Chapter 1: Plains of Despair
“That guy is weird. What is he doing?” “Maybe he’s crazy? He looks crazy too.” “Let’s keep walking” Residents of the city feared and avoided the man. They thought that if they approach him, something bad would happen. That man was Weed. He was throwing a tantrum. “AAAAAHHHHH!” His crazy improbable jumps and screams scared away the pedestrians. It was a good thing though that he was hidden between the two churches of Freya. If this had happened in the middle of a busy street, then it would have long been posted on YouTube. “Ouuuuuuuu!” Weed even burst into tears as he finished. “I missed my chance!” At Mora, Weed returned through the teleportation gates, and when the glow of the spatial gap left behind him, it hit him. "Now I can no longer enjoy the effects of the Ice Dragon and the Ice Beauty. GRRRR!" Weed had spent a whole month to produce two statues in the province of Mora. The Dragon sculpture was the pinnacle of his skill. An enormous, magnificent statue, no less amazing than the effects it gave. "Why didn’t I take you with me!?"
Page 2 of 159
The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung Of course, Weed was not thinking about the statue of the Ice Dragon, but of the Ice Beauty. After all, if a statue capable of increasing the recovery speed of health and mana were to sell, there would be a huge line. Furthermore, the effects of the statue operate independently, and if you use another bracelet, ring or buff, their effects would stack. True, it was made of ice and would eventually melt, but if you use a spell, you could preserve it. God knows how much he could make if it sells. "Ahhh ... I'm too good, simple and honest. Now I'm losing money because of it." Weed hit the ground, jumped and shouted in anger, but it was too late. He chose a path of a good and honest man. Weed thought that he was a fool. He would rather be cruel, and dishonest, but rich and shameless. An honest life was not worth pursuing. "It’s not too late to become a villain.” Though his discontent of being a sculptor was not completely gone, seeing the advantages, he would not give it up. Weed was set on the goal of his life again. While Weed lamented, Alveron and the priests who returned with him to the Order of Freya stood and watched his crazy shouts and jumps. With frowning and frightened faces, they slowly retreated back. Even NPCs shunned Weed. “Ahem ...” Weed tidied his clothes back in order to the image of the hero, who punishes evil deeds and administers the glory of the goddess. “Well, we should go see the High Priest” Surrounded by priests, Weed entered the church. This time, he did not have to go across the hall donations.

You just earn some money.." But the priest was not finished. People that used potions during hunting were very few. and therefore required more effective and more expensive potions. It would be bad if there was a curse or something on it..The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung “ The Order of Freya is grateful to you. These potions can help in case of an emergency. Here are the best health potions we can offer and some holy water vials. with your profession . and Weed had never used them before. the rewards for the return of relics do not change. "So. thank you . got the same things ranging from armor to the Sword of Agatha. the first thing he wanted to do was check it out.” . That is why almost every player had a few potions in case of emergency. Potions were expensive. “Also let me give you an armor.” “Oh. “Identify!” Red Wyvern Leather belt: Durability: 60/60. But the fact that they can help in an emergency was true. it should be useful to you. “This item has long gathered dust in the treasury.You have received an unknown leather belt. but I ask you to take them.a sculptor. Page 5 of 159 . At the moment. health potions in the game were usually used by bandits and murderers such as Dvichi.

The leather belt is durable. “Thank you. any sculpture made additionally gives 5 fame. When the belt is worn. Deykrama. Requirements: level 150. Effects: Charisma +15. Sculptural design + 7%.

However. And now. And his belt was now in the hands of Weed. It seems that all this time he was thinking about something. Instead. Wearing a belt is of great interest for many adventurers. as before. The thing that set him off was the name of the creator. lightweight and comfortable. If you suddenly get hurt or come under the effects of a curse at any time refer to the priests of the Order. May the blessings of the goddess be always with you. and we will provide free help. But the undead also does not sleep. one of the 5 great masters of Versailles continent. Without waiting for an answer. In the centre of the belt are remarkable wyverns figures. Now the Goddess. in recent reports a Paladin said that in the barren northern lands there is going to be a new army of the followers of Bar Khan. and now we can fight on equal terms with the forces of evil.

Mapan completed a transaction in a nearby village. Hwaryeong said: Page 8 of 159 . and he quietly left the Order. he just threw his cart in a rented place and ran to the temple. After that phrase the priest no longer reacted to the presence of Weed. In just 10 minutes he got to the temple. It was at that moment he heard a familiar voice. she had a very unusual profession. he first introduced his companion “Weed this is Hwaryeong. I heard a lot about you”.” “Hello.” “Nice to meet you. “Weed. Not alone though. During Weed’s absence Mapan found a colleague to travel with. my companion. My name is Weed. Mapan . He did not even bother to sell his goods. Weed! I really thought you were dead. he came with a beautiful girl.” “Yes? Oh.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung You took the job. which he missed. already running” Mapan ran like the wind.” “Dancer?” Giving a cute smile. but etiquette didn’t allow him to ask them. Hwaryeong is a dancer. however. you will be surprised.” “All right.. After all Weed had just returned from a rank B quest.. Mapan had thousands of questions in his head. “Hey. soldier!” the priest said happily. “Thank you. and slowly returned to the Liberty City. I am at the church of Freya. Where are you now?” “All ended well. come here.
" Monsters would usually target the biggest threat. That's why players with low combat characteristics quickly lagged behind. However. nobody knows. Hwaryeong would dance depriving their desire to fight. "Or maybe it's just a fairy tale. In return for dazzling a lot of monsters. monsters lose morale and jaws dropped frozen in a daze. they travelled together to the adjacent land. The farther into the forest. and distracts enemies. "A sculptor. I like to dance. as a teammate had to look after them.thought Weed. trader and now a dancer . it is interesting. A cohesion of artisan and other professions. “Is it difficult. She was armed with only a small knife. They could beat any monster. in a group she shone. they were mostly useless. perhaps?” “No! On the contrary. They explored each other's capabilities and thus repeatedly rise by the group. harmful.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung “Consider me as a colleague. and when monsters attacked. When she started to dance.. We can say this is one of the hidden classes in the game. so with no group to go hunting with it was very hard. and they in turn would destroy the monster. Most interesting is that she can stun enemies far greater than her level which was 175. Where it came from and how reliable it was. a few players with unpopular professions had come together in a group. it consumed a lot of mana. In the group. perform any task while they are all together. and when the dancing stopped.." . On the pages of the Royal Road website there was a legend. I dance which buffs my party. That's such a legend. the monsters quickly regained consciousness. The downside in her profession included weak attack and defense abilities. Instead of sculpting.” The main feature of a dancer was to stun the enemy. more the wood. Just one of the parables. and in fact. As a result they would be the first to increase their levels and the first to get the loot. walking from one part to another of the opening game. while Mapan quickly manage the cart and run away.

But not dance..” Weed coughed.” “That's it!” But Mapan but could not restrain himself and asked: “Well. . “Soon you will know about it.. you know what she's dancing?” “What's that?” “Korean Strip Dance” “Oh.” Mapan sighed and went to Weed and whispered in his ear: “I heard your roar of a lion is as efficient as the different techniques of different players. really?” “Yes.” “Oh. and now I cannot stop..

This was inevitable since the number of players reaching 200 went up. consequently so did an increased number of products. The mail box had only one new message: "We invite you to the dark alliance of gamers. We will try to understand each other and if we decide that we can benefit from each other.. Harpan..The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung “Did you hear about the adventurer Weed? He did a great job.. All the details are given in person in the vast continent of Versailles or in reality.all NPCs started talking about Weed.. Because in the Royal Road there was also a market economy. As our dark gamers union exists wherever there are dark places.” “A man by the name of Weed . In order to keep this information secret. " Lee Hyun ignored the letter and began to create a new ad on auction..” Then the news came to the Kingdom of Rosenheim.. Coming out of the capsule. hotels and Guilds . and the price could go down with time.” “Weed .

Imagine . the first thing Lee Hyun did was connect to the auction site and opened the mail.” “You can say that the clan of vampires had been a major force of Bar Khan! They say that Weed the Warrior.

This is interesting!” After selling his game account on the Continent of Magic Weed became a well-known figure. but the boots and gloves vampires… Page 12 of 159 . Having bought his account.

Lee Hyun set the starting price at 100. “It would be good to sell .” Lee Hyun posted an ad on the site. since there were two sets. followed. Lee Hyun tried several times to sell goods. “I think that is normal. It all depended on the number of people in need of the object. and the same nickname. of course.. Dark Knights armor were as special as a raincoat. and left.” “Weed! Weed is selling real products from Royal Road. For the armor of vampires..” He started with armor.” Ordinary objects had a predetermined market price. “This is it! More precisely. nobody else on the auction site had a triple diamond rating.000 won. There was a tense debate overnight. Players remembered him and. “I think I can sell the sword and the ring of Pontiff Agatha at a higher price. but they were never as good as this.. but on unique or rare items their pricewas not fixed.the price is high. Not cheap but neither expensive and at the same time it suits me. And with exactly the same login was Lee Hyun on an online auction site. it was not enough to raise the price. and now there was no one who was interested in games that did not know about Weed. it is!” “Well.
At once a huge number of people went to the auction. Now I am no longer interested in him.” Page 13 of 159 . but now he’s just some gray participant Order of Freya. “Come on. to be a paladin of the Order of Freya is almost impossible.. They were pleased and surprised that Weed also played Royal Road. Know that . so they weren’t worth much. we are playing with a legend. did Weed join the Order of Freya?” “Has he become a paladin?” “If you take into account the entire continent. it does not even make up a hundred people who are paladins of the Order of Freya. there was not a monster left.” “It's Weed! Even in the Royal Road he’s ahead of it. some players openly confessed their disappointment. the sword of Agatha – was a very rare and sought after item because of its buffs and high durability. “Good for Weed. Agatha's sword! Gloves with a rose pattern! Pope's ring! All of them from the Order of Freya. “Yes.. Soon it began to spread like a wind to almost all gaming sites..The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung “St.” “Exactly. In addition. He overcame even the most dangerous dungeons. For us who remember his achievements . Plus you could use its “holy blessing” five times a day. Some people looking at the sales history noticed this and began spreading the word.. However. This is just below our expectations. but I expected more. He was one of the best players in the Continent of Magic. However.” “He always walked alone but now he’s just some paladin in the Order of Freya.. “If this is the Weed from the Continent of Magic. It seemed that for him nothing is impossible.” People in the comments texted each other. The main message was that Weed from the Land of Magic Weed also played Royal Road and was selling items from the Order of Freya. And heroes are aging . Things that used by paladins” Gloves were common in the game.. Where he went. while it is not hard to get into the Knights of the Court.
“What? someone asked. the views often expressing totally opposite. a normal vampire is above level 270.. “In the Royal Road. the prices were rising. Everyone knew that to get the sacred objects of the Order of Freya and destroy vampires was a very difficult task. At this point. Weed had become a gaming symbol in Korea. cold lines immediately formed a ticker.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung Comments flowed like a river. He was now in one of the strongest associations of the world. this goes back to anyone not interested. all NPCs in the continent have begun to talk about Weed. And their leader Lord Tori was above level 400!" “It cannot be! I don’t believe it. “Well. but still not the invincible hero he was before. there was some joy and some disappointment. Then the man who wrote the first very short text. the evidence was before our eyes..” Hard. However. After selling the account. However. Now all the NPCs talk about his adventures and how he found the sacred objects of the Order of Freya. Page 14 of 159 . is it not?” “It's impossible. He allegedly dealt with the vampire clan. that in the past were part of the immortal army of Bar Khan. If this is our Weed. Gradually people lost interest in the items. although the people discussed Weed. answered in detail. but the seed of doubt has already produced sprouts.” People could not believe the report. It was impossible to believe that one person could cope with this task. And now to learn that Weed was a paladin of the Order of Freya. there was one person who wrote in the comments: “I just came from the Royal Road.” Ordinary people who typed messages were flamed.” “What's that you say? Bar Khan’s immortal army?” “That's one of the most powerful forces in the Royal Road. designed for high-level group of players. about five hours ago. I'm in shock .

Items that were only for paladins and ring from the Pope! The armor was something you could get just by joining the order, but the ring was something you could only get after a doing a great service. Besides, there was even more reliable evidence - loot from vampires. With the vampire boots and coats. All doubt was removed. Lee Hyun slept for four hours and woke before sunrise. He quickly got dressed and went to the market to get food for breakfast and lunch for school for his sister. Of course the school had its own dining area, but in recent years almost no one ate there. It gave very small portions and the food was not credible. If she suddenly gets poisoned…no… "Now is an important period to not get ill ..." – Lee Hyun thought deeply. In order to prepare for the exams Hyun had to do his best. In addition, he must also see that that she does not feel left out due to their lack of parents, so in the process of preparing he put in his heart and soul. Like a fish in water, he went through all the rows of shops and markets, bargaining, and bought fresh vegetables and meat. During the day the market would be packed, and the food would not be fresh, so he always came early in the morning. Every time he would greet the vendors so they were eager to sell their products at lower prices. Lee was not an experience cook, but due to Royal Road, he felt confident in his abilities. So confident that he was ready to work in a restaurant. “Yeah! Brother, good morning.” “Just woke up?” When Hyun returned from the market, his sister left the room, rubbing her eyes. “Clean yourself up; you'll be late for school.” “Don’t worry, there’s still plenty of time.” “Don't be lazy. All the same you will have to do so quickly, quickly march to the bathroom.” “Fine! You're always swearing. And you! Have you prepared for the exam?”
Page 15 of 159
The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung Lee Hyun had promised his grandmother to get a certificate of general education. But in truth, he had never opened the book. During the preparations for the opening he studied the geography of the continent of Versailles. Instead of studying the history of Korea's, he studied the history of Royal Road. After all, if you want to achieve something in the game, information is one of the parameters of success. However, he could not tell his sister. “Of course! I am working hard, do not worry.” If you think about it, he technically wasworking hard. “Mmmm. Okay, I won’t.” While his sister washed, Lee Hyun cooked breakfast. Winter came and the street was cold, so he prepared a hot, bubbling stew and rice in five cereals, and even different salads. “Bon Appetit.” After his sister went to school, he had a few to spare. “It's time to check on the price of the items.” Lee Hyun joined the auction site. “What the ...” Due to newbies, the page number for the sword of Agatha was immense, however the price only exceeded a little over 230,000 won ($230 US). What kind of nonsense is this, even in the worst case, Lee Hyun expected to sell the blade for 2 million won ($2000 US). Disturbed, he went to see comments. “Mr. Weed, you are great! I really want to wear your items, but I have no money, so I decided to participate in this way though.” The person who wrote the text, set the starting price at 500 won. In general, the initial price was not important, because many people would participate in the auction and just put 500 to 1500 won. ($0.50 - $1.50 US) “Congratulations on your quest. Live up to your legend in the Continent of Magic!”

The second person who posted the text bid $501 won. ($0.501 US) Then everyone else followed suit. “Mr. Weed, good luck! 502 won ($0.502 US) “Weed, you're cool! 503 won” “Respect. Keep it up! 504 won” “Oh, you're already in the new game, right? 505 won.” “Ha ha! That's interesting. I will also take part. 506 won.” “Oh, how, how ... 601 won.” “Hey! Follow the sequence. 602 won.” A lot of people took part in the bid, so the interest began to grow and passers-by, who were unaware of Weed, heard the rumors and went to participate. “Ah! Weed, the man who's the subject of so many rumors.” “He became a monk?” After a while the number of people who visited the page reached 90,000 people. The price rose to 120,000 won. ($120 US) Even excluding repetitions in rates, the auction was attended by over 60,000 people. News of their favorite hero caused more people to join “Hey! Who is this coward who bid 200,000 won.” ($200 US) “If you fail to comply with the sequence, I promise I'll find you. Next time, be careful. We’ll start again with 200,001 won.” “Let’s try to get to 1 million won!” ($1000 US)

Their shops sold things ranging from weapons and clothing to skill books.everyone was talking about Weed. they got closer and closer to the coveted 200th level And then in the Kingdom of Rosenheim the NPCs began to talk: “Do you know about the adventurer Weed? He dealt with the terrible vampire clan and freed the people of Mora. doesn’t it? I heard that he was from the Rosenheim Kingdom. tell us all about it in detail. As a result. they received an endless amount of nagging. and they say. Weed. the King is looking for him. they realized that Weed completed a difficult and dangerous task.

However. gun shops. and immediately sent their congratulations: “Congratulations.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung “Royal Road? When I left I expected you to study.

They were owners of a small family shop in game. a good bow.” “And if that doesn’t help. or even the divine knowledge of the priest.

They did not take any quests. they went after high level monsters first. Guys!” Page 19 of 159 . we are weak. they roamed the expanse of Royal Road. The only thing that interested them besides their swords was battle. I'm ready. Wherever an enemy appeared. these swordsmen’s blazing eyes of greed desired one thing: Experience “Ha-ha-ha! Geomchidulchi?” “Yes. They eagerly beset the monster. with their unquenchable thirst for battle and even stronger monsters. because they were too lazy to bother. and a brave headless soldier quickly began backing away. Fearlessly. their appearance was very shabby. said: “3 copper? Oh-ho-ho! So much energy spent on this monster and we got nothing. Also. sword-wielding mob. but they.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung “Urraaa! Monsters!” The Geomchis rushed forward. with the stark poorness and a constant gnawing hunger. The teacher put his hands behind his back and. They started as Weed did with scarecrows. In addition. “Kill them all!” They collectively sought after new hunting grounds. at the sight of so many opponents even monsters would get nervous and tremble.” “Attack!” “Hip-hip!” An avalanche of swordsmen struck the headless soldier. No matter how brave he may be in the game. and then consistently overcame many dungeons. Apparently. a crowd of 505 people. eventually winning. They were akin to hobos. Always together.

So they traveled across the expanse of Royal Road and raised their level to 130. we'll go anywhere!” After those words the disciples and mentors had no choice. and that is why all 505 people at the same time changed their profession. Also with a new profession you would gain a significant increase in strength and agility. the Geomchis felt that they were heirs to Korean martial arts. their lives. “Sooner or later. The Geomchis were not afraid of monsters. They even shared the last crumbs of bread. we will stop dying from hunger!” With each encouragement. “Have you heard about the adventurer Weed?” “This time Weed has done something remarkable!” Of course. When the Geomchis heard the news they were enthusiastic. for you. No. and with their pride they lived and died.it's their nature. Page 20 of 159 . The Geomchis conviction grew stronger and their eyes blazed with passion. People on the street said that the soldiers gave many jobs. and a bit of armor durability. so the change to martial artist seemed like the next logical step. and this further strengthened the friendship between them. we should not think that their job change was based on the increase of stats. or you die fighting hunger. following the the words "First the sword!” Understandably their fear of starvation was greater than their fear of monsters. Well. and if you killed a famous monster then you would also gain glory and money. You either die fighting.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung “Yes. Master!” “Will we pick these pennies? Or will we become stronger and kill monsters that drop gold?” “Sir. the news had spread like wildfire. “Ohhh!” “If Weed made a feat so can we!

I'll look for you next time.” “You said Weed? Coincidently .. “My vitality increased by 160 points.

I won’t have to worry about money. In addition. However. in the hands of Weed it turned into priceless treasure.” After these thoughts. the situation could not be changed. and people were grateful for it.

After some time his sewing skills reached the intermediate. New skills: Sword Grind. but he was wrong because he didn’t take into account that the majority of people in the game were soldiers and they only asked him to make swords. And long after the end of the auction people came up and whispered. Full of hope Weed arranged for an auction: “Selling hand-sewn clothing!

Weed didn’t want to attract attention to himself and be identified as the Princess Knight. Of course. and the rest are usual. there were not friends. Ah!

