Buildings arose in the vacant lot near Morata Central Square.
Weapon Shop, Armor Shop, Tourist Shop, Adventurer Shop, Cartography Group, Fruit Store, and Grocery Store.

Because of this development, Morata turned into a frontier city in the North. Newbies players start showing up in Morata. It's the only city in the North where new players can start their new character and choose Morata as their starting city.
There is a booming emergence of new players choosing Morata as their starting city. Morata has a lot of things that are advantageous even for old players; sculptures boosts, blessings from the Church, low taxes, lots of hunting grounds, non-monopolized hunting ground, and many others.
Many players whose class could impact the culture and development of the city flock to Morata. Sculptors, Artists/Painters, Merchants, Architects, and other production classes aside from offensive classes are coming and staying in Morata to enjoy the benefits. One of them is Spenson/Spencer, a very distinguished Adventurer in Royal Road. He donated an item he excavated after coming to the North. Now, it's displayed in Morata.

The cost to build it is 100,000 gold.
Since Morata is in the cold north, he built Ice Wizard Tower.
Putting this eye-catching building has to be perfect to emphasize the city's beauty. Since Morata center square is already over crowded, he decided to build it near Statue of Freya.
An inverted icicle towering 20 meters was constructed.
With this tower, now players can choose Mage as a starting profession in Morata.
- Elemental Houses
Elemental Shaman is a very popular class for people who weren't familiar with the game. Because of this, he constructed Elemental House.
From the construction window, he can choose a spirit from a dozen of popular spirits.
Depending on the nature of the spirit,the construction costs are at least 20,000 gold. What would you like to spend on the budget?
Spending the bare minimum cost, he built :

The Squares being named as Wyvern Square, Bingryong Square, Light Tower Square, and Rover Square. The Statue of Freya is a center point of the squares with the connecting roads to all of the squares. Looking at the area from bird eye view, the squares look a like a diamond shape with the Statue of Freya as a vocal point.

Second Military Force Edit
The looming danger of invasion from the Northern Alliance; Weed built another military orientated building with 260,000 gold left on the budget.
- Military Camp
He spent 70,000 gold to build a professional military camp on the outskirt of town. It's a camp that's made to train infantry, archers, and spearmen. The soldiers could increase their levels training here.
There is also a center to train horses and cavalry, however, the cost is 200,000 gold. He didn't have enough gold to build this center.
- Drafting Soldiers
Weed conscripted a total of 8,000 soldiers. Forced conscription of soldiers raised dissatisfaction among the young people. It also lowered the morale of the soldiers that are drafted.
10 gold was consumed per drafted unit, there was also a monthly salary of 3 gold. It takes a lot of money to upkeep military forces. 3 gold salary for a soldier, a wizard's salary at least 600 gold, to arm four horsemen cost 3,000 gold. Intermediate level cavalry cost 10,00 gold a piece.
The military camp cost 70,000 gold while the drafting cost a total 80,000 gold. He had to give money to the household from the drafted soldiers, it cost him 100 gold per household. If he did't do this the complaint will rise from the residents.

Adding the first military force, Morata has a total of 11,867 soldiers. Right at this moment, the protection from the Church of Freya will end in 36 days. Aside from Morata's military force, Weed also made use of Mapan and Lemon to help him build a users orientated military force. The birth of Grass Porridge Guild.
First Invasion Edit
Weed had done all he could to prepare the incoming war between Morata and the Northern Alliance. The Alliance has more than 128,000 units; off this number more than 90,000 are NPCs and users part of the alliance have levels ranging 250-300.
There was a massive beginners recruitment spreading on Versailles Continent. Beginners would have their leather armor repaired for free and a free packaged food. They spent 4 weeks beating up scarecrows.
When the Grass Porridge Guild first introduced, its members is staggering 320,000, but by the time the war started, the total is 1,200,000 members.
Do not let the front line break! Support as much as possible. Shoot to kill! Do not hesitate to die because the 1.2 million other Grass Porridge Guild members will avenge you. (Mapan's quote)

