Script typed up by: Trent
CHAPTER 1 - RUNEFAUST INVASION
Priest:
Ah, the good Max!
I had an odd dream last night.
Can you guess what it was?
IF YES
Priest:
Yes, Lord Max!
That's right. I dreamt about the first time I met you.
Lowe an apprentice here, found you lying on the beach.
That was a year ago now...
IF NO
Priest:
Well, I suppose...
Even the great Lord Max can't read people's minds!
I had a dream about the first time I met you.
Lowe and apprentice here, found you lying on the beach.
That was a year ago now...
You'd lost your memory.
I think it was fate that you came here.
Priest:
..... Wait a moment. I've forgotton something important.
Max:
What's wrong, Father?
Priest:
The road that lies before you is fraught with many dangers.
Should you come across a church along the way, make a "Record" of your journey.
(Normal greeting priest gives - Little Lost lamb! Speak your desire, and the powers of Light will surely grant it!)
Priest:
do you understand now how to make a "Record"?
No matter how difficult the road, record your progress and you shall not fail.
Inside church
Woman:
My helper's getting so forgetful. It's his age. I suppose it can't be helped.
Helper:
You know, there's no need to worry that you've lost your memory.
It happens to us all. Happy things, sad things...we forget it all when we get on a bit.
Outside church
Soldier:
I want to take sword lessons from Lord Varios!
...Well, I'd like to, but I'm so busy guarding the church, there's just no time.
I really envy you, Max!
Path to Guardiana castle
Girl (on path to guardina castle):
Guardiana Castle is up ahead. It's small, but it has a great history.
And people say it contains amazing treasure. Maybe it's some kind of jewel?
Old man:
You know, I'd like to go to Manarina. Yeah. There I could, er, do some studying...
Make myself into a great mage! I could do that. Just like the princess in the castle.
Cart Owner:
You there. Seen my cart around here? It's got no breaks, y'know.
One little nudge and it goes flying!
Mother:
My daughter's behaving a bit strangely lately.
Whatever could be the matter?
Father:
My wife's worried about our daughter. I'm not all that concerned, mind.
Married life has so many worries! I'd say free and single if I were you!
Girl #2 (in house):
Waah Waaah... I had a scary dream.
The town, everyone, burning... Houses. People. Everything. It was so scary!
after pushing the cart into somone
Hothead:
OW!! OK, who was it?!
Who rammed their cart into me?
Hothead:
Oi! Whaddya think you're doing? You won't get away next time!
Dog:
Woof... WOOF WOOOF!
Girl #3 (outside house with the dog):
That old man Gort hangs around the inn all day. I'm really sick of him.
Mother:
Pops used to be the best soldier in the land. Now he just hangs around.
Innkeeper:
It's really odd. I've had no guests at all recently.
This inn was thriving not so long ago, but now there's not a traveller in sight!
Soldier #1 (in small room near entrance):
Lord Max!
What an honour!
I just don't understand why you can't become a knight.
The world's gone mad!
The knights are all jealous of your swordsmanship.
talking to him again
Soldier #1:
I hate the Centaurs. They're so arrogant. They know they're stronger than us...
Ah! Um, don't tell anyone I said that.
Soldier #2 (guarding the entrance):
Castle Orders! It doesn't matter who you are, I can't let you through!
Soldier #3 (guarding the entrance):
Oh, I'm sorry. To be honost, I wish I didn't have to do this, but...
Shopkeeper:
Come in! Come in! What is it you're looking for? No, don't tell me.
We've been at peace, yeah? So no one's buying any weapons or travel items anymore.
...Ah, I wish I'd never bothered opening a shop!
talking to him again
Shopkeeper:
But listening to me complain won't help you, so here's a piece of advice...
If you buy an item you equip, make sure you move it to Equipped Items.
If you don't do that, it won't have any effect at all. What a waste!
Shop Assistant:
My boss has no motivation anymore.
If it's items you want, I can help.
usual item business
Shop Assistant:
Thanks! Stop again sometime!
Cowardly Man:
Aaaargh! No! No! I didn't see anything! Honoest! Spare me..... Oh!
I thought you were goblins, like those I've seen on the road to the Gate.
I'm not leaving the town wile those things are out there!
talking to him again
Cowardly Man:
Aaaargh! Oh it's you again.
talking to him yet again
Cowardly Man:
Aaaargh! ...Are you deliberately trying to scare me?!
Gort:
Hey there, youngster!
Want to hear my story?
IF NO
Gort:
I understand. I had things to do when I was your age. Perhaps some other time.
IF YES
Gort:
Thanks.
You're Max, right?
Great with a sword, I hear.
That's why the knights at the castle aren't keen on you...
Ha! Don't let them bother you.
All they care about is their own careers.
Bar owner:
Excuse me! Sir!
That old man's a pain. You should try and avoid him.
He disturbs my customers, moaning away all the time.
He's a total nuisance.
GUARDIANA CASTLE
Soldier (guarding entrance):
Welcome to Guardiana Castle!
Soldier #2 (guarding entrance):
Welcome to Guardiana Castle!
Sentry:
Warriors prepare for battle here at Headquarters.
You need permission to enter.
Soldier #3 (at knights' training ground):
This is the knights' training ground. You'd better not get too close...
Those guys don't like you at all. I mean, we're on your side of course...
Knight #1:
Yaah! Take that! I heard a rumour from a travelling merchant.
He said Runefaust forces are planning to attack. But it was just a rumour...
Knight #2:
Oi! What do you want? The likes of you have no right to talk to people like us!
Get ouf of here! Now!
Knight #3:
Some of the knights can be rather rude. I'm very sorry...
Knight #4:
Wars are few nowadays. I wonder if knights like us are of any use anymore...?
Knight #5:
Yaah! Take that! And that! And this too! Phew, training is tiring work.
A knight's pride can make him get carried away at times...
Worrying in a battle, really.
Knight #6:
Haaah! Urrghhh!
I'm just trying to decide on my battle cries...
Knight #7 (in room inside castle):
Oi! What are you up to! This is Guardiana Castle. You can't hang around here.
Old Man:
The view from the top of this tower is fantastic! You can see for miles.
Eh? The bottom of the tower?
Hmm, I don't really know about the room at the bottom.
Mage (inside bottom room):
You're interested in this room? No need to hide it.Everyone's the same.
But I have no idea about it. All I know ist hat this here is called "Machine".
I should think that those mages in Manarina might have a better idea...
talking to him again
Mage:
Machine...
