Saraband Central District
Middle aged man by the trading center:
Have you seen the trading center?
Begin choice options
No
Middle aged man by the trading center:
Usually, the area is packed, but recently the merchants stopped coming. Negotiation to levy Barrand and peace talks... Merchants are jumping the gun and assume war's going to break out.
Yes
Middle aged man by the trading center:
I have been a merchant for ages, but I can't recall the last time the trading center was so empty. If the city was between ports, I'd understand... But we're docked! This conference is quite bothersome.
End choice options
Old Man:
Nobody knows what Governor Garvin is thinking, but the people of Saraband support the Republican cause.
Young Man:
The Governor prohibited the sales of weapons during the peace conference, so the weapons business is hurting pretty badly. I went to the weapons store to look around and it's dead. The whole sales floor was empty.
Woman with baby:
Since King Benetram is such a freat strategist, the Empire is taking every precaution. Some soldiers are acting quite aggressively, saying they should make the first move. You'd better watch out for yourself too.
Girl:
Have you been to the tools shop?
Begin choice options
No
Girl:
You'll be disappointed if you go. Usually they have a fine selection, but now they are very limited in their merchandise. I needed a new set of sheets too...
Yes
Girl:
They're not well stocked at all. Takes all the fun out of shopping. Once the peace conference is over, they'll have so much stock, it'll be like a whole new store.
End choice options
Old Woman:
Whenever young Imperial soldiers are off duty, they just loaf in the bar from morning to night. Slackers! They need to get a life! On the other hand, they're easy going and fun loving people.
Man:
The King of the Assembly, Benetram, is a great strategist and general. No way he'll give up Barrand so easily. He must have some secret plan... Whatever it is, I'm sure that it must be a good one...
Middle aged man by the port:
Arrrgggh, I don't know what I'm going to do! Because of the conference, our sales have been dismal. If all this stuff isn't resolved soon, all my food and goods for sale will rot! Sob!! My poor food...
Left Saraband guard:
Until the peace conference is all finished, we cannot allow anyone to pass through here unless they have a special permit. Aren't you from the Republic? I really would suggest you think again...
Right Saraband guard:
Believe me, I understand. You want to go out to Balsamo, kick butt and take names... If the Republic really wants to liberate Barrand, talking won't do any good. You'll have to find another way.
Centaur by the laundry (Arthur):
I'm not a coward! I just got sick of making a living by killing people all the time. I'm making ends meet by doing laundry, and I find that it's not a bad alternative. Do you agree?
Begin choice options
No
Centaur by the laundry (Arthur):
HAH! Knowing that you're still a young pup, it is understandable that you say so. However, I wonder if you can still say so after fighting soldiers and monsters for years. Someday, I'd like your answer again.
Yes
Centaur by the laundry (Arthur):
Thanks for agreeing! However, you haven't had nearly enough battle experience to truly understand... I look forward to your answer after many more battles. Tell me again the next time we meet.

Saraband guard by the gate to eastern district:
If you wish to return to the Republican camp, please go through the Business District. The route here is closed.
Saraband guard by the gate to western district:
Just ahead is the Western Residential district of Saraband. Are you heading there?
Begin choice options
No
Saraband guard by the gate to western district:
Regardless, use of this pathway is limited to the few permitted by the district of the Governor General.
Yes
Saraband guard by the gate to western district:
The Western Residential District is designated as the Imperial camp. Since you're Republicans, I recommend that you don't enter. Things could get ugly if you cross a zealous knight or bump into an ill-tempered noble.
End choice options
Saraband guard by the gate to government district:
This is the Government District. Do you have any business here?
Begin choice options
No
Saraband guard by the gate to government district:
The general public may not enter the Government District. If you have no business here... Please move along.
Yes
Saraband guard by the gate to government district:
The peace conference is in session at this very moment. Ministers from both countries have dropped by to see Governor Garvin, but he's much too busy. So, take any ideas or opinions to the conference itself...