He also increased taxes rate for 2 days.
For two days, a temporary tax is applied. Items has been changed to rate from 5% to 7% in the stores.
Morata Art Center Edit
It is unclear as to how they decided to build an Art Center to display Weed's sculptures collection, but it's finally finished. The 5 story building has 2 underground floors and a large garden. From B2 to a second floor are reserved for other artists exhibitions. Well known painters and sculptors now have a place to display their works. The completion of this art center caused Morata's fame to shot up by 60. The third floor is full of Weed's sculptures. On the fourth floor, a third of the area is covered by glass. Inside the glass viewing, you can see the Sculpture of From Birth to Death.
During the placing of the plaque Morata Art Center, Pavo lamented that it's been 2 years since he arrived in Morata.
|Morata's cultural development has increased.|
Artistic development has increased by 3%.
|The art and wisdom of the people of Morata have increased.|
The probability of more artists and wizards being born is high.
The first guests of this art center were Mandol and his wife, Delphi. They are the first to see the sculpture of their daughter. In their house in Kingdom Selzium, there was a message asking them to come to Morata to view the sculpture Mandol commissioned. The one who meet the couple and guided them to the art center is the little girl who gave Weed the flower planting quest.
After Mandol first viewing, the Art Center is opened to public. The admission fee is 10 gold. For level lower than 100 is 3 gold. Prices even applied to mercenaries and subordinate NPCs. For group 30 or more they will have 50% discount.
The number of visitors is growing exponentially. It exceeds 25,000 visitors a day. For the first time in the history of Versailles Continent, there is a revenue building based on art.

Domestic Affair Mode
|Military 91||Economic Power 1,737|
|Culture 2,384||Technology 592|
|Urban Development 171||Hygiene 37|
|Public Security 52%|
Domestic Affair Mode is designed to handle small scale things within a city if residents needed infrastructures or goods; such as pubs or cows, the lord can build them and even establish necessary guilds.
The development of the village needs to be watched over by the lord in the early stages. Now that Morata has become a big city, architects are designing and building places that lords would have otherwise built themselves.
- City's Beauty
He decided to plant more trees on the side of the road and it serves another purpose too beside city's beautification, it'll help his Nature Sculpting Skill. He spent 1,298 gold on it. He used cheap seeds and only the ones that bear fruits. Apple trees, pear trees, grape vines, and peach trees. The seeds were blessed by the Church of Freya so it will grow faster.
Weed went to Light Square and secured an area of 20 meters to do nature sculpting. He created flowers and grasses from dirt. The sculpture is a compilation of all the flowers he saw during his travel in the Versailles Continent, he added butterflies, bees, and birds. By now, he only has 1 day left before Bar Khan summoning.
The effect of the sculpture triggered a festival.
Wildflower Festival has started.
Wildflowers signaled that spring is here, for friend of foe,
The fields and hills of the Northern Versailles Continent are filled with blooming flowers, even near the river. Residents in love choose this spot to confess.
During the festival, the resident's happiness is increased.
Increase in Vitality restoration.
Increase of Fame in the area of Morata.
Increase visitors to promote the development of the tourism industry.
Honey production is increased by 800%.
It is a time where either friend or foe happily spend time in one place with their peers.
- Security Post
Weed made plenty of security posts around the plaza and the shantytowns. A city has to watch their public security, guard posts can patrol to catch thieves that steal merchant's items. If security deteriorated, traders would avoid the city.
Another thing he has to worry about is that Morata once again facing invasion. Because of Bar Khan Undead Legion and their long-standing animosity against Weed, Morata is facing invasions of the undead army heading to the city. Vargo Fortress isn't that far away from Morata.
