Imaginary Vision - The Black Void Within
<i>[Going through the stairway to the west would make Quintus, Penny and Takeno hear the faint sound of a school bell goes off in the distance, and the bickering of high schoolers is all around. One specific voice sounds angrier than the others, filled of resentment and disdain, as if pleading for all of them to shut up at once. At the end, an hourglass labelled as “Alt.199X” flickering with different colors awaits. Approaching it, they see visions of a teenager dressed in a white uniform and black hair sitting in the middle of a gym, drawing a tetragrammaton. He would place candles on the ends of the star right before offering some of his own blood to the center. Soon enough, as the young man impatiently waits for something to occur, a black vortex pulls him into a blank space where he is quickly surrounded by all kinds of demons. After these quick events unfold, the pair finds themselves waking up in the middle of a colorless classroom. The chairs and desks are all properly placed, and the chalkboard lacks any kind of dust on it. It is safe to assume that no one had been there, and yet, it seemed like at least one person was somewhere in the building, waiting for them.]</i> <center>- 0 -</center> <i>[The path of stairs leading towards the east reveals a hourglass rather quickly, labelled simply as “POTENTIAL”. Standing on the platform, they could hear someone typing on a keyboard. From there, they are also able to see a set of stairs leading down towards an hourglass without colors. Soon enough, the sound of typing on a keyboard stops, and is instead replaced with a calm voice.]</i> “Ah, it’s nice to finally meet you two. I was wondering when it was that someone from your group would come to this place. Please, don’t be afraid. You two have nothing to worry about.” <i>[As soon as this happens, they are able to see for a brief moment how a woman in a tight white dress with orange stripes puts a helmet on them both as they lie in some kind of capsule. Immediately after, they regain their senses inside an entirely white realm that feels completely real, and yet somehow, you can tell it’s a fake. Behind you is the exit to the strange maze, but ahead lies a straightforward path, alongside strange whispering and echoing voices.]</i> “Be careful! Remember that while inside the Virtual Battler you can’t die, but don’t overdo it!” <i>[A cheery female voice would tell them before they are left all alone to their devices.]</i>
Imaginary Vision - The Black Void Within
<i>[As Raidou moves ahead, he finds himself accompanied by Prima, who simply appeared by the young man’s side without even remembering how exactly it was that she got there, as if both people had always been there to begin with. They are able to grasp a bit more of their surrounding and its people. They can listen to some people happily singing and discussing recent events, such as how it is amazing that God had finally sent them their long-awaited messiah, he who would lead them to a new age and the promised land. The walls had ample screens with a resolution to its image that almost made it seem like nothing but a window; colors so vibrant it made reality look like a joke, or as if the eyes of each human was inherently faulty. On one of them, the biggest one, two people are desperately fighting for their lives. The text under it reads &quot;Shock! Messiah vs Anti-Messiah! The Repeat at the Valhalla Colosseum!&quot;. The Warrior in Yellow Raidou had seen before was clashing his sword against another one wearing a white armor and green coat; his hair was black and spiky and had a white COMP on his left wrist. Indeed, looking for long enough at his face would reveal an uncanny resemblance to Kazuya; but with an almost disgusting smirk full of arrogance.]</i> &quot;I will not be beaten, Aleph!! You, Anti-Messiah, have deceived the people for far too long!!&quot; <i>[A woman with straight black hair, pale skin, wearing a white and blue bandana over her head would appear on the screen. Her face was the spitting image of Yuka.]</i> &quot;Please, stop this Daleth!! Aleph, don't fight anymore!!&quot; &quot;Don't get in my way, Beth!&quot; <i>[And so, they keep clashing their swords as demons use their magic against one another. People watching would cheer on the man called &quot;Aleph&quot;, while badmouthing the other known as &quot;Daleth&quot;. Their drinks coming from the different bottles with all kinds of shape is red, and even some knight-looking people are slacking off. An older man dressed as the other appears and slaps the drink of the younger ones before yelling at them, forcing them to go back to their positions. One lets out a massive sigh before looking at Raidou straight to the eyes, and Gouto as well. He seems confused until the older one comes back.]</i> &quot;Kuzunoha!! Hurry the hell up, or I swear the 39th will hear about this!&quot; &quot;Alright, alright, I got you. Sorry...&quot; <i>[He would shrug and mutter something under his breath while looking extremely annoyed as he follows the man out a southern door. Outside, the Warrior in Yellow, &quot;Aleph&quot;, has a simple glass of water on his right hand, looking out to the horizon in absolute silence; not a single person daring to approach him for the moment for one reason or another.]