ETV3 BROADCASTING STATION
The trainees and interns are running around on the hallways of the office bringing with them the files.
The audio director and the broadcasting directors are cooperating in editing and improvising captions and deciding air time slots.
Its hectic today in the station.
After the station announced that they got the exclusive on Aero video adventure, calls were coming in asking from advertisers, fans and players on when the station we’re going to release the video.
The forum is also getting so bogged down because of so many people logging in at the same time to ask the same thing.
And they are all asking about the hottest person in brave world right now.
Aero of the East.
The editing team is in hell right now. The Director is yelling orders asking them to be faster with the editing.
The editing director on the other hand went to argue with the CP asking that if they do not edit it properly the viewers would left them while the Director is yelling again through his phone at some other people.
It is truly a stressful day today. The office long table is filled with timetable of TV programs that need to be rescheduled.
And one of the people inside here is one of the players of Brave World so he knew how this video would surely capture viewer attention.
This video would surely be trending on many portal sites. Articles has already comes out about speculation of some of the things Aero did in the war.
Neil is one of the people in the production team, and a colleague of Sarah. He too plays Brave World as a magician.
So he of course knows about Aero and was excited than anyone because he get first viewing as part of the Editing Team.
He saw the video earlier than anyone. And it was a video of epic proportions. The war scenes had even surpasses some war movies.
With the sounds and the brutality that is present, it makes anyone blood boils.
But it is also for that reason the Editing team is butting heads with the other Directors because of the fact some parts of the war had to be censored.
The Editing team felt that if they edit too much they would take away the realism of the scene.
He was even envious of Sarah that played such a big role in the war.
And he was excited more than anyone in the station to see Aero adventure displayed on the television and the internet.
Not too far away from Neil, a woman is seen smiling as she was praised by the Director on her project of making a star.
Sarah did not make a mistake. Choosing Aero was the right decision.
“WE’RE DONE!!” shouts came from the editing room. Everybody look towards the Director and the Director nodded
“OK. Roll the ad.” The Director shouted.
The ad was a snippet of the war. It shows smoke and arrows flying with the sound of energetic music accompanying the screams and cry of battle.
Scores of uplifting music of war drums and classical instrument accompanied the short scene.
It was a good ad, showing the war in both its glory and gore
Then, after the ad, it began. The first scene starts during Aero speech. The camera pans out and shows the crowds and soldiers.
The speech was spoke and people in the broadcasting station nodded. It was edited beautifully.
It was a rousing speech. The people that watch the television while drinking beer and eating their late night snacks were also enthusiastic.
“Whoa, good speech” muttered some of the employees in the room.
Yes, it was a good speech. If it was not how could he raise so many people to volunteer for the war?
Sarah thought to himself. Aero was always an eloquent speaker and a master manipulator, adept with the ways of words.
Then the scene shifted to Aero marching to Fort Vars. Ten thousands of marching soldiers in steel armor shows a sight no longer could be seen in the modern world.
It was an awesome sight. Some employees that did not see the video yet do not understand why Aero did not try to reinforce Fort Elken.
“Why did he—“
Then the conversation Aero had with Dan explained all of it
“Oh, so that’s why” some said.
Then it showed how Aero arrived and after some time decided to get out of the Fort. The editing team add the music that adds the suspense of an impending army from Vetten.
It was a good editorial decision that did not detract from the solemnity of the scene. Then the scene shifted on how Aero prepared for a raid.
Some employees were on edge.
Even for those who already knew what’s going to happen seeing it in the screen with music and editing were different than what they just heard on the forum.
The night raid scene then started. When Aero started attacking during the night some employees were shocked.
Some screamed in excitement. The sight of Aero whirling through the ranks like a storm and killing anyone who stood in his way was seared into their mind.
The Druids calls also shows how they were an asset during the war.
They constructed earth barriers that made an effective wall that trapped Kyle troops making them no different than sitting ducks.
Aero might have not realized this during the raid, but by effectively creating the barrier, Aero has doomed many players and NPCs alike to die in such a horrible way.
Some who were not capable to escape the barrier were burned to death.
The screams were horrifying and added together with people on fire running wildly before falling to the ground did not help to calm people hearts.
But the fact that Aero just kept slicing his opponents like a killing machine is more terrifying.
There was no expression from Aero face as he slashes the enemy. The fact he was calm when killing just make it creepier.
Then the screen showed Aero hiding in the camp after leaving ten of thousand charred corpses of his enemies.
The people at home nodded as they could understand why Aero retreated. It is true that Vetten army was numerically superior and Aero was just using the night raid to lower morale and it was a shock tactic.
Then the screen showed how Aero used poisons to kill the other Vetten soldiers.
“That was cunning” said some employees
“Yeah, but what is his class?” another asked
“Warrior isn’t it?” said an employee that watches the screen
“Idiot, warriors can’t disguise themselves” said another
“An assassin then” Tim from Promotion offered.