For this reason. as promised.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung Of course. I love you. it was said that along the river were nine spectacular sceneries. but Weed. Weed sold all his rainbow tunics. no one would buy. When Royal Road was just released. with scarcely no players.” “Aww. many players choose to start off in the British Confederation: sometimes just to picnic by the river! Inseparable couples were littered around the river. it runs into the sea and fills it. Can it really be that beautiful?” “It’s as if the sky has come to meet the river. Even the strong torrential rain did not scare them off because the river was so beautiful. “Look at that.” The heavy rain fell on the earth overshadowed by a dark sky.” “Me too. a beautiful yet terrifying scene was portrayed.” “As the rain falls into the river. Here is the secret to an auction!

so an indifferent smile decorated their faces. Eventually it would go so fast that the water would explode flooding its banks... trying to escape. “Hehehe!” “Ahahah!” “Amazing!” Page 46 of 159 . I think it’s closer than before.” “Oh no! The water is getting closer!” “Huh. “Ahhhh!” “Save me!” “We have to run!” “This is hell!” Huge waves swallowed the careless couples. but to no avail: the river showed no mercy to them. running.” “It’s a little bit strange. Many small streams ran into the river and nourished it. People were screaming. it was a battle for life and death.. deeply romantic aura was broken as the river was constantly changing.” “Oh no! Oh no! Oh no!” The couples’ tranquil.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung Couples would sit lovingly together under a tree. those that couldn’t stand the sight of lovers chose a place far away from the river.” “I’m scared. gazing tenderly at the scene as they made promises of eternal love to each other. In real life. Conversation made at that time would remain in their memories for years to come. they lived a life of solitude.. As the streams filled it. and watched happily as they were swept away. In the thick fog. the rain gave it momentum. Spectators watched from afar.” “Yeah there’s a lot . But the world can be quite cruel to love! “Wow! There’s a lot of water.
” He closely followed the float with his eyes. no one could predict what kind of fish you would get and what the fish would do. The snow storms in the province of Mora. Weed had been sitting on the bank of the river for a whole week and he only reached beginner level 3 for fishing. While fishing he honed his sculpting skills but that was the only thing he made progress on. It all depended on what kind of fish you caught. you could not see such a sight. the river returned to its natural state. “Ha. However. Yes. with money. Spinning in the crystal water the fish would try to steal the bait on the hook. “Selling expensive fish!” If it wasn’t for the salary he received from the CTS Media. and soothed. The man was Weed. Weed shuddered at the thought of depositing his savings. I’ll be sure to catch something big!” It had been a week since he began to fish in the river. I’m going to catch a huge fish.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung Even for all the money in the world. Weed would not have had the opportunity to waste time. the revenue he made from repairing items. After the horrendous downpour. Although he was in such a serene setting. money from the awards he gained from the Order of Freya. His blacksmithing and tailoring levels rose quickly because of his high handcrafting skill but fishing was different. well now. And if you used the best bait. People living near the place at the time would find themselves becoming calm. a majestic river flowing smoothly and slowly. without losing focus for even a second. he could now relax and develop his fishing skills. The fearsome waves as they carried the couples away. In the vast continent of Versailles these sights were priceless. However there were others. Maybe you would catch something. and the auction. or maybe the fish would just eat the bait. The Bensa River flowed peacefully. “Definitely something large. Page 47 of 159 . one person had cold and prickly eyes as he looked down at the people below.
Also he was skeptical of the savings bank. “ Making a fine piece or even a grand piece was not so easy. the larger the better. If the bank went bankrupt. Weed had spent so much good bait.” Weed anxiously waited for Mapan as he fished. “Hey. and had nothing to show for it. I know! I’ll make something that attracts fish!” Weed jumped so that he almost dropped his bait. he had gained several levels along with unshakable faith in Weed. “I wish I was at Baran or Laviase. “This is impossible!” Out of anger he threw the rod on the ground. “South Korea’s politicians are a hotbed of corruption. As a moonlight sculptor. Mapan!” “Yes! Weed-nim!” he replied back. However.000 won. the government would only return up to 50. He would even go so far to say that as long as you're with Weed. “I’m missing something. he needed to set aside 2 million won every month. He needed an original idea and he had to implement it perfectly. he was influenced heavily by the local ice sculptures in Mora. often there was no fish. especially since it’s a rock.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung To pay for his sister’s tuition. He immediately contacted Mapan. The sculptures there are probably harmonized with their surrounding environment. his payment would have to be postponed every month. and I catch in it….” “It’ll take two days. Hmm. “I need a stone. Weed could not stop thinking about sculptural design. when he pulled his line up. so it’s not surprising that they cannot give large profits. Weed felt like the protagonist in a horror movie. Also make sure it’s pure and clean. Even the fact that he opened an account at a savings bank for mutual credit. Not surprisingly. full of attentiveness and a deep respect. he shuddered because all of the money would only cover breakfast. They often create a bank for money laundering. After the auction.” Every day while fishing. I wonder what kind of sculpture would fit a river landscape. That is if the bank was connected to a major politician. “There’s a flowing river. where the annual rate of interest was 2% above average compared to other banks.” Page 48 of 159 . gold coins will fall from the sky into your pockets. did not save him from his anxiety. Since he had no regular income.
Then he heard a voice: “Ho-ho. it does not mean that you have to sit day and night. if you made armor. players are not forced to do one thing. and it also increases your reflexes because all you do all day is wait for a fish to bite your hook. much more. “So… Depending on where you are. in real life they were related to fishing in one way or another. in Royal Road. Even more. it would raise craftsmanship.” Weed studied cooking by looking for new recipes in real life and in game. they become just a piece of meat. Their characters were developed only through fishing. As he reflected on his crisis he found one problem. He learned how to select and string bait. He joined the fishing club and began to learn the basics of fishing. blacksmithing. But he was too impatient to fish. exotic fish. there were a lot of players who loved to fish. you have to rely on your own skill. You can’t rely on good bait and your fishing skill. Fish freely float in the river. For example. It increases vitality. how to choose a place for fishing. Luckily. It was a fishing club. Like engraving. As with sculpting and other skills. these players did not play because they liked to game. If you choose a craft profession. all players could go hunt monsters and not feel too weak. while the system assists you. and chatted with interesting people.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung The gears in his head began to spin wildly. and endurance. and a couple of other skills. making stuff. the kind of fish you catch will be different?” Weed asked the jolly bearded fisherman Page 49 of 159 . Ate delicious. And in Royal Road. I don’t have to raise my levels again. carelessly and deliberately. stamina. you need to understand something. right? But once we catch them.” On the river. Fishing is something that cleans your soul. But as the saying goes. With this. and much. then they are not free anymore. but I’ll have to rehash the basics of fishing. “trust but verify” so Weed decided to approach the problem from another angle. “I’ll learn how to fish. craft skills raised a large variety of skills. fishing also helps a player survive. Faced with a crisis he became fully immersed searching for his mistake. That is why we want to catch them so badly. Royal Road became a place of promise. Also. For them. They fished in amazing places not found on Earth. but because they liked fishing.
“ “Uh… I already knew that. the latter is particularly important: When there is a convergence of cold and warm water. without hesitating. He didn’t want to rush and mess up the sculpture. Perhaps the sculpture would show the peak of his current skills. this is great!” Weed said happily After changing his location and selecting his bait.. “Uhhh. Mapan.. squinting he said “Is the water in a river the same everywhere?” There are deep places. wait and see. resulting in penalties. He would choose a secluded spot because he thought there would be no more fish in crowded areas. “Here. without food. However. “Oh. Weed believed that he would succeed even though he was making a rock sculpture for the first time. He then chose to sit among a group of fishermen but found it too noisy and crowded. Although I may be wrong . pointing to a cart with a big gray boulder inside.... the quality of fish he caught improved. with cold water or with warm water. that’s absolutely true. Think to yourself.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung “Yup. fished near a skilled fisherman. Weed fiddled with his knife and tried to figure out something. I brought the stone you requested. So that’s how . . In addition. Stony places with seaweed. By the way. one can find there the most delicious fish. you won’t find river fish. now he knew that location mattered so Weed.. and at a river you won’t find any whales. Mapan waited a moment and said: Page 50 of 159 ..” “Ah. he caught much more fish than before. What are you going to do with it . waiting for him to work. with pure water. I mean does it matter where I fish along a river?” “Tsk tsk” clicked the fisherman.. and sat watching on the ground.” Weed realized that what he had thought initially was wrong. Novices would often immediately rush to work.” announced Mapan. He loved to observe him work.” “Are you going to make a sculpture?” “Even though I know this might fail but…” Mapan had seen Weed create amazing sculptures many times. and then mess up. mixed with food. “Thank you. At sea. if you have the time. and there are shallow waters.” “Well.
flowing hair… Hmm.” Weed worked hard carving with his knife. and got human legs in exchange for her beautiful voice. Yes.. When the prince woke he thought the temple girl saved him so he decided to marry her. that’s stupid. Ahh! I’ll just remake an actress” Weed began to recall well-known actresses and made changes to the sculpture. We need to do something that will help me raise my fishing level. The face changed a lot. the little mermaid in desperation turned to a dark witch. At that moment. All the inhabitants of the sea bitterly mourned her death and often visited her resting place. Surprisingly. He was ashamed a little of making her naked. he opposed it. this time he would have to make changes. Page 51 of 159 . In despair she jumped out of a window into the sea and turned into sea foam. and the mermaid caught the unconscious prince and rescued him.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung “What are you going to make?” “Uhhh. The ship began to sink. Mapan hit the nail on the head. and when she was 15.. what should I do . and the body became more curved. a mermaid would be the best. I’ll also have to make the top nude. “Everything below the belt should be a fish tail…bigger eyes. However. something good which attracts fish ... she fell in love at first sight and for several days accompanied the ship. besides if she saw it. “Hmm. Upon hearing this. and fish would swim to the location of the statue. Weed stopped and appreciated the work done. she went above water for the first time in her life..” “Still don’t know yourself?” Weed gave a silent nod. “We need to make a sculpture associated with the sea. the statue would just scare the fish. then he would be in trouble. No.. The face appeared quite similar to Seoyoon. A Mermaid!” The well-known fairy tale of a mermaid: Once there was a mermaid princess that lived her whole life under water. Internally. Just what is it? "Maybe we can make a huge bait?” Weed seriously considered the suggestion but decided against it. a woman. Recently he made sculptures of women by hand and so without further ado he again embodied the image of Seoyoon. Interested fishermen gathered around Weed. “Yes. But then there was a storm. She went into the palace and tried to win the prince over but failed. she saw a ship with a young prince on board.
. In the end. Weed made sure to make the sculpture young because.” Apparently a nymph and a mermaid was something similar.. it turned out as a beautiful but sad girl with a baby face. Weed had become the enemy of most anglers.. Tink! You have finished the Sea Nymph Sculpture The outstanding work of a master engraver Artistic value: 450. Effects: The power of a water spirit will prevent the river from flooding for 10 years. This effect cannot be combined with other sculptures. so strange events attracted many players. I’ve never seen a sculptor like him before. and this similarity played a cruel joke.” Weed lowered his hands.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung “Oh! What is this?” “A Sculpture. “Honestly. For them. quickly cut out details in the sculpture. “Ah! I'll fix everything!” In his situation.” “It’s beautiful. A Water nymph “the daughter of the sea god. And now there was a sculpture that would prevent floods for the next 10 years. Weed. he had to act quickly. as in the legend the little mermaid was not a grown woman.” The fishermen condemned weed as they looked at the statue. The statue was supposed to help catch fish. “. and not give any extra effects. as solitary men they liked to watch the river as it carried couples away.. scrolling through images in his head. I didn’t intend for this” justified Weed as the fishermen closed in on him. Weed turned toward the sculpture and shouted: “Sculpture destruction!” Page 52 of 159 . “You . with a nice fish tail.” Fishing on the river was slow and boring.
but it still looked impressive.” Page 53 of 159 . what you see?” the teacher anxiously asked “I don’t see anything. A ratio of 1:2 of your art stat has been added to you dexterity for one day. But it could not be used more than once a day and decreased performance. a boy.. Now he fished so quickly that his hands were a blur.

Does that mean there’s a town nearby?” As the master jumped up so did all 500 of his students. After fearlessly attacking the dragon. The Geomchis reacted very strongly to the boy’s words.” The master on behalf of his students asked the child: “Is there is a village nearby?” The child looked nervous and stuttered: “Ye-y-y-y . they did not want to admit it. Frankly. “That’s weird. “Why did you call us uncles!” “We’re not even married. We are young!” “And I am only 20!” Wailed a pained cry from the crowd.” Geomsamchi quickly ran forward and brought the boy. And because none of them knew how to cook. The Geomchis. though. they ate under cooked or burnt meat.” Page 54 of 159 . making everyone sick. the Geomchis resorted to forest barriers and rare game from hunting. looking at the child could not help but cry.” “And eat delicious bread. With the boy’s words the Geomchis began to reflect on themselves.” “There he is. Rare because the group of 500 could not move quietly enough to catch animals off guard. I see strangers form parties and hunt together but we don’t do that. they should have been happy that they were not mistaken for robbers. but who are these uncles?” “Uncles!” The crowd quickly became rowdy. Yum-yum. but they were lost. With their supplies long gone.
The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung “Why don’t we?” “Yeah. The giant man “a type of monster related to the giants” torments the villagers around the clock. But this time. Then the boy fell on his knees. Save the boy’s parents or they will die! Reward: Black sword.

It was not difficult.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung “Well. As the giant walked out of his cave it grew angry at the sight of uninvited guests.” “Probably more than 3 meters in diameter.” the students cheered. At the sound of the Geomchis. They scattered harmoniously left and right. “Run!” Shouted the teacher. “Oh! That’s big. Wham! The huge foot of the giant left a deep mark on the spot where the Geomchis were standing.

While he was fishing. and found that it was much better than what they had at present. and with each new dish his determination grew stronger. what he was doing was nothing like that.” The disciples were stunned that the boy did not disappoint them. He was sitting on the rocks and gazed longingly at the Bensa River. we would like to give them to you. “Here.

Sometimes not wanting to waste time he ate the fish raw. Slender and tall. I will only eat fish. take it. And next to Weed was always the same person. “The rest of the swords are in the village. In appreciation. “As long as I get an average fish. They helped people in distress.” He swallowed the fish whole.” Weed kept on fishing only on the strength of his will and obstinacy. you can sell them in the city for a good price. He always liked to fight. Page 58 of 159 .6%. like his blacksmithing or tailoring skill. collect items and get stronger. After all. while still training! “Cheers!” “OOOO! Now. increased their fame.

Weed rose his fishing seriously. Now however. And our village is famous for medicinal herbs. leisurely fishing which didn’t even make money.
And at some point began to compare fish. At first Zephyr paid hardly any attention to him. The two men grimly watched the river.” “Damn. But the only thing that hung on his hook was just an old boot.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung It would have probably went on as usual. was pulling his prey out of the river. a big fish!” Shouting.

