Episode Forty: Sacrifice - Part One

Closing in on the Blackpaw Fortress, The Bronze Scales ruminate on their options and try to form a plan of attack. Meanwhile, Meli is caught defying the will of her captors, and finds herself in a tighter predicament, but also finds a friend in similar fortunes. Under cover of night, the rescue mission is put into action, but our heroes may lose as much as they recover.

Theme Song: “Returning to Camp” by Magnus Ringblom

Other Music: “Heros Hand 1” from August Wilhelmsson
