Malorie
Script typed up by: Lineage
MALORIE VILLAGE
Old Woman:
According to my tarot card reading... Synbios' luck is at an all-time low. However, fortune will turn her face and smile upon him soon.
Gal:
Many people in the town of Malorie are packing up their belongings. The Imperial army is coming near... If they manage to push into Aspia, we shall all have to flee.
Young Man:
The Imperial army has passed through Storich and is headed to Aspia. Now is the time to attack! Lord Tristus is no coward, he won't sit back while the Republic is crushed around him...
Merchant:
Taking advantage of the unrest within the Republic, Imperial forces have pushed into the Republican mainland. As if that wasn't enough... There are reports that Lord Conrad has been assassinated...
Old Man:
Lord Synbios came all the way out here to meet with Lord Tristus. I can't believe Lord Trustys is making him wait! Lord Tristus, with his wife the Lady Margaret, used to treat Lord Synbios like his own brother...
Bald Man:
I went through Aspia from Storich to tell people about the Imperial army. I think I caused a panic in this town. Aspia was also quite chaotic. I guess anyone would panic if the Imperial army was right at their doorstep.
Girl:
Once the Empire captures Aspia, there's no doubt they will turn on Flagard or Malorie next. But luckily, Lord Synbios' army is here, and if they join our garrison here, we might hold off the Imperial advance.
Weapon Seller:
People should pick up weapons and defend the town. Why, then, was I ordered not to sell any weapons?
Kid:
The Empire hasn't even reached Aspia, yet people talk as if we've lost already. Adults are a bunch of wimps!!
Woman:
It's been rumored the Imperial army has landed nearby, but I can hardly believe that. If the Empire is really coming, why are the Malorie army and Synbios' army sitting here doing nothing?
Southwest Soldier:
The Imperial forces are approaching, and it is too dangerous to leave town. To ensure no danger will befall you, your sister, the Lady Margaret, has requested we prevent you from leaving town.
Southeast Soldier:
This gate has been closed by order of Lord Tristus. We suggest you take your time and enjoy the hospitality of the fine town of Malorie.
Northwest Soldier:
Lord Tristus knows of your request for an audience, Lord Synbios. We will summon you when the time has come.
Northeast Soldier:
Others have told me you are in a hurry to leave for Aspia. At the moment, the castle is quite busy. Won't you please wait just a bit longer?
If YES
Northeast Soldier:
Our most gracious thanks for being so patient.
If NO
Northeast Soldier:
Regardless of the inconvenience, do you still insist on rushing Lord Tristus?
If NO
Northeast Soldier:
Our most gracious thanks for being so patient.
If YES
Wilmer:
I am the vice commander of the Tristus army. My name is Wilmer. I was just about to come greet you, Lord Synbios. I am glad you managed to find your way here all by yourself. Unfortunately, Lord Tristus is completely swamped with various duties right now. He will see you as soon as possible. If you might be so kind, could you wait for him in the waiting room... If it's not too much trouble?
Dantares:
Wilmer is making a request of us. Shall we go to the waiting room?
If NO
Wilmer:
Is that so... I understand... I shall just wait here, so please let me know when you are ready.
If YES
Wilmer:
Very good... It's right this way...
Northwest Soldier:
I hope you will pardon us for the trouble earlier. Wilmer will now show you to the waiting room.
Northeast Soldier:
Thank you so much for your patience. If you are all ready to proceed, please let Wilmer know.
CHURCH
Old Woman:
Dear gods who reside in the heavens... Grant us protection... Grant us grace... This is the biggest crisis that has ever hit the Republic. As long as it seems beneficial and worth praying for, I would pray for just about anything...
Woman:
Now come to think of it, Synbios' army from Flagard are the ones who eluded the Imperial army... Aren't you the Republic's elite unit? Please return to Aspia, and repel the Emperor and his armies!
Old Man:
Theres a universal truth about war... The outcome depends on two factors: 70 percent skill, and 30 percent luck. Despite the size of the Imperial army, use that 30 percent to your benefit, and the Republican army has a chance!
Girl:
I thought it was nearly impossible for the Imperial army to raid Aspia. Now that it has become a reality... I do not know what else to do but to pray...
