           --   Text-only version v1.1  April 29th, 2000 --

=======================================================================
 
" Alent Project was born in 1998 from the association of 
passionate people who wanted to make one of the greatest games ever, 
Grandia, understandable by non-Japanese speakers. The Alent 
Project site (http://grandia.dreamcast-hq.net) has from then
united all 3 of the available fan-translations of Grandia with the 
hope an official translation would come... which finally happened. 

As of october 1999, an english version of Grandia has finally
been released. Even if we weren'table to translate all the game, 
we've made it to over 50% of the storyline conversations.

We staff members think it's been great to work all together to
put up this translation. Now, most players can enjoy the full
official translation, and the time has come to say goodbye. Alent
Project is now over, but we may see you again someday, if another
great RPG such as Grandia remains untranslated. This is no
farewell, this is only goodbye... "

Welcome to the text-only version of Alent Project ! Upon popular 
demand, this text format version has been made available. 
A number of corrections have been made from the HTML version.

INSIDE AN AIRSHIP OF THE GARLYSLE ARMY

     Baal
     Mmph...I must have dozed off...and I had that dream again...hurrying
     me. Myuren, what is our current position ?

     Myuren
     We have traveled at least halfway to our destination. You seem tired,
     Shogun Baal.

     Baal
     How many times must I tell you, Myuren ? When the troops aren't around
     you may call me "father".

     Myuren
     Is that what you wish ? But.. Leen is with us.

     Baal
     Ha, ha, ha... That sounds like something you would say. Leen is,
     needless to say, a highly important component in the implementation of
     our secret plan. You need not be afraid of her.

     Leen
     .................

     Baal
     The total exploration of the Saruto Ruins is already nearly complete.
     However, I trust that your personal investigation will yield the
     greatest finds.

     Myuren and Leen
     ..................

     Myuren
     Since this is being handled by the elite western army, you should
     expect good results.

     P.A. System
     It is now 13:40 military time. We are currently passing through Parm
     airspace. ETA at our final destination is 15:30.

     Myuren
     Leen, open the window for our liege.

     Leen
     Yes, Commander Myuren.

     **** ON THE STREETS OF PARM

     Man
     HEY YOU !!! YOU LITTLE PUNK !!! So it's you again Justin ! I can't
     believe you're still bent on trying to steal from my storeroom !

     Justin
     No, I'm not ! Listen to me !

     Man
     I can see what you're doing ! You're destroying the place !

     Justin
     No, I'm searching for treasure ! I just have to find some ! I'm an
     adventurer !

     Man
     What the hell are you talking about ?! And just how do you expect to
     find treasure in all this junk ? (BONK !!!) Now for the last time,
     STAY OUTTA' HERE !!

     Sue
     Justiiiiiiin ! Hey, hey Justin. Are you okay ? That sounded kinda'
     painful

     Justin
     Oh, hey there Sue.... So you saw all of that, huh ? Well, don't worry
     about me. It'll take more than that to faze me, right ?

     Sue
     Yeah.... Did you find anything in the storeroom ?

     Justin
     Nope... he's right about one thing. There really is nothing but junk
     in there. How about you ?

     Sue
     Of course, I found something ! Ta-da ! Look at this ! The Armor of
     Legend. And I found it all by myself !

     Pooy
     Pu ! Pu ! Pu !

     Sue
     Oh yeah, Pooy helped too. Well, here you go, Justin ! The Armor of
     Legend.

     *** Received the dirty apron.

     Justin
     Alright, Sue ! Now we have one of the items. So all we need to do is
     find the Shield of Light, Helm of Courage, and the Sacred Soul Sword.

     Sue
     But if you don't find them before sundown, you lose ! That would be
     terrible ! I don't want to be Gantz's bride you know ! I can't believe
     you actually agreed to something like that Justin ! This whole thing
     is your responsibility !

     Justin
     I know, I know. Alright, Gantz ! I'll show you !

     Sue
     We're going too, Pooy !

     Pooy
     Pu ! Pu !

     Justin
     : We've found it, Gantz ! The first treasure!

     *** NEAR THE BRIDGE

     *** Talk to the boy, Gantz, at the center of the bridge.

     Gantz
     Hey there, Justin ! You took long enough ! Pretty shocking for a
     "world-class adventurer" ! Speaking of adventurers, did you know
     that"The World's End" has nearly been totally explored ? That means
     adventurers will soon be obsolete ! It's inevitable !

     Justin
     What's "The World's End" ?

     Gantz
     What ?! You call yourself a world-class adventurer and you don't even
     know what "The World's End" is ? Well, sounds like you don't have much
     of a chance of finding all 4 treasures before sunset. And when you
     lose, I'll be Sue's master, and she'll be my bride !

     Justin
     Hey, what're you talking about, Gantz ? Surely there's plenty of time
     to search after sunset. Oh yeah, take a look at this !

     **** Justin shows the dirty apron to Gantz.

     Gantz ...heh ? The Armor of Legend, huh ?

     Justin
     He, he... Now how's that for starters ?!

     *** Talk to Gantz again.

     Gantz
     Hmmph, all you've got is the armor, big deal ! Now does Justin, the
     3rd-rate adventurer, need a hint ??

     *** 3 Choices
     1) I'll find them without your help !
     2) Tell me about the Helm of Courage.
     3) Ok, so what's your hint for the Shield of Light?

     **** Choose 1

     Gantz
     ....What !? So think you can find em' without my help, eh ? Even if
     you could find those two, there is no way you'll find the Sacred Soul
     Sword !

     *** Choose 2

     Gantz
     The Helm of Courage, huh ? You'll find it in a place where you can
     hear the sound of rushing waters.

     Justin
     The sound of rushing waters... ?

     **** THE HELM OF COURAGE

     *** Walk alongside the dike that divides the city in half. You'll find a
     staircase going down to the river. If you're having a hard time
     finding it, just rotate the map. You can't miss it. Now walk towards
     the west and you'll see a sparkling item. Click on it.

     Sue
     Hey, Justin. Do you think this pot could be the Helm of Courage ?

     Justin
     Oh yeah, that's right Sue ! This is it ! He, he, he... just you wait,
     Gantz !

     *** Received the used old pot.

     *** Go back to Gantz.

     Gantz
     Hey, Justin ! You've noticed the futility of your search, and have
     come back to grovel before me, right ?

     *** Justin shows Gantz the worn-out pot.

     Gantz
     Ehh !? Dang, the Helm of Courage ! Well, you've still got two more
     treasures left. For now, try finding the Shield of Light. You'll find
     it in a place you can hear seagulls calling.

     Sue
     Seagulls, huh ?

     *** THE SHIELD OF LIGHT

     *** Head to the harbor. Once there, walk forward then left. You should see
     a sparkling item near one of the walls.

     Sue
     Maybe... this saucepan lid could be the Shield of Light !

     Justin
     ....huh ? Hey, that does look like a shield ! Let's get it !

     Received the saucepan lid.

     *** Go back to Gantz.

     Gantz
     So what do you have this time ? Show me !

     Justin
     He, he... I've got the Shield of Light !

     ***  Justin shows Gantz the saucepan lid.

     Gantz
     .... Hmmph ! So you've found the shield, huh ? I guess that means
     you've got 3 of the 4 treasures, but this is where you fail, Justin !
     For the Sacred Soul Sword is next !

     Justin
     Haha ! I'll find the sword before you know it, Gantz ! And when I do,
     I win this challenge !

     Sue
     Still... I haven't seen anything that resembles a sword...

     *** THE SPIRITS SWORD

     *** Talk to Gantz again.

     Gantz
     Listen up, Justin ! The sword is inside my treasure chest within my
     house. But you can't open it, because it's locked tight, loser ! Ohh,
     I wonder where the key could be ! Ha, ha, ha !

     Justin
     The key to his treasure chest... Hmm... I wonder where it is ?

     Gantz
     Hey Justin ! Since you're such a big-shot adventurer opening that
     treasure chest should be a piece of cake for you. Of course if you
     can't, you're certainly not worthy of the title, "adventurer", are you
     ?

     *** Head to Gantz's house. Once inside, click on the treasure chest.

     Justin
     Well, this must be the treasure chest. *Mmmmph* ! Ugh, I can't get it
     open... If only we had the key...

     Sue
     Why don't we ask Gantz's mom ?

     *** Talk to Gantz's mom.

     Gantz's Mom
     Ah, there, finished ! Now where could Gantz and Tentz be off to ? Why,
     it's already time for dinner ! Oh, what is it, Justin ? Can't seem to
     find the key to Gantz's treasure chest, eh ? Ah yes, I remember Gantz
     giving Tentz the key around lunchtime. Why don't go find Tentz and ask
     him about it ?

     *** Go talk to the kid outside of the tavern.

     Tentz
     What am I gonna do ? Oh what am I gonna do !? Sniffle, sniffle,
     *whimper*, *whimper*, WAAAAAAH !!

     Justin
     Hey Tentz, what's wrong ? Why are you crying ?

     Tentz
     Sniffle, sniffle, *hic*... I'll tell but... You wouldn't tell my big
     brother about it, right ?

     *** 2 Choices
     1) Well, I can't be sure until you tell me.
     2) Well... I guess I will probably tell your brother.

     *** Choose 1

     Tentz
     WAAAH ! No, no, that's no good !! If you ended up telling him, he'd
     hit meeeeeeeeeee !! WAAH! WAAH ! Someone's gotta help me... Sniffle,
     sniffle.

     *** Choose 2

     Tentz
     Noooo ! Nooo ! You can't !!! If you told him that I lost the key it
     would be hoooooorible !!!

     Sue
     Hmm.. I see.. Seems like the key to the treasure chest is lost.

     Tentz
     How... How did you know !? I can't believe it !! Sue, you can read my
     mind !?

     Sue
     Hee, hee... Tentz, you poor little kid, that's cute. Now, now, stop
     crying we'll help you find the key, right Justin ?

     Justin
     *smiles* Well, I guess we have no choice, right ? Now Tentz, do you
     have any idea where you might have dropped the key ?

     Tentz
     Sniffle, sniffle... Well I was just by the riverbank near the
     tavern... Then I tripped and fell...

     Sue
     It must be near the river ! Let's check !

     Walk toward the river and crawl all around near the edge of the river,
     until you find the key.

     Justin
     Hey, what's this ? He, he, he ! I've found it !

     Tentz
     Yeah, that's it ! Thanks Justin and Sue !

     Justin
     Well you sure perked up !

     Tentz
     I owe you one, Justin. I won't forget this favor you've done for me.
     Well... At least I'll remember it until the day after tomorrow !

     Sue
     He, he ! Well, looks like you're back to your old self, Tentz ! And to
     think, you were crying your eyes out a while ago.

     Tentz
     Gantz told me to not let you have the key but... Oh go ahead and keep
     it, Justin ! It's my way of repaying you for helping me out. Just make
     sure you tell Gantz that you took the key away from me by force,
     otherwise he'll beat me up ! The Sacred Soul Sword is in the treasure
     chest inside our house. Let's go !

     *** Go back to Gantz's house and try opening up the chest.

     Justin
     Alright ! Let's open the chest !

     Sue
     Boy you sure look excited, Justin ! Pooy thinks so too !

     Pooy
     Pu ! Pu !

     Justin
     Okay... There it is ! The Sacred Soul Sword !

     *** Received the wooden sword.

     *** Go back to see Gantz

     Greg
     Why do you kids do such bad things !? Are you listening to me, Gantz ?
     !

     Justin
     What's going with Gantz over there ? I wonder what he did to make old
     Greg so mad ?

     Sue
     See ? And I told him not to block the bridge ! He's so stupid !
     ....And that's why we're just going to walk across, we had nothing to
     do with it !

     *** Walk toward the bridge.

     Greg
     Hmm ? Wait, ustin ! Were you playing with Gantz ?

     Justin
     Hey, what're you talking about ? I wasn't playing with him !

     Sue
     Th-that's right, Mr. Greg ! We're just passing through... right, Pooy?

     Pooy
     Pu ! Pu, puu !

     Gantz
     You can't believe them ! Of course they were playing with me ! I
     challenged Justin to a treasure hunting contest !

     Greg
     Is that so... ? What's the meaning of this, Justin ! ?

     Justin
     Yikes ! This doesn't look too good ! At any rate, RUN Sue !

     *** THE SEAGULL CAFE

     Justin
     Huf, huf, huf... Aah.. That was close... Jeez, He didn't have to get
     so mad !

     Sue
     Justin, you musn't behave so poorly ! I can't depend on you at all !

     *** Walk up to the counter.

     Lily
     Hey, Justin ! (BONK !)

     Justin
     OWWW ! Mom, what did you do that for !?

     Lily
     Aren't I always telling you not to track mud in the kitchen ?!

     Justin
     Still... Why don't you give me a warning before you bash my head in !?

     Lily
     What are you talking about ? My number one rule of the Seagull Cafe is
     that everyone stays out of the kitchen so I can keep it clean. Got it
     ? Now get out, get out ! Boy, what a troublesome kid ! Always trying
     to enter the kitchen, but never giving me any help !

     Sue
     Hello, Aunt Lily. You know, if you keep bonking Justin's head like
     that, he might get really stupid.

     Lily
     Ha, ha, ha ! Oh don't worry, Sue, Justin's head can't get any worse
     this.

     Justin
     What a terrible thing to say ! How can you say that to your only child
     !?

     Lily
     Why don't you try being a good child, so I can't say such things,
     Justin ?

     Justin
     Hmmph... I'm getting nothing but anger today !

     *** Talk to Lily again.

     Lily
     Nothing but anger... !? JUSTIIIIN ! What have you been doing all day
     !? Ok... I'm calm now. Just tell me the truth, I won't get mad.

     Justin
     That's a lie ! You always get mad at me, even when I tell the truth !

     Lily
     What are you talking about ! You've never tried telling the truth
     before ! Now then, please be honest with me. What did you do today ?

     *** 3 Choices
     1) M-mom... getting angry like this... causes you to get more
     wrinkles.
     2) Actually I've been busy since morning.
     3) I didn't do anything today ! Ask Sue !

     *** Choose 1

     Lily
     That's none of your business ! (BONK !)

     *** Choose 2

     Justin
     Well, actually, I've been busy since dawn, and haven't had any time to
     cause trouble. In fact, there were *tons* of things I had to do.

     Lily
     Hmm... and just what exactly have you been busy doing ?

     Justin
     Eheh, heh, heh... I kinda' forgot that little detail.

     (BONK !)

     Lily
     I can't believe you'd say something so stupid !

     *** Choose 3

     Justin
     I didn't do anything ! Ask Sue ! Even I can't into trouble every
     single day, right ?

     Lily
     Is that right, Sue ?

     Sue
     I-it's true, Aunt Lily ! Justin didn't do anything naughty today.
     H-h-honest... !

     Lily
     Are you sure that's the complete truth, Sue ?

     Sue
     Well, yes... He didn't do anything bad. At least compared to what he
     did yesterday.

     (BONK !)

     Lily
     So you were up to something, after all ! I keep telling you to be
     honest with me. I swear, this kid... Well, I don't know exactly what
     you did, just that you made someone in town angry... Oh well, let's
     have dinner. I've fixed up something new today. You can have dinner
     with us today too, Sue.

     Sue
     Are you sure it's okay ? I've been eating here everyday.

     Lily
     How polite ! Well, your aunt says ok, so don't worry about it. Now
     then, you kids go wait upstairs, alright ?

     *** DINNER WITH LILY

     Lily
     The museum curator had lunch at the restaurant today. Strange, since
     he always simply brings a sack lunch to work. Ah.. oh yes, he also
     mentioned that he wants to see you at the museum tomorrow. Something
     about returning something important he's been safeguarding for you...
     You dont's suppose it's just more junk he had to get rid of ?

     **** Talk to Sue.

     Sue
     Whew, I worked up a big appetite after all that running. We had a
     little adventure, didn't we ?

     Justin
     Yep, but my descendents had truly magnificent adventures ! See those
     those photos on the wall ?

     Sue
     Yeah, your dad was just the greatest adventurer, wasn't he ?

     Justin
     That's right ! And one of these days, my picture will be on that wall
     too ! It'll be right next to my dad's !

     *** Talk to Sue again.

     Sue
     Still, your dad doesn't look like an adventurer from this picture. He
     wasn't too big, and he doesn't really seem that rough and tough.

     Justin
     Still, he was really smart, and always kept detailed writings of all
     his discoveries. He also was calm, no matter what the situation !

     Sue
     Yeah, and Justin is the exact opposite no matter what the situation.
     Hee, hee, hee...

     Justin
     He, he ! But I'll show you, I'm going to be a great adventurer, just
     like him !

     *** Talk to Lily.

     Lily
     I wonder what the Curator's been safeguarding for you ? It must be
     your father's old memento, that Spirit Stone. Now mind you, your
     father wasn't the type to lie, but to think that was the real Spirit
     Stone ! Still, now that I think about it, that little stone was your
     father's most prized possession.

     Sue
     Oh, oh ! I want to hear about the time you and Justin's dad met !

     *** Talk to Lily again.

     Lily
     We met each other onboard a ship the first time. It was a nice, quite,
     moonlit night, and the sea was completely silent.

     Sue
     Did you hear that Justin ? A nice, quite, moonlit night by the sea !
     How romantic~.

     Lily
     And then, all of a sudden, a band of pirates appeared, and in the
     blink of the eye they boarded your father's ship.

     Justin
     Hey ! Now this story's starting to sound interesting ! Hey, hey... so
     what happened after that ?

     *** Talk to Lily again.

     Lily
     Well, the pirate captain caught sight of your father's prized stone.
     Then he drew out his sword and said, "Hand over that stone !"

     Justin
     Really !? You go Dad !!! And then ? And then ?

     Lily
     Well, the pirate captain was very impressed with your dad's courage
     and decided not to take the stone.

     Justin
     Wow, I wonder what type of guys those pirates were ? They were
     probably burly sea men with long beards and big muscles.

     Lily
     A-ha-ha-ha ! Heavens no ! They were all girls who were about your age
     ! In fact, there was one called "Lily the Skull."

     Justin
     Now where have I heard that name before... ? Hmm... Lily... Lily... Oh
     yeah ! That's you, Mom !

     Lily
     A-ha-ha ! You finally noticed ! I was young back then and did all
     sorts of reckless things.

     Sue
     I didn't know Aunt Lily was a pirate ! In that case, I wanna' be a
     pirate too !

     Lily
     Well, I'm actually a little embarrassed by it, so don't tell anyone,
     okay ? Well, I guess everyone probably knows about it by now...

     *** Talk to Sue.

     Sue
     Wow ! So I guess Lily isn't just skilled at cooking and cleaning. When
     I grow up, I want to be just like her !

     *** Select yourself (Justin).

     Lily
     Already finished ? There's plenty left, so don't hesitate to have
     another helping.

     *** 2 Choices
     1) Well then, I guess I'll have another helping !
     2) Nope, I'm stuffed.

     *** Choose 1

     Lily
     Alright then, another helping coming up ! Bon appétit !

     *** Choose 2

     Justin
     Boy, that was delicious !

     Sue
     We have to go visit the museum Curator tommorow, right ? Don't forget
     !

     *** THE MUSEUM

     *** After you awaken...

     Sue
     Morning, Justin
     ! Let's get going !

     *** Go to the museum, it's in the southeast area of Parm.

     Receptionist
     Welcome to the Shogun Baal Memorial Museum ! This museum showcases our
     country's latest developments in the field of archaeology... Ah,
     Justin, you've come to talk to the Curator, right ?

     *** Talk to the receptionist.

     Receptionist
     Hey, Justin, I hope you're aware that adventuring is "out" right now.

     Justin
     Hmmph... as if I cared ! Enough of that already !

     Receptionist
     *snicker* I guess you already knew. The Curator is in the exhibition
     room. Just try not to get into any trouble, ok ? Oh, and we recently
     put up a new poster. It's right next to that sun relief. Why not have
     a look at it ? Try to read the poster.

     Sue
     Hey Justin, what's this say ? Read it to me.

     *** 3 Choices
     1) The Origins of the Baal Memorial Museum
     2) Meshina's Historical Treasures, The Ruins of Saruto
     3) The Archeaological Meaning of "Enjule"

     Justin
     While Shogun Baal was a soldier, he had a keen interest in
     archaeology. At that time, he urged the military to support
     archaeological projects, especially those requiring dangerous
     excavations. He's been quoted to have said, "A man must know history,
     for history contains the greatest lessons one can be imparted with."
     Our Shogun has made many contributions to the field of archaeology,
     among them is the establishment of this museum... Wow, if it wasn't
     for this guy, we'd probably never get to view all these cool relics !

     ***  Choose 2

     Justin
     At the time the Saruto Ruins were discovered, they were the biggest
     the world had seen. Its gigantic size exceeded all expectations. The
     ruins were discovered in the Saruto area northwest of Parm, and are
     thought to have been the stronghold of a powerful ruler in ancient
     times... Hey, my grandfather discovered Saruto Ruins ! And one day,
     I'll make my own great discoveries !

     ***  Choose 3

     Justin
     Enjule is the ancient name for our civilization. Enjulian is the
     ancient equivelent of Parmian, our ancient culture is known as the
     Enjule culture. This term is used to clearly distinguish between
     ancient and modern times in history and archaeology. In modern Parm,
     there is a well known story called the Legend of Enjule. Could this
     story have been passed on from ancient times ? Most experts believe
     that the legend was actually created by a very powerful and
     influential ruler of Enjule. However, the exact meaning of the legend
     remains a mystery to this day.

     *** Go to the exhibit hall and talk to the Curator.

     Justin
     Hey there, Mr. Curator !

     Sue
     Good day to you, Mr. Curator.

     Curator
     Ah, you're just in time, Justin, my boy ! Now why don't you have a
     look this ? (you look up) It's a new Koyokujin image ! We just
     finished restoring it today !

     Justin
     Wow, so this an image of a Koyokujin, huh ? I've never seen a type
     like this before.

     Curator
     Mmm.. Yes, it was excavated by the Garlysle army from the Domu Ruins
     in the new world, Elencia.

     Justin
     Wow, Domu Ruins... Those are the largest ruins in Elencia ! Man, I
     wouldn't mind exploring those someday.

     Curator
     Is that so... Is that so... Well they say that one with a hopeful
     spirit can do great things, Justin. According to the Enjule legend,
     the Koyokujin created a dreamlike world, a true paradise, with the
     power of the Spirit Stone. There are a number of interesting ideas in
     the legend... They are things about a city that floated in the sky, a
     ship that could travel to the stars...

     Justin
     A steam engine that could run forever !

     Curator
     The place where time is frozen, the Holy Land, the home of the Spirit
     Stone !

     Justin and Curator
     And the immortal high priest that lives there !

     Sue
     Uh, do we have to keep going on with this subject ?

     Justin
     That's not very polite, Sue ! Just try to wait a little longer.

     Sue
     I can do that ! I understand the dreams of men. That's why I'm a
     refined lady~.

     Curator
     Ha, ha, ha ! Anyhow, when I try to contemplate the nature of this
     legend, these utopian ideas seem to have almost certainly been
     fabricated by a very influential ruler of Enjule. This king invented
     such things as spirits and Spirit Stones to try to legitimize his
     existence.

     Justin
     Man... Looking at it like that makes it seem so boring. Archaeology
     doesn't seem like much fun.

     Curator
     Ha, ha, ha. I'm sorry ! I too prefer talking about more exciting
     things. Is this scientific talk boring you, Justin, my boy ?

     Justin
     Yeah, and to think that all those fantastic myths and legends may be
     just ordinary things. That seems so depressing.

     Curator
     True. The fantastic ideas of these myths are their true beauty, not
     their assumed origins.... Ah, oh yes ! Before I forget, your father
     left me an artifact called the Spirit Stone.

     Justin
     You've analyzed it, right ? Is it authentic ?

     Curator
     : Ha, ha, ha. I'm not sure really. To begin with, I tried analyzing
     its components, but it's harder than diamond, so I wasn't able to
     study it as much as I wanted to.

     Justin
     Wow, even harder than diamond... ?

     Curator
     Yes, well... I've been trying to think of another way to determine its
     authenticity, but right now I'm going to return it to its rightful
     owner.

     *** He hands you the Spirit Stone.

     Curator
     Here you go. Perhaps you can find out if it has some ancient power.
     Anyway, when you're through examining the image, come to my office.
     I'll give you something I'm sure you'll like. Ha, ha, ha !

     Justin
     The Curator expects me to solve the riddle of the ancient
     civilization, huh ? Well, I, Justin the Adventurer, will do it !

     *** Examine the image.

     Justin
     So this is the Koyokujin image they found at Domu... Hmmm.. Those
     ancient people sure made a lot of these.

     Sue
     So the Domu Ruins are the largest ruins in Elencia, huh ? Wow, Justin,
     you sure know a lot of stuff.

     Justin
     Well, if you want to be an adventurer you have to know these things.
     Still, I get so bored learning about other peoples' adventures. I seem
     like I can just hear the mountains and forests of Elencia just calling
     out to be explored ! And with these bare hands... I will uncover the
     lost civilization of Enjule !

     *** The image breaks.

     Sue
     W-w-w-wha-what did you do, Justin !?

     Pooy
     Pu, pu ! Pupupu !

     Justin
     Ah ! It broke ! W-well, I'll just fix it... Help me, Sue !!

     Sue
     No, i-it's impossible to fix it ! We should just apologize now.

     Justin
     No, I can't ! Did you see how proud the Curator was of this image ?
     Just don't say anything about it, okay ? I remember exactly how it was
     put together, so I can just...

     *** Later...

     Sue
     Is that what it's really supposed to look light ? Somehow it looks...
     different.

     Justin
     ... Well... yes... but, don't you think it looks at least 70% correct
     ? 70% is a passing grade !

     Sue
     In that case... I guess it is a logical substitute. Examine the image
     again.

     Sue
     Justin, it looks really weird.

     Justin
     No, it'll be ok ! Besides, everyone will probably forget all about
     this once I discover Enjule !

     *** Go talk to the curator.

     Curator
     Ah, here it is ! Seeing your warm, smiling faces always brightens my
     day, and I'm sure you'll be smiling up a storm when I give you this...
     Now, it was in my pocket, wasn't it ?

     Justin
     He, he, he. Sounds like you're getting a little forgetful, Mr.
     Curator.

     Curator
     Ha, ha, ha ! Well, old age hasn't gotten the best of me yet ! Oh, and
     I thought I heard a loud noise a while ago, did something happen ?

     CRASH !!

     Justin
     W-what should I do, Sue ? Should I just tell him what happened ?

     Sue
     Hey, don't look at me ! You're the leader !

     *** 2 Choices
     1) N... no it was... uh, nothing.
     2) Actually... I accidently broke that new image.

     *** Choose 1

     Curator
     Is that the truth ? Absolutely nothing happened ?

     *** Choose 2

     Justin
     Well, the truth is... I accidently broke the image.

     Curator
     Ha, ha, ha ! Nice joke, Justin ! Now if that image really were broken,
     it would probably wouldn't be too good for my weak heart. Well, now
     that the jokes are over, I have a present for you.

     Justin
     What is it ? !

     Curator
     A bit impatient, aren't we ? Here it is...

     *** You receive the curator's letter.

     Curator
     The Garlysle Army is currently re-investigating the Saruto ruins. With
     this letter, they'll let you look around the ruins while they work.

          Justin
     ...Really !? Thank you, Mr. Curator !

     Sue
     That's great, Justin ! You were just saying how much you wanted to see
     some ruins just a while ago !

     Pooy
     Puu, puu !

     Curator
     I'm glad I could help ! Now, all you need to do is show this letter to
     the soldiers guarding the ruins, and they should allow you to explore
     the area. Perhaps you can even find out whether that Spirit Stone is
     authentic or not.

     *** Talk to the receptionist on the way out.

     Receptionist
     I wonder what that loud crashing sound was a while ago ?

     Justin
     Ack ! He... he, he. I wonder if it was a mouse or something ?

     Sue
     I know that mouse.... He likes going on adventures....

     OUTSIDE THE RUINS

     *** Talk to the soldier near the fence.

     Soldier
     Hey! Hold it! Kids aren't allowed in here!

     Justin
     Wait a second! Have a look! It's a a letter from the musuem curator.

     Soldier
     Well, I'll be... But what the curator have been thinking, giving kids
     access to these ruins?

     Justin
     Oh, don't worry about those little details. Just let us in, ok?

     Soldier
     Hmm.. Well, I guess I have to now.. You can go in.

     Walk inside the fenced in area. The lieutenants will begin to speak to
     their troops.

     Nana
     Alright troops, fall in! Face your superior officer!

     Saki
     Do you understand the importance of this situation? We've come all the
     way from the new world for this, so we can't leave empty-handed! Make
     sure you don't embarrass us!

     Mio
     You will head to the plaza on the first underground level soon. Please
     standby until you are given the order to proceed.

     Nana
     Alright, now it's time! Get moving! Hurry up, people!

     *** Facing the other lieutenants.

     Nana
     Um, Saki, your troops were late again. I don't think you're
     disciplining them properly.

     Saki
     What are you talking, Nana? I just had them do 3000 squats each!

     Mio
     Saki, you're always trying to think with your muscles instead of your
     brain. The proper way to discipline them is to make them meditate for
     100 days. Don't give them any food or water during this period so they
     can learn the proper technique.

     Nana
     Oh-ho! That's nothing, Mio! I prefer to give them 5000 lashing with my
     whip, pour salt all over them, then stick them in a cell for 100 days!

     Saki
     You'll end up killing them if you do that!

     Mio
     Cmdr. Myuren is going to be upset when hears about that.

     Nana
     Nah, I'm not worried. I forbid my troops to tell anyone about it! Ha,
     ha, ha!

     Mio
     *sigh* We better get going, lest we be late.

     Saki
     Hey, if we're late, it's your troops' fault!

     *** Head toward the entrance of the ruins.

     Nana
     Why are there kids here?!

     Justin
     Alright! So the ruins are underground, right? I'm ready to see them...
     Well, lead the way!

     Nana
     This looks very suspicious... Who are you? Why are you here? Come on!
     Answer me!

     *** 3 Choices
     1) Run madly away from here.
     2) Talk to Sue.
     3) Show them the curator's letter.

     *** Choose 1

     Sue
     Hey, wait a minute, Justin! Don't do anything stupid. How are you
     going to get away from them? It's going to just make them more
     suspicious of us.

     *** Choose 2

     Sue
     Hmm... I despise them. They're so rude!

     *** Choose 3

     Justin
     We've come to check the ruins out. Look, the musuem curator of Parm
     gave us this letter.

     Nana
     Really...? Let's see here...

     Saki
     Hmmm...

     Mio
     What should we do? It looks like the genuine article.

     Justin
     Yeah, that's it! There's nothing suspicous about this at all! So, lead
     on! To the underground level!

     Nana
     You want to go the underground level, eh? Well, alright. Just let me
     see that letter for a second.

     *** She takes it and rips it up.

     Justin
     Wha!?

     Sue
     Aah!

     Nana
     Did you that? Looks like the letter is gone. Now you're considered an
     illegal trespasser.

     Saki
     That's right, that's right! Now we can arrest you, tortue you, and
     then put you to death!

     Mio
     No, they're just children. Let's make an exception for them, ok? Hurry
     and run on home, children.

     Nana
     Well then, Saki, Mio, let's get going. We've wasted enough time with
     these brats.

     *** They walk inside.

     Sue
     What hoooorible people! What did they do that for anyway?! Oh well,
     Justin, I there isn't much we can do now. We should go home now,
     right?

     Justin
     Come on, Sue! An adventurer wouldn't give up so easily!

     *** Try entering the ruins again.

     Sue
     Are you really going inside? I mean, you did hear what those three
     said just a while ago, right?

     Justin
     Certainly, but their behavior revealed to me that there must be
     something they're trying to keep secret down here. This might lead to
     a great adventure!

     Sue
     Honestly, Justin... But you are right about this! I agree, let's go!

     ***  Go inside the ruins and spy on the gathering up ahead.

     Alright, soldiers of the Garlysle Army. Stand at attention for Col.
     Miuren. The investigation of the Saruto Ruins is about to commence.

     Lieutenants
     Yes, ma'am!

     Myuren
     Beloved soldiers of the Garlysle Army. We will now be conducting the
     investigation of the Saruto Ruins. This is our final investigation so
     we need to make sure that we find the final piece that we need. I'll
     tell you right now that going through these ruins will be difficult.
     There might be some of you who won't even make it out of here alive.
     Nevertheless, this is our sworn duty. We have to ensure the success of
     this mission, not only for the glory of the Garlysle Army, but for the
     people as well! We will fulfill the great prophecy from God! Now go
     forth, soldiers of the Garlysle Army, to unlock the gateways of the
     ancient world! And Godspeed... to all of you.

     Lieutenants
     Yes sir~!

     Leen
     Bloody Rose Squad, your assignment is to search the Eastern section of
     the ruins. The Lightning star squad will investigate the western
     section. As for the Desert Moon Squad, your assignment will be the
     southern sector. Squad leaders, you're now in charge. Please do a good
     job!

     Myuren
     Ha, ha. At any rate, let's get going, Lyn.

     Leen
     Yes, sir!

     Sue
     Did you hear all that, Justin?

     Justin
     Yeah, it sounds like something big is going on.

     ***  Go down to the 2nd floor, and go up some stairways to a large stone
     face.

     Soldier 1
     This image looks interesting. Maybe we should report it to Cmdr.
     Myuren.

     Soldier 2
     Hmm... that sounds like a good idea! Let's go!

     Justin
     Whew... that was close. They nearly found us.

     *** Approach the image.

     Justin
     This is the image those soldiers were talking about a while ago, huh?
     It looks pretty mysterious.

     ***  Something begins to glow.

     Sue
     J-Justin! What's happening to you?! Your rear is glowing!

     Justin
     It looks like it's coming from my pocket! It's the Spirit Stone! I've
     never seen it do anything like this before!

     Sue
     Uh.. it looks like it must be pretty hot.

     Justin
     W-what the?! The image.... It was an entrance all along.... So what should
     we do? Should we go inside?

     Sue
     I wonder why it opened all of a sudden? Was it because the Spirit
     Stone was glowing?

     Justin
     That's it, Sue! There must be some connection between the Spirit Stone
     and the ancient civilization here. Hey.. That means this stone is
     authentic! Heh, heh, heh... Alright!! The soldiers in here don't even
     know this place exists! We've made it here first!

     Go inside. You'll make your way to an eye etched into a wall.

     Justin
     Wow.. I've never heard of anything like this being found in one of
     these ruins... It's seems like it's alive.. I think we're on the
     threshold of making a great discovery relating to the Enjule
     civilization! Don't you think so, Sue?

     Sue
     J-Justin! The stone's glowing again!

     Justin
     Sue, I'm being summoned inside by Enjule!

     ***  Go inside.

     Voice
     Welcome, bearer of the Spirit Stone...

     Justin
     Uh... Sue, did you say something just now?

     Sue
     Nope! Not a word.

     The light in the center of the room shines brightly.

     Justin
     Woah! Incredible!

    ***  Head toward the light^_^

     Justin and Sue
     Ahhh!!

     Justin
     W-what, what's happening!?

     Riethe
     Welcome, bearer of the Spirit Stone. Symbol of the ancient contract.

     Justin
     Who are you!?

     Riethe
     I am Riethe of Alent, entwined in the history of Enjule, I descend
     from ages past.

     Sue
     Ahhhhhh! We're gonna fall! We're gonna fall!

     Riethe
     Don't be frightened. This our world, among the stars... Please let me
     ask, why did you unlock the gateway to here?

     Justin
     Um, ah... well, I didn't really think about it. Oh yeah, how did you
     know I was carrying the Spirit Stone back there anyway?

     Riethe
     Without it, you could not open the Enjulian gateway outside.

     Justin
     Enjule... so it isn't just a legend?

     Riethe
     Correct, it is real. The Spirit Stone you carry is evidence of a
     contract made between humans and spirits.. Please watch this...

     ***  An FMV plays...

     Narration
     This is the world of Enjule. In this world, the winged Koyokujin
     brought forth light, and the spirits gave the land their eternal
     blessing. All of mankind was prosperous during this time, but
     eventually humans began to wrestle for power and rule over their
     brothers, corrupting the path of righteousness. The Koyokunin and
     spirits are the only ones remaining that have not strayed from the
     true path...

     That stone you carry used to belong to the Koyokujin.

     Sue
     Hey, Justin. This sounds awfully like the Legend of Enjule, don't you
     think?

     Justin
     I was thinking the exact same thing, but exactly how is Enjule
     connected to the myth? Um, it's Riethe, right? Tell me! Did all the
     events in the myth really happen?

     Riethe
     ........

     Justin
     Tell us, Riethe! Is it all true?

     Riethe
     .... Within this question there is but one answer... If you seek
     answers, you must head toward Alent. Do you seek answers?

     ***  2 Choices
     1) Yeah, there a lot of things I want to know about this!
     2) Ummmm... now how do I put this...

     ***  Choose 1

     Riethe
     If you want to know more, then you have to travel to a land far to the
     east. Let me warn you, however, that finding Alent will require a lot
     of time. It will definitely be a long and arduous journey. Follow the
     path of righteousness and you shall surely never be led astray. Let
     the Spirit Stone guide you, and make sure that you and the sacred soul
     stone are as one. Always keep it near you. To Alent. Seeker of
     answers, head toward Alent.

     Justin
     Eastern land...? Alento...? Does that mean that we'll have to cross the
     sea and go to the new world, Elencia? Riethe! About Alento.... If we go
     to the new continent, will we see you? I mean, will you and the
     Koyokujin contact us? Wait, Riethe!

     Riethe
     Never forget... the radiance of the Spirit Stone will guide you... You
     must go now. I, Riethe, will lie in eternal wait for your arrival...

     Sue
     Riethe... she's gone.

     Justin
     Ah...

     Sue
     Was it all just a dream? It seemed so real...

     Justin
     Oh... But we both saw it, right?

     Sue
     Justin! The stone's shining again! It's shining right now!

     Justin
     W-what? There it goes again!

     Sue
     Unbeeelievable! That's unbelievable, Justin!

     Justin
     Oh yeah, now I remember! The stone really is authentic! And things we
     saw, they weren't just a dream; they were real! Riethe is real!

     Justin
     That's it! I've made up my mind! I'm going to Alent, and I'll meet the
     Koyokujin! I'll find Enjule before you know it! And then... And
     then... oh well, I'm going to Alent for sure! Yes! Only I can pull
     this off! Justin the Adventurer! Alright! Let's do it!

     ***  Attempt to leave.

     Myuren
     ......! Who are you!?

     Justin
     Ahh! Great, they found us!

     Myuren
     Children, in here!? But how... Leen, secure the exit.

     Leen
     Yes, Cmdr. Myuren.

     Myuren
     There are quite a few things I'd like to ask you about. Don't even
     think of trying to escape.

     Sue
     Wh-wh-what should we do!? JUSTIIIIN!

     Justin
     I'll get us out of this somehow!

     Myuren
     Answer truthfully... or consider your life over.

     Leen
     Cmdr. Myuren, please don't do anything rash. They're only children.

     Myuren
     I am quite aware of that, but if they dare jest with me, it won't
     matter whether they're children or not..

     Sue
     Th-thi-this guy... He's not joking Justin... I can tell!

     Myuren
     Now then, your name?

     ***  3 Choices
     1) My name? My name's Alexander.
     2) My name's... Justin.
     3) I have no name!

     Myuren
     Alexander, hmm....what a brave sounding name. But, this girl seemed to
     be calling you by a different name, Justin perhaps?

     ***  Choose 2

     Myuren
     Hmm, hmm. I feel that you have answered obediently. A while ago I
     heard this girl calling that name a number of times.

     ***  Choose 3

     Myuren
     Hmm, seems you're trying to hide your name from me... Don't think you
     can fool me so easily... I heard this girl calling a name a while
     ago... Justin?

     ***  All choices

     Myuren
     Resolve yourself to the truth, for if your antics try my patience... I
     will not hesiate to kill this girl.

     Leen
     Cmdr. Myuren!

     Myuren
     This is my sworn duty. And I wouldn't hesitate to take the life of a
     young boy or girl if I have to. Now then, did you open that entrance?

     ***  3 Choices
     1) It was open when we got here.
     2) I don't know what gateway your talking about.
     3) Well, I suppose I was the one who opened it.

     ***  Choose 1 or 2.

     ***  Myuren swings his sword.

     Justin
     Ahh!!

     Myuren
     I thought I told you to reslove yourself to telling the truth... I've
     given you your last chance, youngster...

     Sue
     Justin!! You're bleeding!!

     Myuren
     If you don't want to die, answer this one with total obedience. What
     did you see within these ruins?

