Weed’s Arts Center was officially open! The first guests were the Mandol couple who requested the sculpture. And the next day the doors properly opened.

“Weed’s sculptures are in here?”

Morata users were quite interested in Weed’s sculpture. The effects of the light tower and the The Sculpture of Freya were always benefiting hunting so the users looked forward to the Arts Center’s new sculptures.

The admission was 10 gold. For people under level 100 the price was three gold. Prices even applied to mercenary and subordinate NPCs. For groups of 30 or more, they got a 50% discount.. There was signage regarding admission fees starting at the entrance. Student or senior discounts were cold-heartedly denied. However the elderly and students of Royal Road are much more frightening.

“Nothing to do at this old age…Elder Shin what level are you?”

“Around Level 360. Hulhul.”

“You’ve leveled up a lot. Similar to Goo Grannie in the lower town nursing home.”

“No no, I’m a difficult to level magician class. You can’t compare me to her.”

The senior’s children don’t play with them and their grandchildren have all grown up. But that doesn’t mean they should go play all day. From Entertainment to Music, News to Dramas the elderly had experienced it all, but Royal Road was a new world. In reality, their backs would get more crooked and their health would deteriorate however, in Royal Road they could have a new body again.

Because of their overwhelming free time, grandmothers and grandfathers could easily hunt monsters all the time.

“But isn’t the entrance fee too expensive?”

“What kind of Arts Center charges 10 gold for?”

Morata users that had waited since the morning were full of complaints. It was because if they paid and there wasn’t much to see they would regret it.

“Well if its only 10 gold I guess seeing it once wouldn’t be too much of a waste?”

“Well Weed’s amazing sculptures helped a lot with hunting so I guess I’ll see it as repayment and look inside.”

The users bought their tickets and entered the Arts Center. The 5-story building had 2 underground floors and a large garden. The garden was a comfortable space where one could relax and view the sculptures. Sculptures such as bronze statues confessing their love, monster hunting, and bronze bear statues that children liked.

“Sandwiches and meat for sale.”

“Please try the Art Hall meal set.”

The restaurants also opened their doors. They advertised that families could relax as they ate. There was a stage for bards that was already completed, though it currently wasn’t being used.

“Let’s view the Art hall then let’s go.”

“We should see it fast and go hunting.”

Novices and users crowded past the entrance area. They wanted to skip everything and see Weed’s work. From B2 to the second floor was several exhibition space for the other general artists. Well known Morata painters and sculptors now had a place to exhibit their work. Artists up until now had to earn money by selling commissioned works. But with the opening of the Arts Center now it was possible to receive money from admissions. It was an opportunity to show their work to a large audience and artists and sculptors could get their name out.

“Here is my work.”

“Borahum, it’s this way. There’s a black pig sculpture from the east.”

The Morata’s artists at this moment felt a great deal of joy.

“You cannot find another lord that treasures artwork to this extent in all the Versailles continent.”

“Since he himself is a sculptor he probably understands our plight.”

When the Arts Center opened Morata’s fame went up by 60. Morata’s fame went up with winning the war, and dramatically raised its fame with all the cultural achievements. The affiliated artists from Morata that traveled to show off their work received special treatments and privileges.

“A bard of Morata’s production? It must’ve been a long journey. Would you like to come perform at our village? I’ll pay you 20 gold more than your usual rate.”

“If it’s a sculpture of Morata, then they are really popular so they sell well. If the original price is 7 gold, I will pay you 5 gold more.”

Although the north was not yet fully realized, artists felt the rewards from it. But the true value of the Arts Center was they could have their work appreciated. An artwork that is properly displayed gives off an additional 20% increase in certain options and price. It would be preserved in perfect condition so even if time passed they wouldn’t be damaged. Sculpture and paintings by themselves usually could not have cumulative effects, but it differed in the arts center. One sculpture increased the effect of the other, so when fully appreciated it created better advantages when paired. Featured artists had the opportunity to make new bold artworks. The users were content that they could view an array of artworks in one place and felt that the expensive admission could be justified.

“But there’s a lot of empty spaces.”

“Its only the opening so it probably can’t be helped.”

“Since there is empty slots, shouldn’t they have a discount on the admission fee?”

Morata’s artwork couldn’t be displayed without any distinguishing. Each artist only volunteered their work so there was only a few works on display.

The visitors went up to the third floor. It was full of Weed’s little sculptures from traveling around. Monster of every kind from each providence; there was even miniatures of cities. The city of Serabourg in the Rosenheim Kingdom, the Grava mountain range, The city in the sky Lavias, the free city of Somren, and the trek through the Bar Khu mountains. There was also the Yurokina Mountain range in the plains of despair. It was like a miniature version of the Versailles continent was created. Each piece was created during his travels so they weren’t all the same size or quality but each monster, tree, mansion and other works caught the visitors eyes. Since carrying them while traveling was getting harder, they were all put into the Art’s Center.

“A tremendous amount of devotion dwells in these works.”

“There are so many sculptures”

The visitor eyes were filled with wonder as they saw Weed’s sculptures. It was a display of one person’s maximum potential. On the fourth floor, one-third of it was a hall made of glass so you could see inside. There. they were able to view dolls. The sculptures of From Birth to Death, was shown inside the glass displays. It was an impeccable sculpture where a stitch wasn’t out of place. It was created by a large amount of concentration and focus. It wasn’t just about one child’s growth. The viewer could experience and connect with this life. Over time, the possibility of human and the potential for happiness shows life is precious. Looking at the dolls of a person’s life one had a vivid experience of the creation. Family, tears, pain and joy all naturally emulated within the dolls. Most of the visitors read the description of the work first. To fully understand the work, background was essential.

Additionally if you wanted to tell others about the work, it would require information from the description.

- This works display was made by the worthless architect Pavo adjunct with art deputy
Gaston. This is the work of a sincere and humble artist who left no name. The hope is that you it will leave warm and worthwhile feelings that you will remember for the rest of your life.

At the end the description there was a paper sign probably from the first viewer.

‘I am the man who commissioned a sculpture of my unborn daughter. Though I asked the sculptor to make this, truthfully I didn’t have much hope it would be done. I was grasping at straws when I made the request. The commission fee was only 1 copper. The sculptor created this sculpture based on my wife and I. I do not know what everyone will feel as they see this sculpture. But this sculpture has left a moving impression on us. Before seeing this, I felt life could be too cruel and irrational. Thank you for spending this moment in life with me.’

