Here they meet skeptical help by island folk who warn them about the Ochimo the spirit warrior. At every step they are warned to beware or leave. They decide to meet the Ochimo head on in confrontation, only to be beat by the town's scribe who is planning on selling them out. The plan backfires on the scribe and instead it is the scribe who is disintegrated to a pile of dust an inhaled by the Ochimo. Our brave adventurers manage to defeat the Ochimo at great cost only to learn that there are 3 more spirit warriors found on the island.
