UP: Japanese Shards
'Apparently the Evil Mages are attempting an evil experiment.'
We received information that the Evil Mages are trying to resurrect Venessa who attempted to invade the cities.
According to Renfry the ranger, 'tis said that there is a magic square which will begin to change its color in Dungeon Destard. If it is allowed to complete this color transformation, Venessa will be resurrected.'
The adventurers who heard and heeded this warning quickly headed to the dungeon in order to prevent the square's transition. However they met strong resistance from the Evil Mages, as well as from brigands and many dragons. It was difficult just to reach the place where the Evil Mages were holding the ritual of resurrection.
Although it cost many lives, the adventurers finally reached the depths of the dungeon. However they were too late, the magic square had changed its color, and Venessa had returned! Her skin shone with a pale light as that from a stalactite.
She muttered as a warning to the adventurers
'The time for our revenge grows near!'
Then she vanished.
