The elves invade the Troll caverns. After rescuing a trio of starving wolves to aid, they follow Petalwing toward the Castle to find their way blocked by a working mine--and the enslaved Holt Trolls. White Rayek floats Ekuar and Leetah across the roof the others jump into the mine and entreat Picknose and the others to join as a rebellion and they win free to the other side, but not before Vaya is lost, assumed dead.

But she's not dead. Guttlekraw questions her, threatening torture and dismemberment, but she steals a sword and attacks him to be killed by his guard. Her body discarded, TwoSpear claims her shell as a visual aid.

Meantime the Holt Trolls and the elves proceed through the mountain toward the Castle while Two-Edge guides them toward his treasure room.