In the history of fishing in the Bensa River. when Weed’s float went under water. “Oh great. Fish were strong. more than 45 centimetres. His fishing level was well above average. Weed and the fish pulled on the line. but then came Weed. When he arrived. but with great control. that fish ranked among the top 10 largest fish ever caught. Therefore. he pulled his rod back. It was a humongous fish. +50 reputation +30 endurance Page 59 of 159 . Weed decided.” Frustrated Zephyr sat on a rock and had started to stick on new bait. spin. but gradually he began to respond to Weed. Weed carefully. sometimes on the contrary. Using a lot of force was bad. and if you thoughtlessly pulled at the line. As if playing a game.
The owner was at the counter alone. It was huge and demanding mission.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung +30 intelligence +30 wisdom. “While the focus on this is finally over” he thought to himself. Having achieved his goal. wolves. such a flight of thought in these statues .. the crown of Fargo and many others.” Page 60 of 159 . I must go. perhaps I am..” Weed left the Bensa River. After so much of suffering. which would take him more than one year. And you . you’re probably older than me right?” “Well if you ask. “What leads you here?” “I have come to sell some sculptures. Such depth. when they made this statue?” “Yes. “Wow!” The shopkeeper could not hide his delight. I did. and headed to the capital of the kingdom. Kroin. which he made while fishing. Perhaps we’ll even see each other again. he began to slowly collect his things. Ding-dong! He rang the bell on the door of the souvenir shop. Weed set out to learn all the craft professions to master level. But now with his stats increased Weed was pleased. and you happen to look at the wolf. “Are you going?” Zephyr cautiously asked when he saw that Weed had begun to collect his belongings. finally increased his fishing level. “Excellent! I have never seen such excellent products.. His voice was full of regret. to sell his figurines..” Weed put his products on the counter: figurines of vampires.” “I just realized that we never spoke much . Weed... “Yes. I cannot even imagine their value.
was at one time engaged in the work of a sculptor. they moved on to the main point: Page 61 of 159 .” “Oh! Even so. I will be very grateful. so I had to open the shop. Eat it for Health and quietly gaze at my statues. Weed brought a simple dish. I cooked it myself. After exchanging pleasantries and evaluating the figurines.. what do you want from him. But my desire to sculpt does not lose to anyone. you are right. said a few kind words. his efforts would backfire. while the shopkeeper priced figurines. and if such a person were to say that he looked very tall. For example. and one should be careful not to overpraise. I feel it.” “Impossible. If you do not possess eyes enabling to see and appreciate beauty.” “Yes.” “I have only recently embarked on the path of a sculptor.” “Ohoho” Weed laughed heartily.” So. when I look into the eyes of a wolf. “Oh. a living statue . choosing his words. you cannot even understand the nature of good works. I too.. and his relationship with the owner of the shop greatly improved. it was necessary to consider them. Take all tall men and criticize them: “Growth means nothing. then the effect would be the opposite. I had to go hungry for four days.” “Why thank you. Or else. Maybe I will look for you in the future. In order not to fail so miserably. but alas. you had to carefully select words for compliments.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung “Were you hungry?” Weed nodding played along: “Yes. The shopkeeper would immediately notice the flattery and begin to think. Look very good. Consider me a novice sculptor and suggest any advice if you see any errors. if the shop keeper had really short legs. try this dish. yes! While you evaluate my products. You can even use criticism. with the shop owner’s last words he offered a prepared fried fish. they traded with each other phrases and their friendship strengthened. it is better to be a little obsequious and friendly.” Flattery! Gifts! Dedication! To the people that have influence. Who would not be pleased when praised! But compliments should be used carefully. I didn’t have much talent. and I still have a lot to learn. Therefore. or when laughing look honest.
he was about to leave. Throwing the money into his backpack. It was much more efficient to make money by hunting rather than selling statuettes. You see beautiful things and make them into sculptures” said the shopkeeper. so I can trust you. Did you know that Darone lives in the town of Rega? You have acquired information about the master-sculptor Darone. Is that all right?” “I’ll sell them all” Weed replied without hesitation. Chapter 5: Shapeshifter Sculpture Matthew1122 Weed went to the slums of the city. it was very important that he uncover all of the secrets of Page 62 of 159 . Did you happen to hear about the master-sculptor Darone? I usually do not tell. but you have the gift of the sculptor. but his next words made him change his mind. Here there were no shops or useful buildings. Recently. the payment would not cover even the cost of simple physical labor. money and more time! He was ready to get out of his skin just to earn more money. “I see you have a talent for sculptural design. But until then I’ll have to do this” he thought sadly. I will give you 3 gold per sculpture. Even if you put in extra time and effort into you work. It was said that if you bought a house here. “For such a superb job. But when you sell to a shop. "Maybe when my level rises. As a sculptor. I can earn more. Although if you figured how much time he spent on the creation of figurines. Considering that this was another compliment Weed was already heading toward the exit. you could get a view of the whole castle.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung “How much would you give for them?” Weed goal for the game never changed. Weed gratefully took the 245 gold. it’s possible to get 2 or 3 gold. “A Sculptor must feel the beauty of life. he stopped selling figurines to ordinary players. money. The only reason Weed came here was because of Darone. Money. Built on a hill with terraced buildings. and I see it in you. people would only pay something around 1 gold. the house he was looking for was located somewhere on the outskirts of the fort.
he was damn lucky to find one of the masters so quickly. Weed finally found Darone’s house. he established a friendly relation with him. “It seems that person is Darone. As your soul changes. Weed only saw him work for a brief time but he immediately recognized that he was a master.. Now he really anticipated meeting a master engraver. Engraver?” “Yes. It is necessary to realize your own skills. However. Only after he finished did he look at Weed. it was very strange.. After being deceived by the sage he became a Legendary Moonlight Sculptor at level 60. but persevered and mastered several craft skills. The house was surrounded by a fence.” Weed understood what he meant but he couldn’t even count the number of times when the engraving knife technique helped him. you develop different skills and create something that is entirely your own. With the benefits of his other skills such as the sculptural life giving skill. While working. But that wasn’t the end of it. he went to the sage to find a profession. but he couldn’t really call it one because of how shabby it was.. “Even if he doesn’t cling to fame. he would periodically stop and spit blood on the ground. Then.” As he went inside.” “So. If you learn all five techniques. “Each engraving master has their own skills. to fully utilize a profession was not something easy to do…. First. there stood a middle-aged man. when Weed heard of sculptural design he was skeptical. But still. Therefore. The story of how he became a sculptor and mastered it was incredible. He suffered through many hardships as a sculptor. Darone was carving a middle-aged woman in a wide skirt. “You waited a long time. he quietly watched Darone sculpt.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung sculptural design. “I want to learn!” Page 63 of 159 .” If you remember how it all began. you found me . I see you want to learn my secrets. following the advice of his instructor. With his love of battle and contempt for sculptors. he became friends with the instructor leading the training centre by beating a scarecrow day and night. He didn’t want to interfere but the fact that he was making a sculpture resulted in many questions. Inside. he became excited. to live in a place like this…” At first. you can learn a final skill.
” He looked around the castle. go and try to understand the souls of five living beings. ‘giving to sculptures’ and now he had to copy the movements of five living things in order to penetrate their souls.. “Five creatures…. But I do not know if you can . “Then. “Is this the general attitude of a sculptor when he gives a task?” he asked. Weed left the fortress. I don’t just reveal my secrets to anyone. the criteria fitted any living creature..” Although he did not want to. ‘the engraving knife technique’. he did not have to worry about eating poisonous plants.. I shouldn’t choose a complex creature. He could not figure out what to do. he began to imitate the bunny. His first objective was to imitate a rabbit. Because of his knowledge of herbs. Small rodents and deer were too fast. because of his indomitable will power. “What? You do not want to learn my secret? Are you rejecting my quest?” Weed answered quickly.. Therefore. so his choice fell on a rabbit. I must first check whether you are worthy to teach. “Yum-yum. Right now I’ll go and repeat the movements of five creatures.” With that description. Running around the grounds were rabbits..” Weed was on his knees chewing grass. Is that good enough?” “Yes.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung “Good. Page 64 of 159 . Crouching on the ground.. he snuck up on a rabbit which was peacefully munching grass. He made up his mind. I really want to learn. deer.” You have accepted the quest. and other animals of the beginning levels. squirrels. Sculpting secrets went against common sense.” Tink! Weed was confused. “No. The kinds of monsters beginners killed. However. “.
and without warning changed speeds.. Then Weed did the same. but it was still unclear what this had to do with sculptural skills. “Rabbits . he repeated the movements correctly. Weed learned a lot about the bizarre behavior of rabbits. the only thing that went into his mouth was grass.. Naturally so did its human counterpart. this was the only rabbit that was spared from the hands of Weed. Weed could do nothing but to squat jump after. cute bunny was followed by a big and cruel person. the behavior of rabbits was very different than what Weed thought before. First. Periodically he would stop.” But he did not hunt rabbits. Side kick!” The rabbit rolled on the ground following Weed’s commands. if I could just get a bite…tasty. and sometimes would jump to express its cheerful mood. you realize that they are very nice animals. Progress 84. Turn around.8%. drink water. the bunny sat and looked toward the sky at the moon. In the whole continent of Versailles. Running after the rabbit. and now just looking at the rabbit caused him to drool. You repeated the movement of the rabbit.” When his progress reached 99. However this was only the beginning. and his progress reached 35%. Weed hopped after the rabbit. “Sit down. “The rabbit looks so tasty. chew grass and watch him.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung But to everyone else he looked very silly.6% Fortunately. “What! Why is the rabbit so fast?” You repeated the movement of the rabbit. However in just 5 days he reached 80% and now was able to give them simple commands. In any case.2% The more progress he made the slower it rose. after the rabbit there were four other creatures. Progress 0. When you know them better. The small. marked his territory. For a whole day. The bunny apparently felt his eyes and hopped toward another location. Stand up. The rabbit washed his ears. The rabbit moved in zigzags. Page 65 of 159 .
Due to his high dexterity he would not be shaken off. However. including bonuses. he felt it made him stronger. he got onto all fours and tried hard to keep up with the deer. and increase the chance of creating a beautiful work.” Page 66 of 159 . headed to the town of Rega. Mapan and Hwaryeong. and suddenly as if frightened of something ran off. even here there were pitfalls. After the rabbit's turn was the deer’s. As for strength and dexterity. Hwaryeong. Weed could do nothing but go after him. Weed did not consider himself a typical sculptor because he put all of his points in strength and dexterity.” “No. chasing a deer was much more invigorating. “If it’s a deer I might be able to follow them!” The deer calmly plucked leaves from the branches of trees. and he had 505 points in dexterity. Also the deer was a lot more elegant. But Weed was stingy about putting points in art. “Everything went smoothly all thanks to you. but that wasn’t easily seen.” But it was too late to change to a different animal. after some transactions. Regular players with the profession of a sculptor put all their points in art. You repeated the movement of a deer. Progress 0. That's why Weed developed his art stat passively through the work of his sculptures. Art was supposed to enhance the value of items he made. of course. it’s because of your skill as a merchant Mapan.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung You have fully mastered the movement of the rabbit.2% After hopping around like a rabbit. It suddenly dawned on Weed: “Deer run on four legs. Now his art stat exceeded 800 points.
However. As a result. even with these buffs. I wish I was there when Weed fought and defeated the Vampire Lord Tori with the help of the Order of Freya's Paladins. They found a large crowd watching something. they persevered and gradually built up their strength. freed the innocent villagers and defeated the final boss Tori. but believe me. At first glance I saw that he was a very special person. and all of the stories about Weed completely delighted her. Weed and his force stormed the Black Castle. This time. journeys were long and boring.” Hwaryeong eyes sparkled. they began to talk about Weed. Mapan could reduce the weight of traded goods. not everyone can complete a B level quest. Mapan and Hwaryeong generally talked to pass the time. She saw earnest heroes in pain. sitting on a cart. were engaged in a friendly conversation. all of these events played out as one epic movie. between which took a long and boring journey. She loved fairy tales and legends. merchants made sure to make friends with the NPCs when they visited a town. She was really impressed when she heard that Weed and AlveronAlveron . When all of the cursed paladins outside of the castle were freed. struggling against the cold. While the quest was still in progress. if you weren’t devoted. and increase the moving speed of vehicles. There they defeated hordes of vampires. trading would be very boring. “People talk about this now.set out to save the cursed paladins! When they arrived in the ruins of the abandoned village.a Pope Candidate of the Order of Freya . Inside Hwaryeong’s head. “Oh. Page 67 of 159 . It was unusual for so many people to be gathered on the plains because the city gates were still a couple of hours away. but then they encountered something odd. Trading consisted of buying and selling. Mapan shrugged his shoulder.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung Mapan and Hwaryeong. He even built an ice dragon in the northern continent. fighting monsters and even the forces of nature itself." “Yeah. When he came down from the sky…” As they shared small talk they neared the city gates. Weed sculpted a gigantic ice dragon. Hwaryeong's impression of the recount of Weed's quest was that it was an incredible and dangerous adventure. Weed and Alveron were weakened by the bitter cold and surrounded by monsters of overwhelming strength. Still. So. As a merchant.
they turned back toward the vehicle. they wouldn’t have noticed.. “Oh!” “Wow!” It was Weed! Weed was imitating a fox. They were not close enough to see the face of the player from where they were standing. and now a fox. “Shall we?” asked Hwaryeong. so did the player. and now foxes. Completely ignoring Weed. Weed mastered their behaviors. long tail swaying gently in deft movements. Rabbits. who is this? This is kind of weird. After a long and tedious journey. An unknown player was following the fox on all fours. Now he looked for his last creature. and they joined the crowd. he gets better and better.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung Mapan and Hwaryeong looked at each other. and pondered the situation. Mapan and Hwaryeong gave each other a look. Its lush. if it wasn’t for the player.. “Wow. But they were not shocked by the tail. Running across the field was a fox. Page 68 of 159 . they were very interested to know what was happening there. a goblin. As he looked back Mapan and Hwaryeong saw the player’s face. goblins. Without saying a word. while everyone else watched excitedly. Sometimes there was a difference in movement that was so small. Then they saw something that shocked them to the core. “Yes.” Mapan began questioning a number of people standing around. And with each imitation. but I saw him imitate a bunny.” Mapan stopped his cart. When the fox tumbled. When the fox jumped.” And at that moment. deer. Both of their faith in Weed was boundless. the fox turned back. a deer. but sometimes he did some embarrassing things. A little girl standing nearby started giggling: “That man? I don’t know who he is. so did the player. It is necessary to look.” “There are really strange people these days .
Weed had a meal prepared with vegetables and special grass to make even more progress. Progress of 89. he ran hard on all fours and began imitating them. A horse is an animal that is born to run.. they were often killed. If not for the fence enclosing the pasture. Therefore. he could not do it. he had to spend a lot of time searching and redoing everything. Having developed a plan. by eating grass. And finally: You have fully mastered the movement of the horse. They were easy to find. his movements were constrained and a little clumsy.7% You repeat the movements of the horse.9% Two. the more progress he made. four! The more time passed. Progress 59. this job takes a lot of time!” Because rabbits. and not far from town were pastures for horses.. He chose a horse. I’ll get to learn the secret of sculptural design. There. Weed decided that the fifth animal would be something that no one would attack. I will learn about the horse much faster. Clop-clop-clop! While imitating a deer. Progress 12. deer and foxes were beginner monsters. “This is the last one. Now he ran familiarly and comfortably. Page 69 of 159 . three.0% You repeated the movements of the horse.” You repeated the movements of the horse. As a result.” You repeated the movements of the horse.1% After a day he was only at 12%. Then he realized something. if I just preserve a little more. so even with his high dexterity Weed had a hard time trying to keep up.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung “Damn. Weed was filled with euphoria. “You are what you eat. goblins. Progress 95. Therefore.
and wolves. on two legs. The fact that he followed the movements of the animals wasn’t a secret to his friends.. Tink! You have mastered a special movement skill. and its use was a serious burden. When running with the wind.. Of course. puzzled.” After completing the task. he didn’t want to attract attention. Weed smiled broadly. Weed waited quietly and observed that the sculpture was very similar to the old one. you will be able to speed up by 60% more than usual. When running on certain terrains. In use. people.. “Nothing. it consumes health and mana. Page 70 of 159 . They just will never know.Resistance +5 . “He’s making the same sculpture again” said Weed.. However. At one time he mass produced figures: birds. One of the skills of movement. Quadruped Run. not a lot of experience for copies was given. When running against the wind your stamina consumption goes down by 30%. While he worked. Again Darone was working on a sculpture of a middle-aged woman.Stamina +5 . Weed went back to the castle.” His imitation of the animals turned into a skill that ran on 4 legs! However.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung Weed flew like the wind! And somehow he had the feeling that on the four legs he ran faster than two. speed is further enhanced by 80%. your speed is increased by an Additional 20%. However.Dexterity +5 “Wow! Wow .” And yet. “Looks like I can’t use this skill in front of people . .
Or a rabbit running away from predators. trying to understand its soul. A rabbit. and then biting. Why rabbits have long ears and a short tail. for the first few minutes he felt something was wrong. it was not surprising. frankly it’s ugly. Now working on the figure. Now. then I’ll tell you my secret. Even a rabbit chewing grass.” If you become a master sculptor. but now he could make a sad figure of a rabbit. then you have the power to create a princess so beautiful even the gods would turn green with envy. If you pass this simple test. Weed was surprised at how comfortable and interesting his work became. from large to small. “What did I do wrong?” All of his confidence evaporated. he felt a little resentment. In general.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung “And the face . goblin. detailed and lively.” Weed was experienced in making sculptures. You have done well.. As well as working on the figure of a horse. In general. wolves to dragons.” “Nice work and you finished rather quickly. However. since over time his sculptural skill increased. The figure in his hands was very different from his previous statues.” Before. It felt like he was spending time with friends. he simply used to copy an image he had in his head. keep the image of these animals in mind and sculpt them. fox and a horse. His figurine became more expressive. I made a lot of them and sold them to other players. “I remember making rabbit and foxes. When he repeated the movements of a goblin. the woman had a common face.” “No problem... Weed stopped and began to seriously ponder what had gone wrong. When he imitated the animals. But there was something new. However. now Weed could highlight the nuances of life of a white bunny. deer. Page 71 of 159 . I repeated their movements. he recalled the endless fields. first tearing. “Oho ho . Darone finally finished and turned to Weed: “You completed my assignment?” “Yup. Weed began thinking. and how a rabbit moves was now subconsciously taken into account in his work. and a joyful one.” Weed confidently began cutting away with his carving knife.. he began to know them better.
Several times he made ‘fine pieces’ and even created a ‘master piece’ when he made the ice dragon. Resistance to fire magic + 15%. The features of these animals appearing in effect. but very complex sculptures. goblin. But now he saw that even small sculptures could give the same or even better effects. Small. fox.” Usually his sculptures increased the amount of health and mana you had. Ding! A grand piece! You have completed the five figurines of animals. However this was the first time he created a 'grand piece' out of a small sculpture. They reflect the work of a real master and therefore contain great artistic value. deer. “In addition to these effects . he only thought that large sculptures were valuable. “A rabbit. Increases affinity towards animals. You’ve passed my test perfectly.

Darone’s orders. you can gain a better understanding of my secrets. it is possible to show the soul of the being displayed. want to fulfil the orders I’ve received. “Ugh. All I do is love my work. I just devote my heart to it. I don’t use any special techniques or rules when creating sculptures. This will help you. it’s a skill only for those who understand sculpture…cough cough” Darone coughed and spat out a new batch of blood. Before you would cut out the form of the animal. This is required to fully understand his secret skill. That is the secret of a sculptor. as a sculptor to make living sculptures in the future. at minimum. But with sculptural understanding. Besides.

Time is running out. you will have to follow Darone’s orders. For a whole week. I would. but a secret skill was at stake. Darone continued. Will you work with me for a week? By working with me. I cannot say that all is well. Difficulty: Profession quest Reward: Experience gained at this time is multiplied by two. “Are you okay?” Weed asked anxiously. and then I can leave this world with a peace of mind. “The secret is nothing special. are one of the main qualities of a sculptor Rewarded: secret skill! Learn from Darone directly.” “That's it?” “The understanding of what you’re creating.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung You have completed the quest Understanding a Sculpture. there was another reason.
” “That's nice. This looks like a good opportunity.” After working for a week with Darone. This time. under white sails far. True. Of course. he had a lot more experience. Creating sculptures isn’t an easy job. far away from the sun. A fleet. A sculpture had to meet the requirements of the customer. at first had difficulties. so I decided to be a sculptor. On the first day he only made 15 sculptures. For Weed. Besides. Taking orders. chatting. who was used to working as he liked.

Now I’m prepared to suffer…” He decided to make 30 sculptures a day resulting in 210 by the end of the week. Weed became friends with Darone. Weed could significantly increase his sculptural skill. and on success. and it’s hard to get experience. and then the third day 35. there were leisurely conversations. “Yes. he received compensation in the form of experience. You need to put your soul into the job. But over the time. “Decide what you’re going to do. because he was working on an order he didn’t have to worry about what to create. he got used to it and easily understood what the customer wanted. Morning. everything should work out. the ones that required deep thought. and listening to stories. floating on smooth waves. His orders didn’t vary much. while working. A customer highly requested a dolphin sculpture. among them some were difficult. He only needed to do a little work. It’s not enough to see and create an object. “It’s not easy to have fun. “As a young man I met a woman and fell in love with her” said the master. so I sculpted her. I can’t learn much if I take the simple orders. afternoon. and evening. Weed could only take the simple orders. and with a little more effort he could reach intermediate 7.” Darone said as he handed Weed a sheet with a list of orders. 300 sculptures. his sculpting was at intermediate 6.

Darone painfully said: “Well.” Weed stayed for one more day.” “I’ll help. Another plus would be that it was a very useful skill in understanding sculptures. it was hard to tell if it was worth turning into powerful monster. he would be a cute monster rabbit in the level 200 range.” “I'm listening. if Weed shape-shifted into a rabbit. For example. “Sculptural Shapeshifting . I have a personal request for you. And so. On the other hand. Go and try out several skills. “Kulrok!” Darone crouched again and coughed up more blood. “You . Finally he finished his last sculpture. you would become an easy target even to non-combat professions. Weed learned another secret of sculpting. He gave it his all and was about to depart from the world. However do you know why your profession is different from a normal moonlight sculptor?” “No..” Page 76 of 159 . Putting aside his engraving knife.. Master put his whole soul into the last sculpture. It was a middle-aged woman. I’ll do that..” “Yes. A Moonlight Sculptor only grows with increasing experiences.. which would be difficult to do.” Because his level and stats would remain the same.
it's a good profession?” Weed thought his profession was a scam.. you need to invest your heart into it.” Money. nothing more .. your profession does not bring glory to you .” “So . “A sculpture….. Secrets of a master onto the hands of a beginner.... “That's the twist. Even after a long search on the internet. A knight who called himself the best. Even now he thought of changing jobs. not glory! That was what Weed sought.” “. once upon a time there lived a king who united the entire continent. a legendary moonlight sculptor is no different .. “Sarah ..” “You bring your profession glory. he couldn’t find a difference between a legendary moonlight sculptor. he drew his last breath and disappeared in a flash of light. “A legend is a legend. Page 77 of 159 .?” said Darone... So.” It would have been better if Weed did not know that! He would rather at least have some hope.. Therefore the words of the master brought him into confusion.” Darone said quietly. A merchant who made a great fortune and others… Only one of them said that they were legendary…. after the past few weeks of training did Weed begin to realize what kind of profession he chose and which direction he had to go. Just being a sculptor is not enough. and a moonlight sculptor.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung Weed really didn’t know.... Only people who really loved the world would leave behind a sculpture…” Only now.. “Most professions are passed on from teacher to student. “.. but he could not forget the hype and hope in his heart that the profession is unique. Staring upwards. he left a small wooden sculpture. And it can only be captured by a true master. thinking that his legendary profession was something better than an ordinary profession.... Even the smallest fox has its own soul. So. At the spot where he died..

with only one slip you would fall. and the last time he gained a level was the 9 levels he gained then. “Maybe I’ll die alone and forgotten…” He felt weak. “The myth has it that there have been five masters in sculptural art on the Continent. Perhaps his source of fear was the fact that while he developed his crafting skills. but for the last few months he had been developing his craft skills. I am the one to take the task for this generation.” He felt that he lost his sense of combat. either. if you succeeded in collecting all five of the statues. They are known to leave their own crafts in their legacies. Combat was like walking on a tightrope. and obligation accompanying it has flowed in my family. for they came and went like the wind. everyone else was out hunting. It was shaped like an imperial knight. and solve the puzzles arising from them.” Rodriguez said. “But what is this statue for?” Weed had already received a wooden statue of a different shape when he carried out Zahab’s Moonlight Sculptor quest.” Rodriguez said.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung Volume 1 Chapter 9 Some of you may not realized. so I surmise that this statue is probably one of them. Now that I hand it to you. Of course. Usually. According to the myth. “It is the legacy of Geihar von Arpen the Magnificent. he fought against difficult and dangerous monsters. The blood. “Rodiguez handed Weed a wooden statue that fitted in his palm. but the wooden statue dropped by Darone is really important. Page 79 of 159 . It had been several months since he returned to the Order of Freya. the ultimate secret of sculptural art will appear. “What is this?” Weed asked. “It has been a long time since I’ve fought.” Chapter 6: Siege of Ohdein Castle Matthew1122 Weed left Rega in full excitement. I am finally liberated from the reins. “I do not know the secret of this wooden statue. Against difficult and dangerous monsters. My family used to serve in the Imperial Family of the Arpenian Empire. it is only an ancient myth.
Master?” “What is it.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung Sometimes he would get whispers from Pale. With Surka. Page 80 of 159 . because they felt uncomfortable distracting the affairs of a man who did so much for them.. and Hwaryeong reached level 210. but Weed stood still. His level didn’t increase. The more they played the more they became recognized as ‘A group of Crazy Men’. Everyone moved forward. Even Mapan reached level 160. Though he cannot say he did nothing. Their goal was to get stronger. Geomdulchi?” “It’s about Weed. Striking quickly. they took it down. Weed had come a long way. However. “Um. **************************************************************************** “Oh my God!” “I’m going to die. saying he passed level 190.” The Geomchis didn’t often whisper to Weed. During these past months. they confused the wolf. Geomdulchi and Geomsetchi continued to interact with Weed. Irene and Romuna having about the same levels. and he was able to learn a secret skill.. Five hundred players led by the first five Geomchis. by maintaining pressure and attacking from different angles. Even against stronger monsters the Geomchis didn’t hesitate.” At the sight of a monster they rushed into battle. Then. but his stats did.
Isn’t that right?” “Yeah. The master swung his sword as if it was the most natural thing to do in the world.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung For one reason: Information was power! After all. “Weed has completed his objective and is going on hunt. I want to see him fight. do you think he has forgotten how to fight?” “Well.” So everyone went out of their way just to please their master. The two of them even learned cooking. all in order to be useful to their idol. but…” “I know. and much more. Geomdulchi carefully continued. their master.” “But he hasn’t fought for a long time. who even now surprised them.” said another Geomchi. what…” Page 81 of 159 . he’s incredible.” “Well. Indeed a man can only be assessed when he goes into battle with a strong opponent. find tasty food. “I know he’s a master swordsman. and the wolf could do nothing to avoid the sword! The disciples became spellbound when watching their master fight. “After such a long time. know which monsters dropped good loot. It was aimed perfectly. if you knew more than others you could stand in front of the master.

