Are you going out, Lord Synbios? Ah, and everyone is with you! That's great! I'm envious. This is my first time in Saraband, and I too would like to look around. Please take me with you next time.
Saraband Guard 1:
Since the heads of the Empire and the Republic are meeting, our duty as Saraband Guards is vital. If ill-tempered nobles bump into each other, a war could break out. We can't let our guard down at all.
Saraband Guard 1:
Is the person accompanying you the great Dantares from Flagard? His skill with a lance is well known even in the Empire. I'm surprised to see you attending the conference, and I'm deeply honored to meet you.
Saraband Guard 1:
Because of its key strategic value, the Empire used the internal turmoil in Barrand as an excuse for their invasion. We hope the peace process succeeds, and the Barrand conflict won't result in a full scale war.
Garosh:
I was born in a poor village in the Republic. I ran away from there with my brothers in search for a better life and joined the national guard unit of Saraband, I'm now healthy, wealthy and happy.
Garosh's Girlfriend:
He's been taking care of his doves all day. We're supposed to go out on a date when he finishes. His doves are amazingly smart, and useful too. We can send messages to far off friends with them.
Hayward:
I roamed the world as a mercenary searching for a master archer, and ended up here in Saraband. I liked it so much, I joined the Bridge Guards. However, I'm thinking about moving on again.

Using Flower
Flower Girl:

Old Man:
Hey young man, do you like Saraband?
Begin choice options
No
Old Man:
... What?!? Blasphemy! If you can't comprehend the greatness that is Saraband, you know nothing! Nothing!
Yes
Old Man:
I thought so... It's quite a sight, isn't it? Because the wisdom and foresight of Governor Garvin, Saraband's leader, the area is flourishing. He established Saraband as a neutral trading zone.
End choice options
Man:
Saraband is made up of four districts. Two Residential Districts, the Business District in the middle, and tje Government district to the south. The steam plants allow it to travel over the sea. Can you imagine that? It's unlike any other!
Man:
The elegant business facility in the center district represents the face of this modern city, Saraband. The Republicans and Imperial camps in the east and western districts were originally citizen's homes.
Old Woman:
Saraband became a permanent neutral country because the Emperor Domaric permitted it. However, I wonder why he allows a country like this to exist? It's considered to be one of the seven wonders of this continent.
Barracks
Man:
Seeing a young soldier reminds me of the era before the Republic separated from the Empire. When Domaric came to power, policies to divide the nobility from the middle class were passed, and we're living in the results.
Kid:
My sister is spending time with her boyfriend, Garosh, somewhere... Garosh has two brothers, one is the commander of the guarding unit, and his younger brother is in the Republican army. I'm told he's assigned to the countryside.
Woman:
You were born after the Republic was founded, weren't you?

No
Woman:
Don't try to kid an old woman like me. It's been well over 20 years since the Independence war of the Republic. You can't be that old... Have that many years passed by? I keep getting older and older... How depressing...

Left Saraband Soldier:
Before the peace conference, we agreed to equip only light weapons, but... I feel kind of nervous... What do you think?
Right Saraband Soldier:
Destonia really needs Saraband, so no matter how long the conference remains, there's no way to compromise. There's no reason why the Emperor should bring his three sons here... They must've had nothing better to do...
NW Saraband Soldier:
The soldier's dormitory in the east district of Saraband houses the city guard units. The personal guards' dormitory is in the west. They are the elite soldiers, but everyone there is a jerk. If you meet them... you'll understand.
Moving Saraband Soldier:
I recommend not going too close to the west district of Saraband. This is not very well known in the Republic, but there are far more Imperial soldiers there than there are Republican soldiers in Saraband.

Man:
Why doesn't anyone care how the steam engine was invented?!? Curiosity is the driving force behind the development of technology and civilization. Otherwise, humans are no better than apes... Don't you agree with me?
Kid:
My papa was a scientist under Governor Garvin. He created the power that allows Saraband to move. Others, in the town of Quonus, are supposedly researching armor powered by steam... I don't believe that at all.
Woman:
My husband spends all his time on his research in the palace. Since access to the palace is restricted, due to the conference, I thought I'd get to spend some time with him... But all he does is read books...

Gal:
I want to marry a man just like my father. My mother says to marry a merchant! She says a military man is good... However, a merchant will make lots of money and would make me happy. I still think a strong man looks cool!
