He close the door and he sit down on the bed. He lay down for five minutes and then he get up.

His hunger is no longer a problem. There was some bread on the man fridge so Azief helps himself.

And now he is getting up.

If he keeps lying down he will be asleep before he knows it. For now there is another thing he must do, a most important task.

What important task?

Because now it is time for him to class up.

‘Hehehehe’ he smiles in happiness. Class up! Isn’t this the main reason he runs all the way here, other than dodging the stiffs?

Surely he is now in a safe zone right? There are also the items and the skill books he never had the chance to check before.

First he arranges everything from its types.

13 Vials, 5 rings, a variety of items, from boots to paulders, hundreds of golden coins, and 7 skill books.

First he examines the ring. There are 5 rings he got from his effort. He checks it. And a status window appears in front of his eyes.

STORAGE RING

-ABLE TO STORE 99 ITEMS OF THE WORLD ORB. NO ADDITIONAL EFFECTS.

‘Storage ring!’ Azief exclaimed gleefully.

‘I should have used this when I was running away.’ He remembers of the things he couldn’t loot because of the lack of space and the fact that he had to lighten his load.

Even though it has no other additional buff at least it could help me stores thing. And when I have time I need to get back the loot.

Azief quickly put the ring into one of his finger. Then he checks the second.

RING OF MINIMAL STRENGTH.

-INCREASE STRENGTH BY 2.

‘Good’ Azief said. More strength. It will make his killing easier.

What Azief like is that the rings has no durability restriction or time restriction in the rings like weapons.

At least even if he keeps wearing it, it would not suddenly crack. But Azief think that it could be destroyed if it is attacked.

Azief also put the ring on his right hand finger.

Then he checks another. This one ring gives a dark luster and aura of power. Azief took it and examine it.

RING OF DARK SPIRIT.

RARE ITEMS. IT DEPENDS ON LUCK AND PERSEVERANCE. BY KILLING MANY MUTATED SAPIENS, THERE IS ONE IN A MILLION CHANCES THIS RING WILL APPEARS.

PART OF THE RANKING PROGRAM, IT ONLY HAS 100 IN EXISTENCE. ANYONE WHO HAS MADE THEMSELVES IN THE RANKING OF THE WORLD ORB IS ELIGIBLE TO GET A CHANCE IN OBTAINING THIS RING.

ADD 10 TO SPIRIT AND CAN BE ENHANCED WITH THE SOUL OF MUTATED SAPIENS UNTIL IT REACHED ITS LIMIT.

‘What the hell? Ten to spirit. You are too nice, World Orb! Too nice. HEHEHE’ Azief was about to scream.

10 Spirit. His spirit consumption problem has just been solved. Of course Azief equipped it too.

At least his spirit can be used at the same time he is using it to tame the badger. Not even one day pass and he still has 14 days before he has a reliable protector.

A tank. That is what Azief imagine.  A badger with an offensive power that sweeps everything.

And he will kill steal. After all the badger is his pet. There is no problem if he kill steal. Safe and protected while he reaps the benefits.

Then he checks the other two.

One of them is Ring of Speed which adds 1 to agility and another was another ring of minimal strength.

Azief equipped all of it into his right hand finger. Bling! Bling! He mused smiling, looking at his status.

NAME:            NOT YET GIVEN

GENDER:         MALE

LEVEL:                         17

CLASS:             NONE

STRENGTH:     18+6

AGILITY:          22+1

VITALITY:        9

STAMINA:       16+2

SPIRIT:             17+10

ENDURANCE: 10

EQUIPPED:      Mutated Sapiens Protective Glove

Storage Ring

Ring of Minimal Strength.

Ring of Minimal Strength.

Ring of Dark Spirit.

Ring of Speed

Then he checks the vials. He has 6 blue vials; each one restores 10 stamina, 2 red vials that restore 10 vitality and one green vials that restore spirits.

The golden coins are stored in the storage rings. Before he checks the items he decided to class up first.

Class up! He said in his mind.

YOU HAVE FULFILLED THE REQUIREMENT TO CLASS UP. THESE ARE THE OPTIONS. PLEASE CHOOSE CAREFULLY.

And list of class appears. There is the generic one. Paladin, Knights, Warriors, Archers, Healers.

They can be chosen for infinite times. No matter who anyone can choose this class.

He is not trying to be a generic character. Even though the normal class is easy to obtain and has its own advantage he had already had a plan in his mind.

He will treat this like a game.

Then Azief tries to ask.

‘Is there any unique class or rare class? Or maybe even secret class?’

UNIQUE CLASS ACCESSED.

