Volume 3, Chapter 4: "Van Hawk's Humiliation"

Short Summary Edit

In the real world, Lee Hyun spends some time on his computer looking through the auction site for Royal Road, and puts several of the items he obtained in the City of Heaven up for auction.

Meanwhile, a bit of the Versailles Continent's history is explained detailing how seven small kingdoms banded together to form the Britten Alliance after the fall of the old Arpen Empire hundreds of years ago.

Logging back into the game, Weed and Mapan have made it out of the Bar Khu Mountain Range, and arrive at Tomlin Village on the eastern edge of the Britten Alliance. Weed sculpting throughout the month of travelling from Rosenheim Kingdom has increased a few of his skills, and the monster fights along the way pushed his Lion's Roar skill all the way up to the Advanced stage. The two stop by the village exchange to sell off Rosenheim products to the Britten Alliance where Mapan sells off some basic items, but Weed is advised to sell the jewels he sculpted at a much larger city where he will get better prices at a jewelry store.

Departing Tomlin Village, Weed and Mapan next travel to Castle Regus, the capital city of the Britten Alliance. The two split up with Mapan going off to the castle exchange while Weed goes to sell his gems at the jewelry store for thousands of gold. While selling, Weed attempts to get more money out of the female shopkeeper using the Harp of Vino the Dwarf, but fails to do so due to his dreadful singing. Weed next stops by an Item Identification shop to get his Crimson Necklace of Life identified, and manages to do so from a player with a much higher identify skill. The item turns out to be a unique Necklace of the Death Knight that has the ability to summon Van Hawk to fight for the user once the Death Knight has his loyalty changed from his dark warlock master, Bar Khan Demoph.

Done with Castle Regus, Weed and Mapan begin their next journey towards the city of Somren. Along the way, Weed uses the necklace to summon Van Hawk, and continuously kills him each time the summon cooldown is up. Weed repeats this process hundreds of times until he feels that the Death Knight has truly accepted Weed as his new master.
