You're nothing but bones. Nothing but bones.
Must suck, eh?
But I'm a vampire loli.
I want to believe.
Wait a minute where you got that info from?
Please don' t tell me from Overlord Wiki.
Nah, found the info on some board, guy said he got the info from mandarin translators, unless the guy was bullshiting and actually got it off wiki, then it's probably bullshit.
I got info about it, from the JP wiki and the CN wiki. From what I saw it says something about an old guy who is also a professor. Didn't know he is called Anicent One.
Look! It is Risky Anon! So what is your latest shipment.
Please don't tell me you are also wearing a bulter suit!
Every demon starts has an imp and has they level up they get acess to other possible demon classes this pretty much applies to all heteromorphic races (ex:Ainz started off has skeleton mage but moved to lich, then elder lich and finnaly Overlord), if you're ever confused about how lvls work in Overlord just use D&D has a reference.
Only got the newest manga volume (3). The rest is still in transit. The special didn't have so-bin art, but I hope that I'm just too blind to see it.
>Please don't tell me you are also wearing a bulter suit!
Not yet, sadly. They were an addition for some
gold coinsI bought.
They're a bit better for handling my stuff here.
D&D uses level adjustment which works fine for a tabletop setting. I can't really imagine it working for an MMO though, because it would allow some players to start at a higher (effective) level than others. In D&D you can just give the other players more levels to match.
You're referring to the geezer who was older than Touch Me and a professor in real life right? Cause that's been brought up before in threads. Not sure if it was WN or LN though.
I take it the claims from last month that he was already translating it were frustrating attempts at misleading us, then. Oh, well. I'm just comfortable knowing we can rely on someone still.
Yes, read the light novels, the source material. Google Skythewood. You should probably just start from the beginning, because there's so much detail left out of the anime, but if you don't have time for that, start with Volume 4.
Yeah people were just desperate but Nigel explained in one last threads tha heh as yet to get the raws.
Read the LN at Skythewood and listen to the drama CD's on youtube.
>Volume 3 special
>15 pages long
Is translator-sensei here?
Technically it is a drama CD, because it's on a CD inside the BD case. Nonentheless it's a BD special too. Both at the same time. The only difference would be the numbering - depending on what you call it in the end.
So I have little theory that cmae to to me some time ago:
We know that the thirteen heroes actually consisted of other non human races but their exploits were never mentioned or spoken of, now this could be due to the passing of time and things being forgotten, but what if the slane theocracy manipulated the two players into killing each other and and spread lies and distorted the truth regarding their real exploits so that relationships between humans and non humans didn't improve, thus furthering their agenda of human supremacy by making it seem that the humans did all the work and defeated the evil gods alone, and accomplished all of this using by using their mind-control WCI Downfall of Castle and Country.
Types of magic might be the one after the special of the three ladies on sky's.
6 gods and the rest of the special of volume 2 are not translated as far as I know. Didn't see anything related to it on sky's.
>Do you have the one about the SGG?
I got everything.
Mah nigga, we need this translated ASAP.
No Nigel never translated from Jp he always translated from chinese, maybe some other translator with Sky translates Jp.
>No Nigel never translated from Jp he always translated from chinese, maybe some other translator with Sky translates Jp.
You got me wrong there, honey. I meant that the translation from chinese to english is a slogan on Sky's blog.
I'll put a mega up tomorrow for the specials of volume 2 and 3. Easier to post one link rather than a 20+ dump every time.
>I'll put a mega up tomorrow for the specials of volume 2 and 3
SATURDAYS ARE BACK!
Is she really that desperate?
No, they havent, they just arent attention fags.
Is it true we're actually getting new content tomorrow?
>fucking albedo before his waifus Aura & Mare
Do you really want to open the box anon?
Be warned, we wont be stopping until we hit the bottom.
I need more Shalltear in my life. I really do.
Is this an expired goods thread? I'm assuming yes due to OP's pic.
For the record, I translate from Chinese but I double-check against the JP. I don't know enough JP to go directly from there, but I know enough to check.
Also, I have a little surprise for you guys.
Last year, an anon asked me to translate 5 pages of the BD 4 special. Here you go.
The world of darkness filled with light.
It was a strange feeling -- though he closed his eyes, it felt like they were still open -- but after it passed, he found himself standing in a room within a building. The brief disorientation he felt as his mind switched over to a fictional world quickly faded away.
He carefully surveyed his surroundings.
The room was made of some kind of gray inorganic material, which looked like concrete, and it had a high ceiling. Though there were no obvious light sources, a side of the ceiling glowed with white light.
“Yo~ Momonga-san. Thanks for coming.”
Someone called out to him.
Suzuki Satoru -- Momonga -- had logged into YGGDRASIL countless times before, but nobody had ever spoken to him in this room, so he was confused for a moment. However, because it was a familiar voice -- or perhaps it was the voice of one of the people in this clan that he was closest to -- his mood immediately changed, and he answered:
“Ah -- Peroroncino-san, good evening. Glad you came.”
