1.0, Introduction

 

The Land of Areulla.

 

Long ago, a race known as the Lycanth controlled Areulla, people that could change themselves into beasts. The Lycanths possessed a highly advanced culture and through it, they created a society of order. With their great physical strength and minds, they managed to accomplish a unique revolution. No one could imagine how they managed to create such a delicate society or how much they excelled in life and their technology due to their ferocious outside appearance. But one day, some of them made use of a technology that they had sealed and many Lycanths were killed in a massacre.

 

The killing was not intentional but this gave the country an opportunity to be split into two and a war known as the "Weremen Battle" began. Right after the battle, the number of Lycanths had diminished and those few that still had control of the continent decided to join the humans. Although Areulla was in a state of disorder with the Lycanth on the brink of extinction, humans managed to establish order and regains control of the country.

 

Humans soon began to take action to eradicate the Lycanth, claiming they will be the race that destroys the world. It is said that they feared the power the Lycanth possessed when they changed into beasts, even though their appearance looks no different from a normal human. Under imperial orders, the Church accuses the Lycanth of heresy and hunted them while the knights prepared themselves in the case of any uprising. The eradication programme known as the "Lycanth Hunt" meant that whoever reported information about any Lycanth they saw, they would be rewarded.

 

One day, one wounded knight reached a village. Little did our young Caius know that he was going to be dragged into the beginning of a new age of chaos in Areulla...

4.0, Menus

Pressing X brings up the following in-game menu:

 

Once you’re in the Techs menu, you can see there’s various button combinations you can use to perform a Technique. Just go ahead and assign the white ones listed towards the bottom. Those in red require you to perform a certain white technique a number of times.

 

By choosing Arrange then choosing the “Organise (編成)” option that appears below it, can rearrange your party order so that you don’t always have to control Caius.

 

For AI tactics, there are 3 main actions you can define; Movement, Target and Moves.

 

(1) Movement; you can choose to leave it to the AI, hold back, be reserved, keep a good balance, be careful or make them treasure their life.

(2) Target; you can have them target enemies freely, same enemy, different enemy, closest enemy, furthest enemy, most dangerous enemy and the weakest enemy.

(3) Moves; you can have them use them freely, go all out, use attack moves only, balanced, save up TP or use them all.

 

Your save file lists the play time, number of encounters, greatest number of hits, number of times a member was knocked out and number of times you ran away.

 

5.0, Camping and Cooking

 

The cooking mini game is very simple. Simply either pick your own ingredients (they have to be part of a recipe that you already have or don’t have) or, choose to use a recipe you’ve already obtained from NPCs. Once the mini game’s started, you’ll have 10 seconds to repeat a certain action. For example, here you have to rub your stylus up and down across the double ended arrow 10 times before the time is up. Other actions include drawing circles. It’s a simple as that!

 

 

There is a certain flow of time in the game although not in real time of course. Generally more powerful monsters appear during the night than the day and you may find some chests lying around in one time period but not the other. Either way, you can use a tent (テント) to camp and your party will rest until night or day depending when you camp. You’ll be able to hear them talk about various things too and not just a quick flash of a campfire scene.

Village of Fern

 

The mystical and illusional Land of Areulla.

 

It has been 100 years since the “Weremen Battle” took place when the Leymon reigned the land.

 

Control has since been taken over by humans and the Leymon have been persecuted across the country.

 

Even Fern, a village on the outskirts of the country was not an exception…

 

Ramrus

Caius, where have you been?

 

Miss Rubia was looking for earlier.

 

She mentioned something about you promising her something?

 

Caius

Uh-oh!

 

I promised her we would go to the forest together today.

 

I forgot all about it…

 

Ramrus

I heard she’s waiting at the church.

 

Go there quickly.

 

Caius

OK…

 

Hey, dad.

 

I want to go with you the next time you’re going out on a business trip…

 

…Could I?

 

Ramrus

…No. I can’t take you with me.

 

Caius

Why?!

 

I’m 15 now.

 

I’m the only one in the village that has never been outside.

 

Everyone else is helping out in the village…

 

I’m going to be a laughing stock if I stay like this.

 

Ramrus

Don’t mind them.

 

When the time comes, I will take you with me.

 

Caius

…I’ve heard that so many times now.

 

But you’ve never kept your promise.

 

I want to see the outside world!

 

Caius runs out the house.

 

l  Go NW to the church.

 

Church

Rubia

There you are, Caius!

 

Where were you? Lets go to the forest now.

 

Caius

 

Rubia

What’s wrong?

 

You had a fight with your father again, didn’t you.

 

It’s written all over your face.

 

Caius

Shut up. It has nothing do with you, Rubia.

 

Lets just go to the forest. I’m leaving you behind if you keep on talking.

 

Caius starts running off.

 

Rubia

Why you…

 

Can’t you be a little nicer to ladies?

 

I’m going to hate you’re always going to be so discourteous.

 

Caius

Wh- What’s wrong with you…

 

Rubia

Huhu. So you do care about me.

 

I have something to ask you, Caius.

 

What will you do if I wasn’t around anymore?

 

Caius

What are you talking about?

 

Rubia
Will you be lonely?

 

I’ll be going to Janna next winter.

 

Caius

With your father? I guess it’s not easy working in the church.

 

Janna is really far to travel to.

 

Rubia

No, we’re not just travelling this time.

 

Starting next spring, I’m going to be a student at the church school.

 

I’m going to be studying there to become a priestess…

 

Caius

Next spring huh…

 

So how long will you be there for?

 

Rubia

…8 years maybe.

 

Caius

…That’s a long time.

 

But if that’s what you decided. I wish you luck.

 

I’ll go visit you now and then.

 

Rubia

…OK.

 

Well, lets go to the forest Caius.

 

l  Walk over to the well for an event.

 

Scarlet

Oh, what’s wrong Caius? You must never have a fight with Rubia.

 

Caius

I’m not fighting with her!

 

Rubia

Yes, we’re alright.

 

Caius always listens to what I say.

 

Don’t you, Caius?

 

Caius

Hey! Quit it!

 

l  Continue out the village.

 

Rubia

Hmm? Someone’s here…

 

Something’s wrong with him, Caius.

 

Caius

That armour’s from the Knights Unit… It’s made of gold…

 

What’s a knight doing here…

 

The knight collapses.

 

Lets go and see, Rubia.

 

Rubia

OK.

 

Runs up to the knight.

 

Caius

Are you alright? Wake up!

 

Ugh, he’s wounded badly…

 

Rubia

Oh no…

 

I’ll go let my father know! You watch him, Caius!

 

Rubia runs off.

 

Caius

How did you get these wounds…

 

Knight

…Monsters… attacked us…

 

Caius

Monsters?

 

But how can that be… Monsters really attacked you?

 

Knight

I… have to… deliver the… Pacient… quickly…

 

I have to…

 

Caius

Hang on!

 

Knight

The Pacient… life… must stop it…

 

Caius

Pacient…? What in Areulla is this all about?

 

Rubia comes running.

 

Rubia

Caius!

 

I brought my father here!

 

Villagers come running.

 

Caius

…Father, Priest…

 

Rubia’s Papa

I see… Those are some terrible wounds…

 

Caius

Father…

 

He said he was attacked by monsters.

 

There might be monsters just outside the village.

 

Villager 1

Monsters?!

 

This is bad! We have to let everyone know and strengthen the village defences!

 

Rubia’s Papa

Hmmm.

 

We must first have a look at this man’s wounds.

 

How is he?

 

Ramrus

He’s still breathing.

 

We might be able to save him if we hurry and get him some place safe.

 

Rubia’s Papa

Then lets take him to the church.

 

Villager 1

I’ll let everyone know what happened.

 

Church

 

Rubia

..Hey, Caius.

 

Caius

Hmmm?

 

Rubia
Can this person be saved?

 

And do you really think there’s monsters here like he said?

 

Caius

I don’t know.

 

But dad says his wounds weren’t caused by the creatures of the forest…

 

Rubia

…They won’t attack the village will they?

 

Caius

Don’t worry. Dad and the villagers are here.

 

Even if monsters did attack, we can take care of them.

 

And I’m here too. There’s no need to worry.

 

The priest and Ramrus arrives.

 

Rubia’s Papa

How is the Knight doing? Has anything happened?

 

Rubia

Oh, father.

 

He hasn’t regained consciousness yet. His fever hasn’t died down either…

 

Ramrus

There’s going to be a lot of work tonight.

 

We’ll just have to pray that he’ll be alright.

 

Caius

Dad.

 

Can I stay here tonight and watch over him?

 

We have to have someone to watch over him, don’t we?

 

Ramrus

We do but…

 

What will we do if something bad happened? We can’t leave you children here.

 

Rubia’s Papa

It will be fine.

 

It was them who saved this man after all. I can understand why they want to stay.

 

We can’t leave them alone but I’m sure they can help me out here.

 

Caius

Thank you, Priest.

 

Ramrus

Caius, a life is at stake here.

 

It won’t be an easy job.

 

Caius

Yes, I know.

 

Ramrus

Very well.

 

Night dawns.

 

Knight

Ugh…

 

Ugh…

 

Rubia’s Papa

He looks to be in much pain. We’ll have to give him some more medicine…

 

Rubia, come help me prepare some please.

 

Rubia

OK. You watch the Knight, Caius.

 

Caius

…Sure.

 

Rubia walks off with her father.

 

Knight

Ugh…

 

Where… am I…? What… happened… to me…?

 

Where… did they… go…?

 

Caius

Hey, you’re awake.

 

This is the Village of Fern.

 

You were heavily wounded so we brought you here to the church and treated you.

 

Knight

…Church? Young man… What… is your name?

 

Caius

I’m Caius.

 

Knight

Caius…

 

Will you please listen to my final wish?

 

Inside my bag… is a large red… crystal…

 

Caius goes to find it.

 

Caius

…This?

 

Knight

Take… that Pacient to the capital of Janna… where the Arch Duke is…

 

Please…

 

Caius
Huh?

 

But Janna is really far from here.

 

I can’t deliver it alone…

 

Knight
Please… It is my final wish…

 

You have to… get it to the Arch Duke…

 

You have to…

 

Caius

No…! Hang on!

 

Don’t die!

 

Please wake up!!

 

….

 

…He’s not breathing.

 

He’s dead.

 

You obtain the Pacient.

 

This red crystal he left behind…

 

It looks so much like the stone in the memento pendant my mother gave me…

 

It can’t be… They can’t be the same.

 

The two stones shine brightly.

 

Wh- What the! What’s going on?!

 

My pendant and the Pacient’s both shining!

 

Why are they shining!

 

Outside

 

Scarlet

Kyaaaa!! Monsters! Monsters are in the village!

 

Villager

Noo! Help us!

 

Caius

Monsters?! How did they get into the village!

 

Oh no. Rubia!

 

I’m sorry. I have to go help them!

 

But I promise I’ll deliver this crystal!!

 

l  Save then head on out for a fight and event.

 

Caius

There they are!

 

I have to help them somehow…

 

Hey, there’s Rubia!

 

l  Go on up.

 

You alright?

 

Leave this to me and get inside the church!

 

It’s too dangerous out here!

 

Rubia

Stop joking with me, Caius.

 

The village will be gone if we don’t do something about them.

 

I’m going to fight too!

 

Caius

I’m going to protect you so listen to what I say!

 

I can’t fight with you here!

 

Rubia

How rude.

 

I can fight as good as you, Caius.

 

You should return home before you get hurt.

 

Caius
Damn you!

 

If that’s what you’re going to say then I’m not going to help you!

 

Rubia
I don’t mind!

 

After the fight.

 

Rubia

Caius…

 

Caius

Damn it, we’re surrounded! We can’t fight them all…

 

Ramrus arrives.

 

Dad!!

 

Ramrus

You two alright? Are you hurt?

 

Rubia

I’m alright but our village…

 

Ramrus

I know. This will never end at this rate.

 

Caius

Dad!

 

There’s a lot more monsters here now than earlier on. What should we do…

 

Ramrus

Caius.

 

No matter what happens next, don’t look away.

 

Got that!

 

Caius

What?

 

What do mean by that dad?

 

Ramrus

Uoooorgh!!!

 

Ramrus changes into a beast.

 

Rubia

N- No…

 

Ramus makes short work of the monsters then changes back.

 

Villager 1

You’re a Lycanth! So those monsters were your friends!

 

Villager 2

We’re going to be in big trouble if the Church finds out there’s a Lycanth here…

 

Villager 3

Get out of this village now!

 

We’re going to be in trouble too if they think we’re your friends!

 

Villager 4

You were the one that brought those monsters here.

 

Caius

Wh- What are you saying!

 

The village was saved because of my dad!!

 

Ramrus

Stop it, Caius.

 

Caius

But…

 

Rubia’s father arrives.

 

Rubia’s Papa

I will talk to everyone about you tomorrow.

 

Please return home and rest for the night.

 

Ramrus

…I understand.

 

Lets go, Caius.

 

Caius and Ramrus walks off home.

 

Now then everyone, you all should return to your homes too.

 

You must all be tired from such a terrifying event.

 

Villagers walk off.

 

Rubia

Father I…

 

You should go home too, Rubia.

 

Mother is very worried.

 

Rubia

…OK.

 

Villager 4

Heheh… So he was a Lycanth.

 

I’m going to get a nice reward if I let the Church know about this.

 

Runs off.

 

Back in Caius’ home.

 

Ramrus

Now where should I begin…

 

Caius

Everyone called you a Lycanth…

 

Ramrus

“Lycanth” is the name the citizens of Areulla calls us when they hate us.

 

Lycanth refers to the people of Leymon.

 

Even though we look like humans, we’re people have a special power that allow us to change into weremen.

 

I’m sorry I had to hide it from until now.

 

I was thinking of telling you all this when the time came.

 

I never thought it would turn out this way…

 

Caius… I should let you know the truth.

 

Listen carefully to what I’m about to say.

 

Caius

 

Ramrus

I’m not your real father.

 

Caius

What! What do you mean?!

 

Ramrus

You were entrusted to me by your mother when you were young.

 

Caius

Yo- You’re lying!

 

Then who are you!

 

Ramrus

I am a knight that served your mother, Lady Melissa.

 

Caius

So my mother was Melissa…

 

And you were a knight. Was mother really such an important person?

 

Ramrus

Your mother Lady Melissa was the last of the Leymon Royal Family.

 

Caius

The last?

 

Ramrus

Our country is destroyed.

 

100 years ago during the “Weremen Battle” our land of Leymon was transformed into a desert and now, even our capital of Leymon is in ruins.

 

Our people, the Leymon were scattered and choosing to hide from the people of Areulla, they all lived quietly.

 

But the people of Areulla called us heretics.

 

They began to seek out our homes and capturing us.

 

They were the Heretic Hunters.

 

Caius

Heretic Hunters! That’s going too far! Why did they do that?!

 

Ramrus

The people of Areulla were scared.

 

They were scared of we Leymon who possessed the power of beasts and greater technology than themselves.

 

Caius

But…

 

Ramrus

It is a sad fact to bear but it is the truth, Caius.

 

Lady Melissa couldn’t escape from the Heretic Hunters.

 

Before she distracted the hunters, she entrusted you to me.

 

Caius

What happened to mother then?

 

Ramrus

…Lady Melissa left us and ran off somewhere far, far away.

 

I’ve been looking for her but I have yet to find her…

 

I don’t want to think about it but, she must have been caught…

 

Caius

….

 

Ramrus

That is why I raised you as if you were my own son.

 

Fortunately for us, the priest here, Natwick is against the Heretic Hunters.

 

Only Rubia and her father knows that I am a Leymon.

 

Caius

Then… Does that mean I’m the same as you?

 

I can change into a beast…?

 

Ramrus

Well…

 

Each of use Reymon have a birthmark somewhere on our bodies.

 

It is known as the “Zanktu”, proof that we are Reymons.

 

Caius

Zanktu…

 

Ramrus

When you turn into a beast, the Zanktu grows bigger.

 

The Zanktu hasn’t appeared on you yet.

 

I don’t know why but you may not be able to turn into a beast…

 

Your mother Lady Melissa and your father may know why.

 

Caius

What? My father?

 

Oh I see. My real father is someone else…

 

Who is my real father?

 

Ramrus

…I’m sorry but I don’t know who he is either.

 

When I saved Lady Melissa, your father was already not there.

 

But when your mother entrusted you to me she said something.

 

That your father was alive somewhere.

 

If anything happens to me, you should go look for your own father.

 

Caius

Wh- What are you talking about…

 

Ramrus

In the eyes of the Arelluains, we are heretics. They won’t stay quiet about this.

 

Caius

Bu- But you said Rubia’s father is against the Heretic Hunters…

 

Ramrus

If the Heretic Prosecutor learns of this, even Natwick won’t be able to do anything about this.

 

Caius

No… This can’t happen. I’m sure the villagers will understand too.

 

You saved their village, didn’t you?

 

Ramrus

Caius… Our relation with humans isn’t so simple.

 

I’m sure there will be painful days ahead of you.

 

Caius

…I believe in the villagers.

 

My home village is this place after all.

 

Ramrus

Yes…

 

We can only believe in them…

 

You have grown more than I thought.

 

Caius

Of course. I’m your son after all.

 

I’m sure everyone will understand us.

 

I’m sure they will…

 

The next day the hunters arrive.

 

Villager 1

A- A Heretic Prosecutor!

 

Scarlet

What could we do for you?

 

I am Lukius from the Heretic Prosecutors Committee of the Church.

 

Rommy

And I am Rommy from the same committee.

 

Lukius

I wish to speak with the priest of this village.

 

Villager 1

I understand. This way please…

 

Lukius

You lot guard the village entrance. Don’t let anyone leave this place.

 

At the church.

 

Rubia’s Papa

What are you doing here with so many soldiers?

 

You are scaring the villagers.

 

Rommy

We received reports last night that a Lycanth is hiding here.

 

Where is it?

 

Rubia’s Papa

…He saved this village. I can’t hand him over to you.

 

It is of our own problem.

 

Rommy

Are you going to stand up for them?

 

You don’t know how serious such an offence is, do you?

 

Rubia sneaks out.

 

Rubia’s Papa

…I do.

 

I just wish you would give us some time.

 

Rommy

It’s pointless speaking to you.

 

Maybe we should burn down the entire village to find this Lycanth.

 

Rubia’s Papa

What!

 

How can you belong to the Church!

 

A villager runs in.

 

Villager 4

I’ll lead you to the Lycanth’s home.

 

In return for that, will I get a cash reward?

 

Rommy

Very well. Lead us to the Lycanth’s home.

 

Villager 4

Heheheh… Follow me please.

 

Rubia’s Papa

How can you betray your friends… They saved us.

 

Villager 4

They might have been the ones who called those monsters here.

 

They’re monsters too after all.

 

Villager leads them out.

 

Meanwhile in Caius’ home.

 

Rubia

Caius! Mr Ramrus!

 

You have to get out of here quick!!

 

Caius

What’s wrong, Rubia?

 

Why do we have to get out of here?

 

Ramrus

What’s happened? Tell us.

 

Rubia

Someone’s reported to the Heretic Prosecutors about you two.

 

There’s lots of soldiers in the village!

 

Caius

Dad…

 

Ramrus

I was afraid this would happen.

 

Caius! You get out of here now!

 

Caius

Why!

 

We’ve done nothing wrong! Why do we have to run!

 

Ramrus

They’re here to hunt for heretics.

 

I already told you yesterday about how they are repeatedly hunting down us Leymon and carrying out horrifying punishments.

 

Caius

Then I’ll fight them together with you, dad!

 

I won’t run away!

 

Ramrus

Don’t be foolish!

 

Miss Rubia is here too. Do you want to get her involved too?

 

Ramrus

Looks like we’re too late…

 

Rommy

Lycanth! It’s no use hiding.

 

Come on out quietly. If you don’t, we’ll burn your home down.

 

Rubia’s father comes along.

 

Rubia’s Papa

Wait!

 

Don’t set the house on fire! Please, stop this violence…

 

Give me some time and I’ll get them out here.

 

They’re not bad people!

 

Rommy

Out of the way!

 

We won’t tolerate this even if you are a priest.

 

Rubia’s Papa

Please!

 

Give me a chance to get them to come out.

 

Ramrus comes out with Caius and Rubia.

 

Ramrus

Caius, I’ll try doing whatever I can here! You go and run!

 

Caius

But dad… We can’t get away with the soldiers surrounding this place.

 

Ramrus

I will distract them. Take that chance and run.

 

Got that?

 

Uoooorgh!!

 

Caius

Dad!!

 

Rubia

Come on Caius, hurry!

 

You can’t stay here!

 

Rubia and Caius runs off.

 

Soldier

Wait, you little children! Wait I said!

 

Ramrus

Caius! We’ll meet outside the village!!

 

l  Go NW into the abandoned hut.

 

Abandoned Hut

 

Rubia

Caius… I wonder if my mother and father is alright.

 

No, they’ll be alright.

 

Caius

Yeah, don’t worry. They’ve done nothing wrong.

 

I hope my dad’s alright too but… Why isn’t he here yet.

 

He couldn’t have got caught…

 

Rubia, I’m going to go back to the village. You stay and hide here.

 

I’ll see how everyone’s doing then I’ll be back.

 

Rubia

I’ll go too.

 

I just don’t feel right staying here…

 

Caius

No. If the soldiers find us, we’ll be in big trouble.

 

If it’s just one of us, the other can get away.

 

Don’t worry, I’ll be back.

 

Rubia

…OK.

 

Be careful, Caius.

 

Caius

I will.

 

l  Return to Fern.

 

Village of Fern

 

Caius

Dad might be locked up somewhere.

 

I’ll have to find Rubia’s mother and father too…

 

l  Go to the church door.

 

Dad! But I’ll get noticed if I go inside.

 

I’ll just have to see how things go.

 

Inside the church.

 

Rubia’s Papa

These methods are simply too terrible even though you’re a heretic prosecutor!

 

How can you take away Ramrus’ freedom with magic!

 

Rommy

And what’s so strange about that?

 

It’s natural for us to bind a beast to its chain.

 

And I can’t believe you’re standing up for this Lycanth.

 

You’re the same as this savage Lycanth.

 

Rubia’s Papa

Ugh…

 

Ramrus

It’s useless to stand up for me, Priest.

 

If you keep this up they will make you a heretic too.

 

Rommy

Well said, Lycanth. You understand your situation well I see.

 

Priest Natwick.

 

Do you want your family to be prosecuted too?

 

Lukius

…You said too much, Rommy.

 

Priest Natwick.

 

We are only carrying out our actions in accordance with the rules of the Church.

 

Rubia’s Papa

What are you planning to do with him?

 

Please don’t execute him as a heretic.

 

Rommy

So you’re siding with the Lycanth again.

 

I did tell you earlier that it is a serious offence.

 

Lukius

We have been ordered by the Pope to transport this heretic back to the capital of Janna.

 

He will be punished the way he deserves.

 

Rommy

Ah yes, there is something else I forgot to ask you.

 

Did an imperial knight come by during the past few days?

 

Rubia’s Papa

The knight was wounded…

 

My daughter and his son found him.

 

Lukius

Where is he now?!

 

Rubia’s Papa

He’s lying down inside but unfortunately he’s…

 

Rommy

Did you receive anything from the knight?

 

Rubia’s Papa

No, nothing in particular…

 

Rommy

Did the knight say anything?

 

Rubia’s Papa

The knight was injured and was asleep…

 

Then monsters attacked us just when he died.

 

It was his son that was watching over him.

 

…What of the matter?

 

Lukius

He’s dead. He has nothing on him.

 

Rommy

It seems this Lycanth’s son took it.

 

Lukius

His son?!

 

Ramrus

He’s not my son!

 

We’re not blood related and he has never changed into a wereman!

 

Rubia’s Papa

Has something happened? Why do you ask about the knight?

 

Lukius

Find the Lycanth’s son and the priest’s daughter.

 

Then ask them about the knight. We may learn of something.

 

Lukius starts to walk out the church.

 

Caius

Oh no!

 

Runs off to hide just as Lukius walks out.

 

Rommy

You really heard nothing from the knight?

 

Rubia’s Papa

He was already unconscious when he arrived at this village.

 

…Did he have anything to do with the monsters that attacked this village?

 

Rommy

I see…

 

You’ve caught yourself in such a dangerous matter.

 

It’s unfortunate but…

 

I would never have expected a Lycanth to attack this place.

 

Rubia’s Papa

What are you saying?

 

Ramrus

No! Stop!!

 

Rommy kills Rubia’s father.

 

Caius

What! How dare she kill Rubia’s father!

 

Rubia’s mother approaches Caius.

 

Rubia’s Mama

Caius, you mustn’t go inside.

 

Caius

But Rubia’s father’s been killed!

 

Rubia’s Mama

I’ll go inside and take a look.

 

If you stand against the heretic prosecutors’ will, your life too will be jeopardy.

 

Look after Rubia for me.

 

Rubia’s mother goes inside.

 

Rommy

Oh, does the couple want to stay together?

 

Maybe I should grant you your wish.

 

Rubia’s Mama

How are you kill my husband! You don’t think about life do you!

 

Rommy kills Rubia’s mother too.

 

Ramrus

How could you…!

 

Rommy

Truly such a shame.

 

It’s such a tragedy for the priest and his wife to be attacked by a Racinth…

 

Ramrus

Why you…! Why! Why are you doing this!

 

Rommy

You don’t need to know.

 

If I didn’t have orders from the Pope, you would have died right here.

 

Now let us depart.

 

Get up!

 

Rommy and Ramrus leaves the church.

 

Caius

Damn it. She never leaves an opening.

 

l  Go up and inspect Rubia’s father.

 

Hey!

 

Rubia’s Papa

Caius… Run…

 

Your… father’s being… taken to Janna…

 

You have to go after them…

 

Caius

Hang on!

