-1 Codex: System Overview
NOTE that this auxiliary chapter is intended to extrapolate and recap the 'Ethereal Paradigm', a system that controls the 3rd realm called 'NÆthervale' and thus, contains 'SPOILERS.
If by far, you want your reading experience smooth and flawless, then you should read the FIRST TWO VOLUMES, before you can read this, clean of doubt. On the other hand, if you're a masochistic Nimrod who likes to bend the rules for no reason at all, I'm gonna have to disqualify you...And remember, disqualification means? Right...DEATH!
[IT IS RECOMMENDED FOR YOU TO READ THE PRECEEDING CHAPTERS AND VOLUMES, AND JUST COME HERE IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT THE SYSTEM.]
Furthermore, I would like to remind, that the information inscribed in this chapter is NOT Final. Some things will be added along with the upcoming updates.

Excursus ✠ The Warfare of Fates (SPOILER) (Explained on the SEQUELS and as well as on the other preceding chapters)
A Divine Decree for War from the 'Highest Majesty' where deities are mandated to choose a human vessel for their own, which they will call as their 'Herrscher' (A human who will bear their will as a divinity and will be subjected to their overwhelming powers)
It would take place in the Third Realm, 'NÆthervale', where unlike earth, has a surreal system that the deities emblazoned as the "Ethereal Paradigm."
The deity who triumphs in this war will decide the ultimate fate of humanity and the human gets to have a wish of his own accord.
I ✠ PERSONA INTERFACE (PI) (Explained in Chapters 51 and 52)
An interface/platform prebuilt in the Ethereal Paradigm that shows the participants', Herrschers' and NÆthervalians'; 1] Profile, 2] Re: Characterization Database 3] General Information.
It contains the most basic information that can be kept hidden, depending on the user.

3] GENERAL INFORMATION
Shows stable updates on Sentient Contender Count, Herrscher Count and showcases announcements from the Goddess Athena.
II ✠ SENTIENT CONTENDER COUNT (Spoiler).....
SCC. A live count, daily accomplished by the magistrates' appointed game master/emcee, Goddess Athena, which pertains to the remaining participants, alive, well and still striving in the warfare.
Current SCC= 345, 457 - (has been decreased GREATLY)
III ✠ HERRSCHERS IN CONTRACT (HEAVY SPOILERS)...
These listed below are the assured Herrschers currently on the warfare, confirmed to be alive and well. This list is dynamic and can CHANGE ANYTIME, as the warfare continues and as we meet new characters which have agreed to form an alliance with a Deity, thereby having an 'Insignia' somewhere on their body, a symbol of the contract. If the Herrscher will have an '(x)' mark after their name, it signifies the Herrscher has been ELIMINATED.

IV ✠ ETHEREAL PARADIGM...
Unlike Earth which incorporates the 'Reality System' where supernatural occurrences are almost all banned, and the connection between a deity and a man is limited, this system is the complete opposite. It is a surreal system currently installed in NÆthervale, a massive realm thrice the size of Earth which hosts the eon's Warfare of Fates. It incorporates a virtual-like environment for the contenders' grandeur, where monsters are killed for grinding and experience, Relics of discrepant origin are equipped, where you can create your own faction alongside others with shared-goals... except, their life is at CONSTANT STAKE. (WAS EXPLAINED ON THE FIRST 30 CHAPTERS)
