There is trending news on the internet in the morning. It is none other about the Brave World war between two superpower nations of the eastern power bloc.
The Brave World forums were full of post about the war of Vetten and Vanheim.
The internet broke down.
The war between Vanheim and Vetten topped the all-time searches and the people participating in the war all become public figure overnight.
At least their character in the game did become a public figure.
The name Aero was the most searched name in the engine searchers.
That was the response of the conclusion of the shocking war between Vetten and Vanheim in the real world.
In Brave World, the reaction was even more explosive.
All around Vilajeri continent the news of Aero victory over a larger army of Vetten spread like wildfire.
Even with numerical superiority against Vanheim, Vetten could not pass Aero and was utterly decimated in the Battle of Coro.
His picture of standing on top of Fort Vars fanning his face with the feather fan become viral with many people making memes out of it in 8gag or blackdit.
It is a meme of condescending attitude towards one rivals. But there is an undercurrent in the Vilajeri continent right after the victory of Vanheim.
With this victory, Vanheim had established military superiority over other states and kingdoms near them.
And King George which has always been seen as an ineffectual ruler is now akin to a tiger that is eyeing all of its neighbor.
By now, the path of peace that Vanheim have always pursued seems to be subverted
Some people could see the trend of time is changing. With Vanheim victory, they are walking on the path of conquest.
This victory also acted as a foundation for Vanheim to unify the Eastern Continent
Coincidentally, the day that Aero managed to defeat the invasion it was also the same day as Zeus victory in Veva kingdom.
Zeus victory at Veva was considered not a big deal considering every players knows that Zeus has long planned to supplant the King of Veva and have all of his people infiltrating the official circle of Veva.
So, his victory was a matter of course.
Zeus declared himself King of Veva. Aero heard about it of course. When he heard about Zeus calling himself King of Veva, he laughed.
When General Marco asked why he laughed Aero only said
"Build high walls, stock up rations, and don't be too quick to call yourself a prince"
No one in the convoy understand it but some people understand the meaning behind those words.
It was the advice of Zhu Sen to Zhu Yuanzhang the founder of Ming dynasty when he wanted to claim the Mandate of heaven
In other words, Aero thinks that Zeus should instead fortify his foundation and making sure all internal problems are settled first before claiming power.
Aero when he looks at Zeus tactics reminded him of Napoleon. Fast, decisive and lethal. He is a charismatic men. But that is not the only thing that reminded him of Napoleon.
Just like Napoleon Zeus forget the subtlety of politics. Napoleon took over most of Europe. But in the end what happens to him?
Imprisoned in an island with a full court, to be reminded of his past glory in humiliation in Elba Island.
Other than that he did not say much about Zeus since the matters of Veva is not Aero matters
All the minstrels in Brave World are singing songs about these two heroes achievements and feat.
Sagas and song are written and retold all over the Vilajeri Continent.
But one of the most famous was the poem created by a poet in Duvar. And it goes like this
Regarded as the strongest,
Zeus of the North,
Undefeated and Unchallenged,
None stand his way,
If Aero of the East does not come forth,
Who can be his match?
Aero of the East, Zeus of the North!
And so Aero became known to the people of the continent as Aero of the East and Zeus, even though they are many nicknames that he had over the course of his playing Brave World this is the most famous one.
Why did they get this kind of nickname that they themselves represented an entire part of the continent?
Because what these two players have done is unheard of. There are skirmishes sometimes between the Kingdoms since the opening of the game but a full blown war?
Especially a war that is initiated by players.
That has never happened before Aero was in the picture. Of course this is a chain reaction that started all the way back from Aero completing the quest of King George
King George return to the throne strengthen the fractured Vanheim
And by strengthening Vanheim, Aero forced Vetten hand to attack, fearing a powerful King to rise in Vanheim after George gain his full power in the court.
It could be said Aero scheme has forced the King of Vetten to quickly attack Vanheim.
