Before the Battle
Syntesis:
There's the switching point.
Grantack:
Near the switch point, a military unit is almost certain to show up. If the Synbios army arrives, there most certainly will be a fight.
Medion:
........!!
Uryudo:
Those people there are refugees. To the border patrol, they are nothing more than targets!
Grantack:
Over there is the Republic General, Varlant. It also seems as if someone is about to show up in that area over there.
Campbell:
Perhaps the Imperial troops have finally arrived? It looks like a very complete unit. If Synbios arrives, it will certainly be a great challenge for him.
Grantack:
The lower class citizens are the ones that the Empire does want to defect, yet they are rejected by both Republic and Empire. If the military finds them, they will be attacked.
Syntesis:
No one can hear us from here, and we can't hear them either. Let's move in a little closer.
Synbios:
General Varlant, you are over-reacting.
Border Patrol Guard:
We now must put you away Synbios!
Dantares:
What do those who defect mean to you? They don't backstab anyone! Why not let them go? This is a worthless treatment of civilians that we will not permit.
Benetram:
Varlant, I'm disappointed with you. We are trying to bring these people into Aspinia. Aren't you violating the whole reason we formed our own country?
Varlant:
Well, well. The Synbios army has appeared... what are you going to do? You want to cut off my support or something?
If Synbios said YES in Scenario 1
Synbios:
To prevent civilians from being destroyed by the army, yes.
If Synbios said NO in Scenario 1
Synbios:
No, but the issue of new Republic citizens should not be involved in combat. We can cooperate. Let us help.
Varlant:
Shut up you snot-nosed whelp! The army is required to keep the peace of the nation. It should be able to have control without the consent of the people to keep everyone safe.
Grace:
This sort of management can lead to more problems, General Varlant. Please, let us return to the Republic.
Varlant:
How many people have died thanks to Imperial plots? How can you so easily return to Aspinia when the Empire is the nation responsible for destroying us? I'll sink the Empire in one blow!
Benetram:
Varlant has clearly lost his mind. No matter what we've said, there's no way to convince him. It appears as though we will be fighting two armies.
Medion:
.......
Varlant:
.......!!
Medion:
.......
Synbios:
Prince Medion! What are you doing in such a place?
Medion:
.......
Grantack:
People do not have the ability to choose where they are born, but they should have the ability to choose where they live, even if it is inconveniencing to the original territory.
Medion:
.......
Campbell:
An escaping refugee has little hope. People who stand and try to fight these refugees stand on very dangerous ground near us. The Medion army will not permit such treatment of civilians.
Medion:
.......
If Synbios said YES in Scenario 1
Synbios:
To your request Prince Medion, we will protect the refugees without failure. We will destroy the border patrol guards if they give us any trouble
If Synbios said NO in Scenario 1
Synbios:
Though it is sad that your own countrymen are subjugated... General Varlant must be stopped. Leave the refugees with the border patrol guards.
Campbell:
We will confront mad General Varlant's army. Please keep the refugees safe, but do not let them be killed.
Varlant:
Our army has already been half destroyed by Spiriel's troops. Hurry up and do your worst!
Uryudo:
This is frightening! Someone might hide behind me and then make me do the fighting!
Syntesis:
What?! Stop that, this is no time for a joke like that. You're even scaring me!
Grantack:
Since you two seem to be in such a good mood, this should be easy fighting.
Damage is dealt to Varlant's army
Varlant:
The weak Imperial dogs have broken our defense lines! Prepare to clean them up one at a time!
Varlant Mage:
I do not think we can hold them off. Please... request reinforcements from Synbios's army...
Varlant:
What? Ha! I will not be taken down like this, no matter how many men they throw at us!
Synbios:
General Varlant, the time has come. Withdraw your troops and surrender to Prince Medion. He will let you escape.
Benetram:
Exactly as Synbios said, Varlant. Withdraw your men and we can all return to Aspinia.
