Volume 8, Chapter 7: "Classical Concert"

Short Summary Edit

In real life, Lee Hyun spends his time on the home computer uploading video footage of his hunts in the Rotten Lich's Dungeon to the Hall of Fame website. He then switches over to the Dark Gamers Union website where he reads up on how the Cold Roses Guild's expedition in the Northern Continent is off to a rough start due to not being prepared for the cold weather. Hyun also sees amongst the posts that people's interest in the newly unlocked Necromancer class continues to grow, which excites him knowing that the time is getting closer for when he can sell off the loot he got off Lich Shire for lots of won. Afterwards, Hyun heads out to meet with his Royal Road companions in real life while Lee Hye Yeon remains at home since today's the day she gets the results of her Korea University interview.

At a cafe near the university, Hyun's companions all appear one after another for the meet up. Ahn Hyundo, Chung Il Hoon, Choe Jong Bom, Ma Sang Bom, and Roi Lee, are the first to appear followed by Oh Dongman, Shin Hye Min, Kim In Young, Yeon Hee Park, Yoon Soo Park, Choi Ji Hoon, and Jeong Hyo-Lynn. The last of which shocks everyone when they realize that they've befriended a celebrity singer. Hyun joins up with them at the cafe shortly after. 

With everyone now gathered, they head off to the concert. Hyun and his companions take their seats to watch a classical French orchestra performance, but with the exception of Jeong Hyo-Lynn, everyone else ends up falling asleep. Afterwards, Hyun and company close out the day eating dinner together at a nearby restaurant. With the day over at this point, everyone exchanges e-mails and phone numbers, and then head home.

At home, Hyun discovers that Hye Yeon not only got accepted into Korea University, but also received a scholarship. As a result, Hyun realizes that he will need to keep his promise to attend college since his sister achieved her side of the deal. Hyun rewards Hye Yeon with 30,000,000 won that he was saving up for his sister's college fund, but since her college tuition will be covered by the scholarship, she uses the money to buy her own game capsule for Royal Road.

Meanwhile within Royal Road, rumors are heard near a Freya Church that the Hermes Guild has just about taken over the entirety of the Haven Kingdom, and that Bard Ray has been crowned as its new King. A large movement of templars are then seen exiting the church to go somewhere, which leaves the people watching in confusion as to what's going on.

Information includes tricky quests to become a Necromancer, using fresh bodies and having an affinity with death to produce their first undead minions, and needing to kill a lot of those types of creatures to increase the Necromancer's abilities.
  6. Since people are now getting more and more interested in the Necromancer class, Hyun figures that he will be able to sell Lich Shire's items, such as Bar Khan's tome, after 2 to 3 more months pass.
  7. Amongst more of the Dark Gamer posts, no one talks about craft classes, adventure classes were rare, there were many about solo combat classes, such as Paladins using healing magic or Elementalists using spirit summons to fight for them. The last thing Hyun checks in information on monsters.
