Cyos:
I have been waiting for you, Medion army. I am Lord Cyos of Swampland.
Campbell:
It seems that it is his intention of to fight us.
Cyos:
The peace agreement between governor-general Garvin of Saraband, Lord Dakka of headland, and I was pursued at great lengths to be obstructed. However, I've finally realized from the actions of the Empire that it will stop at nothing to deny us of our freedom. There is nothing left for me to do now but to die as a martyr.
Domaric:
You should reconsider that decision, Lord Cyos.
Cyos:
That voice, I'll never forget it! That belongs to Emperor Domaric!
Domaric:
And I have not forgotten your betrayal during the rebellion of Conrad 20 years ago when you and Dakka served as our collaborating forces.
Cyos:
You are one to talk of betrayal! We, who are born to royalty, have a duty to serve the people, but you deprive them of everything. My new kingdom is free of all your evils.
Domaric:
And how is your control of authority? As a lord, you are a man of great power. I doubt that you and Dakka are any different than me.
Dakka:
You know it to be true, Domaric. We are independent republicans in cooperation with Conrad. Our success during the civil war should have shown you that. However, sacrifices had to be made. We've turned from an aristocratic, social-life of lush Destonia to the sober life of small territory and have continued to do so these past 20 years.
Domaric:
And did I give you that choice? I will not allow it, Dakka.
Dakka:
*groan* As long as you exist there will always be an Empire for us to return to. Cyos and I have come to a decision, Domaric. We will not have our lands annexed to Destonia once more. Your ruin is it at hand. You will die.
Domaric:
Look at their arrangement, Medion. Both armies will strike like scissors. Lay down a magnificent blow upon this difficult battle.
Grantack:
We must do what Emperor Domaric orders. Judging by geographical features and the position of the enemy, they are confident in their strength.
Campbell:
The enemy at the rear may not be targeting Emperor Domaric directly.
Grantack:
Prince, keep the armies of Lord Dakka and Lord Cyos away from the Emperor. If he is their target then their forces will be focused towards him.
when you kill Dakka
Dakka:
Uhh...I am defeated...
Domaric has killed me...the Empire was lost to me 20 years ago...and now it is...my time to die...?
Cyos...Cyos...strike my enemy down...avenge me!
Dakka dies
after the battle
Cyos:
W, wait...wait, Domaric...
Domaric:
So. Why should I wait, Cyos?
Cyos:
I am beaten...you can see that...but let's put that aside for now...
Domaric:
What? You set a trap for me and planned my destruction, only to suffer a crushing defeat...and now you plead for your life?
Cyos:
I want to return back to Destonia, back to Imperial law...I promise to quietly spend my remaining years there.
Fiderit:
It amuses me to see you squirm like a bug, Cyos. You had the Emperor under your thumb, but now that your bid for victory has failed you can only beg for mercy...
Cyos:
Silence, Fiderit!
I am talking to the Emperor...and I have a question to ask...
Usually you have the Rainblood with you, Domaric. Did you think you could win the battle without them?
Fiderit:
The Rainblood were not needed to overcome this trap, even if they were with us...
Cyos:
So you don't have the Rainblood assassins with you...why, are they wiping out some other poor sacrifice elsewhere?
I wondered why they wouldn't be here......they would have killed me before I could've laid a finger on Emperor Domaric...murdered me like a dog...
Domaric:
Dispose of Cyos, Medion.
I want you to bring me the head of my enemy...why do you pause...
will you do as I say?
Begin choice options
YES
Fiderit:
As it should be, Prince Medion...
If you accept your Emperor's demand, then hurry up...aren't you going to strike the killing blow?
NO
Fiderit:
That's enough, Prince Medion...do not reject the Emperor's words. Did you not pledge unconditional loyalty to the Empire?
Cyos starts to back off...
Domaric:
Don't let him get away, Medion!
I will not permit this resistance. If you will not do it, then...Campbell, dispose of Cyos.
Fiderit:
Obey your Emperor, Campbell...since the Prince hesitates, you will carry out your duty instead.
Cyos runs for it, out of the cave!
Domaric:
Kill him, Yasha!
Cyos staggers back into the cave
Cyos:
Uhh...Domaric...!
Cyos dies
Yasha appears
Domaric:
I was wondering if you'd encountered any problems, Yasha...good to see you still live. Now, leave us!
Yasha disappears
Domaric:
Before you truly become a man...you must learn to do better, Medion.
To re-capture the Republic, I must always take the right course of action...whether you agree or not.
The late Cyos was lord of Swampland. There could be dangers for us there, Fiderit.
Fiderit:
Yes, my Emperor. We will have to keep watch for such characters...
Domaric:
Time to go, Medion...
*chuckles* Let's not waste any more time here...we head for Swampland Castle.
Domaric and Fiderit head off
Campbell:
I should have reacted quicker to the Emperor's command...I must try better next time.
Grantack:
As we get closer to Aspia...in an delicate operation like this one, Medion's army will need to carry out its orders to the letter.
Campbell:
If the prince's army offers passive resistance to Emperor Domaric's plans...well, I can understand that...but aren't you concerned about the consequences of doing so?
Grantack:
Prince Medion, if you refuse to carry out his wishes...don't you think that the Emperor will try to knock you back?
Campbell:
My prince, even if this raid on the Republic is not what you want, I believe that you must yield to your father and do as he says!
Medion:
......
Grantack:
Now, we can pass through this cavern to Swampland...and then we will have to get past the eastern mountains. Let's hurry on, Prince Medion.
Medion's army leaves the cave
While succeeding in the rescue of the Emperor and foiling Garvin?s attempts to capture them, the Medion army could do nothing as Garvin fled to the Seagate with Arrawnt and his army.

They were forced to take the overland route. Even though they moved as quickly as they could, they were intercepted by Lord Cyos of Swampland and Lord Dakka of Headland, two men who greatly desired the overthrow of Emperor Domaric.

A severe battle ensued. Prince Medion took the victory in the battle in the caves, but resented Emperor Domaric?s treatment of the surviving Lord and his family. The rift between the two became ever wider.
