Script typed up by: Lineage
Fall
Dantares:
Once over the rapids, we'll be in Aspinia, back into the land of our Republic. I don't see any sign of Julian. I wonder if perhaps he was swallowed by the rapids.
Synbios:
.......
Benetram:
The area around the waterfall basin is the fasterst of the rapids. We don't have a chance of catching up.
Garzel:
Heh heh heh... are you searching for something, Republican rabble? I'm surprised you didn't notice us.... Do you feel that safe having reached Barrand, or are you just preoccupied?
Dantares:
You Imperial types are far more tenacious than I expected. Won't you let us return home in peace?
Garzel:
You have caused a good deal of trouble for the Empire. Why should we let you pass?
Synbios:
.......
Garzel:
You have abducted our Emperor and declared war against the Empire. We shall not allow such an outrage! Forward, men! We are the most elite force in the Empire! We shall eradicate Synbios and his treacherous compatriots! Don't let even one escape our wrath!
Dantares:
We are only searching for Julian. What an internal time to be ambushed by the Empire! However, we have no choice but to fight.
Synbios:
......
Benetram:
I fear for Julian, but we can't risk our cause for him alone. Be careful against General Garzel. He is strong and has defeated many. He will be well prepared for us.
During the battle
Advice
Benetram:
Careful, Synbios. There must be a reason for General Garzel to be so confident. Keep your troops together.
Midway
Garzel:
You have fallen right into our trap, Synbios battalion!
Benetram:
What do you mean...?
Edmund:
Surrender now, Synbios... It is time for you to hand over King Benetram.
Dantares:
That voice.... It's General Edmund....?
Edmund:
Had the Imperial army defeated you, we would not be meeting like this. Hand over King Benetram, Synbios. I have no quarrel with you... but I will kill you if I must.
Dantares:
So you've betrayed us, General Edmund!?
Garzel:
Betrayal is such a harsh word. The General is simply following his instincts. So, what is your answer, Synbios.
Synbios:
......
Edmund:
We tried to build Aspinia on the ideal of true equality, but failed in the attempt. We intend to start over again, and bring a new order to Aspinia!
Benetram:
By allying with the Empire, Edmund? Our work in Aspinia is only half done. Any change worth making takes time.
Edmund:
Enough with your speeches, Benetram. Our people suffer in poverty, while we ourselves have become another Empire! I trusted your words and waited, but where are the results? What has changed for us?
Garzel:
General Edmund, don't listen to their lies! Your time has run out, Synbios. Put down your weapons, surrender... and hand over Benetram!
Begin choice options
No
Synbios:
......
Garzel:
You intend to fight to the very end... I guess I always knew you would.
Yes
Synbios:
......
Garzel:
Huh... do not mock me. You would never give Benetram up so easily Synbios. You are obviously plotting some nefarious scheme, and I won't play into your hands!
Edmund:
If you won't listen to reason, you leave me no choice. To arms, my men! Advance upon the enemy!
Dantares:
The gods! We've been flanked!
Garzel:
What? What's this, General Edmund?
Edmund:
Wait.. this just cannot be... What is wrong...? Men! Cut off the Synbios' battalion's retreat!
Garzel:
Look there! They have finally appeared. Now we have secured our victory! Huh...? What's wrong, Edmund?
Edmund:
Something's not right... This is not what I planned. My entire force is larger than that, where are the rest?
Medion:
I believe I'm to blame for that... The rest of them are being kept busy by my troops, Edmund!
Garzel:
Look there! They have finally appeared. Now we have secured our victory! Huh...? What's wrong, Edmund?
Medion:
You'd sacrifice innocents for your new order... that hardly sounds ideal to me. Time to wake up, Edmund!
Grantack:
I have lost respect for you, Garzel. You conspired with Republic traitors and plotted to kill King Benetram!
Garzel:
Shut it, Grantack.... What does a peon like you know about anything!?
Campbell:
If this is an example of the fine standards of the Imperial knights you prate about, I want to learn nothing from them!
Garzel:
How dare you, Campbell. Once I crush Synbios and his foolish friends, you'll pay for your impudence!
Edmund:
You there, by the Synbios battalion, attack them! The rest of my army will handle Medion's forces!
