... the dark sorcerer Ryperon. The group freezes in terror as they recognize The King’s Hammer, notorious for his cruel and merciless tactics.
“You thought you could escape me?” he says, his voice laced with malice. “You underestimate my power.” Just as he moves to strike them down, an enormous terrifying beast emerges from the crumbled wall.
Krizt is stunned by a shot from the armored men and collapses.
The roaring beast unleashes its rage and fury. Rez and the crate man fire their pistols at the beast, but it shrugs off their attacks. Ryperon laughs.
Just when it seems like all hope is lost, the crate man holsters his blaster. He raises his hands, and directs a surge of mystic energy at the beast, and suddenly, it turns on Ryperon.
The sorcerer tries to defend himself, but the beast pounces on him with all its might, and the group takes advantage of the distraction to escape.
They burst through the exit and into the open air. They take a moment to catch their breath before realizing that Krizt is missing. They turn around and see her being dragged away by the white-armored men.
“You’ll need my help if you want to rescue your friend,” says the crate man, now imbued with a mysterious power.