The voice addressing him came from a man with the head of a ferocious beast, with wings on his back. He wore a suit of shiny golden armor.
“Ya~ it scared me. Momonga-san is the first person I’ve ever encountered here.”
“Same here! It seems we logged in at almost the same time.”
“Well, this sort of thing happens. The real surprise is why it didn’t happen before now. After all, there should be a lot of people who get off work and log in right away, around the same time.”
His friend -- Peroroncino -- walked toward him.
With every step Peroroncino took, golden motes scattered from his armor and vanished in mid-air. Bathed in the afterglow, he cut an imposing figure.
“I’ve never seen that effect before. What’s up with that? Could it be that it’s from a data crystal dropped by monsters in the newly discovered area?”
Peroroncino’s face did not change. A regrettable deficiency was that one’s avatar could not change expressions to match one’s voice. Still, his voice was perfectly clear, and so was the happiness in his words.
“It’s a character effect, from a cash shop item.”
Momonga felt like the ground had just opened up under him. He should have displayed an emoticon, but he was not in the mood for that. Instead, he stalked up toward Peroroncino.
“No way! Why? Peroroncino-san, how could you betray me like this? How could you betray our burning-hot friendship! Didn’t we both promise to play without using cash items?”
Indeed. Though they knew that one could pay to win with cash items, they had formed a No Cash Item Alliance, their souls blazing with the idea that they could compensate for weakness with skill. More to the point, Peroroncino and Ulbert had been the ones who came up with that idea first. Being the first to betray it as well was absolutely unforgivable.
“Momonga-san, I’m sorry!”
Peroroncino put his palms together in apology, but his words were singularly unapologetic.
“You wanted to stuff all those effects in no matter what, but look now. Hasn’t your armor gotten weaker?”
In YGGDRASIL, players could design their equipment as they liked. This included their powers as well. However, abilities could not be stacked willy-nilly; the capacity of an item for data was determined by the item’s construction and the material.
In contrast, special effects took up a smaller amount of data capacity, so it was not uncommon for them to be imbued in an item to use up excess capacity.
However, Peroroncino was a powergamer, and people of that sort sought power at any cost. They were the type who obsessed over skills and character builds. Thus, devoting even a little bit of data capacity to special effects was a waste.
“Well, I know that…”
Momonga nodded, having changed his attitude. He had not been serious about advancing on Peroroncino anyway.
“Peroroncino-san, you’ve always been about power builds.”
“Indeed. I wouldn’t load useless data into my outfit.”
Peroroncino was trying to build the item combo “Sunfall”, which needed a stringent selection of many data crystals, as well as armor and weapons to install them in. Still, there was some payoff to his hard work; he had managed to duplicate the look of the item.
“That’s why I had no choice but to install the effect into my avatar with a cash shop item! You should know, right? I don’t like using cash items either. If I could stick it in my armor, I wouldn’t need to do all that. It can’t be helped. Man, I’m so envious of Touch-san’s explosive and landing special effects. I wish I had those too.”
“Ah. Those. Yeah, those are pretty flashy.”
The person in question was the leader of their clan, as well as the person Momonga was indebted to. He was in love with transforming heroes, and if the topic came up, he would be more than happy to begin discussing masked heroes who had debuted on wireless radio more than 150 years ago.
Thus, one could say that it was his style. One of his special effects was programmed to automatically trigger an explosion when he struck a certain pose. The other one--
“Still, the explosion is one thing, but those words… The first time I saw them, I honestly had no idea what kind of face to make. I mean, they’re…”
“That one? I kind of like it.”
--Justice Has Arrived. The words would appear behind him, when he took the appropriate pose.
“Eh? Seriously? Peroroncino-san, you’re amazing. You’re really amazing.”
“Well, I think among us, only you like that sort of thing.”
“Ah, it’s true, my big sis said she wasn’t into it… Wait, does that mean I’m the one with weird taste?”
“...If I agree with you, it’ll reflect on Touch-san’s tastes too, so I’ll reserve comment.”
“...Isn’t that the same as just agreeing with me?”
Although their expressions had not changed, the mood in the air had become very solemn. Well, it was not really that gloomy. The fact was that they spent more time making jokes.
For some reason, talking about these unimportant things made him very happy.
He felt like he could keep chatting like this forever, but that would only impose on his friend Peroroncino, and he wanted to see his other friends too.
Momonga pointed to the tunnel.
“We shouldn’t talk here. Let’s go to the meeting point.”
“Yes, yes, I got it.”
The two of them walked forward, with matching strides.
You are the saviour this LN deserves.
>burning hot friendship

Where did they go so wrong?
When did 5 pages become so short for me ?
I think its obvious she did.
