Script typed up by: Trent
CHAPTER 7
Having left Dragonia behind, the Shining Force arrives at last in Prompt.
Prompt, the legendary kingdom of the children of the gods...
But a new challenge awaits Max and company in this land...
PROMPT
Max:
Are we in Prompt?
...Really?
Narsha:
I think so. I've never been this far, but it's not far from my birthplace.
But for a land of divine things, it is a little...
(Man walks in)
Man:
Who're you folks? We don't get visitors too often in these here parts...
Anri:
Forgive me for asking, but...Is this really the kingdom of Prompt?
Man:
Yup, that it be. Hey, you look a little peaky. Somethin' on your mind?
Nasrsha:
No, we're fine, but...
Man:
Well great, then. There isn't much to be doing, but you can sit and rest a while.
Stay as long as you like!
(Man leaves)
Max:
So this is Prompt, huh...
Curiouser and curiouser...
Anri:
Well, let's talk to the townspeople and have a look around.
Man #2:
You be most welcome in Prompt...you be!
Rindo Merchant:
It's business as usual for Rindo merchants! We're trading here too!
Boken:
So this is Prompt, eh? The villagers seem a little... slow...
I wonder if I took a wrong turn somewhere.
Man #3:
I be partial to thinkin'. I could sit around thinkin' all day and never get bored.
What's for dinner tonight? Thinkin' about stuff like that keeps me goin' for hours!
Man #4:
This 'ere be the school. School's good, they say... Wonder what it tastes like?
Inside school
Girl:
All I need to know I learned from my cat!
Girl (although it?s really a boy):
My brain hurts!
Boy:
School! Who needs it?
Nun:
Be quiet and sit down, you little beasts!
Nun #2:
This country is not very developed. So the priest decided to open this school.
No one does any work. I'm at my wit's end!
Man #5:
The Legacy of the Gods? Dark Dragon? Can you eat 'em? If not, I've no idea.
Man #6:
Thinkin' about difficult stuff makes me hungry, it does. Better to be havin' fun!
Man #7:
Shining Force? What does that taste like?
Man #8:
We be descendants of the gods, you say?! You got some funny ideas!
I don't know about any gods. I'd sooner have meself a goddess of a wife.
Man #9:
Metapha? Well, I ne'er heard of that.
I'll get a headache if you keep on with these difficult questions, I will.
Man #10 (blocking entrance):
You can't go no further than this, you can't. There be a scary monster.
Man #11:
You can't be goin' in there, I tell you! It's not allowed!
Man #12:
Ah... The power's still too low to regenerate the path.
I'd better postpone fixing my electronic organiser then...
Man #12:
............
How long you been there? You been there all that time?
IF NO
Man #12:
...There be no problem, then.
IF YES
Man #12:
Ha ha ha! I don't know what I be wafflin' about! Oh, it be nothin'! Oh, it be nothin'! Nothin'!
Guard:
This be the entrance to the castle. Impressive, eh?
PROMPT CASTLE
Guard:
You be most welcome here at Prompt castle, you be!
Guard #2:
This castle be our pride and joy! We'd defend it to the last, I tell you!
Guard #3:
At top of them there stairs, there's the King's Room, where the King be.
Boy:
Ah! I'm hungry!
Researcher:
I be a busy man! I 'ave nowt to say to you, I tell you!
Guard #4:
This be the old men's room. They're pounderin' away so don't be disturbing 'em!
Elder #2:
..............
Elder #3:
............
Guard #5:
Alef and Torasu be the pride of this land, they be!
Mage:
Hmmm Hmmm
Guard #8:
Eh? This door? Well, what could it be? I've no idea, I tell you.
King Kusuko's Room
Guard #6:
This be King Kusuko's Room!
Guard #7:
This be King Kusuko's Room!
Elder:
In here by the King of Prompt, King Kusko. You better be polite...
King Kusuko:
I'm the King of Prompt. Kusko be my name.
So why did you come to my country then, eh?
Max:
Ah, King Kusko.
We're investigating the Legacy of the Gods, otherwise known as Dark Dragon.