A mysterious, ancient item from the time of the gods.
Old Man at Lookout Tower:
Mmm, what's this?
Oh, good lord!
Minister:
I've served the King ever since he was a child...
And yet he won't tell me a thing.
Hmm, it's very sad.
I've heard rumours that he's troubled by something. Do you know anything about it?
IF NO
Minster:
I thought as much... Maybe the Gate of the Ancients-
Er, nothing. Never you mind.
IF YES
Minister:
Well! You youngsters think you know everything!
Mae:
......
Don't talk to me...
I'm busy.
talking to her again
Mae:
......
Sentry #2:
Guarding treasure is awful. I get really nervous...
I want to switch shifts...
Sorry? What kind of treasure? Only Minister Ward knows that.
talking to him again
Sentry #2:
Even the King doesn't know what's in here.
Well, so rumour has it...
Sentry #3:
Forget it. You can't push your way in here! Get out!
King Guardiana:
...and so we summoned you, Varios.
Varios:
Mmm...... This is grave news indeed.
Speaking to men in the room before the King
Varios:
Max, you should speak to the king first.
Ward:
......
Nova:
Ah, Max. Will you hear what the king has to say?
King Guardiana:
Ah, Max! Come, I have something to discuss with you.
There is an aura of evil about the Gate of the Ancients, to the east of this castle. Fortunately, Nova, our most able strategist, was able to detect this aura in time. The Gate of the Ancients is where the relics of the gods are sealed. We must act to protct it! But if I dispatch the Knights, it will only cause the people to worry needlessly.
King Guardiana:
Varios, Nova, and Ward are the three most important men in the realm. Why don't you listen to what they have to say as well?
Nova:
The Gate of the Ancients...has existed since the Age of the Gods. And beyond its sealed portal lies the Legacy of the Gods. We, the people of Guardiana, were charged with protecting this Legacy.
Varios:
Max, we need you to lead a Force to the Gate of the Ancients.
It pains me to have to ask you to do such a thing, but......
Ward:
I'll--I'll never trust a man of unknown parentage such as you!
King Guardiana:
I agree with Varios. I want you to go to the Gate of the Ancients.
All I know of you is what Varios has told me... but I believe in you.
I can see it in your eyes - one who was born to fight. I feel I can trust you.
What say you? Will you accept?
IF NO
Max:
I'm sorry, but... I...I can't accept this mission.
King Guardiana:
What! You canno accept it?
Hmm...... If that is truly how you feel, then I am left with no choice.
King Guardiana:
I ask you once again, Max. Will you go to the gate for me?
IF YES
Max:
I accept.
I...I don't know how strong I really am, but...
The people of this kingdom have been so kind to me, and I want to repay their kindness.
King Guardiana:
Is that so? Then you accept! Now, gather your companions. Once you have done so, come and see me again.
if you talk to him again
King Guardiana:
Quickly, assemble your Force. You must make preparations.
Come back when your preparations are complete.
Nova:
Head to Headquarters and find some companions. Do you know where it is? The entrance is on the west side.
Ward:
A wretch like you... What was the king thinking?
Varios:
Thankyou, Max. The king is most pleased.
Maid:
Oh! It's so annoying! You must think so too, right? Right? Right?
IF NO
Maid:
...Charming! I hadn't even told you about it yet.
IF YES
Maid:
Exactly! Very annoying! There's this girl called Tao. She was a new maid here. But she had magical skills. She studied with Princess Anri and now she's castle mage. And I'm still just a maid. Huh! I'm getting sick of all this work!
Maid #2:
This is Anri's room. But the princess is in Manarina. Do you know of Manarina?
IF NO
Maid:
Manarina is the land of many amazing mages. It's a kind of mage nation!
Princess Anri has had magical talents since she was a child, so she's studying there.
When she comes back, she'll open a magic school here. How wonderful!
IF YES
Maid:
Wow! You're very clever! I like clever people!
Knight #7 (inside room in castle):
I heard it with my own ears! You're going to be given a great mission. What on earth are the King and Lord Varios thinking of... I can't understand it...
Mae:
Max...... It's not that I dislike you or anything, but... Since taking sides with you, my father Varios' post in the castle... It's a bit awkward. For some reason, Minister Ward really hates you.
if you talk to her again
Mae:
Don't come to the castle unless you have business here. You'll trouble my father.
Sentry #1:
I've been waiting for you! Quick! Get inside!1
Ken:
My name is Ken. I'm a knight. I'm still in training, though.
I...I really think you're the greatest, Max! ... but don't tell Mae, OK?
Tao:
I'm Tao the mage. I've still got a lot to learn, but I'll do the best I can!
Hans:
Ummm...I'm Hans. I'm an archer - you can tell? But, you see... I'm not very good at fighting. But it's the king's orders, so I guess I'll go with you.
Luke:
I'm Luke. I'm a figher. I joined the Knights to be like the legendary Gort.
I'm as tough as anybody! Put me in the front line anytime!
Kan, Tao, Hans, and Luke join the Shining Force!
Max:
Nice to meet you. I'm not used to this kind of work, but I'll do my best!
Lowe:
Hey! Wait for me!
Lowe:
You're going to the Gate of the Ancients, right? Take me with you!
I can cast heal magic and fight - anything you need! I won't take no for an answer!
Lowe joins the Shining Force!
Max:
Well...ok. I could use all the comrades I can get.
Lowe:
Heh heh heh. That's my man! You know a good thing when you see it!
Nova:
Well, well! It looks like you've found some companions.
Now you must report to teh king. I'll be waiting over there.
Sentry:
Good luck Lord Max!
Varios:
Good luck. I've been hearing strange rumours... I must say - protect the king. Some say they've seen goblins near the Gate of the Ancients. You take care of yourself.
King Guardiana:
Are you ready? Good! There is a carriage at the gates. That carriage will take you to the Gate of the Ancients. Ah, but before that, take this to help you prepare for the journey. I suggest you buy a "Herb" or two, just in case something happens.
[Recieved 100 gold coins]
King Guardiana:
Your carriage is waiting. Use it to travel to the Gate.
I'm counting on you!
Ward:
I'll say it again
Maid (in King's room):
Oh! You're Max? So the King has chosen you to go to teh Gate of teh Ancients? If it will help the king, then you must try hard. But not too hard. Think how sad your mother would be if you were hurt.
What? No memory...?
Oh, I didn't realise...... Well, anyway, good luck!
if you talk to her again
Maid:
There's a mountain hut near the Gate of the Ancients. If you get tired, you can rest there. The old man there will see you right.
