This is where Lillet?s adventure takes place and where she will have to use all of her cunning and magical prowess to overcome the obstacles that stand between her and the saviour of her entire school.
To get to the bottom of just what happened on that fateful day Lillet has a willing army of elves and fairy units to battle her way to the answers to this mystery. With enough experience Lillet has the ability to summon demons and dragons just like the ultimate sorcerer and head of the Wizardry School, Gammel Dore.
