Shining the Holy Ark
USA Version Script
Town of Enrich
Script typed up by: Rune
Young Man (blue shirt):
I heard about those mercenaries who went to the mansion from someone who went to look for them... It was awful! Like a charnel house. There were bits of flesh and remains of clothing strewn everywhere. And it looked like something had been feeding on the remains...
Old Man:
Ah, Arthur! We heard that you rescued the King. We are all eternally grateful. You remind me of... my grandchild. I... *sniff* Excuse me. I suddenly feel very sad. You see, I don?t believe that either my daughter or grandchild are still alive.
Dog:
Woof! Woof!
Young Man:
This is the castle town Enrich. Many unfortunate things have happened recently, due to Rilix?s meddling, but hopefully now things will settle down.
Boy:
My dad isn?t back yet... I?m supposed to leave town soon. My dad?s friend, who?s been taking care of me, says that we have to leave now, and can?t wait any more for my dad... I?m afraid of him, but I have to go with him. My dad used to tell me when I was little that I shouldn?t cry, no matter what happens. That?s what it took to be a stronger man. But right now, I really want to cry.
Dwarf:
Since you returned to Enrich through the southern cave, it must mean that the cave is now safe. Things are really looking up!
Woman:
Where is my daughter? I can?t find her anywhere. I don?t know what to do... Where could she have gone?
Man:
Oh, yeah. I remember now. The mercenary named Lisa... She was the one collecting information in town. I saw her talking to Elise. I turned away for a moment, and then they were both gone.
Young Lady:
I heard that Rodi wasn?t a bad guy after all. Isn?t that right? I?m glad because I thought he was cute. It was the witch, not the King, that wanted him dead.
House
Helena:
Since the King was released from Rilix?s spell, this town has started to return to life. Pretty soon, the country will be back to normal.
Beth:
Many years ago, a local girl was taken by the master of Aborigine Mansion. She came back a few days later, but couldn?t remember anything. Later, it was discovered that she was pregnant, and she left town. Rumors say that the father of her child must have been the master of the mansion. I heard that the girl went down south. If her child is still alive, he or she would be in their twenties now.
Storyteller?s Mansion
Celia:
The special abilities of the natives are inherited from Vandal, although they?ve been passed on in various ways.
Debra:
I wonder why the elder decided to tell you, an outlander, about the Vandals.
Brahma:
Since telling you the tale of Vandal the elder has been very preoccupied. Perhaps he has remembered something that he forgot to tell you about.

Welcome again, mercenary! I have more to tell you. Come here and listen.

if you select Thousand-Year Kingdom
Head of storytellers:
A beautiful culture once flourished here under an administrator named Innovator. This was before the tyrant Vandal took control of the kingdom. Under his reign, people lived in fear, with all their hopes and dreams crushed. Ultimately, the kingdom was destroyed by a mysterious power that came from beyond the sky. Legends say Vandal fled, and took refuge in a tomb to await the rebirth of his kingdom.
if you select Vandal
Head of storytellers:
It was said that Vandal possessed incredible physical strength and powerful magic. He was a very cruel and evil ruler that was said to have a monstrous appearance, and repeatedly massacred his own people to satify his whims. His offspring inherited his aspect, and soon it was found that they were not affected by aging or death. The Vandal clan has never been numerous, but they are all very powerful.
if you select Rebirth of the Kingdom
Head of storytellers:
If one thing could bring about rebirth of the Kingdom of Darkness, it would be the power of corruption, for that has the potential to re-awaken Vandal. Corruption is a petty power created from human grief and tragedy, but when gathered in large quantities, it becomes a powerful evil. However, only the Holy Ark is capable of achieving this.
if you select Holy Ark
Head of storytellers:
The Holy Ark is a vessel that is said to absorb and contain corruption. It was created by the gods and is guarded by the Spirits. The vessel was placed in a room with the Spirits and it protects the Spirits from the evils of the world. However, legends say that if the Holy Ark is opened, the earth will be engulfed in horror as the evil is released. Then, everything will disappear with the ark.
if you select Apostle of Light
Head of storytellers:
Legends tell us of a source of power called the Child of Light. This power will inherit a human body and develop with its host. It will grow with its host, both spiritually as well as physically. Eventually, this source of power will have to be released. In order to do this, the services of a priest known as the Apostle of Light are needed.
Head of storytellers:
Do you have any questions?
YES/NO
if YES
Head of storytellers:
(Same as above.)
if NO
Head of storytellers:
I believe that I?ve told you everything you need to know. Now go...

Gena:
I heard that Rodi wasn?t a bad guy after all. Isn?t that right? I?m glad because I thought he was cute. It was the witch, not the King, that wanted him dead.
O?Brien:
Things will be much better now that the way to the south is open. The town will bustle with activity just like it did before.
Stan:
Have you found any pixies yet?
YES/NO (can repeat for both)
If YES
Stan:
Pixies aren't too useful in battle, they scare easily, but when an enemy first appears, they can really help you out by getting in a first strike on your enemies.
If NO
Stan:
It's a sheer waste if you don't use them. Pixies usually hide in holes and sometimes behind rocks. They are pretty little creatures. You should examine any area that looks susicious.