Priest:
You're going to the Gate of the Ancients?! Well, if your mind's made up...
I bestow these words upon you... May the Light be With you. I hope it gives you strength.
Soldier #2 (at the entrance):
I already heard what's going on. Please be careful!
Soldier #3 (at the entrance):
This is awful. Try to stay out of danger. Retreat is an important tactic, you know. If you ever need to retreat, the Egress spell may come in handy.
OUTSIDE OF GUARDIANA
Nova:
Max, are you sure you're ready to leave for the Gate of the Ancients?
IF NO
Nova:
Very well, then. We'll depart once your preparations are complete.
IF YES
Nova:
Very well, then. Let's go!
CAVE
Max:
Where am I...?
Where's the wagon...?
Max:
...huh? ... Who's there?
Mawlock:
Now now! Don't look at me like that! Nothing fishy about me...
Well, maybe there is a little. I am Mawlock.
I have come to you to ask a favour.
Max:
A favour? What kind of...
Mawlock:
Cards. You see, there are cards in this world with mysterious powers.
You will have manyn chances to acquire these cards.
Search in various places and listen to what people say, and collect as many as you can. They will surely be of great help to you in the future.
Max:
So I should collect cards?
Mawlock:
Exactly. I'm sure you'll find them extremely useful. Now then, I must be going. I have many things to do.
Note:
slightly different script on second go through the game
BATTLE #1
Rune Knight:
Move it, you goblins! Isn't there a switch or something?
Rune Knight:
Hyaaa! Get a move on! There must be a key somewhere!
Rune Knight:
Grrr... All this searching and we still can't get this door open...
Rune Knight:
Hyaah! Get a move on! ... Huh? Wh-Who goes there?
Lowe:
What are these guys, anyway? ... They're g-g-goblins!
Tao:
And that knight's outfit... He's from Runefaust!
earthquake)
Max:
Wh--What was that tremor?
Rune Knight:
The gate is collapsing...?!
Whatever. Take those guys out! Then we can keep searching! Goblins, ATTACK!
Battle finished -
Rune Knight recieved -
Rune Knight:
...Y...you think you've won?
...Ha ha ha ha ha
E...even now, Lord Kane of Runefaust is mounting an attack on Guardiana...
Your country is already...
Long live King Ramladu!
Nova:
If what that Rune Knight was saying is true...
This is terrible! Max! Hurry! Back to the castle!
Max:
Right! Everyone, back to the castle!
MOUNTAIN HUT
Yogurt:
......
Gong:
I am the travelling monk Gong. I travel the continent in search of truth.
A night star led me here, where I have been awaiting your arrival.
Max:
You've been waiting for me? But ... why?
Gong:
Because it's fate.
Max:
......?
Gong:
Fate led me here to join forces with you. I am at your disposal?
Gong joins the Shining Force!
Max:
......?
What was that all about?!
Man at Mountain Hut:
Oh! It's unusual to see folks out here! Um, are you troubled at all? This may come as a surprise, but I used to be a priest.
So...
(normal priest greeting)
Granddaughter:
........
Lately there's been an odd creature near the hut. It's very strange-looking...
if you talk to her again
Granddaughter:
I know! I'll give you a present. Here you go!
Max got Gong's Card!
Granddaughter:
............
What could that creature be?! it's really odd-looking.
ALTERONE
if entering early
Soldier:
You! Who are you?! Get outta here! Go! Go!

BATTLE 2
Nova:
Max, that earthquake blocked the road back to the castle!
...We'll have to take the northern pass and fight our way through!
Max:
All right. I'm worried about Guardiana. Everyone, get ready to attack!
Rune Knight:
Look! Those fools from Guardiana have returned from the Gate!
No one enters until Lord Kane finds what he's looking for! Don't let anyone through!
Dwarf #1:
Aaaarrgh!
Dwarf #2:
Aaaarrgh!
END OF BATTLE #2
Nova:
Max, the enemies have all been whipped out. But I'm worried about Guardiana.
Come, we must hurry!
Soldier #2:
It's a disaster! The Runefaust army suddenly invaded our kingdom!
Soldier #3:
We... we fought as... as hard as we could. We've driven them off, but...
Max:
What about the townspeople? Are they all right?
Soldier #2:
Luckily there were almost no casualties among the townspeople... but still...
Soldier #3:
We've taken heavy losses and most of our knights are down.
Max:
How could this have happened...? While were were busy at the gate...
So that's it... That was their plan all along...
Soldier #2:
There might still be enemies around the castle. Watch your backs!
Soldier #3:
Is your group still outside? I'll send a messenger and get them to wait at HQ.
Lord Max, you go and see how things look at the castle.
...Please take care.
Soldier #2:
We'll stand guard here. You take the castle. Enemies may still be lurking!
Soldier #1:
I'd heard rumours... But Runefaust's Silver Knight ...... Kane!
He's a monster! We all fought him together, but he was unbeatable...
Innkeeper:
What a shock! Soldiers in armour coming all of a sudden!
They went on the rampage here and finally went off towards the castle.
Shopkeeper:
Grrrrr! Now I'm really angry with those Runefaust pigs!
I've been getting together things that may be of use. Let's do business!
Shop Assistant:
I can't fight. But the boss and I found some stuff you could use...
Bar Owner:
The Runefaust soldiers even stormed my premises...
I thought I'd be killed... But that old guy over there drove them out!
Gort:
The Runefaust army made a mess out of this town!
I'm not sayin' everybody that lived here was a saint... Heck! Lots of 'em made fun of me. But EVEN SO! But even so... I loved this town... I was born here, afterall.
I used to be a soldier! You gotta let me join you!
Max:
I...I can't just...
I mean, I was only supposed to be leading an investigation to the Gate...
Gort:
C'mon! Can't you grant an old man his last wish? Let me join up with you!
Luke:
Max! I say we let him join!
Gort is the pride of the Dwarves! A legend among fighters!
Things might get tough, but with Gort on our side, we'll be fine!
Max:
...All right. Pleased to meet you, Gort. Glad to have you with us!
Gort joins the Shining Force!
Gort:
It's settled, then! We'll head over to HQ and wait for you there, chief.
Old Man:
Oh, it's terrible! I tried to fight back but I was just too scared...
Oh, I'm useless, aren't I...? Even if I went to Manarina, I doubt I'd learn much...
Father:
Oh no! Not again! I...I'm not running away... Oh! It's you...
They attacked my place but I stayed put. I sent my family to the castle though.