Visitors saw the dolls with reverence. People naturally viewed with appreciation and gratitude.


You have seen a mythical sculpture of an unknown name. Flower of art.
The work could only be called phenomenal. The Sculptor who did not reveal his name expressed his prowess by creating this work entitled From Birth to Death.
Looking at this sculpture will show the blessings of life to the viewer.
For one day:
Health, mana, and stamina recovery rate will increase by 32%.
Health and mana + 36%.
+24 in all stats.
In addition agility and courage will have increase.
Movement speed will increase by 36%. When traveling long distances this effect is higher
From savoring the joy of life vitality + 500 permanently.
Wisdom and knowledge + 2 permanently.
In order to fully understand this work frequent and careful viewing of this sculpture is needed.

The Arts Center’s first floor, second floor kept flooding visitors to the third floor. On the third floor visitors still kept going, but on the fourth floor no one wanted to leave. There was a line of people waiting for other people to leave. They looked at the dolls from birth, to school, to marriage, to having children, to death and heading back to the beginning. That cannot be resorted to life, the most precious things is those hours of happiness. Just like bright precious jewels the hours passed staring at the life. Nobody knows who started clapping, but soon the applause was thunderous.

“Darling, do you want to live here?”

Delfina first suggested after looking at the sculptures of her daughter. Even if she did return to the Central continent she had precious memories of the sculptures to cheer her up. Delfina asked concerned.

“Do you like this place?”

“Yes, I can feel the energy from the people. And it’s there’s adventure. The Central continent is under the concessions of the guilds who are endlessly warring. Considering the political stability the northern conflicts are small. The guilds are also new. People have lots of expedition, and exploration quests. The New products and hunting grounds are overflowing, and it’s really is too beautiful. I think I’d like to settle down here and hunt together like we used to do.”

They moved into a two-story stone house on the outskirts of the Morata district. There are many shacks in Morata so tenancy is high. For the first time parties of people could own a house. The first signs of moving people threw moving parties with food for the new tenants. Everybody who carries something gets something to eat. Houses with vistas were shockingly popular. The view was amazing even if the ceiling popped and cracked and leaked when it rained. Owning a poor shack was amazingly romantic. Women would come home from the Arts Center in tears.



“If these conditions persist than we’ll be hit”

“Slow down!”

Las Phalanx had become bitterly cold. In the harsh cold, large pieces of ice floating around created a dangerous sea.

“Get your head straight. If the ship is damaged we’ll all fall in the water and freeze to death!”

“Fractal, where’s that glacier?”

“10 second, flowing from the right.”

“Preparing to turn to port. As soon as the glacier is past adjust the sails to the wind.”

The sailors hadn’t yet run into the thousands of glaciers only by the grace of god. The natural wonders were beautiful and dangerous at the same time. It was a dangerous voyage that had never been seen before.


As the rest watched the incoming icebergs and fell into a complete panic Weed and Yellowy were sitting and fishing comfortably.

“The Arts Center’s numbers of visitors are increasing exponentially.”

According to Pavo’s report the number exceeds 25,000 visitors a day. People are even lining up at dawn to get in.

‘In a sense the Arts Center is money. The construction cost for this time is significantly less. The other painters, sculptors, and performers should also share in the profits. Nevertheless, it is needless to say that there is a huge surplus from this. And the users in the north would all visit at least once because the sculpture of the girl’s life gave permanent stat increases. The 10 gold will be a burden on the novices but they will soon grow. And when they grow up more they will go to Art center before every time they go hunting.’

In the mean time the sewed leather armor needed by the beginners made money for the craftsman in the process. It was a key source of income and tax trade. However, for a piece artwork you could earn BIG money. For the first time in the history of the Versailles continent there was a revenue structure of the land based around art. It was not even an exaggeration to call it a revolution.

”The power of great art.”

The names of great artists stayed in history for 1 or 2 eras. More visitors creates more works, which creates more money. It was beautiful. Nice. Fantastic. Sublime. The sculptor profession was not poison! Weed laughed even as the icebergs raced towards him.

“If you have visitors visiting once a month then if you raise the price to 13 gold even more money could be made.”


The jawbone was in extreme danger of falling off the crazily laughing skull. Gumeni and Yellowy seemed normal in comparison, but none of the ghost sailors could approach the bony shoulder.

“A good one sir.”

“The ocean is a grave to no one but you.”

The ghost crew had thoughts of pushing Weed in the sea, even though he would probably think of it as taking a bath.

“Kueh, he brought the Maria all this way, We’ll just have to demonstrate our power.”

“The sea is deep. He could just slide out and go missing.”

“The Captain!”

“Captain I now offer you to the sea”

The ghost crew’s loyalty after sailing for a long distance! But they would not soon better the far superior lich out of fear. The Left side was hit! An iceberg plunged into the side of the ship and tore a deep gouge. It was not part of the ghost that was underwater, but the state of the ghost ship had steadily worsened as they went along the waterway. Hye checked the condition of the hull and then said.

“Captain, we might have to suspend navigating to the destination. More and more icebergs are floating along; it’s inevitable that a big iceberg will hit the ship and we’ll immediately sink.”

That an iceberg could hit was intimidating enough. But there was small and large chunks of ice floating in the sea that continued to hit the ship thus accumulating damage. Paradoxically, the seaweed that was stuck to them prevented more damage.

“What should I do then?”

The wide laughing mouth asked. With the admission fee from the Art Center, Weed felt like he was heaven.

’When the ship sinks we can just walk on the glaciers. This region is one big bowl of water. Of course there’s riding on the undead. This area is much more severe than the ice storm that erupted in Morata.’
(PR: I think that Riding on the Undead means Riding on the Large Sea Monsters that Weed can raise)

For tough roads, it is better to think positive thoughts.

“The icebergs are constantly coming from the sea, eventually they will have to stop.”

While laughing he asked.

“Well doesn’t that mean that we’re close to land? If you look at the chart you should see that a large river flows through the land. We’ll be able to get to Las Phalanx through there.”

“Won’t it also be frozen?”

Up north the glaciers are constantly growing. The cold they caught was evidence of the sea freezing. Then of course the rivers would be frozen as well. It would be better to walk than go by boat.

“Wouldn’t be better to walk?”

“I don’t know what the captains thinking.”

“It’s not like you can sail on a frozen river.”

