A thick layer of fog covers the pit, through it Nomad and Dog approach a bloodied, shadowy reptilian mass, they realize they have won this trial. A clicking sound echoes throughout the jungle and Dog’s ears perk up: he takes off heading towards a tunnel in the pit, giving Nomad no choice but to follow him...

Dog is able to communicate with them and learns that they were the original inhabitants of this island and are hunted by The Divine for sport. The Lisko and their new allies make their way to The Emerald Lagoon- as legend states that their ancient birthplace lies on the other side. They suddenly notice The Divine zooming towards them in small fishing boats. The Lisko cleric yells a cryptic chant which causes the Lagoon to part in two, separating them from their enemy. As they approach the volcano, a spear is tossed at the cleric and the Lagoon folds inward, decimating the Lisko tribe. Nomad and Dog swim to shore, climb atop the volcano and inscribe a message about the truths of this island for those that come after.
