After the battle, Martin sustains an injury which Oksana promptly heals. Martin reveals that the stones that empower her are wielded by men who dress as Ecthain clergymen, but who are far from benevolent; he suspects Duriken's involvement. A travelling merchant appears and offers his wares, so Tevoran and Co. elect to rest for a while.

Vera directs their attention to Casimir, but the others are dismissive of his apparent demise. Fortunately, Casimir recovers. Martin, Vera, Zofia, and Casimir depart for Tierva to defeat Duriken, while Tevoran declares his intention to head east to Hrvain in pursuit of further riches.

Tevoran and Co. arrive and pay Casimir for his efforts.

As the group prepares to remove Jedmesz's head as proof of his death, they suddenly hear a noise and see Aizu, alive, well, munching on Jedmesz's food stores, and with no recollection of her near-death in Vorona.

Upon learning about Martin and Zofia's plans, Tevoran decides to seek fortune in Niendam as well. With few other options, Martin asks for their aid. Suddenly, Vera recognizes Aizu as the "blue fairy" she saw earlier. Martin is shocked to discover Aizu alive and well, but she is unable to tell him why Duriken and Hrvain want her.

Martin's party arrives at the Niendam meeting hall and receives an audience with King Volebor. Volebor is irritated by Martin's grovelling and pleased by Tevoran's lack of tact.

Scene 8 - Mountain Cave Edit
The party arrives at the cave and claims Volebor's "trophy", an ordinary beer mug. When Martin picks it up, a burst of fog covers the room, and the entrance mysteriously vanishes. The fog quickly proves to have a narcotic effect on the party, and they begin suffering from impaired mental faculties and visual and auditory hallucinations, including an apparent one of Vadim.

Zofia drags Milan off to have a private conversation.
Scene 5 - Tiervan Train Station Edit
Tevoran and Ysabel catch up to Ivan at the local train station. Ivan explains that with everything that has happened in recent weeks, he wants to flee and start over. Tevoran sees through his lies and accuses him of wanting to abandon them to search for his father. When Ysabel mouths off at Ivan's goals, Tevoran threatens to reveal her life's ambition, much to her embarrassment. He then explains that he has no intention of leaving Tierva to Voronese control, and plans to rectify the situation by assassinating Leithar. Ysabel points out that he has no way to accomplish this goal, while Ivan notes that he could cause an even worse power vacuum. Tevoran's solution is to install Milan as the new leader of Tierva. Ivan worries that he may become the target of assassins seeking to threaten Milan. Ysabel mocks him for his apparent paranoia just as Voronese assassins arrive to eliminate them.
Scene 6 - Vaclav Manor Edit
After beating back the assassins, Ivan, Tevoran, and Ysabel return to the manor. Ivan proceeds to brutally browbeat Milan into taking a leadership role in Tierva. Ysabel watches the spectacle and realizes Tevoran planned this all along. Milan agrees to take the reins, but refuses to allow Ivan to inherit the city. He explains that he intends to produce a new heir and unexpectedly proposes to Zofia. Tevoran objects, but Milan orders him to explain his plan to defeat Vorona. Ysabel explains that the assassins were an advance reconnaissance force for the main Voronese army.

Tevoran dismisses his concerns, and the group leaves to attend Milan's speech to the public.
Scene 10 - Tierva Main Gate Edit
The group returns from the speech, with Ivan and Ysabel not impressed. Tevoran elaborates on his earlier plan; he intends to sneak behind enemy lines and have Martin convince the generals to defect to their side.

Scene 11 Edit
After a gruesome battle, a friendly captain reports that the enemy has fallen into disarray and that Niendan support has carried the day in favor of Tierva.

