Part 25: Chapter Twenty-Four: The Dragon KingWhile in Grand Gray had mentioned the highway south of Grand was full of peaceful farms. They headed there and heard an interesting rumor.
They also heard something ominous.
Town Guy: But the Empire came in and took all the food.
And left us only with this
West of the main road they found the camp, but it was too large to even consider attacking.
It looks like some kind of Imperial campground.
Its dangerous to stay around here.
Yeah, I think youre right
And so they returned to Grand and passed through the Mist Valley to Claire Village, the town under attack by a dragon.
Old Lady: You are Gray, the Dragon Slayer and his assistants, right?
Yes, I guess you could say that.
Old Lady: My granddaughter told me all about it.
I believe the dragon lives just to the north, at Lalizatt Cave.
In that case, we better wait til tomorrow.
Old Lady: Excellent. You should all stay in the village to restore your strength.
Thank you. We will.
Okay everyone, split up.
I guess Ill take a look around the village.
Felt also heard another odd rumor.
Traveler: But, theres nothing like that here
Poe and Noin had gone off on their own somewhere, but Felt did run into Fee.

I heard from some of their villagers
I heard that another workshop may have been found.
Yes. Up in the mountains to the northeast, in a place called Nelvia.
Wow, the Amazing Fee
In always thinking ahead.
Ive been preoccupied with getting rid of that dragon.
So have I.
I may be scared of fighting the dragon.
And, thinking ahead helps calm me down.
Maybe Im just not strong enough.
Lets go. Everyones waiting.
System Message: Fee has joined the party!
They also found Gray waiting by the water on the south end. He was also quite worried.
Gray, whats going on?
Youre acting kinda strange.
She said it was a dragon with red and black scales, right?
It was the Dragon King, Ardgevald
If the reports are correct, this is going to be an excruciating battle.
I dont think Im up for it
He was right to be worried.
Its coming in this direction!
Boss Battle: Dragon King Ardgevald
Ardgevald is nearly invulnerable and does massive damage in this fight. Theres no way to win and hell swiftly pound you into the ground.
Ardgevald had defeated them, and all hope seemed lost when Fee struggled to her feet.
She unleashed a brutal attack out of nowhere, and Ardgevald was driven off.
Is it gone ?
And then she collapsed in a heap.
Fortunately, she was fine. Everyone gathered back at camp.
Keep your eyes open.
Fee, are you alright?!
Yes, I think so.
It almost killed us. Were lucky to be alive!
The Imperial dragon Ardgevald is rumored to be the king of dragons.
Its always been the ringleader.
Ive spent many years trying to hunt it down.
But I am nothing compared to it.
What? Man, if I was there, we woulda taken that dragon down!
Says the guy who was sleeping through the entire encounter.
What are we going to do now?
That dragon is probably going to attack the village now.
Whatever we do, we have to take that dragon down.
Theres only one thing that we can do.
Go see grandpa?
Whoever this grandpa was, it seemed that was the case.
I really didnt want to see him
Theres a place called the Dragons Den to the south.
We all better train there.
And so they prepared to head to the Dragons Den. Next time well see this training and its results.
