Volume 4, Chapter 6: "Siege of Odin Castle"

Short Summary Edit

Having finished his sculpting work with Darone, Weed departs from Rega itching to get back to fighting.

Meanwhile somewhere in Rosenheim, the Geomchis continue to go about hunting monsters. The students remain worried that Weed's skills will dull knowing that he spent weeks sculpting with Darone, but master Geomchi assures them that predators like Weed never forget how to hunt.

The setting switches over to Fort Odin along the borders of the Britten Alliance and the Aidern Kingdom to the south. Now under the control of the Prosperity Guild, the Balkin Guild attacks the fort with a massive army to reclaim what was originally theirs. Weed is seen supporting the defense of the fort as a mercenary wearing a mask disguise, and goes about killing many invading Balkin Guild soldiers to get back into the fighting grove while looting the items dropped from those he kills.

Returning to the Geomchis, they begin exploring the southern mountain areas of Rosenheim, and are spotted by Gran, Halman, Margaux, and Levi of the Dwichigi Quartlet. The four player killers agree to attack the Geomchis, but are shocked to discover that their opponents are really skilled at sword combat; resulting in all 4 members of the Dwichigi Quartlet dying. After logging back into Royal Road once their death penalty wore off, the Dwichigi Quartlet desire to get revenge against the Geomchis, and return to attack them with 300 members from the Ica Guild that the 4 player killers joined recently. The Geomchis are unable to deal with the massive army led by the Dwichigi Quartlet, and are all eventually killed.

In real life, Ahn Hyundo, the four instructors, and the 500 practitioners, regroup at the dojang following their slaughter to the Dwichigi Quartlet. Despite their loss, Hyundo's interest in the game strengthens since he now feels like a real soldier that should take on Royal Road with all his heart, which the rest of the dojang members agree. The result is Hyundo writing down a revenge kill-list containing the Dwichigi Quartlet and the Ica Guild.

Back in Royal Road, the victorious Dwichigi Quartlet and Ica Guild members are left stunned in disbelief that the only loot dropped from the Geomchis are Black Swords and starter Barley Bread.
