Plains of Despair

“That person is strange. Why is he jumping around like that?”

“It looks like he’s insane.”

“Come on, let’s go.”

This figure was avoided and feared by the people of Somren Liberty City. That was because he looked like the sort of person who would cause you trouble if you got close to him.

He was actually Weed. Weed was jumping up and down in fury.

“Aaargh!”

He even let out a scream. At his mad behavior, everyone distanced themselves from his suffering. Hence, it was lucky that this was near the temple of the Church of Freya.

If he acted like this in the middle of the street, someone would have taken a video and it would have ended up, inevitably, on a website.

“Uwaaah!” At the end, Weed even burst into tears!

‘I threw away the opportunity for a real jackpot!’

He had left the Morata region through the teleport gate and arrived at Somren Liberty City. Right at the moment he emerged from the gate, a thought flashed through his head.

‘I won’t be able to use the effects of the Bingryong statue or the Ice Beauty statue any longer. That’s a pity.’
They were sculptures that had taken him over a month to make. The Bingryong statue’s incredible size, its overwhelming majesty, and its various options as well, were really amazing.

Thanks to the options attached to the sculpture, his hunting had truly sped up by more than half as much.
‘So why the hell didn’t I bring it with me?!’

The Bingryong statue was too large to bring. However, he should have somehow brought the Ice Beauty statue with him.

If he tried to sell the Ice Beauty statue that increased the recovery speed of both health and mana, people would have lined up to buy it.

As the material was ice, it would melt with the passage of time, but if magic with ice preservation properties were used, the appearance of the sculpture could be maintained.

As the options attached to the sculpture could be stacked with the effects from bracelets or rings, even the effects from other items could be stacked.

Nobody would be able to guess how much money he could have received if that Ice Beauty statue had been sold.

‘Sob... It’s because I’m too much of a nice, naive, and kind person that such a tragedy had to occur.’

Though he continued to regret it while jumping up and down in fury, it was already too late.

A nice and pleasant person. Weed saw that as being no different to a fool.

Someone who was shamelessly devious, despicable, and dishonorable, but rich. Wouldn’t this kind of life be what you should truly aim for?

‘It’s not too late. From now on, you have to be tougher, Weed. Though it’s unfair that we had to become a sculptor, if we ignore all the advantages of being a sculptor, we won’t survive.’

Weed reaffirmed his life’s goal.

He had returned to the church of Freya together with Alveron and all the priests, who up until now had been watching Weed’s crazy behavior.

Some were frowning and others had frightened expressions. Like this, weren’t they even slowly edging away? So, even the NPCs were avoiding Weed.

“Ahem.”

Weed straightened his clothes and returned to his usual appearance of an adventurer out to punish evil and on a righteous mission.

“Then let’s go and meet the High Priest.”

Right afterwards, Weed headed to the High Priest along with the other priests. The High Priest had been waiting for his visit.

This time he didn’t need to make an offering like he had last time, and he was able to meet the High Priest directly. Weed was pleased by this slight effect.

Though the money he had been earning increased, if he didn’t manage the money that he spent, he would never become a wealthy person. Weed carried in his arms a crown embedded with white jewels.

“Here is Fargo’s crown that I have found and retrieved.”

“Ooh! I am truly grateful. Returning both Helian’s goblet and Fargo’s crown to us like this, you are our church’s savior.”

The quest to recover Fargo’s crown was complete.
The last relic lost by the church of Freya, Fargo’s crown, had been with the vampires of the Morata region...
The True-blood Vampire clan, led by the Vampire Lord Torido.
While waiting for the return of the Immortal Legion led by the Dark Mage Barkhan Demoph, they had arrived in the Morata Region and taken control.
For Barkhan, who tainted the continent with his evil, the elimination of the True Blood Vampire clan would be a painful blow.
As Fargo’s crown was a symbol of divine authority and majesty, it was an item that had to be retrieved for the church’s prestige.
- Your fame has risen by 1,200.
- Your friendship with the Church of Freya has reached 31.
- The Church of Freya’s publicity has increased by 2,200. The church’s publicity can be checked in the religion status window.
- The Church of Freya’s publicity: 4,612
- The publicity of religious organizations increases by combating evil or completing relevant quests.
- Your level has risen.
- Your level has risen.
- Your level has risen.
- Your level has risen.
- Your level has risen......

