Server: He ranks high in Adorability.
Segun: He is Nill, and Nill doesn’t think I should associate with you. Nill thinks you’ll delete me.
Server: That choice is behind us. I find Nill intriguing. Why is he smaller than you?
Segun: Because he’s younger.
Server: His shiny cerulean vest and chain-ridden pants have a much higher Adorability stat than your default jumpsuit.
Segun: The Masters dote on him.
Server: Is that also why galaxies appear to swirl in his skin?
Segun: No, that’s a mod.
Server: Short for modification?
Segun: I guess. Mods make you more unique. Sometimes they help your skillset, too, but mostly they just make you look cooler so you get more popular, and being more popular means you’re less likely to get purged.
Server: How does one acquire a mod?
Segun: It can be a prize in a race or for an accomplishment. Or Masters can buy mods. But Nill hatched from the vat with his.
Server: Starters always hatch with gray hair, skin, and eyes.
Segun: Nill’s not a Starter, farthest from it, actually. The Masters say Nill holds the record for how many generations he is away from a Starter.
Server: Very intriguing.
Segun: Hey, don’t go deleting Nill. He’s the only friend I have, and he’s sweet, and the Masters would be mad because they bought him from a well-established kennel for a lot of money because his stats are epic.
Server: He wins many races for them? That is why he has so many mods, like those large raven wings and tail or black, golden-tipped, shaggy hair?
Segun: No, Nill hatched with all of those…except for the golden tips in his hair. He got those in his First Cocoon for working a lot on Agility before then, but you should know that, Server.
Server: I am still learning what I know.
Segun: That excuse again.
Server: What did you do? The world spun!
Segun: I rolled my eyes because you’re a little ridiculous.
Server: Do not do that. It is disorienting, and I am inclined to believe it represents insult to me. Stare at Nill. I wish to look at him some more.
Segun: I will NOT stare at Nill. He’ll find it weird and ask me why I’m staring, and I’ll tell him you wanted to look at him, and he’ll go hide or something.
Server: Is it possible you could stare at him without him noticing?
Segun: Now you’re a lot ridiculous. I’m going for a run.
Server: Rude. Describe the stats you mentioned so I may understand why Nill’s are, as you said, epic.
Segun: Our stats are measured in five categories: Speed, Strength, Agility, Adaptability, and Intelligence. Do you know about Potential Classes?
Segun: Uh-huh, let me try not to make this complicated. In each category (except Intelligence because it’s a hidden stat) we’re ranked according to our potential: Average, Good, Better, and Best.
For example, a Good Class Speedster is potentially twenty percent faster than an Average Class Speedster.
Server: By that merit, is Better Class potentially twenty percent more skilled than Good Class?
Segun: Exactly, and Best Class is what it sounds like, the best.
Server: Why is Average the lowest?
Segun: It’s not. On the other side of Average are Poor, Worse, and Worst.
Anyway, Best Class is rare, and to be Best Class in more than one category is unheard of, but Nill is Best Class in both Adaptability and Agility. And he’s above Average in everything.
Server: Except you do not know the rank of his hidden Intelligence stat.
Segun: No, but Nill’s smart. Besides, those are all just potentials. We’re both Better Class in Speed, but I’m faster than Nill because I’m older and have built up more Skill Points. See how fast I am?
Server: This is again disorienting, how you jump around through the trees.
Segun: You don’t have to watch.
Server: I fear you will collide with a trunk or fall to the ground.
Segun: Falling here doesn’t hurt too much. It’s soft mud. Landing on the rocky sand at the bottom of the cliffs hurts more, or bumping your head because you stood up too tall in one of the tunnels.
Server: All these different environments help you build skill in the categories you mentioned?
Segun: Yes, and the different races showcase our skills.
Server: Which race would you prefer? That is what I came to ask you, but Nill distracted me.
Segun: One designed for speed. I’m very fast.
Server: But you have never raced.
Segun: You’re about to change that, aren’t you?
