• CHAPTER II •
Cooking & Betrayals
♦ When you finish giving your report, go find Ezarel/Valkyon/Nevra in the Dining hall.
Once your report is over, go to the dining hall to eat with one of the boys.
You leave the library and land on Chrome who doesn’t want to talk to you.
In the dining hall, you talk with the boy of your choice about your paralysis of the sea.
You start to get hungry and go to the pantry to make a meal.
♦ Go back to the dining hall.
→ Go to the Pantry.
→ Find the ingredients in the pantry, then go to the kitchen to prepare your meal.
→ Find minced meat.
→ Find potatoes.
In the pantry, the shelves are being looked after by guards and Jamon authorizes you to take certain things.
You then go into the dining hall to make a meal for Ezarel.
But you run into the Head Chef of the Gard of El.
He yells at you and doesn’t believe in your culinary abilities for a second, that guy!
You end up finding meat and potatoes and start to make baked potatoes.
♦ Bring a piece of the dish to Karuto and the others...
You had a good meal and now it’s time to share!
You go looking for Karuto, Miiko and Jamon to let them taste your culinary delight.
You find out that Jamon doesn’t eat meat, despite his name...
Karuto doesn’t like what you’re selling.
You find Miiko in the Crystal Room, thinking that she spends her entire life there, and offer her your baked potato.
She devours it and loves it!
♦ Take some time for yourself and go walk around the gardens.
After that grueling cooking session, you allow yourself a break and take some time for yourself.
Stroll through the gardens, you can cross paths with Valkyon, Nevra or Ezarel.
You also come across Ykhar who tells you that Chrome was blamed and is suspended from his duties following the mission in the Jade Region.
♦ Go see Miiko to explain about Chrome.
You decide that the decision to inflict the blame on Chrome is unfair and Miiko must be reasoned with.
You go to the Crystal Room.
But she does not intend to change her mind, after all who are you to give her lessons?!
She nevertheless challenges you to make him eat some mysterious yellow grains,
a necessary condition for a possible revision of the sanction against Chrome.
♦ Bring the popcorn to Miiko and... Fingers crossed!
→ Find some yellow grains.
→ Prepare the seasoning, then make the popcorn.
Once in the pantry, you realize that the famous yellow grains are nothing but corn.
So you then decide to go ahead and make popcorn.
You choose the seasoning and come back to the Crystal Room to show what you’ve prepared to Miiko.
Although she would have preferred a salty dish,
she appreciates your effort and agrees to think about changing her mind.
♦ Go back to your room since you have nothing to do.
Rather proud of yourself, you go back to your room to relax.
After some nostalgic thoughts about your family and your world,
you fall asleep quickly.
But you are awakened in the middle of the night by a strange noise.
You can see through the window the masked man you have already seen before.
You decide to follow him.
♦ Find the masked man.
On your way, you can cross paths with Leiftan, who’s off to bed, Eweleïn out for a night-time harvest, and Ezarel.
You finally reach the Hundred Years Cherry Tree and find the masked man.
He tells you that the guard lied to you and that there is a way,
thanks to the portals, to go back to your world.
♦ Even if it’s late, go to the Hall of the Doors to talk to Miiko.
Stunned, upset, scandalized by the masked man, you decide to confront Miiko even at three o'clock in the morning...
But once you’re in front of her room, you change your mind
and think that it may be wiser to talk to her the next day when you’ve calmed down.
♦ Go to the Crystal Room.
The next day you go to the Crystal Room to denounce the lies the Guard has been telling you.
You learn that there are indeed portals that allow you passage from
Eldarya to your world and that the members of the Guard use them in particular to stock up on supplies.
But it is very difficult and expensive to open them, which is why they cannot spoil their resources to send you back to where you come from.
You accept their point of view and Miiko allows you to inquire more about the portals,
when all of a sudden Ykhar bursts into the Crystal Room and announces that Mery has disappeared...