Then a list appears in front of Azief eyes and he reads the first five.

EARTH CONTROLLER

ICE SOVEREIGN

WEAPON LORD

BEAST KING

SHADOW LORD

His eyes look until the bottom. It was about a 300 unique class.

‘Variety of choice’ he said.

First Azief check Earth controller.

AFFINITY WITH NATURE. THOSE WHO IS EARTH CONTROLLER COULD CONTROL THE EARTH, HAVE POWER BESTOWED BY THE EARTH ITSELF.

CAN SENSE THING UNDERGROUND. ABILITIES MANIFESTED WILL BECOME STRONGER BY EACH SUCCESSIVE LEVELING.

REQUIRES 30 STRENGTH DURING CLASS UP. HALF OF AGILITY WILL BE TRANSFERRED TO STRENGTH.

30 strength! Azief is just 25 and that is because of his items buffs. Without it his strength is just 18.

30 strength! Anyone who has such stats could clearly just choke the stiff head to kill it.

Then he checks the others.

Ice Sovereign requires living in the Icy region. What a weird requirement. Most likely like Russia.

Maybe someone from Russia will chose this Azief mused. Or maybe anyone from the Antarctica? North Pole?

Then he checks the requirements for Weapon Lord

Weapon Lord requires comprehension in weapons. Martial Artist would be suitable for this, Azief thought to himself.

Beast King requires a pet. Azief still has two weeks before he got his first pet. How could he wait for the pet to be tamed before he class up?

Does anyone already have a pet at this point of time?

That would make his survival in jeopardy if he has to wait that long. Now. He wants to class up now. But he also wants a unique class.

From what he reads on the interface once the Unique class is chosen no one could chose it again. Unless the Chosen dies.

Those who chose the Unique Class is refer to as Chosen. This is not a term Azief make up; it is described in the explanation for unique class.

It means there are only 300 people in this world that will have unique class.

While being normal class also have its advantage, unique class is always better. Isn’t that always the case?

The rarer things are, usually they are more valuable. And most of the stories he reads about game in internet usually the protag always get a secret class or unique class.

Like that Wee-

Anyway, it’s just good. Sometimes you have to gamble. Then Azief look at Shadow Lord requirement.

SHADOW LORD

THE SOVEREIGN OF DARKNESS. THE SHADOW LORD WORKS IN DARKNESS AND HAVE THEIR POWER FROM DARKNESS.

THEY WORK IN THE SHADOWS, NIMBLE AND FAST. IN THE DARKNESS OF NIGHT THEIR POWER WILL UNSTOPPABLE.

REQUIRES 20 AGILITY DURING THE TIME OF CLASS UP. CHOOSING THIS CLASS WILL CONVERT HALF OF YOUR STRENGTH TO AGILITY.

Convert half! He is clearly shocked.

18 divided by 2 is 9.

That means I have to sacrifice my hard earned 9 stats points to get this class. Is it worth it? He asks himself.

Shadow Lord. The name seems domineering. But is it worth it? Everyone knows that strength is important and now it wants me to sacrifice it?

What if he chooses it and regrets his decision. I don’t think I can change my class after I chose it he mused.

Azief then check other classes but most of them have their own weird requirements. Some sacrifice agility for strength some convert vitality to spirit.

Azief even spotted Grand Priest Necromancer but the requirement is too harsh. Whoever choses it must have a great backup because all of the stats will be converted to spirit.

For the first few weeks, someone of warrior class must protect such figure until the Grand Necromancer gain power or level up and having some stats point.

If not the moment anyone choses the class they surely would be an easy prey for the zombies.

Then while Azief is thinking one entry disappeared. Earth Controller disappeared.

EARTH CONTROLLER HAS BEEN CHOSEN BY RAYMOND.

The voice of the World Orb echoes in his ears.

Then another entry disappears.

BEAST KING HAS BEEN CHOSEN BY BORIS.

Then another one. Then another one.  More and more is disappearing while Azief is anxious.

He didn’t even have time to choose and one by one the entry is disappearing. Right now there is only about 233 class left.

‘Ah fuck it! I chose Shadow Lord.’

Then another notification appears.

SHADOW LORD HAS BEEN CHOSEN BY NOT YET GIVEN

‘What!’ Azief said as he looks at the notification.

His face flushed red. He is sure somewhere in the world someone is laughing at him.

After all since he could see the notification of other people choosing, won’t they also see his notification?

In USA, Raymond who just class up look at the notification chuckles.

‘What? Is that a noob? Not Yet Given! He still doesn’t name his character’ He is resting in abandoned building while classing up.

