The Castle of the Ancients
Script typed up by: Gryz
BATTLE 28 - COLOSSUS BATTLE
Nova:
At last, Max! The Castle of the Ancients. The end is near, for good or ill!
Colossus:
None shall pass Colossus, the eternal sentinel! Leave now!
Nova:
Colossus! I've heard of it in legends! Max! They're attacking!
battle ends
Colossus:
Fools...Dark Dragon...will come...to destroy you....
Colossus explodes
Nova:
You've destroyed Colossus! But where is Darksol?
Nova:
Use the staircase, Max. Darksol must be up there!
BATTLE 29 - DARKSOL
Darksol:
Dark Dragon! Awake from your long sleep! The time has come for you to reclaim this land!
Darksol:
Awaken, Dark Dragon! Something is wrong....
Darksol:
Max! Blast! You have meddled for the last time! Kill them, my servants!
Nova:
Max! You must stop Darksol before he completes his foul ceremony! Attack!
battle ends
Darksol:
Dark Dragon! With my dying breath...I summon you....Arise, Dark Dragon!
Darksol:
Yes! At last, you are awakening! I offer myself to you, Dark Dragon! Use my power to help you cast off your bonds.
Darksol:
You are free once more! Let all of Rune tremble! I die fulfilled! Cringe fools!
Darksol dies, and Dark Dragon is unsealed
BATTLE 30 - DARK DRAGON
battle ends
Dark Dragon:
Nooooo! These puny creatures cannot defeat the Lord of Darkness!
Dark Dragon:
Never! I will not be banished again! The Powers of Darkness will sustain me!
Nova:
Dark Dragon still lives! Perhaps we cannot kill him! There must be a way....
Nova:
Max! Dark Dragon must be sealed away once again. And only you can do it!
Nova:
Use the Chaos Breaker! Drive it through Dark Dragon!
Dark Dragon:
Fools! Nothing you do can stop me! I am Dark Dragon, Darkness incarnate!
Nova:
Max! Stab him with the Chaos Breaker!
Nova:
Max! The Castle of the Ancients is sinking! Let's get out of here!
But Max cannot move!
Nova:
Max is somehow bound to the Chaos Breaker!
Nova:
Max! Break free! We won't leave without you!
Max:
I can't get free, but you won't die with me!
Mae:
Max used his Egress magic to save us, but where is Max?
Lowe:
That spell's supposed to get us all out. Why isn't Max here? Why, Nova?
Nova:
I have no answers for you. Perhaps a great hero is needed to guard the seal. Perhaps he must stand as an eternal vigil to prevent Dark Dragon's return.
Lowe:
But why did it have to be Max? Any of us would have taken his place....
Mae:
I won't believe it! Max will come back, I know it!
Mae:
Perhaps Max will still come out. Wait, look at the castle!
The Castle of the Ancients sinks
Lowe:
No! It's gone...the castle...and Max with it....
Lowe:
That's it. He didn't escape. He's gone....
Mae:
I won't believe it....
Nova:
Max has saved all of Rune. His sacrifice will be remembered forever. And now, friends, it is time for us to begin the long journey home....
Mae:
I won't believe it....
Max!
Simone:
Swallowed by the murky brine, the Castle of the Ancients was lost forevermore.
Simone:
The battle over and Rune saved, the warriors of the Shining Force returned home.
Simone:
Led by Mae, Guardiana was rebuilt and Anri inherited the throne.
Simone:
As for Max, he is believed to have perished at sea along with Dark Dragon.
Simone:
And that is the official ending. But you and I know differently, don't we?
Simone:
Somewhere, evil stirs in a land that has need of a hero.
Simone:
And I know you'll be up to the challenge, Max!
Simone:
Well, goodbye for now. I have a feeling I'll be seeing you again.