This house is my castle! I'll defend it from anyone!
Man:
Huh! It's been a nightmare! You should be careful!
Dog:
Aa-oooh, ah-oooooh!
Granddaughter:
Mummy..... Why..... It's awful...Too awful...
I can't believe that even Grandpa Gort couldn't do anything.....
Soldier (outside church):
The church is safe. Wh-What...? It's okay. This wound's not...
church
Women:
Max! What on earth happened? What? Runefaust?
Why on earth did they come here from so far away...?
Helper:
Welcome back. You know, I've been thinking about you a lot.
what was I think? Ah, it's slipped my mind! Ask me again later.
Priest:
Oh! How good to see you! I've been so worried.
GUARDINA CASTLE
Soldier (at castle entrance):
Enemy knights are inside the castle! We've got no chance!
Soldier #2 (at castle entrance):
K-K-Kane of Runefaust is inside the castle... The King may be in danger...
Varios:
How many times must I tell you? We do not have a key to unlock the seal!
The Gate of the Ancients must never be opened! There is no key!
Kane:
..Hmph. Maybe you are telling the truth. But I already have what I want.
...The "Light Sabre"! This is a rare item, indeed! Truly a magnificent prize!
The finest blade in Rune and the mirror of my "Dark Sabre"!
Varios:
The Light Sabre? There's no such thing here!
Kane:
Then what do you think I'm holding in my hand now? But enough of this. I have one more prize to claim
Varios:
Not so fast! Varios, captain of the Knights of Guardiana, will not allow it!
Kane:
Dark Sabre!
Release your dark flame!
Max:
...Master!
Mae:
...Father!
Kane:
What are you doing here? This is no place for a young girl. You must leave! Now!
Mae:
I am Mae, daughter of Varios, captain of the Knights!
In the name of the Knights of Guardiana, I challenge you to a duel! En garde!
Kane:
Impressive... You actually parried my blow.
What's your name, boy?
Are you a knight too?
Max:
My name is Max! I am an apprentice of Lord Varios!
Kane:
...Max? That name...sounds familiar...
Ugh...
What is this...
this pain...in my head...?
There is no key for the seal. That's all I needed to know. I have no further business here!
Mae:
Max, come quickly! The king is wounded!
King Guardiana:
Ah, it's you Max... and Mae as well...
Varios tried to protect me, but it was already too late...
Listen to me, young warrior. Even I do not know... what the Legacy of the Gods is...
But I know that if it should fall into evil hands Rune will be...no more!
The ancient castle wherein it sleeps was sealed by the gods... But...
There exists a secret that can break the seal...
You must find that secret before Runefaust does... and protect it!
Do not fail me, Max! You are Guardiana's last hope....
Max:
You Majesty...
King Guardiana...
Leave it to me!
I don't know how far I can go, or how much I'm capable of, but...
For the kingdom...
For the people...
I'll fight to the very end!
King Guardiana:
Mae, daughter of Varios... Hear my words...
Help Max in any way you can...and become a great warrior like your father.
Mae:
Your Majesty...
King Guardiana:
Max... Tell my daughter Anri... so strong... so kind...
That I will always be... .. with her...
...
...
The King dies
Mae:
N...no... Father... and the king... How could this happen...
Max! I've made up my mind!
We must solve the riddle of the Legacy before Runefaust! And protect the secret!
...Max, up until now, I've been quite cold towards you.
I'm sorry. Can you still accept me as a comrade?
Max:
Of course! I can't think of anyone I'd rather have by my side!
Mae joins the Shining Force!
Mae:
Thanks.
I'll be waiting at HQ.
Here's what I've heard
Minster Ward:
The Silver Knight, pride of Runefaust.
The look in his eyes made my blood run cold. I was too scared even to draw my sword.
Max....
There's something I must apologise to you for.
The Light Sabre that Kane stole...well, it belonged to you...
Max:
Wh- What did you say?
Minister Ward:
A year ago, when you washed up here, a bag was washed ashore, too.
Before Lowe discovered you, a knight found the bag, with a mysterious sword inside it.
Lighter than a feather, yet stronger than steel. Totally out of this world.
I thought it must be a weapon of the gods and I hid it away. I'm sorry, Max!
talking to him again
Minister Ward:
Please, leave the rest to us.
You do as the King orders and carry out your mission. That's all I ask for.
Maid #1:
You're going on a trip? To protect lots of countries, not just Guardiana...
Tao's going too, right? Then give her this message.
...Tell her I said good luck. And to come home safe.
talking to her again
Maid #1:
Now don't push Tao too hard, okay?
Maid #2:
If you're going off on your travels, then you'll be going to Manarina, right?
IF NO
Maid #2:
Really? What a shame...
IF YES
Maid #2:
Aah, I thought as much! You should find Princess Anri.
I'm sure that she'll be of great help to you.
Maid #3 (in king's room):
I heard about the King. You must be careful on your travels.
No drinking unboiled water... Well, just be careful, okay? I won't forget you.
Knight #7:
Argh! This is awful! I can't believe all my men have been defeated...
Please Max! I mean, Lord Max! Avenge this terrible act!
Mage:
Legacy of the Gods? Ask the old man at the church about that. He'll know.
Long ago he used to work as a mercenary. He travelled all of Rune by himself.
Watchtower Man:
Blasted telescope! What use is it if I couldn't spot the Runefaust army with it? Have to rely on the old eyes from now on...
Woman:
I hope my husband's ok. Had to stay behind to protect the house.
Girl who had the dreams:
Aaaaah! Aaaah! I was so scared. My dream... My dream... It came true!
Minister:
I see. The King... I can't believe he has been taken to heaven before me...
No! This is no time for tears! Please go to Alterone. There you will find allies.
Sentry (amongst treasures):
Kane made off with something from the treasury.
...He seemed really worked up.
I wonder what he could have taken...
Talking to him again
Sentry:
There are still some things left. Please take anything you need.
Soldier (at castle entrance):
I beg you, protect the future of Rune!
Soldier #2 (at entrance):
Lord Max! Good luck!
Soldier (outside church):
Max! I'm going to follow your example and defend this country well!
Priest:
I've figured it out. You are fated to set off on a journey...
And on that journey you will also search for your memory. ... It will be a tough time.
But don't lose heart. The light of hope shines on your path!
Woman in church:
I can't believe that the King and Lord Varios are dead. What will become of us?
You're the only ones we can rely on now!
Helper:
I'm so glad you came to see me. Do you want to hear something interesting?