Priest:
This time, the Imperial army is very serious about raiding Aspinia. The church is the only place the military will not raid or attack. By the time the Imperial army reaches Malorie, this place will be filled with the denizens of this land.
HOUSE SOUTHEAST OFCHURCH
Old Man:
It seems the second prince, Arrawnt, commands the Imperial army approaching Storich, not the Emperor himself. I heard of all the Emperor's sons, Arrawnt is the most like his father... Perhaps he is even more cruel...
Old Woman:
Ever since I heard about the invasion, my back has been acting up. I asked grandpa to escape by himself, but he refuses to leave me behind... He's quite the stubborn old fool.
Bookshelf:
The Country Life and Family! If you have too many kids, you'll run out of food, so try cold showers.
ARSENAL
Item Seller:
Vice commander of the Malorie army, Wilmer, ordered a moratorium on weapons sales. I wonder why? The official respons is they don't want inexperienced people getting hurt... Doesn't sound fair to me.
Man:
I cut trees for a living, so I know a thing or two about how to use an axe. I wanted to buy a battle-axe, but they refused to sell me one. I guess I'll have to use my trusty wood axe.
Young Man:
Since the Imperial army is coming, we came here to purchase weapons so we can defend ourselves. The guy in the weapon shop said he couldn't sell any to us, even though I saw a bunch of them around.
HOUSE EAST OF ARSENAL
Bald Man:
I know you're busy, but you won't believe this... I just saw a ninja! No, really, with my own eyes! That costume, and the way he moved... Just like in the legends... He climbed the castle wall like a gecko!
Worker:
My partner was in panic earlie, screaming "There's a ninja! There's a ninja!" So I rush over there, and what do I see? Nothing! He must have been dreaming or something.
Bookshelf:
Aspia Castle Walls! The double walls proved extremely effective in the War of Independence with the Empire.
HOUSE WEST OF ARSENAL
Young Man:
Now that General Edmund and Lord Conrad are gone... How can we beat the Empire? The Republic is bound to lose.
Girl:
I don't mind packing up in a hurry... but which direction should we go? Oh, I'm so confused, I can't think.
Bookshelf:
If you're short on soldiers, hire mercenaries! They cost a lot and are only temporary, but they are useful.
HOUSE WEST OF CHURCH
Man:
I wonder where my little boy went? I've told him time after time to stay inside the house.
Woman:
Oh I'm so busy... busy... busy... The Imperial army will invade any day. I must pack everything up quickly. I must decide which items are the most precious. If we take too much, we might not be able to escape.
BAR
Man:
I haven't heard any good news lately... BURP! It's all bad. I keep hearing about the Republic's financial problems and about this war with the Imperial army. I know that drinking too much is bad for you, but all this bad news buns me out.
Worker:
With no work in Malorie, I want to return to Aspia... But they won't let anyone go through the front gate.
Bald Man:
We came all the way out here because we accepted the job of renovating Malorie castle. But now we were told the work is being postponed. What could've happened that they'd call us here then stop work?
Old Man:
This year's harvest was extremely bad. If not for the supplies from Aspia, the Republican citizens would starve.
Young Man:
The town entrance is shut down now, so we can't go elsewhere to find work. I guess I'll drink and kill some time.
Girl:
I wonder how many years have passed since Lady Margaret has married and moved over here... Since her son Algernon was born, she has not had another child. That's sad when you think about it.
Waitress 1:
You've got a lot of time on your hands until Lord Tristus is ready to see you, Lord Synbios. Why don't you spend it with us? We'll take good care of you!
Waitress 2:
Ever since the front gate of Malorie was closed, military people have stopped coming in. I have noticed more and more empty seats here in the past several days.
Bartender:
The food and drink in this store were bought from Saraband... Our patrons can feel safe about placing orders!
Guild Master:
If you need to hire more soldiers, come by my bar. My name is Dailu.
Knight:
I don't mean to boast... but I work twice as hard as other knights. If you need personnel, talk to me.
Mage:
I have some wicked magic. If you saw it, you'd hire me. If you're a mage short, come talk to me again.
Monk:
You can't have enough able monks, especially adept monks like me. Once you organize your crew, please come talk to me again.
Dwarf:
In battle is where soldiers shine. Hey young one, I would love to show you my skills in battle... But it seems as if you have had enough for now, perhaps next time.
