Overlord: Light Novel 02 The Dark Warrior
For twelve years, the virtual world of Yggdrasil has served as the playground and battlefield for the skeletal lord Momonga and his guild of fellow monsters, Ainz Ooal Gown. But the guild's glory days are over and the game is shutting down permanently. When Momonga logs in one last time just to be there when the servers go dark, something happens-and suddenly, fantasy is reality.
It has been a week since Momonga logged in to his favourite RPG one last time and stranded himself there. Now he leads his guild as the Ainz Ooal Gown overlord. Finding himself in dire need of better information, he travels disguised as an adventurer to the walled city of E-Rantel, with Narberal the battle maid at his side.
The pair accept a mission to retrieve medicinal herbs, making for a forest said to be the home of a great and wise beast but the sinister influence of a fanatical cabal approaches E-Rantel, and the armour-clad Ainz will face both a ruthless warrior and a legion of the undead!
