Chapter 8: Announcement


“I wonder what Lucas is doing right now?...”

Lilianne sighed as she relaxed on her chair.

She works at a night shift for the company that made the [Portal] and [World Gate Online].

As for why nightshift, that is because most players play during their sleep.

Her job is simple. To guide new players through creating their characters and when asked for the tutorial.

Though at first she was working almost nonstop, now, there is only a few couple of new players every day so she’s really not needed to keep attending.

Other than that, she monitors the statuses of a range of players in case someone calls for a bug.

Well, considering how no one has asked for that yet since the game launched, you can say that a bug is very very rare to happen and thus, she really does not need to monitor them.

But still, she still chose to attend her work simply because she’s having fun monitoring a certain boy’s status.

Lucas.

This white-haired boy has piqued her interest ever since the start.

After all, this boy did something that no one has ever done before, to raise the stats before even playing.

To be able to see that loophole when even the creator managed to miss, who cannot say he is not interesting?

She thought it was really a shame that he picked [Drachedge] as the starting town which was located at the southern kingdom whereas she was in the northern.

When his level spiked by a margin, she immediately reported it to her boss Trask who wanted to find the interesting players.

Then Pearce joined, which being his blabber mouth character made almost everyone in the building know of Lucas, all of them became interested at the boy who was able to be the first player to see a dragon.

It was a shame that he didn’t manage to defeat it though, but still, the outcome is still very much amazing.

The rewards he got were also high rank.

A few days later, Lucas’ adventure turned into a movie which made most of the people take interest in him.

Though he probably didn’t know, but Trask also released the movie to other countries so he should also be well known in the world now.

To be able to be the first to notice Lucas, Lilianne was very proud at herself and probably started to have a complicated feeling towards him.

Then, a few days after he got out of the cave and started his journey to [Drachedge], he finally got a hold of [Skill Tree Books] where he surprised all of them.

After all, he didn’t choose any offensive skills, rather, he chose appraisal and mastery skills who knows where he needs all of them. As for magic, he only chose the very basic magic which is also the one in the tutorial.

Of course Lilianne also has them, but not all of them, since this magic unlocks the stat for proficiency in the element, she only chose one to focus on and didn’t really focused on levelling it up.

Not only that, but his other job is a [Painter].

At that point, Lilianne stopped trying to understand his intentions, next time, she’ll just ask directly. Thinking about it will only tire herself after all.

Then suddenly, news of the [White Haired Adventurer] was seen in almost all gaming forums.

There were a lot of different views on it but they all have one thing in common, the [White Haired Adventurer] has turned into a criminal and is being chased.

Whether it was a quest or not, they didn’t know so Lilianne brought this info to Trask to check whether Lucas got the quest or not.

The answer, he didn’t.

That means there’s either a misunderstanding, or he really did become a criminal.

Believing in Lucas, Lilianne and the rest tried to find out the cause.

It would seem that Lucas protected a slave who tried to break in the palace.

There was also a picture attached.

Looking closely, even though the slave was wearing a hooded robe, the bodylines revealed when running resembles a girl.

At that point, for some reason, Lilianne felt a slight discomfort in her heart.

With that discomfort, Lilianne felt more unease and nervously waited for news to come.

However, since they managed to get away, there has been no use so far.

Thus, she can only wait.

After a few minutes, finally, there was news.

They say there was a monster’s roar inside the town so many players and NPCs checked them.

There, in the alleyway, was Lucas collapsed together with the slave holding him up and a mass of flesh on the other side.

The buildings on the sides were also destroyed and the alleyway reeked of blood or so they described.

Though Lilianne was relieved that Lucas was finally found, she became even more anxious seeing him collapsed.

It seems that the Arch-bishop also showed himself and was able to mediate.

From his words, the players judged that Lucas was no criminal and was even invited inside the church.

However, since they did not know the whole picture, they gathered in front of the church waiting to be the first ones to get news.

Soon, the gaming networks and even some news networks has also got wind of the situation and moved their own staffs in order to show it live in the real world.

There are also a few of their own staffs located in [Drachege] but was still low level so they were no able to send them to help Lucas with the dragon fight before.

But now, they can have them meet Lucas personally to get news ahead of time.

They just told them to tell the guards stationed to meet with Lucas with Trask as their referral.

At this situation, the guards would ask Lucas himself if he knew the person but for some reason, they didn’t and just flat out refused.

This made Lillianne even more uneasy.