As to why she would run away its likely because she did want to become a babymaker since they have breeding requirements for the brack scriptres.
My personal favorite theory would be that she was just full on nuts and getting a free pass to murder everything and godly skill just made her a spoiled brat.
Thanks, though I now wonder how Touch-me's special effects would work in the New World.
Would no one be able to tell that Justice had arrives?
I think they mentioned only being able to understand other languages orally, not in the written form
No, unless they had a text-translating item.
If Entoma had poison immunity, she'd win for sure.
Entoma can upgrade with Nazarick's treasury, and Nazarick's gear is much stronger than NW gear.
Question Nigel where you read your CN verison of OL? The one I have had closed down.
A bigger question is, would Entoma even wanna upgrade her armour and weapons?
To them, in fact all the NPCs their current state is what they have left in memory of their creators.
>download translated novels
>horribly formated mediocre translation without consistency
>mfw I have to copy text and format/change it myself while reading
Why is this allowed? Well, it's fun in it's own way, but still...
She's similar to Ainz and Co. in the 'having fun while killing and being overpowered' aspect.
She just wasn't on Team Ainz so she gets portrayed as a baddie since she kills Swords of Durkness.
Not him but what are the best downloaded versions anyhow? Epubs? I can't figure out how to make the epub illustrations not for ants. Granted the pdfs usually aren't all that amazing either, but at least they are serviceable.
The word vampire is usually generalized for all blood suckers, but there's actually 3 types, vampire, origin vampire and shinso(true blood).
Normal vampires are originally humans, who gained powerful muscles rivaling weapons and fast regeneration from wounds. But their greatest weapon is to "create lower tier vampires".
A normal vampire can create a lower tier with less mental capabilities. True bloods can create vampires with the same mental capabilities of a human.( of course, they can create even lower tier ones if they wish to)
Another specialty of vampires are their mystic eyes. mystic eye have the ability to mind control their opponent, with a stronger effect on the opposite sex. True blood Shalltear have the skills listed above, and more.
One is "summon kazoku(familiars, i forgot how they translated it in the subs), which can summon monsters such as vampric wolves and other monsters.
Another is 'mist form' which turn their body to mist and completely immune to opponent's physical attacks. Another is 'blood craze(mad blood? the thing that made her ugly)
Oh my god this shit is not new and I'm too drunk to continue. I have the attention span of a goldfish, pls just highlight passages you want me to translate, not something we all knew already.
My god, this is tiring, I give up, just highlight whatever passage you want me to translate, fuck this.
This one sounds interesting.
600 years ago, 4 god descend upon the world. They were titled Light(life), Dark(death), Fire, Wind, Water, Earth.
together they build the slain theocracy's foundation and left behind artifacts known as god items.(the world items), they are kept in safe guard.
No, idea, the passage went to rambling about shalltear's abilities but nothing about the origin vampire. From the way it's listed it's under true blood. So maybe its born a vampire, but not true blood, meaning vampire+human procreation. Just assuming.
Yes, but what downloadable file can keep the formating on sky's site in the first place? I'm not too familiar with that kinda stuff, so all I know of are the epubs and pdfs floating around.
I don't mind giving Sky's blog more hits, but backups must be made. It's just that the current choices I know of are pretty inferior in illustration quality.
Evileye cost Entoma the Voice that her creator gave her, Entoma will never again speak with the Voice her Creator gifted her.
Im pretty sure she is willing to go to all lengths to make her pay.
Ainz believes that the 6 gods are from the same world as him. Even though 600 years have pass, some may still live as the concept of age could be changed by class.(Just like how Ainz is undead, therefore immortal until defeated).
Slain worshiped the 6 as gods and created a religion around them, the kingdom, empire and other surrounding states all follow the worship of the 4 gods, but we'll leave the talk of the 4 gods later(WHY?)
Slain's kokusei(im not sure what this translate to, their country's code?) is beating other stronger face will bring glory to human and the theocracy. Ainz believes that amonst all the races in this world, human is one of the weaker ones.
They can only live on plains, living in forest and mountains and they fall prey to monsters in concealment. there are even kingdoms that prey on humans as a foodsource.
I just hope Maruyama knows about He-man and Skeletor because thats a hilarious reference that I'd like to see happen.
True blood is like demons who invented vampirism. See Arcueid from Tsukihime. Shalltear is true blood, so obviously an origin is much weaker.
notepad does a better job at preserving formatting with word wrap than pdf or epub will anon
I suggest notepad because you can always move from there, as to the actual task of getting all that text to a file there are likely programs
she has backups anon
empire had 4 gods, but there was no reference to players or such things
>she has backups anon
Yes, a limited amount of Backups, which are in fact a cash shop item, but they still need a voice to be used, which is why Entoma now has Arches voice.
Her original Voice, which her Creator probably spent a good deal of time making in some sort of Vocaloid program, is gone forever.