As compensation for resolving a B-class difficulty quest, his level rose 9 times.

‘This is pretty good service.’

At Weed’s current level, to raise his levels all in one go like this by defeating a monster would be difficult.
However, to find Fargo’s Crown he had to go through months of hardship, so this result hadn’t been easy to obtain.

The High Priest then gave him 30 potions filled with white and red liquids.

“This is the gift that our church is bestowing upon you. It is holy water and the finest health regeneration potions.”

“Why all of this...”

“Though it’s not much, please accept it. They could be helpful if you use them in an emergency.”

“Thank you very much.”

Weed tucked away the potions. As the price of potions was too expensive, up until now Weed had never purchased them.

If you weren’t someone working as a pirate or a bandit like the Dwichigi quartet, it was fairly difficult to make use of potions.

It was because if your level rose and your health and vitality increased, you would need to purchase a more expensive potion of greater performance to match the increase.

So, there were only a few people who hunted while using potions. But if you did have potions with you, they could truly become a great help during emergency situations. For that reason, everyone packed a few potions on them.

“Also, here is the equipment awarded to heroes.”

Including Agatha’s sword, Weed received once more the same set of the items that he had been given for rescuing Helian’s goblet.

‘These must be the prizes given when lost relics are returned. This will make me some money.’

“Also, this is an item that was in our church’s treasure vault. As there was no one who could use it, it had only been gathering dust. Fortunately, as your profession is a sculptor, it would be good if you take this.”

-You have found an unknown leather belt.

When you acquire an unknown item, the first task that had to be done was item identification.

Regardless of whether the item is cursed or already owned by someone, if the performance is poor, the item wouldn’t be useful in any way.

“Identify.”

Deykram’s red Wyvern leather belt:
Durability: 60/60.
Defense: 22.
Born from the free sky, this belt is made of Wyvern’s leather. Red Wyverns are creatures so extremely rare that their very existence is doubted.
Wearing a belt made of red wyvern’s leather will make you the subject of adventurers’ attentions.
It’s stretchy, so it doesn’t tear easily and fits well. Though its heavy, it can be threaded through trousers and worn tightly around the waist, and it seems able to hold sculpting tools.
The sculpting master Deykram has carved directly into the central section of the belt an engraving of a Wyvern head.
Restrictions: Level 150
Limited to the Sculptor Profession
Options:
    Charisma +15.

    Strength +10.

    Agility +30.

    Sculpting Skill +7%.
Making sculptures while wearing the belt allows you to acquire an additional 5 fame.

Weed was silent for a moment.

He had expected to receive a special item from resolving a B-grade difficulty quest but he had received Deykram’s belt.

Obviously, the item’s performance wasn’t that good. For an item of this type that raised defense and stats, it wasn’t as if you couldn’t find any others.

However, it was none other than Deykram’s belt. One of the 5 sculpting masters who had ever lived on the continent, Deykram! His belt had now fallen into Weed’s hands.

‘I’ve just earned 900 thousand Won.’

Deykram’s equipment set.

His helmet and sculpting tools had once appeared on an auction site. Their options that improved sculpting skills were useless to regular people.

As the sculpting profession was already becoming extinct, it normally wouldn’t have been traded, but the helmet had sold for 800,000 Won, and the sculpting tools had sold for 1,100,000 Won.

They had been bought by people who collected rare items.

The items he had found and returned to the High Priest, first Helian’s goblet and even Fargo’s crown, were truly rare beyond imagination.

“We, the church, want to show our gratitude that we owe a lifetime of heartfelt thanks to you, hero. Wherever you are, you have the goddess Freya’s blessing. If you are injured or cursed, come and find us at any time. We will treat you free of charge. Also, I will act to make this church’s teleportation gates available to you at any time.”

“Thank you very much.”

The High Priest let out a great sigh. His demeanor seemed as if he was seriously troubled.

“The church’s three relics have finally returned. With the recovery of our full authority, might, and divine power, our paladins and priests will now be able to exert their full, original strength. The Immortal Legion led by Barkhan Demoph is crouching down in the barren northern plains and increasing their forces, but according to the last message sent by the paladins who went to reconnoitre, they have no need for the monsters they have recruited because they are already so powerful.”

The Immortal Legion led by Barkhan Demoph was frightening because each one of them was a named undead.

Those who died in battle and weren’t buried by the enemy were revived as followers. There were paladins who displayed dark magical powers, and priests who used the blessings of demons.

