Script typed up by: Trent
CHAPTER 3 - SECRET WEAPON OF RUNEFAUST
Guided by Balbaroy and Amon, the Shining Force reached the mountainous land of Bustoke.
There, they found a town hewn out of the steep side of a mountain...
To their amazement, there was not a single male inhabitant to be seen...
BUSTOKE
Girl:
Waaah! Waaaah! Daddy! Where are you?
Waaah! Waaaaaaaaah!
Girl #2:
My father was one of the ones taken off to the quarry. Please bring him back!
Kockichi's wife:
That Runefaust! They took away all the men who could work!
Rindo Merchant:
We are the people of Rindo.
We opened up a shop in this land for you, Max.
(talking to him again)
Rindo Merchant:
If you see anything you need, just take it.
You'll have to pay for it, mind.
Woman near the quarry:
Don't go that way! That road leads to the quarry!
You'll be forced to work there by Runefaust, like everyone else!
Woman #2:
All of the men were taken off to Bustoke Quarry...
All but Zylo, who's crazy. Bustoke's in such a mess...
Girl #3:
I'm sorry. Runefaust Army orders. No one is to pass through this way.
They'll punish me for letting you through...
Diane:
First, listen to that girl over there. Then come talk to me.
Diane's mother:
I've been waiting for the warriors of the Shining Force.
Is that you?
IF NO
Diane's mother:
Really? So it was just a rumour then. We need heroes badly!
IF YES
Diane's mother:
I knew it! So there is still some hope for us yet!
All of the men in our country were taken away to the quarry to work for Runefaust.
They're trying to dig up the ancient weapon known as the Laser Eye.
Please do something. Diane can lead you to the quarry.
If Zylo were sane, he could surely help you.
Diane:
Are you going to rescue the men? Then I'm going with you.
I'll show them I can fight just as well as Lord Zylo!
(Diane joins the Shining Force)
Diane:
If you're going to the quarry to rescue the men, then put me in the battle.
Promise me you'll put me in! Until then, I'll be waiting at headquarters.
Diane's mother #2:
Poor, poor Zylo... Do you want to hear about him?
IF NO
Diane's mother #2:
Oh well, it's your loss!
IF YES
Diane's mother:
A while ago... General Balbazak of Runefaust came here, to Bustoke.
He put drugs in the drinking water. If didn't affect me, but Zylo...
He went crazy, and we had to lock him away to protect ourselves!
Ah, poor Zylo!
Old Man:
The Pao Bridge is in the valley that connects Bustoke and Pao.
The Runefaust Army is gathering there. You must be careful.
Diane's mother #3:
Zylo's in here. But it's impossible to talk to him...
Ah, if only we had some Lunar Dew, Zylo could be saved...
Woman #3:
My husband was taken away before he finished the house. It's only half-done!
Alchemist:
I'm the famous Stetla, medicine maker for 40 years!
...Do you want something?
IF NO
Alchemist:
Oh. Well, I have enough to do already!
IF YES
Alchemist:
Well! First you must do something for me.
Alchemist:
To tame the wild heart of Zylo, you need Lunar Dew.
You only need one ingredient.
A stone... A brilliant Moonstone is all you need...
But...
But the Moonstone can only be found in Bustoke Quarry. Can you get it for me?
Woman near the quarry:
Thanks! You're gonna go to the quarry and rescue everybody, right?
BATTLE 11
Skeleton:
Master Mage...
we have completed our mission.
Master Mage:
Excellent. Laser Eye has finally been moved into position.
The Shining Force won't stand a chance against this thing. Now, have those men from
Bustoke buried alive or something!
They're useless to us now!
Skeleton:
M...Master Mage...
Master Mage:
What?!
Don't interrupt me while I'm cackling gleefully!
Master Mage:
Wh--?
The Shining Force...!
Wh-what are they doing here?
Stop them!
Diane:
Max, this is the quarry. The men are being held here.
Hans:
Ugh...Those Runefausters are pretty gross-looking. I don't think I'm up to this.
Diane:
Get a hold of yourself, Hans!
You're going to make us archers look bad!
Hans:
Uh-oh! I made her mad!
All right, I'll do my best.
Arthur:
Alriiiight! A little light exercise before dinner! I'll play with 'em a bit!
Khris:
Arthur, I don't think you should let your guard down...
Arthur:
Hey, I'll be ok. As long as you're there to treat me when I get hurt!