     ***  Choose 3

     Myuren
     Is that so. Up to this point, even the best of adventurers have failed
     in opening that entrance. Now, I will ask you one last question. What
     did you see inside these ruins?

     ***  3 Choices
     1) I saw a mysterious but beautiful girl!
     2) There was this strange looking room, but I didn't see anything in
     there.
     3) There was a strange light floating around and I saw an image of the
     ancient civilization.

     ***  Choose 1

     Myuren
     A mysterious girl...? It must Riethe of Alent? Riethe... so she's
     real...

     ***  Choose 2

     Myuren
     You didn't see anything? You lie! I can see it on your face. It
     doesn't seem like you're going to cooperate. Since I don't want to
     waste my time... I'll simply kill you and try asking this girl.

     Sue
     Stop!! We met a girl and a strange light flew around!!

     Myuren
     I see that the girl is the wiser one. Be grateful to her. If it wasn't
     for her, you would be dead now. Hmm... A light and a girl... the
     girl... Riethe of Alent! The light, a spirit!

     *** Choose 3

     Myuren
     A strange light...? A spirit, perhaps... The image...? Possibly an
     image of the early Enjule civilization. Hmm... Yes, I see... You have
     the soul of an adventurer within you, young lad.

     *** All choices

     Leen
     Cmdr. Myuren...what do you intend to do with these two? Certainly we
     can't just leave them here.

     Myuren
     Don't worry, Leen. Since knowledge of this operation needs to be
     guarded with the utmost secrecy, we'll draft these two into the
     military intelligence division so they won't reveal any information
     concerning this.

     Sue
     Whaaaat!? You're taking us with you? I thought you would let us go
     home...

     Myuren
     Little girl, I know it sounds unreasonable, but you've broken the law.
     You can't return now.

     Sue
     What!? You lie; we didn't do anything wrong! Then I'm going to be in
     the army for the rest of my life!? NO!!! No, No, No....

     Justin
     Don't worry, Sue! Somehow, we can get by them! As long as we're
     together, we can do anything!

     Myuren
     Ha... but even if you can escape from this room, you'll never leave
     Saruto! Ha, ha, ha! So what do you intend to do...? How are you going
     to get past me?

     Sue
     Ohhhhhhh!! Justin...uhh...over there, over there...

     Justin
     Heh, heh. I see... Well! Time to sink or swim!! Sue, let's go!

     Sue
     Yeah! Around and around we go!

     Myuren
     What the-!?

     Justin
     Yes! Let's go, Sue!!

     Myuren
     My minion will be ready for you...! You won't leave Saruto alive!

     *** Try to escape.

     Sue
     L-look! Justin!! What is that?!

     *** After battling the Rockbird.

     Justin
     What the heck was that doing here? It wasn't here when we entered the
     first time!

     Sue
     I bet that Myuren creep had something to do with it!

     Justin
     Oh well, it really doesn't matter now. Let's get out of here.

     Myuren
     Unbelieveable....they already defeated the Rockbird... Haaaaaa, ha,
     ha, ha, ha!

     Leen
     Com... Commander Myuren?!

     Myuren
     Those two!! To think! They outwitted ME?!

     Leen
     Cmdr. Myuren...? Uh.. should we pursue them?

     Myuren
     The small amount of information they possess about Alent will not
     affect our plan. We'll just overlook this incident... What was that
     youngster's name?

     Leen
     I think it was Justin...

     Myuren
     Justin...what a pleasent fellow. I haven't had such laughed like this
     in ages! Ha, ha, ha, ha!

     Justin
     Yess! We made it!! He, he, he... it really wasn't a dream. I'm finally
     going on a great adventure!

     Sue
     Wait a second! We still have to get away from here, right? C'mon,
     let's go back to Parm now.

      Boy, all that adventuring leaves me starved! Let's hurry home.

      *** Return to the Seagull Cafe (where Lily is).

      Sue
      Hey, hey, Justin. I think it's nice that you want to meet Liette and
      all but... do you know just exactly how you're going to get to the new
      continent?

      Justin
      Of course I do! We'll have to get onboard a ship.

      Sue
      And just exactly how are you going to get on a ship?

      Justin
      Eep... uh... that's uh.... I'll just ask Mom! I bet she'll know!

      Welcome home Justin. I already have dinner ready. Hurry up and wash
      your hands.

      *** Select Lily.

      Justin
      Hey, hey mom! Do you know the best way to get on one of those ships
      that go to the new world?

      Lily
      Hmm... let's see... Well, I used to have my own ship so I never had to
      deal with that.

      Sue
      Lilly the Skull had a pirate ship!

      Lily
      Oh well, if you want to get on one of those ships, I guess you'll
      have to ask around over at the harbor.

      Justin
      Hey, that's right! Alright, Sue. We're going to drop by the harbor
      tomorrow.

      Lily
      By the way Justin, it looks like you've got more mud on yourself
      than usual. Where have you been playing at?

      Justin
      I wasn't playing mom. The curator gave me a letter to get into the
      Saruto Ruins so I could conduct scientific research!

      Lily
      Gurgh... HA, HA, HA, HA, HA!!! You were doing scientific research, you
      say? HA, HA, HA, HA, HA!!! That's funny.

      Justin
      What's so funny? Mmm... does she comprehend the importance of
      scientific research?

      *** Select Lily again.

      Lily
      Oh yeah, the curator said a lot of nice things about you. He said
      you were a very enthusiastic young boy.

      Justin
      Oh really... heh, heh. I wonder if that means he's forgiven me for
      breaking that image...wah! Oops!

      Lily
      HEY, JUSTIN!!! You know that I don't want to hear about stuff like
      that! Now just exactly what did you do now? Oh well, I guess there's
      really nothing much we can do about you. I'll just talk to the
      curator tomorrow. Now do you understand why I always scold you when
      you enter the kitchen without my permission?

      *** Select Sue.

      Sue
      You know I'm really curious. The new continent is called Erenshia,
      right? When compared to the continent Palm is on, Meshina, which one
      is bigger?

      Lily
      Oh yeah, huh? That's a good question. Well, they say that there's
      nothing beyond the World's End...

      Justin
      Hey, hey, I know about that! Isn't the World's End supposedly where
      the physical world as we know it ends? I have a hard time believing
      that the world suddenly ends somewhere.

      *** Select Sue again.

      Sue
      Hey, Justin. What kind of place do you think the World's End is?

      Justin
      I'm sure we'll understand better once we see it. Anyway, let's make
      sure that we drop by the harbor tomorrow.

      *** Select Justin.

      Justin
      Mmm, that was delicious!

      Sue
      Well, if we're gonna go to the new continent, we'll have to do our
      best to find a way there tomorrow, Justin.

      THE NEXT DAY

      Sue
      Good morning, Justin!

      *** Go to the harbor and speak to the burly sailor..

      Sailor
      *gulp* The punishment for breaking the Law of the Ocean is being
      tossed into the sea... Well, I guess my friends who are trying to
      stowaway on a ship to the Elencia without a pass deserve it..

      Justin
      A ship pass...? What! You mean, you can't go to the new continent
      without some sort of passport?

      Sailor
      You didn't know that, kid? Unless, you're a soldier or something,
      the only way that you can board a ship is with a ship pass.

      Justin
      Hey, hey, so do you know how to get one? I'd really like to go see
      the new continent too.

      Sailor
      Is that so? Well, I guess the fastest way to get a pass is to get it
      from someone who already has one. Now that you mention it, I think I
      saw an old pass at the tavern. Some old man was showing it to
      someone while telling him about his adventures. I think his name was
      Jin.

      Justin
      Great, a fellow adventurer! I bet he'll help us out. He was at the
      tavern in North Parm, right?

      Go to the tavern. It's the place where you helped Tentz find Gantz's
      key.

      Lady
      Arg... I hate my life... Always working... Not a single vacation for
      me... *grumble* *grumble*

      Justin
      Hey, hey, we're looking for this adventurer. Can we go inside so we
      can talk to him?

      Lady
      What are you talking about? You're still kids! Anyway, I'm really
      busy right now. Honestly, that fellow... it looks like he was in such
      a hurry to leave that he accidently to took the keys with him!

      Justin
      Hmm... so some guy accidentally left with the tavern keys, huh? We'll
      find him for you!

      Lady
      You're offering to help me? Well then, bring me the keys and I'll
      make an exception for you guys. How about if I let you in tonight,
      does that sound good? Now I swear... that kid! He's probably at the
      Seagull Cafe or the harbor.

      *** Go to the harbor and look for a guy in a blue hat.

      Guy
      Aaah.... Man, I've got to wash dishes today. The pay's okay, but it's
      really tiring. Plus, it ruins the hands.

      Sue
      Ah, Justin! This is that guy that the tavern lady was talking about!

      Justin
      Yep, there's no mistake about it! Hey, are you that guy who has the
      keys to the tavern?

      Guy
      Huh? "Keys" you say? AAAH! I still have the keys in my pocket! Hey,
      can I ask you guys a favor? Can you please tell Mama that I'm just
      resting for a bit?

      *** Received tavern keys

      Justin
      "Mama?" Oh, you mean the tavern lady? Sure! Just leave it to us!

      *** Go back to the tavern....

      Justin
      Hey, lady, lady! We found it! This is it, right?

      *** Handed tavern keys over

      Lady
      You're right! This is it! Now I can open the tavern! Thanks for all
      your trouble! We're gonna have this really good jellyfish sake
      today. I'm sure that the guests will be very pleased.

      Justin
      That's just great, lady. Now about your promise....

      Lady
      I know, I know. Okay, I still have to set the tavern up. Come back
      later, okay?

      WITHIN AN AIRSHIP OF THE GARLYSLE ARMY

      Baal
      So Miuren, have you still not turned anything up so far? You really
      have kept me waiting.

      Myuren
      My deepest apologies father. It's just that I encountered an
      unexpected annoyance...

      Baal
      No need for explanations. What I do need to know is if you have
      found the item.

      Myuren
      Unfortunately, I wasn't able to meet your expectations, father. I am
      prepared to face any punishment for our failure.

      Baal
      .... Ha, ha, ha.... Punishment you say? If you couldn't do the task,
      then I don't think that anyone else could... Now you will prepare
      immediently for our next operation. Get ready to depart!

      *** Baal departs.

      Leen
      I wonder what Shogun Baal is in such a hurry for? Didn't he say
      that the plan was still going on as scheduled?

      Myuren
      My father has his own ideas about this plan... You should not
      question them.

      Leen
      I'm sorry.... My behavior was unacceptable.

      Myuren
      No... it's alright. Don't worry about it, Leen.

      Leen
      Ah... yes, sir.

      Myuren
      In the end, we weren't able to acquire anything from the Saruto
      Ruins.... Well, that's not totally true... now that I think about it....
      Ha, ha, ha, ha!

      Leen
      C-Commander Myuren!

      Myuren
      That boy was actually quite amusing.... Justin, was it?

      Leen
      Um... you know, Col. Miuren. It is quite unusual for you to be
      laughing like that.

      Myuren
      That little incident underground has put me in high spirits. It
      actually helped alleviate what normally would have been a tedious
      task. At any rate, it's time for us to depart, Leen. Our
      destination, the new world, Elencia!

      BACK IN PARM

      Sue
      Hey, Justin. I wonder what kind of adventurer Jin is? I can't wait
      to find out!

      *** Go to the tavern.

      Justin
      Here it is! Here it is! This is my first time in here so I'm really
      excited!

      Sue
      It's okay! It's okay! Nobody's gonna get mad so just go ahead and
      enter.

      Barkeep
      Oh, hey there! You're the ones who helped with the keys a while ago
      right? Thanks! I want to give you something to express my gratitude.

      Justin
      Aha, ha, ha... uh oh. But, well, I didn't think that you were going to
      be the one to thank us, Rulia.

      Rulia
      Quit it, Justin! You brought me the keys remember?

      Justin
      Eh?! You're that old lady from this afternoon?!

      Sue
      You mean you didn't know, Justin? Women can use magic to change
      their appearance.

      Rulia
      Me, use magic? Ha, ha, ha! That's funny Sue. Anyway, it looks like
      Jin isn't here today. You might just want to talk to some of the
      guests. See that man in the corner over there? He's always listening
      to Jin's stories. Go over and ask him about old Jin.

      *** Talk to the man in the corner.

      Man
      Jin, huh? That self proclaimed, "great adventurer" that waddles down
      here from the abandoned mines on Mt. Reck, right?

      Justin
      "Self proclaimed", huh? That doesn't sound too good... Anyway, I
      think that's the right guy. Tell me more about him.

      Man
      Hmm... Well, he said that when he was young he was the greatest
      adventurer in Mecina, but since there are so few job opporitunites
      for adventurers now, all does is sit in this bar all day talking
      about the "good ole' days" to all the drunkards in here, and when
      he's not in the bar he stays secluded in the old abandoned Reck
      Mines.

      Sue
      Hmm... I didn't think anyone lived in the Reck Mines.

      *** Try to leave.

      Sue
      Uh oh, Pooy accidently gobbled up some peanuts. Now we've got to
      apologize to Rulia.

      Pooy
      Puu, pu, puu...

      *** Talk to Rulia.

      Rulia
      So Pooy gobbled down some peanuts, did he?

      Justin
      I think he regrets it, so perhaps you could overlook this tiny
      thing?

      Rulia
      No... I can't overlook this, but perhaps if you did me a little
      favor... You see, when that Jin fellow came in here last time, he
      accidently left his wallet. I'd like someone to deliver it back to
      him...

      Justin
      No problem! We're heading up there anyway. We'll need take a train.
      Hmm... I know there's one that heads up to Mt. Reck from the train
      station in Parm. Leave it all to me!Rulia
      Oh yeah, Jin left his wallet in the tavern. Are you planning on
      going to Reck Mines?

      Pooy
      Puu! Puuu! Pu, pu, pu, puu!

      Sue
      Got it Pooey! Hey, Justin. Pooey's getting really hungry. Let's go
      home.

      *** Return to the Seagull Cafe.

      Lily
      Hey, Justin! BONK!

      Justin
      Oww! W-What was that for, Mom! I didn't track in any mud today!

      Lily
      And just what time do you think it is? You got me worried being out
      this late! Oh well, since you made it back safely, I guess it's
      okay. Get ready for dinner then.

      Justin and Sue
      Yeah!!

      AT DINNER

      Sue
      I hope that we get a pass after we visit Jin tomorrow, right Justin?

      Justin
      He must be a great adventurer. I can't wait to meet him.

      *** Select Sue.

      Sue
      You know, this Jin person must be pretty scatterbrained, since he
      forgot he about his wallet.

      Justin
      ... Yeah, even I wouldn't forget that.

      Sue
      How can you remember that and always forget to feed Pooy? Isn't that
      right, Pooy?

      Pooy
      Puu! Puu!

      *** Select Lily.

      Lily
      So you're going to Reck Mines to see Jin, huh? Well, I can tell you
      not to go because it's dangerous but that probably won't stop
      you--you being an adventurer and all. But since you won't be going
      alone, promise me that you'll protect Sue, okay? This is your
      responsibility!

      Justin
      Of course! Don't forget that I'm an adventurer!

      *** Select Justin.

      Sue
      We're going to the Reck Mines tommorow so that we can meet Jin.
      Don't forget, Justin!

      THE NEXT DAY

      Sue
      Good morning, Justin! Let's get going!

      *** Go to the train station in Parm and talk to the man inside.

      Man
      Oh hello, Justin! Do you want me to let you have another look inside
      the train?

      Justin
      No, today I want to go to the Reck Mines, so I can return this
      wallet to some guy named Jin.

      Man
      Is that so... So he lost that, huh...? Well, the tickets are on me.
      You can ride free today!

      Sue
      Really!? Thank you very much, mister!

        ARRIVAL AT RECK MT.

        Man
        Alright, you two, take care of yourselves out there!

        Justin
        Got it! Thanks!

        Sue
        Thank you, elderly man!

        Man
        So I'm an elderly man already? Ha, ha, ha... I just don't understand kids these
        days...

        *** Enter Jin's house.

        Justin
        Huh? There's nobody here. It looks like he just left the house without even
        bothering to lock it. Well I guess there's really nothing we can do about it now.
        I'll just put the wallet here.

        Jin
        Hey! Who the hell are you guys!!! What do you think you're doing just barging into
        my house without permission! Why you little thieves!!! Get your filthy hands offa'
        my wallet!!!

        Justin
        Huh!? No, no, you've got it all wrong! See, we're searching for a pass to...

        Sue
        Don't tell him about that, Jusitn! He won't understand! Tell him about the wallet!
        The wallet!

        Jin
        Fwa-ha-ha-ha! You youngins can't fool me! There's not a single chink in my armor;
        I'm ready for anything you've got! Ah! An idea! Maybe I can reform you! Yea, I'll
        lead you away from the dark side!

        Sue
        Justin, is this guy really Jin? He sure doesn't look like an adventurer to me.

        Jin
        Hey, you little runt! I WAS an adventurer-- the key word here being WAS! You
        fellas, on the other hand, are still actively adventuring I believe.

        Sue
        Wha, how did you know that?

        Justin
        Oh yeah, I nearly forgot! We've come here to ask for your help...

        *** After Justin tells his story...

        Justin
        So that's why we're here.

        Jin
        O-ho! Came here for a pass to the new world, have ya? Well let me ask you
        something, why do you want to go to Elencia?

        Justin
        I'm going to travel to eastern Elencia and discover Enjule!

        Jin
        What the- Enjule!? Hah, hah, hah! That's rich! Ee, hee, hee, hee!

        Justin
        What's your problem!? It's no laughing matter! I'm serious!

        Jin
        Oh? Ah, *HACK*! Sorry, sorry... It's just that, well... Enjule...

        Justin
        It DOES exist! I know!

        Jin
        Hmm... I think I can understand your story. I guess I should give you a pass...

        Justin
        Really!? Thanks!

        Jin
        Gyaah, I'm not through!! I can't just give it to you for nothing! Ahem, if thou
        surmount the test I have put before thee, I will bestow upon thee what ye desire!
        Now then, that's how adventurers are supposed to do things!!!

        Justin
        Ow! My ears! W-well... ok, I'm ready for this test!

        Sue
        That's the spirit, Justin!

        Jin
        Yeah, kid, you've got to keep your spunk! Ah, *HACK*! Now then, let's get started!
        Follow me to the mines, and remember, no wimpering will be tolerated!

        AT THE ENTRANCE

        Jin
        This is the entrance to the Reck Mines. A bunch of ancient monsters have taken up
        residence in here, and their groaning and growlings sounds are keeping me up at
        night. I want you to exterminate the leader of the monsters. If you do it, I'll
        give you a pass. And thusly, I have bestowed a great test upon thee!

        Sue
        Yikes, that place is dark and creepy looking.

        Jin
        Ah, *HACK*! Of course it is! Well then, are you going to just run home now?

        Justin
        Are you kidding!? We're headin' in! You wait here, Jin!

        Jin
        Hmm... I wonder if I should let them go in. I'm not sure if they can handle it...
        Ah yes, well, are you heading in right now or are you going to rest first?

        *** 3 Choices
        1) Let me at them!
        2) No, we'll go inside in a little while.
        3) %%Save%%

        *** Defeat the boss within the mines.

        Sue
        We did it, Justin! Jin is certain to give us a pass now... W-what's going on!?

        Justin
        Ah! If we stick around here, we'll be buried! Let's get outta' here!

        *** Leave the boss's chamber.

        Jin
        What are you doing!? Over here... Get over here!

        Sue
        Oh! It's Jin!

        Jin
        Don't just stand there like an idiot! Come on! The mine's collapsing!

        *** After the escape.

        Jin
        You alright? Remember a world-class adventurer never gives up! You panicked under
        pressure and failed in noticing the escape route. You're hopeless!

        Sue
        Huh? You mean we failed? But we tried our very hardest!

        Jin
        Let me teach you something important; a true adventurer doesn't lose hope no
        matter what the circumstances! You must remember this lesson in Elencia!
        Furthermore, you must always try to maintain your devotion and...

        Justin
        Huh!? Jin, does that mean...

        Jin
        You two show great potential. Ah, and even if this turns out to be a wild goose
        chase you can always lie, eh? Here you go, the pass to the new world, Elencia.
        Take it, Justin.

        Justin
        Alright! Now we can go to Elencia!

        Sue
        Yay...! Um, cool! Hee, hee... Huh!? Am I imagining things or does something
        smell... odd?

        Jin
        Oh that's me. I'm so excited and happy I'm just soaking in sweat, blood, tears,
        and various other things I don't quite understand! E-hee-hee!

        Justin
        Eeeh!

        Sue
        Eek!

        Jin
        Alright, Justin, remember, you have wings, but those wings are for you alone.

        Justin
        Wings... for me alone...

        Jin
        But don't forget, during the hardest of times, an adventurer can't just depend on
        a pass. You have to trust your heart. That's because an adventurer's heart is his
        greatest strength. Now go forth! And just promise me one thing, Justin! I want you
        to return and tell me of places that I've never seen. I'll be waiting here for
        you!

        Justin
        I promise you, Jin! Well then, let's get going.

        Sue
        Thanks Jin! Wow, this is really great, Justin! Now let's go home. We can't be
        late!

        Justin
        Uh, Jin.. there's something I'd like to ask you...

        Jin
        It's about the little one, isn't it? Well there's only one thing I can say, you
        must walk this path alone, Justin... Got it?

        Sue
        What's the matter, Justin? Hurry up! Come on, let's go home!

        Justin
        Alright, alright... Thanks for the pass, Jin! It really means a lot to me.

        Jin
        Bye, Jin! Take care of yourself, okay?

        BACK AT THE TRAIN STATION

        Sue
        What's wrong, Justin? You've been keeping to yourself ever since we left Reck
        Mines.

        Justin
        R-Really? Don't worry, it's nothing.

        Sue
        Hey, I wonder what kind of place the new continent is? I betcha' it's fun and
        interesting!

        *** They move outside.

        Sue
        Wow! I can't believe we're both really going on an adventure! I'm sure everybody's
        going to be surprised. If we both leave though, Aunt Lily's going to be really
        sad.

        Justin
        Sue, please don't tell my mom anything about this.

        Sue
        Huh? What do you mean? I don't understand....

        Justin
        Jin said that from this point on, it's not fun and games anymore. You'll have to
        stay here, Sue.

        Sue
        What are you saying, Justin? Didn't we both promise that no matter what happens,
        we'll always stick together?

        Justin
        I've already made up my mind. I can't take a kid along with me!

        Sue
        ... ... ...!

        Justin
        The ship will be leaving tomorrow. I'm planning on leaving early so it's okay if
        you don't see me off.

        Sue
        I'm not a kid.... I'm not a kid! What's going on, Justin! You wouldn't even have
        gotten that ship pass if I didn't help you out!

        Justin
        Sue....

        Sue
        I don't know you! You can go ahead and die for all I care!!!

        *** Sue runs away.

        Justin
        I promise, Sue. Once I've become an adventurer, I'll come back. Then we can both
        go on an adventure together. What the-? 

        ***  Sue comes back to give Justin a little bit of love...

        Sue
        Justin!!! You rotten traitor!!! BAM!!!!!!!!!!

        Justin
        OWWWW!!!

        *** Head toward the Seagull Cafe.

        Gantz
        Hey, Justin! Just what the heck did you do now? I just saw Sue run by crying!

        Justin
        Gantz.... It was nothing... really....

        Gantz
        O-ho! So you had an argument, huh? I guess I'm going to be Sue's wife after all!

        Justin
        Please take good care of Sue.

        Gantz
        H-hey now... what's wrong with you Justin? You're starting to creep me out! I'd
        normally expect you to give me a challenge after I say something like that. Hmmm...
        now I get it....

        *** Talk to Lily.

        Lily
        Welcome home, Justin. Dinner's ready. I prepared your favorate dish today!

        *** 3 Choices
        1) I'm... I'm going to look around town some more...
        2) I'm ready to eat...
        3) %%Save%%

        *** Choose 1.

        Lily
        What's wrong Justin? Your usual response is an ectstatic "My favorate!? ALRIGHT!!"
        Ah... it looks like Sue isn't with you. Did you make her upset again, Justin? Oh
        well, I don't know what you guys argued about, but I'm sure that you're old enough
        to realize your mistakes. Alright then, let's go eat.

        *** AT DINNER

        *** Select Lily.

        Lily
        You know, it's been awhile since we just ate by ourselves. I guess this isn't too
        bad. Still, I'm kind of sad that Sue's not here. Hopefully, she'll be back
        tomorrow.

        Justin
        Don't worry, mom. Starting tomorrow, Sue's gonna be here everyday.... I'm sure....

        *** Select Lily again.

        Justin
        Oh, oh, this is just delicious! I don't think I've ever tasted anything so good
        since the day I was born!

        Lily
        A-ha-ha-ha! What an exaggeration! I've been cooking this for you the same way for
        years. Although, my cooking is one of my b points.

        Justin
        Err, well... but today it's especially delicous! Yeah, it's special today!

        Lily
        Uh huh... Boy, you're a strange child... Just when I thought I had you figured
        out...

        *** Select Lily.

        Justin
        Oh yeah, I nearly forgot. Mom, where are you storing all our photographs?

        Lily
        Photographs...? Oh, I think I put them in the drawer over there.

        Justin
        You put the one you took on my birthday over there too, right? The really
        cool-looking one where I'm brandishing a sword!

        Lily
        I think so... but why ask all of the sudden?

        *** Select Lily

        Lily
        Oh, by the way, the ship's leaving tomorrow. Are you going to see it?

        Justin
        Wha-wha-wha... *Gulp!* Why did you bring that up so suddenly?

        Lily
        Right now, you're just a kid, but when you get older, you'll start going on your
        own adventures....

        Justin
        ... ... ....

        Lily
        Hey, Justin. Do you want to sleep next to mommy tonight? It'll be just like when
        you were a kid!

        Justin
        What are you talking about, mom? I'm not a kid anymore! And I certainly can't
        sleep there tonight!

        Lily
        Ha-ha-ha! Calm down, Justin! Don't you think you're being a little harsh? Ah... that
        was funny... you made me laugh so hard I started to cry...

        Justin
        M-mom... I... actually tomorrow I....

        Lily
        ... I'm going to bed now, Justin. I'll just listen to what you have to say
        tomorrow....

        Justin
        Oh.... alright... Good night, mom...

        Lily
        Hurry up and go to bed, okay?

        *** THE NEXT MORNING

        Justin
        Hmm... time for me to get ready. I guess I won't be seeing this room for a while.
        Okay, I'm off!

        *** Go downstairs.

        Justin
        I'm sorry father... sorry that I didn't tell mom that I was leaving. It's just that
        I want to go the new continent so I can be just like you and grandfather. I want
        to have all kinds of adventures and travel around the world. I'm finally going to
        be an adventurer... just like you... and it's all thanks to this stone you gave me!
        Thanks to it, I now know that the ancient civilization of Enjule is in Elencia. I
        wonder if you felt this way at the dawn of your adventures... I wonder if I can
        ever be like you... You were so strong and brave.. A true adventurer... Wow, this
        sure isn't like me, huh? Hey dad, I'm going to hang my picture right here so
        everyone can see it. I'll be back to tell everyone about my adventures. Goodbye,
        mom! (Nails picture). Well then, I'm off.

        *** Go near the museum and talk to the curator.

        Curator
        Morning, Justin! My, you're up early! Having another contest with Gantz?

        Justin
        There's something I need to apologize to you about, Mr. Curator... I broke that
        Koyokujin image... I'm very sorry!

        Curator
        So it was you, Justin? Well, since you were so honest about it, I forgive you!
        Now, why are up so early today?

        Justin
        He, he, well I'm boarding the early ship to New Parm today! I'm going alone...

        *** Talk to the curator again.

        Curator
        That's rather sudden... If I was the average person I'd probably try to stop you
        here, but, well, when I was young I disobeyed my parents a lot too. It was because
        of my burning desire to become a great scholar!

        Justin
        Wow! You really mean you made your parents angry too?

        Curator
        Ha, ha, ha! Doesn't everyone?

        *** Talk to the curator.

        Curator
        So it's New Parm you going to, eh? I'd like to give you 2 bits of advice... Do the
        things you enjoy doing, and write to your mom all the time.

        Justin
        The first one's easy. I'll be adventuring! But it might be difficult to send a
        letter from the places I'll be adventuring in...

        ***  Talk to the curator.

        Curator
        Take care, Justin! I believe in you!

        Justin
        Thank you, Mr. Curator!

        PARM HARBOR

        ***  Talk to the soldier outside the gate.

        Soldier
        You again?! How many times have I told you that only ship passengers and guests
        are allowed in here?

        Justin
        Hey, I have a ship pass right here, see? It's authentic too.

        Soldier
        Hmm... this one looks really old. It has a weird smell to it too. Well then, once
        you go through this gate, you can't go back out. Do you understand?

        ***  2 Choices
        1) W-wait just a second!
        2) Of course! Now open the gate.

        ***  Choose 2

        Soldier
        I see.... You take care now, okay kid? Remember kid, don't drink any unclean-looking
        water. It'll ruin your stomach.

        Justin
        He, he, he... thanks sir. Don't worry about me. I'm no ordinary kid, I'm an
        adventurer.

        *** After walking inside aways.

        Soldier
        Well, it looks like all the passengers for this voyage are already here. I guess
        I'll be going over to the Sea Gull Café to have breakfast.

        *** Try to go inside the ship.

        Sailor
        Hey there kid, hold on a second!

        Justin
        Oh great! It looks like Jin's pass is too old.

        Sailor
        What's that sticking out of your pocket? Leave your stuff sticking out like that
        and it's bound to get stolen!

        Justin
        Huh? Oh, thanks. I wonder if I should open it now. Eh? It's a letter.

        Sailor
        Hey, your slowing us down. Keep blocking the way like that and you're gonna be
        thrown overboard!

        Justin
        You've got to be kidding! Okay, okay, I'm moving out of the way! (Opens letter)
        It's a letter... from mom.

        To Adventurer's Guild President, Mr. Gauss.
        >From Skull Lily
        Do NOT read JUSTIN!!!

        There's this kid who has always been of no help to his parents whatsoever and does
        nothing else every single day but play around, pretending that he's an adventurer.
        He always comes home with cuts and bruises no matter how many times I hit him
        upside the head. This bad kid is my son.

        I still remember how much he cried, the day he realized that he'll never see his
        father again. Ever since that day, he's always wanted to be an adventurer. Anyway,
        this adventurer's name is Justin. He's a little bit too kind sometimes and is also
        very absent-minded. However, he has now finally started walking on his own two
        feet. He is really determined to work hard to follow his dream but he still can't
        do any manual labor. That's why I'm begging you to please take care of him. This
        kid is my son, Mr. Gauss. Please help him fulfill his dream.

        Justin
        Mom... she knew all along.

        Hey Justin! Knowing you, you're probably reading this letter without my
        permission! I've always expected you to eventually mature even just a little bit
        but it doesn't look like you've changed a bit. Make sure that you take care of
        your body. You're dad used to always say,"An adventurer's greatest asset is to
        have a healthy body." And one last thing... wherever you may go, always keep on
        thinking about your dream. Have a safe trip, Justin.

        Sailor
        Hey! What the heck are you doing?! You're the only one that we're waiting for! Get
        in! Get in!

        Justin
        Thank you, mother.... Well, I'll be on my way.

                             Towards Elencia...


      AFTER BOARDING

      Justin
      Now, let's have a look around this ship.

      *** Go inside room in center of nearby building, talk to the captain.

      Captain
      Ah, welcome aboard! Anything I can do for you?

      Justin
      He, he. No, I don't think so. Boy, this is a really cool ship!

      Captain
      Ha, ha, ha! Thanks.

      *** After exploring the ship for a while, attempt to return to the
      deck.

      Pooy
      Puu, puu...

      Justin
      W-what's Pooy doing here!? No, it can't be...

      ON DECK

      Sue
      Geez, guys! Just exactly how many times do you want me to keep
      repeating the same thing over and over!? I'm supposed to be here
      with Justin!

      Justin
      I knew it! It's Sue!

      *** Talk to Sue.

      Sue
      ...oh! There you are Justin!

      Justin
      Sue! What are you doing!?

      Sue
      With you gone, Parm's going to be so boring! That's why I decided
      to go with you on your journey. Besides, can you really do without
      me?

      *** Talk to the Captain.

      Captain
      You're Justin? You've perpetrated a truly heinous deed, and at such
      a young age no less... But since ancient times, we've dealt with
      stowaways by casting them overboard. Why, it's the Law of the
      Ocean!

      Justin
      Please forgive her! She's just a kid! I'll take care of her...

      Captain
      It's no good! If we don't abide by the Law of the Ocean, we'll all
      be cursed by the spirits! Okay men, up with this barrel! We're
      tossing it into the sea!

      Justin
      Aaah!!! Hey, wait a sec!!

      *** Talk to Sue.

      Sue
      They shouldn't be so stingy! I know they can afford to let one more
      person on board! Come on, tell them that Justin!

      Justin
      They just won't listen... Sue, you've really done it this time!

      *** Talk to the Captain.

      Justin
      Casting a little girl like her out to sea is just too much! You've
      gotta' figure out a way to save her from this fate!

      Captain
      Actually, there may be a way... I heard from the little one that
      you're going to become an adventurer. Is that right?

      Justin
      Ah yep, that's right! I'll be the greatest adventurer in the world!

      Sue
      Me too! Me too!

      Captain
      Hmm... Adventurers tend to be very similar to sailors, so the
      sprits might not curse us... Hmm... Oh, I've got it! You'll become
      part of the crew!

      Justin
      Huh?

      Captain
      Yes, if you're passengers, you're stowaways, but if you're
      shipmates, you certainly wouldn't be. Well then, how about it? Will
      you work for us until we reach the new world? That way, you can
      save this little girl

      *** 2 Choices
      1) Is that so? Well, I don't know if I can trust you.
      2) Ok. I guess we're shipmates then.

      *** Choose 2

      Captain
      That settles it then. From this point on, you're an apprentice
      sailor, alright?

      Justin
      Got it!

      Sue
      Well, as long as I'm with Justin, I don't mind being a crew member!

      Captain
      ... Alright then, you there! Take these fellows to the crewmen's
      quarters.

      Sailor
      Aye aye, Captain!

      Captain
      Get plenty of rest, you two. From tommorrow onward, you'll be
      working hard.

      2ND DAY

      Voice
      Justin, Justin!

      Sue
      Morning, Justin. Did you sleep well?

      Justin
      Yaaawn! No, I couldn't sleep at all. The snoring of the other
      sailors kept me awake...

      Sue
      Well, I'm also sleeeeepy... That bed was so hard and wet, and it
      felt simply horrible! And, what's more...

      Sailor
      Huh!? Attention, new recruits!! Quit sleeping the day away and get
      ready to work!!

      Justin
      Welp, shall we go?

      *** Talk to the sailor near your bed.

      Sailor
      Now listen up, new recruits! You used to be passengers, but now
      your apprentice sailors! And don't you forget it!

      Justin
      Got it!

      Sue
      Okayee!

      Sailor
      Alright, you two have been assigned to the deck. You'll get the
      details of your work up there. Oh yeah, and take this with you.

      *** You receive the key to the private cabins.

      Sailor
      Now then, if the passengers want anything you'd better serve them
      properly, got it? Alright, now get yourselves up to the deck!

      *** Talk to the man in the purple hat on the deck.

      Officer
      Ah, so you're the new apprentices, Justin and Sue. I see you came
      before I had to come get you. I like that. Ok, you may have already
      been told this, but all the newcomers on the ship are assigned to
      swabbing the deck. Now let's get right down to business, I want you
      to wax and polish this entire deck. Let me know when you're ready
      to begin.

      *** Talk to the officer again.

      Officer
      Ready? Before we begin, are sure you know how to do this type of
      work?

      *** 2 Choices
      1) No, tell me how it's done.
      2) Yeah, I know. I'm ready to start.

      *** Choose 1

      Officer
      Power and speed are important in swabbing the deck. To begin
      swabbing press the "c" button. While you're holding the "c" button,
      your power and speed will increase. But be careful not to hold down
      for too long, or your power meter will become too high, and you'll
      get exhausted. The trick to it is to properly pace yourself. Also
      remember that you might get award if you do well, so try not to do
      a shoddy job.

      *** Choose 2 and attempt the minigame, this is the officer's response
      if you take over 70 seconds.

      Man
      Hey, hey!! Just what do you think you're doing taking your time
      like that!? And to think, you're supposed to be some adventurer! If
      you do this poorly tomorrow, you're fired, and I'll personally toss
      both of you into the ocean! DO YOU UNDERSTAND!?

      Justin
      Hey, it was our first try. We'll do much better from now on!

      *** Talk to the officer again.

      Officer
      Today's work is finished, you can go back to your rooms and get
      some sleep. Unless of course you want to get some more practice
      swabbing the deck?

      *** 2 Choices
      1) Uh, I think I'll have to take a rain check on that.
      2) I can take it!

      *** Choose 2

      Officer
      Ho ho! What dedication! Then have another go at it!

      *** Go back to your quarters and talk to the sailor again

      Sailor
      Looks like you're finished. Ha, ha! I can tell by the tired look on
      your face. Now you can relax and get some sleep.

      3RD DAY

      Sue
      ... Ow, ow, ow! Owww! I'm aching all over!

      Justin
      It's just some muscular pain, Sue! Don't worry, you'll get used to
      it! Since you're in pain, I'll try to handle most of the work
      today.

      Sue
      Thanks, Justin!

      *** Return to the deck and talk to the officer.

      Officer
      Ready? Let's get started. You do remember how to do this work, don'
      t you?

      *** 2 Choices
      1) Umm, I forgot.
      2) Let's go.

      *** Choose 2, this is his response if you finish the game around 55
      seconds.

      Man
      Alright, looks as though we're through for today. Try to do it a
      little faster tomorrow.

      Justin
      Ugh, we have to do this every single day until we reach New Parm?
      Erggh... and it's all your fault, Sue!

      Sue
      Hey! You know this never would have happened if you didn't try to
      leave me behind!

      *** Attempt to return to your quarters.

      Man
      Ok, let's see here... I polished the lens up, and the light has
      been delievered safely...

      Justin
      Hey, hey, what's that for!? What a huge light!

      Man
      You don't know? Well, it's used to signal adventurers on shore. We
      use something like this all the time! You know, another passenger
      will be boarding soon, and, well... We've got to let the fellow
      know we're coming.

      Sue
      ...Someone's boarding!? Out here in the middle of the ocean?!

      Man
      That's right! I bet you'll be surprised when you hear this. The
      passenger happens to be the greatest adventurer in New Parm.

      Justin
      Wow, an adventurer!?

      Man
      This fellow's boarding early tomorrow morning, so don't sleep in!

      Justin
      This is unbelievable! The greatest adventurer in New Parm...

      THAT NIGHT

      Justin
      Hey Sue! What do you think the greatest adventurer in New Parm will
      be like? Well he's a great adventurer, so I bet he's a huge man
      with a beard and rippling muscles!

      Sue
      Mmurmr, mmmum... Yes, yes, surely, and he'll have 5 armmms, mmurmr,
      murmm...

      Justin
      Hey! You're half asleep... Anyway, when I do meet this adventurer,
      I wonder what I'll ask him? Maybe I should find out how he gets by
      dangerous traps, or ask him what the weak points of ferocious
      monsters are... He, he, I don't think I'm gonna get any sleep
      tonight!

      THE 4TH DAY

      Voice
      ... Justin! Jusitn!! You'll be sorry if you don't get up soon! Hey,
      Justin, wake up!

      Justin
      Ooh, mmm, just... just 10 more seconds...

      Sue
      Whaaat are you talking about, Justin!? You're not supposed to sleep
      late because that adventurer is coming!

      Justin
      .......!

      *** Runs to the stairs.

      Justin
      Hey, what are you doing, Sue!? If you don't hurry up, I'll leave
      without you!

      Sue
      ... Huh? Well, at least he's awake now.

      *** Go upstairs.

      Sailor
      ... Ya, yaa! How's this? Oh yeah!

      Sue
      Hey, what do you think he's doing?

      Justin
      How weird! He looks like an idiot!

      Justin
      Hey you! What're you doing?

      Sailor
      Oh, this...? This a hip way for sailors and adventurers to greet
      each other. You'll do it when you're older.

      Justin
      Hey, is that so? Then I'd better master it now.

      *** They practice it.

      Sailor
      No, no, no! Like this!

      Justin
      L-like this? Yeah, this is cool!

      Sue
      Boy... They just look like idiots.

      Sailor
      Yeh! You've got good form, kid!

      *** Go to the very end of the deck. (note: speech segment translation
      pending)

      Feena
      Hey! Who are you two? I haven't seen you before.