End choice options
Trading Center
Left standing middle aged man:
I thought I'd do some business in Balsamo, but it turned out not to be such a good place. The mood and number of troops from both countries, waiting to see where the conference leads, can trigger a battle there anytime.
Right standing middle aged man:
How could this conference develop into a war? Please tell me that such a thing isn't happening... A war would not only send us into poverty, funding for internal security would thin out, and bandits would become more active.
Moving middle aged man:
Did you hear about what's going on in Balsamo? The town was filled with masked monks... I wonder why...?
Young Woman:
This is the trading post of Saraband. All merchants must check in here to import or export goods from Saraband.
Bookshelf:
Opportunity arrives when war breaks out! Massive amounts of goods will be consumed, which is good for merchants.
Tool Shop
Tool seller:
(Selling)

I'm very sorry. The Mayor has placed a moratorium on all the purchasing.
Weapon Shop
Weapon seller:
When will the peace conference end? I hear that it's going to drag on for a while. It's getting on my nerves!
Church
Priest:
Since there is the absolute god, Elbesem, why are other religious sect still allowed to exist? Back when religion influenced politics, I admit that their existence prevented some religious extremes, but...
Man:
Please make my wish come true. Please make my business successful, and make me rich! Amen. Elbesem is a guardian deity, you say? Oh yes, yes, I know that. However, he is said to be omnipotent and all-knowing, so I figured he would grant my wish for prosperity. That's what I believe. Yes indeed...
Middle-aged man:
Everyone is praying for peace, but... wartime is when we merchants prosper. Which to pray for... hmmm.
Girl:
Money, money, money... That's all everyone talks about. I guess it's inevitable, since Saraband is based on trading, but... We seem to be rich, but have nothing else. I feel quite empty.
Woman:
Young man... It is a good thing to pray for peace, but... Sometimes peace doesn't come simply by praying for it. In such times, we must ask our soldiers to fight for us so that they can win peace.
Tavern
Left Centaur:
Our job is to report to Railhead about deals that are made at the trading center. However, since there have been no deals taking place, we've been hanging around, killing time all day.
Right Centaur:
We have to be in shape to do our jobs, and when we just sit around and drink, that's bad for the legs. So we decided to run to Balsamo, and there we saw a lot of strange masked monks. Supposedly, they're praying for the conference's success.
Bartender:
Do you find that many women are attracted to you?
Begin choice options
No
Bartender:
What? How strange... How can a good looking, upstanding guy like you not be popular? You're handsome, have a good job... The girls must be too shy to make advances toward you... That's what I think, anyway.
Yes
Bartender:
I thought so... They say looks aren't the first thing they look for in a man, but most girls don't even want to get to know me... Maybe it's because I hang around here all day... I still envy a popular guy like you.
End choice options
Waitress:
Hello, stranger! Well well... I didn't know the Republic had any cuties like you in service... You're just my type... Why don't you come back here later tonight... If you do... wink ... You won't regret it.
Left middle-aged man:
We are constantly working... So, it's actually nice to relax like this to drink and mingle.
Right middle-aged man:
Rumor has it, the Republic's planning to start a riot in Saraband since the conference isn't going too well... People expect that plans like that are in the works, since King Benetram is a great strategist, but a war may...
Solitary soldier:
Oh... You're from the Republic. You've got guts to talk to an Imperial soldier. I think it's stupid to start fighting in a bar. Prince Mageron is a very good person. If we do our job, our personal lives are our own.
Left soldier:
My master, Prince Arrawnt, is tense and nervous all the time... and don't get me started on his attendant, General Crewart... He's got personality problems! I wish I could transfer to Prince Medion's army.
Right soldier:
The attendant of Prince Mageron is the beautiful general, Spiriel. Everyone in the Empire admires her in some way. As well as her beauty, her ability to fight and commanding skills are great. All the Imperial generals respect her.
Girl:
Oh, you're from the Republic... You seemed quite diligent, but you're here during the day to drink... If you start drinking all day, you will end up like these guys here. I recommend you don't go down that road...
House
Bookshelf:
One way to break the morale of your enemies is to cut down their leader. Identify the enemy leader immediately.
