Domaric:
How foolish you are, my poor Arrawnt, to have sold your soul to that bunch of heretics!
Arrawnt:
As always, you are too firm, my dear father. You still don?t want to understand my feelings. Let me explain it to you, if Mageron takes your succession and becomes the next Emperor, the Empire of Destonia would stay unchanged.
Domaric:
And you think you could do better? You betrayed me and joined with those heretic monks to compromise the Republic. You?re just a mean man who has organized his own father?s abduction...
Garvin:
Don?t be so hard with your son, Domaric. He worked very hard to prepare your abduction. You should be very proud of him, your highness.
Domaric:
So? you have been working on that for a long time? Just to realize your crazy ambitions? But I see Arrawnt was not the only one behind that. Saraband Governor-general, Garvin was also part of the plot? You don?t realize what you are doing. You think all the cards are in your hands now and that you have a lot of allies to rely on. But soon you will understand the price you would have to pay for your over-ambition. Hmm? it seems you?re beginning to understand, aren?t you?
Arrawnt:
What? what are you talking about?!
Domaric:
It?s a good idea to have a lot of allies but if you always have to choose them wisely if you want to stay the leader. Or else you?ll be nothing but a puppet? And that?s exactly what you are in this story! You?re just a doll! You?re controlled by a puppeteer who makes you dance as he wishes!
Arrawnt:
You think I am a doll? Well, I don?t care at all. To realize my plan I needed the most powerful allies I can find. Power... here?s the key to everything! All the countries are ruled with it. That?s why I wanted you to nominate me as the next Emperor. Only a strong leader can rule the Empire. Hmm... but maybe, you?ll understand my opinion when you see that, even the person you trusted the most, is working for me now, my dear father...
Domaric:
Hmm? Fidelity... I appointed you as my son?s advisor to make him learnt what are the roles of an Emperor. I just can?t believe it has ended up in a failure...
Fidelity:
The expectations of an Emperor you were talking about are nothing but... weaknesses... And I?m sure you know it too...
Garvin:
Children and parents have the same blood in their veins. So children are like their parents... Arrawnt is nothing but your clone. He is just waiting for "accidental" deaths to take the throne. Like you in the past, he just wants to rule the entire country. Doesn?t it remind you of something? You seem to have forgotten you were the fourth prince of the royal family and yet you managed to become the new Emperor. Wasn?t it strange? Arrawnt just hopes for the same thing to happen to him.
Arrawnt:
One of your sons will succeed you. Those are Mageron, Medion and myself. I can become the new Emperor if only two persons die. If you die, only one person would remain on my way.
IN THE COURTYARD
Campbell:
We?ll show our power to Saraband! Since the Medion army is finally reunited, now we can confront governor general Garvin! Let?s go!
Grantack:
Now, we?re sure Emperor Domaric is inside! We finally understand their plot! However, the palace is well protected... This is a crucial battle! If we win we would be able to rescue the Emperor, Prince Medion! I?m sure you can make it!
The party enters the Governor-General's Palace
Domaric:
Finally! Medion?s army!
Arrawnt:
You! You knew there were coming?! So you were trying to buy time before their arrival by talking to me?!
Domaric:
Hmm... well...
Garvin:
It?s time to finish him, Arrawnt! Even in his situation, he tried to fool us a last time. And he almost succeeded!
Arrawnt:
I?m really sorry my dear father... your last tentative failed as well. Nothing can save you anymore my poor father... Your life is mine now... Prepare to die Emperor Domaric!
Fidelity:
Wait, Arrawnt! I can?t let you kill your own father yourself. Such a job is not suited for a prince. Please, leave it to me.
Garvin:
You? The former Emperor?s right hand? You really want to finish him, Fidelity?
Fidelity:
You still don?t believe in me? Please, let me do it! I want to kill him with my own hands!
Garvin:
Mwa, ha, ha! This will be really interesting! Let the show begin!
Domaric:
Fidelity... I trusted you... I can?t believe I was wrong...
Fidelity:
Hmm...(speaking in a low voice) Go near the wall just over there. Hurry up!
Arrawnt:
Fidelity? What are you doing?!
Fidelity:
Fidelity elite troops! Defense formation!
Arrawnt:
You... you bastard!!! You betrayed me!
