Synopsis
Centuries earlier the Hammer of Otzberg came into being, wielded by a giant bronze colossus and directed by the mysterious Watcher, to stop the northern Mongol hordes threatening democratic Europe. Today, the Colossus stands unused and motionless, but the urge of the locals to be free has not ceased, and one Sven Huber longs for that freedom. The Heap saves him from harm and escorts him to von Emmelman's former home, dresses him in his flier's tunic to make his escape to freedom possible, but it is the Colossus that settles accounts.