      Justin
      Err, ahem, I, I'm Justi...

      Sue
      Wow! A girl!? The greatest adventurer in the new world is a girl!
      Coool! Hey, she's also beautiful. Don't you think so, Justin?!

      Feena
      He, he. Thank you. Captain, could you introduce these two to me?

      Captain
      Yes, yes, this is the first time you've met. These fellows are
      apprentice sailors. This one is Justin... and here's Sue.

      Feena
      Hmm... I'm Feena, pleased to meet you!

      Sue
      Hey, hey, Justin! Raise your hand and do that special greeting!

      Justin
      Ok! It's a good thing I was just practicting.

      *** Starts flailing his arm.

      Justin
      I'm... Justin!! Please to meet you!

      Feena
      ...!

      *** Shakes his hand.

      Feena
      Aha, ha, ha, don't you know? This real adventurers and sailors use
      to greet each other. Well, yes, for right now let's
      han-nnd-shay-kk! When you're promoted, we'll high five.

      Captain
      ...Well, shall we go, Feena? Justin, you know what they say about
      idle hands...

      Feena
      Good luck with your work, you two. Then... let's go, Captain.

      Justin
      Man! I wish people would treat me like I was just another person,
      instead of a little kid...

      Sue
      But wasn't that cool!? I want to be just like her.

      Justin
      The greatest adventurer in the new world, huh...? She certainly was
      cute...

      THE 5TH DAY

      Sue
      Ohhh, how boring! Yet another day of swabbing the deck!

      Justin
      Hey, what are you talking about, Sue!? It's better than being cast
      out into the ocean, isn't it!? That's all thanks to me, you know!?

      Sue
      ... Huh!? It's clean? Who did this for us?

      Voice
      Hey you! You're late! You're late!

      Feena
      You'll never be real sailors if you oversleep like that! Oh well,
      morning, Justin and Sue! Looks to be another hot day today.

      Justin
      Hey, you remember our names? I thought you weren't even paying
      attention to us...

      Feena
      Well, the memory of great adventurers is legendary! Anyway, I just
      thought we could talk and clean this deck together... but you never
      came. You know, you've got a long ways to go before you become a
      real sailor.

      Justin
      Hey, that's pretty harsh... Anyway, I'm an adventurer not a sailor!

      Feena
      Adventurer, huh? The captain said you were apprentice sailors.

      Justin
      Oh, well I'm hiding my identity right now! There is a very
      important reason behind it. You see, Sue...

      Sue
      What do you think you're doing!? Hey, you're gonna get me tossed
      overboard!

      Feena
      Tossed?

      Sue
      Yeah, yeah, listen, Feena! Justin was really mean to me and...

      *** Later

      Justin
      ... and that's what happened. See, wasn't that a spectacular
      adventure?

      Sue
      See!? Now do you understand why I said Justin was so mean?

      Feena
      Ah, ha, ha! Well, I can see that you're really good friends! Ha,
      ha, ha... that's funny! I haven't laughed that hard in a long time!

      Sue
      Ok, ok, Feena, tell us your story! I'm sure we're not the only ones
      with a clever story!

      Feena
      Hmm, right... So what should I talk about?

      *** 3 Choices
      1) What type of adventures do you go on?
      2) Boy, I'd like to have some adventures in the new world...
      3) Feena, do you live in New Parm?

      *** Choose 1

      Feena
      Hmm, I guess I can't tell you all about that in one sitting. Since,
      it's still several days before we reach New Parm, I'll tell you a
      little about my adventures everyday!

      Justin
      Ugh, that means we're going to be swabbing the decks for a long
      time... Shoot! Being an apprentice is such a pain!

      Feena
      Aha, ha, ha! Oh, it won't be so bad! I'll help you! It'll be fun!

      Sue
      Wow! Thanks, Feena!

      *** Choose 2

      Feena
      So, you want to be the greatest adventurer in the world, huh?

      Sue
      We're going to the adventurers' society in New Parm. Have you
      joined it, Feena?

      Feena
      Ye... yes... Of course I've joined.

      Feena
      .... That's right... We'll should go adventuring together, it would
      be lots of fun!

      *** Choose 3

      Feena
      Where I live? Yeah, it's right near New Parm. It's a nice place,
      and I live there by myself.

      Sue
      By yourself? That's great! Isn't that wonderful, Justin?

      Feena
      My parents died a long time ago. I used to live with my older
      sister, but... now we live seperately.

      *** After choosing all 3 choices...

      Feena
      .... The wind... all of the seagulls suddenly... I... I'm going to
      talk to the captain right now. You should go back to your sleeping
      quarters. Bye!

      Justin
      Hmm, she was laughing just a second ago, and then she suddenly
      became so grave and serious... I wonder what happened?

      Sue
      Hey, look! There's not a single seagull in the sky anymore!

      Justin
      That's right... Somehow I have a feeling that something exciting is
      about to happen! Let's go check it out!

      *** Go inside the captain's room...

      Feena
      ... Captain! The winds have changed, the ocean has become
      turbulent, and strange clouds are beginning to form.....

      Captain
      This is terrible. We must act quickly. We should begin gathering
      the crew together right away...

      Feena
      Somehow... I have a terrible feeling about all this.

      Justin
      Feena, what's going on!?

      Feena
      Nothing. Now don't worry about a thing, you two. Please, just go
      back to the crew quarters and relax, ok?

      Sue
      Justin, let's go back to our room. It looks like they're doing
      something important.

      Feena
      Captain, we must do all we can to change directions. Quickly,
      summon the crew together!

      Captain
      ... But, Feena... you don't suppose it's that ghost ship that's
      rumored to exist? Perhaps that's what your terrible feeling is
      about.

      Feena
      Now bring that up again! The ghost ship is nothing but a ridiculous
      superstition!

      Justin
      Hey, a ghost ship!? Tell me more!

      Feena
      Justin, did you hear me? I thought I told you to go to your
      quarters and rest.

      Justin
      Hey, do you think you can boss me around?

      Feena
      Justin, this isn't some childish game. Be a good boy and do as I
      say.

      Sailor
      Ms. Feena... It's... it's horrible! Come to the deck right away!!

      Justin and Feena
      !

      Feena
      Captain, I'm going to try to calmly inform the crew of this, and
      order them to mobilize. The passengers are probably getting
      nervous....

      Captain
      Nooo, this can't be happening!! If this is the real ghost ship,
      we're doomed, doomed I tell you!!

      Sue
      Justin, come on, let's go back to our room...

      Justin
      We can't go back! Seems like a great adventure is brewing. Let's
      head to the deck!

      *** Head to the deck.

      Sue
      Justin, wait up!!

      Justin
      Unbelievable! It is the real ghost ship! Simply unbelievable!

      Sue
      Wow...... Uh, I have a feeling we should leave now..

      Justin
      Yeah, we're heading in! My true adventures shall begin with the
      total extermination of the ghost ship!

      Voice
      How pitiful! Are there any real sailors on this ship?!

      Sue
      Oh, that's Feena's voice!

      Sue
      Over here, Justin!

      *** Go over there.

      Feena
      Now one thing is clear... If we don't do anything about this
      mysterious vessel, we'll never arrive in Elencia alive! Why, the
      lives of the passengers are at stake! Men, show me your true
      sailing spirit! Captain, their orders please?

      Captain
      ... It's no good, no good! We're already doomed! The ghost ship has
      appeared, and now we're all gonna die!!

      Feena
      It's nothing but a ruined ship! The ghost ship is merely a
      superstition. Now, rally your crew!

      Captain
      But, but... when that ship appeared... the engine stopped...

      Feena
      Snap out of it!! If you can't control yourself, you're nothing but
      a bushel of spineless seaweed!

      Crew
      Bu-but Feeenaaa.... what can we do? I mean, we're facing the ghost
      ship here.. and aren't we just sailors? And if our ship can't move,
      what can we really do...?

      Feena
      Don't say such pathetic things!! Are you not men of the sea....!?

      *** No response

      Feena
      Well, looks like I'll have to solve the riddle of this ship myself.
      Now then! Who will accompany me in the task of exploring this
      ship:? Are there no valorous men among you?

      *** Talk to Feena

      Justin
      Don't worry, Feena! We'll go with you!

      Feena
      Justin...

      *** Resumes speaking to the crew.

      Feena
      So everyone, these children are the only displaying any valor! Are
      there any heroes among you that will come with me?!

      Justin
      Hey! I said I'd go with you! I'm going to exterminate that ghost
      ship!

      Feena
      Exteriminate a ghost ship!? What a ridiculous idea! A real
      adventurer wouldn't believe in ghosts, and you certainly aren't a
      real adventurer.

      *** To the crew.

      Feena
      Justin is going to calmly and obediently wait aboard this ship.

      *** 3 Choices
      1) Well, if I don't go, who's going with you!?
      2) I'm worried about you, Feena.
      3. Rather clever of you to obtain such a monopoly on all the
      adventures on this ship.

      *** Choose 1

      Justin
      If I don't go, who's going with you!? Besides this an adventure,
      and I'm an adventurer!

      Feena
      But do you really understand this situation? I don't even if know
      if you'll be of any use to me! You'll proably just slow me down...
      I'm sure of it!

      *** Choose 2

      Justin
      I'm worried about you, Feena. I can't just let a little girl go off
      into that frightening ship...

      Feena
      .... A little girl!? How rude! Why, I'm a professional adventurer,
      and an amateur adventurer like yourself need not worry about me! I
      can take care of myself!

      *** Choose 3

      Justin
      So, we finally get the chance to do something exciting on this
      ship, and you try to keep the fun all to yourself!

      Feena
      Justin, stop thinking like such a simpleton! Adventuring is not a
      game. You could be killed. And furthermore, thinking of it in that
      way reveals your total lack of experience!

      Justin
      That's it! I'll just take care of this myself!

      Sue
      Huh!? B-but...

      Feena
      Well... this is troubling...

      Sailor
      Feena, as per your orders, I've prepared a way for you to cross
      over into the ghost ship.

      Feena
      In that case, there's no time to lose... Oh alright, Justin, you
      can come with me! But promise me you'll return to the ship if you
      find you can't handle this, alright?

      Justin
      Alright! I promise!

      Feena
      Then let's get going !

              The Investigation



     AFTER BOARDING THE GHOST SHIP

     Justin
     This is cool! I can't believe we're on a real ghost ship.

     Feena
     How many times do I have to say it!? Ghost ships aren't real!

     Justin
     Oh, come on! I know you've never seen anything like this!

     Sue
     Uh, Justin, how are we going to get down from here?

     Justin
     How? Why, like this!

     Justin leaps down.

     Feena
     Errg, that boy...

     Sue
     Justin, wait for us!

     *** Sue and Feena jump down.

     Justin
     Ooh... Heh, heh! Boy, I'm excited!

     Feena
     Calm down! You're not concentrating!

     Justin
     Sorry, sorry. But my adventuring blood stirs, and I can't help it.
     Heh, heh.

     *** Go near the circular hole in the ship.

     Feena
     Looks like we can jump down to the lower part of the ship from here...
     I'll go first, then you follow.

     *** They all jump down.

     Sue
     Hey, it's pitch black in here. I can't see a thing.

     Feena
     Ok, you both made it.. Stay alert, and watch your step.

     Justin
     No need to tell me. I'm a world-class adventurer, I'm always prepared!
     What's this...? Feels strange...

     Feena
     Ahh! Justin, you pervert! (slap!)

     Justin
     Ahhhhhhowwwww!!!

     Feena
     Ugh! Justin, stop goofing around!

     Justin
     Hey! So, I'm just following behind, minding my own business... and you
     then suddenly stop moving! How am I at fault!? Where was I goofing
     around!?

     Feena
     Justin, you weirdo, don't you know?! Oh, forget it. Let's move on

     Sue
     Justin, you naughty boy!

     *** Walk around the corner into a room, walk through that room until you
     reach a hole in the floor.

     Feena
     We can jump down to a lower area of the ship from here too.

     *** Jump down, walk to a rope, and climb up. Then, walk up steps to some
     meat.

     Feena
     Justin, look out!

     Feena
     Justin, are you alright? Were you injured?

     Sue
     Wow, Feena! That was cool! Boy, Justin seems so incompetent compared
     to you.

     Justin
     Hey! So I was a little unprepared for that, no big deal!

     *** Solve the lever puzzle, go through the next room, go upstairs, and,
     finally, go near the shut door closest to the stairs.

     Justin
     This door is locked... Hmm... I can't open it.

     Feena
     Hey, let me try... There! It's open.

     Sue
     Wow, Feena can do anything!

     *** Go to other shut door.

     Feena
     Stay alert! I've got another bad feeling... A feeling like an animal
     is stalking us.

     Justin
     But, Feena, this is a ghost ship! Why would animals be here?

     Feena
     Justin... I know there's one near here.

     Justin
     Huh? Right near here...? You're not talking about me are you!?

     Feena
     Justin... unless you start paying closer attention to what's going on,
     you're life will be in perpetual danger.

     *** Go inside and look at the book on the desk.

     Justin
     Uh, what's this?

     Feena
     .... it looks like the ship's log. Perhaps this could help understand
     what happened to this ship. I think I'll read through some of it. "Our
     ship was suddenly snatched by a giant tenticle, and then, before we
     knew it, we were drawn into a battle to the death. Unless we defeat
     this accursed monster, we will never see the sight of land again." ...
     Then it ends.

     Sue
     A "monster"? I wonder what it's like...

     Feena
     Shh! Quiet... I sense something! Get ready!

     *** A monster appears.

     Feena
     Watch out!! It's the monster!

     *** After killing the octopus beast...

     Justin
     So this ship was attacked by that monster...?

     Feena
     Yes, that must be it... That beast probably devoured all the people
     aboard this ship...

     Justin
     Woah, woah, woah! What's happening?!

     Feena
     Oh no! The ship is sinking! Justin, we've got to get out of here! If
     the ship capsizes, we're done for!

     *** Go to the upper deck.

     Sue
     Wha-what should we do!? The water is already up here..

     Feena
     We're alright! Just leave everything to me. World-class adventurers
     are always prepared with an escape plan.

     *** Feena brings down a rope.

     Feena
     Now hurry! Climb up this rope!

     BACK ON BOARD THE FERRY BOAT.

     Sailors
     ... Hurrah, hurrah! You're back! We were so worried about you!

     Justin
     No need to worry. Why, that ship was a lot easier than swabbing the
     deck!

     Sailor
     Wow, really!? Oh yeah, the ship should start moving again soon.
     Engineers are working to repair the engine as we speak.

     Justin
     Really? That's great! So I guess that squid stopped the ship, huh?
     What an awful beast.

     Feena
     Well, didn't I tell you? It wasn't ghosts at all, right, Captain?

     Captain
     Right again, Feena! Now we're back on course to Elencia, safe and
     sound. I'm greatly indebted to you...

     Feena
     Captain! I had help you know! You must thank Justin and Sue too! Only
     our combined strength could destroy that horrible ship.

     Captain
     Is that so? Well... I guess I didn't really think you two fellows had
     what it takes...

     Feena
     Well, to be honest with you... I didn't think so either... but you did
     great! For your first adventure, I give you a 100 out of 100, perfect
     score!

     Feena
     You're pretty cool, Justin.

     Justin
     Eh, hehe... well it wasn't... somehow, I feel so awkward...

     Sue
     Hey, Justin! Why's your face all red?

     Pooy
     Puu, puu!

     Justin
     Huh, what're you talking about, Sue!?

     Sue
     Aha, ha, ha!

     *** Back to the crew quarters. Talk to the sailor near your bed.

     Sailor
     You two did a great deed today! I have a totally different opinion of
     you guys now! Why, you weren't just boasting when you said you were an
     adventurer, were you? Anyway, you probably want to just get to bed
     now. The ship is safe now, thanks to you, so you can sleep without
     worry.

     *** 3 Choices
     1) I want to stay up and talk with the passengers a little more.
     2) I'm going to bed now.
     3) %%%Data Save%%%%

     *** Choose 1

     Sailor
     Really? Well don't overexert yourselves. Sleeping is one of the most
     enjoyable parts of this job, you know?

     *** Choose 2

     Sailor
     Well, have a nice night. You'll resume swabbing the deck tomorrow.

     Sue
     Whaaat? Back to swabbing the deck? I thought we were the saviors of
     this ship!

     Sailor
     Well, you are, but you're apprentice sailors too, and apprentice
     sailors have to swab the deck. Alright, now to bed with you!

     THE NEXT DAY

     Sue
     Justiiiin, good morning... *sigh* Let's goooo swab the deck...

     *** Head toward the deck.

     Officer
     ... Hmm? Justin, Sue, did you come to swab the deck? I'm very sorry
     about this, but... you've been fired! No more swabbing the deck for
     you two...

     Justin
     F-fired? Why?

     Sue
     No! How could you?! We've been so dilligent in doing our work!

     Officer
     Aha, ha, ha, ha! Don't be so upset! Now listen to me. We've arrived in
     the new world, Elencia! This voyage is finally over!

     Justin
     Really!?

     Officer
     Aha, ha, ha! Well go up and see for yourself!

     Don't just stand there! Go up!

     Sue
     Justin, what is it?

     Justin
     I can see it! Over there!!

     Sue
     Oh!? Wait up, Justin!

     *** They run to the end of the ship.

     Sue
     Wow! It's huge, just think of all the adventures we could have in a
     place that big!

     Pooy
     Puu, puuu!

     Sue
     Don't worry, Pooy, I'm sure this continent has food on it! Uh, Justin,
     are you awake?

     Justin
     The new world... We finally made it..

     Feena
     Morning, Justin, Sue!

     Sue
     Oh, hi Feena!

     Feena
     Hm... it's been a long time..

     *** Looks at Justin and Sue.

     Feena
     ... I see, this must be the first time you've seen the new world...
     Well, a big welcome to the both of you! Welcome to New Parm! Welcome
     to the land of your hopes and dreams, Elencia!

     Justin
     Land of... hopes and dreams...

     Feena
     ... That's right, your dreams will surely come true here, Justin..!

     Sue
     Hey, Justin! We've gotta get ready to get off the ship!

     Feena
     Tell me when you're ready to disembark! We'll go together!

     *** Talk to the captain.

     Captain
     Justin, Sue... you two gave it your best on this ship. You were hard
     working sailors, and were great adventurers as well. Now try to keep
     this up in the new world!

     Justin
     Aye, Captain! I'll try my best!

     Sue
     As long as we don't get cast into the sea, I think we're okay.

     *** Talk to the captain again.

     Captain
     And Sue, you do know that if you hadn't stowed away, Justin could have
     stayed a passenger for the entire voyage, don't you?

     Sue
     Yes, I understand!

     Justin
     Yeah, but it all turned out ok. I had a good experience.

     Sue
     I guess it was a good idea to sneak on board after all!

     *** Talk to Feena again.

     Feena
     So, are you two ready?

     *** 2 Choices
     1) Sorry! There are still people left I have to say goodbye to.
     2) Oh, of course!

     *** Choose 1

     Feena
     He, he... That's just like you to make so many friends in such a short
     span of time!

     *** Choose 2

     Feena
     Alright! We're finally going to set foot on New Parm!

       The Adventurers' Society



      NEW PARM HARBOR

      Justin
      Yeah! Yahoo!

      Sue
      Yay! We're the first ones off! Wow! So we really made it all the
      way to the new world by ourselves! 
      Justin
      Yeah! And now I can finally begin my great adventure!

      Pooy
      Pupuu! Puupuu!

      Feena
      Aha, ha, ha. You two certainly are excited about all this... So,
      Justin, what do you plan to do now that you're here?

      Justin
      Well, first of all, I'm going to the adventurers' society here. My
      mom gave me a letter so that I can get in.

      Feena
      Really? The adventurers' society, huh? Now how can I put this... I
      guess this where we part ways.

      Sue
      Huh!? Feena, you're not coming with us?

      Feena
      I'm sorry. I can't. I'm leaving New Parm for my house at the end of
      the Meril mountain trail. If you'd like, you could come visit me
      there!

      Justin
      Oh! We'll go as soon we check out New Parm!

      Sue
      Bye, Feena!

      Feena
      Ah, wait!!

      Justin
      W-what's wrong, Feena?

      Feena
      Eheh, heh, heh. I almost forgot something important. Now Justin,
      raise your hand.

      Justin
      Wha!? Why...?

      Feena
      Don't worry! Just raise it! Come on, hurry up!!

      *** Justin raises his hand.

      Feena
      Hmm... let's see here... Like this...? Yes, that's it!

      *** They do a high-five.

      Justin
      Feena...!

      Sue
      Hey, it's that special adventurer greeting! Great work, Justin!

      Feena
      He, he... I think you have what it takes to be an adventurer,
      Justin. I'd like to adventure with you again sometime! Then,
      farewell for now! May the spirits protect you during your great
      adventures!

      *** Go inside the building (adventurers' society information desk) in
      the harbor area. Talk to the man behind the desk.

      Clerk
      Yawn... mmm, I'm so sleepy today... I wonder if I'd get paid if I
      slept all day..? Huh? What's your business here?

      Justin
      What's my business? I just came here to become an adventurer.

      Clerk
      Oh boy... Well you have to follow the standard procedure. Go to the
      plaza in the center of town, our main office is there.. Yawn.

      CENTRAL NEW PARM

      *** Go to the adventurers' society in the center of town (it's heavily
      decorated) Talk to woman at desk.

      Receptionist
      Welcome, come on in! What kind of adventure do you wish to go on?
      We here at the adventurers' society are prepared to send you on an
      adventure that will satisfy your demanding standards!

      Justin
      Prepared an adventure? I don't quite understand what you mean...
      Oh, I see! We want to go to Alent! The center of the Enjule
      civilization!

      Receptionist
      Alent of the Enjule civilization? I'm afraid we don't have a tour
      to Alent prepared. There is a ruin of Enjule to the far south of
      here...

      Justin
      Really!? Well, maybe I'll find a way to Alent if I go there! So how
      do I get there?

      Receptionist
      I'm very sorry but, a tour to Domu would be dangerous, and we don't
      handle dangerous tours for our customer's sake.

      Justin
      You won't go if it's dangerous... An adventure isn't an adventure
      unless it's dangerous!

      *** Talk to her again.

      Receptionist
      Perhaps you'd like to become an adventurer...? Well, why didn't you
      say so? To become a member of the adventurers' society you have to
      get the chairman's permission. He's in the room behind me.

      Justin
      If I become a member, will someone help me get to Domu?

      Receptionist
      Why, nobody travels to Domu, but we will give you a map of the new
      world if you become an adventurer, so you can get there yourself.

      *** Try to go in the room behind her.

      Voice
      If you want to enter the chairman's room, tell me the password! You
      can't enter unless you get it righty-o, oh, oh!

      Justin
      The password!?

      *** Talk to the receptionist again.

      Receptionist
      Oh yes, oh yes... If someone asks you the password say, "I'm the
      servant of the great Pakon, oh!" Got it?

      Justin
      The great Pakon...? My mom's letter was addressed to someone named
      Gaus...

      Receptionist
      The chairman's room is over there, ok? The meaning of that password
      is a private matter.

      *** Try to go in the room again.

      Voice
      If you want to enter the chairman's room, tell me the password! You
      can't enter unless you get it righty-o, oh, oh!

      *** 3 Choices
      1) The great Pakon is the most handsome guy in town, oh!
      2) I'm the servant of the great Pakon, oh!
      3) We all yearn for the great Pakon, oh!

      *** Choose 1 or 3

      Voice
      Hoo, hoooo! That's true, that's true! But I'm afraid it's not the
      password, so you can't enter-o, oh, oh!

      *** Choose 2

      Voice
      Bingo! Feel free to enter-o, oh, ohhhhh!

      *** Talk to man behind desk.

      Pakon
      I'm the Pakon, the chairman of the adventurers' society-o, oh, oh!
      What's your business here?

      Justin
      Ehh!! You're the chairman!? Now way! I was certain the chairman was
      named Gaus!

      Pakon
      My father, Gaus, died a long, long time ago. I'm the chairman
      now-o, oh, oh, oh!

      Justin
      Hmm... So that explains it...

      Sue
      Justin, just tell him you want to join the society!

      Justin
      Hmm... Well, if Gaus is dead, I guess I have no choice. I have to
      ask this dweeb... Alright, we want to join the society. What do we
      have to do?

      Pakon
      We have the adventurers we can handle right now-o, oh, oh. You're
      out of luck unless you can convince one of the other adventurer's
      to hand over his adventuring pass-o, oh, oh.

      Justin
      Now wait just a second! Look at this, you! This is letter from my
      mom introducing me to Gaus! My father was an adventurer too. He
      knew your father...

      Pakon
      Hehh, hehh... So that's it... heh? You think you can get an
      adventuring pass that easily, heh? Well I'm the one who decides
      whether you get a pass or not-o, oh, oh! How 'bout if I just toss
      this little scrap of paper away...? What do ya think of that?

      *** Talk to him again.

      Pakon
      This little scrap of paper is a new pass I made after becoming
      chairman-o, oh, oh! Nice, huh?

      Justin
      What, what is that!? Feena's picture is on the front, and there's
      something pink...

      Sue
      Yes, I can see that!

      Pakon
      Feena looks so cute on the front-o, oh, oh! Feena is the best
      adventurer here... I'm engaged to her-o, oh, oh! We'll make such a
      cute couple, and we'll be married very soon-o, oh, oh!

      Justin
      Is that true!? How could Feena marry a weirdo like you!?

      Pakon
      H-h-how could you say such a rude thing!? Now I'll never let you
      enter the society-o, oh, oh...

      *** Talk to him again.

      Pakon
      Hey, don't forget that you're my servant, you cheeky boy.

      Justin
      What do you mean, your servant!? I don't remember being made your
      servant!

      Pakon
      No, no, when you entered here you said it-o, oh, oh! You said "I'm
      the servant of the great Pakon, oh!"

      Justin
      Uh, I guess I did...

      *** Talk to him again.

      Pakon
      I'll never let a rude guy like you enter the adventurers'
      society-o, oh, oh. So get out of here-o, oh, oh.

      Justin
      Hmmph, then I guess I'll take my leave now! I don't need to enter
      this ridiculous society! I can handle this on my own!

      *** Leave the room.

      Justin
      Geez, I didn't know the chairman was such a freak... I wonder if
      Feena is actually engaged to that guy? What do you think, Sue?

      Sue
      Hmm... well it's difficult to say... Feena sure has bad taste if
      she's engaged. Well, we really have no way of knowing one way or
      the other right now... Anyway, why don't we go visit Feena's house?
      She'll surely lend us a map. Remember, Feena's house is outside
      Parm at the end of the Meril mountain trail, right? Let's go!

      *** Leave town and travel through the Meril road to Feena's house...

          A Conversation with Feena


     INSIDE FEENA'S HOUSE

     Justin
     Wow, is this Feena's house? It sure seems well made... I wonder if
     she built herself?

     Sue
     Cool! All the furniture looks like it was hand-made by her. Hey, why
     don't we have look around?

     *** Look at the um... pantaloons.

     Sue
     Ohhh! Look, look, Justin! Doesn't that look cuuute! I want a pair!

     Justin
     Sue, you mustn't touch that. I think Feena will be upset... W-what
     is that!? It's her p-panties!!

     *** You took Feena's panties!

     Voice
     Hey! Justin, Sue, thanks for coming over!

     *** She steps in.

     Feena
     I'm glad to see you. Boy, you sure got here quickly...

     Justin
     Huh!? No, no, no, you're mistaken! That, this... Argh! Sue!?

     Sue
     Hello, Feena!

     Feena
     ...Justin? What is that you're holding...? Eeee! Justin!! What are
     you doing!? Those are mine!

     *** Feena's panties were taken away from you.

     Feena
     Why! I should have known... scattering all my things around...

     Justin
     N-no, Feena it's not that...

     Sue
     What's wrong, you two? Your faces are so red.

     Feena
     Those were sort of dirty... W-well! Aren't you two hungry? Let's
     eat!

     *** After eating.

     Justin
     Ahh... that was great! I'm actually sort of surprised that you're so
     skilled at cooking.

     Sue
     This mint tea is soooo delicous! Feena, you know how do everything!

     Justin
     But, Feena, you live out here by yourself, right? Don't you ever get
     lonely?

     Feena
     Yes, I do... But if you stayed here with me I probably wouldn't be
     lonely...

     *** 2 Choices
     1) I-I can't do that. I have adventures to go on...
     2) R-really? Well then I guess I'll do that...

     *** Choose 1 or 2

     Feena
     Aha, ha, ha, ha! It was a joke! A joke! Did you think I was serious,
     Justin?

     Justin
     Wha-what? A joke? Well I guess I wasn't really sure about it...

     *** Feena says this only if you choose 2...

     Feena
     He, he... Still, I'm glad you said that...

     *** The following occurs if you chose 1 or 2...

     Feena
     Well, anyway, did you come here to talk to me about something? So
     what is it, Justin?

     *** 3 Choices
     1) Can you lend us a map of the new world?
     2) Are you engaged to the chairman of the adventurers' society?
     3) Will you adventure with us?

     *** Choose 1

     Justin
     We want to go to the Domu Ruins, so can you lend us your map of the
     new world?

     Feena
     Hey, you didn't join the adventurers' society? If you become a
     member, they'll give you a map.

     Justin
     I gave up trying to join! Those jerks over there aren't even
     adventurers! They're nothing but tour guides! Especially the
     chairman! What was wrong with him!? How did a klutz like him become
     chairman, anyway!?

     Sue
     But Feena's different! She's a real adventurer.

     Feena
     Umm, I'm in bind here... According to the society's rules, you can't
     hand over a map to someone who isn't an adventurer. So... if I lent
     you this map, I wouldn't be able to get work as an adventurer... Is
     that all you wanted to ask me, Justin?

     *** Choose 2

     Justin
     Now how do I put this..? The chairman of the adventurers' society,
     Pakon... he was saying something strange... Something about you two
     being engaged...

     Feena
     Stop! To think we're engaged... Pakon's just spreading a rumor!!
     That Pakon... no matter how many times I refuse him, he just won't
     listen. I can't stand it anymore! I went home as soon we got off the
     boat, because I didn't want to see him. I really wanted to show you
     around town.

     Sue
     Aha, so that's it! I thought that was strange. Isn't that a relief,
     Justin?

     Feena
     So, Justin, is that all you wanted to ask me?

     *** Choose 3

     Justin
     Feena, will you adventure with us? We're going to find the legendary
     Enjule!

     Feena
     Didn't you say something about that when you were talking about
     Saruto... in Mecina? Isn't it cool how the ruins of the ancient
     civilization seem to be alive?

     Sue
     They really are alive, Feena! A girl named Riethe said so! She said
     we should go to Alent!

     Feena
     Huh, so that really happened?! So, Justin's Spirit Stone is real!? I
     thought for certain that was just something Justin dreamed up...
     Wow, that's unbelievable! That's a great discovery!

     Justin
     In any case, I'm sure many of the secrets of Enjule are hiding in
     Domu as well! Let's journey there together, Feena!

     Feena
     Thank you for inviting me, Justin. But.... I can't. It's against the
     rules of the adventurers' society to go on an adventure without
     permission.

     Justin
     What?! Feena! You talk about nothing but rules, rules! How can there
     be times when an adventurer isn't allowed to adventure out into the
     world!?

     Feena
     Justin, stop acting as though a pro is the same thing as an amateur.
     I always obey the rules precisely. It's my way of doing things.
     Adventures who break the rules have their pass invalidated and are
     banished from the society. Do you understand, Justin? How horrible
     it is for an adventurer to be unable to adventure? So, for me, this
     pass..

     Justin
     No I don't understand! You can't adventure with a pass, and even if
     you do have one, you have to be constantly subject to the society's
     approval of where you adventure! If that really is the case, you
     can't call yourself an adventurer at all! Adventurers are like the
     wind! Adventurers have to follow their own path, Feena!

     Feena
     .......

     Justin
     Why are you so quiet, Feena? Feena, you're not like those fools at
     the society, right? Right!?

     Feena
     T-that is...

     Sue
     What's that music?

     Voice
     .....Feena my loooove! I've come to see you-o, oh, oh, ohhhhhh!

     Sue
     "Oh, oh, oh"...? Justin! That voice...!

     Feena
     W-wait here, Justin. I'll go outside and see what's going on.

     Voice
     Ahhhhhh!

     Sue
     Justin! That's Feena's voice!!

     Justin
     Huh? Where's Feena?

     Sue
     Justin! Over there!!

     Feena
     Leave this place, Pakon! This the 2nd time I've told you never to
     come here!

     Pakon
     Tonight is the night our 2 hearts will become entwined forever-o,
     oh, oh! We'll be married, and we can wash each others pants-o, oh,
     oh!

     Feena
     Wash your own pants! Haven't I already told you I have no desire to
     marry you!?

     Pakon
     I can understand that you feel awkward about this-o, oh, oh. But i
     know you really love me-o, oh, oh! Plus, if you won't marry me, I'll
     invalidate your adventuring pass-o, oh, oh, ohhhhhh! And then you
     won't be able to go an adventures, will you-o, oh, oh!?

     Feena
     Pakon...! That has nothing to do with this!

     Justin
     Hey, Pakon! You slug! Don't you see that Feena despises you!?

     Pakon
     Why were you in Feena's house-o, oh, oh? Just who are you?

     Justin
     W-what? That... Mmm.. I'm her friend... right?

     Feena
     No! You're.. you're my fiancee!

     Sue
     What?!

     Justin
     Huh? H-hey... Feena!?

     Feena
     Shhh! Just play along. Maybe if Pakon believes us, he'll give up
     trying to marry me.

     *** To Pakon.

     Feena
     I love him, Pakon. He proposed to me 1 year ago... but we weren't
     able to be married.

     Justin
     T-that's right, that's right! Keep your hands off my woman!

     Feena
     I'm sorry I kept this a secret from you, Pakon, but I'm sure you'll
     find someone else, and she'll be just right for you.

     Pakon
     ....I feel sorry for you, Feena. This man has tricked you into
     loving him... But I will save you-o, oh, oh! In fact I brought my
     bodyguard along just in case something like this happened-o, oh, oh.
     ....Mr. Chan! Come on over here!

     Chan
     Hiyaaa!

     *** He knocks Justin out.

     Voice
     Justin!

     Justin
     Mmph... Huh? I'm here...?

     Sue
     Yay, Justin! You're awake!

     Justin
     I see... That guy named Chan must of knocked me out....!! Sue! What
     happened to Feena!?

     Sue
     Those guys forced her to go with them. They were saying something
     about a wedding ceremony. Hey, Justin... what should we do?

     Justin
     I've know what I must do, Sue! I'm going to rescue Feena, and teach
     Pakon a lesson he won't soon forget!!

     Sue
     I thought you would say that! Let's head to New Parm!

  *** Head to the church and try to get in.

  Sign
  No public admittance at this time.

  *** Talk to the girl with a red hat on nearby.

  Girl
  Ohhhh... I want to see Feena's weddingdress~! Now, if only I had an
  invitation~! Hmm...I wonder if I should sneak in from the storehouse
  behind the Church...

  Sue
  Huh? From the storehouse?!

  Girl
  Um, yeah. There's a hidden passageway inside there. But it's really
  dangerous. He, he,I don't think I could make it.

  *** Go to the storehouse and jump into the hole within. Find your way
  through the sewer dungeon and walkup a stair of boxes to a doorway.

  Justin
  Alright! Looks like this is where wemake our entrance!

  *** They enter.

  Sue
  Look, Justin!

  Justin
  Yikes! Looks like they've already started!

  Minister
  Yaaawn... Do you Pakon take Feena to be your lawfully wedded wife... Do
  you promise to love her in sickness... and in health..., and tobe
  faithful to her until death does you part..?

  Pakon
  Yes, yes, yessss! I promise-o, oh, oh,ohhhhh!!

  Feena
  Mmmm, mmmm, mnghmgh.

  Minister
  Good... And now if any person can show just cause why this couple
  should not be united, let them speak now or forever hold their peace...

  Feena
  MM! MMNGG!

  Justin
  What on earth are you doing?! Father, can't you see that this is
  unjust!

  Minister
  Uh... finally... you may now kiss the bride and be forever united in
  holy matrimony...

  Justinand Sue
  He's gonna kiss her!?

  Feena
  NGGG! NGGGGG!

  Pakon
  Feena... I'm going to kiss you now. Here I come. Pucker up.

  Feena
  MMMU!! MMMU!!

  Pakon
  It's alright-o, oh, oh.. I'll kiss you gently. Oh, but it will be hard
  to restrain myself-o, oh, oh!

  Justin
  Crap! Pakon, you slime! If you don't stop right there, I'll...

  Sue
  Justin, we've got to get down from here! Hurry!

  Justin
  Let's go, Sue!

  *** The leap down.

  Justin
  Get away from her! If one drop of your saliva touches her, I'll kill
  you!

  Pakon
  Oh? Oh, oh!?

  Feena
  Bffgn!

  Justin
  Let Feena go, Pakon! I'm ending this wedding ceremony right here!!

  Sue
  That's right! A wedding is supposed tobe a girl's dream come true! We
  simply won't allowthis!!

  Pakon
  Uh-hyuk-yuk-yuk-yuk-yuk! You will not obstruct this ceremony-o, oh, oh!
  Dr. Chan! Comeon in!

  *** Zooms out.

  Pakon
  Dr. Chan is here for just such an occasion-o, oh, oh!!

  Justin
  So you've returned! You won't get the better of me this time!

  Chan
  .................... Kill!

  Pakon
  Waaaah, waaaah! What have you done-o,oh, ohhhhh!? You've spoiled my
  wedding!!

  Justin
  It was spoiled from the start! What a wedding! You tried to force Feena
  to marry you!

  Pakon
  So what-o, oh, ohhhhh! I, the great chariman of the adventurers'
  society, ordered this marriage to take place! Or perhaps you'd prefer
  to turn in your adventuring pass, Feena?

  Feena
  ........

  Pakon
  I'll forgive you, Feena-o, oh, oh. Come to me, my sweet-o, oh, ohhh!

  Justin
  Feena! Come with us! Let's get out of here!

  *** She moves toward Pakon.

  Justin
  Feena!!

  Pakon
  Hah, you have to come to me-o, oh, oh.If you don't have a pass you
  can't go adventuringat all.

  Feena
  Pakon, I'm returning this pass. I don't need it anymore.

  Pakon
  What, what are saying-o, oh, oh?

  Feena
  ... I finally recalled something, adventurers are supposed to be free
  like the wind.

  Justin
  Feena...!

  Feena
  ... How could I forget. Long ago I chosemy own destiny like the wind
  and clouds. I choseto be an adventurer... Noone decides where thewind
  blows. An adventurer's heart is not controlled by a pass. Farewell.
  From now on I amlike the wind. I choose my own path.

  Pakon
  Waaaah, Feeeena!!

  Feena
  Thank you! Justin, Sue, you rescued me!

  Sue
  And... now you're not a member of thesociety, right?

  Feena
  Yeah and I feel great. Let's go home,together!

  Feena
  Ahhh!

  Justin
  Wha!? What's going on!?

  People
  Hooray, hooray!! Congratulations on thewedding! Oh, oh, look, look!
  There so young! Howcute, they're so embarrassed. Oh they make aperfect
  couple! I'm so envious! Man, I wish I hadbride that pretty... heh!?
  Where's Pakon?! Whatdid you do to him!?

  Justin
  H-huh!? Well I...

  People
  Hey you there! What a rude thing to say ! This is a wedding, you're
  supposed to be happy! So be happy already! .. Well, I guess you're
  right. Alright ! Congratuuuuuuuulaaaaaations!

  Sue
  Yeah, yeah, you're such a cuuuutecouple!

  Pooy
  Puu, puu, puu!

  Justin
  Ha, ha, ha. Well, now we're in a bind...What should we do, Feena?

  Feena
  I wonder... Well... let's just go back to my house! This is too
  embarrassing!

  FEENA'SHOUSE

  Feena
  That was strange. They all thought we had gotten married. What a
  celebration!

  Sue
  Justin's face looked funny! You couldsee in his eyes that he was
  completely shocked!

  Justin
  Hey, that's a little a harsh...

  Feenaand Sue
  A-ha, ha, ha!

  Feena
  Well then! I bet you two are tired. Make yourself at home and get some
  rest. I've finally cleaned up this tent. Until now there all sortsof
  things just lying around... Since I sometimeskeep a lost lamb in my
  bed; and sometimes there's a heavy storm, and the tent is nearly blown
  away.I'm often away here for several days while I'm adventuring. I'm
  always glad to arrive in thiswarm, cozy tent after a tiring
  adventure... So Justin what do you usually think about on thenight
  before you begin a big adventure? Are you sometimes scared during the
  night?

