Where could the fire crystal be? Such a powerful magical artifact must have some effect on the environment. Lord of Lava decides to consult his trusty friend, the Spirit of Lava.
"My most trustworthy friend, tell me, is there anywhere in Nocturnus that the flow of lava is irregular or perhaps 'disturbed'." - Lord of Lava
"Ah, yesssss. There is a place deep deep down below The Kelra Labyrinths. A place where the flow of lava is most peculiar. Demon's Pillar as we call it..." - the Spirit of Lava
As the Spirit vanishes in the air, a vision of Demon's Pillar is left in front of Lord of Lava.
The Kelra Labyrinths is a large and complex multilayer maze. To find a place deep down inside would take a large number of manpower. Quickly Lord of Lava summons a sizable group of his elite worriers, Aba, Bata, Gala... and sends them out to find the mythical fire crystal.
Aba is the first one to depart. He...
(*** Fast forward - due to lack of time and general laziness ***)
Zata finally found the fabled Demon's Pillar after months inside the Labyrinths feeding on lizards and the likes. He is equipped with the "Infinity Chain", which can extend infinitely to help him find his way around the Labyrinths.
Zata quickly spots the Fire Crystal. It sits on top of the pillar.
Zata takes out his "Infinity Chain" and climbs his way up the pillar.
"GROAAAAAAAAAAR!" Suddenly he heard an earth-shaking roar! A gigantic lava worm breaks out of one of the other path leading to the pillar
It is truly humongous.
Of course, Zata comes prepared. He swiftly grabs the fire crystal and...
takes out the "Axe of Eternal Ice", which he "borrowed" from some Mitgardia "friend" ...
The magical Axe summons large ice bolts and temporarily pins down the lava worm
In the meantime, Zata escapes from the dungeon and returns the fire crystal to the Lord of Lava. And the fire crystal is once again found in the land of Historia.

The main tower is loosely based on Heroes of Might and Magic 6's Inferno castle. The background maze is inspired by the abyss scene from the Japanese Anime movie Children Who Chase Lost Voices from Deep Below.
