Part 50: Chapter Forty-Nine: The FallThey returned to the Altena Church with the Destone Orb in hand. With its power, Felts fossilization was cured!

Whats everyone Viese?!
I finally get to see you again
I cant even begin to imagine what those two have gone through since they were separated.
I think we should let them catch up, alone.
That was the last good news that would be had for quite some time.
Gardo! The Gardo Continental Drive! Its
This is gonna be bad!!
Did it stop?
Its coming from outside!
Viese, please stay here!
Felt rushed outside to see what was going on.
And, as the swirling energy built in Lake Midgard
Two worlds became one once more.
Thats Eden! Whats happening?
And the wielder of the Crimson Azoth looked on, his plans coming to fruition.
Finally, Edens seal has been broken
Crimson Azoth: Master, I know what you desire. You must hurry.
Yes, I know.
Lets see Eden for ourselves The land of forbidden alchemy.
Felt and his friends were far behind, perhaps too far to have had any chance of stopping what was coming next.
The seal was broken.
Because the Gardo Continental Drive failed, Eden and Belkhyde are no longer separated.
The drive failed
Was that Chaos plan all along?
His true target lies in Eden
If we dont hurry, we may not be able to ever set things right.
Lets get to Eden!
How do we get there?
Its too far to swim.
South Lake Midgard is the closest point to it now.
Then lets go to South Lake Midgard!
As they rushed towards Eden, Chaos and his grim sword were already there.
Crimson Azoth: I believe Lilith has already been reincarnated.
Crimson Azoth: Yes. I can sense it.
Let us open the door to the Temple of Creation first.
Alright, here we go.
It did prove quite helpful, as it turned out, to have the Queen along.
Will you please lend us a boat?
Traveler: What? Who do you think you are?
I am Audrey Zeckzen Slaith, the queen of this nation.
I promise to provide you with a brand new boat for your trouble. Will you kindly let us borrow this boat now?
Traveler: Wow! Youre really the queen!
This is a national emergency. Please let us borrow your boat.
Traveler: Sure Absolutely!
By all means, please take my boat!
Thank you. We must hurry!
Chaos had already reached the Eden Temple, though.
Watch the Darkness Unfurl
Crimson Azoth: Yes, thats it alright.
What do you think youre doing?!
I hadnt expected to see anyone over here
What does this mean? Could this child be ?
Crimson Azoth: She may look different, but I have no doubt.
That child is Lilith.
You mean, this child governs every Mana?
Crimson Azoth: Appearances dont matter.
Who are you?
Crimson Azoth: Let us silence the annoying ones first.
They arrived near the Belkhyde Gate, not far behind Chaos.
I can feel a magical tingle in this land. Kinda tickles.
That is all the Mana power youre feeling.
Lets find Chaos
They pushed on to Noir, where Yach had seen a stranger pass.
Are you alright?
Yeah, Im fine But, I have no idea what just happened here.
I heard an explosion, and the sky changed color
Look, Yach, were chasing someone.
Hes wearing black clothes. Have you seen him?
Did this guy have an Azoth?
Yes! Do you know where he went?
I barely caught sight of him at all. I dont know where he went
But hes probably headed for the Temple of Creation.
The Temple of Creation.
Alright. Thanks, Yach.
Please stay here. We dont know whats going to happen next.
It looks like Chaos is headed for the Temple of Creation.
They were too late.
It seemed as though Chaos plans were coming to fruition.
Why do you always show up at the wrong time ?
Dont tell me you forgot. I did tell you I would do anything for Rie!
And now, Ive stolen the power of this girl, Lilith!
The power of Lilith?!
But he was deceived.
Crimson Azoth: Mwahahahahaha !
Finally, finally I have it! The power of Lilith!
Ive waited 400 years for this! 400 years! And it was all worth it now!
Whats the deal? You told me we would save Rie!
Crimson Azoth: Rie? I dont know any Rie.
