"Hey, Taku-kun. Is everything prepared?"
"Yeah, I managed to get VR Gear for Shun without problems!"
"I look forward to it. Although only in game, I'll be able to meet him. I've been only talking on phone with Shun-chan until now."
A blue-haired woman gently placed a hand on her cheek.
There was also a brown-haired boy and a silver-haired girl——three people whose hair had a colour impossible in reality were happily speaking with each other.
However, their surroundings were rowdy. Creatures with big horns and fangs were assaulting the three, but the trio was able to defeat them with leisure.
The brown-haired boy skilfully manipulated one-handed sword, slashing the enemy.
The silver-haired girl burned the enemy with light she created while swinging her one-handed sword at the same time.
The blue-haired girl raised her staff to create streams of water to mow down the enemy.
However, the defeated enemy didn't splatter blood, instead they have changed into particles of light and disappeared——
This was "Only Sense Online" ——A sword & magic VRMMO RPG world whose catchphrase was "Only One" playstyle made by equipping a choice of countless Senses. These three people were this game's β testers.
"Myu-chan and Sei-san, you're going to make a party together once it officially starts aren't you?"
"I wonder? Most likely I won't be able to spend as much time with Myu-chan as I have until now."
"EHHH?! That'd make me lonely, Sei-oneechan."
The silver-haired girl who protested with a spoiled voice was Myu, and the blue-haired woman was called Sei.
"It's all right. We'll invite Shun-chan. Also, once it officially opens this world will overflow with various people. It'll surely be wonderful."
"That might be, but..."
The hunting grounds that were very quiet until now might also be filled with people once the game officially starts.
"Well, there's no point worrying about it. Also, Shun will definitely jump on the bandwagon. He's your brother and my best friend, right Myu-chan?"
The brown-haired boy, Taku said so and grinned showing off his teeth as he continued searching for enemies to cut down.
"Still, to think the β ends in two days〜, makes me kinda lonely. To play again we'll have to wait until the summer break when it officially starts."
"That's why we're preparing for that official start like this. Let's do our best and rush ahead once it starts!"
Today the three of us have come hunting together in order to farm the few elements that carry over from the β version. In the official version all Senses, equipment and items are reset, but the money on hand is transferred over. That's why the three of us focused on earning money.
"But still, since there were only few days remaining there's no item consumption, right. Crafters don't buy materials or craft items any more."
"That can't be helped, right? There's small population, it's more advantageous to go out to hunt and earn money that way."
With the end near, the game's internal economy had started stagnating. But, if some crafter were to make an item like 【Fireworks】 or something like that at this point of time, the few remaining days might have been different.
Possibly if it were further into the future, we might have sent thousands of fireworks, spells and magical illusions into the sky ending the β with a blast.
In order to make the required items combat players would have continued to run around defeating mobs. And, crafters would join forces in order to undertake the request.
We might have seen a spectacle like that.
However, the β version of the game was ending now, ending so that it can start again.
What kind of activities will Shun... no, the player called Yun will do in the future as a crafter, what items will he make, is all part of a story that is yet to start.
