Along with this, following several harrowing events, the Black Swans form a cohort to deal with various local threats. Thus, begins the investigations into Tearmain. With no stone left unturned, G, Tripper, Winey, Mi, Jess and Eren seek out Lord Ramson to report on grizzly incidents discovered around Larret Hamlet. They receive his suggestion to travel west overland to the un-named river to reach the royal city of Mount Oryn.
On their journey westward, the Black Swans discover an enemy Tearmain army. As the Black Swans receive redemption for G, this leads to her becoming known and praised for her ability and efforts as a strong leader and a reliable person, yet she finds discomfort in this.

These events lead to the Black Swans having to make choices: such as remain loyal to the Dominnion of Kannoral, convert to this upstart new god, Tearmain, or even switch loyalty to General Selanad – or worse.
In this there leads a conclusion of the one adventure may lead to the next adventure, but they need to survive even one.
