Added DiffLines:

* NoAntagonist: Averted in New Believers, where the masked villagers nicknamed heathens will oppose you and guard most of the areas.
* SequelDifficultySpike: New Believers shows this as it has most of the areas blocked off by enemies called heathens. Clearing them requires the challenge of magics, multi-tasking, and cooperation.
