Script typed up by: Trent
CHAPTER 6
DESCENDANT OF THE SACRED DRAGONS
Even the words of Runefaust's greatest mage, Mahato, could not reach Ramladu now.
Unaware of this, Max and his friends continued to drift among the waves..
Many days passed... until at last land was spotted upon the horizon.
However...As they tried to land, their ship was dashed to bits upon the rocky shore.
Max:
...
...Where are we?
...What is this place?
Girl:
Oh good! You're better.
Your boat ran aground on the shore.
You were half-dead before.
...But you seem okay now.
Max:
What about the others...?
Is everyone okay?
Girl:
Yeah. They're all resting at HQ.
Oh yes! You'd better thank Karin. She was the one who found you.
(if you talk to her again)
Girl:
Talk to Karin, okay?
Girl #2:
Talk to Karin!
Karin:
I'm Karin. I'm the leader of Rudo.
Your friends told me about you.
You're searching for the Legacy of the Gods, right?
Do you have any leads?
Max:
Well.... I thought we did, but it turns out we didn't...not yet...
Karin:
I see....
Then you should talk to Krin, my little sister.
She spends all her time reading old records, so she'll probably know something.
(talking to her again)
Karin:
Did you find Krin? Her pet's a bit boisterous so be careful, okay?
Girl #2:
Did Karin tell you about Bleu?
IF NO
Girl #2:
I thought as much. She's really worried about Bleu.
Bleu is a young dragon god but he's really cowardly. And he's the last one too...
IF YES
Girl #2:
No way! She wouldn't tell a stranger!
Girl:
All of the kids in this village are friends of Bleu.
Boy:
This is the land of children,
......Rudo!
Dog:
Grrrr Woof! Woooof!
Girl chasing hen:
Hey!
......I'm busy right now! Don't disturb me!
Boy #2:
My hobby's power walking! What's yours?
Rindo Merchant:
Hello! Good to see you again! I'm a merchant from Rindo!
Ah, what a mistake! There are no adults to buy my stuff here. I shouldn't have come.
Boy #3:
It's his hobby to make traps. You'd better look out.
Boy #4:
Ha ha ha ha...
Maybe here...
No, here's the spot!
Rindo Merchant #2:
Hey! Welcome! I came here from Rindo!
Old Man:
I was worried about leaving the kids on their own, so I stayed behind.
Girl #3:
I hate adults! They all ran out on the dragons and left the village!
Boy #5:
We can do loads of stuff, 'cos there are no adults around.
We're researching all sorts of things and we've got a proper leader and everything.
(talking to him again)
Boy #5:
We've made a barricade to keep the adults out!
Boy #6:
Heave-ho! Heave-ho! Hm...?
Boy #6:
We made a barricade in case our mums and dads come back.
Trouble is, it means we can't get out of the village, either. Can't go and see Bleu.
But don't worry. I'm about to get rid of the last rocks!
Old Man #2:
The kids all really love Bleu. That's why they are so concerned about him.
Old Man #3:
Aaaah. The sun feels great...
Lyle:
Hi! Nice to see another stranger in town! By the way...
Have you seen a guy called Max?
IF ON
Lyle:
That's what I thought...
He's on his way to Prompt so he wouldn't be around here.
IF YES
Max:
Max? Actually, that's me...
Lyle:
Ah! I see....
Eh! What was that?!
Great...Great to meet you!
I'm Lyle, an Assault Knight! Dr. Crock of Rindo asked me to come here.
(Guntz enters)
Guntz:
Well! This is a blast from the past! Lyle, my old buddy!
Ah, Guntz! It's been a while, hasn't it!
Max:
Do you two know each other?
I see. So you were both...
Lyle:
That's right. We were both apprentices of Dr Crock.
Guntz:
But tell me, where have you been all this time? We were supposed to meet in Pao!
Lyle:
Yeah, well, I...
Guntz:
Ah, I get it. You still have no sense of direction!
Lyle:
...Sorry. I was heading for Uran Batol, but somehow I ended up in Alterone.
Lyle:
I may get lost all the time, but I'm a crack shot! Let me help you guys out!
(Lyle joins the Shining Force)
Lyle:
All right, then. We'll be waiting at headquarters.
If you ever have a flying pest that you need taken care of, just give me a call!
I'll bring it down in a flash!
Boy #7:
Bleu will be a great dragon god! He's only a cry-baby 'cos he's a kid.
