When the group reaches the outskirts of the city, Ratchet takes a look behind him and notices the vision he had from the mask of Warforged lined up along the walls and in chains. Ku’rahnk asks them what they plan to do next and says that the city is lost for now but there is another base of operations that he can lead them too. They deiced to have Ku’rahnk lead them to the other location. When they get there and explain their situation to the Giants they are once again told to be held in a cell. The group speaks up once more and tries to prove how they are truly from the future and would like to help in fighting the Quori. The Giants take out a device that emanates with powerful magic that almost borderlines unstable but allows everyone to communicate with each other without the need of someone acting as translator. While it takes a large amount of effort to gain their trust, the Giants eventually believe them. The group tells them about another who came to this time with them and how they need to see him to gain information on what his goals are and why he seems to be working for the Quori. The Giants give them information on the enemy’s stronghold and how to get there but they are reluctant to send any further help beyond that.
During their conference, they gain information about the Key and the Keyblades that they hold. The Giants sound confident that the Key they have could never break apart despite the group knowing that they hold its broken fragments. The Giants do seem worried, though as they claim that they no longer have the Key as it has been stolen and that if there attack on the Quori stronghold should fail they would use one of their most powerful weapons, the Moonbreaker, to completely eradicate the Quori forces and keep them from invading Eberron. They don’t tell them much of the Moonbreaker, even though the group already knows its power from the vision they had with the spell book and evidence of a missing moon in the sky but claim they will using it in a few days regardless if they return with the keyblade. Before they leave, Ratchet asks one final question regarding his creators. A Giants who had self modified his own self is the one to speak up and answer them. He tells him of their plan when they created the Warforged and how the Quori where the ones to first realize this from the Giants dreams and create the Warforged first. Ratchet then asks the nature of what happens to his race as they die, stating that other races spirits go to the plane Dolurrh at death. The Giant claims that Warforged souls are created artificially and upon death can be recycled into another warforged so that they do not have to consistently make new souls for more warforged.
As the group gear up to leave, Ratchet is given an upgrade to better fight against the threat and the everyone else are given individual hovering vehicles to allow them to quickly get to the stronghold before the Moonbreaker is used. Ku’rahnk stays behind and the group leaves into the forest. As they travel along though their vehicles suddenly stop working and they are flung from their ride and ambushed by a group of enemy Warforged. Ashkhad attempts to persuade them claiming that the others are prisoners to be presented to their leader. Upon the mentioning of the name Zoratash as their master, the group changes plans and defeats the Warforged. They start of confused that Zoratash exists during this time but quickly realize that they are in too much danger if it gets the Key and quicken their pace to retrieve the Key.
