If the Nithling invasion can overcome the Army and the Great Maze, the House will be lost and the whole universe destroyed.While Leaf tries to banish Arthur's doppelganger on Earth, Arthur must survive his basic training, avoid getting posted to the Front and work out how he can free part four of the Will and gain the fourth key from Sir Thursday.