Medion:
Leave Edmund's main forces to me. Go after Garzel and those other traitors, Lord Synbios!
Benetram:
I appreciate your help, Prince Medion. They've lost their momentum, Synbios. Seize this opportunity!
Advice
Benetram:
Those who master the landscape master the battle, Synbios. Position your troops where you gain an advantage.
On the bridge
Edmund:
They've reached the middle of the bridge. If they should make it.... Cut the ropes holding up the bridge!
Garzel:
You say that so easily, Edmund. My men would plummet to their deaths if your selfish order were followed! Then I'd be left alone in Republican territory. Don't be ridiculous. I won't allow the ropes to be cut.
Edmund:
If that is the case... There is no further need for words!
Garzel:
I shall not permit it, Edmund!
Edmund:
Garzel... how could you... I'll fall... help me...!
Garzel:
Fool! I was going to eliminate you sooner or later. Your death just came... a little earlier than planned.
Edmund:
I see... that was your plan.... How could I be so blind....
Edmund falls down to the rapids
Garzel:
One problem down. The Synbios battalion is next. I suppose it's time I took a personal hand in this.
After the battle
Dantares:
Prince Medion, and your companions, words cannot encompass the debt we owe you, or our gratitude!
Campbell:
The feeling is mutual. Because of the message from Lord Synbios, we were able to properly choose our course of action.
Medion:
Speaking of which, I almost forgot.... We must return to you your friend. He traveled with us as our guest.
Syntesis:
Must you go, Zero...
Uryudo:
Zero is the only one of us who can fly.... Once he is gone, it will be harder for us to fight.
Eldar:
You seem to be needed, Zero!
Zero:
My dear sister....
Eldar:
But you have your own duty... starting with the restoration of order in the Republic...
Synbios:
.......
Medion:
Thank you, Lord Synbios, but with the hard road I see ahead of you, I cannot accept any more such gestures.
Benetram:
Prince Medion, are you heading south to the town of Barrand after this? If so, then would you extend your trip and... head to Elbesem?
Grantack:
To the holy land... Elbesem... Is there anything going on there?
Benetram:
It is not widely known, but... the Bulzome Sect has proven to be an evil power that opposes Elbesem. They have destroyed the protector of the Demon Gate... the Guardian Statue is no more.
Grantack:
The evil Bulzome have done such a thing.... I understand. We will make a point to go and investigate.
Benetram:
What would you do, Kahn? Do you intend to join Prince Medion and head to Elbesem?
Kahn:
I worry about Elbesem, and I wish very much to return, but... I have a duty which takes me elsewhere.
Medion:
I regret not being able to spend more time, but we must go now.
Synbios:
.......
Campbell:
Prince Medion and the rest of us will hurry south, over the mountains, and head into the capital of Barrand.
Medion's force is gone
Synbios:
.......
Benetram:
I know his death must be hard on you Synbios. But, let's remember Edmund as an exceptional and brave general. In many ways, Edmund was fortunate. He died fighting for his principles...
Synbios:
.......
Benetram:
...Just as Conrad, I, and all the rest risk our lives for what we believe in, Edmund just chose a different path.
Dantares:
King Benetram and Lord Conrad were targets of many plots because of their attempt to abolish the aristocracy.
Benetram:
When ideologies come into conflict, bloodshed is almost inevitable. Homans... how ignorant we all are... That is why we must restore the Republic and end this war. I feel your grief, but don't give up. We need you. Well... we should be on our way....
Dantares:
That's right. Everyone must be waiting to see the safe return of King Benetram....
Eldar:
If we pass through that narrow valley before dark, we should be through the danger zone.
Kahn:
They are heading for the holy land of Elbesem... Should I have given them the Treasure Orb?
The Vandal was a strong opponent, but Synbios brought back life to Quonus Village by defeating it. They then defeated General Franz and finally escaped Imperial territory. They defeated the Spiriel army who destroyed the Guardian Statue of Barrand, and were close to Republican territory, but two powerful generals, Edmund and Garzel, stood in their way. With the aid of Medion at the railroad switch, a newfound trust was born, and the alliance formed by that trust helped defeat the two powerful generals. The two armies part, oblivious to the hardship ahead.