Learn to set aside the sword. their last words amused the master. Page 82 of 159 . your skills are bound to dull. after such a long time. he hadn’t been paying attention to his master.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung Oho-ho.” While he agreed verbally.” “Yes. in his heart he thought different. or guns in our case. after a long break became dull. “Well…I guess that’s true. Even outstanding athletes.” ************************************************************************* Many people in Fort Ohdein were conducting business. That is one of the main methods of training. To achieve our goal we must not rely on drugs. “What’s so funny. Whether to hunt as a cat or a lion will be their call.
Both sides had gathered a lot of people. the Prosperity Guild betrayed its allies. Hold down the fort. The other two guilds tried to negotiate but nothing happened. Overcome with anger The Wings of May joined an alliance with the Balkans. They had already assembled several times and tried to take down the fort. and destroy the Balkans guild. The fort was located on the border between Ledern Kingdom and the British Confederation. Page 83 of 159 .The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung “Selling supplies!” “Give everything your best. However. In the Balkans Guild. Originally. and do not give them an inch!” An alliance of guilds was assembled at Fort Ohdein. All attention was fixated on the fort. but no one could predict what would be the result. So now their forces outnumbered their enemy. Now everything had changed. and scattered. But The Wings of May Guild.” “Reflect all of their attacks. because the fort was of immense value. Prosperity Guild. The Oasis Guild consisted mainly of mercenaries who bickered about their loss. the Oasis Guild. “We have to recover what was stolen from us!” shouted the guild leader. vowed for revenge as they left the alliance. the guild master was sharpening a knife. and the Wings of May Guild were allies and they captured the fort together. Many traders passed through its gates each day and left money in the pockets of the owner of the fortress. but only suffered defeat after defeat.
The guild master of the Prosperity Guild thought of only one thing. They weren’t happy about the war. the defenders were also busy. Inside. they were desperate and recruited a lot of mercenaries with compensations three times what the Balkans Guild offered. Page 84 of 159 . Many of the mercenaries were gathered in the back of the fort.” “Second corps has gathered. Also at the fort were many defending NPCs. no one cared about their opinions. “Their army has arrived. they would lose everything.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung There was still two hours before the siege. The third force consisted of archers and mages. The Balkans Guild slowly gathered around the fortress. but in general. Therefore. victory. They supported the rear and were located on the towers.” “Fourth corps ready to go. The main force defended the walls and was dedicated to fight. Waiting for orders. The second force guarded the gate in the event of its compromise.” “The third corps is in position.” The Prosperity Guild was divided into four corps each with 3000 men. If they lost the fortress. The last corps was responsible for supplies and consisted mainly of fresh recruits.
Does anyone have any questions?” After Brine’s last words. Once the battle reaches a turning point we’ll move in. the soldiers talked. Look at all these soldiers.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung “As expected. But many soldiers actually gathered not just for money but for the lull of battle. “They’re coming. “This is a rare sight. 5 more gold per kill! And 20 gold if they stayed alive! True. the last two only applied if they won.” Wizards and archers took position. our job is to wait.” “Look at that. drums and horns sounded.” “So that means we all have a higher chance of dying?” As they waited.” “Since there are so many people. there was only the sound of clanking armor and weapons. Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! There somewhere behind the walls of the fortress. Page 85 of 159 . one of the generals of the Prosperity Guild. Mercenaries checked their weapons and slowly gazed at the walls. The Prosperity guild promised each of them 10 gold for participating. the battle will be fierce…” “The Balkans have a grudge against everyone defending the castle and that includes us. while below them stood the mercenaries. A flying Wizard.
there was none equal to the knights. Theodore was an experienced soldier who had faced many battles. hearing the sounds of drums and horns shouted loudly and happily shook arms. It appeared he was making a butterfly from a branch cut from a tree in the fort. Everyone gets scared their first time. defend the fort against the Balkans!” “The enemy is coming!” “That’s it. are you making something. The Iron Cross Knights. a doll?” Theodore leaned over and looked closer at what he was making. “Iron Cross Knights. wait. nevertheless. it has begun!” Mercenaries jumped from their seats and gave a shout. and they were fighting to retake the fort.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung The ground started to shake as a large number of people marched.” he said confidently. looking around. They were a source of terror to their invaders. Theodore went up and approached him. They were all excited but there was one man who continued to sit. Don’t worry. “Yes. Now the situation changed. don’t give in to the invaders!” The mercenaries. “It looks like you’re scared. “Oh it’s starting?” the bewildered newcomer said. So he tried to calm newcomers to demonstrate his superiority. “Urrraaaaa!” “Kill them all!” “Defend the fort. Page 86 of 159 . it’s nothing.
Ballistae and trebuchets rained boulders and iron shells upon friends and foes. The invading troops headed to the Training Hall. and waited for the enemy's attack. So far. everyone knew that there was nowhere to run. In retaliation. Everything would be decided in the second wave and that would be when the knights would enter. It was an incredible and menacing sight. Almost a third of their archers and NPCs were killed in combat. after much fighting their forces seemed equal. cut the throats of magicians. everyone in the castle could feel the tremors they made. The mercenary troops under Brine joined the battle 4 hours later. please stay where you are. Their enemy was just ahead. all attempts on the fort were unsuccessful because of its strong defence. which was located next to the mercenary forces under Brine. However. Page 87 of 159 . they finally gained enough strength to become a threat. But now. The Prosperity Guild had no regrets about spending money to protect Ohdein. hundreds of warriors moved in to attack. The mercenaries were at a stalemate. the attacking army was so large it looked like pebbles being thrown into an ocean. the cost of their success was paid by the scores of soldiers’ blood. some spent on siege weapons.” Even without words. therefore the soldiers menacingly brandished weapons. The walls of the castle had already fallen to the Balkans. Ladders and ropes filled the wall. “Fireball!” “Aimed shot!” The mages and archers on the walls fired at the invaders.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung The knights stood on a hill at a distance and followed the general course of the battle. fights broke out. spirits and golems were sent. mostly swords. axes and spears. it was a magnificent battle. “Everybody. Weed was among them. The guild master of the Balkan Guild shouted out: “Soldiers! Companions! Here they come! We will retake our fort!” With his words. But now. with the support of new allies and enormous amounts of money. However. All throughout the fort. Assassins having infiltrated the fort.
” “Thunder Slash!” “Triple Attack!” The three of them. A cold sweat trickled down his back. and the screams of dying people. he never took part in a siege. Even when he played Continent of Magic. Only because of his desire to return to his sense of combat did Weed decide to plunge into the bloodiest battle available.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung “This is great. “Engraving knife technique!” A fatal blow has been struck! Weed aimed at a critical point and his enemy fell lifeless to the ground. And it was great. Terrifying sounds came from all sides: the buzzing of deadly spells. Even with his eyes closed he could feel killing intent. Page 88 of 159 . but now he was personally involved. All worry gone. Time to meet your maker. When the mercenaries began to attack. “Uh… He killed Altona!” “Revenge. he only saw the enemy. Just by looking at his shoulders was enough to predict his attacks. simultaneously attacked Weed. and then counter.” He had already seen several battles for the fort on TV. It was all real. too. activating their skills. This would be his first real experience. “Oh-ho. he immediately covered his face with a wooden mask in the shape of a butterfly about to take off. Ahahaha! Power Attack!” The warrior swung his wide blade… Bam! Weed easily repelled the sword.
you could see that they weren’t even level 200. With great hesitation. the victim was their friend. If your side wins. with his armor polished. Their smiles left their faces. When skills reached the intermediate stage. Weed smiled. you will receive additional rewards. they thought Weed had died.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung Apparently. The damage he received didn’t even reach 300 points. and their faces were all shining. along with an increase in fame. there were added bonuses! In addition. his health exceeding 9000. At this point their enemy seemed like a devil. However their feeling of security vanished as Weed appeared completely unharmed. Enemies killed: 4. he was practically invincible. Weed lowered his sword and took all of the blows. you can get a title. Graham leather armor! He polished it until it shown. after examining their ability. Also. Page 89 of 159 . Bam-bam-bam! Each strike flashed light. However. and now enemy attacks were reflected into the air. “Weaker than I expected…” Weed gave his opponents a disappointed look. and finally disappeared into white mist. “Is he dead?” “Where are his items!?” Poor guys. and health gained from his fishing skill.
In addition. among the mercenaries he faced some level 250 and higher. with his armor polished and sword sharpened. but still they continued to die! Weed was not high leveled. After all. They were the real machines of death on the battlefield! Page 90 of 159 . only mercenaries. So basically. On the other hand. The three players could not withstand his attacks. but the average level of his enemies did not exceed 170. but Weed’s stats were far inflated for his level. Enemies swung swords at him and shot spells at him. and guilds fought in large battles. NPC soldiers. There wasn’t a big difference in level. Ding! Weed went to the bodies of his enemies and found 1 item. he had a significant advantage over his opponents. As quickly as he massacred his enemies. their penalty would be huge. “Kiiya!” Weed jumped from one opponent to another. A few moments later they fell dead to the ground. he picked up their loot.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung “Engraving Knife technique!” Weed attacked without hesitation. so they could not withstand him. Top players on Royal Road didn’t participate in sieges. With each passing moment his opponents lost more and more health. if they were mobbed and then killed. Those that did not care about the penalties.
and most of the conversation revolved around one player. he had long understood that it was better to fight as a party. The battle lasted all day. People that did not hesitate to use their comrades. they could not oppose him. blood was spilled at Fort Ohdein. After all. Retreat!” Weed was not afraid of soldiers at level 250. Instead they thought there were 42 masked mercenaries. However.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung “Don’t lose your head and die. They gradually became famous. Then he quietly went off to kill other enemies. And they dropped more and more things for Weed to pick up. ********************************************************************* The Geomchis finally passed level 170. “Ahhh!” “Everyone! Bring him down instead!” Many players simultaneously attacked the masked soldier. not even a single copper. and clever tricks! However. “Engraving Knife Technique!” Dishonest.” Page 91 of 159 . but like everyone else. However. Weed did not feel any remorse. sometimes they went to places that were never explored before.” “It’s the famous mug. I hate crowds of players. they had an overwhelming advantage.” “Maybe I should kill them. Here were the results of real men! They walked through the valleys and mountains in the southern kingdom of Rosenheim. Weed hid behind a strong ally until they engaged into battle. Again. they didn’t know that. and naturally. What was amazing was the fact that they started when Weed was level 180. Everybody discussed the fight. “There’s something wrong with them. reaching a total of 42 kills. whereas the Balkans Guild attacked. They laid waste to everything! Thanks to their crazy pace. there would be people who were jealous. This time the Prosperity Guild. they leveled quickly. Like a hot knife on butter he cut one opponent down after another. he fought against stronger enemies. Whirlwinds of death that left nothing. So when he approached a strong opponent. for example vampires. defended the fort. With the mercenaries on defense.
Gran smiled wickedly and drew his sword.” “To me. It turned out it was the first 5 Geomchis.” The Dwichigi Quartet! They had tried to use Weed and Mapan. they had no choice but to hide in Rosenheim. With the Cloud Guild hunting them.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung Halman and Margaux talked to each other. because they hunted people instead of monsters. but instead killed themselves. Come on. “Killing alone is no fun. They gathered only because they wanted to have fun! The Quartet blocked the road. Since then. “Yeah. it’s better to kill while having a conversation. there’s nothing more fun than killing. several months passed but their levels still haven’t increased. currently I still don’t have a breastplate. they already experienced it several times! But still they would get back together.” “Yeah. Although they were “friends”. “Flaming Sword!” Page 92 of 159 . there was always the risk of getting betrayed. It would be a burden for them to take on all 500 Geomchis so they targeted a group of 5 that was separated from the party. “Huh?” “Who are you?” The five of them had puzzled looks in their eyes.” “That’s not a bad idea. let’s go!” As always their shady business would be suggested by Gran. let’s kill them and raise our levels.” Respect and friendship were not words to describe the relationship the Quartet had. “Sounds like fun. After all.” “Let’s split the loot fairly this time. “Kekekek” “Hihihi” Levi and Halman laughed. while Levi and Grand quietly sipped beer.
Like flowing water he blocked the attack. and tried swinging. “Huh?” Compared to Gran. Bam-bam! “Hmm… Not dead yet?” Page 93 of 159 . When leveling up they learned a few techniques. he didn’t stop. Something only masters could do! The master deflected the attack another 5 times. and changing the flow of the attack causing it to miss. however the technique their master just used was thought to be useless. Tink! As their blades crashed. but that was when the master easily countered him and began to attack. his blade was deflected and the attack cut down a tree. and was hard to use. It didn’t just require technique. Somewhere he had made a serious mistake. it used up 50 mana. and rushed forward. He was using a dangerous attack that exploded on impact. the other 4 Geomchis’ eyes were even wider. “Oh…. “Who are you? A monster? Man? You’re stronger than a death knight. He had no idea it was possible to block the attack. you needed to advance quickly and calculate your position. The master asked quietly. In addition.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung Gran attacked without warning. Of course. “Ha! Idiot!” Gran’s eyes were full of triumph. Their master leisurely stepped back. so… do you drop better loot?” Gran could not say a word. the master just simply overcame the attack by deflecting it.” All the confidence Gran had disappeared. “What are you freaks?” Up to this point Gran didn’t know what to do. However. Then diverting the force. “Master!” “Watch out!” The Second and third Geomchi’s mouth opened in surprise. It was a technique that consists of first pinpointing the direction of the enemy attack and the amount of power behind it. and drew his sword.
but the Geomchis didn’t even know about this concept. In a sense they were more brutal than the Quartet. the killers quickly died.” “So…you’re not going to get revenge?” The Quartet fell in a serious predicament. “We’re in a guild now. And as always Gran came up with an idea. “These guys are monsters too?” “Students. we can’t give up on revenge. they were moving to surprise attack the rest of the Geomchis. “What happened?” “Ahh… I don’t even want to think about what happened yesterday. “No. We don’t have to search anymore!” “Look at the one on the left – oh my!” Perhaps other players when realizing that they were facing the Dwichigi Quartet would run away because they didn’t want to get a player kill status. so crime flourished. Let’s get them to help. There hadn’t been a large guild formed to police there. With lies. the Quartet managed to rally up 300 men.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung “Kiiya!” Gran due to his high health and good armor stayed alive. A few hours later the Quartet met again. Rosenheim was like a haven. they accepted the Quartet. After a variety of wounds.” Levi showed weakness. After yesterday’s events he didn’t want to face them ever again. The killers immediately contacted their friends in the guild.” “But we aren’t strong enough. The Dwichigi Quartet had joined the Jamaica Guild .” “I agree.” For the Quartet. His teammates didn’t idle. “Kill them!” Page 94 of 159 . Because the guild very badly needed strong players. now they come to us.
The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung “Wow!” The Dwichigi Quartet with the support of 300 soldiers attack the Geomchis. but the spells became concentrated and they quickly died. “Damn. they wouldn’t hesitate to rush in for an attack. use ranged attacks. we’ll at least get one of you!” Some of the students broke away from the group and rushed at the enemy. So far they had never encountered magic. “Oh my God…” “Who are they? Why did they attack us?” For the first time since they started. “Damn!” The Geomchis. Geomdulchi shouted: “Master get back!” “I see. The survivors.” “Everyone get back. Sometimes they were dying of hunger. “Ahh!” “The enemy!” Many of the Geomchis were killed in the first minutes of the surprise attack. Assassins attacked from behind and slit the throats of many. attacking from afar with a barrage of spells and arrows. If their enemy approached them. so they were caught off guard. Fall back…” Page 95 of 159 . began to block one attack after another. these guys are stronger than we thought. their faces were lodged with anger and despair. not holding back their anger. “Even if we get taken down like dogs. But the enemy stood back.” “Ice Storm!” “Lightning Bolt!” Many deadly spells flew toward the brave warriors. standing back to back. They were warned in advance about their opponents’ strengths so they had assassins sniping with crossbows. And because the Geomchis didn’t use shields their health began to decline rapidly. The massive attack dropped their health substantially. but now they were being killed by unknown players. cursed.
The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung “To where?” “Into the woods! Everyone fall back into the forest.” “…Almost half of us have died. But now they were tired.” “Yes sir. We’ll have more cover there. “Look! They’re coming!” While they rested their pursuers got closer. In a wedge type formation. “How did they find us?” “Apparently they have some thieves or hunters. Or will we fight!” “Sir. and they were still constantly receiving ranged attacks..” The Geomchis sighed. They had to run deeper into the forest. they fended off most arrows. they were poor and didn’t have many.” “We’re listening. samchi. As martial artists they could not cover their tracks. However. they managed to escape into the forest. Master. Master. “Geomdulchi. but could not oppose the magic.” The first and second swords went on to create an opening..” “Should we split up so that half of us can survive. and everyone else!” “Yes. we are men!” “Let’s show those bastards what we’re made of!” Page 96 of 159 . all they could do now was rest and bandage their wounds.” The Geomchis were gripped with frustration.” “Follow me. They can track us. “We’re alive!” “How many of us are left?” “A little more than 260. After suffering heavy losses.
Master!” “We’re sorry. The number of enemies and their level cannot serve as an excuse. using the forest. but in swordsmanship he had no equal! Once upon a time. Their enemies were using magic and even their priests were treated. But as they watched him fight. However. Usually it was in the nature of Ahn Hyun-Do to stay silent but then he slowly said.” “But there were too many enemies!” “No. their master came out.” “He called himself Gran. The students and instructors were furious! To them Ahn Hyun-Do was their role model. in their final moments of life. their wounds were very heavy. their doubts dissipated. there was dead silence. “Master!” Jeong Il-Hoon. starting with the weakest. “It’s been 30 years. Ma San Bohm. until only the instructors were left. to die and be humiliated caused them to rage. live on!” When their health reached 0.he had some eccentricities. they hid and used surprise attacks. Yes . But now don’t you think Royal Road has become more interesting?” “Yes Master!” Page 97 of 159 . “He killed me…. Lee Ying-Up and all the pupils were so tensed that their breath trembled. They didn’t run.” “…?” “I told Jean that it had been 30 years since I’ve lost a fight. But Hyun-Do looking at their angry faces laughed.” “…. “…” In the dojo. Choi Jeong-Beom. before coming to the school. the students began to die. only their master survived. The students and instructors were focused on one capsule. Their idol. In the end. The one where their master lay. they would look at the master. Gradually.” Everyone finally exhaled. “Uhh.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung Now the Geomchis drastically changed their strategy. And now after some time Ahn Hyun-Do. and then slit my throat. they doubted his skill when they heard about it. Ile-hoon.
The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung The students and instructors.” “We won. but with no less pleasure they enjoyed splitting the loot. With lies. with just a few days you could get valuable weapons and armor that took months to obtain. “It’s perfect. After all. Margaux. “Let’s see what they left. Gran. Halman.” Gran and the other members of the Quartet celebrated their victory. He walked up to the blackboard and began to write in chalk the names. Levi and the Jamaica guild And in front of each name he wrote – enemies! He said with a smile. caught up in the answer instinctively. “Ohh! It’s true!” “I like intense fights!” “Let’s repay their offence. They loved the taste of killing. “Nothing…” Page 98 of 159 . a hundredfold. they got the Jamaica Guild to help and destroy the Geomchis. We are like real soldiers and we should take on everything with all of our heart!” The instructors and trainees became caught up. Now they went over dead bodies to divide the loot. Ahn Hyun-Do clenched his fist.” With greedy looks Halman and Margaux were to first to search. But soon their faces contorted in surprise. “Don’t erase.” However they froze as their master went up to do something.
The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung “No! It can’t be!” “There’s nothing valuable!” “This is ridiculous, look again!” Gran and Levi carefully searched for items. However, they only found several swords in urgent need of repair and barley bread, lots of barley bread.
Chapter 7: Dungeon Hunting
“It's time to talk about the latest news on the continent of Versailles. We will introduce you to the events that occurred in Royal Road. And today we have a guest in the studio, you all know him, it's Joo-wan. How are you!?” “Hello! Hye-min, your smile today is even more charming.” “Ho, ho, you already managed to come, no need to bother with compliments. Apparently, there is some important news today, right?” “Yes, you're correct. Not that important, except your preference in taste, because I sense that in the morning you ate finely roasted pork...” “Oh, what did you say? In the morning, roasted pork tastes best. But do I really smell?”
Joo-wan and Shin Hye-min. Although they quarrel and say random things at times, they are a pair of young reporters of news for the gaming channel, KMC Media. Lee Hyun slowly ate as he watched the news program. 'Often they are blunt, but it's better than CTS Media.' Yes, the eternal problem of time management: seriously making profit, it's hard to stay up to date with all of the events in the game. CTS Media invited to broadcast the most beautiful and famous actors, but they did not have the most important thing, innovation. In each episode, the actors focused on their image and boasted about their characters, which greatly annoyed the audience. Sometimes the show went so far off-field that it was unclear what they were talking about.
Compared to them, the news on KMC Media was much more convenient to watch. The excellently organized collection of information allows them to be surprisingly quick to recognize, and summarize
Page 99 of 159
The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung main events in their news programs. The huge size of the Versailles continent gathered the vast number of players who to some extent, wanted to be up to date on the game.
“Now you will hear some wonderful news. Take a break from other issues for a few minutes. Now, at last in the Kingdom of Haven, the player Ray Bard received level 370, which was called the 'impenetrable wall.'” “Wow! Superb!” “Remember that Ray Bard is one of the leaders ranking among the highest-level players, and certainly you know of the nickname 'The Black Knight.' Inside the tower, the soldier finally reached level 370. The highest level in the game! Now, let's see how this happened.” Warriors of the tower. A gathering place for the strongest warriors of Royal Road to compete. A knight in black armor wielding a black sword was fighting against a fierce barbarian. The barbarian, screaming in a fit of rage, inflicted a terrible blow with his two-handed sword. However, using foot techniques, the black knight easily avoided and deflected the enemy attacks. The speed of high-level players defies description. Blades flashed with unimaginable speed. And when you take into account their equipment, you would have thought that it was a battle between a red and a black dragon. Still, the winner was immediately clear: the black knight was playing with his opponent! In the end, the dark player won the battle. “You just said that the player Ray Bard won the fight and become the highest-level player in the game! Thanks to the victory over the warriors who guarded the tower, he reached level 370. I also would like to add that the technique which Ray Bard used in this fight has never been seen or used before!” “Oh, ho, ho. Amazing!” Joo-wan was waving his arms and cried about. “However, Ray Bard must have been pushed, to have revealed such skills and technique?” “What amazing insight! That's correct; Ray Bard is from the guild, Hermes. And as you may recall from our earlier news, Hermes took on the previous ruler of the kingdom of Haven, Iluina, and announced that they have chosen the path of a military dictatorship.” “That is, you mean to say that Haven declared war on all of the United Kingdoms?” “Yes. Apparently their recruitment of more forces boosted their confidence.” “Moreover, they have Ray Bard.” “Exactly that! Although the leader of the guild is a different player, Ray Bard is in fact the face of Hermes. Thus, from the showing of his increase in level from the tower's warriors, Ray Bard announced to the world the supremacy of his guild.”

