Story[edit]

Past[edit]

Burnmont is a volcano reputed to be the home of the Father of the Flame and is a sacred site to the people of Emberdale. When the party first arrives to the island of Emberdale, they see a vision of Burnmont erupting. When the party first arrives to the island from the Shrine of Mysteries, the volcano is off-limits to any visitors until the time of the Flaming Festival. At the village, the party discusses the vision they saw with the Gaffer, the village chief of Emberdale. He assures them that Burnmont is in no danger of erupting and thinks they were simply spooked by the sight of the mountain. The Gaffer then invites the party to spend the night in the village in order to participate in the Flaming Festival the next day. The following morning, there is a commotion in the village as the fortune teller Palmela urges the people to heed her warnings that Burnmont will erupt at the end of the Return of Fire ritual. The Gaffer becomes disgruntled with her for spreading panic and fear in the villagers, declaring that the festival will go on as planned that night.

Palmela takes notice of the party, recognizing that they are adventurers, and invites them to her shop to discuss the developments. She tells them that they have to save Emberdale from destruction and asks them to investigate Burnmont since they will be able to enter once the Festival begins. That night, after the townspeople make their pilgrimage to Burnmont, the group is given their own flames to cast into the crater of the volcano. There, they run into Palmela and her assistant, Dora, and tells them they must venture into the depths of Burnmont to find out the cause of the disturbance. She is able to heal the party's wounds or save their progress if needed, but they are running on limited time to complete their task. If the player takes too long to reach the depths of Burnmont and all the townspeople finish throwing their flames into the crater, the volcano will erupt as predicted and the party will be forced to restart back at the village inn.

At the depths of the volcano, the trio encounters the Glowering Inferno and a huge black flame. The fierce-looking monster mocks the people of Emberdale for worshiping a deity that he believes doesn't exist and even hold a festival in its honor. It states that it was entrusted with the flame by its demonic master and as soon as the Return of Fire ritual ends, magma will overflow and destroy the island and its inhabitants. The monster takes notice of the group and challenges them to a battle, but is eventually defeated. However, its death doesn't cause the black flame to disappear and it rises to the crater where the ritual is being performed. The party makes their way back up and rejoins with Palmela, explaining to her what happened in the volcano's depths. The fortune teller states that unless they figure out some method to get rid of the black flame, Emberdale will surely be destroyed. The Gaffer, having seen the error of his ways, implores Palmela to look into the future and find a way out of their predicament.

She heals the party's wounds and has a vision of a grubby man in a grubby house holding a vial of liquid, as well as the Hero. Palmela asks him if he knows who it is. The hero's uncle, Pike, happens to match her description perfectly. The bottle that Pike is holding is the Wholly holy water, which will cause the black flame to disappear and save Emberdale. If the party doesn't already have the bottle with them, they must journey back to Estard in the present and retrieve it from Pike. With the holy water in their possession, they sprinkle it on the black flame and extinguish it. Palmela then states that with the intervention of the hero and his friends, the vision she had of Emberdale's doom won't come true anymore. The Gaffer then thanks the party and declares the end of the festival and celebrates the young adventurers as the saviors of their village.
