Story Arcs Edit
Arc 1: The Doom Snail Arc Edit
In Mundus Memia, five strangers meet in a quest that begins with a request. As they travel, they reveal clear talents, suggesting they are no ordinary group. Soon, however, it becomes clear there is much more to their mission than they first realized.
Arc 2: The Riddle Arc Edit
A year after the devil snail's banishment, Daniel and new ally Doofus are called to Lardrik to investigate increased monster activity. With allies, old and new, joining the party in their quest, the mystery of Mt. Meyer looms on their journey.
Arc 2.5: The Burning Drow Arc Edit
During the Riddle Arc, five other adventures are roped into aiding the island of Caeloria from an unusual drow problem. The unlikely heroes' small task soon becomes dire, as the islands history threatens to repeat itself, and a powerful force at the center of it all.
Arc 3: Memoriae Arc Edit
The group, now known as the Crusaders of the Truth, meet again for the first meeting of Lux Aeterna. They are quickly pulled into some kind of simulation, where they learn the beginnings of the world, and two of the members are confronted with their past.
Arc 4: The Keep Arc Edit
A series of small adventures the Crusaders partake in, mainly in Pharepaix, Harnania, where their new keep resides. Through these adventures, the heroes build connections, strengthen friendships, encounter unusual events, face powerful foes, find love, confront parts of their past, and work to find the Elemental Rings before someone much worse does.
Arc 5: Para Bellum Arc Edit
The Crusaders decide it's finally time to start taking a stand against Sicarus. They target the land of Este, where a rebellion against a corrupt queen is taking place. Can the group pull of the attack, and will they be able to face the consequences of their actions?
Arc 5.5: The Assassination (Evil) Arc Edit
Arc 6: Shadows and Flames Arc Edit
After a trip to Kirlley to find aid in the upcoming demon wars goes astray, the party is stripped of practically everything and left to the wild. However, an old gift has one member sending time backwards, allowing the party to escape a fate of finding their home dead. Now, they must try to save not just their home, but the world.
- For the first two arcs of their adventure, the group did not have an official name. They referred to themselves in more joking names, such as the Band of Idiots, or Doug and Friends.
- While TV Wizard was the first member of the Crusaders to die, he died as an enemy, not a friend. Gowther is officially the first Crusader to die while part of the crew.
- While still technically dead, Gowther has returned to the Crusaders in the form of a Stone Golem made by Doctor Alfonse
- Apollo is the only main character so far in Crusaders, and any of the large campaigns, to have an evil alignment.
- Folkvarðr makes it the first time the Crusaders, and any party in the Doug and Friends set of adventures, has two members with the same class.
- He is also the first member to originate from a different plane than the Material.