 

No!!

 

l  Now for Rubia’s mother.

 

Hey!

 

Rubia’s Mama

Caius… Please look after… Rubia…

 

She…

 

Caius

Nooo!

 

You have to come back for Rubia’s sake!

 

l  Leave the church for an event.

 

Lukius

Listen well.

 

We will be taking the Lycanth we caught here today back to the capital of Janna.

 

Once we’ve persecuted him, he will be punished appropriately.

 

Thank you for your cooperation.

 

We will be sure to capture the run away Lycanth too. We already have someone pursuing him.

 

We look forward to your future cooperation.

 

Rommy

I have sad news.

 

The Priest and his wife has been attacked by the Carinth and died.

 

Lukius

What?!

 

Rommy

It is unfortunate.

 

The Carinth’s run away son will also be a danger.

 

If you find him let the soldiers or the Reda Church know.

 

The villagers disperse.

 

Lukius

Rommy, you didn’t…

 

Rommy

We had to shut their mouths, didn’t we?

 

They were attacked by this Lycanth. It couldn’t be helped.

 

Huhuhu…

 

Walks off.

 

Caius

Damn them! I can’t let them do this!

 

How can the villagers not realise that it’s those persecutors who killed Rubia’s mother and father!

 

They worked so hard for everyone…

 

And they deserted my father too… This is too cruel… It’s all too cruel!

 

l  Explore the house to the left for a red shard then return inside the church.

 

Caius

Rubia’s mother and father…

 

I’m sorry… I’m sorry I couldn’t do anything…

 

But I will protect Rubia.

 

l  Exit the village to kill the two guards then return to the abandoned hut.

 

Abandoned Hut

 

Rubia

Caius! Is your father alright?

 

Caius

Dad he’s… been taken away by the prosecutor…

 

Rubia

No…

 

What about my mother and father?

 

Caius

…I’m sorry, Rubia.

 

I… couldn’t do anything…

 

Your mother and father… They were killed by the prosecutor…

 

Rubia

What are you saying? My father’s a priest too, you know!

 

Caius

….

 

Rubia

Why?!

 

Why did they have to kill my mother and father?!

 

Caius

…I don’t know.

 

Rubia

Mother, father…

 

I’m going back to the village!

 

Caius

You can’t, Rubia!

 

The soldiers are looking for you and me there!

 

Rubia

…Why? Why are they looking for us?

 

Caius

I heard they want to see if we heard anything from that knight.

 

It was us who watched over him after all.

 

Rubia

This all has nothing to do with that!

 

I’m going back to the village!

 

Rubia rushes out.

 

Caius

Wait, Rubia!

 

Damn, I have to after her! She might get caught by the soldiers in Fern!

 

l  Return to Fern.

 

Village of Fern

 

Caius

It’s too dangerous going in through the front. I’ll go round the back.

 

At the back.

 

Scarlet

Caius! You have to get away quick! The soldiers are everywhere!

 

Caius

I know. But Rubia came back here.

 

Scarlet

It’s alright. Rubia got away.

 

I told her that we would bury her mother and father…

 

I’m… really sorry about your father.

 

There are people in the village that are afraid of Lycanths but I believe in you two.

 

Caius

Thank you…

 

Scarlet

We’ll be able to live together again one day. Until then, live on.

 

…This is all I can give you.

 

You obtain an Orange Gummy!

 

You obtain a Tent!

 

Caius

So where is Rubia?

 

Scarlet

She went to Lumina Port south of here.

 

She said that the prosecutors would head to Janna in a ship from Naliss…

 

You have to go after her quick.

 

Caius

I will, thanks!

 

l  So turn south to follow the road. Caius will stop to rest for the night.

 

On a Road

 

Caius

I’m tired. I’ll just camp out here.

 

All have to do is use a “Tent” to camp when I want to.

 

Camping at night means I don’t have to fight any of the stronger monsters and wait for morning.

 

And if I camp during the day, I’ll wake up at night.

 

That way I might be able to find treasure that I never noticed during the day.

 

I better remember all this! Er… Who am I talking to?

 

Maybe I’ve gone crazy talking to myself.

 

If I had some friends joining me we could have some fun talking together.

 

And if I ever get confused about where I’m going, I can check with them too.

 

I don’t have much to do alone.

 

Ah… If only Rubia stayed with me…

 

How can she just run off alone like that!

 

With a flower shaped skirt like that, how can she run so fast anyway!

 

…Ah well, no use grumbling about it on my own.

 

Lets get going again after we rest up a little longer. Wait for me, dad…

 

l  Continue along the road to Port Naliss.

 

Port Naliss

 

l  Go to the SE part of the port to find Rubia.

 

Rubia

Caius…

 

Caius

Rubia, you’re alright! You haven’t set out on a ship yet?

 

Rubia

No. They won’t let me on one.

 

Caius

What do you mean they won’t?

 

Rubia

They told me that they won’t let a child go on their ships alone!

 

Rude, don’t you think?

 

Caius

That’s because you look like a kid.

 

Rubia

Shut up! You’re very short yourself!

 

Caius

What did you say!

 

Rubia

You know what I said!

 

Caius

…Lets stop this.

 

No one’s around to stop us even if we fight…

 

Rubia

…Yeah.

 

If it was the normal times, you would be making your father mad.

 

And I… Would be living happily together with my mother and father.

 

…*Cries*

 

Caius

I’m sorry.

 

Rubia

It’s alright. I know it’s painful for you too now that your father’s been taken away.

 

Caius

Well… There’s something I actually want you to know about my father.

 

Rubia

What is it?

 

Caius

I’m not really his son.

 

Rubia

He’s not your real father?!

 

…You must be joking with me.

 

Caius

I didn’t believe it either at first but it’s true it seems.

 

When I found out that father was a Leymon that night, he told me.

 

Rubia

“Leymon”?

 

Caius

It’s the correct name for Lycanths.

 

It was then he told me about my real parents.

 

My mother’s dead it seems.

 

But my real father is still alive somewhere.

 

Rubia

I see… I hope you can meet your real father.

 

Caius

Yeah, I want to see him. But you know…

 

I really want to help my father who’s been taken away even though we’re not blood related.

 

I know it’s dangerous but I’m thinking of going to Janna.

 

You’re going too, right?

 

Rubia

Of course!

 

I won’t forgive them! I will avenge my mother and father!

 

Caius

We don’t have a village to return to now. And the soldiers are after us. You don’t care about that?

 

Rubia

I’m going to go, don’t worry.

 

But we can’t get to Janna if we can’t get on a ship…

 

Caius

I guess we’ll have to go through the Black Forest.

 

Rubia

What?!

 

Th- That’s impossible! It’s the undead’s nest!

 

There’s no way we can get through that dangerous forest alone!

 

Caius

But there’s only two ways of getting to Janna.

 

Either directly by ship or, we go through the Black Forest and then pass through the Town of Reda.

 

Rubia

You’re right but…

 

How about we sneak onto a ship?

 

Caius

That’s too reckless, Rubia.

 

If they found us stowaways onboard, we might get taken to the Church.

 

The Black Forest is dangerous but even if they did find us we would be able to get away.

 

We’ll do it somehow. Lets try going to the Black Forest.

 

Rubia

You’re right.

 

We can’t get to Janna if we’re afraid of the Black Forest!

 

Rubia joins the party!

 

Caius earns a new title, “The search for father.”!

 

Rubia earns a new title, “Parent avenger.”!

 

l  Pickup the items you need at the shop then head to the northern point to enter the Black Forest.

 

Black Forest

 

l  Follow the path right for a Poison Check which makes you immune to poison then follow the other path round for an event and a fight.

 

???

Hey you two!

 

Two soldiers approach them.

 

Soldier 1

What are you two doing here!

 

Soldier 2

Aren’t you two accompanied by adults? Children shouldn’t be here alone…

 

Soldier 1

Wait, two children alone…

 

Could you two be from Fern…?

 

Soldier 2

What?!

 

Hey, I’ve got something to ask you! Come along with us!

 

Rubia

Never!

 

Caius

Lets get them, Rubia!

 

After the fight.

 

Damn it!

 

I can’t believe there’s soldiers here too. Looks like we won’t be able to get anywhere.

 

Rubia

What should we do? At this rate we won’t be able to catch up with the prosecutors.

 

Caius

I’ve got an idea.

 

It’ll be dangerous but lets hide until it’s night.

 

Even the soldiers won’t be able to move around in this forest so easily during the night.

 

We’ll use that opportunity to rush out of the forest then.

 

Rubia

While we’re here, they’re already on their way to Janna by ship.

 

If we keep going so slow then…

 

Caius

Don’t be reckless, Rubia. I want to catch up with them quickly too.

 

But what would we do if they found us here?

 

Rubia

…I understand.

 

It’s hard for you too, isn’t it…

 

The two setup camp.

 

Even the soldiers won’t be able to find us during the night in this forest.

 

Caius

Alright! Lets get through this forest before the night dawns!

 

Starts making their way away from camp.

 

If you’re scared, hide behind me.

 

Rubia

You sure about that?

 

Don’t you remember the time you stayed at my house?

 

You were scared of ghosts so you were holding onto me and crying.

 

Caius

That was when I was small!

 

Now lets go.

 

Rubia

You never admit it as always.

 

If a ghost pops out, I’m not going to save you.

 

A skeleton pops up behind them.

 

Caius

Rubia, be careful! We’ve got a monster on us!!

 

Rubia

Kyaa! Caius!!

 

l  After you defeat the skeleton.

 

Caius

Are you alright?

 

Another skeleton appears behind them.

 

These things are more troublesome than I thought. They keep appearing one after the other.

 

Another one appears.

 

Rubia

*Panting*

 

What’s with these things! There’s no end to them…

 

One more appears.

 

Caius

We don’t have the time to stand around and talk. They plan to attack us in a group.

 

Rubia

I know!

 

But with this many of them, I don’t have the time to cast magic…

 

???

Looks like you two are in trouble.

 

Two men appear.

 

???

Maybe we can give you a hand?

 

The two approaches Caius and Rubia.

 

Caius

Who are you!

 

I can take on these things alone!

 

???

Hahaha, you talk big.

 

You’ve still got a sharp tongue on you even though you’re all tired out.

 

Let us introduce ourselves.

 

I’m Tilkis. This is Forest.

 

We came from…

 

Forest

Lord Tilkis, it looks like we should carry on with the introductions afterwards!

 

The undead close in.

 

Rubia

Caius-!!

 

l  After the battle with 3 skeletons.

 

Tilkis

Looks like you two are stronger than I thought.

 

Are you two hurt?

 

Caius

I could have showed you how good I was.

 

I could have handled them alone, I didn’t need your help…

 

Rubia

Caius, don’t be rude!

 

Caius

We- Well, let me say thanks at least. You were a great help.

 

Rubia

Thank you very much for helping us.

 

Tilkis

Don’t worry about it.

 

So let us re-introduce ourselves.

 

I’m Tilkis.

 

And this is Forest.

 

We came from an island named “Senshivia” from the west.

 

Caius

I’m Caius. We came from the Village of Fern.

 

Rubia

I’m Rubia. I’m a childhood friend of Caius’ and I came from Fern too.

 

Forest

It’s too reckless of two young children trying to get through this forest alone.

 

Why do you endanger yourselves?

 

Caius

Well…

 

Tilkis

Hmmm… Looks like there’s a reason to all this.

 

Looks at both Rubia and Caius.

 

You two eloping together?

 

Caius

Wh- What are you talking about!

 

Rubia

Yeah!

 

I would never elope with Caius!

 

Caius

Yeah, same here!

 

Tilkis

Hahaha. Sorry sorry, I was just teasing.

 

Well, you do know it’s not easy to get through this forest during the night.

 

Caius

We’ve… been through a lot…

 

Telkis

We won’t force you to tell us about it. Just follow us for now.

 

If we stay here, we’ll get attacked by those monsters again.

 

Forest

First, lets get out of this forest. We’ll go into the details after that.

 

Can you two walk?

 

Caius

I’ll be fine.

 

Rubia

I can.

 

Forest

Lord Tilkis, let us depart.

 

Tilkis

Right.

 

Tilkis and Forest walks off before Rubia and Caius follows on.

 

l  Pickup the Mumei Plate in the SE corner then exit the camping area. Go east from here for an event.

 

Rubia

Hey, someone dropped something here.

 

Caius

What is it?

 

Picks the item up.

 

Hmmm… A key?

 

Tilkis

Yes, it does look like a key. But what’s it for?

 

Forest

It looks very old...

 

Rubia

Maybe it belongs to the soldiers?

 

Caius

I don’t know but it looks of some importance so lets take it with us!

 

Rubia

Hey, I found that!

 

Caius

The quicker one always wins~!

 

Caius runs off.

 

Rubia

Hey- wait!

 

Rubia runs off after Caius

 

Tilkis

…Hey, we’re going to leave you two behind~

 

Obtained Key of Eleusis!

 

Now you can play through wireless link!

 

l  Follow the path and make your way out of the forest.

 

Outside the Forest

 

Tilkis

Phew… Looks like we got out of there safely.

 

Now we can rest assured.

 

Caius

Hey…

 

You said you two came from an island in the west.

 

Where are you planning to go?

 

Forest

We’re heading to the capital of Janna.

 

We entered this region without permission so there’s going to be a bit of trouble if we get found.

 

Rubia

You came without permission…? Why?

 

Tilkis

In our western homeland of the Senshivia Island, monsters are starting to appear and attack our people.

 

We came to investigate the source of it all.

 

We think the reason why the monsters are appearing is in Janna.

 

Caius

In Janna?

 

Tilkis

Yeah.

 

Some people came from the Church of Janna and they done some suspicious things in Senshivia.

 

Rubia

People from the Church?!

 

Caius

What sort of suspicious things do you mean?

 

Telkis

Yes, some large scale Priseputh. In other words, they were performing a ceremony to cast magic.

 

After that, snow was falling in the wrong season and dark black monsters appeared.

 

Caius

Dark black monsters… The same monsters that attacked Fern…

 

Tilkis

So they appeared around here too…

 

I don’t think we’ll get an answer even if we ask Janna about these incidents.

 

They’ll just end up being suspicious of us.

 

Rubia

You’re right…

 

Forest

They’re not going to listen to a prince who recklessly came out here alone either.

 

I followed him out here to accompany him.

 

Caius

Pr- Prince?! So we should have called you Prince Tilkis.

 

Rubia

A prince… this is wonderful!

 

Tilkis

Haha.

 

I’m the 4th prince of a small country. It’s nothing great.

 

Originally I was planning to travel Areulla alone.

 

But this guy here wouldn’t listen to me no matter what I said.

 

Forest

Of course.

 

If anything happened to you Prince Tilkis, I wouldn’t be able to face His Highness.

 

By the way, we saw some soldiers before we entered the forest.

 

We thought they were after us but, they were really after you, weren’t they?

 

Tilkis

…I see. So what are you two going to do from here?

 

Caius

My father’s been arrested by the Church and he’s going to be trialled in Janna.

 

I have to get him out before that happens.

 

Forest

Get him out of the Church huh… That’s not going to be easy.

 

It might mean your life.

 

Caius

…Even if that’s so, I can’t just watch my father die.

 

Forest

You’re not going to change your mind, are you?

 

It’s going to much more dangerous than you ever imagined, no doubt about it.

 

Caius

I know…

 

Tilkis

We’re heading to Janna.

 

You two want to join us?

 

The more the merrier.

 

Rubia

Caius, what should we do?

 

I think it’s going to be tough if we travel alone to Janna.

 

Caius

Yeah, I know.

 

Please.

 

Let us join you so that we can travel to Janna together.

 

Tilkis

Alright, it’s settled then!

 

We’re all going to have to avoid any attention. Looking forward to travelling with you.

 

Caius

Yeah.

 

Wait for me, father. Soon… Soon I’ll get you out.

 

Forest

Don’t be so hasty.

 

First we’re heading to the Town of Reda nearby.

 

We’ll rest there, gear up and then head to Janna.

 

Rubia

Understood.

 

Tilkis earns the title “The man from the west.”!

 

l  Go NW to reach the Town of Reda

 

Town of Reda

 

Caius

Amazing!

 

So many fine looking buildings! Large towns are really different, aren’t they…

 

Rubia

I see.

 

Caius, you’ve never been out of the village until now, right?

 

Tilkis

The capital city of Janna’s much bigger than this town.

 

If you’re amazed by something like this then you’ll be doing flip-flops once you get there.

 

Everyone laughs.

 

Caius

Ha, no way will I be doing flip-flops.

 

Forest

Prince Tilkis, what shall we do now?

 

There’s a large church in Reda. We’ll be in danger if the soldiers find us…

 

Tilkis

You’re right…

 

They’re after two foreign men and two young children from Fern.

 

So maybe we can split ourselves into two families.

 

Caius

Two families?

 

Tilkis

Yes.

 

Father and son, Forest and Caius.

 

Father and daughter…

 

No, Rubia and I will be older brother and sister.

 

Rubia

Oh, that sounds great.

 

*Onii-sama~!

 

*Older brother.

 

Forest

And I’m the father…

 

Telkis

Well, lets go around like this then. Lets find an inn first.

 

We’ll then go about equipping ourselves for the next journey then rendezvous at the town entrance.

 

Caius earns a new title, “Fake son”!

 

Rubia earns a new title, “The little sister”!

 

Tilkis earns a new title, “Onii-sama”!

 

Forest earns a new title, “The father?”

 

l  Go find the inn and speak to the keeper for an event.

 

Inn Keeper

Hmm? You must be Mr Forest and his son I presume.

 

Forest

What? Uh, yeah…

 

Inn Keeper

I see. I heard all about you from your friend Mr. Tilkis.

 

Please have a nice stay at my inn.

 

Don’t worry, Mr. Tilkis has paid for you.

 

Forest

Th- Thanks.

 

Will you be resting now for the night?

 

l  Choose the second option to rest.

 

Outside the Inn

 

Forest

Can’t sleep?

 

Caius

…Yeah.

 

And I have to apologise to you for something.

 

Even though it’s part of our plan, I can’t call you father.

 

Forest

Because your father was taken away from you I presume…

 

Sorry, we didn’t consider that. Tilkis didn’t have anything bad in mind.

 

Forgive him.

 

Caius

No… you don’t have to apologise.

 

Forest

Well, we’ve got a long way til Janna. Lets have a good long sleep for the night.

 

Caius

Yeah… But there’s one thing I want to ask.

 

Just what are the Lycanth and Leymons?

 

Forest

You want to know about your father huh. So they really were hunting for heretics.

 

Caius

Yeah. He got taken away by the heretic prosecutors…

 

We left the village to go after them.

 

It’s strange.

 

I feel as if it’s alright to tell you all this.

 

Forest

I see. So you’re worried about the safety of your father?

 

Caius

And… myself.

 

Forest

Yourself?

 

Caius

My father who got taken away by the prosecutors…

 

He said we’re not blood related and I can’t turn into a wereman.

 

He also said that my mother belongs to the last of the Leymon Royal Family.

 

Forest

Do you know about something known as the Zanktu?

 

Caius

I heard from my father that is was proof that we were Leymons.

 

Forest

That’s right. Only the Leymons have that birthmark.

 

So you really are…

 

Caius

I don’t have one. I don’t have a Zanktu.

 

Forest

So you don’t have a Zanktu huh…

 

Then you can’t be a Leymon.

 

I’ve never heard of a Leymon without a Zanktu on them.

 

Caius

Then…

 

Who could my real parents be.

 

Forest

I see…

 

You’re not going after your father just to save him. You’re doing this to ascertain who your parents are.

 

That’s quite a complex matter… But I can tell you this.

 

Other people are other people, you are you.

 

No matter how much you envy others, there are some things you can’t obtain.

 

Is it the same when others look at you.

 

You too have something wonderful that others don’t possess.

 

What you have to do now maybe to find your “true self”.

 

Caius

It’s all too hard to understand.

 

Forest

Sorry.

 

You just have to rescue your father quickly so that you can put your feelings at ease.

 

Don’t hesitate, Caius.

 

Caius

Thank you, Mr. Forest.

 

Forest walks back inside.

 

The next day…

 

l  Return up the stairs to collect a Life Bottle in the first room. Next gather what you need from the shops and exit town. Choose the first option once you meet Rubia and Tilkis to let them know you’re ready.

 

Rubia

I’m ready too.

 

Right, Onii-sama!

 

Caius

Wh- Why are you doing that!

 

Tilkis

You don’t have to be jealous, Caius. We’re just brother and sister after all.

 

Caius

I’m- I’m not jealous!

 

Rubia

Oh, Caius… Huhu.

 

Tilkis

Right! Lets depart.

 

Janna’s to the north of Reda.

 

Lets get those spirits up and get going.

 

l  They weren’t joking when they said it was a far place. Make your way north to Janna. Midway your party will take a break.

 

Tilkis

Hey, Caius.

 

Caius

What is it, Tilkis?

 

Tilkis

You two really are lovers aren’t you?

 

It’s a dangerous journey after all.

 

If you weren’t then Rubia wouldn’t have come along too, would she?

 

Caius

What are you on about! We’re not even going out together!

 

Tilkis

Really? But you two aren’t brother and sister right?

 

I can only think of you two as lovers since you aren’t.

 

Rubia

We’re not, Onii-sama!

 

I’m only together with Caius because there aren’t many children in the village around his age!

 

There’s no way I would be caught dating him!

 

Caius

What do you mean “no way”!

 

There’s no way I could be caught being your boyfriend either!

 

Rubia

That’s it! You’ve gone too far!

 

If I didn’t teach you anything then you wouldn’t have been able to read!

 

Caius

What!

 

Forest

Come on now, you two.

 

But you know… I know why Caius is on this journey but, what are you coming along for, Rubia?

 

Caius

Well… I can’t tell you that myself.

 

Rubia turns her back slowly.

 

Rubia

My father was a priest in our village. But he was killed by the prosecutors…

 

They killed my mother too.

 

That’s why I’m travelling to Janna to take revenge.

 

Tilkis

I see…

 

Forest

…Sorry.

 

Rubia

No, it’s alright.

 

…I’m going to go take a little break.

 

Rubia walks off.

 

Tilkis

I really hurt Rubia’s there didn’t I…

 

Caius

Rubia knows you didn’t mean any harm.

 

She just can’t think things through, that’s all…

 

Rubia’s parents asked me to take care of her.

 

That’s why no matter what happens, I’m going to protect her.

 

l  Continue your journey north.

 

Janna

 

Caius

So this is the capital of Janna… It’s much bigger than Fern.

 

Rubia

It’s so big you can’t compare it to Fern, Caius.

 

The first time father brought me here, I got lost and he made such a fuss…

 

Caius

Rubia…

 

Tilkis

Do you two know anything about the building standing deep within this town?

 

Caius

No but it looks like some sort of fortress. Does the King live there?

 

Tilkis

No, it’s where the Knights and Arch Duke lives.

 

To the far left of the Arch Duke’s fortress… That’s the Church built on top of the lake.

 

Once you cross the central bridge, you can get to Areulla the 8th’s castle. It’s known as the “Ownerless Castle”.

 

Caius

“Ownerless”?

 

Tilkis

You don’t know?

 

Forest

14 years ago an incident took place. Something that happened here in Janna.

 

8 Leymons came to Janna.

 

Caius

Really? So did they get captured?

 

Forest

Yes.

 

They were thrown into prison by the Church.

 

But they escaped and hid in the castle.

 

Well actually, going to the castle was part of their plan.

 

Rubia

What were they after…

 

Forest

They wanted to speak to the King.

 

They wanted to tell him that, “The Leymon has no quarrels with humans and wish to live quietly in peace.”

 

Caius

I see… They were really brave.

 

Forest

But those words never reached the King.

 

The Imperial Guards executed on the spot to protect the King.

 

Since then, the King has been escorted away from the castle.

 

He’s now moved to Mount Earl in the north.

 

Unfortunately, that incident was what triggered the hunt for Leymon.

 

Caius

I can’t believe such a thing happened…

 

How can they kill Leymon that they’re living together with…

 

It’s too cruel!

 

Rubia

I really think so too.

 

Hey, I think people are going to get suspicious if we stand out here and talk.

 

Tilkis

You’re right. Lets rest up at an inn for now.

 

Caius

We’ll then have a meeting and come up with a plan to rescue my dad.

 

l  Find an inn and speak to the keeper for an event.

 

Caius

I wonder where dad could be held.

 

Forest

At the Church.

 

They capture them then gather them all there.

 

But it’s hard to get in there.

 

Even citizens are only allowed to enter after they go through the ceremony at the Great Cathedral.

 

The Leymons are kept in cells deep underground there.

 

We’ll have to find a way to sneak in.

 

Rubia

Maybe we should ask around and gather some information first?

 

Forest

I have an idea who to ask. We’ll do it later.

 

Caius

I want to go the Arch Duke’s fortress too…

 

The Knight that came to our village asked me to do something for him…

 

Tilkis

We ourselves have our own matter to deal with. We need to investigate about the Spots.

 

I’m sorry but, we’ll have to go our separate ways for now.

 

Caius

I understand. I’ll go with Rubia.

 

Rubia, you don’t mind coming with me to the Church and Arch Duke’s fortress, right?

 

Rubia

No, I don’t mind.

 

We might be able to meet those masked killers…

 

Tilkis

It’s settled then.

 

Don’t be too reckless, Caius, Rubia. Run if you get into danger.

 

We’ll meet back at this inn afterwards.

 

Forest

Caius, even if you do locate your father, don’t rush things.

 

I’m sure your father wants you to be safe more than anything else.

 

Caius

I understand, Mr. Forest.

 

Tilkis

You shouldn’t be too reckless too, Rubia.

 

Nothing good happens if you let your anger control you.

 

Rubia

…I understand.

 

Tilkis

Well, lets all be careful and move out.

