IF OBTAINED THE KEY
Here we go... Zero... I'm going to entrust this to you.
Zero has obtained the Key to the Cargo Hold
Thank you, sister... I can now rescue Rogan.
Do you really have to go, again..? Since Lord Synbios has lost his father, he needs more help than ever before.
I understand that... my sister... It hurts me to see Lord Synbios in such pain and agony... but...
You're needed by the Medion army... I understand... You do have consent from Lord Synbios, and it is important...
Benetram said your aiding the Medion army may lead to a peaceful future with the Empire...
If that is your decision, then you must hurry... I'm sure Prince Medion awaits you.
Kahn, I must return this to you...
Return... something to me..?
Zero handed the Treasure Orb of Elbesem to Kahn
You're giving me this... With this, we should be able to destroy the barrier of the Bulzome high priest...
Once the Bulzome high priest headed out this way, I knew a clash with the Synbios battalion was inevitable. I had intended to give this to you before that happened, but...
The fact you got us the Treasure Orb will help us greatly from now on, and we appreciate that very much.
But... You're giving this to us... Don't you need this when you go to the Medion army?
Please do not worry. I got it at Elbesem, so feel free to take it with you. Well then... I'll be taking off now. Please take care of Lord Synbios for me.
He is gone... Zero...
Umm... The others.... have many things to deal with... We're not the only ones with heavy burdens...
That is... certainly true... but I cannot believe what happened to Lord Conrad...
It must weigh on Lord Synbios's mind... we must go, despite the difficulty, to the north end of Aspinia, to Lookover.
I'm surprised to hear that Duke Palsis, who resigned his position in the Republic, is now in such a remote place....
I don't know much about Duke Palsis, but I've heard about Lookover... there's a ruin of a giant tower there.
We of Flagard have gone to Lookover many times to transfer messages between Lord Conrad and Duke Palsis.
If Bulzome is heading for Duke Palsis, we should be chasing after them. ...Um... What are we to do?
Please give me a few more moments...
I know, Masqurin.... I, too, want to remain and take my time in saying goodbye to Lord Conrad.
Lord Conrad's last words... he told us to protect Palsis... You seem concerned, Sir Dantares?
Grace, I cannot lie to you... You are right... I worry with that high priest already ahead of us.
Even so, let's wait a little longer. Synbios knows the situation well. He's probably organizing his thoughts.
Are you ready to proceed... Lord Synbios?
Are we heading to.... Lookover?
... to see Duke Palsis?
Let us go to Lookver... and fight Fiale, the high priest of Bulzome, to avenge Lord Conrad's death!
FLAGARD CASTLE HALL
I can't believe Lord Conrad is gone... If only he was completely healthy... he wouldn't have fallen so easily.. You are now this land's lord. Please do not go... Well.. I guess that won't sway you, will it?
FLAGARD CASTLE LIBRARY
Scholar with many Booksheves:
The Thousand Year Kingdom predicted a god would descend to the earth and usher in a new world. One with a complete government based on love, respect, and equality. This is the basis of Republican ideology.
Scholar in Front of Single Bookshelf:
Lord Conrad was interested in the ancient civilization that existed on this continent and the reason for its demise. Lord Conrad ordered that research be conducted on this topic. Would you like to hear the report?
Scholar in Front of Single Bookshelf:
If this civilization didn't disappear so suddenly, this world would be much different than what it is today. The freedom and equality we pursue today, would've been far more difficult to attain back then.
Scholar in Front of Single Bookshelf:
This ancient civilization peaked 1000 years ago. It was hard for the human race back then because the Vandal ruled them! Commonly thought to be a myth, the Vandal did exist. This area was the domain of Bulzome, who ruled it with fear and terror.
How to spend your golden years alone! Find yourself a hobby or interest if you lose your wife early in life... Or when your kids leave home...Otherwise, you'll be bored when you retire.
Palsis and Benetram's promise! We will all dedicate our lives to the Republic. If one is to die before the dream is realized, the other shall carry on the dream.
To fool the enemy, start with allies! When a plan to reach a goal or objective is being formulated, avoid spreading too many pieces of information to those around you.
Become a good strategist using the Ranchester Theory! All games have a law of the weak and the strong. Do not confuse the two, or you will even lose a contest you should have won.
Theory of common equality and wealth! When leading stops and ruling starts, the ideology of equality vanishes. A new country will then be born that is based on hierarchy of class and power structure.
FLAGARD CASTLE BEDROOMS
We must let Lady Margaret, of the Malorie territories, know of Lord Conrad's death... She loved her father very much, so I'm sure Lady Margaret would want to say one last goodbye to him.
Bookshelf Near Woman:
How to become a good cook in just 3 months before the wedding! This is for a rich daughter who has never stepped into the kitchen. These are tips on how to prepare good food for your husband.
Bookshelf Near Entrance:
The attitude to surpass your parents! The 2nd generation complains of being labeled lazy. To avoid being accused of laziness, the 2nd generation must work as hard if not harder than the 1st generation.