Thats like destroying the simmering teapots watch that Aura has, or Peroroncinos book that Shalltear has.
Yes, you are right, I did meant what I said. I'm confusing myself, and I'm starting to see doubles of everything.
Everyone else> 4.
The reason why humans have such a dominance on this world is because 500 years ago, the 8 kings of greed went on a conquest of the world.
They weakened all the other races, and their intention seems to be for the benefit of the human race.
Slain uses their religion to unite their people and fight off all other races. If the 6 gods still exists in the shadow of slaine's government, and if they are really Players, they might have grown countless lv100 warriors among their ranks. Therefore is with great caution that I put them on the highest risk priority.
The day I use twitter is the day I lose respect for the internet
>Everyone else> 4.
I've only seen the 4 mentioned for the Empire specifically. I'm not sure what the Kingdom has for religion.
>The reason why humans have such a dominance on this world is because 500 years ago, the 8 kings of greed went on a conquest of the world.
the 200 years ago when everyone got crushed by the demon king counts more
>Slain uses their religion to unite their people and fight off all other races. If the 6 gods still exists in the shadow of slaine's government, and if they are really Players, they might have grown countless lv100 warriors among their ranks. Therefore is with great caution that I put them on the highest risk priority.
Slaine is cited as the reason humans are not a shit. Since the only beastman race has a buffer state with the dragon girl ruling.
As for elite units, that was Nigan's force. The BS are stronger most likely but they can't possibly be much higher than clem. Certain Death is the only one with potential to be player level and we still don't know about that one.
You would think the God of Death of the Theocracy to be an undead like Ainz, how could he have died, leader of Zuranon (maybe he snaped)? Do those Zuranon guys really want to
destory all life?
The god of death might not have been an undead, he could've been an angel (you know the whole angel of death cliche).
Or the theocracy could just be a bunch of hypocrites, angels are a heteromorphic race yet they are seen as messangers of their gods.
I always thought Undead to be closer to humans, since most of them used to be, in most settings like in the New world undead are the rencarnations of mortals, by evil forces (?), though that probably doesn´t apply to Yggdrasil
Maybe they follow how the vampires are tiered.
Human turned vampires, vampires born from other vampires, and true bloods.
Though I find it hard to imagine a true blood zombie and what it could do.
What's a elder lich really, a really old lich, or a really powerful lich? Do they start off as humans?
Not in Yggdrasil since Ainz base form was a Skeleton Mage, but in the New World they seem to be reincarnations of dead humans, if they have memories of their past live´s maybe they could cooperate with humans and be treated as something similar, but it seems they are new beings created of dark energy(?) , so no past live I think.
Then the only way to know if he was/is(?) an undead would be to know if they have visual confirmation of him, but I think he blew the Earth Miko who was like their vigilance system, but maybe they were watching the SL scripture before Ainz deployed his counter vigilance measures.
So here's something I found the author wrote on his twitter that he want to do a character poll and write a bonus chapter for the most popular character, also when someone asked him for vol.10 release date he said "no idea, ask the publisher"
I always thought Demi would make him an exobody(?),kind of like pic related, but with a boner. And thats the only way I can think of.Or change his class to something that can impregnate.
>notepad does a better job at preserving formatting with word wrap than pdf or epub will anon
>I suggest notepad because you can always move from there, as to the actual task of getting all that text to a file there are likely programs
Yes, however I do not know how to put the illustrations properly. Ideally I'd want a program that can preserve the proper format but also plug in full size images with optimized/enlarged options.
The easiest way for what you said from my limited understanding is to just save it as .htm, however upon clicking on the picture it doesn't get any bigger.
The text formating isn't the problem here, since there's plenty of methods for that. It's the pictures. I've visited many LN threads, and not a single one has ever offered a solution to this, which is a shame since novels like Overlord have really splendid drawings that enhance the reading experience when inserted in a timely manner.
He was done last year now he's probably giving the finishing touch's on everything, checking for plot holes, foreshadowing things, tying to tie it in with other stuff from previous novels or BD's, etc...
>After a "live action" movie is annouced.
>"live action" movie
Oh god have mercy on our souls, they would probably just use shitty CG for Ainz and the rest of the cast
>can a Demon even impregnate an Insect?
Well who knows anon, Demiurge needs to do some "experiments" to determine that.
Not aussie here, If NPCs could develop personalities beyond their flavor text, could they posibly develop romantic feelings for one another? Say Demiurge and Mare, or Shaltear and Albedo
>implying Demi isn't alredy giving Mare sex ed
>implying Shalltear and Albedo could love anyone besides Ainz
Man you need to pay attention Aussie.
The Aussies just woke up and decided to shitpost.
You know they would use for Demi's tail and Albedo's wings and the fight scene's, I don't even want to imagine what those would look like.
Also off topic but who do you think could play Shalltear and the twins?