Worst case, Lucas was actually a criminal and was locked up in some kind of prison inside the church.

Another case, it might be that Lucas is still unconscious and since the guards know he cannot answer, they refused.

Keeping optimistic, Lillianne continued to wait.

Then, 2 hours later, the news channel on the TV inside the office changed.

There showed a large crowd and a church.

Being familiar with the scene, they noticed that the news is actually in game.

Even though they say it’s live, since they slowed it down 3 times because of the time difference, it can be cannot be called a complete live but more like a semi-live one.

“Oh! It’s finally here!”

“Finally! Hurry up and tell us what’s happening already!”

Everyone was excited and was intently watching the news.

In front of the church were 3 figures.

The Arch-bishop, the slave, a familiar white hair.

“Lucas!”

Lilianne inadvertently exclaimed.

[[The King has betrayed his own kingdom by killing his wife the Queen and his stepson the Prince!]]

Everyone was shocked to hear this, even Lilianne.

But after hearing that, she was more relieved. If that was true, then chances Lucas being a criminal was a misunderstanding after all was high.

Now there would be a lot of problems, like which noble to side and what to do.

Everyone was excited since the noble they will side might turn into the new King and that there’s a high chance that their rewards will be good.

A handsome red-haired knight in red armour appeared with a man in chains.

Following that, the Arch-bishop explained the sequence of events.

How the King killed his wife and stepson, who he contracted, about the Black Hand being a proof that it was not a fake and so on.

Everyone was already assured that the King is in the wrong here.

But the King didn’t give up.

[[Lies! Everyone! This is the work of that brat’s brainwashing! Those contracts are forged! I would never harm my wife and my stepson!]]

It was a really unsightly resistance and even Lilianne frowned at it.

[[Everyone! Please! Believe in this King of yours!]]

[[Shut up.]]

There, Lucas finally spoke. But it was a lot lower and seemed cold that everyone grew silent.

Not just those in the game, but those in real life as well.

[[As explained by sir Arch-bishop Agerad, the contract with the Black Hand seal is impossible to forge. If you’re still unsatisfied, we could even do a blood test and see whether the blood matches.]]

[[W-wha-!? Lies! There is no such artifact like that!]]

The King continued to refuse.

To the King and the NPCs of the game, this was very confusing.

But to the players and everyone watching in their television, they were even more confused.

After all, that technology only exists in the real world and there is no way you can pass the blood in the real world to check it or vice versa so they kept silent since they all thought that Lucas was only bluffing to corner the King.

However, that proved to be wrong.

[[In this world yes, there is probably no such thing. However, I am not from this world and in our world, there exists a convenient tool like that.]]

Even though the players has no real reason to hide it. They didn’t really just go around telling it as well.

Since this is only a game to them.

But Lucas’ next actions was far more unbelievable.

[[What you don’t believe it? Fine, see this? It’s called [Cellphone], we use this to call others far away or send messages but I mostly use it to play games.]]

As he said that, he revealed a rectangular glossy black box which was very familiar to the players and showed a certain game app on it.

At these words, as expected, everyone can only be wide eyed and slacked mouth as response.

However, Trask, who was watching from the back, was smiling as if finding it amusing. No, it was as if he accepted it all like he knows it already.

But since everyone was focused on the TV, no one saw him.

“…Oi…is that thing for real!? Hey! I’m not the only one seeing that right!?”

Pearce was shouting at everyone seemingly confused at what just happened.

[[Interesting…there are pictures moving here…and there seems to be interaction if you touch it too…]]

Before anyone had noticed it, the Arch-bishop had taken the cellphone and played with it.

At this point, some people had probably thought what he’s playing.

[[Can I keep it?]]

[[No!]]

Lucas took the cellphone back and the Arch-bishop backed away with a slightly tearing up sad face.

With that friendly exchange, most have already calmed down.

[[A-anyway! There is still a better option if you want to know whether the contract is real or not.]]

[[G-gh!]]

At Lucas’ words, he held the [Black Hand Contracts] and the King stiffened.

[[If this is real, then if I tear it, you will be cursed.]]

[[N-no! Please! Anything but that!]]

[[Then confess. Confess to your own people how much of a trash you are.]]

[[N-ngggg-!!!!]]

Too stuborn, this King is seriously stubborn.

Then, probably irritated, Lucas silently tore the contracts.

[[G-ga-….GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!]]