Varlant:
You think I want to withdraw from this foolish battle? The Varlant army will always be victorious, even down to the last soldier. My back is to the enemy. See? I don't even care if they exist or not!
Battle Ends
If all refugees were rescued in Scenario 1
Dantares:
Thanks to the help of your army, Medion, we managed to save all the refugees.
Campbell:
It is here that I want to say I'm glad the border patrol did not rampage the civilians. We did not have any un-needed civilian injuries.
If at least one refugee was killed in Scenario 1
Dantares:
Even with the help of your army, Prince Medion, it is regrettable that we were unable to save all the refugees. We must apologize.
Campbell:
It should be us who are apologizing. It is such any unnecessary death. We are ashamed of the Imperial policies.
If all the refugees were killed in Scenario 1
Dantares:
Even with the help of the Medion army, we were unable to save any of the refugees. We must apologize for being so powerless.
Campbell:
It should be us to apologize. The Imperial law of attempting to defect is punishable by death. It is a sad ruling of the people.
Benetram:
I'm sure you'll want to hear from us about the abduction of Domaric. We will try to answer as much as possible.
Grantack:
Was it really you, Benetran, who abducted the Emperor? It was rumored in the Empire, but we would like to hear it from you.
Dantares:
If we had abducted the Emperor, he would be with us right now.
Benetram:
However, it is true that a "Benetran" assisted in the abduction. There is an imposter about pretending to be me!
Medion:
.......
If Synbios said YES in Scenario 1
Synbios:
I believe the failure of the peace conference was also plotted by this imposter. The person who is impersonating King Benetran might be trying to create the war between the two nations.
Campbell:
Do you really think so? It they are they are doing a great job!
If Synbios said NO in Scenario 1
Synbios:
We cannot even understand their real intention. But the failure of the peace conference certainly seems like a possible result.
Campbell:
If the purpose is beyond that of the peace conference, what else could there be? We need to understand what the border patrol guard said at his death.
Dantares:
We know that someone of the Bulzome Sect plotted all of this. One of the high priests was playing the role of Benetran to abduct the Emperor.
Synbios:
Is there something else on your mind?
Medion:
.......
Dantares:
The chain of events was started when they attacked you at the Saraband docks, right before the abduction took place.
Campbell:
All of this was plotted by the Bulzome Sect behind the scenes.
Benetram:
Another question you will probably ask. No, we don't know where Domaric is. But when we met the four high priests who escaped after our meeting, they transported the Emperor by ship.
Grantack:
So that was the ship we saw earlier.
Medion:
.......
Grantack:
General Rogan will help us... He actually understands Prince Medion. We'd better move on... to Barrand.
Medion:
.......
Campbell:
Brave Knight Dantares of the Republic, let us share a drink or two in the future.
Moving on...
Campbell:
Wait... remember when we saw the ship? Next to that priest was a masked monk... he was carrying something on his shoulder. Did you notice it at that time?
Medion:
.......
Grantack:
True, but we do not have as many troops in our army as them. With the help of General Rogan, we should be able to rescue Domaric.
Syntesis:
We could go to Anafect village. We could borrow a ship there for sure!
Uryudo:
Anafect is on the eastern side of the continent. It faces Barrand directly.
Campbell:
It is the fastest way there. Let's go, Prince Medion.
The Emperor Domaric was abducted at the peace conference in the floating city of Saraband. The abduction, caused by an imposter of the Republican King, Benetran, caused the Empire and Republic to enter another grueling war. It also began a great journey for the third prince of the Empire, Medion.

The Medion army found themselves at a stalemate in their quest to find the Emperor Domaric, Medion's father. Medion and his forces met Synbios again at a railway switchpoint. Synbios told Medion that they did not abduct the Emperor. Medion and Synbios exchanged valuable information.

Now, Medion's forces are preparing to obtain the aid of Imperial General Rogan to mount an expedition to rescue Emperor Domaric. They must travel to the nearby village of Anafect, to borrow a ship, and land on the opposite shore, in Barrand. This was the start of Prince Medion's great journey.
