Script typed up by: Earl
START CHAPTER 3
As the Gardiana Shining Force approached Cypress, a customs ship met them, and towed the boat into the harbor. Everything and everybody on board was thoroughly inspected. It took some fast talking to get past the inspection...
Ruce:
...and so I escaped from Asreet with only my clothes. Those Gardiana warriors are awesome!
Lizardman:
Really. (Yawn) I had no idea. OK, you can go.
Sig:
It's Nick's turn! He'd better come up with a good tale...
Master Mage:
Next!
Suddenly, King Edmond appeared at the dock!
Ruce:
Look! It's Nick's uncle!
Lizardman:
What brings you to Cypress, kid?
Nick:
.........
Ruce:
Um... He's mute. Born that way. He's traveling with me.
Lizardman:
All right, he can pass. Next!
Edmond:
Wait! Stop that man! Let me get a good look at him... Why... it's Nick!!! Guards! Arrest him! Prince Nick is a danger to the Crown!
Apis:
They're arresting Nick! We've got to stop them!
BATTLE 11
Gyan:
Prince Nick!! You've returned... and brought warriors with you!! You sure scared Edmond! What is it Prince? Please talk to me.
Lowe:
Nick hasn't spoken since we found out he was a Cypress prince.
Gyan:
Why?
Lowe:
Nick didn't tell us the truth about his origins. Frankly, we're not sure we can trust Nick...
Gyan:
You MUST trust him! He went to Gardiana to save your country! He is a noble warrior, and the rightful King of Cypress! He wanted to stay and avenge his father, but he went to help you first.
Lowe:
Nick! You should have told us... Though I'm not sure we would have believed you... But we're with you now. And we'll help you avenge your father!
Gyan:
Now that that's settled... We can stop and rest in the port town. Tomorrow, let's go to the palace and confront Edmond!
Gyan joins the force
Gyan:
Stop, everybody!! It will be hard to hide from Woldol here. The pampas is so flat and barren!
Lowe:
No rocks, no trees... we'd be easy to spot.
Gyan:
Let's rest here until nightfall. I'll stand guard while the rest of you sleep. When it's dark enough to cover us, we'll go.
Woldol:
Is my prince resting comfortably?
Gyan:
Woldol!!? Come out and face us!
Woldol:
Gyan, what you are seeing is just a projection. It can't harm you... but my soldiers can. Ah, here they come now! ATTACK!
Gyan:
Nick! Wake up! We're under attack!
Deadly Born:
Yes, Nick! Come on out! I promised Woldol that you would die today!
BATTLE 12
Deadly Born:
Master... I have failed... But no one has ever survived the magic mushrooms! May the Death Tunnel be your tomb!
Lowe:
No mere curse can stop us now. Come on! Let's check out the Death Tunnel!
Ghoul:
Ah, Nick! You have finally arrived! Welcome to the Death Tunnel... the only way to Gundoll Fort! Did you come to die, like your friends before you?
Kashing:
Watch out for traps! The exploding mushrooms are deadly!
Ghoul:
Where did you come from, Gardianan fool!? Shup up!
Lowe:
Kashing! At least one of you survived! Nick, how will we get through the traps?
BATTLE 13
Ghoul:
Impossible! You defeated the mushroom traps!
Kashing:
Ohhhhhh.... ouch...
Lowe:
Kashing, are you all right?
Kashing:
Y... yes...
Lowe:
We're so glad to see you! Where are the others?
Kashing:
Some were killed. Some were taken prisoner. Only a few of us managed to escape. Let me help you free the captives in Gundoll fort!
Kashing joins the force
Lowe:
Nick, we've found the Gardiana soldiers! Let's go save them!
Kashing:
See that fort rising over the mountain? That's Gundoll. They're in there, somewhere... Gates, let's wait for the changing of the guard.
Minotaur:
It's Gardiana's Shining Force! Bazoo and Geppel aren't here. Guards! Kill them!
BATTLE 14
Minotaur:
Bazoo was right... you are no ordinary warriors... The Shining Force legend... is true...
Gates:
Hey, hey!
Lowe:
Gates! Why are you in such a hurry?
Gates:
They are killing one Gardiana captive... for every one of Bazoo's soldiers you defeat!
Lowe:
We must free them! Nick, Let's go!
Gates joins the force
Dantom:
It's been a long time, Prince Nick. You may be strong enough to defeat Bazoo, but you will not defeat me.
Frabell:
Back off, Dantom! They're MINE. A few fizzle balls, and they'll be toast. Prince! Prepare to meet your doom!
We'll turn the Prince... into mince!
Gates:
That's Frabell, a paladin.... and Dantom, a beast. Nothing special... just more of Woldol's goons. Hmm. Frabell seems to have soldiers... but no wizards! Be careful, Nick. She must have hidden some traps!
BATTLE 15
Frabell:
No one has ever survived my fizzle balls before! No matter. I will kill you with my bare hands! Dantom, lend me your soldiers!
Dantom:
Frabell, you disgust me. If Woldol could see you now...
Woldol:
I see everything, Frabell. And I am quite disappointed.
Frabell:
Let me explain, sir... !
Woldol:
Return to the palace, Frabell! NOW! Dantom, the honor... and Prince Nick's head... are yours. You may claim them when ready.
Dantom:
Prince Nick, I await you in Gundoll Fort. I warn you... Don't keep me waiting.
Dantom:
It has been many years, my prince. You look well. I dread this battle. You are like your father. You'll never back down. And yet I must kill you, even though my heart is with you.
BATTLE 16
Dantom:
I can't kill you... I can't. I served your family too long. King Edmond has been brainwashed by Woldol. And Woldol worships Iom, an evil spirit. Please be careful. There is much darkness ahead.
Shriek:
Yeeee! I'm free! FREE! Thank you, Shining Force!
Lowe:
Shriek! Where did you come from? And where are the others?
Shriek:
To honor your family, Dantom helped me survive. Most of the others were lost. But Lug may still be alive. He vanished during the Gundoll battle, and headed for Cypress.
Lowe:
Lug was pretty tough. Maybe we'll find Lug in Cypress. Come on, Nick and everyone! Cypress is just over these mountains!
Shriek joins the force
Nick and the Shining Force were cheered by the news about Lug. But it wasn't enough to lift the deepening gloom. They knew they would soon confront Woldol... face to face.
