"Hey! The system is not working! S***! I still need to finish my homework but I cannot log off! WTF!"
A random player in the streets said as he helplessly tried everything he can to use the system.
"F*** OFF NEWBIE! Don't touch my stuff!" Another player shouted.
Basically, all of the players, not only the ones in Murkwood Town was having the same problem. They cannot access the system anymore. What's worse is that all of the items in their inventory is dropped around them except for equipped or held items.
While chaos was happening all around, Jay just woke up from a wonderful dream in his sleep.
"Damn... So noisy." Just as Jay was going to stand, he received 2 notifications from the system.

[The Fate System is going offline in 3, 2, 1...]
"WAIT WHAT!? HOW?!" Jay shouted and muttered to himself...
"If I remember correctly, I was reincarnated back 10 years earlier in the game. So the updates should have only arrived year after year. But what the hell is up with the Real World Update? Wait, hold on... If I remember correctly, just before the night I got reincarnated, the game's developers revealed that they will have one final update before they move on to another project... So I guess this must be it. Oh boy... As for the rest of the updates, f*** it!"
Just as Jay was having a headache on thinking about what is happening, the information about the previous skills he learned got absorbed in his brain.
Jay then looked around the room to see if there are other changes. He saw that his Chicken Armor Set was placed under the table while Nuggets was asleep. He also found the 2 Silver Coins he has on his pocket.
"Guess I cannot leave the game anymore then. I should just eat first and maybe I can think of a plan on what I should do starting from now."
Jay then carried Nuggets and went down the first floor of the Drunken Rooster Inn for his breakfast.
"Here you go kid. Your usual order. One piece of bread with Honey Lime Juice. As for Mr. Chicken here..." Salador said as he handed over Jay and Nuggets' breakfast.
Just as Jay was going to eat, four players entered the inn and sat at a corner table. While they were conversing, Jay was eavesdropping on them to figure out what they think about the recent changes in the game.
"Damn it! I farmed all those EXP for what?! In the end, everything I worked for has been reset, I dropped a lot of my stuff at the tower, and the system is not even working! What the f*** is this!"
"Buns... Just chill man..."
When Jay heard one of them was named Buns, he almost choked on his bread. After that, he looked over at these four players. He then confirmed it was his other self together with Abyssal Angel, Hot Buns, Bloody Harvest, and Roasted Boar (his other self).
Jay felt bad about leaving them alone and not help them with the current crisis everyone was experiencing right now so he payed more attention to their conversation which lasted for around 20 minutes, mostly about them complaining and ranting.
As they stood up and was about to leave after their conversation, Jay then went over to them and gave his remaining 2 Silver Coins and told them
"Here. If you guys do not want to risk your lives in hunting monsters for materials or clear dungeons, etc. you can have these and buy yourself a small house and look for an auxiliary class to earn more money in the future."
Of course, they were surprised why a stranger suddenly offered them these 2 Silver coins. But when they looked closely at Jay, Hot Buns recognized him and started to have goosebumps all over his body.
"You again! Thanks for the offer man, but..."
Hot Buns was just about to reject Jay's offer when Roasted Boar interrupted
"Why? I do not think we owe you any favors. And we still know how to fight monsters. So why?"
Jay then replied "Then, perform one of your skills right here and tell me if you can still fight monsters based on the results."
Bloody Harvest then said "Relax kid. It's just skills. We can pull it off easily. Watch closely." he then shouted "SHADOW WALK!"
But after waiting for a while, nothing happened.
Bloody Harvest then broke out in cold sweat and said "Impossible! Hey guys! My skills do not work! How are we supposed to kill monsters now?"
Of course, since there were also other players at the inn besides Jay and his 'friends', they immediately tried using their skills. But sadly, it really did not work. None of their skills got activated.
Due to this, some cursed loudly, while some cried. As for Hot Buns, Abyssal Angel, Bloody Harvest and Roasted Boar, they dropped on their knees when they realized why Jay offered them the 2 Silver Coins.
Jay then said to them "I knew it... Follow me upstairs, I need to tell you guys something. Nuggets, come along."
At first, they were skeptical about following Jay, but they followed him anyways.
Drunken Rooster Inn 3rd Floor, Jay's Room
"Just find a spot to relax since I am going to tell you guys a long story that might or might not help you later on." Jay said as he looked at his 'other self' and his friends.
So the four of them sat down and prepared themselves with whatever Jay was going to tell them.
