The moment they opened the door, a cold blast of air came out towards Alisa and her comrades.
Water vapor in the air glittered and sparkled as ice crystals formed. It was a phenomenon known as Diamond Dust. Within the beautiful spectacle stood four ice giants.
“This is as far as you’re going, traitors.”
“Where is La Shiec!?”
“He is not here. Lord La Shiec is on the planet Palma, far above the hills of Baya Malay.”
“I-in a place like that?”
The hills of Baya Malay were located right around where Alisa started from. It was careless of her not to check there.
“But, is it okay for you to tell us something so important?”
“It doesn’t really matter. You all are going to die by the hands of us Ice Men anyway!”
They opened the door to see a long staircase leading up.
Eventually, they reached the top. It seemed they were a good distance from ground level.
Up ahead, the road branched out.
The group came upon an L-shaped corner. A strangely decorated door was on the wall to the south.
(This door can only be opened if you have the MIRACLE KEY and at least 15 MAGIC P.)
A crossroads, once again. The passageway stretched east to west, and to the south there was a steel door.
When they continued along, they reached a door at the end of the passageway. They tried opening it with the Dungeon Key.
Inside the door was a half-man, half-horse knight in blue armor.
“This guy is one of La Shiec’s Imperial Guards — a Centaur!” yelled Tyrone, preparing his ax.
Continuing down the corridor, they came to a door. They tried using the Dungeon Key.
“Oi, who’s here? Oh, a li’l girl?” bellowed the bearded man inside.
“Are you Dr. Luveno? No, you couldn’t be, right…?” said Alisa.
“Wha? Nahh, I ain’t no doctor. Ain’t youse guys ever heard of Da Great Silver Next — legendary pick-pocket?”
“Looks like Dr. Luveno’s not here, either,” said Alisa to the rest of her party, ignoring the man. The group walked away.
On the wall to the north, there was a door. The current passageway stretched east to west.
Alisa came upon a door.
“It won’t open. It’s been locked with a key.”
There is a door in the wall to the north. The path stretches from east to west.