Immediately afterwards, the trash King’s body turned purple, his eyeballs melted, his voice went coarse, countless wrinkles appeared on his face, lastly, his body deformed into that of a monster.

[[…Do we kill him?]]

[[No, that would be too generous. He will be excommunicated from [Drachedge].]]

On the Arch-bishop’s cruel response, they strapped the King on one of the catapults and fired.

[[You brat! I’ll make you regret this! Mark my words! I will definitely get my reveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeenge!!!!!!!!!!!!]]

Or so he shouted when he was launched into the air.

It was rather an unbelievable spectacle.

Seeing the King strapped into a catapult and firing it out of the town.

Everyone would think it’s insane but nevertheless, as they are all fed up of the King, no one felt pity and simply ignored him.

[[Now then, as you are all aware. Now that there are no one left in the royal family to take the throne, nobles will start to fight for it soon. So I propose a solution.]]

Saying that, the Arch-bishop patted Lucas on the back while pushing him forward.

[[This here is the Hero from the prophecy, his name is Lucas.]]

Finally, Lucas’ name is known to the world.

Lucas himself looked like he didn’t mind it but still confused.

“Oh, finally his rewards huh?”

“So envious...to be rewarded by the Arch-bishop…”

“…the Arch-bishop looks really cute…”

Everyone on the office began making assumptions, with an exception of few who just admired the

Arch-bishop, Lucas, or the slave.

“Huh? Hero from the prophecy?”

Lilianne however, was confused on that part so she decided to look at Lucas’ status again.

There, clearly said on the Title: Light Hero shrouded by Darkness.

Just as she was going to report it to Trask, the Arch-bishop’s next words stopped all of their thoughts.

[[I nominate him King!]]

+ + +

Turning back time a little, Freya was anxiously watching over Lucas as he slept unconscious in the church’s clinic.

After the outrage earlier and defeating the Black Hand assassin, they were brought toward the church after clearing the misunderstanding and it has already been almost 6 hours since he collapsed.

Still, Freya continued to watch over him.

This boy that helped her from the beginning and believed in her without any solid reason.

Though it would seem that he knew her family and said to have met them recently, Freya didn’t fully trust those words before and didn’t interact with him that much.

However, that changed when the Black Hand was about to kill her.

When the poison laced needle was inches away from her, Lucas protected her.

Even though protecting her would mean throwing himself in the middle of Freya and the needle.

Even though protecting her would mean doubling the pain inside him.

But he still did it.

Looking back on it, that was the point where Freya started to look differently on Lucas.

He’s a friend.

“My first friend…”

To this friend of hers that she finally had, she wanted to express her thanks in helping her without asking anything.

“Nnn….nngghhhh…”

After a few more minutes, Lucas finally woke up.

“Ah, you finally woke up.”

“…Hn? What…is this heaven Ms. Angel?”

He seemed to be still half-asleep but as expected, Freya immediately blushed for being embarrassed.

“A-angel!? I-I-I-I’m not…!!!”

“Ah…What, it’s just Freya…”

“W-why did you suddenly sound disappointed!?”

Freya inadvertently retorted.

There was also a lingering feeling of sadness beneath her heart when he heard Lucas sound disappointed but she ignored it thinking it was nothing.

In any case, after explaining what happened after he collapsed, Freya told herself to definitely thank him.

When she told him about how he killed the assassin, Freya was a bit uncomfortable about it since Lucas was in a rampage at that time and might cause him needless worries.

In the end, she decided not to keep anything from him and told him the truth.

“Again huh?...”

Again…that means that it had already happened before?

Hearing that, Freya became more worried and was just about to ask it when the Arch-bishop entered the room.

After their exchange, the Arch-bishop left the room and Lucas seemed to focus on something.

Again, Freya noticed his constant mood swings.

From excited, to surprised, to confused, to sighing as if giving up.

Freya has no idea what he’s seeing.

Anyway, after he is done on whatever he’s doing, Freya will definitely say thank you.

Thank you…thank you….say thank you…

At some point, Freya was staring at Lucas intently which seemed to be noticed.

“Wh-what is it?”

“E-eh? N-no, it’s nothing…”

Since Lucas suddenly talked to her, Freya unconsciously negated him.

Since the awkward silence that followed was suffocating, she decided to be the one to break it and confess.

“Hm…Confess? Why did I think that?”

After correcting herself saying she will thank him in her mind, she started.

“…U-umm…that is…”

“Y-you don’t have to force it if you don’t want to.”