“I’ve never seen an assassin that had that kind of destructive power. Assassins rely on accuracy and swiftness. Aero is not”
“So, what class is he?”
“How should I know?”
The editing team knows. So does the Director and the Production team. The others don’t know.
And they intend to keep it that way.
However Aero antics did not end there. Disguising himself to be another person again, he killed the support division of Kyle on their beds
It was a cruel but effective tactic.
Then he retreated.
That stunt of his got many praises from the people at the studio.
Then an ad appear again from the sponsors. Way to ruin the mood for the viewers at home who has already forgot to munch on their snacks.
But this is after all a TV station.
The crowd of people was frustrated. It was one of the high point of Aero adventure and suddenly an Ad?
Neil also believes even viewers at home are frustrated.
“Aww, what’s that?” the employee’s complained
“Ehem, that’s our sponsor” a sound from behind the room could be heard.
It was the director. The employee’s quieted. The Director doesn’t seem angry. If anything he looked happy.
Neil walked to the Director and said
“The rating is high huh?” Neil asked. Sarah who was beside the Director was smiling since she could guess.
The Director just nodded. Then after the 5 minute ad, the scene was at the Fort with Kyle and his troops sieging the Forts.
Arrows were fired.
Thousands of them clouded the sky. You could see many people that got shot by the arrows, and there are also those two archers that shoot so precise it’s like they were competing with each other.
Some becomes porcupines with arrows all over their bodies. It was truly a rain of arrows.
The magic division of Vanheim and Vetten was also not left out from the action.
Destructive Magic of every kind was hurled. Rock Bullets, Fireballs, Ice Spears, you name it, every kind of destructive magic was being used.
The nights were like fireworks if your idea of fireworks is people hurling so many magic that you could almost not differentiate which is the enemy and which is your ally.
Bodies fell and stomped over by comrade and enemies alike as the war progressed. Blood flowed on the very ground they were stepping on dyeing the green grass red and the soil moist, damp and sticky
The Vetten troops were being rained down by that kind of magic since the moment they tried to siege the tower.
At least, this would be a valuable lesson to people who want to follow Aero footsteps in war.
Aero idea of using the villagers and clearing the vicinity of the Fort of supplies was a brilliant show of tactics.
It was a guerilla tactics
The ballista were also used or at least almost used. The archers and magician always targeted it first.
It was the first of its kind. A true war in such scale in Brave World.
Everyone could not move their eyes from the screen. It was exhilarating. It was mesmerizing.
This is what adventure is all about.
There is this one scene where Kyle troops tried to climb the Fort only to be poured with oil and burned.
From the screen you could see many of Kyle troops were pale when looking at their burned friends.
However it also showed that day by day, the Fort was weakening under constant battle. It also could be detected by the archery division lackluster attack.
The editing team highlighted the days and night and speed up and edited some unnecessary scene
In the video it shows the archery division of Vanheim was slowly getting weaker and slower than the day before in initiating attack and did not shoot as ferociously as before.
This can mean only one thing. They have insufficient arrows. Then a scene of Kyle walking to the Fort gate finally came which has been made meme in the online community.
The way he arrogantly struts were made to be a hilarious meme in many sites. Kyle was trying to negotiate with Aero.
“AERO!!!” Kyle yelled.
In front of the huge gate of the Fort Kyle yelled his heart out. The scene was really beautiful. In a war a commander screaming asking for each other. Or at least that is what Neil thought.
Then the viewers could see movement in the highest place in the Fort. And he has shown himself. He was looking calm.
‘Well, if it isn’t the enemy commander. Why are you screaming like a monkey, hollering me in front of my gates?”
“You have just disrupted my evening nap you know“ Aero continued. The soldiers on top of the tower laughed as Aero fans his face.
This scene of utter disregard was what some people trying to imitate with them holding fan and said elegantly things like
“You just disturb me eating’ and many other variations of these dialogue.
The employees laughed. In such intense situation Aero could still insult the enemy commander. He yawned like he couldn’t care less.
“That was cool. He just dissed Kyle” an employee from the Promotion office said
“He was rude” said his friend
“Well, it’s not like his troops are trying to invade Kyle’s hometown. I say he has a right to be rude.” Another person that is beside them countered.
“Quiet, I need to hear what he says”
The scene continues when Kyle said his sentences
“Aero, give me your surrender. I promise none of your troops will be executed. Your safety will be guaranteed. “
Kyle was saying this earnestly at least that is what the majority of viewers thought. But since the viewers already knows the outcome of this battle they just scoffed at Kyle suggestion.
‘Oh, at least he knows negotiation”
“No, if you’re not an idiot you know that is just a ploy. If there is anything that can be learned by observation, Kyle is not a person like that. He’s stubborn. Why do you think so many troops died under his order?”
