The Kiorzai Warrior

Cain Corvin started the game the same way all the other players did, as a blank canvas, with no identity whatsoever. A tiny caterpillar that called himself "Helper", was the one to give Cain a brief tutorial and a chance to customize his name, appearance, and stats.

Once that was through, Cain was selected to learn one of the six forms of martial arts required to master if he were to make it through the game. It was to be either Kiorzai, the offensive style, Deu-thon, the defensive style, Ikora, the aerial style, Okora, the ground style, Skotao, the speed style, or Quinchov, the sneaky style. Consequently, Cain's chosen stats matched him with Kiorzai.

But the fighter had no idea why he had to learn this. He didn't know what he was fighting for, and it was only when he was dropped into the actual game itself did the objective become clear. Beat all nine stages and their bosses, then take on Zogar, the mysterious final boss, to earn this so-called treasure that all the players were after. Apparently, no one has seen Zogar before. In fact, only one player has ever made it to stage nine, and most players usually lose all their lives by stage three.

It became clear that this game would be brutal for Cain if he couldn't fight. He desperately needed a teacher.

Luckily for him, Cain discovered an unusual NPC who happened to be a Kiorzai master. The fighter believed he found his key at quickly levelling up and brawling through the stages. Cain ached for that treasure, and this Kiorzai warrior was willing to punch through as many hostile NPCs as he could to get it.


This was song was extra challenging to arrange and produce. I've never had to work with 39 tracks all at once before! I think it turned out well though! Hope y'all enjoy!
