We knew that the source of the Evil King's power was a powerful ring. So the plan was to sneak into his throne room, cut it off, then Zimin would shove his flaming sword up the King's backside.
The sneaking in worked. But when we got into the throne room, we were a little put off to find the Evil King had rings through most of his body parts.
We tried cutting a few off, but he just laughed at us. Growing impatient, Zimin made good on his part of the plan.
Turns out the ring was his actual ring.