  Justin
  Huh? Why would I be scared? I'm always so excited I can't sleep a wink!
  Well, I guess I do ocassionally feel a little uneasy too.

  Feena
  I... used to think that the only real adventures were the ones the
  adventurers' society sent me on... Isn't that strange? There were
  adventures long before the adventurers' society was created... I want
  to adventure with you,but...

  Justin
  Feena...

  Feena
  ...Let's sleep now. You two are going to want get up early tomorrow,
  right?

  THE NEXT DAY

  Justin
  Yaaaawn... Hey, Feena's gone... I wonder where she went?

  *** Go outside.

  Feena
  Ahh, what a pleasant morning.. Morning,Justin! So how was it? Did you
  get any sleep last night?

  Justin
  Huh? Uh, ah..

  Feena
  Is that so? Justin, do you know what path this wind is taking? It was
  born in the mountains and delievers the sound of birds and the
  fragrence of forests. I thought about thesights the wind might have
  seen all night. I'dlike to become the wind and soar through the skies
  with you. Seeing everything with you.

  Justin
  Feena...

  Feena
  I love the wind. You've made remember this long forgotten feeling...
  Let's go Justin, let's follow the wind together!

  Justin
  Yes! Let's go, Feena! But when should wedepart?

  Feena
  Very soon, Justin. I've been waiting for this feeling.. this moment for
  a long time.

  ON AN AIRSHIP OF THE GARLYSLE ARMY

  Baal
  ... So did you do it? Did you locate the final fragment?

  Myuren
  Unfortunately, not yet...

  Baal
  Unless we can gather all the fragments,"The Yggdrasil Project" will not
  beable to advance to its final phase. We must never give up stop this
  search until every fragment isin our possession.

  Myuren
  At this moment, an operation is occuring within a huge forest near the
  Domu Ruins. If goes smoothly, we should acquire new information
  about...

  Baal
  ... I see... Perhaps you'll catch himthis time. I'm anticipating a
  satsifactory outcome.

  BACK AT FEENA'S HOUSE

  Feena
  Well, I think we're ready to start traveling to Domu! Make sure you
  don't forget anything. Now, first of all we have to cross the Rangle
  Mountains located south of New Parm. The ruins arelocated in a desert
  beyond the mountains.

  Justin
  Alright! We're off to Domu!

                   A Change of Plans


       RANGLE MOUNTAINS

       *** Travel through the first part of the Rangle Mountains and walk by
       the bubbling spring.

       Feena
       This looks like a pretty safe spot. We don't want to overexert
       ourselves traveling so why don't we set up camp now?

       *** Select Feena.

       Feena
       What an interesting fate. I never would have been able to guess
       when I first met you two aboard that ship that we would end up
       camping together in these remote mountains.

       Justin
       Ha, ha, ha. I don't think you had much faith in me back then...

       Sue
       Why, that's because you're always acting like a little kid. I
       don't blame her.

       Feena
       He, he.. But Justin really helped me out back there at the
       church. You saved my life~!

       *** Select Sue.

       Feena
       Are you okay, Sue? Did all that mountain climbing tire you out?

       Sue
       Nah, not at all! Because we're all adventurers! That was a piece
       of cake for the likes of us!

       Feena
       Really, then I guess I have nothing to worry about! Anyway, I've
       been wondering, how was life like in Parm?

       Sue
       Justin was always getting into trouble! I wonder if he's if he's
       changed at all? What were you like when you were a kid, Feena?

       Feena
       Wha!? Me!? Ummm, let's see.. I was always around my older sister.
       She was a really nice person... but 2 years ago she suddenly went
       off to join the army and left me...

       *** Select Sue.

       Sue
       Hmm, so Feena's sister is in the Garlysle Army.. We saw several
       woman soldiers at Saruto, you know? I wonder if one of them could
       of been your sister?

       Justin
       How can you say that, Sue!? That one of those ugly, mean battle
       axes was Feena's sister!

       Sue
       Well, there was that group of 3 mean women, but there was also
       that one around the soldier with gold hair. I thought she was
       pretty and looked friendly.

       Justin
       Hmm...

       *** Select Feena.

       Feena
       So Justin, you want to go to Domu, right? Do you intend to find
       some more information about Enjule there?

       Justin
       Didn't I tell you? We just want to go to Alent. We should find
       something at Domu to point us in the right direction, nothing
       more.

       Feena
       ...Al.. ent? I've never heard of a place named that...

       Justin
       I hadn't either... It might be a city of the Enjule civilization.
       Whatever it is, it must surely an incredible place.

       Feena
       But past Domu Ruins there's just a giant misty forest... and
       after that, the edge of the world...

       Justin
       Right, but... it's got to be somewhere... I'm sure we'll know
       where to go after visiting Domu! We'll make it even if we have to
       go to the World's End!

       Feena
       Justin!? Noone has ever returned from the Forest of Mist! And the
       idea of going to the World's End...

       Justin
       Feena... you still don't understand! "Impossible" isn't part of
       an adventurer's vocabulary! And if it can be done, we'll do it!

       Feena
       Justin... I trust you. Yes, we can do it!

       *** Select yourself.

       THE NEXT DAY

       Justin
       Yaaawn. Boy, I slept well last night!

       Sue
       Yeah, it was so nice and cool!

       Feena
       Morning, you two! Nice morning, isn't it?

       Sue
       Wow! Feena, you always get up so early!

       Feena
       Hmm.. Well unless you can get up a little earlier, you're not
       full-fledged adventurers!

       Justin
       A-ha, ha, ha. Quit it, Feena. That's the same thing you said when
       we met you after you swabbed the deck.

       Feena
       A-ha, ha. I can see you're a little touchy today! Anyway, the sky
       has really cleared up this morning. You can see so far out in the
       distance. Oh! Look! There's the Forest of Mist and over there,
       the World's End.

       Sue
       Ooh! It's huge! That's all the Forest of Mist?

       Justin
       Feena... I see the Forest of Mist, but where's the World's End?

       Feena
       You're not looking in the right place, Justin. Look higher up.

       Justin
       Whoaaa!! That gigantic wall is the World's End?!

       Feena
       Yep, that's the World's End. The world ends beyond that wall.

       Justin
       Hmm... But, still, there's no way I can be sure until I go there
       and look over the edge for myself! I want to verify it with my
       own eyes! Damn! I'm burning up with excitement! I've got a
       feeling that Alent is just waiting for us out in the distance
       somewhere!

       Feena
       He, he. You're the first person I've known to start burning with
       excitement after looking at some scenery! Well, let's get going.
       After we cross the rest of this mountain range, we'll be very
       close to Domu.

       Justin
       Alright, let's go! We arrive in Domu Ruins today!

       *** Travel through the rest of the mountains to Domu and enter ruined
       area.

       DOMU RUINS

       Feena
       These are the Domu Ruins, Justin. When I came here before, the
       ruins were so packed with Garlysle soldiers that I couldn't get
       inside the ruins. So this is going to be the first time I've
       entered this place. I don't know what to expect from here on so
       be careful, you two.

       Justin
       Alright, alright! Now let's go!

       Travel through the ruins until you reach a ledge portruding over
       the clouds.

       Justin
       Wow! Look at this! You can't see the ground at all from here!
       Incredible...

       *** Move through the ruins and defeat the boss. After moving through
       the room the boss was guarding...

       Feena
       I wonder this is?

       Sue
       Justin, we've seen this thing somewhere before, right?

       Justin
       This is... Oh yeah! This is the same thing we saw at the Saruto
       Ruins!

       Feena
       And you said you met someone named Riethe at Saruto, right?

       Justin
       Yeah, and I know this thing was nearby when we met her. Therefore
       if I... Let's see here...

       Feena
       Justin!? What, what are you doing...!

       Riethe
       Welcome, Justin, follower under the spirits' blessing.

       Justin
       I'm already here, Riethe! Now how about Alent? Where's Alent
       hiding?

       *FMV TRANSLATION PENDING*

       Riethe
       This world does not have an edge... There may be a way you can
       verify that...

       Justin
       Alright... This adventure isn't over yet... It's obvious we can't
       grope our way into Alent now, but now we know the world doesn't
       end! You two heard that, right? That means there's something
       beyond the World's End! The adventure can continue!

       Sue
       But Justin... that wall was so high... Do really think we get by
       it? And that's not all... The Forest of Mist is ahead of us, and
       noone's ever returned from traveling through there...

       Justin
       What? That doesn't matter! Don't you think? I'm an adventurer!
       There's nowhere I can't go!! There's no place of no return!! If
       noone's gone there or returned from there, then I'll be the first
       person on Earth to make it! I'm sure Alent is over there too!
       Let's go, Feena, Sue!! First we cross the Forest of Mist! Then we
       make it to the other side of the World's End!

       *** Return to the entrance of the ruin.

       Feena
       Ok, I know you want go beyond the World's End. But just how do
       you intend do it?

       Justin
       It's alright! Don't worry, I'm sure we'll find away.

       Sue
       Juustiiin!? You're not thinking again, are you? You can't do
       anything without our help.

       Feena
       Aha, ha, ha, that's Justin alright. Why don't we return to New
       Parm before we go? We'll probably need provisions for the
       journey.

       Sue
       That's what I expected! Feena, on the other hand, has thought up
       a great idea~!

       *** Leave the ruin.

       Feena
       Wait, Justin! Hey, look over there! There's someone on the
       ground!

       Creature
       %...

       Justin
       It's a child! He's passed out...

       Feena
       He's bleeding...! This is terrible!! It's a horrible wound!

       Sue
       Hey, Feena... This kid has a horn and a tail... Oh look! He's
       opening his eyes!

       Creature
       ... %**...

       Feena
       Great...! It looks like he's conscious now.

       Justin
       It's... not an animal. It seems like a human.

       Creature
       $#$#! $@@! $@#@@!!

       Justin
       Huh?

       Feena and Sue
       Ahhh! Justin!

       Justin
       Owwww! He's biting me! He's biting me! W-w-what is the heck is
       this thing!?

       Creature
       %...

       Feena
       It looks like he's become unconscious again... Well, we've got to
       find a way to treat his wounds! Justin, help me! Let's transport
       him back to my house. Hurry!

       Justin
       Oh, oh, I see! Leave it to me!

       *** They leave.

       Saki
       Look! He's been here!

       Nana
       Alright, company, halt! Sub-human Pursuit Squad, stop right here!

       Mio
       This is strange. According to my calculations, he should not be
       able to flee this area with a wound that severe.

       Nana
       I'm so thoughtless. Sometimes during guard duty I get bored and
       go off to buy make-up.

       Mio
       Don't worry, even if you're fired, our friendship will be
       eternal.

       Saki
       Quit it you two! Ugh, I hate the smell of this animal! If I
       didn't have perfume on, I just couldn't take it!

       Nana
       What should we do, Mio? This is the precious sub-human we nearly
       captured! We absolutely must find him!

       Mio
       Yes, let's see... That's it! Let's use the military dogs. If this
       goes according to my plan, we should have a wonderful result!

       Mio
       Good thinking, Mio! It takes a beast to catch a beast. Let's
       return to the base and make preparations.

       Nana
       Alright, Sub-human Pursuit Squad, about face! We're going back to
       the base on the front line!

                  The Search for a Cure


       FEENA'S HOUSE

       Creature
       @@@... %%%...

       Feena
       This is bad... I tried treating him using my usual method, but it
       seems he still has a fever.

       Justin
       Well? Does it look you can save him or not?

       Feena
       It's no good... You see, when the wound becomes infected and this
       type of fever is contracted... Well, there's nothing I can do.

       Sue
       Are you sure there's no way? Well, Feena?

       Feena
       In order to stop the infection I'll need a type of herb called a
       Sarfa Weed. But at this time of year....

       Justin
       Don't say it. Let's try looking for one anyway. We might get
       lucky and find one, right?

       Feena
       That's right... Then let's go! The herb grows pretty well on the
       mountain behind my house.

       *** Go outside.

       Justin
       Uhh.. where did you say the Sarfa Weed grows again?

       Feena
       It's on the rocky mountain behind my house. There's a fence in
       front of it. Come on!

       *** Go to the fence near Feena's house.

       Feena
       We can climb the mountain from here. Beyond this point there are
       lots of evil monsters, so this area was sealed up a long time
       ago. Wait a second. I'll unfasten the fence.

       Justin
       Just relax! I'll take of this fence with one shot of my
       wood-shattering kick!

       Feena
       N-no, Justin..!

       Justin
       Yaaa!

       It hurts.

       Justin
       Owww!

       Feena
       Justin, are you ok!? Don't be so reckless!

       Justin
       N-no sweat... It guess it did hurt just a tiny bit... Anyhow,
       let's hurry up and find some Sarfa Weed!

       *** If you find a white herb...

       Feena
       Justin, this is a white Sarfa Weed. We need a red one.

       *** If you find a red one...

       Feena
       This is it! This is a red Sarfa Weed! I thought they would have
       all withered away by now... Great! Now we can save that child!

       *** You receive a Sarfa Weed.

       *** Return to Feena's house.

       Feena
       It looks like his fever has gone down... That's the first
       improvement he's made. I think he's going to make it..

       Justin
       Well, I didn't know how this was going to turn out, but boy am I
       relieved now! But anyway.. what's with this kid? He's growing a
       tail or something.

       Feena
       Hmm.. From the direction he was lying when we found him on the
       ground, it looked like he had came from the Forest of Mist.

       Justin
       Maybe... I wonder if this kid is somehow connected to Enjule...?!
       That's got to be it! Since he's growing horns and a tail! This is
       terrific, Feena! This kid might be a Koyokujin or something...

       Feena
       Shh! Don't talk so loud. You might wake him up!

       Justin
       Sorry Feena. I just got so excited all of the sudden... Ha, ha,
       ha..

       Feena
       Oh Justin! I have no idea whether this child is somehow connected
       to Enjule or not, but I'm sure he'll tell us all about when he
       wakes up. He's still going to be wounded when he awakes so we'll
       have to guide him back to where he lives.

       Justin
       Right! He's a mysterious guy, but I'm sure it will all become
       clear when we have a talk with him.

       Feena
       Then... Justin, please get some sleep. I'll look after him.

       Justin
       You should get to bed soon too. It's been a pretty tiring day.

       Feena
       Ok. Good night, Justin.

       THAT NIGHT

       Sue
       I wonder what that is... That mysterious music... Hey, wake up,
       Justin.

       Justin
       Feena... she fell asleep like that.

       Sue
       Wha?! Feena, Justin!! The kid is gone!!

       Feena
       Uh..? W-where did he go off to..!? I didn't think he would have
       already recovered by now... Hmm..? A flute..? Where's that music
       coming from?

       Sue
       It sounds like it's coming from outside. Let's go, Justin!

       *** Go outside.

       Sue
       Oh, over there!

       Creature
       #@$ #@$! #$*% #*$% #*$@$!! )%# ^ #(%*^@.

       Sue
       Hey, what's your name? My name's Sue.

       Creature
       @#%$@#@ #$@#! %*)$(#*$)%()#* #)$(%*#$.

       Justin
       Maybe this kid isn't human after all. He has such a strange
       voice.

       Feena
       But he seems like he's trying to tell us something. Maybe... he's
       just speaking in another language?

       Justin
       Another language...? I didn't think there were any other
       languages..

       Feena
       Hey, little boy, who are you? Where did you come from?

       Creature
       @#@# @##!? #$$#! #@$ ##@%^$!

       Justin
       Hmm, this isn't working! He can't understand a thing we say.

       Creature
       #$%#$%^%!!

       Justin
       What's this? He's giving us a nut? What does he want us to do
       with it?

       Sue
       Maybe he wants to thank us? He probably wants us to eat it.

       Feena
       I've never seen a nut like this before. Try eating it, Justin.

       They're surrounded.

       Saki
       We've finally found you! I'll never be able to forget the stench
       of this beast!

       Creature
       #$%# #$%... @#... #@$%

       Justin
       What are you doing here!?

       Nana
       The Garlysle Army demands you hand over the sub-human!

       Justin
       Sub-human? ... So he's a sub-human, huh? I thought he was human..

       Mio
       Hey... we met you kids at Saruto, didn't we? What a strange place
       for us to see you again... You have no choice. If you don't want
       to get hurt, please hand over the child.

       Feena
       No! Why do you want this child anyway!?

       Justin
       We just rescued this kid! Now why should we just blindly hand him
       over to you!?

       Sue
       Yeah, yeah! That's tyrannical!

       Nana
       Ahhhhh! They're all talking at once! It's just too much! I don't
       care whether it's tyrannical or not! The sub-human is an
       essential part of the army's secret project. If you don't hand
       him over right now, we'll kill you all!!

       Justin
       An important part!? The army has a secret project...!?

       Saki
       Hey! What are you doing blurting out that classified
       information!? Think before you speak!

       Nana
       N-now we have no choice! The only we can do is take them back to
       the base!

       Mio
       Then I guess you'll have to come along with us back to the
       base...

       Justin
       A-are you kidding!? Do you think we're going to just let you take
       us away!?

       Mio
       From now on, you are not allowed to disobey us. If you do, you'll
       be forced to do hard labor until you die. Alright soldiers! Take
       this group back to our base on the front line!

                 Captured!

       AT THE MILITARY BASE

       Justin
       Damn it! You're just going to toss us in here and leave?!

       Nana
       O-ho-ho! Resolve yourselves for the end, kids. You're not going
       to slip by us this time!

       Mio
       This is fantastic! We're allowed to give them the death penalty
       if they try to escape, you know? I wonder which method of
       execution would be most effective?

       Saki
       Well, let's go, Saki, Mio!

       *** To a soldier

       Saki
       Alright! Guard this area and shout out if they try anything!

       Sue
       They left... What should we do now, Justin?

       Justin
       They took away all our weapons... I don't think that we can
       escape from here now...

       *** Select the shiny object inside the cell.

       Justin
       Hmm..? What's this?

       *** You acquire a very heavy pipe.

       Justin
       Now we're talking! This pipe is nice and heavy. I think we have a
       chance now!

       Sue
       Yay! Just knock that guy out~...

       Justin
       Ok! We have a weapon! But we still need an escape plan... Hey!
       I've got an idea, Sue!

       Sue
       Yep, I've got it, Justin!

       *** Sue begins to cry..

       Sue
       Waaaah! My tummy, hurts, hurts, HURTS, HUUURRRTTTS!!!!

       Justin
       Listen, something's wrong with Sue! Come on!

       Guard
       Stop shouting! What's the matter!?

       Justin
       Sue, Sue's... it's terrible!

       Sue
       WAAAAH! MY TUMMY HUUURRRTS!!

       Justin
       Hey! Hurry up, hurry up! Get her to a doctor!

       Guard
       Dang, I guess I have no choice. What a brat. Just wait a second,
       I'm opening the door...

       *** Justin hits the guard.

       Guard
       *Mmmph!*

       Sue
       That worked pretty well, Justin!

       Justin
       Ah, ha! Our plans are fool-proof! Now, we've got to rescue Feena
       and that kid, and get out of here!

       *** Go to the next room and talk to Feena.

       Feena
       Justin! You came for me!

       Justin
       Feena, hold still! I'm opening up this door! Mmm... Grrgrrgrr...!
       It's no use! The door won't open!

       Feena
       Justin, you're hopeless! You can't just open it up with your
       brute strength. You need a key!

       Sue
       Hey, hey, Justin, it looks like there's another room over here!
       There might be a key in there!

       Justin
       I guess so. Then let's have a look!

       *** Go in the next room, approach the gate.

       Justin
       No! This won't open either! Shoot! Now where's the key?

       *** Go in the next room.

       Soldier
       What's up? I see... the room with the sub-human specimen, huh...
       So you're in the middle of examing it now? We've got those 2
       kids. No, the guard duty is going smoothly, don't worry. Huh!?
       You!?

       Justin
       Yaa!

       Sue
       Way to go, Justin!

       Justin
       He, he, I had perfect form on that one!

       Sue
       Hey, Justin. I bet that sub-human specimen is that little kid.

       Justin
       Right, we'll have to rescue him after we free Feena!

       *** Select the key on the floor.

       Justin
       Alright, it's the prison key!

       *** You acquire the prison key.

       *** Leave.

       Justin
       Geez!!

       Sue
       Ahhh!

       *** Everything becomes black..

       Voices
       You little brat!

       *** Justin is taken back to the cell.

       Justin
       Crap, and we nearly got away... Damn! Get me out of here!! What
       do you plan to do with me!? Say something!!

       Guard
       Shut up! Just hang there quietly!

       Justin
       Look at me, you jerks! I'm going to get away! I warned you!

       *** Leen enters.

       Leen
       How's our prisoner here?

       Guard
       He's been shouting the whole time. He just won't behave.

       Leen
       I see... I'm going to have a talk with him. Let me through.

       *** Leen enters the cell.

       Leen
       ... I've spoken to you before. Your manner is foolish.

       Justin
       What are you talking about!? I remember, we were after each
       other's throats at Saruto too! Now untie these ropes! I want to
       see Feena!

       Leen
       Silence! I did not give you permission to talk freely! You've
       discovered too much of our secret project. About the ancient
       civilization and now the sub-human... No matter, the fate of you
       3 shall be decided within a week. You might be put to death.

       Justin
       So you want me to obediently hang around here and wait for you to
       give me the death penalty!? I'm going to escape, I tell you!

       Leen
       Shut up! I did not say you could speak!

       Justin
       Whoa, I can take it... Urp... On second thought, I think I should
       remember to be quiet...

       Leen
       .... Do you really think that we're going to allow you to escape
       from here? There's no way that you can get by all the soldiers
       alone. You're not leaving until the military train gets here.

       Justin
       Huhh... Mi-military train...?

       Leen
       There's nothing for you to do but wait for your sentence.. So
       behave until then.

       *** Leen leaves the cell.

       Leen
       Cmdr. Myuren will announce your new orders soon. Standby in the
       next room.

       Guard
       But Lieutenant Leen, is alright to leave this boy unguarded?

       Leen
       You may leave now. If this boy causes any more trouble, we'll
       just kill him.

       Guard
       Yes, ma'am! Excuse us as we take our leave!

       *** Guards leave.

       Leen
       I've been thinking. You still have a lot of time left before your
       fate is decided upon...

       Justin
       Bah... I'll have to remember that girl! After she slapped me in
       the face like that! Now then, what I'm I going to do... I've got
       to get out of these ropes somehow... Hey, seems like I can squirm
       out of these! Mmm... Somehow... Mmmmm.. Come on...

       *** Justin unties the ropes.

       Justin
       Yeah! Now.. I have to make it out of here this time!!

       *** Select the key on the floor.

       Justin
       ... Huh? Might this be... Alright!! It's the prison key!

       *** You acquire the prison key.

       Justin
       I guess Leen must of dropped this. Heh, heh, heh... what a
       foolish thing to do...

       Feena
       Justin! I'm glad you're safe!

       Justin
       Hold on, Feena! I'm opening this up! Ok! It's unlocked!

       Feena
       Thanks, Justin!

       Justin
       He, he, no sweat!

       Feena
       How did you break out of there so quickly? What sort of magic did
       you use?

       Justin
       Heh, heh, actually some soldier came to my cell and asked me a
       bunch of questions, and then she ended up dropping the key as she
       left. She's a real fool, you know. So, anyway, I used that key to
       escape.

       Feena
       Hmmm.. That's sort of hard to believe.. I guess we have that
       soldier to thank for our rescue!

       Sue
       Justin, before we leave, we should rescue that child!

       Justin
       Oh, of course!

       Feena
       Then let's start looking for him now before the soldiers start
       looking for us.

       Climb through an air duct behind the gate in the next room and
       keep going straight until you hear something.

       Voice
       ..@#$@#$ @#$# @#$@!! @##$%# ##$@!

       Justin
       Ah!? That voice...

       Creature
       #@#!? %$%#$@ $#$%#@ $#@@%.

       Myuren
       @#$# @#$%$@#? #@$%^#@.

       Creature
       @#$%#... @#$#@!?

       Myuren
       Hmm... it seems hopeless... He's too afraid...

       Leen
       ... How did it go, Cmdr. Myuren? Did you find out the location of
       the sub-human's village?

       Myuren
       No... He's frightened and will not cooperate. I should not expect
       that he will reveal the location of his village. He won't even
       tell me his name. I think Saki and her crew overdid it this time.
       It's their usual method, but we must make sure to warn them not
       to traumatize the speciemens from now on.

       Leen
       Myuren, sir... What do you intend to do with the sub-human child?
       We can't..

       Myuren
       Ha, ha... Leen, you're such a gentle soul. Are you that worried
       about it?

       Leen
       N-no.. It's not...

       Myuren
       Don't worry. I will not be harsh. This operation will only be
       significant if we are just in accomplishing it. Let's proceed
       with the plan we talked about earlier. You must be dilligent,
       Leen!

       Leen
       Yes, sir.

       Sue
       What did you see, Justin? Did you find that kid? I heard his
       voice!

       Justin
       Oh, he's right over here! And there was someone else, that guy we
       met at Saruto. I think he was called Myuren..

       Sue
       Really? That guy with the golden hair!?

       Feena
       I seem to recall you said that guy gave you some trouble.

       Justin
       So now the story is that he gave me some trouble!? We just had a
       rough brawl with him!! But.. somehow he could understand what
       that kid was saying. How does he do it?!

       Feena
       Let's just save that kid now. Ok then, let's go!

       *** Proceed through the next air vent.

       Sue
       Justin, over there!

       Select the buttons on the wall.

       Feena
       Looks like we have to push these buttons in the proper order to
       get the door to open.

       Justin
       These buttons should open this door. Hmm.. which one goes
       first...

       *** 3 Choices
       1) Push the "Up" button.
       2) Push the "Down" button.
       3) Push the "Left" button.
       4) Push the "Right" button.

       *** Push a button.

       Justin
       And then, and then, next should be...

       *** Push a button

       Justin
       Hmm, and the 3rd one is...

       *** Push a button.

       Justin
       This is the 4th. Umm, the 4th is...

       *** Push a button.

       Justin
       Ok, now we're at the 5th...

       *** Push a button.

       Justin
       Uhh, the 6th is... Umm, err...

       *** Push a button.

       Justin
       Stay calm... Stay calm... Stay calm, Justin. The 7th is...

       *** Push a button.

       Justin
       Is this... the last one? Mmm.. the 8th is...

       *** Push a button.

       Justin
       Shoot.... It looks like this isn't working..

       Sue
       Let's stop wasting our time here and start searching for the
       proper way to open this door, Justin!

       *** Travel through the ducts until you reach a colorful room.

       Justin
       What!? This is..!

       Saki
       Boy, the new world sure is hot! I'm sweating everywhere. My chest
       is sweating, look, I'm even sweating in my underwear.

       Mio
       That's strange. According to my calculations your chest wouldn't
       naturally be sweating...

       Nana
       Quit talking about the heat. It just makes me feel hotter!
       Anyhow, I wonder if Myuren is going to select me? I want to
       follow his every command...

       Saki
       Ahemmm! What do you think? I know Myuren is going give me high
       grade! I'm sure of it! By the way, the code to that beast's door
       is up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, correct?

       Nana
       It looks like your head is filled with sweat too! It's right,
       left, right, left, down, down, up, up! Nana, I see that tasks
       such as remembering a simple code are imm-poss-ee-bull for you!

       Mio
       You're both wrong. It's right, right, left, left, down, up, down,
       up. Try to remember this time.

       Saki
       So it's right, right, left, left, down, up, down, up... Alright!
       I have it memorized!!

       Nana
       Get it right this time! I don't want you blurting out, "Damnit!"
       in front of that stinky little beast!

       Saki
       I'm not going to fail such a simple task! And when I put the code
       in properly, I'll have a nice long, "I told you so" in front of
       your face! Uhh.. right, right, left, left, up down, up, down.
       Right, right, left, left, up, down, up, down...

       *** Go back to the door and put in Mio's code.

       Justin
       Allllright, it opened!! Just like they said!

       Feena
       You watched them dressing in the process of getting that code.

       Justin
       Right, right... hey! Now wait, wait, Feena!

       Sue
       Justin, you're the lowest of the low!

       Justin
       Su-Sue, how can you say that!? A-anyway, let's hurry up and
       rescue that kid!

       Sue
       Ah-ha, trying to change the subject, I see.

       Talk to the child(?) behind be the bars.

       Creature
       @@!? @#$%$!? @#$@! @#$@# @#$ @#$$!

       Sue
       It's alright, it's alright. We're here to rescue you.

       Feena
       Uhh, how do we open this cage...? There must be a switch or
       something around here...

       *** Select the pulley nearby.

       Justin
       Oh..! Maybe we can open the cage with this!

       Feena
       3 nuts..? He tried to give us these before. I wonder if he's
       telling us to eat them.

       Sue
       Hmm... It doesn't look poisonous... Justin, try eating one.

       Justin
       Ri-ridiculous! How can you say that!? Aren't we friends!? I
       thought you always wanted us to be together!? We can't be
       together if I'm dead from eating one of those!

       Feena
       Aha, ha, ha, ha! Justin, don't you think overreacting just a bit?
       But you're right, let's eat them together. On the count of 3...
       One!

       Justin
       Two!

       Sue
       Three!

       Justin, Sue, and Feena
       ...Ulp......

       Justin
       @#$X#$@O!!!!!!

       Creature
       Are you alright!? I'm sorry. Did they taste that bad?

       Justin
       ... Did they taste that bad...? I see! Don't make someone eat
       that junk! It's indigestable!

       Creature
       Whoa! I-I'm sorry! But I'm not Indigestable, I'm Lem!

       Feena
       ! Justin! We can understand what that child is saying now!

       Justin
       Huh? That's... that's right! I can understand what this kid is
       saying!

       Lem
       Those were nuts from a "communica tree". It's a bit of the
       "wisdom of the lost of the civilization" that's found in my
       village.

       Sue
       Unbelievable!! Now we can talk with him as much as we want!

       Justin
       First we have to escape from here! Let's search for an exit!

       *** Attempt to leave.

       Saki
       Huh? How did you escape from your cell!? And you brought the
       sub-human with you?! Well, it's up to me to save the day! Get
       them! You will not escape with your life!

       *** After defeating Saki.

       *** You acquired the master key.

       Justin
       Hey! Look at this! I bet we can open all sorts of doors now!

       *** Upon trying to go up some stairs...

       Nana
       How did you escape! I see that idiot Saki must of fouled up
       again! But this where it ends, kiddies. My beautiful techniques
       will spill your blood!

       *** After the battle, go upstairs.

       Justin
       Wah! We're outside!

       Sue
       What should we do, Justin!?

       Feena
       Let's keep searching for an exit!

       *** Upon trying to go down the corridor with a saving point..

       Mio
       Aha, I thought I heard a noise coming from here. I see you're
       escaping. This is troubling. You were scheduled to be sent to
       receive the death penalty tomorrow... Well, I guess I'll have to
       change the schedule.

       *** After the battle, proceed downstairs.

       Justin
       Huh! This is... that military train that girl was talking about!
       We can escape on this train!

       Feena
       Justin, do you know how to drive one of these things?

       Justin
       Actually I've never driven one of these in my life, but we'll
       manage!

       *** Get in the train.

       Sue
       Justin, hurry, hurry! There are soldiers coming!

       Justin
       Ok, gotcha! This is it!

       IN THE GARLYSLE AIRSHIP

       Myuren
       I see... So you say the young sub-human escaped? Until now it was
       proceeding so smoothly..

       Leen
       Yes, Commmander. But...

       Myuren
       ... What, Leen?

       Leen
       N-no... it's nothing.

       Myuren
       Alright, Leen. Order Nana's party to begin pursuing the youths
       accordingly.. You, Leen, will watch their pursuit from the sky
       with me. Prepare the battleship, Grandeur, for departure.

       Leen
       Understood, Cmdr. Myuren. The preparations will be completed in
       15 minutes.

       ON THE TRAIN

       Feena
       Morning, Justin.

       Justin
       Oh, good morning, Feena!

       Feena
       It looks like we've finally gotten away from the military...
       You've been driving this thing all through the night, Justin. You
       must be tired. Why don't you let me drive for a while?

       Justin
       I'm fine, I'm fine! A world-class adventurer can't yield at a
       time like this! Anyway, how's Sue and Lem?

       Feena
       They're both sleeping soundly in the passenger car. He, he, they
       look so cute fast asleep.

       Justin
       Really? That's nice, but there are tons of things I want to ask
       Lem now!

       Feena
       I understand what you mean, but let's let them sleep a little
       longer. Yesterday was quite a strain.

       Justin
       Got it!.

       Feena
       I think the fire needs some more coal. I'll go get it.

       Justin
       No, I'll do it!

       Feena
       Then who's going to be driving the train?

       Justin
       Hey, hmm...

       Feena
       Aha, ha, ha! Ok, I'll handle the driving while you feed the fire.

       Justin
       Understood! Umm...

       Feena
       Just pull that lever over there.

       Justin
       Whoa!! What's happening!?

       Feena
       N-no, Justin! That's the brake! Pay attention, Justin!

       Justin
       Heh, heh, it was just a little joke!

       Feena
       Really~?

       Justin
       Really!

       Feena
       Aha, ha, ha, ha!

       LATER

       Feena
       How are you, Lem? Did you sleep well yesterday?

       Lem
       Nope, I couldn't sleep much. This is first time I've ever ridden
       on something like this! I was really excited!

       Justin
       This vehicle is called a train! There are lots of things like
       this from where we come from!

       Pui
       Puu! Puu!

       Sue
       But I can't imagine why boys are so crazy about vehicles like
       this. Justin always got on these things back home without
       permission and got into big trouble!

       Feena
       Aha, ha, ha, ha! That's our Justin!

       Justin
       Ha, ha, ha, I guess things like that did happen occasionally...
       Anyhow, Lem! I've got a mountain of questions for you!

       Lem
       I'll tell you anything I know! What do you want to ask me?

       *** 3 Choices
       1) Why were you on the ground in the Forest of Mist?
       2) Have you seen the World's End?
       3) Where do you live?

       *** Choose 1

       Lem
       I was just walking through the forest when suddenly this
       scary-looking lady started chasing after me..

       Justin
       That had to be one of those 3 pathetic women.

       Lem
       I ran as hard as I could, but I fell over something and hurt
       myself.

       Feena
       But why would the Garlysle Army do such a thing..? Could my
       sister be connected to it? Nah, I don't think so.

       *** Choose 2

       Lem
       The World's End..? Oh, you mean that big wall? Of course I've
       seen that! My mom said that people used to live on the other side
       of the wall a long, long time ago.

       Justin
       Really!? People on the other side!?

       *** Choose 3

       Lem
       My village is called Ruku. It's surrounded in reeeeally thick
       mist so noone goes in there! Actually noone ever leaves the
       village either, but.. I wanted to see the world!

       Justin
       Oh, Lem, I think you've got some potential as an adventurer! What
       say you, Feena?

       Feena
       That's right, certainly more than Justin... Aha, ha, ha! Kidding,
       kidding!

       Lem
       I know! Let's go to Ruku! I'm sure all the villagers will give us
       a big welcome!

       Justin
       Ruku..? Perhaps I can learn more about the World's End over
       there. Then let's head to Ruku! Lead the way, Lem! W-whoa! What's
       that!?

       Feena
       Eeeek!

       Justin
       What could that be? I'll have a look!

       *** Justin goes out.

       Justin
       Yaah! What's that, some sort of new military vehicle chasing
       after us!?

       Justin
       They're in pursuit! The army is chasing down the train!

       Sue
       Oh no! What should we do, Justin?!

       *** Leave the room. Walk up to the first soldier.

       Soldier
       I've found them! Just try and get by me!

       *** After the battle

       Soldier
       C-crap, they got me..

       *** Walk up to the next soldier.

       Soldier
       There's nowhere for you to run! Just come quietly!

       *** After the battle

       Soldier
       Damn... t-they.. got me...

       *** Go in the next room and approach the next soldier.

       Soldier
       Found you! Alright, Lighting Star Squad, CHAAARGE!!

       *** After the battle

       Soldier
       S-shit, they got me... I've failed Lieutenant Nana again..

       *** Walk up to the next soldier.

       Soldier
       The pride of the Bloody Rose Squad is at stake! You will not
       escape! Give yourselves up!

       *** After the battle

       Soldier
       I'm sorry, Lieutenant Saki...

       *** Go to the next soldier

       Soldier
       The Desert Moon Squad won't be so easy! Prepare yourselves!

       *** After the battle.

       Soldier
       And after I ended up being assigned to Lieutenant Mio's squad...

       Feena
       ... Excellent! The soldiers still haven't entered the engine
       room.

       Sue
       But I'm sure they'll be here soon! At this rate, they'll
       eventually capture us, Justin...

       Justin
       Mmm.. they're probably coming, and fast... Perhaps... the brake?.

       *** Select the brake.

       Justin
       ...Alright! Watch out! I'm pulling the brake lever.. Mmmmph!
       Mmmmph! Craaap, it's stuck! Ummmph! Urrrmph!

       Feena
       What should we do about it, Justin?

       Sue
       I can't believe we're going to lose because of a single stuck
       lever!

       Justin
       He, he, look here! Now before they get here...

       *** Fade out

       Nana
       Hurry up! Search the engine room up ahead and destroy them!

       Saki
       Ah! Are you stalling me, Nana!? Is that it!?!

       Mio
       Uh, if we're late in accomplishing this mission we're going to
       get 100 lashes.

       Saki
       Heh, heh, heh, how's that!? My squad got in here first! That puts
       each of us in our rightful place!

       Mio
       Wait just a second, Saki. Is this the right place for us to be?

       Saki
       What are you talking about, Mio? Just because your squad was
       late... Ahhh! Our objective is not here!

       Nana
       Well where are they!? What are you doing just standing there?!
       Start searching for them!

       Justin
       Heh, heh, we have you!

       Saki
       We finally meet again, Justin!! You may have defeated me at the
       base, but it's not going to happen again!!

       Mio
       That's right... When we team up, we're nearly 11 times as strong.

       Nana
       ...? That beast isn't with you. Where'd you hide him? I know you
       wouldn't try to escape without him...

       Saki
       We'll take care of that later, Nana. First we have to finish this
       brat off.

       Mio
       Let's do it. According to my calculations, this should be over in
       a minute.

       Justin
       Heh, heh, heh, that's right. This will be over in a minute!!
       Feena! Sue! Disconnect the car!

       Nana
       Does he think that he can get away so easily?!

       Mio
       It's probably just a childish attempt. We just need to pull the
       brake.

       Nana
       Where's the brake!?

       Justin
       I took the liberty of removing the brake lever!

       Sue
       Good thinking, Justin!

       Nana
       What do we do, now?!

       Mio
       There's no way to stop the train, we'll have to jump.

       Saki
       We can't jump at this speed!!

       Saki, Nana, and Mio
       Justin!!! We'll get you for this!

       *** The train stops.

       Feena
       Aha, ha, ha! Ah, we've made it! The faces that those 3 made are
       unforgetable!

       Justin
       Yeah, when they were trying in desperation to stop the train!

       Sue
       Aha, ha, ha! That was funny!

       Justin
       Anyway, Lem, is Ruku Village nearby?

       Lem
       Yeah, it's really close to here! Let's go!

       Sue
       This is incredible fog! It's as thick as milk!

       Feena
       I can't see anything ahead...

       Feena
       What should we do, Justin? Should we wait until the fog clears?

       Justin
       That might be the best thing to do. If we try to proceed we'll
       get lost in all the fog..

       Lem
       He, he, he... It's alright! If you've got a Ruku villager with
       you, you won't get lost! Look!!

       Justin
       Unbelievable! The fog cleared up!

       Lem
       He, he... Isn't it great? This flute lets everyone in the village
       know I'm coming, and in Ruku there are strange nuts called
       fog-lifting nuts, and they clear away all the fog. Now let's get
       going! My village is just up ahead! Hurry, hurry!

       Sue
       Oh! Wait up, Lem~!

       Feena
       He's already off... He seems very happy to be returning to his
       village.

       Justin
       Let's go! If we don't hurry he might leave us behind!

     Village

     Lem
     ...Here is Ruku Village. I've Already told everyone in the village
     about you guys.

     Lem
     And when I did, the Village Elder said that he want to meet you guys
     to say thanks.

     Lem
     I'll wait by my house so go meet the Elder...got it? See ya!

     *** After Lem darts away, Justin and the others have a look around the
     village and engage in small talk with the villagers. Soon they reach
     the Village Elder's house and enter

     Village Elder
     I am the Elder of Ruku Village. I have heard that you rescued Lem.
     While I, as the Elder of this village, wish to present something as
     our sign of appreciation....

     Village Elder
     However I must beg of you to make the stay in this village as short as
     possible. We people are one such that wish one peace.

     Justin
     What are you trying to say? Are you trying to tell us to leave?

