is temples. ”The Black Market? How did I end up playing a game supervised by the Black Market? But that would explain why the games main essence is playing around peoples memories. ”

Obviously, the memory Keen gained is not his. He knows for sure that he is only eighteen years old and is currently in college by this month, which is August of 2051. Jun is over 28 years old by now.

”How can I get rid of this memory? This is not mine. ” He looks at the place where Juns body disintegrated earlier. According to the Adjudicators memories, once all memories are depleted while inside Esprit, the person actually dies in real life.

Although he must feel remorse for having killed a human, having access to Juns memories filled with bloodshed makes him adamant that the person deserved this fate. He was already messed up since his birth. He even killed his own family.

”I need to get this memory off me before I become as messed up as that guy. ”

The glass room begins cracking from all sides.

A dark figure falls from the cloudy sky at an immense speed, only to stop the momentum at the last second. The impact with the ground produces sharp gusts of wind reaching a hundred meters but no crater. Instead, only a mist of dust hides whatever humanoid creature bears those two glimmering scarlet eyes.

Everyone in the town stops for a while to await the revelation of the newcomers identity. No one has ever appeared that way in this place. At least, as far as their current memories remember.

When the dust finally settles, the onlookers see nothing. The humanoid figure. The pair of ominous, scarlet eyes. All gone.

Keen finally arrives in Topsy Town, the starting point for his memory-recovering mission. He can feel both anxiety and anger. There is definitely something amiss in his memory because a sharp pain occurs in his brain whenever he tries to rummage through the emptied pages of his mind. However, his body is shaking in anger with the knowledge he gained from Jun.

This is not a game. He clenches a fist.

He walks around the town wearing the scarlet burnoose he tailored as a hooded long coat, along with the gauntlet and boots he acquired from the Adjudicator. Having an ability class that specializes in the darkness, Keen is unable to ascertain his position under the broad daylight of Topsy Town. If not for his protective clothing, he may have already turned into a steaming meat by now. Or maybe not. That is an experiment he cannot take.

The Guild Hall stands tall at the center of town around ten storeys high, with a plaza filled with people surrounding it. The markets are placed on the east while the adventurers lodgings, townsfolk and farmlands are on the west side. The house of noble family NPCs are in the south, while the north is reserved for the local military. The main gates are only located at the north, with an emergency underground passage existing in the south. High walls measuring 50 meters surround the entire town.

The houses are built with wood and cement. Electricity only exists in Esprit as magic, not as an economic energy source.

As he continues his scouting, one particular subtlety Keen notices is the presence of a mob of people at a dark alley between the nobles houses in the south. Their eyes are reddish and skin pale with throbbing veins.

Esprit doesn allow the people transferred here like Keen to easily distinguish other peoples ability class so he needs to carefully examine them through their gear and equipment. That being so, the mob consists of many melee fighters with either hatchets, axe, sabers, long blades, and spear. However, there are also long range fighters with mage staff, crossbows, and even familiars.

Keen looks near his right shoulder, but find no prompts from the system to engage in battle. He is ready to ignore the mob and proceed outside town to start defeating monsters and beasts to acquire Release, but reverses his decision instantly when he hears a womans scream in the middle of the group.

Putting his new gear and a newly unlocked skill called , he plunges into battle.