>Red hot Choke Pear
I'm guessing it went in her other mouth.
It's practically guaranteed, the Supreme Overlord of Death just rekt two armies at the same time without even trying and defeat a fully-geared Gazef in one-on-one combat. Plus, if they rez Clem, Clemeneko will tell them of the mighty Momon the Elder Lich.
>After Ainz Oaal Gown appeared, the undead mage society turned into a bunch of undead NEETs wearing Overlord T-Shirts with couple of their members always being in really shitty cosplay.
>There's Dark Young plushies on the sofa and a table where they're making an imitation of the scene of battle with greenstuff.
>There's three liches meticulously painting their figurines.
>There's a fujoshi skeleton reading R+18 BL doujin with Ainz's face on the cover.
Landfall comes back after long absence to find out if Ainz Oaal Gown is a member of the secret undead magic society only to see this shit going on.
So did Touch-Me's armor explosion do actual damage or was it purely cosmetic? Also he must have been pretty big nerd to go watch kamen rider when it's 150 years old in their world.
So what would happen if Ainz put on the armor and struck a pose in the NW? Would it actually do damage since even gimmicky things from Yggdrasil seem to have a more litteral effect in the NW.
True, but the NW is a real world and things like explosions should have serious effect (in theory anyways).
Well the NWers can't read jap so they would probably think it's some eldritch language that means destroyer or something.
>If it didn't do damage in the game, I doubt it would do damage in the NW. Spells and abilities are faithfully reproduced
In Ygg, desperation aura cripples those under its AoE. In NW, desperation aura Lv5 kills grown trolls and ogres instantly. It can be argued that the difference of desperation aura's performance lies in the resistances of those subject to it, but then again, what if the new worlders couldn't even put up a resistance against cosmetic explosions?
Well items act differently in the NW, for example the goblin horn should only have summoned the goblins temporarily, but in the NW they're a permanent existance and have their own thoughts and personnalities, so it's not that far off to think that the armor might behave differently in the NW.
Uh, you're not making any sense. Desperation Aura can kill people in its Level V form. That's exactly what it did.
Cosmetic explosions are basically illusions, and illusions don't do damage.
Or it might just act the same way. Although, in TF2, the taunts can actually kill people if they connect. If TM's explosion effect could do such a thing, I'd say it would carry over.
>Great, now Demiurge is spending all his time with Entoma-sama, he still wont even look my way.
>Desperation Aura can kill people in its Level V form
Ainz unwittingly turned on desperation aura Lv 5 during the first declaration of loyalty of the floor guardians at the colosseum. Since they were lv 100s, they had ample resistances, so atmost the guardians were spooked, perhaps with stats lowered, except for chair who just got wet. At Lv 1, it forced Hamsuke, a relatively strong creature in the new world, to submit.
Bearing that in mind, I wouldn't even dismiss that a simple cosmetic explosion could kill weak new worlders
So that means Ainz is confirmed not to be a P2W fag and used actual skill to reach lvl100.
Can't she be both? Maybe she and some of the other generals represent more than one sin.
Just for comparison, in the WN, Clementine's brother mistook Ainz for a reincarnation of their Black God, and had started worshipping Ainz there on the spot.
Ainz, who had not seen this man before, of course was weirded out by it. He then slew a giant lizard and converted it into an undead ride, but all that did was make Clembro worship harder in praise while Ainz just rode off into the sunset.
Still, it is still an explosion, though it might just be a mere firecracker in power. Even small firecrackers can severely injure, or even kill, if it explodes on you at point blank.
Think of Cocytus deeply exhaling beside a lv 1 NW human. You should be able to deduce how chilled the lv 1 human would be.
Odd but true in Momonga's case. After all, the one time he did go on a spending spree was for Wish Upon a Star. But ironically, he never actually used it until entering the New World. And he did end up with whatever garapon junk he got while rolling for that ring, some of them being things like the hourglass, if I remember correctly.
I think it's more like the explosion is an illusion that looks like an explosion rather than an actual explosion. There are plenty of illusion magics that have been used in the story like invisibility or the disguise magic Momonga uses, but it is never said or implied to have any tangible effect.
It cant be known "for sure" but cosmetic effects are things that only have a visual or auditory effect and don't effect anything else. Going by MMO logic, at least.
The reason he never used it is because unlike in the NW where you can litteraly wish for anything, in Yggdrasil they would a maximum of 10 choices for the wish and most of time they were jokes instead of anything beneficial, and plus he bet an entire months salary to get it so he probably didn't want to use it.
Because it was a super rare item you could only get if you spent money and was pretty much a one in a million shot not matter what amount of money you spent, he also might have gotten it since he was roleplaying, he probably thought it would be fitting that an all powerful overlord of magic to have something like that.
Or he just wanted to have a cool wish ring, I don't know.
