While the party was busy liberating Pandora, thieves broke into the Water Palace and snatched the Mana Seed of Water from beneath Luka's watch. However, the sage senses that it could have been taken to Gaia's Navel and so orders Randi to return there. They find a new hole bored through the rock, and land on a ship burrowed beneath it. Strange though it is, the party proceeds to the center. There, they find the Scorpion Army plans to use the Seed to power a machine they've invented and sets it against the party. The droid overloads and goes berserk, panicking the Scorpions and leaving the party to battle and destroy it. The Scorpion Army vows to get back at Randi and co. as they retreat.
