A man wearing blue jeans and a white t-shirt woke inside surrounded very thick darkness. The man got up and tried to look around through the darkness that surrounded. He had blue-green eyes, short dark brown hair, and some stubble on his chin. He finally asked himself.
"Is this the shadow realm? It's a lot darker than I thought it would be." The man began to ask himself, as he tries to see through the darkness.
"Hell...Being this place for too long can drive any person insane...I should screw figuring out where I am and start finding a way out." The man said as he began to walk forward. Few minutes pass as he walks through.
"I don't think this isn't working..." He said while scratching the back of his head. Little did he know a figure shrouded using the shadows.
"Master Matt, welcome to the world of Konin. Well actually this is a world between Earth and Konin. You are being summoned to Konin through some ancient powerful magic." The shrouded man says to Matt with a calm and deep voice. Matt turns around toward the direction of the voice.
"It's great to meet you and all, but...what? I'm being summoned to a world I've never heard of and does this person EVEN know me. More importantly how do YOU, know me." Matt began to shout at the man.
"Calm down. The summoning only summons somebody from your world at random, so the answer to your question is no, he or she does not know you. I only know your name because I'm the Overseer of this place, nothing escapes from my sight." The Overseer said maintaining his calm composure.
"So you're basically a 'god' of the Shadow Realm?" Matt asked the Overseer.
"This is not what you call the "Shadow Realm," this is the Abyss. Like I said before, is a world between yours and Konin." The Overseer said to the young man.
"So...Since I'm being "Summoned" to this Konin place, how do I get there?" Matt began to ask the Overseer while trying to comprehend what he just heard. The Overseer opens two passages of light to each side of Matt.
"The door to you right, will lead to Konin. The door to your left, will lead you back to Earth. We already know what your answer will be, don't we? Your curiosity will overwhelm you and you will enter the passage to your right." The Overseer explains.
"Thank you, I will be on my way now." Matt says as he walks into the passage to his right. As Matt exits the passage, he notices breath taking landscape of mountains and forests. Matt looks down to notice that he is floating in midair.
"Wait...How am I floating?...Holy Shit!" Matt began to shout as he began to plummet to the ground. Matt crashes into the ground, groaning in pain.
"Why couldn't that damn Overseer just make that door over two feet over the ground..." Matt mumbles to himself as he gets up. Matt looks around him noticing the copper pickaxe, copper ax, and the copper spear.
"At least he was kind enough to give me a few stuff...But where the hell am I going to keep this stuff?" Matt said while holding the pickaxe and the spear. About a minute later while trying to plan out what to do next, Matt hears a shout of a man coming towards him.
"Hello there, traveler!" The friendly voice shouted while he ran towards Matt. Matt pointed his lance at the man running towards him.
"Noah, whoa, whoa! I'm not someone you need to worry yourself over!" The man jumped back when Matt pointed his lance at the man.
"My name is Geoff. Geoff the Guide. I help out people who seem lost, and you seem lost, my good man." Geoff told Matt, with a friendly voice.
"Excuse my lack of trust, but I see no reason to trust you. You could easily be leading me into a trap." Matt began to tell Geoff with speculation.
"I had a feeling you'd say that. We guides are subordinates of the Overseer, we help those who are summoned here from your world." Geoff explained to Matt, to fill in the lack of trust.
"I see...Do you know just who summoned me here, and why?" Matt asked the guide, trying to find answers.
"Unfortunately I do not, but I can take you back to a small village where some people who are from this world reside." Geoff offered Matt.
"Well...I'm not in much of a position to deny. My answer is yes, I'll gladly accept your offer." Matt said to Geoff.
"Excellent! Well then, off we go, but first I must give you this!" The guide gives Matt a small sphere.
"What is this?" Matt asks the guide, while staring at the small sphere.
"That is the 'Pocket.' It uses magic to store things you find lying here or there inside it. It is very useful when you have too many things to carry at once. Just think of the items you have that you want to be stored." Geoff explained. Matt's spear, pickaxe and ax disappear into the small sphere. Matt than stores the sphere in one of his pockets.
"Now then, let us go!" The guide grabs Matt's arm and they rush off. About a hour passes after Matt met Geoff.
"Well...Can you tell me a little history about this place?" Matt asks the Geoff, with much curiosity.
