CHAPTER 8 - RISE OF THE ANCIENT CASTLE
Runefaust at last! The long and perilous journey is near its end.
It is up to the Shining Force whether it ends as a triumph for Light or Darkness.
If you search a bush at the entrance
I am the ninja Hanzo. I shall join your battle. I await you at headquarters.
Man at building near entrance:
The knights have all gone away. I don't know where.
Woman near statue:
Darksol is gone! I'd feel better about it if I knew what he was up to.
Old man at a house:
You are welcome here. With Darksol gone, we are at peace once more.
Guard near headquarters:
This is the headquarters. Please make yourself at home!
Old man near headquarters:
Before Darksol came, our land was known as Protectora. We were at peace then.
Man near headquarters:
Darksol is evil! He tricked King Ramladu into terrible wars.
Man at the westernmost house:
Darksol is gone! I hope he never returns!
Woman at a house:
Welcome! At last the war is over!
Man at a house:
Mahato is waiting for you inside the castle. Please go see him.
Mahato is waiting for you inside the castle.
You've freed us from Darksol. Thank you!
Man at a house:
That castle is like a haunted house. Monsters are all over the place.
Mahato once told me a legend. Would you like to hear it?
Too bad! It's very interesting....
Runefaust and Guardiana are twin cities built to protect the Castle of the Ancients.
We've got it all. Every item you'll ever need.
Come right in. We can meet every need.
Runefaust castle guards:
No one gets trough to Runefaust Castle. Mahato's orders.
Shining Force! We no longer obey Darksol. Are you going to stop him?
That's certainly the healthy choice.
Go inside. Mahato awaits you with some information.
Guard at Mahato's castle:
Mahato is inside.
Woman at Mahato's castle:
Mahato is inside. I hope Darksol's monsters haven't hurt him!
Old man at the castle tower:
I feel a strange aura. I fear that Dark Dragon is awakening!
I am Mahato. There is no time to lose, Max. Darksol has gone to the gate! You must follow him. Go back trough town. The guards will let you trough now. King Ramladu will try to stop you, for he is Darksol's creature now! Fight well! You are the only one who can defeat Ramladu!
Runefaust castle guard 1:
Mahato said to let you trough. The castle is down this path.
Runefaust castle guard 2:
Take great care. You're our only hope to be rid of Darksol.
Darksol suddenly appears
You again, Max? How unfortunate for you!
Now I must be off to summon Dark Dragon. But don't worry. Someone is waiting for you.
King Ramladu will serve my purposes one last time, then I will have no need for him!
I must be going. Do enjoy your meeting with Ramladu. Dark Dragon arises soon!
BATTLE 26 - RUNEFAUST CASTLE
Long have I waited for this moment, Max! Prepare to meet your death.
Is that the best you can do? Well, meet my robots, weaklings!
BATTLE 27 - BATTLE AGAINST RAMLADU
I am...dying...but my mind is once more my own. Darksol was controlling me. You must stop Darksol! If he freeds Dark Dragon, all of Rune is doomed. He has gone to the gate, to summon the castle from the depths of the sea. Go!
King Ramladu dies
Max! Darksol has already entered the Castle of the Ancients. You must hurry! I found a secret passage to the gate. It is in the entry hall of this castle. Return to town and make your final preparations. Then take the passage.
You made it? You've fought through the castle? But keep going, for Darksol awaits!
Max! You have defeated King Ramladu, but a far greater task awaits. Darksol has sealed the Gate of the Ancients behind him, but there is another way....Use the Chaos Breaker at the westernmost point of the coast. There's a legend....The Chaos Breaker can raise the Castle of the Ancients out of the depths of the sea. The gate will then open.
