We found ourselves in a large hangar similar to the one we had just left, but instead of seven podiums, there were seven massive computer screens.
“Welcome to The Game Store System, for every kill, you get GamePoints, which are used to purchase weapons, armor and enhancements separate from upgrade chambers. You have all received 50,000 Points as well as the kills you’ve already gotten. Game stores are scattered throughout all levels of the game,” announced a robotic voice.
“Awesome!” I exclaimed. My total balance put me just short of 125,000 points. “Hey Stora, do you think you could get us a new set of wheels? I asked.
“Of course, do you think 100,000 points is gonna be enough?” She replied
“Oh, it doesn’t have to be fancy, just something that has room for all of us.” I suggested.
After that I went over to my screen and started to browse the available weaponry. I was looking for something with a bit more penetration, if we had to fight something armoured, my crossbow would be useless. I didn’t find anything that pleased me, so I decided to look at armor. There I found the Reflective armor, some of the best armor in the game. Designed to reflect back any projectiles, it was virtually impenetrable. But at a price of 250,000 points it was also just a dream. Finding nothing else I decided to go check out upgrades. There, I found a few things that I thought were worth it. I got a repeater attachment for my crossbow, letting my use it more like a machine gun, and upgraded my standard ammunition to diamond tipped bolts. That should give me the penetration I wanted. In the armor section, I managed to find plates of the reflective armor that I could add to my current armor, for a much cheaper price. Satisfied, I left my screen to go see what my squad had gotten.

I went to go see The Defender first. He had gone heavy on the armor! He had purchased a huge armoured suit with a white visor to protect the face. The rest was painted jet black. He also seemed to have sold his M16 and opted for a heavier machinegun. “Wow!” I exclaimed, “How much did all of this cost?”
“The suit cost 200,000 Points and 50,000 for the gun, and this is the cheapest version of the set,” He replied.
“Wow! Where did you manage to get all those points?” I inquired.
“While you were lost we spent a night fending off a horde of zombies, I started with 175,000 points and got 25,000 for my M16. I took a loan for the gun.” He explained.
“You can take loans?” I inquired.
“Yeah, it’s in the “others” section, but…” The Defender began to explain, but I was gone before he finished his sentence. I rushed back to my screen and found the loan section. I considered the possibilities, but decided to wait. I took a look at the Argon armor and found what I was looking for. I added it to my upgrade sequence. That way I would gradually receive parts of it through upgrade chambers.
Happy, I went to see what Stora had managed to get us. I was pleasantly surprised with what I found. She had somehow managed to get an old military supply truck. She had already removed the tarp and added a machine gun turret to the rear. She seemed to be working on the engine of the vehicle, as there were plenty of parts surrounding it. “Hi Seth” She said, sliding out from under the vehicle. “Managed to get this baby used for 100,000 Points, and after the new engine is in she’ll run like new,”
“Great job!” I replied. “What do we have as far as firepower goes?”
“Well, turrets like the one you see there are cheaper than I thought. I also got a front mounting turret for forward firepower. Still haven't put it on yet,” She eagerly explained.
“Great” I answered. I decided to go check on iZ next.
I found him fiddling with a massive gauntlet mounted on his good wrist. I guessed it was a flamethrower. I was right as a trail of fire leapt from it. I noticed that both wrists had very similar looking plating. “Hey, what’d you get?” I inquired.
“I got this flamethrower gauntlet thing for my good wrist and a grenade launcher for the robotic one. The grenade launcher uses slow-time grenades. I also upgraded the armor plating on my armor and arm, but when I get enough points I'm hoping to get the V12.” He explained. Before I continue should explain that the V12 armor is the heaviest armor in The Game offering the best protection from all weapons.
“Really? Isn’t it like 300,000 credits?” I asked, surprised.
“Yeah, I’ll get there eventually. I still have 50,000 credits,” He replied.
“Cool, well good luck with that,” I said. Next I went to check on Avril.
When I got to her screen, I didn’t see her. That is, before she suddenly appeared right in front of me. She was wearing some strange looking armor. “You like it?” She asked.
“Yeah, but what is it?” I inquired.
“What do you think it is? It’s clearly a cloaking suit!” She annoyingly replied.
“Awesome, but it looks expensive. That all you get?” I questioned.
“That, and this,” She said as she pulled a long, high quality dagger from her belt. She disappeared again after that, so I went looking for Irin.
I found her toying with a very large sniper rifle. “Hi Seth!” She exclaimed.
“Hey, that’s a nice gun you got there,” I said.
“Thanks, it’s all I had enough to get but now I can contribute to long range battles.” Irin explained.
“Yeah, that’s great! Have you ever used one before?”I asked.
“No, but it can’t be that hard” Irin replied.
“I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.” I answered, deciding to go find Rika.
When I got to her screen, I found a cat sitting there before it morphed into Rika. “Hi Seth!” She said. She was wearing some sort of glowing necklace. “It’s a shape shifting pendant, before you ask, it lets me turn into any creature, I’ve encountered before.”
I wasn’t exactly sure how that would be useful in battle, but I said “Great” anyways.
Happy with my squad’s purchases, I went back to Stora and helped her work on our transport. After another half hour of work, it was done. When everyone was in Stora’s area, the room lit up and the hangar door opened. We all got in the transport and set of.

