Synopsis[]

The war is turning south. Manus continues to plow through the Antinium forces. Pawn's [Acolytes] begin to question their faith and what their religion truly is. Zimrah is gifted with the more comforting side of the Antinium faith, providing morale boosters.

Crusader 51 begins to have nightmares of the slaughters that Lulv inflicts on his battalion. We are introduced to more Antinium. Kevin copies all of Kevin's Kevinness and uses it to gain the favor of many of his non-Antinium comrades. Shelly cons people out of their coins by use of his [Cheater] class and a classic shell-coin guessing game. Turns out Shelly is actually three Antinium that all work together in order to cheat the non-Drakes of a few copper coins. Kevin's Ant squadmates later perished and two of the three Shelly's died as well. The non-Ants begin to feel something similar to remorse as they see the grieving Antinium.

A [Sniper] plagues Hectval’s forces despite multiple reports of the [Sniper] eventually falling in battle. Crusader 57 is tired of all of the slaughter and turns into an Aberration. Calruz prevents Tersk and Dekass from executing him on the spot and Crusader 57 becomes the first Aberration to live.

A [Slaver] of Roshal keeps trying to meet with Olesm but he refuses. Artur shows some leadership talent and is promoted to an officer position. Artur promotes his class to [Banner Leader]. Olesm convinces Pawn’s followers that it is okay to rage during this battle since Hectval has stolen their sky (Erin). Olesm continues to level up in his [Leader] class. Embria starts to show her anti-Antiniumness.

After the death of a Crusader 334, Theophilus begins to rage. His sermons now include the concept of Hell and how Hectval is now doomed to it. He becomes a [Cleric]. Zimrah, Theophilus’ lighter opposite, upgraded to a [Priest] class and gained [Cure Mundane Wounds]. The Painted Antinium arrives as reinforcements. Again, Manus attacks the Painted Antinium and huge losses incur. Theophilus and Jerimy perish and Crusader 53 is killed. Zimrah tries to fulfill Theophilus’ role as the religious head.

Crusader 51 abandons his post since he begins to lose hope. He collects a little ant farm and levels up as an [Ant Farmer]. Crusader 51 returns to the battlefield and begins to counter level. As he does no Antinium dies and Dekass discovers that Crusader 51 gained access to the Unitasis Network (supposedly through his levels in [Ant Farmer]). Crusader 51 gains the [Templar] class and uses a blue skill in his final moments: [My Noble Virtue: Sacrifice]. Lulv is shaken and can only describe the phenomenon with one word: faith.
