Volume 3, Chapter 9: "The Great Sculpture"

Short Summary Edit

In the icy Northern Continent, Weed, Alveron, and Van Hawk continue clearing out Morata of the True Blood Clan vampires. Alveron dispels the stone curse on any Church of Freya Paladins or Priests they come across and in the town as they all return to the Teleport Gate cave where Weed cooks the soldiers some food to help them regain their strength. Next, Weed goes out hunting more wolves with the newly freed Freya soldiers since leveling them up will help in the upcoming fights against the vampires. While doing that, Weed decides to make a sculpture that will provide them a support buff, and comes to the conclusion that using the surrounding ice is his best option.

Using Seoyoon's image once more for the face, Weed succeeds in sculpting the Ice Beauty, which increases some of his stats, his Handicraft and Sculpting skills, as well as providing a buff that will grant them some resistances dealing with the cold north. After taking a break due to an ice storm that ended up damaging the Ice Beauty sculpture, Weed repairs it by replacing the statue's broken ice. The repairs showing that he can combine ice together sparks an idea in Weed, which causes him to log off Royal Road to look into this further.

In real life, Lee Hyun gathers information on his computer about possible colossal monsters he could sculpt using a large amount of combined ice. Seeing the dragons associated with the Continent of Magic game, Hyun decides that the perfect thing to go about sculpting in the cold north is a dragon made of ice.

After logging back into Royal Road, Weed and the Freya soldiers go about stacking up a large mound of ice, which Weed then begins to sculpt. Eventually, Weed completes the massive sculpture known as the Ice Dragon, which further increases his stats, his Handicraft and Sculpting skills, and provides even stronger buffs than that of the Ice Beauty. Afterwards, Weed, Alveron, Van Hawk, and the army of Paladins and Priests return to clearing out Morata's vampires.

Meanwhile in Serabourg, Pale, Surka, Romuna, and Irene provide bread for the starving 505 Geomchis; all of which finally complete the Training Hall after 4 grueling weeks, and receive their Hard Iron Swords from the instructor. Now that they're allowed to leave Serabourg, the Geomchis take on the starter quests to face off against the foxes, rabbits, raccoons, and wolves outside the city. The Geomchis go about wiping out everything in sight due to their inflated stats while everyone watches in amazement, but leaves Pale's group fearing that 505 more Weeds have appeared.

Returning to Morata, Weed's group has a much easier time clearing out the town of the vampires thanks to the buffs provided from the Ice Dragon statue. Under his growing leadership, more and more Paladins and Priests are freed from their petrification, and Weed gains the Faith stat after providing Freya prayers during cooking meals for his growing Church of Freya army. Eventually, the last portions of Morata are cleared out with Weed now leading a Freya army that consists of all the Paladins and Priests that were petrified in the town. Alongside Alveron, Weed leads the army into Morata's Black Castle ready to face off against Tori and the remainder of his vampire clan.
