One Knight Stand - King Arthur x Among Us Apocalyptic Road Trip (WIP - 614k)(UPDATE - 01/16/24 + 120k Don't like polo? Have a fencing match instead. Now with extra bug fixes!)

@Natman1025 If you’re still having trouble avoiding possession, I’ve thrown together a guide to corruption. Generally, you want it to stay below seven. In the case of the trailer/bathroom demon in specific, you want it below four at that point in the game. It’s a big game with lots of opportunities to gain corruption, so I’m afraid the guide is a bit messy, but I hope it’s still helpful.