Weed’s quick decision was made with the reasoning that:
‘If you cannot get to Las Phalanx by sea than go by land. Even if you have to skate over the river’

“Go to the river.”

So the ghost ship changed its route, heading for the mainland. They were busy with the increasing amount of icebergs, but eventually they were getting the timing down to avoid the floating blocks of ice. But when they arrived there was no frozen river to be found. Thick, white snow had piled up on the land like mountains, but the river remain unfrozen. The temperature around the ghost ship felt much warmer for some reason. Weed tenderly asked Yellowy.

“Yellowy, are you thirsty?”

Yellowy waited then nodded. He gave water from the warm flowing river a sniff.

“Thank you, master.”

Yellowy put his head in the offered bucket and drank.

“Glug,glug,glug,glug... kya, this water taste good.”

The water had a slight yellow color, but the eyes that were cast toward Weed had little resentment.

“This water is safe to drink is it not. Then is it coming from Las Phalanx?”

If one looked carefully at the Las Phalanx it could be seen that it was a volcanic region. The yellow color was run off from the volcanoes.

“The sulfur taste isn’t too bad.”

“Good, now the boats water supply can be filled.”

After Yellowy’s report Weed started ordering the water barrel to be filled. With the unfreezing river flowing away from Las Phalanx would slow them down, but now there was no need to dodge ice, which was great. The three navigators gathered on the bow.

“He’s a monster coming to this region.”

“What are the levels around this region?”

“I don’t know but nowhere near the beginner levels. From the appearances, nothing is normal.”

Large bodies covered in hair with horns; the monsters were very intimidating. Wild tribes that ran around with axes and ice weapons, crying bloody murder. Users that wanted to land here to hunt would have to be insane. Usually the level of the monsters would be enough to turn one away, but you also had to fight the cold.

“There’s no need to fight recklessly.”

Weed passed by while watching the monsters. The high quality leather obtained would help insulate much better. He could also collect the loot, but it was better to avoid battles where it would be easy to slip on the ice.

“After riding Bingryong I couldn’t fight.”

After riding he caught a cold and was forcefully nursed by Seoyoon. Air combat was out.

“Don’t want to repeat the same mistake.”

Weed focused on fishing the occasional fish and ordered the ghost ship to move on. the closer they got to Las Phalanx , the hotter it got.. Steam puffed out and wrapped around them like a fog. It was like a natural sauna that prevents cold and the like. When the sun shone through rainbows would occur.

“Huh, billions of rainbows!”

“I’m so thirsty.”

The navigators whose strength was lacking from the effect of being frozen for a long time had a violent thirst. They drank water to replenish the sweat that started to flow frequently. Hye was fed up with the matter and said,
“I cant take it anymore. I’m exhausted from these symptoms.”

For the three sailors who did not have the advantages of being undead, the heat was unbearable.

“Tsk, deplorable.”

Weed wrinkled his forehead at the pathetic sailors. Because the navigators were at hand, the ghost ship was moving along pretty fast.

“Well, you do enough to let us live, I don’t think you're being a greedy guy.”

“So we can stop here?”

“Please let us anchor the ship in the river at least once.”

“The symptoms are getting worse and worse. We’re exhausted.”

Weed looked at the three. In the first place their bodies were streaked with sweat, and bony from the days of keeping up with advantaged undead. The three sailors were struggling to beat the heat because of their feeble endurance stat.

“Tsk, weaklings.”

Weeds forehead narrowed further. The three sailors so far had been invaluable since they kept the ship from harm.

“Well, it’s because of you guys that we’ve made it this far. A little selfishness could be indulged. We can anchor here for a little while. And you can get off”

“Then we can go back?”

“Once the ship is docked you can leave and take a look around.”

“I see. Captain!”

The three sailors quickly docked the boat. Weed said,

“You guys docked on the ice so well. Go ahead and get off to cool down.”

“Oh thank you very much”

Hye and Fractal would get off-board, than Board Mir would join them.

‘Once you landed on land we were preparing to escape.’

‘If we left it up to you we would have never been left off’

The three sailors had already made their decision in their hearts. So far they have had numerous bad things committed against them and very few pleasures on the boat. Without them, the ghost ship would have a hard time going anywhere.

“Go drop dead while looking for us.”

“Let them suffer for it properly afterwards.”

The three sailors stiffly climbed down to the icy glaciers all while praying. Once they were on the ice the Maria sails grew wide and their ties to the land were cast off by Yellowy biting them. And the ghost ship began to move away! Weed was at the captain’s seat turning the helm. On the voyage his sailing skills had advanced 7 levels. Now he was at a level where he could comfortably drive the ghost ship. The normally only fishing Captain unabashedly drove the ghost ship!

“Why is the ship moving?”

“Oh man, Captain!”

The greatly persecuted sailors did not also cry out. They were here with the crew.

‘He can’t leave without us.’

“Captain this is the trail. KI hie hihi.”

“Away we go. We can’t count the number of times you helped. Thank you.”


More ghost sailors appeared and threw out dirty lines.

“What the heck. Are we going to be abandoned?”

“But what about our lives?”

The three sailors ran as if their feet were on fire. They ran alongside the ghost ship on the glaciers.

“Please save us!”

“Please give us a ride I’ll do anything that you say!”

Shouted the three iron-hard sailors. The perpetrators felt for the first time that they had become the victims.

Weed said towards them.

“Don’t worry. We are not going to abandon you. Are you not sailors on my ship? Deoreol does not leave family behind.”

“Do you really mean that?”

“Thank you, captain!”

But the ship did not stop. In the end, Weed was not such a person to hold up to such pretty words. Particularly not the one-eyed lich pirate Captain who would not hold onto unnecessary numbers.

“Wait here and I will come back here at a later date.”

“But there are too many monsters!”

“It’d be safer to wait on the boat!”

Weed ignored their words lightly. Because he had an ulterior motive.

“When will you return…What!”

“HAHAHA we got you now! We would have tossed you in the water, but it’s entertaining to see that you’ll never be picked up for a ride. Kueh Ha Ha!”

The crew agreement had been revoked. And soon the new vice captain from the ghost crew was bending at the waist to greet him.

“Yes, captain. Ki hihihi I’ll take the helm.”


From the foggy area to the rainbow land Las Phalanx could be seen! Mountains sat spewing out smoke and lava.

“We are finally here.”

