It lasted three days, below ship a landscape of savannah passed, great rivers and lakes. Heroes observed huge herds of animals venturing, tribes of humans and lizardmen. Finally a verdant jungle below appeared. Ren and Jarod observed strange flying lizards, while below heroes spotted several hamlets, sacrificial places and tails of some huge animals. After not especially quiet night, the moved up an dormant volcano, that loomed before them, appearing similarly to one, the saw in vision. "Sky Mill" slowly climbed up and finally reached lip of crater. It passed it without troubles, but real danger awaited ahead.

With a help of summoned air elemental, it was saved before crash and slowly set down on trees.

Soon five guards appeared and attacked. fight was fierce and apes were defeated, but more and more were approaching, so heroes withdraw.

 

Quick debate erupted and heroes decided to spy in a city. Jarod and Ren set out and quickly climbed walls. City was magically lit, full of houses, taverns and paved roads. Outermost ring was inhabited by commoners, middle by noble apes, who were pursuing topics of philosophy, art, science. In the middle of city there was a pagoda serving as throne room of Ape-King Ur, who was incarnation of Maggog's final soulpiece. Jarod was able to spy on him and he learned, he knew of characters and decided to hunt them. Apes turned out to be good and aware guardsmen and quickly found both Ren and Jarod. They were able to escape, but not without difficulties.

 

Heroes gathered in forest to discuss options. At first the wanted to attack the city, but realised they could not be successful. Later wanted to lure ape-king into a trap but that would mean fighting in natural territory of apes, so they decided to turn the tables.