     Village Elder
     I, I wouldn't go that far.... However..... This is a bit....then...

     Justin
     Wasn't there anyone that came to this village besides us? Were they
     all chased out?

     Village Elder
     Well, thats not true. To dwell among us you must get the blessings of
     the God of Light.

     Justin
     Oh so thats it! How would we be able to get this blessing? Tell us
     Elder!

     Village Elder
     ....Then I shall tell you.... The god that protects this village, the'
     God of Light',is at the peak of Koujin Mountain.

     Village Elder
     Bring back that bottle of wine that is in front of the mural.

     Village Elder
     Thats the procedure used in order for us to recognise those from the
     outside world as part of this village.

     Village Elder
     To tell you the truth, I do not wish to disturb the peace of this
     village but since you saved Lem, I really dont have a choice.

     *** After hearing this, Justin and the others set out for Koujin Mountain
     in order to get accepted as part of Ruku Village (after getting new
     Weapons armor and the like).

     peak of Koujin Mountain. Justin Notices a mural and goes up to it

     Justin
     Oh so this is the wine bottle ! With this we can receive the blessings
     of the God of Light.

     Justin
     We'll be in big trouble if we get thrown out of Ruku Village when
     we're trying to get to the 'End of the World'......

     Justin :
     OK, Lets take it!

             The Elder's Tale


       IN THE ELDER'S HUT

       Elder
       Mm.. so you truly have recovered the wine of the Light God..
       You've completed your task... I suppose I have no other choice
       now.. Let us partake of this wine together.

       Justin
       Huh?! Drink wine?!

       Elder
       If you drink this, the God of Light will recognize you as a
       member of this village.. Even if you don't really drink it, it
       will probably be alright if you just purse lips as if you were
       really drinking it.. You could also just leave..

       *** Talk to the elder again.

       Elder
       It will be alright for you to just purse your lips... Now what
       are you going to do?

       Justin
       Mmm... so it's alright if just pretend to drink it?

       Elder
       The God of Light will probably recognize you, but..

       *** Talk to the elder yet again.

       Elder
       Speak not of evil. Resolve yourself. Discard all unreasonable
       thoughts..

       Justin
       What, what're you talking about all of the sudden? This isn't
       related to what we were talking about before...

       Elder
       I heard the details from Lem. You want to cross the World's End,
       correct? In that case, you must travel throught the Forest of
       Mist..

       Feena
       That's right. And we need a fog-lifting nut to do that.

       Elder
       Mmm.. The fog-lifting nuts are rare in this village.. We are not
       quick to hand over such valuable objects to outsiders... Speak
       not of evil. Completely resolve yourself.

       Justin
       What the heck are you talking about, you miser!? Why do you keep
       spouting out, "resolve yourself", "resolve yourself"!?

       Elder
       What a rude child.. It is not miserliness, the fog-lifting nut
       grows deep within the Forest of Mist, and it is essential for our
       survival.. Our ancestors received one from the honorable
       Kouyokujin. It has been passed down for generations. It is our
       treasure.

       Feena
       The "honorable Kouyokujin" you say? The Kouyokujin from the
       Legend of Enjule..?

       Justin
       Elder, sir! You must know a legend about Enjule here too, right?!
       Tell me all about it, please!

       Elder
       Oh, ho! Well.. it's just a story.. It's been a long time..
       According the ancient saga of our village... A very looong time
       ago this world was enveloped in light. They say it was a splendid
       world. We were protected by the Kouyokujin, all was peaceful, and
       people neither grew old or sick they say. A time came, however,
       when one of our ancestors wanted to become a Kouyokujin. He stole
       one wing of the Kouyokujin.. The dead wing was useless in the
       end.. When our ancestor attempted to attach the wing to his back
       it transformed into darkness itself.. The darkness quickly
       covered our village. Plants withered, animals died, and we lost
       our beloved light! That's what happened! In order to prevent the
       darkness from spreading throughout the entire world, the
       Kouyokujin created a huge wall to stop its advance.

       Justin
       That must be the World's End..

       Elder
       Right, our ancestors were left on this side of the wall in their
       dark village, but the Kouyokujin threw them a mysterious seed
       from the other side that can extinguish darkness. In time, the
       darkness transformed into mist, and the seed, now known as the
       fog-lifting nut, allows us to move in and out of our village.
       Without the nut, not even the villagers of Ruku can move through
       the Forest of Mist.

       Justin
       Hmm... so it's a seed from the Kouyokujin? Ooh, now I really want
       one.. So what's the other side of the wall like now?

       *** Talk to the Elder again.

       Elder
       It is said that a blessed world lies on the other side. According
       to the ancient saga, when our body is destroyed, our spirit
       returns to the other side of the wall.

       Feena
       Hmm.. What a mysterious tale..

       Elder
       Do you truly intend to scale the wall? You must truly not speak
       of evil, renounce all evil intentions. None shall return alone.
       Now.. you must rest today. You should stay at Lem's house. Lem's
       parents have told me they wish to thank you.

       Sue
       I'm already beat! How about you, Justin?

       Justin
       Let's see.. Well, I guess we can take it easy today!

       *** Go to Lem's house and talk to Lem.

       Lem
       Hey, are you going to stay here today? Please do!

       Justin
       Oh, ok.

       Lem
       Yay! I'm saved!

       Justin
       You're saved?

       Lem
       Well, if I'm alone, I think my father is going to punish me..

       *** Talk to Lem's dad.

       Dad
       You were granted permission from the elder, I see! Well then,
       Justin and his friends are our honored guests! You can take it
       easy now. We're really indebted to you for saving Lem. Still..
       I'm going to have to punish him for breaking a law of the
       village.

       *** Talk to Lem's mom.

       Mom
       Are you done listening to the elder speak? It sounds as if
       traveling to the World's End is going to be an ordeal. Now as a
       reward for saving Lem, I'd like to offer you the chance to stay
       at our house for tonight, ok?

       *** 3 Choices
       1. Eat dinner and stay for the night.
       2. Don't stay for the night.
       3. %%%%Data Save%%%%

       *** Choose no. 1.

       Mom
       Ok, you'll eat dinner, and rest up for your journey. In
       celebration of Lem's safe return, I've prepared quite a feast.

       Lem
       Yay~~! Mom's food is really delicious!

       *** They have dinner.

       *** Select yourself.

       Feena
       My clothes got drenched in all that mist. I need to take a bath.

       Sue
       Ok, let's go in together, Feena (translator's note: this is
       common practice in Japan, and apparently this world too). No
       peeping, Justin!

       Feena
       Or perhaps Justin would like to come in with us?

       Justin
       Huh!! Wh, wh, wha!?

       Feena
       It's just a joke! You really are quick to believe things, Justin!

       *** Meanwhile, within the airship of the Garlysle Army...

       Soldier
       Commander, we've found it! It's to the northwest! We've confirmed
       it to be the sub-human village! Our squads have followed the
       sub-human child through the Forest of Mist and have discovered a
       clear path!

       Leen
       ... Just as you planned, Cmdr. Myuren.

       Myuren
       But our objective is merely to acquire a sample. Do not forget
       this. Our operation must be planed around this goal! Begin
       landing procedures! Make preparations immediately!

       Soldier
       Yes, sir! I will take my leave now, sir!

       Myuren
       I'm leaving you in command of this opearation, Leen.

       Leen
       Understood, Commander. Certainly... I'm certain I will acquire
       the final fragment!

       Myuren
       ...Can you feel the presence of the final piece?

       Leen
       Yes, sir!

       *** Back at Lem's house..

       Sue
       What on earth is that noise!? It sounds like a train or
       something...

       Justin
       No, it's too loud to be a train. What could it be!?

       Lem
       I saw it from the window! It's some huge black thing floating in
       the sky! And those guys that kidnapped me came out of it and
       started running toward the mountain!

       Justin and Feena
       The Garlysle Army!

       Justin
       But how did they find this place?

       Feena
       We should worry about that later, let's go!

       *** Leave Lem's house.

       Voice
       It's horrible, Elder! They're heading toward the mountain of the
       God of Light and they want the object we have enshrined there!

       Villagers
       What should we do, Elder? That venerated object protects Ruku,
       and if it's stolen this village will be destroyed! What should we
       do if they take it from us... At a time like we this, we need
       your wisdom, Elder!

       Elder
       First of all, calm down, all of you... Now, in order to protect
       the artifact there is nothing we can do but fight.. But we've
       been hidden away in this village our entire lives... We do not
       know of war.. We will probably all die.. Ah! But what else can we
       do...

       Justin
       Leave it to us, Elder! We'll drive the Garlysle Army away from
       here!

       Feena
       Wait, wait just a second, Justin!

       Sue
       Do you really think we can do that, Justin?

       Justin
       There's noone else in this village that can fight! We gotta do
       it...! And we are Lem's friend, right? Naturally one would want
       to save a friend's village!

       Feena and Sue
       He is our friend..

       Feena
       Right, since he's our friend, we have to do it.

       Sue
       Alright, let's kick those goons out of here!

       Elder
       Goodness! What reassuring children! You will truly save this
       village? I wish you luck. Please protect the Light God's
       artifact!

       Justin
       Leave it to us! Let's go team!

*** With each step drawing them closer to the famed place known as "World's
End", Justin, Feena, and Sue at last depart from Luku village. Before
finally arriving at the World's End, however, the trio must first find
their way through the Great Forest of Mist, a sea of trees so thick with
fog as to make travel through it impossible without magical assistance...

     JUSTIN
     All right . . . I'm gonna give this kiriyoke nut a try . . .

*** Justin hefts the magical seed in his palm, which sparkles briefly, then
hurls the nut into the mist with a shout. The fog around them illuminates
with a blinding flare, and when the three can see once again, the
impenetrably thick blanket of fog has cleared, leaving only a thin mist
behind.

     JUSTIN
     I did it! The fog lifted!

     SUE
     Amazing, Justin!
     But . . . I guess it was the kiriyoke nut that was amazing, not you
     exactly . . .

     JUSTIN
     Hey, hey . . . c'mon, Sue . . . you don't mean that, do you?

     FEENA
     Ahahahahaha! Well, let's go, you two!

*** The group eventually reaches a small clearing, a place that seems rather
more peaceful than the rest of the vast forest.

     FEENA
     It seems safe around this place. Let's camp here for the night.

*** Camp

     FEENA (pick Justin)
     Hey Justin . . . There's still things I want to talk to you about. I'd
     like to continue for just a little longer . . .

     SUE (pick)
     Even though the fog's finally cleared, I still can't tell at all which
     way we need to go, you know . . .
     . . . and even though the World's End looked super close from the
     mountain, we've been walking forever and we still haven't got there!

     JUSTIN
     We've come pretty far, yeah . . . but just a little farther, Sue.
     Let's do our best, okay?

     FEENA (pick)
     I still can't believe we're adventuring in the Great Forest of Mist
     and searching for the World's End!
     This is really an adventure, isn't it? It never felt this way working
     at the Adventurer's Association.
     I wonder how far apart this is from New Parm? We can't see the lights
     from Luku village anymore, either . . .

     JUSTIN (pick Sue)
     Didn't the World's End look awesome from back on top of Koujin
     Mountain? It's gonna look even more awesome close up!

     SUE
     Our adventure is already turning out to be different from what we
     thought. I got you, Justin . . . I'll try a little harder.

     JUSTIN (pick Feena)
     But it was a surprise . . . that Feena's sister -- I mean, Leen -- was
     that woman in the army.

     FEENA
     . . .
     I never thought I would meet my sister again like that. To think, that
     my gentle sister . . .
     And besides that . . . she said she was searching for Spirit Stones.
     What on earth could she be doing?

     SUE
     C'mon, Feena, cheer up! I'm sure there's gotta be a reason, certainly!

     JUSTIN
     That's right! Leen doesn't seem like a bad person. The guys giving the
     orders have definitely gotta be the ones who're bad!!

     SUE (pick)
     Yeah, and wasn't Leen that soldier who dropped the key, too? She did
     that on purpose, didn't she?

     JUSTIN
     Hmmm . . . I never thought of that before, but when you say that, it
     makes sense . . . or maybe not . . .

     SUE
     It's gotta be true. I mean, she's Feena's sister. She can't be a bad
     person, can she?

     FEENA (pick)
     . . .

     JUSTIN & SUE
     Feena!?

     FEENA
     I'm sorry . . . you're worried about me. I guess this isn't like me,
     huh Justin?

     JUSTIN
     Yeah! I like you best when you're smiling, you know!

     FEENA
     Ahahaha . . . Justin, that's just like you! Well, let's go to sleep.
     You're tired, aren't you, you two?

     SUE (pick)
     I'm glad Feena's happy again. It'd be no fun if everyone starts
     feeling blue after we've just began this adventure. Let's try our best
     again, okay?

     FEENA (pick)
     Well, let's prepare for tomorrow, and sleep tonight.

     FEENA (pick Justin)
     Good night, Justin, Sue . . . Good night, Leen . . .

*** The following morning, Justin, Feena and Sue set out on their journey
again. The three continue on through the forest, and eventually reach a
section of the river where the water has overflowed the banks, creating a
placid pool of water that spreads across a wide part of the forest.

     FEENA
     A lake . . . I wonder if this a dead end?

     SUE
     Look, Justin! The river's running through the middle of the lake!?

     JUSTIN
     What the heck!?

*** Strangely enough, the party is able to walk upon the water as if it is
nonexistant, and come to a rock which allows them to cross the river.

     JUSTIN
     Well, look at that! This lake's a mirage!

*** After crossing the river, the group travels on through the seemingly
endless forest until suddenly, the forest opens up a bit, and then . . .

     FEENA
     W-Wait a minute, Justin! Look at that!!

*** Feena races up onto a rocky mound, pointing at something excitedly. Justin
and Sue hurry after her, reaching the top of the mound. They all look in
the direction that Feena is pointing, and see a massive wall stretching
either way out of sight. The three naturally turn their gazes upward,
looking for the top of the wall . . . and realize that it is obscured by
the clouds far above. At long last, Justin, Feena, and Sue have reached the
place they have only dreamed about prior to this moment: the World's End.

     JUSTIN
     We made it, finally! The World's End!!
     I always said that we'd definitely make it, no matter what!!

     FEENA
     Yep, it was just as you said, Justin. But can we really climb it, I
     wonder . . . ?

     SUE
     Really, really! This wall's sooo high!!
     I can't see the top at all.

     JUSTIN
     What are you talking about! We've come all this way and yet I hear you
     saying that it's impossible?

     JUSTIN
     Of course we can climb it!
     And besides . . . to adventurers, there's nothing that can't be done!!

     SUE
     Oh, Justin . . . it's always the same with you . .

     FEENA
     But . . . he's right, you know?

     If we all work together, we'll manage to make it somehow!

     FEENA
     Yes, let's go. Hey, doesn't it look climbable over there?

*** And so the group sets out to begin climbing the mammoth structure that is
World's End. The hundereds of structures jutting out from the wall and the
myriad of passages running through it offer the adventurers a way to climb
the towering barrier, but not without difficulty. The wall is littered with
dangerous traps, and moving architecture sometimes offers the only way to
proceed higher. Some of the mechanisms must be triggered by switches and
the like as well, so the journey is not easy. However, the party seems to
make good progress, and they eventually arrive at a ledge that is wider
than the many others they have already seen.

     FEENA
     Whew, we've come pretty far, haven't we?
     It seems safe here, so shall we rest for a little bit?

*** Camp

     FEENA (pick Justin)
     Justin? You want to go to sleep early? Stay awake for a just a little
     longer!

     SUE (pick)
     I'm so proud that we're actually up here on World's End. I mean, it's
     so tall!
     We can see from as high as the birds do, you know! I was so surprised.

     JUSTIN
     But no matter how tall you say it is, there's definitely got to be a
     top.
     We should be able to reach it, no matter what!

     SUE
     You're starting that again . . . I think it's not gonna be as simple
     as you seem to think the world is, Justin!

     JUSTIN (pick Sue)
     This wall is really tall, but there's definitely got to be a top.
     We should be able to reach it, no matter what!

     SUE
     I think it's not gonna be as easy as you think, Justin . . . but I'm
     here with you, so it's gonna be okay.

     SUE (pick)
     Since we're all together, we'll definitely make it over this wall,
     won't we!

     FEENA (pick)
     Look, Justin . . . we can see really far from here.
     I wonder if that place is Luku village?
     I still can't believe it . . . that we're climbing the World's End!
     And we've come all the way to this high place . . .

     JUSTIN
     Heh, you can't believe it either, huh?
     Jin and Gantsu and all the others would certainly never believe it,
     either . . .

     FEENA
     What! The adventurer Jin!?
     Are you guys his pupils!?

     JUSTIN
     Well, not his pupils exactly, but . . . Huh? Feena, you know Jin?

     JUSTIN (pick)
     Well, Feena? How do you know Jin?

     FEENA
     Whether I know him or not, he's still the discoverer Jin of the
     Plains!
     Well, I hear he's retired from active service now, but . . . he's a
     great person.

     SUE
     That's no good, Feena! You'd make Jin mad if you said that kind of
     thing.
     "Wha...? Come on! I'm not some crusty old retiree!" he'd say.

     SUE (pick Justin)
     Man, Justin, that's just like you. It's just getting fun, and you
     wanna go to sleep already!?
     C'mon, let's talk a little more. It'll be fun!

     FEENA (pick)
     I think tomorrow's probably going to be hard, too, but let's all do
     our best, okay?

     SUE (pick)
     Since we're all together, we'll definitely make it over this wall,
     won't we!

     FEENA & SUE
     Good niiight!

*** On the following day, the group continues on. Before long, the party begins
to reach the first layer of clouds, and the sunlight dims visibly. Giant
guardians of rock patrol the wall here, looking to keep the three heroes
from traveling farther, only to crumble away into rubble, or be struck down
from the wall by massive blocks of stone tumbling away away from the
massive barrier. Flying stone monsters and bats perch upon the wall at
these heights too, sometimes protecting the mechanisms that allow landbound
creatures to climb higher. Justin and his friends manage to brave the day's
peril, however, and soon reach another spot that looks promising for a
resting place.

     SUE
     Hey Justin, let's camp here for today.

*** Camp

     FEENA (pick Justin)
     You're still fine, Justin, aren't you? Let's discuss our plans for
     tomorrow on a little more.

     SUE
     Climbing this wall . . . is starting to get boring. I mean, all we see
     is the saaame scenery.

     POOY
     Puppu punpupun!

     JUSTIN
     What are you saying, Sue? Didn't Jin tell us? Keep your eyes on the
     trial ahead of you and you'll get everything you hope for. I mean,
     that's the way of adventurers!

     FEENA (pick)
     I understand how Sue feels too, though. We keep going and going, yet
     see only this wall. I wonder if there really is a top as they say?

     JUSTIN
     Feena, now look what you're saying too! We're adventurers, right?
     Adventurers keep going until the end, and they never give up!

     FEENA
     . . .
     Yes . . . Yes, you're right. Adventurers never give up.
     You know . . . Justin, you've taught me something again.

     SUE (pick)
     No matter what you say, boring is still boring!

     POOY
     Pupunpupun pupuun!

     FEENA (pick)
     Well, there's no such thing as a mountain without a summit. There
     surely must be a top, you know?

     JUSTIN (pick)
     I didn't mind the climb at all. We should finally be getting close to
     reaching the top!

*** Seeming somewhat daunted by the climb, but nevertheless in better spirits
after resting, Justin and company depart the campsite. The wall's guardians
grow even more fierce, and the traps more insidious as the party ascends
through the dark layer of clouds into sunlight. A giant, complex mechanism,
guarded by more of the enormous stone flyers, lifts the party onto a wide
open plateau of stone blocks. The sun once again retreats from view at this
time of day, leaving a dreary atmosphere behind as its light is blocked by
the gigantic wall. Exhausted from the day's ordeals and tiring of the
apparantly endless climb that is World's End, Justin, Feena, and Sue
finally trudge to a halt as they reach the top of the stairs to another
stone shelf.

     FEENA
     Let's camp here for today.

*** Camp

     FEENA (pick Justin)
     Wait a minute, Justin. We're not finished talking yet. Could you
     please stay awake just a little longer?

     SUE
     . . . I'm going home already! We climb and climb, but we're never
     gonna reach the top!

     POOY
     Pu! Pu!

     FEENA
     What's wrong, Justin? Oh, I guess you're tired, hm?

     JUSTIN
     Well, you said it. I don't know . . . I wonder this wall really does
     have a top . . .

     FEENA
     Wh-What's happened to you, Justin? It's not like you to suddenly say
     something like that, is it?

     JUSTIN
     Well, but this is totally different than we thought! When are we gonna
     decide that we're not gonna make it, huh?

     FEENA
     That . . . that's . . .

     SUE (pick)
     Ju-Justiin, Feenaa.  Please stop fighting.

     POOY
     Pupupupuu~

     JUSTIN (pick)
     Aww, who the hell ever said we had to climb this wall in the first
     place?
     Let's go home already. We did our best. It was enough to climb this
     far, right?

     FEENA
     Have you forgotten, Justin? Adventurers never give up. Didn't you say
     that?
     . . . Or was that just a lie?

     JUSTIN
     It wasn't a lie!! It wasn't a lie, I'm telling you . . . But . . .

     FEENA (pick)
     If I . . . If I had never met Justin, I don't think I would have ever
     come to this kind of place.
     I mean, I'm forgetting. The one who helped me to remember fun, and the
     true meaning of adventure . . . that was you, Justin.

     JUSTIN
     Feena . . .
     . . . Yeah, yeah, you're right! We're adventurers, aren't we!!

     SUE
     . . . Uh-huh! If the three of us work together, we'll make it over
     this wall, definitely!

     JUSTIN
     All right! We're gonna do it! Wait for us, Riethe! We will absolutely
     make it to Alent!!

     SUE (pick)
     That's right! We're adventurers, you know. We have to do our best
     tomorrow too!!

     POOY
     Pupu! Pupuu!

     FEENA (pick Justin)
     Look Justin, Sue!! Look at the beautiful starry sky!

     SUE
     Wowww, really! It's wonderful . . .

     FEENA
     The top is almost certainly close, I believe. Let's work hard,
     together!

*** The next morning, the three are awakened by a sight that seems impossible .
. . and yet, it is undeniable. Despite the sun's position in the sky,
despite the fact that its light should be blocked from view by the wall at
this time of day, slender rays of light are shining down from close above
the group's heads.

     JUSTIN
     . . . Huh!? The rising sun is shining down! Even though until now, it
     was blocked by the wall, and you couldn't see the sun until after noon
     . . .

     FEENA
     . . . and that means that . . . !!

     SUE
     That's right! It's gotta be!!

     JUSTIN
     Okay! Let's go see!!

     (If you try to walk back down the stairs here, Feena says the
     following:)

     FEENA
     Come on, let's go! Together, we will cross the World's End!

*** Justin, Feena, and Sue race up the stairs toward the bright sunlight, and...

     JUSTIN
     . . . !!

     FEENA
     I guess . . . that there is no World's End after all . . .
     . . . Look! The sunrise . . . !!

     SUE
     It's wonderful . . . It's as if the world were burning with a golden
     fire . . .! Right Justin?

     JUSTIN
     . . . Ohh . . .

*** The three watch in awe for a long time as the sun lifts above the horizon,
bathing everything in view in a beautiful golden light. After an
indeterminable period of time, they at last turn their gazes to an
odd-looking machine moving atop the center of the wall.

     SUE
     Hey, what is that, I wonder?

     JUSTIN
     (Gulp) What the heck!? That thing's moving!?

*** Sue scurries past the strange machine to the edge of the wall to get a
better look at the other side.

     SUE
     Well, we got to the top, but how are we supposed to get down the other
     side?

     FEENA
     Hmmm . . . we want to go down, but it doesn't seem like there's
     anything we can use to do that, does there? It looks impossible to
     climb down . . .

     JUSTIN
     Hey, can you hear that strange sound?

     FEENA
     Justin! Look!!

     JUSTIN
     Aaahh!!

*** Justin and Feena gawk in surprise as a strange, flying machine suddenly
zips out into the open and grabs Sue with a mechanical claw!

     SUE
     Eeek! What are you doing!?

     JUSTIN
     Wh-Wha . . . Sue!! Crap!! What are you doing to Sue!!

*** The machine, spinning and wobbling erratically, seems to gain control of
itself for a brief moment, and then, without warning, drops Sue off the
wall into the abyss below!

     SUE
     Justiiiin!!

     JUSTIN
     Waaahhh! Suuuuuue!!!!

     FEENA
     Eeeeeek!!!!

     JUSTIN
     Sue! Sue!! Damn it, I can't see her anymore . . . !

     FEENA
     Eek, Justin!?

*** Two more flying machines suddenly zoom toward Feena and Justin, each one
grappling its prey with mechanical claws before the two heroes can react!

     FEENA
     W-Wait a minute! Where do you think you're touching me!? Stop it! Stop
     it, I said!!

     JUSTIN
     Wh-What the hell are you doing! Let us go! I said, let us go!!

*** The pair of machines obediently fly out over the clouds that obscure the
ground that lies far below on the other side of the wall, and hover in
place for a moment, steadying positions.

     JUSTIN
     Ahhh, no wait!! I take that back! Don't let us go!
     Heeeyyy, Feenaaa! What're we gonna do!

     FEENA
     What're you asking me for!? Please, do something, Justiiin!
     Eeeeeeeeeeeek!!

*** The mechanical claws release Justin and Feena, who plummet into the depths
below...

     JUSTIN
     Feenaaaaaaa!

     FEENA
     Justiiiiiin!!

   ***********************************


*** A lone image of a rocky mountain that thrusts high up above a carpet of
lush vegetation is the only thing that stands out in what seems to be a sea
of chaotic dreams. At last, however, strange noises start to filter into
conscious thought from all around, and things that seemed uncertain begin
to swim into focus . . .

     VOICE
     . . . stin, Justin! Hang in there, Justin!

     JUSTIN
     Mm . . . Mmmmph . . .

*** Justin sits up groggily, his head aching.

     JUSTIN
     Mmmph . . .

     FEENA
     Justin!!
     Justin, are you all right? Do you feel funny anywhere?

     JUSTIN
     . . . What's going on, Feena? I feel like I've slept for a long time,
     but . . .

     FEENA
     Justin!!

*** Feena smothers Justin joyfully.

     JUSTIN
     Waaah!?
     Wha-What's wrong, Feena? I can't . . . breathe . . . !

     FEENA
     Ahahaha, I'm so glad!! If you had died just like that, Justin, I don't
     know what I would have done!

     JUSTIN
     Oh, that's right, we . . . We were tossed off of the top of World's
     End!!
     Feena, are you okay!?

     FEENA
     Uh-huh! I'm fine! My eyes are still going round and round a little,
     but . . . I wonder how we were saved?
     Luckily, we landed on top of this leaf . . . could that be it . . . ?

     JUSTIN
     Whoooah . . . so this is a leaf. It's incredible . . . it's so huge!
     Where on earth is this place . . .

     FEENA
     Justin, look over there . . .

*** Justin and Feena turn to look at the giant wall that now lies behind them.

     JUSTIN
     We really . . . made it over the World's End, didn't we!! Awesome . .
     .
     I mean, this is an awesome place, isn't it? This is truly starting to
     feel like an adventure, you know -- huh? Wait a minute . . .
     That's right! Sue!? What happened to Sue!?

     FEENA
     I haven't found her yet. We separated during the fall, so . . .
     But surely Sue should be close by. We've got to search for her
     quickly!

     JUSTIN
     A-All right! At any rate, we'll find her! Let's go, Feena!!

*** And so, Justin and Feena head off into this strange new world, in search of
Sue. This place is literally alive, as plants of all kinds grow everywhere.
Giant flowers and ferns are commonplace here, as are man-eating plants and
greenery that moves at will. Savage hybrids of plant and animal look to
make to a meal of the two adventurers, and barbaric devil-men accost the
heroes at every turn. Justin & Feena press on, however, and before long
reach a river cutting through the rocky valleys that crisscross along the
otherwise green bottom of the Hiryuu Valley. As they wind their way through
one of the tighter paths separated by the rock walls and overgrown plant
creatures, Justin spots something on the path that seems quite out of order
in this place so abundant with life . . .

     JUSTIN
     Huh . . . ? A lost shoe . . .

*** A feeling of dread suddenly comes over the pair of heroes, and they rush to
pick up the all-too-familiar small red shoe.

     JUSTIN
     (Gulp) Th-This . . . This can't be Sue's shoe!!

*** Picked up Sue's shoe!!

*** Justin & Feena continue on, fearing the worst, yet neither one of them
daring to say another word. Hostile creatures run rampant here, stalking
the adventurers impartially. Suddenly, out of the myriad of mysterious
jungle noises comes a welcome, familiar cry . . .

     POOY
     PuPuu! Puu! Pu~u!!

     JUSTIN
     . . . ? Isn't that Pooy . . . ?

*** Pooy flies out of a clump of plants at top speed, circling Justin & Feena
excitedly.

     POOY
     PuppuPu PuppuPu PuPuPuu PuPu.

     JUSTIN
     Wa-Wait a minute! Pooy, slow down!! Sue, what happened to Sue!?

     POOY
     PuPuPu Puu Pu!? PuPuPuu. PuuPuu PuPuPu Puu!!

     JUSTIN
     Waaiit! I said slow down, Pooy!!

     POOY
     PuPu? PuPuPuPuuPu. PuPuppuPu PuuPuuPuu!

     FEENA
     Hang on, Justin! We're getting nowhere this way. Let's allow Pooy to
     guide us!!

     JUSTIN
     R-right. You're right . . . Okay, we're counting on you, Pooy!!

     POOY
     PuPuu!

*** Pooy flies off along a nearby path and the pair follows. The path opens
into a wide clearing, where a small, makeshift house stands its ground in
the midst of the wild environment. Near the house is a cooking pot, boiling
and bubbling with vigor. Pooy stops and begins flying in circles around the
pot.

     POOY
     PuuPuPuppuu!! PuPu! PuPuPuPuPuu!!

     JUSTIN
     Pooy! Sue . . . What happened to Sue!?

     FEENA
     . . . ! Ju-Justin!! Look over there! See, next to the pot!

     JUSTIN
     Huh, next to the pot . . . ?

*** Justin & Feena run over toward the trendy little green bag lying on the
ground near the pot. This, too, is familiar.

     JUSTIN
     Th-This can't . . . be Sue's bag!! D-Don't tell me that . . . that pot
     . . .

*** They gape at the pot in disbelief, unable to come to grips with the idea of
what has apparantly happened to poor Sue.

     FEENA
     Wh-Wh-Wha . . . What're we gonna do, Justin?

     JUSTIN
     D-Don't be stupid! Slow down, Feena!!

     FEENA
     B-But . . .

*** At that moment, a giant man, covered by a heavy, plated suit of armor and
wearing an enormous, horned helmet, strides into view. Justin & Feena,
upset and anxious to know what has happened to their friend, rush to
confront the man.

     JUSTIN
     Hey, you! Is that your pot!? Where's the stuff that was in it!!

     GIANT MAN
     If there was anything in the pot, I've eaten it up. There's nothing
     left.

*** Unable to bear the horrible thought of her dear friend being cannibalized,
Feena groans and faints dead away.

     JUSTIN
     Feena!!

*** Justin rushes to Feena's side, kneeling next to her.

     JUSTIN
     Damn it!!

*** Unable to revive Feena, Justin rises, turns, and walks toward the man with
angry determination in his eyes. He draws his weapon, stepping into a
battle stance.

     JUSTIN
     All right, come on, let's go! Because of this, I'm gonna make stew out
     of you too!!

     GIANT MAN
     Hmph! A duel, man-to-man, eh?

*** The man lifts a massive blade out of its scabbard and draws it skillfully
into a classic back middle position.

     GIANT MAN
     Very well! I accept your challenge!! I am Gadwyn, Knight of Daito!

*** Driven by anger as he is, Justin is still no match for the giant knight,
and quickly falls to the power of Gadwyn's mighty technique, Ryujinken.
Upon regaining consciousness later . . .

     JUSTIN
     Uh . . . Uhh . . .

     FEENA & SUE
     Justin!!

     JUSTIN
     Huh . . . Sue . . . ?

*** Justin scrambles to his feet in surprise.

     JUSTIN
     Wh-What are you doing here!? Weren't you made into stew . . . !

*** A handsome woman with warm and caring eyes, previously sitting nearby,
rises to her feet.

     WOMAN
     Ha ha ha ha. That is a dish Gadwyn prides himself on: Flying Dragon
     stew.

     JUSTIN
     Wh-Who are you . . . ?

     SUE
     Gadwyn and Dr. Alma helped me after I passed out in the woods.
     Dr. Alma's super nice. She's been just like a mom to me!

     ALMA
     I am Alma. I am the doctor of the village ahead of here called Daito.
     But it was surprising. That this child would make Gadwyn, the
     strongest swordsman in Daito, his opponent and duel with him, I never
     would have. . .

*** The mouth of the strange-looking, fish-shaped house swings open, and Gadwyn
steps out of the mouth to talk to the group.

     GADWYN
     Alma, don't say such impolite things. That boy is an excellent
     swordsman.
     Such keen swordsmanship looks good for one so young . . . It felt good
     to have such a battle after so long! Isn't that right, Justin?

     ALMA
     Good grief . . . Gadwyn, you're always like a child, saying that kind
     of thing . . .
     Well, since it seems like this child also is feeling better, I shall
     return to Daito. I'll leave the rest to you, Gadwyn.

     GADWYN
     Alma, you seem like you're in a big hurry. Hmph! Oh no, the habitual
     rains aren't . . . ?

     ALMA
     Yeah . . . it's that bad. People are beginning to pass out. I may
     possibly have to stay up all night.

*** Without another word, Alma hurries off, her face grave.

     JUSTIN
     She left . . . even though I still hadn't even thanked her . . .

     FEENA
     Anyway, let's rest. C'mon, everyone!



*** Camp

     JUSTIN
     Sorry Gadwyn. Even though you'd helped Sue, I jumped to conclusions .
     . .

     SUE
     Ahahaha! That's really just like you, Justin . . . since it was a
     severe misunderstanding.

     JUSTIN
     But you know, it wasn't just me, was it? Feena was the one who
     fainted.
     Her eyes rolled so far up into her head!

     FEENA
     My . . . My eyes did not, either! Oooh! Justin, you jerk!

     GADWYN
     Waaah hah hah hah! . . . don't worry about it, don't worry about it!
     It's a mistake anyone could have made.

     FEENA (pick Justin)
     . . . Hey, Justin? Do you want to ask Gadwyn some stuff about this
     world?
     I think it'll be useful for the adventures ahead, so . . .

     FEENA (pick)
     Still . . . just realizing that there was no end to the world made a
     terrific impression on me . . .
     But it was really a surprise to find people living over on this side
     of the wall!

     GADWYN
     It's the same way for me. I never would have imagined, even in my
     dreams, that people would come from the other side of the wall.

     GADWYN (pick Feena)
     When I first laid eyes on you, I sensed that you possessed great
     skill.
     How about it?! Shall we explore Dan Hibiki's super art together!?

     FEENA
     N-Now just a minute! Why does it have to come to that!?

     SUE (pick)
     You know, after I fainted, Gadwyn carried me on his shoulder back to
     his house.

     GADWYN
     Iya, katsugou to shita toki ni wa kono marui no ni zuibun ketobasareta
     zo. Wa ha ha ha! (Not sure how "kono marui" is supposed to fit in here
     . . . the kanji for marui here is the one that means "round", but . .
     .)
     No, when I went to put you on my shoulder, you completely refused!
     Waah hah hah hah!

     SUE
     Pooy intended to protect me, too! Isn't that right, Pooy?

     POOY
     PuPuu! Puu!

     SUE (pick)
     Hey, by the way Gadwyn, why are you living alone in a place like this,
     where there are only flying dragons, huh?

     GADWYN
     To train, of course. Even the tough flying dragons who have grown up
     lose their lives . . .
     My path in life is as that of a warrior . . . I must look at life and
     death at all times. I believe that this is the way of a man.

     GADWYN (pick)
     By the way Justin, is it really true, as you say, that the three of
     you crossed that huge wall?

     JUSTIN
     My story about the World's End is true, of course! We've come from
     across the wall on an adventure to search for the ruins of Enjoule
     civilization!

     GADWYN
     Hm, it's hard for me to believe your story so suddenly, but . . . we
     are friends who have dueled, man-to-man. When I look into your eyes, I
     can tell that you are not lying!
     If there's anything I can do for you, I'll do everything in my power
     to do it. Anything you want to know?

     *** 3 Choices

     1) Where in the world is this place, anyway?
     2) Do you know any place called Alent around here?
     3) Is the woman doctor Alma your sweetheart?

     *** Choose 2

     GADWYN
     Hm, I don't know what this thing you are looking for is like, but it
     certainly has to be far to the south.
     I've heard from people in my village that there's an ancient ruin of
     Enjoule remaining there.

     JUSTIN
     What! Really !? That's gotta be Alent!!
     Feena, Sue! We're leaving immediately! Quickly, let's get ready
     quickly!

     FEENA
     Ahaha! No way, Justin! Alent isn't going to run away, you know.

     GADWYN
     Ha ha ha. Sono iseki wa koko kara nannichi mo arukaneba tadoritsukenu
     hodo tooi chi da.
     Temae ni aru Daito no mura made nara, washi ga annaishite yarou. Soko
     de nagatabi no junbi o suru no ga yokarou.
     Ha ha ha. The land where those ruins is quite far to reach from here,
     no matter how many days you walk.
     I will guide you to the village of Daito. It would be very well to
     prepare for a long trip after arriving there. (Not sure what "temae ni
     aru" means in this context)

     GADWYN (pick)
     If there's anything I can do for you, I'll do everything in my power
     to do it. Anything you want to know?
     (Return to the choices above)

     *** Choose 3

     GADWYN
     No, Alma is only a childhood friend. I live alone in this remote place
     to train, but sometimes Alma visits me, offering medicine or to mend
     my clothing.

     FEENA
     Hmmm, that sounds like more than a childhood friend . . .

     SUE
     It does. I think Gadwyn's kinda hiding his feelings, don't you?

     JUSTIN
     By the way, Alma . . . Her face looked so serious . . . did something
     happen at the village?

     GADWYN
     Yes . . . Lately, something a little troublesome has been happening in
     Daito.
     Daito is a fishing village on the seashore ahead of here.
     It once was a village with a rich supply of delicious fish that could
     be caught . . .
     I'm sorry, but I'm not very good at telling long stories. I'll guide
     you to the village later, and it would be very well if you get the
     details from Alma at that time.

     GADWYN (pick)
     If there's anything I can do for you, I'll do everything in my power
     to do it. Anything you want to know?
     (Return to the choices above)

     *** Choose 1

     GADWYN
     This place is called Hiryuu Valley. It's the closest place to the
     World's End, and the most violent mountainous region in the world.
     It's the perfect place for a man to train and improve his skills with
     a sword.

     FEENA
     That's right . . . In this world, this place appears to be the World's
     End as well.
     In our world, it's kind of like how the Great Forest of Mist is, isn't
     it . . .

     GADWYN
     I was quite surprised, then, to find a little girl passed out in a
     place like this. Wah ha ha!

     JUSTIN
     You've helped us in a lot of ways, Gadwyn. You saved Sue for us and
     such . . .
     I'll make sure that I repay you this debt! If you're ever in some kind
     of trouble, we'll lend a hand.

     GADWYN
     Hmm . . . So, Justin, can we think of that as a promise between men,
     then?

     *** 2 Choices

     1) Such a formal promise isn't . . .
     2) Of course! A promise between men, then!

     I can't trust you unless it's a promise between men . . .
     If you're a man, then your word is your unbreakable promise . . .

     SUE (pick)
     A promise between men, huh . . .? Isn't that okay?! Promise him,
     Justin!

     FEENA (pick)
     A promise between men is . . . Don't give your word without thinking
     about it, Justin.

     JUSTIN (pick Gadwyn)
     Gadwyn . . . You're an awfully formal guy, aren't you . . .
     . . . Well, anyway, if you're ever in some kind of trouble, we'll lend
     a hand.

     GADWYN

     Hmm . . . men are none other than this! I, Gadwyn, have your binding
     word.

     SUE (pick)
     We're going to Daito with Gadwyn, right? Let's hurry up and go,
     Justin!

     FEENA (pick)
     Are you sure this is gonna be okay? To promise him so rashly . . .
     I've got a bad feeling about this, but . . .

     GADWYN (pick)
     All right! Since we have exchanged promises, Justin, you are now my
     friend.
     Friend, tomorrow we will go to Daito village. For now, it is time to
     rest.

