'SPOILERS ENCLOSED! Click "show" to reveal, otherwise skip to the following section.

Chapter I[]

The heroes successfully reach port after their escape from Jadd Stronghold, and search for clues as to where the next Mana Stone may be. The locals tell them that the Hero King of Valsena might know something of the Stones and that they will need to cross a bridge over Stonesplit Gap to get to Valsena. However, the trade route known as the Golden Road has seen an increase in monster activity and has become too dangerous to travel safely.

Amid the hustle and bustle, there are whispers of an alchemic inventor named Von Boyage working on one of his latest creations. The heroes decide to investigate. Von Boyage is all too eager to show off his work: a massive cannon designed to transport people over great distances. However, he is not yet finished with the cannon, and so sends the heroes off to Valsena to continue their quest.

As they leave, a ship's captain stops them with disturbing news of the Priest of Light, who has fallen gravely ill from erecting a second ward over Wendel to repel Ferolia's beastmen. Heath is the only person believed to be capable of reversing the effects, but he is missing. Charlotte is moved to tears over her grandfather's plight, but the others intervene to calm her down.

After the heroes spar with Altenish mages on the bridge to Valsena, the bridge is obliterated by a Machine Golem's self-destruct sequence, leaving them puzzled as to finding another route. They return to Maia, where Von Boyage has completed his "Super Deluxe Turbo Cannon Mark 2". Von Boyage is thrilled, but forgot about adding a propellant fuel in his zeal. He suggests using nitromyte. Asking around town once more, our heroes discover that dwarves living in Stonesplit Gap may have the explosive fuel.

Returning with the nitromyte, the heroes visit Von Boyage one more time, who loads the trio into his cannon to blast off toward Valsena.

Spoiler ends here.
