Ahmet, Maximilian, and Lukas are traveling to a market in Constantinople when Lukas abruptly disappears. After an investigation, Ahmet and Maximilian find a blind gnome who says Lukas is being questioned. Later, the gnome says Lukas is in danger and offers his staff to Ahmet and Maximilian. Upon grasping the staff, the two -- and the gnome -- are transported to the ethereal plane, where they encounter a glowing wolf. Ahmet slays the wolf. However, the gnome claims being attacked by the wolf would have returned them to their own plane. Eventually the gnome returns the three to their own time. Ahmet seems to think he was in some kind of Christian Purgatory, and is shaken by the idea that he will spend eternity in such a boring place.
