Finally Daria the mercenary joined the Royal Spy after she got helped to kill YaTeVeo the one that responsible of massacre of her village. Royal Spy was glad that she chose her side but there’s more urgent matter. Paladins of Luna promised that they’ll send their army but they’re delaying it. Even though Ryan and Reynard discovered that the theft of their sacred relic was not part of evil necromancer’s scheme, most of paladins still believe it’s the sign of aggression and furthermore, it’s the act of war.
On the other hand, however, Umbra also believe their stolen relic was part of paladin’s scheme and act of war. The tension between them kept increasing and about to wage a war. It was actually SECRET’s scheme and was done by one of mage, Rashid, the member of SECRET and former Royal Guard Battlemage. Their relic was used to cause New Haven incident, bringing ethereal creatures from the Void. Fortunately Ryan, Daria, and Reynard able to stopped it but as long as it was done by Britannian, Royal Spy decided to kept it in secret.
So they had to find another way to stop this meaningless war between Luna and Umbra. They visited Lord Olivier de Vienne the Champion of Paladins and he knew this is meaningless war as well. However, as long as Umbra is dangerous and refuse to talk, he had no choice but to prepare for the worst. Ryan decided to visit Umbra and meet Hemona the Mistress of the Dead.
They able to capture one of necromancer scouts and asked their help to get inside. They managed to get there and see herself. She strongly criticized paladins of Luna and believed they killed necromancer apprentices and stole their relic, the Book of the Dead. She also mentioned paladins also used something to corrupt the Tree of Muspelheim that connects the Otherworld. Ryan knew this is caused by SECRET and affect not only the Otherworld, but also the entire Ethereal Plane, so he asked he’ll find proof that this is not paladins and there’s someone who pulling the strings.
After her permission, they travel to Dungeon Doom and slay the Dark Father to get it’s blood, and perform the ritual to visit the Otherworld. There, they able to meet Mabuus the legendary necromancer and heard that the mysterious wave breaking the Ethereal Plane and it could cause the Great Merge, which is known worlds and unknown worlds collide each others. It means the end of our world, and he told that they should find who and what caused it. This is not the time to do any hostile act on each others.
At that moment, Nidhogg the Devourer who guarding the Otherworld noticed there’s living inside of his realm and coming to consume them. With Mabuus’ help, they able to escape from the Otherworld and told what Mabuus said. At last, they finally lay down their weapons and start to talk each other to negotiate.
Royal Spy is now relieved that paladins will send their troops as promised. But Ryan concerns what Mabuus said. When he mentioned about the Great Merge, he said elves might know something because every facets has the World Tree and they are all connected. If one corrupted, the others may affected. And the elves have been taking care of the World Tree for centuries, they might noticed something. He decides to travel to their hometown, the Heartwood.