Weed quickly set out to observe the area's monsters. Just a short boat ride revealed many more monsters than the known kinds. Hairy bears roaming around with frozen white skin, leopard like rock-hard bollards that roared unexpectedly. Chaos Warriors, wielding large axes, waiting in the shadows for their prey. Lava spiked where the flame giants were. Their body consisting of mostly lava fire giants! Out of the land, cracked areas spewed out steam. There, fire salamander-like demons and other monsters subject to the firelights lived.

“I seem to have a general idea. The Armenia pirates may have come up the unfreezing river.”

There was no evidence of Armenia pirates in sight. Weed anchored the ghost ship and went down the rope to check out the monsters. It was at that moment.


Adventurers have arrived at Las Phalanx.
Whether the heroic adventurers live or die is a gamble. This Land that has only remained as part of the Versailles history books has been practically forgotten. If you did not visit the goddess of earth you should leave rather than remain in oblivion for a long time.

The blessing of the goddess of the earth. Usually the goddess blessing are discriminating among certain races, and were considerably weaker. From the prosperity to abundance of crops, it can also help defeat enemy forces. In shows of display Freya is a bit on the downside. But the blessing given by the goddess of the earth had a very long duration.

“It’s extremely helpful for the next five days”

Weed, for once, was delighted by the rewards. He quickly moved his body looking among crevices.

“Cave! Need to find a cave.”

Obtaining a safe haven was the core of exploring and hunting.


The Black lion guild, Red Mercenaries chiefs, Red dragon guild, The Hammer and Anvil guild, the Pro-Am Mercenary guild union and 89 other large prestigious held a guild meeting.

“Then you all agree to the formation of the hegemonic alliance. Any against?”

It was a meeting of all the important guilds masters! All the other prestigious guilds nodded their heads.

“We approve.”

“…There’s no reason for us to reject.”

Hegemony alliance. All of the Versailles continent’s prestigious guilds trying to hedge under one fence.

“Next month the official proclamation will be stated on the first. The hope is after a week’s time the individual judgments will come forward. I will leave that up to each of you.”

All the guild masters held delighted smiles. Any guild included in the hegemony alliance was primed for supremacy and armed to kill any external threats; it was a secured timeout! The Alliance did not erase all the hostilities between the guilds, but now most of that would be handled behind the scenes. It secured that any guild not included in the alliance would have tough time attacking a guild or a castle. It would be difficult for any group to survive that was not included in the hegemony alliance; to survive once the full-scale territorial expansion began. There were two or three small prestigious guilds capable of attacking and winning over a territory, but they would almost never be able to hold on to it in the Central continent. This alliance was far more favorable for defense, since even if they have the power to take them over individually the result would be different the minute reinforcements arrived. BardRay and the Hermes guild lead this Alliance guild, as the most predominant and most prestigious guild. He became the chairman of the hegemony alliance and was given exclusive rights to the Kingdom of Haven. There were a lot of ordinary users who came for tourism in the Versailles continent. The prestigious guilds were in a position to take care of the exclusive rights of hunting, item trading, and commercial taxes. The raising of glass was heard all around.

“This year belong to the supremacy of the Hegemony Alliance”

The Masters of the prestigious guild raised their glasses a little higher.

“For the Versailles continent!”

“For our Alliances supremacy!”

  1. BardRay: Now that the alliance is formed. Ahem~..... I order the domination of Morata and the death of its lord.

    1. that would be soooo like that sore loser HardGay -___-

    2. hardgay hahahahahhahhaha that made my day hahahahahha

    3. As far as being one of the best players on a game, I have experience. I was the best player in VanRO back in the days.

      Speaking from this perspective, BadRay just doesn't seem to be an elite type. Elite players generally want to be the strongest on their own. Guilds are fine, but strong players don't use guilds to claim supremacy. If BadRay were really a strong player, he wouldn't rely on his guild's power. He would just challenge Weed to a duel to determine the strongest. That is the strongest's pride on any game. Relying on others to kill another is just ridiculous and gay.

    4. I've never been the strongest, but I've played a lot of games, from the perspective of someone who has been in alot of gaming communities, I agree with you. A player who uses a whole guild to take down one player would never be considered the strongest by the everyone else. Bardrays action would more likely be looked at as a sign of cowardice and weakness.

    5. Uh, Guys, Bard Ray challenged and lost to Weed in Continent of Magic five times, so this is his attempt on The Loser's Revenge.

    6. BardRay never was the strongest in C of Magic. it was his guild that was the strongest. his pride was broken when weed raped him 5 times half when he had lower equip and lvl than Bardray.

    7. BardRay is a coward, at the moment he has the highest level, this is giving him a false sense of security, that he is the strongest. if he was to challenge weed and loose this would prove that he is less skilled then weed. so i think he is in denial about how strong weed is to give him self confidence, he is trying to belittle weed proving that he dose not have to fight him, going along the lines of "he cant handl my guild mates, he cant handle me" line of thought.

    8. You people are ridiculous. The reason Bardray doesn't go after Weed is because he has better things to do and doesn't think it's worth his time. He'd crush Weed one on one. Also Bardray was noted as the strongest on CoM before Weed started playing so he was the strongest. He also managed to escape Weed the first time they met.

    9. Sadly Corey, that is incorrect. If he truly felt he could actually kill Weed, he wouldn't be sitting like a pussy sending pirates to kill the MC while he's out at sea.

    10. It's not incorrect. You people are just deluded. It was specifically said that Bardray couldn't leave the country because of guild business(taking full control of Haven Kingdom). Saying he's afraid of Weed because of that is absurd nonsense. As a leader of his guild he can't just go off to hunt down Weed when the clan is about to start a war. His level was 447 when Weed was in Kuruso. That's 20 levels above Seoyoon who Weed is afraid of. It's also said that Bardray hunted monsters on a similar level of the Imoogi before. There is no question that in a one on one battle Weed would be destroyed by Bardray. It probably wouldn't even be a fight. Weed would need his pets or summons to fight him.

      The difference between a real MMO and RR is that you can't claim hunting grounds in regular MMOs and prevent people from improving. Joining a guild if you're not in Morata seems like common sense. Also not everyone has a class that allows you to learn all the crafting classes.

    11. At the very least Weed would need to use sculpture destruction.

    12. Well, weed would need his pets. That much is given, but his "pets" were given life due to his class' skill, they are literaly walking skills, so it's still safe to say that one on one weed would trash bardray.

