Synopsis
The curse of Gog and Magog is unleashed upon Albracca. But, while everyone was expecting two mouldering old armies to emerge, they end up with two enormous monsters made up of the bones of the ancient warriors. Fire proves useful in bringing them down, though. In other news, Brunello and Satyricus rescue Valda from ravishment by Haakon, and Arak resists the temptations of Angelica. Finally, when all the dust has settled, Johannes permits all the strangers to leave the city before he returns Albracca to its rightful place outside time. In a later era, he will become known as Prester John.