Luke:
Hey, guys! Stay focused!
Max:
All right, everyone! Let's rescue the people of Bustoke!
END OF BATTLE 11
Master Mage:
Im...impossible... But we've still got Laser Eye!
Nova:
Max, the Moonstone is inside the cave!
We need it in order to make the medicine for Zylo. Don't forget to pick it up!
Girl (near the quarry):
Thank you so much for saving everyone. You're wonderful!
Diane's mother:
Thank you so much for saving all the men.
And...
Er, it's nothing.
Thank you.
Townsman:
The women here are worried about Zylo more than anything.
But we can't trouble you any further. You've done so much already...
Diane's mother #2:
Please help Zylo!
Get the Alchemist to make some Lunar Dew!
Diane's mother #3:
I beg of you! Please help Zylo!
Diane's mother #3:
Come back here when you've got some medicine from the Alchemist.
Otherwise, it's too dangerous.
Girl (guarding exist):
No! You can't keep going! The forest gets really thick from here.
Without someone to guide you, you'll definitely get lost.
Woman (near church):
The men are home! How wonderful! Wonderful!
If Zylo could be cured now, all would be well...
If only...
(If you approach the Alchemist without the moonstone)
Alchemist:
I'm the famous Stetla, medicine maker for 40 years!
...Do you want something?
Alchemist:
What's this? You haven't brought the Moonstone with you?
How do you expect me to make the Lunar Dew?!
(If you approach the Alchemist with the moonstone)
Alchemist:
I'm the famous Stetla, medicine maker for 40 years!
...Do you want something?
Alchemist
Alchemist:
There! With this, you'll be able to save Lord Zylo!
narR:
(Max got the Lunar Dew!)
(talking to him again)
Alchemist:
Hurry! You must use the Lunar Dew fast. Zylo is still suffering.
Diane's mother #3:
I beg of you! Please help Zylo!
Diane's mother #3:
Okay. Now I'll open the doors to the cell. Are you sure you're ready?
IF NO
Diane's mother #3:
Okay. Whenever you're ready. I'll be waiting here.
IF YES
Diane's mother #3:
......There you go.
Zylo:
Grrrrrrr...
What do you want from me?
Go away! Leave me alone, or I'll tear you apart!
Max:
Listen to us! I just want you to take this medicine...
Zylo:
Stop it! Stay away from me!
Diane:
Lord Zylo! Please, try to be strong!
You are the forest king!
Bustoke was built under your strong leadership! It's where the forest people call home!
Everyone is worried about you! Think of them...their feelings must mean something to you!
Zylo, mighty king of the forest! Do not fall into the hands of evil! Be strong!
Zylo:
You're...you're right. Give it to me. Hurry... the medicine...
(Max poured the Lunar Dew down Zylo's throat!)
Zylo:
Gurgle...
Unnngh...
Diane:
Lord Zylo!
Zylo:
D...Don't worry, Diane. I'll be all right.
Just give me a moment.
Are you the one known as Max?
Max:
Yes, that's right. I'm Max. But how do you know my name?
Zylo:
I heard about you in a letter from Lord Otrant of Manarina.
A long time ago, my life was saved by that great wizard.
Lord Otrant told me to help the Shining Force in any way I could.
To think you ended up saving me, instead...
oh, the indignity!
Allow me to repay you in some small way. From here on, I'll fight with you!
Diane, lets fight together! You know I can help!
Diane:
Yes, Lord Zylo!
(Zylo joins the Shining Force!)
Zylo:
We'll be waiting at HQ.
If you're fighting in the forest, I'm sure I can be of service. Just give me a call!
Diane's mother #3:
Zylo is the strongest Werewolf knight.
He's be able to beat any enemy in the forest.
Diane's mother #2:
Zylo's been cured?! And he's going off with you...?!
I see. Well, if that's what he wishes...
Diane's mother:
And you saved Zylo too! I'm so grateful to you! Thank you!
Townsman:
What?! Zylo has returned to normal? That's the best possible news!
Sorry? What did you say?
Zylo's joining your group? I see.
Then we will do our best to defend our country ourselves!
Woman (near the church):
Zylo's going with you on your trip?
Hmm, we'll miss him. But I suppose we'll have to get used to it...
Alchemist:
Ah, Zylo is saved! And it's all thanks to my medicine!
Man:
Thank you so much. Thanks to you, I was able to see my daughter's face again.