    13. ...Corey, what? Weed uses Sculpture Destruction anyways, it's not frequent but it's not uncommon either. And if BardRay really wasn't scared of Weed he would wait until he could leave the Kingdom of Haven and duel Weed. Instead he's hirining everyone and their mother to kill Weed FOR him. In layman terms, he's a pussy ass bitch. And levels don't mean everything. Weed most likely has superior stats, skill in combat, and is infintely more cunning than BardRay. And whoever claimed Weed would fight fairly? He would summon spirits, use Moonlight Sculpting for defense, summon Death Knight Hawk, trick BardRay, etc. Hell, BardRay isn't actually the strongest in Royal Road. Twenty bucks says that Seoyoon or even Geomochi (the original) can take him. If they really pushed themselves MAYBE Geomochi #2-5 can take him.

    14. Nah. Weed's pets are a result of his skills but it's completely inaccurate to say that they aren't their own people. Weed gave them life and now they have lives of their own. They can reproduce, think, and move on their own will. They are completely independent of Weed in terms of maintenance. To say that fighting a duel with them is fighting one on one is a ridiculous stretch.

      For the second guy. Nope. You can't state what you would do as if it is the only possible scenario. Bard Ray has no reason to leave Weed alone until he can challenge Weed to a duel. He has no reason to think that Weed would accept a duel. He wants to crush Weed now and that's what he's doing. It was specifically said that he'd be going after Weed but he couldn't leave. It has nothing to do with fear until stated otherwise. I like how you say that Bard Ray's a pussy for not challenging Weed to a duel but then go on to say that Weed wouldn't fight fairly. Is Weed a pussy too? Common sense doesn't equal being a pussy.

      Levels don't mean everything but they're a good indicator of skill and equipment you can wear. People who don't know how to fight tend to fall behind as they don't level as quickly in the game. Bard Ray(like Seo Yoon) thus learned how to fight in the game. Bard Ray has completed the advanced training hall and has fought many high level monsters. Bard Ray likely has powerful abilities and unique equipment of his own. Also don't forget that warriors classes improve their stats by fighting tough opponents. As it is right now Bard Ray would probably crap all over Seo Yoon and Geomochi. You don't seem to realize that he's like SeoYoon+. He's an extremely good player(second best to Weed in CoM), with an extremely high level, that has extremely good equipment, good skills, and most likely a secret or 3rd tier class. Weed would be destroyed by Bard Ray in a one on one likely even if he uses sculptural destruction. He's being hyped for a reason. Do remember that Bard Ray hasn't been shown fighting yet so saying he'll lose to people weaker than Weed makes no sense.

    15. Lol i really cant wait til the chapter where weed wrecks bardray comes out but id weed does lose 1v1, props to you

    16. I'm not saying that Weed will never be stronger than Bardray 1v1 just that he clearly isn't right now.

    17. There is vary little info about badray so its is pointless to even ague this, but weed would kick badray so hard he'd have no Haven to hide in

    18. if only weed play royal road like when he play CoM, he will be much badass.

    19. Oh boy.. Who said that he using his pets to fight bardray is unfair? Of course not. Because Weed's class is sculptor, so it's only natural for him to use his pets from the sculptures he had made..

    20. Nobody. You just didn't read properly. I said that using his pets wouldn't be considered fighting one on one.

    21. Corey1873 ofc it would, if he were let's say knight class he would raise his lvl like insane instead of sculpture mastery and art stats... And for example necromancer uses undead to fight, in 1 on 1 he is weak against melee if he cant use his main skill - raising undead. It's same as weed's skill.

    22. The difference is that when a necromancer brings undead to life they're still connected to him. They drain his magic and are probably being strengthened by his presence. He can blow up their bodies, completely control them, or send them back to death any time he wishes. On the other hand Weed's sculptures could be considered as his children and share a similar relationship with him. Their existence is entirely independent of him. The only connection they have to Weed is that as their "father" they're loyal to him. Thus Weed fighting with his sculptures can not be considered as fighting solo. They are independent allies of Weed like Alveron who just happen to have a ridiculously large loyalty to him.

      Now the elemental spirits that Weed gave form to, Van Hawk, and Tori? Those can be considered as just skills of Weed in a one on one as there actually is an active connection between them.

    23. Well.. Weed would still win, he could just use sculpture destruction AND if Weed dies in battle, he ressurrects as an undead with 3 times as much health as before and improved stats, weed could also change his class in the middle of the fight (Sculpture shapeshifting) aka for example to a necromancer, he can even change into a winged type now, cause his Sculpture understanding is intermediate for a while now, when Bardray use up all his stamina vs. weed undead's ressurection with infinite stamina, bardray looses. And if comparing skill, Weed is ahead of him.

    24. This comment has been removed by the author.

    25. But would that be enough? You're thinking of Bardray was just some mook. When hit hard enough people get status debuffs like paralysis. It's very likely that Bardray hits hard enough to do so. Limitless Stamina probably won't make a difference in a duel since they're not opponents of the same level. Bardray likely has ranged attacks and so a winged type probably isn't that helpful. Comparing crafting skills Weed is probably ahead of him. Sword Mastery and other combat skills? Who knows?

    26. Corey1873, all you do is dick ride a fictional character, at the moment,.they won't fight, so arguing that Weed would lose is pointless. First off, weed is mc, so unless this is pokemon, he would barely if not, never lose.

    27. That you're retarded and can't read properly doesn't mean I'm dick riding. Saying MC automatically wins because he's the MC is also dick riding. Using logical reasons to say that a one on one fight between a Sculptor and a very skilled melee fighter 50+ levels higher than him probably goes to the melee fighter is not. In story Weed is afraid of fighting Seoyoon who is much closer to his strength than Bard Ray is. Extrapolating from that that Bard Ray has the advantage is common sense.

    28. holy crap srsly guys? raytard is a punk ass bitch but atm he could easily kill weed 1v1. It is clearly said his items are top class ALL items. He also has combat experience like weed in RL AND he has hit advanced at the training halls <==== THE MOST important part because its not easy getting to advanced. Its hard to say if using his life sculptures is a true 1v1 but i would have to say it is. Reason being because its clearly a skill for his class doesnt mean shit if they move independently because in the end they obey there master who created them. Even using death knight would be ok, all i am saying is atm regardless weed would lose an a lot of that has to do with because he started way later than bard. But bard is still a bitch look at his history he creeped on Continent of Magic and then wanted to regain his pride as most powerful only to get his shit kicked in like a bitch (then again i dont think he was trying to start shit with weed). Either way bet you ANYTHING he would of went around talking shit if he won even tho he was a creeper, but losing like a hoe and coming back for more then he ran away COME ON RLY? bet you not a single person in his guild knows.