 

Caius

Yeah!

 

Outside the inn.

 

Rubia

Hey, Caius…

 

What did the Knight from our village ask you to do?

 

Caius

I was going to tell you sooner or later…

 

He gave me something to hand to the Arch Duke.

 

This thing.

 

Rubia

What is this stone?

 

Caius

He called it a Pensient.

 

I don’t know what it is.

 

But it seems those prosecutors are looking for this too.

 

Rubia

So this was what the Knight was carrying…

 

I wonder what it is.

 

He- Hey, Caius. Something’s happening to it!

 

Caius

Oh no!

 

This happened when the Knight gave it to me too!

 

Rubia

Hurry up and hide it!

 

Caius puts the Pensient away.

 

Good, the light’s hidden.

 

Looks like the Pensient and your pendant were resonating.

 

Caius

Really.

 

Maybe my pendant is a Pensient too…

 

l  Enter the next area.

 

Caius

Excuse me… Could we see the Arch Duke?

 

Guard 1

What business do you have with the Arch Duke?

 

Caius

There’s something we need to deliver to him…

 

Another guard comes along.

 

Guard 2

What is it?

 

Guard 1

Who’s the item from?

 

Rubia

We’re from the village of Fern.

 

Caius

A Knight that came to our village asked us to deliver something to the Arch Duke.

 

Guard 2

The Arch Duke is resting due to an illness. Don’t you know about that?

 

Rubia

We just arrived in Janna so…

 

Guard 1

About a week ago, he suddenly passed out.

 

There was a great commotion about it.

 

Guard 2

…It must be a curse.

 

The Church must have used the Priseputh to cast a curse on him…

 

A long hair man appears.

 

???

Quieten up, you two!

 

Guard 1

Ca- Captain!

 

Guard 2

Ex- Excuse us!

 

???

You two shouldn’t be saying such careless things. What would you do if you’re wrong?

 

Turning round to Caius and Rubia.

 

I heard what you said there.

 

I’m Albert Mueller. Captain of the Black Knights who protect Janna.

 

You two came from the village of Fern, yes?

 

Caius

Yes, sir.

 

Albert

That must have been a long journey.

 

But did you know there are no knights around the area of Fern?

 

The only knights are we, the Black Knights who protect this capital and the Imperial Guards who guard the King.

 

Including the knights that guard the Northern and Eastern Gates, that’s just 3 groups of us.

 

There are no groups around Fern in the south so you shouldn’t have met a knight.

 

Perhaps it was just some prank.

 

So what did that knight hand you?

 

Rubia

Well…

 

We’re sure that it was a knight. He was wearing a beautiful golden armour…

 

Caius

We’re sorry!

 

Looks like we were mistaken.

 

Come on, lets go, Rubia!

 

Caius runs off.

 

Rubia

Wh- What?! Hey, what’s wrong?

 

Wait for me!

 

Rubia runs after him.

 

Albert

A knight in golden armour…? An Imperial Guard?

 

It doesn’t sound like they’re lying.

 

But what would an Imperial Guard be doing in Fern…?

 

Rubia

What’s wrong? You’re not going to deliver the Pesient?

 

Caius

Something’s odd.

 

How could we have been given this if there was no knight in the vicinity of Fern?

 

And why would anyone take the trouble of going all the way to our village…?

 

And those prosecutors are looking for this.

 

There must be something special behind this stone.

 

Rubia

Why don’t we speak to Onii-sama about it?

 

Caius

Yes, lets do that. We’ll try speaking to him once we’ve rendezvoused.

 

l  Now go to the church to the NW of Janna.

 

Rubia

Caius, what should we do? Shall we go in?

 

Caius

Lets try getting through directly in through the front without trying anything!

 

Walks in through the gates.

 

Rubia

What! Hey- Hey wait, Caius!

 

I can’t believe him…

 

Follows after him.

 

Caius

Excuse us…

 

Soldier 1

What?

 

Caius

Can we go inside the Church?

 

Soldier 1

This cathedral is always open to citizens. Feel free to go in.

 

Caius

I see. Thanks you.

 

Both Caius and Rubia enter the church.

 

l  Follow the path inside then go further into the room for an event.

 

Caius

Wow… This place is so big…

 

Rubia

I don’t remember it being this big when I was small.

 

Caius

The only way to get deeper into this cathedral is through the door to the right.

 

Walks off.

 

Soldier

What are you two doing? You can’t go beyond here.

 

Caius

We’ve never seen a Lycanth.

 

We heard one was caught and brought here so we came to see.

 

Rubia

You are keeping it here, aren’t you?

 

Soldier

There’s lots of Lycanths in the underground cells waiting for prosecution.

 

But it’s dangerous. I can’t let you in.

 

Now go home!

 

Rubia and Caius walks away.

 

Rubia

I knew we can’t get through the front.

 

Caius

Hmmm. There might a back entrance somewhere.

 

I just want to see if dad’s safe at least…

 

Rubia

He wouldn’t tell us much about the Lycanths or the cells did he?

 

Caius

I guess we’ll just have to be more persistent with everyone.

 

l  Go back outside and go up the two guards again.

 

Caius

I heard that a Lycanth was brought here a few days ago.

 

Soldier 1

Now that you mention it, they did catch a Lycanth in Fern from the south.

 

Soldier 2

I’m sure I heard that he was executed already.

 

Rubia

No! I thought he was going to stand trial!

 

Soldier 1

It was a fairly violent Lycanth I heard.

 

That’s why didn’t give a trial.

 

Caius

No- No…

 

l  Return across the bridge.

 

Caius

Dad… I’m sorry.

 

I didn’t make it. I couldn’t save you.

 

Rubia

Cheer up, Caius.

 

Caius

I might have been able to save him if I had reached Janna sooner…

 

Rubia

Caius, don’t blame yourself…

 

A moment of silence.

 

Hey, Caius.

 

Why don’t we go and enjoy a little breeze at the port before we rendezvous with the others?

 

Caius

Yeah…

 

l  So head west to the port.

 

Black Knight

Hey, you two! What are you doing here?

 

Rubia

Pardon?

 

Well… We got lost so…

 

It’s the first time we came to such a big town so we don’t know our way back to the inn.

 

Black Knight 2

You’re the ones that came from Fern?

 

I heard you brought something for his Arch Duke…

 

Black Knight 1

Captain Albert Mueller is looking for you two.

 

Come with us back to the Knights’ Lodging.

 

Caius

What? What does the Black Knights want with us?

 

Black Knight 2

I heard he wants to ask you about what happened in Fern.

 

And about the young man and lady the Church is looking for.

 

Caius

Damn it! I can’t believe the knights are after us too!

 

Rubia, lets run!

 

Rubia

OK!

 

Rubia and Caius runs off to hide. The Black Knights miss them.

 

What’s going on?

 

All we have to do is deliver the stone to the Arch Duke.

 

We didn’t have to run…

 

Caius

There’s something not right.

 

One moment they were turning us away and now suddenly they want to take us with them.

 

And they also know that the Church is after us too.

 

If we went with them they might have handed us over to the Church.

 

The Black Knights find them and they run off again. A girl appears.

 

Girl

Wait! Quickly, run in here!

 

Rubia

What? Who are you?

 

Girl

Never mind who I am, just come here or you’ll get caught by those knights.

 

Caius and rubia runs into the alley. The knights run off in another direction.

 

Looks like you managed to escape them. Now we can relax.

 

Rubia

Thank you.

 

Why did you help us?

 

Girl

You were being chased by the Black Knight who protects Janna.

 

But there also a lot of people who are troubled because of them.

 

Caius

You’re a priestess from the Church, right? You sure it’s alright for you to help us like that?

 

Girl

Don’t refer to me as “you”.

 

My name is Arria. Arria Ekberg.

 

If you don’t mind, could you tell me your names?

 

Rubia

Of course.

 

I’m Rubia and this is Caius.

 

Arria

Nice to meet you Caius and Rubia. So why were you being chased?

 

Rubia

Well… We were… It’s kind of complicated…

 

Arria

Don’t worry if you don’t want to tell me. But be careful while you’re in this town.

 

Caius

Sorry but there’s one thing I want to ask you, Arria…

 

Arria

What is it? I’ll answer if I can.

 

Caius

Do you know about what happens in the Church well?

 

Is it true that the Lycanth from Fern was executed?

 

Arria

You must mean the Lycanth we caught not too long ago.

 

…Unfortunately, that’s what I heard too. I haven’t actually witnessed it with my own eyes, however.

 

Caius

So dad really is dead…

 

Arria

Dad?

 

That Lycanth was your father?

 

Caius

He wasn’t my real father but he brought me up.

 

Arria

I see… That is sad news.

 

The hunt of Lycanths has become very intense.

 

You two should leave Janna quickly.

 

Rubia

Excuse me but…

 

Do you know who the masked prosecutors who brought that Lycanth are?

 

Arria

If it’s the two who came back from Fern then they must be Lukius and Rommy.

 

What about them?

 

Rubia

Oh… It’s nothing.

 

Caius

Why is the Church hunting Lycanths?

 

Arria

 

All I can say is that humans are afraid of the Ly- I mean, Leymons.

 

Caius

That’s a lie!

 

People are just making the Leymon suffer!

 

Arria

Yes, that’s true…

 

But years ago, the hunting activity was increased due to the Pope’s orders.

 

Caius

Wh- Why would the Pope give an order like that?

 

Arria

I don’t know the reason why but, the Pope is a very able man.

 

I’m sure some sort of idea crossed his mind.

 

Rubia

That can’t be…

 

Both my parents and Caius’ father died because of that idea…

 

Arria

…Come now, the Black Knights are nowhere in sight now. Get back to the inn.

 

Caius

Hey… Thanks for helping us earlier.

 

Arria

You’re welcome. Take care on your way back.

 

Caius

We will.

 

Arria walks off.

 

l  So returning to the inn.

 

Tilkis

So did you confirm what we were talking about earlier?

 

Spy

Yes, it’s still there.

 

Forest

Left as it was long ago huh…

 

Spy

Yes.

 

There are a few changes but, both the port and the church is still the way they were.

 

Tilkis

Thanks. Here’s your payment.

 

The spy leaves.

 

Tilkis

Now we’re reaching our goal.

 

Forest

Looks like it’ll work out somehow.

 

But the fact that it’s still dangerous hasn’t changed.

 

Tilkis

But we have to do it. We have to infiltrate the Church and expose the truth.

 

There’s no mistake that the monsters that appeared in Senshivia were born from the Priseputh magic that the Church uses.

 

Forest

Yes.

 

But such a great amount of Priseputh hasn’t been cast since the Weremen Battle.

 

Tilkis

So this proves that the Priseputh they cast in Senshivia was to invade my country.

 

Forest

Then we can come to the conclusion that the large scale Priseputh magic they cast…

 

Was what caused the temperature to drop drastically, making snow fall even in summer time.

 

Casting the Priseputh magic meant taking away all the heat energy away from the area.

 

Now that we think back to that incident, maybe they didn’t cast Priseputh to create monsters.

 

We could say that they cast it to cause a heavy impact on Senshivia’s farming industry.

 

Telkis

It’s possible.

 

If we also take into account about how the Arch Duke, who was against the invasion of other countries, is now ill in bed…

 

All this isn’t as simple as it sounds.

 

In case, lets find out ourselves.

 

Forest

We should make haste.

 

Three soldiers from the Church enter the inn.

 

Soldier 1

Hey, you two.

 

What are you up to muttering about the Church?

 

Tilkis

I really have no idea what you’re talking about.

 

Are you referring to us?

 

Forest

We’re just countrymen who have never seen such a large town before.

 

We thought we could visit the cathedral because we’ve never been there.

 

Solider 2

We know what you two were talking about.

 

Now come along quietly.

 

Tilkis

Why that double-crossing spy!

 

How dare he tell the Church about us being here too.

 

Forest

We shouldn’t have let our guard down with the people in this town.

 

Tilkis

You got that right.

 

Forest

Prince Tilkis, what shall we do?

 

Soldier 2

We’ll just have to use force if you choose to resist. Now come along quietly and you won’t get hurt.

 

Tilkis

Too bad we’re in a hurry so we have no intention of being caught.

 

Forest! Getting away from here is the best option for now!

 

Tilkis begins to run but Forest doesn’t move.

 

Forest

Leave them to me!

 

Tilkis

What are you saying. I can’t leave you behind!

 

Forest

If both of us get caught here then everything would have been for nothing!

 

Now go, please!

 

Soldier 1

He- Hey, look at his back! That’s a Zanktu!

 

This man’s a Lycanth!

 

Soldier 2

Wh- What?!

 

Soldier 3

Lets- Lets all get him!

 

Tilkis

Thanks, Forest. Be safe.

 

Just as Tilkis runs out of the inn, he meets Rubia and Caius.

 

Caius

Hey, Tilkis!

 

Tilkis

I’ll explain later! Run!!

 

The three run off together out of Janna.

 

Rubia

*Panting*… What happened?

 

Caius

Where’s Mr. Forest?

 

Tilkis

Forest got caught by the Church’s soldiers while making a chance for me to get away.

 

Caius

What! That’s not good.

 

Tilkis

Yeah.

 

They found out that we were investigating about the Church.

 

With the way things are, he’ll get taken to the Church too and get executed.

 

Rubia

Executed?! He’s going to get executed just because he was investigating the Church?

 

Tilkis

Sorry I’ve kept this quiet from you two…

 

But Forest is actually a Leymon.

 

They found that out when they captured him there.

 

Caius

Mr Forest is a Leymon?! I knew it…

 

Rubia

I can’t believe it…

 

Tilkis

You remember what we told you about what happened in Janna?

 

He’s one of the 8 Leymon that was supposed to have been executed.

 

He a survivor.

 

Cais

What?!

 

Rubia

So Mr Forest was amongst the eight Leymons that got involved?

 

Tilkis

Yeah.

 

He escaped into Senshivia while he was being chased by the Church’s soldiers and the knights.

 

The Church executed the rest to keep their reputation.

 

Caius

How can he return to Janna after what’s happened?

 

Tilkis

He managed to escape Janna because he bought a map that shows the layout of Janna.

 

Rubia

So Mr Forest was the only one that escaped…

 

Tilkis

He… wanted to settle what happened.

 

Settle the incident that happened 14 years ago…

 

When he failed himself.

 

Rubia

…But now we won’t know how to rescue him if he gets taken to the Church.

 

Tilkis

We managed to sort that out. It was Forest’s idea.

 

Caius

What idea?

 

Tilkis

Forest managed to escape from the underground cells during the Janna incident.

 

That escape route remains even now although it’s not left completely as it was before.

 

That’s where we’ll get to him from.

 

Caius

 

I won’t let Mr Forest get executed too! I will save him!!

 

Tilkis

What do you mean “too”? Did you find out something about your father?

 

Caius lowers his head in silence.

 

Rubia

A priest from the Church said that he was executed the moment they brought him in…

 

Tilkis

So they didn’t even give a fair trial…How can they do such a thing.

 

Caius

…This is all wrong.

 

I won’t forgive them for killing my dad without a reason!

 

Tilkis

Alright, we’ll settle this tonight!

 

We’ll wait for time to pass out there then sneak in once it’s night when it’s harder for people to see us.

 

l  If it’s day time, just use a tent (テント) to rest until the night then re-enter Janna.

 

Tilkis

Right, let me explain the plan.

 

First, we head to the port.

 

There should be a entrance into the sewers there.

 

We’ll pass through there to get into the Church.

 

Understood?

 

l  Second option to move on. Next head to the port to the east. You can still drop by the shops for items if you need any.

 

Arria

Oh, it’s you two. What are you two doing here?

 

Tilkis

And that is? What is a priestess doing here…?

 

Arria

 

Caius

She’s Arria.

 

She helped us when we were being chased by the Black Knights.

 

I know she’s from the Church but we can trust her.

 

Tilkis

…I see. If that’s what you say then I’ll trust her.

 

Hello Miss Arria, I’m Tilkis. I came from Senshivia.

 

Do excuse my rudeness of being suspicious of such a beautiful lady. Nice to meet you.

 

Arria

Oh! Thank you for your compliment…

 

I do understand that you all are in very complex situations.

 

If there’s anything I can do to help, please say so.

 

Caius

…A friend of ours got captured.

 

Arria

A friend…?

 

Now that you mention it, a Leymon was taken to our Church earlier.

 

Tilkis

There’s no mistake about it. That must be Forest!

 

Arria

I heard that the father who brought up Caius was a Leymon…

 

I can’t believe they went as far as capturing him back here…

 

At this rate, Mr. Forest will be executed too not far from here.

 

Rubia

No… He’s not going to get a trial?

 

Arria

Trials are just a cover up. Once Leymons are found, they can not escape execution…

 

Caius

That’s not right. Not right at all.

 

Arria

Yes… It truly is wrong.

 

Well, follow me.

 

Tilkis

To where?

 

Arria

The sewers beneath the port leads to the underground area of the Church.

 

Tilkis

The way Forest escaped from…

 

If you know about that route then surely there’s soldiers patrolling the area too.

 

Arria

No. Most of the soldiers don’t know about it.

 

Even if they did, they wouldn’t enter that place.

 

Tilkis

…I understand. I guess we’ll have to trust you for now.

 

In any case, we have to go through the same route anyway.

 

Caius

You’re going to help us? Why?

 

You’re a priestess working for the Church right? It’s going to be dangerous for you if you help us…

 

Arria

Yes, that’s true.

 

But I don’t want to see innocent Leymon being slayed.

 

And if that Leymon is your friend then he is my friend too.

 

Now, come with me.

 

Caius

…Thanks.

 

Sewers

 

Arria

This is the sewers built long ago. It links to the underground section of the Church.

 

Caius

So if we follow the path here, we can get into the Church.

 

Arria

…Knowing this place doesn’t mean you can get through safely.

 

But I know that even if I tell you that it’s really dangerous, you all would still go on.

 

Caius

Lets go. No matter how dangerous it is, we still have to rescue our friend.

 

l  Continue forward for an event a short fight.

 

Caius

What’s wrong?

 

Tilkis

What… What’s that there?!

 

Be careful! It’s coming!

 

After the fight with the Spots.

 

The monsters that appeared in Senshivia…

 

So that’s what you meant by knowing this place doesn’t mean we can get through safely…

 

Arria

They’re Spots that just suddenly appeared in Janna one day.

 

I can’t believe they appeared in your country too…

 

They lurk around here and go out attacking people now and then.

 

There’s a great number of them so even the soldiers and the knights can’t do anything about them.

 

Tilkis

How did you know about such a dangerous place…?

 

Arria

The Spots can’t leave the underground part of the church without passing through the main rooms.

 

But through the port, they can get out easily.

 

That’s why I stay at the port exit and keep them at bay.

 

I don’t want any more people dying when they know nothing about what’s happening.

 

It’s all I can do.

 

Tilkis

You are a strong one…

 

Arria

How rude. Did you just imagine me as an ogre or something?

 

Arria walks off.

 

Tilkis

I’m sure you know yourself.

 

Arria gains the new title, “Heroine of the Shadows”.

 

l  Make you way in for an event and a fight with a big Spot.

 

Arria

We’re almost at the exit. Keep it up.

 

Rubia

…What’s THAT?

 

Arria

I’ve never seen such a big Spot…

 

Tilkis

We can’t get through to the Church as long as that thing’s around.

 

Caius

Then we’ll have to defeat it!

 

Arria

I understand. Lets go!

 

l  Enter the hole to exit the sewers.

 

Cathedral

 

Rubia

Thank goodness we’re finally here. Ha… My clothes are all dirty.

 

Arria

You did well. You’re very brave for a little girl.

 

Rubia

I’m not… really brave. I just have a reason to fight.

 

Arria

A reason to fight?

 

Caius

Hmmm… Can we leave the talking til later?

 

We have to rescue Mr. Forest first.

 

Arria

Yes, you’re right.

 

Your friend should be held in the underground cells.

 

All the Leymons captured throughout the land is imprisoned there.

 

Tilkis

Alright, please lead us there.

 

Lets rescue him without the soldiers noticing.

 

l  Make your way through the corridors to find some locked rooms with some fairly easy puzzles to solve. An event will occur once you’ve found the right one in the SE. Caius and the others will find a large number of Leymon imprisoned but don’t see Forest anywhere. Tilkis calls out Forest’s name before they hear him replying from another room. Once you find him chained up…

 

Caius

We made it. Are you hurt, Mr Forest?

 

Forest

I’m alright.

 

But the others are being tortured.

 

Tilkis

I’ll unlock those chains. Just hang in there.

 

After solving the puzzle.

 

Alright, they’re unlocked!!

 

Damn, there’s two locks.

 

Forest

I can sort the rest out myself.

 

Uoooorgh!!

 

Forest transforms to break the locks.

 

Thank you everyone. And that young lady is?

 

Arria

My name is Arria. Nice to meet you, Mr. Forest.

 

Tilkis

She’s a member of the Church but, she lead us here.

 

You can trust her.

 

Forest

So there are people like you in the Church.

 

I look forward to your acquaintance.

 

Arria

I do too.

 

Forest

Ah, Caius. I met someone familiar in here.

 

Wait here.

 

Forest walks off.

 

Caius

What’s he up to?

 

Forest comes back.

 

D- Dad!

 

You’re alive!

 

Ramrus

Oh… Caius… Is that really you?

 

Caius

Yes, it’s me, dad.

 

I thought you were dead. I’m so glad you’re alive.

 

Ramrus

I am somehow…

 

Ramrus walks a few steps before falling down on one knee.

 

Caius

By the way, didn’t the prosecutors curse you with magic?

 

Ramrus

Yes.

 

But since I was going to be imprisoned here, they freed me from it.

 

They undid the Priseputh magic.

 

Caius

I see. I’m glad…

 

Tilkis

Caius, I know it’s a reunion but, please allow me to understand our situation here.

 

Now, Forest please explain. What is going on here?

 

Why are all the Leymon still alive when they’re all supposed to have been executed?

 

Forest

The Church didn’t execute the Leymons.

 

They actually imprisoned them here to torture but they made it look like they were executed.

 

Arria

Then what were those bodies and bones that they showed us?

 

Forest

The bones the Church showed you were from other beasts.

 

Caius

Why are they doing this? Why are imprisoning Leymons here and torturing them?!

 

Forest

They’re trying to find out about the Pensient from us.

 

Rubia

The Pensient? You mean…

 

Forest

The Pensient is a named given to a red stone by we Leymons.

 

However, I don’t really know the details…

 

Caius

I received a stone from a knight in Fern and he wanted me to deliver it to the Arch Duke.

 

I heard it’s all the Pensient and the Church is after it too…

 

It’s this stone.

 

Caius shows it to Tilkis.

 

Tilkis

So this is the Pensient…

 

Forest

It’s resonating?! Then that means that pendant’s also a…

 

Ramrus

It’s highly likely that it’s also a Pensient.

 

It was an item that Caius’ mother, Queen Melissa of the Royal Family who passed it onto me.

 

Rubia

So your mother was a Leymon, Caius…

 

Caius

What do the Church want with the Pensient?

 

Arria

…I don’t know.

 

All the commands we follow are given by the Pope.

 

Tilkis

It looks like we have to find out what the Pope is up to. But we have to get out of here first.

 

Caius

Tilkis, lets rescue the other Leymons too. We can’t just leave them here.

 

Tilkis

Of course.

 

The group walks off.

 

Forest receives the new title, “The Convicted Lycanth”

 

Young Man

Thanks for saving us!

 

We want to destroy the Church right now but with the way our bodies are just now, we can’t…

 

Tilkis

We’re going to be the decoys for now so don’t be too reckless. Escape for now.

 

The escape route is the sewers that’s just up ahead.

 

It’s a nest for monsters known as Spots so be careful going through there.

 

Young Man

…Sorry but this is all we can give you just now…

 

You obtain Underground 10F Key!

 

Now you can explore even further using wireless link mode!

 

One day, we’ll be sure to pay back properly for what you have done for us today.

 

The Leymon walk off.

 

Caius

Dad, I know it’s going to be hard on you but, do your best.

 

We’ll be able to fix you up once you’re out of here.

 

Ramrus

You don’t have to worry about me. I’ve still got some strength left in me.

 

Help them distract the guards.

 

Forest

That would be a great help.

 

Arria

I’ll be a decoy too!

 

I want to know what the Pope’s true intentions are for making the Leymon suffer this much.

 

Please let me join you.

 

Tilkis

It’ll be great to have you with us.

 

Rubia

Those people… Those prosecutors who killed my father might be here too.

 

Rubia begins to walk off.

 

Caius

Rubia, what are you doing?

 

Are you going to search for them?

 

We have to help save the Leymon first.

 

Rubia

I know. I know but…

 

I’m sorry. You’re right.

 

Both Mr Forest and your father’s hurt. We have to get them out quickly.

 

l  Go into the NW room where Forest was held earlier to find a save point to the north. Once you’re ready, return through the prison room and then make your way up the stairs to the ceremonial room. You’ll run into the 3 soldiers but they’ll see Forest and run away. Save and exit the Church ready to fight Albert.

 

Arria

The soldiers are all over the place.

 

Tilkis

Keep it up everyone, we’re almost there. We’re almost out of town.

 

The party runs off and Lukius appears.

 

Lukius

Caius…

 

Suddenly Albert appears before them.

 

Rubia

The Black Knight… What’s he doing here?

 

Albert

So there you are, you rebellions.

 

Did you really think we wouldn’t find you with all this commotion?

 

Caius

Out of our way!

 

Albert

I can’t let you go. I will have to put you all under arrest.

 

Tilkis

Do you really think we’ll come along quietly?

 

We’ll just have to force our way through. We won’t go easy on you if you try to stop us.

 

Albert

Exactly my very thoughts.

 

After the fight with Albert.

 

How dare you use such shrewd tactics. Don’t you think this is over yet…!

