Maybe 9 years is too soon for a VR headset but maybe 30-50 years from now isn't too far fetched.
9 maybe too early but i don't think it will take 30-50 either.

Chapter 60 puts a frightening twist into the concept of death in Theldessia.
It's like in Shakugan no Shana: losing your very existence is a worse fate than death itself.

I think it's more like the reverse of what happens in SnS. A person losing his Power of Existence is forgotten by others, while death in Theldessia causes one to forget his original identity.

In the very worst case, death in Theldesia might even be a combination of both. Let us assume for a moment, in order to consider this scenario, that the person exists on both planes at the same time. In other words, he is both an Average Joe in this world and, at the same time, an Adventurer trapped in Theldesia. Whenever his Adventurer self dies, a bit of his Existence here is extinguished as well.

So, in this scenario, mostly likely not the case but whatever, a suicidal Adventurer is essentially acting as his own Guze no Tomogara...

Their parents ...? Oh, and there was a promotion for the release of Homesteading the Noosphere where people could play for free for a week. That's what happened to Isuzu.

We might have them in 50 years, or we might not.

50 years ago they thought we'd have flying cars by now.
But they could not even imagine current smartphones.

50 years is past the event horizon for technological advancement.

@Death in Theldesia

My take is that the Adventurer's identity, as in the self native in the world, quicken the shift of identity with each death. What eventually may happen is that the Adventurers who dies too much become People of the Land.

I don't think that they'll become a Lander, because what would they be, then? An Ancient? They're far too powerful to be a Lander, and would they suddenly become mortal after dying too many times? Are Ancients really just "players" of other parallel universes who died so much that they turned into NPC Ancients?

I theorized that perhaps, after dying too much, people will no longer be able to return to the real world, for the same line of thinking that I and Estavali mentioned earlier; each death not only removes your memory of the old world, but also erases your presence in the old world.

If the regular 3-5 day schedule frame continues, chapter 61 should be out tomorrow (at least, for me).

I attempted to translate the latter half of that chapter out of curiosity. As expected, I didn't get very far.

Because he translated from volumes, and then he didn't

Mamare writes what are essentially rough drafts on the web and has them accessible to everybody. It then gets turned into a published light novel complete with illustrations after some editing.

skythewood translates from Chinese, and the volumes are only up to volume 6 (out of a published 7). So, during the wait for volume 7's Chinese release (rumors say July 25), he's translating from another fan translation of the web novels.

No, it's official. It's just not the copy that you buy, and it's pretty much rough drafts. Very little seems to be changed between versions, though.

And also, the TW version mentioned correcting some errors from the Japanese print ... is one of those things William's level? He got lowered a whole 2 levels between the web character page and the published one.

regarding death,

When adventurer died too much, their existence will become somewhat like Ro2, perhaps ?

I think they became adventurer but without knowledge of the previous world. You turn into another person just like Angel Beats NPC, since what makes adventurer unique is that they have memories from old world.

Dont know about Roe2. Probably when Shiroe transported Roe2 also transported to that world and we have no knowledge the last time Shiroe log as Roe2. She probably other entity using Roe2 avatar or younger Shiroe who went crazy because wrong gender avatar or die countless time because wakeup in the middle of no where?

just had a thought.

unless Shiroe was playing on both accts at the same time. roe2's acct should have been off. The fact that she is active right now could mean other non-active accts could become active. So we might just see all members of Tea Party.
