CHAPTER 7 - THE LOST CIVILIZATION
The Shining Force quickly headed Prompt, hoping that they had come in time.
PROMPT
Man near the shop:
Welcome to Prompt!
Merchant:
Don't ask me anything. I'm not from around here. I just arrived from Rindo.
Boken:
Is this really Prompt? The people seem a little...well, dense, don't they?
Weapons seller:
Weapons, weapons and more weapons! Step right up!
Items seller:
If anyone has what you looking for, it's me!
Man near the waterfall:
Who says thinking is boring? I think about dinner all the time!
Man near the school:
School is good, they say. But you can't prove it by me!
Nun 1:
The people here are so backward. No one wants to learn anything.
Nun 2:
Be quiet and sit down, you little beasts!
Girl:
All I need to know I learned from my cat!
Boy 1:
School! Who needs it?
Boy 2:
My brain hurts!
Man at a house 1:
Dark Dragon? Who cares? Let's talk about food!
Man at a house 2:
Shining Force? What does that taste like? Is it good to eat?
Man at the middle of Prompt 1:
Ancients? Who are they, a group of minstrels?
Man at the middle of Prompt 2:
Have they posted the lunch menu yet? I can't wait!
Man at a house 3:
Shining Path? Maybe the king knows about it.
Man at the exit:
Whoa! I can't let anyone past. King's orders!
Man at the library:
Shining Path, eh? Are you sure you want to know about that?
If NO
Man at the library:
Good, me neither.
If YES
Man at the library:
The king might know something about it. He's always reading old books.
Man outside the library:
Welcome. Visitors are always welcome.
Man outside the castle:
This is Prompt Castle. Lovely, isn't it?
PROMPT CASTLE
Man near the entrance stairs:
Welcome to Prompt Castle!
Man near odd equipment:
This castle isn't much, but it's the only one we have!
Man near the stairs leading to the king:
Go up the stairs to see king Kusuko, ruler of Prompt.
Man at the library:
Sorry, no time for idle chatter.
Kid:
Be quiet, please. Somebody's very sick in the castle.
Man near the elders:
This is grandpa's room. He's pondering something difficult. You'd better not disturb him.
Elder 1:
Run along now, youngster. I'm doing vital research here.
Elder 2:
Deep thought requires absolute silence. Please let me resume thinking.
Man near more odd equipment:
Great equipment, huh? Don't ask what it does, I have no idea!
Hen:
Cluck, cluck!
Mage:
Oh, I'm just resting. Nothing to see down here. Why don't you go upstairs?
Man at the Shining Path:
Door? What door? Oh, that door! It's nothing. Forget all about it. Run along now.
Guard watching over a wounded man:
Sorry. No visitors until he recovers from his wounds. Poor guy, whoever he is.
Prison guard:
These stairs lead to the prison. Nothing to see down there now.
King's guards:
All hail King Kusuko!
Minister:
This is King Kusuko, ruler of Prompt. Be polite or we'll throw you into prison!
King Kusuko:
What brings you to Prompt? Ancients? Dark Dragon? What is this nonsense? You're a spy, aren't you, sent by our enemies to find our weaknesses. Answer me!
If NO
King Kusuko:
You're lying! We know how to deal with spies! Guard! Toss him in prison!
If YES
King Kusuko:
I thought so. We have a place for toads like you....Guard! Toss him in prison!
PRISON
The thick bars seem unbreakable.
Boken:
Ok, now I'm really lost. Hey, Max! What's up? Don't worry, I'll let you out!
Boken opens the cell
Boken:
Max, I think I'm going to stop wandering and settle down. Maybe in Waral. See ya!
Guard 1:
King Kusuko! A message from those who left for the Tower of the Ancients!
Guard 2:
Alef and Torasu say Darksol seems unbeatable. They cannot hold out for long!
Guards:
Talk to King Kusuko.
Minister:
The king has something he wants to say to you.
King Kusuko:
You heard the report, I assume. The Tower of the Ancients is east of here. When I heard Darksol was there, I sent troops to stop him. He is trying to raise the Castle of the Ancients from beneath the sea. He must be stopped before he awakens Dark Dragon. Since my troops have failed, it's all up to you now, Max.
King Kusuko:
Rest for now, until all is ready for your journey.
Minister:
Do as the king asks. We must all wait for further reports from our troops.
Prison guard:
King Kusuko imprisoned you because he cares about us. Please forget him.
Guard watching over a wounded man:
Sssh. He's resting.
Kane:
ZZzzzzz
King Kusuko:
His name is Kane. Someone found him seriously injured. When Kane recovers his strength, you two can talk. Just be patient!
