Mako speaks with Bear via some magical elixir placed in his stew via Bang you.
The protagonists speak further to Granny concerning the happenings of Sang Woo and Hiro in the area before their deaths (and questions are raised as to the fact if they died in the manner and at the time the stories tell them to have).
Equipped with food and information the group travel into the mountains to seek out the Hidden Temple of Emma-O.
They encounter strange troves of food and supplies, marked by symbols Sang Woo once used.
They encounter a strange Vulture creature who claims to watch and protect the mountains for Emma-O.
They further encounter an ancient creature from the tales of Founder Dong, Sassy Snow Leopard. Who steals some of their freshly caught food.
As they near the peak that the Hidden Temple supposedly is located they encounter a vast monument of floating octohedrons emblazoned with ancient elemental symbols, floating in perfect unison above a worked floor inside a caldera. The caldera has also been worked with tools of some fashion to have either steps leading out, or concentric stone seats (akin to an amphitheatre).
They find a grave nearby, with a weather worn and partially mummified body leaning over it. a slab nearby marks the grave as that of the hero Ling and it’s inscription implies that the body atop it is that of the hero Arung.
