Shining the Holy Ark
USA Version Script
Outside Desire Mine
Script typed up by: Rune
Three soldiers are standing outside of the mine.
Soldier A:
Are you sure that Rodi has holed up inside the mine?
Soldier B:
Yeah, I saw him with my own eyes. He ran in with that big sword of his strapped across his back. The captain and the others went in after him, but...
Soldier C:
That explains it. No wonder you were the only one out here when we arrived.
Soldier A:
You don't think... I wonder if the captain will come back out to get us?
Soldier C:
It's been quite a while since the mine was shut down. There are probably lots of creepy things running around in there by now.
Soldier C:
Yeah... I wonder where those mercenaries are?
Soldier A:
Hey... Look over there.
Soldier C:
Yup, that's them all right.
Soldier B:
Looks like they made it. Heh, we may not have to into the mine after all.
Figures are seen walking in the distance.
Unknown:
Those approaching must be Forte the sorcerer and his partner Melody the shaman. They have a fierce reputation
Unknown:
Look! There's three of them. Who's the swordsman?!
Unknown:
I know that guy! He's Arthur, a mercenary who's starting to make a name for himself. They have assembled quite a team.
Soldier A:
Rodi doesn't stand a chance! Forte and Melody are a strong pair, but adding in a swordsman...
Soldier B:
Yeah. I don't know what Rodi did, but he's sure going to pay for it.
Soldier C:
I heard a rumor that Rodi was involved in a power struggle at the palace and these three were assembled by the Enchantress Rilix to track down Rodi.
Soldier A:
That sounds strange...
Soldier B:
Strange? What do you mean?
Soldier A:
I heard Sabato, the sage of the anti-Enchantress faction, had employed some mercenaries to find Rodi.
Soldier C:
Sabato was stripped of all his power by Rilix, so therefore he couldn't... Who was he supposed to have hired?
Soldier A:
Lisa, the female paladin and the dragon warrior Basso! At least they would be better than any of these mercenaries!
Soldier B:
Keep it down! They'll be here shortly.
Unknown:
We're already here. Exactly who's supposed to be better than us?
The three mercenaries appear.
Melody:
If we were after you, you'd be dead by now. We were told this was urgent, so we took a shortcut or two to get here faster!
Forte:
So this is it? The mine where Rodi has gone into hiding?
Melody:
So, the reason so few of you Enrich soldiers are out here is that the rest went in after Rodi, right? Well at least some of you have courage...
Soldier C:
What?! Are you mocking us?!
Forte:
How many?
Soldier A:
What did you say?
Melody:
He's asking about Rodi's group. How many of them are there?
A soldier holds up his finger.
Forte:
Ten... huh. Could be interesting.
Soldier B:
Uh, no... I meant he's in there alone.
Melody:
What! Alone?!? We could have taken care of this by ourselves! Why did we need to bring him?
Soldier A:
We're all aware of your reputation, but don't underestimate Rodi! He's a very crafty adversary and possesses some very powerful magic...
Forte:
Well, whatever... There'll be time to discuss splitting the take later.
The three enter the mine.
