Halloween in July
Journey to Cloud City!
Pre-requisite: Character Level 11+
Location: Travel Map » Sky Bridge OR
Location: Battleon » Warlic's Shop » Mastercraft Sets » Fujin Set!
Tales going back 3000 years say that somewhere above these stark granite mountains there rests a place called Soriranashi-Sonikan, the Cloud City. Someone survived the journey across the Bridge of the Sky long ago and returned to tell of it - but no one has returned from across the bridge since then.
Just what will you find in Soriranashi-Sonikan?
«The scene shifts to the left, showing the Bridge to the Sky, followed by moving upwards, showing a gleam of light, then to the right, where Soriranashi-Sonikan is. You stand at the base of the bridge, and a Wind Spirit descends.»
Wind Spirit: HALT! Mortals may not enter the Temple of the Winds!
«You»: Hmm... "may not" or "cannot"? I mean, is there some sort of magic force field up that would only allow immortals through?
Wind Spirit: Well... no.
«You»: And just how do you know I'm mortal? I haven't died yet. At least, not permanently.
Wind Spirit: Well... I...
«You»: So if I wanted to take a stroll down that impossibly-long bridge to plunder - I mean view - your sacred relics, there's really nothing to stop me, right?
Wind Spirit: Just me, and the master of this realm, and a few other surprises along the way!

Full Heal after battles #2 and #4
Fuuryoku: I have watched your progress with great interest, little one. You have made it very far, further than any have before.
Fuuryoku: I am sorry to say that not only can you NOT have my treasures, but you must also not be allowed the opportunity to go back where you came from.
Fuuryoku: So, you see, my beautiful Cloud City will be your final resting place. My lieutenant will show you to your demise.
Fuuryoku: In the language of the wind spirits, his name means "The razor of winter's first bite".
Fuuryoku: Your futile human tongue is unable to pronounce its true depth, and unworthy to even try. You may call him "Frank".
«You»: If that's the way it has to be, well, at least I'll have a nice view in the afterlife!
Fight!Fuuryoku: You are a mighty warrior indeed, to strike down Frank.
«You»: Eh, it's not really that big of a deal. That's, like, the third time I've beaten him today. You really need to train your minions better.
Fuuryoku: ... I see. Well then, little one. Perhaps you and your ego should meet another one of my servants.
Fight!Fuuryoku: The defense of the four winds falls to me, then. And with them the symbols of a world long lost.
Fuuryoku: If you would claim and control their power, you must defeat me, the master of this city!
«You»: You're a bigger windbag than that thing on your back. Get ready to rumble, Chubby McJumble!«Fujin's Relics shop opens. Once you leave the shop:»