 

Tilkis

That was a pity.

 

Your swings were light. I presume you came unprepared.

 

Caius

The soldiers are here, Tilkis! Lets get out of town quick!

 

Tilkis

Right, lets go! Farewell, Black Knight!

 

The group runs off and Lukius goes up to Albert.

 

Lukius

You let them slip away?

 

And from the rumours, I heard the captain of the Black Knights was a highly capable person too.

 

Albert

Hmph… They’re stronger than I thought.

 

This should get interesting.

 

Lukius

Sounds like you’re up to something.

 

Albert

Maybe.

 

Now will you explain why the Lycanths who were supposed to have been executed are still alive?

 

Lukius

It does not concern you. If you value your life, you will not get yourself involved.

 

All you have to do is protect this town.

 

Albert

That’s right. Protecting the capital is my duty.

 

I am the one in control here.

 

Just watch, young prosecutor.

 

Lukius

Ha!

 

So you let them escape on purpose.

 

Albert

Do you have a problem with the way we’re working?

 

Lukius

Damn you!

 

Lukius walks off.

 

Albert

There was another reason why I couldn’t capture them…

 

Allow me to use you Lycanth gentlemen a little longer… Hahaha…

 

l  Pick up any goods you need from the shops then exit Janna.

 

Caius

Damn, they’re blocking the way!

 

Tilkis

Why those Black Knights. They’re not as foolish as I thought.

 

???

Hahaha!

 

What a sight. All the little mice rounded up.

 

Or should I say, Lycanths?

 

Albert catches up again.

 

Rubia

What shall we do?

 

Caius

Damn it, what can we do!

 

Forest

Wait, I have an idea. Can you and Rubia swim, Caius?

 

Caius

I’m good at it but, why?

 

Rubia

I can a little but… why ask all of a sudden?

 

Tilkis

We have no time. You’ll just have to remember how to swim now.

 

Ramrus

I see. So that’s what you’re up to.

 

Caius

What are you all on about?

 

Forest

Listen. Jump off the bridge when I give the signal.

 

Rubia

What~?! Are you serious? We’re so high up.

 

Arria

It’s the only way we can escape.

 

Caius

Ho- How far is it to the water?

 

Tilkis

Never mind that! Lets just go!

 

Rubia

*Cries*

 

Albert

Oh? What could they be murmuring about? They don’t know when to give up.

 

Give it up and come along quietly.

 

Forest

Now!!

 

The party jumps off into the water.

 

Albert

What?!

 

Runs to the side of the bridge to find them.

 

Are they serious…?

 

A knight comes out of the town.

 

Black Knight

Sir! Our plan went accordingly! The Arch Duke was…

 

Albert

“Killed by the Lycanth”, yes?

 

Black Knight

Yes, sir!

 

Now command of the knights will be transferred to you, Lord Albert.

 

Albert

Very good. We must take action at once.

 

We must seek out those brutal, ruthless Lycanths and avenge the Arch Duke.

 

Black Knight

Yes, sir!

 

But it’s going to be difficult to find out where the Lycanths have landed from the waterfall.

 

Albert

I already have something prepared for that matter.

 

They can never escape me…

 

Hahahah!!

 

Back in the church.

 

???

Lukius. Did you obtain the Pensient?

 

Lukius

I am sorry, my Pope. I could not fulfil your orders.

 

But please, do not worry.

 

I have already made arrangements and it won’t be long before we obtain it.

 

Pope

I see.

 

You must obtain the Pensient at all costs.

 

No matter how the Leymon must suffer.

 

With the Pensient, we can rid the world of all hate and sadness and turn the surface world into a paradise.

 

Lukius

I understand, my Pope. I will do as you wish even if it means my life…

 

Pope

Ah, yes.

 

I know you’ll understand. Only you can understand my thoughts.

 

My supreme goal…

 

I’m counting on you, Lukius.

 

Lukius leaves the room.

 

Lukius

The Pope’s commands will be carried out. No matter what it takes, I will accomplish them.

 

I only have the Pope left…

 

Meanwhile, somewhere down river…

 

Caius

Ha! Where did I get carried off to?

 

Looks like it’s been a while… I wonder if everyone’s safe?

 

Looks around.

 

Dad! Arria!

 

Dad! You’re badly wounded!

 

Arria

Caius, you’re alright…

 

Ramrus

Ugh… *Pants*

 

Arria

You’re losing a lot of blood…

 

My magic can’t heal you… We have to get you to a doctor quickly.

 

Ramrus

So even my body didn’t manage to withstand the torture…

 

Caius, forget about me and run far away where the Black Knights can’t get you…

 

Caius

I can’t leave you behind, dad! I will save you!

 

Ramrus

…No, Caius… You’ve done enough. Forget… about me…

 

Caius

Don’t say that! I’m going to save you, dad!!

 

Rommy appears on top of a hill.

 

Rommy

Huhuhu… I finally found you.

 

That Priseputh curse I cast on you isn’t erased yet.

 

It’s useless to run…

 

But you know… This should be fun.

 

Since you just got reunited, I hope the two of you can entertain me.

 

Huhuhu…

 

Rommy casts a spell and changes Ramrus into his wereman form.

 

Caius

Wh- What’s wrong dad?!

 

Arria

It’s the Priseputh curse! Someone’s controlling him!

 

Caius

That magic is still left on him?!

 

Dad!

 

After the fight with Ramrus.

 

Caius

Da… Dad… Why…

 

Rommy

Huhuhu. Awww, looks like your dad’s broken down.

 

Arria

Rommy, you done this. Why did you do this…?

 

Rommy

Oh, it’s you, Arria. Hello.

 

Are you dating this little boy?

 

You shouldn’t be unfaithful.

 

Arria

Don’t say such horrible things!

 

Caius

You…

 

Rommy

Oh, sorry we got off the subject.

 

I was planning to have your dad kill you so that I could enjoy the show before taking the Pensient from you.

 

But never mind.

 

I’ll just have to destroy you myself.

 

Ramrus

Wait!

 

Rommy

Ah, the curse has gone I see.

 

But you don’t know when to give up!

 

Rommy turns Ramrus into stone.

 

Caius

Dad!

 

Rommy

What a sad end for a Lycanth.

 

It’s a good way to die.

 

Not my favourite way, of course.

 

Caius

You! Why did you kill my dad!!

 

…I won’t let you get away with this.

 

Caius changes into his wereman form.

 

Arria

Wha- What?! Caius!

 

Rommy

What! How can you be a Lycanth…!

 

After the short fight.

 

Urgh… You’re strong as a beast.

 

Next time we meet, I’ll shatter both your body and your mind.

 

Until then, I’ll leave you with the Pensient for now…

 

Rommy disappears.

 

Caius

*Panting*

 

Dad…

 

Wake up, dad.

 

We’ve finally managed to get out of the town.

 

Now you can tell me everything…

 

Arria

Caius…

 

Caius

Why… Why did they do this to dad!

 

Why is everyone around me dying!

 

What have I done wrong…

 

Arria

Caius… It must be hard for you.

 

It must be hard for you to part with your father this way…

 

Caius

Heh… Heheh!

 

But he’s not my real dad! Hahaha!

 

I even injured him myself just a moment ago too.

 

Look.

 

See this wound? I done that.

 

Arria

Stop it, Caius.

 

Caius

Because I’m a Lycanth.

 

I can do these things because I’m a Lycanth.

 

You saw me too, didn’t you?

 

…I changed into a beast too.

 

I attacked my own dad because I’m a beast.

 

Arria

Snap out of it, Caius!

 

It’s true… It’s true that you’re a Leymon.

 

But your father was killed because you’re a Lycanth.

 

Lets think together what we should do from here.

 

OK?

 

Caius

 

Caius gains a new title, “The Awakened Bloodline”!

 

Later at night by the campfire.

 

Arria

Have you calmed down now, Caius?

 

I wonder how everyone else is doing.

 

…Lets go find everyone.

 

Nothing’s going to happen if we just sit here.

 

Come on, cheer up.

 

I’m sure your father wants you to do this too.

 

Caius

….What do you know.

 

What the hell do you know, Arria!

 

I loved my dad.

 

Even though I knew he wasn’t my real dad.

 

And I just hurt the dad I loved!

 

When I turned into that beast, I couldn’t feel anything…

 

All I could think about was fighting…

 

I’m sure my mind’s going to be turned into a beast…

 

Nothing’s going to change even if I go find everyone.

 

My dad will still be dead and I’m going to stay a Lycanth.

 

Arria

Yes. Nothing changes.

 

You are you.

 

As a Leymon, nothing has changed about you.

 

But are you saying that the love you have for you father has changed?

 

You are you.

 

You will always be the Caius you already are.

 

So what do you want to do now?

 

Where do you want to go?

 

I don’t think the care you show for your friends have changed.

 

To start thinking about what you should do now…

 

You have to take your first step.

 

All it takes is one step. Why don’t you try taking it?

 

Caius

Arria… What should I do…

 

Arria

Lets go find everyone first.

 

We got split up in the river but I don’t think they could have been carried far.

 

Caius

Which part of the land are we in…?

 

Arria

The river beneath Janna’s bridge flows down towards near the village of Yaska.

 

So I think we should be somewhere between Janna and Yaska.

 

Caius

So we should reach the village of Yaska if we go west.

 

If we head east, we’ll reach Janna…

 

Arria

Yes. Shall we try going to Yaska?

 

I’m sure everyone’s safe and they’re looking for us.

 

Caius

…You’re right.

 

Arria starts walking off.

 

Arria.

 

Aria

What is it?

 

Caius

I’m sorry for earlier…

 

Arria

It’s alright, don’t worry about it.

 

Come on, lets go.

 

l  Work your way west for an event.

 

Caius

What’s wrong, Arria…?

 

At the camp fire.

 

Dad…

 

Arria

Caius, I have friends who have lost their parents when they were young too.

 

Caius

Arria…

 

Arria

Those people and their family were banished from Janna and so, they had to live in a small town to the north.

 

They couldn’t get used to the way of life and a while later, the parents died.

 

But those people didn’t give up.

 

They’re did their best to live their parents’ part too.

 

Caius

And what happened after that?

 

Arria

Those people returned to Janna and have gained quite a lot of success in society.

 

So much success that even their parents would have been surprised at.

 

Caius

Really…

 

Arria

I think it’s sad that you father died.

 

But your life has a long way to go still.

 

Don’t forget that.

 

Caius

Yeah…

 

Arria

Sorry for that long speech.

 

Caius

…..Well, do you mind if I rest a bit?

 

I’m a bit tired.

 

Arria

Have a nice long rest, Caius.

 

Caius walks off out of ear shot.

 

…But you know Caius, I don’t know if those people’s success was the right thing for them…

 

l  Continue west into the town of Yaska.

 

Yaska

 

Rubia

Caius! Arria! You two are alright!!

 

Caius

You don’t’ have to say it that loud…

 

Rubia

What! I was so worried…

 

Caius

So- Sorry.

 

I’m glad you’re alright too, Rubia.

 

By the way, where’s Mr. Forest and Mr. Tilkis?

 

Rubia

Mr. Forest is at the inn with Onii-sama.

 

…Hmmm, where’s your father?

 

Arria

There’s a lot to talk about so lets gather at the inn first.

 

l  So it’s off to the inn.

 

Tilkis

Arria and Caius!

 

Forest

So we’re finally reunited.

 

We were caught up in the strong current and were brought here to Yaska.

 

Arria

I see.

 

We were carried onto the shore along the way so we had to walk here.

 

It’s fortunate we could reunite.

 

Tilkis

Really fortunate.

 

Rubia’s been waiting for Caius all this time outside the town!

 

Rubia

Onii-sama! Don’t tell them that!

 

Tilkis

Hahaha, sorry.

 

Forest

Looks like you’re not too happy, Caius. Where’s your father?

 

Don’t tell me he’s…

 

Caius

Father’s… dead…

 

Tilkis

What! What happened?!

 

Arria

The prosecutor Rommy took control of him and made Caius attack him.

 

Her spell was broken during the fight but Rommy finished him off…

 

Tilkis

How could that happen! I can’t believe all that happened while we were gone…

 

Forest

Lord Ramrus…

 

Tilkis

…It was a regrettable thing what happened to your father.

 

I know it’s a shock for you but, you have to get a hold of yourself.

 

Caius

…That wasn’t the only thing that happened.

 

When Rommy finished off my father, I lost control of myself…

 

…I changed into a wereman.

 

Rubia

You changed into a wereman?!

 

Forest

I see…

 

I didn’t think you could since you didn’t have a Zanktu but…

 

Arria

It was only because Caius could transform that we managed to get away from our pursuer.

 

Tilkis

So you transformed without you knowing.

 

It must have been chaos but because of your power, you managed to save Arria and your own life.

 

Caius

My power saved lives…?!

 

Forest

You may hate that feeling of going berserk when you’ve turned into a wereman.

 

But that was just your feelings due to your father’s death. It wasn’t anything wrong.

 

I know you can’t get yourself to understand but, don’t forget that.

 

Caius

Yes, I understand…

 

Rubia

Caius…

 

Tilkis

Well, now that we know both our situations, lets decide on our plans now.

 

First, there’s a number of things we don’t understand.

 

We now know what the Pope was doing with that underground prison.

 

And that he’s looking for the Pensient.

 

However, we don’t know what he is planning to do with it.

 

Arria, do you have any ideas about it?

 

Arria

I never imagined there would be so many Leymon in that prison until I saw it myself…

 

He maybe searching for the Pensient to create Life Magic.

 

Forest

Life Magic?

 

Tilkis

How is that related to the Leymon?

 

Arria

The Life Magic is a Priseputh. In other words, another type of magic.

 

It’s said that it can call back the spirits of the dead and make the living immortal.

 

Caius

Call back the dead…? Could that really be done?

 

Arria

I don’t know…

 

But our Pope does seem to believe that it can be done.

 

He needs the Pensient to cast the Life Magic.

 

But the church doesn’t know how to create the Pensient.

 

That’s why he’s capturing Leymon to find out where the Pensient is.

 

That’s what I think this is about.

 

Rubia

Pensient… Do you mean that red stone?

 

Does it belong to the Leymon?

 

Arria

I don’t really know the details but, it’s said that the Leymon created the Pensient.

 

It’s also said that powerful magic is concealed in it…

 

Of course, I don’t know if it’s true or not.

 

But in the records of the Church, a giant Pensient was cared during the Weremen Battle.

 

Now only the Leymon know the whereabouts of that giant Pensient.

 

It can only be the reason why they were torturing the Leymon. To find out where the Pensient is.

 

The Church has tried to cast Life Magic many times now.

 

But it seems it has always ended in failure…

 

It’s most likely because they didn’t gather Pensients and make use of that concealed power.

 

But it seems there’s a side effect after using Life Magic.

 

Tilkis

Side effect?

 

Arria

After trying to cast Life Magic, those Spots started appearing in the sewers.

 

It’s rumoured that that’s the side effect.

 

Tilkis

I thought so… So the source of those monsters is in this land.

 

Arria

What do you mean?

 

Tilkis

Ah yes, we haven’t told you about that yet.

 

Forest and I actually came to this land to investigate the reason why Spots appeared in our homeland.

 

Forest

We have information that people who appeared as members of the Church performed large scale Priseputh in our land.

 

It most likely have been Life Magic.

 

Under the magic’s influence, the Spots appeared.

 

Tilkis

Now that we know the reason behind them, we clearly know what our next goal is.

 

We have to find a way to stop the Spots appearing and increasing in numbers.

 

Forest

The Pope wants the Pensient.

 

And one of the them is in Caius’ possession.

 

If his Pendant is one too then that makes two Pensients.

 

Arria. Can they experiment with Life Magic event without the Pensients?

 

Arria

Most likely…

 

They will need a giant Pensient to cast such extremely complex magic like Life Magic.

 

It’s so complex that they haven’t come to fully understand it yet.

 

Without a catalyst that has great magical power stored in it, they can’t cast it.

 

Tilkis

Then with Caius possessing one of them, we can prevent them from experimenting with magic once.

 

Forest

But there are a number of other Pensients too…

 

Arria

We don’t know exactly how many there are. It’s an ancient story after all...

 

Forest

How many dose the Pope have?

 

Arria

I think it’s safe to say that our Pope has lost possession of them all.

 

Ever since the Spots started appearing, he hasn’t experimented.

 

Tilkis

Then that should make things simpler.

 

All we have to do is exterminate all the Spots that have appeared so far.

 

Arria

No… The number of Spots is on the rise.

 

We don’t know why it’s rising however.

 

It’s like… a white cloth that just got stained…

 

Tilkis

…This will be troublesome…

 

Forest

Prince Tilkis. We will have to seek out and learn about the Life Magic itself that’s creating all these Spots.

 

Tilkis

You’re right.

 

Forest

The Priseputh was originally something developed by we Leymon.

 

If we go to the Leymon’s city, we might be able to learn something.

 

Arria

The city of the desert, Leymon…

 

Forest

There’s no guarantee that the city still remains but…

 

What do you want to do? Shall we try going there?

 

Tilkis

Yes, of course. We can’t return empty handed.

 

Caius

…Could I continue travelling with you and Tilkis?

 

I managed to transform without a Zanktu. I really want to know…

 

Whether I’m really human or a Leymon.

he city of the desert, Leymon... something.

ped by we Leymon.

that' far.

l is.

ared in our homeland.

 I want to do it for my father…

 

Rubia

I won’t let the prosecutors get away for killing my parents and Caius’ father too!

 

I will go with you!

 

Arria

I will too… Please take me with you!

 

Rubia

But Arria, you’ll be betraying the Church…

 

Arria

I don’t mind.

 

As long as I don’t know what this Life Magic is and what the Church is after…

 

I can’t return and continue believing in them.

 

Caius

…I understand how you feel Arria. Lets go together.

 

We’ll find out what’s happening in this land…

 

And where each of us should be going.

 

We must do this so that there will be no more people in sorrow.

 

Tilkis

Alright! I know our goals are different but we’re all comrades now!

 

Forest

Well then, let us head to the desert.

 

It’s going to be a long journey.

 

There should be merchants who are familiar with the Leymon Desert to the north.

 

We should gather information from them.

 

Tilkis

To the north huh… Right. Lets go!

 

l  Speak to the barmaid for a password. Don’t’ worry about noting it down because you can refer to it again under the Password option at the title screen. Entering this and your ID from the Password screen will give you access to a wallpaper on the official JP website. Now go pickup the goods you need then exit Yaska and follow the winding path north. About midway, the party will rest themselves.

 

Rubia

It’s said that Life Magic can revive the dead yes?

 

Arria

Yes. I don’t know if it’s true or not…

 

Rubia

But so many lives are being lost to carry out this Life Magic.

 

It’s as if it isn’t magic that resurrects the dead. It’s magic that kills people…

 

Caius

It’s true.

 

Even my father’s become one of those lives lost because of it.

 

All because of them…

 

Rubia

Hey, Arria.

 

What kind of people are those two prosecutors, Rommy and Lukius?

 

Arria

They are the youngest prosecutors there is.

 

I’m sure they’re around the same age as you and Caius.

 

But it’s their abilities are also the best out of them all.

 

The Pope has great trust in them.

 

Caius

I can’t believe they’re around my age yet they can such cruel things…

 

How can they!

 

Arria

Long ago, Rommy and Lukius weren’t like this.

 

Both of them were very cute and nice kids…

 

Just like you and Rubia.

 

Caius

You think Rubia’s cute? Well now that’s odd.

 

Rubia

What do you mean by that!

 

I’ve been cute since long ago. You just haven’t noticed!

 

Forest

Come on now, Arria’s still speaking.

 

So Lukius and Rommy change huh…

 

Arria

Yes…

 

Tilkis

But what in Arreula could have changed them like that?

 

Arria

That much I don’t know…

 

Tilkis

I see…

 

A short pause.

 

Arria

Please excuse me for a moment.

 

Arria walks off.

 

l  And continue north where you left off. Once you get to the bridge, another event takes place and you’ll fight Albert again.

 

???

Stop!!

 

Caius

Bla- Black Knights!

 

Albert

You took your time, young Lycanth.

 

I see you managed to survive such a great fall.

 

Heh, should have expected something like that from a dog.

 

Caius

What!

 

Tilkis

Listen, Black Knight. Albert was it?

 

What are you doing so far away from the capital?

 

Forest

Isn’t protecting the capital of Janna the Black Knight’s duty?

 

Tilkis

Are you sure no problems will arise for the Black Knight Captain to be out here?

 

Albert

Usually it would be but the situation’s changed.

 

Few days ago, a group of Lycanths who escaped from the Church infiltrated the Arch Duke’s fortress.

 

The Arch Duke who was already badly ill were then killed by them.

 

Now don’t you think we Black Knights should be avenging him?

 

Tilkis

What?!

 

Albert

Now that the Arch Duke is dead, there is a great effect on our country’s politics.

 

Now I have unified all the knight groups.

 

Tilkis

Why you… You used that incident to your own advantage!

 

Caius

And you put the blame on us!

 

Albert

All of you are convicts of this country now.

 

The knights of Arreulla will come and kill you.

 

However…

 

If you hand over the present you got from the Imperial Guard, I am willing to let it all pass.

 

Tilkis

What are you babbling about?

 

For one thing, do you know what the item is?

 

Albert

To be honest, I don’t know everything about it.

 

But without it, I won’t have the power to defeat the Pope.

 

I mustn’t let it fall into his hands.

 

That’s the power that the stone possesses.

 

And above all things, the stone most likely must have been a possession of the King’s if an Imperial Guard had it.

 

Now the Church is after it.

 

And they even killed both that young boy and girl’s parents to get it.

 

Rubia

How did you know about my parents?

 

Albert

…Aren’t you worried?

 

If you cooperate with me then you will learn all the riddles and be able to avenge them.

 

Caius

No matter what you do, we can’t hand it over to anyone!

 

Tilkis

That’s right.

 

And I hate those that are up to no good in the shadows!

 

Albert

So our deal’s off huh.

 

You foolish people…

 

Very well. You can all be the paving stones to my ambition!

 

l  After the fight with Albert.

 

Urgh… Looks like I underestimated the Lycanth’s power…

 

Black Knight 1

Lord Albert lost?!

 

Black Knight 2

The- The Lycanth’s are going to attack us!

 

Tilkis

His subordinates are all confused now that their captain’s lost. Now’s our chance to run!

 

Caius’ party runs off.

 

Albert

Damn it…I’ve never had to put up with such shame!

 

But you have no where to run. You can’t hide anything from me…

 

I look forward to the next time we meet. Hahaha…

 

Meanwhile…

 

Forest

How dare they… So they killed the Arch Duke. Looks like they’ll use anything necessary to increase their own power.

 

Tilkis

Now we’re framed for the murder of the Arch Duke.

 

My my… This has turned out to be some journey.

 

Caius

I’m so ticked. How dare they use people like that.

 

Rubia

And he looked so smug about it too. I want to hit him the next time I see him!

 

Arria

…Lets leave it there.

 

Now that we’ve escaped the Black Knights, lets hurry to Leymon.

 

l  Walk on a bit and the party will camp.

 

Caius

I feel kind of bored.

 

Rubia

I’m not.

 

Arria’s told me a lot about Priseputh.

 

Caius

Now that you mention it, what is “Priseputh”?

 

How does it differ from magic?

 

Arria

Priseputh is the correct name for magic.

 

They’re special words used to control the energy in the air.

 

Caius

…Oh, I see.

 

Forest

It’s said that we Leymon invented it originally.

 

When humans saw it, they were scared and didn’t understand how it worked so they called it “magic”.

 

Tilkis

I see.

 

I don’t know how it works even now.

 

Caius

My head kind of hurts listening to you explain it there.

 

I’m not good at studying!

 

l  Nearly there! Keep heading north. Once you enter the next area of the map, continue to the northern point to reach a wall.

 

Cais

Woah, that’s one big wall!

 

The party walks up to it.

 

Rubia

I wonder if there’s a fortress here.

 

Arria

Uhuhu. This isn’t a fortress.

 

Forest

This is the Northern Gate.

 

It’s a wall that stands between Areulla and the northern forest of Bognam.

 

Rubia

Why did they spend time building this wall?

 

Forest

The northern forest is split into two. Bognam in the west and Algam in the east.

 

It snows there all year round but ogres live there.

 

Caius

Ogres?! Monsters that attack people?!

 

Forest

No. They too are scared of people.

 

There are scholars who wonder if we Leymon or the ogres were once human’s ancestors.

 

Caius

Leymon ancestors… and human ancestors.

 

Forest

When the Leymon race was scattered and the humans took control of Areulla…

 

They forced the ogres out of the land to Bognam and constructed this wall.

 

The ogres fought back but, they couldn’t stand up against the might of the humans.

 

So sometimes they would come and attack this land to try and retrieve their homeplace.

 

Rubia

So that’s why this wall is placed here so that they can’t get in…

 

Caius

Kind of a sad story…

 

Forest

In any case, this is most northern point of the front lines.

 

The wall is guarded by knights.

 

There’s a small village inside but…

 

Tilkis

So to get to the desert we have to go all the way east from here?

 

Forest

Yes, your highness.

 

All the way east. We have to get through the eastern gate.

 

Tilkis

Then we will need some supplies if we’re going to continue.

 

The knights might search us as visitors here but…

 

It’s probably better to gamble it that way than risk being attacked by ogres.

 

Arria

So we’re going to try our luck.

 

Will it be alright?

 

Tilkis

If they realise we aren’t visitors then we can run into Bognam.

 

Lets just do this. It’s going to be a long journey after all.

 

l  So enter the small door to the side next to the big gate.

 

Forest

We made it in.

 

Tilkis

Looks like they’re not going to search us.

 

Caius

What do we do from here?

 

If we hang around here too long the Black Knights and soldiers will be onto us.

 

Arria

Never be too hasty, Caius.

