King’s City Battle
Script typed up by: Lineage
AFTER BRIDGE BATTLE
Arrawnt:
What... what in the world... What has just happened...? The Colossus... said to be matchless in might... and my Imperial army... have been wiped out?
Palsis:
That's right, prince Arrawnt.... We used the Colossus as a decoy to bring you here!
Arrawnt:
I see... By compromising the dam... The smoke signal we saw earlier... Damn... I've been tricked!!!
Synbios:
....
Arrawnt:
I'll never surrender... My strongest troops are still intact, and reserves will arrive in just a few minutes! Once I destroy you and the rest of the Republican scum, I can usurp my father's throne and rid myself of anyone who would rule in my place... Neither my father, nor my brothers will be able to stop me.
Palsis:
Prince Arrawnt has lost it... He not only wants to stop the Republic, but wants to destroy anything that gets in his way... including his family. The Dark Power must have twisted him in some way...
ADVICE
Palsis:
I have no more advice for you. Synbios, trust in your own powers and fight with everything you have!
AFTER THE BATTLE
Arrawnt:
I, Arrawnt, have been defeated... I've fallen right into Synbios' trap...
Palsis:
You defeated yourself, Prince. The Empire had the advantage... Your blind ambition made you stupid.
Arrawnt:
Where were my reinforcements? Why didn't they come?
Synbios:
.....
Arrawnt:
You're the son of Lord Conrad. Your brilliant strategies... You must have taken after your father.
Palsis:
Why did a nobleman like yourself ally himself with the evil Bulzome? Why would you turn on your family?
Arrawnt:
By the custon of the Empire, the second-born Prince can never assume the throne. I had to take it... By defeating the Republic, I would have had the people behind me, but Empire law cannot be thrown away... It seemed like the only way... If my father and brother were gone, then I could assume the throne. With the cult's help, I would have succeeded. Their deaths could have been blamed on them... However... My dream comes to an end... ugh...
Synbios:
.....
Palsis:
An Imperial battle over succession... escalated into full-scale war between the Empire and the Republic and the near destruction of the entire Kingdom...
Synbios:
.....
Palsis:
But, Synbios, this one problem has been dealt with, permanently. There are many others...
Algernon:
Woo-hoo! You really won! Uncle Synbios really won! I thought for sure he'd get... Uh never mind...
Synbios:
!!!
Algernon:
The way you defeated the Colossus... It was really neat! All that water and...
Margaret:
So you're safe now, Algernon!
Synbios:
....
Tristus:
You really beat the Colossus. That's no small feat, Synbios.
Palsis:
Lord Tristus! How did you arrive here? And with such timing?
Margaret:
After you departed, he mobilized the Malorie army... Even as his wife... he is an unfathomable man...
Tristus:
Soldiers were sent one at a time to avoid notice. When the water was released from the dam, we attacked and wiped out most of Arrawnt's reserve troops.
Palsis:
That was quite bold! I guess the risk paid off since Algernon was unharmed...
Yasha:
It is premature to think he is safe.
Synbios:
.....
Yasha:
Aha... where are you looking!? The venerable Yasha is right here!
Tristus:
You... a ninja?
Yasha:
I was under orders from the Emperor Domaric to watch Prince Arrawnt.
Margaret:
By the order of the Emperor? What...? How come you didn't show up earlier to help him?
Yasha:
I was ordered to covertly watch him and report back to him on anything that happens. Even I was unaware of Prince Arrawnt joining with the Bulzome monks and his current plans up until recently.
Synbios:
.....
Yasha:
I didn't think the Prince would be beaten by a rag-tag bunch like yourselves, although I don't know if it would have been in the Emperor's best interests to intervene.
Margaret:
Do you mean this entire war could have been avoided if Arrawnt was the next successor to the throne?
Yasha:
Hmm... That's a simpleton's way of thinking! The Emperor still has every intention of taking back Aspinia from you Republicans, just the circumstances would have been a little different.
Palsis:
Wait!! You said it was premature to say Algernon was safe. What are you going to do?!
Yasha:
I would usually not kill such a young child, but... You, Tristus, broke your word. Though Arrawnt fought fairly... you betrayed your promise.
Tristus:
Yes... yes... That is true... But a father cannot stand by while... while his son....
Yasha:
Your treachery is unforgivable, and in doing so, you have forfeited your son's life!
Margaret:
No, I beg you! Take me... Please take my life instead!
Algernon:
Ahaaa...!
Synbios:
!!!
Palsis:
Dear gods!
Tristus:
NOOOO!!!
Margaret:
ALGERNON!!!
Yasha:
I must leave and report back to the Empire about the past few days events.
Margaret:
Oh Algernon! My dear Algernon...
Tristus:
That... that Yasha... He sent Algernon into the moat... If only I could have stopped him...
Margaret:
My only son... He was our only hope...
Synbios:
.....
Palsis:
Synbios, I know you want to save him, but that water will suck you down. Don't risk your life...
Fynnding:
There is no need to die this way, Synbios!
Tristus:
Tha.. that voice... is it Fynnding?
Fynnding:
I always seem to have perfect timing. Wouldn't you agree, Tristus?
Palsis:
Fynnding, can it be...?
Margaret:
Algernon!
Tristus:
Algernon, my son!
Wilmer of Malorie, was defeated at the gates of Malorie castle, and Braff, the son of General Fafhard and Basanda, was defeated outside of Aspia. However before Synbios could kill Braff, his mother Basanda arrived to save him. When confronted in the catacombs, Synbios managed a final victory over the priestess. Following Duke Palsis plan of releasing the water from the dam, Synbios and his men destroyed the Colossus and decimated the massive Imperial army. Fighting bravely they regained control of the capital from the forces of Prince Arrawnt himself! The hostage against Malorie?s aggression, Lord Algernon, is safe once again. Briefly, peace is restored and Synbios and his heroes should be able to take a well deserved break.