Zeus on the other hand, usurped the King title, a feat no one thought possible for a player in Brave World.
The highest level of nobility a player can enjoy is Duke. At least that is what everyone thought.
But Zeus changed that.
And now both of them are quickly rising to be a legend in Brave World. They are the lions and dragons of Brave World.
Both of them have high position and have large influence in the area they resided.
The forum of Brave World is exploding with requests from fans and players to air Aero war with Vetten and Zeus usurpation of the throne.
ETV3 using this momentum with collaboration with Vega Corp and put some ads informing the fans that they will air the full video of Aero adventure.
This got the Brave World community to be in excitement and people are anticipating the release of the videos.
Not to be left out in the craze, VMS also informed that they have the video for Zeus battle. VMS and ETV3 also have their own battle to fight.
A ratings war which centered on the two great characters in Brave World.
It seems the internet is abuzz with these two names.
The effect of Zeus betraying the Veva King also inspired Leo clan that was fighting in Redat to turn back and try to take the capital to compete with Zeus.
But unlike Zeus, Leo clan is not well liked by the people of Asgaro Kingdom. So right now Leo clan is facing great resistance from the people.
The nobles in Asgaro have also banded together united under King Fjord to destroy Leo clan.
Meanwhile, in the eastern continent, Vanheim is quickly rising to become one of the most powerful nations in that continent.
Like a lion with sharpened teeth, with one roar it could force small states to submit. Just because a lion does not roar, doesn't mean it is asleep
With Vetten losing about 40 % of their military power there is no doubt that Vanheim will swallow Vetten.
Veranis on the other hand is rumored to be strengthening their military after the rumor mill said that Erdanis state will be given by Vanheim to Veranis as a gift for helping them in their dire moments.
The rumors say the military is led by King Philip son, Alexander a young, talented commander which also serve to strengthen the rumors that Alexander would inherit his father throne when he is ready.
Gerad is also strengthening their defense in preparation of a chaotic era.
So does Tian Dynasty who did not send military aid to Vanheim even though it was requested by King George personally.
It is now clear after his victory; King George is aiming to settle his enemies. Retribution is coming sooner or later.
Tian knows that Veranis now seen as a Vanheim ally through and through will point their sharp spear at his kingdom when Erdanis is given to Veranis
Niovar is also getting ready for the changing times with their kingdom strengthening their borders and began drilling their reserve forces.
Karak Federation in the North West of Vanheim is also starting deploying spies in the powerful nation of the Eastern continent.
The Central continent is also beginning to move.
In the Northern continent, Saril Kingdom is becoming wary of Veva new king. Sol Queendom on the other hand seems to not care that Zeus usurped the throne.
Vor Kingdom and Saril Kingdom formed an alliance after the news of Zeus coronation arrived at their court.
It is clearly because of Zeus recent actions.
It is not hard to see what Zeus is trying to do. He wants to rule the Northern continent before expanding his ambition to the entire continent.
It is obvious and simple objective. The Southern continent on the other hand is employing wait and see approach.
This is not their problem so it's understandable why they would not want to involve themselves in the conflict.
But just because the NPCs don't take action in the South doesn't mean that players don't. And there is a new kind of war brewing in the South
There's also the case of religious war in those regions.
The Church of Light has many followers and now they are beginning to intimidate the people that believe in the Seven Celestials.
It begun to look like a religious conflict will erupt in the South. In the times of chaos many players are forming clans these days.
Clan is usually only formed by high level players when they want to gain money or have large influence and get great quest.
Not many are successful like Aero who is very good in getting great quests from nobility, and even that is thanks to his unique class.
But after the recent development many are beginning to harbor the same ambition as Zeus.
This would later lead to the chaotic Warring Kingdoms with everyone desiring to become a warlord.
Both in the Eastern continent and the Northern continent, something is changing. The action of these two men is moving the entire Vilajeri continent to a new era.
Second chapter for today. Like always if you like the story please vote. This is the beginning of the new book The Rise of Aero.