Brit:
Grrrrrr!
Krin:
Stop that! It's not polite to threaten our guests! Now be quiet!
Brit:
Whimper...
Krin:
Who are you? That cute Cerberus, it's my pet you know.
Did you want something?
Max:
Yeah. I was speaking to your sister.
She said that you know a lot of stuff from reading old books and records.
Krin:
Yeah, I've studied a few things. What did you want to know about?
Max:
Well......
The Legacy of the Gods......
Dark Dragon.......
Krin:
Hmm. Hang on a sec.
............
............
............
There's nothing in here about the Legacy of the Gods.
Max:
......?
How can you know that from just closing your eyes?!
Surely...
You don't remember what it all says, do you?
Krin:
Yeah. Why? Is that weird?
Max:
No, no...
Krin:
Well, there was nothing about that, but there was something on Dark Dragon.
Want to know more?
IF NO
Krin:
Huh! How dull!
And I was all ready to tell you about it, too!
(talking to her again)
Krin:
Ah-hah! So now you want to know about Dark Dragon, do you?
(cont.)
IF YES
Krin:
The Book of Secrets...
There's a link between that and Dark Dragon.
The books contains the spell used Dark Dragon was sealed away.
So if anyone had that book, they'd be able to break the seal and let the Dragon out.
That's why the book is guarded by the strongest race on this earth...
The dragon gods of Dragonia.
If you want to know more, then you should go to Dragonia. Oh, and one more thing...
If you do find the Book of Secrets, let me know what else it says in there, okay?
Girl #4:
Krin's amazing! She's a kid like us, but she reads lots and she knows everything!
Boy #8:
Your shirt is really, really dirty! You should wash it!
Girl #5:
We protect the dragon gods all by ourselves. We don't need adults.
Boy #9:
Adults are awful. How could they leave the dragon gods like that...
We're different! We're not going anywhere until Bleu becomes a great dragon!
Boy #10:
This village was made by dragon god followers. But there are few left now...
Apart from the old dragons, there's only Bleu left. Bleu's a kid... and a coward.
That's why the adults left the village. Because it was the end for the dragon gods.
(talking to him again)
Boy #10:
............
If Bleu doesn't get stronger, it really is the end.
Boy #6:
Village Boy
Boy #6:
You're just in time! Only one more rock left!
Heave, ho!
Heave, ho!
(rocks blocking entrance are pushed to the side)
(talking to him again)
Boy #6:
Ahem! I'm pretty strong, huh?
(searhing the Dragon statue)
Musashi:
Ah, you found me!
(Max looks around)
Musashi:
No point in looking.
Max:
...?
Musashi:
My name is Musashi. I am a travelling swordsman.
I have been staying in this village, trying to achieve a state of true nothingness.
This is why you cannot see me.
...But now that I have seen YOU, I have a favour to ask.
Nay, no need to ask, for my heart is already set.
My greatest desire is to cross swords with a mighty opponent.
It seems that the best way to fulfil this desire is to travel along with you.
I, Musashi, will become your companion!
(Musashi joins the Shining Force!)
Musashi:
Farewell!
...I will be at headquarters!
BATTLE 21
Dullahan:
Graagh! Listen up, all of you!
Lord Kane's on a very important mission in Dragonia right now...
We can't let that scum into Dragonia....
(If Domingo is in battle)
Domingo:
Domingo! Domingo! ...D...D...Domingo!
Tao:
...What's going on? Domingo's scared stiff!
Nova:
Domingo is worried...
Perhaps he senses an enemy of terrible power in Dragonia...
Even if we defeat the enemies here, we must be vigilant!
The true enemy may well be waiting for us in Dragonia...
(If Domingo is not in battle)
Nova:
He seems to have a bad feeling about something...an aura of evil from Dragonia.
Perhaps he senses an enemy of terrible power in Dragonia...
Even if we defeat the enemies here, we must be vigilant!
END OF BATTLE 21
Dullahan:
...Lord Kane...we've failed you.
Nova:
Max, the enemies have all been destroyed now. However...
Runefaust must be in Dragonia as well, looking for the Book.
Max:
I know. If the Book really does exist, we can't let Runefaust have it.
Keep your wits about you!
DRAGONIA
Rindo Merchant:
Lord Max! We're Rindo merchants!