An evildoer is trying to release the Dragon and destroy the world. We must stop him...
King Kusuko:
What? Legacy of the Gods? Dark Dragon? I have no idea what you're on about.
You're a spy, sent by our enemies to find our weaknesses!
Max:
No! We......
King Kusko:
Oi, you lot! Sling 'em into jail!
(Max thrown into jail)
Max:
These iron bars are thick. No way we can break them.
(Boken enters)
Boken:
There I was, out on an adventure, and suddenly I'm here... Huh? Oh, it's you.
How did you get yourself locked up in there? Hold on, I'll get you out in a jiffy.
(Boken opens cell door)
Max:
Thanks! I owe you one.
Boken:
Don't mention it. Glad to be of service.
...Say, Max... I was thinking, maybe it's time I gave up on travelling.
Max:
Huh? What's gotton into you all of a sudden?
Boken:
Call it a change of heart. Know what I mean?
I've been to lots of places, and now I've had my fill.
I hope... that one day you'll be able to travel yourself, when things have calmed down a bit...
Well, be seeing you!
Guard at jail entrance:
Under here be the jail. This be where people that done bad things be put.
Guard at entrance to Kane's room:
You can't be goin' in here! There be an injured man havin' a rest, I tell you.
Throne room
Guard #6:
A message has come from the men sent to the Tower of the Ancients.
Guard #7:
Darksol's power is awesome. Alef and Torasu are fighting a losing battle.
Elder:
............
King Kusuko:
............
It seems that I was overheard. Never mind.
I caan't keep it hidden forever. I may as well tell you everything.
We folk of Prompt are ancient people...Direct descendants of what you people call the gods.
And you were right. Dark Dragon is the Legacy of the Gods.
The gods had their reasons to create Dark Dragon, but then its power scared them.
The Dragon was sealed away immediately. But not killed.. One day it will awaken...
To prepare for this...the gods chose two warriors and froze them in a deep sleep.
Those warriors were you and Lord Kane. If you want to know more, ask at the castle.
(if you talk to him again)
King Kusuko:
Alef and Torasu are Prompt's most skilled warriors.
You can leave it all to them and take a rest here in the castle.
Elder:
Darksol is at the Tower of the Ancients.
He's probably read the Book of Secrets and found out how to wake Dark Dragon by now.
Two sages from our land, Alef and Torasu, have gone there to try and stop him.
But Darksol is strong... They may destroy each other. But that's not the problem.
If Darksol manages to wake Dark Dragon......
Your Shining Force is the only ray of hope we have left now.
You must stay alive. This is why King Kusko had you put in jail.
Guard at jail entrance:
King Kusko put you in jail for your own good. Please try to forgive him.
Guard who was at entrance to Kane's room:
You can go in if you must, but try and keep the noise down.
Kane:
............
Max:
Kane...! What is he doing here?
(King Kusuko enters)
King Kusuko:
Yes, it is Kane. He was found lying unconscious near the castle.
Max:
But... My brother and Darksol disappeared under Dragonia!
How did he get here?
King Kusuko:
Most likely, Darksol created a magical warp in the fabric of space.
Kane was able to break through, but the resulting blast likely sent him here.
Max:
I see... Is he hurt at all? He won't answer when I talk to him.
King Kusuko:
No need to worry. His wounds have already been treated. He is merely tired.
Be patient. Once Lord Kane recovers, you will be able to fight together once again.
You, too, must be tired from your many battles. Please, rest yourselves.
Max:
But...aren't the people of this land fighting against Darksol even now?
I have to...
King Kusuko:
Do not concern yourself. As I said before...
You and Kane are our last hope. You must rest now.
Note:
[King Kusuko is also spelt Kusko at varying points in the game]
(if you talk to him again)
King Kusuko:
When Lord Kane recovers, you will be able to fight together again.
Just be patient until then.
(as Max tries and leaves the room)
Kane:
Pl...please, King Kusuko. Let Max go to the Tower of the Ancients.
King Kusuko:
Kane, do not overexert yourself! Your wounds...
