Our heroes have ruined the machine and the relations with the Empire. The latter happened even without their participation. You'd think it cannot get worse. But the steamer has broken and got stuck in the ground, and an ominous pirate ship is looming above our heroes' heads. The pirates demand meeting their captain insistently, and it is quite hard to say no. What does everyone want from our main character? Why do the villains need the crystals? Will they finally announce their evil plan?
