Artimus T. Cook, of the Crackers, in the Woods of Hationstare, as well as, Latos, the elder of the Scats in the land of Hyden, each help others place belonging high into the trees of their regions, hoping that it will be much harder for the Rockmites to reach them.
Nelty and Kelso continue to help older Artogs place belongings in their homes within the city of Artonia.
As M,S&L await an answer from the Heatseeker, Mavenwood prepares for battle.
