there are tests that allow exceptionally strong people to skip couple of floors.
As for the heroine, She will appear in the future.
Baam will use a weapon later

From the last answer, isn't SIU hinting Baam will win the tournament because he will be using a weapon?

Well, he is the favorite to win the tournament, as the protagonist. And a talented Irregular.

Come to think of it, the Goongbang tournament is less a story of different teams clashing together, and more a question of "How the fuck are they going to stop Baam when he was able to tank Urek Mazino?!?!"

The only real countermeasure Team Leesoo has to Baam is Laure, and that guy's potential isn't even in the same league, especially when combined with Baam's developed talent for close quarters combat. Any attempts to exploit his lack of physical durability can easily be held in check by Teddy, who is at least at the level of the team's aces physically. Akraptor and Wagnan can then proceed to continue to keep the rest of the team in check with long to mid-range support.

Not to mention the psychological factor if any one of Team Leesoo is able to recognize him. And let's not even entertain the possibility of the opposite affecting them. Baam's determined enough to beat them within an inch of their lives, because he knows that the alternative is any one of them dying for real. He won't hesitate. It's the one thing that he never does.

Koon, on the other hand, provided that he doesn't know that Viole is Baam, is strategically capable of neutralizing Baam, and he's ruthless enough to do it, too. Edin has speed feats that can make extreme trouble for the team's weaker characters (leading to hostage situations), since the only member with speed feats is Baam, and naturally Koon will be putting him in check regardless of being aware of said speed feats.

On the other hand, if it's Team Koon vs. Team Leesoo, then I'm going to say that it comes down to the party makeup, since Ran and Novak seem to be adequete matches for Anak and Androssi, but will the rest of Team Koon be able to handle the Gator, Hatsu, and Leesoo's Killer Arts?

Probably not.

I'll try to translate more Q&As once I get a chance to do so.
I also have to translate that comic in the Fanart section soon @[email protected]

By the way, is there a way for me to add an apostrophe followed by a "s," following the word, SIU, in the title?

I am shocked xD
Just do an advanced edit of your first post. Then you will be able to edit the title as well.
And thanks for the translations, we, the lost children, definetly crave these translations like candy.

Thanks LaFa. Great stuff you posted! :)

I want to ask you something though, just to be sure. These Q&A were posted by SIU in 2010 or more recently. Or were they asked in 2010 and only now SIU responded to them? It doesn't really matter for most of them when they were posted, but for some it does, for ex. for the one with the female protagonists...

Wow, judging by these three:

Q: Are Yuri and Rachel (Lahel) the only female protagonists? Can you tell us about the other female protagonists?

Spoiler


Q: Will Baam use a weapon later?
Spoiler


SIU: The first floor's contents foreshadow the entire story of Tower of God.


I can guess that the real heroine is Black March, and also the weapon Baam is going to use in the future. Also if Rachel is just a female protagonist, maybe SIU will dare kill her off at some point, or just leave her behind and forget about her.

I find this sentence the most interesting. I had already theorized the paintings on the walls of the first floor seem to hold some significance but this seems to verify it.

From 2010?!

If that is true, then we can speculate who will be the heroine!! I'm a bit disappointed Baam isn't going to end up with Rachel (Am I the only crazy one? Lol)
So if it's from 2010, which female appeared already? Since SIU said the heroine will appear in the future, it means all the females that were in the story at that time aren't the heroine.

That means sadly, no Yuri, no Rachel. Was Anak, Androssi and Hwa Ryun introduced at that time? If they were, then you can count them out. Hope someone can clarify the date SIU posted this Q/A and the date Anak, Androssi and Hwa Ryun were introduced, but seeing the question about "red-haired witches" I would assume Hwa Ryun was introduced already. Then it means Androssi and Anak too. Sad for you supporters T^T

Since SIU said "fuuuutture", then it means he is hinting that it's in the far future, which would probably be now?
Does that mean...*gasp* Yeon Yihwa is the heroine?
If Yihwa ends up with Viole, I bet tons of fangirls, fanboys will be overjoyed. Hmmm, I don't think Repellista or Machenny will work with Baam.

Maybe, the heroine will appear FURTHER into the story? But that means SIU will have to keep introducing females just so Baam can break their hearts =.=
Come on~ This is such a tease!! Will it be Yihwa? Or maybe that "girl?" in the tub that says Emile.
What do you guys think?

