" ...Reality and Virtual Reality...the difference between these two seems like both Day and Night respectively but at the very same time, there is also the line where the two become connected with one another... " - Professor Kizuna, Tokyo University Graduate, Founder and Director of Video Game Company "Kokoro and Kizuna", his opening speech and tagline on the unveiling of the Company's latest Online Video Game "Hearts and Bonds", the year 2018, the month March, the day the 17th. Professor Kizuna at age 38 is accomplished for creating many types of Video Games of all kinds of genres but none more so then the Online JRPG kind, he is especially herald, as what he is called by the public, as "The Mirror King", for unlike anyone else up to now currently so far, he has created a perfect Virtual Reality simulation of a Online Video Game world, in other words: the graphics, the textures, they all seem so real life like that you can hardly distinguish the differences between the two, he has outclassed rival companies like both Nintendo and Monolith Soft for examples all on his very own and with his latest Online JRPG, Hearts and Bonds, he has clearly out exceeded himself, however...the latest rumours report on world wide TV news that for some very strange, very mysterious and especially very shocking reasons...he was found dead in his one man apartment, having committed suicide apparently with a bloody knife found next to his chest, his entire body laying dead on the floor, despite the death of the world renowned successful Video Game Designer, his Company nevertheless proceeded to unveil Hearts and Bonds to the public, in honour of his memory and also wanting his very last achievement to have been played and have been remembered, knowing that it was he that created all of this wonderful Virtual Online world to begin with... The premise behind Hearts and Bonds is that it is set in a magical fairy tale world called "Wonderland", named after the children's book Alice in Wonderland and in Wonderland, the world stretches, as far, as the eye can see it, the skies, the oceans, you name it, it all looked so vast and especially beautiful in detail, it is said that before Professor Kizuna died, he created Hearts and Bonds with the intent of making it his very last Video Game ever and that he named it his masterpiece above all others, he dedicated the premise of Hearts and Bonds to both himself and especially his deceased late wife Kokoro who was an avid fan of Alice in Wonderland when she was a child, they even had a Alice in Wonderland themed wedding, the name of Kizuna's Company, Kokoro and Kizuna, is also named after his beloved wife, the story of Hearts and Bonds is that Wonderland, as the adventurers beta testing and playing the Video Game refer to it is actually called "Mythologica" and it is said to be the home of all kinds of real life existing events, people, fictional works, etc, for example, the person that was once feared and known, as Jack the Ripper appears in the Video Game, as a Boss type Character whilst for another example is the Fictional Character known, as Sherlock Holmes appears, as a NPC in the Game and provides clues to solving both puzzles and riddles that appear within the Game's dungeons in order to continue progressing forwards, however, the deals for clues must be paid for in "Saga Stones", the currency used within Hearts and Bonds and depending on the amount of Saga Stones that you have, you can even use them to outright pay Sherlock for the answer, however, to make sure that the Game isn't that easy in solving so easily and completing right from the get go, to make sure to keep the Online players both entertained and busy, the answer that they pay for with Saga Stones might be a trick answer and if the trick answer is used then they could end up in a trap or face an extremely powerful boss without being at the current right level to confront it, its a double edge sword gamble, besides being used, as the in-game currency, Saga Stones are also used to increase a player's attributes or be used, as magic stones during a fight that can be used to shoot fireballs, summon lightning bolts and/or bring about tsunamis, depending on the amount of Saga Stones that you currently have in possession, all of the Saga Stones come in one of each of the seven colours of the mystical rainbow that spreads all over Mythologica's world, of which is deeply rooted into the backstory of Hearts and Bonds' lore. The actual story of Hearts and Bonds is that over a 1000 years ago, a both mighty and very powerful demon king once tried to rule the world of Mythologica but in the end was defeated by 20 heroes of light who by combining all of their powers into one had managed to seal away the demon king within the deepest, darkest, blackest abyss on the far edge corner of Mythologica known, as "Terra Dar-Ca", otherwise known, as "Dark Earth", it is here that all of the monsters within the Game manifest their appearances from, warping from the Dark Earth to the peaceful outer-lands of Mythologica and terrorize the populace whenever and wherever they can, however, to keep them from invading the peaceful towns, the 20 heroes had foreseen this and decided to use the very last of their magic to erect a barrier covering all of the towns that prevents monsters with evil hearts from entering the towns, thus thereby ensuring and keeping the safety of the citizens within the towns, fearing that the demon king might one day return, 10 of the heroes of light went on to become scholars, in hopes of learning how to regain their magic and/or hopefully pass it on to future students whilst 9 of the remaining 20 went on to become great legendary warriors who would become world renowned throughout all of Mythologica and pass on all of their different styles of fighting respectively to future students just like the scholars, as for the last hero, he went on to become both a scholar and a warrior but also a king, as well, of a both great and giant majestic empire that he would form from scratch, to keep an eye on Dark Earth, forever making sure that the minions that were still in loyal service to their sealed master weren't secretly plotting to break him out of his prison, the kingdom that would become the foundation for this said empire was forged on the very last green-lands of Mythologica, just outside the mountains leading to Dark Earth, the areas there being full of monster pits, barren wastelands and volcanoes, appropriate for the land where the demon king once ruled over and was born from, the kingdom was a giant city covered all over in green and, as such, it was called "The Emerald City, Aurachalcum" and it is ruled by its 1000 year old founder and current king named "OZ, the Emerald Cloaked Hero Emperor", OZ's human physical appearance is modeled after the Game's creator, Professor Kizuna. The Kingdom of Aurachalcum spans all over the entire world of Mythologica itself and its empire is greatly vast in numbers, spanning over at least 500,000 people, although its capital city is bordered just outside of Dark Earth grounds, it is the hub world where all players first begin and start their individual respective experiences of adventures, here, players can open up shops, sell weapons, armour, items, all