Kane:
People are fighting and dying out there so that we may live!
Max is not the type to just sit and let others make such a sacrifice.
He has always been that way, since he was little...
......
King Kusuko:
Kane...
He's passed out again.
King Kusuko:
Your words were not spoken in vain, Kane.
Lord Max, I ask you to go to the Tower of the Ancients.
Please save the lives of Alef and Torasu!
Max:
All right! I mean, yes, King Kusuko!
Shining Force! To the Tower of the Ancients!
King Kusuko:
May the gods be with you. I shall be waiting for news of your victory!
(King Kusuko leaves room)
Guard who was at entrance to Kane's room:
Please leave Lord Kane to us. We'll take care of him.
At the King's throne room
King Kusuko:
Max, Please give Alef and Torasu your assistance.
I look forward to hearing good tidings.
Elder:
I have no more to say. Please do what you can to save Alef and Torasu.
Guard #4:
The elders are waiting for you. Please go and listen to what they have to say.
Elder #2:
The gods...the ancients were afraid. Afraid of the new creatures they'd made.
They created a final beast in order to protect themselves
Elder #3:
The civilisation of the gods became so advanced that they could create new life.
But then their creations began to threaten their masters...
Guard #5:
Alef and Torasu are making their way to the Tower of the Ancients.
They've gone to risk their lives to put a stop to the evil Darksol's ambitions!
Guard #8:
Using this path, you can get to Metapha. But...
It's been sealed for a long time, so it'll take a while before you can use it.
Guard #2:
This castle is our crown jewel! We will protect it to the end!
PROMPT
Man #11:
If you're interested feel free to go inside.
Man #12:
This book was written entirely by the ancient gods. Want to know what it says?
IF NO
Man #12:
Oh, well that's a shame.
IF YES
Man #12:
In here, it explains all about the paths, and the civilisation of the gods.
But unfortunately, we haven't made sense of it all yet...
Rindo Merchant:
What's going on in this town?
Everyone seems to have changed all of a sudden...
Man:
You be welcome to Prompt! ...I guess I can stop talking like that now!
Man #2:
Where did we come from, and where are we going?
Questions like this bother me...
Man #3:
If you're going to make a school, it should push the pupils a bit harder.
Nun:
What on earth's going on? The children have all become so bright!
Nun #2:
What's going on? I feel like they're teaching me!
Girl:
I'm bored...! This class is way too easy!
Boy:
No time to study! I must help repair the path!
Boy #2:
Teacher! You've got it wrong! The answer's 3.14159265.
Man #4:
The true form of the Legacy of the Gods is Dark Dragon, you know...
Some highly advanced people, almost like gods, brought that monster into this world.
It's a sad fact...
Man #5:
Everyone in this land is descended from the ancients.
We all have a duty to see Dark Dragon sealed away.
Man #6:
It was tough getting here, right? You must have fought many battles...
Still, that was all just preparation for the great task of sealing away Dark Dragon.
Man #7:
You are the only one now who can stop Darksol and seal away Dark Dragon.
Man #8:
Metapha is the home of the ancient gods.
If you go there, you'll find a great power, which can be used to seal away Dark Dragon.
Man at entrance:
The Tower of the Ancients is ahead. Darksol's performing the Rite of the Dragon.
Darksol is a fearsome enemy. Be very careful.
BATTLE 25
Nova:
Max, look to the east. That is the Tower of the Ancients.
Narsha:
Then Darksol is...
Nova:
(if Narsha is not in the Force)
Yes. Darksol is in that tower.
Anri:
I'm worried for the safety of those two sages from Prompt, Alef and Torasu.
We should avoid unnecessary battles and hurry to our goal.
Max, if you need be, you can press ahead to the tower by yourself.
Khris:
(if in the Force)
I'll be right behind you, ready to heal.
Lowe:
(if in the Force)
Give it all you've got, Max! I'll be back here, ready to heal ya!
Gong:
(if in the Force)
Max, you can depend on me for healing!
END OF BATTLE 25
Nova:
Max, the enemies have all been destroyed.