IF NO
Helper:
Fair enough. Well, hope to see you again some time.
IF YES
Helper:
One year ago, when I first saw your face... I had a very strange feeling.
Despite your youth, your face showed you had been on a long journey.
You are a traveller. And you will be making another long journey soon.
You will gain many things from this journey. You must set off with a brave heart.
Oh yes... Long ago, I travelled all over the Rune Continent.
I heard... That somewhere in Rune is an ancient land of the gods.
If you can find this land, you will recover your lost memory. ...That's what I believe.
Old Man:
Why did the Runefaust army attack us? There's nothing here to steal!
Father:
We'll defend our land. Don't you worry. Go off on your journey. Good luck!
Granddaughter:
Tell Grandpa Gort... I'm behind you all the way, so fight hard!
Here, take this!
Max got Gort's Card!
Dog:
Woooof! Woooof!
Bar Owner:
It seems that Runefaust bunch are still on the prowl nearby.
If you're going outside town, make sure you're prepared.
Innkeeper:
Alterone? That land lies to the northeast.
But it's a horrible country, full of toffs. I don't know if they'll help you...
Traveller (in Inn):
I am a traveller. What has happened here?! What? Runefaust?
But that's so far east! They must've been determined to move their army so far.
Soldier #1:
Alterone is one of Guardian's allied nations. They're sure to help you.
Although it's possible that they must be under attack from Runefaust....Right?
talking to him again
Solider #1:
Don't let down your guard even when you reach Alteron. You never know...
Soldier #2:
Good luck, Lord Max!
Soldier #3:
We will protect all the people of Guardiana!
BATTLE 3
Nova:
Max! As I feared, Runefaust has set a trap for us.
Our forces are too small. We can't afford to divide them.
Besides, our objective is not to fight, but to reach Alterone.
We could use a decoy to lure the enemy away, allowing Max to reach Alterone.
You don't always have to fight in order to win the battle, you know.
Max:
Okay!
Listen, everyone! We can't afford to get separated.
We'll take them on one by one.
END OF BATTLE
Nova:
Max, the enemies have all been defeated. Let's hurry to Alterone.
ALTERONE
Young Man:
Welcome to Alterone, stranger!
Old Woman:
People say there's a secret passage in the castle that the King built.
Obviously if anything happens he just wants to save himself. How selfish!
Mishaela:
I am the famous fortune teller, Mishaela. Want to see your future?
IF NO
Mishaela:
Well, people aren't always what they seem. So long, coward!
IF YES
Mishaela:
The road northwards, to Rindo and Manerina... A large force gathers there.
The knights of Runefaust... You do not have the power to defeat them.
I cannot see light in your future. You must end your journey now.
Lovestruck Man:
That fortune teller's a real beauty... Ah, she's exactly my type.
She looks a bit pale, mind. But that can be attractive...
Man:
A Runefaust invasion, you say? They'd never come all this way!
Customer:
I hate this shop. Full of tacky tourist stuff!
Customer #2:
Is there nothing a bit more high class? A gold purse for instance?
Old Woman #2:
Look at this! My false gold tooth! Dazzling, isn't it.
Item seller:
No place easier than here to do business! They just love expensive things.
Woman:
Watch out! Don't get mud on my beautiful new dress!
Max pushes a cart into the women
Woman:
Eek! Who are you?!
Woman:
My...My new dress is covered with mud! You clumsy oaf!
Woman:
Take this!
the woman pushes Max into the river
once Max gets back out again
Woman:
Ah! My new dress! I won't forgive you for this! Ever!
Priest's Deputy:
The Priest's been summoned to the castle. I always wanted to stand here!
Woman #3:
Something's going on in the castle, I tell you. Lots of strangers around...
Laid-back Man:
The King's a fool. He made a 'secret passage', but everyone knows about it. It's not a secret at all!
Lonely Old Man:
Money makes the world go round, youngster. Don't you forget it!
Lovesick Man:
There's a girl called Khris at the castle... Oh! How I love her...
But lately she won't come out. I wonder if something's happened inside the castle...
Woman #4:
It's a bit off, all these strangers coming and going at the castle lately.
Old Man:
Oi! You're not allowed here! It's my land! I'm building a mansion!
Fisherman:
Ahh, fishing. It always distracts me from the problems of having too much money... Oh! Oh oh oh! I think I got a bite!
Hey, would you mind standing behind me and pulling? This is a big'un!
Max pulls
Fisherman:
Yep, a big one! Pull one more time, will you?
Max pulls again
Fisherman:
One more time!
Max pulls again
Fisherman:
That's it! Got 'er!
Fisherman:
Huh? It's just a gold bar. Piece of junk! Thought I'd got rid of it!
Fisherman:
Sigh... I'm not giving up until I catch a fish.
if you talk to him again
Fisherman:
Here, fishee fishee fishee...
Girl:
Are you from Guardiana? A man who used to be a knight there is working at the inn.
Old Man #2:
This land was poor once. But then crystals were found in the mountains.
And the money rolled in. It's good that everyone's rich, but it doesn't feel right...
If Max tries to enter Alterone Castle
Soldier:
What? Guardiana's been attacked? By Runefaust? Rubbish!
Get outta here, you good for nothin'!
Soldier #2:
You must leave! This is an exclusive castle.
There's no way I can let you in without an introduction from someone.
Soldier #3:
Go home! Hm? You want to go inside the castle that much?
Soldier:
You heard him! Get lost!
If someone trustworthy could introduce you I would consider it... Come to think of it...
I'm sure there was someone in town who'd been an apprentice knight in Guardiana...
Merchant:
Huh? Hey, aren't you... Max?
IF NO
Merchant:
Huh? That's weird. I could have sworn you were...
IF YES
Merchant:
So it IS you! Until recently, I was training to be a knight in Guardiana.
But I just wasn't cut out for it. So I gave up and started a business here instead.
You're Varios' pupil, aren't you? How is everyone? Eh? What's that you say?
The Knight's were annihilated? I see. I'll go to the castle and try to get you some help.
Merchant leaves and returns
Merchant:
Good, you're still here! I went to the Castle and told them about Guardiana.
I'm sure they'll be happy to help you out. Why don't you pay the castle a visit?
if you talk to him again
Merchant:
I can't just sit here! I'm getting my things and going back to Guardiana.
ALTERONE CASTLE
Soldier:
The King permits you to proceed. But don't poke around too much in the castle!
Soldier #2:
...Oi! Stranger!
Soldier #3:
Oi! Stranger! Stop hanging around here!