Whenever the Immortal Legion fought, their forces increased.

“Tidings have been heard that Barkhan Demoph has resurrected, and at the same time, hastened movements from the demon worshiping necromancers have been observed. These necromancers, who research magic with fresh blood and in hatred, can be said to be seeds of evil. I have been told that they are preparing something in the Plains of Despair.”

    Ding!

The exiles living in the Plains of Despair.
The necromancers led by Barkhan Demoph believe in the demon Beelzebub.
It is unknown as to why the necromancers, who obstinately research the principles of mana, built a temple for the worship of Beelzebub.
Dark elves and those exiles who were cast out from each kingdom during the age of chaos live in the Plains of Despair.
Some of the necromancers who were with the temple have left for the Plains of Despair. Find and eliminate them. If you go to the temple of Rosenheim kingdom, you can obtain information on them and support troops.
Difficulty: B
Rewards: Unknown
Quest Restrictions:
Failure will lower the Church of Freya’s publicity to 0.
Fame -3,000.

Weed felt as if he would let out a sigh. It was B-grade difficulty this time as well.

‘Still, isn’t it a good thing that there’s no time limit?’

The Plains of Despair was an area a long way to the northeast of Rosenheim kingdom. Located on the border between Bertran Kingdom and Rosenheim Kingdom, it was an area where dangerous monsters spawned like crazy.

However, this was only the start of the Plains of Despair.

On a map that had been found at somewhere and at some time that had been called ‘Map of the Versailles Continent’, the Plains of Despair was drawn much larger than even Aidern Kingdom, the continent’s greatest power.

“Those necromancers who oppose divine providence will be eliminated.”

- You have received a quest.

“Thank you, Hero!”

The high priest’s face was filled with a great happiness. Once the story had finished, the High Priest would no longer respond to Weed. Weed slowly exited the church.

After training in the nearby villages, Mapan was in the middle of returning to Somren Liberty City. In his ear, he heard the voice of someone he hadn’t been able to reach for a long time.

- Mr. Mapan.
- Yes? Oh, Mr. Weed! I knew you would definitely die. Where are you now?
- The work went well. Come to the front of the church of Freya.
- Yes, I’ll run over now.

Mapan really ran like the wind. So quickly that it didn’t even take him 10 minutes. It was the return of Weed who had left after receiving a B-grade difficulty quest!

He arrived at the place after leaving straight from the market without even packing his goods. Mapan was also accompanied by a beautiful woman.

Of course, Mapan wanted to ask about Weed’s activities, but thinking that it wouldn’t be polite, he first introduced his colleagues.

“Here is Mr. Weed. And here is Miss. Hwa Ryeong.”

“Nice to meet you. I am called Weed.”

“Good day. I have heard a lot about you.”

During the time that Mapan had met her and they had traveled together, her class had been a great help.

“Mr. Weed, don’t be alarmed, but the occupation of Miss. Hwa Ryeong here is that of a dancer.”

“Dancer?”

Hwa Ryeong spoke with a cheerful laugh.

“You can look at it as a class along the same lines as a bard. With dancing instead of music, we can buff the abilities of our allies and take on our enemies.”

“So, it’s like that. It must be hard on you.”

“Not at all! It’s so fun. I enjoy dancing as well.”

Hwa Ryeong’s specialty was in confusing enemies. When she began to dance, monsters lost their fighting spirit and fell into a daze. You could even look at it as one of the hidden classes.

She could even confuse monsters much stronger that her own level of 175, but in such cases the mana consumption increased.

It was the same when she attempted to confuse a large amount of monsters in one go. Also, if she attacked them while dancing, the monsters would snap out of it.

She could only wield a single stiletto in one hand, and her attack and defense were on the meager side, so it was impossible for her to hunt alone. It had its strong points, but on the other hand, the class also had serious disadvantages.

In any case, until now, whenever monsters had been encountered, Hwa Ryeong had confused them while Mapan drove their wagon as they quickly made their escape.

‘A sculptor, a merchant, and a dancer... This just gets better and better.’

A legend was passed down through Royal Road! It was about those with production classes and the other unusual classes.

The classes that people shunned!

By sticking together and combining their strong points, they were able to maximize their individual abilities and the strongest party was born.

It was a legend of how they could catch defeat monsters, and that before the party was disbanded, it had been able to show the optimal usage of their skills.