FLAGARD CASTLE BARRACKS
Soldier Near Boxes:
I was taken by surprise... and when I came to, I was tied up with a rope. Even though many werer killed... I was left to live... in shame... One day... I shall make them pay...
Soldier Near Window:
Not dwelling on the past... The generosity of Synbios strikes me all over again! If and when Synbios succeeds as new lord of this land, I shall pledge a stronger, new found loyalty!
FLAGARD CASTLE KITCHEN
I'm so sorry... this is too tragic... Lord Conrad was loved by everyone... How could he be a target?
Of course, I still believe in Elbesem... But, I wonder how the death of Lord Conrad can be within his will...? He dedicated his life to the Republic, so he should have been protected. He was truly a great man...
The Republican flags hanging from the fronts of these houses are symbols of mourning... Everyone is deeply saddened about the sudden and untimely death of Lord Conrad.
Old Woman on the Wall:
SOB, SOB... WEEP, WEEP... How could Lord Conrad pass away... There is no god... There is no karma...
Moving Old Woman:
Lord Synbios, if you are going to Lookover, please be extremely careful... In the northern plains on the way to Lookover, I saw some very suspicious figures...
If we keep mourning over Lord Conrad's death and not get back on our feet, Lord Conrad himself would be disappointed. The reason Flagard became so great is because we always worked hard to cultivate the land under his rule.
I still can't believe in myself that Lord Conrad has passed away. If something happens to Lord Synbios on top of that... What would happen to Flagard?
I'm impressed that you found this store... As a reward, I'll be glad to offer a discount to you!
It makes pretty waves.
HOUSE NORTHWEST OF ENTRANCE
Oh... Lord Synbios, you came to see me... Just to wish me better health... I'm in awe of your kindness. Your father was also very kind... I see much of your father in you.
Since Lord Synbios is here, I feel we should offer you a drink or some food, but... My wife is so distraught, she just sits in bed all day. Please excuse us for our lack of hospitality.
HOUSE IN THE MIDDLE OF FLAGARD
The tower of Lookover is the tallest building in this continent. From the top, you can see very far into the horizon, and the view is spectacular. The Great Wall runs through there, although it's pretty deserted now.
Duke Palsis, who lives in Lookover, is a brilliant person, whom Lord Conrad had a lot of great things to say about. I wonder why he left Aspia all of the sudden and stayed in Lookover... It's very mysterious...
HOUSE IN THE SOUTHWEST OF FLAGARD
In order to cheer us all up... Lord Synbios is going around the town... but he must be bearing the most pain among us. When I think about that... We should... stop complaining and try to get back on our feet.
Lord Synbios... are you walking around town talking to each and every one of us? That's great how the new lord is trying to meet everyone! You are certainly Lord Conrad's son!
HOUSE WITH FENCED WELL
It feels like the whole town has stopped functioning. Apparently, Lord Conrad's passing has affected the majority of the town's people.
It never ceases to amaze me how much Lord Conrad was loved. Even a trouble making kid liked him enough to come pray. We will forever regret his loss...
Dear gods... until yesterday, I was a bad boy. From now on, I'll be good. I'll come to church and pray everyday. So... please, I beg you... Please bring Lord Conrad back.
We heard of Lord Conrad's death. My son, who dislikes church, wanted to come and pray next to me.
To be born as well as to die.... is all by the will of Elbesem... That's what I preach, and believe. But Lord Conrad's death... I've struggled with it, but I must let it go or it may be seen as questioning Elbesem...
Ugh... in front of Lord Synbios.... I must not shed tears like this... even so, I cannot help the sorrow...
SNIFF... poor Lord Synbios.... your father Lord Conrad is gone... How tragic.... SNIFF, SNIFF...
SNIFF.. He was so very kind... Lord Conrad... suddenly dead... What will happen to Aspinia now?
Everyone is mourning Lord Conrad's death. He must have been such a great man... I wish I met him while he was alive...
I know we grieve over Lord Conrad's death, but if we delay chasing Fiale, we might put Duke Palsis' life in jeopardy...
AIYAA... Synbios' father... he was good man? I be so sad... I cry for him...
Damn the Bulzome Sect!!! To achieve their goal, they took the life or Lord Conrad whom... they regarded as a hindrance. Now, to add to this tragedy, they now aim to take Duke Palsis' life.
Zero could not stand to see you in sorrow, so he left to see Prince Medion. He's very worried about you, and your state of mind.
I regret that we let Fiale get away after getting so close... let's be sure to finish him off at Lookover.
I've heard that all castles have a secret pathway, though I never thought we'd enter Flagard using one... It saddens me that we did not make it in time even then.
Another person who was vital to the future of Aspinia... is now gone... I'm having a hard time dealing with this.
Do unto them... what's been done unto you.. However, the lost life never returns. Fighting on seems pointless.
CHIRP, CHIRP... (Are you okay, Synbios? Fight on!) ... that's what he's saying, I think.
If only Lord Synbios' father's health... was okay, this could've been avoided... I can only express my condolences.
GRRRR... what my instinct sensed was the death of Lord Conrad... My heart is howling... URRRR...
