Overlord: Storyline

Overlord plot

The last Momonga, a powerful wizard and master of the dark guild Ainz Ooal Gown, decides to spend his last moments in the game before the servers are shut down. To his surprise, although the clock has already struck midnight, Momonga is still fully conscious and even the non-player characters seem to have developed their own personalities!

Confronted with this abnormal situation, Momonga orders his loyal servants to help him explore this new world and take control, hoping to find out what has caused this evolution and if there may be others in the same situation.

Overlord Season 4 Expected Plot

Now, seeing how the first three seasons adapted three volumes of the light novel series each, we assume that season four is going to function in the same way.

Now, if we’re judging by the previous seasons, season four should be adapting volumes ten, eleven and twelve of the light novel series, effectively concluding with the first part of “The Paladin of the Holy Kingdom” arc. But! Seeing how the production was delayed due to the pandemic and how volumes 12 and 13 form one narrative arc (but are split into two parts), there is a possibility that season four – when it comes out – might adapt parts of “The Ruler of Conspiracy,” “The Craftsman of Dwarf,” “The Paladin of the Holy Kingdom” are the given titles, respectively.

Next, moving on to volume eleven, shows Ainz searching for the lost run magic while moving towards the Dwarf Kingdom and is being accompanied by Shalltear Bloodfallen and Aura Bella Fiora. Later, when they reach the Dwarf kingdom, they find that it is under attack by Quagoa. Facing all the threats, the Dwarf Runesmiths agrees to help Ainz with the mission of searching for lost rune magic. Lastly, the 3rd volume features the attack of the Demon Emperor.