We found ourselves driving through a dense jungle. We were surrounded by massive trees which blocked out most of the light. The air was so humid that after a few moments, my helmet had fogged up. The hum of several cicadas was constantly in the air, giving an eerie feel to the jungle. The Defender had bought a radio and set it down on the ground. The music did nothing to lighten the mood. After another few hours of driving we stopped to set up camp. “Hey, Avril could you scout the area around us?” I inquired.
“I thought you’d never ask,” she replied as she hopped off the truck and vanished into the undergrowth. While she was gone we set up a watch schedule and got a fire going. Within the hour Avril had returned. “Not much around us found a few dead wolves, looked like they had been torn apart by something,” She explained.
“My guess is that the zombies got them,” Suggested Rika.
“Yeah, keep an eye open on watch then,” I said. It was getting dark so everyone decided to go to bed. We did not sleep long. I guessed that about an hour after nightfall they came; hordes and hordes of zombies. I had been on watch when it all started they poured out of the trees and took me by surprise. Luckily the truck wasn’t far and I managed to get to the turret before they did any real damage. I yelled out to my squad for them to wake up. And within moments the defender was beside me, protecting us with his shield while mowing through zombies. I saw a group of zombies moving really slowly and guessed iZ was up. He soon joined us at the truck Irin had also sliced her way through and was setting up her sniper rifle. Avril was also on doing her part, several corpses lay at behind the throng of undead. Pulling out my repeater crossbow I set out to find Rika and Stora who had still not made it to the truck. I found them surrounded by zombies using my zweihander I cut my way through and beaconed for them to come. We slowly fought our way back to the truck. Once there Stora started it and fought our way out of the clearing we had chosen as a campsite. Rika managed to summon a pile of rocks to slow the zombies. We eventually reached a series of large white buildings. “Welcome to the training center,” Said the robotic voice.
“It’s about time,” Said The Defender. A large door opened and Stora drove the truck into the building. The building had the same layout as all the others except that there was a large computer screen in one corner. I assumed it was a Game Store. We all unloaded our things and then almost everyone rushed to the screen. I knew there would be a long wait so I checked out the sim room. More scenarios and monsters had been added, but I decided to save those for a group exercise. I started up a stealth mission hoping to practice with my hand crossbows. I ran the sim quite quickly, using tranq darts and a throwing knife to clear my way through the mission. Once I was done the screen was free so I decided to take a look. The battle in the clearing had given me 75,000 points leaving me with 100,000 points in total. I looked through the weapons section and found a rather interesting sidearm. It was a gauntlet, similar to the ones iZ had, but this one launched arcs of lightning at its target. The price was 100,000 points, and I couldn’t resist it. After I purchased it the screen asked what armor affiliation I wanted. I scrolled down and found reflective armor plating. Luckily it was included because I was flat out of money. The gauntlet appeared and I put it on. Then I went to get some much needed sleep.

The next day everyone spent the morning practicing individual scenarios, while the afternoon was spent honing our skills as a team. As far as upgrades went, The Defender had paid off his debt and Avril had purchased a power upgrade for her suit allowing her to stay cloaked longer. At the end of the day we were all tired and decided to get a move on the next morning.
Chapter 7
Meanwhile, in another yet very similar training center, another hunter squad was gathered around a table. On the table was the corpse of a girl, with a massive hole through her chest, as well as several other minor injuries. A shadowy figure moved around the table drawing symbols and making preparations for the ceremony to come. At last it was done, and the man began an incantation. After a good ten minutes of complicated syllables the corpse stood up with a groan and maniacal laughter could be heard throughout the building. At last the man spoke: “Now go forth my minion and rally the undead of this place to our cause!” The ritual complete, the man fell to the ground in exhaustion.
≡≡¥≡≡
After everyone had packed up, we all loaded in the truck and got going. It was a long, uneventful morning, but all of that was about to change. The truck came to a sudden halt after almost crashing into a large pile of boulders blocking the path ahead. We could have simply used the truck to blow the up, but the noise would have attracted… Unwanted attention.
≡≡¥≡≡
On a hill almost a mile ahead of the boulders, the man in the suit smiled. He issued a series of short commands through his headset, and a large sniper rifle appeared. It was a similar model to the one Irin had purchased, except that it did a lot more damage. His preparations complete, all that was left to do was wait for the right moment.
≡≡¥≡≡
I decided to use some of the various equipment I had purchased the other day to move the rocks out of the way. I had bought some “silent charges”, basically completely silent explosives. Everyone retreated to the truck but me, the detonator only had a certain range. I raised my arm and began to count down from three. I never made it that far. All that I remember from that point on is the pain.

A lot happened after I was shot that day. First, a zombie rushed towards me with almost superhuman speed, before falling lifeless to the ground before me. Then, I could feel something stir quite close to me. “What the bloody ‘ell is going on?” Said a deep voice inside my head. It is at this point that I should probably explain another side effect of reflective armor. It has, soul catching abilities, so to say.
≡≡¥≡≡
Believing the shot to be a kill, the sniper smiled, turned and left to find transport.
≡≡¥≡≡
At first, the shot confused the rest of the hunter squad, but after they saw Seth go down, total chaos ensued. Stora passed out, Rika screamed and Avril burst into tears. The Defender practically flew to Seth’s side, and had created a bubble shield around them, just to be safe. The wound was bad, but could have been much, much worse. Had Seth not had his arm up when he was shot, he would have been dead. The bullet had passed through his arm, leaving only bone all the way up to the elbow. The bullet had then continued its path of destruction, passing through the chest plate. However, upon close inspection, the armor had stopped the bullet. A shiny gold glint could be seen through the centimetre deep hole in the armor. By the time The Defender had finished examining the wound, Rika had arrived. She began to dress the wound when now skeletal arm shot out and began to strangle her. The Defender quickly pulled Rika from its clutches. They both stared confusedly at the arm, knowing that Seth was unconscious. “Rika just stem the bleeding we’ll deal with the rest later” Ordered The Defender. After the wound was sealed, The Defender cautiously switched Seth’s lighting gauntlet to the injured wrist. “I don’t think the bullet went through his chest, so it shouldn’t be fatal,” said Rika.