Fidelity:
I have never betrayed anybody. All my loyalty has always belonged to the Emperor! I will never allow anybody to harm him!
Arrawnt:
So what about his abduction?! Don?t tell me he knew about it?!
Fidelity:
Yes, he did. Emperor Domaric sent me to you as a spy.
Garvin:
I can?t believe it! Domaric used our own plan! He knew his abduction would start a war with the Republic!
Arrawnt:
This... this can?t be true! Tell me it?s not true father! That?s why you told me a lot of times that I would never become the next Emperor?! You wanted to make me angry so I would enact my plan!
Garvin:
We underestimated Emperor Domaric... He used us from the very beginning, prince!
Arrawnt:
You?ve finally shown your true face, father! We need help, Garvin!
Garvin:
Oh, Bulzome! Please come to our aid! Dessheren! Dessheren!
Dessheren Appears
Dessheren:
Did you call me, Governor-general Garvin?
Garvin:
Have you recovered from the wounds you took in the temple of Elbesem?
Dessheren:
Basanda has already recovered and left for the observatory. But I?ve not fully recovered. Did you call me because of Domaric?
Garvin:
Yes but not only...
Arrawnt:
Medion?s army is here...
Dessheren:
Medion?s army?! But, you told me you?d taken care of them!
Garvin:
I?m sorry... It was a failure. Medion managed to free all the others and now they are all here!
Dessheren:
And so you want to borrow the power of the Bulzome Sect... All right, leave them to me! I am a bit weak for now but I think I can defeat Medion?s army! Fear the power of Dessheren!
Yasha Appears
Arrawnt:
Is it you, Yasha? Your arrival is as surprising as usual...
Yasha:
General Fafhard... He was defeated by Synbios' army...
Garvin:
What?! Are you sure of this, Yasha?
Arrawnt:
I can?t believe the powerful and brave General Fafhard has been defeated by Conrad?s son...
Yasha:
Our last hope is Priest Fiale. I have ordered Fafhard?s son, Braff, to start our plan sooner than expected.
Garvin:
So, Synbios has finally reached Flagard. And what about Palsis?
Yasha:
Basanda was heading for him... but now she seems confused since she doubts that Braff can be relied on after what happened. I don?t think we can count on her for now...
Arrawnt:
His father has been killed... he probably doesn?t know what he will do now... do we really need his help?
Garvin:
Braff has a big role to play in our final battle. He will have to prevent Aspia from receiving reinforcements.
Yasha:
As you asked, the Sea Gate was captured. They will not be able to use it anymore.
Dessheren:
All right, go Prince Arrawnt. I will hold off Medion?s army as much as possible while you go and invade Aspia.
Garvin:
Yes I agree. You?ll cover us while we escape, Dessheren. But don?t forget about our main objective, the invasion of Aspia!
Dessheren:
We have almost won the war... act wisely for now!
Arrawnt:
Don?t worry, I?ll take care of everything. We wouldn?t have had all those troubles if only Medion hadn?t helped that Synbios from the Republic so many times.
Domaric:
What?! He helped Conrad?s son?!
Arrawnt:
Your last son doesn?t have the same ambitions as you. He is a big pain in the ass for all of us.
Domaric:
I can?t believe it... Medion...
Arrawnt:
You were really impressed by him but it seems you had made a mistake...
Domaric:
It seems Arrawnt is right...
Fidelity:
Emperor Domaric, Garvin was plotting against you from the very beginning too... Taking the capital of Aspia has been the dream of a lot of people for many years...
Dessheren:
While you were talking, they've made it to the Sea Gate. Come on, Medion! If you want to save Emperor Domaric, you have no choice but defeat me. And that's not likely to happen!
After the Battle
Campbell:
We have defeated a very powerful enemy... the Priestess Dessheren herself! What a wonderful victory, prince!
Dessheren:
You! ...if only I had fully recovered... you would have been no match for me! Wh... what?s happening to me? I can?t die here like this...
Voice:
I will not let you to die now.
Dessheren:
Th... that?s the voice of... Yasha? Did you come to... help me?
Grantack:
Look, it?s Yasha! We can?t let him go with Dessheren!
Yasha:
I?ll see you again Prince Medion.