- Soup Kitchen
The Soup Kitchen presence alone increases a lot of the loyalty of the people. Weed wants to have at least a minimal welfare system in Morata.
- City's Related Resident Requests
Residents are coming to Weed to have an audience and request his help on certain things that could further develop or enhance Morata.
I am trying to turn a barren land fertile but I am in need some money. Would you be able to invest in me? The resident even proceeded with the quest where the crop can be shared with the Lord.
Weed gave the resident the money and on harvest time, he could see the crops result.
I feel uneasy during the night because of no security. Would you be able to invest in a little bit of security?
We can catch the thieves at night and I will increase the number of soldiers. Weed stationed lookouts and guards around buildings, this is also part of the quest.
Grand Building Edit
Now that Morata has a high cultural impact, Weed can start building Grand Building. However, the cost to build one is quite high and need a major amount of works which means it takes times to build one. It's a city effort to build one. Residents and users have to participate to have a successful attempt to build a Grand Building.
It didn't matter if the lord decided to build Grand Building if residents and users didn't go through with the plan, the architecture will take a long time to build or even not being built at all. There is no trust between residents and users in the Central Continent because the lords only build things that are beneficial to them and for their own image.
He built it on a vacant lot near Light Square and Bingryong Square.
- Freya's Cathedral
- Once it's finished, the Church of Freya's Paladins and Priests could formally take the 2nd tier job advancement. They won't need to travel to Central Continent to do that.
- The Cathedral also has an added effect; enhancing the abilities of the Paladins and Priests classes.
- The Church of Freya can use the Cathedral to keep cherished and sacred holy items.
- Farmers can pray for blessing the surrounding area to ensure good crops and better harvests. It also could be a powerful deterrent for monsters invasions by using the stationed paladins of the Church.
- The Freya's Cathedral in the Central Continent empowered the residents faith and prosperity.
|Northern Church of Freya's Cathedral|
|If the Cathedral was successfully built, the former ministry over the Goddess of Freya followers would greatly increase.|
|Building cost : at least 900,000 gold.|
Construction period : at least 5 months.
|Depending on the personnel, if there is an accident occurred during the construction, it will increase the construction's building period. Skilled builders are needed. Architects who participate in making it will be able to gain special experiences. A large number of artists and sculptors needs to be mobilized. Participants who work with arts will be able to have an increase in opportunities for their names to be known.|
|Great Architecture, would you like to begin commencement of Freya's Cathedral?|
- Grand Library
- The development of knowledge is quintessential for any city, it could even help the development of magic related classes.
- when there's a quest, people could check a library for any map, information, or clues regarding the quests.
- These clues, map, information; while the true values (for quests) are quite precious but people could buy them cheaply in the general stores. Donating these valuable items to the library will increase the library repertoire.
- As people got a lead on their quests, the experience gained is shared equally with the original donator of the books/items from the library.
- Because of this perk, it will make people eager to input their knowledge on quests, hunts, monsters, maps, etc in the library which could lead to a great boom in hunting and adventures.
- Building a Grand Library would unlock various quests on finding artifacts.
|It will promote the development of learning and adventuring.|
There is a possibility of restoring lost magic spells.

