The book starts off with pedestrians avoiding a weird stranger crying and jumping on the streets. Predictably, this person is Weed, who is lamenting over the fact that his Ice Dragon sculpture was left behind once he teleported out of Mora. After determining that it’s a cruel, callous world, he walks back to the Church of Freya with Ron Alves being a bit shocked at the crazy man he thought he knew so well, and then he returns the Crown taken from Tori, servant of the Lich King Bar Khan. Weed receives 1200 fame, a rise in 31 familiarity with the church, as for the church, Freya gains a 2,200 increase in influence, with a total of 4612 influence. Weed’s level rises by 9 and he receives 30 health potions and holy water vials. It then goes on to explain how health potions were extremely expensive but also extremely useful in a pinch seeing as it is pretty much an instant-use item. He then receives a Wyvern Leather belt which gives +7% to engraving (and some small bonuses +10 to +30) to agility, attractiveness, strength, and reputation). Weed’s slightly disappointed because due to the lack of engravers, the price for the belt would only be about $10. whereas the value of the Crown is unimaginable, In addition, he also receives a guarantee of free treatment and free teleportation gates at any Freya chapel. The Head Priest then mentions how he hears rumors of Necromancer activity in the Plains of Despair, and then asks Weed to investigate and slay the necromancers under the refuge of the Dark Elves. Weed accepts the B Rank quest and is advised to go to the Rosenheim kingdom for more information and to pick up supporting units for the quest. He then comments on how the Plains of Despair is almost off the map, with only its edges explored and virtually completely unknown. After PMing (private messaging) Mapan and meeting up with him, he finds Mapan with a stunning lady, who is introduced to be Hwaryeong a Dancer (similar to a Bard class except for dancing instead of singing). She usually dances and sends any monsters they encounter into a stupor and then runs away on Mapan’s carriage. Hwaryeong then expresses surprise at how Weed was an engraver while Mapan whispers to Weed how the dance that Hwaryeong uses to paralyze and stupefy the monsters is the “bubibubi” (Korean Strip Dance). Then, the group heads for Liberty City.