So what do you guys think Ainz life was like back when he was Satoru Suzuki? We know he basically spent all his time in Yggdrasil, was a loner, didn't really like his job and that his mother died when he was very young but besides that we that we know nothing else, so considering the world he lived in and everything else what do you fuys think he was like.
Thank you very much!
But be carefull when translating while intoxicated. The police will revoke your translation licence if they find out.
Also, as I said, I put up a mega (link above) with everything I've found inside the second and third manga volume. I'ts convinient.
I know it's quite a lot and I don't want to force my expectations on you to translate everything.
Translate what you yourself deem interesting. 2nd part of the 2nd manga volume's special looks like an interview with so-bin.
He was competent at his job, but didn't have enough motivation to further climb the job ladder. He even goes into internal monologues over how he has to step up to acting like a boss rather than what he was comfortable with, which was just taking orders and executing them well.
Good guy anon giving us new Overlord material, thanks man.
True, but he said in one the volumes that one of the reasons he didn't go higher was because he couldn't improvise when things didn't go according to what he planned.
So at least Satoru was competent and capable of managing things at the middle level, but was afraid of screwing up and being unable to recover from it at the higher levels.
At least he's innovative enough to take advantage of his subordinates' blind faith to have them explain what he's not getting.
Yeah fair enough, but what I'm really curious about is his childhood.
The auithor alredy talked in a magazine about the old world in Overlord, it was polluted to shit, people started living in dome cities, a war errupted in europe between 2 cities, there was the arcology war and the gap between the rich and the poor grew so large that poor people couldn't get basic education.
It's shown that Ainz had a job so he need to have had higher eduction to be able to get it, so fom all this we can assume he had to have been born into a relatively rich family.
Honestly I kind of want Maryuma to dedicate novel to Ainz, giving him more backstory talking about when he was human, so he could a get some more character developement.
The offiical English release by Yen appears to have edited Ainz into being a young kid instead of a salaryman, going by their description for the series calling him a boy. You got your Monkey's Paw wish.
Until they release the first volume, I am more willing to bet that their unpaid intern is just trolling us, since this is just retarded. Leaving aside that it is stated in plain text he was a salaryman,
1: Ygddrasil run for 12 years, so even if he started at 13, he is still 25 at the start of the series.
2: What was the second rule of AOG?
3: The illusion Ainz assumed when he is Momon also has to be changed.
4: A slew of character interactions now won't make sense. No real point in listing them.
But renember anon, this is Yenpress and they're kind of retards when it comes to some of their choices in translating certain things from series (refer to NGNL translations for reference).
If the real world was ruined ecologically and sociologically, I think YGGDRASIL and whatever the nature of this New World is were actually efforts to send humans to a young, fertile, healthy world, whether a second tier of virtual reality or an alternate dimension or whatever. I can't really imagine how this all works beyond accepting the setting at complete face value and running on fairy tale logic.
They actually updated the summary, completely taking out the "boy". It now reads:
>The once popular game Yggdrasil was supposed to shut down that day. Everyone was supposed to be logged out automatically. But the players who stayed online past the moment the servers went quiet found themselves transported to a game world made real. Leading them is Momonga--a man whose love of games in the real world brought him only loneliness, now a skeletal sorcerer. The legends of Momonga and his guild begin here!
That can't be true because it changing pretty much everything. They would literally rewriting novel.
Though I remember Tokyopop and some other publishers doing this with manga (not to mention anime/4kids), but it's 2016 already...
>actually efforts to send humans to a young, fertile, healthy world, whether a second tier of virtual reality or an alternate dimension or whatever
The whole virtual reality dosen't make because
a) it would just be an illusion so humanity would still be fucked
b)I honestly the author should stay from anything leading to a "it was all a dream/stuck in a MMO" bullshit
Now the dimensions thing could work, we even got some spoilers a few threads back about this but they all turned out to be fake (they were taken from a fanfic).
I can't even begin imagining what kind of butthurt one would get spending shitton of money to get something with no value IRL just to be cucked by someone else getting it from first try for nothing. That probably would be PTSD for life.
Good thing I don't send money on games.
I don't know about that. Hoarding is a pretty common MMO habit.
Momonga probably has ton of low-level and leveling crap that he hoards out of expectation he could give them to his comrades if they choose to return.
I suppose I should feel sorry for them, but I just don't. I guess I've long since given up on humanity.
Feel free to call me edgy or something.
Anyway, think of the positive aspects. The more censors exercise their power, the more popular fan translations will become, leading to people learning to rely on alternative ways of receiving information, leading to faster growth of inter-net information networks, leading to better and faster public awareness in cases of media bias and corruption.
Sorry to bring RL into this.
It's fine, I just want people to enjoy the real Overlord and not some censored version, hopefuly Nigel will keep translating the LN and Maryuma will keep it good, honestly that's all I want.
