Script typed up by: Lineage
Republic Base
Tybalt:
You took your time, Synbios... With all the chaos outside, I was concerned that something had happened. What's wrong, Synbios? You look pale...
Benetram:
What is the matter, Synbios?
Masqurin:
Where is the Emperor Domaric...?
Edmund:
Did you say Emperor Domaric...?
Brutus:
What have you done!? Answer me, Benetram!!!
Benetram:
What are you talking about, Brutus?
Brutus:
You have attacked Saraband! And on top of that... What have you done with the Emperor Domaric?!? The Governor General's office is up in arms!
Edmund:
Masqurin also asked the same thing. What is going on with the Emperor?
Grace:
We all... saw it... king Benetram abducted the Emperor Domaric and took him away to the camp!
Benetram:
What... When... did you see that?
Grace:
It was just a couple of minutes ago...
Brutus:
Do you see, Benetram...? There is a Republican witness. Do you still want to play innocent?
Tybalt:
But Benetram was here! He returned quite a while ago, saying that the Emperor did not show up.
Dantares:
However, we really did see it... There's no doubt, it was King Benetram...
Benetram:
So you saw... Are you sure... that it was me?
Tybalt:
That's right! There is another witness to Benetram's doings! Edmund was with him as well.
Edmund:
Indeed, I was with King Benetram. I was with him the whole time. He never left my sight. Benetram is telling the truth... Domaric did not show up at the conference room. He most certainly did not abduct him.
Brutus:
Edmund is a man of few words, but... he is a trustworthy general who would not lie. So... what IS going on here?
Tybalt:
Then, perhaps Synbios saw both Benetram AND Edmund abducting the Emperor!
Synbios:
.......
Dantares:
General Edmund was not there. Instead of him... He was with a group of masked monks when he came out from the Governor General's office...
Grace:
Actually... during the chaos of the attack... We came across a group of those masked monks.
Masqurin:
They attacked us but... it was nothing we couldn't handle. They were quite vicious... Especially for monks.
Tybalt:
Are they... by any chance...
Dantares:
We did not make the connection back then, but... I believe they are the masked pagan worshipers of Balsamo.
Benetram:
It begins to make sense...
Brutus:
Do you know something about this, Benetram? Now that I think about it, you were curious about these monks from the very beginning... What is going on?
Benetram:
It's only speculation, but... It seems the perpetrators want me and the Republic to take the blame for this crime.
Dantares:
Even while we try to clear ourselves... the Imperial army just might try to wipe us out altogether...
Benetram:
Since this 'incident' happened in the neutral country of Saraband, their forces will also become our enemies.
Edmund:
If we stay in Saraband, we are surrounded by enemies... If we go outside, the Imperial territories are filled with enemies... If we must fight, we should move forward and not look back.
Brutus:
While you make your escape, I shall go to Governor General Garvin, and tell him the truth.
Tybalt:
As you are on good terms with Garvin, your pleas might indeed be helpful.
Benetram:
Trade with Saraband is vital to our country. We must persuade Governor Garvin of our innocence. Brutus... Can I rely on you?
Tybalt:
We'll have to forget about the Barrand peace negotiations for the time being... Still, it will not be easy to escape...
Benetram:
We must not let the Imperial army all work together. We will only find a viable route if we split them up.
Edmund:
I volunteer my forces to be used as a decoy. While my army creates a diversion for the Imperial army, you can leave Saraband with Synbios' forces, and return to Aspinia.
Dantares:
General Edmund, but that could be...
Tybalt:
Dantares is correct, Edmund. If you do that... you will be throwing away your life.
Edmund:
But if I do not, it won't be just me but ALL of us...
Tybalt:
Therefore, I will join my forces with yours! I cannot stand the Imperial army... If Edmund fights alongside me, I can get my revenge against Destonia!
Benetram:
Tybalt... Edmund...
Tybalt:
I knew something like this would happen, so I was readty with a skiff. Let's go to the shore and start some trouble!
Benetram:
Your lives are important... Please, try not to waste them.
Brutus:
What are you doing, Benetram? You're under suspicion for all of this! You must get out of here quickly! Edmund and Tybalt's armies will be moving very shortly. Don't waste their sacrifice!
Benetram:
Let us, too, get moving... However... not to run away... We are going to get to the botton of this, and clear everyone's reputation. I didn't bring you here for this, but... I know, this is a great responsibility with no warning... I'm relying on you... Synbios.
Synbios:
.......
Brutus:
I'll deal with things here... Take good care of Benetram.
Going elsewhere
Dantares:
In order to take advantage of the decoy generated by General Edmund and the others, we must hurry back to the camp, by way of the docking pier.
