It's the day of the Tempest tournament at Gamma Tech Stadium and Tari, Masa, Theo and Lamar arrive at their gaming booth. Tari is apprehensive, but Lamar and Masa remind her this is their best chance. The group logs in, but as Tari activates her powers, she briefly finds herself in a void seeing Lucinia.
In the game, the competition is full swing as Tari recovers from her blackout. The group begins to gather some spells, using Lamar's forcefield power and Masa's kunai to knock out some competitors and claim their gear. Suddenly, a top-tier team arrives, forcing the group on the defensive while Lamar uses a teleport scroll to get them to safety. Teleporting onto a cliff, MD-5 discusses their next move before being attacked by the team from earlier, knocking Tari off the cliff.
Tari recovers in a small ruined building when the enemy team attacks her. Before they can finish her off, the rest of the group arrives to back her up and go on the offensive.
