right hand, he brought a menu up, looking at a bright menu that read: [i “Players Nearby:”] Most were greyed out because of being AFK but one name stuck out.

[b [i Vrysk, Level 45 ShadowBlade]],

[i “This dude has been here all day! I wonder what he wants?”] his nameplate was red which probably meant he was a Player Killer. He made several checks over the past few hours and always saw that character’s name. With an unsettling feeling, Takka’s left hand opened the game menu, scrolling all the way down the list and hovering over the [i “Logout”] button. Just as his hand moved to press the button, another name popped on to the list of nearby players. A cute [i bloop] noise echoed as the name

[b [i Ares, Level ?? Arcane Archer]]

[i “Woah! Why can’t I see that player’s level? It must be super high!” ] Takka’s eyes scanned the surrounding area once more. His mind was racing while he searched for this character. A building feeling of excitement fully consumed him as he took a single step forward. The wall of heat from the sun that made contact with him almost took his breath away. With a staggered fall, he plopped back onto the floor of the cave, landing on his rear. [i “Great race choice, dummy.”] A pout became visible for a moment as he questioned his choice in character.

With a slow scooting motion Takka pressed his back to the rocks of the cave’s entrance, the stones felt cool to the touch. A slow movement pulled his flask from the pockets on his robe. The water inside was much needed, the elf finishing a good amount of it on the first massive gulp. Small coughs and sputters erupted as he tried to catch his breath. [i “I’ll have to make a potion if I want to go back to town…”] his thoughts still rustled, albeit more nervously now that someone was approaching. ]

[Font "Ms Gothic" [size11 [b [#E64176 "Good raid! Send me an add if you need help with those dungeons we were talking about~"]] Ares' hooded avatar waved goodbye to the random players she'd met during the raid she'd just hosted. The player was attempting to craft a high tier weapon for it's class perks-- meaning she was stuck doing raids and dungeons until she collected the correct amount of materials or questline consumables.

Ares pulled up her inventory and went to the crafting subcategory. [b [#E64176 "Alright looks like I have everything except one item..."]] She said to herself as the bright red [#faffff .] [b [#fa0000 Hollow's Treasure [#faffff .] (0/1)]] [#faffff .] stuck out like a sore thumb compared to all the green acquired items.

Alright, cool back to the beginning. Ares thought to herself as she used a travel ticket to teleport herself to the beginning area. The town square was completely dead, Ares could remember when the game was brand new... This server specifically had been popular and the square was always filled with players trying to chat or form parties. She'd had so many friends on here once upon a time, now it felt like no one logged in as much as she did, even her veteran bestie got busy with work and life consistently. Now it was filled with grey AFK users who were probably 90% spam bots and silence.

Ares sighed when she managed to pull herself out of memories and back into the present. The cave's guidelines from her journal claimed it was a level 6 with 3 recommended players... She would be fine to clear that out by herself since Ares was now at least 10x stronger than this beginner quest. However... She was horrible with directions and found herself running around the immediate area of the cave for a good 2 minutes before finally finding the path that led to the mouth of the cave.

Upon arrival, she could see the avatar of an active user waiting at the foot of the cave. [b [#E64176 "Uh oh, are we stuck?"]] She playfully quipped, Ares pulled the hood of her armor back, two oversized rosey pink cat ears flopping out before perking up straight. Her inky black scleras contrasted against her bright matching eyes and her skin was a deep tan.

Ares offered the other user a friendly smile emote, pulling up her party log and clicking the "invite" button. [b [#E64176 "I need an item from this dungeon, do you wanna join? What's your class?"]] Ares could have easily just looked into his stats but she preferred to ask, some of the classes had subtypes players aspired for. He was a definitely low level, probably couldn't get enough exp. to take on the cave alone since the higher leveled enemies were far and few.