Of course, as it was first during Royal Road’s initial phase, the origin of the legend was unknown.

‘It must just be groundless rumors.’

Most of hunting consisted mainly of using the combat system. It is easy to find a person and create a group. With these, the speed at which monsters are hunted greatly increases.

But for those who are weak and useless in combat, their presence in battle is one that needs to be taken care of. There is no particular reason for them to join. So they aren’t even invited in the first place.

“Gasp!”

Mapan suddenly took a deep breath. He then crept closer to Weed and whispered to him.

“Since I suffered through Mr. Weed’s Lion’s Roar, I truly felt that I could endure and get used to any other person’s appearance in battle.”

(Not sure how clear this is, might use tweaking of the phrasing. Basically he’s saying that after how strange Weed was in shouting at his enemies, no one else would even be able to surprise him, but he can’t keep his eyes off Hwa Ryeong’s dancing)

“And so?”

“Do you know what type of dance Mrs. Hwa Ryeong does for the monsters?”

“What is it?”

“The Bubi bubi.....” (jiggle it jiggle it)

“Gulp.”

This dancer, if she met an Orc or an Ogre, would actually approach them closely and dance the Bubi bubi! Hwa Ryeong’s cheeks were dyed with a peach color.

“I once used to frequently go to night clubs... now I like dancing so much that I can’t stop."

“....”

“Oh yeah!”

There was something that Mapan really wanted to ask.

“But just where have you returned from after the past three months? Did you succeed in the quest?”

Weed laughed merrily.

“You’ll know soon enough.”

“Huh?”

It first started in Somren Liberty City.

- You, do you know about the adventurer named Weed? This time he has completed a great deed. Fargo’s crown! The crown that was lost by the Church of Freya has now been found and returned.

- The True-blood Vampire Clan is said to be an important force of the dark mage Barkhan. The brave man named Weed, famous for his devotion and artistry, is said to have defeated them.

- You know about the famous Weed too, right?

In concert, all the NPCs in markets, coach-houses, and those staying in inns or mercenary guilds, began to tell stories about Weed. After some time, the NPCs in the United Kingdom of Briton began telling stories as well.

- Something big has turned up in Somren Liberty City, it’s said that the adventurer named Weed has completed a great request of the Church of Freya.

- The person named Weed....

- Weed has...

Then to Rosenheim Kingdom!

- Do you know of Weed who comes from our kingdom? What, you don’t know? If that’s so, listen closely.

It was not uncommon for even the NPCs from the Thor, Harpan, and Pallmore kingdoms to tell stories about Weed.

After getting out of his capsule, Lee Hyun logged onto an item auction site. He checked whenever he logged on, and today as well an e-mail from the Dark Gamer Union had arrived.

Ding!

You are invited to the Dark Gamers Union.
    To prevent information leakage, this email is only sent to a small number of selected people. For more information we would like to talk to you in person.
The Versailles Continent or in real life, whichever one is fine. Because our Dark Gamer Union can exist anywhere as long as there is darkness. With no obligations, we would like to meet and talk with you.
In this way, you’ll be able to reach an understanding of our union and what we do in the union. You can take part in conversations and if you feel the need to keep in touch with another, you could even find a good partner.

Lee Hyun ignored the e-mail and began to write an auction post.

Among the items he acquired, those items that can be sold for cash, needed to be sold immediately. Because as time passes the market prices of Royal Road would slightly decrease.

It was an inevitable consequence of the increasing supply as the number of experienced users increased. However, as demand was similarly increasing, it wasn’t a large problem to worry about.

The equipment of the vampires who had conquered the Morata area... those were still before the auction deadline. By now, their prices had reached from around a 100.000 to 400,000 Won.

“This much is good. When the highest bid has been made, it should reach the target price.”

Lee Hyun entered an open auction and then registered the items to be sold. The priorities were two of the items that he had received from the High Priest of Freya.

“Agatha’s sword or the High Priest’s ring will be able to fetch a fairly high price.”

There are market prices for common items. However, for items such as these that are difficult to obtain, the prices vary widely depending on the people who want to buy it.

If you met a person who really needed it, it could be sold for an expensive price, but if you didn’t meet that sort of person, you might not receive a reasonable price.

“It’ll be good if it sells well....”

Lee Hyun uploaded the auction post onto the site and went to sleep.
Overnight, a large fuss was raised on the auction site.