But even if he started gaming as a boy, he wasn't lonely until his guild mates left him, which by then he was an adult. That is totally wrong. We have no details of his life as a boy. We just know Peroroncino was his friend who he paired up with to play Yggdrasil. Other than that, we know nothing of his life. We don't know when he lost all his real life friends or his parents.
This is literally on the same level as Touch Me being a dragonkin and using martial arts and beating up 30 people at once in the WC tournament despite clearly using a sword and shield. All because Sebas was modeled after him.
The only things we know about him are that he was a loner, his mother died when he was young and his only real friends were his guildmates that eventually started to leave the game due to real life, that's it.
Not that guy, but from volume 1:
For Momonga, this was a trash item and it was strange he didn’t throw it away yet. Being able to find a proper use for this item right now, Momonga felt really clever. There other advantage of this item was that once the Goblins were summoned, they would only disappear after dying and not after a set amount of time has passed.
I remember a magic caster talking about the god of fire before Shalltear cut his head off.
A live action would be better if all the new worlders were played by people, while all the NPCs were CG. It'd be ok for them to have that uncanny valley effect since they came from a video game in the first place.
Is Ainz going to bone Albedo in the next volume?
If any author would have the balls to have the MC actually have physical relationship with one of his harem, it's Maryuma, but before that can happen we need to answer the big question.
lets say that ainz can have sex with albedo
could she get pregnant?
Fuckin magic anon, how does it work.
She's still is an NPC, only difference is that now she's alive, but she can have children since very other biological function works.
That's retarded. She's an NPC because she's not a player. That doesn't mean she can't be alive. The quality of a player is special, it's why the 2 players from the 13 heroes were hot shit when one of them would otherwise be fodder.
He's the sort who doesn't bother spending extra money on food because it all becomes shit in the end. His room is bare of everything but the stuff needed to play Ygg.
The first part of BD4 is Suzuki Satoru coming home.
>imagine Lupus on her hands and knees, a nervous look on her face as she sees the giant dick about to impale her. Despite the fear that it's too big for her, her wolf instincts to be bred keep her frozen in place as her vagina secretes copious amounts of lubrication so she can accept the cock. Her eyes will go wide and her glistening lips will flare outwards to engulf the head of the penis pushing into her. A soft cry will escape her lips as it sinks further into her depths, her body demanding she accept all of it. Once its fully inside her, stretching her, she'll feel the powerful thrusting in and out, sending shockwaves of pleasure through her. When she feels the knot start to swell there will be a moment of panic when she tries to escape. At that time you must grab her hips and hold your dick as deep as possible inside her, leaning forward to nip at her neck with your teeth to force her instincts and obedience until your knot has swollen to full size. At that point you will be locked inside her and it will ensure she can do nothing but accept your seed. The tight seal from her being stretched and filled will make sure that not a single drop escapes from her super heated vagina, and you will see her reach down and rub her lower belly with one hand as she's amazed at the pleasure she's experiencing by having her womb filled with thick hot semen, her vagina going into spasms of pleasure as it milks you dry.
>She's an NPC because she's not a player.
Momonga isn't a player either.
Momonga is an ex-player and Albedo is an ex-NPC. The words carry very little practical worth anymore, except to distinguish between who was what before coming to the New World.
It's not the sole focus. It's more about how well the author writes the character in that his libido doesn't just automatically turn on and off at certain points of a plot, but rather it's kinda natural. Like if he sees a busty chick he gets a boner, or he's whimsical with his wife and strokes her ass in public and gets smacked for it.
MT has a lot of things people can nit pick about, but compared to the rest I've read, the author really integrated sex into it smoothly. Granted the MC himself may not be to everyone's taste, but at no point do you think he's not in character regarding that shit or wonder "Why the fuck won't you fuck her?" that you do with ya know every other LN MC.
Cause before you can even think that, the MC already monologues about that kinda stuff. His attitude also slowly changes over time as he ages, something you rarely see in other novels outside the likes of Overlord. By the time you get to the parts where he's a parent he's a genuine doting father.
Because someone said that Albedo couldn't get pregnant due to being an NPC. Of course it matters. She may have been an NPC in the past but she is not now, so she can do anything a living being can do.
People hating on Mushoku Tensei are retarded
Just a friendly reminder of how the ln ends
Yes but I'm not arguing that she can't get pregnant, if every other biological function like brething and heartbeat works why wouldn't reproduction, but the fact still remains that she is an NPC like every other in Nazarick and Ainz is player like all the others before him.
I won't deny that but I didn't wanna invite
that one fag who always joins MT discussions and proclaims Rudy sucks cause he was a lolicon who fapped to his niece and therefore the series deserves to burn in hell when the entire point was how jarring the contrast was and how he turns over a new leaf.and well other people like him. It's also an Overlord thread, so there's bound to be many people who hate MT and think it's garbage cause there's a harem and MC is special.
