“Opal Lagoon” tells the tale of a young girl named Irrika in a small village by the water’s edge. Irrika chases the memory of her departed father, desperate to one day fish the same waters he did. Amidst those waters however, a thick fog billows. What are the mysterious faeries that seem to beckon to her from these mists? Do they truly carry her wishes to her father on the other side?
In the Gemsong Saga side-story “Last Flight of the Solaris”, the events of the infamous sinking of the Solaris come to light. Lost in the abyss, reports say that its captain and crew escaped unscathed save for two. Branded as traitors, these two were lost along with the ship as it plummeted below the clouds. Rumors from the pirate segment however, seem to disagree.
