    I think that the MC is just a reader, and the author is probably the secretive plotter (I think that's his modifier) since even the MC hasn't heard of him in the novel. I also think that the MC will reject the offer of being a constellation just like rejected the absolute throne and destroyed it, maybe because it will change the flow of events if he rejects becoming one.

    Actually, the author gives an explanation for this later. It seems like there are an overwhelming about of evil Japanese people because the Japanese entered the scenario first. Of the Japanese that entered the scenario, all of the people that were kind and merciful all had to die or hide because surviving the scenario is immensely harder when you are playing as a pacifist (you become very weak when you don't kill the small people). So it seems like the Japanese are evil because all the good guys have already died or hidden away. It's not like all the Japanese are saints or devils, they all have varying levels of morality.

    In fact, throughout the whole novel, most of the characters seem selfish and evil because all of the good guys were the first to die. If you remember, the first scenario was to 'kill something', so most of the people that weren't able to kill have already died and only those that are able to kill remain.

    As for why the author refers to them as 'Japanese', well that's probably because it makes explaining the situation much easier. Afterall, just referring to them as 'people' would be confusing.

    I do agree that the author does have some level of bias, but I don't think he was intentionally trying to downplay the Japanese. I have to say, I also felt that the author was depicting that Japanese in a bad light at first, but after the explanation, I felt it made sense.

    There are 2 possible explanations:
    1) Split personality (not uncommon after trauma)
    2) The setting was created to fill in the void, kind of like ways of survival settings were created to fill in a void the novel didn't cover.

    So you are saying secret plotter's reactions were faked when things were being censored or when MC used his knowledge?

    We already reached that part. Ren (or whatever her name is) explained that all good Japs became small people and are either hiding or dead because the freakin' King is a power-hungry dictator.

    3) Future version doing the usual paradox stuff. Ehehehe

    Guys Can someone please answer my question? about on QI Spirit Stone issue...
    Is it just me or are you guys are having the same weird situation like mine about why my free daily Spirit Stones are Draining like crazy!!!
    Seriously I've been patiently saving up some Spirit Stone on my 2accounts on QI without reading any novels out there just to specially reserved it on novels like the first hunter or taming master and do some binge reading later but suddenly weird things are happening lately,
    At first I thought I'm just too tired reading too much MTL novel nowadays but later I found out that some of my Spirit Stone are really did missing without reading anything, why the heck am suffering an injustice like this...
    Got Any solution on how to stop or evade this missing Spirit Stone issue on QI?

    I wonder if this means that she'll be reborn as a dokaebi, and what good he expects that to do him.

    Free spirit stones have an expiration date. You can click on spirit stones and it'll show you when next one expires. There is also a transaction log.

    Are you talking about people from South Vietnam, or North Vietnam, or like the friend I know, refugees who escapes from Vietnam after the war and settled in England?
    Japan also occupied Taiwan for 50 years, same as Korea. Japan obtained Taiwan and Korea in the same war after all. The native people in Taiwan actually preferred Japanese rule since they were treated worse after they reverted back to chinese rule. So nationalism is a very touchy topic, as you have to ask, which nation exactly.

    Bonus spirit stones disappear if you don’t use them in a certain amount of days. You probably won some in the Christmas gacha. Those are probably what disappeared.

    Anyone have any guesses on who the sponsor is for the leader of the Church of Salvation? Maybe a Hindu nebula since they ride elephant monsters?

    If they ride an elephant monster then it should be the god of thunder... Indra. He’s one of the weakest gods though.. even though he’s the king of gods, the trinity gods barely acknowledge him XD

    Agreed. Very touchy, and very very personal. :blobsad:

    Last night I watched something about the Finnish Winter War and the Continuation War...did not know that the Finns, pissed at Russia for invading them, allied with the Nazis to regain their lost territory...:blobhero:

    I thought it would be related to Christianity since Uriel stopped following Dokja coincidentally before this appears. Also, Church of Salvation just sounds Christianity to me.

    I don’t know. I just don’t see a Christian religion riding elephants through Seoul. I think they would walk with large numbers. Unless they’re like crusaders and just used the first monster available instead of mutant horses. I still think it’s a Hindu religion because of the elephants. Oh well. I’ll find out tomorrow.
    Edit: The only other thing it could be is Buddhism. I guess Budda rode an elephant and Buddhism is one of the main religions in South Korea.

    First it was the prophets questioning his looks, then Han Sooyoung scoffed at him and now he gets dissed on. Poor Dokja, the insults on his appearance gets worse over time (would be funny if his modifier is The Ugly One)

    The main culprit is another regressor. Heh.

    It's Roman Catholic, not Christianity. Salvation is just a part of Christianity, while Roman Catholic acts like it is the everything.

    edit: Did some searching to double check what I said, and it seems I was right that what is happening locally is opposite of what seems to be happening in general. XD
