Having fled the battle, Lialda (shaped as an eagle) rushed back to Terpenzi to inform him on the events that previously occurred. A couple of days later, she returned to the pit in order to find the rest of the party. There she found a note saying that they had found the “control room” and the directions leading her to a hill with a strange looking door on its side. On her way there she saw Gerthel and landed, turning back to her half-elf form. The two headed towards the door that suddenly opened, with Milutin running in their general direction. He mumbled something about getting back soon and ran past them, leaving them confused. The girls entered the control room, but only to find out that nobody else was there.
As it was getting darker and nobody was returning, Gerthel lit a small fire inside one of the rooms and they tried to rest a bit. However, an uncommonly strong earthquake knocked them down and when they woke up, they felt strangely cold. There was still no sign of the rest of the party members. To their surprise, when they went out of the control room, there was snow outside and no trace of the jungle they used to be in. To Gerthel, everything seemed frightening, as she had never experienced winter before. Leila and Lialda, on the other hand, enjoyed the familiar feeling of snow, although it was obvious that many things went wrong while they were lying unconscious in the control room. The entrance to the control room itself had changed. Instead of the hill, there were now only walls of the building that used to be inside it.
They decided to look around in order to figure out their whereabouts and near a road they ran into an oddly dressed man who presented himself as Ceir Orbeth, the missionary of The Lord (as he calls him). He starts preaching his religion right away and Lialda finds the story similar to the stories of the preachers she had encountered in Neverwinter. However, as much as she inquires, Ceir Orbeth avoids mentioning the name of his god and starts vaguely introducing them to the world they found themselves in. He agrees to accompany them to the nearest populated area, as he is himself on a pilgrimage. Not far from the control room, they encounter a couple of warghs. However, all Lialda’s charms fail and they are forced to kill one wargh and scare away the other. As they are progressing down the road, Lialda starts to feel guilty about murdering the wolf and tries to think of a redemption. She cheers up a bit when she sees a tiny little animal curled up in the snow. As she approaches the animal, she realizes it is a frightened arctic fox cub. With the help of her magic, she calms the animal down and takes it into her arms, deciding at that point to keep it as a pet.
The three continue their journey for another couple of hours, finally reaching the village. As they were approaching, they saw a giant running away from the infuriated crowd with loot in his hands. They joined the crowd in chasing down the giant and eventually fighting it. The giant was finally restrained and escorted to the village to meet justice.