Scene 12 - Tierva Highlands Edit
The enemy agrees to surrender on the condition that Martin restrain his Niendan allies. However, Volebor is reluctant to stand down. Martin appeases him with the promise of further battles in Masori and Vorona. As Martin sends his new allies to begin the march to Masori, Fallon the Cloaked Woman appears. Fallon offers Martin a way to defeat Duriken instantly: if he surrenders Aizu, she will crush Duriken for him. However, Duriken himself also arrives. Martin attempts to attack Duriken, but is effortlessly brushed aside. Duriken wipes out Tevoran and Co. and orders Aizu to come with him. Volebor attempts to charge Fallon, who effortlessly kills him. She also demands that Aizu come with her. As Aizu begins to prepare a powerful spell, Duriken restores some of her memories, revealing that he is her father. This is enough to sway Aizu into going with him, and an enraged Fallon vows to defeat Duriken. Tevoran and Co. recover from the attack. Ysabel and Vera demand to attack, but Tevoran and Martin order them all to flee.
Scene 13 Edit
After Tevoran and Co. make their escape, Fallon accuses Duriken of betraying her. Duriken retorts that the human powers are turning against each other and that their alliance was guaranteed to collapse anyway. He accuses Fallon of ruining their mutual plans with her recklessness, and of intending her homeland of Thalaea to subjugate Duriken's people. He retreats, leaving Fallon to plot her revenge.
Scene 14 Edit
Martin elects to continue their previous plan to retake Masori and Vorona, but remains troubled by Duriken and Aizu. He speculates that Duriken must have retreated to Vorona to recuperate from his battle with Fallon. Martin is confident that Masori will be an easy victory, but Vorona gives him some pause. Tevoran suggests infiltrating Vorona through Zofia's work tunnels in Masori. Since Zofia previously destroyed the Masori entrance, she admits they will have to excavate it. When Ivan points out the logistical issues of marching an entire army through the tunnels, Tevoran decides to simply have his company do the heavy lifting.
Episode 14 - October 31, 1427, Masori Edit
Scene 1 - Masori Train Station Edit

Scene 5 - Voronese Safehouse Edit
The group arrives in Vorona without any further incident. Martin and Vera leave in disguise to ascertain the current mood of the common people.

The group takes some time to prepare for battle.

Scene 7 - Vorona Palace Steps Edit
Martin expresses his regret at having to kill the soldiers, though Ivan reminds him that he was the one that sentenced them to death. Vera tells Martin that the soldiers would've died had they not followed the order of King Oskar, and hopes that he and Rudolf come to their senses, though Ysabel is just itching to kill Rudolf. The group prepares to enter the palace.
Scene 8 - Vorona Palace Interior Edit
The palace appears to be empty, but when Vera calls out, she is answered by none other than Rudolf, with Oskar and an enchantress beside him. He declares himself the King of Vorona, and when Martin asks Oskar for his opinion, he does not answer. Rudolf tells them that Duriken has done something to Oskar, and since he's unresponsive, the current prince will be in charge now. Vera and Martin request that if Rudolf gives up this oppressive act, they'll forgive him, but he does not relent. He even reveals to them that the red stones they use for powers are made from the blood of their people, and they weren't able to save any of them, or what was once their father. Ysabel wants to fight already, so Martin is forced to fight against his family with the help of Tevoran and Company.
Scene 9 - Vorona Palace Interior Edit
Rudolf whines about he won't let the group take everything away from him, hoping that his drugs will save him before ultimately dying. Though they weren't close, Martin still finds his death tragic. Tevoran wonders aloud about what he said about the stones, being made from the blood of the dead. Martin acknowledges that it is vile, but the peoples' lives won't be in vain if they use the stones to fight evil. Knowing this, Vera attempts to revive the deceased Oskar, but to no avail. Martin swears revenge on Duriken, though Ivan and Zofia are hesitant to go up against him again. Martin leads the group onwards anyways.
Scene 10 - Vorona Palace Throne Room Edit
Inside the throne room, the party confronts Duriken at last and discovers he has Aizu in his company. Duriken claims that Aizu is a weapon and orders her to attack the party. However, she seizes and merges with the dismembered arm found in the underground tunnels. Aizu begins rambling incoherently, to the party's confusion; Duriken declares that a god will be resurrected and Aizu to be an avatar of Ecthain before siccing her on the party. With no other recourse, Tevoran and Co. battle Duriken and Aizu.
Scene 11 Edit
Martin and his companions emerge victorious, and Duriken blames his defeat on Fallon and declares his intention to retreat. Aizu returns to her senses and renounces him. She knocks him out and explains that the party is meddling in forces beyond their ken and only she can fix things. After bidding them farewell, she teleports them all away. As Duriken recovers, Aizu declares he cannot control her and that she now knows herself. She attempts to finish him, but Duriken protects himself with a part of Aizu and flees. Aizu then loses control of her power and explodes violently.

Martin appears and reveals Vera has gone missing; he explains that she was last seen heading south and begs the group to find her. Martin then relates that Vera believes Aizu is still alive, and furthermore, that he's becoming concerned by his sister's obsession with her. Tevoran makes a veiled innuendo concerning what such "obsession" might entail, before departing with most of their companions, leaving only Ivan and Ysabel. Ivan begrudgingly admits he is starting to enjoy being part of Tevoran's group.