Wherever you go, we'll be right behind you! Right then, get buying!
Boken:
What's going on here?! I heard this was the land of the dragon gods...
But there's not one dragon to be seen!
Bleu:
Oh! Stop it! I'm a cowardly dragon! Leave me alone!
Max:
Wait a minute! You have to listen to me!
We've come from a kingdom called Guardiana...
We're fighting against Runefaust! We're not your enemies!
We won't do anything, honest!
Bleu:
Eh? You mean you're not working for Kane of Runefaust?
Max:
Kane? You mean you were attacked by Kane?
Bleu:
That's right! He attacked us without warning. My grandparents... everyone...
They were all slaughtered! I was terrified...
and I've been hiding in here.
Karin:
Bleu! Is this true?
While everyone was getting killed, you were just hiding? You worthless coward!
Bleu:
K... Karin...
Don't say that...
Karin:
I Was so worried that I came after you... and all this time you were...
I HATE you, Bleu!
(Karin leaves)
Karin:
Eeeeeek!
Bleu:
That's Karin's voice!
Rune Knight:
Hmph! Look what I Found - a poor, shivering little dragon kid!
If you want the girl to live, you better open that door!
Karin:
Don't do it! Don't listen to what he says!
Don't worry about me! Defend the honour of the Dragon Gods!
Bleu:
Karin!
Rune Knight:
What's a puny little dragon like you gonna do about it?
(Bleu breathes fire)
Rune Knight:
Aaaaaargh!
Karin:
Thank you, Bleu. You finally found your courage!
Bleu:
...Yeah. I'm still not sure of myself, but... I'm gonna work hard and be strong!
Karin:
If you're serious about that, Bleu, you should go with Max and his friends.
Bleu:
Huh? What for? And who are these guys, anyway?
Karin:
The Shining Force. They're brave warriors who're fighting against Runefaust.
Bleu:
Wow, really? OK, that settles it!
Max, make me a member of your group!
Max:
All right. We could really use a dragon god, after all.
But...
Max:
Are you guys going to be OK without Bleu around?
It'll be a bit lonely. But I think we'll be OK.
Bleu's sure to get stronger if he travels along with you. So it'll be good for him, too.
Max:
Yeah, you're right.
Max:
Welcome aboard, Bleu!
(Bleu joins the Shining Force!)
Bleu:
OK, I'll be at HQ. I'm ready for a fight!
Karin:
I'm going back to Rudo. I have to tell everyone that Bleu finally proved himself!
Kane:
Max! Where are you?! Show yourself to me!
Kane:
It's been a long time, Max.
Max:
...Kane!
Kane:
You remember my name? I am Kane of Runefaust. I've heard all about you.
Of how you defeated General Elliot at Pao... You must be pretty strong.
Come on, look sharp! You should go back to HQ. Come out when you're ready.
One force against another... We'll fight on equal terms!
BATTLE 22
Kane:
You were a fool to come back here so boldly.
Did you really think you could defeat me, Max?
Mae:
You... You killed Varios!
Anri:
My father...
That man murdered him...
Narsha:
Loyal servant of Darksol...
Your reign of terror is over!
Ken:
In the name of Lord Varios and the Knights of Guardiana, I will defeat you!
Gort:
Kane...you scumbag! I'll make you pay for laying waste to my homeland!
Lowe:
Kane...So he's the one who offed the king and Varios.
Hans:
I may not like to fight...
but THIS time it's personal!
Luke:
I'm Luke of the Guardiana Band of Warriors! Your number's up, Kane!
Bleu:
Y...you...you're the one who killed my grandma and grandpa...
Max:
Kane! Let's finish this!
Kane:
Hmph. Well, they do have spirit... for cannon fodder.
Come and get some! I'll take you all on!
END OF BATTLE 22
Kane:
Aaaaaaaaargh!
...
...
It... it hurts...
The mask...
The mask...
The mask... it's breaking!
Kane:
...Wh... where am I? What have I...been doing...? Ah! Now I remember!
Darksol was using that mask in order to control me...
He used me to do his bidding. I even fought with you, Max...my own brother.
What have I done...?
Voice from the Shrine:
The heroes of Light awaken!
Come to my shrine, heroes, and receive the Book of Secrets.
Nova:
Max, what in the world did Kane mean by....?
And what is that voice...?
Max:
I'm... Kane's brother? I don't understand...
