 CHAPTER 16 MAPS AND PICTURES

 

since URNOGA’s rise the shape of the land has changed dramatically. therefore, GREIG and TORTE are able to reach their destination by foot. through the HIDDEN NAPGANA WOODS, they get to the SOLTIANA REGION. from there, it’s north to the DULANDA MOUNTAINS.

near the mountain’s peak they find the secret place the king told them about: DULDA ENCLAVE. after some discussion in front of DULDA’s gates, they meet the leader of the local monks. his name is SANPO and apparently, he has already waited for TORTE’s arrival. it is from him, that TORTE learns in what way this enclave is connected to the hero…

since time immemorial, DULDA serves as some kind of trainingground for the royal family of YUGUNOA. at the age of 6, the king’s children are supposed to come here and hone their skills. but YUGUNOA was destroyed and TORTE lost, before he could reach this age.

 

HOMETOWN    研修 TRAINING

so the monks waited for him to one day appear at their doorstep - when the circumstances demand it.

SANPO shows TORTE the sacred arena where the hero LOTIU left behind a stone tablet, sharing his knowledge about an incredible skill. one of his companions, URANOS, was able to use it. but right now, SANPO could think of no one who could be able to master that technique.

well, except one: the monks’ former pupil ROU.

 

but since no one knows what happened to TORTE’s grandfather after the DEMON KING’s rise, TORTE and GREIG decide to leave DULDA for now.

 

but then, they run into a commotion outside of the temple.

the young monks report to have seen another monk walking towards the mountain peak. but the monsters on the road are to tough for them, so they couldn’t chase after the stranger. TORTE and GREIG offer their help. together with SANPO the head up the mountain peak.

what they find there is not only a wonderful view, but also a strange altar. inside of it, a mummified monk is taking his last rest. could this be the monk that they were searching for? and why does his nose look so funny?

when TORTE realizes that the dead monk is none other than ROU, he is shocked. luckily, SANPO knows of a way to bring his grandfather back. using an old meditation method, he transfers the hero to the realm of the dead.

 

the guardian of this place is a beautiful woman, who explains to TORTE a rather important change that the destruction of the tree of life has brought to this world:

the tree is responsible for the reincarnation of souls. they are reborn into a new body - just as LOTIU’s soul was reborn within TORTE. with the tree gone, however, the realm of the dead is the last retreat for all those souls. a dead end. if they can’t be reborn, they will start to disappear into the realm of nothingness… to the young man’s relief, his grandfather isn’t one of those lost souls. because he isn’t actually dead. ROU has been hiding in this realm to train and master URANOS’ ancient skill GRAND CROSS. and he suceeds!

now it’s TORTE’s turn to grow stronger. the guardian has a new power for him, but to awaken it, he has to fight against ROU. during the fight, the hero notices his skill getting stronger each time he uses it. when the battle is over, he feels in control of this sacred power, and his grandfather is very proud that he has grown into such a strong young man.

but it’s too soon to celebrate. a dark voice echoes through the realm of the dead. URNOGA has found this last sanctum for LOTOZETACIA’s souls. and of course, he is trying to destroy it.

with her last strength, the guardian is able to repel the DEMON KING, but her power alone isn’t going to be enough. she reveals the final secret of these halls to TORTE and ROU: their new skills combined create another one: GRAND NEBULA. together, grandfather and grandson use that ancient technique and manage to drive off URNOGA for now.

with a smile, the guardian returns the two back to the land of the living…

…where GREIG and SANPO have eagerly waited for both of them to wake up.
