The two parties looked at the black and white terrain in front of them in surprise.

"What is this supposed to mean?" Leo asked.

"Not sure, maybe it's some kind of strategy game," responded Ryan as he made his way through the entrance.

However, before their doubts could develop any further, an interface appeared in front of them.

[First Floor]

[First Trial]

[Stand on Aida's light and glory is your call. Deviate to Lavador's path and divine punishment shall befall you]

"We should stand on just the white tiles. The black ones are bad." Ryan cut to the chase and explained the words of the trial perfectly. Shesmu was surprised by his quick judgement.

I guess it wasn't too difficult of a riddle, Shesmu thought. But still, good job, Ryan.

"Wait, how do you know it's the black tiles that are the bad ones?" Leo asked in confusion.

"The way it was worded makes it seem that way." This time, it was Sakura that responded. "Although, that's definitely a good question. There is nothing that confirms that the white tiles correspond to Aida, whoever she is."

Ryan scratched his chin for a second before saying, "Well, guess there is only one way to find out."

And he jumped on the white tile.

"See, nothing happened."

Ryan's temerity left both Leo and Sakura slack-jawed.

"Dammit Ryan, you really have no chill dude!"

"Wow, your friend really is the "do first, think later" type, huh," Sakura said while looking at Leo.

Leo scratched his head at Sakura's diss. "Ehh, he usually isn't this way." He then focused back on Ryan before looking at what was behind him. "Well, at least we now know for sure that the white tiles are safe. That leaves one issue… how are we supposed to deal with those guys in these conditions?"

Everyone's eyes drifted towards where Leo was staring at. Red furred wolves roamed the chessboard, while a huge monstrous wolf boss stood right in its middle.

"That's one big doggo!" Ryan exclaimed. "You think it would let me ride it?" He asked Shesmu excitedly.

Shesmu shook his head at Ryan's ridiculous question before saying, "Inspect it and you tell me."

Both Leo and Ryan followed Shesmu's direction. They looked at the Boss and used their skill on it, when Leo's face grew paler.

"Wh-What is that number?!!"

Ryuji and Sakura got curious from Leo's shout. They both used Inspect on the huge wolf and their eyes widened.

"One-One hundred thousand HP?!!" Ryuji exclaimed. "Isn't that way too strong for us?!"

Sakura gulped before responding with a calmer voice, "No, maybe it's not as insane as we make it to be. All the player parties are going to fight against the boss, so there's a chance."

"Yeah, there is always a chance." Ryan looked at the boss seriously before shrugging and breaking a smile. "It's just that we have to deal with an OP boss while making sure to stay on the white tiles."

"Ahh, that's gonna be a problem…" Leo said before joining Ryan on the white tile he was standing on. "But either way, we still have to deal with it. So let's give it our all."

"That's true." Ryan shrugged in response.

While the two were talking, Shesmu looked around the whole field. Other than the hundreds of monsters spread out over the chessboard, there were also many cave openings, just like the ones Shesmu and his friend came out of. He could see many players standing at the edge of the board, hesitating to jump in.

Since the white tile on which Ryan and Leo stood was already full, Shesmu jumped on another one before saying, "Okay everyone, let's focus now on killing all the mobs. We don't want them swarming on us while we try to take care of the boss."

"Ohh, as expected, Master! Great thinking!"

"Dammit Ryuji, stop praising his every action, will ya?"

Ryuji laughed awkwardly at Sakura's rebuttal while Ryan scratched his chin thinking.

"You know what would be a good idea? Everyone needs to join in the mob clear."
