Switching Point
Masqurin:
All those Border Guards.... They're pretty smart, predicting our moves like that.
Grace:
The Imperial Border Guards have been sent all over looking for us.... They're trying to conver north of the track.
Dantares:
There are so many of them... We'd better take them out now... Before they get even more reinforcements.
Benetram:
Dantares makes a good point, but things could change any time. Take a look at the west side of the track.
Left behind refugee:
We're sorry, we can't walk any faster. Please everyone, go on without us.
Right middle refugee:
Oh no, we chose to flee the Empire together, and we're sticking together. We're almost there... Be strong!
Front refugee:
Over that mountain is our freedom! If we can get to the train switching point, we can get on the train.
Grace:
Refugees headed for the Republic. Without help, they'll be butchered. What do we do, Lord Synbios?
Synbios:
........
Front refugee:
All right, we're here now. The train will be here soon. Everyone try and get some rest.
Varlant:
We finally lost General Spiriel. Someday, I will have vengeance for the blood of all those lost patriots!
Front refugee:
You are... a general in the Republic army? Oh, we are so glad to see you! We wish to seek refuge in the Republic. Please... take us with you.
Varlant:
So, you intend to take advantage of the chaos of warfare, and sneak into the Republic? Seek refuge if you must... but our country is at war, and sacrifices must be made if she is to survive.
Refugees:
What... What are you talking about...?!
Varlant:
The Republic needs able-bodied men. You will either join a militia force, or be stripped of everything you own!
Front refugee:
I thought the Republic was based on fairness and equality... but I see you are no different from the Empire!
Border guard:
That's a pretty despicable show you're putting on, Republican remnants!
Varlant:
What... how dare you!
Refugees:
Just as I feared... the Imperial Border Guards!
Varlant:
So, you are the infamous Border Guards...
Border guard captain:
Leave those Imperial citizens alone. They shall be punished for attempting to defect, by Imperial law. I was after Benetram, but I've found a General instead. With your capture, I'll reap great rewards.
Refugees:
So, there's no way out of this....
Border guard captain:
You selfish peasants... you only think of yourselves! I'll kill you all, along with the Border Guards!
Synbios:
........
Border guard captain:
Oh, so that was your plan... to attack me from both sides...
Dantares:
Border Guards, your infamy is well known. I won't let you punish these people so mercilessly.
Benetram:
I'm disappointed with you, Varlant, involving these refugees. Isn't that against our vaunted Republic ideology?
Varlant:
Hmm... Synbios and his army... It seems... you did not come here to help us?
Begin choice options
No / Yes
Synbios:
........
Varlant:
Shut up, you snot-nosed whelp! What do you know! Peace is kept because of us soldiers. A country falls without a military!
Grace:
You've gone through much fighting. We understand you are upset. Just relax... and return to the Republic.
Varlant:
How many died due to Imperial plots!? My soldiers died because of them! I will burn the Empire to the ground!
Benetram:
Have you gone crazy, General Varlant?You do not appear willing to listen to reason. If so, we must fight the both of you....
Medion:
My men will take care of mad General Varlant's army! I heard everything, King Benetram. Also, it seems you have gone through quite an ordeal, Lord Synbios.
Synbios:
........
Medion:
We will discuss the details later... I came here to ask you something, but we must take care of this first!
Grantack:
People can't choose where they're born but they should have the right to choose where they live....
Medion:
The military should protect the people, not oppress them, otherwise the nation will not survive!
Campbell:
You murderers and theives, we, the Medion army, will punish you all!
Medion:
We don't want to fight Empire troops. You take care of the Border Guards, and we shall take care of Varlant.
Begin choice options
No
Synbios:
........
End choice options
Campbell:
We will attack General Varlant's forces. We won't let them lay a finger on the refugees!
Border guard captain:
Stupid, immature Prince Medion! However, against Synbios, we are assured victory. Come get some!
Synbios:
........
Benetram:
A strong ally has come to help us, Synbios. Use this momentum and defeat the Border Guards with haste.
During the battle
When stopping on the tracks
Benetram:
Synbios, trains are coming and going all the time! Be careful when crossing the tracks, and never stop on them!
Advice
Benetram:
Synbios, Prince Medion is taking care of the Varlant army. We must crush the Border Guard!