Also thanks a lot LaFa!!

Woooww!! I am speechless! Thank you LaFa! There is so much incredibly relevant information. And they also make me cry. Maybe it would be a good idea to add a gigantic SPOILER in the title :P

Q: Are Yuri and Rachel (Lahel) the only female protagonists? Can you tell us about the other female protagonists?

Spoiler


I knew that Rachel was a lot more than people think she is, by far. So besides being SIU´s favorite character, she is THE female protagonist. Obviously she cant be underestimated like the majority of fans are doing. Something that says a lot is that she isn´t the heroine, that someone else will be. Meaning that she won´t fulfil her desire to be the heroine of the story like Headon said. It is kind of sad too... It is saying that Yuri and Hwa Ryun won´t be protagonists or the heroines of the story and that says a lot.... :( :( :( :( :( :( My heart is shattered in a thousand pieces. I kept saying that the one to deserve to be with Baam more was Yuri and possibly be Baam´s heroine but... it seems not.... :( I was hoping for Hwa Ryun to redeem herself and become the counterweight to Headon´s plan with her ability to see the future and possibly change it. And then becoming the story´s heroine and end up with Baam but all that is thrown out of the window too.... I am deeply depressed

Q: Can you really find everything at the top of the tower as Headon says?

Spoiler


This says a lot. It probably means that the story won´t end at the 134th Floor but it will keep going until they reach the real top of the tower which would be awesome. Or maybe it will end in an open ending where it says the protagonists will keep climbing until they reach their dreams or something like that... laaameeee

Q: Urek took 50 years to climb the tower. How long did Lero-ro, Yuri, Yu Han Sung, and Headon take to climb the tower?

Spoiler


In the wiki it says that Yuri took 200 years. I think The Company needs to keep adding stuff at the end of chapters. Obviously there is so much information that is not in the webtoon. I haven´t seen this Q & A´s info at the wiki either(unless I haven´t been through :P).

Q: In chapter 22, we see a bullet disintegrating in midair. Is this Baam's ability or Black March's?

Spoiler


This answers a lot too. I wasn´t sure about what had happened. I thought that it had been Baam or the shinsoo trying to protect him like Gaara´s sand. But a lot of people kept pointing out that after that happened the Black March was highlighted so they were right. And it says a lot about Black March, she is willing to protect Baam, something that we haven´t seen Green April do with Anak. So the relationship is really quite strong. Which also foreshadows that the weapon Baam will have will be Black March

Q: Will Baam use a weapon later?

Spoiler


Black March! :D

SIU: The first floor's contents foreshadow the entire story of Tower of God.


This says a lot too. I don´t think the contents with Baam will be that important BUT Rachel´s content are the ones that will matter Which gives her a lot more power, even above FUG´s plan(unless Headon is part of Fug which I dont think so), and plot armor. Headon´s know probably everything about Rachel and Baam´s past. And Rachel´s motivations/past will be a major catalyst in the story. I have heard that Rachel means revenge in German. Not sure if SIU said that though.

Once more, thank you LaFa. It is a blessing having you with us in this forum. If I were reading this manwha at other sites I would miss so much info.

Scroll down to where Yuri is saying, "Hey Evan, Don't Just hide there".

Look at the wall Yuri is standing in front of, and look at how her hair is lined up.

Looks sorta like Viole, and looks like someone is standing behind him.

There is also three big walls shown in chapter one with depiction on them. The ones shown when Baam is seen standing up after going through the Towers door. The one on the far right kinda looks like Urek, but eh, I wonder.

Thank you so much, Lafa!

There's still a lot of questions left, but I doubt SIU will answer them since it will most likely spoil the story to some readers.

Baam's next weapon is Black March, called it. He was destined to have to that weapon since he used in the Crown Game (well, that was just my opinion).

So Rachel is not the heroine..? Huh, I would have expected SUI to redeem her somehow, but we can't really know, maybe SIU will change his mind. Many women crying for Baam? There's only an answer for that....she chose Androssi (come at me, harem fans).

You are awesome LaFa, thanks a lot^^ :D
But I would be really disappointed if Yihwa is the actual heroine TT I don't really like her...
About who will be heroine or the weapon, It's really hard to talk about them without knowing the time they were posted, can you add a specific date or the chapter number when a question was answered?
If it is not from 13 month series, maybe Baam will win a really exculisive weapon in gongbang?
