Overlord Series Synopsis
For years, Yggdrasil has been the most popular DMMORPG (Dive Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game) on the market. However, its final day has come at last.
Remembering the many hours playing with his guildmates, player Momonga waits in the impenetrable fortress he helped build, The Great Tomb of Nazarick. During his time with Yggdrasil, Momonga fully leveled up his character, got every piece of rare loot, and put together an unbeatable team of guardian NPCs. It is no stretch to say he is sad to see it all end.
Then, when the clock strikes midnight, Momonga is surprised to see the game still running. However, he can’t access any menus or messaging services. Additionally, all his NPC seem incredibly life-like. And with a bolt of realization, Momonga sees he has become his character from Yggdrasil.
Determined to discover other players who might also be trapped in this new world, Momonga seeks to spread his name far and wide. Thus, he takes a title no seasoned Yggdrasil can mistake. On this day, Momonga becomes the all-powerful overlord, Ainz Ooal Gown.
