The Forces of Chaos advance deeper into the installation, cleverly bypassing some traps. They nimbly watch as Gerecht falls screaming into a pit of gears, only to be dragged out by Propheria’s newly prehensile hair. They battle a lycanthropic druid in a trash room, search out tomes of hidden lore in the library, and discover all twelve gears. The central gear unlocks the slave spirit— a wolf named Fenris, feared in ancient times, prisoner here for untold millennium. At the last turn of the massive gear and the last strike of an unseen chime, Gerecht disappears and guardians of the clock walk through portals to clean up the mess. On the surface above, Gerecht sees Fenris, a gargantuan wolf with an eight-pointed star on his forehead. The spirit— chained to the very rock of the plateau— asks for the release of death, and receives it. As Gerecht drives his blade into the Wolf of Storms, the storm takes revenge, shooting a full bolt of lightning into the half-orc’s skull. Below, Rogenbogen, A, Propheria, and Sehk’met engage in an all out, to the death, dubstep, time-traveling melee with the elven chronophants. Eventually the stern guardians are slain as Gerecht staggers in— the Chaos Star burnt into his forehead— and collapses.
After a brief respite, the victorious team loads up their spoils and heads back to Vratsa. From there, they meet up with the caravan and continue on the road to Vigil.