      He gets all the best shit and all the experience using meatshields haha the dude has his own personal guard bhahaha he is a punk ass bitch compared to weed no question and no this isnt dick riding cuz personally weed pisses me off half the time because he still thinks seoyoon is evil cuz hes reTARded and if it wasnt for the sculpture of life and death he would be the worst in everyway possible even though he had boots on his mind most of the time. He still didnt hesitate to help when it came to ppl and there fam.

      After this S class mission tho weed can easily defeat barbitch. Oh ya almost forgot the fact that he sent his personal general in his place wasnt bad but once he got the pirates involved and his history included, the guy is shit.

      PPL need to understand that weed secluded himself on CoM and let out his stress from real life i mean the kid was working for as long as he can remember and being treated like shit and still harassed by sharks. But ppl still butt hurt about CoM oh well bardtard is going to get wrecked.

    29. Also if they fought to the "death" 1v1 and weed died and his skill activated and then he won would u guys consider it a win or loss? I say win. So its hard to say what skills can be used in a 1v1 that is something they would have to discuss but im sure ray would be the first bitch to be like "noooooo waaaaah booohoo u cant use those sculptures waaaaah" Either way weed will be on top once he catches up, tho that damn vacation was to long.

    30. I aggree with corey. Although I think Weed will eventually beat BardRay, Weed is clearly no match for him in this chapter, if they fight now.
      BardRay doesn't go out of his way to finish Weed himself because he doesn't think of it as something necessary, he thinks that a man of his caliber need not finish Weed himself. He thinks mercenaries and the like are enough, that's why. (At least that's what I think, so let's respect each of our own opinions, okay?)

    31. Corey, If Weed's sculptures isn't considered a skill, then his class doesn't really have any skills.
      Weed's sculptures are part of his skillset and are basiclly just another skill/tool in his toolkit. Without them LMS is a shitty class.
      PS. It clearly says that Weed learned a new skill (Giving life to his sculptures) at the start of the LN, so if his sculptures isn't considered a skill then why is it catagorized as such?

    32. You're kind of missing the point I was making, Magnum. It was that creating the sculpting were a skill, bringing them to life is a skill, but after that they're fully independent NPCs similar to solders. They just have a high level of loyalty. Weed doesn't have any supplementary skills to control them(like a Necromancer does with his undead) so they could actually turn against him and help kill him if they truly wanted to. Because of this I'm considering them as somewhat independent of Weed and not a skill.

    33. Lol, your not reading it carefully. It clearly says the sculpture cannot betray him and their attitude are bad bc of weed. And using a sculpture that have life is harder to control than necromancer absolute command. Your such an IDIOT pls change your way of thinking tsk.
      And saying using sculpture with life is not 1v1 is such a nonsense Shitty!. The sculpture are strong due to his grinding mentality if not it would be extremely weak! Why are you acting like your playing this game, feeling of what ? Or acting smart retard!

    34. Where does it ever say that the sculptures can't betray Weed? I'm pretty you literally just made that up while you're tsking. Do you remember when Weed attacked the Embinyu church's fort? The sculptures refused to follow him into battle and had to be convinced by Weed to fight. Do you remember when Yellowy was born and Weed had to threaten it to fight? The statues are born loyal to Weed but it's never said that their loyalty is infinite.

    35. Being a sore loser implies that you've lost. Seeing as this is an opinion based argument it's kind of hard to lose. Acting like a 12 year old and throwing around childish insults doesn't make your argument any stronger.

      Let me tell you something about common sense. Something being threatening doesn't necessarily make you afraid of it. If I think that a dog may tear up my lawn I don't need to be afraid of the dog even if it's a threat to my lawn. We were given a direct motive for Bardray's actions against Weed. If Bardray himself gives reasons why he's going after Weed then you don't really get to come in and spout nonsense about him being afraid of Weed. It's stupid. He's clearly not afraid of Weed. Get over it.

    36. Hahaha, Weed will be ultimate winner no matter what. He's got the author's backing. Simple as that. No matter how many times he is defeated(wonder when that'll be...-_-) Weed will be the ultimate winner. Plot armor is just that strong. No other explanation needed.

    37. Um corey all of your assumptions are based on the fact that by completing the advanced swordsman training Bard Ray is in the same league as Weed. Even the Geomchi practitioners completed that.
      Also Seo Yoon didn't complete the training and yet her stats are on the same lvl because if her battles.
      Bard Ray only focused on his lvls. In the dungeons it ws specifically stated that he uses his guild to lvl up. So on an one on one battle he couldn't hold up to Weed. Stat wise Weed would only be 10/5 lvls lower than Bard Ray. His skill set are also above average. His real time swordsman experience could take on anyone with advanced swordsman skill. Also Geomchi (Ah Hyun Do) said he limits himself in fighting because otherwise the game would become too easy. So you can infer from that how much real experience is worth.
      And as for using his pets, how is that not one on one? He created them so they are part of his skillset as long as he can control them. It was stated that Elementalists also face the problem of unruly elements with personality. And Death Knight Van he earned through a quest so how is he different from another summoned unit? In RR every npc and summoned unit has its own personality.
      Finally the light wings gives him flight and he has a High elf bow. In a duel he could just fly and shoot down arrows. Also his equipments are all high class, almost on the level of 450 which he can use due to his blacksmithing proficiency. He has Talos Armor, the pauldron given by Fabio, the mithril and black iron boots, death knight helm and vampire cape. His sword is also very unique. His swordsman skills are also really outstanding like the moonlight sculpting blade and the emperors 5 skills.AND he has death resurrection ability.
      So if Bard Ray and Weed had one ultimate showdown then Weed would win at any given time. But right now when its just a duel Weed would lose because he will never use his pets in a lowly duel neither will he use his valuable armors which could drop if by chance he lost. Its only Bard Ray who thinks the duel is important. To Weed it would be just an inconvenience.