     GADWYN (pick Justin)
     Hmm . . . Well, let's sleep . . . Tomorrow, I will guide you to the
     village of Daito.

     JUSTIN
     Daito, huh . . . I wonder what kind of place it's gonna be? I'm
     looking forward to it, aren't you Feena? Sue?

*** The group slowly drops off into slumber. When the morning sun rises the
following morning, everyone awakens, packs up belongings, and quickly
prepares to continue through Hiryu Valley toward the village of Daito . . .

*** Upon arriving in Daito...


     GADWYN
     Koko ga Daito no mura da. Sugu soko ni yado ga aru. Annaishite yarou
     to omotteita no da ga . . .
     This is the village of Daito. There is an inn right there. I thought
     that I would guide you there, but . . .

     JUSTIN
     . . . n? Doushitan da yo, Gadwyn.
     . . . Hm? What's wrong, Gadwyn?

     GADWYN
     Sakki kara ki ni natteita no da ga, kita kara no kumo ga sora o
     ootteiru . . . Masaka . . .
     I noticed it a while ago, but clouds from the north are covering the
     sky . . . Oh, no . . .

     FEENA
     E . . .!? Tashika ni sora mo you ga ayashii wa. Kore wa hitoame kuru
     mitai ne.
     Huh . . . !? The sky certainly does seem strange. It looks like a rain
     shower's coming.

     GADWYN
     Mumu! Suman ga, washi wa isoide chourou to hanashi o seneba naran.
     Omaetachi wa mura no mimono demo shiteite kure.
     Hmph! Excuse me, but I must hurry and go speak with the Elder.
     Please take a look at the sights around town.

*** Gadwyn runs off.

     SUE
     Icchatta . . . Nandaka sugoku awateteta mitai datta kedo . . .
     Nande sonna ni ame ga ki ni naru no kashira . . . ?
     He left . . . He sure seemed like he was in a big hurry, but . . .
     Why would he care so much about rain coming . . . ?

     (If you go to the Elder's house, you'll see that the giant knight and
     the village Elder appear to be engaged in a serious conversation.)

     (If you speak to Gadwyn . . .)

     GADWYN
     . . . Chourou yo! Kono mama dewa taihenna koto ni naru zo!! Moshi ame
     ga furihajimetara . . .
     . . . My lord! If we do nothing, we're going to be in trouble!! If the
     rains begin to fall . . .

     ELDER
     Tashika ni sono toori ja ga . . . Nou, Gadwyn! Hontou ni ame ga
     furisou nan no ka?
     That is certainly true, but . . . Gadwyn! Does it truly look like it's
     going to rain?

     GADWYN
     Zettai ni furu to wa ien . . . da ga, ano kumo o mita toki senaka ni

     I'm not saying that it's certainly going to rain, but . . . when I saw
     those clouds, I felt a chill run along my spine . . .
     . . . hm? Oh, it's you . . . Excuse me, but I need to speak with the
     Elder here just a little more.
     I believe there is a place you can stay at around here, so would you
     please head over there? Once my talk with the Elder has finished, I
     will immediately go there as well.

     (If you speak to Gadwyn again . . .)

     Please look around the village, rest, and do as you like.
     Once my talk with the Elder has finished, I intend to go to the inn .
     . .

     . . . hm? Yes, good people? I am the Elder of this village . . . Is
     there something you need?
     I'm terribly sorry, but right now I have a serious matter to discuss.
     Could you please come again at a later time?

     (If you go to Dr. Alma's house and speak to her . . .)

     ALMA
     Oo, onushira wa! Tanuze kitete kureta no da na? Sakihodo chiryou ga

     Ah, it's you! So you've come to visit me? I just finished treating
     patients a little while ago.
     As I expected, it's that Tower of Rain and Moon that's the cause of all of
     this... I've recently come to understand very well the patients whom I take
     into my care . . . I have a feeling I've made a terrible mistake.
     From now on, I'm going to be very busy, so it would be best if you all
     relax and rest well.

     (If you speak to Alma again . . .)

     ALMA
     Sore ni shite mo, ano kumo wa . . . Daiji ni naraneba yoi no da ga ...
     Still, those clouds . . . We ought to take them seriously, but . . .

     (If you go to the inn, you'll meet up with an usually long-eared
     creature who is musing to himself aloud.)

     Hmm . . . I saw to delivering medicine to Dr. Alma . . . but it didn't
     seem like enough at all.
     I'll have to leave and come back, then, eh? (Sigh) What a pain in the butt.
     But... if everybody gets well from my medicine, my sales'll heat up too.
     What a wonderful idea, you know?!

     JUSTIN
     Ee!? Totsuzen iwarete mo naa . . .
     Huh!? That creature said . . . (literal: "mutant", but this sounds
     really derogatory to me)

     LONG-EARED CREATURE
     Datte minna shiawase ni natterun da yo.

     Because everyone will be happy, you see.
     Isn't that a wonderful thing?

     SUE
     Suggoo~~i! Shaberu usagi nante hajimete mita~a.
     Wooowww! It's the first time I've ever seen a talking bunny!

*** Sue excitedly dashes over to get a better look at the bunny.

     SUE
     Nee, chotto dake sawarasete kunnai?
     Hey, can I just touch you for a minute?

*** Sue stands up on the tips of her toes and stretches her arm out to quickly
touch an inquistive finger to one of the bunny's long, soft-looking ears.
The creature leaps up indignantly and Sue shrinks back, startled.

     LONG-EARED CREATURE

     What the heck is wrong with all of you!? Since you came in, all you've
     been saying is "a bunny, a bunny!" . . .
     If you ask me, it's you guys who've come from across the wall who look
     like strange creatures!

     JUSTIN
     E? Nande oretachi ga kabe koete kita no shitten da yo?
     Huh? How did you know that we've come from across the wall?

     FEENA

The creature jumps easily out from behind the table to stand in front of
the group, and grins.

*** Gido continues talking, ignoring Justin decidedly.

     Justin.
     "When there are no people with roles to play, he will be born." That's
     you, Justin. (Did I translate this proverb correctly?)

     JUSTIN

     continue your journey.
     If you continue your travels, you'll see many things. You'll learn
     about the world and spirit, and about yourself . . .
     . . . Well, soon I'll have to prepare to leave. I'm going to miss my
     chance to stock up on my goods if I don't, you know.

what all the fuss is about in Daito. Gadwyn shows up at the inn at a rather
late hour, and the next morning, Justin inquires about it.

     What! N-No, it can't!!

*** The giant knight runs off, obviously upset.

     JUSTIN
     Doushitan da Gadwyn, ikinari!
     What's wrong with Gadwyn all of a sudden?!

     OUTSIDE OF THE INN

     GADWYN
     Mumu . . . Tashika ni ame ga . . . Kore wa taihen da!
     Hmph . . . It's raining, all right . . . This is terrible!

*** Justin, Feena, and Sue step out of the inn just in time to watch as Gadwyn
runs off toward the center of the village.

     SUE
     Doushita no ka na, Gadwyn? Ame gurai de hen na noo!
     What's the matter with Gadwyn, I wonder? It's weird that he's acting
     this way about something like rain!

*** Feena looks thoughtful, her face serious.

     FEENA
     Uun, chigau wa . . . Douyara tada ame ja nai mitai ne. Watashitachi mo
     itte mimashou!
     Uh-uh, that's not true . . . Somehow, this doesn't seem to be just
     rain. Let's go and see, too, shall we?!

     (If you run off towards the center of the village, you'll see that the
     Elder is speaking to Gadwyn and some of the other residents of the
     village.)

     ELDER
     . . . shittoru ja rou, Gadwyn? Seirei no kago o ushinaishi, Ugetsu no
     tou no koukei o . . .
     Doku no ame ni yotte itarametsukerareta daichi. Magamagashiku somatta
     shi no kawa ano koukei o me no atari ni shite orou?
     . . . You know, don't you Gadwyn? We have lost the divine protection
     of spirit, and the scene of the Tower of Rain and Mooon is . . .
     The earth is being tortured by the poisonous rain. The dead rivers
     stained with ill-omen are just like that which can determined from the
     scene, aren't they?

     GADWYN
     Mochiron, wakatteiru . . . Yagate doku no ame wa akaku kawari, shi no
     ame to naru koto mo na . . .
     Soshite, Daito o sukuu tame ni wa denshou no toori Ugetsu no tou ni
     nobori, yuusha no yari o mochikaeru shika nai . . .
     Yes, of course, I understand . . . Before long, the poisonous rain
     will turn red, and become rain of death . . .
     And to save Daito, there is nothing that can be done except to climb
     the Tower of Rain and Moon to the path of transmission, and then bring back
     the Spear of Heroes.

     ELDER
     Dakara, itte oru no ja. Kono yuusha no udewa o uketotte kure to! Daito
     o sukuutte kure to na!!
     That is why I say this to you: Please accept this Bracelet of Heroes!
     Please, save our village of Daito!!

     GADWYN
     Washi wa sude ni kakugo o kimeteiru. Muda ni shugyou o tsunde kita
     wake dewa nai kara na.
     Da ga, chourou yo . . . wasurete oran ka? Yuusha no yari o te ni ireru
     ni wa futari no yuusha ga hitsuyou na no da zo!
     Watashi hitori de itte mo saigo no shiren o norikoerareru ka dou ka
     wakaranai no dakara na!
     I have already prepared for this. My training would have been useless
     otherwise.
     But, my lord . . . aren't you forgetting something? To procure the
     Spear of Heroes, two heroes are required!
     If I go alone, I still do not know how I could overcome the last
     trial!

     ELDER
     Da ga, onushi shika oran no da yo. Yuusha to yoberu sonzai wa na . . .

     But Gadwyn, there's no one else here besides you. Anyone else existing
     who could be called a hero isn't . . .

     GADWYN
     Fumu . . . komatta . . .
     Hmmm . . . I am at a loss.

     JUSTIN
     Nanda yo Gadwyn!! Ore ga issho ni itte yaru yo!
     I know, Gadwyn!! I'll go with you!!

*** Justin comes running up to meet the group of villagers.

     ELDER
     Nanja . . . Mada honno kodomo dewa nai ka. Sono kimochii ga ureshii
     nou . . .
     What . . . you're just a child. I am happy that you feel determined to
     help, but . . .

     GADWYN
     Chourou, anadotte wa ikan zo. Justin wa ano sekai no hate o koete kita
     hodo no kyousha da!
     My lord, you musn't make light of him. Justin is none other than the
     man who came from across the World's End!

     ELDER
     Na-Nan to? Ano hate shinai kabe o konna kodomo ga!?
     Wh-What? This child . . . not the wall at the end of the world!?

*** Gadwyn steps up to Justin, eyeing him seriously.

     GADWYN
     Justin . . . Korekara ikaneba naranu Ugetsu no tou wa osoroshiku
     kikenna basho da.
     Seirei no kago ga nakereba, sono inochi sara ushinau koto ni narou.
     Honrai naraba chikadzuku koto mo yurusaren no da. Soredemo, soredemo
     itte kureru no ka?
     Justin . . . The Tower of Rain and Moon that I must go to is a terrible,
     dangerous place.
     Without the divine protection of spirit, you may lose your very life.
     I could never forgive myself if something happened to you. Even yet,
     even yet . . . do you still want to go?

     JUSTIN
     Kiken o osoretetanjaa, boukensha nante tsutomannain da!
     Sore ni sa! Otoko to otoko no yakusokushita jan ka! Komatta toki wa
     tasukeautte sa!!
     Fear of danger isn't fit for an adventurer!
     And besides, we made a promise between men, didn't we?! When there's
     trouble, we'll help each other!!

     GADWYN
     Gaa ha ha ha, sou de atta! Omae to kono washi to wa otoko to otoko o
     chikai atta, naka de atta!
     Gaaaahh hah hah hah! . . . that's right! You and I swore an oath,
     man-to-man . . . as friends!

*** Gadwyn turns to face the Elder again.

     GADWYN
     Chourou! Denshou no toori futari no yuusha ga sorotta no da! Kore de
     Daito no mura wa sukuwareru zo!!
     My lord! The path of transmission has been completed by the two of us!
     With this in mind, we can save the village of Daito!!

     ELDER
     Oo! Kesshinshite kureta ka!!
     Saa, futari tomo koko e . . . Kono densetsu no yuusha no udewa o
     sazukeyou. Fusawashii nushi o ete, hikari kagayaku de arou.
     Daito no yuusha ni seirei no michibiki ga aran koto o!
     Oh! So you have determined a way!!
     Well, then to you two . . . allow me to grant this legendary Bracelet
     of Heroes. Give it to its rightful master, and its light will shine
     brilliantly.
     Let spirit guide these heroes of Daito!

*** Just then, Feena and Sue, who appear to have been listening to the
converstaion, approach the group. Feena looks rather serious.

     FEENA
     Justin . . . Honto ni iku ki na no?
     Justin . . . Are you really serious about going?

     JUSTIN
     Mochiron sa! Otoko to otoko no yakusokunan da ze.
     Hehehe, mite kure yo, Feena. Kakko ii darou?
     Of course I am! This was a promise between men, you know.
     Heh heh heh, look Feena. Don't I look cool?

*** Feena steps right up to Justin, about to give him a piece of her mind.

     FEENA
     Nani ga otoko to otoko no yakusoku yo! Yuusha nante iwarete
     maiagatteru dake ja nai! (What does "maiagatteiru" mean?)
     Wazawaza kikenna koto ni kubi o tsukkomu nante boukensha toshite wa
     niryuu . . . uun, sanryuu na no yo!!
     What's your man-to-man promise about?! Calling you a hero doesn't just
     make you one!
     If you're always sticking your neck into danger, then you're no better
     than a second-rate . . . no, a third-rate adventurer!!

     SUE
     Doushita no Feena . . . Doushite sonna ni okotteiru no . . . ? Nanka
     itsumo to chigau mitai.
     What's the matter, Feena? . . . Why are you so mad . . . ? You're
     acting differently than you usually do.

     JUSTIN
     Sou da yo. Nanka hen da ze? Kikenna koto ni chousensuru kara boukensha
     nan jan ka!
     Daijoubu! Umaku iku tte! Ima made mo zutto sou datta darou?
     She's right, Feena. Isn't there something wrong with you? Aren't we
     adventurers because we challenge danger?!
     It's all right! Let's go, and with no hard feelings. We've always been
     friendly before now, right?

     FEENA
     Justin . . .

     GADWYN
     Yooshi, Justin! Kakugo wa dekiteiru you da na. Soredewa, sassoku
     shuppatsu da!
     Mezasu Ugetsu no tou wa Daito no mura no kita ni aru!
     All right, Justin! It seems like we're ready, so let's leave right
     away!
     Our goal, the Tower of Rain and Moon, lies north of Daito village!

     (If you speak to the Elder before leaving . . .)

     ELDER
     Tanomu zo. Onushitachi dake ga tayori da.
     Ugetsu no tou no saijoukai ni aru yuusha no yari o mochikaeri, kono
     Daito no mura o sukuutte kure . . .
     Gadwyn yo, onushi nara dekiru, washi wa sou shinjite oru zo.
     We're counting on you. You are the only ones we can rely upon.
     Please, bring back the Spear of Heroes from the top floor of the
     Tower of Rain and Moon, and save our village of Daito . . .
     Gadwyn, if anyone can do it, I believe you can.

     (If you speak to the Elder again . . .)

     ELDER
     Kanarazu ya, Ugetsu no tou no saijoukai ni aru yuusha no yari o
     hikinuite kuru no da. Washi wa onushitachi o shinjite oru zo.!
     Be sure to pull out the Spear of Heroes from the top floor of the
     Tower of Rain and Moon. I believe in you all!

*** The group sets out for the Tower of Rain and Moon that looms ominously 
to the north, determined to save the village of Daito . . .






   ************************************
   *                                  *
   *   21 Mountain of Rain and Moon   *
   *                                  *
   ************************************




*** The party soon reaches the mountains that lie to the north of Daito
village, and begin the trek up into the foothills through the pouring rain.
Poisonous rivers of vile sludge flow through furrows that run down from the
peaks and in between the smaller mounds of rock. The downhill progress of
the rivers is further aided by the downpour, and the combination of falling
rain plus poison-filled muck creates a perfect breeding ground for fungi of
many types. Mushrooms larger than even Gadwyn grow here and there, while
some that are not so large cling to the steep, rocky cliffs like steps,
allowing the party to ascend parts of the foothills which would otherwise
be too treacherous to climb. Giant, plant-like creatures, similar to the
ones found near World's End, but more sinister and eerie, roam the hills in
droves here. Nevertheless, the four heroes press on, and soon find
themselves closing in on the steeper part of the mountain range.

*** Gadwyn pauses briefly, a strange contrast to his recently usual sense of
urgency. The sound of the rain striking the tormented earth makes even his
deep voice a bit difficult to hear.

     GADWYN
     Ame ga tsuyokunatte kite iru . . . Seirei no kago ga sukunakunatte
     kita to iu koto ka . . .
     The rains are becoming stronger . . . Is this the divine protection of
     spirit fading . . . ?

     FEENA
     Nee . . . Yappari hikikaesubeki yo. Kore ijou susumu to kiken da wa,
     kitto!
     You know . . . We should turn back, after all. If we advance any
     further from here, there's surely going to be danger!

     JUSTIN
     Daijoubu da yo, Feena! Ore ga iru jan ka!
     It'll be okay, Feena! I'm here, aren't I?!

     FEENA

     Mou! Souiu koto ja nai no! Nani ka iyana yokan ga suru no yo . . .
     Stop it, already! That's not what I'm talking about! I've got a bad
     feeling about this . . .

*** The group starts to move forward again, but Justin, abashed though he is by
Feena's remark, speaks up after a few steps.

     JUSTIN
     Are? Doushita no ka na!? Nanka shintai ga piripirisuru . . .
     Huh? What's happening, I wonder!? My body feels hot, or something...

*** Gadwyn looks shocked by Justin's statement, but his fearful expression
betrays his knowledge of a terrible situation.

     GADWYN
     Ikan! Kono atari no ame wa doku no ame da!! Mamonaku kono ame wa
     akakukawaru!
     Nokosareta jikan wa ato wazuka da! Isogu zo, Justin!!
     No! The rain around here is poisonous!! Before long, it will become red!
     Our time remaining is short! Hurry, Justin!!

*** The party continues on, moving up along the inclined terrain steadily, yet
still unable to see their goal ahead. Their current surroundings are what
demand immediate attention, however, for the landscape has suddenly become
dotted with mushrooms large as houses . . . and apparently, the great
growths are indeed houses to strange, foul-looking creatures who live
inside of them. These creatures are known as the Krepp, beings who appear
to be akin to vultures, and look just as ugly, but which are humanoid in
stature and appear to more intelligent than mere animals. Though their
language is guttural and unfamilar, it seems all too clear that the Krepp
are not in the least bit happy to see the adventurers, and they attack the
party savagely, using weapons that are surprisingly well-made and even
crude forms of sorcery in attempts to beat the heroes down. Gadwyn, Justin,
Feena, and Sue still doggedly continue up into the mountains, however,
despite battling the seemingly endless hordes of enemies seething around
them. At last, the party walks out from a cluster of mushroom houses into a
clear area, where they can see a tall, semi-organic stucture looming high
above the rest of the natural buildings, and the group realizes that they
have reached their destination: The Tower of Rain and Moon.






   **************************************
   *                                    *
   *   22   The Tower of Rain and Moon  *
   *                                    *
   ************************************** 




*** The architecture seems to indicate that this was once an elegantly
constructed spire, but upon entering the Tower of Rain and Moon, the heroes find
that it has been overrun by the vile Krepp. The monsters have claimed the
tower for their own, turning what was before most likely a place of beauty
and tranquility into a squalid, overpopulated barracks for their kind. The
walls and floors are covered with fungi, even more so than the mountains
outside, and the rooms are littered with barrels, stray weapons, and
miscellaneous junk. Of course, the Krepp are everywhere as well, and are
extremely angered by the intrusion of the despised humans, with whom they
battle fiercely at every turn. Despite the overwhelming odds, the party
works to make their way through the twisting hallways, avoiding the traps
set by the Krepp as best they can.

*** Eventually, the group steps up into the third floor of the tower to find
themselves in a massive chamber. In the center of the chamber, resting on
top of a huge, green, crystalline dais, is a throne much larger than one
suitable for any man to sit upon. A lone Krepp stands hunchbacked in front
of the massive throne, and turns to face the adventurers as they approach
the dais. The birdman's rasping voice, though unintellible, bears an
unmistakeably hostile attitude.

     KREPP
     Guagerattsu! Zupadou gidabeba!
     Gwagehrattsu! Zupadow geedah bebah!

     GADWYN
     Mu . . . are ka! Kureppu o hikiiteiru no wa kokoroshite kakare,
     Justin!
     Hmph . . . so that's the one! Deal with this leader of the Krepp with
     care, Justin!

     JUSTIN
     Makasetokette!! Kedo saa . . . yowasou da yo naa, aitsu.
     You got it!! But, y'know . . . he looks pretty wimpy.

     KREPP
     Geeeeee!
     Geeeeeh!

*** The Krepp screeches, and charges down toward Justin, swinging its sickle
wildly. It spins and leaps into the air, and as it lands, a black aura
begins to pulsate around its body. Space around and within the creature's
form seems to contort in upon itself, and when the laws of physics appear
to have sorted themselves out again, in place of the frail-looking Krepp
towers an enormous, four-headed serpent!

     JUSTIN
     Ge, kawarimi shiyagatta!!
     (Gulp) It mutated!! (lit: converted, adapted)

     GADWYN
     Hirumuna, Justin!! Chikara o awasereba, katenu aite dewa nai. Iku zo!!
     Don't flinch, Justin!! If we work together, as comrades, we cannot
     lose. Let's go!!

*** The giant serpent is a fearsome opponent, but still it is no match for the
power of the four heroes. Victory!

     SUE
     Yatta ne, Justin! Ato wa yuusha no yari o nuku dake ne!
     We did it, Justin! Now we just have to draw out the Spear of Heroes!

     GADWYN
     Umu, migoto da, Justin. Iyoiyo ato wa saigo no shiren o nokosu nomi!
     Mmm, well done, Justin. Finally, the only thing left is the last
     trial!

     JUSTIN
     Sousou! Nokotteru no wa saigo no shiren dake . . . tte.
     Ee!? Sakki no kaibutsu ga saigo no shiren dattan ja nai no ka yo!?
     Yeah, yeah! The only thing left is the final . . . trial.
     Huh!? You mean, that monster wasn't the final trial!?

     GADWYN
     Chikara dake de taoseru you na mono naraba, washira rekisen no yuushi
     ni totte ma no shiren to wa yobenu.
     Kokokara saki koso ga washi to omae no otoko ga tamesareru basho na no
     da. Saa, iku zo, Justin!
     If it were something that only required strength, it wouldn't be a
     serious trial for veterans like ourselves.
     You and I will be truly tested from here on. So let's go, Justin!

*** Behind the throne is a massive crystalline plate set into the floor. Justin
steps onto the plate, and the decorative columns of stone begin to to
shift, rumbling as they move. The pillars eventually reach positions where
they make the shape of an arc, and each one sinks into the floor to a
specific depth. Once again, all of the columns lock into position, and the
top of each splits into circular wedges of stone. The pieces slide into
place, forming a series of steps leading up from the lowest column, whose
top is close enough to the floor of the chamber to reach, to the highest
one. The stone plate on top of the highest pillar dematerializes, and a
column of light shines up from within the pillar of stone.

*** The party climbs the series of platforms to reach the top, and step into
the column of light. Its brightness briefly envelopes them and then fades,
revealing that the surroundings have changed. The group now stands at the
bottom of a long staircase, surrounded by blackness. Bravely forging ahead,
the heroes ascend the stairs and step up into another chamber, though this
one not quite as large as the last. The room is carved from blue stone, and
the floor of the chamber depicts a starry night sky with the planets
visible in the heavens. Two mirrors stand on opposite sides of the chamber,
and a stone monolith with an inscription rests against the wall between
them.

     JUSTIN
     Rere? Ikitomari jan ka. Doko ni anda yo, yuusha no yari nante.
     What the . . .? This looks like a dead end. Where do we find this
     thing, the Spear of Heroes?

     GADWYN
     . . . Justin yo. Koko unmei no kagami no aida de subete ga owaru.
     Kono heya koso ga kono tou no yuusha ni ataerareru saigo no shiren na
     no da!
     . . . Justin. Here, within the Mirrors of Fate, everything ends.
     For inside this room, within this tower, is the final trial to obtain
     the Spear of Heroes!

     JUSTIN
     Saigo no shiren . . .
     The final trial . . .

     GADWYN
     Shiren no naiyou wa sono sekiban ni kisareteiru yonde miru ga ii,
     Justin.
     It would be best if you read of the requirements of the trial recorded
     upon that stone tablet there, Justin.

*** Justin, Feena, and Sue move over to look at the stone tablet, while Gadwyn
steps toward the back of the room.

     JUSTIN
     . . . ??? Oi Gadwyn, nante kaitean no ka. Sappari wakannai ze.
     . . . ??? Hey Gadwyn, what's written here? I can't understand it at
     all.

     GADWYN
     Kono sekiban ni wa kou kakareteiru . . .
     . . . Unmei o kirihirakou to suru mono yo. Tsuki no kagami to hoshi no
     kagami, izureka no michi o erabu ga yoi.
     Hitotsu wa mirai e to tsuuji ima, hitotsu wa . . . shi no kuni e to
     tsuzuru de arou.
     It is written upon the stone tablet as this:
     You who seek to slice open the Mirrors of Fate should choose your path
     . . . the Mirror of the Moon, or the Mirror of Stars.
     One leads to the future, and one leads . . . to the Realm of the Dead.

*** The three look shocked as Gadwyn's reluctant explanation comes to a close,
and they anxiously rush over to confront him.

     FEENA
     Sore tte . . . machigatta kagami o erandara, shinjau tte koto? Saisho
     kara shitteta no ne, Gadwyn!?
     That means . . . that if you choose the wrong mirror, you'll die? You
     knew this all along, didn't you Gadwyn!?

     JUSTIN
     Gadwyn ga hitori ja Daito o sukuenai tte iita no wa kouiu koto datta
     no ka . . .
     So this is what you meant when you said that you couldn't save the
     village of Daito alone . . .

*** Gadwyn turns to face the party, his expression fiercely stern and
determined.

     GADWYN
     Anzuruna, Justin. Omae o shinasehasen . . . Kagami wa mazu washi
     hairu.
     Do not be afraid, Justin. I will not allow you to die . . . I will
     enter a mirror first.

     JUSTIN
     Chotto matte yo, Gadwyn! Moshimo . . . moshimo da ze, sono eranda
     michi ga machigattetara . . .
     Hang on a minute, Gadwyn! If . . . If the path you choose is wrong . .
     .

     GADWYN
     Sono toki wa Justin . . . Omae ga nokosareta kagami ni hairu no da!
     Michi wa machigainaku mirai e to tsuujiteiru.
     If that happens, Justin . . . You will enter the remaining mirror! It
     will lead to the future without fail.

     JUSTIN
     Baka, sonna koto kiiterun ja nai! Sorette Gadwyn ga shinjau tte koto
     darou!
     Ma-Masaka Gadwyn. Hajimekkara sono tsumori de . . . !?
     No, damn it, that's not what I'm talking about! If that happens,
     you'll die!
     I don't believe this, Gadwyn . . . You intended from the beginning to
     . . . !?

     GADWYN
     Omae wa tabinin no mi de arinagara, washira no mura o sukou to shite
     kureta . . . Omae no otokoke ni washi ga kotaeyou.
     Sonna kao o suruna. Washi ga shinda toki, Daito o sukuu no wa Justin,
     omae na no da zo.
     Even though you were just a traveler, you offered to save our village
     . . . I shall answer your spirit as a man with that of my own.
     Don't make such a face. If I die, the one who saves Daito will be you,
     Justin.

*** With those words, Gadwyn turns and walks towards the tablet, prepared to
sacrifice his life if necessary to save his village.

     SUE
     Shinja yada, Gadwyn!!
     Don't die, Gadwyn!!

     GADWYN
     Otoko ni wa inochi kakete demo yaritogeneba naranu koto ga aru no da .
     . .
     There are some tasks a man must carry out, even at the risk of his own
     life . . .

     FEENA
     Gadwyn . . . Kitto kaette kite ne. Seirei no kago o inotteru kara . .
     .
     Gadwyn . . . You'll come back. I will pray for the divine protection
     of spirit to watch over you . . .

*** Reaching the trial tablet, Gadwyn makes the fateful decision.

     GADWYN
     Wa ga na wa Gadwyn! Shiren no sekiban yo, ima seirei no michibiki ni
     shitagai . . .
     I am Gadwyn! Trial tablet, I now obey the guidance of spirit by . . .

*** Gadwyn turns to face the mirror on the right-hand side of the chamber.

     GADWYN
     . . . tsuki no kagami o erabu! Hirake, tsuki no kagami yo!
     . . . choosing the Mirror of the Moon! Open, Mirror of the Moon!

*** As a soft glow of white light begins to shine forth from within the mirror,
Gadwyn turns to face Justin for what may be the last time.

     GADWYN
     Saraba da, Justin!
     Farewell, Justin!

     JUSTIN
     . . . Gadwyn!
     . . . Gadwyn!

*** With that, Gadwyn steps toward the Mirror of the Moon, intending to enter
the gateway regardless of the cost. Gadwyn takes his final steps toward the
mirror and then . . . stops. A clanking of something metallic can be heard.
The giant knight steps forward, and once again the sound of metal clashing
upon metal fills the chamber. Gadwyn breaks into a run, and the metallic
noises escalate into a cacaphony of crashing sounds. All the while, Gadwyn
appears to be running in place, as if gearing up for one of his many
training excercises.

*** Suddenly, a man in tight-fitting lycra pants and a faded, striped
sweatshirt appears from within the mirror. His head is covered by curly
brown hair that looks like a Chia Pet experiment gone awry. As the man
begins to leap up and down, clapping his hands, his effeminate voice echoes
throughout the room as he cries "All right, people . . . Step with it now!"
As the group stares on in bewilderment, the strange man suddenly disappears
in a puff of imagination gone sour, and the story resumes.

*** Gadwyn stops and steps back from the mirror, then turns toward the party,
looking frustrated.

     JUSTIN
     Do . . . Doushitan da yo, Gadwyn.
     Wh . . . What's wrong, Gadwyn?

     GADWYN
     . . . Mumu, ikan! Kono kagami wa washi ni wa chisasugiru!! Ha . . .
     Hairen!
     . . . Hmph, it can't be! This mirror is too small for me!! I ca . . .
     can't enter!

*** The group looks shocked again, but then as knowledge of the situation
begins to sinks in, Justin grins over Gadwyn's plight.

     JUSTIN
     Na-Nan da yo, Gadwyn, honki de kandoushiteta no ni saa.
     M-Man, Gadwyn, I was seriously impressed for a minute there, but . . .

     GADWYN
     Waraigoto dewa nai zo, Justin! Kounattara omae ga iku shika nai!
     Saa, shiren no sekiban ni shimesu no da, omae ga susumu beki michi o!
     This is no laughing matter, Justin! Because of this, there's no one
     who can go except you!
     Well, it's shown on the trial tablet . . . the path upon which you
     must advance!

     JUSTIN
     A-Aa . . . Wakatta yo, Gadwyn!
     O-Oh . . . I understand, Gadwyn!

*** Justin walks up to the stone tablet to get a look at the inscription again.

     JUSTIN
     Wa ga na wa Justin! Shiren no sekiban yo, ima seirei no michibiki ni
     shitagai . . .
     I am Justin! Trial tablet, I now obey the guidance of spirit by . . .

     *** 2 Choices

     1) . . . tsuki no kagami o erabu!
     1) . . . choosing the Mirror of the Moon!

     2) . . . hoshi no kagami o erabu!
     2) . . . choosing the Mirror of the Stars!

     *** Choose either one

     JUSTIN
     Hirake! Hoshi no . . . (Tsuki no)
     Open! Mirror of the . . . (this should literally say "Star" or "Moon"
     here, but because I chose to write the words in reverse order since
     "Moon Mirror" sounds strange, it will have to be this way. All
     literal-translation purists please send complaints to
     livewithit@iknowyoucan.net)

     FEENA
     Yamete! Justin!!
     Stop! Justin!!

     JUSTIN
     Do-Doushitan da yo, Feena . . . ?
     Wh-What's the matter, Feena?

     FEENA
     Nani ga yuusha Justin yo! Baka ja nai no futari to mo!
     Daitai doushite Justin ga Daito no hitotachi o sukuu tame ni inochi o
     kakenakya ikenai no!?
     Shinjattara bouken datte dekinakunachau no yo! Sore demo ii no!?
     What is a hero, Justin?! You're not fools, are you, you and Gadwyn?!
     I mean, why must you risk your life to save the people of Daito!?
     If you die, you will never go on an adventure again! Is that okay with
     you!?

     JUSTIN
     Nani iidasun da yo, Feena!
     Ore ga ikanakya. Daito no hitotachi ga shinjaunda ze! Sore demo ii te
     no ka yo!!
     What the hell are you saying, Feena?!
     I have to go. The people of Daito will die if I don't! Is that okay
     with you?!!

*** Feena pauses, understanding, yet still her face grave.

     . . . Watashi ga iku . . . ! Watashi ga kagami ni hairu kara
     Justintachi wa koko de mattete.
     . . . I'll go . . . ! I'll enter the mirror . . . you and the others
     wait for me, please?

*** Justin leaps forward, obviously upset.

     JUSTIN
     Ba-Bakana koto iuna! Sonna kikenna koto Feena saseru wake nai daro!
     D-Don't say such a stupid thing! There's no reason for you to get into
     that kind of danger!

     FEENA
     Chigau wa! Kouiu toki koso boukensha toshite no keiken to kan ga daiji
     na no!
     Dakara onegai Justin! Watashi ni . . .
     You're wrong! This kind of thing is very important for an adventurer
     with experience and intuition to do!
     That's why, please, Justin! Let me . . .

*** Justin looks down at the ground, thoughtful and serious. He pauses for a
long moment, and then at last lifts his head to look at Feena again.

     JUSTIN
     . . . Wakatta yo, Feena. Dattara . . .
     Erande kure yo. Docchi no kagami ni haittara ii no ka o . . . ore,
     Feena no eranda michi nara shinjirareru.
     . . . I understand, Feena. Therefore . . .
     Choose for me. Which mirror should I enter . . . if you choose the
     path, I can believe in it, Feena.

     FEENA
     Justin . . .
     Justin . . .

*** Gadwyn steps forward, and his deep voice booms off the walls of the
chamber.

     GADWYN
     Washi kara mo tanomu. Feena, michi o shimeshite yatte kure.
     I'm counting on you too. Feena, please show him the way.

*** Feena, determined to help her friends, steps forward toward the tablet, and
tries to speak with an authoritative voice on Justin's behalf.

     FEENA
     Wa ga na wa Justin. Shiren no sekiban yo, ima seirei no michibiki ni
     shitagai . . .
     I am Justin. Trial tablet, I now obey the guidance of spirit by . . .

*** Unable to continue, Feena collapses, kneeling in front of the stone.

     FEENA
     Dame . . . Yappari erabe . . nai. Moshimo machigattetara . . . Watashi
     . . . Watashi . . .
     It's no use . . . I guess I can't . . choose. If I make a mistake . .
     . I . . . I . . .

     JUSTIN
     Feena . . .
     Feena . . .

     *** 2 Choices

     1) Ore wa Feena o shinjiteru yo.
     1) I believe in you, Feena.

     2) Seireiseki ga kitto mamotte kureru yo.
     2) The Spirit Stone will surely protect me.

     *** Choose 1

     JUSTIN
     Daijoubu da yo. Feena no boukensha toshite no keiken to kan o . . .
     iya!
     Nani yori Feena no koto o ore wa shinjiteru!!
     It's all right, Feena. I believe in your experience and intuition as
     an adventurer . . . no!
     More than anything, I believe in you, Feena!!

     *** Choose 2

     JUSTIN
     Feena ga eranda michi o ore ga susumu . . . Sorenara, issho ni susumu
     no to onaji daro?
     Daijoubu. seireiseki ga mamotte kureru sa. Imamade mitai ni, kitto...
     I will follow the path you choose, Feena . . . That way, it's the same
     as if we were going together, right?
     It's all right. The Spirit Stone will protect me. It seems to have
     been doing this all along, certainly . . .

     JUSTIN
     Dakara saa, tatte Feena!
     Therefore, stand up, Feena!

*** Feena draws encouragement from Justin's words, and pushes herself up onto
her feet again.

     FEENA
     Shiren no sekiban yo, ima seirei no michibiki ni shitagai . . .
     Trial tablet, I now obey the guidance of spirit by . . .

*** Feena pauses, as if listening to a voice that cannot be heard, and when she
speaks again, her words bear an unmistakeable aura of command.

     FEENA
     Hoshi no kagami o erabu! Hirake, hoshi no kagami yo!
     Choosing the Mirror of the Stars! Open, Mirror of the Stars!

*** A soft glow of white light begins to shine forth from within the mirror,
and now all that remains is for Justin to follow the path which Feena has
chosen.

     FEENA
     Justin . . .
     Justin . . .

     SUE
     Justin! Zettai Ze~ttai kaette kuru yo ne!
     Justin! You really, reeeeally will come back, won't you!

     JUSTIN
     Aa, mochiron sa! Jaa, Gadwyn! Feena to Sue o tanonda ze!!
     Oh, of course! Well, Gadwyn! Take care of Feena and Sue for me!!

     GADWYN
     Umu, anshinsuru ga ii!
     Daito no subete wa omae ni kakatte iru zo! Justin!
     Mmm, do not worry about them!
     Everything the village of Daito has is riding on you, Justin!

     (If you speak to Sue . . .)

     SUE
     Heiki yo ne, Justin!
     Garlysle gun to tatakatta toki mo, sekai no hate kara okkochita toki

     It'll be all right, won't it Justin!
     When we fought the Garlysle army, and when we fell off of the World's
     End, it was all right then too!

     JUSTIN
     Aa! Kondo datte umakuiku sa! Yuusha no yari o motte kaette miseru!
     Uh huh! And it'll go all right this time, too! I'll show you when I
     bring back the Spear of Heroes!

     (If you speak to Feena)

     FEENA

     I want to keep travelling with you all the way . . . I don't want you
     to leave me now . . .
     I'm begging you, Justin . . . please come back . . .

     JUSTIN
     Feena no eranda michi ni machigainai yo. Ore Feena o shinjiteru yo!
     Feena, the path you've chosen can't be wrong. I believe in you, Feena!

     (If you speak to Feena again . . .)

     JUSTIN
     Mattete kure, Feena. Ore zettai kaette kuru!
     Wait for me, Feena. I will definitely come back!

     FEENA
     Justin . . .
     Justin . . .

     (If you speak to Gadwyn . . .)

     GADWYN

     Da ga, buji ni ikite kaette kitara, omae no tame ni shichi atama no

     You're a brave lad . . . If you die, I will place the heads of three
     flying dragons at your grave.
     But, if you come back alive and well, for you I will offer the heads
     of seven flying dragons. It's a promise!

     JUSTIN
     Sonna shimpai iranai sa! Kanarazu ikitekaette kuru. Datte, ore wa
     ichiryuu no boukensha nan da se!!
     No need to worry like that! After all, I'm a first-class adventurer!!

     (If you speak to Gadwyn again . . .)

     GADWYN
     Umu, omae no kao wa shi ni yuku mono no sore dewa nai. Tanonda zo,
     Justin!
     Yes, you do not look like one who is going to meet his death. I'm
     counting on you, Justin!

*** Justin walks at last toward the Mirror of the Stars, and prepares to meet
his fate.

     JUSTIN
     . . . Iku zo! Korekoso mirai ni tsuujiru michi da!!
     . . . Here I come! From this place lies the very road which leads to
     the future!!

*** The hero closes his eyes, and steps into the mirror . . .

*** When Justin opens his eyes again, he is once more standing at the bottom of
a long stairway leading up into blackness. Strange sounds emanate from the
profound darkness all around him.

     JUSTIN
     Yappari . . . Feena ga erande kureta michi ga tadashikattan da . . .
     Arigatou, Feena!!
     I guess . . . the path Feena chose was right after all . . .
     Thank you, Feena!!

*** The stairway winds upward for a long time, and terminates at last at the
entrance to a small room. Across from the stairwell, hanging
inconspicuously upon the wall, is the Spear of Heroes!

     JUSTIN
     . . . Kore da na! Kono yari o motte kaereba iin da. Yoo~shi!!
     . . . This is it! All I have to do is take this spear home. Heeeere
     goes . . .!!