“T-thank you very much!!!”

“A-ahh…you’re welcome…”

Lucas seemed to have said something in between but she wasn’t able to hear it clearly as she was completely focused on thanking him.

In any case, after hearing him say ‘you’re welcome’, Freya was greatly relieved that she started to tear up.

“I never thought saying thank you would be this relaxing.”

And then, for some reason, Lucas went to a corner and drew circles on the ground.

Since Freya’s eyes were still watery, she wasn’t able to see it clearly and thus, ignored it.

“Excuse me, since the Prince is yet to be found and we can’t keep this secret forever, we would have to annou-…”

The Arch-bishop entered again to tell them to prepare but for some reason, he froze midway.

“W-what seems to be the problem?”

“Hm?”

“…It’s nothing…I’ll get ready…”

While the Arch-bishop was confused and Freya tilting her head wondering what happened, Lucas listlessly picked himself up and began walking outside.

Since outside was pretty cloudy, there was no real harm to her by the sunlight, though maybe it was just a coincidence that it was cloudy, but it seems that when she looked at the Arch-bishop, he revealed a faint smile.

During the announcement, everything went well at first, but because the King kept denying everything, Lucas stepped forward.

“Everyone! Please! Believe in this King of yours!”

“Shut up.”

Though it would seem that Lucas released a cold voice, to Freya, it seems completely normal.

Perhaps because she already saw that [Monster] and she can no longer be afraid of him or that because she started treating him as her friend, in any case, everyone went silent and continued to listen.

“As explained by sir Arch-bishop Agerad, the contract with the Black Hand seal is impossible to forge. If you’re still unsatisfied, we could even do a blood test and see whether the blood matches.”

“W-wha-!? Lies! There is no such artifact like that!”

Here, even Freya was surprised.

Though she had been imprisoned for years and had barely a few contacts with anyone outside of the cave, even she would think that such technology does not exist yet.

But this is Lucas, she had already seen him do weird yet interesting things a number of times so maybe he found one or he’s bluffing. Either way, she decided to just see how things play out.

“In this world yes, there is probably no such thing. However, I am not from this world and in our world, there exists a convenient tool like that.”

Now this had definitely surpassed anything that’s possible.

During her time as a slave, she would constantly hear how special beings keep on appearing all over the world.

These special beings can use a very unique spell [Log Out] which makes their body disappear.

It was said that an expert in finding invisible or hidden objects told everyone that they definitely disappear and didn’t simply become invisible.

Even experts in teleportation were unable to make heads or tails about it.

But they still managed to confirm that it was a form of teleportation.

Only, they have no idea where they went.

After a while, they lost interest and just accepted it as normal.

But after Lucas’ declaration, most of them had most likely guessed, the [Log Out] spell allows them to teleport to their own world.

However, thinking that anything Lucas would say can no longer surprise them, they were wrong.

“What you don’t believe it? Fine, see this? It’s called [Cellphone], we use this to call others far away or send messages but I mostly use it to play games.”

Revealing a black shiny box, Freya cannot help but be amazed.

At some point in time, the Arch-bishop had already taken ahold of this [Cellphone] and fiddled with it.

Since Freya was just beside him, she was able to see very clearly.

Again, she was amazed.

On one side of the black box, there were pictures moving.

When the Arch-bishop touched something, the picture changes and follows his finger!

When he used two fingers and stretched it, the picture grew bigger!

When he rotated his fingers like turning a key, the picture rotated!

“Can I keep it?”

“No!”

As expected, even the Arch-bishop was tempted by the interesting black box.
In fact, Freya also wanted to say that but since Lucas already took the phone, she refrained herself.

“I’ll ask him if I can borrow it later.”

Anyway, even after that, the King refuses to confess even after being threatened to be cursed so Lucas cursed him.

On the Arch-bishop’s commands, the King was strapped onto a catapult and fired off in the distance.

Seeing the King fly away like that, Freya made a relieved expression.

“Now then, as you are all aware. Now that there are no one left in the royal family to take the throne, nobles will start to fight for it soon. So I propose a solution.”

Now that the fake King was dealt with, the Arch-bishop turned the announcement to the next problem. The upcoming civil war.

Saying that, the Arch-bishop patted Lucas on the back while pushing him forward.

“This here is the Hero from the prophecy, his name is Lucas.”

“Hero?...come to think of it, he did mention making the Hero-….can’t be right?”

Even Lucas seemed confused at being suddenly introduced as a Hero.

