What is Overlord About?
In the year 2126, there is a multiplayer role-playing game called YGGDRASIL was released. Because the game was so interactive, it quickly became viral and had an intense 12-year run.
Now, the servers of the game are about to be shut down. Aniz Ooal Gown is a guild within the game and is considered one of the strongest with 41 members. In the guild, there are only four members remaining, as the rest have quit the game.
Among them, only one character, a skeletal Overlord called Momonga continues to play the game as the leader of The Great Tomb of Nazarick. Just minutes before the servers shut down, he invites other members of the guild to play, but they refuse. He refuses to leave and stays logged in until the servers shut down.
When the games shut down, Momonga discovers that even if the servers have shut down, the game hasn’t vanished. Instead, Nazarick seems to have been transported into the game altogether with NCPs coming to life.
Momonga has been trapped in his game avatar. He cannot use any normal player functions or even log out of the game. With no option left, Momonga sets out to discover the new world. He sends a message to other guild members to see if anyone is still in the game.
