Welcome to Dark Souls Online (DSO)
We begin the adventure with our adventurers, Keima, Blair, Daniel and Adnan, deciding to jump into DSO together on the 17th of June, 2045. But due to certain circumstances Adnan and Daniel were unable to join Keima and Blair. The latter two decide to jump into the game by themselves. They reach the center where they could dive into DSO and upon entering, they head to the General Store for General Stuff in the General Area (GS^2 GA) to buy equipment and weapons. While Ephraim(Keima) goes around and buys items that may be helpful to them, Lowkey(Blair) finds a Deva and approaches her asking for her help as he was “new” to the game. The Deva introduces herself as Amanda Seyfreid (Don’t judge me on the name), one of the Game Masters (GM) of the game, who provides Lowkey with information of a good place for an encounter, then also teaches him the game’s Friends & Parties functionality. Amanda then parts ways as she has work to do. Lowkey meets back up with Ephraim and tells him what he found out from Amanda. As they head towards the exit they see a huge, muscular guy, flipping a sign, shouting “Guides Here!” The shop that sold guides was manned by Amanda. They buy a guide (a red pixie) which turns out to be a rare type. After a few parting words, they both leave the store.
You haven’t had Cookies?
The adventurers, Ephraim and Lowkey, follow the hunting trail at the South-East to reach the encounter that Amanda had told them about. They find the ruins of Castle Worshimnat where they faced 4 Decrepit Skeletons. After the skeletons were taken care of, 3 Lizardfolk blocked their exit and started threatening them. Ephraim started conversing with the Lizardfolk, who had a really deep, growling voice, and asked them to at least try to talk properly without growling. The Lizards then put on an Australian accent and Ephraim congratulated them by giving them an imaginary cookie. The Lizards having never heard about cookies inquire Ephraim to explain what it is. Hearing this Ephraim asks the Lizards to put down their weapons so that he could make cookies for them. The Lizards agreed to this, settle down and have cookies and milk with the adventurers. After they finish, the Lizards reveal their intentions to stop fighting and start up a Bakery in Ephraim’s name. Ephraim and Lowkey take their leave, feeling happy to have introduced Cookies into the game.
Is this a date?
After the meeting with the Lizard Cookie Trio, Lowkey receives a message from Amanda, who seems pissed, asking him to buy her a drink for making her work her butt off trying to replicate Cookies into the game. Lowkey agrees and takes Amanda to Le Chateau de Complex for dinner. Lowkey borrows some fine clothes from Ephraim to impress Amanda. Amanda, on the other hand, wears a simple purple leather tunic with little golden floral embroidery on the stomach, purple silk gloves that covered her forearms, and plain black breeches over black leather boots. Lowkey picks her up from her shop and heads towards Le Chateau. Upon reaching the palace, Lowkey becomes the most gentlemanly gentleman ever to be gentle and takes the expensive seat on the roof of the place. They start talking about random stuff (you know the usual date shit), and order Ratatouille and Arbor Gold, to douse it down. They finish their dinner and head back and, since Amanda needed to go back to her workplace, Lowkey drops her off back at her shop. They part ways with Amanda giving Lowkey a peck on the cheeks.
What do you mean by we?
While Lowkey was trying to be lovey-dovey with Amanda, Ephraim finds himself alone and with nothing better to do. So he goes around exploring everything and keeping an eye out for any quests. As he was going around the shopping district, a hooded figure stops him and asks Ephraim for help. The hooded figure informs Ephraim that he was part of a group that accepted jobs of sorts and as they were short of available employees at the moment, he asked Ephraim to kidnap the Lieutenant Commander Raktapor Azreen and bring him to them. Ephraim asks the hooded figure the details of where to take the Lieutenant, how to contact him and the like. After Ephraim accepts the quest, Lowkey comes up shouting “Kei-kun! Kei-kun!” While Lowkey ran to where Ephraim was, the hooded figure said “Farewell, Drifter” and turned into mist, disappearing right before Ephraim’s eyes.