that you can think of and can customize your Character to the utmost limits that you possibly want, all players start off with 100,000 Saga Stones exactly and it is up to them what it is that they want to buy, however, if they want to open up shops, they must first go to a register counter and ask for a licence permit, by gaining licence permits, you can not only run shops but also guilds, as well, in the world of Mythologica, the guilds are altogether referred to, as "The Eternal Coalition", otherwise known by its full name, as "The United Guilds of Mythologica", there are many types of guilds, there are trading guilds, treasure and bounty hunting guilds, anything that marks your preference, although there are many separate guilds, they all abide by one rule: never to seek conflict with another guild, this is how all of the guilds get along well so far, however, there have been guilds that have broken this one solid iron clad rule and they are referred to, as "Rogue Guilds", Rogue Guilds do whatever they please whenever they please wherever they please and they aren't above stooping to cheating, hacking and killing off other peoples' characters just for the sheer fun of it, at first when Hearts and Bonds first came Online, there were only a small set of Rogue Guilds but now over the time and course the popularity of Hearts and Bonds has expanded, the Rogue Guilds have amassed too much in group numbers that the Video Game Company owners of Hearts and Bonds, the Board of Directors for Kokoro and Kizuna refuse to do anything about it, instead leaving the matter up in the air until they have found a peaceful way to solve things but in all honest truth, basically, they have just quit trying to reason with Rogue Guilds and thus let them be allowed within the Game, seeing no point in trying to stop their numbers from increasing, as they increase anyways, seeing this dilemma first hand for themselves, a handful of people decided to rise up against this tyranny led by the Rogue Guilds and form "The Administrators' Board for Free Online Players", otherwise known, as "T.A.B.F.O.P" for short, T.A.B.F.O.P have christened themselves, as the official legal players' admin guild that is in charge of overseeing all activities made within Hearts and Bonds, especially actions made by Rogue Guilds, they keep the rules, laws and regulations in line for those that want to enjoy a fun and happy experience Online playing Hearts and Bonds whilst all the while keep those in check that would try and upset the peaceful balance. Before Professor Kizuna died, he said that the most important, fundamental part of playing Hearts and Bonds is learning how to coexist with one another and help each other, form parties, battle monsters, go on quests, anything to enjoy a happy, healthy experience of playing a Online Video Game, he wanted players to communicate with one another using the feelings within their hearts and the strengths of their bonds, hence the title, Hearts and Bonds, seeing faults made over so many times with other Online RPGs, Professor Kizuna brilliantly installed a sort of lock-down feature, where say like someone 10 years old wanted to create and portray a Character at least 5 years older then them and if they happened to meet a player who created the same age Character but was actually older in real life and they decided to form a romantic relationship within the Game with romantic relationships being allowed within the Game but without actually knowing one another in real life, to avoid that very deep repercussion from ever happening, having seen it in other Online Games and even Chat Forums, Professor Kizuna took this to heart, soul and mind and had worked on a very powerful code embedded within Hearts and Bonds where players can still create their own custom Characters, however, they must create a Character corresponding to their age, meaning that the Character that they create represents the actual age that they are in real life and not someone young portraying an older Character and/or vice versa, this was one issue that Professor Kizuna was deeply concerned about, as he wanted players if they do form romantic relationships Online within a Video Game to first get to know one another, as they would in real life and be aware of what consequences going on a Online Game, even just going Online the Internet at all are like, involving disastrous results, hence the code he created is deeply embedded into Hearts and Bonds' primary core programming and cannot be removed whatsoever, even if hacking was used, players had to play, as though they looked like their real selves and real ages back in real life, it was one of the safety protocols that Professor Kizuna had included to ensure Hearts and Bonds did not end up just, as any other careless and reckless Online Video Game, players that were 15 in real life had to play, as 15 year old Characters and players that were 10 years old had to play, as 10 year old Characters, this was the one solemn rule that Professor Kizuna had made sure would never ever be broken even if people possibly tried to break it, Professor Kizuna took precautions such, as this into consideration before finally completing and finishing creating the final completed version of Hearts and Bonds before his suicide. The vast world of Mythologica can be explored through cities levitating high up in the sky using Saga Stones to levitate them or create air pocket bubbles underneath the ocean to create cities where people live underwater and have had their Characters adapted to that setting so much that they can evolve to become like Mermaids for example and breathe underwater, exploring places normal Characters that players create can't even explore and collect rare items, hence why parties are formed from all sorts of species, Human, Vampire, Werewolf and other Mythological creatures, by creating say like a Minotaur Character, you can traverse volcanic landscapes and not have to worry about your HP going down so very quickly, which can happen in the case of ordinary Human Characters, parties are recommended to be formed of all types of species and not just a group made up entirely of Human based Characters, also, there are Guilds that Accept only certain species Characters like say a Guild for Vampires only and/or a Guild for Werewolves only, these Guilds are called "Mythos Guilds", named in honour of Mythologica and besides traversing dangerous terrain, you can also visit casinos, nightclubs, chapels, underground cities you name it, anything and everything can be explored within Hearts and Bonds, the Game that contains it all, as the Board of Directors at Kokoro and Kizuna call the Game. The Game was released in Japan on the year 2018, in the month of March and on the date the 17th, among the players trying out the Game for the very first time is a young 16 old teenager named The Protagonist (Temporary Name), the Protagonist decides to create a Samurai class type Character that he calls within the Game "The Protagonist/II" (Temporary Name), the Protagonist/II wields a Human sized Katana, as long, as his very own body, the Protagonist/II starts off in Hearts and Bonds in the hub world central city of the Kingdom of Aurachalcum, here, his story, begins...
