Town of Enrich
Script typed up by: Rune
Boy:
Wow, you must be mercenaries. You sure look strong. Um, I sorta need your help. If I pay you, will you help me out.
YES/NO (can repeat for both)
If YES
Boy:
Thank you. I really mean it. Could you please find my dad? He went to the mansion. If you bring him back, I'll give you the most important thing I have as a reward.
If NO
Boy:
You're mean. I'll bet you wouldn't be able to help me anyway. My dad is a very powerful mercenary too, but he hasn't come back from the mansion.
Girl:
That young lady who serves the King is Elise. She's the granddaughter of Rilix. She is pretty but... I don't like her. You look interested in Elise? Do you want me to tell you the town's rumor about her?
YES/NO (can repeat for both)
If NO
Girl:
Well... fine. I won't tell you then.
If YES
Girl:
The reason why animals get excited around her, is that she has... um... ferocious blood in her veins. That blood terrifies the beasts. They say that on a full-moon night... Her blood boils and she assumes a different shape and attacks people! Isn't that horrible? Do you want to hear more?
YES/NO (can repeat for both)
If NO
Girl:
Promise me you won't tell anyone what I told you, because everyone who has talked about this has vanished from this town! It's our secret. OK?
If YES
Girl:
During the day, she looks pale, tired, and doesn't go out in the sun unless she has to. But after the sun goes down, she looks better. I've seen dwarves and goblins, but something about Elise seems unnatural! Isn't that really scary? Do you still want to hear more?
YES/NO (can repeat for both)
If NO
Girl:
Promise me you won't tell anyone what I told you, because everyone who has talked about this has vanished from this town! It's our secret. OK?
If YES
Girl:
During the day, a man heard an agonized cry from the alley, so he went to look. There was Elise lying on the ground! She wasn't moving at all! And then... when he helped her into the shade... she had all these wrinkles, like an old woman! Isn't that frightening? Do you want to hear still more?
YES/NO (can repeat for both)
If NO
Girl:
Promise me you won't tell anyone what I told you, because everyone who has talked about this has vanished from this town! It's our secret. OK?
If YES
Girl:
I've heard that Elise isn't the granddaugher of Rilix, but her twin sister! You'd never guess that by looking at the two of them, would you? She respects Rilix in public, but some people say she's always insulting Rilix in private. Isn't that strange? Do you want to hear more?
YES/NO (can repeat for no)
If NO
Girl:
Promise me you won't tell anyone what I told you, because everyone who has talked about this has vanished from this town! It's our secret. OK?
If YES
Girl:
It seems that Elise has a lover, and someone saw them together late at night! Her lover was a man dressed completely in black leather. He looked like a dark wizard with those clothes. People are saying that he is the same guy that has gained an evil reputation in many countries recently by... ...Auugh!... What's... happening to...
Elise (the woman in red from before) appears, raises her hand and the girl disappears,
Elise is gone as well.
Old Man:
The cave to the south has a guardian spirit that comes out whenever a disaster strikes. While it's there,no one can go through.
Woman:
Have you seen my daugher? She hasn't come home yet. She was out playing in the sqaure... I hope she's careful. My daugher admires Sabato, and doesn't like those witches who took his place. Oh! Where is she? I worry so.
Dwarf:
Sheesh! We can't go north because the border is closed, and we can't go south because of the cave guardian... We can't go anywhere! We're stuck!
Young Lady:
You know about that man they are searching for named Rodi, don't you? Since he is from Far East Village, I bet he is very good at Ninjitsu. I hear that everybody there learns it!
Man:
Rumor has it that the sage Sabato hired the mercenary team of Lisa and Basso. I wonder why he sent for such a skilled duo? Something must be up!
House
Helena:
Rilix has to be older than I am. Her back is bent... she cannot be that young. That rumor must be untrue.
Beth:
A mercenary group like yours headed south since the border to the north is closed. I wonder if they can get through that cave that's supposed to be blocked?
Storyteller's Mansion
Head of storytellers:
Do you have any questions?
YES/NO (can repeat for both)
If NO
Head of storytellers:
Well, you seem to have found what you needed. Come back if you want to hear more history.
If YES
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.
Shop
Leon:
What I had thought was some sort of rock blocking the entrance to the southern cave was actually the Guardian! I had no idea anything living could be that big! With something like that blocking the way, I guess nobody is going south for a while... Unless a group of strong and brave mercenaries were to go and clear the way for others... Nudge, nudge.
Gena:
Have you heard tell about the huge snake called the Guardian of the Cave? It lives deep inside of the tunnels below the mountains south of Enrich. The snake comes out of its nest when disaster strikes and blocks the cave. That only compounds the disaster. I wonder what's going to go wrong next?
Pub
the mercenaries Freddie and Alan are no longer there
Bianca:
Elise and Rilix are sisters? Yes, I've heard of that rumor, but I wonder who started it? Can you believe that the young, beautiful Elise is the same age as Rilix. That can't be true.
Miles:
I heard an ugly rumor about Elise. That's a lie. If you saw her, you'd agree with me. How could anyone so beautiful....
Church
Carl:
Until they started the digging in Desire mine, nobody paid any attention to the origin of the mountain's name, Godspeak. It wasn't until they discovered a grand shrine inside, that they started to believe that the name had anything to do with religious activities, and that place was used as a center of worship long ago.
Melissa:
The only blessing from the Enrich War was that all the greedy officials were gone. But now we have that witch. We are no better off than before.
Nina:
The priest teaches us to always pray in times of need. But, can praying really
Sabastian:
During the Enrich War, Sabato reached Enrich forest without using the road. Hmm... Do you realize what that means? Why didn't I notice this before? It means that there is a way to travel to Desire without having to use the North road. The only problem is how Sabato reached Enrich forest. I'll have to think about that.
Enrich Castle
Soldier A:
Is it really you, Arthur! I could have sworn you hadn't left the castle. How did you get out? I'm sorry, but I was instructed by Sage Sabato not to let you pass. I don't know why but I've got my orders from Sabato not to let you in.
Soldier A:
I don't know why but I've got my orders from Sabato not to let you in.
Soldier B:
By orders of Sabato, I can not let you through. Please leave. If you need anything, you're instructed to go to Far East Village. I wonder why? Far East Village is due south from here. They have no connection to the outside world so I think it's a waste of time to go, but...
Soldier B:
Far East Village is due south from here. They have no connection to the outside world so I think it's a waste of time to go, but...