 

I understand how you feel but, it’s too dangerous to continue our journey without planning.

 

Forest

That’s right, Caius.

 

First we gather our supplies and information.

 

There should be merchants here who are familiar with the Leymon Desert.

 

Prince Tilkis, lets split into two parties here again.

 

Tilkis

You’re right.

 

Well then, I will have the two ladies join me.

 

Rubia

And Arria will be my *Onee-sama this time.

 

*Older sister.

 

Onee-sama!

 

Arria

Onee-sama you say…

 

Forest

Then Caius will be with me. You OK with that?

 

Caius

Yeah, I don’t mind. So where should we rendezvous?

 

Tilkis

Well…

 

Once you’re ready, lets rendezvous here.

 

Rubia

Don’t be too reckless, Caius. And don’t eat anything weird, OK?

 

Caius

You don’t have to tell me that, Rubia!

 

Rubia

Maybe…

 

Getting angry so easily is what makes you like a kid.

 

Caius

What!

 

Arria

Come on now, you two. You can fight later.

 

Rubia and Arria walks off.

 

Tilkis

This is the knight’s area of control. Be careful.

 

l  Go up the stairs and an event will take place where Forest reminds Caius what they have to do. Speak to the merchant in the corner.

 

Merchant

Oh, what’s a child doing here? Are you travellers?

 

Caius

I’m 15! I’m not a kid, I’m a man!

 

Merchant

Hahaha, sorry. Please don’t take it the wrong way.

 

So where are you from?

 

Caius

Well, we’re… We’re from the south.

 

Merchant

I se. So where are you going from here?

 

Caius

Well, we were thinking of going to the desert!

 

Merchant

What? I see you’re serious.

 

Let me give you a warning.

 

Don’t even think about crossing the desert.

 

It’s a land of death.

 

Many Mayashis have travelled there in search of any remains of the Lycanths.

 

I haven’t heard about any of them finding any treasure.

 

Caius

Lycanth treasure? Land of death?

 

What are you on about?

 

Merchant

What? You don’t know? Then I’ll then you.

 

There is a Lycanth city that remains in the centre of the desert.

 

The City of Leymons.

 

But the city was destroyed during the Weremen Battle.

 

It’s only in ruins now I heard.

 

Because of that battle, there isn’t any water, trees or grass in that area. Not a bud will grow.

 

That’s why it’s called the land of death.

 

And even now that City of Leymons remain in the desert?

 

Merchant

Yes, it remains.

 

Many Mayashis go there in search of treasure.

 

Caius

I understand. Thank you.

 

l  Now enter the inn to the right and speak to the priest there.

 

Norton

Hello. My name is Norton and I’m here to let people know about the services of the Church.

 

Caius

I’m Caius.

 

Norton

Caius.

 

I went to Bognam lately, trying to educate the ogres.

 

I tried some propagation but it’s too hard with them being so violent.

 

I ended up wounded all over.

 

Caius

The propagation must have been tough…

 

Norton

After I was healed, I thought I would head to Bognam again.

 

But there’s one thing I have to do before that.

 

I have to hand over a scripture to Knight Corum at the eastern gate.

 

It’s a book that has been passed down through the generations in his family.

 

Being all worn out, he had handed it to me to fix up.

 

Due to the propagation in Bognam, it took me some time before I could fix it…

 

But I just finished it the last day.

 

I want to hand it over to him without delay but it’s a bit embarrassing.

 

Due to these ogre wounds I can’t.

 

I have a long journey ahead of me so…

 

I would like to continue resting up.

 

Caius, could you take this scripture to him if you can?

 

l  Just press A to accept then go pickup what you need from the NPCs. Once you’re ready, go back to rendezvous point and try to exit for an event.

 

Tilkis

You two are late.

 

We were just discussing whether to leave you behind or not.

 

Caius

We got some info from a merchant, Tilkis.

 

It looks like there really is a City of Leymons in the desert.

 

Arria

That is good news. Did you find out details about anything else?

 

Forest

It seems there a lot of people who are after any remains too.

 

Arria

That can’t be helped. It’s a legendary city after all.

 

Rubia

Hey, Arria. Is the City of Leymons really that famour?

 

Arria

All I’ve heard are rumours about it. It was the main place where the Weremen Battle took place.

 

But since the battle ended, the eastern gate was built and people could no longer travel there freely.

 

I heard they built it because the area around the city became a desert and the number of fiendish monsters has increased…

 

It seems there’s more to it than that now that we think about the current situation.

 

It might be to guard any information about the Life Magic.

 

Rubia

Unlike the ogres from the northern gate, the Leymon weren’t forced out of their country, right?

 

Forest

Yeah.

 

We Leymon originally lived our lives with the City of Leymons at the centre.

 

There are no records of humans taking away our land.

 

Also, the area around city wasn’t a desert.

 

It’s said that before the Weremen Battle, the land was rich and fertile.

 

Caius

So I wonder why it became a desert?

 

The merchant that gave us information earlier said it was because of the battle but, how could that have been…?

 

Arria

I don’t know.

 

Some say the large scale Priseputh they used during the Weremen Battle went out of control and the desert was created…

 

But I don’t know what the truth is.

 

Tilkis

Right, now that we’ve gathered the information we need. Lets hurry to the City of Leymons.

 

We’ll have to get through the eastern gate.

 

We should reach there by going east from here.

 

Caius

Right, let us depart!

 

l  Go east to the gate to find Rommy and Lukius waiting.

 

Lukius

Stop!

 

Caius

Prosecutors!

 

Rubia

You’re the two that came to our village!

 

Lukius

Lycanth’s son from Fern and Priest Natwick’s daughter.

 

Hand over the item you got from the Imperial Guard.

 

Rubia

How dare you…! How dare you kill my mother and father!

 

And Caius’ father too!

 

What is the Church planning to achieve by taking people’s lives?!

 

Lukius

Caius’ father too…?

 

…Rommy. You killed him without my consent?

 

Rommy

It was just a worthless Lycanth.

 

Trash that didn’t have any information leading to the Pensient.

 

Nothing to be concerned over.

 

Lukius

….

 

Tilkis

I won’t let you say that!!

 

Lukius

Hand over the Pensient!

 

If you do, we’ll let this pass. You don’t want any more deaths, do you…

 

Rubia

What are you saying, you murderer!

 

Rommy

Looks like you’re mistaken about something.

 

We weren’t the ones that killed your mother and father.

 

Rubia

Wha- What do you mean?!

 

Rommy

The Lycanth that tried to escape from that village killed them.

 

Caius

Wha- What?!

 

Rommy

We are members of the Church.

 

Maybe we would kill Lyncanths but we would never lay hands on a priest.

 

Caius

Stop lying!

 

You killed Rubia’s mother and father that time!

 

Rommy

Why don’t you try thinking about it?

 

Caius would never be able to tell you that his very own father killed your parents, would he now?

 

Try asking him.

 

But if you’re really trying to become a priestess, you should forgive him.

 

With an open heart.

 

Both he and his father are Lycanths. Beasts.

 

If you treat him with kindness, he’ll tell you the truth.

 

Caius

Unforgivable!

 

My dad’s not a beast!!

 

You killed Rubia’s mother and father!

 

l  After the short fight with Rommy.

 

Rubia

Caius!

 

Forest

Damn, his power went out of control…!

 

Rommy

*Panting* I can’t believe he managed to fight me that far…

 

Rommy, we’re leaving!

 

Rubia

Hey, wait!

 

Rubia runs towards the prosecutors but they disappear.

 

Tilkis

Forget about them for now, Rubia!

 

Arria

Caius!

 

Everyone runs to Caius lying on the ground.

 

Tilkis

Forest, is Caius alright?

 

Forest

…He should be alright.

 

But it’s going to be some time before he wakes up.

 

Tilkis

I see…

 

We can’t do much with Caius in this condition for now. Lets setup camp and wait for him to wake up.

 

Arria

Yes, lets do that.

 

Rubia

(Ca- Caius changed into a beast…)

 

During the night…

 

Caius

Ugh…

 

Wh- Where am I…

 

And what…?

 

Tilkis

You’re awake, Caius.

 

We were getting worried because you weren’t waking up.

 

Caius

…I transformed into a wereman again.

 

But why did I change?

 

I never changed since that time when my father died…

 

What’s happening to my body? I don’t remember what happened during the fights either…

 

The next time I change into a wereman, I might end up attacking you all…

 

Just like that time… when I attacked my father…

 

Forest

Caius, it’s nothing to worry about.

 

All it means it’s that you’ve waking up as a Leymon.

 

That’s why you can’t control your powers yet. I’ll teach you all about it.

 

I don’t know why your power wasn’t awakened until now.

 

But being a Leymon is nothing to be ashamed of.

 

No matter what form you take, you will be you.

 

Tilkis

That’s right.

 

Whether you’re a Leymon or not, it doesn’t change the fact you’re alive.

 

Caius

Thanks, Tilkis, Mr. Forest…

 

Rubia gets up and starts to walk off.

 

Arria

Where are you going, Rubia?

 

It’s dangerous if you go out too far.

 

Rubia

I’ll be alright.

 

I just want to feel the night air a bit.

 

I won’t go too far.

 

Arria

I see… Be careful then. If anything happens, let us know right away.

 

Rubia walks off somewhere alone.

 

Rubia

Caius is a Lycanth… Caius… is a Leymon…

 

I was scared when I saw him fight there.

 

He had a great power beyond humans…

 

How should I face Caius from now on…

 

Caius walks up to Rubia.

 

Caius

Rubia, everyone’s going to be worried about you if you don’t go back now.

 

Rubia

Oh!

 

You’re right. Sorry.

 

I’ll go back right away.

 

Caius

…What’s wrong? You don’t look too happy.

 

Rubia

No, it’s nothing.

 

But are you alright, Caius?

 

Caius

Me? Yeah, I’m alright…

 

Rubia

Caius… You know, I…

 

Caius

Hmmm?

 

Rubia

No, it’s nothing.

 

Come on, lets go back.

 

l  Enter the gates and to the guard on the right. You’ll hand over the scriptures and he’ll ask you to deliver payment to Priest Norton. Go upstairs to speak to the lady for another password then stock up on what you need as usual. Speak to the guard next to the weapon seller and Tilkis will bribe him to let the party pass. Now it’s up to you if you want to go back to deliver the payment to Norton or not. If you do, you’re rewarded with 3000G and the recipe to create Borshch (ボルシチ), Russian soup. Caius also gains the title of “Propagation Helper”. Once ready, head into the desert. Note that you can’t go back after you enter the desert!

 

Desert

 

Caius

Woah! It’s completely barren here!

 

Is there really any living things here?

 

Forest

It became like this since 100 years ago after the Weremen Battle.

 

I’ve said this before but before that, the land was rich and fertile.

 

Rubia

I wonder how it ended up like this…

 

Forest

Not much has been explained about what happened during the Weremen Battle.

 

The Church might know something since they’re gathering Pensients.

 

Arria

The Church sealed off this place because it’s too dangerous.

 

And they set up this eastern gate…

 

That means it’s been 100 years since they did this.

 

Yet, it’s only been a few years since the Pope and the prosecutors began to cast Life Magic.

 

Tilkis

Yes, it is odd…

 

In any case, as long as we can’t cross this desert alive, there’s no meaning to this.

 

Lets be careful when we cross.

 

Caius

…Now that you mention it, where abouts is the City of Leymon in the desert?

 

Forest

If we head south from here, there is a place named Laurus, the only town in this desert.

 

I heard that the raiders who are after the treasures in the City of Leymon stay there so maybe we can find out something.

 

Tilkis

Then lets go to Laurus first and learn more about the City of Leymon.

 

l  Go south and the party will stop to camp.

 

Caius

…Mr Forest, could you tell me more about transforming into a wereman?

 

At the camp fire.

 

Forest

Well then, let me explain about transforming Caius.

 

Caius

Please, go ahead.

 

Forest

When we Leymon transform into weremen during battle, we gain great power.

 

Our attack power increases greatly and we won’t even wince at our opponent’s attacks.

 

However, you can’t always transform into a wereman.

 

You can only transform when you’re below half HP and your TP is above 80%.

 

To put it another way it’s when you’re forced into a corner and you only have a minimum of strength left.

 

When you can transform, you will feel something within yourself.

 

When you do, all you have to is unleash that power with all your might.

 

However, once you’ve transformed your TP will begin to drop and once it reaches 0, you will return to your former self. You must keep that in mind.

 

…And there is one more important thing.

 

Even though you will have a great increase in power as a wereman, it’s possible that you will go berserk if you can’t control your power.

 

When that happens, others will have a difficult time calming you down if they aren’t a Leymon.

 

So Caius.

 

We must never both transform at the same time.

 

I want us both to agree on this.

 

Caius

Yes, I understand.

 

Caius earned the ability to Transform!

 

l  Now you can select the very last option under Caius’ move list to transform into a wereman! Continue south to Laurus.

 

Laurus

 

l  Speak to the man by the dock behind one of the houses to learn more about the City of Leymon for an event.

 

Caius

According to what we’ve learned here, the City of Leymon should be in the centre of the desert.

 

Forest

Yes.

 

But it won’t be easy to find. We have to prepare ourselves well here first.

 

Caius

I know. We’ll be fine.

 

l  So pickup the items you need and get ready to head to the centre of the desert. If you want, there is a side quest you can do before that. Speak to the girl Maya in the inn and you’ll learn that she can’t go outside because her skin’s so sensitive to light. She needs a Sand Lily out in the desert to cure her illness. Head directly east of Laurus during the night and you’ll find a shining circle. That’s where you can pick up the lily. Returning the lily to her will give you a Healing Ring which heals a member’s HP a little after a battle and you’ll gain the title “Maya’s Friend”. Now head into the centre of the desert to the City of Leymon.

 

City of Leymon

 

Caius

…So this is the City of Leymon? It looks like a graveyard…

 

Rubia

I’m… scared.

 

It feels like lots of eyes are looking at me.

 

Forest

Looks the Leymon here have been turned into stone statues.

 

They’re faces are full of anger…

 

Caius

As if their souls were taken from them.

 

Arria

It definitely doesn’t feel like a welcoming place.

 

Something that we don’t know happened here during the Weremen Battle.

 

That’s why the Church prohibited any entry into this City of Leymon.

 

Forest

The Weremen Battle took place 100 years ago.

 

The records have been burned and those who witnessed it have died.

 

What’s left are rumours that a giant Pensient was created and there was a war.

 

The Church could only have found the Life Magic here.

 

Tilkis

Right.

 

Lets just go around searching for clues.

 

l  Enter the building ahead then go upstairs to fight Lukius.

 

Forest

This is the library?

 

There might be some records remaining of what happened that time.

 

Prince Tilkis, lets look over this place carefully.

 

Tilkis

Yeah, lets split up and check it out.

 

Splitting up and looking through the books..

 

???

There’s no need to search.

 

Lukius and Rommy appears from the stairs.

 

Rommy

We’ve been waiting for a long time.

 

I was getting worried if you passed out in the desert.

 

Caius

You two!

 

Tilkis

You two are relentless, coming after us again.

 

Lukius

We were waiting here for you. So that there wouldn’t be any more dead bodies.

 

Caius

What!

 

Rommy

There is nothing left here.

 

Lukius

What you wanted from here has already been taken by the Church.

 

All has been passed onto our Pope.

 

Arria

What is Life Magic? It is what you’ve been searching for here, isn’t it?

 

Rommy

Arria.

 

Are you asking us that for your friends?

 

Arria

Don’t answer my question with another question!

 

What is our Pope trying to do with Life Magic?

 

And what is the Life Magic?

 

Lukius

…Let me tell you then.

 

Our Pope is relieving this world of its suffering.

 

This world where humans, Lycanths and ogres are hurting each other.

 

Our Pope will call and return those lost sacred souls back to this world.

 

Breaking them from the chains of hatred.

 

Forest

Are you saying he has to sacrifice the Leymon to do that!

 

All the Leymon who have been living quiet lives and who know nothing have been hunted down and tortured so that he can find out about the Pensient.

 

Do you call that bringing peace to this world?! That is arrogance!

 

Lukius

It is not arrogance!

 

Once the Life Magic has been completed, the Lycanth will have their lives back too.

 

In other words, these ruins which were once the City of Leymon will be revived.

 

Lycanth hunting is nothing but a one time pain that can not be skipped for that purpose.

 

Tilkis

Are you serious? How can we believe something so ridiculous!

 

Rommy

Oh, I don’t like that heavy suspicion you have about you. But our Pope does seriously have this all planned.

 

I can’t have you saying that Lycanth hunting is just his arrogance.

 

Caius

You’re going to summon back those lost lives you say.

 

Don’t say it so lightly when you can take lives away so easily!

 

You’ll never be able to do it!

 

…No matter how much you wish for it, you can’t resurrect dead people.

 

Rommy

You Lycanths are the ones wasting away lives.

 

The ones that killed the Natwick couple were a Lycanth. Or should I say, your father.

 

Even your father turned his fangs towards you in the end.

 

And you’re the same. Doesn’t it feel fun to turn into a beast?

 

Turning into a beast then cleaving away flesh, breaking bones just like in dreams.

 

You looked SO happy.

 

Caius

…I don’t remember. I don’t remember anything like that!

 

Rommy

Even your father…

 

Looked really happy when he killed the Natwick couple…

 

Rubia

Stop it…

 

Caius

You’re lying! Dad never done it!

 

You were the one that done it all!

 

Rubia

Stop it!

 

Lukius

No, we won’t stop.

 

We even have proof that the Lycanth’s think of lives too lightly.

 

That Pensient you possess.

 

It is of the Lycanth’s souls.

 

Caius

What?

 

Lukius

The Pensient you received from the Imperial Guard.

 

It is made from the lives of thousands of Lycanths.

 

Forest

What…?! Thousands…?

 

That could never happen!

 

Lukius

It’s true that it’s unimaginable with current techniques.

 

But 100 years ago, it was possible for Lycanths.

 

It was the Lycanths who began the Weremen Battle after all, a war fought between Lycanths themselves.

 

During the battle, the Prime Minister Couber of the City of Leymon…

 

Tried to use a powerful Priseputh to counter the rebellious army that was trying to take over the city.

 

However, to do that he needed a powerful material.

 

For that material, Couber chose the citizens of the city.

 

He drew out the souls from them all and used them as the material he needed.

 

What was made after that is the Pensient you possess.

 

He betrayed his own people and changed the residents into stone.

 

Tilkis

Is- Is that really true…

 

Forest

Tha- That can’t be…

 

Rommy

Now do you understand?

 

Your ancestors were the ones that went crazy!

 

What’s wrong with using what they created?

 

It is out Pope’s benevolence to revive the dead Lycanth.

 

I hope you understand.

 

Rubia

Lies! Don’t lie to us anymore!

 

Caius’ father would never kill my mother and father!

 

The Leymon would never kill their own people to make the Pensient!

 

Tell us the truth now!

 

Rubia runs up to Rommy.

 

Rommy

Oh, what are you going to do? Kill me?

 

Caius

Rubia, no!

 

Lukius stands in Caius’ way.

 

Lukius

I’m sorry but, the rest of you will be facing me.

 

Caius

Out the way!

 

l  After the fight with Lukius.

 

Lukius

Ugh…

 

Tilkis

His face looks just like Caius!

 

Forest

What’s going on?

 

Caius

Lukius, who are you?!

 

Lukius

…I have no need to tell you.

 

But you all are strong.

 

We won’t be able to take the Pensient away from you by force.

 

But it’s already too late.

 

Caius

Wait, Rubia…! What did you do to Rubia!

 

Lukius

We’ve taken her away now.

 

If you want her back then you will hand over the Pensient.

 

Once you’ve made up your mind, bring the Pensient to the eastern gate.

 

I don’t think you will leave her behind and go off somewhere else.

 

Caius

Damn you! Give Rubia back!

 

Lukius

Hahaha! We’ll be waiting for you.

 

Lukius disappears.

 

At the eastern gate.

 

Rubia

I’m a hostage right? Why didn’t you throw me into the prison?

 

Lukius

I’m not that rough towards ladies.

 

While you’re here, you will be my guest.

 

…However, you can’t leave this room.

 

Rubia

If I can’t go outside then this is no different from a prison.

 

That face you have underneath that mask must have the same cold expression.

 

Lukius

It’s up to you what you think about me.

 

But there’s one thing I don’t understand about you.

 

Why are you together with the Lycanths?

 

They are terrible beasts. They hurt people and will only destroy this world.

 

How can you stay with such monsters yet feel fine about it?

 

Rubia

…It has nothing to do with you.

 

I should be asking why you’re hunting down heretics so hard?

 

Lukius

I am hunting down Lycanths because my Pope wishes so.

 

Rubia

Are you saying that you would kill if the Pope commanded you to?

 

Lukius

…That is right. If my Pope gives the command, I will obey.

 

There is no one who have not been overflowed by his benevolence. His love spreads to all people.

 

And I have said this before.

 

If the Life Magic succeeds then Lycanths will be resurrected.

 

All people, no matter what race will be able to live in harmony.

 

For that to happen, I don’t care if I am called a murderer!

 

Rubia

Don’t say such foolish things! You’re just being controlled by the Pope!

 

Lukius

Don’t say that as if you understand!

 

I’m not being controlled. I am serving the Pope with my own will.

 

He will save this world with Life Magic.

 

And we will need the Pensient at all costs.

 

That is why I will continue hunting down Lycanths.

 

Rubia

No matter how many worlds you save… Or if you’ll resurrect everyone or not…

 

It’s not right to kill the Leymon and other people who have done on wrong!

 

…I’ll never forgive you two for killing my mother and father!

 

Lukius

…I never saw your parents dying.

 

I heard that the Lycanth killed them.

 

Rubia

That’ a lie!

 

You can’t trick me by saying that!

 

???

No, it’s true.

 

Rommy enters.

 

Your parents were killed by the Lycanth.

 

Rubia

You’re lying!

 

Rommy

I told you that before, did I not? Why are you putting the blame on we members of the church?

 

It must have been that young Lycanth that told you this.

 

You too saw that boy change into a beast.

 

It’s terrifying…

 

A Lycanth can change both their mind and bodies into a beast.

 

Once they’ve changed into a beast, they can’t distinguish anything.

 

They then hurt everything.

 

Rubia

Stop it…

 

Rommy

Caius hurt his own father.

 

Did you not hear about that?

 

Please trust us! We are priests of the Church.

 

Rubia

Stop it! Stop it please!

 

I don’t know…

 

I don’t know what to believe in anymore…

 

Lukius

…I too think like that sometimes.

 

I think to myself whether what I’m doing now is right or wrong…

 

But our Pope has told us that sacrifices are needed for the greater goal.

 

But I ask myself, do we really need any more sacrifices other than the Lycanths to save the world?

 

I don’t know too…

 

Rubia

You don’t know and yet you continue to do these things?!

 

Are you just going to leave it like that?!

 

Lukius turns away.

 

I feel sorry for you…

 

I can’t believe you know it’s wrong yet, you refuse to realise it!

 

Lukius

All I can do is trust in him. And our Pope needs me.

 

You won’t understand how deep our bond is.

 

…Neither would Caius.

 

Rubia

Caius?

 

What about Caius? What do you have to do with Caius?

 

I’m Caius’ shadow…

 

Rubia’s confused.

 

…We’ve talked long enough. We will leave it there.

 

Your friends should be here soon with the Pensient.

 

Rommy

Once we have the Pensient, you and the others can go freely.

 

We are members of the Church. Trust us.

 

Rommy and Lukius walks off.

 

Rubia

Father… Mother…

 

What should I do… What should I believe in?

 

Rubia earns the new title, “Troubled Girl”!

 

Back in the City of Leymon.

 

Tilkis

Caius… Have you come to a decision?

 

Caius

…Yes.

 

We’ll… give them this stone.

 

Arria

Are you really OK with that?

 

Caius

Yes. I can’t go and leave Rubia behind.

 

We’ll get the Pensient back from the Pope afterwards!

 

Tilkis

Yeah…

 

Even if we do hand over the Pensient, all we have to do is stop the Life Magic from being cast.

 

We’ll stick with you as long as you’re up to it.

 

Arria

I’m concerned over Lukius’ face…

 

He looked too much like Caius…

 

Forest

Caius, do you have any idea about it?

 

Caius

I heard nothing about it. What in Areulla could he have to do with me…

 

Tilkis

It is of a concern but we should think about rescuing Rubia first.

 

Lets go, Caius.

 

Caius

Right. Lets go save Rubia!

 

l  Time to head to the eastern gate! Make your way there and the party will stop to camp.

 

Caius

Tilkis, you have something to say…?

 

At the camp fire.

 

Rubia…

 

Tilkis

What are you doing here all alone? You should rest.

 

Caius

I know but…

 

Tilkis

You’re worried about Rubia.

 

Caius

No I’m not!

 

…Well OK, I am.

 

I didn’t think I would be this worried about her.

 

Tilkis

Both of you have been together for a long time.

 

That’s why neither of you managed to realise your feelings for each other until you’re separated.

 

Rubia will probably be really missing you just now too.

 

Caius

Really?

 

Tilkis

Yes.

 

Even when she’s talking to me, all she does is talk about you.

 

That’s how much she likes you.

 

And that’s why you have to save her quick. I’m sure you can do it.

 

Caius

…Thanks, Tilkis.

 

Tilkis

Rubia’s like a little sister to me. We’ll get her out no matter what happens!

 

Caius

Yeah…!

 

l  Continue to the eastern gate ready to fight Rommy.

 

Lukius

You’ve brought the Pensient with you?

 

Caius

Yeah. I have it right here.

 

Now give us back Rubia as you promised!

 

Lukius

The Pensient first.

 

Come alone up this slope.

 

Caius walks up and hands the Pensient to Rommy.

 

Rommy

What a fine Pensient. Thanks.