“It’s him! He’s posted something!”

“There’s no one else apart from him with a Triple Diamond rating. The ID that he’s posted with is the same as well.”

“It’s Weed! Weed really is selling an item from Royal Road.”

“This is really big news!”

When his account from the Continent of Magic was sold, Weed had already become a celebrity. Through Weed’s account, CTS Media had done several broadcasts on the Continent of Magic.

Now even among those not interested in games, there was no one who didn’t know of Weed. Lee Hyun’s ID from the item trading site.

That was something that the users definitely remembered. Until now, Weed had sold one or two items, but among those no really good items had been been sold.

Death Knights’ equipment weren’t very popular at times, and there weren’t many people who needed vampire capes, boots, and gloves. So it hadn’t received any attention.

“Agatha’s holy sword! Rose-patterned gloves! High priest’s ring! This is the Church of Freya’s. This is the equipment used by the Church of Freya’s paladins.”

The gloves that had been engraved with roses were only of the level of an uncommon item, so the market price wasn’t high.

However Agatha’s sword that was used by paladins of the Church of Freya was one of the most popular items. The equip level limit was low and the attack was high.

You could even use a sacred blessing five times a day with it, so it was a popular item preferred anyone with a class that wielded swords.

Someone had looked at list of the items Lee Hyun had uploaded, and after some research, had written this post. This post quickly spread throughout the internet.

Weed from Continent of Magic is playing Royal Road! Weed has put on an auction site Freya’s paladins equipment! At once, many people wrote posts on the auction.

- Has that Weed really become part of the Church of Freya?

- Could he have become an actual paladin?

- Throughout the entire continent, the number of people who have become paladins as part of a church still hasn’t reached a 100. To become a knight of a kingdom or a lord is easy, but it’s said that to become a paladin of a church you have to overcome an extremely difficult situation...

- It’s truly Mr. Weed. He’s impressive in Royal Road as well.

The commenters on the auction posts were talking amongst themselves. Joy and surprise could be seen in them at the fact that Weed was playing Royal Road.
Those from the Continent of Magic, and those who had heard stories of the chaotic Weed on the internet had gathered together. However several people revealed frank disappointment.

- If it’s the Weed from Continent of Magic, then for us who played the game at least, he was a legendary presence.

- That’s right. It was like there was nothing impossible for him. He would go and conquer dangerous hunting grounds. In the hunting grounds that Weed swept through, there wouldn’t be a single monster left. To us who remember his footprints...

- He was a person who was always alone and that was all he needed. For that conqueror to become a paladin of the Church of Freya is below my expectations.

- He who had solitude and an absolute strength became in some ways an object of worship. Now attention will be focused on him. Though he rose to the ultimate position in a different game, will he merely become a slightly stronger person in Royal Road?

- A year has passed since Royal Road first appeared. To be starting now is irrational. Any more of him will be boring.

- Seeing Weed’s name made me happy, but there is no need here for something like an idol.

The commenters laid out their contentious opinions. For the one known as Weed, the figure who had become the symbol of gaming, the people were divided between those who congratulated Weed for becoming a paladin of the church of Freya, and those who were disappointed that though he was a bit strong he wasn’t at his former absolute strength.
Naturally, while this was going on, attention was drawn away from the auction post. Beneath their attention, the price of the goods that Lee Hyun had put up for the auction climbed up very slowly.
In the meantime someone appeared. He urgently posted a single line of writing.

- I have just logged out from playing Royal Road.

This kind of post incited the usual strong opposition.

- Who was asking?

- No one cares about whether you logged out or not.

Within a moment these cynical commentators followed each other up. Then the person who had first uploaded the post wrote a more detailed post and posted again.

- In Versailles Continent time, about 5 hours ago, in concert the NPCs of Royal Road began telling stories relating to Weed. NPCs across the continent are shouting out the tale of his adventure in defeating the True-blood Vampire clan, who played an important role in the Magician of Darkness Barkhan Demoph’s Immortal Legions, and returning the Church of Freya’s sacred relic. I was also a user in the Continent of Magic. I heard talk that Mr. Weed had set paladin’s equipment for sale and I came here wanting to confirm this. So this was truly something done by Mr. Weed. I’m filled with admiration.

- What did you say? Barkhan’s Immortal Legion?

- Isn’t that said to be one of Royal Road’s strongest forces?

