    Summary
    Once... Humans and Orcs peacefully co-existed, but at some point humans got greedy and started a war claiming the Orcs' territory. The diety-Lord who created all, got angry with the humans' greed and decided to punish them with 3 catastrophes. One of them was the "Dragons", divine creatures blessed with magic capable of doing almost anything. Now the Orcs, with a "Dragon" by their side, seem to have the upper hand. Will humans just sit back and see their land get destroyed? They are too devious for that... Their only good plan at that point is to abduct a "Dragon" to even things up. But how are they going to manage the capture of a being with so much power? [EG Scans]

    I would give it a solid 9. I would rate higher if there were more chapters. The series, characters, story line are really well done and have not bored me at all. I tend to like these fantasy type story's with fights and strange powers. The plot and story thus far has has been rather good.

    this part seems to be a spoiler
    i caught up but this plan didnt catch my eyes yet
    its a good manhwa so far tho its too early to comment but the settings are like ID isnt it?

    ---------- Post added at 01:09 PM ---------- Previous post was at 12:59 PM ----------

    nd i think its the Dragons that are in fault in the first place. When the war ensued between human and orcs Y didnt the dragon stop them? they let it happed till orcs contracts has been taken from them. are the treaty as such worthy only of a contract or are the people which whome they have the treaty with is important.
    i fail to see how come an absense of a contract shifts the grace away ?
    if they stepped in to stop the human invasion things would have stopped though humans would have experience many casuality but not a threat of annihilation.

    as for lord Crossen i think its Homyung. Remember the dive he dived to get Solo?he did touch the teleportation field
    but he wasnt withing fully and they did say that such teleportations are tricky so its highly possible along with traveling in different dimention he also traveled in time and went to the past.
    what do you think unc charlie?

    Yes, the setting has a lot of similarities to ID. About the dragons, yes they seem to be the one pulling the strings currently.

    Re: Dark Mage by KIM Jung Ryul

    hmm i ve read up till chap 19 where he kills 2-3 trolls without using ki or gauntlet blades (dun know what is the name of the weapon he generally uses). but the guy who was testing him wasnt impressed because he didnt do anything flamboyant nd he dosent have Ki.
    the mage managed to placate the higher up tho

    ---------- Post added December 21, 2011 at 10:55 PM ---------- Previous post was December 20, 2011 at 09:48 AM ----------

    things are turning interesting they plan on making him fight a twin headed Ogre while he barely managed to defeat a troll ogre is supposed to be stronger. i like the bad ass character of the hero, may be thats y i am liking it more than ID.
    nd there is ample fights and story progression unlike breaker, only prob is this kind of stories are too polarized. While they are good reads they still cant super hype ppl up like breaker or Nobless or TOG.
    But Dark mage's awesome in its own genre thats for sure

    Looks like I was right. The main character is going to end up learning magic to make up for his handicap. Making him the titular dark mage.

    I'm really enjoying this series greatly. I guess I really like the fantasy aspect of genres like this. ^^
    Dokgo is pretty bad ass too. I wonder if at some point he will have that seal from the monk that was placed on him removed.

    Re: Dark Mage by KIM Jung Ryul

    i am interested to see how he ll get out of this mess. i am sure the young mage will be the magical art trainer of our main.
    the Ogre is a tough opponent to face esp without Ki
    wonder how Solo will defeat this beast.
    @Bludvein i agree with ya.Guess the Title of Dark mage will be proven through his later learning of Magic nd his new found powers

    Re: Dark Mage by KIM Jung Ryul

    so why is the protagonist a hunchback? is it because of the old man's seal? or he was born like that ?
