CHAPTER 1 - RUNEFAUST INVASION
Lord Varios:
Max? Max? C'mon, kid, wake up! I didn't hit you that hard.
Lord Varios:
Keep your guard up, kid. Those beasts of Runefaust will tear you to pieces!
Lord Varios:
OK, that's enough for today. You'd better take it easy for a while.
If you talk to him again before talking to Lowe
Lord Varios:
No, Max, I think you've had enough for today!
Lowe:
Well, Max, had enough swordplay for today?
Lowe:
I don't know how you keep at it hour after hour. I'm dead tired after about 15 minutes!
Lord Varios:
You have the makings of a great fighter, Max. You'll be tested soon enough.
Soldier:
Lord Varios, the king has sent for you. You must come at once!
Lord Varios:
Of course. Lead the way, guardsman.
I fear the worst, Max! Prepare yourself for true battle immediately!
Lowe:
Did you see Varios' face? He went pale! Something really big is happening.
Lowe:
Let's split up and see if we can't find out what's going on. I'll see you later.
AROUND THE TOWN
Woman:
I'm sick of feeling helpless! I'm going to ask Varios to train me to be a fighter!
Priest:
Hello, Max! I've been having the worst nightmares. Have you had any?
If YES
Priest:
I bet they're the same ones I've been having!
Priest:
I saw our land in ruins. Evil creatures roamed our halls! It seemed so real!
If NO
Priest:
Well, then, let me tell you about mine. I saw our land in ruins.
Priest:
Evil creatures roamed our halls! It seemed so real!
Priest:
Varios seemed very upset when he passed this way. Perhaps you should look for him.
Old man at the church:
Eh? What's a youngster like you doing moping around? Get out and fight evil!
Guard at the church:
Back and forth, up and down! Man, I'm tired of guarding this chapel all day!
Woman at the entrance of the castle:
The Castle of Guardiana lies just ahead. Varios went in just a while ago.
Old man:
Someday I hope to go to Manarina to become a mage.
Man near bar:
There are so many monsters outside the city gates! There's no escape!
Bar owner:
Pay the old man no heed, youngster. His mind isn't what it used to be!
Gort:
Hey there, youngster. My name is Gort. Care 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. No one talks to me anymore. All too busy. Want to hear a secret?
If NO
Gort:
I understand. I had things to do when I was your age. Perhaps some other time.
If YES
Gort:
Never trust anyone outside this city! Murderers and thieves, all of 'em!
Gort:
I ought to know. I used to be a great warrior. Been all over the world.
Gort:
Why, I have half a mind to go out again. Would if I got a good offer.
Man near exit:
Have you seen my cart? It rolls away all the time. Needs new brakes, I guess.
Item seller:
Don't mind the boss. He gets like that sometimes. Perhaps I can help you out?
Weapons seller:
Sigh, not another customer! Buy, sell, buy, sell. That's all I do! Just go away!
Guard inside building:
Be careful, Max. The knights resent the time Lord Varios spends training you!
Guard at the exit 1:
Sorry, Max. Talk to the king if you want to leave. Orders are orders!
Guard at the exit 2:
An order from the castle. No one leaves.
Inn owner:
Bad times, my friend. Not a guest in two weeks!
If you read the inn's poster
Kinghts' Inn
Girl's mother:
My poor girl! I can't seem to calm her down!
Girl:
I...I had an awful dream. The whole town burned down. Sniff. Our house, too.
Girl's father:
We're all upset about our daughter's nightmare. Do you think it means anything?
Man in town:
Hey! Watch it, pal! How'd you like it if I tried to run you over with a cart?
Dog:
Grrr! Woof, woof! Arf!
Gort's first grandaughter:
Sorry, but I'm busy packing. Grandpa's out somewhere. He has time to talk!
Gort's second grandaughter:
Grandpa was once the best warrior in all of Rune. But that was a long time ago.
IN THE CASTLE
Castle guard 1&2:
This is Guardiana Castle!
Guard near the headquarters:
No one enters here without Lord Varios' permision!
Old man:
The king seems very worried. Do you know why?
If NO
Old man:
My guess is that thoughts of the Gate of the Ancients trouble our noble king!
If YES
Old man:
Well! You young people think you know everything!
Mae:
Greetings, Max. I am Mae, Varios' daughter.
Mae:
The other knights feel that father has wasted his time on you. We shall see!
Guard near the treasure room:
What kind of treasure? I'm not sure. Something really valuable, I guess.
Guard at the treasure room:
(while pushing him)
Huh?
(After pushing him)
Hey, cut that out! You can't just push your way in here. Get out!
Guard near the knights:
Watch out, Max! There are REAL kinghts training out here! You might get hurt!
Knight 1:
We'll make quick work of those Runefaust beast!
Knight 2:
The Guardiana knights have no need of you, Max!
Knight 3:
Whew! Training wears me out.
Knight 4:
We have trained until our arms are ready to fall off! When will we see battle?
Knight 5:
Beat it, Max! This training field's too rough for the likes of you!
Knight 6:
Don't let them get to you, Max. Some knights are always complaining.
Knight inside the castle:
These are my quarters. Find someplace else to sleep!
