After a long day of work Sam arrives at the small apartment he rents and falls into bed, after a twenty-four-hour shift. He volunteered due to the great overtime pay, he could only pull it off due to him having the next two days off to recover.
He looks around thinking he is dreaming; he finds himself flouting in a void.
[You have been chosen to take part in an experiment.
Use the character creation system that is loading in to create your new self.]
Sam then sees what looks like a very advanced character creation system that reminds of Red desert, an old mmorpg he played in his childhood. Unlike that one, it looks like with this one you create your appearance before choosing your class.
First thing available is a list of races, as Sam scrolls through it he sees most of the common fantasy races. He quickly moves through the races, looking for something specific. He grins as he spots it, foxkin. He quickly reads through the race info looking for something.
There it is, foxkin can evolve into kitsune given enough time. He selects the race and is soon brought into the customization part. Sam is unsure of how long he takes creating this character. Once he stops, he takes a step back and admires what he made.
She stands about 1.6m, silver hair flows down he back with red tips. She is fairly curvy with a fluffy tail that is about 1m long with the same coloring as her hair, her fox ears also match. Her eyes are a deep crimson with silver specks.
He then moves on to class selection, it seems that there is a main and and minor class. The main one will determine the core abilities while the minor will augment. He looks through the options before choosing spear fighter for the main and mage for the minor.
Everything vanishes as he finishes.
Right after Sam falls asleep.
A meeting of a large number of divine beings is happening, a rather regal looking God stands and claps his hands making a sound like thunder.
"A few minutes ago, a young goddess awoke in galaxy 2789, at the same time one of the more advanced mortal races was testing their newest warship. The warship jumped into FTL and hit the goddess ten seconds into its maiden flight. The debris mainly took out empty systems, one though was not.
The goddess did not survive the impact, so her body has been used with the debris to make a new world for these lost souls. It will be all of your responsibility to aid in the rebirth process. Make sure you follow the guide us elder divines set up; this is your chance to prove yourself. Do not fail."
All of the souls from earth 2789 were put into sleep. All were given a choice on what they wanted to be. The options available were determined by karma. Two thousand years after the birth of this new world, Sam was reborn.
Sam blinked open his eyes, he sees an unfamiliar wood ceiling above him. Just the memories flooded into his mind, the memories of Sayuri. She has been raised in the orphanage for as long as she can remember. She has been trained by a veteran that lives near the orphanage in how to use a spear.
She had been given the option of taking other paths in life, she chose this wanting the strength to find her own path. Today is the day of the academy tests, depending on how she does. Sayuri will be able to attend an academy, they will test her potential. This will be from one to five stars, the test will show the power of her bloodline, affinities, current strength, and class potential.
She needs five stars for the local academy, ten for the imperial knight academy and fifteen for the royal academy. Any of them would be good, though she is hesitant about the royal academy. She feared that she would be hindered by where she grew up.
She stood and followed Dirk's instructions; she knew the old vet has a good heart under his gruff exterior. She washes herself and dons a clean white shirt and added her leather armor over it. She runs her hands over the well cared for leather, she earned this by aiding with goblin extermination missions.
Sayuri then brushes and braids her hair, taking some time to make sure her tail and ears are properly groomed. She then stood and grabbed her dagger and spear, both gifts from Dirk. She is not a fan of fighting hand to hand or with a dagger. Dirk though insisted she learn, he always said "if you lose your weapon. It is better to be armed in some fashion and a dagger adds little weight."
She takes a deep breath and steps out of her small room, knowing it will be the last time she sees it. She carries a small pack in one hand, her dagger sheathed on her waist. It contains what little she could call hers, others who are stepping out at the same time did not have a pack.
Due to her focusing on training, she does not have any friends to say goodbye to. Well, she has one, a young werewolf runs up and hugs her. Due to both of them being the only two non-human girls at the orphanage, Sarah latched on to Sayuri as a big sister. She squeezes as hard as she could, burying her face in Sayuri's chest.