Crimson Azoth: Thank you, Chaos, for leading me all this way.
Ill use your body, to show you how grateful I am.
Crimson Azoth: Dont strain yourself.
After all, Im going to show you the true potential of the human body.
And once more the dread alchemist Palaxius walked the land of Belkhyde.
Im sorry, theres no Chaos here.
Only Palaxius, the greatest alchemist who ever lived remains!
Palaxius withdrew to the Temple of Creation, high above Eden, and prepared to unleash his most devastating power upon the land.
And Eden was covered in a terrible fog
Against this power Felt and his friends could do naught but flee.
Everyones turning to stone!
This is not good. We must escape before its too late!
We have to leave her, for now!
We will save Iris later. We have to save ourselves now.
They returned to Riese Palace, where a coalition of forces was assembled to find a solution to the greatest threat the world had ever seen.
Video- The Last Alliance
Watch the Story Unfold
Alchemist Palaxius Whats he all about?
He is the creator of the Crimson Azoth, and said he was the greatest alchemist who ever lived.
He was known for his violent behavior and unusual experiments.
Id say he was the greatest alchemist ever, but not in a good way.
But, hes taken Iris. Id have to save her.
That fog has Eden completely covered.
The moment we enter, well be turned to stone.
Cant we do something?
I dont know
There is something we can do.
Felt, may I see your Azoth?
But, after my fight with Chaos, well
Why Elusmus had been silent since Felts return became obvious. The Azure Azoth was damaged.
It is the ultimate alchemy energy source.
And, it is the source of the Azoths power.
If you can create a new Ruby Prism, then you can repair the Azoth.
And, the only thing that can rival Palaxius and the Crimson Azoth
Is another Azoth. Nothing else even stands a chance.
Okay! Lets create a Ruby Prism and repair the Azoth.
Viese, do we have the recipe?
Yes, we do.
But, the materials are all rare items
Then, lets go find them.
Lets use Riese Palace as our headquarters for this mission.
Well collect as much information as we can.
The Crimson Azoth and the Ruby Prism
A call went out for any with knowledge of either to gather at the palace.
Simsiltian: Yes, your majesty!
See, you do look like royalty.
My duty is to lead my nation during times of crisis.
Now, lets start looking for the materials we need.
We have to work together and share our info at Riese Palace!
Max had been looking into Chaos, and had some interesting results of that search.
I found this.
System Message: Received [Book Alha]!
You now have the recipe for [Megidos Key].
This contains the recipe for Megidos Key
I found that book in his house in this small village called Alha.
In that village ?!
Hes the one who revived Palaxius.
I think the key to stopping him may lie in there, as well.
You should visit Alha Village for yourself.
Hagel had some more bad news.
Rumor has it, that over in Lalizatt Cave, east of Grand
People have reported seeing the Dragon King again.
You mean, Dragon King Ardgevald?!
Yeah, thats the one.
It hasnt destroyed any villages yet, but Id say its only a matter of time.
Well then, this looks like a job for
Its my job, little guy.
Before seeing who else had arrived to help, they headed to camp. First they produced the Megidos Key.
Now we can unlock everything else.
So we can open all the treasure chests!
And locked doors wont stop us anymore.
Well, actually, itll only open locks sealed by alchemy.
But, it will open the door in the Altena Church
That is correct.
Then lets go.
Then they checked the recipe for the Ruby Prism.
Feinnes Fourth Wall Lectures: The Ruby Prism
So heres our next big quest. We have to create a new Ruby Prism for the Azure Azoth. The easiest material component is the Aroma Material, which weve already got one of. Well get another, fortunately, while we search for the other stuff. The other three materials we dont even have recipes for yet. Because its the easiest thing to create, well start with the Reptile Egg. Getting started on that is going to take us to Altena Church, though thatll have to wait for next time.
One thing was certain, they had a lot of work ahead of them.
