While hunting, two People of the Land notice a strange phenomenon over the forest. Meanwhile. with Akihabara now bustling with activity, Naotsugu and Akatsuki take Tohya and Minori under their wing for training. As Shiroe also starts experimenting with his scribe subclass, Maryelle starts craving to visit the beach. This gives Shiroe the idea to hold a summer training camp for new players.
Soon after, emissaries of the League of Freedom Cities Eastal arrive at Akihabara to invite the Round Table Alliance to a meeting and a ball. Having already anticipated this, Shiroe informs Krusty that it would be a prime opportunity to learn more about the People of the Land, and along with Michitaka, Henrietta, Akatsuki and Takayama Misa, he sets off the following month. At the same time, the training camp also sets off to Choushi where they end up having fun at the beach. Maryelle and Minori also speak to People of the Land as part of Shiroe's suggestion that they learn as much as they can. Elsewhere, the Round Table representatives arrive at The Ancient Palace of Eternal Ice and meet with Duke Serjiad Corwen during the ball. As Krusty and Serjiad begin a discussion, Shiroe notes that both the Adventurers and the People of the Land are wary of the other.
