Treasury refers to the treasure vault of the Great Tomb of Nazarick.

Background[]

During Ainz Ooal Gown's golden years as a PK guild and at the peak of its power, the guild amassed a vast fortune of gold and treasure from their conquests and adventures in YGGDRASIL. All of this wealth would later be interned and stored within the Treasury for safekeeping. Its design and construction were handled by Genjiro and Tabula Smaragdina.[1]

Chronology[]

The Bloody Valkyrie Arc[]

Main article: The Bloody Valkyrie Arc

The Treasury was visited by Ainz Ooal Gown after he learned that Shalltear Bloodfallen was affected by a World Item. Faced with this knowledge, he retrieved the World Items in the Treasury to give to the Floor Guardians to protect them. He later permitted Pandora's Actor to leave the Treasury and move all the gold necessary for Shalltear's revival to the Throne Room[1]

The Witch of the Falling Kingdom Arc[]

Main article: The Witch of the Falling Kingdom Arc

When it was discovered that a Powered Suit was in the possession of Red Drop, Ainz recalled that the Treasury contained a few sets of them, and wanted to go down there to examine them.[2]

Layout[]

The Treasury does not appear in the directory of the floors of the Great Tomb of Nazarick, and could be considered a separate floor by itself in Nazarick. It exists in a separate spatial plane that can only be accessed using the Rings of Ainz Ooal Gown.

Furthermore, every piece of treasure Ainz Ooal Gown owns or acquires through the guild's various activities has its respective place in the Treasury. Treasures of importance are kept in different categories, ranging from armors, weapons, jewelry, auxiliary tools, consumables, manufacturing goods, etc. This makes them easily accessible to guild members.

In addition, within the Treasury lies the Nazarick maintenance room and data crystal storage room, which are both extremely important locations.

Features[]

Entrance[]

Treasury (Mass for the Dead)

Treasure Hall

The entrance to the Treasury begins at the Treasure Hall, a gallery that contains a limitless ceiling and is filled with literal mountains of treasure. While the enormous quantities of gold and luxurious items may appear staggering, the items placed here are considered to be of little value compared to what is locked further in the vaults.

Flying is effectively the only way to cross the mountains of gold towards the gate that leads into the deep recesses of the Treasury. The "Blood of Jormungandr" an unknown item, produces a poison cloud that renders the air in the Treasury highly toxic, preventing thieves from trespassing. If one does not possess any abilities or tools capable of countering the toxins, they would drop dead within three steps.

The Door to the Treasury[]

[“With great sagacity it doth ascend gently from Earth to Heaven. Again it doth descend to Earth, and uniteth in itself the force from things superior and things inferior.” ~Holmyard, Alchemy, p.95]

Overlord EP11 046

The Gate

On the other side of the chamber is a recess in the wall, built in the shape of a door, but actually appears to be a bottomless pit. The door can only be opened by a predetermined password. Though perhaps with high level magic or a special skill from the rogue class, one could force their way through.

The Armory[]

Armory (Mass for the Dead)

Armory

A hundred-meter-long tunnel behind the Door of the Treasury. It is an orderly place, similar to a museum. The dimly-lit room is very long, stretching inward, and the ceiling is about five meters high, having not been designed for humans. The hallway is about ten meters from one wall to the other. The ground is made of tightly-fitting, shiny black stone block, giving off the appearance of a single long stone slab. Neat rows of countless weapons are arrayed on the walls, making for an impressive display. The types of weapons in the Armory is almost uncountable, as contained within are broadswords, greatswords, estocs, flamberges, scimitar, patas, shotels, kukris, claymores, short swords, sword breakers, one-handed axes, two-handed axes, one-handed-bludgeons, javelins, bows, crossbows etc. In addition, there are a great number of weapons which are so unconventional, that it might be a stretch to even call them weapons. There are weapons that could not be possibly sheathed, or were more decorative than useful (which included the majority). Almost none of the paraphilia were made with anything as ordinary as steel. Examples include a sword with a blade of blue crystal, a pure-white sword with gold inlays and engravings, a black sword with purple characters along its body, and even a bow that seems to have been strung with pure light. There are also a large number of dangerous-looking weapons, such as a two-handed axe with a blade that constantly drips fresh blood, a gigantic mace with tormented faces appearing and vanishing on its black metal surface, a lance that resembles human hands clasping each other, a sword whose blade flickers like a flame, or even a sword whose blade looks like whip and wriggles like a centipede. Most of the weapons are magical, but the exact effect of each of them remains a mystery.

The Lobby[]

Lobby (Mass for the Dead)

Lobby

A location at the end of the tunnel of the Armory to receive guests. A tomb-like rectangular room that is composed of a table and sofa set in the middle of the empty space. There are other passages visible to the left and right, similar to the path from the Armory. The height of the room is about five meters, but the dim interior extends further in, with a large niche set into the wall leading to the Mausoleum.

The Mausoleum[]

Avatara 01

Mausoleum Hallway

When each member of Ainz Ooal Gown began to silently retire from YGGDRASIL, every one of them relinquished possession of their personal items and weapons to Momonga as throwaway. The Mausoleum was built by him in honor of those guild members, and acts as a special shrine to them. While all of the guild members' personal equipment are stored here, the great golden stone statues known as Avatara equip those items in their likeness as an honor to them.

Avataras are golems who act as the guardians of the guild members' relics they're equipped with. Additionally, the mausoleum has a special defense mechanism that will only activate should a ring bearer of the Ring of Ainz Ooal Gown were to enter its range or premises. The golems will then awaken and attack the ring bearer, using the very weapons formerly possessed by the guild members of Ainz Ooal Gown. Therefore, one must enter without having on a Ring of Ainz Ooal Gown in order to bypass the activation of the final defense mechanism. Past this place is where Pandora's Actor dwells.

Trivia[]

  • The Treasury was actually meant to be a secret base just for Pandora's Actor and his creator to hang out.[3]
  • The Mausoleum was originally named the Innermost Sanctum of the Treasury, but Momonga renamed it and re-purposed it in memory of his comrades.[1]
  • According to Ainz, he had only come here when paying for the upkeep costs of Nazarick with the money he had earned, and that had been years before his arrival in the New World.[1]
  • Tabula Smaragdina was somewhat unsatisfied with the security measures of the door inside the Treasury, as it was only protected by a simple password. Hence, he began to experiment to see if he could implement a voice-recognition feature by testing it out at the Shazai Kaiken.[4]
  • In Mass for the Dead, the Treasury also temporarily stored many of Nazarick’s daily necessity inventions in a small corner, until they were transferred to a warehouse in E-Rantel.[5]
