Balsamo East Plain
Script typed up by: Lineage
Outside
Masqurin:
I thought we'd run smack into an Imperial army out here, but it is quiet... eerily quiet...
Grace:
That's because General Tybalt and General Edmund are keeping the Imperials busy for a while.
Masqurin:
This isn't the only place that's quiet, Saraband is like a graveyard. Somehow... it makes me uneasy.
Dantares:
In any case, we should leave now... It's risky to travel in such a small band, and we have to return all the way back to the Republic...
Benetram:
As traveling to the Republic could be too dangerous, let us make for Railhead. That should be safer.
Synbios:
.......
Grace:
Have you prepared something for this circumstance, my lord?
Benetram:
I ordered General Produn to await us there. It would have been reckless coming to Saraband otherwise.
Masqurin:
Saraband is neutral, but floating in the middle of Imperial waters, it could be very dangerous.
Benetram:
We must head for Balsamo first. If we can rescue Emperor Domaric, we might get the peace process moving again.
Voice:
Hahaha... You think it will be just that easy?
Benetram:
Look there! He has Emperor Domaric! What have you done to him?!?
Masked Monk (red):
Domaric is just unconscious. With Imperial and Republican armies nearby, we can't risk having him causing a ruckus. We thought the battle had moved north, and that you were all dead. Our party must have been defeated. You seem dead set on coming after us. If that's the case... I shall help you achieve at least the 'dead' part...
Benetram:
While we dally with these monks, my impostor is escaping with Domaric! Stop them! Hurry, Synbios!
During the battle
Advice
Benetram:
The impostor is escaping to Balsamo! You can't let him get away, Synbios. Destroy the monk blocking our way!
The Impostor enters Balsamo
Impostor:
Ha! Synbios, Benetram, I will make it to Balsamo before you! If you want Emperor Domaric back, you will have to follow me there!
On the midway, trumpets blows
Benetram:
Eh? What's this?
Commander:
As excutors of the laws of Saraband we must depart at once to search for our allied nation's dignitary, Emperor Domaric, and bring the criminal King Benetram to justice! According to the bridge guardsman Garosh, King Benetram and the Republic are innocent... However, Governor Garvin rejects that. We must carry on, do our duty, and bring these kidnapers in!
Benetram:
A pursuit party from Saraband! Synbios, we must make for Balsamo, and stay ahead of them! Stick to terrain that is unsuitable for horsemen!
Advice
Benetram:
A swordsman against a knight on horseback doesn't have much of a chance.... Synbios, you must seek out advantages to use against your opponents.
Advice near Balsamo
Benetram:
If you get confused, take your time and inspect the opponents, Synbios. They may have more than one leader.
Advice the battle
After the battle
Varlant:
That was quite a fight you put up, Synbios.
Dantares:
Well well, General Varlant... We thought you had gone north with Lord Tybalt to fight the Imperial army...
Varlant:
The fierce fighting against the Empire continues, and they are moving north as we speak. Lord Tybalt ordered me to come here and assist King Benetram in his escape. However, it seems that my help isn't needed.
Benetram:
Not so. There is an Imperial ship near Saraband with an army aboard. Sooner or later they will come ashore....
Varlant:
I see... Yes, just as you say, they could come ashore anytime.
Spiriel:
In order to guard Prince Mageron, we had to delay the deployment of our troops. But it seems we are not too late to be useful after all. You! I see you are a Republican general. Be a man and identify yourself instead of cowering in anonymity!
Varlant:
How dare you say that! I am General Varlant of Barrand! Tremble in fear before me!
Spiriel:
Ah, so you're Varlant... I had hoped to someday meed you on the field of battle, and find out if the rumors are true. Spiriel Battalion, form up for battle!
Crewart:
As always, your words and actions are at odds with your beauty, General Spiriel...
Spiriel:
Leash your wagging tongue, General Crewart, or I'll rip it out and feed it to my dogs!
Arrawnt:
It would appear she doesn't like you, Crewart.
Spiriel:
Prince Arrawnt...! I didn't know you were...
Mageron:
It is good to show Arrawnt respect, but he has some ulterior designs regarding you. You'd be wise to steer clear of him, Spiriel.
Arrawnt:
How can you say things like that about your dear little brother, Mageron?
Mageron:
I thought your troops were to have departed a while ago, Spiriel.
Spiriel:
We have a small problem in the form of a force from the Republic Prince Mageron.
Mageron:
Hmmm... Yes, indeed.... I see now. Spiriel... You'd prefer to crush the Republic over searching for my father, eh? I suppose that is acceptable. I assume they will not delay you for very long.
Crewart:
Prince Arrawnt... I, too, wish to leave some of my soldiers here.
Spiriel:
What...! How dare you, Crewart! Are you implying that you cannot trust me?
Crewart:
N-No! You misunderstand me, Spiriel! If you dispatch your men to the north, I shall send mine west, just in case they surprise us.
Spiriel:
Very well, I understand. I shall leave that to you.
Arrawnt:
All right then. Brother, Spiriel, I'll go ahead and depart first.
Mageron:
Spiriel, I shall leave as well. No matter what happens, don't let your guard down.
Spiriel:
Here we are, General Varlant.... We are on even turf now. Now we shall both get our wish....
Varlant:
Now, here is our chance, Synbios. Take care of King Benetram.
Dantares:
While General Varlant is fighting, let us rescue Emperor Domaric.
Benetram:
Crewart's soldiers must be heading this way as we speak. We must find the Emperor before they get here.
