Shining Force III Scenario 1: God Warrior of the Kingdom
Chapter 1: Nightmare in the Floating City of Saraband
Saraband Docking Pier
Script typed up by: Lineage
Pier
Guard:
Ugh... damn you, Benetram...Ugh... damn you, Benetram...
Dantares:
That was close. We almost had to fight the bridge guards of Saraband. Who got here first?
Benetram:
By any reckoning, this is a sad state of affairs.
Hayward:
Huh??? King Benetram...? If that's you, and you're here, then... Who is that other Benetram?
Masked Monk (red):
If you have no wish for corpes to clutter up the landscape, you will move aside and leave us alone. It will also be much better for your health.
Right guard:
We cannot allow that. The affairs of Saraband will be resolved by Saraband's soldiers, even if it costs us our lives!
Masked Monk (red):
Heh heh heh... I understand. You will regret disobeying King Benetram as I put you to death.
Domaric:
So... you will... continue this murderous rampage...?
Masked Monk (red):
I am surprised to hear the 'Lord of Massacres' Emperor Domaric would be so compassionate. Well, in deference to Emperor Domaric's wishes, we will make your end swift and merciful.
Garosh:
Stop it... Ugh... Run away, my brother... Run!
Guard (Garosh's brother):
You.. You're still alive, Garosh!
Garosh:
I... I was only knocked unconscious. I'm all right... so, brother... run away from that monster!
Masked Monk (red):
Ha! Regrettably, your advice comes a bit late.
Guards:
Noooooo!
Garosh:
NO! My... my dear brother!
Benetram:
How sadistic....
Impostor:
My sources tell me the Republican army has escaped Saraband.
Masked Monk (red):
The main Republic force has deployed itself in the adjacent plains, and the battle rages on as we speak.
Impostor:
Benetram, however, is still alive... He used the bulk of his forces as a decoy... he is quite clever.
Hayward:
It seems the mystery is beginning to unravel.... That looks like Benetram up ahead, but why are there no Republic guards with him? There's something wrong here.
Impostor:
Now that this guard has seen through our ploy, we must silence him, along witht that Republican rabble.
Masked Monk (red):
Please hurry ahead with Domaric. I'll catch up with you once we have things in hand here.
Benetram:
They plan to kill the guard who saw through their plan, and us along with him. That guard is the only witness who can prove my innocence. We must do everything we can to protect him.
Dantares:
If anything happens to you, my Lord, our decoy forces will be risking their lives for nothing. Please leave this to us.
Benetram:
I understand... I'll stay out of your way and simply wish you luck.
During the battle
Advice
Benetram:
Synbios, that Saraband guard is a witness who can clear my name. Do everything you can to protect him.
Advice when either both Garosh and Hayward are rescued or dead
Benetram:
If you're unsure how to act, study your oppenent carefully. The flag mark indicates their leader.
The impostor leaves with Domaric
Impostor:
Listen up, you Republican buffoons. I'll take my leave with the Emperor now, your pathetic lives end here!
Domaric:
I see.... So that's how it is... So many hidden agendas... Both Benetram and even me, Domaric, are mere pawns in this twisted scheme...
Hayward is dead
Hayward:
I never thought... it would end like this.... I only wish I could have found a leader truly worthy of my trust...
Garosh is dead
Garosh:
Ugh... brother... I'm sorry... I couldn't tell the lieutenant... about the impostor.
Hayward is rescued
Hayward:
I'm a mercenary. and my name is Hayward.... I'm glad you came along to help when you did. I see the famous Sir Dantares is with you. Does that mean you are the army of the great Lord Conrad?
Benetram:
His son Synbios commands here. We are chasing those masked monks and their impostor.
Hayward:
To pursue such a powerful enemy... you seem to be at an obvious disadvantage in strength.
Synbios:
.......
Hayward:
Please, allow me to join your band! I've dreamed of fighting alongside a famous warrior like Sir Dantares.
Hayward the archer joins the force
Hayward:
Thank you! Thank you! No matter what happens, you won't regret this.
Garosh is rescued
Garosh:
You are members of the REAL Republican army? To impersonate King Benetram... and take the life of my brother.... I shall make them pay for this! I'll inform Governor Garvin of this, and dispel all the lies about you. Please go now, I'll catch up to you.