 

Uhuhu.

 

I wonder how many Lycanth’s lives it took to make this.

 

Caius

Why you!

 

Right! I’ve handed over the Pensient!

 

Let Rubia go!

 

Rubia

Caius… I… I can’t go with you…

 

Caius

What are you saying, Rubia?!

 

Rubia

I don’t know what to believe in anymore…

 

That’s why I can’t go with you…

 

Caius

Rubia…

 

You! What did you do to Rubia!

 

Rommy walks back.

 

Rommy

We didn’t do anything to her. She understands the truth, that’s all.

 

She knows how terrifying Lycanths can be.

 

She’s finally realised it.

 

Yes! She knows how terrifying YOU can be!

 

She’s finally realised the Lycanth in you.

 

Caius

…Me?

 

Me?

 

Lukius

I’m sorry but she herself says she doesn’t want to go.

 

Thank you for the Pensient.

 

You all can go wherever you like now.

 

Caius

Rubia ended up like this because I’m a Leymon…!

 

Rubia! Was I the one wrong?

 

It is because I’m a Leymon?!

 

Rubia

…Sorry, Caius. I… I…

 

Caius

…It’s OK.

 

If that’s what you think then, it’s OK…

 

The Pensient resonates.

 

Lukius

It’s glowing? What’s happening?

 

That pendant of yours is a Pensient too!

 

Caius

Damn! They’re resonating!

 

Lukius

Hand over that Pensient too!

 

Caius

No! This is a memento of my mum!

 

I won’t hand it to you!

 

Lukius

Mum…

 

Rommy

You don’t listen do you, Lycanth! Do you not care about what happens to this girl?!

 

Rubia

You said you would let them all go if you got that Pensient!

 

Did you lie to us?

 

Rommy

I never heard anything about you possessing two!

 

Rubia

You liar!

 

Run everyone!

 

Rommy

Shut up, you little girl!

 

Once I get that other Pensient from them…

 

We’ll be able to resurrect your mother and father too so be a good girl and stay there!

 

Rubia

So you really did kill my mother and father!

 

Rommy

You’re as thick as your parents.

 

Rubia

How- How dare you… You lied to meeee!

 

Rubia charges towards Rommy but Lukius stops her.

 

Lukius

Wait!

 

You can’t beat her alone. Don’t waste away your life…!

 

Caius

Lukius! Get away from Rubia!

 

Rommy

You should worry more about yourself.

 

Now hand over that Pensient!

 

Lukius

Stop, Rommy! Caius is my-!

 

l  After defeating Rommy.

 

Caius

*Panting*

 

Rommy

You will not… Once the gate opens…

 

…Ugh!

 

Rommy disappears.

 

Lukius

…Impressive how you managed to make Rommy fight so hard.

 

Caius, you have such power. Why don’t you join us?

 

Once I speak to our Pope, you’ll be able to join.

 

Caius

What are you saying!

 

We’ll never be friends with the ones that killed our parents!

 

Rubia

Yeah! Even if it was just a mistake, we’ll never join you!

 

Lukius

Even if you see this?

 

Lukius removes his mask.

 

Rubia

You… look exactly like Caius! What’s going on?!

 

Caius

What are you? What do you have to do with me?

 

Lukius

I’m your younger brother, Caius.

 

Caius

No- No…

 

Do you really expect me to believe something so sudden!

 

Lukius

You’ve been together with mother while I’ve been together with father.

 

That’s why we haven’t been able to see each other.

 

Caius

Lies… You’re lying, right…?

 

Lukius

I’m sure you know that I’m not lying.

 

Rubia

I can’t believe Lukius is Caius’ brother…

 

He did say, “I’m Caius’ shadow” but…

 

Forest

I can’t believe he’s been hiding such a secret…

 

Lukius

I’ll say this again. Join us, Caius.

 

If we stop hunting Lycanths, humans won’t stop persecuting them.

 

So the only way to save Lycanths is to use Life Magic.

 

Caius

Don’t make me say it again! I won’t believe you!

 

If you’re really my brother, you should stop doing such a foolish thing!

 

You’re a Leymon too!

 

Lukius

…Looks like the paths we have taken are different after all.

 

It’s a shame that you didn’t come to understand…

 

Lukius disappears.

 

Caius

Wait! Don’t run away!

 

Damn it!

 

…Wait, Rubia!

 

Caius turns back round to Rubia.

 

Tilkis

Are you alright?

 

Rubia

…I’m alright.

 

Caius

Thank goodness. I’m glad you’re safe.

 

Arria

Rubia. You shouldn’t push yourself too hard like that.

 

Forest

Caius was really worried about you. He was the most worried out of all of us.

 

Caius

Mr- Mr Forest! You don’t have to say that much!

 

Rubia

…I’m sorry I made you all worry about me.

 

…Thank you, Caius. I was confused…

 

Caius

I- I wasn’t really…

 

Protecting such a shrew like you has always been my job.

 

Rubia

Excuse me for being a shrew. But I think I’m much better than you.

 

Caius

What! I’m always thinking about my actions carefully.

 

Rubia

You never think of anything decent!

 

Tilkis

Come on now. You two are going to argue right after a rescue operation?

 

You two get along so well.

 

Rubia

Onii-sama! Stop teasing me!

 

But more importantly, I heard what they said.

 

They said that they need lots of Pensients.

 

Caius

We’ve managed to keep my pendant from them for now but, they’re still planning to cast the Life Magic.

 

…What is Lukius thinking.

 

Tilkis

Yeah. I don’t think there will be an end to the Spot incidents.

 

Arria

So they’re going to resurrect lives with the Life Magic… Will that really save this world?

 

Tilkis

Save this world? That’s foolish… Just look at the world now.

 

Everyone will be attacked by Spots and die before it’s saved.

 

Arria

I’m concerned about this Life Magic.

 

Why is the Pope trying to use the Leymon’s secret arts now…

 

Forest

…There’s one way to find out the answer.

 

I wasn’t trying to hide it but, my hometown is to the north of here.

 

Arria

To the north of here…? You mean Algam?

 

Forest

Yes. There is a village within the forest there.

 

The village’s name is Sansa.

 

The 8 Leymon who travelled to the capital 14 years ago were also born there.

 

Caius

Sansa…

 

Forest

Sansa is in the forest north of here. It is a extremely cold land where the ogres loiter.

 

That’s why none of the Church members or the knights have managed to go in there.

 

Tilkis

Which means there maybe someone there who may still know about the Life Magic.

 

Caius

Is it… Is it really alright if we don’t go stop the Pope?

 

And Lukius too…

 

Forest

I understand how worried you are about Lukius.

 

He’s your Leymon brother after all.

 

But why then does he still capture the Leymon and make them suffer?

 

Why is he going so far to help the Pope to use the Life Magic?

 

We should go to Sansa to find out.

 

Tilkis

I agree with Forest.

 

What is the Life Magic? If we find out what it is, we may know a way to stop it too.

 

Well, Caius?

 

Caius

…I understand.

 

Lets try going to Mr. Forest’s hometown!

 

Forest

…Well, lets go.

 

Everyone walks off but Arria stands still. Tilkis pauses.

 

Arria

Mr. Forest seems not too pleased even though he’s returning to the hometown he was born in.

 

Tilkis

He… He’s a man that abandoned his hometown once.

 

Arria

Abandoned?

 

Tilkis

After surviving the Janna incident, he fled to Senshivia.

 

I heard there were other survivors but, he didn’t have the time to care about them when he fled.

 

Even now, he thinks he killed his own comrades.

 

That’s why he came back to Areulla, to setlle it once and for all.

 

To him, the Janna incident is still happening.

 

Arria

…It must be a painful journey for him.

 

Tilkis

Yes…

 

Forest earns a new title, “The Man who Abandoned his Hometown”!

 

l  Make your way to the north point and there will be an event midway.

 

Caius

Hmm? What’s wrong Rubia…?

 

Rubia

The Leymon are terrorifying monsters…

 

Lukius called himself that even though he was one himself.

 

What is going on?

 

To me, Caius is my childhood friend and Mr. Forest is a very precious friend…

 

What should I believe in…

 

Caius

Rubia, what are you doing out here alone? It’s dangerous.

 

Rubia

…Caius.

 

Caius

What’s wrong?

 

You don’t look good when you’re being troubled by things.

 

Rubia

How rude!

 

Even I have one or two things that trouble me!

 

Caius

Did Lukius say something to you?

 

Rubia

…Yeah.

 

Caius

He’s been lost all this time…

 

Rubia

…Hey, Caius. Could I ask you something?

 

What do you think of yourself now that you know you’re a Leymon?

 

Caius walks away a bit.

 

Caius

To be honest, I couldn’t believe it. I wondered to myself why I was one.

 

But at the same time, somewhere in my heart I was glad.

 

Rubia

Why?

 

Caius

Because I thought to myself that I had a link to the father that brought me up at least.

 

Dad always said this to me.

 

No matter how tough it gets, never turn away and face it.

 

You must never turn away from reality.

 

It’s important that you accept your fate and live.

 

Rubia

Accept your faith…

 

Caius

Even though I’m a Leymon, it doesn’t change the fact that I’m Caius Qualls.

 

I will continue to exist as me.

 

I wanted to tell my dad that I was proud to be a Leymon.

 

Mr. Forest also said the same thing to me.

 

It’s true that when humans see us tranforming into beasts, they become scared.

 

But Rubia. It doesn’t change the fact that I’m me.

 

I want you to understand that at least.

 

Rubia

Yeah, I understand. I understand what you want to say.

 

Caius

I’ve been thinking.

 

I want Lukius to come to understand that too.

 

It’s a sad thing for him to hate the Leymon blood inside him.

 

I want Lukius to know that I’m proud of being a Leymon.

 

Rubia

Caius, you’ve gotten pretty cool somehow…

 

Caius

What do you me “pretty cool”!

 

I’ve been really cool since a long time ago. You just didn’t realise it.

 

Rubia

Heehee… Really now.

 

Who was the one that cried when he got locked up in the shed?

 

Caius

That was when I was still a kid!

 

And it was you who was locked up!

 

Rubia

So it was… We’ve been together all this time since we were young.

 

Even then I…

 

…I’m sorry, Caius.

 

Caius

Don’t worry about it, Rubia.

 

Besides, what’s gotten over you apologising to me like that!

 

It doesn’t feel right.

 

Rubia

What!

 

Caius

Come on, we should be getting back. We have to get to Sansa quick.

 

Caius walks on ahead out of earshot.

 

Rubia

Thank you, Caius…

 

You’re right.

 

Even if you’re a Leymon, the Caius I know will never change.

 

Even if humans are afraid of Lycanths, I will believe in my friends.

 

Just like my father believes in Caius’ father.

 

Caius earns a new title, “Pretty Cool Guy”!

 

Rubia earns a new title, “An Honest Heart”!

 

l  Go into Algam Forest then make your way through for an event where you’ll find an ogre boss.

 

Algam Forest

 

Arria

Wiat everyone! There’s an ogre here!

 

Tilkis

...There’s something different about this one.

 

Forest

Yes… He maybe the leader of them all.

 

Rubia

But we’ll have to defeat him if we’re to continue beyond here.

 

Caius

He’s an ancestor of humans and Leymon. Shouldn’t he understand if we just talk to him?

 

Forest

Unfortunately, orgres are famous for doing terrible things to others if they’re not their comrades.

 

The ogre realises they’re behind him.

 

Tilkis

Damn, he found us!

 

l  After defeating him, enter the next area into Sansa.

 

Sansa

 

Caius

It feels awfully quiet around here. Is anyone around?

 

Tilkis

No, they’re around.

 

If no one was living here then the houses would be all worn down.

 

Forest, is this Sansa?

 

Forest

Yes, Prince Highness. It hasn’t changed a bit from long ago…

 

Tilkis

I don’t see anyone but I can feel their presence. Lets have a look around.

 

Rubia

I’m kind of scared. I feel as if ghosts are watching us…

 

Arria

The residents of this village are very cautious…

 

A boy runs up to the party.

 

Boy

Who are you! What are you doing here!

 

Tilkis

We’re not bad people. We’re just travellers.

 

Boy

Where did you come from? Adelhabith?

 

Forest

We came across from the desert.

 

We are travelling for a very important purpose.

 

Boy

You’re… You’re a Leymon?

 

What is a Leymon doing with humans?

 

Forest

How did you know I was a Leymon?

 

Boy

I can tell by that smell.

 

This is a village of Leymons who were forced away by humans.

 

We can’t let you get away now that you know about us!

 

Three other Leymons appear to surround the party.

 

Tilkis

Wait! I have a favour to ask!

 

Let me see your village chief please!

 

I have something very important to discuss with him!

 

Villager 2

We can’t trust humans!

 

Forest

Then trust me, I’m one of you!

 

Caius

Please! There’s something that we must know!

 

Boy

You’re… You’re odd.

 

You smell of Leymon and of humans.

 

Villager 1

…I understand. I’ll let you see the chief.

 

But if you try anything, we’re not going to let it pass even if you are one of us.

 

Got that?

 

Forest

We understand.

 

Thank you for listening to us.

 

Villager 1

This way. Follow me.

 

The party follows the man and an older looking man comes out of a house.

 

Chief

I am the chief of this village. What is it that you must ask me…

 

Tilkis

We’re actually in search of a Pensient that was made during the Weremen Battle.

 

We want to know about the Life Magic.

 

Chief

You pursuitors from Areulla!

 

Caius

No wait!

 

We only want to know because the Pope is after it.

 

If the Pensient gets handed over to him then this world will be in big trouble.

 

He’s experimenting to try and revive somethng called the “Life Magic”.

 

Arria

Capturing Leymon was also for finding out where the Pensient is.

 

Chief

Oh, what foolishness. Is history going to repeat itself?

 

So Areulla and the Leymon are going to end up on the same path…

 

Rubia

Please tell us. What is the Life Magic?

 

Chief

100 years ago, the Leymon was wiped out.

 

Even their secrets were lost with them.

 

All documents, records and memories are all under the sand now…

 

But it’s said that it was the Life Magic that caused the Weremen Battle…

 

Tilkis

What do you mean?

 

Isn’t the Life Magic used to bring back life?

 

Chief

Ah yes, it’s true that’s what they say.

 

But I also heard that Life Magic is also called Summon Magic.

 

Arria

…Summon?

 

Chief

Even though I’m an old man, I’m not very familiar about the war that took place 100 years ago.

 

But this is what I heard.

 

Once, the Leymon were a prospering race.

 

However, because of this increasing prosperity, the Leymon fought one another and they were wiped out.

 

The Prime Minister Couber was distressed about what was happening and so, he tried to save this world by using a method he heard from a traveller.

 

But it was because of that, sand and stone began to spread and cover the land.

 

And what remained were the Leymon’s tears of blood.

 

That was all.

 

…I wish I could forget about the war that took place 100 years ago quickly.

 

It was a terrible, painful event.

 

Arria

The Prime Minister of the Leymon, Couber…

 

Caius

Lukius mentioned him too.

 

He said that Couber created the Pensient to use Priseputh…

 

Arria

But the story’s different now.

 

He said Couber tried to save the world using a method that he was taught by from a traveller.

 

But it failed and only tears of blood remains. In other words, the Pensient... That’s what the Chief said.

 

Caius

Nothing about the Light Magic huh.

 

Chief

Couber only managed to learn about the Life Magic because of the traveller.

 

Tilkis

So he learned the magic from a traveller… and tried to use it to save this world?

 

Then it’s just the same as what the Pope is doing now.

 

Arria

What in Areulla could this Life Magic be…?

 

Chief

I sure no one really knows the details about it.

 

Maybe the humans heard about it from somewhere else…

 

Tilkis

The mystery’s just getting deeper. Lets just rest for a while.

 

Rubia

Yes, we should…

 

Forest

I’m sorry but I want to speak with the Chief alone…

 

Tilkis

…We understand. We’ll go away for a moment.

 

The party walks off leaving Forest behind.

 

Chief

…I haven’t seen you for a long time. You’ve grown really big.

 

Forest

…It’s been a long time, Chief.

 

I’m sorry…

 

Chief

You left the village and never came back.

 

But now that you’re alive, it’s all that matters.

 

Forest

…I didn’t return for 14 years.

 

Even though I knew my people were being hunted down!

 

I still didn’t come back!!

 

Chief

It’s been 14 years. Forget about it.

 

Those that survived from that time are still alive just like you.

 

Forest

There were other survivors besides me?!

 

Chief

You didn’t know?

 

He was wounded but, Torth is survived.

 

Forest

Torth is alive?!

 

Chief

You were both the same age and got along really well.

 

Forest

Where is he now?!

 

Chief

He hates humans.

 

Ever since he came back alive from Janna, all he has been thinking about is how to destroy them.

 

He’s been training himself and gathering the young who agrees with him to train them.

 

And now he’s going to start a battle.

 

They’re travelling from Laurus to Janna to burn down the town.

 

Forest

What?!

 

Chief

But even though we Leymon are strong, 10 of them won’t be able to match the humans.

 

Forest

I was sure… he would have realised that 14 years ago back in Janna…

 

Chief

That time, you all went to Janna in an attempt to bring peace.

 

Even though you were young, you couldn't stand up against the humans.

 

During those 14 years, Torth has been regretting how he couldn’t stand up against them.

 

He regrests how his friends and many of his own people died because he couldn’t fight back.

 

Forest

No… He’s got it all wrong!

 

Chief

Yes, you can say that now.

 

It’s because you can say that that you’re back here, yes?

 

Forest

…Yes, Chief.

 

During those 14 years, I couldn’t stop myself hating the humans who lived in Janna.

 

But when I began to stop thinking like that, I had resolved my problem…

 

That’s what I felt.

 

Chief

Forest, you’re not wrong to do that.

 

But I can’t say that what Torth is doing is wrong either.

 

He is in pain. He has seen too much blood from his own people.

 

Forest

But if this continues, there be many more pointless deaths!

 

The gap between humans and Leymon will widen!

 

I have to stop him!

 

Chief

…I can’t do it.

 

I too am regretting how I couldn’t stand up to the humans…

 

The chief walks back inside. Forest walks to his friends.

 

Forest

Everyone, I have a favour to ask!

 

Caius

What’s wrong, Mr Forest?

 

Forest

Torth… my old friend… he’s going to attack Janna.

 

Tilkis

What?!

 

Forest

He has a few young Leymon with him and they’re gathering in Laurus.

 

They’re going to sail to Janna by boat then burn down the town!

 

Rubia

Oh no!!

 

Tilkis

With only the 10 of them, they’ll get killed by the knights.

 

I know they’re Leymon so they won’t be taken down that easily but…

 

This will cause a great uproar in Janna.

 

Rubia

We have to stop them!

 

The Leymon and humans shouldn’t fight!

 

Arria who was away from the party earlier runs up.

 

Arria

What’s wrong?

 

Caius

We’ve got trouble!

 

Mr Forest’s old friend is going to attack Janna!

 

Arria

What?!

 

Forest

Please. Please help me out.

 

I have to stop them no matter what.

 

Tilkis

Forest, I’ve never seen you like this…

 

Right! Lets help him!

 

Caius

Of course! We will stop them!

 

Rubia

Lets hurry to Laurus!

 

Arria

Laurus should be to the south of here.

 

We need to exit to Leymon Desert and go southwest.

 

Forest

Thank you… everyone.

 

l  Time to pack up again! Once ready, head on out of Algam Forest then back to the Laurus by the coast.

 

Laurus

 

Tilkis

Are they the ones, Forest?

 

Forest

Torth!

 

Torth

Forest? Is it really you?!

 

Forest, you’re alive.

 

Forest

Yeah, I managed to escape from Janna and hide in Senshivia to the west.

 

Torth

Senshivia… So you ran off somewhere far again.

 

After that incident, I ran for my life all the way back to Sansa.

 

I’ve managed to survive until now.

 

I thank the Leymon God for our reunion here.

 

Forest

Yes.

 

The Chief in Sansa told me you were safe.

 

It’s been 14 years since that time…

 

Torth

By the way, who are those humans?

 

Forest

I’m travelling together with them for a certain reason.

 

Don’t worry, they’re friends. You can trust them.

 

Torth

I don’t know. Humans are natural liars.

 

Forest

Torth…

 

Torth

Alright, if you say that then I’ll believe in them.

 

Forest

I came here because I have something to speak to you about.

 

I heard from the Chief what you’re going to do. Don’t attack Janna.

 

Torth

What are you saying, Forest?!

 

Forest

I’m not saying it’s a bad thing but you should stop fighting with the humans and hurting each other.

 

Torth

Forest, how can you still continue saying that…

 

Have you forgotten what happened 14 years ago?

 

What happened when we went to them to try and negotiate peace?

 

They killed our comrades!

 

You saw it too, didn’t you?

 

We were young. We believed in our ideals.

 

We ran out there so that we could build up a way in which we could live without having to fight with humans.

 

But…

 

That can’t happen, Forest!

 

Don’t you realise that when you’ve already lost your own comrades!

 

Forest

Torth. I thought so too back then.

 

But now, I think differently.

 

I’m getting along with humans fine. We have to stop fighting each other.

 

Torth

You’re too naïve, Forest.

 

Humans are different from us. One or two of them maybe kind.

 

But when tens of them gather, they will go out of control!

 

They’re killing us Leymon as if we’re beasts!

 

Forest

 

I won’t listen to you this time. I will do this.

 

If you’re going to get in my way, I won’t treat you any differently than them.

 

Forest

Torth, wait.

 

Leave things to me and wait here.

 

Torth

What?

 

Forest

I’ll go to Janna again and there I will settle things.

 

Once the Church stops their heretic hunting, there should be no problem.

 

Torth

Do you expect me to believe that!

 

Forest

If I have to, I will defeat the Pope.

 

I have resources to stop this heretic hunting.

 

I will convince the humans.

 

Torth

Forest… If you’re really that confident then prove to me your power!

 

I’m going to test to see…

 

If you’re going to convince the humans or defeat the Pope!

 

Forest

…Very well.

 

l  After the short fight with Forest.

 

Torth

Forest… I see your fangs haven’t worn out at all.

 

So you still seek peace with the humans even though you continue to yield those fangs…

 

Forest

Yes. My friends taught me this way of living.

 

Torth

I see… Then I will wait for you here and believe in you.

 

But if you fail, we will attack Janna.

 

Don’t forget that.

 

Torth walks off.

 

Forest

Thank you, Torth…

 

Tilkis

So we’re going to sneak into Janna?

 

Forest

Sorry…

 

Tilkis

We were going to have to that sooner or later. Don’t worry about it.

 

Rubia

If we can stop the Life Magic then we can stop the heretic hunting too!

 

Caius

Yeah! We’ll stop both Lukius and the Pope!

 

Tilkis

Alright! Lets go to the inn and come up with a plan!

 

Arria

Su- Sure…

 

l  So go to the inn and pay to rest. An event will take place that night.

 

Arria sneaks out of the inn and Tilkis sees her.

 

Tilkis

Arria… Where could she be going at this time of night?

 

Don’t tell me she’s…

 

Tilkis follows on after Arria.

 

Outside in the desert…

 

Arria

Albert… you’re here, right? It’s me, Arria.

 

Albert comes out.

 

Albert

What’s the situation?

 

Is there a Pensient in Laurus?

 

Arria

No, there’s no Pensient there.

 

Albert

I see. And what of the Lycanth’s rebellion?

 

Arria

We’ve changed their mind. They won’t attack Janna.

 

Albert

Well then, shall we finish off the remaining Lycanths in Laurus?

 

I’ve let them free until now but, I will have to kill off Caius’ party too.

 

Arria

What are you saying, Albert?!

 

Albert

Is something wrong, Arria?

 

Three are lots of Lycanths in theat village including those you have been travelling with.

 

Killing them means I will get a hold of their Pensient too.

 

Then I will obtain power and I will be the best captain of the knights there is forever.

 

Arria

They have committed no crime! Why are you doing this!

 

Albert

I wouldn’t have mind letting them go free until I actually had to deal with the Pope but the situation has changed.

 

The Imperial Guards are after the Pensient too.

 

I must guarantee the Pensient will be mine before it gets into the King’s hands.

 

Arria

Even if you do, you don’t have to kill them!

 

Albert

What are you saying. The very existence of Lycanths is a crime in itself.

 

Arria

No! You’re wrong!

 

Albert… Please wake up!

 

Please return to the kind Albert you once were long ago. Please!

 

When you were a child, you were kinder and gentle than everyone else.

 

Albert

No, Arria. Long ago, I was just a coward.

 

A weakling shaked, afraid of those who possessed power.

 

But I’m different now.

 

I understand. With power, I can go on without being afraid.

 

Not long now, Arria.

 

Once I’ve killed the Lycanths, it will be the Pope’s turn!

 

He should be excuted for summoning those Spots.

 

Once that’s done, the throne will be mine. I will be king.

 

And I will make you queen. Or do you wish to be a female pope… You can choose.

 

Arria

Albert…

 

You’re no longer the Albert I knew…

 

Albert

Arria, don’t forget.

 

Don’t forget the time when we had to hide in the Northern Lands because we were afraid of the ogres.

 

We will assault Laurus once it’s dawn. Your role is over.

 

Leave Laurus now.

 

I can’t have my spy killed too after all.

 

Tilkis

Arria…

 

So you really were the one leaking information about us…

 

Arria

…Tilkis! How long have you been standing there?

 

Tilkis

From the start of that conversation.

 

You were acting strange so I followed after you.

 

Arria

…I’m sorry.

 

I’ve been reporting information about everyone for the sake of my childhood friend Albert…

 

Albert told me told me to befriend Caius and Rubia in Janna…

 

It was my fault that the Black Knights managed to trace us…

 

…I know that apologising won’t make you forgive me.

 

But… I’m really sorry.

 

So you’re going to leave us and run away? You’re just going to continue obeying his orders?