When a refugee is hit or killed
Border guard captain:
Attempting to defect from the Empire is a capital offense! Stop! Look, it's Prince Medion and Synbios!
Medion:
!!!
Benetram:
Damn you Border Guard swine! They'll kill those innocent people.... Protect those refugees, Synbios.
During battle
Border guard captain:
Damn! I never expected Synbios's forces to break through our lines! Prince Medion, Synbios's battalion is... Please aid us and... reinforce our unit....
Medion:
My brother has ordered me to crush the rampaging Republican dogs... not innocent, unarmed civilians!
Border guard captain:
Prince Medion?!? You would turn away while your countrymen are cut down? You call yourself a Prince!?
Medion:
I have no obligation towards Border Guards who would slaughter innocent Empire citizens, sir!
Border guard captain:
You will regret this, Prince Medion! If we survive, people shall hear of this black deed.
After the battle
Border guard captain:
Though you defeated me, you'll never reach the Republic. Remember, I will see you again... in hell.... ...and you, Prince Medion. The die is cast... you peasant brat! You will see!
Dantares:
Thanks to your help, Prince Medion, we rescued these refugees. How can I ever repay you?
Campbell:
Oh no... we are the ones to say thank you. Those Border Guards are despicable....
Benetram:
You wanted to ask us something... What made you chase after us so urgently? I will answer it if I can.
Grantack:
The rumor in the Empire is that King Benetram abducted the Emperor. First, tell us if that is true or not.
Dantares:
As you can see, we are innocent. If we had abducted the Emperor, he would be with us right now.
Benetram:
However, the rumor is not completely a fabrication. A 'Benetram' certainly participated in the abduction! We met him... An impostor who is pretending to be me!
Medion:
An impostor? For what purpose? If this impostor kidnapped my father, then did they hope to disrupt the negotiations?
Campbell:
If the peace conference was not their sole target, what else are they plotting?
Dantares:
We know the Bulzome Sect is involved. The impostor and the abduction were both engineered by them.
Synbios:
........
Medion:
At the cargo area in the western edge of Saraband, we fought the monks of Bulzome, right before the abduction.
Dantares:
A battle in the Saraband cargo area? How audacious of them to cause such turmoil right before the abduction....
Campbell:
In other places, too... Wherever we went... we encountered the Bulzome Sect doing some covert things.
Benetram:
The other question in your mind... would be regarding the whereabouts of the Emperor Domaric, correct? We were trapped by the 4 High Priests of Bulzome, who said they'd take the Emperor by ship while we distract the Empire.
Grantack:
So that must be the ship we saw earlier!
Medion:
So we did have a chance to rescue my father, but we let them slip away right under our noses! My brothers are with the fleet, but Rogan's ship is also there....
Grantack:
The ship Seagate of General Rogan! He sympathizes with you, my Prince! Let us go... to Barrand!
Medion:
I am sorry, we must take our leave. Lord Synbios, and everyone else, I shall pray for your safety.
Campbell:
Brave warrior of the Republic, Sir Dantares, let us share a drink or two in the future.
Dantares:
Well, so they have gone...
Synbios:
........
Cybel:
At the end of General Varlant's life, I was unable to fight at his side. I will never forget this shame.
Dantares:
You are Cybel of Barrand. You are here as a member of the Varlant army....
Cybel:
Varlant's army is no more, Sir Dantares. He lost his mind, and with it, his ability to fight effectively. Spiriel's army kept us on the run, and the General... snapped. I tried to bring him to his senses, but... I was separated from the main body and survived, but General Varlant, who thought he was invincible, is gone.
Benetram:
here is no need to be so hard on yourself. You can die anytime. Now, you must find a way to live, Cybel.
Cybel:
Your majesty Benetram! I have deserted my commander. I am ashamed to call myself a knight.
Benetram:
I saw your general's last moments. He clearly lost his mind. There is no fault on your part, Cybel.
Dantares:
If you are so concerned about your knight's honor, why not prove yourself, and lend us a hand?
Cybel:
To preserve my honor as an Aspinian knight, I shall join your cause.
Cybel the knight joined the force
Benetram:
It is time for the train to depart.
Dantares:
Now we can finally leave the Empire.
Benetram:
All right. Let us all board this train.