The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung Later on, the news turned to other matters. They mentioned that somewhere far off, some guilds started a war against a powerful wizard in a newly discovered cave. On the mainland of Versailles, something was becoming commonplace: someone lost their items due to the outbreak of tornadoes and earthquakes. So if you are going to an unfamiliar area, you must be careful and try to gather more information to avoid the maelstrom. 'Level 370....' The numbers refused to leave Lee Hyun's mind. In the Continent of Magic, he was the best player! However, even then, Lee Hyun did not realize the true value of that nickname. He only played for fun, slowly beating monsters and almost never talked to other players. When he gathered an especially numerous amount of items, he would visit a town and then sell them. Hence, the nickname of the 'Best' had a hollow ring to him. It was only when he decided to sell his character that he came to the realization of such a title! 'Ray Bard... if you sell your account, how huge an amount of money will you make!?' This was especially so, as the number of players in the Continent of Magic is not comparable to Royal Road. Over one hundred million people play Royal Road! Office workers, freelancers and many others used the game as a vacation spot. It is so popular! While he improved his fishing skills, Weed saw many people like this. They came to the river Bensa to relax, away from family or work. Having picnics or sunbathing under the hot sun. Even if only level 50, their mood did not spoil. The players do not hunt monsters for loot; instead, they just bought it all at once in the shops with real money. Often, they did so just to show off in front of their friends, as if they had come on vacation to a resort. In general, that was not far from the truth. With Royal Road, you did not have to take a leave of work for a week, or miss a weekend, as long as you have a capsule in your home. Lee Hyun did not blame these players. On the contrary, he considered them as a different form of clientele. While there are such people in the game, anyone can make a little more. Lee Hyun's thoughts all came back to Ray Bard. Everyone, from junior office workers and ending with company presidents played in Royal Road, so the cost of the highest-level character would be astronomical! However, in the case of Ray Bard, if he is not a fool, it is unlikely he would sell his account. Royal Road has only recently begun its triumphant run throughout the Earth, and according to experts, its popularity will last for at least another 10 years. So selling a character, the value of which will still grow further, would not just set you back in the game, it would also be a great folly.

I wouldn't be surprised if something amazingoccurred at this very moment. materials and time. he would definitely have a lot to say.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung “Yes.. so have you interviewed him? After all. Lee Hyun found it hard to believe that someone else had mastered all three of these skills to the intermediate level.. it is just a long and tedious process.” “Of course there is. If you talk about all the events that have occurred on the mainland.. if you use good materials you can quickly raise their level. do you like craft skills?” “Hmm. if you find a player who has mastered those three skills to the intermediate level.' But even through the use of trade.. the development of all those skills. 'Well for cooking.. even 24 hours would not be enough. Perhaps.” “No.” “Really? Then don't hold out on us and quickly share something new!” “Hye-min..” “Er.” “And if you would go into details. Unfortunately. So when he heard the news about another player doing this. a player has reached the intermediate level of Tailoring. you still need to spend a huge amount of effort... Though.” “Very good.. With tailoring and blacksmithing. Just recently. blacksmithing and cooking – someone got them all up to intermediate?' Lee Hyun went down that road.. 'Tailoring.. I like passionate people who can create something new with their own hands..” “I don't believe it! On Joo-wan couldn't get an interview?” Page 102 of 159 . and Blacksmithing. we found out about it too late... so he knew how hard it was to develop these skills to intermediate. yes I do.. Shin Hye-min made a pretty expression and eagerly asked “Oh.. thank you On Joo-wan.” “Wow! That's great!” Lee Hyun bowed in astonishment. Cooking. thanks to trade.. Do you have any more news to report? You talked quite a bit about the continent of Versailles. I'm raising the level of skills twice as fast. he could not believe his ears. Then you'll definitely enjoy this news. it is possible that player did the same.
Shin Hye-min and On Joo-wan spurred the interest by adding sharp comments. “Look Hye-min! Clothes made from prismatic cloth. it was. I was too late. The clothes he sold at the auction gained a lot of attention and was made into a video. I couldn't believe it. After the completion of the video. 'Yes. and to be honest.. In a shop you can see a player arguing with the owner. Page 103 of 159 . Buildings made in the style of the Renaissance. Only when the site posted a few things that he did.. made through intermediate tailoring. that's Mapan. A merchant wearing a suit offered for sale clothes that add seven different attributes. Players were excited. the images of the items sold by Mapan appeared.. but. Even some monsters would hesitate in attacking it with their sword.. crying out and colliding with each other for the desired items. Lee Hyun knew the merchant auctioneer. So the player that raised all three skills to intermediate. including the price it was sold for.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung “Yeah. I rushed to interview him.' He thought that the recording of the auction they showed on TV was excellent. Now it's displayed here on the screen. Defense: 55 A tunic of prismatic cloth stitched by a mid-level master. hearing of such a player. Rare Tunic made from prismatic cloth Durability: 110/110.' On Joo-wan was speaking about Lee Hyun. Interestingly. and many players wandering the streets as well as horses pulling carts. as well as the item description. The unknown player finally made clothes from prismatic fabric – a fabric of 1st class quality if you didn't know – and he disappeared into an unknown direction. the auction was taking place. Far ahead you could see the Colosseum.. A lot of players gathered around the dealer in hope of buying something good. would he have fainted if only he know that Lee Hyun's fishing and sculptural skill was intermediate as well? 'Well I was not conducting the auction. The master has put his soul in this piece of cloth. I was busy working on another story at the time. lots of two and three-story buildings buried in the midst of green gardens. With it. “This is amazing!" On Joo-wan enviously pointed at the monitor behind him. The price grew rapidly.” The video screen of the studio was replaced with a major medieval city. and in the middle of the spacious square. Majestic temples and high towers.
Additional glory 100 . do you have anything else?” Page 104 of 159 . .Damage from arrows reduced by 85%.Granted 20% probability that lightning spells do no damage. When he appears. due to the fact that players start to follow you. it has seven additional effects! With simple items. More people become interested in you and thus buy items.Blunt weapons cannot inflict a critical hit on you.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung Requirements: Level 150 Strength: 80 Effects: . if you sell stuff. . and all of them are beneficial! For unique items. Lee Hyun could only get a single unit. On Joo-wan. but it's time to move on to the next story. will hasten to interview him. On Joowan. I promise you that. you have to be prepared for the appearance of both pros and cons in your life. however. but often they are useless. there may be two or three randomized effects. wherever he may be. “Aww! It's a pity that we could not get an interview. In addition. the item has incredibly high durability.Fire does not affect the durability of the garment. As with beautiful sculptures in the line of work of a sculptor. it's a plus. .Dexterity +10 Dexterity: 80 Thanks the development of skills through trade. For example. when it is seven. That is why Lee Hyun had asked Mapan to hold the auction for him. But with this. The defense is also far superior to any other items made of good fabric. they naturally appear and interfere with hunting and quests. When you become famous. “After the auction.Art increased by 10 . . things do not always turn out that good as often with tailors. then I. the player did not return.” Lee Hyun glared at this narcissistic twit.
I'm sure a lot of traders and hunters will continue to visit the castle. had turned off the TV. He took a shower and went to lie back in the capsule. they divided their forces and were successfully able to defend themselves throughout the day. Lee Hyun logged into Royal Road. the entrance. The shot gave a bird's-eye view of the fierce battle between the guilds for Odhein fortress. maybe we should visit the Kingdom of Haven? What do you think?” “Yeah. Somehow. and therefore. it is only natural that the fortress will be at peace. Finally. It was all thanks to the fact that inside the fortress.” Page 105 of 159 . there is no force in the region that could fight on equal terms with the Guild Prosperity. The Guild Prosperity defended the fort from the attempted invasion of the Guild Balkan.” “It can't be helped. I can hear the noise even now from the disgruntled.” “They also say that the number of players who visit the Kingdom of Haven have increased several times. Yet even with this price increase. And it was a success. But no such luck. As of this moment. Apparently. Once the siege was over..” Lee Hyun. A grand battle unfolded before the audience.. who had been watching the battle on the screen with interest. the Guild Prosperity.” “Indeed.” The screen changed once again.” “Hmm. “In the battle involved. I would like to talk about the siege of Fort Odhein. It slightly seemed that the resistance was going to break. let's see the video of the battle. that Hermes guild is lucky. The prices will increase by 70% due to the costs of the military operations and the repairs from the defense. and the defenders slowly had to recede. a magician tried to make a recording as he flew across the sky.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung “Yes. It can be assumed that for some time. Now. in an attempt to capture the entire scale of the battle. so now everyone was trying to catch up. Wave after wave of attacks hit the walls of the fortress.. until the siege couldn't last. ordinary players could not get inside the walls of the fortress. A lot of people were wandering around the area. “Did you hear? They say that the player Ray Bard hit level 370!” “Yeah. The result of the battle was that the defenders won. During the siege. The taxes are set by those who own Odhein. gaining another victory. He was still inside the walls of Odhein fortress. went back to the same place. that would be interesting. he immediately left the game.
Weed now had a level of 230. The whole process of the game was based on a bunch of features and the fighting techniques of a player. there were a lot of shops that sold weapons and armor. He was revered as a king.” “Paying for a long distance player! Mage or archer!” “Buying a sword that is suitable for a player at level 210! Additional effects as well!” The area was noisy again. chatting and trading. as you can see. Therefore. and therefore. the more powerful your enemies become and more difficult will be the monsters. there was no separate food store. seasonings. they are immediately downloaded to millions of gamers. However. he did not pay attention to the items that could be useful in battle. “What are you looking for?” “I need items.” “Good. the higher your skill. the game has become a world where they really lived. high-level players garner great interest among ordinary players. “Looking for a priest. herbs and other products were sold at the same place. The players who were discussing Ray Bard said their farewells and went about their own businesses as Weed went to one of the retail stores. the latest news of Royal Road. He happily greeted the visitor. Thanks to killing many players in the battle. lost experience and were hurrying themselves to catch up. because the further you go. herbs. Of course. Here are some items. After the battle. Just like in all other online games. with an ugly scar on his face that might have been the result of the last battle of the fortress. Above level 170. Weed threw the ten points he received from the levels to dexterity as he entered the shop. food. Page 106 of 159 . In the last few months. gathering in groups. or even world-wide celebrity! If there are clips from his battles. Weed became far too enthused with the development of his artisan skills. many players died and in contrast. Therefore. It was important for people to be able to demonstrate their skill in combining abilities in order to fight against your opponent. medicines and herbs. a lot of players returned to the normal lifestyles. the less consistent with the natural laws of battle in the real word. and bandages. Ray Bard has also become a symbol of success for such people. For them. he was able to get two new levels.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung Many players discussed with interest. But the game was fun to go into battles.” Unlike other cities or castles. The shopkeeper was a strong type of NPC. But not everyone was as lucky.

Weed bought 200 pieces of each herb. and some were even of very rare species. This bloody battle for Odhein was not in vain. His direction lay to the nearest cave. but in honor of the victory. a whetstone.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung Red herb Zareta Expentable: 2 silver A herb that helps healing wounds. bandages and food. there were a lot of herbs in this shop. it increases the rate of mana regeneration. he left the walls of Odhein.