</i> <center>- 0 -</center> <i>[Rowan, who was now falling into the abyss alongside Punk, would find his own speed to become rather slow thanks to the gravity bending ability of the other. Indeed, they would gracefully keep falling into the unknown depths as they see the rocks from before passing them; round rocks simply floating there for no apparent reason. Minutes would pass, and eventually, they would find themselves at the bottom. The circular wall surrounding them was just the same as the one they had seen the moment they were pulled into this strange realm. In front of them, a bizarre, circular door with golden boarders and red center was keeping them from the room ahead, from which a distorted young voice was coming from, alongside one belonging to a girl.]</i> ???: “So I have to deal with another labyrinth? What is up with that old man and mazes.” ???: “Could be worse, at least you get to fight some strong foes.” ???: “All of them are demon we already defeated back in the Vortex World anyways, I would rather have something new to fight.” ???: “If I didn’t know any better, I would call you a demon right from the get-go, geez.” <i>[Both voices keep bickering with one another, becoming more and more distant by the second.]</i>
Imaginary Vision - The Black Void Within
<i>[Raidou approaches the hourglass, and as soon as he does, strange music fill his ears. He can see one young man with long black hair and a strange armor of colors black and pale-yellow walking through a celebrating crowd of people dressed in white and blue. He approaches a separate balcony to gaze at the gigantic city below. Takeno and Quintus would not be able to see or hear any of this, however. Upon further inspection, it's easy to notice the hourglass is rather old, as if the last time it was ever cleaned was over 20 years ago. Then, in the blink of an eye, Raidou would disappear from where he was and to them, the hourglass would light up, creating a massive pillar of light into the infinite sky above. From the perspective of the devil summoner, however, he would find himself surrounded by the very same people he was observing moments ago. Indeed, he was now inside the visions of 20XX.]</i> <i>[Punk would suddenly find himself in the roof of a building. Looking over at the city, he would notice thunders falling from the sky as the horizon folds in on itself violently. Buildings fall apart but others remain in perfect condition, and where trees and vegetation once were, sand replaces their place. In a matter of seconds, the city of Tokyo becomes a sphere in which the sky is another part of the city, and in the center, a sun-like orb floats with a perpetual white light. Prima would only see the lone one disappears in the blink of an eye as she approaches the hourglass with no issues. However, nothing happens for her, as she sees or hears nothing coming from it. But she may notice the pillar of light that's coming from higher up, in the direction Raidou, Quintus and Takeno went. Meanwhile, Punk would find himself in a closed off crimson tunnel with a dark void below. About three seconds pass before he actually realizes he is freefalling at incredible speeds through the tunnel and into the depths below, with tons of floating rocks are quickly approaching. Given the speed at which they are, if the rocks hit, it would prove to be deadly.]</i> <i>[As soon as the pillar lights up, those who remain would suddenly be able to tell faint flickering colors in the different direction they can choose. The North East would feature azure, dark green, light blue, green, yellow and grey. The East would have crimson, azure, dark green, light blue, green and red. Further into the East, a faint aura could be felt, although colorless, similar to the hourglass waiting at the South East. The South West would feature crimson, dark green, purple, red and grey. The West would feature crimson, azure, dark green, purple, yellow and grey. Finally, North West would have no colors.]</i>
Imaginary Vision - The Black Void Within
<i>[As Raidou, Takeno and Quintus make their way up the stairway towards the north-east, they feel a distant choir make a peaceful and calming melody. It was slow; angelic. Amidst the music, they would make up random words hidden among the notes, such as &quot;Messiah&quot;, &quot;Hawk&quot;, &quot;Elder&quot; and &quot;Order&quot;. Once at the top, a new hourglass is visible, but this one flickers between different colors. It goes from yellow, to azure, to light blue, to dark green. It beckons for those with matching colors to get closer, and, upon closer inspection, the hourglass would be simply labeled as &quot;20XX&quot;, the last two digits being impossible to make out.]