Old man inside the tower:
A great view from the top of this tower. You can see forever.
Mage:
Yes, it's an interesting tower, isn't it? So much to see, and do!
Man at the top of the tower:
Oh my! What a lovely view!
If you search the telescope
Max looks into the telescope.
Old man:
A huge eye! Aiiiieeee!
Old man:
Whoa! You scared me for a bit there! I was just looking around, admiring the land.
Lately I've seen moving people or creatures near the Gate of the Ancients....
MEETING WITH THE KING
King of Guardiana:
...that is the story, Varios.
Lord Varios:
Mmmm...Then, your majesty, we have no choice but to send Max, a young fighter.
Lord Varios:
Oh Max. Good. I was going to look for you. First, listen to the King.
If you talk to them first
Lord Varios, minister and Nova:
First you must listen to what the king has to say.
King of Guardiana:
For centuries, our people have watched the Gate of the Ancients, as its guardians.
Beyond that gate lies we know not what, not even if it is of the Light or the Darkness.
King of Guardiana:
But the Ancients knew, and they sealed it beyond the gate and set us as guards.
And now we find that we may have failed in our mission, our reason for existence
Signs have been seen that forces of Runefaust are at the Gate of the Ancients!
King of Guardiana:
Whatever evil they are planning, we must stop it at all costs and at once!
Lord Varios:
But we must not panic the people. A small group of young but skilled warriors...
Nova:
Yes! He could do it. He could leave town unnoticed and have a chance to suceed, perhaps.
King of Guardiana:
Yes, Nova, I agree. Max! Will you take the task?
If NO
King of Guardiana:
What? You refuse?! It seems that Various was wrong about you, after all. Too bad.
King of Guardiana:
Have you reconsidered? Will you go to the Gate of the Ancients and investigate?
If YES
King of Guardiana:
Very well! Now, return to town and gather your troops. Come back when you're ready.
AROUND THE CASTLE
King of Guardiana:
Gather your troops, quickly. There is no time to lose!
Varios:
I'll leave everything to you. I must fortify the castle.
Minister:
Hummph! Seems like a mighty poor plan to me! But who listens to my advice?
King's maid:
Take care, Max. It is more dangerous out there than you suspect! Or so I've heard.
Girl 1:
Grrr! I'm so mad! Do you want to know why?
If NO
Girl 1:
Why I never! How rude!
If YES
Girl 1:
It's that Tao! How dare she call herself a mage? If she's a mage, I'm a footstool!
Girl 2:
Princess Anri is away in Manarina. Do you know about the land of Manarina?
If NO
Girl 2:
Manarina holds an Arcane College, where the best mages are trained.
If YES
Girl 2:
I see you are well-informed.
BACK TO THE TOWN
Luke:
Wait, Max! Nova sent us. We're going with you. I am Luke the warrior.
Ken:
Ken the knight, at your service, Max! I'll follow you wherever you lead.
Tao:
I am Tao. I'm only an apprentice mage, but I'll do my best.
Hans:
I am Hans, an elven archer. I'm coming, but don't put me in the front lines, OK?
Luke, Ken, Tao and Hans join the Shining Force!
Luke:
Meet us at headquarters back in the castle!
Lowe:
Hey Max! Don't try to sneak out of town without me!
Lowe joins the Shining Force!
Lord Varios:
Now that you have your comrades, return to the king to hear his final commands.
I'll follow your progress and offer advice as you face the vile hordes of Runefaust.
Lowe:
Well, that's settled. See you at headquarters!
AROUND THE CASTLE
King of Guardiana:
You have your troops, but you need supplies. Take this to purchase what you need.
Max gains 100 coins!
King of Guardiana:
A cart will take you to the Gate of the Ancients. Go now and carry out your task!
Minister:
It'll never work! We're all doomed, I tell you. Doomed!
King of Guardiana:
Good luck, Max. You must succeed or Guardiana falls!
Knight inside the castle:
Why you? Why couldn't I lead the Shining Force? Arrrgh!
The knight runs outside
Knight from before:
What's that troops? I can't hear you! Louder!
Knights:
Sir, yes, sir!
Guard near headquarters:
Good luck, Max!
BACK TO THE TOWN
Guard near the exit 1:
I see that you have the King's permission to leave. Good luck!
Guard near the exit 2:
If you sense great danger, don't hesitate to retreat. Use your Egress spell.
BATTLE 1 - GATE OF THE ANCIENTS
Lowe:
Max!
Goblins! Runefaust must be up to something!
Tao:
We can take them, Max!
Rune knight:
Move it, vermin! Find the key to this blasted door!
Rune knight:
C'mon, we're almost in!
Rune knight:
Where is that blasted key?
Rune knight:
What? Blast it! Those fools from Guardiana are here!
Offscreen) Earthquake!
Rune knight:
Attack, goblins and dwarves! Strike a blow for the honor of Runefaust!
battle ends
Rune knight:
Fools...you have won here, but Lord Kane of Runefaust is even now attacking Guardiana!
Nova:
If that creature spoke truly, we must return to help defend Guardiana!
BATTLE 2 - TO GUARDIANA