be ready to attack!” By Sollon's orders. Firestorm!” A properly planned ambush had borne its first fruits. Wall of Fire!” “Mother Earth! Stop the unworthy that trample thy space. he just wants to show off in front.' 'That's not all. “Archers! Volley!” The few archers let out a volume of fire that prevented the enemy from closing in on them..” “Well done. which further slowed the enemy's movement. The archers who saw the farthest provided the information on the force.. After two magical attacks and volleys. pure flame of rage. the Basra monsters quickly weakened.. Ack!” “Hot! My throat!” But the battle was not yet over. His voice was filled with tension and excitement.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung “Return quickly. the monsters' health had decreased by more than 70%. Batu.. “Flames of my anger. The thief Batu was being pursued by a detachment of enemy. the squad just clicked their tongues. and get yourselves ready!” Sollon screamed. Everyone. this battle involved close-combat. Sollon had the group begin a second series of attacks. reflect my feelings and become a wall in the way of my enemies. But that was only the beginning.. the magicians lined up and prepared spells. During this time. 'The guy's quite mad. “Dance of Death!” Page 108 of 159 . They then began to call out consistently. Besides wizards. Under fire from many spells. and was approaching the position. “The enemy is coming!” “More than 40 people.' However. this was the time to remain completely empty of thought. Mud!” The cave floor became slippery and the Basra soldiers began to fall as the wall of fire rolled onto them! “AWWW. the magicians prepared new spells and again did battle.. The monsters were slowly pushed back. “Attack! Billow out. Yet. Some of the players used stun arrows.
Like a butterfly she flit between opponents and attacked the men of Basra. Zephyr and Hwaryung put all the opponents to rest. While all stood and stared in awe at Hwaryung. a girl flashed by with two daggers. Vividly.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung Amongst the fighting warriors. Sollon and the wizards immediately forgot about the battle and admired her movements. Sollon's squad had become a fan of this amazing beauty in no time at all. only to leave them captive with a sweep of his Hades throw. it was at me!” “Gyaaaa!” Magicians threw off their mantles and went to blows with each other. Zephyr did battle with the monsters. Page 109 of 159 . In addition to it being a dance. You got 3. After all of the attacks of the squad. The dance transformed Hwaryung from a beautiful girl into a beautiful goddess.” When Hwaryung began her dance. Zephyr. the Basra monsters had almost no health. She just winked at me. Squad Leader Sollon had to separate them and bring back discipline. “Iron Fishing!” He used the iron line to wound and confound the enemy. but the beauty of the girl had captivated his heart. hold on!” “Woah. enemies got terrible wounds. not at you. So after a while. she attracted the attention of males with her looks and graceful dance moves! It was Hwaryung! Where Hwaryung flashed through with her dance. another newcomer to the squad. he attacked with lightning movement as the lure was hooked on them and he threw them to Hades. 'Bubi-Bubi' is also a battle dance. the militant fisherman. “Hwaryung.49% experience.” “No. “Lure!” Under the effect of his ability the monsters retreated from Basra. as Zephyr threw the fishing line to lure more captives.” “Awesome. When he approached a few enemies. “Beautiful.
and she was left to fight for herself. remember. he kept applying gentle hints and she finally decided to travel independently. and bad where you get little experience." Almost all of the most attractive dungeons in Royal Road were in the possession of a guild. and told her: “I saw a number of butterflies that have besotted me as they flew in front of my eyes. This was not the first time she heard a praise similar to Sollon. the Mavros guild participated in the battle of Fort Odhein. they would not only have to fight the Mavros guild. In general. You should be proud of your dance. After Mapan established links to all the major cities of the kingdom. Sollon did not want to let her go! Page 110 of 159 . Hwaryung. But the most beautiful one of all now stands before me. she happened to be in Sollon's squad. So a few days later. The area around the fort was filled with different dungeons. And so it happened. he could travel safer and no longer needed Hwaryung's protection. you can always get a lot of experience. Another reason why the Odhein fortress attracted so much attention from the various guilds. small local battles occurred. I told you this before. overly strong monsters. “Oh. So if you join us. For the right to constantly catch the monsters and kill the boss in front of the cave. Gradually. the owner of the dungeon accrues an additional 30% experience from killing the monsters! Although. our guild has the Basra cave. and most of the monsters in those gave a lot of experience per kill. her dancing started to attract the attention of other players and sometime later they invited her to their group.” “No. you can find good hunting areas like Odhein. thus raising levels. she went to the Basra instance.5% experience. Don't be shy. and worthless drops. For example. battling for a dungeon is very rare because of the complexly intricate relationships between all the guilds in Royal Road. Hwaryung. Then if someone tried to take possession of the dungeon. and she remembered and knew what was coming next. I am in the Guild Mavaros.” Yet she said nothing.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung In the one fight. she was satisfied. which won them the possession of the dungeon Basra. As a result. sick!” Hwaryung muttered unhappily to herself. on the side of Prosperity. Sollon and each member of his squad got 3. a few days of exploring the United Kingdoms of Briton. On the mainland of Versailles. the monsters gave a lot of experience. “Ah. After all. Sollon went to Hwaryung and with a sugary-sweet voice. The location was great. Only now did it become difficult. (instance = dungeon/event).” “I want nothing like that. Hunting. but other allies of Prosperity.
The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung Hwaryung loved to chat with new and interesting people. So as of this moment. the squad didn't even have to move. “Sure!” Page 111 of 159 . other teams would take only two or three mages in the cave. Sollon then changed tactics and decided to speak again. no. the archers join the fray. bind their feet. they waited until the magicians could recover mana and restart all over. but because her dancing was very beautiful. This was not because they were tired of getting experience points. A squad of archers and wizards! First to enter battle were the mages. and she liked the guy. they just waited till their thief. The only consolation was that she managed to find common ground with the other newcomer in the squad. In general. Batu would lure a new group of enemies into an ambush. and he even listened to her when she spoke.” All would shun Hwaryung. wasting time by talking or even strike a critical blow with magic and specifically take Hwaryung away. no one complained. Hwaryung and Zephyr. Sollon had them take a break. though he was much younger than her. In general. but because the Mavros guild had a big impact on them.” Sollon's squad fought the monsters of Basra. battle. They shell the monsters and slow down the movements as they wait for the mages' next attack. If Hwaryung joined with a different group. “If you leave the squad Hwaryung. rest. Usually. she always found people like Sollon. The cave was full of monsters. Then towards the end of the battle. rest. in Sollon's group. he behaved like a little shit. Zephyr. As they regain mana and begin to produce new spells. the number of magicians were 8! Battle. the last monster dropped silver armor!” “Woah!” “You know what. he would try his best to stop the hunt. as they had to work in a seriously confined space. zigzag!” “Sylph. you will have to drop the thought of hunting with my guild. They often talked. After each fight with the monsters. “Lightning. Wedging himself inside the party. However. comes the melee. She had to hunt in Sollon's squad. “Look. everything was planned out and kept the magicians attacking. who use spells to greatly reduce the opponents' health. let's give them to Hwaryung?” Sollom exclaimed with excitement.
“Of course.” Hwaryung just recently remembered how she traveled with Mapan. shouldn't you gain more levels? First you need to level up. Like everyone else..” “Right. who worry about development of skills. In Basra cave. but only on the outside. and defended the cart loaded with goods. there are people like you Hwaryung. “If everything goes the way it has. enter into a strong group and get experience” “But in this case. and we do not use our abilities. improve. Hwaryung received her experience points. right?” “Huh?” A lack of understanding spread on Davron's face. she asked. So when she saw the surprised look on Davron.. then give it.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung “If that is what Sollon decides. and then on reflection. to.. she asked another question.” The players expressed joy in support of the decision of the party leader. but in this case. she turned to one of the soldiers of the squad. And?” “And we are hunting in a squad.. we get new levels.. Now we have to give all of the best things to her?' But no matter how irritated they were. “What about our skills?” “Well we need them. we will eventually become weaker than the other players without developing our abilities. Davron.' 'Damn! And it was my turn to pick up an item.. 'That's the same thing as before with the dancing broad. Sometimes she had to dance for several hours and significantly improve technique. 'My experience is growing. the players still remained in Sollon's group. they were indignant. uh. we won’t gain in strength. she came out very discontent at the end.' 'Hrm.. Deep down. Page 112 of 159 ..” It was noticeable that Hwaryung was very worried. it was difficult to find another party like this where they can receive such a lot of experience.. by dancing. but since most of the work was carried out by the mages. but our abilities do not grow. but when can I hunt?' In her doubt. and Davron then asked in surprise.
It was all quiet and very haste-less fights. some were creating new ones. Everyone tried to increase their level as quickly as possible without paying a single bit of attention on their techniques. what made you make that choice. monsters not only granted plentiful experience but dropped decent loot..A free spot in a party. And all of them were hanging around the dungeon entrance. even if many. without increasing defense and stamina. then for the remainder. they do not receive damage and therefore their growth in levels. Cheaper than in stores! Batch purchases are welcome! Weed. Therefore its entrance was always crowded with players. was located close to the kingdom's capital. was watching players form parties. In a battle.Do you want to join a party? Quietly standing Weed was approached by a few people accompanying a warrior with white plumage on his hat. Some were joining the already existing parties. . they only gain experience. Not waiting for an answer he continued: Page 113 of 159 . hrm. all was not as rosy. . Though no one dared to enter it alone which was way too dangerous.” Sollon's squad perfectly fitted Davron's statement. In cave of Basra. then you can gradually develop in skill. . Anyone willing to join? We have 30 people and promise a fast hunt. who was the one to ask the question. The situation is exacerbated by the fact that the party only fights against weak enemies. Hwaryung? First you need to quickly increase. All the hunting you have been doing.Looking for a skilled warrior. Chapter 8: Weed’s Hunt Wing Dungeon of Basra! A place filled by numerous monsters. it was of no use to the squad.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung “So everybody does this? Right?” “Of course. But for magicians.. make them glass cannons.Selling healing herbs. who just approached the cave of Basra. Since wizards are trained for attack power. .
.Huh? . Weed headed into the cave." .I'll manage myself. weapons and armor of The British Confederation. Weed though slowly shook his head. Costs 800 gold. trying not to interfere with hunting parties too much. but I'm not looking for group. . but their extremely annoying ability to steal items. Not so much his looks as his equipment. want to hunt together? Just the fact of them being from Mavros Guild would mean a positive response from any other player. every next one having stronger monsters than the previous. But he had to refuse due to being too busy.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung . In the cave of Basra players were hunting from level 120 and up to 300. we are from Mavros Guild.Sorry. player would not only lose experience but 3-4 times more items than usual. Therefore it took a certain amount of resolve to hunt in this dungeon. if you die . My name is Vintich. Page 114 of 159 . items for level 180 and above. As a result. In short. .Excuse me. The dungeon had four floors.. "Duke's helmet." Weed carefully slipped through 1st and 2nd floors.. "Gotta be careful if I don't want to become a pincushion after appearing too suddenly. As far as Weed knew.they rob you.Our group has 15 people. Everyone is of level 170 or higher. "He said it's on the 3rd floor. maybe you would join us? Weed slowly examined the man with the plumage. However. after dying. Followed by confused stares.. which he used to purchase a title and form a trading group under his name. Sometimes they would even go so far as to take your equipped armor." Once Weed decided to hunt. But it was not monster's strength that was driving off lone players. after selling items in the auction the merchant raised his level quite a bit and earned a lot of money. what are your level and profession? I see you have a sword so you must be some kind of fighter and one of our spots just got free. first thing he did was contacting Mapan. thieves of Basra were dropping good items. So how about it. so it was never empty.
Weed wasn't going to join any parties. Page 115 of 159 . And we haven't hunted together yet. -I see! Then there's no problem! And as if showing his good will he continued: . His name is Weed.I decided to hunt and so I stopped by. Weed waited for the fight to finish and approached her. You got a problem? Hwaryung's reply somewhat calmed Sollon. Gracefully dancing and striking monsters down. -Oh! That's how it is! Not quite satisfied with that explanation.We were introduced by a common friend.This is my friend. Hwaryung warmly welcomed Weed as she was just starting to get bored. He just came to say hello and invite Hwaryung to go hunting with him. long time no see. . Weed easily found Hwaryung on the 3rd floor of the dungeon.Hwaryung exclaimed excitedly. Join us! . but it must be hard to hunt alone with it. Mapan told where he could find Hwaryung. who's this man? . .Yeah. Hwaryung.Hey. all the petty little soul of the mage was clearly visible on his face.So you're friends? Or lovers even? And how long have you been hunting together? . Actually. that girl was hard to miss. She was hunting with a large party in the very centre of the dungeon. It was then that Weed decided to come to caves of Basra to visit his friend.Asked Sollon after inspecting Weed from head to toe. He's a sculptor.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung Instead. However he could not just leave after seeing the eager expression on her face. The way he said it.Oh! Weed? Why are you here? .Weed. . Weed. But then a player in a blue robe approached them from the depth of the cave.So. maybe you will join our party? I don't have anything against your profession. . Hwaryung replied: . Sollon continued throwing suspicious glances: . Barely holding her anger.
Not like I have to tell you that. Weed recalled that he as well increased his Charisma attribute using belt of Deykram. However because of her profession. pretending that nothing's happening. Even most beautiful women who prefer not to use makeup will try to take the most advantageous position according to lighting. Besides basic attributes. Certainly under constant supervision of lingering nearby Sollon. Weed openly stated: . Knowing that Weed was a sculptor..You are quite popular. just in case. Usually it took a keen eye to see the difference. Having grasped the situation. but I still did. Instead Weed got plenty of time to talk to Hwaryung on various topics. It was natural that initial in-game appearance was gradually changing.. he realized that he just had nothing to do.. It can be said that some kind of "Glamour" appears..Exactly. . cuter face. . Hwaryung. "I see.My profession is dancer.. Sollon wasn't giving him a chance to join the fight. Brighter eyes." This proved that the profession dancer isn't as simple as he used to think.That's not it. And also there's an "Appearance" attribute. shiny skin. My real face is somewhat plainer. Page 116 of 159 . most of my efforts are spent on increasing Charisma and Appearance attributes..And then that "Appearance" attribute is.said Hwaryung with a smile. But that only applies to dancers. If you were to pay more attention to the woman.. with an increase in charisma beauty increases. you'll notice that it's not true.Charisma and Appearance? . so that’s what it does. claiming that her looks do not depend on lighting. Therefore I have high Charisma attribute. in Hwaryung's case changes were much more significant.And as I'm a dancer. .The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung After joining the party and finishing one battle. .Well. .Yeah.. that's what comes to mind first.Then. Improved stature. Now it was clear why Sollon fell for Hwaryung so hard. . . . one has to improve something new. . more elegant curves.
repair skill. Besides. the only times he got to use it was immediately before battles. Therefore. Finally! He was waiting for this moment. say. until it started to shine. If you spend it . In his mind he compared beautiful girls to hippos feeding on money. "Well. Well. when sharpening weapons for himself and his party mates. . He wasn't able to use it as often as. And Weed was one! "Woman equals money.you get love in return. Party members started to log out one by one." Weed had some twisted view on the matter. so it's time to start?" To begin with he took out a whetstone and sharpened his sword. Page 117 of 159 . That is a rule! But every rule has exceptions. next. Shiiing-shiiing! You have sharpened the sword! Attack power increased by 14%. Thanks for the hard work. if it was raining or he wasn't hunting sharpening effect would vanishing quickly. Weed pulled out a soft cloth and thoroughly polished his armor.... let's meet again tomorrow. Relationship with any woman revolves around money. I don't want a relationship like that. Weed tightened his grip on the sword in anxiety..The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung Men are week for beautiful women.Ugh! Today was a really hard day. After 12 hours of hunting Sollon said: .Done. His sword sharpening skill was at intermediate 4th level.
you wouldn't be accepted in a party in most cases.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung You polished armor! Defence increased by 16%. under the influence of its aroma. There was only soft white shrimp meat left on the stick and it was all ready to be swallowed by Weed. Strong and delicious. greatly benefiting party's strength. Nothing beats seafood when it comes to increasing Vitality and Life. Weed opened his mouth wide in anticipation. Weed opted for a dish made of shrimps. with a romantic name "Sea flowers". These two skills. but much to his surprise in Odein stronghold he managed to buy it cheaper than in Rosenheim Kingdom. He even gave the dish a name: "Angel-shrimp from heaven"! He couldn't think of a more fitting name... No one would be able to endure its call. but its effect was good. . it acquired a golden tint and was easy to remove. And shrimps proved to be best among seafood! To enhance dish's effect even further Weed prepared sweet maple syrup sauce and a salad out of potato. usually were used by blacksmiths after being accepted into a party. Armor polishing was very similar to polishing. The aroma was driving him crazy. His will struggled with his urges. Page 118 of 159 . He slowly peeled the shell off. but because of it being conveniently located right on one of the major trade routes. There weren't many opportunities to use it for prolonged periods. His mouth wanted to take a bite. but hands didn't want to let go. Especially because it wasn't just a simple shrimp. Weed saw the glow of divine wings around the shrimp. Usually seafood in the game was quite expensive.Now food. after cooking. Chance to dodge increased by 2%. Weed applied his sculpturing mastery to emphasize its beauty. After slowly dipping shrimp in syrup sauce. If you were a blacksmith. but didn't raise these skills for some reason. lettuce and béchamel. And not just because of absence of taxes.
I thought you logged out.. staring intently at the shrimp.Eh. And let out another gulp. Deafening gulp broke Weed's concentration at the crucial point. ..If you want. When all the party members started logging out Hwaryung immediately followed them.. .I'll gladly accept! Hwaryung bit the shrimp without the second thought. Yum! Shrimp immediately disappeared in her mouth. Burning desire! Hunger! Craving! "I don't want to get beat up over food!" With a quiet sigh Weed handed over the shrimp... After waiting enough time for mage to leave. trying to minimize the loss in any possible way." However Hwaryung didn't have the strength to hold back. then. But here wide open eyes were staring at shrimp with such fascination that there was no need for words.. this. Hwaryung and Zephyr were closely watching as Weed was about to eat the lone shrimp.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung Yummy! In anticipation. She looked like it was the first time she saw food in many days. Hwaryoung? . As for Zephyr .once he recognized Weed. He just stepped aside and watched his former fishing rival. . so she loudly swallowed. Hwaryung wasn't asking to share.. he didn't logged out at all.. "There's only one so there's no way I can ask him to share. she logged back in. .. for one gold. He didn't have a choice. Page 119 of 159 .slowly replied the girl. But that was just to get rid of Sollon. She didn't even get upset over last words of Weed.. Weed slowly stuck his tongue out and slowly mowed the shrimp towards his mouth.Ye-eah.
"Now that I think about it. But the shrimp's aroma drove away her voice of reason. It could be said she was behaving like an addict at that time. But if not for standing nearby Weed and Zephyr. That's why he didn't regret spending money to buy 500 shrimps. All thanks to the ever increasing cooking skill of Weed. Life +400. For Weed they were representing investments. Even in real life she was watching her waist and often was on a diet.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung Actually. she'll regret it for the rest of her life. Mapan mentioned that if you stick to Weed. Hwaryung wasn't so obsessed with food. Life and some other attributes. Hwaryung finally settled down. she'd eat those with delight. Every piece of the shrimp was giving her heavenly pleasure." Weed with regret took out another shrimp and started cooking it from the start. Art +15. Stamina +20. Shrimps were expensive so they couldn't be eaten as snacks. After gleefully finishing the shrimp. She wasn't regretting it one bit. shrimp. she threw a regretful glance at the remaining head and tail of the shrimp that usually no one would eat. good things will be happening to you all the time! I got to taste such a delicacy! Yummy!" Finally. "Sorry. Investments in fighting ability! Because effects of food were giving maximum possible boost to Mana. Don't trust those who say hunger inspires artists. Mana +400. She had a feeling that if she won't eat it right now. Page 120 of 159 . You are well-fed.
Weed never considered any other answer. his blacksmithing. Then she waved to Zephyr. Were Weed to be a cook.Thanks! . And repair too if there's a need. Page 121 of 159 .Will you join? Fishermen nodded happily.I'm going to continue the hunt. They didn't expect a single man to be a master of so many trades.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung Only artist with a full stomach can concentrate on his art instead of his hunger.Create party. Actually. Her abilities as a dancer would come in handy as a trump card. And it was just a small step that separated an unskilled egghead from an omnipotent player. And of course he didn't forget to take his 1 gold from Hwaryung. Besides. though by a small margin. or better taste. there were plenty of monsters and therefore. .. It was a great opportunity to improve. . Hwaryung? . .Then wait a bit. experience. He didn't have anything in particular against it. food's effects varied depending on player's profession. . and fishing rod's attack too. and some extra help would come in handy. there'd be increase in vitality and cooking. if you were in one party with Hwaryung. Though he didn't quite understand why Zephyr didn't logout as everyone else. Weed started to gather his belongings. your attributes would get a certain boost. Even though damage from her attacks wasn't that high.The defense increased. .. . cooking and tailoring skills.I'm in if you're ok with me! Weed just nodded and sent an invitation to Zephyr. her movements were swift and monsters couldn't even scratch her. Hwaryung and Zephyr gave Weed a surprised look.Wow! Cool! .Yeah.exclaimed Hwaryung in excitement and accepted the invitation. Hwaryung. you with me. I'll make another dish for Zephyr and polish and sharpen your equipment. Weed brought up the control menu and invited Hwaryung. contrary to monsters'. . sure! To be honest.
Death Knight! Smoke started pouring from necklace on Weed's neck. Especially in the province of Mora. suffer through mockery of paladins and beatings of his master. He had to kill a lot of monsters. but in return Weed just slowly shook his head.joyfully said Hwaryung. . so he was excited.the better it is for the party. History of dungeon of Basra wasn't a common knowledge for players.There will be barely enough monsters for us three. . After all he was getting experience not for sunbathing.Damn monster! It's time you pay off for everything.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung ..Weed immediately started grumbling. We have 3 people and many parties will gladly accept us.. It had been a while since he was summoned last time. and a moment later the death knight Van Hawk emerged from it.asked dumbfounded Zephyr.Do you honestly believe we can hunt in dungeon of Basra with just the three of us? . . A lot of time had passed since Weed defeated and subjugated Van Hawk. It was strongly objecting to integration into British Confederacy.Yes. at that time he was getting not just 20% of Weed's experience but all 100% for those he killed by himself. .You called me.. Come forth. . Page 122 of 159 .. Unaware of it himself. Weed and his party descended to fourth level. In the past a family of nobles used to live in the lands of Basra. Though. in the dungeon of Basra. They fought through numerous battles and Van Hawk managed to greatly raise his level. We have four. And the headquarter of that uprising was located here. master? . I'm wrong. . where Weed decided that the more vampires die . so they made a deal with the thieves guild and started to prepare an uprising. but he decided to remain silent for now. After sending death knight to the front. he guessed right. . He had things to say.Huh? What.Three of us will do fine. or so I think. And Van Hawk used it to the fullest.Thanks Weed! Now let's go find a party. But death knight had things to say too. Because of that he managed to greatly surpass Weed and reach a level of 290. . so he wasn't holding the monster back. Death knight was leeching off 20% of his experience. Just one glance on his minion filled Weed with grief.
Thieves collapsed to the floor.thought Hwaryung. ...And turn out his pockets! .Power of Darkness! . Trembling in fear and barely moving his feet Zephyr didn't have a choice but to slowly follow Weed in hope that things will somehow work out. His weapon greatly darkened and a few moments later it let out thousands of finest threads. And he wasn't wrong.Let's check his bag! ... he dragged them to the 4th! Therefore they followed behind the confidently pacing Weed and dark knight. Weed's behavior was confusing them. Zephyr and Hwaryung were astounded... Death Knights were quite adept with dark magic. "Whoa. as dungeon of Basra was highly popular among players.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung . Monsters inhabiting it were too strong.There's no one at all here. ." Hwaryung and Zephyr could barely hold back their fear and anger." "That's what level 290 monsters look like? How does Weed even control such a beast?" Page 123 of 159 .. ..Deadly Blade! Van Hawk accumulated dark energy in his blade and directed it towards the oncoming thieves. "If we die here. Not sparing any more words thieves of Basra started their attack. which struck attacking enemies in the chest. with levels from 240 and higher." . "Amen! Why did I even come back! I could be relaxing at home right now.And raise a level! We need more power for new revolt! A group of thief-monsters jumped out from behind the corner. Even when 3rd floor hunting was hard enough. We're crazy to come here without a priest or paladins.said Zephyr in a barely audible voice. The spell he just used significantly increased weapon damage and defense of armor. ...yelled Van Hawk and rushed into the fight. we'll lose all the items. it was rare for them to hunt on 4th level. They were equipped in iron armor and were carrying swords.
he looked like he has given up on his life. . but for now he headed into battle: . this is more fun... Even though it was partially due to his dark nature.Money! Give me your money! His opponents' swords were passing dangerously close to Weed. Meanwhile Weed himself was surprised not less than his friends. Though from aside. the item in which the death knight Van Hawk was eternally trapped.I command! Do not to kill them.Sculpting blade! He couldn't imagine himself without that technique! With his blade shining blue Weed was rushing among enemies dealing multiple blows.. "Crimson amulet of life." Weed noted to self to teach a lesson to Van Hawk later. Furthermore. And he was extremely surprised to see his minion in a different light. "Here. when did he become so powerful?" Weed could only remember him beating the knight and improving his own skills. who lifted his sword to finish defeated enemies. which increased damage to non-undead enemies.. Was that really a reward? Or just some cunning way for NPC to increase its level before breaking out of. jumped forward and dropped the hilt of his sword on the head of Van Hawk. I haven't taught him enough. Weed's words weren't just feeling bragging any more. we'll finish them ourselves. Because of dodging and parrying he managed not to get any wounds. "That jerk is talking back to me." Page 124 of 159 ..Die! .Understood Master. Just disable. ... ." Suddenly Weed forgot about everything. Because of significant increase in level death knight could feel his growing power and wasn't so content with receiving orders from 'lowbie' Weed. and that it is really possible to hunt in dungeon of Basra with just 4 people. . he had another black amulet with Lord Tori in it inside his backpack. Death knight managed to beat four enemies with a single strike. "Wow...The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung At that moment they realized that Weed wasn’t just another ordinary player...Abruptly roared Van Hawk in Weed's face..
so his lessons weren't ordinary as well.. significant. In the school.thought Hyun.. he would never back out of a fight. Hyun only was taught basic skills. The obstacle was in his way.This is a Sword. Even though. Absence of parents. watching in fascination. Hyun could violently assault anyone in attempts to defend every precious memory of his parents. Intoxicating sensation of your own might fills you with overflowing happiness and you feel like you can conquer the world..The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung The thrill of being completely surrounded by enemies. "Woah. This was an art of a real master. not Odein. or. and without a second thought the beast lunged forward and tore it apart and rushed ahead. However lately he's been coming to the dojo to learn from the master of the sword himself. debts and constant fights with bullies.. He entirely changed his attitude towards sword. . or an eagle. However. Hyun started to realize that only god knew if there's a limit to mastery of a sword.. And that strengthened his spirit.Sword. you start to perceive you opponents' breath and movements. A game like this will never become boring! Weed thought about Swords. In the hands of his teacher the sword was drawing graceful and smooth curves. However watching the skill of his teacher. He became stronger. in front of the predator the Fort Odein appeared. falling from the sky. Then. his life wasn't easy before he started going to the dojo. the pattern started to change. as if reacting to his thoughts. so he had to learn the art of the sword by himself in the game. It was hard to believe that someone could handle a sword like that." . move and take care of his weapon. Lee Hyun learned a lot from An Hyon-Do. but now he didn't have the right to miss anything happening at his sides or his back. but something solid. Now it was a prowling predator. Every thief-monster was a lot stronger than death knights of Lavias. fights grow more and more entertaining. I became free after I mastered the sword. . "No... It is harder to master than a gun. An Hyon-Do wasn't an ordinary man. who was creating another masterpiece. Death." Something thicker and taller than Fort's walls blocked predator's path.." Page 125 of 159 . In the fight with the knights he only had to watch the front. learned to properly breath. Your heartbeat quickens. decease and other hardships no longer bother you. "This really is a Sword. but by doing it you become stronger.
She melted my heart of stone! Page 126 of 159 . If you were to deal an exceptionally successful series of strikes in the game. parrying and striking at the same time..Oooo! Why did I go from knight to thief. However Weed just dismissed the message and rushed back into battle. . you would be able to save it.AAAAA! His hands were flying around him. . For Weed fight was something living. You have dealt a critical strike. .Sculpting blade! After killing three monsters he dove right in the middle of enemy group. . Sometimes you have to act as your instinct tells you.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung Weed avoided a long stab from the side and lunged forward. unpredictable and extraordinary. Weed was dealing series of critical strikes. ..Your continuous attack succeeded. and by using fixed techniques you just restrain yourself. but Hwaryung and Zephyr also joined the battle.Charming dance! Enemies who watched erotic and tempting moves of the girl. Do you want to save the series of strikes? Skillfully moving from enemy to enemy. You deal consecutive critical strikes. froze in confusion and embarrassment. to later use it at will as an individual technique. Though a bit later. if only I still were. .Such a beautiful girl. Their cheeks reddened and eyes filled with desire. . With a trust in his skill and polished armor he was eagerly spilling enemies' blood.
. Their level is too high. Hwaryung incapacitated 12 more opponents and fell on the floor exhausted. their situation was complicated.These ones won't be attacking us. and was sitting on the floor completely drained. Thanks to fishing. Not forgetting to cooperate with partners of course.No introductions! I have no interest in you! . But then there appeared Zephyr. It seemed like the situation was straightening out. and she proceeded to dance with another group. so they had to give their all to stay alive.Swing! Zephyr swung his fishing rod and joined the fight. so he handled this fight better. you must deal with the rest by that time.About two minutes. incapacitated earlier by Hwaryung started to come to their senses. She spent all of her mana. Their lives depended on that information. Every time he extended his rod a few enemies were knocked down. . . as they were immediately finished by a series of critical strikes from suddenly appearing Weed. that her dance techniques and attributes weren't developed enough. Hwaryung tamed enemies to the right and Zephyr was fighting the ones on the left! Compared to previous fights.. "That's hard. but all of them at the same time! Fisherman's skills allowed him to damage whole bunch of enemies at the same time.Slowly thought Hwaryng.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung Having captured the enemies’ attention she exclaimed: . She wasn't strong enough. . who came to cover her from advancing enemies. Weed and Van were holding back main forces of enemy. his attributes. Page 127 of 159 ..For how long? . were highly developed. When their health was dropping to about a third they were dying. when enemies. I probably should have fought stronger opponents before?" . especially fortitude and stamina.Immediately asked Zephyr. can't continue.. expecting some monster to end her life at any moment. ... Zephyr was fighting the surrounding monsters at his limit. Up to this time Hwaryung always tried to pick the weaker monsters while not exerting too much in a fight. But this time she had to give it her all and she realized. .Eeeeh?! Her words left enemies stunned. He wasn't hitting opponents one by one.I'm done.
However a few moments later deeply surprised Hwaryung realized that there was no one else to fight.. That was the only fight on her memory where she had to exert herself by 110%.But that is so dangerous! And hard! Are you not afraid at all to fight monsters.. She couldn't believe they won! "Phew. .Yes.calmly answered Weed. That was hard. It seemed that the battle will never end. Food that makes me stronger. their victory was well-deserved. In tight situations the stench of blood and the feeling of opponent's strength were often stunning players by fear. if not for death knight's help.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung The intense battle continued without a single moment of rest. which would be a sure death. Well. but. If armor or weapons were losing even a bit of durability. .. they'd all be finished by now. She was dancing like a butterfly. and from up there all the monsters looked so small. . long and extremely dangerous. first thing after a fight Weed was repairing them. fun. Her mood was great. Hwaryung regained some strength and hurried to back up Zephyr. It was hard. She didn't remember how she was fighting and who dealt the last blow. After that they were easily killed.Sculpting blade! Weed was trying to move as fast as possible. .. Hwaryung let out another of her dazzling smiles.. She couldn't imagine how one could be able to fight alone with only enemies all around. whose level is a lot higher than yours? Hwaryung got a little frightened. In her chaotic memories fight looked like a fragment of hell.. That's when I realized that they're just food.. But that didn't upset her at all. with you Weed. Page 128 of 159 .Weed. Even though they were playing a virtual reality game the fear was real. He had to hurry: if he were to stop even for a moment monsters would come closer and completely surround him. there's no time to be bored.. . It seemed like I can squish them with a finger. do you always fight like this? . stabbing exposed sides of enemies with her daggers. in Lavias I had to climb very high.Seriously. He already started to repair damaged armor." .You know Hwaryung.asked Hwaryung the question that had been growing inside her since the beginning of the fight. . but still the moment he was finishing one opponent another was already attacking him. .she wiped sweat off her forehead and smiled.
...Huh? Death Knight? She looked at Van and noticed that he's preparing another of his techniques. Zephyr and Hwaryung were speechless from surprise... Next time I should aim to drop my health to 3%.. at the moment enemies' hits feel like tickling for me... Don't worry too much..Let's see.Hwa. . Hwa. Even in Odein I was fighting mostly weak opponents.Worry made him stutter. I haven't been fighting for a long time..now it'll get a bit dangerous.Zephyr?! . . . He got to fish with Weed for quite a long time.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung However not everyone was celebrating the end of the fight. your Endurance attribute increases greatly. To be honest." "My armor isn't any worse. "That's something! So the blows of thieves of Basra are 'ticklish' for him?" "How? Even though he has an intermediate blacksmith skill. I don't even remember the last time my health dropped below 15%. . Zephyr was watching death knight with fear. Did you think after fishing Weed was sitting in a shade to relax? Not at all! Having finished fixing armor.... She was unaware of what Zephyr realized long ago. I'm not in my best shape. So in following battles you should try to lose as much health as you can. but I think we might have a couple close calls this time. . I'll tell you a secret: when your health gets very low. Weed applied a number of bandages and got up on his feet.You know. .Look at the death knight. Trust me. Hwaryung was oblivious to what was going on so she became curious. . that'll pay off handsomely. so he had an idea on what was about to happen. For example. . Hwaryung... he can't be. but every hit of a monster hurts like hell!" "Damn masochist!" Page 129 of 159 . .He said..Hmmm. After this battle only my Endurance slightly raised.What happened? . .. That's because I made a miscalculation and the battle wasn't as hard as I expected.
So.. then the hunt goes on. Even though Zephyr's fishing and Hwaryung's dances allowed them to raise their attributes quite a lot. "So there exist people like Weed. "He has 5 crafting skills at intermediate level.they thought. due to them having high Charisma and Leadership attributes.. . They hurriedly nodded.." "He's a beast..The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung But his next words shook them even more. A machine. They only had time for quick repairs and light healing. Having accepted Weed's invitation. now that the scouting and warm-up is over.Fishing rod feint! . even though compared to other players they were pretty normal. they still were as far from Weed as from the moon. Usually the party leader's position was taken by a warrior or a knight. of that Hwaryung and Zephyr could agree. Because if leader had high level of those two attributes. they were switching to the next." "We aren't that useless!" .Aaaaaaa! .. And also he was the strongest of the three.Deadly dance! Charming dance! . they automatically assigned him as a party leader." He was odd. Do you accept me as a party leader? If so. it is time we fight for real.. party members were less likely to be affected by panic and were getting increased experience.. Endless fight to the death against thieves of Basra..Come on! Hit me! Raise my endurance! The hunt has started.. Scouting? For Zephyr and Hwaryung previous fight was living hell! Having seen their twisted in horror faces. he asked in doubt: . . And monsters confronting such players were not able to use their skills to the fullest. Page 130 of 159 . To do all those things.Well.. Let alone his crafting profession having battle techniques. As soon as one group of monsters got finished. his attributes were ridiculously high as well! Looking at Weed they could feel their inferiority.
Waaaaaaa! In the past Zephyr wouldn't believe if someone was to tell him he won't be looting defeated enemies. At least he'll get some rest..You overdid it! We are humans. No... . ... But it was happening now. Situation wasn't critical. Hahahahaha! He laughed to tears from joy. He's not a priest and won't be able to save me. don't worry about me. happily watching blood pouring out of his stomach. They were fighting in such manner for almost 16 hours.Zephyr got frightened for a moment." . but without immediate priest's help an injury like this would end killing him. Bleeding has stopped Page 131 of 159 . A deadly injury. However Weed's expression didn't falter one bit. "He's dying. With a relieved smile Zephyr said: .I'll fix you right away.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung . Weed.I'm fine. But then Weed rummaged through his bag and started taking out bandages one by one. Hwaryung.. and when we get tired we need rest! Then Hwaryung looked at Zephyr with a bit of envy. His health was quickly dropping and already reached 23%.Ahahah! With bandages? Don't joke like that. because of the constantly attacking waves of enemies they just didn't have time for that.Apply bandage! . rapidly applying multiple bandages. I wonder when I will get free from that devil?!" That was the first time she was envious of a dying player..Was shouting Weed again and again. Hwaryung threw a hateful glance at Weed.. when finally Zephyr got wounded. . A thief has stabbed him in the stomach with a sword. . "What if?. can't be..
Zephyr was hitting his fist on the ground in sorrow.Life increased to 26% . . This time he didn't have Alveron with his healing magic.. 1400. . Weed. Weed was slaying one monster after another and was thinking that it wasn't actually that hard.Ermm.Zephyr's eyes were round from astonishment. Just a little bit away from the high level! During his long hunt in the province of Mora.Life increased to 29% . Weed had to apply loads of bandages and so his skill level got surprisingly high. so players weren't using First Aid skill at all. a real sadist and devil! Now he'll have to hunt monsters forever! The battle continued.Intermediate 9th level of First Aid... To almost twice the amount..Wound has closed . dungeon of Basra looked like kindergarten.. Damn Weed.Intermediate 9th level. but since then his health has raised a lot because of improved attributes and fishing. He gave Weed a frightened look. Thieves of Basra on the contrary used short swords. what's your level of First Aid? . and though they attacked in great numbers they were a lot less dangerous opponents. Usually parties had at least one priest. Page 132 of 159 .The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung . so most of them had a skill level of beginner even on high levels.Wow! . Even in Lavias death knights were a lot more dangerous for him! At least they were using long swords and dark magic.. Compared to what he experienced in the province of Mora.
Weed enjoyed fighting strong opponents. but having gained some power and experience.dragged Weed... .Can't help it. that thieves of Basra will be coming to them in nightmares for the rest of their lives. "Time to end it. It was a hard hunt. thanks to his blacksmith skill. Hwaryung and Zephyr started to nod excitedly. Weed was able to sharpen and polish equipment. And those made him even stronger than if he was still hunting up to now and achieved a level of 280.. which allowed him to raise many other skills to intermediate level during last few months. And even before. that was terrifying.Can't help it. Let's do it quickly. increasing his survivability even further.Crap. That sure was hard. he was fighting death knights while only having level 110. "Daaaaaaaaamn!!!" Chapter 9: The Dark Gamer’s Union Wing Lee Hyun closed his math textbook. that's why he went to the 4th floor of dungeon of Basra. and he died a lot." They were sure. The profession of Legendary Moonlight Sculptor! Only because of it Weed was forced to significantly improve his handicraft skill.. Thieves of Basra wait for us. Weed suddenly realized that his bag was full. Page 133 of 159 . But then Weed's words shocked them yet again. . ." "Damn. To become stronger and fight harder battles. he was winning battle after another and that was making him happy.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung Also. Having defeated another group of monsters. we'll have to make a quick trip to the village to sell the stuff. Hwaryung and Zephyr weren't sad at all! . and then we'll come back again.
. It was very hard to study math all by himself. to pass the exam in order to get high school diploma he just had to get back to studying. teacher has to put dozen times more effort. "Hmmm. But that answer didn't satisfy Hyun as he continued: "The interest will amount to $16. How much will you get in the end?" "316 dollars and 17 cents!" When Hayan was asking questions like that. However Hayan had planned everything ahead.. and since then he never once thought he'd open a textbook again. he was spending all of his time on earning money by manual labor.17.. but its meaning was eluding him." Hayan smiled happily: "See? It's simple. learning math was very hard.. But even with his sister's help. Now to the next problem. And when the student has no interest in the subject.39% interest rate. she was always getting a correct answer in a blink of an eye. But they are subjected to taxes.. but going to cram school would mean additional expenses. Knowing her brother well." Lee Hyun was muttering to himself nonstop. Hyun's head was barely working. she took an unusual approach to education. He was meticulously reading the book. But I already paid for exam. why are they teaching so many different formulae!? If I would ever need them. "Look. so his brain got pretty rusty.42 of standard tax.." After a long break from studying. It's either $2. "Damn. or $2. After a long speculation Hyun and his sister decided that she'll help him with studies for an hour every couple of days. Let's see! Hyun have read all the textbooks and solved half the problems from them." Ever since Hyun left school. Think about them! You deposited $300 for 12 month with 5.. This number is your savings..The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung A few years ago he had to drop out of middle school. but gradually he started to notice that solving problems became easier and easier. Count the money.10 of simplified tax. I should probably just forget it and return to the game. and for the complicated stuff I could use a calculator. You have to learn everything in a similar manner. they can be easily found on the internet. However. He even borrowed all the textbooks his sister had. Page 134 of 159 .
as it is rare for two children to be adopted by the same family.. If not for their grandmother. you just have no choice but to get yourself together and learn all you can in the remaining time. "Sure. She was getting better.. Hyun. On the way there he visited his grandmother in the hospital." Lee Hyun tightly gripped her hand. And so came the day of the exam. 'Korea' university was well-known in other countries. Page 135 of 159 . I should go now. "Well. where his exam was held. Grandma. Lee Hyun appreciated the majesty of the main building of the university. to be able to walk to the school in the centre of the town. Hyun left his home early. A lot of talented young people. she was able to go for walks all by herself. Hyun will be grateful to her for the rest of his life.. Exam was held at a public high school ‘Korea’.. You'll always be able to prepare better and pass all your exams. and according to her doctor." .The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung All in 4 days before the exam! That's because when you still have a lot of time you just can't make yourself study. they'd be sent to orphanage and most likely get separated... including students from abroad. I must. but its reputation abroad. so it had more students from abroad than any other Korean university. His grandmother's hands were all wrinkled from the hard manual labor that she had to do in her late years to raise Hyun and Hayan after their parents died. "Don't worry if you fail. I have to do my best. it had good teaching staff and well-designed infrastructure.. were studying here in an independent and creative environment. It was part of educational complex ‘Korea’ and was located near a college and a university. she wasn't as pale. The main quality of a prestigious university isn't its rating inside the country." said his grandmother with an encouraging smile.. Though the university didn't get into top ten most prestigious universities of the country.Hyun said goodbye to his grandmother and went to the school. But once exams are already at hand.
so he took his pen and started writing down answers to the questions. were not able to get a proper education. but I swear. I know almost all of them. (2) Pick it up and check for any witnesses. Lee Hyun noted with a surprise that he knew most of it. the faults in Korean educational system gave rise to another unfortunate genius! But he didn't have time for idle thoughts. Though he shouldn't ignore the fact that this exam was meant for adult and elderly people. If only I had a chance to continue getting education. contemplating deep in thoughts over some problem from time to time.. (4) Pick it up.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung Even though I live a lousy life. Actually. Hyun regretted a lot that he wasn't able to continue going to school. you just have to know basic principles. I'm sure I would have achieved a great result. So it was a bit easier than the usual exam. You found a wallet on the ground. (3) Pick it up and run away.. After receiving his question list. Every group consisted of 30 people.. Page 136 of 159 .thought Hyun. In his opinion. but he picked ethics as he decided that he doesn't need to study it. check for ID card. One of the subjects Hyun was allowed to choose for his exam was ethics. 1.. slowly looking through the questions. he could pick a foreign language or some other subject. who for some reason. His intense and rushed studying method had a great result. . my sister will be able to study here. and try to find the owner. (5) Take money and leave the wallet. What will you do? (1) Take it.
so with it he finished his exam. were standing in small groups.. 5th looked correct as well. He wanted to hear the rest of their conversation. if it falls in water it will be lost.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung Lee Hyun scratched his head. "Golden axe. Shining Golden Axe! With 60+ damage!" "What about bonus stats?" "Strength +45. if you knew how to wield an axe. So." "Whoa! Cool!" In the hallways. "In my last trip to Ross Gleasis I got a new weapon. Well. increased chance to not to encounter bandits while travelling. "Joong Hoon. you were a really dangerous fighter. After pondering for a while he opted to the 2nd answer. I'm jealous.. So which answer is the right one? He thought ethics was an easy subject. When we left school all we did was drinking..." Axes in the game had the highest damage attribute. One of the guys looked to be around 30 years old. the other two were a bit younger. 3 of the answers are correct. I'm totally getting a full mark for ethics. Ethics was last subject. people who just finished their exam. but their attack range and speed were considered to be the lowest. And almost all of them were talking about Royal Road. we were just fooling around." "Yeah.. but it proved to have such complicated questions. while you're a Dark Gamers Union member. Even though every hit from an axe would deal tremendous damage. Other ethics questions weren't as hard. He wasn't in a hurry so he decided to walk behind that gossiping group of guys. and Hyun answered them with ease. Agility -10. Lee Hyun picked up his bag and started walking towards the exit. but 'leaving the wallet' wasn't the best choice... it didn't matter much if you couldn't land even one of them." Page 137 of 159 . Even his decision to leave school wasn't as hard to make..
when Joong Hoon called out to Hyun: "Hey! We have a spare seat.. However Joong Hoon and two guys stopped on the parking lot near a foreign car. Lucky one." "Really? Thanks!" They got in a car and Hyun didn't have a choice but to be on his way to bus stop. but the man continued: "It's fine." Page 138 of 159 .. If you want. "Joong Hoon. wanna join? If you live nearby I'll give you a lift. what's your level?" "My level? Let's see. And what's your rating?" "I'm in the top 10000." The number of players in the game went over 100 millions. Isn't he ashamed? Lee Hyun thought that there's nothing to be proud about if you earn money by playing games. "Get in. Because you're not making anything useful. but none of them are of such a high level. not bringing anything new into the world. you just make money out of thin air. you'd be one of the most useless people in the world. I see you play Royal Road as well. To get home he had to take a bus. so being in top 10000 meant a lot. But Hyun was most surprised by the reaction of two other guys: they knew who that man was and they were jealous.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung Dark Gamer? Dark Gamer was a name for players who were making money through games. I noticed that you were listening to our conversation. I'll show you what being a dark gamer is. 355.." "That's huge! I have a lot of friends in game. Lee Hyun couldn't hide his envy and slowed down his pace. you can join us.. And were games to disappear." Hyun started to consider if he should accept the invitation. Already at 355th level. what was it. We're headed to the regular meeting of dark gamers at the moment.
They sell items and in-game money obtained by their employees. You can't get all the information immediately. The main reason for Union is information exchange.." "Wow. "Then what does being in the Union mean?" "Good Question. but those who make a living that way?" "A few tens of thousands?" .. But we made ours.. "Not less than a hundred thousand.. I'll tell you about our Union. they made their own decision." "Eh. it's not so easy. That is why we created The Dark Gamers Union. "Before we start our meeting.. and multiple chairs." International borders meant nothing for Royal Road. and do not want publicity." Choi Joong Hoon's words slightly confused recruits. Even the language barrier was removed. "I heard there's a trading company in Korea that works only with Royal Road.. thanks to the automatic speech translation software." He introduced himself as Choi Joong Hoon and continued with a smile: "How many people in your opinion make money by selling items from Royal Road? Not just once or twice. A lot of our members are unsociable by nature and prefer to be alone. a long table. Inside a huge building there were a couple of capsules. provided by Unicon Corporation. profitable trading routes and rare monsters. Our union accumulates information gathered by members.. Choi Joong Hoon shook his head. why's that?" Page 139 of 159 . you share information? So it means that once I join the Union I get access to the information database?" "Unfortunately. It allows you to learn about hunting grounds..The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung Dark gamers were gathering at an abandoned warehouse. China and some other countries of East Asia. I'm not going to criticize them. Member's access level is determined by his rank within the Union." "So many?" "And most of them are from India.asked one of the guys after a bit of thought. Players like that wouldn't be able to show their potential in a big company. good dungeons." "That's true. Any person from any country was able to enjoy the game using capsule.
and Union is all about information. "Well. Same thing if you sell items through our auction website often enough.. As the guys had a level of 140. there's not much I can do. Of course every new member gets access to the basic information. Also players of level 100 have no use for information about dungeons of level 200 and higher.." Then Choi Joong Hoon leaned to Hyun's ear and whispered: "Those two are just random people. So if you would join our Union." "I suppose you just don't want to bother with sharing valuable information.." "That looks good enough. That's how it all works. Depending on this data the initial rank was assigned. they got assigned the lowest rank 'D'.. you'll get access to some special information. They probably won't even use information available to them." ". your rank rises. if you refuse to join. levels and other related information. "Aren't you going to sign up too?". But there's a certain limit to that kind of advance in rank. who came with Choi Joong Hoon. asked Joong Hoon after approaching the calmly sitting Hyun. But I can see that you are different." "Yeah." "So rank is directly dependent on the value of information you provide?" "Not just that. It didn't happen before.. Therefore we assign ranks to our members according to the value of information they provide. Isn't that so?" Page 140 of 159 . if you don't need access to information for newbies. "I'm not going to join." "So that's your answer?" Joong Hoon didn't look disappointed in the least. But if that's your decision. If you actively participate in the Union's activities. So how do we sign up?" Two guys. And as you agreed to come here with us you must have a certain interest in our organization.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung "That's just security measure. that means you do play Royal Road." "Guess that's true. And that rank determines how much access they have to our data. They stated their character names.. but some member might leak our information outside. started to fill the papers. Lee Hyun though it over 2nd time and after counting all the pros and cons shook his head. Once there's enough people about anything can happen.
First rule of dark gamers is ‘Don't trust anyone'." "Why do I get such a special treatment?" . But even the 2nd rejection didn't upset Joong Hoon. I see a real dark gamer in you. password 165008. On the 4th level of dungeon of Basra Weed. Hwaryung and Zephyr were concentrating on hunting. You seem to be the kind of person to follow those two rules. Page 141 of 159 . "Anyway. and added .The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung Lee Hyun was quite surprised. trust me. and would you use some of our information.asked Hyun indifferently." And so Lee Hyun decided to join the Dark Gamers Union. who was silent up till this moment.he'd most likely have some problems." "What about 3rd rule?" "And here's the 3rd rule: 'Only trust in money'. you'll get a rank 'C'. And our Union respects that." ". Login kj9008. Also." "There's also the 2nd rule: 'Give as much as you take'... Dark gamers have three rules.Weed .. Once you login using it." If Lee Hyun was to reveal his name . It looked like Choi Joong Hoon saw a lot of players like Hyun and so was pretty accurate with his assumptions. it seemed he liked Hyun's response." ". That exactly describes our current relationships. you can change the password once you login if you're worried someone else might get access to your information. That's a special account for people who join our website for the first time. and it gives you access to a decent amount of valuable data. On the contrary. Do you know our website? Then listen here.. "Okay."Colleague?" "That's simple. you'd provide something valuable in return. At least people like you won't stab in the back. He recalled how On Joo-wan threatened to interview him. Everyone has their own principles." Lee Hyun. However I'll give you an advice: If you're a serious Royal Road player you'd better off joining our Union. that's fine. quietly replied: "I don't have time to raise my rank and I don't want to give away any information.
Dungeon of Basra . so only players from Prosperity Guild or their allies will be allowed to hunt there. No wonder Weed's partners had such a reaction. and with every fight their skill and experience points were rising." "Yeah. I've got to get at least 5 more levels in the remaining time. Quite a lot of time passed since the siege of Odein. We'll stay here for another day or two at most. But this time there's absolutely no way we can beat the boss and his knights. And it's best to begin from some strong monster.. When Weed first mentioned his idea. "Ok. a place called 'Main Revolt Headquarters'. Balkan Guild was greatly weakened and won't be able to launch another assault on the stronghold for time being. It's a pity. Weed was thinking that dungeon of Basra almost expended its value as a hunting ground. health back to full. So they finally resigned themselves to his will. I'm sorry for the time I had to spend on exam. Weed called his friends and headed to the place they hadn't yet visited once . Hwaryung and Zephyr answered with a strong resent: "I can't believe it!" "Weed.. Most probably all the hunting grounds around Odein will become private. have you finally gone nuts?!" Dungeon of Basra's boss had a level of 290.one of the most famous dungeons. In the past two days Weed gained 17 levels.. Meanwhile.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung They risked their lives in every fight. let's go look for the next fight. "Weed." Page 142 of 159 .. So the winners will have enough time to secure their position. that'd be nice." Zephyr and Hwaryung got on their feet. Weed.to the den of the dungeon's boss. I won't be able to get experience fast enough from small ones. it was all in vain. we used to think that you had better judgment. reaching level 247. Whatever the methods they tried to persuade Weed to slow down the pace of the hunt. and he was accompanied by subordinate knights of level 275. renowned for plentiful experience and valuable loot. But he doubted they will be able to hunt here for much longer.
"Hahaha! We haven't had any visitors for quite a while. Necromancer's magic is very different from that of normal mages. after all they weren't encountering bosses all too often. like to stop assassins sent for his head. there was the dungeon's boss. Weed wasn't getting bored with them around. or to provide thieves with the items they require. Those are some funny friends I've got myself here. one just has to remember how agitated he becomes if even one coin is at stake. Thank god. Because if you are friendly enough. That's our end. I'll get to rest.Zephyr backed Hwaryung up ." "They say his attack power is enormous!" "Yeah.At that moment that was their only wish. "And bandages can only be applied after the battle!" .exclaimed Zephyr." . . Suddenly Zephyr and Hwaryung exchanged glances and a complete unanimity could be read on their faces. But they did feel a little thrilled. He couldn't stop being surprised how simple they were. They brightened up and smiled. accompanied by 2 knights and 12 thieves. What business do you have here?" In the deepest part of the dungeon. it's going to end here. at least their smiles indicated otherwise.added Hwaryung. However Weed didn't realize that he was not much different. Upon hearing the boss Hvaryung and Zephyr bid farewell to their lives. They weren't too nervous. sitting on a magnificent throne and dressed in gorgeous clothes. Page 143 of 159 . and even said to be a necromancer.." Weed waved his hand to interrupt them: "His attacks are really that strong?" "Of course! And no kind of bandages will help that. you would be able to get a quest from him.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung "Exactly!" . And you also have to take into account his 290th level and an increase in health due to his ‘boss’ status."Basra's boss is a dark mage.. so it was possible to prevent the fight. The main NPC of the dungeon was gathering forces to revenge British Confederacy. "Weed! We're coming!" Once I die. you take a couple hits and you're dead.
The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung Naturally, would you take one of those quests you'd become the enemy of British Confederacy. However not just anyone was able to take those quests but only players with high enough fame attribute. So when Basra's boss started talking to Weed, Hwaryung and Zephyr started to get nervous. Because if the fight won't start they won't get a chance to die. But much to their relief Weed tightened his grip on the sword and answered: "We came to kill you." "Hohoho! So you're just another pack of British dogs! Well, if you came here to die I won't disappoint you. I'll hang your heads at the entrance as a warning for other puppets of Confederacy. Knights! Kill them!" "Yes, your Royal Highness Archduke." While the boss was babbling, Weed waved his sword and yelled: "Holy blessing!" The effect of Agatha's holy sword triggered and holy spirit infused Weed. " High Priest’s Blessing!" The ring on Weed's hand faintly flared and covered Weed's body with soft glow. Even though these items' effects had duration of only 20 minutes, they were blessed by the High Priest of church of Freya himself! In a single moment Weed became stronger by half. "Van, hold off the thieves!" "Understood, master." Even death knight forgot his defiance in presence of such blessings. It wasn't wise to meddle with Weed when he was so strong. "Zephyr, help Van to deal with thieves." "But..." If he was to fight, he'd prefer fighting knights, that'd be a faster way to die. "Hwaryung will stall the knights. I'll take on the Archduke." "What if they come to their senses?" - exclaimed Hwaryung in a worried voice. "Then deal with it. If Van and Zephyr finish the knights by then, they'll help you. I'll be busy with the boss."
Page 144 of 159
The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung Zephyr and Hwaryung didn't have any choice but to follow Weed's orders. Two knights were slowly approaching Weed, skilfully swinging their swords. "Don't sleep Hwaryung, begin!" Zephyr immediately headed towards the group of thieves, and Weed easily slipped past two knights and rushed ahead. Hwaryung was left alone, facing two knights. "Charming dance!" To charm enemies, stronger than her, she'll have to spend a lot of mana and dance much longer than usually. And knights were quickly approaching! "For the glory of Basra!" shouted NPCs and jumped towards Hwaryung. Dancing girl closed her eyes in despair. That'll probably hurt a little... The pain would bring death! It was a lot more welcome than all those strenuous everyday fights that were leaving her completely exhausted. However a second passed, than another, but nothing was happening to her! Moreover, she heard that knights had stopped and started to argue. "Kill her, Jason." "I don't want. You go, Tobon." "I can't! As knights we gave an oath to always protect the ladies. It is our duty! If I kill her, I'll no longer be a knight." "Well, I think the same way! But the boss ordered..." The last words dismissed their doubts. Hwaryung heard one of the knights approach her and say apologetically: "Forgive us, lady!" Even while expecting to die any moment, Hwaryung never stopped her dance, she was still elegantly moving her hands and bending her body. It wasn't difficult at all for her to dance with eyes closed. Over the last few days she had to dance in front of thieves of Basra many times, sometimes while fighting with extreme sleepiness. So she eventually learned to dance with closed eyes. Ding!