</i> <i>[Making their way to the bottom, Rowan, Prima and Punk would hear the faint noise of cackling. Bones shattering could be heard hiding among the insane giggling and laughter with distorted voices. Certain words could be understood, however; &quot;General&quot;, &quot;Fiend&quot;, &quot;Lord&quot; and finally, &quot;Parasyte&quot;. Once at the end, the hourglass of the platform would flicker between different colors; crimson, purple, red, grey and dark green. It beckons for those with matching colors to get closer, and, upon closer inspection, the hourglass would be simply labeled as &quot;200X&quot;, the last digit being impossible to make out.]</i> <i>[The stairways leading towards the south-east would be mostly silent, were it not for the distant sound of waves and different buildings being constructed. &quot;Gaean&quot;, &quot;Messian&quot;, &quot;Social community&quot; and &quot;Cathedral&quot; are words that stand out in the calm. At the end, a colorless hourglass awaits with 6 small hourglass-shaped drawings on its base. You have the feeling that this hourglass won't work as it is right now.]</i>
Imaginary Vision - The Black Void Within
<i>[The longer they stayed in their initial platform, more details were easier to make out. Of course, there were still different directions to take: North-East taking to the highest platform; East taking to a nearby platform; South-East being a rather short distance; South-West taking to the deepest platform; West taking to a higher platform; North-West taking to a seemingly faraway platform, downwards. Loking to their North, they wiuld be able to clearly see a separate plarform with a portal, or rather, a few of them. In front of them, a man covered in shadows would wait, his back pressed against a nearby broken pillar with both arms crossed, just staring at the group. Furthermore, the hourglass next to them had five drawings of smaller hourglasses, with a small white line drawn on the floor connecting it to the gap in the North. Finally, they would notice a slight detail in each other. They all had an aura of different colors: Prima and Ene would both share a Light Blue one; Raidou, Rowan and Spell Punk would all share a Dark Green aura; Quintus and Takeno on the other hand, had a Crimson aura; Penny's would be color Grey; and finally, Tot's was a simple shade of Green.]</i>
Imaginary Vision - The Black Void Within
<i>[As the group goes through the portal, they are surrounded by nothing but darkness at first. The air is rather thin, but a general sense of dread looms. At the same time, they are able to somewhat tell faint voices coming from somewhere, some praying, others cursing their fate. In the distance, a dragon with human arms, seven spiked red heads raises up and roars in sequence, and each time, a blinding flash of light would follow. Each flash would force images upon their eyes. A large tower in the middle of a romantic city crumbles on top of scared people running away; a white mansion filled with politicians is burnt to a crisp by shadowy horned beings; rays of light as powerful as the Sun descend from the skies and decimate those hiding in the dunes; mountains break apart as bombs go off on top of them, while the falling rocks destroy thousands of houses. With each flash, time would keep advancing from 1992, all the way to 2022. The faint voices would turn into screams of horror and pleads for help that would muffle all the crying among the noise. Eventually, each one of the voices would be silenced. In the end, all they hear is the wind.]</i> You've missed quite a bit, everyone. Indeed, the entire world crumble into nothingness. <i>[Melbourne would say from somewhere as the find themselves standing on grey platforms placed randomly in one place or the other, above or below with no real order. Into the distance, squares of similar color would be equally placed on what seemed to be an infinite cube. Indeed, they were floating in the middle of nothing, but their platform with a giant hourglass in the middle of it. From there, they could notice different sets of stairs taking into different directions, and a cut off path right to their north. There would be a long stairway leading up on their north-east; a simple path leading towards the east; another path towards their south-east; a stairway leading into the depths to their south-west; a short stairway leading up to the west; a path going towards their north-west. There would be no other signs of life anywhere, and their bodies retained their physical form, but the rules were the same as before.]</i> <center><b>[The gear they used in 1992 is all back, including the objects collected in the Diamond Realm. Furthermore, non-humans have been returned into their human forms. Finally, their powers are changed into their weaker forms.]</b></center>

I see most of you don't have much too say, indeed. <i>[Melbourne remains motionless, but even a quick look into his void eyes, it would seem apparent that he was amused, even excited for what was about to happen. He would clap his hands, and the people all around would come to a halt. The air becomes lighter, and the colors fade. The people turn to see every single one of the people called to this place at this specific time.]</i> Indeed, it is time to go right to the point. No more &quot;cryptic&quot; speak, as you indeed say. Last time, you lost someone... Tatsuya Suou. He died alongside other millions the moment the ICBMs exploded. In light of those events... I called upon a replacement. <i>[Melbourne would lazily point towards Takeno. After this, the people around them would begin to melt into a black substance, just like last time.]</i> This time, you must make your way into the future; the future that was meant for all of you. But don't be afraid, as Raidou Kuzunoha the 14th indeed knows this place. I welcome you into this new &quot;street&quot;. One most forget about! <i>[Melbourne disappear in the blink of an eye, and in his place, a simple portal remains.]</i> Welcome... to the &quot;Akarana Corridor&quot;. <i>[Would be the last thing he says before his voice can't be heard anymore.]</i>
