The Garden of the Gods is a major attraction and a Holy Site on the Northern Continent. It was built to celebrate the founding of the Arpen Kingdom in the north. The Gods and Goddesses portrayed in the Garden were rediscovered by Weed in Ratzeberg. A lot of people had believed in those gods until they had been forgotten. The garden is free to enter and there are temples built to honor each god.

Location Edit

The Garden of the Gods location was a wide wasteland where not even a single blade of grass grew. The distance was so great that the walls and buildings of Morata could not be seen[1].

Description Edit

The Elves planted wildflowers and flowers that represented each god. There exists a temple to each along with images portraying them. The marble temples also give off a luxurious atmosphere and there is a square and a lake inside of the Garden.

A performance venue was also placed on one side. It would be difficult to make a disturbance in a place with sculptures of gods but the performances told legends and stories associated with the gods. Once songs of praise were sung, the Garden of the Gods became even more famous.

The Garden has 2 Magnum Opus, 3 Masterpieces, 7 Fine pieces, and numerous Historic, Religious and Giant sculptures.

Storyline Edit

Approximately 100,000 users followed Weed, picked up materials and went to the site of the Garden of the Gods. It's a wasteland quite a distant away from Morata. They brought stones from the mountains to the work site. He set a working area where 32 sculptures will be placed, it was such a massive project that he decided to recruit disciples.

Weed wants a disciple. Hello!
Sculptor Weed is working with a friendly atmosphere in the wasteland. He is looking for disciples to trim the sculptors together.
Every day 21 hours will be spent creating the sculptor and 3 hours running errands.
Anyone can apply.
4 copper per hour.
However, the probationary period is 3 days and only half of the salary will be paid.
If you receive an injury while making the sculpture then it will be bandaged.
No days off.
No additional pay will be given for working at night.
Hospitality : Grass porridge will be provided as a meal 3 times a day and you can lay down anywhere in the workshop to sleep.
There will be rabbit soup twice a month for dinner. However, you need to catch the rabbit directly.
Always recruiting.
People with experience in sculpting preferred. It doesn't matter if you are novices. People with sincerity rather than talent will be preferred.

The worst working conditions but the lure of working on such project and with a sculptor such as Weed there was no shortage of people. From beginners to senior magicians, the applicants gathered like a moth to flames. He gathered 700 disciples in a short time.
A famous sculptor name Depth/Depp who has Intermediate Sculpting was also there helping Weed.
Stones were dug from nearby quarry and marbles were bought from another village in the north so it consumed Arpen Kingdom's budget. The funds investment were enough for 3 Grand Buildings.

The first statue, Goddess Hestia was made from marbles.
As soon as the first statue was finished, the number of users participated increased drastically, it was reaching 300,000 after one day. The people who participated in the making of Goddess Hestia received more specific blessings; they gained slightly more Faith, Strength, and Perseverance, including the contribution to Arpen Kingdom.

Aside from sculptures, a temple was built with flowers and trees being planted. In order for them to grow in a barren wasteland,a water channel was connected to a nearby river.[2] The place was already an important place for priests and paladins. Priests from center, eastern, western, and southern part of the continent formed expeditions and pilgrimages  to Morata.

Weed was making the sculptures of the gods based on what he saw in Ratzeburg. In the case of forgotten gods, a new religion would be born when the statue was completed.
When the fourth sculptures completed, hundred of thousands of users were helping every day. By the time 6 sculptures were completed, all materials have been gathered on the site.
When Weed finished 10 sculptures, the roads leading to Morata were opened.
Everytime Weed completed a sculpture, a quest regarding that god would be given. He spent 3 months on the Versailles Continent making the sculptures.

When considering the religious and historical value, right now was the best time to make the Garden of the Gods. Ratzerburg was an important place where the gods first entered the world. He wanted to complete this architecture before other sculptors or artists found Ratzeburg and informed the world about that historical place.

After finishing his 19th sculpture, he finally gained Advance Level 9 in Sculpting.[3] He worked together with Herman on a statue of God Batalli and managed to make a Magnum Opus.[4] The Magnum Opus sculpture increased his contribution to each religious order and gave blessings to soldiers fighting against monsters in the region. By the time Weed was carving the last statue, the road was full of exhausted users; they carried stones and dirt, made water channel, laid down roads, and planted trees in the garden.

Morata was overflowing with tourists coming to see the garden. Users timed their hunting time so that they could return to watch the completion of the garden. Wild flowers and seeds obtained from Prina were planted by Weed. He delayed the completion of the last sculpture for the next day and it gave the users enough time to prepare. He left the Statue of Freya for last[5].
