 CHAPTER 13 MAPS AND PICTURES

 

at the docks of the magical kingdom KREYMORAN, TORTE and his friends stand before a frozen kingdom. everything and everyone has turned to ice.

on the northern side of KREYMORAN’s city wall, they find a way into the town. but things don’t look better from inside, at all. one person, however, escaped the tragedy. the queen of this country, SHARL, rests at a bonfire and is relieved to see the hero’s group appear.

 

she explains that an evil witch attacked her kingdom. that witch is the one responsible for everyone being frozen.

 

a little while ago, a foreign army appeared and offered help. the queen sent them into the nearby MIRULEA FOREST, where the witch is supposed to hide. but queen SHARL hasn’t heard back from them yet and is worried.

 

when she asks what TORTE and his team are doing in this area, she immidiately knows of the ORB, the party is talking about. however, the item is - among everything and everyone else - frozen inside the palace.

to get the ORB, and more importantly, save KREYMORAN, the group decides to travel to MIRULEA FOREST.

 

just before leaving, VERONICA notices the crest on SHARL's cape, but doesn't get too much of a response when asking her about it...

 

the party then enters MIRULEA FOREST, after crossing the icy plains of KREYMORAN. there's slippy ground here around every corner. so they tread carefully. deep inside the forest, a snowstorm emerges and TORTE is seperated from his friends.

 

he continues forward, not being able to see more than what is right in front of him. then, the hero reaches the center of the forest. what he discovers is not the ICE WITCH he was searching for, but instead one of her henchmen. a giant beast.

also, it is not alone... opposing the monster stands a well known soldier: general GREIG. the army that the queen asked for help must have been DELCADAR's...

TORTE does not hesitate. he runs to GREIG's aid and is able to defeat the beast.

 

before GREIG and his enemy, the child of the devil, can continue their own struggle, huge chunks of ice rain from the sky and both warriors are frozen in place.

then, the vicious ICE QUEEN appears, ready to finish them off. the situation seems hopeless, but luckily, TORTE's companions manage to find and rescue him.

the ICE QUEEN flees and general GREIG, too, decides to leave. everyone else runs towards TORTE to see if he is all right, but before the hero can respond, he collapses.

when TORTE opens his eyes again, he finds himself in a cottage just outside the forest. he is then greeted by a stranger who introduces himself as the scholar ECKHARDT. he's been studying the story of the ICE QUEEN for a while now and offers the party support in defeating her. together the group marches towards the ancient library, a place east of the forest. there they should be able to find out more about the ICE QUEEN - most of all: a way to to seal her magical power.

up and up and up goes the library. it's not only a confusing place, but also a high reaching one. on the top floor, the party is lucky enough to find what they were searching for:

 

it’s an old book, explaining the history of the ICE WITCH. apparently, the witch herself was once sealed inside this book. and a major part of her magical power was sealed within a sacred beast...wait a minute...

“…a sacred beast that dwells inside MIRULEA FOREST...”

 

so they didn’t actually go to the forest to stop the witch, but instead to restore her powers. but why would SHARL send them there? when they continue going through the book, the answer becomes clear:

the crest of the ICE WITCH is the same as the one SHARL had on her cape. the party returns to KREYMORAN immediately, ready to confront it's suspicious queen.

as it turns out, SHARL wasn't really SHARL. the ICE WITCH LIZELETT had used her power to freeze the kingdom and took on the queen's appearance. the queen herself, meanwhile, is sealed inside the book.

LIZELETT takes her time to thank TORTE and his friends for bringing back her full power. with a sarcastic smile on her face, she attacks.

 

BOSS: ICE WITCH

 

after a demanding battle, the witch is defeated. ECKHARDT recites the book in order to seal her away and - after a little hickup - manages to do just that.

KREYMORAN is saved! everyone returns to normal. the iceblocks are gone, the people are free from their frozen states and the queen is released from the book.

SNOW                                ICE

while trapped inside, she had heard of the party's wish to get the BLUE ORB of KREYMORAN; and this wish, she is going to grant them.

however, before they are able to conclude this chapter of their journey, something strange happens: a voice from inside the book tells them that she is the real queen. the one that came out of it a moment ago, the voice says, wasn't her, but the ICE WITCH instead. with a simple question towards the two queens, ECKHARDT is able to determine who is lying:

"what is this country's greatest treasure?"

while the woman on the throne answers "the BLUE ORB", the woman in the book replies "it's people"… since those were her father's words, the real queen is revealed...

and she is as kind as ECKHARDT remembered her. despite everything LIZELETT had done, she saves the ICE WITCH from a life sealed inside the book. with a promise never to hurt the kingdom again, LIZELETT remains at queen SHARL's side for now...

but there is even more...the ICE WITCH agrees to tell the tale of how she was released from the book in the first place: a stranger she had never seen before, was the one who freed the witch from her imprisonment. and although LIZELETT is not able to tell the party much more about him, there is one thing she can say for sure. the stranger had a pendant around his neck.

and it was the same as the one general GREIG is wearing...

the group has quite a good idea of who this stranger could be. more important, however, is that they have received the BLUE ORB. all 6 ORBS are now in their possession.

so where to go next? the altar that the sacred branch had shown them, is located deep inside the FOREST OF BEGINNINGS. that forest lies right next to RAMUDA, the sacred ground where SENYA and VERONICA come from.

the hero's ultimate goal is so close now:

the TREE OF LIFE. the truth about his origins.

a way to fulfill his destiny.

it's all within reach...