Nova:
We haven't found the Book of Secrets yet, either.
I'm curious about that Dragon Shrine. We should search it.
DRAGONIA
Kane:
Stop! Max! I don't want to fight you anymore!
It was all Darksol's doing. He made me wear a curses mask, and he controlled me.
I'm sorry...
I'm so sorry...
Those terrible things...
Max:
Kane......
Are you really my......
...brother?
I've lost my memory. I don't remember a thing.
Kane:
Oh yes...
But we must talk about this some other time.
If the Book of Secrets is in that villain's hands, the world will meet its end.
And then there will be no point in us being sent here...
Right, this is it...
(they walk up to the doors)
Heroes of Light! I have been waiting for you!
(Darksol appears in the shrine)
Darksol:
So, Kane. You've finally recovered your memory.
Kane:
Darksol, you--! You treachous snake--
You manipulated me!
Darksol:
thanks for all your help. But now that I have the Book, I have no need for you.
The Gate east of Runefaust will soon be opened... And then It will awaken...
And you will be sent to hell!
(to max)
Kane:
Don't just stand there! You have to get out of here!
This is between me and him. Stay out of the way!
Don't die on me, Max!
(Darksol and Kane fight unseen)
Bleu:
Max! Are you OK?
Narsha:
I just felt a horribly evil presence... So Darksol's here?
Max:
Yeah... But then he disappeared...
along with my brother...
Narsha:
...
RUDO
Note:
(not same order of numbers)
Boy at entrance:
Stop! Krin's got something important to tell you!
Girl chasing hen:
Hey! ...Ah, Max! Thanks for what you did for Bleu.
Dog:
Ah-ooo Ah-ooo
Girl:
Sorry for saying those things before. There are some nice adults.
Boy:
If Bleu's going away, there's probably no point in us being here...
Girl #2:
Bleu's going off with you, right? What will happen to our village...?
Boy #2:
I thought I saw a big castle to the south. Horrible! Skeleton-shaped.
But then it just disappeared! Maybe I was hallucinating.
Girl #3:
My mum and dad are living near Prompt. It's south from here.
Boy #3:
......
All of the other dragon gods have been killed...?!
But... But as long as we have Bleu, Dragonia and the dragon gods won't die out.
Girl #4:
Tell Bleu that he must come back to Dragonia when he's finished fighting.
We'll all be waiting for him!
Village Girl (chashing chicken):
Hey! ...Ah, Max! Thanks for what you did for Bleu.
Chicken:
Cluck Cluck
Boy #4:
Where's that kid got to? Wonder if he's digging another trap or something?
Rindo Merchant:
Welcome back, Max. Time for a bit of shopping?
Boy #5:
Ah, great weather again talking today.
Old Man:
Bleu's become really strong! And it's all down to you. Thanks alot!
Old Man #2:
The kids have done well. And Bleu's become strong.
Maybe it's time. Maybe the kids should be returned to their parents...
Old Man #3:
.........Sunbathing...............Aaaaah....It feels great...
Boy #6:
Uuurgh.... I feel into one of my own traps...
Boy #7:
This is the land of children, ......Rudo!
Girl #5:
You helped Bleu, didn't you? Thanks!
I could be your girlfriend if you like?
Girl #6:
Have you been to see Krin?
IF NO
Girl #6:
She's really excited about something she found.
IF YES
Girl #6:
Oh. Never mind, then.
Karin:
Welcome back, Max.
Everyone was really happy when I told them how strong Bleu's become.
Thank you so much. Krin says she's found something in the old records.
You should go and talk to her, find out what it's about.
(if you talk to her again)
Karin:
Talk to Krin.
Boy #8:
Bleu's become a really strong dragon. Yaahooooo!
Brit:
Whimper...
Krin:
Hey! You've been ages! Anyway, I looked over the records again.
And I discovered there was a book I hadn't finished yet. Want to know more?
IF NO
Krin:
How boring! And I was ready to tell you about it too!
IF YES
Krin:
Okay, I'll tell you about the stuff I found.
"The gods left a huge power in this world... This power took the form of a sinister dark dragon..."
That's what it says.
You're looking for the Legacy of the Gods and Dark Dragon... They're the same!
Max:
......No. No, that can't be possible...
Krin:
I find it hard to believe too. But what about the Book of Secrets?
Max:
....... I don't know. But maybe Darksol...
