I am reading this light novel called GGO and in it I came across these lines:

"AGI (Agility) being all powerful is just an illusion."

The man's high tones spread throughout the spacious bar.

and I can't figure out what the second line means here.

  • Can you add the rest of the second line to the quote? It isn't a complete-enough context for an answer. Also, is there an online ref? Is Illusion actually capitalized in original? [Please edit the question] – James Waldby - jwpat7 Jul 30 '14 at 5:08
  • I think these lines are from the prologue of this site- gungaleonlinevmmorpg.blogspot.in/p/… – Manish Giri Jul 30 '14 at 5:22
  • The phrase "high tones" refers to the pitch of the man's voice as he spoke; the bar is an establishment that sells liquor and other alcoholic beverages. – Sven Yargs Jul 30 '14 at 6:05

Following is a quote including the bit from the question, plus some later lines. [Source: a gungaleonlinevmmorpg blog]

“AGI(Agility) being all powerful is just an illusion!” The man’s high tones spread throughout the spacious bar. “It is true that AGI is an important attribute as it determines firing speed and avoidance rate. These two factors could make you very strong, until now that is.” [...] That speech came from a player in the square holo-panel floating in the center of the dim shop. It was the net broadcast, [...] You could watch it in the real world from a television or a computer, but it was also broadcasted in many VRMMO worlds’ inns and bars simultaneously, [...]

From the extended context, it's clear that bar means a saloon or pub where alcohol is served. There is a man speaking via a holo-panel, turned up loudly enough to be heard throughout a certain bar. His voice is high-pitched, but I have the impression (from use of the word tones) it may be mellow enough for easy listening.