Old woman:
Did you know that there's a secret underground passage in the castle?
IF NO
Old Woman:
Oh dear... Ha ha! Nothing. Never mind.
IF YES
Old Woman:
The entrance to the passage is around here. But I just can't find it...
I thought it could be my escape if I ever need one. Ah! If only I could find it!
Khris' relative:
Khris! Khris! Where are you?! I'm badly injured, I tell you!
You! Are you aware of Khris' wearabouts?
IF NO
Khris' relative:
Hmph! Totally useless! Just like everyone else around here!
IF YES
Khris' relative:
In that case, go and get her for me! I've sprained my ankle!
Ah! Ouch! Ouch! I'll die if I'm left like this!
Soldier #4:
What is so relaxing...
Guarding the castle? I leave that to the sentries.
Those guys guarding the gates are solid. They'll be no problems with them around.
Bar Owner:
Relax. Take a seat and shovel down some food!
Soldier #5:
Hmm. A fine suit of armour's all well and good, but I can't stand the weight!
Soldier #6:
It's paradise here. Sit down, take it easy! We all do.
Soldier #7:
Sleep, eat and play games. This is the life!
Soldier #8:
Nobody is allowed in here. There are important guests inside.
under the castle
Soldier #9:
Oi! Keep moving, scum!
Rune Knight:
...
Soldier #9:
What? A Rune Knight? You must be seeing things.
...Here, look.
Soldier #9:
See? No one there!
if you talk to him again
Soldier #9:
Seen enough? Then go home!
Khris:
......
Take great care when you meet the King.
I'm sorry.
That's all I can say right now...
if you talk to her again
Khris:
......
I'm sorry.
I'm truly sorry.
Knight:
Our King is a great man. If you need help you should try talking to him.
Knight #2:
What? Runefaust attacked Guardiana? No one in town believed you?
Hehheh!
Ahem.
Talk it over with our King. He's sure to help you!
Old Man:
So you're Max? I heard about you from one of Guardian's Band of Knights.
If you have a problem, you should talk it over with the King.
King Alterone:
...
Are...are you serious?
Runefaust invaded Guardiana looking for clues about the Legacy of the Gods?
And now their armies are headed for my kingdom?
Hmm. This is most alarming. I must discuss it with my ...adviser. Follow me.
Soldier #8:
The King is waiting for you. Hurry!
down below
Rune Knight:
...
Rune Knight:
...
King Alterone:
Please forgive me. This is for the good of Alterone.
Kane:
You... I met you in Guardiana. Max, wasn't it?
Max:
Kane!
...I see now. You came in and threatened the people of this country...
Kane:
Precisely. The king of this land is a shrewd individual.
He knew he'd never win if he tried to fight - and so he cooperated... Seize them!
Destroy the remnants of Guardiana!
Max:
Forget it! You think we're just going to let you get away with this?
Kane:
Don't move! One more step and the king dies! Got it?
Max:
...
King Alterone:
...This wasn't part of our agreement! The townspeople were to be spared!
Kane:
...Oh, really? You'll escape with your life... That I did promise.
However... I said nothing about the others. What are you waiting for? Take them away!
But you, Max...
I'll leave you alive.
You might just know something about Dark Dragon--I mean, about the Legacy of the Gods.
Max is taken away and thrown in prison
Priest:
You've been arrested too? I'm a priest.
The Runefaust Army are not to be trusted. That's what I told the King...
And then I was thrown in jail...
I may be behind bars, but I'm still a priest. I'll do all I can to help you.
searching the prison bars
Max:
...These things are solid. No way to break through...
Huh? ...I hear footsteps.
Khris appears
Khris:
Ah...excuse me...
I overheard the king and the others talking... But I was too frightened to speak up.
Really, I'm so sorry. I can't stand to see you end up like this...
Hold on a moment. I'll open it for you.
Khris opens the the jail door
Khris:
Please, you must save our kingdom. The Runefaust troops have stopped pretending - they're tearing the town apart, trying to flush out your friends.
My name is Khris. I'm a healer attached to this castle. I'm not very strong, but I can heal wounds. I'll fight alongside you. Please, lend me your strength!
Max:
I understand what you're saying. I'll see to it that the town is safe.
I can't just let Runefaust do whatever they want!
Khris joins the Shining Force!
Khris:
Thank you so much! We'll get caught for sure if we go out this way.
Khris:
it's here somewhere... The passage leading to town...
Ah, here it is!
OK, I'll be waiting at HQ. Father! We'll be back, I promise!
Priest:
There's no need to worry about me.
You should concentrate on your own mission.
Battle #4
Kane:
...Huh?
Max, you...! So you excaped from prison, eh?
No matter. The tattered remnants of Guardiana are no match for our army!
Come, taste the power of my Dark Sabre!
...?
Messenger:
Lord Kane! A message from Lord Darksol!
"We have new information pertaining to the Legacy of the Gods. Return at once!"
Kane:
What? ...Oh, all right. Tell him I'm coming!
Messenger:
Yes, my lord!
Kane:
I must be going. I'll leave this to you. Take care of them, once and for all!
Max:
Khris! This is your first battle, so take it easy!
Don't try to come to the front. Stay back and heal our wounds!
Khris:
All right! I will!
After Battle #4
Nova:
Max, the enemy has been completely destroyed. And the town was hardly touched.
I'm worried about where the Runefaust army is heading.
Let's talk to King Alterone and find out what's going on.
Khris:
Max, I want to thank you again for coming to my aid.
I don't know how much help I'll be, but I'll do all I can to assist you.
Max:
Wh--? Does that mean...?
Khris:
Yes.
I've made up my mind. I'm going with you!
I want to use my power to help people. It's what I've always dreamed of.
And now, finally, I've found the path I must take in life. I'm not a burden, am I?
Max:
Of course not! Don't be silly. But can you really just up and leave?
Don't the people here need you?
Khris:
No need to worry. This country doesn't lack resources.
There are many who would be happy to take mu job at the castle.
Max:
Really?
All right then. Welcome aboard.
Lowe:
Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha!
I'm Lowe! Pleased to meet you! I'm a healer, just like you!
I think the gods have finally sent me the girl of my dreams! And she's a healer!
So...what are your hobbies?
What's your favourite food?
I like sweets! All kinds!
Khris:
Um...uh...
Lowe:
What? What's wrong?
Khris:
Max, I think I'll wait at Headquarters.
Lowe:
What's up with her?
Ah heh heh. Am I blushing?
