Epic By Conor Kostick
Transcript of Epic By Conor Kostick
On New Earth, violence is illegal. Epic (the MMORPG) was created for people to Jump into, like a virtual reality, and take out their aggression on fictional characters rather than doing harm to any real person. However, over the years, the purpose of the game shifted and became the determining factor for what kind of job you had, where you were able to live, and what supplies you received. Central Allocations, a small group of people in charge of all the decisions, controls everything.
The governed world in which the protagonist lives in is harsh. It is as if the beach bully is kicking sand in your in your face, and since you live right by the beach its been happening nearly everyday.
“If it's bleeding then kill it, if it's not bleeding, then make it bleed and kill it” - Conor Kostick, Epic
This quote gives the general idea of everybody's struggle who live on New Earth. It is nearly a dog eat dog environment.

The ending is like this.
Erik and his family is having a tough time and is afraid Central Allocations will require them to move to the salt mines for punishment. Erik isn't doing well in the game. And, in order to have a chance to go to University, you must accumulate wealth and status in Epic.
Erik creates a character who is female, out of frustration, instead of his usual male character. Immediately upon entering the game as Cindella, things begin to look up. Characters that are a part of the game begin talking to her and giving her things. With his new found status in Epic, Erik uses his accumulating wealth and the help of his friends to take on Central Allocations (They are up against the most dangerous players.) But, if Erik can defeat Central Allocations, he'll be able to save his family and possibly create a better life for them, his friends, and possibly even the world.
Erik is face with fighting for the safety of his family and friends from the Central Allocation. He must also keep his character from dyeing or all of his effort would be wasted along with all hope to save his family from the salt mines.
