About the new update, what does the name of the Raid "The Price of Failure" mean?
I have done the story up to the Aes's part, but I could find any clue about which failure and what was the price that was paid.
...Do Nemedians count as humans?
I mean humans. Nemedians are a type of human, after all. Do they call the women oracles and the men priests? Is she the same as him, then?
This town is almost like a haven for lost souls. The folks who live her are quite... unique. We've got a Nemedian priest, a half-blood Fomor, a Gremlin, an unusual ogre, and the Silent Knights...
He's not just a Nemedian, but a human? Hmm... Wait a minute. Have you met my sister? Her name's Dianann. She should've been back by now. I wonder if she's okay...
Ah, I'll just spit it out, then. We're Fomors. Not separatists, not humans in disguise. We're real Fomors. Gertrude, Roma, and Rema are Gremlins. I'm half-Kobold, half-Gremlin. Jornin's a Cassian. Culann is an ogre. Lechaud is the only human among us. Well, he's a Nemedian, to be precise. But he's still the Divine Priest. There was another who didn't take the potion... But he's no longer with us. When I said that potion fights the infection like a vaccine, I wasn't kiddin'. Thing is, if ya take this potion, you'll take on the form of a human. In this town, everyone chose to take on a human form. That means all the Fomors ya saw outside are converts. And those weird priests showed up right when the infection started to spread. Said they worship a "new doctrine." They promised the converts protection from the infection in exchange fer complete loyalty to their faith. No one anticipated the impact of it all... The complete loss of compassion, the overwhelmin' apathy... Those priests were so jealous of the humans' immunity that they destroyed the Nemedian town and started fightin' each other. A massacre took place in that Nemedian town on the way here. Lechaud was the sole survivor... The remainin' Silent Knights managed to rescue Lechaud and brought him to this town."

So Nemedians are certain type of humans, a subspecies.
Also as far as I remember Lugh and Muir were gods, as bona fide as you can get. But at some point they gave up on godhood and their wings. Miur became a mortal (I think?) and Lugh became the hero of the last cycle.
P.S. What Diannan is not a human? Deffinately missed that.

I'm not sure but I think I remember Lugh was more of an adopted son of Muir so I'm guessing he's human
Mannanan made the elf Dauna his son and led him on the path of a hero. Dauna was recognized by Fragarach and received the name of the Shining One, Lugh Lamhfada, known all over Erinn. But Shining Lugh could not break free from the bonds of destiny. When the Goddess and the Devil sealed the evil dragon, Mannanan made a promise with the vanishing Shining Lugh. It was the end of everything, and he was the last hero. He spread his wings and made Shining Lugh and Fragarach sleep forever in paradise. God lost his divinity and became human. Even the last of them, the goddess of strife, fell asleep. The promise and the hero's name were forgotten. The priest chose the path of doom, and the magician chose the path of eternal life.
If you're talking about Jardin Volcano, then yes. You can't go there though. No one can. It's a restricted area. Though, since you're a human... It might be okay... I wonder if that old road is still intact.
So that's the blessed Fragarach. Since you held your own against Arcana, I can only assume that idiot finally did something right.
I have obtained all the materials you require. Now, my goddess, shall we go?
The goal of the Arcana experiment was simple. We were to place the Jardin Volcano spirit into the dead Nemedian's body... We were successful. The spirit had full control of its new body, and we knew we were ready for more complex challenges. But our second experiment was a complete failure. The ancient spirit vanished without a trace. Soon after, Arcana's physical ability rapidly improved. It was as if... she had absorbed that spirit's strength. When our other specimens began to disappear from their enclosures, our suspicions were confirmed. Some of our Fomor collaborators argued to stop the experiments. They feared what she would become. And rightly so... During one of our tests, a researcher came into direct contact with Arcana and died instantly. It seems she is not only capable of absorbing other spirits, but the souls of living creatures as well. When we finally realized our mistake, it was too late. Arcana has gone wild. We can no longer control her. Even our armies are no match for her. I fear all will soon be lost...
