The Road to Mistral
"Shadow of Israphel" Part 3: I DEMAND YOUR FINEST BACON! is the third episode of Season 3. It was uploaded January 29, 2011. The video description reads: Lysander gives the heroes a tour of Mistral City, and they meet a range of interesting new characters!
Our heroes say farewell to Old Peculier as they leave him to recuperate in Skylord Lysander's home. To pass the time while they wait for Peculier to recover, Lysander takes the heroes on a tour of Mistral City. Before they leave, Xephos dumps all of his spare items into Lysander's bedside cabinet, not realizing what he was doing at the time. He apologized to Lysander for rooting through his personal belongings, to which Honeydew jokingly asked if there was a "triple-ended, ribbed nobbler" amongst them. Xephos picks up on the fact that Lysander's carpets are purple and pink, suggesting that he may be of the homosexual orientation, before dismissing what he just said. Lysander didn't honour Xephos' inquiries with a reply.
They first stop at the family grill and local tea house, where they meet the owner of the establishment - Granny Bacon. Honeydew immediately yells "Old woman, I demand your finest bacon!" Granny Bacon takes a liking to Honeydew and the moment begins escalates a bit, prompting Lysander and Xephos to leave and give their friend some privacy, only leaving the mentally scarring noises and phrases coming from within the house to paint the rather unpleasant picture of what was happening.
Lysander and Xephos continue the tour without Honeydew. Lysander shows Xephos the floating platforms overhead, which gave Mistral a great tactical advantage, making it one of the leading powers in Minecraftia during times of unrest. Whilst inspecting the platforms, Xephos notices a silver-haired wizard atop one of them, by the name of Fumblemore. Once Honeydew catches up, the tour continues and they head off. They are directed toward an adult entertainment establishment, with stripper poles and seats inside. Honeydew claims that he'd need a few more hours to "re-charge" after his encounter with Granny Bacon.
After being directed to a court our heroes decide to play a round of tennis. The game doesn't go awfully well, with neither of the heroes actually managing to hit the tennis balls. After the game concludes, they find an opium hut, within they encounter a second Skylord, called Jasper. At this point in the adventure, Jasper appears to be rather cranky, with a bad attitude and a short temper. Jasper wishes to be left to his business, but Honeydew keeps trying to get into the opium hut. Leading to Honeydew becoming aggravated and yelling "WHERE IS DRUGS!?"
Honeydew spots a creeper behind a fence leading to an abandoned mine. He seems to bond well with the creeper, as they both jumped up and down on either side of the fence, with Honeydew singing "Jump around! Jump around!" The next part of the tour leads them to the Duke Smithy, presumably owned by Mr. Duke, Daisy's father, who has left, possibly to look for his daughter, a lumber mill, a cemetery, and a church. They come across the town message board which has advertisements for kittens for sale, volunteer work and "Naughty Pixel Fun", as well as some public information messages. They stop at the cemetery to read the gravemarkers, many of which are of a silly nature, added in by the Shadow of Israphel map creators. After they're done in the cemetery, Skylord Lysander begins leading them toward the Sky Tower.

Behind the ScenesEdit
- Many of the tombstones in the cemetery are inscribed with jokes and references added by the Shadow of Israphel team when they were creating the map. Notable ones include:
- "DAVE! YOGNAUT || He had the balls."
- "Biritoff || Drowned in the Pool of Life"
- "Michael Barrymore's career"
- "-404- Name Not Found"
- And a series of tombstones that appear to reference the first series:
- "Reverend John || Missing, presumed undead."
- "Israphel || We do not speak of him."
- "Xephos || "Goodbye, friend"
- "Honeydew || "AAAAAAAAARGH"
- The final two tombstones are reserved for the heroes themselves, possibly placed there by Israphel as an insult towards them. The epitaphs inscribed on the tombstones are quotes from Simon and Lewis themselves. "Goodbye, friend" poking fun at Lewis' tendency to refer to Simon simply as "friend" and "AAAAAAAAARGH" referring back to Lewis and Simon's Cataclysm Beta videos, in which the intro was Simon yelling wildly.