The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung
You successfully executed Charming Dance. Knights of Basra are ensnared.
"Ah! After all she's too beautiful, I can't kill her. Sorry boss, we aren't..." Hwaryung managed to disable the knights. "Aww! I can't believe I did that!" She collapsed on the ground in frustration, when Zephyr and Van, who just finished off the thieves, approached her. "Awesome!" Zephyr was admiring Weed's fight against the boss of Basra, who was throwing multiple dark spells at him. "Pierce my enemy, Dark Arrows!" Numerous arrows made of pure darkness shot from behind Archduke aiming at Weed. The spell was cast almost instantly, but Weed still managed to dodge all the arrows. He was able to do that because he had already accounted for a possibility that something like this would happen. So the moment boss began to cast his spell Weed had determined its type and area of effect and started to evade it. Zephyr was completely astonished by that feat. "Sculpting Blade!" Weed swung his sword to deflect a few arrows he couldn't dodge and dashed towards Basra's boss. "Blink!" Basra's Archduke instantly teleported a few steps back, however on his chest a bleeding long cut was clearly visible. Weed's Sculpting Blade technique was completely ignoring any armor!
Page 146 of 159
. he'd have almost infinite vitality like Lord Tori. Page 147 of 159 . Now this will become your burial ground as well! Ahahahaha!" "Sculpting Blade!" Weed's movements were significantly slowed now that he had to fight through hordes of summoned skeletons. and since I was a child I used to come here to practice necromancy. and usually players were trying to avoid them. the boss got a few moments to observe the situation and came to a conclusion that it wasn't favorable for him. His voice got filled with triumph: "Most of the Basra's warriors were buried here! This place was a burial ground for many generations. Those monsters weren't that dangerous by themselves. Level 220 monsters won't be that dangerous. but there was almost no damage because Weed had carefully polished his armor before the fight started..The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung For necromancers. who didn't have any armor and had low health.. "Die. and summoned mage. strikes like that were especially dangerous! If only the boss was a leech. if not by half. "Fools!" After gaining some distance from Weed. But attacks continued. Thanks to his vast experience of fighting monsters he was able to precisely determine the level of the enemy by one received hit. used his main trump card. but they'll make avoiding boss's attacks much harder. "It's useless to fight me!" – he shouted in rage . as a true necromancer. and that was what worried Weed the most. warrior and archer skeletons to his aid. Every magic attack of the Archduke could lower Weed's health by third. Weed started to think.. About level 220."I made a contract with the god of death! Do you want to know why those British bastards weren't able to defeat me? I'll show you! The Immortal Power! Arise my soldiers!" The ground under their feet started to tremble and skeletons started to appear from it! Multiple black. human!" One of the skeletons hit Weed from behind with his rusty sword. But there were few monsters like that in the game. The hit was accurate. red and white skeletons! Archduke of Basra.
Yeah. he didn't have any time to spare. Even more skeletons rose from the ground. In other words." . summoned by Weed were a lot weaker than those of the necromancer. idiots.. More than 200 of them. Archduke was able to use blinks to evade Weed's attacks.came the answer from the direction of the battle. and all of them kneeled. but they still managed to divert enemies' attention to let Weed escape the skeletons' ranks.. and a couple minutes later he succumbed to the furious onslaught of his opponents and died. Now the entire party was chasing the fleeing boss. I know the way! Fight fire with fire!" All this time Weed was wearing the helmet of the Death knight that he got in Lavias. I order you with power.shouted the Archduke. The exact amount and degree of obedience depended on the Leadership attribute of the summoner. "Summon skeletons!" The helmet allowed Weed to summon undead of level 50. "I've got to get rid of the undead. "You're not the one who summoned us. Ding! Page 148 of 159 . "Fight! Against those who threaten me!" Two skeleton crowds started to fight each other. "Triple strike! Backstab!" Weed started to assault the boss sparing no mana.. They were dying quickly and did no damage to the enemy. and they were greatly hindering Weed's movements. while blessings would hold for just 20 minutes. given to me: submit to my will!" . expecting their master's order. the fight will become a whole lot harder. "Servants of the god of death. but his advantage was already lost." Skeletons.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung But the problem was that the boss was able to summon skeletons indefinitely. "You. Hwaryung. In this fight it was hardly possible to distinguish friend from foe.. Zephyr and Van finished the knights who had finally woken up and hurried to help Weed. And once their duration is over.
"What the heck?" Page 149 of 159 ." "Well. so he only got one level for this victory.Level has risen." Chapter 10: The Largest Tomb Wing." "... A day later than Weed anticipated. Weed had already fought monsters of level over 290. but he was still far weaker than Lord Tori.5% of life left.