Max:
This took longer than I thought... We've got to hurry!
TOWER OF THE ANCIENTS
BATTLE 26
Demonmaster:
Listen!
We must stand guard until Lord Darksol has finished!
Crush the Shining Force! Do not leave a single one of them alive!
Nova:
(If Narsha is not in the Force)
Mmm? That's odd... Darksol is nowhere to be seen
Narsha:
...Darksol is nowhere to be seen!
Max:
He must be at the top of the tower, then...
Narsha:
(Spoken by Nova if Narsha is not in the Force)
We've got to hurry! Let's take care of the enemies here and go after Darksol!
END OF BATTLE 26
Demonmaster:
I am defeated...
My life is at an end...
But we have won! We have succeeded in buying enough time for Lord Darksol!
Anri:
I sense an aura of evil from the top of the tower...
Max:
Darksol... What is he doing at the top of the tower?
I'm worried about the sages of Prompt, too...
...Let's go!
TOWER OF THE ANCIENTS
Torasu:
Y...you are...
Alef:
...Lord Max! You're Lord Max, aren't you?
You've come to save us! Forgive us, my lord...
Torasu:
Darksol has already left for the top of the tower.
We fought as hard as we could, but his power was too great.
Max:
Don't worry about it. I'll look after Darksol. You two rest here.
Alef:
Yes, my lord. As soon as these wounds heal, we will join you in battle.
(Torasu and Alef join the Shining Force!)
Alef:
Wait, my lord! You're not going in alone without any companions, are you?
Max:
There's something I need to... find out about Darksol.
Alef:
...I see. Then at least promise me you'll be careful.
(if you talk to Alef again)
Alef:
I'm sorry, Max. If only we had a little more strength...
Torasu:
Don't worry about us. You must hurry. Darksol's at the top of the tower...
(top of the tower)
Darksol:
Ha! So you've finally arrived, eh, Max?
Hear my words! The Tower has already been set in motion. A great power is gathering!
I doubt it means anything to you without your memories...
But over this continent floats a man-made star, which emits an invisible power.
That power is the source of all the magic on Rune.
And now it is gathering at the Tower and being channelled to Dark Dragon...
(Narsha enters)
Narsha:
Max! Why did you come here alone?
Max:
I'm sorry. But I had to...
Narsha:
Forgive me. But if only Darksol...
If only he hadn't turned up, my father would be a good king. It's all his fault...
And I will make him pay!
Darksol:
Ha ha ha ha! This is a pleasant surprise - the Princess of Runefuast herself!
I am honoured and delighted to have you witness this event!
Dark Dragon will soon awaken. The Legacy of the Gods will be revived at last!
(rumble)
Darksol:
The great and ancient powers of darkness will soon be mine... Huh?
Darksol:
What is going on?
(Kane enters)
Darksol:
...KANE!
Max:
Kane!
Kane:
Darksol! Your scheme...ends...here...
Darksol:
Ha! You don't look very well, Kane...Are you sure you're up to this?
Why, you can barely stand... Let me send your suffering!
(Darksol shoots out a bolt of lightening which strikes Kane)
Kane:
Aaaaaargh!
Darksol:
Rest in peace... for all eternity...
After all, Kane...it's what you've always wanted...
Max:
Darksol! What have you done to Kane? You murderous scum...!
Darksol:
Silence, fool! It's already too late!
Kane, you made a valiant effort in coming here... But you were a little too late.
There is no limit to the power out there, but I already have enough to revive Dark Dragon.
Indeed, my power is already far too great to stop...
(Darksol disappears)
Kane:
Listen to me, Max...
There's no hope left for me.
Max:
Don't say that! It's not too late to treat your wounds...
Kane:
I know my own body... better than anyone else.
I've been using this suit to teleport...but the strain was greater than I thought.
This time...I've pushed it too far. Before it's too late there is something I need to tell you. Listen closely...
(flashback)
?:
Are the two of you ready?
Kane:
Yes mum.
Max:
Yeah, I guess.
?:
All right, then. I'll start the cryogenic sleep sequence.