He was in New York to attend the Comic Con when the meteors fall and beast appears. He is using a mace.

He kills many of those zombies by relying on the stairs fighting it as a group with the people that follow this one man.

Raymond is following a man called Leonard. He has an arrow and support Raymond brilliantly.

So Raymond is raking on EXP right now and has already gained many items.

Leonard is the leader of the group while he is the second man. Leonard is of course has many more items then Raymond but he is injured right now, so Raymond is leading the group.

Leonard is one of the security guard at the convention. HE helped the people to run to safety when the beast first attacks.

Raymond was given the responsibilities of handling the safety of the survivors because of his strength. It was because Raymond chose to specialize his talent.

Putting all his stats into only one category, sacrificing the others. At least in the beginning. But that is enough for him to gain respect among his group.

Raymond gives all his stats to strength since the beginning.

Even if he has low stamina that is ok. He is not fighting alone. There are others. Some have blades, some have guns.

Raymond is looking at the notification while chuckling.

Anyone playing a game usually knows that when you play any game the first thing to do is name your character.

Raymond got 5 starter stats for naming himself as Raymond. Even giving name give his stats. It is the reward from the World Orb.

But Raymond also found this Not Yet Given person is powerful even though he laughs at him.

Why?

Because even without the starter pack he got to class up and not just normal class up but Unique Class Up that means he is not a normal man.

In another part of the world, the road is painted white and red. The snow keeps falling, and the blood seeped under the snow.

Boris and Katarina in Rusia have also just class up. They look at the name that is just floating in the announcement in their well protected bunker.

Boris and Katarina father work for the FSB and their grandfather too.

Their grandfather and father prepare the bunker for the imminent nuclear threat during the Cold War.

Paranoid old fuck. But at least it has its uses. It’s not nuclear war but it’s good enough.

The moment Boris get level up when he killed a Snow Wolf, he immediately killed his father.

His face when he was stabbed repeatedly by Boris still remains as fond memories in Boris mind.

For all that his father has done to him and Katarina, Boris wanted to torture that decrepit old man.

But time does not allow for such things. He killed his father and left his body in the cold street, letting his father body rot.

At least if his father turns to zombie, he can kill him again and gain experience.

If not for his power isn’t sufficient for killing the beast near the city he would have brought his sister to Moscow.

The Army remnants has begun calling for survivors to join the New Army of Rusia headed by Ranko.

It was led by Ranko one of the high level operatives for the KGB who survives the fall. Ranko quickly uses his subordinates to try to maintain control in Moscow.

There are some other ways to contact those in power. Moscow has fallen…..but not for long.

The New Army is trying to regain it back.

Electricity is down but certain transmission has other way. Boris who picked up some of his father training clearly recognizes the transmission and heard the announcement.

Killing the zombie, both Boris and Katarina has class up and now he is reading the announcement by the World Orb.

Boris just snorted while Katarina is chuckling, looking at the name Not Yet Given.

In Germany, Karl is just tending to his wound after killing a few stiffs. He was terrorizing some of the people who are in debt with his boss.

Karl is a low level thug in a crime organization. He was doing his usual job, threatening and blackmailing people when the fall happens.

He is holding his Barbed Stick, a sturdy iron bat and he just level to level 12 and has just found a safe zone.

He sees the name Not Yet Given and then realized he has the same name. It struck him.

Karl never plays any games but even he knows some games rules.

‘Name his character or I will make the same mistake like this idiot’ he said to himself.

At that moment Azief doesn’t know, but people who is classing Up in the Unique class sections is holding their laughter reading the announcement.

Azief on the other hand is embarrassed right now, his face is flushed red.

He finally understands why his status shows his name as Not Yet Given.

He still doesn’t name his character. If this is a game then this also follows the rule of the game.

Name your character.

Then as he is still reeling from the embarrassment, a light shone down and an item appear on his hand.

SHADOW LORD SET IS REWARDED

He then examines it one by one.

Azief put them all down and look at these items. And he realizes something? Is Shadow Lord…..Assassin Creed?

Then he equipped all of them. He was about to check his new status but then it appears again.

The voice of the world Orb speaks again.

THE ITEMS OF THE SHADOW LORD HAS SPECIAL PROPERTIES.

IT COULD ABSORB THE SOULS OF BEAST, MUTATED SAPIENS AND HUMANS, STRENGTHENING ITS PROPERTIES.

Then the images floated inside his mind.

‘It’s that damn alien.’ Azief cursed in his heart.

Azief reading this wanted to cough up blood

‘What the hell?’ Just when things are looking up! Now he has no choice but to fight that alien.

Damn you world Orb! he said in his heart.
