Synopsis:
Using information gained by Long John Silver, Nathaniel J. Flint prepares a trap for the criminal Xaphira on Benno Treasure Maps with the help of Vael Owleyes. the trap works and Xaphira is overwhelm by the group and captured.

The group doesn’t sleep much but their trip was ready and they meet with Viikker Travelmarch outside the city walls of Ierendi City. " I won’t be able to travel today with you, all of you, mounts and creatures will expend my Magical Corridor magic. I will meet you tomorrow at the city of Waping Piao. As there are no corridors directly into that city, my corridor will open a few miles from the city. You will use this map to find the city and I will meet you there tomorrow. The Celestial Territories are the most dangerous wilderness of all Ochalea and Waping Piao is their mayor and only stone-walled city of the province. Just a travelling warning. " He does his gestures and recites his spell openning the magical corridor like a big tunnel into the unknown.

They were convinced by Troyus Machistes to honor Oedilus Cabanis’s dead and deliver the Letter from Caesonia Scipio Machiste to Troyus Machiste. Behind they leave the tropical jungles of Ierendi Island, and the caravan exit the corridor in a different landscape of hills and grasslands. As the corridor closes behind them they see a big fire on the grassland, a few holes on the ground and hear strange sounds from behind the hills. Their two prisoners Xaphira and Benedetto Difusallo closely watched.

Gargantuan creatures sprout from holes on the ground and a larger one broke the ground in a big expllosion. Gargantuan Monstrous Centipedes and a Purple Worm were attacking the caravan.

The group fought back and Xaphira tried to use the commotion to cast an illusion spell and escape, but Axetor was watching her and noticed the trick alerting the group and avoiding the escape.

Two armies came from behind the hills, both are armeis of the Thyatian Empire. One is an army of centaurs under the command of Centurion Okelucios Nalister and the other is composed of minotaurs under the command of Centurion Merkosasso. They are both mad at the interruption provoked by the caravan on their wargames. So they bring them to a camp were Commander Kanaga Shigetsuna is mader than them and arrest everyone. He sends the Band of the Wolf without allowing them to speak to the city of Waping Piao to be incarcelated by someone called Captain Pos Lio.

Because he isn’t a Gaijin and knows the proper ettiquete, Yoshirou Nakajima is allowed to speak before the captain of the City Guard. He explains the purpose of their trip and frees them. " I will keep your papers until we are able to clear everything up with Commander Shigetsuna. You are allowed to find an inn, and do what yoy want but don’t leave the city. "

Pos Lio tells Yoshirou that he knows his surname, and he knows his family. He tells him to go visit his mother who is right now a guest of the Province Governor and is staying in a mansion inside the Waping Piao Government Halls near by. When Yoshirou goes to see Kimiko Takahashi she receives him: " Is time you came back to honor your brother’s death. "