*** Justin slowly reaches up to take the Spear. As his hand touches it, the
chamber is bathed in a soft, pulsing red light that is almost too faint to
make out at first, yet growing to a clearly discernable flashing, maroon
flare. Finally, Justin pulls the ceremonial weapon down, and it comes off
of the wall easily. The flashing light subsides.

     *** Picked up the Spear of Heroes!

*** As Justin takes the Spear from its resting place, a quiet rumbling can be
detected, which gradually grows to a roar of crashing rock.

     JUSTIN
     Na-Nanda!? Nani wa okottan da!?
     Wh-What the heck!? What's happening!?

*** Giant chunks of stone begin to fall from the ceiling all around!

     JUSTIN
     Waa! Konna no kiite nai zo, Gadwyn! Hayaku kokkara nigenakya!!
     Whoa! You didn't tell me this was gonna happen, Gadwyn! I gotta get
     out of here fast!!

*** Justin races out of the chamber and down the stairs, attempting to flee the
crumbling tower. As he nears the bottom of the twisted stairway, however,
the steps ahead of him suddenly give way, tumbling into the darkness below!

     JUSTIN
     Uwa, korya yabe~~!!
     Waah! this is very baaaad!!

*** Justin turns to run back up the stairs again, but before he can leave the
platform he is standing on, the stairs above him as well break away and
drop into the blackness beneath him! The hero steps back from the edge and
scans the area quickly, desperately looking for a way out, but it seems
hopeless. Within seconds, the very ground beneath his feet gives way, and
Justin begins to fall!

     JUSTIN
     Waa!
     Wah!

*** The boy jumps in surprise as the platform begins to fall, and then plummets
into empty space! As the remaining solid ground, already far above, rushes
up and disappears from sight, a green glow begins to shine faintly from
within Justin's pocket. The glow intensifies and expands to the point where
Justin is nearly surrounded by the green light. Clearly, the powers within
the Spirit Stone have awakened once again as tiny globes of pale,
yellow-green light begin to circle Justin, bouncing and weaving around him
like miniature dancers in motion. Justin can feel his fall slowing to a
halt, and then everything is enveloped in darkness . . .

*** Back in the chamber of the Mirrors of Fate . . .

     GADWYN
     Ima norowareta tou ga kuzuresarou to shiteiru.
     Justin ga yuusha no yari o nuku koto ni seikoushita no da! Masa ni
     aistu koso ma no yuusha da!
     This cursed tower is breaking apart.
     That means Justin has successfully drawn out the Spear of Heroes! He
     certainly is a true hero himself!

     FEENA
     Sonna koto dou demo ii wa! Justin wa . . . Justin wa dou natta no!?
     Who cares about that right now! Justin . . . What's going to happen to
     Justin!?

*** The tower's shaking intensifies, and large pieces of rock crash to the
ground very close to the group.

     FEENA & SUE
     Kyaa!
     Eeek!

     GADWYN
     . . . Mumuu! Kore wa ikan!! Mohaya tou ga kuzureru made ikura no jikan
     mo nokotte inai zo!!
     Feena to Sue wa saki ni soto ni dete ore! Justin ga modoru made washi
     wa koko de matsu!!
     . . . Hmmph! It can't be!! There's already not much time left before
     this tower collapses!!
     Feena, Sue, go ahead and get out of this place! I'll wait here for
     Justin to return!!

     FEENA
     Iya yo!! Watashi koko de matteru! Justin o oite nanka . . . Justin,
     Justi~~n!!
     No!! I'm waiting here! As for Justin . . . Justin . . . Justiiiiin!!

     SUE
     Feena!? Chotto shikkari shite! Justin nara kitto daijoubu yo!
     Feena!? C'mon already! It's Justin we're talking about; he's gonna be
     okay!

     GADWYN
     Ku, kono mama de wa . . . Washi wa Justin to yakusokushita no da.
     Futari no koto wa makeserou to na.
     . . . Yamu o en!
     (Gulp) If we stay here . . . I promised Justin. I told him I'd take
     care of these two.
     . . . I'm going to put a stop to this!

*** Without no time left for words, Gadwyn reaches down and picks up the girls,
one tucked underneath each one of his massive arms.

     FEENA
     Nani sun no Gadwyn! Hanasee!! Justi~~~~~n!
     What do you think you're doing, Gadwyn?! Let go of me!! Justiiiiiiiin!

*** Gadwyn turns and runs for the exit in a last-ditch effort to escape from
the collapsing spire.

*** Outside of the Tower of Rain and Moon, the rain is still pouring down 
from the heavens. The crashing sounds of rock have grown to such a horrible din that
the tower almost sounds as if it is groaning in pain. Without a doubt, the
building is nearly about to be destroyed.

     FEENA
     Aa, tou ga kuzureru . . .! Justin . . . !!
     Aaah, the tower is collapsing . . .! Justin . . . !!

*** The three look on in vain as the entire structure shakes violently, as if
it is thrashing in the throes of death, and then, with a blinding flash,
the tower entirely . . . disappears . . .

*** Feena kneels in front of what was once the Tower of Rain and Moon, her eyes filled with grief.

     FEENA
     . . . Justin . . .
     . . . Justin . . .

     GADWYN
     Ima washiki tou wa hikari to tomo ni satta . . . Da ga, Justin yo.
     Masaka omae made mo ga issho ni . . .
     Eei! Omae dake o shinasehasen!! Kono futari o mura made
     okuritodoketara washi mo hara o kiru
     The tower and the light have now left . . . But Justin. I cannot
     believe that you are no longer together with us now . . . (what does
     washiki mean? Or imawashiki? (since ima is all in kana here, perhaps
     it's part of the word)
     Argh! I will not let you die alone!! Once I have returned these two to
     the village, I too will hara o kiru!! (need help with this idiom... it
     seems pretty easy to guess from the context, but I want to make sure)

     SUE
     Justin wa shindarishinai wa! Gadwyn no baka!
     Justin's not dead, you big dummy!

*** Sue delivers an enormous kick to Gadwyn's armored shin, and then throws
herself down on the ground in a huff, her back turned to the giant knight.
The little girl begins to shake uncontrollably.

     SUE
     Ju-Justi~n. U-Uwaaaaann!
     Ju-Justin.

     Sue starts to cry . . .

*** Suddenly, a bright pinpoint of light floating in midair shines forth from a
spot in front of the group! The three stare at it in amazement, hardly
daring to hope . . .

     GADWYN
     Mumumu, na-nani goto ka!?
     Hmmm? Wh-What is that thing!?

     SUE
     Na-Nan na no!? Ano hikari wa!?
     What is that!? That light!?

     FEENA
     Justin!
     Justin!

     SUE
     Ee!?
     What!?

*** From out of the bright speck of light falls Justin, making his entrance as
gracefully as ever.

     JUSTIN
     Ite!
     Ouch!

*** Justin sits up, wincing in pain.

     JUSTIN
     Ittee~ . . . !!
     Ouuuuuuch!!

*** Gadwyn and Sue race over to Justin, visibly relieved to see that their
friend is still alive.

     SUE
     Justin!
     Justin!

     JUSTIN
     To . . .
     Uh . . .

     GADWYN
     Kega wa!? Doko mo kega wa nai no ka!?
     Are you hurt!? You're not hurt anywhere!?

     JUSTIN
     Kono toori! Pinpinshiteru yo!
     That's right! I've never felt better!

     SUE
     Suggo~i!! Justin, honmono no yuusha mita~i!
     Awesome!! Justin, you're just like a real hero!

     GADWYN
     Migoto da! Yahari onushi wa washi ga mikonda toori no otoko datta you
     da na!
     Well done! You are truly the man I had expected you to be!

     JUSTIN
     So-Sokka? Gadwyn ni sou iwareru to terechau na.
     R-Really? That makes me feel shy, coming from you, Gadwyn. (Man does
     this ever sound femmy to me . . . wonder if there isn't a better way
     to say this?)

*** Feena, who has not yet said a word during all of this, steps a little
closer to the group, her eyes still downcast.

     FEENA
     Justin . . .
     Justin . . .

*** Justin steps forward, posturing boastfully, apparently excited from the big
knight's praise and his friends' happiness at seeing him return safely.

     JUSTIN
     Feena, doudai! Buji ni modotte koreta ze! Ore tte sugoi daro!
     Feena, whaddya think?! I came back safely! Aren't I awesome?!

*** Feena walks up to Justin and stops, studying him with a blank look on her
face. Justin stops grinning after a moment and scowls, wondering what on
earth could be the matter with the girl. At that point, much to Justin's
surprise and dismay, Feena hauls back and slaps him hard across his face!

     JUSTIN
     Na-Nani sun da yo! . . .
     . . . to . . .
     Wh-What the heck did you do that for?! . . .
     . . . uh . . .

*** Feena clutches Justin tearfully, her voice brimming with anger, relief, and
muted joy all at the same time.

     FEENA
     Justin no baka! Watashi . . . Watashi . . . Naichatta ja nai no!
     Hito no ki mo shiranai de . . . !
     Justin, you idiot! I . . . I . . . Couldn't you tell I was crying?!
     You don't know anything about people's feelings, either . . . !

*** Justin looks abashed.

     JUSTIN
     . . Feena . . .
     . . Feena . . .

     FEENA
     Yakusokushite yo, Justin. Mou nido to anna mucha wa shinai de. Onegai!
     Promise me, Justin. Promise me you'll never do anything foolish like
     that again. Please!

*** Justin pushes himself and Feena up straighter, addressing her seriously.

     JUSTIN
     Go-Gomen yo . . . Yakusokusuru! Nido to Feena o nakasenai! Chikau yo!
     I-I'm sorry . . . I promise! I'll never make you cry again! I swear!

*** Feena looks less angry and more relieved now.

     FEENA
     . . . Hidoi yo, Justin. Watashi . . . Hontou ni shimpaishitan dakara .
     . .
     . . . That was the lowest, Justin. I . . . was really worried about
     you . . .

*** Justin and Feena stand silently together for a moment, and it seems that
everything is harmonious within the group once again. Sue turns to look
away, and notices that . . .

     SUE
     Are? Itsu no aida ni ka ame ga yanderu . . .
     Huh? When did the rain stop? . . .

*** Suddenly, Sue's eyes light up, and she points at something excitedly.

     SUE
     A~!! Minna, mite mite! Hora! Niji ga mieru yoo!
     Ohhh!! Look, look everybody! See?! You can see a rainbow!

The group gazes off into the distance at the colors trailing down from the
heavens, shimmering in the water left over from the torrential rains.
Finally, the party begins to work their way back down through the
mountains, returning to the village of Daito.

                 Sue's courage


     *** Searching for a way to reach Alent, Justin, Feena and Sue have been
     told that an Enjool artifact, located in the mysterious Vanishing Hill, is
     able to transport you anywhere you want if you operate with a special gem.
     Heading to the place, they find a cave with the artifact and go search
     for the Gem, further on the right, outside the cave. After fighting
     many monsters, they manage to put their hands on the Gem.

     *** As Justin, Feena and Sue got the Gem, they are now able to
     operate the Enjool device letting them go anywhere they want. Rather
     than going to Alent, they have decided to send Sue home.

     Justin
     All right ! If we put the gem here, Sue will be able to go !

     Sue
     ....Waaaah ! Parm ! It's so nostalgic !

     Justin
     Amazing... You can really go wherever you want...

     Sue
     Justin, don't be selfish and be a pain in the neck to Feena, will you?

     Sue
     Don't forget, your tissue's in your pocket, and your toothbrush's...
     Hehehe, you're already fine without me.

     Sue
     ...Justin, Feena... Time to say goodbye... Take care !

     Justin
     But Sue... Are you sure you'll be all right on your own...?

     Justin
     I... I'm coming back with you..

     Sue
     Stop it !!! Remember your promise ? You must continue the adventure !

     Sue
     I'm leaving now ! We're going to eat a looot of Lily's cooking, aren't
     we Pooy ?

     Pooy
     Pupuppuu !

     Justin
     But Sue... You're so... And I... I...

     Feena
     ...Justin, it's...not what you think ! You've done enough, Sue !!

     *** She hugs her

     Feena
     It's enough, Sue... Don't force yourself anymore... You've already
     made enough efforts over yourself !

     Sue
     ......You... understood,... Feena... I didn't... I didn't want to...

     Sue
     I didn't want... you to remember... my last expression... as a tearful
     one !!

     Feena
     It's alright... Sue... Please, just don't do that now...

     Feena
     Because you can... go back to Parm... And cry there alone ? Okay ?

     Sue
     fee... Feena ! I wanted so much... so much... t'be with you... with
     you all !!

     Sue
     Now Feena you'll go with Justin... You'll go... And we won't be
     together anymore...

     Feena
     We will !!

     Feena
     No matter how far we go, we'll keep you in our hearts... Won't we ?

     Sue
     Y-yeah !

     Feena
     Let's promise ourselves, Sue, that we will definitely meet again...
     You, Justin, and I...

     Sue
     Thank you Feena ! I'll be looking forward to you coming back !

     Sue
     Until then, promise me you'll go on adventures together !

     *** She goes

     Sue
     ...Ah ! I almost forgot !

     Sue
     Hey, look !

     *** She twirls

     Sue
     See ? That's how I want you to remember me ! Okay ?

     Sue
     If you don't remember me this way, you'll never recognize me when I've
     become a wonderful lady !

     Justin
     .......Sue...!

     Sue
     Bye bye ! Hang in there ! Justin, I'm sure you'll see your dream
     coming true... You'll see the Enjools !

     Justin
     Suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuue !!

     *** She disappears in a flash light

     Feena
     ...Justin... We didn't leave Sue ; we're the ones who've been left
     behind...

     Justin
     ...yeah... That Sue...

     Justin
     Let's goooooooo ! I'll show you I can get to the Mermaids Sea !

     Justin
     Watch this ! Sue !

                   As lovers' time goes by...



     *** When Justin wakes up, he's at the save point inside the ship. Feena's
     not there. He goes outside to look for her...

     Feena
     Ah, Justin ! You're awake ? Look... Wherever you look, you can only
     see the sea... You can't even see one single island...

     Feena
     The moon is so beautiful. Its light is reflecting on the sea... It's
     twinkling like a jewel.

     Feena
     ...Hey Justin, why are you standing so far from me ? Come here and sit
     with me, will you ?

     Justin
     *1 Okay, let's do so
     *2 No, I'm fine where I am !

     *** Answer *1
          Why do you sit so far ? Okay, I don't have the choice...

          [she sits near him]

     *** Answer *2
          Hey, don't say that ! Be with me at least a little, will you ?

          [she sits near him]

     Feena
     Huhu... it's the first time we're only the two of us...

     Feena
     ...Hey, why don't you say anything ?

     Justin
     Weell, huh, I, huh....

     Feena
     You know, I've been thinking a lot lately, at night, when the night's
     wind is blowing...

     Feena
     Say, you know what I was thinking about ? Guess, Justin...

     Justin
     *1 Are you thinking about me ?
     *2 Maybe... About everyone ?

     *** Answer *1
          Justin
          I know ! You must be thinking about me ! That Justin, what an
          incredible, virile, strong person ! ...No, that can't be it...!

          Feena
          WRONG !

          Justin
          Of course !

          Feena
          Well, not really wrong...

          Justin
          Eh ?

     *** Answer *2
          Justin
          I know ! About Sue ! She was quite noisy, but we're sad now that
          she's not with us anymore...

          Feena
          No, not about Sue...

          Justin
          About Gadwin then ? "You mustn't neglect your training !!" (he
          quotes Gadwin). Hehe !

          Feena
          No, it's not about Gadwin. Neither Sue nor Gadwin... I was
          thinking about you, Justin.

          Justin
          Ee ! About me ??

          Feena
          Yeah...

     Feena
     I was thinking about the first time we met... It was on the sea,
     too... It brings back good memories...

     Justin
     But, Feena, at the time I was only a trainee. I didn't even know the
     Adventurers' greeting !

     Feena
     I'd never have thought we could go on adventures together...

     Feena
     But, you grew in my heart, you took a bigger and bigger place in it...

     Justin
     Feena...?

     Feena
     At the time I lived with my sister, I was really happy... But, one
     day, she left, and I was left alone.

     Feena
     Now, even if I'm happy, I'm still anxious...

     Feena
     Not because the others left... Because I fear there will be a day when
     I'm alone again...

     Feena
     Justin... From now on, we should be always together, okay ?

     Justin
     *1 Of course !
     *2 Hmm, I don't know...

     *** Answer *1
          Justin
          Of course ! We'll make other adventures together !

          Feena
          Justin, I'm relieved !

     *** Answer *2
          Justin
          Well, if I want to go on adventures, it might be risky
          sometimes... But I'll protect you, Feena !

          Feena
          Justin ! You're exagerating !

     Feena
     But, I'm relieved... Thank you Justin... If we stay always together,
     I'll probably be very happy...

     Feena
     Because it's you, Justin... If it was someone else, even if it was my
     sister, it wouldn't be the same...

     Justin
     Feena...

     Feena
     Say, Justin... Do you... like me ?

     Justin
     *1 Yes, I like you !
     *2 Why are you asking ?

     *** Answer *1
          Justin
          How could I not like you ! Sue, Gadwin, and you Feena, I like you
          all very much !

     *** Answer *2
          Justin
          Hey Feena, why are you saying that ? No one could not like you,
          you know !

     Feena
     Justin ! This isn't the "like" I wanted to hear !

     Justin
     Eh ? ...Feena... Then, which one ?

     Feena
     ............

     Justin
     ... ...Feena... Because of the Moon's light, you look so beautiful...
     B-but, of course, you're always pretty !! What am I saying ? It's
     stupid.

     Feena
     Strange, isn't it... Things that we usually don't say seem appropriate
     at this very moment...

     Justin
     Feena...

     Feena
     Justin, you know... You're very special to me...

     [BONK !]

     Justin
     Hey ? What was that noise ???

     Feena
     What ? What's happening ? Something hit us !!

     Justin
     Are you okay ? You're not wounded ?

     Girl
     A..ah...

     Justin
     Huhh !

     Girl
     Mister Hero-- ! Help me ! The pirates... the pirates !!

     *** She comes really close to Justin...

     Justin
     Hhuh hu...

     Feena
     Kyaa ! Justin !

     Justin
     Wait a minute ! I don't understand anything, what are you talking
     about ?

     Feena
     Yes ! He's right ! Get away from Justin !

     Girl
     I come from a nearby island... Pirates have attacked us...

     Justin
     What ? Pirates ?

     Girl
     Yes, but all of us have been taken by them... Only I managed to
     escape. Pleeeaase, Mr Hero, save them !!

     Justin
     It's terrible, Feena ! We gotta help them !

     Feena
     Wait a minute... Where's that island ? There's no island around
     here...

     Girl
     That island over there... Everyone is held prisoner on those mean
     pirates' island... Please Mr Hero ! Save them !

     Justin
     Let me handle this ! Mr Justin the hero is gonna beat up those mean
     pirates !

     Feena
     Hey hey Justin !!

     Girl
     Thank you ! Mr hero !

     Justin
     Haha, let me handle this ! Hehe

     Feena
     Stop flirting ! Justin ! We were just about to...!

     Justin
     We're landing on this island ! Let's go Feena !

     Feena
     ....I don't know... Justin, you pervert !

          It looks like they constructed some sort of special equipment
          right on top of the Enjule Ruins. I can also feel Gaia's power
          emanating from within....

          INSIDE THE FORTRESS

          engine room has also been secured! It's only a matter of time
          before we secure the control room!

          Soldier

          Col. Myuren is now on his way to the war room to arrest Baal!

          All troops will remain on standby until we receive new orders

          business again. However, that's all water under the bridge as
          far as we're concerned, just as long as long as you don't
          stand in our way.

          Myuren

          Giving that man the sacred spirit stone is just like giving

          Don't worry, he just lost consciousness....

          Justin
          ... ... ....
          If you talk to Leen again, she'll say that Baal went down the
          passage and is now planning to reunite all the sacred spirit
          stones into one. Once this deed is achieved, Gaia will be
          resurrected. She'll then implore Justin and Feena to stop him.

          Riethe
          Dou yara.... Koko kara chika no kodai iseki e iru mitai desu ne.
          Well now... it looks like we can reach the ancient underground
          ruins through here.

          It looks like he's using the ruins and manipulating it through
          some sort of special equipment in the room below.

     Run for it, everyone! Hurry!

     Baal
     Why do you keep on resisting? It's alright to entrust your bodies
     to me.... After all, you're the ones responsible for Gaia's rebirth.
     Now I shall give birth to that which humanity desires.... And your
     desire should be that of ruination!

     Baal
     Saa, miru ga ii. Ware ga kisama ni... wana to kami no something
     (crap... Baal's so obsessed with devouring the world that he's eating
     his friggin' words too. I can't hear that last word!!! Aaargh!
     "Wana" is trap while "kami" is god. I'll just assume that the last
     word has something to do with power....). HA, HA, HA, HA, HA! (This
     part here's pretty easy....)

     Well then, go ahead and marvel at my sight. You insignificant
     beings will be the first to be entrapped by my god-like powers!!!

     HA, HA, HA, HA!!!

                    Power and responsibility


     Soldier
     Lt. Feena, you have just been ordered to go to the operations room
     right away so you can be briefed on your next mission.

     Justin
     What the-? Feena's a lieutenant?!!!

     Feena
     Now just hold on a second. Is this some kind of joke?

     Soldier
     Oh no, ma'am, this isn't a joke! We have been given specific
     instructions that as of today, we were all supposed to treat you, Miss
     Feena, as a lieutenant. I'm sure that the situation would make much
     more sense if you talked to Col. Myuren. Why don't you go and ask him
     about it?

     Justin
     Well it's definitely strange for Myuren to come up with this kind of a
     decision all of a sudden.... What the heck's he scheming now?

     Rapp
     And on top of all of this, Gaia's just been resurrected too.... So what
     are we going to do now, Jus'?

     Justin
     ... I'm not so sure myself.... Well, first things first! Let's go ahead
     and see what Myuren has to say!

     *** The Operations Room

     Myuren
     Gaia's starting to multiply himself.... We need to make our move--and
     fast.

     Leen
     At this rate, Gaia's going to cause incredible amounts of damage to
     the neighboring vicinities... Col. Myuren.

     Myuren
     That's right. Gaia needs to keep absorbing tremendous amounts of
     energy to maintain his ongoing evolution.

     Leen
     Given his current trajectory, Jilpadoon is the next projected area
     from which Gaia will will start absorbing energy.

     Myuren
     However... without the Sacred Spirit Stone... I don't think there's any
     way that we can save the city.

     Soldier
     We are now commencing landing procedures for the Flying Battleship
     Leonrotte. Our landing site will be the Army Camp at Ruzette Mountain.

     Myuren
     Okay....

     Justin
     Hey, Myuren! What's this thing going on about Feena being a
     lieutenant?!

     Myuren
     As you very well know, Gaia's resurrection has left us facing very
     adverse conditions. Following our withdrawal from Miltary Fortress J,
     we decided to establish a camp here in the Ruzette Mountains to serve
     as our front line base for tactical operations. The way we in the army
     look at it, we only have one shot to turn the tide in our favor.

     This... is just like what exactly happened to the Ancient Civilization.
     Once a sacred spirit stone is absorbed into that thing's body, it
     breaks apart and dissolves.

     Our plan now is to combine the power of the Ancient Civilization and
     the technology of the Army--mainly the Steam-powered Cannon. The
     cannon will be used to stop Gaia in his tracks. However, without the
     Sacred Spirit Stone, it is now essential for us to have the help of
     the Kouyokujin more than ever.
     Which now brings me to the question at hand. Will you lend us your
     strength, Lt. Feena...?

         The Choices That We Make


     Justin
     What the heck's that Myuren up to, making Feena a lieutenant and
     all that?

     Rapp
     Say whatever you want to say, but where'd that Feena go anyway?

     Justin
     Well, she said something about going on ahead to the Officer's Tent
     before us.... It looks like Leen wants to talk about this whole
     lieutenant situation too....

     Riethe
     If I remember correctly, Leen said something about meeting her in
     the Tactical Operations Tent.

     Justin
     At any rate, let's go ahead and see what's going on.

     *** The Officers' Tent

     Feena
     I'm sorry for going on ahead without you guys.... I just needed some
     time to myself to think things out. Hey Justin, I'd really like to
     talk to my sister right now.

     Justin
     That's right! I'm pretty sure that Leen will agree that this whole
     lieutenant mess isn't going to work. Anyway, she told us to meet
     her at the Tactical Operations Tent so let's just head over there
     now.

     I normally don't do side conversations but it's quite rare to get
     any laughs at this point in the game. That's why I'll go ahead and
     do the "parrot scenario." (Go ahead and talk to that black bird).

     Rapp
     Hey look, Jasu! It's a parrot bird (actually, the darned thing
     looks more like a crow to me). These birds can remember what people
     say and say it right back.

     Justin
     Eh? Really? Alright! Now then, what can we make it remember...?

     Choices:
     1. Go to hell, Myuren!
     2. Justin, you're the greatest!

     *** If you picked choice 1...

     Justin
     Okay! Here we go.... Go to hell, Myur--....

     Rapp
     So Jasu, just what exactly are you going to have that bird
     remember?

     Bird
     Go to hell, Jasu! Go to hell, Jasu! Go to hell, Jasu!

     Justin
     Ack!

     Rapp
     WA-HA-HA-HA-HA!!! This is your finest work yet! That's what you get
     for trying to act like some punk kid.

     Bird
     Go to hell, Jus' ! Go to hell, Jus' ! Go to hell, Jus' !

     *** If you picked choice 2...

     Bird
     Justin, you're the greatest! Justin, you're the greatest!

     Justin
     Y-Yeah, that's right!

     Rapp
     Hey you... what the heck do you think you're doing? That bird's not
     supposed to be used for fun and games you know.

     Bird
     Justin, you're the greatest! Justin, you're the greatest!

     *** The Tactical Operations Test

     Feena
     Leen....

     Leen
     I've been expecting you, Feena. You men can just go ahead and wait
     outside.

     Soldiers
     Yes, ma'am. Please excuse us.

     Leen
     There's something that I've been meaning to talk to you about,
     Feena.

     Even up to this point, it was never Col. Myuren's intention for
     Shogun Baal to gain possession of the Sacred Spirit Stones. Right
     now, he's been working around the clock with no rest so he can keep
     on overseeing the Army's operations. He's doing this because just
     like you, he doesn't want to see the world destroyed either.

     Now I'm pretty sure that you're aware of this too but with Gaia's
     resurrection, the Sacred Spirit Stones have always been an
     essential component for the protection of our world. However, now
     that the stones have been destroyed, it is of the utmost importance
     that we use the powers that we possess.

     And that's why I'm begging you right now Feena! Please lend us your
     strength! I just want to see the colonel fill of energy once again,
     not like the troubled person that he is right now!

     Justin
     Now hold on just a second Leen. Isn't Myuren planning on just
     abandoning Jilpadon? I would think that saving that city would be
     the main reason why Feena should lend you her strength in the first
     place.

     Feena
     That's right, Leen! I have to go to Jilpadon so I can help Justin
     save the people of the city.

     Leen
     I know that the situation with Jilpadon is no laughing matter, but
     Gaia is expanding at an incredibly alarming rate. According to our
     calculations, Jilpadon is doomed no matter what. It's just a matter
     of time before that city is going to be under extreme danger.... I
     don't think that you should go there.

     Justin
     But that fact right there is the very reason why we have to go! If
     you're intent on saving the world, it doesn't make sense to just
     abandon the people of Jilpadon! Open your eyes, Leen! You're being
     taken in by Myuren's sweet talk....

     Leen
     Don't even dare say anything bad about Sir Myuren!

     He always tells me that it's our responsibility to protect our
     Mother Earth, even at the cost of our own lives. That's why I don't
     even care what happens to me. I'm willing to risk my very life
     for....

     Feena
     But you're wrong, Leen! If you and everybody else sacrifice their
     lives for the sake of the world, who'll be left to enjoy the world
     that you just saved?

     Justin
     Before we even think about saving this world, we need to help the
     people of Jilpadon first. Let's go everyone.

     *** Talk to Leen again...

     Leen
     I used to despise the fact that I was a Kouyokujin. This was a part
     of my existence that I always wanted to erase. God knows how many
     time I just wanted to get rid of my wings. But then... the colonel
     told me how beautiful they were when he first saw them... my two
     shimmering wings which I've always try to keep inside of me.... Those
     words saved me at a time when I was just about ready to throw
     everything away.... This time, I want to save the colonel.

     Feena
     Leen....

                The True Meaning of Power


     Justin
     ... ... ....

     Rapp
     Is there something wrong, Jus'? You've gotten quiet all of a
     sudden.

     Justin
     It's just that it actually IS quiet... almost too quiet! I don't even
     hear the slightest sound!

     Rapp
     H-Hey now! Don't tell me that everyone's already bitten the dust
     over here?!

     Riethe
     I don't think that's the case. I'm sure that it's because everybody
     knows that Gaia will be attacking this place pretty soon.

     Justin
     At any rate, I'm pretty sure that Gido and the others are worried.
     Let's hurry up and see what's going on.... (Earth shakes). O-Oh no!
     Don't tell me we're too late!!!

     At this point, Gaia's tentacles wreak havoc all over the city,
     turning people and objects into stone....

     Justin
     Th-This is Gaia's power? Damn it! It sure didn't take him that long
     now did it?

     Feena
     I can't believe it.... Jilpadon's been destroyed in just an instant!

     Rapp
     H-Hey, Jus'! D-Do you think that the people here have been really
     done for this time?

     Justin
     Th-That can't be!!! Hurry guys, let's start looking for them!!!

     Voice
     Aaaaah! No! Stay back!!!

     Aaaaah! Stay back!!! Somebody help us!!! Please!!!

     Justin
     Th-There's still some people left! Look, over there!

     Feena
     Let's hurry up and go everyone!

     Beat the morphed Gaia monsters....

     Person
     Thank you very much! You just got us through one heck of a tight
     spot right there.

     Justin
     What happened to everybody else? Have they really been killed by
     Gaia...?

     Person
     No, they haven't. Everyone's actually seeking refuge at the
     residence of the Moge people.

     We were actually on our way there when these monsters just started
     attacking us all of a sudden. It's a good thing you came along.

     Justin
     That's great! So there still are people left in here!

     Okay, we're going to look around and make sure that nobody else
     needs help. We'll join the rest of your people once we're done.

     Feena
     You should be getting on your way too.

     Person
     Yeah, you're right. Thanks again, everyone.

     Go further into the town and...

     Voice
     Feena!

     Feena
     Leen! So you've actually come to help us!

     Leen?

     Leen
     ... ... ....

     At 1400 hours today, Tactical Battle Plan 01025 will commence. This
     operation will be known as "The Earth's Great Renewal."

     Our two operatives, 2nd Lieutenant Feena and 1st Lieutenant Leen
     will be assigned in front of Cannon Number 3, where they will
     remain on standby and await further orders once the mission goes
     underway.

     Justin
     Leen!!!

     Feena
     Leen... why can't you understand...?

     Leen
     This is an order, Feena! You are now a subordinate of Col. Myuren....

     Justin
     Stop this nonsense and open your eyes, Leen!

     Voice
     Mommy! Mommy, help meeee!

     Mother
     Help! Somebody, please save my son!

     Justin
     W-What the.... It sounds like somebody's being attacked by monsters
     again!

     Rapp
     Hey, Jus'!

     Justin
     Yeah I got it, Rapp! Sorry Leen, but we'll just have to talk later!

     *** Save the Kid....

     Rapp
     You okay, squirt? Hmm... it doesn't look like you got hurt.

     Kid
     Yeah, thanks! You guys sure are strong!

     Justin
     Heh, just leave everything to us!

     Rapp
     Yeah, we're gonna bust up whatever flunkies Gaia sends over here!!!

     Feena
     Anyway, it's really dangerous to stay out here. You should head on
     to the Moge's place, okay?

     Mother
     I see, the Moge's place you say? Well then, you guys take ca...
     t-take c-caaa...aaaaah!

     Justin
     ...? What's wrong?

     Rapp
     H-Hey, Justin! Right behind you!

     Justin
     W-What the.... Th-This thing's come back again?!

     Rapp
     Shit! This thing's the same as the monster that attacked Kawa
     Village!!!

     Leen
     That's right.... There's no way that you guys can defeat Gaia right
     now.

     Justin
     Leen!

     Feena
     Leen?!

     Leen
     The responsibility to defeat Gaia rests on those who have wings,
     the Kouyokujin.... That would be you and me, Feena.

     *** Leen takes charge....

     Leen
     ... Do you understand now, Feena...? This is the reason why we exist....

     Our purpose in life is to fight Gaia.

     Feena
     ... ... ....

     Leen
     The colonel's waiting, Feena.... Let's go.

     Justin
     Now wait just a second, Leen!

     Didn't you just see what the people of this city are going through?
     What the heck are you thinking?

     I don't exactly know what Myuren's plan is but if he's not willing
     to save Jilpadon, then do you honestly think that he'll be willing
     to save the world?

     I can't think of anyone who wouldn't be saddened by having to
     sacrifice an entire city. He must be lying!!!

     Leen
     You're wrong... you're wrong, Justin! The colonel... the colonel just
     wants to get things back to the way they were before.... Huh...?
     Aaaaaah!

     Feena
     Leen! Hang in there, Leen! Open your eyes! Please!

     Rapp
     Hey guys, I think it's dangerous for us to stay here.

     Justin
     You're right. Okay guys, let's go head on to that refuge they're
     talking about. Give me a hand over here, Rapp.

     Rapp
     Haah? What are you talking about, Jus'? That bitch's responsible
     for thrashing my village!

     Justin
     She was only a victim of circumstances during that time, Rapp!
     Besides, didn't she save our hides back then?

     Feena
     Please, Rapp! I'm begging you!

     Rapp
     ... ... ....

     Aw crap! I guess there's nothing we can do about it. Okay, Jus'.
     Turn over this way.

     *** The Moge Residence

     Justin
     Alright, Feena! There's actually a doctor over here!

     Riethe
     The doctor says that Leen just lost consciousness. She should be
     coming around pretty soon.

     Feena
     I was really worried about my sister for a while there... thanks
     everyone. Thank you too, Rapp. I really appreciate it.

     Rapp
     Urgh! Ah... er... it was nothing... really.

     Justin
     Hmm.... I'm really at a loss here as far as what we're going to do
     with Gaia. I mean, the thing just keeps reviving itself every time
     we destroy it.

     Riethe
     I think Leen's right as far as the Kouyokujin being the only ones
     capable of permanently getting rid of Gaia.

     Feena
     But... I'm not sure if I possess the same strength that my sister
     has.

     Justin
     Damn it! What should we do? What can we.....

     Person 1
     I guess all we can do is just wait for death to come.

     Person 2
     Hmph, once these things start attacking us over here, it'll all be
     over anyway.

     Person 3
     Why? Somebody please tell me why we have to die just like this?

     Person 4
     Oh well, it's okay. Now that the city's been destroyed, there
     wouldn't be any way for us to live decently anyway.

     Justin
     N-Now hold on just a second, everyone!

     How can you just give up like this?

     We've come all the way over here just to protect you guys! I mean,
     we'll definitely help you out, that's for sure! That's why....

     That's why you shouldn't lose hope!

     Feena
     Justin....

     Chit
     Is everyone alright?

     That's good. It looks like everyone over here's okay so far.

     Huh? You're that red-haired adventurer from before! What are you
     doing here now? Did you just stop by on the way to one of your
     adventures?

     Justin
     Not really.... We just hurried over here as soon as we found out that
     Gaia was going to attack Jilpadon.

     Chit
     Eh?! Really?! You mean you're not running away even though
     something this terrible is going on?

     Justin
     Of course! By the way, Chit... I'm really sorry that we weren't able
     to join up with you guys earlier....

     Chit
     Don't worry about it. Luckily, our chief is very trustworthy so he
     didn't bail out on us. He's actually not here 'cause he went to one
     of the other towns to buy us supplies and rations.

     I'm not so sure what to do myself... but I feel stronger already,
     just cause everyone decided to come here.

     Feena
     Well, it's quite a relief to know that Gido's safe.

     Chit
     I don't think this is a time to feel relieved! I mean, it's only a
     matter of time before a lot more enemies start coming here....

     Justin
     There's no point in losing hope! The main reason we've decided to
     come over here is to protect you guys!

     Riethe
     But Justin, if you don't possess the power of the Kouyokujin, then
     Gaia will just keep reviving itself no matter how many times you
     defeat it.

     Feena
     The power of the Kouyokujin.... My sister said that we possess these
     wings so we can fight.... We're supposed to  exist to fight... do we
     really exist only to fight?!

     Justin... do I... ... .... Do I only really exist to fight?! And can I
     actually use the same power that my sister possesses?

     Justin
     Feena....

     Feena
     No... that's not right.... I exist, but not just to fight.... I exist
     because I have to protect.

     I want to protect you, Justin... my sister... and everyone who's here
     right now!!!

     *** Feena spreads her wings of light....

     Justin
     Feena... those wings.... They're wings of light....

     Riethe
     It appears as if a new power has just been born inside of you,
     Feena....

     That, I believe, is the very same power that sealed Gaia's strength
     and imprisoned him.

     In order to free this world from Gaia's evil clutches, you must be
     able to understand and grasp that power at any cost

     Feena
     This power...?

     A foreboding beam of light covers the city....

     Person 1
     Aaaaah! There it is again! That light! It's going to turn us to
     stone!!!!

     Justin
     We'll need to use every bit of our strength to bring Gaia down!
     Let's go guys!

     Chit
     I saw Gaia from one of the vantage points just a while back!!! If
     we don't do anything soon....

     Justin
     Don't worry. We'll defend the entrance to these dwellings from
     Gaia's attacks!

     Rapp
     It's here, Jus'! Get ready!!!

     Feena
     Let's go, Justin.!

     Justin
     Very well then, this'll be just like before. Let's do the dance
     with this thing one more time!

     *** Defeat the Gaia Battler

     Rapp
     Shit! It doesn't look like we can get rid of these guys! They just
     keep coming, and coming! What are we gonna do now, Jus' ?!!!

     Justin
     Well, we can't just withdraw from here! We need to protect the
     people of the city! Damn it! We'll just have to keep cutting them
     down no matter how many times it takes!!!

     Feena
     Justin! Lend me your strength! We must protect these people no
     matter what! There's no way that we can lose to Gaia!!!

     Justin
     Feeeenaaaa!!!!

     Leen
     J-Justin... Feena! Could this power be coming from both of them...?

     Major meltdown follows....

     Rapp
     Hey, Jus' ! Can you hear me?

     Justin
     U...Ungh.... Damn you... Gaia....

     Rapp
     What the-. Hey idiot! Open your eyes!

     Justin
     What happened to Gaia? Hey Feena, are you okay?

     W-what's going on here?

     Riethe
     All of the attacks that Gaia has been carrying out on this city
     have just been stopped.

     A new power has just manifested itself within Feena.

     Leen
     Justin... Feena....

     Justin
     Leen....

     Leen
     I never should have lost hope.... You were able to save a city that
     our military strategies have already abandoned and considered
     doomed.

     I guess I should be grateful.... You have made me realize that I must
     now follow a different path than the one I have previously chosen.

     I'll go report back to the colonel now. I advise you not to leave
     this town until the army makes it move.

     Just leave everything to me....

     Feena
     Leen?!

     Leen
     Farewell, Justin... Feena....

     Rapp
     Anyway guys,  defeating Gaia just like that was mighty impressive,
     he, he!

     Oh, by the way, those Moge guys just set up a tent for us!

     It should be pretty close to the entrance. I heard it's quite
     lavish too, he, he. Anyway, let's go check it out.

     Feena
     I... I am pretty tired, now that you mention it.... Let's go Justin....

     Go to the tent

     Rapp
     So this is that tent those Moge guys aset up for us, huh?

     Well, now that we just beat the crap out of that cursed Gaia, I
     think I'll catch a few winks here myself.

     *** The Garlysle Army Field Camp

     Myuren
     Why did you come back alone, Leen? You're mission was to convince
     Feena to join us so we can carry on with our plan.

     Leen
     ... ... ....

     ... ... ... Col. Myuren, could it be possible that we were mistaken?

     Myuren
     And just what is that supposed to mean?

     Leen
     The power of the Kouyokujin in itself is not enough to defeat Gaia.

     The power that I saw Feena use to protect the people of Jilpadon
     was different from mine.

     That wasn't just the power of the Kouyokujin that I saw.... It was
     something else... something even more powerful.

     Myuren
     ... ... ....

     Leen
     The only true power that can save this world is that same power
     that I saw Justin and Feena use!

     And this is the power that we must search for, Col. Myuren!

