Part 15: Chapter Fiveteen: Fire in the WetlandsTheir mission now clear, Felt and his allies left to find the Workshop Eizlen told them was within the cave known as the Source. The cave was behind a waterfall in a region known as the Wetlands.
And deep within that cave, they found a strange stone door.

But, it wont open.
I am the only one who can enter.
In a flash Felt was gone, and reappeared inside the Workshop.
Azure Azoth: To be precise, these are known as the Paradies auf Eden.
These workshops absorb stone elements to create new lands.
Igniting this workshop will restore the Fire Manas holy ground.
The Workshop didnt seem to be damaged, it was merely inactive for some reason. Restoring it was the work of a few minutes.
Azure Azoth: In due time, these workshops will restore Eden.
I thought you said people were the root of all evil.
But, if you believe that, you should have told me from the start.
Azure Azoth: I sensed it from the day I chose you.
Your abilities, your virtues
I am beginning to regret my decision to involve you in the first place.
Azure Azoth: You allow your emotions to sway your judgment. You are incapable of acting rationally.
You were aware of the threat that girl posed to us, yet you saved her.
And, you fail to grasp the severity of the Crimson Azoth.
Azure Azoth: You do not possess the proper insight to wield the Azoth effectively.
Even with my power you will be unable to destroy the Crimson Azoth.
I didnt travel all this way to fight with you now!
Felt was one of those crazy sorts of people who seriously believed that good intentions will win the day despite all evidence to the contrary.
And believe it or not, I do know how dangerous the Crimson Azoth is.
But, Im here to save Eden
To save Viese and everyone else there.
Felt returned, successful but far from his final goal.
Howd it go?
I was able to fix a part of the problem.
Well, you should get sleep before fixing the rest of the problem.
Thats not a bad idea.
They returned to camp to plan their next move.
So you must restore Eden, one workshop at a time.
What is it, Gray?
I know Ive seen a door like that before in Grand, to the east.
Yes, but I dont quite remember where My memory is a bit fuzzy.
At least we know where to start looking.
We might as well get some rest and head for Grand in the morning.
At least I restored the Fire Manas holy ground
I wonder what Viese is up to
Back in Eden they were in an uproar, as the Scarlet Temple had indeed reappeared.

Have you heard the news?!
The Shrine of Everlasting Flame has reappeared!
Everyones talking about it. And if you dont hurry, you might miss it.
Gotta go. See ya later!
Felt was right about everything thats happening.
There was a huge disaster caused by the [Crimson Azoth]. It was that other Azoth, which this guy Chaos has. I fought him, but he was much stronger than me. Gray saved me, but Ive seen how much stronger he truly is
Anyway, it seems that something has happened to the Gardo Continental Drive that separates Eden from Belkhyde. Thats why parts of Eden disappeared. Now I have to find these workshops that support Eden and fix them.
Hard to believe, huh? Im not sure that I even believe it yet. But if it is true, then the Scarlet Temple should reappear soon. We dont know where all the other workshops are, but were working hard to find them. Please let Kreuz know about this.
It seemed the Azure Azoth was correct about the results of repairing the Workshop.
Belkhyde and Eden. The result of an alchemy disaster.
A disaster caused by the Crimson Azoth.
I dont understand how this all happened.
But Felt is right. I have to talk with Kreuz.
Viese noticed Klavia seemed if anything more upset than last time and stopped in to chat with her again.
You dont look well. Are you still worried?
I wonder what purpose a Mana like me can have
Dont get so down on yourself.
But, a canary can sing so beautifully without even trying!
Im a Sound Mana. Wonderful singing is supposed to come naturally to me!
But Im terrible at singing
Why was I born to this horrible fate?
Well, why dont you practice? Practice makes perfect, after all.
I dont think practicing can help my voice
Youll never know until--
No. I was destined to be a bad singer. Nothing can change that
Viese at this point was quite finished listening to this little pity party.
Its easy to be bad at something when you first start!
But if you persevere and keep practicing, you will get much better!
Besides, canaries and other Sound Mana might be practicing behind your back!
Its so sad that youre giving up on ever getting better
Im sorry Im being too hard on you
No Its okay
Im gonna start practicing. Thank you.
After that, Viese hurried to the Eden Temple to tell Kreuz what was going on.
Ah, Viese. Have you heard about the Shrine of Everlasting Flame?
Yes, thats what I came to talk to you about
We must consider all possibilities regarding the Fire Manas shrine.
Can such a connection between Belkhyde and Eden really exist?
It would seem so. Felt believed he had restored the Fire Manas shrine
And, it has reappeared here in Eden.
That is true.
Im going to do some research on Belkhyde.
I may find some information that Felt can use.
Yes, do that
You should begin your research at the Noir Historical Society.
The Noir Historical Society
Thats the building in the middle of town square.
Oh, it is currently cloaked in darkness, so you wont find much.
But, if you use a Glow Lamp inside, you should be able to look around
A Glow Lamp
You have my approval to keep anything you find in there that will help.
Well, anything that will help Felt.
Im going to do it!
Ill just make a Glow Lamp and then Ill search inside.
Viese saw a familiar face on the way out of the Temple.

It was a shame you had to run off so soon the other day.
Oh, Im sorry
No, dont be. Its okay.
Its nice to see you again.
Do you mind if I go with you?
Huh? Wont your parents be worried about you?
They arent here.
Oh, I didnt know
Okay. You can live with me as long as you want.
You really dont mind if I stay with you ?
We should notify a responsible adult, but we can do that later.
Viese and Iris headed back to Noir together. She didnt have a recipe for a Glow Lamp, but luckily Yach did.
Hello Yach. Youre in a good mood today.
Oh, yeah. I organized the store room today.
I found a lot more items back there.
Are you going to sell them?
Absolutely! Id even sell my parents if it wasnt totally illegal!
You would sell your parents?!
Once Im elected to Congress and make it legal, you bet.
I think that is precisely the reason why youre running this shop and not in Congress
Oh, and remind me never to vote for you.
Okay, well, please look at my new merchandise.
Theres a scroll that contains the recipe for Glow Lamp.
Its in [The Light].
Hed also tried out the Flay Hammers Viese had given him, with somewhat poor results.
Huh? You dont look so good.
I tried using Flay Hammers all over the place.
But instead of getting precious metals or jewels, all I got was cheap ore.
Well, you cant expect to find expensive things that easily.
I was hoping that it wouldnt take much skill to break open those rocks.
I guess you learn something new everyday. At least it was a good workout.
Viese then took Iris back to the workshop.
Hes my best friend. Hes far away right now.
But, you can stay here whenever you want.
Just think of this as your place, too. So come by whenever you want.
In order to make the Glow Lamp, though, Viese would need a pact with a Fire Mana. And next time, well find out how complicated a certain individual made what should have been simple