After the battle
If Garosh was rescued
Benetram:
That was quite a stiff fight... yet everyone acquitted themselves admirably.
Dantares:
In any case, Garosh is taking much too long. I wonder if he was able to clear our name...
Synbios:
.......
Benetram:
If we waste any more time, they'll have too much of a head start. We must leave at once for Balsamo!
Dantares:
I see... You're referring to the information from General Varlant about their base of operations? I understand. Let's go after them.
The battle is over before rescuing Garosh
Garosh:
To impersonate King Benetram... and take the life of my brother.... I shall make them pay for this! I'll inform Governor Garvin of this, and dispel all the lies about you. Please go now, I'll catch up to you.

Hayward:
Thank you! Thank you! No matter what happens, you won't regret this.
Garosh is dead
Benetram:
That was quite a stiff fight... yet everyone acquitted themselves admirably.
Dantares:
But we were unable to save that guard. He was an important witness, who knew about both the impostor and the Emperor.
Synbios:
.......
Benetram:
Indeed... Synbios, they must be headed toward Balsamo. We must head after them! If we hurry, we can still catch them.
Saraband Center
Going elswhere
Benetram:
If we waste any time here... it will only allow them to get away. We must press on towards Balsamo!
Old man:
Have you heard the latest gossip? It seems that during the meeting, King Benetram slapped the Emperor Domaric!
Young man:
I umm... would, get out and fight... If only I had a weapon... I don't care if you don't believe me!
Woman with baby:
It seems the Imperial army found out the Republican army had landed via the pier. They're planning their response.
Girl:
I'm sure many are injured. I must go and tend their injuries. After all, they're fighting for the country.
Man:
Seeing someone from the Republic here makes me doubt the latest rumor. I heard that the Republican army attacked Saraband in full force, and used that momentum to advance to the capital of the Destonia Empire.
Old woman:
I heard that the shots fired were due to the two heads of state who decided to get in a fist fight.
Centaur by the laundry (Arthur):
I'm flabbergasted with the greed of merchants. They left right away, saying that war equals money.
Guard by the eastern gate:
Government and Eastern district pathways are closed. Try the Business district path to the Western District.
Guard by the western gate:
Government and Western district pathways are closed. Try the Business district path to the Eastern District.
Guard by the government gate:
This is the Government district of Saraband. Access to this district is now prohibited, due to emergency.
Weapon seller:
I know you want to shop for weapons... but I don't have any that I can sell you right now. Those men from the Governor General's Office took them and hid them somewhere. I've been asking for them back, but...
Church
Priest:
I feel an evil influence behind all the riots. It is something opposing Elbesem... That is all my powers can tell me. I must train harder in the future...
Girl:
Have you looked around Saraband? All the merchants are gone! They are looking to get rich from the war, and so they went elsewhere!
Woman:
Many precious lives have been lost... I can only pray that all the poor souls can find peace in the heavens.
Bar
Bartender:
They say that a woman's heart is like autumn's weather. It changes so very quickly, and is unpredictable... Don't you understand what I'm saying? Oh well, you'll learn everything soon enough...
Waitress:
Oh... you did come back... But I heard that the Republic started the riot. I don't want to associate with you people.
Bartender:
As soon as the gun shots stopped, the merchants went away to do business, and the soldiers returned to their stations. Now there's no one left... We're open, but what for? Oh yeah... Why don't you stay and play with us?
Eastern District
Headquarters
Benetram:
Now that you've seen the impostor pretending to be me, my innocence is provem, at least to you.
Dantares:
Because of the impostor Benetram, we must flee from Saraband like dogs. Absolutely unbearable! Don't you agree with me, Lord Synbios? Let us get our revenge by exonerating ourselves.
Masqurin:
I've always had the impression that monks always help others. Those masked monks, however, are just big meanies!
Grace:
The fake Benetram and the monks fled by way of the docking pier... I wonder what they are plotting now?
Hayward:
I've traveled to Destonia and Saraband for jobs, never imagining I'd end up in the Republican army.
If Garosh is saved
Garosh's girlfriend:
You guys are the ones who rescued my love Garosh, aren't you?
Begin choice options
No
Garosh's girlfriend:
Oh please don't be so modest... Garosh told me about you. Truly... I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Garosh went to see Governor Garvin to clear the reputation of the Republic.
