''Chaos Rings II'' abandons the Ark Arena storyline of the first two games, and instead focuses on a character named Darwin, who is chosen to be the Nominator, and given the task of sacrificing four Candidates in order to prevent the destruction of the world. This game adds new elements to the battle and exploration systems, and allows players to choose their own paths in the story, affecting the plot, with an awful [[spoiler: LightIsNotGood twist that turns the story upside down.]]

* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: In the library one of the logs is from a rite where the pillars were [[AssholeVictim a bunch of slave owners]] and the Nominator was one of their slaves. The log suggests he was quite eager.