“I nominate him King!”

“My first friend just became a King!!!???”

+ + +

And now back to the present.

“Hah!?”

Lucas unconsciously let out an idiotic response.

“Hm? Something the matter?”

“Don’t ‘Something the matter’ me!!! What is this about me becoming the King!? I never heard any of this!?”

Lucas obviously wanted to refuse but still wanted to learn why.

“But this is why I made you come with me though?”

“You failed to mention that! I thought you just want me to be a witness for the trash’s crimes!?”

“And that part is done. Now let’s talk about you being the King.”

“I refuse.”

Seeing as talking will get him nowhere, Lucas just flat out refused it.

“I’m afraid you really have no say at the matter, if you don’t accept, a civil war will break out you know?”

“Don’t care. I absolutely refuse!”

“May I know why? Being a King is pretty good you know? Your word is the law and you are allowed any number of concubines, make a harem and live your life surrounded by money and women.”

The Arch-bishop tempted Lucas by whispering to his ear.

“Are you seriously an Arch-bishop!? That was just like the devil’s whisper you know!? And how come you know of terms like harem!?”

After retorting to every last thing, Lucas was exhausted mentally.

He wasn’t really a retorting character but this Arch-bishop just made him into one.

“Look here. First of all, the King has no freedom. I wanna journey the whole continent, travel north, have adventures, then move on to the next continent by ship!”

Lucas held out one finger in front of the Arch-bishop.

“Second! I have no idea how to run a kingdom at all so this kingdom will definitely fall into ruin if I lead it!”

Then, Lucas stretched another finger making it two.

“Third! Lastly, because being the King means mountains of work and paperwork and those are the two things that I absolutely hate to do!”

Ending it with three fingers stretched, Lucas exhaled through his nose seemingly proud of himself.

“So no, I’m sorry but you need to prepare for a civil war.”

“I see…that’s too bad. Perhaps it was not yet the time…understood, we will start preparing for the worst.”

“Seriously…to make a player into a King so suddenly…I really cannot be here 24/7 you know?...”

Sighing as he finally managed to stop the Arch-bishop making him King.

Since the previous statement was taken back, everyone relieved.

The NPCs, relieved because they thought of how they will serve a King they barely knew of, on top of that, after learning that they came from a different world, of course they would worry.

The players, relieved because they have never heard of a player become a King before. But now that they knew that it was actually possible, most of them were excited to the upcoming battle between nobles and who to side with.

The nobles especially were relieved because they cannot simply ignore the nomination of the Arch-bishop politically speaking as he holds more power than them.

And Freya, relieved because she finally got a friend only to become the King, she worried if she will be able to meet him again.

In any case, the nobles appeared to have started on making preparations.

“Please hold on a second.”

In that instant, a male voice was heard in the crowd pushing himself towards the front.

“There is no need for a civil war, for I have returned.”

This man, about the same age as Lucas, wearing noble clothing and a sword on his side, stood beside the Arch-bishop and introduced himself.

“I am Prince Lanslet Danessad Drachedge…no, from now on, the Danessad is no longer a part of my name. I am now just Lanslet Drachedge.”

With those words, the crowd fell silent again.

After all, it was believed that the Prince has already passed away and now, a person claiming to be the Prince stood there.

No, he was not claiming to be the Prince, he is the Prince.

Soon after he arrived, another man in his late 30s in noble outfit and a familiar figure also made an appearance.

“Haah…haah…Sorry we’re late, Lucas. I’ve returned with the Prince.”

“Oh, Noir! So you’ve found him. Then you should’ve contacted me or be faster, I was almost made the King you know?”

“Oh, Lucas as the King huh?....eh…EEEHHH!!!??? Seriously!? Wait, you’re the one who didn’t answer! I’ve been trying to call you hours ago!”

“Ah, sorry, I was sleeping that time.”

“Sleeping!? I was traveling for hours and you were sleeping!?”

“Shut up you, it’s really tiring to keep on being chased around as a criminal.”

The two continued to exchange words that didn’t quite fit the atmosphere making everyone feel awkward.

“Ah, oi look, you’ve made things awkward here, hurry up and explain what happened.”

“That’s not my fault!?”

The Arch-bishop, Freya, and the Prince can only smile wryly hearing these two.

“*Cough* Very well, I will start my report.”

Facing the crowd, Noir explained what had happened in the past 6 hours.

