* JackOfAllTrades: Unlike most (if not all) players that specialize in one field of expertise and try to master it to perfection, Weed has become proficient in numerous professions through sheer grinding that defies common sense. Whether it be cooking, tailoring, blacksmithing, sculpting, or fishing; he's close to mastering them all and has also gained numerous benefits from expanding his repertoire (such as the blacksmith passive that lets him wear top gear armor at a lower level).

Lee Hyun is now old enough to work... legally that is. Since his parents died, Lee Hyun has taken on all sorts of jobs as a child worker because he needed the money for his grandmother and sister, but now he is old enough to work legally. Just before he goes to bed to sweet dreams of working three part-time jobs a day, he decides to auction off his Continent of Magic (an old but dominant MMO) character at the starting bid of $50. Maybe it'll sell for enough to buy a suit for interviews.

Online, some people find his auction of a maxed out legendary character from Continent of Magic. At first they cry fake, but as more and more people look at it, the steady realization comes that it's real. Since Hyun only gave 24 hours for the auction, people begin a frenzy of bidding. The price quickly climbs to $100,000 when TV stations notice the auction. At this point, TV stations bid for a publicity boost. The next day Hyun receives a call saying that his avatar has been sold for $3.09 million dollars. Hyun, bitter at the practical joke, nonetheless checks his bank account... and lo and behold, he has $3.09 million dollars! However, before he can celebrate, loan sharks appear and take the money. Turns out his parents owed them some money and 8 years of interest really builds up. Devastated but also enlightened, Hyun figures that what was done once can be done again.

One year later, he logs in to the famous Virtual Reality MMO Royal Road under the name Weed, and in due time is offered the class of 'Moonlight Sculptor', which he [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway summarily rejects]]. Intent on getting the best class possible, he completes a long, painful quest for a sage and attains an amazing new class... the [[PowerupLetdown ''Legendary'' Moonlight Sculptor]].

Thus begins the adventures of Weed.
