We're now in Murania, the country that destroyed Elfaria after Shiral's coup. Here's the map of the area courtesy of this nice walkthrough site.
Ell is still trying to draw our party onwards, and she's now working with Zora as well. She tells him to make sure the hero parties don't die, but other than that his role in her schemes is unclear. Pyne is also confirmed as Rishia's son.

Along the way, we actually meet Shiral at Murania. According to Zora, it seems that he stole the Ra Staff 15 years ago and used the power of the Ra Springs. This has eventually resulted in him losing control over it (Zora is surprised he lasted this long). Zora kills the weakened Shiral, but this doesn't stop the crisis the world is facing -- Shiral's use of the Ra Springs has caused earthquakes and other problems, and the world itself will soon be destroyed.
Shiral also confirms that we are the same group of heroes that fought him 15 years ago.