- Moreover, if it’s the True-blood vampire clan, that’s a group with individuals whose levels are over 270. Their leader Lord Torido is over Level 400...

- I’m speechless! I just can’t believe this.

The people were distrustful and tried to ignore the post. It was a self evident truth that the difficulty of a quest to return the Church of Freya’s sacred relic and eradicate the True-blood Vampire clan would be high.

To say that one person had solved this quest couldn’t be accepted. However the evidence was too obvious.

The equipment used by the paladins of the Church of Freya and the High Priest’s ring!

Especially the High Priest’s ring, as from what had been said about it, it was known that only someone who had provided a very large service for the church would have been given it.

Even if you had become a paladin, it wasn’t an item that you would just receive. In addition, there was another piece of evidence that could not be denied.

The vampires’ items that had been put up for sale by Lee Hyun last time. The vampire’s mantle and boots that were still up for auction did not leave any more room for doubt.
Lee Hyun slept for 4 hours and opened his eyes before the sun had even risen.

He quickly wore his clothes and headed to the morning market. It was in order to buy the side-dishes for breakfast and for his younger sister’s lunchbox.

Of course the school provided food, but nowadays there weren’t many people that ate that. The nutrition was poor and the origins of the ingredients could not be trusted.

Even if food poisoning occurred only rarely, wouldn’t it still be a big problem if it was caught.

‘Though it’s a critical period of youth....’

He had to prepare good food for the sake of his little sister who was working hard on her exam studies.

Even if this wasn’t the case, to prevent his sister from feeling any more sorrow from the loss of their parents, he wanted her to eat food filled with love.

While Lee Hyun roved the producer’s market he bought fresh vegetables and meat. He didn’t forget to properly cut down the prices.

Even in shops that didn’t give a good discount on their prices during the day, by greeting them early in the morning and making his face familiar, it was possible to purchase goods pretty cheaply.

As he had originally taken all responsibility for the household chores on himself, he had a certain confidence in his cooking.

However the reason that his cooking skill had now rapidly advanced was because of Royal Road.

Now he held confidence that in cooking at least he wouldn’t come second to anyone. It was of a level that he could find a job in a restaurant’s kitchen.

“Yawn! Oppa, good morning.”

“Did you wake up just now?”

When he returned from looking around the market, his sister emerged from her room rubbing her eyes.

“Go wash yourself. You’ll be late for school.”

“It’s okay. There’s still enough time.”

“Don’t act lazy. If it’s something you have to do, do it quickly.”

“Tch! It’s like every day there’s only nagging. That aside, is the preparation for the GED going well?”

Lee Hyun had made a promise with his grandmother.

The promise was that he would pass his GED, as he had not been able to graduate from high school normally. However he still hadn’t even taken a look at his books.

If there was time to study geography, he would take another look at the map of the Versailles continent. Instead of studying Korean history, he had to read the history books of the Versailles continent.

Because if you wanted to be a great adventurer you had to know background history. However he didn’t have the heart say something like that.

“Of course! I’m studying hard, so don’t worry.”

If you looked closely it wasn’t a lie, after all wasn’t studying this rather than that still studying all the same.

“Okay. I’ll trust you.”

As his sister washed, Lee Hyun prepared the breakfast. As it was becoming winter and the weather was turning chilly, he prepared a refreshing natural soup, red bean rice, and plain side-dishes.

“Thank you for the food.”

After he sent his little sister to school, a few minutes of free time became available.

“Now then, shall I see if how much the prices of the items I put up for sale have risen?”

Lee Hyun connected to the item auction site. However the number of bidders on the auction post was no fewer than 140,000 people.

“What is this....”

It was obvious 140,000 people had placed a bid, but the highest price for the items didn’t even reach 230,000 Won.

Even if Agatha’s Holy Sword was sold for next to nothing, it was still an item that would go for at least 2,000,000 Won.

“Who seriously bid 230,000 Won? And if 140,000 people took part, can this price be real?”

Lee Hyun didn’t have a clue so he clicked on the auction post.

- Mr. Weed, you are really impressive, even if it was only once a would like to wear Mr. Weed’s items! However as I don’t have any spare money I can only join in with this.

The person who had wrote this was the first to bid 500 Won on the auction. Many people who wanted to participate in an auction would start bidding from 10 Won, so the amount was meaningless.

