Horace is sent to Nihon-Ja to train there. When the Emperor Nihon-Ja tries to treat civilians the same way as soldiers, he breaks a law and his men betray him. Horace goes with the Emperor and they seek the hidden fortress. They recruit the woodcutters and train them to soldiers. Will, Halt, Cassandra, and Alyss arrive to help. Cassandra and Alyss go on a raft and row to the other side of the lake where their allies are. Meanwhile, a battle goes on on the other side of the lake. The two armies clash together and fight for what is right.