Then the studio heard Aero laugh. A mocking laugh. Aero look down on Kyle from the top of the tower and it is clear Aero look at Kyle with condescending look.
“HAHAHA.” He laughed mockingly.
‘Are you making a joke, Kyle? I have just killed so many of your troops before and now you expect me to believe you’ll spare me? I rather die than surrender to you. Everyone in this fort would. You think I don’t know what you’re thinking? Do you think I’m an idiot or something? Are you even worthy for me to speak to you? If not for I was interrupted from my evening nap, do you think I would make the mistake of talking with a nobody like you?” Aero spoke from the tower heard by all the Vetten and Vanheim troops.
The viewers all admire the valiant way he said it and the extreme disregard toward his enemies which many people now know was to incense Kyle with anger.
Everyone now understand why Kyle was easily played by Aero. Kyle failed to control his emotion. This is war and not child play. Emotions means nothing
Kyle face was captured by the camera which turns red
Kyle retorted back.
“If you do not surrender when I finally break through the fort, I will cut your head and put it in a spike. I will torture you until you beg me to kill you” Kyle yelled.
Aero then replied calmly
“The brave may fall, but they cannot yield.” Then before he walk down he smirk and said
‘And I surely would like to see you try. You couldn’t even touches the sleeves of my clothes even when I’m raiding your camp and you talk big about wanting to take my head. Surely a dog that knows only to bark. Hahaha’
“Oooh, great line”
“Yeah,” the brave may fall, but they cannot yield”, where did he get his line?”
After saying his piece Aero disappeared from the screen.
And the editing team does a terrific job in timing the time Aero went back to the Fort to serve us with another ad.
The rest of the show showed Aero tricks with the dummies, the rigged explosion in the Fort sacrificing their own troops and of course the shocking development in the Battle of Coro where Bradheim and Veranis troops joined Aero armies and slaughter the Vetten troops.
Some of the employees are sweating just looking at the battle. Some were trembling with excitement.
Even the Director was yelling “dodge that, behind you” to the screen.
And the reaction when reinforcement from Bradheim came was unexpected.
All the people in the room cheered like it’s the world cup and their favorite team has just scored a goal.
And they cheered and whistled when they saw Sarah; their own Production Director leading ten thousands of troops.
With her beauty and the stylish red armor it was a sight to behold.
Not to mention when Aero performed a formation that baited Kyle to attack the center thus rendering an opportunity for Aero to envelope Kyle troops and Aero using this opportunity to take Chris head.
Then like a lion he clawed his way on the battlefield unhindered. Killing legions of infantry troops and wading through so many troops that were all cut by Aero.
The only objective is Kyle head. By the moment Aero arrived at Kyle spot, viewers could already see that Kyle has given up.
And the lion mawed the sheep with no mercy, decapitating Kyle head. Some of the employees closed their eyes.
This is why Brave World is restricted for underage players. Because it has an element of realness in it.
Too much realism.
Blood will splutter.
Limbs can be cut and heads can be separated.
Neil even heard a story about some players that sometimes fear to fight with some monsters because of the trauma they had when they were dying in the dungeon.
The show is about to end. It was a great battle. By the end, the battlefield was flowing with blood.
The Vanheim army left a mountain of corpse in their wake.
The others Vetten soldiers surrendered. And the scene ended with Aero smiling looking at the sunset, his troop behind him, the flag of Vanheim flapping proudly.
The wind blows Aero hair and the video ended.
The editing team sure knows how to wrap it nicely.
All the people in the room are still standing watching the big screen. Even the director. Then suddenly, the Director snapped back to his old self.
“Good job editing team” he complimented
“Check the response in the internet too”
In the internet the forum was going crazy. So many posts discussing about the war and Aero strategies
-I can do better than that.-
-If you can do it, why didn’t you?-
-Haters gonna hate-
-He looks handsome. Maybe I’ll migrate to Vanheim-
-Heard Vanheim will keep attacking Vetten. What do I do?-
-You just disturb me reading, peasant! (Fanning a fan on my face)-
-HAHAHA.I’m a player at Vanheim. Come here, dude. Ditch Vetten. Sooner or later it will be under Vanheim.-
More Vetten players posted to reply the previous comment.
-No, we will fight-
Someone then asked with a smiley smirking face
-With what? Stones and sticks?-
-You have lost your troops to Vanheim. Now, be a good dog and stopped barking –
Said another person from Vanheim
The forum was full with comments like this. Some of them were praising Aero effort and congratulating him. Some were trying to undermine Aero effort.
Some were asking what to do after the big event. Aero name is beginning to be known by the players in BW and that attracts both good players and rival players.
Third chapter for this month. One more chapter until this month quota of AOA is fulfilled
