26th February 2029. That was the day everything changed. Custo was in a line freezing his ass off. He was waiting for the teachers to let them into the hall so they could start their A-level exams. Im doing it one year early. I always have another chance next year. he thought to himself. Custo closed his eyes imagining a flame then fed all his emotions and sensations to the fire. It grew and grew. He finally served up his thoughts to it. The inferno reached its apex dying as it ran out of fuel. Custo let himself float in the void. Wrapped himself in it. Took refuge in it.

He did not feel cold anymore. The nerves disappeared. Custo felt detached from himself. The meditation technique had its uses in many ways. Custo walked into the hall and sat down at his seat. His head of year was murmuring at the front of the hall. He was speaking loudly but Custo lowered his volume to make him easier to ignore. The flame and the void has many uses. Thank you Tam Al hor! he chuckled to himself. Then he heard what he was waiting for. ”Begin! ”

Custo opened his exam and looked at the exam when his vision went all black for a moment. Panic battered at the edge of the void. It swallowed Custo whole breaking his meditation. Custo rubbed his eyes then his vision came back. Just as clear as it was before.

This time, however, it was floating in front of him. It looked like an in-game message. ”Congratulations Custo Tempesta! The planet Earth is about to evolve and reach the next stage You have been chosen to be the first to enter the Universal Tower as one of humanitys ambassadors. Do you accept? ” a voice said this in his head as he read over the words. It was not his own.

What? Is this real? Of course, it is. Unless I am going crazy, which I am not. There is no way I am the only person seeing this. It is still in front of me if I shake my head. Could this be some new technology? They definitely would not test this on some random person sitting an exam. Hmm. Earth is evolving? Is it some Pokemon? Digimon? Universal Tower? The ** is that. Sounds like an important Sci-fi thing? Why would I be chosen as an ambassador for humanity too? What should I answer? What do I have to lose if I say Yes? If it is not true I will get embarrassed. Not really. It would be even more embarrassing if I say no even if it is a joke. Custo pressed the yes button. Nothing.

He looked around and then saw that everyone in the room was replaced by himself all working. The students stretched out to the horizon. The room had no ceiling or floor. He just stretched out infinitely. Then all the faces turn to face him their eyes and mouths open. White voids formed inside them then Custo was falling. ”Oh shit! What the **! ” Custo closed his eyes and then started the steps for the flame and the void. He fed all the fear and panic to the flame and when the flame had nothing to feed on it died. Leaving a void for Custo to wrap himself in. ”So. How high am I? Nah. I have not smoked in a few days. Dreaming? Well if I am dreaming right now I am conscious of it. So I should be able to control it. ” an article flashed threw Custos head. He had read something a few months ago about lucid dreaming and how to lucid dream.

He followed the steps. All that was left was for him to change his dream. ”Let me fall face first into Yoruichis tits! Yeah! Thank you, Kubo! ” Custo focused. He imagined Yoruichi in all her glory and his face resting between her marvellous mounds. His face sinking into the softness. Unfortunately, Custo was not dreaming. Disappointment threatened to break his concentration. ”Fuck! I guess this is real again. So when am I going to hit the floor? ” Just like that his rapid descent stopped. Custo felt gravity reassert itself on him. Surprisingly he was standing. The white space started to populate itself as humans from across the world gathered in the space. The silence was engulfed by the murmur of thousands maybe even millions of people speaking in all kinds of languages.

Custo looked around and saw a girl on her knees with her eyes closed shaking with fear. Tears streamed down her face and Custo took a few steps back. Should I help her? Nah! I am in no position to help anyone right now. Anyway, how would I help her? She looks Asian. Would she even be able to speak English? I can hear all types of languages some I didn even think were from Earth.

AND IF YOU DO NOT REACH THE TOP IN 20 YEARS YOU WILL BE ERASED FROM THE UNIVERSE. GOOD LUCK! THE CHOICE IS YOURS!

The voice rang in Custos head. It answered all the questions he had and the white void fell silent once more. Everyone here had their most burning questions answered. The two options floated in front of Custo. Yes and No. ”Ahahahahaha! Why would I not choose yes? ” Custo laughed as pressed the button and exploded into a flash of many colours.

When Custo opened his eyes he was in a black void this time. The floor was gold and a woman was standing in front of him with four angelic wings. Custo walked up to her and before he could speak to her ”Greetings ambassador! I am Bynd! I am here to explain how the tower works. ” she raised her hand and a screen appeared in front of Custo.

”For you, this will remind you of what you humans call an MMORPG. This is similar. Right now you are to choose your class. There are many. From your stats and personality, I will highlight the best choices for you. However, you are free to choose what you wish. You will be able to reset your class once in this tower, all the stat points you have increased will go back to what they were right now and then you will be able to allocate everything after an hour. There are seven classes as well as a massive amount of subclasses. ” She raised her hand once more and another screen appeared in front of Custo.

