Volume 5, Chapter 4: "Grades"

Short Summary Edit

In real life, Hye Yeon checks the home mailbox, and finds that the results of Lee Hyun's GED exam have finally arrived. She checks the report, and is overjoyed to see that her brother was able to pass the test; meaning that Hyun has officially graduated high school. Hye Yeon also stops by the hospital to inform grandmother of the good news.

Meanwhile, Hyun spends his time exercising at Ahn Hyundo's dojang, celebrates passing the GED exam with its members, and invites his sister and her friends to watch them work out. On the way home, Hyun thinks about his sister's future knowing that she has the looks and smarts to establish her own life, and hopes that Hye Yeon will one day find herself a good husband.

At the Great Society Rehabilitation Center, Dr. Cha Eunhee continues to watch over Seoyoon playing Royal Road. Despite the patient showing some positive signs, Eunhee is left discouraged that Seoyoon continues to remain closed off to everyone around her, and only ever seems to be interested in hunting. Within Royal Road, Seoyoon decides to head east to begin hunting in the untouched Plains of Despair since more and more players have been appearing in Rosenheim Kingdom recently. 

On Weed's side, the construction of the Rosenheim crypt has become such a hot topic that people are willing to pay Weed some won in real life to have it showcased on tv shows or books. Following the huntress hunt, Weed and his workers finally complete the crypt, which is now known as the Tomb of King Theodarren. As a result, Weed's friendship with the Rosenheim Kingdom increases immensely after completing the B-Rank Quest. He takes advantage of this by asking King Theodarren for a new sword, and some soldiers to help with his B-Rank Quest to defeat Bar Khan Demoph's Necromancers in the Plains of Despair, which the king accepts, and sends Weed off to collect his rewards.

Arriving at the Serabourg training grounds, Weed uses his Rosenheim reputation points to purchase the Sword of Cold Loteu, 10 Royal Knights, and 404 soldiers that include captains Becker, Hosram, Buren, and Dale; the 4 former rookie soldiers that fought alongside Weed in the Lair of Litvart. With the 414 Rosenheim soldiers, Weed next arrives at Rosenheim's Order of Freya to pick up his 50 Priests. They then go through the order's Teleport Gate to get sent off to the Plains of Despair.

Back at King Theodarren's tomb, tens of thousands of players are seen visiting the crypt in order to receive the buff from the Sphinx statue. They also leave behind copper and silver donations due to Weed's engraved message asking people to "donate" to those in need.