Imaginary Vision - The Pale Cloud Above and The Diamond Realm
It shall come, it shall come indeed <i>[Melbourne would say before leaving a notebook on top of the chair he was sitting on. After this, he would simply disappear from sight, like he was never there to begin with. The last thing that would remain is the notebook with its front labeled &quot;The Pale Cloud Above&quot;.]</i> <center>=== END ===</center>
Imaginary Vision - The Pale Cloud Above and The Diamond Realm
En no Ozuno: &quot;Indeed, there is something strange with the boy that just arrived. Whatever it is that you all mean with your words, the exit is right behind me. For now, I depart. I wish you all the best.&quot; <i>[Indeed, a door would appear behind En no Ozuno and it would open itself, giving way into a white light that makes it impossible to see through. The man would instead take the way to his left and simply walk right through the door that may have always been there, in search for the young Kazuya.]</i> En no Ozuno: &quot;Could this be fate? Or perhaps...&quot; <i>[The man would mutter to himself. If anyone were to cross the white light, they would find themselves in the exact positions they were in right before being taken back to 1992. In fact, mere seconds had passed back in their world. They would also find that everything they had gotten would disappear, including their equipment and the return of the full power they normally possess. The only exception to the rule of not keeping anything, would be Raidou and Prima with the Murakumo and Tundra Seal respectively. For a quick moment, they would even see the image of Tatsuya standing right there where he used to, only for him to suddenly drop on the floor and vanish into the air. As expected, Melbourne was there too.]</i> You survived; did you enjoy this game? I'm certain that a look into Kazuya's past was educational. You should know that such state is the real destiny of the world, or it was, before something made it change at some point, creating all sorts of conclusions at once. Indeed, a great intro. Do not worry though, those who got special items shall get them permanently... at the end. The Warlock's Gauntlet, the Ragnarok Magatama, Mumler's Photography and the Espada shall return once you do so as well. <i>[The mouthless man would cross his arms and just sit there motionlessly with both eyes closed, quite pleased.]</i> How would you rate this experience?
Imaginary Vision - The Pale Cloud Above and a Last Stand
<i>[If the men were to leave the truck, they would be surrounded by people in complete silence. Some were openly weeping, some had nothing but rage in their eyes. Whatever was the case, no one could look away from the gigantic pale cloud above. Whatever was that the people were feeling when they finally gazed upon it? There is no way of knowing, all one can truly understand is that countless lives have been lost. The Group Leader would leave the truck shocked, trembling. Kouji would simply have a face of disappointment; of frustration. Kazuma was crying quite horribly. Tsukasa, on the other hand would, kneel down.]</i> Tsukasa: &quot;Thank god we're alive...&quot; Kouji: &quot;Is that...even a good thing?&quot; Kazuma: &quot;...and I was supposed to go pick up my little boy two weeks ago.&quot; <i>[If they were to look among the crowd, they would perhaps recognize the face of a man with a hat and void eyes, of mouthless face. He would simply lock eyes with he who dared to look at him. Whatever the case, eventually, they would start to feel lighter and lighter; their eyes going white. This would take a couple of seconds, but after it, they would be transported somewhere else. A room with people they should already know, and that had diamond walls.]</i>

<i>[And so it happens once more, they are all called to one place, like something deep within wants them there, no matter what. This time, it was in the middle of Shibuya Crossing. The people were busy walking towards their destinations, and the cars wait for the red lights to end so they can get through too. In the middle of the street, there waited a man in suit and hat; his hair was a messy brown and he lacked a mouth. His posture, so calm and yet so still raised no worries. No cars would question him being there, and the people didn't even notice his existence. Indeed, Melbourne would not allow that to happen as he waits for his participants. It was now time again for a new task that they would need to survive.]</i> You can listen to my voice. You should hurry and meet me here.
