Some years later, rail transportation had proved its worth in Italy and elsewhere in Europe. It was now time to bring a railway to the Kalzov Valley. But before that could happen, I had to face and defeat a clever foe, a much stronger magic user than I and a deadlier fighter, who moreover was filled with a burning cause! So how did I survive to share the tale? I will tell you.
To heighten the suspense, in this story I view myself from outside, in the third person.