I'm done, I'm tired and I've argued with everything I have, if you won't accept it then what ever, she's been called an NPC by the author, in the LN and in character sheets, that's my proof.
I think it's possible provided Ainz gets a happy ending, it'll be different obviously, and there won't be as much detail cause Maruyama loves leaving things to imagination except during the horror/sadistic scenes.
It's not like I don't think Maruyama can't write about lewd stuff, cause he clearly did in vol 5 with the fat guard raping the girl in the brothel but yeah, there's no happy sex.
Enri and Enfi are kinda proof of this. Happy sex is off screened.
I'm not the anon you were talking, but does it matter if she's a NPC or not now that they are in the new world?
They already showed a bit of independence in their thoughts, so I think they aren't just blindly following their programming. Cocytus became friends with the lizard people for example.
NPCs are very defined. Regardless of similarities, NPCs are still NPCs just like how a player is always a player no matter how their race changes.
This is proven by how Juugem and friends can't learn even the most basic agricultural skills cause they are capped at their summoned level. They can get smarter and experienced just like Cocytus does with the lizards, but they can't acquire RPG stats.
That's the very definition of an NPC in the NW. They can't statistically grow. They can only grow as a person and in non-tangible values.
Everything else about them is the same as NW denizens. But this is what separates them apart from others, just like how players have very easy leveling grinds, have no limits regardless of their actual aptitudes, etc etc.
These are practically established facts, so whatever superficial cisgender non-sense you wanna pull it doesn't matter. The word NPC is not meant to be used in the context you are using it and stop treating it as if NPC is derogative. NPCs are just another kind of being in the NW.
Oh then it's possible, but only if Maruyama chooses so. Nowhere is it hinted Maruyama will choose to let Ainz get laid. It's practically a coin flip at this point with Albedo being a wild card and all.
Just saying, don't expect it to happen even if it could. Predicting Maruyama is madness. Archives is proof of this.
Anon no one is using the NPC term has derrogative, one guy questioned if she could have children cuz she's an NPC, that's it, he wasn't sure so he asked a question, and people corrected him, you're the one that started the whole "they aren't NPC's" bullshit.
You're right, being called an NPC doesn't make something an NPC, but they were made in yggdrasil has NPC's so they are NPC's.
Don't give attention to these bug-lovers anon.
Albedo was pretty much made for Ainz.
>they were made in yggdrasil as NPC's
Thanks for proving my point, I guess. They are ex-NPCs. You used past tense yourself just now, and they are largely referred to as NPCs in the past tense in the LN as well.
>you're the one that started the whole "they aren't NPC's" bullshit.
Your reading comprehension is very poor if you think I'm the one who said they aren't NPCs. Like, below middle school tier poor. Please read the thread over again, and remember this, there's more than one person talking part in an anonymous discussion.
Except their "NPC qualities" are gone. With regards to video games, an NPC is by definition a character controlled by an AI. Since all the ex-NPCs are now living, breathing people with their own ambitions and motivations, they cannot be NPCs.
You are right.
So... WHO IS BEST MAIDO?
Would Solution's popularity skyrocket if she took Shalltear's fake-dick?
I want more Evileye. The author made the mistake of making her too interesting and now she needs to be added to the harem.
You guys are making Albedo sad.
Settle it in a duel or let's talk about hot 2d girls.
In the town he now owns? I doubt it. Momon is essentially being held hostage on their behalf, plus we all know Ainz is going to improve living conditions. People outside the town might because they just don't understand.
Pretty sure E-Rantel will become the Disney Land of the New World.
Noble father:Kids wonder where going to travel this year?
Kids: Where dady?.
Nf: E rantel.
K: wooh! I heard they aded giant Skeleton roller coaster!
NF: The f*** is a roller coaster?.
>real world science
>lives in an era where they live in biodomes and have nanomachines influencing their daily lives and the average human has mechanical organs due to excessive pollution
I doubt he knows jack shit. The tech is so advanced it'd be a miracle if he knew how to fix his own heart.
Have you never read Shieldbro? It's the same logic. NW runs on RPG stats. Making guns will simply put your shitters as level 1 gunners. Who will this benefit? Surely not his NPCs that can't level up or change their given stats.
Would guns and modern technology be compatible with Martial Arts? If you can get Archer classes in the NW would you be able to get Gunner classes, and shot faster and stronger than a guns fixated power?
Complex technology is outside his knowledge even with magic, I bet. He and his minions can teleport, have instant conversations, heal from injuries, etc.
Basic technology is virtually useless to him. Remember that the power of science was always the democratization of power through techniques, uber beings don't need this shit
I'm not asking why he doesn't make nanomachines. The New World is essentially medieval technology, there must be something he can do that would be an objective improvement.
Why not? Sure he can nuke an army all by himself, but he cannot be absolutely everywhere at once. He needs technology to give his conquered people an objective advantage over neighboring kingdoms.
