Part 49: Chapter Forty-Eight: The Destone OrbTheir terrifying encounter began on the way to the Wetlands cave.
Watch the Story Unfold
I just cant stand living in that village With all those noisy cats
Isnt that ?
Poe, what are you doing in a place like this?
Im just soaking up all this wonderful nature, babe.
Wheres your wife?
I dont want to talk about it!
Do you think I like living there? Eating nothing but fish everyday!
Well, theres no point in complaining to us.
So, you told her you were going out for milk and never came back?
Poe? You went to Belkhyde?
You two know each other?!
Yeah. But whats this about his wife ?
Our boy Poe here married a nice girl named Mitsue. Right?
Poe was less than happy that Viese was informed of this.
Congratulations, Poe. Im really happy for you.
Ah The eyes are the window to the heart
If you look into mine, youll see that my heart belongs to you, not her.
Waaaah! Someone, kill me now!
What is he talking about now ?
Poe rushed ahead, into the cave. They followed, obviously not for Poe but rather for the stalactite stone they needed.

Watch the Dungeon and More
But, Im worried about Poe
Oh, I wouldnt worry about him
He wouldnt die, even if you tried to kill him.
Poe himself certainly gave it a good try.
Nobody even cares if I live or die!
Poes clumsy efforts had left him unharmed, while also bringing half the ceiling of the cave down.
Hey, is everyone okay?
Man He sure is noisy
I think something fell from the ceiling
Feinnes Fourth Wall Lectures: A Minor Note
So, it is possible that the game just became unwinnable for you. See, you need Flay Hammers to gather the Ancient Stone from the stalactites that just fell, and I guess its technically possible to get this far without having triggered that event that gives you the recipe. If you didnt you get to replay the game because it was impossible a bit ago. I can only imagine someone tried to minimize how many recipes they got because when playing normally you should have no problems getting the Flay Hammers without even trying.
Their near death at his hands did make their job a bit easier, though.
Are you guys really going to leave me during my darkest hour?
I cant believe I thought you were my friends
Youre the one who made the cave collapse.
Yeah, we coulda been trapped in there because of you.
Well, Poe wasnt trying to hurt us, so please cut him some slack
Ah, Viese Youre just as kind as I remembered
She isnt mean at all, unlike some other girls I know
What are you trying to say, Poe?
Thats it, Ive made up my mind. Im going to help Viese!
I, Flashbang Poe, am honored to serve as Vieses guardian!
Alright, you can come with us, but you have to tell Mitsue first.
Feines Fourth Wall Lectures: Substitution
So, if youve not played around with alternate materials before this is actually going to force you to. The Mell Orb requires a Mini Pendelook, Shadow Stone, and Glow Lamp to make. The first and last are fixed, but the second is variable. Now that we have the Ancient Stone we can switch the Shadow Stone out, which will cause the recipe to produce a new item, the Destone Orb. Whenever an item has a variable ingredient you should swap through the possible materials, because Viese will note if it seems like there is a new item possible.
Returning to the camp, Viese was able to produce the powerful Destone Orb.
So, its done?
Yes, this item should be strong enough to cure Felt.
Then, you did it, Viese!
Yes, thanks to all of you.
Then, lets go save Felt!
What happened next will have to wait, as events got rather complicated when they returned to Altena Church.
