  • Darkoneko Hellsing

    Even with a low level character, she basically destroyed that door just by pushing it XD That… doesn’t bode well for NPC houses.

    • Regulos14

      A year has passed already so I’m pretty sure she’s max level with high quality gear.

      • Darkoneko Hellsing

        No, the 1 year mentionned on page 21 is present time. The moment he “disconnected” from real life, which is the point of the past he’s telling the story of, happens likely a few days after he started playing.

        • Tsuki_Ouji

          Um, page 21 states rather explicitly that a year has passed since he started playing. And now we’re here.

          • Darkoneko Hellsing

            Yes, and from that point, he’s telling a story of the past.

          • Michael Halpern

            The outfit the character is wearing indicates the passage of time, its been a year

    • Michael Halpern

      actually it does, it says that the designers put thought into destructibility, and consequence, obviously certain assets are likely indestructible, or don’t stay broken for long, but imagine what that means for dungeons and fortresses and stuff, so long as theres a mechanism to control the griefing…

  • He was warned during character creation.

    • This is quite a bit different from the warning at character creation ^_^;

  • Meoi Lass

    yup. called it. matrix/SAO with magic irl.
    i will definitely keep reading.

  • trantos01

    Of course the biggest problem of our hero/heroine current has is that she/he seems to be experiencing the effect of two different minds complete with their own memories, experiences, behaviors etc coming together in an uncontrolled head-on collision.

    Unless she (lets go with that pronoun since that is the body we are currently looking at) gets some help (likely the magical variety will be needed) fast, any remaining magical stability will quickly crumble to nothing.

    • Tsuki_Ouji

      But apparently not the complete memories of either.

      • trantos01

        Hard to really say one way or another with the jumble that is her head right now.

        • Tsuki_Ouji

          I’d think “52 card pickup” might be a better analogy.

    • Phillip Duda

      Shme can refer to shmis or shmer self..

      Ah I quit, Futurama reference blah blah.
      *flips a table for no reason*

  • Jean Marcel

    Does this captain have some kinda enforced quota of people he must bring in every month, or something? Because this whole “immediately trying to arrest an obviously confused person for accidentally breaking a door” routine is as creepy as it gets.

    • Small town guard likes to feel big.

    • Jordan Bai

      the captain an NPC I’m guessing so he’s just acting out his part.
