Chapter 3: Target: Guardian Statue of Elbesem
Border South West Plain
Script typed up by: Lineage
Once we cross the bridge, we will be in Barrand. The Empire may have men there, but it is Republican territory.
We can't let our guard down, Synbios. As Dantares said, Barrand is overrun with Imperial troops. It seems they've prepared for us, as well. Look, a large force guards the bridge... How shall we deal with something that large...
General Franz, please come look! In the direction of Quonus Village, the Republican army!
There they are, Synbios and his men. I have heard news of them and their exploits for some time now. I respect his skills greatly, and for that reason, I shall crush him with my forces so he may die in battle!
I cannot believe it. He brought such a huge host...
To mount a frontal assault when badly outnumbered is not exactly wise, Synbios. We must stay north, maintain our mobility, engage them on our terms, and keep them scattered!

During the battle, trumpets blows and Spiriel's army appears
What? That horn, who.. what...?
The gods! Even though he had such a huge force, he still sent for reinforcements...
What? General Spiriel...? I wasn't notified about this...
Must hurry... must hurry... before the airborne units... get to... the Elbesem statue... in Barrand....
Spiriel, you're acting strange... Oh yes, you were after the Republican army. You were reported missing...
Must hurry... urgent.... To Barrand... Guardian Statue....
She almost seems possessed... Possibly some Bulzome magic? Could they be using her to destroy it?
What do you mean "it", Kahn?
The Demon Gate of Elbesem, the Guardian Statue of the north. It protects us from invasion by Bulzome.
If destroyed, Elbesem will be in grave danger. Please hurry, Lord Synbios... We mustn't let them get there first!
Damn Republicans... they're planning a full scale attack. I tell you now, General Spiriel... don't get in our way!
The Spiriel army is moving towards the bridge
The Spiriel army is in our sights... Orders, sir?! Please, give us an order!!
Damn Spiriel... now she's done it. They have finally broke through the southern camp.... If we Imperials keep fighting amongst ourselves, it will only give more advantage to Synbios.... Let the Spiriel army pass. I shall deal with her later. For now, crush the Synbios army!
After the battle
My army was unbeatable.... If not for Spiriel's treachery, I would have been victorious.... You never defeated me, Synbios. Remember that! Destonia... Empire... hail... ugh...!
Perhaps General Franz was correct... the Spiriel army's intrusion may have aided our victory, Synbios.
General Franz' death will be tough for them to take. The fact it was caused by one of their own.... We have no time for sympathy. If the statue Kahn mentioned is in danger, we must protect it, Synbios.
Everyone is quite exhausted. If we can afford to, we should rest a while. Should we stop briefly at that village ahead?
Begin choice options
Hmm, yes... if Elbesem is invaded, the continent will be thrown into chaos. Let us pursue Spiriel now!!
The force enters Vagabond
