Along the Chaleen Plains, the last members of the former Imperial army force slaves to fortify the area in preparation for the arrival of the Fillians. However, they are not the warriors of Axeman Bone, but Kram, Hiro-Kala and Old Sam who slay the guards and inform the slaves that they have come to free them.

Ignoring the warnings of the people who freed them, and rise up in arms to attack the other soldiers.