Classes:

Warrior Mage Marksmen Rouge Tank Support Specialist .

All but the specialist class was glowing and Custo know if he wanted more information on a class the system would give it to him. Well then let me go one by one. Warrior. The fighter class glowed then opened up:

Warriors are a diverse group of short-ranged combatants who excel at both dealing and surviving damage. With easy access to heavy, continuous damage and a host of innate defences, warriors thrive in extended fights as they seek out enemies to take down, but their limited range puts them at constant risk of being kept at bay by their opponents via crowd control, range and mobility. Warriors tend to have an advantage against assassins, whose burst tends to fall short of killing them when unaided, as well as tanks, whose inferior damage allows fighters to eventually defeat them in duels, but often struggle against mages and marksmen, whose superior reach allows them to kite approaching fighters. Sub-classes of the Warriors are juggernauts and divers.

The sub-classes were also highlighted. The class was exactly as expected but Custo continued to check on all the others and their sub-classes. These seem to be the sub-classes that fit me the best. Juggernaut: Practically a raid boss on their own. They are the only class that can deal a lot of damage while taking a lot too. However, they have a tough time closing the gap as they have no mobility, crowd control and a small effective radius.

Divers: The more mobile warrior sub-class are amazing at closing the gap and have a lot of damage and survival tools. Like their name suggests they are adept at diving right into the middle of the enemies and singling out a single person. They however have no way to get out after getting in.

Warlocks: A short-range mage class that wreaks havoc with sustained aoe damage. Their low range (but still far higher than the warriors) means they must be in the middle of the fray to maximise their efficiency.

Skirmishers: A rouge class that aims to shred through any nearby enemy that approaches. Because Skirmishers lack high-end burst damage or reliable ways of closing in on high-priority targets, they are instead armed with situationally powerful defensive tools to survive in the fray, along with extreme sustained damage to cut down even the most durable targets.

Catchers: specializing in locking down opponents or, in some cases, entire battlefields by creating intense zones of threat that only foolish enemies would dare wade through. Although not as reliant on their friends as their fellow support sub-class Enchanters, the fragile and immobile Catchers greatly benefit from allied presence – both to deter incoming danger and to help capitalize on targets theyve locked down.

I probably do not have multiple lives and if I die, I am dead. I want to pick a safer class however that is not my style. If I am going to be part of this shit I might as well be myself. In the higher levels, comfort matters far more than something being broken. Wait do they have balance patches? No that would not make sense unless we are actually in a simulation. Catchers seem nice but I do not like needing someone else to maximise my effectiveness. Warlocks seem good but if I am going to be a mage I might as well be a burst mage. Blowing someone up would be better. So that narrows it down to the warrior sub-class. They are all good when outnumbered, which is good since I will not be forced to team up with people. More options the better. Wait I can ask more questions.

”Bynd. What stats do skirmishers, divers and juggernauts spec into? ”

”They all spec into similar stats. Skirmishers and Divers like Dexterity and Strength the most and Juggernauts spec into Strength and Consitution. ” She replied. ”You can try out the Sub-classes if you like. Also, you are not locked into a sub-class. You can swap between them until you leave the tower. You can only do this once every month and you will have to wait for the next day for the swap to take effect. You can also redistribute your bonus stat points. You will not start with a sub-class and will only get it after you have completed the needed requirements. ”.

Custo thought for a few seconds. ”I choose Warrior! ” With that Bynds eyes glowed and she stretched out her wings. She started singing and her voice resonated with Custos body. He dropped to his knees. He could feed his DNA helix unravelling. What made him him was being changed.

”Let the rain pour purifying the doubt from your blade

Seek refuge in the void you have made

The darkness rises and the light ebbs,

Where is your refuge now ”

Pain shot threw Custo and shattered the void he was in.

”You stand on the edge

Fate rushing down upon you

Holding on by a single thread

As order knocks on your door

You hear the drums, the beating wings of a dragon.

You feel the raging wind, feel the death

Calling you to WAR ”

Custo was engulfed in darkness once more, floating in a void but it was not his void. It was alien. There was no comfort. No focus. He then awoke. Lying down on some grass. He struggled to his feet and looked around and found a stream. He tried walking towards it but fell and so crawled. He reached the stream and dunked his head inside it gulping down the water. Only then did he realise how hot he was. Custo pulled his head out and looked at his reflection. He still looked the same. Well apart from the dreads now scattered over his shoulders. He managed to stand once more and then noticed he was without a shirt and he was ripped.

Custo had the body he spent so long in the gym trying to craft. ”What happened to me? Can I check my stats again? They are probably different now. ” With that command, his stat page flew up in front of him.
