Olarcha: *Raises one hand, fingers loosely folded* Gandr.
Barthomeloi: *Blocks with one gauntlet, causing a sudden burst of dark energy to seethe off of her palm* So be it.
Pastelle: Sincerity, we can't win with that mana-killer. I guarantee we'll meet Olarcha again - But we can't let ourselves be killed before completing our mission.
Barthomeloi: ... *Snarls* Very well. *Raises gauntlets, channeling all that remains of her mana*
*This turns out to be an immense amount, and with a blazing light, she and her troops disappear*
Olarcha: Hmph. Pastelle Riesbyfe...The only woman I've ever seen talk sense into anyone of the Barthomeloi Family.
*While Nasus is still distant, she casts a healing spell on herself*

[ Hei Fon 4, Conquistadores Guildhouse: ]
Namah: *Has found two individuals already at the supposed entrance to the "Third Floor"*
*They are Gazille, and the darkskinned, blondhaired girl in the orange critter hat who helped repulse the attack by the Summer Pillars earlier*
Namah: Hey, Gazille. *Looks at the other girl* Your name's Hammit, right?
Hammit: C.C. Hammit, yes. Mr. Redfox is letting me train with him. *Turns to Gazille* Thank you again, sir.
Gazille: *Facepalm* God. Hammit, stop calling me "Mister" and "Sir," please.
Namah: Well, do you have room for one more? I've been interested by this place, as well.
Gazille: Sure. Thing is, for today's challenge, you need a team of five. Everyone else is either asleep this time of the morning, busy in the Guildhouse, or out on a mission.
???: Then perhaps the two of us could tag along with you?
*The three turn to look, and see Mia and Elk approaching from up the hall*
Namah: Well...You're not official members of the Guild...Eh. I don't see why it couldn't work.
Gazille: Alright. Are you ready to head in there, Hammit?
Hammit: Yep. *Removes a dark green crystal orb from a pocket on vest*
Mia: Stay where it's safest once we enter, Elk. There'll likely be serious dangers in here.
Elk: I promise I'll be careful, Mia!
*With a glow, the staircase's top is illuminated by a blue glow that draws the five in*
*A soft male voice speaks as they're all warped away*
???: Accessing: Fourth Chimeric Lunar Sea.

[ A Forgotten Place: ]
*On a hot stone floor, Terezi awakens*
Terezi: ...UGH. WH4T H4PP3N3D H3R3?
Dave: *Leans down over her* You got knocked out. We took turns keeping the local time frozen until you could wake up. Glad to see you took a nice, long nap.
Terezi: *Shoves him out of the way and looks around herself*
*Surrounded by a dome of scarlet energy, maintained by Aradia, the huge Rust Gigas can be seen at a distance beyond*
Dave: You ready to finish this lard---, Terezi?
Terezi: H33H33H33H33H33!! 4LW4YS >:]
Aradia: Alright! Dr0pping the time dist0rti0n!
*As the scarlet dome fades, the Gigas begins moving again*
*The trio prepare to continue combat*