Third and fourth levels of the dungeon were reserved for members of Prosperity and Mavaros Guilds. I watched it closely. then let's continue the hunt... "Hmm. "Wow! Great! We won!" Zephyr and Hwaryung celebrated their victory and walked towards Weed. Weed had almost reached level 259 when the decree of Mavaros gGld was announced..Endurance +1 . Of course this boss was stronger than the vampire lords..

Reasonable prices my ass! They're deciding what reasonable is by themselves. "What brings you here?" In response to Priest's question Weed showed his hand wearing the High Priest's ring." Priest grabbed Weed's palm with both hands and started shaking it in a fit of joy. Mavaros Guild started recruiting new members at the entrance to dungeon of Basra. Would that be ok with you?" Weed nodded and was instantly surrounded by lovely priestesses. Weed!" After he parted with Hwaryung and Zephyr. And as the latter ones played a significant role in defense of Odein. "We should raise our levels more sometime later. Freya valued beauty. On the continent of Bersa laws were set by whoever had the power. The lovely priestesses. big bright eyes and white skin. Prosperity Guild was overlooking some of their whims. There were no guilds around Fort Odein stronger than Prosperity Guild and their allies." Initially. Weed left Basra and made his way to the mission of Order of Freya. sprinkled him with holy water and scattered with cheers. located inside the fort." "Oh! The savior of our order! We hoped you would visit us one day. thus all the priestesses of her church were beauties with slim bodies. One priestess exclaimed: "Savior Weed! Our resident priestesses wanted to see you too. They were able to drag a lot of players to their ranks. And if you didn't want to be pushed around. humbled by the opportunity to meet and talk to Weed. the decree wasn't accepted very favorably. but as it always happens. Right after the announcement." "See you around. Paladins of the Order came out to see the hero as well. "I have come to use the portal.
There were few players permitted to use Freya's portals. but he returned in a matter of seconds... Choose whom you fight with yourself!" Weed was yet again standing by the fountain at the Central Square of the Citadel." Weed got bathed by the light from the portal. so Weed didn't have to wait for his turn.. "Show me the road to the portal. For example.The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung You are protected from dark magic.

The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung People’s clothing became more diverse and colourful; their weapons were all new and shiny. A lot of things had changed and Weed didn't feel like he returned home at all. "Weed!" Pale, Surka, Romune and Iren were running towards him with happy faces. "It's been ages!" - exclaimed Surka and tightly embraced Weed. Romune and Irene soon followed their friend and clung to Weed's sides. Weed got deeply moved, though only until he heard the girl's next words: "Irene and Romune are terrible cooks. Weed, I wanted to see you again so much!" "Surka!" "Your Cooking skill! Did you raise it? Quick, make us something tasty... pretty please!" "..." It turned out that girls were stuck to him only because of his great cooking. Surka couldn't forget the taste of his dishes and was impatiently counting days awaiting their next meeting. Having grasped the situation, Weed wasn't disappointed much. It was his first time seeing Pale and girls since they parted in Lavias. "They're so pure... It's worth living in a world where people like them, who don't chase money and accept me as I am, still exist..." Weed gave his friends a heart-warming smile and pulled out cooking utensils. "So, today I'll make you pork fried in batter." "Yay!" Weed did his best to cook a serving for each of the four hungry friends. In just a minute their plates were empty again. Once satisfied, they switched their attention to Weed himself. Even though they've been exchanging 'whispers', it was their first time meeting in person after a long time, so they were dying to know all the details of Weed's adventures. Weed made everyone some more food and started to leisurely retell the story of his travels. "Eh! The most beautiful girl got turned into stone? I wish I could see all of that myself." Irene was a priest, so she was very sorry she wasn't able to participate in the liberation of province of Mora.

The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung "It's a shame my level was too low at that time, but now you can rely on me, Weed! With my level 220 I'll be handy for you Weed, as I'm sure you'll go hunting soon." "Thanks, I'll keep that in mind." - said Weed. "Oh!" - exclaimed Pale after remembering something. - "We often talk to Mapan. He's helping my parents a lot with advices and supplies for their shop.He told you were hunting in dungeon of Basra with Hwaryung." "Yeah. That's true." "Then your current level..." It was obvious that Pale's was worrying, he didn't even finish his sentence. Weed looked straight at him and gave an honest answer: "259." "....." "....." "Che!" - furious Surka gave Weed a jealous glare and moved away from him. At that moment royal guards appeared on the square and surrounded Weed, Pale and the two girls. "What's going on?" "Those people must be criminals." - started gossiping players around the square. Things like that weren't common, so more and more players were becoming curious. "What if..." "Weed, did you kill someone?" Confused, Pale, Romune and Irene were looking at not any less confused Weed. "Hmm... I don't think I did something incriminating in Rosenheim... " He racked his memory, but still couldn't remember anything that could have caused this. Surrounding soldiers stepped aside to let forward a man in knight's outfit, who asked in a loud voice: "Which one of you is the sculptor Weed?" "That would be me, but..."

The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor: Volume 4 By Nam-Hi-Sung Weed warily got up. "King wishes to see you. Please come with me..." Knight's words were a complete surprise for Weed. He didn't expect to meet the King Theodarren himself. "He's lucky! Hurry, we should take some pictures." Clicks started to sound from all directions, indicating that players started to take photos of the event. "Look, the King himself wants to meet that guy! Hey, call everyone else here!"

Sometimes aristocrats did invite adventurers. But usually it was a Baron or an Earl at most. But this time King Theodarren had himself invited some unknown player! Looks like there's nothing to worry about, - thought Weed with a relieved sigh. If it was some crime he committed, soldiers wouldn't be talking to him, but just capturing and delivering to jail or judge. "May I inquire what the reason is?" - Weed asked cautiously. Gears in his head were spinning a dozen times faster than usual. Weed was assessing the situation and calculating possible profit. "I believe King has a request for you. I don't know details; everything will be explained at the palace." - the knight replied. Weed remained calm, but the crowd gathered on the square was in uproar! Surrounding players were excitedly passing knight's words to those who were too far to hear them. "They say the knight brought a request from the King of Rosenheim himself!" "So it's a quest?" "Looks like it." Many jealous, envious and even some threatening stares were directed at Weed. There aren't many people in the world who aren't jealous of others' success. Weed agreed to meet with the king and looked around. The square was overflowing with people, but he still managed to discern a mission of Order of Freya looming in the distance.

"We weren't able to find out where in Lands of Despair necromancers. the priest replied in confusion: "We prepared 50 priests. That's why Weed was allowed to visit the Order before going to the palace. if it's possible. and now wherever players would go.