Kane:
What's wrong? Is the equipment not working?
Max, What's wrong, mum?
It isn't...broken, is it?
?:
...No, it's not broken. I'm sorry.
I know this is harder for you than it is for me. But even so...
Kane:
Don't worry about us. We've been training for this day ever since we were kids.
Max:
Kane's right. We're going to the future to save the planet's future!
?:
Thank you... Kane... Max...
The creation of Dark Dragon was our generation's crime.
And now it is up to you to atone for that crime.
...
We may never see each other again. But I will always be watching over you.
Kane, Max, you must work together to protect the lives of the people of the future!
Kane:
Yes, mum... I will give it my all.
Max:
Yes...
...Goodbye, mum
(back to present day)
Max:
...
...
So we two brothers were sent to the future...
Narsha:
What's wrong? Your memory! Did you...?
Kane:
...Max!
Max:
... I remember! I remember now, Kane!
Our mission...We were going to team up and seal Dark Dragon!
We feared the new race that we ourselves had created...
And so to destroy it, we created Dark Dragon...and sowed the seeds of ruin.
To atone for that sin... we tried to put it to sleep.
Kane:
Do you remember now? Do you remember, Max?
Max:
Yes, I remember everything...
Kane:
Good... Heh heh. Look like I won't die in vain after all.
Here, Max, take this sword with you.
(Max got the Dark Sabre!)
Kane:
When that blade is combined with another...
The weapon to defeat...
Dark Dragon...
Max:
Kane, don't try to speak.
Kane:
Go to Metapha. There, all will be revealed to you.
There should be a few Adam-types left, too... They'll help you...
(Kane dies)
Max:
Kane!
...
(rumbles)
Torasu:
Lord Max! The tower is about to collapse!
Alef and the others have already made their escape.
Narsha:
All right! Max, we'd better get going, too...
Max:
...!
Narsha:
What? What's wrong? What's come over you?
Max:
...!
Narsha:
No...you haven't...
Torasu:
Hmm? There's something strange about Lord Max... Perhaps he's lost his voice?
Narsha:
Is that what's happened, Max?
I...I see now... He's overcome by the shock of his brother's death...
Torasu:
Come, both of you! We must hurry!
Narsha:
All right. We've got to get out of here. Come on, Max.
Max:
...
(they leave the castle)
(Castle falls to rubble)
PROMPT
Man:
King Kusuko is waiting at the castle. Please hurry.
Guard (out front of the castle):
Welcome back. King Kusuko is waiting for you.
PROMPT CASTLE
Guard #3:
King Kusuko awaits you!
Guard #6:
Welcome back, Max!
Guard #7:
Welcome back, Max!
King Kusuko:
I've heard everything. It really is terribly about Lord Kane...
And... Max, you've lost your voice, I hear...
Max:
............
King Kusuko:
So it's all true? It must have been tough. But don't lose hope.
The paths have finally been repaired.
If you have the Orb of Light, the path will be clear and you can go to Metapha.
Get hold of the legendary sword and prepare for the revival of Dark Dragon.
(if you talk to him again)
King Kusuko:
Clear the path with the Orb of Light and go to Metapha.
You must take the legendary sword with you.
Without it, you won't be able to seal away Dark Dragon.
Elder:
The sword with the power to seal Dark Dragon is called the Chaosbreaker.
It is a legendary weapon, which combines the forces of dark and light.
Guard at jail entrance:
Now that Lord Kane has gone...you are our last remaining hope.
Guard who was at entrance to Kane's room:
I must apologise to you...
I was unable to stop Lord Kane...
Boy:
Where's Lord Kane? He left the castle before he'd got better...
Researcher:
Various creatures challenged the gods... the ancients... to fight.
It wasn't because they disliked the gods. They were fighting for their dignity.
I guess they wanted to prove that life is life...whether you're born naturally or not.
Guard #4:
The elders are waiting for you. It seems they have more to talk about with you.
Elder #2:
The Light Sabre and the Dark Sabre... The two together... will produce a
power to beat that chaos that threatens to destroy the world.
