The Rangers find that the city has been overrun with Imperious’ forces, led by Necrolai. Music is banned from the world, Rootcore has been destroyed and the Rangers have lost their magic. When Koragg finds them in the forest, he tells them what has happened that the only way to reverse Jenji’s wish is to see the Tribunal of Magic, which they can reach by riding Fire Heart (raised by Koragg in this alternate universe). In this other dimension, the Rangers wander through the desert until they ultimately find a door leading to the Tribunal of Magic. The Tribunal members ask why the Rangers have come, and after a short conversation, the Tribunal decides to decline the Rangers request to reverse the wish, sending them back to Briarwood, powerless. Deciding that they now have no hope, the Rangers are quickly captured by Necrolai’s forces as the Tribunal sees the Rangers’ surrender as proof they’ve made the right decision.