"I will gladly explain! Long ago, the goddess of this world, named Slarra, created this world using her magic. She created all of the beings such as the goblins, birds, animals, and more! One day she wondered if there was anybody like her somewhere else. She created a magic of summoning, she transported a man from your world to hers. Eventually the two became closer and closer, which they fell in love with each other. They eventually started a family and a new race of people, called the Srrle. More people were transported using this summoning technique. And thus the race prospered." Geoff explained with much excitement.
"Wow, interesting." Matt said with intrigue.
"Ah! We are finally here! You will love the people here, I'm sure of it!" Geoff with much excitement. The two look reach the small village and begin to make their way towards it. The guide drags Matt into a small store.
"This is the merchant, Oliver, he sells a variety of items." Matt looked up to see an old man with a white beard, a brown coat, and blue jeans.
"Why hello young man, would you like to buy blocks of dirt?" The merchant asks Matt with a rough voice.
"Uh...No thank you." Matt said to the tall old man.
"Oliver, this is a person from another world, his name is Matt." Geoff explained to Oliver.
"Ah, sorry for my rudeness. My name is Oliver, it is a pleasure to meet you...Are sure you don't want any dirt blocks? Oliver asked Matt.
"Its great to meet you, Oliver, and no thank you." Matt says to the merchant.
"Now then, Matt, lets go see the other people here." Matt and the Guide walk out of the store to see the others. The two walk into a small house where a nurse is patching another man's wound.
"Well then, your arm is all patched up, just don't get yourself into more trouble." The nurse said with somewhat of a harsh tone to the man. Geoff and Matt walk up to the nurse and man.
"Claire. Blade, this is Matt. He will be living in this village with us." Geoff introduced Matt to the two. Blade was the first to walk up to Matt and shook hands with him.
"Hey Matt, the name is Blade. I'm one of the fighters of this small village. I use an iron boomerang and a silver bow. What kind of weapons do you use?" The fighter asked Matt.
"Hey...well can't say I was given a choice for a weapon...but I have this copper spear." Matt said to Blade. The nurse then walks up to Matt.
"Hello, Matt. My name is Claire, I am the nurse of this small village. Come to me if you're hurt, but I don't work for free." The introduced herself to Matt.
"It is nice to meet, Claire." Matt said to the nurse.
"There is one more person I'd like you to meet." Geoff said to Matt. The two walked out of the house to meet someone entering the village.
"Ah, here he comes now. Serion! Come here!" Geoff shouted to the man. The man walked over to the two.
"Who is this?" Serion asked Geoff.
"I'm Matt, judging by what Geoff shouted, you are Serion?" Matt asked Serion.
"Yup, that is me." Serion said sheathing his blade. The large sword had a small handle inside the blade.
"Interesting blade you have there." Matt said, pointing at Serion's blade.
"It is one interesting blade." Serion shrugged.
"The nurse is one bundle of joy, isn't she?" Matt joked. Serion began to laugh.
"I think you and I will be good friends. I guess you want me to train him tomorrow?" Serion asked the guide.
"That'd be great." Geoff said to Serion.
"Alright, meet me outside the village tomorrow, Matt." Serion said to Matt before walking back to his home.
"Luckily for you Matt, we have a spare home for you to reside in. Come with me." The two walked to the spare house. Geoff opens the door, the two enters inside the house.
"So, what do you think of it?" Geoff asked. Matt takes a little look around; The house has a table and chair, an anvil, a bed, a closet, crafting table, and a furnace.
"It's nice." Matt said while walking around inside.
"I'll be right back, wait here." Geoff said, then walks out. Matt walks up to the closet and opens it, to find nothing. He shuts the closet and walks over to furnace. Geoff walks back into Matt's house.
"You can't be wearing that outfit forever so I got you something from Oliver's shop." Geoff said, carrying a black trench coat, a brown shirt, and white jeans.
Matt takes the clothes from the Geoff and places them onto the crafting table.
"Thank you, Geoff." Matt said to the guide.
"It was no problem. I'll be heading out now, just give me a holler if you need anything." Geoff said with a friendly tone before leaving. Matt shuts the door when the guide leaves. Matt walks over to the bed and lies down on it.
"This world truly is interesting. I'm kinda glad I chose to enter that passage." Matt smirks before going to sleep.
