Policy of the Lord of Morata
The Lord's action
The Fortress was almost destroyed. The Lord of Morata decided to invest heavily. His aim is to restore the region to his former glory.
He used all of his influence (feeding the Geomchi ) to restore public order and financial stability aiding the fortress's restoration to the former glory (with the financial support from Morata).
A few action :
- sending his minions (larger living sculptures) to hunt and clean up the monster nest...
- adding a sculpture of Magnum Opus level (Lich who Commands the Undead v25) to boost the cultural and economical growth.
- using the ability of the Seal of the Emperor to restore the influence of the past.
Other Vargo benefactors
They were many. To name just a few:
- The Geomchi and Weed's close friends
- Petrov, the painter
Informations to be added later on.
Resources of the region
Basically all the light are green for the players. To summarize it:
There is a huge potential for farming, mining, etc. Vast swaths of forests and jagged mountains are part of the territory (v24c11).
The fortress has excellent potential. It's next to Morata and also next to the other races who are willing to trade and access to the human products coming through Morata.
Fargo Fortress is an incredible place to raise military troops. The support from the Geomchi and the living sculpture is also a must.
The region is devoid of the abusive influence of the Central Continent's guilds. The influence of the blooming region of Morata is close and the rule of Weed is smart/wise.
Nonexistent, but the strong support of Weed and Petrov and the close region of Morata are a very strong incentive. Same as for Morata.
Region Information Window
After Bar Khan demise, and Weed claimed ownership of Vargo Fortress,
When Weed defeated Bar Khan, a window popped up only to him showing a regional information of Vargo Fortress. The fortress will be having a regular monsters attack.
Once a fortress occupied by the Undead.
Users from Morata started pouring to Vargo Fortress. Merchants, architects, artists, and offensive class users flocked to the fortress. Merchants wanted to trade right away with users who participated in the Undead Legion battles. Drops from the Undead Legion and the Bone Dragons weren't something that easily acquired. The number of merchants that flocked to Vargo easily reached 1,000. Morata is close to the fortress so many people were able to reach it within 1 day.
Architects (Pavo & co) started doing renovations to the fortress. This was the priority because of regular monsters incursions.
Farmers looked around the river for fertile lands. Adventurers talked to the native races there, looking for any decent dungeons in the vicinity. Before the day's end over three waves of people came over to the fortress.
Vargo Fortress population has exceeded over 2,000 within 1 day.
|Due to the active commerce, there is now tax income.
All tax will be used to repair the fortress.
Trading has become an important part of Vargo Fortress. Besides humans, other races who live in the surrounding area came to Vargo Fortress to trade goods. Female elves sold goods brought from the forests and bought goods needed. Dwarves came to sell quality war materials and brought back wagons full of beers.Since barbarians lived there for the hunting grounds and monsters density, they had a constant need for support items. They brought leathers and japtems to trade.
One month passed in real time and during that time there was a tremendous amount of development in Vargo Fortress. The total population had reached 30,000 and the ruined walls were gradually built. Since the fortress didn't have enough income yet to cover the cost of maintenance and the wall building/repairing, all Weed's money were invested in the fortress.
- Following the cleanup, it was found out that the Knight's Drill Hall, Basic Training Center, and Warrior Guild can be rebuilt at the same old place.
- Houses were built to accommodate people.
- Vargo Fortress development direction was quite different than Morata. Morata started with the protection of the Church of Freya which allowed Weed to ignore the military need within Morata for a while. He couldn't do the same with Vargo Fortress. There was no protection from the Church of Freya in Vargo Fortress and he also had to consider monster invasions that happened every day. Some funds were spent on building up the military force.
|Vargo Fortress Military Power|
|Novice Knights : 58||Average level : 196|
|Soldiers without battle exp : 4,312||Average Level : 52|
|Loyalty : 91%|
Training : 46%
|An army has been created with the immigrants from Morata.|
Army's recruitment was focused on hunters and sturdy young men.
Because Weed's regions had developed nicely, he didnn't need to micro-manage everything in his regions. Users and NPC's helped building the cities.
- Church of Freya
- The Church of Freya came to Vargo to spread the faith to the migrating residents of Morata. They started the construction of their shrine in Vargo.
- Weed called the Sculptures Lifeform from Las Phalanx/Jigolath to help with the public order.
- 1,500 archers were deployed to the walls and readied to fire their arrows at the monsters. Knights commanded the archers while deploying the swordsmen up the walls. Cavalries were set as a reserve, just in case the wall was breached. Players fought in tandem with the army.
- Petrov's paintings/drawings
- He drew on the fortress's walls with different varieties of drawings: barbarians which were natural enemies of the local monsters, steaming barbecues which distracted the monsters and many others. All these paintings helped the army and players defeat the monsters.