Imaginary Vision - The Pale Cloud Above and a Last Stand
<i>[Their mind was set, they were to go back to the base and finally figure something to do in the incoming disasters. Some had gotten there first; such was the case of Rowan and the people he had saved back in Yongen-Jaya, but later on, Tatsuya and Raidou would get back with a group of injured people, including Yuka's father. Rowan had gotten there are around 05:30pm, meanwhile the other two had gotten there an hour later, at 06:30pm. It was now about 06:45, and the civilians were finally getting some quick treatment thanks to Yuka's father quick actions. It was interesting to note however, that only these three had made it back, with everyone else completely missing; not even some info had gotten back from them.]</i> So that's the situation on the others, we had calculated more or less when they were supposed to get back but...nothing, so we may have to fear the worst for now, as we must keep moving. <i>[Would say the Resistance Man. All three of them were back at the main conference room they were using to give their debriefing. While patients were getting treated, and Boss and his friends were finally resting and eating rations, a single mature woman would be crying awfully, with such desperation that it just became one with all the other people in grief.]</i> Still, there is one pressing issue and that's the fact that demons are gathering nearby. We've had some people scout the area and we've learned that a creature wearing a large, black robe and holding a giant scythe is getting them to do this... and interestingly, he's riding a horse, a quite pale one. If I didn't know any better, I would refer to him as some kind of &quot;Horsemen of the Apocalypse&quot;, and...at this point it may be just that. <i>[He would point to the North on the map.]</i> They are definitely going to attack, some weaker demons have come before and their numbers are increasing, so I can tell you now we will not survive a full-scale attack. So, our options are these. <i>[He would then point to the West, a specific way that may take them a place faraway.]</i> We will get civilians on trucks and only get within them a handful of soldiers to make guard. Meanwhile some of us will stay and get enough time for people to get ready, get out and get as far away as they possibly can before we get overrun. Still I believe we can win., no matter what. Our leader Yuka is with us and went off to deal with Thorman just 40 or so minutes ago with that kid Kazuya. I can believe we can do this because they defeated Gouto's forces. <i>[After this, he would take a sip from his beer.]</i> The operation will begin in 15, perhaps 30. We are already preparing and... The question now is… what will you do? You are certainly strong, but I cannot ask you to stay here and possibly lose your lives. That &quot;Pale Rider&quot; is certainly the main guy in that small army, but the most dangerous part of all this is the incredible number of demons around. Whatever happens, whatever you decide to do, even if it is going inside the trucks. ... Good luck. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- <i>[Tot and Penny had finally made it back to the Imperial Palace, which meant that they were something around an hour before they get back to the base. They had met not a single demon on their journey, and in fact the streets were getting cleaner, as if the demons, not finding any other humans, had turned to eating each other or even eating the rubble and garbage. The path ahead is still long, and it is possible they feel a tad more rested.]</i>

<i>[Perhaps out of curiosity, clumsiness or a general desire to survive, you have taken the path of the &quot;Safe Escape&quot; at different spaces, and at different times. Despite this detail, they have all managed to get here at the same time. This realm, and different plane of existence entirely, is completely white with a light blue shade to it, with hints to a darker blue. The walls are made from a shining diamond, to a crazy extent. As they head inside, they feel a sense of inner peace. Of course this only lasts a moment, as they are reminded of the situation at hand.]</i> You've arrived, I see. <i>[A man in white robes, long hair and a large staff awaits them.]</i> Primarina, Spell Punk, &quot;Ene&quot;, Quintus. <i>[The room itself had nothing but one door at the wall to the front.]</i>

Melbourne, a sort of strange set of words pull together. This man, too, is strange, for he has no mouth, and his eyes can pierce even that beyond the stars. The people are purposly avoiding this man, and there is no reason to question such actions.]</i> It's about time. <i>[He says with no mouth, and no one seems to be able to hear...but you, the chosen few, the newcommers, but most of all, the Survivors, the three sacrificial lambs. He sits there, waiting for the moment to come, in which they will all gather by their own free will, in front of him.]</i>
