  • The group heads to Pylos Gamma, crossing the Pylos River once more. They arrive at Pylos Gamma, and find that there is a small army protecting it. Syne suggests they head in using the same method they escaped from Pylos Beta, using the ore carts. They sneak into the mine through the tunnels.

  • Inside, they find the mine strangely empty. The group heads up to the main control room, and find Hyde and Dantalian just leaving, along with Kydran, the creature ultimately behind Pylos.

  • Dell is taken aback by Kydran; he thought he was the only member of his race on the continent. Kydran has a number of things to say to the group:

    • He has Cade right here. Hyde steps out from the control room with a knife to Cade's throat. Kydran advises them not to try anything rash, and explains that, although Cade made a wonderful speech against Pylos, the terrorists have allowed Pylos to amass quite an army. Pylos crushed the Korran forces and ransacked the town.

    • Rheya is a spy for Pylos. (*Rheya is actually in the party of her own accord, to work against Pylos, but nobody except herself knows that) Rheya heads over to Kydran, taking the safe option.

    • Kydran no longer needs the mines. He doesn't go into details, but he couldn't care less if Gamma is destroyed.

    • The mine is empty because Kydran wants it to be destroyed. One more bombing, and the citizens of every major city on the continent will allow him to almost declare martial law over them. He didn't actually expect the party to get through his defenses, so he has rigged the station himself. It should detonate in about ten minutes (cue countdown).

  • Kydran flees with Rheya, leaving the Hyde and Dantalian to take care of them. Cade manages to break free from Hyde and join the fight. The four manage to subdue the two Pylos leaders, and get away before the mine blows up.