Kane:
P...Please...King Kusuko...let Max...go to...the Tower of...the Ancients....
King Kusuko:
Rest, Kane. There will be time to talk later.
Kane:
I...owe Max a great deal...please...let him go....
Kane passes out.
King Kusuko:
I give in. Max! You have my permission to enter the Tower of the Ancients!
Guard watching over Kane:
Please let us take care of Kane.
Minister:
Please save Alef and Torasu!
Kid:
I found Kane. I hope he gets better soon.
Man at the library:
The Manual of the Seal holds many secrets. The way to rouse Dark Dragon, of course. But the way to renew the seal is also contained with the manual's pages. Also, there is a robot that can be activated with the help of the manual.
Man near the elders:
Elders are waiting for you. Please listen to their words.
Elder 1:
The Ancients had amazing powers. But Dark Dragon nearly destroyed them. After a long struggle that ravaged all of Rune, Dark Dragon was defeated. The Ancients placed him in their castle and sank it beneath the sea. But what could we do against Dark Dragon if he got loose now?
Elder 2:
Our records say that the Ancients used flying machines to cross the sea in minutes!
Man near more odd equipment:
Can you save Alef and Torasu?
Man near the Shining Path:
The Shining Path begins here and leads to
Metapha. We need more time to repair it. Come back later, please.
PROMPT
If you talk to him before talking to Kane
Man at the entrance:
It's by the King's order. No one can leave here!
If you talk to him later
Man at the entrance:
You're going out? Enjoy yourself.
Man near the castle:
The castle used to stand on level ground. But years passed and it sank down.
Man near the library:
Step right in. Visitors are always welcome here.
Man at the library:
These books were all written by the Ancients. Are you interested in them?
If NO
Man at the library:
Ignorance is bliss, eh?
If YES
Man at the library:
The Shining Path is described in detail. Too much detail. We're having trouble with it.
Man at a house 1:
Metapha is said to be an amazing place. I hope to visit it someday.
Man at a house 2:
It's all up to you and the Shining Force!
Man at a house 3:
Could Dark Dragon be the Legacy the Ancients left us? I think so.
If you check a small poster at one of the houses
Words are carved into the wall-"I am Musashi the Samurai. I have come to join the fight against evil."
"I await at headquarters."
Man at the middle of Prompt 1:
We are all the descendants of the Ancients. We must prevent Dark Dragon's return!
Man at the middle of Prompt 2:
Keep after Darksol, Max. He must not be allowed to succeed!
Man near the waterfall:
So much to know...so many questions to answer.
Man near the school:
Perhaps we should start a college here in Prompt.
Nun 1:
These people are highly advanced. It's amazing!
Nun 2:
What's going on? I feel like they're teaching me!
Girl:
I'm so bored. The classes are too easy.
Boy 1:
Teacher! That calculation is wrong! The correct answer is 34,765,492!
Boy 2:
I really don't have time for this. I should be helping with the Shining Path.
Merchant:
This is weird! Everyone's acting totally different! Why?
Man near the shop:
Welcome to Prompt! I need to find something better to do with my life!
BATTLE 22 - TO THE TOWER OF THE ANCIENTS
Nova:
The Tower of the Ancients is to the east. Hurry, while there's still time!
Battle ends
Nova:
Now, on to the Tower of the Ancients!
BATTLE 23 - TOWER OF THE ANCIENTS
Demon Master:
Stop them! Lord Darksol must not be disturbed!
Nova:
We must get inside the tower! Smash trough these monsters quickly, Max!
battle ends
Demon Master:
Lord Darksol...I have failed...they're coming...into the tower....
Nova:
Get in there, quickly!
Alef:
Keep going...Darksol...top of tower....hurry....
Torasu:
We can't go on...you must stop Darksol....
Alef:
Don't...worry about us...get Darksol before...it's too late....
Torasu:
Maybe you are...strong enough...to succeed where we...failed....
Darksol:
Too late, Max!
Darksol:
It has begun! The Castle of the Ancients is rising from the depths.
Soon I will awaken Dark Dragon and he will rule the world!
Darksol:
And now, the time to end your meddling is here!
Darksol:
I call upon the Darkness to crush this....No! It cannot be!
Darksol:
Kane!
Kane:
Yes, Darksol. And this time I will stop you!
Darksol:
Fool! I am now many times mightier than when we last met. Your doom is here!
Kane:
Arrrggghhh!
Darksol:
I have no more time to waste with you two. Dark Dragon awaits!
Darksol dissapears
Kane:
I'm dying...Max...go to... Metapha...hurry!
Kane dies!
Nova:
Max, there is no time for sorrow. Alef and Torasu are with us. On to Metapha!