End choice options
If Garosh is dead
Garosh's girlfriend:
No guards from the docking pier squad have returned. I believe Garosh is... dead. He asked me to do one thing if he died... To release all the doves, so they could fly free. Please come and see them off with me. Letters are attached to these doves. They will fly to Garosh's family and inform them of his death. SOB... Now that the doves are gone, I miss him even more. I promised him... I promised him I wouldn't cry no matter what happens, but I just... can't help it... sniff...
Old man:
Saraband was a neutral trading country. How could anyone turn this place into a battleground...Oh no, I'm not blaming you... Everyone says it was the Republic's doing, but I believe you guys aren't at fault.
Flower girl:
SOB... WEEP...Because of the fighting, many soldiers from Saraband were reported wounded or dead...
Man:
Why must people fight? Nobody really wins by fighting... How do you feel about that...
Young man:
Oh, this used to be such a beautiful city... It will take years before the beauty of Saraband is restored.
Old woman:
Oh no, the Republic has returned. Please spare my life... I'm begging you... Help me, Lord...
Barracks
Man:
All the soldiers in the guarding squads who lived in this dormitory were fun and carefree. Now that all of them are gone... I don't think Saraband will ever be the same.
If Garosh is saved
Kid:
YAY! WHOO WHOO! Mister Garosh has returned! I'm so glad he's alive! I can now return everything he lent me when he left.
If Garosh is dead
Kid:
I have something Mister Garosh gave me as a memento before he took off. Because of what's happened... I... I don't want to hold on to this any longer. I'm begging you... Please take this with you!
Begin choice options
No
Kid:
I... I see... I guess... Sob... It would only inconvenience you...
Yes
If full
Kid:
You have too much to carry already...? I don't want this anymore... Please come get it later!
If not
Synbios received the Silver Ring from the boy
Kid:
Oh gods... Please answer my prayers... I'll stop saying selfish things... so please return Mister Garosh to us...
If Garosh is saved
Woman:
I heard that every soldier from this dormitory was killed... I'm glad to hear that Garosh managed to survive, even in the face of such tragic news. I couldn't bear seeing my daughter lose her sweetheart.
If Garosh is dead
Woman:
I heard that everyone is dead... I never thought that Garosh and his brothers would have... He was a good man. I can't bear seeing my daughter, who just lost her sweetheart, in pain. I can't do anything, but let time pass.
Inventor's House
Man:
While the shots were fired, I felt something evil... It felt like something from the past that none of us care to remember... Well, maybe a little different, but...
Woman:
Ever since the shots were fired, my husband has been trembling violently, non-stop. I was terrified too, but for god's sake, we were inside our house! Why'd I marry such a chicken?
Kid:
I'm not ashamed that daddy is timid. Brains are important to a scientist... He doesn't need to be a macho man.
House 2
Woman:
Is it true that the docking pier guard squad was annihilated?... if that's the case, my husband is... We'll be okay financially, but our son will have no role model growing up. Are you busy for the next 10 years?
Kid:
.sniff. ... That's why I told him, I'd rather have him be a merchant than a soldier. I'll never join the militia!
Gal:
.sob. ...I... loved my father very much... He disappeared fighting the Republic... Please bring him back!
House 3
Girl:
The attack must have been an attempt on the Emperor Domaric's life. The Empire keeps implementing useless policies, so the Emperor must have many enemies among the powerful aristocrats in the Empire.
Young man:
I was so shocked when the shots were fired, I just ran in my house and hid.
House 4
Girl:
I was trying to check if my husband is alive, and I heard an unbelievable rumor... They say the Emperor Domaric was abducted. If that's true, then something very big is happening.
Woman:
Our daughter-in-law was spreading a strange rumor... Something so huge couldn't have... It must be a mistake.
House 5
Woman:
This was the first time that a battle broke out in Saraband. I never understood why we had such a big army in a neutral country, I guess it wasn't a waste of time, after all.
House 6
Old woman:
Granpa is always pretending to be strong, but when a situation like this arises, he shows his true colors... No wonder our son didn't join the militia and became a merchant. I guess it's all in the genes.
Gal:
My papa... He went to the Business district and hasn't returned. I hope he's hiding in a safe place.
Old man:
You think that the fighting has ended? I don't think so... Those shots were just the beginning...