Elder #3:
Heard of the Spring of Recollection, Max? It's kind of...
...artificial brain. The Spring is activated by the Orb of Light.
It will reveal the information that the bearer of the Orb seeks.
(if you talk to him again)
Elder:
If you're going to Metapha, you must find the Spring of Recollection.
There you're sure to find the information you seek.
Guard #5:
Thank you so much for saving Alef and Torasu.
Mage:
At last the path is clear. The long journey from Manarina was well worthwhile.
Guard #8:
The path is clear! Now you can go to Metapha!
Max walks to the door
Max's Orb of Light began to glow faintly in the dark!
The door opens
METAPHA
Adam:
Master! Long time no see.
Max:
............
Adam:
...Have you lost your voice? I see......
Max:
............
Adam:
You must go to the Spring of Recollection and use the Orb of Light.
Max's Orb of Light began to glow faintly in the dark!
Spirit of the Spring appears
Spirit of the Spring:
...Max, I'm glad you made it here safely...
Max:
...
Spirit of the Spring:
I know that you have lost your voice
I have been watching you. I know about Kane as well.
Max:
...
Spirit of the Spring:
I have brought suffering to both of you. Please forgive me...
There is no time to lose. You must bring the weapons needed to seal Dark Dragon.
Adam will show you the way.
(Spirit dissapears)
Adam:
My name is Adam. It's been a long time, Lord Max.
I wanted to help you as soon as I could. But...
I had a duty to protect Metapha.
Lord Max, please try to remember. That sad time......
(flashback)
Adam:
You and Lord Kane were the warriors chosen to seal away Dark Dragon...
After a deep sleep and the passing of many years, you awoke here in Metapha.
You were supposed to take 100 of us Adam Type robots into battle with you.
But then Darksol showed up...
Darksol:
Fools! I'll never let you seal Dark Dragon!
Dark Dragon will rise again! Together, we will reduce this world to ashes!
...Demon Breath!
(robots destroyed)
Adam:
The robots have been destroyed by Darksol's Demon Breath.
Kane:
Max! I'll hold them off! You've got to get out of here!
Adam:
Thanks to Kane, you, at least, were able to escape with your life.
However... Before the memories lost during your long sleep could be brought back...
you were tossed into the sea.
I was able to keep myself from being discovered. Unfortunately...
Kane and our leader, Chaos, were captured by Darksol and brainwashed by the evil ones.
Of the 100 robots in our unit, only I now remain.
I will fight alongside you!
(Adam joins the Shining Force!)
Adam:
To seal Dark Dragon, we need the Chaos Breaker.
The device needed to call forth the Chaos Breaker is inside. Let us go, quickly!
Chaos:
LORD DARKSOL'S ORDERS
BATTLE 27
Chaos:
LORD DARKSOL'S ORDERS
Adam:
Watch yourselves. Chaos is the leader of the robots. He is formidable in battle.
Nova:
Hmm... So this is the heart of Metapha, land of the gods...
Oh! Sorry about that. I was just fascinated by all these wonderful machines...
Ahem. Now then... Max! What are your orders?
Max:
...
Nova:
...Ah! Excuse me.
...Max, while your voice is gone, you won't be able to cast the Egress spell.
Do not forget this!
Anri:
I'll take it from here. Listen up, everyone! The heart of Metapha is just ahead.
We have to break through if Max is to get the sword he needs to seal Dark Dragon!
(If Anri is not in battle)
Mae:
I'll take it from here. Keep calm, everyone!
We have to break through or we'll never get the sword needed to seal Dark Dragon!
(If neither Anri nor Mae are in battle)
Nova:
Fight hard, warriors! The heart of Metapha lies just ahead!
If we are to seal Dark Dragon, we must get the Chaos Breaker, no matter what the cost!
END OF BATTLE 27
Chaos:
GRRRGRGR...GRGRRR...GRRRGGgggg...
...Lord Max! It is you! What have I been... Yes... now I remember...
I was controlled by Darksol... He is already at the Castle of the Ancients, my lord.
There is another gate of the Ancients in Runefaust, and it has been opened.