Max:
...
ALTERONE
Young Man:
Thanks so much for what you did to help Alterone!
Old Woman:
Thanks to the King's secret passage, you managed to escape, huh?
I suppose even he has his uses... Ha haha.
Lovestruck Man:
That fortune teller's disappeared. Ah! Where can she have got to?
Man:
So it seems the tales of Runefaust invasoion weren't a joke after all...
Customer:
So! You're the ones who helped us, are you? You don't look very strong.
Customer #2:
While you're at it, why not go to Manarina? It's to the west of Rindo.
People say that they use magic there all the time, so you'll probably find a great mage!
Old Woman #2:
Thank you for saving our country. To thank you, here's a gold ...
.. tooth for you to look at! Ooh! Dazzling!
Item seller:
Ah! I was scared! The fighting started totally out of the blue!
Guy from Guardiana:
I'm going back to Guardiana. I must do what I can to help.
Woman:
Watch out! Don't get mud on my beautiful new dress!
pushing the cart into her
Woman:
Eek! Who are you?!
Woman:
My...My new dress is covered with mud! You clumsy oaf!
Woman:
Take this!
Max is pushed into river
coming back out...
Woman:
Ah! My new dress! I won't forgive you for this! Ever!
Priest:
Ah, the good Max! Do you remember me? I'm the priest you met in jail.
Thanks to you, peace was restored in Alterone. I'm behind you all the way!
Deputy Priest:
The priest's back safe and sound. But now I'm just deputy again.
Woman #3:
I heard the knights of Runefaust. They said they had to hurry to Rindo.
I wonder what they want there?
Man:
I won't let Runefaust get away with this! I'll help you!
What? Right now?
Uh, maybe you could wait 10 years or so?
Lonely Old Man:
Rindo is just like here. Money is the be all and end all. Remember that.
Lovesick Man:
Ah! Khris is leaving on a journey! And I never had a chance to...
Perhaps it's not meant to be. I don't need this anymore...
Here, you take it.
Max got Khris' card!
talking to him again
Broken-hearted Man:
Ah! What can I do to lift my spirits...
...Khris!
No! I have to put that name out of my head...
Woman #4:
Goodness! You fought the Runefaust Army!
Wouldn't want to meet them on a dark night!
Old Man:
What! War?! And I thought that peace in this land would last forever.
Girl:
Thank you. You're the ones who drove away the Runefaust Army, right?
ALTERONE CASTLE
Soldier #1:
There's a very strong soldier in the Runefaust Army called General Elliot.
A Dragonewt. One of the few left of his kind, the strongest race of all.
Soldier #2:
The Runefaust Army..? Their country used to be so small until just recently...
Then the army suddenly grew...
I wonder what on earth could have happened?
Soldier #3:
Thanks!
You saved the castle!
Khris' relative:
This is just preposterous! How can Khris leave the castle?!
And I treated her so well!
How could she want more?!
Maid:
Have you seen Khris recently?
IF NO
Maid:
Oh! Really? She said she was leaving the castle to go with you.
I see.
It must have just been an excuse to stop working here.
IF YES
Maid:
I thought so. She's travelling with you, isn't she?
A journey to distant lands...
How lovely. So romantic!
Soldier #4:
Watching you fight was inspiring. No more sitting around all day for me!
Soldier #5:
Good job, Max!
We'll be on guard from now on!
Soldier #6:
Before you set off on your way, listen to what the townspeople have to say.
They may tell you something useful.
Bar owner:
Well, I hope you're proud of yourself! My business is ruined...
Soldier #7:
We obviously have more work to do...
Soldier #8:
When you're in Rindo you should take a look at the playhouse.
I heard a really interesting show just started there.
Maid #2:
Are you heading for Rindo now? Rindo has a circus, you know!
Knight:
Forgive me! I too allowed myself to be bullied!
Knight #2:
I'm ashamed. Just hearing the name of Kane of Runefaust, I was so afraid...
The King might seem weak, but he was doing it for us. Please try to understand!
Old Man:
Kane of Runefaust said something that's been bothering me...
"Dark Dragon wakes soon"...
I'm sure Kane's looking for the Legacy of the Gods...
That and Dark Dragon. What could the connection be?! Do you know of the Dragon?
IF NO
Old Man:
Dark Dragon...
is a terrifying beast that sleeps under Rune.
If Dragon awakes, it will be the end of the world. That is what legend tells us.
IF YES
Old Man:
You do? Scary, eh?
King Alterone:
Ah, I never dreamt it would come to this...
I did what they said because I thought it would be the best for my people.
And yet they still tried to drag the castle and Alterone into war...
I'm sorry. Can you forgive me?
IF NO
King Alterone:
Oh...
...You won't forgive me?
I suppose it's to be expected.
IF YES
King Alterone:
Oh! Really? Then I will lend you all the fighting power of my country!
Well, I wish I could offer you that, but actually...
I used too much money on luxuries and now there's not even one decent weapon left.
I know it's not the same, but I made an underground passage to Rindo. Use it any time.
It seems that the Runefaust Army are headed for Rindo.
They'll probably go back to Runefaust from there by boat.
Oh yes, that's right...
The entrance to the passage...
It's next to the waterfall in this castle. Look for the dragon statue.
if you talk to him again
King Alterone:
So you want to know of the Legacy of the Gods and the Gate of the Ancients?
In that case, you should go to Manarina after Rindo.
The Great Mage Otrant of Manarina is sure to know something.
Did you find the passage yet? Look for the dragon statue near the waterfall.
Max examined the dragon relief.
...There is a chain inside the dragon's mouth.
Pull it?
IF YES
Max pulled the chain!
Pursuing the Runefaust army and seeking the Legacy, the Force continued its journey.
What would they find in Rindo, and further still in fabled kingdom of Manarina?
None among them were yet aware of the destiny that lay ahead.
...Meanwhile....
Far to the east, in Runefaust...
CHAPTER 1
RUNEFAUST INVASION
Epilogue
Ramladu's castle
Darksol:
...and so, Your Highness, I sent a party to reconnoitre, but as I feared, the western gate protected by Guardiana is sealed as well. Perhaps we should probe the eastern gate, which lies in our territory, and look for a way to break the seal.
Ramladu:
I see...yes. I'll leave that to you then, Darksol.
Elliot:
...
Darksol:
Thank you, my lord.
Rune Knight:
Princess Narsha, stop! I cannot allow this!
Narsha:
Let me go! Get your hands off me~ I have to speak to my father...