Girl:
Yeay! Daddy's come home! I'm so happy!
Rindo Merchant:
No more towns between here and Pao! Better do your shopping now!
Girl #2:
My father's come home. He wants to have a word with you. Listen to him, okay?
Man #2:
Come in! I may not look the sort, but I study ancient history.
I heard this from Diane...
She said that you had a treasure called the Light Sabre stolen by Runefaust.
I heard a legend a long time ago, about two swords left behind by the gods.
One of these swords is called the Light Sabre.
(talking to him again)
Man #2:
If the sword you had really was the genuine Light Sabre......
How did you get hold of such a thing anyway?
What? You've lost your memory? Oh well. Then we have no way of knowing.
Kokichi's wife:
Kokichi never listens to me when he's doing his research.
And yet, if I tough any of his weird tools, he jumps down my throat straight away!
Kokichi's helper:
Kokichi's been researching how to fly for years and years!
I've been working as his assistant for ages. Which makes me pretty amazing too!
Ha ha ha!
Or is that a bit big-headed?!
Kokichi:
Attach bolt B to...
(if Max searches his machine)
Kokichi:
Hey, you! Keep your grubby little hands off my tools!
Max:
I'm sorry. It's just... I've never seen a machine like this before...
Kokichi:
Hmm? You're not from around here, are you? I've just finished my new creation.
It took 50 years to perfect! The more people watching, the better. You oughta watch , too.
Go outside and wait. I'll show you just what this thing is capable of!
(outside)
Kokichi:
Watch closely...
Kokichi:
Here I go-o-o-o!
(Kokichi flies around a bit, then crashes)
Kokichi's helper:
Master!
Kokichi's helper:
Another flop...
Max:
...
(talking to him again)
Kokichi's helper:
Kokichi's useless! Wasting his time on research! As if he could fly!!
So that makes me useless too! ...Or am I being defeatist?!
(talking to him again)
Kokichi's helper:
Oh yes, I forgot! I was holding on to this for Mr. Kokichi.
He wanted me to give it to you.
(Max got Kokichi's Card!)
(talking to him yet again)
Kokichi's helper:
............
I wonder when Kokichi will come back this time...
Kokichi's wife:
Not again...
It's always okay 'till he takes off. Then the problems start.
I wonder where he's gone off to this time? Once it took him 2 years to find his way home.
Woman #3:
Look at this! My wonderful big house! My husband built it himself!
Man #3:
She's only happy I'm home cos I built that extension. Charming.
Old Man:
Hm, I'm worried about what Runefaust's up to.
They moved some kind of eye monster over the Pao Bridge. Wonder what it could be?
Boken:
Greetings! I'm Boken, the great adventurer! I did it at least!
I climbed this mountain. Oh, it really feels great! Why don't you have a go?
Girl (who was guarding the entrance):
Zylo has joined your group? That's a relief.
He knows this forest like the back of his hand.
BATTLE 12
Nova:
That which you see over there is known as the Pao Bridge.
Across the Pao Bridge lies the Pao Plain. Runefaust will do anything to slow our progress.
Zylo:
In the forest, knights cannot move so quickly.
The birdmen and I will go first and take the enemy by suprise!
Balbaroy:
Leave it to us!
Amon:
When it comes to a sky battle, nothing can defeat us!
Zylo:
Let's get going, Diane!
Diane:
Yes, Lord Zylo!
Max:
Make sure you don't get too spread out, or you'll be sitting ducks!
END OF BATTLE 12
Nova:
Max, we have defeated all of the enemies.
But I Fear the enemy may be amassing even greater forces at Pao Bridge.
We can always go back to Bustoke and re-equip...
BATTLE 13 - THE LASER EYE
Silver Knight:
You dare question Lord Balbazak's authority.
Pelle:
Hmph! Since when do I take orders from you? The only one I answer to is me!
Silver Knight:
Watch it! You are only a mercenary. Do what you're told!
Pelle:
Here! Take your filthy money. I shall no longer follow your orders
Silver Knight:
I see...
In that case, you are free to do as you like.
Silver Knight:
...once I've finished dealing with you!
You'll have all the time in the world to defend your honour... in the afterlife!
(Pelle is pushed off the cliff)
Pelle:
Vile Fiend! Aieeee~
Silver Knight:
Heh heh heh. Now no one will stand in my way.