FYNNDING'S HOME
Girl Birdman:
SOB... My poor daddy... Hurry up... and come back... to us... Please...!
Boy Birdman:
My daddy went to the castle to tell everybody about the Imperial army, but then he just disappeared... I asked the men in the castle about my daddy, but they just said he went home, and then they chased me away.
Woman Birdman:
The other day, my husband went to Malorie castle, and he's been missing ever since. With the Imperial army closing in, I don't know what to do... I can't leave without my husband.
Bookshelf:
The Wrath of the Emperor Domaric! The more you resist him, the more relentless his vengeance becomes.
MALORIE CASTLE
Soldiers(random):
So you would like to pass... You may be familiar with the castle, but for now, please wait in the waiting room.:Welcome Lord Synbios. Please follow Wilmer, and head to the waiting room.
Soldiers(random):
Lady Margaret... Yes... She is currently... washing her hair... but she will be here as soon as she's done.)
Soldiers(random):
Lord Synbios, you have been to Malorie castle many times, and you know the waiting room is not that way.)
Soldiers(random):
A suspicious man got into the castle yesterday, so we stepped up security. We apologize for the inconvenience...)
Soldiers(random):
Our head of state, Lord Tristus, is extremely busy. Please wait for him in the waiting room.
WAITING ROOM
Wilmer:
This is the waiting room... Please take your time and relax here until Lord Tristus arrives.
Dantares:
Well that tears it, he's locked the door behind him. This is obviously a trap, Lord Synbios.
Synbios:
.....
Murasame:
That is exactly right, Lord Synbios... I came here to investigate, but why didn't you wait until I contacted you?
Dantares:
So, you are alive, Murasame!
Murasame:
It takes a lot to kill me, Sir Dantares.
Synbios:
.....
Murasame:
Malorie is worse off than we though. Lord Tristus is a prisoner here, and his son is in Braff's hands...
Dantares:
You mean Braff, the son of Fafhard? What do you mean, Lord Algernon is in Braff's hands... Has he been kidnapped?
Palsis:
It seems... that is the case...
Murasame:
After meeting with Lord Tristus, he asked that I hurry on to Aspia and spy on Braff and the Imperial army.
Palsis:
So Braff really is the guilty party... To think the son of a Republican general could do such a thing... If he is connected to the Empire... Aspia has been betrayed. It seems his mother's blood still flows in him.
Murasame:
Duke Palsis, have you told everyone the story of Braff's birth? When Fafhard was young, he fell in love with a young priestess... It was a very passionate affair. The priestess gave birth to a son... then disappeared. Fafhard was devastated, and never married.
Dantares:
From what I heard... General Fafhard's wife died during childbirth...
Palsis:
Stories were circulated to hide the truth. Fafhard couldn't admit he had an affair with a priestess of Bulzome.
Synbios:
.....
Murasame:
The woman who gave birth to Braff, and disappeared... is today the High Priestess of the Bulzome Sect, Basanda.
Dantares:
What? THE Basanda?!?
Murasame:
Dantares, you... know of her...?
Synbios:
.....
Murasame:
I see... Then you know how terrifying Basanda is. It is a miracle you all managed to stay alive. I heard that story when I was captured in a town called Sorrows, Basanda's birthplace, right by a Bulzome shrine.
Dantares:
Well, this all makes what Braff said at the castle makes a little more sense.
Murasame:
In any case, this is no time for long conversation. The fact we are locked up in this room is also Braff's doing.
Palsis:
I guess since the door is locked, our enemies are waiting for us outside. Wouldn't you agree, Murasame? How long do we need to hold Wilmer off before you can bring everyone in here?
Dantares:
Even if we bring everyone in, isn't the entire castle going to be after us now?
Murasame:
I'll see how quickly I can bring them.
Palsis:
All right... Please do your best.
Murasame:
Then, I go...
Synbios:
.....
Palsis:
Now that he's managed to lock us in, Wilmer will gather his forces in the inner court. That must mean the soldiers left inside the castle are the ones Wilmer doesn't trust. Yes... those would be the ones who are still loyal to Lord Tristus.
Dantares:
I see... That means... While we stall Wilmer, perhaps we can get the other soldiers to pull some strings for us.
Palsis:
All right... We understand the plan. Let's go and confront Wilmer's army. Shall we... Synbios?