     Myuren
     Understood, 1st Lieutenant Leen....

     Leen
     Then that means....

     Myuren
     The plan still remains the same! I expect you to have Feena here
     with us tomorrow no matter what!

     Leen
     Colonel! I'm begging you! Please try to understand what I'm trying
     to say!!!

     Myuren
     The only one who doesn't understand what's going on here is you,
     Leen!!!

     Leen
     A-Ah-!

     Myuren
     We don't have time to follow these tales of yours about your
     dreams! In order to defeat Gaia, it is imperative that we have the
     power of both Kouyokujins behind us!

     At this point, there's just no other way to save the world! Don't
     you understand this?!

     Leen
     B-But....

     Myuren
     We all have, at one point or  another, committed transgressions. I
     don't think there's anyway you can live in this world otherwise.
     But despite the fact that this world is so full of sin.... I still
     want to protect it.

     Leen
     ... ... ....

     Myuren
     This is what I need you to understand, Leen. Even those wings of
     light behind you  are a symbol of these very transgressions as
     well.

     Leen
     My wings... are a symbol... of transgression?

     Myuren
     Please lend us your strength, Leen. We need to have the power of
     the Kouyokujin behind us--yours and Feena's.

     Leen
     I... understand... Col. Myuren. I will act in accordance with the plan
     starting tomorrow.

     Myuren
     That's the reason I've chosen you as my top aide. Very well then,
     I'll leave everything in your hands.

     *** Back at Jilpadon

     Feena
     Within me exists great power....

     But I don't know what to do with it....

     Hey, please tell me, Justin. Why were the Kouyokujin born?

     Is it just like what my sister said? Do we only exist to fight
     Gaia? I mean that's just....

     Justin
     I'm sorry, Feena. I don't know the answer to your question either.

     But don't worry about it too much. With the military and Gaia
     staying put for now, we have a lot of time to think things through.

     Feena
     ... ... ....

     Rapp
     Hey, Jus' ! The army's just been mobilized! It looks like they're
     headed East.

     Justin
     What?!!! But the army's plan isn't supposed to work without Feena!

     Feena
     I-It can't be! Is my sister planning on just going ahead by
     herself?!

     Justin! You've got to help me stop her!

     Justin
     Of course! Now let me see... hmm... East you say, right? That's
     basically right around the Ruzette area... they must be headed to
     Military Fortress J.  Let's get going guys!

     *** Ruzette Mountain

     Riethe
     What's this...? It looks like the monsters here have been influenced
     by Gaia!

     Justin
     The monsters are under Gaia's influence? What's that supposed to
     mean?

     Riethe
     Gaia's energy is affecting the monsters in the surrounding areas.
     They're basically turning into Gaia monsters.

     Rapp
     It looks like they've gotten stronger too.

     Riethe
     Gaia's going to undergo his own transformation pretty soon. We must
     stop him before this happens.

     The second half of Ruzette Mountain; ground starts shaking....

     Riethe
     What the.... Justin! This doesn't look good! Gaia's undergoing his
     transformation!

     Justin
     What?!!!

     *** Military Fortress J

     Soldier
     Gaia has just started moving again! It looks like he's changing
     into his second form!

     Myuren
     Alright! Everyone, let's set the plan into action.

     Soldier
     Colonel! It's Lt. Leen!!!

     Myuren
     What's wrong?!!!

     Soldier
     L-Lt. Leen.... Lt. Leen just headed for the Number 3 Cannon's tower....

     Myuren
     What?!!! I haven't given the order to move out yet !!! What could
     she be thinking ?!!! Leen!!!

     Soldier
     We have an incoming report! It looks like Gaia's moving toward a
     nearby location!

     ... Colonel! Col. Myuren! Gaia's main body is heading towards
     Military Fortress J!!!

     Myuren
     Huh?! I can't believe this is happening at a time like this !!!
     Leen !!! Just what are you up to?!!!

              The Ultimate Sacrifice



      *** Inside the main command center at Military Fortress J....

      MYUREN
      Is there still no response? Are you meaning to tell me that Leen
      hasn't established communications with us yet? At this rate we
      won't be able to make our move!!!

      JUSTIN
      Hey, Myuren!!! What's the meaning of this?! Where the heck is Leen
      at?!

      MYUREN
      Justin?! What's Feena doing here?! Leen's all by herself over at....
      O-Oh no! This can't be...!

      LEEN
      This is Lt. Leen, reporting in.... As of this moment, I have seized
      control of all the cannons surrounding Military Fortress J.

      I repeat, I have now seized control of all the cannons surrounding
      Military Fortress J.

      MYUREN
      Where are you, Leen?! Come back! Come back over here, Leeeen!!!

      LEEN
      So you're there... Feena. And Justin too.... I can feel your presence.

      I'm here because I would like to help all of you.... Once again, it
      looks like we've unknowingly set yet another disaster in motion.

      And just like before, everything rests on the power of the
      Kouyokjin who, according to legend, appear to be destined to meet a
      sorrowful fate.

      That's why I've decided to be here... so I can stop this operation
      that we've decided to follow.

      I do not possess the power that can save all of us. The true power
      that can save this world lies within Feena.... And you too, Justin.

      These next lines have no text with them so I'm not sure how
      accurate I'm going to be...

      However, at this point, the power you possess still hasn't reached
      its full strength so it won't be strong enough....
      That's why I'm going to buy you some time. This is the only chance
      that we'll ever get to save this world. The existence of human
      beings may be marred by mistakes and wrongdoings.... And these are
      the very same wrongdoings that spawned Gaia....

      Alright! The text is back!

      You said it yourself, Col. Myuren. These wings are also a symbol of
      human transgression and wrongdoing.

      Perhaps you can make light of the crimes of humanity that have been
      persecuting you.

      But even though I'm tainted by these wings of mine, I'm still
      capable of doing the right thing.

      MYUREN
      What are you talking about, Leen?! Stop this nonsense! I'm to blame
      for all of this!

      I realized that your wings were giving you so much grief so I
      wanted to free you from all of that sorrow. Believe me, that was
      all that I wanted for you.

      LEEN
      To the people of the world... listen to me. Please do not repeat the
      same mistakes that have been done in the past!

      For the sake of our world, you must find an alternative path to
      that which we have always chosen! The person capable of finding
      this new path... is you, Justin. I'm confident that you will be able
      to trace the path that will save our world.

      It is imperative that you find the answer to this alternative path
      so our world won't be destined to a sorrowful fate!!!

      JUSTIN
      Please wait, Leen! Tell me! What should I do?!!!

      LEEN
      Col. Myuren... please listen to my final words.... I just want you to
      know... that I love you more than anyone else.... I truly... and deeply
      do....

      MYUREN
      Leeeeeeeeeeen!!!!

      At this point, you'll regain control of Justin. Go ahead and talk
      to Myuren and your party members....

      JUSTIN
      Hey, Myuren! Where's Leen at right now? We must go over there no
      matter what!

      MYUREN
      ... ... .....

      JUSTIN
      Myuren!!!

      MYUREN
      You'll need to exit this room and find the entrance to the Steam
      Cannon Engine Room. Go in there and find the exit that leads to one
      of the steam cannons which we've locked on to fire at Gaia. That's
      where you'll find Leen....

      JUSTIN
      You should come with me too, Myuren! You're the only one who can
      stop her!!!

      MYUREN
      I can't leave here! I have a duty to attend to! If I leave now,
      nobody's going to oversee the army's operations!

      JUSTIN
      You stubborn fool! I can't believe you're still spouting that
      garbage! Don't you understand how Leen feels...?

      MYUREN
      Shut up!!! You have no right to be pointing a finger at me!!! Now
      then, there's a passage way that you can reach from the comand
      center. That passageway has only one door so you won't miss it!
      Leen should be on the other side. If you want to go then you can go
      on ahead by yourself....

      FEENA
      I can't believe it... Leen....

      JUSTIN
      Feena! Hey, Feena! Get a hold of yourself!

      FEENA
      Leen's... Leen's going to....

      My sister's a Kouyokujin so... the world's... why? Why my sister?

      RIETHE
      The Kouyokujin's power, whether it be of one or two doesn't make a
      difference.... I wonder what Leen meant as far as an alternative
      path.... What could she have seen?

      Once again, the power of stopping Gaia rests on the Kouyokujin.... It
      doesn't look like anyone can run away from the sorrowful destiny
      that fate has ordained.

      RAPP
      Did you see that woman's eyes, Justin? Those eyes... those are the
      eyes of someone who knows she's going to die! Hurry, Justin! You
      have to stop her!

      *** Once you get to the control room, the guard will tell you to go
      straight through the room and exit at the other side to find her....

      JUSTIN
      Leen! Stop it!!!!!!!!!!!

                Requiem


      RAPP
      Boy, that Feena's sure been sulking in that tent since yesterday.
      Well, I guess it can't be helped--her having lost a loved one and
      all. I guess the best thing we can do for her now is just give her
      some space. Just make sure that you go and cheer her up later on
      okay? I don't think Riethe and I can do much as far as that's
      concerned.

      RIETHE
      The radiance of one of the Kouyokujin has just been lost to us
      forever. This is quite unfortunate, but it doesn't change the
      situation that we are currently facing...  even though the will to
      face the future for some of us may have.... Now then... the wheels of
      fate rests on both you and Feena, Justin. I believe that the
      strength of your convictions will decide whether we change the
      future that has been ordained for us or not. At this moment, the
      strength of Feena's will is very weak. It is up to you to give her
      convictions strength yet once again.

      MYUREN
      Feena must be in here... I would like to talk to her.

      JUSTIN
      You jackass!!! Didn't I just tell you that Feena doesn't want to
      see anyone right now?! This is all your fault!

      MYUREN
      We don't have much time left. Move out of the way, Justin.

      JUSTIN
      You must be crazy if you think I'm going to move out of here!
      Obviously, it's not enough for you to have gotten Leen killed! Now
      you want to get Feena killed too! You should at least try to
      understand Feena's feelings and....

      MYUREN
      Shut your all-knowing mouth, Justin!!! Do you really think you
      understand the purpose behind Leen and Feena's existence?!!! Do you
      truly understand what those wings were meant to be for?!!! You
      should be ashamed of putting your petty thoughts ahead of the
      continued existence of humanity.

      *** Inside the tent

      MYUREN
      Please think it over really well. This is our final chance to stop
      Gaia, Feena.

      FEENA
      ... ... ....

      MYUREN
      With the spirit stones gone, we need your strength more than ever.
      You're the only Kouyokujin left in this world....

      FEENA
      And in the end... I'll die right? Just like the legend says.... I saw
      it in those murals.

      MYUREN
      ... That is a possibility. I can't make any guarantees concerning
      your survival.

      JUSTIN
      Cut it out, MYUREN! Are you spewing the same garbage again?! Don't
      involve Feena in your schemes any further!

      MYUREN
      We will carry out the plan first thing tomorrow morning. You have
      until then to decide. I won't force you to make your decision.

      JUSTIN
      Now just hold on a second, MYUREN! Haven't you forgotten Leen's
      final words?! We need to find a new way to deal with this problem!

      MYUREN
      Shut up, Justin! And just where do you expect to find this new path
      that she was talking about?! Do you even know where to start
      looking?!

      JUSTIN
      Well, I uh....

      MYUREN
      I will keep on fighting no matter what! Besides fighting, I don't
      see any other path to take! If you happen to have any solutions in
      mind other than this, then answer me now, Justin!

      JUSTIN
      ... ... ....

      MYUREN
      What? It looks like you can't give us an answer can you? Do you
      intend to have Leen's sacrifice just be in vain?!

      FEENA
      Stop it!!! Leen... it's truly sad how we've reverted to our petty
      bickering yet once again.... Please come back to us....

      MYUREN
      Even now, there is simply no way for us to bring Leen back. Please
      don't forget this.... (He leaves)

      FEENA
      Justin.... Does the new path that my sister talked about really
      exist?

      JUSTIN
      Of course! And I'm definitely gonna find it too!

      FEENA
      Now I see! MYUREN was right after all! Why couldn't you say
      anything a while ago?! ... ... .... I'm sorry, Justin... I just don't know
      what to do anymore....

      JUSTIN
      There's no point in beating yourself to the ground. We... still
      have time, you know.

      FEENA
      It's really strange.... For some reason, I can't stop my legs from
      shaking.... Justin, I'm scared.... I don't want to die....

      *** Talk to Feena again and she'll go on feeling sorry for herself for
      not being capable of doing anything. She'll apologize to her sister
      for her ineptitude and mutter that she doesn't want to die once
      again. She'll eventually just keep to herself and you can go ahead
      and leave the tent.

      RAPP
      Uh... well you know, Feena's probably not the only one who's saying
      that kind of stuff. At any rate, just cheer up, Jasu!

      RIETHE
      This is the first time I've ever seen Feena speak like that....

      JUSTIN
      Feena.... Please tell me, Leen. What should I do?

      CHIT
      Ah! Mister red-haired adventurer!

      JUSTIN
      Chit!

      CHIT
      What's wrong? You don't look well. That gloomy look you have
      doesn't really slide with young girls, you know.

      JUSTIN
      Ha, ha, ha.... Even though the city's gone through all of this, it
      doesn't look like the Moge people have been discouraged at all,
      huh? I wonder what Guido would say if he was here.... Hey that's
      right! Did Guido ever come back from that trip of his? Maybe he can
      give me some advice about what I should do....

      CHIT
      Actually, our chief has just returned. It looks like he wants to
      talk to you guys too.

      JUSTIN
      Alright! Let's go meet Guido then. That guy knows everything. He
      should be able to tell us what we should do, I just know it....

      *** Go to Guido's quarters

      GUIDO
      I've heard of what happened. Looks like you've come to the right
      place, Justin.

      JUSTIN
      Please tell me what to do Guido! The way things are going right
      now, it looks like Feena may have to sacrifice her own life to save
      the world. ... We have to find a way to help her! Leen mentioned
      something about another path but I just can't figure the answer
      out. I don't think my strength alone is enough to get the job done.

      GUIDO
      As long as Gaia is alive, every single one of us is in danger. Now
      then, surely you're not planning on undertaking this venture alone,
      are you?! It is imperative that you get some assistance during
      times like this.

      JUSTIN
      Get some assistance...?

      GUIDO
      You mean nobody has told you about this? A person strength becomes
      much greater when he fights for the sake of others compared to when
      he fights for his sake alone. If you fight for the sake of the
      person you hold dearest in your heart, then your greatest power
      will reveal itself.

      JUSTIN
      The person that I hold dearest in my heart...? I see... that would be
      Feena....

      GUIDO
      Bingo! And once you understand this concept, then there isn't
      anything in this world that you can't do. I personally think that
      you and Feena can do just about anything when you join your hearts
      together. Why, weren't both of you responsible for saving
      Jilpadoon?

      JUSTIN
      That's right... I didn't do all that by myself... Feena and I did it
      together. Why didn't I see that before? Feena and I did save the
      city together. Thanks, Guido! I owe you one! Let me try talking to
      her just one more time!

      *** Back at the tent...

      JUSTIN
      What the... Feena's....

      RAPP
      Hey, Justin! It looks like she just beat it!

      JUSTIN
      Hey... that's the... that's the hero's bracelet that we got from
      Daito.... Oh no, it can't be.... Hey Rapp! She's at the Army Camp!

     Justin
     What the... where's Feena...?

     Rapp
     Hey, Jus'! It doesn't look like she's here!

     Justin
     Huh, what's that...? This is the Hero's Bracelet that we got as a
     keepsake from Daito Village. Oh no, it can't be.... She's at the Army
     Camp, Rapp!

     *** Exit the city and go to the Army Camp's temporary docking area....

     Justin
     Hey, Feena! Wait up!

     You don't have to go, Feena! I'm going to stop Gaia!

     Myuren
     I understand how you feel, Justin. But your strength alone isn't
     enough to stop Gaia.

     Feena
     Thanks, Justin... for everything. You handed Baal the spirit stone in
     order to protect me.... This wonderful gesture of yours truly makes me
     happy. However, because of this... Gaia has been resurrected and
     several people have already died... including my sister. Now it's my
     turn to protect everyone from Gaia's clutches... the people... this
     world... and you too....

     Justin
     Please wait, Feena! I'm the one who gave Baal the spirit stone so this
     is all my fault, not yours! That's why I ....

     Justin
     Aaaah!

     Feena
     This is the power that I possess.... Besides myself, there are no
     other Kouyokujin left.... The way things are going right now, Gaia
     will soon destroy everything. And there really isn't anybody else in
     this world who can stop him.... Defeating Gaia... is the Kouyokujin's
     responsibility... and as the last remaining survivor... it is my
     responsibility too. That's why I... I.... Ju... Justin! Farewell....
     Please don't forget me, okay?

     *** Feena and Myuren board the military's airship leaving Justin in the
     dust

     Justin
     Rapp, Riethe... let's go....

     Rapp
     Hah? What do you mean "let's go?" Go where? We're gonna go where
     Feena's headed to, right? Tell me that's where you want to go?!

     Justin
     ... ... .....

     Rapp
     Hey! Say something! Where are we gonna go?!

     Justin
     I... I can't protect Feena.... I couldn't even stop her.... I just
     don't have the strength to....

     Rapp
     ... ... .... (in shock) You stupid jackass!!! Surely, you must be
     kidding! Do you even hear what you're saying?! Come on, Jus'! We need
     to go after Feena!!!

     ... ... ... Shit! What a sissy.... I guess I misjudged you, oh great
     "Justin". Hmph, whatever... I don't care anymore. You...y-you... you
     can go rot in hell for all I care!!! (Leaves)

     Riethe
     Is that true, Justin? Do you really intend to just stay here? Didn't
     you tell me that my stone block was going to be red and that I should
     start my future anew? (I guess I picked red for happiness back in
     Alent)

     Justin
     ... ... ....

     Riethe
     I see.... Then that means that I have no further business here. I
     shall be heading back to Alent. A word of advice, Justin. You can have
     eternity itself by your side. But if you're going to sulk around and
     act like a child, then all that time is of no worth.

     *** Deserted by his peers, Justin heads back to the camp's main grounds
     where he witnesses the remaining military personnel leaving in
     droves....

     Saki
     Hey there, Justin! It looks like you've got nothing left to do, huh?
     Well, from the looks of Sir Myuren's final orders, it doesn't look
     like we're gonna be doing much either.

     Mio
     According to Sir Myuren's orders, all military personnel not involved
     in the final strike can go back to their respective homes.

     Saki
     We wanted to be part of the military's final mission but Sir Myuren
     said that we were going to be in charge of the departing troops.

     Mio
     We've certainly gone through a lot together, haven't we? With the
     dissolution of the army, we'll probably never see each other again.

     Nana
     Justin, you should just run away while you're still alive. Sacrifices
     have been made to save everyone's lives, including yours.... As such,
     you should treasure and take good care of it.

     Saki
     Alright, let's get going people! Time to head on back to Mecina!!!

     Justin
     Everyone's... gone.... I... where should I go...?

     Exit the camp and head on to Savanna Plains. Looking very kanashii,
     Justin trips and falls flat on his face in the mud.

     Justin
     Why... why did I ever want to become an adventurer? I went through all
     kinds of crap just to make it here!

     *** The myna bird appears

     Justin
     So you're alone too, huh? Well, that makes two of us, he, he, he.

     Myna bird
     Gaia! It's Gaia! Run away!!! There is nothing we can do!!! Run as far
     away as you can!!! SQUAWK! SQUAWK!

     Justin
     There's nothing... we can do, huh? That's right....

     *** The myna bird flies away.

     Justin
     Why did I ever think that I could protect this world...? A person can
     start a new future with his or her own strength and convictions.... A
     person can make a difference and change the times.... Why did I ever
     believe in those ideals? And just how the heck can I start a new
     future by myself... I can't do anything alone!!!

     Why did I even go through all that trouble of crossing the world's
     end.... And what was the point of even going to Alent...? I couldn't
     even protect the person... the person that I love most with my own
     strength!!!

     Leen... I'm sorry.... I wasn't able to find the new path that you
     mentioned....

     *** Tiny orbs of light start flying over Justin

     Justin
     Spirits... calling...? Are they calling me...? They're headed toward
     Jilpadon.... That's right... Gido.... He should be able to tell me
     what I should do....

                        Reunion


     Jilpadon's town square

     Man
     The money that you and the Moge people gave us has really helped us
     out a lot Guido... I don't know what to say.... We owe the Moge a lot,
     not just financially... It's quite embarrassing. It's a good thing
     that you and the other Moge have thought about this. We're truly
     grateful.

     Gido
     Well, we did save the money just for a time like this one. Now then,
     just hang in there okay? We all have to do our best to pull through.

     Man
     Yeah!

     Justin
     Ha, ha, ha.... Hey there Gido... That's right... you guys really think
     far ahead don't you? That's really impressive.... I mean, it's not
     like me at all.... I can never seem to think ahead--or simply think
     for that matter.... I really envy you... you're so... capable. I, on
     the other hand, can't seem to do anything right.... By the way, is it
     okay if I help you out over here, huh, Gido?

     Gido
     Come now, cut that out, Justin. This kind of job doesn't suit you.

     Justin
     Ha, ha, ha... well, I was thinking about helping you like, throw stuff
     away or something.

     Gido
     Throw stuff away...? What do you mean? Don't you know that Moge's
     don't ever throw anything away? Even objects that you would normally
     think have no value, possess an inert spiritual qualtiy within them
     that humans can find use for. That's why we Moges make use of
     everything.

     Justin
     Please, Gido... let me help you out. Even just a little bit.

     Gido
     Justin... what have I told you time and time again? Every person has a
     purpose to fulfill in his or her own way.

     Justin
     But I can't do anything on my own! What the heck can I do?!

     Gido
     You're the only one who seems to think so. Look!

     Justin
     Spirits.. It's the spirits! Why? Why are they here?

     Gido
     During this world's more enlightened times, the spirits have always
     treated human beings as if they were their own children. That was,
     until Gaia influenced humans and ruined their hearts. A lot of time
     has passed since those dark times, and there hasn't been a person who
     has thought of a way to reunite the humans' lost and fragmented
     hearts.

     But you, Justin... you're different! I believe that you are capable of
     doing this!

     Justin
     Me?! What the heck are you talking about?! I don't think that it's me
     at all! Feena was the one who saved Jilpadon! Leen was the one who
     recently stopped Gaia! And Myuren, on the other hand, is fighting to
     the very end! I haven't done anything! I'm not the person you're
     looking for... There's nothing I can do....

     Gido
     Justin... I know you've always wanted to be the hero, but what can you
     do by yourself?

     Justin
     Nothing! I can't do anything! But... that's because I'm alone...
     that's why....

     Gido
     You're alone? You mean you haven't even sensed anything yet?

     Justin
     Eh? Sue?! What are you doing here? And everyone else is here too....

     Sue
     We've come!

     Justin
     W-why...?

     Milda
     Justin... you're a man aren't you? Don't you know that it's a woman's
     role to wait for her knight in shining armor to rescue her? I'm
     talking about Feena, of course.

     Sue
     That's right! Geez, this isn't like you at all! Besides, didn't you
     promise that you and Feena are always gonna go adventuring together?!

     Riethe
     Nevertheless, Feena is a Koyokujin. There's no way back from the path
     that her existence leads her to. That's why you need to make a new one
     using the strength you have within. Only you can open the doors that
     normally won't open.

     Rapp
     That's right, Justin. There is still is something that you can do.
     Besides, it really doesn't suit me when I try to use my head. I'm the
     kind of guy who's only good at yapping.

     Riethe
     That is correct!

     Rapp
     Yep, I really hate having to use my head that's for sure, he, he!

     Justin
     Rapp... Riethe....

     Gadwin
     They're right.... You possess great strength as a fighter and as a
     man, Justin. And you also have great friends.

     Justin
     Guys... you're....

     Gido
     See? Take a good look! Do you still think you're alone? What you see
     before you... the source of your strength! And that's not limited to
     the people that are currently present here. You've also made ties that
     bind you to the others that you've met along the way. These ties
     you've made are your true strength. That's why you have to use your
     strength in order to save the world. This is your calling.

     Sue
     Justin, how long do you plan on taking a break? Aren't you going to
     help Feena?

     Rapp
     Yeah, and don't forget those people in the village of stone either!

     Riethe
     And I can finally break the chains that bind my fortune. I'll finally
     be able to make an inscription on my stone block!

     Justin
     That's right.... I've only just gained the strength that I can truly
     use. Everyone... I'm pretty sure that if we put our strength together,
     then everything will be fine. This is going to be a battle, after all!
     Let's go guys! It looks like I'm not alone anymore! Watch me, spirits!
     I'm going for it!

     *** Portal appears

     Justin
     Huh? What's that?

     Riethe
     That's... ... .... Justin, that's the Spirit Gate! This gate is
     similar to the one that the True Existence once opened within the
     former Enjule Civilization. The True Existence is thought to have been
     alive since the dawning of this world. This act proves that the True
     Existence still lives.

     At this very moment, the spirits have acknowledged you and they want
     you to enter the Holy Land. From the looks of it, they want to start a
     whole new world.... (I've heard that somewhere before...)

     Justin
     The spirits... have acknowledged me...?

     Riethe
     That is correct, they have definitely acknowledged you. And what's
     more, the Holy Land is where new spirit stones come from. Let's enter
     the Holy Land, Justin. Just as they have acknowledged you, you must
     likewise, acknowledge the spirits' gesture. I'm sure that once you do,
     then they will lend you their power.

     Justin
     Ah.....! I see!  Alright! Let's head on to the Holy Land!

     *** Talk to your peers

     Sue
     Honestly, to think of all the trouble I went through just to come
     here, me being a sophisticated lady and all. You really are hopeless,
     Justin. You know what though? It's only been some time since I last
     saw you and you already look different!

     Justin
     You think so? I haven't even noticed anything.

     Sue
     Yup! You've definitely changed alright! Let me see... hmm... is it
     your... face? You know what? I can't figure it out either! I guess
     you're just fine even without me after all! Well now, we don't have
     time to dilly-dally around. You need to go rescue Feena!

     Gadwin
     I wasn't worried one bit about how you were going to turn out ever
     since our last meeting. You've already grown into real man so I know
     that you were going to be just fine . Now I'm curious to see which of
     us is truly stronger. You must engage me in a duel sometime. But
     before we do that, you have to take care of some unfinished business
     first.

     Justin
     Gadwin....

     Gadwin
     Go rescue Feena.... I am sure that you'll return to us alive. Then we
     can have the pleasure of clashing swords.

     Milda
     Honestly, men can be such a pain sometimes. Even Darin' gets depressed
     so easily. Then again, that's what makes them so cute! But Justin, you
     have to hang in there and get yourself together, okay? Feena's waiting
     right? That kid's gonna be depressed if she hears you saying stuff
     like that. Just go and embrace your destiny okay? You're a man now, so
     I'm sure you'll be fine.

     Gido
     You're not gonna spew out any of that rubbish about assisting me
     again, are you? You do understand the part you play in life now,
     right? So just leave everything here to us, okay? That's the part that
     I'M going to play out. Just remember... if you blow it, then all our
     efforts will be for naught.... However, I'm sure that you'll do just
     fine. I have the utmost faith in you Justin!

                 Redemption


     Riethe
     From this point on you must choose which path to take.  Only you,
     Justin, can proceed.  Let the spirits know what your thoughts hold.
     You must convey to them that they need to give this world and its
     people one more chance....

     Justin
     I have come all this way!  I've come all this way... so you may place
     the final answer that I seek within my hands.  You are spirits... and
     we are human....  There are things that we have lost... and things we
     have forgotten.  Now, I am here because we must all start anew. That
     is why I have come all this way.

     We are human!  Up to this point, we have compiled many mistakes and
     grievances.  Leen... who possesses powers similar to those of the
     Koyokujin... has, unfortunately, passed away.  And at this very
     moment, Feena is reliving the Koyokujin's sorrowful plight.  We humans
     don't possess this power, is that not right...?  How then, can we
     change anything?

     We believe!  We believe that we can change fate!  Many people have
     already been sacrificed....  This time, I don't want to see any more
     hurt and grieving people!  The chains of sorrow must be broken!  I
     want to set things straight... for the sake of all the people... for
     the sake of the spirits... and for the sake of our living planet! It
     is for this very purpose... that you must lend me your strength!

     *** The spirits give Justin their response....

     Justin
     This isn't going to do!  What I need right now is strength that I can
     use to fight!  Strength that can cut a new future for us!

     *** The spirit orb/stone is transformed into the spirit sword....

     Rapp
     You did it, Justin!  Man, you're really awesome!

     Riethe
     Finally, a legend from the past shows itself yet once again....  You
     now hold it in your hands, Justin. The very power that the Koyokujin
     possessed....  The power that will save this world and its people.

     Justin
     I finally understand everything clearly....  The spirits have extended
     their hand to us....  Together... we will start a new future.  I
     believe that this is what the spirits were trying to convey. We must
     let those two... Feena and Myuren... know this as well.

            Metamorphosis



     Justin
     Wh-what's going on?!

     Riethe
     Oh no... it looks like Gaia is undergoing his final transformation!

     Gaia transforms...

     Riethe
     We have no time to lose! If Gaia manages to spread its spawn
     throughout the planet, our world will be facing some very grave and
     serious problems!

     Justin
     Damn it! We can't let that happen! Let's go, Rapp, Riethe! We'll need
     to go through Military Fortress J to reach Gaia!

     *** Inside the fortress

     Riethe
     Justin, Rapp... can you feel it? Gaia has been tearing through this
     very structure as it grows. We should be able to find a passageway
     connecting to his body from within this place.

     *** Find a huge hole in the wall....

     Justin
     In here...?

     Riethe
     It does look like it leads to Gaia, doesn't it?

     Rapp
     Hey, Justin! What are you waiting for? We don't have time to
     dilly-dally around! Let's go!

     Justin
     Hey, that's....

     Myuren
     Hmph, it's not over yet! I won't go down at a place like this!

     Feena
     Please... give me strength....

     Justin
     Hold on, Feena! I'm coming!

     Feena
     J-Justin!

     *** Justin leaps down to the platform and incenerates the Gaia Battlers'
     collective butts with a Spirit Sword assisted Ryujinken

     Justin
     We've come to help you... Feena, Myuren.... Leen's words have come
     back to me. I finally understand what she meant. If we all fight with
     one heart, then the spirits will give us their blessing. When the
     thoughts of humans and the spirits are as one, all kinds of miracles
     will be revealed!!! Once we defeat Gaia, then we can truly start a new
     future for ourselves.

     Feena
     J-Justin... that sword...? I can feel the presence of the spirits
     within it....

     Justin
     This sword was given to us by the spirits themselves. It's the sword
     that will cut a new future for all of us!

     Feena
     J-Justin.... Finally... the spirits have finally acknowledged us!!!
     Justin!

     Myuren
     I refuse to believe this nonsense! The spirits have never forgiven the
     sins and transgressions of humankind! Why would they forgive us
     foolish mortals now?

     Justin
     Myuren.... The spirits never stayed away from us humans.... They have
     always been extending their hand out to us. In truth, it was humans
     who forsook the spirits and stayed away from them! Humans, Myuren!
     Humans in the very same mold as you!

     Myuren
     W-What?! H-How dare you say that?! You can flap those lips of yours
     all you want, Justin, but it won't change anything! If you want me to
     believe your words as truth, then you'll have to prove it to me! Prove
     it to me with your actions and that sword you hold!

     Justin
     I understand, Myuren! Let's get it on!

     *** Battle between Justin and Myuren. Defeat Myuren and...

     Myuren
     Ungh! Justin... th-this power?! Have the spirits truly acknowledged
     you? Have they really acknowledged mankind yet once again...?! I
     should have had more faith in Leen's words.... I was the one who
     didn't understand after all....How could I have been so foolish? I
     carelessly caused her death... and now my actions may have just doomed
     all of us....

     Feena
     You're wrong, Myuren! We still have time! All of us made our share of
     mistakes, not just you! That's why Leen went out of her way to buy us
     some more time.

     Justin
     Come with us, Myuren. Let us fight... together. If we all combine our
     strength, then Gaia doesn't stand a chance.

     Myuren
     Should I... fight one more time? Will the spirits offer me their
     divine protection as well?

     Feena
     It'll be alright, Myuren! If I... Justin... you... Leen... and
     everybody else in the world join hands, then the spirits will surely
     give us their blessing.

     Myuren
     ... I have already exhausted all my strength in this place....I have
     followed the "path" as far as I can go.... However, I see that the
     path has now changed! For the sake of our Mother Earth... and for all
     the people in this world... we must forge ourselves a new future! Let
     us go together, Justin! (Man, I just watched that Slayers episode
     where Gourry dresses as a girl and battles that gay Sea Monster again
     just a couple of hours ago. The seriousness of this part is now
     escaping me) This time, I'll use my strength for the good of everyone
     else.

     Feena
     Thank you, Myuren....

     *** Later on outside... I am treated yet once again to one of these
     automatic "unstoppable text" scenarios... crap....

     Nana
     Sir Myuuuuren~!

     Myuren
     What the-? That's Lt. Nana! What in blazes could she be doing here? I
     specifically ordered the rest of the army to disperse!

     Saki
     Hold on, Nana! What're you doing hogging all the glory?!

     Mio
     That's right! The plan was for all three of us to stay together!

     as molasses!

     Gadwin
     It looks like I just found a new place to train. I shall torch this
     Gaia fiend to the ground!

     Milda
     Justin, we've decided to join forces with the soldiers! We'll all be
     fighting together!

     Gido
     Thanks to you, the soldiers and the people are now fighting as one! We
     do have one common enemy after all.

     Saki, Nana, Mio
     All units are now in position!

     All Kite jets have been refueled and ready to go!

     Refugees have been sent to safe havens!

     All preparations are now complete. The military's final mission is now
     underway! Please assume command, Sir Myuren!

     Myuren
     Ha, ha.... These women are hopeless. It looks like the military still
     need my help. I will have to withdraw from this particular mission.
     I'll take care of things here outside. Justin, Feena... please focus
     on the destruction of the Spirit Stone.

     Justin
     Understood, Myuren.

     Myuren
     Please return to us alive, Justin, Feena....

     Feena
     You too, Myuren.

     Myuren
     Well then, I leave everything to you, Justin.

     Man, they didn't all have to come here like this.... Oh well, we still
     have some unfinished business to take care of here!

             Weaving the wheel of fate...



     Baal
     The humans of ancient times followed foolish dreams. It appears as if
     their descendants still persist on following in their footsteps. Now
     that I have undergone my ultimate evolution, there is no way that you
     will be able to defeat me !

     AFTER THE BATTLE

     Baal
     I have undergone my ultimate evolution. I have already surpassed human
     existence ! There should be no way for me to be defeated by such lowly
     creatures !

     *** He runs Away

     [GAIA CORE AREA]

     GAIA CORE
     We know you. We know what you love and what you hate.

     Just like us you despise many things and you live to take what you
     want by force.
     You want to rob the whole world and its spoils and desire nothing else
     but that.

     Justin
     Humans don't live for that purpose ! We've come here so we can all
     start a new life !

     Riethe
     Please go, Justin, Feena... From here on, only you two can accomplish
     this task

     Rapp
     We'll wait for you outside. Come once you're done.

     Riethe
     I can feel the wavelength of the Spirit stone in this direction... It
     must be Gaia's core... Justin, Feena, now, you are on the verge of the
     wheel of another fate
     Change it with thy hands.

     Take all of the world's fate oustide the wheel

     Justin
     Okay, understood... But Gaia, the Spirit stone, the Kouyokujin,
     they'll all be ruined.

     Rapp
     Yeah, I don't like it, but big times are always for Justin !
     Even if Gaia is destroyed, this place won't disappear, right ?
     We'll be waiting safely down here, won't we Riethe ?

     Riethe
     Right, let's do so.
     Only a hero and a Kouyokujin can change the last fate.

     Feena
     Let's go Justin Together, let's have everyone's hopes

     Justin
     Yes let's gooo !

     *** Talk to Rapp

     I wanted to stay with you till the end... But, I'll pass the big times
     because you're Mr Hero !
     Heyhey, don't make such a weird face, will ya !
     Take it easy, I was just kidding, you know !

     This way, now, I'll be proud to think I was able to fight by your side!
     Hero or not, I know I fought by the side of a great guy called Justin !!

     *** Talk to Rapp again :

     Heyhey, make it end now !
     It's my buddy, the hero Justin !

     *** Talk to Riethe

     When I inherited the name "Riethe", I knew I was inheriting a fate of
     waiting
     And eternity was such a long time....

     Protecting Alent's memories...
     Watching after the large wheel called "fate"
     I thought this was my duty
     However, I suppose this was wrong...

     From the wheel of a beautiful fate a world has emerged, a freed world
     that will go with its own will
     Because you let me see this, Justin, thank you. I am happy.
     I'm not remembering the things the former Riethe's desired I now have
     the feeling of having seen it with my own eyes

     *** Talk to Riethe again :

     So, Justin, show us, please, the door to a new world opening with a
     sound, at this moment...

     *** Enter the core

     Feena
     The Spirits stone... Gives power to the people, guides when
     catastrophes strikes, the chains of a sad myth...

     Justin
     If you think about it, the Spirits stone has taught us various
     things... Its light has always brightened the right way. Yet the
     light's duty is over. From now on our own light shall brighten the way
     to the future !

     Feena
     Well Justin... The long sad destiny is now over... With your sword,
     you'll...

     Justin
     Yeah... Spirits ! Let's start a new era ! From now on protect our
     physical shapes !

     Let's gooooo !! All of us ! Everyone... Together !

     Uooooooooooooryaaaaaaaaaaaa !

     *** Justin breaks the Spirit stone, thus detsroying Gaia...
     Later on... Feena and Justin awake on a meadow...

     Feena
     You've come to yourself...

     Justin
     Feena... Is it safe now... How about... the others ?

     Feena
     Look over there Justin

     Justin
     That.. that's... Gaia !?

     Feena
     Yes... everything has been reborn It's not just Gaia, it's this whole
     world Can you feel it Justin ? The spirits' power has spread all over
     the world

     *** Back to Jilpadon - the petrified people are coming back to life

     Myuren
     Can you see it, Leen ? Every wickedness of this world has disappeared
     ...Even Gaia...

     The chains of the sad destiny are broken
     A new human history has started. It's the history you had wished for.
     We may be walking on a wrong path, but... We'll be all right. Helping
     each other, we shall open our way...
     It seems that my duty is now over...

     Myuren
     The Spirits ? They're calling me ?

     Myuren
     It can't be !? LEEN !!

     Leen
     Huh.. uh...

     Myuren
     Leen !!!

     Leen
     Myuren-sama !

     Myuren
     Leeeeeeeen !

     Feena
     I'm so happy ! Big sister... ...I can't believe... So, miracles do
     happen after all...

     Justin
     The spirits have brought it.. Happiness... to everyone around the
     world...

     Feena
     You're wrong Justin...
     The one who brought it, Justin...

     It was you !

Jason
-----
 I'm originally from the Philippines and I came to America in 1992. 
I can speak Filipino, another dialect called Pangasinan, and of 
course, English. I recently graduated from the University of Nevada 
with a B.A. in Journalism. As far as Japanese, I only studied it 
for a year at the university but I did a lot of self-study at home 
and I regularly have conversations with my Japanese friends here. 
My hobbies are (this is starting to sound like some stupid match 
making ad) writing, drawing, painting, photography, cooking, 
playing the occassional video game and studying Japanese. I like 
a lot of games but my all time favorite is the Ninja Ryukenden 
series (Ninja Gaiden in America) for the good old NES (if I list 
all the games I like there won't be any space). My sign is... 
yeah right !

for about 3 years (and is still studying ^_^). He started his 
own Grandia translation page on June 12th, 1998. On Nov. 11, 
1998 Jason contacted him to discuss the idea of merging the 
2 separate Grandia translations together and creating a 
central site, and thus his involvement with the Alent Project 
began.

in short. My 1st language is Spanish and the second is Catalan 
(Catalonia's language). About japanese, I only know "katakana", 
"hiragana" and a no long "kanji" list (that I'm now enlarging). 
I'm a very big RPG fan and of course, GRANDIA is one of my

 Dyne is a 18 year old hoser from Canada, who was shipped

back with the attitude that he has the Mad Skillz (tm) in 
Japanese to help with this translation. His current favorite 
games are Grandia, Lunar: TSS (Sega CD), FF6 and Dracula X: 
Nocturne in the Moonlight. His current wish is that SoA would 
translate Grandia so that he can stop sitting in front of 
the screen staring at too many kanji trying to convince 
himself he understands, but this translation is the next 
best thing. Movies: Anything by Studio Ghibli, and Gattaca 
is his current fav. Music: EBTG, Cardigans, and UA.