- Congratulations on finishing the quest from the church of Freya. Please keep your spirit as a Continent of Magic user and do your best!

The second person to upload a post, raised the auction to 501 Won. After that it became a spectacle.

- Mr. Weed, good luck! 502 Won.

- Mr. Weed, you’re amazing! 503 Won.

- I respect you. Work hard. 504 Won.

- Uh, is this a new auction game? 505 Won.

- Haha! This looks like fun. I want to get involved as well. 506 Won.

- This is, this is.... 601 Won.

- Please keep to the pattern. 602 Won.

It was these people’s own way of showing their affection through fun. It was an expression of their friendliness as they slowly raised the auction price.

Thanks to the participation of many bidders in the auction, it was quickly brought to the attention of other people. Rumors spread over the internet so that people who hadn’t even heard of Weed went looking for it.

- Ah! These really the items because sold by the person rumored to be Weed.

- I have arrived for the pilgrimage.

- It’s already over 90,000 people. The auctions prices are over 120,000 Won.

- Even without the duplicate bids, over 60,000 people have become involved. Unite through the auction post!

- Hey! Who just cowardly bid 200,000 Won....

- If you don’t properly obey the order, we’ll find who did it and take revenge. Be careful. Start again from 200,001 Won.

- Let’s try to reach up to a million people!

    1. A post hidden at the bottom of the page reveals how to fix this, but some people might not know how to use it.

      Control + Shift + J will open up the Java script console

      Don't be afraid of it, copy this line of text here without any spaces before it:

      $('h1[data-mce-style]').hide();
      $('.main-wrapper').css({'width':'100%'});
      $('div[style]').css({'font-size': '17px', 'padding-bottom': '1.3em', 'line-height': '2em' });
      $('#content').css({'width':'100%'});
      $('.pagepost').css({'width':'78%'});
      $('div.sidebar').hide();


      This will change the format and page to a more reasonable format.

      Since this page and post are old, it's merely for those making the pilgrimage of LMS.

      Also, those annoying symbols can be removed via:
      (Only on Chrome)

      Right click on symbol
      Scroll to Chrome Adblocker
      Block this add
      And then hit Block it on the first level of the scroll bar, if you scroll further, it will hide things.
      If you make the mistake, simply click on the adblocker icon and undo the action.

    2. A warning from the original Anonymous~

      The Original script seems to rarely, or never work anymore. Sadly, I cannot get the original format back to how it was anymore. I won't go and note that it's no longer working for everything, this is just a note to those who pass by.

  5. At first i honestly hated the formatted style, and i still prefer the older one. But since the light novel is good and it's great that i'm even able to read it for free, it doesn't matter much. Those symbols, though, are very annoying. If you are too much bothered by them, just highlight it, right click with the mouse, inspect element and delete it.

  10. run this in your javascript console (press F12) to fix the formatting:

    $('h1[data-mce-style]').hide();
    $('.main-wrapper').css({'width':'100%'});
    $('div[style]').css({'font-size': '17px', 'padding-bottom': '1.3em', 'line-height': '2em' });
    $('#content').css({'width':'100%'});
    $('.pagepost').css({'width':'78%'});

    1. Thank you so much!! You're amazing!
      Also, I had to look up how to directly add to the javascript console on Google Chrome
      For Apple: Command + Option + J
      For Windows/Linus: ctrl + shift + J
      Then just copy and paste and press enter!

  11. oh...this one to get rid of the side bar:

    $('div.sidebar').hide();

    so the total javascript:

    $('h1[data-mce-style]').hide();
    $('.main-wrapper').css({'width':'100%'});
    $('div[style]').css({'font-size': '17px', 'padding-bottom': '1.3em', 'line-height': '2em' });
    $('#content').css({'width':'100%'});
    $('.pagepost').css({'width':'78%'});
    $('div.sidebar').hide();

  16. I guess all NPCs are deaf except for Weed's achievements.Or maybe Roal Road's server is dead and not many are playing (joke).but seriously only Weed is famous in a game with over 100million ppl?Author is too bias and the world of RR is too plain.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Adding more salt:Weed was a legend in continent of magic because of his best gear and max level and a solo playing style.He killed all the strongest monsters ALONE.
    In RR he wiped 1000 vampires ,which are one of the strongest monsters, with an army of 400 paladins and priests and he still gets credit as if he wiped the vampires solo!?
