[New quest]

Quest: feel the flow of mana in the world. Reward: [Perception I] skill video.

The strange, unexpected, floating text woke Albert up from his sleep. He rubbed the beads out of his eyes, and noticed that it was still dark outside. It was two AM, his red digital clock told him. His brain slowly started to pick up speed as the vestiges of sleep were forcefully purged from his mind by the adrenaline.

His hands were basically shaking right now.

This was a System Scenario.

The unexpected happened. The impossible happened. The very same thing he, along with thousands of other nerds like him always dreamt about, happened before his very eyes. And yet, this was real and not a dream, his reality checks all but ruled out that possibility. There was a system, and it talked about mana, which meant that there was magic as well.

As far as he knew, he was the only one to whom such a thing had ever happened. Of course, there were a couple possibilities that might explain why he had never heard of magic, real magic, before. Either it was kept perfectly secret, or maybe… the system and whatever magic it talked about had just arrived on planet Earth. He was knowledgeable enough about this matter to know not to discount these possible scenarios, lest they bite him in the ass down the road.

For now, however, he felt that it was perfectly fine for him to take a little moment to appreciate the situation before throwing himself in the main character training montage.
