A swarm of Origami cranes defeated, but at the cost of being stranded in the snowy wastes, the boy-soul powered bikes in ruins. The party takes cover in a cave, finding a hole down into the expanses of the void. Two large statues locked in combat, a book is found, and some wilting bodies, filled with spores, come back and attack the party. After a brief but close fight, the party succeeds and manages to leave the cave.
The town of Drintill nearby finds them, and the barkeep mentions the strangeness of the weather, not to mention the origami enemies. He reveals a subway of tunnels the characters can use to stay out of the storm.