After searching in the woods around where the attack happened, Noir found a person loitering about the actual scene of the crime.

When he asked who he was, fearing it might be an assassin, Noir readied his staff.

However, that was but a [Cohasset] scout.

[Cohasset] is the nearest town to [Drachedge] and also the town the Prince visited just before the attack.

The travel time is 2 hours at least and 3 hours at most.

After talking to the scout, it would seem that the scout was there to make sure there are no traces left that would suggest the Prince is alive.

At those words, Noir became excited and wanted to meet the Prince.

The reason why the scout readily believed him was because the Black Hand has a unique feature, their black hands. That is a requirement in joining, one must dirty his own hands or so to say.

In any case, the Lord governing [Cohasset] was one that has deep relations to the real bloodline of the Kings, in other words, hearing of the news of the Queen’s passing, he informed the Prince that he might become the next target and told him to send a double first instead then return on a later day.

The Prince acknowledged it and ordered his double to take his place, this matter was only known to him, the Lord and a select few individuals, so not even the soldiers guarding him was aware. He even went as far as giving to the double the real ring of royalty so he can be known as the real one.

Sure enough, they soon received news that the double has passed away, and the remains were ordered by the Lord to be disposed of and buried, the ring of royalty to be send to the King.

With this, they started to think of revolting in a later date and usurp the King, however, a man came wanting to have audience with the Prince.

At first, they thought of arresting him immediately, but after hearing his story, they decided not to.
That was Noir.

He said that a person named Lucas told him that there is a high chance that the Prince is alive and that the Queen and the Prince’s death was at the hand of the King.

That this Lucas person may even kill the King.

To the Lord and the Prince, this was very surprising.

They did not think at all that there would be someone out there who actually thinks he can just kill the King of the country.

But in the end, though he did not kill the King, they received word that the Arch-bishop is now looking after him and that the King was arrested for some reason.

So they decided to stop their future plans to revolt and simply walk in.

“I have heard much about you from Sir Noir. I am really grateful to you, the White Haired Adventurer, Sir Lucas.”

Prince Lanslet kneeled in front of Lucas.

Following him, the Lord also kneeled, then the Arch-bishop, followed by the soldiers and knights and priests, then the rest of the crowd as well as Freya and Noir.

Seeing the whole country bow down to him, Lucas felt complicated.

First of all, he wanted to act all high and mighty and raise his chest up high, but that was too much and as expected, Lucas was more embarrassed.

“It’s…it’s fine really. Please stand, this is really embarrassing for me.”

Hearing this, the Prince can’t help but smile wryly and stood up.

“In any case, is it fine to talk of your rewards at a later date?”

“Eh? But we didn’t really get any quest though?”

Noir jumped in the conversation.

“? Quest? Though I have no idea what you mean, the fact is that you still helped us with or without us asking for it, you still deserve a proper reward.”

“S-seriously!?”

“O-oi, did you hear that!?”

“Yeah! That means the Quest limit of 5 is now useless! We can get as many quests as we can and still get a reward!”

Like the crowd said, there is a limit to the quests slots and that you can only accept 5 of them.

However, because of Lucas’ discovery of this technique, those slots no longer matters.

“Alright, now that the problem of the next King is settled, the coronation date will be announced in a later date as there are still a number of necessary preparations. Moving on, there is one last problem to solve.”

At the Arch-bishop’s words, like with Lucas, this time, he patted Freya’s back.

“M-my name is Freya Draculae Lytton. I am the only surviving Vampire Lord of the pure-blooded vampire race. Pleased to meet you all.”

“…Huh? Draculae? Vampire Lord?.....eh?”


Author's Notes


Yay no tables!!!! \(^o^)/

Now that I've shown my hate in tables, let's move on.

First of all, sorry for the late release of this chapter. Had to do school stuffs so yeaaah -_-

In any case, this arc is nearing it's end.

The Prince has been found, the King is cursed and excommunicated, Lucas has brought a change to the world. By change, I mean the way players viewed NPCs and vice versa as well as the magnitude of freedom inside the game.

How will the NPCs start treating them? What was the prophecy mentioned by the Arch-bishop? There is still the interview and how the rest will view Freya now that she's announced herself as a vampire.

There are still many questions that are probably in your heads but all I have to say is wait! I cannot possibly answer them all in one chapter! that's boring!

Anyway, this chapter was mostly just a summary(?) of the previous ones in Lilianne and Freya's semi-POV(?) since I didn't really use "I" to refer them so it's not completely their POV? well whatever.