    38. No, I'm not. I never said that his skill was in Weed's league. I was making a point that he's a decent fighter. The Geomchi practitioners are considered elite fighters in RR so I don't see your point.
      It's never said that Bardray only focused on levels. What does relying on a guild to level up even mean? He parties with his guild? So what? That doesn't mean he'll be helpless without them.
      You're assuming that Bardray doesn't get bonus stats often too. You're ignoring the affect of equipment.
      Weed's statues are more subordinates than pets. It's like Bardray pulling in all the soldiers he trained. I would say that Elementals are certainly his skill set because they use his mana. Van Hawk and Tori are more skills as well. The point wasn't just personalities, it was about freedom of action. His statues can tell him no and refuse to obey him if they want to. Literally the only reason they listen to Weed is because they think of him as a parent.
      You're assuming that Bardray has no ranged attacks.
      Nope, Most of the stuff you're mentioning is incredibly low leveled stuff. That Weed can use high leveled stuff doesn't mean he has any. He's been using the Talos armor since beating Tori.
      If they fought a duel as of now Weed would certainly lose without his summons and maybe even with some of them. You seem to only think that only Weed has good stuff.

    39. Lmao with his dirtman and fiery pebbles, his pheonix, bingryong, yellowy, lighht wing, imuugi, hydra, wyverns, van hawk, sculpture destruction, i think weed would win, and he would do it cuz bardrays drops would be worth it

    40. Corey let me tell you why the sculptures would in fact count, since the they were created by the skill give sculpture life which costs mana and art points its considered as a part of him, the soldiers bartray might train is not considered as a skill and weeds give sculpture life is a skill, now you would complain that they would just betray him if they can but let's look at the
      truth will they betray him? So its considered perfectly fine in 1v1 to use the sculptures. And weed will win almost 99% of the times since he can just create more sculptures to counter bardrays combat.

    41. What it costs to create them is irrelevant. The relationship between them is what determines if they're independent or not. They're treated as more children of Weed as opposed to skills of Weed. To say that they're skills of Weed to give actual reasoning for it as opposed to saying "because I said so". Whether they will betray Weed isn't nearly as important as asking if they have the ability. The fact that Weed had to threaten Yellowy to fight shows that they don't have to listen to him. As of yet he doesn't have any skills that gives him any control over them.

    42. I feel like so many people are missing the main point which is that a true victory is uniting the continent and becoming Emperor. It has been clear that Bardray has been working towards that. Taking over the Kingdom of Haven is the first step and the alliance will have an effect towards that also. Weed hasn't been shown to be considering such things since we were told of the ultimate goal.

      Of course Bardray is threatened by Weed, considering how Weed has taken over the North and his growing popularity, he can easily be a contender to be Emperor. To try and knock his out of the competition before he grows stronger is simply a smart tactic. Due to the end goal guilds and alliances are smart options to improve your chances.

      Weed can't play the same way he did in CoM, although he may be the strongest player his chances of becoming Emperor would be slim to none. Weed simply wouldn't be able to take on the whole continent by himself. However he has created "friends", established a town and is on the path to leading the rebirth of an empire which, I assume, will leave him in control of the entire North. He is essentially creating forces to help him fight the Central continent.

      Also all this talk about Bardray being petty, unfair and should fight 1v1 sounds ridiculous. Like have people forgotten Weed's character? Or have people become delusional like the dancer girl? Weed is basically the definition of petty and unfair. He will use any and all cheap tricks to ensure victory. If Weed was in Bardray's position he possibly would do the same, however Weed simply doesn't even see Bardray as a threat right now.

    43. Are all of you idiots?
      ''Bardray is scared of Weed''
      No... He's the strongest of his Guild. He can't just go off hunting someone 200 levels below him just because of pettiness. He's needed by his guild to take over the kingdom of Haven, and he's busy grinding levels and gear.

      Have any of you played an MMO?
      The sheer level difference would render all of Weeds attacks to miss or be dodged, blocked, parried, countered.

    44. Reading the replies on this comment gave me more enjoyment than this chapter. xD

  2. so.... seeing the sculpture will give u 500 vitality permenantly... is the vitality mean HP . or give u 500 vitality surely will be ovepowered. even weed only got around 600 if im not mistaken.

    1. I think the sculpture increase hp 500 point

    2. the sculptor increases hp by 500. vitality is a stat that affects hp and stamina but if it got increased by 500 the hp would go up by much more than 500 and it's also equivalent to 100 levels of stat points, so there's no way it could be that. even the mages would be juggernauts

    3. Reading all the fucking stats is the same as being trolled by the author and translators. Many have different numbers in their translation and the author just gives out a random number for all the stats and just mainly focus on his level of skills and profession. If I were you, it's better to just not try understanding all that xD After all, there is so many of them and wethere it's correct or incorrect u get the point that he is getting something

  3. newbies will surely benefit greatly from 500 hp...
    from chapter two... weed hp at lv 1 is only 100 hp... +500 will be really huge and broken...
    they will collect 10 gold dilligently and spent it on seeing the statue as soon as possible.
    no reason anymore to start at other city...

    1. newbie doesnt have a huge money in the start like how weed and yurin start they only have a small amount of silver...

    2. Around level 30 you can get an hp of around 600 (Newbie hp plus bonus 500), but a plus 500 wouldn't really do a think to Weed's hp at 32000 or so.

      Besides, you can't start at that city. Did you forget that going to that city is considered pretty much certain death? You get rewards on par to those of discovering a new dungeon just for making it there. A level of around 250 could be considered average there, and at that level, 500 wouldn't be much of an impact.

      Also, earning 10 gold is incredibly hard for new people. Base salary for a Rosenheim Centurian (Commands 100 men, possible to get into the Red Guard, etc.) Only earns 3 gold a month. It is incredibly hard to scrape up 10 gold for newbies. Can't understand? Ill put it into a Geomchi's terms. 10 gold is 3300 pieces of barley bread.

    3. Also, new players get 2 copper.

      100 copper is a silver

      100 silver is a gold.

    4. Can't start at what city? You can't mean Morata, right? But I have no idea where else you would be talking about. That city has become a great place to start at. And is also great for higher levels too.

    5. Morata became a place where people can choose to start Royal Road, once Weed started to expand it. For the people not reading diligently: Newcomers only pay 3 Gold and groupfs of 30 get a 50% dicount, which means that intelligent newcomers can visit for 1,5 Gold. Consodering how incredibly easy hunting became in the region of Morate( Thanks to the gigantic buffs of sculptures) earning mones in morata is for Newbies way easier than in any other start.city

    6. I believe the entrance fee was 3 gold for users under level 100 so all this argument is pointless

    7. Weed had that much life because of the 4 weeks training. Newbyes would't have that much life at lvl 30 so yes, the 500 hp and stats would be a huge bosst to them.

