Overlord Season 4 Plot
In the first episode of the series, we see a boy named Momonga who is ushered into the world of a video game titled Runescape, an MMORPG.
On the other hand, Momonga is a good gamer, and Ainz is a strong character in the game world of YGGDRASIL, where the game is set. He later begins to look around the world for the first time as a magical necromancer and not as a person who is playing a video game.
In the finale episode of the third season, we have seen that Ainz gets ready to rule his kingdom, which is named the Sorcerer Kingdom.
At a certain point, Ainz’s trials and troubles as the ruler of his kingdom begin to take centre stage in the Overlord light novels, which is why the tenth volume of the light novel series should be taken into as the source material to formulate and for the beginning of the fourth season.
Volume 10 also features the rulers of opposing nations with whom Ainz now has to compete or make peace, as he has been involved in fantasy politics.
