The hero arrives at the palace hoping to get an audience with Queen Voluptua. There have been rumors in Gleeba that the queen received some sort of fruit from a traveler. This sounds very much like another fygg has been found. However, the hero is denied entry to the royal baths where the queen is resting.

The hero overhears that the queens pet, Drak, has gone missing. The hero learns that Drak probably escaped the castle, likes shady places, and dislikes clapping noises from the workers in the palace. The hero then locates Drak in a tree outside the palace.

Having rescued Drak, the hero meets the queen. The queen fires the servant who lost Drak and denies the hero his/her request for the fygg. The fygg is missing until it is found by servants near where Drak was hiding. The queen decides to slice it up and put it in her bath. She leaves for the baths and the hero is again denied entry.

The hero learns from a man on the roof that the fountain on the roof leads directly to the bath chamber. The hero jumps in and makes it to the baths just in time to see Drak eating the sliced up fygg. Drak transforms into a hideous monster and grabs the queen before jumping down a well into The Plumbed Depths. The hero follows them into the dungeon.
