Chapter 2: Target - Grans Tower!
Step by step and day by day,
Ian and his Force draw nearer to Grans Tower.
However, following their unexpected escape,
Mishaela is waiting for their arrival...
Lynx, how are the plans to capture Max progressing?
They're going well. If they continue as planned, we will soon have Max.
By the way, Eiku, what became of Ian and his party?
Well... I've been informed that they were able to defeat your guards... and after they reached Bedoe, Volcanon appeared to them.
Magus thinks that a search for them should be carried out, to ensure they don't disturb you while you raise all that energy...
Is everything going to be alright?
Hehehe! Don't worry. If by any chance they should get through Pacalon, we'll find them and consign them to oblivion!
You should go to Pacalon immediately!
I will... hehehe
By the way... what purpose will the old man from Hassan serve?
Haven't you guessed?
The old man has knowledge of ancient history, we can make use of this, and use the knowledge against Ian.
There's still some way to go before we will need this information, as we haven't yet found the ancient ruins. But... you'll be lucky if you can find them by standing there and boasting!
Mishaela paces back and forth.
But, Ian shouldn't prove to be a problem for us. It'll be mere child's play, especially when Max changes sides and becomes Ian's enemy, eh?!
I know you'll be really pleased when I return with him!
That is not your task... ... at least, not for now.
But, after I've defeated him, Eiku won't have a chance, hehehe!
What are you saying, Lynx?!
I'm not happy with my role in this plan. Why do I have to be the one to go after Ian?!
You heard me!
I don't know what makes you think you can apply for my job!
Even if he does, Lynx, it's your job to capture Max.
Right... that's settled!
Magus should be able to defeat Ian and his team without and problems, but it's your job to make sure Eiku, and if he fails then it's your turn.
Ah, that's a relief to know!
I'll bring him down, that's for sure - just you watch me!
Those are very promising words indeed!
Ian, you're really going to have to try your best, because we're watching you!
Ian and the Force were now intent
on heading north to Pacalon.
To get there, they must pass through a cave...
This cave is really long, isn't it?
It's just too narrow. I'm having trouble flying in here!
The way out can't be too far now...
Hey! I just felt a breeze on my skin...
Hold on Hawel.... why do you always act like you're some great know-it-all?
Well, we've got to do something. This cave may well come out somewhere in the region of Pacalon. When we get out, we really should take some time to have a well-deserved rest.
I think I just saw someone over there... a shadow moved.
This could mean danger...
We don't need that sort of thinking. It's nothing.
No, I'm sure it was somebody.
Oh, who can it be?
What great guard is this? Mishaela's squad is ahead of us... what shall we do?
Hey, did I hear somebody's voice just now?
Oooh, it was!
As Magus' search company, we must defend the cave's exit!
I, your master, command you to attack!
The cave is shaking!
Eek! The pillars!
It's the enemy!
Attack them, everyone - but be careful!
Master Magus! We've been discovered... th... they're here.... uuggghh
Orc Lord dies
It's just a matter of time until the enemy finds us...
Ian, we must make haste!
