After obtaining the copper key, Parzival figures out that the first gate is located on the planet Middletown. Once there, he goes to a copy of Halliday's parents house where he has to complete the game Dungeons of Daggorath to make the first gate appear.

As Parzival obtains the jade key, sixers enter Frobozz's atmosphere. They spot Parzival and start shooting at him as he runs to his aircraft.
Every avatar across the Oasis gather at Castle Anorak to help take down the sixers and get Aech, Art3mis, Parzival, and Shoto to the third gate.
As Art3mis. Aech, and Parzival open the third gate and are about to step through, they suddenly die. Not only did they die, but everyone else in the sector did as well. This was caused by the catalyst being set off by the sixers.
