The Bastion (Siege)

Say what you will about Zulf, but he’s a man of his word. His countrymen don’t much care for pleasantries though. Too bad for that.
Zulf showed them the way here. And here they came…to take revenge. They got inside the Bastion and shut the door. Kid’s got to go in through the back.
I should have known. Should have seen this coming. Felt it in my bones. Tried to stop it.
To make matters worse, seems the Ura took the girl. Even if I tried, I wouldn’t have been able to prevent that. Unfortunately…They broke in…and then they started…digging their holes. Something wrong sprung out of those holes. And it’s eating away at this place.

We tried to stop them. But we needed help.
Our little Squirt, he gets hurt.
Our Anklegator hatchling, she goes down deep.
Our refurbished mechanical bull, it starts falling apart.
Our baby Pecker, he stops flying.

Kid’s hurting bad, and no help’s in sight.
The Ura think they got him…They’re wrong. He gets back up, starts fighting back, harder than ever before.

Somehow, some way, he sends those Ura packing. Problem is…it didn’t matter. Zulf’s plan worked.

We find each other as the dust settles. And then I tell him why the Ura came: To get us back…for the Calamity. It was Caelondia’s master plan to wipe the Ura out. But part of that plan backfired, didn’t it. If only Zulf knew the whole story.
The Shards can put this disease in remission. But there’s only one cure. We need to finish what we started. Now all we need is one last Shard. Kid hands me the harp guitar. What were we to think. They must have got her. Taken her back to her rightful home.

The Ura swooped down from the east. At least now we know the way.
