Vol 50-55 is about right to end the Novel
After becoming Master sculptor there is not much left to do.
and all that is left is Weed vs Bardray ,North vs Hermes to conquer the continent.
I agree about the fact that the author said it would end there. But to say that there is not much left to do, i disagree.
There is to take over the rest of the continent to become the true emperor.
How do you want to implement the spirit of the North on the Continent ?
Having become master class does NOT mean that ur gaming has ended or that u are the end of ur character evolution. For example, Weed, during the warring age, did become a master class and an Emperor toward level 700+ and he is still was very weak compared to the dragon (who himself was already largely weakened by Embinyu).
Same comment with the Embinyu avatar.
There is a second continent on the map.
The map is to be found on the author's blog.http://blog.naver.com/wargod80/150172610042
There is a clue with the wasteland of the lost, which is only a border between both Continent (volume 38 chapter1). Again, you can read the clues around the story of Hestiger.http://the-legendary-moonlight-sculptor.wikia.com/wiki/Forbidden_Zones#Wasteland_of_the_Lost.
To go even further, the author could consider the option of
- starting a dual class character, with a new class (a classic of traditional RPG).
- a special event challenging the Emperor and the central continent (another classic of online gaming or story telling).
- a new addition, with a simple forced quest on a gamer or a gate opening that would throw Weed in a new world/other dimension (future or foreign world).
Like he already did with the past dimension. The author did it before with the vampire subworld or with another dimension ( Dawn traveler ) http://the-legendary-moonlight-sculptor.wikia.com/wiki/Dawn_traveler
. This could happen again with the downfall of the wasteland of the lost (a barrier) or a gate opening toward a second world. In short, unifying the Continent, could be only a trigger point for something else, or something bigger, with the Emperor having to protect his world
So, in the end, i guess that it is all about the author motivation to dream about a world and tell us an interesting story, while being at it.
