Plot

Main article: Dance in the Skies/Script

Sigurd and his companions take refuge in Silesse under the protection of Queen Rahna. During this time, Quan, Ethlyn, and Finn depart to raise an army in Leonster and properly help Sigurd. However, the king's brothers Maios and Daccar launch a rebellion to seize control of Silesse with the support of Andorey and the traitorous Grannvale dukes. Sigurd battles his way through Silesse and puts down the rebellion. In the aftermath, he learns that Lombard and his forces have conquered Lubeck Castle to the east and are preparing to invade Silesse. In order to prevent them from getting caught up in his conflict with Lombard, Sigurd decides to face the traitors head on.