 

Arria

…No.

 

I don’t plan to listen to Albert anymore.

 

I will explain to everyone about this. I want to fight together with you all one more time.

 

Tilkis

Even if it means… betraying your childhood friend?

 

Arria

Yes.

 

Albert is no longer the same person I knew.

 

And while I was watching Caius all this time, I thought to myself…

 

That I want to save Albert and fight against my fate.

 

I have never faced my fate until now.

 

I thought I couldn’t.

 

But my thinking was wrong.

 

As long as you have strong feelings to protect someone, something… You won’t lose to fate.

 

I will fight against my fate so that I can protect my precious friends.

 

Tilkis

I understand.

 

If you’ve reflected on you’ve done that much then I believe in you.

 

Arria

…Thank you, Tilkis.

 

I’m glad I met you…

 

The next morning.

 

Tilkis

Everyone, Arria has something important to say.

 

Caius

What is it?

 

Rubia

Did something happen, Arria?

 

Arria

…The Black Knights are going to assault this place.

 

They’re after us and Torth.

 

Caius

Really?! How do you know?

 

Forest

Arria, don’t tell me you’re…

 

Arria

It’s true. The Black Knights will attack this place.

 

Because it’s me that let Albert know about us being here.

 

Caius

What! Why did you do such a thing!

 

Rubia

I can’t believe this…

 

So you were the Black Knight’s spy all along?

 

Arria

…Yes.

 

Albert managed to pursue us all this time because I’ve been leaking information to him…

 

…I’m truly sorry.

 

Forest

I see.

 

I didn’ t know how they managed to pursue us before. So this is what happened…

 

But why are you revealing all this to us now?

 

Arria

Albert really wants to kill everyone this time.

 

And he will no longer stop at anything, including killing other humans to fulfill his ambitions…

 

I can’t stand it anymore.

 

Rubia

Hmmm…

 

Caius, do you think we can really trust her? What will we do if she’s lying?

 

Tilkis

She isn’t.

 

I was there when she was meeting secretly with Albert.

 

Albert did say he was going to attack at dawn.

 

Rubia

You’re just being blinded because you like Arria, Onii-sama!

 

Tilkis

Ugh…

 

Rubia

We’ve been through all that hardship because of Arria.

 

We can’t trust her so easily!

 

Forest

Rubia’s got reason to say that.

 

But what will we do if they really do attack at dawn?

 

We don’ t have time to evacuate all the villagers.

 

And…

 

I want to avoid letting Torth know anything that will provoke him.

 

Rubia

Ooooh!

 

What is wrong with you all! Why are you all just letting Arria get away with it so easily?

 

Caius

Rubia, stop it!

 

Arria came to let us know about the dangers without running away.

 

If she really wanted to betray us, I’m sure she would have ran off somewhere by now.

 

…I know you understand that too, Rubia right?

 

Tilkis

It’s true that Arria may have betrayed us.

 

But I’m sure she has saved us many times too.

 

Am I wrong?

 

Rubia

What’s with you all! It’s as if I’m the bad one here!

 

I like Arria too!

 

That’s why I’m worried…

 

…Hey, Arria. We can trust you right?

 

Arria

Yes. Rubia… Thank you.

 

I’m sorry, everyone. Please let me fight together with you all.

 

Caius

Of course!

 

Forest

…But it’ll be painful for you.

 

You’ll be betraying Albert after rall.

 

Arria

I’m prepared.

 

Tilkis

Right, lets leave the village and be there to recept the Black Knight’s assault so that Torth doesn’t find out!

 

l  So, sort out your team and exit the village when ready to confront Albert. If you’ve been exploring, you should have picked up a “Stand Firm (スタンドファーム)” accessory which looks like a weight. You might want to equip it on one of your characters because Albert likes to send them flying with his special move.

 

Albert

The rebellions have appeared.

 

Arria… So you’ve betrayed me…

 

Arria

I have decided to fight for the one I believe in.

 

Caius

Retreat with your men now! If you don’t, we’re not going to go easy on you!

 

Albert

Oh? So you’re going to interfere with our plans. Interesting! Lets see you try!

 

Attack!

 

l  After beating the first group of Black Knights.

 

You really do know how to put up a fight…

 

Very well, feel the requiem of my full power!

 

l  After defeating Albert.

 

I… can’t believe I lost…

 

No, I knew I would lose from the very beginning…

 

Arria… How can I be a genius when I can’t even control you alone…

 

Arria

Albert…

 

Albert

Arria…

 

Albert falls to the ground.

 

Caius

He’s a bad guy but, even he feels grief.

 

Forest

He was prepared for this. He saw what lay beyond the path he chose to live.

 

Arria

…Albert was born in a family of knights who were stripped of their status by the King.

 

That’s why he was so desperate to gain power…

 

Tilkis

Burned by the flames of his own ambitions…

 

Arria, can you go on?

 

Arria

…Yes, lets go.

 

Everyone walks on ahead.

 

Farewell, Albert…

 

Arria walks off too leaving Albert’s body behind.

 

Arria earns a new title, “Seperated from the Past”!

 

l  Return into Laurus and then go get another password from the barmaid. You’ll also get a new recipe “Curry Rice” from the groceries shop. Once you’re ready it’s off to Janna. When ready, go speak to the sailor and choose the last option to travel to Janna.

 

Janna

 

Tilkis

What’s going on…? Something’s odd.

 

Where have I had this feeling before…

 

Arria

The sewers. It feels just like the time when we were in the sewers!

 

Caius

You mean the Spots have come out of there?

 

Tilkis

Yeah, it’s possible.

 

The Pope may have tried to cast the Life Magic again using the Pensient he stole from us.

 

Lets hurry to the cathedral!

 

Arria

The Pope should be on the top level of the cathedral!

 

He can only cast the Life Magic there!

 

Caius

Understood! Just you wait, Pope!

 

l  Although the Spots are everywhere, the shops and services are still open so you can go pickup anything you need. Once ready, go to the cathedral where soldiers are battling with the Spots. Inside, you’ll find Lukius who will try to stop you.

 

Caius

Lukius!!

 

Lukius

Caius.

 

I knew you would come. I can’t let you go any further.

 

Caius

We have to stop the Pope.

 

Now please let us through!

 

Don’t help the Pope anymore!

 

Lukius

Quiet!

 

I want to make the Life Magic a success as much as you want to stop it, brother.

 

If you want to go on, you must defeat me first.

 

I will defeat you and give your Pensient to the Pope.

 

Then the Life Magic will surely be successful next time…

 

Caius

You idiot!

 

The fact the number of Spots are increasing means the Life Magic has failed!

 

Haven’t you come to see that!

 

Lukius

Everything has been an experiment up until now!

 

Next time, it will succeed and the Leymon will be resurrected.

 

Caius

You seriously believe that?!

 

Lukius

I do!

 

You don’t understand, brother. No, I don’t expect you to understand.

 

After all, you were brought up in a good environment, brother!

 

Now, lets fight!

 

The Pope needs me!

 

Caius

Damn it! Do we have to fight each other!

 

l  After the fight with Lukius.

 

Lukius

I lost, brother… You can go.

 

Caius

Lukius…

 

Rubia

Why… Why do you brothers have to fight?!

 

Lukius

It can’t be helped. It is our fate…

 

Caius

Why… Why didn’t you tell me you were my brother earlier!

 

Lukius

And I ask you why, brother… Why don’t you understand me…

 

Caius

Lukius…

 

Lukius

I couldn’t… face… the Lycanth blood… flowing in me… like you could… brother…

 

Caius

Don’t talk.

 

Lukius

I… really wanted to… stop the… Lycanth… being hunted…

 

It’s like… I’m being… punished…

 

But the Pope… he really wants to… revive… the Lycanth and… everyone else…

 

Caius

I told you to stop talking! Stop now!

 

Lukius

Brother… it’s… up to… you now…

 

Stop… the Pope… from… resurrecting… us…

 

Lukius dies and the others run to him.

 

Caius

Hang on! Hang on, Lukius!

 

Lukiuuuuuus!

 

Rubia

Caius…

 

Caius

Why… Why didn’t tell me sooner…

 

Forest

…Caius, why don’t you stay here? We’ll go defeat the Pope.

 

Caius

…No, I’ll go. I’m going to stop the Pope…!

 

Lukius wants me to do that!

 

l  Now continue up the cathedral to face the Pope for another boss battle. It’s quite a tough one and there’s two ways you can win. First, if you choose to be melee, concentrate on the Pope and don’t bother with the Spots. They just get revived once you kill them. Dish out everything you have at him until he’s dead and be sure not to leave him alone or his magic can seriously hurt your party! The second way is to control a healer such as Arria or Rubia and let the two other AI players take care of the Pope while you do the healing.

 

Rubia

Who could that statue be? She’s so beautiful.

 

Tilkis

Caius… What’s wrong?

 

Caius

That statue… I feel as if I’ve seen her before somewhere.

 

As Caius walks up to the statue, his pendant resonates.

 

???

Don’t go near that statue or you will die.

 

A man appears behind them.

 

Caius

So you’re the Pope…?

 

Pope

What happened to Lukius?

 

Don’t tell me he got defeated by you lot. What a useless little brat…

 

Caius

What!

 

Lukius was loyal to you, risking his very life!

 

How can you say that!

 

We won’t let you carry on with Life Magic!

 

Pope

Fools… You dare to challenge me?

 

But don’t worry.

 

Even if you do die, you will be resurrected with Life Magic!

 

l  After the tough battle.

 

Arria

Pope!

 

Pope

Why… What am I doing here…?

 

Yes… where is… Lukius…?

 

Caius

What’s going on? It’s as if you’re a completely different person…

 

Pope

Ah, Lukius, there you are.

 

Listen to me. Today will be the day Melissa gets resurrected…

 

A day when all the other Leymon will be resurrected too…

 

Caius

Melissa, the name dad mentioned… What’s going on…?

 

Pope

You should be happy. The Leymon will be revived…

 

Ugh… What’s wrong?

 

I can’t move…

 

Tilkis

I see…

 

Pope, you’ve returned to your normal self.

 

Pope

Wha- What are you talking about?

 

Tilkis

Failing the Life Magic, you lost conciousness…

 

And your body became a nest for the Spots.

 

Do you remember anything?

 

Pope

I remember… I remember everything…

 

The King summoned me and… What… What have I done!

 

How could I be so foolish…!!

 

I’m sorry…

 

No matter how much I apologise, I know I can not atone for my sins…

 

Arria

Pope…

 

Pope

I… I couldn’t endure the sorrow of losing my wife…!

 

So I tried to bring her back once more to this world…

 

I didn’t realise she was a fake…

 

I should have listened to Couber’s warning…

 

Tilkis

Couber?

 

Isn’t he the Prime Minister during the time of the Weremen Battle?!

 

Arria

Wh- Why would someone from 100 years ago still be alive?

 

Pope

Couber is still alive…

 

Forest

Alive? Is it true?

 

Pope

Yes, he is alive...

 

Caius

That can’t be…

 

Pope

You… If you’re not Lukius then… You… must be Caius…?

 

So you’re… alive…

 

Caius

How do you know about me?!

 

Pope

I don’t have… much strength left in me… to talk…

 

Listen closely…  Young one… You who were… born from a Leymon and a human…

 

As long as… you and Lukius… are here… The King…

 

Caius

Hang in there!

 

What are you trying to say about me and Lukius? What about the King?!

 

Rommy appears.

 

Rommy

Oh, so they defeated you, Pope.

 

What a worthless old man.

 

But I don’t have much time either. I’m here to retrieve the giant Pensient from you.

 

Caius

You! You’re still not dead!!

 

Rommy

It’s not going to be the same this time.

 

With my hometown getting close, I am growing stronger.

 

Let me give you a quick death!

 

The Pope gets burned by Rommy’s attack.

 

Pope

Guargh!!

 

Caius

?!

 

Pope

Caius… Go see Couber… He… knows… everything…

 

Go… Go to the furthest northern point… to Adelhabith…

 

Caius

Hang in there!

 

You can’t die! You’re my-

 

Pope

I’ve… committed… too many… sins…

 

I must… receive… my… punishment…

 

Farewell… Caius…

 

Caius

Why… Why do you have to die…!

 

Rommy

This is a wonderfully pure Pensient. With this, we will surely succeed this time…

 

Rubia

Hey! She’s taken the Pensient with her!

 

Rommy leaves with the guards.

 

Tilkis

Rubia, don’t go after them! She’s too dangerous just now!

 

…And there’s something odd about the air.

 

Forest

Isn’t the Pope’s body a nest for the Spots now?

 

So why is the presence of the Spots still growing so strong?

 

Arria

The number of Spots is increasing for a different reason!

 

Tilkis

Caius, we have to get outside!

 

I know it’s cruel but grieve after all this is over!

 

Hurry!

 

Caius

…Right, lets go!

 

The party rushes out with Caius lingering a little longer before running out too.

 

Pope

Melissa… we can… finally be… alone together…

 

Caius and Lukius will...

 

l  Hurry on down the passage back to the room with the save point.

 

Arria

What’s going on? Lukius’ body is…

 

Tilkis

Gone… Was it eaten by the Spots?

 

Forest

No, Spots attack humans but they don’t eat them.

 

Rubia

Then does that mean he’s alive?! That’s great, Caius!

 

Caius

He’s alive!

 

…But if he really is, where could he have gone…

 

What is he thinking…?

 

l  Save, heal up then head on out of the cathedral ready to fight some Spots.

 

Caius

What, what the! There’s so many of them!

 

Rubia

The spots are attacking the town… we have to do something!

 

Forest

Looks like we’ll just have to do whatever we can.

 

Arria

Yes. Even if it’s only a few we can save, lets help the people!

 

The party charges forward.

 

l  After the fight.

 

Tilkis

Damn, there’s too many of them! We’ll never be able to finsih them with just the few of us…

 

???

Forest! You alright?

 

Torth arrives at the scene.

 

Forest

Torth! And who are the other Leymon you’re with…?

 

Torth

Your friends and the ones you rescued before.

 

Caius

Really?! So everyone’s alright!

 

Forest

I see. Thank goodness…

 

Torth

Forest, it’s not time to relax.This town is filled with Spots!

 

Forest

We done it! We’ve defeated the Pope as promised!

 

Torth

Yeah! I heard that from the soldiers that gave up earlier.

 

That’s why we’ve decided not to assault Janna!

 

Forest

Then why are you here?

 

Torth

So that they can’t blame this attack on us!

 

We can’t just let the Church get away with summoning these Spots and then leaving us to carry their sin.

 

So we came here to clear out the Spots when we heard the news.

 

Forest

Torth. We still have something we have to do.

 

Could we leave this place to you?

 

Torth

Leave it to us.

 

We’ll clear out the Spots here.

 

Boy

We’re paying back what we owe you in Laurus!

 

Boy runs off to fight a Spot.

 

Torth

We saw Spots outside town too. Be careful!

 

Torth runs off too.

 

Caius

Thank you… all of you!

 

Tilkis

Caius, lets leave this place to them and go after Rommy.

 

Arria

Wait!

 

I’m worried about what the Pope’s last words were.

 

Forest

You mean about going to see Couber in Adelhabith…?

 

Tilkis

It’s not possible. The Pope’s memories are messed up.

 

How can a Leymon Prime Minister from 100 years ago still be alive?

 

If he was, he would be at an really old age.

 

Arria

But…

 

But what if the Pope did meet Couber?

 

It would be dangerous to go after Rommy then.

 

Tilkis

Hmm…

 

Maybe we should avoid Rommy then…

 

Caius, I’ll leave the decision to you.

 

Since you seem to have a certain link with the Pope.

 

Caius

…Lets go see Couber. I don’t think the Pope would like before his death.

 

Arria

Alright. I’ll lead the way.

 

Tilkis

What do you mean, Arria?

 

Arria

Adelhabith… is the homeland my homeland and Albert’s.

 

And there’s something I remembered.

 

Right before I left, an old priest arrived.

 

Forest

An old man? Was he a priest from the Church?

 

Arria

Yes. He maybe Couber.

 

Tilkis

I see.

 

Rubia

Then lets hurry. I think Rommy’s up to something.

 

Caius

Lets avoid the Spots for now and get out of Janna first!

 

Lets go!

 

l  Before heading out of Janna, enter the grocery shop nearby to get the Pizza recipe from the man. When ready, leave Janna for a mini boss fight with black Spot Benti.

 

Tilkis

Look. Something’s waiting for us out here again~

 

Caius

What should we do? Shall we jump of the bridge like last time?

 

Rubia

What?! You- You’re joking right?

 

Forest

No, there’s already too many Spots in Janna to leave this one alone.

 

We should be able to defeat this one to makes things easier for them.

 

Arria

Alright, lets do it!

 

l  After the short fight.

 

Forest

Now Torth and the others can concentrate on the Spots within Janna only.

 

Arria

Yes. Well, lets hurry to Adelhabith.

 

Tilkis

He- Hey. There’s no need to rush.

 

And where is Adelhabith anyway?

 

Could you explain to us what route we’re taking?

 

Arria

Oh, OK.

 

Adelhabith is to a village to the most northern point of this land.

 

Once we go through Bognam Forest near the northern gate, we go north.

 

Caius

We can’t get there directly by ship?

 

Arria

There’s occasionally a ship that goes there but lately, there’s very few.

 

It’s not a town that produces any eye catching, specialised goods after all…

 

Forest

There’s a way to get there from my hometown of Sansa too.

 

Once you pass through Sansa, continuing west will get us to Adelhabith.

 

But it’s a long way to Sansa.

 

It’s probably best if we went through the northern gate.

 

Arria

Oh, yes.

 

The land to the north is full of nothing but snow.

 

It’s quite hard to move around there. We should be prepared.

 

Rubia

Ogres and snow…

 

Even though we won’t have the Church or knights after us, we have nature as our enemy this time.

 

Caius

But we have to go see Couber.

 

Lets keep our spirits up and go!

 

l  Once you’re ready (and I would recommend some Holy Bottles if you want to avoid battles), head back into Janna then go to the port. Speak to the sailor there then choose the second last option to travel to Yaska. Go all the way to the north of the map to cross the bridge then continue to the North Gate. Enter Bognam Forest then make your way through to the southern point for an event and a mini boss fight with an ogre.

 

Arria

Be careful! There’s an ogre ahead!

 

Tilkis

Damn, not again!

 

You noticed it pretty fast.

 

Arria

Yes.

 

The ogres often attacked Adelhabith.

 

An ogre approaches.

 

Forest

Prince Tilkis! Looks like there’s no time to talk!

 

The ogre walks forward.

 

Rubia

Do we have to fight it?

 

Forest

It doesn’t look like it’ll listen to us. And we can’t get away now that it’s this close.

 

Caius

Here it comes!

 

Northern Plains

 

l  Once in the snowy plains, go west to reach Adelhabith then speak to the lady near the snowman.

 

Lady

Welcome to Adelhabith.

 

It’s been a long time since guests from the outside came here.

 

Please enjoy your-

 

Oh it’s you, Arria! It’s been such a long time.

 

How is Albert?

 

Arria

It’s been a long time. Albert it… doing fine.

 

Lady

I see, that’s good to hear. So what are you doing back here all of a sudden?

 

Caius

We came here to look for someone. Do you know a man named Couber?

 

Lady
Mr Couber?

 

Maybe you mean the man who lives over there.

 

Many years ago, the priests brought him here.

 

Caius

Thanks, we’ll go see.

 

l  Enter the house to the right of the snowman and speak to the man there for an event.

 

Caius

Hi… There’s something we want ot ask you…

 

Are you Couber?

 

Couber

…Indeed. My name is Couber…

 

But it’s been a long time since I was referred to by that name…

 

Forest

Are you really Couber? It’s already been 100 years since the Weremen Battle.

 

I’m sure Couber would have died of old age.

 

Couber

Hohoho… died huh… Yes, it’s true. I’m no different from a dead corpse.

 

Look at the state of me. Look at this body that’s withering away yet, I can’t die…

 

Arria

Mr Couber, please tell us. What in Areulla happened?

 

Couber

And what are you going to do if you knew? Will you repeat history?

 

Arria

No.

 

I am a member of the Church. The Pope asked us to come see you.

 

Couber

If he told you where I was then that means he must be dead…

 

Very well, what do you want to know?

 

Caius

Life Magic.

 

The Pope was trying to cast Life Magic to save this world.

 

He tried to gather the Pensients he needed by force.

 

But he failed casting it and now monsters known as Spots have been born.

 

Even the Pope’s body was eaten away by their nest.

 

What in Areulla is the Life Magic?

 

Couber

Foolish Leymon. Let me tell you then.

 

Once I was taught the Life Magic by a traveller.

 

Tilkis

The traveller… who was he?

 

Couber

A young human. Now listen until I’ve finished.

 

To carry out Life Magic, one must need great power.

 

And that was why the Pensient was made.

 

Rubia

Life Magic is magic, right?

 

I don’t think magic needs that much power…

 

Couber

If it was some average magic.

 

To understand the reason why, you must have an understanding in the theory behind magic.

 

Magic, also known as Priseputh, are words that control the air.

 

Words that allow the caster to gather the energy in this world to form physically under this command.

 

To do this, the caster must recite the Priseputh words.

 

However.

 

What would happen if this energy grew greater than what the Priseputh commands?

 

Arria

The particles around the caster would freeze.

 

Couber

Yes.

 

All the energy in this world would then gather.

 

And as a result, the air around you… Everything in this world would come to a halt.

 

That is why a crystal that stored thousands of Leymon souls was created so that such a thing would not happen.

 

This crystal was known as the Pensient.

 

Tilkis

Thousands of Leymon were sacrified… Was it really something so serious you had to go that far?

 

Couber

I… had to do it…

 

I had to protect the world even if it meant sacrificing thousands of my people.

 

No, it wasn’t thousands…

 

I sacrificed millions and created a number of Pensients.

 

We needed them to save the world…

 

Forest

Millions… How can this be…

 

But you say you had to protect the world… What from?

 

From the Weremen Battle?

 

Couber

The Weremen Battle? That was all but just a tale.

 

It was all about the Leymon’s cruel ambitions eating into them.

 

So that they took both humans and nature lightly…

 

In the end, their little conflict continued and the great land abandoned them.

 

No one thought that their conflict would reap the land of its fertility.

 

It was then, a traveller visited us.

 

The traveller said…

 

To bring back the good wills in your people and the rich natural environments, Life Magic is the only way.

 

But to cast Life Magic, you need Pensients.

 

Arria

That’s why you sacrificed all those Leymon and created the Pensients…

 

Couber

Yes.

 

If you wish to call me a murderer, do it.

 

But I could think of no other way to save the Leymon at that time.

 

I sacrificed many of my people and created the Pensients.

 

And then I cast the Life Magic as I was told.

 

I expected to bring back the green beauty back to the land and the hearts of my people.

 

I really did…

 

Caius

But what happened?

 

What happened after you cast Life Magic?

 

Couber

A gate.

 

A small pure black gate.

 

I didn’t know what it was.

 

The traveller told me that life would flow out from that gate.

 

But what it did was absorb all the living Leymons.

 

Everything…

 

Everything disappeared within one night.

 

The Leymon disappeared, one of the Pensients disappeared and…

 

The traveller left with the remaining Pensients.

 

Forest

So those ruins… were your doing?

 

The land wasn’t turned into a desert because of the Weremen Battle…?

 

Couber

That’s right.

 

Everything happened because I cast Life Magic.

 

Tilkis

…So that’s what happened.

 

But… why did the traveller teach you Life Magic?

 

What could he gain from it?

 

Couber

…You should go ask him yourselves.

 

Couber

You should go ask him directly.

 

Arria

What do you mean?

 

Couber

It’s nothing odd.

 

The Pensients have the power to prolong life.

 

In exchange for that, the Pensients grow smaller.

 

Even I managed to live 100 years because I hid and possessed a Pensient.

 

Arria

I see…

 

Couber

That’s right.

 

The remaining Pensient were left in the possesion of the Pope.

 

The last shard of it had become small. It must have disappeared in an instant…

 

Caius

So the traveller is staying alive using the power of the Pensients?

 

Couber

He has many more Pensients than I do.

 

The Pope most likely learned of Life Magic from the travller.

 

When he found me hiding here, he already knew about Life Magic.

 

I told him the same story I told you but it was useless.

 

The sorrow he had for his dead wife gave the traveller a chance to convince him.

 

He did try casting Life Magic, didn’t he?

 

But monsters known as Spots appeared.

 

It’s most likely because the Life Magic I cast using the lives of Leymon was incomplete.

 

That’s why the traveller tried to trick the Pope to experiment with Life Magic.

 

It’s very likely that the Life Magic is nearing completion.

 

I don’t know what its true purpose is.

 

Tilkis

So there’s going to be Life Magic that will be in a much more complete form than what the Pope used?

 

What is the traveller planning to do by summoning Spots…

 

Caius

By the way, where is the traveller?

 

Couber

Hohoho! The traveller is the King himself.

 

Caius

What! The King?!

 

Couber

He’s not in Janna is he?

 

That man abandoned Janna because he has plans…

 

Forest

14 years ago, I forced to have an audience with the King…

 

After that, he moved to Mount Are.

 

Couber

Hohoho… So you’ve seen what the King looks like?

 

Forest

No…

 

Couber

Indeed, indeed.

 

I met him when he was only a boy.

 

It’s been 100 years since then. I’m sure he still remains as a little boy.

 

He must have moved to Mount Are because he was afraid someone would find out.

 

Tilkis

So the story about how Areulla the 7th was succeeded by Areulla the 8th a few years ago was a lie?

 

Couber

The King doesn’t show himself.

 

Even though it’s said there is a King, no one has ever seen him.

 

Apart from the Imperial Guards.

 

Rubia

The Imperial Guards!