    8. @Jin Mori
      The more, the better. There is no such thing as enough stats. Weed himself is happy with even a surplus of 2 points in his stats. every time he gains stats he thinks it's helpful and it is. Even if I had the lich hp, around 120k, I would be extremely happy with a HP surplus and 500 is not small at all. Anyone would want that, even HardGay.

    9. HardGay would want that. And Morata was said to be a very popular starting place, as opposed to what one of the previous comments stated.

    10. HardGay would want that. And Morata was said to be a very popular starting place, as opposed to what one of the previous comments stated.

    11. huh? 500 is not a lot maybe for someone who isnt even a support class at the start. He starts with 100 then gets another 100 after hitting scarecrow he also gets +1 to vit not sure if that was included. Regardless 500 to heath is not a lot at all i wonder if that includes other statues like for example one statue might give u +200 and then when u see that one does it give +500 as well?i know they dont stack for adventure purpose. Either way its not a lot unless you are a beginner but thats a given i mean in RL even in our mmo's we give newly created players +exp bonus so they can somewhat catch up to ppl who have been playing for 1 2 or going on 3 years. So who cares, at level 13 he had 960hp(as a sculpture) the way i see it new players get a boost that will help them survive better as support classes. Cuz rly tanks, barbs, paladins, knights and the like all have retarded health as they level up. Point is past lvl 50 500 hp = shit unless you are support class.

    12. an honestly level 50 dont me crap when players are halfway to 500!!!!

    13. totally forgot this major point but unless you start there do u know how hard it is to get to the north? You have to see the statue to get the bonus guys... this just gives another reason why ppl should start another character(if even possible), so they can switch or try artist classes.

  4. Only 1.5 gold if you are under level 100 and in a group of 30 it is affordable

  5. also, i think one of the other statues he made (i think in morata) had a similar hp buff of 4 or 5 hundred, which means that newbies could get almost 1k hp bonus for just looking at statues.

  6. Did I miss something? Where are Mandol and his wife's reactions to the sculpture? Last we heard Architect Pavo was letting them in to be the first viewers, and apparently it completely skips their reaction, to now it's open to the general public..

    1. They didn't explicitly state it, but the statues moved them enough that they decided to move to Morata to be close to them and try to fix their relationship.

    2. The sign in front of the sculptures did show that they cared enough to write it down.. and they liked the towns atmosphere enough to move there to start adventuring again, and females came out crying after reading the sign and watching the sculptures, they obviously cared..

      Are you not reading everything or?

    3. Yeah. Read it right!

      They wrote a note! A note!

      They're really not reading anything properly. Tsk.

    4. Still, I expected a bigger reaction than a note. Or a scene showing it.

    5. Still, I expected a bigger reaction than a note. Or a scene showing it.

    6. The scene is missing where mandol and his wife see the doll sculptor for the first time.
      I know there is a scene because right now i am re-reading LMS, thats why i know the reaction to the sculptor missing. I cant remember if it should have been in this chapter or the previous one.

    7. Anonymous from april30 2015, could you please say where you read LMS before? I want to read the full version.

  7. "his sailing skills had advanced 7 levels"
    ???? um which is it? the level +7?, or become [Advanced Sailing Lv7]?

    1. The level +7.

    2. So he hit Intermediate, then got one level, and now he got another 7, putting him at Intermediate level 9.

  8. Wait... can a skeleton's forehead narrow?

    1. its like when party met Lich-Weed for the 1-st time
      *Mapan looked at skeleton eyes, and said - "Its Weed!"*
      what eyes? lol .......... and he has only 1 eye-socket visible because of eye-patch

    2. Glowing lights for eyes. You can tell it's Weed because it a glowing money sign.

  9. So which game are we talking about that look like to have royal road game feature? :D

  10. Morata is like Prontera

  11. I hope that coward BardRay challenges Weed to a duel but then Seoyoon would step in and accept the challenge and beat him. Then Weed can play his cool card like: "You can't even beat her, you are no match for me. Weakling" or something. Just to crush that pathetic pride that he has.

    1. Omagad !! This made my day(night) ! Thank you xDD

  12. I hope that coward BardRay challenges Weed to a duel but then Seoyoon would step in and accept the challenge and beat him. Then Weed can play his cool card like: "You can't even beat her, you are no match for me. Weakling" or something. Just to crush that pathetic pride that he has.

  13. I wanna kill weed over and over again. hes very annoying.

  14. Granted it's just a LN about VRMMORPG but still there is a lot of inconsistencies .Just imagining that Yurin is allowed to go anywhere and practise her skill against any creatures is off the chart OP and the same goes for Weed.The shapeshifting skill alone serves the story well considering that lots of whiny Players would rain on his parade if not for that skill.

    There is just one thing that seems to be forgotten : it is just a game so if you take down a player , he respawns 24hours later after loosing maybe an item . And if you're against a revengefull player, is out for blood and rain on your parade. If only a kill was definite , Bardray wouldn't take the risk.

    1. Weed is OP because he got a secret class as opposed to others who chose their classes straight away. Yurin also chose a secret class but hers isn't op because it doesnt have any combat features yet. Weed also got many exceptional items and abilities through his quests.
      In reality games do make you op the farther you go. Just not in mmos. But I think the creator of RR added this so that an emperor would be truly OP.

    2. No, he's not. Weed is OP because of the effort he put into his class. His class is only a little different from a normal sculptor. Those differences are that he gets a stat bonus at under the moonlight, he gets twice the stats for leveling up his sculpting skill, and he can sculpt moonlight better. Everything else can be learned by other classes. Think about moonlight sculpting blade/sculpting blade. Weed learned the skill before he ever became a sculptor. Skills are rarely locked by class but by skills learned. So any sculptor can learn all the secret skills that Weed has. It really doesn't even need to be a sculptor. Weed could teach his sister all of his secret sculpting skills if she picked up sculpting.

  15. I have a question.

    Do you think Weed abandoned the 3 navigators only because he knew of their bad reputation and felt that it was okay to give them a taste of their bad medicine?

    Reading this chapter, it seems like something Weed would not do. I mean, sure, he's petty and greedy for gold, but he usually honor agreements he made, right? So abandoning his own crew doesn't seem like the sort of thing he would do.

    Feels weird after reading this chapter...

    1. He probably knew they were scheming against him.