The Shining Force will provide excellent target practice for my Laser Eye!
Anri:
What's that giant thing across the bridge...?
Nova:
Hmm...Perhaps it's one of those "laser" weapons they used in ancient times.
Tao:
"Laser" weapon? Is that like...magic?
(if Tao is not in battle)
Max:
Nova, what the heck is the "laser" weapon, anyway?
Nova:
Even I don't know the details, but...
Apparently it uses highly focused light to create a powerful beam.
Max:
Ah, I see..
...so we can't afford to mess around on the bridge, huh?
Nova:
Precisely! Everyone must cross the bridge and approach the enemy as fast as they can!
END OF BATTLE 13
Silver Knight:
No, it can't be...
Don't think you've won yet!
No matter how hard you try, you'll never make it across the plain!
General Elliot will stop you dead in your tracks!
Ha ha ha ha! HAA ha ha ha!
Pelle:
Whew, If I hadn't got stuck on that branch, I would have been a goner!
Pelle:
Hey! I know you! You're Max, the guy in charge of the Shining Force!
I saw the whole thing! You guys are crazy to take on the entire army of Runefaust!
Ha ha ha! I love it! You're my kind of people!
Max:
...Is that...a compliment...?
Pelle:
Yeah!
You've got guts. I like that.
I was fed up with the way Runefaust was doing things. Let me join up with you guys!
Max:
...OK, then.
Welcome aboard!
(Pelle joins the Shining Force!)
Having destroyed Runefaust's secret weapon, the Laser Eye, the Shining Force presses on ...and emerges at least from the steep, mountainous terrain of Bustoke.
Before them, the Pao plain, which connects the western and eastern continents...
CHAPTER 3 - SECRET WEAPON OF RUNEFAUST
Epilogue
Mawlock:
Well, here we are! We've reached our destination.
Narsha:
Where...?
Mawlock:
Well, the thing we're after is actually inside.
This ancient machine bends time and space, allowing travel to distant lands.
Narsha:
But... There's no way a machine could do something like that.
Er, I mean, not that I doubt you or anything...
Mawlock:
Think nothing of it. Your suspicions are perfectly natural.
Sigh...
Humans...it's such a bother explaining things to them...
If it were up to me...
Narsha:
Eh?
Mawlock:
Ah, nothing! Don't mind me.
We'd best get moving, or our pursuers will catch up.
Zuika:
...Too late.
...They're here.
Narsha:
What?!
BATTLE 14
END OF BATTLE 14
If Narsha is defeated -
Narsha:
Aaaaaaaah...
No... I haven't even met the Shining Force yet...
It can't be...
......
Narsha:
...
Mawlock:
Ahem. Are you all right?
Narsha:
Yes... I'm sorry.
Mawlock:
Ahem. Well... nothing to be worried about.
Narsha:
I'm so sorry. I'm not strong enough... I'm only dragging you down...
Mawlock:
I told you, there's no need to worry about it.
Enough talk...
Let us go inside.
If battle is won -
Mawlock:
Sigh...more trouble than I expected. Well, we managed to hold them off.
Now then, let's go inside?
Narsha:
Now we'll finally be able to join up with the Shining Force!
...Farewell, Runefaust...
...Farewell, Father...
I...
I'm moving on...
Note:
Soul Eater Card is obtained by defeating the Soul Eater with Zuika
Ramladu:
Darksol! What's the meaning of this?
Do you mean to tell me you still haven't taken care of Guardiana?
Darksol:
Forgive me, Your Highness...
Ramladu:
What exactly are Balbazak and Kane up to, anyway?
Darksol:
Balbazak is in Uran Batol. He is working on our fortress there.
Once the fortress is complete, we shall use it as a base to conquer the western continent.
Ramladu:
...I see.
Darksol:
And Lord Kane is on his way to Dragonia, as planned.
The secret of the Legacy of the Gods will soon be revealed...
Ramladu:
But then who's going to take care of those Guardiana wretches?
Are you planning on sending Mishaela again?
Darksol:
No. Mishaela has not been seen since her last encounter with them.
After her Marionettes were defeated, she slunk off somwehere to plot her revenge.
I have asked Elliot to take care of the Shining Force--
the remnants of Guardiana.
Ramladu:
Ah, General Elliot! There is no finer soldier in the land!
Darksol:
Yes, my lord. You are absolutely correct...
Those vermin will not escape their fate this time!