Darksol is beginning the final ritual to revive Dark Dragon.
Quickly! There is no time...
Lord Max...
I... have ...failed... you...
(Chaos dies)
Max:
...
METAPHA
On the Stones:
When light and dark are as one, so shall be a sword to destroy chaos.
A shining blade for the power of light.
A shadowy blade for the power of darkness
(once the Chaos Breaker has been made)
Spirit of the Spring:
That is Chaos Breaker. It is the only force capable of sealing Dark Dragon.
Max, the blade is yours to take up!
(Max got the Chaos Breaker!)
Spirit of the Spring:
...
Even Chaos, who was to have been your staunchest ally, was converted to evil by Darksol.
With your memories lost, you were left to face an unfamiliar world alone...
I was so worried...that you would fail in your mission... But now I see...
You've got so many wonderful friends who believe in you.
They are your real treasures.
Know that they are the true power to seal Dark Dragon.
The destiny of Metapha has now been fulfilled.
The spring that supports me will soon run dry.
Max:
...!
Spirit of the Spring:
Don't look so sad. It is time to go.
Believe in your friends - and fight bravely to the end!
PROMPT CASTLE
Guard #8:
Welcome back. First, report to King Kusko!
Mage:
I have received a communication from my friends in Manarina.
The Spirit of the Recollection there has just this moment dried up as well...
Guard #5:
Our lookouts report that Runefaust has tightened its defences.
The must realise this will be the final battle.
Guard #4:
The elders are waiting for you. It seems they have more to talk about with you.
Elder #2:
Oh! So you've finally got the Chaosbreaker!
Use it with care!
(if you talk to him again)
Elder #2:
The Chaosbreaker is a mysterious sword with the power to destroy chaos.
With that sword, it should be possible to seal away Dark Dragon.
Elder #3:
It's very ancient, the Spring of Recollection... From the time of the gods.
It exists to guide heroes of destiny who awaken from time to time. Like you and Kane...
King Kusuko:
I'm glad you are safe, Max. I've heard all about Metapha.
I know how difficult it must be for you. But forget it now. I have a mission for you.
...It seems Darksol has somehow returned to Runefaust.
Runefaust and Guardiana have always been brother nations. Guardiana protests the West
Gate of the Castle of the Ancients, and Runefaust the East Gate.
Darksol has got the Book of Secrets.
No doubt he will find out from the book how to open the East Gate in Runefaust.
He'll gather his strength at the Tower of the Ancients. If he gets inside the Castle
of the Ancients, it may be impossible to stop him waking Dark Dragon.
You are our only hope. But the whole of Runefaust army is against you.
You can't seal Dark Dragon unless you beat them. The final battle is here.
Are you ready?
IF NO
King Kusuko:
I understand. Come back when you are ready.
IF YES
King Kusuko:
Very well. Fight bravely, Max!
I will have the road to Runefaust opened.
(if you talk to him again)
King Kusuko:
On that path to Runefaust there are many strong enemies.
Don't overdo it. If you need to, have a rest in our land to regain your strength.
Elder:
It is essential to use the Chaos Breaker when fighting Dark Dragon.
That sword is the only weapon that can combat the creature.
Boy:
Sorry... I had no idea. I can't believe that Lord Kane is dead...
BATTLE 28
Narsha:
Look! Runefaust is just beyond that castle wall.
Lyle:
So this is the last line of defence...looks like they put their strongest men here!
Guntz:
All right! It's time to finish this once and for all!
I'll show you what this Steam Suit is really capable of!
Khris:
Be careful, everyone. Anyone who is wounded can come to me for healing!
Nova:
Max, we've got the enemy on the run now. Runefaust lies just ahead!
Max:
...
Prompt and Metapha, homes to the gods and their heirs.
It was there that Max recovered all his memories.
At least, he and his brother learned of their ancient destinies as warriors.
But the death of Kane was too much for Max to bear... and he lost his voice.
And the revival of Dark Dragon is near...
The Shining Force is now preparing to venture forth into Runefaust.
The final battle is at home.