|Through the endless tide of monsters attacking the Fortress, there is a high chance that this fortress will be destroyed. Under the miraculous leadership of Lord Weed, restoration of the Fortress is underway in this hopeless situation. A large scale repair is under progress, collapsed parts of the Fortress are by and large being repaired.|
The security outside the Fortress is nonexistent, the residents cannot start any economic activities. But Through the repeated monster assaults, the soldiers’ real battle experience is rising quickly. They are especially adept at firing arrows.
|Total Population of the Fortress :||6,892|
|Monthly Tax Income:||24,978 Gold|
|Fortress Operating Expenditures :||Military 47%|
Repair Work 34%
Most of the taxes of Vargo Fortress are collected from the trade. The repair of the walls was going well,rendering them almost impregnable. To boost morales of the people, Weed used his Lord command to open the stores in the Lord's Castle and take out all the meat. Residents took as much meat as they wanted. Weed made a 20 meters tall meat tower. Tens of thousands of players roasted and ate meat.
After Weed finished developing Morata, he went to Vargo with Yurin's help. He accessed the Lord's command and chose buildings using the funds he got from selling his ceramics.
- The Great Trees Square
- Orcish Baths
- When the Orcs lead by Seechwi finally arrived at Morata their numbers has ballooned up to 175,000. Weed used his lord command to send them to an Orc Village Settlement near Vargo.
- With that action, once again for the second time in history Humans, Barbarian, Dwarves, Elves, and Orcs live in the same area.
- Maroon Colored Streets
Because the other races's presence would raise the effectiveness of ancient buildings Weed decided to invest 150,000 gold for each ancient structure and the remaining funds were used to build othe rfacilities.
- Commodity Exchanges
- Archery Training Center for Elves. It improved accuracy and made possible the change of profession to Archers and Rangers.
- Forges for Dwarves
- Warrior Arena for Barbarians
Weed constructed buildings for every race living in Vargo and its surrounding areas.
After the establishment of Arpen Kingdom.
- Sculptural Lifeforms
As the wall's repair was completed, not many monsters stormed the fortress. The Sculptural Lifeforms began to slack off and enjoy days of relax inside. Only Knight Seville/Silver Blacksun actively participated on a mission with soldiers and hunters to drive back the monsters. Over time the Barbarians and his troops multiplied to 980 soldiers, they thrived under the knight's competent leadership and battled. Seville chose 14 talented knights from the candidates and appointed them as his deputies. Goldman, Yellowy, Bingryong, and Phoenix started to train monsters to the direction of Sculptural Lifeforms who slacked off for training so they could get stronger and help Weed in his quests.
Orcs played a vital role for Vargo Fortress to overcome the monsters constant invasions. They fought on a daily basis, it's in their blood. The population at one time declined to 60,000 but due to very high birth rate, it didn't really matter for them. They never backed down from fights, Orc Karichwi is their role model. Their rapid power expansion was their most terrifying feature. Their number quickly increased to 390,000.
|The Orcs have revealed their existence in the Northern Continent.
The Orcs have expanded their territory in the north through violence and selfishness. Orcs will fight with strong and dangerous monsters in order to test their limits and grow.
|Orc species can now start at Vargo Fortress.|
For humans, various conditions have to be met for activities; politic, security, technology or urban development. The only condition for Orcs was their breeding power and strength, its much simpler than for other races. Fellow kin and food are the only things required. The orcs in Vargo Fortress had higher knowledge due to exposure to sculptures and other artworks. They began to realize that Weed was Karichwi, however, they thought Karichwi's appearance as Weed the human was the result of a curse.
5 Orc Lors headed to Morata to confront Weed about it. In Morata, they pledged their allegiance to Weed.
|The Orcs have joined the Arpen Kingdom.
They are a race with amazing survival abilities.
Many races are present: from elves to fairies, from dwarves to barbarian, humans and Orcs as well.The relations between each group is good thanks to Weeds leadership. The Orcs have become of vital importantance to the region as well. Weed allocated a plot of land to the initial group of 170,000. After battling the monsters in the area, the group's population initially declined to 60,000. However, due to their high fertility, the population has increased to 390,000. Their constant battling with the nearby monsters have drastically reduced the monsters able to invade Vargo Fortress making it safer for everyone (v29c3).
With the population increase, the Orcs have succeeded in fulfilling the required population for this region and users can now start at Vargo Fortress.
After the demise of Bar Khan, they are the main resource of the region. Weed had to bribe/feed the Geomchis and sent his living sculpture to help to defend the fortress

For the Elves, he built the Archery Training Center for them to use. A Warrior Arena was also made.
