Ryner and Ferris are on a journey to find artifacts relating to the Legendary Hero, but have difficulty actually finding them as they are attacked by soldiers from a warring nation.
At the same time, Sion Astal has returned to lead his kingdom in conquering the world. That night, he prepares to attend a party.
Ryner and Ferris find themselves at an ancient tomb and break through the magically-sealed door by cutting it in half. As they continue their quest, a little girl accidentally triggers a trap that floods the tomb. The girl proclaims herself a Captain in the Roland Army, but Ryner and Ferris don't believe her. However, she does reveal that she was a childhood friend of Ryner, just as the temple starts to explode from a giant laser-firing magical statue that appears to have no weaknesses.
The party escapes the temple and runs, having nothing to fight the artifact monster with. Ferris reveals a pendant she found in the tomb, and the pendant dissolves into thin air before calling down an even bigger laser that slams down onto the monster. However, the monster just gets angry and continues chasing the party.
Another flashback reveals that Ryner and Sion are somehow connected through their pasts at a school together, where Sion pledged to become a king in order to end the pointless fighting.
