Xenoblade Chronicles 2
Following the events that happened on the Ancient Ship, the party crashes in Gormott's lower level. After Rex wakes up with only Pyra around, he decides to search for the others. He quickly finds a dying Gramps, who fades away into the ether, before revealing that he had instead reverted to a larval state. Him and Rex argue before they advance further into the Gormotti forest.
While making their way up, they find Nia and Dromarch, struggling to deal with a Wormeater Brog. The two Drivers dispatch the beast and the party makes camp for the night. Later that night, Gramps and Pyra meet together, with the former asking about the latter's intentions. Pyra expresses her goals of going to Elysium and stopping Jin and Malos before promising Gramps that she will take care of Rex. When the day comes, and with Nia's help, they finally get a bearing as to their whereabouts, near the belly of the Titan Gormott, before deciding to make their way to the nearest town.
As the party finally make their way in Torigoth, Gormott's biggest city, they find wanted posters for the members of Torna (including a poorly drawn version of Nia, much to her dismay). Moreover, they arrive in the middle of the Ardainian army's Driver recruitment. After watching a new Blade being born to a new Driver, they make their way to one of Torigoth's back alleys.
There, they are intercepted by Ardainian soldiers, headed by captain Padraig. After dispatching them with relative ease, their attempt at running away is cut short by the arrival of Brighid, the Jewel of Mor Ardain, who erects a wall of blue fames. A battle ensues, in which Nia and Dromarch are both incapacitated by the army's ether nets, restricting their use of ether. While Rex and Pyra make their last stand against Brighid, a strange projectile destroys a nearby water pipe, extinguishing Brighid's flames and allowing them both to run away, though they reluctantly leave Nia and Dromarch behind.
During the escape, they meet a Nopon, who invites them into his home. Tora reveals that he is the one who destroyed the water pipe, before introducing himself as Tora. While the party gets acquainted with Tora's place, Rex makes his intent to rescue Nia known, before they decide to eat. At the same time, captain Padraig makes his report to Dughall, Gormott's consul. They briefly argue before another soldier arrive to announce that the Special Inquisitor, Mòrag, has arrived from Mor Ardain. While the party eats, Dughall went to meet with the Special Inquisitor, who asks to speak with Nia. While she is interrogated, Nia let Rex and Pyra's name slip, to Mòrag's delight.
The party makes a round around Gormott, discovering that Nia is to be executed soon in the process. After reconvening at Tora's House, they come up with a plan to rescue Nia, by infiltrating the Titan battleship she is kept in. Before they do so, Tora asks them to help him finish his artificial Blade. Once they have hunted the few remaining parts, Tora activates his new artificial Blade, using a thunderstorm's lightning, settling on naming her Poppi.
The party successfully infiltrates the battleship and they are able to free Dromarch, then Nia. While making their escape, they are intercepted by Dughall and his Blade Dolmes in the ship's Hangar. After dealing with the consul, they escape the battleship into Torigoth Relay Base where Mòrag was waiting for them. Dromarch recognizes Mòrag as the Flamebringer, the strongest Driver in the Empire. Mòrag expresses her intent to stop the Aegis before she clashes with the party. Unable to measure up with Mòrag in a direct confrontation, the party make a diversion, managing to get out of the relay base. By combining their efforts, they are able to destroy a nearby water tower, stopping Mòrag in her tracks due to Brighid's weakness to water, allowing them to escape successfully.
They run midway through the Titan's upper level before stopping. Nia and Dromarch thank them for their helped before beginning to split up. Rex tries to convince her to stay with them with the story of Elysium, and is barely able to do so. They make camp at Traveler's Resting Tree where they mend their wounds.