Ramladu:
Narsha! What's all this about? This is no way for a lady to behave!
Narsha:
Please forgive my intrusion, father. But I had to see you...
Please, listen to me, just for once!
What were you thinking? Attacking Guardiana...
I can't believe this!
I can't believe that my father would send his armies to invade a kingdom like that!!
You've changed somehow...Since...It's all been since that mage Darksol showed up!
Darksol:
Heh heh heh heh. Amusing, my lady. Your wit is impressive.
If I didn't know better, I'd say you were accusing me of controlling the King's mind.
Narsha:
Aren't you, though? Father, please, wake up!
Ramladu:
Me...?
You want me...to wake...
...Wh...?
Where... where am I?
...who...am I?
Narsha:
Father!
Darksol:
Your highness! What has come over you? Look into my eyes...
Ramladu:
...
...It's nothing.
Narsha!
Narsha:
Y...yes, Father?
Ramladu:
Leave us. Now. You have no voice in these matters. I cannot be wrong!
Narsha:
But...
Ramladu:
I said LEAVE! Are you deaf? Take her away!
Narsha:
Father
Rune Knight:
Princess, please return to your chamber.
In Narsha's Room
Narsha:
So it's true... It's all the work of Darksol...
Everything's changed for the worse since that magician arrived.
And Father must be under his control...
two mages appear
Narsha:
...!
Who...who are you?
How dare you enter without...
Mage #1:
I beg your pardon. We come to deliver a message from Lord Darksol.
Mage #2:
He says he can no longer tolerate your presence and must ask you to leave...
Narsha:
Leave?
You mean the castle?
Mage #1:
No, not the castle.
This earth... this mortal coil.
Mage #2:
Lord Darksol thinks that heaven would be better suited to one so beautiful as you.
Narsha:
...!
Mage #1:
You will not feel pain. You'll simply fall asleep...
Mage #2:
...never to wake up!
Mawlock appears
Mage #2:
Who are you?
Mawlock:
Greetings, gentlemen. You may call me Mawlock.
I am the type of man who simply cannot resist a damsel in distress...
Especially the fair maiden type...
Now, let's get down to business.
Mawlock defeats the mages
Narsha:
...Thank you. But who are you? Why did you save me...?
Mawlock:
My name is Mawlock. The cards of fate and power are mine to control
Narsha:
Fate...and power...?
Mawlock:
That's right. This world seems to have strayed from its true destiny.
The path it now treads is not the one that was intended.
And I think it may have something to do with the black dragon who stirs, even now...
Narsha:
I'm sorry. I don't understand a single word you're saying. But...
I do know that you are very strong. Please, you must help me.
This is all Darksol's doing. You must capture him!
And my father...
Please bring back the kind loving father I used to know!
Mawlock:
Hmm... Regrettably, not even I can accomplish these things alone.
In fact, I very rarely ever do any of the fighting myself. No, the ones who must fight...
...is you!
Narsha:
M...me?
There must be some mistake. I'm not...
Mawlock:
Oh, really? So you're too weak...is that what you're saying? Nonsense!
Have you forgotten? You carry the blood of Ramladu in your veins.
The power to give the restorative energy of the earth to those who need it
And you must use it to aid the warriors you will soon be meeting.
Narsha:
I'm...going to meet them?
Mawlock:
Yes. They are still few in number, but one day they will be known as the Shining Force. Now go, my lady. I will see you safely out of the castle.
But beyond that, you will have to forge your own path. Go to the west.
Narsha:
All right, then. For Father's sake...and for the people of this kingdom.
Mawlock:
Bravo!
Ho ho, it looks like we've got company. Best not to tarry...
Well then, Princess Narsha. Shall we get going?
outside
BATTLE #5
Dark Mage:
Our prey is here! Don't get your guard down, even if it is a little girl!
Lord Darksol's orders are to take her dead or alive. He doesn't care which!
Don't let her escape! If we fail, we forfeit out lives!
Narsha:
What do I do now...?
Where is Mawlock...?
..How am I going ot get myself out of here...?
I can't let myself fall apart!
I am the daughter of Ramladu!
I made a vow...that until I met (sp.?) the Shining force, I would not allow myself to die.
And I don't intend to!
DURING BATTLE #5
Narsha:
Huh?
What's that noise?
Narsha:
Enemy reinforcements?
Zuika:
Friend, not foe. I felt some... warmth within your heart.
That's what woke me up.
Narsha:
...
Zuika:
And that's why I'm helping you.
My name is...Zuika...
I have nothing....
only the will to fight.
END BATTLE #5
If defeated during battle
Narsha:
Aaaaaah....
No... not now...
I can't be beaten already...
......
...
Narsha:
...
Why am I...
...Did...
Did you...
Did you save me?
Mawlock:
That's right.
Narsha:
Thank you. If you hadn't been there, I would have been lost.
Mawlock:
No need to thank me. But know this...
You may not be so lucky next time. Try to be more careful.
Narsha:
...All right. I will.
Mawlock:
Greater perils await on your way to the west.
...Are you ready? If you're turning back, now is the time.
Narsha:
No. I'm going.... West. To meet the forces of light.
I might never see this kingdom again... but I must go.
I must save my father!
If battle is won
Narsha:
...
I think that should do it...
We've defeated them all.
Thank you...Zuika, right? Thank you for saving me.
If you hadn't been there, I'd have been killed for sure.
Zuika:
No thanks are needed. I have been revived... in order to fight.
So I will help you.
Wherever you go...
is where I will go.
Narsha:
Wherever I go...
...west! To meet up with the forces of light!
I might never see this kingdom again...
but I must go.
I must save my father!
Ramladu's castle
Ramladu:
The Legacy...
So Guardiana didn't have the key to the riddle, either...
Darksol:
Please accept my most humble apologies, your highness.
Ramladu:
All this talk of yours... You would not lie to me, would you?
This Legacy... It sounds like the stuff of legends...
but does it really exist...?
Darksol:
I am sure of it. And once it is in your possession...
The entire world will be within your grasp, my liege.
Ramladu:
Yes...excellent. By the way, about Narsha...
Darksol:
...Your highness, how many times must I tell you?
You would do well to forget Princess Narsha. I believe it is in your best interests...
Ramladu:
Y...yes, of course. Let's forget about Narsha. You've got to get the Legacy!
Darksol:
Leave it to me. If the western gate in Guardiana will not open, then so be it.
We will find a way to open the eastern gate, here in Runefaust.
Leave everything to me, your humble servant, Darksol...
