Some battlefield this is. The gravel is scorching, and the lava burns like wildfire! Once again, nature makes us little men seem so insignificant and powerless... I need to see those merchants and my friends through this, no matter what.

I may have been sleeping, but still—the book was stolen on my watch. Perhaps had I not stayed up half the night sketching designs for Chrom's new poster... Nevertheless, the time for redemption has come. Prepare to hand over that roster!
