The Great Apocalypse: Rise of the 4 Horsemen by Rai

Original
After their 21 years life of ease and peace, they suddenly find out that they are engaged to some troublesome beings and that they are successors to some position. At that very moment, their lives took a 360 degrees turn. They were forced to train in RL and in VR so they could get some combat experience. Things were beginning to go smoothly when weird things started happening. Looks like the position that they're succeeding isn't some ordinary position they think it is, and it also looks like that these beings they're engaged to aren't who they think they really are. With how things are going and how the VR world connects dangerous people, Virtual Reality might just be another game to die for.

Time of Report: XX/XX/XXXX @ XXXX hrs.

Unicorn Corporation normally has a spotless reputation within the VR gaming industry, with all manners of bugs and glitches within their only release, Royal Road, being handled by their AI. What is interesting is the way the AI does it - rather than eliminating the glitch from the systems entirely, it does its best to assimilate it into the game. This is where the word, ‘Magic', comes in handy - you'll be amazed at how it becomes a valid reason in a world where Magic is a major aspect.

NPCs suddenly becoming self-aware? Those NPCs are conveniently deemed as heretics by the churches for spouting off blasphemy of the highest order (SHE'S DEMON POSSESSED!!), and burnt at the stake (or on certain occasions, the AI takes pity on them - where else do you think the AIs manning the character creation area come from?).

A game-breaking exploit, in which castles are taken by flinging people into the castles with a catapult... Where they get off with nothing but fall damage and the term, ‘Defense', suddenly becomes negligible?? Magic.

Landscape suddenly breaking up? Magic.

Landscape looks like it came out from a ye-ole-day 56-BIT game? Magic - Dimensional Magic.

In a sense, while the game looks amazingly realistic, you'll be pleased to know, dear critics, that the game, Royal Road, is actually one of the most bug-infested games you'll ever play... and it's a VR game to boot, which adds on to the dangers...

- Adapted from ‘The Royal Tattler', written by a certain Kina-san.
