Mass for the Dead Walkthrough and Guide
Mass for the Dead is a hero-collecting RPG based on Kugane Maruyama's Overlord light novel and anime series. You take on the role of Momonga, a hardcore player of the online game 'Yggdrasil'. The game is shutting down, but he decides to stay on till the very last moment, until he discovers he’s unable to log out. Now trapped in the defunct MMORPG, he takes on a new name in Ainz Ooal Gowns, a skeletal mage, and will now help his guild survive in this dark fantasy world. During the game itself you will need to assemble a team of four characters to battle their way through the story mode.
