Those who haven’t been following the series. Overlord is set in the year 2138 where virtual reality is a huge gaming phenomenon. The popular game Yggdrasil, which was a popular online game, gets mysteriously shut down. The main hero, Momonga, decides to stay in the game, which transforms him into a skeleton character known as the “the most powerful wizard.” As the world continues to change, NPCs begin to become more sentient. Momonga, having no friends or family, as well as no place in society, decides to take control over the world the game has now become.
