One day, after a troubling visit from the troll Annabelle Wishmonger, Piblo leaves his Cave and sets out in search of three damp Quartz. A quest undertaken in the company of witches, giants and idyllic ogres.
In the search for the troll-guarded Quartz, Piblo Aricalm surprises even himself with his braveness and skill as a gardener.
During his travels, Piblo rescues a Sword, an heirloom belonging to Annabelle. But when Annabelle refuses to try fighting, their friendship is over.
However, Annabelle is wounded at the Battle of Four Arimes and the two reconcile just before Piblo engages in some serious fighting.