Krin:
...Oh no! That book... It explains how to seal away AND wake up Dark Dragon.
So if it falls into the wrong hands, the Dragon may wake up. What should we do..?
You should go to Prompt! I'm sure that the people there will be able to help you.
Max:
Yeah. That's where we're heading.
I heard there might be a clue there.
Krin:
The people of Prompt are sure to help you.
If you talk to her again
Krin:
The people of Prompt are sure to help you.
I wish you lots of luck. You must prevent Dark Dragon from awakening!
Karin:
......What?! The Legacy of the Gods is actually Dark Dragon?
But why? Why would the gods create such a fearsome thing?
(if you talk to her again)
Karin:
I hear a creepy castle has appeared to the south. Take care of yourselves!
One more thing...
I want you to have this.
It's my way of saying thanks. Take good care of it.
[Max got Bleu's Card]
Boy at entrance:
Be careful when you leave here. There's a strange castle to the south.
OUTSIDE OF RUDO
Bleu:
Bye, everybody. I'm leaving.
I'm going on a journey with Max and his friends.
Maybe I won't turn out to be such a great warrior... But I'll give it a shot!
Karin:
Good luck, Bleu!
Krin:
We talked amongst ourselves, and we've reached a decision.
We're going to stay behind in this village and wait until Bleu comes back.
Bleu:
Huh? Really?
Karin:
Yep. So you have to become a great warrior and come back, OK?
Krin:
We'll be waitinng.
Bleu:
Yeah...OK! Thanks!
I'm going to get stronger and come back to this village. And that's a promise!
Max:
Good for you, Bleu.
All right, everybody. We're heading south. Our next destination is Prompt.
See you again some time!
BATTLE 23
Mishaeala:
We meet again, Max. ...I am Mishaela.
Prompt lies right before your eyes. But you're not going to get there. Why? Because
to get to Prompt, you must first pass through my Demon Castle...Hee hee!
Come! Come to my castle! I've got just what you've been looking for...
The treasure of Guardiana... The Light Sabre!
Max:
The Light Sabre?! How did you get that sword...?
Mishaela:
Heh heh heh. Why should I tell you?
Mishaela:
Aha! What have we here? If it isn't the princess of Runefaust...
Tell me, Princess, how does it feel to betray your father?
Narsha:
Silence, Mishaela! I will not have the likes of you calling me a traitor!
It is for Runefaust's sake that I stand here today!
Mishaela:
Ooh, I'm so scared! Well, if you're as serious as you claim, I won't hold back!
Mishaela:
Face my servants in battle! And then come to my castle!
Battle 24 (Mishaela)
Mishaela:
So Max, you've finally made it here.
Welcome to the Demon Castle.
I'll say this - you have both strength and courage. But it will not save you now!
You can apologise to my poor Marionettes - in hell!
Come and meet your doom, Shining Force!
Anri:
Be careful, everyone! I sense a tremendous aura... Mishaela's magic is strong!
Tao:
Such malice... I feel like my energy's being drained, just standing here...
Narsha:
Mishaela is the most powerful mage in Runefaust...
Powers of light, give me the strength to protect my allies!
Nova:
Max, be careful of Mishaela.
She is truly a powerful sorceress. She has no equal in all of Runefaust!
Max:
...That Light Sabre... I've got to get it back somehow.
That sword just might be able to tell me something about my lost memories...
Then I could finally find out about Kane... about my brother.
END OF BATTLE 24
Mishaela:
...Well done, Shining Force.
A promise is a promise, Max...
You may take the Light Sabre...
(Max gets the "Sword of Light")
Mishaela:
Heroes... listen to me... Beware Darksol... He is a far more fearsome enemy than I.
He is the reason that Runefauast is now as it is. Cough... cough... cough...
My time here is up... but if Dark Dragon wakes and plunges the world into darkness...
Then we may yet meet again in Hell. I'll be waiting for you, Max...
Until then...
Farewell...
Max:
...Mishaela of Runefaust was a worthy adversary...
But now the Light Sabre is ours...
The fight has begun over the Book of Secrets, the key to reviving Dark Dragon...
After a fierce struggle, the advantage belongs to Darksol.
Is the mysterious mage truly going to revive a dragon that will destroy the entire world?
And what of the fight between Darksol and Kane, Max's long-lost brother?
Beset by uncertainty, Max makes for Prompt, the land of the gods...