 

Caius

So the knight that handed me the Pensient…

 

Couber

He may have found out who the King really was and what he was planning…

 

The knight has died, hasn’t he?

 

Caius

…Yeah.

 

Couber

I thought so.

 

The King is strong. No one can defeat him.

 

If it was possible, I would have killed him long ago…!

 

Caius

What does that mean!

 

Are you saying we should just let the King continue using Life Magic as he wishes!

 

Couber

Young man, there are things that won’t come true no matter how much you wish for them.

 

But will you still fight on, knowing that?

 

Caius

Yeah, lots of people were sacrificed. I won’t give up!

 

Coubre

And are you all the same?

 

Rubia

I won’t give up either!

 

Tilkis

Of course.

 

Forest

We an’t let there be anymore sacrifices…!

 

Arria

I don’t want to run away without fighting back anymore.

 

Couber

…Then I shall grant you power, Priseputh that was created to defeat the King.

 

With this, you maybe able to fight against him.

 

Arria

Is there really such a Priseputh? Please, let me know…!

 

Rubia

Please let me know too!

 

Couber

Very well.

 

It is the light of Secret Shine that will wipe out all enemies.

 

A storm that can destroy the world, Tempest.

 

Take them.

 

Rubia learnss Sacred Shine.

 

Arria learns Tempest!

 

Couber

…I am tired.

 

Please let me rest a little…

 

Arria

Please let me ask one more thing.

 

What are you doing in Adelhabith?

 

I heard that a priest brought you here many years ago.

 

Couber

The Pope said he would bring me here in exchange for the Pensient.

 

I gave him it so that it wouldn’t reach the King’s hands.

 

Hohoho… I’m sure he hasn’t realised where I am yet.

 

…Is that all?

 

Caius

Thanks.

 

Tilkis

Now we know where to go, Caius.

 

Caius

Yeah.

 

But how do we get to Mount Are?

 

Arria

I think there’s a route that leads into the mountains in between the Northern and Eastern Gate.

 

It’s being guarded by the Imperial Knights so it won’t be easy to get through.

 

Caius

But if we don’t go, we can’t end this.

 

Lets all go to Mount Are!

 

l  Head out the door and another event will take place.

 

A light shines on Couber.

 

Couber

Now this should compensate for some of my sin.

 

It has been a great burden.

 

I really wanted to save him…

 

That young boy…

 

l  Enter the inn and speak to the old man by the corner for an event.

 

Old Man

Have we met somewhere before?

 

Arria

No…

 

Old Man

I see…

 

I’m sorry, my eyes are growing bad.

 

There are people who live in this village.

 

Ships can’t come here because of the ogres living in the south.

 

This place was really lively long ago.

 

You know, I have a grand daughter who looks just like you…

 

Yes.

 

She went south to go after that young man Albert from the port.

 

They were both very smart kids.

 

But the boy’s parents both died because of an illness.

 

Both parents and the boy were forced out of the city before they came here.

 

That’s why he left again to take revenge.

 

My grand daughter was worried so she went after him. I wonder if she’s doing well right now…

 

All the young people are leaving this place…

 

They don’t like all this snow and they’re scared of the ogres after all.

 

Young lady.

 

It looks like you’re travelling. You should take care of yourself.

 

It must be a very important journey.

 

But be sure to come back here once it’s over…

 

Arria

Yes, I will.

 

…You take care too.

 

l  Leave and Arria’s grand father will say farewell to her. Pick up some Banishing Bottles or items that prevent petrification and stack up on healing items. Once you’ve picked up stuff you need, you have two ways of getting to Mount Are. Either return to Yaska by ship then make your way north again or, go back the way you came through Bognam Forest. I chose to sail back to Yaska (ヤスカ) by ship instead of going through the forest maze. If you go the same way as me then, an event will occurr once you reach the first bridge.

 

Forest

Prince Tilkis, I have something to discuss.

 

Tilkis

What’s wrong? You look grim.

 

Forest

Once we’re finished with this incident, please allow me to quit as your body guard.

 

Caius

…It must have been hard work.

 

Rubia

Onii-sama, you have to be kinder to Mr. Forest.

 

Forest

No, it’s not about that.

 

Once we’ve defeated King Areulla, Life Magic won’t be cast anymore.

 

Once that happens, there is no need to hunt Lycanths.

 

In other words, the reason for conflict between humans and Leymon will be no more.

 

Caius

You’re right, that will be great.

 

Forest

However, the discrimination that has been building up over these long years won’t disappear so easily.

 

That is why I want to work to build up the friendship between humans and Leymon.

 

Arria

That’s a wonderful idea.

 

Tilkis

Hmmm, but Forest.

 

I’m sure you’ll need an organisation to perform such activities.

 

Have you got the labour and funds for it?

 

Forest

I have Torth and the others who will help me. I sure they will agree to what I plan.

 

Tilkis

So you have the labour but not the funds…

 

Then in that case, Forest.

 

I can’t let you go from Senshivia.

 

Caius

What do you mean!

 

Tilkis

Senshivia will help in creating this organisation.

 

And Forest will join in as the representative.

 

That way, the funds can be provided by Senshivia.

 

Forest

Prince Tilkis…

 

Caius

That’s great, Mr. Forest!

 

Tilkis earns the title, “Sponsor”!

 

l  Continue on into the next area where the two gates are and another event will take place.

 

Caius

I wonder what Tilkis and Arria are talking about together…

 

At the campfire.

 

Tilkis

Arria, are you studying something there?

 

Arria

Yes. I’m studying so that I can cast Life Magic too.

 

Tilkis

What?!

 

Arria

I’ve understood most of it from what I learned from the Pope’s ceremonies and what Couber told us.

 

It’s all based on a Priseputh.

 

If I can remember it then it may become of use sometime.

 

Of course, I’ll need Pensients when I’m actually going to cast it.

 

Tilkis

Can you really do that! You have some amazing talent.

 

Tilkis sits down next to Arria.

 

…By the way, I want to talk to you about something.

 

Arria

What is it?

 

Tilkis

Once this fight is over, won’t you come to Senshivia with me?

 

Arria

Wh- What, do you mean?

 

Tilkis

There are still lots of Spots left in Senshivia.

 

I’ll need experienced people to help me fight them back.

 

Arria

If that’s what it’s about then, I’ll be glad to help.

 

Tilkis

…No, not just that.

 

If you can… I would be really happy if you could stay afterwards.

 

Arria

Do you mean…

 

Arria stands up.

 

But I serve the Church and I’m a woman of great sin.

 

I’m happy you asked me but, it’s just impossible for me…

 

Tilkis

…I see.

 

I’m sorry I said just strange things to you all of a sudden.

 

But, it doesn’t have to be right away.

 

You can come whenever you like… Could you think about it then?

 

I’ll always be waiting for you.

 

Tilkis starts walking away then the two gazes at one another for a moment before he runs off.

 

Arria

Tilkis…

 

l  Continue towards Mount Are and another event will take place.

 

Caius

We’re nearly at Mount Are. Lets rest a bit.

 

At the campfire.

 

Rubia

Caius, everything will be finished once we reach Mount Are…

 

Caius

Yeah.

 

It feels as if it was only yesterday we left Fern.

 

Rubia

It really does.

 

Even though so much has happened, we’ve been together all this time.

 

Hey Caius. What are you going to do after this?

 

Caius

After this?

 

Rubia

After we’ve stopped the Life Magic.

 

Caius gets up and walks off a little.

 

Caius

To be honest, I don’t know. I’ve been thinking about all sorts of things…

 

I thought I should go travelling first.

 

There are still many things in this world that I don’t know.

 

I want to go see it all alone.

 

Rubia

Alone?

 

Caius

Wh- What’s wrong, Rubia? Is there something wrong with me travelling alone?

 

You’re going to go to Church school right?

 

Rubia

Yes, I’ll be going to school…

 

Hmph! I don’t care if you just died on a roadside, travelling alone!

 

Rubia walks off.

 

Caius

Hey, wait Rubia!

 

What’s she so angry about, all of a sudden.

 

…Oh, so that’s why!

 

She’s angry because I said I’m going to travel alone.

 

I’m such an idiot… I have to invite her with me later.

 

l  Continue on into Mount Are.

 

Mount Are

 

Tilkis

Caius, don’t let your guard down.

 

We don’t know what waits ahead.

 

Caius

I know.

 

Arria

Lets go. We have to go to prevent anymore sacrifices.

 

Rubia

Caius… I’m kind of scared.

 

Caius

It’ll be alright, Rubia.

 

I believe in everyone.

 

Rubia

…Yeah.

 

Tilkis

Come, lets go.

 

Caius

Wait for us, King Areulla!

 

l  Go up the mountain to meet Rommy for a fight. The tactic is pretty much the same as when you fought the Pope except this time, you can go for the Spots first because they don’t respawn. You’ll have to fight her twice.

 

Rommy

I’ve been waiting, Caius.

 

Caius

Rommy!

 

Arria

You’ve been serving the King, haven’t you? I can’t believe you would do such a thing to the Pope…

 

Rommy

Things like this happen often, do they not? On the surface you look as if you’re working for someone but in truth, you’re working for someone else.

 

I’m sure a spy like you would understand, Arria.

 

Arria

Rommy…

 

Tilkis

You mess with people’s minds and tamper with lives…

 

How could you be raised this way!

 

Rommy

Who knows…

 

Maybe I was raised outside of this world.

 

I want to return home soon. For that, you must all die.

 

Especially you, Caius.

 

You’ll be able to reunite with your father. You shouldn’t need to live on.

 

Caius

My father… So the Pope really was my- !

 

Rommy

That’s right, your father.

 

A foolish man who wanted to revive his wife who had died, turning into stone.

 

Caius

I won’t let you say that!!

 

Rommy

Don’t worry.

 

I’ll be sending you to where he is.

 

And the one you love, little Rubia too.

 

Caius

Why you…!!

 

Rubia

Rommy, I won’t be fooled by you anymore! Prepare yourself!

 

This is revenge for my mother and father!

 

Rommy

Bark all you like.

 

I am much different from before!

 

A dark globe appears around Rommy.

 

Forest

This aura… You’re a Spot!

 

Rommy

Good observation.

 

But there’s nothing you can do now.

 

The guards behind her turn to Spots too.

 

Now you must all die here!!

 

l  After the fight.

 

Rommy

I… I can still fight!

 

???

Enough, Rommy!

 

Caius

Lukius!

 

Lukius

Brother, Rommy is a special Spot. You won’t be able to finish her off this way!

 

Rommy

I don’t need your useless chatter here! …Die!

 

Lukius

Haaa!

 

Rommy turns into a red Spot.

 

Rommy

Geaaargh!

 

Lukius

Brother, I’m counting on you now!

 

I’ve cast the Priseputh, now finish her!

 

Caius

Got it, leave it to me!

 

Rommy

Stop this Priseputh now!

 

Lukius falls to his knee.

 

Lukius

I will never… stop…!

 

You will be defeated here!

 

Caius

That’s right, Rommy. This is the end!!

 

l  After the fight.

 

It’s over… Dad, I’ve done it.

 

Rubia

Mother, father… It’s over.

 

Arria

You’re alive, Lukius.

 

Lukius

I barely survived.

 

I was searching for a way to defeat Rommy… I mean that Spot.

 

When Rommy cast Life Magic long ago, her body was taken over by a Spot.

 

She wasn’t a bad person.

 

But I couldn’t stop the Spot from merging into her mind and body…

 

After that, she had completely changed into a Spot.

 

Rubia

And that’s why you went ot find a way to defeat the Spot?

 

Lukius

Yes.

 

Fortunately, there was a hint in the Church’s archives. I just managed to make it here in time.

 

Caius

But Lukius, are you alright?

 

Lukius

I’m all tired out. But we have to defeat the King.

 

You’ll need the extra power right?

 

Caius

Lukius, leave the rest to us.

 

Lukius

But then that means only all of you will be in danger.

 

Caius

Idiot!

 

I’m you big brother and you’re my younger brother.

 

You have to listen to listen to your older brother!

 

It’ll be alright.I will fight the King for both you and dad!

 

Lukius

What’s with the big brother talk all of a sudden…

 

…I understand. I’ll leave the rest to you, Brother.

 

Lukius

There’s one thing I want to ask.

 

Rommy said that she wanted to go home and that she was raised in another world.

 

And King Areulla has the name “traveller”.

 

What is that all about?

 

Does this mean the Spots and the King is from another world?

 

Tilkis

I don’t know for sure but I think it’s highly possible.

 

Rommy once said that she was getting close to home.

 

This maybe the time when Life Magic is being recasted after 100 years and the other world that Rommy was talking about is closing in.

 

Arria

A home of the Spots…

 

I don’t know what Life Magic will do but it looks like something terrible will happen…

 

Caius

Yes, lets hurry and stop the King!

 

We must stop the Life Magic from being cast!

 

The party runs off before Lukius falls to his knee.

 

Lukius

…Brother, come back safe.

 

A Hidden Dungeon

 

l  Now before you head for the final battle, there is still one more place you can go explore. Rommy dropped an Extra Key which allows you to unlock the central door in the City of Leymon. There you’ll find a hidden dungeon with huge amount of treasure for you to collect… and bosses to fight of course. Whether you want to spend the time making your way all the way back is up to you.

 

The Fight with King Areulla

 

l  Make your way through the rest of the mountain until you reach a save point. Save and once you’re ready for the last boss, head up to the giant cathedral you saw earlier for an event. After the short scene enter to fight the King. He likes to spam area attacks that can petrify your members which is why I told you to buy some Banishing Bottles or accessories that protects you from the attack. Other than that, he’s pretty much straight forward.

 

???

You did well to get this far.

 

Caius

Who are you?! Where are you! Show yourself!

 

King

Ha… I must praise you for your courage but, such words are no way to address a King.

 

Caius

So you’re the King…!

 

King

No human or Leymon can enter the area beyond this point.

 

You should wait where you are for the Life Magic to complete.

 

Tilkis

Do you know what you’re saying!

 

We’re here to take off that false mask of yours, so be ready!

 

King

Ha… Very well. But you don’t have long left.

 

Be sure to hurry.

 

Huhahahaha!!

 

Tilkis rushes forward into the doorway but gets repelled back.

 

Tilkis

Woah! I can’t see it but, it seems there’s a heavy particle wall here!

 

Forest

Prince Tilkis, allow me.

 

Forest tries too ram through it too.

 

…I see.

 

So this is what he meant by no humans or Leymon can enter…

 

Rubia

We can’t go on?

 

Arria

There must be some way!

 

Caius

I’ll try!

 

Rubia

You can’t! Onii-sama and Mr. Forest couldn’t do it so you won’t be able to either!

 

Caius

I won’t accept that until I’ve tried once myself!

 

Caius runs forward and feels the wall.

 

We can get through now!

 

Tilkis

But that’s impossible…

 

Tilkis checks for the wall again.

 

Woah, you really did it! You got some skills, Caius!

 

Forest

I see.

 

Caius’ parents was the Pope who was a human and Lady Melissa who was a Leymon.

 

Which means he shouldn’t be barred from this territory.

 

Arria

Then Rommy must have realised that and that’s why she waited to ambush him.

 

Rubia

Well, lets go in quickly!

 

We’ll be in trouble if he created a wall that we all can’t go through.

 

Caius

Yeah!

 

Tilkis

Yeah, that’s right! I know this guy’s scared!

 

Caius

Right, just you wait, King!

 

l  Enter for the final fight.

 

King

Greetings. I am the King of Areulla.

 

Arria

It’s just as Mr. Couber said. He’s still just a child…

 

Rubia

I can’t believe he’s lived 100 years yet he looks just like Caius and I.

 

Forest

Don’t let your guard down. He is the leader of them all…

 

Tilkis

Greetings. I am the Prince of Senshivia, Tilkis.

 

King

I don’t need any more pointless greetings.

 

II never expected for you all to come this far.

 

That must mean Rommy’s been killed.

 

Caius

Do you really think a wall will stop us coming in!

 

This is the end for you, King!!

 

King

Ha. A while back, this would have been dangerous for me.

 

But you’re too late.

 

Look, look at this body. Power is surging right through it.

 

A dark globe appears around the King.

 

Caius

I’ll… I’ll never forgive you.

 

I’ll never forgive you for playing with everyone’s mind for own sake…!

 

King

Huhuhu… It was easy to convince your father.

 

All I had to do was tell him that Life Magic could revive his dead wife and he was desperately gathering Pensients.

 

Couber was the same.

 

He too wanted to revive the dead after all.

 

Tilkis

What in Areulla is so great about Life Magic that would make you go this far!

 

King

Life Magic is the magic that opens the gate linking to my world.

 

I drifted through time to this world because of a failed experiment.

 

I had to think about a way to return to my own world.

 

But I couldn’t complete Life Magic yet.

 

So first, I had Couber experiment.

 

But the Leymon were annihilated before the gate was completely opened.

 

The King disappears and appears on another flight of stairs.

 

Forest

It was an experiment you say?!

 

You destroyed our ancestor’s country because of your experiement!

 

King

That’s right.

 

I then waited for another time when the two worlds would once again meet and continued to complete Life Magic.

 

It’s taken 100 years but it’s no great matter.

 

I then had the Pope experiment with the completed Life Magic.

 

And as a result, the gate opened and the residents from my world, the Spots appeared.

 

But the gate was too small and not many of them could come through to this world.

 

But that’s all in the past now.

 

Life Magic is complete.

 

The King reappears back on his throne.

 

Look.

 

A giant hole appears above the King.

 

Tilkis

That’s… That’s the gate leading to the other world…?

 

Rubia

Caius! There’s so many Spots inside that gate!

 

Caius

Don’t tell me they’re heading to our world.

 

Tilkis

Are you serious!

 

With that number of Spots coming into our world, lots of innocent people will die!

 

King

Does it matter?

 

All that we’re doing is clearing out the old residents and replacing them with Spots.

 

This world will become a easier place to live in.

 

I will become the King of both worlds.

 

Forest

Then I must close that gate even if it means my life!

 

King

Don’t worry.

 

Even if you manage to close the gate, I will open it time and time again.

 

I can make many more Pensients.

 

It won’t be as effective as using the souls of Lycanths but I can still use human souls.

 

That’s right, with millions of lives I can create more…

 

Arria

How can he think of such a horrifying thing…

 

Caius

I will stop you! I won’t let anyone else die!!

 

King

Hahaha…

 

I have infinite power surging to me from my homeworld.

 

Will you be able to win against that?

 

Rubia

We will!

 

Tilkis

We have a world we need to protect!

 

Arria

We have people we want to save!

 

Forest

We have friends we want to protect!

 

Caius

That’s why we will never lose!

 

l  After you beat the King.

 

King

How… How can I lose…Where… do you… get your… power from…

 

Tilkis

Even if we explained it to someone who only thinks about themselves like you, you wouldn’t understand.

 

Forsete

We didn’t fight for ourselves.

 

We fought for the sake of our friends!

 

Arria

We fought because we don’t want any more people to be in sorrow!

 

Rubia

The ones we love and want to protect gave us the courage and strong minds to fight!

 

Caius

We’re not your tools.

 

The strong thoughts of mum and dad, Lukius’ wish…

 

And all our friends supported us. We’re different from you who are all alone.

 

There is no way we would lose!

 

King

…How dare you… I won’t die… I will be returning home…

 

Tilkis

We can’t leave it like this. We have to close the gate!

 

Rubia

But how!

 

Arria

We must cast Life Magic one more time! Then the gate will close!

 

Don’t worry about the Priseputh. I’ve seen it being used many times after all.

 

Rubia, please support me during the spell casting.

 

Rubia

O- OK.

 

Forest

But what will we do for a Pensient?

 

Caius

I’ve got my Pensient!

 

Rubia

But that’s your mother’s…

 

Caius

It’s alright.

 

It was in my hands just for this purpose.

 

Mum… you won’t mind, will you?

 

Arria

I understand.

 

Caius, throw the pendant into the centre of the gate!

 

Caius

Got it!

 

I’m counting on you Pensient!

 

Rubia

Please help us, Caius’ mother!

 

Caius throws the pendant into the gate and it disappears.

 

Tilkis

So it’s over…

 

Forest

Yes, the victory is ours.

 

Arria

The world is saved.

 

Rubia

Good work, Caius.

 

Caius

…Yeah.

 

Caius walks off a bit.

 

Thank, mum, dad…

 

The others follow him out.

 

3 months later back in Janna, Forest is discussing something with Torth at the port.

 

???

It’s been a long time.

 

Forest

Prince Tilkis! So you’ve finally decided to visit Areulla again!

 

Tilkis

I’m not your superior anymore. You can stop addressing to me that way.

 

Forest

But… it’s hard to stop addressing you like this.

 

Tilkis

Haha.

 

By the way, how’s it going?

 

How are the activities going within the Leymon Council?

 

Forest

Currently we’re working with the humans to restore Janna to its original form and to sort out any other inner conflict.

 

It will take a long time but, it’s possible to restore the friendship between humans and Leymon.

 

But it’s not something that will happen overnight.

 

We plan to start by educating the young slowly.

 

Torth

We have greater hope than the last time we came to Janna.

 

No matte what happens, we won’t give up.

 

Tilkis

I see.

 

Senshivia will help out too.

 

Forest

Thank you.

 

By the way, Prince Tilkis. Has all the Spots in Senshivia been defeated?

 

Tilkis

Yes, Arria’s been helping too.

 

Arria arrives.

 

Arria

It’s been a long time.

 

There wasn’t that many Spots in Senshivia so they put up a weak fight.

 

The only problem was they were spread out pretty wide.

 

I can’t sense the Spots increasing so the people of Senshivia will be able to live in peace again.

 

Forest

I see, that is good.

 

Now that you mention it, Caius and Rubia should be here soon…

 

???

Tilkis!

 

Caius and Rubia arrives.

 

Caius

How ya been?

 

Rubia

You’re a beautiful as always, Arria.

 

Arria

Huhu, you two seem to be doing fine.

 

Rubia

Hey, are you going to live in Onii-sama’s country?

 

Arria

Eh?!

 

Wha- What are you walking about?

 

I’m a member of the Church here in Janna.

 

Helping eradicate the Spots was my mission so I can’t stay away any longer…

 

Lukius arrives.

 

Lukius

You’re back, Arria. Good work.

 

Arria

Lukius, it’s been a while.

 

Aren’t you busy with the Church?

 

Lukius

After the Heretics Trial Committee disbanded, my work is over for now.

 

There’s been a lot of mistakes because of the Heretic Hunting but, the Church is a place that people attend so we’re planning to reform.

 

Oh, and I have something to speak to you about, Arria.

 

You have new orders.

 

We want you to continue staying in Senshivia as you’re doing now to help reconstruct the country.

 

It is the Church’s decision

 

Arria

Eh? What’s going on?! I just came back you know…

 

Lukius

It was a request from the Senshivia Royal Family…

 

Arria

Tilkis, you…

 

Did you do this to force me because I refused to stay?

 

Lukius

It- It wasn’t me!

 

My father… I mean His Highness seems to have taken a liking in you.

 

Won’t you… come back…?

 

Arria

Idiot. There’s no reason I would refuse, would I…

 

Everyone looks at Tilkis and Arria as they gaze at each other.

 

Rubia

Wooo, there’s so much love going on between Arria and Onii-sama.

 

I don’t want my Onii-sama to be taken away but I guess it can’t be helped.

 

Lukius

Arria, you can leave the Janna Church to us. I’ll be here too after all.

 

Arria

…OK, I understand.

 

Tilkis

So what will you do from here, Caius?

 

Will you work with the Leymon Council or with the knights?

 

Caius

I’ve been thinking…

 

And I have a favour to ask you, Tilkis.

 

There’s a ship that usually leaves from Senshivia to the western continent, isn’t there?

 

Tilkis

Yes, there’s a ship that sails to Lido.

 

Caius

I want to go on it. I want to go see more of the world.

 

Arria

What about you, Rubia? You’ll be going together with him, won’t you?

 

Rubia

Caius told me he’d going to travel alone.

 

So I’m planning to go to school to become a priestess.

 

Caius

You’re not going to be learning any magic even if you go study in school.

 

Rubia

…Then I will inherit the church in Fern.

 

Caius

I- I see…

 

Won’t it be a lot of work managing the church there alone?

 

Rubia

Then why don’t you help me, Caius!

 

Caius

Well…

 

Rubia

So you’re going to travel alone then.

 

Caius

Well…

 

Rubia walks up to Caius.

 

Rubia

Say it out clearly, Caius! What do you want to do?

 

Caius

…I want to go travel together with you, Rubia.

 

Rubia

I can’t hear you.

 

Caius

Why are you teasing me like that!

 

I like you and that’s why I want to go travelling with you!

 

Arria

Caius is completely under her control. Maybe I can learn something…

 

Tilkis

What?!

 

Rubia

…I guess it can’t be helped. I’ll go with you.

 

You’ll be scared of ghosts if you went alone after all and you wouldn’t be able to go the toilet even.

 

Caius

Like I said, that was when I was small!

 

But thank you…

 

Forest

Caius, be sure to see lots of things.

 

When you return, I’m sure your experience will not only be of use to you but also to the whole of Areulla.

 

Arria

Have a good trip.

 

The next time we meet, you two will be adults…

 

Lukius

Brother, please enjoy the world for me too.

 

Tilkis

Well, if that’s decided then allow me to provide you with a ship. Lets get one arranged right away!

 

You can go on the ship we came on to Senshivia.

 

Caius

Really?!

 

Rubia, lets get on it quick!

 

Caius runs off.

 

Rubia

Wa- Wait!

 

Let me pack up first!

 

I guess it can’t be helped…

 

Thank you for taking care of us, everyone.

 

We’re off then!

 

Rubia runs off and together with Caius, they board the ship. Everyone waves goodbye.

 

l  Well, hope you enjoyed the story and unlocked some fun wallpapers on the main site!