After Weed finished his quest in Serabourg Citadel, he went back to Morata to give the Sword of Lugh back to the Church of Lugh.
The Church of Lugh was comparatively new in Morata but it's slowly growing. He reported his find of Las Phalanx/Jigolath and told stories of his adventures to the area. He did this in the Church of Lugh instead of other places so the church would grow faster by giving out quests related to Las Phalanx/Jigolath. He also gained fame and contribution points because of it.
The Bishop stated that there was a new dungeon appeared near Morata and planned to dispatch the paladins to wipe out most of the dangerous monsters. However, he asked for cooperations of Morata's soldiers.

Quest Related's City Development Edit
Users can find quest given by resident that has an effect in the city. It is unknown how many of these quests have been given to the users, however Pale and the gang took this quest from the weapon shop owner. Weed also had these quests as a form of residents requesting an audience to their lord and ask for his help.

It is known that at the time Pale accepted the quest, the weapon and armor shop along with the smithy don't have many businesses from the income history. That's why the weapon shop owner gave out a quest that could impact the improvement of this sector.
Domain Expansion Edit
Vargo Fortress Edit
When Weed rejected the call to arms by Bar Khan, Morata was faced with the invasion of undead army as a result and him being summoned to Vargo Fortress as an undead foot soldier, along with other Necromancer users. Being undead, he and the other users had to heed the Bar Khan summoning call by forced.
Vargo Fortress is now the place where the Undead Legion stationed, and Weed had to do series of quests for the undead, rising in their rank. While Weed was over Vargo Fortress, Morata's people were arming up facing the undead army. Quests for fighting the undead start to show in Morata. There were 4 undead armies marching to Morata with a total of 120,000 undead. They faced the first undead advance successfully, along with the second advancement.
While doing the undead quests, he had to face Hermes Guild, Polon and their group too. Weed and friends finally started to fight Bar Khan, they have to fight 3 Bone Dragons while trying to find Bar Khan's life vessel so they could beat him. When Weed and friends finally beat Bar Khan, a message window pop for Weed :
|You have conquered Vargo Fortress occupied by the Undead.|
Morata's domain has expanded.
The Birth of Arpen Kingdom Edit
After Weed sold his ceramics, the elder who became the Earl of Morata approached him with a speech.
This land has been welcomed by good development with the indomitable leadership of its Lord. The people who lived here were also hardworking and loyal. After the fall of Niflheim Empire, the people who were suffering from the monsters and cold still enjoyed an abundant and safe living, and all this thanks to the Lord.
As long as it is with their Lord, even if it is a monster lair, they will follow you without hesitation. I say this on behalf of the residents. To ensure that the development and glory of Morata will continue, I am making an earnest request as Earl for the army to go to the higher place and touch the entirety of the North.
|The Small Kingdom that Began in the Land of the North.
The population and economic power of Morata had already succeeded that of a size of a city.
|You have accepted the King's seat.
All your rights are born after your coronation.
|You have chosen Arpen as the name of your Kingdom.
The activities of your kingdom officially begin after the coronation took place.
|You have chosen 30 gold for the cost of your coronation.|
Users who didn't know the day of Weed's coronation would know about it from the residents who spread the words about the event. The Morata users wanted to attend the coronation but such a low budget coronation made it hard for them to find out since there were no extravagant decorations that usually came along with such an important event. By the time the sun had risen halfway up, the soldiers and knights were arranged in the Central Square. That's the only indication for the users to go to the Central Square for the event.
There was a wooden table with a thin gold crown and a glass of water on it. He came escorted by the knights wearing the newly made Goddess Knight Armor with a spectacular cloak.
Alveron was leading the ceremony as a representative of the religions. Now, he was in charge of the Cathedral and missionary activities in the north. It was mentioned that his level at that moment was level 553. When the ceremony started, Alveron began his speech;
"The Church of Freya, the Church of Lugh, and the four other religious orders of the Versailles Continent has blessed the rise of Weed's Arpen Kingdom."
|You have received the recognition of the religious orders.|
|Faith has increased by 25.|
Honour has increased by 17.
|You have received recognition as King from the Gods.|
There will be high levels of religious activities in your Kingdom.
Alveron placed the gold crown on Weed's head and announced the first speech of Weed as King of Arpen Kingdom. After the speech, a message window appeared before all users in the Versailles Continent.
|The Arpen Kingdom has been established.|
|King of Weed has created a small kingdom including Morata and Vargo Fortress.|
It is the center of trade in the north and is leading in arts and cultures. It is a kingdom where significants amount of weapons and quality fabric is created and possessed a various type of local specialties.
|The fame of Morata and Vargo Fortress has increased.|
You will have a large political influence over any areas in the vicinity that doesn't belong to the kingdom yet.
|A small riot is taking place in Vent Castle.|
For his eyes only, a message window showed up.
|The King has the authority to make any demand of the residents.
The residents won't be able to refuse the King's orders if they don't want to die.
|You can appoint the nobility. The nobles are subject to the taxes and benefits of their territory.|
Royal Knights can be installed.
|You can select a state religion. Many residents believe in the Goddess of Freya. When a state religion is established, any missionary work related to that religion will become smooth thanks to the Goddess of Luck.|
But the will be a strong opposition from other religions.
|The construction of the palace is necessary for many internal affrairs and governing.|
A King was able to exercise a strong power of authority. Fame, Dignity, and Charm were the best when dealing with residents. Any quest could be given or forcefully taken away properties.
He had made Morata as the Capital of Arpen Kingdom.
To commemorate the birth of his kingdom, he managed to move residents and users alike to help him build a colossal construction that will have a major impact on the newly found kingdom, Garden of the Gods.