Yasha leaves with Dessheren
Domaric:
We must go after Garvin!
Grantack:
Why do want to go after him, Emperor Domaric?
Domaric:
The time of union and annexation of the land we had lost has finally come. I have been waiting for it for many years. I, Emperor Domaric, will not allow Garvin to realize this dream instead of me.
Campbell:
But... don?t you know about the invasion of the capital of Destonia by the Bulzome Sect? The situation is really critical there...
Grantack:
The Walcuray is going to attack it. The castle of Destonia may be in big trouble right now. Bresby came to us, asking for help to protect the capital.
Domaric:
What do you expect from me?
Campbell:
I think you should return to Destonia with Fidelity as soon as possible. Don?t you agree?
Domaric:
I?m not going to return there, Campbell. You?ve already lent some troops to attend Bresby, haven?t you? So, there is no reason for me to go there. Now, we have a splendid chance to take back the lands of the Republic. I?m not going to let this chance go! Fidelity is making an army from the soldiers who betrayed Arrawnt. It will be the Emperor guards army. Medion, prepare your army for the march as quickly as possible as well.
Begin choice options
YES
Domaric:
I?m really surprised by your answer. You?re said to be on friendly terms with Conrad?s son and yet, you don?t oppose the invasion of Aspia at all...
NO
Domaric:
Medion, I know it may sound difficult for you because of your good relationship with Conrad?s son. But, you will not prevent me from taking back Aspia.
Fidelity:
I understand your feelings but you?ll have to control them. I, Fidelity, will help the Emperor in his task. And you have to help him too!
End choice options
Honesty enters
Domaric:
Who is that soldier?
Honesty:
I am Honesty from Rogan?s army. Since Rogan is confined in the Executor hold, I will be talking for him until we find a way to free him.
Campbell:
Honesty is General Rogan?s right hand. She can be trusted.
Domaric:
Hmm... Rogan?s right hand. Well, you seem to be a great officer...
Honesty:
Yes, I learned a lot under General Rogan. I?m ready to die for the safety of our army. I'm relived to see that you, our great Emperor, are all right.
Fidelity:
Please, tell us the important things General Rogan wants to inform us about.
Honesty:
The Sea Gate was attacked and taken by Arrawnt's army. We won't be able to catch up to it. Also, the Executor's mooring was cut and it will sink soon...that's why I came here as quick as I could. General Rogan is still stuck inside the Executor's hold.
Fidelity:
General Rogan is confined in the hold? Without the key, there?s no way to save him...
Honesty:
If only, it was me who had been trapped instead of him...
Domaric:
Those are common things in times of war... Rogan was a good general... We?ll miss him a lot... So Destonia is invaded by the Bulzome Sect? The castle and the capital probably suffered some damages... This situation really bothers me a lot. It?s the biggest crisis the capital has ever had to face... I must contact Mageron immediately. He?s probably in the castle now. Could you please bring him a letter from me, Honesty?
Honesty:
Of course, your highness. It will be a pleasure for me to help you.
Domaric:
Thank you. Give me a while to write it. By the way, who did you send to protect Destonia?
Grantack:
Some powerful allies including a great one from Elbesem, Gracia the Innovator.
Domaric:
...Gracia went there? Did he have the staff of Besem with him?
Begin choice options
YES
Domaric:
So he has the staff of Besem... and he went to Destonia? hmm...
NO
Domaric:
Don?t lie to me! I?m sure he had it. If Gracia wants to fight against Bulzome, the staff of Besem is a must have!
End choice options
Fidelity:
But... Emperor...
Domaric:
Hmm... those events are very interesting...
Campbell:
The Emperor is acting very strangely... Why all those questions about Gracia and the staff of Besem?
Grantack:
He seems a bit confused...
Campbell:
Well, it seems we will have to escort the Emperor to the Republican capital. But to reach it, we will have to go through Headland and Swampland, since we can?t use the ship anymore. We will have to go north to reach the north mountain range. While the Emperor takes care of his business, we should prepare ourselves for the departure.
Honesty:
I have to wait here for the letter Emperor Domaric is writing. I wonder what kind of letter it is, though...
Fidelity:
Emperor Domaric is writing a letter for Prince Mageron. Meanwhile, you should prepare your army for the departure, Prince Medion.