Sayuri hugs her back, "Sarah. Keep up with your training, when it is time, I will see if I can come to welcome you to the same academy. Listen to the matron mother and Dirk, they genuinely care for us. "She gently untangles herself from Sarah, giving her a quick kiss on the forehead. Distracting the girl letting her slip out, she knows that the chances of them attending are fairly low.
She only started training once she realized that she could spend more time with Sayuri. She hopes that Sarah will continue and even increase her training pace with that little encouragement. She then moves towards the main square of the town she grew up in.
Around her are thirty teens, all sixteen years of age. As all of them rehearsed, they lined up in rows of five based on when they arrived. Sayuri ended up in the second row second column. Not a bad place, just far back enough so she can see what to expect.
Soon four groups step onto the stage, one is the mayor and other elders of the town. Then one group for each Academy, they sat down behind the mayor who starts to speak. "Once more we gather to test the youth of this town, this will decide your futures. Do not hold back and make sure to be respectful to the testers."
Then one of the testers, who are all dressed in white robes with their faces covered calls out a name. A boy steps forward and goes to the first tester, all four are sitting behind desks with an orb on them. Sayuri is not sure when they got there, only that they were not there when she arrived.
The boy just walked down the line with a paper in hand and touched the orbs when told to. Seeing that it was boring, she only listened for her name to be called. Soon it was, she approached the first tester. "Place your hand on the orb, it will see your races potential."
She did so, the orb glowed for a moment. Then a paper pops into existence and the tester holds it out to her. As she moves to the next test, she looks at it.
Race: Foxkin; Potential: four stars
Her eyes widened when seeing that, she heard a cough. She looks up at the tester, a blush forming. She then holds out the paper she just got, once they see what is on it, they nod in understanding. "Place your hand on the orb, it will test your class potential."
She did so and it flashes like the last one. They then pass the paper back; she glances at it again. Added to what was there before.
Classes; Potential: three stars
Main: Spear fighter
While started she still hears the tester this time, "place your hand on the orb. It will reveal your current power, this is based off of you age." She nods and hands them her paper and places a hand on the orb. It once again flashes and they hand back the paper. She looks once more while walking.
Level: 27; Potential: four stars
At this point it is only the drills she had to go through that kept her moving. She heard the next tester speak, so she handed over her paper and placed a hand on the orb. She got the paper as she walks forward.
Advanced: Metal, Lava
Basic: Fire, Earth
Sayuri blinks at what Academy she got as she moves to the waiting area for those that are going to the Royal Academy. A guard in formal plate steps in her way and she offers him her paper. Once he sees the school listed, he nods and steps aside. She is the only one currently waiting there, she looks at her complete status.
Main: Spear fighter
Advanced: Metal, Lava
Basic: Fire, Earth
She then turns her head to watch the rest of the testing. As it ends no others join her in the waiting area, she is in. A few are in the Imperial Knight area while most are going to the local one. The guard that stopped her before motions for her to follow him. She is led to the airship the Royal Academy group came here one.
It is a massive vessel, about forty meters in length. The balloon above it is triple the length of the vessel. The vessel itself is very ornate with a dragon carving at the front. She is assigned a cabin, as she enters it, she sees an Elf standing in it in a formal looking uniform.
"Oh, I am sorry, I think there has been a mistake. I was told this is my room."Before she could leave the elf spoke up. "You are not in the wrong room, I am Celinia Farinella. I am a student advisor for the royal academy, I am here to give you this crystal. It will draw out the potential within you and refine your bloodline.
Most nobles undergo this at birth, others like yourself undergo it once they are sent off to an academy. It is a painful process so I will knock you out with magic and then use the crystal. Please lay on your bed, feel free to take off your armor first."
Sayuri nods and sets her spear on the weapon rack in the room and took her leather armor off and properly stored it. Leaving her in a white shirt and light brown soft leather pants. She then laid down on her side, facing Celinia. She heard her chant some magic as her consciousness slips away.
