Trying to fix the cogwheel for the clock, Krech asked Ahriman for help. Ahriman responded with "Despite my bringing you here, you must complete this task on your own. Due to infernal agreements, I cannot exercise power here."

Fristu then explored the rest of spells, discovering mending, and in doing so fixed the cogwheel. Once it was replaced, the wheel started turning again, the blue energy sphere collapsed, and the party blacked out, awakening on the floating ship on the Purple Planet. Krech recalls their real name: Ködel. The others recall that they were all sent on this task by their gods and patrons, even the thieves and warriors.