2 chapters left! and I can finally start with the next arc!

Haha, I am absolutely sure that the next arc will shock you all! mhahahaha! I can't wait!

Also, a lot of you guys kept saying "MAKE LUCAS KING!!!", well, I don't really want to but still tried to consider it but still, Lucas' freedom would be taken and I can't have that. So no! And I also have no idea how to rule a Kingdom so it will be hard for me to write it.

Owell, that should be all.

Till the next chapter! :P

    Thanks for the release! I’m glad you didn’t make him king. It’s more interesting for him to wander around. I can’t wait to see what secretes Freya holds.

    Thanks for the chapter, but this chapter feels like I’m reading the last chapter. No new development aside from the last part.

    Found some minor errors.

    But still, she still chose attend work simply because she’s having fun monitoring a certain boy’s status.

    She thought it was really a shame that picked [Drachedge] as the starting town which was located at the southern kingdom whereas she was in the northern.

    Everyone would think it’s insane but nevertheless, as they are all fed up of the King, no one felt pity and [simple>simply] ignored him.

    Since outside was pretty cloudy, there was no real harm to her by the sunlight, though maybe it was just a coincidence that it was cloudy, but it seems that when she looked at the Arch-bishop, he revealed a faint smile.

    On the Arch-bishop’s commands, the King was strapped onto a catapult and fired [of>off] in the distance.

    “I nominate him King!”
    “I nominate him [the next] King!”

    “You failed to mention that! I thought you just want me to be a witness for [the>that] trash’s crimes!?”

    This man about the same age as Lucas, wearing noble clothing and a sword on his side, stood beside the Arch-bishop and introduced himself.

    In any case, the Lord governing [Cohasset] was one that has deep relations to the real bloodline of the Kings, in other words, hearing of the news of the Queen’s passing, he informed the Prince that he might become the next target and told him to send a double first instead then return on a [latter>later] day.

    cant have lucas be king, then he wouldnt be able to become op and carry out the dragons revenge(cant remember the name)and build up his harem. Any ways thanks for the chapter.

    Thanks for the chapter.

    Yeah I don’t see him becoming King. Maybe something else in the King’s Court, like Duke or Count or Viceroy. Basically right hand man to the King. That’s more likely, this way he can still travel and come back if the King needs help.

    Then he can get his own land and a mansion and build himself his own city and put others in charge of it he can trust.

    Glad to see a new chapter. I like the multiple PoV’s.

    Sorry for those disappointed that there wasn’t much advancement to the story, but no matter what, I want you guys to see the other character’s POVs especially the heroines :3

    Also, there were a lot of faulty grammars as VincentAtd pointed out which were correct and some, I left as is. anyway, I think I was half-asleep when I wrote those parts…after posting it I immediately slept in front of the computer -_-

    Yes, Lucas is definitely not cut out as a King -_- it will make the story waaaay harder as I have to actually research about how to run a country in which I am too lazy to do :p

    @NP-3228, I think it’s already pretty obvious that he can take ‘things’ from the game into the real as he can already change into his character in the real, he just have to open his [Inventory].

    As for people, kukukuku, you’ll just have to wait! haha, probably in chap 10 of this volume, your question will be answered. If not,

    imaginexbreaker You Are An Amazing Author One Of The Best Of Japtem, And Also A Great Artist. I Liked This Chapter And The Multiple POV’s You Put. You Could Probably Turn This Into A Manga Or Manhwa If You Wanted To With Your Skills. Keep Up The Awesome Work.

    @Youngmoe, why are all the words capital first letter? haha nevertheless, thank you :3 At some point before, I had thought of making this into a manga…actually, that was the first thought but alas…dragons are hard -_- haha owell :p so I made it a web novel instead and just place an illustration whenever I feel like it :3

    Mm…. the POV of other characters, while its not bad its not good for story progression if the whole chapter is about it tough, if you want to have POV of other characters we wont mind a few extra days so you can prepare them along with a normal chapter…

    As for lucas, lily and her company will say, Lucas found, yet again another hole in the system LOOOL, they should pay him for that XD

    Thank you for the chapter.

    I kind of thought he would turn down kingship. Lucas seems like the kind of guy who doesn’t like to sit a desk all day even with all the perks being a king would bring.

    Also Freya really needs to learn how to read the mode when it comes to Lucas … She is causing some massive misunderstandings (-‸ლ)
